Miss Fiasco. For computers.
Computers aren't just a machine that we have fun on. Computers are a tool to write and format documents on. Computers are a device to create pictures and music with, and are therefore a means of artistic expression. And, of course, computers also let us have access to the Internet.
The Internet is the greatest achievement in all of human history. Not only does it connect us to billions of other people around the world, but these connections allow us to view news in real time, discuss events with others in seconds, and share pictures, music, text, videos, and other information.
To take away the freedom to own a computer would be to stifle human communication. Whether that communication is useful or pointless, for good or for evil, all people have the right to free expression and information. Why would you take that away?
