Based on feedback from Alexander Bochmann that I’d been debating myself and agree with, I’m moving Articles 4 & 5 out of the Declaration itself.
The purpose of the Declaration is put forth one specific point: constitutionally extend the definition of the self to include the technologies by which we extend our selves. Articles 4 & 5 are not constituents of that but interpretations of it. As such, they should be included in a separate document whose purpose it is specifically to explore the practical implications of The Universal Declaration of Cyborg Rights.
I’m reproducing both articles, below, for reference:
Strong encryption (and end-to-end encryption) is a basic human right as it is a necessary mechanism for safeguarding the integrity of the cyborg self and a prerequisite for personhood in the digital age. No person shall be forced to divulge the private key or password to the technologies by which they extend themselves without this constituting a violation of the integrity of the cyborg self and, thereby, their person.
Every person has a right to own and control their own space (node) on the Internet, have access to it, and be accessible from it without interference from corporations or governments. For the purposes of this declaration, this node constitutes an explant (as defined above), lies within the boundaries of the self, and is protected by the articles of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
