Porn Activists All Hot and Bothered by Internet

by Jay Allbritton
David Crary has an interesting piece on anti-porn activists such as John Harmer.

Harmer says:

It's the most profitable industry in the world. But I'm convinced we'll demonstrate in the not-too-distant future the actual physical harm that pornography causes and hold them financially accountable. That could be the straw that breaks their back.
I think Harmer is full of shit. He's just some reactionary schmuck who wants to go around banning things rather than finding sensible solutions.

War on Porn? We need that like Harry Whittington needs another hole in the head.

Still, there certainly are important social problems associated with pornography. 4 million porn sites on the Internet might be too much. ComScore Media Metrix--which sounds like a porn site but is a tracking service--says about 40 percent of Internet users in the United States check out porn sites each month.

Is that a lot? Who knows.

Point is, once again we see an issue where a problem could be addressed rationally through education and debate but instead people would rather use the political apparatus to limit our rights.

Luckily, we have Stephen Baldwin to sort this stuff out for us.
