Internet & Networking "Every household in Britain connected to the internet will be obliged to declare whether they want to maintain access to online pornography, David Cameron will announce on Monday." And so, the UK nanny state turns to straight up censorship. Let's look at some of the authoritarian policies that David Cameron wishes to enact.

I kind of doubt porn is in any way a realistic representation of how real sex takes place.


That's not what I was even saying. I was saying that it fulfills a need, a need that the kids will then satisfy some other way if porn isn't available. And if that other way happens to be with real people it may end real bad.

Kids envy what adults cherish : fast carz, noizy guns, bad boyz attitude, eazy money, bumpy girlz, ...

If the real value of adults were friendship, hard labor, contained ego, kids would follow that path.

But how should they with semi-naked girls are shown on the ads to promote cars, drillers, whatever ?

The whole society values should change first instead to censor the net. They should censor real life first.

In that case I doubt children go on a raping rampage if they can't watch porn.

An increasing number of adults is addicted to porn. If they can't handle it, can kids? If they see loads and loads of video I suspect it may convince a number that what they see is normal.

Again, I'm not saying the government should introduce filters to protect our kids, but I do think parents should be aware of the dangers of Internet access and that includes a lot more than porn.

You imagine the chain of action : government to censor adult's porn, so adult's become more responsible and take care of the children ? WTF ?

Adults pass a driver license before being granted access to roads with a vehicle, governments all across the globe should instate a child license to ensure you have the necessary knowledge, abilities and envy to raise kids. Just like dangerous dogs' owners now requires a license.

That would soon cut the earth population in half ? I'd say a quarter. And it won't be much of a problem after all : less jobless, less pollution, more cherished and well educated people. Reproducing like wild rabbits haven't done Mother Earth a favor in the last century.
