Wow, Beezer and I actually have a very similar viewpoint on something!

I mean, porn has been around since...well since people figured out how to draw naked bodies.

If I don't like a certain TV station (like one of those religious ones) .... I simply do not watch it. It isn't that hard. If I didn't want my kids to watch it, I'd monitor their activities or block the channel myself (yes you can do that). Subsequently, parents have multiple computer tools to filter and block websites.

Or, how about not having a computer in the house at all? I mean, the big, evil, scary internet is just to much of a threat to the moral fiber of our children these days!

Ironically this is a text book case of the Right's obsession with sex. I do not like porn but surely the parents or adults have a right to decide. I object to the principal of it. More nanny statism brought to you by the followers of Adam Smith (Irony of ironies).

Olives


This comparison is ridiculous. Everyone may not like olives, but it is undeniable that they are virtually harmless. Many feel that porn, on the other hand, is harmful in someway to those subjected to it, whether it be moral or psychological. So it comes down to differing opinions on the matter. Some feel porn is fine, while others don't. So it seems pretty logical to me to allow the household to choose freely whether or not they want to allow porn. And if you are truly that embarrassed to to tell the other adults in your household that you want to watch some adult movies every now and then, maybe you should reconsider your motives...

That guy's comparison is not ridiculous. Morals are subjective and I believe that olives are morally harmful.

I also believe that conspiracy theories are harmful. Same with religion. Speech concerning conspiracy theories and religions should be banned except if you opt-in to them; whereupon a national register should be created. Religions with stories depicting violence and rape -- Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc -- should be banned altogether and anyone who speaks about them should be jailed.

Just keep it out of kiddies faces. Simple.

Your point?




And if you agree or not with the proposed method of execution, that is part of the intention of this - not sure I really understand your point.

Listen as I said, I don't have a strong opinion one way or another, but all some people are going off on here is that this represents some loss of liberty which I fail to see is the case unless of course the internet contract in your house is managed by your other half who would opt out of being able to view porn (or opt in to not be able to, whatever) and you would rather have the option.


It is about adult responsibility and the fact that some people ( maybe even yourself ) are too inept or lazy
to monitor their children.

Are you alluding to the question of - ' should adults be governed to the Nth degree ' because they are incapable of making adult choices; and should be only allowed access to what another ; supposedly more "adult"
allows access to !?? (* insert any controversial subject here )

Really?

Ed: now you are committed lol !

edit on 22-7-2013 by Timely because: (no reason given)


This doesn't mean adults are governed in any way (well not more than they are now), people are making a mountain out of a molehill for the sake of it from what I can see.

Remember in the UK this government was making parents allow children in School do sex lessons, no choice there, we are being made to prepare our people to go Muslim, I think riots are badly late in starting by British whites, our parents went to WAR twice to keep this country free, yet Cameron is doing what Hitler was not able to do, we cannot let this happen.



This move started under the Labour government, but I guess it doesn't ring so true to think about that for you? BTW, I don't think internet porn was around when Hitler was.... unless you know different?

I think watching porn can be harmful but when has banning something ever worked? If anything it will make kids want it more. Building a society where people have more productive ways to entertain their boredom or experience true beauty is the answer.

I somewhat agree with Cameron on this Issue..... its definately too easy for Youngsters to watch Porn and definately there are some nasty Videos and photos online (not that i view this stuff, I just know its out there).... so definately some Sites need to get banned and those people running them get arrested and Sentenced!

But what I don't like about this is the fact that those who want to watch a normal porn movie will mos likely have to give their Name, address, D.O.B which will be very Unpopular and very nosey! Also, I think Cameron and his Cronies will come up with some 'Porn Tax' eventually......

Where there is new Technology, we will get those who use it for Nefarious means.... and usually they are pretty nasty people!

And so... If you are over 18 and living at your parents house... You need to ask your parents to opt out of the censorship otherwise... no porn , adult nature websites , over 18 games , movies ... to be honest...many sites will be affected by this... not just porn sites


Thats a big issue

People will need to talk to the family about things they shouldnt need to...

"Dad... i want to order my girlfriend some lingerie... but mr cameron wont let me until you opt out of cencorship for the household"

My oh my... thats bad... just think of the issues


sorry , was a quick post... my dads calling me ... my dinners ready!!


ps ..... im 27 and dont live at home.... but i dont want mr cameron knowing who needs porn to be allowed to there house.... thats invasion of privacy 100% in my opinion _javascript:icon('

Some enterprising teens are going to make a FORTUNE selling porn to their blocked friends....


This will go over about as well as Prohibition....

Those who don't learn from history......and all that...


Congrats, you've just invented a new business opportunity for organized crime!
Good job!

Please. No internet when I was a kid, and we had no trouble finding VCR tapes or magazines. Whether it was parents or grandparents, uncles, etc. Today's kids have even more options, so this regulation won't do jack except force it to be on thumb drives.... Simply pointless.
(and a huge waste of taxpayer $$$)

Same argument can be made here in Canada of the govt. making choices without our consent where the federal government has deemed everyone married for those living with an opposite sex person for over a period of a year ,it's just flipping ridiculous

Stop turning everything into a metaphor and just look at the issue as it is. Radicalized comparisons in no way contribute to your argument as far as I'm concerned. And really? Olives are morally harmful? I understand morals are subjective but you're just being thick.

So, we all have to register so parents who are too dam lazy to phone their ISP and get the block put on (which all ISP's have offered for years) ?

No, if you are too lazy to 'protect' your children then you have no rights to demand an infringement of everyone else's liberty.

Maybe we should just introduce a test to see if you are too stupid to look after your children and then all fails are sterilised.

To be fair, not like the old idea of having the PC in a visible area works anymore.

Nowadays, kids have the internet on their phones, and laptops vs. desktop PCs. So easier for little Johnny to be in his room watching porn. Still though, government regulation is not the answer. Up to the parents to find ways to police it, not the government.

back in 2009-2010, I was working 12-14 hour days as a metalurgist-type-of-gig around a bunch of cave-men-type-looking pipe fitters, electricians, and welders. It was a 60 day job and it was basically a sausage fest, all men.

So here's this young 19 years old kid doing an apprenticeship with the fitters, and you wanna know what he did. He bought 500 gig external hard drives for about 100 a pop, loaded them to the brim with all the pron he saved up on his own drie, and was selling them for 375 each.

There was literally a line at his lunch table to buy these things. Once the word got out, almost everyone owned one of these things.
