Senate Commerce Committee's Science, Technology and Space tackeling pornography??? hmmmmm

here's my thought. it's part of a plan, or whatever you want to call it, to set up some type of policing of the internet. get online porn to be called a 'drug' ...well then add IT to the 'war on drugs' and whallla...'we need to police the internet, actually your personel use of it,...for your own saftey'

if that were to happen, why stop there..why not police those rebeliuos, conspiracy insiting bords?? aren't they bad for the population?, going around post all those lies about the govt corporations and dragging the good govts name in the mud?? don't alot of 'bloggers' and 'boards' make verbal threats or at least vieled threats about rebellion and civil war to the govt and other officials in general?? isn't that a form of terrorism?? shouldn't that kind of sidisious material be least a LITTLE bit????
come on..give us just an inch..we promise we wont let it get out of hand...we promise......

this must be why the gov is increasing reasearch into nanosatellites. to aid in the confistication of materials related to these internet "drugs" like cameras, sets, and harddrives.

Now the Americans have their excuse to put those tags in magazines and videos- they will then use these as another excuse in enact some kind of Patriot Act reason to break into people houses.

A new war- War on Porn!

Wouldn't be any porn if the 'stuff' wasn't held hostage

Maybe the government will open clinics- free for all?

What will rehab be like?

-next PA meeting (pornographers anonymous) "Well, I was b- - - - -g off three times a week until I got cured. Now I can't sleep, I'm nervous all the time but I'm going straight! I've been on the wagon for 73 hours with no relapse and hair is starting to grow on the palm of my hand."

i have a brother in law who is clinically addicted to porn.
he has 5!!!! 5 harddrives FULL!! he doesn't even go back to look at what he has downloaded! he spends ALL freetime downloading every kind of porn available to him. it IS an addiction. should it be regulated? NO! america is at fault because of our puritain values.......nudity and sex is BAD. in other countries porn and sex addiction are almost non-existant. this country tells it's people that sex is dirty,nudity is all sexual. our kids see sex as naughty. no wonder porn addiction is an actual psych disorderover here!!!

I'd say your Idea of addiction is akin to people who put away more money than they can spend in their lifetime, or collect giant balls of yarn, or other wierd collections of material wealth. It is because, no matter how much they have they feel they don't have enough.

This is why I said earlier in this thread "porn addiction" is symptomatic of a obsessive/compulsive disorder.

DSM definition of addiction:

Not all professionals share my view, but I believe that maintaining separate diagnostic categories for these problems helps to prevent confusion among the public and the politicization of these disorders. Obsessive-Compulsive disorders are generally considered to be less pernicious than addictive disorders and plastering a compulsion with the label of addiction does nothing help the problem. It only makes the sufferer seem more culpable.

Some discussions of compulsive behaviors and their similarities to addiction.

Some 'studies' show certain personalities do not mix well with certain types of porn and others don't.

Some studies show pornography to be a benefit, I wonder if congress has heard (any!)representations over that side of the story, hmmm?

Yeah right.

Maybe the real reason for all this sexual repression (as well as it invariably being a feature of just about every right-wing fascist gov there ever was) is this article.

(By the way, if it being from Pravda puts you off you might bear in mind the research is actually from Germany.)

We just can't have people actually interacting with each other doing real life and not sitting (more or less) quietly (passively?) watching the tube's version of life and being told what to think, dumbed down and spoon-fed, 24/7 now, can we?

The article you pointed me to also pointed to an even better one about what is bothering women and girls.

All men are going to the "hell" for masturbating

Correct me if im wrong but the Christian Law of condeming masturbation was introduced by one of the pope's and was not originally written in any scriptures was it not?
Does this mean the Christians of old actually accepted the art of wrestling the one eye cyclops?

They probably thought, 'well at least Jesus didn't say anything 'bout masterbation.' Then along came the Popes.

Without a doubt child abuse in this industry goes on as it did before the internet became the main source, and as mentioned numerous times on this thread, it is a deviant mind that seeks this material, and as long as the deviant mind exists there will be a greater deviant supplying these images of abuse.

I agree. The only people that want to see extremely perverted and/or illegal porn look for it because they want to see it. No matter how many times I see some of that sick twisted crap, it's never going to make me want to see it, much less do it. Those who look for it wanted to see it before they started looking for it. People minds aren't turned sick by sick porn. They're already sick, and that's why they seek it.

Personally with the speed of approaching technological advance, I wonder how virtual sexual encounters will affect this debate in the years to cum.
