    Here we go again. A porn producer is being persecuted ... I mean prosecuted by the US government for "obscenity".

    Here's a link with an interview with the producer.


    Now here's how I see this:

    People want to voluntarily watch his porn productions. Period. No one is making people watch this. Jesus Christ, leave the man alone!

    I think we're in trouble when the Government gets to decide what we can watch.

    "Censored for your protection" seems to be a trapping of Soviet Russia or Communist China, not the USA.

    So, lock up your porn stash before they decide to ban it.

    In Liberty,

    Crock o' shit= our government on most occasions. If this becomes illegal, I'm going to move into the redwood forest and live in a tent. And weave.

    At least you'll go peacefully, some people will fight back when they get pushed far enough. Trust me I know some of them. They are ... frighteningly prepared for anything short of nuclear disaster.

    Well, if they're compelled to fight back cool. I think dropping out of society is a form of fighting back...It demonstrates not buying into society's bullshit, in my opinion. I think everyone does this in their own way. I'm not a fighter. I'm the kind of person who will protest, but ultimately, if I don't get my way, I'll go off and do my own thing anyway, just more quietly. I don't think that the banning will go over anyway. They've tried things like this before. But, then again, the war on 'terrorism' and 'drugs' really disproves my point. If our government can call war on an idea, then were ultimately fucked anyway.

    Have you read Atlas Shrugged? That is essentially what the story is about. The geniuses of society disappear and society unravels. If not, I recommend it. It can be very ... preachy, but the ideas in it are powerful. Hell it's the second most influential book after the Bible.

    Hun, if 1200 pages scared me away, I'd be out of college right now. It supposed to be one of the longest novels ever, which is cool. :) A good long book never hurt anybody, and liking to read can't hurt either. I'm ready for anything.

    Australia. Our censorship laws are far more lenient than the US's.

    Damn the christian right. Let's all take a sigh of relief that it's almost over. It's been like a 7 year hostage crisis.
