I vow to destroy the porn industry.

Discussion in 'Porn Addiction' started by dojistar, Jul 26, 2020.

  1. Non-existent benefits? How about pleasure and entertainment? Are you really going to take a moral authoritarian approach to this? Why not just ban all recreational drugs? How about video games? There is so much bias in your statement.

    So it’s someone’s pleasure to watch this stuff, supporting all things cited above so we shouldn’t take his fun away... Poor thing he won’t be able to enjoy watching simulations of rape online. Should one’s "pleasure and entertainment" be worth the suffering and pain of other people?
    Is playing video games hurting anyone? Besides the one involved?
    Drugs I would say it depends what it involves, if it means supporting violence then no, if you grow your own weed or mushrooms who cares.
    Noone wants moral preachers but to just discard anything on the basis of you’re a "moral authoritarian" taking away our pleasure etc. without analyzing the points being made...

    Also note I’m not saying users should be considered criminals, only providers. How convenient right but I do think the responsability is not the same even though I do believe in ownership and making decisions for ourselves I also know addiction is more complicated than that. Providing such content is another level of responsability.

    Porn has been the biggest culprit it my life as far as motivation to pursue a career or a woman. Regret is the worst emotion ever. Porn addicts know what I'm talking about. It feels like someone I trusted was stealing from me for decades.

    I believe the porn industry can be brought down. With enough money it is possible. Buy off the right people.

    Then why don't we ban all things that have negative affects on humans? Why don't we make alcohol and cigarettes illegal and throw all producers and consumers of those substances in jail?

    If you make porn illegal the problem would just get worse. Are you ok with going to jail if you get caught looking at internet porn? What about teenage boys who look at porn, should we lock them up too? The truth is porn is never going to go away, the same with all drugs and everything else that is harmful to humans.

    Do you want a hug?

     
  7. It was actually a policy proposal by the Conservative government here in Britain. It very nearly became law, but they decided not to pursue it over data protection and compliance issues; "unworkable," they said.

    There was opposition from their own supporters concerned with the problem of an overbearing nanny state, while the liberals were up in arms about limitations to "sexual expression." In short, they used their pre-existing prejudices to justify their filthy love of porn.

    You took the time to write this but not to read what I wrote.

    Some more info here. It was actually a lot closer to being implemented than I thought, and it's interesting that it was actually EU law that blocked it in the end. I wonder if it will be back on the table next year?

    I agree with you.
    People, in this thread, don't realize that a kid needs only a VPN to bypass the so-called AgeID and browse porn sites as if nothing happened...
    I think the only thing that can help raise awareness about the problem of online pornography is organizing meetings in high schools and universities, as the Fight the New Drug movement does every year.

    And to be honest, not everyone who sees porn ends up as an addict. Almost every college student watches porn. I don't think they all would be addicts.

    Though that doesn't mean the addiction isn't an illness and prevalent. I guess awareness groups would help.

    If you speak against porn, people think you are an idiot.

    I can understand what you mean. But it is way more difficult than it seems. It is almost impossible to attack any industry under the current capitalist liberal system, it will always come to a dead end no matter what you do.
    The only possible way to change anything is to overthrow the actual political and socio-economic structure and replace it with another one, where industries like this one wouldn't ever dare to plant their poisonous seeds.
    There is one existent type of regime that deals with it effectively and it's communism. Because owners and companies have less privilege in comparaison to capitalist-liberal systems.
    Not that communism doesn't have it's cons and pros but one thing for sure is that under it's laws and rules, the porn industry and it's likes wouldn't blossom.

    As for the 'awarness' approach. I think it's totally lame and wouldn't change anything in the big scale. It is the same strategy that kept the tobacco industry working despite all the negative opinions against it. It will not even scratch a lobby so powerful and deeply rooted as the porn industry.

    As long as liberals control the medias, no anti-porn motivational speaker will earn fame or be taken seriously. It is as simple as that. The opposition to porn will be reduced to small vilified groups no one really wants to listen to. Anyone who sincerely believes massive changes can be made possible with raising 'awarness' is naive and a hopeless dreamer.

    As much as I appreciate fight the new drug . I don't think they can achieve what a system alteration can.

    I think awareness could have some decent impact but not destroy it obviously. Because it’s such a hidden thing most people don’t talk about, just putting some light on it would help. Cigarettes were not something kept in the dark this way I think.

    This is why I don't think awarness might work in this case. It did reduce cigarettes use but it wouldn't have such an impact of porn consumption. The best way to fight against such a disease is to combine both awarness from the part of society, and strong authoritarian measures from the system in power.

    Well, good luck with that. Should be interesting to see to say the least.
