Defeating porn in the world
« on: April 22, 2015, 05:09:40 PM »
You will excuse me, perhaps. But hey, THIS is the place where a movement of consciousness could begin to change the world. Yes, excuse my idealism if you can.

Porn is a problem. I read and hear people say it's not evil, but I think there's now enough material to begin to say that it is indeed, evil. Yes, sex is a natural beautiful thing, but not when it si deprived of intimacy, shown on video with the sole purpose of making money, addicting people, arousing excitement for the sake of it. Porn is watched by children now, as a teacher I know it. Children get phones with internet or computers when they are 10 years old or younger, who will keep them away from porn? Do we really think "they will get to know it sooner or later, so why worrying too much"? Children and adolescents have their lives heavily influenced, sometimes disrupted by porn; shall we just accept it? Porn becomes an addiction. Porn is a problem.

I think women could help men in this, help them understand, help them come to realize that change is needed. We could protest together.
Yes, I'm suggesting a protest.
Sites such as this one, together with the studies of universities that demonstrate the bad effects of porn, could do something.
 
No, I don't think porn will be stopped or banned, I'm not so naive. And I'm not so fundamentalist to suggest the total abolition of porn. But hey, can we at least fight, struggle as hard as we can to write big on the front page of porn sites that they cause all sorts of disfunctions, they are unhealthy, they are not just unsuitable, but really deleterious for children and adolescents, just as we write such warnings on cigarette packs? Can't we struggle to urge governments to put extremely harder restrictions on porn in the internet and the other medias? Can't we struggle to raise consciousness on the fact that porn IS a problem, and it shouldn't be ignored? I think we can, but we need women, because most men (myself included) are weakened by their own ambiguity towards porn, a drug they like and think they can deal with.

Many things could be done, I think we all know it, even though I may have sound exaggerated.
After all, just to make an example, everyone who deals with online banking, that is virtually every adult with a bank account, knows that you need to have a special agreement with a bank, you need to get a controlled account, to get a pin number, a code, connected with your name. The bank is controlled by the state, and the bank knows and must know that you are an adult, and therefore can give you an account: can't we suggest similar systems for porn use, to save minors? Other instance: alcohol is sold only to adults and infringments of this law is justly punished; can't we suggest governments similar restrictions for porn-dealers (that's how porn companies sound in my mind).

What I wrote are just some ideas, to restrict porn, not necessarily to eliminate it, just as we do with widely accepted drugs. But it has to have much, MUCH stronger limits. Because it is indeed causing destruction, the destruction of people from the inside, even deeper than the destruction caused by physical substances. Porn strikes the personality, the individuality, the soul if you want, of people.
I think it's time to act together, to do something.

And you?

You must reduce the demand for porn more than control access.  Not easy to do.  It requires a change in heart of porn users like the people on this forum are doing.  It will require education of the masses.  It should be taught first and foremost in the home, but health effects such as PIED should be publicized everywhere. It is not a government issue, but a heart issue.

Porn is indeed evil.

I predict porn addiction will become the #1 addiction by 2025, if it isn`t already. I think many people are addicted to it but who is actually going to come out and say it publicly and start some sort of movement against it? To me the problem is not porn but the delivery system which is the Internet. Now that the Internet is free and pretty much unregulated, and that it can be accessed on phones, its impossible to stop it. What I do think would work would be to make the Internet a two tier system… one tier would be for children and one for adults and the only way to access the adult version would be to enter your SS#. At least this would create a wall of some sort, of course some kid will write a code to defeat the wall but it would require government involvement… huge issue there. And I don`t see this as happening.

Porn is here to stay so I think it comes down to the individual taking control for themselves. This will either kill us or make us stronger.
I`m at the point in my life where I see how much time I`ve wasted on the subject and its sickening. I`d rather spend my time on things that will propel me toward a future worth living, not one of darkness and isolation.

Well said Jimmy.
