Why I Don’t Want The Government Banning Porn

During my upbringing, many people I knew mentioned that they had always thought their government officials were supposed to be moral arbiters or at least a selection of what the community’s moral outlook was. The vast majority of our politicians were able to obscure any issues that might have sullied their image. Many times they passed laws that restricted behavior because of some necessity or at least their vocal public called for.

The irony is that people over time have thought that the government could be trusted with more decisions on our behalf. People ceded responsibility for their own lives to people that they most likely have never met. Instead of making decisions for themselves in regard to their ability to house themselves, feed themselves, and various things that affect their quality of life, people trade responsibility for themselves for their lives’ own free time. (Obviously, I think that it is stupid to use the government to enforce moral statutes).

It was within this idea that I make the following statement: I don’t want the government to ban porn. I don’t think that the government does a good job of handling moral issues. I think that people should get off their asses and handle it on the smallest level possible. (the community and the family). The government paints with either a broad-brush or an inadequate brush.

Mark my words, I think that pornography isn’t good for anyone’s neurological system. Your wiring gets re-wired, according to the non-scientists among me. It physically doesn’t add much to your life.

But the best person to determine who should/should not consume porn starts with the person, then the community.

I believe that the burden is not the government’s buy yours.
