We have ourselves a few generations of digital natives by now. We have the entire political media jumping up and down at the suggestion that information we give freely to companies who are dodgy as Facebook and Google, is being monitored, with the deification of Snowden and tin hats flying we are supposed to be awake at night with the idea a nation loosing it’s reach can somehow control you with the information you share willingly. You mention the word porn and everyone is demanding the government step in to control the internet.

Porn and filmed abuse are different first. In order to protect our children from either we are going to have to educate them honestly for the world they live in. You don’t stumble across images of children being abused, you seek them out. And we are going to have to address the culture that creates our nasty porn, the stuff taht is little to do with healthy sex, because that is the problem. Telling your computer to avoid images of people having sex, is not really the best way to address that. and the government are not based placed to do it.
