Are you proposing that the industry forego the precedent set forth by President Grover Cleveland with regard to tangible saber-rattling? You may want to rethink your position.
All right wingers have is Big Government nanny-Statism not free market capitalism solutions.

A tongue in cheek re-write...

Simple argument, all forms of gun ownership should be totally banned by the government. Here’s why

1) it is intrinsically evil:
The sexual act is ordered towards procreation and all procreation is entitled to life without fear. It damages the soul to kill another living soul.

2) There is rampant abuse of guns in the industry: many gun owners take drugs in order to shoot people/animals without conscience. Many gun users have been abused as children and turn to guns to sooth their fears further perpetuating their trauma

3) it is impossible to regulate:
it is impossible to determine who owns a gun or not as there is no gun owner's register. There are videos of people being killed with guns which destroy the lives of the victims families and forever associate their names with depictions of violence. More disturbingly many searches for videos contain words like “kill” or “shoot” meaning the searcher is looking for videos of content that it at least identical to a fantasy of violent assault.

4) These websites often market to children and are easily accessible to minors. There have been many children who have used firearms against fellow students in school shootings.

That idea works for so many things

Simple argument, all forms of religion should be totally banned by the government.

1) it is intrinsically evil:
The vast majority of evil acts in the world and throughout history are commited by religious people. Religion is also used to justify many atrocities, from wars to hate crimes.

2) There is rampant abuse of the minors and women in the religious world: many religions have been found to shelter child sex abusers, and also encourage child marriages and rape.

3) it is impossible to regulate:
Religious fundamentalism thrives underground, the more is is regulated, the more likely suicide bombers do their thing.

4) Religious material is often market to children and are easily accessible to minors. If RJ Reynolds started a website where teens could just mail order cigarettes with no ID and no age verification there would be hell to pay, why is it different? Cigarettes are way less harmful than religion. Children cannot legally consent to view such tracts.

This is precisely the same as implying that because some people kill people with guns, all guns should be banned.
people should be banned

Simple argument, all forms of internet pornography should be totally banned by the government. I should say all porn but I’ll stick to internet for now. Here’s why

1) it is intrinsically evil:
The sexual act is ordered towards procreation and unity towards the partners, any deviation is disordered, disordered acts are evil because they are not good. It damages the soul to view pornography
Any scripture to support your position that it's evil? Because by your definition of evil (any deviation is disordered therefore evil) paints with a pretty broad brush.

Do you have any idea how big of a black market you would create? There would be porn mafias.
Isn't it already a black market?

There’s something called RICO for that.

Banning porn would overnight create 100’s of millions of criminals, cost a shit ton of money to enforce, and create a massive black market that makes prohibition ill gained wealth in a year a good hour for organized crime selling porn.

1) it is intrinsically evil:
The sexual act is ordered towards procreation and unity towards the partners, any deviation is disordered, disordered acts are evil because they are not good. It damages the soul to view pornography

2) There is rampant abuse of the actors in the industry: many pornographic actresses take drugs in order to shoot the scenes. Many actresses and actors have been sexually abused as children and their participation in porn is furthering their trauma

3) it is impossible to regulate:
it is impossible to determine whether or not the performers in every single internet video uploaded to video browsing sites have given full legal consent and are legal adults. In many cases there are videos of revenge porn posted which destroy the lives of the victims and forever associate their names with depictions or intimate moments they believed were private. More disturbingly many searches for videos contain words like “rape” or “gangbang” meaning the searcher is looking for videos of content that it at least identical to a fantasy of sexual assault. Many other search terms commonly used on browsers express an interest in seeing teenaged girls.

4) These websites often market to children and are easily accessible to minors. If RJ Reynolds started a website where teens could just mail order cigarettes with no ID and no age verification there would be hell to pay, why is it different? Cigarettes are way less harmful then porn. Children cannot legally consent to view such images. If some guy in a trench coat was at the park handing out Penthouse there would be an uproar. Yet internet porn is worse.

Common defenses made by wankers and misguided libertarians include:

“Well it’s not harming anyone”

well I just showed multiple ways it does

“but muh first amendment”

your first amendment was never written to protect pornography. It was written to protect political speech conveying ideas. Pornography does not contain political ideas. The founders were not considering protecting your right to watch children getting raped on porn sites.

“people will do it anyway”
So the F what?

“well let’s see your browser history you bible thumping hypocrite”

PM me with some way you can look at my history and we’ll discuss it, but even if I did look at porn, which I regrettably used to do but fortunately no longer do, it does not mean any argument I make is wrong. the Amor lives in LA and in her neighborhood when people get on the freeway they drive fast, I get on the 405 and pull 80 mph and people are still passing me, does this mean I’m wrong to support speed limits? No it does not.
Conclusion, internet pornography should be totally outlawed no exceptions
Looks like this guy doesn't know how the internet works.

Like have you heard about TOR and VPNs which can access the dark web?

You can get rid of porn on the regular internet, but it will always be there on the hidden internet.

Let me finish my current session, and maybe the one after that and will give this some much needed thought.
On second thought, hold all my calls.

Surely you can understand why someone who is on DP record as professing " there is no such thing as marital rape", who starts a thread such as this raises many eyebrows? Yes?
You know, I can go ALL ****ING DAY without learning what EMN's particular porn fetishes are.

I think the funny thing is that most people who have views like his are usually using those views to cover up some freaky shit.

Yup.

Wasn't there some Pastor who was against gays who was found in a gay scandal?

Oh yeah.


I wonder if those who are against porn or such have skeletons in their closet.
