    Interesting post conjures the what is “Porn” answer.
    It comes into the category of today’s society of previous values. Not unlike free spreech.
    What should we control and what is the guideline for community or general acceptance. It also becomes a moral issue of repsonsibility such as “does art imitate life or life imitate art” this becomes critical in assessment of control and censorship.
    Free minded people with out hang ups can understand this tolerance however we are now seeing a reversal of the liberalism, back to a renewed acceptance of the strict “not to accept or rather discuus this topic as it may lead to etc”
    Perhaps society has gone to the extreme and now can’t handle the results of freedom in practice.
    Getting back to “porn” personally I think nothing of it for it is for a minority of people out of perspective.
    If it affects a few that go crazy then that’s very sad howver the human aspect is that it is there and we need to handle it yet again for the weakest link in humanity.
    A very intersting post.
