The Danger of Censoring Child Pornography
Child pornography is not always bad. Large-scale censorship and sexual abuse of children however are. They are highly unethical and should both be taken care of. In this essay I will explain some serious problems with censorship taking the example of child pornography.
by Roger Le Marié

«The copyright lobby absolutely loves child pornography» is the title of an article on the website torrentfreak.com, published on the 9th of July 2011. TorrentFreak describes itself as a «place where ‹breaking news›, ‹BitTorrent› and ‹copyright› collide». They strongly advocate the file sharing protocol ‹BitTorrent› and other peer-to-peer technologies and question censorship and certain types of copyright protection.

[ Before you continue reading consider that the following article contains adult language and graphics.  If you are offended by adult language and graphics leave this website now or continue at your own risk…

In their article they reproach the copyright industry to advocate large-scale online censorship by deliberately abusing childporn’s bad image. And this not because they have primarily ethical concerns about child abuse (but rather financial gains in mind?). And by expanding censorship in a second step to file sharing they are about to try – through the ‹backdoor› so to speak – to prevent illegal file sharing and pirating which is their real goal.

Now there is no question that BitTorrent has already proven to be an excellent tool for file sharing. And file sharing by itself is nothing unethical. In contrary, it is a great tool for knowledge exchange, resource economics and crowdsourcing for example. However the copyright industry observes with fury, that there is not only legal sharing but to a certain extend also sharing of copyrighted and pirated material.

The huge problem is that the introduction of large-scale censorship brings a lot of serious problems with it. One being that the abuse of children for porn is definitely not solved in the least. Therefore the strategy of the copyright industry is dangerous on different levels. This essay does not deny that there is some problematic file sharing of copyrighted material. But it tries to explain in simple terms why large-scale censorship of child pornography does not solve the problem but introduces much more serious problems on a whole new level…

«Pedophiles can’t really help what they get turned on by. I would much rather give them a safe outlet for it, than to have them exploit or harm real children.»
                            Brian Cuban (www.briancuban.com)

There exist pedophiles. This is a fact we can and will not change. Ever. Being pedophile also is not a crime. It is no crime to have a certain sexual preference. Sexually abusing children on the other hand is a very ferocious crime. It’s of utmost importance to keep those two things apart.

Another fact is: as long as there are pedophiles there will most probably be a demand for child pornography. And where a demand is, there is usually also a supply. Data can be exchanged in a lot of ways. And not all have to be exchanges over the internet. You could for example directly swap self burned compact discs or USB-Sticks or even harddiscs and whole servers for that matter. One could also create bluetooth or wireless networks for special purposes. Imagine closed wireless hot spots in places where pedophiles meet. Or create and promote a website amongst pedophiles that publishes each month a random, artificial codeword standing for ‹childporn›, for example ‹Cauliflowerblossoms›. And then you could publish encrypted childporn under the codename «Cauliflowerblossoms» and every pedophile would easily find it no matter how strong your internet filters are. «Circumventing censorship» results in 6’200’000 hits on Google. «Circumventing internet filters» yields 2’000’000 hits. Probably you could also go with an anonymizer tool to servers in foreign jurisdictions, order your films online and let them be sent by snailmail. You see, one has not to be a specialist in the field of bypassing censorship. There exist most probably dozens of ways to exchange files avoiding internet filters…

It becomes quickly painfully obvious that large-scale censorship would punish a lot of netizens because of the misbehavior of only a few criminals. It’s purpose would be pretty much what has been described by some people as a kind of ‹blindfold› that enables the normal internet user to ignore childporn while the childporn market would continue to flourish… Censorship would support the ignorance of child abuse without preventing it!

As censorship and internet filters can easily be circumvented it appears safe to conclude that they will not make the childporn market disappear either. Just the distribution channels would change. What strategy then would effectively help preventing children from being sexually abused? How would we have to apply a possible strategy to actually work? And what should we do with people that still engage in improper behavior?

Pedophile is not the same as pedosexual.
(Quote taken from Wikipedia, 2011-07-15)

Strategies against child abuse would obviously have to deal with two major problem areas: The abuse of children by pedophiles and the abuse of children by the porn industry.

But the pure demonization of pedophiles as it is happening right now will most probably not keep children from being abused. Why? Because even the most severe prosecution and punishment won’t override our natural, strong sexual drive. The sexual instinct is – much the same as our survival instinct – one of men’s strongest compulsions.

The best solution would most probably be to replace children through actors or avatars. In real as well as in virtual life. And as the health and wellbeing of kids has preference over the image, that sex with children is (correctly seen as) abnormal, this could be a valid solution.

What means ‹replacing children through actors or avatars›? It could mean for example that there is an official offer of prostitutes, telemarketers etc. dressing and or behaving like children as a professional service to pedophiles. At this point let’s repeat again, that this makes only sense in the overall context with the best safety for children in mind as the overriding argument for ‹sick› behavior!

Child pornography could also be drawn as sexually explicit comics and animations. This is the case with japanese hentai, 18-kin, seijin manga and ero anime. Or it could be animated in 3D modeling programs the way the films ‹Toy Story› or ‹Final Fantasy› were. There could even be children residents created in virtual worlds like Linden Lab’s ‹Second Life› or other metaverses that enable a live interaction between two characters.

Important with the above mentioned strategy is to realize that this rather simple idea solves a quite complex problem leading to a win-win-win situation. It would not only be of a big advantage for children but also for pedophiles and even the commercial porn industry!

«A realistic goal for a [successful] therapy is the handling of the pedophiles own tendencies within legal boundaries, a second one is the control of [his/her] impulses»
     Claus Buddeberg (physician, experienced with pedophiles)

Of course an essay like this one can only serve as an initiate inspiration but in no way as a detailed strategy paper. There would have several steps to be taken before this strategy can work properly in full effect. Steps for example like spreading, explaining and evaluating the idea, developing a detailed action plan, conducting scientific studies, educating all parties involved and changing the legal framework. And also precautions to rule out a backfiring of the strategy. Interesting would be if the chance of actually acting out sexual fantasies in real life increases or lowers after consumption of virtual porn or if the showing of child pornography to young children could be abused to convince them to engage in similar behavior. How to prevent those scenarios and other details can be worked out by the respective professionals. One should definitely not have naive expectations. A realistic, critical view on the strategy is necessary and does not declassify it, in contrary, it validates it!

This being said, the above described strategy should probably be based on four simultaneous actions: prevention, education, care and repression.

No doubt, a great deal of pressure could be taken off of pedophiles by providing valid possibilities to legally live their sexuality. This pressure release could psychologically be used to advertise legal, easily accessible distribution channels by word-of-mouth recommendation in private, discrete ways not too disturbing to the general public. One such channel could – ironically – be a special peer-to-peer network for pedophiles based on BitTorrent in which they could trade, exchange, advertise and order ‹legal child pornography› meaning child pornography not involving any real children in its production. This kind of pornography should not only be internationally legalized as an accompanying measure but actively advertised amongst pedophile circles. The effect would likely be a substancial part of the child porn industry switching from risky, low turnover ‹real child› porn to risk-free high turnover ‹avatar child porn› production with quickly increasing turnover because of significantly lower security, production and distribution cost.

Beside the legalizing of ‹artificial› child pornography all other known supports and treatments to help pedophiles should be kept alive: Cognitive behavioral therapy («relapse prevention»), behavioral interventions, pharmacological interventions…

But what should happen to pedophiles and porn industry that continue abusing children for their aims? Here comes our fourth strategic pillar into play: repression. Of course also negative motivation is a legit and strong way to convince all parties to engage in more lawful than unlawful action. That’s why draconian extradition laws and penalties should be imposed on all people still engaging in producing, distributing or buying ‹real child› porn in combination with the other measures mentioned above. For the success of the overall strategy it is very important to understand that all measures have to be realized in the right spot at the right time.

«We should always see censorship, actually, as a very positive sign, and attempts towards censorship as a sign that society is not yet completely sewn up . . . but still has some political dimension to it.
For example – what people think and believe and feel and the words that they listen to, actually matters.»
                   Julian Assange ( Wikileaks
@ Trotsky Club, London)

People propagating the idea of this essay should go about very careful and delicately. For opposition it is all too easy to single out one argument of the solution and make it look like a real evil minded program.

Still, very similar strategies have already been proven to work like for example in drug politics. Why shouldn’t it work here, too? Hopefully with the result of an augmented quality of life for pedophiles and last but not least an enhanced safety of our children and their children. <<<

Abuse of children and pornography are not only both topics that are very private and taboo but also very contrary to each other: one is about extreme suffering, one about extreme pleasure. For reasons of piety and respect, the following video and picture were not incorporated into the above essay.

The following film is not drawn in the conventional way. The figures are animated. No real actors ever played in this film. No real adults. No real children. Just animation. It illustrates what can be done, how realistic figures and movements can be rendered today. The porn industry is no small industry. Pedophiles could be a fresh client segment. I don't say this in a condescending way, in contrary. It could and should be a win-win-win situation: Pedophiles get porn to be at least partially capable of living their sexual preference, the industry gets new business and by also raising repression quite a bit, children – and this is the most important part and has therefore to be strongly insured and secured – get safety from harm. In addition the public gets freedom: no censorship at the backend. The frontend is something else. If somebody wants to install a parental filter on his / her own computer they have complete control of, that's fine.

Panic on the streets of London.
by Laurie Penny

I’m huddled in the front room with some shell-shocked friends, watching my city burn. The BBC is interchanging footage of blazing cars and running street battles in Hackney, of police horses lining up in Lewisham, of roiling infernos that were once shops and houses in Croydon and in Peckham. Last night, Enfield, Walthamstow, Brixton and Wood Green were looted; there have been hundreds of arrests and dozens of serious injuries, and it will be a miracle if nobody dies tonight. This is the third consecutive night of rioting in London, and the disorder has now spread to Leeds, Liverpool, Bristol and Birmingham. Politicians and police officers who only hours ago were making stony-faced statements about criminality are now simply begging the young people of Britain’s inner cities to go home. Britain is a tinderbox, and on Friday, somebody lit a match. How the hell did this happen? And what are we going to do now?

In the scramble to comprehend the riots, every single commentator has opened with a ritual condemnation of the violence, as if it were in any doubt that arson, muggings and lootings are ugly occurrences. That much should be obvious to anyone who is watching Croydon burn down on the BBC right now. David Lammy, MP for Tottenham, called the disorder 'mindless, mindless'. Nick Clegg denounced it as 'needless, opportunistic theft and violence'. Speaking from his Tuscan holiday villa, Prime Minister David Cameron – who has finally decided to return home to take charge - declared simply that the social unrest searing through the poorest boroughs in the country was "utterly unacceptable." The violence on the streets is being dismissed as ‘pure criminality,’ as the work of a ‘violent minority’, as ‘opportunism.’ This is madly insufficient. It is no way to talk about viral civil unrest. Angry young people with nothing to do and little to lose are turning on their own communities, and they cannot be stopped, and they know it. Tonight, in one of the greatest cities in the world, society is ripping itself apart.

Violence is rarely mindless. The politics of a burning building, a smashed-in shop or a young man shot by police may be obscured even to those who lit the rags or fired the gun, but the politics are there. Unquestionably there is far, far more to these riots than the death of Mark Duggan, whose shooting sparked off the unrest on Saturday, when two police cars were set alight after a five-hour vigil at Tottenham police station. A peaceful protest over the death of a man at police hands, in a community where locals have been given every reason to mistrust the forces of law and order, is one sort of political statement. Raiding shops for technology and trainers that cost ten times as much as the benefits you’re no longer entitled to is another. A co-ordinated, viral wave of civil unrest across the poorest boroughs of Britain, with young people coming from across the capital and the country to battle the police, is another.

Months of conjecture will follow these riots. Already, the internet is teeming with racist vitriol and wild speculation. The truth is that very few people know why this is happening. They don’t know, because they were not watching these communities. Nobody has been watching Tottenham since the television cameras drifted away after the Broadwater Farm riots of 1985. Most of the people who will be writing, speaking and pontificating about the disorder this weekend have absolutely no idea what it is like to grow up in a community where there are no jobs, no space to live or move, and the police are on the streets stopping-and-searching you as you come home from school. The people who do will be waking up this week in the sure and certain knowledge that after decades of being ignored and marginalised and harassed by the police, after months of seeing any conceivable hope of a better future confiscated, they are finally on the news. In one NBC report, a young man in Tottenham was asked if rioting really achieved anything:

"Yes", said the young man. "You wouldn't be talking to me now if we didn't riot, would you?"

"Two months ago we marched to Scotland Yard, more than 2,000 of us, all blacks, and it was peaceful and calm and you know what? Not a word in the press. Last night a bit of rioting and looting and look around you."
Eavesdropping from among the onlookers, I looked around. A dozen TV crews and newspaper reporters interviewing the young men everywhere.

There are communities all over the country that nobody paid attention to unless there had recently been a riot or a murdered child. Well, they’re paying attention now.

Tonight in London, social order and the rule of law have broken down entirely. The city has been brought to a standstill; it is not safe to go out onto the streets, and where I am in Holloway, the violence is coming closer. As I write, the looting and arson attacks have spread to at least fifty different areas across the UK, including dozens in London, and communities are now turning on each other, with the Guardian reporting on rival gangs forming battle lines. It has become clear to the disenfranchised young people of Britain, who feel that they have no stake in society and nothing to lose, that they can do what they like tonight, and the police are utterly unable to stop them. That is what riots are all about.

Riots are about power, and they are about catharsis. They are not about poor parenting, or youth services being cut, or any of the other snap explanations that media pundits have been trotting out: structural inequalities, as a friend of mine remarked today, are not solved by a few pool tables. People riot because it makes them feel powerful, even if only for a night. People riot because they have spent their whole lives being told that they are good for nothing, and they realise that together they can do anything – literally, anything at all. People to whom respect has never been shown riot because they feel they have little reason to show respect themselves, and it spreads like fire on a warm summer night. And now people have lost their homes, and the country is tearing itself apart.

Noone expected this. The so-called leaders who have taken three solid days to return from their foreign holidays to a country in flames did not anticipate this. The people running Britain had absolutely no clue how desperate things had become. They thought that after thirty years of soaring inequality, in the middle of a recession, they could take away the last little things that gave people hope, the benefits, the jobs, the possibility of higher education, the support structures, and nothing would happen. They were wrong. And now my city is burning, and it will continue to burn until we stop the blanket condemnations and blind conjecture and try to understand just what has brought viral civil unrest to Britain. Let me give you a hint: it ain’t Twitter.

I’m stuck in the house, now, with rioting going on just down the road in Chalk Farm. Ealing and Clapham and Dalston are being trashed. Journalists are being mugged and beaten in the streets, and the riot cops are in retreat where they have appeared at all. Police stations are being set alight all over the country. This morning, as the smoke begins to clear, those of us who can sleep will wake up to a country in chaos. We will wake up to fear, and to racism, and to condemnation on left and right, none of which will stop this happening again, as the prospect of a second stock market clash teeters terrifyingly at the bottom of the news reports. Now is the time when we make our choices. Now is the time when we decide whether to descend into hate, or to put prejudice aside and work together. Now is the time when we decide what sort of country it is that we want to live in. Follow the #riotcleanup hashtag on Twitter. And take care of one another.  <<<

Everyone and no one wants to save the world 

When the world extended to one's surrounding hills and mountains and over them was only legend, saving the world was approchable and a natural activity to all of independent character.

You do not need to justify the possession of these noble instincts. Such attributes are normally distributed. You have a constellation of these attributes and that makes you who you are. Recognise that the substantial ones are invariant.

You must satisfy your invariant instincts or you will be at odds with your own character. It is only when we are not at odds with our basic makeup that we can find life meaningful. 

Julian Assange way, way back in time…

To exercise your instinct for saving the world, requires saving what you perceive to be the world.

Being modern, educated and wordly, the world you perceive is immense and this is disempowering compared to the valley world of your ancestors where your feelings were forged and where saving 10 people saved 10% of the "world"'s population.

Here lays the difficulty in actualising your character. Your perception is of a world so vast that that you can not envisage your actions making a meaningful difference.

People try to fool themselves and others into believing that one can ``think globally and act locally', however to anyone with a sense of proportion (not most people, btw) thinking globaly makes acting locally seem to be a marginal activity. It's not setting the world to rights.

To meaningfully interact with the world, you have to either constrain your perception of what it is back to valley proportions by eschewing all global information (most of us here have engaged on just the opposite course which is what has provoked this discussion), losing your sense of perspective, or start seriously engaging with the modern perception of the world.

That latter path can be hard to find, because it is only satisfied by creating ideas or inventions that have a global impact. Perhaps I have found one, and there's others out there, but for most people of your character a combination of eschewing knowledge of those parts of the world they can't change, and robust engagement with the parts they can is probably optimal. 

Matrix reloaded. Can the ONE safe the world?
Also the ONE is just a channel, a medium, between the worlds. Uniting them as one.

Life reloaded. Can no ONE safe the world?
We all – also you – self-actualize time and time again. It's called 'maturity'.

Do not be concerned about when one is to do good, who defines good, etc. Act in the way you do because to do otherwise would to be at odds would to be at odds with yourself. Being on a path true to your character carries with it a state of flow, where the thoughts about your next step come upon waking, unbidden, but welcome.

I support similarly minded people, not because they are moral agents, but because they have common cause with my own feelings and dreams.  <<<
