I considered this conversation over, but I came back to find you are continuing your idiocy, and I cannot help but rebut it once more.

 

First of all, I am all for freedom of speech, but I also understand that pornography is not speech.

 

Second, "freedom of expression" is not in the constitution, only freedom of speech.

 

PS: Just so you know, I am a social conservative, NOT a libertarian.

Fuck commies, fuck "conservatives", and fuck libertarians.

I'd have far less problem with a law outlawing pornography than with any "know your user" shit.

Yeah, fuck librarians too. Had more than enough of their whinging about muh freeze peach and "banned books" that can be readily acquired by any idiot with the money to burn. They're part of the "holy trinity" - policemen, librarians and postal workers - that always get trotted out as nostalgia bait to threaten us with. "Oh, you don't want to shut down the government! That means no more post office or library or Officer Friendly walking his beat!" Choke on a cock and die in a fire with that retarded bullshit.

Ok that didn't go as planned.

I was trying to be funny, with the traditional stereotype of your average librarian being 25, female, and hot

In the glorious future, only hot librarians will be allowed.

I am not in favor of banning pornography, especially pornography of sexy librarians.
People much smarter than me ruled decades ago that porn is free speech, obscenity is not, though they kind of left us high and dry on the question of which is which. 'Community standards', heh. I suppose if your community decides that it doesn't want to let people watch video of an act that millions of people do every day, that's your business. In my community, we're totally fine with video of 7 midgets running a train on a senior citizen dressed up as Snow White, while 2 guys in Richard Nixon masks have a running commentary.
All good by me.

While it does come dangerously close to infringement, i'm ok with banning this specific subject in *public* if its not accepted by the majority, at the time. But as adults, no one, i repeat NO ONE, has a right to ban anything between consenting adults in private. I don't care if its images, videos, books, people talking to each other, people swinging from the ceiling, playing DND, whatever. I'm even against banning drugs IF you keep it between consenting adults, and don't impact anyone else. ( like with drinking, you don't drive around....  keep it at the bar/home, and don't come stealing my cash to pay for your booze ).

 

The reason i say its dangerously close, is if you end up with a certain kind of majority, speaking out against your government is considered obscene, and you are then screwed as then you basically have no freedom of public speech, since the government will get to decide what is ok or not, and not the majority. So even 'good intentions' can be twisted around backwards.  Its why you dont limit freedoms. Someone WILL eventually take advantage of it.

Other than the few exceptions such as slander and similar events, speech can not be restricted. Period. Does not matter what you call the speech, it needs to be left alone.  And yes, art, is a form of speech.  Even if its stupid, like pee bags with images of Jesus on them. Its art to someone, so its art.

 

 

 

And related to the original topic, I wonder what our new friend would think of about nudist camps. Should those be banned too? What about alternative religions to his, do they get free speech and free practice? Some consider wicca to be obscene ( and some Christianity.. ).  Where is this line? Who gets to win over others, and why?

A crooked court decided that porn is somehow speech. There, fixed it for you.

Well, childish name calling was uncalled for.   Feel free to live in your Utopian freedom-less authoritarian bubble based on irrelevant, outdated and twisted opinions, and ill keep my freedom.

 

I didn't let it go, as you are simply wrong and anti-free.  You from southern Russia by chance? I assumed US, but i think i might have been wrong.

But only if it complies with your personal opinions.  If it does not, then it does not get to exist and must be eradicated.  Sounds like authoritarianism to me. Not freedom. Again, where does it stop? One day you wake up and dont think men should have long hair,  as its your new opinion that its intrinsically bad and morally offensive ( which has been the case, if you studied history.. even in the US it was frowned upon ). Does that mean it gets banned and we cant even discuss it in private, in this wonderful world of yours where freedom is fleeting based on the opinion of the day?

Or, how about if a women wears pants.. Or gets to vote... Or speaks out of turn... How far back in time do you want to go? 

And if you think speech and religion are not intertwined, you are sadly deluded ( or misinformed ) and must be a product of modern public schooling.
