if not what is the problem here
The problem is that the Internet is open access.
"When a 12-year-old types 'porn' into Google, he or she is not going to find photos of naked women out on a country field, but very hardcore and brutal violence," said Halla Gunnarsdottir, political adviser to the interior minister.

"There are laws in our society. Why should they not apply to the Internet?"

Gunnarsdottir says the proposals currently being drawn up by a committee of experts will not introduce new restrictions, but simply uphold an existing if vaguely worded law.

Pornography is already banned in Iceland, and has been for decades — but the term is not defined, so the law is not enforced. Magazines such as Playboy and Penthouse are on sale in book stores, and more hardcore material can be bought from a handful of sex shops. "Adult" channels form part of digital TV packages.

Iceland's left-of-center government insists it is not setting out to sweep away racy magazines or censor sex. The ban would define pornography as material with violent or degrading content.

Although people have different views on pornography, one thing is absolutely clear, it is not the function of government to stick its oppressive nose into it.

In your view, does the government have any function at all?

In my view the function of government is to do the will of the people, and if that means protecting children from abuse and violence then so be it.

Now take a look at the vid I linked and answer my question.

The only proper function of government is social integration, like a traffic cop keeping people from running over each other, unlike your view of the government running over the people!

It's pointless arguing with you when you make moronic comments like you do.

If you've got a question, I'll answer it, but I'm not going to waste my time looking at bogus videos à la Bill Wiltrack.

Is this okay for children to view?

Again, I'm not interested in looking at your stupid fucking videos. It is not the function of government to take Chaz Wyman by the hand and lead him through life. Wait, on second thought, Chaz Wyman may be the exception to the rule.

This has nothing to do with me.
Would YOU allow a child of yours to see this video?

It doesn't matter what I, you, or anybody else would do. The question is whether the government should dictate to people how to live their lives, and by government I mean the same fucking people you wouldn't ask what time it was for fear of getting the wrong answer!

I knew you'd not have the BALLS to answer the question.

Anarchy is all very well until you buy a car with brakes that fail because the salesman has the freedom to sell what he wants; until there is a murderer in the neighbourhood but no police 'telling him what to do'; until the street lights don't work; doctors sell you bad drugs; food on sale is poisonous; ad infinitem..
until the things upon which YOU rely, day after day , are gone.

It's idiots like you who think the choice is between anarchy and government oppression. You are a born totalitarian European, and don't try to tell me or any other freedom-loving American anything different!

An Englishman invented the US. You don't know what freedom is.
