Disregarding laws that protect children, is the same as disregarding children

If we assess mat­ters by look­ing at actions rather than words, at the present moment our gov­ern­ment has more regard for the porn indus­try than for the law and chil­dren. US Code, Title 10, para­graph 1470  states:

Who­ever, using the mail or any facil­ity or means of inter­state or for­eign com­merce, know­ingly trans­fers obscene mat­ter to another indi­vid­ual who has not attained the age of 16 years, know­ing that such other indi­vid­ual has not attained the age of 16 years, or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title, impris­oned not more than 10 years, or both.

This law is sim­ply dis­re­garded. I con­sider myself a mod­er­ate, polit­i­cally and oth­er­wise. I am a strong sup­porter of the First Amend­ment, but Inter­net obscen­ity as it relates to chil­dren has gone over-the-top.  I have been on school and drug boards and a city youth com­mis­sion, and I have never seen such cal­lous dis­re­gard for the well-being of chil­dren on such a mas­sive scale. We are wit­ness­ing the mass exploita­tion of chil­dren in our gen­er­a­tion, in our very homes, under our very noses. The gov­ern­ment refuses to enforce clear laws to pro­tect children.

Are we going to sim­ply let this hap­pen, or are we going to make a stand on behalf of chil­dren and our future soci­ety? We don’t need to be putting peo­ple in prison for 10 years, but we do need to put a stop to allow­ing the porn indus­try to freely dis­trib­ute hard-core obscen­ity into our homes, if we don’t want it.
