Imagine our ancestors sitting around the evening fire showing their children words and imagery of violence and hard-core portrayals of women as sex objects. Most of us would consider that to be an extremely unhealthy and odd culture–one that was neither nurturing of children nor concerned about the consequences of such child rearing on the culture’s future society.
This is what our own culture is inadvertently heading towards. By only having one Internet option, our children have access to highly hardcore, inappropriate words and images that flow right into our homes. For millennia, cultures have had the common sense to protect children from words and imagery that are inappropriate for the young. It’s time for our generation’s adults to stand up and require that Congress provide us with at least one mandated Internet option that is in line with federal obscenity laws, meant among other things to protect children. We need the ability to protect our children if we want to.
