Perversion and the Internet

The Internet. An information super-highway to hate, violence, and child pornography. Sure it was ok when the nudie pictures came out, but teaching children racism and bigotry and exploiting innocent children in a sexual manner is taking things a little too far. Buckle your seatbelts and strap on those eyeglasses; we are about to take a ride on the “Informational Highway”.

The First Amendment has been stretched, ripped, and torn into little pieces of propaganda, conveniently located on the “World-Wide-Web” for the viewing pleasures of all; young and old. In the last decade, more than ever, children are being taught how to make bombs, start race wars within their communities, get away with murder, and how to make crystal-meth in their kitchen sink. There are a continuously growing number of web sites that preach violence and hate; promoting violent extremism of all stripes, and the most disturbing of all is the children who are being exposed and exploited in pornographic detail. There is no denying that this is changing the world in which we live at a rapid pace. Hate crime statistics and child pornography rings have increased substantially since the popularity of the Internet.

Even if it were electronically feasible to keep these types of sites off the Internet, the international nature of this medium makes legal regulation virtually impossible. Furthermore, in the United States, the First Amendment guarantees the right of freedom of speech to all Americans, even those whose opinions are reprehensible. Consequently, Governments, corporations, and people of goodwill have looked for alternative ways to address the problem.

Consequently, the decision to host violent, or child pornography sites is theirs alone. Whatever their motivation, some have elected to host perverts and haters, while others require subscribers to sign contractual terms of service which prohibit using their facilities to promote sex and bigotry.[1]

It’s a far to familiar story. A child visiting a chat room, thinking he or she is making a new friend, gets to know someone who they think is another curious child like themselves. They decide to meet their new friend only to be raped and killed by another “Cyber- Pedophile”. It happens to adults as well, although children have always been vulnerable to victimization. Their trusting nature and naiveté make them perfect targets for perpetrators- both people they know and those they don’t. As...
