I have been following with interest the argument that we should block pornography at the source. The argument appears to be that it would stop vulnerable children from coming into contact with porn if we were to block it at the source. I do wonder, however, whether it is such a good idea to start censoring peoples viewing habits. Whilst I can appreciate some people might want to block porn completely, if you don’t want to view it, you don’t have to. If the government were to start censoring certain web pages, however, I wonder where it would stop. I have the feeling it would start with hard core pornography and before we know it we would find there are many other sites that we can no longer access because they are deemed not appropriate by the government. Personally I would rather choose what I want to view without restrictions, if we get into this type of censorship its a slippery slope before we go the same way as a country such as China which simply blocks any content which doesn’t tow the party line.
