I don't think it's a health crisis or a moral crisis.  We have bigger fish to fry.  Look at our country. Riots in the national Capitol, corruption in government, racism, mass murder, and a dysfunctional political system.  I'm not going to worry about naked people.

It would logically cease to be porn; pornography only refers to, in the definitions I've seen, things that solely are produced to get a sexual response; so if it is also produced with the intention of being found aesthetically pleasing it would no longer be pornography as it has more than one certain goal.
That only makes sense if you're married to the idea that porn is only arousing rather the idea that porn is arousing.  That very slight difference allows for the possibility of multiple properties.

The moral crisis is the puzzling sexual repression of uber religions. People are just so goddamned stupid.
We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came.

If you are againist porn, and want to protect your children from porn; explain the evils about it and simply install a protection barrier on your browser.

There is a huge social engineering, and re-constructing of minds. Is it their moral duty to protect the public health? PUBLIC HEALTH. Who are you and what is your capacity to take this moral duty?

The best porn-blockers in the world can be defeated by the most persistent 12-year-olds (or whatever the normal number is)

Indeed, it is a heavy load that I'm not so sure these people can quite take.  Shaky conclusions built on even shakier premises.  Real health crises are self-evident; this is more like outlawing something on the grounds that someone doesn't approve of it, which is the exact same reasoning the Taliban uses.  They need to prove that porn is harmful, (and on the other hand, that masturbation is harmful) and next, that it can be blocked for everyone, and finally, that this is a desirable outcome.

In a society whose members internalize the true requirements of Democracy, It is by rational arguments and by persuasion to make other members convinced of your point of wiev on anything and everything. If they disagree with you, they contribute their arguments, and there is no an internal need for settlement. Wide variety of opinions must exist, in a democratic society, so the culture flourishing around a true democracy is the way to true civilization. Every society and even every community has a culture, a culture doesnt necessarily lead to a civilization, in the way we understand civilisation in this age.

But brainwashed radicals who think of their understanding on the best way to live the life, even afterlife, their first approach is to kindly call for joining them. If you disagree with their ideology, other tactics may be adopted.

I dont understand the hysteria that everybody in the world must think in the way i think. And Every way of persuasion either kindly inviting or by threatening or really using force. There is us and Others. This binary dual has two facets, you are either for me or againist me.
