In a move of stunning common sense and moral sophistication, the UK government plans to block all internet porn in order to protect children: [...]

Instead of using parental controls to stop access to pornography – so-called “opting out” – the tap will be turned off at source. Adults will then have to “opt in.” [...]

[This idea] would strike many of my fellow citizens (even so-called “conservatives”) as completely un-American. [...] We’ll manage to find a way to twist moral logic and constitutional reasoning so that we can justify prohibiting any prohibition on pornography. This is, after all, America: A country where we love our children almost as much as love our smut.
