o Warning! Some governments and jurisdictions may "disappear" Web site owners and assume their web identities so as to "decoy" visitors, (in order to violate those visitors), for the heresy of offending "provincial sensibilities", (willful expressions of sex, porn and nudity), inflicting sometimes, even draconian penalties. For example, in the USA, "underage" consensual relations are now deemed a "violent crime" equating to terrorism, and subject to the Department of Homeland Security when travel is involved, (Executive Order 13257 of February 13, 2002).

     The "War on Sex" appears to be being waged by an yet-unknown-to-us central coordinator. [BILL GATES?] "Deviants" are labeled "incurable" and there looms a malevolent movement underfoot working to supplant the "War on Drugs" and "War on Terrorism" with an even larger "War on Sex", where a vastly higher number of persons are available to governments as targets. The rubrics of "AIDS" and "Trafficking" have already been plotted to elevate sex and pornography to the highest "national security" purview. The US Department of Homeland Security's recent largely-unsubstantiated elevation to Code Orange appears to have been served up in order to deliberately misdirect attention during the time it took the US Congress to rush through the egregious "Protect Act ", along with its now infamous "Feeney Amendment". | 2

"Did you really think we want those laws observed?"
said Dr. Ferris. "We WANT them to be broken.
You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of
boy scouts you're up against... We're after power
and we mean it... There's no way to rule innocent men.
The only power any government has
is the power to crack down on criminals.
Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them.
One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes
impossible for men to live without breaking laws.
Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens?
What's there in that for anyone?
But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be
observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted
— and you create a nation of law-breakers —
and then you cash in on guilt.
Now that's the system Mr. Reardon, that's the game,
and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with."

— AYN RAND, Atlas Shrugged

"TOTAL CRIMINALIZATION was the greatest idea of its time
and was vastly popular except with those people who
didn't want to be crooks or outlaws.
So, of course, they had to be TRICKED INTO IT...

was eventually made ILLEGAL."

"Every purchase you make with a credit card,
every magazine subscription you buy

all these transactions and communications will
go into what the Defense Department describes as
"a virtual, centralized grand database."

"And, you know, if this guy had had porn ... in his house,
they would have been, like, oh, we've got to crack down on that;
that's what caused this.

"YOU may well have missed
Victim Support Week in February.
After all, you don't need a special week to know that
victims are the flavour of the month, the year.
But, in case you were in any doubt,
Jack Straw is appointing a new ombudsman for victims
`to finally bring victims in from the cold;
to put their interests at the heart of the system'.
Oh, come on, Jack, the victim is already centre-stage
and has indeed been put on a pedestal...[for]...
the focus of a high-profile media campaign
to change the law on 'child abuse'.
And gimmicks such as special victim days
just add to what you might call a 'victim culture',
which has crept into the fabric of everyday life and
too frequently distorts public policy and behaviour generally...
Nowhere is this being taught more actively than in our schools,
where we can see that `victim culture' is more than government rhetoric
and is becoming an institutionalised model for future generations...
Thus they learn to be suspicious of people around them
and feel constantly vulnerable.
Children are being encouraged to identify as victims."

— CLAIRE FOX, director of the Institute of Ideas, accusing politicians of creating a 'victim culture' for personal gain.

"[S]ubstantial evidence exists that
anti-trafficking initiatives are more concerned with

"[T]he recent additions to [constitutionally dubious

"The lie can be maintained only for such time as
the State can shield the people from the political,
economic, and /or military consequences of the lie.
It thus becomes vitally important for the State
to use all its powers to repress dissent,
for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie -
and thus by extension, the truth becomes
the greatest enemy of the State."

"One thing I find ridiculous is
the notion of the good old days
and the decline of American morals.
Th[at] period of American history
[wa]s called The Gilded Age for a reason.
It's all about greed. And it's not solid gold;
everything [wa]s covered in gold leaf —
it's all about appearances
and power and money and
management versus labor.
In that sense, our forebears were
just as corrupt as our contemporaries.
I actually find that reassuring in a way."

"I read [Sigmund Freud's] 'Introductory Lectures',
God, what a genius. He makes it so understandable.
And he is so right. Didn't he say himself that
Shakespeare and Dostoievski had a better

Damn it, they do ...
[So,] I'm lying on my bed
wearing only a brassiere."

"I don't agree with that,
some of the best earth-shattering sex I've ever had
was with someone I barely even liked,
it was just a physical chemistry thing,
could barely stand him otherwise."

"VERY TRUE!
Had horrible awful sex
with someone I loved,
and awesome [sex] with some hottie
who was incredibly stuck on himself.
Just wanted to say
'shut up and do me!'"

"[While] left hemisphere language cortices
interpret literal meaning [of communication];
frontal lobes and right hemisphere process
intentional, social and emotional context,
identifying contradictions between
literal meaning and social/emotional context;
the right ventromedial prefrontal cortex
integrates the literal meaning with
the social/emotional knowledge of
the situation and previous situations,
helping to determine true meaning."

— Brain Researcher SIMONE SHAMAY-TSOORY and colleagues at the University of Haifa

"It’s all very confusing, because I happen to know
that my lizard brain occasionally throws its voice
to make it sound like it’s the pre-frontal talking.
I’ll browse the erotica section of a bookstore,
thinking that I’m obeying a pre-frontal call
for some elevated literature that captures
the essence and beauty of human sensuality,
when actually it’s my lizard brain
hoping for pictures."
