'Small Government' Pierre Poilievre wants you to show your ID to watch Internet Porn


Recommended Posts

We're heading for more Internet control if Pierre Poilievre obtains majority apparently. It's super incoherent with his whole ideology of small government and limited intervention in people's lives. His whole shtick of protecting the children is also unconvincing.

VPN sales are going to skyrocket in Canada.

Not giving minors access to porn?  And you feel we ARE protecting children by letting them access porn?

So - 10 year old walks into a 7/11 and wants to buy a copy of 'back door badonkadonk' and we're ok with that? There's no such thing as appropriate age restrictions on sexual content?I think you're going to have a tough sell arguing that 7 year olds should have a basic right to watch gay 3 way sex if they want to.

I don't believe that he could be considering this, sorry.  I think governments haven't gone there for a reason, which is that pornography is very widely used and restricting responsible access to it has unknown political implications.

 

So you've never heard of a pg 18 rating for  a movie.

Gov'ts have never done this because the internet is relatively new and it's kind of an emerging issue that's become more and more prevelant.

I have to provide id to buy smokes - should we be allowing kids to do just whatever they want now?

It's like PP believes parents have special rights with regards to kids but no special responsibilities.

Shouldn't he be coercing parents to install parental control software on devices and computers their kids use?

Notice how parents are increasingly being held accountable for leaving their guns or drugs out where their kids can get them. This seems pretty similar.

So how does he propose to do that? Make you scan and remit your Drivers License and SIN card to log on?
Add on how he just announced he's "against" transwomen in women's bathrooms, change rooms, team sports. WTF can he even do about that?

Doubling down for the support of the social cornservatives over the voters of the center with more yap and half baked ideas? Pitiful.

Does that mean that transMEN are ok in the guy's bathroom?

No - they have to go into the woman's restroom.  

This guy will be legally required to use the little girls room at the showing of the Frozen & Encanto Disney on Ice show at the Calgary Saddledome, when your niece goes in alone...

HEY LADY !!!

No... it's completely logical that because I don't want to scan my driver's license to a porn site to watch, I have NEVER HEARD OF A PG 18 film.

 

Ahhhh your old trick of bait and switch to tell a lie to prop up your position :)   How typical

You said gov'ts have never put age restrictions on such things.  I pointed to the fact we already restrict audiences.

And somehow you try to twist it to 'if i have to show id to watch my porn i've never heard of movies".

Have you ever been honest in your life? Asking for a friend.So i guess that means you HAVE heard of age restrictions on content before and yet you're not crying about that! Care to explain or is 'hypocrisy' and 'dishonesty' sufficient?

The opposite is true.  Because he knows they have responsibilities he's aware that they must also have rights.

You're the ones who feel the state should be raising children, parents should just pump 'em out and turn them over and go back to work to make money for the glorious socialist empire :)

The parental control options exist on many routers and devices, on top of browsers and apps.

You don't need the government to protect your children from adult content. You just need a brain and proactivity. I would hate to live in a society in which everything is tracked by our government.

Speaking for myself I think having a village help out is a better idea - it's in a better position to have a discreet talk with a parent on occasion.

You're generalizing. You see states doing that a lot too.

As long as it's a socialist village right?  And as long as the parents don't live there.  And as long as it's run by the gov't.

Parents raise their kids, parents build communities with other parents. That's how it works. Let the parents do their jobs and stay out of it.

The village may be a bunch of LGBTQ supporters.  What good is that?  Let parents raise their own kids and keep your nose out.

Do you think that home is the only place kids can access the internet these days?!? Are you kidding?

Somewhere between "Everything is tracked" and "Nothing is ever tracked" is a reasonable sane medium that makes sense. Protecting kids from porn sites is probably a good thing. And the gov't doesnt' 'track' you - they're saying the site must require you to identify that you're over 18 first.  The site doesn't provide data to the gov't any more than a gas station does when it id's you for smokes.

I get what you're saying - most conservatives don't want excessive gov't nannyism but in this day and age kids are on the net and having at least some protection against them accessing porn is not a bad idea.

So a village is an apple and a community is an orange? That's your position?

Boy, or whatever, is your nose ever going to be out of joint when you find out they're in your community as well.

They made it clear that this wouldn't be the case.

Also, Liberals voted against as this bill wasn't doing enough.

I don't see whats wrong with requiring an age verification. Nobody in the history of the internet has ever put accurate info in this, when accessing something that they shouldn't. 

I see this as more hit piece than substance.

I made no such claim - but in a somewhat related context i think you're a bit of a fruitcake sometimes.  So... 

You didn't have to - the ideological context you relate things to is as obvious as a jar of mixed nuts. So...

so what you REALLY mean is..... 

The only way you seem to be able  to 'win' arguments is when you make up what the other person said :)  

"there's no need for you to say what you mean,  I'll decide what you mean for you and argue that!"
