Government Gone Wrong

This June you will hear of a modern day Scopes Monkey Trial in my own
hometown of Staunton, Virginia.

At issue is the local prosecuter charging both the owner and an employee
of an adult video store with indecency.

Regardless of your opinion on the subject of porn, you should be worried
about the government, any government, arresting people based upon the
content of the media they possess.

If they are successful in defining crimes based upon content rather than
actions, then they become free to define any content as objectionable.
When this happens, the book burnings and political executions are quick
to follow.
