    I was referring to censoring information -- books, newspapers, websites and the like.

    Child pornography has no information value, and suppressing it is (imo) completely justified, as the people (to use the term loosely) who propagate it themselves resort to lies and distortion to justify it. Child pornogprahy is an abomination, and we should never allow ourselves to be tricked by the semi-human mutants who claim that their desire to indulge in it is somehow equivalent to real human beings's right to free and unbiased information.

    As for gay parades, I dislike them, but am at pains to see how realistically a fair and rational society could possibly ban them. I am no homophobe by any means, but I have to say that as soon as a man prances around in some "pride" parade to some Eurotrash Datsun-techno, wearing a skintight latex comstume and waving an inflatable plastic penis around, he has lost my respect, but so what? Allowing people to behave like idiots if they want to is the price of a free society.

    What is missing in the poll is the case of private institutions that fill the functions of public ones. Shopping malls have expelled gatherers of signatures for petitions that would have been permitted in public squares. Much of the internet is technically private but practically public.

    I agree with this.

    I'm absolutely against any form by the government, except local school districts. Private censorship I generally oppose as much as reasonably possible, but I think they should have that right to censor if they want, since if people don't like it they can always go to or create a competing institution.

    Child pornography is a special case, the problem with it is that children are actually sexually abused to create it. So people that purchase it or are part of the production and distribution network are participants in a crime in the same way that a mafia don who doesn't actually pull the trigger is a participant in a murder.

    What about promotion of interracial sexual relationships--sometimes by the government? This is just as offensive to me. But the political philosophy in power is the one which determines what should be censored. So what is offensive to them is censored. The only fair thing to do is censor nothing.

    Let child pornography and homosexuality be dealt with rather than censored :

    Yep, I'm pro-censorship, we just have the wrong people running our countries and censoring the wrong things. Interracialism, homosexuality, anti-white propaganda should definitely be censored.

    I think censorship should be reduced as much as possible. Some things are too sensitive and can dramatically reduce a building nation/country. However, once stability is created censorship should be reduced over time.

    But still, pro-Government censorship is better than pro-Capitalist/Communist/Israel/etc.. FAR better.

    Currently European governments are trying to censor opinions critical of the immigration policies of those governments. This is pro-government censorship, so apparently you're in favour of censoring all opinions critical of immigration.
    Neither assimilation nor integration will solve the problems. The only thing that would work from my point of view would be separation. And this separation should be done on a global level, not on a communal level. The western countries here, the islamic countries there. And a very tall border between the two worlds please.
