Some want the government to take care of their feelings, retirement, even income.
Here in Missouri we have a State Rep by name of Jim Neely (R-Cameron). He wants to block porn from everyone's computers and internet connected devices. For the children of course. It's always "For the children". http://www.kmov.com/story/37719188/missouri-lawmakers-look-to-block-access-to-online-porn-statewide
"The bill says a distributor who makes or sells a product that is accessible to the internet, like a phone or a computer would be required to install a blocking software that would prevent the device from accessing obscene material.
But we think that mere categorization of these films as "obscene" is insufficient justification for such a drastic invasion of personal liberties guaranteed by the First and Fourteenth Amendments. Whatever may be the justifications for other statutes regulating obscenity, we do not think they reach into the privacy of one's own home. If the First Amendment means anything, it means that a State has no business telling a man, sitting alone in his own house, what books he may read or what films he may watch. Our whole constitutional heritage rebels at the thought of giving government the power to control men's minds." STANLEY v. GEORGIA
