Porn access requires passports. Ireland plans for online ID

Coimisiun na Mean, the new state run media regulator, recently published a draft of their proposed online safety code. In the draft they outline the need to restrict access to porn in order to protect children from accessing the harmful content.


The release of their document sparked public debate on the issue. Thankfully, everyone agrees that more should be done to stop children from viewing immoral damaging content. Disagreements arose around the manner in which they wish to restrict it. Comments on twitter showed that most people are against the idea of needing to upload passports to access porn because they fear it will further increase the totalitarian nature of the Irish state. Others appeared to show no shame in stating that their opposition had more to do with their desire to watch the immoral content.


A few people noticed a bit of hypocrisy in the measure too, Michael from Dublin rightfully asked "if the government is so concerned about children accessing porn, then why are they foisting it upon school children through their new RSE curriculum? Yes, restrict porn, but also scrap the RSE and sack whoever had anything to do with it"


In their document, Coimisiún na Meán states - "sets out its views on some available age verification techniques, such as:

• document-based age verification, accompanied by a live selfie to verify the identity of the user;

• a live selfie together with biometric age estimation; and

• self-declaration together with age estimation based on service usage patterns and the nature of content created by the user."


If their plans proceed, people will have to upload their passport along with a selfie for verification. Many see the commission's plans as an attempt to use the porn restriction as a stepping stone before rolling out the Passport requirement to other platforms such as social media. Restrictions on social media would only further the government's plans to stamp out free speech and in relation to porn sites, passport requirements do not go far enough which calls their whole idea into question.


A point that everyone seems to have missed in all of this is that porn should be banned altogether, and the question we should be asking the government and the media commission is, why do they not want to ban it? They could literally block it online overnight but they choose not to. Is it because the commission themselves along with members of government are guilty of having a porn addiction? I would argue there is a deeper, more sinister reason.


Thanks to recent studies people are becoming aware that porn has many damaging effects on both those producing it and on those viewing it, which will hopefully lead to the tide turning against its production and consumption. Scientific studies have shown the physical damage and other analysis have shown the mental damage it causes. A little known fact is that a number of governments have even used porn as a weapon against their enemies.


The intelligence agencies of America and Israel have long known that porn makes people weak. In March 2002, Israeli military forces took over Palestinian TV stations when they occupied Ramallah in the West Bank. Shortly after occupying the Al-Watan TV station, the Israeli forces began broadcasting pornography over its transmitter. When America invaded Iraq, a country where porn was illegal, one of the first things they did upon entering town squares was to plaster porn all over the town square notice boards. After that, they began airing porn in the Iraqi cinemas and flooded the country with porn to be distributed in their local shops. Some Iraqis could discern the motives for the promotion of vice, as one Iraqi stated in a Newsweek.com report in 2003 - "Iraqis, young and old, are blaming America. "Some people say the spread of such things is designed to weaken our society," says Col. Daoud Selman, a police chief in one of Baghdad's roughest districts. "Every day we hear it from people on the street. Not just the religious people, but ordinary ones, too."


Col. Daoud Selman was correct, porn weakens society because it makes those who watch it a slave to their fallen passions. When they are a slave to their passions, their intellect becomes clouded and they are unable to mount any serious resistance to any invading army or against any oppressive system. In short they become weak men. That alone should be enough motive to stop watching porn.


If Israeli and American intelligence agencies use porn to weaken their enemy, then why do they use it on their own citizens? Why do most countries allow it to be accessed in their own countries? In 2020 when governments all over the world placed their citizens under lockdown, multiple Irish media sources published the news that pornhub, the world's largest provider, would be offering free premium subscriptions to the world for the duration of lockdown. Why? Why did the state run media promote it? What government ministers approved it?


I would argue that they done so in order to further enslave their citizens, so that as a result of their clouded minds they could not mount any resistance to their relentless psychological warfare in relation to covid.


For that among many other reasons, we should demand the abolition of porn.
