Thank you for accepting this debate.

Definitions :
Pornography - The depiction of erotic behavior intended to Cause sexual excitement
Suppress - To keep from public knowledge, prevent the development or expression of.
Community - A sort of instituition made up of families that instruct children in values and tradition of a particular culture.

Intro:
The community is essential to the upbringing of children and a successful life. Individuals voluntarily give up some measure of their personal freedom to come together with other people for the purpose of pursuing their objectives. All just governments contain only the only the authority granted by individuals who contract together to produce that authority. Since I do not believe in government nor in laws what I do believe in is the community with the ability to enforce rules so that rights like freedom and equality are not violated and people do not infringe others rights. Individuals give up some of their rights for the purpose of establishing order and security. A community exists simply to satisfy the general will the responsibility of community is determined by what citizens as a whole desire. Generally the general will of the people includes the protection of life, liberty, and property but it also includes much more, when that's the case the communities obligation is to see that the general will is carried out.

C1 -
Freedom where it is inconsisten with the views of the community is a movement toward egoistic pleasure at the expense of morality and the general will (if it is to suppress pornography). The golden rule in the community is respect and uphold societies moral order as you would have society uphold your autonomy. If the community knows that you are a sexual deviant and disapproves of you that have every right to make you leave. If it's more basic like the community finds out that you have pornography and don't approve the community has every right to make you throw away the porn; however if the community doesn't know then mum is the word and none is the wiser.

Since im late by so many rounds i will only try to refute instead of building a case how does that sound? :P

C1 - ( my attacks for this). -
Yes and if the will of the majority is to kill all jews (Nazi's) then its definitely what should happen, ok sorry that might be the extreme but i dont think so. Yes the communities majority says all gays must be kicked of the town, thats how it works now right? Im sorry to say but this is against the constitution, the right to privacy; Some one has the right to do what ever he wants to do in the privacy of his own home. No matter if the public knows that he goes and jerks off to porn all day in his house no one has the right to say you can't do that anymore. Same with smokers, or homosexuals have relations in their house, or to simply play violent games like GTA. Just because the communities majority says we don't like this so your not allowed to do it or we will kick you out? That's flat out persecution! The founding fathers who said the general will is the persuence of life,liberty, and freedom. This is of acceptance of lets come together and accept the difference's of people. Not lets kick out anyone who doesn't believe what we believe?
Oh no this is for the children! No that's just ignorant, there is nothing wrong with porn its art just like any other a film made for watching, and expressing something. Porn just has sex in it? Oh no our kids learning about sex?! you must be insane?! Ok parents since your so afraid of your kids learning about sex then how about we ban sex period? This whole porn is immoral, horrible, despicable thing is getting a little old. We have kids having sex, and not know how to protect themselves because parents won't discuss sex with them as it is ! Enough is enough with this general will bull crap, the general will is only acceptable when it doesn't persecute others if not then we are no better than the nazi's.
