I would like to pose a question to the President. It is commonly accepted, under Rule 34 of "teh internetz", that "If It Exists, There Is Porn of It. No Exceptions."

I would like to ask the President and his cabinet is this applicable to Debate.Org.

Rule 34 is a metaphysical claim, not a political one, so I'm not sure why you're interested in my opinion.

That said DDO does exist and there is porn of it. But I'm not telling you where or what kind of porn it is. You'll have to purchase that information from a private company, I am against the socialization of porn.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

But private porn companies don't care about the consumer. They only care about making money, and, in doing so, they ultimately hurt the consumer. Therefore, I think we should socialize DDO porn. Who's with me?

But in order for them to make money, consumers must willingly buy their porn - therefore negating any "harm" perceived by DDO porn to be a willing risk on the part of the consumer to take.

No to legislating porn!

The problem here is, private pr0n companies maliciously misinform the consumer, just like how the tobacco companies maliciously withheld information that smoking causes cancer. I mean, think about the profit motive. Pr0n companies make the most money when they make their consume become addicts, which is just not healthy.

Yes to legislating DDO pr0n!

As long as the practices of the pr0n companies is legal and justified, which they are, then there is no reason for intervention. This is just an attempt to legislate morality, justified by the actions of anti-smoking campaigns which have a real purpose and real justification - it hurts not only those that choose to smoke, but those that don't! pr0n hurts no one. Besides, no one is forcing consumers to start looking at pr0n, so why should we force them to stop?

A public option would help. Not only would it drive down price and introduce competition to the market, it would help students who can't afford DDO pr0n get DDO pr0n.

Yes to a DDO Public pr0n option.

Privatize pr0n hurts no one? That statement alone makes me gag!

With privatized DDO pr0n, just look at the dangerous and illegal sexual perversions that have spread epidemically on this DDO Nation. s0m31john lust for kids not passed puberty. Eggleston brags about his myriad sexual exploits, and has grown to grossly objectify women. Ragnar, before the age of consent, had relations with women much, much, much, much, much, much, much older than him.

This dangerous trend needs to stop. It is unhealthy and amoral for this DDO Nation.

Private companies already supply enough affordable pr0n for DDO consumption that a "public option pr0n" would just be a waste of public funds. There is no need for nationalization when affordability is already quite accounted for among the pr0n industry.

No to legislation pr0n and no to the pr0n public option!

The actions of a few radical members of DDO does not qualify for legislation pr0n. They choose their actions based on any number of factor, and may have arrived at it with or without the availability of private pr0n. There is no proof that pr0n made them that way - pr0n is neutral in all of this. If you want those individuals to answer for their actions, I suggest you talk to them, instead of the innocent pr0n companies, who only supply a product.

No to legislating DDO pr0n!

Affordable? I suspect prices to rise ever higher as DDO pr0n companies continue to slash at each other's throats and arrive ever closer to a single monopoly. Just last week did Vi, Lwerd, and associates go out of business and take their products off the market! Pr0n will always be available for the top one percent, but for the bottom seventy-five, something must be done.

Again, all privatized pr0n companies want to do is make money, regardless of the legal and moral factors involved. The profit motive of the Ragnar administration on the other hand? To provide the best pr0n to the public, so that his administration may be reelected. Oh how I love Democracy.

Pr0n is an industry like any other, and like an other industry, if there is a gap in the market, then that gap will be filled (ironic sentence, given the subject we're talking about). If Vi, Lwerd and Assoc. take their business off the market then that is their prerogative - new companies will take their place and turn out new pr0n, maybe better pr0n. That is the nature of the market, and we should not tamper with it when it is clear there is no need to. Pr0n will always be available for all, if they so choose.

Again, all privatized pr0n companies want to do is make money, regardless of the legal and moral factors involved. The profit motive of the Ragnar administration on the other hand? To provide the best pr0n to the public, so that his administration may be reelected. Oh how I love Democracy.

Your attempts to demonize the pr0n industry will not work here. Of course they want to make money, but they can only do that if they turn out pr0n for consumers to buy - everyone benefits!

And there is no motive for the Ragnar administration to become involved in the pr0n industry that you can prove. Pr0n is free from political interference - or at least it will be unless you get your way!

No to legislating pr0n!

Porn is not only affordable but free, Poejoe. I can't match that price. Heck, I'm still a virgin, and you want me in charge of porn production?

Furthermore, the actions of Lwerd and Vi show just how fickle a temptress privatized pr0n can be. What of, as PoeJoe laments, the average consumer who is now lost at sea? Privatized pr0nzors will lead to, as it has, a bubble-and-bust pr0n industry. Just as quickly as the material was becoming more salacious, it disappeared!

Public option pr0n would provide the consumer with a steady cost-alternative. Privatized pronz would give our fetish market what it needs, while public option would help our Joe the Plumber unclog his pipes.

Yes to public option pr0n!

If the pr0n bubble bursts, then it is because consumers no longer want it. What then do we do with our public option pr0n? It is simply a black hole for money if we decide to set up public pr0n when it simply isn't needed.

If there is enough interest, pr0n will be there. Pr0n is a healthy industry with a long record of excellent management and satisfaction among consumers. There is no need for the pr0n public option!

Are you kidding? The bubble just burst when the consumer's demand was peaking! It came and left just a little too soon.

You cannot tamper with the market! Means might be available to peak the market again, but when the demand drops, and we're still funding it, we could really hurt ourselves!

It is best to leave it alone, and let it naturally flow.

But the natural flow often results in refractory periods and reload times which are damaging to all parties involved. With a little government aid, we could keep going for god knows how long.

I move to give the current administration the official moniker "Rahlalaux".
