Along with all the truly remarkable--even lifesaving--tasks which computers perform, the development of computers and the advent of on-line communication has introduced serious challenges into every area of the law. Many questions have yet to be answered. For example, in each nation across the globe, who is legally liable for material placed on a bulletin board system, an on-line service or on the Internet" The individual who introduces the material into the system, the systems operator, the producer of the material, and/or the person who downloads it" There are further questions. In the case of pornography transmitted by computer, the origination of the image may be in a jurisdiction in one part of the world where the image is legal but it may travel to another where the image is patently illegal. Should the global network be dominated by the strictest standard or the most tolerant" Furthermore, should not consenting adults be able to engage in e-mail interactive chat sessions which describe "objectionable" materials since these same communications might not be criminalised it they were face to face, by regular post, or by telephone" The possibility of creating computer generated pornography has produced a myriad of additional legal issues that are difficult to resolve. Civil libertarians argue that if computer generated pornography involves no real child victim, laws based on protecting children would no longer apply and regulation would be an unwarranted restriction of free speech. They argue that because there is no absolute scientific data that demonstrates a causal connection between the use of child pornography and the commission of crimes against children, there is no reason to restrict its transmission on the Internet. They might also point out the difficulty of determining the "age" of a "child" depicted in a computer generated image. Child advocates voice the position that the harm of child pornography extends far beyond the individual victim. They assert that children as a whole are the victims of computer generated pornography which displays child victims as sexual objects. Many law enforcement officers argue that the harm reaches beyond the individual child when pornography is used to seduce other children. They add that neglecting to prohibit computer generated child pornography could well re-establish the commercial trade--filling bookstores with computer generated images, de-sensitising society and fuelling demand for such material. Additionally, if it becomes impossible to distinguish computer generated pornography from that which depicts an actual child, prosecution of " genuine" child pornography would become virtually impossible and child pornographers would be furnished with another avenue of defense.

I forgive myself for having accepted and allowed myself to have become so desensitized by abusive images in this world that I will allow abuse to escalate to the extent that it has – and at no point stand up as the voice to stop abuse, but instead turn the point around within my mind through backchat, where I will rationalize and excuse-away the abuse, until I can comfortably set the problem aside inside my mind.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to justify that child pornography only exists because there are people in the world who are ‘mentally deranged and sick’ - not realizing that any and all sexual addiction and the participation therein exists due to me being maladjusted in my sexual responses– and therefore if I am not self responsible within sexuality and use my mind as fantasies and secret desires to influence my sexual behavior – then I am responsible for myself as abuser.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to believe that the impact that child abuse and child pornography will have on the world, will only be subject to children who are of lower socioeconomic value than my own and therefore it does not bother me.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to believe that these children who are abused are already accustomed to abusive lifestyles and therefore within my mind I separate myself from these children and see them as less than myself and less than my children.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to think and believe that due to these children mostly coming from broken homes or poor homes, that these are merely ‘victims of our society’ and therefore not deserving of equal rights to be protected by the system.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing society to push these children aside through judgment and perception that it is their fault for what happened to them due to the socio economic situation they find themselves in or for their parents apparently not protecting them sufficiently – which only exists as justification and reason for society to continue participating in the Mind – as the foundation from which all abuse is designed on an individual and global level.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to be spiteful towards these children by secretly believing – well some children are special and are therefore taken care of and others are not. I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself through family to allow such a mind set of ‘my children are special’, through which I will justify separating my family from the rest of the world, which consequently has had the effect of each family looking on as other families/individuals are abused in the name of profit and human self interest.
I commit myself to reveal the structure of family as the point of separating ourselves and our family members from the rest of the world and using family as the justification why my bubble is special and I only have to protect my family-bubble – and that this serves as the reason why all families accept and allow abuse t happen to other families.
I commit myself to show how humanity has desensitized ourselves to the abusive that happens and how we refuse to accept self-responsibility as the users and abusers on this planet. I commit myself to show that Capitalism is not even the real problem – as Capitalism merely exist as the system that we as the Consumers and Capitalists give permission to on a day to day basis – therefore if children are being exploited for money it is firstly because we are not self responsible within sexual expression – and secondly that we will sit by and watch as Capitalism continues to exists to support us, while making profit from abuse to support us.
