Porn Smack: Back to the Future

The U.S. Senate is currently holding hearings on porn addiction. We’re hearing claims that pornography has heroin-quality effects upon the brain’s chemical make-up, not to mention the corruptor-of-society charge that the Meese Commission concocted some 20 years ago.

I also read last week that Jerry Falwell is resurrecting the Moral Majority.

It’s official now, I suppose: welcome back to the 1980s, where war-mongering, abuses of executive power, crass materialism, anti-intellectualism, voodoo economics, unemployment and homophobia helped create an effective culture of fear that, clearly, we just never got enough of. (not to mention, of course, all of those dandy Robert Zemeckis films! yay!)

Man, I was SO hoping to see the triumphant return of parachute pants before this crap again…
