The Australian great porn war

Government plans to introduce mandatory internet filtering have enraged – and mobilised – the blogosphere, and no one knows where it will end, reports Nigel Bowen.Clive Hamilton is keen to establish he is not a wowser. He did, after all, strip naked at Jim Cairns’s Down to Earth hippie festival in 1974 and fought the good ’60s fight against “neurotic Victorian sexual mores” in his younger years. He even volunteers that he has no problem with non-violent erotica. “If it treats all parties in a non-objectified way, then tell me where I can get it.”But Hamilton, a prominent left-leaning intellectual, wants the Rudd Government to crack down on what he sees as the virtual Wild West – “a cowboy culture that thinks itself beyond the reach of normal social control”.
