The United Nations have only given me more of a reason to leave America and live in Japan. Trying to mess with our constitutional rights involving freedom of expression and speech is insane.
Trying to draw a line between art and what is considered “wrong” is giving to much power to one person and you can bet your ass it is going to be abused.
I swear America (and another courtiers) always be on some sneaky shit trying to invent all these loop-holes to fuck with people rights. I cannot stand it anymore.
They are apparently only doing this in an attempt to connect child pornography and other bad activities involving underage beings to pedophilia and more.
You can learn a bit more by checking out this video by anime YouTuber named Lost Pause – THE UNITED NATIONS WANTS TO BAN ANIME – Noble News. It is sad when people try an connect abstract things to real world problems.
Like Noble mentions, it is like how people tried to connect video game violence to becoming a criminal and those two things have never and will never be connected because it is just not true.
We live in a world where we create things all the time, if you start trying to dictate what can be created based on a single persons’ opinion, then you might as well call that person God.
This is why we have the 1st Amendment.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
It is a sad world coming when you start messing with people’s rights. Criminals will be criminals no matter what you do or what they have access to. Anime, books, toys, games, offline, online. These bad people will always come out no matter what.
You can take away guns saying their bad, but then somebody will just pick up a taser, a stick, a knife, or even a rock.
I will just be off to Japan. You can bet my life I doubt this will get passed, but if it does I truly doubt Japan will follow this through. Most everything they create involves people who are underage, 17 and under, whether it be sexual or not.
You cannot draw a line in creativity and imagination.
I respect your views and beliefs, but if you don’t like it just stop observing it then. There is so much you can do with your time. Why waste it looking at things you dislike just to upset yourself? It’s entertainment, its a hobby, its satisfaction and most of all.
