David Cameron Announces to Block Online Pornography By Default in UK

While the Internet is a haven for those who seek benign information or harmless entertainment, it also by virtue of its freedom includes in its purview several mad, bad and sad practices. One of these is online child pornography, a regrettable fact that is a source of shame for the founders as well as for those who fall victims to its deleterious effects.

David Cameron decided that all homes in Britain will be asked whether they want to phase out pornographic sites. The act will go into enforcement by the end of 2014. According to the Guardian , "As a first step, customers who set up new broadband accounts or switch providers would have to actively disable the filters by the end of this year." In particular, the Prime Minister expressed concern over pictures of children being sexually abused on the Internet. Such perverted practices could only corrupt minds by their nefarious display of wickedness and moral turpitude.

Among the online viewers are children whose minds can be negatively influenced by any inappropriate images. The Prime Minister has called it a moral duty of search engine giants like Google and Bing to weed out such extreme details that will likely lead to disturbed minds. All scenes of rape and anything related that is illegal will be blocked. This is part of a government effort to stem the rising tide of sexually perverted sites on the Internet that enter the no man’s land of the criminal and nihilistic. 

PM states, "The government today has made a significant step forward in preventing rapists using rape pornography to legitimise and strategise their crimes and, more broadly, in challenging the eroticisation of violence against women and girls."
