    Should all sex, violence and cursing be stricken from all forms of communication? Why or why not?

    Personally, I believe in ultra-libertarianism, and as such believe that the airwaves should be totally "unprotected" both liberals and conservatives. If a broadcaster wanted to air the Violent Sex hour, I would be fine, if I want I can change the channel.

    The airwaves are public domain, and as such the same kind of rules as those governing public decency apply. No one has the right to say and do anything he wants in a public forum. Men can and should be arrested for disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, indecent exposure, and the list goes on . . .

    Unbridled lewdness is destructive to the common welfare.

    Wow...so no limits, huh?

    Child porn and the like, huh?

    I love the "you can't legislate morality" crowd. They're promoting anarchy, and they don't even know it.

    Laws are based in morality.

    You seem to have a problem with laws, rules, and standards. Wonder why that is?
