The worm turns (morals over ethics)

I will try to keep this brief, so that I keep your attention.  This is EXACTLY why I preach that ethics is superior to morals. It makes my blood boil.

The internet helps to  make RACK safe (risk aware consensual kink). Because we can share best practices and knowledge we are safer, and more responsible.  The internet pendulum is trying to swing the other way.  Not because of Donald J Trump, but because society attitudes always cycle. We are entering a phase where there is a new attack on porn and sexual perversion… (meaning you and I).  It’s happening around the globe.  I can’t wait 20 years for the cycle to swing around again.

 The “forces for moral enforcement” want to drive us back under the rock we came from.  Here is the plan:  dry up the ability to take payments for products and services and the porn industry dries up.. and us along with it. Everything we publish that is deemed “bad”, will die. The attack hit home on Fetlife where a thousands of accounts had to be deleted in order to stay open for what’s left of the community.   You have to ask, who will they come for next?

BDSM and some kinks will be collateral damage as credit card companies expand the  number of “obscene” sites they force to comply.  Bit Coin is not an option because it operates on credit cards for cash exchange.  Pay Pal is in bed with the credit card companies too.  You can’t start a kink friendly bank because if you can’t exchange money, you can’t operate.  This is a big hammer folks.

The “forces for good” have found a hammer and they are using it. This attack works. The “forces for good” have won this round and that will embolden them. Mark my words, after this success, they will further tighten their grip.  Princess Leah is dead.  The more they tighten their grip, the more lifestyles won’t slip through their fingers.

Do not go quietly into that night.  If you can’t put your voice into the public, at least support NCSF. You can shrug or you can get vocal with your politician, do it. those who do and join NCSF.  This is not the end.  Society always cycles.  This too shall pass.  In the meantime, we can work to hasten it’s passing.  Don’t get hysterical, but also don’t let your guard down.. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

Here is what happened to Fetlife ( you need an account to read this.):
Why Fetlife was forced to amputate some of the community to save the rest.

If I had John Baku’s ear, I’d fight money with money. I’d publish the names of the offending credit card companies and encourage people to switch from cards that didn’t play ball, to ones that did.  Must be some companies that want all that internet money…

Do not go gentle into that good night
Dylan Thomas, 19141953

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
