Is Lobbying Against Pornography a Good Thing(tm)?

I mean seriously, does lobbying against Pornography produce positive results? In my home city, porn consumption is really off the wall. Salt Lake City has more incidence of porn consumption than any other city. So what good would lobbying against Pornography do?

The Anti-porn lobby is all about Censorship. This is something the 1st Amendment actually does not sanction. The 1st Amendment states: "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." Censorship is abriding the freedom of the press. Censors often determine what is appropriate or not for a larger group of people. This is morally wrong.

So, if these anti-porn societies actually get their way in a society that is even more sexually repressed than that of the rest of the nation; what would happen? Nothing good, I think. Shame is an awful thing, body shame is just an awful thing. Body shame is what pornography exploits to gain its power. So, what will actually treat pornography?

Nudism. Nudism seems to be the best answer. Nudism is the practice of nakedness for body acceptance and chaste purposes, not for sex. It combats pornography by presenting the opposite message about the body. Pornography depends on mystery, secret, shame. Nudism presents the body as open, true, and accepted. Unfortunately, our bodies are outlawed. Not a problem. If enough (say thousands in the Wasatch Front) civilly disobeyed the Law in being just naked, then the Pornography problem will just go away. At least that is what I think.
