Harper's mentor, on child porn

| Disqus Comments
An aside from Indian-fighter Tom Flanagan:

But that’s actually another interesting debate or seminar: what’s wrong with child pornography — in the sense that it’s just pictures? But I’m not here to debate that today.

And here, revealed in all its splendour, is the concept that lies at the rotting heart of social relations under capitalism--commodity fetishism. The rupture between consumption and production has become so wide that a picture is no longer a picture of someone, but just a fantasy aid. An object for sale.

Let's have that debate, Tom. I guarantee it'll be the last we hear of you.
