Pornography and Its Discontents: Immoral, Inviolate or Inconclusive?
Baron, Larry
Society, v24 n5 p6-12 Jul-Aug 1987
To right-wing groups and some feminists pornography symbolizes immorality. The Attorney General's Commission on Pornography supported this thinking. It concluded that pornography increases aggression and it instituted a crackdown on pornography. Since no empirical evidence supports its conclusions, the commission was more concerned with censorship than with ending violence. (VM)
