The Porn Problem

The online porn industry is said to be worth $12 billion.

Someone recently joked that if all the Internet porn sites were closed down there would be one website left - and that would be the "bring back porn" website.

Those that oppose regulation say that the Internet is a powerful medium that would be stifled if regulated.

Content regulation of the Internet has however come to the fore of public debate and is an issue that both individual governments and Internet users are concerned about with a recent survey indicating that censorship is the number one concern of Internet users.

Recently is was announced that a new web address '.xxx' would be created so that porn websites could be easily identified allowing parents, business and countries to block porn website where appropriate.

Is online porn a reason to regulate the Internet or is the unregulated principles of the Internet what makes the Internet the peoples medium?

Vegetarian Conundrum?

Details have been published in a biotechnology journal that describes a new technique that has been hailed as the answer to the world's food shortage. Lumps of meat would be cultured in laboratory vats rather than carved from livestock reared on a farm.

For many vegetarians who believe that meat is murder the revolutionary processed would see fresh meat grown from animal cells without a single animal being killed.

According to the researchers, meat grown in laboratories would be more environmentally friendly and could be tailored to be healthier than farm-reared meat by controlling its nutrient content and screening it for food-borne diseases.

If you are a vegetarian would you consider eating meat if it could be proved it was produced without harming the donor animal; and if you are a meat eater would the ultimate in processed food appeal to you?

Should Parents Be Able To Choose The Sex Of Their Baby?

It is now possible to allow parents who use fertility treatment to choose the sex of their children.

Should sex selection play a role in terms of family balancing?

With public support some countries allow sex selection only to avoid gender-linked medical conditions such as haemophilia.

The question though being asked now is if there are moral issues in allowing parents to choose the sex of their children to allow a family balance, for example a family with four sons wishing to have a daughter.

If it is thought okay to choose the sex of the fourth child, why not the first?

Does Alternative Medicine Work?

A recent medical editorial, entitled "The end of homeopathy", argued that doctors should recognise the absence of real curative powers in homeopathic medicine.

Around 42% of doctors in England will consider referring patients to a homeopath and in Scotland homeopathy has proved very popular, 86% of doctors are said to be in favour of it.

With many people today willing to try, and more doctors willing to prescribe, alternative medicine has gained ground on mainstream treatments.

Have you, or would you be willing to try alternative treatments?

Divided or United Nations?

2005 saw the United Nations Organisation 60th anniversary. Formed after four years of world war and genocide the United States was determined to lead the world in creating an institution that would act to "save succeeding generations from the scourge of war," and to "reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights.

The U.N. was created to advocate and deliver peace, security and development.

We ask was the creation of the United Nations a good thing, has the United Nations been a benefit to world and does the United Nations have the will and the means to achieve its aims and objectives?

In This World Nothing Is Certain But Death and Taxes

Most, if not all, of the developed nations have tax systems and credits that have become so convoluted that tax regulations run to thousands of pages and the administration costs soar as each individual case is calculated.

Most experienced economist would previously have argued that to introduce a single flat rate of income tax would result in financial disaster.

Estonia had an economy that was in meltdown, with inflation running at 1,000 per cent a year and one in three workers unemployed. However through adopting a flat rate tax its economy has flourished into one that is now listed in the top ten of competitive economies and is enjoying considerable foreign investment.

The idea that the rich should pay tax at a higher tax than everyone else is almost 100 years old. It is often argued with modern taxation systems that the rich are able to find loop holes that allow them to pay little, if any tax at all.

Estonia tax everyone at the same rate 22 per cent.

Would you support a more transparent form of taxation?

Do you think any of the G8 countries will be brave enough to make such a radical change?

Physician Assisted Suicide

Doctors in many countries are able to accompany their patients every step of the way, up until the last where laws stops them helping their patients take the final step, even if that is the patients fervent wish.

A number of medical organisation have recently withdraw their opposition to any legalisation that would allow assisted dying but they say it is a matter for society and their neutrality in the debate must not be seen as support for assisted dying.

In the Netherlands, one in 40 deaths is from voluntary euthanasia or assisted suicide, both legal practices.

In Oregon, where voluntary euthanasia is prohibited, assisted suicide is responsible for one in 700 deaths.

Where do you stand on this difficult issue?
