Mamie Davis's comment, September 12, 11:22 PM
I think the backlash against the banning of the porn websites is entirely correct even if the judge who imposed the ban was trying to do it to remove "kiddie" porn (which it was discovered not to be). I think its worrisome that a government organization in Lebanon, the Ministry of Justice issued the order to block the six cites but there are no other government agencies to act as a check and balance to prevent religiously bias, ultra conservative or unjust laws from being implemented. The Ministry of Telecommunication who implemented the ban said they had no choice but that they support freedom. But if even they can't review the acts of the Ministry of Justice, that absolute power will most definitely lead to corruption.

Mamie Davis's comment, September 12, 11:57 PM
This is a horrible part of Alaskan life. And I think its very unfortunate that these kids are born into these communities. They are born into disease ridden centers where EVERYONE knows they are more than likely going to be abused, but no one can take them away or protect them. I think the power of "tradition" and the cultural values of silence and avoidance of familial shaming is what is crippling these villages. Those values worked in more primitive times when there was no resources, there was no where to go but stay and take it. I'm talking about a hundred years ago, when Alaska was more or less without any kind of organizational structure we know today. But how can you tell someone, politically correct, that their cultural values are askew, that they are only assisting in the continuation of silence and victimization and they need to reevaluate them. Western society had to do the same, granted we had a longer period of time to do so, but we no longer practice primogeniture or stone people for witchcraft. I believe the source of the cultural power is legitimate but it is being carried out in all the wrong ways. Instead of building a healthy community in which to survive, it creates a perverse trap in which to suffer... silently.
