A Cult With A Secret Leader Who Encourages Independence

“A company of believers is like a prison full of criminals; their intimacy and solidarity is based on what they can least justify about themselves.”

“The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.” — JFK, THE PRESIDENT AND THE PRESS: ADDRESS BEFORE THE AMERICAN NEWSPAPER PUBLISHERS ASSOCIATION, APRIL 27, 1961

Last June the U.S. House approved a ban on the importation and trafficking of anatomically correct child sex dolls and robots that “normalize sex between adults and minors.” The proposal was approved in the House by a voice vote and now moves to the Senate.
See https://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/poli…

“These dolls can be programmed to simulate rape. The very thought makes me nauseous,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican. Child sex dolls are one troubling niche of a nascent robotic and AI sex industry that has generated debate about the ethics of the use of lifelike machines for sexual activity. It is a subject that turns from squeamish to outright revulsion for many when it touches on child sex dolls and robots.

This Act was cited as the “Curbing Realistic Exploitative Electronic Pedophilic Robots Act of 2017” or as the “CREEPER Act of 2017.” See also the Child Pornography Prevention Act of 1996, à la Ashcroft, that was discussed herein. https://www.nytimes.com/2002/04/17/us…
