Some Good News from England

This is something which I hope to see emulated in the US:
Most households in the UK will have pornography blocked by their internet provider unless they choose to receive it, David Cameron has announced. 
In addition, the prime minister said possessing online pornography depicting rape would become illegal in England and Wales - in line with Scotland....

However, I'm skeptical that either party in the US will really and seriously take up this cause, which is very unfortunate. This is a relatively simple fix, and moreover it's an optional fix, meaning that households can in principle opt out. Would that this option be taken away, but something tells me that a populace which is widely addicted to porn wouldn't go for that. Still, there are plenty of folks who are addicted, who recognize that it's a problem, and who would be happy to implement this relatively easy solution as an aide to avoiding and then overcoming this addiction.
