Scotland – will its government start violating its people like in Sweden and Norway?

In Uncategorized on October 25, 2012 at 7:05 pm

I have heard that in Scotland, a woman named Rhoda Grant has manged to propose a new sex purchase law. Yes, we are living the so-called modern times, and narrow-mindedness rears its ugly head.

Thank you, democracy, making it possible for unsophisticated wickedness to continue to use you to get power.

Irony aside: If Scotland introduces such a law in modern time, I am convinced that it will only be a question of time before it will be removed again.

But why establish this temporary pain for a whole nation?

I have recently read that in Norway, after 4 years with this very controversial law, the sex purchase law will be removed if a (very much expected) change of government takes place in 2013. I assume a majority of this country’s people has began to feel how violating it is to have its privacy controlled by the state – and how bad this is for the sex worker´s profession and life. It is also difficult to understand how such a law can help society progress and detect any possible victims, when openness becomes subdued, sex workers are stigmatized and sex sale is forced into darkness.

I came across a detailed philosophic analysis / stage play about the situation in Norway, and some “philosophic assumptions” about the real reasons for passing such a law. Perhaps it could be enlightening to consider how such a law works in one country before one just lets the same thing happen to ones own homeland.
