Fundamental Laws of the Universe

When Susan Brownmiller & Sodom are mentioned in the same article there can be only one subject.

Specifically this one has as its hook concern about supposedly overly liberal planning laws allowing the close placement of schools and sex shops.

This concern seems to be based on the implication that anyone who might go to a sex shop is dangerous & on seemingly absurd notions about "porn cartels."

Then there's further hysteria about how:

Such venues are part of the growing demoralisation of social life; another nail in the coffin of the nation's mental and moral hygiene.

Then, of course, we have the old "porn = prostitution = rape" line.

A true classic.
