Stop defending porn

I recently saw the journalist Chris Hedges on C-Span. At one point, he said that those who wish to defend pornography had better make sure they understand what they are defending.

I am sure Adam B Sullivan feels quite sophisticated inviting porn stars to Iowa, but I would strongly urge him to read the chapter on pornography in Hedges' book Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle. Perhaps then he might understand that he is not defending freedom but degradation and brutality.
