The American political party of self-proclaimed small limited government and personal responsibility brings you this ugly mess:
…Texas anti-porn law that requires age verification… would have exposed consumers to “significant privacy risks” by forcing adult-website visitors to show digital IDs. …these laws give states “the power to harass and censor legal businesses” and that allowing states “to suppress certain speech by requiring invasive and burdensome systems that consumers refuse to engage with is simply state censorship.”
At this rate “invasive and burdensome suppression of rights” should become the Texas state motto.
US District Court blocked the Texas censorship law a day before it was to take effect, calling it unconstitutional.
