How could it be done? How can we get these fuckers to stop accessing CSAM? What the fuck is wrong with them? Why won’t they stop? What are solutions that you see that can accomplish the goal of reduction of CSAM usage by >98%?
I still feel very strongly that a law requiring all imported electronics and storage devices (Including printers with internet connection) to have software installed that can detect known illegal images of minors and block them from view in real time is extremely desirable. As it can completely destroy any CSAM collector. I want to see the look on their faces when they realize all their “hard work” has been completely and utterly destroyed by a windows update. I’d laugh so hard at them flying into blind range that they would no longer be able to revictimize another innocent. I also think experimenting with AI that can block unknown CSAM from view for the web surfer (such as in a browser) is desirable by detecting features that only exist in minors and if they are in a sexual composition and auto censor in real time.
Sadly, I don’t see these ideas being experimented in the United States, but perhaps a country like Iran, Turkey, China, Russia or even a seastead could try it out, and if it works, we could adopt that idea here in the US! I know it’s strange that I named fairly authoritarian regimes, but maybe some good might come out of their willingness to censor. If some good comes out of it, than we can take the good aspects of authoritarianism and apply it to the free world.
If no solution is convincing, than AI and filtering laws will simply have to happen, sooner or later. If not in the US, maybe in Russia, China, a seastead, or on Mars when Elon Musk colonizes it.
