Motto: Learned until proven unlearned.

The Law:

Every man and woman that desires to partake in a line of higher education but doesn't have a conventional history and confirmation of educational standing thereof,  shall have the lawful right to be able to prove his learnedness and be judged and placed thereby.  Thus no one shall be judged by his academic history alone; and if one's academic history is not what is the conventional key to open the door to what he/she wishes to study, he/she may earn that key "right here and now" thro preliminary trial of proof.  Every course shall conduct this "trial of proof" before the course begins for students that need them.  If they don't, legal actions and ill repute may be brought against the conductor of the course and the educational institute for lawbreach.

Recently a man was brought to trial for possesing what police called the largest child porn collection they've ever seen. The 'man', a wealthy dentist, owned something in the range of 500,000 pictures, countless VHS tapes, dvds and reels. His punishment? 9 Months, house arrest. The justification for such a short sentence? Possession of materials is not as vile as abuse and production of materials. But isn't it? Supply has to meet demand and it's quite obvious from the size of this animal's collection that he helped fuel the market which in turn destroyed countless lives. Where's the justice? I'm not even sure what my point is other than to say whatever system is in place, it's a mockery. The more cases end like this, the more these animals will thrive. It's in moments like these, heinous crimes like this, that the law of Hammurabi becomes most appealing.

I think law specifically must become much harsher against child pornography, but on the other hand, if it does not become much more harsher about pornography in general and therewith, then these crimes shall continue to grow where we don't know they are growing.  
If people are being caught for this, and taking it such foul outrage, there are people most likely that are commiting it and not being caught.  There must be greater and harsher laws; and there must greater and harsher public opinions and actions.  The law must act, and the public must very morally act of selfwill.  Until that happens its not likely a substantial difference shall be made.
