This article does not examine pornography from a historical materialist perspective (when did it arise? why?), does not analyze the pornographic form (it's a type of commercial sex; since when do socialists champion commerce?), nor does it explain why pornography is worth actively defending, as if it had any redeeming or progressive qualities; instead of a rigorous argument making the positive case for pornography (I don't think it's possible to make such a case), we get a long, sterile rant against censorship and thinly disguised advocacy of laissez-faire policy that fits perfectly with the politics of libertarianism and not socialism. Very disappointing to say the least.
