MessageNo, the enthusiasm of people to work in these 'exploitative' industries encourages its development. This bill only lets people do what they want to do.

MessageWhat you see as enthusiasm, we only see as desperation for work. We must provide the desperate with a better means of living than this.

MessageWhat you see as desperation, we see as freedom of choice. What you see as 'must provide', we see as 'must impose'.

If you want to give poor people money, you should be free to do so, if you want to not see porn, watch a non-porn channel, but leave everyone else alone.

MessageWe believe it is not a matter of the state to decide on what you migt or might not watch on your screen. It is up to the broadcast cooperations. If viewers do no like the programming they can switch to eg TTV 2. Furthermore organizations can try to influence the policy of broadcasting cooperations.

MessageThose who are desperate for work/out of work are not free to choose their workplace. They will take disgusting jobs to put food on their tables, and we believe that this is one of those particular industries which is naturally more exploitative than any other particular bourgeois industry, as the exploitation is especially tangible. We will continue to vote against this bill.
