In this episode the podcast, Sam Harris speaks with Gabriel Dance about the global epidemic of child sexual abuse. They discuss how misleading the concept of “child pornography” is, the failure of governments and tech companies to grapple with the problem, the tradeoff between online privacy and protecting children, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, photo DNA, the roles played by specific tech companies, the ethics of encryption, “sextortion,” the culture of pedophiles, and other topics.

One of the worst facets is how a general awareness of the issue has morphed into an array of the most ridiculous and counter productive conspiracy theories on offer.

It’s bad out there. I’ve hunted a few. Most groomers share a tactic. They limit test and confuse, limit test and confuse, over and over to the kid’s they spot as susceptible to moral/sexual dilemmas.

Yeah. Imagine considering something as horrible as this… a cultural universal by any objective measure and imagining that only your political adversaries are guilty of it. Stupidity sheltering evil. As it ever was.
