Below, FADER editors Ruth Saxelby and Jason Parham debate the good and bad of music leaks.
JASON PARHAM: We live in an economy of excess, and modern existence demands one have a voracious appetite to stay afloat.
A few governments have enacted laws to allow prosecution of its citizens for child sexual abuse committed outside of their home country.
However, while laws against child sex tourism may deter situational offenders who may act impulsively, pedophiles who travel specifically for the purpose of exploiting children are not easily deterred.
Consequently, many of us have become flabby information-craving cyborgs molded by the advent of the internet and its subsequent interfaces: chat rooms, email, the once-treasured Blogspot, Facebook, Twitter.
Pedophiles use the Internet to plan their trips by seeking out and trading information about opportunities for child sex tourism and where the most vulnerable children can be found, generally in areas of low income.
Child sex tourism results in both mental and physical consequences for the exploited children, which may include sexually transmitted infections (including HIV/AIDS), "drug addiction, pregnancy, malnutrition, social ostracism, and possibly death", according to the State Department of the United States.
Child sex tourism, part of the multibillion-dollar global sex tourism industry, is a form of child prostitution within the wider issue of commercial sexual exploitation of children.
