I want to acknowledge you for that whole point on responsibility because one of my goals is to help build a child’s self-esteem but for me the definition also includes responsibility because if you like yourself and feel good about yourself and respect yourself you also respect others. When you respect others you act responsibly towards them and towards yourself…Believe in themselves.

Wow! If I could only make one change it would be the way the love has to have legislation to be put in place, and the family courts systems to recognize parental alienation. And try alienation syndrome as something that is real and that it happens and be able to put in place the steps and tools that they need to recognize it to teach all of the people involved from the judges down to the therapists on how to recognize it and to actually implement things in the court system to protect target parents and more importantly to protect the children from this very very sad but real case or ways of child abuse.

If I had the wand in my hand, and if I could make everybody…And this is something we didn’t even talk about, and it just poped in my head. If everyone had encrypted passwords and a different one for every account…”Bing” [laughter] that would be… [Dave: And not have to memorize them.] And not have to memorize them, and actually I have a logorythm I learned actually, from the Kaspersky group. I learned a logorythm that you can do, and I’ll post that too, so you can create, so that if it’s a different password every time and it’s easy to remember.

Oh boy, and I’m suppose to give an insightful answer, but on the cuff. Well, I suppose if I could wave a magic wand, I would have parents be very concerned, interested, and invested in what their child is doing and viewing on the Internet. Because they need to supervise, children are nieve, children are needing help and guidance. They need loving adults who care about them.
If I could wave that magic wand I would have parents be more invested in watching what their child is doing, and not be afraid to say nope, we’re not going there, or nope that one’s off limits, and to be the parent in the situation. Be the parent in the home, run the home, children feel more secure when parents run the household.

So really, if I could waive my magic wand, my magic wand would be to impart all of this knowledge to parents, so they could understand the depth and breadth of the issues facing their kids. So, they can help whether or not that means putting technology measures in place. You know, that really isn’t the end all and be all. The end all and be all is to create a safe environment for their kids online. So, whether that means going to the manufacturers, Microsoft or whether that’s Google and say, “hey we want a safer environment for our kids and it’s up to you to deliver that”. That would be my magic wand.

Basically, we have to understand that today that we have a different world than we had even five years ago especially ten, or fifteen, twenty years ago when the Internet first came into its own.
What we have today is an epidemic of people who are affected by pornography.
Recent convention of divorce lawyers, fifty some percent of them said pornography is a factor in most divorces that they handle. You find doctors more and more seeing patients that are addicted [psychiatrist rather] who are seeing patients addicted to pornography.
You’re probably familiar with the online site Candeo. I am a big fan of theirs; they help to retrain the brain away from the addiction of pornography, and they’re telling me about kids they’re getting as patients who are addicted to pornography.
That doesn’t surprise me because kids are so involved. So, first of all you have to realize that we are in a crisis situation. It’s not just a matter of telling people that looking at pornography is a no no. It used to be, to get pornography you’d have to go into a porn shop or a place like that. Today everybody has got it…
As a practical matter every man ought to purify himself, people might think that’s a funny word “purify”. No, I think a man’s spiritual life ought to promise God that he’ll stay away from pornography. Just don’t look at it and any site that that even come close to it, and there’s are a lot of sites, which have the swim suit models and what not; news stories about so and so topless. Don’t go to those sites just keep your mind on the straight and narrow because any effort that attracts you to that kind of materials takes away from not only your spiritual life, but from your family. But every man ought to have purpose of avoiding that material.
We ought to all have our computers out in the open. So many families have a computer room or a place in the house, the bedroom of the kid where they can have access to the computer. That is wrong because even inadvertently materials pop-up. You want the computer where someone else can see you on it. That’s why I like libraries that have their computers right out in the open like mine does right here near my house.
The other thing that I think people should do in this pornophide society, in the mainstream businesses, the local drug store, or bookstore, the hotel that you stay in, the cable company that you subscribe to, politely tell those people who are running those businesses that you’re disappointed that they’re involved with pornography. I find when I do this with stores that I’ve made a regular habit for about thirty-five years of my life. If I’m in a store that sells pornography, drug stores have it, you know other stores, I tell the clerk that, and often times I will say would you mind if I told the store managers.
Nobody else has complained, now you don’t do it in such a way that you offend them, you just let them know. But, if you could just get your neighborhood, if you have a neighborhood store that’s got a gas station or a drugstore that has porn. Get people involved in going in there to mention it politely.
Pretty soon, they think everyone is opposed to it, and they will take that material out. I’ve seen it over and over again, so we all can contribute a little bit and then as I said earlier in the program we have to let out governmental officials know that these issues are important, especially in our addictive society today.
Let Congress know you want more money to prosecute pornography. You want the Justice department to prosecute pornography, let them know, let the President know. Let you local legislative leaders know that this is an important issue, that there should be scholarships available to people who are addicted but who cannot afford a service like Candeo, which is online to get them over their addiction or to go to a doctor or what not.
There should be teachings in every school about the harm from pornography. No one thinks there’s a real benefit. Who’s going to say that, the pornographers? People know instinctively that this is not a positive trend. You might get the Civil Libertarians arguing with you, but who cares.
Society is at risk now and we have to save it.

The gap is closing, because as you know, I didn’t have the Internet when I was in high school, but towards the end of college it was really rising in popularity and that bubble was growing very very large.
So, my kid right now just turned one so when she is a teenager I will be one of those parents that didn’t grow up on the Internet so I still know what the real world is like without it, I still regard it as a tool. I’m not, you know, ten, fifteen years my younger to where I grew up on the Internet and that’s all I know. But I think when people that are my age and have kids that are adolescent and teenagers that were sort of at that cusp of like my young adulthood was when the Internet really kind of exploided. So, I remember that life without it. I think that that group of people will kind of be when the gap closes because there’s that understanding.
What I’m really really afraid of is what happens, you know, if the parents right now don’t talk to the kids right now, who are going to be the next genration and when they have adolescents and there the ones who grew up on the Internet, always putting their public, always making their information public, always tweeting everything about what they’re doing, where they’re going, no sence of self-private space left. What happens when their parents, if they never learned that lesson as a kid, never learned to seperate the real world from the digital world. When they become parents, what happens to their kids?

I think that you should smash any perceptions that you have of them and just be willing to help. That person may not be open to your help yet, but they don’t want to live that way, and so, you just make sure they know you’re there when they’re ready.
And if I could wave a wand, I would just ask anyone whether they have a Godly, or a fear of God, or knowing of God at all, but to just pray to him and ask for that help in that first step. But I think if you start there, the doors open to so many other wonderful things, and you know just start with that foundation.
And like I said if you are a friend, like I said, just be there. Don’t be critical; don’t give your opinion why are you doing this, just say I’m here. Take note of what you see on that friend and if you see them with a black eye write down the date on your calendar, even if you are doing it for a year, you know, it helps their case in the court room and things like that.
So, if you’re a friend just let that person know you’re there, and if you’re in that situation male or female just start in your bathroom or your room by yourself and ask God for that help.

The Magic Wand…One thing I could see that would, that we could change…Is that what my magic gets to do? Lets me change something?
It’s just for continued change, how about that?
For the longest time I wished that people, that everyone engaged around this regulation would except that it exist and find a way to make the best of it.
I think that’s happening now. So, what I’d like to see is just more companies acknowledging and admitting that there having, that they’re providing content, they’re providing these feature to kids and stop blocking them. But rather put their hand out to shake the hand of the parent because the more parent’s that know, the more kids that ask to get their parents involved the better chance we have of educating the family about what needs to be done for Privacy Protection and then just general safety and security on the Internet.

Well, thank you for the Magic Wand. If I had a magic wand, I think that when it comes to the Web Of Trust, I would just invite everyone to join us and to share your experiences by rating web sites. And know, that the people who work hard on making their websites the best that they can be, who work hard at customer service, who work hard at presenting whatever content they have, they deserve to have a good rating from us, even if we don’t always agree what they’re serving us. They deserve to have a trust worthy rating, and the only way we can do that is by working together and for the people who are really knowledgeable about security like a whole lot of our users, who are actively working to keep the Internet safer.
You know, it gives those of us who aren’t so confident; it gives us that confidence that we can go and explore into the dark neighborhoods of the Internet. That we can maybe wander off the beaten path and do a little bit of fun and adventure.
That’s what the Internet is all about, you know, some people say that it’s like a big library and everywhere you turn you can find something cool. You can find something undiscovered and something really interesting. And we want to give people that security that when they are exploring, and their searching, and their shopping in the new online place that they can have the confidence and they can know they got useful information. They can make an informed decision about whether they want to continue or not.
And so, I invite everybody, all you users, I hope we can collaborate together because the Web Of Trust I think provides some real, relevant, useful information that helps people surf the web safely and that’s our goal.
