Purchase vs Possession of Pornography

can see making the purchase of various types of pornography illegal since that encourages exploitation of the models. However, that is not the way the law works. It is possession of pornography that is illegal, even when it is viewed for free on the Internet, thus mildly costing/harming the pornographer. This legal thinking derives from a religious fervour to make others conform to religious norms, not to protect victims. By the principle of separation of church and state, that intrusion of privacy should not be permitted.
