Project: To Clean Up Thought

Cleaning up the earth and its atmosphere has become a popular concern in today's world. Cities such as London and Pittsburgh have done wonders in freeing themselves from the fog and smog for which they were once notorious. Elsewhere, energetic efforts have helped to clean up the ground we walk on, as well as some lakes and rivers. For all that has been achieved so far we can be grateful, as it tends toward making the world a better and pleasanter place.

But while these improvements have been taking place, another, and even more objectionable and lethal, kind of pollutant has been proliferating. Increasingly, the deadly poison of pornography and other obscene material has been clouding our mental atmosphere, despite legislative efforts in some countries to maintain a high standard of propriety in literature and entertainment.
