the insane bravery Jonathan Calder

In an act of almost insane bravery Jonathan Calder of Liberal England takes on the national overreaction about paedophilia. Yes it is a very bad thing, but it is also a very rare thing. Is sealing all children in plastic cocoons to stop any possible interaction with adults for fear that they may encounter the exceptionally rare individual that finds them attractive sensible? And when we deny any organised things for them to do is it any surprise when they end up as teenagers very bored and unable to interact with the rest of society, the society that cut itself off from them in order to protect them from a phantom threat.
