SEOUL, South Korea Moon Tae-Hwa stares at his computer, dizzy and nauseous from the hours of porn he’s viewed online while his wife and children slept. He feels no shame — only a righteous sense of mission. “I feel like I’m cleaning up dirty things,” the devout Christian and family counselor said. Moon is among the most successful members of the “Nuri Cops” (roughly “net cops”), a squad of nearly 800 volunteers who help government censors by patrolling the Internet for pornography in their spare time. Unlike most developed nations, pornography is illegal in South Korea, though it remains easy for its tech-savvy population to find. More than 90 percent of South Korea’s homes have high-speed Internet access, and more than 30 million of its 50 million people own smartphones. “It’s like shoveling snow in a blizzard,” Moon conceded. But while there is no chance the government will wipe out porn, it also shows no sign of giving up the fight.

There have been a lot of movements throughout history that needed unwavering dedication. The Civil Rights movement. Women’s Suffrage. Movements and protests that were so difficult it was almost like battle or war. Really needed to stay devout in order to succeed. But an anti-porn movement in an Asian country is just about the most futile crusade of all time. Its like trying to stop the Irish from drinking or the black people from filming fights at a waffle house screaming World Star Hip Hop! in the background. You can’t do it. Its just what they do. I mean what would Asian people do if they weren’t watching pixelated tentacle porn? They legitimately wouldn’t know what to do. If you try to stop Asians from eating cats and dogs, they’ll starve. And if you try to stop them from watching porn, they won’t have anything left to live for. “Its like shoveling snow in a blizzard” is fucking right man. Except the blizzard is a big hentai cartoon bukkake fest.
