In Harmful to Minors journalist Judith Levine looks at the latest government growth industry, the plethora of laws meant to protect the young from sex. She marshals evidence showing these state measures are more harmful than beneficial. Among those hurt most, are the very people supposed to be protected. The young are being imprisoned and forced to register as “sex offenders” for actions considered normal only a few years ago. Real threats are exaggerated, making the young even worse off than before.
