use propaganda to make it unappealing. make it look gross and unsavory. similar to how certain things are portrayed in mainstream media that make them desirable or undesirable. taking a heavy-handed approach doesn't work, we've proven that throughout the years already.

Serious Sanction the country that harbours and protect this industry and it pediphilles. ISRAEL, EG Malka Leifer just one of many the Israel government protects.

It's a "Supply and Demand" situation. As long as there is a demand there will always be a supply. Focusing on the demand aspect would be more effective than focusing on the supply. But how to do that is difficult to figure out. I would research cultures that have the least amount of demand and figure out what it is that they are doing and try to apply it to others.

Really it’s almost impossible to eradicate any crime. But you can significantly deter it by throwing people in jail for lengthy sentences when they get caught. Scare them into compliance. It won’t work 100%, but it’s been very effective in most societies.

Put AI to some good use to find it. In addition to criminal penalties the perverts should be treated for the psychological order causing them to desire children with very very strong meds in a secure environment.

Chemical Castration. Lengthy Jail Sentences.

I think it is difficult to make child porn appear more unappealing, gross and unsavory than what already is, I don't think anybody consider people that consume it as examples of "cool" people.

You can't eradicate it, unless there's a coordinated effort for it.

Swamp the market with AI generated stuffs, if it's a video, in the middle of it a mutilated ghost suddenly appear on the screen. With how fast AI can generate images and videos these days, good luck finding an "original" one.

Put a tracker in the AI generated files, so we can track the history of IP addresses of computers that the file has been stored, downloaded, uploaded.

Catch them, suppliers and consumers, put their names and pictures on public servers everyone can see. No, if you intend to hurt children, you don't get the rights or privileges of "privacy".

I don't think anyone can offer a good solution to this problem. The idea of eradicating something has been proven to be very difficult in the past. Remember the USA's "war on drugs", well, they still have drugs, lots of them. And then there's piracy, both software and media. Limewire went away, but the piracy didn't.

Squash this issue any way you like, it won't make it go away, if history is anything to learn from.

Stopping the production would be the most important tactic, I'd assume. If there's nothing to sell or possess, I guess it becomes rather difficult to sell or possess it.

I agree with what many are saying above. But what Spidey has pointed out: "I would research cultures that have the least amount of demand and figure out what it is that they are doing and try to apply it to others."

is spot on. Many of the Japanese arts (dramas, anime, music, etc) fantasize the Japanese school girl which could lead to more demand for products like these. Studying countries with the least amount of consumption would be a good start.

All these posters saying that lengthy jail sentences are a deterrent obviously haven’t looked at how successful actual capital punishment is as a deterrent.

Do what governments have done with cigarettes. Like @Toshihiro said, make it as unappealing as possible through measures that I can’t even begin to imagine.

One start here would be to completely change the culture of timid turning a blind eye. Oh, that won’t happen.

How about stopping the publication of, and displaying of borderline child pornography in convenience stores?!

Eradicate the fiends that produce and sell it. Committing such an evil act deserves nothing less than a bullet right between the eyes.

Child porn followers have a similar disability as people with the delusion of thinking they are a woman when actually a man. Is that ok now?

Channel such urges away from real children toward mange, anime, etc. The more fantastical, infantile looking characters with alien ears etc., the better. The biggest problem with child porn is that it involves actual abuse of actual children. The second, weaker, problem is whatever acts child porn might inspire the viewer to do, but this involves speculation. It is obvious that other content, e.g., video games like Grand Theft Auto, does not cause copycat criminal behaviour.

For the above reason, I do not oppose Japanese porn manga depicting clearly young characters. This does not mean I think people should read them in public, on the train etc.

No, you just castrate them and chop off their penis. No problem ever again.

After that, you use them as guinea pigs to test all new Covid vaccines.

Most effective is to eradicate all the people. Much harder and less efficient way is to take better care of the children around the world so there is a lesser chance for them to become a porn material.

That has absolutely nothing to do with the text you quote or the original text it is responding to, just making an appeal for violence that would make you feel better.

And to push antivaxxer propaganda at the same time even if it makes no sense and is not related at all with the question asked.

Good point. This approach has actually been proven to work for some aspects of this.

If would be good if it was not already something that applies to the activity, it does not matters at all how much sense the advice to make something wet is when this is said about water.
