->''"Wertham wasn’t the only anti-comics hysteric, but he was the first to do a whole book out of the subject, and his testimony formed the bulk of the anti-comics portion of the 1953 juvenile delinquency hearings that ended up crippling the industry. Wertham’s testimony, equal parts irate nonsense and also book tour promotional stop for ''Seduction'', which had just come out, got half the mothers in the country terrified of just what comic books were doing to their poor, susceptible ''LeaveItToBeaver'' [[TheFifties 1950s]] kids. His testimony contained no scientific data, was based on no credible research, and willfully misrepresented the content of the comics he was using as examples, but he brought with him [[KnowNothingKnowItAll the veneer of a very respectable doctor]] [[ThinkOfTheChildren fighting the good fight for the kids]]."''

->''"'Think of the children' being a slogan that almost completely forecloses any possibility of actually doing so. 'The children' are in the end a nebulously defined potential utopia severed from the lived experience of any actual people. They are non-existent but ideal citizens, defined by the very fact of their non-participation in sex or politics. When the child becomes an adult - i.e. an actual functioning citizen, they notably lose this aura of protection, rendering the [[{{Hypocrite}} ugly fallacy]] of this rhetoric clear."''

It is diabolical...it is a form of idolatry."''

When He speaks to your heart, you don’t end up feeling beat down, discouraged, and hopelessly flawed...If it feels like someone is shoveling wet cement onto your back and you’re feeling more and more burdened with every word you read, then you’re not hearing from the Holy Spirit.
