    And I'll get flamed for this, but why is mere possession of CP illegal? It just gives the government unjustified massive abilities to invade our privacy unnecessarily, in search of bits arranged on a disk drive in a particular order.

      If no one is allowed to have it, it's supposed to remove one of the incentives to produce it. Also, I'd say that the victim is re-victimized every time someone views an image.
