Electronic Publications: The Emergence Of A New Age
By: The Desert Fox
In a world of media, propaganda, television, and the sovereign
exchange of information, yet another aspect of this boundless resource has
been born. The formula is not new. However, it has taken precedence as one
of the mainlines of information. We are talking about the up-and-coming of the
The numerous types of electronic publications distributed throughout
cyberspace range in topics from intelligence on software and hardware, to
free speech and the legal issues which have a consequence on the ever-growing
telecommunications world. Electronically produced publications have grown
in leaps and bounds in the last year. The number of individuals on the net
requesting this information has also increased. And as long as people are
interested in this concept, and need the knowledge that is provided, the
electronic publication concept will survive.
Such publications as 'Phrack', 'NIA', 'The World View', 'FBI', 'CDC',
'Informatic', and scores of others have published news on major happenings
in the telecom community, as well as worthy information on many different
types of computer systems, operating systems, and security issues.
The EFFector, a publication distributed by The Electronic Frontier
Foundation, focuses on legal issues in cyberspace. As the telecommunications
community becomes more evolved and complex, the law will come into play.
And The EFFector will be more and more important as time goes on.
In many cases, some types of issues covered by electronic publications
would not have been addressed by other mediums, such as television, and
newspaper. Therefore, this concept becomes vital due to the lack of attention
given to consequential stories...in effect, we take it upon ourselves as
editors of publications to educate the masses...because the dominant mediums
have neglected to do so.
One cannot put a price on the informational value of these magazines.
We, as editors, take an alternative view of the world, and write about it.
Computers, modems, and telecommunications issues have not yet been accepted
by the populace as 'newsworthy'. However, everyone in cyberspace knows that
we are the frontiersmen of a era that will live in infamy. We are the
groundbreakers for a new technology. And we report on it with the utmost
urgency and priority. Those who choose to discount the concept of the
electronic publication, and the urgency of the information produced in these
times of electronic suppression, will submit to the vat of electronic
benightedness. At some point in time, the issues covered in today's e-mags
will concern everyone. And those who are an operative part in today's
generation will be able to proudly look back and affirm, 'I was a
frontiersman, ...a groundbreaker'.
In summation, I hope that you will advocate the electronic
publications of your choice. All of them may not accommodate your taste,
but there is something out there for everyone. Below are some addresses you
might consider contacting in order to get on the mailing list. Thank You.

--==[PART 1 Of 3]==--
The following submission is PART 1 of a 3 part series on teen curfews.
This law has been enacted in Houston, as well as other cities around
the country. It is only fair that we give equal time and space to those
under the age of 21...as they are not considered 'active agents' in our
infamous society. The law that this submission refers to and the
opinions that may be expressed herein, are not necessarily those of the
World View Staff. This curfew does not in any way apply to the
editorship of this publication, however, as editor(s), we are against
this police action. Thank You!

ASSESSING THE SCOPE OF MINORS' FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS: JUVENILE
CURFEWS AND THE CONSTITUTION
Although there is no longer any doubt that children are "persons
under our Constitution" whose "fundamental rights the State must
respect" (1), it is also clear that the rights of children are not
coextensive with those of adults. The unique developmental and
emotional characteristics of childhood give rise to special state
interests that in some cases may justify restricting children's rights
more severely than the rights of adults. The tension between state
interests and the rights of the "child as person" reflects conflicting
and unclear visions of the role that the government should play in the
lives of its minor citizens, and manifests itself in the uneven
development of the law of juvenile rights. With regard to juvenile
curfews -- laws that ban only minors from streets and public areas
during certain nighttime hours (2) -- courts have often struck the
balance between children's rights and state interests in favor of the
state. The result has been the substantial curtailment of the liberties
The rights infringed by curfews -- freedoms of movement,
association, expression, and other liberties that contribute to social
and intellectual growth -- are rights that minors as well as adults
possess. Courts have nevertheless upheld juvenile curfew ordinances (3)
on the basis of the often cited but seldom clarified principle that the
rights of children are subject to greater restrictions than are the
rights of adults (4). But the courts' failure to examine critically the
scope and legitimacy of this principle in specific instances has
stripped the principle of its justificatory power and transformed it
into a mere restatement of conclusions reached without reflection.
The courts' failure to articulate specific rationales for affording
less protection to the rights of minor citizens than to those of adults
is indefensible. The state may have special interests in protecting and
guiding children, but if the fundamental rights of minors are to have
any content, the state's power to override those rights by asserting
special interests cannot be plenary. Rather, the state's special
interests should extend only to a relatively narrow band of concerns
that relate to the unique developmental and emotional vulnerabilities of
children. Only if courts require a strict correlation between the
child's special needs and the actions of the state can the state's
unique interests be served with minimal infringement of minors'
fundamental rights (5).
I. CURFEW ORDINANCES
The differential application of curfew ordinances to minors and
adults in this country strikingly exemplifies the law's special
treatment of children. Whereas curfews affecting adults have generally
been struck down as unconstitutional (6) except when temporarily imposed
during a state ofemergency (7), some permanent curfews applying only to
minors have been upheld as valid exercises of the police power (8).
Moreover, although they are usually enforced only sporadically if at
all, juvenile curfew ordinances -- in contrast with curfews aimed at
adults -- are widespread (9).
The Supreme Court has never addressed the constitutionality of
nonemergency juvenile curfews, and the federal and state courts that
have confronted the issue have failed to reach a consensus (10). Courts
have frequently sidestepped equal protection objections to juvenile
curfews by striking down challenged ordinances on grounds of vagueness
or overbreadth (11). In addition, some courts have invoked notions of
substantive due process or equal protection to invalidate curfews as
impermissible limitations on the fundamental rights of minor citizens
(12). Other courts, however, have given far less weight to the rights
of minors and have upheld juvenile curfew ordinances (13). Relying on
the established doctrine that the "state's authority over children's
activities is broader than over like activities of adults" (14), such
courts have found that general prohibitions of minors' presence in
public areas between certain hours are reasonable in light of cities'
interests in protecting children, reducing juvenile crime, and promoting
parents' knowledge of their children's whereabouts.
This reasoning was adopted in Bykofsky v. Borough of Middletown
(15), the first federal case involving a constitutional challenge to a
juvenile curfew, in which the Third Circuit affirmed without opinion the
district court's finding that a narrowly drawn curfew ordinance was
valid. Although recognizing that such a curfew would have infringed the
fundamental rights of adults (16), the trial court balanced the
borough's interests in the safety of the children and the community
against the liberty interests of the children and held that the affected
rights of minors were not fundamental (17). Because the court believed
that fundamental rights were not at stake, it applied only rational
basis scrutiny and upheld the ordinance (18).
Although the Bykofsky court noted that the Supreme Court had not
articulated a framework for analyzing differences between the rights of
children and adults (19), it offered no such framework of its own to
justify its conclusion that the rights of minors merited nothing more
than rational basis scrutiny. The court instead relied upon generalized
assertions about children's immaturity and vulnerability -- assertions
that cannot alone justify wholesale infringements of the rights of
children. Although greater restrictions of children's rights may be
warranted in some cases, the state should not be permitted to dilute the
rights of a citizen simply because she is below the age of majority. The
relevant inquiry with respect to any restriction on the rights of
children is whether the restriction is truly justified by state
interests pertaining uniquely to children. Such an inquiry entails not
only an analysis of the overall scope of minors' rights and the state's
special interests, but also an assessment of the weight courts should
accord those rights and interests in each particular case.
II. THE SCOPE OF CHILDREN'S RIGHTS
A. The Rights of Children as Persons
As courts have recently begun to recognize, children possess
fundamental rights and enjoy constitutional interests shared by adults
(20). Indeed, the Supreme Court has forcefully declared that "whatever
may be their precise impact, neither the Fourteenth Amendment nor the
Bill of Rights is for adults alone" (21). Despite this pronouncement,
however, the Court has declined to consider the "impact of these
constitutional provisions upon the totality of the relationship of the
juvenile and the state" (22). The Court instead has continued to
maintain that, although "[m]inors, as well as adults, are protected by
the Constitution and possess constitutional rights" (23), the state
nevertheless has greater power to restrict the rights of children (24).
Thus, the Court has held that a state may legally create different
obscenity standards for minors and adults (25) and that a minor's right
to privacy is not necessarily violated by a statute requiring a doctor
to notify a minor's parents before performing an abortion on her (26).
Yet although it is clear that children's rights are not coextensive with
the rights of adults, confusion persists as the Court continues to
determine the scope of children's rights on a case-by-case basis without
constructing a practical, comprehensive framework for analysis (27).
Restrictions on the fundamental rights of children are typically
justified by reference to the unique characteristics of childhood. The
primary characteristic cited in support of such restrictions is
developmental immaturity, or the child's lack of intellectual and moral
capacity to exercise her rights so that she harms neither herself nor
others (28). Although children's rights advocates and legal scholars
alike have repeatedly challenged this underlying assumption of
incompetence (29), the assumption continues to pervade the law and
profoundly affects the social and legal world in which children live
(30). Unique concerns about the developing minor not only serve to
rationalize state intrusions, but also motivate them and often result in
substantial restrictions of liberty -- restrictions usually cloaked in
Such restrictions are justifiable in certain cases: there can be
little doubt that children are, in some respects, different from adults.
Because their capacities of reason and emotion are not yet fully formed,
children are more likely, in certain situations, to make decisions or
take actions that may cause serious damage to the children themselves or
to others or may even alter the course of their entire lives. But the
danger in recognizing differences between adults and children is that
this recognition can easily become the end of analysis. Children as a
class are necessarily different from adults, but the differences need
not always be constitutionally significant, and the mere fact of
childhood should not be a sufficient justification for differential
treatment in a given case (31). Although the state, when restricting
the rights of minors, may claim to be acting in the minors' best
interests, this claim of paternal concern should not deter the courts
from critically examining the state's actions (32).
SOCIETY AS A FLUCTUATING PROCESS OF WANT AND NEED
It has been said that our society as a whole has no goal, and that we're
quickly going down The Tubes because of this very fact. Individuals are
becoming more and more dissatisfied with what they are getting out of life,
and are complaining to the wind about their "terrible hardship", which in
fact is little more than a mild inconvenience in comparison to the strife
They suffer, because they are in a service network (READ: Society) that
is not allocating satisfaction to them in return for their labor.
A society, by definition, is a dynamic system of personal interactions.
When those personal interactions are meeting the needs of a majority of
individuals, then a society is said to be "successful". The Soviet society
has proven unsuccessful because it suddenly admitted to itself that it had too
many bombs and not enough bread on the shelves. It also lacked the freedom
of spiritual expression, which *IS* a human necessity.
The Democratic Capitalist society has proven successful so far, but for
two main reasons:
a) There's a whole world out there to take advantage of
b) There's plenty of people willing to bring in new riches.
I'm not slamming our current social structure, but I have to say THIS:
We have a lot of sharks in our bathwater. we cross-feed on ourselves and we
regurgitate more than we originally bit off. That's Capitalism -it's like
Alchemy, where you create more that what you originally had.
But just as alchemy can be explained away with chemistry, Capitalism as
a Magickal society where everything is alright forever is debunked by the
fact that we've been TAKING from the world outside our borders and adding to
our internal wealth. This is why we as a nation have been getting richer and
richer for the past several decades.
But the planet is a closed system, and we eventually WILL NOT be able to
allocate others' wealth into our borders. When that happens, this country
will be in as big a heap of trouble as the Soviet society has been in these
past few seasons.
In actuality, THERE IS NO PERPETUALLY OPERABLE SOCIETY. Needs are
always in flux and when the needs of a reasonable number of people are no
longer met, society changes. This is the way of revolution, the way of
secession, and the way of a true democratic election (in its pure form).
Tides turn, things change. Social purpose is inconsequential.
But I know a LOT of people who are saying that society's not meeting
their needs, and the fourscore and seven homeless folk I see every day
suggest to me that a change is in order.

fantatical anti-Communist stance and its heavy conspiracy
weaving. The group was founded in 1958 by Robert Welch and named
after a WWII army officer. Their conspiracy theories are well-
outlined in "None Dare Call It Conspiracy", a book by
Trilateralism "expert" Gary Allen. This is shit you get warned
about in college government courses. The Birch Society also
publishes the American Opinion magazine. If you look in your
local phone book, you might be able to find the phone number of
an American Opinion bookstore in your town. Since many of these

of that Individuality Who is known to the world's major religions
variously as the Christ, the Messiah, Krishna, the Imam Mahdi,
Maitreya Buddha, and to esotericists as the World Teacher. His
reappearance is expected in this time period, in one way or
another, by millions of people throughout the world." They will

Biblically proves the Jesus Christ was NOT celibate. "Most
of our literature is devoted to theology about the real Goddess.
Biblically, She is the female of two original persons, Who are
God. Much Later, She resurrected Jesus Christ with Her special
Divine Energy ("Holy Spirit"). After doing this, She initiated
Jesus for ascension to Godhood (Although born human, Jesus had
the Divine hereditary Components. These were inactive, and Jesus
was not God before being initiated)."
Volume 1 Index
By Brain On A Stick
World View Distribution Manager
Well, here it is. After a couple of days of rereading all ten of
our past issues, I've finally put together this index. Due to space limitations
I couldn't go into alot of gory detail about each article;
besides, I wouldn't want to bring that much work on myself anyway! The
main reason I compiled this index was to let all of you readers know what
you missed in past issues so that you can use it as an aid in requesting
back issues. For those of you who are interested in requesting back
issues, contact me at BRAIN@TARONGA.COM. Let me know if there is a size
limitation on the files you can receive. I've included the size of each
issue for this purpose. For those of you who requested back issues in
the past and never got them, sorry. My old account at the University of
Houston died and I was unable to get back to you. I'll be sending you
letters shortly to see if you're still interested.
