    If the political will is there, governments can do as they wish with our tools and the internet.

    Ask North Korea, China and others who are doing just that.

    Tor can be used to bypass those blocks imposed governments.

    No and no.

    That Cambridge study you quoted clearly said compulsive users, not all or the average user. And the 50% figure is even among those compulsive ones only. And male only. You can get addicted to anything and that'd be bad for you.
    It is just one of many.

    These study results are consistent with 110+ Internet addiction brain studies, many of which also include internet porn use. In short, there's ample (and growing) peer-reviewed scientific support for the addiction model.

    The issue is children.

    I repeat. If the government will is there, anything can be done including shutting the whole thing down.

    Our tool are tool. Not sacred cows.

    You do realise that if the Government shut down the entire internet that the UK would collapse into anarchy in a matter of hours if not minutes.

    Not so. Almost all companies and businesses I know have manual back up systems in case of shut down of the net.

    If they do not, then they do not really produce any product that is essential to us because if they did, they would have back up systems.

    Correct.

    And to just sit back as parents and members of a society, when so many bad things are happening to so many children, is quite bad and if a society lets that evil continue without fighting to reduce the harm, --- then it is showing that it is not a moral society.

    The way would be to help addicts, not to ban porn.

    People get addicted to eating and shopping. Do you ban eating and shopping?

    It's like an arms race though. The government takes down a website and 10 mirrors of that site pop up immediately in foreign untouchable jurisdictions. So the government orders all British ISP's to block access to those 10 sites. The ISP's do this, but people connect to a VPN allowing them to bypass the block. If you wanted to ban VPN's you'd get opposition from very powerful people as corporations make heavy use of them for work, and even then people can use TOR and configure it to hide the fact that they are connecting to the TOR network in case the government started trying to block access to it. It is more simple for parents to take more responsibility, in not allowing their children unsupervised internet access for example.
