Obscenity and censorship are perhaps the most unsettled areas of constitutional law in this country today. To many, the deep divisions and divergent attitudes of the Justices of the Supreme Court constitute an intolerable state of affairs for a functioning system of jurisprudence. This article will not present a panacea for these problems. But in an area where disagreement abounds, examination of the approach of another legal system can lead to clearer thinking, reorientation of analysis, and a better over-view of the entire area. Since many of the problems which have plagued the courts in this country have likewise been raised in Swiss censorship litigation, the reader should find Swiss solutions enlightening.
