Sexuality & Civilization

1-31 copy
Only societies that have successfully sublimated rampant male sexuality into marriage have built civilization.

The world is filled with countless cultures but only one civilization. A civilization eschews violence in favor of voting and replaces bullets with ballots. A civilization respects and values its women, escorting them onto the lifeboats before the men. It values life and protects it by advancing the study of science and medicine. It lifts its citizens from drudgery by promoting a vibrant economy. It prefers beauty to vulgarity and gentleness to brutality. Its basic unit is the family.

Every society that has successfully achieved civilization has learned that indulging human desire in unrestrained fashion leads both to personal and societal calamity. Everybody knows that overeating with no self-control is bad. People all recognize that alcohol without moderation brings massive problems. Yet, when it comes to sex, many feel that unrestrained indulgence is liberating and progressive. The tragedy is that unbridled concupiscence does more to rot the fabric of a society and erode the spirit of its citizens than almost anything else.

One thought on “Sexuality & Civilization

  1. “Only societies that have successfully sublimated rampant male sexuality into marriage have built civilization.” This makes me chuckle because women doctors have written that it was restraining the sexuality of females that allowed for the family to form and remain stable. Western Christian civilization has been in a state of denial as to women’s sexuality for many centuries. We are now seeing women’s sexuality unrestrained and what do we have? You know the statistics. Nuff said.
