When a nation dwells upon perversion and sexual exploitation, might they be doomed?
Why does it seem that the over abundant reference to sexual matters and perversion, has led to the demise of many great nations?
Quite the opposite, great nations flourish from expression, artistic, scientific and sexual. All the greatest growths of our species occur at such times, whether it be the golden age of ancient Greece or the Renaissance, and indeed when our society is in free fall we see the increase in sexual repression (as in the middle ages).
Progress and growth is linked to free thinking in all areas.
You are correct sir. And the United States is right up there with the worst of them. Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed for much less than what is currently going on in this country.
I think when people are obsessed with the private lives of others, and deny them rights because they do something that they personally find a little 'icky' (but is harming no one) is where nations come undone, and doom themselves.
A private life is a private life - it is when one gets involved in someone else's private life that things turn to custard.
It is when a nation becomes obsessed with other's consenting private lifes, that they neglect to look around them at the other things that are going on - that should concern them more.
Focusing on sexual matters allows more dire concerns, such as terrorism, poverty, health, to be pushed aside, ignored, or contentious laws get passed through quietly whilst everyone is focused on something that REALLY shouldn't concern them.
So is it sexual matters causing the dooming? No. It's the focus on it - something that really shouldn't be of such a huge focus - that detracts from the REAL picture...the things going on in the background that no one is noticing.
We see it here in New Zealand - Contentious and divisive issues for the government are given a lot of media coverage, and laws that are likely to not have gone through if the public had been aware are passed. Such as the Anti-Smacking Bill - there were a few other laws passed at the same time...no one noticed till it was too late. I'm sure it's happening with the Marriage Equality Bill here in NZ as well (though, I'm invested in that one - it gives me the rights I am denied currently....) but the ones going through in the background whilst it is debated are a little concerning.
YOu cannot blame a persons sexual preferences etc for the dooming of the nation - it is the fixation with other people's lifes that is the dooming.

Is the word 'Pervert' applicable only to men? If yes, then why so? If no, then how would you define a 'Female pervert'?

Boy Scouts. Why are people forcing them to accept gay members and leaders? I get gay rights. I wish we could get along on the issues of gay marriage or something equivalent. I became a Life Scout and loved the...
