The old taboos are dead or dying. A new, more permissive society is
taking shape. Its outlines are etched most prominently in the arts in
the increasing nudity and frankness of today's films, in the blunt,
often obscene language seemingly endemic in American novels and plays,
in the candid lyrics of pop songs and the undress of the avant-garde
ballet, in erotic art and television talk shows, in freer fashions and
franker advertising. The people are breaking the bonds of Puritan
society and helping America to grow up.
Newsweek Magazine editorial, June 22, 1967.
The Sexual Revolution is the most welcome social development of all
time. Women, men, and children have been freed from all their hang-ups,
sexual and otherwise, and are now finally free to live their lives as they
Newsweek was right on the mark a quarter century ago as it cheered
the demise of the "old taboos."
We as a society certainly have "grown up" but, in the process,
we have lost what little innocence we did possess in the mid-1960s.
We have reaped all of the benefits of unfettered freedom, as well
epidemics of sexually-transmitted diseases, tens of millions of abortions,
unintended sterility on a massive scale, pornography that leads people to
kill, a tripling of rape and child abuse, the near-destruction of both the
family and marriage, and more than a hundred thousand deaths due to AIDS.
All of this for sexual freedom. But we knew all along that the Devil
always exacts his price didn't we?
Today, we are freer than we ever were before as individuals. We
are free to fornicate, sodomize, abort, make and peruse pornography,
destroy our fertility permanently or temporarily, abandon our spouses and
children, and 'shack up;' what more could we possibly want?
Nothing because there is nothing else! But are we as a
society as free? Why is there more crime? More suicide? More people
seeing psychiatrists? Why are we a desperately unhappy and paranoid
Could it have anything to do with our obsession with unlimited personal
freedom? Could it be that the drive for unlimited personal freedom will
actually lead to a general loss of our individual liberties?
Satan's Empty Promises...
Promise Them the Moon.
Early birth control pioneers promised us that the availability of free
sex would create a literal Paradise on earth. If only they could have
their way, abortion would end; there would be a virtual stop to all
divorce, because married couples would be happier and more stable; child
abuse and neglect would cease; even street crime would be eliminated.
In essence, both men and women would be 'freed up' for higher, creative
Of course, the early birth control pushers promised us anything
to get us to buy into their philosophy. Margaret Sanger, founder of the
American Birth Control League (later Planned Parenthood), promised us that
[Because of birth control], child slavery, prostitution, feeble
mindedness, physical deterioration, hunger, oppression and war will
disappear from the earth. There will come a Plato who will be
understood, a Socrates who will drink no hemlock, and a Jesus who will
not die upon the cross. These and the race that is to be in America
await upon a motherhood that is to be sacred because it is free.
The writers of the 1929 work Sex and Civilization echoed Sanger
when they wrote that "Women in the past have been confronted with the
empty victories of political freedom, of economic freedom, of social
freedom. But with the winning of biological freedom, women and men and
children will enter triumphantly into an era that will in every sense be
The sex and death peddlers are still at it, of course. The National
Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) promised us much more recently that
Legal abortion will decrease the number of illegitimate births ... A
policy that makes contraception and abortion freely available will
greatly reduce the number of unwanted children, and thereby curb the
tragic rise of child abuse in our country ... Legal abortion will
decrease the number of unwanted children, battered children, child abuse
cases, and possibly subsequent delinquency, drug addiction, and a host
of social ills believed to be associated with neglectful parenthood.
The Fruit Revealed.
Did these promises bear fruit?
They certainly did, but the fruit was rotten indeed. Instead of all
mankind's ills being eradicated due to the easy availability of birth
control, they have all skyrocketed, as shown below;

Despite all of this tragedy, the libertines continue to insist that the
only thing we need is more freedom to do anything we want. Too many
"unwanted pregnancies?" The obvious solution is more free birth control
and more taxpayer-funded abortions. Too many AIDS cases? The only solution
is more privacy, more freedom, and, of course, more indoctrination (excuse
me, I mean education).
Perhaps we could learn a few lessons from the example set by Sweden,
which is considered by the country's sex experts to have reached all or
most of the goals they set for themselves.
Sweden is in even worse shape than the United States. In Sweden in
1986, 48 percent of the 101,950 children born were illegitimate, and this
figure has steadily risen past the 50 percent mark. Most children now live
in one-parent homes or homes where one parent is shacking up with another
person. The country's child abuse and neglect rates have soared, and crime
against persons and property is steadily increasing as well.
Hans Nestius, the prime mover of Sweden's 'sexual revolution,' now
admits he was wrong, saying that "We must bring back some rules, for it is
not love that has spread, but sexual excesses and corruption."
Fruits of the Sexual
Every major social change has its identifying features, and the
so-called 'Sexual Revolution' is no exception. Perhaps its most persistent
identifying mark is that its participants have shed responsibility to a
The 'Sexual Revolution' (and Neoliberalism) in essence embrace the idea
that nobody is really responsible for his or her own actions. If someone
does commit some act that is considered even beyond the elastic
Neoliberal boundary of 'acceptable behavior,' such acts are not the fault
of the person; they are always the fault of someone else, or of society
unless, of course, they are 'crimes' against the Neoliberals, like racism,
sexism, or homophobia.
Then the blame can be fixed very individually indeed.
The primary goal of the Sexual Revolution unlimited sexual freedom and
gratification has been met. But the price has been very high indeed. Some
of these social expenses are listed below and are described in the
FRUITS OF THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION
(1) Increased violence, including rape;
(2) Destruction of marriages;
(3) Increased promiscuity;
(4) Increased abortions;
(5) Increased illegitimacy; and
(6) Exploding rates of venereal diseases.
Fruit #1: Violence and Rape.
Raping for Fun.
In April of 1989, thirty New York City teenagers received national
attention when they went "wilding" in Central Park. "Wilding" consists of
going on a rampage of violence for the pure fun of it, attacking, robbing
and raping any person unfortunate enough to come in sight of the
The New York kids went "wilding" purely for the fun of it and, among
others, a female jogger lay in a coma as payment for their sadistic joy.
Incredibly, some Neoliberals jumped to the defense of the killer pack.
According to the 'Rev.' Herbert Doughtry of Brooklyn, "All of us must
share the blame. This is a violent society. We are all guilty for creating
it, and we must work to eliminate it."
Carl Dix, of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, had his opinion of
who was responsible for the brutal assault. Guess who? SURPRISE!! "The
rulers and their system!"
Nobody is Really Responsible.
The stupidity of such statements is absolutely appalling. Notice the
classic Neoliberal tactic: The murderer, rapist, or robber is never
responsible for his actions. It is always someone else who's responsible.
By diffusing the blame by saying that these killings are society's fault
means that they are really nobody's responsibility. Therefore, it
is nobody's job to do anything concrete about it! We as individuals are
completely absolved of responsibility.
This attitude gives the most violent maniac the perfect excuse to do
anything he wants, and is the perfect summation of the Neoliberal attitude
that nobody is really responsible for his own actions.
Naturally, the 'victim syndrome' is in full force here; if a sodomite,
abortion mill, or minority is the target of violence, there is an
immediate outcry of rage from the Left; but if the target of violence is a
member of the 'oppressing classes;' i.e., White and/or male, there is no
This myopic attitude, of course, has led to a tripling in the rate of
rape and child abuse over the last fifty years, as predators seek out
those who are weaker than themselves and inflict violence upon them.
Although the Neoliberals will deny the link to their dying breath,
abortion legitimizes this type of violence.
Chapters 41 and 79 of Volume II respectively show that the rates of
child abuse and rape really began to escalate about the time that abortion
Fruit #2: The Destruction of
More 'Shacking Up' Than Ever.
More than 40 percent of all couples in the United States now live
together ('shack up') before marriage. Their reason: They want to make
sure that they're "compatible." They don't want to rush into something
that might not work and cause pain for everyone involved. They say that
it's best to have a trial run first.
Just to make sure, you see.
Sound sensible? Of course it does! Is it sensible? Of course
James Bumpass, James Sweet, and Andrew Cherlin of the University of
Wisconsin completed in 1989 a long-term study to determine the effect of
prenuptial cohabitation on marriage. Their findings showed that more than
75 percent of all couples who lived together before marriage
eventually divorced more than 50 percent more than the general
population! Why is this? There are two primary reasons;
• Those who cohabit are less traditional in their family values. This
means that true commitment and willingness to 'work at it' are far more
important to the success of a marriage than a selfish, self-serving
"fling." Obviously, many of those who 'shack up' never intend to get
• Those who have 'shacked up' are naturally far more likely to commit
adultery in marriage than those who haven't. This makes sense adultery
is, like fornication, a tangible result of lack of discipline and
Neil Bennett of the National Bureau of Economic Research confirmed
these figures when he performed an in-depth study of 4,996 Swedish women
who cohabited for periods ranging from one month to ten years. His report,
entitled "Women in Sweden," found that, of those cohabiting women who
eventually did marry, their divorce rate was 80 percent higher than
for those women who did not shack up before marriage. Longevity in
shacking up didn't seem to help a whole lot. Those women who cohabited
with their future husbands for more than three years had a divorce rate 50
percent higher than for those women who did not live with their future
husbands before marriage.
None other than Mahatma Gandhi clearly enunciated the difference
between a relationship based upon true love, devotion, and commitment, and
one based purely upon lust;
Love based upon indulgence of animal passion, is at best a selfish
affair and likely to snap under the slightest strain ... Is it force of
habit which makes us think the sexual act to be necessary and desirable
for the promotion of love, apart from procreation, in spite of the
innumerable experiences to the contrary that it does not deepen love,
that it is in no way necessary for its retention or enrichment?
When both want to satisfy the animal passion, without having to
suffer the consequences of this their act, it is not love, it is lust.
We have not had enough education of the passions ... Love becomes lust
the moment you make it a means for the satisfaction of animal needs.
The Critical Importance of the Family.
Our fallen human nature relentlessly drives for more and more freedom
regardless of the damage that is done to society. In the end, of course,
if society dies, individual freedoms soon follow collective freedoms down
However, this seems to be of little consequence to the sex-crazed
Neoliberals. They fail to see that the destruction of marriage and the
family has always led to the killing of the afflicted society.
Psychologist Zevedei Barbu wrote of the period just before the fall of
the Greek Empire;
To start with, marriage was no longer considered a strict duty for
the individual, as it was in the old days, but rather a convention,
moreover, an artificial institution. The decline of conjugal fidelity is
the main proof of this. Illicit unions no longer shocked the people.
In such a world dominated by a demimonde spirit, the individual
withdrew himself from his society into the realm of his own interests.
The birth rate fell step by step with an increasing desire for comfort
and luxury. Men avoided as much as possible the duties of fatherhood.
Abortion and exposure were frequent and seldom punished ...
Oswald Spengler wrote a frightening parallel to Barbu's statement in
The Decline of the West;
You are dying. I see in you all the characteristic stigma of decay. I
can prove that your great wealth and your great poverty, your capitalism
and your socialism, your wars and your revolutions, your atheism and
your pessimism and your cynicism, your immorality, your broken-down
marriages, your birth control, that is bleeding you from the bottom and
killing you off at the top in your brains can prove to you that these
are characteristic marks of the dying ages of ancient states Alexandria
and Greece and neurotic Rome.
Will we heed these warnings in time? Or have our addictions to sex and
freedom already doomed us?
We will almost certainly find out by the turn of the century.

Index listing in Wilt Chamberlain's
autobiography A View From Above.
It goes without saying that the wide availability a drug like the birth
control pill would appeal strongly to those persons with no particular
sense of sexual ethics.
After the Pill was introduced in the mid-1960s, fornication and
'shacking up' both almost doubled in a period of only five years. This
behavior also increased steeply when abortion was legalized in 1973.
People of all ages (but especially teenagers) are now fornicating more
than ever before. Wife-swapping clubs, sex addiction treatment
organizations like Sexaholics Anonymous, hard-core pornography, and
'fantasy [sex] tours' to Far East nations for the purpose of taking
advantage of enslaved prostitutes have increased tremendously.
Even the original developers of the birth control pill now acknowledge
that their invention has led to widespread promiscuity. Dr. Robert
Kirstner of Harvard Medical School said that "For years I thought the pill
would not lead to promiscuity, but I've changed my mind. I think it
And Dr. Min-Chueh Chang, one of the co-developers of the birth control
pill, has acknowledged that "[Young people] indulge in too much sexual
activity ... I personally feel the pill has rather spoiled young people.
It's made them more permissive."
Min-Chueh was certainly correct in his assessment of the situation. In
1970, only 4.6 percent of all girls aged 15 had fornicated before
marriage. In 1990, this rate had increased more than sevenfold to 33.1
percent. Of all unmarried girls in the 15 to 19 age bracket, 28.6 percent
had fornicated in 1970. This rate had more than doubled to 61.4 percent by
Fruit #4: Increased
It may seem counterintuitive to assert that the vast increase of
contraceptives that has been a result of the "Sexual Revolution" would
contribute to a huge increase in abortions. After all, isn't contraception
supposed to prevent pregnancy?
Well, it is supposed to, but it doesn't. The birth-control pill
manufacturers and the 'family planning' groups like Planned Parenthood
have convinced the public (and especially teenagers) that if they stay on
the Pill or use condoms, they will be "all right."
This, of course, assumes that contraceptives work all the time and that
they are used correctly all the time. However, since contraceptives
frequently fail, and since there has been a huge increase in the use of
birth control methods in the last 25 years, the inevitable result has been
a huge increase in 'unwanted pregnancies' and, of course, abortions.
Chapter 99, "Contraceptive Effectiveness and Use," shows that there are
more than two million contraceptive failures in this country alone
The connection between higher contraceptive usage and greater rates of
abortion has been acknowledged by the birth controllers themselves
for a very long time. A quarter-century ago, Dr. Alan Guttmacher, the
President of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, warned that
"When an abortion is easily obtainable, contraception is neither actively
nor diligently used. If we had abortion on demand, there would be no
reward for the woman who practiced effective contraception. Abortion on
demand relieves the husband of all possible responsibility; he simply
becomes a coital animal."
Shortly after the legal barriers to abortion began to come down, but
still two years before Roe v. Wade, abortion statisticians Dr.
Eugene C. Sandburg and Dr. Ralph I. Jacobs noted that many careless women
simply didn't use a form of birth control at all, because 'abortion as
backup' was so much easier and more convenient; "As legal abortion has
become increasingly available, it has become evident that some women are
now intentionally using abortion as a substitute for contraception."
Finally, after a decade of examining the demographic impacts of
permissive abortion laws in this country, Dr. Christopher Tietze wrote
A high correlation between abortion experience and contraceptive
experience can be expected in populations to which both contraception
and abortion are available ... Women who have practiced contraception
are more likely to have had abortions than those who have not practiced
contraception, and women who have had abortions are more likely to have
been contraceptors than women without a history of abortion.
Fruit #5: Illegitimate
The inevitable result of the combination of increases in fornication
and of 'unwanted pregnancy' is obviously an increase in illegitimate
Professor Kingsley Davis of the United States Commission on Population
Growth and the American Future states that
The current belief that illegitimacy will be reduced if teenage girls
are given an effective contraceptive is an extension of the same
reasoning that created the problem in the first place. It reflects an
unwillingness to face problems of social control and social discipline,
while trusting some technological device to extricate society from its
difficulties. The irony is that the illegitimacy rise occurred precisely
while contraceptive use was becoming more, rather than less, widespread
The illegitimacy rate for births among teenaged girls hovered around
five to seven percent for decades, until about 1960. Between 1960 and
1970, it doubled as the birth control pill helped usher in the 'Sexual
Revolution.' After 1970, the teenage illegitimacy rate literally exploded
as comprehensive sex education programs and school-based clinics were
The overall illegitimacy rate for all children born in the United
States was 5 percent in 1960. This rate has more than quintupled to more
This phenomenon is not just an ethical or religious concern: It is a
profoundly practical one. It is common knowledge that children born into
one-parent families are more likely to be abused and abusive, are much
more likely to be undereducated and underemployed, are much more likely to
have illegitimate children themselves, and are much more prone to criminal
Fruit #6: Exploding Rates of
Some wrathful deity is extracting revenge for our decade-long orgy.
Rolling Stone Magazine, March 4, 1982.
In the 70-year period from 1920 to 1990, the rate of venereal disease
infection per 100,000 population has risen 750 percent. The cause of this
explosion, which has taken place mostly in the past 20 years, is increased
fornication and promiscuity.
This might seem obvious to the casual observer, but the sex educators
and pill pushers just can't seem to make the connection.
The Situation in 1920.
In 1920, venereal diseases were concentrated in a very small segment of
the population: Prostitutes, promiscuous homosexuals, and a small
percentage of men (and sometimes women) who had the financial means to
seduce a succession of sexual partners.
The average person did not even consider 'sleeping around,' because the
morality of the time simply prohibited such activities. Anyone who did
'sleep around' was properly condemned as immoral and irresponsible.
Naturally, a lot of publicity was generated about the 'roaring 20s,'
but, once again, this 'high society' activity was mostly practiced by the
rich in larger cities. Those who indulged in completely uncontrolled
sexual promiscuity represented no more than one percent of the population.
Only twelve sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs) were catalogued in
1920, and seven of them were rare indeed. Today, there are over 50
recognized strains of STD, and more are being created every year. AIDS was
nonexistent in 1920, and now it has killed more than 150,000 people.
The following paragraphs describe just a few of the many venereal
'blessings' the Sexual Revolution has showered upon those who partake of
Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, which did not even exist 15 years
ago, largely afflicts the most promiscuous and compulsive sex addicts of
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) attacks the body's immune
system, rendering the person vulnerable to a host of opportunistic
infections. To date, more than 150,000 persons have died of AIDS-related
complications and health authorities believe that at least an equal number
of unreported deaths have occurred.
For more detailed information on AIDS, the nation's first and only
politically-protected plague, see Chapter 122.
Dr. V. Livingstone, in her mid-1940s public health work in New York and
New Jersey, noted that virtually all long-time prostitutes had contracted
cervical cancer from almost continuous sexual activity. Now, forty years
later, there is an incredible rise in the nationwide incidence of cervical
cancer among promiscuous young women who are not prostitutes.
Since the most effective detection of this STD involves a review of the
health histories of sexual partners, many infected persons are reluctant
to undergo diagnosis, and continue to spread the disease. Antibiotics can
cure this STD over a period of from one to two weeks.
This infection is caused by two closely-related strains of virus,
Herpes Simplex Types 1 and 2, which may infect the lips, eyes, fingers,
mouth, nasal membranes, and genitals.
Herpes used to be rare in this country, but now more than three million
Americans are infected, with 300,000 more joining the ranks of the 'elect'
every year. Symptoms include flue-like indications after about a week. The
virus usually resides near the spinal cord, and returns to the site(s) of
infection at fairly regular intervals, causing another round of symptoms
There have been studies that suggest links between genital herpes and
cervical cancer, and some babies of infected mothers are born infected
themselves. These babies commonly suffer profound nervous system damage,
blindness, mental retardation, and death.
Genital herpes is very easily transmitted, is incurable, and changes a
person's entire lifestyle until the day he or she dies.
Genital Warts (Condyloma).
The rate of incidence of this STD, caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV),
has increased 400% in the last 15 years. Despite their name, these warts
may occur at any moist site on the body that has been in contact with
infected areas of other people who carry the virus. The latent period
ranges from a month to a year, so a newly-infected person may transmit the
virus very easily before realizing he is diseased. The infected person
must usually undergo repeated treatments involving cauterization, laser
burning, or use of powerful drugs such as podophyllin or trichloroacetic
HPV has been linked to cervical cancer and the warts may even block the
birth canal, causing infections and mandating cesarean births.
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID).
This condition is not an STD, but is commonly caused by gonorrhea,
chlamydial infection, and other STDs. It is a broad term referring to a
group of infections that lodge in the uterus, ovaries, and Fallopian
tubes. About 15 percent of all women will suffer from PID at some point in
their lives, and 1 million new cases are reported each year.
PID is a serious matter. About one-fourth of all outbreaks are severe
enough to warrant hospitalization, and about 150 women die of PID each
year. PID causes half of the 60,000 annual cases of ectopic (tubal)
pregnancies in the United States. Tubal pregnancies account for about ten
percent of all pregnancy-related deaths, and its incidence has tripled
since 1965. The primary cause of this increase in PID has been the
increase of gonorrhea and chlamydia.
A single occurrence causes one in eight infected women to become
sterile. This probability increases to one-half of all infected women by
the third occurrence. PID also causes reproductive abscesses, chronic pain
and physical disability, and repeated illness.
As with STDs, PID is most common in promiscuous women under 25.
Antibiotics, including ampicillin and tetracycline, usually arrest or cure

parallels between our society and the Israel of Hosea's time make this
book frightening and motivating reading. The killing of God's most
innocent creations is a heinous sin that cries out to God for vengeance.
Using the story of the prophet Hosea as a model, the author warns that God

innocent blood; but, if we persist, the wrath of God is inevitable and it
will also be directed towards those who stood by and did nothing. If your
