Careless Love: Hookup Sex Culture a Symbol of America’s Declining Character
Does it matter what people do behind closed doors? In fact, a nation’s character is uniquely exposed by its sex life. For example, in ancient Rome, despite adulterous and homosexual acts being illegal between citizens—adult and pedophile activities were rampant between Roman men and their slaves. This occurred since slaves were not persons, but things (res) that could be treated however the owner chose. Obviously, such corrupt practice degraded the entire nation, helping lead to its demise. In the same manner, the US is also in grave peril from our increasingly unfettered approach to dating, procreation and family life. When even our president advocates for easy and late-term abortions for his own daughters, we realize how savage and short-term our values have become.
