This was certainly a bold position for a mainstream media publication to take.
The New York Post dared to question whether the failed sexual revolution of the 1960s actually did more harm by destroying families than it did in liberating people to pursue sex any time, any way, with anyone without consequence.
The biggest and most overlooked side effect of that revolutionary failure is fatherlessness.
Kids are growing up confused, hurt, angry and lost. I know, I was one of them. Back in 1969, I was the victim of divorce at age 8 before no-fault divorce became mainstream.
There are so many societal problems that can be attributed back to the sexual revolution. I’m glad some people are finally beginning to take notice.
From the New York Post:
Declining life expectancy, mass shootings, alarming rates of mental illness, rising white nationalism, the opioid crisis.
By many measures, our society is in trouble, and we are ignoring a root cause: the unprecedented familial dispersion that followed the 1960s sexual revolution.
At heart, that revolution aimed to radically sever human sexuality from marriage and child-rearing, from the responsibilities society had hitherto imposed on the individual sexual appetite.
Afterward, fatherless homes, family shrinkage and breakup, childlessness and abortion all became commonplace. The net effect of these changes is having fewer people to call one’s own.
