(Refuting Free Love is a collection of right-hand-column linked articles related to the subject at hand. This is to refute the whole so-called sexual revolution and the ideas of “free” sexuality – it loses souls, degrades man and destroys society.)
Turning away from God. It always begins the same way; it always ends the same way. When man turns away from God, nothing good comes of it, unless and until he turns back. It always ends badly. Making oneself “free” of God always winds up involving a return to the ways of Sodom and Gomorrah, just as the dog returns to his own vomit.
The Sexual Revolution of the 60s was just another manifestation of the “Enlightenment” thinking that pretended to be a freeing of the mind from ancient superstitions and old taboos. It was the only part of the 60s and 70s Marxist revolution in America that succeeded, or at least that succeeded above ground; the rest of the Marxist revolution, defeated for the time being, went back underground, or at least became more quiet, and began biding its time and rebuilding itself, mostly in academia.
But the Make Love, Not War part of it not only survived, but grew, and spread. It destroyed a lot of souls and led a major portion of the younger participants into sexual slavery of some sort, under the banner of Free Love. They thought they were being freed from something. But all the various practices they began to participate in have an addictive element to them, and a malicious psychological twisting of the rational mind. It moves man away from common sense and the ability to tell simple right from wrong. Remember when the “Sit-Ins” became “Love-Ins”? Remember Woodstock?
In this not-so-small part of that revolution, the revolutionaries didn’t really know what the whole revolution was about; for them, it just became a wild party involving drugs, booze and sex. It was a pure pleasure binge, nothing more and nothing less. There was an anti-war – pacifist element to it, in which massive numbers of young minds had been mal-educated into believing that America was somehow the aggressor nation in the Vietnam War. So, they would wave anti-war banners for awhile, and then screw for awhile, and then smoke dope for awhile.
Look to the linked articles in the right hand column of this page for how all this “freedom” came to be accepted in a Christian nation. Today, in the so-called “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrations, once again we can clearly see that most of the “useful idiot” revolutionaries are clueless about what they are even doing there, except for those who are paid to be there. And, of course, except for the professional Marxist revolutionaries, anarchists and terrorists scattered in among them. It’s happening all over again.
God help us.

Much of what you say seems correct; but sometimes you go overboard. Here you tie the sexual revolution to Marxism, but Marx never promoted free sex. Some of the participants may have been inspired by Marx, but the sexual revolution itself had nothing to do with Karl Marx.
I like your writing, but you seem to be preoccupied with Darwin, Freud and especially Marx, and you sometimes take it just a bit too far.

Marx did indeed promote free sex, and he attacked the normative family, along with all decent social and societal norms. His writing, more than that of any other, may have inspired the radical feminist movement as well as the free love movement.
Here’s a little quote of Karl Marx for you to consider:
The quote is from the Communist Manifesto, authored by Karl Marx and Frederick Engles; Karl Marx actually wrote the whole thing.

The relation between Marxism and the sexual revolution is closer than one might think. Look up in internet "Cultural Marxism" (Prof. Lind et al.) and the Frankfurt School of Social Research. Marxist (Luckas, Gramsci, Adorno, Horkheimer, Marcuse and others) developed a strategy of attacking and culture and transforming its values as a foreplay to revoluton unto socialism. Freudiansim was fused with Marxism to postulate the "sexually repressed" (= tradition religious ethics of marriage) in place of the proletariat as the class to revolutionize. The matter is too complicated for the few words of a comment. Today a German Prof. Honneth at Columbia is continuing the Frankfurt School. The point is to break down the family, sexualize society and divide society into protesting groups (Black Studies, Feminism, etc.). Focusing on the so-called superstructure (= cultural values) instead of Marx's postulated substructure (economic structure) is the means used to promote Marxism culturally.

Thank you for that insight. I have written a little about the Frankfurt School, in the Modernism page and elsewhere, but I think most of all of that is lost on the most current generations of Americans. I don't know how to get through to contemporaries I talk to about it. They cannot see any relationship between Marx's revolutionary intentions and any purely cultural and moral social trends, that, to them, seem natural and unrelated to any revolutionary movement.
I suffer from a similar puzzlement regarding how so many younger Americans (most everybody is younger than me these days) simply cannot see for themselves the clear and obvious Marxism of President Obama, and the serious drift into Marxism of the whole of the Democrat Party, and the whole of the News Media.
To me this innocent, child-like naivety is the most insidious and dangerous threat posed to America, and the world, by Marxism. It has a greater chance of eventually succeeding than direct revolution. Once a people's morality is destroyed, everything else will fall like dominoes. Everything - economic health, social stability, individual independence, national defense - everything depends, first, on a good base of morality.
Thank you again.

Everyone who is not Catholic is not a BMDFP, and everyone who does not subscribe to being married with 2.25 children, a dog and a cat is not a Marxist, nor is everyone of a different sexual orientation evil. There may be some truth in what you say but you take it too far when you seek to limit sexual freedom. Why can't you just live and let live?

I agree with everything you said except for the last part; however, for me, the ideal family would have ten or more children. Generally, the larger the family, the stronger the family, and the greater the number of strong families, the stronger the larger culture will be found to be.
As to the last part, it is not we, the religious-Right and the American Constitutionalists, who seek to limit sexual freedom; quite the opposite. The Constitution doesn't allow us to limit your sexual freedom. Sexual freedom is not listed among the limited and enumerated powers of government in the Constitution, and therefore the government has no legal business even addressing the subject in law, whether through legislation, execution or adjudication of law. Sexual freedom is a matter for local community standards, not federal law.
It is your Party - the Party of sexual freedom - that seeks to impose unconstitutional laws, regulations and court-case precedents in law imposing your immoral views upon us, the larger culture. It is you who seek to forcibly change the whole of our law, the whole of our cultural morality and the whole of our national ethos to be more like yours, if not exactly like yours. To legally force us to love your immoral choices.
Bottom line, your vision of sexual freedom is in truth sexual enslavement and addiction to a particular sensual behavior or method of achieving sexual gratification. It is as addictive as any drug, or more so.
Any perverted sex - definitively, any attempt to achieve sexual gratification that precludes procreation - is nothing more than an exercise in mutual masturbation (or, perhaps, singular masturbation), nothing more and nothing less.
Homosexuals, fornicators, adulterers and those using contraception are merely using each other as sexual playthings; as sexual playgrounds and mere objects of temporary pleasure. No commitment; no promises; no responsibilities; no real love. Mere masturbatory aids. The means to an end.
Infantile addiction to sensual pleasure is a piss-poor form of freedom.

The Purpose of this grouping of links is to highlight the planned and purposeful moral degradation of human culture, in Western Civilization in general, and in America in particular.
The Death of Morality Pages
Beginning, perhaps, with the Reformation, with a mighty surge in the 1930s with the social acceptance of artificial contraception, social standards today are now so low as to make a harlot blush. Professional politicians of all Parties cooperate with Marxist-materialists in all other fields to actually suppress religion and the morality that flows from religion, not only in the public square, but everywhere, following the moral degradation of popular entertainment.
Refuting Free Love: the whole 60’s era of Make Love Not War & Sexual Revolution. From Revolution, to Riots and Anarchy, to Sit-Ins, to Love-Ins, the horrible results demand a refuting of free love.
Artificial Contraception: Tool of Materialism with which to destroy Monotheism. Acceptance of Artificial Contraception marked the single most destructive turning point in the history of Western Culture, marking the end of moral norms, foretelling tolerance of anything at all.
The Sexual Revolution: Sexual Freedom, or enslavement and degradation? The Sexual Revolution was supposed to free us, rather than enslave us, and uplift us, rather than degrade us. It was a lie from the beginning; it degraded whole cultures and attacked human dignity.
Welcome to America's Protected Multi-Billion Dollar Masturbation Industry . That the government simultaneously censors Christian expression and protects pornography, the main product of the Giant Masturbation Industry, is a pure national disgrace.
Abortion in America: Supreme Court takes complete charge of American Government. Through decisions regarding abortion, the Court arbitrarily and without opposition, systematically undid representative, legislated law in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and Made New Law.
Being pro choice or pro woman's right to choose equals being pro abortion. Saying you are pro choice, or pro right to choose, is saying you are pro abortion. Period. Pro choice equals pro abortion.
Femi-Nazi -ism: The Leftist, authoritarian Movement that commandeered Feminism. The Femi-Nazi Movement seeks to modify our language and culture, restrict our speech and press, and create and alienate yet another "disenfranchised" group.
Homo Nazi -ism assaults the Western Culture ethos of our American majority. The grass-roots Homo Nazi is for the most part a simple immoral selfist. But the homo-Nazi in the rarified atmosphere of city, state and national politics is a much more sinister character.
What does normalized, mainstreamed, open homosexuality say about us as a people? Our argument against open homosexuality is an argument for the continuance of Western Civilization, the Western Culture Ethos and the normative family.
So the Marxists get their wish again: an openly homosexual American military. An openly homosexual American military has been the goal of Secularists, Marxists and other Democrats for decades.
On Evil and Nonsense: Look closely at Nonsense, and find Evil at its root. Evil and Nonsense: deny evil and you deny right vs. wrong; which is to deny common sense, which is to invoke nonsense.
