Does Our Celebration of a Lack of Virtue Portend US Collapse?

Does it matter what people do behind closed doors? In fact, a nation’s character is uniquely exposed by it’s sex life. For example, in ancient Rome, despite adulterous & homosexual acts being illegal between citizens—adult and pedophile activities were rampant between Roman men and slaves, because slaves were not persons, but things (res) treated however the owner chose. Obviously, such corrupt practice degraded the entire nation, leading to Rome's fall. In the same manner, we are also in grave peril from our increasingly unfettered procreation & family life. When even our president advocates for easy late-term abortions for for his own daughters, we realize how savage & short-term our values have become.

So how is America’s character revealed in its sexual mores? The American family has endured much destruction the 50 years. Half of all children born to women thirty and under are now out-of-wedlock. This single statistics represents shocking tragedy for several reasons. First, fatherless-ness is the leading cause of US poverty. Second, millions of children are at risk for a staggering increase in crime, substance-abuse, and mental-health issues. Third, and perhaps most troubling—entire generations are being instructed by implication that fathers are nothing, and fatherhood’s symbolism and authority meaningless compared to libidinal urges or the right to simply create an ad hoc family from one parent.

The hookup culture focuses fleeting experiences over real life ascribing the most cynical values to all. To promote these values means sowing them into the lives of our children, making them the bedrock weltanschauung of America itself. Therefore, these habits pose the gravest danger to the longterm viability of the USA.
