When and where will the sexual revolution end?
Where will the 1960s sexual revolution end? - That is an interesting question.
Let’s imagine we have created a time machine and we can travel forward 15 years in the UK. By then paedophilia will have been made acceptable and there will be special government allowances for same sex marriages. Of course the Prime Minister will be homosexual and in a same sex marriage, and there will be strong pressure to have same sex marriage for a future Archbishop of Canterbury.
The next great step forward will be in legalizing unions between people and animals. Although bestiality would have been legalised five years previously, many want to regularize their relationship with their animal partner with marriage, preferably in a church. Here there will be powerful voices from the human rights lobby, the homosexual lobby and the women’s movements.
The BBC will, of course, be fiercely campaigning on this issue with nightly programmes demanding justice for those having sexual relations with animals.
You can also rest assured that papers such as the Guardian would host vast numbers of letters supporting this cause.
However there suddenly occurs a serious problem. It is the animal charities; they have been strongly opposed to it. They are all debating whether the animals can give proper consent to these marriages.
Of course to the rescue comes the BBC who wheel in a large number of animal psychiatrists, psychotherapists and psychologists. They all agree that of course the animals can give consent; furthermore, the animals also want to regularize their relationships with marriage.
Eventually the animal charities will be forced to give in and agree to the legislation. Soon after that, the government pledges legislation for a human and animal marriage Act.
This will be greeted by a standing ovation in the House of Commons.
All a bit far-fetched, my future speculation? I don’t think so.
If we take our time machine back to, say, 1960, and showed our 1960 audience what is happening now, they would find it difficult to believe.
They would see that we have wall-to-wall pornography that children watch regularly via their computers. Homosexuality and all kinds of perversions are promoted daily on the media.
Normal married life is rapidly disappearing and people feel entitled to multiple sexual partners (often of both sexes), a lifestyle that is illustrated and promoted on every TV soap. Children as young as 4 are being sexualised by commercial interests. One can go on ad infinitum but it is all too depressing. At the end of the day the 1960 audience would be aghast and leave the time machine in horror.
But unless one does something about it the future is bleak for Western man.
