The Slow-Motion Destruction of Taboos and How it Leads to Authoritarianism • Liberalism has successfully normalized taboos, everything from legalizing pot, pornography to sexual deviancy.
For anyone paying attention to what’s going on besides the presidential campaigns and upcoming general election in November, the transgender movement has taken over much of the news and the headlines.
One has to wonder why now this has become such an important issue to Obama and his administration. Since Republicans dominate both Houses of Congress, it’s clear he can’t do anything legislatively so he’s going to do everything he can to push the LGBT agenda, among others, via executive fiat (i.e., executive orders).
What could be behind this action? Ever since the Sixties and the beginning of the ‘Culture of Letting it All Hang Out,’ transgenderism, gay marriage and all of the other issues of their agenda, is the culmination of liberating the self from any kind of personal restraints, most notably sexual ones. Liberals have a clever way of inverting morality and taboos so that they become culturally accepted. They’ve dressed them up in the language of civil rights and personal freedom so that anyone who opposes their agenda can immediately be branded a bigot. One can’t devise a more perfect way of advancing their political and social agendas.
As usual they have their enablers in the legacy media. The Charlotte Observer publisher an editorial recently Taking the Fear Out of Bathrooms where it actually suggested that people get over the fact they might have to see men’s private parts in women’s locker rooms :
“Yes, the thought of male genitalia in girls’ locker rooms – and vice versa – might be distressing to some. But the battle for equality has always been in part about overcoming discomfort – with blacks sharing facilities, with gays sharing marriage – then realizing that it was not nearly so awful as some people imagined.”
This is truly an amazing statement and clearly is advocating the destruction of a society taboo of keeping the sexes separated in zones of privacy, especially when it relates to being in the company of strangers. The possibility of opening the door to perverts and sexual assaults has been kicked wide open.
From WND.com, the following story was recently posted: THE BIG LIST OF BATHROOM ATTACKS. Many instances of men endangering girls, women:
“The perverts out there are actually targeting women and they know they get away with it.”
The American Spectator got to the root of the LGBT agenda in Obama, The Great Bathroom War of 2016, and The Cultural Revolution. If you’re not up on your Gramsci, you won’t know what’s happening”:
”Gay marriage and transgender bathrooms or public shower facilities are battlegrounds in a much bigger struggle over equality, or, more specifically, the meaning of equality. The left is redefining equality to mean sameness. This redefinition process also can be seen at work in delegitimizing income inequality whether equitable (merited) or not (privileged).”
Finally, with same-sex marriage now settled law and the transgender bathroom edict issued, the LGBT movement is not letting up. Polyamory will most likely be the next area to target for societal acceptance. It always starts small but grows incrementally. Here is an article that the Drudge Report posted: Inside New York’s polyamorous community headed by a real estate mogul who hosts open sexuality parties in his $12million converted church dubbed the ‘Taj Maharlem’:
“They are part of a polyamorous community who frequent swingers and open sexuality parties in the city.”
Everything that was once underground seems to eventually make its way into mainstream society. Pornography may be the best example. Once totally rejected by American society, it is a multi-billion dollar industry. It’s influence has resulted in the pornification of popular culture. One needs to look no further than any televised music awards show where performers show more skin with every passing year, especially females, revealing as much of their bare breasts is de rigueur while bumping and grinding as they sing that’s clearly sexual in nature. Their outfits are not much more than colorful bras and panties.
Liberalism has always been about the liberation of the self and removing any restraints, primarily moral, that get in the way. By relying on the State to lead the way, it is ceding guarantors of its freedom to an entity that only grows in its authority over individual behavior. And when the State decides the morality of an issue through legal means, those that stand opposed to it on principle will inevitably be criminalized. This is how so-called self-liberation and imposing equality becomes inverted into totalitarianism.
