How can it be that conservatives are so preoccupied with government imposed restraint on sexual freedom, yet at the same time they say they are for smaller government? On the other hand the free-sex proponents find themselves very much at home with the big-government crowd. Why is this?
For one, “Sexual liberty” is a narrow view of liberty and freedom, only a slice really, of an idea that ecompases much more. A young man with an entrepreneurial spirit wanting to start a business of his own will learn very quickly that liberty outside of free-for-all sex is an illusion as he encounters an army of unfeeling and uncaring bureaucrats armed to the teeth with volumes upon volumes of regulations that they intend to enforce.
But we as a people have grown use to a government that has taken on the persona of Mother. ”Don’t do that little Johnny, you might fall!” ”Make sure you eat your organic vegetables little Susie… so you can be a healthy girl”. ”Make sure you wash your hands… Hold onto that handrail… Put your seatbelt on… Don’t spray the glass cleaner in your eyes…” and on and on ad vomitous!
We all must admit that the thoughts of no Mama-government to hold our hands and halt traffic for us evokes a certain amount of insecurity. There is a comfort in Mother’s mandate that we stay on her side of the street where she can keep an eye on us, and us out of trouble; all the while consoling us that we can self-gratify sexually as we wish, under her skirt.
But true liberty calls from across the street. She beckons the young man come to the neighborhood of uncertainty where she resides, wherein he might discover his destiny, reach his potential and outside of which he will never be anything but his Mama’s little government boy.
