Gilder: The Error of Sexual Liberals

“Sexual liberalism is the cause, not the solution, of the problem in the West. But the error of liberals comes not only in their fantasies of flight from work and children – not only in their illusion that full-time work and child care have declined in importance to modern society. They also deeply misunderstand what makes people happy. The pursuit of promiscuous sexual pleasures which many of them offer as an alternative to the duties of family leads chiefly to misery and despair. It is procreation that ultimately makes sex gratifying and important and it is home and family that gives resonance and meaning to life.”

– George Gilder, Men and Marriage (p. 176)
