State-imposed chaos

In our country individuals want sexual liberty. In order to achieve this, they look to the state to dismantle institutions that impose their values and constraints on the individual (marriage, religion). The state stops recognizing sex differences and the bonds created by sexual activity (as well as gamete activity). This “frees” people from those bonds but also makes them more vulnerable to manipulation from macro forces. Those constraints and bonds pushed back against the power of the state by minimizing the effect of macro forces.

As sexual liberty increases, I see more and more state-imposed chaos. Here is a good example: very poor communities, where social order has broken down dramatically and sexual liberation is in full swing due to the state’s incentives and policies. The breakdown was imposed by the state and is maintained by it. Some people call the chaos “freedom.”

But that kind of freedom doesn’t look like freedom to me. It looks like being anti-authority rather than pro-freedom. Here is something from Psalm 2 to show what I mean (emphasis added):

Why do the nations conspire, and the peoples plot in vain?

The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and his anointed, saying,

“Let us burst their bonds asunder, and cast their cords from us.” 

He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision.

It is a quantifiable fact that sexual liberation has expanded the power and scope of the state, yet few people who claim to be liberty-lovers speak out against it. This is because they are positively for it. “Sexual liberation” and “limited government” are diametrically opposed.

I'm an adult child of divorce, having been raised in multiple divorce/remarriage situations. I'm writing in order to shed light on the problems of divorce from the perspective of the child. I will also discuss problems with other non-triad family structures, since there is a lot of overlap. People often think that better parenting skills will overcome problems in non-triad arrangements. While I agree that parenting skills are important, they cannot overcome the problems I discuss such as fractured ontology and perpetual liminality. I converted to the Catholic faith in 2012, and will discuss Catholic things from time to time as well.
