The Sexual State: How Elite Ideologies are Destroying Lives and Why the Church Was Right All Along

(2 reviews) Write a Review
The Sexual Revolution and the breakdown of the Family have brought misery to billions. In The Sexual State Jennifer Roback Morse shows that the Sexual Revolution did not just “happen” like a force of nature. Rather, it was deliberately created by “elites,” harnessing the power of the State, allowing them to inflict three false and calamitous ideologies—contraception, divorce, and gender ideology—that have led to widespread and profound unhappiness and worse.

The ideas of the Sexual Revolution did not emerge from the lived experiences of ordinary people; the government has been imposing the morality of an out-of-touch elite class on the rest of us for decades.

The Sexual State turns the now conventional "wisdom" on its head to reveal how:
  • The Sexual Revolution is and always has been a creation of the State
  • Social issues are unified and can be understood as the outgrowth of a few simple (but gravely flawed) principles
  • Children have identity and relational rights with respect to their parents; the Sexual State denies children these rights
Socially conservative ideas and traditional Catholic morality are getting clobbered. And the dirty secret that no one wants to acknowledge (until now!) is that the progressive social elites have rigged the system. Most people don’t love abortion, or divorce, or single-parent families! Thankfully, Dr. Morse (and the Catholic Church) has the answer. It is vital that those who would change the culture understand how we got here; otherwise, the countering tactics will remain important.
In this masterful take-down of the Sexual Revolution and its promoters, Morse calls for a widespread adherence to the principles of the Church. Only then will our society recover from the misrule of “the elites” and the “managerial class.”

    Honestly written

    Posted by Madelyn on May 24th 2023

    This book has 42 pages of references. References are provided in the text as well. Very well researched, honestly written. The author doesn;t take cheap shots or use personal attacks. She attacks the issues and backs her position up with information directly from her opponents. This book is helpful for anyone looking around at the world and struggling to make sense of the outright denial of physical reality, where such notions came from, why and how they;re being perpetuated and summarizes the harm they have caused and continue to cause. The solution is not to dull the Catholic teachings but to speak them clearly, strive to live them out in your own life and little society, and encourage others to do so.
