What is sexually immoral?
There are lots of other countries with way weirder porn and a much more open sexuality (Asian nations and south American nations and European
I am not sure there is such a thing, at least between consenting adults, as sexually immoral.
What is sexually immoral?
How about in my own community they found a ring of sex slaves working out of a cheap hotel. They were kept there by force. How does entertainment
treat that? They make sexplotation movies and video games. That is immoral.
How about pedophilia? There is a movement in the US to legalize it. That is what MBLA has been working toward for years. There is no way that
pedophilia is not immoral, absolutely no way. How did Hollywood handle one of its own who was a know pedophile? Game him an award for his movies,
in which he molested the children behind the scenes. That is immoral.
AIDS is on the rise again. I think it is because the entertainment media glamorize having many, many partners, and many, many one night stands, and
just show the pleasure and fun, very very very rarely do they discuss the responsibility. They did for a tiny while when AIDS meant a certain death,
now that people can live with AIDS for 10-20 years sex is shown once again in a very irresponsible manner. Having multiple partners one has only had
a drink with is common in entertainment. What about pregnancy? Entertainment almost never shows that happening from a one night stand. What about
all the children on those awful TV shows whose mothers followed this lifestyle have multiple/multiple men tested as the father just to come up
negative every time (that is immoral).
What about STD's which are become harder and harder to cure, irresponsible "glamorous" sex is the cause (that is immoral).
What about the incurable STD's like genital warts that are a direct cause of cervical cancer and penile cancer (the least talked about STD)
Irresponsible sexual behavior is the cause and I don't think I have ever seen any entertainment media talk about how to avoid it responsibly (no
condoms don't protect from this one, the warts reside as high as the pubic area) Just not talking about it and saying have multiple partners, have
fun with virtual strangers, you are both adults, no one gets hurt - except when you get cervical cancer (common unfortunately) or penile cancer
(although admittedly rare for penile) That is immoral.
What about AIDS, almost never these days does entertainment talk about or show responsible homosexual sexual behavior, they just glamorize it,
consequences be damned (that is immoral) The incidence of AIDS has risen quite a bit in the past few years.
And to top it all off this lifestyle is our chief export to the world through our entertainment media which is basically the world's entertainment
media. So yes the US is morally bankrupt. We are morally bankrupt in non-sexual ways too, but that is going way way too far off topic.
Mods, sorry to be so off topic, just answering the question.
Back to the topic at hand.
The USA is not in any position to forestall a WW, our President is too weak, and we really don't have the resources (militarily, or financially) to
jump in right away.
The USA is like an old prostitute, toothless, broke, tattered, weak and carrying around an oxygen tank.
Until a WW starts without us and everyone has to look to the US to purchase military supplies the US will stay out of it.
But once the US is back on it's feet financially, the people in power will be too seduced by the "glory" of war to stay out of it and even an ocean
won't protect the US.
