5.0 out of 5 stars sex as political control, 23 Oct 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Libido Dominandi: Sexual Liberation and Political Control (Paperback)
This book is from a Catholic viewpoint. The thesis is that liberating people from sexual restraint has become a form of political control. The case of Kinsey as one example is simply unbelievable - how one can document and have photographic evidence of sexual activity is simply beyond words and call it science. He simply goes through all the names - mainly psychologists and truthly no one comes out too good. The point I gained from the book was if one prays to God and believes in God one doesn't get into the problems the people Jones describes in the book - namely sexual promiscuity and marriage infidelity. You may get infuriated reading this book, but it's compulsive reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexual liberation and the Endarkenment, 12 Jan 2010

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Libido Dominandi: Sexual Liberation and Political Control (Paperback)
Five hundred years ago, most people in the Europe lived according to the moral codes of Christianity. Today most Westerners believe that the purpose of life is the satisfaction of appetites, including sexual appetites. In this book Dr Jones looks at this profound change, particularly with respect to sexual appetites. Dr Jones has two countervailing themes. First sexual liberation is used by the powerful as a form of social control; thus for example the WASP ruling class of East Coast America promoted the legalisation of contraception in the 1960s to reduce the Catholic birth rate, fearing that America would become a Catholic country. The second theme is that a society whose religion is the satisfaction of appetites tends to anarchy. In order to avoid anarchy governments create complex methods of social control through education, the mass media, advertising and psychology.

In this fascinating book Dr Jones chronicles leading figures of the endarkenment from the French Revolution to Bill Clinton's America.

The following amongst others receive Dr Jones' withering treatment: the Marquis de Sade, Mary Wollstonecraft, Shelley, Watson founder of behavioural psychology, Freud, Reich, Kinsey, Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow.

This book provides insight into the brutal and totalitarian societies which have developed in the West since 1960.

Did you know the encounter/sensitivity group, as developed by Maslow and Rogers, was first created by the CIA's psychological warfare department, as a form of social control? Dr Jones is the leading commentator of the degeneration of the West since 1960. Not a light read, but a profound read.
