In The Boudoir With The Man

I've never understood the fuss about gay marriage, civil unions, traditional marriage. Probably because I've never understood The State's infatuation with an individual's sexual proclivities. Well, actually, that's a lie. Take a legislator, a pimp for hire, a person devoid of any internal mechanism for true self-actualization, and plop him in a chamber for hours on end, listening to the narcotic dronings of his colleagues. Of course his mind will wander to sex. And more importantly, how he can insinuate some control over others' sexual lives. Because control is all a politician has. And sexual control is the bestus control anyone can have. As my closet of horrors will attest.

There is certainly a lot to be said for the 3,000 years of public policy that surrounds marriage as we know it, and the idea of one man, one woman. It stabilized society, prevented murders, nurtured furtherance of society through conforming childbirth. It also protected the innocent from the real injury of bigamy, and helped institutionalize the proper administration of trusts and estates. It also allowed the state to at least attempt to control the spread of venereal and genetic diseases.

Pretty much every civilization has always respected one man-one woman for the stability it brings to society. Hottentots, Yanomami, Inuits, traditional marriage has been the stabilizer bar that keeps the vehicle of society from running into the ditch.

We, of course, don't need these safeguards now. Our childbearing demographics already show a civilization in decline across the Western World. Gay marriage won't affect that one way or the other.

The simple fact is, at least in America, the federal government abdicated its role as Lord Protector of marriage when Lyndon Johnson foisted the Great Society welfare regime upon us. No longer was illegitimacy scorned, it was rewarded. In fact, marriage, and even cohabitation, was punished by the government. Ruinous lifestyles were monetarily rewarded. One might say "unintended consequences, and what a shame." I say if those outcomes were a surprise to you, then you are a fucking retard.

LBJ and his Democratic Congress drove a great sharp stake into the heart of traditional marriage in 1965. It is what it is, now. I would suggest we enjoy the diversity, but Section 8 rowhouse after rowhouse of multigenerational mutt-breeding with no father figures isn't really diverse, is it?

All this is by way of saying government shouldn't be in the marriage business in the first place. They fuck up everything they touch. Here's a thought: what if all relationships were strictly contractual? As far as I can tell, two people can already contractually obligate and donate to each other as they see fit anyhow, without regard to government sanction. Ever hear of a will and testament? An insurance beneficiary?

Actually, the only thing a private contract cannot bequeath, as far as I can tell, are survivor benefits. Social Security survivor benefits. And that won't matter in a few years anyway, as that corrupted system is on more life support than a found drowned baby at the beach. And let's face it: survivor benefits are an ancient concept, based on mother staying home to mind the chirren while daddy got his head whacked off by a cherry picker working a highway gang. Casting the government out of the marriage racket will merely reaffirm our belief the bitch should have been pulling her own weight in salary in the first place.

Verily, the government killed marriage 45 years ago, now they must get out of the way. You want 4 wives? 5 husbands? Have at it. Just don't expect me to feel your pain when it all goes awry. Gay? Do you have any idea how repulsive the concept of peering into your bedroom is to me? Do you have any idea how little I care about the deployment of your genitals? Only you are fixated on that. Not me.

The usual caveats apply, of course. As my father The Senator might have said, kids and animals ain't got a mind of their own, boy. Of course he probably would have used terms like In Compost I find Mentos, or something. Anything else goes. Once a society, a civilization, abandons their moral perimeters, resistance is futile.

There really was a time in every civilization when adherence to one man-one woman was vitally important. It was how people functioned without killing each other, and provided a nurturing environment for the offspring.

Now it takes a village to flashmob a bath house, and I could care less.

Or, if you have a little wisdom, you just might bind together in that traditional familial unit to ensure the common welfare and mutual defense of all, and you just might get feisty when the cocksuckers come around wanting a piece of your action.

Vman you are preachin' to the front pews.
We are waaay past reclaiming America.
The only hope left is when the checks stop coming,
we have enough ammo to stop it.

Top-shelf writing, Vman. Top-shelf thinking,too.

And all the brave talk about hunkering down? If we didn't defend marriage in the green of our growth, how will we now, in the dust-bowl of depravity?

Yep. A hard rain's gonna fall.

Very well said. One of my favorite authors is Thomas Sowell; there is a similarity in brevity and clarity to your writing, though yours has the depravity thrown in for good measure. You should assemble an anthology of essays on your observations of society.

Stumbled on your blog through AD. Wonderful writing here, so clean and pinprick sharp. And how it makes me sad, sad.

Ah yes, the traditional Biblical view of marriage:
A man, his 700 wives, his 300 concubines and all his female slaves.

Got to get back to that.

Can we please take it as Q.E.D.'d that there are no such things as unintended consequences? Consequences eventuate from actions. If you didn't intend the consequences, you shoonta done the action. And, no, you don't get to use it as an excuse, as if being a retard qualifies as diminished capacity. OK, well, it does. But then, see "you shoonta" above.

This is somewhat backwards.

Marriage is also a business contract between parties. Contracts are subject to state regulation and approval, so some state intervention is unavoidable. Whether the state needs to participate in the actual rite of agreement is another matter. But at least some sort of registration or filing might be useful. Barring that, an actual written contract, notarized, with copies to both parties should be the minimum.

Churches et al., however, should not be in the business of overseeing the business deal between the parties. Priest, ministers, rabbis, imams, et al., should only perform a rite that validates the marriage in the sight of the congregation. They should not issue, witness or sign any sort of marriage license.

True separation of church and state.

Yes, but they were the first institutions before we had a true government here in the U.S. and so their oversight and record-keeping was depended upon for continuity. It's a holdover, but I don't think it should continue, either.

I say let the whole damn euro house of cards collapse. Let everyone figure it out after the fact. One thing has become clear to me that is know one is willing to change there ways to save themselves, all we ever hear is please send money as our 45 year old retirees need to pay for their annual vacations. All my life I heard how backward the west was with their measly two weeks vacation per year, and how the Europeans get six weeks per year well now they are screwed. so be it. Or, if you have a little wisdom, you just might bind together in that traditional familial unit to ensure the common welfare and mutual defense of all, and you just might get feisty when the cocksuckers come around wanting a piece of your action.

Well, my new job effectively has forced just such a fast onto me. In fact, just surviving has a way of refocusing one's priorities down to work, eat, sleep. What little is left over is spent here and at One Cosmos.
