Surge Summary: The scandal involving New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is another example of what the sexual revolution has done to modern society.
by The Ruth Institute
“New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is accused of creating a ‘toxic workplace.’ But actually, the Sexual Revolution created the ‘toxic workplace.’ The Sexual Revolution, in effect, issued hunting licenses to predators,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “This poisonous ideology created a sense of entitlement among powerful men. They have internalized the Revolutionary message that they are entitled to have sex as often as they choose, with whomever they choose.”
The New York Attorney General’s office issued a 165-page report [in early August] charging that the governor “engaged in conduct constituting sexual harassment.” The report also concluded that the governor’s office “contributed to the conditions that allowed sexual harassment to occur and persist.”
“In other words,” Morse said, “the harassment was systematic. The governor’s office enabled his misconduct.”
Morse continued, “The Sexual Revolution has given us a generation of addicts. How else can you describe Cuomo’s behavior? ‘Compulsive’ seems too mild a term. Any attractive woman who came within his reach was fair game.
“But it was the Sexual Revolution that led to a climate where so many powerful men are caught up in scandal,” Morse remarked. “This toxic ideology led to a culture where powerful men can’t keep their hands to themselves.”
Numerous politicians and entertainers have been credibly charged with harassment or even assault. President Bill Clinton was impeached for an affair with an intern who was decades his junior. Former U.S. Senator Al Franken was forced to resign from Congress. Harvey Weinstein fell from the pinnacle of Hollywood’s powerful elite to convicted sex offender.
Morse continued, “Pornography also plays a role in this problem of widespread sexual harassment and assault. The Sexual Revolution gave us the pornography-saturated culture in which we live today. A regular porn theme is that any woman is ready to have sex at any time with men she barely knows.
“The Andrew Cuomo scandal will probably end with the governor’s resignation or impeachment, and possibly his arrest on criminal charges,” Morse said. [Editor: The Governor has since resigned from office.] “Before he disappears into the dustbin of history, we must confront the Sexual Revolution. The idea that sex is an entitlement will continue to create predators like Andrew Cuomo, regardless of what happens to the New York governor.”
