Quote# 90029

Advocates of homogamy often ask how government recognition of homosexual relationships will have any impact on normal marriages. Setting aside the specific answer, which is that the recognition of homogamy has already led to the elimination of the legal terms “husband,” “wife,” “father” and “mother” in some jurisdictions, the more problematic aspect is the way a modified form of Gresham’s law can be observed to apply to modern society.

Call it Dalrock’s law. When a government officially overvalues one type of relationship and undervalues another, the undervalued relationship will decline and become less societally influential, while the overvalued relationship will become more common and more influential.

The government overvaluation of homosexuality is why 4.4 percent of the characters on U.S. television are now sexually abnormal, more than double their actual percentage of the general population. The government devaluation of marital relationships is why marriage rates have been methodically declining across the West, why birth rates have fallen to sub-replacement levels, why the economic growth rates of the 1950s are, at present, demographically impossible and why social programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are mathematically doomed.

The Romans did their best to halt both monetary and marital debasement. The Lex Iulia de Adulteriis Coercendis and the Lex Papia Poppaea laws introduced by the Emperor Augustus were both intended to strengthen marriage and raise the birthrate, and Rome survived in the West for another 467 years. Unfortunately for the West in general, and the U.S. in particular, our leaders appear determined to continue to debase marriage and reduce the birthrate, which will only speed up the ongoing process of societal decline and fall.

The Swedish words for husband, wife, father and mother are still very much used.

If what you say is true, then there would be no homosexual relationships in Serbia, Iran, Uganda (or the US for that matter), as that "type of relationship" has been undervalued for centuries there. But there are homosexuals in those three countries too, they are very well hiden though, as they want to stay alive.

What is now happening is that homosexual relationships are valued on the same level as heterosexual relationships, not higher, stupid. But you are sort of correct; when gay people are accepted, gay people will be more visible. To my knowledge about 10 percent are homosexual, so your figures about TV characters are sort of reversed, and the point is that homosexuality is NOT abnormal, but normal.

Including more people, allowing more people to marry their loved ones, is an advancement, a success, to most people, not a devaluation or a debasement. This Earth is already dangerously overpopulated; we MUST reduce the number of people or we will destroy the Earth. The infant mortality rate is diminishing in most countries; you don't need to have eight or nine children to be sure to have three or four grown-up children to take care of you when you are old anymore.

You should talk to the guy who said Rome was "Gone in a hundred years" because they tolerated homosexuality.

Just lies (and underestimating the gay people in the population by about 7%).

I know exactly what you mean! I live in Massachusetts, and since same sex marraiges have been legalized here my normal 17 year old marriage to a person of the opposite sex has become completely...

Well, completely unchanged. No different in any way. Untouched. Unaltered. Same as it ever was.

"4.4 percent of the characters on U.S. television are now sexually abnormal"

Nice stat. Reminds me of the one about how 73% of all statistics are made up

Pseudo-intellectual bollocks.

By the way, the Romans generally found it acceptable to fuck anything that moved, regardless of gender, age or species, and also tortured people to death in public for entertainment. Hardly a society I'd be looking to as an example of morality.
