Suffering from...

"Exempt suffering from sexual perversion." It's interesting what the psychiatrist puts to Mr Crisp about fantasy visions of prowess and heroism. One might say, look at Elton John and his assumed middle name "Hercules!" In the 1940's homosexuality was understood as a mental illness, akin to schizophrenia and window licking, until the gay rights lobbyists had their way in the early 1970's. Now it's just one of any number of alternate lifestyles and morality, in personal and public life, is meaningless. It's easy to point the finger of blame at the nasty liberals themselves; to see all these "individual liberties" as subversive of common interest. They are. But in a society governed by Christian values, Christian morality gives way too often to hypocrisy and beneath the surface of decency pulls an undercurrent of vice. I sometimes fear, perhaps in ignorance of history, that this was the case in the United Kingdom. But homosexuality is still not as acceptable to the average man as the liberal oligarchs in Parliament would like. "Gay" is still used as a term of scorn; and such words as "poof," "pansy," and "fag" are still in common parlance, if now largely restricted to the working class. I don't like the working class anymore than you do, dear readers, but perhaps, as Winston Smith fondly hoped in Nineteen Eighty-Four, it is to them that we can turn in our liberal darkness? Perhaps it isn't too late to have all the nasty liberals rounded up and shot?
