FIFTY SHADES OF GREY

Book review time! I finished reading Fifty Shades of Grey yesterday morning.
The book is a trilogy. The three volumes fast moving. The author is a woman. E. L. James. I specify her sex since from my perspective it is a woman’s book written by a woman.
Fifty Shades is #1 on the New York Times best seller list. It is being read world wide. Book stores keep running out.
Fifty Shades is a love novel. Again, written by a woman for women. Not generally the type of book men read. Too lovey dovey.
My sense is the book is going to raise sex to another level.

And, yet for all the development of “technical knowledge”, the civil society has more failings in all of the moral values. Just drive down the road and crazies endanger lives by poor driving technique despite having far better hardware. So to, divorce is rampant, the children are deprived, and the takers far outweigh the makers. Pop star Taylor Swift is uniquely notable because she doesn’t do slut publicly; what she does privately is her own business. Listen to any “comedian” and they’d make a Drill Sargent blush. Manhood has been reduced to a metrosexual homosexual who’s no longer needed. Womanhood has been reduced to whiny trivial want-it-all given to her. A la Sandra Flock who wants her birth control paid for by others. Our pioneer ancestors would be ashamed. Sadly, I don’t know how to fix it. So maybe we just watch it all spin crash and burn like all the empires before us. A lot of folks are going to get hurt along the way. We’ve come a long way from “You are what you produce.” A long long way.
