How To Destroy A Culture in 5 Easy Steps...please comment..

I found an interesting article entitled How To Destroy A Culture In 5 Easy Steps.

From the article:

In his book The Future of Marriage, David Blankenhorn, a liberal, gay-rights-supporting Democrat...offers this sociological principle: “People who professionally dislike marriage almost always favor gay marriage....Ideas that have long been used to attack marriage are now commonly used to support same-sex marriage.”

Step #1: From Unthinkable to Radical;

Step #2: From Radical to Acceptable;

Step #3: From Acceptable to Sensible;

Step #4: From Sensible to Popular;

Step #5: From Popular to Policy

The article is found at: http://www.firstthings.com/onthesquare/2011/06/how-to-destroy-a-culture-in-5-easy-steps so you can read the whole thing.  It is very insightful and in reading the entire article you can evaluate it more thoroughly and therefor give a more thorough opinion.

Please share your thoughts.  Thanks!

  • Isn't that the way it always works. You take an idea, present it, endure the gasp, continue to expose it until people are complacent, continue to expose it, people begin to accept until it becomes a movement and then a policy. Sociology 101 - it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out. It isn't BS or crap. It is how it works.

  • So what your saying is a culture is destroyed when people have ideas and act upon them?

    Hmmm...

    Not sure how the barf about marriage and anti-marriage was supposed to relate to the rest of it but...IDK...great copy and paste job?
