Interviews with Scott Yenor
about The Recovery of Family Life
“Why is the family so important? And is the family of any particular significance in a democratic republic like our own?” asks Nino Scalia. And Scalia says, “Tell us about” the sexual “revolution. What is it a revolt against? And what is this revolution rolling towards? You call it a “rolling revolution.” Scot Yenor responds.
“There are great human goods that the sexual revolution...seeks to undermine...and the greatest of those goods is love. Love implies that a person will be dependent on another person…[Whereas] feminism, sexual liberation really aim at achieving individual autonomy or individual independence,” explains Scott Yenor.
