PREDATOR NATION: The politics of sex in post-Christian America
Sex. It's the sacred entry point for human life into this world, yet it frequently appears in the form of grotesque criminality. As such, sexual abuse has become the focal point for one of America's most sensational mega-stories over the last year.
The story – actually a never-ending torrent of reports implicating almost 100 different men since accusations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein surfaced in October – chronicles an epidemic of prominent men allegedly using their power and authority to seduce, manipulate, bribe, bamboozle, intimidate, coerce and physically force women into sex.
Beyond Weinstein (accused of sexual abuse by 84 different women), the alleged offenders range from entertainment icons like actors Dustin Hoffman (8 accusers) and Kevin Spacey (15 accusers), comedian Louis C.K. (5 accusers) and director/screenwriter James Toback (38 accusers) to news media big shots like CBS/PBS host Charlie Rose (8 accusers), NBC "Today" anchor Matt Lauer (7 accusers), MSNBC's Mark Halperin (12 accusers) and New York Times White House reporter Glenn Thrush (4 accusers) to U.S. Appeals Court Judge Alex Kozinski (6 accusers) to Metropolitan Opera conductor James Levine (4 accusers) to New Orleans-based TV chef John Besh (25 accusers) to – of course – politicians including Rep. John Conyers (6 accusers), Sen. Al Franken (8 accusers) and many others. Indeed, it was recently revealed that millions of taxpayer dollars have been quietly doled out to settle harassment claims against members of Congress in recent years.
Notably, the vast majority of those implicated over the last few months are on the political left, though at least one – former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore (8 accusers), a conservative Christian – narrowly lost December's Senate election because of decades-old sexual allegations against him, one involving a 14-year-old girl. And of course, multiple women have accused President Donald Trump of having committed various sexual improprieties over the years.
Most everyone agrees that using one's power and position to extort sexual favors is shameful and wrong. But beyond that point of agreement, the story gets complicated, and not just because of today's intensely politicized environment wherein one's attitude toward a particular sexual abuser often hinges on whether you agree with his politics. But also because a wide range of alleged misbehaviors are being lumped together under wildly broad terms like "sexual harassment."
For example, Juanita Broaddrick credibly accused Bill Clinton of forcible rape, a heinous crime once punishable in the U.S. by death. At the other end of the spectrum, 2006 Miss USA contestant Samantha Holvey told CNN that the pageant's then-owner, Donald Trump, "personally inspected each woman" beforehand and would "step in front of each girl and look you over from head to toe like we were just meat, we were just sexual objects, that we were not people." Unseemly, perhaps, but there's a world of difference between He raped me and He looked at me like a piece of meat.
To understand what's really happening in today's America – and WHY – we must realize this seemingly sudden epidemic of powerful men sexually abusing women and girls (and sometimes boys) is just the tiny tip of a very large iceberg.
January's issue of Whistleblower magazine, titled "PREDATOR NATION: The politics of sex in post-Christian America," not only exposes the entire iceberg – it also points the way back to moral sanity.

Whistleblower Editor David Kupelian, taking a 30,000-foot view, asks: "How did this hellish situation come about?"
"As 'PREDATOR NATION' documents," he says, "it is entirely the work of the political and cultural left. Leftists have been dreaming, scheming, preaching, protesting, demanding, litigating and legislating total sexual freedom – complete sexual anarchy, no rules whatsoever – for decades. Now that their wish has finally come true and the 'old rules' have been done away with, they're still complaining – about people crossing ethical and moral lines with regard to sex!"

Different From the Others
This issue is full of stimulating pieces on the most important (and neglected) public policy issue facing Western civilization today. Even the conservative and Christian leaders have not understood how to respond to this challenge and have often done so awkwardly and counter-productively. This shows a better way.
