Malcolm Muggeridge on Sex and Materialism.

14 April 2012

“Sex is the ersatz or substitute religion of the 20th Century”

“The orgasm has replaced the cross as the focus of longing and fulfillment”

“Sex is the mysticism of materialism and the only possible religion in a materialistic society.”

“The most terrible thing about materialism, even more terrible than its proneness to violence, is its boredom, from which sex, alcohol, drugs, all devices for putting out the accusing light of reason and suppressing the unrealizable aspirations of love, offer a prospect of deliverance.”

- Malcolm Muggeridge
