THE SERVANT GENERAL
ON FAITH, FAMILY AND LIFE
“INTERSPECIES ROMANCE” – 2
More liberal idiocy. But it is all part of the liberal goal
of overturning Judeo-Christian morality. Anything goes with
sex, including gross deviancy. So now it is not just sex between
people of the same sex, but sex with a fish. And with anyone
or anything that you want, including a corpse and a robot.
liberals now want you to accept bestiality. Here’s proof
a variety of twists and turns and bestial romance, Elisa and
the fish man escape from the nasty American military establishment
into the water in which Elisa herself changes into a fish
(it is implied in the movie that she may have originally been
a fish creature herself who was found in a river with cuts
on her neck where gills would be).
film itself is, on one level, quintessential left-wing
propaganda. Released in the printemps
of Social Justice Warrior (SJW)
activism, there are all the elements that
would tantalize unwashed pink haired SJW zombie hoards: revenge
fantasies of killing a handsome, strong, and intelligent Western
man, bizarre and unnatural sexual encounters, fetishizing
of the notion of the gifted outsider or other attacks on the
military, and an overall sappy panoply of “dad issues”
and weird boyfriend fantasies.
more than these silly tidbits,
The Shape of Water is an unsettling watershed in the trans-movement.
As Brokeback Mountain and Lady Gaga’s “Born This
Way” provided the right social conditioning at just
the right time to rewire the minds of Americans regarding
marriage, so too does The Shape of Water oddly forebode a
new step in the LGBTQ+ movement: the legitimization of any
and all forms of sexual encounter.
this should not surprise us, for what John Paul II called
the “culture of death” had already given us a
warning that this would happen a long time ago.
begin in barely readable books, that is, the kind of books
that only boring professors read, and the vision of a polymorphous,
even trans-species sexuality celebrated in films like The
Shape of Water was hatched in a 1955 work by Frankfurt
School philosopher Herbert Marcuse titled, Eros and Civilization:
A Philosophical Inquiry into Freud.
work is largely an attempt to wrestle the thought of Austrian
psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud away from mid-20th century, “post-Freudian,”
conservatives and Christians who had appropriated Freudian
terminology and ideas to advocate what Marcuse derides as
“(i)dealistic morality.” Marcuse expresses his
worry in the work that Freud’s insights are being used
to help wounded individuals develop a normal love life within
the confines of marriage, and the Cultural
Marxist Marcuse wants to show the reader just
how radical Freud’s ideas can be.
that even Freud himself may have been too tame in advocating
some degree of sexual restraint, Marcuse lays out a fundamentally
Freudian anthropology in which the self “exists, as
it were, in two different dimensions, characterized by different
mental processes and principles.” The self is torn between
“the conscious,” which is “ruled by the
pleasure principle” and conscious life, which is governed
by the “reality principle” or cold hard facts
that, “you can’t always get what you want.”
at the basis of Marcuse’s thought is that the self is
stuck between wild, irrational desires for pleasure at any
cost and the limits placed on it, which, allegedly, can produce
neurosis or mental illness in a person if he or she is not
able to act on his or desires.
goal in Eros and Civilization is to provide the philosophical
justification for tearing away the restraints on sexual behavior
in order to free Western men and women from the harsh demands
of modern civilization.
all revolutionaries, Marcuse promises the savory carrot of
freedom and happiness to his readers. He advocates a “non-repressive
mode of existence” and “liberation of instinctual
needs and satisfaction which have hitherto remained tabooed
or repressed.’ Marcuse leaves his phrase here open-ended
intentionally. While his initial readers in 1955 might think
that Marcuse here is merely advocating for consensual heterosexual
sex outside of the bonds of Christian marriage, the West traditionally
has, even in its murky pagan past, forbade homosexuality,
pederasty, necrophilia, incest, bestiality, and rape.
a result, smashing the traditional
Western restraints on and taboos forbidding sexual activity
in the West will “free” any and all forms of sexual
drops hints throughout Eros and Civilization that
this radical form of total sexual
liberation is exactly his intent as he praises
the recent “discovery of infantile sexuality”
and further argues that sexuality is by nature “polymorphous-perverse,”
that is there is no natural or correct form of sex.
makes no bones about his desire to creative “qualitative
social change” with his work, that is, he wants to change
what Westerners think sexuality is through “the gradual
abolition of repression.” This gradual abolition of
repression will allow supposedly neurotic Western Christians
to realize that their bodies are not made in the image and
likeness of God with specific body parts that have specific
functions; rather, there are “unlimited erotogenic zones
of the body …”
of the Marcuse’s repeated points is that the entire
body needs to be sexualized and that sexual encounter should
not be limited to the male and female sex organs. One can
easily see here how Eros and Civilization became one of the
foundational texts of the gay rights movement, which, piggybacking
on the legalization of birth control in the 1965 Supreme Court
Case Griswold vs. Connecticut, sought to sever reproduction
from sex in the minds of the American people.
argues that in some primordial state, the human body was full
of sexualized “zones” for pleasure and he even
makes a revolting pitch for what Pope Francis himself as recently
called “coprophilia.” Quoting Freud, Marcuse argues
that the “primary content of sexuality is the ‘function
of obtaining pleasure from zones of the body…’”
and a “reactivation” of these zones will spark
a “resurgence of pregenital
polymorphous sexuality and in a decline of genital supremacy.”
to this twisted thinking, the goal of the sexual revolution
is the freeing of any and all forms of sexual experience by
allowing humans to be released from “constraint, external
and internal, physical and moral,” which will be accomplished
by reactivating “early stages of the ego” by dissolving
“the institutions of society” through a “a
subversion of culture … ”
This has always been the goal
of the sexual revolution: radical and total freedom that can
only be accomplished by destroying the Christian West by destroying
its fundamentally Christian culture.
of course, has no shape, just like love or “Eros”
in the thinking of Frankfurt School philosophers like Herbert
Marcuse and movie directors like Guillermo Del Toro. The
Shape of Water is exactly the sort of cultural destruction
that Herbert Marcuse ordered to be produced in order to attack
the West and to encourage the pursuit of forbidden desires
even, in this case, the absurd and gross love of a fish.
are in the midst of a ferocious cultural war against an enemy
that will not stop until Christianity and the West are completely
destroyed and every vice and degenerate act is normalized.
is about time we fought back.
