One of the most destructive weapons cultural Marxists deployed against the Catholic West is the proliferation and normalization of pornography.
Before the advent of the internet, porn was dispersed in shady movie theaters and bookshops.
There were, however, efforts to normalize it going back to 1953 when Hugh Hefner first published Playboy. The addition of news stories and nonfiction stories by established writers was a way to make pornography accepted by a generation of men who fought and suffered in WWII.
Soon after, Hollywood started to make sexuality more overt. What had previously been couched with innuendo gave place to open nudity and sexuality by the late 1960s.
Dirty movie theaters and book stores popped up across the United States, often in the seedy parts of town known for drugs and degeneracy. But the perversion of porn, while still making its way out to America’s children, was still just a trickle.
