The Conscience of a Nation: Clinton, Sex And Politics Around The World

 
9781419610899: The Conscience of a Nation: Clinton, Sex And Politics Around The World

For more than three decades now, sex has been playing a critical role in American politics. Ted Kennedy dropped out of presidential politics in 1969 because of sex. Gary Hart and Richard Celeste dropped out of the 1988 presidential election because of sex. House Speaker-Designate Bob Livingston resigned in 1998, and House Speaker David Henderson resigned in 1903, all because of sex. Way back in 1796, Alexander Hamilton lost presidential election because of sex. For William Jefferson Clinton, it led to his impeachment. Before this, his sex scandals held him back from running for president.

Intriguingly, Americans react with extreme furor at news of sex scandals by politicians, even though they're not better than the politicians. What is the sexual morality of the American populace crying foul over politicians? When did sex fall in love with politics to trip it out of sanity? What was the press doing feeding sex to politics?

Now, for the first time, a comprehensive study is undertaken which examines:

● The morals of Nations-the elements of morality are discussed, examples cited.
● The morals of Americans-lying, stealing, infidelity, adultery, murder-for-hire, etc.
● The morals of a Politician-the dirty ways of politicians are examined.
● The character of an American president in relation to job performance.
● The place of sex in American life-discussing American sexual practices from 1948 to the present. For more than three decades now, sex has been playing a critical role in American politics.
