Nathan Harden on campus culture at Yale (and beyond)

Nathan Harden's new book "Sex and God at Yale" will be of interest to anyone who is concerned about the moral state of campus culture at colleges and universities in the US.  Here's my dust jacket endorsement:

“The ideology of sexual liberation that is the lasting legacy of ‘Me generation’ liberalism and its imbecilic doctrine of ‘if it feels good do it,’ has hardened into an orthodoxy on college campuses around the country. Not only is it uncritically embraced by many students, it is supported by a great many faculty members and abetted and even promoted in a variety of ways by academic administrators. In the spirit of the late William F. Buckley, Nathan Harden takes a hard, critical look at the prevalent sexual liberationist dogmas at Yale, exploring their damaging effects on the educational enterprise and their often tragic consequences in the lives of students.”  — Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University

Nathan Harden is a recent Yale graduate. His critique of the practices and policies of that university would apply with equal force to many other institutions, including major Catholic ones.  Can anything be done about the situation, or are decency and honor in sexual matters a lost cause for our young people?  Keep hope alive!  Get to know---and support---the Love and Fidelity Network: http://www.loveandfidelity.org/
