Marcuse’s Eros and Civilization

If people rely on the ideas of Marx, and his intellectual descendants, the Frankfurt School, on love and relationship to make their domestic life a success, most homes will become a place as sordid as a divorce court. They leftists are utopians; they have little awareness of the psychology of real human beings. (This post is related to my reading of Herbert Marcuse’s Eros and Civilization (1955) which is a frankly utopian book, as it proposes a new future where the population is ensnared with free love and strange sexual positions to prevent outburst of rebellions and maintain social harmony.)
