The censure of “lust” continues to our day, because lust is ubiquitous to all men and women, and by censuring and condemning it, one may pretend to be morally righteous (denial of sexual lust results in sexual possessiveness), while being financially greedy and exploitative of others is something that is swept under the rug. The censure against lust is well illustrated by the fact that one will be hard put to discover on Google the story (perhaps apocryphal) of Mary Nightingale (or was it Mary Seacole), who offered their breasts to one or more wounded soldier at the hospitals they served as nurses. Surely one will never discover the hush-hush story of a Nursing Home Aide fondling genitals of Seniors in order to bring home a better wage.
It was through a force majeure 560 years before Bunyan’s “Pilgrim’s Progress” that the early leaders of proto-urban communities the world over, lost control to individuals who presumed that gathering in communities was as natural to humankind as it was for bees and ants to spontaneously hive into new communities.
