The drive of self-gratification is innate in our biological evolution, whether on an individual, family, or national level. But selfishness destroys stable societies based on the rights and liberties of individuals.
Niánn Emerson Chase highlights and expands upon the following quote from The URANTIA BOOK, Paper 84 § 8: Dangers of Self-Gratification.
“Let man enjoy himself; let the human race find pleasure in a thousand and one ways; let evolutionary mankind explore all forms of legitimate self-gratification, the fruits of the long upward biologic struggle.”
She also shares from Paper 82 § 1: The Mating Instinct.
“No human emotion or impulse, when unbridled and overindulged, can produce so much harm and sorrow as this powerful sex urge. Intelligent submission of this impulse to the regulations of society is the supreme test of the actuality of any civilization. Self-control, more and more self-control, is the ever-increasing demand of advancing mankind.”
