Social hygiene

The social or mental hygiene movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries was an attempt by Progressive-era reformers to control venereal disease, regulate prostitution and vice, and disseminate sexual education through the use of scientific research methods and modern media techniques. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_hygiene [Nov 2005]

Mental hygiene

"Sex hygiene" is contrasted with "false modesty" in this frontispiece to an early 20th century book.

Left-hand path: Ignorance, lust, obscenity, disease, poverty, defective children, lunacy and senility lead to misery.

Right-hand path: Education, love, health, sanity, energy, temperance, modesty, ambition, comfort, morality and normalcy lead to happiness.

The terms Left-Hand Path and Right-Hand Path refer to a postulated dichotomy between two distinct types of religion. The exact meaning of the terms has varied over time; the most modern usage regards religions which focus upon the worship of one or more deities and the observance of strict moral codes as belonging to the Right-Hand Path, while religions which value the advancement of the self over other goals are considered to belong to the Left-Hand Path. This usage of the terms is invoked almost exclusively by proponents of the Left-Hand Path; opponents (almost always of religions described as "Right-Hand Path") either argue that this is a means of dividing religions, is a mislabeled or false dichotomy, or, that much of what is called "left hand" is in actuality satanism, or "black magic". --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left-Hand_Path_and_Right-Hand_Path [Feb 2006]
