It was the 1950s that preceded the 1960s both chronologically and culturally in America's psyche. Forget about democracy. Might there be a correlation between sexual repression and attraction to terrorism? Maybe it's not freedom the Muslim world needs, but free love.H/T Larwyn
- the need to breathe
- the need to regulate homeostasis
- the need to eat
- the need to dispose of bodily wastes
If some needs are unmet, a human's physiological needs take the highest priority. As a result of the prepotency of physiological needs, an individual will deprioritize all other desires and capacities. Physiological needs can control thoughts and behaviors, and can cause people to feel sickness, pain, and discomfort.
Maslow also places sexual activity in this category, as well as bodily comfort, activity, exercise, etc. While several of these activities are important, many are not essential to survive.
When physiological needs are met, the need for safety will emerge. Safety and security rank above all other desires. These include:
- Physical security - safety from violence, delinquency, aggressions
- Security of employment
- Security of revenues and resources
- Moral and physiological security
- Family security
- Security of health
- Security of personal property against crime
A properly-functioning society tends to provide a degree of security to its members. Sometimes the desire for safety outweighs the requirement to satisfy physiological needs completely.
"This weekly programme," Qotb says, "is the first ever to discuss the issue of sexual education and culture in Egypt and the Arab world. It is not a talk show, but a scientific programme operating within the ethical and Sharia frameworks." It was shocking to some viewers, she concedes, but some of the viewers' phone calls were even more shocking. A diffident caller, pointing out that in Islam "the bedroom is as a grave" -- no information should come out of it -- took heart when Qotb told her that, in "righting a wrong" with good intentions, the programme was in fact heeding God's call.
