What the heck is that supposed to mean?

In a post at the Conservative Reader about Sarah Palin's teenage daughter's pregnancy there is this sentence...

It’s unfortunate that the society that has been largely built over the last 50 years on the social philosophy of the extreme Left makes it so difficult for parents to keep their children from engaging in activities that lead to pregnancy.
What the heck is that supposed to mean?

The left wants to make sure teenagers are educated to make smart decisions and have the protection they need to do so. I don't believe education is extreme.

Apparently education is extreme when it doesn't preach abstinence only.

Sorry the statement in my post was a unclear. The problem is, society has been gradually promoting a model of promiscuity, pushing sexuality in entertainment, teaching children about their sexuality at an earlier and earlier age, and encouraging their engagement in sexual activities by providing condoms and abortion "services" through the schools. Granted, parents have a responsibility to raise and teach their children their moral values (including abstinence), but it is increasingly difficult as society and the schools contradict what they are teaching... it is often like trying to stand firm in the face of a tidal wave.
