Society is changing.
Tectonic plates of social mores are rubbing together and creating
earthquakes. The ensuing chaos can be seen all around the world,
especially in the U.S.
On one side, we can break it down most simply by Liberalism vs.
Conservatism. These are the eternal spectrums of any society. Right
now, Liberalism is concerning itself with identity politics and
claiming to align itself with two ethical principles – tolerance and
compassion. These ethical principles naturally create support for
causes like climate change activism, racial and sexual equality, and
wide-open immigration policies. Whether this is wrong or right is not
the focus of this article. I’m simply pointing out what is happening.
Conservatism is currently concerned with nationalist politics and
aligning itself with two ethical principles – tradition and
independence. The focus on tradition creates a “the law is right, no
matter how you feel” framework, which then leads to a direct conflict
with policies like open immigration. Independence-focused politics
creates conflict with macro ideas like the EU, NAFTA, and the Paris
Climate Agreement. With the victory of href="/content/how-use-donald-trump-style-persuasion"> style="font-weight: bold;">Donald Trump, an aftershock is
now sweeping countries like Hungary and Poland (who were already quite
conservative) and pushing their conservatism farther to the right.
Society is now swinging to the right, toward more conservative
values. In fact, it has been for a long time. Liberalism has hit its
peak and may decline soon, as its surge from the 1960s has begun to
lose its momentum.
This is most evident in the arena of sexuality, which I believe
(through observation) to be the control point of the rest of society.
Everything seems to revolve around sex (at least that’s how I connect
And since society seems to be swinging to the right politically,
that means some big changes are going to affect our attitude toward
sexuality, which has both its pros and cons.
