I was thinking the other day and realized that, on a social spectrum, the US population has a tendency to swing between liberal and conservative. For example, late 19th century (VERY conservative, sociologically speaking) to the 1920's (pretty liberal, remember the flappers?) back to conservative (WW2) then liberal (the 40's, when everyone cheered organized crime). Then the conservative 1950's (every woman stayed home) to the 60's and 70's (hippies), etc. etc. So now we're entering a liberal phase (save the planet, save the world) - do you think we'll swing back in another ten years or so?Answer Question

Even though I am liberal I do agree that in the next decade things are bound to become more conservative. The balance between the two is what keeps us going.
