The Coming End of the Culture Wars
Demographic changes in the U.S. promise to move polarizing issues such as same-sex marriage and abortion rights into the progressive mainstream. In a new report from the Center for American Progress, Ruy Texeira writes that, as younger Americans with more progressive views join the voting-age population, "tolerance and equal rights will increasingly be the ethos of the country." The report, The Coming End of the Culture Wars, argues that other demographic shifts, such as an increase in religious diversity, also will undermine social conservatism in the nation's politics.
