Question and answer
Q: Both ends of the American political spectrum changed significantly in the 1970s and 1980s. Describe these changes, and discuss how they shaped contemporary American politics.
A: At the other end of the ideological spectrum on social issues are the groups that set in motion the changes in the 1960s and 1970s which the New Right finds so distasteful: the remnants of the "New Left." The 1960s and early 1970s were characterized [ by a wave of new political movements, each of which raised fundamental challenges to historical modes of thinking and each of which generated
political organizations that outlived the faddishness of times. The first of these was the civil rights movement, which ultimately not only generated new black civil rights organizations but also contributed to the climate in which Black Power, Hispanic, and other ethnic identity organizations emerged. On the heels of the civil rights movement came the peace movement, questing to end the Vietnam War and the arms race, and to redefine the U.S. role in the world. The coming of the 1970s saw the emergence of the ecology movement, which sought to protect the environment from the ravages of twentieth century technological development. Gathering momentum throughout this period but emerging with greatest force in the early 1970s was the women's movement, which, following the example of the civil rights movement, sought a political and ideological redefinition of the position of women in society. In the footsteps of the civil rights and women's movements came the organization of gay groups that further expanded the redefinition of social roles. ]
