Now, are we really that different?
I would argue that we are going back in time, not forward, and this
"progressive" movement, is anything but. Just as compassionate conservatism wanted to control our lives, all of these people crave the same thing, POWER!

It has also been going on for decades, whereas these wars are briefer affairs.
I want to say that the rise in traditional values/extremism is in response to our inadvertant cultural attack on this region.
We do see the same traditional response here in America with some people not wanting to recognize women's rights, here. Of course, there has been a negative consequence to women's rights: divorce and single parent homes. Women can now earn their own way and so are not as economically tied to the husband for survival.

More depressing is all the single parent homes. A very good friend of mine married her college sweetheart 15 years ago and they are a very religious family. They had three daughters, now aged 12, 9, 7. The husband went to Swanee (sp?), a religious school, for his freaking doctor of divinity. While there he decided he was going to sleep with his best friends wife and after, that they were going to get married. So he divorced his wife and she is now raising the kids on her own.
Divorce is a disease and kids are growing up stunted by the single parent homes. Even in a 2 parent home, both parents work and send the kids to day-care.
And by extension on what you said, men don't have to put up with women's ****.
