World gone mad – Episode 46,554.

The liberal stereotype of the supposedly conservative 1950s entails, among other things, a time of rigidity too brittle to adapt to necessary changes and of an institutional arrogance that expected mindless conformity from a population no longer willing to conform. This actually describes our own time quite well, but not along conservative lines. You will not get dismissed from your job for being or ever having been a member of the Communist Party, but busybodies at tech companies will get you canned for voting against gay marriage.
