I am a nonrecovering cinephile with a huge addiction to silent movies and pre-code movies from the 30s. through this, it is stunning to watch the culture change of America, before and after the Great War going into the Jazz Age. A similar shift took place from the late 50s through the 70s.

This gave rise to the Culture War, in all its variations. This in turn gave a huge political boost economic right via Nixon and Reagan.

The Culture War is over. We won. Never mind that there are a few Josey Wales types heading to Texas. We won. The culture warriors aren't worth a bucket of cold spit to the GOP - except maybe to help them hold on to Mississippi and Alabama.

So, the two parties are now defined by the emerging, post-depression 21st Century Great Class War. They have the money. We have the votes.

In 2016, after the depression, with full employment and a shrinking budget deficit, we will run a pink woman (not brown man) for president.

The Culture War will end with a version of the Battle of the Little Bighorn.
