What do you think has caused this?
Giving women the right to vote.
IT was a great idea, but once the 'soap opera' era became a huge avocation for millions of women, who didn't as yet have to go out an earn a living, the die was cast.
Didn't take too long for the 'forward thinking' liberals to grasp the idea that millions of votes were out there to be harvested based on emotion and 'good intentions.'
It has gotten worse ever since, with the most idiotic nonsense put forward - all with good intentions - that did nothing but debase society.
Political correctness became a powerful weapon which the liberals used to further dampen any opposition to the ongoing assault on once universal values and a strong moral culture.
None of this would have happened if women had never gotten the right to vote.
