Conservatives constantly decry the eroding moral fabric of America, but then simultaneously claim that America and Americans are exceptional which is why we are unique in our enjoyment of the "land of the free and home of the brave." They think half the community has failed to live up to this standard, which is why we are verging on more takers than makers, and we need to correct this if the American dream is to persist. That many on the right see things as worse than they were in years past, indicates the incredible amount of white privilege that has been present in this country for a very long time. White people feel their place threatened, just as they did in the 60's and 70's--when the old social order was upset.
