A (perhaps) conservative critique of cultural liberalism :
I don't agree with this, but it's worth noting because I see how someone might agree with it.
Too much economic liberalism creates great inequalities of wealth and power which destroys social fabric.
BUT do the cultural conservatives have a point that there's an equivalent problem with an excess of cultural liberalism?
The huge increase in cultural possibilities that the market offers creates a massive cultural inequality / differences in taste values etc.
If it's valid to criticise economic liberalism for unleashing social strife through economic inequality, why isn't it valid to blame cultural liberalism and the excess of possibilities for unleashing social strife through cultural inequality?

My response :
They are fighting over control of "the dominant narrative / world-view" at a time when increasing no. of people and media channels (especially online) makes a single dominant world-view impossible to maintain. Part of the frustration is seeing the prize dissolve in front of you.
