But changes unleashed in the 1960s pitted Americans against one another politically in new and destructive ways--while economically, everyone fell behind except the wealthy.Right-wing culture warriors blamed the decline on the moral shortcomings of "other" Americans--blacks, feminists, gays, immigrants, union members --to court a fearful white working and middle class base with ever more bitter "us" vs. "them" politics. Liberals tried but.
