It seems that we are going backward in terms of what I thought were great gains in civil rights in our culture. We’re re-fighting old battles: abortion, birth control, rape, racism, sexism. How come I ask myself? Perhaps the reason we seem to go backwards is that these are major ethical issues. In order for each generation to deal with them, they have to come up again. Therefore, they can’t ever be solved the way either side wants them solved. Now is that encouraging or what?
