I guess one issue I might have here is the use of the term “progressive.” I feel that its use here is very nebulous and imprecise. For example, you said that the news media have been generally progressive, but they seem to have problems with progressive political candidates and are generally very corporatist. That’s not consistent with progressive values.
In fact, progressivism does not really seem germaine to some of these issues, liking parenting. I don’t know if I could differentiate progressive parenting from non-progressive parenting.
In spite of that, I think you are onto something here and noticing some real trends, so good work.
