This post reflects a general personal sense - I’ve looked for no data to back up the position. It’s purely an observation and prediction based on gut. That statement is:
The current political and social climate is turning my generation towards tradition.
Being inundated with polarization while simultaneously being drawn into diametrically opposed systems of hyper-individualism and hyper-collectivism has been socially destructive. Individualism destroys meaning while collectivism destroys agency.
And a silent objection to those alternatives is appearing. A noble rebellion of orthodoxy. An orthodoxy of immutable truth and tradition to be sought through individual struggle and collective support.
A generation is falling upwards into tradition.
