Although these new feminismsdraw upon a wide variety of influences, they reflect a common interest in the issue of differenceand, in particular, the desire to apply difference to women and not merely to the relationshipbetween men and women.

Moore "has every right to issue administrative orders when the court system seems to be in chaos."
For many religious citizens, political authority is subservient to—and perhaps even derived from—divine authority, and therefore they see their religious commitments as taking precedence over their civic ones. Marxists believe that if the working class makes itself the ruling class and destroys the basis for class society (private property, or what Marx called "Bourgeois Property"), there will be a " classless society ." It is mechanically impossible to criticize those in power publicly; dissenters are exiled or driven underground.
Although the left gained ground throughout the 1940s and 1950s, the right maintained electoral clout by blocking efforts to bring congressional representation into line with new demographic trends.

The first political ideology that I will discuss is liberalism. Postmaterialism assumes that conditions of material scarcity breed egoistical and acquisitive values, meaning that politics is dominated by economic issues (who gets what). The earliest liberaljustification for democracy was based on consent, and the idea that citizens must have a meansof protecting themselves from the encroachments of government.

However, he argued that theattempt to uncover objective truth need not be abandoned altogether. In those circumstances, resurgent nationalism once again took the form of Islamicfundamentalism.
