Meaning making and application

How is the wave of conservatism in the 1980's similar and different to the conservative wave in the 2000's.

What effect will it have on the decades following the movement?

Interview someone personally or find an interview on line. How personal to the person being interviewed are these changes from the past to the future?

Can you predict a new conservative wave in the future?
