@Nisse_Hult The US enjoyed a brief golden age of social progress with President FDR, then it sputtered on for a while longer as Presidents JFK, LBJ, and Nixon tried to extend that legacy.

Then enter Ronald Reagan and the rise of conservatism and reactionary rhetoric, where any sort of progress was labeled "filthy communist" and abandoned in favor of pumping money into the military and the super-rich (because it all trickles down in the end!). It all sort of went downhill from there.
