Those currently in the political sphere, the media sphere, the 'hollywood' sphere, are currently the ones with the means and voice to name the tune.
Their current top ten 'tunes' are:
1. Abortion is ok
2. Gay marriage is ok - Both Genders: Living together without benefit of marriage is ok
3. Laws can be cherry picked on which ones to follow, i.e. federal and state illegal immigration laws are NOT to be followed or else you are a racist bigot naughty pants and no soup for you!
4. Using drugs is sort of ok, as long as it's 'only' marijuana or other 'recreational drugs'
5. Judging is bad
6. Being rich and successful is bad (there's currently 41 billionaires that have accepted a challenge to give 1/2 of their wealth away to charity! I need to give them my digits! LOL!) No owning gold is allowed either!
7. Competition is frowned upon. Everyone gets a trophy. Self-esteem at all costs.
8. Grading papers or putting grades on report cards is frowned upon
9. Christian and Jewish religions are 'hateful'. Islam/moslem/other Eastern religions are A-OK and not to be judged for any of their tenets or beliefs, no matter what, including 'honor killings', wife beating, etc.
10. Owning any kind of firearm, even your grandaddy's air pump bibi gun, is reason enough to be 'kicked off the island'.
No one wants to be kicked off the island, laughed at, banished, looked down upon, or ignored. so following the above 'rules' allows one admittance to a plethora of 'different clubs'.
