How will the wheel turn?

Moral relativism in the guise of sexual autonomy today tends to be the unquestioned assumption of my generation in the same way that amoral economic liberalism was made out to be the unquestioned assumption of the mid-19th century in America. As the Russian Revolution and American Progressives replaced political liberty and democratic methodology with economic intervention and utopian schemes, so I predict that we will see another revolution in somewhere in the West in the next few decades which will recast both the non-economic and sexual liberalism of 1917 and 1968 in terms of some new synthesis which sharply appropriates human sexuality and reproduction along more communitarian and less individualistic lines, either in response to or in transmutation/appropriation of the ideologies of gay rights and radical feminism.
