Unified Theory?

Fred Barnes is on to something about the nature of the political/cultural debate in America. He says that there is one reason that explains all of the activities of a particular group of partic -- I mean people. I've been under the impression that science was also interested in a "grand unified theory" that could explain gravity, the behavior of light, the nature of magnetism, and the amount of energy discernible in atomic particles. For years, I thought the reason for all things leftish, dovish, multisexual and countercultural was the eternal Sunday-morning hang-over caused by the 1960s. And I still think much can be explained by reference to that most gruesome of decades. This analysis needs some more IQ.
