Culture Wars

A culture war (or culture wars) is a struggle between two sets of conflicting cultural values.

In American usage the term culture war is used to claim that there is a conflict between those values considered traditionalist or conservative and those considered progressive or liberal. The "culture war" used in this way is sometimes traced to the 1960s and has taken various forms since then.
