Humanist Jews Broke with the Traditions of the Grandfathers

In 1960, two movies, not made for money, sought to negatively influence the public opinion of Christianity. These movies, “Inherit the Wind” and “Elmer Gantry,” going hand-in-hand with the counter cultural movements of the 60s, led the conservative movement to go ‘underground’. This ultimately gave rise to a conservative movement’s comeback in the late 1970s. The flagships of the conservative movement that broke the silence of the underground were the magazines The Freeman and National Review. Anti-communism sentiment gave rise to pro-conservative economics that are still present in America today.

Be sure to check out Michael Medved’s Book Hollywood Versus America, 2011.

Other books mentioned were Barry Goldwater’s Conscience of a Conservative, 1960.
