Summary
What is the cause of the moral revolution? Other questions raised by Max Lerner and the five Brandeis students during this program are: what is the operative code of today; are we still a Puritan society; is the moral revolution of today merely discussion over such topics as the Kinsey Report; do the newspapers depict only a small percentage of the population, thus making the situation worse than it really is; how are the young people responding to the pressures in our society; has the idea of conformity to peers made the young people more permissive; were the old codes too repressive; was the older generation as pure as they claim to be; and are we succeeding in shaping a challenging code to replace the now degenerating operative one?
