The era of Reagan conservatism that challenged many of the habits and beliefs developed in the sixties; forget the hippies in fields of flowers, and shift the mindset to corporate goons on Wall Street. Shift the burning of bras in streets, to the return of classic American values.

The Edict of Milan ceased the persecution of Christians in the Roman empire which greatly increased the number of roman Christians (Andrews 1).

As companies continued to downsize their workforces, shifter production overseas, and took advantage of new technologies such as satellite communications, they became more profitable.
