Abstract:

This thesis examines changing cultural values in America and their impact on American institutions. The problem of reverse discrimination, resulting from the impact of these social forces, and the problem of discrimination towards minorities and women are analyzed in their historical and contemporary perspectives. These problems are shown to be generating highly disruptive forces in society with the potential of adversely affecting the military, government, business, and educational institutions if corrective action is not taken. It is concluded that, in its attempt to promote equality of opportunity the Federal Government--through its affirmative action programs--is in fact promoting equality of results and thereby creating the problem of reverse discrimination.
