Sociologists getting more moderate?

A recent New York Times article chronicled the changing politics of academics. It turns out that the senior professors, those who went through the 1960s, are more liberal than younger professors. As such, as the senior professors retire, the academia is becoming more moderate (or, perhaps more accurately, slightly less liberal).

This is something that I've noticed, that those who went through the 1960s are different than those of us who didn't.

Makes me wonder what variation of this theme will be written in 20 years when my cohort is ready to retire.

Thanks David for the link.
