(p.206) Conclusion
Red Families v. Blue Families

Family formation greatly affects election returns which parallels either traditionalist or modernist preferences. Technology, globalization, and a return to education paved the way for the blue family paradigm, and those who embraced this kind of mentality have reconstructed their family lives and flourished because of it. On the other hand, the other part of society saw these progressions as a threat to their conventional lifestyle and that the only solution is to revert to ancient pieties, forming the red family paradigm. The objective here is to acknowledge the reasoning behind these differences and treat them with respect, but not without finding a way to reach mutual goals, one of which is to secure a bright future for the next generation. Going beyond the disparities is achievable through the affirmation of such differences and then constructing the appropriate solutions for the corresponding communities.
