Social normalization

One of the problems of current society is to normalize everything, it comes from the left and right. The normalization of racism the normalization of gay marriage are examples, I personally agree with gay marriage but what are these drives other than conformism? There is a strong desire to conform probably driven by the fear of boats and new ideas that may penetrate the host. At the same time I can understand that we want to confirm and protect society creating new power structures or solidifying power at least confirming and accepting power structures that may need building or need more acceptance. At the same time others are losing power, well we all have lost rights from terrorism laws maybe this normalization is trying to get back lost ground. Even graffiti now is nearly as boring as accounting due to its normalization but luckily not entirely. There is still some non-conformism.
