I think that is why we generally feel that society is slipping with each generation. Societal norms seem to go from confined to liberal (for lack of better words) as time passes. Until some time when society goes to hell in a hand basket (so to speak). Then we go back to a confined society and start over again.

You see this pattern again and again from Egypt until current civilization - which is our only framework of written accounts of humans.

That is my humble thoughts.
You're describing how society interprets morality... not whether objective morality exists. Yes, societal interpretation of morality changes. The question is whether this change is progressive (towards a standard), or just arbitrarily changing.

I think you both are looking at things from a limited number of variable point of view.
Einstein once said he doesn't know if WWWIII will hapapen but WWIV will be fought with
sticks and rocks. I am not sure if that is what you're refering to as for starting over
again.
I don't think the world changes for the sake of it. There has to be a catalyst. In the
80's there were computer and that has changed the world more than any single ideology.
We are beginning to see the affect of those changes now. The juries are still out
whether those changes are good or bad. Over and over again, ideology don't work very well.
At the end, practicality always win because it's good for the lives of people.
If computers end up helping finding a cure for cancer then it will continue.
But if computers end up getting more people sitting around doing nothing but posting
stuffs on facebook then up to a point such trend will be reversed but nobody knows
how that will happen only that I know it's not a sustainable trend. To much energy
is wasted just sitting around doing nothing.
"Progressive" is a catch word being used as a "propaganda" purpose and if nothing
good will come of it then it will be reversed and again I don't know exactly how that will happen.
Again if "progressive" is nothing more than getting more people signing up for facebook
then I am not sure what's that will be good for.
