What would you say is the dominant culture?

Here's Mad Priest's "Thought for the day". I have to say I agree with him:

Liberals and progressives in the Church are constantly being accused by reactionaries and conservatives of being too willing to embrace modern culture. But when you think about it the main cultural trends at this moment in time are individualism, rampant capitalism and invading other countries, all of which are usually supported and adhered to by conservatives. You probably have to go back 2000 years to a small region in the Roman Empire called Palestine and a small group of disparate men and women following a wandering evangelist with big ideas, to find a culture similar to the one most liberals and progressives want to align themselves to. Which is hardly modern, is it?

Mad Priest's place is called Of Course I Could Be Wrong. (Be prepared for just about anything over there!)
