In the early 1970s, or the first Nixon term, we use to hear about "the silent majority". It was one of President Nixon's favorite lines, or a reference to millions of Americans who paid their taxes, lived by the rules and did not expect much from government.
Archie & Edith Bunker were the prototypical members of the silent majority. They lived in a small home in the New York area. Archie worked and Edith stayed home. They had one cute daughter who was married to a liberal, or the "meathead".
Let's just say that "All in the family" was perfect for its time. A show for the early 1970s! Millions tuned in because they were watching themselves!
