Since the reign of Grindelwald in the 1940s, pureblood traditions have rapidly digressed. The suppression of muggles and muggleborns lead to an extreme alteration in lifestyle. This can be clearly seen by those who uphold the old ways.
Where students were once indoctrinated into magical culture, they are now highly influenced by muggle philosophy and religion. We no longer teach muggleborn students pureblood etiquette, but instead teach children with magical upbringing muggle studies. Primordial and ritualistic magics have been abolished, labelled as dark, and Judeo-Christian holidays have replaced the ancient Sabbaths. In place of Yule or Samhain, we find Christmas and Halloween. Elemental magic has become taboo. Our mannerisms and customs have been classified as archaic.
Lord Voldemort's pro-pureblood movement quickly gained support from the ancient wizarding families. He promised to restore honor to the noble houses. But when his methods failed, what began as a political faction was revealed to be a hate group. Now, their tactics have deteriorated into terrorism.
Many of those who once believed in his cause have attempted to distance themselves from the revolution, only to find that abdiction comes at the greatest of costs. Those who outwardly rebel are executed. Any who dare refuse his service are coerced into doing his bidding, or disposed of all together. The Ministry of Magic is on the brink of collapse.
But from the ashes of the debilitated community, a few vigilantes rise to fight against him. The Order of the Phoenix, lead by Albus Dumbledore, battles for dominance.
