I have two questions about following sentence found in a paragraph from the American Cinemas of 1970s. The downloadable document is here.
This culture of corporate conservatism was met by a tide of revolt, resistance, and soulful rhythm. Revolt came on 24 April in the form of 200,000 antiwar protestors marching in Washington, D.C. (and other cities) to rally support for ending U.S. military presence in Southeast Asia.
1-Does "corporate conservatism" mean conservative people related to big companies or all people who are conservative together?
2- what does "soulful rhythm" mean? is it a metaphor? or what?
