I thought it was the other way around, that what would happen on Earth-2 would eventually happen to Earth-1. That's why Earth-2 had their heroes first.

The name thing came about because the elder JSA members were mature enough NOT to argue about such things with the younger JLAers.

No. This was a tool to explain the JSA still being active. Not as much time had passed on Earth-2 as we'd have thought, since it wasn't the same year there as it was here and on Earth-1. Again, they were "behind the times".

This was apparently a short-lived retcon to make the use of Earth-2 for the JSA's Earth (and some other things) actually make sense tho'.

Of course they'd agree, since their world was, for example, experiencing 1950 when Earth-1 was experiencing 1960 or 1970. Their reality was legitimately second in line.
