Nihilism, Futurist Traditionalism and Conservationism

What is conservatism?

19 08 10 - 04:49

Looking for that core principle:

Conservatism consists of:

  • a deep suspicion of the power of the state;

  • a preference for liberty over equality;

  • patriotism;

  • a belief in established institutions and hierarchies;

  • skepticism about the idea of progress;

  • elitism

  • ...with American conservatism emphasizing the first three. - Secular Right

Sounds like Social Darwinism: we're less concerned with trying to level the playing field than that nothing exists to obstruct the best from rising.

I'll submit an even simpler answer: conservatism is about adapting to reality. Liberalism is about making nice on a social level.
