Conservatism's Main Line

Really Simple Conservatism

The essence of Conservatism in government is to preserve and reinforce the good things, good ideas, and good laws in the nation, and to work diligently to eliminate the bad things, bad ideas and bad laws as permanently as possible, all for the benefit of the citizens.

While these things, ideas and laws are not precisely all good or all bad, the tendency is to group them into good and bad lists, with the understanding that in the process of undoing a bad thing, idea or law, its good part will be preserved by government as nearly as possible. As in most cases in life, the Devil is in the details. The conflicts with other political groups, progressives in particular, tend to occur when the notions of good and bad, and the timing of decisions are in opposition.

Then too, conservatives have a deep down desire to live in a system where there is great predictability, a goodly measure of certainty, security, comfort, and knowledge of the law (especially natural law and natural rights), and as well having equal opportunity for advancement, and the twin attributes of freedom and liberty. Conservatives do not want rapid and highly experimental changes in our way of life, unless the matter is urgent and provably necessary, and that the ramifications of the change are well understood and accounted for. Then, they will support changes.

So, you are a Conservative if you sign up to:
