The Difference between Conservatives and Liberals

The root difference between conservatives and liberals of today is that Conservatives take account of the “whole” man, while liberals  tend to look only at the material side of man’s nature.  The Conservative believes  that man is in part, an economic creature, but that he is also a spiritual creature with spiritual needs and spiritual desires.  What is more, these needs and desires  reflect the superior side of man’s nature, and thus take precedence over his economic wants.

Conservatism therefore looks upon the enhancement of man’s spiritual nature as the primary concern of political philosophy.  Liberals, on the other hand, in the name of a concern for human beings, regard the satisfaction of economic wants as the dominant mission of society.  They are, moreover, in a hurry. So their (liberals) approach is to harass the society’s political and economic  forces into a collective effort to compel “progress.”

The first obligation of a “political thinker” is to understand the nature of man.  The Conservative does not claim special powers of perception on this point, but he does claim familiarity with the accumulated wisdom  and experience of history, and he is not too proud to learn from the great minds of the past.

…Man is  unique creature. Man’s most sacred possession is his individual soul which has an immortal side and a mortal one. Hence, liberals eliminating prayer and God from schools.  Only a (political) philosophy that takes into account the essential differences of men, and, accordingly, makes provisions for developing the different potentialities of each man can claim to be in accord with nature.

We have heard much (lies and half truths) about the “common man” from liberals.  It is a concept that pays little attention to the history of a nation that grew the initiative  and ambition of uncommon men.  The Conservative knows that to regard man as part of an undifferentiated man is to consign him to ultimate slavery.

Secondly, the Conservative has learned that the spiritual and economic aspect of man’s nature are inextricably intertwined.  He cannot be economically free or even economically efficient if he is enslaved politically ( Obamacare, Social Security, Deficit, Dept of Ed, FCC, EPA….Taxes).  Conversely mans political freedom is illusory if he is dependent for his economic needs on the State (Fed Gov’t).

Third, The Conservative realizes that mans development… IS NOT something that can be controlled or directed by outside forces.

Every man for his own good  and for the good of society is responsible for  his own development.  The choices that govern his life are choices that he must make; they cannot be made by any other human being or collective of human beings!  

Obama and progressive mentality of the “Collective” are ludicrous pawns of socialism which is directly against the nature of man who with their claim of superiority and entitlement to tell others how to live, work, eat, and breathe.

The Tea Party represents conservatism because Republicans fail in words and deed.

The government is not responsible for you; you are responsible for “yourself.” “Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.” “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves”…
