The Conservative TreeHouse -The Last Refuge blog has a really terrific banner (header), and on it’s “About” page, a stirring discussion of conservatism, contrasting it with Liberalism. Here’s a snippet:
The conservative understands that not only is it a waste of time to try to control you, it’s actually impossible. Humans were born to be free. And if we put a roadblock in front of you, you’ll find another way around it. So we see attempts at control as a waste of resources, energy and time at best, and at worst, creating detrimental results that serve to hinder people’s upward mobility or teach dependence. We see much more efficiency, as well as endless opportunity, in leaving you to your own devices. And we want the same in return.
