WHAT IS CONSERVATISM?

John Kenneth Galbraith

Conservatives think they have the answer to save this country and are pushing a political philosophy that progressives, even some of their own, believe will bring it down. It isn’t that the right wants to really “bring down” the U.S., they just want to bring it to the level where the monied-few control the commerce of America, making the rich richer. And I don’t mean just the millionaires and billionaires, there are those that feel just secure and are well off that share this philosophy. John Kenneth Galbraith said: “The modern conservative is engaged in one of man’s oldest exercises in moral philosophy: that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.” If you don’t know who Galbraith is there is no use explaining. And I must admit, most conservatives I know do not seem overly concerned over the plight of the needy in most categories.
