Economically, conservatives serve the big end of town. Socially, they serve tradition. They do not seem to understand that arguing from tradition leads to some very dark places. Or perhaps they do know. It is unclear which is worse. Much like the already rich arguing for Libertarian economics, only those already privileged could argue from tradition. Why is Conservatism? It is a millstone around the neck of humanity.
