Leftoid journalist Martin Flanagan and former Labor politician Tom Uren ponder conservatism:
The word conservative, as it is commonly used, makes no allowance for the fact that one of the driving forces within the so-called conservative side are actually radicals. They are radical liberals. Conservatism is the belief that humans are flawed, that notions of human perfectibility are dangerous, particularly when applied en masse as the left sought to do for most of the 20th century. The question to be asked of conservatives is what exactly are they intent upon conserving. Their own small-mindedness, however clever? Meanness? Common prejudice? Or grand principles like the rule of law? Are we conserving fearlessness, or its opposite, the sort of fear that resides within the anti-social? And who exactly are these “neocons” who think with Dr Strangelove certainty of their ability to reshape the world and treat war as some sort of video game?
