Before I’m thrown under the bus for the title read the passage below.  It reminds me a lot of what Eric said back in May.

Dinesh D’Souza in his book Letters to a Young Conservative says the following:

Typically, the conservative attempts to conserve, to hold on to the values of the existing society. But what if the existing society is liberal? What if the existing society is inherently hostile to conservative beliefs? It is foolish for conservatives to attempt to conserve that culture. Rather, he must seek to undermine it, to thwart it, to destroy it at the root level. This means that the conservative must stop being conservative. More precisely, he must be philosophically conservative but temperamentally radical.

Why would we want to conserve a culture that is hostile to conservative beliefs?  We shouldn’t.

Thoughts?  What does being philosophically conservative but temperamentally radical look like?
