Real Conservatism . . . .
« on: September 04, 2019, 11:02:19 am »
This piece was originally published in the 3rd Quarter 1995 issue of Southern Partisan Magazine.

Though a free-market capitalistic system seems to have been a bedrock of America’s conser­vatism, according to Genovese, its overemphasis partially belies the full history of conservatism, par­tially lost and partially diffused since 1865. The preservation of Christian orthodoxy and individu­alism; advocacy of representative democracy; broad ownership of property; and free-market econo­my bounded within limits of morality—these are the qualities of the southern tradition that seem lacking in today’s matrix of conservatism.
