Interesting quote: More interesting the source...



quote:

“While liberal worldviews are future- or progressive -oriented, conservative perspectives are more past-oriented, and in general, are interested in preserving the status quo.” the report says. “The far right represents a more extreme version of conservatism, as its political vision is usually justified by the aspiration to restore or preserve values and practices that are part of the idealized historical heritage of the nation or ethnic community.”


Take 3 guesses.. I'll post the answer in a few minutes.

Whomever said it is a moron. It's illogical to define conservatives in terms of the status quo. If the status quo in our society was Marxism then conservatives would advocate for radical change and complete removal of the status quo.

“Shouldn’t the Combating Terrorism Center be combating radical Islam around the globe instead of perpetuating the left’s myth that right-wingers are terrorists?” the staffer said. “The $64,000 dollar question is when will the Combating Terrorism Center publish their study on real left-wing terrorists like the Animal Liberation Front, Earth Liberation Front, and the Weather Underground?”


Reply from a GOP Congressman.

Apparently this extremist that wrote the article being referred to in the link is Arie Perliger him and another guy wrote a book called Jewish Terrorism in Israel. He's just another Muslim sympathizer that needs to be dealt with accordingly.

Not that suprising, I was in the military (National Guard) and our officer core left alot to be desired. I will say the Natty Guard is much different from the regular army, but all the same, they get basically the same training and courses required to become an officer. It is the enlisted men and women as well as the non-commisioned that are the back bone of our armed forces.

Not really, this is basic political nomenclature, reactionaries want to return to the past, conservatives want to maintain the status quo and progressives want to make changes to the status quo. That is basic political thought,

When the soviet union was breaking up conservatives wanted to maintain the union, progressives wanted disunion and the reactionaries wanted to return to a more authoritarian past.

After the 1917 revolution the reactionaries were the Whites, the progressives were deviationist which could have been either left or right depending on the direction of their change.

BBTAIM, that was a poorly prepared piece of crap if the WT is accurate in its reporting.

In order to accept that definition, then you must believe that today a conservative would say the following...

We should give racial preferences to minorities.
I'm glad Barack Obama is President.
We should have trillion dollar debts.
We should cut military spending.
Welfare programs are great.

...because all of those = The Status Quo.

Several problems with your argument

1. People are not monolithic in their opinions and we are dealing with only three labels

2. Besides a world view there are also individual issues

3. Many people who thik they are conservative are actually reactioanaries,

4. Your view of history is way too short and narrow

There are no problems with my argument.
You are actually supporting my position that the SQ standard is irrelevant.
The founding fathers wanted change from the SQ. Therefore they must have been liberals. But today's liberals hate the FF... bunch of dead white men with slaves. Today's conservatives revere the FF.
