The Conservative Retreat From the Public Sphere

I wrote last month: In our liberal democracy, issues that carry an abiding potential for violence are downplayed. This is seen in the phenomenon of ‘conscience’ votes, whereby politicians mitigate terse disagreements by simply abdicating the fight for deeply held moral beliefs. This retreat from upholding morality in the public sphere is marked among self-described… Continue reading The Conservative Retreat From the Public Sphere

Why the Centre-Right Will Not Do

I have a friend that is fairly well connected in the Liberal party. He often reproaches me for not supporting Scott Morrison, arguing him to be the ‘best alternative’. True, Scott Morrison is preferable to recent predecessors: Turnbull, Abbott, Gillard, Rudd. As highlighted by Gregory Hood, however, centre-right ‘conservatives’ are desperate to keep nationalists out… Continue reading Why the Centre-Right Will Not Do

Why Liberalism is Insufficient

In countering critics of liberalism, the establishment left and right tend to mirror each other. This shared defence ostensibly goes along the following lines: Liberalism may have caused significant social, economic and cultural disruption. But these changes must remain impeded lest we irrationally resist the inevitable arc of history. Whatever costs–imposed on the family, religion,… Continue reading Why Liberalism is Insufficient

Why Conservatives Lose

Saturday, I referred to ‘Drag Queen Storytime’ now hosted in the Perth public library. As prior outlined, because of unbridled private obsession, the elites can ferment disturbing trends–such as ‘Drag Queen Storytime’–and essentially avoid scrutiny for their iniquities. However broadly unabated the sexualisation of children may be, there exists *some* political opposition to this phenomenon.… Continue reading Why Conservatives Lose

The Conservative Retreat From Abortion

On August 8, the bill to decriminalise abortion in NSW passed the lower house. With this bill decided a whopping 59 to 31 votes in favour, it looks set to pass the upper house when the final vote occurs in mid-September. Upon this, abortion in NSW would change from a crime carrying a maximum penalty… Continue reading The Conservative Retreat From Abortion

Tucker Carlson and the Question of White Victimhood

American Renaissance, by Gregory Hood, January 11, 2019: Fox News commentator has raised the ire of Conservatism, Inc. The conservative movement is uniquely hobbled. First, its supposed leaders are less committed and militant than its followers. Second, it may be the only political movement in America that tries to dissuade followers from productive action, rather… Continue reading Tucker Carlson and the Question of White Victimhood

The Distinction Between Contemporary and Classical Conservatism

When this blog was founded in October 2015, I described myself as a ‘conservative’. In this fledging period, I mostly blogged against Islam, ISIS, climate change, socialism, Malcolm Turnbull and Barrack Obama. Then after becoming increasingly right-wing, I detached myself from the conservative label. Yet, additional research revealed I’d jumped the gun. When defined appropriately,… Continue reading The Distinction Between Contemporary and Classical Conservatism
