The Ideas Behind Tea Party ‘Conservatism’
Here’s an interesting article on the roots of Tea Party ‘conservatism’.
It argues that they represent a far older conservatism, one from Europe where the ‘individual’ is assigned a place by God and nature and any attempts to change that imperils both society and the individual’s soul.
It ties in with my frequent observation that to Tea Party ‘conservatives’ that America is not a nation but a faith. They oppose modern society because modernism is, they believe, antithetical to faith.
