Conservatism – the pseudo populist movement to preserve the status quo. More specifically, what exist are: systems of organization that govern communities and are designed to work the majority to produce wealth for the elite class of rulers. While the workers may be said to be free, because they are not bound to a particular employer and may vote for their choice of government representation whose duties have devolved to enforcing the relatively miserable conditions most of us live in, the implicit promise of upward mobility is largely unachievable. While we may join the owners in taking a greater share of the produce of the community, the proven probability of doing so is so small that it's literally impossible for most to ever succeed. That it's mathematically impossible is easily demonstrated. If one has 9 times the average of income and wealth of 10 people, then the other 9 have 1 average portion to share among them all.
That's the kind of status quo and freedom to exploit that conservatives wish to preserve and even make more repressive of the majority with tax cuts for the rich and wage and benefit cuts for the rest - to encourage the “job creators.” Disingenuous doesn't begin to describe their deceit. Tyrannical doesn't begin to describe their dehumanizing and impoverishing rule. Terrorist mentality doesn't begin to describe the threat their existence poses to the survival of the human race.
Conservatives are the same today as they've been since the beginning of civilization. The pharaohs, the caesars, the feudal lords, the Tudors, the English aristocracy and Tory traitors among us during and after the American Revolution, the slave owners of America and the 19th, 20th and 21rst century industrialists, capitalists, banksters and billionaires are all conservationists of the de-facto and de-juro systems of slavery that have afflicted humanity for ten thousand years.
Liberal - a conservative who wants to see better living conditions and treatment for the slaves.
Libertarian - a conservative who believes that less regulation of the masters will allow them to become one. Further: there's no necessity for most laws. Fraud will be eliminated by the rational agents operating in the market place. Prostitution and drug trafficking and use are victim-less. (There's no such thing as pimps, human traffickers, drug cartels or mafias or that our choices as consumers and unfettered competition will eliminate their threat.) The magic market, free of all government interference, is all we need to perfect the world we live in.
Such beliefs, of course, are beyond naive. They expose a complete lack of understanding of the world we live in. They assume possibilities for advancement that are mathematically impossible for all but a small percentage of the population. They ignore the reality that to take the place of a master doesn't expand the elite class or shrink the poverty such parasites create with their greed. It never enters their little minds that no matter how the work of others is organized to make one wealthy and no matter what it's called, it is in fact slavery.
So conservatives enslave us; liberals want decent treatment for the slaves, while conserving their personal advances (though willing to kickback a greater percentage than the outright cons) and libertarians think we can all be masters and nobody has to work as soon as we rid ourselves of all the protections we've fought in common, over the centuries, to create. (Perhaps the perpetrators of these frauds aren't as naive or stupid as the believers, though maybe they're both liars and fools.) Who is left to fight for us or even know there's a reason to fight?
Oh, conservative morons, that's what intelligent people call a rhetorical question. We know we must fight for ourselves. And unlike you we also know what's really in our best interest and that it's not what your conservative masters have programmed you to believe.
