Kirk well known conservative type.<quoted text>
According to Russell Kirk, a conservative American political theorist, historian, social critic and literary critic:
Being neither a religion nor an ideology, the body of opinion termed conservatism possesses no Holy Writ and no Das Kapital to provide dogmata.
The conservative simply believes an enduring moral order and human nature is a constant, and moral truths are permanent and this order signifies harmony.
Twenty-five centuries ago, Plato taught this doctrine - the inner order of the soul and the outer order of the commonwealth - but even the educated nowadays find it difficult to understand.
Otherwise, conservatives believe in continuity as the means of linking generation to generation and matters as much for society as it does for the individual; pays attention to the principle of variety as the preservation of a healthy diversity in any civilization depends on the survival of classes and differences in material condition; understands the principle of imperfection of human nature and human restlessness and that mankind would grow rebellious under any utopian domination and would break out once more in violent discontent or else expire of boredom.
According to me:
We're also a pretty financially prudent bunch too and expect government to be equally prudent with our money.
