Conservatism is an ideology based on religiosity and traditionalism. It tends to do nothing more but infringe on the rights of those who simply want to be equal under the law. Progressivism = Forward, Conservatism = Backwards.
conservatives do not believe in the progression of morals. We don't understand everything this takes time, a long time. Conservatives are blinded by arrogance and think we are already there.
Governments need to be able to change to the times. Also tradition institutions tend to oppress women and minorities. Just look at the laws and societal standards from the past.
neither are forms of government but i get what you're saying.
The only way forward is progress
I don't think a lot of people understand the conservative side of this. Conservatives believe in progression, but just not in the same kind as progressives. Establishing economic freedom, limiting government, creating free markets, upholding traditional values, and maintaining a strong national defnese are all progressive in their own ways. To say that conservatives detest change is a straw man of the ideology, because there *is* a lot of change that conservatives want: removing affirmative action, giving gun rights to the law-abiding population, and reducing abortion clinics, as well as the things I mentioned above. Technology (as given in the left picture) has nothing to do with either side. If you really want to know what conservatives think, I suggest you ask them instead of making polls trying to assert bogus things.
Depends on what you want from a government. I find conservative ones to be more stable than progressive ones for instance. On the other hand progressive ones are more flexible. Its really up to what the person finds important.
While progressives usually take credit for the work of others, conservatism is predicated on responsibility, discipline, and a moral compass. Whether it be irresponsible tax and spend policies, or holding the country hostage to the absurd narratives of the "social justice" league, progressivism best represent the demographic of children: Naive, entitled, with the spontaneous temper tantrum mixed in for "balance." Conservatism, however, has endured the left's bully tactics. Their principles are timeless, as the success of such ways allow them to be. It's a belief that everyone holds value in their own personal way, while upholding accountability.
