What Is Conservatism ? This is the introductory chapter of Public Private Relationships and The New Owners of the Means of Production in which I identify my own political philosophy There is much talk in today's American political landscape about conservatism. This is my view. Conservatism is Individualism The purpose of American conservatism is to preserve the political philosophy of the founders of the   United States, as documented in The United States Constitution, the Federalist Papers and The Declaration of Independence. The fundamental principal of that philosophy is individual liberty. A conservative considers policy within the framework of the United States Constitution. A progressive regards the Constitution as outdated and no longer suitable for today's world. A conservative rejects policy if it is inconsistent with the Constitution. A progressive devises ways around the Constitution and the statutes if they pose obstacles to what the progressive wants.
