Conservatism and “Progress”

“Conservatism is more of a mindset than an ideology. It encourages scepticism when hearing about grand plans, abstract ideas and simple solutions for problems,
knowing that people are prone to overestimating their importance and knowledge on human affairs. Essentially, it teaches: don’t rush in. To judgement or
action”.

The above is an interesting take on Conservatism from Ryan Shorthouse, of the liberal Conservative think tank Bright Blue. For my own take on Conservatism, please see (https://kmorrispoet.com/2018/06/29/conservatism-2/).

When They Say

When they say
“You must be in the progressive way”,
I shall talk
Of my walk
Of earlier today.
Of the wind’s dance,
And of more than one fallen branch.
