True Conservatism

Preserving and passing on a most important of human value: tradition

Sunday, March 4th, 2018

If you think you know what 'conservative' means because you’ve had to endure contemporary political, moral or economic voices, you probably don’t know what classic ‘Toryism’ was and is. (Hint: it’s not what we see in Canadian or American politics.) In fact, you might be surprised (and relieved) to know that the roots of conservatism, as a reaction to Enlightenment industrialization and revolution, are friendly to aspects of liberalism, communitarianism, and environmentalism. In fact, you might discover you are more of a conservative than you think! This talk draws upon the work of philosopher Roger Scruton.
