The Future of the Conservative Movement
“All great systems, ethical or political, attain their ascendency over the minds of men by virtue of their appeal to the imagination; and when they cease to touch the chords of wonder and mystery and hope, their power is lost, and men look elsewhere for some set of principles by which they may be guided” – Russell Kirk

Decades of despair and a constant descent into oblivion are the only tangible legacy of the American Empire. The vast majority are disenfranchised from any meaningful levels of power or decision-making. Elites or all stripes and ideologies share a fundamental bond of desire; namely, control of the herds for the benefit of the few. Conservatism has lost its way. Bedrock principles have been betrayed. Natural rights are relegated to the burial crypt. Moreover, phony cryptic Judas’ make themselves out as patriots. They speak the “PC” rhetoric and claim to be traditionalist, while they dig the hole deeper to bury the meaning of the American Revolution.
The lesson of the 1960’s is lost to the “so called” conservative. The overriding term for the enemy under LBJ and Nixon was “The Establishment”. That same descriptive slur, applies in spades, to the ruling class of this era. Make no mistake about it; there are few genuine conservatives in positions of power in state or federal government. Ponder, the standards necessary to earn the reverence of untold ages and carry the banner of Western Civilization in today’s cesspool society.
