A Different Kind of Progress

http://thezman.com/wordpress/?p=5295

What plagues the modern Right is that they have no reason to exist other than as the Left’s nagging old lady. Some new fad sweeps the fever swamps of the Left and conservatives are right there to lecture everyone about the foolishness of it.

Conservatism exists to resist change. The New Right may not be conservative. It may be dynamic, embracing any progress that fits within what once were conservative principles. The New Right leads. The New Right anticipates, embraces, and synthesizes. It is future-oriented more than backward-looking. It is about possibilities instead of risks.
