History of Conservatism

politics, philosophy, history

I make it a point to limit my info intake from Youtube for obvious reasons, but I want to share this one despite that, because it’s quite good and well researched. The video and transcript are here, and the sources are listed and summarized here. Looks like a good start in understanding what Conservatism is in a historical and political sense. Not scientific, because, unsurprisingly, science doesn’t really come into the raison d’etre of those who have developed this framework in order to preserve something (their privilege!).
