“Conservatism is fundamentally reactionary. It is hostile, first and foremost to the emancipation of the subordinates of society. Who those subordinates are changes across time, most recently black people and women. In that sense Donald Trump fits very much with the patterns of reaction on the Right that we’ve seen going back to the very beginning, but most recently going back to the 1960s and 1970s. The beginning of conservatism is really the French Revolution. That’s the first Great democratic revolution that seeks to emancipate a class of people, where the bottom of society say, “we have the right to govern ourselves”, “we are opposed to the fact of subordination”, and the first great thinker on the Right is Edmund Burke. And I would argue that he’s been misunderstood by a lot of people. The typical Burke you get and you learn about somebody who is traditional, and cared about prudential, reasoning, who was against extravagance, who was against ideology. But if you go back and actually read him, you would find he’s anything but that. He was very much a reactionary protector of hierarchy, and much more of a Trumpist than respectable conservatives would like to admit.” #edmundburke #conservatism #coreyrobin #frenchrevolution #reactionary #reactionaries #jacobin #lesmiserables #donaldtrump #trumpism #altright #populism #conservative #conservatives #republican #republicans #GOP #liberal #liberals #military #progressive #democrat #democrats #libertarian #libertarians #politics #thenewdeal #republicanparty #democraticparty #theresistance
