Yes, this political ideology begins with Edmund Burke
, not the French right wing
. It goes along both traditional and paleolibertarian
lines. It became a popular movement through Frank Myer
and the best written full analysis of the movement might be found in Kirk’s “The Conservative mind
I too have been an admirer of John Randolph; however, his position, true to what you have in your signature. He favoured an aristocracy. Such is more conservative than what I would hold. Although, in another time or culture I would have taken to him as I did so when I was a young adult. I have also admired Richard Weaver and he lays out his ideology well in ‘Ideas have consequences
’, who, in ways, is similar to E.F Schumacher, yet more, in my opinion, a central figure in political conservatism.
