Conservatism as practiced by Bush and his true believers is more about pulling back than going forward. We see them pulling back on science and replacing it with the convenient political theory of the day. We see them pulling back from religious freedom, only accepting those with similar interpretations of sacred text. We see them pulling back from the American Dream, reserving it only for the corporate aristocracy. We see them pulling back from education, replacing it with the familiarity of their fears and superstitions. We see them pulling back from Liberty, replacing it with the comfort of a narcissistic dictator who defines reality and what freedoms to grant to subjects.
