I Don't Understand Conservatism

by Turkana

If the government owns industries, and provides a social safety net, that's Socialism. Which is bad. If the government subsidizes industries, bails them out when they fail, and generally provides for industries the type of safety net that it shouldn't provide for people, that's good?

David Leonhardt has some thoughts. DarkSyde provides a primer on conservative theory.
