On Libertarians and Conservatives

Just a note on the difference between conservatives and libertarians. At, Anthony Gregory's essay parses out the differences between "conservatives" and libertarians. It is important to point out that many conservatives are not libertarians, and that libertarianism hearkens back to notions that undergird the American Democracy from its inception. Conservatism, these days, is much more social than political. Conservatives rarely fall into the politically conservative ideology of libertarians. At the very least, this is an interesting read, even if only for the comparison between ideologies and not the social commentary of our current political state.
