It marks the limits to any kind of Conservative political project that seeks both to secure older English voters and retain centrist cosmopolitan support. Going on about the depravity of the liberal elite worked in the sense that it seemed to resonate for many readers of the magazine and segments of the broader public and helped to position conservatism — despite its origins in the remnant — as a democratic alternative to the liberal status quo.

Smaller shares of those who are less ideologically consistent pay attention to Facebook posts about government and politics than those with stronger ideological ties. There are, therefore, always marked substantive affinities between the moral and cognitive orientations of any particular ideology and those of the outlooks and creeds which prevail in the environing society and which affirm or accept the central institutional and value systems. Thus we conceive of a personality as shaping attitudes and not vice versa. [See Attitudes .] In the second place, there is the concept of “role,” usually defined as a pattern of expected behavior associated with a given position in society.

McGirr clearly seems to be no follower for Orange County conservatism, but she is still able to keep her disagreements from breaking through in her writing. And not all liberals believe in complete government control on both social and economic issues. While I would in no way assert that American conservatives (Republicans) are winners, or even true conservatives, it’s clear that American liberals have gravitated to their ideology because it promises a social climate where their low talent, low beauty, and low muscle features are not seen in a negative way.

Notably, the ideological areas of greatest consensus among Americans are all key priorities and investment targets of President Obama: renewable energy; education, science, and infrastructure; universal health care; financial support for the least well-off; public interest regulations; and reductions in inequality financed by increased taxes on the wealthy. If there is a change, ask each other to theorize about what may have caused the change.

They have definitely stuck to their ideological principles much more so than the other two main parties, although this has not led to much electoral success. SSPX epitomizes for them the essence of strict adherence to the true faith. Even during the Progressive Era itself, Benjamin Parker DeWitt's 1913 book, "The Progressive Era," defined progressivism along these terms, saying it was tied to a belief that government could relieve "social and economic distress."

You don’t have to show me your “black card”, this comment type is fairly common here. If it turned out to be untrue, few of our other beliefs would have to change. The USA should make every known strive to be a team player. Married women could not hold property in their own names, make contracts, sit on a jury, write a will, or vote.

Ross Perot ran again (this time on Reform Party ticket), once again draining away a large percentage of Dole's support and insuring Clinton another term after the majority of Americans voters voted against him.

Indeed, the growth of literacy and of the educated classes and the “intellectualization” of politics have widened receptivity to ideological beliefs.

As Mises Institute scholar Ralph Raico puts it, progressivism is “a vague term, but one that connote[s] a new readiness to use the power of government for all sorts of grand things.” Originating in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, progressivism was soon found in both the Democratic and Republican parties. Life is far more complicated than to fit one political system to us. Entitlements require that the government either appropriate money for a service or mandate another entity to pay for the service—for example, the right to education or to health care. 6 “Health care” refers to medical services, but not to a healthy state of being.
