Conservatism is a sentiment. It has biological, environmental, pedagogical and rational components that reinforce it. Classical liberalism is a political philosophy. Conservatives in the USA are conservative TOWARD classical liberalism. Christian Aristocratic Manorialism is a social model. Conservatives are conservative TOWARD Christian Aristocratic Manorialism. One does not need to read anything. In fact, having to ‘read’ something is a decidedly negative property of any social model. It must be capable of propagation by experience, and in particular, the experience of a child.
All rational models seek to advocate in favor of the sentiment. Not the other way around.
