American Conservative Movement Today

"The American conservative movement today is of a counter-revolutionary nature, a reaction to and against the liberal principles of the Enlightenment, and an attempt to turn the clock back to pre-Reformation days when God, not humankind, was the center and focus of human endeavor, when not natural rights but divine restrictions were the order of the day – a retroactive attempt to turn America into something it was never designed or created to be, indeed, could not have been before the Enlightenment."
