�In the United States,� [and I add Canada] ��conservatism offers only a retrogressive utopia to circles best described as cranky, if not crankpot.� but wait, there�s more!
�In so far as it is not that, conservatism is a defensive gesture of businessmen and politicians who would defend the status quo but who are without ideas with which to do so.� (Wright Mills, 1962, p. 16)
