NY Times Conservative’s Solution to America’s Problems: Give President More Power | Mediaite: "American conservatism is a unique ideological movement in the Western world.
Unlike European conservatism, which maintains a strain of progressivism that the American right largely shrugged off about a century ago, modern American conservatism is a philosophy marked by a deep and abiding mistrust of man’s ability to control events and accurately prescribe remedies for societal ills. It is an ideology acutely aware of its own limits and the limits of others. As a result of this humility, conservatism in the United States preaches decentralization, checks on authority, and constraints on power lest the public be subject to the tyranny of good intentions."
