Conservative logic

Conservative logic is largely a redundant term; logic leads one to a conservative, measured response, rather than the illogical embrace of change for the sake of change.

Examples of logic leading to conservative values:

  1. No civilization has ever been demonstrated to be successful or stable without faith. Therefore, claims that atheism are beneficial to society are illogical and lack evidence. Furthermore, examples of the ways in which faith is beneficial to society are easily found. Thus, it is logical to conclude that faith is beneficial and vital to a stable society.
  2. Traditional family values encapsulate a great many eminently logical concepts, including division of labor and specialization. Numerous studies have shown that full-time parenting is of substantial benefit. Furthermore, a cursory examination of the data available will show a strong correlation between the increase in two-income families and the increase in reported psychological problems among children. Conservatives logically recognize the great value of the role played by a stay-at-home mother; liberals dismiss the importance, and thus belittle those who choose to accept this critical responsibility.
  3. Conservatives recognize that freedom comes at a price, and that that price is not always pleasant. Liberals employ those same freedoms to criticize others for paying the necessary price.
  4. Conservatives reject "solutions" that won't actually solve anything and are designed largely to assuage guilt. For example, conservatives oppose emissions standards if those standards are going to be ignored by other major industrial powers, recognizing that such standards would only serve to put American manufacturers at a disadvantage.
  5. Conservatives recognize that massive, centralized government is illogical, as it leads to inefficient "One size fits all" solutions that fail to take local conditions into account.
  6. Conservatives comprehend the fundamental logic of the Bible as a unified, coherent work, rather than frantically quoting individual, out-of-context passages in an attempt to disprove its validity.
