Rate this:

A compelling explanation of how conservatism is no longer what its founders intended and how it has been transformed into a tool of materialist economics and emptied of much of its original meaning.

* Explains how conservatives and progressives differ in their ideologies but are not absolute opposites

* Documents the range of influences across history that created and molded the cultural and political ideology of modern conservatism, such as the French Revolution, large-scale capitalism in the Gilded Age, Social Darwinism, and Andrew Carnegie's "gospel of wealth"

* Suggests that modern liberals have reasons to respect and learn from some of the tenets of classic conservative political thought
