Conservatives believe that there exists an enduring moral order, human nature is constant and moral truths are permanent. They understand that men and women are best content when they can feel that they live in a stable world of enduring values.
When you look around you at the world and even at your own life do you believe that you live in a stable world of enduring values? I would hazard to guess the answer would be no, I know that I do not feel that way. We are under continuous siege, with the aim of undermining our defences. Our own thoughts are not allowed, we often feel we cannot speak our mind. That the values that we believe and cherish are secret, that they must not be spoken about in public.
Conveniently for me the post for today at OzConservative was on this very topic, a right up to the minute announcement that we do not live in a world of enduring moral values.
