Dear Three P’s:
So much is being written
about liberalism and conserva
tism that one is confused. Mr.
Hoover has stated that Marxism
and Socialism is penetrating our.
entire life and unless we awake!
to this poison soon, it may bej
too late. Would you comment!
on what is a liberal and what
is a conservative and how this
Dear Ignatius: -
|V You pose a very deep and i
penetrtating question to which]
there is no definite clear cut]
answer and which would re
quire more space than is avail
able. A complete answer would!
require a review of all political,!
social and economic philosophy!
from before Aristotle to date.:
You must remember that civili-i
zation is a slow process of dc-!
vetopment and change, and
when changes occur more rapid- 1
ly than we can understand and;
absorb, we face disaster. A
liberal believes he can reform!
man and the world by change,!
and he has no respect for the!
past or for individual moral re-]
sponsibiiity. A conservative has
a deep spirit of veneration for
law and order, a respect for]
property and the wisdom of the]
past; he has a humble respect,
for human institutions which,]
under Providence, have grown
Vp through history. Let us];
paraphrase from Kirk's "The
Conservative Mind”, and it may,
give you a better understanding
of the two philosophies of the
liberal and conservative: A lib
eral generally believes in the i
perfectibility of man; that e.iu-j
cation, legislative and change in;
the environment can make,gQds;
out of men. He does not be-i
lieve that man has a tendency
toward violence and sin. Also
a liberal has only contcmpi for
the traditions of the past, and
has little use for- moral re3j..an*
sibility. He believes in total;
democracy and political leveling.
Orders and privileges in society
are condemned but is in favor
of centralization and consolir’a-j
tion. Further the liberal be-]
lieves in economic leveling as]
though every one has the same
capacity for economic respon
sibility; he has no use for the
institution of private property.
Then, in general, the liberal be
lieves that the government
should take over the entire func-|
tion cf ordering as he thinks]
he should, be ordered in his ev
As contrasted with the phi
losophy of the liberals, the con
servative believes in conscience. l
that there is a moral responsi-

dition of what has been prov
en to be true. There is no be

1 there are orders and classes, and (
i the only true equality should!
be moral equality, A conserva
tive believes that property and
freedom are inseparable, and
without the right of private
property, liberty no longer es
; ists. A " conservative believes
that man must put a control on
his will and appetites, for mam
is governed more by emotion]
(than reason. Further the con
jservative recognizes that change
jis not reform, and too many (
and too frequent changes mays
' mean the destruction of society]

I Let us apply some of these 1
philosophical principles to our:
every day life. Let us consider
the Federal income and estate

I mum of twenty per cent of yourj
net income and goes to ninety
per cent, which in a sense is
a denial of private PWetty.,
Then the estate t*x does the?
same, so that a man with any
kind of an estate can only be
queath to his heirs a small pro
portion of his estate. This is,
destroying individual initiative
and the right of private proper
ty. The government takes the
money and applies it vthere it
will according to presumed so-;
cial needs, such as
housing, social benefits of all
kinds and the unbusiness like
social security. The only
thought in the minds of people
today is material security, so
much so that doctors and psy
chiatrists wish the word “se
curity” could bo removed from
the language as the feeling and
desire for material security is
creating more neurotics than
ever existed in history. There is
nO moral of spiritual security!
any more, they have gone down
the drain with social security
programs. No longer is a man’s
home his castle, for in the gen-,
eral interest of the welfare of (
society, as the government sees
it, it can take and condemn'
property as it sees fit. Consider
the Metropolitan area schemes
and the annexation programs.
The courts, on the basis of so
cial philosophy and not on the
basis of legal jurisprudence, are
taking away the right to will
your property as you would de
sire. Social expediency is the,
answer rising above the right
of private property. No longer
can a man employ who he wish
es to emplov. if he does the
FEPC will be on him. Then
consider the TOO corporations,
divided into 3.000 companies,
that the government operates
and manages at the taxpayers’
expense, without paying any

If you can’t Lind just what you want right around home

Easter, read why Norfolk is the best place to go!

There’s a wider selection in Norfolk’s attractive stores. There are more than 200 apparel stores 2OOO
retail establishments all offering a variety that will enable you to find exactly what you want.
Prices in Narfolk stores are down-to-earth! Larger volume and quick turnover mean less overhead and
jower prices. The value you receive is high the price you pay, economical and sensible*
All over town you’ll discover the latest in Spring fashions. Remember, quality merchandise and fair prices
make it a real pleasure to shop in Norfolk.
The number of convenient parking places increases every year. Traffic is lighter on Tuesdays and Wednes
days and even more parking spaces are available.
Regularly scheduled Tryijways buses make it possible for you so leave for Norfolk in the morning, do your

private epteiyrise. Consider the
; farm subsidies. Consider gll of
. the reports and forms that busi
! ness as well as individuals must
fill out for the government.
Many a person is paying an ex
cess incofne tax as he is not a
certified public accountant.
Then consider the? demands
mgde upon the Federal Govern
ment by States, cities and social
organizations within society. In
1933 the Federal grants in aid
■to States was a paltry figure,
applying to highways. Since the
inception the New Deal the
Federal Government (taxpayers)
has contributed over ONE HUN
DRED AND FIVE BILLION J
DOLLARS in grants in aid pro-1
~ In the present session of. Con
gress, bills already have been
introduced providing for federal
housing, slum clearance, build
ing country club schools, in
creases in the pay of teachers,
subsidizing commuting fares for
suburban areas, totaling billions
of dollars. These are only a
small number of items the Gov
ernment is called upon to subsi
dize in the guise of liberalism.
The Federal debt has reached
the point that it is getting be
yond our ability with current
taxes to amortize it or pay the
interest with the result that
foreigners are beginning to dis
count the value of the dollar.
Perhaps you will derive some
understanding of liberalism with
an understanding of what the
goverment is doing with your
money as a taxpayer. As to
conservat ; sm, the best defini
tion is Edmund Burke’s; We
should acceDt from the past that
which has been proven true; not
to change it unless it is an
improvement and to hand on
to posterity as good, if not
better, than we received from 1
tfte past. !
