Mission Statement


As a first-time blogger who recently discovered the world of blogging, I decided it might be a good idea to explain the purpose of this blog as it relates to the title.

I was reading an article about conservatism one day, and I was surprised to read about the difficult nature in defining conservatism in politics. This makes sense because, while the basic principles of the word may be similar all over, conservatives have different goals in different countries of the world. Even in our own country, there is a disunity of what conservatism actually is - what it means, where it comes from, and how we should apply conservative principles to politics and policy.

Therefore, while it is admittedly a lofty goal, I wish to bring conservate principles into focus and help to define a more unifying and easily-understood idea of conservatism (through applications of conservative principles to current political events). Thus, I will be regularly reporting on newsworthy events, with analysis drawing on history, economics, philosophy, and theology as they all relate to conservatism, in the hopes of more clearly defining The Conservative Standard.

Stay tuned...
