Religious certainty was apparently no barrier to political liberalism. These
respondents seemed to be saying that liberal Islam was the only possible Islam.
The situation is parallel to the conundrum in the Western political tradition over
whether liberalism should be illiberal toward illiberalism.32 In each country, the
particular configuration of cultural conservatism and political liberalism is
constantly under debate. In Kuwait, for example, women got the right to vote in
2005, after several ...

Some of Lasch's language closely tracks Carter's speech. “[T]he impending
exhaustion of natural resources,” Lasch wrote, “[has] produced a mood of
pessimism in higher circles, which spreads through the rest of society as people
lose faith in their leaders.” Despite being a man of the left, Lasch's cultural
conservatism and critical appraisal of political liberalism led some conservatives
to embrace his book. While Lasch's Culture of Narcissism can be read as the
President Malaise 151.

The political implications of the faith are more negative than positive, so rejecting
liberalism does not mean accepting conservatism. In the first place, under the
influence of a liberal culture conservatives often fall for liberal moral errors too. In
the second place, like every worldly ideology conservatism commits heresies of
its own. But we can study conservatism another time. The first moral error of
political liberalism is pro- pitiationism. According to this notion I should do unto
others as ...

“The central conservative truth,” Daniel Patrick Moynihan once wrote, “is that it is
culture, not politics, that determines the success of a society. The central liberal
truth,” he added, “is that politics can change a culture and save it from itself.”1
Although there is wisdom in Moynihan's dictum, it suffers two defects. In the first
place, it leaves unclear what culture is and where politics comes from—or to put it
differently, it fails to put culture and politics in the context of nature, including
human ...

In 2000, many Americans were reading Gertrude Himmelfarb's One Nation, Two
Cultures, in which she echoed previous authors such as Robert Bork (see page
118) and claimed that culture wars were dividing the nation in half. Cultural
differences between conservatives and liberals were related to regional and
class divisions. Cultural conservatism was particularly appealing to white
workingclass Americans in the South and the Plains and Rocky Mountain states,
while liberal ideas ...
