    Conservatism is an economically and civically variable, culturally Trad.png right ideology. Conservatism seeks to maintain the social order and their country's traditional values, they usually seek to preserve a range of institutions like religion with the aim of emphasizing social stability and continuity.

    History

    The first established use of the term "conservatism" in a political context originated in 1818 with François-René de Chateaubriand. Conservatism has since been used to describe a wide range of views that aim to maintain certain traditional views, but there is no single set of policies associated with the term.

    Cball-US.png United States Conserv.png

    The meaning of "conservatism" in the United States is quite different in comparison with what people from other parts of the world consider conservatism; when they talk about conservatism they usually refer to Lib.png Liberalism or Neoliberal-icon.png Neoliberalism. Since the 1950s, conservatism in the United States has been chiefly associated with the Republican Party. However, during the era of segregation, many Southern Democrats were the ones considered conservatives.

    The characteristics defining conservatism in the US support for the traditional family, law and order, the right to bear arms, Christian values, anti-socialism, and defense of "Western civilization, its traditions, and way of life". About major economic policies in general that they defend are, along with Libertarian.png Libertarians, favor small government, low taxes, limited regulation, and free enterprise, although most conservatives in the US are also Keynes.png Keynesian, which are the economic policies that mostly differentiate them from most Libertarians. Some of them also see religion as an important part of Western Civilization are opposed to secularism, and separation of the church and the state.

    They are also considered Necon.png Neoconservatives and foreign interventionists, assimilationists, and at some points also Imp.png imperialists, they believe in strong morals, and are in favor of intervening in other places that don't align with these values. Another part of US conservatism is trying to stop the spread of Soc.png Socialism.

    Other modern conservative positions include opposition to big government and opposition to environmentalism. On average, American conservatives desire tougher foreign policies than liberals do. Economic Lib.png Liberalism, deregulation and social conservatism are major principles of the Republican Party, but they're not in opposition to bail-outs and, in general, certain interventionism.

    Cball-Germany.png Germany CDU Party.png

    In Germany, Conservatism grew alongside Nation.png Nationalism, resulting in Germany's victory over France in the Franco-Prussian War, the formation of the United German Empire in 1871, and Otto von Bismarck's simultaneous rise on the European political stage.

    With the rise of Nazi.png National Socialism in 1933, Farm.png agrarian movements faded away, replaced by a more command-based economy and forced social integration. Although Adolf Hitler was able to win the support of many German industrialists, prominent Trad.png traditionalists opposed his policies of euthanasia, genocide, and attacks on organized religion.

    More recently, the work of the conservative Cdem.png Christian Democratic Union leader and Chancellor Helmut Kohl has helped bring about German reunification and closer European integration in the form of the Maastricht Treaty.

    Today, German conservatism is often linked to politicians such as Merkelism.png Angela Merkel. Who can be defined by her marked attempts to save the common European currency (Euro) from devaluation and other certainly important financial issues.

    Another form of conservatism developed in France in parallel to conservatism in Britain. It was influenced by CountEn.png Counter-Enlightenment works by men such as Joseph de Maistre and Louis de Bonald. Many continentals or traditionalist conservatives do not support the separation of church and state, with most supporting state recognition of and cooperation with the Catheo.png Catholic Church, such as had existed in France before the Revolution.

    They also added Modnat.png patriotism, and Nation.png Nationalism to the list of traditional values they support. Conservatives were the first to embrace Nationalism, which was previously associated with Lib.png Liberalism and the Revolution in France.

    Cball-Russia.png Russia United Russia.png

    Under Vladimir Putin, the dominant leader since 1999, Cball-Russia.png Russia has promoted explicitly conservative policies in social, cultural, and political matters, both at home and abroad but has attacked multiple times economic Lib.png Liberalism, which differentiates them from other conservatives. Putinist conservatism is unique in some respects as it supports Regulationism.png economic intervention with a mixed economy, with strong Nation.png nationalist sentiment and social conservatism, opposing largely most of the Libertarian.png Libertarians' ideals. Unlike most western conservatives, Putin's version promotes a Klep.png Kleptocratic form of government over a democratic one, is Oligarchy.png Elitist and mostly opposed to populism.

    Cball-UK.png United Kingdom Con-t.png

    Conservatism in the Cball-UK.png United Kingdom is similar to its counterparts in other Western nations, but has a distinct tradition and has varied over time.

    During and after World War II, the Conservative Party made concessions to Dsa.png Democratic Socialist's policies of the left. The basis of the post-war consensus was the Beveridge Report. Between 1945 and 1970 (consensus years) unemployment averaged less than 3% as "full employment" was the policy of both Conservative and Labour governments. The post-war consensus included a belief in Keynes.png Keynesian economics, a mixed economy with the nationalization of major industries, the establishment of the National Health Service, and the establishment of a modern welfare state in Britain.

    However, in the 1980s, under the leadership of Margaret Thatcher, and the influence of Keith Joseph, there was a dramatic shift in the ideological direction of British conservatism, with a movement towards, what are considered free-market economic policies and reforms.

    In efforts to rebrand and increase the party's appeal, following three consecutive defeats on the general elections, both leaders have adopted policies that align with more Moder.png moderate views. This has included a "greener" environmental and energy stance, and adoption of some socially liberal views, such as acceptance of Gay.pngLes.png same-sex marriage. However, these policies have been accompanied by Fiscon.png fiscal conservatism, in which they have maintained a hard stance on bringing down the deficit, and embarked upon a program of economic austerity.

    Notes

    1. Depends mainly on the cultural context and the importance of capitalism within that context.
    2. Depends on the cultural context and the importance of the constitution in that context. In countries with long established constitutions the constitution will be more important to conservatives than in ones with short-established constitutions
