[The true conservative is] prepared to defend the full range of natural differences that arise from the free expression of talent and effort in each human being, and thus will refuse in principle to forcibly equalize society. He generally seeks local solutions to human problems rather than any homogenizing state action. He is naturally anti-egalitarian, and finds poisonous and immoral the idea of forcibly levelling society, of trying to raise the weak by weakening the strong.


William D. Gairdner    Sep. 01, 1997 - from "Conservatism in a Nutshell", published on The Canadian Conservative Forum
