Can we even call it a conservative “surrender,” since the conservatives never believed in the things they they supposedly believed in?

James R. writes:

Peter Hitchens, writing about things Over There, may as well be writing about things Over Here:

As with every piece of ground this party gives up as it retreats before the social, cultural, sexual and ultimately political revolutionaries of the 1960s left, it has no understanding of, or liking for, the things it is supposed to defend. So once it has given them up, usually by running away from a fight, it never occurs to it to recapture the ground lost. It becomes, bit by bit, the image of its opponents, until it is actually part of the revolution itself.
