I have a hard time wrapping my mind around conservatism or any right wing view, really. What can one conserve in a world in constant flux? Do we drive on stone tires? Use rotary phones? The Gutenberg press? There’s an inescapable hypocrisy when I see a conservative use a microwave or check Facebook on their smartphone. And I think they sense it too, and that’s what drives the anti-science agenda.
