The Heritage Foundation (a political conservative think tank) wrote an article covering a debate with the question, "Which is the preferable philosophy, conservatism or libertarianism?"
Now, of course this is a liberally minded site. And, on first glance I find this question an easy one. (My answer being libertarian, as that is my political branding of choice these days, for the most part I guess). But, then I got to thinking, with conservatism (Republican ideals these days at least) leaning ever more toward more historically liberal notions on many subjects, I thought it would be interesting to enter this question into our debate.
So, what do you think, which is the preferable philosophy of the two options: conservatism or libertarianism? Honestly, in some ways, I could see that argument (from a liberally minded person) going both ways with valid talking points.
