The status quo, change, and the purpose of the military and the police
If we want liberty and freedom then we don't reject the gun-owning military or the police, because it is they who protect us from the authoritarianism of other gun-owning militaries or local gangs who take away our liberty and freedom. Somehow modern liberalism does not understand this.
The purpose of the military and the police is to protect our liberty and freedom, not to establish liberty and freedom, as our neoconservative/neoliberal-led military tried to do in the middle east, where the conservative status quo is not liberty and freedom.
Where I would differ a bit from some conservatives is in defining the status quo as needing to include the ongoing changes of biological evolution within the status quo, which also needs protecting, because new adaptations need time and protection to know what is an improvement and what is not.
I find the good old U.S.A. the best place in the world for protecting this kind of status quo and change, if the modern liberals or cultural Marxists are not allowed to rule.
