Conservatism vs. authoritarianism

"The contrast between the British Right and the American Right could not be more glaring. The former is at least mildly faithful to the principles they espouse, while the latter has morphed completely into an authoritarian, government-power-worshiping faction that fantasizes it's waging glorious war against — to use Antonin Scalia's politicized term — 'radical Islamists,' but which is only at war with its own claimed principles and the principles on which the country was founded." —Glen Greenwald
