In my opinion, conservatism is better served, at this moment, by directly engaging the culture. We need conservative teachers, professors; conservative doctors, conservative actors, conservative priests, conservative directors, conservative artists and musicians. Most of all, conservative mothers and fathers. These people shape current and future generations think and feel about the world more than perhaps intellectuals and politicians, who are often unnoticed by the average uninformed American. Right now liberals have an almost unbreakable control on media and education – by changing this we have a better chance that later generations will be more conservative, and hence willing to even consider the Republican party no matter its faults – or at least their rejection of it will be grounded in conservative principles.
