Punk Rock Conservatism

No Comments »

It’s not that new an idea. Johnny Ramone was a conservative. I consider D.I.Y. to be conservative. I was a fan of anarchy until I realized that idiots win in a lawless society. As James Madison wrote, “If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.” Neither of those being the case, we need some (hopefully limited) government. Anyway, this is Dana Loesh trying to make the case for punk rock conservatism. I don’t agree with it all but she does make the important point of not loving music for ideologies’ sake. Regardless, “Guns of Brixton” by the Clash.
