Hi Craig Weinberg Fear is the control tool of fascism, not conservatism. Fascism is state control of the individual through fear. Conservatism is the opposite, desiring the least state control of the individual (freedom).
You're confusing Libertarianism and Conservatism. Libertarians hate and fear state control. Conservatives like it so long as it serves to maintain the existing hierarchy of wealth and power.
Liberalism aims at maximum state control of the individual through laws and regulations (least freedom).
Then why is it that liberals are for legalizing recreational drugs while conservatives are against it. Liberals are for letting homosexuals marry while conservatives are against it. Liberals are for doing stem cell research while conservatives are against it. Liberals are for letting people immigrate where ever they want to live, conservatives are against it.
If you break those laws, etc., you fear going to jail.
