Correctly defined

Dwight at Standing on My Head hits it on the head with his aptly named Creative Conservative
A conservative doesn't just look back with affection and forward with fear. He looks look back with criticism and foward with hope. He wants to learn what was imperfect about the past so he doesn't plunge into a more imperfect future.

A conservative looks to the past not because everything in the past was good, but because he wants to see what good things from the past have stood the test of time.
