Tory Democracy (Classic Reprint)by J. M. Kennedy

Excerpt from Tory Democracy
Another matter on which I have thought it worth while to lay some emphasis is the new anti-socialist movement in continental thought not merely Nietzsche's criticisms on Democracy and Socialism from the standpoint of a higher morality; but the general philosophic move ment against the totally erroneous principle of the equality of man. This, of course, necessarily involves the censure of some favourite Liberal doctrines: internationalisation, the equality of races, and so on.
In short, so far as politics is at present con cerned, there would appear to be very little difference between the programme Of the Liberals and the programme of the Conservatives. The main differences are in regard to questions like the disestablishment Of the Church in Wales, Home Rule for Ireland, and education. But, compared with the grave economic and socio~ logical problems necessarily engendered by the new movement in labour circles, these questions are triﬂing. Economic reform is everything. For the economic riddles Of our time the Liberal Offers a solution which, in my Opinion, tends to degrade the workman and to pave the way for a violent series Of labour explosions later on. Up to the present, these Liberal proposals have met with the approval, in principle, Of the Conserva tives. Tariff Reform alone will not solve the question it can only help to solve it partially. I Oﬂer a much bolder, but, I believe, eminently practicable solution. A new school of economics is arising - not Liberal, not Socialistic, but a Tory democratic school - and it is for the Con servative party to take advantage Of it.
