Elizabeth Warren's conservativism

By Ben Jacobs



Elizabeth Warren’s nascent campaign to win the Democratic nomination for the US Senate in Massachusetts has already launched its first Internet phenomenon. In this oft quoted video, Warren makes the point that “nobody in this country has gotten rich on their own.” It has been praised as a succinct statement of liberalism and attacked as “Marxism, American-style.” Both of these criticisms miss the point. Warren’s statement is not liberal, let alone Marxist. In fact, it is a fundamentally conservative statement of belief in a thing called society.

Warren’s statement sets aside a vision of society in which we all owe a series of obligations to each other. A factory owner owes a debt to those who finance the roads that transport his goods to market and to "pay forward for the next kid that comes along." But her conception of society is not one in which the state plays an active or leveling role redistributing income; after all if “you built a factory,” you are still entitled to “a big hunk” of its profits, in Warren’s folksy words. The revenues should not be redistributed to promote equality in income — it assumes that because its your factory and your idea, you have a right to profit from it. A commitment to free market economics is assumed unquestionably.

Instead, Warren’s philosophy seems little different from the oft-quoted cliché of John Donne, a conservative himself, that “no man is an island, entire of himself.” She invokes the concept of a “social contract” to which we have all agreed, and sets our differing obligations to society, an idea that winds through all of modern political thought. But, interestingly, her fears about what happens when this contract falls apart reverts to the Hobbesian basics of “marauding bands” looting and pillaging.

Although some on the right attack Warren as some sort of leftist, her agenda in creating the Consumer Finance Protection Agency and advocating for bankruptcy reform is simply to remedy the flaws in which free markets have gone off the tracks. It is not a statist philosophy but one that encourages individual home ownership and financial stability. It reinforces the traditional conservative ideas of building a society in which we all mutually are owed, and owe, obligations. The real controversy should be that the political discourse has shifted so much of late that such a deeply conservative and traditional idea could be considered remarkable at all.


Sorry folks Im not into this cut and paste because I dont know how to do it correctly. I will say one thing Elizabeth Warren has always been there to help the consumer mainly the middle class against many things like the credit card companies who for years got away with murder on the public. But when did the tea party become an advocate for the rich. Oh maybe we should call them the job creators. I think politics aside she has always been a fair person. If she is a liberal or whatever anyone wants to call her than I am a Liberal proudly.

To Cut.

1. Move your cursor in front of the first letter or item you wish to copy.

2. Left click your mouse or lap top.

3. Hold your click as you move the cursor over the information you wish copied until it is highlighted.

4. Right click mouse/laptop. Select COPY.

To Paste:

1. Move to the location you wish to paste the information and place your cursor exactly where you want your paste to start.

2. Right click again and select PASTE.

Voila

If you can't left and right click, go to the EDIT drop down menu and select COPY or PASTE as needed.

You can delete the empty space in your post by placing your cursor in front of the b in By, press your left click and drag the cursor to the top of the post, hit delete or right click and select delete.

The Herald program does not place photos you have copied in this manner. One way to deal with that is to delete the photos and other unnecessary items prior to placing here.

And what happens when Private Business owns Government? Government makes policy favoring Business and the Public suffers. Welcome to our recession.
