I believe that conservatism is not in itself inimical to scientific and technological progress. A conservative government could not slowly reform society in its image if progress was irreconcilable. The conservative would not be able to effectively remodel society without a concept of progress as a transformative agent. The true conservative believes in adapting or perishing, because our existence is governed by a crude social Darwinism where survival of the fittest is the name of the game. The conservative is first and foremost, a realist who must respond logically to the course of historical development within his own social and cultural milieu.
Conservative theory should be based on objective reality and reinforced by hard empirical data. There is no 'civilization and progress' if the only outcome is hysteria and downgoing. Government and law are worthless if their ripened harvests are men without sap.
It is a shame that referring to yourself as a conservative envokes a lot of confusion. This stems mostly from the misdefinition of classical liberalism as "conservative."
While I am a fascist and am a forward-thinking person, I firmly hold myself in a traditional heritage and political structure. I do not see conservatism and fascism in direct opposition to each other, I don't mean "conservative" in an issue-based manner but as a political structure, which we seek to modernize economically to deal with the realities of an industrial society. American "conservatives" are, by definition, classical liberals; supercapitalists who worship money as god, at the displacement of integrity, the environment, racial integrity, national pride and at the expense of causing unnecessary war and conflict.
Fascism and social conservatism (i.e: family values, heterosexualism, masculinity) do not oppose each other. Obediance, service and hard work, go hand in hand with fascism. These are fantastic, healthy ethics. However, economic conservatism is a barricade that needs to be torn down in favour of corporatism. Corporatism must be advanced.
I see fascists, such as myself, as revolutionary conservatives.
