There is no exact date when cultural conservatism appeared on the American political stage, but it must have been after 1987, which led some people to believe that the movement was initiated by writer and philosopher Alan Bloom, who wrote Close American Thought in 1987, an immediate and unpublished work. National bestseller. Although this book mainly condemns the failure of American liberal university system, its criticism of American social movement has strong cultural conservatism. For this reason, most people think it is the founder of the movement. Modern cultural conservatism is often confused with social conservatism. Social conservatism pays more attention to pushing social issues such as abortion and traditional marriage to the forefront of the debate, which deviates from the simple Anti-liberalization society advocated by Bloom. Today’s cultural conservatives, even in the face of tremendous changes, still adhere to the traditional way of thinking. They strongly believe in traditional values and traditional politics, often with a strong sense of nationalism. In the field of traditional values, cultural conservatives overlap most with social conservatives (and other types of conservatives). Although cultural conservatives do tend to be religious, it is only because religion plays such an important role in American culture. However, cultural conservatives can be affiliated to any American subculture, but whether they are Christian culture, Anglo-Saxon Protestant culture or African-American culture, they tend to be closely integrated with themselves. Cultural conservatives are often accused of racism, although their shortcomings, if manifested, may be more exclusive than racists. Compared with traditional values, nationalism and traditional politics mainly focus on cultural conservatives. The two are often closely intertwined and appear in national political debates with the support of “immigration reform” and “family protection”. Cultural conservatives believe in “Buy American” and oppose the introduction of foreign languages such as Spanish or Chinese on interstate signs or ATs. M machine. Cultural conservatives are not necessarily conservatives on all other issues, which is where critics most often attack movements. Because cultural conservatism is not easy to define at first, critics of cultural conservatism tend to point out that there is no inconsistency. For example, cultural conservatives are largely silent on homosexual rights (like Bloom). (Their main concern is the destruction of American tradition by the movement, not the homosexual lifestyle itself), so critics point out that this is inconsistent with the whole conservative movement. – This is not because conservatism generally has such a broad meaning. Cultural conservatism in American common thought has gradually replaced the term “religious rights”, even though they are not exactly the same thing. In fact, social conservatives identify more with religious rights than cultural conservatives. However, cultural conservatives have achieved considerable success at the national level, especially in the 2008 presidential election, where immigration has become the focus of national debate. Cultural conservatives are usually grouped politically with other types of conservatives for the simple reason that the movement does not strictly address “wedge” issues such as abortion, religion and gay rights. Cultural conservatism is often the initiator of the neoconservative movement. When they decide to stand on the “wedge” issue, they want to call themselves “conservative”. Once they can define their beliefs and attitudes, they tend to move away from cultural conservatism and towards another more focused movement.
