Conservatism is one type of philosophy which ensures the well-being and following of traditions, beliefs, religious feelings, cultural values and values and traditions that are nationally important (Kirk). It is one of the most critical factor in inculcating change for the benefit of the society. There are different levels of conservatism that has been defined by the different researchers and philosophical writers. They have identified the significance of this virtue in today’s world (Robin¸Corey).
The character that we are going to discuss is an American Leader, Stuart Mill. He was the leader of the socialist party and came into reign in 1968. He was very broad minded as compared to other leaders of his time. His way of thinking and philosophy was completely different. He had a firm hold on the ethics and principles which are to be followed while enjoying power in politics.
He helped in maintaining the tradition of the ancient population which was getting replaced by the modern culture. He stressed on overall development of the country and stated that people should be economically, culturally, socially, happy and they should have the understanding of their efforts towards the nation. He identified many behaviours of national importance that were to be carried out by individuals. During his time, it was very difficult for any political party to sustain conservatism owing to the critical war and its effects. He, however, was opposed by many and because of this he was dethroned as he made some changes and reforms related to the social and cultural beliefs of the people. He was however, not disheartened and he continued serving the nation through other departments in his home party.
In this way it can be seen that there are many elements of conservatism that were observed in the character taken by me. The person had many followers, but he fought for religious and cultural reforms is his most significant virtue. He had realized the need to inculcate change in the society through liberalism and this was one of the most revolutionary approach during such times.
