To clarify. There is nothing conservative about my views. As an
enthusiastic liberal back when I was doing my undergraduate degree in 1985,
I eventually saw the hypocrisy of my "liberal" friends and colleagues who
were, in reality, every bit as "conservative" (if not more so) than the
mainstream conservatism that they were trying to reject. I became irritated
with the fashion of liberalism and the jollity and bonhomie by which they
defined and asserted their rules of proper behavior. The drugs they used
and the people they fucked had nothing whatsoever to do with freedom, and
everything to do with peer pressure and the cowardice of conformity.
Thus I've made for myself a third option. It is one that does not fit in
with mainstream notions of either liberalism or conservatism. Does that
make me a religious conservative?
