I'm wondering why those who dislike liberalism so commonly view conservatism as the antidote to liberalism? I do not understand this, for the following reason: It does not make sense to me that the answer to a perceived form of extremism (liberalism) is another form of extremism (conservatism); rather, it seems to me that the answer to extremism (of any kind) is moderation. Is this not the case? I give you an example (and I don't mean to change the subject -- this is just meant to be one example): Fox News claims that it is the answer to the liberal mainstream media. But it makes no sense to me that the answer to liberal-biased media ought to be conservative-biased media. Should not the answer really be no-biased media (i.e., moderate, objective, dispassionate, neutral media)? In short, why conservatism over liberalism and not moderation over liberalism?
