Life Versus Ideology
The conservative, who values human life above all else, puts people over ideas and ideology. Keeping in mind Descartes' Cogito we recognize the simple truth that, without people, that can be no thinking, no discussion, no rational consideration of the alternatives. The pro-life conservative sees value and dignity even in the lives of his most ardent ideological opponents. A true believing communist is simply another opportunity for conversion. In the course of our lives our thinking changes and can become more mature. People's hearts can be turned around. We are free to make mistakes, but also free to change our minds and alter the course of our lives.
