Authoritarianism is, indeed, a primary psychological source of receptivity to fascist ideology, but it may take other ideological forms as well. In fine, the diversity of ways in which conservative views may find expression is itself proof that conservatism is no fixed ideology.

Oregon (2006), in which the Attorney- General of the United States and the Bush administration attempted to effectively nullify Oregon's assisted-suicide law. But consumer choices are tough to link directly to ideology, because marketing and geography also play roles. With that in mind, vaccine skepticism is mostly ecumenical. How could a movement that explicitly sought to defend the rich and to preserve long-standing social hierarchies against the ideals of egalitarianism avoid the charge that it was undemocratic?

Conservative: One who admires radicals a century after they're dead. Ideology may help a social system to achieve greater integration or greater adaptation or adaptive capacity. The results were predictable: these half-a-loaf gestures satisfied neither black nor white Republicans. My own German colleagues talk of the great social and economic integration within their own villages, which may have been easier to devise as a whole after the destruction of WW2 and before the globalised consumer mind-set came in.

Ultimately, He is attempting to convince others that Conservatism is a Mental Illness, or at the least a disability. Eysenck (1954) interprets the data of his research in England as indicating that communists and fascists have in common a high degree of tough-mindedness (a syndrome closely related to dogmatism and authoritarianism).

A �counterfeit� bill looks like a real one, but it�s just a fake, a copy.� It�s not authentic, not genuine, not real.� But there are tests you can perform to determine whether the bill is genuine or a fake.� Well, similarly, if you believe what you believe only because you�ve always been told to believe it, and have never THOROUGHLY explored ALL opposing sides of what you believe in order to reach your OWN independent conclusions, then you have never subjected your beliefs to genuine testing, and thus you have no way of knowing if your beliefs are �real� or instead are merely �counterfeit.�� Now, I admit, that in saying this I am making a value judgment in favor of independent thought, critical thinking, and autonomous (free) moral choice regarding human beliefs.� Your own value system might instead value unthinking conformity and blind obedience to others.� Only you know whether your own value system values humans as free-thinking moral beings, or instead values humans as simply programmed robots.� So ultimately, each of you must make a moral choice: to think or not to think.� The choice is yours.

It is up to us as critical thinkers to make sense of the information, the context, and the missing pieces, knowing that the legitimacy of the policy process is at stake and that we are subject to intense but subtle persuasion, often by interests that lurk in the shadows.
