Conservatism: The CIA's Phony Movement

A Listmania! list by anarchteacher (United States)
The list author says: "What most Americans mistakingly regard today as the "Conservative movement" has undergone many convoluted and dramatic transformations over the past sixty years. Perhaps the most keen observer has been Murray N. Rothbard, the internationally acclaimed economist and historian. How this disinformation process began is detailed in three insightful articles, "Life in the Old Right," "The Foreign Policy of the Old Right," and "The Transformation of the American Right," available online. However, Rothbard's long-awaited book, The Betrayal of the American Right, tells the full story of how this subversive movement at war with American liberties and the rule of law, came about. "Conservatism," since the days of Burke and Robespierre, has stood for the status quo and an apologia for tyranny."
