Roger Scruton on Conservatism

"It's much easier to be against things than for them. To be against things, you just have to point out their faults and say: 'We want the alternative'. You don't have to define the alternative. Whereas if you're actually defending existing things, you're in a much more difficult position."

Obvious, perhaps. But true.
