Rod Dreher on ‘tradcons’ and libertarians
A tradcon could not affirm that human beings are the best judges of what is best for themselves, because he is aware of the distorting effect of the Fall (which is to say, mankind's intrinsic imperfection). This is not to say that tradcons favor an authoritarian state. Ideally, the people will make proper use of their liberty to make virtuous choices. It is generally the case that in a pluralistic secular society like our own, the only way tradcons can carve out a space for themselves and their communities is through a libertarian order.
