Conservatism at its core, as Roger Scruton understands it, “tells us that we have collectively inherited good things that we must strive to keep”. It “starts from a sentiment that all mature people can readily share: the sentiment that good things are easily destroyed, but not easily created”. Our inheritance “brings with it not only the rights of ownership, but duties of trusteeship. Things fought for and died for should not be idly squandered. For they are the property of others, who are not yet born” (182).
