“Conservatives are progressives driving the speed limit”

"Conservatism is progressivism driving the speed limit” (also, “Conservatives are progressives driving the speed limit") is a catchphrase of Ukrainian-American author and podcaster Michael Malice. The saying means that conservatives actually go in the same direction as progressives (and that direction is toward socialism), but that the conservatives just get there a little slower. Conservatives do not stop or go in the opposite direction.

“Correct, conservatism is progressivism driving the speed limit” was posted on Twitter by Michael Malice on June 1, 2017. “Conservatives are progressives driving the speed limit” was posted on Twitter by Michael Malice on June 3, 2017. “Conservatism is progressivism driving the speed limit” was posted on Twitter by Michael Malice on June 17, 2017. “Conservatism is progressivism driving the speed limit, drunkenly” was posted on Twitter by Michael Malice on March 4, 2018.

Malice was asked to explain the saying. “yes, progressivism is full speed ahead socialism. conservatism is the speed limit” was posted on Twitter by Michael Malice on March 23, 2018.

Why conservatives need to stop driving the speed limit
In a country where roughly half of the citizens are conservative, why are conservatives simply slowing down the rate at which these things change, instead of stopping or reversing them?

Michael Malice, a self-described anarchist, said that “conservatism is progressivism driving the speed limit,” and that statement has stuck with me for a while now. It simultaneously seems very wrong, and yet also very true. It seems wrong in that I do think that conservatism has very different principles and end goals than progressivism, and yet the right inevitably seems to be dragged alongside the leftward shift of the country over time.

These are ideas we rejected in the bipartisan agreement on principles for gun-related legislation announced yesterday.  Why?  Because we knew that if they were included, the bill would not command the votes needed for passage.
