Conserberalism is a joke that Athos and Aramis didn't see the first time around, and then when they finally saw it, they just thought it was just a weird word. Which just goes to show . . . I'm not sure what, exactly. "Had to be there"? "Timing is everything"? "Location, location, location"?
When we first aired the idea of a blog, I wrote something like, "Hey guys, how about this: 'The Three Massketeers: Squaring the Circle of Our Rad Trad Girardian Catholic Conserberalism.'"
And I thought myself pretty darn clever to come up with the word "conserberalism."
Which only goes to show . . . I'm not sure what, exactly. "You're not as funny as you think you are, Porthos"? "What's the punchline"? "Humility, humility, humility"?
Conserberalism a mutant hybrid of conservatism and liberalism. I thought it expressed our cummulative cultural-political-sectarian take. That is, if you took all three of us, shook us up, put us through a blender, and poured the resulting substance out in any of our vintage "All 4 1" commemorative mugs, the resulting mixture would be (among other things) "conserberalism." Each of us is both "liberal" in a somewhat different way from the other two, and "conservative" in a somewhat different way from the other two.
