Honest question for you DiS indie kid liberal pinkos (i.e., all of you)

are there any aspects of the small-c conservative political/social/philosophical POV you agree with? i ask because i work alongside an extremely lovely but avowedly small-c conservative dude and as someone who cleaves to a quasi-anarchist outlook i figured i’d have nowt in common with dude. turns out we sort of agree on a generally pessimistic view of humans, the idea of humanitarian intervention, and employment-as-state-control. so i’m just wondering in what other ways you/i find surprising common ground with our wacky right-wing pals in these troubled times.

We both want the world to match our political views as possible.
