    Brainwashing, propaganda, doublethink, rural poverty, gullibility, egotism, fear, arrogance, stress build up, and privilege are a few causes.

    Nothing is as it seems, people working together conservatively was actually the beginning. Go look at life in Amish towns. They work together, Tho they are getting away from it more too. They tend to perform as a group of people with collective goals. Today's conservatives rather design more towards doing for yourself to achieve your own goals... The biggest problem in this thinking, is that it doesn't even possibly work that way. You took a great working machine of the past, and started to change it so that it only supports self motivated individuals. The reality tho is, that we all do depend on each other. When systems fail, things can collapse like dominoes. All the people who got laid off in one wave, stopped buying the things they usually do, and then the people who made those things slowly get laid off in another wave, and it can continue that way until the machine stops... It's the balance & scales that was mentioned in revelations. You aren't doing for yourself, nobody is, it doesn't exist... The machine works better only when we behave collectively.  That way, when hard times strike, everyone is in on the repair, everything that needs to be done to survive will get done, and we won't even have to depend on government spending to make it all happen. You'll know you're neighbors, and they'll know you. Solutions will be made aware much faster... So today's conservatives were really just tricked into thinking that greed is no longer a sin so long as everyone can be greedy. It doesn't work that way tho, selfish desires will come to collect their wages sooner or later. That's definitely one of the struggles we are facing down in society today.

    I would say it all starts with Natural Rights. The belief that all humans are born with unalienable rights.

    Someone who is afraid of change and wants to live in stagnation or desires to live in a gone by era. Prefers past over the future. Refuses to adept to changing times.
