Conservatism and liberalism have different understandings of human nature.

“Conservative, n.  A statesman who is enamored of existing evils, as distinguished from the Liberal, who wishes to replace them with others.”

From Ambrose Bierce’s Devil’s Dictionary.  As quoted in Ralph C. Wood, Contending for the Faith, p. 30.
