Conservative liberalism

Conservative liberalism is a variant of liberalism, combining liberal values and policies with conservative stances, or representing the right wing of the liberal movement. It is a less radical variant of classical liberalism. Conservative liberal parties tend to combine liberal policies with more traditional stances on social and ethical issues. Neoconservatism has been identified as an ideological relative or twin to conservative liberalism, some similarities exist between conservative liberalism and national liberalism. "Instead of following progressive liberalism," Robert Kraynak, a professor at Colgate University, writes, "conservative liberals draw upon pre-modern sources, such as classical philosophy and ancient institutions. This gives their liberalism a conservative foundation, it means following Plato, Aristotle, St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, Edmund Burke rather than Locke or Kant. But, as realists, conservative liberals acknowledge that classical and medieval politics cannot be restored in the modern world.

And, as moralists, they see that the modern experiment in liberty and self-government has the positive effect of enhancing human dignity as well as providing an opening for transcendent longings for eternity. At its practical best, conservative liberalism promotes ordered liberty under God and establishes constitutional safeguards against tyranny, it shows that a regime of liberty based on traditional morality and classical-Christian culture is an achievement we can be proud of, rather than defensive about, as trustees of Western civilization". In the European context, conservative liberalism should not be confused with liberal conservatism, a variant of conservatism combining conservative views with liberal policies in regards to the economy and ethical issues; the roots of conservative liberalism are to be found at the beginning of the history of liberalism. Until the two world wars, in most European countries the political class was formed by conservative liberals, from Germany to Italy.

The events such as World War I occurring after 1917 brought the more radical version of classical liberalism to a more conservative type of liberalism. Conservative liberal parties have tended to develop in those European countries where there was no strong secular conservative party and where the separation of church and state was less of an issue. In those countries, where the conservative parties were Christian democratic, this conservative brand of liberalism developed. In the United States neoconservatives might be classified as conservative liberals, according to Peter Lawler, a professor at Berry College: "n America today, responsible liberals—who are called neoconservatives—see that liberalism depends on human beings who are somewhat child-centered and religious; these responsible liberals praise these non-individualistic human propensities in an effort to shore up liberalism. One of their slogans is'conservative sociology with liberal politics.' The neoconservatives recognize that the politics of free and rational individuals depends upon a pre-political social world, far from free and rational as a whole".

In the U. S. context, conservative liberalism as well as liberal conservatism should not be confused with libertarian conservatism, influenced by right-libertarianism.

Tingakrossur was a Faroese newspaper. The first copy of the paper was published on January 1, 1901 and it ceased publication in 1990, it was not published between 1955 and 1959. Although the newspaper was written in Danish, it was autonomy oriented, it became the organ and party newspaper of the Home Rule Party in 1906; the avowed purpose of the paper was to promote fight against oppression. Poetry and prose held a central place in the newspaper, the first Faroese novel, Rasmus Rasmussen's Babelstornið, was published serially in it; the newspaper's name comes from the Faroese common noun tingakrossur'bidding stick'. A cross-shaped bidding stick was carried to summon people to the Løgting at Tinganes. Many of the newspaper's editors were leading politicians in the Home Rule Party.

Mora–Siljan Airport

"MXX" redirects here. It is the Roman numeral for 1020. Mora–Siljan Airport is located about 7 km or 3.3 NM southwest of Mora, Sweden. Its fixed-base operator, AB Dalaflyget, which operates Dala Airport, consists of the municipalities of Mora, Borlänge and Dalarna County, in Central Sweden. Dalaflyget provides air traffic control services; the 45 m wide runway and parking can accommodate Boeing 737-type airliners. The number of passengers fell from about 50,000 passengers per year in the 1980s to 7,000 in recent years, following a trend experienced during this period by all Swedish third-level airports. Competition between two domestic airlines, Skyways Express and the defunct European Executive Express, came to an end in 2005, leaving the area without flights to Stockholm and the outside world, requiring a 4-hour drive or train travel. Mora Municipality managed the airport. From 2016 until 2018 AIS Airlines operated the line to Stockholm. On 28 February 2018, the route to Stockholm Arlanda was canceled, since the Swedish Transport Administration, which procured the Arlanda–Sveg route, did not accept the line being combined with the Arlanda–Mora route.

This has been processed in court and appealed to the EU Commission, which gave the Swedish Transport Administration the right to have their agreements for themselves. Mora Municipality has chosen not to procure its own line because it would mean higher costs; the train is considered a future means of transport, unless the government gives directions to the Swedish Transport Administration to procure the line. The Transport Administration only procured air routes where alternative transport to central Stockholm takes over four hours, the train takes less for Mora; the new Sälen-Trysil Airport which opened in December 2019 has taken over the winter tourist flights. The last scheduled flights went to and from Ängelholm in March 2019. List of the largest airports in the Nordic countries Official site Airport information for ESKM at World Aero Data.
