Notice how little difference is apparent, by virtue of this representation, between the statist aspiration of Modern Liberalism vs Modern Conservatism …
Especially since we are headed there anyway….
Don’t forget that a big part of 4GW ‘winning’ involves convincing non-combatants that they will be better off with Team Insurgent than with Team Tyrant.

“Let me now state what seems to me the decisive objection to any conservatism which deserves to be called such. It is that by its very nature it cannot offer an alternative to the direction in which we are moving. It may succeed by its resistance to current tendencies in slowing down undesirable developments, but, since it does not indicate another direction, it cannot prevent their continuance. It has, for this reason, invariably been the fate of conservatism to be dragged along a path not of its own choosing. The tug of war between conservatives and progressives can only affect the speed, not the direction, of contemporary developments.”
– FA Hayek, Why I’m Not a Conservative (1960)
