right to have equal opportunities--> not necessarily equal outcome
based off declaration
main ideas of conservatism
tradition is the source of all authority
absolute monarchies has been successful in the past and are therefore the best form of govt
the belief of equal rights is dangerous because it leads to socail chaos (eg. FR)
community is more important than the individual
what is the Congress of Vienna?
conservative council that met to restore Europe to the way it was (monarchies). tried to suppress the rising liberal and nationalist ideas and equalize European countries

modern: provides social welfare for ppl, regulates economy -LEFT
(provide social welfare=meeting basic needs for ppl in society
what is the evolution from classical to modern conservatism?
classical: maintain traditional values, regulate economy

both believe in absence of govt in economy and NOT providing social welfare
main ideas of nationalism

same basic ideas as liberalism, but define who "the people" are
patriotism for your nation
shifted from connection to country because of culture to a tool of social control

king Louis Philippe establishes constitutional monarchy--> becomes corrupt
ppl revolt and he flees
the second republic is created--> 10-man committee
non-conservatives split--> become moderates & radials
national workshops created (pro-socialist)
June Days Uprising: riots b/c N.W. closed
Napoleon III elected for republic--> becomes corrupt
what is the significance of the June Days Uprising?
because the national workshops, a socialist idea, failed, liberalism seems like a better idea
are the FRs conservative, liberal, or socialist?
when French govt was destroyed, liberals and socialists disagree on what it should be changed to and therefore conservatives come out victorious
story of Italian unification
nationalist stirred up by Napoleon
Mazzini: wants a republic (romanic nationalist and liberal)
Cavour: realpolitik--> used nationalism as a tool of social control, wants constitutional monarchy, drives out Austrians occupying Italy
Garibaldi: united Italy from the south, wanted constitutional monarchy
story of German unification
Arndt: early German romantic nationalist, had idea of the German "volk"

Germans started to rebel
king of Prussia stops them w/ the promise of unity--> created the Frankfurt Parliament (ineffective)
king appoints Bismarck as prime minister
united germany w/ realpolitik methods-- used war and nationalism as a tool
united it bc of his want for power
how did Bismarck redefine nationalism as a means of conservative control?
changed what is meant to be "German"--> loyal to the state
catholics & socialists posed the greatest threat to unification, so they were obviously not loyal to German state and therefore not German
his definition gives him the most power b/c the most possible amount of ppl that could be loyal to him that would not harm his power are covered under the definition
how is the Civil War an example of a nationalist movement?
before CW, US was not a nation, just a state because not everyone was bonded under a common culture--> difference btw north and south
example--> if north succeeds, nationalism succeeds
