Reader’s Comment of the Day: Only a true conservative movement can halt the State juggernaut


In response to Kathy Gyngell: Rotherham’s child abuse scandal proves again that government is the problem and not the solution, Oliver J.S McMullen wrote:

Just because a majority wants something in no way implies that they should have it. Too many people in this materialistic age are incapable of distinguishing between desire and need. And they are presented with false choices. For instance they want more security so they are fooled into giving up liberty. And yet without liberty there is no security.

When I first heard of this poll my thought was that there is no rational alternative being offered. This underlines the need for a true conservative movement. My second thought was – what questions were asked and how were they framed? One should always bear in mind that polls are as much a means for manipulating public opinion as measuring it.
