In spite of its emptiness, neoliberalism is an ideology with some curious characteristics, which deserve to be scrutinised. One of them is that neoliberalism has been associated with conservatism, though neoliberal policies such as deregulation and free trade threaten traditions and conventional communities which conservatives respect. However, conservatives in the nineteenth century were opposed to classical liberalism, an ancestor of neoliberalism. They proposed the paternalistic role of the government and the elites. I argue that the ability of the elites, whose paternalistic role, conservatives have for long expected, has degenerated and they came to accept neoliberalism as a principle of governance. As a result, conservatism has married neoliberalism since the 1980s, however, the failure of global capitalism justified by neoliberalism is now obvious. We should be reminded of the original and true meaning of conservatism.
