best question on conservatism would be "to what extent is it a philosophy of imperfection" kinda question 😭, I don't like pragmatism or principle not enough points to write, your guesses on liberalism & anarchism?

I do think pragmatism is pretty good. Just have a good understanding of the conservatives in the post war consensus when they adopted Keynesian (socialist) principles In order to appeal to the public and as a response to change (depression hungry 30's had just passed.) Then your however could be thatcher's adoption of new right policies inspired by Von Hayek and the American economist Milton Friedman? I think and then talk about how she was deeply ideological curbing the powers of the unions, privatisations, deregulation etc. But then you can counter argue that by saying that David Cameron is basically a return to pragmatism and talk about his support of gay rights and stuff also about big society. So I do think there's stuff to talk about. Still need to go over it myself but those are the points I remember from the top of my head. I'm not doing liberalism. I'm risking revising just conservatism and fascism so if there's bad questions on any of those I'm screwed..

Agree with the socialism I think it's too bland and boring. Liberalism is okay but I prefer sticking to conservatism and fascism. Fascism is really interesting it's all about myths and rejection of human reason. It's interesting and easy to grasp.

Most worried about this exam to be honest. I know a lot of the stuff but reading through the mark schemes make it sound like there's so much stuff you need for those higher marks.

Our college doesn't teach fascism, just the rest. I hope a conservative question comes up on pragmatism. There is so much to write on it. For example

Pragmatic:
-One Nation Conservatism. Disraeli making his party electable after the 1867 Reform Act
-Post War- Age of Consensus
- Heath's U-turn on his 1970 manifesto and Snelsdon programme
-Although Thatcher was more ideological she did not commit to some of the extreme ideas advocated by Keith Joseph
-Cameron, more liberal policies and the fact that he is in a coalition.

Against:
-Been described as an unequivocal idealogy in that it does not believe in the perfectibility of humans
-Thatchers Neo-Liberal reforms and social authoritarianism
-Opposition to removal of traditional institutions

Usually either how ideologically cohesive the party is (last year) or if it promotes traditional tory values

I really like the Socalism topic - easy to understand and its a useful topic to gain a lot of marks on.

I think you guys are underestimating Liberalism - there's a certain chance that it may come.

When it means pragmatic - what do you guys think of it as?

Wasn't Keynes a liberal? He was into managed capitalism to increase employment and stuff like that wasn't he?

I thought that went reasonably well, to be honest. Did Socialism and Conservatism. Thought I nailed socialism. Could have done a little better on the Conservatism 30 marker.
