Very illuminating (damning?). Lots more about this from the Guardian.
A nice example of how conservative attitudes cross over into outright dehumanisation. A relevant quote:
"The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness."
— John Kenneth Galbraith
I might observe that a precise definition, per Yasmin's experience, would include the search for immoral justifications as well (I'm talking about racism, in case you didn't get that).
