Example text

La Grande-Bretagne et l’Amérique sont entrées dans la modernité dotées d’une conscience aiguë de leur histoire commune8. Le conservatisme est donc très lié, dans ce contexte, au droit commun, et au fait que celui-ci est préservé en grande partie par des coutumes plutôt que par l’écrit. En Grande-Bretagne, si le parti « Tory » apparaît en tant que tel en 1832, l’expression désignait déjà les partisans de la monarchie depuis la deuxième moitié du XVIIe siècle. En France, explique Alain Besançon, « le terme [de conservateur] date du XIXe siècle : c’est un concept qui suppose la Révolution française ».

En revanche, cette définition littérale vient corroborer la distinction entre le pur – l’émancipation – et l’impur – l’adhérence – proposée par d’Iribarne. Ainsi, certains corporatismes – de métiers, de lieux par exemple – se retrouvent en complet porte-à-faux avec la vision mythique d’une société, faite, rappelle d’Iribarne, d’« un corps politique régi par les idéaux de liberté et d’égalité » et accompli par le suffrage universel. Cette vision mythique de l’organisation de la société doit subir de perpétuels compromis avec un corps social, fondé lui sur une tout autre vision, attentive à la condition sociale de chacun.

Surtout, cette réponse me frappa comme tout à fait révélatrice de l’attitude de la droite française. 3 Tout dépend, bien entendu, de ce qu’on entend par le conservatisme. C’est tout l’objet de cet ouvrage, où j’en propose une définition à la fois personnelle et fidèle, je l’espère, à une grande partie de son incarnation historique en Europe. Posons simplement comme définition initiale, pour plus de clarté, que le conservatisme est une vision du monde qui cherche à concilier, pour le bon fonctionnement de la société, l’autorité et la liberté, par l’intermédiaire d’institutions indépendantes, qu’il faut dès lors entretenir, préserver et transmettre.
