19th Century Conservatism v. Liberalism
During the early 19th Century, the terms Conservative and Liberal meant very different things from what they do today. A Conservative looked toward upholding traditional values and government, while a Liberal of the time thought mostly of change and reform.
So, though you may consider yourself one or the other in the modern sense of the word, what are you as of 200 years ago? Would you support long-standing traditions, or would you support the autonomy of diverse ethnic groups? Please note: Understanding of early 19th Century Europe may help in answering questions.
