CREDAL AT THE ROOT:

Conservatism and Ideological Politics (Glen Austin Sproviero, Imaginative Conservative)

Political conservatism must not be tethered to any particular body of inflexible policy goals. It possesses no body of infallible tenets and claims no absolute creed. It accepts the world as an imperfect place, populated by imperfect beings. 

Of course, the fact that conservatism derives from The Fall means that it has an absolute creed.  People of the Right need not believe in God, nor the Fall.  Conservatives must.  All other beliefs are prone to the utopianism, and the adoption of measures designed to realize Utopia, that conservatism rejects utterly.
