Conservatives are inherently a reactive movement, we cede the initiative to the progs and get surprised when they give use the runaround.

And yet ironically, the "reactionaries" seem to consistently hold the same views for centuries, always correct and yet always impotent...

I place reactionaries in a different category than conservatives through related. Conservatives like slow measured experimentation while reactionaries want a return to a previous state.

Reactionary movements can often end up quite progressive, attempting to enact wide reaching changes.
