Neoconservatism emphasizes foreign policy as the paramount responsibility of government, seeing the American role of world's sole superpower as indispensable to establishing and maintaining global order. As neo-con godfather Irving Kristol once said, a neo-conservative is a ''liberal who was mugged by reality.'' Neo-cons generally originated on the left side of the political spectrum and some times from the far left.
A neo-conservative individual tends to philosophically believe in a majority of these political positions. It's not a perfect list, but generalizations of a neo-con leaning philosophy:
> Less skeptical of government than other conservatives
> Less worried about reducing the size of government
> Less enthusiastic about tax cuts
> More concerned about forging national crusades that can spread American patriotism and values or its desire for reform
> Extreme interventionism
> Extremely idealistic foreign policy
> Favor big defense budgets
> Emphasis on democracy building and spreading human rights and freedom
> Spread democracy and liberty where it doesn't exist currently
> Peace is to be distrusted, and peace processes are inherently suspect
> Enemies cannot be negotiated with
> When we have the ability to stop totalitarian regimes we should do so, because when we fail to do so, the results are catastrophic
> War is a natural state, and peace is a utopian dream that induces softness, decadence and pacifism
> Engagement in world affairs is absolutely indispensable in preventing catastrophe
