While liberalism has evolved, conservatives continue to believe in limited government and the fundamental importance of individual responsibility as a motivator to make individuals productive and achieve their potential. They also believe in enduring social norms as guides as to how people should behave if they are to achieve and be self-sufficient. Conservatives have mobilized to oppose changes in liberalism, arguing that liberal presumptions are detrimental to American society.
