"For conservatives, 'liberty' is only possible under the 'right' institutional order, and this order requires a particular moral fabric. Thus, it is easy to see why conservatism often views moral interventionism by the State as a necessity. Conservatives may give nod to 'free markets' and 'civil society,' but these institutions, from the conservative point of view, require 'moral institutions,' such as the 'traditional family,' in order to function properly (or at all)."
