Helen Rittelmeyer on Punk Rock Conservatism
"Am I right in assuming that everyone finds the punk rock story compelling?" she asks — Punk Rock is Conservative; Conservatism is Punk Rock. What I find most compelling, and most conservative, about the "punk rock story" is its DIY ethic, which "questions the supposed uniqueness of the expert's skills, and promotes the ability of the ordinary person to learn to do more than he or she thought was possible." It is, if anything, Distributivism.
