I can’t help but think that we need to distinguish between two very different groups of people: those who are conservative for conservatism’s sake, and those who are conservative because of positions they favor.
For example: being against Monarchy as a political system would have been radical during the Enlightenment but is tamely conservative in the modern day; now, being a Monarchist would be radical. Thus, Monarchism isn’t itself a conservative or radical position, but becomes one depending on the context.
