What distinguishes conservatives and liberals

Armando at dailyKos had an interesting piece yesterday that's worth a read, arguing that the difference is in the relative emphasis on the protection of the individual versus protection of his property. It does a good job of explaining differing stances on many fronts, from eminent domain to control over abortion decisions.

Most succinctly I've seen it put:

liberals favor human rights over property rights; conservatives favor property rights over human rights.
