conservatism is a partially heritable personality trait that predisposes some people to be cognitively inflexible, fond of hierarchy, and inordinately afraid of uncertainty, change, and death.

Heh. It's not the whole story, and it's certainly possible not to be conservative without being insecure, but there's something to this.
