Editor’s Note: I’m beginning a new feature on the blog, a category called definitions, where-in I define and explain words that come up in my life, which might be handy for others to use.
Definition: Exhibiting traits of an extremely conservative and past-minded nature, often times for no logical reason, other than told to be so. Particularly, of an arrogant and self-righteous nature. Conservative for conservative’s sake.
Antonym(s): Darwinian, progressive, humble.
Etymology: Having to do with T.E. Darby, VMI, VDOT, and the Anglican Church of America.
Example: “The Henrico County road supervisor is probably some ex-VDOT idiot, likely to be Darbinian in nature.” Angela Dyer
