I'm starting to question how much sociology @humbledman has actually taken, since they seem adamant on it not being a statistical discipline, despite statistics being a major part of generating and supporting /refuting social theories. I'm also curious why they are framing the argument as sociology versus conservatism. One is a field of study (where people may have political leanings), but the other is only a political philosophy. That's like contesting marine biology with anarcho-monarchism. And equally as silly.
