I'm Confused

When did 'liberalism' become synonymous with selfishness?
Or 'conservatism' become equated with altruism?
Sher the fuck not the way I've experienced it...
Still folks quote--with apparent approval--this piece of Churchillian codswallop:
Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has no heart; and any man who is over 30, and is not a conservative, has no brains.
Of course, Churchill was essentially a crypto-fascist working for a putatively democratic Government and so was himself fundamentally conflicted.
