Conservatism in Hakka, also called Hakkai Islamism or Yusufism, had played an important role in Hakkai politics throughout its existence in mid-2010. In sharp contrast to the conservatism of the United States, which bordered Hakka, Hakkai conservatives were more likely to favor socialist or syndicalist economics and oppose capitalism. Tianan historian Joseph Puglisi identifies multiple characteristics of Hakkai conservatism: "respect for tradition, anti-capitalism, Islamic fundamentalism, anti-secularism, monarchism, and extreme nationalism". In foreign policy, Hakkai conservatives tended towards militarism and militant isolationism, fiercely opposing globalization.

Positions

Economics

Hakkai conservatives were almost universally anti-capitalist, and can be seen to have adopted a socialist interpretation of Qu'ranic economics. While most took state socialist positions in favor of mass nationalization of business, others adopted a more syndicalist view. Hakkai conservatives' brand of Islamic socialism is comparable to Ba'athism.

Religion

Hakkai conservatism was an Islamist ideology, and Hakkai conservatives were fervently opposed to secularism, which was seen as a threat to Islamic political domination of Hakka.

Foreign policy

Hakkai conservatives were proponents of militarism and militant isolationism. Hakkai conservatives were greatly divided on the issue of the Pongonesian War, which some saw as a Jihad in defence of the Islamic character of Hakka, and others saw as a breach of the policy of isolationism.

Relation to other ideologies

Hakkai conservatism was one of the two primary political ideologies in Hakka, opposed to Hakkai reformism.
