Where Is the Conservatism of the Christian-Democrats?

A quote from Johann Michael Möller in the German newspaper Die Welt, 16 July 2005

Of the three founding pillars of the Union [the Christian-Democratic Party] – social catholicism, market liberalism and national conservatism – only market liberalism remains. [As Gustav Seibt says] German Conservatives are still “half feudal, half-parochial, but not in the least urban.” […] Why does the [Christian-Democratic Party] not make an effort to rediscover the traditions of the age of the middle classes which was essentially urban?
