Political scientist, Senior Fellow of the Claremont Institute, author of many books, essays, and columns, including (with William F. Buckley) Keeping the Tablets: Readings in American Conservatism
|The abandonment of natural right imperils both property rights and popular virtue, freedom and morality, limited government and good government. Unfortunately, many conservatives ... have renounced the central principles of the American founding, leaving conservatism in many respects almost indistinguishable from liberalism. If in the next century the United States is to regain its republican spirit and rescue constitutional government from its new nullifiers and secessionists, then the conservative movement will first have to rediscover what about America it is trying, after all, to conserve.|
