“No Conservatism Without a Religious Foundation” – Russell Kirk

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Russell Kirk asked, "Can there be any robust conservatism in American life WITHOUT a religious devotion?" The answer is a resounding "No". He also wrote that a society that denies religion also lacks faith, charity, and compassion and "When a nation ignores the divine authority, it soon commits the excesses of fanatic nationalism, intoxicated with its own unchecked power, which have made the twentieth century terrible." He wrote this back in 1957, how do you think he would feel now? With everyone clamouring for one-size-fits-all solutions for everything from gun laws to abortions and America having troops in practically every country on the planet?

Is There Any Place For True Conservatism?

Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – Is there anything worth conserving anymore, anything? I don’t mind having the debate, but it seems to me that the continued issues of these provocative things is in and of itself exactly what we used to accuse the progressives of. You just keep pushing and pushing until you finally get your way.

Brad Birzer: TS Eliot Saw the Decline Coming Seventy Years Ago

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Audio and Transcript - I want to read something to you. My good friend Dr. Brad Birzer, professor in history at the Hillsdale College and a gentleman and a scholar in his own right, one of the good guys out there in [r]epublicanism and in conservatism, posts at one of our favorite online blogs The Imaginative Conservative, under the title “A New Dark Age.” He’s writing about T.S. Eliot, who in 1948 assumed that Western civilization was moving inexorably toward a new dark age. Check out today's Daily Clip and transcript for more...

What is Conservatism? According to Russell Kirk It’s A Set of Principles, Not Party Politics.

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Conservatism isn't about political parties or even politics in general. Simply put, it's about conserving the good things in one's life. Conserving your family, relationships with friends, culture, history, community, nature, etc. You wouldn't try to conserve the bad or evil things in your life would you? Russell Kirk gives us ten principles that we should follow as conservatives, and not too surprisingly if you listen to this show, none of them directly involve politics. They can certainly be applied to the way you think about politics, and they should, but they aren't a set a laws you must follow to be a member of the GOP.
