“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?

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.

What Does The Conservative Gentleman Wear In These Modern Times?

Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - When people are wearing flip flops and camo gear... to Mass, what is the Conservative Gentleman to wear? Well, much like in the political realm, there is not specific guide, but we have history to guide us. We can look back at some of the great conservatives, Russell Kirk and T.S. Elliot for example, to see what they wore, which was mostly suits and ties. Many men's styles were created in the 1930's and these styles are not stuck in those times, you can take the clothing of that era, wear it now, and it is very appropriate. We need to have a revolution not only in our morals and values, but also in our dress.
