Conservatism And Its Discontents

  A few additional notes regarding George Hawley’s fascinating look at dissent within the right: Notwithstanding the Trump Ascendancy, his belief that moderate libertarianism-or conservatarianism, as some have dubbed it-will exert the greatest influence over mainstream conservatism in the years ahead holds some merit.
