George Will Defends Conservatism, History, And Civil Liberties
Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist George Will joins Ben Domenech on the Federalist Radio Hour to discuss his new book, “The Conservative Sensibility.” They discuss how the role of government, the case for shared identity, the intellectual differences of the American founders, and how progressivism was advanced by figures like Woodrow Wilson.
“It’s perfectly possible to graduate from a number of American universities, including very distinguished ones, without learning any American history,” Will said. “But American history where it is taught is often a series of indictments of the previous generation for not being as splendid as we are. It’s called presentism.”
