A Voice in the Wilderness In Defense of "Mere Conservatism"

5Oct/11Off

Arthur Brooks: Part 1

When I think of Dr. Arthur C. Brooks (President, American Enterprise Institute), there's one particular quote that comes to mind.

"Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and place. He fits right in there."  -The Big Lebowski

His intellectual prescriptions for what ails our economy and culture are just what the doctor ordered, and we were honored to have him join us for a lively interview this week on The R.J. Moeller Show. We chatted about his books (Gross National Happiness, Who Really Cares?, and The Battle), the problem with public-sector unions, and our mutual beard-growing initiatives.

But prior to my conversation with Dr. Brooks, and to kick Part 1 off, our news-guy Matt and I discussed Chris Christie and Rob Bell with Values & Capitalism project manager Eric Teetsel.

What is “Mere Conservatism”?

The basic ideas, ideals, and values that generally define and characterize the central tenets of what today might be termed "modern conservative thought."

We believe that a proper understanding of history, economics, and theology leads to certain conclusions. Many of these are the same conclusions our Founding Fathers arrived at in constructing a "more perfect union."

All ideas and opinions are welcome; not all are correct.
