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

17Nov/12Off

Picks to Click On: What I Read/Wrote This Week

Here are some things that I either wrote myself, or read during the week (and liked enough to encourage you to do the same):

  1. My review of the new Spielberg bio-pic Lincoln.
  2. My review of the new James Bond film Skyfall.
  3. "Bastiat on My Mind" - a post I put up at the Acton Institute's Power Blog on the importance of reading the works of Frederic Bastiat (note: if you don't know who this is, change that immediately!)
  4. Owen Strachan's piece at Patheos, "A Post-Election Letter to Young Evangelicals"
  5. "How the GOP earned it's Date with Destiny" by Mark Steyn (a sobering analysis of the state of the nation after Obama's win)
  6. The latest column from Dr. Victor Davis Hanson (my favorite historian) "Oh, we forgot to tell you..."

I get it that people are busy and don't have the time/interest to scour through all of the various sites/blogs to find what's worth their while, so I'm going to start offering up a few recommendations each weekend here at A Voice in the Wilderness. Let me know what you think of any of these pieces by leaving something in the Comments section below.

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.
