Liberalism is entering its twilight years. Intellectually discredited, morally bankrupt, and rapidly losing its grip on political power - the Progressive ideology that produced communism and fascism, as well as the modern welfare nanny state, has finally exhausted the reserves that gave it life. In short, it's a spent force.
This does not mean that Liberalism will go quietly. Rather, it's much more likely that it will end, not with a whimper, but a bang - a Liberal Supernova. Desperation is a powerful force. Thus, Liberalism's last fits and gasps can be expected to become more irrational and aggressive as it nears its end.
This is not a cause for celebration, but a call to arms. Nothing is inevitable in history. Conservatism must go on the offensive to counter the coming wave of attacks. A revitalized Conservatism must continue to defend the permanent things, but also confront its intellectual adversaries. Conservative historical revisionism, new ideas and policy proposals, investigative journalism, and a better appreciation and radical devotion to our nation's founding principles are required to triumph in the coming ideological struggle. The goal is to demolish the failed Liberal experiment of the last century root and branch, and replace it with a modern Conservatism.
So, let's begin to discuss and debate the ideas, principles, and future course of Conservative thought. Broadside Books has assembled some of the leading thinkers and doers of the conservative movement for a symposium to identify Liberalism's greatest vulnerabilities and determine where and how to wage the War Against Liberalism. The symposium seeks to answer one significant question:Where and how should Conservatives attack Liberalism next?
