The Conservative Sensibility
George F. Will
Over a long career as a syndicated columnist, George F. Will has made it his life’s work to espouse the virtues of conservatism and apply its principles to present debates. In his new book The Conservative Sensibility, the Pulitzer Prize winner synthesizes his wisdom into a compelling account of the American conservative tradition—and argues that virtually all our political debates can be understood as a battle between the visions of James Madison and Woodrow Wilson.
This week, Richard Aldous and George Will discuss conservatism in all its complexities. Can a revolution be conservative? Can populism? What distinguishes the British and American traditions of conservative thought—and where does Donald Trump fit into the picture?
