Defining Conservatism: The Principles That Will Bring Our Country Backby Jonathan Krohn
Synopses & Reviews
Defining Conservatism is a passionate appeal to a political movement re-examining its identity as Republicans set their sights on 2010 and beyond. A devoted conservative, Jonathan Krohn, presents his philosophy's basic tenets in this remarkably earnest and impeccably reasoned primer. The book, clear and informative, is deeply imbued with both fact and clear-headed wisdom, truly beyond Krohn's age.
In Defining Conservatism, Jonathan Krohn challenges the government expansionists, whose faith in Washington and the basic pillars of government exceeds their faith in the individual. At the same time he boldly stakes out four unshakable principles for conservatives to rally around:
*Respect for the Constitution
*Respect for human life
*Belief in minimalist government
*Insistence on personal responsibility
Defining Conservatism is destined to be a must-read for anyone interested in the political future of our nation.
From a 14-year-old columnist, author, and political analyst comes a clarion call and reasoned argument to conservatives. Krohn offers a passionate appeal to a political movement reexamining its identity as Republicans set their sights on 2010.
From an extraordinary teenage intellectual, a clarion call and reasoned argument to Conservatives
Defining Conservatism is a passionate appeal to a political movement that is re-examining its identity as Republicans set their sights on 2010 and beyond. A dedicated young conservative, Jonathan Krohn presents conservative philoso¬phy’s basic tenets in this remarkably earnest and impeccably reasoned primer. This book, clear and informative, is a history lesson, a manifesto, and a roadmap for the future. It is Krohn’s rallying call to action not just for conservatives, but for anyone interested in the political state of our nation.
In Defining Conservatism, Krohn challenges “government expansionists,” whose faith in Wash¬ington and the basic pillars of government exceeds their faith in the individual. At the same time, he boldly stakes out four unshakeable principles for conservatives to rally around:
? Respect for the Constitution
? Respect for human life
? Belief in minimalist government
? Insistence upon personal responsibility
Anyone interested in the basic differences between conservative and liberal thought will find Krohn’s writing at once compelling, informa¬tive, intelligent, and—for those who do not agree with him—in some respects controversial. Defining Conservatism is a must-read for anyone who is interested in the basic principles upon which the United States was founded, and perhaps most importantly, for anyone who is concerned with the future of this country.
