DAILY MUST READ: The Imaginative Conservative #TCOT #WAR


Today I want to draw your attention to a new website I have been reading recently, and is beginning to have a profound impact upon me. It is… The Imaginative Conservative.

It’s purpose is to further the ideas of Russell Kirk who is known for his incredible book, The Conservative Mind, among many others. Kirk had a huge influence on conservative thought in America in the 20th Century, and the site is dedicated to his legacy. It has amazing “reprints” of essays by Kirk, and wonderful discussions of his ideas on how to influence culture.

Reading this site allows me to think more deeply about the fight in which we are engaged, how best to fight it, and what I can do as a “scholar” to engage in that effort to defend the True, the Good, and the Beautiful.

So go there now, visit, and scroll through the essays and read one that you find interesting, or click on a link you like and learn more. Then do it again tomorrow.

You can also find them on Facebook. Go there and LIKE the page. If you are like me, it will become the favorite thing in your news feed, (even better than Grumpy Cat).
