Other Title
Directions: American society at the crossroads
In his panel discussion, Kirk talks about the conservative trend in politics that has arisen over the last 15 years (in both political parties), showing examples in the notable presidential candidates (Johnson, Kennedy, and McCarthy). He expresses hopes that when this new conservatism begins to work itself into policy, it will prove to be a positive sort of conservatism, stronger than previously and than the current liberal strain in politics that got us into Vietnam. He ends with an illustration from B.C.E. Greece as a warning to America that great countries can fall.
