What is Conservatism? (Author Interview: Dr. George H. Nash)

by Christopher N. Malagisi

Dr. George H. Nash is considered to be the preeminent conservative historian in the country and is given credit to be one of the first to provide a scholarly analysis of the most consequential political movement in modern American history – conservatism.  In our in-depth exclusive podcast author interview with Dr. Nash, he discusses the intellectual roots of conservatism, while also celebrating the 40th anniversary of his seminal book, The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America Since 1945.

Like myself, and many other conservative activists, most learned of the rich intellectual heritage of conservatism through the “Gospel of Nash.”  in particular, the first part of the book dedicated to understanding the disparate groups that make up the conservative movement, and how William F. Buckley, Jr. and Frank Meyer fused the three legs of the modern conservative movement – Classical Liberalism or Libertarianism, Traditionalists, and Anticommunists, to become the force it is today.

In our feature author interview below, listen to learn about the origins of the conservative movement, what groups make up the modern conservative movement, and what is the future of conservatism in America, while also learning how Donald Trump fits into the mix.

    What do conservative’s do when their conservative legislature becomes money grubbing, bribery laced, fascist. They. Elect a presidential candidate that they believe they can trust and is truthful, who say’s the things they want from their federal Goverment , whether every thing he say’s in completely conservative or not , but they believe he will fight their battle, and do what he promises. Trump completing 1/3 of what he promises would make him the most Sucessful republican President since Ronald Reagan. Reagan had to deal with liberal Democrat legislature to get his job done. Trump will have to deal with a tratious, backstabbing , two faced, lying bunch of traitors regardless of which party wins the legislature. I believe they will be RINO, tratious Republican’s.
