How Much Liberty Are You Prepared to Renounce in the Current Crisis?

Leading Political Thinker Charles R. Kesler Reveals How Much Is at Stake for America’s Future

By now you might have gotten used to all the COVID-related changes.

But think about what you’ve become inured to:

  • decrees of mayors, governors, and public health officers that carry the weight of law . . . even though no legislatures enacted them and no courts reviewed them
  • intrusive systems of protections created in a panic, with little information to go on
  • mass remedies that impose extraordinary costs on everyone rather than the most at-risk populations

So now Charles R. Kesler, one of America’s most influential political thinkers, has a question for you:

How much personal liberty, due process of law, freedom of association and movement, and constitutional restraint on government are Americans prepared to renounce, or defer?

Join Kesler live on Wednesday, August 26, at 7 p.m. ET as he discusses these issues on Conservative Conversations with ISI.

Dr. Kesler has received the prestigious Bradley Prize and been named one of the Politico 50—the publication’s annual list of the key thinkers reshaping American politics. In this in-depth conversation, he’ll offer a probing look at the future of liberty and constitutional government.
