What Does the Common Good Look Like Now?

Have you heard of “common-good conservatism”?

More and more conservative thinkers are calling for reorienting our perspective toward the common good—and even using government power in pursuit of that good. Others, including libertarians and small-government conservatives, reject this new direction. But still others say the new approach doesn’t go far enough.

How these debates play out will make a huge difference for the future of conservatism . . . and of the country.

But they can be perplexing to follow.

Fortunately, we have the ideal guide to this crucial topic: beloved professor and author Robert P. George.

George is a professor at Princeton University who is hailed as “one of the most incisive legal and moral thinkers working today” (First Things) and America’s “most influential conservative Christian thinker” (New York Times Magazine).

Join us on Thursday, July 2, at 7 p.m. ET for an in-depth interview with George. He will answer such questions as:

  • Just what IS the “common good” anyway?
  • Is the common good compatible with liberty and individual rights?
  • Are there dangers in going too far in pursuit of the common good?
