Who gets to speak for conservatism in 2021 and beyond?
That’s a question on a lot of people’s minds. We’re hearing new ideas and rethinking old pieties.
And in a major debate on Saturday night, March 6, you can watch five prominent figures make their case for the ideas that should guide the American right.
By design, the five debaters represent very different perspectives. So that means you (and everyone else in the audience) will hear lots of things you don’t agree with.
But the debaters represent philosophies that have profoundly influenced American conservatism in recent decades and continue to shape major institutions today.
Should those positions hold similar sway in conservatism in 2021 and beyond? Tune in at 7:30 p.m. ET on March 6 to hear the five debaters make their case.
- Charles C. W. Cooke, NationalReview.com editor and author of The Conservatarian Manifesto
- Ross Douthat, New York Times columnist
- William Kristol, director of Defending Democracy Together, cofounder of the Weekly Standard
- Katherine Mangu-Ward, Reason editor in chief
- Daniel McCarthy, Modern Age editor
The Intercollegiate Studies Institute works with thousands of college students each year. With so much noise out there, young people have a hard time making sense of where conservatism is heading—or where it should be heading.
This debate them will give them a clearer understanding of how they should apply their principles to the world today.
It will help you make sense of a complex and contentious situation, too.
Donald Trump is no longer president. But that doesn’t mean conservatives can roll back the clock to 1980 or 1964.
So what ideas should guide conservatives today?
This is the debate conservatism needs now. Forget polls and posturing and political calculations. This is about the principles that conservatives should steer by . . .
. . . and about the very nature of conservatism.
This debate will air live on Saturday, March 6, at 7:30 p.m. ET. It is part of the Diana Davis Spencer Debate Series presented by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute.
