The Imaginative Conservative began the week with Bradley Green’s look at the state of American governance and his hope for its resurrection through Political Patience and Christian Hope. The Architect (Matrix Reloaded) provided us with a few more words on Hope: Strength or Weakness?. Then we immersed ourselves in the brilliant prose of George Orwell as he celebrated spiritual hope and rebirth through an understanding of the cycle of nature in Some Thoughts on the Common Toad. Robert C. Koons shifted us away from the hope and light of a spring day to the Dark Satanic Mills of Mis-Education: Some Proposals for Reform.
Books related to the above essays and others filled with conservative wit and wisdom may be found in The Imaginative Conservative Bookstore.
We hope you will join us in The Imaginative Conservative community. The Imaginative Conservative is an on-line journal for those who seek the True, the Good and the Beautiful. We address culture, liberal learning, politics, political economy, literature, the arts and the American Republic in the tradition of Russell Kirk, T.S. Eliot, Edmund Burke, Irving Babbitt, Paul Elmer More, Wilhelm Roepke, Robert Nisbet, M.E. Bradford, Eric Voegelin, Christopher Dawson and other leaders of Imaginative Conservatism.
