This week The Imaginative Conservative provided a thoughtful look at the world of economics and government, world and American history, politics, classic literature, culture, Christianity, and the moral imagination. Pour a cup of coffee, light a pipe, and immerse yourself in the wit and wisdom of these essays.

Books on the people and topics discussed in these essays may be found in The Imaginative Conservative Bookstore.

  1. Andrew Bacevich: Conservatives need less Arn Rand and more Flannery O’Connor. As I read quickly this article,I felt a liberal intent being accepted for those in need,balanced by Those in need must do their part too! If that sounds acceptable,then as I say,The MFGs in our country should market good quality products,minus frills at an extremely low rate for those of us earning 12,ooo to 30,ooo a yr! Welfare can then afford that price also! The low wagers will have money for the low cost goods! The better off wage earners will buy products in their braket and so on to the really well off! You might say, we Americans choose to buy in our earnibg wage braket to keep our economy strong! Now, the ability to better one’s selve is hinged on what we strive for,and not what we manipulate others into giving us! A bit far out when I mentioned it to some people,but it’s my idea of American Patriotism!
