    One thought on “The Conservative Sensibility

    1. David Wineberg on said:

      If there is anyone on Earth who can rationally explain the conservative movement in the USA, it is George Will Highly principled, extraordinarily erudite and calmly eloquent, Will has taken on this job love in The Conservative Sensibility There is an enormous amount of thought and analysis here Will deconstructs sentences, picks out individual words for scrutiny, and when necessary, looks at greater context Numerous paragraphs revolve around a single word from something someone said or wrote If [...]

    2. Daddy-O on said:

      The Conservative Sensibility is partly about the premises of American Conservatism, partly about George Will s personal opinions that have little to do with Conservatism The chapters that summarize the Conservative approach to civilization are beautiful we have Hayekian knowledge of the dangerous futility of statist fine tuning, we have the ageless genius of the founders vision based in natural rights, we have the role of American exceptionalism in a global world, etcetera These are grea [...]

    3. Jeffrey on said:

      This was probably the single greatest book on politics I have ever read The writing was amazing and it was packed with information You learn in one book as much as reading 4 or 5 books on politics history.I m not a fan or hater of Mr Will, I m slightly conservative but enjoy reading about everything The book was not polemical It s not like reading a book by Ann Colter or Rush Limbaugh It s about political philosophy and history It s not about convincing you to vote for so and so or b This was pr [...]

    4. Joshua on said:

      This book was revelatory and frustrating It s the most illuminating thing I ve read about American conservatism which Will describes as a sensibility rather than a philosophy or ideology It is also a sharp critique of progressivism, and effectively raises many of the contradictions of that sensibility, mostly around how entrusting government with power creates the potential for abuse This is a real issue, and isn t necessarily partisan Will s opposition to executive power is essentia This book w [...]

    5. Jay on said:

      Most of this book was excellent The chapter on atheism was the weakest Mr Will s atheism seems to come cheaply and without the intellectual rigor of the rest of the book Without divine revelations, what difference does the answer was made or just happened really make p 457 It turns out quite a bit And Mr Will s failure to recognize that is a significant flaw A utilitarian argument for the exceptional natural rights Americans enjoy freedom of speech, religion, assembly, et Most of this book was e [...]

    6. Scott Pierce on said:

      5 stars for anyone who wants some sense of what modern conservatism is, or should aspire to, at least as perceived by one of the leaders of the movement and a writer and commentator of massive intelligence The book is both descriptive and prescriptive offering a path though unlikely to be taken to saving the republic American conservatism has a clear mission It is to conserve, by articulating and demonstrating the continuing pertinence of, the Founders thinking The price of accuracy m 5 stars fo [...]

    7. Michael on said:

      Governments do not exist to dispense rights, but to secure the natural rights that we hold by virtue of our humanity That proposition was the intellectual foundation of the Founders when establishing our country in the late eighteenth century Over the past century, though this and other founding principles have undergone a steady erosion In The Conservative Sensibility, George Will makes the case for a return to the classical liberalism of the Founding.Will describes how our founding princi Gove [...]
