[PREMIERING 7:30PM ET] Yoram Hazony: Is Liberalism Failing? A Bold New Proposal to Combat Woke Ascendancy
May 24, 2022
This episode will premiere on Tues. May 24 at 7:30 p.m. ET. In the face of an ever more radical left, many on the right seem to have lost sight of what conservatism really is, says political theorist Yoram Hazony, chairman of the Edmund Burke Foundation, president of the Herzl Institute in Jerusalem, and author of the new book “Conservatism: A Rediscovery.” “At someplace along the way, the religion part and the nationalism part dropped out, and what came to be called conservatism is only the freedoms, you know, the freedoms of the market and other individual liberties,” he says. But this myopic focus on maximizing individual freedoms has also led to the decimation of the traditional family and national cohesion, he argues. Conservatism can’t just be about conserving liberty and individual freedom, but rather needs to be grounded in other principles, such as religious faith and nationalism, he says.
