Charles Kesler is one of the few conservatives to transcend the factionalism that distracts us from our problems. He ably connects the legacy of conservative thought to the situation of the present, and he does it with wit and good cheer. This volume is an essential corrective for our desperately distracted time.

Charles Kesler is one of America’s foremost conservative intellectuals, and in this hard-hitting, thought-provoking but witty analysis of the United States’ present discontents he reminds us why. His laser-like pinpointing of the profound dichotomy between the Founders’ constitution and the Progressivists’ constitution explains much of what ails America today, but it also provides the key to the way out, when people recognize how profoundly superior the former is to the latter
– Andrew Roberts, author of Churchill: Walking with Destiny
At a Glance
merican politics grows embittered because it is increasingly torn between two rival constitutions, two opposed cultures, two contrary ways of life. American conservatives rally around the founders’ Constitution, as amended, and as grounded in the natural and divine rights and duties of the Declaration of Independence. American liberals herald their “living Constitution,” a term that implies the original is dead or superseded, and that the fundamental political imperative is constant change or “transformation” (as President Obama called it) toward a more and more perfect social democracy, made possible by man’s increasingly god-like control of his own moral evolution.
