About the Event

Free and open to the public 

All forms of conservatism are opposed to radical egalitarianism and socialism, but is conservatism also opposed to the principle of equality in every form? Does the sympathy conservatism have toward social class distinctions make it inherently hostile to democracy? What are conservative perspectives on human rights? This lecture will review the perspectives of the American Founders, Tocqueville, Russell Kirk, Willmoore Kendall, and Harry Jaffa.
