So said Russell Kirk, American Conservatism’s premier thinker, sixty years ago. Dr. Kirk’s insight still rings true today. In an age when acerbic sound bytes dominate our political discourse and when most journals offer fleeting, unserious commentary on the issues of the day, there is a greater need than ever for a thoughtful journal that presents timeless essays on the best of current, conservative thought.
The Imaginative Conservative is that journal. Here we offer reasoned and reflective essays on issues of politics, economics, culture, and liberal learning, written by some of the greatest minds of both the present and the past. We strive to preserve the best of what Western Civilization has produced in terms of man’s political, philosophical, and economic thought and artistic achievement.
With your support we will continue to offer imaginative conservatism to readers across the world.
Though our journal is free to our readers—and advertisement-free, unlike most conservative journals—it is not free to produce. This is your opportunity to help The Imaginative Conservative continue to thrive and bring the message of true conservatism to millions of readers throughout the world.
As Dr. Kirk urged: “Those men and women who are concerned for the order of the soul, and for the civilized order derived from moral habits, need to repair to the sources of wisdom.”
