In an era when many Americans have lost a sense of patriotism and common purpose, The Imaginative Conservative presents a thoughtful, civil discussion about what has made America and the West great. Here we offer reasoned and reflective essays on issues of politics, economics, culture, 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.

Since The Imaginative Conservative’s inception nine years ago, our essays have been read more than 19 million times. We have published more than 7,100 essays by more than 1,200 authors, who write from across the United States and 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.

Thomas Jefferson said: “I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education.”

This is the ultimate purpose of The Imaginative Conservative: to preserve the American Republic by enlightening as many of its citizens as possible about the Western heritage of human dignity, individual liberty, and cultural achievement.
