Sam Tanenhaus “The Death of Conservatism”
September 9th, 2009
Conservatism, at least as defined by many of its practitioners today, is dying, says New York Times Book Review editor Sam Tanenhaus. He calls his book “The Death of Conservatism,” but before your hackles are raised, listen to his definitions. There are classical conservatives, and then there are “movement conservatives,” ideologues who are decidedly not conservative.
Tanenhaus says it’s the rigidly orthodox movement conservatism that is in its final days. Who are the true conservatives? Would you believe Dwight Eisenhower and .. Bill Clinton?
