Best of the Bookman 15 May 2011
The Farewell Address Revisited
by John Bowling
In this “Best of the Bookman” essay from 1982, Russell Kirk's friend John Bowling takes a careful look at George Washington's Farewell Address, offering a helpful summary of its concerns and a discussion of its origins and importance.

A culture is perennially in need of renewal. A culture does not survive and prosper merely by being taken for granted; active defense is always required, and imaginative growth, too.
