For Our Time
- This review essay from one of our first editions in 1961 looks at an anthology of Edmund Burke.
A “conservative character [is] suspicious of doctrinaire alteration, respectful toward history, preferring variety over uniformity, acknowledging a moral order composed of human persons, not of mere political and economic atoms subservient to the state.”
Russell Kirk, A Program for Conservatives, 1954
