About This Webinar

Gain Expert Clarity on the Most Heated Debates in Conservatism Today

These are contentious times for conservatives.

It’s not all left versus right—there’s vigorous debate among conservatives, too.

Is conservatism really just a “dead consensus” or “zombie Reaganism”?

Have conservatives been wrong to focus so much on free markets and individual liberty?

Should conservatives seek to conserve America's Founding principles . . .

. . . or was the Founding actually a root cause of our current problems?

Debate can be healthy. But some debates bring more heat than light.

How do you make sense of all this in today’s political climate?

Here to help you navigate these difficult questions is Modern Age editor Daniel McCarthy.

McCarthy has made Modern Age a must-read forum precisely because he brings together thoughtful conservatives of all stripes. And he has become an in-demand commentator, writing for the New York Times and appearing on NPR, the BBC, and many other media outlets.

During this live episode of Conservative Conversations with ISI, McCarthy will shed light on the most heated debates in conservatism today—and show you how they can help us move forward.

Join us on* Thursday, June 4, at 7 p.m. ET* to hear McCarthy bring clarity to such issues as:

- is the conservative consensus dead—and if so what killed it?
- What should we make of new intellectual forces like national conservatism and post-liberalism?
- Which classic conservative thinkers speak most to our times . . .
- . . . and whose ideas are losing relevance?


Joining this online discussion gives you the chance to ask McCarthy your own questions—and get them answered in real time.

Plus, you could win a free subscription to Modern Age!
