Mark Hemingway is back to help Aaron break down the recent intramural Conservative debate between First Things and National Review, a debate that apparently everyone else wanted to have also. It started with this piece by Sohrab Ahmari and then mushroom clouded over the entire internet. Mark pointed out that this is really a continuation of the debate sparked by Patrick Deneen in his now infamous book Why Liberalism Failed. There is no easy way to characterize this debate because it stems from the fundamentally anti ideological philosophy of Edmund Burke. This quality continues to be both the main strength of Conservative thought and also the point of tension that has generated endless debate.
Also check out Mollie Hemingway's (Mark's Wife) book on the Kavanaugh Debacle coming out soon. It's gonna be a massive success!
And of course Mark gives us new music recommendations! Check out our third Hemingway Spotify Playlist. Also it was brought to my attention by a past podcast guest that not everyone is subscribed to Spotify, so here is the same playlist on Youtube.
