The Future and Past of Conservatism

Tue, September 25, 2018
Dinner Program
Jonah Goldberg

As contradictory as it may sound, Jonah Goldberg of the American Enterprise Institute believes that the conservative movement is constantly changing. Maintaining that the Bush years changed conservatism in profound ways, mostly for the worse, he will examine how Trump's presidency will further these changes. What does the future of conservatism look like? And does conservatism’s failure necessarily mean liberalism’s success?

Jonah Goldberg is a fellow and Asness Chair in Applied Liberty at the American Enterprise Institute, where he writes about political and cultural issues. He is concurrently a senior editor at National Review. A bestselling author, he writes a nationally syndicated column that appears regularly in more than 100 newspapers across the United States. He is also a weekly columnist for the Los Angeles Times, a member of the board of contributors to USA Today, a Fox News contributor, and a regular member of the Fox News All-Stars panel on “Special Report with Bret Baier.” He is the author of two New York Times bestsellers, "The Tyranny of Clichés” (Sentinel HC, 2012) and “Liberal Fascism” (Doubleday, 2008).

The founding editor of National Review Online, Goldberg is the recipient of many awards. He was named by The Atlantic magazine as one of the top 50 political commentators in America. In 2011, he was chosen as the Robert J. Novak Journalist of the Year at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
