The Death of Conservatism: A Movement and Its Consequences - Sam Tanenhaus

Sam Tanenhaus’s The Death Of Conservatism (Random House, $17) is a wake-up call in 120 pages for serious conservatives and liberals. Movement conservatives today are anti-institutional, embrace fundamentalist orthodoxies, and reject government. They refuse to adapt to changing societal conditions. Principled conservatives (think William Buckley) have been replaced by the likes of Limbaugh, O’Reilly, and William Kristol. This irresponsible conservatism(Robespierre-like) damages liberalism as well, leading to fighting political issues in ways that demonize opponents and reject finding common ground. Tanenhaus’s penetrating prose and his erudition remind readers why political ideas do matter.
