This is a project that will do something different. Rather than focus on the topical political topics (there are plenty of terrific offerings for that), Liberty and Restraint will focus more on the relation to modern politics through a different lens.

It will take from the wisdom of the classics such as Edmund Burke, the founding fathers, Alexis de Tocqueville, John Stuart Mill to more modern voices such as Albert Jay Nock, Russell Kirk, and William F. Buckley, to contemporaries like George Will, Peggy Noonan, and the late Charles Krauthammer.

If that sounds interesting to you, please subscribe. The newsletter will only get published 2-3 times per week, so it won’t be a strain on your inbox. Thank you and please be sure to leave comments!

Thanks for subscribing to Liberty & Restraint. We appreciate it!
