George Will: The Future of Conservatism

George Will: The Future of Conservatism

Wed, Jun 26, 2019 6:30 PM
Marines' Memorial Theatre, Second Floor
609 Sutter Street, San Francisco

George Will has been a columnist for The Washington Post since 1974 and is one of the most influential political pundits today. He is vocally dissatisfied with the directions that both the American Right and Left have dragged the nation. His new book, The Conservative Sensibility, asks Americans to revisit their history books and remind themselves of the values America was founded upon—values which he sees both sides of the aisle straying dangerously far from.

The book covers everything from the natural rights of man and the history of American democracy to the modern capitulation of congressional checks on the power of the executive. He believes the solution to many of the high-profile political issues of today can be found by going back to the founders’ intentions for the nation, and by grounding modern solutions more solidly in a historical context.  

People of all political affiliations have found themselves in agreement with much of what he has to say. Join us for a conversation with one of the most respected journalists and political commentators in the nation.

The Commonwealth Club of California is the nation's oldest and largest public affairs forum. Each year, we bring more than 400 events on topics ranging across politics, culture, society and the economy to more than 25,000 members and the public.
