Roots of American Order

Title Details

Running Time
40 Min.
In this lecture from the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, the modern "godfather of American conservatism" Russell Kirk talks about the tension between freedom and order that has always existed in America. He criticizes what he sees as the anarchic freedom taught in the universities of the 1960s, and how without a moral and social order this radical freedom leads to chaos. He also talks about the ideas of liberty which were established by philosophers John Stuart Mill and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. And he argues for his belief that "order is the first need of all".
