Dinesh D’Souza on American Conservatism

“Being a conservative in America means conserving the principles of the American Revolution… Paradoxically, American conservatism seeks to conserve a certain kind of liberalism! It means fighting to uphold the classical liberalism of the founding from assault by liberalism of a different sort.”

— Dinesh D’Souza, Letters to a Young Conservative, “Conservatives vs. Liberals”
