Conservatism and Elections: Untangling the Philosophy from The Atlas Society on Vimeo .
Conservatives for decades have dominated the Republican Party. Yet American political conservatism has consisted of an uneasy and often conflicting coalition concerned with economic, social, and foreign policy. This reflects internal problems within the conservative philosophy itself.
In this webinar, presented on December 12, 2011, Edward Hudgins gives an overview of the evolution and tenets of conservatism. He goes on to discuss the political and social challenges that it has sought to address and the state of conservatism today in light of the upcoming 2012 elections.
