Two Cheers for Neoconservativism: An Orthodox Perspective

By Shalom Carmy

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2008

Carmy explains the virtues of the neoconservative rebellion against liberalism from a Jewish religious perspective, including factors such as the undermining of individual initiative and responsibility and the questionable desirability of economic equality. He observes with a note of caution, however, that it would be an enormous irony if neoconservatism as an identifiable movement collapsed owing to the same lack of realism that once made it a necessary corrective.
