NOM Founder Prof. Robby George: Keeping Social and Economic Conservatives Together


An excerpt from NOM Founder Professor Robert George’s recent speech on the importance of keeping social and economic conservatives working together:

The moral foundations of economic conservatism are precisely those of social conservatism: respect for the human person, which grounds our commitment to individual liberty; and the right to economic freedom and other essential civil liberties; belief in personal responsibility, which is a precondition of the possibility of moral desirability; individual liberty in every domain; recognition of subsidiary as the basis for effective but truly limited government; respect for the Rule of Law, even against courts which want to act like legislators instead of judges; and recognition of the vital role played by the family in the flourishing of any decent and dynamic society.
