National Humanities Institute

NHI promotes research, publishing, and teaching in the humanities, with emphasis on the ethical preconditions and purposes of culture and society, the centrality of personal freedom and creativity, and the historical nature of human existence. While NHI promotes a point of view that it regards as indispensable to addressing contemporary needs, it cultivates a spirit of openness and critical reflection, hoping that others will make independent, perhaps wholly unexpected use of its ideas in their own writing, teaching, and other work.

I came upon the National Humanities Institute through the writing of Patrick J. Buchanan, contributor and former publisher of The American Conservative Magazine.  I chose to feature it in this blog to demonstrate that there are followers of true conservative philosophy such as Robert Taft and Reinhold Niebuhr to counter those who have sold out to Wall Street bail outs and the Military Industrial Complex and their perpetual state of war.  The first offering will be a treatise by Pulitzer Prize winner Walter A. McDougall, entitled “The Challenge Confronting Conservatives: Sustaining a Republic of Hustlers.”  http://www.nhinet.org/epistulae14.pdf

There is hope out there for rational conservative thought that will confront the Social and Economic Darwinism and the dreams of Military Empire of the current crop of thugs who seem to aspire to a new Aristocracy.  Read and Enjoy!
