Contributor Post Created with Sketch. ACF Founders #5: Edmund Burke

 

Since this is July 14, Bastille Day, I bring you a special edition of the podcast–a conversation on the American and French Revolutions from the point of view of the British Empire, especially as understood by the greatest friend America had in Britain at the time, the philosophical statesman Edmund Burke, who is also a founding father of modern (including American) conservatism. I talk to Greg Collins, who teaches at Yale and did his Ph.D. at Catholic University of America, and has a wonderful new book on Burke’s political economy–Burke was the original wonk, he was a great defender of religion and law, but also a great promoter of commerce and private enterprise.
