This week on Banter, Dr. Marvin Olasky joined the show to discuss the history of compassionate conservatism, what it means, and whether or not it might return in the current political climate. Dr. Olasky is the editor in chief of World Magazine and the author of 20 books, including “Compassionate Conservatism: What It Is, What It Does, and How It Can Transform America” (Free Press, 2000) and “The Tragedy of American Compassion” (Regnery Publishing, 1992). He keynoted an event at AEI on compassionate conservatism hosted by AEI’s Director of Domestic Policy Studies Ryan Streeter and AEI Research Fellow Angela Rachidi. Olasky also joined a panel discussion on how the movement fell short and its chances for a comeback. You can watch the full event video at the link below.
