Summary
When populism runs into realism, when disruption runs into democracy, when indecency runs into decency, we are left with no choice but to seek refuge in principle, resort to the truth, and return to the conservatism that has been the stabilizing ballast of our republic since its founding. The alternative is to become further unmoored from principle and reality, to give in to our worst impulses, to fight every fight no matter how petty, and to continue headlong into ruin. As conservatives, we must turn away from that course and prove ourselves worthy inheritors of America. We must embrace a conservatism that recognizes once again that other Americans are not our enemies.
