“Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, Stand up and be counted at any cost.” ~ Thomas J. Watson (1874-1956)

Conservatism is nothing more than a series of smug justifications by greedy capitalists for the disastrous consequences of the industrial revolution upon the human race. The great many are told it's noble to sacrifice their lives for the benefit of a very few.

There is no free will God causes people to sin, it was God who made the egyptians hate the hebrews Psalm 105:25 King James Version (KJV) 25 He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with his servants. He controls what the goverment officials do, this includes Hitler and stalin, this isnt just maneging evil, he is directing it Proverbs 21:1 Like rillets of water is the king’s heart in the hand of Yahweh; Wherever He inclines, He turns it aside. You are not in control of your life, God is Jeremiah 10:23 23 O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is NOT in man that walketh to direct his steps. God chooses what you say, even your words are chosen by God. Pro 16:1 The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the LORD. God made evil people. Pro 16:4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. God chooses what you do. Proverbs 16:9 A man's heart deviseth his way: BUT the Lord directeth his steps. God has rigged the lottery, every roll of the dice is predetermined. Pro 16:33 The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD. What you do in your life is directed and chosen by God, both good guys and bad guys Pro 20:24 A person's steps are directed by the LORD. How then can anyone understand their own way? Gods will always wins out, what God wants you to do you will do. Proverbs 19:21 King James Version (KJV) 21 There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand. You dont have to believe in God for God to be in control of you. Isa 45:5 I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me God causes people to sin Gen 45:8 So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt. Gen 50:20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. God made Samson love Timnath, so that he could set up an elaberete series of event to destroy the Philistines. Think about this, God can make you fall in love with trashy girls. Samson breaking God's law about not marrying outside of the hebrew race (thats a sin) was of God. Jdg 14:4 But his father and his mother knew not that it was of the LORD, that he sought an occasion against the Philistines: for at that time the Philistines had dominion over Israel. God makes King David Sin, and then punishes him for it 2Sa 24:1 And again the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah. God uses Satan to temp king David, God tempts no one directly, he uses others to tempt him. 1Ch 21:1 And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel. Your entire life is predestined before you were born (notice then wasnt assighned the day you were born but BEFORE you had done ANYTHING, how long you will live, even your thoughts. Psa 139:16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them. God has it all planned out, the same God that gave billions of Stars names and numbered the hairs on your head has your life micromaneged to the smallest detail. Notice this is continued from verse 16, God has thought alot about you before you were even born. Psa 139:17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! God sends demons to decieve people to make sure they sin, God doesnt lie, but he uses spirits to lie for him. 1 Kings 22:22 King James Version (KJV) And the Lord said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so. Eze 14:8-9 8 And I will set my face against that man, and will make him a sign and a proverb, and I will cut him off from the midst of my people; and ye shall know that I am the Lord. 9 And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I THE LORD HAVE DECEIVED THAT PROPHET, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel. God tempts Abraham, just not directly he uses other spirits to do the job. Gen 22:1 And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. God does whatever he wants, he doesnt need your consent. Did Pharoah Consent? Did the king of Babylon Consent? God forces himself on people all the time. Daniel 4:35 King James Version (KJV) 35 And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou? Think about this, the amount of steps you take is micromaneged by God, this is a God of details, DETAILS. Job 14:16 King James Version (KJV) 16 For now thou numberest my steps: dost thou not watch over my sin? Psalm 37:23 Young's Literal Version 23 From Jehovah [are] the steps of a man, They have been prepared, And his way he desireth. Now I know what some of you still think that God only predestines good, not evil. God created evil. God not only predestines the good but the bad. Isa 45:7 7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and CREATE EVIL: I THE LORD DO ALL THESE THINGS. Eze 14:22 yet, lo, there hath been left in it an escape, who are brought forth, sons and daughters, lo, they are coming forth unto you, and ye have seen their way, and their doings, and have been comforted concerning THE EVIL I HAVE BROUGHT in against Jerusalem, all that which I have brought in against it. Micah 1:12 For stayed for good hath the inhabitant of Maroth, For EVIL HATH COME DOWN FROM GOD to the gate of Jerusalem. 2 Kings 6:33 He is yet speaking with them, and lo, the messenger is coming down unto him, and he saith, 'Lo, THIS IS THE EVIL FROM GOD: what -- do I wait for God any more?' Neh 13:18 Thus did not your fathers do? and our GOD BRINGETH IN ON US ALL THIS EVIL, and on this city, and ye are adding fierceness on Israel, to pollute the sabbath.' Jer 19:3 and hast said, Hear a word of Jehovah, ye kings of Judah, and inhabitants of Jerusalem, Thus said Jehovah of Hosts, God of Israel: 'Lo, I AM BRINGING IN EVIL on this place, at which the ears of every one who is hearing it do tingle.' Jer 21:10 FOR I HAVE SET MY FACE AGAINST THIS CITY FOR EVIL, And not for good -- an affirmation of Jehovah. Into the hand of the king of Babylon it is given, And he hath burned it with fire. Lam 3:38 IS IT NOT FROM THE MOUTH OF THE MOST HIGH Go not forth the EVILS and the good? Jer 32:42 'For thus said Jehovah: AS I BROUGHT IN UNTO THIS PEOPLE ALL THIS GREAT EVIL, so I am bringing in on them all the good that I am speaking concerning them; Jer 36:3 if so be the house of Israel do hear ALL THE EVIL THAT I AM THINKING OF DOING TO THEM, so that they turn back each from his evil way, and I have been propitious to their iniquity, and to their sin.' Exo 4:11 11 And the Lord said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the DUMB, or DEAF, or the seeing, or the BLIND? have not I THE LORD?

I see that Mr. Will and the other members of the never-trumping-good-ol'-boys-club are out there doubling down on out-dated backroom conservatism. Mr. Will, which of the other 'conservative' presidential nominees from 2016 could have survived what Trump just emerged from? Answer: NONE. (a moot point since only Trump could have defeated millary) If it were up to you, we'd still be the minority party lead by the latest of a long line of spineless, toothless slugs and still be knee-jerking to the socialist onslaught against freedom. The philistines aren't at the gates anymore, George, they've busted through. They are among us. At what point do you suggest an alarm be raised and possibly action taken? Apparently never. Thank God you've been marginalized before you did any irreversible damage. Sit back and enjoy your twilight years, sir.  We've got it from here.

You know I love George! I’ve been watching him on pundit shows since the 80s and as a teacher I love his eloquence as a writer and he has taught me quite a lot. I also love how is is calling out the GOP. But, he is misguided about climate change. Shows that no one can be right about everything. He also seems to have this way of presenting himself as right on everything. I get it; he’s been around and has studied things. But, his recent smugness about AOC on a recent talk show also shows that he thinks his way is the only correct way. George, I would love to see you be a bit more humble so more listen to you.

It wasn't written in English, but the name and picture was clear. I complained to the gift shop counter lady, but her English wasn't great.

I love George Will and consider him one of the reasons I pursued more knowledge about how conservative developed. His take on religion is very different than mine and thats ok. The point is free people enjoy liberty when they get to decide what they believe. I concluded - in spite of my politics - that Jesus Christ embodied everything that makes sense to me. I know others disagree. Thank God we are not all the same! We don't have to hate each other. We have so much in common. We sit in the same traffic, fight the same battles against obesity, want to see our kids grow up and be happy, enjoy time with family and friends. That doesn't mean we have to love each other or agree on everything. Will is an American treasure. I am a better christian for knowing this atheist...

The Founders weren't deists, they followed the wisdom of Jesus of separating God and Caesar. This is basic political wisdom. They weren't setting up a theocracy. Americans left that behind in the old world. But Americans had Calvinism in their blood and bones. The foundation was already set by the time of the Revolution. Our country doesn't work without the foundation of Christianity. The Founders knew this and stated it. Our churches are not part of the state, but our founding documents and beliefs rest on the solid foundation of things like biblical anthropology (man is fallen, the doctrine of sin), and the Ten Commandments.

Maybe we should discuss the dangers of *crony capitalism* , instead? 🤔 America loves to pretend that crony capitalism happens in other countries but *gasp!*- not here! Except, in actuality, that's America's economy in a nutshell. 🤷‍♀️ Kinda like how we pretend that "innocent until proven guilty" or "guilty *'beyond a reasonable doubt'* " actually applies to anyone other than the top 10% income bracket. Most are presumed guilty and thrown in jail, with a bail/ bond that they are typically unable to afford, unless they prove their innocence. Interestingly, "conservatives" aren't actually all that "conservative", are they? What's our deficit now, under Trump? How much was the increase under Bush or the decrease under Clinton? Obama? Oh, right... "Conservatives" *love* "big government" when it comes to subsidizing industries, giving tax breaks to wealthy donors at the expense of the middle class, policing women's bodies, rigging the voting system to their advantage, protecting corrupt Republicans like Trump and Mitch McConnell; the list goes on and on...

Bryan Winter - As one who has moved from a conservative to more libertarian/conservative position, I agree with you. I would like to point out that Clinton largely adopted the conservative (intellectual) agenda in the 90s.

I've moved from more liberal parties to a more libertarian bent, based on the input from intellectuals like George Will, and upon observations about the fact that human well being over the past couple centuries have increased dramatically ... so it's pretty clear something about western civilization is worth 'conserving' in it's current form, and I place my bet on classical liberal philosophy. I've also come to realize it's not that conservatism is full of bad ideas. It's that activism and activists are full of bad ideas, and what happened on the right is the activists, who you need to win elections, took over from the intellectuals, who actually know what the hell they are talking about. Liberals I think should take this as a lesson. Liberal intellectuals and technocrats should be running the actual agenda on the left. I tend to find the Clinton/Obama wing of the party to be well informed, educated, respectful and data driven. There is room for an intellectual conservative, and an intellectual liberal to solve problems. But if you let the activists take over and start primary people for being insufficiently doctrinaire or failing to get worked up over a symbolic gesture, your going to get a whole lot of populist stupidity.

Will stuck in the 60s. George it is 2019 not 1964;

ALberto Martinez conservatism was fundamentally different back then. Ever since the southern strategy, conservatism has ossified, I think. Turned into something inflexible yet broken.

Bleh! Every remark they disparage progressives and celebrate conservatives - bleh! The Republicans who claimed to be conservatives birthed Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bush 41 & 43 and the 21st century depression and unending wars & DONALD J TRUMP! Again I say, BLEH!

Oh my oh, we must still take time out to listen to the fascist George Will tell us how wonderful it is to be obedient to corporations, empire and unelected policy, really?

Good to see George still at it. May not agree with everything he says, but i appreciate the clarity of his sensibility. Love to listen to his historical references, which i have many to learn!
