Daniel J. Mahoney in The Conservative Foundations of the Liberal Order: “Liberty understood as pure freedom unconnected to larger ends and purposes fatally undermines the dialectics of truth and liberty, and liberty and virtue, that define truly human existence. There can be no liberty without authoritative traditions and institutions, or without openness to the demands that truth makes on thoughtful and morally serious human beings.”

We discuss this and more in my latest NRO podcast.

Next week’s podcast: Peter Robinson on Ronald Reagan.
