Recorded on September 27, 2005
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium
The welfare state and other policies of the political left have
not achieved the social justice they promised, in the United States
or around the world. By contrast, conservatives have led the fight
to free fellow human beings from some of the gravest injustices of
our day - whether from corrupt governments that squander resources
while their populations suffer or from modern-day enslavement
through sex trafficking.
Conservative policy has focused on restoring human dignity where
it has been eroded by government dependence. It has encouraged
action by institutions of civil society - families, houses of
worship, and civic organizations - as the best means of ensuring
the welfare of individuals, particularly children, the elderly, and
other vulnerable members of society. In short, conservatives have
confronted economic, social, and foreign policy issues with moral
clarity about the condition and ends of human nature - and that
represents the best course to a just society.
Please join us at this inaugural international conference
examining how conservative policy advances social justice.
