Defending the institutions and civic virtues that sustain republican self-government

Simon Center for Principles and Politics

Guided by the principles of the American Founding, the B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics defends the institutions and civic virtues that sustain republican self-government in America. We do so by publishing essays and reports, running educational programs, and sponsoring lectures aimed at teaching the foundations of liberty, with a particular emphasis on defending constitutionalism, revitalizing conservatism and countering the spread of progressive-liberalism.
