Abstract

With his book The Conservatarian Manifesto: Libertarians, Conservatives, and the Fight for the Right’s Future, Charles C.W. Cooke aims is to get good policy – or, at least, better policy – to work as good politics. The vehicle of the good politics, for Cooke, is the constellation of discourse, organization, media, mobilization, governing, and so on that I call “Team Republican.” This essay reviews and comments on Cooke’s book, mostly favorably.

Keywords: Conservative, libertarian, Republican, liberal, politics
