The Founders articulated a vision for a new republic—first in the Declaration of Independence and then carried out in the Constitution—that reflected their beliefs in natural rights, limited government, and religious freedom. But today, the careful framework that ushered in two centuries of American prosperity is eroding. One of America’s most celebrated political writers discusses how the nation can reaffirm its foundational tenets.

George F. Will, a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, is the author of The Conservative Sensibility. He writes a twice-weekly syndicated column for the Washington Post. Richard Brookhiser (moderator) is a senior fellow at the National Review Institute and the author of Give Me Liberty: A History of America’s Exceptional Idea.
