The American Conservative


The American Conservative exists to promote a "Main Street" conservatism that opposes unchecked power in government and business; promotes the flourishing of families and communities through vibrant markets and free people; and embraces realism and restraint in foreign affairs based on America's vital national interests.


What We Do

We are Main Street conservatives; we cherish local community, the liberties secured by the Founders, the civilizational foundations of faith and family, and-we are not ashamed to use the word-peace.

The American Conservative is restoring American constitutional conservatism by elevating the tone and tenor of our public discourse, which is often held captive to ideological echo-chambers and partisan hackery. We aim to be the leader of a new movement of conservatives with the resources to educate America's political and cultural leaders in the values of Main Street America.

Great contributors writing about things that are important to us all. - Deborah T.

This is a truly magnificent thing: a current affairs magazine that makes me feel proud to be American. Its well-researched cover articles shed light on the true state of the country where most media these days are happy to battle in the culture wars. Its thoughtful and healthy-minded book reviews broaden the intellect and summon up the American spirit. Left and right wing writers alike are treated with respect and examined in detail. - J.S.
