Recent essays by Sohrab Ahmari of the New York Post and David French of the National Review Institute provided dueling visions for how cultural conservatives should respond to the post-liberal left. Ahmari contended that social conservatives should assertively use their power to oppose the secular left. French held onto the classical liberal approach to resisting leftist policy proposals. A conversation about these visions was moderated by IHE Fellow and New York Times columnist Ross Douthat.
