Conscience and Its Enemies

Robert P. George, the brilliant Princeton philosopher, talks about the eroding worldview that our freedoms and ethics are built on.  He says we're "drawing down our moral capitol," and warns that we'll run out of it if we don't do something soon to rebuild the foundational principles that rights and freedoms are founded on.  As the Declaration of Independence grounded it, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

You can listen to an interview with George about his new book Conscience and Its Enemies.
