About This Workshop

Today's political observers try to diagnose the cultural ills of our age, but they do it in ignorance of the full scope of the threat. We live in the cultural wake of the French Revolution, a fact that, in our present circumstances, we need more than ever to appreciate. What Edmund Burke realized―and what he articulated in his Reflections on the French Revolution―was that the Revolution was not just a societal revolution, but a cosmic revolution, one that not only imperiled France, but which threatened to scale the barricades of Heaven. What we are attempting to understand now are the things that Burke had figured out over 200 years ago: that the threat is not to any one regime, but to the roots of civilization itself.
