Strong Hall Auditorium 101


One of America’s top political commentators and senior editor of the National Review, he stimulates audiences with bold, provocative critiques of the political landscape and current events.

Jonah Goldberg guides you to appreciate the essential nature of politics by examining the underpinnings of liberal and conservative ideologies, economic policy and the changing role of modern-day media.

As senior editor of the National Review, Jonah firmly established himself as a prominent analyst with the publication of two New York Times best-selling books, including “Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left from Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning.”

Named one of the top 50 political commentators in America by The Atlantic magazine, Jonah’s informed and thoughtful perspectives spark indispensable dialogue and debate. Whether discussing the intellectual history of the Left or the hazards posed by political clichés, he scrutinizes prevailing opinions and generates new insights.

As Jonah regales listeners with his trademark passion and humor, listeners come to recognize the power of ideas to shape a movement as well as individual beliefs.

The Future and Past of Conservatism

  • As contradictory as it may sound, the conservative movement is constantly changing. The Bush years changed conservatism in profound ways, mostly for the worse. How will Trump’s presidency further these changes?  What does the future of conservatism look like? And does conservatism’s failure necessarily mean liberalism’s success?
