Political Justice: A Traditional Conservative Case for an Alternative Society
Alexander J. Illingworth
Political Justice is a traditional conservative case for an alternative society, in a world which has lost its moral compass. With a sound mixture of common sense and clear-sighted temperance, Political Justice reconstructs classical philosophy through direct dialogue with modern liberalism, dismantling the fallacies and follies of the latter brick by brick, even while rediscovering the principles of a just political order. Neglecting neither our most cherished and deeper heritage, nor the best of classical liberalism, A. J. Illingworth guides the reader step by step through a lucid investigation of the political and social structure right for European peoples, culminating in a vision of a society which is capable as much of securing us in our liberties, as encouraging us in our virtue.
