2.The Citadel of Private Property

The Citadel of Private Property is the latest essay in Sutherland Institute’s original series onDefining Conservatism.  The right to own and control one’s property is a pillar of conservatism and of western society itself.  “One reason for the conservative’s preoccupation with the defense of private property is that the right of property is closely connected with other social institutions, specifically family and religion, whose autonomy is crucial to the existence of ordered liberty.”


The Defning Conservatism series includes short biographies of key historical figures, especially those from the American conservative intellectual movement.  The essays also focus on authentic conservative principles and on the analysis of public policy from a conservative perspective.
