IT TAKES A FAMILY Conservatism and the Common Good

by | Read by Rick Santorum

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

The Pennsylvania senator explains the difference between social programs based on misguided intellectual ideals (liberal) and those based on a moral code (Santorum's). His oversimplifications are innocent, and he is not sanctimonious. His smooth rhetorical skills will make listeners tolerate, even empathize with, his consternation. Instead of counterproductive government programs, he wants to improve "social capital" in communities by supporting strong families, involved fathers, community initiatives, and people who use their strengths to work instead of scheming for handouts. He's resonant, uplifting, and fun to hear as he explains how to empower two-parent families instead of undermining them. Strangely appealing, it's a noble polemic that will fascinate listeners across the entire political spectrum. T.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
