Yoram Hazony's The Virtue of Nationalism: A Law and Liberty Symposium

Yoram Hazony’s The Virtue of Nationalism offers a staunch defense of a world order anchored around independent nation-states. Hazony argues that the dream of a liberal international system with the authority and power to govern the world has always been utopian. Indeed, Hazony contends that universal orders of this kind always involve the imposition of empire.

We invited three authors to offer their thoughts on Hazony’s provocative thesis.

The Suppression of Nations

Theodore Dalrymple

Nationalism as Political Realism

Will Hay

The Soul’s Need for Rootedness

Luma Simms


Pelosi and Schumer

Overcoming the Elites

We need not grifters or hysterical celebrities, but people dedicated to public concerns who will defend our rights to our private lives.
