Roger Scruton helpfully distinguishes “national loyalty” from “nationalism” in his 2006 book, A Political Philosophy: Arguments for Conservatism. The distinction is clearly as much of moment today as it was in 2006, if not more so. It’s pertinent both in the U.S. with President Trump’s campaign and election, and more broadly in Europe, with Brexit, and recent electoral results in Germany, France, and other countries. Law and Liberty editor Richard Reinsch gathered a small group of scholars and writers last week in Indianapolis to discuss sections from this and other of Scruton’s books.
