Conservative columnist George F. Will
Conservative columnist George F. Will, who has lifted American journalism on the pages of The Washington Post with countless columns championing principled conservatism, is now the most important opinion writer in America.
Will, who honorably follows in the footsteps of the greatest conservative columnist of them all, the late William F. Buckley, is now immersed in the greatest battle of his distinguished career. He is battling to save America and conservatism from the twin dangers of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.
It is just something that I grew up with and I don’t mind admitting it to anyone – I admire, and love George Will. I remember my first courses in college that tried to inspire all of us to write like George Will. He used to have the political late-night talk show, of course, the one I can’t remember the name of.
The historical dean of conservatism who lived during the years of the American Revolution, Edmund Burke, who would likely agree with Will, famously wrote that the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
