Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Robby George at Princeton

Princeton Alumni Mag runs this long piece on Professor Robert George, what he teaches, his social and political conservatism, his influence on students. Last few lines: "However people may react to his positions, George makes no apologies for his beliefs. ’The United States isn’t perfect,’ he says, ’and our history includes sin and shame, especially slavery and segregation. But our founding principles and constitutional ideals are, in my opinion, profoundly good and true.

’I don’t force students to accept those principles, but I do want students to understand them,’ George continues. ’I see my role as that of a teacher rather than a preacher. At the same time, I believe that if students understand our nation’s principles, they will grasp their wisdom and goodness.’"
