Today’s conservative establishment lacks moral purpose and the strategy needed to fight the Left’s central doctrine: identity politics. Identity politics, having already conquered the nation's major institutions, seeks to destroy the American way of life: republican self-government, equal protection of the laws, and the freedom of speech and thought. The Claremont Institute’s Center for the American Way of Life is devoted to restoring political liberty by arming the Right with moral confidence, ideas, and new policies, while working to undermine the Left's hold over America's institutions and conscience.
The Center for the American Way of Life is a branch of The Claremont Institute. The mission of The Claremont Institute is to restore the principles of the American Founding to their rightful, preeminent authority in our national life.
