Daniel McCarthy, editor of the venerable journal of conservative cultural commentary Modern Age, has been observing and commenting on Republican politics and intellectual trends in conservatism for decades now. How does someone who once deeply supported Ron Paul go on to deeply supporting Donald Trump? In this episode of the Braver Angels Podcast, co-hosts Luke Nathan Phillips and Silas Kulkarni press McCarthy on the shifting currents inside conservatism in the Age of Trump– among libertarians, neoconservatives, traditionalists, paleoconservatives, nationalists, and so many other tribes– to understand the ongoing and sometimes compelling dynamics of thought on the American cultural right.
