The Reactionary Mind
- Conservatism from Edmund Burke to Donald Trump
- By: Corey Robin
- Narrated by: Mike Chamberlain
- Length: 9 hrs and 48 mins
In The Reactionary Mind, Robin traces conservatism back to its roots in the reaction against the French Revolution. He argues that the right was inspired, and is still united, by its hostility to emancipating the lower orders. Some conservatives endorse the free market; others oppose it. Some criticize the state; others celebrate it. Underlying these differences is the impulse to defend power and privilege against movements demanding freedom and equality - while simultaneously making populist appeals to the masses.
Interesting and informative book, but narrators voice is difficult to listen to
