The Acton Institute sponsored this lecture by Micah Watson on the political philosophy of C.S. Lewis.
Most do not think of C.S. Lewis as a political thinker, yet Lewis thought deeply about politics, human nature, and natural law. In this talk we will explore Lewis’ affirmation and critique of democracy, and his insistence that only a commitment to something more than mere equality can preserve virtue and liberty.
Lord Acton and C.S. Lewis—two sources for the restoration of “The English Way” in the Anglosphere, no? Two thinkers we can draw upon.
Lord Acton was not an Anglican but a Catholic by birth.
