‘Virtue socialism’ as toxic as the economic kind, book warns

Centennial Institute Fellow Kevin Miller has brought out a book–length treatment of his provocative essay on freedom and virtue in American politics, published last year in Centennial Review.

Freedom Nationally, Virtue Locally—or Socialism was released Nov. 29 by Denali Press. Learn more and order the book here.

Bill Armstrong, the former US senator who now heads Colorado Christian University, says the book is “full of passion, wisdom, and horse sense … Kevin Miller is an important thinker.”

John Andrews, director of Centennial Institute, calls it a guidebook for helping “conservatives rediscover the ‘render to Caesar principle,” without which “America won’t remain the land of the free.”

Miller’s argument in brief, adds James C. Bennett, author of The Anglosphere Challenge: Why the English–Speaking Peoples Will Lead the World in the 21st Century, is that “while freedom is an attribute of political system, virtue is an attribute of human beings—and so the attempt to use the state to pursue visions of virtue is undermining the republic of the Founders.”
