Political Theory in Action - Ages 11-14

The purpose of this presentation is two-fold: first, to demonstrate to an audience of any age the applicability of political theory to the real-world, and what political theorists do on a daily basis; and second, in terms of that demonstration, to explore the possibility of a conservative revolution in the thought of Edmund Burke, and what that means for conservatism today.
