Saving America: Start with the Basics by Peter Paton

by Peter Paton

Our country is at a tipping point, yet the last thing we need to do is start anew. “We don’t need to remake America or discover new and untested principles,” says Heritage’s Matt Spaulding. At times like these, we should return to our First Principles, which provide us with the wisdom and guidance we need to get our country back on the right path.

The new First Principles section of the Heritage website is a one-stop shop to access the lessons of American political thought. The place to start (especially if you are just discovering this material) is with the “Basics.”

To ensure easy access, this section is divided into seven key themes: the American Founding, Constitutional Government, Lincoln and the Civil War, Progressivism and Liberalism, Conservatism, Foreign Policy, and Economic Thought.

Every theme begins with three carefully selected “must-read” Heritage Foundation publications. These publications serve as an introduction to the role that first principles play within American political thought and their broader implications within each particular theme.
