“Liberty Is The Design of Nature”

Bush’s view of liberty and the future of “compassionate conservatism” — a Christianity Today Q & A with former Bush speech writer and policy wonk Peter Wehner. Snip: “We have been witnessing over the last decades a great movement toward human liberty, the swiftest advance in human freedom in history. But those policies are anchored in more than recent experience. They’re grounded in a particular view of human nature. The Presidents belief is that theres a moral imperative to treat human beings with dignity and decency, and that liberty is the design of nature. This explains why liberty leads to human flourishing.”
