The Party of Death

Kevin Holtsberry reviews Ramesh Ponnuru’s new book, The Party of Death.
Time and again Ponnuru cuts through the obfuscation, deception, and double speak to remind us of this simple principle. Either human beings have the right to life or they don’t; either they have this fundamental equality or they don’t. Some in the party of death will go to great lengths to avoid facing this because they don’t like where it leads philosophically or politically. But Ponnuru insists on holding their feet to the fire.
My take? The Party of Death is a fantastic book that marks the emergence of conservatism’s next great intellectual. Ramesh Ponnuru’s book is a must-read, must-understand, must-absorb tour de force. No conservative’s (and indeed anyone who places value on the right to life) library is complete without it.
