Dan Flynn Interviews With National Review on Frank Meyer’s Conservative Legacy

Daniel J. Flynn, The American Spectator’s senior editor and Spectator A.M. newsletter writer, has spent the past two years researching Frank Meyer (1909-1972), an ex-communist turned former senior editor of National Review who was the political philosopher responsible for developing fusionism. Flynn will compile his research into a full-length biography of Meyer’s journalistic and political influence.

Flynn recently interviewed with National Review columnist Neal Freeman about how Meyer’s philosophy would be translated in today’s social and political spheres. Flynn highlighted Meyer’s conservative values of “protecting individuals against force and fraud, adjudicating disputes, and national defense as proper functions of government.”

Flynn noted that Meyer’s legacy to the conservative movement is significant. He said, “Meyer’s presence at the creation of so many institutions — National Review, Young Americans for Freedom, the Conservative Party of New York, the Philadelphia Society, American Conservative Union — that made up the skeletal frame of the conservative movement means that he lent his political DNA to those who followed.”
