The Editors of National Review

National Review is America’s premier conservative magazine. Edited by Rich Lowry, the fortnightly was founded in 1955 by William F. Buckley Jr. In its premier issue, the editors stated in the magazine’s “Credenda” that among its primary convictions and intentions were the protection of free markets (“the competitive price system is indispensable to liberty and material progress”), the defeat of Socialism (“the century’s most blatant force of satanic utopianism”), and the defense of the organic moral order (“the profound crisis of our era”).Famously stating that National Review“stands athwart history, yelling Stop,” that pledge and commitment—and those philosophical concerns—remain as real and vital today as they were over six decades ago.
