How is The Pax Americana Institute Defending Conservative Political Thought for the Midwest?

For 13 years, Pax Americana has been writing, publishing and influencing thought about conservative Midwestern politics. All politics is local, and we take that seriously: we care about our Midwestern home, and the political winds that blow through it.

PAI stands for classical conservatism, and we're committed to bringing you clear, concise and understandable analysis. Read Pax Americana Institute's best conservative news, current events, recommended reading, and more.

Our team is growing by the day, and we want you to join us. Midwestern politics has never been more important on the national scene, and the time to stand up for conservatism is now!

Classical Conservatism may not be what you think: we aim to stand above the partisanship and day-to-day infighting that plagues political parties throughout the country. We are committed to serious, mature, intellectual consideration of the problems facing our nation, and how careful, principled legislation and public thought can stay the nation's course.

A Principled Approach to Governance

Because it has never been more difficult or more important to defend Classical Conservatism, the Pax Americana Institute is devoted to defending the tradition of classical conservatism in the Midwest.

The principles and pillars of classical conservatism rise above the domestic rabble-rousing of national media, in-fighting and campaigning. Classical conservatism is founded on principles of natural law, inalienable rights, human decency and democratic republic representation.

The Pax Americana Institute defends the principles of Classical Conservatism for the Midwestern states through conservative publications, screenings, interviews and podcasts. We are writers, thinkers, intellectuals and warriors for our cause. We are always looking for fresh voices and new perspectives.

If you're looking to write with us, or join our team, reach out and let us know.

Fundamentals of Classical Conservatism

Classical Conservatism is founded on principles of natural order, rule of law, natural human rights, democratic republican representation, the American Constitution and fidelity. The definition of Classical Conservatism might be different from what you imagine.

We compiled a carefully considered description of Classical Conservatism. Read our detailed description of Classical Conservatism's tenets here.

Classical Conservatism is more than partisan jockeying for elections: it is a principled consideration of as many different issues as possible. Classical Conservatism is founded on ideals that have steered ships of state throughout the world to prosperity, peace and success.
