Initial Mission Statement Written During The Bush Years:

A community exploring the philosophical, historical, cultural, aesthetic and operational foundations of this regime and its associated Movements’ determined assault on on our liberal democracy.

The Stiftung Leo Strauss is located in the heart of the Imperial City. We comment on current events and personalities based on direct experience interacting with this regime and many of the institututions, policy issues, personalities and pundits during its reign.

Now, in late 2010 this community watches how the Democrats give full meaning to Talleyrand’s observation that “They have learned nothing and forgotten nothing.”
