Why is it important that at this particular point in time, right-of-center youth become involved publicly, whether in politics, media, their communities, or another capacity?

The impact that government policies will have on our country are very real, and it will be up to our generation to deal with them. It’s terrifying how few people actually understand how the market works, and how government intervention can often hurt instead of help. If you’re a young person and you do understand these things, you need to share your knowledge with others. There are a lot of people out there who are libertarians but just don’t know it yet.

 

What must elected officials and others in positions of leadership do to make a right-of-center message resonate with the Millennial generation?

If right-of-center-politicians want their message to resonate with Millennials, they need to listen to Millennials. Millennials are going to trust the politicians who they believe care about the same things that they do. Don’t be too wonkish — tell Millennials how government policies will impact their lives, so they know why they should care.

 

Where would you like to see the conservative movement in 10 years — and how can it get there?

The best freedom movement is one that’s devoted to all kinds of freedom — both economic and personal. I would like to see the movement keep its focus on keeping the government small. Also, while it’s great to be friends with other conservatives, it’s important not to get so trapped in that bubble that you don’t know what’s going on outside of it. Branch out, make friends with people with different beliefs and values, so you can learn from them and they can learn from you.
