Dear Intellectual Takeout Reader,
As we gather with family and friends this Thanksgiving, we are reminded of the values that built our nation and keep it strong— values rooted in American principles.
This Thanksgiving, consider giving the gift of knowledge and fostering meaningful conversations around the dinner table. We’ve all heard the Thanksgiving stereotype of liberal family members bickering with conservative family members across the table, only for someone to regret saying something everyone will regret until next year. I think reasonable people of all political leanings can agree that’s not the discourse we need.
That’s why supporting Intellectual Takeout is so important. A gift to our organization will directly contribute to preserving and promoting the rational discourse we need to help restore civility and honesty in the American conversation—at the dinner table and beyond.
Here’s how your support can make a difference:
- Thanks in Action: Your contribution enables us to ensure that rational voices and principles are not only preserved but also advanced in today’s ever-changing world.
- Giving to the Next Generation: Help us equip students and young adults with the knowledge and insights needed to understand and appreciate Western values and political thought.
- Feast on the Ideas of Western Civilization: Your support enables the creation of high-quality articles, videos, and media (our video program is common soon) that celebrate and articulate suppressed perspectives that challenge the anti–Western Civilization narratives in the public discourse.
This Thanksgiving, let’s give thanks for the ideals that we hold dear, ideas that have shaped our nation’s history and continue to guide our future. In the spirit of gratitude and reflection, we invite you to express your thanks by supporting Intellectual Takeout, a cornerstone of rational discourse.
If you want to ensure that rational discourse thrives in the next generation, please consider making your Thanksgiving gift a monthly pledge.
We are deeply grateful for your commitment to preserving and promoting Western Civilization and rational discourse.
From the entire Intellectual Takeout family, we wish you and your loved ones a Thanksgiving filled with joy, gratitude, and meaningful conversations.
