The Beacon is a blog dedicated to furthering the mission of the William F. Buckley, Jr. Program at Yale. It aims to challenge intellectual conformity present within the Yale community through thoughtful and thought­-provoking reflections on campus culture, American politics, political philosophy, economics, history, and more. The Beacon features commentary and scholarship from student fellows and supporters of the Buckley Program and, occasionally, that of Bill Buckley himself.
