The article relates the comments of readers of the periodical "National Review," concerning the article of columnist Jeffrey Hart on conservatism and modernism in the U.S. in 1981. A reader commented that Hart was able to touch readers with his article on modernist moral commandment. However, the reader said that the doctrine of Hart would only work as a supplement to traditional moral codes. Another reader said that Hart commenced his article by asserting that the terms modern and American are key words to achieve conservatism.
