Conservatives: Embrace Science

Let the liberals be Luddites. Let Democrats be the Chicken Little, sky-is-falling party. Joshua Jacobs, co-founder of the Conservative Future Project, is reaching out to Republicans, urging them to embraceĀ an open-ended future filled with driverless cars, stem-cell research and private space exploration.

If that sounds like a tall order for a party whose leading presidential candidates in 2012 waffled on whether they believed in evolution, you’re right. But Jacobs argues forcefully that the GOP is no less anti-science than the Democrats and actually has a long history of pushing scientific and technological innovation.

Nick Gillespie sat down with Jacobs in Reason’s D.C. studio to talk about how conservatives might stop standing athwart history yelling stop and march boldly into the future.
