Lecturer in Political Science Gregory Collins has an article on the National Review website entitled “The Moderation We Need.

In Why Not Moderation?, Craiutu, a professor of political science at Indiana University Bloomington, furnishes a distinctive and earnest defense of this concept, framing it as a “strong and muscular virtue” in an age of political radicalism. Yet his argument leaves the reader desiring further clarity on its guiding principles.
