The Bucknell University Conservatives Club
The Counterweight is a publication dedicated to promoting the free exchange of ideas in an environment where meaningful debate and ideological diversity are often lacking. We, its staff, seek to serve the Bucknell community by infusing it with the ingredients necessary for a balanced educational experience. These ingredients include conservative, libertarian, and classically liberal thought.
We aim to find and describe logical solutions to issues big and small, while adhering to the Constitution of the United States. We believe that peace is best achieved through strength, that utopia is nowhere, and that true equality is blind to race, creed, sex, and sexuality. We take it as our mission to expose the inadequacies of the leftist ideas that dominate this University and to articulate an alternative viewpoint. We strive to inform, engage, and perhaps even amuse our readers in doing so. We invite the active participation of any student who shares our vision and would like to join our mission.
