Our views

  • The Atlantic Sentinel resists sweeping change. We believe the center must hold and that progress is made incrementally.
  • We value individual liberty as well as a sense of belonging and believe the challenge in our politics is finding a balance between those needs.
  • We are confident free enterprise and free trade have proven themselves over dirigisme and protectionism, but we see a role for the state in providing for the common good.
  • We recognize that states act in their own interests, but we don’t accept that international relations are a zero-sum game. We support liberal institutions that regulate the affairs of nations.
