Narrative drives people's behavior and decisions.  Anyone involved in the political process must understand this fundamental reality of human nature.  Tonight we mine the work of Jane Austen for themes of interest to conservatives, focusing on her novel Persuasion, where the reckless spending of Sir Walter Elliott sets the framework for the story.  It is also a lesson on the perils of following bad advice.  We also take a look at the news of the week.
