I believe he is the leader of the millennial conservative movement. He holds true to his values, and I have found great strength in his stubborn persistence to maintain the core of conservatism. I feel as if we are losing our core values as political polarization plagues the United States and we need to salvage what we all have left, and Ben Shapiro is professing these values of conservatism to the next generation of leaders.
