  2. when firing line went off the air and william f. buckly with it , we lost the last great show for civilized dialogue and debate in the british tradition .
    Buckly was conservative when it was not hip to be that way . he provided a forum for all different ideas .
    now what we have are just sound barks and sound bites.

  3. I remember playing this one back to back over and over, Chomsky stomped the poor frightened conservative! And that was when conservatives had pretentious anglophilic accents and horse-farms.

    But Buckley had no idea the disease he spread, even he’d be too smart to tolerate what conservo-spricists turned into! I dont know what a liberal is, whether it’s the opposite of conservative or even interested in big gov, etc, but I for one would be far happier debating Buckleyites than this current batch!
