Editorial Reviews

Taped on January 19, 1988. Dr. Ron Paul, a former Republican, is the Libertarian Party's candidate for President, and he proves, in this energetic exchange, to be a well-spoken exponent of the libertarian creed. Buckley: "As somebody who occasionally calls himself a libertarian, I regret the extent to which the libertarian position is discredited by a kind of reductionism that is simply incompatible with social life. You want to destroy the FBI, for instance. Why?" Paul: "Well, we could point out, first, that the first 125 years of this country existed without an FBI. That came about, I believe, during the First World War. The CIA is a really recent phenomenon, 1947." Buckley: "Well, we existed 125 years without an airplane, too."

William F. Buckley's "Firing line" was unique in two ways: Buckley's weekly shows show-cased the Yale-educated, upper-class, polished mind with his brilliance and wit.

Yale-educated, Buckley came from privilege and had served in the British SIS (secret service)-which formed the US's OSS during WWII.
Buckley founded the publication "National Review". and authored books such as: "God and Man at Yale".

You'll find well-matched debate partners who could hold their own.

I watched this show as a early teen and it challenged me with the heroic intellectualism which Buckley exhibited.that I became a scholar also. So my own education was a direct result of my admiration of

This was a man who enjoyed other intellectual viewpoints also.

Well-done Amazon! Carolanne Mekeel-Matteson

Very glad to see these shows available. Almost never missed an episode back in the day. Audio was just fine for me.

I retract my last review. The audio works and Ron Paul still has it.

While I would certainly love to hear an energetic and (relatively) young Ron Paul go head to head with Bill Buckley, unfortunately the video has no audio.

I haven't seen any of this series that has disappointed me. Thumbs up!
