Editorial Reviews

Taped on September 10, 1975. This rich hour begins with whether Oswald Spengler indulged in Weltschmerz, and ends with whether Ronald Reagan will still not care what the New York Times thinks of him if he makes it to the White House. In between, reflections, often profound, on the Cold War, the nature of the United States' antagonists, and the conduct of the war in Indochina. Buckley: "American[s]... who have traveled to China-people like Ken Galbraith, Scotty Reston, Barbara Tuchman-come back and, sure enough, we hear those old voices from the Thirties, 'The trains are running on time.' Now, how can a free society husband the moral flywheel necessary to distinguish between desirable and undesirable societies in the wake of such relativism as is stimulated by the philosophy of detente?" Kissinger: "First, let me say that if one pushed your argument to a conclusion, one would have to say that the United States must maintain international tensions in order to make sure that its people have the correct perception of the nature of the societies with which they are dealing. It is one of the tasks before us to enable the United States to conduct a vital foreign policy without moral relativism and also without the black-and- white categories with which we tended to sustain ourselves in the past."
