Recalling the Buckley legacy

The National Review Institute put together the video below featuring the estimable William F. Buckley, Jr., the founding editor of National Review and the man without whom….well, listen to George Will’s voiceover tribute in the video. NRI unfurled the video last week at the dinner awarding NRI’s first annual Buckley Prize. The video covers a lot of territory in six minutes. It does so in a manner calculated to raise a smile and perhaps even elicit a tear as we recall old victories — intellectual, moral, spiritual and strategic. And the prophetic voice of Barry Goldwater hits home.
