William F. Buckley

Thomas Sowell writes :

One of the perks of being a liberal is disdaining people who are not liberals…

In addition to his own personal contributions to the intellectual diversity of American life, William F. Buckley’s pioneering opened the way for many others to add greatly to our intellectual diversity, the only kind of “diversity” that liberals seem to dislike, especially on our college campuses.

“I mean to live my life an obedient man,

but obedient to God,

subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors;

never to the authority of political truths

arrived at yesterday at the voting booth.”

— William F. Buckley
Nov. 24, 1925 – Feb. 27, 2008
Founder of National Review, leader in the conservative movement
