William F. Buckley Jr. 1925-2008

Posted by redsatellite on February 27, 2008

William F. Buckley Jr. has passed.

Mr. Buckley weaved the tapestry of what became the new American conservatism from libertarian writers like Max Eastman, free market economists like Milton Friedman, traditionalist scholars like Russell Kirk and anti-Communist writers like Whittaker Chambers. But the persuasiveness of his argument hinged not on these perhaps arcane sources, but on his own tightly argued case for a conservatism based on the national interest and a higher morality.

You were an absolute inspiration to many of us. Thank you.
