Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. Ten Years of Firing Line: 1966-1976: Part I

Taped on September 20, 1976. Ten years is a long time in television, and a tenth anniversary is worthy of a celebration. This show is an anthology of memorable clips-some lasting several minutes, others just a couple of paragraphs-from this first decade's shows. But first, a few words from Mr. Buckley about Firing Line itself: "Our aim is to get people who have something to say. They can say it on Firing Line without having to jump over roadblocks every few minutes. They can indulge their own styles of thought and speech. They can be frenetic or leisurely. They need only to watch their logic, and be prepared to examine previously unexamined deposits of prejudice, if they are burdened by them. Firing Line is devoted to the proposition that interesting people can be interesting through the course of an entire hour. Failures at this level have been very few. But then, to quote the buoyant observation of Harold Nicolson, 'Ninety-nine people out of a hundred are interesting; and the hundredth is interesting because he is the exception.'"

Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. "The Culture of the Left"

Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. "The Culture of the Left"

Taped on February 26, 1968"He calls himself," says Buckley in his introduction to the first of Muggeridge's several appearances on Firing Line, "a man of the Left. . . . His apostasies from the Left are, however, so numerous as to leave him a member of the Left in the same sense that, say, Bishop Pike is a member of the Episcopal Church." But let Muggeridge speak for himself: "Well, Bill, I think you must distinguish between being a member of the Left and being a liberal. I regard liberalism as the great disease of our society, and when I said that people like Mrs. Roosevelt, admirable though they were in intentions, would be seen to have done more damage than people like Hitler and Stalin, I meant precisely that. Hitler and Stalin got a lot of people killed and precipitated the great war, but they are now discredited. But liberalism, which has been the dominant philosophy in the most influential and powerful nations of the West, continues to thrive despite the fact that every time it's been applied, the consequences have been disastrous."

Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. "How to Speak, How to Listen"

Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. "How to Speak, How to Listen"

Taped on April 14, 1983. A visit from Professor Adler is always a treat. On this occasion--sparked by his latest book, "How to Speak and How to Listen"--he reminds us that real conversation doesn't come naturally. We have to work at speaking clearly and listening attentively just as we have to work at writing clearly and reading attentively. Buckley: "What are the responsibilities of the speaker to attract that kind of attention? Should you be able, as a finished listener, to listen to dull people?" Adler: "No, any more than you should be able to read well a bad book." Summary by Firing Line staff.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.

Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. "The Decline of Christianity"

Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. "The Decline of Christianity"

Taped on June 12, 1969. Much of the considerable interest in this show derives from hearing the famous preacher engaging in ordinary conversation. Dr. Graham agrees with his host that the organized churches are in decline, but he insists that in his travels throughout the country he has found no "real revolt against the Person of Christ." Graham: "I think the Church is going to undergo restructuring. I suspect that the movement that is under way now is to have small meetings in homes. You know, the early Church, for the first three centuries, met in homes. I suspect the movement is in this direction now. In coming to New York two years ago we found more than a thousand of these groups already meeting. Since then four thousand more groups have emerged."

Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. "How to Win Arguments"

Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. "How to Win Arguments"

Taped on September 10, 1981. All in the family: Buckley invites his colleague Bill Rusher and Mr. Rusher's sometime colleague from their own television show, The Advocates, to help him explore their common trade. Two samples: Rusher: "My book [titled How to Win Arguments (More Often than Not)] advises you not to take untenable positions and then risk yourself on television programs." ... Miller: "Felix Frankfurter simply reversed himself in an opinion several years after writing the first, and just candidly said in the opinion, 'I've changed my mind, but better that wisdom comes later than never.'"

Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. "Is the World Funny?"

Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. "Is the World Funny?"

Taped on July 7, 1967. The exchanges are frustrating at times, Mr. Marx being so relentlessly, well, Groucho. But it's fun and sometimes illuminating to see this mythic figure on someone else's turf. (The answer to the title question, by the way is: No, it's damned sad.) Marx: "I have said the things that no one else has dared to say." Buckley: "Why? Why?" Marx: "Because the audience loves it." Buckley: "All right." Marx: "If you have a general, like I had General Bradley on the quiz show--nice man, very nice man; might even conceivably be a good general--well, I kidded him all through the show and the audience loves that because they don't get a chance to do that to mayors or politicians or bank presidents..." Buckley: "But it's very healthy, isn't it?" Marx: "Yes, it is. There's not enough of it."

Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. “Firing Line 1966-1986: A Potpourri of Persuaders”

Taped on January 14, 1986. The main principle of selection for this third anniversary anthology seems to be favorite passages that somehow didn't make it into one of the first two. So we have Margaret Heckler arguing with Phyllis Schlafly: Heckler: "In Alabama, if [a man kills his wife] in the act of adultery, he would then be indicted for the crime of manslaughter; but she, in the opposite situation, would be indicted for the crime of murder. It's a double standard." Schlafly: "And for this we should make our young women subject to the draft?" Or Tom Wolfe: "If you ever have a preposterous statement to make, and I offer this as a suggestion to anyone who has something they know to be preposterous they have to get off, say it in five words or less, because we're always used to five-word sentences as being the gospel truth." The final "persuader" in this hour uses a different medium: Rosalyn Tureck, the piano (with the assistance of Johann Sebastian Bach).

Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. “Feminism”

Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. “Feminism”

Taped on March 31, 1975. The peg for this show was the Equal Rights Amendment, at that time stalled in the state legislatures. But the discussion between these two old friends soon deepens in surprising ways. Clare Boothe Luce: "Do you think it's possible for a man to be a Christian and not a feminist? ... Jesus Christ was the first feminist.... If you read the Gospels, you'll be astounded at the number of miracles he performs at the request of women.... The whole evidence is that he had some extraordinary mission to women; otherwise you cannot account for their love and loyalty and devotion." ... William F. Buckley Jr.: "But there's an elision in your argument. You talk about Christ being a feminist, you talk about our tradition leading us in this direction, and all of a sudden this direction turns out to be ERA. And you leave us almost necessarily committed to the proposition that it is the fruit of Christian activity."

A Firing Line Debate: Resolved: That the Women's Movement Has Been Disastrous

A Firing Line Debate: Resolved: That the Women's Movement Has Been Disastrous

Taped on December 7, 1994. Anyone who thinks "the women's movement" is monolithic should watch this show. Come to think of it, anyone who enjoys good theater should watch this show. Samples: Camille Paglia: "Essentially feminism remains one of the great progressive reform movements of the last two hundred years. It is analogous to the abolition of slavery, to the abolition of child labor, and so on. Just as Mr. Buckley would not want to abolish Catholicism because of the excesses of certain fanatics, so must we not attribute to feminism the excesses of various neurotics and incompetents." ... Betty Friedan: "I mean, I am a feminist, but I am not politically correct, and I hate that kind of rigidity. I hate the attempt to make a single doctrine, a single party line, whether it's feminism or anything else." ... Helen Alvare: "How can a movement that says that some have no right to be born, based on dependency, size, stage of development, disability-and I might remind you some of your sisters say it's okay to have sex-selection abortion-how can such a movement call itself life-affirming?"

A Firing Line Debate: "Resolved: That Drug Prohibition Has Failed"

A Firing Line Debate: "Resolved: That Drug Prohibition Has Failed"

Taped on March 15, 1991. As Mr. Kinsley introduces the question, "President Bush doesn't talk much about drugs any more [having made them a year and a half earlier the centerpiece of a prime-time televised speech] and his first drug czar, William Bennett, has wandered off, and so has the attention of most Americans.... But unlike that other war [in the Persian Gulf] the drug war goes on." From Mr. Rangel's perspective, "If I thought for one moment that you [the affirmative side] were sincere about this, I would ask you to take a look at the children that are born addicted to drugs; to talk about those that find themselves in the emergency wards, if you will, Doctor, with the illnesses that are attributed to this." At times the participants are coming from different universes (Voth: "Does illness increase or decrease a person's freedom?" Glasser: "... I don't think a person who is sick is more or less free against the government"), but the various personalities still bring life to this much-discussed topic.
