uckley: a fradical' conservative Few people are so conservative political- ly that their ideas are considered radical. At times during his lecture in September at Hardin-Simmons University, William F. Buckley Jr. was one of those people. Buckley, syndicated columnist and host of the television show "Firing Line ,', of- fered a number of economic, social and political proposals that he admitted might seem radical. While he spoke of the ggformidable ex- citement" of President Reagan's ad- ministration, Buckley admitted to ap- prehensions about the presidentis tax package. Although for the most part Reagan's cuts have been considered the most conservative budgetary action taken in years, Buckley said, "I donit think it goes far enough. The reduction will not ex- ceed inflation." Buckley pointed to former President Jimmy Carterls economic renewal plan as one of the clearest examples of Man age of ongoing irresponsible rhetoric, especially in the field of economics." In such well-intentioned acts as pouring millions of dollars in loans into the Chrysler Corporation to rescue it from bankruptcy, Buckley said the government was merely paying workers to continue manufacturing unwanted automobiles. Even worse than the failures of politi- cians, Buckley said, is their unwillingness to admit that economic failure has to be tolerated and even anticipated. "Government is organically unsuited to effect economic progressf' he said. Buckley suggested that the risk of the free enterprise system is much healthier than government intervention. One of Buckley's statements was that Americans should enjoy and count their blessings more. He said it was a unique and t'dazzling" thing that everyone in HSU,s Behren's Auditorium was there because he chose to be, not because he was forced to attend. This would not be the case in most of the world, he said, but in America "little freedoms are taken for granted." Disaster can come to America, he said, through a "failure to invigorate our attach- ment to freedomf' - Doug Mendenhall 60 William Buckley 16 .. ff' A WW W M'
