Back in 1973, Buckley laid out some of the reforms on welfare, taxes, and education that would gain support on conservative side. We don't have intellectuals on the conservative side who are as widely read as Buckley was - and it's a shame. Interesting to see that WFB was more conservative than libertarian at this point; his crime proposal was focused on curtailing the reach of the 5th amendment.
