Heh, another thing that keeps popping up is how Buckley couldn’t have been all that good a Catholic, since he wrote for Playboy. We all remember that papal decree in 1742, and the stir it caused in Massachusetts.
And to reply to Hunter, I actually don’t think anyone read God and Man after the 70s. I think it’s like Tocqueville’s Democracy in America, widely cited, rarely read. I say this because everyone mentions that Buckley wrote a book about his school and how it was about secularism and collectivism at the university. Yet no one mentions the primary solution he offered (which was brilliant): alumni and donors should have a say in the curriculum. People donate because its in their best interests, not because they’re just nice people.
