"IS THERE A CONSERVATIVE IDEOLOGY?" - FIRING LINE (April 11, 1985)

Today we often use the term ideology synonymously with philosophy or worldview. In this fascinating Firing Line episode, William F. Buckley, Jr. and Joseph Sobran question Kenneth Minogue, professor of political science at the London School of Economics, on the older sense of what an ideology means on April 11, 1985. Minogue had just published his book, Alien Powers: The Pure Theory of Ideology, that same year.


This was back when public discourse used to have some level of substantive content.
