    Saw the first part of this wonderful documentary last night on Fox News. It’s a six part series and the first covered the conservative movement from the end of World War II up through the Goldwater campaign in 1964. It was like the history of my early political life and education. As a “movement” Conservative I have tried to explain to my, now adult children, what it was like being a political Conservative in the 1950’s and 60’s and now they can see it for themselves in this documentary. It covers the beginnings of National Review, Nixon and the Alger Hiss case and the “Draft Goldwater” movement. It tells of the influence of Ayn Rand, and the books “Road to Serfdom”, “Witness”, “God and Man at Yale” and “Conscience of a Conservative.” There are parts of an interview with William F Buckley, a year before he died, and lots of familiar talking heads that take me back to those years. The 1960 and 1964 Republican Conventions and so much more. The narration by Brit Hume of Fox News sets just the right tone. I will definitly buy this DVD set when it is released.

    I enjoyed the first introduction to Conservatizm by Brit Hume. I had no idea how it started and am glad I am watching it. It’s like when the teaparty started. I am facinated by the teaparty’s ingenious approach to less Government in our Lives. I will watch all six episodes and proably buy all six episodes to show our college kids. Thanks Brit

    I just watched the first episode of this set on Fox News and it reinforces and invigorates my conservative roots. Conservativism will end up saving our Great Country for future generations to live like we have lived under the “Exceptional American System” so admired by a young Frenchman, Alexis de Tocqueville author of Democracy in America, written in 1831. We are at a turning point in this country and I recommend that Conservatives take the time to educate those around them, especially their children and grandchildren, about the powerful principles explained in this series. Giants like Hayek, Buckley, Goldwater, Reagan and others are highlighted in this series, and their legacy is a proud and powerful force in present day polical debates. Thank you Fox News for this inspiration.
