This episode is an anthology of memorable clips from the show’s first decade, which opens with a few words from Mr. Buckley about Firing Line itself: “Our aim is to get people who have something to say. … They need only to watch their logic, and be prepared to examine previously unexamined deposits of prejudice, if they are burdened by them.”
