Goldwater, Time Magazine, 1964

The following is a link to Barry Goldwater’s speech—one of his best—given at Notre Dame, February 1962.

Goldwater’s ally and friend, Russell Kirk, actually wrote the speech for the Arizona senator.

By all accounts, the University of Notre Dame community received the talk well.

And, well they should’ve!  It’s a great statement about the essence and meaning an purpose of conservatism.
