One of America’s preeminent conservative thinkers and one of the most influential intellectuals of the last half century has died. Through his work at The National Review and elsewhere, William F. Buckley Jr. helped revitalize conservativism and champion limited government. Unlike so many pundits of today, Buckley was never entirely predictable and kept thinking and debating right up until the end. He was a truly principled conservative and he will be missed.
