Transcript How would you define: "LIBERAL" and "CONSERVATIVE"? These convenient labels—two of the most-used terms in the political vernacular—may not always mean the same thing to speaker and listener. Compare your definitions with those offered by four well-informed Americans in an unrehearsed panel debate an ANSWERS FOR AMERICANS: and in people lhat a conservative e primarily interested in property and ii' government. Mu. Buckley: In modern-da) ternU a liberal is primarily a man who is infatuated with the state. He turns to the slat,' lo settle all of lln- problems tha1 libertarians or conservatives would prefer for man to settle' for himself. The best definition of a liberal. though it's a facetious one.

MISS KELLEMS: A Liberal is not a twentieth-century creation. MR. COMBS: A Conservative is a romantic seeking to recapture the past. MR. BUCKLEY: A Liberal is infatuated with the state. PROF.
