Barry Goldwater famously told the Republican National Convention in 1964 that "extremism in the pursuit of liberty is no vice and ... moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue." Begging to differ is Aurelian Craiutu who joins this episode to discuss his new book, Faces of Moderation, a profound study of thinkers such as Raymond Aron, Michael Oakeshott, Isaiah Berlin, and others, who defended freedom and constitutional government against ideologues of all types.
