This is what I mean by my constant insistence upon "moderation" in government. Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.

Wearying, but definitely worth watching.
His departures into county-by-county stuff can grate a little, but it's a tiny part of the whole. What this lecture accomplishes is a complete integration of all the aspects that have pulled and pushed party directions since their inception, and that is impressive for a single lecture.
