The word “meme” might bring to mind a viral picture of a weird-looking cat with silly text, a tweet or video showing up everywhere online. But some political memes can be downright dangerous, according to a new book — “Meme Wars: The Untold Story of the Online Battles Upending Democracy in America.” Its authors argue that memes have inspired cultural battles over the last decade both on- and offline. Marketplace’s Kimberly Adams spoke with Emily Dreyfuss, a senior editor at Harvard Kennedy School's Shorenstein Center and one of the book’s co-authors, about how far-right or extremist groups use memes as weaponized tools in their attempts to influence American politics.

The New Deal policies of the 1930s never brought an end to the Great Depression, but by establishing Social Security, ending child labor, and establishing a federal minimum wage, Franklin Roosevelt's administration and their allies in Congress laid the framework for the widespread prosperity of the post-World War II-era. As the gap between the richest and poorest Americans continues to widen at remarkable speed, politicians on the left have called for a return to the New Deal. But it might be better to look elsewhere. In this episode we speak with Jefferson Cowie about his books Capital Moves: RCA's Seventy-Year Quest for Cheap Labor, (Cornell University Press, 1999) & The Great Exception: The New Deal & The Limits of American Politics, (Princeton University Press, 2016). Dr. Jefferson Cowie is James G. Stahlman Professor of History at Vanderbilt University. You can learn more about him and his work at his website, jeffersoncowie.info.

Queen Elizabeth II, Britain's longest-serving monarch, died on Thursday at 96. Elizabeth's broadly popular 70-year reign was widely considered a symbol of decorum and a rare bastion of stability and permanence in a world of shifting values and tectonic challenges that followed World War II. Against a backdrop of the passing of such an unwavering institutionalist, Public Strategies' Howard Schweitzer, Mark Alderman, and Kaitlyn Martin discuss the extremism and ongoing threats to democracy in the United States, and consider President Biden's record and Trump's legal jeopardy.

Katherine Stewart, the author of The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism, has spent her career reporting on the dwindling separation between church and state in the United States. In this episode of How to Fix Democracy, she joins host Andrew Keen to discuss how religious nationalism has been cultivated by leaders on the far-right for political gain.

In 2002, President George W. Bush stood astride the post–September 11 political world and Republicans looked poised to do the unthinkable and strengthen their positions in Congress in a midterm year. Yet liberal scholars John Judis and Ruy Teixeira published a provocative thesis: A new Democratic majority would “emerge” by the end of the decade. Traditional middle-class and working-class Democrats would be joined by growing ethnic minority populations, especially Asians and Hispanics; by working, single, and highly educated women voters; and by a growing share of the professional class, paving the way for a new majority. After President Barack Obama's re-election in 2012, the thesis seemed airtight and its guidance likely to live long after the decadal horizon its authors had adopted. Except, just after the majority “emerged,” it started to crack. Then came Donald Trump.

We're surrounded by patterns, in nature and in history. And these patterns remind us that everything will be ok.In 1965 British psychoanalyst, Elliott Jaques coined the phrase Midlife Crisis. He described it as a period in which we come face-to-face with our limitations, our restricted possibilities, and our mortality. A period of sudden awakening. Ironically, 3000 miles to the west, America was in the midst of its own midlife crisis. Political change, social change, space travel and great music defined the years 1965 and 1984. America was questioning the norm, searching for meaning. Was it a once-in-a-lifetime awakening or something else? Part of a recurring pattern that's happened before.  A turning from one generation to the next? Episode 11 is all about patterns. And... apples. Well, they are connected.

This week in Asian American Politics: - Many low-income Asian women live in conservative states where abortion is now illegal, with one of the main states being Texas. Contrary to what Texas says, it's time to mess with Texas so they stop messing with basic rights. - South Asian Studies programs are being created at more universities. The twist? They're mainly offered at Ivy League$ and there are plenty of white professors teaching it who probably say "chai tea" - NYC Announces Gun-Free Zones, and we get to see another example of taxpayer money being wasted on big signs that no one reads. - Starbucks has a new CEO! He's South Asian and very likely a union buster.

In our hyper-polarized climate, it is often said that partisans determine their policy positions not based on thought and reason but on opposition to the other party. If I'm a Republican and I hear that Nancy Pelosi supports a particular policy, I'll reflexively take the opposite stance. There is a literature in political science that suggests this is the case, but could it be wrong? In a new paper, “Updating amidst Disagreement: New Experimental Evidence on Partisan Cues”, our very own Will Howell and Anthony Fowler demonstrate that more robust research designs leads to a completely different conclusion. The American public may be more open to deliberative policy positions than we think; they just need to be given the option.

36 hours removed from the despicable raid of President Trump's home at Mar-A-Lago, Charlie breaks down all the latest intelligence and updates the story as news breaks in the course of recording this episode—including a bombshell, albeit confusing article just published in Newsweek detailing an FBI whistleblower. He walks through what we know about the purportedly classified documents at the center of this scandal, lays out the apparent lack of involvement from the White House in its planning and execution of the raid, and details reported from the scene about the length, depth, and bizarrely thorough nature of the operation. But more importantly—Charlie attempts to flesh out what we still do not know about the August 8th Fiasco, asking the biggest question of all still left unanswered: Where is Attorney General Merrick Garland and what can we infer from his uncharacteristic 3-day silence? In his attempt to get to the bottom of that, he shares a recurring thought amongst listeners, pundits, and political observers on all sides of the issue—that the FBI, DOJ, and Merrick Garland just gave the 45th President the greatest campaign launchpad in the history of American Politics. Finally, however, Charlie points out that we shouldn't get too comfortable just yet, given the equally-unprecedented development surrounding the seizure of Representative Scott Perry's cell phone. What comes next? Charlie will tell you when to be worried, but stay tuned—now that The Rubicon has been crossed, that moment may be here sooner than you think.Support the show: http://www.charliekirk.com/supportSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The Argument
What's God Got to Do With It? The Rise of Christian Nationalism in American Politics.

The Argument

Play Episode Listen Later Aug 3, 2022 32:48 Very Popular


The sweeping rise of Christian nationalism on the right has taken extreme forms since the election of Donald Trump in 2016. From “Stop the Steal” to the storming of the U.S. Capitol and now, the overturn of Roe v. Wade — Christian nationalist rhetoric has undergirded it all. But given that a majority of Americans identify as Christian, faith also isn't going anywhere in our politics. So what would a better relationship between church and state look like?To discuss, Jane Coaston brings together two people who are at the heart of the Christian nationalism debate. Katherine Stewart is the author of “The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism” and has reported on the Christian right for over a decade. Esau McCaulley is a contributing writer for Times Opinion and theologian-in-residence at Progressive Baptist Church in Chicago.Stewart feels that the movement is paving the way to something with graver consequence. “This is a movement that wants to promote theocratic policies,” she says. “But theocracy is really not the end point. It's sort of a means to an end, which is authoritarianism.” McCaulley agrees the danger is real. But to him, there's a place for faith-informed arguments in the public square. “When you try to enforce your religion as the base of your argument and the sole way of being a good American, that's Christian nationalism,” he says. “And when you're saying, well, hold on, here is a value that I want to advocate for, perhaps this is my best presentation of the issue, let's vote and let society decide — I think that's the best that you can hope for.”Mentioned in this episode:“Christian Nationalists Are Excited About What Comes Next” by Katherine Stewart in The New York Times“How Religion Can Help Put Our Democracy Back Together” by Richard Just in The Washington Post Magazine(A full transcript of the episode will be available midday on the Times website.)
