Nice article, @motherJones! I think the problem is, as @RalphNader put it, the Democrats and Republicans are “dialling for the same dollars; “ and “two sides of the same coin.

In this episode we explore the long history of concerns that some money may be "tainted", and ask what this means for philanthropy now and in the future. Including:The history of tainted donations, featuring: St Augustine of Hippo, The Venerable Bede, St Thomas Aquinas, The Paris Guild of Prostitutes, Frederick Douglass, George Cadbury, George Bernard Shaw, The Salvation Army, J. D. Rockefeller, Mark Twain and G.K. Chesterton.Is a donation only tainted if the method of wealth creation is ethical questionable, or can it be tainted by association becasue a donor is problematic for some other reason?How have views about what kinds of wealth creation are or aren't ethically acceptable changed over time?Is there a statute of limitations of any kind on tainted money, so that after a certain period of time it is deemed OK despite any problematic connections?Is it enough to acknowledge when wealth is based on past injustices such as slavery, or do active reparations need to be made? How does this work in practice?Should we distinguish between critiques of individual tainted donations and systemic critiques of wealth and capitalism as a whole?Who decides whether a donation is tainted?Is it better to take tainted money if the charitable activity being funded addresses the ethical concerns arising from the wealth? (E.g. using money from the gambling industry to address gambling addiction). Or does this increase the chance of reputation laundering?Does acceptance of a gift in reality always imply condoning the source of wealth?Are concerns about tainted donations greater when the donor is getting recognition for the gift? Would it be better if such gifts were entirely anonymous?Is it more acceptable to accept money from a tainted source if no strings are attached? Is this another argument for core cost funding?Is new technology bringing new challenges when it comes to identifying and assessing the sources of donations?Related links:Philliteracy thread on the history of tainted donationsRhod's article on "A Brief History of Satirising Philanthropy"Philanthropisms episode on Platform PhilanthropyPhilanthropisms episode on CryptophilanthropyPhilanthropisms episode with Ben SoskisEmma Saunders-Hastings's article “Send Back the Bloodstained Money”: Frederick Douglass on Tainted Gifts"Julie-Marie Strange & Sarah Roddy's Paper "Banking for Jesus: Financial Services, Charity, and an Ethical Economy in Late Victorian and Edwardian Britain" George Bernard Shaw's "Preface to Major Barbara, with First Aid to Critics"Teddy Roosevelt's "Man With the Muckrake" speech Curb Your Enthusiasm, "The Anonymous Donor" Part 1 and Part 2.

Luke 8:26-39Then they arrived at the country of the Gerasenes, which is opposite Galilee. As he stepped out on land, a man of the city who had demons met him. For a long time he had worn no clothes, and he did not live in a house but in the tombs. When he saw Jesus, he fell down before him and shouted at the top of his voice, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg you, do not torment me”— for Jesus had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. (For many times it had seized him; he was kept under guard and bound with chains and shackles, but he would break the bonds and be driven by the demon into the wilds.) Jesus then asked him, “What is your name?” He said, “Legion”; for many demons had entered him. They begged him not to order them to go back into the abyss. Now there on the hillside a large herd of swine was feeding; and the demons begged Jesus to let them enter these. So he gave them permission. Then the demons came out of the man and entered the swine, and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned.When the swineherds saw what had happened, they ran off and told it in the city and in the country. Then people came out to see what had happened, and when they came to Jesus, they found the man from whom the demons had gone sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind. And they were afraid. Those who had seen it told them how the one who had been possessed by demons had been healed. Then all the people of the surrounding country of the Gerasenes asked Jesus to leave them; for they were seized with great fear. So he got into the boat and returned. The man from whom the demons had gone begged that he might be with him; but Jesus sent him away, saying, “Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.” So he went away, proclaiming throughout the city how much Jesus had done for him. I didn't plan to make today all about Juneteenth, really. Back in May, when I realized that June 19th – this newly minted National Holiday – fell on a Sunday, I thought it would be meaningful and fun to collect our Mission Sunday offering for the month in honor of the occasion. And this week I asked Jeannie if we could sing “Lift Every Voice and Sing” – the Black national anthem - in honor of the day. And then I saw that we'd be reading that bit from Galatians, which promises that, baptized into Christ Jesus, we are no longer Jew or Greek, male or female, slave or free, but that we are all ONE, thanks to faith, thanks to the grace of our creator, and thanks to our shared humanity as children of God, too.So I thought perhaps the stars and the lectionary and the calendar might have aligned in such a way that maybe there's supposed to be more said and wondered about and learned, here, on this Juneteenth, after all.I'm guessing I'm not the only one who just started learning about Juneteenth, as something worth commemorating, within the last few years or so. It was only declared a national holiday last year, but within the last 2-3 years, Juneteenth started showing up on my Google calendar, much to my surprise. It just showed up, like Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Arbor Day, St. Patrick's Day, Flag Day, Father's Day.And not only was I surprised and curious about that, once I looked into it, I was a little embarrassed that I'd never been taught or told about it before, since it's been celebrated by Black people in our country since it happened in 1865.The short story is that June 19th – Juneteenth – marks the day in 1865 when Union soldiers finally announced to enslaved people in Texas, that they were free. What's sad and significant and worth celebrating about Juneteenth, is that this announcement finally came to those enslaved children of God in Texas – the last state in the country to hear the news – which didn't happen until more than two months after the end of the Civil War, which the traitorous Confederacy and those longing to keep their right to own people lost, of course. And the announcement of Juneteenth's liberation came to enslaved Texans more than two years after President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation which would have otherwise, at least symbolically, granted them their freedom. So the significance of the Juneteenth holiday is that it means to mark for our country an even fuller, more comprehensive “Independence Day,” than what the 4th of July, ever could have meant for the millions of enslaved Americans who were owned and terrorized and treated as property for so many generations. Maybe you've heard what Frederick Douglass, the escaped slave and Black abolitionist had to say to white people about the 4th of July holiday, back in 1852: So, if we buy what Paul is selling in Galatians, and I hope we do – that our baptism and our faith and the abundance of God's grace makes us one in Christ Jesus, and that we are no longer bound by the labels and limits and institutions of this world; no longer male or female (remember last week's sermon about Pride and Pronouns?) … no longer male or female … no longer Gentile or Jew … and no longer slave or free … than the freedom and liberation of Juneteenth is quite a day worth celebrating for all of us, not just our Black neighbors, friends, brothers, sisters, and fellow citizens.Which brings me to Jesus and this strange story from Luke's Gospel. It's especially strange when we take it at face value and try to make 21st Century sense out of this moment when Jesus exorcises a host of demons from a possessed man, sends those demons into a herd of pigs, who are then driven madly into a lake where they drown because, apparently, even though fat floats, these pigs couldn't swim.Well, I learned a while ago that some smarter people than me believe this story – like so many stories in Scripture – might have more meaning if we read it literately, rather than just literally. (It's hard to take this story literally, anyway, when we're given the impression that Jesus arrives in a boat, on the shores of Gerasa, which was a town 25-30 miles inland from any significant body of water.) Anyway, these wise scholars point out that the occupying Roman army had a history of terrorizing the Jews in the region of Gerasa, so that when that possessed man names his demon “Legion,” a word used by Rome to quantify its military might, and when that “Legion” of demons gets cast into some unholy, unclean, symbolically sinful swine as far as Jews were concerned, and then drowned, anyone listening to this story in First Century Palestine, would have connected that demonic “Legion” to the “Legions” of the oppressive Roman Empire and realized that Rome just got owned by that Jew, from Nazareth, named Jesus.The moral and message of the story, then, would have been one of hope and vindication and justice and joy that the Kingdom of God, in Jesus, was more powerful even than the empires of this world. And, of course, that God, in Jesus, always stands for and stands with the outcasts, the outsider, and the oppressed in this world.So I see a lot of common ground between what Jesus is up to with the possessed man and the Gerasenes and what happened for the enslaved people in our own country a few generations ago: as always, Jesus' message is one of good news for the poor, freedom for the oppressed and release for the captives. Happy Juneteenth!Sadly, the other common ground we can find in this story is that not everyone gets that, or wants that, or is willing and able to hear that message of good news.In Gerasa, it was the swineherds and the townspeople who missed the point. The swineherds were probably mad that their valuable property – all of that livestock – was lost and gone forever. This is, of course, what upset so many slave holders, and the Confederacy, in general, back in the 1860's, too.And who knows what made the average bear in Gerasa so afraid that day – that a miracle had happened?; that a possessed man had been made well?; that an outcast had been welcomed in?; that they were being asked to look at him and at themselves and their past treatment of him differently because of what Jesus had done?Maybe all of that is the kind of thing that made so many – and still makes so many – uncomfortable and unwilling to acknowledge the beauty and fullness of what Juneteenth represents. Maybe all of that is why it took so long for the last enslaved people in our country to get news of their liberation … because their enslavers couldn't see their humanity or if they could, they refused to acknowledge or atone for how they had oppressed them so sinfully. Maybe it's why there were armed white people protesting and terrorizing a Juneteenth celebration in Tennessee, just yesterday.In that same speech about the Fourth of July, by Frederick Douglass, he also says simply, “Oppression makes a wise man mad.” And maybe that's what was up with that guy who was possessed and cast out and living in the tombs of Gerasa back in Jesus' day.“Oppression makes a wise man mad.” I think Jesus would concur. And I think this miracle with the possessed man, the exorcised demons and the drowned pigs is a picture of God's judgement against oppression of any kind. I think it is a picture of God's call for justice in an unfair world. And I think it's an invitation, on a day like Juneteenth, to celebrate that justice when it comes, to work toward more of it however we're able, and to hope for that kind of liberty and justice for all – and mean it, every day.AmenNOTES:You can read the entirety of Frederick Douglass' speech HERE.There's a great chapter about Juneteenth in Clint Smith's book How the Word is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America.

Their dissertation, The Burdens and Blessings of Responsibility: Duty and Community in Nineteenth-Century America, is a study of the emergent idea of personal responsibility as it conflicted with more established ideas of duty in the writings of Herman Melville, and Harriet Jacobs. Drawing on a range of sources –works of literature, theology, domestic manuals, labor pamphlets – their research shows how many Americans began to conceive of moral responsibility as distinct from both duty and rules of behavior prescribed by traditional social roles.

Today's guest has made it his mission to look at the chroniclers who have shaped our understanding of the past by looking at their personal history and taking into account how their personal story shaped their biases and therefore their interpretation of history. Author Richard Cohen talks to Anne Marie about his new book, Making History: The Storytellers Who Shaped the Past. Cohen says “Every author of a work of history is an interpreter, a filter, with his or her own personal input.”He has thoroughly investigated and compared the published works and private utterances of our greatest chroniclers to discover the rivalries, the religious beliefs, the lost loves, and the cultural pressures that informed their (and, subsequently, our) views of the world.Richard Cohen is the author of By the Sword, Chasing the Sun, and How to Write Like Tolstoy. He is the former publishing director of two leading London publishing houses, he has edited books that have won the Pulitzer, Booker, and Whitbread/Costa prizes, while twenty-one have been #1 bestsellers. He has written for most UK quality newspapers as well as for The New York Times Book Review and The Wall Street Journal, and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.Resources:Mentioned in Interview:Edward Gibbon: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_GibbonShakespeare: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_ShakespeareLeo Tolstoy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leo_TolstoyAleksandr Solzhenitsyn: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandr_SolzhenitsynThe Gulag Archipelago: An Experiment in Literary Investigation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gulag_ArchipelagoWilliam Hickling Prescott: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_H._PrescottHugh Trevor Roper: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hugh_Trevor-RoperDavid Knowles: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Knowles_(scholar)A.J.P.

BHA Podcast & Blast, Ep. 132, Corner Crossing in Wyoming with Ryan Callaghan, Liz Lynch and Jared Oakleaf Most of us have been following the case: four hunters from Missouri who used a homemade ladder to cross from one section of public land to the next without setting foot on private land…and the hard-fought court cases that ensued in Carbon County, Wyoming. It's a case that may define public access to public lands for decades to come. Yet it is more than that. It's about the resurgence of privatization of public assets in America, a harsh echo from the Gilded Age. It's a reminder that plutocracy never sleeps, that the public trust is never truly safe and that, as Frederick Douglass said best, “Power concedes nothing without a demand.” Come listen to this discussion, recorded live at BHA's 11th annual North American Rendezvous with MeatEater's Ryan Callaghan and Liz Lynch and Jared Oakleaf of the Wyoming chapter of BHA: It's a deep dive into the Wyoming corner crossing case, 200 years in the making. It's a story of old range wars, land giveaways and ancient doctrines of law. Explore with us the possibilities that “bruising someone's airspace with the points of one's hips or shoulders” can be an offense worthy of full-bore prosecution…at least in the eyes of some folks.

In anger, you have fear and are easily manipulated. People hate the truth that Trayvon was a thug. Have love and don't sugarcoat the truth. BOND Archive Sunday Service, July 28, 2013: Jesse Lee Peterson asks the people who has fear, and who has love. You can't have both! Jesse describes hateful backlash to his comments to Piers Morgan on CNN that everybody knows that Trayvon Martin was a thug. Even Christian black pastors cursed Jesse out, accusing him of being paid, and then turning around and saying they'd "pray for him." Jesse tells his story of anger resulting in fear and blindly following false black leaders. Deceivers don't care about you; they manipulate you! Over the years, well-meaning people have tried to get Jesse to soften the harsh truth he tells. But Jesse shares his message the way God gives him to say it. Frederick Douglass said the best thing to do for the negro is nothing. Let them build themselves up. One Hispanic man resented Jesse calling Trayvon a "thug," because he too has resented "racial profiling." He's been followed and discriminated against in stores by whites and Asians. He assumes the same happened to Trayvon, and feels Jesse's given George Zimmerman a "pass." But black Americans and Hispanics have not corrected their young people who've established a bad reputation. Have understanding, and don't be so easily manipulated. Nobody using this incident to stir outrage and gain influence has any love for Trayvon Martin or you. Jesse closes with a quote stating that fear is based on lies. As Christians, we should overcome trauma, and not follow the crowd, nor divide-and-conquer incitement. God makes a way.

The manifesto for the Sojourners for Truth and Justice starts with: “A Call To Negro Women! Negro women of every town and state arise, come to Washington DC September 29 - October 1, and demand of the President, the Justice Department, the State Department, and the Congress absolute, unconditional redress of grievances.”  The year was 1951, post World War II. A group of 132 Black women responded to the call and traveled from across the US to the nation's capital. Among them were some of the most progressive and inspired Black women activists, artists, and thinkers of the time, including Alice Childress, Shirley DuBois, Esther Cooper Jackson, Charlotta Bass, Louise Thompson Patterson, and Mary Church Terrell. Women whose stories we will discuss as part of today's walk.   These women gathered, first at the home of Frederick Douglass, where 21-year old playwright  Lorraine Hansberry, addressed the crowd and read from the manifesto, “We can not, must not, and will no longer in sight of God or man sit by and watch our lives destroyed by an unreasonable and unreasoning hate that meets out to us every kind of death it is possible for a human being to die.”  With a clear agenda and unshakeable courage, the Sojourners for Truth and Justice took their fight directly to the White House, unapologetically focusing their message on the needs of Black women. Their work continued the legacy of Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth and was a precursor to the March on Washington, and every Women's March of the present day.  Lace-up and learn with us today! These are the heroes that our community needs to know about.

The Exodus—the story of the Israelites' freedom from Egyptian slavery 3,000 years ago—is the ultimate story of freedom. And not just for Jews. But for people seeking liberation from subjugation in so many other times and places. Including here in America.  From the founding fathers, to abolitionists like Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglas, to presidents like Lincoln and leaders like Martin Luther King Jr, the themes and symbols and moral truths of the Exodus story have been at the core of how Americans seeking freedom from tyranny have seen themselves. One could argue that without the Exodus there might be no America. To make that case on the eve of Passover—and to take us on a tour of the way the Exodus has been used throughout American history—Rabbi Meir Soloveichik, who teaches at Yeshiva University and helms the oldest synagogue in the United States.  You don't need to be a believer to love this episode. You just need to be concerned with how divided we have become, how we have lost a shared sense of reality, a shared sense of ethics, and shared stories from which we can draw universal meaning and inspiration.

We know Frederick Douglass as a towering figure in America's fight for the abolition of slavery in the United States. In the early days of his ascent, he was allied with and managed by publisher William Lloyd Garrison and “The Contessa,” Maria Weston Chapman. In her new book The Color Of Abolition: How a Printer, a Prophet, and a Contessa Moved a Nation, our guest Linda Hirshman reveals the details of the tumultuous relationship between the three, and how it changed history. Praise For The Color Of Abolition: How A Printer, A Prophet, And A Contessa Moved A Nation… "Hirshman's book is a lively depiction of the antislavery movement, in which the three charismatic characters at the heart of her story provide an engaging avenue into the competing philosophies and strategies that continually challenged abolitionism's unity and effectiveness. Her writing is breezy, designed to engage readers who are not historians and whose interests may lie more in the present than the past." — Washington Post “Hirshman brings much-needed attention to the little-known triangulation between Garrison, Douglass, and Chapman, opening a new realm of inquiry for readers of the history of slavery and abolition.” — Library Journal “Linda Hirshman has two goals. One is to tell the story of the American antislavery movement. This broad narrative provides background for the author's other focus, a group portrait of three deeply intertwined abolitionists [and reflects] the author's interest in the current ‘lively and painful conversation about the possibility and conditions of an interracial alliance.'” — Wall Street Journal “Page-turning reading . . . . a wonderful cataloging of Americans, white and Black, who devoted their lives to ending slavery.” — Boston Globe “Linda Hirshman adroitly shows us that in the celebrated break up between Douglass and Garrison, a pivotal actor was Maria Weston Chapman. A brilliant but intrusive soul, Chapman stood watch over both men from a manager's desk in Boston. Beyond intrigue, though, this book provides a splendid lens into the nature of both the moral and political wings of abolitionism at their turbulent turning point. The ideologies of antislavery emerge here from vivid portraits of these three fascinating and rivalrous characters.” — David W. Blight, Yale University, and author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom “By lucidly untangling the abolitionist movement's complex web of alliances, Hirshman sheds light on the antebellum period and the dynamics of social movements in general. American history buffs will be engrossed.” — Publishers Weekly "A rousing account of America's one truly great crusade, studded with fascinating characters playing for the highest of stakes: freedom.” — Megan Marshall, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Margaret Fuller “Viewing the abolitionist movement from a unique angle, Hirshman shows how the breakdown of the alliance among [activists Frederick Douglass, William Llloyd Garrison, and Maria Weston Chapman] was fueled in part by Douglass' rising fame, burgeoning dissent among the nation's political parties, and, not least, Weston Chapman's aspersions about Douglass' work ethic and character. A well-researched history of the fraught path to emancipation.” — Kirkus Reviews --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alyssa-milano-sorry-not-sorry/message
