Law and Legitimacy
LAL Live: More on Dobbs; Harvard on the Cusp of Reparations Payments? + W. Michael Boyer (NPS June 27)

Norm is joined in the first hour as he is at the start of every workweek by the co-host and producer of Law and Legitimacy and North Carolina-based attorney at Carolina Craft Legal, W. Michael Boyer.  Last week, Norm and Mike capped off the end of a rapidly crescendoing news week by analyzing the mechanisms and likely impacts of SCOTUS's decisions in New York Pistol and Rifle Association and Dobbs (Second Amendment and Abortion cases respectively). With so much cultural and political fallout from the latter, the two decide to "wade" back into the waters of the Dobbs decision in today's episode, this time focusing on the relationship between abortion and the right to privacy. Why? Norm focuses on an opinion piece penned to the New York Times and which appeared in the Saturday edition, written by none other than Senator Elizabeth Warren. While Senator Warren makes calls for abortion to be recognized as a federal constitutional right, Norm reminds listeners of Senator Warren's parallel preoccupation and support of the emerging public health state.  On the heels of nearly two years of top-down pressure from both state and private corporations coercing individuals to receive coronavirus innoculations, Norm queries whether our current concept of the individual right to privacy is under existential threat.  Mike illustrates his working mental model for the politics of abortion, privacy, capital punishment, and the emerging public health state (which both Norm and Mike understand as functionally the same as an emerging federal police power).  The two receive a glowing review from a caller thanking Norm for speaking plainly and with substantive merit to the public every day.  The two end the hour by unpacking Lanier v. President and Fellows of Harvard College, a case originating in Massachusetts in March 2019, dealing with Tamara Lanier's claim for negligent infliction of emotional distress. Specifically, Ms. Lanier claims—and the Supreme Judicial Court apparently agrees—that Harvard breached its duty of care to her in its treatment of her claims that she is the direct lineal descendant of one of the salves depicted in certain daguerreotypes dating to 1850.  With the limited time remaining Norm expresses his relief that this SCOTUS term has come to an end, and analyzes a view of the lesser regarded decisions that have been handed down.  Norm is joined by Brian Festa in the second hour. Listeners may recall Brian Festa from previous Law and Legitimacy and LAL Live episodes. Brian is the face of We The Patriots USA and a great friend to the LAL family. Norm asks Brian to give his opinion on the public reaction to Dobbs and to extrapolate those opinions to a larger criticism of American society.  Like, share, and subscribe!

Marcia Franklin talks with Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and author Fredrik Logevall, Ph.D. about the antecedents to the Vietnam War. Logevall, the Laurence D. Belfer Professor of International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School and a professor of history at Harvard College, won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize in History for his book, "Embers of War." It examined France's colonial involvement in Vietnam, and how and why U.S. support of the French led to the Vietnam War. In its citation, the Pulitzer committee called the work a "balanced, deeply researched history of how, as French colonial rule faltered, a succession of American leaders moved step by step down a road toward full-blown war." The book also won the Francis Parkman Prize from the Society of American Historians. Franklin talks with Logevall about why he felt it was important for people to know about the pre-history of the Vietnam War, whether the war could have been avoided, and how the decisions made before and during the Vietnam War have affected our country's foreign policy since then. The author or editor of nine books, Professor Logevall previously taught at Cornell, where he was the director of the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, and at the University of California Santa Barbara, where he co-founded the Center for Cold War Studies. He is the past president of the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations. Franklin spoke with him in Idaho Falls, where he gave the keynote speech at the Idaho Humanities Council's 2016 Eastern Idaho Distinguished Humanities Lecture. Originally Aired: 04/29/2016

There's so much goodness in this conversation with Brian Buckley, Executive Director of The Southwest Native-American Foundation. From varied points of view, Brian focuses on the fullness of what it means to be human. From the practical to the sublime, he takes us along as he recounts his life story. As he talks about his life path and the wisdom he's gained as a result of reflection and contemplation, it's easy to sense the depth and vastness of Brian's heart. Consistent throughout this conversation is the sense that Brian was deeply impacted by his Irish immigrant roots. His grandparents emigrated to the United States. Raised in an Irish enclave in a Boston neighborhood, Brian shares his childhood experience of being in a clan of children of Irish immigrants. This theme recurs again when Brian shares a poem by Seamus Heaney. Brian had an opportunity to experience Buddhism and meditation when overseas as a volunteer for the Peace Corps. He speaks about the contrast in his experience between Buddhism and Irish Catholicism. The Hoffman Process helped Brian discover the depth of his emotional self and the impact of his Irish-rooted emotional patterns. Brian speaks about both the spiritual and practical aspects of the Process. He shares about the nature of his Spiritual Self and also speaks about the practical nature of the gifts of the Hoffman Process. He came home with learning skills for day-to-day that he can bring to the dinner table, both literally and metaphorically. More about Brian Buckley: Brian, the son of Cathy and Paul Buckley, was born in West Roxbury, MA. As a young child, he witnessed Boston tear itself apart over issues of race and equality. These themes would inform much of his later life. After attending the Roxbury Latin School and graduating from Harvard College with a degree in psychology, Brian began teaching social studies at Franklin K.Lane High School in Brooklyn. Following his time teaching, Brian served in the United States Peace Corps in Udon Thani, Thailand.  Upon returning to the States, he instructed at Harvard University as a Teaching Fellow for Dr. Robert Coles' course, The Literature of Social Reflection. Brian received the Derek Bok Award for Excellence in Teaching. He received an Ed.M from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and an M.A. in English from the University of Massachusetts. Poetry informs much of his inner landscape. Brian continues to teach as an elementary school special education teacher at a public Montessori school. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Brian founded the Barbara Henry Courage in Teaching Award to honor the work of Barbara Henry. Barbara was the only teacher to report to work to welcome and teach Ruby Bridges. Ruby, a six-year-old first-grade student of African-American descent, was the only child to come to school on the first day of de-segregation in 1960 New Orleans. Fulfilling a personal call: Brian served as a high school teacher and United States Peace Corps Fellow on the Navajo Nation. At the end of this time, he founded the Southwest Native-American Foundation (SWNAF). The Foundation assists students of the tribes of the Southwest in gaining greater access to higher education. As Executive Director of SWNAF, Brian, along with the SWNAF Board and Donors, has assisted in the matriculation of 500 students to college and graduate school.

The vehement secularism all around us is no secret. I have seen its pointed perseverance in at least three settings recently, and most powerfully at my 50th Harvard College class reunion. In all three settings, 'God' was sedulously left out of the discourse, and, it felt to me, conscientiously. Nothing new in that, to be sure; but it made me reflect on the Christian Church, at least in its traditional manifestation, and what is it that "triggers" the sharp antagonism. But I came up with a slightly different answer. Had recently read John Weaver's book Evangelicals and the Arts in Fiction from McFarland Books, that wonderful publishing house which specializes in sincerest monographs on subjects such as the history of wax-museum horror films or 1940s Mummy movies. Weaver's book is counter-intuitive in the extreme, and contributes an insight that I have read nowhere else. So maybe we can learn from contemporary secularism, albeit from a different direction. The cast concludes with one of the most unusual Christian pop songs ever recorded, and filmed, from Peter Watkins' 1967 "anti-Establishment" movie Privilege, starring Paul Jones, the lead singer of Manfred Mann (i.e., "Doo Wah Diddy"). In brief, you can learn something about yourself by studying what others dislike about you. LUV U.

Rebuilding our nation's manufacturing muscle.   The supply chain is in the news lately, with most stories about it focusing on the end results for consumers.

This week, we talk to two experts about how to achieve those goals.  John Pouland John Pouland explains a study that details how the conventional political wisdom has completely missed the biggest electoral earthquake of the last decade, specifically highlighting how both Democratic and Republican parties have discounted and misjudged their appeals to voters in manufacturing-heavy working-class towns.  Tom Conway As head of North America's largest industrial union, Tom Conway speaks for over 800,000 workers.

If we all weren't so cynical, we might expect professional ethicists—or say a professor of ethics or morality at a university—to also be a really morally virtuous and good person. And by extension, you might also expect a theologian to be a person of deeper faith. And that's because intellectual reflection about matters of justice, right and wrong, God and human flourishing all cut to the core of what it means to be human, and the things you discuss in an ethics or theology course, if you took those ideas seriously, just might change the way you live.Today, in our series on the Future of Theology, Matt Croasmun hosts Eric Gregory, Professor of Religion at Princeton University and author of Politics and the Order of Love: An Augustinian Ethic of Democratic Citizenship. Eric reflects on what it's like to teach theology in a secular institution—the good, the bad, and the ugly of that exercise; the complications of making professors of humanities, ethics, and religion into moral or spiritual exemplars; the centrality of the good life in the purpose of higher education; and the importance of discerning and articulating the multifarious visions of the good life that are presumed by the institutional cultures in which we live, and move, and have our being.About Eric GregoryEric Gregory is Professor of Religion at Princeton University. He is the author of Politics and the Order of Love: An Augustinian Ethic of Democratic Citizenship (University of Chicago Press, 2008), and articles in a variety of edited volumes and journals, including the Journal of Religious Ethics, Modern Theology, Studies in Christian Ethics, and Augustinian Studies. His interests include religious and philosophical ethics, theology, political theory, law and religion, and the role of religion in public life. In 2007 he was awarded Princeton's President's Award for Distinguished Teaching. A graduate of Harvard College, he earned an M.Phil. and Diploma in Theology from the University of Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, and his doctorate in Religious Studies from Yale University. He has received fellowships from the Erasmus Institute, University of Notre Dame, the Safra Foundation Center for Ethics, Harvard University, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and The Tikvah Center for Law & Jewish Civilization at New York University School of Law. Among his current projects is a book tentatively titled, The In-Gathering of Strangers: Global Justice and Political Theology, which examines secular and religious perspectives on global justice. Former Chair of the Humanities Council at Princeton, he also serves on the the editorial board of the Journal of Religious Ethics and sits with the executive committee of the University Center for Human Values.Production NotesThis podcast featured religious ethicist Eric Gregory and biblical scholar Matt CroasmunEdited and Produced by Evan RosaHosted by Evan RosaA Production of the Yale Center for Faith & Culture at Yale Divinity School https://faith.yale.edu/aboutSupport For the Life of the World podcast by giving to the Yale Center for Faith & Culture: https://faith.yale.edu/give

On March 27, 1926, Frank (Francis Russell) O'Hara was born in Maryland. He grew up in Massachusetts, and later studied piano at the New England Conservatory in Boston from 1941 to 1944. O'Hara then served in the South Pacific and Japan as a sonarman on the destroyer USS Nicholas during World War II.Following the war, O'Hara studied at Harvard College, where he majored in music and worked on compositions and was deeply influenced by contemporary music, his first love, as well as visual art. He also wrote poetry at that time and read the work of Arthur Rimbaud, Stéphane Mallarmé, Boris Pasternak, and Vladimir Mayakovsky. While at Harvard, O'Hara met John Ashbery and soon began publishing poems in the Harvard Advocate. Despite his love for music, O'Hara changed his major and left Harvard in 1950 with a degree in English. He then attended graduate school at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and received his MA in 1951. That autumn, O'Hara moved into an apartment in New York. He was soon employed at the front desk of the Museum of Modern Art and continued to write seriously.O'Hara's early work was considered both provocative and provoking. In 1952, his first volume of poetry, A City Winter, and Other Poems, attracted favorable attention; his essays on painting and sculpture and his reviews for ArtNews were considered brilliant. O'Hara became one of the most distinguished members of the New York School of poets, which also included Ashbery, James Schuyler, and Kenneth Koch. O'Hara's association with painters Larry Rivers, Jackson Pollock, and Jasper Johns, also leaders of the New York School, became a source of inspiration for his highly original poetry. He attempted to produce with words the effects these artists had created on canvas. In certain instances, he collaborated with the painters to make “poem-paintings,” paintings with word texts.O'Hara's most original volumes of verse, Meditations in an Emergency (1956) and Lunch Poems (1964), are impromptu lyrics, a jumble of witty talk, journalistic parodies, and surrealist imagery. O'Hara continued working at the Museum of Modern Art throughout his life, curating exhibitions and writing introductions and catalogs for exhibits and tours. On July 25, 1966, while vacationing on Fire Island, Frank O'Hara was killed in a sand buggy accident. He was forty years old.From https://poets.org/poet/frank-ohara. For more information about Frank O'Hara:“Frank O'Hara”: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poets/frank-ohara“To the Film Industry in Crisis”: https://poets.org/poem/film-industry-crisis“The Ongoing Influence of Frank O'Hara, the Art World's Favorite Poet”: https://www.artsy.net/article/artsy-editorial-ongoing-influence-frank-ohara-art-worlds-favorite-poetMeditations in An Emergency: https://groveatlantic.com/book/meditations-in-an-emergency/

Join America's Roundtable co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy with Professor John Yoo, Emanuel Heller Professor of Law at the University of California at Berkeley, Nonresident Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University and Former Deputy Assistant Attorney General at the U.S. Department of Justice. The enlightening conversation focuses on the vital issues impacting our nation including the inexorable growth of an unaccountable administrative state, the significance of "natural rights" and the future of the courts, the First and Second Amendments and on recent developments in China and the Indo-Pacific region. From CSPAN: “What happened at the Court is tremendously bad,” remarked Justice Clarence Thomas about the recently-leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion that would strike down Roe v. Wade. Justice Thomas elaborated, saying that the leak does damage to the rule of law and institutions in general. “You can't have a civil society--a free society--without a stable legal system,” he added. His remarks came during an interview at the Old Parkland Conference in Dallas. He also discussed other issues including free speech at colleges and universities, the influence that his mentor Thomas Sowell had on him, his disagreement on always abiding by legal precedent, and his disapproval of protests that happen near public officials' homes. Source: https://www.c-span.org/video/?517582-1/justice-thomas-leak-supreme-court-opinion-damages-rule-law "Article I of the Constitution states that “all legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.” That separates the law-making power of Congress from both the executive and judicial branches.

Should Supreme Court Justices Believe in Natural Rights? — Newsweek (https://www.aei.org/op-eds/should-supreme-court-justices-believe-in-natural-rights/) By John Yoo Brief excerpt: "In her answer, Judge Jackson accurately identifies the Declaration of Independence as one of the leading explications of natural rights in American history. But if she has no position on natural rights, as she wrote in response to Senator Cruz, then she has no position on the Declaration of Independence. Her answers did not come under the pressured circumstances of live hearings, but instead came as written answers to written questions after the end of her Judiciary Committee hearings. We should view them not as a mistake, but as her carefully considered views on the matter. Again, she puts herself in opposition to the Great Emancipator, who once said “I never had a feeling politically that did not spring from the sentiments embodied in the Declaration of Independence.” In an 1859 letter, Lincoln memorably wrote on the occasion of Thomas Jefferson's birthday: All honor to Jefferson—to the man who, in the concrete pressure of a struggle for national independence by a single people, had the coolness, forecast, and capacity to introduce into a merely revolutionary document, an abstract truth, applicable to all men and all times, and so to embalm it there, that to-day, and in all coming days, it shall be a rebuke and a stumbling-block to the very harbingers of re-appearing tyranny and oppression."

Lisa van der Sluijs is a college senior and world traveler who shared her experiences as a solo female backpacker at Harvard College during Womens Week. She is joined by host Stephen P. Wood for a frank discussion on backpacking solo. One of the biggest issues pertains to gender equity for solo backpackers. There are many who advocate against this practice citing safety concerns for solo-backpacking women. Lisa counters with the fact that there is nowhere that is truly safe for women, and that this is a global issue. Stephen and Lisa discuss some of the things that can make this practice safer, as Lisa shares some of her own experiences as a solo backpacker. She also shares some of her experiences, including solo backpacking in the Middle East. The conversation leads to a discussion on how more women, LGBQT and non-binary individuals can get started, stay safe and enjoy the outdoors and travel. Lisa is a graduating senior at Harvard College, where she studies Political Science and Middle Eastern Studies. She is both Dutch and German, and grew up in Groningen, in the north of the Netherlands. Outside of academics, Lisa really enjoys outdoor sports so you will often find her hiking, running, skiing, biking, or sailing. Lisa also likes to explore new places: she works in Austria as a ski instructor most winters, studied in Lebanon, interned for non-profits in Turkey and Jordan, and has solo backpacked many countries in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Lisa is passionate about solo backpacking on a budget and tries to encourage everyone (but especially women) to go out and explore the world by themselves.

Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova. Friend to the show, Roger L. Martin, made his third appearance on the What's Next! Podcast to discuss the essentials of strategy and management, highlighting the launch of his new book A New Way to Think: Your Guide to Superior Management Effectiveness. Roger is Professor Emeritus at the Rotman School of Management at University of Toronto, where he served as Dean from 1998 to 2013, and as Institute Director of the Martin Prosperity Institute from 2013 to 2019. In 2013, he was named Global Dean of the Year and in 2017, he was named the world's number one management thinker by Thinkers50. He has published 12 previous books including When More Is Not Better and Playing to Win (with A. G. Lafley), which won the award for Best Book of 2012-13 by Thinkers50. Martin is a trusted strategy adviser to the CEOs of many global companies. A Canadian from Wallenstein, Ontario, he holds a BA from Harvard College and an MBA from Harvard Business School.      THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…  business leaders and managers that are looking to enhance their operating strategy with an alternative model that ultimately increases effectiveness.   TODAY'S MAIN MESSAGE… The best metrics for success are based on past successful experiences, and conventional wisdom would say to imitate the dominant model to create that same success. But you must also view those strategies in context of the challenges and resources of a specific situation, because models cannot be copy pasted for an exact situation.  The execution of an idea is just as important as the idea itself, and in order to achieve true success, the strategy is always evolving to create a better and more innovative strategy for success.   WHAT I LOVE MOST… For Roger, there isn't any singular model of success, but rather success comes from building a strategic mindset to approach and solve problems. The solutions that we often look for may not always be obvious, but by simply being willing to experiment with the past models of success, we can come out on the other end better than before.     Running time: 32:37 Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn   Find Roger online: Official Website Twitter LinkedIn   Roger's Book: A New Way to Think: Your Guide to Superior Management Effectiveness
