COVID may have suspended parliamentary debate, but important decisions were still being taken behind the scenes. So how did we do politics during the pandemic, and how can we do better? Ros Taylor talks to Aveek Bhattacharya, chief economist of the Social Market Foundation, about co-editing his new book, Political Philosophy in a Pandemic, “zombie governments,” and whether COVID shaming is ever acceptable. “Even if you think you know the COVID guidelines, you might not know the rules around a particular case.” “We have a zombie government, but we have had no option to vote it out.” “Democracy isn't just about voting. It's about experience and debating.” “The rise in tuition fees is a tax on younger people.” “The boom has only benefitted those who got on the property market in time.” “We normally think of children as the most vulnerable. But COVID has shown that that isn't always the case.” “We haven't seen economies behave like this before, so we've have to take calculated risks.” Presented by Ros Taylor.

In this episode of The Open Door, panelists Jim Hanink, Mario Ramos-Reyes, and Christopher Zehnder discuss political philosophy. We'll introduce the work of the late John Rawls and offer a critical examination of his legacy. Their special and welcome guest is Christopher Wolfe. Prof. Wolfe is Distinguished Research Scholar at the University of Dallas and Emeritus Professor at Marquette University. He is the author of The Rise of Modern Judicial Review, Judicial Activism, and Natural Law Liberalism.The following are among the questions we'll ask. 1. Just who was John Rawls and why is he important?2. Why was Rawls critical of the then-dominant utilitarianism when he wrote A Theory of Justice?3. What is the difference between a comprehensive theory of justice and a limited political conception of it?4. Could you state and explain Rawls's two principles of justice?5. How does Rawls make use of his “original position” thought experiment?6. Could you explain his concept of public reason?7. Why does Rawls reject the “Perfectionism” of St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Ignatius of Loyola?8. As a natural law thinker, what alternative to political liberalism do you suggest?9. How attuned are Catholic intellectuals to Rawls's challenges to a Christian worldview?

200 species a day currently go extinct. 80% of the people in the world live on less than $1/day. These are some of the facts that Alnoor underlines during this insightful episode.   Alnoor acquired a Masters Degree in Political Philosophy in London School of Economics and Political Science. He is one of the Co-Founders of Tierra Valiente ‘aka' Brave Earth, an alternative community in the Costa Rican Jungle where people get to exercise the atrophied muscle of living in community and serves as a center for applied cultural transition,  Alnoor's main area of focus is currently the following inquiry: How do we create transition infrastructure for post-capitalist reality?  Speaking with Alnoor, it becomes clear that our current neo-liberal capitalist socio-economic system is doomed to collapse. It's not a matter of “if”, but a matter of when and how.   That is not necessarily a bad thing given the current impact we are having on our planet and the lives of so many.   I met Alnoor at the Visionaries Immersion retreat in July 2021 where he was a keynote speaker, and I was blown away by how knowledgeable he was. I was also intrigued by his unique approach of not being quick to offer answers and solutions when discussing these important topics.   One thing is clear, he is not interested in more followers nor being anyone's savior. In fact he points to how our desire for quick solutions and saviors is a product of our culture having gone astray.   I'm very excited to share this episode with you. It might be the type of episode that you will either love or hate. I asked Alnoor some tough questions, including “don't you think you sound like a Mr. doom and gloom?” I can't wait for you to hear his answer.  I really appreciated this opportunity to reflect on the current state of our world and to consider that perhaps we chose to come here to this planet at this specific time to serve the world and humanity through what just might be the greatest transition in human history.   As Alnoor says, what archetypal role will you choose to play during this transition?  Happy listening! Subscribe to the Love Is Our Nature Blog: LoveIsOurNature.com Listen to this Podcast on: Spotify: http://bit.ly/LIONpodcast Apple Podcasts: http://bit.ly/LION-podcast​ Google Podcasts: http://bit.ly/LIONgcast Watch the Video Version on YouTube: http://bit.ly/LION-YT

We talk to our friend Henry—a lawyer and expert in transformative technologies—about the weird and wonderful phenomenon of NFTs and digital art. If you've ever wanted to impress your friends with your incredible knowledge of words like "blockchain", "minting", "Proof of Stake", "fungible", this is the podcast for you! We talk about: what NFTs are, how to make them, whether they're a fad or here to stay, the environmental impact, criminal uses, valuing digital art. Amie is there the whole way to ask the "silly questions" and keep the conversation grounded. We try to get to grips with this new technology and have an honest conversation about what it means for artists. Our hope is that, by the end of the conversation, NFTs will lose their intimidation factor. A bit more about Henry: He Worked as a lawyer at King & Wood Mallesons, focusing predominantly in the areas of FinTech, blockchain, and big data. Recently finished his Masters in Political Philosophy at LSE where he focused on the political and ethical challenges of transformative technologies.

Diving into social contract theory, Charlie and Dr. Habib discuss Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Niccolò Machiavelli. Can these men trace their ideological DNA to ANTIFA, BLM, and other groups? Are they portrayed by history accurately, or was there much more nuance to their histories and philosophies than what is often taught?

These are the kinds of questions political philosophers furrow their brows and scratch their chins trying to answer. In 1971, an American philosopher named John Rawls introduced a new answer: justice as fairness.  Michele Moody-Adams is the Joseph Straus Professor of Political Philosophy and Legal Theory at Columbia University.

From the Essay:  "There is really not much sense in eating a croissant unless it is very good. Though one should be careful of demanding such perfection that he misses in this life the fact that what is is good even if it's not perfect.  The search for perfection does not necessarily exclude the less than perfect."   "In seeking the perfect croissant, a worthy enterprise as it seems to me, I wonder what indeed am I looking for in all that I do.  It is a question that ought to arise in the pursuit of any real good I think--including the perfect croissant."   Fr. James Schall retired from teaching Political Philosophy at Georgetown University in December of 2012.  But he was not done teaching.  Through a partnership with the International Catholic University Fr. Schall self-recorded many of his well-known essays and lectures, including a full course based on his popular “Introduction to Political Philosophy.”

On July 19th, all legal restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic are coming to an end in England. That includes things like social distancing, keeping 2-meters apart from strangers, and the wearing of facemasks on public transport and at airports. Instead, the prime minister said the government would be relying on the personal responsibility of individuals to take any necessary precautions. But is this move by the UK government guided by science or ideology? In a pandemic, when our health doesn't depend only how responsible we are, but on how others behave around us, is personal responsibility an appropriate principle to appeal to? Is the function of the language of personal responsibility to merely shift the blame from government failure onto the public? And is the left's tendency to resist acknowledgement of the role of personal responsibility in people's life outcomes in danger of undermining our sense of autonomy and control over our lives?  Toby Buckle is the creator and host of The Political Philosophy Podcast This podcast is created in partnership with The Philosopher, the UK's longest running public philosophy journal: https://www.thephilosopher1923.org Artwork by Nick HallidayMusic by Rowan Mcilvride

Last December Liz Truss made a speech. The Minister for Women and Equalities spoke about her memories of being at school in Leeds. She was taught about sexism and racism, she said, but not enough time was spent on being taught how to read and write. "These ideas," said Truss, "have their roots in post-modernist philosophy - pioneered by Foucault - that put societal power structures and labels ahead of individuals and their endeavours." So do Foucault's ideas pose a real danger to social and cultural life in Britain? Or is he a "bogeyman" deployed by some politicians to divide and distract us from real issues? In this edition of Analysis, writer and academic Shahidha Bari tries to make sense of Foucault's influence in the UK - and asks whether his ideas really do have an effect on Britain today.

John Rawls’s A Theory of Justice (1971) changed the face of modern political philosophy by reinventing the question of what constitutes fairness. From ‘the veil of ignorance’ to ‘reflective equilibrium’ it introduced new ways of thinking about the problem of justice along with new problems for thinking about politics.
