Building Bridges: Right Takes Over Supreme Court: Democracy in Chains, Segment 1

4 days 14 hours ago
Right Wing Takeover of the Supreme Court: Democracy in Chains: the Deep History of the Radical Right s Stealth Plan for America with Nancy MacLean, Author and Professor, History & Public Policy at Duke University The Janus Supreme Court decision in June and our current struggle over Trump s pick for the Supreme Court vacancy, are only the most recent manifestations of the Right s decades long game plan to not only unravel the New Deal of the 1930's & the civil rights revolution of the 1960' but beyond that to establish property rights over democratic rights as the basis for our government.. Prof. MacLean traces this counter evolution's 60 year plan to eliminate unions, suppress voting rights, privatize public education, and stop action on climate change. Their agenda is not just to alter specific legislation or court decisions or who gets elected but to fundamentally alter the rules of democratic governance by voter suppression and gerrymandering along with instituting Constitutional and judicial changes. Behind today s headlines of billionaires taking over our government is a secretive political establishment with long, deep, and troubling roots. Billionaires launched this movement with the aid of an academic and intellectual elite. And leading this charge was multi-billionaire Charles Koch and Professor James McGill Buchanan who forged his ideas about government in a last gasp attempt to preserve the Southern white elite s power. Prof. Buchanan and Charles Koch developed a diabolical, plan to undermine the ability of the majority to use its numbers to level the playing field between the rich and powerful and the rest of us. Now their strategy is bearing a poisonous fruit. which we must understand to effectively fight back.
