"Nancy McLean wrote the democracy in chains the deep history of the radical right's stealth plan for America published in two thousand seventeen to mclane surprise. Much of her story. Wound up centering. On a man named James Buchanan not the pre-civil war president but a fairly obscure twentieth century academic. So James McGill Buchanan And if listeners haven't heard of him don't feel bad I never had when I started and most people have not He was quite content to be in the shadows. Unlike some Buchanan was born in Tennessee in nineteen nineteen. His grandfather was a populist. Governor of Tennessee in the eighteen nineties and James called himself a socialist as a young man his time as a Grad student at the University of Chicago converted him to Pro Market Economics interesting personal history but he went on to become the first US southerner to win the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences which he was awarded in the Reagan era. One thousand nine hundred eighty six And I came across him because of his intervention in this Virginia schools fight. It was a school's fight that came in the wake of the Brown decision. Remember in that case the N. double ACP led by attorney. Thurgood Marshall argued that segregated schooling was inherently unequal and did grave damage to black children attorneys for the southern states claimed their school systems were separate but equal and they made a states rights. Argument Education should be left to the states and the feds should but out chief justice earl. Warren had been appointed to the Supreme Court just months before by the Republican Eisenhower. This would become another reason for conservatives to be mad at Ike on May Seventeenth Nineteen Fifty Four. Warren delivered the unanimous landmark decision. We conclude that in the field of public education. The doctrine of separate but equal has no place separate educational facilities are inherently unequal. The court said segregation deprived black children of their right to equal protection of the laws guaranteed by the fourteenth amendment. With this decision. The Warren Court revived one of the major. Constitutional amendments passed during reconstruction almost ninety years before in Virginia. The white elite is outraged in early nineteen fifty-six the states all white leadership launches what it calls. Massive Resistance Against School integration. The state legislature passes a law allowing the governor to simply close any schools that try to desegregate in response to federal orders. Public Elementary or secondary schools in which white and colored children are mic. Antone Javi entitled to any funds from the State Treasury operation. That's Virginia Governor Thomas Stanley. His successor follows through and uses that law in Nineteen Fifty Eight Governor J Lindsay Almond shuts down schools in Norfolk Charlottesville and front royal kicking. Thousands of white children out of school rather than see them share their classrooms with black students in one thousand nine hundred nine federal and state courts find the Virginia Law on constitutional. The courts ordered the schools to open and desegregate by this time. Most White Virginians are ready to relent. Many business leaders and moderate white parents now support plans for gradual desegregation but enter James McGill. Buchanan is friends called him. Jim If you years earlier Jim. Buchanan had opened a center at the University of Virginia named for Thomas. Jefferson in devoted to libertarian economics. Historian Nancy McLean at this moment. This crucial moment in nineteen fifty nine. He and his colleague at the University of Virginia Charlottesville issued a report that basically tried to refute the moderates and to push for effectively privatization of Virginia public schools as a way of evading the federal courts but also using the economist language that this would create competition and monopoly and supposedly bring better schools. Report suggested a way. Out of the dilemma mistake government could just stop running schools for good. Buchanan and his colleague said government should fund education for all children through vouchers given to families but schools should be run is competing private businesses being private. They could choose which students to admit with regard to race or anything else. The report did not discuss race except to say the authors objected to quote involuntary or coercive segregation and involuntary integration. Today Buchanan's defenders insist. He was not a racist. In any case. Nancy McLean says Buchanan's argument for school privatization in that charged environment. Virginia nineteen fifty. Nine shows a special kind of anti-government zeal. It was such an odd thing to do after the federal courts had ruled after schools have been shut down in three Virginia counties in in the fall. Thirteen thousand white kids locked out of their schools by these massive resistors This movement of of you know again very moderate whites they intervened and I just thought who would do that is really quite taken aback by it in stunned so it got me paying attention to him and he became part of my project but it was some years actually before. I realized he was a key figure in his own. Right needed pursuing mclane came to see Jim. Buchanan is a key figure when she found later joined forces with Charles Coke Coke Brothers Charles. And his brother. David are among the world's richest people oil billionaires from Kansas and huge donors to right wing political causes for the last half century. Their Father Fred. Coke was an early funder of the John Birch Society. The far right group founded in the late fifties. Nancy says in nineteen sixty nine or seventy. Charles Coker came across Buchanan's anti-government writings and reached out. The two men shared a deep frustration. That they're extreme libertarian. Views were so unpopular. They saw what they considered a pernicious trust in government among most politicians academics and journalists in the early seventies Jim Buchanan wrote about the need to quote create support an activate an effective counter intelligentsia and he was also quite Plain spoken about how to do it. He said they needed to create a gravy train. That's his language a gravy train for kind of the care and feeding of this libertarian counterintelligence which is of course with Charles Coke that began to do coke brought a virtually unlimited source of funding Buchanan. And a few other academics brought the intellectual firepower together they began building an array of think tanks and advocacy groups and populating them with like minded recruits. The Director of the Center for Study of Science at the Cato Institute and Manager of the Heritage Foundation's MEESE legal center. Nice to see sir today. Those organizations provide an unending stream of op-eds cable. News commentary and legal and scholarly ammunition for the political right the Cato Institute of course Which started as the Charles Coke Foundation the Heritage Society? Charles Cope boasts that he provided seed money to the federalist society. That's been so much in the news with Brett Cavenaugh Seating on the Supreme Court. We now have a federalist society. Supreme Court majority the list goes on Americans for prosperity which provided the supposedly grassroots tea party movement with policy. Talking points and financial and organizational muscle the mercatus center which advocates government deregulation and Alec the American Legislative Exchange Council. Its members pass hundreds state laws every year cutting taxes and environmental regulations disempowering unions. It's really a stunning infrastructure. I at one point tried to keep track of it and we're talking about literally hundreds of organizations what is the ultimate goal of this movement. Mclean says Jim Buchanan. Who died in two thousand thirteen essentially wanted to undo the twentieth century? And said so this no sham that in the twentieth century as citizens started to organize as we rethought the obligations of the government to its people with things like the Wagner. Act that empowered workers the Social Security Act unemployment compensation antidiscrimination so forth and so on in his view. Those were all errors errors meaning not just policy that Buchanan and other hard core Libertarians. Didn't like but the illegitimate uses of government and I think actually for people to grasp. How radical this libertarian causes. It's helpful to know that they see only three legitimate functions for government so that is providing for the national defense ensuring the rule of law and guaranteeing social order in shorthand armies courts and police beyond that they do not think government should be going but then we got this sort of progressive movement around the turn of the and then that was finally put in play in the debacle that we went through in the new deal or just searching around for everything and as as John Hughes Economic. Historian once said the main thing you deal did was invent new ways to spend money and we've been living with that ever since that's Jim Buchanan in nineteen ninety-three interview fifteen years earlier in nineteen seventy eight. He was the interviewer on the right wing. Free to choose network talking with the iconic Austrian Libertarian Thinker Friedrich von Hayek. This is hijacked talking. Political strategy can nevertheless expect the majority of people to regain the belief in the Marcus. Such thing you can expect to come to dislike government into fields a bit later in their conversation. Jim Buchanan floats the extraordinary idea. That people who collect a government paycheck or receive any kind of government. Help should not be allowed to vote again. It goes back to the delusion of democracy in a way but We've got ourselves into situation. Where people who are direct recipients of government largest government transfers are given the franchise people who work directly for government giving given the franchise and we wouldn't question them not having it yet to me. That's there's no more overt conflict of interest then the French then the the franchise to those groups.

"But while the military industrial complex was becoming power behind the throne. It wasn't the only force undermining the democratic state. The media has been so dead wrong when it comes to stories about Russia and by the way while. All of that is alarming. It proves everything we have been saying on this program this deep state fourth branch of government as we're calling it doesn't care about getting the truth to you the American people and of course the media. They're the willing accomplices. Well right wing. Commentators like Fox announcer and trump coffee. Don Sean Hannity believe the deep state where the exist for the sole purpose of undermining the president that is meant to damage the president of the United States of America in reality. Something else was happening. Which is exactly what we have been seeing. I'm Nancy McLean. The William H Shave professor of history and public policy at Duke University and the author most recently of democracy and chains the deep history of the radical. Right's stealth plan for America. Where does the term corporate capture or the captured state mean to you that I think is a more accurate depiction of what's going on? Our government has already been captured because of the amount of political spending particularly dark money and the ways in which highly motivated corporate interest are deforming. Democracy have deformed democracy so that it's very difficult for the People's will to be felt on issues from retirement security to Clean Air and water to any one of a number of things. Professor McLean is a historian of social movements while researching how the state of Virginia was issuing state subsidized education vouchers for all white private schools. She stumbled across the writings of an obscure economist. By the name of James McGill Buchanan. Yeah if you've never heard of James Gilbey cannon don't feel bad because I had not heard from him when I started the research that became democracy and chance. I was actually pursuing a different story. He is probably the most influential thinker about democracy in our modern era a most influential American thicker about democracy and yet one that is almost unknown to the public. Start from a set. Of course a fundamental value presuppositions In which individual liberty is extremely important to me and it's important to me how people do organize their social lives and I like to think that the ideas that we have developed in public choice which is the research area with which I've been associated. Buchanan was a libertarian. Someone who identified with the economic liberty minded wing of the political right so those are the folks who had opposed the new deal in America the spread of Social Democracy in Europe and he and fell a libertarian saw that as an illegitimate infringement on the rights of the minority and the minority that they were most concerned with that he was most concerned with through the years and they still are. Is the minority of wealthy tax payers and corporations who don't share the public's view of what the the common good in the public interest is so Buchanan was quite a rat I mean. He was very much academic but quite a radical one in his view. He thought that every existing Constitution in the world was a failure insofar as the this metric of protecting the wealthiest taxpayers and corporations and so he basically set out with what he called constitutional economics to come up with a legal and constitutional strategy that would entrenched those minority interest and protect them from the reach of the majority in the late. Nineteen sixties an oil executive in. Kansas came across Buchanan's writings and became consumed by them. Billionaire Charles Coke. He's an extremely successful. Ceo He's one of the world's largest private corporations and it is heavily based in the fossil fuel industry and one of the leading promoters of climate science. Denial in the world James Buchanan was one of the hundreds of intellectuals that Charles Co funded in seeking what he called the technology the technology to affect this world transforming impact by nineteen ninety seven. Charles Coke had determined that James Buchanan's ideas worthy ideas. He needed to make the breakthrough that he sought in politics and so he began investing heavily in Buchanan Center at George Mason University. This is a public university just outside Washington. Dc on Charles Coke is now the top donor at the university having given over one hundred million dollars from his own personal foundations as well is brought other donors around and it has resulted in corrupt. Hires of faculty where donors are dictating. Which Faculty are hired Where their private kind of slush funds that that are avoiding public transparency in a public university they now invest in over three hundred campuses around the United States. And how significant centers in many including sadly my own at Duke Charles Coke and his brother. David were both driven by Buchanan's ideas and they set out to influence the American political system by focusing on the Republican Party five years ago my brother Charles provided the funds to start up the Americans for prosperity. We organized huge tea parties. All throughout the stage. We've out twenty nine tea parties. Dozens of tea parties flag the largest tea party in the nation on April. They've gone quite literally hundreds of organizations so there are dozens of national organizations at Cato Institute the Heritage Foundation the Federalist Society They Fund Organizing Enterprises Americans for prosperity. There's also a group called relatives called Libra. They have something called concerned Veterans for America they fund kind of Phony Women's group The Independent Women's Federation they also fund something called the State Policy Network. Which has about one hundred fifty affiliates in states around the US and they also have something called the Atlas Network which is a transnational body. You can actually look it up online to see you know what the groups are in your country but they are funding over four hundred fifty operations in ninety six countries and Sir. And how well is it financed how much? How much money are we talking? Oh we're talking about multi billions Yeah I mean huge huge amounts of money. I mean the the Coke Network put on four hundred million dollars into the two thousand eighteen election's alone Forty million into publicity to get their favorite judicial nominees confirmed on Supreme Court Neal Gorsuch and Brett Cavenaugh Forty million pop. I mean it the the moneys that they have are bottomless. What has been the impact on American democracy especially in regard to the notion of the captured state? Yeah the impact of this project. American democracy has been devastated. Historian I take a long view and there are times when I think we are a failing state. We are the wealthiest and most powerful country in the world yet. We've reached a point of dysfunction that we're becoming a failed state yet the. Us Isn't the only place where the phenomenon of the captured state by corporate interests is now a reality we've stepped in we're going to get that pipeline built and we don't intend to be the in the pipeline business for the long term. There is a very strong business case for this pipeline but we are going to ensure that it gets built so that we can get our resources to markets. Dow Was Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau explaining. Why in May two thousand eighteen? His government bought the Trans Mountain pipeline for four point. Five billion dollars a pipeline that connects the oil sands with BC's coastal ports. The purchased occurred after the pipeline's owner kinder- Morgan backed away from a plan to expand its capacity to some observers. Trudeau's decision was evidence that a deep state exists in Canada. The purchase of the Trans Mountain pipeline was just assigned to me of the RAW. Flexing of the oil industry's muscle. The industry really really wants this pipeline. It wasn't prepared to finance it itself and yet it wanted it so it was able to put enough pressure flex enough muscle poor enough money into campaigns of influence to get the federal government to buy it for them. I'm Kevin Taft former leader of the Liberal Party and author of oils deep state which came out in twenty seventeen. The case study the defining example of oils deep state and Canada is the province of Alberta. Many people believed the most powerful interest groups. Special Interest Group in the land is the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers. This is an organization with virtually endless amounts of money to spend on public relations and political campaigns. They meet Hundreds and hundreds of times a year with federal officials.

"In the latest edition of that's what she said with Sarah Spain. This isn't my first episode for the new year, but it's close enough. And part of the reason that I wanted to have this week's guest. Daniel Levitin is because of some of his great speaking on attitude, and how a neuro plasticity and your your ability to change the way, your brain reacts to things is actually up to you. And this is a relatively new thing. Back in the seventies. People thought that your brain was essentially static as an adult, and they're finding more and more that what used to be considered sort of hippy dippy stuff like positive thoughts lead to positive attitudes is one hundred percent real. And I know you guys who are regular listeners have heard me talk about this a lot. So I wanted to actually have on a neuroscientist a guy who's an expert in the way, the brain works to figure out what we can be doing to actually train ourselves to deal better with stress if we know our triggers, how can we prepare ourselves to not fall prey to those things when they happen and to be. Able to deal with those dresses better. You know, he was the neuroscientist that Peter sago might wait. Wait, don't tell me. Guess talked about an A after reading up on him fascinating, dude, who has an incredible history and music and science, and I think you will after listening to this probably be less proud of your multitasking and more likely to understand the ways in which your self sabotaging and preventing your brain from doing its best work. So hopefully, this is a great way to start your new year with a better understanding of all of this stuff. So here's my interview with Daniel Levitin. That's what she said super excited for my guest this week. Daniel Levitin who was actually recommended to me via my previous guests Peter sale of wait. Wait, don't tell me, which is a great pod, which you should listen to if you haven't yet Daniels and award winning neuroscientist musician, author and record producer. He has written four consecutive number one bestselling books and holds to academe appointments. He's the James McGill, professor emeritus of psychology and behavioral neuroscience at McGill University in. Trio and the founding dean of arts and humanities at the Minerva schools at KGI, and I've already told them before we even started that after learning and reading so much about his history of music and the brain we're going to have him back on again for that. Because that's such a fascination of mine, but this is the New Year's podcast with the intention of helping people deal with their stresses and their attitude and their positivity and the way they function on everyday basis. Maybe in ways that not everyone even understands before we get to that. We've got to figure out how you got here because I'm fascinated by somebody who graduates high school in a short amount of time goes to MIT to study applied mathematics, and then goes to the Berkeley college of music and drops out to join a bunch of bands kind of. I mean, that's fascinating. What kind of I guess childhood or youth? Did you have that all those disparate things were all within you? I guess I guess I was immature. I guess I just couldn't stick things out. I guess right. You were multitasking which. Following multiple pass. And I'm not finishing any of them. That's one possibility. Yeah..

This is from the introduction as nineteen fifty-six drew to a close Colgate Whitehead Darden junior the president of the university of Virginia feared for the future of his beloved state. The previous year the US supreme court had issued its second Brown versus board of education ruling calling for the dismantling of segregation in public schools with quote all deliberate speed in Virginia outrage school Saint officials responded with legislation to force the closure of any school that plan to comply some extremists called for ending public education entirely Darden who earlier in his career had been the governor could barely stand to contemplate the damage such. A rash move would inflict even the name of this plan massive resistance made his gentlemanly Virginia sound like. Mississippi on his desk.

Boy, Darden knew better no less a figure than Milton Friedman at its extolled Buchanan's potential Dardenne reviewed the document. He might have wondered if the newly hired economists had read his mind or without mentioning the crisis at hand Buchanan's proposal put in writing what Darden was thinking Virginia needed to find a better way to deal with the incursion on states rights represented by Brown versus board of education. The most Americans living in the north Brown was a ruling to end segregated schools. Nothing more nothing less and Virginia's response was about race, Dardenne Buchanan too. Well, educated sons of the south who were dedicated to the idea of to its model of political economy Brown to see change on much more at a minimum federal courts could no longer be counted on to defer reflexively, two states rights. Arguments. More concerning was the likelihood that the high court would be more willing to intervene when presented with compelling evidence. That a state action was in violation of the fourteenth amendment's guarantee of equal protection. Under the law states rights factory yielding in preeminence to individual rights was not difficult for either Darden orbit cannon to imagine. How a court might now rule presented with the evidence of the state of Virginia's archaic labor relations. It's measures to suppress voting or its efforts to buttress the power of reactionary rural whites by under representing the moderate voters of the cities, and suburbs. In northern Virginia. That'll meddling could rise to levels. Once unimaginable games. Mcgill? Buchanan was not a member of the Virginia lead, nor is there. Any explicit evidence to suggest for a white southerner of his day. He was uniquely racist or insensitive to the concept of equal treatment. And yet somehow all he saw in the Brown decision was coercion. And not just in the abstract. But the court ruling represented him was personal northern liberals the very people who look down on southern whites like him. He was sure we're now going to tell his people how to run their society and add insult to injury. He and people like him with property or now, no doubt going to be taxed more to pay for all the improvements that were now deemed necessary and proper for the state to make. What about his rights where the federal government get the authority to engineer society to its liking. And then send him the Bill who represented their interests in all this? I could fight this. He concluded. I watch a fight this buying the resources. He proposed Darden for me to create a new center on the campus of the university of Virginia. And I will use this center to create a new school of political economy social philosophy. It would be an academic center. Rigorously so one with a quiet political agenda to defeat the perverted form of liberalism is sought to destroy their way of order of life a social order as he described it to promote a social order as he described it built on individual liberty a term with its own coded. Meaning but one the Darden Shirley understood the center Buchanan promised would train a new lie. A lot of new thinkers in how to argue against those seeking to impose an increasing role of government in economic and social life. You could win this war, and he would do. Ideas, while it's hard for most of us today to imagine how Buchanan or Darden or any other reasonable rational human being so the racially segregated Virginia the nineteen fifties as a society built on the rights of the individual in quotes, no matter how that term was defined. It is not hard to see why the Brown decision created a sense of grave risk among those who did believe that. You can't have fully understood the scale the challenge is undertaking and promised no immediate results, but he made clear that he would devote himself passionately this. 'cause so may argue that Darden fulfilled his part he found the money to establish the center, you never got much in return. You can't as team had no discernible success decrease in the federal government's pressure on the south all the way through the sixties and seventies. Take longer view follow the story forward to the second decade of the twenty first century and a different picture, emerges one. That is both a testament to Buchanan's intellectual powers and at the same time, the utterly chilling story of the ideological or origins. Of the single most powerful and least understood threat to democracy today. Attempt by the billionaire backed radical right to undo democratic governance. Roy becomes clear as the story moves forward deck by decade by decade is that a quest the began as a quiet attempt to prevent the state of Virginia from having to meet national democratic standards for fair treatment and equal protection under the law would some sixty years later become veritable opposite of itself a stead.

"That's what fast forward and all that stuff is for if I can't. If I if I once I come to the conclusion. That everybody here, there's nobody to root for. Now they're kind of out. There's definitely people who've there was even the midget man. People. That's why I hung out. I hung out episode longer because you know, I'm all in on that. Okay. Your thoughts air, not seeing any of this. Interesting. The three of us are living by and large in different worlds. Okay. Go ahead. Yeah. Number one right now is better call Saul, which is a prequel to the affirmation aforementioned breaking bad. This show much like Ozark just done in a much better way. I mean the the craft in the skill that is put into every single shot in both breaking bad, but especially better call Saul as well from thence, Gilligan storytelling, the depth of character. The craft in the making, the show is the best they are masters at this. So from that standpoint alone, it's a, it's a really great show. What better call Saul does, though it tells the story. Bob Odenkirk is plays the lead character. It sells sell tells the story of James McGill, which is the guy who's later known in breaking bad assault Goodman, the corrupt lawyer, and it's really much like Ozark in a lot like breaking bad. It shows the, it shows a perfect picture of natural law of human nature and of what true Justice, cosmic Justice under natural law looks like in that at the end of things, everybody gets what they deserve, and I'm starting to see that formulate in in better call Saul as well as well as a little bit. Have you seen this show at all? I know you watch breaking bad? No, and I was skeptical at the beginning about they were just trying to capitalize and make money, but I've heard nothing but good things as well. Reviews for this to it. It moves kinda slow sometimes, but it is a really good. Did you see breaking bad? Oh, yeah. Okay. Yeah. A couple times through somehow. Bone of the best scenes I've ever seen in television was in breaking bad in that final season when Jesse is the meth slave. Yeah, I I was such profound profound filmmaking you? Yeah, so that as far as what it says about conservatism again, there's no, there's no explicit. Here's what fills in the gap from your. For your depravity. Basically what it implies though, is that do anything to anything but, but but but evil do anything but break bad essentially. Because everybody at the end of at the end of the show gets what they deserve, and I'm starting to see that kind of work. It's and then there's one other thing about kind of can't. Is it possible for people to change nature versus nurture that type of thing that argument is going on and it's it's, it's answered, can you change your nature? And so far it's answered in the negative through season three, and I've got a DVR on YouTube TV and all home and watch last yesterday's episode tonight. But it is. It's a great show really good, so they don't forget you. What's your number one ago? It is unexpectedly the crown about Queen Elizabeth, the it start. The first two seasons were about the the young Queen, Elizabeth, right, bright when she became Queen and then it's, it's plan is now the. Next two seasons. I think it's plans to go six full seasons. The next two seasons. Were they recast everybody to be older and then they're going to do it again, recast everybody. This is where you the clarify, the actress who played Queen Elizabeth and now she's in. We talked about that with Mike wait e the the dragon, the dragon to thing. Yeah. Brilliant, brilliant to become. Queen Elizabeth. I mean you you think she's her and why? I liked it unexpectedly. I mean, this was a show I, I like history enough and my wife I thought would connect with the characters and things like that and it what it does is it has such respect for the importance of tradition, not for tradition sake, but it fleshes out what what this, what the point of this whole thing is not just with the monarchy, but with marriage, the the many rumors that there are about Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth's relationship, and whether he was Philander, but it him trying to find his place in the world as as the man of the house..
