Thank you for having me before we get into your ah, very interesting distillation of sitcoms over the last 40 years or so and and how white working class or treated in those It comes from sort of all in the family forward. What's your reaction to the reactions, particularly from the left and the critic community to hillbilly elegy? The film Well, it's so funny because I know J D and I loved the book. I always plan on watching it, but then I would have used came out and originally, people are saying months ago this was an Oscar nominee. This might be the Soma Glenn Close, finally or any Adam's family win an Oscar for cause They've both been nominated like, I think 13 times between the two of them were never one. So I was really excited about it and the reviews command. I still think it's a garbage filming. You shouldn't see it going to go see it. It was a good movie. I mean, it wasn't I didn't I agree with you? The book was better and I didn't love I think That the Amy Adams character playing her mother, there wasn't enough of dimension describing really watch. She went into being an addict, but it was a fine movie. There's a lot worse movies, especially for how horrible the reviews were. And it's so funny because earlier this year I saw cuties, which had great reviews, and I thought it was honestly mostly just boring. I thought that it wasn't that interesting and of the salacious part of the girls. Twerking was not necessary. But besides that, it's really Not that great of a movie. It's a little bit boy. It's a very, very dull and boring and French and there was a lot of anti Muslim steam strap the movie that none of the reviewers seem to put pick up on. But it was very obvious from anyone who watched the movie. So I think I think it's clear from the perspective that they did have a bit of an agenda. There's tons of movies that people go see that their audiences love and that your viewers and critics and people in the entertainment industry kind of pick their nose that well right, No question. Her, though, if Roger might be onto something when he talks about that, despising the so called deplorables and perhaps even caricaturing them, So for the purposes of despising them is not only going to be all current. It's going to be mandatory. If you want to be a card carrying member of the world culture. And if you're saying that reflective and some of the TV offerings and how white working class if you will, or perhaps even lower class Are being depicted right? And that's kind of the point of my piece. You know, doing Cove? It, um, I spent like most people from a lot of time watching television and I caught up a lot of older TV shows songs that I grew up on either really, Nick and night or they were in their first run when I was a child, and I did notice a general trajectory of how the light working class is being. Trade on television, You know, not that he not that Hollywood is sympathetic to poor whites and not that they ever have been. But they were far more honest and their description and the news industry was or politicians in Washington ever works because if you start with all the family that was released in 19 just premiered in 1971. I'm starring Carol Connor and Jean Stapleton. This show shows working class white family from Queens, New York, the neighborhood I was from actually, like, I think Archie Bunker's house is just about a half a mile from my house, like it was in my whole life, and the general trajectory is that it didn't talk to be a member of the white working class, Archie's able to afford a house on a single income. Jean Stapleton character, Edith has some respectability in her life and their Children child, Gloria is able to go to college. It does. It's not terrible, three member of the working class during this time, and then there's about from the beginning of all the family till the next show because they remember in the early eighties mid eighties, there really wasn't any television of the working class. Families. It was a lot of shows with the upper middle class, whether that be the Cosby Show, or, Um, uh, the show with Michael J. Fox and Family ties. Yeah. Upper middle class shows are Dallas was up there by the rich In the late eighties. You have three shows, which is the Simpsons. Which is 1989. You ever stand in 1988. And you have, um, married with Children, 1987. And these three show was really came back and show the working class. And if you see the general decline in the standard of living from 1972 when all my family community 1987 when when there were Children, premieres and obviously married with Children is a farce. But there is a general decline. Carroll O'Connor, um, character, Archie Bunker. He has some respect in the family. They never eat dinner without him. Sitting at the table. He's offered a cigar and Frank when he comes home from work. Remember, he's not working as an executive. He's a union member. Um, versus the way that Al Bundy is portrayed as having no respect from his wife and kids. You know, Roseanne, which is far less farcical. Then then then, all then then married with Children is You see the general progression of how life is Jean Stapleton tear to eat it on Lee ever had to work when Archie's unionism strike for than which is portrayed in the feminist character be having to be a working mom isn't isn't the ideal of being a quote a true feminist and the choice of work is being fostered upon the working class is a necessity. That they would starve it for exam didn't have a second income coming in and and 20 years later, when Roseanne comes back, you see the character for Zhan Hu is very progressive, another and her political stances during the first run of the show she very she becomes an outspoken trump supporter, as many of those types of people did in real life, But the characters are in basically the same economic shape..

There's been a lot of comments on it ever since. I remember that story about that bed and breakfast in ST John's Michigan. The one that had the Norwegian flag share it all over social media, and I saw over the Internet actually, yesterday, pretty. Yeah, they they were flying in Norwegian flag because that's their heritage. They were flying in Norwegian flag, but they kept getting complaints and and by the way, just some really vile. Thank you. You're a bunch of racist. Why you're flying the Confederate flag. What a Confederate flag. Here's the part. I find so sad about it. It is. There's no cure for like, Well, there's a cure for ignorance. There's no cure for stupid being truly stupid, but these are some ignorant people. Here's a chance to educate them. No, you see that that's a Norwegian flag. He hears what the Confederate flag looks like. You could atleast provide him with a little bit of education, but they have decided to take the Norwegian flag down. Even though they're playing people in town, encouraging the put it back up to take it down, rather than to deal with the complaints that they're getting because they're just they're just really afraid that some people will misinterpret what the flag is, and therefore they how is that any different than some major corporations in America who were doing the same thing the minute they get challenged? Sure. I guess, Professor Robert George was on Fox in Hee and I think this is a really good example of of Ah, really lethal combination. Cancel culture. Plus ignorance. Yes, it's a combination of a very bad attitude and a great deal of ignorance. You would think that Americans would be able TTO tell what is and isn't a Confederate flag, even if it's a flag that, in some ways resembles a Confederate flag. You don't expect unnecessarily to know what the Norwegian flag looks like. They should be able to tell. It's not a Confederate flag. That's ignorance. But look at how quickly people just turned to outrage on trying to shut these people down because they thought they had broken the rule against wrong. Think or wrong, speak or wrong expression or whatever you wanna call it. Have a good friend is an academic out in California doesn't podcast and the music for one of his podcast was the great Union. Him the battle cry of freedom. Well, there, some ignorant people mistook it for Dixie. Thought that the music was celebrating the south and therefore celebrating slavery and caused a big ruckus tried to get him disciplined by his university until finally they figured out that it wasn't Dixie. It all would have had a perfect right to play Dixie if you wanted to, but was actually a union him the battle cry of freedom, so the combination of malice and ignorance is really toxic. So true. I mean, we've gone from the point where we're told you. You can't display something. To the point where if it resembles something that you're not supposed to display too much, you know you get called out for that. I mean, how far is this going to go?

Nineteen forty five three months before World War Two ended in Europe. Eighteen year old sergeant. Joseph George was stationed in France and was preparing to go out on evening patrol his friend private. James Cottle volunteered to take his place. He pointed out that at age thirty six. He was nearly twice as old as George. He told him you're young. Go home get married. Live a full rich life. Then private coddle went out on patrol a few hours later he was killed by a German sniper. Sergeant Joseph George returned home safely he married and fathered five sons one of them. Princeton Professor Robert George has been identified by The New York Times as this country's influential conservative thinker. Dr George and his brother will always know that their father survived the war because his friend died in his place. I say a fifty is one of the suffering servant sections of the book each Ford told. What our Savior would experience centuries later in Isaiah fifty four the servant? Jesus testifies the Lord.

To hear is those who are taught our Lord would pay a terrible price to speak such truth. I gave my back to those who strike and my cheeks to those who pull out the beard. I hid not my face from disgrace and spitting the prophet foretold. Jesus is treatment before he was executed. Pilot took Jesus and flogged him. Then in Matthew. Twenty seven the Roman soldiers spit on him and took the read and struck him on the head and when they had mocked him they stripped him of his robe and put his own clothes on him and led him away to crucify him. You and I will live forever because our saviour died in our place now we have a binary choice we can allow. Jesus is horrific sacrificed to be an event like Memorial Day that we remember occasionally with gratitude or we can allow the one who died so we could live to lead us into life in all its fullness today in these dark pandemic days we can claim this promise from. Isaiah fifty ten who among you fears the Lord and obeys the Voice of his servant? Let Him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God or we can refuse to follow our savior as our king. We can choose our business over quiet moments to listen for his voice. We can insist on walking in the light of our own self sufficiency. Rather than the revelation of his will but note this warning. Behold all you who kindle a fire who equip yourselves with burning torches walked by the light of your fire and by the torches that you have kindled this. You have for my hand usual lie down in torment tomorrow. We will define some practical ways to hear and follow the living voice of our living saviour for today. Let's decide that we want to like those. We remembered with deep gratitude yesterday. Jesus died that we might live but unlike anyone else in history he rose from his grave and is as real relevant and powerful in our world. Today as when I walked our planet he will speak to us. If we will listen he will lead us. If we will follow he will cleanse us from all sin if we will confess our sins with repentance. He will sanctify us. If we will be sanctified. I believe that Jesus is grieving for those who remember what he did for them on the cross but give little thought to what he can do in them today but he is rejoicing with those who are experiencing his living presence power and peace. Which is true for you today. If you.

"One of the many things revealed by this pandemic is just how many governors and local officials simply don't get religion or religious freedom for the Colson Center. I'm John Stonestreet. This is point. Whoever said eternal vigilance is the price of liberty was certainly correct. Especially in times of crisis for instance it took a lawsuit to convince Illinois Governor Pritzker to allow religious people to leave their homes and exercise their freedom of religion under his original executive order. The governor would permit quote essential businesses and operations to have gatherings of ten or more people but not religious gatherings even stay in your car driving services as pasture. Steve Castle of the beloved church found out when he was issued a cease desist order were forbidden with threats of arrest and Prosecution Castle on the Thomas. More Society responded by filing a lawsuit as Thomas more senior counsel. Peter Breen said keeping Liquor Stores Open but indefinitely shutting down churches and religious ministries violates our Constitution and our most basic liberties if liquor stores are essential so our churches will. The governor quickly issued a replacement executive order explicitly allowing the free exercise of religion as well as permitting gatherings that comply with social distancing while Governor Pritzker is a particularly easy one to pick on here. He certainly not alone. Kansas Governor Laura Kelly issued an order that exempted twenty six types of secular activities from its gathering ban but specifically prohibited churches and other religious service or activities with ten or more people even if they obeyed social distancing requirements will that order only lasted until the alliance. Defending Freedom filed a federal lawsuit. The governor has since issued a new order. That didn't single out churches still as ATF. Senior Counsel Tyson. Lang Hoffer said. It's a shame that it took a federal lawsuit in Italy. Prompt the governor to issue an order she could have easily issued in the first place one. That doesn't unconstitutionally target churches. It's more than a shame actually. It's revealing from governors mansions to city halls across the country from major metropolises. Like Bill Blasios New York City to small cities and even smaller townships in the Bible belt like Chattanooga Tennessee in Greenville Mississippi. State and local officials are demonstrating. Just how badly they understand. America's first freedom is bad enough as another eighty F- official admitted that eighty F- and the Thomas More Society and other religious freedom groups simply can't possibly monitor every situation popping up across the nation last week on twitter southern seminary professor Andrew Walker wondered aloud. Why there'd been such a general mismanagement of religious liberty at the gubernatorial municipal levels? Well I think like other things I could point to during this time. This is a problem. Cova nineteen certainly didn't create so many cultural faultlines foundational weaknesses of our theology and our society are being revealed and exploited during this pandemic specifically. I think Princeton Professor Robert George best articulated. Why we're seeing so many. Local officials fail so miserably on Religious Liberty Right now during episode on the breakpoint podcast too many Americans he told me including lawmakers and even Christians essentially say religion as a hobby kind of like football are going to the ballet or collecting stamps. These things are of course non essential but in our constitutional tradition George continued. Religion is singled out for special care. Our founding fathers who bequeathed to US this great constitutional government understood religion has to do with conscience of course the government's fully entitled to Curtail Religious Freedoms in a national emergency. That's something recognized by constitutional scholars and theologians both contemporary and in the past and our podcast conversation. Dr George clearly articulated. These specific conditions under which religious freedoms can be limited by the State. I the government has to show a compelling interest for limiting freedom of expression such as public safety for example slowing the spread of covered nineteen could be deemed a compelling interest second. The state cannot single out religious activities for restrictions. Do not apply to other areas of life. That's a point. The governor's Pritzker and so many others are clearly struggling to grasp third. If a compelling interest does exist the government can only curtail religious liberty in the least restrictive ways possible any restrictions imposed cannot be more burdensome than necessary so for example as Mayor de Blasio of New York clearly missed and his irrational threats against churches. Any restrictions have to be temporary. Look we've clearly a point where we know now. We have to re educate ourselves and our lawmakers about the privilege place of religious freedom in our form of constitutional government. Religious Freedom is not a second-class ride and religious. Not a lifestyle choice or a hobby but when governor pritzker announces like he did last week even after having his first idea smackdown that gatherings over fifty including churches would have to remain close for more than a year until a vaccine is developed. Good Heavens we've got our work cut out for us. I mean Governor. Pritzker has a law degree from a law school that bears his family name to paraphrase professor degree from the Lion Witch and the wardrobe last me are they teaching them in law schools these days and while we're asking that question that's also asked and what are we teaching our churches these days about religious freedom for breakpoint. I'm John Stonestreet..

"I crossed the line here just stop doing bad words but the pornography industry has benefited from honorable honorable people not knowing what they are putting out there and making available to our children and so I've had enough of that. We need tell our people inform are not gonNa make anybody look at anything. I don't look at myself but you can be assured that the stuff being put out there today and made available to children is not your grandfather's playboy magazine with the peekaboo pictures of naked nipples. Dad's nothing compared to what you have today again. I am not myself seeing it but the Internet conversation included the report which seemed to be verified by the media that last week the fourth most watched video on porn hub. The big porn site was of a young woman. A girl really a teenager. It looks like it looked like she was teenage strapped down not only by her wrists ankles but also by her mouth to the floor or to some sort of a of a platform form or something like that being penetrated by a machine while she was burnt with hot wax. No this is not your Grandfather's play point and no this is not acceptable making this sort of thing of vailable people especially to children especially young boys who go forming their attitudes toward women their understanding toward girls understanding toward the opposite sex having their conception of the dignity of women corrupted in this way. No I know this is not acceptable. And we'RE NOT GONNA fall for any libertarian. Nonsense that pretend the porn industry from being held accountable for what they are doing to people. What appear doing to women what they're doing to children and the detail that I think many also miss is emily? Just how much worse it's gotten but it comes after kids. I tell this to parents all all the time. Your kid might not be looking for pornography now. Pornography's looking for your kid. I've taught the through pop-ups through enticing. You know links you were there through a click bait sorts of things that just kinda devolve lower and lower and lower until you get into the worst. I can't tell you professor George A number of I. Just he's just last year a crying father literally after an event crying father talking about a nine year old daughter found herself in this kind of you know very popular APP. It's even Johnson it's smartphones too. I mean that's the thing it's coming in our hands where there's no accountability whatsoever in any other context would be assault and there's really no reason whatsoever ever that it's not considered assault when it comes to this as well professor joke about one more just really important question You have a platform that God has given given to you as you've stewarded your intellectual and Scholarly gifts again You know having been called America's foremost conservative intellectual. I don't think that's hyperbole. I believe at all and hope. Chuck Colson so loved and valued the career that God has given you. And so you have this access to someone like bill bill bar that the rest of us just don't have and yet surely their stuff that the rest of us can do. What would you say as you're trying to lead discharge On this kind of political governmental level at the top of culture. What can the rest of us do? Well thank you for asking me that that question and reminding me of my wonderful friendship With Chuck Colson. He was just such a great man and such a hero and he did so much for me. It was just such a source of support for me and of course it was such an honor and privilege to work together with truck on so many projects including the Manhattan Declaration and the doing the right thing series look whatever opportunities NBC gifts. I've been given. They're given to me for a reason to serve to help to undo wrongs that are being done at least do my bid at least to try. And that's what I'm GonNa do and I want as many people with me working alongside me hand in hand as possible. People may think well you know who am. I don't have much influence points. I'm just an ordinary working person. I'm just an ordinary mom. At home you are somebody. This is democracy. Your Voice counts. Think about how you vote wight wight letters to your local newspaper. Use Your facebook or twitter accounts to get the message out to stimulate the conversation to Komo decency and honored to call attention to the horrible things that are going on for example in the pornography business and with abortion and other great human rights violations violations that we have in our own time a get together with other people talk to your children talk to other family members. Talk to your friends. Don't be afraid to raise the the issue helped to cause a buzz. Help the concert conversation in the country get people thinking about the issue otherwise might just avert their gaze. And never think about this you. Nobody wants wants to be looked at as a scold or somebody's constantly forcing people to talk about moral issues. But you don't have to talk about a twenty four hours a day. It doesn't have to be your only conversation but there are moments when when it is appropriate to raise serious issues with your friends workmates. Neighbors family members. And certainly if you're doing social media if you've got a facebook account if if you've got twitter account you can certainly get involved politically get involved with the local people in your community.

"I'm Shane Morris. With the Colson Center for Christian Worldview last week Professor Robert Georgia Princeton wrote an impassioned letter to US Attorney General William embar urging him and the Justice Department to take action on the pornography epidemic. Ravaging lives across the country. Professor George Joins Johnstone Street Day on the breakpoint podcast to talk about the letter and the devastating effects of pornography sex trafficking broken marriages abused children addiction. Broken families families and on and on what role should government play in combating the porn industry. And what can ordinary people do in the face of such a widespread epidemic here John Stonestreet and Professor Robert George. Welcome to the breakpoint. PODCAST I wanNA start a discussion here. That's been and happening on twitter. If I just about a week ago a letter was sent to the Attorney General of the United States Bill Bar essentially requesting in clarification around existing obscenity laws. And whether they could be applied to the online pornography scourge that we have in America today now typically a letter like that wouldn't draw a whole lot of headlines but the author of the letter is the one of the reasons that this has drawn so much attention. He's been called America's most influential. Oh conservative Christian thinker. I don't think that's hyperbole. None other than Professor Robert P George I who is the McCormick Professor of jurisprudence and the director of the James James Madison Program in American ideals at Princeton University also a frequently visiting professor at Harvard Law School Two Thousand Fifteen winner of the Wilberforce Award from from the Colson Center longtime friend of Chuck Colson Co author of the Manhattan Declaration with Chuck and Timothy. George and he joins us here on the break point. PODCAST professor. Mr George always an honor to have you on. Oh it's my honor John. It's pleasure to be back on the show. Thanks for inviting. Oh listen absolutely and so this was a A. I think a very bold move and one could say that you know five. Six seven years ago a statement to the Attorney General of the United States asking to do something about online pornography would have gone on deaf ears. You clearly think that. There's something happening either culturally or legally politically. That led you you to write this letter so describe a little bit here kind of where you think. The cultural needle is and you know why you did this. Well thank you John and I'll be happy to do it. I'm glad to have the opportunity to explain some of these issues in my own motivation to the very important breakpoint audience couple of things. I Back in the previous administration the Obama Administration there was no interest In the enforcement of obscenity not laws. They were put on the backburner to the extent that they were enforced at all which was not very much except In some limited ways and the child pornography area area but we have a new administration. We have a new attorney general. We have an attorney general who speaks quite openly about the need for moral reform in our country free someone who recognizes and talks about the way the moral ecology of the country has been degraded and the practical real life impact act on people on children on families. He's concerned about those things. He gave a very Highly covered criticized a great deal by the liberal media of course respect nevertheless highly covered speech at Notre Dame where he talked about the ways in which secular ideology now presents itself as a religion. A kind of Neo Pagan Hagen. Religion that pushes ideas especially when it comes to the sanctity of human life and marriage and sexuality that are antithetical to Christian beliefs in the beliefs of a great many other traditions of faith so we have a we have a new sheriff in town of New Attorney. General with a new attitude sets concerns so I wanted to reach out to him. The the other thing is that the situation has simply gotten much worse when it comes to pornography. When it comes to obscenity it was bad enough ten years ago it was bad enough fifty years ago it's much worse now? Online pornography changes everything and mainly the reason for that is that it creates a bigger market which means more women exploited and it becomes acceptable in ways never before two children especially especially very young children who on their smartphones can easily access the most grotesque most horrifying those corrupting and depraving informed of pornography. So John Something has to be done something simply has to be done. The situation is out of control. Pornography now is not only a public public morality crisis which has been for many years since the rise of the sexual revolution and the And the porn culture. It's not just the public morality crisis. which would be bad enough if it's a public health crisis because of sex addiction because of what happens to young kids mostly boys but even some girls when it comes to the consequences quences health consequences for the pornography and it's a public safety issue because more and more women are being exploited? Women are being trafficked into the pornography trade some of the worst forms of sexual slavery that we have around the world now and in the United States are connected to the sex industry including the porn industry. So these were my motivations. This is why I decided. Now is the time to be in touch with attorney. General Barhoum I know a bit to ask him for a clarification. One of our existing obscenity laws and to plead with him to more systematically and vigorously enforce those laws to protect the potential victims and victims of sex trafficking to protect our young boys and girls to protect families to protect people who suffer the consequences of porn an addiction and sex addiction addiction which devastating for America's devastating for families devastating for communities so one of the things that many of our listeners may or may not no is that you know this is coming kind of in the context of a pretty robust debate on twitter. Back in December. And I think that it's part of a larger uh-huh how do I WANNA say when things Bill Bar said in his speech which I think was so important and powerful is that the unbridled pursuit of personal appetites tides at the expense of the common good are things to be condemned and yet one of the people on the other side of this issues are people who are on the same side of so many other political issues shoes of us and then when talking about here. The conservative Libertarian and there was a huge debate on twitter between people calling for the regulation of pornography. I think it was Catholic. Writer Matt Walsh at the daily wire who kind of sparked this debate and just really got a flurry of condemnation from libertine. Saying listen having the government involved in this is the wrong thing and and I know. Professor George Era Proponent Limited Limited government. None of us want government out of control. Why is the government the right entity to act when it comes to online pornography right now? Well the government has to be involved because we got a very serious social problem mm-hmm we have harmed to the common good. That was bill bars point. It's the common good that is being damaged here. But more fundamentally it's the law that needs to be involved we're not talking about the building and big new government bureaucracy. Concerns for limited. Government are not only the danger is that big and unbridled government presents individual rights. Perhaps even more fundamentally it's a concern about government usurping the authority of Families Churches Voluntary Associations the institutions of civil society. What the Great Eighteenth Century British thinker. Irish actually think are called Edmund. Burke talked about what he's talked about the little platoons of society the do the lion share of work when it comes to providing health education welfare and transmitting to each new generation the values and virtues that are necessary for people to lead successful lives yes and be good citizens. That's why we're concerned about limited government. We know government usurps the role of institutions of civil society beginning with the family. And we're not asking for any user patient Asian we're not asking for some big new bureaucracy or another alphabet soup of letters Standing for Big Federal Agency we're just talking about enforcing forcing laws of the sort. That in previous generations were regularly enforced without For Mental bureaucracies. Just with the ordinary three mechanisms and institutions of the law. And we're asking for it to protect people from real life consequences. It says of addiction of exploitation often of violence corruption depravity. They used to be believed by many people. It was never implausible. Nevertheless a lot of people believe came to believe were sold on the idea that pornography is merely nuttiness harmless harmless nuttiness. Hugh Hefner sold this idea when he launched his very financially successful Playboy magazine and early nineteen fifties sophisticated aided people Hefner taught more people who understand and understood and appreciated the kind of nodding trans aggressiveness of pornography. Well pornography was bad then. What happened was telling was bad? Then it's gotten very much worse now and no longer can anybody who knows anything plausibly wall has ably entertain the idea the pornography is harmless or Tamir nuttiness. It is not harmless. It's devastating for children. It's it's devastating for women who are exploited in the production of pornography. It's devastating for families when fathers and husbands become addicted to pornography increasingly. Finally women to women are still the minority. It's still overwhelmingly men and boys who are the victims of pornography addiction but it can't happen to.

"I'm shane morris with the colson center for christian worldview fake news sex trafficking and metoo corporate corruption violence soaring soaring debts the opioid crisis. It's fair to say that now twenty nineteen america has a moral crisis or to put it another way an ethical crisis well back in two thousand eleven in the wake of the great recession and the financial crisis chuck colson and princeton professor robert george combined to produce a six part video are you serious on ethics called doing the right thing. They enlisted the help of fox news contributor brit hume and gathered a panel of scholars theologians and business and government government leaders on the campus of princeton university to discuss america's crisis of ethics in every sphere of public life in government education and the marketplace today on the breakpoint podcast. We present episode one. How did we get into this mess. This all of the episodes of doing the right thing were filmed in front front of a student audience. Each session ends with the panel taking questions from the students. Let's get started. Here's the series host brit hume. Welcome the all of you who have joined us for this discussion of ethics. In american life. Ethics can be described as simply the way things ought to be but the question is. How do we decide that in our society decided today panel is going to discuss this and consists of dr david miller princeton faith in work initiative and associate research scholar here at princeton michael miller director of programs at the act institute dr robert jordan's professor of jurisprudence here princeton charles colson founder prison fellowship in the colson center for christian worldview and dr glenn sunshine central connecticut state university professor of early modern european history as you will see in the two thousand eight financial crisis questions arose about first ethical behavior by the government second ethical behavior in financial markets third ethical behavior by mortgage lending banks and fourth ethical behavior on on the part of the public. The financial crisis has rocked the world and shaken markets worldwide. It is caused an upheaval in millions of lives what went wrong and why did it go wrong. Aw we're going to ask a couple of experts who can provide some insight into this. The first is a well known television personality ben stein. He's an economist lawyer actor and commentator on american in life. You'll also hear from jim grant who was one of the great experts on wall street. Jim is the editor of grants interest rate observer and now we hear from ben stein followed by by jim grant to recover from the recession and crash the beginning of this century. The guy was just pumping money into the economy like mad insanity. Basically the hope was to create some new kind of bubble to replace the tech bubble and they did replace the tech bubble and the housing bubble government. It is not without responsibility here. In many ways first of all they funded fannie mae and freddie mac so lavishly <hes> the the fact that these government sponsored entities were then allowed to contribute to political candidates is astonishing shocking that was one problem with government second round with the government was there wasn't much supervision. I mean there are laws preventing unethical behavior fiduciary duty. There are laws the laws against <hes> fraud exist exist. Were enforced so that that's a big big issue. The ideal of homeownership this noble proposition was that everybody ought to <unk> have whole house was positively seductive and in administration after administration republican democrat especially democrat <hes> elevated this to <music> <hes> a national goal <hes> the so-called government sponsored enterprises fannie mae and freddie mac grew into grotesque toxic institution. This became a really really big business. Because people on wall street saw that first of all there's hardly any government supervision of it what they always always that they could take large bundles of mortgages. They sold them to fiduciary institutions. Especially pension funds at the same time. They sold them short. They saw them short hammered them like mad by buying credit default swap insurance which is a giant short <hes> instrument and then they basically is the <hes> raked in money and then at the bottom of the cycle. They bought the bonds back and made money on that part of the cycle at every level. They are deceiving the people that are dealing in with an every level. Almost everyone in a position of financial authority embraced it the sides saw no evil our federal reserve saw no evil the ratings agencies as mentioned <hes> stamped their highest imprimature on these long they saw no evil wall street <hes> <hes> which was feasting on these transactions donnelly saw no evil but saw a great deal of virtue which can be quantified billions of dollars that was virtue of it alan greenspan one of his final addresses as head of the head of the fed said <hes>. We're not gonna ever have a big credit. Graddick crisis again because we have these things now credit default swaps which have taken the risk out of lending well that turned out to be exactly wrong. Greta the vault slops turned out to be a way of magnifying magnifying the risk not minimizing risk at the heart of this is an unethical series of acts at the heart of it was incredibly unethical act act of wall street in packaging securities. They knew to be fragile and we're often worthless or large largely worth they shouldn't have saw them in the first place place if they were selling they should not at the same time been selling them short if they were all mortgages for people who really couldn't afford the houses a thousand of them any more credit worthy than than one of them in a sense. There's an ethical issue with the public as well because the public to be sure goaded weighted by the mortgage brokers was taking on debt that they couldn't pay and it is not ethical to take on a death that you can't repay the role of government here is extremely important because <hes> government could have used as moral authority. Whatever little it has left to say look wall street. You've got to stop playing both ends of this game. You've got to start making loans to be able to know can't repay it and it should have said to the general public look state. Take a step back. Watch out for what you're doing. You're you're gonna wind up in terrible trouble. You don't know what is like to have your home foreclosed. You're not gonna like it here in the aftermath of bust in in the dark days two thousand eight and early two thousand nine. You'd hear our public officials say over who let's not have any recriminations. Let's not point fingers of blame without without accountability. We are all treading water in this murky lukewarm milky see of collectivism awesome and nothing good comes of it. Let us have individual responsibility and now we turn to the panel starting with brit hume so the question is raised raised. Why is there this seemingly widespread moral collapse in america professor george british culture. Any culture is constituted to a very very significant extent by the beliefs and understandings of its people. That's what shapes a culture but when we look at our own culture we see a high degree of incoherence on the one hand people believe that there are some things that are just plain wrong murder rape theft but on the other hand the polling data makes very clear that many many americans at some level at least claim to believe in what's called moral relativism the denial that there is any such thing as moral truth or an objective moral truths that all we have is opinion. There are no right and wrong answers to moral questions just opinions or feelings <hes> in fact one very powerful critic of our culture is pope benedict the sixteenth who has expressed grave concern that we live under what he calls a dictatorship of relativism that were afraid or ashamed to speak out in in favor of objective moral truth but on the other hand people get into a high duggan about the kinds of activities that went on wall street unethical activities activities deceptive activities so there's an incoherence there if i can quote pope benedict again he says the events of the last two or three years have demonstrated straight that the ethical dimension must enter into economic activity now is the time to see that ethics is not something external but internal to economic nommik rationality and pragmatism now that sentiment expressed by the pope is one that many business school leaders in business school deans have thought about have expressed themselves but they don't seem to know what to do about it when it comes to educating students who aspire to careers in business chuck colson. You've spent some time in the business the schools. I think you've you've heard this expressed by deans. I have indeed twenty years ago. A friend of mine gave five million dollars to harvard business school to set up a tour on ethics. I called him and said you're wasting your money. Because an institution today committed the philosophical relativism of the kind dr george just described can possibly teach ethics ethics are based on absolute standards hundreds of right and wrong so i wrote an article about it after he told me that he thought was wrong a lot of publicity as a matter of fact a lot of flack from friends of mine at harvard. I ended up getting invited to give a distinguished lecture at the harvard business school entitled why harvard can teach ethics and the room was packed students faculty faculty three hundred and fifty. I prepared for that than any talk of giving in years because i knew i was going to be assaulted by the best and the brightest when i got all through forty five minute talk and open operative questions. That wasn't one good question. The students simply were not aware of questions of moral philosophy. It was a very disappointing experience points for me. Because there was just no engagement found the same thing at yale my own alma mater brown university and it's gotten almost to the point because they're talking now about we oughta have a an ethics both honesty oath when we graduate that's all right but what about the three years that they're teaching them. What constitutes constitutes honesty and let me let you hear from one recent graduate of business school. Donovan campbell just graduated a couple years ago from harvard business school and here's what he said about the training that he got an ethics. I'm a graduate of harvard business school graduate with actually with high distinction so named a baker scholar sows in the top five percent at the class. There were two leadership classes and one of which specifically focused on the responsibility business leaders in the context of business the ethics of business. What made that class difficult. Difficult is that unlike in the marine corps everyone comes in and harvard doesn't tell them all right. Here's the deal here's right and here's wrong. There's a common set of ground rules. The you all just need to subscribe to and if you don't subscribe to that you're just wrong because unfortunately the the school does not subscribe to the idea of ultimate morality of ultimate ultimate good which is good in and of itself outside of any context and which is translatable across cultures times. That's apple everywhere. They do not subscribe to that concept so there might be some who make the argument with some justification that if the context of a culture is bribery and that is what is culturally acceptable and that is the way that local businesses done then. There's a very compelling case that our first i wold. Let's say company to come in and bribe problem is there's no mandate there's no fundamental agreement on the way the world works and so you reduced reduced to discussing practical behavior in certain situations we return to the panel with professor robert george well. I don't think anyone can deny that. We have a problem here now. Our panelists have given a lot of thought to this. Let me let me turn to david miller who's given thought particularly to ethics in business ethics <hes> on on wall street as well as on main street david perspective. Thank you robby to be sure. I think most people don't wake up at the start of the day to going to their office to say today. I'm going to be unethical today. I'm gonna commit the world's biggest fraud..
