Mike Konczal (Rortybomb, Roosevelt Institute) and Jeremy Kessler (n+1, Yale University)

On Fireside Chats, Mike talks to Jeremy about law and the left. With regard to opponents of Obamacare, Jeremy discusses deficiencies in the conservative conception of freedom, and Mike wonders why Chief Justice Roberts ruled in favor of the law. Should liberals have been hoping for SCOTUS to strike down the individual mandate? And how has the notion of liberty changed since the Lochner era of the Supreme Court? Mike and Jeremy consider dissenting leftists, like civil libertarian Glenn Greenwald and the anti-statist members of Occupy. Finally, Mike turns a critical eye to the right-wing revolution in policing that’s taken place over the last 30 years.
