Continuation of a failed foreign policy: US-Iran Agreement #FeinWisdom

Ostrolenk asks Constitutional Scholar Bruce Fein to comment on the United States’ recent agreement with Iran. Fein discusses the agreement must be understood in the context of historical US-Iran relations, and how misguided U.S. foreign policy in the region has created the power vacuum that precedes the agreement. The United States’ inability to understand the ramifications of its foreign policy actions has led to this agreement, ultimately creating a cure that are worse than the disease.

Declassifying the 28-Pages, #FeinWisdom

Ostrolenk speaks with Constitutional Scholar Bruce Fein on the “28 pages,” a Congressional report from 2002 which points to foreign government support of the 9/11 hijackers. Although many are calling for President Obama to declassify this document, Fein points out that the ability to do so lies with Congress. Congress, despite empty promises to publish the 28 pages, has failed to do so. This lack of action is not only denying American citizens their right to information, but preventing the families of 9/11 victims from pursuing justice.

Declaration of Independence: A Blueprint for Reform #FeinWisdom

Ostrolenk speaks with Constitutional Scholar Bruce Fein on the Declaration of Independence and its relevance today. Fein comments that in the rights-centered universe created by the Declaration, the purpose of the government is to secure the rights of the people, and the power to do so is given through the peoples’ consent. However, as transparency in government is largely absent, citizens today lack adequate information to give consent to govern. A liberty-centered universe no longer exists and America is no longer governed by the consent of the people. In this context, the relevance of the Declaration of Independence today is to act as a blueprint for government reform.

Second Amendement Limitations #FeinWisdom

Ostrolenk speaks with Constitutional Scholar Bruce Fein on the balance between gun control and the Second Amendment right to bear arms. Bruce notes that the Second Amendment, like every right in the Bill of Rights, has limitations to ensure overall protection of society. Most important, he continues, is focusing on the location, mental stability, and training of individuals, rather than the type of weapons available to citizens.

Independence from our Empire #FeinWisdom

Ostrolenk speaks with Constitutional Scholar Bruce Fein, in the context of America’s Independence Day, on the meaning of liberty. Bruce notes that in many ways we as a country have made enormous strides in ensuring equality. However, the core protection of our liberty – the separation of powers – is being destroyed. Bruce concludes that while we have been able to ensure greater equality in access to power, we’ve failed to guarantee that this power safeguards our liberty.
