This just in from Steve Hayward, responding to my post, below, about Jesse Choper, the Earl Warren Professor of Public Law at Berkeley:
“Very interesting comments on Jesse Choper. I think you might do a really good episode of Uncommon Knowledge sometime (and stir up some useful mischief) on “the old liberalism vs. the new liberalism.” I found in graduate school that the old New Deal liberals were serious and principled, and resented the new liberalism of PC, identity politics, etc. as much as conservatives. (For one thing, these old serious scholars could see its deleterious effect on scholarship.)”
My, my. I’d love to shoot the show Steve suggests, but the only “old liberal” I know is Jesse Choper himself. Can Corner readers suggest any others? Place “old liberals” in your subject heading.
