In this episode, we track back to last month to discuss the Supreme Court’s decision in Carson v. Makin, which has major significance for parental rights in schooling, with the Court holding that public programs cannot discriminate against a school simply for being a religious school.
After that, we continue our discussion of the French Revolution and why it actually doesn’t make much sense to compare it to the American movement for independence by comparing the French Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen to the American Declaration of Independence.
Finally, we bring you the hottest legal takes from the internet. Topics include: why “the physics” don’t count as a witness in a trial, why overturning Roe v. Wade doesn’t automatically release all military personnel from their contracts, and why it’s not illegal for Supreme Court justices to be Catholic.
