State of the State RI

Guests: Patrick Conley, Author & Historian, drpatrickconley.org
Ray Rickman, Stages of Freedom, stagesoffreedom.org
Host: John Carlevale Time: 30 minutes
Conley and Rickman are astute historians, who have devoted their adult lives and professional work to teaching history so that we might learn from it and not forget it. Rickman acknowledges that our progress has moved forward and backwards and forward. Extremist on the political right and left worry Conley as progress requires deliberation by level headed people. Rickman supports free speech but is against hate speech; there are limits to free speech. Conley advises: don’t glorify the Confederate position; study it. We seem to be in a tug of war of political thought and our view of our history.
