CALENDAR LISTINGS FOR Tuesday, February
Brattleboro Democracy Forum: "The Despotic Branch - The Undemocratic Nature of the Supreme Court" (via Zoom): Watch the presentation and take part in the discussion. Tim Kipp and Nick Biddle say: "The Supreme Court's initial assertion in 1803 of the authority to nullify congressional law caused Thomas Jefferson to characterize the court as the Despotic Branch. Throughout our history, the high court, with a few notable exceptions, has been the bulwark of protecting property rights over human rights, of undermining democracy. The current court is on track to be the most egregiously anti-democratic court in the nation's history.". 6:30 p.m. Tim and Nick detail the high court's despotic powers and how it's reached an all-time low. Jimmy Carter recently concluded that the Supreme Court's powers rendered the US an oligarchy. Zoom. Information: Link: https://tinyurl.com/bdwndf6m.
