James W. Ceaser II Transcript

...
I'm very pleased to have with me, again, my friend Jim Ceaser, distinguished Professor of Political Science and American Politics at the University of Virginia.
...
CEASER: As you mentioned, we did use the word liberalism.
...
CEASER: It's hard to say where they would fit in the campaigns today.
...
CEASER: He would be completely unsellable today. British politics, well, in some way for the Left the same thing.
...
CEASER: Discredited completely.
...
CEASER: And of course, if you had problems and a large part of the problems in society would be due to progressivism, since progressivism is contended as important as liberal capitalism throughout the last century, then you would have to say that the flaws are flaws of progressivism.
...
CEASER: The heart of it - let's take it theoretically before we get to its practical consequences - the heart of it actually comes from a metaphysical change, this idea of progress, which we all accept today, progress.
...
CEASER: Definitely.
...
CEASER: We have tools that the accumulation of knowledge has given us, that didn't exist before, if there is progress.
...
CEASER: I would say.
...
CEASER: You get the message.
...
CEASER: I hadn't thought about that.
...
CEASER: Exactly.
...
CEASER: Developed, and maybe develop is too progressive a word.
...
CEASER: You would have to oppose it in the name of something, some standard, so the standard could be a religious one or it could an understanding of what virtue is, to use an old name.
...
CEASER: The point you make about sexual freedom and everything, but now you have rules from a university that tells you when you can touch.
...
CEASER: Certainly, today, I think this is a central change.
...
CEASER: That one is complicated, but I'll say in this sense, in terms of day-to-day, the progressives are multiculturalist and relativist in that sense, they prefer to do that.
...
CEASER: Except when push comes to shove.
...
CEASER: And doubting what you do the minute you do it.
...
CEASER: Right.
...
CEASER: You look at some of the cities, they've been governed by, let's say the Left, progressives for years. Have they done very well?
...
CEASER: I think that's true, but also it may be the case where conservatism now is less in a mood of conserving.
...
CEASER: I'd say we're closer today in some ways to when Reagan came in, which was reaction against the Great Society, and then you could say Reaganism was at least on a par, including the Third Way that we spoke of, and the new democratic view was an effort to make itself consistent in some ways with Reaganism.
...
CEASER: In this situation, yes.
...
CEASER: It's very difficult because you open up the door to the notion of change, you open up the door to transformation.
...
CEASER: Obama called for a transformation of American society, American life, so he used the language of transformation, and what is he going to say after eight years?
...
CEASER: That would be difficult.
...
CEASER: That's true.
...
CEASER: This would mean whether the end of progressivism - it really doesn't have an end - is where we are now or whether it is socialism. Socialism has changed as a word, too.
...
CEASER: And greater equality of, say, redistribution of social wealth. Even at the expense of growth.
...
CEASER: In that sense.
...
CEASER: You ask an average American, they don't care about income inequality. The young do, only because it's abstract. They care about opportunity, and if their kids are going to have opportunity, they're happy. I don't think most people, you know, begrudge LeBron James making what he's making.
...
CEASER: That's difficult to say.
...
CEASER: I mean, maybe I'm hyper-sensitive to this coming from the university, but that's what political correctness wants to do in the context of the university.
...
CEASER: I would say it's getting stronger on campuses, and that's what political correctness thing is all about.
...
CEASER: The term politically correct is one of the great inventions of all time.
...
CEASER: Well, I think the conservative has to give expression to this in the name of, I guess, freedom.
...
CEASER: I would say that a move as far in the direction of freedom is necessary, and then maybe keep reminding persons that for the preconditions of freedom, don't forget the preconditions of freedom at least in our cultural discourse.
...
CEASER: Well, they can re-appropriate it, maybe, somewhat in the economic realm.
...
CEASER: Yes, I think that's true and I think that's - well, that was, I think that was National Review, that was Buckley.
...
CEASER: People are always looking for the universal theory. Even in science, too.
...
KRISTOL: On that complicated note and the basis for further discussion, Jim, thanks very much for joining me today, and thank you for joining us on CONVERSATIONS.


Oregon: Welfare Utopia - The Atlantic

feedproxy.google.com [cached]

James Ceaser, a University of Virginia professor, outlined the history and potential weaknesses of various nomination processes, including one that largely relies on popular primaries. Starting in the early 1970s, Democrats and Republicans began reforming their primary-election processes, transferring influence over nominations away from party leaders to voters. This kind of system is theoretically more democratic, but it also has weaknesses-some of which have been on display in 2016. When I spoke with a couple of conservative political-science professors about their field last month, one of them remarked, with just a hint of jealousy, "I expect Jim Ceaser to take a victory lap around the country saying I told you so."
