the good news: Your national leadership is. not good At all Our presidency has been debased by a figure who has a seemingly bottomless appetite for destruction and division and only a passing familiarity with how the constitution works And our Article I branch of government the Congress (thats me) is utterly supine in the face of the moral vandalism that flows from the White House daily I do not think that the founders could have anticipated that the beauty of their invention might someday founder on the rocks of reality television and that the Congress would be such willing accomplices to this calamity Our most ardent enemies doing their worst (and they are doing their worst) couldnt hurt us more than we are hurting ourselves Now you might reasonably ask where is the good news in that Well simply put: We may have hit bottom (Oh and thats also the bad news In a rare convergence the good news and bad news are the same our leadership is not good but it probably cant get much worse) This is it if you have been wondering what the bottom looks like This is what it looks like when you stress-test all of the institutions that undergird our constitutional democracy at the same time You could say that we are witnesses to history and if it were possible to divorce ourselves from the obvious tragedy of this debacle I suppose that might even be interesting from an academic perspective The way some rare diseases are interesting to medical researchers But this is an experience we could and should have avoided Getting to this state of distress did not occur naturally Rather this was thoroughly man-made This disease of our polity is far too serious to not be recognized for what it is the damage it threatens to do to our vital organs is far too great for us to carry on as if all is well All is not well We have a sickness of the spirit To complete the medical metaphor you might say that we are now in critical condition How did we arrive at a moment of such peril wherein a president of the United States publicly threatens on Fox & Friends historians will note to interfere in the administration of justice and seems to think that the office confers on him the ability to decide who and what gets investigated and who and what does not And just this week the President offering an outlandish rationale ordered an investigation into the investigation of the Russian attack on our electoral process not to defend the country against further attacks mind you but to defend himself Obviously ordering investigations is not a legitimate use of presidential power I pick this egregious example of recent presidential conduct not because it is rare in terms of this presidents body of work but because it so perfectly represents what we have tragically grown accustomed to in the past year and a half Who would have thought that we would ever see encouragement coming from the White House for chants at rallies calling for the jailing of a defeated political opponent When you dont even know that there are limits on presidential power then you might not even care when you are abusing that power How did this happen to us And what might we learn from it How did we get swept up in this global resurgence of the authoritarian impulse which now has democracies teetering on the brink strongmen placing themselves above the law and in our own country a leader who reveres some of the most loathsome enemies of democracy in our time Have we really grown tired of democracy Are we watching its passing cheered on by the America First crowd even as we cast aside global institutions that have fostered freedom prosperity and peace for more than a half-century For just a moment let us marvel at the miracle that is the rule of law We have seldom been moved to pause for such an appreciation as we have been too busy taking it for granted and assuming its inviolability like gravity But unlike Newtons Laws the rule of law was neither innate nor inevitable What goes up must come down is a piece of cake compared to curbing the impulses of man and asking free people to abide rules and norms that form a country and foster civilization It took centuries of war and sacrifice and social upheaval and more war and great civil rights struggles to establish the foundational notion that no one is either above the law or unworthy of the protections afforded by a robust legal system a system that took us from feudal servility to a constitutional model that is the envy of the world And will continue to be with your help We trace the beginnings of this radical egalitarianism of the awesome and leveling effect of the law – to the Glorious Revolution of 1688 which saw the death of the divine right of kings as even the monarch from that point forward would be subject to the law and the parliament even threw in a bill of rights for good measure But we are now testing the durability of this idea that William III first had the good sense to agree to an idea which was then forged and tempered over the ensuing centuries And we are seeing its vulnerabilities In other parts of the world where democracys roots are not so deep we are seeing it being torn down with sickening ease and shocking speed And worse we are seeing the rise of simulated democracies Potemkin democracies democracies in appearance and affect only Rule of thumb: If the only acceptable outcome in a matter of law or justice is a result that is satisfactory to the leader then you might live in a democracy that is in trouble If the leader attacks the legitimacy of any institution that does not pay him obeisance say the independent judiciary or the free press then you might live in a democracy that is in trouble Further to that point: when a figure in power reflexively calls any press that doesnt suit him "fake news" it is that person who should be the figure of suspicion not the press It will be the work of your generation to make sure that this degradation of democracy does not continue to see to it that our current flirtation with lawlessness and authoritarianism does not become a heritable trait to be passed down from this presidency The rule of law is an elemental value a value that preceded and gave rise to our Constitution It is not an ideology subject to the pendulum swings of politics or something to be given a thumbs-up or thumbs-down in a call-in to your favorite morning show It is the basis of our system of self-governance America without the rule of law is no longer America I am a conservative Republican a throwback from the days when those words actually meant something before the collapse of our politics into the rank tribalism we currently endure My sounding this alarm against a government that was elected under the Republican banner and that calls itself conservative makes me no less Republican or conservative And opposing this president and much of what he stands for is not an act of apostasy it is rather an act of fidelity Because we forget this fact far too often and it bears repeating a thousand times especially in times such as these: Values transcend politics As a conservative Republican I dare say that my idea of government may differ with the beliefs of many of you here today I will be thoroughly presumptuous and assume that in terms of policy prescriptions we disagree on much (Call me crazy) But I have long believed that the only lasting solutions to the problems before us must involve both sides Lawmaking should never be an exercise in revenge because vengeful people are myopic self-interested and not fit to lead I believe that our government should include people who believe as I do just as I believe it must include people who believe as my friend Tim Kaine does or as my friend Cory Booker does to name but two The greatness of our system is that it is designed to be difficult in order to force compromise And when you honor the system and seek to govern in good faith the system works Which brings us back to our current peril It is a testament to our times and to the inflection point that we face that I am here today For setting aside the usual requirements of politics and the usual ways that politics keeps score the things that normally divide us seem trivial compared to the trials that have now been visited upon our democracy In the face of these challenges we agree on something far more important than a legislative program even more important than our thoughts on the proper role of government in the economy and in the lives of individuals: We agree on the need to safeguard the health and survival of constitutional democracy in America and the preservation of the American idea itself at a time when the values underpinning our constitutional system and that extraordinary idea are under threat from the top The values of the Enlightenment that led to the creation of this idea of America this unique experiment in world history are light years removed from the base cruelly transactional brand of politics that in this moment some people mistakenly think is what it means to make America great To be clear we did not become great and will never be great by indulging and encouraging our very worst impulses It doesnt matter how many red caps you sell The historian Jon Meacham in his splendid new book The Soul of America reassures that history shows us that "we are frequently vulnerable to fear bitterness and strife" The good news he says "is that we have come through such darkness before" Perhaps But not with both nuclear weapons and Twitter And certainly not with such an anomalous presidency as this one But I take your point Mr Meacham and am heartened by it We will get through this of course But at the moment we are in it and we must face it squarely Because too much is at stake for us to turn away to leave it to others to defend the things we hold most dear A culminating event such as the election of our current president scrambles normal binary notions of politics and I am as disoriented as many of you are at this dealignment We find that many of the days biggest issues simply dont break down neatly to familiar ideas of left v right but rather more along these lines: Do you believe in democracy or not Are you faithful to your country or to your party Are you loyal to the law and the Constitution or to a man Do you reflexively ascribe the worst motives to your opponents but somehow deny excuse or endorse every repulsive thing your compatriot says does or tweets These questions have sent some of us wandering into the political wilderness And it is in that wilderness where your wonderful letter of invitation reached me Well the wilderness suits me fine In fact I so love the way Washington has become that in recent years during congressional recesses I have taken to stranding myself on deserted islands in the middle of the ocean to detoxify all these feelings of love out of my system I am not kidding I once spent a week alone voluntarily marooned on a tiny island called Jabonwod a remote spit of sand and coconut trees in the central Pacific about 7000 miles from Washington As penance and determined to test my survival skills I brought no food or water relying solely on what I could catch or collect That it turned out was the easier part More difficult was dealing with the stultifying loneliness that set in on the first night and never left me By day three for companionship I began to mark the hermit crabs that wandered through my camp with a number just to see if they would reoccur By the end of the week I had 126 numbered friends I still miss number 72 who rarely left my side after developing an addiction to coconut scraps I was less fond of number 12 who pinched my big toe Now I would not recommend such drastic measures to escape your situation but I hope that should you be presented with the hard choice you too will eschew comfort and set out into the wilderness rather than compromise your conscience From my cautionary tale to you today I urge you to challenge all of your assumptions regularly Recognize the good in your opponents Apologize every now and then Admit to mistakes Forgive and ask for forgiveness Listen more Speak up more for politics sometimes keeps us silent when we should speak And if you find yourself in a herd crane your neck look back there and check out your brand ask yourself if it really suits you From personal experience I can say that its never too late to leave the herd When you peel off from the herd your equilibrium returns Food tastes better You sleep very well Your mind is your own again You cease being captive to some bad impulses and even worse ideas It can strain relationships to be sure and leave you eating alone in the senate dining room every now and then But thats okay To revise and extend a remark the president himself may recognize: You might say that I like people whose minds werent captured That one was for you Senator McCain Were all pulling for you Politically speaking I have not changed my beliefs much at all But my goodness how I have changed How can we live through these abnormal times and not be changed Our country needs us now Our country needs you We need each other and it is a scoundrel who would prosper politically by turning us against each other From our time let us send a message into the future that we did not fail democracy but that we renewed it That a patchwork of populist resentments and authoritarian whims that for a while succeeded in its cynical mission of discord had the ultimate effect of shaking us from our complacency reminding us of who we are and of our responsibilities to each other Of reawakening us to our obligations as citizens Let us be able to say in the future that we faced these forces that would threaten the institutions of our liberty and tear us apart and that we said: NO I leave you today with more good news and bad news This time I will start with the bad news which is: All of this is yours to fix All of it And that of course is also the good news: All of this is yours to fix and our country could not be more fortunate than to have people of your high character strong principle and awesome talent soon taking the helm I grew up as a kid on the F-Bar Ranch in rural Arizona and if we needed to gauge the condition of the range or to measure the damage after a flood we would find the highest hill or butte and ride our horses to the top From such a vista we could dispatch cowboys to gather cattle machinery to shore up roads or workers to repair fences to restore some semblance of order There are no tall buttes in Washington But it is nonetheless our obligation to assess the condition of our politics then to mitigate and repair the damage It is the story of America though that we will be better for the hard lessons of this experience We are much better and more decent than Washington shows us to be We are a good people And we are a deeply resourceful and resilient nation and our greatness is based on no one man no one man who "alone can fix it" but rather on enduring ideas of self-governance and the rule of law that have been a model for the world for centuries Ideas that can be mocked but not marred No there are no high buttes in Washington but still we must gain the high ground and survey the damage And the thing about gaining the high ground is from up there you can see beyond the damage too You can see everything Everything that is good and decent That is the job before us to get through this and beyond it And youre just the ones to take us there Thank you And once again congratulations to the Harvard Law Class of 2018 Write to Katie Reilly at [email protected]” Our farms are not for cows refused” Beth Lipton Trader
