          The Perils of CEO Worship - What Happens When the Leader Becomes Demented?      Cache   Translate Page      
Introduction: the Cult of the CEO

Although the US and most developed countries are nominally democratic, many of us seem to be again yearning for a man on a white horse, and in the current era, the horse ridden is corporate.
On Health Care Renewal, we having been talking about this pheonomenon for a long time. We have written about it in terms of the messianic (or visionary, or charistmatic) CEO, CEO disease, and the imperial CEO.



These concerns are diffusing into the broader media.  For example, from the introduction to a revent Vox article entitled "The Problem with CEO Worship"

Society has always had heroes, be those of war or art or politics. But entrepreneurs are particularly suited for our current moment, in which success in business is our primary marker of achievement. Business acumen doesn’t just get you money anymore; it can make you the most powerful man in the world.

The signs of CEO worship are everywhere: unprecedented venture capital funding for founders, media overemphasis on company leaders, and to use the most extreme and obvious example, the election of Donald Trump.

That article noted that CEO worship may overestimate the importance of leaders; create "secular fundamentalists" out of individuals; perpetuate destructive neoliberal ideologies; encourage CEOs to make worse decisions; and be bad for business

Those are not the only consequences.  CEO worship makes it possible for a progressively impaired leader to go unconstrained. Unfortunately, we may be seeing the ultimate example of this in the US.

Incoherent Verbal Utterances

Even before he was elected, we noted that Donald Trump sometimes was completely incoherent when describing his health policy ideas.  In early 2016 we raised questions about Donald Trump's cognition.  At that time, a conservative columnist labelled as "word salad" Trump's attempts to sketch a position on health care, specifically the "mandate" provision of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  We found other examples of his utterances on health care policy that could be characterized as gibberish.  This one was short, if not sweet

I want to keep pre-existing conditions. I think we need it. I think it’s a modern age. And I think we have to have it.

How could anyone understand this while listening in real time? A close reading suggests that maybe this was meant to suggest that some people ought to have  insurance coverage for pre-existing conditions. However, Trump seemed to befuddled by that concept.  Furthermore,  note that pre-existing conditions are not desireable, so that one would not want to "keep" them, nor can one choose not to.  To what the word "it" in the second sentence and again in the fourth refers is unclear.  The third sentence seems to be a complete non sequitur. 


We found additional examples of incoherent verbal responses about health care in 2017, and early 2018.  In the last six months, things have only gotten worse.  Examples of verbal incoherence have multiplied, although most were not related to health care. 

In July, 2018, MediaIte reported Trump's incoherent comments at a political rally,

I have broken more Elton John records, he seems to have a lot of records. And I, by the way, I don’t have a musical instrument. I don’t have a guitar or an organ. No organ. Elton has an organ. And lots of other people helping. No we’ve broken a lot of records. We’ve broken virtually every record. Because you know, look I only need this space. They need much more room. For basketball, for hockey and all of the sports, they need a lot of room. We don’t need it. We have people in that space. So we break all of these records. Really we do it without like, the musical instruments. This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.

Perhaps this was meant to suggest that the president drew a larger crowd to an arena than did Elton John.  However, note the non-sequiturs: from "Elton has an organ" to "lots of other people helping" to "we've broken a lot of records," "They need much more room, for basketball, for hockey..." Who are the people helping whom are they helping, and to do what? What records were broken by whom, and how is this relevant to Elton John, etc.  To whom does they refer, and why do they need a lot of room? Etc, Etc.  Again, in real time this would have made no sense at all

In September, 2018, CNBC reported that speaking at a meeting about preparations for Hurricane Florence, Trump said

This is going to be a very large one ... It's tremendously big and tremendously wet. Tremendous amounts of water

Maybe he meant to say this will be a very large hurricane, bringing a tremendous amount of rain.  However, he seemed to be unable to convey the concept of rain.

In September, 2017, the Hill had reported that Trump had defended difficulties in providing relief for Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria thus,

This is an island, surrounded by water. Big water. Ocean water

Again, to be charitable, he seemed to handle the concept of an island in a vast ocean as would a three-year old.

Media articles also suggested that normal people cannot follow or understand what Trump says in real time.  For example,  on November 8, 2018, a Bloomberg op-ed said this about a recent Trump news conference,

In fact, the president was difficult to follow because he simply doesn’t make any sense half the time.

More specifically,

Trump was asked one specific question about health care, and good luck to anyone who tries to figure out what his answer meant. He pretty clearly has just as little idea what he’s talking about on most major policy issues as he did when he first started running for president. On Jamal Khashoggi, waivers on Iranian sanctions, North Korea and Russia, he either ducked the questions with non sequiturs or just babbled.

On November 11, 2018, an article in Slate noted that Trump confused Baltic states with Balkan states in a way that could have foreign policy repercussions,

When President Donald Trump met with Dalia Grybauskaitė of Lithuania, Kersti Kaljulaid of Estonia and Raimonds Vējonis of Latvia earlier this year, he started with a criticism. At the White House in April, Trump opened by chastising the Baltic leaders for starting the war in the 1990s that ended with the breakup of the former Yugoslavia. The Baltic leaders were apparently very confused and it took them 'a moment' to realize that the commander in chief was confusing Baltic states with the Balkans

this case is particularly notable considering Melania Trump is originally from the Balkans. The first lady was born in Slovenia, which gained independence in 1991 at the start of the Balkan wars. As Le Monde wrote, Trump remained 'apparently uneducated in the matter by his wife, Melania, originally from the former Yugoslavia.'

This suggests at best that at times Trump may be unable to distinguish words that sound vaguely alike but have quite different meanings. 

A November 28, 2018, Vox summary article about Trump's recent interview with the Washington Post provided this quote from Trump about economics,

And I’m not blaming anybody, but I’m just telling you I think that the Fed is way off-base with what they’re doing, number one. Number two, a positive note, we’re doing very well on trade, we’re doing very well — our companies are very strong. Don’t forget we’re still up from when I came in 38 percent or something. You know, it’s a tremendous — it’s not like we’re up — and we’re much stronger. And we’re much more liquid. And the banks are now much more liquid during my tenure. And I’m not doing – I’m not playing by the same rules as Obama. Obama had zero interest to worry about; we’re paying interest, a lot of interest. He wasn’t paying down — we’re talking about $50 billion lots of different times, paying down and knocking out liquidity. Well, Obama didn’t do that. And just so you understand, I’m playing a normalization economy whereas he’s playing a free economy. It’s easy to make money when you’re paying no interest. It’s easy to make money when you’re not doing any pay-downs, so you can’t — and despite that, the numbers we have are phenomenal numbers.

The author of the article stated,

I have basically no idea what Trump is talking about here, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t either.

On repeated close reading, I still do not have any idea what Trump meant.  I would add the following questions:  38 percent of what? Who is much more liquid, and how is liquid defined?  Who is paying a lot of interest? What does "paying down and knocking out liquidity" mean? What is a "normalization economy?"  Note that this was coming from someone who claims to be a brilliant business manager.

Furthermore, consider what Trumps aid about the climate,

And when you’re talking about an atmosphere, oceans are very small. And it blows over and it sails over. I mean, we take thousands of tons of garbage off our beaches all the time that comes over from Asia. It just flows right down the Pacific, it flows, and we say where does this come from. And it takes many people to start off with.

Oceans are "small?" What "blows over and sails over?" Over what? What "flows?" What "takes many people?"

In 2017, StatNews published an article describing how 

STAT reviewed decades of Trump’s on-air interviews and compared them to Q&A sessions since his inauguration. 

To summarize the conclusions.

The differences are striking and unmistakable.

Research has shown that changes in speaking style can result from cognitive decline. STAT therefore asked experts in neurolinguistics and cognitive assessment, as well as psychologists and psychiatrists, to compare Trump’s speech from decades ago to that in 2017; they all agreed there had been a deterioration, and some said it could reflect changes in the health of Trump’s brain.

In 2018, Trump's verbal communications at times are even more garbled.  Parts of the passages above suggest the word salad produced by somebody with fluent aphasia versus the nonsensical responses produced by patients suffering from acute delusional states. That Trump is capable of producing this sort of word salad at times, without realizing he is making no sense, suggests the intermittent symptoms seen early in progressive dementia.  


Lack of Insight About Cognition

Furthermore, Trump appears to lack insight about his difficulties commicating.  

In July, 2018, after the NATO conference,  Politico reported, that Trump seemed to have no insight about why much of what he says appears unbelievable to others.  The article noted
leaders who spent the first 18 months of Trump’s presidency thinking there might be a method to his chaos creation — and struggling to discern what it might be — now seem to have concluded that it’s just chaos, and that Trump himself may not understand what he’s doing.

More specifically, European officials commented on what Trump was saying:

A senior NATO official said leaders had concluded that they simply could not rely on anything Trump said.

'You know the way he speaks, you cannot take him literally,' the official said.

Another EU official echoed the point. 'He speaks a language that doesn’t match with diplomacy,' the second official said. 'We were used to the Brits, who speak a more frank diplomatic language, but this is another thing.'

These officials again seemed to be stating that Trump's verbiage can be completely incoherent, albeit they were doing so diplomatically.  After the conference, however, when confronted with a question about the inconsistency of his remarks,

When a Croatian journalist confronted Trump about his inconsistencies, the president flatly denied there were any, and he repeated a defense of his own sanity that he had made when previously questioned about his fitness for the presidency.

'We understand your message, but some people ask themselves, will you be tweeting differently once you board the Air Force One?' the reporter said.

Trump, speaking at his news conference before leaving the summit, replied: 'No, that's other people that do that. I don’t. I’m very consistent. I’m a very stable genius.'

Not to belabor the point, but the examples noted above suggest neither consistency nor stability.  And true geniuses almost never boast about their intellect.

In September, 2018, The Hill reported an interview with Trump in which he said his personal health and management style were reasons that Republicans might do better than expected in the 2018 elections,

'You know, I took that test when I got my last physical, and the doctor said that’s one of the highest scores we’ve ever seen,' Trump said. 'I did that not because I wanted but I did it, I was always good at testing.'

He continued: 'But if there’s anything great about me it’s stability, and I’m a good manager. Always been a good manager, but you know, I have a vision,'

Note that above Trump was presumably referring to the screening test for dementia he took during his official physical examination.  High scores on the test are common, and do not signify great intelligence, just the probable absence of dementia.

In addition, this interpretation assumes that the test was administered in an unbiased way.  However,  there are reasons to question whether Trump's physical was unbiased.  In retrospect, we now know that soon after taking the test, Trump nominated the physician who administered it to be Secretary of Veterans Affairs.  Later the physician withdrew his name after allegations of his questionable personal behavior appeared (look here).  

At least Trump's boast about having "a vision" does correspond to the language often used by public relations spokespeople to justify their CEOs' lack of accountability and high compensation (look here)


Similarly, in the Vox summary of the November, 2018, Washington Post interview (see above for link), Trump stated
a lot of people like myself - we have very high levels of intelligence


Finally, a November 18, 2018 article in MediaIte described this interchange between Trump and interviewer Chris Wallace on Fox News, starting with his response to a question about how he makes decisions

'I don’t think about them,' Trump replied. 'I don’t think about, you know, how I make them....'

However, he responded to a question about Federal Reserve policy

They're making a mistake because I have a gut, and my gut tells me more sometimes than anybody else's brain can ever tell me

This suggests that Trump has lost insight into his own thinking. 

External Observers Suggested Trump Is Cogitively Impaired

In August, Vanity Fair reported:

More than ever, Trump is acting by feeling and instinct.  'Trump is nuts,' said one former West Wing official. 'This time really feels different.' Deputy Chief of Staff Bill Shine has privately expressed concern, a source said, telling a friend that Trump’s emotional state is 'very tender.' Even Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are unsettled that Trump is so gleefully acting on his most self-destructive impulses as his legal peril grows.

In September, 2018, Newsweek reported two instances in which apparent Trump insiders sought psychiatric or medical help for Trump's perceived cognitive problems

[Dr] Lee told Salon that two Trump administration officials approached her after the book was published to express their concern about the president’s mental health, saying he was 'scaring' them because he was 'unraveling.'

In comments to Newsweek over email, Lee said 'it appeared that the officials (if they were officials at all) were at least frequently in [Trump’s] presence.

She continued, 'They were definitely calling from within the White House, which I confirmed by calling back their number. However, I did not ask about their rank. There was no reason for me to doubt they were high-ranking enough to have regular access to the president.'

Lee also said that a 'person [who] was a friend of his entire family, since his childhood” had also been in touch with her at the same time in October 2017, as people in the White House were “stating concern about the president (this was an observation from afar).'

Also in September, 2018, a Politico review of the new book by Robert Woodward based on numerous White House interviews suggested that Trump's inner circle called him a "dope," "idiot," or "moron."

Summary

Donald Trump is the chief executive officer of arguably the most powerful country in the world.  Starting during his campaign for the US presidency, we noted that his utterances about health care were at times so incoherent as to suggest cognitive dysfunction.  In the two years since then, especially in the last six months, he has increasingly been noted to be verbally incoherent or confused, has seemed to lack insight about these episodes, and has been observed by close allies and associates to be cognitively impaired.

However, there have ben few, at best, public attempts to link these suggestions of cognitive impairment together, nor to discuss their implications.  The most recent of those that I have found was in January, 2018 (look here and here).  Yet the problems appear to have been getting worse since then.  

While patients with worsening cognitve impairment deserve accurate diagnosis, compassionate care, and access to what few effective, safe treatments may be available for their condition, they obviously should not be in a position to make consequential decisions.  They certainly should not be in charge of large organizations, particularly powerful countries with nuclear weapons.

Yet President Trump's apparent cognitive decline remains anechoic.

For this we may blame CEO worship, which we have too often seen in health care. We have seen many health care leaders praised for their brilliance and paid royally despite leadership resulting in financial distress, threats to the organizations' health care missions, poor patient care, unethical behavior, or even crime. Yet health care CEOs, like other corporate CEOs, and like politicians are just people, sometimes smart, but almost never brilliant.  Promoting them as messianic to bewitch key constituencies, justify the remuneration of other top managers, and the hiring of more public relations flacks is likely to lead to the sort of organizational disasters and system-wide dysfunction we discuss on Health Care Renewal.  The rise of the falsely messianic leader may allow the entry of the most dangerous false messiahs, the psychopathic ones.  (We discussed the likelihood that some health care leaders are actually psychopaths here.)

We must get quickly past our worship of CEOs.  We may not long survive in a world where leaders of nuclear armed nations have no cognitive clothes.

What if they lived?

There are many striking things about Leo Herrera’s The Fathers Project, a lyrical sci-fi web series that imagines what queer life might look like today had AIDS never happened. But the simplicity and urgency of this, Herrera’s motivating question, may be its most compelling element. In 1987, Fran Lebowitz infamously wrote in an essay’s opening paragraph that “if you removed all of the homosexuals and homosexual influence from what is generally regarded as American culture you would be pretty much left with Let’s Make a Deal.” What is less-remembered is that the quip was made in the context of the death of half a generation of gay men and queers, many of them visionaries. What would have happened if they hadn’t been wiped out? What would they have accomplished, and what would the survivors have done with the energy they instead spent in fear, activism, and grief?

The Fathers Project, the second episode of which was just released for World AIDS Day (Dec. 1), reckons that we’d be living in queer utopia. This vision is enormously appealing. In our daily lives, we face a spate of nasty anti-trans ‘feminism,’ epidemic levels of HIV and AIDS infections in black and working-class gay men and trans women in the U.S., and a rising worldwide tide of fascist politics. It is comforting to imagine utopia in the face of an accelerating disaster. But is it helpful?

The first episode of Fathers, released in June to coincide with San Francisco and New York’s Pride parades and the anniversary of the Stonewall rebellion, is called “Raising the Dead.” Herrera plunges us immediately into an arresting collage of queer political witchcraft. We cut back-and-forth between a leatherman in full attire sitting on gnarled tree roots and some Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence in black-and-blue iridescent habits and navel-deep strings of pearls, skirts swishing across a memorial to those dead from AIDS. Overlaid voices, voices of survivors of the epidemic of various races and genders and classes, imagine what might have been if AIDS never happened. The Sisters raise candles and sparklers, initiating a ritual. They smile. The man smiles. A quick-cut series of radical AIDS protests appears and vanishes as quickly as it comes. And with an accelerating series of faces one sickeningly realizes are all people who died, we enter into a fantasy world without AIDS and before it, a world where they are all still alive.

With the new timeline established, some static brings in a narrator telling us in a clipped, almost robotic English accent of the American queer “colonies,” a growing social and political force strategically located to influence American elections. This “secret country,” depicted in Technicolor tones, is governed by anarcho-syndicalist communes of activists, has community-organized free health care, and is economically self-sufficient and ecologically sustainable. It is about to nominate Vito Russo, in reality known as a legendary AIDS activist, to be president of the United States. These colonies, built with the energy and creativity not needed to fight AIDS, are illustrated with vivid footage taken in actual queer spaces in the United States: Provincetown, Massachusetts; San Francisco; the Radical Faerie sanctuary at Short Mountain, Tennessee; the Mardi Gras houses in New Orleans.

The second episode focuses on nightlife in the queer colonies. Opening with interviews with promoters and DJs from the infamous Saint nightclub of New York nightlife legend, Herrera introduces us to a world in which, unfettered by AIDS, gay sexual mores infected heterosexual life. (Watch out! We recruit.) In a ’90s America without AIDS, straight housewives watched ads for Rush poppers, a common gay sex aid, on afternoon television. Through gay ingenuity, these poppers became the conveyance method for revolutionary prophylactic therapy against all bacterial and viral sexually transmitted infections. When a greedy pharmaceutical company attempted to price gouge—mirroring Gilead’s handling of the HIV prevention strategy PrEP/Truvada today—promoters distributed the miracle inhalants through the ventilation systems of a traveling circuit party (just as Steve Rubell once allegedly distributed poppers through the ventilation systems of Studio 54). This is a glorious world, and one that seems totally impossible. But nothing seen in the film was created especially for the shoots, with the exception of the “Vito 2020” posters. While, sadly, no ad has yet requested that I ask my doctor about prophylactic poppers, all the nightlife spaces and queer enclaves depicted actually do exist. The implied challenge is to feed them, to make them more inclusive and capacious, and to grow them.

There are many questions raised by Herrera’s vision, and not all of them are comfortable. The project fits into a strain of queer cultural nationalism that has often had exclusionary and racialized qualities. Herrera opens the first episode with a quote advocating queer self-governance from Carl Wittman, whose 1969 “Gay Manifesto“ was widely circulated in the radical socialist and revolutionary gay liberation circles that followed the Stonewall rebellion. The episode ends with a note that there was once an actual plan to establish a real “Stonewall colony” in Alpine Valley, California. But many gay liberationists opposed this plan, on the grounds that recreating a white, gay, middle-class ghetto in the woods was no way out of the interlocked and economically structured oppressions facing most of the world’s population. The Alpine Valley project’s organizers, echoing a history of haunted and problematic links between queer and indigenous politics, adopted the attitude that the local Native people, the Washoe, were “a primitive tribe” whose friendliness could not be presumed and who needed to be “overcome” in order for the project to succeed. The use of the word colony itself, with its associated images of pioneers and settlers, is troubling. (The historian Emily K. Hobson recently published a book on these and other divisions and alignments in 1970s gay and lesbian politics.) These associations are worth pointing out even as Herrera’s own images are relentlessly inclusive of race, gender, and other forms of difference.

But as the gay novelist Garth Greenwell recently said in an interview, “problematic” is supposed to be “a verdict, even a condemnation; to me, it’s almost a criterion of interest.” When I ponder Herrera’s work, I find myself torn: On the one hand, these images are undeniably powerful and gorgeous and desire-inducing; on the other, I worry about the idea that free love alone, or queerness alone, is sufficient to create radical politics. Surely it would take more than just the removal of anti-queer oppression alone for our lives to flourish. Would the wealthy gays who slipped from semicloseted lives into discos and nightclubs like The Saint have made common cause with poor and working-class people for the brief time they did without the threat of impending death? Indeed, some have argued that it was the AIDS crisis that forced a coherent, politically powerful gay rights movement out of ’70s fractiousness. Do we really think, in the absence of plague, queers would have automatically been this effective, this noble?

One wonders: New York A-gays Bill White and Bryan Eure, who, according to their recent infamous New York Times profile, hired Aretha Franklin to sing at their wedding, have turned to full-throated Trump support; Eure told a critic of his on Instagram he would “gas you and turn you straight.” On the other hand, it is also often argued that AIDS, by killing off a higher percentage of the sexually radical, working-class, and socially marginalized, enabled A-gays like White and Eure to take over the movement and turn it to their own ends, marshaling their economic power to win fights for relationship recognition, tax-free inheritance, and integration into existing social forms.

While these questions are raised by Herrera’s work, he has concerned himself less with the twists of historiographic debate and more with images and gestures that inspire deep feeling in queer people. Every gay I know who’s seen The Fathers Project has been profoundly affected by it. It’s an expanded idea of what a queer archive is: a display of gestures, of feelings, of resistance, embedded in cultural practices with long histories. “I didn’t research in the archives,” Herrera said in an interview, “I just went to New Orleans and walked around and looked at stuff.” He’s being modest—he has integrated a good deal of archival footage into the project and works regularly with the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco—but the point remains. Herrera told me a story about filming with a friend from a tiny Louisiana town called Lutcher on the Mississippi River, about bonfires and gumbo and huts that get built on Christmas Eve to light the way for Papa Noël. The huts are in various shapes, but one queer hut was built in a “specific aesthetic,” he explained.

You’re in the middle of rural Louisiana, so there’s guys in camo and Trump stickers everywhere, but everyone’s really happy. It’s chaos … somehow, the queens always find this one hut. He builds this beautiful structure that’s a perfect triangle. This beautiful precise triangle. And we just watched all these different kinds of queens stop. These older queens came by it and said, “We knew you were family because we saw how perfect that triangle was.” And there’s Black queens with us from New Orleans and old queens from other places and a jukebox playing the SZA album. And all these queens just found it aesthetically. It was fascinating.

“Queer gesture is ancestral,” a friend texted me recently. There is a queer desire for history, an attraction to certain cultural forms, to past utopias, to promise. The British writer James Butler, at the opening of his country’s pride month earlier this year, argued that visions of queer pasts, and the alternate possibilities for the future that they suggest, could point a way out of the divide between straight-imitating marriage and the “prim moralising and competitive fragility” of some contemporary would-be radical queer thought. Ultimately, imagining a utopian future, or even present, can incubate thoughts that point their way past the imagined utopia’s inevitable shortcomings. The point is not to luxuriate in what might have been, but to, in Butler’s words, “turn to our second-rate compromises, our untransformed society, our still too timid demands for real equality and say—into the woodchipper with it all!”

Of course, there are still immediate emergencies in queer politics as in all politics, emergencies that require a response broader than any simple identity politics can provide. But we also need something to be for. May Herrera tempt more of us to imagine change with queer ancestral qualities, change that learns from our past, and ultimately, change on the scale that we need it.

          South Korea Shuts the Gates      Cache   Translate Page      

In late 2016, South Koreans took to the streets for months of massive protests against government corruption that became known as the “Candlelight Revolution.” At one point, crowds in Seoul were estimated at over 1 million. The overwhelmingly peaceful protests deposed President Park Geun-hye and landed her behind bars. The protesters achieved tangible results, garnering international praise for their organized, nonviolent political activism.

Now, hundreds of thousands of Koreans are back in the streets, and though they haven’t swelled to quite the same size as the anti-Park demonstrations, they are once again too large to ignore. These protests, which began in June, are against the presence of about 500 Yemeni refugees on the island of Jeju (the nation’s southernmost territory and a tourism hot spot billed as “Korea’s Hawaii”). On an island with 660,000 residents, and in a nation of over 50 million, it’s a negligible amount of people—especially considering that South Korea has the 11th-largest economy in the world. But 500 is considered far too many in a country that accepts fewer refugees than almost any comparable nation. (Only about 4 percent of applicants are accepted.)

More than 3 million Yemenis have been displaced by the brutal war between a U.S.-backed Saudi Arabia–led coalition and the Houthi rebels, and tens of millions more are at risk of cholera and malnutrition. The U.N. has dubbed it the greatest humanitarian crisis in the world. But many Koreans are convinced that the Yemenis are somehow “fake” refugees because they have cellphones and clean clothes.

For a country intimately familiar with wartime refugees resulting from its own bloody conflict, the hostile attitudes can be difficult for foreigners to grasp. Since 1953, up to 300,000 North Koreans have fled the country, and over 30,000 defectors currently live in South Korea.

The Yemenis began trickling in from nearby majority-Muslim country Malaysia (also featuring visa-free access, leading many Yemenis to seek refuge there initially) in December 2017, which is when budget carrier AirAsia began direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to Jeju. Previously, the resort island waived visa requirements for many foreign travelers to promote tourism (which has resulted in legions of Chinese travelers drawn by its famous beaches; this is yet another sore spot for locals). The government has since slammed that window shut, removing Yemen from the list of accepted countries for visa-free entry in June. The move elicited international criticism and appeared to be a concession to the protesters.

An anti-asylum online petition broke records last summer, drawing over 700,000 signatures and forcing President Moon Jae-in (himself a child of North Korean wartime refugees) to vow tighter screening and enhanced border control. The government has so far refused to grant the Yemenis official refugee status, instead giving them one-year residence permits and initially containing them to Jeju—where they have received a frigid reception for a subtropical volcanic island.

“I suppose I have a negative viewpoint because Muslims have had a lot of criminals and terrorists in other places” says Park Jong-hee, a 21-year-old college student. “I’m afraid of sexual violence against women.”

Song Jae-hyun, a 38-year-old entertainer, is somewhere in the middle. “Korea does need more policies to promote acceptance of different cultures. Yet there are also many foreign criminals in Jeju, and the people there are concerned about damage to their way of life.”

Widespread youth unemployment and economic disenfranchisement play a role in these sentiments, as does the monocultural country’s deeply ingrained xenophobia and racism. Like its neighbor Japan, South Korea is a country where the foreign population is below 5 percent. Some Jeju residents are so afraid of the asylum-seekers that they no longer allow their children to play outside. There is a widespread perception that the Yemeni refugees are potential job stealers, rapists, or terrorists—or simply that they won’t assimilate.

“The Yemeni refugees do not accept different cultures. My friends in Jeju have told me about this,” Park Jong-hee adds.

The debate over the refugees comes at the same time as a controversy involving K-pop’s biggest act, the boy band BTS. Last month they were featured on Time magazine’s cover, after previously being named one of the 25 most influential people on the internet. In September, the group was invited to speak at the U.N. General Assembly, following in the footsteps of entertainer-activists like Emma Watson. But the group has also come under fire for several incidents, including one where a member was photographed smiling and wearing a Nazi-era SS Death’s Head hat, and another where they posed for a crass photo shoot at a Holocaust memorial. More recently, another member wore a T-shirt depicting two atom-bomb mushroom clouds and a slogan appearing to celebrate the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, leading to more friction between the always-tense relations between Japan and Korea.

Lee Taek-Gwang Lee, a cultural critic and professor at Kyung Hee University in Seoul, told the Guardian these scandals are symptomatic of the nation’s struggle to reconcile nationalist sentiments with its growing global cultural presence: “BTS insist they are a global brand, but their identity is rooted in Korean nationalism, as it is with many young South Koreans,” he said.

Bigotry and xenophobia can’t shoulder all of the blame—economic conditions and insecurity about the future are also driving these protests. Youth unemployment nationwide is close to 10 percent, and that likely contributed to an all-time low of marriages in 2017. Like their American counterparts, young Koreans are putting off marriage until they feel more economically stable. A popular internet meme among young Koreans is “Hell Joseon,” (meaning “Hell Korea”) which can refer to economic inequality, youth unemployment, the notoriously brutal Korean work culture that is literally killing people, and a host of other social issues. Predictably, President Moon’s approval rating has been falling as the unemployment rate has risen.

Of course, the angriest voices are the loudest, but there’s certainly no shortage of Koreans with more sympathetic views. Lee Jin, a 36-year-old academic director at a private academy (or hagwon) views the refugees through a historical lens. “During and after the Korean War, we got a lot of international help from other countries. It’s important to do something in return, and help these refugees,” she says.

“Racism does contribute, but this young generation doesn’t have a clue about the past, and the favors our country was given—favors that we need to return to others. A lot of people simply don’t want to share even any little piece of the pie.”

Some Jeju residents have been welcoming, opening their homes to these asylum-seekers. Local civic groups, religious organizations, and expat teachers have teamed up to create the Jeju People’s Coalition for Refugee Rights, working to provide food, housing, and Korean language classes for the Yemenis.

Esmail al-Qublani, a 31-year-old Yemeni refugee currently still in Jeju, says that “overall, it was a great welcome. Because this is a tourist island, we actually haven’t encountered much xenophobia.” The hardest part for al-Qublani, a journalist in his home country, has been employment. “Finding work on Jeju island has been very difficult, but now there are more opportunities since a lot of us have traveled to the mainland.” So why are they being labeled “fake” by some Koreans?

“You’d have to ask them,” he says, his voice heavy with exhaustion. “We are only humans. We are refugees from a war. If they can get to know us, they will come to understand our reality by getting to know us one by one—if they want. We’re easy to make friends with.”

Lee Yu-lim, an unemployed 24-year-old woman, noted that “they came to Korea because their life was so hard. I feel empathy for them. And not all Islamic people are terrorists.” As far as the economic effects, Lee sees it as a positive: “They can start businesses, create more jobs, and help to grow the economy.” Indeed, a Yemeni restaurant opened in November: Wardah (Arabic for flower) already seems pretty popular with the locals.

But the hostility remains. Lee Hyang, the leader of an anti-refugee activist group in Jeju, told a Bloomberg reporter the refugees are “not only a threat to our people, but they’re also a threat to our future generation, because of our youth unemployment issue … they’re not even real refugees. If they were women or babies, I would believe them, but they’re able-bodied men. They’re fake, like fake news.”

The bottom line is that even after months, South Korea has refused to grant even a single Yemeni refugee status—although in October, 339 were granted the humanitarian visa. This means they can finally leave the island and travel within the mainland peninsula, but their ability to seek employment is curtailed, and they won’t receive rights that official refugee status would grant (among them health care, labor insurance, and the opportunity to bring their families into the country).

Though it’s one of the world’s richest countries, and one that was founded by a devastating war that sparked its own refugee crisis, many Koreans still aren’t ready to open their country’s door to others.

          They Called Her “the Che Guevara of Abortion Reformers”      Cache   Translate Page      

There was nothing remarkable about the small woman carrying a box of leaflets—certainly nothing to justify the clutch of reporters waiting for her across from San Francisco’s Federal Building on a July morning in 1966. Still, there they were. She arrived at exactly 9 a.m., greeted them, and began distributing fliers to anyone who passed. There were two of them: One was a yellow slip of paper titled “Classes in Abortion,” listing topics like female anatomy, foreign abortion specialists, and police questioning. The other—which she gave only to the assembled journalists and the five women who signed up for her class that Wednesday evening—described two techniques for DIY abortions. “I am attempting to show women an alternative to knitting needles, coat hangers, and household cleaning agents,” she told the reporters, adding that she had notified San Francisco police of her whereabouts and plans.

The woman was Patricia Maginnis, a laboratory technician and founder of the Society for Humane Abortion, an organization that she ran out of the front room of her small apartment in San Francisco. She’d started the SHA in 1962 (back then, it was called the Citizens Committee for Humane Abortion Laws). Arguably the first organization of its kind in America, its mandate was radical: The SHA sought to repeal abortion laws, endorse elective abortions, and offer women any resources it could in the meantime. These resources would come to include “the List,” an up-to-date directory of safe abortion specialists outside the country, classes on DIY abortions, and symposia where sympathetic doctors could confer with each other about the safest and best abortion techniques. SHA would eventually formalize its legal strategy with a branch called the Association to Repeal Abortion Laws (ARAL, which would form the basis for NARAL), specifically devoted to challenging legislation.

But on this particular day, and on this particular mission, Maginnis claimed she was acting alone, outside of her organization. The leaflets were her way of knowingly violating both a city ordinance and Section 601 of the California Business and Professions Code, which declared it unlawful to distribute information about abortion. She was also flouting Penal Code 276, which made it a crime to “solicit[] any woman to submit to any operation, or to the use of any means whatever, to procure a miscarriage.” The violation was the point: Maginnis had politely informed the police of her every move in advance. The aim was to goad the legal apparatus into an ugly confrontation that it preferred to keep as merely a threat; she wanted to make the system own the consequences of its laws. “I could get arrested for soliciting women to undergo a felony,” Maginnis told the alt-weekly Berkeley Barb, “but I feel it is necessary at this point to have a test case.” To get a law thrown out, you first need to go to court. And to get to court, you must be arrested.

She’d launched her leaflet campaign about six weeks earlier, and the police had so far refused to respond to her provocation (some cops would later tell Maginnis that they knew she wanted to be arrested—implying this was why they’d refrained). Still, things were going smoothly enough this morning; a man named Steve Hooper, writing for the Barb, described the women to whom Maginnis gave leaflets as ranging from neutral to receptive. Some wished her luck. (As for the men, they “seemed indifferent except for one old suit who said he wanted a leaflet for his secretary,” Hooper wrote.)

Then it happened. While the reporters watched, a documentarian named Gary Bentley interviewed Maginnis for 10 minutes with a camera crew. Content with his footage, he asked his cameraman to film as he walked up to Maginnis. Here’s Hooper describing what happened next:

With microphone in hand and cameraman turned on, he said, “I’m placing you under citizen’s arrest for violating Section 188 of the Municipal Police Code. What do you think of that?”

“Excuse me, please,” Pat Maginnis said, and she hurried after one more woman to give her a leaflet.

When the police arrived in response to Bentley’s citizen’s arrest, they did so unwillingly. They tried to argue that they weren’t the ones arresting her even as they helped Maginnis into a cop car. It didn’t matter. Maginnis’ “test case” paid off. San Francisco’s Section 188 would be declared unconstitutional, and the case against her would be thrown out in court. It was the first of her many legal victories.

A social history of American abortion shows two things: 1) that it’s always been around, and 2) that anti-choice efforts tend to intensify in response to women’s perceived “liberation.” This was certainly true when Pat Maginnis came of age. Women had joined the workforce in unprecedented numbers during World War II, and the 1950s were engaged in the genie-rebottling project of fetishizing traditional gender roles. One result, as Leslie Reagan points out in When Abortion Was a Crime, was a sharp increase in the (medicalized) oversight of women’s choices. A system in which abortions were decided between the patient and her doctor or midwife would eventually give way to hospital committees, which debated on a case-by-case basis whether women deserved “therapeutic” abortions. The discussions were humiliating and sometimes even coercive, particularly when they concerned lower-income women and women of color: It wasn’t uncommon for committees to approve the requested abortion if the woman agreed to be sterilized. As medical bureaucracies solidified, hospitals started reporting abortions (and attempted abortions) to police.

That this compromised women’s privacy and subjected their health care to literal policing barely registered in these discussions, which tended overwhelmingly to prioritize the physicians’ perspective rather than women’s needs. Doctors worried about the semilegal status of “therapeutic” abortions, but they also didn’t like committees telling them what to do with their patients. In either case, the debate revolved around doctors’ preferences and anxieties. There were plenty of organizations trying to reform abortion laws, ranging from Planned Parenthood—which in 1955 held an “abortion conference” to address possible reform efforts—to the California Committee to Legalize Abortion. Some abortion activists also chose to work within the existing framework: steering patients toward favorable hospital committees or training women on what to say to get “therapeutic” abortions, whether by emphasizing excessive vomiting or offering up stories that would earn them permission on psychiatric grounds.

Maginnis aimed for more than reform. She wanted a total system overhaul. As a figure in feminist history, Maginnis, now 90 years old, may not loom as large as a Margaret Sanger or a Betty Friedan. But while she’s finally getting some belated recognition, she was never particularly interested in taking credit for her work. Nor was she much invested in making herself or her positions respectable or palatable to mainstream culture. This may have made her an awkward figure for a movement that was then treading delicate territory. And yet, a decade before Roe, with her ungainly activism, her proclivity for wearing clothes she’d found on the street, and her righteous, unquenchable rage, Maginnis helped to fundamentally reshape the abortion debate into the terms we’re still using today. She was the first to take a passionate, public stance arguing that the medical stranglehold over women’s reproductive lives was corrosive. And the Society for Humane Abortion was arguably the very first American organization to advocate a pro-choice position that centered the woman, instead of the legal dilemmas of the physician—specifically, her right to privacy and choice. Rejecting the finicky gatekeeping protocols, the committees and evaluations and red tape, Maginnis proposed that the only question anyone should ask prior to approving an abortion was a simple one: whether the woman wanted it.

Pat Maginnis grew up with six siblings in Okarche, Oklahoma, during the Great Depression. Her father, a veterinarian, barely scraped by. Her family’s troubles were compounded by Catholic strictures: Her mother had converted in order to marry her father and—because birth control was not an option—consequently continued having children long after the doctors advised against it. “She had constant ‘female trouble,’ ” Maginnis says, recalling her mother’s unhappiness and pain. “I don’t know what that meant, but she had constant problems.” Her father, the illegitimate son of an opera singer, was differently scarred by the vagaries of unplanned pregnancy. “My grandma was on her way to be a star,” Maginnis says, “but she got pregnant. And apparently pregnancy was just a killer of dreams.” Her father never got over the humiliating circumstances of his birth. “He was a good soul, but forever tortured because he had been conceived out of wedlock.”

It’s hard to separate Maginnis’ refusal to become a parent herself from the misery that this litany of reproductive events inflicted on her family. Maginnis says that her father was so abusive that her older brother confessed to her that growing up he’d feared for his life more than once. Her family was not, in consequence (and despite its size and religious piety), particularly close. Some years after she started the SHA, her mother sent her a letter: “Dear Patricia,” Maginnis reads now, affecting a formal, slightly prissy voice, “I was thinking you must be about 40 years old. I do think you could do something besides teaching these girls to commit murder. P.S. If you come this way, do look us up. Love, Mother.”

It was a sufficiently chilly relationship—and Maginnis was so eager to get away—that she describes her banishment to a boarding school as a relief and remembers her mother’s trip to visit her in California with some acidity. “I never talked to her about my sex life,” Maginnis says. I’d asked whether she ever discussed abortion with her mother; that her answer took this form surprised me slightly. I wouldn’t necessarily have used the phrase “sex life” (which, to me, connotes pleasure) to include abortions. But Maginnis would; in fact, that was sort of her point. Any campaign for elective abortion is, of course, at least in part aimed at granting that women, too, might find joy and delight in sex (rather than just pain, danger, and obligation). As a guilt-ridden ex-Catholic myself, I was both baffled and impressed by Maginnis’ immunity to the shame that ailed her family: How does a soft-spoken, scrupulously polite Oklahoma girl who attended Catholic schools with strict Catholic parents shed her sexual guilt to become not just sexually adventurous, but a pioneer in activist lawbreaking?

When Maginnis was growing up, the family’s house looked out on a highway where convoys of young soldiers would pass during World War II. The Maginnis girls didn’t date, but, Pat says, “I was bursting with hormones.” She gasps at the memory of a convoy of young men passing her house: “Oh, I was just—I ran in the house, and I grabbed a pink satin bedspread. … In about five minutes, I made a halter.” Her parents came home to find their 14-year-old busily waving at trucks filled with men in her pink halter. When she saw her parents, she ran back inside and changed back into her gray togs, but it was no good: She was sent to a convent school. “I was naughty,” she says. But as with all these sorts of stories, the prudery only half-strangled her desire.

Instead of going straight to college like her sisters, she went to work in a lab at the Bureau of Mines in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, and funded her own sea voyage to the Netherlands to meet a longtime pen pal and notional fiancé. They did not marry in the end. (“I knew that the intimacy required and the responsibilities and the thought of children I couldn’t face,” she says. “I decided that marriage was not for me.”) Then, partly because a friend told her the uniforms were cute, she joined the Women’s Army Corps. She was stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina until she was spotted walking with a black soldier: “The captain called me in and scolded me. She said, ‘You’re setting a bad example for young white women who might join the military.’ ” She was shipped off to Panama as punishment.

During those two years in Central America, she experienced a different kind of discrimination. She’d trained as a surgical technician, but instead of being allowed to work in surgery as she’d hoped, she was assigned to the pediatrics and obstetrics wards—the realm of women. There, she was exposed to women suffering from botched abortions, women being forced to give birth, infants with terrible abnormalities. What she didn’t get in surgical experience, she got in perspective. “A general overview of the status of women,” as she puts it to me. “And I wasn’t at all happy with it.” Then she went to college at San Jose State—and got pregnant. She’d been fitted for a diaphragm. Used foam. None of it worked.

Maginnis is amiable and funny. She has a gift for impressions and chuckles ruefully at things I find sad or hard to hear. But when I ask her about her decision to terminate, she speaks with real anger—present-tense anger she still feels, decades later. “I was not in the family-ing business, and a child coming from me was not going to happen,” she tells me. “I simply thought my parents were ruthlessly forced into parenthood, and they … took it. They accepted it,” she says. “My mother would tell you she enjoyed having children. I didn’t go through childhood with that impression.”

She got her first abortion in Mexico and swore to herself that she would never again leave her own country to get medical care. She spent the next decade producing a list of legitimate abortion providers outside the country while also working quietly with those within it. Despite her best efforts, she would get pregnant twice more. But she would continue to have a sex life. And the horror of having to wrestle down her own fertility forged her into the formidable antagonist to the law that she became.

* * *

It helped, perhaps, that Maginnis was no longer young by the mid-1960s. She came of age long before the sexual revolution, which meant she had a particular experience of—and a particular fury about—what women had been routinely expected to tolerate. It’s hard for statistics to express just how urgent the abortion conversation was in the 1960s, or how difficult it was to even have the conversation, given the laws. In 1961, Los Angeles County Hospital admitted over 3,500 patients treated for illegal abortions. As of 1967, almost 80 percent of the women who died as a consequence of botched abortions were nonwhite.

From Dorothy Fadiman’s documentary “Motherhood by Choice, Not Chance”

Maginnis can’t pinpoint a single moment that turned her into an activist. She admits to once feeling great sympathy for a celebrity who was pilloried for needing an abortion, but it’s clear that there was no single precipitating incident. Her work, rather, was inspired by a slow and building rage. “What I saw was law, medicine, and religion were largely at fault for our problems,” she says.

When Maginnis launched her leaflet campaign, she chose a location that would maximize her ability to confront a medical community she saw as at best patronizing to women and at worst exploitative and controlling. The state Board of Medical Examiners had gathered at the University of San Francisco to discuss the implementation of hospital committees that would determine whether women could receive abortions. As the mostly male board debated the circumstances under which women could be forced to give birth, Maginnis was outside handing out information on how to abort without the help of the doctors within. She was shocked at how unseriously the board took their mandate. She told the Berkeley Barb that when she’d handed some board members a leaflet titled “Are you Pregnant?” with abortion information on it, they “twittered like a bunch of schoolgirls.”

This, she felt, was the collective effect of the laws and ordinances that made even talking about abortion illegal: The entire concept had become untouchable, a boogeyman. “The word abortion was taboo,” she says. “And I thought: That’s crazy. People won’t talk about abortion! They’re afraid to. I’m going to talk about abortion! ABORTION!” she yelled. “Women weren’t talking about it. They were afraid to talk about it.”

Maginnis wasn’t. She relied on logistical help from two women, Lana Phelan and Rowena Gurner, who joined her to form the Society for Humane Abortion’s central trio, which came to be known as the “Army of Three.” Maginnis was the fire, Gurner the strategist and organizational genius, and Phelan the organization’s eloquent mouthpiece. Gurner, like Maginnis, also worked full time, professionalizing the organization in her spare hours. She spent many nights sleeping on SHA’s floor. Gurner “had polish,” Maginnis tells me, her eyes lighting up. “She gave me $20 once. Now, Patricia!” she says, mimicking her. “You go buy a new dress for this occasion, and don’t bring something that you found on the street or in the thrift store!

Gurner’s gift for strategy and Maginnis’ grit turned the leafleting plan into an all-out, accelerating assault on laws they saw as punitive or unjust—using themselves as bait. “I plan to leaflet for abortion until they get sick of me and arrest me or repeal the law,” Maginnis had announced to the Berkeley Barb when she launched her campaign on June 16, 1966. Her initial plan had been to distribute a thousand leaflets. A week later, when she hadn’t been arrested, she escalated. “My minimum goal is to distribute 50,000 leaflets by July 25, telling women where they can get abortions,” she announced through the press. When she finally was arrested (in late July, thanks to that “citizen’s arrest” by Gary Bentley), she caused the city ordinance under which she was arrested to be ruled unconstitutional. She had no intention of stopping there. “I was arrested under a local ordinance,” she told the Barb in 1966. “Now it’s the state laws that need changing.”

When the San Mateo County district attorney announced that if Maginnis and Gurner showed up, he intended to enforce California’s state law forbidding the dissemination of written matter on abortions, the pair immediately arranged a class in San Mateo that covered abortion laws and DIY abortions. As Gurner put it to the Barb: “We just want to get this law on trial. … We obviously and willingly broke the law. And we did it so that no DA could weasel out because of ‘insufficient evidence.’ ” It worked. They were arrested on Feb. 20, 1967, and faced (according to the Barb) a sentence of five to seven years in state prison if found guilty. While their hearing was in progress—in a courthouse in Redwood City—an unrepentant Gurner and Maginnis advertised that they were still looking for a place in Berkeley they could rent on Thursday nights to hold more abortion classes. (The room needed to hold 50 people, and they were willing to pay $10 a night.)

It took six years from their 1967 arrests for Maginnis and Gurner’s efforts to pay off. Initially, both women were convicted of violating Section 601 of the California Business and Professions Code—the state statute that made it unlawful to advertise abortion. But in 1973, the state Court of Appeals overturned their convictions, ruling that Section 601 was overly broad—for one thing, it “does not distinguish between abortions which are permitted and those which are not”—and thus unconstitutional.

The Army of Three hadn’t been trying to get arrested merely as a matter of strategy: They had real information to distribute, information that was hardest to obtain for women who weren’t rich. Maginnis was incensed by a medical consensus that effectively discriminated against the poor. “The medical profession’s committee idea of legalized abortion is very discriminatory,” she told the Barb. “It will help those with lots of money or contacts, not the majority of women.” Lower-income women suffered—like the third member of the Army of Three, Phelan, who struggled to collect the $50 she needed for an illegal abortion. Women in search of abortions were also easy to exploit. According to Maginnis, some parties whose phone numbers and addresses were being circulated (or sold) as abortion providers weren’t actually doctors. This discovery, and the accompanying stories of botched abortions and sexually exploitative abortionists, spurred her to create “the List.” Essentially a Yelp for abortion seekers, the List offered a continuously updated and reliable list of qualified abortion providers in Japan, Sweden, and Mexico. The Jane Collective in Chicago would follow suit a few years later, performing the abortions themselves.

By 1969, the Society for Humane Abortion claimed to have sent 12,000 women out of the country to get abortions from reliable, trustworthy providers. To give you a sense of just how necessary the List was, here’s an excerpt from one List user’s earlier attempt to obtain an abortion domestically (as printed in a set of letters to ARAL published by the Los Angeles Free Press): “I was two weeks along then and he made me wait until I was 3 months along. Then he said it was too late to get any help from anyone but he would do it if I would sleep with him!” The classes SHA organized instructed women on every aspect of an abortion: how to schedule one, how to prepare, what to expect, how it was done, how to respond to police interrogations if you had to be hospitalized, and how—if you couldn’t travel—to perform your own.

The classes sometimes included DIY abortion kits with items like gauze, a thermometer, cotton, and a syringe. Maginnis was by all accounts a vivid teacher. Newspapers reported that she lectured using an IUD for a pointer and that she “graphically illustrated the dangers of unsanitary abortion by holding up anal bacteria cultures and infected blood samples.” The class taught women female anatomy. It instructed them on how to calculate how many weeks pregnant they were. It instructed them on exactly how to call for an appointment (the woman, not the man, should place the call).

These classes were understood by many to be essential but legally risky. When the Los Angeles Free Press took the bold step of republishing the entire class’s contents across several pages of an October 1967 issue, the layout was anxiously peppered with editor’s notes and legal disclaimers like: “The Free Press can not and does not advise women who are not legally entitled to an abortion to follow the advice of Pat Maginnis.”

The Society for Humane Abortion didn’t interact much with the feminist movement or Planned Parenthood directly, at least at first. “It was too touchy,” Maginnis says. In the SHA’s early days, Planned Parenthood was more invested in advocating for contraception than abortion. Margaret Sanger’s theory was that abortion would become unnecessary if women had sufficient access to contraception. Maginnis disagreed. “Margaret Sanger, bless her,” she says. “We can’t thank her enough for Planned Parenthood, but it isn’t enough.” Under Maginnis’ leadership, the SHA spoke out—and in certain regards, provoked change—in ways Planned Parenthood wouldn’t. “We used to say we made Planned Parenthood respectable,” Maginnis laughs.

Her admiration of Sanger, though, is genuine. “Sanger took rotten eggs and tomatoes and rotten fruit thrown at her when she went out, and I don’t think people know that today,” she says. She understood that an organization with Planned Parenthood’s institutional heft needed to keep some distance from the SHA; Maginnis’ strategy of flagrantly flouting the law had made her something of a too-hot-to-handle legend.

When the Therapeutic Abortion Act was signed into law by California Gov. Ronald Reagan in 1967, the Army of Three planned a program of civil disobedience. The act, an unhappy compromise between groups whose politics hadn’t yet coalesced into well-defined positions like “pro-choice” and “pro-life,” ostensibly aimed to make legal abortion more widely available. (National Review called the signing of this bill Reagan’s “darkest hour.”) Abortion at the time was only legal to save the life of the mother; the act made “therapeutic” abortion legal in cases that would “gravely impair” women’s mental as well as physical health. But it also added a draconian 20-week limitation and required that any medical committee discussion of a prospective abortion for reasons of rape or incest include the relevant district attorney. Functionally, as even some attorneys at the time argued, it meant that wealthy women (who dealt with private hospitals) would have access to abortions, whereas women in public hospitals would be bound by a more conservative take on the law: They would need to show sufficiently “severe” mental distress—like psychosis—to obtain a legal abortion. (“How much for a psychosis?” reads a political cartoon Maginnis once drew, depicting a patient asking a psychiatrist for a diagnosis that would legitimize a therapeutic abortion.)

“We’re going to instruct women in the arts of phony psychosis and false hemorrhage,” Pat Maginnis told reporters. “This unbelievable piece of legislative slop must be violated to the point that the medical profession and legislature is pressured into accepting more modern abortion techniques.” ARAL issued a leaflet asking members of Congress whether they would request permission to get a vasectomy or treatment for venereal disease from a panel of female doctors.

It was a combative stance—and a sign of SHA’s uncompromising position on the right to choose—for a bill that Planned Parenthood, among others, now credits with being among the first to functionally legalize abortion.

* * *

The “Che Guevara of abortion reformers,” as alt-weeklies called her at the time, now seems like an unlikely avatar of female rage. When I visited her at her home this summer, I found a 90-year-old woman who laughs a lot and peppers her speech with gentle exclamations. “Oh, my goodness,” she chuckles, remembering the time she invited police to attend a class she was teaching on DIY abortions—and they asked her to pay $3 an hour for a female officer’s time. “I think a policewoman did show up, but more out of personal interest,” Maginnis says wryly. She conveys a bemused mildness I found hard to reconcile with the working-class firebrand I’d expected.

But there’s no real contradiction here: The woman who said “excuse me” to the man detaining her in 1966 is also the woman who faced down the San Francisco homicide squad in 1959 in the hospital while recovering from a self-induced abortion. Had she given herself an abortion? the police asked. “Sure I did,” she replied. “Want me to demonstrate how in court?”

In her 10th decade, Maginnis remains equal parts polite and independent. She lives alone in a house in the San Antonio neighborhood of East Oakland that she bought back in 1979 for a song (the owner had tried to burn it down for the insurance money). Until just a few years ago, when she gave her archives to a library, her house was filled with several decades’ worth of handwritten letters from women telling her about their abortions or asking for help.

In the ’60s, especially given the respectable caution that characterized organizations like Planned Parenthood, there was a radical politics to the matter-of-factness with which the Army of Three openly talked about their own abortions. And that matter-of-factness still feels radical today. The second time she got pregnant, Maginnis recalls, she was deeply frustrated at the prospect of being forced to leave the country again for an abortion. But by then, she says, “I had figured out, if I start just giving my uterus no rest, that fetus is going to fall out.”

Startled, I ask Maginnis to explain. She elaborates that her plan was to “squat down and take my clean, scrubbed fingers and manipulate until I could get it to rebel and kick the fetus out.”

“So you could reach your cervix?” I ask.

“Oh yeah, very easily. You probably could too.”

“Does that work?”

“I manipulated, I worked on it, and finally, at five months, the fetus went into—I went into labor. It took a long time and a lot of work.”

Five months of daily effort to induce an abortion, followed by labor and police questioning—all instead of a simple, fast, safe procedure. In telling me this story, she betrays none of the story’s weight; rather, there is a relationship between her tight understatement and her rage.

In interviews, Phelan was less circumspect and much more graphic about the horrors she endured because safe abortions weren’t easily available. After she had one child, her doctor told her another pregnancy would kill her but didn’t tell her how to avoid getting pregnant. When she did—as a woman, she once said, “you don’t know how to say no to your husband. That silly Bible says you can’t say no!”—it took her so long to gather the $50 she needed for an illegal abortion that by the time she’d saved it, she was four months pregnant. The abortionist—a woman on the outskirts of Tampa, Florida—stuffed her uterus with slippery elm bark and told her not to come back. She was at her sister-in-law’s house when she started to feel extremely ill. She’d told no one, not even her husband. As she recalled in 2004:

This is a thing you do yourself. And if you die and go to hell, it’s you that goes, not anybody else. So I excused myself to go to the bathroom because it was hurting so. When I sat down on the john and looked down, there was a little tiny hand protruding from my vagina and the blood was just flying, and I thought, “Oh my God, what do I do now?”

I didn’t take as long to think about it as Bush did the war … [laughs] I gathered up all the toilet tissue I could get in my hand and stuffed it back inside of me, pushed everything back up inside my vagina and just packed it. And got all the blood off I could and cleaned everything up. And then I went out back inside and said I had to go home because I was so sick, and that was not a lie.

She was 16. First came fear. The anger would follow. This seems to be a pattern: Restrict women’s rights, force them to suffer needlessly, blame them when they fail impossible tests, and you will eventually create unsuspected forces for change. “It seemed to me when I got involved wasn’t really when I got involved [in the abortion rights movement],” Maginnis says. “I’d been involved for years before, just not driven to do anything except be angry. In a constant rage over it. And wondering why women, in addition to myself, were in a constant upheaval.”

Was Roe v. Wade a relief when it was passed? I ask her. “For me it wasn’t a big relief,” she says. It had felt more like the expected course of events—reality inching closer to how things should be. But then she continues: “I thought, yeah, that is a good thing. Now, let’s hope we can at least maintain the healthy ideas of it being available. We don’t have to sneak, we don’t have to beg.”

If the Federalist Society—which supplied the list of judges from which Donald Trump chose Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court—has its way, we’re in danger of returning to the times when women had to sneak and beg. Trump pledged during his campaign that Roe would be overturned “automatically” through the pro-life judges he would nominate. It probably won’t be so straightforward: The route the GOP is taking to greatly restrict women’s access to abortion has been circuitous, with progress marked by legal restrictions, by expanding definitions of fetal personhood, by permitting women to be lied to in the service of a single end goal. As my colleague Dahlia Lithwick has written, “women’s experiences, memories, and suffering don’t matter; their control over the truth of what they themselves have lived through is determined by those who win.”

Faced with a similar orthodoxy half a century ago, Maginnis and her cohort refused to let it stand.

The classes a modern-day SHA might teach would likely be different. There’s the internet, for one. The first time we met, I asked Maginnis what she thought women should be doing now, as the country seems poised once again to try to control our bodies. “I’ve thought about that,” she said then. “If I was going to reinvolve myself at this point, what would be the entry point? Kind of like setting out a map, looking for an entry.” She doesn’t quite have an answer. Yet.

It’s late afternoon on my final visit with Maginnis, and the warmth and long conversation have made the upstairs room where we sit feel especially lived-in. Her compatriots Gurner and Phelan died years ago. It’s not lost on me that I’m talking to someone who fought for reproductive freedom pre-Roe, at a moment when a Supreme Court justice has just been hand-picked to take it away again. In recent months, rage has been much on my mind. If over half of Americans stand to have a committee of men overrule their right to bodily autonomy after a mere 45 years, we can learn a lot from Pat Maginnis—about how women survived, and how they died, and how they fought. So what should we do now? I ask her again, as she raises the blinds to open the window overlooking the street below. “Keep talking about the issue,” she says. “Sure, not everyone is a brilliant speaker, but I think people have to keep talking about it.” She looks at me, her eyes bright. “Don’t you?”


          Bari Weiss and Eve Peyser’s Secret to Cross-Political Friendship      Cache   Translate Page      

Just in time for the holidays, the New York Times has published a heartwarming tale of Twitter enemies who learned to be friends. In the piece, Bari Weiss, the Intellectual Dark Web–fetishizing Times opinion writer, and Vice politics writer Eve Peyser explain how they came to like each other’s IRL personas better than their Twitter ones. After a year or so of “tsk-tsking” Weiss’ columns but suspecting the internet’s backlash against her was unduly harsh, Peyser finally met her right-leaning counterpart and, she tells Weiss, “every tender thought I’d had about you was confirmed.”

I’ve enjoyed previous pieces of this ilk, as when Lindy West met her worst Twitter troll or Sam Biddle dined with Justine Sacco, the woman who got fired from her job after Biddle posted about her very bad, Twitter-based attempt at satirizing racist views. It can be illuminating to watch people confronting the real people on the other end of their tweets, forced to reckon with human beings rather than a selection of words typed into an unfeeling machine. And I always wonder how people with conflicting political views maintain deep and fulfilling friendships.

Weiss and Peyser’s conversation doesn’t provide much substance on either of these fronts. Readers never learn what exactly they disagree about, nor how close their friendship is. They never mention politics in the piece; in fact, Weiss says they “haven’t talked a lot about politics” at all. They also fail to elaborate on the supposed Twitter enmity that provides the premise for the piece. What did Peyser tweet about Weiss’ columns? What did Weiss tweet back? Peyser says she liked one of Weiss’s most controversial pieces, and the only tweet either mentions is one in which Peyser wished for “an interview between Weiss and her Twitter haters”—more a premature justification of this column than an insult.

Without any specific insight into what it’s like to develop a relationship in the face of opposing worldviews and bad Twitter blood—and in the absence of any evidence that either of those things even exist here—we’re forced to read this dialogue as broad commentary on a familiar idea. And it’s a terrible idea: the notion that political disagreements can and should fall away when two nice and interesting people meet. For one thing, it’s not as radical as Peyser and Weiss make it sound. Yes, when people with different politics focus on their common ground (for Peyser and Weiss, that’s Jewish roots and being women in journalism) they can have a nice time. Almost everyone in the world knows and likes and interacts with people they disagree with, because nobody has the exact same opinions on everything as anyone else.

Also, relegating political views to the category of “things that do not matter in my choice of friends” is remarkably shallow. Political worldviews are about values: Who deserves what kind of treatment, and how far should the government go to ensure they get it? What role should America’s military play in the world, where every decision means death and destruction will be visited on someone, somewhere? How urgent of an issue is climate change? How should we remember and learn from American history? Are we looking for equality, equity, or neither? What future should we leave the next generation, and this one? By flattening what may be fundamental disagreements on these and other issues into a discussion of how Twitter rewards outrage, Weiss and Peyser seem to be conceding that the bombast politics writers display on the internet is performative: all for show in service of their careers. It would have been a much more interesting conversation if they’d admitted that for certain people, politics are primarily a vehicle for fun intellectual argument, not the means by which some individuals retain human rights and others do not.

At one point, Peyser tries to nod to the “privilege” of being able to set politics aside for the sake of a friendship, which in this case allowed her to place an essay in Weiss’ section of the Times. Weiss, unsurprisingly, misses the message, noting that she’d never try to befriend “the conspiracy theorist who called my rabbi asking about me out for coffee,” nor would she expect a black person to meet with a follower of Richard Spencer. Placing herself on a continuum with black people confronting white nationalism allows Weiss to self-identify as a member of the oppressed, not an oppressor, and to sidestep the privilege Peyser asked her to consider—the freedom Weiss, an American white woman, has to, say, cheer on cultural appropriation or blame Palestinian protesters, including children, for their own deaths in the massacre Israeli forces perpetrated on the day of the U.S. Embassy opening in Jerusalem.

Would Weiss befriend a Palestinian protester? Would one befriend her? To confront those kinds of questions—rather than the question of how two white New York women with enviable media gigs and tens of thousands of Twitter followers can possibly find stuff to talk about—would require Weiss and Peyser to recognize that political views, especially those aired in publications like the New York Times, have greater consequences for people who can’t set foot outside their neighborhoods without the permission of a hostile government than they do for newspaper writers on the conference circuit.

Peyser also mischaracterizes the aims of progressive politics when she argues that the “radical empathy” of her leftism has made her “open to being friends with all sorts of people” across the political spectrum. Believing that a vile person deserves health care, housing, freedom from state violence, and a vote in their democracy is not the same as enjoying their company and giving them the benefit of friendship. Elsewhere in the conversation, Peyser asks, “If we dismiss the almost 63 million people who voted for Trump as irredeemably evil, where does that leave us as a society?” Well, it leaves us in a pretty fucked place—but that’s the fault of those who cast their lot with an accused sexual abuser who inflames and feeds off America’s most racist impulses. If “we” dismiss those voters as evil unless they change their values, “we” are refusing to accept racism, misogyny, and authoritarianism. If Peyser wants to ask non-Trump voters, many of whom belong to identity groups Trump has directly threatened, to forgive or befriend the president’s supporters, she should present a better example of cross-political friendship than two white women who both voted for Hillary Clinton.

Weiss and Peyser make a few good points in their conversation. Their observations that criticism hurts most when it’s coming from an ideological peer helps explains how Twitter affects journalists’ emotional well-being, and Peyser’s contention that on today’s internet, “offering the benefit of the doubt to another person is a sign of cowardice, or of not being sufficiently moral” cut me deep. But ultimately, their back-and-forth is a self-congratulatory navel-gazing exercise performed by two people with too little skin in the game to make any clash of principles a friendship deal-breaker. There is an argument to be made that Twitter brings out the worst in people, incentivizing takedowns and trolls. Reducing major political differences to incidental opinions is not the way to make it.

          Holding Dreamers for Ransom      Cache   Translate Page      

Luis Bracamontes, an undocumented immigrant, killed two California policemen in 2014. Bracamontes was a thoroughgoing bad guy, a drug dealer who had twice been deported from the United States. His second deportation was facilitated by Joe Arpaio, then the loudmouthed Republican sheriff of Maricopa County in Arizona. President Donald Trump used Bracamontes to rally his base. “Democrats let [Bracamontes] into the country,” and “Democrats let him stay here.” Even Fox News, after running a midterm campaign ad featuring footage of Bracamontes, was shamed into dropping it.

The immigration debate is tangled with ironies. For one thing, despite Trump’s fulminations, the king of deportations was Barack Obama. During his first term, Obama was mostly focused on health care, but in his second term he tried to make quiet arrangements with Republicans. He struck a deal with them that involved a major upgrade of the government’s two immigration enforcement arms—the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), whose writ goes just to the border, and the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which tracks down undocumented immigrants already in the country. The new hardware and staffing also allowed for a sharp escalation in both agencies’ tactics.

Obama was by no means anti-immigration. In general, he thought that adding working families strengthened the country. But his primary objective was to protect the “Dreamers”—about eight hundred thousand young people who had been brought to the country as children by undocumented parents and had grown up here. Legislation for the Dreamers was first introduced during the George W. Bush administration, with strong support on both sides of the aisle. To qualify, the Dreamers had to be at least eighteen, and they had to have entered the country before they turned sixteen and resided in the United States for at least four consecutive years. They also had to have graduated from high school or passed a GED, joined the military, or enrolled in a higher-education program.

Immigration policy is fiendishly difficult, especially when families are involved. The Trump and Sessions no-exception rule only makes a bad situation worse.

Early in his administration, Trump made sympathetic noises about the Dreamers, as almost anyone would. The ones who came as young children, who didn’t get in trouble with the law, and who had parents who paid taxes, are getting a raw deal. Anecdotally, many of the Dreamers are weak in their native languages, and are facing a traumatic return to an alien country.

More ironies: the implicit quid pro quo of tougher immigration enforcement in exchange for special treatment for promising young people was a fraud. The Republicans got the tougher enforcement they were demanding, but the Dreamers were left empty-handed. Trump’s sympathy for the Dreamers lasted only as long as he could exploit their plight—the new quid pro quo for Dreamer citizenship is to fund Trump’s beloved Wall. (Trump insists the Wall is coming along nicely, although no one can find it, and there is little chance of its being funded by the new Democratic House of Representatives.)

Fortuitously, two federal-appeal suits on behalf of the Dreamers were recently decided in their favor. For the time being, the deportations are suspended. The two appeals circuits that issued those rulings, however, are among the most liberal, and Trump is pushing hard to bring a Dreamers case to the Supreme Court in the current session. With the addition of Brett Kavanaugh to the bench, there is a good chance that the Dreamers will lose. The attitude of the current administration toward immigrants was the hardest that could be conceived, involving forcible separation of children from their parents. Jeff Sessions, the former attorney general, and Kirstjen Nielsen, Secretary of Homeland Security, announced a no-exception policy: an adult immigrant who did not go through a sanctioned asylum port of entry would be considered a criminal and could be imprisoned. Repeated offenses could draw up to ten-year sentences. Because federal prisons cannot accept children, the children of those immigrants had to be separated from their parents, with little regard for human decency. Around two thousand children were separated from their parents, and some were sent to another part of the country.

In a press conference, Nielsen smarmily insisted that there had been no policy changes since the Obama administration. In fact, the contrast is striking. In the previous administration, first priority was given to known criminals, who were “removed” from the country; second priority was given to the most recent immigrants, who were “returned,” ideally before they had built an in-country social network. That dovetailed with Border Patrol protocols to discourage illegal crossings. According to those protocols, which remain in force, every apprehended border-crosser is fingerprinted and traced for a criminal record, and about a fifth are remanded to the local authorities. The rest of the would-be immigrants are subjected to meaningful penalties. Many Mexican nationals who enter the United States illegally also have an application for a U.S. green card. Being caught in an attempt at illegal entry adds five years to the waiting period.

Immigration policy is fiendishly difficult, especially when families are involved. The Trump and Sessions no-exception rule only makes a bad situation worse. The pleasure they seem to take in the process is disgusting.

A judge will now work directly with the approximately 500 survivors that have come forward to determine individual payments. MSU Interim President John Engler said in a statement, “Making the payment on this settlement is an important step for the university, but it is not the only way MSU is accountable to those harmed. The entire campus is focused on implementing the improvements we’ve made in health care practices, reporting policies, campus-wide sexual assault education and prevention efforts and trauma-informed responses and treatment for survivors."

          New non-profit opposes sale of Jefferson City hospital      Cache   Translate Page      
A new Jefferson City group, “A Coalition for Choice” was formed last month in response to a proposal from MU Health care to purchase St. Mary’s Hospital in Jefferson City. The group say’s its’ focal purpose is to fight against monopolies within Mid-Missouri health care as well as to give consumers a choice in their own health care. Connie Farrow, the group’s spokesperson, gave insight on the root of the coalition’s existence. “As more voices were expressed of concern in the community, it was decided to form this coalition. We have had interest expressed from more than 100 individuals in the community. That includes everyone from nurses and physicians and retirees and citizens and employers who all come together to make sure that Jefferson City has two hospitals in place,” Farrow said. Although the members of community have stated their concerns of losing a local hospital, both MU Health and St. Mary’s Hospital-Jefferson City have made statements of their hopes to better the community.

          Comment on Did Senate Republicans cave on Kavanaugh? by I see little hope      Cache   Translate Page      
Annie, The bill to which you refer has been sitting in the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, Chaired by Republican Greg Walden since September 13th. It is Greg Walden and the Republican controlled House who have refused to bring it forward. Thanks to the blue wave of the midterm election, Greg Walden will be removed from his position of Chair on Jan 3, 2019, to be replaced by a Democratic member of Congress. With a newly appointed Democratic Chair of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, a newly (re)appointed Democratic House Speaker in Nancy Pelosi - <b>proven</b> one of the most effective and productive House Speakers in modern history - and a newly elected Democratic majority in the House, the chances of the bill being passed in the House are <i>vastly</i> improved. Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) will be a likely champion of the bill, and Debbie is woman of action and purpose. Once the Empower Care Act finally passes in the House, it will go to the Republican controlled Senate, where Mitch McConnell will summarily bury it. All evidence clearly demonstrates Republicans will have zero interest at all in a bill that would provide <b>roughly 80K people</b>, and their care-givers, wife life-changing care. A bill that would actually <i>save</i> taxpayers money by allowing the disabled to be cared for in the home environment. <i>And</i>, with our aging population and the ravages of dementia and alzheimers, this is a population certain to increase. Despite their thumping in the midterms, Republicans continue to attack and undermine the only advance in affordable care Americans have experienced in generations. The ACA (Obamacare) lead to <b>more than 20 million</b> newly insured Americans. More than 20 million people receiving life-changing care. A law that took a year and half to craft engaging the brightest minds in the world and a law that also <i>saves</i> taxpayers and businesses money in the long run. Yet a law under assault by the Republican party since day one of its passage. A law unlike any before it, repeatedly undermined and attacked. A law that included flaws in its initial design - as has been true with every similarly substantive law of its kind in history - Medicare, Social Security, Bush's Prescription Drug bill etc.. Yet unlike every other bill in the history of our nation - EVERY TIME a fix, a tweak, a slight re-design, an improvement to the bill was offered, that offering was KILLED by an obstructionist GOP intent on crippling the bill and denying Obama a success - country be damned! In the exit polls of the just concluded election, Access To Affordable Health Care was the Number 1 issue of the American people. Polling shows American's support for Obamacare at an all time high. Yet the Republicans continue, unabated, on their assault on the very people who elected them. Nov 29, 2018, NPR - <b>Number Of U.S. Kids Who Don't Have Health Insurance Is On The Rise</b> <blockquote>After years of steady decline, the number of U.S. children without health insurance rose by 276,000 in 2017, according to a Georgetown University report released Thursday. The uninsured rate typically remains stable or drops during times of economic growth. In September, the U.S. unemployment rate hit its lowest level since 1969. "The nation is going backwards on insuring kids and it is likely to get worse," says Joan Alker, co-author of the study and executive director of Georgetown's Center for Children and Families. Alker and other advocates for children's health place the blame for this change on the Trump administration and the Republican-controlled Congress, saying the Republican policies and actions have cast a pall on enrollment in health plans.</blockquote> Nov 28, 2018, NPR - <b>Obamacare Sign-Ups Lag As Trump Slashes Funds For Enrollment Help</b> <blockquote>Consumer assistance groups that help with sign-ups think they know why enrollment is down: They don't have the staff to help as many customers as before because the Trump administration slashed funding.</blockquote> Dec 3, 2018, Vox - <b>We have a new worst-case scenario for Obamacare</b> <i>The Trump administration is tampering with the ACA - again.</i> <blockquote>A critical part of the Affordable Care Act’s design is that people can use the law’s financial assistance only to purchase insurance plans that comply with the law’s requirements for preexisting conditions and benefits. The Trump administration, under new guidance released last week, would allow states to dissolve that link. Republicans have been fixated on loosening those federal rules, and this latest revision demolishes that key guardrail embedded in Obamacare.</blockquote>

That would be the equivalent of a job that pays more than $28 an hour. Lots of folks wish they were so lucky.

          Gladys: Trailblazer, Midwife, and Feminist in Sierra Leone      Cache   Translate Page      
Photo by Jon Lascher / Partners In Health Boyama Gladys Katingor stands outside Wellbody Clinic in Kono, Sierra Leone, where she has served as the head midwife since 2014.

Walking around her clinic in the muggy heat, Gladys, 52, attracts a lot of attention. During the morning’s whirlwind of activity, people rush up to her from every direction: uniformed-midwives, women with newborn babies strapped to their backs, heavily pregnant women. She speaks to everyone in a gentle, encouraging tone and goes out of her way to offer advice wherever possible. This is how Gladys starts most of her days as head midwife at Wellbody Clinic in Kono, Sierra Leone.

“I’m always on my feet, educating my staff, and saying, ‘Let’s not let any danger occur to our patients,’” says Gladys.

Known as Gladys to friends and colleagues, Boyama Gladys Katingor joined Wellbody, a Partners In Health-supported clinic, in 2014, and has since been trail-blazing female empowerment. At the clinic, Gladys strives to standardize a modern approach to women’s health care. And in doing so, she tackles a number of universally debated and politically charged issues—including teenage pregnancy, abortion, and female genital mutilation—by listening, loving, and, when necessary, lecturing.

Regina Korgbendeh, a traditional birth attendant at Wellbody, reflects fondly on Gladys’s approach to leadership. “There are often many people present during a woman’s delivery—from midwives to traditional birth attendants to family members,” she says. “Gladys will say firmly to the room, ‘Let us all work in harmony to keep this woman safe.’ She’s always calm, supportive, and strong.”

Gladys grew up in Longie village, roughly 30 miles from Koidu, Kono District’s capital. She is one of the few girls from her village cohort to complete her education. Following high school, Gladys trained as a community nurse for the nonprofit organization, International Rescue Committee. Her role with IRC involved coaching new mothers on how to administer basic medicines, such as anti-malarials and tuberculosis medication, to their families. After gaining significant experience there, Gladys made the decision to resume her studies and train as a midwife, leading to her current role with PIH.

Sierra Leone had the seventh highest rate of teenage pregnancy in the world, with 38 percent of women delivering their first baby before the age of 18. At Wellbody, expectant mothers under the age of 18 are invited to stay at a birth waiting home for the month preceding their labor. Here, they receive free prenatal care and meals, and enjoy a supportive environment.

“Most of these are school-going children. The girls are very shy when they arrive and feel like they’ve committed a crime,” says Gladys. “I bring them closer to me, like a mother, and ask them how they are feeling.”

Postnatal classes are also available at Wellbody following a birth, and Gladys makes sure new mothers are supported in a number of ways, including through family planning services.

“We offer approved contraceptive methods, but many women are discouraged from using them by their families,” Gladys says. “Everyone is happy to listen though, especially the young girls, and we’re now seeing an uptake.”

Abortion is another tough reality Gladys confronts. They are illegal, but not uncommon, in Sierra Leone. “They’re performed on girls in villages who come to Wellbody Clinic afterwards in very bad health,” she says. Many even face death. One-fifth of global maternal deaths result from unsafe abortions, and Sierra Leone is no exception. Gladys quickly refers them to the local hospital. 

Perhaps the most challenging, and familiar, situation Gladys deals with is female genital mutilation, or FGM, a procedure commonly carried-out on adolescents. In Africa, around 3 million girls undergo FGM each year; Sierra Leone is one of the only countries where the rate is over 90 percent.

FGM often takes place in a small hut, in an area known as “the bush,” on the outskirts of a village. Multiple girls will stay in the hut at any one time, while the procedure is performed on each of them.

“When I was a child, I became part of this. It was not my choice, but something my parents wanted. It was an excruciating procedure,” Gladys recalls. “When the cut is done, veins are tampered with, and you can sometimes bleed a lot. If you bleed like this, which I did, the whole village will call you a witch. It feels horrible to be called that.”

What should a girl do if she’s encouraged to go through FGM? “If a girl confides in me at Wellbody, I will tell her of the hazards and advise her against having it done,” Gladys says.

Her advice can’t always be headed, but her overall message to female patients and staff is hard to ignore. “I tell them, whatever happens you must reach some heights. Whatever your family says, keep going. I say don’t lie down, wakeup and keep moving. You are not just here to give birth; you are our leaders of tomorrow.”

          The Planned Replica of Trump's Wall by WSU College Republicans Shows That the Stupidity of the Idea Is the Idea      Cache   Translate Page

Washington State University College Republicans want to build "an 8-foot mockup of a border wall on the Pullman campus" for some kind of demonstration. Why is this at all interesting or post-worthy? Because it reveals that the wall (or that "fucken" wall) is not about keeping brown people out of the US. The fact is everyone, from the right to the left, knows the whole idea of the wall is nothing but stupid, and if realized, would be a complete waste of time and resources. So, no mystery here. Only a few US citizens really believe they will sleep better if the fucken wall is funded and erected.

But then we must ask ourselves: Why is there so much talk about this wall? The College Republican students' planned replica provides an answer just like that. It's not beloved by the right or Trump's followers because it makes any sense. It is beloved precisely because it is one of the stupidest ideas out there. And I say this not in mockery of the students, but with a sense of understanding. They know very well that stupidity is the only political tool their party can (and must) use. Again, do not consider this an insult. It is a fact, and a crippling one.

The GOP of our times, which is a bit different from those of, say, the recently dead G H.W. Bush (and with his death, precisely what was buried at the Presidential Library and Museum in Texas), has completely given up the idea that it represents anything that makes any sense. The economics of tax cuts and trickle down (or voodoo economics, as Bush once called it) is bogus, weak guns laws are irrational, promoting the deregulation of the financial sector is just plain nuts (the crash of 2008 made that abundantly clear to the suburbs—the political consequences of this elucidation were vividly expressed in the 2018 midterm elections). Even the arguments against universal health care make no deep or practical economic sense.

So, if little to nothing in your entire political program adds up, and there is daily growing evidence that it does more economic and social damage than good, what is left but to support Trump's wall (and all the other nonsense that pops in his head or out of his mouth)? This is one of the many important points made in a new book, Like a Thief in Broad Daylight, by the leading (or most-popular) philosopher of our times, Slavoj Žižek. He suggests in his book's second chapter that it's wrong to believe that US Christian fundamentalists support Trump—with his porn stars, pee tape, and pussy grabbing—simply because of a long-term plan to overturn Roe v. Wade. What fundamentalists understand at a deep level is that the abortion argument has not had legs to stand on for a very long time. And so, it's not a matter of arguing logically or democratically with, say, Lindy West—a public figure who would demolish you and your points very easily. No. It is simply effective to confront her and other supporters of the #shoutyourabortion movement with the utter nonsense of a pussy grabber. This is the Lord's new work.

So what is left for the right? Embracing, not arguments that have a chance, but those that do not. This kills any illusion of a debate. There is only one side arguing. In the past, there used to be two, with the second maintaining a semblance of an argument. A species of that commitment to semblance was buried in Texas this week. It's now almost extinct. And it is here we must appreciate the political significance of Trump's stupidity. It's not a plan. It's an act of survival.

The wall, like raking forests to solve the climate crisis, is celebrated by the right because, unlike defending, say, the deregulation of banks (an argument that claims to have intellectual respectability, as it is supported by thousands of economics professors and commentators), it doesn't have even a semblance of intelligence. It's a nonstarter. The wall's function is not to end or stem an immigration crisis, but, as the Republican students of WSU put it, to “own the libs mercilessly.”

And how do you own liberals? Not with anything that even has a hint of respectability or plausibility. That's a recipe for disaster. You do it by confronting leftist rationality (or even just plain common sense) with ideas and programs and plans that make no sense at all, that cannot even be debated, that are bluntly, loudly stupid. This is how you "own" the opposition.

          Deregulation Can Revive 3% Economic Growth      Cache   Translate Page      



(p. A17) Growth deniers are declaring that America's economy has lost its ability to grow at 3% above inflation. If that's the case, maybe we should go back to where we lost 3% growth and retrace our steps until we find it. For only with 3% or higher growth does America experience measurable progress in poverty reduction, strong job creation and income growth. If 3% growth is irretrievably lost, so is the American Dream.

Did America actually experience 3% real growth to start with? Yes. In the postwar era, the U.S. averaged 3.4% annual growth from 1948 through 2008. We averaged 3% growth for half of the George W. Bush presidency (2003-06). From 2009-12, the Obama administration, the Congressional Budget Office and the Federal Reserve all thought they saw 3% growth just around the corner. If the possibility of 3% growth is gone forever, it hasn't been gone very long.


. . .


While Obama apologists like to claim that labor-productivity and labor-supply factors preclude 3% growth, most of the growth constraints we face today are directly attributable to Mr. Obama's policies.


. . .


A tidal wave of new rules and regulations across health care, financial services, energy and manufacturing forced companies to spend billions on new capital and labor that served government and not consumers. Banks hired compliance officers rather than loan officers. Energy companies spent billions on environmental compliance costs, and none of it produced energy more cheaply or abundantly. Health-insurance premiums skyrocketed but with no additional benefit to the vast majority of covered workers.

In a world of higher costs, productivity plummeted. Productivity measures the production of things the market values that flow from the employment of labor and capital. Try listing the Obama-era regulatory requirements that generated the employment of labor and capital in ways that actually produced something you buy.


. . .


Bad policies--not bad luck or a loss of God's favor--have driven down labor productivity and the labor supply. We can change those policies.


. . .


With 3% growth, the American dream is achievable and virtually anybody willing to work hard can live it. Let 3% growth die and a lot of what we love most about our country will die with it.



For the full commentary, see:

Phil Gramm and Michael Solon. "Finding America's Lost 3% Growth; If the country can't grow like it once did, then the American Dream really is irretrievably lost." The Wall Street Journal (Monday, Sept. 11, 2017): A17.
