Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
In 1971 the soon-to-be Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell warned the business community that the New Left was anti-business and was going to take the country down an anti-business path. He recommended an intellectual and political campaign to respond to that threat. From his clarion call, think tanks were created, publicity circulated and in many ways the ground was laid or at least fertilized for the eventual election of Ronald Reagan and the political ascendancy of conservatism.

PRIVATE RIGHTS AND PUBLIC FIGHTS
With an expanded eight-week season, this year Action Speaks looks at moments when the rights of the individual have clashed with the needs or beliefs of the public-and where the line between private and public has been defined or blurred.
Host Marc Levitt and a trio of knowledgeable panelists explore contemporary issues through the lens of history by using underappreciated moments of the twentieth-century.
