It's been a week that truly challenged New England exceptionalism. Highway and courtroom standoffs with an extremist group who are challenging the authority of our legal system, and our collective believe that extremism is something happens elsewhere.

Those arrested not only reject our sovereignty, but call our legal system unfair.

Plus, a Trump-era Republican asks Massachusetts to make him governor, and the Delta variant puts New England's vaccination success to the test.

We take listener calls with Renee Graham, a Boston Globe columnist and a WBUR contributor, and Tom Nichols, a professor of national security affairs at the US Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island and a contributing writer at The Atlantic.

This segment aired on July 9, 2021.
