Two essays by Kenneth R. Conklin, Ph.D., are being published on May 1, 2016 in honor of Law Day which is celebrated throughout the U.S., and also Lei Day celebrated in Hawaii.
1. The Aloha Spirit. How aloha for all, manifested in the twin pillars of unity and equality, can overcome Hawaiian religious fascism which is the theological basis for a claim to racial supremacy.
2. Hawaiian religious fascism. A twisted version of a beautiful creation legend provides the theological basis for a claim that ethnic Hawaiians are entitled to racial supremacy in the governance and cultural life of the Hawaiian islands.
