"Hey everybody! The ultimate issues hour every Tuesday. I was going to say Thursday. Why did I say Thursday? I will be in St. Louis Thursday broadcasting from St. Louis. I can't go two weeks without flying somewhere. Next week, New York. I have no idea what will happen when I speak at Columbia University. No idea. No idea how many students will show up. But it's worth it. I'm also going to be speaking for Eric Metaxas, one of my favorite people, at his Socrates in the City series. My topic today on the ultimate issues hour is my column, because my column comes out Tuesdays just as the ultimate issues hour does. It's titled, American Jews who worked for a secular America made a fatal error. Again, American Jews who worked for a secular America made a fatal error. Or another way of titling it is, when America was more Christian, Jews were more secure. Should I have titled it that way? Which title do you like more? The second one. You like the second one. Yeah. Well, what are you going to do? That's what happens in life. You look back and go, I should have said X. I should have said Y. Since World War II, most American Jews have believed that the more secular American society is the more secure their status. This has been, as I have argued all of my life, a colossal error. Indeed, it may turn out to be a fatal error. With the outburst of unprecedented levels of anti-Semitism, American Jews are living the famous warning, beware what you wish for, you just may get it. The primary reason American Jews have lived in the most Jew-friendly, even Jew-honoring country in history is that most Americans have been Christian. But we must make a key distinction here. American Christians have been not just Christian as Europe was, but Judeo-Christian. Nearly all the American founders were either traditional Christians, i.e. believers in the Christian Trinity, or believers in God, but not in the Trinity. Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin fall into this latter category, but almost to a man the founders were Judeo-philes. Indeed, Jefferson and Franklin wanted the seal of the new United States to depict the Jews leaving Egypt. In an 1808 letter, John Adams wrote about the Jews. They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this earth. The Romans and their empire were but a bauble in comparison of the Jews. They have given religion to three-quarters of the globe and have influenced the affairs of mankind more and more happily than any other nation, ancient or modern. I will insist the Hebrews have contributed more to civilized men than any other nation. If I were an atheist and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that faith had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations. It wasn't just the founders who appreciated the Jews' contribution to the formation of the great concepts of Western civilization. Mark Twain, who though not a religious man, was raised in a religious Protestant home, wrote in 1899 in an essay in Harper's Magazine concerning the Jews.
A highlight from LGM Podcast: Citizens of a Stolen Land
"In the course of an entire graduate training, I was introduced to maybe two or three books in Native American history, and I studied the 19th century United States. That's stunning. This is the Lawyers, Guns, and Money podcast. Hello, and welcome to the Lawyers, Guns, and Money podcast. This is Eric Loomis, and today we're very, happy to have Stephen Kantrovitz with us. He is a professor of history at the University of Wisconsin, and he's the author of three main books, all of which I think are fantastic, and which all of you should read, that have kind of defined a pretty lengthy career now in mid to late 19th century American history. The first was Ben Tillman and the Reconstruction of White Supremacy that came out in 2000, and if you thought Ben Tillman was a terrible person before, you will find out even more about that. And then there was More Than Freedom, Fighting for Black Citizenship in a White Republic, 1829 to 1899, which I just really love. But we're talking about his latest book, which came out earlier this year, Citizens of Stolen Land, a Ho -Chunk History of the 19th Century United States. It's published by the University of North Carolina Press, and I very strongly encourage all of you to buy it. Steve, thanks for joining us today. It's great to be here. Would you talk about the book, give our readers kind of an overview of how you came to this topic, and what you, in a minute or two, would like a reader to take from this? Sure. This book concerns the struggles of the Ho -Chunk people, whose homeland encompasses a lot of what's today Wisconsin and a lot more, and their encounter with the United States, its settlers, its government, its armies, mainly in the mid -19th century. And it's a story, in some ways, a familiar story of conflict and dispossession and exile and banishment. But it's also a story of persistence, endurance, return, and their continued residence on their ancestral homeland, despite the fact that they had no treaty claim or other claim to that land after 1837. So it's a pretty remarkable story of a people's determination to remain in a place. It's also a story about the implications of that history for the way we think about and understand American citizenship. So it's kind of a through -the -looking -glass story for people who are not well versed in Native American history, but who think they know something about American citizenship, because Native citizenship, as imagined by the federal government, is primarily a means of detribalization and land -taking. But in this instance, the Ho -Chunk are able to leverage a combination of their own desire to remain in Wisconsin, their ability to understand the incoherence at the core of the federal project of civilization, and the very hazy language around their status under the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, and put those things together and completely thwart the final act of the federal government in the 1870s in its final attempt to remove them from Wisconsin and banish them to Nebraska. So it's a story that kind of upends a conventional narrative of citizenship, especially for readers who think they understand the Civil War era history of that pretty well.
A highlight from Jung vs. Freud
"Hi, my name is Markus, and this is a companion podcast for the C .G. Jung Help Desk Meetup Group. I host live events on Zoom every two weeks about the concepts and ideas of the Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung. Every event I give a presentation about Jungian concept, so have fun with this event's topic. All right, good evening to you, everyone, and I want to talk today about a special topic for you, because when Jung is mentioned, very often Freud is also mentioned, not only because they lived at the same time, but because they also work together. And just to put a little bit into a reference frame, there's a way to structure Jung's life into certain blocks, and his life's work pretty much follows his own life, and that can be these blocks very neatly distinguished. And the first block in his life is a psychoanalytic block, where Jung was a professor and also taught about psychoanalysis he practiced. He worked with Freud very closely together, and this is in the first part till age 39. This is the other part, the next one following, which is the part that most people know, with the archetypes, the collective unconscious, anima, animus, where he explores and develops his ideas there. And the last part is a chemical part where many people don't go, but where he also talks about ions and synchronicity. So his ideas become more and more all -compassing and complex to get into, and the very beginning is the psychoanalysis part, which is personal because it's around patients. So what I will talk about will be very much colored by Jung's view on Freud. There's the collective works for those who have it or want to have it. There's the fourth book, I have it here in German, it's called Freud and Psychoanalysis. It's a neat little book because it really focuses on this topic of Freud and psychoanalysis. When was Jung thinking about how to structure his collective works and his life's work, his first impulse was to say, okay, when people should read me, they should read me in chronological sequence, because then people can see, okay, what developed after what. And on a certain point of view, it makes sense. On the other, Jung talks about so many different things, his whole life, that it's better to bundle these things. And this book is also a bundling. So here you have within one volume, his very beginning views on psychoanalysis, where he is basically sending fan letters to Freud and he's helping him fight against critics, then coming good friend of him, and then later changing his view. So it's a book that's spending decades of Jung's personal development and his life and his views on psychoanalysis. But it's not only that which I read, I also read The Interpretation of Dreams by Freud. And I read an introduction into Psychoanalysis also by Freud. Freud is a little bit easier to read because that's not so much. Freud did not write so many things. And he was more of a guy who would rewrite things, not for the topics, but rather he would expand and refine it a little bit. And you really notice it when you read The Interpretation of Dreams, which came out in 1899, and he would publish revisions of that the next 10, 20 years. And it's a very well -structured book, so you really get the feeling that somebody invested a lot of time in there. But because Jung was such a close friend of Freud, I guess he also has a lot of unique insights not on only Freud's theories, but also his personality, how he was privately. I will just talk a little bit about Jung's life and how he came into contact with Freud and how their friendship started. So when Jung had to decide what to study, he was unsure what to do, and he was thinking about doing archaeology because he was very interested in the past passion that stick with him his whole life, or whether he should go into medicine. And this was something that troubled him a lot because he knew he wanted to study, and he wanted to study in Wasser, but it was a dream that finally convinced him what to do, that he should pursue the path of medicine. And there he got into contact with psychology as a field. And back then, this is around 1900, psychology was a completely new field. It was the newest science. It was the bleeding edge, like the Silicon Valley, IT startup, crypto space of, okay, we are now exploring a new realm of the world and nothing is really clear. It's really like discovering a new continent. And he uses that metaphor very often. So there's a clear distinction between the world before psychology and after psychology, the discovery of the psyche. And one very clear distinction is that how patients were treated. So when somebody would have psychological problems, the going theory was that they had brain damage. When somebody has brain damage, there's basically nothing you can do. And so they would just put the people somewhere just to store them like furniture, wait until they would die someday. But there was not really an attempt to treat them or really a successful way to treat them. Jung grew up in that atmosphere where this was a change of, okay, there might be something more to the patients than just the problems and the symptoms that they have. And he would be very involved also in analyzing the brains of people who had died that had problems. And he could not find any statistical relevant damage of the brains that you could say, okay, this part is rotten. This is why the person cannot live normally. So he got very suspicious about the orthodoxy back then. He would start doing his own experiments. So he would study medicine. He would study psychology. He would start working in Buchholzli, which was a psychiatric institution in Switzerland. He would start to design his own experiments to get his own data about delving into the psyche of people. And the method that he's invented is called the association test. And the association test works in the way that you give people a word, for example, family, a house, child, money. And you would try to get the reaction. So the idea is the patient is just giving word, word, word, word, word as a stimulus, and they would give back the reaction. And of course, the word would be noted that the patient said, but also the time that it took the patient to say the word. And he worked on that for a very long time and got some really interesting results. This was this investigation into the psyche because there was a certain phenomena that people normally they would get into a kind of groove and they would say a reaction within a certain time frame, very short seconds. But sometimes when he would say a word, there would be a long pause and sometimes the patients would even forget the word and they would give some reaction, but very often delayed. It's a smart thing that Jung did was to make the same test again, same words, same order. But very often the patients, the word that they said that was so delayed that came where the answer came very late, they used a different word. So everything was the same, but then they used something else or he would point out, oh, you said that word and they could not remember. And this made him suspicious that there would be something in the psyche acting outside of the willful control of the person, that the person was not aware what the person would say, that they would trigger something happening in the background that would be distracting and autonomous. And back then, there wasn't really a word of that. And the word came through Freud. And this was the unconscious that there's background processes happening that we are not aware of, but they're influencing our life. Jung was doing these experiments already for a pretty long time. And was following the literature of all the people who would publish about the topics. And he said, Freud was the first person who could come up with something as a concept, a concept of the mind that would explain the empirical findings of Jung. And of course, Jung was immediately a huge fan of Freud. And he would write all these letters to him and he would argue with people about psychoanalysis and he would become very well versed in psychoanalysis. And finally, he had the chance to meet Freud for the first time that they met. They spoke for 13 hours straight. They just talked and talked and talked and talked for 13 hours. And this was the beginning of the friendship. Jung back then was in his mid 30s, early 30s, rather, and Freud was 20 years older. He was in his 50s. So there was this age difference and also this difference, a little bit of who is, let's say, well -known or who is hyped right now. And Freud was very popular back then because of his book of the interpretation of dreams and his ideas of psychoanalysis and the unconscious, especially in Europe. Interestingly, the ideas and methods of Jung became very popular in the US. So they traveled also around, also to the US. And there Jung was more well -known and popular than Freud back then. But this was a shift over time. So they became incredibly close. They wrote a lot in regards to letters to each other. They would analyze each other's dreams. So it was really Freud's hope and idea that Jung, because he was 20 years younger, could take over the scepter and bring psychoanalysis into the world. Because Freud had a little bit of a chip on his shoulder. He had to convince the world of something which is very hard to understand and to believe, to say, okay, you're not the Lord in your own house. And to say, okay, there is all these forces inside you and you need to deal with them. And there's also outside help necessary to do this. As they work together, Jung himself said he followed Freud, also like a father figure, not only because of the age, but also Jung was a little bit disillusioned with his own father, who died pretty young in Jung's life. And there was this teacher -student dynamic happening there. Even though that Jung, as I said, he was established, he published his own papers, did his own research. He was already a doctor, a professor, teaching. But this is the part that many people know when you talk about Jung and Freud, when they say, oh yeah, it's a pupil of Freud. But that's not completely correct. This is how they showed up. But Jung was established as a psychologist and as a therapist all on his own. But over the years, Jung realized that there are some differences in worldview and understanding that he thought of Freud's idea as a little bit restricting and simple in certain regards. Jung was always very interested in the occult, the spiritual, religious, and Freud would have nothing of that. He would be not interested in that at all because he saw himself really as a fighter who could not deviate from his idea about psychoanalysis and libido as source of psychic functioning. He did not want to have any strange ideas in there that could distract from the ideas of psychoanalysis. But this was something that was gnawing on Jung and it got only worse with time. As I said before, they were analyzing each other's dreams, but with time they would start hiding their dreams from each other. One started with Freud who said, okay, I had a dream, but I did not want to talk with you about it because I felt it would undermine my authority. And this is when Jung got suspicious. And Jung also had a specific dream about a house which not only had a cellar, but multiple cellars where you could travel back in time where it was the 1800s and the 1000s, then ancient Rome and in final, like in the Underfall cave. And there he already had the feeling, I cannot tell this dream to Freud because he would interpret these things into there. So they were already living apart a bit. The relationship ended after roughly six and seven years in a very dramatic way. Doctors and professors and friendships by writing a book. And Jung wrote a book called Similes of Transformation. It's the fifth book of the collective works. The original title was a little bit different, but the modern name is Similes of Transformation. And it had all the stuff in it that Freud did not want to talk about. It was about religion, mythology, spirituality, and all those things. And he sent it to Freud and he only got a letter back that said something like, okay, seems like you want to do your own thing now. It's a quote for me. But what it meant was the end of their friendship, but also of Jung's career. And he knew this. So his academic career was done. He was tightly associated with Freud. Freud was at that time very powerful and he cut Jung just completely off. So Jung could not teach anymore and he withdrew. He still had his private practice, but he knew that his career that he worked for, basically his whole life was with that over. But he had the feeling that there was the right thing to do. And if you think about it, the things that everybody knows about Jung, the collective unconscious, the archetypes, but also ions or the views on alchemy, all this came afterwards. Before it was Jung the psychoanalyst, but afterwards it became Jung the phenomenon. That is the reason why we still talk about him now. And interestingly, in the collective works, the first four books are about this block in Jung's life, about his work in psychoanalysis. And this is a block where I think it's the least read part, but it is highly, highly interesting to understand Jung and where he's coming from. And this is also why I wanted to talk about this, to have the background to understand that. So to give an introduction into Freud and psychoanalysis, as I said, it's a easier way to do it. You have to think of yourself as the ego, the person which is experiencing things with the it, under it, where you have all the primal forces and instincts that are trying to act on the ego. And you have the superego, which is the rules of society and the laws, how you were educated as a child, and they act like a selector. And they say, oh, this is a good instinct to have. This is not a good instinct to have. Oh, this is not appropriate now. And everything that gets discarded gets discarded into the unconscious. So the Freudian idea is that the unconscious is like a waste basket where you have a lot of things that can accumulate there. And if you discard the wrong things or discard the right things, this can create trouble in the psyche of the person and prevent the ego from working normally. These things in the unconscious are complexes that can cause neurosis or hysteria, which brings the person to act in strange ways. But through talking with the patient, through these problems, to take the things from the waste basket and bring them to life, there's a way to heal the person of the complexes of the hysteria and make them functioning normally again, that they're part of society, part of life. And this was a revolutionary thing. As I mentioned before, the idea was, oh, your damaged goods says nothing you can do. And the idea from Freud is, and this is why it's called the talking cure, you can talk with people through their problems and you can heal them. And not only in their psyche, but also bodily, that there are certain symptoms that disappear when you help people working through their problems. And talking about the things that are in the unconscious, you would often use hypnosis. So this was a tool which was not really used back then before. But he would hypnotize the patients or try to hypnotize them to open up the unconscious to bring out these very dark contents, because these are contents that were not approved of from the parents of the patient, of society. And the complexes that Freud saw in this waste basket, they were very often associated with the parents, with the mother, with the father. And he said, the main drive of it is the beetle is sexuality, the sexual drive. And this sexual drive needs to be steered in the correct direction. And he said, the natural way how this beetle normally flows is towards the mother, sexuality towards the mother or towards the father. But this is frowned upon by society. So it goes into the waste basket, but it should not be in the waste basket. It should be used differently. So the idea of Freudian psychology is to say, okay, you have to find your mother in a partner or you have to find your father in a job to hear this energy in a productive outward direction, not inward towards the family, but outward to the world. So this is called the incest complex that is blocking the patient and living their own life. And he compares this to an infantilization that people are still like a child. So even though they should grow up. For this, he also used dream interpretation. And this is one of the other things that Freud brought back into the modern world to use dreams as a diagnostic tool. So this was lost for hundreds, thousands of years because dreams are a little bit of individual revelation, which is a big no -no in Christianity, but had a higher value in ancient like societies Roman societies, Greek societies, and earlier Egyptian societies. So he rediscovered that and he established that as a valid diagnostic tool. And this is, should you read the interpretation of dreams, you would find it there that he's very meticulous and takes it incredibly serious and has a lot of concepts there that you can even try yourself and you can find out, okay, yeah, Mr. Freud wrote over a hundred years ago, you can find in your own dreams. This is interesting, really interesting.

I'm Josh, and there's Chuck, and Jerry's here too, and this is Stuff You Should Know, the We're All Melting Edition. Yeah, I'm just a, just a migrating fern. Oh, that's a good one to be. Blowing through the forest, looking for a new home. Sure. I'm a spore. What happens when you get there, spore? Well, I'll probably grow into a beautiful new fern, because ferns are pretty hardy. That's awesome, and I'll bet you'll contribute to society in all sorts of beneficial ways that ferns that were already there couldn't necessarily do. I hope so. There is fern stuff in here, and I have a wonderful fern scene at my camp. On the other side of the feeder creek that goes into the main creek, I call it, I even have a sign that says Fern Forest, and it's a forest of ferns. It's quite lovely. God knows where they're from, because those things can travel quite a bit, as we'll see. Yeah, they could be from, from, from Alabama. Easily. I'm not kidding. Easily, man. I've got a stat that's gonna blow your mind in a second. Oh, boy. Actually, I'll just bust it out now. You ready? Yeah, yeah. How far can a fern travel? A fern can travel, the Tasmanian tree fern in particular, can send its spores 500 to 800 kilometers. That's 300 to 500 miles from the mother plant. And, get this, a single frond, a frond, produces more than 750 million of those spores. So you can understand that ferns, I mean, you find ferns everywhere. They're really hardy. They can actually survive cold, colder temperatures than you would think. They also thrive in the tropics. They're like a really great pioneer plant. They usually are among the first large plants that show up in a, like, a newly cleared part of Earth, right? This all makes sense then. Okay, so what we're talking about then is that those ferns that showed up in this new place and said, hey, let's get this, let's get this biosphere going again. Let's get this biome back into shape after this wildfire or something like that. Or there was like a stampede because there was a really great ice cream truck that drove through one of those two. Those ferns have migrated. They came from Tasmania, apparently, all the way to wherever the ice cream truck was, and now they're there. And so they actually moved in that sense, which is really surprising because plants are what are known as sessile organisms. They don't move from place to place individually as organisms, but as a species, they can actually move around like inchworms. Pretty, pretty good. Yeah, it's pretty cool. I didn't really know much about this. We're talking about plant migration and the idea, well, not idea, the very real fact that just like humans and animals will go to more hospitable climbs as the climate may change or just, I don't know, just to seek a better place to be. Plants and trees and things on mass do the same thing. Yeah, and there's all sorts of ways that they do that, too. So they do it by dispersing their seeds or their spores in that case, fern spores or single -celled organisms. They're not like a seed technically, but they do the same thing, right? They show up in a place and set up shop and they start rocking out. Yeah, that's right. And ferns, you know, it depends and we'll get all into this stuff, but how fast this happens depends on different factors. How far these plants can migrate depends on different factors. Why this is happening is generally climate change and plants and trees and things are generally moving north or up in elevation if they hit mountains. Or south in the southern hemisphere. Exactly. So this is sort of the general pattern. And we mentioned ferns because, like you said, those spores can really haul. Ferns also mature very quickly and, you know, the wind can just, that's why I got a fern forest at my camp, probably. Yeah, so they check both of the boxes that you need to be a fast migrating plant species. They produce seeds or spores at a very young age and their seed or spore can travel very far distances, right? Right. So they can move around. And also it doesn't hurt that, like I said, ferns are adaptable. The trees and other plants don't move quite so fast, but they move, especially if you look at the fossil record, a lot faster than they actually should. So if you pay attention to a single organism, say an oak, those acorns don't travel terribly far. They may get a little further away from the drip line if a squirrel happens to bury it somewhere and a new oak tree grows. I think it was Anders Sandberg who described acorns as solar powered factories for producing more oak trees. Whoa, whoa, Andy Sandberg said that? No, Anders Sandberg. Oh, OK. He's a philosopher at Oxford. That makes a lot more sense. Yeah, yeah. Andy Sandberg, he ate his lime accidentally in his Corona bottle. That's what he's got. You know who he's married to? Uh, Patricia Arquette. No, it's not a bad guess. You've been guessing Patricia Arquette for a lot of things lately, I feel like. Have I? He's married to, yeah, I feel like that's come up before recently, maybe, I don't know. Her name just rolls off the tongue. I know, a big fan of hers. He is married to, what's her name, Joanna Newsome, the singer and harpist. Oh, neat. And if you like, if you're into architecture and homes, you should seek out, I don't know if it was Architectural Digest or something, but someone did a spread on their home and it is really something else. OK, so that's Andy Sandberg hour that we just checked out. A quick detour. Wait, wait, I wasn't done. Oh, no, go ahead. So if you look at an individual tree, an oak tree, those acorns don't go particularly far away from the tree, as the old saying goes. But the fact that they do fall away from the tree means that very slowly, some of those seedlings are going to grow up a little more northward or a little more southward than its mother plant. And very, very slowly, the whole group of oaks can move southward or northward, right? Over hundreds and thousands and tens of thousands of years. So long. The thing is, if you look at the fossil record, they move way faster than that, than they should. And there is actually a paradox that was named by a guy named Clement Reed, right? Reed's paradox. Yeah, he's got a great, great title for it. Of Rapid Plant Migration. That's the full title. It sounds almost like snake oil from the 19th century. Yeah, it kind of does. So what is it? Oh, OK, I didn't ever set me up. We're still tight after all these years. For sure. So what he found from the fossil record, like you were talking about, and as we'll see, that's one pretty good way to study this stuff, especially pollen fossils, right? Yeah, because they're so hardy. Yeah, so he saw that trees were migrating a lot faster than the rate that you would think. And so those oaks, I think, was one example you gave on the British Isles after the last glacial period over a span of like 10 ,000 years or so. They traveled about 600 miles and it would normally take about a million years. If the seeds were just dispersed in a typical way. But what he figured was that what may be happening here is like some weird weather event happens that sent things much farther than usual or like some deer or something eats something and then poops out something really far away from where it started. And so all of a sudden this animal has spread it via their poo poo. Right, and this is how like large scale migration happens or I should say rapid migration over long distances, right? Right, yeah. It's the unusual, not just the acorn falling and hitting the ground, it's not just gravity assisted, it's animal assisted, which is called zucory or it's wind assisted, which is called anemocory or water assisted, which is called hydrocory. And that's just the way that some plants disperse their seeds. That's kind of on top of the normal way they disperse it, which is just dropping it from their leaves or the spores blowing on the wind, which I guess is one type of cori. So like if a squirrel loaded up its mouth full of things and somehow found its way into your camper as you set off for Arizona. That would be a freak event, sure. It probably wouldn't be en masse, but you know, that's a way a tree could move. All it takes is that one oak to make it, to just survive, and then it starts its own new part of the range. Yeah, absolutely. And we all should point out, when was Reid doing this? This is a while ago, like 100 plus years ago, right? Yeah, he was a geologist, I don't know if we said, but Reid's paradox of rapid plant migration came out in 1899 and it was a smash hit. Yeah, so people, I mean, for at least that long, science has been sort of curious about this migration happening at a rate that they would not expect. Right. The thing is, is it's really hard when you throw in the X factor to calculate how fast an actual species can migrate. And there's a few ways that you can study that kind of thing. One, as you said, is studying the fossil record, which is super helpful. But it's not showing you what's going on contemporaneously or within the last couple decades. This is 10 ,000, a million years ago, something like that, right? Yeah. So if you wanted to study something a little closer to home timeline, timeline wise, you would maybe set up what's called a permanent vegetation plot. You would just, you would mark off an area and you would go back there, you know, every so often, like every six months or every year or so, and just sort of chart what's I think they've been doing this for about 100 years since the 1920s. So we've got a pretty good data set there. Something else you could do is go somewhere like let's say you dug up some cool scientific journal from a scientist from, you know, 200 years ago that went and explored some island. And while they may not have like charted everything out exactly like you would in today's science, they may have a really nice diary about all the plant life there and things that they saw there and where it might be. And you could go back to that place. And it's not quite as tight of a record, but you could still get a pretty good idea of what's happening. Yeah, depending on whose journal you're working from. And back in 2012, a Danish team of scientists followed the record left by a 19th century geologist named Alexander von Humboldt from Germany, who was just an interesting dude in and of himself. He called coffee concentrated sunbeams. So he's my kind of guy. Oh, man, that's great. They went back to Chimborazo volcano in Ecuador, which Humboldt studied in detail. And not only did he study the vegetation there, and he classified all sorts of new plants that Europeans didn't know about at that point. He also noted exactly where they were on the mountain as far as the elevation went. Super helpful. Super helpful. So based on this information, the 2012 Danes were able to go back and recreate his trip. And then they were able to note what plants were where. And they found that everything, all species on average, had moved up the mountain by about an average of about 500 meters, which is significant. It's like almost a mile. It's like eight tenths of a mile. Yeah. Yeah, that's the average. Yeah. There was a lot of variation within that, but that's that's a long way for sure. And what we found out and I guess this comes up a little later, but a plant can find more climbs hospitable going up 500 meters than they might by going, let's just say north, like 90 to 100 miles. Yes. So like a much quicker road to better climbs if you just go up that mountain. For sure. Yeah, that's kind of two ways they move is longitudinally or altitudinally. You got to be in shape, though. Oh, for sure. You're going to climb that mountain.

"Oh, that would have been after the Chicago fire. So mid 18 60s. Really, to his death in 1869, he only lived 62 years. 1899, I'm sorry, not 1869, 1899. Yeah, it was 62 years. So he really goes, he went to Europe for the first time right before the Chicago fire. Kind of starts to get this itch that he wants to go and do missions work and do evangelism and do those kind of things. But I guess my question is how does he where was he born and how did he start out in life? Did he know that he wanted to be he did not in the ministry tell us his story? Yeah, so dio moody was born there in Northfield. We actually have we manage the birthplace where he was born. His father died when moody was about four years old. And so moody and some of his siblings had to drop out of school and work to make sure that the family could feed themselves. And so Dion moody's early life was really characterized by poverty and strife. It was a difficult upbringing. He was not Christian. They were not necessarily a Christian home. But one of the influences he had was a Unitarian universalist minister who was there in the town of Northfield. And this is the 1840s. This would have been early 1800s. In that range. So he ultimately will sort of set out for Boston to make his fortune. Dion moody always wanted to be rich because he grew up poor, and so he wanted to have that wealth. That stability that money can bring. And along the way he meets a gentleman and is converted to Christianity through Sunday school. And it's kind of a fascinating story from there. He begins working with the YMCA. Does a lot of work with the YMCA, the Sunday school movie. And is he a teenager in his 20s at this point? He would have been in his 20s, yeah. Right around in his 20s. I think he moved to Boston when he was 18 years old. And so yeah, he's in his 20s at this point, then the Civil War happens. He's kind of serving on both sides of the Civil War as a chaplain, trying to sort of serve administer two. Injured Civil War soldiers. Eventually makes his way to Chicago, and then that's where he starts to do, again, more work with the YMCA, but also establishes the Illinois state street church, which we now know as the moody church. And actually moody Bible institute came much later. It was the third school that DL moody founded. So after the Chicago fire, he kind of gets things settled there, knows he's going to set off an evangelistic efforts. And then moves back to Northfield as sort of a home base. While he's in Northfield, then he starts two schools, Northfield school for girls and Northfield mount hermon school for boys. And that's where his ministry really begins to center. And that becomes the sort of hub for everything he's going to do. So he goes out from Northfield to the world. Eventually, come back and found moody Bible institute. And he had this vibrant summer conference ministry that he ran in Northfield as well, built a 2300 seat auditorium in Northfield. I have spoken in that auditorium. It's fantastic. Yeah. And I think it holds more people than the population of the town even currently. So but he becomes a phenomenon. I mean, he becomes, you know, you said he's the Billy Graham of his time. I mean, he was basically everywhere. He was and the interesting thing about DO moody was that he recognized very quickly that if he needed to spread the gospel, he was going to need new vehicles to do it. So he continued to do the evangelistic campaigns, which were relatively common at the time. But then he also gets into low cost publishing. And starts what was called a coal portage association to provide biblically oriented materials to people who didn't have the money to purchase otherwise. That's extraordinary. So where does he end up? I mean, does he end up as an evangelist? Is he preaching around the world? I mean, it's hard to draw a bead on his life because he did so many things. Right. He was busy in his 62 years. And so what I would say is, yeah, I think the main thrust of his ministry was evangelism, but probably his more central work. There's a great line in one of the preface to his books that he titled to the work to the work. And he basically just says that in all of his travels abroad and serving administrator, what he's found is that arousing Christians their personal responsibility is a far greater work than the simple evangelist. And what he's trying to get out there is, listen, we all need to be doing this. This shouldn't just be about me. It shouldn't just be about one guy out there sharing the gospel. It needs to be the church together. And so when I think about DL moody, that quote really does sort of encapsulate him for me. I think he's a church builder. He wanted the body of Christ to be out there doing the job that they were supposed to be doing. And he built structures to sort of encourage that. And those would be the summer conferences and the educational institutions. Well, that's, in a sense, in my most recent book, called letter to the American church. That's at the heart of it, is this disconnect we have in the modern American church in particular. As though we don't really, we don't have much to do. I believe I'm done.

We're supposed to be utterly actively engaged in being the church, and so it's interesting to think that moody was dealing with that same thing. He said, evangelism, that's the beginning. That's step one you get saved. And then the rest of your life you're supposed to live it out. That's right. He talks a lot about developing Christian usefulness by which he meant surrendering our will to the lord and really following what he wanted us to do, setting aside our own agendas and following his agenda. And so he's very much concerned that the church do the work of the church. That's a big deal. I mean, that is just right where we are today, and you said he died young at age 62. I mean, of what did he die? Seems like a probably a heart related issue. Medicine wasn't that great. And so I don't know that they did an autopsy, but he actually was in Kansas City, doing a final campaign, and they brought him back to Northfield by train. He died in his home at Northfield and there's a fantastic piece in William revell is his son, William ravel moody. It recounts his dad's last hours. And Dion moody's on his deathbed and he's just divvying out responsibilities to his kids. When we come back, we will continue this conversation. I'm talking to doctor James Spencer, president of the DL moody center. You can go to moody's center dot org we'll be right back. Tell me why relief factor is so successful at lowering or eliminating pain. I'm often asked that question just the other night I was asked that question, well, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal, and I agree with them. And the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, and each one of them helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway. That's the point. So approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. If you've got back pain, shoulder, neck, hip, knee, or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it'll work for you..

"Somewhere between the grand river, which is east of Cleveland and that Detroit river. That leaves about two thirds of the south shore of Lake area around that two thirds, probably a quarter. Gave a pretty wide range of locations. Sandusky bay is probably the best natural harbor, certainly in the western basin. And it's surrounded on the north side by a pretty rocky shore and 24 islands out in the Lake. So there were a lot of things to hit. And what was sandusky bay known for that time? Actually, the town was so dusky, was then called Portsmouth. And I live in Portsmouth New Hampshire. I know you do. Yeah. Timber was being shipped out of this area, mostly for boat building. You know, had not started really the limestone quarrying at this point. But farming and those kinds of things were, you know, those goods were being shipped around. Of course, in 1825, the area canal opened. And suddenly, the markets from the Great Lakes became, you know, accessible on the east coast. So that was a big boom. Shortly after the lighthouse was built. So let's talk about some of the historic highlights of marblehead lighthouse. First of all, the height of the tower today is not the original height of the lighthouse. It's kind of out at 50 feet high about 25 feet in diameter at the base. It's all built a lot of native limestone that was quarried locally. There is a quarry in the park and we're trying to ascertain right now, whether that was the Corey that the limestone was carried from. We're going to plan on developing that a little bit next year and opening it up. So people can see what these early quarries look like, but had to be raised in height, so the light would be seen farther offshore, right? Because larger ships needed to. The water here is not very deep. Even off the lighthouse, if you go out a quarter mile, it's only about 20 feet deep. This is a very shallow end of the Lake. And, you know, as the shifts got larger, they had to move out beyond the islands on the light needed to be visible further out. And you got to raise the light to do that. So the lantern of the lighthouse where that was actually relocated from someplace else, the top section, the lantern section. In 1898, they decided to raise it by 15 feet. And even as robust as that limestone structure was the engineers didn't feel it would take the weight of the addition. So they actually built a brick liner inside the lighthouse and then raise that 15 feet above the stone. So it's actually two lighthouses and one. There is a place that you can see between the two, which is kind of strange. But we're not sure why they left that open. In 1899, I believe the presque isle light one is now called the land lighthouse was decommissioned actually for the second time..
