Allen Jackson Describes His New Book 'Big Trouble Ahead'

"Pastor Allen Jackson. Welcome. Well, thank you, Eric. It's good to be with you. I'll pretend we're just acquaintances because I want this to be a hard hitting journalistic interview. I'm going to ask you the tough questions. This book is titled big trouble ahead, a real plan for flourishing in a time of fear and deception. One of the reasons that I like you and I like the book is because you tell it like it is. We are in a situation in this country, unlike anything we've seen in our lifetimes without any question, and that's what you talk about. So tell my audience effectively, essentially, what do you say in the book big trouble ahead? Well, big trouble ahead is really a play off the word tribulation, which is our biblical world. And tribulation just means big trouble. And I think there's a temptation amongst evangelicals, especially to leap ahead to think, is this the end of the world, because we're walking through this turmoil. And rather than answer that question, I try to acknowledge that we're in this season of tremendous confusion and disruption in realignment. And what do we do to flourish in the midst of that? I think it started with the pandemic in 2020. And we were told if we'd go home for two weeks, we could flatten the curve and return to normal. They lied. And so now we're more than two years later. And the turmoil is escalating. It's not diminishing. We've survived the virus. Such as it was. But we have violence in our streets and lawlessness on our borders and more deception and propaganda and censorship. I mean, you know the list. And we can't just click our heels together and want to go back to 2019. We have to decide what we do in this environment to make a difference for the kingdom of God. And that's what the book's about. How do we flourish in this season?

Bernie Sanders's Economic Advisor Wants to Keep Printing Money

"Is no shock that The New Yorker ran a piece, August 2019, titled The Economist who believes the government should just print more money. Stephanie kelton, a senior economic adviser to Bernie Sanders and Professor of economics and public policy at stony brook university, is popular in a way that economists almost definitionally are not. Filmmakers trail her with cameras. She goes on international speaking tours. And once it sold out a basketball arena in Italy, kelton is the foremost evangelist of a fringe economic movement called modern monetary theory, which argues in part that the government should pay for programs requiring big spending like the Green New Deal simply by printing more money. This is a polarizing idea. This spring at kelton spoke at The Wall Street Journal's future of everything festival on the day as a journal staffer introduced kelton as an economist with an idea that will either solve the world's problems or send it into ruin. She made a face and then walked on stage. So what exactly does she say? Well, adherents of MMT imagine a world built on MMT principles in which the government provides guaranteed jobs, healthcare affordable college, launches clean infrastructure projects to replace crumbling highways airports and bridges. Kelton, who does at least 5 interviews per week, plus lectures speaking gigs in conferences, is more than anyone else responsible for building MMT's digital army. So what exactly is MMT? Well, it means that we just spend money, and don't worry about it.

The IRS Is Going After the Little Guy

"So what is the IRS do then? You know, they might, they might audit a couple of millionaires and billionaires. And the millionaire is in billionaires will hold the line via the best law firms best accounting firms, drag it on maybe pay a small fine and that's it. But the IRS, they instead will go after targets where they know they can win. You see, data shows, according to the GAO, the government accountability office, who actually gets audited. Well, in the year 2019, out of the 600,000 audits that were conducted, 198,000 of them were people earning $1 to $25,000 a year. A 165,000 of them were people earning 25,000 to $200,000 a year. And then on down about 20,000 of them were people earning 200,000 and a half a million a year, about 10,000 were half a million to 5 million, and then less than a couple thousand were 5 million or more. Now, the argument the IRS will make at a surface is a good one. Well, there's just more people earning $1 to $25,000 and so therefore it might be cumulative more, but the percentage actually works out. Now this is rubbish for a very simple reason, which is when you earn when you are between one to 25,000, there should be an intentional campaign not to audit you. Now, I'm not a big one to talk about equity or about fairness or all that. Especially when it comes to racial stuff, which is garbage. But I will say this, it is deeply morally unfair. In fact, it is an abuse of government power. To have the federal government go after someone earning $36,000 a year who can not defend themselves against the IRS.

Aaron Withe Describes the Liberal Agenda of the Teachers' Unions

"They can't hide the fact that they're liberal agenda is all they're really about. Yeah, I mean, you look at both the teachers unions, the American federation of teachers and the national education association, both of them had their conventions last week. And as you mentioned, they weren't talking about how to educate our kids. They were talking about how to abolish the filibuster. They were talking about masking at kids and critical race theory and sex Ed in schools and all the rest of it. I mean, these institutions, these are liberal institutions today that have nothing to do with educating our children. Everything to do with indoctrinating our kids with some liberal talking points. We look back at the conventions back in 2019 at the national education association and on their platform then was critical race theory and defunding the police. You look free years later. These are the things that are actually being talked about in the Democratic Party. It's our belief that these teachers unions are not just the primary funders of liberal politicians, which they absolutely are, but they're also the thought leaders when it comes to creating liberal talking points and pushing a radical agenda.

Vivek Ramaswamy Discusses Biden's Failed Economic Policies

"Ramaswami. Welcome back to America first. Good to see you. How you doing? I'm doing well. It's been really hard to get you on the show. I think we've had president Trump on twice in the meantime trying to get you back on, but you're busy, man, because you've got a very, very important message. You got a new book coming out in September. You got a new company. We'll talk about all of that. But let's start at the beginning as somebody who is a proud capitalist and citizen, this language that we've been hearing at the moment out of this administration about the greedy greedy gas station owners. Why can't you just set it cheaper? Am I reading a little bit into it when I say this smacks of systems we've seen fail elsewhere be weak? I don't think you're reading too much into it at all. The only thing you might be missing is a bad understanding of how markets actually work that this president suffers. But what he forgets is that this is actually the direct product of their own policy agenda. I'll remind you that he said in September 2019, he made a campaign promise. The campaign promise was I guarantee you were going to end fossil fuels. That was the quote precisely. Well, guess what? That seems one campaign promise. He seems pretty intent on delivering on, cutting permits for drilling in, say, Alaska, over a million acres of land leases, canceled just in the last few months. You have a refinery expansion in the U.S. Virgin Islands. That was ultimately cut. A lot of actions that have constrained the ability for the U.S. oil and gas sector to be able to produce. Guess what happens in the laws of supply and demand when you cut down supply, prices go up, especially when demand stays flat or demand goes up.

Mccluskey, who is wounded radios their position, Guido and O flaherty, they're picked up by a Japanese destroyer in their interrogated. They refuse to give up the name of their ship and they're thrown overboard. Each tied to an anchor, they don't show that having to flower to what they show it happening to Guido, played by Nick Jonas, and that really happened, although it took longer the interrogation is believed to have lasted more than a week. Said, that's really a tragic thing. Anyway, let's see, we talked about the akagi sinking and nagumo abandoned ships. I'll skip that part on the battleship yamato 600 miles away. Yamamoto hears of the three lost carriers and he realizes the Americans knew that they were coming. So the Japanese are down to one carrier now, they hear you, and that commander, which Sean mentioned already admiral yamaguchi, he orders an air attack on the Yorktown and it mortally wounds. It gives it so much damage that it's it can't sink. Although technically what happened is that they hit it once and then the Yorktown's rescue, I mean, what do you call it? The damage control people did such a good job that the next group saw it and thought it was not damaged they thought it was a different carrier. So they hit it again. So they double attacked, they ended up double attacking the Yorktown. And it's going to go down on the enterprise, admiral spruance orders best to assemble an attack group and attack the hero. The last Japanese carrier still afloat. Murray, who's best gunner, says he can't go, but best talks him into going. At four 56 p.m., best squadron attacks the hero. Best saying, this is for pearl. That's kind of a Hollywood cheesy line, but he drops a bomb that hits right in the middle of the flight deck. Dickie arrives back at the enterprise. He waits for best to return. And by the way, the carrier is going to be it's damaged too badly to recover. As I like to say, mortally wounded. After a long delay best returns, spruance orders the fleet to withdraw, he says, we've won a great victory today. Let's not blow it. And then Japanese admiral yamaguchi orders to hear you to be scuttled. It can't be fixed. It's got to go down to the bottom. They got to get sink it so the Americans don't somehow recover it. And he addresses the ship's officers, taking responsibility for the loss of the ship, and he says he will go down with the ship. The ship's captain joins him. Yamaguchi tells him, let us enjoy the moon together. And that really happened too. The two men watches another Japanese ship destroys the hear you. Then Yamamoto is informed that the American fleet has withdrawn. He orders the Japanese fleet to withdraw, station hypo intercepts the order laden informs Nimitz, who simply says we won..

He doesn't look at the Cambridge. He looks back and he says, this place is a powder keg. Yeah. And also at the same time, these carriers are making violent maneuvers, right? And left to avoid bombs from American dive bombers coming in from midway, as well as American medium bombers and torpedo planes. And American B-17s. So they've got bombs falling from all over the place. None of them are hitting, but they're moving in every direction that they can to avoid those bombs. And the guns are firing on the sides of the ship. So you've got ammunition crews bringing up ammunition for the anti aircraft guns as well. So that's what's going on. It's chaos. It's chaos, yes. And then to make it even more interesting at 7 45, the USS submarine nautilus, which is right in the middle of the Japanese fleet spots the Japanese fleet at about the same time the enterprise launches its plane, including best squadron to attack the fleet. Best oxygen line is bad. He's got caustic soda and he actually sucks in some caustic soda instead of regular oxygen, and he hurts him a lot. His lungs are kind of messed up, but he decides to continue the mission. But then they can't find the Japanese carriers. The nautilus then attacks the battleship kirishima, but unsuccessfully, and then the Japanese destroyer, arashi is sent to deal with this American submarine. It launches depth charges against the nautilus, but it doesn't hit. Finally, it's actually kaga that he that they attack. I looked it up and it said kirishima. I think they wanted to. It goes through my online sources wrong, but they saw a carrier. The torpedo goes right past chaga. So yeah, I mean, whether regardless, there's an American submarine..

"We'll get Sean's take on the casting, but let's move on to what happens after the attack at home commander Leighton, who's now head of naval intelligence of Pearl Harbor, is summoned by admiral husband Kimmel, who is that time as we know from our previous movies and from our battle series is that he sink pack he's commander in chief of the Pacific fleet. On the way, latencies of the damage caused by the Japanese planes and meanwhile on the Arizona Pearson Sully tried to go via rope to another ship, and then we see Dickey. He's on his way to Pearl Harbor. Remember the enterprise had launched its planes to go to pearl, not knowing what was going on. And he gets involved in the battle, his plane is hit. He has to bail out. Sully makes it off the Arizona but pierce stops to shoot at Japanese planes, Sean mentioned that a minute ago and he's killed. And we don't really see him die, but we know he does. The Arizona sinks. Right. He's trying to get across. So there's a rope that they strung across to the vestal, which is the supply ship that was a repair ship that was next to them. And he helps he helps solidly get across. And another guy falls in the water's burning beneath him. And then, but then the bomb hits Arizona and it causes the massive explosion. And that's very accurate. There was very graphic the water was on fire. There was oil all over the place and a lot of men burnt to death in the water. Yeah. Yeah, and you know we talked about in George orator. They had one shot to blow up the set of the Arizona and they wanted to try to get the bridge to collapse forward. Like it did in history, right? And they couldn't quite guarantee it. So the director just told us the bairo people just do it and we'll get it. Well, in this, you have control over that because you can make it make it happen the way it's supposed to happen. Now I will say this scene in the movie Pearl Harbor. Michael Bay does a fantastic job in that movie with the attack. So although it's a little over the top because there's a messmate who's peeling potatoes and he sees the bomb come in and the spinners stop in an explode. That was a little silly, but at the same time, like it's definitely you definitely get in the Michael Bay Pearl Harbor movie. Definitely get the attack really well done. But it's even better here if the only problem is this is very fast..

"You're like you don't wanna lose these things that have been important theoretically but like what the fuck you're gonna prove to court that you're you know evolve with the kid's life when you've missed x. amount of practices and x. amount of schoolteachers. And the you know. Like i thought that was really interesting. How a guy's whole life narrative falls apart with like a couple of line of basic questions about you know and it could have been a lot of things like when's the last time he's been to dr what's his doctor's name you know Who's who teach like. He just completely caught out not participating in the things that are suddenly the most important thing is life. But i think that's something that whether you're divorced dad or you're a dad and a happy marriage stuff you got to think about you know like what are you investing in. What is the most important thing in your life. What if you had to prove that you know Is is your life backing that up. I thought that stuff is the fact. I was thinking about anyway to. Yeah it's like you know you. And i are both married. I've only been married for less than two years. So it's not like i'm at this this kind of stage with something even potentially right and i've been married two times so okay. Yeah you're the alan alda here. You're go start. Your own attorney's office to do a divorce stuff can happen. Yeah i hope not but No but there's still a lot of stuff that's identifiable and i think if it doesn't like that's why i say it doesn't necessarily have to be the marriage rights or the kids or anything like that. It's just like there's something human in this movie. Where time passes things change. If you take your eyes off of your life for a while or one aspect of it you might end up regretting that like. Who's fault that you know like. I ended up identifying a lot with scarlett johansson character nicole because that monologue she has in laura dern office in that first..

boys who were after a good education it's not like the missions without critics but they were very popular and eventually sold themselves as educational to pseudoscience or even real science I was

to restrict ourselves but live human exhibition no matter how weird the other exhibit Scott was the strange strangest and most reprehensible I wanted to figure out what the audience Scott from it and intially through other writers and theorists more clear than me I came to understand that the exhibitions where like Victorian vision of reality they will you get to watch the other behaving in ways you find odd you judge abnormal and I realized I do it too I've watched the Kardashians for the pure spectacle of it for the oddness of overpumped loops and helps the strangeness of Money To Burn Exhibition this Strangeness Of Division of of Private arguments made public reality TV contains our human exhibitions interesting now televisions wearing that she animal print and MEK tribal warpaint simultaneously unsettling us and making us feel food and our world and the real world perhaps this is the great illusion and maybe we get from it what the Victorian Scott from their exhibition and the saints that we are regular in normal that we don't differ from each other that much I mean the neighbors way beater off us but Donald Kardashian rich and it'll distracts us for a while and the way that is pleasant but also slightly uneasy as doing something we know is not exactly good for us the superb Tina is appearing with three other rises in history he's seen on Sunday morning it'll even

his whole body of work delightfully his very first novel published in two thousand was called the thief of time to hear about his relationship with distraction please welcome John boing the thanks very much I bring greetings from all the people of Ireland tall. We're very happy to get rid of me until you've had five million people come to an airport and plus you onto a plane haven't lived so I'm going to read my little piece about distraction it's going to sound at the start like I'm just doing a shameless plug for my new book it's not going it's going to hit the word action at some point and that book is available however in Hardback Paperback e Book and also a lovely audio version and wherever books are sold like like most writers I think I am essentially a very solitary person I like to be at home I'm not much of a socialized I don't have any ends and in general I prefer to be with my family than with anybody else where I live in Dublin my parents live ten minutes away from my house and my sisters and my niece live halfway between us and we call it the Boyne Triangle I try not to stray too far outside of that triangle because within its angles I feel at my most safe although it is lovely to be here into needless to say but the world has a way of getting in new sometimes and making you feel very unsafe indeed last month I published my sixth novel for Young Readers and my seventeenth in total a book called my brother's name is Jessica it's the story of a thirteen year old boy Sam who's embarrassed confused and even horrified when the person he's always known as his seventeen year old brother Jason and answers that he believes he's really a girl and wishes to explore this new identity I wrote it as a book that would hopefully support young people who are going through Gender right entity issues or who knew young people who are going through gender identity issues I wanted to tell them that while all of us are still learning about the subject and need to be educated department I believe that the world is essentially a good place that people are essentially kind and there can be a loving society out there ready to help and system I wanted them to feel not shame or fear but hope to support the book and this was my first mistake support the book wrote an article in the Irish Times are most important newspaper expressing thoughts upon these lines and then went about my business hoping that readers would be drawn to the Oh and hopefully enjoy it and then if you'll forgive me thanks to twitter the shit hit the fan the I knew of any backlash was Hashtag that appeared on social media and the Social Media Platform Hashtag boycott John Boyne it'd been there by somebody with a fake name and profile so I didn't think too much about it at the time and just with my work as ever my attention is usually focused on the next novel that I'm writing but then my my editor emailed me to say that she and some others had noticed some negative online activity and I shouldn't worry too much about it which of course made me worry too much about it the day that my article was published my twitter feed which is generally builds around me talking about books that I like and for some strange reason kitchen implements that fascinate me was filled with comments at my attitudes supposedly to transgender people and my own personal character turned out I wasn't aware of it it turned out that I was transphobic that I was a misogynist and that I was basically donald trump with a better haircut almost buddy who messaged me pointed out that they hadn't read the novel and they wouldn't read it because it was so terrible I needed to apologize I was told nobody said who I should tippy apologize to but I should apologize anyway I've always bean I think quite a thin skinned person not so much in terms of criticism of my novels a bad review for example there's never particularly bothered me as I think a writer knows the value of their own work anyway and they don't need to be told that it's either a masterpiece we're travesty you just know yourself whether you've achieved artistically what you set out to achieve no my thin skin comes more in terms of personal abuse I don't like arguments at all I walk away from conflict unkind words just hit me like bullets at had the occasional twitter spot before after watching the finding Neverland documentary a couple of months ago I expressed support for the two men who been abused by Michael Jackson when they were boys and it was if bite admitted to drowning at birth the way people some people came at me and once when I expressed a dislike of new one direction song I was in disgrace for weeks if any of you are live tweeting this event can I just say for the record there are no badge one direction songs I'm not going through that again those bitches recruit Eh but I've never experienced anything like this for days I lived in a state of total anxiety unable to work on able to read knowing that every time I pressed that it'll blew up on my phone that would be more rage directed my way and I only have a few minutes here so I won't go into the full details of what had caused I such a fence but involved involved me as a non trans person writing a book about a Trans Person As a writer does not have the right even the responsibility God and should not write about in their fiction what I found astonishing though and most of sending really was that level of vitriol I was told that I should be careful if I went out alone josh I never go out at night anyways where would I go I'm all this while I was about to start a book Tur- In the UK in support of the novel and did the only thing I felt I could do under circumstances which was that I disabled my twitter account for a few weeks and I thought that miss it I thought that I'd feel some withdrawal symptoms but on the contrary it actually turned out to be a blessed relief the world I figured could carry on without me for awhile and strangers online could scream at each other rather than at me taking these attractions the way they're taking these distractions away I managed to read an extra couple of novels because I wasn't online just another chapter of the book that I'm writing and that sick feeling in my stomach went away because in reality if you're not aware of the nastiness than actually can't really hurt you the day before leaving Ireland to come to New Zealand I reactivated my account after almost a month away and was glad to be able to return to the fuhrer after the or to just talking about books kitchen implements I still got the occasional nasty message but I choose to ignore them and mute anybody who says anything on and I think if you've just blocked somebody you make them feel that they've got to you but if you just mute them then them which is better but that month of digital detox was actually really helpful to me both as a person and as a writer we speak to each other online in ways we would never address each other within real life anonymity seems to give people the right to use language they would never employ in social settings and to think the worst of people they've never met in real life we tend to give I think in general people the benefit of the doubt until they give us reason not to see you might ask why I went back to twitter it was so good being away I'd never really intended to be a permanent departure ball so I don't feel that any of us no matter what our thoughts should be bullied into silence we win arguments by debate or we lose them by debate but if we don't take part where we can't change anything at all I'm going to use my social media in very different ways in the time ahead I think engaging with unkindness in any form is pointless that's rather that you can never win and it just ends up eating you up inside for all its flaws social media like twitter can be a positive place but I suspect there'll be some times ahead we're just steer away from it for a few weeks again until I clear some space in my head I'll read a right and I'll hang out.

"And it's quite a lot of disturbing staff about being a girl in today's society so the books are imaginer directed the young audience so why did you choose that Jonah of writer I chose it because a mainly through my work with villains actually so the people who about Villainy Syndrome villainous is an online media project that I cited for young women a few years ago we young women can they are the ones writing the articles audience with the ones that had personal elements to them you know I think a lot of young women like to feel that they're not alone the things that they might be going through and certainly that bet came out really strongly in Vilnius through feedback and so so I was really aware that that was quite a good way to actually communicate with that particular audience and I I love I was at a school as today which was awesome and I love having young people coming up and feeling like they can they can open up to me and we can have conversations so so that was the main reason that I chose it but also you know because I think a lot of the issues that feminism touches waiting feminism touches everything but it can get quite academic every now and then Dan get quite you know you're talking about intersectional this and all of the different structures and that kind of stuff but actually all of these things that we these constructs we have in the language that we have to talk about these things they exist because they happen to humans and so actually putting human stories for those academic concepts the structures that we're fighting against I think just it helps me for a start to kind of you know remember the reality of it better so helps to illustrate potentially two people who haven't experienced some of these things actually impact that sexism and racism with those phobia and all those kinds of things the impacts of that can have on real human beings I didn't specifically really write my a book for a young audience okay the people according to my social media metrix demographics that most follows me between the ages of twenty five and thirty four but I just yarrow to some of us right now hoping that it would resume the young girls but also anyone who had an experience not just hard to be a girl today like it's always hard to be and the interesting thing about it is that it the range of lettuce that I've received from people has been for many one as young as thirteen to women in their seventy s and the the ones from women in their seventy actually break my heart the most because some of them say things like they've never they've never they've never understood that they were allowed to be angry before you know and I just think that such a makes me so mad ironically that anyone could have gone through seventy okay do their life and felt like they weren't allowed to express a human emotion I think that the thing about my book is that it's really accessibly written in lots of ways I'm not an academic I didn't I've never really been good academic writing not very good at researching and so it feels like it's a way for I've heard people describe it as being like hearts really bit one oh one and it's kind of like fine I personally think it's one on one but I think it's a way for people who are one point of understanding feminism I'm to get an entry and learn a little bit more and for other people who do know a lot more about it to maybe feel same in it somehow because it's not just it's not really a book that tries to teach anyone coming I think it's a book that tries to like give voice to an experience and that a lot of people and a lot of women have never felt like they're either entitled to share or that anyone would believe them if they did some of those experiences a quiet grueling body image thanks Belania catting and do you think that we get enough public discussion of those issues today on there are good steps we could take about these issues Ah there there's a lot more discussion now than the has been previously I I I actually I'm in a place of trying to figure something out self the moment around cutting particularly so I made the decision to disclose in the book that I cut myself from when I was age leaving between t thank and my reasons for that that it was very maladaptive coping mechanism Navarra desired to commit suicide through that or or even cry out but it was always disguised lucky I don't have scars but I I've heard recently and I was I was giving a talk to the Oakland D. H. B. in one of the psychologists who got up to speak after me told me that something like three orders of young people that are cutting themselves now Maryland I can't remember what the breakdown of that but I would I would geese it's probably more female because I think more young women present to mental health services is a lot of statistics around that but it's just an each geese don't quote me on that and wonder you know because I remember I didn't just start cutting myself because I thought it was a good idea one day I'm pretty sure that I would have rated an adult magazine some kind of story end and I do where I'm going with this as I'm kind of I'm trying to figure out how to have a conversation with young people about these kinds of things without also tetley encouraging it the it's the last thing I want to do but I want young people doing those kinds of things to to know that they're not alone in to know that there is a way to get past it because I mean to be frank cutting kind of becomes an addiction because he's actually a physiological reaction that happens when you cut yourself your brain releases endorphins and pain reducing neurotransmitters which in it becomes a mixture that works doesn't it doesn't work in the long term so yes I I'm trying I'm trying to figure out how to and I don't have the really interesting I never was a cutter Belichick and anorexic first and then blame and that's actually honest honestly been something that's kind of like I mean you probably still sometimes feel the urge to cut maybe you don't think that when you deal with that kind of learn to Monticello yeah it doesn't really go away when you learn to sort hating behaviors it's the purging give brings the same sort of anything yeah anyone who knows who's been through that which is a lot of people knows those dynamics but I think that one of the problems is that we do need to have a really concerted and focused are really considered focus on men's mental health you know and it's one of the things that feminists here all the time is that all what about men's mental health issues as a person as a citizen of the world is someone who surprisingly actually does love a lot of men and thinks about John and I think about the fact that the largest between men between the ages of eighteen and forty five or suicide I don't want to ignore that I want to focus on that but I think that the album is that people then in that discussion assumes that men's met the mental health crisis in men is the only meant that we deal with you know or the or the biggest one or the one that we need to focus on the most or the one that if we pay any attention to women's issues or issues outside of anyone other than six gentlemen and somehow we are ignoring this huge crisis when actually we often hear that men killed themselves at a rate of three times that of women but women try to kill them elves at a rate of three times that of men choose different methods successful and one of the things that I say in like a girl is that there are lots of way I'm sorry I'm aware that for some people this conversation might be quite triggering so just go gently but for men the ultimate act of violence that they might commit is against them against someone else but let's just say that it's against the ultimate active off destruction is to kill themselves but girls try to kill themselves and really long and sustained ways and their ultimate goal might not be to die but feeling might be that they don't want to be here and so they might cope by cutting themselves off by stub engaged starving themselves by engaging in cycles of binging and urging by engaging and really destructive addictive behaviors with drinking or drugs or whatever it might be and I think that people tend to it pay attention to those things as much because they just see it as being part of the inherently traumatic nature of femininity that oh well that's just what goals do because the drama at dramatic and their attention seekers like no one ever says that a man's engaging in destructive behaviors because he's an attention seeker but because women aren't goals in women aunt actually allowed to seek attention and maybe they are seeking attention maybe there screaming like pay attention to me because I feel like I'm dying in here and they need someone to care for them but because women aren't allowed to seek attention on their own terms but they're forced to upped attention from other people and how other people believe that they should receive attention we're kind of don't really have an effective way in society able to really address those issues so yes of course we need to pay attention to mental health like I don't think it no matter what men's rights activists think I don't think that you could find many feminists who would disagree that they want men to grow up in healthier environments where they mental health doesn't suffer so drastically at the hands of patriarchal you and with our sons and our husbands and our friends and our brothers aunt killing themselves but also like we and we just want someone to acknowledge that we're going through pain as well and we need to come up with an effective strategy to be able to deal with that so do you share Lucy's concern that the very fact you know how to do it this thing you'll pondering by talking about something you might make it an attractive well I mean that's what around reporting on suicide because of that yeah the domino effect yeah and completely separate vein i knows someone who's doing a PhD on how mass shootings in America started to become more common when people began reporting on mass shootings later another one another one of your many hits so for the future of journalism what do you imagine as important as feminists what do you think journalism is in a good place right now I think that what's vital for journalism going forward is actually you having diverse journalists rolling diverse stories and diverse not even just journalists and the book I talk about I did a quite a bit of research around our media and one of the very non academic research activities that I us into a three women panel that was during a radio show but how tall which one was talking they would say oh well the reason that we don't have more than one woman on the show is because people can't tell the difference between women's voices and I have to say someone who had to like media monitor panel the three men three minutes and they were all exactly.

That's why I feel the need to point that out I'm going to read something fit Louise Today those poems for amazing that was like my baby's about two years older than yours but it really took me back I'm going to read a letter that I I read a little all go for women of letters in Sydney and it was a letter that was good bye but it's a letter about my mother so I felt like it was appropriate circumstance before cancer the worst you can imagine is never as bad as what life throws at you before can't inheritance on acknowledged optimism tells you that when the person you love goes you'll be going with them that in fact you and everyone you've ever loved will join together on the clifftops that mark the edge of this mortal coil class end and jump diving into the great beyond knowing that everything is going to be okay because you're all together the day after we found out a mother might have Hansa I sat with my brother and sister in a hospital waiting room while a doctor ten meters away behind closed door updated my parents the details I kept walking slowly Pasta Room trying to catch a word any word that might tell me this is all going to be okay the voices were muffled so I sat again and put my head on my sister's shoulder the doctor came out my father appeared he turned off the light and closed the door until it was only a few centimeters AJA snippets of the station filled it out I tried to catch them all but they flitted through my years without forming anything solid until I heard my father say and we'll just throw a big party I froze against my sister the cold wave of panic crashing over my body she held me tightly as my father appeared at the door invited to seeing and told us about the chambermaid found growing near her liver and unasked question hung heavy in the room are you going to die we posed less series variation shirow it can they get rid of it of the doctors optimistic my parents responded vaguely hope for the best prepare for the worst that's what the doctors say there's an increasing success rate with this kind of thing they say some of their patients is still going after ten or twelve years which is I wanted to ask ten or twelve a week later my mother went into hospital for an operation forty percent of her liver is she was kaput but the doctors that mysterious group of P people who you never seem to see but who hold the fate of the one most year to you in their hands thought they could get the rest there would be recovery of course six weeks of bedrest it by radiation and chemotherapy but these are the normal hallmarks of cancer treatment people survived cancer all the time family and I told each other we took a active side relief everything's going to be okay we thought because how could it not be the operation was scheduled to take around six hours so surprised when my father called me two hours in there were no ambiguities what ifs in that phone call only heaving sobs and uncontrollable anguish what adopt couldn't say on their scans and fancy equipment became quickly apparent the moment they opened her up and took a look inside choose everywhere inside tapestry of toxic lumps and impenetrable wasteland with a warning sign spiked into its middle they closed her up and passed on their apologies with sorry there's nothing we can do it was worse than we saw we tried for a while to handle it ourselves you don't give up on the people you love and you tell yourself that the doctor aren't everything we decided not to listen to them we bought a juicing machine organic foods books with titles like eight your way to being cast a free and so you've been told you're going to die I found some taste sold out of candidate that was supposed to be a miracle cure so I bought it went to stay with my parents. Hr she drank at every day in the afternoons we sat watching TV together she and her dressing gown and my jeans she talked loudly throughout each cleared and the radiation treatment to even put a little bit of pink and head shakes it was easy to believe that maybe everyone had gotten it wrong that our little home remedies were working and she might actually beat this thing but then she caught a fever and lost her appetite new scans revealed inflammation in his stomach that wasn't going away she went to hospital for a week and then another week we were told the only real option left was to have gastric bypass procedure done it would be three maybe four months dea time you promise us too well but we always want more of you a few days before the operation was scheduled my parents invited us all home for dinner my mother was sitting on a chair at the table wrapped in that familiar blue dressing and I noticed that the pink could gone from cheeks now my father pours a glass of wine and got straight to the point telling us that I'm mother had decided against having operation because she was ready to go what does that mean I asked not wanting to understand or accept what he was saying my mother had been sitting starting face in what I now recognize a steely resolve she looked up and told us how she had come to her decision she didn't want to spend more time in hospital too no more pain and suffering just to prolong the inevitable they expected it would be quick she said the cancer had progressed so far that she could no longer eight the three or four months type in banking on disappeared we were talking about a matter of days then my father spiked the woods the ones that have been seated across my soul forevermore we've asked you here tonight to say goodbye we looked at him tears streaming down our faces often tonight you'll go home she doesn't want you to come back and we'll stay here and wait I stumbled outside and lay on the ground every memory if every Church every kiss every argument and every law shared roaring up through me and crashing out and wet howling solves how could I be ready to say goodbye hi to let go of the vessel that carried me from the beginning the one who traveled to the mystery to bring me back and make me hers Austin we feel when we have our mothers taken from us as David Ferguson once wrote the reality is far more violent than that it is an UN mothering that feels raw fundamental a pain that reaches all the way down to your ligaments and bones before we are born we swell in the cocoon of that space in our mothers Williams as Ferguson so eloquently put it they are a first firmament literally office told him the universe from substance we were formed what are we to do when our universe disappeared if we have the hearts walk around outside our mother's bodies as Elizabeth Stone once word of children how do we keep on pumping when those bodies attend into ashes myself subsided and I lay there staring at the store for a few minutes more in that moment I remembered something my mother had said at the Start cancer journey you can scream rayle at the sky all you want and demand and demand to know why may but if you listen carefully a voice will come back through the night and whisper why not year I went back inside and we will try to ignore the elephant in the room laughed as best as we could with her she told us she wanted us to live our lives to the fullest that she was proud of us and would always love us she told us to take care of each other and two weeks later she was gone for a long time I thought of this not only through the heartache of losing my mother of letting go of my protector Mike Guide my sometimes Nemesis I was angry at her for giving up for costing us out and denying us the chance to ring as much of that precious time out of Harris possible I wanted more I still want more but I remember one thing more and more clearly that she'd been so strong unwavering in her determination I couldn't understand then how she could be so emotionless about it didn't feel it as we did but as my brother and sister said.

"Is the hunter so many of our stories as a city and as a community and we're very proud and Anita of our status as a UNESCO the city of literature but it is meaningless in and of itself without writers and readers constantly breathing new life into it it's not a museum piece of knowledge are in a museum it's not a middle for the city's literary pasts illustrious as that is but it's commitment ongoing to contemporary work into the next generation of woods and ideas and that is what this weekend is all about words and ideas at tools for us to make a sorry I'm it's been a while popping my apologies at tolls for us to make sense of the turbulent times we live in dealing with fake news that's parenting for a more peaceful world with that's quite literally as survival in the wild or at a more primal level dealing with people like poets and murderous and rockstars but above all else like this about now community I think so this weekend and beyond this weekend I think the the title is for us to read more and talk more and argue Moore and laugh more and build stronger bonds through bitter standing of each other and the world around us because as pollyannaish as the sounds and apologies I'm GonNa tuna optimist I think these the greatest tools ahead and the greatest hope that we have of collectively getting through whatever this condition is that we are currently dealing with so thanks again clear in your entire team this is a remarkable event in a remarkable addition to the Cultural Community calendar here thank you all of your thanks to everyone who has come from quite some distance in some cases to be a part of it now we really appreciate it and I hope you we'll have a productive fistful over the next two days we're belongs remaining depending on how long you stay the evening Pos- so on behalf of the city welcome and thank you awesome aw got I do being Cutting Attack Maha no my Heidi Mikey Tina who if I could hear the heater eat they pull name Mamie Tiki Manoa or auty porty he chi-ta who caddy Mom Oy y Taha Tina Carter Cutolo Thira Makoto Keita Hathor Dnr Koto Deny Koto Tina Takato good evening and welcome to this really spectacular evening I'm very hi to be here we're going to hear from very different writers from different parts of the world from England Ireland Australia and Altieri and people of different intimacies they write poetry music novels essays nonfiction young adult fiction and foam theater scripts some of them right combination loves always so different genres different disciplines different lives but they have things in common for one thing they all award-winning and bestselling they also share the things that all writers do they know about the tyranny of the blank page and they will have meet the thieves time for me at least these are the twin demons who can with each other you struggle to find the time to rise in apparently somebody needs done a coat ornate picking up from skull or you're supposed to do something to pay the mortgage or someone wants you to talk about writing when you would much rather right and so you fantasy is about a quiet place where you can spend days in your pyjamas drinking tea naval washing just living inside your own head and finding exciting ways of arranging woods new in interesting would but then you find that quiet place and it can be a quiet and you discover that your brain is hungry and would rather eight then cook and waist whole day reading nonsense or worse you read something so brilliant you decide there's no point in ever writing anything yourself because you have nothing that's wonderful to say and you'll never be as good at saying it as that and Opportunities for distraction have grown exponentially in recent times not just twitter doc instagram endless emails all of those things but the actual toll that most of us use to write also contains at the click of a mouse pretty much book every article every video all the poems and songs that exist in the world amazing that really any of us get anything done at all distractions of bash sometimes you find the thing you're looking for that idea to fell the blank page when you stop looking for it and focus elsewhere the washing machine take a shower if you have to chop some onions go for a drive look away and suddenly you will see it plus we can do some good things when we procrastinate I want to have a very clean house on Tuesday all I need is a deadline on Friday so we have our six rises to tell us about distraction and whatever way they want what they do to God the creative spaces but maybe also where they wonder after to find the things that they need the river whole same might fall down and what they might bring back so let's begin tonight with a polite I always find that evening stock-based if you start with a poet so Chris Tastes was born and raised and lower hatch and now lives in Wellington big move his his first book of poetry how to be dated in a year of took Rita's back to a shocking moody committed more than one hundred years ago and won the Jesse MCI award at the Two Thousand Sixteen Autumn New Zealand Book Awards and has seen Akeso mask took a dive into the worlds of Hyper Masculine Romanticism ended involve dancing alone and nightclubs by the Herald End spinoff listed it as the beast books of two thousand eighteen Chris also an actor and he studied film in English literature at Victoria and he has the most spectacular range of jackets to make Chris and one of his jackets please welcome him to the stage Christif is a lot of people cure thank you Michelle thank you so much to the festival for bringing me down to Dunedin it's such a pleasure to be here and to be a part of this evening longs sites such wonderful writers I'm going to read three pounds for each night I've written something especially for tonight but I'm going to actually start with two poems from my book he's a mask which guests dove into the World of distraction and films and this I as co pay no attention to that man behind the curtain and that's the line that the wizard of Oz is when Dorothy and Co start to realize nothing is all it seems pay no attention to that man behind the curtain I dream of fame you live my life among cardboard crowds the stands to be examined perhaps even crushed but I can't help myself for wanting to appropriate to the learn or the color of a baby's flushed cheek for cheap entertainment I want the is to want they can keep their questions to themselves they treat my songs with spotlights but denied them curtains to hide behind such songs tailored for weaken knees what do you hear now the wheels of Tornado the strings of a storm to Vail Vail to know will I've got enough to reveal between my buzz without him bringing an avalanche to swallow my song this next one is called McGovern and mcguffin is a plot device used to propel a narrative Ford the best way I've heard it described is that's the thing that the thing or the person that the characters a interested in the audience as she doesn't care about and it's often associated with Alfred Hitchcock films this macguffin to say that the briefcase is pertinent is to ignore the man in the space could gray suit slouched by the payphone mustache ready to turn villain concealed gun press squarely against his ribcage you can tell betty because he doesn't blink and look straight into the camera like he couldn't give a fuck to express that the film did not commit to the characters and tints as to impose in your own logic tongue lashing at the messes not able to turn the is the dirty light tainting the walls of bathroom stalls used for hookups and doc fixes there the clinical plink of syringes falling to the floor and fluorescent tubes realizing illumination at this point we are questioned about our own intent as an audience of willing accomplices our eyes dilate what would it take for us to stop resorting to trade. craft to pull each other into honest dialogue some of US rely on our gift of good timing days one hung on it the rest of us sick and this the end I never walk out on films because I hate to see a story go unfinished you are more likely to walk whereas I could never leave you but there's the door and I'm told the sky is particularly bright tonight it only takes a little moonlight to test your commitment of course I got distracted I fell down mini into neat and wikipedia holes I learned a lot about medium relation techniques and the things that magicians do to distract the audiences to pull off their tricks and then I was distracted by something surreal the events and Khristich basically derail any progress that I was making on this poem and all of that ended up and this poem so this is called the mission every time I turn to see I should be looking I see my reflect Shen there so much of the world within reach from your disc screens within screens and halls within halls tale talking dogs and newspapers crying wolf it's tiny hemmer's pounding at your skin and not knowing you wake up every morning covered in bruises it's a story so vivid you keep repeating it as if it were yours to tell pulling up your sleeves and showing strangers a new shade of blue you we know the story and who is telling it don't be surprised when a door slams shut and you find yourself asking how long has that been there My reflection is a magician he tells me where to look inside every poem stage with trapdoors inside every it's a smoke machine inside every poem is a mirror buried in the Volta and once bound and gazed upon it shows you what you missed as you were following the tip of the wand the magician tells you where to look and so you look because magic doesn't work if you don't follow instructions but as a spectator the trick is to expect everything and nothing at the same time the trick is to watch the one while you're left hand is behind your back ticketing the revelation to your past self so when you reach the reveal you have seen the magicians flourish and all its cross section posed wiring glory look over there adore you've never noticed a secret way in and out anything could be placed before you undetected of course it's been there the whole time you've spent your entire life with your body pushed up against the door but the crowd without wires and while is scanning for the slightest quiver we don't see them sit fire to the scenery the strike of the match disguised by our applause with so much happening in this world it's getting harder to resist everything that demands my attention and harder to tell what unknowingly steel for myself when I fall for another smokescreen over here is shattered glass scattered over the pavement catching sunlight in bidding to be written about meanwhile each shot it's spot the difference game we won picture is an earthquake thing the magician tells me sleep is the biggest distraction of all there's no joy in surrendering to the screens behind my eyes with everything believe to be true as a wrong memory and echo up into happy to be swallowed by in the morning everything is the same but shifted slightly to the right enjoy the night someone has turned all your books around so this spines now facing the wall the whole damn time they're smoking I from the wings both the magician and the audience become the show passing the matches between them call and response running in both actions can we still call this power and if so how many walls will be left standing extinguished the flames it's from the wing I want to look away but the wire snaps back each time if you are a person of color you don't get to live through a national conversation about racism I'm an shame without taking multiple hits to the body it's like being a prop in your own story and constantly wondering whether someone will pick you up just to acknowledge that you're there it's screaming fire in a burning building while everyone on twitter is saying it's not fire but a smoke machine doing what it's been told to do a blind man doesn't need sea of fire to know the rush of standing in a burning building and if he sends their long enough he will be taken by the flames so much debate risks.

C. slightly awed candidate for this Psychopathic C. O. Keller and he stood out in the context of the bottle on the bottle John was a rough east end of the city and he seemed much two coats overly to to be in that space yeah I mean he's very clean cut as an what was he doing it was easier to lure victims seems to be in the media but all three victims would picked up the bottle on ballroom and would all take into within one hundred yards of the homes and then raped and murdered and I'm to be that the bottle on the only thing that the victims had in common the all came from different parts of the city the nothing obviously tie the victims together apart from the location which would pick up the scene sitting which I talked about before a few days ago I I put into Google Glasgow nineteen sixty nine and one of the things I found was a brilliant sort of photographic project God who's taking photographs of abandoned tenements a was this the kind of source material that you use because it is uncommonly vivid and in a close seating of Glasgow it's the star of the book right I mean Glaspie was fourteen in having been documented at this pedia by five or six billion photographer so that the photographic evidence is fabulous and this all boats the city in ruins the the old city tenements being demolished on people being decanted to the hosing schemers and this could eight saint so voyeurism build almost like dolls hoses is the tenements with the facades hanging off and you can see the wallpaper you can see people bathrooms sweets and of voyeuristic INSA- into into those lives so it was trikes nothing to say at the beacon particular pedia the sewage Aug. of course Bible join in a saints speaks to Pedia- in history this was the pdf twin as the city tenements were being demolished and people were being decanted to the peripheral housing schemes and although that was a positive move in material sessoms Nazis moving to a situation where you know say toilet and washing machine you didn't know who your next door neighbor was so in the old tenements she had saints of community that everyone else's business and it was this that fair the annoying that anybody could be joe and this is one of the attractions to me of the material the of fever that gripped the city and the panic that your next door neighbor or the guy standing over here paint next year in the horseshoe bar could turn out to be able join the the sitting reminds me of who was a chap who was sort of almost single handedly responsible for something we call Scandinavian aw hitting somebody Michael Yeah yeah even those books we'll see to Norway where they were sitting there just drew you back and drew you why is it that see things seem so important and crime fiction I don't know who I mean that's the old cliche into the same thing as a character in the book and that for someone like Ian Rankin but as a crime scene waiting to happen as he puts in the false I don't know I tend to think that the Scandinavians and people in rank and rate number Eddin but have it easy in the sense that one of the things they're trying to do little has uncovered the heddon underbelly off an apparently respectable society eh that's getting much easier to do indicate of Scandinavia of these slightly Dole hygienic social democracies surprisingly have their stock on the Bailey or in the case of Edinburgh Jean Brodie agent in Rankin can then uncovered I was a bit different because Feast surprised that Glasgow is violent city the whole image of Glasgow is predicated on the new means city that razor gangs the highest homicide rate and waste of Europe for for a good number of years so what's challenge to think to write fiction in Glasgow all underbelly in other words what would be the what would be the parallel with Dunedin easy Chris is I think like that can go VIC vibe Dunedin as one of the one of the plots and the Rato's war food place with its front page headline news if someone has a fire that wardrobe you know nothing happens in except when something happens when something happens happens David Been Outta Wanna you've got one of the potential of grown Gignoux golfing task it easy to to rise to the surface or indeed as anyone in today's paper the fantastic front page story about the family and more skill and the royal family of ninety kids apparently after this origin of this family in Moscow now making if they turn out to be complete psychopaths ooh that'd be a fantastic the language Ooh Liam novel as is important I think as as as seating wrote on twitter few months ago I'm writing a scene in which drunk man is oxted out

probably OCSTA- of serve as hot cold in Scottish vernacular I think in quaker is that right yeah I mean you can you can overdo that so I try to keep it to a minimum but off and on boost but things that you think are standard English that promote nor to be this particular you Geez forms will be did or this is happening out with normal walking and people will in England and elsewhere look if your

given all the right answers of the shear breadth of the writing is quite impressive you've written about crippen the crippen murder in London in one thousand nine tens about a priest in the history of let's of course a most if you will be familiar with John's most famous book boy with striped Pajamas about a young German boy which is utterly heartbreaking the New Zealander a listener described your novel hearts invisible fury's as a funny I'm vicious novel about growing up gay in Ireland you've also written a ghost story in this house is haunted and the Guardian also described d'you recent book a ladder in the sky as deliciously dark so part of my rimet tonight is to find out how much fun and I'm assuming you did have some fun creating the charismatic fiercely machiavellian devastatingly handsome psychopath Morris Swift well it's not about griffey of sorts it was it was a lot of fun to write it wasn't a lot of fun to experience in real life which was where the story came from in the first place AH started about I guess it started about seven years ago really this novel one way or another with a chap that I met at a event in Dublin Trinity College and who seems like very nice fellow and came up to me one evening and said he wanted we hope to be a writer and he was a fan of my books and he said all the right things basically to flatter me and we ended up forming over over a number of years that started to become I felt somewhat wasn't really built in the way that a friendship should I built a thick from both sides I don't think I was completely innocent in the in the in the affair so to speak and was a person who who desperately wanted to be writer and had talent actually but I started to realize that most of our relationship was built around me reducing him to people or finding ways to get him grants or basically kind of giving a leg up into the industry and it kind of came to a head when evening when he said to me he was going over to London to meet he in fact did get one book published and he was going over to London to meet is that her and I was at the point where I was feeding little bit suspicious of everything that had been going on for a couple of years and I just had to him as people do you know where are you staying even and he said what I'm staying with going to stay with my editor and I've never heard of such a thing you know I've been I've had the same editor for twenty years and he's never invited you to his house for dinner but I haven't Staden guest room and said that strangers have you know not staying hotel and he said no if I figure if I stay with my editor and I get really good friends with her are particularly good friends with our children then I'll never get dropped and in that moment I just went lots of people you telling me for a while this was quite a manipulative person and that moment to the penny dropped and anyways could long story short eventually led me cognitive Morris in this book where I was always a big fan of the talented Mr Ripley books those five books by Patricia Highsmith and I had this idea of ended do kind of Ripley but in writing a young man who has talent he's not absolutely not on talented but in this case in the case of the character in the book has no imagination mm-hmm so he can't come up with his own stories so his idea is to attach himself to more powerful people or to find people to steal stories from in order to to build his career because the only important thing too is it's not just being a writer it's being a famous writer that's what matters to him so it was different books I've written before and I think usually I sometimes think that books are written almost in in response to the previous when you don't want to repeat yourself you try something different and and so I just started off with this guy I thought I wonder how bad I can make you wonder how malevolence I can make them and still keep the reader on his if not on his side one I'm to do more and more bad things when you read the Ripley books you don't really want to get cars because he wants it you don't you don't approve of the things he does but but you do want to see how much worse he can get you know when you read it Hannibal Lecter you one and eating people don't want it to be legend Terry although Hannah's Ivan narrow vegetarian the whole novel just blown them so I wanted to see how far I could take him and still keep the reader on his side least not want the lead reader Dec- view crushed by piano falling out of the sky or something yeah speaking of the Ripley character because about the same time that the book came out there was a big scandal about the crime writer Ha thin had sort of invented lots of things about his his life and your ever asked what was it him I was asked by lots of people but I had never heard of Jay in until a multitude before that scandal happened and the book was already out six months so no it wasn't him but at all but I think people felt it was based on them but the timeline just doesn't make sense right person that was based on was sorry I even go to ask because I don't get an answer so writers writing about other writers an for a long time it seemed like that was a big no no what and changed it is something that the path publishing people have said you know that people don't want to read about writer is but I haven't really written about writers in all the seventeen books if you combine the two so I think it's not unreasonable that I would eventually and I don't think it's even though this book has sat in the publishing industry it's not just about publishing a book about ambition and what we will do to achieve our goals in life and how far we will go and I think it applies probably to do any industry but in terms of writers writing about writing I guess over twenty years I you know I've seen a lot of a lot of people have been a lot of festivals and there's a lot of stories that everybody who's lived any kind of life on your own in your own jobs you you have stories from from it so I tried to get as many of those in as possible just all the all the weird things that happen say if you've got like two or three riders sitting backstage and then the moderator comes in beforehand and says who wants to read first and then everybody looks at each other and goes well who's The star it's all those little moments and the people who will jump in those or there's just there's lots of little fun moments in it I think and I did have fun you know it's not trying to bite the hand feeds me it's it's a loving satire I think because actually I think the publishing industry is is is very honorable and it's full of amazing people but you can have a little bit of fun with it Yeah I mean you mentioned that it was a novel of ambition and we'll get to that later but I was quite interested in 'em you're probably familiar with the writer Joseph Campbell who rose the hero of thousand faces and he argued most popular stories even over thousands of years across cultures chaired a specific formula at the heart of this of your novel at least as I aren't aren't all writers magpies and as such is mar so bad really well I mean the there is I don't really believe in the idea that there are only sort of the seven plots you know that you can only those people are always repeating them everybody who writes novel is coming to it with their own ideas their own inventions their own characters and even if they pick up on themes from other books it's it's still still your own things so I've never really bought that I read a lot on show you all read a lot you know every book I read is is new and different and I was just reading a review if based on I think and so in that way people sometimes take ideas and update them or find new way to tell them yeah reinterpret them and I don't think there's anything wrong with that in terms of delivery ownership literally ownership is really at the center of this in terms of who owns stories if we're sitting backstage and you tell me something that happened to you today but you haven't written down do I have the right to take if it's something amazing that happens something really interesting do I have the right to write that down and it's there's no there's no yes or no answer to that you know I I kind of think of is that if a family member or close friend told me something very personal that was happening to them then I would think that's me being told as as a friend a family member so that's kind of off limits don't several times in the book Morris is asked is challenged by people on his actions on the things that he does he puts up a pretty good defense for himself and that's me as the writer trying to take his part really and say well what is wrong with that really you know in the first the First Section of the book really is is a little bit based on.

"With part of the generation that grew up with girls can do anything I was a mess spice girls fan is a small child and I did feel like I could grow up to do anything and arguably I- I have I've been very lucky to have lots of opportunities and so I have kind of grown ups do anything I've kind of realized didn't introduce is actually so excited by this then I wanted to lose right Oh dear so welcome novel laying welcome Clementine Time Forward End Clinton as a broadcaster in public speaker and a writer and Lizzy is a singer a journalist and a writer so welcome today and the banks the F. Word by Lizzie and fight like a girl by Clementine so back to our Christian goes could do anything but we still in the same place yep I think we're not in the same that we were before girls do anything you know I think that's a big shift but I think maybe it's now moved from goes can do anything to actually trying to tear down the structures that that whole girls back because that girls can do any thing mantra was kind of putting that on the girls individually you know your individual responsibility to get out there and fight the good fight and all that and I think now we've realized actually that there are a lot of structures that that hold girls back from from doing what they want to and from reaching the F. O. Potential and not just I think it's important to take that further not just kind of girls as a hodgepodge grove but particularly girls of color and algae bt girls and non Binary Ryan so there are so many structures now that I think we are looking at whereas before we were saying obvious reason why they can't do anything to see confidence John Thank you and I just wanted to start by thanks so much for having me here it's great to be here sorry about all the Palaver I'd also like to pay my respects to the Manoa of poverty I think I said that correctly I'm sorry if I didn't I apologize and thank you for having me I think that one of the problems has been that the second goals have always been able to do everything and and in fact goals and women have carried the weight of the world on their shoulder is one of the things that infuriates me particularly now that I'm a mother myself and of course like you never know until you become one is just how if you look at the human race is a species whose intent on survival than you need whether or not you want to become a parent yourself really need reproduction of the species and it has been largely overwhelmingly women who have performed that Labor done all of the Labor that's required in the late birth and after birth and in child rearing etc and yet you still hear people saying things like Oh women invented nothing women can't do anything women awake the idea that somehow how everything that women's across all sorts of different backgrounds have had to endure throughout history and people talk about us as being weak is I think one of the the greatest insults so when people say things like girls can do anything but it's just that we don't try hard enough it's obviously like a it's very convenient way to ignore the multitude of structural barriers that all of us and certainly oppress lots of us in ever deeper ways depending on where those structural barriers coming from and also has a problem with the nineteen seventies in the minds of people now who think all of that don young people right to me all the time young men especially who just hate feminism and pull this trick where they try to pretend that they are interested in they're invested in women's rights but it's all been sorted out now so what you're doing of course is advocating for superiority which is what every opponent to any kind of equality in has ever said at any point in history was all been sorted out and now you're just pushing for more with they can point to the legislative changes of the nineteen seventies and say well you've got all of the rights that you need now what what name one right that men have women join have I mean the right to control her reproductive healthcare is a good one but I think that people make the mistake of thinking that legislation like legislative change is the same as social change and that the to necessarily always go hand in hand where social change and the move like that really sometimes social changes much further ahead than legislative change sometimes legislative changes much further ahead than social change so I think that it's it's really about like breaking down people's willful opposition to reality but also I guess like recognize housing that yes goals and women can do anything but what we can only move so far if the race is set against us in the replace Cinderella Joan can be the greatest politician in the world and she is actually just as a side Elliott just conducted a poll on trust and politician was and just into one here it's like when people about the meritocracy and they say oh well if it's just that we're not trying hard enough it's all about merit as if somehow like just classically parliaments all over the world in western societies just stacked to the brim with incredibly mediocre middle aged white men that this is a matter of merit because because men particularly Jio Committal Age Whiteman never have to prove their merit to anyone they never have to justify anything or who they've made a deal with or who they've gone to boarding school with or who they were friends with I uni anyway that's my long winded answer I'll take you and so we're interested in structural change I guess another thing that's changed significantly for generation today is the online world didn't exist in the nineteen seventies right about that and it's positive it's negative so would you like to say something about how it can it positively absolutely yeah I can and very early on I created a campaign in two thousand fifteen called my buddy my terms had no idea that it was going to it did and that was an example I think of of social media being us really positive means and then went on to make real six talk which is a web series around six rowdy education for young people presented by people like Guy Williams who kids think is hilarious so you know I think that social media is a main distribution for really great messages and as a means of two way communication win people really seeking meaningful communication from people that they otherwise wouldn't be able to reach I think that it can be incredibly positive I think it can also be really really positive example Clementine and I admit on twitter so it actually connects particularly feminists right around the world really Ah let's say you just become so connected with this amazing kind of international army of kick ass women so in those ways it can be really positive I know it can also be really really shit yeah I mean I think they can be and I listen I had coffee before the session today and we were talking about how great personally grateful we wear that we didn't have social media when we were in school because I think the ways that social media can be used to believe methods that high school is us against each other because they try and use it yeah steroid message therapy yeah I actually read where they just like shit talking you for however many hundreds of messages and of course as adults we like what to go do something because most of it's just nonsense but then I think if I were fourteen or fifteen year old girl Oh and I was being picked on at school at least when I was fourteen fifteen year old girl being picked on at school I could go home at the end of the day and just listen to my music we'll take cassette player are and shut it off but now you don't have that option to be able to escape from it and I think that that's really frightening which is why it's so important to like comprehensively talk to children about empathy and kindness and respect and how to navigate these because on the other hand social media can be such a force for good and you know you look at someone like Greta who is leading a climate change revolution around the world and she's sixteen years old is using social media to do that or you know the fact that like not just women but other marginalized groups can connect each other and they can by pass out of the traditional gatekeepers that have prevented them from being able to organize together and they can really build incredibly world changing movement like the black box matter moved and has been extraordinarily supported by Social Media you know the opposition to the Dakota pipeline was that was organized online the Arab Spring and I think that when you look at it like that and you can see it the potential that it has to actually create social change I mean hell look even men's rights organizes can connect online these days you really organized anything to well they dated a woman for that Mitch and in your book the Canadian don't be that guy so it seems to have had some success I'd like to know more about it yeah with an anti sexual harassment campaign that Canada Canada's done a lot of good social campaigns around this sort of issue and they don't be that guy campaign a few years ago whereas basically poster campaign I think they had social media aspects to it as well all depicted men either sexually harassing women more benignly sexually them just like ignoring it when their friends did it and the message was don't be that guy and it it really did have account remember statistics off the top of my head Hussein they abuse statistics team yeah they they dropped significantly yeah and again Louisiana we're talking in the car on the way here about those situations way you've kind of dealt with what we've personally experienced sexual harassment and there's been other men around kind of just looked away they've ignored it and it sets on percent of men are good men and they would never ever do anything to hurt a woman and firstly that statistics bullshit because it's never been tested but also it's just like demonstrably not true the men who turn away from it might not be doing the harassing themselves might be groping a woman but the moment that they like oh no problem and also because I live in Patriarchy Patriarchy pits me a man against other men I recognized there's a threat here for me to speak up against this man so I will absolve myself from having to be involved and this is what feminism is trying to change this is too hard to say either minist- you both talk about this I think in you yeah I'm books I mean I've I've actually I wrote a chapter about all the am the other labels people get themselves in the linguistic gymnastics they perform like humanist guys hold movement called humanism that means something I mean I think that partly it's because feminism as a as a label has been dragged through the mud but I don't think that's accidental you know I think feminism has been gene is profoundly threatening movement.
