"How do you want to be known? I've got a couple more books. I. GotTa. Hit before offense. Blooded Thunder by Hampton sides. Goals soldiers by Hampton sides and Hell Hound on his trail by Hampton sides they're just spectacular so good off. So remember so it's funny you say that because this may sound a little morbid some your readers but I've actually thought about what I want my funeral to be lives, and if my children are to hold up about having my children play revelation song by Kerry, Job Having all my favorite hymns. At an having a stunningly powerful Gospel message because if you really. The possible said. You know either what we believe is central to successful live or where the grace to fools. So. If you really aren't just doing the cultural posturing that I think a lot of Americans have done until recently announced people like that are fading away to reveal the people really do. Believe in Christianity then its cord everything. So you know anybody their Lou believes that would WanNa Gospel message saying that Christ is the way to have A. Sequel to this life that's a lot more important a lot longer than this life is and I would actually want my funeral to really talk about me not at all. Basically have a powerful musical. Part of it and and then a powerful Gospel message so that you basically it it's like Cs. Lewis. Said in mere Christianity when he covered the great sin chapter, which is about pride pride being the root of all. Bad Behavior in San is that the humble man? The meek man as talked about the term of amount is not some. Apologetic Owens me kind of weak person that you don't want to be around the truly humble man is the or woman is the man or woman who? Really didn't think about themselves at all. They think about other people and they're interested in other people and they have a real enthusiasm for supporting giving back and being into other people. There's nothing wrong with having an agenda and having thanks you want to succeed at and contribute and achieve in your life. But you should take what you do with the highest level of seriousness and commitment. But take yourself not seriously at all. Yeah and don't think about yourself whenever possible because the more someone thinks about themselves. The more selfish in the more unhappy they're going to be. It's kind of a psychological truism the more you're thinking about the world around you in the other people around you. And being a positive contributor to your your family, your community, your state, and your country. The more productive and fulfilling life. You'RE GONNA lead. Yes. Oh I. I wouldn't really want to talking about me at all. I want people coming back going wow what a great service that is, and whether they're a faith Bible believing Christian or not they come and go. That was super impressive. How important that whole? Message was articulated and laid out there for consideration. Yeah. Well, that know that surprises me. I got I got to end it like this. Is Pretty Cool George because you know. The political circles is all about networking or whatever, and just so that the listener knows this is the first time I have ever met George in my life and you're. Seeing across from someone who? I don't know you because you're a celebrity. Honestly I don't know who you are because your grandfather was the governor that's I..

"We'll just we'll turn notes on some of our favorite books but what give you a list I don't care how long? Okay. For one three what what should I put my library it's it's going to be long I'll try not to bore your readers. Edmund Morris's Teddy Roosevelt trilogy is a must read. Robert Caro's fourth volume, and hopefully eventually five volume biography of Lyndon. Johnson's must run on an evaluation of May. Do this forgive me listener because on the ones I've read. You. Learn LBJ wow. Now there's a Texas Titan for some of the right reasons and a lot of the wrong. You know whatever the case be the guy was as a great read in the thing about all of care I'm reading powerbroker about Robert Moses Stuck in the middle of it. Right man. Jump into a Carro biography man, it's. If did. Research incredibly. But yes, W. Mere Christianity by CS. Lewis have prodigal God and counterfeit gods by Tim Keller. No ordinary time in team of rivals by Carl. Goodwin. Citizens of London by Lynn. Empires of the C. I can't read the author's name right now but it's about the autumn in Western civilization naval wars of the sixteenth. Century. That's a good start. Okay. Okay. Excellent. Obviously the throw away the Bible, of course. I'll. I would definitely include those titles in the shouts at one question. I love to ask to kind of put a put a on things and again Georgia cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am. Also I appreciate you come Jason, you're the one making all the effort I'm just running running my mouth. Well, here's the deal like I told you this is. Very selfish. It's a selfish passion project you and I share the fact that we like to self educate the podcast is my selfish way getting alert about people and how to make myself better. So you definitely helped me off the day one question that I like to ask and Stephen Covey's seven habits of highly effective people. You know there's that one deal where. He's walking by hears music coming from a church. He walks realize stumble into the funeral you realize that you're at your own theme. As one of those moments with the author does that thing where they say okay. Now that you've got yourself set down and you're reading stock breeding and really think about this most people just skim over it. That's of those that I actually going back to eighty Stanley I would read seven habits and read that Chapter Ami Stanley said go back and read that can stop actually goes that exercise. What Covey does, he says, what do you want to be? How do you want to be known? He waits all when when that's it when your race has been run in. So for someone like yourself, who man you know? Has, done so much. What do you?.

"Worked in sector. Say. Uber's office with me. When he will burgers deputy sector, he was chief legal counsel. EAGLEBERGER. He's very capable guy. So I know he's Doing the best he can. But this is a multi decade initiative and effort and the other thing I would point out is from an India standpoint. We tend to not function. Well, we only function from A. A world view of real politic or when we only function from a world view of morality democracy, you've got to blend of both. In while we want trade and commerce to flow evermore freely between us and Indian WE WANNA get into security arrangements with them and sell them weapons systems to. Protect themselves against the Pakistanis in the and the Chinese. While maintaining religious those countries as well. We also have to push back a little bit hard on India on human rights, sex trafficking, slavery, and religious freedom because mody. The current head of India is very anti Christian and varied non liberal from a religious standpoint in India has more slaves than any other country in the world and we. Justifiably loathe hate the evil of slavery in this country in the leg seats left us. But. The reality is there's more slaves in the world today than there ever have been before. Oh. Yeah. There's forty million slaves around the world twenty million of them are in India. So we gotta work through that So it's not it's not slammed on their. Things we have to work through and we can't be all realpolitik and also interested in. We can't be all morality and breaching we've got to somehow blend the same make progress with India on all fronts. Yeah and that's one of the things that is I mean we see it firsthand now such a challenge about America being the global leader, the the lone superpower where they're going to call it is that the both the double edged sword of America is that whatever your number one priority is in your in your orbit, you can come to America and screaming shot and make it a bunch of other people's number one priority to try to. With the but that doesn't work around the whole world where you know like again China says, yeah, we don't care what you think about this matter. This is what we're doing. Sit Down and deal with it. You know. So he does present some challenges for sure. Okay now. One of the things I would like to ask you because. You get to view and get you know leaders across the globe. You know your leader self you get to interact with them. So whenever you hear the word leader. Who Comes. To Mind And why?.

So we can't really count them anymore. So we're going to have to really lean hard on. Japan and I would say that the English Commonwealth and some new friends on the world stage that can be positive actors in India being the first and foremost in my view. Yeah. Of beat me to the punch on that one because that was one thing that I want to bring up I've never understood why that was not a more focused relationship I know that in the business world you know. The late Great Jack Welsh, he realized the value India waiting for anybody else did as it relates to. Human.

"What do you do whenever it's you alone? Against, the wall, trying to figure it out kind of what is Your Strategy Ben? Franklin. Had His. Is Pros and cons list that you know that we use. Leaders had their their methodologies. What are some of the things that you've don't you find yourself in those those those type situations. Prayer Number One. You know this is gonNA sound not overly compelling, but it's pretty robotic. I just keep going. Yeah I don't sit around suck my phone. We're feel sorry for myself. Say. Whoa is me what am I gonNa do I just keep moving? You know the old cliche it's harder to see if if a harsh moving target. So. If if you get out of the ditch, you don't remain in the ditch if you keep moving, you're harder to take out. and. Four motion is a very positive thing. What did Winston Churchill say you're in Hell keep going. I would. I think some people are gifted with a inherently optimistic constitution in some people are. More. Prone to depression even clinical depression for some people. This is harder to do than than than it is to talk about and some people are just naturally wired in that particular way. But if you create habits that allow you to forge ahead under all circumstances, it becomes natural like breathing for you as opposed to overthinking it or over. But I I would also point out my firm is called Annandale capital and it's named after the region. Scotland that Robert, the Bruce King of Scots was And most people don't realize the name, braveheart. The movie that won. Best? Picture. For the word that the nickname braveheart really wasn't William. Walls. It was Robert the Bruce that was his nickname and there's this legend that when he was it at the depth of despair halfway through his almost twenty year quest to throw the English out of. Out of Scotland becoming a scholar and I'm half English and half Scottish Scotch. Irish. So it's very personal to me. That he's in some cave freezing to death and hiding from his enemies. There's all these enemies trying to hunt him down and kill him and he watches a spider very, very methodically build this intricate beautiful perfect web. To trap the fighters spiders food on into live on and all this kind of stuff and it inspired him that great works take a great amount of time. And if you stay in the ditch or you quit or you don't forge ahead, you never get there and eventually he did get there. But I think that's what a lot of young people especially today they're so impatient for big things and big success and most things that turn out to be big endeavors or successes lot. Take a very long period of time and a lot of commandment. So. You have to stay the course and I. There's this crowd. Here's his. Quote from one of my favorite Westerns. Call the outlaw Josey Wales were. His his native American friends said. We endeavoured to persevere. and. That's a good thing for every day in life and every your life we we're going to endeavour to persevere consistently Amen and by the way because I know you spent a lot of time in DC did you happen to be at the national prayer breakfast went Randall Wallace, was the speaker..

"It was nature is kind of how I'm wired and you sometimes you see those kind of traits skip generations like. My. Generation. In both lots my family were very driven and competitive. My parents generation worth more just kind of. And in call and I'm back to the driven. Wanting to make things happen of persona in my children who are. Thank God. All lovely. Lovely. Great. People. But they're they're more laid back about life and one enjoy life in are quite as. Hyper maybe. Thank you way to put it. But also My family has I think tried to have the old kind of Wasp Cliche of you don't talk about yourself that much. So instances like this or kind of hard bought the right way. And you're humble and you talk about other people, you don't talk about yourself So. Trying to figure out who you are where you're going takes time and they were super modest about the kind of circumstances I grew up in. So I had no idea that I was born on third base. You. Know The cliche where a lot of people say they think they hit a triple but they they're born with their base. Well, I was born on third base. The wildlife I like to look at it is I st mealy stole home, and then the next time I got up to bat headed out of the park and in. So where you come from in life does affect who you are and how tough you are or how soft you are these kind of things. But the day you're the one responsible for what turns out and you can have people turn out to have super productive lives from very modest upbringings from from a brings that maybe aren't quite as modest as. To give a brilliant last story of overcoming adversity and everything. But having said that my dad's people were professionals that were lawyers doctors.

Has India's Narendra Modi gone too far with controversial new citizenship law?

The Current

08:53 min | 2 years ago

Has India's Narendra Modi gone too far with controversial new citizenship law?

"In this bill they are targeting a community without naming it. It violates the basic structure took the constitution divisive and exclusive for more than a week. People in India have been in the streets protesting against Winston new law that fast tracks Indian citizenship for migrants. Except if they're Muslim critics say the law discriminates against Muslims and that it undermines India's history as a secular nation. I'm Laura Lynch and this is the current weekly. People in India are divided about the new law as we discovered in the streets of New Delhi Natural India because where else Lugo Muslims have an Islamic country to go Christians any Russian country to go for the Hindus. Will this and the seats. They had nowhere else to go. But for India and now India has has made it possible for them to have legitimate citizenship rights. This is the sort of majoritarian agenda that is taking place in this country right now and the real failure. Is that all the citizens at large as we designed by helplessly as we see targeting the minorities of this country just by protests intensified across the country earlier this week after police stormed to universities to try to stop demonstrations through tests across India after action against wounds at Jamaica's the illegal Muslim university from Sam the by Johnny Gert Chen Ni- students standing in solidarity with their colleagues to understand more about what's going on. I spoke to Arpaio Sherwani. She's the senior on your editor for the wire. India's largest independent online news site. People very very angry I was a million Slavia. The university one of the university that has been indirect. Target of police. Brutality is I was reporting from there I spoke with a couple of dozen people and they told me the stories disgust and atrocities that the police committed on these students. They were they. Were assuming that maybe you know by this heavy massive. Crackdown dare going to break the spirit of students but I think it is going to have country the impact on the students bodies because there are no protest all over India led by Muslims slim's but there are people from different religions all religions who were protesting against this anti constitution law irrespective of faith irrespective of religion irrespective of our political affiliations. All over India. There is no major city left which is not good protesting. How many people in India are Muslim so there are about fourteen percent people as per the two thousand eleven census about two hundred million Muslims living in the moment and tell us what exactly is the citizenship amendment? ACT The law intense to make it easier for non Muslim immigrants from India. Three Muslim-majority neighbors namely Pakistan Afghanistan and Bangladesh to become citizens of Indem so if you entered India before December thirty first two thousand fourteen on legal or illegal documents. And if you have been living here for six years you are entitled for Indian citizenship but there is a condition for it so you may be living Annandale for six years as you. You should have entered India before December. Thirty first thousand fourteen. But you should not be a follower of Islam so you you only entitled to get that doesn't ship ship. Only maybe belonging to any other religion. Why why are? Muslims voted excluded because the government is giving his argument that they I want to give shelter to persecuted minorities in its neighborhood because they're basing their argument on assumption that these Muslim majority countries. He's had nothing against Muslims themselves because they are Muslim countries so the only people who are being persecuted there are non Muslims. This argument when they want to they want to give to the people. Okay so why is that threatening today. Muslims in India right so there is one thing which is against the law. But I'll tell you that this is not the full story. This is not the full picture so the thing is that people are arguing Stefan. It violates the basic structure of constitution that Indian constitution cannot discriminate with its citizens on the basis of village. And so if you cannot discriminate against your citizens you cannot give citizenship based on religion. Now well you asked me this. The reason that people street this is only the food picture is that is a another scheme of the government of Indiana the program that they have brought in the northeast provinces province of India. This is a Sam they have already implemented the scheme into skull and our see National Register sure of citizens that every citizen is liable to prove that they are Indian citizen. Not just they are citizen. They were born here. The their father was born here. Their grandfather was born here. And what's what's wrong with that now as you know that majority of Indians live below poverty. Line a millions and millions of people who do not have a single document to prove that they were born. You're not have birth certificate. They have no certificate at all to prove proved that the Indian citizens so this is against the war of this country so that so let me just okay but you just said that it is against the poor. That doesn't mean necessarily that. It's targeting Muslims right so assume that after NRC's conducted they may be two two hundred million people who are who may not be able to prove that they are Indian citizens out of h all non-muslims apply for Indian citizenship under Citizenship Amendment Law except Muslims. You're a journalist in India. You're you're a citizen of India but you're also Muslim yourself. How are you personally feeling about this? The law you know. I'll tell you that as a citizen of India as journalists and as well as as a as a Muslim I feel. This is absolutely heartbreaking. So suppose if there are thirty five people working here in my organization only I will be asked to prove my citizenship. Only I will be the one who's not able to prove citizenship. I will be going to the detention engine cap. Cam and just thirty people will be will be eligible for citizenship. My grandfather my father. Both of them rejected wanted Pakistan the country which was being built in in in the name of religion because they trusted secular India more densely Pakistan and after seven seven decades. They are being told that you're not Indian enough. But how could this new law affect you. Because I'm not able to provide documents for you. Is that not true. I'm saying I don't know they might reject these documents on the basis of anything. We have this example of a Sam in front of us that if even if there is a slight spelling mistake if there is anything there are people who were serving in an army a gentleman. He served for four decades and he could not provide documents documents under an artsy. You mentioned detention camps. That are those actually being built. They are being to be already have a few thousand people living in innocent in detention camps view India. A new normal today any TV stockton sheltie reports from this massive center. It's India's first attention action center which will house lacks of people who will be declared stateless after various appeals. And it's been all close to ten years that are people living in contention camps under UN human conditions that has nobody from outside. WHO's allowed to go in and check? How exactly they are? They're doing inside There are reports that even in in major city is planning to build these detect detention camps are A. How likely is it that the law is going to be challenged? In the Supreme Court there are Hordes of people so they may be one petition safer Muslims. They may be one petition from say Christians but this is going to be largely the civil society groups That are going to the Supreme Court and I have full faith on India's Supreme Court India's judiciary that they will strike down at one glance because there's does nothing that suggests that this will pass the scrutiny off the court with how long will that take for a for a court to hear the case and issue a decision that is actually part of it. Not that you know the time between now and when we finally have destruct down they may be a lot of damage that we will already see happening on the streets of
