"There's, there's a great quote from Arthur Miller when he was talking about the cruise. Title, and he's talking about the dynamic in the in the Salem witch trials. Why wasn't that people rushed to cues other people of being witches, and he said, naturally, the best proof of the sincerity of your confession was your naming others whom you had seen in the devils company and so as person after person gets accused of being a witch to try to survive they would not only confess which they were required to do, but the name other people in, you know, as, as also which is in order to fully absolve themselves and, and just to survive. And so that's a rather lethal example of the kinds of social pressure that we're thinking about it. You can find more familiar examples in the red scare of the nineteen fifties or the enforcement of masculinity. Norms amongst young men or binge drinking on college campuses. I don't know about you, but I wasn't in a hurry to say to my friends, maybe we shouldn't drink so much. We really want to do this. I would be risking. You know, some sort of reputation loss. I would look look really uncall- in front of my friends, and I think I really would have I don't. Think it would have just broken the spell. Absolutely. So what is there any do we know of anything that seems if you wanted to break something like this up, or, or do anything about this? Do we have any option? Yeah. I think that if we're trying to avoid pluralistic ignorance or unpopular norms. What have you trying to get accurate information is helpful sticking to your guns, just saying what you really think is, is, is critical, and that can be your contribution to not play into the dynamic. But I think what this research on false enforcement shows is that it's also a deeply social phenomenon. You know, people are falling in line in part because of their fear of other people's judgments. So can you somehow help remove that fear of judgment from other people that would be another way that you could help you could encourage other people to share their own personal views, even if they, you know, are not the majority view, and, you know, don't criticize them when someone takes a truly tough. Position, even if you disagree with them. And even if you voice, your disagreement to them to support that they did speak out. These are some of the, you know, these are some of the techniques that have been shown to help with group think is, is to is to try to encourage other people to descend from the majority and to also surface devil's advocate style arguments. You know you can cloak your descent in maybe I'm just playing devil's advocate here. But I wonder if this might be the case or I wonder what this kind of person would say in this situation, and now you get yourself a little bit of cover to say what might be the truth, that everyone's afraid to say, like in situations stonewall their like we'll just get arrested. We'll just beat up. I mean that's just what's going to happen. Or there's the other thing to do happen, all throughout social movements to maybe we should meet in private and develop a, you know, a safe space literally, where we can not be suffered punishment for expressing what we actually think. And then that can be uploaded into. A a movement. You know. What's interesting because that sort of dynamic of a small Kadre of true believers coming together in a dense sub network, a tightly connected group, where they can reaffirm one another's views and create a strong minority. That's a force that can both destroy unpopular norm. But also create one in the first place because that's a recipe for creating social majorities. So when we studied this in a computational model that we conducted, we've found a few things where we're critical to growing the pattern of unpopular norms..

Tony Awards Preview

"Hi, everybody. It's Peter Travers than welcome to our special popcorn Tony award show. Now, I've gotta say, before we get into the nominees about who will win and who should win. This is been the most amazing year in Broadway history. It has made over two billion dollars at the box office that never happened. And why is it? I think it's Hollywood heat everybody from TV from movies from us. It wants to be on Broadway. They wanna be on that stage. You got this year. Kylo Ren and driver on Broadway. You have Walter, white Bryan, Cranston, there, Jeff Daniels who played Harry done in too, dumb and dumber movies. They're all fighting to be best, dramatic actor, what kind of stuff is happening on Broadway. Well, let's start with the major categories, and I'm gonna start with best musical the nominees are ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Beetlejuice remember that movie Haiti's town, the prom, and Tootsie. You remember that movie too? Well. I think the winner is Haiti's town. It's a rigid. It's basically the myth of Orpheus ritzy, but it's got a score by a woman named Naess Mitchell who doesn't come from Broadway, at all and kind of revolutionizes it. So what would happen what could spoil the fun? There's a little musical called the prom. It's really it's totally original. It's about these bunch of Broadway veterans, and they're really hard bitten, and they're not getting any press, and they decide to go to Indiana and help, a lesbian high school student take her girlfriend to the prom. That's it. How good is it? It's really good. And in terms of the Hollywood connection, Ryan Murphy, went to see it fell in love with it, and he's making a movie of it. So how about that? Then we have best play the Ferryman choirboy, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus. What the constitution means to me an ink. I'm telling you people, the Ferryman is got to be a movie soon. It's an Irish play. It's about the troubles, and in on a stage. We get to see an entire family deal with violence deal with their own feuds. We've got babies onstage. We've got live alive goose. We have everything there's nothing like I don't think there's any competition for it at all except there was a snub, the most successful play in Broadway history. That's not a musical is to kill among bird, and for some reason, the Tony nominee said, let's not nominated what I want. Answer on that one best revival of a play. Arthur, Miller's all my sons the boys in the band, burn this torch song and the Waverley gallery. I think Arthur Miller's all my sons which brought a net. Bending back to Broadway is a show that he wrote in one thousand nine hundred forty seven a bout a guy who was manufacturing airplane, parts and was to rush to do it. And so the planes crashed and killed pilots during the war. We live in the world of Boeing. Now, how timely could this be? So I think that's really up there. And I in terms of seeing a show that by playwright Arthur Miller who says, let's deal with the world we live in this one really, really did it then we have bible of musical. This is easy, because there's only two there's Oklahoma Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and kiss me. Kate. Of course, they were both movies. We saw Oklahoma with Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones in the fifties. But kiss me, Kate is done in a traditional way. Kelli o'hara's in it, Oklahoma is directed by guide named Daniel fish who find darkness. We're Rogers and Hammerstein only found light. It's a revelation to watch this. It's not the Oklahoma you've ever remembered, and it sung in the kind of country western way, look, if you ever get to see this on Broadway or win a tours get there get there quick. Okay. Okay. Best actor in a musical. And so, we'll do alphabetically Brooks as Mantas in the prom, Derrick Baskin and ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Alex Brightman and Beetlejuice. Remember when Michael Keaton had their part, Damon down, oh in Rogers and Hammerstein, Oklahoma. And send Tino fun Tanna into okay? The favorite is Tino, Tanna who is playing the part that destined Hoffman immortalized in the movie in the nineteen eighties. But what Centeno Tanna doesn't remember him on TV in crazy ex girlfriend like I'm saying everybody's from TV, or he does so much more. He sings as a man sees a woman, he does physical comedy does everything but stand on his hat. And I say, you know, who's out there that can spoil the win for Santino Tanna. And my answer is no one because this is one of the great performances you'll ever see on a musical, comedy stage. He's the winner. Best actress in a play Benning in Arthur, Miller's all my sons, Laura, Donnelly, in the Ferryman. Elaine may in the Waverley gallery, Janet mcteer in Bernhardt hamlet, Laurie Metcalf in Hillary Clinton, and Heidi Shreck in what the constitution means to me. Okay. Elaine may doesn't win this Tony. You're going to hear from me. She's eighty seven years old. She's returned to Broadway. After decades to play the part of a woman fighting Alzheimer's, and everything is no perfect about what she's done. She started with Mike Nichols doing comedy. She was starring in movies of like the new leaf directed things like the heartbreak kid. She's just one of the best actors I've ever seen anywhere. And if she loses and, you know, I feel bad for an bending because if Elaine may wasn't here this year, I think she would be the winner, but come on. Attention must be paid people. And I also wanna talk about a snub how. How does Glenda Jackson who won the Tony last year for three women returned to Broadway as King Lear? We talk about the age of hashtag metoo and time's up Glenda. Jackson is playing king. Lear gets rave reviews and the Tony committee says we're not gonna nominate her now. No, we're paying attention. And we're gonna come back and get you our best actress in a musical. Stephanie, j block in the share show Caitlyn Kanoun in the prom Beth level, in the prom, Eva nobles, ADA in Haiti's town, and Kelley O'Hara and kiss me cake. Stephanie j block who is that theater veteran is playing share in a way that sometimes she's more share than share. You might think this is just an escapist show thing to know she finds the character of who she is share shows up at this show often does numbers with her, and pus share. There's who's a bigger Hollywood. Name who is coming to Broadway with the show about herself. It takes three actresses to play here. But Stephanie j block plays the central one. And she plays the hell out of it. So she has just got to win. I'm sorry, people. All right. Best featured actress in a play for new of Flanagan in the Ferryman seal, you keep. And Bolger into kill a Mockingbird. Christine Nelson, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Julie white and Gary sequel to Titus andronicus and Ruth Wilson and King Lear people if you see if you see to kill among bird, and you should seal, you Keenan Bolger is very controversial because she's playing scout scout in the book and in the movie remember is in eight or nine year old girl. A C Keenan Bolger is in her forties. And yet, what she finds in this character who grew up to be Harper who wrote this novel is the heart and soul of the peace. So I'm telling you people this, this has got to happen. See Keenan Bolger remember that name best featured actor in a play birdie Carville and ink, Robin to hasten boys in the band getting Glick into kill a monkey bird, Brandon your Ranna wits in burn this Benjamin Walker in Arthur Miller's. All my sons birdie, Carville in ink. Those of us, those of you who actually went to Broadway couple of years ago and saw of any kind of a musical where you were shocked at a man playing a woman, you saw birdie, Carville in Matilda, and he played this woman, this horrible headmistress, and now he's playing Rupert Murdoch. So every who in Hollywood, who in politics would anyone hasn't been in an Rupert Murdoch publication or paper and who hasn't been rolled over the coals in it that performance and in London when he played it in one and Olivia ward, he had to play it in front of Rupert Murdoch. It's just an incredible job. I wanna talk a little about the snubs in this category. The non nominees there isn't actor named Bengal Arghanab into Killa mugging bird who plays Tom Robinson. He is the black man who is on trial for raping a white woman, a crime never committed. And he's defended. By Jeff Daniels. Atticus Finch when Aaron Sorkin adapted Harper Lee's novel to the stage. He did it so that he could expand the role of the black characters as he did here. And again, the Tony committee, decided only to nominate the white actors from tequila, Mockingbird ignoring the two black actors who are just brilliant in their roles. You people you're going to get called on the carpet. You need to all right? Best featured actress in a musical, Lilli Cooper in Tootsie, amber, gray and Haiti's town Sarah, styles Tootsie, alley stroke, or in Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and Mary, Testa in Rogers, and Hammerstein Oklahoma there, something totally remarkable that happened this year in stroke, and Oklahoma. This is a woman who when she was two years old was in an automobile crash, and was never able to walk again. And now on Broadway playing eight oh Anne who is like the sexual. Time bomb in Oklahoma, the one who sings, I can't say, no, the part went to Allie. Stroke, she plays it in a wheelchair and you would think that's inspiring enough. But when you watch her play at you, forget the wheelchair exists, and you're watching her take over the stage like Dolly Parton. She, it's just an amazing thing to watch and it works on so many levels. So I wanna be there when she wins that Tony, and I want to be standing up and applauding and going Bravo. She deserves all right. Best featured actor in a musical Andre shields in Haiti town and a groups Luccin. That's a good name into Patrick page in Haiti's town germy, pope in into proud the life and times of the temptations and Ephraim Sykes ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations, the favorite, the one, I think will win is under the shields and Haiti's town. He's seventy three years old. He stands on that stage is the narrator in like a silver suit. In total control of body and every movement and pulls you in till you're memorized. Your mesmerizing you not take your eyes off of hundred shields. This is a veteran actor who needs to get this Tony. But what if he didn't who would go to there's a young actor named Jeremy pope who plays Eddie kendricks in the into proud the life and times of the temptations? And who does he's playing a difficult man. One of the most difficult of the temptations. But one of the most talented as well. He's also nominated this year as best actor in a in a play in choir, boy, this is to me, the brightest newcomer that you will see on the stage and you're going to see him everywhere, stage movies television. It's just the beginning. So if you get to see this, you're going to be able to tell your friends, I was there win. Okay. Best director of a play Rupert Gould for Inc. Sam Mendes for the Ferryman Bartlett. Fair for to kill a mocking bird Ivo von Hosver for network, and George C Wolfer Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Sam Mendis in the Ferryman this play. Does a job on stage that equal to his first movie which was American Beauty, which you may remember won the best picture? Oscar and once Mendis the Oscar as best director.

"And I, I started to see these headlines about the gut microbiome, you know, and how these bacteria and other organisms that live in our guts provide whole array of services. And that was just kind of mind blowing to me because I had already realized that individual plants or collectives. And then I was like learning like everybody else that we are collectives and this notion that I operate independently of the world. Like I'm the only one who feels the effect of by decisions that was just out of the water, but in I just didn't have the biology chops to really make sense of the stuff I was reading in the pay in the newspapers, you know? So I went on this personal study of microbiology to understand myself or end that man how they are mean I am. I am then. So when you say you went on this. Personal, nutty. Like you went back to school. I did in middle age and I'm telling you it was not as it was like, really, pretty shocking. You know, I was an English major in the Reagan era. Got sick. So going back to school to study biology with no science background was a real leap for me, but I ended up writing about that experience of what it was like to learn as well as the microbiology I learned. So it's kind of like what I learned and what it was like learning it. And I wrote about it because I really wanted to share the do ability of a nonscientific person, a person who doesn't think they have the science gene actually learn enough people to make some decisions about the Rhone bodies in there and how they interact their environment based on science, it really is empowering, isn't it taking the time to study these things and to understand them at a level of depth? That's just even a little bit beyond. I think superficiality totally. It's totally empowering in. It also leads to, I think, to a kind of responsibility. Now, if this quote above my desk that I've been keeping around from Arthur Miller, I'm gonna paraphrase for you, but it's the apple cannot be stuck back on the tree of knowledge. Once we begin to see we're doomed to see more, not less. And so that's what the science going back to school and studying micro-biology. She was like for me, it just it it. I made a commitment in a way I'm doomed to to seem more. And with that comes a kind of responsibility in how I would interact with my own body and also with the greater in migrating environment. So before we get into some of the like nuts and bolts and interesting tidbits that you learned along the way about microbiology, I would love to talk a little bit more about the experience of going back to school because you know, I am enduring this right now. I took ten years off between starting a PHD and dropping out and deciding to go back switch majors because I was working on a PHD more in the neurosciences at now. I am studying clinical psychology and it is a bit I, that is not easy earning how to academically a hate it, don't you hate it?.

"Tremendous. And you know, it's also important to contextualize it in the sense that you know being a great playwright at that moment was huge. A new great play was an enormous event and. There was a kind of star status that was given to you then. But I think that in some ways, the the ways in which he was worn down by life, the ways in which he was disappointed in life, kind of made him a more beautiful person actually, in some ways, I mean, not a perfect person, but being burnt out the way that he was various times in his life. I think kind of softened his edges in a way we're talking with filmmaker Rebecca Miller. She's the writer director of Arthur Miller writer. Your mom died in two thousand and two, and she led an unbelievable life. How would you characterize her relationships your father? Well, my mother was like a kind of unique. She was really a unique person. She you, nobody could imitate her accent quite wasn't exactly Austrian. It wasn't exactly French. It was its own accent, and she had. A wave being that was both really positive and it Bulent. But she also had darkness in her, and I think that they. Gave each other a lot of space to be themselves and to be. Not ideal. You know, I mean, I think these two people who were Dulce when they got together, they had lived lives. They had both been kind of burnt pretty badly by various things and they wanted to try. That's what my mom puts it. You know, like I asked her, did you always think he'd be married to Arthur? She said, oh, no, but we were willing to try, you know. Cause for them, things had not worked out in various ways, and they were just like, well, let's try what's the worst thing that can happen. It's not gonna work, you know, and there's something that was, I think actually great because it was so not a fairytale. It was the opposite of very, it was like to adult people saying, okay, let's try your parents had a son, and you have a brother named Daniel, and that was a very complicated part of your father story. Ganyu was born with down syndrome. What did you know about Daniel as you were growing up and how is your relationship to him change since then? Well, over the last I guess twenty years are. So I've had a very. Fun relationship with him and a very easy one. When I was a little kid. You know, my parents were, it wasn't easy for them to talk about, and I think that that there was a lot of probably embittered, I don't really know about a decision which was culturally pretty common, but still fraught and. The decision to put him in an institution not to not to keep home, but. As I say in the documentary, weirdly, I I know much less about what was going on in their minds than I might because I didn't get to talk to them about it. Think it's fair to say that this would have been the hardest thing to talk about with your dad. I did leave. It would would have been, yeah. I mean, it was for me probably. It was the hardest thing for me as much for you. Why did you find it difficult to bring up if you're trained not to bring something up for really long time, then it's hard to bring up. Yeah, if that's what your culture is in within a family as a filmmaker and screenwriter you probably think a lot about what your characters want, what their motivations might be. Now, having made this documentary about your dad, do you have a better understanding of what his motivations were, what he wanted from life? What were the things that drove him as an artist. I think he was really primarily driven by curiosity and love of people that the anomalies in their characters and how they were the person who was both could be a good person and do bad things or do or how people were morally ambivalent. You know, he never tried to teach people how to live. It's funny. He thought of that you moralist. But I think if you really unpack his work, he's he's asking questions about what it is to live a moral life, but he's not really giving anyone advice. You know, I think it's more like you saying, let's examine ourselves in a real way. Rebecca Miller is the writer director of Arthur Miller writer, Rebecca, thanks much for coming on the show and catching up. Thank you so much.

"Tremendous. And you know, it's also important to contextualize it in the sense that you know being a great playwright at that moment was huge. A new great play was an enormous event and. There was a kind of star status that was given to you then. But I think that in some ways, the the ways in which he was worn down by life, the ways in which he was disappointed in life, kind of made him a more beautiful person actually, in some ways, I mean, not a perfect person, but being burnt out the way that he was various times in his life. I think kind of softened his edges in a way we're talking with filmmaker Rebecca Miller. She's the writer director of Arthur Miller writer. Your mom died in two thousand and two, and she led an unbelievable life. How would you characterize her relationships your father? Well, my mother was like a kind of unique. She was really a unique person. She you, nobody could imitate her accent quite wasn't exactly Austrian. It wasn't exactly French. It was its own accent, and she had. A wave being that was both really positive and it Bulent. But she also had darkness in her, and I think that they. Gave each other a lot of space to be themselves and to be. Not ideal. You know, I mean, I think these two people who were Dulce when they got together, they had lived lives. They had both been kind of burnt pretty badly by various things and they wanted to try. That's what my mom puts it. You know, like I asked her, did you always think he'd be married to Arthur? She said, oh, no, but we were willing to try, you know. Cause for them, things had not worked out in various ways, and they were just like, well, let's try what's the worst thing that can happen. It's not gonna work, you know, and there's something that was, I think actually great because it was so not a fairytale. It was the opposite of very, it was like to adult people saying, okay, let's try your parents had a son, and you have a brother named Daniel, and that was a very complicated part of your father story. Ganyu was born with down syndrome. What did you know about Daniel as you were growing up and how is your relationship to him change since then? Well, over the last I guess twenty years are. So I've had a very. Fun relationship with him and a very easy one. When I was a little kid. You know, my parents were, it wasn't easy for them to talk about, and I think that that there was a lot of probably embittered, I don't really know about a decision which was culturally pretty common, but still fraught and. The decision to put him in an institution not to not to keep home, but. As I say in the documentary, weirdly, I I know much less about what was going on in their minds than I might because I didn't get to talk to them about it. Think it's fair to say that this would have been the hardest thing to talk about with your dad. I did leave. It would would have been, yeah. I mean, it was for me probably. It was the hardest thing for me as much for you. Why did you find it difficult to bring up if you're trained not to bring something up for really long time, then it's hard to bring up. Yeah, if that's what your culture is in within a family as a filmmaker and screenwriter you probably think a lot about what your characters want, what their motivations might be. Now, having made this documentary about your dad, do you have a better understanding of what his motivations were, what he wanted from life? What were the things that drove him as an artist. I think he was really primarily driven by curiosity and love of people that the anomalies in their characters and how they were the person who was both could be a good person and do bad things or do or how people were morally ambivalent. You know, he never tried to teach people how to live. It's funny. He thought of that you moralist. But I think if you really unpack his work, he's he's asking questions about what it is to live a moral life, but he's not really giving anyone advice. You know, I think it's more like you saying, let's examine ourselves in a real way. Rebecca Miller is the writer director of Arthur Miller writer, Rebecca, thanks much for coming on the show and catching up. Thank you so much.

"With everything that is happening in the world today there there's a lot of parallels to it but when you think about that story line you're right a lot of times that was done in secret that was almost seem to be the role of of the matriarch or or women in the household to be like i need to keep this together as men failed miss did yeah i mean it is keeping the facade keeping it looking good keeping but that's just a lot of us live that way or a lot of us were raised that way or we all know variations on that theme so i was really intrigued to sort of dive deep into someone who kinda took that to the and i was also really intrigued that that arthur miller wrote this during world war two even though wasn't produced until just after world war 2 and some of his his tax is just so spot on it is scary while very scary uh like having your moral star and finding it and what do you do with it goes out and how do you live van can you be are you a person who can live with lies or not and just things that we take for granted and not i don't think about daytoday so i was really in trade and there's a where it's great to hear especially when you talk about a play the now what sixty plus years old but it's interesting because that's where it what theater does force rightist idea of pushing what are conscious pushing the themes in our lives are making us think about who we are and what we see on stage it's astonishing to me that at twenty seven years old this guy could put this play down on the page clearly drawing a from his own personal life and that every night at court theater as the secrets had kid is talking about slowly inexorably inevitably get revealed the audience just gets more and more and more invested so that by the time we get to the end of the peace there's audible crying audible responses going on in the most kind of primal way and i'd like how did he do that.
