Parents who want schools reopened risk putting themselves before their kids
"Sociologist and professor of education and public policy at U. C. Berkeley's Graduate School of Education. Hey, is an authorities written a couple books, standardized childhood and organizing locally. Speaking of books, Bruce, are you going? I know you're in the midst of your writing another book, but it's not on this top topic. Isn't this really something that someone should be writing a book on? Oh, for sure, It's Ah, It's a right area for Her research and lay foundations and others. You're trying to get some research up on going to really document In part, the inequalities that had built in the online instruction You know, before we talk to talk about that I do want to talk about the inequalities because I know you've done a lot of work on that and and you know, it's hard for me. I really identify why don't but I would like to identify with inner city kids who parents who have a really difficult time. I understand. I'm very fortunate in that regard, but others are less fortunate, and they have a lot of issues that they're facing. But talk a little bit about what you've done. Commented on in some of these pieces about the attention to child care, academic supervision for low income families and how the unhappiness and anxiety of parents will in fact, maybe Permanently. Hurt the development of kids. Well, I think is all parents know, Alan. Our kids are super sensitive to the stress and anxiety in the home. Especially younger kids say through fourth or fifth grade, but even adolescence or hyper sensitive to how they're parents you're doing you know whether In a one parent's divorce when parents with childcare arrangements cancels their job. Congress is deadlocked over unemployment protection. So in time of benefits, maybe running out in the next couple weeks on the problem is that the stress, of course, is most intense and working class. Household so Not only do we have kids that are trying to figure out what to do during the day and how detective teachers but we have terrorists under You know, suffering enormous anxiety and pressure. Some have to get to work to risk their own health. Some as we've seen in the papers, some get Corona virus come home sick. And then and then have to lose their jobs. And all those stressors buildup and that really set skins back emotionally and socially and They start to turn off start employing from online instruction. So I mean, this agreement is nice. It's it's better than the spring, but it doesn't provide child care for parents. It doesn't provide relief for parents who need to get back to their jobs. And it's a deeper structural problems facing blue calling parents especially They're really going to start to drag down kids on Dwyane achievement gaps and social developmental disparities. Yeah, I was going to ask you about that. But I mean, if this continues throughout the year How many kids are going to need to repeat this year? How many kids are goingto possibly need to repeat the year before? I mean, this is his going there. It seems like this is good. This might be a massive problem. A lot, And that's why I think we've got a experiment in small charters or small private schools carried to see how we get out of this hole because You know better off families. Khun can finance learning pods they can hire college students is tutors, but You called her parents trying to get back to the mechanic jobs or they're nursing assistant jobs. These air folks who don't have many options, and if their kids falsehoods and certainly behind, it's going to close off college opportunities are not able to graduate from high school. So I'm sympathetic with the unions who want to be super cautious about Teacher's going back to school. But the costs are going to be mounting for the families and kids, and we've got a way that I think more heavily than we have in recent months. And what about socialization? What can we do? In order to try and avoid some of the detrimental effects that we know occur when kids don't have for especially younger ones. You know, I know, For instance, my kids they really haven't had a whole lot of play dates of Fanny. They haven't been able to socialize. It's got to have an impact. What do we do? Oh, yeah. And I think that's what this learning pot idea. Alan is picking up speed. It's it's going to create inequalities, but you got to sympathize. With parents like yourself. Who's kids? They're just not They're not making any friendships. They're not working. You know, morning howto work out problems with their peers. They're not enjoying the joy of, you know, being in school out in the playground. And that lack of emotional support and Emotional wonder Munch. You know that that's so much part of childhood and that's goingto Nita mounting disparities as well. So I think we have to find ways of expanding our pods hanging out with our cousins, You know, figuring out who's been Most unhealthy for a number of weeks and then trying to engineer these get togethers for kids because All learning is built upon a strong emotional base. If that starts to crack its biggest section on kids running on the society as a whole

Europe's coronavirus resurgence: Are countries ready to prevent a 'second wave'?
"According to the UK Daily Mail. Second wave is striking EUROPE, Spain reintroduces lock down Greece's He's worrying rising cases. The virus is more active in Germany amid warnings friends could quote lose control at any moment. According to the UK Daily Mail. A second wave of covert 19 appears to be striking Europe, forcing Spain to reimpose lockdowns in case is speaking to a three month high in Greece. Head of Germany's doctors union has declared the country is already in the midst of the second wave because people have flouted social distancing rules. Well, this is perfectly predictable. You can't people keep people locked down forever. For literally years in time. It's not a thing that you could dio instead, you're going to have to at some point allow people who are young and healthy to go out there, and if they get it, they get it. That is fact what Sweden is doing in Sweden, which remember until five minutes ago was the bad guy. Sweden has basically flattened her. It looks like Sweden may have reached her immunity is what it actually looks like. Meanwhile, in other countries, they got a problem. In fact it it seems pretty obvious what's happening here. Italy has not seen a second object. Why hasn't Italy Tina? Second uptick because they got nailed. Basically, here's the rule If it burned three population maybe you're done. It is not burned through your population. You probably are not done. Spain's 8500 cases over the weekend and all inclusive resort in Majorca was shut down. Two towns north of Madrid has been put under strict lock down as well. Finland today announced plans to reintroduce recommendations to work from home whenever possible. By August 1st, Finland's cases had risen by more than 300% in two weeks. That run understands us that governor of Florida can't believe. Also governor of Finland Donald Trump, obviously blowing it over in Finland is blowing it over in France as well. Authorities in France grappling with a sharp increase in fresh cases, which has seen more than 7002 infections within the last week. As well as a rise in the number of people being treated for covert 19 in the I C U Around 1200 cases are being reported for day. Two weeks ago, he rolling average with 719. Meanwhile, in Germany, they're seeing an uptick as well. Some 730 cases have been reported each day on average this week against the 460 being recorded her day about two weeks ago. So the second wave is, in fact hitting Europe. It really is kind of the first wife. It really is more the 1st 1 because the first wave Basically just got a little bit squished. And delayed Basically, everything just got delayed. Meanwhile, Sweden seems to be coming out the other end of this. According to Newsweek. As of Sunday, the latest death rate in Sweden for 100,000 people was reported to be 56.4 figure is lower than that reported in the U. K 69.6, Spain 16.8 and Italy, according to the latest report Sunday by Johns Hopkins University. The UK currently has the world's 4th 4th highest death toll Spain in Italy, where the former to European countries hit worse by the outbreak. Sweden's latest case fatality ratio proportion of deaths compared total cases was reported to be about 7.1% and figure is more than half the percentage reported in the UK, half that of Italy in Belgium and nearly half that of France. The reason being that a lot of young people are getting it in Sweden, and he's burned through some of the young population and now they're basically done. Sweden's 70 rolling average daily new cases has been mostly declining since as far back as April 16th when the average was in 99. The average dropped it to two average daily new deaths on August 2nd, according to world Ometer. New infections for 100,000 people in Sweden reported in the past 14 days has dropped from 46% compared to that reported in the 14 days prior. Meanwhile, Spain, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, each spiking between 58 206% in new cases. New cases in Denmark, Norway and Finland. All the other places that supposedly handled it better than Sweden have also seen. Their percentage is increasing at around three times the percent drop in new cases scene in Sweden in the past two weeks. So what That sort of says is, it looks like Sweden. Maybe this thing it may look like it's over in Sweden. Under technologies epidemiologist, Sweden's Public health agency. What we've cut down on movement in society quite a lot, if compared how much we travel in Scandinavian countries. The decrease in travel is the same in Sweden, as in the neighboring countries. In many ways, the voluntary measures we've put in place in Sweden have been just as effective as complete lock down in other countries. In other words, when you tell people don't travel, all that much people take it pretty seriously. The point here is that for all the talk about how we know how to handle this, and we just have to shut everything down, Lock down this lock down there. Sweden and locked down and may be the smartest of all sweet may be the smartest of all.

It's the APP where young people congregate to watch short funny videos of people, lip synching, and doing silly things.

'Better America': Biden's Campaign Launches New National Ad
"In one thousand, nine, sixty, four Lyndon Johnson ran a now iconic campaign ad against Barry Goldwater where a little girl counts daisy pedals until her counting becomes the countdown to nuclear explosion idea being present goldwater has become elected and started a nuclear war because he's a madman. said. It. there. Is, are, the stakes. You'll make a world in which all of God's children can live. Aren't to go into the dark room, we must either love each other. Or we must die. Vote for President Johnson on November third, the stakes are too high for you to stay home. The stakes are that you're adorable daughter gets nuked. Now. Even though we're not living through a nuclear winter, we are living through a version of disaster. I mean a a national disaster resulting in thousands and thousands of deaths day after day after day and a new Joe Biden goes against the grain in many ways the opposite of the grand life and death scale the daisy at. The new the biden relates what a bummer. This current disastrous doesn't focus deaths, evictions, closed schools. It says, this virus is ruining the little things like seeing your grandkids. have been gifted with two beautiful grandchildren. We try to see them as often as possible and it's been six months. And it's way too long. And while I don't blame Donald Trump for the virus, I blame him for his lack of action and because of that, we're sitting here zooming or facetime ing with our grandchildren instead of hugging and kissing them. And that's hard. Joe Biden knows every moment is precious I trust you Biden to get this virus under control? I'm Joe Biden and I approve this message. Seems like a really real smart relatable ad for a portion of the population that Joe Biden is trying to focus on. This is for all the people who were sold on idea that there was some normal around the Ben. During the trump years because there is no normal during trump that was false join me. Now for more on the different approaches, the two campaigns are taking is Adrian Shropshire. She's a veteran democratic strategist and executive director of black pack had a lot of experience in politics community organizing and ads as well and I just I was so struck by this ad agent because it's so understood in. So many ways given how terrible things are and given the kind of micro targeted median voter. He's trying to reach you know elderly couple or senior citizen couple in Florida. Yeah I mean the reality is that. Voters understand where we are. They understand the crisis that we're in. They do not. WanNa see campaign after campaign ad reminding them of our national. Right. I've said he focused move after folks. And what? The message that voters say that they want to hear is one of national unity. They WanNa hear message about a path forward how this mess is going to get fixed and I think the brilliant thing about that ad is that. while. It appears to be targeted at one segment of the electorate. The reality is that that is all of us, right? That is my entire family every Sunday night sitting zoom call, right so it is it is. There is a moment where the multipronged crisis that are facing the country are literally touching every single one of us and what's brilliant about the ad is that. You know it's it leads toward that unifying message right? It is it in every message quite frankly every ad I would hope to see that comes out of the campaign on is a way to unify to tell a message to tell a story that connects people about the moment that we're in. It's really if you think about it in this in this way having a national unity being a campaign strategy all by itself.

The first thing to know about Cafe California is what it wasn't just one hundred and twenty five meters up Dizengoff was a legendary Bohemian cafe called carseat. It had been in operation since nineteen, thirty five, and since then it was the place where you can find some of Jewish palestines and then Israel's greatest poets and writers.

It was with a few restless L. Buddies that Netanyahu opened cafe.

Yeah I, you know quick Reader's Digest version is. A pretty good athlete grown up back East right and had scholarship offers and was fortunate enough when I was in. Eighth Grade. To walk in the YMCA, fine little dungeon part where all the tough guys athletes working out in in. There was a level five Olympic lifting coach, and saw me with my little fitness books working out and said Hey kid Chimera.

Maybe I do feel like that that like systems kinda thinking or do you think there's any thinking and finance that is helpful for sports is just make quincy dental you are. I think it's I think it's for competitors. We'll always WANNA look at measures of success. And that's kind of a natural thing. Until you realize I work, I work hard to get something and I realized I. Don't like it when I get here, that might not be success but I think finance is a challenging. Competitive. And and you know with detail and all these little nuances you can take and I think that attracts people to feel they wanna feel successful right, and then you realize you're sit in front of a computer all day long. Yeah. I. Can totally see that. Makes that makes sense I. You're speaking of success to ask the first thing. It's official question. I had and I just I guess, I, felt like starting with this rather than jumping right into the six lanes but. What is success in sport mean to you or? Yeah. So. What it used to meet. Right. So we all have these objectives and goals right, and we think that success when we meet that, we're going to be successful when feel successful yet, what happens when you need it? How long does they last for me? It lasts maybe five minutes and then I'm spending the next stuff in saying, okay. GotTa, start grinding now for the school and realizing that my daily experience wasn't great. So, success for me sport or any endeavor is your daily optimize experience that's sustainable over time. So if you're an athlete of Your Business Guy, whatever it is, if you're living your dream, you're loving your days, you're making a contribution feeling fulfilled. Ben. That's success to me. And so that's how I look at it when I get an athlete that. Wants to scholarship, but he's loving the training loving where he isn't high school having great teammates. Great relationships performing on the field. Every day is not future. You know obsessed all the time that successful to me. That makes sense with the process, right? Like. So often we just look at this. What's the goal? Win The Akron serve get the scholarship, but then, but then what I mean. Eventually it just. Eventually. There's think an emptiness. I mean, it's Nice Scholarships for sure. But at some point you get to the top and. Maybe realize you're on the wrong ladder something, but it's Where I've dealt with the most Olympic athletes after an Olympic year while they struggle. Mightily, they struggle with purpose with focus with what it all means. Up the disappointment of even if they got a medal, did feel as good as they thought. But the daily optimal experience their love in their life in the training or joining, they're enjoying the relationships are building that seems to be sustainable
Carnivore Diet Myths Debunked
"Is up guys welcome to this solo cast episode think you'd have been Greenfield for the questions which I will be answering in Solo casts episode. As many of you may know I've written the book, the Cardboard Code Rushing the video. You can see there behind me, this podcast will be released the first week of August twenty twenty one the second edition of my book is now live. So if you enjoy information check out the book dot, Carnivore Code Dot Com if you guys are new to this you. Haven't heard me talk to Ben. About the Carnivore Diet to previous podcasts on the Carnivore Diet you may WanNa check out in addition to this. So I was on Ben's podcast in March of Twenty nineteen and then last year or earlier this year when the first edition of the came out, I did the first solo cast on Ben's episode on Ben's show in which I answered some reader questions, not the Carnivore Code and after Ben read the book, He me a list of questions that he had about. The were code and that is what I will be diving into more specifically today on this solo casts episode. As many of you know Ben is a student of this stuff about chemistry. So some of these questions are pretty detailed try and break them down as clearly as I can. There's a lot of good nuance here that I think bring guys a lot of value. If you are more interested in ain't virata your Ordina, I'll give you three minutes summary Now for dive into some of these finer points the. Carnivore Diet is is an idea of an animal based I in contradistinction to plant based sides of today, the feces that I advance in my book the Carnivore Code are twofold in broad terms. The first is the animal foods specifically red meat and ruminant animals have been incorrectly vilified the last seventy years mostly at the by the result or as a result of incorrectly done science based on observational epidemiology. We have answer keys to thank for that. In many ways I've done a great podcast on my show with Natasha. Wrote Big Fat surprise in which we breakdown many of the myths surrounding saturated fat. So I probably will not get into saturated fat in this episode today. But if you want to know why we have such a bad misunderstanding, saturated fat listened to that episode on my podcast, we go into the details of saturated fat why it's actually very healthy for humans approach to get into it a little bit. Today with steering acid later but that is a big big misconception. There are many other misconceptions regarding read me that will cause cancer that will cause heart disease that it was shorten your life. Some of those will address today they are all addressed in my book, but they are all false none of them are supported by real interventional science actual experiments. They are false claims made based on observation deeming allergy. That has been widely misinterpreted and is inherently flawed Ben and I have talked about this in the past on previous shows. So referred of those. So the first of the book, a Carnivore Co is that Red Meat Animal Foods knows detail organ meets, which I want to talk about a lot today are critically important in the human diet. The part of every humans diet if we wish to be healthy and optimal and they should not be shunned based on incorrect science embrace the red meat especially. And know that you need those meeting Oregon's in order to thrive Ben I know is becoming more and more a fan of organ meats. He many nose to tail meals in the past together with the great. Great. Enjoyment in there are many amazing stories of that and let him tell you at some point in the future. The second thesis of the book is the plant foods exist on a toxin spectrum plants are rooted in the ground. They have no defenses other than the toxins they have evolved. This is not really conjecture botanical science. In the Condor Code I discussed multiple studies showing there are thousands and thousands of plant toxins that are present in plants and these can be harming. It's my golden writing. This book is not commit everyone to stop eating all plants. It's to empower you to realize to fold as saying here now that red meat and animal foods are the most nutritious foods on the planet that I mean containing the most bioavailable sources of all the nutrients humans need to thrive and number two that if you're not kicking as much fun as you want, you may be you may be well served by considering the plan foods you're eating on A. Spectrum which also outlined in the book and eliminating the plants that are most toxic that may be harming you in a variety of ways plans make defense chemicals. This is undeniable and again again all out in the book, it's a very comprehensive book over six hundred fifty references, and that is a broad strokes outlook on the way that I think humans really should be eating the first part. Of the book is about evolution we talk about the human brain is talking about the human brain in book at that point, and I talk about how it's gotten very big very quickly over the last two, million years primarily as a result of humans eating meat hunting I'm going to answer some questions been had in regard to this that in this podcast in secondarily I, talk about the fact. that. When we began agriculture are health when south very quickly and there's very good evidence that this is the really the massive change in the nutritional density of our foods accompanied that as we were hunting less and I will talk about that specifically in this podcast because Ben asked a question about that second part of the book is mostly about plant toxins I breakdown individual types of land toxins. I about polyphenyls why I think we've got this all wrong Benon I may respectfully disagree here but I I do make out what I believe is a very strong case for the book and I would love more discussion with this in the future I talk about oxalate electons solicits and I talk about all kinds of things like that. That are harming US isothiocyanates, which I will talk about today. which are things like fourteen in goal trian. and. How these plant compounds can affect for Mona balance that can affect nutrient absorption. They can affect our gut and really wreak havoc in lot of us if we are not aware of how present in our diet they are, how we might detoxify them in house. Some of US might be more specifically sensitive to them than and they can be causing us great harm and suffering the third part of the book is about to bunking. MITTS in the book. I. Talk About. I. Bunk. With me at that assurance, your life that causes cancer that causes heart disease and that you need fiber to poops all that is in the book I won't get into all of that today I could never do that would be a six hour podcast restaurants in there and in the fourth and final part of the book I outline very clear perspective very clear a model for how to eat a diet outlined five tiers. Of the Carnivore Diet, which gives the reader a sense of how to do this that works best for you and they some of them include plants a tier one for Diet includes plants I call it carnivore ish, but it gives you a toxicology spectrum and the foods that I believe are least toxic are included. They are able to be included on a carnivore ish type diet. Ben Himself has often said that he's eating carnivores. Words in his mouth I think that he would agree with this that he's thinking about making the majority of his Diet Animal Foods and organ meats, and then eating the foods, the plant foods that agree with him the most and thinking about the toxicity spectrum of those plants.

Roles working on articles for magazines or working on book chapters or it is recording a podcast either being interviewed or interviewing someone from my own show so you know I'm a big believer in kind of cal Newport's idea of deep work and spend those four to five hours just immersed in awe on reactive work right like the e mails those get saved for the afternoon or early evening the reactive Hey ben can shoot a quick quick video for this or two minutes of this three minutes of that now all that stuff gets saved for later on the day 'cause that's easy to do even when you're cognitively fatigue you can respond and you can react but my time is my time from about nine so your Tan up until about one thirty or two nothing distracts me that's all deep worked on and do you take any kinds of supplements or brain enhancement tools at this point so I have my cup of coffee in the morning and in many cases that will have like some for significant mushroom extract in it like some some lion's mane or some chalk or something like that that sometimes I'll take a neutral pick like quality mind or quality of Focus typically to keep my appetite satiated go through that morning of work I am chewing gum sometimes it's nicotine gum often with sparkling water Zevia And so yeah they're usually there's some kind of stimulant kinda keeping me going in that time in addition my my office is just littered with all these pieces of biohacking equipment that I use working out so I'm standing on a grounding mad Inflammation while I'm at work I have light panels these red light infrared panels that kind of shine light on me while I'm working I've a walking treadmill you know a standing treadmill desk a little Allen's board I haven't kettle bell so I'm Kinda constantly moving at the office I mean technically even if I don't get a chance to work out during the day I'm taking like fifteen thousand subsidize just talking to people and moving around and doing things in my office and one thing I didn't mention by the way was when when I say in a smoothie for breakfast my smoothies are pretty damn excrete extravagant we're talking like bone broth Collagen a coconut milk meal of Stevia Sea Salts and blended all up like an ice cream texture second year with a spoon almost like an assignable and then I'll talk with like spiraling in Kerala and cacao nibs and coconut flakes and all these past epoch looking pretty good stuff in there and really the you know most of most of everything else I eat it's very almost like I'm discovers Paleo but it's almost like a bastardized version of the car of diet like so I eat a lot of a lot of organic wild meat I hunt so I have freezer full of meat that I've hunted and I also will order good organic meats one of my favorite companies hunt I hunt whitetail deer elk Turkey access deer tag and what are you what are you kill with and avoid oh you're not even using your now though I like the challenge of of spot in stock with a bow that seems amazing actually that got to be fairly old school and that's got to require a lot of technique I would think like I practice everyday practice shooting day when I'm at home with a bow and I travel with this little handheld device allows kind of practice on traveling without my if someone wanted to get into words would you call it archer is that grab it I wanted to get into archery how how about doing that My method was to visit my local beauchamp and sue visit with them to get fit by them to have a bowl built then I began to shoot in some archery competitions and also some hunting competitions called trained to hunt I went out hunting some people who kind of mentor me and guided me through my first hunts I subscribed to Peterson's bow hunting magazine there's a few good bow hunting podcast out there like my friend John Dudley's knock-on very a good show and so you know a little bit magazine little to podcast and then just immersing myself in the local hunting community amazing man that seems like such a also organ meats liver Heart Kidney a lot of good grass fed wild me while caught salmon and and you know Elk Bison Buffalo Etcetera and then just lots of like small berries tubers like Sweet Potato Pumpkin Yam and Cetera coffee in the morning little bit of wine in the evening and a little bit of raw honey another carbohydrate source and so you know my diet is is very very simplest from a very complex morning smoothie okay so after you've done all this work it's late afternoon I now going to do another type of activity is you mentioned you kind of two things yeah I break and have lunch right and and lunch is typically something like I've just described like a little sweet potato was leftover steak from the night before I'm a big customer of wild planet Sardine so I order other herring and mackerel sardines and anchovies so a lot of small cold water fish a lot of Omega threes lot of times I'll have those for lunch with a little bit of like a like a Pumpkin Mash or something like that or squash and stimulate your vagus nerve a Puna sleep mask and technically the new calm has like a twenty minute power nap function and so most days all I have is

"Remember that time when we broke away from you and then created the great country in the history of the world and you're not a part of it remember that I am actually I am actually anglophile. I'm very grateful for the heritage of Anglo American law and very grateful for Magna Carta. I have a lot of fondness for Great Britain. I I love British history. I will say that a constitution that that is focused in on checks and balances and has the idea of guaranteed rights lying at center is is is a very very good idea and has preserved a lot more liberty particularly in the area of the First Amendment in the Second Amendment then has Great Britain like I have a lot of respect of the parliamentary system but it just is not preserved moved central liberties the same way that the United States has and people should go watch your Sunday special with Daniel Hannan. Also you see me talk to another brick Piers Morgan those good times that was really that was fun. I there's a guy like I actually listened to it on spotify. Yeah you can listen on spotify which I love because I can do the cars mazing and then I went back and watched it because I wanted you see the body language. I like. I mean the weird thing. I mean you know this because we're friends yeah. The weird thing is I actually kind of Nice to people in kind of like them but I just destroyed my brand. Only that setting is turned on though like it has to be turned on the issue bobby and hanging out with any well listen. I've been hanging out with my family and anyone else yeah. There's no chance I'm GONNA hang out with anyone else like I'm best friends with the with my business partner this business we have never in ten years been out to dinner by ourselves elves when we were not on a business trip and spouses were not apple like it's never happened ever like I don't get invited to dinners all the time not interested in I mean you and I have been friends and for a very very long time. When have we ever seen each other outside of work absence our spouses? Oh never it's never happened ever so yeah. It's not a thing even functions and you don't come to cross house barbecues. No that's right I mean it's like baby showers and birthday party yeah exactly and if and if it is something where become it's always like years exactly aright. Hello Ben Big Fan. What if anything can we do to bring Adam Schiff to just as we round up a posse and then we go down to CNN headquarters we find a pup tent can't Adam Schiff is in there because it's all day long just sits in the Pompton round him? Bring Him Dejesus that this all got. I mean not your impersonation of the people were I'm from. No that's just checking. I don't know not your turn their cowboys from places that are not in Oklahoma Yeah but the best ones are vocal homa. I don't some would I'd say the best ones are from Dallas Anyway. How can we get Congress back on track women? This is the question they've done nothing but waste our money answer answer. Stop giving the money there you have it really that that is the solution. The answer is that Congress should not have so much power. They should not be able to legislate on US much. The states should be the central repositories of walking and local governments should be the central repositories of lawmaking. Yes Congress will continue to waste your money because wherever there is money to waste people will do it. I mean there has never yet been an institution with lots of money where people don't waste lots of money like that's just the way that it is because also because in government there's no profit incentive to gain of a big company and it doesn't waste lots of money because if it did it would be bankrupt the the government never goes bankrupt. The Nice thing is that if they raise lots of money they know where that came from and it is from you so they can just keep taking your money all right how okay favourite era to study in American History Story Oh man so when I was younger when I was when I was a kid it was revolutionary war history. I loved I loved it yeah super into it as folk score fans no I used to dress up as John Atoms for Halloween every single year on him and seeing all the songs from seventeen seventy six of course all of them and all the words and so revolutionary war history of big into and then when I was in middle school I was big into civil war history so and that lasted probably through I mean I still find civil war and pre-civil history absolutely riveting not just because of the inherent the drama of a country is gonNA fight itself but also because of the moral the moral ambiguity of a lot of the stance that were being being taken like Stephen Douglas stance on slavery anti-slavery but also he wants to keep the country together. The evolution of the country in that period is so is fascinating. you know the dark side side of the American experiment is absolutely worth studying so all of that is riveting when I was in college I was big into the progressive era so I steady Woodrow Wilson a lot and tr now I was into I was doing a lot of world war two era stuff but it really depends I mean I I read history and Sassoli Salei so I'm their areas of history that are sort of under covered like everything basically from the civil war to nineteen hundred is wildly under covered and there's a really I just recommend on the show. There's a great biography of grant. That's out right now by rancher now that's really fascinating and a lot of that is about the post civil war era and the radical Republicans in the attempt to reconstruct construct south and how that failed one of the great tragedies in American history. I love history fascinating stuff so it's hard for me. Choose one particular era. I can usually people ask that I ask give me an era and then I'll trying give you a book. That's good about that era and you're like an encyclopedia library. I mean I I have some I mean I I feel bad now. My wife is doing the comrie method and we're talking about this before and I'm thinking about which books to get rid of yeah. and I WANNA make a list of the books that I have at least I can refer back in my mind to where I got stuff but I have at home something like seventy five five hundred books and so I have to I have to go through all of that and figure out many books yeah and it probably read eighty percent of them. Maybe wow maybe five percents so when you walk into a bookstore you're perusing online what makes you have you ever gone to buy a book that you didn't intend by. What made you buy that book so I I used to do this a lot when I was in law school so when you now the kids once you have kids you have no time for anything the serve kids it might actually like it but mike his kids like it too but then it's also you have to put all the books back? That's true myself. Yeah my son's a wreck I mean he'll just like burn down on the store but my daughter will sit there and really enjoy but you know when I when I was in law school every spare minute basically because there's nothing to do in Cambridge in the winter I mean it's dark and cold and terrible and so every minute I just walked down to the Harvard Bookstore or some of these bookstores they had down there now just browse and the usually I'd go to a particular section and yeah I would use the blurbs on the back of the book is sort of a guide as to at least where it was gonNA stand politically nonfiction book when it came to fiction I would usually go through you know top hundred lists and see what people had to say yeah and then I checked to see if the premise was interesting yeah and so that's why if I look at top hundred lists of top hundred novels voles all read most of them but I do the same thing with movies like if I wanted to watch movie when I was back in college law school I would go to the top hundred listen. I I would just watch something on the list so literally seen every single movie on the top one hundred and that's and I mean it's not a bad way to do it. I mean at least you've you've read the stuff that's supposed to be great trade even if it doesn't end up being great or seen that sort of stuff but at the coal thing to go off of that yeah I mean now when I go to a bookstore it's more like is there an author who I like and is there a new book out by that author author so there's book I'm reading right now. Call deeper calmer ALANTHEA's and I think he's he wrote a book called Matterhorn about the Vietnam War. This book is about the logging in the in the late nineteenth century in Oregon but he's a great author and he can really right and so for him. It was like a new Book Came Out Wall Street Journal Book Review Section is the single best thing in print. It's great their view section is just fantastic and so every Shibat my parents who subscribed bring that over and I read that through I get a lot of my new book recommendations from their call all right in a recent conversation station about the Second Amendment with a friend I mentioned that it is important because it is a right protected by the Constitution to which he responded quote but the Constitution is old close quote. How would you have responded to him by laughing hysterically at his stupidity? That's that's that's the dumbest response ever. You know what is old a lot of stuff and you know it's good a lot of stuff and you know what's dumb a lot of new stuff like why is the age thing or an idea somehow representative quality. There are a lot of dumb new ideas. The idea that a man can become a woman is idiotic this new oh idea you know it's an old idea that a man cannot become a woman that happens to be far more intelligence. You know it's an old idea. The stuff in the ten commandments seems pretty intelligent to me. Yeah I mean there's there's lots of stoats watches. I mean there's antique but in terms of Principles I mean my whole book is about the idea that a smart person looks at the past and tries to call from the past what is quality and then card away. What is not a stupid person looks at the past and says all those old idiots? They didn't know anything and if I had been them I'd be saying exactly same thing I'm saying today and it's a really stupid. Irritating juvenile way of reading history is why you see people like George Washington slaves. I'm a better person than George Washington like nope. You're not. I'm sorry to tell you this probably not smarter probably not better and you didn't live then so you don't know and this idea that you would have you'd have been there new. You would've said to George Washington. You know what's wrong with you. You're not for gay rights. If you're living like seventeen eighty sure I'm sure that's what you would have said. Also in your fantasy world you get green energy from Unicorn and so what what what are you what are you talking about people exist in the context in which they live and there's something also deeply sell flattering about that and deeply insulting wanting to people who live in parts of the world that disagree with your values by the way you know you have all of these people who are like Oh yeah all cultures are equal and all ideas are equal the same people will then suggest that their ideas are so so eminently correct in so eminently obvious that could born been born at any time in any place and they would have held those values regardless said well. Guess what you know. The number of people who hold your values across the span span of human history is like seven really the the people who are living right now some of them hold your values not the vast majority of humanity. The vast majority of humanity does not hold your values and so maybe you should think think about how did your values rise. Where did they come from? What are the roots of those values? Even the values that you think are different than new very often they have roots and values that are older so the roots of same sex marriage for example that the argument libertarian argument is not hurting anybody and so it's nobody else's business what I do well that is a that is a value that is founded a belief in individual rights and individual worth and value and that in turn is found in a belief that you are an individual human being with unique value and that's actually a biblical value so you can take Biblical valley wide variety of directions and that doesn't mean that the current interpretation of the biblical value is is necessarily correct but if you.

But really in that situation as you're saying, it is a distraction, and so one of the ways that you can handle that is to realize that with the taxes. It's never going to be something that you like and saying what's at stake. If I don't get this done. What happens if I don't get my taxes done? And then it's like, okay that will be more paperwork, and what are the benefits of getting the taxes done will the best benefit of getting taxes done. Is you just have to stop think you get a break from it? You're done with it. You get it behind you. And so it is almost like our brain wants to choose something that's easier, and we fool ourselves that we're being productive. When actually what we are doing is avoiding taxes. And so in that situation. You can also say cleaning the closet is really just meet avoiding taxes. So let's get real doesn't just having a will thought out to do list solve a lot of this. If you know for me, I if I have a list of things, and I know I can go down the list and cross them off as I go. I'm just much more likely to do it. Well, I think that a to do list can be helpful one of the things that I recommend is that what whatever kind of to-do list that you have every day you have three high priority tasks because we can get lost in our to do lists. And we may not have a good strategy for figuring out what the priority in. What's not not a priority? I mean, like you said you on your your to do list, it could be taxes done in clean closet. Obviously, you know, that's not going to help you focus and do the most important thing. I, but it does seem that writing things down in some kind of order makes it more likely that things will get done than it all just sits in your head. And I don't know what to do next. Oh, absolutely. So one of the things I recommend is that like on a Sunday night right out pretty much everything you want to get done for the rest of the week. And then what you do is on Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday you right in. Three tasks for each day. And that way, you know, you highest priorities on Monday things that are not so timely on Friday. And so he then you put three main tasks on each day. Now that doesn't mean you're only doing three tasks that means those are the things at once you not those out, you know, you've you've you're on track you're on target. So absolutely used to do this. But you don't wanna have a fifteen item to do list sitting in front of you every morning you wake up. What do we know what a science tell us about the ability of of your brain to stay on task. And do a good job for how long before before performance starts to suffer..

"Sorry. Moving on Evan Ben. Why do you have a problem with men wearing minimal clothing? I e a grout arranger panties, most amount of homosexual. So there's that. Mostly, is there another part of the answer? I in general MFN of modesty. That's always it's both the, I'm not gay, so I don't really enjoy that. And also the also the generally in favour of modesty, but most of it is the, I don't really enjoy seeing men unclothed. So I would say it's mostly up. Neither do I, which makes it real hard to work with Knowles or it'd be married. Apparently. I mean, that's. Mainly mainly should've taken a picture though of Crowder in his shorts with Knowles in his boxers that he likes to one around the office in. It's like there's one creep at every company just set this place on firemen, and we have ours on fire. AVI says, hi, if someone were to travel back in time, fifteen to twenty years, what would he have to be like to be friends with younger Ben Shapiro? I know it wasn't really a friends person. It's always been more of a family person than a friend's person. Honestly, the thing that would have been interested. I always liked to have interesting conversations with people, so you'd actually have to be interested in things. My pet peeve is people who are boring because the truth is that when people this is Dennis Prager line, it's exactly right when people say they're bored with things, it's because they're boring, right? If you're interested in things and you find the world and interesting place and you are in wanna talk about ideas, then this is always true, and this is true of my friends. Now, all of my friends. Now we enjoyed talking about ideas. We don't really wanna minute lunch and people are talking about people. I'm really not all that interested in it. All right. Some these singer eight says I was listening to pod, save America. I don't know why a couple of weeks ago they mentioned how Oklahoma, that's my home state passed a massive tax cut that crippled the state's finances. How much of this is you know, honestly, I don't know the answer to that. I'd actually have to research that I haven't paid a lot of attention to Oklahoma because I don't live there, but it's, but I'll check that out and I'll get back on that one. All right.

"But as long as we it makes sense to me, I think the way that men and women comes religion is very different. I think the men come to religion typically through thinking about the world and thinking about the nature of God and logic in the universe, or they have a personal experience with God. I think it's more much more individually driven religion from it. I think for women for for this majority women, I know who are attracted to religion. It really is a lot less about sort of personal experience with God and a lot more about experience within a community. It's within I, it's about being ensconced in a church that believes things it's about being in scouts in a in a social fabric that brings up children in a particular way. And when women lose the community, they tend to become less religious. Generally men. Have to be individually sort of brought into the fold, and it's not as much about the feeling of community as it is about. Do I have a relationship with God on a personal level or not? That's a harder thing to do. Generally and men. All human beings tend to be arrogant when they are when they are doing well, and they tend to blame when they're doing poorly, which tends to cut against God if when things are going well, you see, I don't need God. I'm doing all this myself. Then you're not going to be religious. And if when things are going poorly, you say, this is all God's fault. You're less likely to be religious as well. So individual religion is a lot harder to keep them communal religion. And that's why in Judaism, there's always been a feeling that women were what kept the Jewish people go. I mean, this goes all the way back to Egypt and the bible. When the women were maintaining the lives of Jewish infants in the face of genocidal terror from the from pharaoh, it was the women who are really doing that job. It really wasn't the man. All right. At least says, Hello. Ben slash Thanos can use the Infinity stones to control the weather. Maybe the power stone to make the sun brighter or the reality stone to create rain. Please in lightness, mad titan. Well, I mean, as you saw, I sent my fingers did not disappear. So obviously my power. Are deeply limited. There's only so much I can do. I didn't even have to snap my fingers, make Jim's gun go away, but when it comes to, but when it comes to members of the office who I don't like or political opponents, apparently I'm much less successful with with the snapping strategy that also like Jews controlled the weather. So you're supposed to have the Infinity stones and and your. At our synagogue every every evening we decide what we want the weather to be tomorrow. This is why I mean with with this hurricane bearing down the east coast, I think you can safely say that these are not regions. Well, populated by Jews. Obviously, if the Jews were there, they would been able to turn the side, the hurricanes blue by holding up their hands and it's definitely not Senator. So Sean district? No, it is not she. She controls the weather that is true. Says, who would you consider to be the greatest writers in the English language in terms of style? Is there anyone in particular that you try to emulate in your own writing? So I mean in terms of fiction, the people who usually are named here are Nabokov who's were choices, spectacular. If you repeal fire, for example, as we're choice, it's just beautiful Faulkner in terms of the stylistics in terms of in terms of plotting ideas. I do love Herman Melville. I've always been partial to Moby Dick. If you are talking about sort of humorous style than Mark Twain. I love an awful lot as far as who I try to emulate my own style. The truth is I don't late anybody in my own style at this point. And that's because you spend a lifetime writing in various different styles out tonos younger. I was purposefully trying to emulate Ann Coulter who's very popular at the time. And then over time you say, I don't really want to be in that space and you start trying to emulate Charles Krauthammer for example. And now I would say I really don't think about who to emulate..

"So things I like today last night I had the opportunity to go see peration finale with Oscar, Isaac and and Ben Kingsley. Ben Kingsley is one of the best living actors. Ben Kingsley is just from in everything and he is. Predictably excellent. In this he plays Adolf Eichmann the Nazi a mastermind of logistics during the holocaust and Oscar Isaac plays in Israeli agent who is tasked with tracking him down, not only track him down, but also getting him to sign a document that gives permission for his trial to be held in Israel and the face off between the two of them is the best part of the movie. The movie is effective. It's very effective, not only is ineffective. I was I'm always pleased when there's no sucker punch. So whenever I see a movie that set up like this, I always think okay. Here comes. The soccer puncture comes these Steven Spielberg Munich, like sucker punch where we learned that the Israelis are really the Nazis or the Israelis are really great oppressors in Munich. That's what Spielberg did. He had tear their Palestinian terrorists murdered Israeli athletes at the Olympics. And somehow Steven Spielberg drew immoral equivalence between those people and Israeli agents tracking them down, which is an amazing, amazing feat of sort of intellectual gymnastics and moral gymnastics in this particular movie. However, there are no sucker punches. Israel is perceived as good because. It is a good country filled with people who are trying to survive in the face of radical anti semitism across the world and the Nazis are bad. Also, the movie takes some serious issues with regard to the banality of evil. So Hon rent very, very famous writer with I have far left leanings on politics. She wrote an entire book called Eichmann in Jerusalem about Eichmann's trial because I wasn't fact brought back to Israel for trial. He was put inside a glass booth actually to prevent him from being assassinated. And he and he was then hanged, Hon rents didn't entire book on him in basically, she made the claim that Aikman was just ineffective the banality of evil to fray shoes, the banality people. Now I have some fondness toward the idea that human beings our program to look the other way when their in group is threatened. When you're in group is threatened that you tend to go along with evil. But for you to be an architect of evil, I think, requires a little bit more. It seems that later research has sort of shown hunt, rents banality of evil point as applied to Adolf Eichmann to be kind of ridiculous. That wasn't fact rabid anti Semite who hated Jews and. And was willing to use any methods disposal to kill them in large numbers. But the movie really does cope with with some of those issues. Here is a little bit of the preview for operation. Finale. You have no interest in what I say. Unless it confers, if you think you will really know. Chope was simple. The country. I thought from being destroyed. She'll chop into front. So the movie is quite good. Again, it's it's, I think it doesn't sucker punch anybody. It does demonstrate the one thing that is shocked means the viewer Lynch of anti-semitism under the Perron regime in Argentina. They have a, you have a bunch of people on the left who somehow still have fondness for the parents in Argentina, which is kind of shocking. But the Peron regime wasn't eating evil regime and they shielded a crapload of Nazis who are attempting to escape dressed as after World War Two. Go check it out operation. Finale theaters right now..
