I listen to you and I listen to a job and others that like I said that the only radio station even goats me into into calling in The one thing that we all seem to underestimate. Keep focusing on Mr Trump. He is a life long con man. He was put there by the power elite. There's a book by the way that I Tell my friends and others to read. It's called The Power Elite unit was written by C. Wright Mills in 1956, and it describes this exactly, you know, I don't doubt what you're saying at all. And I think that maybe one of the reasons that he is now facing a very difficult election coming up is because I think that the power elite hasn't has lost confidence in him. Because even though these billionaires that you're talking about have so increased the money in their own coffers, Donald Trump is going a little bit wacko and he's you know he's off the reservation, and they can't count on. Was that a racist thing to say he's I apologize for that, then e think you understand my drift. He's not. He's not adhering to what they expected of him because he is now adopting these ridiculous conspiracy theories. He's saying things that are completely out of control. He's going down the rabbit hole himself, and Andi can't call out factions of our society that are so dangerous and deadly to the society and as far as covert is concerned. You know, they probably would have gotten rich on covert anyway. But Donald Trump has made it a substantially worse for the people and I would think ultimately That Is worse for the money delete. You know, they don't want to see America and poverty. I don't think they don't want to see American poverty. They don't want to see that because who were going to be the consumers then? You are going to be the people who consume the goods who are going to be the people whose money they take from us. We're not gonna have If we don't have any money, they got nothing to steal from us.

The I mean this was the proper organization that's the spiritual center from which flows and all direction. And then the capital was built right beside the temple this bigger than the temple, and now the biggest thing is the office building the care of the affairs both the temple and political building. That's the history of Western civilization from the Gothic through the princely periods of the sixteenth seventeenth eighteenth centuries to this economic world that we're in now. In New York now.

They come from realizations of some kind that have then to find expression in symbolic form. And the the myth the only that's GonNa be with thinking about. in the immediate future is one that. Talking about the planet. This city, not these people but the planet and everybody on it that's my main. Thought for what the future myth is going to be, and we'll have to deal with.

How to do it, and then how to relate to this society and how to relate this society to the world of nature and the cosmos that's what the myths of all talked about. That's what this one's got to talk about. But the society that it's GonNa talk about this Society of the planet until that gets going, you don't have anything is there's that wonderful photograph you have of the Earth. Seen from space..

"Had been influenced by Campbell's work. We talked about the message and meaning of myth about the first storytellers about love and marriage gods and goddesses religion ritual art psychology. But we always came around to his favorite subject the hero with a thousand faces. Why the hero with a thousand faces? Well, because there is a certain. Typical. Hero sequence of actions. which can be detected in stars from all over the world and from many many periods of history. And I think. It's essentially you might say the one deed done by many many different people. Why are there so many stories of the hero or if he rose in mythology. Well because that's what's worth writing about. I mean even in. Popular novel writing you see these the main characters hero or heroine that is to say someone who has found or achieved or done something beyond the normal range of achievement experienced. A hero properly is someone who has given his life to something bigger than himself. Are Other. Than? himself. So, when all of these cultures whatever the costume that he will not be wearing what is the deed? Whether two types of deed one is the physical deed, the hero who has performed A. War.

The other kind is the spiritual hero who has learned are found a a mode of experiencing the. Super Normal range of human spiritual life, and then come back and communicated. It's a cycle, it's going and to return that the hero cycle represents. But then this can be seen also in the simple initiation ritual where a child has to give up his childhood and become an adult has to die you might say to it's infantile personality and psyche and come back as a self responsible adult. It's a fundamental experience that everyone has to undergo. We're in our childhood for at least fourteen years and then to get out of that. Posture of dependency psychological dependency into one of psychological self responsibility requires a death and resurrection, and that is the basic motif of the hero's journey leaving one condition. Finding a source of life to bring you fourth in a Richer mature or other condition so that if we happen not to be heroes and the grand sense of redeeming society, we have to take that journey ourselves spiritually psychologically. Inside us, that's right and auto ranked in his wonderful should very short book called the myth of the birth of the hero.

Where he had thought to travel outwith, we should come to the center of our own existence. Where he had thought to be alone, we be with all the world. Joseph Cambell, the power of myth. With Bill Moyers. The Heroes Adventure. Joseph Campbell believe that everything begins with the story. So we begin this series with Joseph Cambell with one of his favorites he was in Japan for a conference religion and he overheard another American delegate a social philosopher from New York say to a Shinto priest. We've been now to a good mini ceremonies and if seeing quite a few of your shrines but I, don't get your ideology I, don't get you a theology. The Japanese paused as though in deep thought and then slowly shook his head I think we don't have ideology. He said, we don't have theology we dance. Campbell could have said it of his own life when he died in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seven at the age of eighty three he was considered one of the world's foremost authorities on mythology the stories and legends toby human beings through the ages to explain the universe and their place in it. The twenty books he wrote or edited have influenced artists and performers as well as scholars and students. When he died, he was working on a monumental historical atlas of world mythology. He's effort to bring under one roof, the spiritual intellectual wisdom of a lifetime. Some of his books are classics the hero with a thousand faces which established his fame forty years ago and his volume study of mythology, the masks of God. Joseph Campbell was one of the most spiritual man I ever met but he didn't have an ideology or theology mythology was to him the song of the universe music. So deeply embedded in our collective unconscious that we dance to it even when we can't name the June. Over the last two summers of his life, we take these conversations Californian at skywalker ranch, the home of his friend. George Lucas Who's movie trilogy Star Wars.

They used to say about George W Bush. His detractors did an. Conservative said at about Obama. This is the environment we're in in our in our politics, we. We're losing civility, and in so many ways we're losing the ability to have thoughtful dialog and discourse about these big issues, because everyone increasingly goes to their ours in corners, and and and draws the line and I've seen that development even since I've been in Congress.

They came with a very different approach to governance than even their colleagues on that side of the aisle.

I believe I knew his heart I believe he genuinely cares about a all of America that he wants when he says put America first. He. He means that he wants to defend. What's great about our country to return to greatness as he likes to say and in the ways to do that is very complex, and it's again difficult waters to navigate I. Just thought it was disappointing.

George was kind of every day. fellow he has made a mistake since spent some time in jail came out on to turn his life around us every man, trying to make a better life for himself in a country still dominated by white rules and white people, and and the fact that is an every man. It's an order rather ordinary fellow like so many other people in this country who has become the symbol of perhaps a new unity in our effort to change the way race relations are conducted in this country, so that went through my mind as I was watching and listening to the funeral. So I WANNA. Ask You with the long view of history. Why do you think you've eloquently stated what an every man he was? But why do you think his murder? His brutal killing in full view of the public. Why do you think this is what has changed? The level of movement galvanized not just Americans across the country, and as you say of of all races, but also across the world. What was different? About about George. Floyd, you think than Eric Garner or Michael Brown or the other names that have become synonymous of this terrible injustice in the United States. Is Death was prolong. It happened over nine minutes of our of our watching We'd never most none of us. Today saw lynching, although although Americans used to go by the hundreds and thousands to view black men and black women being lynched in the early days of the last last century, we watched it. We watched that policeman put his. Is Knee directly own this man's neck and willfully. And nonchalantly four apply that pressure. And you know when he kept saying I can't breathe. I can't breathe as Eric Garner I kept thinking what happens. When America's democracy says? Can't breathe. I can't breathe. Can't America. Die Of too little air..

"Conversation with Rosh Matthias now back to our program. These are some honest conversations this book, really triggers, these honest conversation. Excuse me. In terms of becoming a said, I'm a naturalized citizen. And when you said. Did I earn it? What did what did? I do. I remember going for my interview my mid twenty s this was in San Diego, and I went to the gentleman and he's giving me his test. And I believe at the time was asked three questions, and I studied I've moved here from India when I was in first grade, so educated public schools on the peninsula here in the bay area right next to you. Thank you. He goes I question who's the vice president for Theodore Roosevelt? The branches the government. That's what I know, sir, sir. I don't know it. He goes, okay. Second question. What was the congressional act of eighteen seventy two way. No. Is something to do with native Americans Mamiit. Sorry. I'm over to now. Third question. Another random question, you have to be a PHD to get this stuff. And I didn't get it. And he says sorry young man. I go, you know, with all due respect, sir. I'm educated here. I've gone through public schools. I go graduated from San Diego State university. I'm the best you got. I don't know what to say. And he goes sorry. And as he is signing, the whatever the Bard not not allowed. He says, oh, you're sportscaster for NBC wild the Detroit Red Wings. Gosh. They just won the Cup was that awesome. Yeah. There are great. The Russian skaters are beautiful. It's like watching ballet on ice wonderful. I love the Red Wings. Okay. You're good science goes. I rarely told that story, but you you tell me about. Aren't as opposed to ask the questions from the booklets? There was a booklet, and he was looking at the questions. I don't know what he was looking at. But he sent me through. Oh my God. So I was confused went to my little party with my friends and family that was naturalized citizen, but it was a confusing time. So and that's me having spoken the language. Well, assimilated doing everything you're supposed to do with darker skin. But things happen, but see that term assimilated like, I know one of the things that was really hard to write about the bulk was the moment, I found that I was here illegally. The first thing I had to do was get rid of the galaxy which is kind of like that. Right. And thank God for Bill moyers. I finally got to thank them in person. Because I studied how Bill moyers spoke on PBS. So I had Bill moyers had Mike Wallace. And then I had Dr drain to buck. Good. So I figured if I could sound like all of them I would pass. And then when I didn't realize that part of the passing was isolating myself from my Filipino family. How embarrassed I was that even though my grandma is a naturalized citizen. She was afraid to ask the guy at Safeway or with the toilet paper was because their English is broken. And when I was a kid how embarrassed I was by that. Right. I was ashamed of her. I was like how can she not know English? And then it took me when I was older to like be embarrassed of myself for even thinking that. So what this assimilation mean for people and how again in the book, I really there's a great reporter. I think the San Francisco weekly here who read the book, and then said to me. I kept looking for the term immigration reform in despoil. Can I couldn't find it? And I said, yeah. Because I never used it. Because I wanted to really have a different kind of conversation that's not about policy and not about immigration reform and not even about, you know, put them called immigration. I wanted to get at something harder. Which is like how does this feel and I that didn't really become real until I wrote the book, and then there was at one part in the book when I wrote about being detained in Texas. Ended up writing that home is not something I should have to earn. I was thinking an Airbnb Berkeley not far from the fills coffee after I wrote it in the computer screen. I literally I was so afraid of what I wrote that I got out of the house, and I just like walk for miles because I couldn't believe that. It took me twenty years to say that to myself that I thought I had to earn what this is. But I actually believe that. I thought you make money get a good resume you pass. Then you earn it you're done. And so then I wonder how many other people right now documented or undocumented all those people, you know, the stories for me of H one B visa and the people who get H one D visas and kind of the relationship that we have with their employers like what is that about right? And that's what I'm really interested in. Now. I think is because nothing's going to happen. I don't think. Well, hold on a second. I shouldn't say that Nancy Pelosi is going to be the speaker of the house who knows what she's going to do. But I don't know. I don't know. But like, meaning I don't know how they're gonna pass immigration reform. I will tell you though, the moment that they say that we would have to spend ten billion dollars to to fund the wall. So they can pass immigration from Alvidi very first person. And Rachel Maddow show saying I don't agree with that. I would rather. I would rather us make college more affordable and spend ten billion dollars doing that. Then spent a single cent trying to protect you from the border that you don't even really understand. Right. Like, we should not. This is not a time to be simplistic. You know, it's not a time to have these patent back conversations. This is now a time. I think for us to dig a little deeper and get more uncomfortable. You've been very proactive and something that thank you spearheaded was language in how media organizations, I believe the AP. Yeah. I believe CNN, and I will say at NBC we also don't use the term illegal immigrants. We use the term undocumented immigrants. Not everyone does that. But I believe you're guiding force behind that we have I know you'll go to define American dot com. And you'll see words matter, and you know, what I love is. Now, we have college newspapers and high school newspaper signing on. And again, this is not about being politically, correct. Let's actually break this down. So right now in the year at times has website where they do this study about there's less quote unquote, illegal immigrants, so they break the story down. And then they say they talk about DACA recipients. So that right there is actually factually incorrect, the DACA recipients have temporary status from the government. So therefore, they're not quote, unquote illegal. I think that language itself gets in the way of actually finding out more information like we could say. Here's an example, this person who's undocumented, comma who overstayed their visa, comma who was brought illegally as a child karma who lost his status after H one B visa expired that gives you more information about what happened right which would actually lead to people understanding what the issue is instead of just blindly saying illegal criminal alien people. And the fact that the New York Times is still doing that. And it's something today. I didn't realize that I'm Facebook friends with dean Becky, and Marty baron in my Facebook thing, I didn't know until today there's editors of the New York Times and the Washington Post actually tagged them like, hey, can you stop doing this in the past? I think I would have been to, you know, I'm I'm respectful right on my grandmother raised me. Well, so oh, you know, I would have been an open letter. I would have been now it's like, yo what is this really about? Right. Like when are we gonna win? Why are we surrendering to Trump's language? Speaking of language. Thanks again. Thank you to the Mountain View, Los Altos public libraries. I was introduced to twenty Morrison as early as I was Toni Morrison if you go to Google or YouTube, you'll find a speech that she gave when she won her Nobel prize for literature. Probably the best probably the most potent speech ever, given about the power of language, and I memorized this because interestingly enough, she gave the speech in December nine hundred ninety three I arrived in this country in August three. And then the speech, she says, you know, we die that may be the meaning of life, but we do language that may be the measure of our lives. And I think for me given the work that I do and even with this book is creating a different kind of language. So that people can understand the humanity of an issue that is not only been so politicized. But it's been so rendered toxic lake people are actually more than issues. We are not issues. We're people right. So the language around that I think is probably going to be the work of my life. Whether or not they decide to detain me. And deport me or not because they words matter images matter, especially in my point of view in my business, and I'll notice things and just a couple of days ago. I noticed one photo of king load men running across the border, an aggressive fashion the pictures show that next photo is the the woman carrying two six year old girls. One at a diaper in sandals MSNBC will show the woman with the two kids in the diapers. Fox will show the forty men running across the border. So before the words can even come out of anyone's mouth the images their images matter. Do you guys work with that as well that and for us, it's not only in the news media? But in the entertainment major Hollywood, I know you're being worked. So right now, this is. One of the growing part of a work of define American. So we we have consulted on like forty two shows and movies. So whatever they think give an example. So after Trump said he was getting rid of dot com. One of the first people to reach out to me was shonda rhimes because she's amazing. So shonda was like how can we help? This is horrible Purity's incredibly eloquent Email, and she said how can we help inform the public and what this is about? So we ended up doing was we sent there's about one hundred undocumented medical students in America today who have Dr. So there are a lot of them, by the way, our daily with hospitals are like we don't want it. We don't know what we're going to do with your doctor expires can we have an undocumented doctor, you know, working at the hospital. I don't know don't we need more doctors. So we sent five undocumented medical students to her writer's room in grace anatomy, and created an entire episode on that. And according to the New York Times, there was an article after the election. The television shows you watch is a greater indicator of who you voted for it in the political party you belong to in the last election, and grace anatomy is one of the top ten popular shows for Trump voters. Yup. You have that in common with Trump voter. What about if you like this is us any funny? We've tonight is the finale so so we've done we've done so data's been up a flag that we planted, and this is really where they LGBT rights movement, in my opinion, really paved the way for this. Like, you know, I remember in what I write about this like I'll never forget seeing Ellen Degeneres and the cover of time magazine when I was in high school. Right. Will and grace was the number one show on television for what six seven years, right? Whereas a straight queer eye for the straight guy the first version before net flicks, right? Meaning pudding LGBTQ characters on television..

"And so I give you the benefit of the doubt. Because you couldn't understand them. I am married to someone who is not black and all the time at desensitize them to issues around race. And that's not because he doesn't care. I know he loves me. But I know that there are times that I have to provide a lens for him with which to see or experience things as I am experiencing them. And that does not in any way diminish my lover respect for him. It just says what and has experienced what have this be possible that he could see this, right? And how it's playing out from the is to which I see it when I walk into a room. I can notice not because I'm counting. I can just feel when it's just me. I can tell you George doesn't until. You know a few years ago. He never thought about that. Now, we'll go certain places. Like, you're the only black person. I'm like, yeah. I'm like it's interesting you notice that now because why would he notice before can you talk a little more about about your relationship with George Lucas? And how the tout I mean, you two aren't an astonishing duo is there a sense of which one plus one equals more than two. Well, there's no question. There's a lot of good things that come out of the combination. And it's not one plus one equals two it's one. Plus one equals ten we've been able to enrich each others lives and recognize the platforms that we have in our individual ways and help magnify them. Give each other different perspectives in a different lens in which to operate and that has been a gift. So I think for as much as Georgia's affected me, which is profoundly. I have also affected him. He sees injustice said, but he always saw. That, you know, he's a he's he's a fighter in his own unique way has stories suggest that I think you acquitted wants to saying in a sense you with the same person. What did you mean by that? We are George says that we share a core value when we got married Bill moyers was the officiant at our our marriage. And he says, you know, when you fall in love your minds friend, and I met my mind's friend. You know, I met this person who so clearly reflected so many of my values, but who came in a different package and a different age and a different race and a different life experience. And all of that was enriching. So it wasn't a color brave moment because I was never I I didn't need to make that leap emotionally or otherwise in terms of love. I just didn't. I didn't I didn't have any blinders on I didn't have any. I didn't have any idea. I didn't find myself to what was possible that really. I was more of like anything could happen. And in fact, anything debt, that's what. So for the long term is this in the long term is it okay to dream about color blindness. And I mean, this in the sense that you know, it used to be that race was this hugely significant distinction among people that that people were almost different species because they were different colors. We now most of us believe that color of skin is really the least interesting thing about someone that people's current to people's skills people's dreams people's hopes. These are the things that matches. So is it possible to dream of a future world where there actually is cut blindness. The people that those because because the world has become just a because they're on't groups who are unfairly left behind for example, mistreated or not included the that you can get to that kind of world in the ultimate in the long term. That would be a better world. Wow. That's a really great question. Because I I do believe in playing long ball at area. We have a turtle as logo when we say slow and steady wins the race. Here's my conundrum. And I'm I'm you're hitting me cold, and I'm trying to think out loud here on the one hand. I learned this from Wynton Marsalis..
