You might have to look it up Jin, but they're saying that to make our wrongs, right? We should African Americans. Problem with that is how my family my family came from Sicily in Ireland, and they didn't have any money and had nothing to do with slavery. So what are we talking about you? We can keep going back. Like, you say you can keep going. How far do we go back? Exactly. Then what the native American League pulled up? None of you that we let exactly, but, but then the argument there's the name Mickens do receive payments exactly who pays for it. But the government does pay the native Americans, but yes, they do. But then what about the Jews everyone's in sleigh? This led the Jews are the Jews who had their properties confiscated. And then, you know, the money was the German money when it comes kit, and they put their money into Swiss banks a lot of them have seen some of their money. But can I say this, and I hope this doesn't upset people. But so those native Americans that are getting reparations they were getting reparations. Now, they have they still do they get government funding loans for colleges. How are they doing as a society? You know, they've had some challenges. Yeah. That challenge. I don't think reparations is the answer. I don't think that's the answer. At all. I don't think it's the answer. In fact, I think it does more damage also. But they also want to say get rid of all everything that reminds you of reparations and statues and stuff like that. But then it's like, well, how far you want to go back because with George Washington, then we got we get rid of all the guys on money one of the things. But that Fidel's the time when you say knowing that is one of the things you'll always here is from both sides left, and right, but one of the things oh Sheila jackson-lee people say, hey, we need spend more money on poverty. Okay. The problem with that is that since the new deal, I think something like three trillion dollars system spent on poverty programs in this country. So it's not just about the government spending money on poverty. There's there. That's not a creative way to look at things. It's not just about taxing the very rich and giving it to quote, unquote, the poor those ideas have been tried forever. That's they're very uncreative way to solve quote, unquote, poverty. First of all people don't stay in poverty. A lot of time. Sometimes they go out. They come out of poverty, they start poor. They get rich. They it all depends. It's a very complicated issue. But I don't think giving money to people based on their ancestors. Suffering is. What what warehousing? Well, we do have. So so we have a lot of we have a lot of the housing Ford. -able housing projects. We we spent a great deal of money on poverty. The we still have poverty, we still have people who can't afford rent fire me. Fire me fuck, man. High man already. You're the good Ray. I got nervous. I don't want to be fired. I knew it. Yeah. So I don't know. There's got to be a better way. I thought it was interesting though. But I mean, I don't know how far back you'd go to make it. Right. Well, that's the problem. That's why reparations to me doesn't make a lot of sense. You know, just white people enslaved as well. I'll see different in America. But white people in all people. Can stop.

"The most remarkable ones in an all modern history the british navy the royal navy was the most powerful navy on earth and at the time of the american revolution the navy was able to have blocked all of the ports of the american american columnists every one of them they could have blocked them and stopped all the trade of the columnist to to europe and to for the rest of the world and starve trade and black backseat revolutionaries into a corner in which they would have had to deal with the people who were not sympathetic to them in america that's correct and now the words the the the the people who were loyalists in america then would have come to the fore and let's let's make a compromise and that that is what the royal navy could have achieved and they wouldn't other words would never been in a necessity whatsoever for any field campaigns throughout the colonies that was the great weakness of the british army that they could not march all over a thousand miles of of north america and and defeat the americans because that was simply impossible but the british chose to use their army which was their weakest military unit in a frontal fashion which was exhausting and indeterminate because all the americans had to do was not lose washington lost every battle and he won the war loss every single battle except the last one it's in the crack now this is the genius of sunset you do you combine the orthodox maneuver with the unorthodox chinese words for this jiang being an orthodox is what the enemy expects you to do is that correct well it's the direct approach is in other words that orthodox is unusual the things that is normally done yes the the key is unorthodox the thing that is not normally done but they're done in conjunction and and and it can be and it can be reversed in other words the usual key can be reversed to the to the thing but normally that the the direct approach that the one you would expect to do now the worst enemy sitting on this hill he would expect to attack him directly hill that would be thing let's example here she would be around him in some fashion let's give an example from nineteen forty eric von stein for hitler the jiang the orthodox was to go through belgium the way they had in the first war right well what the situation in europe in nineteen forty walls but the french had established this socalled measuring though mine which was an impenetrable line along different prince german frontier there's no way that they that the germans could attack directly so they had to go through belgium everybody knew that and he said one student belgium then the the the allies british and the french were already prepared to go into belgium and to set up a line along just along along the river just east of brussels and stop them and so everybody knew this was going to happen to the germans knew it and of course they allies were already prepared to do it so this was the attack that and man stein said to hitler to go ahead and make this attack make it look like a horrible huge the total effort of the german army will be directed against this this this this location of the british and the french are going to set up for and then all while they're completely absorbed in this then attack suit er dense which is a forested region to the south and come across and get across the muse river at sedan which then would put the german army behind the allied army and that's exactly what they did good derian tanks france's role through the are dan they cut off the french and the english and only hitler held them back from capturing the whole of the british army isn't that isn't that astonishing and amazing that man who stopped the german army was that dolph hitler nineteen forty british and not the french the final recommendation it'll become obvious as we apply it to historical examples says make sure your commanders are very very bright and can think for themselves so when we come back we're going to go to gettysburg at gettysburg the book is sunset gettysburg ancient military wisdom in the modern world bevin alexander i'm john batchelor this is the john batchelor show balance of nature's fruits and veggies in a capsule on mark gastineau i played in the nfl for ten years i was diagnosed with c t e with dementia alzheimer's.
