The Left's Woke Indoctrination of the Military With Nick Freitas
"It would be seriously remiss of me if I didn't ask you this question given your background. So my background, so I'm an immigrant, a legal immigrant. I naturalized in 2012, ended up in The White House working for president Trump. But for about the last decade, I had quite a close relationship with Bragg. I've been teaching as a guest instructor on the Q course, the 18 alpha officers course, and also warrant offices, the 18 alpha course as well. The one 81 80 alpha as well. And I love it. And I love those guys, especially when you're talking to warrants, you know, who've had 9, 9 tools in the sandbox. You're not teaching them anything. You're standing there with a card rate just listening to what they have to say. But given that association, what we've witnessed in the last 16 months, your well plugged in with your brotherhood back at bragging elsewhere. Your reaction, your comments, to what is politely turned, the work efficacy of the American military, what we've seen in terms of the pride flag being flown over the air force recruits in that recent Twitter ad, Mark milley saying, yes, we have I'm white and we have to understand white rage. How bad is it? What are you hearing and how concerned are you as a former operator? Well, people are people are very frustrated because they feel like I saw this tweet today and they were talking about the navy pushing for safe spaces. And like, you know, it used to be that the safe space, the military was responsible for was the United States and keeping it safe from foreign militaries and foreign threats. Now all of a sudden, the military is once again become a Petri dish for social engineering. For the left. And there's a lot of frustration because again, if you go into the military and I think especially certain careers in the military that you know are going to put you in a great deal of danger. There's a certain expectation that you're going to have a strong grip on reality because you don't get to play the games that we do in the sociology class at Cal Berkeley when it gets to the battlefield. Things like biology matters, reality matters. And when you start to ignore that, people die from that. That's not a, this is not the typical Elizabeth Warren where if you don't agree for every regulation she likes, you want people to die. No, we operate in an environment where people die when we don't recognize reality. If you deny reality that'll cost.

Kurt Schlichter's Reaction to US Military Going Woke Under Joe Biden
"Back. He's none other than Kirchner, we call him his friends call him colonel K, Kurt, welcome to America first one on one. Thanks for having me, doctor gorka. All right, so where do we begin so much to discuss that is utterly in your Wheelhouse? We could talk geopolitics, Ukraine, Second Amendment. We could talk about the sus men. Let's start with the Second Amendment as a man who's protected the streets of Los Angeles in a uniform. I need to get your sagacious interpretation of what on God's green earth, the incumbent in The White House was saying when he said this. What was the one out of the box? So the idea is I caliber weapons. It was just simply no rational basis for it. In terms of what we see about self protection money, 9 millimeters and a hunting, blowing your lungs out of you at 22s are much better. I don't know if you can make any sense of it, but I know one thing for sure colonel K I wish I had a dollar for every one of your tweets where you said buy a gun and buy more ammunition because you'll rather outspoken on this, give us your reaction to you valid in general and then to the brain farts of that man. Well, doctor gorka, I think the reaction to president Gumby was best exemplified by the Secret Service agent standing off to his left going. I've got a I've got a 40 Cal in my holster here. Yikes. You know, we laugh at the liberals when they talk about guns and they get it wrong. You know, nobody should be able to buy an automatic weapon. Well, I wish we could buy automatic weapons. But we can't right now. And it just goes on from there, you
Charlie Speaks at Dayspring Christian's 'Remember America' Series
"And last week I was in boulder, Berkeley and Cal state Fullerton. So it's a lot different of a reaction. I know some of you are booing, totally understandable, right? You should boo Berkeley. It's a very dark place to give you an idea how dark Berkeley is. I had to bring a deliver in sky with me. Just in case. Victor marks, if you know who I'm talking about. But here's the amazing thing. And there's something so special happening in our country. When I visited Berkeley in boulder last week, we had a major problem. And it wasn't antifa. It wasn't all that nonsense. We couldn't find rooms big enough to fit all the students that wanted to come to our events. On campus. Very special. So I traveled 330 days last year all across the country. I'm doing three podcasts today, a couple hours of radio. And I'm in the education space, but a little different than day spring. I go to hostile territory and try to spread truth where there is none. And tonight, we get to celebrate and support a place that is full of truth and full of light for liberty. It's a little different, but the same thing, really, because we're trying to raise up a generation to understand what they've been given. We as human beings all have a lot in common. One of the things we all have in common is that we've all been born into a world we did not create. So we're born into a set of circumstances that are not our own. And boy, are we blessed to be born in the set of circumstances in the United States of America? And that statement alone is agreed upon by basically all of you. But it's now wildly controversial to say that in most schools today. In fact, it's four and it's a concept that most young people when I come and I talk about how America is the greatest nation ever to exist in the history of the world, how the constitution is the greatest political document ever written. They want to believe it because in the soul of a person is a yearning to want to actually love the place that you're from. But there's this disconnect between all the propaganda that they've been led to believe and first what they are all of a sudden hearing what they know to be true. And I think one of the reasons for that is actually
The Left and Their Fight Against Truth
"I'd like you to see my column today. My website, town hall, RealClearPolitics that will move on to daily wire, American great mist, et cetera. But you could start with money website or town hall or RealClearPolitics. About how PolitiFact lied about me, purely a 100% lie, said that what I said was false. And I prove it's a lie. They quote left wing liars to support their lie. And. I'm thinking of suing one of the leftists that they cited, the man who was the director of the center to promote hate at Cal state San Bernardino. Its official name is what the hell is its official name? Let's see. I love the official name. Find center. Yeah, center for the study of hate them extremism. It's the center to promote hate him extremism. They got one word wrong. Guy named Brian Levin, whom I might sue. For saying I lied. I don't. I don't care when I'm cold beans, but that's the one thing that I staked my life really, my reputation on being a truth teller.
Politifact Should Be Called Politifalse
"So I demolished PolitiFact demolished the middle effect, PolitiFact, as my title is PolitiFact is the fact what proved it was the truth. They used the name, but it's a gigantic lie. You should read my column, it's up at you putting up the RCP so I'm Dennis pretty good dot com. The column is a tennis program dot com, but if you want to go to, if you want to send it to somebody, maybe send it from RealClearPolitics because that's not a conservative site. And let me give you some of the examples. I'm consulting with a lawyer about suing the I don't know if I will. I want to check what the what would be involved. The fact that PolitiFact is just the left wing lying institute. And the pointer institute which funds them is that they went to an America hater named Brian Levin, director of the center for hating America. Oh, sorry. Center for the study of hate and extremism at Cal state San Bernardino. Yes, they not only study hate, they promulgate hate there. Mister prager is long on hyperbole and bigotry and short on facts, what prager claim is a lie. Okay, so since what I said is true and nobody refuted it, I think what he said about me qualifies as defamation,
Balancing Conversations With Liberal Friends and Family
"Hey Charlie, my name is Jonathan. I go to cast a Fullerton. And I guess I have a simple question. Like in a family full of conservatives, we're kind of the minority in the grand family. I just want to know how I can converse with the rest of my family being like liberal. And especially my Friends as well. Without obviously causing Discord in too much hurt, I guess. Yeah. Well, never be the source of hurt. That's my first piece of advice. So don't be the one to call names or try to disassociate from people. But I think every conservative here in this audience would agree that you lost friends, but they left you. You didn't leave them. And I never support the severing of friendships over politics. But I'm also realistic. It happens all the time where people stop being friends with you because of politics. I bet every single person in this room could resonate with that. So look, this is a, this is a situation where you're going to have to balance. Are you going to tell the truth when there might be a consequence to it? And it's also how you say it. It's also how you communicate it, having that balance of a 100% grace with a 100% truth, trying to be magnanimous, and how you communicate, I think is really, really important. But also, you know, understanding that in family dynamics, you have to prioritize whether or not you want the family to kind of stay together, whether or not you want to make a political point. And I don't say this advice lightly. There's some politics that there's some families that should never discuss politics. And there's an argument for that. It's like they're so rigid in their beliefs. It's just going to cause a Civil War. Now, some people say, you know what? I'm going to say what I want to say and I know personally. Dozens of examples of parents that don't talk to children anymore. I think that's really unhealthy. I think it's not good at all. But it's a balance. I think that everyone should know where you stand. And then the final piece of advice is go to work on a family member where there's a little bit of openness.
Ensuring Good Education in a Post-CRT World
"Point chapter at your Belinda high school. Awesome. So last week on April 5th in a three two vote, my school board passed a resolution to ban critical race theory in my district. So my question is, what's the next steps to ensuring that we have a good education, even after that ban? That's great. So it's a two part dance. So that's great. Now you need to say, okay, let's get pro American curriculum in our schools. So what does that look like? Hillsdale college has done a lot of work in this. We're starting to do a lot at turning point USA. But we have to teach people, what is the American story? What is the problem? What is the proper way to view American history? What is America? Was it a mistake? Was it something that has kind of fell out of the sky? There's just a couple of things I'll share here that I think could really excite high school students that they're definitely not taught in school. America was summoned into existence at a time and a place that is very unusual. In fact, it's almost never happened before in human history. Most civilizations are countries stumble into existence. They're not summoned into existence. I want you to think about that. There was a decision to create America. China just kind of existed and it was kind of the Yangtze River valley civilization is kind of built into itself. In this river valley in India and so on and so forth. But America was a group of people that made a decision founding fathers. We have a set of principles. We don't like what's happening. We're going to declare independence of things that are always true. And I'm afraid that most young people are not just being taught that even we're serving taught the opposite. They're being taught to the founding fathers were racist bigoted slave owners. And they don't know their history. They don't know that the first antislavery convention in America was hosted in Philadelphia by Benjamin Franklin in 1775. They don't know that 9 out of 13 states before the constitution was ratified in 1787 had already independently abolished slavery. They didn't a lot of young people never top that Vermont was the first state to abolish slavery in 1777, inspired by the Declaration of Independence. So the next step is get your local school districts and not just teach this, but inspire young people to be excited about the country they live in. A lot of young people, I think, are
Charlie's Advice for Students Being Alienated for Their Beliefs
"I was wondering if you could give some encouraging words to students who are being alienated by teachers. Their communities and their friends because of their Christian or conservative values. That's a really important question. So students that raise your hand if you think you've been great at differently or treated differently because your beliefs basically every hand goes up. So that's right. Marco says worth it. Yeah, look, I want to say this. So there's a disagreement on the right. And I have a lot of respect for Ben Shapiro, but he has a different answer than I do on this. And I'll kind of say this. So Ben, and this is not precisely your question, but I'll incorporate it. So the question, here's the question, do you lie on your term paper or how you present yourself to your professors to get a good grade? That's a question a lot of people ask, right? It's easier to kind of hide and to not confront things. So Ben says, yes, lie, misrepresent your beliefs, get the good grade and get through college or high school. I see it differently. I do not believe getting a good grade is nearly as important as creating strong people, filled with integrity, willing to fight for truth at all. And so now why am I bringing this up? Because if you wanted to kind of, those of you that are conservative, wanted to have an easier life than just pretend to not be a conservative and just keep your head down and just pretend to be something that you're not and delete your social media. I think there's a lot more important things in life than that. So the word of encouragement is this first something that is true that you don't want to hear and then something that is true that you probably will want to hear. It's never going to stop. You will be harassed called names, demonized, victimized. You will be smeared and slandered. You will lose a lot of your friends. And you'll doubt whether it's all worth it. Sound fun, right? Well, here's the second thing though. You will be a stronger, tougher, more resilient person that will look around at your peers one day while they're worried about whether or not they're being called the right pronouns, and you will be you will have your direction, you'll have resolve, you'll have an intestinal fortitude. You'll have Gusto that will run circles around an increasingly fragile society and you will have what is so lacking in America
We Need to Move Away From Dense Rental Housing AKA Liberal Hotbeds
"So I went super viral yesterday. I don't have you guys know. I don't have Twitter. We can wait so great when you don't have Twitter and someone texts you that you're trending on Twitter. It's awesome. It's like, so I did something worthy of still trending on that godforsaken website at wasteland. It's so funny when they're tweeting at me on Twitter. I'm like, you realize I don't have like okay, sure. So I said something at CU boulder that's really true, which is that we want we should make it a goal to try to have more young people to own property and make it easier for young people to be able to own property, that we need to have less renters and more people that own property. And at times, there's an unexpected cost and this is a thought experiment, and it's proven through data. There's an unexpected cost to having development that prioritizes renting, especially development that goes over 5, ten, 15, 20 stories. In fact, when you have concentrated population density, those areas tend to be a lot more liberal than areas that would be more suburban or rural. Now, I said this and I said it in a way that really bothered people where I said that tall buildings can be a prerequisite towards a city all of a sudden taking a turn away from being a conservative city to a liberal city and they just like lost their mind like how dare you blame tall buildings. I was like, okay, well, obviously I'm not blaming the height of the building, right? I'm making an argument that population density and having people living on top of one another creates a couple of factors. Like the tragedy of the commons. When everyone owns something, nobody owns it. And so you're not actually responsible for the dog park, you're like one 100th responsible for it. And then all of a sudden, you might be using more public transportation than driving yourself so you're not as connected what gas prices might be. Or a car insurance payment. I'm not saying there's anything inherently wrong with those things, but they definitely foster an environment that makes you look at things more collectively and less individually or kind of less in a way of what are all these different factors. And you guys know this when you rent, there's a way to find out, but a lot of people pay rent without actually looking at their bill, you're usually immune, not immune but you're not totally dialed into what the property taxes are and to kind of what all the other factors are. You just kind of pay your rent and you move on. But when you own a home, you know what your property tax bill is. And you know whether or not property values are going up or not. And so I said this, they lost their mind. I totally stand by it. I don't know why that was just like such a triggering thing, but like we should try to encourage young people in particular to try to own homes and to try to actually be able to be in communities that are not as population dense as urban cities that I believe actually create liberal thinking habits and behavioral habits.
Elon Musk Is an Example of What We've Lost Over the Past Few Decades
"We're at this moment where Elon, and this is what I really want to kind of focus in on, which is Elon is an example of what I think we've lost in the last 20 or 30 years, which is someone with legitimate power outside of the government coming in and fighting for regular people. And that is something that was worthy of reflection for a couple of moments, right? Because we're used to the opposite. We're used to Zuckerberg putting $400 million into our elections to have mail in ballots go everywhere, right? We're used to kind of this idea of, you know, CNN and all these massive mega corporations coming in and crushing the week. And kind of out of nowhere, the very person who is a creation of the American left and I'll prove it to you in a second is now the person who is offsetting it. So a majority of Elon's wealth is because of the green energy nonsense that they've been pushing. If it's so hilarious, right? Elon is only powerful because they want to get rid of fossil fuels. So they want to get revolve fossil fuels and drilling. Well, someone has to be a beneficiary. Okay, the electric car guy gets all the money. The problem is they did not realize they couldn't control him. So like one of the, one of the tweets here is from this person, I don't know, their name. Elon Musk is why we need to abolish billionaires. Okay. Asking them, asking them to chip in their fair share isn't enough. Regulating them isn't enough. This is a bleach check mark person on Twitter. When people are allowed to acquire this month's concentrated influence, they'll inevitably manspread economic power into every other form of power.
Why Charlie Was Banned From Twitter and Didn't Grovel To Get Back On
"I want to talk about a couple of things in particular, and then we can go into some Q&A, which is obviously the most fun part of all this. So I don't have a Twitter account currently. So I got banned from Twitter. You might know this. So this has been one of the most interesting unexpected news cycles in my whole ten years of doing this. So I got banned from Twitter for participating in dead naming. Do you guys know what dead naming is? Okay, I didn't know before I tweeted. So here's one of the things and I'm technically suspended from Twitter, not banned just to get the words correctly. We'll get into what that means. So here's how you know you're living in kind of a tyrannical moment. When you can't keep track of all the rules that you're supposed to follow, I mean, if you're like me, I can't keep track of all of them, right? They're going to kick you out of a social club or social media because you're like, wait, what even is that? So I tweeted out, I think a month ago about the current health czar, a person by the name calls themselves the name Rachel Levine, whatever, okay? And I said this person used to have a name Richard Levine for 54 years of their life and then transitioned. Okay, whatever. And I said that in a tweet and then you can't even use the name that used to exist, right? Can't do that. It's called dead naming, so you lose your account for that. And then in kind of like a Soviet show trial way, Twitter comes out and they say, okay, in order to get your Twitter account back, you have to admit that you violated our hate speech policies and press the delete button. So we very well could have done that. But happened to the Babylon B like two days before that. And then it happened to us. And I thought to myself, you know, I traveled to these events all across the country. And I tell young people involved at turning point USA, you know, it's worth fighting for conservative values. But it might cost you
If California Weather Was Like North Dakota, There'd Be Nobody Left
"But it's great to be here. I love California. Let me say this this way. I love parts of California. Well, I don't know. Let me say it differently. I love the people of Calvin. I love some of the people of California, but I have a whole theory on California, and it really is a test of how important is whether in your life. That really is the question, right? I mean, you wake up, I woke up very early this morning. And a morning in Southern California say, all right, 18% income tax, homelessness, vagrancy crime. All right, if this is the trade off, then so be it. It really is the great test of weather. Because I guarantee you if California was like Fargo North Dakota in the winter, there would be nobody left.

"cal" Discussed on The Slowdown
"When I first started meditation, one of the concepts that I read about in Sharon Salzburg's book, loving kindness, was called sympathetic joy. It's known as mudita in the Pali language. Salzburg describes it as the specific form of joy that comes from taking genuine delight in the happiness of others. In an article from tricycle magazine, she writes among Buddhism's four immeasurables of loving kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity. Sympathetic joy can be the most difficult to develop. I was blown away by this concept at first. After years in New York, after years in the arts, it was easy for me to think that life was a competition. That you competed for the part for the publication for the partner for the apartment for the best dressed for the best job. It wasn't so much a choice as it was a given. Hammered in. How could I be happy for someone else if they got everything I wanted? I'd see someone holding hands with their partner when I didn't have one and feel physically ill sometimes. I'd hear about someone's good news and I do my best to pretend I was happy. But deep down, something felt a skew. Then I learned about sympathetic joy, and really worked with the idea that happiness was not limited. There was not a finite amount. In fact, happiness could beget more happiness, happiness could be contagious, could be made to grow. It truly changed how I saw the world as an artist and as a human being. I'm not saying it doesn't take work, and I'm not saying MB doesn't poke its ugly head up now and again. But my understanding of sympathetic joy has fundamentally shifted, how I appreciate other people's joy. Today's poem is a breathtaking example of sympathetic joy. The complicated work of it, the way in which appreciating the joy of others, only highlights the joy, you already have. Blueberries for Cal. By Brenda shaughnessy. Watching little Henry 6. Scoop up blueberries and shovel them into his mouth, possessed. I'm so glad I brought blueberries, wish my kids could slash wood eat them. Cal can't. Simone won't. Henry's sisters Lucy and Jane took turns feeding each other goldfish crackers and sips of juice. Arms around each other's neck and back. Tiny things. I wish my daughter had a sister, like that. And my son, a nervous system, that let him walk, and munch berries. Sometimes I can't bear all the things Cal doesn't get to do. I want to curse everything. I can't give him. Admire slash compare slash despair. That's not the most real feeling I'm feeling. Is it? I feel joy and Henry's joy. Blueberries for the child who wants them. There's all this energetic sweetness. Enough to go around. To give and taste and trust, more than enough. For Cal too. I want to remember this. My children seem to subsist on music and frosting. Where there's frosting, there's cake. Where there's music, some one shows to make a song. Over all other things, on this earth..
Charlie Sees Such Great Promise Across the Country
"You asked a question about what I'm seeing. I'm seeing such great promise across the country. When we visit college campuses at turning point USA, we have a big problem. We can't find rooms big enough to be able to fit all the kids that want to show up to our events. At Berkeley, Cal Berkeley, everybody, the liberal epicenter, and look, I'm very sensitive to spiritual oppression. When you go to Berkeley, I literally brought a guy that does deliverance with me. Victor marks. You might know him. He's special. Has he ever spoke at this church? Oh, he should. He's great. I brought my own deliverance guy, okay? It's like some people will bring a personal trainer. You got to bring a delivery sky when you go to Berkeley. And we, there were people knocking on the Windows trying to get into our event at Berkeley that wanted to hear what we had to say. Couldn't find a room big enough. Same problem at Boulder. Same problem at Fullerton. Where was I last night? Yeah, and Milwaukee last night with Candace Owens. And we had so many people, the great Candace Owens. And we had so many people wanting to come in. And the polling shows this, by the way, the polling shows that most young people are dissatisfied with the regime, 21% approval rating of Joe Biden, but it's deeper than this the politics, right? That's just kind of their complaint against what's happening. There is a curiosity. There's a yearning.
"cal" Discussed on The Guilty Feminist
"I'm aware of his cleaning people with children who are much richer than me. I don't mean that, but I just mean if there's time available and bandwidth available I should do it. I had this revelation about myself. We know each of the fringe festival in Adelaide last year. In a glorious time, there was no lockdown. Every time I see a circus show or a burlesque show, I'm lift at the end of it going, is it too late to get bendy? Because they look at I look at people using their bodies all this fantastic way and I go, I can class it myself in a box like that contortionist like it's the thing it's the thing that I aspire to do that I've never got around to doing. Flexibility. Yeah, I've also realized that the biggest compliments, although the compliments that I receive as being the most available are from bindi people. So like if a circus performer that I've just watched fold themselves into a handbag and suit themselves on fire and fly around the teen, you look, someone who's done something extraordinary physical, physical, when they give me a compliment, I'm like, oh my God, the physical person that knows how to be physical, like it's just this weird thing. I think I have because it seems so far out of my reach to be, you know, to fly around on a hoop or fall down some silks or that kind of thing, not to say I don't love compliments from everybody, but I think it's because they do something that I can not imagine doing when they like what I do, which is just standing and chatting. It kind of goes in more. It's like yeah, it's like being noticed by the circus or something. Like response. So Cal Wilson's new pegs is compliments from bendy people. So if you were listening to this and you are in the circus, if you're somebody who can climb a silk silk rope or something like that, if you wouldn't mind tweeting Cal Wilson at Cal Wilson, is it that cowboy's not cowboy on Twitter at cowboy wiscon on Instagram? There's no to say that I don't really compliments from everyone, but it is just if you are going to compliment Cal could she just at least pretend to be someone who can fit yourself into a suitcase, just for her own psyche. It's a very specific fetish that she has. Shine me Debra. Now I do know what you mean because I think the same. I sort of think, what we do is chat or manipulating words for stand up. Yes. And is it really a thing? But of course, if you can't do that, if you're good physically, but you're not somebody who's intuitively verbal or intuitively comedic. You think that's the genius skill? The grass is always greener. And anything that comes to you naturally, you tend not to rate as much you go. That's true. So I think what you do is brilliant in a skill. And I would absolutely still admire it even if I could do the trapeze. I used to when I was training my sons and epi when he was a baby and effortless way he would put his feet in his mouth..

Really excited about the program. It adds a level of functionality on the fire. Line that you don't get with the inmate fire.

Fire has a dozen crews on duty with a plan and budget to hire more firefighters. In the coming years ripley. They're seeing a lot of fire. They are valuable resource. We're using them up and down the state back at the fire center. Captain brandon. Davis is trying to get his new team to trust one another to make them a true team working together. Let's get the slimmed up. We'll get the chipper over here. Tip everything out that direction. Firefighter michael chapman says they are becoming a team thing on the evil. We're all coming together. And we're all growing together becoming a stronger unit so our crew cohesions there are camaraderie is there. We can only go up from here. He says working together.

Every day every day we see somebody down we talked. It's really a mixed mixed bag of people that we're seeing that are participating in this program and really they all bring something to the table and this year especially with the being so dry.

Not only because are so explosive and dangerous but cal. Fire is in the middle of changing how things are done. California has long relied on low threat inmate firefighters to do the hard labor some of the most strenuous work of digging fire line. Stop flames using hand tools to dig down the mineral soil to take away any fuel for flames to burn but this year because of controversial criminal justice reform rules. Many of those inmates have been let out and cal. Fire doesn't have the inmates to rely on any longer. We are starting fresh and we can pick and choose and things that other agencies don't necessarily specialize in what they're doing here climbing and taking down trees captain brandon. Davis is leading this crew. Cal fire has been on a hiring blitz. instead of inmates. they'll now have full. Fledged paid firefighters doing the work. They're known as type one firefighters commanders. Say they're blown away by how many men and women wanna become firefighters. It's a mix of backgrounds and ages.

"Cal. If Oranienburg will cast their votes today in the recall election of governor Gavin Newsom, his facing strong criticism over his handling of the Covid 19 pandemic in his state. And Republicans are hoping to take control of the governor's office. The president was in Long Beach yesterday and slammed Newsom's competition clone. Of Donald Trump. Can you imagine him being governor of this state president, referring to the conservative candidate, Larry Elder, and we get the latest with kfbk is my glory on the situation. And Mike. How did this recall effort even start? Well, it started last year when there was a lot of anger about the pandemic and specifically some of the restrictions that were coming on regarding restaurants and school closures and that sort of thing, And then the thing that really catalyzed it was When Gavin Newsom was caught in the Prince Laundry, the famous restaurant in Napa County, California, where he had made restrictions about people not being able to meet in person and with math. And yet he was caught doing the very same thing and that kind of sparked the whole recall movement. But when you look at the voter makeup there in California Democrats outnumber Republicans What 2 to 1. So why did this get so close and down to the wire? And why is it now? An issue that may be Gavin Newsom will be recalled. Well, the Republicans were really successful in getting a lot of channeling a lot of that anger and getting it into voter turnout in terms of the reading terms of the recall position, so it qualified for the ballot, But we're seeing some numbers. Now that sports some really good hope for Gavin Newsom for his his team. We know that more than eight million people, California's have voted so far on the recall election That's about 36% of the electorate, then of those returned 52% of registered Democrats that's above their registration numbers. Of about 46%. So there They're outperforming the registration numbers. Republicans are about the same that 25% independent voters with no party preference 23%. But there's still about 14 million ballots yet to be returns. Mike I read this more to this is more about disliking Gavin Newsom them and it is necessarily loving. Obviously the leading candidate and Larry Elder is that correct? Yeah, There's a lot of, um, um mixed feelings about Gavin Newsom. Even from Democrats. They may like his policies, but they don't necessarily like him. Personally, They sometimes find them to be a little bit of loop or a little bit of an elitist. The French laundry incident being sort of a case in point, so there's no love lost there. But many Democrats are coming to the polls because of the Impotence of what's involved here. They know that they could lose not only the governorship, but ultimately, Dianne Feinstein leaves the Senate. It can be controlled the Senate as well. And who is Larry Elder? And why do Republicans like him? Very older as a conservative talk show host based out of Los Angeles, and he's been very, very popular with his face. He's also been successful in raising a lot of money. Um, so far he's raised about $11 Million 11.7 million, and that's far more than any of the other recall candidates on the Republican side or anywhere at all. But he's resonating with a lot of voters here. And Mike. It seems like that This recall has become nationalized. Obviously with the president. The vice president has Kamala Harris has roots Obviously there in California. How does that play in the state? I mean states here like Colorado? We don't like to be big footed nationally for our local elections. Is that having that that feelers that really helping Gavin Newsom Well, I would say it's definitely helping. We've seen a lot of big name coming to California the last couple of days. Joe Biden. President Biden was here yesterday as a matter of fact, meeting with Gavin Newsom to go over the wildfire damage in Northern California, and then he campaigned in Southern California in Long Beach last night, too. Urged voters to vote No on the recall. Before that, we had, um Kamala Harris, who, as you mentioned is a native Californian. She was here. The vice president was here last week. The campaign for Gavin Newsom and we've had also a lot of Add that have run, including former President Barack Obama. Who has weighed in an earth voters to vote. No, So in many cases, people don't like to be big footed, as you say. But in this case you have celebrities of star status who are resonating with voters and making a difference from KFBK in Sacramento. Mike Laurie, Thanks for the report. We appreciate it.

"Sugar and then we eat the snickers bar and you do that enough time to actually feel much worse so i think chronic overloaded really plays with our human psychology in a way that makes us really miserable and when we we really underestimate that you're asking the right. I think hyperactive hyphen does play a big role in it. I think when you reduce the friction involved in reaching out to someone and asking to do something or asking them a question or in six seconds you send an email that says thoughts question mark and you just added sixty minutes to work to their plate that i think did drastically increased the average number of obligations on the normal knowledge workers plate. Now there's other factors involved because we're overloaded outside work as well. There's cultural factors involved. But i think that's a really key point is that i document some examples about this as we shifted to this. Let's just figure things out. On the fly. The number of things we begin stacking on our plate the obligations we have to keep track of win from the reasonable amount to an overload level. And that is a huge background source of stress. Back to sort of personal agency here. What do you think any of us can do if we're stuck in an environment where our bosses are relying too much in the hyperactive hive. Mind or have expectations that are out of line with human capacity. Is there anything we can do other than quit. There are things you can do this. So there's a couple of things one. It is a useful exercise to actually just record. Write it down somewhere. These are the processes. I'm regularly involved with at my company and you can use your email inbox to help this just every time you get an email. Choose one day every time. Get an email. What's the underlying process emails involved with. What's the goal. This is trying to get to do again and again so you get this big list. Like here's the things i regularly do. And then you can start asking okay for each of these things. Given just what i can control so i can't control other people in this scenario. How can i change how i approach to these processes to at least reduce unscheduled messages. Being a part of it. And i think this is optimistic. There is often a lot you can do. Even if no one else is involved out from a psychology perspective. i suggest not advertising. You're doing this. Don't put on an auto responder that explains in great detail. The people exactly what your email habits are and why they're your email habits. They don't care that much is going to know him. Don't explain that you know you read cal newport's book and because of that you're trying to reduce cognitive context switching just implement and sometimes you can be stealthily recruiting people into these more structure processes. You don't call it that you just say like. Hey dan we have to get this report out. Here's what i suggest you know. I'll work on this monday and in the shared drive this google drive. I'll have my draft in there by the into business. Then you can take tuesday morning if you have any questions. I have office hours doing at noon. So just pop in there and ask me questions. And then you put your draft in their by the business on tuesday and then i had the production designer. Cc'd here so you know. Bob wednesday morning. You grab whatever google doc and it's ready for you to format in post. I've secretly recruited you all into an implementation of this process that requires no unscheduled message. But i didn't call it that. I didn't give a sermon about it. And explain why and dan and bob in this experiment this case study or just excited that okay good. There's a plan here. i don't have to worry about it. And they're moving on with their day and so you start reengineering. These processes to get away from unscheduled messages. Don't advertise it. You don't make a big deal about it. That alone can begin to have a significant impact. On how many of these unscheduled messages are showing up in demand in your response those reduce all of the stresses of the hyperactive high. Mind reduce i get that and i think that's a very attractive. It doesn't necessarily answer part of what i asked which is about you know having bosses who expect more than is humanly possible okay. So here's the second part and this is where it starts to get subtle because now we have to deal with power dynamics and human psychology and it can get subtle so now we get down to the art of audi basically say no pushed back without pushing back and saying no and once once you recognize what you're trying to especially when it comes to chronic overload. There's some things you can do so one thing you can do is introduce introduced friction into the quick question so this is a big offender. Is that a boss or someone. We'll just hit you with something. That took him seven seconds to write and they haven't even really thought it through. It's gonna take you an hour or two. You know to try to even figure out and get a response. And i was just answering just yesterday. I was recording an episode of my podcast. A reader was asking about exactly this question. She was in a law firm. Okay what you can do. There is introduced. Friction like Great i wanna to do this. Let's get an answer this. Let's talk so i can really work out what you're looking for here and you make sure i really understand what your issue is. I can get your really good answer so come grabbed me my office hours or tell me when you're or here's all the times i'm available or whatever you throw this friction and we're now they're going to have to become put aside some time..

I don't know if he is so there's no sign of Michelle and the hasn't been any sign of Michelle in intervening now nineteen years so they've never found the body. There is nobody this this is a is a no body case. So what happens is at some point. The New York State police do law enforcement agencies. Do all over the place. I mean they've cows given them already. Consensus Searches House. They do later on the combined with a search warrant than they do another search. Gather some you know. Do Crime scene photos rose forensic evidence elect good stuff in the case doesn't go to. They actually set up a surveillance on on cow. Sleepy confined where she is. You know that they slept talking to people. In Cal- harasses arrested by the New York State police in Tyler County District Attorney's Office Moore Year and a half two years later for the murder of Michelle. His wife it goes to trial is convicted at trial. Now he's a very interesting guy and I'm GonNa put this in in simple terms every pejorative description you've ever heard about a car. Dealer could probably fit cal Harris just just because someone may be a huckster or a a bit of a jerk doesn't necessarily mean they murdered anyone great but this is about two thousand try to right the first trial yes sometime sometime right around there. He's convicted he's kind of guy you know. A lot of people. People have strong opinions means about him in the neighborhood and this is this is a small county in upstate. New York you maybe twenty thousand people up there. So it's it's pretty rural and big large in Graphics is beautiful. Place gets convicted shortly after he gets convicted. A local farmer reading the story about the conviction in almost a day they later and he sees a picture cal. Harrison sees a picture of Michelle Harris and he looks he reads it needs realizes where they live and he goes go up and he says hey the murder case there yeah. I think I should tell somebody I was going by their front entrance tonight. that house early morning September second and I saw that woman the blond woman points this picture in the paper having an argument with somebody who was a white pick-up truck there and a van and a minivan and N.. Guy She was having an argument was not this guy. Pointing to CAL Harris. So this was This witness was Kevin tubs I believe. That's it. Yeah so in this case we're dealing with wrongful conviction. I guess at this point. So now we have new witness in the in the case and Who Basically Said said as you just suggested? He saw her arguing with somebody and it wasn't Caldera's judge did. The judge is supposed to do he set aside that conviction almost Essentially almost immediately okay. So that was two thousand. Seven first conviction is overturned cows rearrested shortly thereafter Leads to a second trial. Convicted goes to prison goes to state prison in later gets reversal on an appellate issue. A technical technical legal issue so he's added added prison. I think he spent two and a half years or so in in prison. The I think the So the the guilty the second trial was two thousand nine He was since the twenty five years and of course. The he appeals to the state. Quarter of appeals and that was Overturn a two thousand twelve. Yep So yeah a couple of two and a half years or so and his time in prison as he relates to me each you know. He's a gregarious gregarious. Guy is his car delicious negotiations. He's a pretty good athlete. Play basketball so his time in in prison although not Nice Nice He made made the most of it and his three children. In just as an aside is three little kittens they were little kids at the time came to visit them on a regular basis. His kids you've of stuck through with him. Through this entire thing. He gets into a term. He comes to the New York City Long Island area and finds a new defense attorney Bruce Marquette Bruce's versus a very aggressive very well known defense attorneys handled Multiple High Profile Cases Bruce successfully lobbies for a change change of venue in a move the the next trial to county another rural county in upstate. New York's go Harry County at just outside of Albany the capital of New York and it picks a jury up there in after a lengthy trial. The result is a hung jury. Okay so that's two thousand fifteen and that will be the third trial Al and But it's not the end of the saga at the end of the trout at the end of the service so it's it's a jury the DA's office to make a decision about what to do. I'm going to tell you that in my experience Three times getting hit over the head for one is another. They usually fall attention. Go Mhm they did not the State Association of District Attorneys recommended to leave them the. Da that they not pursued us again but they chose to to again. It was at that point that I got directly involved in the case. I if numbers podcasts. At thirty some odd years so you enter the case. Then you do enter this wrongful conviction case at at the post conviction level after the third trial the fourth trial comes up in two thousand sixteen and so that's the trail at your preparing for. Is that correct correct. Laura okay go ahead and continue so I. I was aware of the case. I spoke to Bruce batted in his first defensive him in SCO Harry County. Most familiar with Scurry County offered some some technical advice for lack of a better word Some demographic research and things about about juries but in the fourth case space he says hey take a look at this whole thing and we took a deep dive into case and it was something that really struck me one of them. was you kind of go back to the beginning then and I mean look at everything from the very beginning. Yep Over the trial transcripts from three previous trials all the evidence all the witness statements. All the investigatory. It's tens of thousands of pages of of material do you. How long does it take to read all that stuff you know? We did pretty quickly because there was a time there was a time. Oh Yeah Yeah we. We had custody trial and it really boiled down to a few things. Cal Harris was the kind of guy like I said you can love them or hate him. I think the hate part falls heavily. We're so than anything else. It had some negative interactions with some relatives of some police personnel. Up in up in that area area So I don't think anybody was unhappy when they when they decided they decided very early on the cow was their guy is a thing called confirmation formation bias confirmation bias. Oh Yeah you look at something and everything else. That just seems to fall in place right. I mean it's very very very very problematic in this case. So tell you what we did really quickly you know. I found some women that that state police never talked to. For whatever reason it turns out Do this real quick is a really long story When I when I read the case I see a couple of things that just jumped out at me? Right away There there were there were couple of the actors in here there were a couple of guys relatively transient though from Texas Nudity area maybe six six eight months before Michelle's disappearance. They came up to work in a steel fabricating factory that a Texas Company opened the opened in in the area earlier that year or something and these guys were out running around they were unattached they frequented bars ars strip clubs prostitutes. You know we're having a good time to of those. People came to my attention as as people that had interest in Michelle. One of them owned a little cabin way up in the woods. Probably fifteen twenty minute ride from from town and during their interviews and what they had anecdotally told people. was that around the time Michelle disappeared. They burned bloody clothes in a burn. Pit Now now. I mean I've been around hunters my entire life I've been in a obscene a lot of different things. I've never seen anyone try to burn. Bloody clothes allegedly as a result of a deer hunt. So so I said sent the Bruce. It's earning anybody ever look up. There and CAL had hired a former New York state. Police investigator real competent guy who did a lot of good work and chase down a lot of leads and he had actually heard you stories about that. The body was under a newly poured floor and a barn there that caverns nothing. They went as far as rip that out in excavate that A The newly poured barn floor down to six or eight feet below grade now. Yeah Futilely frankly never found a body of offended thing. They did a good job hat but I looked at anybody have looked a burn. Pit Up there and the answer I got from people was once in a barn. What are you gonNA find in a bar and I was sitting Twenty five miles east the largest burn pit in the world at that point which was the World Trade Center and we got phenomenal down of forensic evidence from from that epic event. So I said you know we really should take a look at this. I'm unthinking you know these stories. Coalesce people discounted them in the state. Police totally disregarded them so it's January it's cold in upstate. New York in January Frigid ground typically freezes. Frost Line Goes News. Pretty deep to what I did was I hired a found through some research a An anthropologist Forensic Anthropologists Were School Insulin University in Pennsylvania again in touch with them. It done some stuff from enforcement before What the story was he put together? A crew of his graduate students consume. We met them on a cold day at this cabin with the acquiescence of the current owner. They did archaeological dig in excavated. This burn Pinette Inet burn pit. We found items step. Were interesting to me. We found pieces of cloth. Michelle Harris had uniform when she worked in this Bar Restaurant. It was a blue Polo shirt in a gray air. Shoulda Khaki shorts. We recovered blue material. In Khaki material lost material we recovered some key Dorky. A dime from nineteen ninety seven and a blade of a knife life which was about six inches long. There were no other inorganic materials in Nothing else nothing.

"Addiction to email cal Newport wrote the piece which describes this moment and workplace history as one where we all frantically trucker inboxes every few minutes exhausted by the dilution of complex and ambiguous messages while applauding ourselves for eliminating the need to speak face to face yep guilty as charged we'll happily cal Newport is also a computer science professor at Georgetown and he has some thoughts about how we got here and how we might do it better cal Newport welcome thank you for having me so we're gonna get to the evils of email but start with the story that opens your essay we are deep inside CIA headquarters it's the nineteen sixties and nestled inside the walls are something like thirty miles of steel tubing why what was a fourth communication and in particular communication that is asynchronous away for me to send a message to over a hundred fifty different stations in the headquarters where it can arrive in be there waiting for the recipient to read it so they essentially built email but using pneumatic tubes and fibre glass containers electromagnetic switches we're talking about this because as you mentioned this was a prime early example of asynchronous messaging which I gather basically was about convenience I can write you when I feel like it you can reply when you want this was seen as a silver bullet for a really big problem that emerged in the twentieth century which was work spaces that used to just be for five people if I needed something I would just talk to but in the twentieth century we saw the arrival of very large offices and very large organizations and so the problem was how do we coordinate and collaborate when there's eight hundred a thousand two thousand or less in the same building in a synchrony was seen as the magic solution so very systems were tried we're still trying to figure out the perfect system but in the mean time in the late twentieth century email arrives and it's like the killer app of asynchronous communication yeah we assumed this would solve the problem I mean the pneumatic tubes or what have you was interesting but very few organizations could actually afford to build these but email any organization could have everyone could send messages to everyone else when they wanted instantaneously have them be read when the recipient was ready this was seen as the thing that was going to solve the problem of collaboration and big organizations which is why it's spread incredibly rapidly into essentially every corner of knowledge work sound so promising and delightful except as anyone who's ever had an email account news email is great for many things but collaboration and one of them yeah unintended consequences so it turned out that during this same period where people in the world of business thought a synchrony was going to solve all these problems there was mathematicians in my field that were studying a synchrony in computer networks and finding out when you get rid of real time back and forth conversation suddenly becomes much harder to collaborate it's much more subtle it requires much more messages and it just takes longer that experience we've all had of sending two dozen messages back and forth when you could have just picked up your phone or leaned out your cubicle and holler you work right yeah that's right we thought that we could take a five minute conversation replace with one quick email message but the reality is that five minute conversation required fifteen back and forth email messages throughout the day so we soon found ourselves overwhelmed by the massive increase in messages what does that mean for those of us who are sitting here twitching to check our email in practical terms how should we be communicating well what we know is that humans are much better at back and forth in real time so on the phone sing together in the same room on video chat where you can actually go back and forth where I say something and I know that you hear it right away and you can respond right away we can look at our body language we can look at our cues we can look at how our voices changing volume modulation this is an incredibly efficient way for human beings according collaborate so what is the solution we stop checking email so much and pick up our phone more well what I found is that going back to synchrony successfully in the world of business requires structure so if you just say get on the phone more useless email that's probably not going to work but if you have systems in place this is how we collaborate this is we have these meetings at these times here's how we set up this meeting so they don't become long and full of blue VA sent this type of structured synchrony is starting to have a come back in the world of business and people are finding that they're getting by with much less messaging you also write about the old fashioned notion of office hours I'm available at this time I can talk to face to face if you can't come during my office hours too bad to solve your problem or.

"Now it's time to get onto this show again, today show is with author Cal Newport, caliber, actually, a professor of computer science, or a Georgetown University, and p is one of the smartest people I've ever met incredibly insightful, and we're going to walk through three of his books that I just obsessive what we've talked to them before. In fact, here in the podcast few weeks ago when we interviewed Dave for the Burgh episode they came out. I asked you David greenie I asked David green here? What your favorite current business book is? And he said it was so good. They can't ignore you, which is the first book we talk about today with Cal Newport. So we're lucky to have Cal today again, I want you all to understand this is not a real estate focus show. But this the concepts we talk about today could benefit your real estate business. More than almost anything else, we could teach you like when people ask me all the time why like how I seem to get so much done like I get a lot done in life, and I have a pretty busy life. But I don't work all that many hours like these the these three books are what I point people to over and over and over. It's like I do. Stuff from his first book, the stuff from the second book is from the third book. And if you follow these things, you can obtain financial freedom as Cal says, you could buy do it in a year if you were really good at this stuff through anything real estate, or any other entrepreneurial thing, so with that it's time to get to today's show. So let's get to our conversation with Cal Newport. All right. Mr. cow Newport, welcome to the bigger pockets podcast. Man. Good to have you here. It's my pleasure. Yeah, it was okay. So, as I mentioned to you before we said, recording our audience. Probably knows your name quite a bit. 'cause we talk about you, and your books, you know, kind of obsessive amount in not in the creepy ways..

"Or if you're like, look, I don't answer text or whatever the reality is people don't care. They're not thinking that much about you know, they adapt really quickly. And so I'm one of these people my family knows it. He sent me a text message. It's a very low probability that I'm going to see it an answer. Right. Like a look at my phone a few times during the day or something like that. Or they just expect like, okay, I don't expect that it's like just ten years ago. I don't expect Cal is always next to his phone, and they've sort of adopted they don't don't care there's sort of used to it. So people adapt is essentially what I'm saying is if you switch to a lifestyle, which I recommend where you sometimes have your phone, and you sometimes don't. You're not always reachable nothing bad happens, and you gain huge positive such as time alone with your own thoughts, which turns to be turned out to be crucial to flourishing and people aren't thinking about you as much as you think they are. They're not sending their stewing like Jordan. He thinks that he can they don't care. They're also we're training people to they get three people frame like great, Jordan doesn't always have his phone. I got it. I I don't expect won't last minute Texan if I need something, and then they move on. Right. And now you've gained back a lot of solitude and undistracted time. And so these seem like small small hacks or maybe scary hacks, but they work really well Cal Newport digital minimalism. Thank you very much like you. Jason. So you did some of the digital minimalism stuff, and it's different than detox. Right. It's not just like, hey, stop using social media. It's completely different system. Yeah. It's a great system to I have dialed back. I followed Cal steps in have been dialing everything back. I'm doing it for thirty days. And I have found that I am much better off without a lot of the things that were on my phone and even on my ipad. I've dialed it back. It only have certain things that I need to do for work that make my life better. And I love the book. I devoured the book. I've given a couple of copies out to some of my friends who really needed it. And I think almost everybody actually really needs it now. And this is great advice. I've loved cow stuff for years is deep work stuff has been fantastic. And this is just another add onto his like awesome library of just taking back your mind. Yeah. I like that taking back your mind. It really is kind of what he specializes in. So definitely check out digital minimalism. I was talking with Charlemagne the God. While I was in New York, if you don't know who he is super popular FM radio DJ talk show host interviewer, and he was freaking out about digital minimalism. He's like this is going to be a game changer. There's gonna change the world like he was really excited about this. And he he just because this is a guy who gets ten thousand tweets a week, literally probably and has millions of followers on Instagram, and he's like, you know, what I'm just not going to do this. And he changed the way that he uses that stuff. He actually ended up deleting his Twitter because as you can imagine when you're a hip, hop interviewer. And you have a Twitter it's just a cesspool. And it was making him feel awful. But the steps are different for everybody there based on your needs. And so this for him. This for me was just a really big deal digital minimalism will link to it in the show notes.

"Yes. It has to do with the we can just continue talking about the Indiana. Michigan game. Coach Cal Kentucky sucks now Kentucky, they're they're on-again off-again relationship with success is currently off. I saw Cal did refer to them as these kids. I was watching like his radio show that he was doing tonight. And he said something about these kids are working on developing. And it's it's it's never not funny to me to hear him say that shit. But anyway, Kentucky sucks, but there is good news because Charles Matthews is still one of cows guys. Yes. And Charles Mathews does not suck. Michigan is very good Michigan as you said jumped out to a big lead against in us defense. They did kind of play Michigan. Even after that initial surge of what doi-. Yeah. Juwan Morgan and Romeo Langford both had to fouls like before the first media time out and that. Kind of sucked in the Michigan built a big lead. And then I you, you know, played pretty well after that. But. Yeah. If thoughts on the Michigan. It's it's interesting to hear now you guys talk about foul trouble with two thousand. That's why you lose a game. When you think about Dan dockage, and what happened with Michael Jordan? But I'll get I'll get past all that Michigan themselves. Brad jacobs. You know continues. I don't even know what how to describe him. But he's just a force. I mean, I think you only had like ten points in the game. But it felt like he had twenty with with what he was able to do and swaggie pool. That's really the guy. Got a point. We say about him. I I mean just perfect exactly we want him to be at this point in the season. He's on the rise. He's been under the radar because everyone talks about you know, Charles Mathews's and breads GECAS but Jordan poet eighteen in this game hit some big shots. And I was I was thoroughly impressed. And just the fact that Michigan's fifteen in Noah's pretty wild to me, honestly, as I just look at the records of every team. It's like man they've been some good teams and they continue to play well in big moments. We have a couple of debates with Michigan that need to be had first of all I want to touch on this one. I we have a good old fashioned. Who's the best? Player on this team to bake Bruin. I am I am a million billion trillion percent in the Charles Mathews camp because I'm not an idiot because I played basketball. I played big ten basketball. I've been to a final four I have a brain. I watched these games. Charles Matthews is obviously their best player. But then other people are now saying like Xavier sit like the Simpson was getting a ton of love from far Kellogg who loved Clark, great guy. Very good guy. I know I know Clark personally tape Frazier. So Clark Clark is that they were talking about the Xavier Simpson. Running hook shot that he shoots off the glass, which is like undeniably, a fun thing to watch like when he hits that shit. It's like, okay. This is fun. I like this kid nothing against save your Simpson. But Xavier Simpson is currently averaging seven points a game. He he he shoots like twenty six percent from the three point line. And like fifty percent from the free throw line. He does not he leads the team in assistant turnovers. That's a big deal. Continue. What else does he do? Yes. One rebounding. That's what I'm saying. Yeah. But but then he, but the thing is is that he's appreciative senior. Right. Like, he's. Yes. A senior he has guard. Yeah. In our mind is regardless of senior. Yeah. He's the senior point guard. Michigan is good defensively. He's good defensively. So he's like the spearhead of the defense. He gets labeled as the best defender..
"cal" Discussed on Hurry Slowly
"Wary about plugging into the power grid because they wary about being too it might hurt the community to be to a mesh to the outside world, or they really don't like cars, for example, because people can drive far away and don't have to spend so much time the community. So they're very intentional. There's obviously a lot of issues with this community as well. And I wanted I wanted wish this particular model, especially the fact that these intentional decisions are made by a small group of people all of whom tend to be men and everyone has to abide by. The decisions that's not good. But what you notice as an interesting principle is that a lot of Amish people are feel incredibly satisfied incredibly happy because the intention -ality of I'm living in a certain way that I really value way outweighs the the convenience isn't benefits. Lost of the things. They turned down not being electrical grid not having not having cell phones. So there's there's a principal to generalize here, which is being very intentional about how you live your life trying to support things you really value in knock it too cluttered up with the other things that intention can give you way, more satisfaction than what you lose by various minor conveniences of technologies that you sidestep. This is this underlies not just digital minimalism. But almost any minimalism movement is under girded by this idea that being intentional about your life is more important than maximizing. Conveniences. I think Cal is really onto something with this idea of intention -ality versus convenience about a year ago, I removed the Twitter app from my phone. I still have a Twitter account, but I can only access it from my desktop, and even now twelve months later, I still have moments where I have a reflex to post something I'm thinking about while I'm out walking around in the world. And the interesting thing is I wouldn't even classify myself as someone who was particularly addicted to Twitter in the first place. But that's how deep these things run and it occurs to me that reflects that impulse to share is rather like volunteering to be the sports caster for your own life. It's like you're locking yourself in a little booth high above the crowd and high above the action. So that you can comment on it. But my choosing to constantly comment on the action. You affectively remove yourself from the Plainfield remove yourself from the game of life. You no longer feel the flow of really sinking into a good conversation without the distractions or the soothing solitude of sitting with your own thoughts and letting them marinade into something richer. You cannot both comment on the action and be a part of the action at the same time. It's impossible. But even though I'm aware of all of this. I have no doubt that that reflexive twitch will come again. Because convenience is easy and being intentional is not. But it's a heck of a lot more rewarding in the long run. And speaking of sports now, it's time for your final moment of zen. What do you do when you need to slow down? If it's a busy day busy week baseball on the radio that is no no better invention for sort of shifting your mind into another mode than to sit outside on your porch on one of these sort of humid, mid Atlantic summer nights. And I have an old battery powered radio with an analog dial, which I love, and you know, Charlie slows Dave Jaguar do the call the nationals game, and you sit there, and you just gotta listen to it in your mind wanders because a lot of downtime. Mass like medicine. You know, I mean, it's it's a game that's paste. Well for slowing down a mine in our current age. Thanks to Matsue sich for producing this episode.
