Virgil and the Funeral for a Bug
"Was a poet who lived in the first century. Bc e during the the augusta periods of early imperial room and You might know him best from his most famous work the epic poem the aeneid which is about sort of the founding lineage of rome and the adventures of the trojan hero aeneas who after the trojan war travels from troy and eventually becomes the ancestor of the roman people Virgil is often considered one of the greatest latin poets and he was wildly popular during his own lifetime You know he. He received commendations from from kings and the wealthy. And and you know everybody thought like this. This guy is just got the juice. And i had virgil on my mind A lot last year. Because rachel and i were re-reading dante's divine comedy. And if you'll recall of course virgil is the pilgrims guide through hell and purgatory and the divine comedy so the spirit of virgil. He's been living out the centuries in limbo because Though he was a very virtuous man he's one of the virtuous pagans. He was never baptized as a christian. So he can't go to heaven he's got a hang out in this sort of antechamber of hell where everybody sits around sighing. Because interesting has ever happening to them. I have to admit that. I tend to when anybody mentions virgil. That's the first place. My mind goes is dante's inferno which is probably not fair. It's like if you were to mention the name of socrates and there was someone were to go. Yeah yeah he's in bill and ted's excellent adventure that's exactly eighty nine. That's exactly where i knew you were going with the villain ted. Yeah yeah the that is pretty good because though it slightly different because it's not a it's not at all parodied in the divine comedy. In fact i would say it's exactly the opposite in the divine comedy. He is he is revered. Yeah yes he. He's reimagined as this like superhuman wizard. For for dante he Virgil is the embodiment of wisdom and reason so for the intended readers of the divine comedy. We're supposed to understand that. Virgil is like a ten out of ten platinum level. Cool be st is just like this ultimate wizard of knowledge and about half of the state you remember. How like basically every other time. Dante talks in the first two books of the divine comedy. It's just to say like virgil you are so right. I would never doubt your wisdom. Tell me more you know and it kind of stinks then. Because i remember when we got to the end of the purgatory and virgil does not get to move on to heaven with dante. He has to stay behind and be beatrice takes him on from there. We're really mad. That virgil didn't get to go to heaven. Yeah yeah no. I mean so much so much time is devoted to him. It also much stripped away at that point. You know. it's like if it's hard to follow dante in into paradise just because you know that there aren't going to be any demons playing trumpets with their bombs or anything there's gonna be Monsters so much and virgils not gonna be there. So it's it's part. Three in a series is always tough. Yeah i agree. Yeah the the trilogy is a hard sell to to complete with dignity. And but i think for modern readers that sense of injustice about virgil that is interpreted by the characters in the inferno as you know perfect divine justice. It's the one person version of the dynamic that plays out throughout the whole thing whereas they're going through hell it just seems like wow. This is really unfair. Yeah but anyway long. Before virgil was guiding dante up the mountain of purgatory in his post mortem shade form people were telling lots of legends about his life and one of those legends. Is that once at his home. In rome virgil built a tomb and held an extravagant funeral for a dead fly. Like a fly as in the insect with six legs and wings This story is very probably untrue. And we'll get to why. That is in a bit. But i i wanted to explore some of the details and for this. I was reading an article by george pendle in cabinet magazine. In two thousand seven called virgils fly and he describes the legend in the following way quote held in the grounds of virgils home on rome's esquel line hill. The funeral attracted the great and good of the city. Dirges were sung and tributes read virgils. Patron my sinus delivered. A lengthy and moving eulogy to the departed insect and virgil was himself said to have uttered a few of his exquisite versus over the tiny carcass tomb had been erected and the lifeless body of the fly was placed within it to the whales and moen's of the professional mourners so lavish where the commemorations that the cost was estimated at over eight. Hundred thousand sister. She's so that's the gist. According to the story virgil and his close friends spend huge amounts of money and effort to celebrate the life in memory of an insect concluding with the insects burial in a marble tomb. Why on earth would this be. Well the legend itself also contains an answer to this so to read from pendle again quote but the reason for the funeral was not due to extravagance interest or even emotion. Having defeated julius. Caesar's assassins at the battle of philip pie. The second triumvirate was at that very moment. Engaged in confiscating the states of the rich and dividing them among the war veterans returning from the battlefield only one exception was given if the estate held a burial plot. It was not to be touched by burying his housefly. Virgil saved his house.

Justice Department closes investigation into Senator Burr
"Well they're warning to senators who intend to trade. On inside information. You will probably not face consequences. North carolina senator richard. Burr found out. Yesterday he won't be charged with insider trading by the department of justice for selling off stocks in february just weeks before the market crashed. Burr was the subject of a month long investigation into a sale of between six hundred thirty thousand and one point seven million dollars in stocks after he receives senators only briefings that made the severity of the cova threat. Clear for other senators were also implicated including kelly laughlin and david purdue but they were absolved wrongdoing by august of last year.

Fresh "Caesar" from No Such Thing As A Fish
"Which as you know that. There's an incredible scene where playing simple whatever. Yeah it's a dwayne johnson. Movie basically yeah. I would have loved them. Dickens would have thought of transformers full there was like a response to it. Wasn't the so in the eighteen fifties and sixties as a guy called tom robertson who invented thing called cup and saucer realism. And what that was. It was the exact opposite of these train. Crashes and fires and drownings and stuff like that and this was reported has been really really unusual if there were few people talking in a kitchen say robertson onstage onstage as many chairs as would realistically be found in a kitchen or dining room as opposed to everyone else he would say well there were two people talking so we only need to chaz. So we'll just put that so. He had everything that was really realistic. And there was one where someone was making putting on stage and this was absolutely the talk of the town because it was so unusual that someone would really be actually making a putting while they were doing the talking and instead of some kind of projecting really shouting these kind of what was happening in the play. They would just talk. A normal person. Wasn't it was just like a realistic thing and start off with. No one would put these plays on. Because they were like will was the fucking car-crash was how that eventually those one or two theaters and then that's kind of where we are today. A little bit sort of thing. I i think the thing is still doesn't happen Revolutionary see spach as in place on. That's bullshit. I was reading on sort of general theater stage props of the back of this fact and so just a couple of things that i found. There was a story of orson welles when he used to be performing in. Julius caesar he played the role of bruce and he preferred a real knife because plastic knife didn't really give the proper shine in the theater lights. So when you have a real blade it really bounces it off and makes it look real anyway. They had to take caesar to the hospital because he was stabbed. Yeah yeah the. Cd was taken to the hospital. Where to recover for quite a long time. And i would say bring bring the scene to a close a little bit early. I think everyone's watching going. How julius caesar's good in this matter how he about forty times the Because lots of different people presumably also bells was the only while natural by everyone else. The plastic thing also wells was so devoted to his crafty handed out forty nine created his worst enemy to place speaking of that there was a production of dad. Zombie in twenty ten in south wales local production and they realized in a rehearsal that they were accidentally using live. grenades found. Don't panic and it was corporal jones who the bank they realized as he was looking at it. Oh that's funny. This does look good. Doesn't it in fact there's a pin still in it and they they. They found them in a car in the garage of cast members father-in-law and just driven them to the rattling around the bumps. Come and blow them up. Oh i'm you know what they do for drugs. And popes if because sometimes they have to take lots of drugs. Kids like a flower all icy sugar. Something it's pretty close. So brought masters basically the ones they have to test all the drugs themselves to make sure that you can take it as an actor a not immediately start choking or whatever so fake cocaine in the wolf of wall street that i think was vitamin b powder and that was fine. us moss instead of marijuana. But i'm the i'm going to his steeler accidentally marijuana what is bullshit. I felt calmer. And i wanted to feel tense mushrooms. It just mushrooms mushrooms but non magic mushrooms. It does think sensational place. So was rules about what you could show on the theater. And then they go slightly loosen be still had to pass things through law chamberlain's office and so in the nineteenth century in order to get things through the senses. You wouldn't swear words. In for instance you would have other things that people would say And so you have. Loads of awesome. Insults like people would call each other. I- rascal nighthawk or a herring gutted billon and so that also sometimes the like a villain instead of going. Fuck you you pasta sauce. Stop my amazing plan. They wouldn't be able to do any stunning. Well i would do if i could go back into the nineteenth century because instead of using the amazing dilute you would just out. Your psychological state was the american plane which was for the british stage. The villain had his plans filed. He just shouted out confusion. I think we have a new catch phrase okay. It is time for fact number three and that is james. Okay my fact this week. Is that when it wants to sleep. A walrus will sometimes hook. Its tusks onto a small iceberg.

Why Does the Year Start on January 1?
"Every year. The earth orbits around the sun and we celebrate each revolution on new year's day. But what's so special about this particular spot in our orbit. Why do we use january first as the start of our year as opposed to some other day as we go back in history. Most human civilizations did not use a solar calendar they used. Lunar calendar's in fact if you look at the traditional calendars for countries such as china vietnam or for religion such as judaism and islam. They have lunar calendars and their new year's day changes it state every year. Our current calendar can be traced back to ancient rome. The very early romans way back at the founding of the city used to have ten months and that ten months system is still reflected in many of the names of our months today. Their first month was marcus named after the god mars which we call march after march came the months of april ass- maya's and junius the months after this. We're just named after their number until he has sex tellus september october november and december so yeah december are twelve months really means the ten months in latin likewise with november october and september however. Ten months didn't really fit nicely into a year. They had two full months worth of leftover dates. That didn't really fit into any month to rectify this around the year. Seven hundred pc. The roman king numa added two more months to the counter. I annual areas named after the roman god janus and february's which was now the last and shortest month of the year for romans. The beginning of each month was called the callan's so the start of the year was the callans of march or mark. I then at some point and no one is quite sure. When the year began being counted on the calendar of i warious january went from being the eleventh month to being the first month. This might have had something to do with the start of terms for consoles. Romans named their years after the two consuls and power instead of numbering them so for example the year fifty nine bc. Julius caesar wisconsin with kelp. Biblis it was known as the year of caesar bibi however was weak so there was a running joke that it was the year of julius. Caesar it might also had something to do with the fact that january i was the callans closest to the winter solstice. Caesar is actually really important to this story. While the names of the months were very similar to the months we have today. The keller itself was still a mess. Caesar instituted changes to fix this problem. Anti adopted the suggestions of a greek astronomer named side of alexandria suggested going to a tropical year more on that in a bit and created the three hundred sixty five day year with a leap year every fourth year. So that's pretty much. The story right. The roman set january is the first day of the year julius. Caesar sets the julian calender. And we get to where we are today. Nope because in the middle ages the system fell apart completely at the five sixty seven council of tours and there were a whole bunch of different councils of tours so you have to specify. The church declared that january. I was not to be celebrated as the new year as it was a pagan tradition. What replace january first. Well nothing there were. A whole bunch of different days celebrated oliver europe for centuries. Some places used christmas. Which was the winter solstice on. The julian calendar some use the floating date of easter someone back to the old roman march first. And some if you remember back to the episode on why. Christmas is on december twenty fifth us. The important date of march twenty-fifth start of the new year eventually. For a whole host of reasons pope gregory the thirteenth the problems with the julian calender and use the opportunity to standardize the new year back to being january first for good measure. They also made january first holiday which it still is. Today originally january. I was the feast of the circumcision of jesus. But now it's just called the solemnity of mary. Of course not. Everyone was on board with the new calendar. Catholic countries were quick to adopt it but protestant and orthodox countries were not in particular. One country was very late to adopt january first as the beginning of the new year. That country was england. England celebrated their new year on march twenty fifth. In fact their colonies in the americas. Did this as well up until seventeen. Fifty two in seventeen. Fifty england passed what was known as the calendar new style. Act also known as chesterfield's act which is when they adopted the gregorian calendar. The very first thing mentioned in the act was the problem with using march twenty fifth as the new year when everyone else in europe used january first including scotland so when england finally adopted january first as the start of the new year. So did the american colonies for the first time today. Most countries now use the gregorian calendar even if it's only for business purposes to stay instinct with the rest of the world new year celebration such as ted in vietnam chinese new year or rosh hashanah are still traditional festivities held on different days all over the world. The fact remains that there's nothing astronomically significant about january first even though it celebrating an astronomical event aka revolution around the sun so if we were starting new calendar from scratch. What would we pick before. I mentioned that sausage unease of alexandria suggested we celebrate a tropical year and pick that word carefully as opposed to a solar year because there are two types of solar years and they're very similar a tropical year is the time from one season to the next based on win the solstices occur. The current years based on the gregorian calendar are tropical years. However there's also a thing known as ideal year which is when we measure the position of earth based on the location of stars the difference between a ideal year and a tropical year is very small. He said you real year is only twenty minutes longer. This can add up. However the difference between the julian calendar and the gregorian calendar is only eleven minutes per year and that caused a lot of problems over the centuries this has to do with the procession of the orbit that is constantly changing their to logical places to define a new year based on astronomic principles. The i would be one of the solstices. This is something that humans have pictured for thousands of years and have recognized its importance. The winter solstice also is in too far away from january. First the solstice really has more to do with the tilt of the earth however and not the orbit of earth there is something significant about the orbited the earth. That is a point. We could use and oddly enough. It's really close to january. First even though the ancients had no clue the orbit of the earth around the sun is close to circular but it isn't perfectly circular it's a slight ellipse hence there is a point where the earth is closest to the sun. And it's called the para helium perihelion in the year. Twenty twenty one takes place on january second the date of para helium drifts. Over time in the year twelve forty-six para helium actually took place on the same date as the salsas in the year. Six thousand four hundred and thirty it will take place. On the spring equinox so january first is the start of our year which marks astronomical event even though the data itself has no astronomical significance set by the romans abandoned by the church only to be later adopted once again by the church so as the romans did celebrate the callans of january which honors janice the roman god with two faces one which looks into the past at the old year and one which looks into the future at the new

Glenn Close, 'Hillbilly Elegy'
"Hi everybody. I'm peter travers. This is popcorn What's happening at the movies and my guest today. is glenn. close one of the best actors on this planet. You heard it from me and you heard from everybody else. That caesar in anything you people need to get now busy on netflix. And watch glenn. In hillbilly jay where her talent is shining on its highest being. So congratulations to you. God thank you peter. Thank you very much. And i'm looking at you and when i see you and you'll be billy algae i say who the hell is that. What about this transformation that you make to play this character. Well you know. It started. When i when i knew i was going to do memo is started with. I can't be distracted by my own face. I can't you know if i think the audience sees my face. I'll be very distracted by that though. I called matthew mongol reading. Oh genius makeup artist. Special effects makeup in mossy oak own views is done my wigs for practically my entire career and they had done also janet mcteer ni- and albert and matthew came up from texas where he's kind of semi retired when i still had a house out you know in westchester and we sat in my kitchen and he experimented with with shapes because it was really amazing. How just a very slight alteration of its shape of your nose for example can take your own face away so It was that and also mammal in life had big ears so he added you know size of my ears in my ear lobes. In the night. I curl my hair and made it all frizzy and ron came over because he just lives over the border in connecticut and he was kind of he was convinced because it i of course you know you worry about the time taken in the chair in the morning with any kind of percents but this was actually you know just slight difference of the nose and ears in it. I i was reading an hour every day But that was the beginning. And i we were given a portrait of mammoth fabulous portrait for slightly looking up with the big glasses and her hair and that was kind of what we went on. And then eventually saw videos from the family of her inaction laughing surrounded by kids pulling a wagon and then i the thing that was most valuable for me was to have one on one with bev with lindsay with a cousin with jd. And just saying okay. How did she sit. What did she wear. How did she hold her cigarette What was her voice like what. What was your energy like when she came into a room. What was her house like. So just very specific things not to pretend i was her but to somehow find the essence of this woman. Who is just. I mean loved feared feared and loved. When you get a property like this. I mean let's start by that. How did it come to you. He'll billy allergy. Who showed it to you. I said well. To tell you the truth. I read the book you know. Not long after came out because i wanted to educate myself kennedy. Was it her. She made the wonderful wonderful documentary about the hill. People that i remember vividly. But that was more like the shacks in the moonshine. And that's kind of the cliche and cliches are uninteresting. And i think cliche can lead to people being stigmatized and i think this group of people have been stigmatized. And then i heard that ron was had gotten the rights was developing the script and i wrote him a note and i said when you're thinking of memo please think of me thinking never in a million years would you. Because it's not like casting that you would necessarily leaked to. But then he got exciting for. You is the best thing about exciting new territory. And that's the essence of what we do right. I mean we were. We explore the human condition. And you don't want to go over territories spiritual emotional psychological that you've done before and so this was a great great journey for me to to learn about mammo to meet her family. I really believe i. It's just a fact that all great drama is based in family and you tell a very specific story about family and it has repercussions for everyone matter who they are and and that to me is the value of making it authentic and honest because then people can say they they almost subliminally will link it to their own lives. I heard that you met her son. Oh yes yes. He came settled. So what did he say when he's looking at you playing her and in a way reproducing this woman who's gone now he couldn't believe it. I mean the thing when the family and they came later when we were like a bunch of them came on on the day that i shooting the scene with little jd when he's I've told that he has to give his p to his mother and they came onset set. We're we're on a location. And some of them started crying. They somehow whatever we found was the mammal that they remembered and her son came came in another scene and he had to leave because he got so emotional. So that was really gratifying. I think we wanted to do justice. And we wanted to in way carry on the legacy of mammal. I women all over the world who are mammals you know. Always a yankee game sat next to a grandmother and grandfather. Taking care of their ten year old grandson. And i think he'd oh my god no retirement for them. I said their daughter was unable to take care of them so they were raising their grandson and it happens a lot in this country that know. We see every time we turn around to do that. And i say from the specific comes the universal to do that. But i think it's going to have an effect watching this movie now because all of us many of us even if we're lucky enough to live in some kind of bubble where we have. Some family members with us isn't going to be a thanksgiving where we can all get together in large kind of group. it's just impossible with this pandemic. How are you living with. Pandemic there in montana. We'll see interesting. Because i've not achieved as much creatively as i wanted. I wanted to really really right. Haven't and i'm not sure why not be. I think it's brought a kind of sometimes. I feel like. I'm spinning my tires. You know in in the mud and not getting a traction. And but i make sure my sink is clean all the time. My kitchen isn't border. You know i make i will. Do i think that every day going. After the i kind of the little things to keep my life in order that have been important but he things are building. I think i would like to think that a great great era of creativity for for all of us who are in the are artists will come out of this. Whether is you know something's just stating whether you're aware of it or not. But it's there it's going to happen
Marten DB with Jeremy Miller
"Talk a bit about mother nam. now i through my My professional career. I've only ever interacted with a sequel based database. So i know the martin You describe it. But i know the mountain is a document based database although i know like the theory of without entails and how it works absolutely no experience of of that in real life so i apologize in advance in case i ask any kind of silly questions that you think. You should know this jimmy. 'cause i really don't now no no. That's okay help. In a relational database that all of us at some point in time most of those probably still using today most also probably using ten years because it's so entrenched on data's is organized in terms of tables of columns and rows it is a two-dimensional piece of data and the world is much more complicated than that. So of course you know. An order has ordered details. person has dependence. Has these things these things so then you start pick up relationships between tables but still working really hard to represent your world as tables columns rose so on and so forth. that's great it's awesome reporting fantastic for some of the early work. I did in my career What supply chain work ordering parts like that but in the real world when you're talking about now the behavior my code the world higher. I mean heavy user. But i have type. Caesar is parts but have different parts or God forbid if you get into financial software would you represent trades in finance world. Each kind of trade has totally different set of set of data. But yet you still want to try to fit that to relational databases and things get starting really nasty as problem domains in places where maybe you have a lot. Polymorphism maybe have. Very deep hierarchies One of the projects kelvin. The works on right now. Our clients problem domain as a everything relates to a top level entity comma person but that person has up to two or three dozen other kinds of related entities and breaking that. Down into mapping that to relational database. You run into the old impedance mismatch of the way that data once the shaped in your code where it's all about behavior becomes very different than how relational database forces you to structure so here. I'm i'm trying to prove out that relational database is not not the end. All be all for some some problem domains so in document database will. We're trying to do is. We're trying to persist that that person basically just laid it and bypass a lot of this mapping so taking the example of martin and martin sits on top. Now we can talk about why martin on top of the post grad database. But what what martin's doing is taking your object instead of mapping individual columns tables whatnot. It's jason serializing your your document and stuffing a database. Somewhere to all your mapping problems. Go away as long as jason reliable. You're good to go fantastic. I like that idea because like you said there are just some things that cannot be maintained in. That sort of relational status right. There are only so many foreign case and join tables and also craziness like that until you stop bullying. At least in my instance. Bowling was left of your hair out. Trying to figure out i do. I get this data and that data and then you look at Entity framework and you end up pulling he'd tire object graph On his one piece of day there august a bit much to to to organize. I guess keeping your head as well if you've got fifteen different tables in the role into related you have to be able to keep all of that in your head on a piece of paper and explain it to someone else right yes. So you're saying that martin. Debbie i can just give it if my like you said if your objectives jason realizable i just he do i. J sunset realize it on just to mountain. Handles you tell. Marty you tell martin. I want to store the subject. And there's there's a few extra requirements martin has to figure out what the identity is of your object easily just as long as you have an. Id proper your field and you can override this explosive stuff. you absolutely have to be special indifferent. Different people do but as martin can figure out what the identity is and it can be Jas on that's that's enough Martin will take care of everything else for it. Moreover martin postcards has some special up capability where it's very efficient to observe. It's so we don't even make you care. We don't even make you tell martin unless you really want to whether it's an insert or an update. Just i want to persist. This and martin will get the. Id for you. It will sign it if it has just like. You're used to the core and it'll persist it to the right table if you working in development time with a developing mode on Martin build the necessary underlying tables by itself for on the so. You can focus on getting stuff. Done thinking about your problem domain. Evolve your your your model objects as you need to. And don't even think about database migrations or structure or anything like that. Just go on what you're really trying to do.
What Will the World Look Like When Crytpo Is Fully Adopted?
"What do you think the world will look like. Once crypto has been adopted. There's there's two sort of visions. I think i don't maybe we can just be honest ourselves. Sometimes i worry about the vision. We have for currency so aware. I started and i have a lot of respect for jeremy in the team at circle. Because back when i was in grad slow boston actually used circle to violate quinlan. So kudos huge you. Jeremy you saved me from my days for buying the clan on craigslist in using fan. So i could do how well yeah. So you obsolete neat stack my my sats. The early days of the coin The i think they're sort of two visions and they're two very different visions the vision. I've always had for bitcoin that i think. Really compelling one is the separation for the first time of money and state. Money has been object of the state since julius caesar stamped his face on a gold coin and i think really the experiment. We're attempting here like the world is no longer defined by physical orders. We live in a very digital world. Anyone could be anyone on. The internet has many different identities many different communities where part of sometimes as our default reality south. Sometimes where donnas you know there are a lot of eggs anonymous individuals citing. We live in this really interesting world that is truly becoming borderless antony. Bitcoin really represents the evolution of money transfer value in that world. But in the same time. I think governments are looking at bitcoin Right now we're living in a world where governments are trying to ban math. They're literally encryption. We done this time and time again. For the last twenty five years since incriptions existed but the advent of central bank digital currencies. In certainly what. We've seen in the asia pacific region in particular the advent of dc p. and Sort of national quote unquote digital currencies. You do have a lot of concerns around the ability for people to have financial privacy. Privacy transactions privacy communications so we have these two very different paths down which we're heading. I don't know if they're gonna coexist. Don't know if it's going to be an ethic collision and i know jeremy also you know than working a lot on uscc which which arguably has replay here. But i think the future of joe currencies in our society is sort of at this. Very interesting impasse. I want bitcoin to exist. Ideally people have the right to privacy that people have the right to sue committee in their transactions. But i think governments certainly do not like that and are advocating now for the antithesis of that which is central bank digital currencies and monetary systems that. Give them complete control the ability to exert financial censorship at every level of society. Driving up tacit. Tiv know early. There's so much there. I i guess i it just as a technologist The to the question of you know. When will this be mainstream or however you wanna call that my view is that you know. Things are mainstream in terms of technology when they disappear when they're invisible people and and when when essentially like people just take take them for granted right and said depending on your age and depending on where you are like. You might take for granted social media. But obviously that wasn't something that existed Wherever x. number of years ago you might take for granted that you have this amazing you know Supercomputer that just like that is reality. That is what the world was but obviously that had changed so at. What point is the use of crypto so ubiquitous and so embedded in so many things that we just take it for granted so were were. We have credited ago on that. But i think we're making really really strong progress. I think when. I also think about that question. I really think about Crypto and blockchain Is is. It's a pretty broad surface area right. You can be narrowly focused and sort of say there's non-sovereign stores value that use of blockchain infrastructure. You know bitcoin cash you know cetera et cetera which i completely agree with melting right. There's this this is this new form of borderless internet money and it will continue to grow and scale. And i'm i'm quite quite optimistic about that. But then there's the the fundamentals of the broader technology right so you know public chain infrastructure as effectively a new operating system layer on the internet. A new set of systems for storing data conducting transactions and executing code. That's what operates systems can help. Do these new operating system layers are very very general purpose in many respects there well suited to what i call fiduciary trust applications but can also be you know i. I was in a hackathon panel with melting the other day and we are looking at someone who built a decentralized messaging application on top of salona. The point being anti-centralized fantasy football fans in so digital games. You know messaging applications all these things on decentralized infrastructure web three cetera. Like that part of this is also a very very important part of this and so and you know something like stable coins like regulated stable coins like a us dc or potentially libra like these. These are also like apps that run on this new operating systems and could be quite popular. And so i think in terms of the question of when does that become mainstream. I think we're really close there. I think in the next twelve to twenty four months many of the most popular digital wallet products in the world that are used that we think of unused like as peer payments. And things like that. They're gonna turn on these protocols they're gonna turn these on and you're going to have you know all of a sudden hundreds of millions of people that can make interoperable payments at each other and that will kind of be in the background. That will be invisible. You'll you'll just you won't be trapped in making payments to people who then mo you'll be able to make payments between van mo and square cash and pay pal and swish in sweden and vips in norway. And you know go around the world to all these different apps. They're all going to speak. These common protocols in i think that's a a mainstream phase in digital currency. That's that's coming. I think ultimately that same number of people who might feel okay like i'm using euros or dollars or whatnot feeling comfortable using bitcoin that will grow to and eventually i would expect billions of people will will wanna use bitcoin to

Rafa remains, bubble struggle and whats that hair?
"Thank you so much for those lovely words. How about this every time we told with. Somebody's favorite tennis. Podcast catherine who to thaw is almost as if we've just encouraged this and frankly that's exactly someone from newfoundland n-i-l-l-a-s only finland is i'm going to try and retrain myself to announce it that's where the good dogs come from. Is it for what good about them. They are big and cuddly and fluffy and Do you remember caesar. May he rest in. Peace martino trace lovely doke He was found. Oh well yes. Now that was a splendid dog portray if the dog world say nancy. Congratulations for being from there. yes so nancy back kicked out of thank you so much into all the others that have introduced show this week. We really appreciate it and yeah. That's why we able to do this every single day of the finals. And we've got a few more to go. Today was a funny all day. We kind of previewed. It didn't we last night as much as the afternoon. Look like a much meaning to it. There was just not meaning. Those they were dead rubbers after all posted doubles and the singles and then the evening section. We always knew is going to be a knife edge type scenario you win. You guys drew you lose. You got home like a normal tournament. Let's start there showy because rough on the dow has beaten stefan pass in three sets. It wasn't like last year's when i didn't feel i thought it was. I mean i thought the dow played really. Well i've role. But i mean obviously there's no crime but last year they played a three center in and it was just epic. Wasn't it every every point felt like a a saga this. This didn't feel that that to me what to you. Know i felt like steph sits pass could have been prepared to die out there tonight and it still wouldn't have been enough He he cannot get close to the dull serve. I know there's the anomaly of the fact that he is beaten in one song clay Madrid in one thousand nine hundred. But let's just take that out of the equation and it's possible it's possible that sits has a bit of an adult problem And one that he's not getting any closer to solving think it's more than possible. I think he has a nidal problem. And i think he's a pretty big one. It's okay to have nato problem. Nidal is really really good. You know most of the world has had an adult problem for fifteen years. But he's not getting closer. It would sing and sits up past. Thinks he's got into dow problem doesn't am and he he's i it is he having seen his press conference. We'll talk about that in a minute. I think he will be going an obsessing for the next six weeks. Ah bat how to solve his dow problem matt's you you watched it what what jumped out at you from their match or yeah if i if you've got an adult problem. You've got a bit of a men's tennis problem haven't really because nadal is always going to be. There is a constant if you can't overcome the dull you're going to struggle to win the biggest tournaments i would. I would suggest certainly at the moment for the next year or two wall dolls exactly around anyway So yes short turn. That is going to be interesting to see whether sit to pass can overcome it. I think actually on one of those ones on clay. I think he's got so much more time to return the serve and he can step back and take some swings. Maybe that actually does help him against the door. But i completely agree with what you said. Catherine he just didn't didn't get near serve really for the whole match other than a fifteen minute spell which was weird and bizarre and suddenly he broke nidal twice twice in a row three times in a row. Maybe it was a very strange portion of the match. But i guess my main takeaway was kind of comparing to team the dull because that was the match we saw most recently and it felt like team has sustained threat against nadal whereas sits pass to me felt like he was relying on little moments and flashes of when his game was on and hoping that that would be enough to get him through. I didn't i didn't see a complete game plan really from him. And i think feeds into this wider thing of him being a bit confused about how to play a dollar and therefore it just always felt to me like the dole would win that match and in the end he won that third-set pretty pretty comfortably after after a shaky start
Russia moves to protect Putin from prosecution
"We start in russia. Where the duma has backed a bill which grants the country's rulers and their families immunity from criminal prosecution after they leave office and it has set tongues wagging about president putin's political future putin's allowed to stand for two more terms in office when his current stretch ends in twenty twenty four. But is there any need for him to do so if he can retire sooner without fear of prosecution or we're joined for more on this by the russia analyst and regular monocle twenty four contributor. Stephen deal welcome back to the briefing. Stephen always good to hear from you. Tell us it's funny if we if we look back. I don't know a quarter of a century almost now to the sort of an days a of yeltsin now was lots of talk about potential prosecutions and of course putin Gave him immunity as soon as he took over. Is that something Will be very much john on. Putin's mind as well right now. I'm sure his the yeltsin when he stepped down on the thirty first seven nine hundred ninety nine the one thing he'd been looking for in that second term since he's been president since the middle of ninety was someone who would guarantee him immunity from not only him in fact his his blood family and also his wider political family immunity from prosecution for the rest of their lives and the very first decree of then acting president vladimir putin on the last day of ninety thousand nine when he took over as acting president was to grant yeltsin and his coterie fact that immunity and on one thing. We're surprised that this hasn't been done before. But if you think back much closer to to where we are now this year of course we were talking about putin being being able to be president for the rest of his life because of course they changed the constitution earlier this year in russia and it means that the is white cane he can stand again for president in two thousand and twenty four and then if he wants to he can stand again in twenty thirty. They've overturned the previous idea. That president couldn't have more than two consecutive terms. But what this does. I think this is even more significant than and giving him that. Johnston president for life. It means that truly fall ill or something then. This means that he can. He can step down and not be prosecuted at the moment. The russian president compu- prosecuted while he's in office but until this is passed he can be prosecuted if he if he were down. Well it's really interesting statement. I guess it's sort of fun to speculate in a way. What appeals to vladimir putin most is it to just stay in office To sort of become superannuated president be there for decades as it will turn out or is he more concerned about protecting as you said his nearest and dearest and in the immediate coterie from from what we understand and we know about him. What do you think is most appealing to him. In the here and now is the consolidation. Is that endurance that longevity or do you think he'll be drawn to just melting away into the shadows. The shadows putin is someone who doesn't really have friends. He doesn't really trust anyone. That's his whole background as a street ladd in petersburg when he was growing up and even more so when he was kgb officer and so what he feels is that he he can never be sure he always reminded of sort of you know to broussais. And julius caesar and and that that to me is where putin stands that. He's always afraid that someone were to step down. Someone might change things and then drawing prosecute him and there's a number of things that they might want to prosecute for most not be now if we thinking well it's got to be after he's president. What does the state of the russian economy at rome. It's pretty awful. There are some very few at the top who are just unbelievably wealthy. Russia has nine thousand nine billionaires in the country at a time when thirty eight percents of the country at least according to official fingers are living below the poverty line. Russia is still very much dependent on oil and gas. And it's very interesting today. We have the news. That britain is saying no more petrol cars with diesel cars from twenty thirty. You know the world is going away from those fossil fuels and russia's not really doing anything about it and rushing. Business is is is not in a good position and so you know you could say one of his worst legs could be the state of the economy if you want to choose to step down but if this is passed in the duma has has given it its nods so far it has to go to the federation council. The house and then ironically putin himself would have to sign it off which. I have no doubt he would do. I mean i just wonder what do Russian pro democracy activists Putin's opponents have to say about the sorts of moves. Stephen because presumably there would be appetite in certain limited quarters to say look. We can't have a situation where people are protected in perpetuity from their alleged misdeeds. Particularly if it's a question of. I don't know following the money this sort of thing. Do you think that there will be a a counter. Lobby is ernie president to being able to sell it. We can review these These rulings down down the track or is that just a nonstarter. Right now is a non-starter. The doom is heavily stacked with putin supporters. Then indeed the federation council houses to. There's being talk over the is of of election. Rigging putin generally has a lot of popular support out in the country not so much in moscow some of the other big cities but those who are in power now would definitely know passes laura have no doubt it will become more and because what putin were he say to foil in five years time and so having been reelected in twenty four finally can't carry on steps down if this law is not in place then what frightens him is the idea. Is that in fact with. He's the hub of the wheel and he's taken out. Then we'll spokes collapse will then a real opposition which does exist. but it's very small and sat on very hard when it raises his voice. That actually stopped means something in which case could be a threat of prosecution. So he's he's trying to cover every base. I think it's very interesting that this is come on top of the idea that he could serve the rest of his life. This gives him the get out. I'm not well or on board. I want to step down. But i can still be secure. Won't be prosecuted prompts. The question stephen wh what does any eventual succession. Like i appreciate this. Very very speculative and it could be twenty four. It could be twenty thirty indeed but do we have any better sense of what putin's own Mission is you know he. He wouldn't want to melt into the shadows of you as you suggested but is there any hints of sort of you know a dynastic succession or do you think he's more interested in in the here and now i wonder if we can speculate even about what happens after he takes his hand from the tiller right now to be honest tom. I wouldn't want to name a name. Because i have no doubt that he will stand again. Twenty twenty four. So we're looking ten years since two twenty thirty two elections after that and because he can't stand again if he's still in good health and he's generally a fit man he's you know he's still does his judo and he's sixty eight years old now. But as we've seen in america being in your late seventies doesn't preclude you from standing for president so if he carries on fit. Well no reason why in twenty thirty he wouldn't stand again so you know. There's a whole generation of politicians would come up behind him. Then they may be the ones that maybe twenty thirty six fact we may be looking at three. Fold as a israel change. I'm if there is a change. Before that i can't really see it happening if health matters. Don't intervene before two thousand thirty so really as standing where we are now looking ahead. Ten years that famous phrase in brisbane week is a long time in politics. Ten years off it on.
Jesus The Scapegoat
"As the day breaks. Jesus has been through three religious trials and the rulers declare him guilty the next step. If they want to enact the death penalty is to present him to the roman governor pontius pilot because only the romans can hand down the death penalty so he's taken from his religious trials to a civil trial with pilot. The people accused jesus of claiming to be a king. since that would pose a threat to the roman authorities. In luke's account they even say jesus had forbidden them to pay their taxes to caesar. But we know that's ally based on his response to them in luke twenty pilot questions about being a king and in john's account. Jesus explains that his kingdom is not of this world otherwise his followers would be fighting. And they aren't. He says he's not there to fight but to speak truth in pilot responds with the question. That has always been popular response to the gospel. What is truth. In luke's account pilot jesus to king herod before proceeding with things. It seems like pilot is trying to find a loophole for having to make a judgment because jesus from another jurisdiction even though his alleged crimes have been committed in jerusalem so he sends him off to king. Herod a higher authority. The king and his soldiers tried to wound and shame jesus by putting a purple robe and a crown of thorns on his head mocking his royalty and send him back to pontius pilot so now pile has to make some kind of judgment call but before jesus was ever brought to pilot for the first time while he was still being beaten and mocked at the high priest house overnight. Pilots wife was asleep in her bed. Having a nightmare about jesus it was so upsetting that she sends word to pilot to leave. Jesus alone maybe. This dream is from god as a means of heaping judgment on pilot when he surrenders jesus to be crucified. Or maybe the streets from satan who continues to try to thwart the crucifixion. Because he knows it means his defeat when pilot returns to the people declares jesus innocent but he offers him an option he says typically on passover. We release a prisoner so should be jesus or this guy named barabbas barabbas is a convicted felon who committed multiple crimes including robbery insurrection. And even murder and the people choose to release barabbas. If you with us during the old testament you may remember the story of the sacrificial goat and the scapegoat from vivica sixteen one goat is sacrificed as a sin offering and the other is set free into the wilderness. This is a picture of that story. Actually that was a picture of this story and it's also a picture of us. We are barabbas. Set free because christ was kept as the sin offering. The people demand that jesus be crucified pilot tries to dodge any responsibility by handing jesus over to the people but no matter how dismissive he is and no matter. How many times. He washes his hands. Passivity doesn't equal innocence as the people respond. They accidentally speak a truth. That is anyone's only hope in matthew. Twenty seven twenty five. They say his blood beyond us on our children realize it but that is the only hope for any of us that the blood of a sacrificed would cover. Our sins is willing sacrifice. Paid for the sins of all gods kids

He was a little bit concerned about blindsiding the suitors, Claire's former suitors, and she said, I just know that this process moves very quickly and you start to invest a lot of feelings Early on. I don't know if that's the case for some of them. On def, So I'm more than happy to have that conversation with them, and if they don't feel like this is the right time for them, or I'm not right for them. They can walk away at this point.

Oh, it's like this is real life. It's not just a TV show, you know. She
Bo Jackson believes he'd average 350-400 yards per game in today's NFL
"This next topic quickly by prefacing it. With falling statement. Oh, Jackson. Is the most impressive athlete I have ever seen. Period. Oh, Jackson, the most impressive athlete I've ever seen. In my lifetime, and it's not just that he played professional baseball and pro football and did so at the same time. There's been a few other guys who have done that. But they didn't come anywhere near Anywhere close to his holy crap moments in both sports did Bo produced. I'm talking about a guy was an all star in both sports, Not just a guy that played both sports at the same time, But a guy who was an all star in both sports a guy who not only could have been a whole family in one I'd argue he could be a whole family in both. I mean in either, but in both, Yeah, I said it like if he doesn't get hurt, and Bo want to spend his entire career playing both sports he probably could have, and he probably could have ended up with two bus. The guy was that explosive. He was that much of a freak show. Like if you're the right age, and I say Bo Jackson's name you might think of that frozen rope that he threw to gun down Harold Reynolds at the plate Or maybe that home run in the All Star game or the home run. He hit with one hand on the back. Or that wall run. Or maybe you Michael football and think about him humiliating Brian Bosworth and the Seahawks on Monday night. The guy was an unbelievable talent. Ah, fear ist running back and his career ended way too soon. I mean, you want to talk about a two sports door? This guy was so talented Once when he came on this program, he did an interview. Any ate a salad at the exact same time. So it is great to have you back on. How are you doing? I'm sitting. I'm sitting making phone calls after emails. Trying to eat up Caesar salad with grilled calamari at my favorite Italian restaurant. It's a good life, but it's a good life and you've earned it. So where are you right now? What city actually roll in Chicago on Like I said, I've been out running errands and just working. Actually, I'm working harder now than I did both sports. It's against you an interview with me, and he's eating a calamari salad. On answering email, too. So again, Let me say this very loudly, very proudly and very clearly, both. Jackson is the most impressive athlete I've ever seen. Having said that? Po was on the 21st and prime podcast. Check out would bow had to say about Bo. Nobody no more with me being a ball carrier. My coat's caught us number one, he said. I know you can run. But I will teach you How to carry that football, He said. That football is like your newborn baby. Don't put it on the ground and keep it away from the alright so nothing too crazy there A former players saying the guys today don't want to tackle But they don't attack the right way. I mean, nothing really crazy about that. Not really surprising. It's kinda what former players do write in pretty much every single sport. They say that was way better back when they played. But then Bo takes it a step further like this. Then I want to take me. I don't know about the hit Iraq, wrapping everybody's running into each other and trying to use a shoulder pants but not the ball carrier down. All right. Cool. Once again. I'm fine with this. Maybe wrapping up really is a lost art. Maybe guys are too focused on trying to hit guys with their shoulders and knock him down instead of actually tackling them. Maybe they're not focused on proper technique and fundamentals. I see you, Bo. Like if you start to think about it, and you watch Derrick Henry run and you watch what Derrick Henry is doing right now. You might start to imagine, man. If Derrick Henry could do that today. What would Bo Jackson be able to Dio if he played in today's game? What kind of damage could Bo do on a weekly basis? Funny you should ask because Bo himself has been thinking about that very thing. And while you were doing the Alfredo Bo did the math. If I play doing this here man is free because nobody wraps up anymore. They run into each other with the path notice. Bo's the only one not laughing when he made that statement. Bo just said he would be averaging 3 52 400 yards per game in the NFL. But I could see that in Tech Mobile, the only thing more impressive than real life. Bo Jackson was techno bowl. Bo Jackson. Techno Bobo was going for 3 52 400 per game every single time out. Hell, he was doing that in the first half. But in real life in the NFL 3 52 400 yards per game in today's game. Listen, there are two dudes that I do not mess with ever Mike Tyson and Bo Jackson.

The Roman Empire (with Hannah McIntyre)
"This is wonderful because we've actually had some requests Yes for this this topic and neither of us have been able to bring ourselves. Haven't been have mustered up enough courage. I can I can do the pronunciations justice. Oh, see now that's bullshit. Tell. You land. Will probably bad. So don't worry. Yeah that didn't Stop Hannah. As I have never done a Roman episode either I don't know why I'm up here on my high horse but anyway. Thank you for this I'm so excited. Please Hannah we get away. All right well, the Roman empire was the Post Republican period of ancient Rome the generally accepted dates of the Roman Empire from twenty seven BC to four, seventy, six, eighty although I'll talk about some of the differing opinions about the exact dates. Later, I WANNA start off by laying some of the groundwork of how room operated before we get into the Roman Empire itself. This city and Kingdom of Rome was mythological founded around seven hundred and fifty BC with seven fifty three BC being the most commonly accepted date. It was founded by Romulus the city's namesake and his brother Ramos who are nursed by she will after being abandoned on the banks of the river. Tiber. ROMULUS ended up killing his brother during a dispute over which the seven hills to build the new city on and became the first. King of Rome who? Start. Yeah, just you know as you do murder brother side, you want to build your city on late normal things normal Italian things I would say. Yeah. That's. That's true. So. The Roman Kingdom was the earliest period in Roman history when seven kings ruled before it became a republic. So in five Oh nine BC, the monarchy was overthrown and the Roman Republic was established the majority of the former king's functions were passed onto two men named consuls who are elected to term of one year and could be prosecuted after council ships ended if abuse those powers Ooh I like that. Yeah. That's a little. GonNa Balance. Right there. Yeah exactly and under the Republic Room also began the practice of assigning dictators basically, if things got. So Harry that they're like now we can't risk multiple dudes working to solve this problem. Just let one guy decide everything. So elegant stunned, they could choose a person to be a dictator for six months for six months. That's Max dictator I think you know yeah, I like. It was their choice and also if whatever the dictator was chosen to carry out, usually it was war like somebody or something I if that finished earlier than the six months period, the dictator was actually expected to them be like, okay, that's it. I'm done and dislike resigned their dictatorship. Okay, that's also something that the Italians are really good about is giving power. and. They were actually fairly common until the end of the second punic war, which is the one with Hannibal and the elephants and actually did work pretty well late the Roman republic was basically constantly at war during this time since it went from essentially being a city sitting on a bunch of hills to being invaded by gulls then they took over the entire Italian peninsula and they defeated Carthage over the course of the three punic worse than they conquered all of modern bakeries and finally they had three different slave revolts with the last one being the one with Spartacus said everyone who's about and. So obviously that much war and that much rapid expansion meant there is like unrest in the air and it opened the door to a lot of military leaders to make their mark in the world, which is where we're gonNA start our main story about the empire. Julius. Caesar was never an emperor of Rome and died under the Roman Republic and not the Roman Empire that you cannot start talking about the Roman Empire without first talking about my boy JC.

"The morning started slowly for Caesar. The march was an important religious holiday for the Romans. As well as the day to settle debts he had plenty to do yet. Couldn't even seem to get started instead. He had to endure. A deluge of ominous warnings and paranoid whispers. His doctors worried. He would soon have a dizzy spell and collapse. His friends claimed there was a conspiracy against him. Even his wife help. Hernia harangued him to stay at home claiming she'd had frightening dreams of his violent demise. Luckily he was saved by his friend. And Confidante Decima Brutus. Brutus wave away. Help complaints and the rumors of revolt as idle gossip. The Senators had invited Caesar to the theatre hoping to honor him with a gladiatorial if he turned them down over a strange dream. They'd be insulted. Brutus and Caesar then made the long walk Caesar's home to the theater of pompey constructed by his ally turned nemesis. Hoppy the great though Caesar had mixed feelings about the general he admired pompiers legacy. The theater was the first of its kind and featured a breathtaking manicured garden complete with hand. Sculpted water pieces. But Caesar didn't get much chance to admire the scenery that day instead brutus ushered him into the Curia. A small room near the entrance to the theater inside. Dozens of senators were waiting. He'd hardly sat down. When one lucious Tilles CIMBER approached him lucious begged Caesar to allow his exiled brother who blessed to come home to Rome. Caesar refused to consider the matter but lucious would not be easily dismissed. He pleaded with Caesar to let Pugliese. Return even clawing at Caesar's Toga and grasping his shoulders. As Lucius spoke the other senators started to crowd Caesar lending their support to lucious and babbling about their own pet projects. Finally a stunned and annoyed. Caesar cast lucious away proclaiming. Why this is violence. The moment was exactly what another Senator Casca was waiting for with. Caesar's is on Lucius. Casca drew a dagger from his Toga and rusted. At Caesar's neck landed only a shallow cut and in an instant. Caesar spun around and grabbed. Casco's arm ever the Kool military man. Caesar remained calm and held casca firmly at his mercy but CASCA had only been the first strike and it was impossible for Caesar to stop all his enemies as he started to question. Casca he felt a white hot pain explode across his back then. Another then another. He was stabbed twenty three times as he lay covered in blood. There's some dispute about his last words. Several sources claim. He didn't say anything one claims. He covered his face with his Togo when he saw his friend. Brutus had joined in the assassination another state. Caesar addressed Brutus you to child. It was this version adapted by Shakespeare. To et Tu Brute then Fall Caesar which has reigned supreme in the public consciousness since then but the fall of Caesar was only the first step in the conspirators quest to seize power a quest which would eventually lead to the total collapse of the Roman republic coming up.

Julius Caesar was stabbed in the back by his political enemies immediately following his death the conspirators ran throughout Rome proclaiming that the dictator was dead and that the city was free. The reaction was not exactly what they expected. Though Caesar had been a dictator he was immensely popular among the lower classes of the city. He also had support from a vast portion of his veteran forces. The all rallied behind mark. Antony an ally of Caesar who had tried to stop the assassination. Antony said about consolidating his position as the remaining conspirators slipped out of Rome and built armies of their own but Antony's progress was slowed when he learned Cesar had left the bulk of his fortune to his eighteen year. Old Grand Nephew and adopted son Octavius after struggling amongst themselves octavius. Antony eventually formed an alliance together. They set out to face the armies of the so called liberators who supported the assassination of Caesar. The liberators were led by. Brutus and Cassius two of the men who had killed Caesar in forty two BC. Antony and Octavius set sail and attacked the army of the liberators near the Grecian city of Philip Pie. Both armies were of similar size. But Antony and octavius forces were better rested into battles the Roman forces vanquished the liberators. Thousands of soldiers were killed and both Cassius and brutus died by suicide to prevent their capture with that. The civil war ended but the struggle for power continued as the Roman empire was divided between octavius. Mark Antony and Lapidus who had been Caesar's master of Horse in the ensuing years octavius strengthened his position in the western regions of the empire. While Antony did the same in the east intermittent conflict erupted between the two over the years but things did not truly come to a head again until thirty three. Bc that year civil war looked imminent once more. Antony allied with Cleopatra in Egypt. Named Caesar and Cleopatra's son the true heir of Caesar Octavius couldn't stand to have his status as Caesar's heir threatened in thirty two B. C. E. He rallied the Senate to his side and declared war against Cleopatra and Antony the resulting conflict ended in Antony's final defeat in thirty BC. He died in Cleopatra's arms with almost all of octavius. As enemies gone he was left to acquire supreme power for himself. He eventually took on the name. Caesar Augustus and ushered in an era known as the principal. The principal mark the beginning of a time where Rome was ruled by a single emperor formally ending the Roman Republic. Though Augusta says later rule would usher in the POX Romana A- period of peace his efforts to concentrate political power likely contributed to the eventual fall of the empire heralded as a power mad dictator by his assassins. Julius Caesar would have likely founded amusing that these same assassins ensured the death of the Republic in life and in death. Caesar played a pivotal role in the trajectory of the empire and his murder became the quintessential symbol of betrayal at the hands of one's friends a backstabbing a symbol. That will continue to persist for Millennia..

"Result all the same and yet you still had the assassins killed well yes murder is murder a crime no matter the victim surely you I would agree. You are ruthless man Cesar. There's no other way for Caesar to be. You are welcome to stay in the palace if you choose to stay in Egypt for a while. Thank you I look forward to delving into many more of Egypt spudis and treasurers and thus began a legendary a romance between Julius Caesar and Queen Cleopatra When Cleopatra and her brother went to war against each other it was her alliance with Caesar. That turned the tide title battle. Caesar's armies quickly installed Cleopatra as the Sole Pharaoh of Egypt Cleopatra and Caesar never married or really made the relationship public although it was the worst kept secret and all of Rome. Cleopatra was a constant visitor of Caesar's villa. It wasn't hard to connect the dots. The two of them did likely have a son together and end up until Caesar's death they were in love. No one in Rome. Ever took Caesar to task for having a romance with Cleopatra while he was still married in Rome it wasn't considered sittard adultery. If the relationship was with a person of a foreign land another reason for Caesar getting away with it was that now he was a completely beloved leader of the Roman People Camman he had to have some enemies obviously but instead of conscripting them like Sola had done in his youth. Caesar pardoned them all. He kept all his enemies alive. Live how is that a good idea. Well after he took out the last of pompey's supporters around the outskirts of the Roman Empire. Caesar returned to Rome in initially made peace with everyone. He could with him not killing anyone else. Everyone was comfortable with Caesar's rule no one really opposed him and he was made dictator with pretty much. No no issues. Well not everyone was comfortable with Caesar. There were some that found the celebration of Caesar's return in very poor taste as it was Romans. He defeated not foreign born invaders in any case. Caesar kept his dictatorship this time around and began to enact sweeping changes. Caesar never allowed the images of his youth to escape him and he realized that since the days of Marius and Solas war that the Roman republic had been in a state of constant anarchy and that the power struggle between the consoles the Senate and the triumphs would only serve to contribute to the fall of Rome so he established a new constitution in hopes of restoring the government into a strong unit Senate and in hopes of uniting all of Rome's various territories into a single cohesive empire. Caesar went to work passing nonstop legislation that he felt helped worked towards his new goal. He took a new census. In order to lessen the tax and green burden placed upon the people he restructured debt and rewarded families. Who bore many children hoping to quickly repopulate Rome? After so many wars his longest lasting legacy was the restructuring of the calendar. He took inspiration from the adoption. Calendar which was based upon the sun and added three months to account for difference and season the Julian calender made its debut on January first forty five BC e and it basically is the calendar. We still use today on the most important decision at the time. And the one that directly led to Caesar's downfall was the changes he made made to the Senate from here on out. I and I alone will make all decisions. That will have an impact on our great empire. You are all Welcome to come in and debate the matter as you wish but all laws all matters of state will come by my hand. This this is betrayal. This goes against all that room stands for. This is for everything that Rome stands for. This is a rebirth of this great city. This great empire after years of you fools wasting our time and money and arguments and civil war. It is time time someone rose to the occasion to return Rome to its original splendor and that person is Julius. Caesar Yeah Yeah. Remember those people that weren't too happy with the celebration of Caesar's return it was mostly the Senate and the Senate saw the republic crumbling before their eyes and they knew they had to act and act fast. So as you probably remember from reading your Shakespeare in high school many of the senators including Caesar's trusted general brutus conspired it to murder Caesar and restore the Senate's power. Once you may not know is that Shakespeare wasn't creating fiction when he wrote about the soothsayer warning. Caesar of the ides heads of March. Beware the ides of March. In fact Caesar allegedly had plenty of warning before his assassination. According to legend a bird flew into into the hall of Pompeii just days before the murder took place and tore a Laurel branch to pieces as if POMPEII had come back to devise the death of his enemy and a friend friend had said that one of his horses wandered off and began to cry signifying. A great death was about to occur and even a few months before a tomb in the Roman colony of Capela Capela was opened and allegedly one of the vases inside was inscribed with a warning that Italy would pay great price if the tomb was ever disturbed it basically the entire universe was trying to warn Caesar of this great tragedy some Roman historians questioned. Why Caesar didn't take more heed? These warnings some some theorize that Caesar knew he was growing ill and did not care if he died soon or that he knew that his death would only further his 'cause we're all others theorized that Caesar was was buying into his own hype and that he was a god who couldn't be touched on March fifteenth forty four BC. One of the most notable and famous deaths in all of history occurred but fate tried to intervene one more time. Marc Anthony. Why what's the rush rush? Have no time for your games drew bonus and must make it to the Senate floor before but Anthony. They've already in the middle of their meeting interrupt. Them would not be wise. You don't understand. They're they're going to. Oh no not on this to Trapani. It's too late Anthony by now. Dita's it's done. It is for the best of this public. There's nothing you can do you monsters. You fail to realize what you're doing you are starting let me through. Now it's useless. There is nothing you can do to save him. Don't make yourself an enemy. You not an enemy for killing an innocent man in cold blood. Let me go. Let me go. Hello Mark Antony would fail to reach Caesar and time ignorant of what was to come. Caesar's stepped into the Senate chambers and never again stepped out you to my child. Julius Caesar was dead at the age of fifty five but as much as the Senate tried couldn't quiet the legacy of Caesar their air conspiracy would fail the Roman people who had taken a liking to Caesar would revolt against the Senate mark. Antony would lead Caesar's loyal soldiers into war against against the last vestiges of the republic. The Roman Empire had begun. Caesar's adoptive son Gas Octavius. Augustus would eventually become Rome's I emperor Julius Caesar looked his whole life to leave a legacy and to bring greatness to the Caesar name and I would say he was pretty successful at it. It's hard to put into words. Exactly what Caesar's legacy is it expands far beyond what we can ever imagine. He began the Roman Empire helping to spread Rome's influence influence and intellect around the globe. He is the iconic image of the dictator one of the earliest examples of the cult of personality and inspired people such as Napoleon and Mussalini to practice their own form of caesarian rule. But the fact that Julius Caesar is one of history's most famous names and that we are. We're still talking about him here and now says much about Julius legacy than anything else could he wanted to be remembered and he truly.

"Took a great interest in Caesar most likely as a favor Tamari us and took him under his wing during his time in power sin is noted as a man who easily made a tyranny looked like democracy wonder if that will come back up and Caesar's lifetime Senate Zinta thought so highly of the young Julius Caesar that he allowed him to marry his daughter. wait what happened to Cassia well as the Fleming dials Caesar was required required to marry into the upper class and although Cassia was wealthy she was still a member of what was essentially the middle class at the time. Also the law required Caesar to break off off his relationship with his bride. Indeed Cassuto was left in the dust and Caesar was married to Cornelia the daughter of CINNA. So Caesar's plan to get power through. Marriage still was successful just not in the way he expected. Cornelia and Cesar had a single child together. Julia and Caesar seemed happy. It seems Ed kept his promise to make a better life than his father but then came the sulay problem of course word reached Sela of all the machinations happening in Rome. He Still Jill how to defeat mithra dates but in the back of his mind he was always thinking of his return to Rome. After claiming Roman Victory Solo rushed through two days of peace negotiations nations and didn't even contact the Senate about terms highly irregular but Sola was determined to save Rome Sela and Senna's armies engaged in a bloody battle but the sheer power of the Solas army alongside sin is death at the hands of a mutiny. Meant Solo was again victorious. Sola appointed himself indefinite dictator in immediately went to work dismantling the regime. Marius had begun. Sola and his men destroyed statues dug up Marris's corpse and threw it into into the river and took away the power of Marris's allies which included Caesar's position as the Flam dials sees. You understand stand that I can strip you of your inheritance your wife's inheritance and you'll position as the high priest of Jupiter. I would guess I don't. We'll have much of a choice in the matter. You are a smart boy. You will lose all this but you can choose to save your own life. Oh you would be so kind of course you would think me to be a savage. Your Life can be spared if you choose to divorce Cornelia Anelia know what you can take away my power my money my pride my life but you cannot take away that which is personal final to me. Do you not understand the position. You are in boy. Oh I understand. I understand that you're scared of the power that I may yet hold. I hold holds all the power here. That's what you think. This is an act of treason against the dictator of Rome. Know that your life has ended. Caesar and it is by your own hand. Caesar's defiance of Sola was shocking to the new regime. And the first sign of Caesar's Brash side Sela officially really put out a prescription for Caesar not long afterwards proscription was basically a means of the state approving the murder of person but one had defined the approved victim victim. I and no one could find the condemned. Julius Caesar meanwhile the Family and Friends of Caesar who mostly and conveniently were Sala supporters pleaded pleaded with Sela to keep the young Caesar alive even the vestal virgins declared that it would be a mistake in the eyes of the gods to murder him now. That's a big endorsement on your resume. Eventually Solo was calmed down and he canceled the proscription on Julius. Caesar have your own way in. Take him only bear in. Mind that the man you are so eager to save will one day deal the death blow to the cause of the aristocracy which you have joined with me in upholding for in this. Caesar there exists many Mary. Is's Caesar could now breathe a sigh of relief. He was safe from now. Caesar didn't exactly see Sela as a trustworthy guy he still was on the warpath of taking down Maurice's previous allies. There was nothing to indicate that Sola wouldn't reverse his pardon on Caesar if he sneezed the wrong way so Caesar and his wife ran from Rome while they were safe from officially being murdered they headed toward the eastern turn provinces where he still had many associates who remembered his father. Well he also decided to join the army. which would be the beginning of his lifelong passion and that is true? Rise to power a passion that would have been impossible to find a couple of months beforehand because he was too young no because he was the flom in Dallas. The high I priest of Jupiter was not allowed to look at the army or spend more than a few nights outside the city. Heke wasn't even allowed to touch a horse. Seems a little extreme here telling me but if Marius followers had kept in power or even if Sela had not stripped Caesar of his position he could have never even looked to the army as an option. Literally the entire hire. History of our world would be different. If Caesar was never allowed to touch a horse the world would be different simply of Caesar had done anything other than BS accessible soldier and he was a very successful soldier when he was known for his bravery in battle and was one of the youngest ever recipients of the Civic Crown in award given in for saving the civilian in battle. Caesar grew such a reputation among his comrades that he was often entrusted by the generals to take on the most important and significant tasks asks as an example. He was entrusted to travel to Thenia to chat with its King King Nicomedes in hopes of making an ally of his naval fleet. A new soldier a former enemy of Rome now is being sent on his lonesome to make a deal with a king. Let that sink in and Caesar spent a long time the thenia such a long time in fact that it was constantly questioned what he was doing over there. It's likely that Caesar was building his own personal relationship with the king with an eye on his future political aspirations if he had a personal relationship with the country than it wouldn't be too hard to form a partnership if Caesar happened to find himself in a position the power but the rumor that spread around Rome was that Caesar engaged in a sexual relationship with the king. This rumor followed Caesar around for his entire life. Even the soldiers he commanded with just about the legend. Caesar vehemently denied the rumor. But really we'll never know what happened with India Caesar fought with the military until seventy seventy eight BC e when he received word that Selo was dead. Caesar picked up his family and finally returned home a home that always had a special place in his heart. SCISSOR however was back at square one now or really at square zero as he was much worse off societally now than he was when he left and the loss of his inheritance many had no money and his military success meant very little to the general public. Plus with the optimists that supported Sela still in charge of Rome. Caesar wasn't going to take any chances in getting back what he lost and even when he was made aware of the new Anti Sola Group forming he found the group so lacking in leadership and corrupt that he chose not to participate even though it would have raised him back to prominence instead he found a nice house in Sabira living among the lower classes of Rome and turn to to a life of legal advocacy. Something he turned out to be rather good at ladies and gentlemen my fellow Romans. We are here today today not to discuss the past lives of Cornelius. Stola Bella it seems that too many he lived a great past life. Even I can see see that. No we are here to talk about the corruption the extortion the lies and the cheating he lived through in his most recent life as Triumph by the end of this trial. You'll wish for his blood to run through these streets. You'll wish that those past lives lives could have never even existed. You'll whis room. Seems a little harsh. No Oh come now quintas. which or two would you rank above him? Who can rile a crowd more? Get the more engaged than Caesar. Caesar really came into his own. During this period his powerful word choices his in combination with his wild hand gestures and distinctive slightly. High pitched voice made him one of Rome's most noted speakers but even as Caesar gained fame. Mm for taking down Rome's most corrupt leaders. He felt that he still had much room to improve so he once again picked up his things and left Rome this time heading to roads to study under the greatest Greek orders unfortunately along the way he was kidnapped by soliciting pirates. How would Caesar handle handle that? And we'll see after a quick word about our sponsors.

"Com and audible now. One of the fascinating aspects of Caesar's life was the impact of his death because it became one of the most historic moments in all of western history, partially because of the brilliant portrait in Shakespeare's play and the speech by Mark Antony at his funeral partially because Caesar had been such a life force he'd been so dominant. He strode across the Roman empire in such a huge way that his disappearance through death left a vacuum. That would take years to sort out because there was no natural ability for anyone to step in and become Caesar. And so they'll be an entire civil war before he was replaced by his nephew who would actually found the empire itself. Off tavis who becomes Augusta's in his the second month. We name for one of the Caesar's. So you July and August Caesar himself in a way it almost set the stage for his own killing the Greeks had a concept they called hubris and hubris meant that you began to take on to yourself enormous power in enormous self affection, and as you became more and more filled with hubris you began to set yourself up for what the Greeks called nemesis and nemesis was the destruction of the person who had hubris well away Caesar is the perfect model of what the Greeks were trying to warn about the bigger Caesar became the more powerful Caesar became the more people feared him and the more people envied him. Remember the core. This isn't the average Roman. Average woman thought Caesar was fine. Cesar fed them Caesar entertain. Name them Caesar conquered slaves that enrich them associated pretty big base among normal people. But if you're an aristocrat, and you had a great sense of self worth. And you thought your family been around for hundreds of years and here, suddenly you're in the shadow no longer unequal. No longer a fellow aristocrat. No longer a person who could look upon themselves as significant. But instead, you are clearly weaker lesser subordinate smaller, and you hated every minute of it. And you thought who this guy sees that? He's flaunting his power his flaunting his role in history because there was a sense that the bigger Caesar got the smaller the aristocrats got so part of the just pure, old fashioned jealousy. Well, Cesar had now accumulated very substantial number of of aristocrats who just loved him. The couldn't. Senate to his face because they're terrified of him because he'd kill them. So they talked to each other and quiet. They met together. They began conspiring was the second part of this. There was a legitimate honest, deep fear of kingship, it's important wherever the Rome really becomes Roman four seventy six BC when the hit rid of the last king the last Harkin king is replaced and the Romans acquire this deep passionate opposition to having a king. That's why the Republicans so stable for such a long period because in their mind, the alternative is to go back to kingship while now here Caesar who says every day. Oh, I don't really want to be a king. But in the last days before the the ides of March he and Mark Anthony begin to play a game in which are canton, who's chief subordinate starts to say. Oh, well, wouldn't you consider being a king? He's says, no, no, no, nothing's further from my mind. And I really I can't imagine why you would mention the word king and Julius Caesar in the same sentence. Well, the other novels. No, this is the beginning of a setup and that at some point that summer that seasons very likely going to say, well, all right. If you really want me to be king. How can I turn you down? She have both this fear. That Caesar represents the end of the Republic in the death of a system, which was almost five hundred years old by the stage, and you had this personal level of just really deeply disliking Caesar because he's too big too powerful to arrogant too smart, and they just wanna get rid of him conspiracy begins to grow and ironically, the Roman Senate self was being refitted. And so they had to move that meeting place. They chose a poppy sitter..

"This would be the balance between honoring the omens that kept present. Themselves and showing respect for the senators that had been there for the meeting to ensure a quorum was reached if business needed to be transacted. But I love this line by Barry Strauss. When he discusses Decima says, appeal to Caesar as a soldier and Caesar's subsequent decision to go back. He said, quote, Caesar decided to go to the Senate meeting, not because he thought it was safe once the specs, but because he thought it was dangerous and quarter. And so Caesar walked out of his house with decimates some say he was actually leading Caesar by the hand, and they made their way back to the Senate meeting. It was the last time that he would ever see his wife Pernia. It was just before eleven AM. Now Caesar was carried in a litter back to the Senate house, and it is said to have taken him about forty five minutes to get back to the portico of Pompey where this Senate meeting was again taking place. But something very interesting happened on Caesar's way to the Senate meeting. Now, as his litter was being carried through the streets, it is said that the streets were crowded with onlookers and people swarming the liquors who guarded Caesar trying to get a glimpse of their dictator. But one of these people who is trying to get Caesar's attention was a man named Artem adores. Now, the connection between Armadores and Caesar is somewhat unclear. Some say he was a philosophy teacher that's either new, but supposedly Artem adores new Caesar, well enough that Caesar would have recognized him and would have allowed him to approach litter as it was carried. Now in one version of the story. Armadores tried to get Caesar's attention and he couldn't given the crowd. So we asked someone else to give Caesar the note that he had written and rolled up. But in another version, Artem adores did make it up to Caesar's litter. And he handed him the note personally and begged him to read the note on the way as it was extremely important. But regardless of which version is true. Caesar somehow did get the note, but he never read it. He simply held it in his hand with the rest of the documents that he was to review on the way to the meeting. And that changed everything for had. He read the note. He would have been warned about what was going to take place at the Senate meeting. No one knows how Artem adores knew of the plot, but somehow he knew and he did everything that he could to get word to Caesar in time, but to no avail. Caesar's litter arrived at the Senate meeting at the portico of Pompey around eleven thirty AM or so. And there is another story that comes to us at the moment. Cesar stepped out of his litter. Caesar began to make his way from his litter into the Senate meeting when another Senator a man named pope Ilias Linus who supposedly was in on the plot approached Caesar and started talking to him in hushed tones, which Caesar leaned into here. Now, Brutus and Cassius again, two of the three leaders of the assassination plot could see this exchange taking place, and they worried that Linus was warning Caesar about the plot. The two men supposedly slowly reached for their daggers at that point. But they quickly realized that it wasn't a warning Linus was speaking to Caesar about, but some request for a favour Caesar, thus moved forward, and he. Stopped just before he entered the room so that the obligatory sacrifices could once again be made. And once again, the sacrifices yielded bad omens for Caesar, Caesar said to have, again, considered cancelling the meeting, then there without entering at all. But was again pressed by decimates who is still at his side and said something to the effect of quote, make your own Manley excellence, a favorable omen and quoted Caesar's ego was the right pressure point and decimates kept pressing. And with this Julius Caesar walked forward and he entered the room still in his hand, rolled up was the note that Artem adores had written him warning him that he was about to be attacked. And it should also be said that sources say, this note was being carried in Caesar's left hand. Again, a battle. Oh, man. It was fast approaching noon. Now, let me quickly paint the scene for you to give you an idea of what the room looked like when Caesar walked in according to stories, best guesses, given the ruins of the temple and loose descriptions..

"The roman people was associated with the mother of caesar's child and quote and this event obviously push sched some suspicion ford about what caesar's intentions were regarding cleopatra and rome itself but it was this next move by caesar that worried those concerned about caesar's ambitions the most and here's what happened the roman senate had around this time bestowed upon caesar a series of pretty impressive honors doctor joann fletcher captures it well when she writes quote the senate then transformed the traditional temporary title of dictator into a permanent office by declaring him dictator perpetuo or dictator for life they awarded him the purple robes of the toga per per i the dress of rome's former kings and even a throne of gold and quote now before you go and ask yourself why if the senate was growing so suspicious of caesar's intentions and his ambitions did they award him these honors you have to know that the senate at this time was made up of about nine hundred people under caesar up from the six hundred that it had been prior and even though there were a good number of senators that hated caesar and were plotting against him caesar still had a lot of fans in the senate as again he had done a lot of good from these folks perspective politics then was just as it is today different parties saul the world differently and they wanted different things etc and if enough members of one party can come together on certain pieces of legislation than that legislation gets through this is how caesar was awarded the affirmation donner's despite the strong opposition against him he had enough supporters in the senate to make it happen but after this all happened remember according to some he's a king in all but name another event took place that was also very symbolic to the roman people a crown appeared one morning on one of the statues of caesar in the center of rome someone had placed the crown on the statue overnight and every now and again reportedly all over the city people could be heard yelling long live the king and these were ominous signs for the republic but again going back to the big move by caesar that exacerbated the worries of all who were concerned about caesar's ultimate ambitions on february fifteenth of forty four bc rome was celebrating its annual lupercalia festival and this festival was attended by a good portion of the city as it was said to be festival that purified the city and brought health and fertility to the people of rome it was at this festival that caesar apparently decided to float a trial balloon relating to his quote bid for the throne as fletcher puts it according to some sources caesar wanted to get a real feel for how the people of rome would receive him as potential king and again who knows for sure what was going through his mind but the events that follow which are consistent through most sources certainly seemed like this was his intention at this festival the lupercalia festival caesar was on a stage of sorts so all the crowd in the forum could see him and he was wearing the purple toga that the kings of rome had worn and he sat down upon the golden throne that he had been awarded by the senate so visually picturing it in your mind caesar certainly looked like a king at this point what then the trial balloon was floated mark antony remember him well he had always lingered in the background of julius caesar's core circle of supporters and he hadn't fact held various leadership positions in rome during some of caesar's war campaigns and obviously anthony will play a large role in cleopatra's life to come we'll at this festival while caesar was on stage in front of all the people in the forum in his purple robes sitting on his golden throne mark antony walked onstage and approached caesar and in his hand was a peculiar object it was a royal diem much like the one cleopatra war around her head to signify her role as queen of egypt only this diem was said to be wrapped around a loyal wreath of sorts and what it appeared to be was quite startling to all that could see it for there was no mistaking what it looked like it was the crown of a king and it was clear to most who witnessed it that this all was a staged event by caesar and no doubt antony but also by cleopatra for the.

"Advocate these choppy waters using rational argument but what if rational argument is impossible because we can never escape our emotions that's the unsettling idea the core of this play julius caesar's first real argument is made by caches the brains of the operation when it comes to killing caesar he's trying to persuade brutus that caesar must die and he can't stop fixating on his personal animus toward caesar here's a bit of cash is describing swimming match between the two men a cooed as i was i plunged in and bad him follow so indeed did the torrent roared and we did buffet it with lusty sinews throwing it aside and stemming with hearts of controversy but air we could arrive the point proposed caesar cried help me caches or i sink i as a knee as our great ancestor did from the flames of troy upon his shoulder the old end casey's so from the waves of tiber did i the tired caesar and this man he's now become a god and cassius is a wretched creature and must bend his body if caesar carelessly but nod on him there's a rational point being made here caesar doesn't deserve to be king or to be so revered he's a very fallible man and caches knows this because he saved caesar's life during that swimming but there's also a petty emotional point being made here cash is saying in essence i kicked his ass and now i'm supposed to obey them these two points can't be separated this is why brutus stoicism is so important the play and why the other characters keep bringing it up as a stoic he should be more rational than anyone else but over the course of the play brutus xtss stoicism is shown to be a kind of performance he's play acting at being dispassionate shakes her was himself in actor although we don't know what parts he played shows he was obsessed with performance it's perhaps the dominant theme of his work and julius caesar performances one of the vehicles that drives roman society off a cliff the play suggests that when politics becomes a competition to see who can get the most applause from the crowd you are in deep trouble it's almost inevitable that a skilled demagogue like mark antony.

"She robbed a an obama ask caesar oscar at the public did a trumpian caesar and that can be the big takeaway but at the end of the day i think all good directors are trying to do the play and to to do shakes replay and be of service to that and the contemporary setting hopefully unlocks the taxed unlocks the situation makes the situation clearer to an audience that you know is able to read contemporary visuals like like a suit and attract suit or what journalist looks like and here's tyler dubrovsky who's two thousand sixteen production at trinity rep in rhode island portrayed caesar as a woman in a pantsuit and wanted to see what happened when we put this centuries old play that depicts a historical event that happens thousands of years ago if we put that in modern dress and the audience would have to grapple with the themes and ideas of the play as if they were happening now you know i think a lot of the themes and ideas in the play are sort of eternal and they deal with things that you know humans and and our human civilization and been dealing with for thousands of years like what it means to be a democracy what is what does it mean to be a dictator ship what does it mean to be governed and i think that those are things that we still grapple with today when tyler was directing the play it seemed clear that hillary clinton would be president rhode island recently elected its first female governor it seemed to me a good time to have that discussion about what it means to have a woman in charge and i was also curious what that would do to the play i didn't necessarily know exactly what it would do i was.

"The fall of rome took about a century and shakespeare's julius caesar tells the end of that story it depicts the death rattle of the republic dissolves into recrimination violence and mob rule in the process it asks some really big questions do we overestimate the power of reason in politics when the republic is in crisis can it be saved by any means necessary once violence enters a political system can it be stopped when it's no longer useful or is it like a drop of ink and a glass of water transforming everything around it how will we know when we've reached the point of no return where each step taken to solve the crisis just causes bigger and bigger crises these are scary questions to ask at least i find them scary but one of the things that allows us to do is ask the scary questions in a safe environment and julius caesar we get to see these questions play out in a story taken from history here's how that story goes eight it's the feast of looper a citywide festival that purifies rome in verts evil caesar has just returned victorious from a bloody civil war against pompey his only real rival he's now the most powerful and popular man in the known world so he's being feast it there's parades in his honor and there's talk about making caesar king now this is a huge problem rome's origin stories about hero ick citizens overthrowing an oppressive monarchy sound familiar and the romans are so anti monarchy that often accusing your political opponents of wanting to become king is a good way to get them killed but caesar is so popular that this time it seems like it might very well happen and this deeply frightens a group of roman senators led by guy named caches cash he's the power behind the scenes and at the top of the play he's already organizing conspiracy to assassinate caesar over the course of the place.
