How Should Elites Treat Their Country?

"Treat their country? How should the people in charge of their country and the economic elites or in cultural institutions or in the movies or in any form of power? How should they treat their country? Well, a hundred years ago, Carnegie Mellon and chase, they were some of the wealthiest people ever in the history of the planet. Now there is no doubt that they were powerful and that they had wealth, but they used that wealth largely to try and preserve America, build hospitals, libraries, build YMCAs, build things that actually helped the well-being of the nation. They wanted a strong America. Now, over the last couple of years, a common lament from this program has been the fact that the people who are in charge of our country, the wealthiest people, are involved in this pattern of self hatred. They're engaged in this relentless pattern of not doing what's best for the country of engaging in ideas for the World Economic Forum, the suppression of free speech, woke ideology, the suffocation of the individual, we have talked about how people like Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos and George Soros and the Google people and the Louis Vuitton guy. They seem to be so fixated on using their unlimited wealth to do things that actually hurt the cause of liberty. Not help the cause of liberty. That hurt the strength of America and weaken America. This has seemed to be almost overwhelming, especially the last couple of years. We've been complaining about how AstraZeneca Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna. They cooperate with Fauci and the FDA and Bill Gates and it seems like the elites have it all figured out. That they always have each other's back and basically the only thing that we have left is the truth, which matters and common everyday people fighting for that. We felt outnumbered and for good reason. We turn around and we

"When astronomer diane turn shack move to pittsburgh in nineteen eighty-one she noticed. Something big was missing from the night sky. When i grew up in new england you could just walk outside and look up and see the milky way. But when i arrived in pittsburgh the sky had started to decline in quality. Still she says at the time her students at carnegie mellon university were very familiar with the milky way they knew about stars and constellations. That is not the case anymore forty years later. I have to explain what the milky way is and describe what it looks like in a show pictures and they think those pictures are fake. Because of light pollution major constellations can be totally invisible in cities. The pittsburgh city council is now trying to do something about it with the help of scientists like turn check. It passed a dark sky. Ordinance last week to reduce light pollution. This city is going to replace streetlights with warm tone. Led lights and they're also going to install shields so that late doesn't travel up what we're trying to do is cut out the light at the blue end of the spectrum because blue light scatters more easily than red light in the atmosphere rate. That's why the sky is blue. So blue light scatters everywhere. It doesn't stay where your lighting and to measure progress. She has some help in the higher ups in august. The astronauts on the international space station took some pictures of pittsburgh for on a clear night. And that's the before shot. The astronauts are gonna continue to take pictures of pittsburgh so we will have during pictures and after pictures. Terzic believes that as the sky's get darker more people will look up. In wonder that means more people more children will be able to see it and the benefits of being connected to half of our universe. I can't overstate that.

Fear the actions of the carnegie steel company reflect poorly on the party and come back to bite them in the upcoming election but politicians of all stripes realize they have a real problem if workers corporations are literally forming armies to wage battle against each other. What does that say of the government's power or lack thereof. This must be addressed that said the strike fails clean freak plays an odd role in this.

"A war. It's now early. Eighteen ninety two roughly two and a half years since the johnstown flood. Andy is the largest steel producer in the united states his size he's looking to reorganize again and bring all his businesses. Save for it coke under a new umbrella. The carnegie steel company. We're talking about an enterprise with the value of twenty five million seeing profits of five million per year yeah not too shabby. Meanwhile andy's increasingly enjoying being a philanthropist. In new york alone. He's throwing millions into a glamorous new music hall as well as teamed up with the famous banker. J pierpont morgan to create a botanical garden and a massive arena called madison square garden. Okay these aren't straight up charity. But there are some charitable aspects in there and he's playing those up that set he's also doing some straight up charitable stuff like building libraries. Oh does any love gifting. The public libraries. It's part of why many on both sides of the atlantic would be happy to tell you the andy carnegie. Isn't one of those immoral robber barons rather. He's an enlightened industrialist. But it's amazing. How fast perceptions can change about sixty miles west of johnstown pennsylvania just a few miles outside. Pittsburgh is a town of ten thousand called homestead any employees three thousand eight hundred workers in his steel mill here. Seven hundred eighty of whom are skilled workers represented by the most labor union in the steel industry. The amalgamated association. The amalgamated current. three year. Contract is about up and its representatives are feeling good about the upcoming negotiations. It's no secret. How well carnegie steel doing an andy has gone on public record as we well know stating his support for collective bargaining so surely figure this will go smoothly but it doesn't the ascendant chairman under the newly organized company h. Clay frick is digging in his heels. On three items i he says these employees whose pay reflects a sliding scale related to the cost of steel need to accept a new minimum rate of twenty three dollars per tonne rather than their current twenty five dollars. There's no maximum payout and so clarke's if they are open to the benefits of highs they can share more of the burden that comes with the lows second. This contract expiration date needs to move from june thirtieth to december thirty first to better line with the calendar year. Finally a third point with another aspect of pay determined by the mill's output. He says the amalgamated needs to accept a reduction here as well because it's the new technology they've invested in not the workers the has significantly increased output. Well the union reps aren't standing for this. They think this is ridiculous. They're willing to come down to twenty four dollars on the sliding scale but no less as for changing the day they know it has nothing to do with the counter and everything to do with steel sales dropping in the winter. They are moving to the years weakest point just to give carnegie steel the upper hand in the next sit down and ask for output click hitting. These men worked themselves to the bone. He risked their lives in dangerous mills. That's productions up not his new tack so now we are two perspectives. But here's the real kicker fight only relates to three hundred. Twenty five of the amalgamated seven hundred eighty men at the three thousand eight hundred employees homestead mill in other words. It's a small group but things get heated fast. Clay has a three mile fence built to encircle the mill. It has holes supposedly for a lookout but the kind of look more like a pork for rifles. And it's topped with barbed wire. He also rex guard towers equipped with searchlights. What on earth well. The thing is clay's overreacting because a strike a few months ago at the edgar thomson. Mill has spooked. Also wants to show andy he can handle things. Scotsman is a little checked out right now playing in his native homeland. Let's not mince words for all his progressive talk. Andy's given klay pretty much full latitude in these negotiations. But you know if you want the skilled and unskilled workers to set aside their differences which they most definitely have as the first group significantly out earns the ladder turning the mill into some sort of prison slash military. Outpost is a solid way to do it. The impasse negotiations folds right through the contract's expiration. On june thirtieth. Meanwhile clay orders the mill. Closed starts looking to bringing in strikebreakers in response an army of skilled and unskilled steelworker sees the mill but the moustachioed carnegie chairman isn't backing down. Play will build his own army. Just past two a m july sixth eighteen ninety two three hundred pinkerton men clamber into two large barges along the ohio river. Just north of pittsburgh between them. They have three hundred pistols two hundred fifty winchester rifles and more than enough ammo on food to lay siege the soon heading southeast travelling via the local river systems toward the homestead. But as they move in the dark of night labor union century notices them. He telegraphs the mill. Watch the river. Steamer with barges left here an hour and a half later at four. Am the three hundred well-armed pinkerton derive their greeted by an army of five thousand steel men and their families. Some of the workers take shots tugboats pulls the largest toward the dots. But you delete her. Hugh o'donnell tries to avoid a firefight with the boats shouting distance. He calls out on behalf of five thousand men. I beg of you to lead here. At once we the workers in these mills are peaceably inclined. We have not damaged any property. And we do not intend to if you will send a committee with us we will take them through the works and promise them a safe return to their boats but in the name of god and humanity. Don't attend to enter. These works by force. A pinkerton captain jumps onto the dock. He answers we were sent here to take possession of this property. We don't wish blood. But few men don't withdraw. We will note every one of you down and enter in spite of you. You'd better disperse for land. We will but follows. God details all the time isn't it. Who's in a different place. Different time and different people. But i've told you the story before more than once. Further words exchanged there's more posturing and then it happens to guns discharge and yeah you guessed it. We don't know which side fired for. All we do know is the battle has commenced to armies both of whom have more guns than experienced soldiers fire at each other until five pm nine evening. Perhaps we can think they're inexperienced for the relatively low death. Count seven strikers and at least three pinkerton the strikers take the pinkerton prisoners doesn't last long though days later.

"It's dark cloudy morning. may thirty first. Eighteen eighty nine and torrential rainfall is pounding the city of johnstown pennsylvania it began as a drizzle the night before but started coming down hard eleven pm. Still none of this is to unusual for this iron working city of thirty thousand nestled right by the confluence of the little connemara in stoney creek rivers which merged to form the larger conham river. Flooding is a part of life. Johnstown some are getting a bit more nervous about this current storm though as we approach twelve noon water at the corner of main and market streets is about five feet deep yet others still consider this business as usual townsfolk simply. Roll up their carpets. Put their pianos up on chairs to prevent water damage and carry on with their day but if the less concerned are changing their tune. By two o'clock folks start retreating to their homes as all of johnstown not just the lower districts is under at least two and as many as ten feet of water. Unfortunately their houses won't protect many from what is about to come fourteen miles upstream. The southwark dam is about to break here it before they see it. Words failed to do justice but it's terrible indescribable roar and then it hits a wall of water surges through the town. Reverend david beal knows the high ground is their only family bible in hand the white haired clean-shaven man of the cloth urges children in neighbors the lloyd's to get up to the second floor upstairs. Upstairs waters rising around as you climb. Staircase is waist deep in water as reaches the top ignoring the furniture clothing around them. The deals in the lloyd's move up higher still to the attic. David's about to join them gets another surprise. A man on a piece of wood crashes through a second story window shocked. reverend asks. Who are you. Where did you come from the poor disoriented man crooks out one word woodvale. David connect some dots. He realizes the flood carried his unexpected visitor more than a mile upon reaching the attic. The reverend leads the group and prayer and reciting scripture twelve year. Old son looks to him. And says surely papa god will take care of us for. We are his children. The bible of him boy recites from the twenty-third saul. Though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death. I will fear no evil power with me they rod staff. They comfort me amen. As his son looks to god. The reverend looks out an attic window. The debris of hundreds of homes railroad cars businesses and trees are floating in a sixteen to forty foot deep river worse. David co only watch in horror as waves carry both the living and the dead. The waters hurl. People he knows friends and children right past his attic window and all he can do is sit helplessly hoping his households together words fail to describe the impact of the johnstown flood on the community and the nation the twenty million tons of water became crashing down on the steelmaking town swept away far more than buildings and railroads it ended. Two thousand two hundred and nine lives clara barton aka the angel of the battlefield springs into action. You may remember her from episode sixty three. This former civil war nurse is now the sixty seven year old founder and president of the american red cross setting up in a railroad car site. She directs hundreds of volunteers as they treat the physically mentally wounded distribute food and clothing and even build six two story temporary shelters for the many whose homes the flood carried away. Such relief efforts after a natural disaster are as unprecedented as the floods damage. Clara and her red cross volunteer's or heroes but as the days and weeks pass we don't just have heroes villains. The storm was an active nature. Sure but the damn have held though originally built for a canal. Quickly put out of use. By the railroad's the south fork fishing and hunting club now owns the dam and its company reservoir club and its grounds are getaway for pittsburgh superwealthy to fish boat. Otherwise relax have he been responsible stewards though or did the clubs negligence. Just kill over. Two thousand americans and destroy the future of countless thousands more turns out it's the latter heavily steelworking community of johnstown is enraged to realize this clubs. Carelessness has cost them. The lives of their friends and loved ones. Andrew carnegie is in europe at the time but horrified upon hearing what's happened. He donates sixty five thousand dollars to rebuild the library and more but even a gift equal to more than a million dollars in twenty-first-century currency won't absolve him andy and his partner clay frick number among the club's sixty one members. This puts a stain on the scotsman's reputation. As an industrialist who hasn't lost touch with his humble beginnings cares about the people but if anything can exacerbate this damage to his reputation it's.

Eighteen fifty nine in altoona pennsylvania. While we know. Tom scott will get crushed in later years. Going toe to toe with. John rockefeller today. He still an up and coming employee of the pennsylvania railroad. he's just returned home from philadelphia where his interview. With the pennsylvania's president j edgar thomson resulted in a promotion. Indeed thomas moving up from a railroad general superintendent to vice president this does mean however. The sideburn wearing thick haired. Tom has to move to philadelphia. That leaves a lingering question. What will happen to andy. Carnegie born the son of a struggling handloom weaver and scotland. Andrew carnegie or andy to those close to him immigrated with his penniless family to pittsburgh back in eighteen forty eight when he was twelve years old. It was so broke and he had to get right to work but he quickly moved up from his father's world of textiles into the telegraph game. He excelled here so much. So that when. Tom scott decided he needed his own telegraph and assistant in eighteen fifty three. He offered the gig to the fair featured. Strong job seventeen year. Andy proved more than capable in the years. The followed in fact one time. When tom wasn't around and things got hectic andy even took it upon himself to issue orders in his boss's name in short andrew carnegie has more than shown his worth in after six years of working together. It'll be a real shame for tom. To part with his right hand man in understandably andy's quite nervous what will happen to him and his career if his mentor. Tom has to philly well. Tom's invited young scotsman over to talk about that very thing. Now a barrel chested barely over five foot tall twenty-four-year-old and enters and takes a seat across from tom in the latter's home. Tom tells him about his interview and impending promotion. That will require moving to philadelphia. There will be other changes to tom. Explains that mr. Ethnic lewis will be promoted to replace him. General superintendent of the railroad here. Now tuna andy realizes. His future is up in the air. You listened eagerly as tom continues now about yourself. Do you think you could manage the pittsburgh division. Is he kidding. Pittsburgh is a major division of the railroad. A boomtown with plenty of business. That was tom's job. When the two i met some pretty big shoes to fill. Then andy answers. I think icon. Well mr potts's is to be promoted to the transportation department in philadelphia. And i recommended you to the president as his successor. He agreed to give you a trial. What salary do you think you should have salary. What do i care for salary. I do not want. The salary i walked position is going to go back to the pittsburgh division in your former place you can make my salary just what you please any not. Give me any more than what. I'm getting now. You know. I received fifteen hundred dollars a year. When i was there. Mr potts is receiving eighteen. Hundred i think it would be right to start you at fifteen hundred dollars and after a while if you succeed you'll get the eighteen hundred. Would that be satisfactory. Oh it will. Tom just doubled andy salary. On december first. Eighteen fifty nine young scotsman is officially appointed superintendent of the pennsylvania. Railroad's pittsburgh division not bad for an immigrant whose family has struggled at the bottom of increasingly industrialized textile economy bands. Not done yet. In fact he's just getting started. Unbeknownst to andy his move to pittsburgh is going to put him in exactly the right place.

Power Grids Feel the Pressure of Intense Storms

"Hurricane ida crumpled a major transmission tower. That survived katrina sixteen years ago building infrastructure. That strong enough is hard when the target keeps moving because storms are getting stronger energy consultant alison silverstein says utilities and their regulators can take planning cues from murphy's law. We need to assume that everything possible that could go wrong is going to go wrong. Simultaneously and murphy is always gonna win. President biden's climate plan includes a much bigger role for electricity electric cars. For example cutting carbon footprint says easier with electricity from emission free sources like wind solar and nuclear. But even those have to stand up to extreme weather putting wires underground may seem obvious but engineering professor destiny. Knock at carnegie mellon university says that won't always work in hurricane country where you might have under grounded. The lines to protect them from wind putting them underground makes them more susceptible to flooding knock. Says it's never just one thing that's going to keep the lights. On energy experts. We interviewed agree on a few basic ideas though. They say the grid should be more decentralized so the whole thing doesn't shut down at once. More generation out in communities such as solar power would accomplish that but new orleans utility energy has resisted calls for just that to the frustration of local activists at mit engineering professors. Or up. a mean says not all the fixes are technical. He says power companies also need to become more agile and do more when responding to storms the fact that some utilities are not able to sort of respond immediately is also another kind of failure which is perhaps as drastic as the infrastructure. Failures is assuming outages will happen. Amin says utilities should focus more on dispatching generators even before a storm to make sure important facilities and vulnerable populations get electricity restored as soon as possible. All this cost money that usually ends up in utility bills. Congress is working on major funding through infrastructure bills. That could address some of these issues. There also focused on president. Biden's climate goals including zeroing out greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector by twenty thirty five.

"Today we're talking about four hundred percent over four years of coaching with none other than clay clark. And let's just be honest klay because fire nation likes success but they love super success breakdown. What you think the first step to achieving super successes. Well i think the first thing we have to recognize is the the harsh reality that ninety. Six percent of businesses fail according to inc magazine. That's not my opinion. That's magazine will tell you if you look up other statistics you're gonna find eight hundred. Ten small businesses failed forbes. Eight at ten nine hundred ten businesses. Fail dear research tonight folks. Look that up but the first you have to recognize that most people are going to fail by default. So you have to become an intentional person so step one you have to define what success looks like. I mean what does success look like for your faith your family finances your fitness your friendship and your fun and napoleon hill once wrote that a goal is a dream with a deadline napoleon hill the bestselling author of thinking grow rich. You know the personal printers for andrew carnegie. He said that he's a goal is a dream with a deadline. So ask yourself right now. You know i. I have in removing to a forty acre property. Moving to a new building. Moving there i have to ask ourselves what does a successful man cave look like. What does it look like. I'm being serious. I'm telling the listeners out there. This is true a successful man cape books like this three quarters of my beautiful house. My wife has to approve. Of which means that. I will not like it. Because it's going to be boozy transitional and whatever that is but if she's happy i'm happy but then we go to the man cave. This is my family. My man cave has to feel like a dive bar. I have to have rustic. Beat up floors. I've got to have live edge. Would i gotta have a urinal. These are things. That i need jail. These things. i have to have a forty seven foot waterslide but did extends from my waterfall in my backyard. What kind of a successful entrepreneur could possibly do life without a urinal a urinal it's an incredible By the way without having his own forty seven foot waterslide. I'm i'm a forty year old man. I need a forty seven foot waterslide. So but if by default i just met with builders and said well do whatever you think i probably would not have a forty-seven i probably would not have a urinal in my bathroom. My wife would probably not have the existence that she wants. And i would probably not have enough land that i can buy all the yaks llamas and chickens that i want but i want you accent llamas and somebody else listening to says you're sick. You're crazy. well. I might be crazy. I might be a modern billy madison. But the point is ladies and gentlemen you have to define. What are your goals for your faith your family your finances your fitness your friendship your fun and you have to ask yourself. How much does that cost per year.

Myanmar Fails To Stop Action Even as It Cracks Down on Protesters, Journalists

"1000 demonstrators against last month's military seizure of power in Myanmar emerged cautiously today under the streets of the country's second largest city. Those in the vanguard carrying homemade shields bearing images of the three thinkers salute the movement symbol of defiance. The protest at Mandalay took place even though security forces have shown little reluctance to use lethal force to break up crowds. Those who marched gathered for just a few minutes before dispersing to avoid a possible confrontation. With riot police. Another group made him mobile protests. Driving through the streets on motorbikes. The protesters have adapted their tactics and response to the escalating violence from security forces, including the firing of live ammunition at crowds. The government's crackdown has left more than 50 protesters dead. But his failed to slow the widespread protests against the February 1st coup that ousted the elected government of Aung San Suu Cheap. According to the Myanmar based Assistance Association for Political Prisoners, more than 1800 people have been arrested in connection with the coup. Dozens of journalists have been arrested, including CNN's awe of The Associated Press has been charged under a public order law that carries a penalty of after three years in prison. According to local news reports and social media and what has become a daily occurrence in Myanmar Protests. Marches were held today in cities and towns across the country. Their actions came after a dramatic night and Yang gone when thousands of residents broke the eight p.m. curfew to show support for a group of protesters who had been trapped by police in an enclave of streets. They came out of their homes, saying songs against the coup and banged pots, pans and other implements together partly in the hope of diverting police from the hunted. Protesters estimated two numbers 200 Witnesses said Several dozens of those who had such shelter in the city's song strong neighborhood were arrested, but others made their way home at dawn several hours after police withdrew from the area.

In the short term.

Those things can happen when you let the market dictate prices on a grid that's not connected to the rest of the country.

The grid operator is called ERCOT there like a toll road for the electricity system. Costas America teaches environmental engineering at Carnegie Mellon, he says in the February deep freeze, brasses Electric ran up bills many times higher than they normally be. The prices are allowed through the Texas Electricity system to rise when demand is really high, and supply is low. That's kind of the theory of all this the theory behind the largely deregulated market, a system that many are now questioning. David Spence teaches energy law of the University of Texas, he says. In fairness, I don't know that anyone ever anticipated an event like this when they were designing that system. Now, this seems like a black swan event in that sense, But a similar event did hit Texas 10 years ago, and lawmakers decided not to winterize Emily Groubert and George Attack says there's an opportunity again to rethink infrastructure more generally. I think we need to be really, really thoughtful about when it is actually logical to spend a little bit more money here to make sure that these systems actually do what we want them to do for the next several decades. Brasses Electric said before the freeze, it was financially robust. Its bankruptcy family could be an ominous sign.

These computers are programmers from making, you know, just creating all these email accounts yet And so that was that was the problem. And together we came up with the solution which was the thinking here is look Computer programs can get a million email accounts per day. Because well, computer in front do things very fast. So how about this? How about if we make sure that whatever is getting an email account is actually a human and not a computer program. Then we started thinking. Okay, well, how could we distinguish between human and computer on DH? That's where this this idea came came about. It's this idea of a capture where it's basically these distorted characters that you have to type whenever you're buying tickets on Ticketmaster or getting, you know an email account or stuff like that.

I'm Joel Rosenthal, president Carnegie counsel for ethics in international affairs. Both of us in the Carnegie family of institutions have a special affection for David. His biography of Andrew Carnegie, published in 2006. Was a life changing event for us. You're David's work. We've come to know Andrew Carnegie and all of his humanity and complexity. And there's one lesson from the book that really stayed with me. It has animated my work at the Carnegie counsel. And that is, as David would put it. Carnegie's cock eyed optimism. Was not entirely misplaced. For all the madness we see in the world. Progress based on reason and a can do spirit is indeed possible. That idea keeps going in this occasion gives me the opportunity to say thank you. In addition to the Carnegie biography, David's previous spokes include prizewinning biographies of Joseph P. Kennedy and William Randolph Hearst. Today we turned to David's latest book, The Portrait of Not one person. But the over one million displaced persons. Who emerged brutalized yet alive. On V E Day, April 1945 The last million is an epic story. It takes us right into the heart of Europe during and after World War two. It describes the movements of millions of people among shifting borders and general chaos, the chaos of that war and its aftermath. It describes life at the street level and politics in the highest reaches of government. Millions of people were displaced by World War two most known were those sent to concentration camps. But there were also migrant laborers, force laborers, collaborators, political prisoners and POW. When the war ended, many if not most displaced persons returned home. Yet, as the title suggests, a million did not. This book tells the story of their search. For a new home. So, David, Thanks for joining us and to kick it off. I have a simple question, Which is? How did you come to this story? How did you see the last million as a singular story to be told? As three kid had a lot to do with turning juts Extraordinary book Post board. And I had learned. Not to take The common sense view. Of historical events. As Unnecessarily truthful. Sometimes only partially truthful. Whenever Tony just book it begin clear to me much clear that you didn't before the wars don't end. With peace treaties with the cessation of hostilities, either with the soldiers going on war bleeds into post war. And the suffering for civilians who have been displaced by war continues unabated. In the cases, the last million For 3 to 5 years that they remained in Germany. In cares many behind barbed wire. 3 to 5 years. Let me emphasize after the day. Let's talk about the million who remain Um, and you talk about the one million into Germany. Can you give us a little bit of information about who these people were and who went willingly? And who did? Carnegie Council President Joel Rosen? Yeah, there were three different screens. Into Germany during the war. The largest was the stream for me. You're mostly from Poland and the Ukraine. Thes were in large part adolescents and young men and women. Who grabbed from their homes forced onto trucks and trains. Into Germany. Hitler and the third right leadership knew from the very beginning that the only possible way to save millions of soldiers to the eastern front. Wass to replace them with millions more. Forced in slave laborers from the east. That was the first group and they began arriving in 1940 1941 and continue to arrive through the end of the war. The second stream.

In some cases, it meant joining of awfulness s division when it became clear that the Red Army Was on its march and would soon awry in the Baltic states and in the Ukraine.

"You heard of the book? And his connection. Tio Andrew Carnegie. What is it about? These extraordinary men. That make us Look back and and And see how Mindset how we think Has such Power. In what we do in life and joining us today is the editor. Of No hope Napoleon Hill's think and grow rich. James Whitaker. And James. It is such a pleasure. You know, The story of Napoleon Hill is so fascinating and I just love this story. Welcome to the program. Yeah, thank you so much for having me It's an incredible story. And I think in the time that we're in now we're experiencing so much division and so much negativity that it's more important than ever to have these inspiring stories that remind us that we have everything we need to succeed already within us. Absolutely. And you talk about self discipline. You talk about learning from defeat and the golden rule and explained to everybody. What makes Napoleon Hill so amazing in his life if you could just give us a real quick thumbnail sketch. All the polling Hill and Andrew Carnegie's lives were inextricably linked while they were alive and their legacies inextricably linked as well. Napoleon Hill with the young reporter there was tasked with interviewing Andrew Carnegie who arrived in the US with nothing and basically became one of the wealthiest people in the history of the world, but also one of the biggest philanthropists of old Tong. So Andrew Carnegie's money Has created more than 6000 libraries around the world and on a whole host of other things, And the reason Kana G and Hill is so iconic because none of the wealth they were able to accumulate individually or even their philanthropic activities. It was Maura around the gift that they gave people with the ability to help themselves and I have done that through. Obviously, through the books like thinking Guy Rich, which was published in 1937, My book thinking Driving the Legacy continues these lessons that one came out in 28 teams, and I knew one Andrew Carnegie's mental Donna Ma hot off the presses. That one continues his legacy, too. Wonderful, you know. John Napoleon Hill. Tells many stories. He was a storyteller. And what I love about the stories. I said, you know, people go from having nothing. To all of a sudden. Having it all. Absolutely. I mean these these stories and and lessons of through the believe yeah, and perseverance and You know absolutely yeah, Some of the people that we mentioned in this book people like Jessica Cox, who was the world's first armless pilot, she was born without arms and ended up becoming a pilot. I mean, Incredible story. We've got people like Jim Stovall, who at the age of 18 went totally and permanently blind, and he went on to become the author of 30 best selling books. And the founder of the narrative television network. I mean, the examples included within this book proves that whatever success you want to achieve is absolutely possible. You just need the right plan and the ability to put 1 ft in front of the other. I think that I've been saying right along during this pandemic that this is an opportunity for everyone. To reinvent themselves to find a new voice, too. You look at what's really inside you that has been calling you and you put it on Hold. Now is the time to go out and grab it. Oh, that's such a good It's such a good lesson. I think when the pandemic hit earlier in the year, a lot of people were caught on the back foot, and it was easy to sit there and and complain about what they had or what they didn't have. And if we took that exact same amount of energy that we used to complain about our present circumstances, literally the exact same amount of energy and redirect that towards constructively creating the circumstances that we want. We would stand ourselves with how quickly we would get their companies that have been created in the lost seven months. And individuals who have done some amazing things because I have being proactive. They've got on the front foot and I've thought about one of the opportunities that are created out of this situation and what is in the situation, which is one of the best lessons in learning from defeat. One of the women in our neighborhood. Was making the sweet little bows and she kind of semi retired. And then she said, G. You know, you can't find any decent masks around. So she started making masks and one of the girls in the post office. She gave her the mask and G. Where'd you get that Mass? Cheryl and you know Well, Theresa mated, and that's how it kind of grew and grew and grew. I'm not kidding. It is true. It's a great little story. Yeah, in Los Angeles. Where are they Might. My accent is from Australia originally, But in l A where I live. There's a lot of the street vendors who rather than selling fruit. Now they're selling mosques. And I think they're doing pretty well. So being resourceful enough. Because essentially everyone's worried about job security at the moment, But if you are very clear on audience who you like to help and you're clear on the problems they face and the urgent problems, then all you need to do is get good at creating solutions that solved their most urgent problems, and then you never need to worry about an employer ever again. No, Never. I thinkit's a great time to be an entrepreneur. It's a great time to go out and grab what it is that you want And when you're thinking about how am I going to do it? This is exactly where James Whitaker comes in. Because your your take on the masters of Carnegie and Napoleon are as brilliant and you can pick Pick up any of the books. Your Your new book is out. And, of course, if you want the real story of Napoleon Hill thinking, grow rich, the legacy that's wonderful. That's a wonderful book. I loved that book. By the way, James But.

"To the lord is he speaking to you then I I I am very appreciative of the fact that he still does I was I was at the Carnegie Hall Getty concert last night and they did this three song package in the bleak midwinter and then in Christ alone starts very tender just the piano and Kristen singing and goes to the big big dramatic conclusion and then they jump into joy to the world as kind of the the finality and you kind of seeing through the whole theology of who Jesus is in those three songs and I was I was just sitting there taking all of the sand listening to the lyrics to the words and I was so moved I just began to weep in my in my chair is very it was very this is very unusual thing I felt like it was it was god saying I have a band in New York I haven't I haven't left you get you you guys think that you know it's a godless place but right here in the center of Manhattan three thousand Christians are are singing with all their heart about how Christ is superior and what he's going to do and I was really moved by that and and I'm hoping friend that the you live your life in a rhythm that god can tap you on the shoulder when he needs to and say Hey I've cut the mission for you and I want you to pay attention to what is happening here some of you have and that's why there are now one hundred ninety three children person by person that have been spoken for that have been cared for that will be cured of the biblical ancient disease called leprosy that still exists a bacterial infection but can be cured for thirty dollars and because of you there a hundred ninety three children that if we get to them early enough will not even ever show the signs that they had it even though they've been identified is is having so for those of you that have helped us with that hundred and ninety three kids I just that's almost two full villages of children now that means of the five hundred twenty critical needs children that we had when we started this effort that there are three hundred and twenty seven names that have not been spoken for three hundred and twenty seven children that don't have the cure for the leprosy that they have and we already know who they are and whether at American leprosy mission already has them identified this is just a matter of us getting the cure to and across all of thirty dollars to do that secure one child of leprosy thirty dollars by the way when you cure the child the family the child and sometimes the extended family sometimes the neighborhood sometimes the community sometimes the entire village wants to know why we felt it was important enough to cure that child where that goodness come from who are these Christians in America and what are they believe what they about and so when a child is cured it opens the door for the gospel to be shared explained explicitly and for a whole swaths of different communities to come to faith so the fact that you've done that for one hundred ninety three kids in just the last few days is really remarkable now there is a there's a need for the remaining three hundred twenty seven and that's what we need I would that's what I want you to focus on right now because I was doing some math and I was thinking about this and I thought you know this isn't this is a very hard if there were twenty seven families in the entire tristate area listening to chemical right now there were twenty seven families that took the thirty dollar month challenge for only one year so once a month you get your credit card gets doing for thirty dollars but every time it gets dean for thirty dollars you you current other child so over the next twelve months if you have a one time gift of three sixty or if you spread it out you know month by month we'll need twenty seven families to take that challenge and to say yeah we we care about these children we we don't want them to have leprosy with all of their fingers to fall off and then to get cuts on the bottom of her feet and factions and die painful deaths because we didn't do thirty dollars I think I've made mention of this the other day but I don't I don't know what your weekend tradition is Saturdays are kind of busy at the Michael house because we have two boys that take taekwondo and a daughter that takes ballet and the weekends are sometimes loaded with either lessons or running around sometimes competitions and and other things and it just gets kind of hairy so every now and then good old dad says Hey instead of going back home let's just let's just hit the Wendy's drive through and I know that for thirty eight dollars and forty three cents I can get three kids meals I get the lovely bridal chicken sandwiches she likes I give myself a salad and we as a family of five can eat and be satiated for that one meal from the Wendy's drive through for thirty eight dollars but for thirty dollars for eight dollars less than that we could give the child a brand new life so I've I've talked to the tech one doors there said Hey what if we get a what if we cut out one when these a month we we just gonna make some PBJ or some Turkey and cheese whatever and we just we just have a quiet lunch around the table but Ince instead of that we can then send that thirty dollars to cure a child forever you know how long it takes the local kids to put two and two together that why why are we doing that now so here we are there twenty seven families it would just take that challenge just one time a month the thirty dollar doing to your credit card but it's.
