"Okay, you in the book, I don't know if you say this. And the geography of nowhere, but what it might take away was that once upon a time, we had small towns. And in the small towns, the town elders, they cared about creating there'd be a green and there'd be a beautiful bank building. For urban design, there was based on the human body and human scale. And once we threw that in the garbage with in the traffic engineers became literally in charge of all the dimensions of how we lived and the deployment of all of the things on the landscape, then we lost all of that knowledge, all that vocabulary, and we started making a huge number of mistakes. And we produced environments that just destroyed people's minds. And now we can see the result of it. You know, we're living in a politically psychotic nation now. After about 70 years of that, there's no question about that. I think about, I mean, again, I'm just trying to process this for my audience a little bit, but I remember when I was reading your book, I started thinking about this, I thought everywhere I looked, this is true. There were downtowns that were beautiful and Danbury, Connecticut, where I grew up. It had a downtown, and it had a Civil War monument. And it had some beautiful buildings, and people would go there from wherever they lived, and they would do business and stuff. And over time, the energy and the life and whatever kind of got sucked out of the downtown and they would create a mall or strip malls or whatever. And so the downtown fell into, this is my favorite gym kunstler word, decrepitude. Well, I didn't invent it. I know, but you're the one that popularized it in my mind. All right. Well, all of that is true, but it's self evident. I mean, it obviously happened. The real question is, what were the effects of it? And one of the principle effects was that it went a long way to destroying the development of children. Who no longer were able to work out their personal sovereignty issues. Their management of their own bodies and time and space. There was a really good podcast with Coleman Hughes and Jonathan haidt about two weeks ago. And Jonathan hate made the observation that because children learn so much from the act of wayfinding in their play when they're deprived of that in an environment where they can only use with the assistance of the family chauffeur, mom, then they no longer do any wayfinding in their lives. And it later on in their adult adolescent and adult lives, they can't find their way. This is our shortest segment. We'll be right back. I'm here with James Howard kunstler. Jim, you're making this point that and again, you know this stuff so well that I don't want my audience to miss it. You grew up at a time. I mean, it's not when we watch the little rascals, the art game comedy, the kids are just running all over, getting into adventures by themselves and stuff like that. You and even I in the 70s grew up at a time when kids could just wander and figure things out. Well, I could in my environment, which was Manhattan. I grew up in Manhattan. I didn't like it all that much because, frankly, I would have preferred to be out bass fishing and riding motorcycles. But I was completely unsupervised, nobody ever asked me where I was going or suggested it would be a problem. I was going up to Yankee Stadium by myself, you know, when I was 9 years old and coming home, weren't you shot and killed at the time. I was still here. Get out. But I mean, that's the point, right? Is adults somehow, part of this has to do with the fact that the fabric of the culture, there were other adults out there. So it wasn't likely. I happened to live in two different environments in my early childhood. I was in the suburbs from age 5 to 8, then my parents got a divorce, and I moved into Manhattan. But those years of 5 to 8 in the suburbs, that's probably the best time to be a kid in the suburbs because you don't need to intersect with much of a dull life. You know, you don't need to be in any kind of a town environment. All you're doing is playing flies up and cops and robbers. And that's all. But once you get to a certain point beyond that, you need other civic encounters. And so we've got three or four generations of kids who never had that. And they've now raised kids who never had that. And we have a society full of people who seem to be absolutely anchorless..

"Their monument and Civil War monuments And they said within the next week they may reach out and ask for assistance And if possible we'll give it that's two guys from the 3% security force speaking on July 2nd 2020 One week later there was in fact a Black Lives Matter protest at the Civil War monument but we couldn't verify that three percenters actually showed up When we contacted them last year the 3% security force denied they had contact with the police and the Douglas county sheriff's department did not respond to our request for comment The third example of alleged coordination between armed vigilantes and local police actually reveals a course of action for reducing violence in the future It involves the Michigan Home Guard a militia that made national news last May when it defended Carl manke a barbershop owner who defied state lockdown measures by reopening his business Members of the Michigan militia say they will take action to keep menke from going to jail We are willing to stand in front of that door and lock the entrance So the police will have no entry there today A few weeks after that incident word began to spread that there was an upcoming Black Lives Matter protest in the works A couple local politicians and at least a couple armed militias including the Michigan Home Guard were preparing to attend Then Livingston county sheriff Michael Murphy posted this video to his department's Facebook crew So here's the deal I've had personal conversation with rob from two a Mike detmer and former share of bob is at I asked both to stand down to not show up tomorrow Let me tell you a little story Back in the mid 90s there was a KKK rally held on the steps of the old courthouse That was the biggest non event that this county has ever seen The community really banded together and had other activities to do a handful of people maybe 20 at the most showed up for the KKK to do their thing They realized that they didn't get the reaction that they were looking for They packed up and left So it was a beautiful thing That said my plea is if you just stay away there's no stage for anybody to make this thing go sideways That's fascinating Isn't that fascinating I hadn't seen that I think it's a little problematic to compare the KKK to Black Lives Matter protesters But I understand the point that he was trying to make which is that showing up in force in response to something could have the effect of pouring gasoline on the fire Yeah in Michigan has an extensive history with right-wing militias referring to these militia as the two a community is laundering that history through something that is deemed a little bit more politically neutral A constitutional amendment That's a good point And as I listened to the Michigan Home Guard on zello kind of making sense of the message from the sheriff there was some frustration in anger and I would also say confusion So Livingston county fair up there requested Michigan Home Guard and other vetted militia groups to come and help him with extra security and then later came out publicly and said he did not do that He does not want any two way people there and then stay away There was a rumor that spread in the Michigan home card zello group that even after he made that video he secretly said no Michigan Home Guard should come No I still want you there I just want you to stand back and make sure nobody sees you You're more or less I still want them to come I basically just want them to keep a low profile Well that's not shady at all Pardon me but that's bull and you know he should have just kept his mouth shut The next day the sheriff denied this rumor on Facebook And again there's a lot about what happened behind the scenes that we couldn't verify But by addressing the malicious publicly asking these groups not to show up the sheriff seemed to at least annoy them to the point that they decided not to go Yeah RLT gave us an official stand down on the Livingston thing Sheriff Michael Murphy denied that he was in contact with the militia and the Michigan Home Guard did not respond to our requests for comment when we reached out to them last fall We couldn't get a complete picture of what happened in any of these examples But the tapes demonstrate that local law enforcement wield a ton of influence over local militia activity The police may either ignore condone invite it or effectively tamp it down Social media companies face a similar choice In the summer of 2020 Facebook deleted thousands of militia pages Twitter also booted a bunch of militia accounts as did Discord a smaller app that had long incubated far right groups We were very concerned about Discord Joan Donovan During the rise of the alt right because Discord was a minor app and it really wasn't able to understand enough about what was happening on its platform Because they would see oh you know it's just 13 people And that ends up being like Adam often A group of people that are coordinating violence in the name of white supremacy Exactly And so zello has to have a procedure and a policy and an enforcement mechanisms where they do not tolerate this kind of behavior Unless it's the business model you'd think it would be hard for zello corporate to miss what was happening on their own app If Hampton and I alone could locate 200 far right groups ranging from oath keepers to straight up Nazis According to Zelda's own terms of service the app can remove anything that quote represents promotion of celebration with violent extremist ideologies groups and tactics In the fall of 2020 when we were doing this research we reached out to the company to ask how it was enforcing its terms of service In a written statement zello told us that the company quote allows speech protected by the U.S. Constitution and law therefore zello does not permit distribution of content designed to incite violence For the full response go to on the media dot.

"Only Black Lives Matter protest at the south Lake mall over the summer? Yeah. I think that that was the only one. She did not see very many police officers there and she did not see any militia guys there. If this did happen, then the police and the militia were out of sight off to the side. It's very common for malicious to either get on roofs or go around corners. Yeah. And just be staged nearby. There was a Black Lives Matter protest here in Atlanta back in 2016 that I attended and as I was leaving and took a wrong turn in the parking garage and ended up on the roof. And two spaces over there was a Jeep with four men with rifles in their hands looking out over the protests. There's a lot of work that happens that isn't super visible. It's worth noting too that zello is just one app that militias used for organizing. I didn't have access to their communication on say telegram or Facebook chat. After we aired this piece in October 2020, the leader of the Georgia 3% martyrs told Robin Kemp of the Clayton Crescent that four men from his militia did attend that protest, but without its permission. After that event, he said he kicked them out. The morrow police department did not respond to our request for comment. A month after the moral protest, I caught wind of another potential police militia relationship in Georgia. I got word from Douglas county sheriff's department of day that they're supposed to have a protest in Douglas county or their monument and Civil War monuments. And they said, within the next week, they may reach out and ask for assistance. And if possible, we'll give it that's two guys from the 3% security force speaking on July 2nd, 2020. One week later, there was in fact a Black Lives Matter protest at the Civil War monument, but we couldn't verify that three percenters actually showed up. When we contacted them last year, the 3% security force denied they had contact with the police and the Douglas county sheriff's department did not respond to our request for comment. The third example of alleged coordination between armed vigilantes and local police actually reveals a course of action for reducing violence in the future.

They realized that they didn't get the reaction that they were looking for. They packed up and left. So it was a beautiful thing. That said, my plea is, if you just stay away, there's no stage for anybody to make this thing go sideways. That's fascinating. Isn't that fascinating? I hadn't seen that.

During the rise of the alt right because Discord was a minor app and it really wasn't able to understand enough about what was happening on its platform. Because they would see, oh, you know, it's just 13 people. And that ends up being Adam often. A group of people that are coordinating violence in the name of white supremacy. Exactly.

In a written statement, zello told us that the company quote allows speech protected by the U.S. Constitution and law, therefore zello does not permit distribution of content designed to incite violence. For the full response go to on the media dot org. Late in our reporting process that year, we spoke with an employee at Zillow, who asked to remain anonymous. The employee sent us a company-wide email from June 2020 that detailed some of this militia and white supremacist activity on the app. The employee said that in a subsequent company-wide email, zello CEO Bill Moore said, essentially, that because the platform was not legally responsible for any harm caused by those far right groups, it would not kick them off the site. Nor would zello implement new moderation practices to deter this type of organizing in the future. From what I could tell, the most concrete action to come out of that summertime meeting was to de index far right groups from search engines, which means when you Google zello 3% or zello Nazi, those channels don't show up, but they still exist. And you could still find them on Zillow. They just became harder to find by people like us. In October 2020, when I filed this story, there was something about the way the militias were talking about the role as protectors who would give their lives for the cause. Not to mention the amount of weapons these guys seem to have. It all seemed like a toxic brew just waiting to boil over. Of course, we didn't know exactly what would happen just a few months later. But among the community of experts we were talking to, there was an inkling of what was to come. This is how I ended the story in October. Quote, from now until November 3rd, at least, we'll be concerned about the potential for violence around the election. No one knows the answer, but too much blood has been shed already for any police department or online platform.

"Ask anyone today about politics and they'll long wistfully for a simpler time. A time when senators, Congress people and even presidents were more civilized in their disagreements. But the fact is, the political landscape has always been a hotbed of shady campaign tactics, and even shadier players. In 1868, the Detroit free press published heinous insults about presidential candidate Ulysses S. Grant. He was described as and I, quote, a drunkard, a man of vile habits, and my favorites, as brainless as his saddle. Lewis Cass isn't a name most people know today, but in 1848, he ran against Zachary Taylor for president of the United States. He also got on the wrong side of a newspaper magnate named Horace Greeley, owner of the New York tribune. In fact, Greeley once referred to the democratic candidate as that pot bellied mutton headed cucumber sold casts. Suffice it to say, cast did not fare well in the election. But one man put all others to shame when it came to outlandish political behavior. We might look back on his actions today as reason for disqualification. But if anything they only made him more popular. His name was Dan sickles, born in New York City in 1819. He was raised by his mother and father who worked as a patent lawyer and politician. It's no wonder Dan followed in his footsteps later in life, earning a law degree and getting himself elected to the New York State assembly in 1847. It was around this time when sickles questionable behavior started to gain him notoriety. He joined up with tammany hall, a cutthroat political organization that had control New York for decades. Though he was considered an ally, there were a few times when he found himself on the receiving end of their wrath. Once he was giving a speech when a gang of rivals physically removed him from the stage and threw him down a spiral staircase. On another occasion he fled through an open window and down a fire escape to get away from their assault. When he was 32 years old, sickles married a girl named Teresa bagioli, who was no more than 15 at the time. Both her family and sickles protested to their nuptials, but it didn't matter. The two were we D and the assemblyman continued to work his way up the New York political ladder. After a series of positions in both New York and London, sickles return home in 1856 and was elected to the New York State Senate. Now, while he was pursuing his career, the newly elected senator was also pursuing extracurricular activities outside of his marriage. The Kanye got him censured by the New York State assembly around 1859. However, even though sickles was allowed to cavort with whoever he saw fit, that didn't mean his wife was afforded the same luxuries. He found out that she was having an affair with another man and confronted her lover in broad daylight. Sickles shot him dead. The man he killed happened to be Philip Barton key the second, U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia and the son of national anthem composer Francis Scott Key. Sickles turned himself in and hired a team of lawyers for his defense. It took over two weeks of testimony, but in the end, sickles was acquitted. He submitted a plea of temporary insanity for the first time in the history of the U.S. court system. The jury believed him. Rather than run for reelection in the Senate, sickles sought to rehabilitate his image by building up an army of volunteer soldiers in New York. The Civil War had just started. And the union was in need of recruits. His efforts earned him the rank of colonel, despite having no military background whatsoever. He eventually graduated to Brigadier general and his conduct throughout most of the war, earned him high marks. For one, sickles never turned over the runaway slaves who found their way to his camp. In fact, he employed a lot of them to work as servants. The men who were able to fight were trained as soldiers. But he was also a man who hated to be told what to do. During the battle of Gettysburg, for example, he defied a direct order from his commander to hold his current position. He instead sought higher ground. His cavalier nature nearly led to defeat for the Union Army and perhaps worse at cost him his leg, which was destroyed by a cannonball and had to be amputated. Sickles donated the shattered bone from his leg to the army medical museum in Washington, D.C.. He even visited at each year on the anniversary of the battle, sometimes bringing his dates there to see it. After the war, he returned to New York and led the committee on creating the city's most iconic park, Central Park. Post war sickles, however, might have been even more brazen than his younger self. In 1869, he took a position as U.S. ambassador to Spain, where he and queen Isabel the second began a tour at affair, one that ended with sickles marrying one of her attendants instead. The whole ordeal, but to his eventual resignation from the position. And finally, in 1912, he was arrested yet again. Not for killing anyone this time. He'd been accused of stealing almost $30,000 from a Civil War monuments commissioned fund that he had been put in charge of. And just as he'd done with his murder trial 50 years earlier, sickles got away, Scot free. He had apparently built up enough goodwill with friends and supporters to have the money paid back in full. Sickles died two years later in New York City at the age of 94. For a man who survived being tossed down a flight of stairs, tried for murder and losing his leg to a cannonball, he survived much longer than most of his generation. As the artist David Hockney once said, I prefer living in color. Well, few people live more colorfully, than Daniel E sickles. I hope you've enjoyed today's guided tour of the cabinet of curiosities.

"If i'm writing these nature plays like who were the naturalists that i might want to write about and as a gray and louis agassi came up right away and then try to understand. What's their argument about. Is it about you know. Is it about evolution. In scientific argument. That already feels settled right. But then i started just doing basic research like there's a lot of things named for these guys and how's that feel and then i remembered them rea- baldwin school renaming like. Oh how does louis agassi feel about that. Headstones are one thing. But i have streets an entire neighborhood schools. The school is that what this is. all about. Once thing has a name it should not be changed. We shouldn't look up in the sky at night and say oh. There's moore's no wait that's the god of war. Let's rename it. Something more peaceful and because these are men in the nineteenth century who had a great amount of ego tied up into things being named that was a big part of the nineteenth century of classifying things naming things. So what does it feel like when we get to that moment where the present has making different decisions and there was this kind of fascinating question that the the actors asked the audience. Basically at the end of that play the widow says he was a good man and one of the other characters says was he. And there's no real answer to that. This is a real person with real challenges. Who did real research that advanced science in some ways but also resulted in some pretty concerning events as a society. Right this minute. We're dealing with some big questions around the naming of things whether it's civil war monuments or things around agassi in people with troubling racist past or who are great misogynists and and we're being forced to confront as other generations have before us. It's not unique to us. You know when something has a name. How long does it get to have. That name is something named effort forever. Or what does it mean in the present when we now know something about the person it was named after it's named after person you can't unknow that so when once you know something that is now brought to you in the present you have to make a decision so something can be named something for a long time. And maybe it's just inertia inertia. It doesn't matter but once you know something. Your society has now made a choice. We either keep it and that says something about it or we say we. There are plenty of other things to name people to name a school after. Let's make a different choice and it's a it's a consensus and so it's not easy and there's big arguments in this play definitely. I've already had big arguments about this with people. I want to ask you quickly about a a line that jumped out of the the fourth. Play the play about the birds or the bird watchers One of your characters says i'm just out in the world trying to pay attention and when i do it makes sense. I found that really powerful. Because i think there is a real power in nature and and in going back to nature as a species Can you talk a little bit about that connection with the natural world. I feel that way very much myself. And i think that play. Was channeling a lot of how i feel being here out in the world and thinking about just like even going on the nature walks with the burgers the mushroom guys And just like taking the time to realize that we're part of a greater whole and just to slow down for second and pay attention around. You suddenly changes the whole vibe. In this world our modern world can be so frenetic and feel scary and we don't know what to make of it and sometimes you just need to look at your feet and there's a mushroom they're like. oh okay things are growing..

"War monuments. And they said within the next week, they may reach out and ask for assistance. And if possible, we'll give it. That's two guys from the 3% security Force. Speaking on July 2nd 2021 week later, there was, in fact, a black lives matter. Protests at the Civil War monument. But we couldn't verify that three percenters actually showed up when we contacted them. Last year, the 3% security force denied they had contact with the police and the Douglas County Sheriff's Department did not respond to our request for comment. The third example of alleged coordination between armed vigilantes and local police actually reveals a course of action for reducing violence in the future. It involves the Michigan Home Guard militia that made national news last May when it defended Karl Monkey, a barbershop owner who defied state lockdown measures by reopening his business. Members of the Michigan militia say they will take action to keep monkey from going to jail. We are willing to stand in front of that door and block the entrance. So the police will have no entry there today. A few weeks after that incident, word began to spread that there was an upcoming black lives matter. Protests in the works, a couple local politicians and at least a couple armed militias, including the Michigan Home guard, were preparing to attend. Then Livingston County Sheriff Michael Murphy posted this video to his department's Facebook group. So here's the deal. I've had personal conversation with Rob from to a mic Dittmer and former sheriff Bob is at I asked both to stand down to not show up tomorrow. Let me tell you a little story. Back in the mid nineties, there was a KKK rally held on the steps of the old courthouse. That was the biggest non event that this county has ever seen. The community really banded together and had other activities to do. Handful of people maybe 20 at the most showed up for the K K K to do their thing. They realized that they didn't get the reaction that they were looking for. They packed up and left, So it was a beautiful thing. That said. My plea is if you just stay away. There's no stage for anybody to make this thing. Go see language was fascinating. Isn't that fascinating? I hadn't seen that. I think it's a little problematic to like. Compare the KKK to black lives matter Protesters, but I understand the point that he was trying to make, which is that showing up in force in response to something could have the effect of pouring gasoline on the fire. And Michigan has an extensive history with right wing militias, referring to these militia as the to a community is laundering that history through Something that is deemed a little bit more politically neutral. A constitutional amendment. That's a good point. And as I listen to the Michigan home guard on Zillow kind of making sense. Of the message from the sheriff. There was some frustration and anger and I would also say confusion. So live instant county sheriff there requested Michigan Home garden, other vetted militia groups to come and help him with extra security and then later came out. Publicly and said he did not do that. He does not want any to a people there and then stay away. There was a rumor that spread in the Michigan home card Zella group that even after he made that video He secretly said no Michigan Home guard should come. I still want you there. I just want you to stand back and make sure nobody sees you more or less. I still want them to come. I basically just want them to keep a low profile. Well, that's not shady at all. Pardon me, but that's bullshit. And, uh, You know, he should have just kept his mouth shut. The next day, The sheriff denied this rumor on Facebook and again. There's a lot about what happened behind the scenes that we couldn't verify, but by addressing the malicious publicly asking these groups not to show up. The sheriff seemed to at least annoy them to the point that they decided not to go. Yeah, our lt gave us an official stand down. The Livingston thing. Sheriff Michael Murphy denied that he was in contact with the militia in the Michigan Home Guard did not respond to our request for comment when we reached out to them last fall We couldn't get a complete picture of what happened in any of these examples, But the tapes demonstrate that local law enforcement wield a ton of influence over local militia activity. The police may either ignore, condone, invited or effectively tamp it down. Social media companies face a similar choice. Last summer, Facebook deleted thousands of militia pages. Twitter also booted a bunch of militia accounts, as did discord, a smaller app that had long incubated far right groups. We were very concerned about discord Joan Donovan during the rise of the alt right because Discord was a minor app. And it really wasn't able to understand enough about what was happening on its platform because they would see Oh, you know, it's just 13 people. And that ends up being like Adam Waff. Right? It was a a group of people that are coordinating violence in the name of white supremacy. Exactly, And so yellow has to have a procedure and a policy and enforcement mechanisms where they do not tolerate this kind of behavior. Unless it's the business model. You'd think it would be hard for Selo corporate to miss what was happening on their own app If Hampton and I alone could locate 200 far right groups ranging from oath keepers to straight up Nazis, according to Zillow's own terms of service. The APP can remove anything. That quote represents promotion of celebration with violent extremist ideologies, groups and tactics. Last fall. When we were doing this research, we reached out to the company to ask how it was enforcing its terms of service. In a written statement, Zeller told us that the company quote allows speech protected by the U. S Constitution and law. Therefore, Zell Oh, does not permit distribution of content designed to incite violence..

"There at Southlake Mall, and she sent me audio of the scene. She walked with the protesters about 150 of them almost All African American people who are marching. There was no violence or vandalism or anything like that. It was like a very joyful, family oriented feeling people assembling for the march in the parking lot of the shopping mall on the weekend. And it's time that we speak up. We stand up and we let the world know that blacks lives another Was this. Like the only black lives matter. Protests at the South Lake Maule over the summer? Yes, I think that that was the only one. She did not see very many police officers there and she did not see any militia guys there. If this did happen, then the police and the militia were out of sight off to the side. It's very common for militias to either get on roofs or go around corners and just be staged nearby. There was a black lives matter. Protests here in Atlanta back in 2016 that I attended and as I was leaving and took a wrong turn and parking garage. And ended up on the on the roof. And two spaces over there was a jeep with four men with rifles in their hands looking out over the protest. There's a lot of work that happens that isn't super visible. It's worth noting, too, that Zillow is just one app that militias used for organizing. Didn't have access to their communication on, say, Telegram or Facebook chat. After we aired this piece In October, the leader of the Georgia 3% Martyrs told Robyn Kemp of the Clayton Crescent that four men from his militia did attend that protest, but without his permission. After that event, he said, he kicked them out. The Morrow Police Department did not respond to our request for comment. Month after the Murrow protest, I caught wind of another potential police militia relationship in Georgia. I got word from Douglas County Sheriff's Department today that they're supposed to have a protest in Douglas County. Over there, monument and civil war monuments.

The author further states to discover the message of these monuments. We have to try to see them through the eyes of the people who built them. And indeed, Marylanders had experienced the greatest crushing of civil liberties against the free state. When the union that has ever occurred the U. S Constitution, with all of its civil protections was unlawfully taken from Maryland citizens. Maryland was forcibly occupied against her will by troops of other states. Marylanders were brutalized by this occupation, with thousands of citizens imprisoned without trial. Executions conducted without due process of civil law. Seizure and confiscation of private property without recourse. There were hundreds of documented rapes and sexual assault against Maryland women by occupying forces. Not so bad. The federal troops were sent to Talbot County, surround the Taliban county court jails and beat and imprisoned a circuit court judge for his attempt to provide Talbot citizens. Their constitutional protections. Members of the Maryland Legislature were arrested and imprisoned because they protested the Congress and the president over the unlawful arrest of Maryland citizens.
