"There we go. Wonderful scenes there, Jan, great stuff for Australia, hey. Great stuff for them. And at the time there was 4 o'clock in the morning, I think in Melbourne, where we saw some of the jubilation, some half of the Australian wouldn't have seen the game waking up to a breakfast, knowing that they are in the next stage, but I don't think it's a big, big shock that is Dennis team is out sorry, Frank. I don't think you haven't done your homework because first of all, first of all coming from coming from a Norwegian, you know, I have that, exactly. That's my neighbor. But if you see they have 7 or 8 strikers that have scored 16 goals among them, 7.

The Selfishness of Rob Portman

"All right, we do continue now. 34 minutes past the hour bob brand sitting in for Dennis here in Cleveland, Ohio. I want to trash my senator for a moment. 'cause he deserves it. Rob Portman is everything that's wrong with his bill, rob Portman is everything that's wrong with the attack on the First Amendment. Rob Portman is everything that's wrong with the United States Senate as a whole, I think. Anybody who makes a pledge and a promise to constituents in return for their votes. Anybody who says he believes in traditional marriage between one man and one woman. Anybody who says I will govern and I will make votes in the United States Senate along those beliefs. Who then turns around and flips it upside down 180° because his kid tells him he's gay. If someone that has no business being in government, thankfully rob Portman is on his way out of government. He chose not to run for reelection, JD Vance is going to be our next senator in his seat. And I look forward to much, much better from JD Vance and I got from rob Portman. Rob Portman proved to be selfish. He put his families, concern above that of the constitution, and while I understand that as a father, I do. He didn't take an oath to his son, he took an oath to uphold the constitution. And the constitution includes the Bill of Rights, it includes the First Amendment that are going to be shredded.

"Hey Ron, it's bob and for Denis go right ahead, sir. How you doing? Good. What's on your mind? Police car in Chicago that have the rainbow flag. Why shouldn't they be allowed to display it across or star David on the car? That's a very good question. How do you think that would go over in a place like Chicago? Well, especially with this mayor, but. Case is about those the ten commandments you would think it would be easy to knock that down. Yeah. You would think so, but you know what? This is woke ism. We're fighting something that is bigger and more powerful than religion. And in fact, maybe I should probably amend that statement a little bit and thank you for the call run. Woke ism is a religion to these nuts. And you can not dare challenge them. If you take that down, you are committing an act of bigotry that is punishable by prison in their mind. So it's a great point. It's a great point. We'll never get equal equal time on that issue. Bob Francis for Dennis prager right back. Anyone who wants to protect America should also want to protect Israel. Ambassador Robert O'Brien, former national security adviser in the Trump administration, explains exactly why. See the new video at prager U dot com where we teach. What should be? The patience is raining is the center. 26 minutes before the top of the hour, then we continue on the Dennis prager show, bob Brant sitting in for Dennis live in Cleveland, Ohio, the relief factor dot com studios of a.m. 1420, the answer. So just I saw something on Twitter during the break. Follow me on Twitter if you would like. I've always write radio, just search for always right radio. That is my nickname, the handle is at France on air FR a and T. Three and a half years ago, I quit Twitter with about 40 42,000 or so followers. I wasn't very active on it all the time, but I had a really good following and enjoyed it for the time that I spent on it. I quit it when I started seeing my tweets that would reach two, 300 responses, suddenly reaching 5 or 6 people, same types of tweets. I knew the shadow bands were on that I started getting suspended, then I started getting warned, and I was done. I left because I was tired of actually being censored because who wouldn't, right? Now they be a lot is running the show, and he has restored so many accounts and he has allowed people to come back in and actually speak freely, but legally, by the way, and I part matters. I'm back on, but I've got like 5500 people now, so I'm going to try to rebuild that. Up to where it was and maybe even exceed that Dennis for comparison's sake has 390,000 or something like that. Followers on there. But if you'd like to follow me there, do so find me and always write radio or France on air. Anyway, I was reading a tweet during the break. And I want to repeat repeat it and ask the very same question. Balenciaga, you know, the designer, the balenciaga designer that has come under some heavy fire for their child exploitation, their promotion of pedophilia, their promotion of children as sex objects holding teddy bears and stuffed animals in sex bondage outfits laying them on couches and provocative provocative positions in front of tables filled with wine glasses. I mean, straight up pedophilia type stuff. Balenciaga has issued a statement saying, there was never our intention to abuse or exploit children. And I can't remember where I just saw on Twitter said, well, then what the hell was your intention? What was your intention? You are absolutely sexualizing children to sadly a nation with far too many pedophiles in it. And we know the pedophiles are out there because we see how many of them are trying to sexualize the children at preschool levels at kindergarten levels at primary school levels, grooming them into sexual beings by talking to them about their sexual orientations and their sexual identifications. It is a massive movement rooted in pedophilia. And good people in all walks of life, parents at the forefront need to push back against the teacher's unions and and the. Giant corporations like balenciaga and the entertainment industry that are trying to push these things, we have to go to war over this. And when I say war, I mean that figures figuratively, of course, we will do and should do anything we can to protect our kids because literally what do we have left? If we don't have our children being raised, safely, happily with the values and the family values that we were raised with that literally helped us to become the greatest civilization in the history of the world..

The Death of Free Speech

The Death of Free Speech

"So this passage yesterday in the Senate of the respect for marriage act. Which again is just completely duplicitously and deceptively named. It does not respect marriage. And in fact, trash's marriage, along with trashing and most importantly, the constitution, that's what a trash is. The constitution on the First Amendment. I want to give you some of the language from the alliance defending freedom in response to this passage yesterday. Ryan bangert is the senior vice president of strategic initiatives. Speaking of the respect for marriage act, this is what he said. This dangerously cynical and completely unnecessary Bill is a direct attack on the First Amendment. It does nothing to change the legal status of same sex marriage anywhere. That's exactly what I said. But it undermines religious freedom everywhere. And exposes Americans throughout the country to predatory lawsuits by activists seeking to use the threat of litigation to silence debate and exclude people of faith from the public square. Today, the Senate has chosen to disregard legitimate concerns about the undeniable harms of this bill. If the Senate truly cared about protecting religious freedom, it would have included comprehensive amendments proposed by senators Lee, Rubio and Langford. And by the way, just FYI as an aside, that's what they took up yesterday was the amendments. Nobody was trying to undo. Same sex marriage protections. No one. The amendments were solely to protect people from being railroaded into civil suits or even criminal suits or criminal prosecution for not participating in something they may have a religious or a conscience objection of.

"I'm live in the relief factor dot com studios of Cleveland, Ohio, a.m. 1420, the answer. Really appreciate you being with us. We got a lot to talk about in the next two hours. I'm going to pick up a little bit in a moment on the attack on our First Amendment that we've been discussing by way of this respect for marriage Bill. Also, however, by way of big tech, Apple computers and what they're trying to do to Twitter and other Twitter has, you know, actually respected free speech under its new management new leadership. But a couple of quick things, number one, you don't know who I am if you are ever interested in listening to what I do. I want to remind you or let you know that we're at W HK radio dot com and my program airs 9 until noon eastern every day, right before Dennis prager show. So you can find me there. I also do a podcast where 6 episodes into a new podcast. It's called talking smack with bob and Jack. You can find it wherever you get your podcasts. I would invite you to do that and give it a listen and give us some feedback on that. You can also find me on Twitter at France on air FRA and T Z on air. You could also just search for the nickname always right radio. And you can also find me on Trump's truth social. Always write W HK, always write WHC. So I want to throw all of those out there because I love the opportunity to speak with a new audience with a broad audience, my people in Cleveland are my my most loyal and favorite people in the world, the people that I talk to every single day. I love to expand that. It's kind of like the Republican Party wants to expand the tent. And that's what I want to do when I get a chance to talk to people all over this great country. So those are ways you can find me online. And on the air. The last caller was a cop from Chicago, I believe he was who said there is a police vehicle that is decked out in adorned in inclusive rainbow colors. He said he'll never drive it because he doesn't believe in that promotion. He said he's inclusive. People can be whatever they want to be. It's not going to tell anybody not to be. But he doesn't think it should be promoted. I have a very similar story. You know that little kicky ball event that they have going on over there and some Muslim country or another? It's where they burn around for like 90 minutes, sometimes 95 minutes other times. 99 minutes and other time, a 110 minutes, I don't know how they make it up, but they weren't around kicking a ball, never scoring points. Apparently there's a big one of those things going on right now. And the only thing I know about it is that two weeks ago before they went into it. The U.S. kicky ball team. Displayed an unveiled their team logo. They're crest, if you will. The crest that used to be made up of, you know, our national colors, red, white, and blue. But they changed their kicky ball team logo. To the rainbow colors. Now, if I ever needed a reason to not be interested in kicky ball, and by the way, according to the CDC, coma awards all over the country are being overrun right now with people who slipped into them watching the kicky ball tournament. So I think the CDC should probably shut down that World Cup of kicky ball until we flatten the boredom curve. If anything would make me less interested in watching that little kicky ball tournament, it would be the fact that they have taken away our national identity. Our red, white and blue replaced by the rainbow. For what? For what reason? I mean, you mess with my flag, you mess with me. You mess with my colors, you change them. I mean, the very bare minimum I'm gonna do is not support you. So, you know, just my story, I don't believe in promotion of somebody's personality or lifestyle or identity and have a replace our national identity in the process. I just don't. Does that mean you can't be who you want to be? No, of course not. Be who you want to be. But number one, don't try to force it on me. Number two don't let it replace things that are important to me. And number three, which I'm going to go ahead and bump to the top of that priority list to number one, don't push it on kids. Don't push it on kids, we won't have a problem..

Respect for Marriage Act Destroys Key Constitutional Provisions

"Many Americans, millions of Americans. Are too stupid to look into what is going on. What Congress is passing, what it means to the constitution to your rights as granted to you by our founding fathers. Actually, as granted to us by God, our rights come from God that they were, they were codified. They were noted, they were written. They were documented by our founding fathers. And the respect for marriage act absolutely inappropriately and inaccurately named. Is going to tear apart the First Amendment to the constitution of the United States quite literally on two of the 5 provisions protections in the First Amendment. What are the protections of the First Amendment, the very first one, of course, is freedom of religion. Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion. Nor prohibit the free exercise thereof. It's the first protection in the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights which leads the constitution. It protects our freedom of religion, it protects our freedom of speech, it protects our freedom of the press, it protects our right to petition the government for the redress of grievances, it protects our right to assemble in whatever capacity we need to presumably peacefully, 5 provisions and at least two of them are completely torn asunder by the passage of the inappropriately named respect for marriage act.

"Our country is under attack, Friends, our country is under attack, honestly, seriously, literally, unlike it has ever been under attack before. Now we've been under physical attack. We have been hit by terrorism. We were hit on 9 11. We were hit of course in December of 1941 by Japan. I mean, we have been attacked in some ways before, never the way we are being attacked right now, because this attack is coming from within. It's coming from us. It's coming from quite literally you, me, because we vote for our representation. We vote for the senators. We vote for the representatives in the House. We vote for the president. And our core foundational principles in the United States of America are being torn apart right now before our very eyes. And if you don't know what I'm talking about at this particular moment, then you apparently did not hear about the respect for marriage act. The respect for marriage act is like so many others, it's kind of like the, you know, inflation reduction act. It's completely misnamed, it's completely inaccurate. It's completely untrue. But that doesn't matter. They want to who could possibly oppose inflation reduction. Of course we want inflation reduction, we want to eat the rate of inflation to go down, of course, what are you talking about? I mean, yeah, how could who could oppose that? That's why they named these things the way they do. And in the respect for marriage act along goodness gracious. How is that a bad thing? How can we possibly not respect marriage? Of course I'm for the respect for marriage act.

The Fruit of Liberal Arts

"So a lot of parents have had this experience. You send your kid off to college, you're proud. Dylan got into duke. We're so happy. And then the kid comes back and hates not only you, but the country and himself and the chances of that child having a happy productive personal life go to about zero. That's the fruit of liberal arts in this country now. So it's a very common experience, but one mother decided to try and fix it. She sent her daughter to a town ten mount holyoke university of Massachusetts tuition, over 50 K a year. The child comes back totally programmed like a cult member. So the mom spends 300 bucks a day for a deprogrammer to undo the brainwashing and it worked. Annabelle Rockwell is the daughter. She graduated mount holyoke. She's now the development director at PragerU. She joins us. So annabelle, thank you so much for coming on. So deprogram suggests undoing unreasonable religious belief. Did you feel like a cult member after man holyoke? Tucker, thank you so much for having me. First, I'm gonna say that I arrived at mount holyoke bright eyed and bushy tailed so excited to be there in 2011 and is as soon as I got there, I was told that, you know, I should refer to myself as a first year, not a freshman because we were a historically women's college. I was left to note in my mailbox saying he may be a she, she may be a he don't assume anyone's gender, and I thought, oh, okay, that's new. Hold on a second. This is precious. It's an old girl's college. But you shouldn't assume that it's a girl.

The NBA hates America and loves China. It's a scummy organization in the NBA. Who's the head of it? Is that Adam silver who is that? He's really another one who. To the extent that he will ever be remembered it will be for harming the cause of liberty on earth. The NBA seems to attract pretty scummy people in its high echelons. And not a few like LeBron James and its among its players. So he was asked if he would condemn what is happening in Chinese. Well, I'm not, you know, they don't ask me in China to condemn I'm paraphrasing. To condemn all the AR-15 mass murders in America.

"All right, everybody. I hope you had a good Thanksgiving, I did. But I didn't miss any over the lockdowns. I never say over COVID, the lockdowns were the issue. So it was wonderful, but not a relief to finally have it again. I had a Thanksgiving with family, my wife's family, my family is in the east, and I don't think they would have gotten together, at least in 2020. But her family is more conservative and would get together, so we were together Thanksgiving 2020, 2021, and now 2022. We believe in Thanksgiving, we believe that a day of thanks. Commemorating the founding of this country. The people who are basically ignorant of history, all America was founded on violence. And tell me what country was not. What country was not founded on violence. People moved to other places, people don't want them to move there, and they fight. That is the history of the world. Hopefully it is coming to an end. And people will honor a boundaries in frontiers, but that is true everywhere. Did Indian tribes not fight other Indian tribes? Did white people? Did Europeans come to a continent of pacifists? The issue is hatred of America, the issue was in historical truth.

Kanye West and Nick Fuentes Meet With Former President Trump

"So Kanye West visited the president Trump and he brought man named Nick Fuentes. I was not familiar with him prior to this. And my belief has always been that there is a special place in hell, and I believe in hell. For the people who deny the Holocaust. You have to be a particularly vile human being for your contempt for truth. And you're loathing of the Jews. I hesitate to even say that there is no more documented event of which I am aware. Than the Holocaust. You know, when I first heard that there were people who denied it happened I remember a guy called my show and actually said that. Many, many years ago. And I didn't yell at him, all I said was, so I assume that you'll call up a talk show now and say that no slaves were no slavery took place. That, in fact, the blacks came from Africa on cruise ships. He said, no, no, no, I would never say that. Said, why not? That's the same denying slavery is the same as denying the Holocaust. It's so, but it's interesting. They don't deny slavery. So that's why it's clear that it's clear that there's a hatred of Jews. Involved, but the hatred of truth is even more dangerous in some ways than the hatred of Jews. But the hatred of truth always leads to evil. That Kanye West brought this low life is vile creature to the white, not The White House. Tomorrow Lago. Is doesn't speak well for Kanye West. That he even associates with Nick Fuentes gives you an idea of the low level to which he has sunk.

The Left Mocks Christianity With No Fear

"Several BYU fans in attendance Saturday told universe sports that they found the skid upsetting and rude for its inclusion of sacred temple themes. See, if you say that men do not give birth at Stanford, you are held in such contempt that you might lose your job if you're not a tenured professor. And if you are a student, you will be ostracized and condemned. But if you, if you use terminology from the Mormon church and use it to mock the church, that's fine. It's like the book of Mormon, the famous Broadway play. The cowards who made the book of Mormon would never have done the book of the Quran. Never. They mock people who won't hurt them. That is the reason the left max Christians. They never mock Muslims. They know Christians won't hurt them. It's as simple as that. Cowardice is at the heart of leftism. Cowardice is at the heart of the university, if you're not a coward, you do not qualify as a dean. Or as a president of a university.

Every elite university has at its core, a contempt for every expression of Christianity. I know that many Christians do not be Mormons, theologically Christian. I have no desire to enter that issue.

"dennis" Discussed on Dennis Prager Podcasts

"Yeah. That's another thing not to say. I agree. Dennis has been so gracious. He's met several of my Friends and you've loved all of them. Yeah, why have I been gracious? Because you've had them to Shabbat dinner, we went backstage at one of your speeches. You're so lovely to all of my Friends. Okay, if that makes me gracious, I'm gracious. You are, take it. I. I find it fascinating to meet your Friends. Among other things, I mean, aside from just nice people, which speaks the world about you. So I'll end with my mirror's theory, that I have I said it on the broadcast. No, you haven't, but I've read it. Yeah, no, I know you know it. But. So I think there are three mirrors in life, mirror of your mind, the mirror of your character, and the mirror of your body, obviously. So the mirror of your body, your face is a regular physical mirror. What is the mirror of your mind? That's the one that first hit me is writing. Everybody listening to this should know. You want to know what's in your mind? And whether you think clearly right. Not for publication, just right. And then see or hand it to a friend and see if it makes sense. Right on any subject, what you think about, I don't know, the afterlife. It doesn't have to be politic, it doesn't matter what it is. Anyway, writing is the mirror of the mind and the people you draw into your life are the mirror of your character. So you draw a really fine people into your life. Ditto. Okay, thank you. But I agree. I mean, we're approved for each other. Well, I think that's true. Yes. But if people lament, why do I have all these these people who end up hurting me in my life? You have to look inward. Right. Why do you attract them to begin with? Well, relatedly, I know that this podcast is a quality podcast because of the quality of emails that I get from people. But I talked about it during our last episode. It just blows me away how open people are, how kind, how smart our listeners send me books. They sent me articles. It's incredible. So we attract pretty good. This podcast attracts good people. That is entirely accurate. I just want to say on the smart. I developed a theory, very early in my broadcast life, based on what you just said. And it was never underestimate the intelligence of your listeners and never overestimate their knowledge. And that has been a great guideline for me. I never speak down to my listeners. No. I know there are many bright people listening. What may not be as many knowledgeable people, which is a tragedy of our educational system..

Is Talking to Strangers a Lost Art?

"So I'm going to tell you a related anecdote from my life. I've always been a member of a gym. And when I was in my 40s, I was a member of a gym. And now much later, I'm I was a member of a Jim till the lockdowns and then I quit because they insisted on masks and I wasn't going to work out with a mask. So I have a trainer come as you know three days a week to my home. But I saw a very interesting difference. So that's 30 years ago. So 30 years ago, it was common to see almost everybody talking to one another at some point. I'm talking about the people who came to work out. And maybe even trainers, but I'm just looking it would be normal. Male male male female female female, you just, you know, how you doing, what are you doing? What exercises do you work? I don't know what it would be. People talked. I made it a point to look at my gym a few years ago. Prior to the lockdowns, not one person was talking to one person. Not one. You're considered a weirdo if you talk. That's correct. That's right.

A lot of men know elite college no good job. And they're not particularly happy. So I don't know today. I think there were a lot of unhappy young people, but you're right, there are more young women, but I think that there's another reason work satisfies men more than it satisfies women. And that what I just said to you is like saying the N word at an NAACP convention. Right. Yes. To acknowledge the reality of. How much more satisfaction men get from work alone, and that's the way we're built. We're not the same, the two sexes. And this is just another denial of reality.

We have so many resources. Honestly, if you're at Harvard, it's more likely than not that you come from a family that is financially well off. And that to me is all the more damning why those people go into a financial services industry. I have a period Harvard who both of his parents died before college. He grew up in The Bronx. He has to care for his ten year old sister, and he went on to one of these companies because he needed to make really big money off the bat. Totally understand that, I would do the same thing if I were in his position. But most of my friends, Dennis, who go into these lines of work, they're not in that position. They could take a risk. It's not a do or die situation for them. And yet they still go and work it. I'm saying Goldman because that's not where my two friends are working. They go and work in a place like Goldman. Clearly, okay. The other three. The other three, two are unemployed. And the reason if you're unemployed after graduating Harvard, it's your from thank you. Time 51. If you graduate Harvard from, you've really chosen to be unemployed and the 5th one. The 5th one, I'm very proud of her. She moved to a southern state, and she's working at a local newspaper as a crime reporter.

The Transition Between College and Real Life

"So did you see your roommates? Because I'm always interested in you and your roommates, because that's when we began the broadcast. Yes, yes, I did see my whole 7. Is it 7? There are 6 of us total, so I have 5 others. So you saw all 5. I saw all 5. Was it nice? Oh, it was so much fun. It was just great. And we were all reflecting on the fact that no one right now is really thriving after college. The transition between college and real life is a hard one. It's sort of a slap in the face. If I'm being honest. Right. And it was nice to sit with all of them in commiserate because all of us are trying. But it wasn't, it's not been a slap for you. No, I mean, in some ways it has, but it's been far less of a slap for me because I unlike most of my roommates. I love my job. I have such a close relationship with you and with our producers and I, I feel like I have a lot of good things to say and I find a lot of meaning in my job. But still, I mean, it's hard from going from an environment. Where everything is structured. Your social life is built in your classes are built in and you don't have to make a living. You don't have to make a living and you know what you have to do. You have to do well in school. And that's kind of your life. Right. And then when you graduate in the whole world opens up to you, it's both liberating and daunting because you have to figure out what your goal is.

The Power of Billy Joel

"Time I ever went to Dennis house when I worked with him two summers ago, he, you know, I was expecting we were going to go in and be professionals and go to the office and read through newspapers and do, you know, intellectual things. And Dennis goes, no, I'm taking you upstairs to my music room. And he has this room in his house that is just filled with these futuristic looking music speakers. And I have to tell you I was a little bit skeptical. When you said, you said to me, what's your favorite song? I'm going to play it for you and it is going to be just as good if not better than if you were sitting in the first row at a concert. And I was skeptical. I had him play piano man by Billy Joel because all of you know I love Billy Joel. And it truly moved me to tears. Yes, literally. It was. I would say at least half the people I bring upstairs to hear that. Tears well up in their eyes. And by the way, I'm really a good person to vouch for this system because I have been lucky enough to be in the first row at a Billy Joel concert. Yes. You said to me, this either was as good or better. It's better actually because again, I don't want to sound ungrateful. I know how lucky I was to be in that first row of the concert, but it actually isn't the most pleasant experience being in the first row of a concert like that. Because the speakers are right there. Oh. And it's really, it's abrasive.

How Men and Women Receive Insults

"All, when I rule, when men in salt each other, it means they love each other. Right. There is no comparison. That doesn't exist in the female world. Guy shows up, dressed up at a wedding, and you go, God, you look ugly. Oh, if you said that to a woman, she would run to the bathroom and start crying. Because I've seen it happen before, I can tell you. But it wouldn't happen. That's the point. And if you would lose your closest friend, if you said that. Whereas I would get even closer to my closest male friend by saying that. See, I have a theory as to why this is. I think it's because women express an or aggression through being snarky. Did I just say no I meant? That is precious. You guys, this is horrible. This is one of the great moments of my Dennis lives for these moments. How many of them have we had on the show? Oh no. Is that precious? Annoyance. Edited out, Sean, edited out. Okay, go ahead. Hey, you know what? Yeah. Just because he's ribbing me here and he's highlighting this. I would like to expose him for a minute. Yeah, how so? I have corrected you several times. I know graduated from college and you still do it. I still do it. I am looking at you, my audience right now. I want to know, is there a difference between the error of he graduated high school in 2012 versus he graduated from high school in 2012 versus annoy me?

"I don't know why I would still be me. Right. Well, this point about authenticity is really an exceptional one because I'll give an example rooted in real life. You know, I refer to the Shabbat dinners that I go to with Dennis. And they truly have become a highlight of my life. I mean, I love these people. So much fun. It so is and it's now my secret weapon, and you said, I think at our Shabbat dinner, this past Friday. You said, you know, the Shabbat was my university. This is where and I thought that is so well said because we talk about everything. Now you know everything. Experiences it. It seems like an odd thing. It's true. Well, of course, they have to experience the right. I mean, I'm sure there are. But this one in particular is so real. Almost every traditional home. The second say, having been through so many Jewish homes on Friday night. Right. Almost, I'm talking about traditional Jews or slash religious. We'll have an almost endless dinner. It's three hours is normal, four hours is not abnormal. The talk will go from the most mundane to the most elevated. But always be some elevated talk. Right. Because in Judaism, it's actually a sin to have a communal meal and not talk quote unquote Torah. There is another statement from the talmud three Jews eat together and did not speak any Torah. It's as if they ate from the altar of the dead. I love that. I want to quote that. You were asking me in this episode. We're going on so many tangents. I want to tell my story about everybody, but I want to respond to this because you asked me at the beginning of this episode if I can talk to my friends about these matters. The answer is really no, and I want to sort of, I mean, I wouldn't because I don't think it would be effective or appreciated, but I sort of want to bring that quote to them and go, we are sort of succumbing to the altar. We are sort of eating from the altar of the dead if we avoid this stuff. Anyway, I love that. That really moved me. But these Shabbat dinners are so fun. But you probably know this, but you may not. At the beginning, uncomfortable is the wrong word. I was taken aback by the amount that all of you at the table would joke about sex. And we're all committed to Torah and God. I just want to make clear. Of course, of course, yes, you're all committed to our God, you all of your wife sitting there. Oh, yeah, the wives are. Of course, in children and in many cases. And children are not young children, but you know. But their children. Yes. Are participating. And you know, it's not constant. It's not like every 5 sentences. But it happens, and it's not unbelievably crass or crude, but it happens. And I just grew up in a home where that was just my parents never talked about sex ever. And by the way, my parents listened to this podcast. Thank you for not talking about sex because I think it would make me uncomfortable. I think it's better to go to a Shabbat dinner, at least for me..

"I think happiness and I know where we should move on to our next discussion. But I just want to quickly say, I do think a lot of happiness is building a robust internal infrastructure. So that you can react appropriately to situations that may make you unhappy. And I have found this as I've becoming more religious and more spiritual in building that internal infrastructure for myself, that when I have disappointments or things that annoy me in everyday life, I now see it in a different way. I don't let it get to me as much because I have a stronger infrastructure than when I was secular and non religious, I would let the everyday world get to me because that's all you have is the everyday world. So I like the internal infrastructure. Yes. Well, you have a strong edifice now. Yes. Stronger. Well, those are the terms that I've been thinking about it with my building my own internal infrastructure. That's how I've been talking to myself about these things in the past few months. So you have a lot of girlfriends, which I find very good. I do. I'm very lucky. So do you talk to them about these things? It's very interesting you bring that up because I was thinking lately that I wish I could more. The answer is yes and no. With some of them I do with some of them I don't, but with all of them, I can't talk to them about it at the level that I talk to you about these things. For instance, religion, almost all of my Friends are secular. But unlike most people who I went to high school or college with, they have respect for religion. They don't disparage it. But still, I can't, I can't talk to them about my favorite passage in genesis. I can't talk to them about some of the more spiritual things that I've been learning because. A, for some of them, it doesn't interest them in B for all of them. They haven't either grown up in a house or gone to schools or been in an environment where those things are valued in the way that its valued in the environment, the work environment that I'm so lucky to be in. So that can be lonely Dennis, even though you know how much I love my girlfriends. You've met many of them. And they love you. So you don't really have any religious girlfriends. No. I don't. I have one religious male friend. And honestly, you and the people at the Shabbat dinner table, even though many of them are twice three times my age, those are my religious Friends. We ought to talk about that age issue. We touched on it. We should, but we touched on it a little bit in the last podcast where I was saying that I am determined to find people regardless of how they come. Whether they're old, young, whatever race, whatever gender, it doesn't matter. That's so built into me that it's not even an effort. Right. You're terrific you're terrific and of issue, and if you're not terrific, you're not terrific. Well, that's why we are genuinely Friends. This is genuinely, I think that's come through to a lot of people. So I just want to end that thing again because it's amazing to me, both it's both, which is another great subject, but I want to develop it. I'll just say, I am astonished at how many new important ideas I have. I would have thought that by now all the really important ideas I had or nearly all had already occurred to me and so it's both encouraging and discouraging. I mean, I didn't know that. Like I didn't know until a few weeks ago when I answered a question on my on my PragerU fireside chat, how do you know who's lying and who's telling the truth between the left and the right? And it came up with this incredibly important thing, which I wrote my column on even. Well, chose you did know it. If you were able to respond, but maybe you have an articulated idea. Well, all right, not articulating. To me the same. Right. I understand. Right. So the ones who censor are lying and then so I read comments to my articles..

"Well, it self serving. Of course. That's the simple answer. Right. But it just substantiates your point. This was always here. It's just been enlarged. A final question, which may be way, way too much for this. And it's just the nature of our conversations to have big macro and personal micro issues. But here's a big macro. But it applies certainly by definition. It's in the micro realm as well. And this bothers me, actually, this does, it disturbs me this realization, and for whatever reason, I have felt it more in the last few years than ever before in my life. That we are all born with nature's somebody I was talking to recently, privately, was telling me, he said, he wanted to meet with me privately someone I know. Through work, and what is it you so what is it you wanted to raise? We finally met. And he said, so Dennis, I respect what you have to say. I am also a religious Christian, and I know you're a religious Jew. So you teach about the ten commandments and the importance of honoring your mother and father. My mother is a sociopath. She has no conscience. And by the way, a certain percentage of humanity, they're not all murderers sociopath doesn't mean you're a mass murderer. It means that you truly don't have a normal sense of empathy. You just don't. It's like the proverbial screw loose. And I was thinking again, this is what I meant by this disturbing thing of these last years. I'm not born with that nature. You're not born with that nature. That woman apparently was. And all the or the other natures, the desire to be a victim. You know, I rather be a beekeeper with no gloves on than be a victim. Although I would end up being a victim, probably. But that's funny. Look, I had a nature. You have a nature. Grappling with great issues is not normal when you're 16. It's not, I don't know how normal it is when you're 36. Right. So the bottom line question, which we're not going to resolve here. And I don't know how resolvable it is. Is do we have free will? Given how powerful our natures are. See, look, I'll give forgive me. I'll just give the most dramatic example. Very interesting. When I read about men who molest children, so let me tell you as a man, a hot blooded normal male. I am as attracted to children as I am to rocks. Okay? It's just a fact. There was zero erotic reaction to a child, zero. Most men are like me. I just want to make that clear. But there are men who molest babies now, I blame them, but I don't have to, I don't get any credit for not molesting children. It's like, I don't get credit for not molesting rocks. So it's so antithetical to yeah, but it's empathetic..

"So odd. I have been broadcasting. I just had my 40th anniversary. I know. We didn't make a big enough deal that. Unbelievable. It's interesting, and it's a big deal, but I want to make a big deal. Anyway, thank you. So in one of the first years of my broadcasting, I had 5 hours on the weekend of my own show and two hours where I was the moderator of a priest minister rabbi, which is a blessing in my life. Anyway, so I had 5 hours alone, and people call in whatever they wanted. It wasn't like now. I open up with a subject and then take calls. It was then just call in on anything, which I always love. Guy calls me up. So again, I was 30 something years old. And the. Sky calls me up. And he's about my age. He says, Dennis, I'd like your advice here. I don't know what to do about holding a door open. Because this is obviously based on what you were just noting. And I said, and why is that? He said, well, I think as a man, I should hold the door open. On the other hand, she might perceive it as my thinking she's the weaker sex. And then she may get annoyed with me. And I remember, I don't remember the word for word, but I do remember saying, if you are a man, you hold the door open, and if she gets angry with you, you know what a fool she is. Yes. And the issue. If anything. If you any time a man starts worrying about the female reaction, his masculinity level has declined. What I was going to say is, if anything, it shows that a woman, I mean, again, I think the men and women are equal, but would be the greater sex because she should be more pampered in taking care of. A person should go out of their way to make that woman's experience, even if it's just walking through a door, easier and more enjoyable. When we think. One would think. Yeah, arguably the argument could be for the I mean, if you realize the low self esteem and I hate to use the term. But of a woman who thinks, oh, I'm insulted if he holds the door open. See, this is where I, this is where the ideas we talked about this a few episodes ago, I believe that left wing ideas have come to subvert people's natures. Inherently as a woman. That's correct. Overwhelmingly, you like when a man is chivalrous towards you. And now people are so over analyzing everything and they're so woke and the left wing ideas have seeped into literally every single aspect of life opening doors for God's sakes. That they're left ism comes in and trumps their nature. That's right. It's like that angel and devil on your shoulder, telling her that it's an impressive action. I. Have so many examples of that, the most recent that I've noted to people is I thought it was female nature to protect children's innocence. Right. Yes, we discussed it. Right, I know that, but I'm just giving, I like to tie things in so people see the pattern. I'm just showing off at this point with how much I remember. No, I'm glad you do, but in this case, I knew it and it's deliberate. I want people to see the pattern. The pattern is what you just said. Ideas can Trump nature. Who would think that? You'd think nature is so powerful. Yes. So the woman's desire to protect children is less than leftist teaching that you want to tell children about sex at the age of 5..

This is Julie Hartman and it's the Dennis and Julie podcast and I want to say even though some will object to my saying something wonderful about us. It's not about, well, it is about us. This is a unique venture in communication. It's so real and in the best sense intimate. And I just needed to say that. We mentioned Regis and Kelly last podcast, and it got me thinking, can we compare ourselves to Regis and Kelly, but no, there's so much closer in age than we are. Well, I don't also, to the times that I sought, I don't think, look, it's not a knock on anybody else. But it really isn't. They did a great job. But the depths into which we enter in terms of life and thought and our own lives. Unique doesn't mean better. It just means unique. Right. They were very pop culture heavy. And they were wonderful for what they did. But the age is the least of the differences. I mean, that's a big, big, fascinating aspect to our podcast. Anyway, I just want you all to know that Julie had an experience when she told it to be on the phone. You were my first call. Thank you. Driving home after this happened, the first person I called was you. Your reaction was, at least speaking to me, you were not only not traumatized. You were more fascinated, I think. Is that a fair word? Oh, absolutely. When I came home and I told my mom, by the way, the audience is probably thinking, just tell it already instead of talking about it, but when I told my mom about it when I got home, she said, were you embarrassed? Were you upset? Did it shake you? And I said, no, not at all. That was.

"For? And there are certain things you call social workers for. Here is an example. And they don't call social work or they call the police. These people are frauds. You know, I wanted to make this point when we were discussing my graduation and how every 5 to ten minutes it was this you guys are the best you're going to save the world, et cetera. I think I was just sitting there thinking there's so much pretending nowadays. Like we used to live in a world, first of all, where people wouldn't say those kinds of platitudes. And second of all, where people in the audience would roll their eyes at that kind of puffery. Now, people just smile, it's this weird, again, maybe we disagree on this and maybe the people saying it and the people hearing it truly believe that this generation is different. I think that's partially true. I do think that there is a large contingent that knows that it's probably just, again, puffery. But people don't even roll their eyes at that stuff anymore. People are unwilling to call. It's like this mutual exchange of BS. I'm sorry to abbreviate a curse word, but it's really the only word that I can think of right now. And even in the classroom, you know, when I would be in my sections and we would be talking about a book and somehow, of course, the conversation would devolve into social justice. Everyone was just saying these, again, BSE, platitudes. And it was this weird thing where everyone in the room knew that it was BS and knew that everyone was just pretending and it was puffery and it made no sense, but no one would kind of cut through the fog and say this is a stupid discussion and it's not intellectually honest and what the hell are you talking about? That's the problem with our generation. We exchange in this vial again, just BS talk that goes nowhere. So if you go out on a date, do you share these views? Oh, of course. I want the person who I am dating to know exactly what they're getting into and exactly who I am. Why would I, why would I hide this in the intimate person in my life what I think? I have a lot of girlfriends that say, you know, on the date, oh, I need to hide from them that I watch this TV show because they're going to think that I'm vapid or I have to hide from them that I have a fear of this. And my response to them is, I mean, obviously you don't want to sit in the first date and throw up all of your innermost secrets and grow out. No, just throw up, yeah. Regurgitate all your bets. Sorry. I just have this visual. But no, no. Why are you going to pretend to be someone? I don't understand when people go on dating sites that they don't say everything. I don't mean the most intimate details of their lives, but everything that they think, because then you want to weed out 95% of the people. And then you have a much better chance. Also, Dennis, it's a little difficult to go on a date and hide these views when people can look me up and listen to this podcast. Well, no. Well, that's an advantage for you. You don't have to do any work. Exactly. Yes, it's like a pre vetting process. Yes, exactly. People can look me up if they don't like it..

I want you to go to beautiful. What percentage of attractive women think they were attractive? I say 5%. By the way, that will forgive me. No, it's okay. That, I might catch you. You have been talking about if they really believe it. I'm not sure that attractive women who say they look like a whale. No, really think they look like a whale. Okay, I will, I will be honest about this. I actually think that attractive women know that they're attractive, but they don't know the extent. And they can have really bad days. Yeah, 363 of them. I don't know. Well, look. My wife's a good example. You know she's a beautiful woman. She is. Right. And I'm saying because I'm her husband. She really is. She is. Every time she sees herself in a photo. Hideous. That's the word she used, she means it. This is not, she's not kidding. She's not joking. Hideous delete it. And I have said to her, as far as your concern, you would be happy if there were no photographic evidence of your having lived. Probably. Yes. Well, I look back at photos of myself in high school. And of course, in high school, I thought I was hideous, and I go, oh my gosh, you were so beautiful back then. And now you've aged and now you don't play water polo, so you don't you're not as jacked as you are, but that's actually a good lesson for me because when I see photos of myself now that I don't like, I go, okay, Julie in ten years. You're going to wish that you had appreciated that. That is entirely accurate. My wife looks at pictures from her sweaty. Yeah, okay, all right, then. But she didn't think that then. So do men just see Dennis Dennis is great for so many reasons, but you teach me so much and the listener female listener so much about male nature. Do men just totally not care? Like if they take a bad photo or because when we take photos as a family, my dad doesn't look at himself. That's right. So we know most men know certainly after high school with to put it that way or maybe even after college, but at a very early age we know that unless we're either stunningly handsome or hideously ugly, in other words, we're in the 98 percentile of men that it is our personality, brains, humor, charm, ambition, success, money, that gets a woman. Oh, totally. A course it is exactly. And that's, I know I keep bringing it back to the Bible, but that's one of the reasons why I love the Bible because it is so honest. About human nature. When God is giving his see you point this out to me, or in the book you point this out to me, not punishment, but consequence of their eating from the tree of knowledge. He says that men shall rule over women. And you have this fabulous essay about how that's not God didn't mean that the way that people would think it now. They don't mean to like, you know, men will oppress women or men will control women. But it's that men will be dominant in females like a dominant male. They would so much rather to your point, have a male that is ambitious or wealthy or charismatic. And isn't intimidated by her. Exactly. That drives women crazy. But most men especially today are intimidated by their wives, girlfriends..

And but I certainly never sought the company of people much younger than me. I mean, of course I relate to them because there were so many terrific people a PragerU. And I really adore them.

I mean, we really are. That's right. Wouldn't you say, I mean, but this also relates to something that we've said, too, in the past, on this show, you know, sisters are so close, you should say they're like Friends as opposed to family. I also view you like you're a member of my family. You're a friend, but you're also in a way kind of my boss and my co host and a friend. I mean, there's so many layers to this, but it really is just human to human. Well, it's just true. It's just, it is what it is, and I just thought it was interesting to note that so when I was smiling so much before. I can't believe I just brought up you advice. Oh, by the way. It's funny. That's worthy of that's really worthy of a topic. Because Americans don't talk about death. People are so secular society is so afraid of death. It's so hidden. I don't have zero fear of dying. Zero. I asked you that once again. I don't want to die because I'm having a great time and because I have a lot to do. But what is there to fear? There's either nothing. That's what I was going to say. Or I believe that I have a good afterlife because I think God will judge me favorably as a general statement of my body. That's what you said to me once. Yes. It's either nothing or good..

"Yes. We touched on it a few episodes ago, but it's worth expanding. By the way, this is the joy of doing this with you. I don't remember any episode that I've done. I ask Alan, what did we do last week on the happiness hour? And then he has the list for the last 22 years. Well, even today I brought in well, I lost my copy. Unfortunately, but I was grabbing your genesis comments. Where would you have lost your car? I don't know. It's so sad. I have torn my heart at my horse. My horse, my house apart for it. And I can't find it. Did you take it out to arrest him? I mean, the only place I've taken it is here to read questions. It's very odd. Maybe a liberal. Yeah, maybe a liberal game into my house and stole it. If a liberal stole genesis I'm very happy. But you mark it up. That's what's so sad. I know. But you know what? Okay, sorry, buy a new copy and I reread it and I mark it up again. Big whoop? You know? I want to finish my point because I don't want to lead the viewers hanging. It's kind of odd when I was exactly. I'm sure it was. I was saying I was thinking on my run. Ha ha, this morning. I'm embarking on this big professional journey, hopefully I am on air for as long as you have been on air God willing. I thought, you know, am I going to change my views? Will I always be as conservative as I am now? In 20 years, am I going to rewatch these podcast tapes and think differently? And the answer is I'm certainly open to changing my mind and I'm sure like you on some things I will evolve. But I really don't doubt that the core of my beliefs are going to stay the same. It would shock me. I feel so solid. See, I'll tell you why. By the way, I want people to understand why it would shock me. So you came to these views because they make sense. Oh, exactly. So things don't stop making sense. You thought this was to them emotionally. Things that make sense one day are just not going to cease to make sense. That's right. And I mean, I love America so much. I'm never going to stop believing in and fighting for America. Certainly, you know, if America continues to go down the path that it is now, I may not be too happy with it. But the real America, I will never, ever falter from trying to protect and advocate for the American value system. Oh my gosh, yes. The most unique value system ever proposed. Sean whispered in my ear while he doesn't whisper in my ear. Sean yelled in my ear. Dennis, have your huge change in 40 years. Well, that was kind of what I was getting at with the question. No, well, that's very different than do I regret it? Fair enough. Yeah. I don't regret changing my mind on air. People actually respect that. But if one were to read, and I wrote 40 years ago, I wrote my first book more than 40 years ago, my early 20s. I would have had to change as a person or stop thinking clearly to have changed my views. My views are not ideological, they're logical. I love that line. That is so important. Because when people, you know, I'll have people at school and I think they have an impression of my views or my job is a 100% political or ideological. And I really don't view it that way. I just view my beliefs as the core of who I am and just my value system outside of the realm of the political. I apply these values to the realm of the political. It's not. That's right. Yeah. So a guy came over to me, I don't know, you'll know if you heard this story, but yes, I will. With my memory. I don't know if I've told it on the air. But three, four years ago, prior to lockdowns. I never say prior to COVID prior to lockdowns. At the Philadelphia airport, I remember where it was even. A guy comes over to me about, I'd say he's about 30 years old. And if I think a guy is handsome, he must be really handsome because most men don't think of other men about how they look. He was, he was my height, but certainly thinner. He was 6 four like I was, because I remember when I look at someone eye to eye, it's shocking. Yes. And good-looking and walks over to me goes, I just want to say how much I appreciate your.

"About. You just told me about a book you're thinking of. Yes, what the left is done to my generation. I think it wouldn't hurt to begin with that story. Yes, you're right. That is a very good I mean, I could begin with so many. That's right. Stories would be very important. Perhaps for each, you know, maybe for the love and dating chapters to start with that story. Maybe. I start with a different story for each chapter. I think that thesis. Well, there's no love and no dating. That's the irony. Right. The thesis statement of the book actually, I'm inspired by what we discussed last week. Remember when you said to me that when you were growing up, you were taught to value God in country. And you said to me, what were you taught? And I was said I was taught to value myself. That, I think, is the root of so many of our problems. That, I mean, you've said many times Dennis that if there's been one thing that you've been arguing for the past, almost 40 years of radio, it's been that secularism or extreme secularism, has harmed our country. I think that that goes along perfectly with what has happened to my generation. Now we are taught to trust ourselves only. We don't rely on something like religion. We don't rely on the wisdom of our elders. And that makes for a sad and desiccating life because you can't, if you're just the arbiter of your own truth, if you are your own arbiter of right and wrong, you don't, you don't behave well. And you don't lead a happy life. So that's my thesis statement, I think, of the book. When you say and you're right, when I asked you, so what is your generation worth of value myself? So I started to smile. The reason for my smile was, I don't believe. I was told once in my life, value yourself. The it was not in the vocabulary of my parents. It was not in the vocabulary of my religious Jewish education. Not that there was ever a call to non value yourself, but the irony is the self esteem generation has less self esteem. Oh, totally. Totally. Less happiness than those of us who were taught in.

"That's a very interesting point. And I use the piano analogy if you're a great pianist. You still have to give your kid piano lessons. Right. Watching you play piano will not make them a great pianist. Right. So both, I would say are equally important. And that's where parents fail, they didn't speak about the good values that animated them. Macro or micro. That's right. Wow. See, for example, let's say, here's a perfect example. So let's say your dad and you periodically curse. Right? Use curse words, right? Four letter words is sometimes called. So you tell your kids, you know, you shouldn't use those words. And then in the car, some guy cuts you off and you utter an expletive. So you can say, look, I'm right when I tell you not to curse. But I'm a human, too. And so are you, and sometimes it will happen. Yes. It doesn't nullify the rule that I have taught you. Right. You have to say that. Otherwise, the silly kid will think, oh, what a hypocrite. That is exactly the right response, and I think that's a more powerful response than going, oh my God, I'm awful. I'm awful. I just cursed. I can't believe I did that. You have to, you have to provide the truly human response. Be real. Be real. And when someone is trying to teach a lesson, but they're not being real to use that example of the dad in the car condemning himself vociferously for cursing. It doesn't have the, it doesn't produce the result that you think it does. That's right. Being genuine and real makes so much more of an impression. Yes, it isn't an interesting that you have to practice to be real. You would think you have to practice to act, and fake. God, you're right. But oh. Oh, God. This is going to make an impact. Hotel, please. I could tell already because you understand the depth of what I just said. I worked very, very hard in the beginning of my speaking, to not sound like a speaker. That's not easy. No, it's not. The moment people get up in front of an audience or talking to a microphone, hi, everybody. It's a Dennis prager here, and it's great to be with you on another great day. It seems disingenuous. It is. It is. Right. And I. Look, you know me off the air. There is no difference in the way I speak. Is that correct? Oh, yes. That by that took effort. There's no difference in who you are in any kind of way. Right. That doesn't take effort. Right. But it took effort for me. Not to speak like a speaker. To speak totally normally, to a thousand people or on radio a million people as to one. And I tell that to everyone who goes into public life. Who cares to hear from me? You know, sometimes I think that people think it is a sign of weakness to admit that morality takes effort or authenticity takes effort. We have to acknowledge that it does. For instance, I know I said this, I think it was our last episode. I was coming home from Shabbat dinner and I almost turned left without the light because it was so late and I thought to myself there's no one here. I could just go through the light and I stopped myself because I really think that, you know, if I did it that time, I would get the idea that I could do it. So it was a good time. But I don't think that makes me a bad person to say that I was tempted to run the light. I don't think it makes me a bad person to say the other day. The opposite. Of course. It makes you a good person. It makes you a good person, for instance, the other day I had plans with a friend and I was really tired. I honestly, I love this friend, but I just didn't want to go. I was exhausted. And I start typing the message going, oh my gosh, I'm so sorry. My mom needs me to run. And then I thought, no, she doesn't. My mom doesn't need me to run an errand. That's a white lie. And even though it's not malicious, I have to practice being truthful at all times. And I am truthful. 99% of the time, the 1% is when an instance like that where I want to get out of something I don't want to hurt their feelings. That's right. You don't want to hurt their feelings. But you have to, you know, even in those small things you have to practice it because the small things inform the big things. I was also thinking of another thing when you said that. It's hard for me to think of a day that I don't do something I don't want to do. Really? Do things you want to do? No, no, no, no. It came out wrong if that's what you heard. Every single day I'm doing things I don't want to do. That makes a lot more sense. Okay, so I should have put it in the positive. Right. The kids should understand from the get go, whether you want to do something or not. Is usually irrelevant. The issue is, what should I do, not what do I want to do? But do you know beginning with my generation in the 60s? There was a common phrase from psychotherapists. All you should have no shoulds in your life..

"After your speech. Well, I know that we have gone a far away from the original question and I want to get back to it. But I do want to tell our listeners a really funny story about Sue that we talk about a lot because it's the name I call her and you call her the bombshell. I just think this is hilarious. So last year, when I worked for Dennis, I was on his show once a week, and otherwise I would just help you with your life. And one of the things that I would do was read Dennis email. And that is, boy, do you get a lot of emails and just as an aside, thank God you saw my original email a year and a half ago. That's another amazing thing. It's amazing. It really is because you are just flooded with them. Anyway, you know, occasionally Dennis will get a mean email from someone and I thought one of them was so funny because it was just this paragraph saying, Dennis prager, you bigot, you white supremacist, you this do that. And then at the end of it, the guy wrote. The only thing you have going for you is that blond bombshell Sue. Oh, is that where you come from? I got it from that. That's hilarious. It's funny, because the guy was just crucified. There is something positive about me. And there was something positive at the end. So now we jokingly, whenever I'm around, Sue, I go, hello, bombshell. Hello, buddy. Yes. Which that's the last thing she thinks she is, which is. I know. Drives me crazy. Well, she's beautiful and she's so smart. Well, you know my line, right? They comfort Dennis, and they stay for Sue. They come for you and they stay for Sue. That's what someone told you. Yeah, that's right. So I just exactly see you. That's right. Well, all right. So back to the debate. Yes, so oh yes, you were mentioned. The reason we got on through because you mentioned how I reacted to the people you brought. Yes. So yeah, that has not changed. And also one other thing so people should know this. So there's virtually no day at least from out of the house. At a restaurant or in an airport, that's people come over and say, can I get a selfie with you or just come over? And then I offer, would you like a selfie? And they always think they're bothering me. And I don't think they're bothering me. I just want to say that. You're truly honored by it. I am. That's right. It is an honor. Well, of course it is. Also remember they're asking it because of me, not because I'm a famous actor. Right. There's a very big difference. Yes. They're not asking it because I'm famous, although that's a factor I acknowledge, but that's not the primary reason. It's because I'm Dennis. Right. When you meet an actor, you don't know them from Adam. You know the roles they played, and that they're famous. Well, it speaks to your humility that you're so welcoming and also what I notice with you is you really ask questions of the people who come up to you. Again, growing up when I would see famous people is very transactional. You get a selfie and sometimes the famous person would be polite and think the person. But you, because of course, you're in the business of learning these things. I even noticed with my friends, you're asking them about their college experiences and their dating life and you really care about the person and you want to understand their life. There's a selfish component I just want you to know. The selfish component is. I really don't want to be speaking. I want to be. I am more interested in them than it would be at that time. I wonder, and I promise people we will get back to this debate we go off topic a lot, but I think that's what makes it.

"Hey everybody, Dennis prager here with Julie Hartman and it's the Dennis and Julie podcast. So I got to tell you folks and I hope people realize how here I am because it sounds sort of hack meat or cliched. I really look forward to this. Dennis, you stole my line. I was just about to say on the days when we don't do the podcast, I miss doing it. Do you have the same thing? Yes. And it's not like I don't have a chance to talk about it. I know. We talk almost every day on the phone, which is. No, no, I don't mean that we don't have a chance. I don't have a chance to talk to the public alive and do a show every day I do the PragerU podcast and speeches, but this is unique. We have something very special. And I won't get into that. But it is true. So hi, everybody. I was thinking about the theory that I now have. I always have theories. By the way, just side note, I always have side notes. You're going to get a big kick out of this. So I've always thought about life from the earliest memories that I have. And in my 20s, so many realizations about life just hit me. And I even wrote my first book then, and it's still in print. It's the most widely read English introduction to Judaism, so I've been thinking a long time. And I remember thinking when I hit my 30th birthday, I don't think these realizations about life are going to come quite as hard and fast as they have been in my 20s. Boy, were you wrong? Boy was I wrong exactly. So here's one of my latest. The most important question in life is there a God, because if there isn't, then this is all somewhat of a bad joke. It's over. Eternity and oblivion, et cetera. Second most important is are humans innately good. Because everything changes if you believe that they are. On the personal level on the philosophic level on the moral level, I think on every level. So you attended you were in the audience for my debate just this past week, which we're going to, by the way, we are going to put this up on the Internet. Just want you folks to know. As soon as they get ready technically with the with the video and it was about an hour and a half, it was pretty intense. And I know what I think, but it's not important. Well, it might be important. But I'm curious what you thought sitting in the audience so the debate was with a rabbi and to my surprise of an orthodox rabbi who said people are innately good, I don't think we're innately evil, but we're certainly not innately good,.

"If I were to ask him what is the safest thing if there is a fire in a school he would say closed doors. And I would, I would accept his expertise. If, but I will not ask him, is that what we should do? There, his answer is no more likely to be a good one, then the person you meet in the elevator. His expertise is fire. His expertise is not what should we do? What should we do? Is to be the is to be decided by the non fire experts. The people who live the consequences of his expertise. This, this separation between expertise and advice. Is never made. The assumption is, if you are an expert in an area, you know what we should do. That's not true. If you are an expert in building homes, I know nothing I Dennis know nothing about building homes. If you so do I go to an expert home builder and say, where should I live? Of course not. I decide where I should live, he decides how to build my house once I decide to build one. Does he decide how big my bedroom will be? No, I decide. He knows how to build bedrooms. I decide how big the bedroom should be. Not he. The colossal error that has cost us immeasurable damage. Asking expertise to decide how we should act. They know no better and probably worse. Their advice is likely to be worse than anybody else's because the fire chief only knows fire. He doesn't ask, gee, how many fires have occurred that have been fatal in American schools in the last half century? I don't know the answer, but it may well be zero. Maybe it's one, maybe two. I doubt it. So on the basis of the possibility of one kid being killed by a fire, millions have to be hot in the summer. That's stupid. Stupid. Experts generally give stupid advice, including the medical experts, and epidemiological experts, because they only know they have this narrow vision of what they know. That's it, and they think that tells them what should be done. It would be as if experts would say you can drown if you go scuba diving. Therefore we advise no one to go scuba diving. People do. People, people die when we increase the speed limit. For whatever reason we don't listen to the experts who tell us who tell us about the death rate when you raise the speed limit from 55 to 65. People who were to make these decisions will say it is a tragedy every death that will occur. But traffic must move. The cult of experts, it's a cult. It's a secular cult generally, although a lot of religious people have indistinguishable lives from secular people, indistinguishable thinking from secular people. I would say most religious people think like secular people. But a lot a lot don't. But most I think do. We saw that during the pandemic. Their fear, their irrational fear and obedience to irrationality was at least as great as secular people..

You should explain why you would never normally buy such a book or might not buy such a book, but are willing to email comments to me after reading the book. It's not very long. Within a week of receiving the book. And as the book is short, won't be won't be a big issue. All requests should be sent to Dennis at Dennis prager dot com, put pass over book in the subject line. The reason that we're doing this is to read the comments that we think we will get. When people read it to show you how universally appealing the book is, the rational pass over I got them.
