"So I appreciate you some ground rules. Keep things rational and I think that's going to help us. What I'm wondering is so for instance you had said elsewhere the New Testament from the best from what you can see. It's psychologically correct and not quite astounding. I would say there's a lot of truth and in your depictions of these stories elsewhere. You've pointed out like deep truce. The real powerful. So what my question would be is if we can say NICCI. Toca like an order of magnitude of intelligence in depth to be able to predict what would happen the next century. You know rationally. If the Bible's not the inherent word of God what's going on. That's a good question. That's a really good question I mean I'm going to try to answer that rationally but as we move forward but as I said I don't want to leave people with the notion because know some ways this is something I've thought about what I've been thinking about for a long time as I can't tell if I'm like an advocate of the religious viewpoint or its worst possible critic because I am doing my best to make it rational and there's an reductionist element to that but I think that I'm doing that while also leaving the door open to things that I don't understand because I know that there's there's more to this story than I understand or can't understand. I'm laying out what I can understand that. I'm making it rational but I do not believe for an instant that that exhausts the round like there. There are ways of interpreting these stories that work in the conceptual universe. We inhabit right now. But there's a lot of things that we don't understand what I'm saying. I found about digging into these stories. Is that the deeper. You dig the more you find. And that's pretty damned. That's one of the things that convinced me that there was more to them than I had originally suspected because things would click and I think wow. That's that's really something and then I would take it apart further and I think oh well that was something but this is. This is even more remarkable. Just keeps opening opening. And so I'm GonNa make it rational. I'm going to try to provide an answer to and it is. I think you're right about speaking about nature and his capacity for prophecy Dostoevsky's in the same category. It's like there are prophetic elements to the old and New Testament. That seem to stretch over much vaster spans of time and I'm going to try to produce a rational account of that but it mean one of the reasons that I think the New Testament is psychologically true. Let's say because and this is one of the things that's it's deeply embedded in the structure of the Bible in in the Old Testament. There's this idea and I'm skipping ahead that through a succession of states. The people who behave properly will eventually established the proper state and so the state is viewed in some sense as the the entity of salvation. But what happens in the New Testament? Is that idea gets you could say deconstructed. And instead of a state being the place of redemption a state of being becomes the State of redemption and so the idea that human beings will be redeemed moves from the Utopian state vision to the responsibility of the individual. And I think that's correct. I mean I. I believe that. That's the right answer and I think that the West in particular is predicated on that idea because it makes the state subservient to the individual. I mean there's a. There's a what a dialogue continual dialogue but in the final analysis. The locus of the divine is individual. Not The state. And I believe that. That's so true that if we don't it out and believe then we all die painfully. And that's true enough for me. So.

"It's staggeringly beautiful. One thinks of a white environment and actually actually the play of light on it makes it a blue yellow red every color of the rainbow reading astonishing colors and where our camp was Stein on the Ice Shelf and so about one hundred fifty miles from Land Simon and I were in a bad side of the caravan just with ice beneath ice in every direction. Listen and see is beyond an extraordinary sort of bubble. It's easy to wonder whether you are in a paper Bag Anto and Simon had never met before they spent February till November together crammed into the hut with two desks. Two bunks and over two hundred books penguin. The publisher had offered to sponsor them. I knew I would be there with a heck of a lot to do over winter so I set myself the task of reading a heck of a lot. I guess I alternate between Philosophy Literature and poetry it. It was a very eclectic mix so a lot of the Russians tolstoy Dostoevsky to gain if major Brits Elliott's and hardy the and the Kim's and then Plato and Aristotle and human cans and and so on I was just really astonished by the depth and breadth of the reading that they did having been given this opportunity which actually sounds kinds of blissful to me to shot themselves away with books and on pretty much nothing else to disturb them. They got through an enormous amounts of the great literature of many civilizations. Patience books are a form of escape. We travel when we read. And actually if you think about the necessity of escape in a landscape where you cannot often step outside of the door because okay the strength of the winds because of the temperature because of the real risk of not coming coming back then you have to find ways of escaping. I was quite young. Raised me naive. I think it was a great introduction to a whole field of thinking I guess I sat are looking for good or God or purpose and became more and more taken with nature existentialism by the end of the yeah and rather docker and bleaker and more introspective. I guess it was completely extraordinary because we were like a couple of rats in a cage and didn't really talk much Simon and I avoided each other like the plague through the winter and got more and more each other's nerves. It's taken years to unpack it. I think we probably both went to the command. Small things would get on one's nerves. I had a habit of putting a pulse on the stave in forgetting was there and it would start rattling and he would storm across and take it off slam it on the floor and that might have been the only sort of action in the day and so we had this extraordinary months of mainly silence quite small space surrounded by is just reading and so you get completely absorbed in whatever it is that you're involved because there are no distractions. The I am mocked by an experienced that have difficulty knowing. How real it was. As time has elapsed I had got very very involved in crime and punishment and being festering in rest colony coughs mind and he then kills the moneylender bludgeoned her to death with an axe and I remember walking behind Simon. As I'd finished the book with an ice axe in my hand and then I can still sort of see the back of his head. I don't know how close he came to death but that's fairly well imprinted on my mind..

Speaking of cases, here's a case in news of the Jews of somebody who was never tried in a an actual court of law, but has been tried in the court of public opinion. This is a very interesting case that came came across our radar screen in the last week. It's about a guy named Trayvon free. Who's a comedian and comedy writer and TV producer? He's worked on among other shows the reason HBO camping which is the new Lena Dunham creation. Lena Dunham from girls. And okay. Josh what what happened exactly somebody dug up some old anti-seismic twi-? Tweets of his from like ten years ago. All right. So apparently, he got into it a little bit with Ben Shapiro of all people this right wing journalist. Ben Shapiro, right? They were arguing over something about Beto Aurora or God knows what. And shortly thereafter, some people who followed Ben Shapiro dug up these tweets from almost a decade ago. He's thirty three. Now, he was twenty three at the time. And he was making some offensive tweets. There's no question they were offensive than HBO sends out a press release saying he's no longer affiliated with us. We don't do any work with him. And it seems like it's career is kind of you know, going to have some major setbacks to be fair. These tweets were horrible, like what were some of these anti semitic tweets that Trayvon free tweeted out a decade ago? I can't even believe there's been Twitter for a decade. But I I guess I guess there has been so what are some of the tweets? Well, back April fifth twenty ten. He said got got cut off in traffic by Jew, WW HD. What would Hitler do? Yeah. And the Hitler thing seems to be a theme. He's like how come no one ever channels their inner Hitler anymore. Let's remember he was younger, and you can see that. There's some kind of tempt to be funny in particular. There's the happy one hundred twenty second birthday Hitler. It's a good thing. You're not around to see how much you motivated the Jewish community to run everything.

"And then as I started to develop these ideas, like I had to let go of things, you know, one of the. Ideas that I've been promoting to people is that you have to let the dead would burn off and you do that. You do that as a consequence of necessity in the pursuit of responsibility. When I started writing seriously, I stopped drinking. Because it couldn't think properly. So that was it. It was either like you're going to do one of these. The other. You're gonna continue wasting your time. I was having a fine time. I was in graduate school and and had a very social. I was very, very social and a lot of that involved drinking and and that sort of thing couldn't do both. Especially when I was editing. I couldn't get my thoughts down, pristine leeann, precisely enough. Plus the emotional magnitude of the things that I was dealing with were more overwhelming. If I was in the aftermath of party. So decided I was like twenty five or so to just start. I've been caught off guard by how politicized you've become an I. As I read of your youth, I know that you had your run with religion, which a lot of people do that. She got politically active, but on the left, not the right. Help me understand what went down. Well, I in in the little town. I grew up in the member of parliament. The provincial parliament quivalent American state was a democratic socialist. He was the only one in the entire province. Everyone else was conservative, which would be sort of moderate Republican, I would say, and. You know, there's something to be said for political voice for the working class and for the dispossessed, and it certainly is the case that hierarchical structures, higher structures that compose our society do produce dispossession. They stacked people up at the bottom. And so people at the bottom need to have a political voice in. So I was very attracted to that end of the political spectrum. But as I came to investigate some of the problems I've been discussing more deeply, I started to understand that mere economic rectification was insufficient that that wasn't the level of analysis that was appropriate for my inquiry anyways, translated redistribution of income. There's a work. Well, think about it this way. The guaranteed basic income idea. It's like, well, that's predicated on the idea that man lives by bread loan. Well, that isn't how it works. And I certainly seen that my clinical practice I've had clients, especially addicts. If you gave them money, they would die. And the reason for that one guy that I remember in particular, I liked him quite a bit. It had a bad cocaine problem. And as long as he was flat broke. He wasn't dead, but as soon as his, he was on disability. As soon as disability check came in, he was face down in the ditch three days later. So well, and you think, well, maybe that's a consequence of his overwhelming poverty at cetera. You could come up with some social reason for the that path that you talk, but it wasn't by any stretch of the imagination that simple. It's like people need purpose more than money even. I mean, obviously we don't want people starving and actually we're doing pretty good job of solving that problem where wide, you know, the UN projects that there won't be anyone in absolute poverty by the year twenty thirty, which is really quite the bloody miracle that's for sure. So we're doing pretty good job of getting rid of abject privation, but then it isn't the provision of material well-being with ease that allows people to live properly even though a certain amount of material. Wealth is necessary, precondition its purpose. That's a much more difficult problem to solve. It's like we need something to grapple with. We needed meaning to justify our lives. And some of that is to be found in while the struggle against. Against privation and and malevolence the MIR. Offering of material sustenance to people isn't going to solve the problem. Dostoevsky new. This one hundred fifty years ago. He said, if you gave people everything they wanted. So all they had to do eat cakes and busy themselves with a continuation of the species. The first thing they do is smashed all to hell so that something interesting could happen..
