Capstone's Jared Asch Welcomes Loella Haskew and Cindy Darling of Walnut Creek
"Jared Esch, the host of The Capstone Conversation. Today, we are joined by not one, but two awesome women from the city of Walnut Creek. And we are going to hear about what inspired them to run for city council. What are some things that they want to encourage in other candidates who are considering to run or not to run as you make the decision ahead of next year's elections? And that applies to people throughout the whole East Bay area. That's not just here in Walnut Creek. So hopefully their message will resonate with people throughout. So first thing we will do, Mayor Pro Tem Luella Haskiw, do you want to go ahead and tell us a little bit more about yourself? In my career, I was a CPA specializing in tax, but I also did family law consulting and other business consulting. And I was inspired to run for a couple of reasons, one of which is I was close to many of the people who were on council and I just absorbed a lot of what they could accomplish by talking to them and watching them work. But also, I believe that we were going into an interesting economic cycle and maybe somebody who had my experience would be a good addition to the council. And our next guest is Councilwoman Cindy Darling. Cindy, tell us a little bit about your background and what convinced you to run. Well, I'm one of the newest members of the council. I was elected in 2020. Before that, I'd served 10 years on the planning commission for Walnut Creek. So I'd seen a lot of the issues that were working in the development end of things kind of bubbling up that were going to council. And I was interested in having a bigger voice on those than you just have a planning commission. I'm also a small business owner here in the city, and I spent most of my career working on really tough, naughty environmental problems around the Delta endangered species. And I felt like I developed a lot of skills there in helping people work together and solve problems creatively. And I wanted to take those skills and bring them to the council and help move Walnut Creek in a great direction. That's great. I appreciate that. Luella, you've been mayor two times, including 2020 during the start of the pandemic. Pandemic issues, businesses shutting down and then lots of looting here in Walnut Creek. What was it like to be mayor during that time? Can I say that the first round was was sweet. I really enjoyed the first time when it wasn't quite so stressful. But I will say about 2020, whenever I've talked to anybody who have had been mayor in Walnut Creek the last year to have been assigned a job with mayor, there were so many issues. We had a police shooting that was under scrutiny. We had looting. And I'm not even sure anybody knows to this hour what triggered the big looting that was at Broadway Plaza. It could have just been the gangs that were beginning to form and take over other places. But we forgot about Walnut Creek has some really nice high end stores to do. And then they all came. I don't think it had anything to do with the political choice. Nevertheless, it was incredibly damaging to the people who were at Broadway Plaza and it didn't stop there. Other people were involved in it. I make a joke about the fact that when George Floyd had been killed and people were really involved in making protests, a whole group of people showed up at nine o 'clock at night on a Wednesday and had a riot in our front yard doing a significant amount of damage to our garage doors, burning flags, scaring the bejeebers out of our neighbors. The police did call us and say, get out of the house. So we were safe, but it was an ugly experience for the neighborhood trying to find the best of the worst. We did have to buy a new garage door and we now have a battery pack up. And then I made it onto the news the next day. So good spads, but it was tough and the fiscal issues were tough. We started out with anticipating a comfortable excess budget. It turned out that when everything had to close up, sales tax went away and then we had to figure out what to do about that. And we got lucky that we came upon the pop -ups, the restaurant pop -ups, and we tried every way we could to save all the businesses, did away with our now famous parking meters and let people park. There weren't that many people using the parking meters. And so it was a very difficult time. Nevertheless, a sense of proportion, a great council, a great staff got the city through probably one of the most difficult years the city had to survive.

147: Peacemaking in Paris: The Treaty of Versailles - burst 2
"Today is a story of peacemaking, particularly 1919's of six -month Paris Peace Conference culminating in the Allied Powers Treaty with Germany, the Treaty of Versailles. And it has a lot of moving pieces. We'll start with the U .S. midterm elections of 1918, which could impact the Senate's future choice to ratify this treaty or not. From there, we'll join Woodrow Wilson, who's personally representing the U .S. at the conference, to push his 14 points, especially his League of Nations. But can the idealist American out -navigate Georges Clemenceau, who wants to punish Germany and dismantle its military capabilities? What about the smooth -operating Welsh wizard Britain's David Lloyd George? We'll find out as we hear what their conflicting values and goals yield amid talks of a League of Nations assigning quote -unquote mandates in the Middle East, Africa, and the Pacific as Georges and Woodrow's timbers flare over German and French territory. And of course, as we learn what this conference ultimately asks, sorry, demands, that the Germans sign in the Palace of Versailles Hall of

It's seven past. A titan of American foreign policy and a lightning rod of criticism has died. John Stoneless has more on the life and legacy of Henry Kissinger. The German -born Jew escaped who Nazi Germany with his father became one of the most influential voices in American foreign policy serving as the national security advisor and later secretary of state for President Richard Nixon. Here is a man who has the poise, the strength, the character to serve in this great position and that he can handle himself under considerable fire. He also served as secretary of state for President Gerald Ford along and with North Vietnam's communist leader, Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973, neither an award man embraced for initiating the Paris Peace Accords that ended the Vietnam War. In an interview with Bloomberg earlier this year, Kissinger acknowledged it wasn't a perfect ending. I honestly believe we did the best we could. Known for his German accent and thick black framed glasses, Kissinger's policy of detente with the Soviet Union helped pave the way for arms control agreements calming of the Cold War. There will be no international stability unless both the Soviet Union and United the States conduct themselves with restraint and unless they use their enormous power for the benefit of mankind. He used back channels to forge a relationship with China ending that country's isolation from the West and paving the way for President Nixon's historic visit there. He also was the first to conduct shuttle diplomacy to try and bring peace to the Middle East after the 1973 Yom Kippur War. But he policy and his of realpolitik had its critics, some of whom accused him of prioritizing American interests over humanitarian concerns, specifically massive bombing raids and the 1970 invasion of Cambodia that ultimately led that country to fall into the hands of insurgents that killed about 2 million Cambodians, as well support as for overthrowing democratically elected governments in Chile and Argentina with military strongmen aligned with the US. Those divisions evident when a 91 -year -old Kissinger testified before a Senate committee in 2015. Arrest Henry Kissinger for a long very few men in American history had the influence and power over foreign policy than Henry Kissinger did. He was 100 years old. John Stoleness, Washington.

Jared Asch and Teri Killgore Discuss Boosting Regional Economic Activity
"Mentioned earlier, the Diablo Valley Tech Conference that was held and in it, there was a large conversation of in the Diablo region, how do more cities work together? So of instead all about Walnut Creek, Concord, the Concord neighborhood weapons station, Martinez going to compete, even Brentwood, how could the cities work a little better together to attract and build a regional economy? That's a really great question. Well, I think the first step is to identify common interests, and there are some things that we work with the county economic development office on. Work with the East Bay EDA to meet monthly to share common interests. I think the challenge right now is that each of our markets is in a very different place in its maturity cycle. And so the advantage of each community is they have their own personality, they have their own vibe, they have their own unique assets. And so could we market more as a region? We certainly could. I think part of the challenge is that our communities are intentionally very different. And so we don't want to lose the quirk that what's so cool about Martinez and we don't want to lose the potential of the naval weapons station. But it makes it hard because they're in such different places in their life cycle. And so the tenants that Walnut Creek would be going after are different than if I were in Martinez that are different than the ones I would be trying to attract. So could we better share information? Yes, but I think more importantly, we need to identify what are those common interests. And one of them is just making sure that everybody knows the North 680 corridor is open for business. We are here and ready to help in any way we can to bring opportunity to our community. And I think it's a joint marketing effort, perhaps amongst all the communities, to Silicon Valley to say, guess what? Your workers live here, save them a bridge toll or two, save us all the miles that they're commuting and help us really bring the value of the technologies that have been unleashed in the last few years to bear by having some field offices, by thinking about the North 680 corridor as a secondary place for business, if not your primary place. And that's, I think, a shared message we could all partner on well.

A highlight from US Government Succeeds in Criminalizing Bitcoin Privacy | EP 867
"You You're against freedom Yeah, welcome to another episode of simply Bitcoin live your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution car breaking news culture medic warfare We will be your guide through the separation of money and say and today is one of those episodes We're gonna talk about the separation of money and state the US government's attack. Well, I can't say that that's not a fair characterization Some members of the US government took advantage of the tragedy happening in the Middle East to and their allies in the legacy corporate media to Take advantage of what's happening to really pass through this narrative that a Bitcoin and crypto was being used to fund terrorism and Then that led to the FinCEN which is part of the Treasury to recommend these Broad regulations that I have no idea how that is gonna be enforced But whatever that essentially would make it so that every single Basically every single Bitcoin transaction how it currently stands would have to be reported now after the fact it came out that the article Was blatantly false it was misrepresented and misrepresented the data, but that didn't matter right the FinCEN proposal stayed There's currently an open comment period which I highly suggest you get involved in just like leave your thoughts But it seems like they got away with it because essentially Without the proposal even being introduced. What ended up happening is that already some financial institutions are already blocking Certain Bitcoin transactions that are involved in coin mixing so if you samurai if you use wasabi and then you send that Bitcoin to a An exchange it might get flagged right now. There was a huge amount of backlash over the last week Basically putting the blame on the exchanges Or on some exchanges in particular But the thing is what you guys have to understand is that exchanges aren't banks right as long as there's the on and off -ramp choke point and as long as People are using legacy banks to buy Bitcoin That is a choke point and that is a choke point that governments are gonna take advantage of I think moments like these highlights the importance of really understanding How to use Bitcoin peer -to -peer how to download peer -to -peer or how to use peer -to -peer alternatives like bisque And like a steco huge fan of a beauty on is doing with the steco But yeah, this is part of it. This is part of the separation of money and state and the thing that aggravates me the most is The fact that they were able to really pass this narrative even though is completely false and Without it being even introduced Banks and financial institutions are taking these preemptive measures which is absolutely crazy and then it's the continuation of privacy, which is Completely against the fourth amendment in the United States, which is no unreasonable search and seizure That just completely got thrown out the window But I mean look this is Exactly what you would expect As you know, the the the example that I always bring up is like a wounded animal trapped into a corner That's when they get most vicious, right? and I think that whether is Elizabeth Warren's Freudian slip a couple weeks ago where she's Christine desperation Lagarde's when she's saying that the CBDC is coming and it's here to stay and there's absolutely nothing you could do about it Or whether she even gets caught saying the quiet part out loud saying that Bitcoin is an escape valve, right? There's multiple signs that show you That the powers of be the people that want you to use fiat currencies in the future of fiat currencies which are central bank digital currencies are Absolutely terrified of Bitcoin but most importantly not only are they terrified of Bitcoin They're terrified of people taking self -custody of their money which won't allow them to confiscate it easily either do either either through direct confiscation or Confiscation through inflation because that's really what inflation is at the end of the day.
A highlight from David Brooks on How To Know A Person

Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more.

All things Hillsdale at hillsdale .edu. I encourage you to take advantage of the many free online courses there, and of course, to listen to the Hillsdale Dialogues. All of them at hillsdale .com or just Google Apple, iTunes, and Hillsdale. Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt. Inside the Beltway this morning, I'm so glad you joined me. I want to talk with you about this book. David Brooks's brand new How to Know a Person, The Art of Seeing Others Deeply and Being Deeply Seen. David joins me now. Hello, David. How are you? It's good to be with you again. It's good to talk to you. David, I'm used to getting books, and I got yours for free. They get sent to me. I want to tell you I'm going to buy six copies of How to Know a Person, three for my children and their spouses, and three for friends who are no longer friends that I want them to read. I wonder if you've had other people tell you that they're going to be buying your book to give to other people. Yeah, thank you for being generous on Twitter about the book. I appreciate it. Yeah, no, I've had people buy it for all their employees. I've had people buy it for the families. I haven't heard about buying it for ex -friends, but it's a good strategy. It is. We just live in these brutalizing times. It is. And my book is supposed to be a missile directed right at that. It's about the precise skills of how do you get to know someone, how do you make them feel respected, seen, heard. How do you make them feel respected, seen, and heard? I know why my friends are not my friends anymore. It's because of Donald Trump. They thought me insufficiently outraged about Donald Trump, and I can't bridge that gap, right? I can't be other than what I am, which is I voted for him twice, and if he's the nominee, I'll vote for him again. But they don't understand it, and I don't know that they're trying to understand. I don't understand them either, but I think How to Know a Person has assisted me. So, congratulations. Let me also tell you, I told our mutual friend Bob Barnett that I was telling people about your book in Miami as I prepared for the debate, because my wife and I talked about one statistic in particular, one paragraph actually, on page 98. Thirty -six percent of Americans reported they felt lonely frequently or almost all of the time, including 61 percent of young adults, 51 percent of young mothers. The percentage of Americans who said they have no close friends quadrupled between 1990 and 2020. 54 percent of Americans reported that no one knows them well. That is an extraordinary raft of terrible news, David. Yeah, and I found it's hard to build a healthy democracy on top of a rotting society, and so when this people are filled with loneliness and sadness, it turns into meanness, because if you feel yourself unseen, invisible, there's nothing crueler than feeling that people think you don't exist, and you get angry, and you lash out, and we have these school shootings. We have bitter politics. We've got the brutality of what's happening on college campuses right now, where Jewish students are being blockaded out of classrooms or have the recipients of genocidal how to build a friendship, how to make people feel that you're included, and these are basic social skills like the kind you could be taught at like learning carpentry or tennis or something like that. It's how do you listen well, how do you disagree well, how do you sit with someone who's got depression, how do you sit with someone who's contemplating suicide, how do you sit with someone who disagrees with you fundamentally on issues, and I just try to walk through the basic skills, and in my view, there in any group of people, there are two sorts. There's diminishers, the people who stereotype ignore, they don't ask you questions, they just don't care about you, and then there's another sort of person who are illuminators, and they are curious about you, they respect you, they want to know your life story, and they make you feel lit up and heard, and my goal in writing the book was partly social, because we need these skills to be a decent society, and partly personal. I just want to be better at being an illuminator. I think it comes through in the book. I listened to your interview with Katie Couric and her colleague, who I don't know, and they were trying to get at a question a couple of times, I'm gonna try and land that plane. Why did David Brooks write this book? Well, I'll give you the personal reason. You know, some people, if anybody watched Fiddler on the Roof, you know how warm and huggy Jewish families can be. I grew up in the other kind of Jewish family, and our culture was think Yiddish, act British, so we had love in the home. We just didn't express it. We were not a huggy family. We were all cerebral up here, and then when I was 18, the admissions officers at Columbia, Wesleyan, and Brown decided to actually go to the University of Chicago, which was also a super cerebral place. My favorite thing about Chicago, it's a Baptist school where atheist professors teach Jewish students St. Thomas Aquinas, and so I went into the world of journalism where we just Frederick Buechner once put it, if you cut yourself off from true connection with others, you may save yourself a little pain because you won't be betrayed, but you're cutting yourself off from the holy sources of life itself, and so I just wanted to be better at being intimate with other people. I've heard you now three times, read in your book, heard you tell it to Katie, and heard you tell it to me, the anecdote about the University of Chicago, the anecdote about Yiddish and British, but what is new is you brought up Buechner, and I've never read Buechner. I now know his backstory, which is so tragic. You include it in the book. I did not know he had a tragic backstory that illumines his character for me, and maybe I will go and read it, but you're in interview mode. How many different book interviews have you done? Uh, probably 20 or more. I don't know a lot. You're definitely, I know what that's like, where you want to get through an interview, and you want to make sure that people, you land the point, and I want to get a little bit deeper than that. I want to find out if you're with your self -examination. There's been a David Brooks self -examination underway for a long time, but you have not yet written your book about God. Are you going to go there? Yeah, well, at the end of The Second Mountain, I wrote a book about my spiritual journey, and how I grew up, my phrase was religiously bisexual, so I grew up in a Jewish home, but I went to a church school, and I went to a church camp, so I had the story of Jesus in my God. And then when I was 50 or so, reality seemed porous to me. It seemed like we're not just a bunch of physical molecules. You know, I once, I was in subway in New York City in God's ugliest spot on the face of the earth, and I look around the subway car, and I see all these people, and I decide all these people have souls. There's some piece of them that has no size, weight, color, or shape, but gives them infinite value and dignity, and their souls could be soaring, their souls could be hurting, but all of us have them. And once you have the concept of the soul in your head, it doesn't take long before the concept of God is in your head. And so I went off, especially about 10 years ago, and it's still going on a spiritual journey of just trying to figure out what do I believe? And I learned when you're on a journey like that, Christians give you books, and so I got like 700 books sent to me, only 350 of which were different copies of Christianity by C .S. Lewis. And so that was my journey. And it didn't, it was very slow and gradual. There were some dramatic moments, but not a lot. But I realized, oh, I'm not an atheist anymore, and my heart has opened up to something. And I think this book is the extension of that. When your heart opens up to God, and if every person you meet, you think this person was made in the image of God, I'm looking at somebody so important, Jesus was willing to die for that person, then I've got to show them the respect that God would show them. I've got to try to see them with the eyes that Jesus would see them with. And that's a super high standard that I'm not going to meet, but it's a goal. And Jesus says, even in brutal, tough times, He sees people, He sees the poor. And the main thing He does is Jesus is always asking questions. Somebody asks Him a question, He asks them a question back. And that act of questioning, what you do for a living, that's a show of respect. And that's the doorway to seeing someone. And so to me, I think questions are a moral act that we're phenomenal at when we're kids. And then we get a little worse at it. And I come sometimes leave a party and think that whole time nobody asked me a question. And I've come to think like only 30 % of the people in the world are question askers. And so part of the thing I do in the book is just try to say, here are some generous things to do to ask people questions. It is a, that is the key takeaway, how to ask questions. And this is a skill set. I sent a note this morning to my friend, Jan Janur, who has been running a Christian ministry for 30 years called The Wild Adventure. He wrote a book called Turning Small Talk into Big Talk. And I was reminded of it. Yours is a longer, more complicated examination of the art of asking questions and why you want to do so. It's also, it reminded me a lot of C .S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory. You have never met an ordinary human being. Everyone is an eternal horror, an everlasting splendor, and you believe that and you get to it. And I want to talk about how one gets there, but I want to begin, interestingly enough, with a comment Katie Couric made you. And I listened to that yesterday. I'd finished your book last week and I made my notes last night. And then I listened to Katie Couric interview. She spontaneously brought up her interview with Sarah Palin. Why do you think she did that, David? I like Katie a lot. And she's been a guest on my show. I loved her memoir, at least the first two thirds of it, which was about her younger life, which I thought was fascinating. Why do you think she brought up the Sarah Palin interview? I was also struck by that because I don't think she talks about it enough. I know Katie from various things and I don't think she talks about it all that much. I think it was a time when she was asking questions and somebody just wasn't answering. It was a time when she was having a miscommunication. I imagine that's why she wrote up. Do you have another theory? I do. I think it's because she's been misunderstood because of that question and that she wants people who only know Katie Couric because of that question to know that that's not Katie Couric. And that, to me, it was it made perfect sense she used to be known. And that's the central theme of this. People want to be seen. They want to be known. And if you are known for the wrong thing, in this case, the Katie Couric Sarah Palin interview, you want to you want to get that off your cargo ship, right? You want that unloaded. And I thought, wow, you really the book worked on her. Let me tell you also, on page 134, you talk about face experiments with infants. I want them outlawed. David, what did you think when you read it? I think those are cruel and awful. Tell people about them. Yeah, so babies come out of the womb wanting to be seen. Baby's eyes, they see everything 18 inches away in sharpness. Everything else is kind of blurry because they want to see mom's face. And these experiments that you referred to are called still face experiments. The babies send a bid for attention. And the moms are instructed, don't respond, just be still face. And in the beginning, the babies are uncomfortable. And then after a few seconds, they start writhing around. And five within seconds, they're in total agony, because nobody is seeing them. And I really don't think that's that much different as adults. I think when we're unseen, it is just total agony. We're rendered invisible. And that's what I encounter in my daily life as a reporter. I used to go to the Midwest. I live on the East Coast, but I spent a lot of time in the Midwest. And maybe 10, 15 years ago, once a day, somebody would say, you guys think we're flyover country. In the last five years, I hear that like 10 times a day. And so a lot of just people feel they're invisible. And frankly, that's a little on my profession, the media. When I started as a police reporter in Chicago, we had working class folks in the newsroom. Our reporters, they hadn't gone to college. They were just regular people from Chicago, and they covered crime alongside me. Now, if you go to newsrooms, especially in New York, DC, LA, San Francisco, it's not only everybody went to college, everyone went to the same like 15 elite colleges, and a lot of the same prep schools. So if you're not in this little group, and you look at the national media, and you don't see yourself, it's as if they're telling you your voice doesn't matter. You don't exist. And that's a form of dehumanization that we've allowed to fester in this country. And of course, people are going to lash out. Yeah, I just spent two weeks with really wonderful professionals at NBC preparing for this debate. And at one point, I asked one of my colleagues in this exercise, I don't work for NBC, how many people do you think in this room voted for Trump? And taken aback, they did not answer because the answer is obvious. Nobody. And if if your newsroom is full of 100 % people not only didn't vote for Trump, but actually loathe them, you can't cover the country. It's impossible because you're not seeing the other 50%. And what your book is, I hope the newsroom is distributed as well. We are all about seeing people who have long been marginalized, and that is important. But if you don't see people who are supporting Donald Trump, for whatever reason, you can't cover the news. Let me ask you about this Philip Lewis fellow. I love him, because he finally gave me the courage to teach the do the Dormant Commerce Clause in the 11th Amendment with the confidence that even though my students are terribly bored, they have to know this. Where did you meet Philip Lewis? Because he's talking to teachers. Teachers need to read this book too, if only to be comforted in the fact that every teacher has this experience.

A highlight from Leftism is a Euphemism for Narcissism
"Hi everybody, Dennis and Julie, Dennis Prager and Julie Hartman. What number is this, by the way? I was wondering. I think it's 88. The speed of time. We were just commenting on that right before. 88 is correct. The irony is the wrong word. The interesting aspect of today is that we could speak for four hours. We would need perhaps a bathroom break, and then we would do another four hours. Because that is how much is on my mind, and you have a lot of stuff on your mind. As everyone knows, this Dennis and Julie podcast is not news -driven. We may make reference to something happening, but it's a free -for -all thought life, us. Extravaganza. Extravaganza, that's a good term. But I have to say that the events in Israel have been consuming, and I don't let myself get consumed. I'm very even -tempered, as you well know. I've worked on it all of my life, and I remain even -tempered now. I am watching evil of such magnitude, and vast numbers of people who support that evil. That is more depressing. Right. See, there were no pro -Nazi demonstrations. In the United States. Around the world. During World War II. Around the world. Yeah, exactly. Or even in the 30s. There were Nazis, but there's a tiny element, and they were regarded by mainstream people as morally defective human beings. But here, the announcement that a nation should be destroyed, and you have this mass support for that idea? There was a, it's interesting, there was not a tavern, I'm thinking in British terms, using tavern. Which, by the way, we should acknowledge that we were both in London. Yes, and we will get to that, hopefully, yes. But there was a, was it a diner, or some sort of restaurant in the New York area, I believe it was, and the owner put out pictures of Israeli kids who had been kidnapped. And his entire staff quit. Did you see this story? I did not, no. His entire staff quit, and a certain number of his patrons would not return. And word got out, and now he's doing better business than ever, because so many people are now frequenting his restaurant. But what does that mean? I mean, what was his staff composed of? That putting pictures of kidnapped Israeli kids is morally objectionable, that you quit your job? Well, we saw that at NYU, I believe it was NYU, could have been Columbia, but there was a university where students on their windows put up faces of the hostages, and they were torn down. And there was a video that I saw the other day where a member of the U .S. Women's National Soccer Team was driving in Los Angeles past a pro -Israel protest. She rolled down her window and raised her hand in the hall of Hitler. She was on the team. She's not. Oh, she's not now. Oh, okay. I thought she was now. It's really terrifying to see these people coming out of the woodwork, and they are so unashamed of their anti -Semitism. It means there's not that much stigma. Right. Well, Vivek Ramaswamy, the other night in the third presidential debate, which by the way, shout out to our company, Salem Media Group, for co -hosting, co -moderating that debate. He, and just to give another aside about Vivek, his opening line where he came – did you see this? Where he came after Ronna McDaniel, NBC for peddling the Russia collusion hoax. I was watching that, like cheering him on. That was the best line ever in debate history. Putting that aside, he had a really, I thought, great line too about anti -Semitism where he said that it reflects a greater rot in the society. That's exactly right. You say it with the canary in the mine. Right. That – There are noxious fumes. Yes. And so it shows the moral degradation of the United States of America in general. And how amazing, by the way, because we're supposedly so woke and we're so race -conscious and we're so, you know, people who are oppressed -conscious. And yet the fact that we're seeing this across the board in businesses, universities, individual people who are unashamed to come out with their anti -Semitism, I hope people are finally seeing the light, that this is a morally confused and morally corrupt culture that we're in. So I wrote an article, I looked it up, I didn't remember, 2015, so that would be eight years ago. Oh, was it – is this the Pakistan one? No, that's another one and that's totally worthy of noting. I wrote a piece, let me see if I can see it right now, and it was titled – God, it's really – I want people to read it because I would actually like to read excerpts for a moment on this issue. Let's see if I can here. Well, I didn't think I would be reading from it, so I didn't prepare it and I don't want to waste people's time, but it was an article about – remember when there was a huge influx of Muslims from the Middle East to Europe and the United States? So it was 2015 and I wrote, my heart breaks for a lot of these people, Syrians were being slaughtered en masse and Iraqis and ISIS and Syria, and I wrote, look, they're going to bring into Europe and – it was really about Europe – they're going to bring into Europe not everyone, obviously, but a lot of them will bring anti -Western values with them. People don't come naked, they wear their values, which is inevitable, if I moved somewhere I would bring my values with me.

A highlight from Biden has Weaken America; Country Must Have Change in 2024
"And they're finding out that, you know what, actually, the guy with the mean tweets was not that bad. Right. If it means we don't have a war in Ukraine, we don't have a war in the Middle East, we don't have, you know, an open border. In the ReliefFactor .com studios, here's Mike. Yeah, I remember these worldwide conflicts and war in the Trump era. In fact, I was just perusing the list of Trump's accomplishments a few days ago. Everybody can access that, incidentally. But if you text the keyword Trump to 800 -655 -MIKE, which is the MyPillow text line, we'll send it back to you. Kind of a good reminder of what was accomplished, what was done, promises made, promises kept. Four years of a period of our nation's history that was decidedly different from what we're experiencing right now, not only in this country, but around the world. Is it fair to suggest that world leaders feared and respected Trump? Didn't want to set him off? Is it fair to suggest that the world sort of laughs at the United States with Joe Biden at the helm? A guy who is now on the short steps of Air Force One because the big steps are too many steps for him to climb? And he's going to he's got four more years in him? Sure, sure he does. Sure he does. Like Tracy always says, my producer, the problem is Trump hurts their feelings. He gets in their head. Do you see him at Madison Square Garden over the weekend? He showed up at Madison Square Garden for one of the UFC fights. The place went bonkers. It was unbelievable to watch the crowd roaring its approval as Trump went out and he walked out with Tucker Carlson, which leads to a lot of speculation about a Trump Carlson ticket. It was it was quite the quite the scene that we've got a video clip of it, don't we, guys? If you're watching us here on Salem News Channel, what what number is it? I can't hear you. You got a whole 11. There we go. Cut 11. Let's play cut 11 as Donald Trump and Tucker Carlson, joined by the guy. What's the guy's name? That's the head of the UFC, Eric Dana White. And then there was somebody else. There was like four of them. Somebody like was a bunch, but maybe Kid Rock. And I mean, it was just quite the the rogues gallery. And here's what it was like when Trump made his entrance at a big fight, a UFC contest at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Taking his way into the building. One of the bigger mixed martial arts fans, I know, President Donald Trump taking his I mean, they are they are so terrified of him. And that's why. Because they're terrified of you. They're afraid of you and me. They're not afraid of Trump, they're afraid of the American people, Trump, as I've said a gazillion times, he's a movement, an America first movement that he unleashed.

I'm Rohan Nagani, joined today by the former host of the Open Floor Podcast. He's a senior staff writer at the ringer, Michael, the pod, Pina, Mike, how's it going? I am doing terrific, Rohan. How are you? Pretty good. Um, you know, just trying to suss out what you got going on in the background there. Mike's got a blurred background for the first time in the history of all our podcasts. Um, I can only imagine what you're hiding. I explained this to you before we started recording. I did not make my bed. It's a messy bed in the background. That's the only reason I didn't want to keep you, you know, waiting before we started recording. I know you're a busy guy. You woke up immediately before the podcast. Um, all right, Mike, I just want to run through basically as many teams as possible today. I know you're watching as many games as you can, and I want to hit as many teams as we can, but I'm going to just, I'm going to throw them at you in the form of some buyer cells. If that works for you. And we're going to start in the Eastern Conference. Um, just, just, we're going to rip hot right off the jump here. All right, Mike, buy or sell. The Sixers are currently the best team in the East. Like currently? Like today? As of this moment, I'm not talking about record. I'm not talking about any of that. I'm just, just vibes, feels, talent, et cetera. Uh, yeah, I, I'm, I'd have to buy, I, I would have to buy. They're playing great. They just beat the Celtics who technically have a higher net rating, but you know, that game could have gone either way, et cetera. Cut it off. It's a, hey, Kirstaps Porzingis wide open three with five seconds to go. It was also like a 13 point game with two minutes left and it took like a very, I said, I'm buying. I said, I'm buying. But then you immediately started caveating it very quickly. I'm buying, um, I bought it very skeptically. I love, uh, I think Nick Nurse's impact is pretty transparent to anyone who's watched this team play their offense, ball movement, pace, all that sort of stuff. Tyrese Maxey looks really good. One player of the week in the opening week of this year, player of the month, whatever player of the week. I don't even know. Whatever. He's been really awesome, um, averaging just all star numbers and efficient shooting splits and he looks really great. He is him, Luca and Jokic are the only guys I think at like 25, five and five right now are 27 something crazy. It's just those three guys. I got to look up what it is. Didn't know that. That's very impressive.
"east l" Discussed on C.G.Jung Helpdesk
"So the rest of our mind, one-sided, focused on specific things. While he saw a more elaborate and more inclusive view in the East. And he knows this even by the symbols. For example, we can see it here now on Zoom. Stefan took a completely correct symbol of being a young symbol, which symbolizes white and black. And even in each other, this symbol symbolizes two snakes that ring against each other. And those are the opposites. And the symbol already recognizes that black and white are not completely exclusive on each other. But rather, in the black, there's also white. The white snake is also the black snake, and also the other way around. So both are part of each other. It's an inclusive view. But in the West, it's only supposed to be one thing. So in stories in the West, when you have a dragon, you kill the dragon, you have to kill the dragon. Like St. George killed the dragon, Siegfried killed the dragon. Everybody has to kill the dragon, because the dragon is evil, and it's better when the dragon is dead. But when you, for example, look into China, the dragon is a good symbol. It's a positive symbol, because it's also potential. Same as the unconscious. When consciousness is weak and does not know how to handle the unconscious, it's frightful. That's when people then dream of white animals, for example. It's the instincts that just force themselves onto consciousness and break consciousness apart. So it's best to avoid them, because consciousness can't deal with them. So it has to be separated, just to have some small island of peace and quiet, right? While the storm is raging outside. But in the East, the dragon is a friendly thing. It's the potential. It's a thing you can build a relationship with. So in the West, the story is over when the dragon is killed. But in the East, it's different, as it gets more integrated. It's not clear what is good and bad, but all the things belong to each other. He notes that in the Indian pantheon of gods, it's not unusual to have the evil gods and the good gods sitting at the same table and living with each other. That's no problem. This is already recognising. There are opposites, but that does not mean that one side is bad, but rather all sides are necessary. But Western tradition, we have the devil and he should stay in hell, not get out. And when we see him, we should get them back to hell as quickly as possible. This is how you can see it in stories and certain ideas and symbols, these states of minds. So he also notes just how, let's say, religion looks like. And there's a stark contrast. Christianity, the church is basically surrounded by a graveyard. Everything is dark and dead and not very joyful. Religion is not a joyful thing. You have a cross and you're supposed to bear it just like Jesus. But in the East, it's colourful, more celebratory and more, let's say, hopeful because it is more integrated of all the things. It's not necessarily naive, but rather all the things are accounted for. So you don't have to be afraid of the things that are taken care of, let's say, psychologically. And one other very interesting part that he talked about was, in the West, we talk about you have to make something out of yourself. You have to choose a career. You have to do something. You can do everything you put your mind onto, which is a conscious statement, a willpower statement. You can be everything you want to. You only have to will it. Jung was more oriented towards or, let's say, convinced by the Eastern notion that you have some kind of fate or role to play in the grand scheme of things. So there's a life path there already for you. And the most truest thing and the most correct thing that you can do is follow those individual paths. And this path can also mean that you're a thief, right? This is the fate of your life, that you're a thief or a bad person. But being truest to yourself and, let's say, to the universe and the rest of everything that exists would be to fill this role out completely. And this is what Jung also means with the individuation process of going towards the self. It's living out one's individual life based on the circumstances what one has, which is one's psychology, which is always the starting point of everything. So we have the East, we have the West, and they're on opposite things about specific topics. One is the shadow of the other. He said it's not possible really to substitute one for the other. He said it's always interesting to go outside in the far world and see what's there. That's way more interesting. And when something is in your unconscious, it's also your psyche screaming out that you should pay attention to it and spend more time with it. And he said what happens in the West, because basically the Western religion broke down. The whole symbols, rituals, traditions, and so on are maybe still in the collective unconscious, but they are not conscious enough to play a big role. People started looking to the East and being fascinated by that because, of course, it's in their shadow side, in the unconscious. But trying to take this as a Westerner, he said it's not really possible. Because on the one side, you have these 1000 years elaboration about certain things, and somebody who's not coming out of the tradition trying to take it from there and integrate it in their own life, he said very likely it will be misunderstood and you will start focusing on the wrong things in your psyche because you have psychological needs based on your individual psyche. But also, as I said before, you have a family psychology, you have, let's say, state psychology and a cultural psychology, and all those layers have specific needs that need to be taken care of and need their own solutions. It's like copying someone else's homework. It's like, yeah, you have now something, but the question is how much this will really help you. And he had this example of yoga. He said, the Western people, and this is a view from 100 years ago, I don't know how yoga is not practiced in the West now, and if you were to prove that, but he said it's a complete Western way of thinking, operating again, taking this thing and just, for example, going through the movements and doing every day for half an hour and doing 10 positions, 15 positions, and so on, being, again, completely focused on certain things, completely focused on the action and conscious willpower, doing things. The sense of yoga is rather to explore a meaning and to travel on psyche. And he said this introverted view is rather missing in the West, so this is not a helpful thing. And of course, there's all these shiny things, and they seem to work in their context, but it's hard to take them out of their environment. It's just like taking an animal from a specific environment to another environment, it cannot flourish the same way. So he warns about that multiple times that Westerners should not do yoga, but he noticed that there's a specific reason why Westerners are interested in all these Eastern ideas, because there you have still a functioning proper system. And this is already intriguing, and this is missing in the West, in his eyes, which caused a lot of the atrocities of the 20th century, because all these archetypal unconscious forces came out, and there was no healthy way to integrate them. So the dikes were too low, and the flood came and flooded just everything, and it's carnage and mayhem. He even fell a little bit into that spell. So he traveled a lot of India and into other parts of the world to experience this. And his unconscious told him that he might be doing something wrong, because while he was in India, he had a dream about the Holy Grail drowning in the English Channel. And this dream had shook him up so much that he immediately returned back to Europe and said, okay, I'm spending a lot of my time with all these foreign cultures, but my own culture has a problem that needs to be taken care of. And he sees these developments that in the East took place thousands of years ago, also taking place in the West, but in a different way, because every cultural need is different. So for him, the reaction of Christianity in this extreme spirituality was alchemy, with having your psyche projected into the world, having individual personal revelation about things and experience the psyche oneself again. He even calls alchemy the Western yoga, that this is the Western style, how to explore the psyche. Yoga was for the East, how to explore the psyche, but in the West, he said it's alchemy where these ideas then came up that then can form the culture and creating new symbols and new institutions. As Christianity was winding down, alchemy grew up. And interestingly enough, out of alchemy, we made science and have all the amazing things that we have and all the problems of course, too. This example that I've said before, that he sees Eastern philosophy as a way of psychology and actually psychology, we now have psychology as a science. So this is our exploration of the psyche to get into there and to fill up the need, which was abandoned before, because before you had the church, it took care of the unconscious and psychology and everything was fine. But as soon as this fell by the wayside, people experienced the individual psychology again. And this is why now people are so interested in psychology because they experience things that they normally would not experience. Would there be a functioning system in place? So we are building a new system up again through psychological investigation, for example, because we cannot go into the past the same way as we can't just take the things from the East. We also cannot just take the things from our past and say, oh, yeah, I'm just like a Christian again or I'm just a pagan again. It doesn't work like this. So it has to be growing out of the unconscious and from below and building something on top of that. So it cannot be this layering. I will force myself to believe something. I will force something on top of myself, but rather it has to grow out of myself this natural kind of way. So he is still hopeful for the West. And he says people dream of mandalas. And this is something individual. While in the East, you have this whole systems about mandalas and they are very elaborate. It's very that you have their complete tradition. And here people are trying to put it up themselves. It's not yet ready to be a temple, but it will develop like that. And the Western psyche, of course, will also develop. And it's not a race. It's not a competition. It's not about, oh, the Eastern mind is better. And so they won, for example, but rather it's always this idea of you have certain psychological needs and you have certain psychological necessities and those have to be taken care of. And there are individual solutions necessary. It's the same as, for example, therapy or living one's life. There's not the solution for everyone. It's rather everybody has to find their own solution in a sense. So this is concluding what Jung thought about specialties about the psychology of the West and the East. And he has several books about it. There's one when people are interested about Kundalini Yoga. He just talks about that and says, oh, this maps very nicely on individuation because he says it is not completely unique. There's something always underlying. And this is our psyche. It's just expressing itself in different ways. It can be in an Eastern way. It can be in a Western way. It can be in a dream. It can be in a myth or hallucinations. All comes out of the psyche. And if you look close enough and you can compare enough, you can see, oh, there's not so much new under the sun. It might look different when you're on surface level, but deep down, it's then all connected and very much the psyche.

"This is the West, and in contrast, there's the East. And when Jung talks about the East, he mainly talks about the Indian philosophy and Chinese philosophy, especially Chinese had a big influence on him when he got interested in alchemy. So there was one book that completely changed his life, and that's an alchemical treaty from China called The Secret of the Golden Flower, where he noticed, oh, alchemy is very interesting and he dedicated his life till he died, investigate an alchemy, but he also spent a lot of time with Indian philosophy, like Kundalini yoga, and all the different ideas in there. I have to say I'm not so well versed in Eastern concepts, so I will not use them too much, because very likely I will use them incorrectly, since I also had a hard time to understand and remember them. It's the same just growing up in a certain cultural context makes it easier to then later work on top on other things than on things where the foundation is missing. He traveled there himself also, and this was a very specific time and place in Europe when Jung was alive, because there was a huge influence suddenly from the East, because all those texts, like the chemical treaty from China, got translated into languages that Europeans could read. So it already started at Schopenhauer, that a lot of ideas from the East would come to the West, but like the floodgates opened around when Jung was alive and Jung was working, because everything that's translated, you had the means of transportation to quickly get there. So this let the world grew closer together, and Jung traveled to India and talked to the people there. Interestingly enough, he did not talk to the clergy. He did not want to talk to them. He wanted to talk more to the common people, to understand them, because he had the feeling that the clergy might be too institutionalized. He wanted to see more the everyday man and how they lived out their psychology, basically. And what he noted about the East, and let's say the state of India, is that you have an uninterrupted culture that built on top of each other. That means in India, really, you have these 5,000 years of uninterrupted cultural thoughts and elaborations on the ideas. And exploring the psyche is very, very difficult, because people have to live through it, they have to codify it, and they have to spread it, and then it has also to be understood. He said this process, of course, also exists in the West, but the West is separated strongly through the Roman Empire. But there you have still the same gods, and you have the elaborations building on top of each other. It's a huge difference if you talk about something 5,000 years or 2,000 years. So he saw a greater understanding of psychological processes, a more codified way. And a more, let's say, further exploration and representation of the complexity of the psyche. He saw that there are certain ideas that show a bigger psychological understanding. For example, the self. That's a concept where he took the name from Eastern psychology, because it's easier to find there than in the West. And the self means the totality of the psyche, of the conscious and unconscious components that show the harmony of all the conflicting things. He says that the psyche itself is something conflicting, and people's forces are constantly in contact with each other and in conflict with each other. And the West would rather try to separate that and say, okay, I have only one part of the psyche. That's correct. I only spend time with that. And the easy awareness is there that all the parts are necessary. And the self symbolizes that the self combines all the opposites, and in that sense, creates a higher state of consciousness. He also saw that there was a more living out of the instincts, while in the West, the instincts are repressed to create consciousness and to maintain consciousness. He saw that people were more in tune with instincts and, let's say, archetypal forces, as they had the terminology and the rituals and the institutions to actually facilitate them and manifest them in a positive manner. Because an archetype just coming up is very archaic. It needs to be taken care of in a ritual, for example, or in a tradition that brings out the positive things. And I have an example for that. So many years ago, I read the biography of Steve Jobs from Walter Isaac. It's a very interesting book because it was an incredibly driven person obsessed with simplicity. And there was a time when he went to India, and that had this huge influence on him. The big influence on him was that he had the feeling that people were living very intuitive. They were in tune with their surroundings, and there was not so much doubt. They were just living their life in an intuitive way. And he wanted to bring this intuitive way also to the West. And he wanted to do that through products that he would sell. But that's just the Western style. And I think this is comparable to what Jung said when he said in the East, for example, in India, it was more seeable that they work in their instincts. For him, Eastern philosophy and the whole metaphysical realm that exists there is psychology, and it's an elaboration on psychology. The same as he sees that every product of the psyche tells something about itself. And what his goal was, was to explore all these products of the psyche to understand the psyche better. So what he saw, for example, for Kundalini Yoga, it would completely map onto his ideas on individuation. This is the journey which I described from unconsciousness to consciousness to integrating all the forces and the final result in the self. This is individuation. And he saw just as a culture being better set up in the East to go this whole way. So it's interesting when you think about it, because in the West, it very much ends with the death of Jesus, who was 34. And this is the logical endpoint for the West. We are obsessed with youth. We are obsessed with the early life. And as soon as people hit a certain point, there's nothing for them really there. He noticed this in his practice that he said people after their midpoint in life have pretty specific psychological needs. And there are no really institutions or schools for adults, let's say. And we educate children, teenagers, young adults, so that they can get to work, they can marry and buy things on the market, and then it's done. There's nothing else there. So even Jesus died at that time. So it's like there's not really a role model in the West. But he said in the East, it's way more clear what the whole life is supposed to be like. And he mapped Kundalini Yoga on the chakras, and the chakras really saw in different parts of the body where the mind is situated. Like he would say, for primitive, we scientific people, the seat of consciousness and the mind is in the belly, because the belly speaks. You get hungry, but also when you have a bad feeling, you feel it in your stomach. So when he would talk to primitive people, for example, in Africa or somewhere else, they would say they're thinking with their stomach, right? And when he would go somewhere else, they would also complain about the Europeans, about the white people, that they were saying they are thinking with their heads, which is kind of stupid. That's also not where the mind is. So this Kundalini Yoga, this moving through the different chakras, having different places in the body where the mind resides or what the focus, let's say, resides of the current state of being. This is mapped also onto this developmental time of groups and individuals. So that was the East and the West. And the next thing is, of course, how do they relate to each other? And for Jung, they relate to each other in a very, very interesting way, because Jung has a concept he calls the shadow. And he says you have consciousness, which is very often light, and everything which is not consciousness is very much shadow. It's in the dark. So a shadow is always a relative thing. It's relative to the light. It's not an absolute thing, but rather when you shift the light, the shadow also moves. That's always there. It's the opposite. It's everything you did not take into account and you did not take care of. As soon as consciousness focuses on one thing, all the other things move into the shadow. And what he sees is this really shadow opposite relationship between the East and the West. So for him, the East is the shadow of the West, but also the other way around. So this is a really interesting path. So for the East, for him, is the West, the shadow part. So what we have in our conscious being and how we behave below all the things we're not taking care of, they're very similar to the East, he says. For example, Chinese. So in our conscious, we are very close in the dark parts to how the Chinese metaphysical model and philosophy works. But he says on the flip side, in the Chinese or the Indians, in the unconscious, there is likely some Western understanding of the psyche and of the mind taking place. And he has a lot of examples for this opposite relationship. And the number one thing he says has to do with causality, which is the mode of operation the West, and synchronicity, which is a concept which is really hard to get for Westerners. I know because I tried and I always try to explain it. Causality is easy. It's A causes B causes C causes D. You have a temporal, logical flow of events and one thing causes the other. Synchronicity is a causal relationship between things. Things have a meaning because they happen at the same time. They do not have a logical connection. This is obvious through causality. This means a lot of these, let's say, foretelling techniques that people might know have to do with the fact that something in the moment is of the moment. There's this Chinese foretelling technique called the I Ching, where you have a lot of sticks and you just take them as a bundle like this, put them on the table, and let them go. And they fall, of course, through each other, we would say, randomly. But there exists a book to it, which is kind of the manual, where you look through and you try to find a pattern which looks similar to the pattern that you have on your table. And this will tell you something of this moment. Because it happened in this moment, there's something maybe happening on the other side of the world, which is kind of influencing this thing. So this, the sticks lying through each other in that relationship, relates to everything else happening in the world right now. And this is synchronicity. It's hard then to draw a conclusion. We have a similar thing with parrot in the West, or like tea leaf breeding and the intestines of animals, so something that was done in the past. It tells you something about the situation, like a unique insight, which is not causally logical. So for him, the Eastern mind sees more meaning, it sees more of a bigger picture, how everything relates to each other. So when, let's say an example, when a restaurant comes to the beach and sees there's a hat lying on the beach, the question is, oh, how did it come here? And then the person sees, oh, there's a boat driving by here and there are people on there, they're having fun. Likely, they came in the wind and it put the hat here on the beach. So then the Western mind had me. There's a logical, oh, there was somebody on the boat, they had a hat, there comes the wind, they took the hat and put it on the beach, and now I found the hat here. So everything done, causally explained. But he said, for this synchronistic view and this Eastern way of looking at the world, it's how does it relate that there's a hat, right? There's a couple sitting over there further. There's a broken tree close. There are certain fish in the river and how, for example, the stars or the sun are aligned, right? This all tells you something about this unique, specific situation and time. And this, of course, is not really combinable. You can't combine causality with synchronicity. And this is a different way how the psychology works in this mind. Also, that the Western mind is very outward orientated, very materialistic orientated towards very specific things. While in the Eastern tradition, it's more inward. It's so inward that in India, there's also the idea that the world is actually dreamt up by God. It's more like an illusion, the outside world. So it does not be taken too much into consideration because it's more a dream. It's not really real so much in the sense as a Westerner would take the world for real. But this creates also this enormous drive to go outside and take things. So he sees a psychological need in the West that people try to find outside what they can't find inside because there's so much oriented to the outside. So it's a restlessness that he knows when people come to, for example, Africa or South America and so on. And it's all the white people causing trouble and infecting people with their restlessness, as Jung said. It's also the idea of what is taking the supreme position. And this is then consciousness in the West. Like, okay, willpower, doing things, achieving things, being oriented towards things, always being productive, always working. While he said in the East more, it's like also letting things happen, just waiting. And it can be seen in the different symbols of the self. Jesus is a symbol of the self in the West. But Jesus suffered tremendously. And he died under the most horrible circumstances that he even forgot his own existence. Like he even had doubt in God, even though he's a son of God and he is God. But the pain was just too much. In the East, the Buddha sits on a tree and becomes enlightened. Of course, after living a very interesting and important life. But this is a big difference between the West and the East, like the individuation process for the West, it's dying on the cross. And in the East, it's sitting under the tree, and then it's going to be revealed. And then you're coming on this higher sphere of consciousness.

"This is as there's been the dominant mode in the West for almost 2000 years. So Jung says it's special about the West is that you have these primitive societies, pre-scientific societies like the Romans or the Germans and the Egyptians and so on, as they have their polytheistic gods, they have their superstitions, like dream reading is still of importance and has an influence. You have revealed knowledge, there's lots of time and also new religions popped up. And with Christianity, this changed a lot because the focus of the world changed. When you looked at the Roman people, they were incredibly achievement orientated, aggressive, expanding people who cared mostly about achievement and goals. And slavery was a big topic, like 90% of the people in Rome at one point were slaves and only the other people were Romans. So it wasn't very much in-group, out-group way of thinking, out of which Christianity grew as a counter impulse. Because Christianity is not really goal orientated on an individual basis, it's not about getting rich, getting land and all these other things, it's a spiritual movement. It's rather denying of the materialistic view of the world and trying to find the kingdom of God but rather within. This is why the Jewish people did not like Jesus because they waited for the Messiah to get their own kingdom and then came Jesus and said the kingdom of God is within you and they said, yeah, but we really want a real kingdom here. So what this means, this set the West on a track for a rather spiritual movement that grew out of a specific situation, especially the Roman Empire, as a contrast to that. Because it was, how Nietzsche would call it, the slave mentality. It was a mentality of those who had no place in society, which then told people, okay, everyone is important. Not only Romans are important, like in ancient Egypt only the Pharaoh was important and Rome was important, Christianity came and said everybody is important. This grew out of specific circumstances but was carried out and ironically by the Roman Empire into the rest of Europe, especially the Germanic tribes. In a weird twist of history, the Christians were pursued aggressively by the Romans and like 200 years later after killing Jesus, the Roman Emperor said, okay, yeah, by the way, I'm Christian, everybody else should be. It reminds me a little bit of the scene in Star Wars when you have Obi-Wan Kenobi, the wise old man fighting against Darth Vader, the first Star Wars movie, and Obi-Wan Kenobi says, okay, you can kill me but I will become more powerful than you can think of. And of course Darth Vader kills him. And to think further than, oh yeah, 200 years later, the Empire, by the way, says everybody should be a Jedi and Obi-Wan Kenobi is the greatest guy in the world. So it's a completely switch in a short period of time which changes the Roman psychology and pushes Christianity into the areas of Europe, which is northern Europe mainly. Why do I say that? This has a problem right down the line, hundreds and thousands of years later, because for Jung these are already a critical condition for the West, because Christianity was forced on the primitives. The primitives, they had a religion and this religion got subdued and it was a pagan religion. It got subdued and they were not supposed to pay attention to that and all these things were burnt and put away because their psychology was outside and the gods were outside, and the stone and the river and the house, whatever. These are things that can be destroyed very easily and this can also destroy this pagan religion. So you have still people with completely pagan roots, there's something being put on top which is Christianity, which not grew out of that soil, it's just being put on top. And this leads to this notion of saying, oh yeah, you have to believe, you have to bring yourself to believe. This is a conscious notion. You have to bring yourself to convince yourself to believe something. It's not growing naturally out of the psyche of the people, but rather it's something that's coming on top down, and this causes a rift. And this rift played out over hundreds of years to the point where Protestantism came along with a point where people could finally read the Bible themselves, they were not dependent on the church anymore. And of course everybody started to interpret the Bible by themselves, creating 500 denominations of Protestant Christianity. There's only one Catholic church, and they have the upper hand, you can only understand Christianity and the world through what the priests are saying, what the Pope is saying, and there's no individual revelation, you can't really have dreams, God should not speak to you because the church will search for you and try to kill you, and maybe after a hundred years, hell yeah, actually he was a saint and it was the voice of God, but that's what a murder is. And this is then already a splitting with Protestantism as it puts more and more focus on the individual. It's up to the point where everybody is their own church, like the groups get smaller and smaller. Jung says for the Catholic people, they can put their psychological needs into the church and everything is fine, but the Protestants, they are along with their psychology, don't have the pagan roots anymore to find their psychology outside and to act with it, and they cannot find it in the church, so more problems ensue, and we saw it with the Thirty Year War and the slow death of God and this metaphysical underpinning of the West, which is like a layer of civilisation which was pretty thin, and for Jung, he saw it pretty much in the First World War and the Second World War especially, that suddenly all those was a pagan movement, suddenly all those ancient ideas and forces came out and there was no really protection against it in the sense of, let's say, a spiritual institution. He says religion is a safety mechanism for the psychic unconscious forces to channel them and the correct way is to also inform people about them, so symbols, dogmas, rituals, all these things are important for psychic health, but these things declined because 2,000 years before the Romans came and just put it on top of the pagan people, especially the Germans, who started the First World War, started the Second World War, and introduced a lot of other interesting ideas into the world such as communism. So this puts the West in a very weird position, as it's different layers that are not really connected to each other that are forcefully put there, let's put it like that. Of course, Christianity, very important, even Nietzsche, who was, let's say, completely against Christianity, as he called it, the slave mentality, created the possibility that there, let's say, is an operating system installed of a huge amount of people that can say this is the way how to see the world, because everything was the devil, everything pagan was the devil, everything individual was the devil, but you had one way of looking into the world and train the mind and focus the mind and develop consciousness, and this is a very hard and difficult way to do it. It's the same thing as when you have a small child and it has to learn to sit down at school for eight hours. It's agony, and it takes a long time to get to the point where it all comes automatically. So what happened to all the gods? The gods were far outside, they were on the stone and the tree and the river, and they could be experienced that way. Then they got bundled into one god, and this god was an ethereal and, let's say, a frightful god, the god of the Old Testament. And with time, this god came down and became a human being, which was Jesus. And then, of course, this devolved in Protestantism to other people. Now everybody is kind of god, but there's not much to find, which is, let's say, outside of the people. So there's not any outside point of reference anymore. This will be an important point when we talk about these. So having this, let's say, established way of consciousness, which is still limited because it's still something that is formed and still focused on certain things very much, there are some drawbacks to the Western set of mind, according to Jung. He says the Western mind is very focused on surface things and on words and on actions. So it is not there really investigating the meaning because the meaning is not yet experienced because it was also suppressed for a very long time to create something as consciousness because you have to take away things to actually have something. It is a rather cold, disconnected rationality, and he saw that really in the World Wars. He saw the world without planes and people not being able to fly and dreaming of flying, inventing flying, and the first thing what they do is bomb cities. And he said, that's modernity. This is the rational mind wrecking havoc. And consciousness is always something limited, it's not complete. It should strive towards completion, it's pushed towards completion, but it's always an intermediate step that is limited. So he says, because consciousness, just like for a child or for a pre-scientific society, is something very feeble, unstable, a lot of things have to be repressed, especially the unconscious, not to make things too complicated, and also the instincts. So his view was that in a Western mind, instincts are used mainly to fuel consciousness. And if you look, for example, for monks and similar things, it's the denial of certain instinctual forces in hope to foster more consciousness and being then closer to God by ignoring a lot of other things and depriving oneself of that. So it is striving to more willpower, to establish more consciousness, but at the same time of course becoming more restrictive, because less things are taken into consideration that should be taken into consideration.

"This for Jung does not only happen on an individual basis. It happens also on a societal level. So he's saying in the past, human beings, just as a species, were unconscious in a similar sense as animals are supposedly unconscious. So consciousness is a product that came out of the human psyche by itself, a little bit like a miracle. And for Jung, the start of human consciousness is the start of writing, being able to reflect to externalize and to formulate something. For him, it's the beginning of consciousness and that part of culture where a lot of other things regarding our civilization grew out of. And for him, he calls it primitive, the primitive state of not being a value judgment, just being the word he uses. So I want to use another term to think about it would be pre-scientific or superstitious. Because a lot of things that are unique or primitives or primitive societies for Jung stem out of the fact that there's very weak consciousness, there's not so much willpower, it's difficult to concentrate long time on something. Also how the psyche is spread out all over the world even by saying, if you're unconscious about things, there's this effect called projection. That means instead of seeing that things belong to yourself, you see them outside, in the outside world and you think what's happening outside is something completely removed from you, but your perception is part of you. So he calls that projection and that can happen in that there are things outside that are part of your psychology and they're projected on top of the real world. But that's hard to see. For example, if you look, for example, for the ancient Greeks, they have the gods and the gods correspond very well with emotions, what we call today emotions. They say, okay, yeah, we have emotions inside. They attribute to gods that influence the people. If you read, for example, the Iliad, it's a lot of like, oh, this god gave me this idea and this god gave me these actions and the strength to do those things. So psychic forces that incite the people are being attributed to outside forces. This also means that knowledge is not being thought about and revelations come as insight from above. They just appear. It's not the product of a thought process that people are aware of. It's just it's popping in the head of people and consciousness developed similar as the consciousness of a child develops for our society by having basically institutions, educational programs, laws, taboos, rules that are forcing people to pay attention, to train this muscle and to be more efficient, even attributes the existence of taboos with people then actively have to use their mind to not do something. And this is always a tool of creating civilization. So while you have in the beginning this polyistic view, it then changes more to a monotheistic view. This is a way of the, let's say, collective psyche of a society developing through then again different stages. So what many people do not know and are not aware about when we talk about the individual psyche in the Jungian sense, there's always consciousness and then the unconscious where you have the personal unconscious and then comes the collective unconscious. And this is also most time how I explain it. But between the personal unconscious and the collective unconscious, there are additional layers. This is groups spreading out. So under your personal unconscious comes the unconscious of your family, like your family has a psychology and your family has complexes and neurosis that you can inherit. Like some people get a house, other people get a complex. And after that, you have societal psychology unconscious and then even a cultural unconscious. And all these different layers, they operate different because they're formed under different circumstances and they have different needs. And I will come back to this in the very end, but this is to already steer you in the right direction. So what does it tell us about the West? Because Jung really talked a lot about the West because he experienced a lot of things and the West as he lived through the First World War and the Second World War. So we cannot really talk about the West without speaking about Christianity.

"Hi, my name is Markus and this is a companion podcast for the C.G. Jung Help Desk Meetup Group. I host live events on Zoom every two weeks about the concepts and ideas of the Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung. Every event I give a presentation about Jungian concept, so have fun with this event's topic. All right, so good evening to this very special topic of Jung's views on the East and the East. There are differences. The first thing I want to start with is the general direction of Jung, what Jung was really interested in. And this sometimes causes a little bit of confusion because Jung was really interested in the psyche, how the psyche works, how it's built, how the psyche develops. For this, he was looking in all those different products of the psyche that we have, which can be dreams, can be visions, hallucinations, mental problems, but also fairy tales, mythology, religions, spirituality. So when people talk about stuff, Jung was listening. And it does not really matter to him who would say something. And you can see this in his life's work. He started as a psychiatrist with a psychoanalytic background, and his scope got bigger, bigger, and bigger. So in the beginning, he is the therapist, and he deals with the individual problems of people. And this scope expanded when he coined the term of the collective unconscious, saying, oh, this is even broader and wider than we anticipated the psyche. It goes deeper than the individual. It goes down into all human beings. This goes then up to the point where he spends a lot of time with religion and spirituality, with many people thinking about that he's talking about these things specifically, but rather he uses these things to understand how the psyche is and, for example, what the difference in people is when you look into the psychology of personality called differential psychology, meaning the difference between people. Because only when you have differences, you have actual points. Because in the same points where we're all the same, we don't need to talk about it. We need to talk about the differences. I say, make us different. So what I have to say is that, of course, Jung's views are old because Jung lived from 1875 to 1961. So many things he has written about, they are now almost 100 years old. So the world back then was a lot different. So when he talks about the West or the East, he doesn't necessarily talk about it in the sense that we have today because the world changed a lot, especially in the East. So that's the disclaimer from the beginning that this is his views on the topics that were back then. And Jung was very much looking at the past always. So when we look into the psyche and we think about how the psyche develops in an individual human being, we can see it in a child as a child, it's just a bundle of instincts and drives and it's acting and there's no control, there's no will really. There are things inside the child that want something. There's hunger inside the child, there's playfulness inside the child, and there's no coherent personality or goal-oriented action. So the child, in the Jungian sense, is completely unconscious, is driven by unconscious forces. And with time, it crystallizes something in the psyche of the child, which Jung calls consciousness. Consciousness meaning being aware and being able to willfully do things and to steer thoughts and actions towards the goal to do things and not do things. For him, this is something that is special about human beings, that they're able to develop this consciousness, not only to have it, but also to develop it. And as the child grows up, ideally consciousness becomes stronger and stronger and the child is able to work in the family, work in the group and then in society and learn something, expand consciousness and become more and more sophisticated in the actions. It's a huge difference if it's your first day at the job or you've been doing this job for 20 years. You've picked up all the knowledge, all the skill, all the routines and habits that make one effective in one's work. And this is a development of consciousness. With consciousness having one downside for Jung, it picks out a part of reality, focuses on that, because if you want to do something and you want to do it clearly, you have to ignore everything else in the world. When you're driving a car, you're thinking about basically only driving the car. And if you're very proficient, you can also think about other things. But the more demanding the task is, the more you have to narrow down your focus. And he said, because consciousness is this malleable thing, it can also be formed to do only one specific task very well. And this becomes an exclusion of the other parts of the psyche. And because people are supposed to be complete human beings, the other parts are pushing against consciousness to remind it, hey, you're a complete human being with a complete psyche. You can't only live in one way. You cannot only be thinking or only feeling or only be extroverted or only be introverted. You have to be all those things and you have to be proficient in all those things.

"Odyssey sports presents big time baseball. Let's move to the NL east. The mets, a little banged up. Obviously Verlander is on the IL. They've called up one of their top prospects. Talk, what can you tell us about where the mets are right now? Yeah, rough start, three and four, and that doesn't even tell it. I mean, they've been outscored by quite a bit. They started in South Florida, which is basically a home games for them, and their fans were clearly on their side. And did win three out of four, but they were outplayed outclassed and give the players credit they basically said that the brewers have played us in every facet of the game and they were absolutely right about that. I am a little concerned about the mets. One thing I talked to Max Scherzer about was the pitch clock, which, you know, he looked like he could use to his advantage in some ways, but I think being an older pitcher, it's not going to be that easy. It conditioning is going to be an issue for these guys who are over 30 years old and have to throw pitches every 15 seconds and then of course the innings while their team is batting our shorter two because the whole game has been speeded up and it was interesting to see that Scherzer was basically dominant for 5 innings in both starts, got lit up in the 6th, three straight home runs against the brewers in the 6th. Carlos Carrasco, same thing he was pretty good through four, not great, but pretty good. 5th inning he walked the first two batters and then he's out. Well, he's 36 years old. That's a waiting on Verlander who's 40 Quintana, who's 34. I mean, Scherzer basically said, well, it's on me. I've got to figure it out. He's making no excuses, but it is an issue, and he admits it. I think it's a problem for these teams that have pitching rotations with the average age is 34, 35, not going to be easy. Listen, I've been on the record saying, I think conditioning is going to be an issue, not just for older pictures, but for a lot of pitchers. It's a different ball game with the speed. And you bring up such a good point in between innings during the downtime when your team is up. Those innings aren't lasting as long. You don't have as much time to recuperate. And so, yeah, the conditioning and listen, it may not even rear its ugly head in April, but you get into June, July, and those hot months where the temperatures are hot, you're going to see a lot of dudes conditioning be challenged during this time. During that time of year, it's a little weird that it's happening for some of the veterans now. I think that has more to do with just April, not quite being as sharp as they would like to. But there's no doubt. Conditioning is going to play a major role in this. We'll have to see how it affects some of these other arms as they go down. Go through the season. Now, they called up Francisco Alvarez. Number 5 prospect, what are they expecting out of him? Well, they wanted him to be in the minor leagues to get some seasoning, which he probably needs. Even if he is the number one prospect, he is not an experienced player, and it was right to send him down to the miners and get him all that time as a triple-A player, mostly as a catcher, you know, and it's not going to be easy to come up there. And it's not an easy rotation to catch. You know, I think their mets are going to be out there looking for a catcher of veteran guy if they can find one. Now to call up because, you know, I know the fans are going to be clamoring. Why isn't he playing? Well, you know what? Defensively, he's not quite ready and that's kind of the most important thing for a catcher. So neato is going to be the primary catcher. I know the fans are going to have an outcry over that. But you know, I think they like him in the minors, Alvarez, I'm speaking of catching every day and this is really not optimal for the mets. If they can find an Austin romine or somebody like that out there to catch along with nito, that will probably suffice until a narvaez who had got off to a great start comes back. I mean, listen, you are talking about a very specific position that out of all the positions on the field can't handle inexperience. It's that position there, because especially with that veteran of a staff, I can see Verlander ensures or losing their mind, having to throw to a young inexperienced catcher, no matter how talented, how talented it is, he's got to be able to command a game. Forget the offensive side. That is where their bread is buttered. Is on the pitching side. That is true. I do think they could use some help offensively too. They've had a rotation at number 5 behind Alonzo. They burn players and diverse lineup, a lot of speed, a good hitters, but they don't really have a number 5 or a bed behind a line, though. I mean, you know, I mean, optimally Alvarez could do it, you know, he could be a big benefit offensively, even if he's a slight negative defensively. Let's stay in the NLEs, the Phillies, one of the surprise teams in the worst way, right? One is 5 to start to season. Things just haven't gone well for them at all. Although there does seem to be some good news coming out of their Bryce Harper took some live BP sounds like he could come back a little bit earlier than expected. Man, I just didn't see this start for the Phillies. I really didn't. Me and either, I mean, this is another one I'm not right on. I really love the Phillies. You know, I guess I was influenced by the WBC where one third of the lineup were Phillies. And that was an all star lineup. I mean, dev Turner. Me too. Warmer, real Muto, and we know we had Harper coming back. I thought he'd be back in late May. People were telling, they were just saying first half. It's going to be probably earlier than Lee may at this point. The guy is a ball player and give him credit. That lineup should be the

"Tyler here on this podcast because if he is as if he hasn't done remarkable things for my favorite basketball team and scored 37 against the Celtics in a playoff game, I'd like Tyler here. I don't think he's a bad player, but so the people like compare him to Donovan Mitchell and stuff and I'm like, please stop. But let's talk about the playing group in the east end. Because you have the nyx who ostensibly tried to get better this summer. You have the Charlotte hornets who were this upstart team last year, one 43 games, they have one of the kind of emerging stars in the league in lamellar ball. But now, again, it's strictly in a basketball context. We don't know what miles bridges availability is going to be like and it's obviously far from the important thing about miles bridges. It's much more important that the victim in that case finds some kind of reprieve or whatever it is that they're seeking, but I mean, we got kind of a weird jumble here. I think Detroit could be really good next season. I think Orlando could be really good next season. When you say next season, do you miss coming season? I mean this coming season Detroit Detroit can be play out playing frisky. Do you disagree? I am quite literally laughing at you. No, I do not think that they will be that there will be quite good this season or probably off. No faith in caves. No faith in cade. The Marvin Bagley reemerges. I like their young pieces, it's gonna take a second for that group to figure out how to play high level NBA basketball. Also, they're the pistons. That's the same reason that I think that the magic aren't gonna be any good because of the magic. History has borne this out. It's like, oh, this is the year for the Sacramento Kings. I got news for you. It's never the year for the Sacramento Kings. Similarly, those teams, I just don't think the pessimistic pacers in the magic are even in the conversation. It's the next the hornets and who do you think the wizards, who we have not mentioned, and who I think, depending on the health of Bradley Beal, Bradley Beal and KP for a season, could be a little frisky. Could be a little frisky. How many years has embiid been in the league now?

"John, give me your number four. This one's tough for me. And I know you're gonna make me pick a four and not have two, threes, or a three a, I'm going back and forth between these two teams. So tiebreaker goes the way that you probably expect. I'll take the nets at four, but it's very, very close with my three. Just because look, Kevin Durant is incredible. You get a full year, ostensibly of both Simmons and Kyrie Irving, you know, who knows. I just think that him not going anywhere. Yes, that whole off season was completely messy and they thought that they were going to implode the team and you can't underestimate the impact to the chemistry that could be potentially toxic. However, on paper, I just love the idea of those three being the big three where Ben Simmons isn't the one or the two. He can just be the Ben Simmons that we've discussed where you don't need him to take shots. You don't want to shoot, no problem. All I need you to do are the things that you are really good at, which is play defense, switch one through 5, rebound, get off the brake, be a good passer, and do all those other things that I keep coming back to him being east coast, Brooklyn, draymond. If he would embrace that role, that would really elevate that team and it allows Kevin Durant to be Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to cook. And now all of a sudden those ancillary pieces you get Joe Harris, who was obviously injured last year, he's in the mix, maybe you get a better year out of claxton. I like their ancillary parts if those three are healthy and on the floor together. Yeah, you just made my case for why I actually have the Brooklyn Nets at number three in the Philadelphia 76ers. At number four, I just can't quit the Brooklyn Nets. I really can not quit the Brooklyn Nets. At the end of the day, they have Kevin Durant, who is just one of the best basketball players in the world. They've typically been very good when he's been healthy. They've been very good when him and Kyrie have been healthy. And if you remember, back before this whole mess started, they were really good before they traded for James Harden. I mean, granted they had a lot more pieces than they had Jared Allen even though they were playing them behind Deandre Jordan. Blah, blah, blah, but they were really good with just Kyrie and KD is kind of their heads of the snake there. And I think they can be again.

He might actually have to step up pretty quickly with bobby mccain guns so this corners assuming saving howard stays or doesn't hold out that's a weird one because why talked about it with greg is like he's got so many years left you know it's complicated. And but yeah. There's eric rowe who converted safety and in his played well but like in the they brought in jason mccourty but i think i really liked holland before he opted out in two thousand nineteen when he played. I don't know if he's ready to step into this defense immediately but he might have to. He very well might have to. Because who else is going to you. i don't know if you're throwing. I don't know if you're ready to start mccourty up out there. I don't know if you know. Nee highly or tre williams if we're going to be naming we're speaking of great names in this past draft like there's there aren't a lot of their on a lot of other guys who are built for that that starting role right away but that's the that's kind of the the burden you carry when you go early in the draft when you go in the second round you very well might have to fill a an immediate role but it makes sense for them to run so much covers zero. That's why you put so much money into your defensive. Backfield specifically corner obviously with howard. I'm byron jones. And and noah i am not going to disrespect the man by mispronouncing his last name. Egg benign a believes ig monogamy. I mean so mad. If i'm messing up because i have actually. I have practiced this. I wished i he great name not great play last year by the way big manado and i know he ig monogamy sounds about right but i do know he got his welcome to the. Nfl moment against the bills and week to byron joan leaves with a hamstring injury. And he said okay. Go covers the on again. Yes that is tough to bounce back from and but it's a it's a valuable lesson that you know. This is not the sec anymore. Like you you're going to have to come bring it. But so i think the secondary is again turnover forcing i want to say that they led the league and turnovers last year. But i could be wrong. Which by the way. Because did the dolphins have a lot of things where you're like. Oh that really broke like they had a lot of weird special teams stuff turnovers and those are things. When you're looking to next year over. Your lincoln might not happen again. I mean i think their corners are really really good so and we'd discuss their aggressive. So they're they're probably going to get a fair amount of turnovers but a little bit concerned about some regression they're exactly like unsustainable figures just like you. We thought in a couple years ago with the with the patriots defense leading the league in intercepts and he figured they're not gonna get forty interceptions again. I know it's not forty. But you know i'm trying to say here. You figure they're not going to do that. So there's gotta be some room for regression but You know when you are a fringe. Playoff team last year in That's not really what you want to hear that you don't wanna hear about you know possible. Regressions are not being able to not being able to displace. What you're what you're getting from that from that russian I just can't i wanna do. I do want to take this opportunity to bring that little tidbit of history. Backup that this team needed to win one game against the bills. Who sat several starters. Not all of them. But several starters and lost by thirty. And i i'm curious. How much that motivates you going forward. Especially if you're too who played a horrendous game without ryan fitzpatrick available. I'm curious how much how much do you replay that. How much does that kind of. Burn into you as you prepare for the coming season man. That was i think that the optimists case for miami is that even if the dolphins defense regresses a little bit or many things don't go their way to a with a full off season in an offense a new offense in this great compliment skill players that he takes enough of a leap forward to where they go from being a fringe playoff team to an actual wildcard team. And it's totally possible. I'm the so wait and see on this team. I just got to see. Do you know what i mean like. I feel like i got a pretty good handle on like the bills. And you know the pats to some degree the defense but but the miami's a real wild card for me the final team. I actually on the jets. I i feel like the jets last. I have been asking people. I'm not gonna ask. You just probably looked at the depth chart so this isn't that fun. But i have been asking people who cover football for a living all morning. Can you name to jets cornerbacks and none of them could wow is. It is a problem for this team. I could name one before. I went and looked at the depth chart and then i looked at the other names. I was like damn i did not know this man the kiki palmer meam. I not know this. That is how i like the i feel. They drafted somebody. I really liked a couple years ago. I is the name i guess.

I still think it's him all day every day and i don't have anything waning on my confidence on that right now is when is going to happen right now. I think he's starting to show enough that. Hey i deserve a spot in his rotation for a chance. And i think that chance is gonna go just as long as he can continue to go out there and you know keep runners baffled. The biggest thing on his start the other day the balls around the ground instead of up in the air. So i think it's gonna to be great to see him in the next few days and weeks and whatnot here is Hopefully some of these other chips fall but to that point that what you mentioned about why he hadn't gotten that chance. I think they were really hoping that one of these veterans was going to run away with one of these rotations spots and they were going to have to use him later in the season and now with some of these other guys that we were just talking about their. they're moving up the rosser a little bit too.

"East Boston Neighborhood Health Center. The governor addressed the chaos on the North shore over at the Danvers, Mass. Vaccine site yesterday. This was late in the afternoon. Early evening, rumors got out that there were extra vaccines to give out, prompting people to show up by the hundreds. If you have an appointment Do everything you possibly can to keep it. And if you can't keep it, try to make sure that whoever the provider is that that appointment is scheduled with knows that you're not gonna be there so that they can act accordingly. Based on that. And if you don't have an appointment, you're not going to get a vaccine because that's the way the process is set up, and that's the way it's gonna work. It did not work that way Yesterday. We do have evidence that people who showed up showed up without booking an appointment first, and they were able to get the vaccine. The governor also addressed the issue of people posting online soliciting seniors to take them to site so they can get a shot. He called that disturbing. And the governor says senior should only be accompanied by people they know and trust. He says Strangers seeking to bring others for pay in some cases should be reported to the authorities.
