A Look at the Suspects in the Christa Helm Murder

"Let's look at the suspects for the police. Sandy Smith, Chris agent, and the person whose house she was murdered in front of. Definitely in the Hollywood party scene, potentially had mob ties and definitely was a shady character. The next suspects a guy named Rudy mosel. A drug dealer who was roommates with Blair aronson, the keyboardist who worked on Christa's disco album. And so I was to say that crystal was storing large amounts of Coke from azela and during that time she stole some drugs from him and he found out and got a bit violent toward her. Another crazy thing Rudy sprag that he was the one who committed the murder. Now we all know that there are false confessions that happen. They happen pretty regularly in murder cases, but this is one that I would take a little seriously. He wasn't looked at deeply at the time of Christ as murder, but when the case was opened back up in the mid 2000s, cold cased investigators found that Rudy had been dead for years so there's nothing they could do with that. I think he's the general favorite of whoever killed Chris to helm. But with investigators unable to interview him, there was no direct evidence linking him to the death. So the case is still unsolved to this day. What I would do is I'd like to know what sandy Smith saw. And why did he lie to the police? What's also interesting about this case is investigative found tapes among her possessions and audio recordings of her sexual encounters. I love to hear those tapes. Another fascinating possible suspect is Tony sirico. Pauly walnuts himself. The roommate Stephanie said that he showed up at their apartment right after the party to check on Chris as well fair, but that ended up not happening. And what ended up happening was he went to their apartment to steal fur coats and personal items of Kristin's. So Stephanie have always believed that it was Tony who initially stole Christa's tape recordings from her room after the murder. Why he did that? I don't know.

Liz Harrington Shares Her Assessment of the Republican Party

"My question is, how do you read the, you know, if we're going to beat the Democrats, we have to do it with the Republicans. There's no other way to do it. There's no other party to look to. My question is, give us a your assessment of the Republican Party, what needs to happen, is there a schism between the kind of maga wing of the Republican Party and the establishment does the one have to take over the other. Where do you see this going? Well, I think that disconnect is kind of similar. It's people that have kind of just been very comfortable within the system. A system that is status quo that's very corrupt. And that is not beholden to the people. And so where there's so much unity, though, is within the party. The actual voters, the people in these states, I mean, the power of president Trump's endorsement is so strong because he speaks for the people and he has a real pulse on where the people and all these various states and all these various positions are. So we are unified, but it's so interesting to know because you bring up there is this more comfort level to kind of talk about hunter's laptop or talk about the censorship or these other issues which are huge and go at the heart of the attacks on our First Amendment and everything else. But why not talk about the issue that made the raid possible? There's no raid if you have a free and fair election. There's no border wide open, all these things. Inflation, there's none of that. If we have a free and fair election, that's what we have to talk about and fix because and that's where I think they're very protective of.

Don't Bet Against Tony Romo's Hustle

"He's actually got a hustle. I heard he's pretty good one handed like he can he, I think he's hustled a couple pros. If you're giving him a shot of hole, he plays one handed and I think he's, I think he can shoot like three or four over, just with one arm, like not in tournament conditions, but yeah, it's like, if you were to think that, I'll be like, yeah, no worries, but I've had a fair few people say, don't blame like, don't give him a shot a hole. Or when he plays with one hand. So that makes sense. My book, he always said, never accept a bet that another guy proposes. It's just bad. It's just you're in for your infer, you're in for a lot of trouble. If you accept a weird, a weird prop bet that some other guy is like, hey, I bet you I will put on my head and shoot under par today. You're like, whatever you want. Well, the guy shoots like 69 because he's was part of cirque du Soleil or something and you can see perfectly fine putting on his head. So I mean, that shit happens all the time, it seems like.

Why President Trump Shouldn't Care About the Past

"I was interviewed by The Wall Street Journal, you are certainly free to look at it. You can read it or hear it last week. And they asked me, they believe that the election was fair at The Wall Street Journal editorial page. And I am still agnostic. The I don't have proof that the election was stolen, but I have very strong arguments that there was massive fraud. I also believe, as I believe the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. That the left would cheat in any election that they felt they needed to win and which was in which they were able to do so. My colleague and friend Hugh Hewitt wrote a book many years ago. If it isn't close, they can't cheat. He was referring to the left. He Hewitt is considered a moderate Republican. And he wrote that book. In any event the president's preoccupation with the past election, I said on this show, over and over, there is only one thing you have to concentrate on mister president, and that is the Georgia election two runoffs. All we needed is to save this country, was one. To be decided in favor of a Republican. But instead he preoccupied himself with the last election. And kept saying that this would be a fraud. The Georgia elections, to which many of his followers said, well, if it's going to be a fraud, why should I vote?

Well, I mean, it's exactly what I've been talking about from day one on the campaign trail that we have to reform our elections. And this is not a Republican thing or a Democrat thing. It's an American thing. Do we want to have our sacred vote, a sales like this? Let me just interrupt you. My producer, Jeff asked the question, this is a primary. How can they not count the ballots in the day of the primary? Well, they counted. We waited all day yesterday. They said we're going to have a lot more counter. We have over a 100,000 accounts. They came out at the end of the day and they'd only counted 5000. I mean, I think I could have counted more than that. So it's just, we're the laughing stock. And it's going to change. And it's going to change. We the people demand elections that aren't this confusing that aren't this drawn out. We should be able to have results election night. And people can go to bed and they can live with the outcome because they know it was fair. And right now we don't. I mean,

"Are delighted to have him with us, representing the 9th congressional district of North Carolina, congressman Dan bishop, welcome to America first. Thank you, doctor gorka. Really great to be with you. All right, so I want everybody to watch the full back and forth where this person refuses to answer questions as the person who is in charge of these operations. Let me ask the question that I posited in the introduction, what is beyond showing these people up for who they are as corrupt, what is the difference that you can make with these testimonies? Do we have to wait for the midterms? And what's going to change them congressman bishop? Well, it's very fair question. Doctor gorka, and I've gotten to some people said really great job. You just gave me kudos in your intro. I really didn't do that great of a job to be honest with you. You did your job, which is more than most. Well, but that's the thing, is it's only a start. I think the enthusiastic response to this is because people are so fed up and so anxious for something to change and yet, you know, all he had to say was, well, that case is still active. Therefore, I can't answer a single thing. And he said it over and over again, but it putting those questions out there at least gets it on the table. And they know that the American people are paying attention to it and are aware of it. I haven't been in the majority as doctor Gordon. There are three years and we'll see. I'm told, you know, I'm digging into what the oversight process allows us to do. I think we can haul people like that into depositions and we can actually spend enough time to get actual answers and we can force them to answer us. But it's a slow process. I don't know that I've got the full answer there. You probably know more than I do given your experiences. All I know is you got to have, you got to be fighting mad about it. You got to be ready to go.

He doesn't make that Donald Trump doesn't make that decision, you and I do. And Liz Cheney hates you and I. Dick Cheney apparently the Cheney family doesn't hate Trump. They hate us. We're not a monarchy. Trump doesn't get to return to the White House on his own. He can't do it without half the country. Isn't it fair to say that Liz Cheney hates half the country? Have you seen the spot? I mean, as media, I puts it Twitter united to rip Dick Cheney. Some prominent blue check marks said check mark said, F him, F his wretched daughter, and F Trump.

The left hates her, she's endorsed by Donald Trump, former TV newscaster, and they still don't know whether she won or not. They got her up by a couple of percentage points. And I'm reading from the Arizona media, let's see, Fox ten Phoenix, primary election 2020. Our 2022 confusion in canal county. Is caused by unprecedented demand for in person ballots. Here's a headline from an Arizona paper, smeared ink, pilfered pens, ballot shortages, scattered election day issues dot otherwise smooth day.

Dinesh Grudgingly Admires China's Relentless Pursuit of Realpolitik

"For the past several decades, we have thought of the United States as the world's sole superpower. But one way you can tell if you're a superpower is by acting like a superpower. And I think it's fair to say looking at the actions of the Biden administration around the world that we are not doing that. We are acting in ridiculous ways around the world. We show very little broad minded vision. We don't pursue our own national self interest. We meddle where we shouldn't. We don't meddle where we should. And I want to contrast our behavior with ruthless, relentless, single minded pursuit of national interest, which the Chinese are engaged. In other words, the Chinese are acting far more like a superpower than we are. And of course, it's their intention to become not only a rival superpower, which they almost are, but the world's soul superpower, displacing us rather than joining us. You may say at the front of the line. Now how are the Chinese doing this? Well, let's just look at the area of mineral acquisition, which is to say the Chinese know that their economy has been growing very fast. They are, by the way, themselves, the largest producers of mining, the largest miners in the world, the Chinese are. But they still don't have enough. And they don't have all the raw materials they need. And so they're like, let's have a plan to go get them. And they're getting them from all over the world. And the Chinese are doing this both through state owned companies and private companies, but their focus is on Africa.

Eric Greitens Is a Victim of Filthy Politics

"I do not claim expertise about Eric right. I do claim a fair amount of knowledge, the man seems to me to have been railroaded out of office when he was governor. And Republicans and Democrats feared him for reasons I am not quite certain of. So it is what it is and I can only say that you don't have an articulate young, very bright, good-looking, navy seal, Rhodes scholar, run every day. I think it's, I think there's a loss there. And it is what it is. Politics is a very, very awful thing in many occasions on many occasions. Larry elder, when running for governor in the Newsom recall, was smeared so spectacularly by the media, the most infamous of many infamous examples. Erica D Smith, who. If one can morally judge a human from what they write, it's not an impressive human being. Said that Larry was the black face of white supremacy. Is politics filthy or today than it was 50 years ago, I don't know.

New CNN Chief Makes 'Apology Tour' to Republican Officials

"CNN has a new boss. The CEO is a guy named Chris licked. LIC, HT, Debbie's like Chris licked. What kind of a name is that? Sometimes people have weird names. But you know, it would be nice if everybody had a really normal name, like dinesh d'souza. Instead, we got all these eccentric names, people, you know, Chris Lake, really. Anyway, this guy evidently has been camping out in the, in the capital, talking to Republican senators. And he has been seeking out private meetings with them. In fact, he does it sort of surreptitiously, so it's not covered in the media, but evidently his goal is to try to make peace with Republican senators. What he's telling them is please come back back is the key word and be interviewed on CNN. Now the Republican center has stopped going on CNN. They're invited, but they go, no, I'm not coming on CNN. I can't expect fair treatment. I've got these nakedly hostile hosts who scream at you and smarmy and smug and make all these sarcastic comments. Who needs it? Why should we do it? Who are we appealing to? That's not our audience anyway. And CNN is so much ideologically dug in on the other side that Republican centers are like, give it a pass. By the way, by the way, this is also kind of my approach. I frequently get texts or I'm writing, I'm calling writing from the daily beast and I'm trying to confirm or deny and I'm like, no response. That's the right approach. We just ignore the other side and they're not used to that. They're used to us jumping up and down and trying to justify ourselves and so on. And we don't need to do that. So and Chris lick now realizes it's not hurting the Republicans and sorting CNN. And so he's like, please come back and he goes, we'll treat you fairly. And the Republican center is like, how do we know that? And they're like, well, he's like, you know, I'm going to, he says, I'm going to be talking to our producers about doing that. I'm going to praise the producers who are featuring both sides.

"Like I promise you yesterday, I was going to bring on a person who's an expert who's smarter than me on these topics. One thing you guys are going to know about me is that I speak with common sense, I'm authentic, but I'm not the smartest person in the world. So I recruit smarter people to talk about certain subject matter, so we all become smarter together. So I'm going to bring in a gentleman who I think is amazing. Stephen Moore, he's a distinguished fellow in economics at the heritage foundation. He's also the founder of the committee to unleash prosperity. Steven, welcome to the off state of show. It is still fair to be with you. Thanks for having me. And I know great expert on this stuff. But you know what? You don't have to be an expert to understand what's going on with this economy right now. It's just a disgrace. Yes, yes, I think that most people will understand that it's a little bit of common sense sprinkled in with facts, and I think we'll understand, but I have a few questions for you, then I had is that are we in a recession? Well, the dictionary definition of a recession two quarters of negative growth. And unfortunately, we've had that and we confirm that yesterday. Now look, it's a mild recession. It's not we were slightly negative in the first quarter and slightly negative in the second quarter. But the biggest problem right now, I'm calling this a recession in people's personal income. In other words, what's going on right now is that the inflation rate is running at about 9 to 9 and a half percent. And wages are rising by about 5 to 5 and a half percent. So I think the math is pretty easy there, right? If you've got 5% wage growth in 9% inflation, you're following behind. And by my best estimates, the average family when you adjust for the inflation that's out of control has lost about 3000 to $5000 in income in just the last year. That's a lot of money. Let's say you got a family with a 60, $75,000 income. That's a big loss

Hunter Biden's Laptop Saga Raises Deep State Questions

"One of the prime examples of how they in the permanent bureaucracy and the deep state, go ahead and conspire with the media, the social media tech tyrants, and the political operatives on the left to make sure that the American people don't get a fair view of our information space and in this case a fair chance to evaluate candidates for an election. This was the Hunter Biden laptop story. And how they went ahead in the 2020 election and during the run up the October surprise, which the Hunter Biden laptop story was, they went ahead and censored that they lied about it and they literally ran a disinformation campaign against the American public saying that the information on that laptop was Russian disinformation, which is painfully and should be criminally ironic. Well, it turns out we may have an opportunity to go ahead and hold some people accountable. Now, I understand all of you rightfully just said, oh, it'll never happen. And I wish I could say you're not right. All right? But we're going to try. And every time we do this, every time we expose it, every time we show that this conspiracy and this collusion between the deep state, the media and the tech tyrants and the Democrat left is happening, we're that much closer to stopping their ability to do it.

We have established that the promoters of this fight are creeds. people there on his side and we've established that the trope of the media in this movie is cheap shots against rocky yup and so in that scene rocky goes there the night before. And he's had this really pivotal moment where we just saw the training montage. he's like riding a high And then there's this little seed of doubt that shows up and so he goes to the fighting ring and he sees the media. Promotion of the fight is wrong is wrong about him. It has incorrectly as portrayed him incorrectly and and he has the guts to say something about it. Finally to the media person and the media person says i don't care like it doesn't matter and then when he goes home that's that next scene is then when he's like i don't know fight him. I don't even know if i'm going to fight tomorrow like that. Like so that to me. I was like that was sort of the way that we wrapped up. I was like this is again. I think this is one of the best written movies. I have seen in a long time because the writing is so tight and good. I think the third act is amazing. I'll give you the third act especially some of the first and second act are a little bit. They go. I little bit long..

"Pretty one hundred percent self focused now. The one defense of i would have is rocky clearly needs a lot of work. He's not at the point where he could box apollo creed at the beginning of the movie. He's not iraq there until the night before right boxing apollo creed that that training montage he loses like the end of the movie theoretically pokers bill he's not there at the end of the movie he doesn't win and i think that's probably important films in one goodness because it means he's still has work to do and there is a notion that especially when you're like trying to help some like polly's big problems with alcoholism and whatever that you you set your house in order first before you worry about someone else's house getting set in order so in the defensive raqi granted like he doesn't have a genuine Conversation with people in a way that you were saying but he also is the person that needs like. He's the person that is getting worked on in the movie. So that's fair. I would say as he gets his house in order. I would have liked to see growth outside of his personal desires. The only one the only thing that ever happens is the rope thing. But that's kind of that's fair. Where he just says. Paulie you can make money on my name. And he absolutely frames it as dude. I don't care. I don't care about your life. Yeah that's a hundred percent. How he frames it now. That could have been a great scene. I wear we see. Rocky say look actually. Actually i want that for you. Know what he says is don't care now could it. Could it be does say disagree. But i would agree with me because rocky is shown throughout the film as he does. He says that was the week after thanksgiving He went on the accepts. The fight right where he says. I don't care what they care. What type holly and he takes sounds like. Hey that actually that stuff really cut. And then paulie tries to get each is to get some money or maybe some fame for himself just by talking to the news and getting the news record his fight and rocky is kind of hurt by that because he has been kind of made a laughing-stock way the media couple times at that point but da mic. Mickey says he does not want. rocky he is. I'm trying to phase rounds china..

"Kind of redeemed. It doesn't excuse me i'm mad. Person does a good thing. Yeah that's what i made like. He's not really hate. Sin not the center type of deal because i think it's very clear that he struggled with alcoholism for a long long. That's really fair. Because they always center in like they don't there's a photo of him in the navy where he's like graduating His class i assume and it very seems a because it's always face towards the camera and you can always see. I think you're gonna go with the whole potential purpose thing. That maybe paulie somebody who just entirely missed the train at this point. It's too late because of his sins. He's very jealous rocky. When he starts his succeed and like he gets with adrian and he gets the chance at the title. And it's obvious that he's gonna take it serious at polish. Just trying to kind of try to ride off of rocky. Yeah you know. I love everything. You just sat. Because i think that really that encompasses so much more consistent. This is what was going on. You just said. It's certainly. Because i i've seen the whole series and polly doesn't get a ton better but it might just because he's like an inner city guy and there's only he it's not better in rocky through inter-city people but he's just rough very rough around the edges as a person and rocky does his best to raise polly up and i think he does eventually like start that long but probably also has to do a lot of the work of south with cutting out drinks and has a problem with that throughout the entire series. Until he's just no longer in it. I think in five. When i yeah and i think like in context of what rocky saying to the girl like i think there's a sense in which the reason that girls should stop hanging around. Those people are because they are making her worse. Paulie doesn't make rockies. Rocky really is not affected by paulie in that way and so i think there's also senate which like rocky doesn't really need to come out of his life because rockies not being negatively impact. I think not once he wants. He decides to get serious anyways. It's fair he definitely kind is at the very beginning of the movie. I not not. I dunno i think paulie is that voice that tells him. I'm good enough. That i don't need to push this thing anymore. Like that hunter saying because that's the movie rockies got the job where he's breaking people singers as alone as the muscle of the loan. Shark kinda like awesome mold in red and by is definitely assistant at like joe of go to.

"Because i will say him. What's that dumb indian name. No-one no-one i will say no. One was definitely a bad influence on. The wanda is the one student that keating ever calls out for anything which is interesting does justify in two hundred percent. Yeah i think that's probably actually my favorite scene. It is a great team especially to because it changes how that character addresses. Everything rested the movie kind. I don't know if that's true. No there's definitely a shift there is because he kinda takes one. The character kind of takes a back seat in the movie. You still have to prominent character. That's still is also only one major plot point in the movie after that no true but he he He he stops telling he stomped like telling the story of and kind of making fun of the headmaster for calling him out right after keating calls him out on it. So well let me get back to it I might have to throw episode man. So what some hands hood movie the ending. The ending was just bad about a guy who kills himself because he can't join the school play. I wanna hear what hundred has to say. Because i have a comment that is almost identical to one hundred now for. I think i'm gonna go back to where i think it's to go wrong and wanda brings the girls to the club and brings neighboring alcohol. Which i imagine from the way robin williams character is that definitely happened. The dead poets society. But i don't think like that. That's i did end as well. So maybe both kind of had the same fate ultimately where it's just like at a boarding school with all these marriage and stuff you can't really get away with that normal high school experience. Not that that's a totally good experience. And if you didn't have that that's completely fine but like maybe it's where i expected. Alcohol at parties is not the average high school experience. Now probably not. Because i didn't just absolutely is not the average students experience but I kind of expected. Keaton to actually. I expected the movie to end like this words. They get into trouble with headmaster. And they're getting to maritz all the time and qian's like hey. This is a really good. I like what you guys are doing. But i'm gonna come here to your meetings now. I'm going to properly guide this and it will become more fraternity like it's aspect. Okay why you lost a good way. I also am turned off by greek life just because of certain aspects of it good but like in a good way where there is an adult guiding these children and like he is encouraging them to live life and land like he's maybe a cigarette with somebody's lying. He's keeping them away and steering them away towards like alcohol women and more towards like. Hey let's get back to like expressing and talking about how we feel in our lives right now and maybe that's not much alternate room to show any guidance at all towards maturity to be fair. The kids did start a club without heating. You're right. He does not actually have an active role in the club. That's an important point especially for understanding the end of the movie. And that's why. I say neal ruins it for everybody because he probably ruins keaton's career even though did he teach at a london high school or did he graduate from he was teaching it..

"Gentler. I think it's a good. It's the thesis of. I would definitely say the thesis of the film. What was robin segue into it. Because it's a little force to me like. He's like a random english poem. And here's carpet name might just be me. So his segue into it was gathering. Roosevelt's why may right because The reason for that is you should live properly because your time on earth is limited and it matters and in saying that it matters. It means that you should take every day And and really try and live to the fullest kind of thank and he shows people in the past doing that and how that's just kind of how humanity has succeeded. You may not be given tomorrow right. You are only sure that you've been given now And so you should be living now in the greatest way that you can be right. It is the same kind of. There's like a new testament. Passage where jesus talks about living every day or paying attention today. Where in it's kind of been taken as for those wondering. Take an aw just like live in the moment man and like super hippy. And which is kind of what we're carpet. Dm's at now. In which is why. I really dislike it. And it's more i would. Are you more like what mike was saying. Where you live every day so that every day is good an improvement on the previous day and so in in such a way that things in the future when they come. We'll be able to be handled if that makes sense. Yeah the monastic ideal. Yeah what's your spend your training. You are caught your training. 'cause you never know when the test is coming. So what's your critique of this one mike mike. Critique of this one is that i think robin williams character pushes this a little into the hippy idea and it or at least i think there's the danger of this movie being interpreted as such which i i understand that where he's coming from. This is definitely where i. I think this was super popular. Is going to boil down a little bit. How you interpret the movie. Not necessarily what. The directors intent was because like. I didn't ask the director. I still think the mind of the movie is more of a higher. Sounds so stupid going. Oh my yeah you say that a lot on the podcast by the way my constantly guessing you're waiting just go for it okay. So it's more of a. I think the my interpretation of this meeting is more of a deeper sense. Like not just the hippie sense that makes sense. I think this is where this where where the phrase carpe diem. has become more of that. Like hippy.

That's keyword latkes never is not wise the yeah and then they all get at the end and and it's great and he's like yeah. We didn't vigorous out. You wanna just come by my house tomorrow. Yeah soccer yeah. Socrates says every one of us should seek out the best teacher whom he can find. I for ourselves who are greatly in need of one and then for the youth he basically says if you have any worries about the education of the youth about the state of our culture about the future of our country anything like that your number one priority is to self educate fair you to get better. Yeah take responsibility. Yeah i liked that. I liked that a lot. Actually like someone A reporter went to mother. Teresa time and said what's wrong with the church. Just here's your chance. I'm asking what what's wrong with the church today and mother teresa said you and me. That's i mean. That's what kind of the conclusion of nazism go on. I other theresa. And i said no. I said the exact same thing to greg. The other day he was complaining about how the truck that we were moving on was in disorder. Greg it's only like that because you did that. You were part of it. That's that's how the nazis rose to power. He's just like what this is. The kind of one of the big theories is like the reason why the nazis were able to be so bad. Is that modern. Like everyday people complied. Oh yeah it's the breakdown of the individual person and not not like decide is society is the evil now. It's like an individual responsibility. So now it's a fun. It's a fun thing to say though is just like you just like. Here's the nazi regime. And i gotta do it though for today right like we wrapped up pretty good. Yeah i think. I only have one more question. Overarching thing bernard. Suzanne has put in this order and this is our first four. This is your primary like this is what you do good. I four of the virtues. Why is that in your first virtues. Well why not you know why there. Lots of wisdom. Why courage. it's friendship. Courage and wisdom. I would say courage because you need courage to be able to confront op the obstacles in your way of the other virtues. It's a it's a pretty fundamental one in my mind that way. I don't know what do you think the. I just had a question. I've that's that would be my answer to the question. Like yeah my only other thought then is what are we talking about fighting one on one now about raising kids. Sure what are we talking about. What's the whole what's the what's our big. What's our keyword courage. Courage is it or is it wisdom. What's it really. Oh man and masculinity yeah weird masculinity what we've really just on a podcast on masculinity true virtuous masculinity. What does that look like.

"Should we do this with a cup. Like some of our guys and the were their main generals like now. Do not do it because the knowing when you're going to do something it hurts you and pulling back in preserving yourself is inherently good and creates better soldiers. So maybe it is. It is that that armor is the distinction here where people are too confident. Or or there's there's too much like showmanship. i guess. Yeah i'm gonna. I'm gonna go even further with it and say it's the difference between arguing with someone face to face or on the internet. It's good way got a barrier that is a barrier. And we're saying you fighting on the internet pointless. Go meet them face to face. You think about like medieval knights fighting In armor did not accomplish anything when they actually fought one on one. It's actually sure because they didn't kill each other. They just one of them gave up and that was the fight. And i think there's something there's like an intimacy to it and to go back even with plato. Like what is played always say. You can't ask a book questions. No you have to time with. I two human minds have to meet and strike each other and thereby causing spark. There's something about the wrestling not. They're not there's no distance and wrestling remember. Greek record and wrestling is completely naked. It is man to man. And yes go like i think this is. I think this is an argument against armor. An argument against putting up barriers not armor. But i you know. I mean your heart mark. I think it's an argument about like yeah. There's a certain like intimacy to coming to true knowledge certain intimacy to curious as an intimacy virtue that is really human and when you dehumanize in a sense represented by the armor when you dehumanize when you anonymous anonymous times make it anonymous things like that you really do lose something you lose efficacy. Robots are never gonna take over in boxing like in real steel. Because it's not real real steel as stupid as a stupid analogy. Feel dumber for saying. Take your personality percentile. Mark bad you philosophy podcast. It's great yeah. Did you tell them that one the questions was. Do you like arguing with people and do you like like talking about philosophy and the one of the answers was you don't like confrontation but you don't oppose confrontation when someone of equal level. So if i'm just. I wouldn't say i wouldn't argue with somebody who's just gonna be loud and try and walk all over me directly which i think is fair because i would. I honestly i would argue with that person. Because there's nothing to be gained from which is a little bit of socrates is like you throw up your hands and surrender like kind of is something to that. Yeah like i don't think it's i don't okay knowing when to surrender. Isn't like a bad right like yeah. It's it's what courage is the knowledge of that which inspires fear confidence. Nick yes no. I think there is a real wisdom to knowing when to engage in when not to. Yeah obviously maybe maybe that comes back to what you were saying of knowing that you can or intimating that you can overcome an obstacle that can be overcome because if it's not if something you can't overcome he would be less courageous Some other nikki talks about yeah stood..

"Sure kind and if you have the greek the of death. Everything is life in greek. You when you die. It sucks nothing you did before yes and so to do something that throws your life away like that. Yeah that's that's idiocy in ancient. That's an idiocy danger. Fix because like you're not gaining anything for you're gonna lose and you're gonna die like you've you've thrown everything away. Gain honor mike. No you don't you. You preserve honor. Not in ancient greeks but well. What does that matter to you you're dead. They don't underworld. It doesn't matter if someone likes you after you're dead like that's like socrates it'd be like no it doesn't matter when we were the greeks thought like when we remember the great deeds of the old ones that doesn't help them that doesn't make them feel better they they're dead and their life sucks their shaped in haiti's they don't care if we honor them. It doesn't mean anything it doesn't make it doesn't make their existence better homer when when odysseus goes down and talks to all the shades in the underworld. They're all just like no. It sucks down here. I would much rather be alive and have no honor that'd be dead and have all this quote unquote honor those. You don't mean anything. So i just disagree with greeks right and that's the thing we're like there is something there is a reality and i think that's something that christ comes down and does a great job of describing is there is actually like there is actually meaningfulness to your death and there and and that meaningfulness only mean like it's only meaningful to die for something if there's actually like good that can come of it and if there's life after death then it's meaningful there's not like throwing your life away for a quote unquote a 'cause doesn't really mean anything because if you don't have life after death that also means the people you just died for don't have life after death like this quote unquote we're making the world better but if the world is just a bunch of material and none of these humans actually mean anything then then doing then dying for a cause to better the future..

"Socrates says absolutely not being able to see through like i get wisdom is the ability to know sure. The ability to see through is pretty play. Canada i'm going to quote harry potter here for a second. Okay it takes curse up your enemies. It takes far greater courage. The stand up to your friends stumbled. Yeah no that's not courage. I i think. I think when lackey says endurance wise endurance of the soul. I put my pin down and say honestly. That's you've got it. That's what i would i would. I would be happy if you still like included the jersey sauce. Just it is also very poetic weisenthal. An again i think that includes the stepping up to the gay. That's what i'm like as long as that. Because that's the endurance of the future. The fear of the future. You can endure that like you can handle that and still do the thing and then there's like an endurance of the present and endurance past fear. We can talk about in the second. Yep when we when we open for nikki ass- yes. Nikki is going to get more into that. But yeah i realize ended like definition to is good which is why this is called the latkes. And not the plato one. Plato wrote a dialogue named after himself. Now here's a. I can't imagine that. Here's their here. Socrates example again. Take the case of one who endures in war and is willing to fight in wisey calculates to nossa others will help him that there will be fewer and inferior men against him than there are with him and suppose that he also has advanced position. Would you say of such a one who endures with all this wisdom and preparation that he or some man in the opposing army who's in the opposite circumstance to these and get indoors remains as posts the braver. And like you said it's the unprepared man because he's facing a bigger danger says but that's foolish right and my question is proven socrates wise. That foolish like what should he. What else would he do. Because yeah and socrates does he just render and give up this is where plato and socrates and the ancient greeks fall short because Death the death is the evil. That man doesn't have anything to stand up for other than to preserve as it is foolish not to preserve your life in ancient greece. You don't stand up for bigger idea. Okay that explains the next little bit and my argument is and that's why i think it's fair to say like. There is a limit to greek philosophy without the revelation of the fullness of christ because jesus literally addresses as issue those who those who seek to to preserve their lives will lose it and those who lose their lives for my sake will keep it. There's a certain of like christianity allows you to die for something meaningfully. Hang on a minute. And i think other things don't really have a meaningful reason tonight for this thing so you look you said okay. So that quote that quote from the gospel again a very good philosophy like even if you're not religious the gospels pretty good for philosophy outside of races quite a philosopher yes those who seek to preserve their like what what does that guy fighting for then if he's not preserving his life that's why already says that's why he says he's late to stay in fighting that we would be foolish. You should surrender and leave. It would be to sit there and fighting an enemy. That wildly outnumbers out strategizes. You you walk away you put your hands up and he walked away and like you said why would call him. I would call him braver last. He says i.

I would never be able to be influenced by homer if he hadn't ever written anything if there were if nothing had ever been written down. I probably wouldn't have access to the iliad and the odyssey. If machiavelli had not been able to write things i wouldn't have access to the prince and these different works and so throughout time there has been you know in a sense. A a human consensus in many ways of the works of literature. And the people who communicated in ways that allow to engage with these thoughts that allows us to engage with the fullness of reality and to and to really become human the most sometimes he's giving fancy titles like the great books and things like that and like like the right books. I think it's i think more than a great books you've never heard of them. Okay mortimer adler and somebody's we can. You can go over together. We got. We have a whole podcast. Anyway they put together a thing. And it's like these are the great books of western civilization. okay fantastic. There's like one hundred some hundred books. It's great a nice is limited western civilization to be fair. I think obviously there's like stuff outside of the european tradition that is phenomenal. But that's like good places to start is. What are the things that everyone knows is great like everyone knows that. Shakespeare's good some people might think he's like one of those people that everyone thinks is good but like i don't get it. It's okay to not get it. It's okay to not get something the first time you read.

"Social justice favorite colleges are both are both like great works. Colleges fantastic cool So today we're talking about kind of intro Why should you think about philosophy. Why should you really care about what you're doing kind of what's the point of it. I know it's a. It's a big topic to handle but like i think. I think we can do it so my first question is. What's what's really the point because i find nihilism Today to be a very kind of pervasive Viewpoint of the world nihilism Is just like basically nothing matters right. I have that right correct. Well i you know. I think some nihilists would disagree but i. I think that. I think that is a natural consequence of nihilism. Yes what i do. Doesn't matter might as well just kind of go along for the ride. Go with the flow. Kinda kinda thing right. I would call that apathy. And i would describe that as a symptom of nihilism but it's not the found. It's not like why like. That's not the foundation violence on. I don't think okay enlighten me then. We'll the foundation of nihilism. The foundation of nihilism is there are no eternal realities. You cannot you if there were. You wouldn't be able to figure them out anyway and nothing has an intrinsic purpose. Not even truth see. I just don't find that. Very compelling i guess.

I don't think nihilism is very compelling because you always end up at this will why not just go through the motions. And why don't i just honestly like why am i even here kind of kind of attitude which it it. It's just not. I can't really explain it very well. And i'm going to be honest My ability to articulate. My ideas is not great. But it's not a fulfilling Way to go about life if you just going through the motions every day. It's just like what's why. Am i here kind of thing. You know what i mean. It's not. I'm not getting anything out of it. I'm not To quote One of my favorite movies. I'm not sucking the marrow out of life which is quoting another home But yeah so. I just i don't know i want to open that up to you. Guys what do you think and my on the right track here.
