"Laws if we talk about the wall of china like that like that was built for security yet but if people realize those water bill on top of mountain a totally different landscape and also the wall was a dynasty displaying ego. And this is what's happened. This is what's happening to this wall. Now it's not actually affected. You know it's not actually going to keep people out it's just representing the eagle right. It's just a it's a landmark. It's a piece of steel like. Yeah it doesn't really make any sense to spend taxpayer money whereas we could use that money. For education there are so many four citizens that do not get the right education because we we are not spending our resources on needed things in our infrastructure. All of these things we could be fixing we could be doing to better our future instead of wasting it on a war that somebody could just climb. It's just an obsessive thing. Obsessive material symbol thing for toxic nationalism. It really is just sort of a physical barrier ended like an emotional barrier to see refugees to really look at them. Because america doesn't want to see it you know they don't want to know what is actually happening. Because then they'd have to base the humanity of these people and we are in country made a refugee year the very basis. It's they came. They were religious. Fiji is it's really insane. Yeah it's really amazing nutty our country's history before its founding idea of refugees coming over then turn around okay no more refugee and it's also just human rights. Migration is united. I mean even native even indigenous. Peoples have moved trays of you trace. Nutrient you trace. We've on mood. We all move because we need to live to eat. It gets cold here. we go here. He gets higher. Like what you're talking about. Like climate change being one of these factors for movement for our right to movement for a write to migration. You can a wall isn't gonna do anything. You're just killing people at this point. You know sort of you know investing that time energy and money into better servings in the people there is our own citizens or people coming over who are desperate for our helga. Why don't we live up to our principles that we keep repeating but refusing to. I wanted to apply that to acknowledge that this country is special because it's made refugees at recognize as you said that humans have always migrate toward the knee of survival. It's not a modern phenomenon and how this wall that sounds so simple. Won't solve this complex problem. We need to all work together to solve this not just because of the climate change threat but because of also geopolitical threats that some of which other administrations have funded wars dictatorships of because we five with that. Whatever reason at that point they were going to support american policy but turned out in the longer term to be detrimental to to us in the end. Which is ironic. Yeah it's all a big almost twisted joke. Well thank you very much. Did you see retort decompressed. All of the things. I've been thinking about since range of my young artists.

"Here. Yeah lack of compassion. Not only now for people were pumping over but also lack of compassionate and the way that we don't hear how our actions affect other people around the world. The united states is the second biggest producer. Herbert dioxide in the world. The first one is china but per capita person. Us s In a very calculated country s. it's the first producer dioxide so we are driving climate change in many ways and refusing to do anything to curb carbon dioxide production for the sake of putting more money in people's pockets and not just not regular people's pockets rich people's pockets on top of that and with new mexico beach the hurricane we finally released saw at over the last couple of years. Maybe even the last ten years. America's finally our country is finally seeing the effects of climate his hand rather than seeing refugees. Who are running away from climate change with them. We don't really emphasized pains but at the same time we're still denigrating these refuges. Yes it's sort of like what we mentioned earlier. Like displacement is made up from a lot of different factors clementine does just now another factor of migrants and the poem says sort of shoving of it safe. When i read that. I imagine this huge arm just sort of like did really destroying what it what home means for a lot of people run and what happens after that would entail survival and what will happen right when the us land. Is this saving pointing to the point of safety for everybody else. Yeah and the policies that don't support that. Yeah and we need to start thinking about that. Climate change is happening much faster than anticipated and not just refugees from climate change. But i'm hoping because we are starting to have our own country refugees from climate change that we are able to reflect on the experience of enforced to leave to think about refugees. That's coming outside the border because maybe we can relate to that experience of not having a choice but here as with elsewhere people who has the leash are always the most affected by whether or not is political reasons or mother nature saying well. We need to adjust. Nature doesn't have any bias ernie racist tendencies or any political agendas so when it happens to this country in shape or form and it has eight feel right. Hopefully it isn't too late to the point where the people who need to be convinced have to see a whole country be destroyed before they decide. We should have done something about it train and this is why i mean i personally love that. There's a lot more representation and the after the election of people from different classes. Not just stay versity in terms of race but in terms of economic class because then whether or not whatever color a person present in their skin economic disadvantages will affect the more disproportionally when in preparation for political upheaval. Were climbing upheaval. Whatever upheaval is it's good to have this reputation for me. Even whether or not that comes from the right or the left me. It's important to have that intersection of a representation. So that people can understand or maybe safe from their own experience. Because we can't always count on the empathy of those who are in government right now which is southeast. because we like the jerry. I think i think the working causes were sort of hoping rate that the new people that were elected. Remember what. it's like anything that it is. There's a good chance of that. Hopefully it's about time and how much how long it'll take push these policies to be enacted how long it would take to happen but it's necessary. It's very necessary. And hopefully these new refugees and with these more diversity in the representation will gathering the voices together and try to understand other people who are fleeing their countries or for a myriad of reasons. Not having a warning sometimes having to leave to empathize a little bit more. Not say oh you. You're from across the border from this country. Therefore you don't deserve any better because we are we latest before we market the i american you know where everybody is supposed to be equal. Everybody is post to how these wonderful rights with other people are coming from other countries. Just because they're not our citizens. Why can't we apply that idealism to them because we it's not about citizenship. it's about believing. Do you actually believe these principles. See a lot of like facebook. Comments of people saying the wide the people from southern south america and south america. And be like. Why did these moms and parents do this their fault because they believed the us you know the us said the us said we're great we're mytilene we're fair you're free. You know. this is who we are. These people believe believed he said okay. That's we're going to go if you gordon this savior. If you're the christian country you know you are the people who are supposed to be driven by this ideal of hype grayson hard work and then that's where we're going to go a lot of the mothers who came with their children or children that we never imagined that this is the treatment that would happen like we only imagined a country where people have their arms open and accepted refugees and really accepted children. Above all else. Nobody imagined that this would do what they're doing to kids like. Yeah so you're right. The us sort of soul this dream and then when people came to be a part of it rejected them so it is about sort of keeping the word you know if this is the country that you say that it's time to start acting like that. Yeah yeah because we found out these principles that people keep counting and keep going back to and they should go back to but not only to just say something crazy year soundscape. But actually do when you say. Walk the walk. The talk the talk sort of an idea or question about the lines now scattered discarded and led to disintegrate like the bodies of the ones who weren't ready for such a long arduous journey. Who is ever ready so like maybe what. What is what is like what happens if refugees are able to be ready or what happens. What makes a successful refugee and do even have.

"Because the the thing that you can reach out at most often and really affect is kind of classically pointed to his workplace and that's really scary There are a lot of tactics to keep people from organizing the workplaces. I personally think like any better any good that i'm talking about on this. Trajectory does not come from electing another. Aoc bernie or whatever. It's we have to spread the gospel of everyone organiz your workplace. And then we sort of rest power back that way That's a difficult task. And i think this the first step to getting there and before even joining your local dsa or whatever a reading you know theory on lip kahn or something like that is just the lens just understanding any given moment what's actually happening in how actually to manipulate the various contradictions in the world. Because we're screwed when we go okay. There's a problem with the police Okay what if. I vote for somebody who says they're going to train them. That doesn't do anything to resolve. The contradiction between us in the police adjust lower little bit and inevitably they heighten back up and rub against each other instructed make friction right and so i mean it's really just just kind of a basic understanding and you know what that's hard to the reason that the another reason that this stuff is so alien in so taboo in american society and so hard to find is because there's an inherent contradiction in the fact that in order to read all this shit you have to not be working all the time. Which is why. I do podcasts. About it and stuff but really like no take. Take a load off yourself. Stop they want you to have a guilt complex. Where you're like. it's. It's me as the stuff that i buy is what changes society and the stuff that i boycott. Yes off no. It's oh my god right. Like it's like i remember when i first learned about this rotten pairing the the companies do were. They pair their coffee with like they in the laziest way they'll have like a picture of like coffee beans and they'll say sustainable on top of it and see you go there and you get this weird sense of guilt mitigation because you saw a picture of coffee beans and above. It says sustainable. And you know it's the cop. I got up early. Non-government organizations like people just kind of ritual ego like donate a few hundred dollars a year or two x company or whatever it like those are all the money get sucked up into them and then they just pays the employees. That's like the fact that you felt better for doing that is actually worse. Because it's all your resources as a person and we need those resources to build a better world to birth the better world from all of us. We you had okay. How here comes a fucking the of a pig. I'm having a fence. Put around my house that i bought first house i ever have bought. I know that's insane. I can't believe it. And i have people who are working to do this to doing this work and i know for certain that the person i'm paying isn't just the way it works. There's no way they're getting like it's not equally distributed equally so i mean just nuts and bolts. How the fuck do. How do i do that. What does that look like you know. How does that look. What does that look. I'm just saying like i'm privileged successful and my experience of life is very different from my experience of life when i was pulling cheese out of my fucking refrigerator but but so i'm on the sadly like on the other side and that's not sadly i mean i like it but still it's like what the fuck what do we do. What do i do with like the good fortune that i have. What is that look like. And i'm not saying like what do i do. Get obviously guess. But i'm just curious from a communist perspective or from the perspective of communism. What are the householders supposed to do. What are the people who have employees even if it's temporary supposedly a what the fuck do we Okay so the first answer is relaxed. Because you know a lot of people will tell you is very just flawed. Immediate critique of everything. I'm talking about is will go. Well you use a cell phone and you order food ofo grow up. I was a pizza delivery guy for many years. I use the app that exploited pizza delivery is like it's part of just yeah live in america Yeah the Socialism comes from understanding. The we are trapped in the workings of capitalism. So don't worry. If you have to buy stuff that is inherently exploitative things you have to buyer inherently exploitative nine nine percent of the time and you know you can do individual things like tip nicely or whatever but more importantly is just live your life but really understand that when those workers go on strike the only thing you can do to support them is to support the strike or you know if there's an organized boycott then boycott dan but like you really have the pitches at stuff too. Because like i mean sometimes boycotts are bad. Because if they're not called by the workers than like the actually hurts the company they just did this in In alabama amazon faked boycott. And they've trick people into thinking like i should support this but it's like the workers didn't call it and so we still work for a place. We still need you to spend money there so we get paid and stuff like that. So there's all these things that you need to understand and if you understand them it's actually very easy because then all you notice that all you really have to do is support the strike in oh and spread the good word and you know i don't know i mean probably there's something i'm not getting to here but i'm just trying to you know i don't know what is all i got now. It's reading now. I think it's great man. I think like one of the sweet things that you're saying is which weirdly does parallel a lot of the like spiritual seven foot. Drop the fucking guilt thing for a second like. You're where you're at. You know i remember. I was whining to my meditation. Teacher wants because i just eating lamb. I was feeling guilty. Which is the most sociopathic. Like imagining jeffrey dahmer. After eating a person but then like apologizing to the sculler way is eating the fucking thing. But i was bitching about it. And he's like too late for the lamb to late for you and you know that's just the way it is where we are. We're at i like that. I think there's a lot of room in what you're saying for me to do. I just. I guess. I'll just relax. And then that's it. But i think you're adding to it like you know. Get to know what you what union shit's going on in your town. Is that what you're saying like get to know where. The workers are organized and pitch in a little bit if they need your help. Yeah yeah it feels very counterintuitive it. It feels intuitive to people. I think to do the things that you do all day which is by things in walk around and stuff and try to outweigh. But it's actually very much more abstracted weird..

"It's a hopeless situation and everyone thinks depressing statement. But it isn't it's like let's start where we're at here. But he do you think one of the pat like we have to think about pathways to this utopia. because i feel like it's our human rights. And regardless of the whatever's up we're up against it's our human rights in it's also part of making stuff as you think of the end result and forget about what's getting in the way and then you can kind of reduce that in result until it fits in with something more realistic than what whatever you have at your control. But what about this idea. This sounds like idealism though. But what if like the answer is not the revolution that people think. What if the answer is the communists hard core communists have to become wealthy they have to become. Ceo's they have to go through. The avenues of capitalism become insanely powerful and wealthy. And then you. Then that's where you dismantle the fucking thing enact laws from that place of power and wealth act like. You're all fucking wealthy. You're fucking batman. you're the batman of communism. What i mean. And this is that a pathway into nitto people think of that as a possibility. I don't think so. That's obviously a very american concept. That's what we tell people so that communism doesn't happen to go how 'bout you do this instead but the problem is that does not alleviate the contradictions of society it just heightens them in favor of someone else. I think One thing. I do want to make Pretty clear To kind of come to a little bit of inclusion about this released my spiel is what i think is honestly the path forward and the reason. I think that that talking to you talking to your audience about this is going to be so cool is that a. I did not come here to negate idealism and materialism does not negate idealism. It's not a battle between the two things one of my favorite things anyone's said about Materialism is does not negate idealism. It's simply puts it in. Its correct context. And in that way the two things work together in like synthesis and i think really we have to kind understand how these puzzle pieces fit together because one thing about bike water in society and like millennials and shit like that is like we're all like working right now and our contradictions heightening and we're getting paid less than working harder and stuff like that And our bosses are in the culture generals kind of pushing like this self care stuff on us and like medicine and all that sort of stuff in the thing is that stuff is not wrong. But it's in the wrong context because when when your boss tells you how about you meditate. They're telling you that gift instead of giving you a raise and you're like oh let me can only add to that for you because i've heard all the critiques of mindfulness. It's one of the big problems with it. Is that like mindfulness and meditation. It's an it's an ambivalent it's you know. Here's it's like jumping. Jacks or something like this is a neutral thing. But it's not just that it's being used. It could be used as what you're talking about spiritual bypass it could just be used as a as a way to sort of. Give yourself the impression that you're doing something or that you're like this is something i used to be so good at which was like you know. Just figuring out ways to make my cowardice. Like i was being revolutionary. I'm too good for the world. I'm outside the system. You know what i mean like. Yeah i've totally in the system. But you know i don't really but i am totally in the system that kinda shit and meditate go retreats. I i take acid or whatever it is. You know what i mean. And so the but the big critique is like they're teaching drone operators mindfulness. They're they're teaching people or of dropping bombs on people had practiced mindfulness to a reach a kind of clarity when their turn people on a hamburger meat in other countries. So you know for me like the if marx's saying we're going to stay right here we're going to stay in this moment now here then that extinguishes. A lot of possible idealism. Just right there because a huge part of it seems like a huge part of what people used to sued themselves as like little orphan. Annie which is the ultimate example of what you're talking about. You know the little orphan gets adopted by the fucking oligarch and then all of a sudden has a great life. I mean it's a parable of idealism and what's the fucking anthem of little orphan. Annie those calm zero s. Tomorrow it will get better mother fucker. You know what. I mean so to me. I think where you're right. Where a lot of like mindfulness. Meditation and a lot of like squad spirituality gets misused or misplaced is by people who are trying to use it as a sedative but any real experience with this shit if hurts. It's it's about dropping your ignorance. It's about letting like not ignoring all the shit that's inside of you or the world and you know it's a fuck. It's i think. A lot of people are shocked to suddenly discover that through some spiritual practice they're experiencing a lot of What was it. You're saying that causes the revolution traditions contradictions. And that. yeah that that it through that practice. They're being invited. To look the contradiction right in the fucking i instead of ignoring it and then that empowers people in some way but i mean tell me a little bit about like an thank you so much for this conversation. Do you have a little more time. It's been an hour i got. Let's put it this way. I have more time than you on. Wonderful got kids. Yeah but but so. Let's bring it into Instead of like the you did a great job of like framing this history. Thank you awesome but now frame it in a day. What if marxist talking about this. It's it's like being in the now of what's happening. What does that look like for an individual from day to day basis. Okay that's a really good question because we are so brainwashed into thinking about ourselves as individuals and so this is like this. Why this stuff's important because when you understand all the stuff of class consciousness you immediately realize that that's not even a good way of framing it but you still aren't individual so you do wake up and a lot of people might think. Well i wanna make the world a better place. So for example i am going to not buy or eat any meat. You know which is fine. I'm friends with a lot of vegans. And i support that heartedly and everything and i understand. Why but you know that's really still framing your connection to the world as you as a consumer in your power being as a consumer right so you can be a vegan for as long as you want but you know if you if you in more concrete political ways you know. You don't support your local unions that then represents and puts pressure on a politician who makes decisions about factory farms and things like that. You have done way less so actually putting all this pressure on you and your individual lifestyle is very advantageous for the capitalist system because it has you kind of misdirecting all of your energy you know so actually one thing you can do for can relax like hang out and you know joy yourself for a moment. Let's rock and coal for all the stuff in perspective and you know.

"Start seeing do is there something in the communist talk about like the reason we have these walled communities is not just because of safety but because if enough people see how people are living and they're gonna get angry enough. It accelerates us towards a revolution. Yeah i kind of well. Let's talk about trump i So you know what's really interesting about trump. Is it when i look at him. Icy what you just described like. I'm like this book disgusting. The display of wealth right. But i think americans because they have that temporarily embarrassed millionaires problem like his fan. Base should have been angry that he was richer than them right but they weren't they. Were like no. That's my god. I'm friends with him. I'm about to get as rich as him right. And so this really echoes. What kind of happened. In nazi germany like right before All that shit really blew up. Which is that This myth right. After trump got elected like liberals were kind of like the media was kinda like oh. He got elected by all these like angry. Poor coal miners and stuff and like broken white trash people and like sure. Some of those people are in his base but most of his base is very middle class. They're like people who are like small business owners and own hot tubs and stuff like that. And it case in point when those people with cunanan people. stormed the capital in january. I was watching the news that day and they interviewed some of them and they would be like a small business owner. Yada yada yada. It was like wait. You're not the worker your your what's called the petty bourgeois right. You are small business owner. Who thinks they like. They identify more with the class above them. Then the class below them small business owners are very like all. I'm better than my workers in this country and so the reason that they were so pissed off because they were living in what they felt like. It was a contradiction which is it. I'm supposed to be accelerating and getting richest fuck right now. In my like fucking pool company like isn't blowing up and so it must be because of the trump comes along and he goes that's right it's because of mexicans right and it's like no it's not because mariah it's because capitalism but when you have the anxiety there in the feeling of the contradiction but someone comes along gives you a scapegoat like a immigrant instead of the answer being capitalism that fascism because that whole project was like blah gonna fix this by scapegoating. This fucking problem in. I got you man. Oh yeah okay so. This is komo news myth of systemic revisiting. Its talks about isn't a very different way. Maybe it's misinterpretation and it talks about so kumud says you realize that at some point you're gonna have to realize that you don't fit into the world that something's fucked up here and there's a not fucked up but As a human being you're you can't fit into the background. You've gotta be something in in the act of being something you're forced into this weird confrontation with your own mortality your own meaninglessness and also the description gives us really fucking trippy. Just like the. It's the moment where everything just seems kind of alien and horrifying and you don't even know why i just don't fit it. What the fuck. So he calls this absurdity. It's the moment of just realising. What off fuck. I don't like when you're outside and looking at like smelling gas and cars and there's lights and for a second you don't remember what any of it is and you're just like i'm looking at like a love. Crafty in hell city here. So this is the encounter with absurd and so he is accused. Premise of the whole book is like. Why wouldn't you kill yourself if you really realized that. Wouldn't you just commit suicide. And so the book is about why you wouldn't commit suicide but to get there. He asked to talk about philosophical suicide. Bill is sophal. Suicide is a way out of the absurd which matches your critique of idealism or what you're telling me which is that and that was his critique of all these existentialist philosophers like soaring kirkuk guard and who searle who apparent who had come up with tricks. Kirkegaard said you know. Faith is the answer The fact don't understand the divine and confused by is the sign of the divine power. Let our confusion is our connection to the divine faith and then Who searle had a more like an again man. I read reading in the morning on a lot of coffee. Who's just said that Apparently he came up with some version of the plate platonic ideal like a place where some ideal for must exist outside the body and komo said that's a more clever forma philosophical suicide because you've discovered thing we can't see a non thing commute doesn't even mention materialism in this is exactly where he's coming from. It's a critique of idealism based on what you're telling me and so yeah as you're saying this is another form of suicide what you're talking about is a form of suicide that leads to fucking fascism or instead of looking the problem right in the fucking face you come up with a easily defeated pro mostly helpless group of people and just start beating them and then somehow in that you feel like you're like fixing things. Yeah it's crazy it's like do i mean that's a really good comparison and i'm sure all these philosophers whoever came after whoever was informed by the other because they're all nerds already shit whatever so like it's probably all connected somehow but like i mean yeah basically you know i don't know really what the answer to this but it does seem like like human beings tend to experience that alienating that communities talking about in mark's talks about in every kinda puts a different word on which is like an emptiness where you're yearning for something like to kind of solve it and there are really bad answers to that like getting really fucking into cure on just like filling your life bad and then there are answers that are kind of neutral. I'd say like people People i think that are really into just like christianity and having a personal relationship with god or whatever. I think this is kind of filling that and then i think the communist answer is making the argument. That like know what you're what you're feeling is actually like you're yearning to like be live in cooperation with your fellow man and not in this weird manmade alienated fucking battle with you know in our other all the time in and when you feel that contradiction stuff. I'm talking about like when last summer. Like when i just woke up some happening. I don't know what my brian ten is. Just going off lake. That's a better world yearning to be birthed out of us look at all times but you know but it's just hard. Yeah no giving birth painful bloodied stuff now not like giving birth. It hurts because it probably isn't going to happen because now her yeah area like it hurts because it's like a hurts the way a bird sees in a cage bird fly by. It's kind of fucking pain. It's like you get it you catches smell of this possibility. You don't know what the fuck it is the moment you start calling it. Something people are like. What are you fucking communist like. No i don't. I don't think i'm fucking communist. I don't know is that bad. And then you know but but the to me like and this is an embarrassing thing and all anyone listening. You're communist friends. you've probably hate me. Forgive me okay but but the you know what. I'm sorry man. I don't mean embarrass you but burning man is like a ren faire for communism o obvious. What's that way into this. It's like yeah you gotta pay to get in all the critiques of it. You could go. Look there's infinite critiques. But if you've been living in a fucking society as i have where everything is outside your family or friends is based on some form of exchange and even friends think of dating people go on a date some people and they're like calculating how much the other person knows and eating with people. It's a big ritual. The end is like okay. You add the hamburger. And i had the wine. But i'll pay for your wind jerry. That fucking thing but like suddenly go to this place where the only thing.

"Trajectory you get off of understanding. The minute is where we sort of move next. And so every time we do another step and then hopefully it ends appear. But you're right it is inherently theoretical. You know and so the way that that works. That's scientific method. Sort of works is like this. I'm gonna have to do a really cliche thing like in movies. Where they start with the big bang and then you know please So big bang happens and then planet earth and then there's like water and there's little organism in it and it grows legs yati yada next thing. You know evolution into hunter gatherer society where everyone's communal and then what happened after that right so clans formed and then villages formed and then contrary to whatever and thinks like that part of history for pocket says like oh they were just chilling like all that barbarian stuff is made up with her but fighting whatever so after villages than someone figures out agriculture right. And when you figure out agriculture when suddenly you're not hanging out with your friends growing the food it's one person's job grow it. Then you have this situation where one person is getting control of all the resources and the make up reasons why you should be nice to them and they shouldn't have to contribute as much or whatever and you got like kings and religious the king.

"To fight away. This fucking governments to being imposed upon him. Bring him up. also because i needed namedrop. My great great great grandfather was a mexican anarchists who worked with a guy named ricardo floors mogollon in the russian. I didn't know that before. I got into all this shit and then i found out afterwards crazy. What are what are your thoughts on anarchism versus communism. Well i don't think the two things are in competition with each other I think that ultimately i think that communism is the goal and i think archaism is like it's very practical and intuitive and I mean just very similar. It's just that some people go off the deep end with dark isn't whether like we can't have you know a dmv or whatever it's like you know we're we right. We need zero regulation. What's really the what's interesting about. The two things is that they're not actually conflict with each other. The goal of communism is to basically flip over society. Right put the people in charge of the state and slowly dissolve the state and then end in communism which is a kind of everything's been melted down. We're just kind of hanging out you know. We don't have a military anymore and stuff like that which looks a lot like what enter kissed sort of argue for but think the method the method of how we're getting there is kind of what's up for debate between the two groups i i don't know. Because because communism that method is via this revolution and also the imposition of of the state to try to figure out a way to redistribute all this stuff. And then like it's like a cast on a broken bone we're going to keep the cast on until we heal and become humans again and then we'll take the cast off and within that. Wouldn't you say as a lot idealism in the sense that you're dreaming that at some point people who have power and theoretically power that's been going on for a while because it's should isn't going to happen all at once organised be like we did it. We're it's a communist planet now and then and then let go of all the stuff that seems to be part of it which is like look if we are going to do a revolution fuck or not gonna. What are we going to do against the state military and state police forces. We need weapons to and you know what i mean. We're going to be that we're gonna be militarized and you know what i mean so that to me is the part where it's like if only there was like something that we'd experienced in our contact with humanity is a whole over recorded history that gave us the impression that some point people who have power like here you go yes yours are now. That's a really good question. And you're right It's actually one to tell you that lennon made the exact same metaphor instead of cast. He called it. A scaffolding was highly puts on the outside of building in the scaffolding falls away once the building yet. It's kind of thinking through the same way right and like you're right. So when people talk about like utopian communism just see these these jokes every now and then got about like Was called intergalactic space fully automated luxury gay space communism. A mean that was going around. It was really cool. I think you will enjoy this guy specifically that all was based off of this south american trotskyists. Who went completely crazy. isn't he. Was jape assad us and he like went off alone by himself and then came back out and he had started a colt where he was like. Okay here's how communism is to happen. We have to embrace nuclear war. And then the dolphins talk to us in aliens show up and he was the three pillars of his philosophy with dolphins nuclear war and aliens crazy loss. Meet aliens for some reason. I liked the dolphins nuclear war. I mean i don't know maybe it's like when you have to when you're drunk and you have to throw up you're trying not to but you know you'll feel better. Yeah so this is crazy. 'cause he was imagining yet is thing it was like aliens. Wanna bring socialism to the planet. But we're like for us to stop like with award stuff completely nonsense. That's not how this works really. So the way marxist works is taking looking at all of the patterns of human history that have led up to now and then really using that only to project like the slightest amount in the future. Like you can only pr. He's this thing where you can psychically think like a minute in advance or something like that. That's inroads and he's like the.

"It seems like He's choosing between being a psychopathic about being a normal person and like especially in the last episode. He even addresses it in his. I can't feel things when I'm in politics when I'm out of politics I can feel things and I had a lot of mixed emotions in that final episode especially because this woman that you know who's supposed to be his first lady runs out on her wedding which was so interesting us and she even addresses the fact with a in a conversation with him but being in this relationship with you was never healthy for me which is true because from what I could tell he was never never really supporting her. It was always. I will do anything for you. And that's just the way our relationship is which is of course why I think he loved her for that. Reason isn't she was there to serve so then it was really interesting to see her completely abandoned fad. was that his. I think that the nicest guy I've ever met. Yeah the nicest guy ever met on her wedding day to go and be a part of this campaign leading to be here did you. That's a separate conversation precision but yes I did. We're all willing to put our lives on. Hold here that's take you. I went into the show without reading anything about which I was glad to do. But I thought it was GONNA be like American crime story in that. It was just like different politician every time right or this was just a one season thing And so then it went off you know and you know the last episode is not whether or not he becomes CBS president at his school but lake. You know going off into this different story line was really interesting and unexpected. I really loved. I'll I'll go back to that. The final episode in a second. Because it's my favorite episode. But what did we think about. I WanNa talk about other characters and other actors in this show because the thing about the politician is that like Ryan Murphy comes with baggage rightly grammar becomes with like his long career. Doing multiple different types of John Resin than like throwing all the honors in in a blender and doing things that sort of our rule breaking and away and lake controversial or whatever but he also has his cast of characters that he brings along with him. Brad Foul Chuck who in the CO creator of this show whose pulse husband and like direct. It's an episodes. wrote some episodes and then his cast like Jessica. Lang is in so many of his American Ori Shows. You've watched other Murphy shows like I have. Do you like this little universe that he's assembled like his at comforting to you. Is that part of the reason you liked it. I mean and as a huge horror movie. Fan I was. It was insisted that I need to watch American horror story. Because I hadn't an I I loved it. It was great especially because like for me. I like the thought of being terrified. All the time is like kind of exhausting so I lake that he like Ryan Murphy in the Ryan Murphy Universe. It was like all right. Let's let's be scary but let's also soap opera. That's sort of what it feels like. Even I watched American crime story story the Oj Simpson trial and that also kind of felt like even though this was chronicling something that actually happened. It was always heightened less how it always feels in his university person. I think once you're okay with that I think it depends on who you are as a TV watcher. But I think you do have to accept the fact that it is a heightened world that you're living in Ryan Murphy's Murphy's world and I I'm I'm okay with it yet and I think that a a good example of that as the Jessica Lynch dusty and infinity. Yes The Jessica Lincoln Zoey Deutsche characters. It's like This grandmother is making her granddaughter Sec for her own like personal gain but also because she has a problem and like this is what she does and she like needs to be a caretaker or you know she needs to be responsible for this person but that even down to the Ricardo storyline storyline where infinity gets a boyfriend did have you seen mommy deaden dearest. I have four Z. They turn. It's a documentary that they turned into a Hulu show with Patricia. The cat or cat but that is a true story about like a mother who did this to her daughter. Yeah and it's I mean it's a real Munchausen by proxy. It's a real thing that happens ray. Sharp object sharp objects yes. I've seen that much very very trendy very trendy but it's it's wild to see him. Insert these things that are so topical and Real and dark and tragic and then he makes them funny and twisted shore and part of it is like do I even like this like is this. This is making me uncomfortable. But the now then she singing I was like what is this your genre because it on cry me then. It's like fully just a bizarre comedy like dark comedy. Yeah and it's occasionally musical. There's some singing. Yeah how would you classify this to the uninitiated. Like as a comedy-drama like comedy. Like what is this to you I would. I would say it's a dark drum. Come it's it's definitely Dr go up but I would say overall funny definitely funny I think one of my I favoured exchanges in the show happens when infinity has realized that what her grandmother is doing to her. She moves into a hotel room. And and then Jessica Lane comes and tries to like unit talker down or whatever. She's she's been. She's coming in with the blackmailer the threats and she's like some something thing like she's like. I want to go a rat a to happened or something. I want to go to the restaurant where Radha to happen. And she's like redstone coke or I thought that was so funny..

effect any sacrificing millions of dollars cancel cancel and because he asked for permission coming i get the argument that he was taking advantage because he was a superstar above this i get it done okay maybe it wasn't like he wasn't aware of that okay but see as far as his co. michael jackson may or may not little boys people still bump his music you separate the art from the artists his body of work still up there with anybody the murphys the priors the ship house dude dude he legit is my favorite yeah now i gotta fuck in your favor no louis louis CK's my favorite right now yeah i'm writing in thomson gura and kristalina like the your shit is but i know it's just like okay let me see what else you go in this you fill me it's not it's not a superstar it's just this is there on that trajectory take the fucking solid is named who'd toit dared their shows are very tight well written well what did you see the new sees what did you think personally at those little weird like with the producers in the back of she just standing there like that really was weird and then like the way he did it like it was like a hey sorry but i'm sorry because i have to be sorry like oh look my friend said hey i made anybody feel that way like i'm sorry i i think that i guess it felt like a little bit like a hey you're a super super superstar like you have community would not community parks and rec you are one of the big timers right now yeah yeah so we need if you keep making that money for us so i didn't feel like it was him i felt like there was other people pulling the strings to like this is going to peace everybody that's what i felt like okay i kinda took him at his word that yeah china did are now much bottom do you feel that he's i mean i took it of it that he was like okay you know who i was before those enact this is who i am that's that's that's what i took out of it and i took him for the word it could be bullshit yeah of course it can you know maybe he was just saying actually i would play well with me i took him seriously i was like oh because it's funny it was bad it wasn't but i didn't feel like 'cause his stand up to his old standards like fucking i know but but that was a character share shoes fucking so he was he was kind of lame terresa care that's what i that's how i saw it and i got it cool let's see let's see what else you can do you know if that really was a character you'd better come out with something else that's good and i thought that was the decent goodbye to what people thought who a season sorry was in you know but then he goes it can be very always come back and do the same shit so i don't know does good chapelle fucking love it i loved loved loved one of his top fogging specials personally my opinion came out like political climate you know the fuck in social climate like you can't say this you can't you can't tweet that and he just don't give a fuck he's enough money to fucking turn down fucking a few hundred million from century now like he's i felt like key he did it his way too big for me like you don't give a fuck about the feedback about people not liking it about people whatever and he goes where a lot of comics won't which is where like comics are supposed to go you know you go to the like dante jess nicks of the world you know like the or you can make fun of that yet and she just came in pop up up up pas the t the be the g. in the car do that and slogging that was great permanent those good how many other people can do it and do it well you know okay so i watched most of it most of it yeah i know what i do i late night watch things during the week but i fall asleep to them and then finished watching the weekend he dingle back british i haven't gone back for chapelle okay so this is a half take take my opinion of it so far with a grain of salt so from what i saw it was fuck it was funny okay but also felt forced like it took away it took away from the standup because it was almost exaggerated like this is what i'm doing obviously going to be saying shit that i'm going to try to your people which i get people fuck into sensitive but what i'm saying i felt like took away from the artistic part of it you know for me for me and i the wrong versa with the season i felt like he was just like he's been for awhile he's been doing a lot of clubs shit him so people are dying share you wouldn't put a special and how man i felt like it was yeah no and i'm not saying it wasn't funny again guys was it was just forgets fucking shit pal dude it's fucking funny but i saw what he was doing you know what i'm saying because you know good comedian you're not thinking in about what they're doing motive you're not talking about motive by meals almost instantly oh this is what you're doing okay what's in it for me personally i was that made it pretty obvious not now i'm not saying was an enjoyable i'm like i said i'm going to go back again and i might love it but it's still that's how that's how it came off to me not in again i'm not saying i disagree shouldn't be saying fucking comedy nothing's off limits when it comes to comedy dude and it was funny did like them tying the whole l g b it was good also like the whole vaccum always so bad remember them comedy lines and louis lines the one about fuck what he's done boertien i think was an abortion that yum if you have the right to do abortion guys have the right to not be involved in life if you're allowed to kill should be allowed to abandon them is kind of ah obviously delivered ill fucking hilarious like oh shit that's the one about oh fucking what's your name nancy reagan the just say no i can't was yeah yeah see i don't wanna say for has like give him that stream give him that money but real far through the so fucking good good really personally i just felt like a lot of people are scared to go to those type of topics ooh they played say they go they go to the line but they don't cross the line they're just like oh look look i'm a comedian i can do this i think it's just different types of comedy and then she was like fuck your line but there's a whole bunch of chapelle xxx not pretentious palo's one special thing he's just he's just able to formulate a story better than everybody else just bunch of fucking out of the comedian saying just outlandish things even worse things out they're they're just can't put it together so let's not pretend that him talking about shit that society deems not shouldn't be talking about but something new that's not that's not that's not something just i as you and i know you'll be like oh yeah he's way worse i can tell you joey is way worse but everybody listening to me like was that yeah awesome so he's a fucking idiot he's fucking bad as far as idiot in the best sense the entire love joey deals but he gave me like everybody talked about that ship partial for like a solid three or four days which is long time for stand up comedy special understand that because everybody they came a lot of the the chapelle band not bandwagon but the the phantom of chapelle susan you know it's it's like a rap album it's like a fucking somebody he left yeah created a new like just this new interest in japan like who you know he actually gave up all that millions and you know all the rumors he went to africa losing his mind comes back all yoke for like a like old school like paul bunyan type shit like a tall tale like yeah who would who else in the right mind would do that yeah so i mean but bill over bill burr fuck so good see he says he says a lot of shit that like white people are supposed to be this there are a lot of people say that he's the best out there now i personally don't i mean he's top five hi book but his every he's the best like right now what okay so spoiler i'm gonna talk about a premise in bill burr okay guys co watch it if you haven't already they just don't ruin it when you do watch i want to ask your opinion of it with the one he says like my my daughter has really met me oh yeah i did do it okay to those of you listening my daughter doesn't know that i drink beer doesn't know that i drink because i have it i don't drink oh you know what i'm lying at disneyland actually had two beers fucking hot as fuck but that's when it's hot as you go we're not his daughter that check it you know how has that little canteen of fucking like water line has truly refreshing no earlier i said i mean has pledged on the inside that is you cannot wash it off for career red on the inside nobody gave me like i i'm not hiding koy am from her i'm just like okay that has to be a good person to society so that that's where it started okay and that's how they did there's like almost like being faked because i'm a different person when i'm around other people so i just became a better person trying to like i said i'm a piece of shit trying to not be such a piece of sheet so it's a work in progress right but when he said that i'll offer through that's that's me 'cause like i said countless times i'm gonna tell her all the bachelor and tyler about jail tyler about this tyler about.

one of them one owns right right i mean they had some things very i mean be a better person i'm all for that don't fucking yeah let's not go there dude it's a lovely real fast and it's family show even though it's rated r. it's a family show and then i could talk to people have told me like you should go like how do you say it might eight theus friends are not as they're not bad people you know that's the bad correlation but the dude you should go art on them it's not a debate club it's not on the no no like on the religion people don't believe that shot up to my boy human being delayed dude like the conversations i've had with a few of the you know like i love it could i'm yeah i'm a little liberal like yourself i don't believe in a fucking i power i don't believe in it's all they kind of relate to that right and other people relate because they're like oh you know i'm a fucking bad myself i'm fucking immigrants so different people relief for different reasons but some of them do the way you talk to me in through the DM like that is not what you said on your show and i'm gonna do i told you this last year we did out when we went to go see the delorean's else better show delirious check them out all dude i'm leery the deliverance job mixture of what would you say oldies mix scars actually like a little fuck a little reggae ish it's dope is fought their dope i'm on the way here as a matter of fact music to play when you wake up early on the saturday i don't know he'll love waking up early everybody knows i most of adult life has been spending working nights and weekends and i am not an early person by choice or by fucking nature you know like there's a study i've shared it a few times nobody ever fucking lexical you're going to be a burly to enjoy the daily now manage twenty four hours as long as you enjoy the majority of it doesn't matter it's the night or the morning yeah it's a different experience or i like my experience that's cool you're saying some people like sunrises some people like that or back to religion accurate so those those those the people that want you to go hard on on religious people i get it because i used to be there and yeah we talked about that it's funny because when i first started thinking about religion was late i think in life probably like maybe senior year in high school and i started into the bible because i thought i knew i was raised catholic but you know mom only sent center you know she only took to church every now and then really i i didn't know anything i was just there had to be there you know so when i started looking into religion i mean i started with the bible started i he recorded audio was it audiotape and there's not audiotape will redone your phone audio book on audio book yeah i guess you'd call your book assert listening to and then i just i lost interest because it's just like i understood what they were saying i've heard it my whole life if i was more interested in like something that's more has evidence you know because once once i started expanding different religions like you know i got into seeing what the hell islam was about granted i didn't go deep into this started singing oh what do you believe in what are the major religions would have you believe in what do you believe in you know part of you know in islam was just purely research than you know when i was a senior nineteen twenty years old i started doing moisture again remember talent i guess that cultures surrounded with buddhism so one of the things my coach dues before fight they would take us to a buddhist temple and they will bless us and so i kind of been to like a buddhist ceremony and that was more pleasurable than unlike any christian function church function i've been to or or any catholic church that i've been to because it was just it was it was it was peaceful are not explain it it'll just like people were more mindful i don't even know what that means to be honest it's just a feeling really i count even ought explain it it was just it felt nice and feel like it had to do any being or give anything for what they were offering you know what i'm saying i think part of the ritual was they would feed you they would no questions asked do you think about it everybody was a real buddhist you know and most of most of them were asian and then there's this these three hispanics coming in because they're multi fighters looking to get blessed but they didn't look at us differently they didn't do they accepted us commend cool so you know so thousand my first experience religion in i started searching for accent what was real what was or what's believed to be real i mean are you talking about history he kind of had to rely on what on the evidence that's out there i mean i'm not claiming to be like a like i understand the complete scientific method but i we talked about her school you know i i i remember learning about it and you know i understand it takes science for human development you know when technically cool development i mean and so i started looking into facts and then that's when religion or this eighth in the story of one god started breaking apart so i was i guess if i look back i was when i was aggressive trying to disprove religion like the jesus or the virgin mary or he walked on water that he he tom rose after three days and you know all arguing that they say in the bible that has been heavily edited throughout years so we don't even know if it's originally ex bring part of los track wills i see where was i going with this the religious went eighteen nineteen years there's like searching for not religion but like you were questioning yeah so to win all that started breaking apart IM i oh there you go where was i i was feeling i guess looking back angry i was pissed off because i was like to feel like i was like to you know this hold on my oh you know up until like seventeen eighteen years old i thought you know praying pain we are actually connecting with somebody there but you know the more you learn about science especially astro science and physics and again on that was big for me again i don't claim to be an expert in it but i was exposed to a lot of information because.

"flores" Discussed on Two Broads Talking Politics

"Her in episode featuring special guest so flurries deputy governor of Illinois biweekly this partnership between author and Speaker Rebecca Save and to broads talking politics shares with you stories of the movement to elect our first woman president an inspirational advice in strategy related to that movement enjoy hi everyone this is Kelly polly with too broad talking politics and this is an episode of the vote Auteur in series a collaboration with author Rebecca side. This series brings us the stories of the path to electing our first woman president so lewer. BECCA and I'm going to turn it over to you to introduce our guests well hi Kelly. I'm just thrilled to be here today as I always am actually but I realized life on the way they're doing this interview that it was kind of a a unique occasion for me which is our guest today. Seoul Flores who is Deputy Governor Governor for the State of Illinois Governor. Jay Pritzker is a former student of mine so I'm like. Oh wow this never happened before. This is cool. I'm glad JV thought she was a smart as I did. What we're GONNA do today just by way of framing the conversation for this news is as you all know when we focus on trying to elect a woman president and what we need to do to get ourselves there and get hurt their? We're really talking about women attaining executive a political power and we've talked about this a lot and that's really why. I was particularly anxious. I perhaps say enthusiastic about having soul so along the program as a deputy governor of one of the nation's largest states. She has significant executive political power. It is appointed power. She's also the only woman in that position. Although as you'll hear her talking a moment there are other women in wonderful senior positions and at least some this way. Maybe Illinois is showing the way forward. I'd like to think so just to kick it off. Welcome soul. Thank you for having me. You're welcome and we thought that because you were singular in so many ways in terms of your personal background and your professional background if you could just begin by sharing with us you know sort of what was the from there to here journey for a young woman a young woman of color a the woman who took an unorthodox route leases it appears to me so we thought if you could just start and share that with us that would be great yeah absolutely so. I always talk about my background. in terms of how I got here and citizens that I made intentionally or unintentionally or the universe divers help make for me sometimes the way and I think like many of us many of your listeners we've been deeply influenced by our families and that is definitely true in my case so I'm first generation Puerto Rican Rebecca and Kelly and my parents and grandparents aunts and almost all aunts aunts and uncles came to Chicago from the he go in the nineteen sixties and seventies and very much you know landed here with nothing and you know connections to community of faith which helped my grandfather get employed and find housing and help my grandmother get her children into school but at the same time also helped him get connected to community and I would like to share the story because my first example from my earliest earliest life of you know what civic what is political is actually what my grandparents did so they were foster care parents for the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and they did this in the nineteen seventies and there was a a lawsuit at combinator consent decrees call the book especially. If you'RE GONNA remove children from a home you've got a place them into culturally linguistically appropriate placements grandparents signed up to do this and I and of course it's twenty years. They fostered a tiny kids. they ended up raising four like their own. They didn't go through a formal permanent adoption but they raised three sisters or is after their their mother died. There's a why I say that because we all lived and you know three story walk ten minutes on Armitage Avenue and Lincoln Park and party with very different Jason and dad's Day but you know I'd wake up one morning they'd be like cues your new more team out of play with which means in management cousin and I saw my family do this and for for me. This is really an expression what family was so this idea of Camelia but also I get like what was political for my grandparents what was community and how without having to influence that do these action and then my aunts and uncles were very engaged in local efforts at UIC and the seventies and eighties and also really engaged and the mayor of Washington administration my uncle having worked for him for a while. I have my first experience door knocking when I was ten years years old and I had pigtails and my mother was smart enough to know that if you send a cute little girl up the stairs and have her ring the doorbell chances are that they'll give you a few seconds of where they shut the door on your favorite and so that was my first example of and again I share all this because this was a really important in terms of the influencing again what was civic what was political and I'll share one other brief story because I think is also really important. When I was a seven years old my mother and my aunts signed up to be volunteers in a program called little sisters of the poor and and we were matched with an older woman her name was Margaret and the whole premise of the program for listeners now is you have folks who are match the senior who sometimes living alone or isolated late because a lot of family and you just engage them in fellowship and you know come Broderie so that seniors aren't feeling so alone and so we had our senior her name was Margaret and she was a white woman in her eighties and you know the only thing I wanted to do at that time was wake up on Saturday morning. Cartoons and my mother was like don't forget we're getting out of us and we're GONNA go see Margaret and I don't know what it is that when I was I was afraid of older people right and then going back home and you know it was cluttered cluttered and dark and maybe not as clean as as I had expected and my mother was just adding you know every single week we go and we visit and we and cook a meal for her do a little bit of cleaning and I- resisted resisted resisted and then one we get I remember this so clearly. Margaret pulled me aside and said well you know I never had any granddaughters but if I had a granddaughter I'm wanted to be like you and in that moment moment what I got was just an exchange of human love and I also got a new language for it at that age later on I did. which was that serve? S. is love and is an expression of it. until I was one of my earliest memories both my family's influencing the work they did and then my direct experiences and so of course and we'll get into this earth. It's no wonder why I grew up wanting to do service breath and being called to serve the public so I wonder if you could talk some about building networks. You know just from the very beginning of what you were. We're saying how important it was that your grandfather had the network of his church and you've got networks to your family at any of us who are all involved in politics in Chicago the importance it's of networks but that's true everywhere of course especially for women so if you could talk sort of a bow how you sort of consciously build a network and think about that in how that it helps you know obviously are in an appointed position now so that's something that you have to have a network to get to yeah so thank you for that and it's critically important and I think you should have networks and build them and some are unintentionally kind of fall into them and you're like oh part of this and I didn't know it and others there was an intention analogy around you because you're usually working on English or passionate about the issue and so you both wanted to contribute and off the be contributed to and so I I think about my work over the last seventeen years having been signing executive director of La Casa Norte very early on I recognized and being a a- and being a founding executive director is that you know I'm a social entrepreneur essentially so we're building this business. It is a mission based business but we're building this and I learned very early on that. you have to ask for help and you have to do it. In a way that is relentless that are focused and I think if you WANNA be effective you've got to have these networks so that you are actually duplicating than leveraging jor time and resources and talent as opposed to spending wheel or reinventing wheels and my initial networks I remember building. I don't know that I would call it a network. I don't have language for that but I certainly knew I had a list and a community of folks that I went two years later. books would ask me speaking speaking graduate classes or speaking on panels and people would say how is it that you were successful or or you know in. How how do you think you came to grow the mission of the work and I always point wait to community and AKA networks as being a part of that success so very early on my initial communities that I was the part of intentionally buildings were nonprofit ones no specifically focused on Human Services and you know had a cadre of executive directors could call and say how do you do with it how do that how did you did. I do with that and I was so fortunate that on the receiving end wasn't incredible group of Individuals Wolf who welcome me into the space took it upon himself to mentor me 'cause they side as expanding the pie of resources and as opposed to competing for its and who will help open doors to me and over time those networks hatch addition and gentleman of an attitude probably probably like I don't know ten years ago now. became really engages a network of Latinos and women and women of Color specifically in the nonprofit sector and not exclusive to human services however but just women working in this sector and same thing it was about building camaraderie read it was about understanding that we are not alone. This work can be isolating and very lonely. You can't unload on your deploy. Easy can't unload on your donors you sometimes you can unload on board members but even then known quite knows what you're going through except except for another executive and that same kind of position and so that became increasingly important.
