History of Atheism
"On this episode Five Missing Church history, we are trying something a little different usually talk about things within theism and we were very much interested into theistic tradition. But today, let's talk about the opposite of that and the history of atheism. Well, you could say atheism goes all the way back to the very beginning a back to the garden. You can say it goes back to the psalms. Isn't it psalm fourteen verse one that says the fool has said in his heart, there is no god. But what we're talking about on this episode is the history of Atheism in the modern world as an English term. The first time we see it is in the middle of the fifteen hundred s, but we see especially in the modern world of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. If we look at today's landscape, the latest poll I saw goes back to twenty fourteen, but it says that just under three percent of Americans claim to be atheists. Now, if you throw into that category, the so called Nuns, these are folks with no religious. Affiliation and really no religious inclination. Then we're up in the twenty percentile you might call them practical atheists. So we've got confessing atheists and practical atheists where do they all come from? Well, back in the seventeen twenty s we find an atheist, but he seems to be a literary creation is Tom Puzzle and this figure Tom Puzzle a fictional literary creation which show up in the pages of various magazines in the colonies and he would be used from time to time to comment on current events or to add some color to current events. But what we really find in the seventeen hundreds and into the eighteen hundreds is the precursor to atheism, which is deism. So theism of course believes in God who created the world, a god who is active in sustaining the world see ISM has with the idea of sovereignty in providence that God is controlling his universe controlling. As R, C sproul would say every single molecule there are no maverick molecules and also very active in the lives of people and in his universe through the doctrine of Providence God is intimately involved not only in creating the world but sustaining the world and bringing it to fruition and fulfilment of his good pleasure as theism. deism removes God from the daily life and removes God from actively involved in sustaining creation. God sort of creates the earth sort of like you start a top rate and you get it spinning then you just let it go. Well. That's what God did. He created the world and then he just lets it go. He's a little removed. That's DEISM. A precursor to atheism in what we see in the nineteenth and twentieth century as deism floats around especially in the academy and gained traction among the sort of intellectual and philosophical class we see the various philosophical schools that promote atheism. We see this in Europe and we see it in America. We see it didn't thinkers like Frederick Nietzsche who come to the conclusion that God is dead and we killed him that we have arrived at a point in the modern world, where God is no longer tenable thesis and out of that comes a very desperate despairing dark philosophy and worldview called Nielsen. We see it in some of the schools of thought that her apparently more sophisticated in the twentieth century we see it in the logical positive ISM and in some of those more scientific or properly, we should say scientism worldviews that want to reduce everything that is knowable to what is observable by the five senses and so creation the act of creation God himself, the transcendent world, the spiritual world, the world of faith all of this is outside of the. Realm of science according to scientists, and so God is not part of that equation. Well, that's a brief sketch of the history of atheism and I think we're taking right back to psalm fourteen one. Aren't we? The fool has said in his heart, there is no god.
Interview with George Varanakis of The Portrait Masters
"Welcome back to another episode I am your host Frederick Ben Johnson today. Once again on the hot seat, I have my good friend. Mr George Very. You may have heard his name in the industry.

Do we just not do anything this year or do we try to do our virtual conference if you will I don't really love the virtual name I was like call it digital conference that's just me but yeah. We made that decision and moved back our dates a little bit. So we are September first of the twenty third three days we've got so much content some amazing content. We're doing things a little bit differently than I think what a lot of lot of the. Virtual trade show conferences. You'll see out there in the photo industry or just overall We went out this a little bit differently in that we prerecorded everything and not like prerecord Webcam or zoom kinda thing we prerecorded like shootouts and we had people at our studio We had people at Peter Hurley Studio in New York shooting, and so we've got these amazing shootout through Canon Sony and pro photo. We've got keynote speakers like a tab of the coffee from her famous Bravo show. She is one of our keynotes and she's just incredible Her brother show was Tabitha takes over. We've got mark seller. WHO's one of the most amazing photographers on the planet. You he's done countless numbers of covers for Cube, fair the role I think he's got he's done over one hundred rolling stone cover so I'm really excited of our lineup and we're GONNA do this in a really fun way. It's GonNa be really fun over the three days that we're doing this. We've got kind of a trade show section. We've got a content section. We're GONNA be giving away a ton of stuff and that sue it Nikki closer will be live here in the studio Kinda just introducing a all the classes sue out was just decided a couple of minutes ago. WHO's GonNa do for closing keynote keynote live so we're so most of it is prerecorded, we will have live host, but the content that's come out of this is off the charts I'm really excited. In you when you say you're talking about sue brice. Right, yes? Yes right. These Subaru you should put it in front of her name. Yeah. you WANNA have you set the stage on just a portrait masters for the folks that may not have heard about the conference? What what so Thank you for inviting me to the last one I was I was there in Arizona. Last. Yeah. It was. It was that's the word. It was a blast. Folks that may not have heard of the conference described what what this sort of you know the the soul of the conference is intended to be win it's real versus now when. Virtual or digital doesn't it seem like that was ten years ago. Does right. It's I feel twenty years older I, know. Like as my hair. So the Portrait Masters Conference, it's really a boutique conference in that we have only we cap it at five hundred people We have only nine speakers, one stage, one room. There's no breakout classes we really tried to simplify it and we wanted to give people inexperienced that they never forget. So we added so many different things to this conference that you won't see at other places. For example, we put shooting days in the. Trade show. So some of which are sponsored can have a couple of shooting base Pro Photo will have a couple of shooting bays and basically, and we do a bunch of our own. So basically, it's a model backdrop lighting and you just go and shoot and people went absolutely crazy fort when we when we launched it at it, really we kind of created like a Disneyland photographers almost where you could go in. You could talk to the vendors you could shoot, you could touch. You could feel kind of the things that we love about trade shows. Right you have that opportunity to to touch feel products but also like you could read a camera camera body from any of the vendors, the camera houses and Kinda go around the show and and shoot the networking part of it, which this is one that suit came up with but a red ribbon for someone that hadn't been there to our conference. Before if you're wearing a red ribbon, it was to show everybody else. Hey, come say hi and their brand new they don't know anybody and it was. Just, it ended up being such an incredible experience for people because you go to a trade show, you thought the Portrait Masters amazing show that you wanted to go to it's it's an expensive ticket it's eighteen hundred dollars, but it includes all your your meals, and some other things that we we do. But for the Red Ribbon, it's just amazing 'cause I've I saw a dozen times people just may be sitting by themselves or walking by themselves and other attendants would go and say, hey, how are you come sit with me and and it was just that networking part that that really kind of came out of it, which is really cool.

Never Be Royals
"It has been the habit of kings throughout the world to hire tasters to test their food on the off chance. Some oppressed masses poisoned it. But Henry, the eighth cast, a wider net with his paranoia. He wanted to be certain. No one was going to poison him transdermal either meaning through the skin. He ordered that every morning, the servant, the WHO changed the kings sheets had to kiss every part of the sheets, pillows and blankets they had touched to prove they hadn't smeared poison on them. They also had to test for poison on the cushion of his son. Edwards Chamber Pot. Though the historic record doesn't say how? My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. The term mad king re entered the common lexicon a few years back. Thanks to George R. Martin's Song of ice and fire books. We'd have more than enough examples from Europe alone to choose from. George. The third born in Seventeen thirty eight was the English king who lost the American colonies. Though anti-monarchists would record stories of bizarre behavior like George Mistaking and trees for Frederick the Great? The king really did have mental health problems that manifested themselves in different periods of his life. During these times, he suffered from insomnia and talked incessant nonsense for hours. It was not uncommon for a single sentence to contain four hundred words. It has long been suspected that King George suffered from Porfirio. A genetic metabolic disorder that causes depression hallucinations, constipation, purple urine, and severe abdominal pain. However, as will come up frequently today new evidence in theories undermined that original thinking. One of the medicines that king was treated with was Gentian. This plant with its deep blue flowers is still used today as a mild tonic that may turn the urine blue. His incessant liquidity as it was called and his habit of talking until foam ran from his mouth are features that can be seen today in patients with extreme cases of mania from psychiatric illnesses such as bipolar disorder. Besides benign sounding herbal treatments, King George would be restrained in a chair with iron straps for hours. He was also bled forced to vomit and starved suffering under the humour old or four humors school, of medicine. A recent study based on the examination of King. George's hair shows high levels of arsenic administered to him as part of the cure, but would have served to only worsen his symptoms. In the last ten years of his life, his son and Heir George, the fourth served as regent. Fans of the show blackadder will remember George the fourth brilliantly portrayed by Hugh Laurie opposite the Tischler, Rowan Atkinson character. A somewhat annoying little side note when the play the madness of George the third was made into a film. In nineteen, ninety four, the title was changed to the madness of King George. Why for fear that American audiences would think it was a sequel and wouldn't go to see it because they hadn't seen the first two. When your business is running countries and even whole empires you WanNa keep that in the family and the best way to ensure that is to make sure everybody marries somebody there already related to. When you say it like that, it doesn't sound like such a good plan. But that was how royal houses conducted themselves for centuries to ensure they retained their fortunes in the days before even a basic understanding of genetics. When close relatives reproduce, it increases their offspring's chances of being affected by. Recessive traits for all kinds of physical and cognitive disabilities, including things like hemophilia and cystic fibrosis, as well as deformities like the Habsburg jaw. These incestuous pairings also run a greater risk of reduced fertility higher infant mortality, congenital birth defects, certain kinds of cancer suppressed immune systems, and overall smaller adult size. A condition referred to as pedigree collapse. Some royal families kept things closer-knit than others. Maria I of Portugal married her father's younger brother Pedro when she was twenty six and he was forty three. Their son and Heir Joseph married his aunt Maria Sister Benedetta. Therefore, Pedro's daughter-in-law sister
Taking Off! with Aircraft Photography
"Welcome back to another episode of this week and Photo GonNa Treat for you today I'm speaking with John Thou-. He's down in southern California and he's doctor for slash illustrator who's WHO's made his mark taking amazing photographs of some amazing aircraft, and I'm excited to talk to him John Welcome to the show man how you doing. Frederick I'm doing great. Thanks you know you you you are very welcome. I'm excited dive into this 'cause you as you and I discussed our pre interview. Air Force, x Airforce Guy Air Force combat photo journalist used to take pictures of these planes haven't been in any of these planes the. No the only aircraft that I've flown in a U. H one in you know. Huey right. So photographers used to fly around with the doors open taking pictures of rocket launches and stuff like that. But I never had the opportunity to get in a fast burner. One of these guys. So a jealous. Don't be totally jealous. We've been around a whole lot of them, but I gotTA. Tell you post nine eleven that change for us to, and there's there's a lot of that I, the majority of my flight time in the amazing aircraft been really warbirds We've done some stuff with the air force where were in Casey one, thirty, five and I say. I say we that is not the royal we I it's I know we're talking about my catastrophe but my two sons have been a very integral part of slick pixels and we've been photographing with knee since they were. Gosh. Publishing were about eight years old each and so that's That's been a part of that. So when I say we, you want everybody to understand I'm talking about the three of us in that respect. But yeah, with the fast with the quote on quote fast air. We have not had that opportunity as much as we would alive. Civilian stuff and and some transports in some dice photo platforms but anyhow, don't be too jealous. AM still jealous though I mean. To be around those aircraft and and shoot 'em how we got you into this. Line of photography, what was the path that you that led you to the runway? That's a great question. So as a kid, my dad was a pilot private pile even though we had a commercial rating as as my grandfather was really my grandfather that I flew with primarily He was kind of the head electricity out at point Mugu and so in addition to his Gosh in addition to his pilot's love for aviation as piloting skills in world war two, he had flung be seventeens. Primarily stateside So he wasn't he was not on combat missions at that time, but anyway it at Magoo he had one of these things was to help with the air show every year. So from about the time I was about seven years old I was at I couldn't get enough point. Know I was out there and a garage in wonderful navy stuff and air force stuff and whatever every single year and. My family would always go out one day a year, and then I talked him into taking be with him and and I kind of go out there with him and he had set it up to where I was sitting with the pilots and going back and forth with the whether it was the blue angels or whoever needs set me up with some vendor on the flight line that I could go get lunch and I pretty much have the run of the place all weekend from the time of as eight years old. So that's what started it. I had a little Brownie camera that belonged to my mother that. You know there's actually GonNa, get a book I have coming out later this year there's a couple of those little shots still back in those days they used to they used to fire live sidewinders during an airshow and. Again today was pretty great. So how did you manage to avoid enlisting or signing up and going going top gun? You look like you could have been the top gun pilot. What happened I love that you say that Man I. Come in addition to photographic. Ask by the way I, did go in and I talked to a recruiter on more than one occasion. At the particular time I was going through I know now that I got what turned out to be a bad advice. I was told that I was too tall for fighters and I know now that that was not true I'm about six one. That's you know. So while I had sat in a t thirty eight felt a little cramped got a couple of buddies who do this professionally that are bigger guys than I did just find so. At the time I think they were looking for cargo pilots looking back on it sure the colleen and done that. But you know with my art career that had started to take off a bit and one thing leads to another I realized. I. Couldn't do both, and so I've done a lot of graphic design work in support of the military as well. So done doesn't work as a civilian contractor that way. So that's that's kind of how it ended up. You know at a God had different plans can I tell you but it's definitely the the road not taken for me.
Ice, Ice, Maybe? The History Of Keeping Cool
"It's May eighteen o one, an Vanna Cuba John and Frederick Tudor the teenage sons of a wealthy lawyer in Boston or lying in the shade on their deck trying to find relief from the Heat John Shifts in his chair and MOANS. This is not making me feel any better in fact I feel worse. Nineteen years old John has a bone illness that's attacking me making him an invalid. His father had suggested that his younger brother Frederick accompanied him to a warm climate or John could convalesce relocating to somewhere warm was a common prescription for all kinds of ailments frederick advocated for Vanna thinking they might be able to get in on selling coffee or sugar but the heat and humidity are unlike anything they've felt before John's health is worse than ever. Frederick props himself up and takes a drink fruit juice from the glass next to him. I can't stand that all the drinks are warm here, but I wouldn't do a piece of ice from Rockwood. The tutors own a farm outside Boston called Rockwood that has a pond nearly every winter the pond freezes solid and they harvest the ice storing it in an ice house to preserve it through the summer. It's a common custom among well off new Englanders and allows them to enjoy cold drinks and ice cream even when it's hot outside Oh, don't even talk about ice it's too painful to think about it if we can't have it Frederick sits up. You, think we could sell ice here. I don't know maybe. Frederick is nothing if not full of ideas, John used to love plotting like this with him, but his illness has worn away at its enthusiasm for the future Frederick continues talking. We could ship it from home magin. What a luxury ice would be here I think about it isis free. So we just have to pay transportation costs we could make a fortune. Frederick dropped out of school at thirteen spurning plans for him to follow in his father's an older brother's footsteps to Harvard. He chose instead to apprentice in a store hoping to make a name for himself as an entrepreneur. He's now seventeen and in the four years since he started, he's made little progress. He spends most of his time hanging around Rockwood dreaming up schemes. John is skeptical of this latest idea. It would melt on the journey. You'd have nothing to sell by the time we got here I bet that's a solvable problem. John can't focus on that right now he's in too much pain feels to poor. He doesn't like the idea of returning to a Vanna even if it would make him rich, it's only may I can't bear to know how hot it's going to be in July or August we need to get out of here. You're right. It'll be warm enough by now. that. Boston can't do you harm. Let's go home and get you some ice. Not, much later, the two brothers were on a ship bound back to the United States. But John's health continued to deteriorate. January eighteen, O two, you passed away. But the idea Frederick hatched during their time together in Vanna lived on. Eighteen Oh, five Frederick had convinced his older brother William and his cousin. In on the proposition, the other two would sail ahead and find buyers and a place to store the ice. When it arrived Frederick would get to work arranging the shipment from. Boston. Their. Plan was to promote their product as a luxury good to the rich French colonials but selling ice was going to be harder than Frederick. Matching. Ice Come try this exotic northern delicacy I from Boston. It's march eighteen o six in the bustling market Saint Pierre Martinique, and Frederick is desperately trying to sell the ice off his boat. When he arrived in Pierre Three days before you learn that the only buyers, William and James had secured were prominent people who had been promised free box vice not to mention they hadn't found anywhere to store, and now he's stuck with a boat full of melting cargo. He's been reduced hawking an expensive luxury, the marketplace where common people by common goods. This was not plan. Thrusts the flyer toward a man walking through the market and caused him in French i-it's direct from Boston three days. Only the man pushes the flyer away ice. What am I supposed to do with that? Enjoy it in a cold drink. It's refine refreshment. You can even make ice-cream cold drinks. Why would I want that? Besides doesn't Melt if you wrap it in a blanket, it will protect it from the sun on the way home slow the melting it's all on the fire. He tries again the hand the man has pamphlet but demand waves it away doesn't matter. I, have nowhere to store it anyway you walks away shaking his head and muttering about what a fool Frederick Hitz. Frederick size and frustration. He had projected that he could sell ten thousand dollars ice on this voyage so far he sold fifty. A man approaches him. Are you the owner of the boat with the ice in it Frederick? Perks up I am. Can. I interest you in a block? I'm selling it for sixteen cents a pound it's the highest quality ice. Sixteen cents, it's much luxury as stake. If you say so anyway, no, I don't want any ice I just figured you'd be heading back to Boston soon, there can't be much of that ice left right I'm looking for a ship to take a load of sugar projects. Face falls taking this load of sugar back to Boston, is not a bad way to mitigate some of his losses but he's still disappointed. Yes I i. think we can come to an arrangement. Fantastic. Ultimately Frederick lost four thousand dollars on its first attempt to sell ice for those dollars was about four times what an average worker made in a year, but he didn't give. Over the next six years, he made progress in storing the ice both on the ship packed in. SAWDUST and building ice houses with better and better insulation to store it while he sold, it is marketing skills. We're getting better to you pitched cafes on making ice cream and offer chill drinks for a higher price. But despite the progress he was still failing to turn a profit. Meanwhile, Frederic's father lost most of the family fortune in a real estate deal without the. Family money to cover his losses Frederick couldn't pay his debts and in eighteen twelve, he was thrown into a debtor's jail
The Nineteenth Amendment Turns 100
"On this centennial of the nineteenth amendment. Celebrate the persistence of the suffragettes and also recognize that the generations long fight was marred by racism, classism and anti-semitism. In this episode of Can we talk will explore the role of African American and Jewish women in fighting for women's right to vote and the lessons we can learn from the history. Judith Rosenbaum talked with three historians and she's here now to share those interviews with us. Hi, Judith Honey. So who are we going to hear from? I? I, will hear from Ellen de Boys. She's professor emeritus at Ucla, and she's been researching and writing about the suffrage movement since the early nineteen seventies her newest book is suffrage women's long battle for the vote. And true to the title of her book, She talks a lot about how drawn out this fight was and the incredible tenacity of the women who fought for the right to vote I take a long time that it took the stubbornness and consistency of the leaders who refused to give up to use the quote that was used against Elizabeth Warren. Nevertheless they persisted. Several generations lived and died without winning the vote and still did not give up. So I would say democracy is frequently if not always imperilled must be regularly defended or it will be lost. Alas I would say our constitutional order which we think of as being like the sun in the morning in the moon at night may not be eternal and we must act for. And finally, that in our activism, you really have to take the long view and not be discouraged because we're GONNA lose a lot like, Allen I too have found both wisdom and warnings in the suffrage movement. After the two thousand sixteen election I turned to history since as a historian that's what I tend to do and I was really drawn to the stories of the suffragettes. They gave me some perspective and reminded me to take the long view. I was worried about the next four years while these people who worked tirelessly for decades and many of them died before seeing the fruits of their labor. I asked Ellen how they sustain the Movement for so long she reminded me that while women were fighting for the right to vote, they made plenty of other gains along the way. So we have education, we have professions women are. Their lawyers their writers artists. So much so that by the time selfridge calms, it's almost like. To put it in a good way. It's like the icing on the cake to put it in a bad way. It's so overdue of women are a quarter of the labor force hold visions of the American economy couldn't exist that working women. So let's leftist politics and the question is why keep women out of politics? The other thing I would say is it's important to remember that along the way there are suffrage achievements of the most important of which are that many of the states west of the Mississippi are granting women are women are winning their activism. Right to vote, they have full voting rights. They are voting for president, a women of Colorado vote for president in every election starting in eighteen nineties. I the time that this effort to change. Suffrage state-by-state slightly crosses the Mississippi and arrives at victory in most powerful state in the union. York in nineteen seventeen over four million women, vote. So they already have the vote. These are important victories but Ellen, and I also talked about the failures of the suffrage movement especially, the racism that emerged in the fight over the Fifteenth Amendment the Fifteenth Amendment granted African American men the right to vote in eighteen seventy right prior to that suffer and abolitionist worked closely together and rallied around the call for universal suffrage that is voting rights for all. But in the lead up to the Fifteenth Amendment when it became clear that the Republican Party would only support suffrage for black men the movement split. Some were willing to accept the compromise voting rights for African. American men but not for women and some were not and this created a really painful rift. That's when the famous. Between abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass, and suffrage leaders, Susan B., Anthony and Elizabeth cady stanton was shattered. Yes. Stanton and Anthony News that the opportunity an amendment wouldn't come around again for a long time. They were enraged that after decades of activism both against slavery and four women's rights, women were being told to wait and they and other white Selfridge's felt it was unfair that quote unquote on educated black men would get the vote before educated white women. Here's what Ellen says about Stanton's public response. Stanton's particularly. Speaks over a period of a couple months really drawing on a lot of racist rhetoric and it's very painful. She was in her sort of core elitist. And that had a racist element to it, but it also had anti immigrant element to it too. She thought as she used to say women like herself shouldn't have to wait to get the vote until the daughter of. Blacks in butchers she said got vote.

A tour of the recently completed Bellevue Sound Transit tunnel, Seattle

Here Here Here is is is Chris Chris Chris Eldon, Eldon, Eldon, who who who got got got this this this tour. tour. tour. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, I I I gotto gotto gotto get get get a a a chance chance chance to to to get get get inside inside inside the the the new new new light light light rail rail rail tunnel tunnel tunnel yesterday yesterday because because they they have have actually actually finished finished the the primary primary construction construction of of it. it. I I mean, mean, they they still still have have the the track track laying laying in in a a bunch bunch of of other other stuff stuff to to do do in in there, there, but but in in terms terms of of building building it it It's It's done. done. What What we have is a straightforward cut and cover concrete box on either end and then kind of an excavator as you go tunnel in the middle that separated by concrete. You've got the eastbound in the westbound side there. Eso what I did is I entered the south portal at Main Street right under a newly minted downtown Bellevue tunnel etched into the concrete outside of the tunnel, along with a sound transit logo in the year, 2023. Which is when service is set to begin. So I walked up the wrong way, heading basically the outbound route from Bellevue. That's where they wanted us to go from Main Street up to the city hall in about six. That's where it comes out and where it eventually goes over. I four or five there. The tunnel about a half mile long. Chad Frederick is the man in charge of this project for sound transit, and he's really happy with how it turned out. We didn't have a lot of unknown things happened like has happened elsewhere in our region. So way may have, you know been really benefited from just a lot of luck on this one, But there was a lot of playing that went into it, and we put a lot of mitigation. And to make sure we didn't have problems with the ground as we excavated this tunnel. Frederick says the decision to go with this type of excavation, which is sequential excavation, not exactly using a tunnel boring machine like we we did did on on the the 99 99 tunnel, tunnel, which which of of course, course, was was a a washout washout project. project. Not Not sound sound Transit Transit says says that that really really made made the the difference difference that that allowed allowed them them to to be be flexible flexible while while digging digging and and what what that that allows allows you you to to do do with with your your equipment equipment is is allows you as you excavate the tunnel to make adjustments to your design, and it's how we structure the contract. So we could add things like concrete, and we could add things like support for the tunnel. Secondary support While we're in there, we can deal with water. In fact, they actually had to deal with a pipe. Remember last time we had when we came with a tunnel? Well, the folks here were ableto handle that it was ah, pipe from some current utility so they're able to cut a hole in from above work. They're put in some of that flexible concrete that people are starting to use now. Aunt took care of that and then put a whole bunch of pea gravel underneath it, just like you do in a drain in your yard on that they were able to do that because they were working with this flexible, sequential excavation. Now, as I said, the track is being put down right now. It's about halfway through, Frederick says. says. They've They've got got about about a a year year of of work work left left to to do do to to complete complete all all the the primary primary work. work. And And then then it's it's time time to to come come in in and and put put in in the the rest rest of of the the stuff. stuff.

And testing and that goes on for quite a while in order to ensure public safety, so that should get us to the opening in. 2023 took the tour
Out of Chicago IN-DEPTH!
"Able to the back to another episode of this week in photo. I. Am your host Frederik van Johnson today. I'm sitting down with my friend and fellow Chicagoan Mr Chris Smith Chris and I. Talk about the latest out of Chicago Conference and how that win is pivot virtual all that stuff, and then how how he's planning to move forward in the future amidst this whole sort of sea change in the conference space. Chris. Math. Welcome to the show man how you doing. I'm great. Thank you Frederick great to be here. Thank you very much. Is Good to have you on man I'm excited to chat with you for a lot of reasons, some of which will become clear during this conversation but Yeah, that's a cliffhanger. So. Say to chat with you so. For the folks that may not have heard of out of Chicago the conference, what is out of Chicago give us the quick. Elevator Pitch Origin Story of that conference. Sure. So out of Chicago originally was my blog like I think has been like eleven or twelve years now but eventually, we started doing conferences in Chicago. This would have been the seventh annual get together conference downtown Chicago where was this eighth year I don't know but but that was what we did for a long time and then. You know we've. Seen over the years that coming in person all the way to Chicago because people would come from around the country around the world to it that we found that it's better to go. To the destinations where people want to shoot. So we've started now our conferences are around the country we're going to MOAB and Acadia National Park this year and Death Valley next year. So all sorts of different places and really have gotten a little bit away from doing the downtown out of Chicago Conference. But this year we did it online instead and it was fabulous and basically the response we got from everybody was don't go back to how you did it before this is awesome that we can do it. In our pajamas from home, and then you know just just get to see all the general things because because originally the conference was kind of all different. Genres I mean you've been an instructor in the past and we would have portrait people Lindsay Adler, we would have people you know doing landscape we had kind of everything lots of street photography, and now instead it's like, okay, we're GonNa go to the botanic. Garden. And we're just GONNA do flower and garden photography or we're going to like I said, Acadia National Park and when we're doing. Landscapes in creative nature photography. So so that's kind of how we've changed. But yeah, everything's totally different for everyone now right. So yeah. So everything's really changed the last couple of months. Yeah, and it's sort of it's a I. think that change was coming anyway you and I've had offline conversations sort about the state of the of the photo conference in Education Online Education Industry and how that's converging and The old school conferences are the attendance was going to getting lower and lower, and now after this latest adventure with co vid Can't conferences are getting getting canceled and moving online much like yours did yours was able to pivot a lot easier than some of those bigger conferences in my from my external opinion. And you correct me if I'm wrong largely because you'd already built sort of this next generation conference that wasn't, Hey, come check out these massive array of boats that that people spend gazillions of dollars on. Downstairs go to the education. You're kind of flip that on its head. Can you talk about that a little bit sure. So I mean when we decided to run our first photography conference, we were running it and I had never been to a photography conference before I'm like, I don't know what would you do it a photography conference well, you'd go out and shoot. You'd get to hang out. With the you know all these people that you follow online, it's like a really great networking opportunity and yeah, we'll teach them classes too but it was really different especially like a set like eight years ago most places like you come you watch one lecture then stay in watch another lecturer then watch more and go home or whatever, and then go to the trade show or whatever. So What we built was really based around shooting, and so we did a lot of the street photography and the downtown architecture photography in Chicago but. But by switching it that way, it made it a whole lot easier to go virtual. Well, that's kind of ironic because we're doing the shooting but it we didn't have this huge big infrastructure behind. We're just a very small company. I have a few people to help me run it and they're awesome by the way and. Is. A great team that I have and and we were able to it was unbelievable when this all hit and we didn't cancel another conference. We weren't planning on doing this normal out of Chicago conference. We were going to do something that was just architecture. which we weren't able to do of course but. But instead. We said. We've got all these instructors. We had seventy instructors at the thing I said I've got a list of. All these people we could email them immediately, we can ask, Hey, do you WanNa do this while in the best part of it was that they were all stuck at home and so they're like, yeah, I got nothing better to do. So all these years. Yeah. All were like excited about it and I mean it was really it was really meant as something that we wanted to do. But it was also a benefit foot benefit for our instructors who had to cancel all of their workshops I mean, that's I mean that's their livelihood is going around the world teaching, and so we did this instead to help you know cover some of those costs for them that they that they're

"Man Okay. So we've got all this massive gun control legislation which I'm assuming. That this is going to veto once it hits his desk, roll it into something else and he doesn't see it. I mean. Does anybody else you positive outcome here other than I'll just say it an open civil war. Mean I feel like I feel like patience like like those are the Sierra on the on the on the conference. Are being, backed into a corner. Yeah we're basically damned if we do. We're damned if we don't any anybody want to comment on that. No Matt Aspect. Mark Yeah. Well, the thing is like you hope it doesn't cover some this ridiculous. Of course. By, by thing is I would I guess probably is right now I don't know. Civil. War who against who? In other words, how would how would you distinguish I'll be okay Tepa. Got It the OH black lives matter. Got It. But. How do you distinguish? You gotta be. That's a great question. That's the real. That's a real problem is that we're facing a A faceless boogeyman to keep us all in our homes and isolated from one another. We've got blatant constitutional no violations from New York California including the first second third amendments. Fourth amendment. I mean and they're just they're not apologetic about it. They're just in your face to. Has. Closed Down Churches and locked Rock Jewish people out of their own parts. What's his name from says. Yeah. Is violating blatantly violating the first. Amendment people they can't sing in. Church. Are you kidding me. I mean, I'm not a religious separation of church and state. Well and second of all I mean, how does anybody look at that and not go holy shit let the lawsuits commence. Honestly So, now here's the thing I. WanNa Make It. I WanNa make it very clear for the audience and even those in the group I am not advocating for an open civil war where we start shooting. Okay. I would also like to say here only for myself but I believe that that I do not believe in the Black Lives Organization the Black Lives Matter Organization. I believe in the message black lives matter just as much as every other life and we should all be equal before the law we should be overseas equal treatment especially before the law. But. I'm not going to back a group that is Marxist and comes out and basically says it if you don't give us what we want, we're GONNA burn the system that the ground. I mean all here. Again, I mean if you have said organization that is in fact, baking a threat whether they considered idol. They considered valid. It is still a threat to. The life. Well, exactly how how do we not take that? How do we not take that based on the the instances of the last month? Says we says, we all watched the the horrific murder of a of a citizen by by discussing human being police officer. How do we? How do we not take that as anything other than a threat of actual violence based on recent history? Therein. Lies The question that I would poses that to go along with remarks you know who who exactly is going to do is A. Government. It's a radical leaders. Of States counties, cities, whatever. Or is it going to be people for people? We have. What did you just leave knowing? When you just gotTa love the irony that the Minnesota governor had the balls to ask the white. House for for bailout money after they let their city burn. I, mean, I understand there are citizens that were affected by that. But you know my argument would be well I'll tell you what once you spend the money that you say from you know. From dissolving your police. Believe. Yeah what you spend that money go ahead. Save yourself though you know the. Four hundred million dollars spent annually on your police force. Etc.. And They're not gonNA, pass it out. There's a blank check to the people because well, you know we don't get our tax money that way. Exactly. HAVE YOUR IS A. Stalemate along the lines of. City Minneapolis Saint Paul's which Is Looking for a five hundred dollar bill out the government's GONNA help. They're going to have to get that money somewhere. Well exactly and the question. Phoenix afraid now, but to answer your question or respond to your statement. I believe you said they're not gonNA raise taxes through the roof to do it. Of course, they will. Of course they will in turn. Bring. I. That's. That's a real trick. Isn't is when the IRS gets involved or whatever State Department revenue they have comes and starts locking people up the people sheepishly combine. and. The guy will probably get reelected. Let's be honest. Well you will probably see. You'll probably see something for the cities that were affected by riots and everything put into like a another stimulus bill passed by the house. Like they have added that money there you go to a legal and yeah. And everything else that I wouldn't put it past the House to sit there and add a piece in there that every city that was affected by these riots or has hardships now. Get X. amount of. Millions of dollars as part of this. Bill to. Help, stimulate the economy and the people that actually are affected by all this. That, it should be helping they'll put their. Claws into it and put. Extra things that won't matter, and then it'll sit there and argue back and forth between the House, and the Senate for God knows how long Because they won't budge on wasn't it? Well one thing you have to love about the strategy employed by the Democrats they're gonNA. They're gonNA try to stick it in something that make the president look bad if he vetoes it. Oh. Yeah. It'll be. It'll be some sort of. Bill and he'll have to it, and then they'll scream how he doesn't care about children. Exactly among the media will be all over it. Media will be all over at bashing him. Oh. Yeah. Yeah. The president doesn't care about the future. There for the last four years anyway. Well Yeah they've they've. It's funny. I. Yeah I was GONNA say I. Johnson and Nixon for sure. But you know twenty I hear people talking about Oh. Trump won't accept the results of the twenty twenty election loses you guys still haven't accepted the fact that you're get forty. Or the fact that impeachment failed yeah. Yeah the. Everything else. Rono. Everything else that you've thrown at them hasn't stuck. Exactly this is. This is reality you know this is not theory. All this stuff is happened. You know. I saw something today and I don't remember where it was talking about the reason that you know that. They want to sit there and blame trump for not being ready for this pandemic and everything was because the other half of the fence was sitting there. So busy trying to get him out for the last four years that he couldn't take time to focus. On being prepared for anything like that. The funny part is, is I I'm trying. I'm trying to I'm I don't know about you guys, but I'm tired of hearing how Trump getting the blame for a hundred and thirty thousand body bags. Here this is this is the thing we need to do things. We need to change the story number one it should be only a hundred, thirty, thousand, five bags why? If if anybody recalls I do specifically PURDIS MR TRUMP DONALD TRUMP put a travel ban in effect once we had ten positive cases in this country, the left assailed him for weeks for doing it. Okay. Nancy. Pelosi went to Chinatown encourage people not to wear masks Blah Blah. Xenophobic Racist Blah Blah Blah, pick your s that's yacht called, and now all of a sudden they WANNA blame him for one hundred, thirty, thousand body bags may explain something if he hadn't done what he did when he did, there'd be a million three bodybags. Okay end of discussion this has nothing to do with mass. This is all a political fucking game and and I'm tired of hearing about it. Except from you guys I love your new guys. DOTS. I. Think. Let's just put that on record right now. Yeah you're paid to talk matter of fact, we don't pay you at all. Yes. I think we have a contract we'll get. something. About our bucks and it'll happen advil or something like that. I. Think it was under someone nine. I was a corner of starbucks eight was a quarter of an advil and half starbucks get it straight monthly and you're no. Damage. Send Me. Oreo. Wait a minute. I want kids count. You want to renegotiate. All of your agent moved to Seattle. Yeah exactly somebody please his comments to that brick wall over there. Oh Yeah. Yeah. All right I feel like I've rented enough. Is there anything you gentlemen WANNA cover that I missed? How `bout? Redskins finally caving. By quest over we're going we're going for football. Then we're GONNA touch the Third Rail Ladies and gentlemen he just licked and grabbed it go right ahead phoenix. I did read an article that. There are some and I'm not saying a whole bowl loan. I'm not saying that YOU KNOW ENTIRE PATIENT O. Or and it's hard tribal right that there are in fact, some of the indigenous votes, native Americans. That want keep it because it actually gives them a sense of ownership relevant. We've along on this we have this. We can follow this because that is you know a depiction of our people. What's the Redskins fans great. I have no problem with that if there. was somebody like football but hey, you know I, see it representation in my people here. Thank you. There are well, we don't get me wrong that no, all fuck you and take it other. Cash kind of it's actually kind of funny that you mentioned that being that I'm also for those of us this for those of you just tuning in and getting no us as we get to know you I, am a football nut job I have been since my early days Yes. I was GONNA. Say I think there's actually incriminating proof out there wasn't much of a about football I gotta tell you. My love for the game has often outweighed all of this You know all the polit political bullshit that's going on in the game for quite some time. Get into Kapernick, that's a whole other rent for me that lasts about forty five minutes and maybe we'll do an episode just on that Now, there was always my understanding in watching anything about the Washington redskins and and the history of them that the that the team was supposedly named for one of their assistant coaches who was native American and it was if anybody. I played football I I. I. I know that Phoenix not sure if you did mark You know everybody everybody on the football field to talk shit and especially to your friends okay and Just because you have some sort of negative pejorative is a nickname, doesn't mean that people hate you Okay. So The, the the legend was and I've actually since found out found out, different resin was at the team was named for in honor of one of their beloved assistant coaches. Evidently that's not the case. Racist over racist overtones aside I? Mean we can dissect anything want. Come up with all kinds of. The point being is, why don't we just name? The region Caucasians and everybody'll be happy. Okay I mean. Seriously also living in living in Florida I gotTa tell you the university or she state has a deal to to use the seminole name from the from the seminal nation. They paid them royalties every year, which is why you don't hear this here the Indigenous People screaming about Florida state. Okay. So You know I I don't I don't want to say they haven't been relevant for twenty years. Hey easy. I. Agree I agree too I mean my head. One is, Emma water but. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute mark. Are You All I I. Take over the gators day. Well me too because. No. Fan. You know what you know University of Miami and the Florida. GATOR gator. Yeah. So It's just block. Gives you wondering we all love each other teams until we play each other so that that being said. Does anybody have any idea about the outrage regarding redskins? Honestly. I mean I might just you know that stupid that I don't see the problem with the name it's the name of sports team. Okay. I mean we'RE GONNA change the Cleveland Indians. Are we gonNA change you know aerobics Today. But that's again that's a whole other. That's a whole other thing. But how many? Are they are all the sports teams just to be to be called the daisies and you know we're good to go. Or how about the banana flavor wouldn't? Well, this is like football gets get. Exactly. Yeah. Very wrapped up about injuries and things like that. Like five put flags on. Let's play flag football. But that's really the other thing I mean. You can argue that these guys are being paid wages that are equivalent to see to. Well, okay. hazard pay I mean there's they're making millions and millions of dollars. No offense I, what what what what come? Okay. These these guys mostly have guaranteed contracts. So, you break your leg. You're out of the game you're still getting paid and you should have gotten a degree so you should be able to join the workforce afterwards. Well. Puffing along the line that you know you're getting my mom bought list during my day. Is. Lump everything together all of one. We have you know events that have taken place because of. What took place. In A now it's moved to now we're going to start tearing down statues of anybody that. Could would did whatever. But now okay. Well, we need to keep that ball rolling. So we need this Norfolk Russell. Hey. Let's NFL take. Let's go up for baseball teams. Blackhawks. I love the fact that the blackhawks till they told those guys to stuff it. They're like, no, we're not change Noel. I mean yeah, and also also the the pretty big assumption there is that these people that are tearing down statues have any clue who they are I mean want to remove a statue wondering. I it's like I'll take the consequences of not taking US history for eight hundred Alex. Basically. Look, we get to wipe out four. Daily double. All right. So we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA. PULL DOWN WE'RE. GonNa pull out Lincoln and we're GONNA pull down the statue of an abolitionist. Yeah. Let's do that. Oh Yeah. Well, they're not even educated. They're pulling down you know. They're pulling down. Statues of people that fought four slavery. To to abolish slavery, they're pulling down. I mean I saw they ruined the Frederick Douglass. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah you mean the guy that advised Lincoln on how to actually take slavery down Gee I can't imagine why you hear him down. Clearly again, that's That's World Super Eight Hundred Alex. Exactly exactly no no, it's not world history. It's common core history. That's that's right. And? There is no wrong answer to one plus one. Knew exactly. All right boys I. think that's going to wrap it up for. I. Think that's going to wrap it up this particular episode everybody that joined us. Thank you very much.

Thomas Paine one of our founders and framers, and regardless of how you see this man and the values that he possessed in that day that this was written this was written about seven months after the excuse me five months after the declaration of independence. So this is a this is a passage from December twenty, third, seventeen, seventy, six many of you have heard the the the line of this but I'm to go a little bit deeper into it, and hopefully this'll give the show some sort of context and and we hope we can earn your support as as time goes on. So this is from December twenty, third seventeen, seventy, six when the When the Revolutionary War was still going on and it says says as follows. These are the Times that try men's souls. Summer soldier in the Sun signed gatriways will in this crisis shrink from the service of their country. But he that stands by it now deserves the love and the thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, there's not easily conquered. Yet, we have this consolation with us at the heart of the conflict, the more glorious triumphs. What we obtained too cheap. We assume too lightly. It is dearness only that gives every thing. It's value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price on its goods. And it would be strange indeed if so celestial and article as freedom. Should not be highly rated. So those are the kind of the words that I could keep in mind as we go through this in every man here every person associated with this show would definitely be on the flag to make sure that the stretch stay read. So we're GONNA open up tonight and we're going to kind of open up the insanity that we've been seeing around our country regarding corona virus covid nineteen. Now everybody fever mind that none of us are medical professionals and our virologist by any stretch of the imagination where relating experiences and questions nothing that we say should be taken as any sort of diagnostic approach or any sort of Expert opinion. That said yours truly your host here Paul Spartan well, actually come at this from a perspective of being Osha certified in matters of respirators and and breathing protection. the rest of US come at this from from our own particular viewpoints and speculations. So let's just get started off So boys, we got we have. Governors California and Texas walking. Act Actual reopenings and we've got quote unquote more and indecisive confirmations, Cova, spreading but for but amazingly somehow in New York, they're reporting any new deaths or anybody WANNA start with an opinion on that. Honestly. You know I mean there's been some conversation prior to. Between myself and the other members. That's. Something is pulling the strings somewhere. Other than CDC, a hospital staff, surgeon, general things of that nature. Quite honestly, you know whatever it was whatever stream you Asian that recently came out that. Took a Italy Area. Jersey Pennsylvania. Great. Has stated sure. But why is it only California Texas? That more back that we know of your again to the states in the continental United States. Voting populace in those states. So my question now. WHO formed strings? Think. That's the overarching point here is that you know in in my experience not to get too nerdy and go too far down the rabbit hole but the same government that's telling us you know to be afraid and take particular actions like wearing cloth masks. Are the same ones that are telling us that the cloth masks don't work. I can tell you from from Osha Training and ocean certification that airborne pathogens particularly viruses. Are listed in the sub micron rage. Now that sounds that sounds really really you know interesting or maybe even boring but something that has to be realized is that when something is a sub micron particle. It passes right through the we've of a mask. Require its own moisture source. Now. Obviously state standard state standards vary but in the train I've received anything in the sub micron range requires a A. A SELF CONTAINED OXYGEN SOURCE With the use of a mask in that in that particular bio suit I mean if you WanNa, take a look and you think you're safe by wearing a cloth mask look at whatever rally just wears in a lab. When he's working with this type of contagion, it isn't a cloth masks. He wears a moon suit with a separate oxygen supply I mean there seems to be my perception is that the same people that are that are trying to Promote the panic are the ones trying to peddle a secure and make trillions and any thoughts on John? I think they're actually. No I. Think There's definitely you know financial motivation behind. This whether it's big whether it's by hospitals by a parent companies own hospitals. I mean. There's definitely something I think that financially pushes everything I mean between them getting you know a nice. paycheck at for each person, they list with Kobe or each person that unfortunately passes. listed. With Kovin. You, know they get a Giant financial. Yes if you will. Of money which I think pushes ally of these. Claims of more cases rising I mean like we. Previously is if you talk about the fact that of you know there's people around that work in the profession that there are things have been going around that they've sent. You know unused test the places. And they've come back positive when they haven't been used. But who who? Who who is the guy over in Africa, that tested a tested a fruit and a goat. And they both came back. Positive. Does anybody remember that news But you already your point but more to your point I believe the last figure I heard to. Last year I heard from the federal government was somewhere in the area of fifty to eighty five thousand dollars total for the treatment, and if the the particular person passes, the patient passes they get more. Does anybody have any information to dispute that because I think that was the last count that I heard. Be last information that I have. At, least. It's nineteen thousand dollars for a diagnosed case. Thirty eight thousand dollars if they are required hospital say and it goes up exponentially require respirator ICU care. They stay longer than hot. You're in you're out you're gone. So that being said. We all know that it'll supposedly. This bill. Gates himself and his research company. Or the ones that. Found viruses no did all the. Problems. I'm looking for here research. But. My question is if they did all the research, why did they come up with as well or have they? That's a question I posed to you folks. Well, I know they re you know they actually waiting to get ten thousand dollars plus from insurance companies and the federal government per dose mean. There's an argument to be made there. I mean, the guy is not a doctor nor is he of Arale just he just wants to make a make a killing on the here. Now that by the way is not an argument for any sort of socialized medicine. It's an absolute. It's an absolute disgusting power-hungry move at the cost of well forget about just American lives. What about globally, what have what is a million people in the ground now lifted discovered related At least one point three. If I remember correctly I could be wrong. Well, I got the second portion. Really a big to ask now is Bill Gates can't keep a bug out of his own computers what you're GONNA do with the world. Exactly number one key couldn't build a computer didn't crash three times a day for no reason. So why would we trust him with with people's lives? You know I mean he would. There was a there was a tit for tat went back and forth on social media several several years ago when he was still a once he was the kingpin of Microsoft. And he had mentioned something like You know if the auto industry had made many advances in the computer industry over the last twenty years, we'd all be driving cars that got a thousand miles to the gallon and went from zero to one hundred and two seconds to which I believe. It was the CEO at the time of Ford replied. Well. Yeah. But then the cars would crash twice a day for no reason. So. I mean you. Good Cryptic. I was GonNa say, well, then you you look at Osso. When you're talking about these numbers, go into hospitals. How many hospitals or possibly owned by the same parent company that owns the farms that the big farms that are gonna sit there and. Produce this vaccine all the sudden. Or? Not to say that they don't already have it and are just. Still waiting. I mean I know there's always testing and they have to get FDA approval and God knows what else but I mean, what's to say? that. They're not. You know getting twice the paychecks. On. Both things. Oh. Yeah. There's there's no doubt they're doubling down does absolutely no doubt doubling down your that said the other the other things that I've noticed here I don't know if everybody's been keeping up like I have. There's a Lotta unconstitutional shift happening. Okay. And I mean. Just heard I. Heard I. Heard Mark Heard Mark Giggling that that's fine because. The little that they'll get into that in a little bit but also just I wanna take a moment mark You serve this country with honor and distinction for several years in that in the military and I got to thank you for that Phoenix. You did as well and I got to say thank you for that. You protected my right to become a fat video playing hotdog eating copy guzzling douchebag that you see before you now and some of US servicemen appreciate that and Thank you. Appreciate. Bill. Hey they already did. They're called the IRS and believe me they're up my don't shit. I don't know where they I don't know where I ended maybe. It's not. So we've got measured we've got measures being proposed in in in multiple stages. Here is all the way from you know putting additional taxes on firearms to ammunition and then requiring a federal license. To purchase either. we've got the state of California. Who is you know? Well, let's just be honest they're doing what California does. It essentially eliminated their own their own Anti discrimination laws I don't know how that happened Where the hell does anybody see an end game here other than complete and total? Marxist. Shithole. That's where these lefties and I'm not GONNA say Liberals. Anymore. He's people are leftist-marxist pigs and by the way if any of you listening fuck off, don't ever come back. None of us here at. Fourth Yeah. This year at the Midnight Patriots give a flying fuck what you We don't have time to answer your e mails and believe me you're better off just turning off because if you heard that your heads probably. And I don't WanNa hear about it. Okay. You be somewhere else. All right. Man Okay. So we've got all this massive gun control legislation which I'm assuming. That this is going to veto once it hits his desk, roll it into something else and he doesn't see it. I mean. Does anybody else you positive outcome here other than I'll just say it an open civil war. Mean I feel like I feel like patience like like those are the Sierra on the on the on the conference. Are being, backed into a corner. Yeah we're basically damned if we do. We're damned if we don't any anybody want to comment on that. No Matt Aspect. Mark Yeah. Well, the thing is like you hope it doesn't cover some this ridiculous. Of course. By, by thing is I would I guess probably is right now I don't know. Civil. War who against who? In other words, how would how would you distinguish I'll be okay Tepa. Got It the OH black lives matter. Got It. But. How do you distinguish? You gotta be. That's a great question. That's the real. That's a real problem is that we're facing a A faceless boogeyman to keep us all in our homes and isolated from one another. We've got blatant constitutional no violations from New York California including the first second third amendments. Fourth amendment. I mean and they're just they're not apologetic about it. They're just in your face to. Has. Closed Down Churches and locked Rock Jewish people out of their own parts. What's his name from says. Yeah. Is violating blatantly violating the first. Amendment people they can't sing in. Church. Are you kidding me. I mean, I'm not a religious separation of church and state. Well and second of all I mean, how does anybody look at that and not go holy shit let the lawsuits commence. Honestly So, now here's the thing I. WanNa Make It. I WanNa make it very clear for the audience and even those in the group I am not advocating for an open civil war where we start shooting. Okay. I would also like to say here only for myself but I believe that that I do not believe in the Black Lives Organization the Black Lives Matter Organization. I believe in the message black lives matter just as much as every other life and we should all be equal before the law we should be overseas equal treatment especially before the law. But. I'm not going to back a group that is Marxist and comes out and basically says it if you don't give us what we want, we're GONNA burn the system that the ground. I mean all here. Again, I mean if you have said organization that is in fact, baking a threat whether they considered idol. They considered valid. It is still a threat to. The life. Well, exactly how how do we not take that? How do we not take that based on the the instances of the last month? Says we says, we all watched the the horrific murder of a of a citizen by by discussing human being police officer. How do we? How do we not take that as anything other than a threat of actual violence based on recent history? Therein. Lies The question that I would poses that to go along with remarks you know who who exactly is going to do is A. Government. It's a radical leaders. Of States counties, cities, whatever. Or is it going to be people for people? We have. What did you just leave knowing? When you just gotTa love the irony that the Minnesota governor had the balls to ask the white. House for for bailout money after they let their city burn. I, mean, I understand there are citizens that were affected by that. But you know my argument would be well I'll tell you what once you spend the money that you say from you know. From dissolving your police. Believe. Yeah what you spend that money go ahead. Save yourself though you know the. Four hundred million dollars spent annually on your police force. Etc.. And They're not gonNA, pass it out. There's a blank check to the people because well, you know we don't get our tax money that way. Exactly. HAVE YOUR IS A. Stalemate along the lines of. City Minneapolis Saint Paul's which Is Looking for a five hundred dollar bill out the government's GONNA help. They're going to have to get that money somewhere. Well exactly and the question. Phoenix afraid now, but to answer your question or respond to your statement. I believe you said they're not gonNA raise taxes through the roof to do it. Of course, they will. Of course they will in turn. Bring. I. That's. That's a real trick. Isn't is when the IRS gets involved or whatever State Department revenue they have comes and starts locking people up the people sheepishly combine. and. The guy will probably get reelected. Let's be honest. Well you will probably see. You'll probably see something for the cities that were affected by riots and everything put into like a another stimulus bill passed by the house. Like they have added that money there you go to a legal and yeah. And everything else that I wouldn't put it past the House to sit there and add a piece in there that every city that was affected by these riots or has hardships now. Get X. amount of. Millions of dollars as part of this. Bill to. Help, stimulate the economy and the people that actually are affected by all this. That, it should be helping they'll put their. Claws into it and put. Extra things that won't matter, and then it'll sit there and argue back and forth between the House, and the Senate for God knows how long Because they won't budge on wasn't it? Well one thing you have to love about the strategy employed by the Democrats they're gonNA. They're gonNA try to stick it in something that make the president look bad if he vetoes it. Oh. Yeah. It'll be. It'll be some sort of. Bill and he'll have to it, and then they'll scream how he doesn't care about children. Exactly among the media will be all over it. Media will be all over at bashing him. Oh. Yeah. Yeah. The president doesn't care about the future. There for the last four years anyway. Well Yeah they've they've. It's funny. I. Yeah I was GONNA say I. Johnson and Nixon for sure. But you know twenty I hear people talking about Oh. Trump won't accept the results of the twenty twenty election loses you guys still haven't accepted the fact that you're get forty. Or the fact that impeachment failed yeah. Yeah the. Everything else. Rono. Everything else that you've thrown at them hasn't stuck. Exactly this is. This is reality you know this is not theory. All this stuff is happened. You know. I saw something today and I don't remember where it was talking about the reason that you know that. They want to sit there and blame trump for not being ready for this pandemic and everything was because the other half of the fence was sitting there. So busy trying to get him out for the last four years that he couldn't take time to focus. On being prepared for anything like that. The funny part is, is I I'm trying. I'm trying to I'm I don't know about you guys, but I'm tired of hearing how Trump getting the blame for a hundred and thirty thousand body bags. Here this is this is the thing we need to do things. We need to change the story number one it should be only a hundred, thirty, thousand, five bags why? If if anybody recalls I do specifically PURDIS MR TRUMP DONALD TRUMP put a travel ban in effect once we had ten positive cases in this country, the left assailed him for weeks for doing it. Okay. Nancy. Pelosi went to Chinatown encourage people not to wear masks Blah Blah. Xenophobic Racist Blah Blah Blah, pick your s that's yacht called, and now all of a sudden they WANNA blame him for one hundred, thirty, thousand body bags may explain something if he hadn't done what he did when he did, there'd be a million three bodybags. Okay end of discussion this has nothing to do with mass. This is all a political fucking game and and I'm tired of hearing about it. Except from you guys I love your new guys. DOTS. I. Think. Let's just put that on record right now. Yeah you're paid to talk matter of fact, we don't pay you at all. Yes. I think we have a contract we'll get. something. About our bucks and it'll happen advil or something like that. I. Think it was under someone nine. I was a corner of starbucks eight was a quarter of an advil and half starbucks get it straight monthly and you're no. Damage. Send Me. Oreo. Wait a minute. I want kids count. You want to renegotiate. All of your agent moved to Seattle. Yeah exactly somebody please his comments to that brick wall over there. Oh Yeah. Yeah. All right I feel like I've rented enough. Is there anything you gentlemen WANNA cover that I missed? How `bout? Redskins finally caving. By quest over we're going we're going for football. Then we're GONNA touch the Third Rail Ladies and gentlemen he just licked and grabbed it go right ahead phoenix. I did read an article that. There are some and I'm not saying a whole bowl loan. I'm not saying that YOU KNOW ENTIRE PATIENT O. Or and it's hard tribal right that there are in fact, some of the indigenous votes, native Americans. That want keep it because it actually gives them a sense of ownership relevant. We've along on this we have this. We can follow this because that is you know a depiction of our people. What's the Redskins fans great. I have no problem with that if there. was somebody like football but hey, you know I, see it representation in my people here. Thank you. There are well, we don't get me wrong that no, all fuck you and take it other. Cash kind of it's actually kind of funny that you mentioned that being that I'm also for those of us this for those of you just tuning in and getting no us as we get to know you I, am a football nut job I have been since my early days Yes. I was GONNA. Say I think there's actually incriminating proof out there wasn't much of a about football I gotta tell you. My love for the game has often outweighed all of this You know all the polit political bullshit that's going on in the game for quite some time. Get into Kapernick, that's a whole other rent for me that lasts about forty five minutes and maybe we'll do an episode just on that Now, there was always my understanding in watching anything about the Washington redskins and and the history of them that the that the team was supposedly named for one of their assistant coaches who was native American and it was if anybody. I played football I I. I. I know that Phoenix not sure if you did mark You know everybody everybody on the football field to talk shit and especially to your friends okay and Just because you have some sort of negative pejorative is a nickname, doesn't mean that people hate you Okay. So The, the the legend was and I've actually since found out found out, different resin was at the team was named for in honor of one of their beloved assistant coaches. Evidently that's not the case. Racist over racist overtones aside I? Mean we can dissect anything want. Come up with all kinds of. The point being is, why don't we just name? The region Caucasians and everybody'll be happy. Okay I mean. Seriously also living in living in Florida I gotTa tell you the university or she state has a deal to to use the seminole name from the from the seminal nation. They paid them royalties every year, which is why you don't hear this here the Indigenous People screaming about Florida state. Okay. So You know I I don't I don't want to say they haven't been relevant for twenty years. Hey easy. I. Agree I agree too I mean my head. One is, Emma water but. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute mark. Are You All I I. Take over the gators day. Well me too because. No. Fan. You know what you know University of Miami and the Florida. GATOR gator. Yeah. So It's just block. Gives you wondering we all love each other teams until we play each other so that that being said. Does anybody have any idea about the outrage regarding redskins? Honestly. I mean I might just you know that stupid that I don't see the problem with the name it's the name of sports team. Okay. I mean we'RE GONNA change the Cleveland Indians. Are we gonNA change you know aerobics Today. But that's again that's a whole other. That's a whole other thing. But how many? Are they are all the sports teams just to be to be called the daisies and you know we're good to go. Or how about the banana flavor wouldn't? Well, this is like football gets get. Exactly. Yeah. Very wrapped up about injuries and things like that. Like five put flags on. Let's play flag football. But that's really the other thing I mean. You can argue that these guys are being paid wages that are equivalent to see to. Well, okay. hazard pay I mean there's they're making millions and millions of dollars. No offense I, what what what what come? Okay. These these guys mostly have guaranteed contracts. So, you break your leg. You're out of the game you're still getting paid and you should have gotten a degree so you should be able to join the workforce afterwards. Well. Puffing along the line that you know you're getting my mom bought list during my day. Is. Lump everything together all of one. We have you know events that have taken place because of. What took place. In A now it's moved to now we're going to start tearing down statues of anybody that. Could would did whatever. But now okay. Well, we need to keep that ball rolling. So we need this Norfolk Russell. Hey. Let's NFL take. Let's go up for baseball teams. Blackhawks. I love the fact that the blackhawks till they told those guys to stuff it. They're like, no, we're not change Noel. I mean yeah, and also also the the pretty big assumption there is that these people that are tearing down statues have any clue who they are I mean want to remove a statue wondering. I it's like I'll take the consequences of not taking US history for eight hundred Alex. Basically. Look, we get to wipe out four. Daily double. All right. So we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA. PULL DOWN WE'RE. GonNa pull out Lincoln and we're GONNA pull down the statue of an abolitionist. Yeah. Let's do that. Oh Yeah. Well, they're not even educated. They're pulling down you know. They're pulling down. Statues of people that fought four slavery. To to abolish slavery, they're pulling down. I mean I saw they ruined the Frederick Douglass. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah you mean the guy that advised Lincoln on how to actually take slavery down Gee I can't imagine why you hear him down. Clearly again, that's That's World Super Eight Hundred Alex. Exactly exactly no no, it's not world history. It's common core history. That's that's right. And? There is no wrong answer to one plus one. Knew exactly. All right boys I. think that's going to wrap it up for. I. Think that's going to wrap it up this particular episode everybody that joined us. Thank you very much. I appreciate a hope you've You give him a little insight insight. I should say are insanity sure would appreciate your support. So if that support button go at Mash, it down any level would be appreciated We're GONNA have some promos and some gear available for you guys here real soon, and For joining us again I'm supporting. Joined by mark and Phoenix and cryptic, and we are the midnight patriots I guys. Each. Put.
"frederick" Discussed on Giants of History
"So. Let's pause here for a moment to again. Take all this in. Can You imagine the helplessness Frederick Douglass must have felt at that moment. I mean absolutely no way out of any of it. He had fainted hit been beaten as a result of his fainting. He had walked seven miles to his master's house in this bloody condition. Only to be told to go back or else he'd now get whipped again. I mean. I am floored that this was someone's reality. I mean there was absolutely nowhere to turn for shelter from the Damn Storm. So Douglas then made his way back to covey's farm arriving early the next morning, thinking the whole while about the beating that he was going to take from covey once he arrived. and Lo and behold Douglas said that he had barely made it over Covey's fence line before covey was running out of his house with the whip coming straight for him. And Douglas here courageously ran into the Cornfield and he hid from Covey. As of Corn Rows, never answering Covey's demands to show himself until covey finally gave up trying figuring that Douglas would have to emerge at some point. Which of course Douglas eventually did? But something weird happened after that. Covey. Left him alone. And? It wasn't like that in cross paths, either they did. Covey even asked Douglas a day or so later to help drive the pigs on the farm to a nearby lot which Douglas did for him. And all the while Covey still showed no signs of hostility towards Douglas. Till one day. It was a few days after Douglas Return to the farm that he was in the horse stable. And remember up until this point covey had shown no further hostility towards him. Douglas was in the loft on the second floor of the horse stable, throwing bales of hay down below. When, he was done. He was coming down the ladder. When all of a sudden covey burst into the stable with a long rope. He caught Douglas on the ladder and went right to work hurriedly trying to tie Douglas's feet together. Douglas suddenly realized what was happening and tried to jump from the ladder, but his feet were caught, and he fell into the hey below. And at that point, Covey stood over him. And Douglas knew just what was about to happen. And here is where it all turned for Douglas and a half to let him say what happened next with his own words quote. Mr Covey seem to now think that he had me and could do what he pleased. But, at this moment, from whence came the spirit I don't know, but.
"frederick" Discussed on Queer as Fact
"And Frederick castaway on the seventeen, seventeen eighty-six. What was he born twelve, so live to seventy s okay. Is Pretty Good, Rod. was to be buried at Suzy beside eleven of his dogs. His successor, his nephew Frederick William the second had him buried with previous members of the PRUSSIAN royal family. His body was used during World War. Two because the fees it would be bombed and he was eventually in the ninety s I believe Ranta beside his dogs as he had always wanted. That is good and people leave potatoes on his grave because he's credited with increasing potatoes professional. These photos nights starring that says Frederick the Great. It's got like the flowers and the just like miscellaneous. Hold him cutoff. The potato yes. Tony! Little picture came out recently key potato. King, yeah so if I passed away ninety six during his final illness, he was attended by a doctor. Coal Johann George Zimmerman. Had in mind Frederick throughout his life. He was very moved I. Think moved to tears when he met Frederick effort, because like a big idol of his, and he published a book about Frederick after Frederick's death, and in that bulky nights that everyone including Frederick close friends. Well, the opinion that he had loved as it is pretended, socrates loved also by he's so the as it is pretend that the gives you an idea. Zimmerman was not on board with this idea that Frederick had being gay, or apparently, also not on board with the idea relationship between socrates and also bodies, which is yet another classical queen reference to add to this website. As good into bed beside socrates socrates was. Haven't that's true? But I feel like these a lot of these classical references. Don't go very in depth shaw. Perception Yeah so I. Goes Onto, argue that Frederick what's heterosexual bought that he had contracted gonorrhea from a sex work at during his youth, which had led to an operation, not long opt his marriage, which left his genitals to quite and just a little bit mutilated all right, and left Frederick running, convinced that he had been castrated, and could no longer have sex. Dillon argues that Frederick thus feigned the loss of interest in his wife, and for the rest of his life, pretended to have an act of sex life with men in order to continue to appear like virile masculine man, although he could no longer sleep with women. Competent have sex with women. If. He's still saying that it's faked. Why don't. why Y so I mean I guess the reason for that is that would be an expectation that you would have. Like fried and police, with never had any kids and I guess if he was feigning sleeping with his wife, who will be like? Why isn't pregnant? Whereas if everyone knew he wasn't interested in his like to be clear, I think Zimmerman's. Nonsense but I do understand the logic that he's necessarily right. That's right, said pretend that you had a bunch of like. Liaisons with like low loic loss. Women like that other. That makes the wife Yeah, yeah and like you could just as easily fainting mention his wife and relationships was like female sex workers, and why? Why Fan relationships with men, so yeah, Devon's claims are obviously nonsense. The doctor hit Fredericks- body for burial reported. His genitals appeared totally healthy. End this claimed operation had never occurred, so I must likely claims just come. Come, from hydrophobia, an unwillingness to believe that his idol was gay, but you did mention earlier that Voltaire mentioned something about this well, didn't he? Did? Yeah, that is true I don't know if those two things are connected on multiple people said the doctor read Frederick's body for Baron. Also all the people who are enrolled in washing the money. I think that was three of them will confirm the gentle same. So I don't know if Voltaire also happened to make the same claim or what the situation is there? So I guess Zimmerman was aware of Adam picked up on it as a convenient thing to us yet to justify the perception of Frederick, you want to spread. Like sort of the idea of a man who sleeping with men, having some kind of. Something physically wrong with genitals or like their bodies in general, isn't that yeah uncommon and might have been a convenient cultural association. That's true. Yeah, that's very true. I'm has writing was published before farther death so like that quite I went from Voltaire was around in public before Zimmerman right this, okay, that's interesting so actually somebody I was gonNA. Ask Alia. Was Women, talking about the content of these letters, until the how in that society, we had people getting burned to death valley, but also like fairly open expressions some this correspondence with voltaire was. So. It's not correspondents with Voltaire published. That quite i. read about him storming handkerchiefs to choose his favorite to sleep with. That wasn't a letter that was just baltasmrs, knowing that okay right, he decided to publish this because he was annoyed. Work in what format publishing dislike pamphlets was very normal at the time like he'd just published a pamphlet with your political beliefs or pamphlet with some cartoons or pamphlet poetry, or whatever pamphlets smearing a political. Oh, yeah or Political very common and I think this one came out in an anonymous pamphlet from memory that was later attributed attributed to Volta Yeah. So as we've kind of just talked about during Vick's life, and also in the decades following his his attraction to men, was quite openly known known talked about it was kind of just an accepted fact about him and Ali, biography written off his death by his. Contemporary Anton Frederick Busch. Says he had begun early about distasteful women. Because of this, he lost March, sensual pleasure, but regained it through the company of men, so that's an example of how that conversation was immediately after Frederick, Steph entering his life Muslim. Scholar Bodey action has some interesting things to say about. Saudi and masculinity in the eighteenth century, and why it was possible for Frederick to be kind of recognized as this great general, and this really strong rule of Prussia, and generally advised by his subjects, but at the same time, the nine to be homosexual, and why those things didn't contradict each other, and he argues that Prussian Masculinity, and therefore the image of Frederick Strong Rula is. Is constructed to a much broader range of traits and behaviors than just sexuality and Frederick Fulfil Masculine ideas of military on and doing your duty, and all those kinds of things that were much more important to profit culture than who he might have been sleeping with. He also goes on tonight. That Frederick William refers to Frederick's hobbies. Things like music and French dressing down to whatever. He's intellectual pursuits like literature and Philosophy as being Feminine Frederick William's attitudes should not be taken as the norm for the time, so these intellectual and optimistic very normal for aristocratic men around here at this time, and they weren't necessarily things that would have marched Frederick out as being feminine or as being not able to be strong Rouleau so Ashton's argument, and you kind of I think brought this up before like. Why could Frederick Sleep with men and have this be fine? Even though it was a legal, he's kind of at Wacko Frederick Sleep with men and still be accepted as ruler of the. The country he's argument is basically the sexuality was a relatively small factor in how someone's identity was understood in Prussia at that time, and all the actions, especially military actions were much more important and talked have Frederick a lot of wall as amas quite aggressive in how we approach as well as for example invasion of Salesian and that was actually wasn't that big of a deal I found type of show with Ashton's argument is correct or not, because that would require a lot more research into the culture of pressure and the construction.

"Often quite negative, the he describes it in his writings as a vice which would destroy mankind if it would general assorted outrage against nature, conversely, however, he is much more accepting about when he's writing to Frederick and so. He Compares Frederick to Julius Caesar and this is written about the same time as quite read you and he writes I.

You can't and bought. See is believed to have been the of Nicomedes in his use, so it's not a classical allusion to a male relationship, and what he's saying is like I. Love Frederick, but he's with a woman, or whether he's with a man. Kam Yes. We do see this contradiction. In Malta that he has a lot of gay friends, he's writing. He's absolutely fine with his iron. Lettuce can be quiet like flirtatious or like. We've seen how he writes about Frederick where he compares going to meet Frederick Literally to getting married, but at the same time he has these writings that quiet, anti gay, and he's this falling out with Frederick. He writes about Frederick's sexuality. Would say negatively, but it can be seen as being an attack on Frederick that he starts writing publicly about Frederick. Sexuality I WanNa read one quote from his writings about that way talks about Frederick's court. And he says when His Majesty is dressed in booted, he summons two or three favorites. Whoever's throwing handkerchief? Since Ben's a quarter of an hour in tete-a-tete, things cannot be taken the hallway. Because when he was a print, his love affairs punished so briefly by his father that he suffered irreparable damage, so we can no. No longer play an active role and has to make do with the of now. I just want to not talk about that comment about father. I just wanted to include that, so you knew that it was explicit. We talking about a homosexual relationship there, but the way he talks about it what he's talking about Frederick summoning a whole lot of favorites, and then he throws a handkerchief at one to mark whichever one he's going to go and sleep with I would not say that's a positive portrayal of famous sexuality. and. This sort of rising is a lot of the explicit comments. We have about kind of homosexuality. Frederick's Court. I definitely want to therefore rioted often. Say Frederick quote wasn't homosexual. Slant spread by Voltaire, but I think we do have to keep that in mind, and there may be some exaggeration, yeah. says. I assume fredericks not just gathering attractive young man, and then throw. It was a handkerchief, and then they go into the next room and have sex I. Don't have read biographies and to the credit of historians, not modern biographies, one biography are willing to accept Frederick's sexuality, but all the biographies with definitely used this as a way to dismiss writers sexuality, and say well. Obviously he had this fight with and therefore wanted to spread this slander about him. Time Molson with Algarotti. Many of the men in Frederick's lives, which I've mentioned many of which I haven't I've found that scholars writing about Frederick kind of skirt around the possibility of Frederick and Voltaire, actually being in a relationship, so blending for example kind of lays out. And pull courts on that lashes. But doesn't naturally then interrogate, and what was the relationship between them and in a few scores? I read I found. That was the attitude. Which is really? Because we it, the narrative feels so much like they were writing to each other and slowly building up romantic tension, and then they met they try the relationship, and it didn't work out, and then they broke it off. Yeah, like united that anything to that narrative to make that a narrative about two men who are in love. Yeah, I don't really have a good explanation for this, but my suspicion is that for example when you're Algarotti Okada. These are not famous men except for the fact that they had relationships with Frederick, so it's very to. To Go, yeah, Francesco Algarotti if he was gay well, who's Francesco doesn't affect anything to know if he's gay on whereas if someone says Voltaire was gay, we have all these writings Bible. Tear including sombat sexuality, but also more generally. He's just very big influence on Western philosophy, and suddenly if you start saying Voltaire was gay, then you have to put that Lens. All these other pieces of information and knowledge we have about Voltaire and I suspect that a scholar writing a biography of Frederick. The great is not willing to get involved in that. That's my theory. I don't know if that's the reason on. Yeah, because it does feel weird that they wouldn't either conclusively prove what. Consoles yet. They wouldn't make any ethnic. Affirm or refuse yeah, yeah, or at least say he is the possibility. He is the monuments for and against anything in. Obviously that people told you this is just surprised. Why Out? He was Kinda step back from by a lot of the people I read Sir I was GonNa tell you all my dog stories before wrapped up Frederick's life, we've told most of the dog stories, but I will tell you one more dog story, and then we'll talk a bit about kind of half.

Private quits at a military camp decided to go out riding from the camp and be should go out riding with him, so she would sit on the saddle in front of him. So, he that writing with beach, and they spot a group of Hungarian dragoons, close by Hungarian saw the enemy of this time, so he's dragoons and has to hide under a bridge to be hidden from the dragoons. But as I mentioned be, she's a very loud dog and he's very scared that Bichon. Give them away and he says to be. We must be silent. My lady or we will be did and in this one instance in her life be was silent. Pass by, and they were safe, and Frederick attend to. The cabinet declared that beach was a war hero.

He did a lot of like entirely Prussia was suffering a fabulous like economically mentioned like intensive just people dying in war a lot because of that, but like X. Donnelly Russia was doing pretty well for itself compared to other European Palace, did Prussia expand the coolest Ryan? Yes, SALITA! SALITA is like the main obvious addition to project, and like I mentioned it added like sixty percents by population, but he did gain various territories as well doing vein, it was pretty successful, so it's father's death also meant that Frederick could be much more open about his interest in things that might be considered a feminine, and about his relationships with men, biographer, planning, who is? is where a lot of my information came from for this podcast describes the period following, Frederick, William's death as Frederick's coming out one of the things that he did when he first became king was to build himself Osama Palace and the decorations at this palace definitely attest to this being his period coming out so in the hallway there was a boss up. Charles the twelfth. Twelfth of Sweden who had relationships with women that we know of and was generally thought to be gay I. Haven't done any research on Charles Twelve. know if he was interested in men or not. Maybe he was interested in no one for things. He's Frederick thinks he's gay. The general opinion is gay, so it's a symbol of not being interested in women yeah. I lost all of that man. Yeah, definitely true in pride of place outside Frederick's library window in its own little wrought-iron pavilion was a statue of Antennas, the love of the Roman Emperor Hadrian on the grounds of the palace was a building, called the Temple of friendship, which is like one of those little. You're already locking. From friends. Just the neigh-. K. Gazebo. Actively choice to. Think, it was good. Mock me. Please tell me about the temple of friendship. Okay so I I do WanNa side of the Temple of friendship, was extensively as a tribute to his sister will Amana. WHO HAD PASTA WAY PAROLE in the fifties, but there are four pillars with h with a of classical figures on. All of his pants. Classical figures are people who are often considered to be male male couples, so I don't have time to tell you about all these classical figures in terms of what their stories aw, but you'll probably recognize the names on when we have arrestees in Pele, eighties. On we have nieces in your Alice on. We have heracles. And one we have theseus and pure. `Thus Yeah I. Don't have time to tell their stories. We'll have to take my word for is very gay. These are couples that have been recognized as couples for thousands of US and obviously that's like nuance to that conversation, but they definitely have gay connotations. Yeah I if he'd had one of these. Statues will one of these things than maybe we could have a conversation about some nuance, but I don't think we really need to win. It's four sets of statues of bust. And what was the other thing, not the statue? I'm not done on my goal. Dude he just read as much as he could find every day that he could possibly think of that just like be like I need all of. Yeah I singer at French Library Yeah. Apple of friendship. Yeah I also light, so he called it. The Temple of Friendship That's interesting to me. I feel like people get upset about being. Aware of I think that was mostly in keeping with the kind of conversations the time where there's that kind of neoclassical like interest in ancient Rome and ancient Greek Pantheon's and those kinds of things, and it's not too out of line to temple friendship like the French Revolution is not that far away. If you want to think about it that way when people assigned to rebel against life, the divine right of kings and kind of religion organized religion yeah. Yeah like there are a lot of conversations against organized religion this time, so I can as far as I'm aware not really critiqued Frederick of that I. Think the reaction to Frederick Attitudes to religion like obviously that were able to quite upset about Frederick's attitudes to religion, but I think the reaction was generally like oh good. You're willing to let everyone do what they want. Let Catholics and Protestants not kill each other. That's positive. Let's not fight over that. When I say that WanNa do what they want. I should mention that Frederick was very anti Semitic. As, a many many Christian Europeans at this time I think we can go ahead and say most yeah. I think we can go ahead. Say Most one of his big influences in life, and we'll talk about voltaire later on was the French philosopher Walter. Who is also very anti Semitic, so yeah, he's freedom of religion. Ideas and non extend that far too gay art on the same grounds as his some Palacio. Another palace bill called the new palace.

"Surrounded by attendance kind of different, probably female community, Frederick had very little interest in court, and like court etiquette likes up to people organizing parties, and all that kind of stuff that goes along with being an important international speaker, so she'd do a lot of kind of that stuff. Okay whether she was happy with that. I do not know. So in Seventeen Forty Frederick, William died and Frederick ascended to the person throwing. He bought a bunch of wars throughout his reign and I'M NOT GONNA. Talk about pretty much any of them, but I will talk about the first one so one of his past actions as king was to invade Salita, which is a province of the Holy Roman. Empire and he continued to fight wars against the holy Roman Empire and various other European powers throughout his reign, and this invasion of Salesian claiming of Salita by Prussia was kind of the. The impetus for a lot of these wars and ongoing wolf throughout his reign, so before become king in seventeen, forty Frederick had written text called Anti Machiavelli I'll which talks about how you should never fight war, except for defensive reasons among other things, attack on Talaysia was title unprompted, though is no reason to do it except that he wanted that territory, so he's ideas, but he right down, and he writes philosophy and stuff throughout his life on not reflected in his actions as king, so you mentioned earlier when he was younger. Seemed to sort of disparaging not particularly interested in more, the military yeah, was there like a market change in his behavior that wasn't. He does quite enjoy being in the army later in life, and we have letters from him where he's like in a military camp and he's riding to someone saying I'm sick of being in this camp 'cause I. Really just want to have a battle I, really just want to be out in fighting and like he's, he's very into it really, and he's seen as one of Europe's great generals. I don't know exactly when that change took place over. Anything sparked that change, but yeah. Definitely is a change in his attitude. To become more invested in the military before his father Deisel often most of the coin read from this Salesian water. That's just after his father died, but he was in the army for pretty much his whole life as soon as he was old enough to be in the army so. Yes interesting that yet. He had this sort of antipathy towards his military training and he was writing. Things against. War and then his father dies suddenly seems to become much more militaristic and multiple yeah I think that could be an aspect of it of having way from his father's influence, a nasty at that he's doing as keying off his line bat like as his own action. Robinson, he's doing because his father's making him going into the army. His father's he did for example he had a cheetah amend named sow, who was his teacher throughout his life on was still around his father died. He deliberately left him at home when he went to invite. Talaysia and said I. Don't want to be doing this onto the kind of watch of my to. To to this is something I want to be doing as my man. Sorry to some extent, it may have been slave away of stepping out. Follow show, yeah I think the vitamin. SELENA was definitely Portland's by by that. Yeah, but I don't know how much that can be said to actually be enjoying the act of like being in a battle of whatever yeah, which yeah. You just read. He seems to yeah. He was on life. Enjoy that he does. It will change cable. Do Change, and he definitely did change. It's just wild for the winter garden this year. Silk Dressing wearing flouts to then become this great general. Yeah, he's a very feels like a very fantasy story. Transformation. It's not like he's left behind those other things he was interested in like he patronized. Performing ought to law as king. He invited a lot of foreign scholars to court all kinds of things, so he still interested in all those things he was always interested in. He's just now also interested in the military. Does that mean his management is not right not in hematic economics? You were saying earlier that his father didn't want to spend money on anything except for the military. Frederick is doing less military. It sounds like he's doing more of the stuff. That is true well I mean he did gain the province of SALIDA which boosted process population by sixty percent. And contributed about half the tax income from then onwards so well, so there's. Definitely a factor, but yeah, it was at war a lot during his reign, and did struggle because of that like economically, and in terms of dislike population, as I said to the performing arts, and so forth Frederick's reign was really opposite of his father's. In every way. Except to the vet, they fought a lot of wars Frederick had been a very pious. Pious Protestant and had been very against the ideas of the enlightenment, said conversations about you know whether God exists that kind of stuff. While Frederick considered Christianity, quote, an old metaphysical fictions stock with wonders, contradictions and absurdities, and he advocated for freedom of Religion Between Protestants and Catholics, and with the publication of new ideas ideas that he disagreed with, so he was. Happy, not always happy, reasonably happy for pamphlets republished critical of him and those kinds of things he would allow that to go on which was very unusual at the time. Frederik also relaxed many of Prussia's strict laws and punishments, including those against homosexuality, but also more broadly things like he would take poverty into account in cases of theft. He cut back a lot on torture and capital punishment. He's reported by to have said I want everyone in my state. Be Able to pray to God and to make love as they see fit. Well. Frederick also made a point which is kind of in line with the ideas of the enlightenment or trading all his subjects fairly and equally and kind of seeing himself as an equal to his subjects, whose job was to serve them and run their country rather than as a person with power from God. Who is still out of them around? He would raise his hat to anyone very post in the street, which was not at all the norm for King, and was something that he was quite remembered for on quite appreciated by the population, and his successor would complain that Frederick's willingness to listen to legal complaints from peasants had given them quite an unbridled passion for litigation, Hoyer. Dot Express will these ideas about quality, and so I, in his private correspondence I do think they will beliefs that he genuinely held, but that being said he doesn't always knack them in how he acts as king at it is partly an image thing that he does do these things like let peasants bring petitions to him and so forth, and when it didn't suit him, he definitely was willing to scrap these ideas, so for example local officials recalls how he wants us to. Frederick of his taxes could be reduced because his livestock had been decimated by disease, and Frederick responded my son today. Something is wrong with my left ear I, can't he? Just left. Okay, yeah, so like mix. I was starting holiday. Yeah I don't know how I feel about Frederick Yeah. He was very popular with his subjects so I if it wasn't the Austin his payoff stunts worked if it wasn't a fast like yet, he genuinely made them feel like he recognizes equals and..

"Other inexperienced. Rama members to fill out the team. It soon became clear that many team members were completely unqualified at first. The work progressed slowly than not at all. The company was even more appalled when they discovered that the rumour members had been feeding Frederick Lens classified information about the project. He required his followers to fax him every month with updates on their lives and some of the confidential information regarding deutchebanks reorganization ended up being disclosed. They'll Goldstein denied that there was a data breach of any sort the project was quickly shut down occurrences like this weren't uncommon and Wednesdays followers gained a bad reputation for being inexperienced and unreliable the gossip snowball eventually leading to the magazine. Article in response to the expose lenses lawyers attempted to get the magazine to rescind their reporting calling it oppression of religious beliefs. The plot failed but as the smoke cleared Frederick Lens still stood tall. It seemed no amount of bad press could topple his empire but he wouldn't remain untouchable forever when we return. We learned that dramatic fate of Frederick Lens and now the conclusion of the story Frederick Lens rose rapidly to prominence in the eighties when he declared that he was a reincarnated zen master. Who could lead others to enlightenment? But the foundation of his cult was shaken to its core. When former members accused thirty-seven-year-old lens of sexual and Financial Abuse Lens was knocked down? But not out over the course of the late eighties. He rebuilt his movement. He continued to run a successful lecture circuit which he used to milk his followers out of thousands of dollars then in nineteen ninety. Five forty five year old lends published his First Book Surfing the Himalayas. A spiritual adventure. This novel was a fictionalized version of his experiences studying under Tibetan Buddhist master the book's publication was controversial. There are still reports that Lens sexually and financially abused his followers. There was such a public backlash. That Warner books. The original publisher dropped him. However the book was then picked up by Saint Martin's press which also agreed to publish a sequel Lens promoted his book with a massive ad campaign reportedly spending over one million dollars to take out full page ads in rolling stone and The New York Times consequently surfing the Himalayas was a bestseller and made lens even more famous. He was now not only a spiritual leader but also a bestselling author. He even dipped his toes into the music industry. When it became a producer for new age band called Suzanne who made thirty one albums in a thirteen year span lens used his money and platform to reform his public image. He gave impressive donations to many charities supporting the ACLU Amnesty International and the National Museum of Women in the arts but even with all this goodwill surfing the Himalayas had dredged up the sexual abuse allegations against him and created a fresh wave of anti-roma sentiment. People became wiser to the cult's activities and grew suspicious about the rash of suicides. The group had left in. Its wake him lenses. Second Book was a financial flop. But that didn't seem to bother him much. In Nineteen Ninety eight at the age of forty eight he began planning the creation of the Lens Foundation for American Buddhism. The charity would offer financial aid to other Buddhist organizations the combined Buddhist teachings with secular American values but by the late nineties. His following had greatly diminished in spite of his aggressive marketing tactics. Some of his followers noticed that he became a shell of his former self around this time he appeared thin and sick when he gave lectures and no longer had the charisma he'd wants displayed. It all came to a head in April of nineteen ninety eight one month earlier. The disheveled forty eight year old guru called his then girlfriend brynn lacey to his long island mansion. The two of them had been planning a trip to the South Pacific and she was thrilled to join him on the vacation. But it turned out that lends wanted to go on an entirely different kind of journey according to Lacey. He told her he wanted them to die by suicide together. So they could go to the off world. They both ingested a lethal amount of volume lens took one hundred fifty pills and jumped into the long island sound lacy however only took fifty and therefore survived. She attempted to dive in after. Lens to stay with him but was unsuccessful in catching up to the strong current in a daze she wandered back to his estate and fell asleep. The police found Brin Lacy unconscious and Lens mentioned the next day along with the two dogs that they had also unsuccessfully attempted overdose when Lacey gave her barely coherent testimony. The police called in divers to search for his body about ten hours later. The divers located Frederick p Lens Zen Master Rama. He drowned while wearing a full suit and a dog collar around his neck lens left behind a substantial estate worth approximately eighteen million dollars. There is a battle for who would receive it as the guru had no heirs relatives or wives to women who claim to be lenses. Common-law wives attempted to gain control over his fortune but both claims were dismissed in court. After the legal battles ended the fight for the money only grew stranger both the Lens Foundation for American Buddhism and the National Audubon Society a nonprofit that protects birds and their habitats claimed to write to the Estate Lens had apparently declared audubon would get his money if the foundation hadn't been fully established by the time of his death. Audubon also argued. That lens was a cult figure and therefore the foundation for American Buddhism was an extension of his unscrupulous practices. The court could not in good conscience award the foundation any money. In the end the Audubon society settled and the bulk of the estate ended up going to lenses foundation. The foundation is still functioning today and uses the money they were given to distribute substantial grants since two thousand three after the estate was settled. It is granted around seven million dollars to one hundred Buddhist organizations across the country. The foundation is just one facet of the legacy of Frederick p Lens though. He seemed an innocent flower. Child turned high. Rent life coach. His actions speak to a darker story. The tale of a man who took advantage of a spiritual movement and warped it to make himself rich though many of lenses controversial and abusive actions are well documented. Some who follow American Buddhism's still see him as a positive figure but if there truly is a KARMIC force. Hopefully the truth of this story will outlive the propaganda..

God is the father of us all and we are all brethren and quote, the northstar became one of the most influential anti-slavery, newsletters of the era in addition to writing about abolitionists. Frederick also used the newsletter to fight for women's rights. Frederick was a member of the western New York anti-slavery society where he met women's rights activist Elizabeth McClintock, she invited into the first woman's rights convention in July of eighteen forty eight at Seneca, falls New York shortly after the convention Frederick published a statement in the north star that said, quote in respect to political rights, we hold woman to be justly entitled to all we claim for man, we go farther and express our conviction that all political rights, which it is expedient for man to exercise is equally.

The ACS is form of abolition was to free all black slaves and send them to Africa where they would quote have a better chance at a quality. So they meant well, but their ideas for fixing slavery weren't. Always the smartest.

"Baltimore. Baltimore was Frederick's first experience with an actual city. He was shocked by what he saw though richer families in Baltimore own slaves. The city slaves seem to have a tremendous amount of freedom. This city had a different social order than the more isolated plantations. It was considered improper to be a cruel slave, owner urban slave owners didn't want people to think they were too poor to care for their slaves. And so city slaves were often, well fed and had nice clothes. Frederick arrived. At the home of Hugh Alden. His wife so FIA surprised to be welcomed with open arms in his autobiography Douglass wrote debt aside from the moral crime of owning a slave. So FIU was a kind woman shortly after his arrival in Baltimore so FIA began teaching Frederick to read. The lessons didn't last long when Hugh all realized what his wife was doing. He put a stop to it in. Hugh, all Joan words, it was quote on lawful and unsafe to teach a slave to read, and quote, he wasn't completely correct about that many states at that time had laws in place that forbade owners from teaching their slaves to read a write Maryland did not have any such laws. However, there was still a negative stigma around contributing to slave literacy, Hugh, expressed a commonly held belief that education was key in helping slaves become free citizens, which is why he didn't want Frederick learning to read a slave who could think for himself would be unruly and difficult to manage for his master to hear him say it if a slave learn to read, quote, it would forever unfit him to be a slave. He would become at once unmanageable and of no value to his master and quote Frederick over. Overheard Hugh say that and from that moment on he wanted nothing more than to learn how to read and write Frederick Douglass serve the alds for seven years during that time he secretly continued to teach himself to read and write he was beaten by both Hugh and Sophia whenever he was caught. This happened often. So FIA had adopted Hughes views on the dangers of an educated slave. She would become suspicious if Frederick was out of her sight for too long, he might be in another room with a book. The house wasn't always a safe place to continue his lessons. So Frederick learned other ways to continue his education, for example, he'd steal food from the house before I went on errands, then he'd trade the food with poor white children in new and exchange for words. In his dealing with these white children Frederick was often overcome with frustrations poor not these children would grow up and be free. He would only grow up to continue being a slave. Douglas wrote, quote, I would sometimes say to them I wished I could be as free as they would be when they got to be men you will be free as soon as you are twenty one. But I am a slave for life. Have not I as good a right to be free as you have and quote when he was twelve Frederick obtained a copy of the Columbian orator, the Colombian order was a collection of speeches that was commonly used to teach school children to read and write. It contained an essay dialogue between a master and the slave which explores a fictional conversation. Where slave pleads his case for freedom with his master in the dialogue, the master brings forward every. Common argument in favor of slavery. But the slave rebuts him and asserts that he deserves liberty as much as his master does. Eventually, the slave owner is so swayed by listening to the slaves perspective that he frees him just as his owners feared the more Frederick read the more he became discontent with his position in society. Frederick Stotts became dark. He considered killing himself. It was the only way he could see to escape his life of unjust servitude. It was around this time that Frederick became aware of the abolitionist movement. Abolitionists argued that slavery was morally evil and should be outlawed. The movement was rooted in the northern United States, which largely did not rely on slave labor..

"When Frederick was only seven years old around the same time Frederick was sent back to work on the Wye Plantation, which was run by his suspected father Colonel Anthony, the Y plantation was one of the largest oldest plantations in the United States it covered over twenty thousand acres and enslaved over two hundred people at any one time slaves were not given beds and were forced to share one threadbare blanket per family. If Colonel Anthony was Frederick's father, the older man didn't show it Douglas wrote at length about Colonel Anthony's cruelty, he took pleasure in whipping his slaves, and he would feed children through troughs as if they were animals each morning slaves woke up to the sound of drivers horn. They were expected to work nonstop if they took a break, Mr. severe the farms overseer, abused them with his cow skin whip. Until they bled. Frederick was too young to do real work in the fields. Instead, he was given simpler jobs like hurting cows and keeping the chickens out of the garden like the other slave children Frederick was given no close of his own and generally performed his duties naked Douglas claims that he was never whipped at that young age. However, he suffered during the cold nights often crawling inside an old mill bag to keep warm. One early memory that made an impression on the young Frederick came during the monthly trek to the great house. Once a month slaves would pick up rations with which to feed themselves. They would have to travel from the various plantations on the property to the central farm during one such sojourn Frederick was touched by the singing of his fellow slaves. The sorrow the longing, but more the strength. He felt in those melodies stuck with him for the rest of his life in his autobiography Douglass connected, though, songs to his first glimmering conception of the dehumanisation of slavery. He went on to say, quote, I can never get rid of that conception though songs. Still follow me to deepen my hatred of slavery and quicken my sympathies for my brethren in bonds, and quote when he was eight Frederick was again sent away this time to the service of Colonel. Anthony's son, Hugh Auld in.
