"Who you are absolutely and and might be some of the only people get excited talking about eight. But hitler by training helped clients protect assets. And then you're and then also large. this is enforcement. So if there's a dispute of some kind get involved. I am my own firm here in offense and also we have an office in new york started six years ago. Ariza's earn bursary months after practicing for at two decades in law. Doing this. Well well if anybody isn't excited about talking about ip shame on them. I'll give you a real quick overview why you should be because if you look at a chart of the composition of the standard and poor's five hundred the largest five hundred stocks on the The index they're probably twenty years ago. Most of the composition of that index was made up of. We'll call it fixed assets. Now it's more intangible assets the ip. And as i said in the opening it's the secret sauce of business. So why don't we talk a little bit. I for those who may be a little less informed help us define what intellectual property is. Because it's not just about patents right nicole and absolutely not and you're absolutely right. You're showing that really eighty percent of the businesses elliott. These days is typically in some form of intellectual property. One of the things that i often stayed talking business owners. They don't even realize they it Everybody is familiar for example is just mentioned with patents at not. Everyone has business that necessarily lends itself to patent protection. The most ethic more of i appeal that every business is the ramp that also their logos it would be the awarding assisted with business manager. Sign that they have. That could also be things like product names. Packaging design even in certain cases could be ip also of course every form of copyright that you can think of on the business context and businesses. That's the digit rates to like. The new studio at the top is a big part of their work and even coaches. They've they may have a process that they used in britain it down the way that they rip it down that copyright protected and then my personal favorite is in terms of thinking about if he is the fourth form of ip. Which sometimes. you'll talk lawyers than i'll tell you that. They're three fourths trademark area patent but really they're four and the fourth as you mentioned. Is the secret sauce. It's straight secrets. And that's what that's really misunderstood. People think it's just the coat formula or in a folks that bird about the he swear trade secrets stolen. Yeah certainly it's technical trade secrets formulas but it's also every single business. Has it right tatty to your business. What's your customers. How do you find your perfect customer. What's the best way to deliver your service at your service dates business. Everybody has trade secrets and so more that businesses become service oriented which is of course great communist that we are lie upon technology bunch of software. Lots of business methods. Those can't really protected by patents specially under recent his off. And so that's all trade secrets so when you start thinking about it at the we call our firm and ip focus firm and that's because really ip is everywhere and really needs to do something about in everything that you do in your business and get a lot of business. Turn it into that. Yeah yeah we're gonna talk about the protection as we get a little bit further into this conversation but You touched on a lot of different examples of ip rate and in my world. The intellectual property is really a part of value creation enhancement. And you could be a process. A manufacturing setting like you said the different ways of doing things the way businesses conduct themselves. Can you talk a little bit better from your perspective about that value continuum if you will in terms of if there's a hierarchy of more valuable ip assets. You know it's funny because that works together. One of the things that i talk with my clients about is that you really are looking for a web of protection similar. It certainly i if it's your core or product or service your secret sauce or your most important patented a product or method. Yes there are certainly your brand really e braley. The nike brand is hugely valuable in another itself. But if you take any single business out there smaller large just one or two things. It's it's all gonna fit together. So what money sample that. I like to use. Think about academic civil. Let's talk about for instance who that that's a great winter Pula short take about the old glass bottles that has a number of forms of attached to it could be taxable if or something unique about How the glass was together or something like that. The actual shape itself is at least two forms of it could be protected by a design pattern. That's a really important these days for example also all of the apple design happy about the design of the as got a design patent. But then you don't need to see it at a bottle to recognize it as a like. You don't use the logo to know that when you think about when i mentioned it to you presumably through them certainly not on popped in your mind because essentially it's functioning as a trademark.

Success as Servants and Stewards

"First Corinthians chapter four verses one to this is how one should regard us as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required of stewards that they be found faithful. These are two of my favorite verses in the whole book of First Corinthians the way that Paul describes himself and leaders in the church but really every follower of Christ here to fold he says we should be regarded as servants of Christ and the word there uses for. Servants is a word that would be used to describe the under rower on a boat so picture like the Lowest Galli of slaves on a boat. That's that's what the word is for servant here like just row here row. There do whatever your master. The captain ship says the do. So we're under oers. We are servants of Christ. He's the captain of our lives and we do whatever he says. We go wherever he leaves. We are servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. And the mysteries of God. There is a reference to the Gospel the Cross of Christ and we are stewards of this Gospel. So we've been entrusted with this possession and it is the most valuable possession. It's the very gospel of Jesus Christ and so we are to steward it in this world. So we're servants of Christ stewards. The mysteries of God's Tours the Gospel so with those roles that we have in our lives. So just think about that and your life my life today you and I are servants of Christ and we are stewards of the Gospel. So what is required of us as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God and I could just after four verse. Two says one thing is required of stewards. The day be found faithful. I want you to think about that word because I believe for screens chapter four one and two are giving you and me a clear definition for success in our lives. What does success in your life? You think about it. The world has all kinds of answers to that question for you success in your life and and likely you have some thoughts some ideas that come to your mind that are what the world says is successful but here. In First Corinthians chapter four verse to God is saying in his word. What success is in your life as a servant of Christ and a Steward of the Gospel? Success is you being Faithful Faithful Servant of Christ doing whatever he says a faithful steward of the Gospel making known in the world. This is success for you. This is success for me. So God we pray well first of all. We praise you for the privilege of being servants of Christ or it is the great honor of our lives that we would be servants of Jesus. We wouldn't want it any other way. We're so glad to be your servants. We know that we have an option of being slaves to sin in ourselves are slaves to Jesus and we're so thankful that you manage slaves the Jesus for their refined true freedom true joy and true life so thank you for Magna servants of Jesus Doers of the Gospel. The no only we heard it. You've entrusted to us that we believed it now. We have the religious sharing it so that others can experience internal life thank you for making us stewards of the Gospel. So God re pray to day like if today was our last day on Earth we pray that we would be found faithful servants and faithful stewards today. And help us to do whatever you call us today to obey you to walk with you. We're under rowers to tell us what to do we want to do. It helps to live like that today. And help us to be stewards. Faithful Stewards of the Gospel today. Elba's to share. It helps to garden in Your Church. Help us to promote it in the world to proclaim in the world to proclaim it. It's someone who doesn't know it got re pray that if today was our last day the Justice Day we will be found faithful servants and faithless to hurts. We pray the same if you give us tomorrow and the same if you give us the next day the next the next day until one day we stand before you and God we pray we WanNa hear on that day well done good and faithful servant faithful steward.

"Although many of my colleagues do but it's very close close to it and so in in one sense I have to say ambivalent about that on the one hand. Ah I would hope there would be a day when we would think of abortion likely today. We think slavery that it's like abominable. Why would we ever have done that? But I also realized is on the way to get there there might have to be compromises in order to get there but even to compromise on that issue on the way to a what I would consider the a full. Victory feels like a betrayal of one's principles. But what I'm hearing from you. Is that like what I'm getting from that. And this is. The point is at like at a deep ethical spiritual level abortion abortion gay quality marriage equality just in different morals fears for you like exact one is tolerable in one is not essentially right so so then this brings me back to this like the the the question that I always wonder about you. Talk about sort of loving your enemy and obviously there's so much biblical language about turning cheek and things like that. I get the abortion stuff off and I get the opposition to LGBT rights. I understand where that's coming from the the thing. The trump does that I find unbearable from a Christian perspective. Is the refugee stuff. Like when you talk about when you talk about that sort of hypothetical garbage dumping Cairo or all the places it throughout the entire world where people living in grinding poverty and misery and people are than animated by the spirit of Christian charity from all kinds of traditions Catholic pentecostal from from traditions. That are politically extremely conservative. The Mormons who then are animated because of their Christian charity because their view that Jesus says we are all born equal in the eyes of God that that commands us to go out and spread mercy in God's love and charity People that don't look like us that don't have our our backgrounds because they're all the same to God that fundamental belief which animates so many beautiful wonderful things that people across all different political spectrums of Christian belief and other religious belief Muslim Jewish Hindu etcetera that like the way the president talks about refugees. The way talks immigrants it. That's he me of all the things seems the hardest to square with like genuine Christian devotion. Yeah and I don't understand I have a good friend Matt Lawrence. He works for Evangelical Relief Organization Asian called World Relief and he's the point man on going to congregations and trying to convince them to be more receptive to immigration and actually world relief's immigration policy is so evenhanded presence. It's yes we have to protect our borders for bad people. Of course we do that. And of course we have to have a process for not only allowing people in the country but also an integrating them in the country but by Golly. Aren't we supposed to be welcoming more people than we are But he finds minds tremendous resistance among many evangi local congregations and I am also just deeply puzzled by that Even I was talking talking to a friend the other day who was explaining me Some of his views about this matter and it's really devout man who's who's actually got a tender heart and tries to do good to his family and other people in the community he just thought the wall is a really good idea. And I'm just thinking holy cow. I don't know where that comes from from well. How much how much of it is I mean? I sort of asked a question like how much of it is race. How much of it do you think is? Essentially people are scared of folks. That don't look like them and that's been cultivated in them as well. Well I'm open to that as a hypothesis I just feel like the race card is played so much and once you play it it ends conversation. I just don't find it a helpful way to go down to go down that way. It's just I just just to respond. We have been debate abate this but like I I get that as a diagnostic truth about the conversations that you're trying to have but it may also turn out to be like a descriptively accurate a little like there's a hypothesized people have. I don't know how you'd measure that. How would you know that is the case? So a person says I don't like the fact that Mexicans there's so many Mexicans in our community pretty Now that sounds racist on the surface it may it may very well be racist but it also may mean. It's a lot harder for me and my children to find work now. It's putting tremendous stress on the social networks that were a part of in the hospitals and schools and a friend of lives in southern California and they were the homeless. Most were building these tent cities in in places in Right near Nicer homes a nicer communities and these people were were creating a drug culture right next to a a an area of the city that was in fact Healthy Natural. He said some disparaging things about these. These shiftless homeless people because he feels the pressure that that's putting on his community on the other hand. I mean I'd say I mean go ahead let me say this because I you're describing are like people have those instincts and I think those are actually quite universal. To be honest. I mean I think like there's a lot of liberals who preach a lot of stuff about how tolerant they are and then like they. They don't want a homeless shelter coming next door to them and they like that is a true thing about people have all kinds of. Yeah there and say I get that because I feel that right but my ah is if there's one point of what Jesus calls us to overcome that instinct right like like. That is the message that he says like. Yes we all get that we have that visceral reaction in very many different ways and people around the world have different reactions to strangers showing up into you know like that is that is I think it's fair to say. Hey that's universal human experience different situations but it just seems to me like man if the Bible is clear. It's so clear on that. Yeah well I think this would take this conversation far adrift but Just to give you an idea of where where I think. Some of the source of that problem is is The lack of strong preaching from Evangelical pulpits on this issue. You have have more or less bought into the idea of the. The church is now existing market culture. And the way you attract and keep people in your churches is not rocking the boat right and so pastors. There's are reticent and I understand that I was a pastor in this culture they're reticent to speak out about a lot of these using these responsibilities that they think they're prisoners fresheners have because they might lose a fair number of them and their very livelihood and the churches success. Now the church is doing lots of things so it's not just a matter. He's afraid for himself alphabet. Just sure no. He's also saying if we do this and we lose a third of our members. We're not going to be able to offer the food closet anymore. We're not GONNA do this other thing and I do think there's something nefarious about the kind of neoliberal economic world. We live in in which everything the thing is transactional winners and losers. And if you say Xyz it's going to affect things economically to me. That's a topic for another discussion. But I think it has a large the fact that we live in this on the churches adopted a consumerist approach to doing church. Leads is to the lack of Passers being able to speak prophetically about what the congregation needs to be doing. Because you're right. I think. The Congress a good pastor would say I get it. I don't like the fact that our community is being inundated with so many refugees that we don't we don't have never in our schools. We don't have school supplies. Does it takes forever to get to go through the emergency room.

"Nine extremely extremely dangerous and intolerant worldview inside of a movement always. It's more complicated and variegated and I'm and in Christianity today which publication that I've I have read had You know a lot of time to the logical disputes and all kinds of things that aren't squarely political in any way shape or form like what was the kind of intellectual life world of this publication that you were the custodian of Yeah. Well it started out very much as a almost an intellectual journal in its early years with with Carl F H Henry who had had his PhD in theology from Harvard. And in fact a lot of those evangelical from the fifties and sixties made a deliberate effort due to get their PhD's from Harvard and Yale and Universities in Germany just to a prove they could keep up with Keep up with the Liberals and also be able to have conversation with the liberals well. They didn't weren't really interesting conversation. They're interested in criticizing them but criticizing them at a level. That could have some respect. So that's kind of our heritage and then that type of magazine the only way it was successful because it was underwritten by businessman j Howard Pew and he kept on bailing. CT Out of debt every year with paying the debt. I the magazine just given away to I forget how many hundreds of thousands of pastors masters and then a new publisher came in and said you know the and the board basically this. We can't sustain this so he made the magazine a little more popular. But we've always always had the dimension like you've said of what's going on in the theological currents inside evangelical them and outside is a very important part of the mix at Christianity today so at the same time. There is a growing body of scholars who are either evangelical themselves or are interested in studying being evangelical it probably I started Mary's of history and sociology. Certainly History Mark Nolan. George Marsden among others get a name for themselves salves as evangelical historians who are historians of the Evangelical Movement and they're gaining great head with the Historical Association. Because they're doing such good work. The literature on Evangelical Religion that has been produced in the areas of sociology and psychology and history has just been astounding downing. And you know we as a magazine. Just tried to keep up with reviews and with interviews with these Historians and conversations about you know what's good bad ugly about evangelical as an especially intellectual life. It's funny you just mentioned mark No who's a legendary thinker and writer on this And he wrote a book in Nineteen Ninety four called the scandal of the Evangelical on a a really fascinating work. Whatever he's kind of bringing to bear this kind of intellectual critique about a sort of lack of intellectual all institutions in the evangelical world that can kind of measure up to these other institutions and Christianity? And it seems to me. There's always been among evangelical intellectuals. Is this kind of not chip on a shoulder but a sense of you know you're talking about Catholicism which is intellectual tradition that goes back two thousand years like trying to develop within the culture. Its own kind of intellectual. Rigor actually issue. Yeah Yeah I just spoke at a conference. was a year and a half ago. That was I can't remember the exact name of the conference but it was more or less whatever happened to the The vange alkyl minded mark. Noll was there and it was like a retrospective. What's what's happened in the in the years since his book was published and on no gave one of the addresses as well and he said you know the book was taken seriously and a lot of his critiques are no longer applicable because a lot of evangelical institutions stepped up their game aim and tried to create a space for even more demanding intellectual work in the name of evangelical religion? So when marks book came out there there was a part of me that said a man and there was a part of me that said Really only in this sense. My understanding of evangelism is that it is first first and foremost a populist movement. It's never pretended that it needs to be or should be intellectual in any way it's fantastic at reaching people people at the street level and it can make heroic sacrifices to do that an anecdote I I've made up but it's it's not far from the literal truth if you go to a garbage dump in Cairo where people are actually living and then you're walking around just kind of concerned about all these people that have to live there. And then you bump into to a Christian ministry there if you open doors. You're going to find out that was either founded by Catholic nuns or evangelical slash pentecostals. I mean that's the type of thing right right. Evangelical do really well The intellectual life has never been there strongest suit So at one level I went well. Of course. They're not interested in the mind but the other part of me because I'm a person who cares about the mind thought it wouldn't hurt us to have a fair amount of us. Spend and our lives doing that. Well and this this goes back to sort of what we're talking about when we talk about evangelical which might be a good point now to talk about the sort of theological foundation here. I mean in the kind of have modern sense of America Evangelical. ISM When you say it's populist it's because it's about a personal pledge to devote your life to Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour a a personal experience of that that is born of a kind of spiritual awakening that is not the product of eight years of study not your sorts of other sort of methods by which people may become a come into a religious following. It's not a matter of You know memories of the Catechism Chism memorizing the Ten Commandments. And the Lord's prayer although some evangelical denominations along the reformed access will do that sort of thing. But you're right at the heart of evangelical religion is. It's is that it's Jesus. I don't know if you know the author am Amonte. Yeah I remember. I went to a conference where she spoke at Calvin College and she said I just love being here just love I can be with other people and be so Jesus see I thought it was a perfect description of one strong dimension of evangelize. Jesus Christ is in fact really really really important to us and I- i- contrast that somewhat like with the Roman Catholicism Thousands of course crisis central for Catholicism Bredon wigner transform to his body blood every week but but Catholics might be more known for their devotion to Mary and and then regard but for free event jonquils. It's Jesus in fact. I talked to a Catholic Bishop in Sacramento when I was a pastor there and then we were talking about. The number of evangelical is that we're becoming Catholic and he said Yeah. Here's the thing though. I just when they become Catholics. I just hope they don't give up. Jesus because we Catholics. We need Jesus. I thought that was an interesting remark for him to make. I want to talk about the sort of role that Jesus and faith. And this kind of populist approach approach takes in the kind of political world and life world of evangelical right after we take this short break. Hi Everyone Steve Kornacki here host of the podcast gassed article two inside impeachment. It is official president. Donald Trump has been impeached by the House of Representatives and faces a trial in the Senate. We've witnessed in-incredibly historic moment. So what does it mean for us for our politics and for our country will the politics of impeachment change. What can the lessons of past impeachments teach us about the future of this process? I answer these questions and more on article two inside impeachment search now wherever you're listening and subscribe. Thanks for listening. So you were talking about the sort of populism the centrality of Jesus you were talking about the kind of mercy and charity that come along with that and I have to say like obviously I think you and I probably have quite politics quite different views and I'm certainly not here to debate yours. I'm someone who who was raised in a Catholic tradition. My father was actually Jesuit seminarian. From the time he was eighteen he left fifty was he was there for seven or eight years before he left right before final vows and was raised in the Catholic church in in the Bronx in the nineteen eighties in a very kind of we might say social justice e Yeah Catholic spiritual you that was around Fordham University and around these neighborhoods in the bronx that were going through a lot of tremendous disinvestment and challenges. But the thing I will say say is it because of that that background I generally fairly warm feelings about people of faith because you know in my experience in particular from that background it was it was a lot the people doing exactly what you're talking about it with people ministering to the poor people taking very seriously the Jesus Command to welcome. The Stranger found through their their faith. Faith and their spiritual life kind of large-hearted empathy that seemed to use their their lives and their and their mission in the way that they worked. I guess it's it's sometimes it's hard for me and others. I think the square that all of that with what looks sometimes like very hard edged intolerant. Angry you kind of projections that come from large strains of of evangelical American. Yeah no there's no question about it that's kind of one of the points of my editorial royal is that it's increasingly unimaginable. Now I will say that I prepared that editorial By spending at least three in a three and a half years trying to understand it that is to say during the election and after the election of trump. I was mystified that there could be this not just that people voted for trump. Because I get the I didn't really have a choice wasn't going to vote for Hillary so it got to be trump. I get that it's the people who saw trump as in Masonic Hanoch terms and talked about him in Messianic terms and I saw things on the Internet about trump our salvation and it was just like what in the world's going going on here. What's so I did I tried to engage some people you know if someone would write the magazine in Heaven Intelligent Critique of something we said about trump I would invite right him to say can you just can we stayed in touch and you tell me what you think The magazine is we do this. That and the other thing. That would really help me. Try to understand where you're coming from and I read books by the woman's name is Her she's a sociologist at Berkeley Arly Russell Hook Shield I read. Jonathan hates Righteous mind and that really did help me become a lot more empathetic with what was going on. How marginalized Much of the heartland especially was feeling but not not just the heartland just people in general feeling alienated from American culture. Botha but certainly economically but also sociologically spiritually religiously and so my goal is editor in chief for those first three years was can we have a charitable conversation with one other left center. And Right in the Evangelical Alkyl Movement and listen to one another and try to understand where each other is coming from and remember we all worship Jesus and and actually that was when I walked walked into the office on December nineteenth. I was still debating whether I wanted to do an editorial on the impeachment because it was my last month and I didn't really want to write a controversial editorial is my editor editorial director fight. What did he think he's the? I think we should write something so I thought okay. Well we'll we'll. We'll do that and I started to write my typical Mark Galli on the one hand on the other. Let's be charitable towards one another and let's let the process work itself through and I just Something in me clicked after about two senses into my writing. And I said that's a harsher went through my head than Baloney but a similar similar word beginning with a B and just said that doesn't work anymore something. Has I think it was the impeachment hearings. Actually we've crossed a rubicon here. And I feel like have done my due jill diligence of trying to understand my brothers and sisters and now it's time to just say no we cannot go there. We cannot pretend like donald trump's this moral behavior especially his words the way he denigrates people is not merely just rough edges. A man with bad manners..

"The school prayer was outlawed and then an Article v Wade was was the deal. There was also at the same time the sexual revolution and the increasing use of drugs among a lot of people. And so there was this feeling that the cultures there's drifting and this is especially felt by the religious right and when Reagan comes up comes off as very conservative socially and culturally conservative as well politically conservative And he says to the national. I think it was a national religious. Broadcasters that I know you can't endorse me but I can endorsed doors you. It was like talk about flattery that made a difference. They just love that and so I think it's from that point on that you get increasing identity with Republican politics conservative politics and then it. It accelerates with Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson with the moral majority and all that and it's just Become more and more partisan ever since so that there was a time I think when evangelical could be said to be more or less evenly divided added between Republican and Democrat. Maybe a little more Republican than Democrat but certainly last five or six elections. You can pretty much count on the evangelical vote to go sixty five to seventy five percent for the Republican. And that's why in one sense. It didn't surprise me that polling booths closed and they interviewed evangelicals who they voted voted for eighty percent. We're voting for trump is a little higher than previous elections but it's pretty typical in terms of their interest in right Publican policy. I mean I feel duty-bound a note and we're trying to white evangelical is when we talk about that you know eighty percent data. Yes exactly so. I'm talking about White Evangelical when I talk about Evangelical Vengeance. Yes I I. I recognize appreciate that. They're Hispanic and black evangelical but it would be disingenuous for me to pretend like that's been part of my world right. I understand stand that were right. Yeah told me a little bit about the intellectual world that was Christianity today because I think one thing that happens in our culture is that political cultural movements that are outside. Our experienced get very flattened in our view. So I think people who are not evangelical or don't have evangelical their lives lives tend to think of it functionally as a political movement now essentially a kind of vanguard for a certain T- to their mind and too many of these the listeners listening to nine extremely extremely dangerous and intolerant worldview inside of a movement always. It's more complicated and variegated and I'm and in Christianity today which publication that I've I have read had You know a lot of time to the logical disputes and all kinds of things that aren't squarely political in any way shape or form like what was the kind of intellectual life world of this publication that you were the custodian of Yeah.

I the magazine just given away to I forget how many hundreds of thousands of pastors masters and then a new publisher came in and said you know the and the board basically this. We can't sustain this so he made the magazine a little more popular. But we've always always had the dimension like you've said of what's going on in the theological currents inside evangelical them and outside is a very important part of the mix at Christianity today so at the same time. There is a growing body of scholars who are either evangelical themselves or are interested in studying being evangelical it probably I started Mary's of history and sociology. Certainly History Mark Nolan. George Marsden among others get a name for themselves salves as evangelical historians who are historians of the Evangelical Movement and they're gaining great head with the Historical Association. Because they're doing such good work. The literature on Evangelical Religion that has been produced in the areas of sociology and psychology and history has just been astounding downing. And you know we as a magazine. Just tried to keep up with reviews and with interviews with these Historians and conversations about you know what's good bad ugly about evangelical as an especially intellectual life. It's funny you just mentioned mark No who's a legendary thinker and writer on this And he wrote a book in Nineteen Ninety four called the scandal of the Evangelical on a a really fascinating work. Whatever he's kind of bringing to bear this kind of intellectual critique about a sort of lack of intellectual all institutions in the evangelical world that can kind of measure up to these other institutions and Christianity? And it seems to me. There's always been among evangelical intellectuals. Is this kind of not chip on a shoulder but a sense of you know you're talking about Catholicism which is intellectual tradition that goes back two thousand years like trying to develop within the culture. Its own kind of intellectual. Rigor actually issue. Yeah Yeah I just spoke at a conference. was a year and a half ago. That was I can't remember the exact name of the conference but it was more or less whatever happened to the The vange alkyl minded mark. Noll was there and it was like a retrospective. What's what's happened in the in the years since his book was published and on no gave one of the addresses as well and he said you know the book was taken seriously and a lot of his critiques are no longer applicable because a lot of evangelical institutions stepped up their game aim and tried to create a space for even more demanding intellectual work in the name of evangelical religion? So when marks book came out there there was a part of me that said a man and there was a part of me that said Really only in this sense. My understanding of evangelism is that it is first first and foremost a populist movement. It's never pretended that it needs to be or should be intellectual in any way it's fantastic at reaching people people at the street level and it can make heroic sacrifices to do that an anecdote I I've made up but it's it's not far from the literal truth if you go to a garbage dump in Cairo where people are actually living and then you're walking around just kind of concerned about all these people that have to live there. And then you bump into to a Christian ministry there if you open doors. You're going to find out that was either founded by Catholic nuns or evangelical slash pentecostals. I mean that's the type of thing right right. Evangelical do really well The intellectual life has never been there strongest suit So at one level I went well. Of course. They're not interested in the mind but the other part of me because I'm a person who cares about the mind thought it wouldn't hurt us to have a fair amount of us. Spend and our lives doing that. Well and this this goes back to sort of what we're talking about when we talk about evangelical which might be a good point now to talk about the sort of theological foundation here. I mean in the kind of have modern sense of America Evangelical. ISM When you say it's populist it's because it's about a personal pledge to devote your life to Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour a a personal experience of that that is born of a kind of spiritual awakening that is not the product of eight years of study not your sorts of other sort of methods by which people may become a come into a religious following. It's not a matter of You know memories of the Catechism Chism memorizing the Ten Commandments. And the Lord's prayer although some evangelical denominations along the reformed access will do that sort of thing. But you're right at the heart of evangelical religion is. It's is that it's Jesus. I don't know if you know the author am Amonte. Yeah I remember. I went to a conference where she spoke at Calvin College and she said I just love being here just love I can be with other people and be so Jesus see I thought it was a perfect description of one strong dimension of evangelize. Jesus Christ is in fact really really really important to us and I- i- contrast that somewhat like with the Roman Catholicism Thousands of course crisis central for Catholicism Bredon wigner transform to his body blood every week but but Catholics might be more known for their devotion to Mary and and then regard but for free event jonquils. It's Jesus in fact. I talked to a Catholic Bishop in Sacramento when I was a pastor there and then we were talking about. The number of evangelical is that we're becoming Catholic and he said Yeah. Here's the thing though. I just when they become Catholics. I just hope they don't give up. Jesus because we Catholics. We need Jesus. I thought that was an interesting remark for him to make. I want to talk about the sort of role that Jesus and faith. And this kind of populist approach approach takes in the kind of political world and life world of evangelical right after we take this short break. Hi Everyone Steve Kornacki here host of the podcast gassed article two inside impeachment. It is official president. Donald Trump has been impeached by the House of Representatives and faces a trial in the Senate. We've witnessed in-incredibly historic moment. So what does it mean for us for our politics and for our country will the politics of impeachment change. What can the lessons of past impeachments teach us about the future of this process? I answer these questions and more on article two inside impeachment search now wherever you're listening and subscribe. Thanks for listening. So you were talking about the sort of populism the centrality of Jesus you were talking about the kind of mercy and charity that come along with that and I have to say like obviously I think you and I probably have quite politics quite different views and I'm certainly not here to debate yours. I'm someone who who was raised in a Catholic tradition. My father was actually Jesuit seminarian. From the time he was eighteen he left fifty was he was there for seven or eight years before he left right before final vows and was raised in the Catholic church in in the Bronx in the nineteen eighties in a very kind of we might say social justice e Yeah Catholic spiritual you that was around Fordham University and around these neighborhoods in the bronx that were going through a lot of tremendous disinvestment and challenges. But the thing I will say say is it because of that that background I generally fairly warm feelings about people of faith because you know in my experience in particular from that background it was it was a lot the people doing exactly what you're talking about it with people ministering to the poor people taking very seriously the Jesus Command to welcome. The Stranger found through their their faith. Faith and their spiritual life kind of large-hearted empathy that seemed to use their their lives and their and their mission in the way that they worked. I guess it's it's sometimes it's hard for me and others. I think the square that all of that with what looks sometimes like very hard edged intolerant. Angry you kind of projections that come from large strains of of evangelical American. Yeah no there's no question about it that's kind of one of the points of my editorial royal is that it's increasingly unimaginable. Now I will say that I prepared that editorial By spending at least three in a three and a half years trying to understand it that is to say during the election and after the election of trump. I was mystified that there could be this not just that people voted for trump. Because I get the I didn't really have a choice wasn't going to vote for Hillary so it got to be trump. I get that it's the people who saw trump as in Masonic Hanoch terms and talked about him in Messianic terms and I saw things on the Internet about trump our salvation and it was just like what in the world's going going on here. What's so I did I tried to engage some people you know if someone would write the magazine in Heaven Intelligent Critique of something we said about trump I would invite right him to say can you just can we stayed in touch and you tell me what you think The magazine is we do this. That and the other thing. That would really help me. Try to understand where you're coming from and I read books by the woman's name is Her she's a sociologist at Berkeley Arly Russell Hook Shield I read. Jonathan hates Righteous mind and that really did help me become a lot more empathetic with what was going on. How marginalized Much of the heartland especially was feeling but not not just the heartland just people in general feeling alienated from American culture. Botha but certainly economically but also sociologically spiritually religiously and so my goal is editor in chief for those first three years was can we have a charitable conversation with one other left center. And Right in the Evangelical Alkyl Movement and listen to one another and try to understand where each other is coming from and remember we all worship Jesus and and actually that was when I walked walked into the office on December nineteenth. I was still debating whether I wanted to do an editorial on the impeachment because it was my last month and I didn't really want to write a controversial editorial is my editor editorial director fight. What did he think he's the? I think we should write something so I thought okay. Well we'll we'll. We'll do that and I started to write my typical Mark Galli on the one hand on the other. Let's be charitable towards one another and let's let the process work itself through and I just Something in me clicked after about two senses into my writing. And I said that's a harsher went through my head than Baloney but a similar similar word beginning with a B and just said that doesn't work anymore something. Has I think it was the impeachment hearings. Actually we've crossed a rubicon here. And I feel like have done my due jill diligence of trying to understand my brothers and sisters and now it's time to just say no we cannot go there. We cannot pretend like donald trump's this moral behavior especially his words the way he denigrates.

"gallus" Discussed on Why Is This Happening? with Chris Hayes

"In the trump presidency. Told me about yourself. Where are you from Sell born and raised in California born in San Francisco raised in Silicon Valley and then Before was the Silicon Valley Cupertino and then in Santa Accrues went straight to UC Santa Cruz for my undergraduate work. Well debt and we've already reached a surprising point your biography Having having my best friend be a banana slug There you go there. You go the the infamous mascot of Santa Cruz That That that is not a place I think of producing like the next generation of Evangelical Christian leaders exactly it most people taking a lot of acid in the woods. There was that act and marijuana in the hallway. Yeah and But there was a pretty strong Christian. Pretty strong I mean group of twenty to thirty Christians who met regularly for Bible Study and prayer and It was a great place to be to be Christian. Because you weren't in a bubble and you had to figure I'm not thinking about your faith and talk about your faith in a way that that at least made some sense to your fellow students. That's fascinating so you were. You raised in a Christian household. Not Really I had a kind of classic Evangelical Conversion Experience When I was thirteen went forward in an altar call during a church service but pretty much since that time. was race in a church setting and in evangelical environment. So by the time I got to college I had already been disciple in the faith so to speak for at least five five or six years. Yeah can you tell me about your calling your your your conversion experience when you were thirteen. Yes Oh my mom had classic Evangelical Conversion Experience in the sense that she had had a desperate moment in her life and said God. If you will make this thing happen I will give my life to Christ and within the afternoon it happened so so the next time Billy Graham was on TV and he turned to the camera and said you at home want to receive crisis your savior. You can just kneel in front your TV set and that's what my mom did were you were you who Alive at that point. Yeah so I was thirteen. I guess twelve at that point so you guys had a kind of religious household before that moment not really we'd been nominee Catholics Decade or so earlier my mother had very Enthusiastic Evangelical sister and other relatives who had been witnessing to her for some years so it wasn't like it was completely out of the blue. She understood some of the vocabulary. And what what that involved but when my mom You know did something in our family. Everybody did it so we were church on Sunday morning and Sunday night and Wednesday Z.. Night prayer meetings and every week at the service at the church service Sunday morning on passer and have an alter call and I was feeling increasingly guilty not going forward and so I decided. I didn't want to celebrate Christmas without having become Christian because I and I didn't want to feel guilty anymore during the altar call so I went on December nineteenth gene nine hundred sixty five. This is something. That's characteristic of evangelicals. You kinda know when this thing happened of course so I go forward and I have a very emotional prayer with the Deacon there which I look back on now and realize it was probably partly spiritual but it was also partly about pent-up psychological anxiety going on there and when when I got to church the next week I still felt guilty during the altar but for some reason it it seemed to me that I'd I'd made a commitment meant you know from my perspective. The Lord kind of held me to it and I did what I needed to do. And even though my motives are bad and Are Mixed to say the least. It's just kind of stuck with it and it stuck with me ever. Since can I ask just to to swim upstream for a second. What did your mom ask the Lord four well she had been having Real difficulties with My older brother He was kind of a stubborn guy. And my mom was a stubborn woman mother and they would get into these big arguments and she just said Lord if you will get Michael to go into the into the air force I will. I'll give my life to Christ. And he walked in that afternoon said I've I've signed up at the air force so it's like. He was backed into a corner as they say ed silk. So you're now you're thirteen and urine. You're going to go into high school and go through adolescence in Silicon Valley in this household. That has no at this time. We're already in Santa Cruz. Because you're in Santa Cruz. which is I mean again? Just setting the scene here like Santa Cruz in one thousand nine hundred sixty six sixty seven sixty eight like that's a real groovy replace replace. Yeah that's like real right. I mean that's a real epicenter hippie culture at that moment right and I was in the small community just just ten miles south of there clap toss and it was Full of kind of middle upper middle class kids who are experimenting with drugs and you know on the on the way to school. I was offered this drug or that fairly often. I can't take any credit for saying no to that because it just simply didn't interest me it wasn't like it was a big temptation tation and I had to Marsha my willpower to resist. It was like I don't know why you. Why would you do that? I don't get it. So you're an evangelical are you an evangelical youth groups through high school. Do or you definitely. Yeah but you're going to public school but going to public school. Yeah so you've got to kind of social world. That is that are people that are Christians that have had the experience you've had than Doing Bible study and going to church correct. Yeah and youth. Group was very formative and Evangelical Church. Youth groups are extremely formative institutions. Does that help bond kids together and deepen their faith and this would be true of Church youth groups but also Para Church youth groups like young life or youth for Christ I would say evangelical churches do that as well or not better than any other religious group that just really know how to do the youth group thing so you go to college where you also have the your your essentially kind of a counter cultural figure right. I mean in the in the sense of what the predominant culture of the campus of UC Santa Cruz is. And say late. Nineteen sixties early Seventies. You have a a life world of fellow Christians that you're in so I think this is one reason I'm have not been shocked by how the culture has drifted from its Traditionally Christian roots and Christian ambiance that it's had for you know a couple of centuries now whereas people in the south in the mid mid West the heart heartland they find it just shocking. How things have drifted? But I I went to a college where things had already ready drifted off into the extreme and I was I was used to dealing with the world that wasn't friendly to my to my religious beliefs. And I we learned how to negotiate that there and it's something that the rest of the vange local moment had to start learning to negotiate a decade or two later I think so. How did you find your way to Christianity today When I was a pastor I wrote for a magazine called Leadership Journal which is a magazine for pastors which is which was owned by Christianity? Today and so I'd written short pieces done reviews and I was looking forward to the day that the editor would would ask me to do a major article if not the cover story because that was my kind of dream as a writer and he followed me one day and offered me a job so I couldn't actually take that I offer but six months later when the job was still open. My life had shifted shifted a little bit and I I had more opportunity to accept that offer and when we had that phone call the second time When I hung up the phone with him I just had this feeling being inside? That's what I that's what I needed to do next. I hadn't prayed about it hadn't talked to my wife about it. Had actually weighed the pluses and minuses of it. But I just had this really strong inner sense chance that that was. That's what I was going to be doing next. Then when I finally did in fact pray about a talked to my wife talked to friends it did seem like a good move and we and we made that move in August guest of a one thousand nine hundred nine. And where were you pastor. At the time I was a pastor in Sacramento. What did you like about being a pastor? Well a couple of things. I one of the things. That's amazing about being a pastor is the people will just start talking to you about stuff. They won't talk about with anyone else right. And even if you're on a plane and you people find out your pastor astor all of a sudden they'll just start saying I'm really having problems with my boyfriend and it's it's such a privilege that people would give you entry into their lives like that. It's it's like remarkable. It's just it's really quite wonderful and then you're there with your congregation. Had these huge events at the birth of their children at the weddings weddings at at funerals and in a small church Funerals were actually. I don't WanNa be Morbid. But there's some of the most special times in a small church's congregation because it was a very traditional carnation. The women none of the older women worked and so they they would get together and they would organize the wake after words and people would sit around for hours talking and it was quite extraordinary in terms of that type of intense small community to be a part of you move over to Christianity. The one thousand nine hundred nine and and you know there's a fascinating thing that happens. Among American Christians Evangelical Christians particularly. I know that within your world you just call Christian Christian. But I'm using evangelical for folks that are not in our world but yeah that's fine that Evangelical Christianity has kind of as a movement sort of I think from that period of time from the thirty years one thousand nine hundred Nile. There's like a national evangelical culture that develops over the course of that thirty years. I think it's fair to say right. Yeah yeah well. It was built in the fifties sixties and seventies started by Billy Graham and a lot of his friends to break away from fundamentalism it was is essentially it was a movement to say we want to retain classic Orthodox Christianity but we want to engage the world. We're living in. We don't want to be like the fundamentalists who want to withdraw off from the world. We want to engage it so there was a A number of Evangelical publishing houses and colleges and other things that were started during that period of Christianity today okay was started during that period nineteen fifty-six so this whole subculture of evangelical religion focused pretty much on the religion of it Develops it being this incredibly strong spiritual movement well then in the seventies and eighties. There became a kind of stirring that At least certainly on the religious right that we need to be more involved in the politics of our era and that was when they were these markers along the way that we're starting to disturb people. The school prayer was outlawed and then an Article v Wade was was the deal. There was also at the same time the sexual revolution and the increasing use of drugs among a lot of people. And so there was this feeling that the cultures there's drifting and this is especially felt by the religious right and when Reagan comes up comes off as very conservative socially and culturally conservative as well politically conservative And he says to the national. I think it was a national religious. Broadcasters that I know you can't endorse me but I can endorsed doors you. It was like talk about flattery that made a difference. They just love that and so I think it's from that point on that you get increasing identity with Republican politics conservative politics and then it. It accelerates with Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson with the moral majority and all that and it's just Become more and more partisan ever since so that there was a time I think when evangelical could be said to be more or less evenly divided added between Republican and Democrat. Maybe a little more Republican than Democrat but certainly last five or six elections. You can pretty much count on the evangelical vote to go sixty five to seventy five percent for the Republican. And that's why in one sense. It didn't surprise me that polling booths closed and they interviewed evangelicals who they voted voted for eighty percent. We're voting for trump is a little higher than previous elections but it's pretty typical in terms of their interest in right Publican policy. I mean I feel duty-bound a note and we're trying to white evangelical is when we talk about that you know eighty percent data. Yes exactly so. I'm talking about White Evangelical when I talk about Evangelical Vengeance. Yes I I. I recognize appreciate that. They're Hispanic and black evangelical but it would be disingenuous for me to pretend like that's been part of my world right. I understand stand that were right. Yeah told me a little bit about the intellectual world that was Christianity today because I think one thing that happens in our culture is that political cultural movements that are outside. Our experienced get very flattened in our view. So I think people who are not evangelical or don't have evangelical their lives lives tend to think of it functionally as a political movement now essentially a kind of vanguard for a certain T- to their mind and too many of these the listeners listening to.

And Barbara web went on twenty twenty and on Oprah and Kimberly was on the cover of people magazine. This was a big deal. All I remember. I read me it was huge because no one wanted to talk about it.

1 week. 3 suicides. 1 tragic connection to school massacres.

"Just the past two weeks. There have been three deaths by suicide people who in different ways survived mass shootings. Two were teenagers who lived through the massacre at Marjory stoneman Douglas high school in Florida last year. The third was the father of a six year old girl murdered at sandy hook elementary school in Connecticut in two thousand twelve sandy and Lonnie Phillips know firsthand that kind of grief their daughter was killed nearly seven years ago in a mass shooting since then they've made it their mission to help others navigate the public, and sometimes political aftermath these tragedies they travel the country hoping to build a network of survivors and offer victims and families kind of survival guide to grief preparing them for a future. Few can imagine your identity has been stripped from you by their its mother or daddy or father. Or sister, brother? I no longer have that title. I no longer have that relationship. And when it's violence like my cars was that takes a long time to recover from some people think that there's a timetable for Greece. Yeah. Yeah. The five stages of grief. Right. And you go through all five of me think. Okay. Now, I'm done. And they don't tell you know, you get to start it all again, and they're out of sequence a lot of survivors. Just don't know that especially going into it. You might find that what you have done for the last twenty years of your life or thirty years of your life has absolutely no meaning to you anymore. And that was certainly the case for us. It wasn't long after their daughter's murder that sandy Lonnie Phillips quit their jobs. They've gotten rid of most of their belongings and rented out their house. So they can travel around the country to mass shootings hoping to meet survivors and offer help. Scene of a mass shooting is not an easy place to come to can be like walking into a stranger's funeral. We don't know each other yet, but we do now but in grief strangers can quickly become family. You got a second mom here. We sold the Phillips's in Thousand Oaks, California, where twelve people were gunned down at a country music or last November. It is one of the latest stops on their herp breaking journey. Evan lost somebody close to comprehend it. Just days before they arrived here. They were in Pittsburgh, where eleven people were murdered at the tree of life synagogue is so interesting what you're doing. You're not trained, therapists. You're not counselors, and yet you're have upended your lives and reaching out in a very individual way to people at compassion. That's what it is. Not a mine, it's about compassion compassion. We get from those people too. It's not like it's a one way deal. It was in two thousand twelve that their daughter. Jessica Galli was murdered along with eleven others in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. She was twenty four and an aspiring sports reporter. Can you take me back to that? He s. The young man that was with her Brent was like a son test, and she decided that she wanted to taking to the Batman movie. And when the shooting happened. They stood up and. Never made it out. Both France arrived. He he was shot trying to save her. He went into paramedic mode immediately. Because that's what he does for living. And the phone rang who call you from inside the. And I could hear the screaming going on in the background. He said there's been a shooting. And I said are you? Okay. And he said, I think I've been shot twice. And I knew them that. Okay. Something's bad. And I said, where's Jesse? Let me said. I tried. And I said is she? Okay. And he said, I did my best I tried. And I said, oh, God Brent told me she's dead. And he said, I'm really sorry. I started screaming, and she was sliding down the wall screaming, and I grabbed her and pick her up to the couch, and she kept beyond just he's dead. It's been six years now almost seven and there's not a day that goes by that we don't still get upset and still cry. Brother's suicide and a lot of people say, you know, you're now part of group which you never wish you'd be an lifetime membership and the cost of the dues might as way way too high. Sandy is sixty eight Launay seventy five twenty one. John they've been living mostly on savings, social security and goodwill. I know you're on a deadline occasionally crashing with friends days doing they started a nonprofit organization. Call saviours empowered to offer advice in kinship in the wake of mass shootings. I get a couple of hours, but also to give families practical information like how to deal with media attention or how to get a body home for a funeral. It's Lonnie just checking in on their things that happen to the families of people who've been shot in a mass killing that do not happen to families of somebody who is died under different circumstances. Exactly. The worst part is finding out that the day or child has been killed that there are already websites that have popped up and Facebook pages that have popped up saying this is a false flag. And this didn't happen. Did you have people saying just go wasn't real? She's cry. Actor a real she wasn't there. He didn't lose it. Outer all the time. Negra song sisters dead Bobby since just because murder. Sandy, son Jordan has been harassed and threatened by a man who like many conspiracy theorists claims. There was no massacre in Aurora. Today's number mother. It's hard to imagine. But similar harassment now happens to families almost every time. There's a mass shooting Ness the worst count of harm. You can do to someone and you're devastated peren become apparent becoming more devastated. Shooting at century theaters. Up to the massacre in Aurora, sandy and Lonnie who were gun owners themselves filed a lawsuit against companies that sold gear and amunition to their daughter's killer over the internet, the judge throughout the case and ordered them to pay more than two hundred thousand dollars to cover defendants legal fees contract with them consulting to declare bankruptcy. And now consult for a gun control group to make ends meet. Right here. But they say they keep that were separate from their outreach to survivors. We don't ever bring up gun TULIO. You never bring up politics or guns advocate. We don't recruit. We don't do any of that stuff until somebody shows an interest, and we tell them, you know, you're not ready yet. The course of their new lives has followed a roadmap of American tragedies. They started in new town. Then went to Isla vista San Bernardino, Orlando loss Vegas Sutherland springs. Parkland Santa Fe, Pittsburgh and Thousand Oaks each massacre is different. But the look sandy and Lonnie see on the faces of those left behind is the same can't believe in the campaign. I want to believe it on Akot and Mitch warrants seventeen year old son nNcholas who had just turned a swimming scholarship to college was murdered with sixteen others in parkland, Florida last year, I expect the come home any day, Walter the house such a great kid Nick's younger brother, Alex who was grazed by a bullet doesn't talk much about what happened. He was in a classroom across the hall from Knicks when the shooting began their parents were nearby. Waiting for school to let out Alex called us and said mama in back of an ambulance. I was hitting the back of the head. And in my mind, I didn't really worry about nNcholas because there's three thousand five hundred that that school one child shot. What's the odds of chew of my kids being shot? And I took off to the hospital finesse admit, you can wait for nNcholas and. Yeah. They waited for twelve hours before finally being told nNcholas was dead within days, a mutual friend connected them with sandy and Lonnie Phillips. Remember that first meeting? Yeah. Oh, of course, of course, they had a houseful of people we felt a little bit like we were intruding on a very private moment, which we were. But for a good reason, I I was a little skeptical in the beginning. And I'm thinking to myself, what do they want from us? Why are they here after speak until them which to we lasted for three hours three hours, though? Yeah. And they took the time just a year, and when not here Fran reason Fien ties because you're in a place. That's just not of this normal life. Can can't imagine when you open house in the morning. You're just like why should I get up today? Why should I do that? And it's just so painful to feel this pain the whole day, and then to meet somebody who has been through this and six year layers, and they're getting out of sandy and actually see a way through potentially. Right. What are some of the things you kind of the list of things? You worn a grieving parent list is I know you don't wanna get out of bed right now. But you're gonna live through this in spite of it just know that it's going to take you a long time. That's number one. Number two, people are ripping you off right now as we're speaking there's probably a gofundme page somewhere and raising funds for the families and that money goes into their Bank account. You'll never see it. So be careful who you trust. So it's an introduction mass shooting grief one, oh, one to help them keep up the Phillips's or trying to create a net. Work of survivors who can quickly respond to mass shootings anywhere in the country. Volunteers like, Shannon, Caputo she met sandy and Lonnie in two thousand seventeen after surviving the massacre at a music festival in Las Vegas when I first met them. I asked him if I could go to parkland with them because that was after Vegas, and she was like, no, Honey, you're not ready for this yet. She's telling her story, and I'm listening to her and

How Prizes Shape Human Behavior

"Bruno fray is an economist who has spent years studying how prizes shape human behavior, he works at the university of Basel in Switzerland, along with Yana Gallus, he is co author of the book honors versus money the economics of awards getting an award makes people feel good, but Bruno says the real benefits of awards I seen long after that initial glow wears off when people are given an award in general, they are likely to work bedtime to be more engaged to have as we say. Hi, intrinsic motivation that he's they like to work, and they like to do what they do and therefore contributing really to the social good and important reason awards. Have this affect is that they are deeply social a once a handed out in settings where you are surrounded by. Peers an award can make you feel appreciated by people whose opinions you value in. This regard an award is very different than a cash bonus. Normally at people are not allowed to say how large the bonuses they receive. So it is unknown to other people at while awards are always given in a ceremony sometimes a lavish one sometimes in smaller one, but it's always with other people around and the the person or the organization giving the award specifies exactly why the personal the organization gets the award and this emphasizes the X ordinary engagement of the people receiving the awards, and that tends to raise the intrinsic motivation because it's reconized because it's appreciated one of the things that you and others have learned. That people care intensely about the prestige that awards can confer perhaps even more than money prizes. Provide glory. I want to play you a clip from the world of golf. This is the 2017 PGA championship winner. Justin Thomas terms of this week. If I it's definitely not about the money and stuff and not about being better than anybody else. I like I said earlier I just like to win an I like trophy. So I I just wanna win to to to go when not only toward championship. But anytime you can win a year long race. And and be known as a champion of an entire year to be Bill. So that's that's me is what it'd be much excited about Bruno. Do you see other examples of people who actually prefer prestige and glory to to money? Yes, thou very many instances of that just consider if you want to invite a famous person, let's say coming from the US to Europe or from Europe to the US if that person. Has a high income already a good income, then it's very difficult to get people. There is an an ice example, namely Roach, a failure one of the famous Swiss he earns about ninety three million. And I don't think that you can induce him to go anywhere to get anything. But when you offer him in a nicer ward, you have a better chance to do that. I'm wondering about another area that you discuss in the book, which is it's not just a benefit to individuals who win awards, but there are benefits to organizations as well, especially if you're an organization that doesn't necessarily have a lot of money or you don't have the leeway to pay people. A lot of money awards are really a powerful way to increase motivation. Yes, indeed. And it also creates a bond of loyalty between the giver and the recipient. You cannot accept the order by the Queen of England. And then say, she's a silly woman or. Or I don't care about awards because then people say, why did you accept it? But people do accept awards. Of course, there are cases in which awards are not accepted. But in general people accept their words. And then there is a a new bond of loyalty especial relationship to the one who gives the award and that is also important in for profit capitalist enterprises. I'm wondering if this might be one of the reasons why you have so many awards in military service, especially because it's not just that you're conferring in a recognition on people who've done important things. But building those bonds of of relationships that connections between you know, superiors and subordinates that is actually essential for a successful military. Indeed. And especially in the military sector. It's difficult to define what a good soldier a good officer. Good journal must do because you cannot fix that. In advance. And so you must rely on the person's to do the right thing. Right. And how do you put a price on bravery or loyalty or integrity? Yes. That's not not possible because it is a bravery ten million dollars or five thousand dollars, or whatever doesn't know. While if you give an order and then in the ceremony you say, oh, yes. The soldiers did something beyond his duty. Something extraordinary that that is totally sufficient to make the recipient Mary happy.

"It's the big group of twenty summit in Argentina. And President Trump is already they're given the trade war. It's a time of great turbulence for the international system, the BBC's Daniel galaxies in Buenos Aires covering the summit. I Daniel good morning. You just talked to the head of the World Trade Organization. He sees his world in crisis.

And that's the. Opposite moment that we're living with this US in China trade wars. So every leader everyone has something at stake here in this meeting and the WTO headmistress veto he suggested to you that some countries are developing kind of alternate track. A plan b if the World Trade Organization system is somehow undermined yes. Well, the problem with the World Trade Organization right now is that the US is blocking the nomination of judges, and that's pretty much the core. Business of the WTO, which is settling trade disputes between countries. And what miss told me was that the member countries are trying to find a solution that does not involve the United States. But what he says is that if there is such a plan b than any dispute settlement with the United States will be compromised because it won't be part of that body. So this big summits underway. Do you expect new deals to emerge given that President Trump's big meeting with Chinese? President Xi is tomorrow everyone scored sort of expecting what will happen to these trade wars between China and the United States, but the big meeting itself is after the g twenty so how much really can we expect from this multilateral deal before those two countries agree on what they have to say.
