Are We Living In A Dystopian World? Find Out NOW!
"Hello this is Stephanie. And this is talk tales and Trivia. The show where. I talk about pop culture trivia. Listen I love researching pop culture trivia so that you can stump your family and friends with Great Trivia on today's episode. I thought I would talk about the content the entertainment that we watch and read and listen to at home. That's right it could be a movie. A book or podcast. Well it is all double or triple the entertainment and content. And you'll understand what I'm talking about in a few minutes. Listen I love dystopia anything? And if you've been listening to this podcast you know it. Well to stop in is so popular right now and to stop anything is popular but did you know that it is a sub genre that is under the huge science fiction genre and it is very popular. Well think of all the movies and books that you've read and other entertainment that you've watched that is using the scare factor or the desperation factor that brings in misery or discomfort. Or just something that you are not comfortable with well. That is a distortion emotion. Right it brings in something that is just foreign to you. And that would also be a change to the human condition This is perfect for living environment of social unrest including social distancing and working remotely and we are certainly doing a lot of that so there are so many people much more than. Let's just say your ago that have taken to a distortion entertainment to still be in anything. It could be a book like. I said it could be a movie or it could be a podcast and that is all under the distortion genre. Now if we're gonNA have a dystopia genre we'll guess what we have to have the opposite and that is a utopian genre and there is that no. What is the difference? Well of course you know the difference. I'm going to give you a definition right now. Well what does dystopia mean and I will tell you right now? Dictionary Dot Com has a great definition. Here a society characterized by human misery as squalor oppression disease and overcrowding. That's right and now I will give you the definition for utopia or utopian. Well of course it means the exact opposite of distortion it. Means of relating to or just having to do with idealized perfection given too impractical or unrealistic schemes of such perfection. It's an idealized perfection. And that's something that we don't really see very often so we tend to go towards the dystopia N- types things well. This is perfect for living in an environment of social unrest including social distancing and working remotely that we have had to get used to in the recent past. But I want to tell you about a couple of movies that are wonderful and then you can also read the books. And sometimes and one of the instances you can also get a podcast is a really good thing as well. Well the first thing I want to talk about is the most dangerous game. Well what is that? Well I read the Schwartz story when I was probably very young in the nineteen seventies and it is a short story that came out in nineteen twenty four by Richard Connell and it is a wonderful short story Nelson for the nineteen thirty eight film adaptation. You can see the most interest game and it is so cool. Well the most dangerous game about hunt but this is a different kind of hunt and you will find it very interesting. Read the Short Story and see the movie and guess what it is. Just become a series on qube DOT com. Now qube is very interesting and I want to mention this because I just discovered it is shorter episodes but the same kind of story. They just cut out a little bit of the excess things that they didn't need and the short story or the movie but this is very interesting so on Qube it is an episodic short series thirteen episodes with Liam Hemsworth and they are really easy and Benge worthy. So do that next. I WanNa talk about a book that I read in Maimi junior high school and that is nineteen eighty-four. Well George Orwell wrote the book in Nineteen Forty nine and he can kind of see the future. It is a warning of what is to come. The story takes place in an imagined. Future the year well nineteen eighty-four when much of the world has fallen victim to perpetual war? Omnipresent government surveillance and propaganda. Well it is not a fun place to live and it is not a fun time to be alive in nineteen eighty. Four is a great book. You don't WanNa miss it? Read the book. See the movie and the concept of the book and the movie was used to record a super bowl ad in nineteen eighty four now on youtube and that will be in the show notes. It represents the control of technology and how it's taking over and the ad big brother is represented by IBM Somewhat and the takeaway from the ad is the world is going to change because of computers That did happen next. I love this and it is the center. Well the first season starring Jessica Biel was great but they have three seasons. And what is going on is why a murder was committed and keeps you guessing. Well it stars. Bill Pullman as well as the investigator in all three seasons I know it's not distortion but it's worth a watch. It's a mystery thriller psychological thriller psychological fiction and it is on net flicks three seasons. You don't WanNa miss it? It is Binge Worthy Watch the series and read the book now. Next is a funny kind of situation. I came across this and I wasn't planning on it. I was just had a little bit of free time and is the stranger. Well what is that about? The Stranger is a British mystery thriller series written by Danny Brocklehurst and based on the two Thousand Fifteen Harlem copen novel of the same title. Try to get that at Amazon. And you won't be able to the mini series premiered on net flex in January of twenty twenty just a couple months ago and it stars Richard Armey Taj. Who is best known for the Hobbit Oceans Eight and Captain America and it starts one of my favorites. And I know some people won't recognize the name Jennifer Saunders and she was an absolutely fabulous a British comedy so watch the series the stranger. It's so interesting. Okay now. We're going to go back into a DYSTOPIA and type of deal and this is really fun. Try to get all these friends and people to watch and not everybody gets it but I know that you will. It is called Black Mirror and there's five seasons it is a British distillery and science fiction and Black Mirror was inspired by the twilight zone. That's right dealing with controversial contemporary topics with less fear of censorship than other more realistic programs. It highlights topics related to humanity's relationship with technology and the stories that feature the way we live now and the scary and Weird Way. We might be living in the future.
Apple Macintosh "1984" ad - January 22, 1984
"Today it was January. Twenty second nineteen eighty four apple introduced. Its new Macintosh computer in an ad during the super bowl though the apple all too I released in nineteen seventy seven was super successful. It was being outclassed. Apple released the Lisa a personal computer. Would they graphical the user interface and mouse in early. Nineteen eighty-three but the computer was expensive at ten thousand dollars and it had other drawbacks. That made it less less than appealing. The macintosh project began in the late. Nineteen seventies at the same time the Lisa was under development apple employee Jef Raskin askin aimed to create an affordable. EASY TO USE Computer Steve Jobs. The CO founder of Apple took notice of the project. The Macintosh was envisioned. Eh less expensive than the Lisa but still powerful and accessible to the average user apple announced the Macintosh one. Twenty eight K..

Eighty four advertising agency. Shaya Day created the AD. Lee clow was the creative director. Steve Hayden was the COPYWRITER. Her and Brent. Thomas was the art director. The AD was shot in one week in cost about five hundred thousand dollars. Steve Jobs loved it but the Board Board of directors was not impressed by the commercial but apple ran with it anyway. The commercial ran once in December of nineteen eighty-three in the late night. Spot in Twin Falls Idaho and was screened before previews in movie theaters. But the Super Bowl spot was its most famous showing release. Scott Director Director of the science fiction films alien and Blade. Runner directed the commercial in the sixty second commercial.

'Quid Pro Quo': People Are Searching for 'Something' as Trump Faces Impeachment Threat
"To this special edition of the lead White House in crisis. I'm Jake Tapper and we begin today with a historic day. In Washington where norms are being eroded and facts facts trampled upon president trump today telling the American people in essence ignore all the evidence you have been presented with including his own words those of his aides when it comes to the president's clear use of his presidency to push foreign leaders to investigate his political opponent Joe Biden and his son hunter last night further evidence emerged that such an investigation was part of a quid pro quo with Ukrainian President Alinsky the President's AIDS in texts clearly eerily pushing Alinsky to publicly commit to an investigation into Burris MMA the gas firm that wants employed Hunter Biden before the president would agree to a White House visit for his Alinsky one. That's Alinsky desperately wanted. You know when this came out. It was pro quo while the was done. There's no quid pro quo. There's no quid pro quo. There is no bro well repeating the denial of a quid pro quo which is something exchanged with the expectation of receiving something in return repeating. It doesn't make it any truer especially after the first witness in the Ukraine scandal handed over stunning text message exchanges to Congress in which a top diplomat in Ukraine wrote quote as I said said on the phone I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign unquote president trump today continued to deny hi that it's inappropriate for a president to push for dirt on political opponents. He called it an obligation to look into corruption but when asked today by a reporter if he could name name one other time one other time that he pushed for an investigation into alleged door invented corruption not of a political opponent well president trump said did this would have we would have to look the president says George Orwell once throat in one thousand nine hundred quote. The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final most essential command unquote a philosophy that that is the apparent White House strategy for the scandal or as president trump wants. Just remember what you're seeing in. What you're you're reading is not what's happening. Actually it is and today the first crack in the Republican Venire Solidarity Party with President Trump Republican Senator Mitt Romney of Utah saying quote the President's brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling unquote. CNN's Kaitlan Collins is at the White House and Caitlyn. There's also now a Republican senator who is saying that he heard heard of this quid pro quo and confronted president trump about it yeah. Republican Senator Ron Johnson telling the Wall Street Journal that the US ambassador to to the European Union told him that the status of that military aid for Ukraine was tied to those investigations that the president wanted to see the country carry out now that's significant for two reasons one because that ambassador to the EU told another top US diplomat and Ukraine that there was no quid pro quo that there was no correlation in that essentially what he thought was happening was not happening. It's also significant because Ron Johnson tells the Wall Street Journal that he confronted President Trump over this who says adamantly denied that the two were linked something we saw the president do repeatedly in front of reporters today when and I speak to you a foreign leader I seek in an appropriate manner president trump's stuck with that line of defense today as he was forced to defend calling on another foreign leader to to investigate his political rival something he claims has nothing to do with the upcoming election. I don't care about five campaign. What I do care hear about corruption after suggesting China should look into Joe Biden trump denied linking it to a potential trade deal. One thing has nothing to do with the other making. I'm back claim even though he mentioned trade right before saying this Thursday China started investigation into the by trump hasn't personally asked China's president to launch an investigation he says but sources tell C. N. N. During a summer phone call that he not only promised President Xi Jinping he remained quiet on pro democracy protests in Hong Kong. He also raised Biden Elizabeth Warren which he says he doesn't remember number. was that in twenty seventeen. I don't know you'd have to tell me when one question trump didn't answer today whether he'd ask other countries to investigate someone who's not his political opponent but he did confirm he'll dare house speaker Nancy Pelosi to hold a formal vote on on an impeachment inquiry before the White House will cooperate well. We'll be issuing. Let the White House Democrats don't have the authority to demand documents without without one the Democrats say otherwise these people are looking for anything they can get the Ukraine scandals overshadowing the September. The jobs report which showed the unemployment rate fell to three point five percent the best numbers. We've had over fifty years now. Jake some the ministry officials want to only focus on that September jobs report but it's getting harder and harder to see how they'll do that now that house Democrats just in the last hour have now requested Democrats a crowd or excuse me documents related to Ukraine from the vice president's office as well of course he traveled to Poland last month instead of the president going where he met whether Ukrainian leader though it's unclear jake how the vice president's office is going to respond to that request all right and he pushed Zilenski on the corruption issue. It's unclear if he said anything about the Biden's or any of the other investigations that the president wants Kaitlan Collins. Thank you so much president trump let's bring in in my my panel right now my experts president trump says he's only focused on corruption not investigations of his rivals but then he wasn't able to answer this question from even Jabar's about what other individuals he's pushed foreign when it comes to corruption investigation listen corrupted investigation that don't involve other cases. I have to Let me start with you. Surely the White House must have known that eventually president trump would be asked about this corruption so important you know. Where are you on on

"Let him try and go about his life as as long as he's making restitution even if he stops then only as a last resort where someone refuses to make restitution for the crime that they've committed do you then put them in prison. Even then i don't wait. What value are we. Are we driving putting them in prison. There's no there's no value in it other than to motivate them to make good on on the restitution so that we put them in prison until they are willing to work until your radio and then you walk right out yeah. It's just like okay. Look dude. You can choose to be outside living your life free with the understanding that you're going to pay back the damage that you've done or we're going to lock you down twenty three hours a day. Free feed you gruel <hes> and basically weekly lee leave you in a in a in a cage until you decide that you want to make good and the second you do the door swings open and you walk out that that's that's my only only things like the only way the only reason you should have a prison system is to motivate somebody to say okay you. Can you either have your freedom or you have no freedom and i and i gotta tell you right now. Everybody chooses freedom everybody does nobody chooses twenty three hour a day lockdown. It's absolutely the most horrific thing impossible and i have no issue with it. If you refuse to do what's right but they ought to be able to walk out of there anytime they want. If you read bob murphy's book book chaos theory. I think that's where i read this. He talks about prisons in he's he's conceives the idea of prisons and a stateless society and he talks about that prisons would be something that people would voluntarily check into as a means of their own protection because you would be if you've if you've committed a crime and you harm somebody else so many elses personal property. They're coming for you so you have an alternative rather than just trying to fend for yourself and defend yourself. You check yourself into a prison listen. The prison will protect you in return for you working you work for them and then the person who wants to come at you. The person who wants to get you can now contract act with the prison to get payment for their for their deficit and the so the prison will pay your debt and return for you now working for the prison and that's a sort of arrangement that that would be far healthier and really all of this is all born out of societies that are way too expansive and way to naturally truly concentrated which is a product of the industrial age that that it's not normal to have ten million people all crammed into one few hundred square foot area. That's a few hundred square a mile area. That's not a normal arrangement of human beings if you have a much more localized <hes> body of people where everybody's much more familiar with people a lot of these issues a lot a lot easier to sort out problems frank in the in the comments here. He said they're still needs to be neutral. Oversight and that's exactly my point is that there's there is no such thing as is neutral oversight now. There's no such thing as an as an un as a <hes> only call it an an an unin- what uninvolved party an objective the third there isn't it yes. There's no such thing as an objective. You're pretending that there is and we're paying the price for this this fairy tale yeah because anybody anybody w. Steps in even at the quote unquote objective is still bringing all of their own baggage and all of their own opinions about the way the world ought to work and what justice really is to that to that decision making process so not only are the purse the harmed party not getting justice not only a society not getting justice but the person who committed the crime isn't getting the the the justice relationship isn't there for and that's why they do have i mean before we had all of these like mandates on judges three strikes laws thousand things that they had to put somebody in prison regardless of the crime <hes> you had basically like <hes> previous rulings that you could use as a reference it's to say okay..

"The existing structure to me i would rather deal with the fallout and the potential negative have consequences of like the way the way it was for all of human history until the last couple hundred years where if you go and you harm someone else's property that person's gonna now come back and they're going to harm your harm you or your property to get return for what and do is is go back and forth. Maybe it does and so maybe that's where you have. I've battles between people fighting over past ills. That's that's your there is no clean solution to this but i would rather deal with that where there's immediate personal natural consequences for people's actions then outsourcing all of this to some sort of bloated bureaucracy that tries tries to that pretends to be a neutral third party to to do all this like. It's not a it's not a there's not going to be a clean solution and people bull are willing to accept a really really crummy solution that we have right now because they think that there's some sort of ideal the deal utopian solution where you can just do it manage this all cleanly well. I agree with you that the current system is wrecked. I don't i i'm not i'm not entirely sold that your solution lucien would be better. I i do think that there is a way to improve one of them is to break is to remove all nonviolent offenders cri- crimes where crimes crimes were. There is no victim right to remove them from the system. <hes> it seems utterly ridiculous to me that someone would be charged for a crime for which there is has no injured party that that to me is the most heinous of of our of our judicial system is that if i get caught with you know with a kilo of coke you know that what is it bam bam bam with cal. I can't remember now to joke but it was gone this week. Shabu shabu right if i could get they're gonna put me in prison. Why nobody's injured <hes> it was only people making transactions with one another. I'm not guilty of any crime other than possessing something that people don't think i should have. That's a victimless victimless is there's no crime there and you remove those people from the system you you you empty the prisons out overnight now all of a sudden three quarters of the people in prison right now. I don't know what it is. It's probably half are guilty of non violent. It crime quote unquote. I don't know i don't know in what world that seems okay or where how we got around thinking that it was okay to imprison in people for crimes which there is no injured party but that has got to change and now you're dealing only with people who have some sort of been wronged wronged <hes> in some way and the bulk of those will be financial issues i would my property was damaged. My <hes> my stuff was stolen. I was defrauded defrauded. Whatever those types of crimes right those crimes are very easy. You don't need a government there to handle that. You just need someone to say okay. Look you stole a hundred thousand thousand dollars from this guy. I don't care how long it takes you to pay back. You probably gonna be paying back your whole life because you don't have any money but you know when interest in fifty percent yeah whatever it is of everything you make now goes to him and until that debt is repaid and that's that's the only but that's very simple. It's not hard i do and he doesn't have to stay in jail for that. Why would you send him to jail now. Let him out. Let him work..

"I should certainly certainly be able to ask that person if they've ever been convicted of a crime and i should be able to go look but i shouldn't there shouldn't be this stigma over people who have committed committed crime in the past and that now <hes> are trying to live a better life because it does become harder for them if they constantly have to wear that albatross albatross around their neck <hes> but at the same time changing the language making it more flowery or or less specific does nothing to benefit society as a whole it doesn't do anything to help our communication and language all it does is all it does is <hes> muddy the waters and make it more difficult for us to communicate with one another and san francisco is in a sense doing what marketing people bowl what what <hes> i guess what individuals have been doing for years and years which is reframing what a person is or or the language that we use to make it less offensive to make it less <hes> more palatable and that in the end i think has a very negative effect on on society as a whole because it prevents us from accurately quickly and accurately communicating messaging the the reason that this isn't a positive policies because they're not changing the underlying meaning. They're changing the they're painting over it but they're like you say they're just muddying the waters because that same underlying they haven't they haven't changed the system. The problem is with the system not with the label that we put on the system then in the in the in the private group here action makes a really good point. He said if people can't be rehabbed because our entire our criminal justice system quote unquote has nothing. There's no emphasis beyond just like lip service to rehabilitation or or any type of of love on trying to there's no recompense for the for the crime committed all it is literally just punitive just punishing you because you did something we don't like and he said if people can't can't be rehabbed all crimes should carry summary execution as punishment and then he said if you can't reconcile that you understand why not letting people go on with their life once they're out of prison is wrong. Hang on translate that for me. What he's saying is that any crime should result in execution. No if you're like so like a felony in this case okay so like if you're going to say if you felony this is the thing that follows you for the rest of your life..

It and i don't even know to this day. What really causes they said. Cortisol levels were tank. Testosterone levels were tanked but my body was completely out of alignment. I was terribly ably unhealthy yet to look at me. I was overweight but not obese. You go back and look at look at videos of me from two thousand fifteen two thousand fourteen two thousand fifteen even into two thousand sixteen. I mean fat face. You know if you looked at my little belly going ride. All that stuff was happening and i was physically miserable emotionally miserable right but all the money in the world right plenty of money what i'm getting at is this when you do that type of reframing. It's not that i'm shaming anybody. Who's overweight. What i'm saying is that you are essentially trying trying to make your your unhealthiness healthy and you and your innocent shaming anybody who would go to you and say okay. I believe that you should have self worth no matter how big you are <hes> you should you should be you. Should you should feel like you have worth regardless list of what the exterior looks like because it's only the inside that really matters about a person but if you wanna have long life if you wanna have a healthy life you want to have a healthy live a long life.

Don't play that so all the stuff that i'm telling you about our great products services and you should be excited and confident to us every one of them. Of course i appreciate that because it means they will keep coming back and giving me money which i really like so all right so give me an example of how we how we reframe gay. One of the most common ones is used car has a super negative connotation to it by used car salesman sermon. Has i mean is there anybody worse. Maybe politician <hes> but used car salesman is really one of the most derogatory terms that you could be labeled as in sales in the sales world. So how do we get over this well. It's it's not a used car anymore. It's a pre-owned car right now. That is a subtle shift in language that takes the negative stigma out of used car preowned has a much lighter lighter and and and much more positive connotation to it. Oh it's pre-owned. It was owned by somebody previously so it's like it's funny because i don't really work for cars to you can't use it for mattresses mattress and you're like ooh you know pre-owned pre-owned underwear free three-hour skivvies <hes> that you can't really doesn't work for that but for a car you can make it work and you can you can subtly change it <hes> and and it has a way that they do it for close. So how do you do it for close. You don't it's not used clothing. What is it's vintage wantage right there vintage jeans. They're vintage t shirts well that really just means that some dude in one thousand nine hundred eighty when he went to def leppard concert has now turned it over to goodwill or somewhere else and they're bringing it back and calling it a vintage t shirt. I have a harley davidson shirt that i bought in <hes> in okinawa years probably twenty years ago and it's definitely vintage and it was owned by somebody else long before i owned. I love that shirt but i don't call it a used used shirt. Oh yeah. I got this used shirt. It's my vintage harley davidson t shirt. That's the kind of thing that you can do in order to modify and warp language now in the the psychological process. There's two different forms of this. There's pre framing and then there is reframing. Pre framing is a process of setting setting someone up to be predisposed to your message prior to them ever showing up in front of you so it's to organize their thoughts their behaviors their actions their beliefs chiefs prior to you communicating a messaging with them that makes them predisposed to your message and i'm not gonna get into that today because why could give you a dozen examples examples of it but it's not important for our conversation. Just understand pre framing happens before they show up. Reframing is when you have someone who already has a belief system about them or who they are and you or about life in general the way the world works and what you wanna do is reframe frame that from a in a way that benefits you case. It's not necessarily in a positive we might re frame it as something negative. A reframe doesn't go from negative to positive..

"I'm going to start running through my day of all the things that i want all of the vision of my future that i want in addition to all the things i need to get done that day. So by the time i finished that first cup of coffee i not only have a vision of the future that i'm trying to achieve but i also have the tasking list that i need to get done that day. To be the most productive i can be and then it just becomes a matter of okay. How do i organize my day to accomplish those things it that one thing that one exercise of combining something that nobody really wants to do which is goal setting and planning nobody. I mean being planning stuff especially if you're a creative like i am anything that you really wanna. Do i hate anything that's not creative essentially and so by combining those two things together that one act has increased my productivity by at least three hundred percent. I don't know by the it's. I can't measure it but i know what i get done now. Over the course of a week is ten times what i used to get done because i simply have a plan and have a a schedule and i started off my day with something that allowed me to visualize what i want my life to look like and to get me motivated to get there so <hes> a couple of things that he was talking about in their matt you and i <hes> <hes> one of the big ones that you and i both mentioned is that change is tied to identity it was his quote was was true behavior. Change is his identity change yes and so we talked so much <hes> in in my courses and and we are we the last night for the first time i released least i opened the doors up for the new iconic course and in it's a personal branding course that covers a lot of psychology so <hes> one of the things that i'm a huge proponent of is is teaching you and imparting upon you the importance of understanding that all of us are in a state of change that we are all in some aspect or area three of our life unhappy and really your ability to your ability to improve the world to change the world to to fill your own pockets <hes> by providing value to others figuring out how you can take somebody who's unhappy and make them happy a pain point and turn it in and remove it from their lives and if you you can do that there is no limit to the amount of money that you can end and influence you can have in the world and so we talk a lot about current reality and desired reality -ality. Where are they now. What does it look like. What does it feel like where are the pain points and then what is the desired reality.

Was you know if you're trying to for example quit smoking. You can constantly tell people who offer you a cigarette now. I'm i'm trying going to quit but subconsciously you still define yourself as a smoker. If you choose instead to say no. I'm don't smoke will now. You've defined yourself yourself. Your identity is now low longer smoker trying to quit. Your identity is someone who doesn't smoke and the difference in how you attack life life in attack..

"On on the show or monday on the show matt says told me about a book called atomic habits which i've been looking at in the string but i just a lot of times you see this. Do i want want to read another book on habits. I mean i've read several of them and i i already have kind of my own habits and rituals that i use. Is this something that is. I really need in my life right and when you said it's an incredible book it's awesome literally on the show i went and downloaded it and i bought it and i've been listening to it for the last couple of days and it is really good. It's maybe the best book on habits that i've ever read mainly because he focuses on some deep level psychological stuff that most habit books don't focus on most of them. Don't understand human behavior. Don't understand psychology and what i noticed is. Is it several of the things that he was suggesting that you do. I already do on a on a pretty regular basis not to say i mean there's naturally stuff. I can work on. I don't want to pretend like oh already knew at all. I was doing all that stuff but there's plenty of stuff that i wasn't implementing but more importantly he gave a name and a framework to what i was doing. That's going to help me in the future build even better habits so one of the things that he talks about is how you can form habits by attaching habits together so if you already know that you <hes> you like to for example that you wanna work out more but you don't workout as much as you want what you do. Is you really like. Flop down on the couch and watch your favorite television show. One of the things he talks about is okay. We'll do this do the workout out and right after the workout. Go and watch your favorite television show. He said what that does is it. What you will begin to do is create an association and he gives examples of this psychological examples apples this he said you'll begin to create an association and a deep desire to work out not only because of all of the positive physical benefits that come from working out but because you have attached that habit which you've found difficult in the past to something that you find very easy to do he says the easier your habits are and the more and by attaching difficult habits that you want to form two more simple habits that come easy to you the better it will be <hes> we to. I can't remember if i talked. I did talk about it on this. Show <hes> in in the morning. I get outta bed because i want coffee i lit. I love coffee. It is i will get up early. If i wake up early. Sometimes it's four o'clock in the morning and i find myself awake for more than about five minutes. I start thinking about coffee and i will get up at four a._m. Them to go have coffee and what i wanted to do. Was i wanted to make sure that i was associating something productive with that morning coffee. So if i'm getting out of bed to drink what else can i do to become more productive. That's how my future casting. Ritual became something became a thing is that i would get up in the morning have my cup of coffee now. I have this piping hot cup of coffee. It's gonna take me ten minutes to drink. What do i do while i'm drinking my coffee. I'm i'm gonna do my future casting. I'm going to start running through my day of all the things that i want all of the vision of my future that i want in addition to all the things i need to get done that day. So by the time i finished.

Chinas surveillance state
"One of the crucial stories of the last few decades has been China's extraordinary surge to catch up with the rest of the world in manufacturing technology. And in economic military and cultural power, one of the other crucial stories of the last few decades has been the erosion of privacy in the online era and on that front China is pulling a distance ahead. China is in the process of assembling an immense and pervasive apparatus of surveillance, which will monitor and punish and reward, the most every day of behaviors and interactions of more than a fifth of the world's people, the prophets of doom of the pre computer age. Imagine that any such system would have to be imposed by a dictatorship even George Orwell did not envisage that the population of airstrip one would voluntarily surrender personal information to the state, the communist party of China is assuredly a dictatorship. But has it also understood that a great many people below? Leave privacy to be over rated. What is the reality of China's surveillance state how might develop in future? And is it a case of today? China tomorrow, the world, this is the foreign desk. They intend the system to record every single action transaction by each Chinese citizen, whether it's economic transactions social actions are moral behavior. And then in the end create the system that ideally, in real time can sanction you and censor your or reward. You also, we've known for a long time that Goodland Facebook's business motor profit revenue has come from essentially selling our attention and that requires having a sense of what we interested in also kind of maximize the value of our time spent on decision. But I think maybe we just the fact that for all the convenience truly the enjoyment, we might get from these services. There is a price to be paid into the day some. Oh, my friends, when we want to talk about something that we think, well, public Ed attention from the police, we tried to, like, okay, let's meet offline less meeting cafe. And to have a discussion more and more. I don't want to talk about. Real issues out, like we had wayball. You're listening to the foreign desk on monocle twenty four with me, Andrew Miller on today show on joined by Caroline can and keisters matter, Caroline can is an editor a China dialogue, and the author of under red skies, memoir of growing up in China. Caroline joins us here in the studio in London and Kayce strip matter is a journalist and the author of we have been harmonized life in China's surveillance state. He joins us from Copenhagen welcome both KAI. I'll start with you. Just so we can define some terms here and make it clear. Exactly what we're talking about. China's surveillance state as referred to in the subtitle of your book is a common phrase. I suspect it's one of those, which is rather more talked about than understood. So when we talk about China's surveillance state. What is it exactly? We are talking about. Well, actually we are talking about a whole youth thing now. China was always the dictatorship. It was always a civilian state, but what heating paying. The communist party's doing now that they're basically re inventing their dictatorship with twenty-first-century information technology with artificial intelligence, and with big data and stuff. So basically we're going to see something developing their that the world has never seen that before. Caroline, what's your sense of it as somebody who lives in Beijing? Because a recurring theme of your book, certainly in the time you've been alive since one thousand nine hundred nine is one of state intrusion into people's lives, which would be regarded as extrordinary in most countries. Is it your sense that it is exceleron getting exponentially, because of the technology and the way that Kyd describes? I think when I was younger, there was a time when there was more and more freedom, and especially with the development internet. But then clearly like since the year two thousand twelve or two hundred thirteen I could feel that freedom has been shrinking. And now as kaija said, almost every street in Beijing any city. I you see the sec- TV's cameras catching any images of people whatever people are doing. I also have the fear that Wease the big data technology like people would ever they do Welby, so closely monitored. And to me, that is quite worrying, Koi, again, to return just to the basic idea of how this actually functions. We're not talking yet. Are we about one immense, centralized technological panel to knishes still a, a mishmash of overlapping dot networks? It is at the moment. Yes. Very much. So. I mean, a lot has been written, for example, about the Social Credit system, which is part of this whole effort, but it's only one piece of the puzzle, and there are many, many other different pieces of the puzzle and of course, the central government tries to sort of get a grip on all of this, and maybe especially the state security apparatus would like to have in the end one big database. But of course, the big question is like in all those used bureaucracies, will they actually be able to make it work exactly in that way? But even if they won't I would say there is enough to be worried about Carolina Social Credit system, which is something which is attracted a lot of attention in the last couple of years in particular, again, I think the some of the reporting of it may have focused perhaps overly on the lurid science fiction imagination of it, as Chinese citizen, who lives in China. How does it affect you on a day to day? Level as you go about your life. It is not like something that you see every day. Oh, you feel like getting so close to your every day. Maybe there's something that you don't have access to review your own Social Credit. Like the only thing I noticed in my life, a kind of, related to sort of crowded is, there's alipay like an app by Alibaba and there's a function of borrowing money. And if we repay back the money in time that you cried you score at rising. So that is the only thing I see so far about it about, of course, I heard stories about people who don't pay money in time, and they got the candle blocked from going to buy a train tickets or of flight tickets. And this kind of like being black list, and I don't know how was you up, like least how do you get rid of that list? So that is something that I, I think that will affect the people's live. Corey, how does that differ, though, or how might it different future from credit writing systems that you have in any developed country, really whereby an frankly, not unreasonably if it becomes the case that you are a credit risk? If you have a history of paying back, things late or not at all, then it does become increasingly hard for you to borrow money or get a mortgage. How different scale we talking about here in, in the Chinese experience. Well, the interesting thing is that actually Allah systems, probably were sort of starting point for the Chinese system, but the main difference, of course, is that it doesn't restrict itself to financial transactions the aim of the government in the end is they intend the system to record every single action in transaction by each Chinese citizen,

An academic in the UK wrote recently with the need to do away with such offensive language, and is ridiculous. As it sounds. They're going to do it.
