Study Hall: Summit on Sustainable Fashion

"Went to study hall recently. No I didn't get detention. It was actually the exact opposite of detention. It was this really beautiful amazing six our experience. That happened a few weeks ago. Here in New York City Study Hall is an Educational Conference like that which is organized by slow factory and slow factories. Co-founder selene Simone. And it was this amazing six our experience of hearing from designers scientists educators and activists all on the topic of climate positively at scale within the fashion industry. So I know that you actually watched it online so you our listeners can also watch it online. How did you feel about study hall? Well first of all. It's it's an annual free summit on sustainable fashion so anyone can get tickets go which is so cool and then she also puts it all online so people like myself and address listeners. Who could not make the event you can see this incredible You know conference and bringing together of all of these people that are working on sustainable fashion so like how do we build a better? More sustainable ethic conscious fashion industry now and for the future so I was excited about this event and very excited of to watch it. Even if I wasn't there in person yeah and there were actually seven hundred people there in person. So how yeah. They were estimating that it was going to be something like five hundred and it was actually held at the New York Times Center. Which is this beautiful event space and auditorium and they had to turn the TV room that they set up downstairs into an overflow room. Kezman writing people were super into it. It was just an incredible day. I left so inspired. There were so many panelists that were amazing right and including the person who opened the conference is our past guest Carina Emmerick and really beautiful dedication. she's a native American fashion designer and she did this really beautiful recognition of the land that nyc sits on as being the home of the lanark people who were moved to Oklahoma in eighteen sixties. So the whole the whole day was really great. And I don't know what your takeaways were but my takeaways from the day were that planetary health is human health that climate change is a human rights issue And also so many panelists. It kept coming back again and again and again that there's this direct correlation between environmental abuses and human rights abuses And I'M NOT GONNA go into like Hella detail here but you can jump on study hall yourself and listen in if you want to. But but it was. I opening inspirational heartbreaking at times. But but really really great. Yeah so Crema opened the show with a powerful land. Acknowledgement LIKE WHITNEY. Mcguire did this Powerful labor acknowledgement so you have the landing management and then you have the Labor acknowledgement. You know this country is built on the backs of millions of enslaved African Americans. You know so. It's kind of just this reminder of of where we come from so that we can move forward to a brighter future with acknowledging where we came from and where this country comes from and how it was built and who have been the custodians of this country before us. Yeah I mean Creena just to quote her. She said indigenous people make up four percent of the world's population and we are still protecting eighty percent of the world's biosystems and she didn't explicitly say this but she kind of reminded us that while Greta. Thunberg is a powerful white activist. She's become the face of climate change. Indigenous activists have been fighting for the last two centuries to protect their land. But Yeah my main takeaways. All Star that climate change is a human rights issue. I think you have panelists Lillian Lou. Who said one in six people in the world work in a job related to fashion that sixty million people worldwide and only about two percent earn a living wage? So you know lots of really powerful stuff. Climate Positivie was the theme so quote to close low for actually going back to our roots of living in harmony with nature by providing sustainable scalable solutions for the long-term with ecologically regenerative practices and projects in alignment with environmental justice for Black Brown and indigenous communities. And something I thought was so cool and I know I think I called you to talk about April was the one x one conscious design initiative which is so cool it says partnership between the Slow Factory Foundation and Serov Sqi supported by the UN. And basically it's these partnerships. I abstained future. So you're pairing fashion designers with scientists for instance and designer telfar. Clemens is paired with scientists the end Skyros. Yeah she's a professor at fit. And I my mind was literally blown out. I have her on the show and in fact after we get on recording this. I'm just gonNA email her and be like hi. Would you like to come on the show? Yeah because not only. Is she working with her students? Fit to bio engineer. Leather and algae-based yarn. So just think about that. I can trust listeners. She went and she was talking about it on on study hall about how you can grow leather shapes essentially so without even having to so it because algae will just form to itself around a mold she has this incredible company called algae net with their motto is biology is the future of fashion and they promote this closely product life cycle so so many cool things happening and I think you should absolutely ask her on the show that would be really really cool to hear more about bio

You see the core problem with the call to battle. Lessons is that we are penalizing. Young image bearers with low expectations. We we do this whenever we elevate teen spokespersons without requiring them to know what they're talking about. We also do this when we say that. Teenagers can't know what they're talking about. Both approaches mistakenly assume this mythological period of live called actually exist a time when young people can't be expected acted to know or to act like grown-ups and our book a practical guide to Culture Brett.

You see the core problem with the call to battle. Lessons is that we are penalizing. Young image bearers with low expectations. We we do this whenever we elevate teen spokespersons without requiring them to know what they're talking about. We also do this when we say that. Teenagers can't know what they're talking about. Both approaches mistakenly assume this mythological period of live called actually exist a time when young people can't be expected acted to know or to act like grown-ups and our book a practical guide to Culture Brett. Conklin I debunked the myth of adolescence. Young adults should champion big ideas. He is an important causes and in the process they should expect to encounter and be ready to answer opposing arguments. Something they're fully capable of of doing see one of the best things we can do for young adults this to respect them enough to expect more of them and of ourselves

That's google dot com slash grow. And now the Spiel time person of the year. Greta Tune Berg. You you know her. She wears a Pale Pink Hoodie. Her head is Donald Trump. She has come in for a lot of unhinged cruel stupid criticism and after say among the stupidest is the trump campaign putting the president's head on this sixteen year old girl's body it just befuddles all my preconceived notions of structural Karol integrity usually when it comes to persons of the year designations. I keep my powder dry but now I shall way in and I did in fact over the weekend way in critically and I WANNA win critically not critically as in the sense of criticizing or flaw finding or picking apart but offer eliminated critical analysis. I was thinking about why people are thinking about her. Why Time magazine would name her person of the year? Why Time magazine Zien thinks that newsstand sales will benefit from naming her person of the year? Why people find her compelling why my son finds a euro and so I was thinking about this? I did it on twitter quitter and I was called problematic I was not exactly called a pedophile but I was said to be using the tools of pedophilia. I do not think this is the case this though problem I defer twitter on such issues. Now what I don't WanNa do is my most hated genre. where a podcast host angrily lashes out at at his twitter critics because podcast audiences and twitter audiences are really different audiences? One lends itself to a deeper contemplation of consideration of the issue. The other things. It's funny to change your name to a Santa Pan which is by the way how Kris kringle did it. So here's my thesis and it's this Greta tune. Berg is a captivating communicator. This seems is obvious this is why she captured the person of the year designation. It is not an honor. It is a designation realized. This trump wanted in two thousand sixteen. Greta is compelling captivating charismatic for a number of reasons among them she speaks well she speaks starkly she has the facts at her disposal. She does not try to win her audience over her with conventional charm. Also she speaks rather softly. It's not a scream. Even when she is thundering. It's more like a sustained steady rain in here. Listen to her so there it is again. This is my message. This is what I want you to focus on so please tell me. How do you react to the numbers without feeling at least some level of panic nick? How do you respond to the fact that basic nothing is being done about this without feeling the slightest bit of anger? And how do you communicate this without sounding. Alarmist I would really like to know okay so along with all those things things subject area knowledge and engaging speaking style and an unflinching way of not letting the audience off the hook there is another aspect to Greta ton Bergh's ability to attract interest and to hold the public's attention and this is true especially because most people have experienced her via television or online video. It is of course how she looks. How a person looks informs other people's opinions of them and my observation is that gratitude Berg looks young? This is because Greta Tone Berg is in fact young. She is going which be seventeen in less than three weeks but I think she looks even younger than that. And because of the visual of the young girl speaking truth to power that power being older almost always male it striking she is a prodigy and the more of a child that she seems to be the more prodigious she also so seems I was. I made this observation which people called creepy but I found this observation is not particularly novel. I guess you could say maybe there. There are a Lotta creeps out there. For instance Robinson Meyer who covers climate change for the Atlantic writes. It is always at least a little uncomfortable see young person become an icon. It robs them of the privacy of growing up but turn Berg is an especially flexing figure. She looks younger than her years yet. Her speeches take a shaming authoritative tone in another Atlantic article titled Greta. Tonsberg is right to panic. Franklin four rights when Tonsberg address panels at the United Nations and lectured European parliaments. The inversion version of roles was striking. The child. She looks younger than sixteen. Has assumed the authoritative posture of the adult. The Asians France presses. Nina Larsson writes Tonsberg with her small stature and round cheeks looks younger than sixteen the Financial Times concurs. They use the proper Swedish Pronunciation Association of Tonsberg Surname. That's in Bang is slightly hard to spot. Because she is so little less than five feet tall. My favorite was zoe. Weil in psychology. Today she lists some bullet points explaining to in Berg's potency one she's heroic in her integrity is her superpower to. She's unique three. Greta is young and looks younger her so he will by the way has given six. Ted Talks is the recipient of the Unity College Women in Environmental Leadership Award and is the author of the world becomes what we teach educating a generation of solution airs. CNN points to Greta Tonsberg as being a solution. Air Little Solution Airy or loose illusionary. A tiny soft-spoken Swede to say our house is on fire. But if you want to really diminishing observation check out this one. She has actually read Ed. The dense depressing warnings of the IPC reports. Yeah really an expert on this subject. You really reads the reports okay. Maybe now you're saying Mike prove your case two or three times over the recent I go to such lengths. Is that my observation. That she's particularly young looking was met with resistance. I I guess it comes with the territory. Whenever a man in his forty says anything about the appearance of a teenage girl I got the male gaze charge the being problematic thing the sexualizing and teenagers idea and the general accusation of craziness to demonstrate that Tonsberg did appear younger than sixteen appears subjective? I tried to get empirical. I use that Microsoft APP where you give it a photo of a person and IT estimates the age turns out different pictures of Tonsberg scan according to this APP as six eleven eleven and thirteen. I've used this with my family many times but one helpful twitter user said that this service must exist as an aide to pedophile. 's how would this work. We forget I asked the reason that it's legitimate to know ton Burg's appearance is not to diminish power but to analyze where the power comes from from if it is legitimate to write articles discussing the semiotics of Nancy. Pelosi is white pants suits and it is then value can be gained from considering Tonsberg. Burg's words actions comportment speaking style appearance tactics and affect Greg Ton. Berg is an icon. Being named Time's a person of the year solidifies. Her Conic Status ICONOGRAPHY is interesting and it is useful to examine. What parts of iconography you have a hold on us? Unlike Nancy Pelosi or New Zealand's juice into our dern were to a large extent. We are not interested in Greta a ton Berg because she has power she has power because we are interested in her. And why are we interested lots of reasons. But one is like I said she's an icon a symbol a living embodiment of what devastation. Our policies are leaving for the children. A child shall lead us and in this case a child will shame us and the more these withering lessons and critiques. Seem like they are coming from a child old. Who seems very much like child the more potency? The critiques half mean today this is the day after the conference of the parties the COP twenty eighty five broke down over among other factors the trump administration's obstructionism. It is a value to examine all the ways we have of communicating an important lesson to the world and to ourselves. And that's it for today show. The Gist is produced by Daniel Schrader and Christina Joseh where younger than they look cumulatively but I am unwilling to break that down on a producer juicer by producer basis. They're really spry and youthful collectively. Speaking the gist. A five and three quarters year-old podcast. But we do you have the reading level of an eight year old flog Predappio do Peru and thanks for.

"Why we can now will have guns in schools and campus carry and things like that. What about a military base where people can't carry weapons? What about on an airplane or when you hear the president talk or things like that? So they're all of these these inconsistencies in this logic and I think on the best side you might be able to say. Well here's what the Supreme Court trying to iron out is like. How can we have some national standards for this kind of thing that that would be a kind reading? But I also think it's also about expanding Heller rights into the public sphere. That really were in for a much bigger controversy if it it is the case that you know you've demonstrated a gun and other people have demonstrated that a gun in the home does increase the chances of an innocent person in that home dying via gun mostly that gun. What about the? There's not great statistics on it. But what about the concealed carry laws has that led to an increase in shooting. Anyone who tells you anything about gun. Demographic data is probably ultimately. We don't know the reason is because there's a congressional ban ban effectively on doing large scale research on. We don't have the kind of databases that we need to assess some of these issues. And so I think the first answer is I don't know but in general general I would say that I've yet Assia study. That doesn't link more guns with more shooting. So more guns in the home lead to more more suicides and partner violence in the home the question of I guess. I'm asking a slightly different question if we have the same number of guns but you were allowed to have concealed carry either by different ways to adjudicate that by permit not by permit is there. Evidence is there empirical evidence. There is yeah. There is evidence that anything basically I'd say that the data trend and social science research is basically the more guns you introduce into space. The more shootings are going to be in that space so there are laws that link. Stand your ground laws with more shooting. There are laws that link concealed carry in in particular arenas show exactly exactly so certainly i. I would say that that's the case that the Morgan's and so the big question is are shootings. You know. It's basically what is shootings represent. People defending themselves against intruders as it accidental shootings. Is it partner violence. The research that I do shows that actually a a very very small percentage of that is protecting your family against a carjacker. which is what a lot of the advertisements? And Ray. What's to think most shooting is you know suicide or accidental shooting or things like that but I would say the the answer basically to your question is yes it also seems to me this if those basic facts are hard to get a hold of it seems especially especially hard to answer a question like this but there might be a threshold where there are so many guns in a society that it leads to not just more guns more death but it leads to an argument that actually you should have concealed carry gun? It leads to an argument like if I were to argue in New York City. Yeah concealed carry is a good idea terrible argument because most other people don't have guns. If I were to make that same Morgan Murph my friend from Dallas where to make that argument I might say actually you might have more of the point because there are a lot of guns out there and defense by gun becomes more logical with a lot of guns. Then get to this case. The case of the mistaken identity identity of the off duty police officer who shot the man who she thought was in her home. Maybe if that's a New York City off duty police officer because he he is either by training or just by feeling the environment he's not expecting to encounter some with a gun in Dallas. You are expecting and it is more logical all to expect that to be someone with a gun. I have no idea how to study that but these are things that just feel like they should be true. No and and I think they are chew in a certain kind of way in other words part of the reason why New New York has been effective reasonably effective in. The sense is because there's a pretty good chance that you don't have a gun and the next the next person doesn't have a gun and I think that that really creates creates a certain kind of social engagement cohesion. Factors like that The minute one person gets a gun in your on the subway you have a gun also and so what that does is it. Foments markets right the NRA is a marketing. It's a gun manufacturers or what they're trying to do is tap markets and. I think it's really that mistrust if you look at a lot of gun advertisements you know. Now there's a push toward women owning guns for example you know because it could be bring gun date rape and stuff stuff like that. There was a push for ago. They hired a guy named Colin Nawar to do You know the police aren't going to protect you so you need. It's all about markets right and the minute New York and La you become markets all if you know if your neighbor as a gun you're gonNA need a gun and so I think that's really what's at stake. Here is keeping particular version of New York that we have which is a low gun relatively low gun. Death more neighborly version or do we want to become much more like a southern city where there are more guns and more shootings. I agree and in fact. It's not entirely the implications of this by the way hasn't always led me to liberal or progressive policies. For instance. I talked to Emily Basilan on who wrote a book about diversionary programs and part of it was new. York City does punish very harshly people with gun. Non People without criminal records who are just just found to have a gun and she argued that there should be more diversionary programs. We should be more lenient. You don't understand the mindset of a young in kids in the inner city who thinks he might need a gun for protection I said but in New York we do. That is a lot illogical feeling most of the time because we have such low gun gun crimes. It's less legitimate than Philadelphia to argue. I only needed a gun for protection. Anyway that's maybe not the most liberal policy to take but that's when I take take no but but I I think that's important to think about right. There's a bigger question which is how does the presence of a gun changed social interactions when it's not being fired how's that change issues like diversity and city city planning and factors like that so I think these are bigger questions not just about death. Data are really about what kind of what kind of society we went in. And the other thing. I think that's important that we know from past experiences the minute you get guns into place. It's very hard to get them out right. So it's better to have policies in the front side. Yeah you know look no matter what our ideal gun policies are. We're very much hemmed in. By what the gun reality is like we're not doing a buy back of a couple hundred million guns Are we like that's not going handguns. That's not going to happen. We have more than one gun per citizen in this right like we could WANNA be Japan. It's not going to happen. So let's not try to craft policy that aims to be Japan and the place where guns are regulated. I mean this is really what the Post Sandy Hook Post. Heller two thousand eight modern gun control movement and have been built on is. It's a balancing act right. I think really for me. The gun control movement is miscast by the right as I wanNA grab your gun. That's not what it is. It's basically a a balancing act between respecting gun rights and thinking about public space on public safety right and so the whole modern gun control movement is not saying I'm going to grab dear guns. It's basically saying in particular public settings you can't carry a gun or you can't carry a particular kind of gun because you know that there's a broader issue public like safety and I really think that's what's at stake in this court case is there and I talked to a professor about this. One's is there a better way. A kinder way away that my breakthrough to communicate. We don't WanNa grab of your guns because every one who advocates for gun control says it and they're never believe so what's the point of saying it or is there a different way to say. Well I think you know it'll be it'll be interesting to see how this all plays out because of course the minute that the want to call it the gun control side really. It's The gun violence prevention side. But the minute the gun control side changes the language. Then the other side changes the language pathologist that and so it's It's much a fight about rhetoric as it is about anything else. Jonathan Metal fessard vanderbilt.

V The city of New York. I back the side with guns right. Well it's a little complicated because it's not even clear that the Supreme Court will be ruling on anything because the city he actually changed the law. After this case was brought the Supreme Court I grew up with would just say. That's not good enough for a huge precedent. But this was the first big guns case of any distinction to come to the court in about a decade Jonathan mets. Aw Who's a professor. At Vanderbilt University who wrote dying of Whiteness was was down there talking to people who are passionate about guns. He's done a lot of research into the harm done by guns and he just didn't. I just wanted to brief him. Smart Guy passed just guest. Let's see what he learned. Hello thanks for coming in Jonathan. It's great to be back. So what was your intention going down in to get a monitor the case and the people around I. I've been doing gun policy work for quite some time. As we talked about the last time I was here I'm the research director of an organization called the Safe Tennessee Z.. Project which is a bipartisan. Basically a bipartisan organization at Tennessee. That looks at. How can we create smart gun policy? I've been monitoring this case for a long time in part because so much of contemporary policy emanates not from activism from grassroots up from elections but from courts and so the fact that the Supreme Court picked up a case like this was something that immediately got my attention and I've written a couple of pieces about the case I wrote a piece in the New York Times about the implications for New York and so I've been also following it from a scholarly perspective active but I think more than anything I also went down there just to kind of get a sense of what a Supreme Court Gun case feels like because we haven't had one in about ten years since McDonald. Well a you know McDonalds and Heller before that so it's been a while I think wisely avoided but seems to be coming down the pipe now now on the show I've talked laudatory about my cities gun on laws and their reflected in the city of New York part and it used to be the case that you could own a gun in New York. I mean some people say you just can't own a gun but you can only transport it to one of seven gun ranges in the city and in fact if you own that gun you couldn't even take it in a locked case out of the city to say your country home. Now they changed the law. And you can. I don't know that we need to go that far and I don't think that we could go that far in say Tennessee in terms of passing gun laws but was that essentially what was on the docket was the supreme court weighing in on could other cities if they want to adopt. New York's gun laws. Well I think it's important to note that there were two levels of what was happening. In the Supreme Court Case Level one which was the overt level was nothing. What's happening and the reason nothing was happening is because the Supreme Court took a case based on an arcane law from New York that as you suggest was basically like could guys who own guns privately Lee and had tested you know? Have the right to those guns. Could they take those guns to their second home. Could they take those guns shooting. Ranges and New York had a law. That was basically you. You can take it as long as you basically disassemble and so you know right right if it wasn't a gun park it's like here. Here's a part of something like that. And so this was a kind of silly law and three or four random people basically said hey this is a violation and it got picked up and so when this case started to go through the courts courts I a court and a court of Appeals Locally said yes the New York is in its second amendment rights to basically have a lot like this but when the Supreme Court took it up basically goes like well. It's not worth the fight for this such a small thing and so they basically overturned it and now those guys can take their guns anywhere. They want in the context of this case. That's one level for those guys. Those five guys taking your guns to your country and so that's why the argument the argument at the Supreme Court was about what's called moutainous because it's like why should we be having having this conversational. So point number one is was about moutainous the point to about shooting right. Well moutainous let me just say. Is that the plaintiff got everything they want. They want and so that's important to note so the fact that the Supreme Court still took the case even after all this I think is leads. End Two point two to which is a big question about. Can you carry guns in public. Who can carry guns in public? Where can you carry guns in public? And this leads back to something. Called called the Heller decision in two thousand eight which basically said an individual has a right to own guns in their home but states towns and cities like New York or Los Angeles have a right I to regulate where people can carry guns and that has led to a basically the modern gun control movement other words saying yes. People can have a gun at home but we can you know you can't carry a gun in school. You can't agree on the subway or things like that and New York is the poster child for what I feel like our effective gun law so well well don't say it with field. The fact show are affected most. Yeah I think that's that's exactly right for a city this size with this density with this level full of kind of different people running around and abutting each other all the time. This is exactly what you want in an ideal universe you would say what's working in New York and let's take that to places where were there are high rates of gun death dead. What the Supreme Court basically said is? We're willing to consider a case from a city that has markedly effective gun laws. And what that is is really honestly a shot across the bow that they're willing to consider a bigger story which is should we expand what are called. Heller Rights Heller rights are basically not just to somebody have a right to own a gun in the house but does the constitution regulate and basically say that you can also carry a gun in public. Which would overturn the city and state gun laws in a place like New York which say you can't carry a gun on the subway? You can't carry a gun around into this building like that and so what was at stake was a much. It's bigger question. The first salvo in a much bigger question which is is basically the right to concealed carry a loaded. Firearm is that something a state or the city can regulate or is it a national right and I think that's a huge question because it has implications not just for New York but really for the entire country and the gun control central movement as we know it if it is the case that there are some forms of fire arms that can be banned. And this isn't much debated I mean on the fringes. Maybe someone someone will argue. You can own a tank or you can own anti artillery shells or you can own a fully automatic machine gun. So if it's the case that's some guns can be banned and still not be in violation of the Second Amendment. How do you make the case that principle stops at this kind of gun or that kind of gone or that instance of owning a gun? I mean that's really one of the things that that's up for debate and you know I I would say that there especially for this argument right there in my sense is that there are a lot of people in the centre. I mean I think the majority of the country probably would respect the second amendment but before background checks and red flag laws and assault weapons bans. That's probably most people. But on the fringes of this argument there are people who were trying to overturn the Hughes amendment that regulates if you can have a machine gun or not there are people and so the minute this becomes a safety issue. which is I think what they're saying? The question is really does carry a gun make you safer or does it make a community or society less safe and I really think that. That's the issue. The other I think inconsistency here are what are called gun-free zones right and so they're faction of this against having a gun free zone which is.

"Nineteen from slate. It's the gist. I might ask seems like a done deal. The entire house is to vote Wednesday today the Senate is to take it from there and unless something really weird happens like Mitt Romney gets a crisis of conscience that spreads like Bolo within his caucus. Trump trump will be acquitted. He will then mark my words conflict acquittal with exoneration send out some fundraising letters on that point then prominent Democrats Kratz noting that he sent out fundraising letters on that point will send out their own counter fundraising letters and a vote. That is likely to be ninety. Eighty nine percent or more along party lines we'll do nothing so much as cement the power of partisanship partisanship does runamuck. Oh yes it does today. In The New York Times veteran veteran Watergate reporter Elizabeth drew notes. The impeachment process is barely functioning. Hyper partisan politics and implacable president may break Congress's ability to check him. The current proceedings Elizabeth drew rights have demonstrated how fragile the constitutions impeachment clauses. The idea of the clause was to hold the president accountable for misdeeds between elections. But it's now clearer than ever that it doesn't work very well in the context of a very partisan in political atmosphere and now going to offer you a counter argument but I the caveats here come the caveats. We love the caveats. What's Q.? The caveats theme. We have no caveats team but anyway hear the caveats yes. This impeachment is and will continue to be partisan just the impeachment and acquittal of Bill Clinton Clinton was almost entirely but not entirely partisan but almost and yes. The founders did not foresee political parties. They're bad they should have. and and you partisanship has many damaging effects and furthermore the arguments of one of the sides in this partisan divide or really rather poor here is for for instance Ted Cruz on. ABC's this week in this is trying to undermine an election and it's why it's not going to go anywhere in the Senate. It's not going to go anywhere in the Senate because the facts don't back them up you know that is not why it's not going to go anywhere in the Senate but the reason that it won't go anywhere in the Senate is not partisanship per se. It might look like it because all the Republicans will vote to acquit trump. But that's not really why he'll be acquitted. It is not a perversion Of Democracy that he will be acquitted. It is not the founders vision being inadequate for this moment the reason that impeachment is not going anywhere in the Senate is the requirement that conviction be by a two thirds vote and yes sure how allow I guess is a caveat to hear Cohn the caveats sure I will allow the partisanship as a whole has perhaps perverted us perverted the media and perhaps even confused an adult old some of the followers of some of the partisans but my point is this if you require conviction. By two thirds of the elected officials tasked asked with conviction or acquittal. Do that is the requirement there is no fair representative way to assemble a body of elected officials where you would get a two-thirds thirds vote for conviction it is not a failure of the process. It is a precise carrying out of the process that you will get an acquittal in the Senate. Because you can't again you can't get a body of people representing all. Americans were two thirds of them. Think the president should be acquitted. Maybe that's wrong. Maybe that's annoying. Yes it is annoying. But it's just a fact. More than a third of Americans think the president should not be convicted. The elected officials officials representing at least those third of Americans are going to be able to vote to acquit. And Yeah I know that the Senate wasn't even designed to originally be representative not even directly elected and I also know that those changes were seen and in fact were progressive but the Senate will vote not guilty because it's more than a third of the people want their senators to vote not guilty. That may be immoral illiberal. Ignorant or unfair it is just not undemocratic and democratic on the show. Today I will spiel about Greta tune. Burg's Oh that is not precisely how to pronounce her name. I will spiel about one aspect of what makes makes her such a compelling figure but I the Supreme Court recently heard their first two big gun case in years and the justices were not happy now with guns now with gun control with the fact that since the case got to them the state whose law that they were checking in on change the actual law. Now if you read a lot of analysis about that case it was centered on the idea that the case might go nowhere because it was mooted by New York state but my guest was there and he said a lot of observers are getting this wrong. This case portends a big setback for the forces of gun control it offers a glimpse onto where the justices this is. Wont You Take Gun Rights and that is a place of he worries. More guns knocked. You're Jonathan Metal. Author of dying of Whiteness is here to talk about guns.

She can't get some match you left she left the room that no the woman who said Chen aged like it when you did little short truck videos and you're funny and she's what she called me she said you are the what ripped or cut it was I was talking about how chisel she said chiseled rant her yeah I like that but now you got you got in Chunky an angry she said you must be angry the old and crotchety and so then it then it went on to give her like seven hundred fifty comments underneath that I I can really ruin your day and you can really ruin your day because all I got it was comment under one of your stupid comments it's GonNa make for a bad day had a dude food yesterday or no couple of days ago who came at me about about a post that I had made read these well that happened to him months ago and I was like well make sure to run everything you know you got it you out a new material that that story happened two months ago well it was still relevant today he's like I'm like I'll just run everything through from now on for your approval so now everybody Sir jumping his ass and he was just like coming back at them you know you're a bunch of sheep Chad doesn't know what he's talking about Chad Chad just an opinion person he's not affiliated with any news organization journal you're following him you're listening I'm like or you know if you're losing a frigging mines and so he just doing this long several he keeps bringing me up and finally this went on for like eighteen hours in yesterday morning as common as dude if you invoke my name one more time I'm just have no choice but just to boot you I've let you say everything you you want to say because I try not to block or band anybody sure I'll let you say what you want to say and you know he's like the suit as your sheep quit and then now quit you feel me I was like yeah I feel you by bully you're out and so you block him and so he sends me a personal message it says don't Piss me off Chad breath you're not that big of a deal and I'm like well you're holding on by a thread there bro for eighteen hours of your life I was a big deal yeah apparently consume you to send you a private message and funny and I get that stuff all the time so so I you have to block and then you can ban from the pages and I hate bannon people because you don't everybody involved don't people have differing opinions I want people who have different on ideas to share those ideas flag guy who came on the other day and what's his name he said he said it was unclear kind of what he was saying but I was kind of able to peace he's through it he was like I consider myself a a neoliberal and you know I'd love to debate you and I said well would not be a lot of debating because basically basically I believe neoliberalism to I'm a student of Friedrich Hayek so you might be surprised at what what you find out that I know how did he got into this big argument he the guy couldn't spell liberal though he kept spelling L. E. B. E. R. A. L. is work on that folks like if there's like if you I wonder if there's a little red underscore underneath the word when you type it out on your phone or whatever you didn't do it right that's what that means that's it means you didn't spell it right so jump on the Google and try to figure out the spelling of that word it'll correct you it's not that hard it's really not that hard to figure out how to spell something but but that's beside inside the point I still especially if that's how you identify if you identify as a neo liberal learn how to spell neo dash liberal like liberal you're not a liberal you gotta be careful when you say that because that could be like lesbian mixed with a liberal which you're a liberal I don't know we're making up words now I love this this is the beautiful thing I like like about jazz show they told me to sit up so that people could see my handsomeness t like but because of this lady you're not fat I'm not fat but I have Chunky Pants with the button saying in Saint Pants stretch pants stretchy pants or I have gained I'm getting you know I'm a I'm a I'm a stay up down up down now but I'm up but your real I've pretty much stayed up okay for a while now and I'm okay with comfortable in my own skin Dan my wife loves me that's all that matters Gerber out every day I working out every day I'm getting back to get I'm getting in the swing travels was hard stephen I know it is hard we're going to Ireland the swing it's hard stephen hard and I gotta figure out a way to sleep on that airplane because I can't I I can't either I I I have the atmos- way I have all the apnea aw sleep on the plane or asleep in general but it's bad one I it's weird because when try to fall asleep on the plane I can inhale exile it catches so after it hell really really deep and then again exiles weird so here's what I'm going to get I'm GonNa get one of those little mini CPAP have you seen those thanks shovel manure knows right they know these things are like half a pound like this and you still got put the mask Oh sure would you gonna look fantastic in first class get your apple teeny thirty to Ireland you're going to be sexy I didn't care anymore see that's that's my point I don't care anymore somebody asked me yesterday did a magazine interview Saturday someone asked me they said have you you what how do you deal with the stuff online you know when stuff comes at you in the basically the haters how do you deal with that and I'm like look here's thing you've heard me you say it over and over again I'm not apologizing for what I say I'm not apologizing for things and let me tell you why I'm not apologizing let me let me taking church for a minute first of all the idea of forgiveness is rooted in love it's rooted in love okay same as grief you can't grieve over something you don't love right so so the idea of being like if I want if I need you to forgive me if I want you to forgive me for something I've done wrong and I'm apologizing which is the essence of what apologizing is if I need you to forgive me well that's because else I love you and I want you to love me I hope you love me and so I want your forgiveness and that's why I want to do that now if there's a grown ass man out there who is by by his own volition and choice making the decision and personal responsibility to watch the things that I'm saying online on a daily basis and it's bothering him to the point that he has got to attack me and now demand that I apologize so that he can issue his forgiveness to me then I have to remind somebody and I'm doing it right now because won't do this online but I will tell you you don't love me 'cause you don't know me so why in the hell am I going to apologize for something that you arbitrarily subjected elected yourself to volition when you didn't have to do it at all nobody held a gun to your head and said watch the Chad break you did it because you wanted to do it or you came across it and you chose to linger bottom line now I'm going to say what I'm going to say and for you to want me to apologize in order to take care of your feelings or to make sure culture continues continues to like me well culture doesn't love me therefore why am I going to apologize to culture I'm not GonNa do it and I had bag who jumped on here he gets on instagram all the time and he's like Oh you know because I made this comparison Kevin Hart recently about Kevin Hart apologized on Ellen you compared yourself Kevin Hart he's got eighty million no no I didn't I'm talking about his actions I would not engage in his actions the same actions ridiculous do that wasn't comparing myself but people again they gotta gotta get on there and they got to try to make you know they got to come at you they gotta come at you don't come at me look I read my messages I see the comments I see the thanks people say you know you could say anything you want to say to me online we're public we're going to stay in the public but if you think you're going to get us and unlike hurt our feelings or something or make us feel now they're trying to create their own existence or insecurity it's a narcissistic Machiavelli Komo Kellyanne tendency to go on and be atro- like behavior in order to get attention and it's just like spanking a dog it's still attention the dog will cry all night long long known you're gonNA come in here and beat it's ask for the newspaper reminded me a funny story I can't tell but but the dogs still getting attention but do you get the same kind of message are not saying but messages from people that think that you can tell them something that will change their life like our tell you this I got a message on twitter the other day we got said Hey I wanna ask you something and I said okay what's up and he said just need to pick your brain for a second so I didn't respond again because I'm like I've already said what's up so finally took about two days hey you still

"Yesterday culturally speaking dismissed teenagers today we deify them. Both approaches are wrong the Colson Center I'm John Stonestreet. This is breakpoint last week. Before news of an impeachment inquiry stole the headlines Sixteen Year old climate activist Greta Thunberg grab top billing billing with her. How Dare you climate change speech at the United Nations in fact even before Thunberg had been declared the voice of a generation the ultra liberal church which of Sweden tweeted that Jesus had appointed her as one of his successors while I as I discussed a few times recently don't share her climate alarmism the international international beatification of Lunberg Mirror something we saw in the wake of the Parkland shooting a few years ago elevating teenage spokespersons for political causes in at least the cases of Thunberg and the Parkland victims their activism jettisoned reason discourse for Mel dramatics complete with screaming and swearing hiring and absent anything that could be considered respecting your elders and Babylon be headline parodied challenging these elevated spokespersons. This just is not allowed. I will stop at nothing to take away your constitutional rights. Their headline said Whoa Bro. Why are you attacking me. I'm just a kit. The increasing trend to block debate date with angry. Teenage shields is the next step in a culture captivated by what I call the cult of adolescence adolescence as Brett Conklin. I have written written about in our book. A practical guide to culture is a rather recent innovation in Western society. You see in most cultures throughout the history of the world kids went from being kids to being adults salt. Today they become adolescence. It's so normal we actually have come to expect kids to lose their minds during their teenage years but along the way to who additional things have happened. I people began to enter adolescence earlier and earlier and are leaving it. Later and later adolescence has expanded dramatically in fact many experts today identify adolescence as the stage of life between ages eleven and thirty and sack in adolescence has moved from being a stage age of life to being the goal of Life Long. Gone are the days when grown men and women wished to appear older and wiser. We're now a culture that wants to stay young young and free forever one that sees the good life as the ability to be adolescent as long as possible now. What does any of this have to do with Greta Thunberg and the students from Parkland won't for many people in a culture like ours chronology equals correctness beliefs and opinions of kids matter more than adults not because is there informed or accurate but simply because they're younger and a culture captivated by a call to battle essence we should do teenagers like Thunberg or the Parkland activists say hey and dismissed their tendency toward hysterics and hyperbole despite the lack of good arguments and evidence as if youth converse some kind of sainthood hood an argument immunity and fact all across our culture on both the right and left we've allowed our most important cultural conversations and debates to become adolescent adolescent like in which a motion always trumps facts some conservatives have reacted by telling Greta and other teenage activists to sit down and shut up one popular podcast told his audience he has no interest in the political opinions of sixteen year olds because they couldn't possibly know anything of value. Are You well. This is equally misguided. You see the core problem with the call to battle essence is that we are penalizing young image bearers with low expectations. We do this whenever we elevate teen spokespersons without requiring them to know what they're talking about. We also do this when we say that. Teenagers can't know what they're talking talking about. Both approaches mistakenly assume this mythological period of live called adolescents actually exist a time when young people can't be expected expected to know or to act like grown-ups and our book a practical guide to Culture Brett Conklin. I debunked the myth of adolescence. Young adults should champion big ideas ideas and important causes and in the process they should expect to encounter and be ready to answer opposing arguments something they're fully capable of doing see one of the best things we can do for young adults is to respect them enough to expect more of them and of ourselves for breakpoint.

"Greta Tonsberg who is the sixteen year old Swedish Swedish child who spoke to the UN spoke nice she kinda yelled at the UN but you know what they deserved it if you think of the UN as the collective will of the nations and leaders of the world on on the show in the past. I've likened her to an Old Testament Prophet. She's actually strains of the Bible. She's both Jeremiah and the children's Crusade. I've been thinking a lot about her. So has everyone that's the extent that she's arrested the conversation and joining me now is Katie letter writes about the environment and other issues as a columnist for and plus one but Katie sits at these great cross-currents of literature and environmentalism and parenting and taught a course of Columbia about the literature of environmentalism and she's written about Greta. Thanks for coming in Katie. Thank you so much for having me. Have you have had you seen. Greta talk in that way before because I know you've been following her career meteoric rise. Thou is definitely the most angry I've seen her. I was trying to figure that out because when I watched the speech initially I was a little bit shocked. I am a fan of her delivery it was a little intense but I have to say I kept watching the speeches teaches that followed and as I said on on twitter she kinda poured acid on those speeches and much like an industrial polluter might mike well it. Did it did what I think she wanted it to do. That kind of came around so is that I mean. You can't look away. There's something about this compelling extremely well-spoken extremely passionate girl saying these things embodying the cost of our environmental told decline. Are there any risks I mean. I've been reading some people. I don't know if they are of goodwill but they think they're making fair point saying if she becomes the face of the movement the movement movement could be in fact harming itself. She's so scorched earth. I feel like what Greta turned. Berg kind of gets at is that we have been for thirty years. Intelligent people have been discussing. I mean their entire think-tanks around how to communicate about climate change right and there's going to be an official role or a group using every mode so you know extinction rebellion is more than maybe what she you know that tone that she has but you have like NRDC. Doing we know more friendly tone. Yes worked and when I spoke to Al Gore. He said you know the key. Is You gotta give people hope that's how that's how his the second iteration in of the documentary and it's all about hope and there's a lot of research and scholarship hopes really important without hope you're not. GonNa Change and then she says in the speech I should like in school on the other side of the ocean yet. You all come to US young people for hope. How dare you will so oh. I feel like the I don't WanNa say charm. That's not quite the right word but the effectiveness of her one whatever's been done has not worked worked for thirty years okay so that's like a starting point. She's trying whatever she's trying. She's trying what she's comfortable with. You know she went out there in front of Swedish parliament on on her own and her and held her sign communicated the way she communicates for whatever reason right that has incredibly ignited ignited so it's sort of a chicken egg thing yes maybe for some people hope is the way maybe for some people pessimism is the way maybe for some people like honesty or what they see as honesty is the way but for whatever reason her way which I like she just started with her way galvanized a very large group of people did you see the piece of video that went viral of her standing there in the UN and then Donald Trump walks by my theory is this is entirely a Rohrschack test because she had this stern look on her face and then the camera moves so let's examine the the syntax of that video moment through camera moves we see trump but again. I think she looks like that all the time and if anyone in the world had walked in the frame she'd still look like that its interests since I was a little unsure how to feel about that viral clip because I think this is not hopefully a political comment per se but it seems like our president enjoys the spotlight. It felt like he was getting in on that a little bit. I'm sure I assume he didn't do that on purpose but president used to be on reality. TV show it concerns me when the framing is a feud when he's in right so obviously it gave her more exposure but I was a little uneasy. I think that if you cut that video with different kinds of music like if you put the curb your enthusiasm theme to it wouldn't mean something bad. If you put the extra system to it. It would mean something else yeah I wasn't. I'm still not sure we'll see you back to the idea of hope kate man and I hope I'm pronouncing her name right. Who is a writer and philosopher at Cornell L. wrote about the the. How dare had their you ask us for hope? She said giving hope whatever the grim truth of the matter is is a feminine coded. Sue obligation that is far too seldom questioned good for Greta ton. Berg as usual for resisting and my comment was she resisting it or does do social niceties just not occur to her that I say the ladder She's welcome to interpret Br dot under her rubric or any of US but yeah. I don't think she's I mean she might be. I don't know you know who am I to say but you know I definitely definitely I don't necessarily push back. Maybe except for the viral clip with the feud with President trump. She's out there in the public sphere so if people wanna read things into her or sort of platform her fine personally. I'm just like just don't personalize it in a way that's toxic right or abusive right in good faith. I agree with that and not only in this instance this but as a guiding principle for all interactions you said and also I do think that there is something to her appeal. That is if you you want interpreted this way you can if you can't. She is not an empty vessel because she has a lot of facts and she presents well but she does offer people the opportunity to do do that because the clarity of the message is not a lot of other things to get caught up in maybe with there. Is You know she's a politician got to be working. A bunch of different angles so credit is this very clear voice says this very clear thing and doesn't really go outside that clear thing like you said she doesn't even plans. He doesn't endorse politicians so she becomes he comes a little bit of a Rohrschack test or something that you could put your own interpretations into and it's useful. I think probably yeah I mean I think in the activists community Munity the advocacy community the media community particularly you know in this era. A lot depends on your theory of change. How how do you think society changes right and again. I think she's a catalyst for a certain kind of change or a certain group of people and what I appreciate about her as maybe a little bit of a wonky cash climate person. Is that message you know. She says the main solution however over is so simple that even a small child can understand it. We have to stop the emissions of greenhouse gases. She just sort of gets to the basics over and over very basic basic obviously off. Also a presentation is very basic so whoever she galvanizes Godspeed and I don't know how much there's a counter government is. I don't know how much she galvanizes. People who don't want to reduce emission who have some vested interest and the status quo that might not be so great long term. I don't know so there's always that consideration. Would you think the most compelling theory of changes. Oh that's I mean the jury is out and I get very confused to be honest. I look like the green new deal is confused. Yeah what's very confusing to me. I read this Paul Krugman up he called it a Christmas tree and talking about how politically it to me it sort of a heart the green new deal again. It's salient I certain group of people it uses the key words that row them up. It has proposals that certain people are really into and it works for them again again. I always wonder does that. Create a counter a fact counter galvanisation personally. You know if I were I would not be probably a good politician because I don't. I'm not so good at that kind of Christmas tree theory of change. That's kind of this big speech. You know exciting slogans and again not to denigrate for some people that really works for some people. That's their skill and talent so I don't see I think about it a lot. I don't know what really works. Sometimes it might just be something really horrible like a war yeah the horrible environmental degradation yeah. I mean personally I've looked at some of the proposals either in or associated associated with the green new deal and just my training as journalists and the way I navigate the world I say that's none of the experts say that's going to be possible and so it makes me a little suspicious resentful of the way some people would say it's overton window opens that would say I personally reject that theory of change does does that theory of change work for other people people who advocate for the overton window or the people who really most often want the most extreme policies right it happens to fit in exactly exactly with what they want right there so then they have the fallback plan. Look I want us to totally one hundred percent eliminate. Go Two net zero emissions by twenty thirty the green a new deal doesn't have that level of realism's makes me question it someone who's who buys into the OVERTON window theory of change. We'll say well. What's the problem. The worst case scenario is we. We try to do it and almost get there. I don't know I think the question their credibility and be I worry that might that might turn people off who'd otherwise be on board and then a lot of the other programs which understand their point if we don't have if if if green jobs aren't at good wages it's not gonna work as well as if they are and you say okay so instead of one big ask on the environment now you're asking for a big ask on the environment and for unions and for housing. It gets harder to pass yeah. I mean it's tough. I you know obviously geniuses think about this all day long like Nobel winners think about this all day long you know and I feel like I'll try to look at it with credit dern. Berg as land you know look at some of these theories to try to figure out my interpretation of what she's doing that even that's very personal so katy lederer writes about climate and other things for an plus one. She writes for The New York Times shreds for herself. She writes for Humanity Katie coming in. Thank you so much..

"greta thunberg" Discussed on Slate's The Gist

"President of the United States offers his meandering adult untruthful defense of his misbehavior. The news media has traditionally said well it might be deceitful confusing propagandistic lies but it is from the president of the United States but not yesterday. NBC turned it off explaining yeah we do this really but the president is telling the truth these allegations against Joe Biden and hunter mine. He's repeating have been investigated by the Ukrainian on the Wall Street. Journal included in their report on Friday. The Ukrainians view this issue having been investigated in adjudicate and what's amazing is that what appears to be trying to do is to turn his own impeachment into a big deflection that is what he was doing yet et by not covering the lies and deceit in strange implausible utterances of the president. NBC was denying their viewers. The fact that the president is lying and deceit fall and implausible apparently they think the president well president specifically should be covered something like a car chase or a hostage standoff off you put on a seven or fourteen second delay in this way you could bail out the moment before it gets too gruesome but like most high speed car chases on TV. There is is another alternative. You're ready. Don't feel compelled to go live at all but you should be paying attention because he can and will say something strange range which might either be newsworthy or just yet another insight into that oatmeal brain of his so yesterday at the United Nations and I went and watched the whole thing he he gave a defense. If you WANNA call it that gigantic lie if you want to call it that of his behavior during the whole Ukraine affair and at one point joint the woebegone president said this so many leaders came up to me today and they said Sir what you go through a No president has ever gone through and it's so bad for your country okay press conference. UN At other times in the press conference talking about meetings he had with heads of state so when he said leaders I assumed and he meant world leaders the why would a world leader call another President Sir. That doesn't scan anyway maybe because they weren't world leaders. Maybe maybe the kind of leaders he had in mind to our talk radio leaders but it's so bad for our country people have said had rush limbaugh great man. Sean Hannity said it a lot of people said it Mark Levin and because the networks bailed out we he missed that Donald Trump's endorsement by Mark Levin who knows what in Culpa Tori or inane thing he will admit you next so I've got to ask are the networks by playing his speech is giving him a platform or is it more of a scaffold on the show today it is a full analysis of the director of the denies appearance before Congress. It was notable. There was a tone of how dare you there was an answer. It's rough. I was just doing what I thought was right and I do think when this whole thing plays out over the next months or years today will be the kind of day that move the ball but won't be remembered but I I want to get into the nitty gritty in fine detail and that'll be on the spiel but I you probably saw or at least heard news of Greta Tonsberg the Swedish I girl who spoke at the United Nations fire much like the Amazon she was slash and burn like the form of agriculture currently consuming Borneo and Sumatra. I find and Greta compelling. My son told me that during the school walkout he went and saw Greta. I said Greta first name basis sit Greta. I think our communication in style tells us something about the moment wherein it's not exactly sure what so I asked Katy Lederer who has written about Greta Tonsberg and her critics as for the Journal n Plus One Katie joins me next.

I don't know it's like a cult folks this is a bizarre way to explain this this is just. it borders it borders on child abuse and obscene if you ask me. because we know but we know the walls like a man in ten years we know was not given twelve it's not good it hasn't ended in how many hundreds of thousands of years it's not going to end in fifty. life is not gonna be wiped out these people know this and yet they tell these young kids this stuff anyway to create these armies of the running around. now blaming parents and blaming grandparents to suffer it's just hideous. so yeah you all hang on we'll get to yeah let's go another somebody can trump great speech today at the U. N.. he again told them this is a staple every time he goes to a G. twenty MG seven a G. eight or the U. when he reminds them of this as we rebuild the unrivaled might of the American military we are also revitalizing our alliances by making it very clear that all of our partners are expected to pay their fair share of the tremendous defense burden which the United States has born in the past year and why half way well because his super power we can and we sure yeah we're stronger and this is how we prove we don't intend to harm me we'll let you. kind of pick pockets. our treasury yeah yeah yeah that's not that's not we show you that that we intend you no harm or whatever. allow people to use us we've allowed people to take us for granted we really have. trump doesn't like it has put an end to join a also blasted the giant calms. and blamed the pull of globalism which he called almost a religious like thing for the appeasing of China all these years listen to this the second largest economy.
