Fresh update on "harari" discussed on Stars Like Us: Astrology with Aliza Kelly
"Least moving that way and so i'm really excited. About the protests we saw in twenty charming most of them and otherwise how people are saying away. We don't have to do it this way anymore. No don't and let's talk about and think about and then take action on what we want to do. Records money twenty one and certainly on forward and i think a straw gene right because we can do it for a a usa as we're talking about in this conversation we can do for you certainly new york city and we can do for planned parenthood. We can do it for to call a organizations letter but the one that got booted out of new york state and going are we. There can be a lot there. Yeah and. I think that you know for our younger listeners. I have observed. You know this incredible rise of hellenistic astrology traditional astrology to me. It's like makes a lot of sense that in a time when we really did not have a lot of guidance That we would look to these very ancient techniques that have are very entrenched in rules. I generally do not like rules at all. You know so. I have sort of. It's fun and interesting to kind of observe us talk about progressive major transformation and then also these very sort of this ancient antiquated language surrounding astrology of sex and diurnal charts and you know all of this very technical stuff and there's a really interesting duality and pension there where the astrology in a way is almost more traditional than it's ever been at least as i'm seeing on sort of like twitter on the twitter space but then the the The demands and the language. And what we're looking for at large is most progressive than i've ever seen. You know more sort of drawing attention to lack of diversity drawing attention to who's sitting on these boards. What are these organizations doing. How are we advancing and the astrology is two thousand years old. You know and. I find that to be such an interesting. It's just this this bifurcation. That's fascinating to me And then it sort of holds reflects the mirror back myself. Who you know. I stopped practicing. Harari astrology. Because i just didn't like all the fucking rules you know. I didn't like having to feel so. Structured and limited in an interpretation and what is the antithesis to that. You know i feel very i guess. My pisces moon here has really fluid and wanting to you know. I want to go where we need to go and for younger listeners. I guess the big circle back here. Point as explore all of it you know explore veda castaldi explore ideal charts explore holstein explore explore plazas explore all of it. Embrace things discover have conversations. There's no need especially because we are having these conversations about why things are the way they are that we also can't deconstruct astrology as we are doing. So why is anything. The way it fucking is you know. Why is the son. Have any of the attributes that has their choices. It's all man-made you know it's all constructions of what we see society to be at any given point so if we're changing the rules in this way we ought to change. We ought to at least explore what it means to change It always you know what about astrology. What if we flip the zodiac started at pisces and went backwards. Who the fuck cares. Why not let's have fun with it and keep things interesting because that's what we need. That's what we're holding everyone accountable for now. We also need to make sure that we are becoming sort of. And i guess this is kind of the aquarius fixed energy right where it's so progressive but at the same time I don't know i. I'm not this. I'm fixed on this. This is not budging and that is the it just. It's a fascinating pushing. Pull to me. I love that how you said that. I got a.

He mentioned sapient specifically the part about how we did not domesticate wheat. It domesticated us as humans. The whole concept in how harari argues in in the book. And i was like wait.

Here's a random tidbit but you've never ever thought about before. That kind of encouraged me a bit more to read it. I started this pre cova. Did we had emissions to get this on recorded in march. I believe and than yeah we really. There's that's not happening so we changed our schedule. Way bumped this look back. And i've had all the time in the world to read it but i did read the last three chapters today alan swimmer. I'm out overall. I found it really interesting. I have shared multiple times on this podcast. I grew up More conservative christian background very very much influenced by like young Ideas evolution was vaguely taught at the christian. School attended as like. That's one theory moving on now. Children not really given much credence to so reading books. Like this so much what you were saying about how it aided your deconstruction process. It was really. It's not the first book that has you know. Ideas pollution We woven into them to be foundational about like where we come from as a human species being very contrary or very different than the the ways i was taught growing up Made it really interesting at times uncomfortable. Even though like i don't fully scribe to a lot of like. I don't believe young earth anymore but even just like the reading a book that From harare perspective. At times. I was like i feel uncomfortable. Why am i comfortable like. Oh this is something. That maybe i don't ascribe to anymore but it's like ingrained into my psyche of how originally thought of the world and so By emotional brain is telling you this bad bad things. Will you consume this. Maybe not fabric just like. We're gonna be really skeptical. Mcguire having skeptical. Who is this like a healthy skepticism. Or this is like a lot. shut it down.

"It's dangerous but we can't stay behind in this arms race and it's the ceo. Is things like genetic engineering in the us on genetic engineering. You should meddle with the human dna engineering super babies. But if the chinese are doing it and they're getting results than very soon the americans will feel. We have to do it all so we don't want to because we have to do it otherwise we will stay behind and maybe the chinese are feeling the same thing. We also don't want to do it. But we can't stay behind if the russians or the americans are doing it. So the only way to effectively regulate these disruptive technology is by having some kind of global corporation. And you know it's not impossible. People can agree. You know you take for instance the olympics. You think about sports then on the one hand. The olympics is a nationalist competition. Everybody go and waved the flags and how many medals we have and how many medals the russians have and cheer for your national team but at the same time all based on global corporation. Because if you want to compete against the russians in swimming or in whatever you i have to agree on the same rules for the game and the amazing thing. Is you manage to do it. You know athletes from the us. From russia from all over the world can come together. The same place agree on exactly the same rules and this kind of model that you still have your national loyalties. You don't cheer for the russian athletes but nevertheless having agreement about the common basic rules and again back to your previous point and we got to have a couple of institutions that we trust so that when there is a negative or a positive drug test that institutions trusted and believed because people do cheat but again they by these systems they get caught by journalists. They get caught by committees that test that we trust exactly if we don't have these institutions that everybody respects then very soon the olympics and actually every sport would become a competition between biochemists and between.

"It's a process in the body the same system that can tell you you have covid can also tell your angry. So najan north korea in ten twenty years when the regime knows what you feel every moment of the day about the leader about the lied about anything. Then as you point out with dictators know that they get rid of people that don't agree with them yes but no. It's difficult for the dictator to know what you really think. Dictators usually surrounded by. Yes men even. If have the dictator. You are a very good actor you act as if you really like him or her usually talk with this technology the dictator can go under your skin and you know this is worse than anything we've seen in human history so far and it's just north korea it can happen in other countries it can also happen you know even with corporations. It's not just governments if you take entertainment industry. The number one thing like net flakes or apple tv or everybody wants to know is not only what you watch. They want to know how you feel about what you watch. And let's say for example that you're watching you show and whenever the lead character appears your interest goes down but whenever a some minor character appears you suddenly become very engaged. Today the producers have no way of knowing that but in ten years if you were this biometric bracelet why watching the television or maybe just television watching you analyzing your facial expression they know. Next morning they pick up the phone. Get rid of the lead character. People don't like very much and let's move the show to focus on this minor character that everybody's really keen on. Yeah you just spelled the end of my acting career. I think not necessarily this kind of ability to go under the skin of people and know what they actually feel. This is the holy grail. Everybody wants the dictators. The democratic leaders the corporations and now for the first time in history. There is the technology to actually do it. You know you have these conspiracy theories that somebody wants to implant chips inside our bodies to monitor. The funny thing is your way late. You don't need to implant people with chips any longer. You're holding the chip. I can tell you every where you've been in the last ten years and even if you get rid of your smartphone now you can just analyze people's facial expression so you know how do i know what you feel. Now i'm looking at you. And i analyze the tiny changes in your facial expression in your eyes in your mouth. I also listen to your voice. And i.

"Hey nice to meet you again. Are you in israel. I assume yes. We are in israel. It's quite difficult to get in and out of the country these days. We're in tel aviv at our office. And is it hard because people don't wanna let you in or you're not allowed to leave. You are allowed to leave. But most countries are not very keen on having israelis at the moment because we were red country. And also when you come back you often have to be in quarantine you can fly to the. Us no problem. I mean they don't care about anything. Most countries are in a bit more careful than the americans. I just read an article that you had written about. And we'll explore it in detail. But you were a little critical of netanyahu policy about surveillance during covid. I immediately got curious. If you could give countries out of ten score of how free they are to criticize the current regime. What would you give israel. And what would you give us. So i have some sense of how safe you are. It depends what kind of criticism you level at the government. I mean there are some things that are kind of almost taboo but the social political tabu with regard to saying things about netanyahu and government. You can basically say anything you want okay. That's nice so you give yourself like a nine again in terms of criticism of calling the prime minister corrupt and criminal and whatever you can say that at least for now the nobody will arrest you in the middle of the night. Well i think i read. We had a guest on who explained this ranking i think. Ibm created because they had satellite businesses. All over the world it was kind of detailed in one of the malcolm gladwin books that israel is one of the only countries that has less fear of authority than americans. You guys are like the apex of that right. This is part of israeli culture. I see it in the university. There are no students like israeli students for good and for bed. Like i would give them an assignment to read for next week. They will come to the next class. They will openly say. I didn't read the who of the article. But i think they are wrong. If you say something like this and they disagree they have no respect for your authority as a whatsoever which it sounds is make life a bit difficult but for me. It was a great learning experience. Because if you say nonsense you will immediately be told so it really makes you kind of check yourself and also there are nevertheless things in israel's certain things related to israeli palestinian relations to the occupation to the army that say them they won't go to jail perhaps but the social reaction would be very very severe. Almost every society has these kinds of red lines. Somewhere and in israel there are certain things to boo. Okay so. I get immediately curious. Because as i try to assess our response to covid and i think it's probably well known around the world. We have a pretty significant faction of people that are against the mask in to them. What that represents a lack of freedom and choice and these principles that they value and so at first i look at the data and we're one of the worst in the world. I'm embarrassed i like. Oh my god of all the places. We have access to the most education technology. Everything so i i. I'm embarrassed and disappointed..

But today i am joined once again by science writer editor and dear friend seriously. Corey us powell. Greetings corey greetings. Bill as always a pleasure to be here with you a pleasure to have a chance to sit back and think about things you know here we are in the midst of this covid pandemic. what's been going on for quite a while and people talk a lot about all. These people are not wearing masks and all this resistance but to me one of the most striking things is how compliant people been how cooperative have been. I'm walking my neighborhood and it's a good. These ninety percent of the people are being very responsible in distancing wearing masks. You think about how hard it is to get ninety percent of people to agree about anything and yet here we are. We're acting in this. Very responsible. Collective behavior the troublemakers. And the people who are giving pushback. They get a lot of attention in part because there outliers they make a lot of noise there you know. They caused a lot of agony. But this is relatively small portion of the population and it reminded me of this interview. I did with primatology. Bronze to wall a while back and i was asking him about. Why is human nature so violent and you know he studies bonobos pygmy chimpanzees and he laughed. He said look. You're talking to me from new york city. They're eight million people living in close proximity there. If you put eight million chimpanzees together in the same place it be pandemonium it would be a disaster and yet new york really quite peacefully. The question is not wire humans violent. The question is why are human so peaceful so that really got me thinking and it got me excited about today's episode. Yes yes. Today is none other the doctor. You've all know a harari. His a historian philosopher and author of the new york times mega bests hours sapiens. A brief history of humankind homo a brief history of tomorrow and most recently sapiens. A graphic history. There's a graphic novel version of his ideas. So dr yuval harari. Welcome to science rules. may i call you all. Certainly. i'm very happy to be here when you start sapiens. you say there's three revolutions. The first one i find especially enchanting the three big ones out the collective revolution about seventy thousand years ago. Then you have the controversy pollution ten thousand years ago and scientific revolution which is really just beginning. I mean again. Five hundred years ago but that's nothing in terms of human history so the company could prove aleutian is on about storytelling to make a long story. Short it's really all about storytelling. We control this planet and not the chimpanzees not the elephants not even the neanderthals because we can cooperating much larger numbers than any other animal and we can do that first and foremost because of our ability to invent and believe fictional stories. If you look at any large scale human corporation you'll always find at the basis some story wages longest everybody believes everybody cooperates and follows the same rules the same lows. It's most obvious in the case of religion that that's easy but the interesting thing is economic systems are based on fictional stories. Just like religions. I get what you mean. I believe by stories but the idea that what corporations do or what motivates them is fiction is somehow prove ably not true. It's not what motivates them. It's what they are. Corporations are not a biological or physical entity. The only place is exists is in our show imagination. He's in the stories. We believe we have these powerful costs of storytellers tens of thousands of years ago. You had the shamans telling stories about spirits. Then you had priests telling stories. About god's way the modern world we have lawyers corporate lawyers telling stories about corporations but it's really the same thing if everybody stops believing in it disappears and in the case even more clearly in the case of money. Maybe the greatest story told if everybody or even say eighty percent of people stop believing in the dollar disappeared. It has no value whatsoever. I mean most dollars are not even pieces of paper. They'll just electronic data when you hear today that the federal reserve bank has created during this crisis trillions of dollars. They don't even bother to bring them anymore. It's they just enter some computer file and zero somewhere and poof. You have a trillion dollars appearing out of nowhere. Tell us about the cognitive revolution. What happened when this is when people could create stories and believe in them right. This is when something happened. We don't understand what which enabled our species of humans homo sapiens. At the time there were at least five other human species we used to being the only humans around but seventy thousand years ago. There were at least six different human species. The most famous apart for us are of course neanderthals until then sapiens homo sapiens does not seem to be superior to undertows all to the other human species sapiens They leave a we leave in africa and then we spread from there and push to extinction all the other human species and many of other big animals of the world and take over the planets and what the neighbors to do. It is a sudden ability to cooperate far more effectively large numbers neanderthals which were as powerful as physically and have bigger brains than homo sapiens. But they could cooperate. Only in small bands twenty fourteen. Maybe eight hundred dollars could.

Did People born in the twentieth century for people born deep into the twenty first century? That's not science fiction for his. that. He says is how he and his friends think. So four years maybe changes the way that I think about that interview with Harari and I think about home address book that I loved at the time and still love and still recommend. It's an Amazing Book and Harari is among other things, a truly amazing writer. But at the risk of repeating myself I'm increasingly weather. How people of my age respond to these things is so different. To how people thirty years younger respond to these things. That full years for me? Maybe it doesn't seem like a long time. Before years is a long time. If you're twenty one. Over the summer we will replay a few other podcast episodes the ones that we think. A, definitely worth listening to again in two thousand and twenty. The next week we're going to be talking to Diane coyle about economics of the pandemic.

"Climate change doesn't feel like. Hey, it's close to being solved obey! It's close to being solved by machines. Solution ISM that Silicon Valley doctrine. That political problems are resolvable if you can de-politicize them an mechanize them. A lot of people still believe it. A lot of people in Silicon Valley are absolutely sold on it. But the last four years have given us. I think almost no evidence that it's coming anytime soon. I've never really believed in solution ISM at any I believed in two thousand, sixteen, atoning I believe in it and twenty twenty. One less reason why I think I'm possibly more skeptical now than I was four years ago. In interview, we took out Human Agency and you've Oh Harare's conviction that the digital revolution, and then what's to follow? Spells a kind of death for human agency. Because the liberal assumption about the individual and the capacity of the individual human, being to make the crucial judgements value judgments judgments of conscience. That is about to be taken away by machines that lack conscience that lack consciousness, and will make those decisions regardless of who we think we are as individuals. Human Agency is. About to lose out to form of artificial agency. I think that may be true but I. Don't think it's true in the way that Harari believes that is, we're not about to lose out our agency to the agency of machines. The most striking fact about the world now compared to four years ago for me is not the increased power of the machines. Is the increased power of the people and the corporations who build and own the machines. There is another threat to human agency. And? That's the threat that comes from the agency. This possessed by corporations, vast often monopolistic corporations of almost unimaginable wealth, and sometimes of unaccountable Paulo. Other machines Jeff bezos builds an owns more powerful than they were four years ago. Yes, absolutely, and he's made his money in part by moving out of the book setting business. And moving into the cloud business. But I think more striking than that is. How much more powerful Jeff Bezos says than he was four years ago. How much richer but a bubble? How much more powerful Amazon is than? It was four years ago. How much more powerful FACEBOOK is than? It was four years ago and by facebook. I don't mean so much facebook. The network I don't mean facebook the technology. I mean facebook the corporation. This is something we've talked about quite a lot on talking politics the last four years. On this problem still seems to me to be central. Human. Agency is not just under threat from machines. Human Agency is also under threat as it has been for hundreds of years. By the artificial agency of corporate power and indeed state power, there's other kinds of machines that we built to make our world better and make our lives more convenient and safer. More prosperous. Those machines also have a kind of power that transcends what humans capable of. And From Two Thousand Sixteen Twenty twenty. The the unaccountable power of corporations, the power, the supposedly accountable, but in many ways unaccountable power of states of Donald Trump's America A- Boris Johnson's Britain. Of Zhejiang, Ping's China Those threats to human agency are not new that a story that is hundreds of years old. That's the way does not begin with the digital revolution, the digital revolution may of turbocharged. What corporate agency does to Human Agency. For the digital revolution did not invent it. Having, said all that I was talking to my son, who's twenty one years old recently, and he has just read home address for the first time, so he didn't read it. In Twenty Sixteen before Donald Trump was president. He wrote in two thousand and twenty. In what may be the last year of Donald Trump's presidency and he told he thinks that is a remarkably prescient book. One of the reasons that he thinks it's prescient as you'd also just been reading. Dominic Cummings is blog. And in some of those blog posts, Cummings talks without referencing Harari a kind of Harari language about the coming of machines with the ability to do what he calls counterfactual thinking. The ability of machines much more completely than human beings. To think of imagine scenarios and possible hypothetical alternatives to the world that we now in and flesh them out. Cummings believes that as a future and that matters perhaps more even than Harari believing in as a future because cummings has political power. And there is something to be said for the fact that Harare's vision of the future whether you buy it or not has been bought into by some very powerful political actors, not just tech giant's in Silicon Valley. There is an increasing presence of Harare style thinking about what machines can do if machines can be allowed free rein to speculate about the future. Inside Goldman. And at the moment Pha now at least the British government is dominated. By someone who thinks like that? So when my son read this book. He didn't think rowboats. He thought Dominic Cummings. and. He also said to me when I asked him what it was about this book the resonated with him. That it spoke to his generation. People say under the age of twenty five. The when Harari talks about the thought. That the human race is coming to a kind of end state that we should be thinking about what the end of the story of Homo sapiens looks like. If you're my age. That sounds like science fiction, and if you're my son's age thinking about a life that may for him have eighteen hundred years in it..

"Which means that the big decisions will be taken, either by nobody by market forces all they will be taken by a very small group of individuals in places like Silicon Valley who nobody voted for, and they represent nobody and they don't really have a kind of political commitment of the kind. You even find in the Communist Party in China or in movies, people like Putin ed one. So far I must say that most of the decisions taking by the GEEKS in silicon. Valley has proven themselves to be quite good I mean. We could have done much much worse, but still it's dangerous to put the future, not really only of humanity. It's really the future of life. I mean the rise of artificial intelligence is going to change things, not their historical level, but really on the biological level after four billion years of evolution of organic beings for the first time life is about to break out into the inorganic room, and we'll start seeing inorganic life forms, and the people taking the decisions about it. You know bunch of engineers in in silicon. Valley, so this is a frightening thought. One thing that has definitely changed in the four years since we recorded that interview is that Yuval Harari has become a lot more famous. He was pretty famous back then sapiens. His first book was already an international bestseller. Homogeneous was about to become not quite as big a book. But a book with just as big an impact. But in the full year, since he has turned into a global intellectual superstar. And a kind of one person industry and ideas industry. I tried to get him back on talking politics for this episode, so he could reflect. On what a difference! Full years had made to his arguments, but he is in a lot of demand. He has been in huge demand since the start of the pandemic. And so he wasn't able to do it. I am still hopeful that one day we'll get him back. But in his absence, I was thinking about some of the things that he said back then. And whether they all still ring true. I think some of it has changed in the original version of this interview when we broadcast in twenty, sixteen. I introduced by saying that many people I knew in a town like Cambridge attack town. Full of computer engineers who are designing the technology of the future. There is quite a lot of skepticism. About the argument that machine intelligence is on the verge of exploding into something that will leave human intelligence behind. In the full year since I would say if anything that skepticism has grown so Harari seems pretty sold on the idea. that. We've already passed the point of no return. Where Machine Intelligence Separated out from human consciousness. Is simply going to explode exponentially and human intelligence, and could to human consciousness won't be able to keep up. Well in the four years, since there hasn't been a huge advance in machine intelligence, there have been some remarkable successes particularly in the field of game playing the kind of successes that have been achieved. By computers playing, go and poker and chester level in a human being has ever imagined. But more broad triumphs have machine intelligence actually quite hard to find. Machines are more and more a part of our lives. They're integrated in our lives and in our consciousness. But, they're not massively smarter than they were four years ago. They have hugely more capacity in some areas and machine, learning or deep learning as it's called. has taken machines to places where human beings Congo simply because of scale and power. And depth. That is depth of data analysis, but depth of intelligence. That still seems quite remote. I'm not sure that the full years since we recorded that interview has settled the case and if anything, I think there are even more reasons to doubt. The machines can do some of the basic things that we associate with intelligence. At least they're going to be able to do it soon. Machines still struggle with language. Machines still struggle with creative thought. Machines definitely still struggle with even the basics of what we would think of as human imagination. And Twenty twenty. It's not clear. The machine intelligence is about to leave us, behind. Elsa found myself thinking about an interview that we recorded on talking politics with Brett Freshman talking about his book, reengineering humanity. In which he makes the case that we should be much more worried about unintelligent machines, the intelligent machines. That is the machines that are permeating our lives and not particularly smart. They. Often had extraordinary capacities in particular areas, but they one dimensional. They can do things that we can't, and they can do things much quicker than we can. But they can't do. What's called General Intelligence. And living in a world that's increasingly dominated by those narrow specific task oriented machines, would that inability to process any form of complex language? Is Changing us. It's not that the machines becoming smarter. Is that we possibly becoming less intelligent as we adapt to a world in which those kinds of machines? Increasingly dominate our day to day lives? And that does seem to me still to be a serious risk. The before the machines become a lot smarter than us. We become a lot more like the less small Sheen's. There is a kind of assumption in Harare. was saying in that interview that we will also on the cusp of a sort of machine takeover problem-solving. The machines because of their extraordinary capacities that processing ability. We're going to quite soon be able to solve problems that were beyond human capacity to solve. Maybe including climate change global problems, the sorts of problems that we think of as being essentially political could be taken out to the domain of politics and somehow. A next to and then resolved by the domain of machines. Loss for years. That also seems if anything more remote, less.

"We recorded it in our usual space, but in a college room and a paneled room with portrait of dead white men on the wolves. It was after brexit. This is September twenty sixteen, but it was before the election of Donald trump trump was the republican nominee, but he was by no means at that point. Win The presidency. Though when you listen to this interview, it is striking that we both seem to somehow assume. That, maybe he is going to win. Certainly, we seem to talk about trump rather than Clinton as though trump with a future. A of what you've Harari says in this interview still seems to me to be very different now in twenty twenty. Some of it is pretty prescient. Some of it may be less, so it may even be the after full years. Some of these arguments dated a bit. I'm going to say a little bit about that at the end. We started our conversation with a question about the fundamental distinction that he makes in his book homogeneous. The distinction between intelligence and consciousness. In human beings and other animals, consciousness and intelligence go together to such an extent that many people think about them as the same thing, but there are actually quite different intelligence basically is the ability to solve problems, whereas consciousness is the ability to feel things to have feelings, emotions, subjective experiences now in the case of humans, we use our feelings in order to solve problems. Our intelligence to a large extent is emotional intelligence, but it doesn't have to be like that. And in the case of computers and artificial intelligence, what we're seeing is amazing progress as far as intelligence goes without any progress whatsoever in consciousness. If you think about the development of computers, since the nineteen forties and fifties, so there has been immense development intelligence, but exactly zero development in consciousness. The first computer was in the nineteen forties, had absolutely no consciousness and the most advanced computers today have also no consciousness whatsoever. They can beat you at chess. The game of go drive a car or whatever, but they don't feel any joy any fear any hope. What this means is that whereas the evolution of organic beings relied on this coupling of consciousness and intelligence, now we are seeing in a very different kinds of entities, highly intelligence, but non conscious artificial intelligence algorithms. And the big question this poses is what is really more important more important for the economic system for the political system for the military. What do they need to? They need consciousness or intelligence. Until today, this was a theoretical question that may be interested some philosophers, but it had no practical implications. Now it is becoming a practical question and the frightening thing to realize. Is that for the system? System for the economic and military system, consciousness is irrelevant, the just need intelligence. The army needs a system that is able to identify terrorists and kill them. The economy needs a taxi that can take you from point a to point. B. As efficiently and as cheaply as possible if it can do it without any feelings very well. So, what does that mean for us than the people who are still? Together with intelligence and consciousness coupled because one of the claims you making your book. Is that one of these things? These machines can know about US intelligence, but without any feeling they didn't. CARE is about our own consciousness. They can know things about our desires our once from our habits, so what does the implication of having machines that are super intelligent, but without feelings for people who have feelings? To potentially -cations first of all that if these machines in did become more intelligent than us at least in political fields, they will push humans out of the job market, and we might see in the twenty first century, the creation of a huge new class, the useless kloss, billions of people devoid of any economic usefulness, and therefore also devoid of political importance, just as the industrial revolution in the nineteenth century, created the urban working class, the proletariat and much of the social and political history of the nine hundred twentieth century revolved around this class, so the new important class of the twenty first century may be the useless class. This is the first implication. The second implication is that institutions or mechanisms like democratic elections and free market economics might become obsolete. Once you have an External Algorithm that understands you and your feelings and desires better than you understand yourself. In humanist politics and economics, the feelings of the individuals of the highest authority so is nothing beyond that the voter knows best. The customer is always right, but if the Amazon Algorithm knows my feelings better than me, then it becomes an authority higher than the voter higher than the customer. If. You think about the US elections coming us. Elections in November I. Don't know if it's happening in practice, but theoretically facebook has the data to decide the elections I mean such elections usually decided by the swing voters and facebook I think if it wants can know who are the fifty thousand voters that still haven't made up their mind whether they want to vote Republican, Democrat or stay tone, and also facebook in principle has the data to know what Donald Trump or hillary? Clinton needs to say to do in order to swing those votes in their favor even more interestingly at present in democratic elections. We've privileged the feelings of the voters on a particular day the day of elections and very often people have certain political views for maybe three and a half years, and then in the few weeks before the elections, all kinds of candles and all kinds of spin doctors will create political magic. They swing the opinions of enough individuals in order to decide the elections, and this is a bit unfair, because we ignore the feelings desires the emotions of the past three and half years now if you allow Google. Google, or facebook to vote for me, they know who I am what I want and what my emotions were for the entire four years since the last elections, so there is no need to privilege, my opinions and emotions on the last few days before the election. It's true one of the things that struck me for a while. Now is how weird it is still so relented polls and opinion polling, and we use this incredibly crude mechanism, which is, we asked people how they think they're going to vote. facebook knows better how they're going to vote than they do. So. Why do we ask them? And and polls have been in the industry has not made progress in allows transfer transferred years. Of the digital revolution polling has gone backwards, and we are attached to the idea that the individual is autonomous, not just in feeling and choice, but in knowledge so. The individual knows what the individual prefers, and the implication of what you as that actually. We already have machines that no better than we do. What is that we prefer, and this has implications, not just for politics has implications for everything.

Research and development of the Ministry of Defence was interviewed on the morning radio, and he explained the enormity of the achievement that he oversaw and he starts in formation Li like this quote, he says the satellite is an optical observation satellite very similar to the last satellite. We launched a few years ago. Eleven at which point the interviewer commonly risk indices name, says quote. Wait this. You have to explain if the last one was OPEC eleven. How come this one is sixteen, so Harari says quote. It's a lovely name affects sixteen I love it. Who says the numbers have to come in order and leaves skin, says quote no. No No, you have to explain this thing. You had nine Victoriano fake eleven, and then you skipped. Tawfiq Sixteen Harari says yeah. Is there anything wrong with that? LIBA, skin, says no, no, no, that's nice, but it demands an explanation. Harari says quote. I explained it to you. You're just not willing to accept my explanation. Leeza Skin says that's right Harari says we'll have a cup of coffee I'll explain leave says. Are you serious? Harari says yes, very serious. Liebskind says it's like we have January and February. And then we jumped April and say marches and good for US Harari Says No, it's like you call your girl Mikal. Mikal and your boy, Asaf, and then later you name your third kid. You're those are the names of my kids by the way what's wrong with that leaves could said that's not a good example. Why would you jump from eleven to sixteen? Harari said we found that. That's what fits our plans. And it goes on like that. Masses website says on the subject quote as Israel's not known to have attempted any satellite launches between the OPEC eleven and sixteen missions, it is not immediately clear whether twelve thirteen fourteen and fifteen designations have been skipped or apply to other spacecraft possibly satellites that have not yet been launched then quote. Quote the generally considered authoritative in such matters, defense update website noted dryly that the Israel Ministry of Defence Announcement did not explain the whereabouts of OPEC twelve through fifteen and quote, and I admit I cannot let this go. I tweeted at times of Israel Defense reported our gross who has one of the best sense of the absurd in journalism, also one of the sense of humor to see if he knew and he answered quote, so we asked about this and the press conference, and we didn't get actual answer what you don't like. The name was literally the response. The I official insinuated that twelve to fifteen blown up on. On launch we would have heard about it. However, it does remind me of an apocryphal practical joke. I heard of paint the numbers, one two and four on the back of three pigs, and let them loose in a school so that even after they're all caught, the administration continues to search for the missing number, three and quote to which someone named Ryan, replied in a tweet who gives Oh fach, which is fair enough, but I cannot let go if anyone out, there has seen OPEC, twelve or thirteen or fourteen or fifteen.

Can The Coronavirus Change American Society?
"So the other day I was doing one of those. Ask Me anything events at the daily wire. You know where people send in questions. Several people ask me what changes I thought would be wrought in society by the Chinese flu crisis and the truth is I have no idea. They'll be any changes or what they'd be if there are any but the question did set me to thinking about what I'd like to see happen. For instance. A lot of students have been taking their classes online during the lockdown. That could bring about some educational improvements. College obviously has become a cesspit of socialist and diversity. Garbage garbage is spreading from classrooms. Out into what we laughingly call the real world. I'd like to see smaller. Better colleges like Hillsdale with better values be able to compete with large institutions through online classes. Be Better I think if more people could take classes hillsdale than they do. Some of the universities working today I think the press has been behaving in a shamefully. Corrupt and one-sided manner for a long time and I think trump's daily briefings or maybe bringing that to light a little more than usual. Cnn is actually cutting away from any news they don't like an NBC. Says they want to stop covering the briefings altogether. Making trump popular. I hope they do stop covering them. So viewers move onto better venues. It would be great truly if people finally got wise to guys like NBC News Chairman. Andy lack who relentlessly cells leftism and feminism under the guise of news while covering up for rapists like Harvey Weinstein and abusers. Like Matt. Lauer has never been a reporter. He doesn't know anything about journalism. He's just selling a philosophy and he's doing it in a very dishonest way and it would be nice if it weren't it would be nice if it weren't just conservatives but also liberals who wanted a fair press. I think that would be helpful to both sides as I've said to many times already. It'd be nice if some women discovered that they've been lied to in that motherhood and homemaking actually a lot more significant and rewarding than virtually any out of the home job you can have. I want individuals of the female persuasion to have free choice. Obviously but I think they've been propagandized out of their best choice and no speaking. Generally I don't think men are as good at motherhood and homemaking just to save you. The trouble of asking in a Gotcha tone futures writer. Yuval Harari makes an interesting point about evolution. He points out that evolution favors life but not necessarily good life for instance animals that people like to eat. Cows and pigs and chickens thrive in terms of survival because we people keep them alive. But we don't always treat them very well so they survive but their lives suck and then we eat them. Harari points out that that can happen to humans to that a way of life that helps us. Survive can be chosen by evolution over a way of life that is good or moral. I actually think that has been happening to us. Recently I think globalism may be good for human survival and working women may be good for human survival and maybe even abortion infanticide and babies raised by strangers may be good for human survival and I think humans can survive and even thrive physically and yet becomes spiritually empty moral monsters with no hearts or souls. And I've sometimes been afraid. That was exactly what was happening to the world and once it happens by the way you won't even be aware of it. You'll just think it's progress. Even Conservatives will defend it once it actually goes through. It would be nice if this crisis made us pause a moment and ask ourselves not how we can survive and get rich but how we can live and become more human closer to God who made us into the people. He made us to be as the old joke. Goes I can dream. Can't I all right? You know you're sitting at home. We got to say a thank you to all the people who are delivering stuff. Because I know it's dangerous. I know they were working because they need the dough but they're doing a great job. I know we're depending on here People bringing us you know food and books and all the things that we need and medicine all the things that we need a really doing a great
Israel starts surveilling virus carriers, sends 400 who were nearby to isolation
"Take me back to last Wednesday when four hundred. Some Israelis got a text message on their phones. What did it say basically the you may already be infected with the corona virus. This was a brand new program that Benjamin Netanyahu had asked for and got permission to implement in which the State Security Service was allowed to use its digital surveillance systems in the service of viral tracking. Basically they were able to go through the phones. Presumably of every Israeli see where they had been in the previous few weeks overlay that onto where they knew certain cove in nineteen positive cases that Ben and extrapolated who might be at risk of having been infected. Those four hundred people were all notified that they were on that list and we're told to begin self isolation immediately well it's an attention grabber strictly from epidemiological perspective would seem to make some sense who is in proximity of someone known to be infected elsewhere. Public health officials are using more laborious analog way through interviews and so on but this nonetheless has been criticized. Why did did raise it media. Objections from privacy advocates. No one gave consent for this kind of monitoring. So Israelis are trying to decide whether the cost is worth the benefit even those people who were notified of the few that we talked to found it very creepy without a doubt but we're also quite aware of the benefits of being able to track the virus. There is also a question I gather of really how much security because this thing is not all that precise a tool. Yeah that's right there. There's not a lot known about exactly what the government is doing here. And there's a lot of elements to Israel's intelligence service generally and specifically its digital capabilities. That just aren't known as you say when it's just a matter of my Cell Phone Ping the cell tower somewhere in Tel Aviv. At a certain time of day where a known corona virus patient was also picking tower. There's not a lot of precision there. You're still talking about dozens of square miles of territory and at a recommended distance transmission for this virus of six feet. What's not known? Or what other intelligence digital surveillance capabilities. The Security Agency might be bringing to bear. Its suspected that Israel has ways of sorting a lot of material. That's more precise than that. We don't know exactly what they're using so All by itself it's low resolution tool but maybe something else from the Security State toolkit is enhancing the image. That's right there's been other reporting including by the New York Times that the government is bringing to bear other more sophisticated intelligence apparatus. Here you mentioned concern from privacy advocates does their voice matter in Israel in March of twenty twenty are. They drowned out by other voices. Well there's so much going on here not just the pandemic but also an ongoing political crisis where Israelis are beginning to question some very long held beliefs about the soundness of their democracy. I think as in countries all over the world prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu here is pushing the boundaries of government power. Is He addresses this crisis. Some of those concerns seem to have as much to do with endangered political power as they do responding to the pandemic for example his handpicked Justice Minister early on in the crisis cancelled pretty much all judicial proceedings in the country. Two days before Netanyahu's own trial on corruption was scheduled to begin. I don't think many people here thought it was a coincidence. It is kind of hard now to imagine Normally function court system. Nothing else is operating as normal plenty of democracy advocates. Feel like it's just one of Midi our grabs that he has instituted in the name of fighting the corona virus including the restrictions on parliamentary activity. That serve his 'cause well now that his faction no longer has the majority and there's a lot of concern that He's willing to go a lot further. He's desperate to hang onto power. He's proven willing to incite against the justice system against the Arab minority against anyone who opposes his ability to maintain power as he flips. Forward as sort of the essential person the only one as his supporters will say who can help Israel get through this pandemic so you have an authoritarian leaning prime minister struggling for power and his own personal liberty as a matter of fact neutering the parliament historian. Yuval Noah. Harari has said that's just tantamount dictatorship just today former president of the Israeli Supreme Court said that the speaker of the Knesset refusal to adhere to a High Court ruling that he must allow vote. That would likely take. His own job is rocking the foundations of democracy in Israel. It's hard to overstate the triple sense of crisis in this country. I think Israelis are wondering exactly how they're going to get out of this.

Zimbabwe Continues Its Economic Downward Spiral
"Support for this podcast and the following message come from cohnresnick whose business of baseball and original MLB video series shares key insights on the business side of America's America's pastime for a game changing strategies to help your business visit cohnresnick dot com slash MLB. The family of Zimbabwe's former leader Robert Mugabe burried him this weekend he was in power there for almost forty years and after he died people hoped for a new start but life subway hasn't gotten any better last last week city officials cutoff tap water in the capital city. Harare Andrew Meldrum is Africa editor for the Associated Press Sixteen years ago. He was expelled from Zimbabwe Walkway recently. He went back to look around at the country that he'd covered for decades. Meldrum told me the Water Shutoff in Harari is the result of both drought end economic economic crisis. There's no water going through the pipes. People were lining up to pump water from wells to wash their clothes in brackish streams or ponds so were seeing a city and a country that is really suffering from huge problems from an economic downturn as as I say you know no electricity in the capital for as much as nineteen hours a day no water. This is is something that was just unthinkable people. When I was living there I would imagine having spent so many years in Zimbabwe. You have lots of friends there. What are the differences in their lives since you've been. La well those of my friends who are still in Zimbabwe. They have experienced a roller coaster. Since I was expelled they they have experienced hyperinflation of more than a billion percent inflation Yaha and also they experienced something surprises in political situation they saw Robert Mugabe fall from power and there was a tremendous amount of optimism and excitement to think that that things were going to get better and now two years later at the death of Robert Mugabe. They're saying will actually things aren't better at all and the government under Emerson Mnangagwa's has has not achieved economic growth or an improvement in things so they're they're disappointed so the the question is why not I mean I remember the optimism awesome. People saying the country will be more free. The country will develop economically. It's Mugabe essentially. Many people said that's been holding us back and then you're saying but in two years nothing's happened why not well. Robert Mugabe left but the same party ZANU. PF and the same military military are running the show and they are not making the kind of substantial fundamental changes in the way the country is run that will will improve things for the average. Bob weigh-in one thing that was interesting that I'd like to highlight was a doctor who was calling for a strike to get higher wages. He was abducted he was tortured and he has now been released because there was an outcry amongst the medical community and throughout Zimbabwean of course it's great that he has been released but it it was one of a series of abductions of government critics in in recent months so it shows that there is a level of political repression still in Zimbabwe. What do you think happens next in in symbolic way. Is there some political leader political party waiting in the wings that has the potential to turn things around I don't see that political leader waiting waiting in the wings and it might be further in the wings than I can see at this point you know things are going to come together so that the country returns to the kind of prosperity that I saw it but I think it's going to take quite some time Andrew Meldrum. Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you Noel Andrew Meldrum the A._P.'s Africa editor joined us on Skype from Johannesburg.
Zimbabwe's Mugabe honored at state funeral, burial delayed
"Jim Bob boy is giving its former president Robert Mugabe a final goodbye with the state funeral got a real Jim Bob boy for more than thirty years and for the past three days in Bab winds have been remember in their controversial leader and very Jennifer alter joins us now from the national sports stadium in Harari eighty thanks so much for being with us. thank you for. what's the scene like there you don't actually feels a little this depicted because the government hold out all the stops for this. they had military and police band they brought in world leaders yes Jack bullock was a meek among them and got his body. often it was three. you know it doesn't mean flag it was escorted by generals and president Emerson god what the disjointed part comes because. you know about two years after Robert Mugabe was ousted in a military coup and the general this president they were the ones who ousted him so that was definitely on the minds of Walter. we spoke on behalf of the family let's listen. I see. the nice thing. the wide angle. well. anything I should note Scott is that this is a huge stadium in the capital city and it is half empty. what about people outside the stadium I understand you spoke with them too I did and you know the feeling outside is very different from the feeling here you know here he was remembered as a liberator as a. in Africa and you know. became a tight to his own people and right now Zimbabwe is hurting it's got the second worst inflation rate after minutes well and you know what woman I spoke to yesterday she was body she was in tears and she said her heart. I liberated from white minority rule and she was able to go to school to live in areas that were formerly all white but then she pointed to her legs they were stolen she didn't know why and she would get medical attention and she pointed toward the garbage off and then said that's because of him she was conflicted she was crying because her heart but also she resented. and and Nader. I understand British McGahee's not going to be put in the ground today there's been some confusion about when he'll be buried where he'll be buried Phyllis in on that if you could please. yeah I mean it's been a huge drama he was supposed to be buried at heroes acre which is a place where all of us involved with war heroes are very. family says that they were part because of the clean and they said that they didn't want. defensively they relented and they said yes will be buried there yesterday the apparently changed her mind and announced that the burial that was supposed to happen tomorrow has been canceled and that Robert Mugabe it will be very some point maybe in the next month maybe at heroes acre. and had a broader speaking with us from the national sports stadium half full he reports in or are a for these final services for Robert Mugabe ator thank you so much for being
Zimbabwe's Mugabe to be honored at state funeral
"But later today a state funeral will be held for Zimbabwe's former president Robert Mugabe he was ninety five he died last week in a private clinic in Singapore today state occasion in Zimbabwe follows days of rowing over exactly where he will be buried let's get more details from our correspondent Andrew Harding who joins us live from Harari wait preparations are underway for this state occasion enter. that's
Robert Mugabe will have private burial at national Heroes' Acre
"Last week's death of former former Zimbabwean tyrant Robert Mugabe at the age of ninety five presented his country with a problem if from the worst problem with which Mugabe presented Zimbabwe during he's later decades of deranged misrule. How does one commemorate the passing of a figure who was both hero and villain in Mugabe's case indeed both with the founder and destroyer of his nation after an amount of agonizing it has now been decided that Mugabe will be interred in the National Heroes Acre in Harare Laura a public memorial ceremony will be held on Sunday one joined in the studio with more on this bond monocle twenty regular Georgina Godwin Georgina as our listeners are probably aware you are yourself Zimbabwean and I remember we spoke at the time of Mugabe's removal by coup data at how we had that atwells that he was no longer enough and what an I guess a big mental adjustment that was for generations of Zimbabweans. How are we is it adjusting to the fact that he's no longer here at all. You know I think people feel slightly cheated in a way that he went out really with a bit of a whimper not a bang that we and indeed he probably expected and he's no longer there but I gather that in his last few months. He wasn't all there mentally anyway. If you look at the photograph few months well I I mean from when he started wearing you know dribbles and chuck suits but and obviously as you point out his his last years were were he was in the grip of definitely something probably dementia but for him to be dead is something that's quite odd because what you're seeing in Zimbabwe's as you alluded to is people wanting still to hate him but also really wanting to acknowledge the role that he played in in in the formations the country and say so there's quite a lot of them big dichotomy between how people feel because us as I think we discussed at the time if Mugabe is say had sort of cheerfully stepped down from office circa the late eighties and sort of idled into a retirement of giving elections and writing books he would be regarded as one of the twentieth century's heroic figures wouldn't they completely and utterly and he would have got a hero's funeral. Oh hang on the funeral which does prompt the question though that who who turns up for Mugabe's Hero's funeral thousands of people have been attending the lying in state. At referrers stadium in Harari who still is Mugabe's constituency well at the formal proceedings. You'll have a lot of heads of state state. I think Cyril Ramaphosa is coming from South Africa and various other people from from around the continent impacts further afield but in terms of ordinary people what generally happens in in in situations like this is that people have Boston and their promised food and those are the two things that people have that they don't have any fuel in Zimbabwe so they wouldn't be able to get there by themselves. They don't have the money money for bus fare and they're desperate to eat so if you promise people all of that they will turn up much. I mean I'm sympathetic to an extent extent or to this extent with the current Zimbabwean government. You have to acknowledge his passing some how you have to do something if not not what is being done what other suggestions have people made there was an argument of course to whether he should be buried in National Heroes Acre. But where else would you put him well. He is family. It appeared wanted him buried in his home area of Qatar which is where he comes from and I think would have been one way around it but it appears that the government was really pushing to have him in heroes. Acre which apparently he had not wanted himself. There was another really interesting piece of not not legislation but something else he put in his will. I think which was that his wife Grace Mugabe was to stay with the casket at all times until he was buried therefore what he's doing doing that is guaranteeing her starring role in his final Hurrah. Do you get the sense that the current government and we should remind ourselves that the current President Emmerson Mnangagwa was for many years Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe's kind of conciliatory if you will are they trying to reanimate the myth of Mugabe the liberator to to their own ends. I think that that would certainly serve a purpose that the end but I mean at the same time time. Mugabe's very useful is somebody that you can up lay all the blame on and say look it wasn't us it was the previous guy where clean we're going forward and of course that's what the what Managua A and his cronies would like us to think that this is a completely new dispensation. It really isn't make no mistake.

"harari" Discussed on Tech & Society with Mark Zuckerberg
"Hey, everyone this year. I'm doing a series of public discussions on the future of the internet and society and some of the big issues around that. And today, I'm here with Yuval Noah Harari, a great historian and bestselling author of a number of books. His first book sapiens, a brief history of humankind. Chronicled and didn't analysis going from the early days of hunter gatherer society to now how our civilization has organized and your next to books the homo day, a brief history of tomorrow in Twenty-one lessons for the twenty th century, actually, tackle important issues of technology and the future. And and that's a I think a lot of what we'll talk about today. But you know, most historians, you know, only t tackle and and an analyze the past. But you know, but a lot of the work that you've done has had a really interesting insights. And raised important questions for the future. So I'm really glad to have an opportunity to to talk with you today. So you've all thank you for joining for this conversation. Yeah. Heavy it'll be here. I think that if he story ins, and philosophers cannot engage with the Coen questions of the -nology in the future of humanity. The we aren't doing jobs on not just supposed to chronicle events, you know, centuries ago, all the people that lived in the past dead. They don't care. The question is what happens to us and the the people in the future. Yeah. All right. So all the questions that you've outlined where where should we start here? I mean, I think one of the big topics that we've talked about is around, you know, this dual ISM around whether with all of technology and progress that has been made are people coming together. And are we becoming more unified or? Is is our world becoming more fragmented and some curious to to start off by how you're thinking about that. And I mean, that's probably a big area. We could price spent most of the time on on that topic. Yeah. I mean, if you look at the long span of history, then it's obvious humanities becoming more and more connected. If thousands of years ago plant earth was actually a galaxy of a lot of isolated worlds with almost no connection between them so gradually people came together and became more and more connected until today when the entire world for the first time is a single historical economic and cultural units, but connectivity doesn't necessarily mean. Harmony the people we fight most often our own family members, and neighbors and friends. So it's really a question of are we talking about connecting people? Or are we talking about harmonising people? Connecting people can lead to a lot of conflicts. And when you look at the world today, you see this our team. For example, in in the in the Orion vise of woes, which we talked about earlier when when we met. Yeah. Which for me is something that I just can't figure out what is happening because you have all these new connecting technology and the internet and virtual realities and social networks, and then the most one of the top political issues becomes building walls and not just, you know, simul walls of firewalls building stone walls, like the most stone age technology is suddenly the most advanced technology, so one how to make sense of this world, which is more connected than ever. But at the same time is building more walls than ever before. Yeah. Well, I think one of the interesting questions is around whether there's actually so much of a conflict between these ideas of people becoming more connected and. This fragmentation that you that you talk about one of the things that it seems to me is that we

"harari" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"He's also author of the worldwide bestsellers sapiens a brief history of humankind and homo Deos a brief history of tomorrow. They've been translated into more than forty. Five languages sold more than twelve million copies likely the same thing's going to happen to his latest book which is out just this week. It's called Twenty-one lessons for the twenty first century. There's an excerpt at one point, radio dot org, Yuval Harari, welcome back to on point at Omegna. It's to be Oregon. It's very good to have you. First of all, you've written about the past you've written about the future, but I just want to ask you overall arching question about how you. View are present or our media present. Are you an optimist about it or pessimist? Well, I think we can summarize you manatees conditioning in three simple statements, things are better than ever. Things are quite bad and things can get much much worse, whether this Mexican optimist or pessimist, it's it's up to you. But but things are better than they have been are quite bad and things can get worse. Makes it sound like all of the above? Yes, I mean, but maybe the most important statement is the first one that things are still bitter than they ever were before, which means that you monitor can do things to improve the situation. If you think about our past achievements, maybe our biggest achievement ever has been to overcome famine which has been the greatest enemy of humankind. Since the beginning of history for most of history, most humans lived on the brink of starvation. But today more people die from obesity than from starvation. More people die from eating too much than from eating too little, which is actually an amazing achievement. And we have almost completely abolished natural famine from the world's natural famine is famine caused by natural disasters like floods and droughts and so forth. There are still a lot of people starving, but this is just political, famine. If people today starve to death and there are people starving to death. It is only because some government or politician wants them to starve to death in technological economic terms. There is no problem for the first time in history of feeding everybody, right? So this is along the lines of what Steven pinker wrote about right in his in his book enlightenment. Now that he says, we should be optimistic about how far humanity has come insist that our perceptions are wrong on. Yes, we should. I am not sure if we should be optimistic. We should be at least have gratitude and the knowledge are past chief moments. And this is also important in order in order to give us hope about the future. But we have a set of new and unprecedented challenges ahead of us. I would say the three most important, our nuclear war climate change and technological disruption. Even if we manage to prevent new. Nuclear Warren climate change it still almost certain that artificial intelligence and biotechnology will completely disrupt. Our job..
