"huck finn" Discussed on The Dinesh D'Souza Podcast
"Mark, you said right up front, were you talking about how this sort of liberal mainstream was overrun and intimidated and sort of pushed aside by what was originally a relatively small, radical faction. And I want to think about why that happened because obviously the liberals, the old liberals, had the power. The radicals, numerically, were not strong enough, they were younger professors. So I'm thinking, could it be that the older liberals somehow shared some of the assumptions of the radicals so that the radicals were able to say things like you're supposed to be an antiracist? How can you not agree with us that Mark Twain's huckleberry friend does not belong in the curriculum? Why would an argument so inane work? Unless the old liberals were to some degree vulnerable to it. I think the old liberals felt a great deal of moral authority from the civil rights movement. And then from women's liberation and then from the gay liberation of the 70s, this is liberalism. This is be a free individual. This is live and let live. Do your own thing. Whatever floats your boat. That was kind of the popular liberal attitude. And what they didn't realize is that not only were they offering this individualization that would liberate in their eyes, they were taking away the foundations of any kind of ultimate kind of moral authority, the foundations that would give deeper purpose deeper meanings in life. So that the liberal outlook really became don't believe in anything too strongly, right? We don't want strong gods. We don't want to be too forceful in our convictions. Let's not judge. We don't want to judge. We're going to let people be. And the thing is, the left never got into that kind of relativistic, easygoing, live and let live. They kind of offered that as a surface excuse or rationale, but what they really were doing was playing deep power games. Saul Lewinsky tactics, who was a brilliant tactician, by the way, and they ran circles around the liberals, and the liberals were always scared. Of getting the leftist accusation of, you know, what kind of conservative church are you trying to take us back? You want to take us back to Jim Crow. You want to put women back in the kitchen and the bedroom? And they were so vulnerable. They were so intimidated by those accusations. I mean, I saw them in meetings when liberal would offer but open free speech kind of things like, oh, you think it's okay to offend these people? Haven't these people suffered enough? And the liberals would buy it. They were such dupes. They were the useful idiots for the left. And so I would see the way the bureaucracy would be structured to make this happen. So if you teach a course, you have 35 students in the course. Two students on the course evaluation is complain that you committed some little micro aggressions. Maybe you taught huck Finn, which has the N word in those two students complaint. The other 33 students, good teacher, really, you know, learned a lot from him. The usual, those two students count more than those 33. They can file a complaint, it might take months the administration would take it very seriously. You will may end up saying, well, I'm sorry I taught that book. I didn't want to offend anyone. They do the apology, you know, the struggle session routine. And it passes away, but meanwhile, you've had three or four months of feeling like you've been smeared. I'm a good person. I didn't do anything that I didn't want to offend anyone. That's the liberal sensibility at work. The process is the punishment. And so what does the liberal teacher do? I'm not going to teach that book anymore. I'm going to change my ways. I'm not going to fight. There's something about the spinelessness. And I think Mark, I want to highlight the point that it's not just that it's a complaint from two students because let's imagine that those two students were being taught James Joyce's Ulysses. And the same two students were to say, you know, this book has an awful lot of raw sexuality in it I've been raised in a conservative household. This is a little disturbing to me. You shouldn't be teaching this kind of explicit stuff in a university. It's going to corrupt the morals of young people. I mean, the administration would not take that seriously with the professor wouldn't have to worry about that. So it is the very nature of the allegation coming from the left and Tapping into, well, it's kind of the race card, isn't it? And it's the gender card. As my boss rusty, Reno puts it. Well, liberals are against it, except when they're for it. Okay? They're very flexible about these things. We would say they're hypocritical. No, we're nuanced, okay? They would always rationalize their inconsistencies on precisely the grounds that you identified. The double standard, you know, dinesh you. It was amazing how they would just do it. And I think that they realize, well, this is how you rise in academia. I mean, if you're a college president now, you might be dealing with millions of dollars here and there. You've got an endowment to take care of. You've got big donors, you got a new hospital that you're building. All these big things going on..

"The importance of sohn's to society has never been so relevant as it is today this has been brought into shop relief by the immediate response to the pandemic but also by the very topical longer term challenges of climate change global pollution and population expansion sciences at the very center of our ability to meet these challenges and to improve the social and economic health of communities. On sure. you'll hear much about taking bicyc- research and driving through to outcomes for the public good. I'm sure that we all agree. On how important it is to remember that again and again it's been bicyc- research primarily undertaken to a new knowledge and understanding not for a clear applied outcome that has been the critical seat for significant usually unexpected breakthroughs.

"Brilliant brilliant movie and the other movie that you should take a look at. It's pretty poison Which also stars a gay man. Anthony perkins didn't want to be gay. He went into version therapy but of course he kept going back and he also died of aids. And it's interesting that he's another guy in this movie about a fake life that he has to live and this is with anthony perkins and tuesday weld. Tuesday weld is an absolutely gorgeous actress. perkins was defined by psycho. You've probably seen psycho And that kind of typecast him so he was always playing psychopaths. Who were kind of all american boys but had this terrible You know mental illness but he was actually a fantastic actor who was limited by this so he plays a young man who is on parole from a mental institution and it becomes attracted to this absolutely all american beautiful girl. She just absolutely beautiful all american teenager and he starts to draw her into his fantasies. He's a secret agent. He's going on missions and suddenly things get out of hand and everything goes terribly wrong and the question now becomes. Whose imagination are they living in. I really recommend pretty poison. And by the way i have to mention this i. I'm i'm always reluctant to plug my own stuff. But another work that deals with identity and the american mind is my book identity man which is about a very much related to seconds and that it's about a man a thief a petty thief who gets involved in a murder escaping and he is given a chance at a second life and given the same kind of thing plastic surgery and he is set free and the guy the identity man who gives him. This new life says to him. You know you think you're going to have a new life because i've changed your face but you're not he's a foreigner the the identity man and he says. Because you're an american you are dumb you think this is a big wide country. I come to new place. No one knows me. I change. I have therapy. I read book. I take medicine of operation. I am new man. You are never knew. Man says the identity man. I am identity man. Who tells you this. You have identity like stain in flesh. It never leave you. You have history like stained in mind and the question that the book the identity man which is also highly recommend. It is one of my better books and also a book. That was kind of ignored. I've always felt it was one of my least appreciated novels But the question of the identity might men is. Is your identity a stain. How much control you have it comes up with. I think an original answer an answer to that question. I've never seen anywhere else but the answer. I want to go back to. Since i started with his fence. And i've read this passage before. And i'll go through it briefly but remember the essential seen the scene. That makes huck finn. The all american novel is the scene. Where huck realizes he's doing a terrible thing by society standards his helping the slave escape and he writes to the slave owner gyms owner and tells her that he had is going that. He's you know where the gym is going to be. So she can take him back and he has the letter and he says. I felt so good. He felt so good when he finishes writing this letter turning his friend jim in the slave and he says i felt good and all wash clean of sin for the first time i ever felt so in my life i note. I could pray now. But i didn't do it straight off. I didn't pray right away. But i lead the paper down this letter that he wrote and i sat there thinking how good it was that all this happened and how near i come to being lost going to hell by helping the slave escape and i went on thinking and i got to thinking over our trip down the river and i see jim before me all the time in the day and in the nighttime sometimes moonlight sometimes storms and we have floating along talking and singing and laughing and i couldn't seem to strike no places to harden me against him but only the other kind and he starts to think about how much he loves. Jim and how much how good. Jim has been to him. And he takes up the piece of paper and he holds it in his hand and he says i was trembling because i got to decide forever between between two things and i note it and i studied him in it sort of holding my breath and then says myself all right then i'll go to hell and tore it up and this is one of the mighty seen in american literature one of the greatest scenes in american literature. Because it's a young boy a little boy knows he's gonna go to hell for doing the wrong thing but we know that all the norms are wrong. The churches wrong. The law is wrong. The society is wrong. The traditions are wrong. The love is right and huckleberry finn is discovers in this moment that he's willing to face hell is willing to go to hell for love of his friend. And that i think is the path to our identity and that is the defining thing true. Love not just romantic love but true love is the path to identity and the path to who we are and who we are not and it's the path we have to follow. Here's something that i love my express. Vpn i use it every single day. It is on my computer. it's also on my ios devices express..

"Not you know that. But how do you spell cleveland. it's k. L. a. v. a. Ender no es in cleveland. I just make it. Look this easy. So i want to return to the question of identity. I talked about last week and especially important. I think in in talking about whom we are going to be While we're in this difficult period in american history. We don't know if this period is going to last another year or another fifty years we have no idea. there's lots of surprises. I know a lot of people get paid a lot of money to tell you what's going to happen next but nobody was going to happen next And there are a lot of surprises to come and we the one thing. That's not a surprise that we know for sure is the you get this one life on earth and it will end and so you do not wanna live in misery and anger. You wanna live enjoy and with gusto even in difficult times even when you have to make sacrifices even when you have to stand up for something at great cost yourself. So i wanna keep talking about identity. Last week i was talking about identity in biblical terms. What the gospels. And the ultimate have to say about our identity as the image of god that is the essential self but is being acted out in the physical reality of our bodies in the world. The the physical reality of our bodies in the world that we are responsible to write it and yet we also wanna be ourselves special unique selves. And we wanna feel that that has guided by who we want to be. What we we want of ourselves. And i'm to turn to this and particularly american context because i think in america we have specific problems that have now spread to the whole world through us but that were brought up by us and i wanted to take a look at some of american works of art that discuss this and as a bonus you will get to hear about two wonderful wonderful cult thrillers. That you've never seen if. I will bet money that most of you have never seen this. Not all of you have never seen it but most of you have never seen these. These cult movies The reason the american dilemma is special is because in america we believe that you have the freedom to be who you want to be but again your identity is also defined by the god who made you and it's also defined by the customs and traditions. That are the combined wisdom of our forefathers right and the by the moment that we're living in time by your body. I think men have a responsibility to courage and integrity. I think women have a responsibility to tenderness generosity. But at the same time. I think individual men and women You know may have other ways of defining those responsibilities. So what does it mean to be a free man. What does it mean to be a free american. Well i think the essential taxed on this is huckleberry finn ernest. Hemingway famously said all modern american literature come from one book by mark twain called huckleberry finn. I know i've talked about huckleberry finn. But i think is essential Work of american art. And we we have this memory of huck finn. It's being about first of all of course it being about the central relationship between hawk and the escaped slave. Jim going down the river on a raft. But one of the things we forget about. Huck finn is that the kind of picturesque novel which means is one event following another event without necessarily connection and there's a lot of conman that they meet along the way a lot of dangerous people a lot of lies and there's a writer win interesting writer named paul cantor who writes about pop culture and he has a book called pop culture in the dark side of the american dream in which he specifically addresses the idea of freedom. In huck finn. And here's part of what he says. He says there is a dark side to the liberation of human desire and ambition that democracy brings about set free from aristocratic restraints. People in a democracy are beset by new fears uncertainties anxieties. They can no longer be sure of their status in life. The prospect of rising and status is inevitably accompanied by the possibility of falling. Now i you know this class. A class system gives you a very definitive identity. I saw this england. I saw people of different classes. Just eight at each other but also constrained and defined by their class. We don't really have that here. Women men the more restrictive the female and female roles are the more. You're also defined. I've talked about a famous scene in the Memoirs of an explorer mungo who has taken in by women after he's beaten senseless and these naked in the women. Say oh the poor white man. He has no mother. He has no women to take care of them. They knew exactly who they are but their role is limited. Once you take those restraints away. Suddenly you could be. You could want to be more than you are but you could be less than you are. And that's why you get the hysteria over me confirming your identity. You not just a man who says woman. I have to say you're woman because otherwise the whole thing the whole charade might fall apart. Can't goes onto say this though. He says moreover the clear aristocratic markers of social status dissolve leaving people to sort out where they stand in relation to each other it becomes difficult to distinguish the genuinely self made man from the conman..

"I guess i don't know but it just this idea like of writing books for kids so they could get excited about reading And those books while popular were not actually really taught in schools Largely because they kind of took an anti education stance. This idea that like you could be a very logical person and still be. Be dealing with these fantastical things and not have the skills check understand them so it was like one teach kids in school that they don't need to actually go to school. Like if you think about like huck finn like it's just like oh is fiercely anti education. There's a whole world out there that is exciting nourishing and it's not school. They were not. They were not taught in school But what kind of change. Things is in the mid twentieth century. Us was very competitive with like the soviet union this whole idea like there are other countries than their children are performing better than our children on tests and have better outcomes and so there was an article In life magazine titled why do students bog down on the i r and also a book called. Why johnny can't read and what you can do about it And both these pieces kind of talked about how we are. We are giving children kind of thing. You know what specifically was called like dick and jane readers to see dick dick run run dick run like like not really encouraging them to like immerse themselves. You know yeah any progress. We have made with henry. Reading has been built upon the promise that once he is able to do this. He can read these books. He likes yeah himself. That's the carrot for him. It's not enough for him to just be like to have this knowledge in my brain. I wanna read these spiderman stories. Yeah my obsession. And the reason i thought about this is that like i have been obsessively buying henry books for a very long time now and i always feel good about it because it's like oh books are good We have way more than we could possibly need for a roomful of children And so much. So now that henry will be like dude any new books new books today like like he expects new books every week And in part of the reason. I get them as it has just like. It's so fun to see these stories and to think about kind of what learning there has to be done from them and then also like to kind of get him excited about like new new things that he can play in and nino come up with so this idea that we were not getting kids excited about reading and thus they were not becoming better students Kind of took off in this period.

"Out for you. It's buried right here on this ship. It's the adventures of Tom Sawyer. It's the story of a boy. He doesn't have to go very far to dig up adventure. He finds it in his own small town on the Mississippi River. Okay, so Christian then what happens? He we basically enter the world of Tom Sawyer through the eyes of this little dog. That's right. Wishbone is actually the character of Tom Sawyer. Aunt. He is acting with a bunch of human actors who play the rest of the characters, including Huck Finn and And everyone else of that world of twins world Cat. Were you a fan of wishbone growing up? Oh, yeah, I was a huge fan. I was a giant wishbone obsessive. I had Ah, Wishbone backpack that someone got me in a couple of other smaller wish phones. See I grew up is a huge fan of the show about you, Christian. My brothers and I had two younger brothers, and we would rent wishbone videos from the library and watch them religiously, the ones that they had up there and then we also taped some Off of PBS, and we would watch them so not quite to the level of cat with the backpack and everything but definitely a fan. What was it about the show that was so endearing and made you into such super fans and made a lot of people into such super fans. Was it that he was just a really cute dog? Was there more to it than that? I mean, the fact that he was a very, very cute little dog. Those trademark little spots on his ear did make it very easy to fall in love with the show, but I think it was also that it was one of the only shows at the time. They didn't feel like it was babying you so when they would talk about all these different stories in these big adventures, it felt closest to how I felt as a little kid how lots of other little kids felt. In terms of wanting to go on these big adventures and taking yourself so seriously, But really, you're just a little kid stuck at home and living vicariously through this adventurous dog and and the fact that it was introducing you to all these great stories like I grew up loving the Three Musketeers and Robin Hood.

This you said they use their fin as a cloak the user fins as a clerk but the could walk on land and then they would go in the water. And this is where the a bit more meaty US rather than as a bit of a crossover believe Mermaids when the war of the fin and on the line they've got legg's okay and the like the Lana and that's what they invoked can do as well so what they would do on launch was they would they would steal men they would kidnap them.

So if a wooten was to marry a human man she would stay beautiful forever if she was to marry a Finn Man Shoud be the and ugly bent for the rest of the word they used was bent. which is a either way is not the the human mind because it would be pretty good? I mean if you snag Huck Finn Man. Who Cares aren't we that aren't any? Oh partly the man are just rank just horrible lonesome. Pu huge marches there loops. Oh no because another reason that defend women what the human mind is because it they would at least be treated well. That's what seems to be though so it while the human men were kidnapped against her will they got hall mermaid. I guess the idiot didn't have to do the work. They came her her So the at least it'd be a decent marriage. It would seem decent life but if they might have iman not only with the Luke Lake the underneath the von elephants fallback would be forced to work on land. Either as a healer but a spinner.

So they would have to do this and then they would have to give all the wages the earned and give it to the thin man and if she didn't the old domestic abuse so in exchange for the Finn men capturing the human men for the Finn Women to marry yeah they had to work on land. I can give the Finn. Men Their wages if Women Monitor Human Mon- hoppy if Finn Women Muddied Fin man she would have to go mark. I feel really bad about this whole situation because I don't WanNa take anybody against their will but I also don't want that person or that Finn Woman in that position that's the Shit Situa- by the sounds of it.

"Is always has been sitting right there. The train face. And charity the president's endorsement of bible literacy classes would apply to public schools in certain states. The ACLU has already promised to fight. You know, it seems to me as though teaching art in a Christian school unless at art is awfully graphic shouldn't really offend anybody. What do you what do you think? Right. So I'm I'm split on this conversation. Right. So I one hundred percent believe that you should not be teaching specific religious values in a public school. Because again, we don't have a national religion. In fact, we are you know, as a as a country are founded on not forcing a religion upon our people. However, if there is a my my son goes to a preschool, that's a religious preschool. Right. Oh my God. Ryan, it's very close to my house. And you know, this is this is an outrage can you feel against the liberal establishment? But by sending your child the fruit of your. Your loins to a religious school shocked shocked, but but listen, so here's here's the piece of that. So it's a very good school. They're very nice people. There was hover site. I want to get into. I don't wanna I don't wanna get in trouble school. But they're very nice people. And and it's really good for him. But it's not a public school. Right. It's a private school. So they they have their values and just like a business can have its values that chooses to whether I agree with that. Or not, you know, the businesses can, you know, the famous case of not making the cake in Colorado. Right, right. So, but but it's a business and they can make those decisions, and they have to live with those effects, but a public school in my opinion does not have the right to teach specific religion. Now, I think probably has a teacher if you were asked to teach something that was contrary to your religion. You should have that right? To to say, I'm not going to teach that because you know, what? Right. Real teaching about something is different than than recruiting or subscribing someone to join. I would agrout now when they were when when. I mean, we could pull up clips where they're teaching about the Islamic faith in public schools with the intent of allowing the students to become Islamic principles. You can teach about all the face. I have. No. But then you teach about the faith. You have to say these are their principles. They're not saying that you have to ascribe to them. But these are what this faith is about. You know, the bible is arguably the oldest piece of literature in the world injury society in in translated into lane, Matt which is actually the book of the Jewish faith. But go ahead, which is part of the bible. If you just want to go back to couple thousand years, it's a pretty old book. It's it's definitely on the rear bookshelf Gutenberg bible was print with the first printed documents that was was available to any sort of circulation beyond beyond the scribes. And and and so on was was the bible and one would think that not just from. Just from a historic standpoint. And from a being literate in society. You know, if somebody says to you, you know, that you should. I mean, there's all kinds of quotes from the bible. I don't want to go into specific, you know. But Matthew seven is one of my favorites. Anyhow. Seeking you shall find knock on the door gets open. You know? Keep looking in your death do or do not. There is no try. Yeah. Yeah. Whatever, you know. That's that's a really good one. Right. And it doesn't mean that you have to embrace the faith of the bible to be exposed to it and read about it. And I I'm kind of surprised that it is an almost you'd have to. I'd have to say that there's no other book that has had more influence on unanimity than the bible, and if you're in an educational institution. I would think that that book would be one that you would want people to be familiar with. It's going to be around a lot longer than than catcher in the rye is going to be around when when the scarlet letter is forgotten about and even Huck Finn has gone the bible still going to be and has been for a longer period of time making more of an influence read by more people than any.

No say freed two birds with one Scone is that makes sense to birds. Okay. But why would a bird one a Scone? What's good? Yeah. But I don't think your bird scones, who's the PA isn't it's going to sweet bread. What does this on? It's more like a dry English type thing. Okay. I thought it was. Yeah. Feed two birds with one Scone do you understand it? Most of these are like Shakespearean sings this is part of our heritage part of our English language. This is part of our cultural identity, and you wanna whitewash it for this garbage feed. Two birds with one Scone imagine saying that to a stranger on the street. They'd be like, I'm sorry what you know feed. Two birds with one Scone. Next. They say be the Guinea pig. Be the test tube. That is. So that's like, you know, what? This is so stupid. You know, what they're doing is. Like reminds me of when they started taking the N word out of Vokes literal Huck Finn in particular, which is this one full-time piece written by Mark Twain. Written back during slavery. And it's about the sweet boy that goes on this epic journey with his slave, his family slave, and he uses the N word all the time because that was normal at the time, but this kid is deeply unraced, and he sees his slave four person. And it is really a landmark book and a real time piece, and so two chain rewrite the history did they change it to order just remove changed it to slave. I think they like that is so so it's a rewriting of history. I mean, it doesn't serve anybody the kids not racist people reading are racist. But it's so important to know fact, is good to have this up to look at is what the past used to be like worse commercial, though, we saw the coffee force. It's so shocking.

"Doubt. So for that one second I feel really good. And then it goes away. And then I keep striving for it. I think that's what keeps me writing. And and endeavouring to do other things is just I mean, there is sort of an underlying confidence. But there's always a sense of vulnerability or everything getting dismantled and having to to rebuild. It would both of you do in those artistic dark max of the soul. I mean, other than just wake up the next thing keep writing, but you have any sort of techniques or superstitions. The one thing that that's been occurring to me more and more lately. Sounds totally new age. But the idea that they're actually using artistic problem. Like if you get yourself into a bind, it's the story saying I want to be more than you thought. I was so then if you kind of say, well, all right. I believe that for a while and offer assist, then it's weird. 'cause like this. The solution of the story is always directly embedded in. What seemed like impossibility? So that was a big breakthrough instead of saying on six pages, and it's no good. I stink. I should have been a lawyer, you know, throw it away and instead to go I just haven't found it yet. And Stewart Divac says the scripture, Colorado, he's and he's got a stronger accent than me. He says the story is always talking to you. Listen, you know? So that's that's not a faith is a form of going. All right. I know you're not ready yet. But when you are here, I always love that story that the twenty nine to put down Huck Finn for two years because he start he tried to read it another children's book and realized on the raft. Like, this is not what I'm writing. So you had to kind of reapproach. What do you have a similar? Banging your head against the wall. Aside from that a literal being having and so now, I don't do that. But I do I often will start with a blank page. I'll just take whatever draft I'm working on and set it aside and opened up a new document. I think as a means of a reimagining it as brand new and seeing if I can approach it differently. At the onset. And even if that becomes just an exercise, it kind of helps me get get unstuck and think about it as having elasticity. They can get everything starts to feel very ossified. And you just think, you know, all the cracks have been filled and a blank pages as scary. As can be can also seem vast and in that, I don't know sometimes it's very reassuring so many people get writer's block. Meaning they write something the first time in it stinks. And so they spear and for me, the total antidote to that is revising. So the first one is supposed to stink it's really supposed to. It's all right. And then once you have it you just go through and exert your taste on it, many many times with feeling of faith in times its starts to change. So that means for me, I never feel like I did bad writing. I did prepatory the next day. You come in. You all that stupid cut that out right? Yeah. You seem like such a healthy writer,.
