"So they come back the next week. They play a better game against the Chiefs offensively, um not to any great degree. And then the defense just collapsed. And so you say, Hah! Geez, what's going on here? They play a Jets team. I thought the offense got themselves right in a lot of ways. Ah in that game, and their yardage looks great, even though their point total does not in the red zone problems cropped up. But their defense was lights out. Now we just heard our last caller gym in Jamestown. He's like, defense is good. We're all here running the table on division. I'm like, I don't know if I'm ready to buy that after one game, you know what I mean? So That's why I'm a little cautious. I think this offense is going to take another step forward this week because Josh is experiencing being played differently by defense is for the first time in his career. I think you see the success that he had with his arm and weeks, one through four and defense's weren't necessarily expecting that because he has not shown that yet as an NFL quarterback, he showed that in weeks one through four, they start playing him differently, based on his strength that he has now shown in his third season. You have to react and and then learn how to play as a quarterback with the defense's dropping guys in and giving you room in underneath routes, which in his first two years as a quarterback, he was known as slinging the ball more times than not, but not necessarily connecting on those balls. He's finally starts to connect, and now he has to rely on other things that he hasn't really done as a quarterback. I think you see him. I learn in this game against the Jets, and I think we see him continue to progress down the road this season with what he's learning about how defense's can play him and with the guys that he has on offense to rely on. Hopefully this defense has it figured out for this game. Let's go back to the phones. We go to Josh in New York. Josh, What do you have for us, sir? Welcome to the show. Guys. Thanks for having me on. I love the show. I think it's this one would be very important to the bills for reasons that were said before just a sight. The psychological I'm effect and just getting that. That monkey off off their bags if you will, and I kind of have an interesting take on the offense and how they can kind of Ah, achieve that. I mean, it was great to see Josh Josh complete a lot of his passes on Sunday Gotten suggests. I think they really, really Mr Against the Titans, then the chief And now John Brown is ah is clearly ah, An important piece of of that offense is that deep threat But I think Be the case that John is not ableto play. I think they need to your allies Isaiah McKenzie or Andre Roberts as they're both kind of More speed, more speed, guys. Ah has Brown is and I use either of them or both. A czar deep starts on Sunday and I just kind of want Don't you guys take on? I want to hang up and listen. You guys talked about it? Yeah. I mean, I'm thanks for the call. I'm not. I'm not opposed to that. I mean, I I think Andre Roberts is ah, actually. Probably one of the best blocking receivers on this team. So not only does he help you from a speed or out running perspective, I think he also helps in the run game as far as blocking goes downfield. I wouldn't mind seeing more. Roberts. I think he can play. So if you want to use him a little bit more than Gabe Davis, because you want to put more of a speed product on the field. I'm in favor of that. Mackenzie uses his speed a little bit differently. As you know, Coach table usually Deploys him to stretch the defense horizontally. Um, which is fine, and I think it has a purpose within the scope of this offense. I think When he comes on the field, though, that people know what he is, so it's I don't want to say it's predictable, but when he comes on the field, they know why he's there. It's to cause confusion and and get people's eyes in the wrong places. And then when they're not expecting him to get the ball, he invariably gets the ball and usually makes a play. But as we saw last week, the Jets did sniff out. One of those plays for an 11 yard loss took him out of taking out of field goal range. I think it forced them to punt if memory serves Was they were behind the sticks after that, But, yeah, I mean, I'm willing to try stuff that the Patriots haven't seen a whole lot of and nobody's seen a whole lot of Andre Roberts on the offensive side of the ball. He's got snaps here and there through the course of the first seven games. But nothing dramatic Where you say we gotto keep an eye on this guy, So if you want to utilize him a little bit more, I think he's more than capable. You have several players on this team that you can use in different ways used their strengths in different ways. Why not get into the playbook? Turn a couple more pages and figure out how you can use these guys to to throw off a talented secondary in the Patriots defense. Who Chris like you've said is going Tio Dream up a game plan against the bills to to slow them down in some type of way, because that's just what Bill Bella checks defense's do so you may have to get a little bit creative with that. And I think Isaiah McKenzie in Andre Roberts are our two answers there too. How you could dial them up differently. Yeah, and I'm I'm hoping they don't have to turn to that. As as their solution. I'm hoping John Brown is healthy and if.

"Is he going to take a page out of the book of the last three defensive coordinators against this bill's team where they kept everything in front of them and force them to You know, nickel and dime their way down the field. Or did Josh show enough patients last week in using what was given to him to still roll up 422 yards of offense? Might that steer him in a different direction? I don't know. With the second. This is probably the best secondary they faced this season. Yes, so there's that. So maybe New England isn't shy about playing a little man or maybe some bracket coverage. I assume if I mean if John Brown's available, that's a huge help, because what has been the prevailing problem For this bill's offense against the Patriots defense over the years. It's been that they really only have one or two things that they can really rely on offensively, and the Patriots always take that one most important thing away, and then it's on that one other thing to kind of carry the load offensively, and that always proves to be a difficult lift. And then they don't score enough points and they lose the football game well this year. Is probably different from that standpoint, provided your healthy so if John Brown can practice this week and play and play effectively, I think that's a huge ad. For this match up this week, because if you go for wide yes, the Patriots have four good cornerbacks. I mean, J. C. Jackson is a nickel. You got McCord, Ian Gilmour. That's a pretty good top three. I just got to say, But if you convey four wide, you know, and now you put Jonathan Jones on the field, they're fourth corner. Maybe. Now you get the matchups you're looking for. It's harder to bracket coverage. When you have four wide receivers out in the formation, I wouldn't be opposed. And I've been banging the drum for this. To go 20 personnel go split backs with Moss and Singletary and then go three wide or go too wide and a tight end. Whatever you want to do. I just think that affords Josh Ah, bounty of options, And I think there are matchup advantages to be had there. So how they choose to attack going to be interesting, But John Brown's availability this week will be huge, huge because you've seen the difference when he's not out on the field, right? Missed him. On the field they can on Lee do. They could do a lot without him, But they can't do as much as they did in weeks. One through four with John Brown. I mean, he is so important to this team. I think we've seen these added weapons and what they could do. What this offense Khun do when when you're healthy. And play against the Patriots. What haven't we had you just touched on it? We haven't had those amount of weapons. So if you bring John Brown into the mix, I think you see a lot more success from this offense. I think you see success in the red Zone, which we did not have last week against the Jets. That's a big question mark heading into this game after they've been successful in the Red Zone to start the season, ranking seventh. Going into the Jets game. You get a little bit healthier on offense. You have a lot more options. And you would wonder like, okay, Brian Day Ball is known for mixing things up from time to time with his offense. You have these different players with different skill sets this year. Why not do something like 20 personnel? When you're tight? We don't know what the tight end situation is going to be this week, either. We hope we hope that those guys come off the cove it list but we're not sure. So you may have to pull some tricks out of your sleeve to be the defense that's really talented in the secondary. J. C. Jackson has three interceptions. Devin Cordy has to Gilmore has one. Jonathan Jones has one. So you may have to be a little bit different. We're heading into week eight. This offense doesn't have to worry about being vanilla or not rolling a lot of things out as you do when you're in the first couple weeks. This is the time where you kind of Can open those things in the book that you have. And call this and call that because you've now had eight weeks together on the practice field. 80305 51 85 50 to 5 50 We go to the phones and Leading us off. Is Jeff on a cell. Jeff, What do you have for us? Welcome the one bills live. Hey, I need your help. Mr Relationship, man. Oh, yes. Oh Football Crisis hotline Coming early this week. What's your emergency? Well, I got a voice was a Patriots fan, and she hides my buffalo bull blanket when this week happens. Oh, my God. I don't know what to do about it. So this this is the class. This is the classic House divided situation. We see this a lot of times in college football. We also see in the NFL, particularly in the NFC East. And yes, we've is she from? Is she from the New England area? She in New England native Is this the issue here? Citrate. I moved from Buffalo. Bangor and very native. Yeah, that's that's a tough road to hoe. Especially when you're in enemy territory. So here's the situation when you had one thing. Yeah. Most Patriots fans now our camp a basic and believe it or not now, Good Lord. Oh, good Lord. So, Jeff, Here's what I've got for you, okay? Is a tricky situation. Obviously, she feels comfortable taking these measures because you know she's in her native land. So to speak, and you know you're kind of an enemy territory here. Um I think there has to be A designated area of the home. That is considered neutral ground. Okay. Ah, where any and all alliances are openly accepted. Now, if she cannot, you know, agreed to this compromise. Well, then some Some other paraphernalia that belongs to the Patriots is going to have to magically disappears. Well this week. You know, I for an eye as I see it, we're we're not talking about anything dramatic or serious. Where anybody is going to get hurt. Maybe except for their feelings. So you know if she can acquiesce and say, all right, you know, in this room over here That can be Bill's land. Okay, but over here is Patriots country. And leave it at that now. I don't know. Obviously don't know your wife. You know her better than I do. But do you think this is a compromise that you can at least reach? I mean, you have you have just a cz much right in this marriage, as she does. To exercise your fan ship. I'll try but the good thing that she has a white car in Buffalo Bill stickers really look good on it if she if she doesn't Oh, so you already have a plan. I do. I just want to make sure that sounds Ah! O king. Do you think about that matter? Give me giving the female perspective on this Putting. He's thinking about putting. What is it? Magnets?

"In At times, you're gonna have to do that. And if they if Josh Allen can show that he will just pick you apart up and down the field, the bills are gonna have a long drive. The bills are going to keep the other team's offense off the field. Then you'll see the defence coordinator start down backups of pressures and then I think the big place come back. John Brown. Being out does coincide with the Tennessee game. Of course, he missed that game. He was back for Kansas City seemingly physically compromised to some extent, even in that game. So does him because you're talking about getting the run game going there, right yard for Carrie. That'll bring safeties up. I don't know how interested the bills are in doing that on DH, not real sure how good they might be at it because it has not happened yet. Just John Brown himself being on the field. Open some of that stuff back up, Or is it really just about whether or not you can, you know, get those safeties out of those high spots. Yeah, I definitely think John Brown being out contributed when you have two guys that could take the top off the defense like John Brown is Bond big can that that takes some preparation from a defense that takes You know a lot of effort for them to keep both of those guys away from making big plays when you only have one true big play threat down the field, like the fund digs like the bill's head yesterday. Then you can game plans. You can play that a little easier. That's a good point, though. I feel like the Consensus goal for the bills this year out here, at least, was win the A F C East and let's just take a look at that. You've got this New England game coming up. Wow, Eric the Patriots a windless month they look terrible. Cam Newton looks terrible. By the way every pass he's throwing is to the left, whether that's an injury or something I don't know, but it's so strange to see them they look slow on both sides. And, you know, we talked about the Dolphins last weeks. We have just heard about Ryan Fitzpatrick being benched. But, man, I'm seeing Justin Herbert. And of course, Joe Burrow. Light it up. It kind of makes me want to assume that too. It will also do that, and they have, you know, they have a good team. They have some good players around him. I mean, I don't I don't mean to ask you about both teams at once, and the Patriot game is the next game. But like To the point about the division this year, and the Bills are in, you know, in the lead here. What do their chances look like to you when you consider the Dolphins and Patriots? I think they look great. And when you consider the fact that the Dolphins that's Ben Smith's Patrick as hot as he has been, and I did reach out to him last week. I did not joke around with him. He was pretty upset about it. We've talked a bunch then. But, yeah, he's upset. He talked about that the national media. You know to is going to be interesting. And you know, I don't know. What he's going to look like down there, and I think it increases the bill chances of winning the division over the Dolphins with employing. I'll just say that, but I say that I have a lot of respect for him coming off the injury. I have a lot of respect for his game just to be kind of thrown in like he's going to be thrown in this upcoming week. You know, I just don't like their chances. A smudge as I did with fifth in there and then Patriot seemed to be spiraling. And I believe we talked about it on this show. Um When the when the Patriots start off the year pretty high, and they took it. I mean they were on the one yard line to beat Seattle was just dealt their first loss last night. You know what it seemed to be was Josh McDaniels was being really creative with using all of his weapons. What they do have their and Tom Brady's probably left because of the lack of weapons there. But he was getting very creative. I think I think defensive caught on to what he's doing. They're playing to Cam Newton limitations right now. I don't think you can also be understated. The fact that Cam Newton these last two games have been so rough on him. Coming off of the Corona virus. And you know, I have no idea when the symptoms were and what repercussions he has. But you know that's something definitely to consider if that will be short term or feel stop struggling as much. I'm trying to refuse to make a joke about leftfield throws me someone to confirm the credit bars, although, but, um I will say this. I think teams have caught on to the Patriots. When they had all those opt out. They got past it, but it's going to create serious depth issues as the season goes on, and you know what I just I really like the bill's chances of winning the division and I'm I'm over like, not jinxing it. I think the bills win this week. I think they're ticked off with con what their perception is right now. I think they beat the Patriots handling interesting like you think they might feel disrespected. I would say so. Yeah, and interesting, you know, and I mean, I feel disrespected for them, and every day I feel everybody's Thinking, especially people in Buffalo, like Look, we've been excited before and that New England beat us. Well, you know what they have the greatest quarterback arguably of all time. They were always in a position to win games like the Patriots never got blown out with Tom Brady. They you know they were always in games..

"The moral issues involved the stakes involved and to bring the issue of Slavery Front and Center, and that's what John Brown did. and. What about Abraham Lincoln you read about a speech he gave I think on the tenth anniversary of his inauguration was out it was. Yes And actually the speech was at the unveiling of a statue. In Washington DC, a statue that has currently been the source of controversy of Lincoln at the moment of emancipate and the current controversy is that the slave depicted is rising up to freedom that's artistic symbolism of it but the complaint is that wait the the slave should be the slave person now with the shackles off should be standing as tall as Lincoln. But anyway so Frederick Douglass. Was Sorely critical of Lincoln during the early phases of the war that Lincoln was not taking the position that this war is about slavery that Lincoln was denying the obvious fact that it was slavery that caused this and these ships slavery is going to have to be dealt with before this ended. But Douglas concluded finally after Lincoln embraced, the emancipation pry issued the emancipation proclamation and after the war turned out, well, that Lincoln was probably a better judge of American politics than Douglas himself was and so Douglas concludes that both men John Brown Abraham Lincoln. To the patient in the way it played out. I want to finish by coming back to where we started. This is a story about two men choosing very different paths in pursuit of justice one, you know radical and violent the other. Pursuing traditional politics as the route to change, and as you look at what we've seen in the streets of the United States and its political discourse. Over the past year Allen enough. I'm just wondering what? These stories you think tell us as we consider these issues. I hope they tell us relatively little because if they tell us a lot, it will mean that we are closer to a civil war than I hope and think we are but there is a lesson to be taken from this nonetheless, and part of the lesson is that every movement for social change requires the conscience of people like, John Brown. But people like John Brown sin can sometimes follow their conscience too far. Just because you're on the right side of history doesn't mean that you can't go wrong and no one would or should countenance the murders John. Brown was responsible for in Kansas or his efforts to start a war that might result in the deaths of hundreds or thousands of people so. We should look at John Brown as having the courage of his convictions but. Let's not take it to those extreme ends. Abraham Lincoln tells us that in American democracy. Real. Change lasting change comes only through the political system and it wasn't John. Brown's raid on harpers ferry. It wasn't even the man, the anticipation proclamation that ended slavery. It was the thirteenth amendment and Lincoln had known from the beginning the slavery would not end in America until the constitution was changed. And he was absolutely right. So maybe we need the conscience of the zealots of the extremists like Brown but we also need the pragmatism in the steady hand of the politician, the pragmatists like Lincoln. Will H W brands?.

"He imagined that he would. Start. A school for black children and that he would make his contribution this way but it didn't quite answer the need. The John Brown seemed to have for immediacy for making an impact now. He became famous and a wanted man for his activities in Kansas in the eighteen fifties kind of waging his own private work against slavery I will explain why Kansas was such a flashpoint for the issue of slavery in the eighteen fifties. In eighteen twenty. Congress approved the Missouri compromise which set aside the northern portion of the Louisiana purchase which would include Kansas. Territory. For Freedom. It would allow slavery in the southern part around the state of Louisiana where there were already slaves. But basically, the idea wasn't thinking was that this new large part of the American West should forever be free from slavery. And that was the deal in eighteen twenty and opponents of slavery were counting on that to contain the spread of slavery. But in eighteen fifty, four congress repealed that portion of the Missouri compromise and opened Kansas territory to well the principled. The phrase was popular sovereignty. The idea was that any settlers could go. Pro Slavery or anti-slavery the pro slavery settlers could take their slaves into Kansas and the deal was that when Kansas territory than had enough residents to qualify for statehood, those people there on the ground would get together. They would write a constitution and the constitution of the state would either allow slavery or forbid slavery. But what it meant was that in the eighteen fifties. The proponents of slavery spread and the opponents of slavery spread they felt themselves in competition. We have to get our people on the ground in Kansas so that that critical moment win the constitution is written our side will prevail and so there was this rush to. Kansas. By people who were both for against slavery and John Brown, went with several of his adult sons on the side that was opposed to slavery. What kind of violence was occurring between the two sides there. At first the violence took the form of relatively minor acts of intimidation. So. The settlements of one side of the other would be rated by militias guerrilla units of the other and things will.

Never Surrender, with Garbled Twistory
"Into Slavery Gabriel Prosser grew to be a strapping young man trained as a blacksmith and learned to read he his brothers and his wife hatched a plan to not only a free themselves from bondage, but all enslaved people in Virginia their plan was to gather more men take over the capitol of Richmond and kill all the white people with the exception of methodists Quakers and the French processor. Would then rule the New Kingdom of Virginia. The plan didn't work. My name's Moxi and this is your brain on facts. Why didn't they Rebel this is a question that should have occurred to every American schoolchild when studying the Civil War and slavery. Why didn't they Rebel the truth of the matter is they did more than one third of the population in the south in the eighteenth Century or enslaved people in the 1943 Book American negro slave revolts historian Herbert aptheker estimated. There were over 250 rebellions of enslaved people in the US between 1619 and 1865 some historians put that number over 300. So rebellion was a lot more common than we were led to believe and even if enslaved people weren't taking apart in an armed Uprising many would fight back in small ways painting food work slowdowns feigning injury. Damaging equipment and so forth the new world had slave rebellions basically as long as there were people enslaved. They're the first documented Rebellion taking place on San Domingo on Christmas Day 1522 some rebellions managed to make it into the history books and pop culture like the seizure of the Amistad when a boat full of kidnapped Africans over through their captors and took control of the ship to both win their freedom and be memorialized in a film by Steven Spielberg. The first recorded slave revolt in the United States happened an hour down the road from me in Gloucester Virginia in 1663. White indentured servants included enslaved Africans in their plan to do away with their master and be free another servant betrayed them and was rewarded with his freedom. It would be nearly twenty-five years as far as we know off. Before the first all black slave revolt which again took place in Virginia. The largest slave rebellion outside the United States was the successful Insurrection of black slaves that overthrew French rule and abolished slavery in Saint domingue establishing the agenda nation of Haiti that proved unequivocally that the enslaved could defeat their captors and live free that precedent frightened and slavers on the mainland suck slave owners actively repressed any sign of rebellion laws dictating when where and how slaves could congregate were enacted to prevent Insurrection and quavo light paranoia. It's the same reason the enslaved were forbidden from learning to read or write words spread ideas and your captives May develop repetto Mania wage medical condition and let this make you grateful your doctor actually had to go to school the mental illness that caused black slaves to want to run away. Yeah, that's what these folks told themselves in case you thought the narrative myth of the happy slave was a recent invention. With Plantation populations under tight control Insurrection would tend to come from the cities or parts of the country where there were lots of small farms rather than one big one. We don't have time today to talk about all three hundred rebellions. We'll just hit on some of the ones that are most likely to make you ask why you're high school history textbook included between zero and one slave rebellion. Well at the same time definitely mentioning white John Brown at Harpers Ferry. Records are a bit spotty for our first subject the Stono Rebellion in South Carolina in 1793. History is colored both by the mouth of the teller and the ear of The Listener with their preconceptions, and we only have one firsthand contemporary account. Early on a late-summer Sunday morning 20 enslaved people gathered near the Stono River Why Sunday morning a recently passed law required all woke up men to carry firearms with them to church on Sunday. So the rebels made their move when the men and at least some of the guns would be elsewhere.

Louis Lewis Sheridan leary died of his wounds the following morning. He was one of the guys in the rifle house. He got shot and they picked up within a week. Articles about the rate at harpers ferry made headlines across the country. The Baltimore American reported that John Brown showed no signs of weakness. Even with the gallows staring in full in the face. John remained so dignified. After being captured slave owners praised him once. They saw him in person. One pro slavery man said quote. Captain John Brown has coolest daring persistency, still faith and patients and firmness of will and purpose unconquerable, certainly is was one of the best planned and executed conspiracies that ever failed.

The Kansas Nebraska Act was passed. You didn't even have data officially. Shit eighteen fifty four year. Lord Jesus Christ the Kansas Nebraska Act was passed. It allowed each territory to decide the issue of slavery on the basis of popular sovereignty. And that summer tension between northerners and southerners. What was that an all time high? If you can imagine this others were convinced if the New Territories became slave states, a domino effect would lead to future Western states to vote pro slavery. WHAT A nightmare scenario!.

"So John, shipped pork and flour, and there was distributed equally amongst the black families. And then in June eighteen, forty nine, he moved with his family to North Elba, a he surveyed their lands held farming help resources. He became a friend with many of the families. Java later said North Elba was his favourite home and that he wanted to be buried there. And eight Congress passed a fugitive, the fugitive slave act in this game federal authorities the power to reclaim fugitive slaves in the north. John Was Livid? He converted his role warehouse into a station for the underground railroad in eighteen fifty one, he organized forty five futures, slaves, and free black men to establish the League of Gilead us. I think he gave arms to each member, so he aren't arms forty five black. And told them to attack any Federal Marshal, marshals, southerners, or slave catchers in the area. It's amazing. So fucking crazy. Because if you're like if you are if you are like just a a free black person at that point, you are like Jesus Christ. This is fucking Tara I.

"Mike God, what? Well. It's time to to your beating taxes. Well look who's in the red. Do you have any abuse right officers? Should I get to the lashings? So, he told judging needed to be lashed, and they went out to the barn where the punishment was given. But then when he was done lashing John, Junior John Forced John Junior to whip him until he had received the balance of his account. This is a very questionable I mean. I don't think it helps. All right now. You beat the shit out of your old man. What Now, you may have taken pants gear that, but now beat the living crap out of your old man all right. Let's do this and we're going to do this every year on Christmas I hit. You deserve to be hit and when you're done hitting me then you deserve to be hit. You got it and we keep going. I feel like this is a trick to make me go one over now. John Junior wouldn't realize until years later. This was his father's version of spiritual self-flagellation. Whatever close your boat? After a while, John began punishing kids less, and he realized there was more effective ways to punish kids and came to regret lashings so. That's good. That's good I. Don't know why we went there, but it's good that he learned. He was a very devoted father. While alone. He nursed almost all the kids through scarlet fever, smallpox and other illnesses. He would stay up all night beside their beds to sure. The fire is tended to to keep them more. Well. I don't know if I'd do that. Now now. I'm. Up for everything for my kid, but then staying up all night. That sir I like to get sleep. You know what I mean. That's why you don't have thirty children. You're going to be running at A. A little hospital eventually. That's why that's why someone needs to like. Just be like you know what I tried the other. PULLING OUT! Not Believable was all upset. That is what is.

The S in USA stands for swindle
"Lipson recently made the leap from Indonesia to America and he's starting to think that the in USA stands for swindle. It was meant to be a simple day out. Hirakata gopher drive have lunch come home but in the United States and certainly here in Washington. Dc nothing is simple. Everything it seems is in fact a swindle. I The hire car online. The quote was about sixty five Australian dollars eminently reasonable so I booked but going in to pick out the keys the price had inexplicably gone up to one hundred fifteen dollars mice double. I had chosen to limit liability for about ten dollars but the Matt's still didn't add up. This is life in America where the price never the price taxes fees and surcharges and never included in the quoted price. Even when you ask what you need to pay for Sandwich or concert ticket or phone plan your told one price and then watch the cash register magically throw up an extra ten or twenty percent and to be clear. This is before the much maligned cheap. Anyway I booked the car. It was a Friday afternoon and the Hayek Office was about to close for some reason. It was open every day until seven pm except Fridays when I closed up shop at five so I asked if I could prepay for an additional hour or two on Saturday since returning the car by four thirty in the afternoon would limit our options for such saying. I was told that would incur. Another one hundred fifteen dollars even for a few extra minutes a full day's charge of course that's why the office shuts at five on Fridays. They know people are more likely to book an extra day or get distracted a winery and perhaps missed the deadline. Like we almost did so to swindles before. I even put the key in the ignition. We drove to hop ferry and historic town. Where in eighteen fifty nine abolitionist John Brown through gasoline on the flames of civil war by instigating a revolt by armed slaves. We set the map to the visitor's center and just before we arrived Lo and behold a toll booth. It was thirty dollars to drive onto the side told myself well. We pay for National Parks in Australia. So I suppose it's reasonable. He will give him some great assistance by a real American Park Ranger in a real smokybear style hat. He very helpfully pointed out shuttle bus. That would take us to the side but as we shuttle past the toll booth and down the road to town. I realized this was the same road. We'd just driven on anyone. In the know had just driven straight to town and avoided the thirty dollar fee swindled number three felt even worse because smokey. The Bay was the culprit. We bought some hot dogs for lunch and then with tip paid double what the number on the chalkboard suggested then eventually got shuttle bus back to the car and headed for home since we had a bit of time pass leave. I thought why don't take the scenic. Route turned off the freeway but they once again and other toll booth scenic route was in fact a toll road no warning sign of a fee ahead no way to reverse out turnaround just slot for our credit card. Another nine dollars enough to three kilometers and other toll booth and other credit card slot and another six dollars as a straight talking strengthen. It's hard not to get upset at these constant traps here in the United States. After my time in Indonesia wrongly concluded it was the Bali's street Hawker had to keep your eye on it turns out it's the overly polite American. That's the biggest threat to your wallet. I guess it's the logical conclusion of capitalism running rampant combined with undefended social services like national parks and roads. Even smokey the bear has had to become. Shall we say street smart to keep honey on the table? It seems you have to be shock just to get by. Gold knows how someone who struggles with English or numbers would cope. Maybe they don't and it makes a little more sense to me. How the nation's most famous shock a dealmaker who repeatedly dotted contractors secured? Hundreds of millions of dollars in questionable tax breaks and delivered subpar apartments to customers could be revived by his supporters as a very stable genius
Is BP's Shift for Real?
"Story number one is all about be p the P is of course for petroleum now be once said it wanted to get beyond petroleum more than a decade ago that strategy failed and now BP has a new CEO Bernard Looney. He came in recently in announced almost immediately that the company is going to try to offset or eliminate all of its carbon emissions by twenty fifty. Looney also said that he wants a fifty percent reduction in carbon intensity and he says ep will just depend less on oil production for its revenue and continue to ramp up in clean energy. And finally it's going to support a carbon taxes or climate related policy and pull out any money from climate denying trade organizations. Now this is a big deal for a company that has a very spotty record but there are not many details yet and loonie says that they'll those details will come in September so jigger we know that you used to work for BP. We have seen this movie before when BP attempted to rebrand beyond petroleum in the early two thousands. Is this any different? Yeah I think it is different right. So what about it? I think what happened under John Brown. Was that there was a realization on. John. Brown's part that this was a megatrend the BP had to figure out that it didn't know what it was doing but it really had to figure it out and John. Was Lord Browne actually. I was very dedicated to doing it. You Know Tony Hayward Org remind us who lured Brown is so Lord. Browne was the longest the loudness CEO and VP history. I think he was. Ceo for twenty years he found the prudhoe. Bay Alaska Find Which is really what made. Bp As a corporation and became CEO in the late eighties and busy never missed a quarterly earnings report. Until sort of the end of his tenure was heralded as probably one of the most powerful oil. Ceo's in modern times and and you know when you think about the people came after him right Tony Hayward and others Bob Dudley was actually my boss before I left. Bp Solar And so it was one of those things where where people ridiculed John Brown after? He laughed thought that he was distracted by non oil pursuits and the beyond petroleum stuff. And I think what the data shown is at pretty much every single unconventional oil project that BP has embarked on In the last ten years has lost money pretty much every single one and they are now worried that what the krona virus and everything else going on that oil prices might actually stay it forty fifty dollars a barrel forever because we've hit peak demand. Which was you know another artifact that was crafted by BP Guy Right so one of my bosses at BP was tool Aria. Who's now at the Cambridge Energy Research Group and and they you know he's crafted this peak demand scenario which. I think a lot of oil people believe now that we're never going to get above. Let's call it one hundred and three million barrels a day of oil so these are macro fundamental trends that BP is now starting to come to grips with saying their oil and business is actually fundamentally Not Profitable for future oil finds that they're looking for now. Bob Dudley the former CEO who Looney took over the company from you mentioned in a recent episode. His interview with Jason Board off of the Columbia Energy Exchange podcast. And you criticize him for that interview saying that he really wasn't in touch with the reality of the changing energy markets today. So Bob Dudley. What did he do at BP? And how might looney change that? So Bob Dudley came through the Amoco side of the business and then when BP Amoco merged in the ninety eight. I think it was twenty. Eight is when he joined. Bp At the time B. P. was all about gas. I mean it was a long time ago now but but Natural gas was a waste fuel. It was not counted in reserves. Right so when you went to a stock analyst and they care deeply in the oil industry about reserve replacement ratio. Natural gas wasn't allowed to be counted in that today. Exxon Mobil seventy percent of their reserve place ratio is natural gas. So that was Bob Dudley's education right. It was really the power of gas. And that's what you know Lord Browne of inculcated in him and you know and then he went to Russia he you know our assets and BP were taken over by the government and then he fled in the middle of the night and like had to be kept in a secret location because people feared for his life. I mean those are the kinds of experiences that shaped Bob Dudley. And but to this day he's really just a natural gas fan. He just believes very strongly that the way. Bp gets there in this changing world is by converting everything to gas. Catherine you sat down and you watched Bernard loonies speech. What did he say? And what feels different to you? Yes so interestingly he just got this job. A couple of weeks ago He started at BP as an entry level engineer in early in his career nineteen ninety-one or something so he's grown up in that company so he knows a lot about the company so two weeks into being the CEO isn't starting a job without knowing anything about it. And I spoke to Mary Street. A friend of mine who works at BP. She's a senior vice president of communications and External Affairs. And she said he is setting a new direction Of course the double is in the details of how that's going to be executed but the speech was pretty impressive to his employees and investors and stakeholder community. Which is they're going to be reimagining. Energy reinventing EP and performing wild transforming. That's how he put it. And they have ten main goals or aims as he says five of them are internal so they wanna get to net zero across their operations on an absolute basis by twenty fifty or earlier they WanNa get to net zero on carbon in their oil and gas production by twenty fifty or sooner they wanna cut their carbon intensity of their products that they sell by fifty percent by twenty fifty or sooner they need to install methane measurement on all of their processing sites and reduced intensity by fifty percent and they want to increase the proportion of investment into non oil and gas businesses over time. And they're even saying that is going to increase while their oil and gas investment is going to decrease and then there are other five goals. Those are sort of the five internal goals the five external goals are that they want to more actively advocate for Pie policies that support at zero including carbon pricing. And what they would do is shift dollars from reputational advertising so all those ads you see on tv about how awesome oil and gas are. Those funds would be shifted into policy advocacy. They would incentivize their employees to you know to deliver on some of these goals. They would set expectations for relationships with trade associations. And that's gonNA come out later. This month and analysis of what trade associations they want to still affiliate with and which ones they can no longer affiliated with based on this new direction They want to be recognized as being very transparent and align with all these disclosure groups to make sure that people know what they do remember. They have had people protesting outside of their headquarters every day for a very long time And then they want to launch a new team to help others decarbonised and to look for New Investments. So with these ten aims. He's really serious about this and I think it is setting. A new trajectory for the company will be really interesting to see in September. What the details of that are and how they do plan to go to net zero on the carbon intensity and all that

"john brown" Discussed on Behind the Bastards
"And the foundation new country needs to be black liberal. Yeah so oh yeah. There's some weird stuff to his plans to. He's not perfect male. I read a quote even though he's co-signed but he's Claude God. Yeah he's he's fought he's flawed and I think this quote from midnight rising by Tony Horwitz makes it clear kind of both. What was neat about what he was doing there? And what was a little problematic automatic. John Brown cited this infamous ruling in his constitution's preamble which explained why a new government was needed to protect our persons property lives and liberties but the forty eight articles articles followed. Were less concerned with rights than with the command. Structure of Brown's highly militarized state the role of its week. President and Congress was mainly to advise a powerful commander in chief who could tap the. The Treasury is needed for money and valuables captured by honorable warfare. Article Twenty five was directed towards another. Preoccupation of Brown's it forbade filthy conversation conversation indecent behavior intoxication and unlawful intercourse. The constitution was read aloud at Chatham debated and signed the same day. Every man was anxious to have his named the head wrote one of Brown's Iowa party but the delegate showed distinctly less enthusiasm two days later when they reconvened to elect officials. The black men nominated for the presidency declined to stand stand in the post was left vacant along with many others. Only two congressmen were appointed in. The cabinet was filled by Iowa recruits round surprisingly was elected by acclamation as commander in chief chief. So so you're right there's like it's like okay and stuff in there your filthy conversation What did he say unlawful intercourse? I yeah intoxication. I wouldn't have done well. He's a little bit you would. There are people who will compare John Around. Yeah Gee there's people who will compare John Brown to Osama bin Laden and it's one hundred percents. Obviously what he was fighting for was better. You're not one hundred percent off. He was a long bearded uncompromising religious fundamentalist Who is willing to kill for his beliefs? Now Brown grew up poor and again would he was fighting. Fighting about was fundamentally more moral than would would you know and also brown didn't attack civilians like He. He understood they were going to die but he that you didn't make them as target but like there are some parallels he is a religious fundamentalist. Not In a fun way no police. He's the fuck you can't say Fox 'cause you can't fuck and you there's no there's no drinking. Yeah there's no doubt you know it's it's a marker of how fucked the Times are. Yeah John John. Brown is still a one hundred percent the best guy white man in the country. He's the best one the fuck release more ways than one and and not a great time not to listeners. If you look young John Brown looks a lot like eager from young Frankenstein. He absolutely lutely looks like eager from young Frankenstein To an extent that's bizarre bizarre. Yeah continue in December of eighteen fifty eight. As Brown's Brown's plans for an invasion of the south matured. He was suddenly presented with another opportunity to strike a blow against slavery. A Missouri slave named Jim Daniels found him in Kansas and told him that he and several other slaves were about to be sold in needed. Brown's help John gathered a force of eighteen insurgents and set out from Missouri where they carried out a highly illegal rate on a farmhouse in freed read five slaves at gunpoint. They proceeded next to another farm and freed five more slaves. A small group of Brown's raiders also broke into another home freeing a single slave and shooting Owner dead. The Raiders Stole Oxen Horses Food Clothing and also captured two white hostages before they crossed back into Kansas. This sparked rage across the south and the governor of Missouri as well as President Buchanan offered rewards. For Brown's capture many moderate abolitionists were also unhappy with Brown. They felt it. Invading a southern state stealing property. Killing a slave owner was a step too far in a letter to the New York. Tribune Brown mocked these people pointing out that the previous may force of pro slavery militiamen had killed five. Anti Slavery re-settlers in Kansas. There'd be no outcry he noted but when he freed eleven human beings the government and many people where he wrote filled with holy horror which is a solid point. Yeah so Brown was confronted on the road by eighty pro slavery militiamen. He had only twenty two minute his band but they charged the pro slavery forces and caused them to flee in panic brown captured several horses and took more prisoners by February of eighteen fifty nine rounded escape Kansas fleeing the law all the while he succeeded in leading his group across Iowa and onto a boxcar headed for Chicago the freed slaves made it from there to Detroit where they were taken by ferry to Canada. One of the freed women gave birth along the away. She named her child John Brown. That's dope that's a fucking dope story right very very cool shadow Detroit Yeah that yeah now. The notoriety of Brown's rate energized his backers secret six several of whom had started to wane in their enthusiasm for his cause. More money money started to pour in and Brown spent. The rest of Eighteen fifty-eight gradually moving a small force of men in a large stockpile of arms and ammo onto a small farm that he had rented in the outskirts harpers ferry the whole story of how they did. This is rather fascinating in midnight. Rising breaks it down in granular detail. I really recommend that really fucking cool. It is is cool but the focus of our story. Today is the man John Brown and not the details of the attack on harpers ferry. The plan failed Brown and his men succeeded in taking possession of the armory but they held it for less than two days. Ironically the first fatality of the raid was a free black man who was shot in the dark on accident just was a big tragedy. John's sons Oliver and Watson were killed during the fighting and in fact of the nineteen men who went with Brown to harpers ferry. Ten were killed or fatally wounded four townspeople were also killed old and more than a dozen militiamen and. US Marines were wounded marines. Who finally bring him? Not The proudest moment in the Marine Corps Century Yeah now John Brown was badly injured but taken alive and he survived long enough to stand trial he was obviously guilty by the laws of the time. The trail is mostly significant difficult because it provided John with a chance to speak to the nation and justify his actions the speech he gave before being sentenced was considered by Ralph Waldo Emerson to have been one of the greatest. Hey the speeches in American history. Oh Yeah Oh yeah when accidentally selection from it now had I inferred in the manner which I admit and which I admit it has been fairly proved for. I admire the truthfulness and candor of the greater portion of the witnesses who had testified in this case had I so inefficient in behalf of the rich. The powerful. The intelligent elegant the so-called great or behalf of any of their friends either father mother brother sister wife or children or any of that class and suffered and sacrificed what I have in this interference. It would have been all right. And every man in this court would have deemed it an act worthy of reward rather than punishment the court knowledge is I suppose the validity of the law of God. I see a book kissed here which is supposed to be the Bible or at least the New Testament that teaches me that all things whatsoever that I would that men should do to me. I should do even so to them. It teaches teaches me further to remember them that are in bonds as bound with them. I endeavored to act upon that instruction I say I am yet too young to understand that God is any respect of persons. I believe that to have interfered as I have done. And as I have always freely admitted I have done on behalf of his despised. Poor was not wrong but right now if it is deemed necessary that I should forfeit my life for the furtherance of the ends of Justice and mingle my blood further with the blood of my children and the blood of millions in this slave country whose was rights are disregarded by wicked cruel and unjust enactments. I submit so let it be done. I mean Fuck Ya lifetime. There's your movie right there baby. Come on uh-huh what the fuck good speech is a good fuck in speech. Yeah I like what he points out that like. Hey if done what I'd done for these poor black slaves like two of the children of any rich person in this country. I'd be held up as a hero like just don't give a fuck about these people. Consider them human like fuck you. That's a good speech speech. Yeah I mean Yuck about Hashtag. No filter man. John Brown was executed by hanging. On December second eighteen fifty nine last words the up his last words written on a scrap of paper and handed to a jailer. Where I John Brown 'em now quite certain? The crimes of this guilty land can never be purged away but with blood he would prove to be very right the. US civil war would start a little more than a year later. John Brown's raid was seen by many at the time and by many historians today as one of the primary sparks of that war from the Smithsonian magazine quote. Had John Brown's rounds raid not occurred. It is very possible that the eighteen sixty election would have been a regular to party contests between Anti Slavery. Republicans and pro slavery. Democrats says City University of New York. Historian Rian David Reynolds of John. Brown abolitionist the Democrats would have probably one. Since Lincoln received just forty percent of the popular vote around one million votes less than his three opponents or the Democrat crat split over slavery Republican candidates. Such as William seward were tarnished by their association with abolitionists Lincoln at the time was regarded as one of his party's more conservative options. John Brown and was in effect a hammer that shattered Lincoln's opponents into fragments says Reynolds because Brown helped to disrupt the party system. Lincoln was carried victory which in turn led eleven states seceding from the Union Union. This in turn led to the civil war. Yeah so that's John Brown. So do we think that yeah. His religion kind of influences no fucks given attitude because he essentially like no matter what he did on Earth Earth as a as a living being. His fate was decided at birth. So do you think that. Maybe his like no fuss given attitude towards like I'm GonNa do risk risk at all but also like like you think that had some influence on his ethos allergy as a human. I don't think he actually believed that aspect of Calvinism albinism very strongly I get the feeling from him. He doesn't act like a guy who thinks everyone around him is going to hell. But but I don't know I may be wrong on that what I'll say I think more than anything. The reason he acts the way he does is that he is absolutely convinced about everything that he I believe that he is one hundred percent right. Yeah and that made him probably pretty insufferable to be around. It made him a horrible horrible husband. Yes not great. Great father probably a very strange friend. Yeah great abolitionist. The but but a great abolitionist and the man the only any white man who was willing to do the thing that was so clearly necessary at that point in time like somebody needed to go into the south and just start fucking shooting over this stuff like. That's it needed to happen. I mean he's fucked up like we don't want things to have to go that way but that's what had to happen like he was the woken white man of the eighteen hundreds which is he's complimented an insult. Yeah it's an insult to everyone else. But yeah he's a remarkable oh person and You can see why people as varied as like abortion clinic bombers and Willem sprints and who was outraged raged about the the deportations by ice in the child concentration camps. Why people both of those people can see something in him? Inspirational Yeah and I I go back and forth myself as to like. What would John Brown be today because like obviously if he'd been like a hardcore hard core fundamentalist religious person you might assume he would be one way but I also kind of get the feeling of John that if he'd grown up into different era he might have been in a fundamentalist of something else? Like this is the kind of guy it kind of depended on how he was raised but whatever he was like. I don't know I think he. I think more more than anything because there were a lot of Calvin Ists who were slave owning assholes like a lot of like like religious people like like Bible believing Christians in this period who used it as a justification for their slavery so I think that well he was a fundamentalist religious man. The core of what John Browne was was a respecter of human woman dignity and freedom and his outrage at what was being done to blacks in America. I think he would be I. I think the core of his personality were he alive. In a modern age would be outrage at injustice rather than any particular religious ideology. I do feel that about him. Yeah I'm not sure what he would have picked. Sorry I mean I feel like after hearing this entire thing I feel like that is kind of a very accurate. Yeah interpretation of him. Yeah but yeah. Yeah I mean very definitely herwig definitely flawed definitely. He did what was necessary. Indefinitely was the only one to really do it in the way he did. Yep Emt and is even you know you can be flawed but if you're the only one doing the thing that needs to be done that's all that really matters in the end. Yeah Yep so. That's John Brown John F. in Brown if you would be really pissed at me using fuck so much in this episode celebrating him but Oh yeah he's the fuck police I forgot is the fuck police. But he's also dead now so fuck it like he's GonNa get angry at me..

"And You keep him down so we thought this was very important on like a level of building morale in this army. He was seeking to make now obviously fleeing from the law and raising funds to form a guerilla army did not leave leave much time for Brown to see his wife and family. He begged his wealthy supporters to donate money to help them make ends meet. He wrote one donor. I have no other income for their support and my wife if being good economist and a real old fashioned businesswoman. She has gone through. The two past. Winters are open cold house unfinished outside and not plastered. So it's miserable for America. Camera Sucks. Yeah Mary's life is fucking trash shows. She did not complain often but she was clearly miserable. As a result of her husband's chosen vocation in letters to her brown admitted that his work had left her in a kind of widowed state. Already dead. Ed Yeah Yeah. She is abandoned. Yeah sorry for the remaining years of his life yeah. It was rare for him to spend more than a couple of days at a time with his family in in March of eighteen fifty seven. Mary sent John Letter informing him that their sons had committed themselves to learn and practice war. No more so. She's like she's like really. Yeah they're done with this shit. They're like she. She she stepping in and then. I'm sure John was like yeah. You're right that's fine now. He didn't do editing. Well Kinda I mean. He replied that it was not at my solicitation that they engaged at the first so He says it wasn't my decision that they did it and they don't all come to fight with him. After this any also seems to have like felt bad after that letter several days later he sent his two year old daughter Ellen Bible an inscribed in it in remembrance of her father whose care and attention she was deprived in her infancy really really really really sad yet. Sad Dad it's sad. My Mom's name is ellen so I feel that harder. Yeah well you know. It's it's one of those things Like like what are you. What do you like if this was like if he if he was abandoning his family? Like this to make it in Hollywood. I'd be like Dick move with Bro but like it is slavery like it's the worst thing this country did well tied for worst with the genocide like kind of worth abandoning ending your family over. I hate to say it like it is slavery like Shit. You know It sucks for Ellen. It sucks for Mary. Six of John Brown's sons had fought in Kansas. As I said one was killed two wounded did and the others were pretty traumatized by the experience but not all of them had in fact committed to study war no more owen-brown traveled with his father in eighteen fifty eight as he sought taught final support for his impending invasion of the south. Now by this point Brown's plan for an insurgent war on the south had evolved rather than taking time to establish a guerilla army and a string of forts. He decided to assault the town of harpers ferry which contained the largest armory in the country. Probably had more guns than any other place in America. Now Brown believed that harpers very was a defensible position. And that he'd be able to use its hundred thousand firearms to train and equip the army of slaves. He was sure would flock there. Once word of his efforts got out in April eighteen fifty eight John Brown met Harriet. Tubman who at that point had made eight secret trip to Maryland and led dozens of slaves to freedom. Brown was deeply impressed by Tubman and and this is like a problematic woke nece. I don't know what you call this. He referred to her as a man in all of his writings and talking her and he did it because he respected her so much much. He said that she was naturally the most man that he had ever met So he's he's saying set of respect but it's kind of problematic it's like an hundreds woke compliment implement but a two thousand eighteen like dude. Yeah he also referred to her is General Tubman which is less problematic Appalachian of respect and and you know for her part. Harriet Tubman equally taken with John Brown. Kate Larsen Tub. biographers says Tubman thought Brown was the greatest white man who ever lived so he is very popular for his dedication with the like sort of leading figures of black liberation in this period. Yeah I would say he got co Oh he got cosigned by Frederick Douglass an Harriet Tubman. Yeah yeah pretty solid those pretty solid cosigns. Yeah yeah good. Like if he'd written the book good names to have on the jacket. Yeah now. John Brown solicited. Both Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman. For help with his planned attack on the South Tubman was unable to help due due to illness and may have also been unwilling to help because she was worried that if it failed it would expose the underground railroad and Frederick refused because he rightly viewed the attempt as suicidal lunacy. He warned Brown that he was going into a perfect steel trap and that he would not get out alive so Douglas clearly respects. Brown is doing but I'm just not willing to kill myself. I self for this. I think he was doing a lot of stuff. Outside of that the right call for sure in May eighteen fifty eight John Brown and thirty five of of his followers convened in Chatham Canada to get Hunky. Is that hard to get to Canada. And you're up in in New England. It's right there. All right. They all over the place. He's like he he travels around. It just seems like yeah. He's moving around a lot. I mean it just hard enough to travel in twenty nineteen. Well Yeah but like you're in if you're in Illinois like getting up to Canada it's like going to fuck in Sacramento from Los Angeles. Like it's not really a big deal It's like right there. Well I don't like Sacramento either. I'd rather be in Canada but I'm just making a point so in May eighteen fifty eight John Brown and thirty five his followers can mean in Chatham Canada host a constitutional convention in order to create a new American government. See by this point the failures of the existing government to do anything about slavery In a recent Supreme Court ruling that black people had no claim to the rights guaranteed by the Constitution had convinced John that a whole new government mm-hmm it needed to be established just Bazeley decides our constitution is to like stained by the evil of slavery to continue and what we part of what we need to do is like build a new country basically.
"john brown" Discussed on Behind the Bastards
"A colony for freed blacks. The ideological war over slavery had reached a fever pitch eighteen fifty with the implementation of the fugitive slave law now. This law was a craven act of political compromise. By American moderates to the demands of the slaveholding states. It brutally punished anyone caught aiding asleep slave in mandated that all citizens helped capture escaped slaves in eighteen. Fifty four another act of Congress pushed northern abolitionists even further from the Smithsonian magazine quote under pressure from the South and it's democratic allies in the North Congress opened the territories of Kansas and Nebraska slavery under a concept called popular sovereignty the more northerly Nebraska was in little danger of becoming a slave state. Kansas however was up for grabs pro slavery advocates the meanest in most desperate of men armed with revolvers bowie knives rifle and cannon. They are not only thoroughly organized but underpaid from slaveholders. John Brown junior wrote to his father poured into Kansas from Missouri. Anti slavery settlers begged for guns and reinforcements among the thousands of abolitionists. Who left their farms workshops or schools to respond to the call where John Brown and five of his sons Braam self arrived in Kansas in October? Eighteen fifty five driving a wagon loaded with rifles. He picked up in Ohio and Illinois determined. He said to help defeat Satan and his legions. How I this is the first time? John's John's going to have a chance to confront slavery violently and defeat Satan and his legions. Yeah he sure does now bleeding. Kansas as the conflict came to be known proved to be one of the bloodiest pre-civil war chapters in America's battle over slavery. Something like two hundred people were killed but possibly hundreds more it was also the event that launched John Brown on on the path that would guarantee him several paragraphs in American history textbooks for years to come shortly after Brown arrived in Kansas pro slavery population of the state elected legislature. HIV is shameless electoral fraud. This body voted into law extreme pro slavery regulations which among other things punish the expression of anti slavery views with two years years of hard labor one pro slavery editor at the time made the goals of the slaveholding cans clear quote. We will continue to tar and feather drown Lynch and hang every white livered evert abolitionist who dares to pollute our soil. So these people are like we want to extend slavery here. We're willing to fight for what we believe in and we'll kill all. Oh you weak. Like shitty abolitionist free. stater like assholes like we don't give a fuck we'll murder you and the government kind of just let this happen. Because it doesn't want to Piss off the south which is the most powerful voting bloc in the United States at the moment because eighteen hundreds America. Yeah kind of modern American Taoist America. Yeah now Brown's first armed action. Kansas occurred in defense of a group of abolitionist Kansan who held their own Congress and opposition to the pro slavery Kansan Congress Congress. Brown's militia showed up with guns revolvers swords powder and caps to defend the vote against pro slavery raiders from Missouri. Who had shut down other similar events no enemy enemy appeared but in May eighteen fifty six pro slavery militiamen sacked the city of Lawrence Kansas? A known abolitionist hotbed. They burned and looted and murdered their political opponents at the same time news reached Kansas. That Charles Sumner. The most prominent abolitionist in the Senate had been beaten nearly to death on the floor of Congress by South Carolina Congressman armed with a cane. John Brown himself. And Yeah. Yeah it's a fuck ups chapter of history beating him with a cane in front of people and nobody's doing anything. Yeah I mean. Eventually they pulled them apart but it was like three years before sumner could retake his seat. He was so badly injured. Brace Horror Yeah so John Brown was pissed off at. This is furious about the massacre in Lawrence. He was furious but what had happened to sumner and he was pissed. More than anything that no abolitionists. None of the moderates were doing a God damn thing about these. He's fucking pro slavery assholes and all the violence that they were just allowed to do for some reason. He was pissed so over the course of several weeks brown form two sons and a group of local volunteers into an anti slavery militia. His goal was not merely to defend abolitionist from violence of pro slavery mobs. He wanted to take the fight to them when one of his neighbors abors urged caution. Round replied caution caution Sir. I'm eternally tired of hearing the word. Caution it is nothing but the word of cowardice on May twenty fourth. John Brown select group of his men including several of his sons went on a raid across a series of farms. Papua Tomi Creek Kansas. They dragged a five pro slavery advocates out of their homes in the dead of night and hacked them to death with swords. Now these are generally described as broad swords. But I've seen pictures of them and they seem to. You've been closer to Roman Gladys's And what does that mean. It's like a short sword. It's broad bladed. Short sword come come listeners because nobody and the five congrats now you get different attitudes on this based on like Geico you hear it from because this is a very brutal. Yeah he he drags these people out of their house. They're unarmed and he murders them with fucking sorts fucking swords. Yeah so depending on who you read. You'll come to different attitudes about what exactly this sort of this counts as Smithsonian magazine says this by almost any definition. The pottery killings were a terrorist act intended to sow fear in slavery's defenders Brown viewed slavery as a state of war against blacks assistant system of torture rape oppression and murder and saw himself as a soldier in the army of the Lord Against Slavery says one scholar Kansas Brown's trial by fire his initiation into violence his preparation for real war so not every historian agrees with calling the pot. Tommy massacre an act of terrorism and a piece of the National Archives. A guy named Paul singled men makes. It's this argument. Kansas Bleeding Kansas as it is known was in the midst of a civil war between eighteen. Fifty five and eighteen sixty about two hundred men would be killed in Kansas not all were politically motivated. Aided and historians disagree on what constitutes a political killing but even the most conservative scholar of this violence finds fifty-six killings that were tied to slavery in politics. I think this number is low and that most after the two hundred deaths were actually politically motivated tied to slavery and bleeding Kansas but the actual number of political killings is less important than the understanding that in Kansas. There was a violent civil war. Being fought over slavery men on both sides were killed. Brown's actions are most famous because they were five killings in east strategically you swords rather than guns. which would have alerted neighbors? This is the nature of guerrilla warfare. It is brutal and bloody but it is not terrorism. Oh so you use the sword. Because they're quiet. Yeah exactly and guns were allowed to ship back then. They're not quiet today. No just louder. Yeah so you know I I tend to be on the site of like it was terrorism. I I think it probably qualifies as terrorism isn't necessarily invalid. it's an act like in a guerrilla war. It's a tactic and at that point. John and his men were outnumbered numbered And they wanted to strike a blow and they wanted to scare the shit out of these people who'd been acting with impunity and I think they did it. Yeah again. Different people different opinions so the pottery massacre escalated the conflict in Kansas to a new level pro slavery forces staged what affected to a full scale invasion of the territory there were battles titles. Towns were sacked and yeah a lot of people were killed. John Brown Gandhi reputation during the fighting as a leader of cunning and skill and earned the Appalachian Captain Brown from muncie fought a grinding insurgent campaign. That made him a household name. In much of the north there were stories of like he led this like spirited defense of this town that you know the eventually lost but they DESCR inflicted a lot of casualties on the enemy and like made it really bloody for them. He successfully outmaneuvered this big force. A pro slavery guys took like they surrendered to him and he took a Bowie knife from the guy in charge. So he's like and their stories about this like journalist. Meet him when he's out in the field and like write about him and his band of guerrilla warriors ears and stuff and he becomes very famous in the north. And it's you know it's a again. It's a brutal guerrilla. War wants his sons during this point is captured and executed by pro slavery forces sources Two of his sons are wounded. So it's like it's rough but he walks out of bleeding. Kansas a national hero really now win the violence in Kansas subsided. John Brown decided to use his new found fame to drum up support and funding to open up a new front in the war against slavery. He wrote his son. Jason a letter saying I have only a short short time to live only one death to die and I will die fighting for this cause Brown now. A wanted man traveled the northern states dressed in the gear of guerrilla fighter drumming up funds and support for his war on slavery. He showed off the Bowie knife. He taken from a pro slavery militia leader in played up the derring-do involved in his flight from the law from the book. Midnight night rising quote brandishing captured billion. I've strapped just above his boot or loading revolver. Is he warned. A federal marshals on his trail Brown also introduced a Frisian to the genteel parlors. As of New England. I should hate to spoil these carpets. He told one Boston hostess. But you know I cannot be taken alive so he plays up this reputation. Yes great like AH action. Hero quotes really. He's absolutely cool. Guy Quotes he's absolutely action hero. And Yeah he's he's he's pretty. He's pretty hard core. He's a bad ass. Bad Ass problematic bad ass now. John spent much of the next two years. Here's yeah buying arms and raising funds to buy more arms as well as working mostly unsuccessfully to convince other white abolitionists and free blacks to sign up to fight in the army he was raising gradually he built up a network six wealthy backers all of whom were to differing degrees committed to the cause of ending slavery. These men known to history as the secret six made it possible the Brown to secure several hundred. SHARPS rifles a significant number of revolvers. And eventually five. Hundred pikes. Now Pike is basically a dagger at the end of a long spear and Brown plan to use these pike's to arm freed slaves He couldn't give them rifles right off the bat because rifles at the time. Were really complicated. If you if you know how to use news. One took a lot of training to be functional with them. He wanted to be able to arm people immediately. They had like long long like sticks with like a like a biggest. They get dagger at the end. Yeah it's like a point like a spearhead and more like a literal knife. It's kind of cool. Yeah they call them Kansas toothpicks. It was pretty cool The buoy knives are basically machetes. They had a lot of Boeing is but yeah And Brown thought number one. Like the pikes importance. We could have something to arm freed slaves with immediately when he wouldn't have time to train them right away but he also felt that immediately arming coming freed. Slaves was a critical step in their emancipation stating give a slave pike and you make him a man deprive him of the means of resistance..

"But you can't fault him for not wanting the nation to be convulsed by a bloody war yeah so for a time. John Brown approached his abolitionist through the lens of Pacifism too. But in the years after Nat Turner's rebellion the debate over for slavery turned more violent pro. Slavery Southerners saw what had happened in Virginia with Nat Turner as the culmination of their worst nightmares. The sheer number of slaves who in some areas outnumbered numbered whites terrified them. They believe that any talk of abolitionist. Deserved an immediate and violent response in eighteen thirty seven a pro slavery mob murdered Elijah. Asia lovejoy the abolitionist editor of what was effectively. An Anti Slavery Zine. They tossed his printing press into the Mississippi lovejoy had futilely armed himself in self defense events. Which William Lloyd Garrison disapproved of but which John Brown seems to have taken something of an inspiration at a meeting of Brown's Church convened a protest love joys murder? John Brown's swore a declaration here before God and the presence of these witnesses from this time. I concentrate my life to the destruction of slavery so he takes Lovejoy lovejoy murder as a rallying call and he buys a gun shortly after this point so he is so far no weapons up to this point. He was like He was he was on like his dad had been. A pacifist. was a pacifist He was a pacifist. He didn't like he had been a child during the war of eighteen twelve and he had a really negative idea idea of soldiers. Because he'd seen what they did in the areas ray like bivouacked and stuff so he was very anti-violence this starts to change after love Joyce murder he starts to think ink. Maybe violence is the only way we're going to get rid of slavery. Now Brown did not follow this declaration by joining of the abolitionist groups in his area instead he he decided to turn his large family into what amounted to an abolitionist. Insurgent Cell John Surviving children later. That recall the night. He sat down with his wife and his three oldest suns quote. He has who of us were willing to make common cause with him and doing all in our power to break the laws of the wicked and pluck of spoil out of his teeth. Are you Mary. Gary John Jason and Owen. John's wife and children all prayed with him and swore an oath to fight for slavery's defeat over the years. John would bring the rest of his enormous brewed into this anti these slavery packed boys and girls included. His relationship with his sons is fascinating to me and I think this paragraph from midnight rising makes it clear why quote none of Brown on son's adopted their fathers Orthodox faith and several openly challenged and apostasy that vexed him tremendously but all seven his unremunerated boys who survived. Childhood would take up arms against slavery they held firmly to the idea that father was right. Salmon recalled where he had lead. We were glad to follow. Every one of US had the courage of his convictions. Brown's brothers there's in laws and other Kenwood also lends support to his anti slavery Crusade. There was a brown family conspiracy. His eldest son said to break the power of slavery kids. Yeah yeah none of his kids follow him in his religion there like you kind of nuts on this but like the old dudes write about slavery that Shit fucked. They're like they're like listen. You know I can't fuck with you on on that but I'll get behind you on that. So they're like slavery shit this shit I mean like they're gonNa Right. Yeah and it's Kinda like you from John in doing this with his family that he kind of recognizes once he commits himself to this. 'CAUSE that like I'M GONNA wind up breaking the law. I'M GONNA wind up being a terrorist. I'm GONNA commit a Shitload of crimes and so i. I can't trust joining a group of people that I don't know like it's gotTa just be me and my family family like otherwise. Somebody's GonNa rat me out nepotism. Yeah Yeah I mean. I don't know if it's nepotism for terrorism. Maybe it's just east the smart way to do it But he does commit to using his family in this way. It's like hire outside and not you know. Yeah Yeah exactly. Yeah yeah it's like well. We won't make more comparisons to drug dealing but it's like what you do when you deal drugs now. For the first years of this crusade in slavery the Brown family efforts remotely limited to helping hide the slaves and for most people. This would have been more than enough. In my opinion. Anyone who helped to operate the underground railroad in that time even in a minor capacity did something heroic doc just. That was not enough for John Brown. He was clearly frustrated for years by his inability to strike any sort of direct blow against slavery this was exacerbated aided by his constant and repeated failures at business. Hey wound up at the edge of bankruptcy several times and moved his family all around the new West in search of better prospects brown tried for trading trading cattle driving surveying and even breeding racehorses provide eighteen forty. He was so broke that he could not even afford postage for his letters and he declared bankruptcy. Yeah now his attempts to find new work let him away from his family for months at a time in the letter was able to send home to his wife showed a distinct depression had gripped him. He signed unworthily yours ars above his name and referred to his wife as the Scherer of my poverty. Trials discredit and sore afflictions in nineteen forty one year. After he declared bankruptcy John's John's family was torn apart by a horrific bout of dysentery which killed four of his children including his nine year. Old Daughter. Sara and his six-year-old son. Charles so this is rough fucking life this guy now for most of the early eighteen forty S. John spent his time trying desperately to pull his family out of the financial hole he dug doc them into it wasn't until eighteen forty seven that he had meaningful contact with members of the abolition movement that year he moved to the town of Springfield Massachusetts where he convinced the money to fund a wool trading. Business Brown was bad at the job as he was bad at everything to do with money and it failed miserably. But his time in Springfield brought him into contact with a huge a number of freed blacks while he was there he met Frederick Douglass an escaped slave and renowned speaker and writer. The two had dinner in Brown's exceedingly humble home enduring that dinner. John Walked Frederick through the plans that he's been years cooking up. He unrolled a map of the allegheny mountains which run from Pennsylvania and into the southeast. He pointed out that these these mountains were filled with caves and natural fortresses. They were John Thought the perfect place for an insurgent army to hide. He told Douglas he believed the mountains had been put there by God for the emancipate of the Negro race over his dinner table. John Brown outlined an ambitious plan to use the alleghenies as base for guerrilla army. That would raid plantations free. We're slaves in send them north to swell the ranks of his army now. Douglas thought this plan was stirring but probably outside the realm of possibility so we thought it was a good idea but he didn't think it was gonNA work But he's still found himself. Deeply taken an admiration of John Brown. He described him has built for times of trouble and fitted to grapple with the flint hardships. While in Springfield Brown gained a reputation for being the exceedingly rare sort of white man who not only agitated for abolition but actually treated black people as equals in his personal in a life. John Stauffer Harvard Historian who studies the history of race in America says he stood apart from every other white in the historical record for his ability to burst free from the power of racism. Blacks were among his closest friends and in some respects. He felt more comfortable around blacks than he did around whites. So he's he's he's you'd call them woke dude he was famous yeah. He was kind of infamous among his fellow. White people for dining with black families regularly and addressing the adults as Mr and Mrs and it's a sign and how racist America was at that time he calls them Mr. My God like that's what we're dealing with in the broader culture at this point. Hey rodrigue Douglas Yeah. You don't wind up super proud of American history when you really get into the weeds of race Kinda hard to. Oh my God but not John Brown. So that's good Frederick Douglass himself said that Brown though the white gentleman is in sympathy a black man and his deeply interested in our cause as though his own soul had been pierced with the iron of slavery. So you'd call him a good ally as is the point. I'm trying to make. Yeah Yeah in eighteen forty eight Garrett Smith. A wealthy abolitionist and another good ally bought a huge chunk of land in northern New York and gave it away to a large urge group of freed slaves. He has brown to move there in order to help the new community. Get on its feet. John agreed in part because he thought that the colony in the adirondacks might be able to act as a subterranean impasse way that would effectively expand the underground railroad capacity by several orders of magnitude. He also thought it might act as the start of a chain of fortresses for the army of abolitionists. It's and free blacks. He planned to build to raid the plantations of the south. Now John Brown's plans here are not as impossible as they sound he knew that even with the large guerrilla army he could not hope to free all four million enslaved blacks but he could cause a panic and collapse. The economy's in slaveholding states as a result of that panic but unfortunately John Brown's economic reality forced him to push this plan on hold while he traveled to Europe to sell a huge pile of Wolfer his failing business he left his long suffering wife and children alone in the relatively primitive conditions of their New York farm. Now we have no evidence that John Brown was physically abusive to his wife and in fact from the evidence we have. It seems very unlikely that he was but it would be fair to say. There's not a healthy relationship and I'm going to quote again from midnight. Rising her frequently absent husband acknowledged hardships. She endured in an unusually tender letter in eighteen. Forty eighty seven note in his follies. The very considerable difference in our age and the fact that I sometimes chide you severely. The toll was evident to Richard Danna when he visited the browns. At around on-deck home. He described Mary then just thirty five as rather an invalid. So he's he's he's a horrible husband Now now in his defense. It's a hard time to raise a family. But he's not he's not good at being around Sometime now chide you severely verily. Was that the quote. Yeah Yeah. He probably probably yells at our goal setting thrifty. He's he scolds everybody. He's scolded color earlier. I don't know I think he was probably kind of quiet. SORT OF S- colder. But I I don't know about that that's just the feeling I get from him that he was the kind of like quietly furious. Yes it you and that was the worst thing but I don't know now. Brown's tour of Europe ended as per usual an economic disaster. He and his family were left. Even poorer than before. Brown Brown returned to the farm in New York and.

"Contacts it. We're back back so we were just talking about John Brown. The father now obviously like everybody was an abusive parent right by modern standards in this period of time but even by the standards of the mid and early eighteen hundreds John Brown was considered a very strict parent. And I'm going to quote again from the book midnight rising his firstborn John. Junior was required to keep a ledger listing his sins and detailing the punishment do each unfaithfulness at work earned three lashes. Disobeying Mother Brought Eight. The second born Jason had a vivid dream about pending a baby raccoon that was as kind as a kitten and described the encounter as if it had really happened. He was three three or four at the time and his father thrashed him for telling a wicked lie. Five year old ruth muddled her shoes while gathering pussy willows. And then about how she'd gotten wet her father switched me with at the willows. That had caused my sin. She recalled such a shit head. Yeah Dixie Yeah fucking rough man like Jason Kidd of vivid dream about putting a baby raccoon. Maybe like no. Don't try that yeah. Well Yeah Jason. Jason Physique Really Weird name for that era. Oh Yeah No. There's a Lotta jasons. That's like a Bible name right. Bible like a guy that hangs out at like a hip copy shop and says he's working on his screenplay. Yeah that's Jason but he goes by J when you're right you're right you're right you're right. Okay my apologies. G continue having vivid dreams about putting baby raccoons. So you agree. He should have been beaten waiting for that. That's good to know so pro abusing children who dream about raccoons. I mean he's went to I mean he it's settled it settled. John Talk Wasn't his best friend Squirrel. Well yeah but that was a real squirrel not a dream raccoon. I mean meaning that we know of. Nobody's friends with a squirrel. Nobody I've been friends with a squirrel. No you weren't yes. I was at my last place in L. A. Hand tamed a Squirrel Anderson Feeding even headed briefly. We have a sworn enemy named. That's a squirrel named Edward that we deal with every morning at my apartment complex. I know him. I don't I never named our friend Squirrel but I loved her and I hope she's OK. I hope Edwards Offs Away Continue Brown apprehended two men. He countered on the road who were stealing apples and smashed a neighbor's whiskey jug after taking just a few sips deciding the liquor had dangerous powers. Despite his severity. Freddie Brown was beloved by his children who also were called has been. He acts of tenderness. He Sang Hymns to them at bedtime recited maximums from ace and Benjamin Franklin and cared for his little folks when they were ill and was gentle with animals he warmed frozen lambs and the family washed up. As long as they're real animals like this is very weird. He's a he's a weird guy. He's a complicated complicated person In like clearly is capable of being a giant Dick as a parent to his kids in his also capable of being really loving father. He's he's he's a strange guy man but all men are any child of a brutal time. You know. People wound up rougher back then Excuse bad shit but it was a tough time to come up You try working from age twelve and losing your mom like. You're not going to be softy. So Diane John's wife died and child just like his mother. All the browns have wives the die in childbirth which again not smart on account number of kids. They're having yeah John took this very hard obviously and he and his five children moved in with another family briefly while they dealt with their grief when they returned home. John Hired a housekeeper sometimes her sixteen year old sister. Mary came along to help John Brown proposed to marry by letter several months after meeting her and they got married in July of eighteen. Thirty he is thirty. One no sorry. He is thirty three on death back then but still not that uncommon but still creepy. Yeah a year. After his wife's death he marries a woman half his age in four years older older than his oldest child. Sounds he sounds very Hollywood at this point. Well I think it's more like honestly I think with him like it's not even even like a less thing it's a I want to have a lot more kids and so the younger she is the tougher. She'll be like the Mo better her odds of surviving and yeah eh she. They would stay married the rest of John's life and she built for him. Thirteen children Back Yeah And it was not an easy marriage for her John John Brown all the time and had to do with his grumpy hating of imagination ass. I think actually she would have loved to have dealt with his grumpy ass S. more 'cause he was fucking gone most of which we're about to talk about. Yeah but for the early years of their biggest problem the time well. He came back long enough to get her knocker up again so For the first years of their marriage John was constantly on the edge of bankruptcy he spent money as quickly quickly as he made it And often a lot quicker than he could make it his like life farming heaven. The kids like businesses. Yeah he would start businesses and they'd fail So he had a bunch of failed businesses is he was terrible and everything to do with money. He's a good worker in like had a great work ethic but was just awful at making money or spending his money wisely and while John struggled to get ahead economically the United States lurched closer and closer to violence over the issue of slavery in the Year of his birth eighteen hundred nearly one fifth of the five million and people in the. US were enslaved ever since the invention of the cotton gin in seventeen ninety three the south had grown increasingly wealthy and influential in American politics but the eighteen fifties is all twelve of the United States is richest counties. Where in the south on its own? The South was the fourth largest economy on Earth for some perspective. The South in the eighteen hundreds was wealthier wealthier than California is today so all of the money's in the fucking host of the political influence. Yeah this is like yeah eighteen fifties and stuff they they just get richer and richer. Yeah the whole industrial revolution. Worldwide was driven in large part by the production of cotton by slaves in the American south. Like even down to like like the countries that have banned slavery like England Like cotton was critical for like the building boats and ships and like a lot of different factory equipment and it was all made possible by enslaved black people so the whole industrial revolution is under girded by black slavery even in the countries that didn't have slaves legal at that point which is important in out. Yeah now the sheer mass of money in the south and thus behind slavery made it impossible for most people in the eighteen thirties to imagine an end to the institution in eighteen thirty one. John Brown entered his thirties The abolition movement was growing but still firmly fringe in the context of national politics. This started to change that August when an enslaved preacher named Nat Turner gathered up a small band of his fellow slaves and launched an insurrection. Armed with hatchets knives and muskets. They executed roughly sixty white Virginians and gathered a small number of slaves to their banner like John Brown Nat Turner had also been born in eighteen. Hundred also like John. He came to view himself as something of a prophet and believed that he'd been chosen by God to bring about the end of slavery. Turner's band did not just kill slaveholders the executed women school children and even a baby in a cradle edel so nat Turner's raid is a complicated thing to talk about morally. Okay okay. What new? He's they they are they are just killing. They're killing all of the white people they come across And in terms of like sort of parsing that out and immoral context text found an interesting. CBS Article That interviewed Bruce Turner who was a great great great grandchild of Nat Turner and Rick Francis Who's a descendant of one of the slave holding families families that Turner massacred from that now. Both Turner and Francis Are Abbott Students of history who have researched their own families as well as the historical record of the rebellion Anderson Cooper Super. Put the question to them. Both is Nat Turner Hero. Yes he is says Bruce Turner because he saw an opportunity to try to correct something. That was an extremely bad evil. He believes Nat Turner. Turner was freedom fighter who started a movement that helped in the institution of slavery. Prior to the insurrection. Slave owners actually believed that the slaves were happy in their condition. He says net Turner's changed changed that Rick Francis Defender of the horrible institution practice by his forebears but he does not see nat Turner as a heroic figure Francis questions whether a desire to in slavery is what motivated Automated Turner to kill he also points out that Nat Turner and his followers killed many women and children they were a means to an end says Bruce Turner women were slave owners. Children were slave owners and the baby question mark. Yeah I mean I think what Nat Turner would say if you could bring him back and pose. That question to him is that baby would have grown up to be a slave owner almost none. None of the children of slave owning families grew up to repudiate those beliefs. It was very uncommon and Turner's argument. I think would have been something along the lines. Lines of they were all part of this institution And they didn't spare our children. So why should we spare. There's you know and this like economist. Sixty minutes with Anderson Cooper. Yeah I think so. I just found it in an article but I think it was part of Anderson Cooper's show. Yeah shut Anderson Cooper the father of my dog doc. Yeah it's a complicated story detailing man how you how you feel about how justified it was a matter of your own personal morality. I feel like you can't really a judge like no really i. I would argue that. You can't judge. I don't think you can judge the actions of an enslaved person taking action against the people who kept him in bondage No matter how terrible They seem based on the morality. You get to have a much less fucked up era. But I'M NOT GONNA I'M GONNA slam my opinions on that Turner on the audience. We have a lot of John Brown to get through so nats uprising. Did Not work out While he eventually gathered about forty slaves they failed to make it to the town of Jerusalem and its armor which is where they were headed to try to get guns white militiamen succeeded in scattering Turner's men and executing or killing. Most of them Turner's insurrection. Inspired a vicious white reprisal and gangs of armed whites murdered hundreds upon hundreds of black people and impaled their severed heads on roadsigns as a warning to others. Turner's body was decapitated quartered in skinned. His Scotland brain were sent off to be studied Because people were like why would a slave not wanna be you slave. The fat from Turner's body was rendered into wagon wheel. Greece in his skin was hand and sent off to the families of the people killed in his raid as a souvenir grace. It's this is a Lucky Eagle. Time like you really gotta remember that whenever you try to think through these people's actions and decisions and morality is is like fucking rough. How do we like did somebody write all this down like this is yeah they weren't? They weren't ashamed of it. And like if you're the fucking if you're the white oppressors who want who are doing. Who are massacring these people and chopping up nate's body like you want all of the black people who might right come across the story to know what happens when they stand up like that's part of how you oppress people this? This would have been a great time for an ad transition. It would have been like you know what doesn't oppress people the products that you're early brow. where I I know I just it would have been good no so oh? Prior to NAT Turner's uprising. Most abolitionist supported a slow piecemeal. Emancipation of enslaved blacks and sought to basically ship them to Africa or the Caribbean The Nation of Liberia was born from this basic idea. And this is like what Abraham Lincoln and others like him. Kind of would've advocated in the period prior to Nat Turner. This is about the best. You could hope four from woke white. People that they'd be like slavery is wrong but we don't want them here Now after Nat Turner abolitionists were increasingly likely to urge an immediate into the institution petition of slavery. And the figure of this new wing of the abolitionist movement was a guy named William Lloyd garrison. Who is the editor for? A newspaper. Called the liberator in Boston and now the liberators started publication eight months before Turner's revolt in Garrisons Pros could new an utterly uncompromising tone that fit in well with the era ignited by Nat Turner Garrison had nothing but contempt for the interests of his day and their advocacy of gradual reform. He wrote tell a man whose houses on fire to give a moderate alarm. I will not not equivocate. I will not excuse. I will not retreat a single inch and I will be heard so after Turner some stronger voices start to speak up up in favor of abolitionists. I like that. Yeah and not like. Oh we'll do it piece by piece we'll slowly like no. This shit has to end. It's fucked not like okay. We'll transfer to another department. None of that bullshit. Fuck this shit. Your garrison is a fuck this shit Kinda guy but he is a pacifist. He's also also a pacifist. I not say that. No no no no. I don't agree with everything garrison thought about how to end slavery but you can't fault him on a moral level he just didn't believe in violence in it. Turns out. Violence was the only way to end slavery..
"john brown" Discussed on Behind the Bastards
"Brown's life is fucking exhausting So John wrote that he was quote ambitious to perform the full labor of a man when he was already a young child and he started working fulltime at age twelve when he drove his father's father's herd of cattle one hundred miles on his own so he's just immediately doing like more work than most women today many Caterpillar and a heard. I don't know but it's probably a few dozen at least it's not like a thing that people are going to be like. How do you know the well no? There's no set number for a hurt. It's just a group of cows by the time this kid is I hate cast eight. Oh they're just stupid fat horses. That's what I think. The average average size in the US is just over two hundred. I think but that's now. The dairy herds average eighty. That's probably closer so interesting. Would've expected yeah. I don't think you would. That would have been a pretty large heard back then but I. I don't know I don't pharmacist. More than one hundred. Make up just three percent Louis than that less than less than a percent of the total dairy farm population. This is so interesting. Sorry continue farm. I grew up on about one hundred hundred head of cattle. But you don't like cows house will that's part of why I don't like cows. I live close to him for years. But I mean so you know in in all fairness to the cows I was worse to the cows and the cows were to to me because I was a little boy and it was fun to hurt them with a broomstick and a Harry Harry Potter. You you just hit him in the ASS and they run around. I would love to see Anderson with like a herd of CAL. Dogs love it and they look at me and she has herding instincts. I mean she's a little the ground but she is technically a cattle dog. She enersen you hear this. Yeah she would love that now so by the time John Brown is like a teenager By that I mean like thirteen or fourteen probably done more hard physical labor than like most of the grown men in the. US Today have done their whole lives and most stories you'll read about. John will emphasize that he was almost supernatural tough and had an endless tolerance for hard work and physical pain this was matched with a fanatic religious sort of distaste for comfort. He would later write with pride that he had never attempted to dance. Never learned any card games and their stay profound dislike like for vein and frivolous conversations. I never learned to dance himself. He footloose himself real hard. Do do man. That's hard out here. He Needs Kevin Bacon. He he did need Kevin Bacon Kevin Bacon could really and that makes makes me think if you had if you had Kevin Bacon and John Brown starring side by side in the first trimmers would have been a fun movie. uh-huh sad yeah. Yeah Yeah I mean. His his religions a bummer. So John later would write that his eternal war with slavery also started when he was twelve when he came upon a young black slave boy being beaten with shovels for some minor crime. He wrote in his letter to that little kid. This brought John to reflect on the wretched hopeless condition of fatherless and motherless slave children now I'm sure he saw stuff like that and may not have happened when when he was twelve he was writing letter to a twelve year old. Maybe he just did a bit but it does seem accurate to say based on what. You're writing a letter to a twelve year old dewey now. Yeah Yeah One. One of his like as a as an older man will get to this. He's funding like a guerilla insurgency to try to free the slaves of the south and he gets a bunch of rich backers and while he's like dining with one of them. This kid hid asks about his life and asks him to write a letter. Oh so it's a hallmark movie with Kinda I mean it's more like This guy is legally funding terrorist. And the guy's kid wants to know more about the the John Brown's life so John Brennan writes my notes. We can buy more guns dot. It's a lifetime movie. Yeah lifetime movie. Yeah so Brown. Studied to be a pastor but went up not choosing that life and it's likely that he would have been bored to tears by the work but he remained devoted calvin est his entire life following in his father's footsteps. Yeah and he was like he was still like really woke is a calvin. It's like when his church He learned that black people weren't allowed to sit at the front of the church. They had to sit in the back. He made a big point in the middle of service of getting up with his family. Marching to the back Walking up to one of the black families in offering them his the seat at the front of the Church and then sitting in the back with his family so I think he's committed from the jump to to racial equality. Not Just Tabah listen but to like total racial equality which fucking nobody is at this period like most abolitionists are still pretty fucking racist but not John Brown. Yeah at twenty following. His Dad's advice. John Brown Mary. Diane Lusk Lusk. Diane Lusk we've name Diane Diane. Dia N. T. H. E.. Diane th Lusk Right. Don't hate it though. No it's it's a nice name her I like it. He describes her in his letters as remarkably plane but industrious and economical. So so he's like she wasn't a bad bitch but he's ugly but I'm like she has a great. This is trash and does not pass the back del tests continue. Yeah you're asking for too much. If you want someone to be racially gender woke fucking eighteen thirty definitely both know. Their first child was born a year. After they married. Johnny's no Jan giants junior knows Owen not already No no no. I'm not getting that name wrong. I write it down somewhere later. Hey Yeah John. And his father Owen Do not sound like they would have been fun people to hang out with but they were on the right side debate win John Brown Junior uh he sons Sam holy hit some weird names we. He's a fuck ten children to yeah. He has twenty survived to adulthood some of them die fighting with them. L. and my mom's name is Allan. Hi Hi mom. She listens to our show so John and his dad were on the right side of the slavery. Debate from the beginning Owen had been a fierce I. Abolition EST in an era when that really wasn't the thing He was also a pacifist and for a time. John Brown was a pacifist too so they fought slavery without fighting the people who kept slaves largely by helping escaped slaves with shelter and food on their way across the underground railroad. So we'll John is a kid. He and his family are like helping to hide. Escaped slaves as they make their the way up to Canada. So this is like a part of his life from like the teenage years on When John was twenty one he moved his young family to Pennsylvania and bought two hundred acres of land? He he built a house and a tannery on it now. The tannery had a hidden room which brown used to hide escaped slaves from the South from the mid eighteen twenty to eighteen thirty five. The Brown family hosted an estimated made twenty five hundred escaped slaves critical role in their journey to freedom. So he's a committed abolitionist and like putting his money where his mouth is his entire life. Now while he was helping to work the underground railroad. John was also helping to found a new settlement in rural Pennsylvania. He's built a school and he built a church and he was the areas first postmaster. You're one of his neighbors described him as an inspired paternal ruler controlling and providing for the circle of which he was the head. I have a question. Yeah how's he funding all this. I mean it doesn't take that much money like he he works and he's like you could by two hundred acres was like a few bucks back then because they're trying to most of this area after the genocide side of the native Americans thing there is unspeakable amount of empty territory that the government wants people farming. So there's all these deals where you can get most of the land for free or basically for for free and get a loan where there's no interest because they're they're just trying to get people farming and using it okay Are Sure it was realistic. And it wasn't like an episode of friends no no no Now as you might imagine there were a lot of people who didn't get along with John Round His wife's brother was able to visit the family on Sundays. And so jon hated him. Because visiting on Sunday was against God John was so strict about keeping the sabbath that his church banned all worldly conversation on that day. So you couldn't talk about anything but religion on on Sunday making cheese in hanging out with your friends was also forbidden on Sunday work. He's lame ass religion and workers on John. Tannery were required to attend his church and hold daily worship sessions with their families. One of John's apprentices described him as friendly as long as the conversation version did not turn towards anything. He considered profane or vulgar. Brown's younger brother described him as a king against whom there is no rising up Lasso. Oh wait since one. A king against whom there is no rising up so it's basically like my way or the highway. Yeah he is absolutely convinced convinced that he's right And he will not like. He's he's personable unless you disagree with him and he is not not open to being disagreed with about the things he believes interesting. Yeah he's that Kinda Guy So again a religious fundamentalist kind of a Dick about it. Yeah but also like a really dedicated family man dedicated to his community An Anti Slavery Crusader So Yeah He's an interesting wresting fella and when we come back from ads we will talk about how he raised his kids fun. I love adds. That's to Sophie. ADS products. A good service. I don't have fun. It's it's usually more fun when like I say something horrible about like a bunch of kids. It's getting murdered. And then I say I won't murder all your kids. Oh these strikes retrials try to try transition I I mean I am about to talk about how what he did to. His children by. The standards of the modern era was abuse now after my mom child child abuse by the standards of our modern era. Yeah what isn't child. Abuse is the products that support the show. Wow brave.

BP chief backs shift towards renewable energy
"Choo investor resolutions at BP's annual meeting, and Abidine this week, shade high pressure is building on oil companies to take action on climate change political discusses, how the oil companies are responding with Angela Weaver, and blessing hook. Up already the way. People around the work for her life. At the same time, Harmon emissions need to come out at a much faster pace that is seeking. That more energy emissions dot is to charge. That was Helga loaned, the chairman of BP outlining the company's commitment to transitioning to a low carbon energy system at their AGM in Aberdeen. This week shareholders had to climate change resolutions to vote on an epidemic. Edgeley. You were up there what happened. So everyone was waiting for these two resolutions to come up for debate. Now, one was backed by p and brought forward by climate action. One hundred plus which is an initiative, led by group of investors, and they were calling on BP to demonstrate how its business strategy aligns with the Paris climate goals. And now the second resolution was proposed by follow this dodge shareholder group, and essentially this one was different because not only was it calling on the P to set targets for its carbon emissions going forward. But these targets also should include those of. Of its products, so essentially, the emissions of its consumers, and that's essentially what shall has done. That's what shall has agreed to do. Right. But in this case, BP management back the climate action one hundred plus resolution but not the other one. Why was that BP claims that the follow this resolution would not allow for flexibility through the energy transition? They say we don't know what this energy transition is going to look like we don't want to put hard targets are legally binding on ourselves or on our consumers who's use of our products, we can't control. That's what they say. And does that sound like a reasonable explanation to you? So this is where it gets very interesting because most climate activists and increasing the investors say that these emissions from the use of the products are essential to accounting for how we really progress through this, energy transition and oil and gas. Companies must be held accountable for these emissions now. I do have some sympathy for oil and gas companies in the sense that they don't know what this energy transition looks like, however, most people, I speak to you think that BP right now is in the same position that shell was in a few years ago. And at some point they too would also have to include these emissions in some way into their forward-planning. Leslie, do you have any sympathy with bay pays position. I don't know about sympathy, but I think it is hard to account for the emissions of your consumer. So I can see the sort of legality of that narrow argument. I think what's been really interesting, though, is something that Angela is actually written about, which is where the RND dollars are going for these companies, although BP has started talking a lot more about climate change. And they've certainly made it a sort of headline item on their agenda there. Aren. These spending hasn't really followed. Those words. Yes. Exactly. And even in. The opinion piece that Helgoland wrote in the F T, and in his public comments it a, he's very clear that BP's also going to have to transform its business. But what does this look like it's unbelievably murky, we have no idea is he talking about increasing our independent low-carbon fuels and technologies is he talking about shifting towards renewable? It's not entirely clear. What this means in the BP context, and this is what investors really are trying to gain some more clarity on a lot of these invested discussions with the companies have essentially been company led. It's what the companies are comfortable with talking about BP's, not committing to a particular direction. They say we've been there before, under the John Brown era petroleum beyond petroleum. They invested huge amounts in renewables. And they ended up losing a lot of money. And so this was the point that Helga loons made at the GM, as well as in the opinion piece, which is that we want to be. An investable company and I think that was his way of saying, we need to keep on investing in oil and gas. And there is a real dichotomy there because ultimately BP makes money from selling fossil fuels calls emissions, and they don't really know how they will make money if they stop doing that. So I sort of get the sense that, while there's a lot more talk about it. There's not a clear answer of where revenue is going to come from if they're no longer selling fossil fuels on the other hand, you've got companies like shell and hotel. You know, the really going out there saying, we're investing in not just gasp, renewables and renewable power. And this is all feature. But most analysts who look at the sector and even the executives themselves will say to the margins here, incredibly low compared to is stark and traditional businesses. But also, we don't really know what this is going to look like for us. And this is the point BP's trying to make, which is we're not going to go down that path blindly again. Just taking a punt on the huge amounts of pressure from every. Body in terms of crime activists, and the investors who want this investment into the cleaner fuels business and into renewables. I mean Greenpeace this week, blockaded BP's entrances. I was going to ask you about that it was quite an extraordinary defection even for Greenpeace because they actually stopped staff going into BP headquarters Ryan, where it's quite interesting to compare that to the shell AGM which was happening on the same day over in the Hague. And apparently, there were very few protests or any sort of action going on over there, certainly nothing, like staff being stopped from getting into buildings and things. And do you think that that's because shell has been clearer about its determination to invest in renewables, and lower carbon forms of energy, then B P so far? And do you think that BP is worried about that? And that's why it took the steps that it did this way. I think BP's just a different point than shell shell faced this kind of backlash Affi years ago. Let's also remember. That shell is very much a dodge company and this huge amounts of domestic pressure. And this is now only ricocheting around the world, you know, to all the European companies as well as US counterparts, but, you know, the protesters this week were saying to be, you must shift all your investment into renewables, or go bust, but it's not entirely clear if that's the strategy. Yeah. And this is just the latest example we've seen of shareholders, trying to pressure oil and gas companies and indeed coal companies to disclose more about the future plans and targets and investments and talk more about the financial and physical risks that they might face by climate change. Ultimately, do you really think this is going to shift the dial? When it comes to lowering global carbon emissions through the investors say, there's a sort of a three pronged approach here. The first is to get these companies to be more transparent. Then it's to get them to set tie. Targets on their emissions and then the third bit of this strategy is to shift their investments towards cleaner fuels cleaner energies into ready. Get a handle on the investment component here, but it's not clear to me, how long that is going to take an if these companies are going to agree to shift the businesses in a meaningful way. And there's also just a place devil's advocate. I think there is a real question about what is the company's responsibility versus the government's responsibility? Where does the role of policymakers and business leaders begin? I mean at time when we're seeing global emissions still rising. The world is not on track to meet the Paris climate goals. A lot of that is due to government inaction as well as what companies are doing. We've seen that globally, governments haven't really stepped up to make the types of commitments that they would need to live in a two degree world, which then sort of empowers the companies to say, well, if the governments haven't figured this. Out, then why is that our job? So I can sort of see their twenty few in that way, would sort of just make two further points, which is that let's be clear. The world is still using huge amounts of oil and gas will using one hundred million barrels a day of oil. So from the company's point of view, if the demand is there, at least for now, why would they pull back that's the first point? And the second point is that, you know, to what extent can these companies really transition? Yeah. Just finally one way that the oil majors trying to prove that this series of crime. It changes by making these big investments in renewable energy. We saw one of those this week lately that you wrote about that actually shows that this getting quieter crowded field. Yes, we've just seen two of Europe's largest utilities g of France and EDP of Portugal tie up all of their offshore wind assets, which is going to create a bit of an offshore wind behemoth. An already we've seen a former oil and gas company known as Dong become or stud. It's now the world's largest offshore wind developer, and we do see more and more traditional energy companies, try and go that direction the company, formerly known as Stott oil now Ecuador, it also has a growing offshore wind business, so there is some indication that the traditional energy companies are really pushing in that direction although globally last year. What was very striking is that we had some numbers out a couple of days ago from the. A that suggested total global investment in clean energy. In fact fell a little bit last year. Despite the surge of interest from European energy groups, the global picture is still not quite as rosy. Thank you, Leslie, and angelie. That was police Clark took into a senior energy.

And in the meantime, the company has six billion dollars of cash in the Bank largely from Asian investor. Softbank still there were reasons to be skeptical that it can overcome almost two billion dollars in losses. This year. One of those reasons revenue per customer is dropping the average.
