"kublai khan" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm no Whale King. Good morning. What is money? Jacob Goldstein, who co hosts NPR's planet money, has spent years fixated on that question in his new book, Money. The True Story of a made up Thing, he writes, that money is a shared fiction. We all agree to believe that a paper $20 bill, or the numbers in my savings account are worth something. There are long periods in the history of money, where not much happens and Goldstein In skips those parts. But then there's a revolutionary technology or a talented hustler who changes everything like 1000 this years ago when the Mongol emperor Kublai Khan created the first paper money What happened in China is really amazing. I mean, that story really starts a couple 100 years before he showed up on the scene in a province in China, where they actually used iron coins as money. And you know this was an era when the value of the metal was basically what the value of the money was. Iron was not worth a lot. So you had to use like a pound and a half of iron coins to buy a pound of salt, which is obviously terrible. You know, it's like having a Use pennies to do your grocery shopping or something. So these merchants started letting people store their iron coins with them and then giving people a receipt. Sort of, like a coat check or something for the coins, Right? And then those receipts started turning into money. People started using just the receipts to buy stuff so that they didn't have to schlep the iron coins around. And that took off basically and China became the first place in the world as far as we know, to use paper money, and so you know, money and trade are all kind of booming in China. It's a prosperous time. Kublai Khan is like, Okay, how about this? How about if the paper money is just paper and we all agree to use it as money? Shared fiction, shared fiction. And you know what? Since I'm the Kahn. If you don't believe me, I'll kill you, He says. Everybody has to use paper money, you know, upon pain of death, and and we know this in part from Marco Polo from other travelers. When Marco Polo comes back to Europe after seeing this, he is amazed. He's like you won't believe it. In China. Everybody uses paper for money and people are like no way. And you know eventually what happens sometimes when you can make money out of paper is you make too much paper money the Chinese finally, after a bunch of inflation's actually give up on paper money. That's my favorite part of the book, literally My favorite part of the book. They've done all of this. They're leading the universe. They really have an emperor. Come on the scene. He's like, No, I want to go back to green. Let's go back and this economic flourishing that had happened. It just goes away and people in China who had been getting richer, they get poorer. So I mean, one of the interesting lessons to me of that whole arc is We live in this moment now, where For a few 100 years since the industrial revolution. We have been having this kind of boom of money and markets and lots of people There has been, you know, over the long run, broadbased rise in material well being. But one of the lessons in China is that is not a one way street, right? Sometimes lots of people get better off for a long time. And then things get worse and everybody gets poor. I was going to say this is largely an optimistic book, but you just managed used to nail down the pessimistic part of it. I want to talk about the United States in the 18 twenties. I believe when the United States had 8370 different kinds of money thiss actually, as much as I thought about money. I don't think it ever occurred to me that there wasn't Just one single American $1 Bill $10. Bill $20 Bill, So, yes, this is one of my favorite periods in the whole history of money. So it used to be the case that banks printed their own banknotes. What paper money was was a note issued by bank receipt a claim on gold or silver. And if you brought your note to the bank, they would give you gold or silver in exchange. So this period in the U. S. What happened was it was called free banking. Yeah, let's let's do it. Let's everybody wants to be a bank, a bank and there's actually this idea of like. Look, we believe in sort of free enterprise and free trade in wheat. Let's have free enterprise and free trade in money. Let's have everybody who could meet a few rules, set up a bank and print their own money. And you get this amazing proliferation. Whereas you said there are like 1000 different kinds of money. Which raises some interesting, just like how does that even work? Kind of questions? Right? Like you're a merchant and somebody walks into your store. And gives you a piece of paper that says it's from like the wop on bank in Waupun, Wisconsin, and there's a picture of Santa Claus really place. Yeah, it's a real place, but you don't know that it's 18 40. You're a merchant in Ohio or something. Right? So what you do is you subscribe to the special periodical is called banknote Reporters that exists just to tell merchants like what Bank notes are really first of all, because there's a lot of counterfeiting, obviously. The other thing, slightly less obvious, But interesting is should you If you're a merchant, except the bank note at full face value, or should you say I'll accept your dollar, but I'll only give you 90 cents worth of stuff for it. I'll discount the value of it. So this was the world for decades of American money, so We're living in a time right now. 2020 where the world is very divided. The country is very divided. I've been thinking about this since I read your book incessantly. Money might be the one thing that we all still believe in. You know, we tend to look often at money is a moral thing wanting too much. Having too much is bad. There's very little moralizing in your book, which I appreciate, but ultimately I guess what I'm asking you is is money a good thing? You don't I mean, one way to think about it is What are the alternatives to money? You know, and you can think of sort of. Maybe a spectrum like money. Is this social thing right? It's a thing that societies create to solve some set of problems, and obviously it creates some other problems along the way. But how could you not have money? Well, you could be a really, really small, like sort of clan type, self sufficient society right of a small group of people and you're all hanging out and making things and working together. Not how I'm gonna live my life. I feel like that ship has sailed for most on Earth. Right? So that's pretty much off the table. You could go to the other end of the spectrum. You could Build a big, complicated society without money. If the government was basically taking everything everybody made and deciding exactly who would get what? And nobody got to choose what they were going to get. Also terrible. Yeah, I don't I don't want to live there. So in the middle You need money. Money is the tool that allows us to live between those polls and I don't see any alternative and you know it's useful. It does the thing it's supposed to do, even though it creates a lot of problems. Jacob Goldstein, author of the book Money, The True Story of a Made Up Thing, Jacob. Thank you so much for being with us. So, so funny. Well, thanks..

To be was a man inside the trunk of Old Times with a trumpet, who as soon as the emperor decided, he wanted to drink, the blew the trumpet, so it looked like the angel was blowing it, and then everyone flocked into refill.

Kublai Khan basically invented the numbers Kurt, which is a card. You, get free then does forever. If you have this right, yeah, that's what the number is so cute. mccown had a bit of a correspondence with the then pope and. Obviously. This is incredibly difficult to do because you're thousands of miles away and. Glasses a nightmare, but he sent. com says sent an ambassador. With a Peiser. which is a golden tablet, which is three inches wide and one foot long, and what the Peiser does is it authorizes the holder to free food and lodging anywhere throughout Kublai. Khan's dominion. Effectively anandas black card for a whole country. Yes, Nah, I'm GonNa give you that. Marco Polo had one those as well. Yeah, Mark Pullen when he left to come back to Italy, he was given one of these golden tablets, and it worked brilliantly until he sort of reached the stronghold of his influence, and it sort of got weaker and weaker, and at that point, the gold tablet meant nothing, and they started getting beat up, and they started leaving the Clinton. It's what led to basically him arriving back Ruffians supposedly and being jailed. yeah, it's like when he tried to pay with Scottish money for something. Of, this is legit. We're the person who made it for. The whole dynasty was genghis right and he's. He's started off really publicly stricken, so he started off being a hunter gatherer, because he was basically exiled, but he was born. This is weird thing. He was born with a lot of blood in his hand, apparently, which meant that you were going to be a great ruler, I mean. Mean obviously wasn't if we don't believe in the mythology of these times, but if you're a Mungo, Clo- blood in his hand, and was sign, it was going to be ruthless, and he was once he massacred as what is massacring entire Sissy. He's got all the pets all the cats and dogs and cows and camels in the city as well or no for person. He was, he was a bad guy, but he really likes loyalty. He was a good guy to his mate. He was one of those. If you're friends with him, he's really good to you. He was in. He was in one bustle, and someone almost killed him, shooting his horse out from underneath him, and he stood of stopped, the battle took, took them prisoner, and was like who wasn't. He Will Miss Short that horse out from under me, and the guy put his hand up. Some reason and Ganga's set. Okay you that was a great show. Come on my side, and this guy ended up being one of his most important generals helped him conquer the world. you just to go on his good side when he went through. The Middle East trying to see all these cities, the reason that they were so good as they had these massive catapults, and the catapults were amazing. They would fire the stones at the city walls, and then eventually they would have to give up. And they were so important that if you know how they killed all the dogs and cats and stuff like that well, they wouldn't kill the engineers of the city. They give them a chance to kind of come over to the Mongols site, because they knew how impulsively engineers were, and if they agreed that, they would come over, and they become part of the Mongol, army and there was one city. In China somewhere I remember what it's called and they heard about this that this was happening in the heard, the Mongols will come in, and they decided to get rid of all the stones from the area, so a couple of days they literally within a Mile Circle. They grabbed every single stone. They could find a broader ends of the city. But then what the Mongols did instead was, they got some Mowbray's trees chopped down. Put them in water, left them out to dry, and they became rock-hard, and they could use those instead of stones to fire ever sits only. Say some argument that they were good enough, and in the end they had to bring in some stones from somewhere else because they had like a like a postal service for stones. Get like storage of stones like. Storage site of parcels, but they would keep stones in all these different places and really yeah, they would be like one days right away, and they bring the stones to each place, so there's an argument they might have done that or it might have been these trees. So. Expensive! If you'll shipping stones internationally is hard enough to ship. Book Imagine One hundred. And you're asking for next day delivery and a lot of these. Could catapulted to the area. You want to get. Such a good idea. This is full. Scuttle I. Don't think they even thought of that. Judge. They used also trees to their horses if they didn't need the trees to be replacement rooks. These clever tactics, scattering the enemy, and one of them was tying trees to the horses that didn't have riders, so it sounded like they had much. Is the holes dragging along a tree. Okay sorry, tiny trees to the horses makes it sound like you're.

"And ultimately, and this is maybe the most scary sentence in this article people in low trust societies, may, welcome in a thorough -tarian ruler. Someone who will impose order and consequence. Nces from on high. Sure the tyrants, also, corrupt and cruel. But the alternative is the tiring immiserizati- absence of every day, safety and security. I love this line during the reign of kublai Khan was said, a maiden bearing a nugget of gold on her head could wander safely throughout the realm. The great Khan required absolute submission, and even repression has some perks. What do you what do you think? I'll let you start Jeff because I think latency is, is kind of killing your ability to converse. So why don't you start? All right. No, it's not. You're just put another piece up in the run down to the bottom of the rundown, which is related. Which is Mike Godwin wrote a piece in reason inspired mydeal. Stevenson's new very thick eight hundred page novel which I have finished which I have finished. Yeah. In which which he our yard is that maybe the cure for information as formation, maybe we all distrust, everything, maybe that's what we need to get to. Yeah. You could tell my cousin finished the novel, by the way. So what happens? What happens in the novel and I, I think I might have brought this up. It's fascinating. What happens in the novel is one character important character. Maeve is being a slime by trolls never happens right on the internet just completely Harrap being trashed for no apparent reason. It's almost a gamer gate situation and a geek comes up with a great idea. He creates many, many Botts to put out information. Misinformation information of all kinds about Maeve flood the internet with it. So that when you go on the net. You can't tell you know, anything you read about Maeve is bogus because there's so much of it. She's a leftist. She's a right. Is she's a feminist. She hates women. You put up enough, contradictory bogus information. None of it is trusted. And so it drowns out the trolling. Well, he hasn't finished the novel because the consequence the consequence of this is and I think I mentioned this, that any other people have it's a spoiler. But it's not going to spoil a novel. It's a great now, people who have enough money will hire editors on the internet human curator's to try to give you decent information, people who can't afford that, which is the vast majority will be fed incr- such a volume of phony, fake news that the, the country splits into faction, people who believe, in vaccinations, people who don't says, south familiar. Yeah. So that and, and no, there's no crazy theory that doesn't have its adherence. And as a result, it is very dangerous, because as you travel through the country you go into the different zone. There's a zone where people don't believe in Christ's crucifixion. They think that, that was a fiction that was promulgated by somebody who didn't want anybody for whatever re they had some crazy, correct reason. So they go around crucifying people to prove it's not re-. It's just weird. They'll Stevenson is, is a great thinker about the future. I think not sometimes not a great writer. Some of his roots rd smelly favourite novel, but you also has some difficulty finish finishing in them. Upset is say the fall does not end in a very coherent way. However, it's a fascinating novel full of great ideas. But that is a very interesting reading or no we're three hundred and eighty eight pages. I listened and read I have a new method which really works well as to buy the kindle version and the audiobook version, and go back and forth..

I think I've been through it like maybe like four times since it ended its run. I love it a lot just very critical mixed reception now, but I would recommend people go and watch it, and it definitely took a big hit the fact that it was a Harvey Weinstein. Passion project at definitely hurt it big time help Benedict Wong to is an absolute fucking unit in this show. He is he's huge yet. I've watched it. But he I've seen pictures of Buchan unit. Trill, number two, guilty pleasure. Tv show true blood. Oh, yeah. True blood is just it was a very entertaining TV show. But it was it was a piece wasn't piece of shit. It was very trashy. It was very very trashy show a lot of gratuitous vampire sex empire nudity. People turning into where wolves. It was sick. They kept. They kept us watching it at that. But it never really never really was like a great show. You had to whole the whole magneto professor x thing except between Sookie. Yes. Sookie and vampire Eric in. Vampire Bill is name is vampire, Eric they Bill vampire, Eric, so the main one was vampire Bill like you Stackhouse Stackhouse and she ended up being a she ended up being a fairy. Like with telepathic abilities. And then she should like her blood was like in intoxicating to the vampires. They couldn't resist her and it ended up being like I can't do this anymore, but you got to vampire Bill a can't be around you. It's too tempting and just for six seasons. She a won best actress in drama thirteenth salad awards. I don't know what those are. But she wanted it. Lights. Guilty pleasure. Tv shows. It was a show.

Premise of the show from a SCI fi fantasy perspective was quite interesting about synthetic blood being developed in there for vampires get emerged in take part in society because they no longer have to kill people to drink their blood. So then you had this whole vampire governance organization. But the show course like Wimpy on that premise and just got really weird because it was a it was.

"When I landed you couldn't see one end of the airport from the other. Although several of the days that I was there. I didn't notice it as much but one day we flew in. I was one of those days, but that he's very unfortunate. And that it can happen. Absolutely true. So why should people come to Beijing of three main reasons, I feel the first one is history. So every way a lot of places have great history. But I think Beijing is special especially in China because if we compare it to Shanghai Shanghai has great history can see the French concessions and whatnot. But Beijing history is way older than that. So Shanghai's histories listened to hundred years old Beijing history, the first walled city goes back to benefa- and Basie and the layout of the inner city around the Forbidden City is dates back to the u on dynasty, which was the thirteenth century. That's kublai Khan's grandson Asst. Established that when the Mongols ruled over China so that lay out of the city and the sites you say within a dyke back I one hundred years and through the dynasty since then the Ming and the Qing dynasty or up until nineteen eleven when the ching dynasty ended. So there's a huge amount of things to see in terms of history. But you do have the news. So just like Shanghai has the PU Dong area Shanghai has its it's BT area. And I really liked that area as well. And I think they will shoot overlook the new area. And the other reason I think Beijing is really what saying is being the capital is fantastic window into all of China's culture through the museums and calories and the food because all of China has come to Beijing for work until live. So you get great restaurants that represent all of Chinese cuisine. The last thing would be simply the gravity and the energy of Beijing being the capital and being the center of power in China. I really do feel a sense of series snus in white about it that other places don't have. On example. I always comes to mind is in Shanghai. And Beijing when you go on the subways you need to go through security check and put your bags through the x-ray machine. In shanghai. You often see people push past the security God's not put their bags through the x-ray machine. And nothing happens. If not want saying that happen in Beijing, everyone diligently puts the bag through the machine out know, what that means if they don't do it. But it's just a little sign of things the mall seriously in a way. And then you feel that you feel that here. So I think that's something to take away when you come here. All right. And what kind of tenor would you recommend for someone who had say a week to visit in the Beijing area? This all the big science, which we can run through. But I would definitely recommend trying to mix it up a bit. So the big science there and you'll go and see them, but try and. Balance that we it some more casual trips some casual walking around to some areas, go out to of course, the great wall to get out into the hills. You might wanna go to pice like seven nine eight and not district. I say that because Beijing can have a lot of traffic the sites can be extremely crowded with Chinese tourists, and it can be a bit of Wilmington. I really wouldn't recommend trying to hit all those big sites. Just after day. I'm a person that really gets temple fatigue or. One palace. You've seen the mole type thing. So I'm really conscious of not trying to recommend people. I have to say holy sites. No, see few big ones and mix it up. And I think you'll get the base experienced by doing it that way. Okay. Well, let's get a little more specific where are you going to start us the big daddy of the mole in the one that everyone will see and should see the foot bidden city. So the food bitten city is the old palace grounds and related complexes that the empress through dynasties lifting since kublai Khan established the current layout in the thirteenth century and all the emperors since then have lived there have built up there on buildings within that area. So you go into the Forbidden City, which is cold all alternately called the Palace Museum. You'll be there with half of China. At fills..

"I mean, I mean, you have Bill gate example, he's one of my that was who has a house with a garage for twenty six cars, and it covers masses of land had cuts down five hundred year old trees, and he has to cold at Shanidar they so we supposed to think of he missed some kind of kublai Khan. I mean, it really, I think charity really, really underpins the system in ways that hasn't been discussed and even worse than that, it's very, I, I'll Brown for extreme corruption which we discussing. In six of the book and Trump is a good example with his Trump phone Dacian where with all kinds of tax loopholes they can steps away trends that we don't know about. And I think another thing which is even worse is that it's not equal relationship that the person who's receiving cannot reciprocate and in the end, I think that the side DEA that they're human beings who have to depend on the opportu- whims of rich people. It also helps with the notion that there are populations which indicates and would've called basket cases or redundant populations. So now in Spain, we have this situation of full of refugees and immigrants just being letting sink in the Mediterranean, those people redundant. Nobody wants them. And I think that charity decide DEA that there are some people who so hopeless. Thank Kahn. Do anything for themselves and they have to be dependent on the nights of Bill gate. People who engage in smaller kinds of charity helps to reinforce his idea of basket case populations, hope relations. But of course, you know, then again, you know this acts of kindness and we do go to some trouble to try and distinguish what Jane charity and kindness. And of course, there are a lot of people who will create charities podium and for example, common capanic or wished an old British poet who are really sincere and trying to do something against this terrible system countries have been reduced basket cases such as Haiti pen that say, let's call it the corruption ground of the Clintons products and on. And we've divided some pomp because part of charity on the institutions we talking about charity on the institution was go not particularly attacking old individual. Although there are some not Clinton who deserve to be attacked, we talk about philanthropy and humanitarianism is institutional forms of charity. But of course they underpin the military industrial system as well. And so if you read about what the Clinton foundation actually did in high tea and even the American Red Cross, you know is another really scandalous case where they receive so much money off the quake and did up -solutely nothing. For example, one very simple thing could have been to sort out the problem is the water supply, but I didn't do that. So now we've got sounds of people dying of color. It. Here we have the Clintons who subscribed to ninety Allah gene that says that Haiti as the poorest country in the western hemisphere has an ad advantage by being poor. That is that it's people will work for less money than anybody else. And people with this ideology are in charge of both the charity to Haiti and have great influence on the other of fairs that influence how Haiti can be kept in a poor position. Yeah, exactly. I mean, patriots being cooled, the and Joe Republic. This means that private companies from the United States including countries because US aid has this connects with the military industrial complex. So you've gone, I'm soldiers, there's and even the UN peacekeeping force. Why do they need a peacekeeping force after an earthquake? And these are the guys who introduced the congre. So you've got this NGO Republic of foreign NGOs with local NGOs have absolutely no saying what's happened. And you know, you can't help thinking when you back at the history of Heike that it's almost the case story punishment. You know, because it was the first flavor, Republican, the history of the world. It's got an amazing history, but it's being crushed over and over and over again, the Clintons go, there was Democrats and just contribute to the further destruction of the country and in in the grossest ways as well by building..

I'm going to be out there with my family tonight. So it'll be good fun. Looking forward to it. All right cheeseburgers is to. Is today actually national cheeseburger day. No that's Tuesday. Okay. So today is national double cheeseburger day. Yeah. That's why the hell would double cheeseburger day precede cheeseburger day. It's a very good question. It's chronologically. That's not the way. It went down. I mean, there's it's hard to pin it down because there's no way to really claim. Hey, yeah. I was the guy who added a second slab of meat. It's a lot harder. You you deal with the hamburger itself. Kind of it goes back quite far. You're looking at Genghis. Khan course, the emperor of all emperors, right? He had his horsemen the golden horde, and they conquered two thirds of the known world at the time. Two-thirds? They were conquering fools so much. So they had these horses these ponies very sturdy horses that they'd right in on. They would almost never dismount almost never they were constantly moving constantly moving constantly battling they stayed in their saddles the majority of the time so eating and things like that became, you know, a luxury so they didn't stop. They didn't build a fire. They didn't have a meal that way they were really moving and moving and moving and moving they had those that followed them in yours these cards, and they would have sheep goat and oxen. What have you? But if they needed food to eat while they were writing it had to be something that they carried with them. Now as the legend goes nice say legend because I'm not sure this no matter what studies you do on hamburgers. It's going to bring you back to this. But it's a strange scientifically. It's a strange thing to think that somebody took meet slabs of meat and put them underneath or saddle, and that's the description or the 'lustration that's given every time I dive into hamburgers. Is Genghis Khan and his horsemen dismounting from their horses would take scraps and pieces and and rounds of meat. Put it under their saddles, and they would eat it for protein while they wrote and because of the movement of the saddle in the horse that it would it would tend to rise and beat up the protein and making it kind of a hamburger substance more of a tar tar and strangely enough. When they didn't mean to do it. But from all the pounding it ended up getting motion. They hey, that's kind of good. And this is what they ate. So then when Genghis Khan's grandson, kublai Khan, he invaded Moscow Bisa Porsche came with them and the Russians adopted it and the Russian started calling it stake. Tartaric tars was the their name the Russian name for Mongols. So it became stick are than over, you know, years and years and years Russian chefs adapted it and put chopped onions and riots and all kinds of things so that moves up to the fifteenth century, and you have this minced meat becoming a delicacy throughout Europe. Hashed beef is what they called it name. They use it in sausage and all kinds of different things while you pushed through to the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. And in the late eighteenth century. There's large ports in Europe. And the the biggest ports were in Germany. So sailors would come from all over the place and they'd visit. And they started they brought this food and the term hamburger Hamburg steak into popular usage because of the ports of Hamburg. They would put up these stands later in New York City in the harbor for sailors saying steak cooked in the Hamburg style. Now, this goes on you come to the United States where it decidedly gets to what we know and love, and there are a couple of different veins of thought as to how how it came about ten who invented it and with with something like this. There's always going to be many different stories. There's the story of someone wanting to serve meatballs at a fair and people didn't want to eat them because it wasn't easy to eat. So they put them between they smashed them down and put them between Bonn and their stories of these types of things throughout the years. A real story, or is that an urban legend has it makes sense. Well there from what I can see the stories. Seem real it's just hard to kind of figure out who what was I and it's not like a direct line and a lot of times with food. It's not because you've got an entire world that has similar ingredients. At least something, you know, when you're dealing with cattle, or you're dealing with some certain fruits and vegetables and things like that. And so they're going to design things bread is everywhere. Flat bread is just about everywhere. Fried bread is just about everywhere. So it's kinda hard to pinpoint. But it's an interesting story to see how how the different mechanisms that went went through to get to where we are today and the beloved hamburger, but regardless of how it came to be all thank God it exists. I don't know what it is about a hamburger, and I like a steak and all of that too. But there's something so delightful about a good burger. And a cheeseburger even better in my book. So we we celebrate today is double cheeseburger day. And can I ask? Yes. Of course. Do you know that Wendy's is offering free Burghers through September thirtieth in honor of this. What what I did not know I Google as burger day thing and stop it. Look this for the rest of the month with any Wendy's purchase and the fast food chains app. You get a free.

I don't know if you guys have seen Marco Polo on Netflix, but he is the reason to watch that show as kublai Khan for me that performances up there with Ian McShane is elsewhere engine in the ranks of great anti heroes. And so, yeah, I love the the gruffness in the swagger that he brings to the role and also the the ability to poke fun at himself. He this, that may be my favorite performance in the movie just because he so he's doesn't have a lot of screen time, but he's so kind of lovable gruff, but lovable, I love. Yeah, I love him. He's great. I love that. He reading the riot act in the library. And then later when he's trying to solve the problems and say the day, I mean, he's like he's kind. The closest there is to a normal person on the magic side of this movie where he's like, I have a library and maintaining it, and everybody else in this cult was fighting with each other, some kind of weird civil war. But you know, my books will be in the right order. Stop people. That's right. Last librarian didn't. Well, he's got an ipod, he's listening to music. It's fine. It's all good. All right. So doctor strange, Stephen street, he learns he. He learns that there is more to the world. He gets tap from the from the ancient one that puts him on like a little bit of a trip. He thinks there's something there's LSD in the in the tea, but it's just tea and he realizes that he needs to be taught. And there's a nice moment where she says, how did you become so great at being a surgeon says years of learning, and she's like, well, there you go and he's like, all right, teach me and he's a very, obviously he's a brilliant driven person who when given a task will commit himself to, and so we fully commits to learning the mystic arts, including. That time that he was on the side of Mount Everest and was left for dead plays teachers and see what always surprises me is that I think every time I watch this movie I figure this is the point in the movie where he will learn humility and become a better person. Not really, no. No, not that movie. Not till. Even then like. I mean, he used to call him the source or supreme, you know, it's, I don't know. I feel like at least unlike ironman where like Tony stark was born being smart and is naturally gifted with machines. At least here UC Stephen strange studying really hard learning to be a magician. It's not just like, oh, I can just do this automatically with a snap of my fingers. I liked it. It shows them working and studying. I mean, he has a photographic memory. It's not like a real thing that people do have. No, I know. But real people are also really good at machines too. So I don't know. Like I think they're both equally believable and yeah, he suffering in the way that Tony stark had to suffer in that cave, building a robot suit, scrap metal. So he's he's putting in his hours for his his training montage, I'm giving it's an accelerated course, but I'm giving him credit for Apple's. That's great. I love training montage. I everybody knows that and I am big supporter of the mid midlife career. Which is what doctors trains has to do here is like about a wizard. I'll be a wizard and I like the. I like those scenes in the library again with Wong and he ends up basically using the eye of aga- mode, wind time back and make that apple not eating and then rotten and the nut eaten again..

On Voy Christian on voi- from China to Europe. And he met with. The, Byzantine emperor he met with the pope and he even went to England and met with the king of England and there were discussions about a European alliance with the Mongols to crush a slum in between the two nothing, came of that was in twelve eighty eight nothing came of it however and what did happen, was that in the early part of the thirteen hundred's the Mongol emperor converted. To, Islam and became a force of jihad such that Tamburlaine was one of. The most famous Muslim jihad warriors in history and he waged jihad. Against the non Muslims in central, Asia And also ventured into Europe as well and to, the Byzantine empire of the Christian empire of the day and he also, fought against the Ottoman empire because he was a rival, of the Ottoman Sultan the Mongols even though they converted to Islam they didn't. Just join one big happy family and. He actually captured the Ottoman Sultan Bayezid and made him a footstool he would use he would climb, up on his back to get on his horse and so in any case yes you're quite right the.

Slum does things. He rejected. As slum he didn't reject it, as the religion of the people that would have gotten him thrown out of power pretty quickly but he acted very.

Islam he forbade the use of the, Arabic script for For Turkish that's, why, it's, in, the Roman script he forbade the wearing turbans and mandated the wearing of western style, hats specifically because of the hat brim would interfere with the prostration Slavic prayer but mostly important besides. All these regulations, and others he mandated that the imams in the mosques could not write their own sermons and preach them on Friday they had, to get them from the ministry of. Religious affairs every week and, read that, sermon and the ministry of religious affairs never gave out sermons that involved any kind. Of political action the political aspects, of slum the imposition of sharia which was. Dismantled, in Turkey this was all this. Was never discussed in the mosques.

Terrorists the true meaning of jihad when the Muslim enters jihad and Adopts jihad is to make is.
