How to Have a Better Sex Life by Understanding Your Love Style
"The very beginning god created male and female and he created them to have relationship. And so the very fact that god created us as sexual beings where there's a distinction between the two of us is the beginning is how it all started and satan is doing everything he can't take god's design and break it apart destroy blasted he's blasting marriages taking shots at everything that sacred. The church are genders sexuality. Everything is being hit really really hard in cages to amplify this in you know the listeners. I'm speaking to you the listeners. Now you're gonna have three responses that couple. That feels like this is something you only share between each other. It's not something you speak about in public. I get that. I disagree with that. But i understand that perspective. It may be the other responses. We desperately need this help. Thank you for covering it. I hope those in the first category can open their hearts to those in the second category that actually talking about it is a good thing and then third. God's designed you know even with my team. Boys i talk about that commitment to marriage to saving yourself. That god has an incredible gift for you on your wedding night. He's intended that gift to be unwrapped at that point. Not before in that. You need to honor that and i i think that is a healthy way to look at it but kay what your response i mean. Women particularly struggle talking about this topic. I completely agree. You know when we do this workshop In churches we often ask how many people in the audience feel that they had a good sex education from their parents. And it's like one percent one percent one percentage of its terrible and so no wonder we struggle because no one really teaching us anything before we get married And then after we get married you know. It's it's taboo subject and right and so how can you learn to communicate and grow if everything's so secretive and it's god's designed so it shouldn't be secretive subject and i think we need to look at it that way christians. This is a beautiful thing that god has done. It's not a dirty thing. It's not ugly thing. This is the song of solomon something to be celebrated so let's get into it outlined for some of the common struggles. Couples have their intimacy today. And maybe there's nothing new under the sun. I don't know if you've looked at this historically but you say that sex is the great exposer. So what do you mean by that well. Sex and our comfort with it or the lack of comfort or the distress that's created in the relationship or the tension that has created over. The subject of sex is one of those like kids. It's like work. It's like a lot of things in life but one of those things that exposes are broken. Parts are weak parts. It it's a stressor and so it is this beautiful thing but it's also a stressor is simultaneously both and so k we we experienced. That is being something that would expose in us week. Places absolutely i mean i definitely exposed our lack of sex education. It exposed our inability to really communicate about difficult subjects. It i think really exposed our level of honesty How much we communicate and the things that pull up weakness feels terrible but it's an opportunity for growth. You know when you hit a rough spot. It's never pleasant. But some of our hardest first conversations in our most honest conversations. Were about sex and it was a game changer. But boy i remember how hard those first conversations were where we begin to be honest. You point to genesis three in the fall of mankind. That's a big statement How does the sin of adam and eve near the experience of many couples in their physical and emotional intimacy. It is very natural. First of all we have a fallen nature we were made in the image and likeness of god yet after the fall. There's a broken nece to us and that broken this means we don't operate well as c. s. lewis said were made in the image and likeness of god but the images bent or mart. And so with that broken nece. We find ourselves doing well. We struggle then to control our sexuality. One of the biggest problems with males is with a broken nature. I don't know what to do with my sexuality and so much of the new testament is about learning to control my sexuality right so that it's holy and not wurley but then there's this concept to that were just like adam and eve and we hide and were fearful and we blame and so that way. We are very similar to adam and eve because we tend to want to project our frustrations onto the other person.

millennials Are hesitant On Investing In The Current Market
"During the pandemic has given many investors confidence and strong returns but millennials people born from about nineteen eighty-one until nineteen ninety. Six have been sitting out the market rally to find out why. Let's bring in our personal finance reporter. Julia carpenter julia. Thanks for being here. Thank you so much for having me. How does millennials presence in the market compared to other age groups so according to the saint louis fed about half of millennials are invested in the stock market. And that's roughly the same as gen-x gen-x again being people born between nineteen sixty five in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. That generation right before millennials. But the difference is that the value of millennials holdings is almost a third lower than that of genetics so invested about the same amount. But just holding much less. Now what are you hearing from. This generation of investors who are not in the market when stocks began to turn sharply higher back in the spring. So the folks. I talk to they. They were kind of mixed some were saying that they were invested but that they were being careful that their Their financial livelihood wasn't dependent on the market others. Were saying that the market continues to confuse them or that they are managing debt obligations managing student loans. Trying to make ends meet in another way. That didn't leave them with much. Money left over to put into the market but absolutely all of the people. I interviewed mentioned. Two thousand and eight that they were very scared of a market crash that they were scared of a recession and in many cases were still trying to recover from the last recession you spoke with several millennials who've lived through more than one sharp economic downturn one of whom is thirty nine year old david hill. He's married with two children lives just outside of chicago. And he's here with his thoughts on the market. David thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me see now. The market's been on a tear for the past six or seven months. What kept you from getting in. You know the concern is i think things tend to be over undervalued based on the news and so these wild swing day to day so if i was you know a day trader or someone who was looking to make short term gains concerned. You know long-term more long-term buy and hold type investor. So i wanna make sure that. I'm also keeping an eye on like what's happening today so it makes me a little bit nervous but since i'm more long-term viewing i don't get really caught up in big shocks and big swings but my try to at least not have too much money invested only in seoul stocks. So when you're managing your finances what's important to you. Don't take anything for granted. Be smart about where you put your money. You know they say cash is king but also caches and make money either so you got to kind of balanced your whole portfolio out between real estate your investments in retirement. How much cash. You have look at everything but just be smart about money. I try to be smart about where i'm spending on. We bought our house purposely. Spent way less our house when we could have like. We approve for a lot more than we actually paid for house. Because we just wanna say we want a place to live. They meet our needs and not have to worry about. Something happens to one of our jobs. We came to mortgage payment now so we really we really are smart about how we look at those those big purchases and you know because we know any bang an accident. A loss of a family member could bankrupt as quick. Now david. What would it take for you to feel more comfortable about putting more money in the market. Make sure i meet some of the other needs. I make sure i have enough. Put away for my kid's college tuition one day to go to college. Make sure you know. We have a big. You know something to fall back on in terms of emergency funding And also making sure that we have a nice lewis nest egg of cash. I know i shouldn't be saying that because cash is making money. But i wanna make sure that we had those basics first before putting more into the market you know having more of a term view. You don't don't. I wouldn't unless you have the stomach for and the cash sitting around and be able to take those heads do not try to be a term day-to-day investor you cannot predict the market and any individual investors can have a hard time beating out the institutional investors getting the better price so i would make sure you just have a more of a term view and be smart about where you re putting your money all right. That's chicago area. Resident david hill. So julie putting money in the market as a gamble. Is that playing a role. Here are millennials looking for tighter security when it comes to their financial obligations. A lot of the people i talked to mentioned that debt felt more pressing that's saving felt more pressing. They were prioritizing. Those financial obligations over these other things and a lot of them did have retirement plans. They were invest in their retirement plans. But they were saying that for the time being they want to be debt free and they wanna have an emergency fund because this last year really emphasized to them the importance of having emergency savings or if it's wall street journal personal finance reporter. Julia carpenter julia. Thanks for coming on the show. Thanks so much for having me in that your money

A Look At Who Will Get The COVID-19 Vaccine First
"S O. We're assuming that the front line health care workers will be offered the vaccine first. And then I'm guessing now essential workers next Uh, tell us how that's gonna go. Okay, So that's what they're debating. So I think everybody's in agreement. Agreement that you know the medical staff healthcare workers. Oh, my gosh, If you're working on hospital, whatever they have to go get get inoculated first. And the challenges if you then want to look at, you know, Do you want to look at high risk groups? You know, demographically, or do you want to look a high risk individuals? So someone, for example, who works Or live in a nursing home. That's very high risk, statistically in terms of where outbreaks are, and so that's what they're debating or first responders. You know, do you? You know they're obviously going to be a high category. So the challenge is they're gonna have about 20 doses. $20 million. Excuse me, uh, by the end of this month or actually, they're already shipping doses to distribution centers. So, uh, literally in a matter of days. If the if the FDA gives its approval, which I assume it will Um, then in that boat that vote by the FDA is literally in nine days or so, and they'll do that they'll have a public hearing the vote on it. And the recommendation and this is what's unfortunate. We really don't have a national distribution strategy. Instead, each state is going to get to decide where A certain number of doses go and and what you'll get is a recommendation and the top tier everybody. I think we'll Greek is health care workers, you know, but certainly people you know doctors, nurses, technicians, people are working in hospitals. Then it gets, you know. Do you do first responders? Do you do nursing homes? You do you know, staff and nursing homes. Do you do older people? And because if you're over 65 You know, the probability of having a severe impact from the virus from Corona virus is much greater in some countries. They're breaking it down age by level there, inoculating people. Who are 80 and over and then they're going to 70 and over and then 60 and over 15 and over And then everybody else so far that I haven't seen that discussion in the United States and, yeah, I was gonna ask you in Colorado. We were you and I talked about this last weekend. It looks like prisoners will get the vaccine. Before Grandma and Grandpa get it. Well, you know that. Of course you can, You know, find a lot of political pushback as you can imagine, Uh, do you, You know, I think George Broccoli had A column in the Central post where he said, you know, do you give it to Grandma? If you not give it to Grandma and Grandpa, and they die the vibrance or you give it to the guy who held up or shot Grandma and Grandpa. Who? Yeah, I did read that right? So that you know the whole this whole pandemic we've talked about. We need to protect the most vulnerable people in the population. Which would be Grandma. Grandpa. I don't get that. Let's give it to prisoners. And Grandma. Grandpa can can wait. I don't understand what the thought was on that, I guess because prisoners are living, you know, right on top of each other and all of that, But I want to make Grandma Grandpa the priority. Well, you know, I think what you want to do again, if you want. Look at the data and one and certainly making Grandma and grandpa priority. I think everybody agrees to but that that Rick would lend to the argument that let's listen, if we're gonna Make a top priority. Let's take 80 and over. For starters, not 60 or 65. I mean most people in Colorado. I mean, this is one of the healthiest This is the least obese state in the nation. Not that you know, we don't have challenges, but 65 over over strikes me is is to lower numbers started. It's 70 year started 80. And they're, of course, fewer people, You know who are 80 year over and so you can. You'd have enough vaccines for you know for that cohort, but for the prison population, the reason why there's so much discussion about that is exactly what you said. You hit it right on the nail. And that is you have people who are crowded. Together. If one person gets it, it's easy, easily spread. Know who knows how good ventilation systems air in a lot of those facilities. You also have people you're worried about Grandma and Grandpa. You have guards. You have technical staff, all kinds of people who go in and out of the prison who have contact with prisoners and you've already had and this is why it's part of the discussion. Is that you've already had outbreaks. I think the sterling facilities had a serious outbreak. And maybe one or two other facilities have had serious outbreaks. And because you can't you can't isolate everybody physically the way you want. That's a concern that not only do the prisoners get sick, but then the people taking care of them gets sick and then bring it out into the community to Grandma and Grandpa. So there's actually a rationale for this. I mean, what's unfortunate courses is we're not gonna have a zoom any vaccinations. Available.

The second stint was the biggest moment of danger of hamilton match. Step up in space on the hearts or looking after he'd softer mediums. They both ended up on the hard after their second stops after which for stopping closed in despite his own stop being a slow one but he never got within three seconds of the mercedes driver up from rebel in fact opted to pit the doctrine for a third time. Giving you had a large gap in hand over sergio perez behind peres was in third of the voucher tacit made a poor start and slipped backwards at town one which had paid to spark a series of smaller incidents that ended later crash which is of course not to say that there was any blame any of them peres done a fine job to run alex album in the second way boat and he looked set for a second successive podium until his engine let go with four laps remaining the race therefore finished under safety car hamilton. Taking his eleventh win of the campaign album completed the podium so joining me to discuss all of that and more tonight motorsport dot dotcoms f. one editor noble or tie sports. Fm reporter leaks and keep racing's executive editor. Stuart coddling now is gonna come to you first because you and i were in pretty constant throughout the early stages of that racist so trying to piece together what was going on once. We need that. Romain grosjean was all right. We try not. That's make sure. I raced on facebook dot com dot com accuracy. Accurate as it could be when it comes. I just just if you don't mind you could. You could talk us through the first thought and ended up the crash at the end of it. I could almost look through a transcript of whatsapp messages. Couldn't i is Yeah it wasn't very pleasant work actually a a not particularly nice to at the time given that we began the price s Before we knew what happens actually to out and before we okay we were starting to pick over some of the details leading up to the accident and and like you say it's it's one of those shunts is an accumulation of snow events and people doing things that builds towards a conclusion and and it does start with valerie. Batas having a slough guess away. He seemed to get away. When the lights went out he go to wipe perfectly well but then in the second phase acceleration not so much He wasn't the person off. Com was slough away was passed by morrison and gas lay album perez and then ricardo got passed batas. And that just meant that. You had this situation wearing bahrain. Three calls can go through taiwan abreast. Really won't you can get through ten to breast so that that's an. That's a natural funnel point that sort of vestibule between two warm an intern take so so you had basically people sorting things out with each other just just looking at my notes this squeezes all the way down the field and so i you have lewis getting a clean gas away. The stepan going through as well and then album sort of makes it stick and get through and you have ricardo an album sort of alongside each other and sorting out between themselves. That causes potus to slightly cheque's pace. Maybe a little bit through through turn to and then further back you have squeezes. You have leclerc veterans stroll who are also three abreast through san juan clerk. Poor gas away and then sent for a deeply into turn one see. Have an awful lot of people who are trying to make up ground. Having got a poor start so you have the situation where bats seems to be a little bit. As as album gets ahead of riccardo norris taps ghastly science has to get out of the throttle to avoid that squeeze with with with having to check up ahead of him vattel. Who's then arriving. Kind of three abreast with strollers rights. The clerk and his right has to check very hard to avoid running into the back of what's ahead of him. Hey jinx right stroll goes rights and then creates a scenario where. There's a lot of slow moving traffic and grow. John arrives at that scene. Say's all those costs loving ahead. You have reichen going off track on the left in an attempt to go around the so the slow moving cars and i think garage unnaturally in the heat of the moment goes to the right May be of either forgetting or not observing the caveat. He's five o'clock almost an caveat sunny there because he's been in a squeeze with with the alfa romeo's he's been slide down because he's had pretty much guy over the apex turn to avoid clunking into magnusson. If if if my notes reflect this accurately so all circumstances kind of build into into what we saw happen of very very fiery accident and one that was very scary indeed it was becomes. Talk about the really terrifying. The copying on fire grudge having to escape the inferno league. I wonder if we could just come to you. What is the latest information. We have at the time of recording about jones conditioning hospital so gross on as seen on the world fit. He was transported from the Initially exciting the medical card in the ambulance and the medical center and he was quick.

Denver’s mayor urged residents to avoid Thanksgiving travel. Then he flew cross-country to see family.
"Of Denver. He took it to a new level, which is, you know, Usually the coastal guys are the ones who are really stepping in it. But Michael Hancock Said. I got this. Hold my everybody Stay home. Don't see family. Don't do this. Don't do that. You've got to do this. That and the other thing. It's for the safety of the people of Denver. It's for the safety of People of Colorado. Then, after issuing the tweet, saying just this much, he hopped on a plane and flew off this year's mom and Mississippi. It's like, but Huh? And then, of course, he Richard, the the apology. I fully acknowledge that I have urged everyone to stay at home and avoid unnecessary travel. I have shared how my family canceled our plans for our traditional multi household Thanksgiving celebration. What I did not share That should have is that my wife, My daughter and my daughter have been in Mississippi, where my daughter recently took a job and as the holiday approaches, I decided it would be safer for me to travel to see them. And to have two family members travel back to Denver. Wouldn't it have been safer? And you've been telling everybody pretty much stick in place? Yeah, he has. But Rules for the and not for me. I recognize that my decision has disappointed many who believe it would have been better to spend Thanksgiving alone. Yeah, like you'd been lecturing everybody else exactly like that. As a public official whose conduct is rightly scrutinized for the messages it sends to others. I apologize to the residents of Denver who see my decision as conflicting with the guidance to stay at home for all but essential travel. Are there. Residents of Denver who see his conflicting their decision conflicting with the guy, not conflicting with it like, well, this is exactly in line with With his order to stay home him going somewhere. I made my decision as a husband and a father. And for those who are angry and disappointed, I humbly ask you to forgive decisions that are born of my heart and not of my head. By the
A Really Tall Tower: Babel
"Today we're looking at genesis chapter eleven and this is how it reads. I'm just if i could just re-genesis eleven versus one through nine. It's short enough. Yeah i think that'd be great yeah. Jt why don't you. Why don't you read it these bible in front of you. Boom okay genesis. Eleven one thousand nine do it okay. Moses writes under the holy spirit now the whole earth had one language and the same words and as people migrated from the east they found a plain in the land of shinar settled there and they said to one another come let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly and they had brick for stone and vitamin for mortar. Then they said come. Let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens and let's make a name for ourselves lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth and the lord came down to see the city and the tower which the children of man had built and the lord said behold they are one people and they have all one language and this is only the beginning of what they will do and nothing they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come let us go down. And there in confused their language so that they may not understand one another speech so the lord dispersed them from there over the face of the earth and they left off the building of the city. Therefore it's name was called babble because the lord confused the language of the earth and the lord dispersed them over all the face of the earth fascinating. What an interesting story. Now lewis opened up with this. Is this like the post-flood nirvana period like this. The post-flood utopia period because when it opens up. I guess we read the story of the tower of babel kind of back to front meaning. We kind of know where it's going but if you just read the first couple of lines of this now the whole earth had one language in the same words there they've migrated. They've settled there. They said to one another come. Let us build a city Like let let's build something. Okay if i could just pause in my mind if you just paused right there it feels like oh wow. They're doing what god told them to do after the flood there. It's one people They're living together and they're building. Isn't this a part of the cultural mandate cultivate and subdued there building a civilization. So like it seems for a moment like everything is going. According to plan right except that the language is telling us and they never yeah. Language come let us is is highly significant elsewhere. You'll see it In the book of exodus when Pharaoh says come. Let us build store cities and he. It utilizes the israelites slave labor to do so And so what we see in this building project and it's pretty clear that their motive for building is not to bring honor and glory to god. It is to ascend to the heavens and be like god that is to Make much of themselves. Not only that but cities are places that actually keep people in one spot and so part of what is confusing about the way. The narrative is written us. 'cause we're we're not necessarily paying attention to the typical rhythms. That's the original audience would have is that because we just had the of nations We're thinking oh okay. Everybody's all spread out and speaking different languages but the table of nations. This is not a chronological retelling. The table of nations is talking about how things look after the story of babble so it's important to see that. The fruitfulness medication and spreading out that is basically as we'll see Forced upon the human race at that. Point is that's recorded at the table of nations actually result of the story that we're reading. Yeah that i think that makes a lot of sense. I think one of the things that i i'm asking this question and i'm glad you brought that language because that's where i was hoping we would go with but i do feel like sometimes when i heard the story of the tower of babel tot and i don't know if this was just like the circles i in but i heard about it as oh they're doing something that the the the idea of city building Idea of structure building was anti-theft. What they should have been doing which living off the land and the garden. And i heard this is kind of like anti city hall cried for the anti progress that's the coal and eaten is the cultivate subdue and is the transform the earth into like this garden city so the act of building the act of development the active civic society. The active structure building isn't bad. It's not immoral but the reason they want to do it is
DOJ appeals ruling preventing it from replacing Trump in E. Jean Carroll defamation lawsuit
"A judge's refusal to let the United States replace President Donald Trump as the defendant and a defamation lawsuit brought by a woman who says Trump raped her in the 19 nineties. Department attorneys notified US District Judge Lewis Kaplan of its plans today to ask the second U. S Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan to consider the judge's decision. Judge Kaplan concluded last month and a written decision That Trump's June 19th statements about columnists aging Carol did not constitute an official act of the presidency and we're outside the scope of his employment. This president Substituting for the United States for Trump would leave taxpayers responsible for any possible payout in the case. Carroll's attorney, Roberta Kaplan, said in the statement that the Justice Department appeal was not a surprise because from the start of the case, she said Donald Trump's number one goal has been to avoid discovery and cause delay. She said. It remains to be seen if the new attorney general will agree that Trump was acting within the scope of his employment is president when he defamed her client. Justice Department attorneys say as president Trump had to respond in June of last year to accusations Carol made against him and a book because the claims related to his fitness for office. Carol has said Trump raped her and a luxury department store dressing room a quarter of a century ago after they randomly crossed path and engaged in a conversation. Trump said Carol was totally lying to fell a memoir and that he'd never even met her. Although the 1987 photo shows them and their then spouses at a social event, Trump said the photo captured a moment when he was just standing in a line.

My Dad was a radiologist and knew all this oncology stuff that. And he knew about gets his condition and all this so. That's how. We spent months looking for a tune, they would work for Stanton and then Chris came up with that little riff, and I wrote small world just four. As as a vehicle now you did. You guys kept touring. You kept making new albums, but you didn't before this album. You didn't do a new album for twenty years right? I think two thousand was your last. Not Not an album of original material, right? We've done a couple of things since then, but the yeah souls Ville, we do rb. Stacks Really Memphis tribute now. Were you a big stacks fan? I was okay. Because what's great about that record. You do respect. Yourself and I think a couple of Solomon Burke Song. But most of them are songs. Most people don't know that's a You've got a couple of great Johnny Taylor Song. Free just the one I'm looking for right right good for you. That's see my the theory was because people have done original versions of old songs, like Mustang Sally or or or knocking on wood, or so man or something. And I saw was either completely original version of soul, man, or those of really recognizable song, or find songs that weren't so recognizable that people didn't know anything about and do faithful versions of those. I thought that would be more fun. Yeah, so tell me a little your new album seven songs, and that's because Iran is that's how many con- you. Know! That the reason, no You know some of it like like you're single. Her love is killing. That sounds very much like an eighties. Everybody says that I don't i. don't hear it. You what the comment I get more anything else is that it's just vintage. Huey, Lewis on news. It sounds like Huey. Lewis and the news right away. You know it's a Huey Lewis Record. All with all the songs I go really one. What is you lose the new sound like? We were all over the map I i. don't well I, was GonNa, say I think the single does it's got that kind of Crunchy Guitar, but some of the other ones like when young and one while we're young. And remind me why still love you got there more. To kind of back to your seventies. funk days a little more. It's got that kind of country thing was it to kind of feel like doesn't have to doesn't have to sound like power of love. We can do what we want. Your I, mean you know a the the truth is i. just follow the Song I mean. The song is the hardest part of the whole deal. You GotTa have a song needs to be about something. You have to have a perspective and and my ripe old age I mean. It's hard to find an original perspective. You're writing a rock and roll song, so it's really it's kind of like a Haiku I mean. You really are trying to reinvent the wheel here with a pop song and you don't want to cover pass stuff and I've already written a bunch of stuff. So what am I gonNA? Do with this rifle can't sing about cars and girls anymore. What am I GONNA do? About Carson Girls. I do yeah, pretty girls everywhere. I pretty well. That's Eugene, shirts second girl, okay! Fantastic it is great so what? What happens now? You've got this album out you dealing with the health issues we talked about what's what's the prognosis for that?

"Okay I admit it. I'm a fully bias fan of CS Lewis but could it be possible that he could offer us a bit of clarity about the corona virus for the call center. I'm John Stonestreet. This is break point the news this week about Kobe. Nineteen known as the Corona virus has certainly to understand it escalated new infections grimmer projections lots and lots and lots of cancellations including can you believe it march madness. The new changes so quickly day by day even by our. It's hard to keep up much less to know really what to think about all of this. Cs Lewis once said that we should read three old books for every new one. I think we should read three. C. S. Lewis Books for every new one. Of course he never faced the corona virus but in the late nineteen forties. The world was coming to grips with a yet another threat. Of course he never faced the corona virus but in the late nineteen forties the world was coming to grips with another threat nuclear annihilation the bomb was only a few years old and it was in the hands of sworn national enemies. The uncertainty of what exactly could happen not to mention what might happen was palpable and in that context. Yes Lewis wrote an essay entitled on living in an atomic age. Now I'm grateful to one of my breakpoint colleagues Ashley. Cows for reminding us of this essay. Along with some sage advice that whenever we heard atomic bomb in the essay to think corona virus. We think a great deal too much of the atomic bomb. Lewis begins to those who wonder how it's possible to go on. In the face of such a threat. Louis recalled that theirs was not the first generation to live under a threatening shadow. In fact if we're honest we all live under a sentence of death for some of us that death could even be unpleasant. The important question said Lewis is not whether or how we will die. But if in the meantime we'd be doing sensible inhuman things like praying working reading listening to music bathing. The children in light of that Lewis asked his readers to consider the important but unsettling truth that quote. Nature is not in the long run favor life. It's an ominous observation. That points us to an essential worldview truth if nature he said is all that exists in other words. If there's No God and no life of some quite different sort somewhere outside of nature then all stories would end the same way in a universe from which all life is banished without the hope of return. Now have we respond to this unsettling truth? Lewis asked he saw only three options the first suicide something non uncommon in Britain of the nineteen forties and fifties the second quote simply to have as good a time as possible the University University of nonsense. But since you're here grab whatever you can. Of course Lewis noted there is on these terms so very little left to grab only the courses sensual pleasures. And whether that's talking about saks or listening to music. That pleasure is diminished by the knowledge that any enjoyment we might derive are merely illusions the product of irrational conditioning determined by our genes. The Third Response Lewis said was to go down fighting to live as if the universe had meaning we insist on being rational unmerciful even if the universe not he said of course if we choose that option there's no way to actually prevail against the idiocy of the universe it would win our insistence on being rational. Merciful would have no real justification. The hopelessness of those three options should instead lead us to a different conclusion. We must simply accept Lewis said that were spirits free and rational beings at present inhabiting in a rational universe and must draw the conclusion that we're not derived from it in other words. We should reject naturalism. We should embrace a much earlier view biblical theism. It's the only grounds on which we can avoid despair. That's brought by the knowing that were under a sentence of death. Whatever form that death takes. Lewis's words are just as relevant today as they were six decades ago for people who believe there is a God than doing sensible inhuman things are possible in meaningful because we do have hope but for those who don't have hope no amount of toilet paper a cans of spam stacked in the garage can make you truly say much less. Solve the ultimate question of meaning that will haunt us all today as yesterday the world is still in God's hands nothing has changed whatever. The next chapter of this corona virus story might be the same questions remain to us. Will we trust God? And then we'll we love our neighbors and finally how should we then live?

Yeah I mean with all those you worked with Bruce Springsteen and I saw you guys on stage other other Wonderful Guy Bruce springsteen a wonderful guy I always what were they eating. What is it Michael Jackson and Bruce springsteen eating cheese that's a good question grabbing egg mcmuffins? I can't came to pop cannot be eating an egg mcmuffin. These were the eighties eating going on people. Doing catch my my drift. The I think people have been on about their blow us is that what was going on dude in where was I was backstage with. This is actually a while ago but me and John Mullany were backstage like talking about supplements and I was like what happened. I I like I like how we are. Now we're talking about here where I'm using a vocal steamer before shows you guys were. It was a different time. It was different time but but we are the world was pretty coked up. Well I don't know I don't know not I know I'm I think this isn't a got. You show no evidence of that. Yeah Yeah and the fifth take the fifth of that deal but those were the days you know it was sort of time when people would just give it to you. I mean this you were Rockstar. Waste cocaine was right. What a wasted? What a terrible drug could have been so much better extinguished? What do you mean you want? A new drug is yeah. That's genesis of that song because of that had such a ask wrote that song really really so you did. This is not a Gotcha show. I want to talk about what you WanNa talk about. But I am interested especially because it sounds like you came out at the other side and that was what was it like. What was the first time someone gave you cocaine or even saw first time? I don't remember but it's definitely music music related right. That was how in the world I mean. That was it before he is this when you were was the band before you you've clover and in London we're was sulfate. What does those cheap deep hotdogs? Fresh speed speed sulfate. Yeah it was horrible stuff it burns your nose and just made you terrible right but but I guess I I can't remember the first dry cocaine but I was. I was never a great drug for me but that didn't mean I didn't do it every day. I'M GONNA keep it was. It was just what was what was going but it was a big mistake. But it didn't grab you different right right. chemistries are grabbed. I worked with already laying already would be the first to tell you that that that got in them and he wished he used to tell me. He wishes she could go back and tackle himself before he did it. The first time I see that happen with people with alcohol and even with. I'm not trying to be funny. I know people that the first Chris is my friend. Dwight slade. Who did this? He said the first time he had espresso. He felt his brain. Do something that like brains shouldn't do. That's what Craig Ferguson said about alcohol. Alcohol was like if there's something that when you drink it you you feel perfect. He's like nothing outside of you should make you feel absolutely perfect. And that's that's that's how he identified the addiction so leaving that to you. You're doing a very addictive drug. But it didn't get tooken you in right away. I don't know why it just it made me uncomfortable and I didn't enjoy it but but you know here's part of it was part of the deal and took me a long time to figure that out right. was that something before shows. I mean you were high. Never do it before the show. We're never I never Richard Lewis did coke cocaine until thirty seconds after I got but that's interesting because of the reasons drugs and alcohol problem and what I do. Is that what we do feels like. Okay I've never done cocaine right but I decided to somebody it feels like how a good stand up show feels. I understand why people get addicted to it. Yeah there's something you can start. That makes you feel that Aleisha. Ironically it's just like the textbook says you have fifteen min high followed by to our boring down. Yeah and it's just not it's not a very good drug and then the next day is their depression because you used all your joy chemicals is out I have no idea I mean what happens happens is then of course you know you who said it Best Thomas Jefferson Kaye. Who wrote hey little girl in the high school sweater I remember? Never would've man come clover and we we're flirting with him US producing some stuff on us and it was those are the cocaine days and he said he said he said it perfectly said cocaine makes a new man out of you. He says the only trouble is the new man. Wants to hit that you chase it the rest of the day the rest of the night and then you're dead because you can't ever feel good You know right right but did you. It's kind of like getting a tooth. Didn't work done. Pro Cain same thing. Yeah numbs your mouth when you do the same thing Kinda well but it's not re- revelatory at all. It's not at all right now. There's nothing to be learned learned from it and it's just it's it's just it's kind of a useless drug. I've I've talked about psychedelics. Before and been like the epiphanies you have on psychedelics. Likes what's great about. It is when you come back down are still valid like you'll have like a new appreciation for the fact that we're floating on a space rock in infinity and and then you come back and you'll be like no that's right that's right. Excuse my mother used to say. My mother was a was a Hippie. My mom was a psychedelic l.. Gal and one of the first grateful dead's POWs with the dead palms with Dan. Rifkin the manager and lived in between us and how she was she followed them around and she always used to say. LSD changed the world. And I used to argue with I said no one else did not change the world but it definitely we changed the music business. You can see. I'm sort of Maybe romanticized the sixes. I already mentioned how I love. Ramdas armed awesome. Yeah I do see a collective shift in the consciousness the Beatles and Ramdas would also tell you haight Ashbury when people just started having the psychedelic bathtub filled with LSD. And just party. That wasn't necessarily the best expression of it. It became a party thing but I did see some the interest in eastern eastern philosophy and the interest in consciousness. And the what is going on here did seem sparked by it. Wouldn't you say your mom was Kinda right. Yeah no question. Jerry Garcia Assia used to say and he was Jerry was was an amazing guy was super bright and and he was really the mouthpiece of that whole the San Francisco scene and when when it first happened and you know the New York Times came running out to what's going on here and Jerry is a one hundred waited and he said you need the lawyer you need the guy that can be like. He was burnt. He said it's not really about drugs. It's about rampant intellectualism. Yeah and that's really what it. What if anybody in complete open minded this? If you didn't matter what you were into. If there was somebody who was into something he would he you would give him the time of day and listen to them. That's right that's interesting. It was kind of NEAT Tim leary. LSD was like swallowing nine thousand Encyclopedia Tannock's because it does have its own intelligence to it and it sort of what I think is interesting about it. It doesn't tell you new things as much as it shows you that that by which you know anything like it manipulates consciousness itself and makes you aware of the mechanism with which you are seeing hearing or learning right. So you're learning about learning itself. You're learning like we go around and we're walking and we're wearing pants and we're doing podcasts. But LSD makes you go wrong. ooh And then it goes. What are you looking with right? That's what I think is revelatory if it makes you what what is it a WHO makes transparent your your thought process all the stuff you can. What is very transparent? That's right and what is the GINGHAM. You're like what I have a joke. I do on stage that it doesn't really work because usually people aren't at that place where they want to talk about this. I think but I say like when you sing a song in your head. How are you hearing that that? That is the big question I think you can have is. How Are you hearing? That's the question of consciousness itself sure and the punchline. I say sing happy happy birthday and I go. How Are you hearing that? And usually people don't laugh or even responding to go. Why do you have to be stoned for that to be interesting because if you are stone like the I had that thought on my porch which you just walked back? I don't smoke a lot of weed but I was smoking I was. I really almost got paranoid because I was like. How am I hearing the voice in my head? No but that is I think it's the most important question in all of space time is. How are we aware player and introspection? Right I mean that invites introspection absolutely. So what was the first time you did. LSD was is over. Scott Deals House. I remember and we looked at the in the band. I'm sorry no no. He's just a friend and we listen to the doors album. Oh my God I i. Didn't I had no idea the doors were talking directly to me dad but but early the doors wrote that record the doors of perception percents eleven uh-huh and then we hitchhiked to Sausalito for some kind of a concert and we just laughed ourselves. We just laugh laugh. Laugh Consob Lavin you get the joke of every everything very funny or maybe you get that. There isn't a joke. I don't know what's going on but I know that type of laughter. I just remember being completely completely open minded to every everything was everything was interesting. Yeah everything was interesting. Well that's what it is it to me. Whether it's meditation John or spirituality or sort of gives you a crash course in that but not to be too religious. I hope it doesn't make you uncomfortable. But when Jesus says don't Judge Eckhart totally says a better interpretation of that would be label so what you're doing when you turn reality into objects so you can think about them. Is You strip reality of its shimmer and when you're on LSD you stop labeling. That's true and you just experience everything is one thing that's right. So a Huey Lewis concert or the dust bunnies in the corner of your bedroom. Everything is the phenomenon that it actually is and it earns the fascination that your brain in its in its genius. Your brain is constantly prioritizing. What's important what's not important? It kills the editor right. There's no more editor and that freedom And that's why the the mystics that I enjoy are all the ones that go like whatever's happening it's the Buddhist idea of non resistance. Sure I delayed flight is is filled with as much majesty as getting where you're going and that's what they seem to understand and that's what psychedelics can give you a little glimpse into that liberation liberation. Mind You I. I think you learn that from one one or two psychedelic experiences. I don't think you have to take LSD one hundred times. I completely agree that's I said this a million times. But Alan Watt said after you get the message hang up the phone. Sure so you don't have to keep going back. My wife Valerie had a bad experience with some. Mm some chemicals like this and I was like. You're fine you don't have to keep going right after you've been in the room you don't have to keep going you learn that you'd literally you have the neural. Pathway going I rem I can remember you can remember. You just did what it was like listening to the doors and not judging the world and when you have that Afr- point of reference you can go back right and you and you know that that even today that all that all that still going on. That's right it's just being edited and you can choose is it if you want you want. Just move the editor over here. That's right up. Choose that and that's what I try to remember when I'm in a bad mood I'm tired and life doesn't seem magical and I can't get in touch I wonder and I don't feel any mystery. I go who cares. Get over yourself my ability to pick up the song. I'm the radio. It's the song doesn't mean the song isn't and in the air. I my antenna fucked up today because I'm grouchy. It's still there. There was something I wrote my book. I said the reality of the divine or the mystery is not contingent on on my mood yet so many of us we have a bad day and you go like well. Everything sucks because my experience says it sucks so we need to get over ourselves and even in those moments where you don't feel it know that it's still there. Isn't that fun. No get really good so good I feel like Jeff. Bridges could play in a movie. Is that Jeb Bridge completed royal anybody. He's a yeah but you got that bridges voice.

That's a real statement that people say well you gotta get them on the next Girl and a boy my son withstand get in my head. Stan Getz is the most laid back cat ever because all playing things like that. Like staying gets on Huey Lewis Record. You be like Rockin you get to the Sax Solo and it'd be like that's his. That's how we get. We had to find out We find a song and Chris Hayes. Guitar Tarp Player wrote this little jam. I thought this would be great and I so we. We did a demo of it and I talked at first all around the world. There are people people like you and me For the Poor's beggar in the street to richest King and Queen while the Book De Things Waylon and I was just kind of talking against it. which is Kinda cool? I thought all right and then and then and that's all we had and we and I sent it to gets and he he he said great. I'll do it so we've made an appointment to do it. And then and meanwhile we put tower power on it we all the power horns on it and I sang it. Ice Sang it instead of spoke it so he comes up to do it at the session comes MHM studio. DDS drive he comes out he puts on gets his worn out he goes out and he starts pointing us. Oh my God. It's in C.. Sharp I mean it's it's it's out you'll see sharp for for for tenor right. You know yeah. Is it concert okay. So be concert really. Was it in concert. It's a whole step is ten. I was trying to play grown-up. I wonder if we were real. Whatever that's the things funny or something like that and you can't suck the and I said wow I didn't think of that what I guess we could train via so it or something he says really? What does that mean? I'd say. Well we could slow the deep down. You play okay. Let's try it so we tried to do that. And it sounded like kazue exist. Don't worry about I'll just do it. He says what I said. You sure. He's yeah it's just a challenge for super when you say that all the time now gets goes out and and he starts thing and Oh my God clearly he had shedded it and he was he was just fooling he. He had to shut it out because he played it. And and and what was amazing she starts his solo and he's playing along real nice and all and here comes tower. Power bump bump on it now but don't let it you know and I and the big one. They goes up now and so in his headphones. Eagle is. He's he's playing along but DVD dubiton. Bob and then then you're about I mean it was such a musical lesson watching him react to when stuff the busy he went low he got busy with the was. It was unbelievable watching him. Play one of the. I'm great experiences of my life. I mean those are the most polar opposite things I've ever heard of tower power and Stan Getz it's still and it was a seven minute track and I got the idea of splitting it up up. Make it at first and last cut which was a complete mistake. I should've kept because his solo on their which is part two is the best musical moment on that record by a long shot I mean wow it's just really cool. He just such a great player. I I just thought about something. We gotTA rapid upson. We have one more question. What do you mean? So you're the bus. No because I'm about to good move. Forgot Your Robert Altman film Sir. Are you going to move. No no I was like you know hacked down. You know what I'm saying like your before that Bullshit Louis Her Did you ever fuck with chromatic harp. Because you're such a diet tonic harp player. You're known for that like that. Always carrying like eight different harps and different keys and shit sorry all right sorry with chromatic arm. Yeah but I what I do is play secret. Matic in D minor third position. Why would you laughing at? That was because no one would do that. That's why it's interesting guy sometimes like it's okay. So here's what you know the average I'll explain this in front of Louis and I'll feel real fucked up about it but I'm trying. Yeah so so. A HARMONICA HAS BOBA holes in a specific key. And its diet. Tonic means scale. So it's like C or D or e or F so most so let's take for a bad example like John Popper of blues travelers carrying around eight hundred different harmonicas in different keys so they can play in different keys. A chromatic harmonica is like something that Steve underplays underplays which has a little button on sides can middle But you can always you can play all know their notes whereas the other ones are just eight notes although unless you're Howard Levi right unless you're wow that was cut unless you're Howard Levy a great great or toot toots and Leo. On the original awesome people go real deep anyway. Such a great music last so so so so huey is known as not a chromatic player but a guy who would would did you carry around a bunch of different unharvested. Yeah okay so so so He was the news tunes written a and e. and Sarin see minor. Like there's some weird shit so you'd have to adjust the harmonic. You're playing for the song you're playing so he would carry around. Tell me if I'm wrong. I'm GONNA tell he will lose his business while he's sitting right here that like he would play. He's had different harmonicas in different keys. He's and so if you have a chromatic are Monica the ideas that you only have one xactly now. You should talk but you have to be a much better player than I mean. You're put you know all you need is the chops to say what you need to say. And what is that. You want to say hats. Yeah and there's flog raw is what it really whatever I mean. You know. It's it's it's all creative. Yeah Dude Man man spirit. And I wouldn't mind.

"But how long were you doing at each time for about half an take half an hour to an hour. Can't the fact in straight those. I believe what you mean straight line not on drugs smoking and doing it. That's that's fucking crazy. Yeah I loved it was but it was right. I forgot about the breath thing that that was that man. You're going to do only what's fun you can you're gonNA do the sequel the inside out the news they never get done accepted. Never got a sequel. Oh really that all right of course. Yeah because everybody went from the Blake lively Joan a hill All the guys I just went from that movie and then we're making threats right and I can't. It's like the arrested development later seasons. We can't afford everybody in the context uh-huh they couldn't afford in. But this is what you're GONNA do. You're GONNA do this. They'll do so we've got to get some Alan Watt. We're GONNA do some of this tongue in the back. Act Third Eye gazing meditation. There was another one with the ears. I don't remember that there's four meditations but I can't remember can't theft Fuck if you looked up thirteen year old guru. I'm sure you can find it. It's been googled in my pocket. Somehow that's one of my. I can't wait to Google this and it's in my pocket pocket. It is interesting that I'll this. This is the method the truth is any method the Ego always wants to make it the new sexy exciting. Oh Lewis told me about this how google any any method sitting still watching your breath. The these are all sort of family. They're all brothers and doing a practice. I think is going to get some trippy. Things things I the only thing I can relate to that as they say sometimes you hear the flute of Krishna. That's the thing I guess. Krishna play the flute systems here music. I've meditated at the point where I coulda sworn someone who's playing a flute and I was like turns out someone was just playing. My neighbor is Kenny G.. Nobody like the to go see. I'm a little bit spiritually selfish. So I'll try to meditate expecting something like that to happen. I am trying to drop that in. My Book explained Meditation and one of the lines that was glad I included was. Let's try to expect nothing because one of the traps as you have these experiences. We love these experiences. They're good stories and they are as they should be these confirmations and they're like miracles their little personal miracles seeing them on dollars the colors but then our ego goes like well that means. That's a good one and then we start striving important. We lose the narrative the whole point is to not expect anything but to allow whatever happens to happen. Sharon Salzberg who is on this. podcast is a Buddhist Meditation Teacher. Sure and I think I was talking about a bad one that I had a badminton. Haitian she's like they're all good ones like you want to label them. Oh I didn't go astral. I didn't go into the sky but really unfortunately at the end of the day we have to resign to the fact that meditation can't always be so sexy and colorful. And what did you. What's the meditation that I was doing with that one? I like different mantras mantras help especially with brains like I think ours where you're thinking a lot. I like to give it something something to think about. I think in India they called the brain the drunken monkey and I think that's just perfect Watch your mind. I'm like the the amount of Kelly Clarkson in my brain is just like here you go. I'm like I didn't fuck and ask for Miss Independent. Why is this happening? But not just that like like fake conversations or fantasizing ising. I'm way better now with this interview. I appropriately researched. But I didn't go and then I'll ask you can tell I wasn't like I'm going to ask him that. It was good. It was. Yeah Yeah it was a car in the past. I might have been like well when he sits down. And I'll say oh people must think you're angry or whatever it is so I yeah. I've tried to resign some of that. But there's still all this I benefit from putting a thought in there and one of them that I like is I'm a point of light within a greater light. That's a very simple. It's actually a Christian Shen Mantra but that is what we're talking about. The I am a mass of molecules inside of greater mass of molecules closure. I mean where did you get the meditation from I started with. Tm Am which is which is base. Closing is sitting comfortably back straight. So you don't fall asleep and it's also kind of to have your coon Delaney arise. They say that that's the energy that travels up your spine so I'm trying to say with a straight spine and then nowadays I I will do like just following the breathing really focusing on the breath when when the when the mind goes to something else you just come back to the you. Just give it one you want to become single pointed one focus. I only have one focused. And that's my breath and and that's really it the weird thing about us as you can tell people the greatest mystical secrets in the world. It's it's the internal Rubik's cube. It's when are you going to be the the right alignment for that book to crack you open or for that meditation to crack you open. So that's why we keep doing it. So I I was reading. This book. Called deepened simple was Mr Rogers is favourite. It's really trippy. People do not know how trippy Mr Rogers was. This book is out there in a great way quote road. I forget the guy's name but they saluting the young people forget you and I just read it you know. That's what I forgot to remember. I never made an effort to go. That's his name I'm like I never knew it but you remember the name of it. It's called deepens simple. I recommend that good and he tells the story where he was with a teacher and he was like whatever ever enlightenment. You have and have had or moments that you've had. They're all gifts all grace they're all they're all accidents. They're basically just accidents. It's a good way to think about something that you did it was it. Was Your Karma it was lawful. It was right for it to happen at that moment and he said to the teacher goes so why do we do all this study. Eddie why do we do all this practice. Why do we oil this meditation? And he goes to be accident prone as possible and I was like. That's fucking yeah because you never know when you're going to be in your basement and smell high-altitude air. It's funny. I love these stories. What were the other ones? I know you probably have to go but like you said three or four fucking trickiest has things. I mean stuff where ghost. Yeah now come on Lewis you get it now just Clearing this old theater in the In Colorado we bought it for twenty two twenty three. There's a whole bunch of US bought. This wouldn't theater built by. This guy died in a car accident turn. That doesn't seem relevant to the ghosts. The death of the Guy Giant mountain it was in Colorado Springs and We were living in the theater. And we're all downstairs. Here's the midnight we heard the piano playing. Get the fuck in my car and we went upstairs and there was nobody. The Piano is played for a little bit and then when we got up and stopped so that was a weirdly it was one of the things Jeb learned about white light that I think I learned as a friend of mine was think on the farm which was a group of one of those commune's that came out of the seventies. Yeah you're a member Somerville. It was in Tennessee in my close friend. Vice ended up there and follow this. And we were like don't please to this And it was a community in this Guy Steven Gaskins. Who'd written some really good really was a good guide in terms of LSD and psychedelics? He was one of those does San Francisco folks and they drove out there and so I went out. We were all standing around in this field and he was. He's standing in the middle of like three hundred people for people and he was telling was chastising somebody in the group and it was. It was weird. What was going on and it was weird? There were doing. You're moving. He was moving from A to marriage to affor- marriage. Okay now this was their next in spiritual light. Commit my my my crank. Yeah right we've been roof received guidance. There's GonNa be more threesomes so I'm sitting there looking and I'm going There's an this I'd never seen before. There's a white light out of his head coming out of his note like Halo Halo like the white light that people see appear on people. You know that kind of and I'm like no that's what the fuck I am seeing going son of a bitch so the reluctant mystic than book by Louis. It's just well which irritating is it's I it. It's the the energies coming from the three hundred people watching because what's going on. There is not a white lights but I think a white light situation is right. So they're looking at a guy white lie. Yeah if I'm if I'm seeing it. They're seeing it if it got to backgrounds. These guys need raincoats. So the next show it will explain why there listening to him because he's wanted around with this And then I went back at night with my friend. It was a friend of mine and I were visiting there He was we were on our way to From from the where are the theater was in going Back East and we got in the room in the room little rumors staying in and I said I'm GonNa ask you something. And he goes. I said I know I think I know what you're going to sue bunnies and use other way late on his. He sought the way and Namaskar crazy. So that Kinda stuff that people say. Yeah I'd psychic. There's a psychic that I know that I think is been in profound and I wrote the Intro Book Really. What's what's their name? His name is Michael Bodine. His sister's family were psychics. Echo Bodine is like Kamajor Domo Psychic Outta Minneapolis and He he he wrote A. It's called growing up psychic. Ah It's just a great book from the standpoint of the for people who go you know it's bullshit. Here's a guy who treats it is if it's he's a plumber. Yeah he's he's like I'm seeing these people I see it gives whenever I call him he goes I see dead people. How do you think come to it? He goes but he writes it. He goes you know I'm dealing with this stuff and he writes you really good book. I mean it's remarkable book written by a guy who's not a writer and what's incredible is but he wrote in his voice. I mean it's really well. It's like he did well really well. It's really a good solid explanation but it must be like to to deal with this without like trying not trying to sell you on. Wow this is what my life has has been like. And he went to a friend of mine if we shouldn't with a friend of mine and he.

"lewis t" Discussed on The Good Fight
"Has become a cultural war of the kind is much more familiar from the kind of american experience of guns and abortion fen somehow somehow become lined up with republican and democrat rav than people's political identities being so much about economics now. It's increasingly based around families and now the good fight with yasha monk. I'm going to do some things very risky for my opening monologue today which is to try and to give you some sense of what's going on in italy but of course that changes every day and i'm recording with a good number of days before episode is released so probably by the time you're hearing invest it has all turned out to be wrong but he of the basics about it he and a half ago different populist parties including the far-right league and and the five star movement which has its political roots on the left took about two thirds of a vote in the italian elections the five star movement and the league ended up forming kind of ideologically strange coalition which seemed to demonstrate at the time that being a populist is a more important political maka than wherever you are on the left over right that populous can work surprisingly well together across ideological differences because they are united in an emnity to some of the institutions off for calendar order and democracy more broadly now now despite predictions of the imminent collapse of the government that accompanied it overweight fruit and despite predictions particularly that voters would get sick of the far-right leak. These two parties have mostly kept support. The owning thing that happened as has it tends to happen is that matteo salvini where leader of the far-right league has rapidly risen in popularity while the ideologically more mushy five movement has lost a lot of its support so mostly for strategic reasons at this point matale beanie has decided to make the governing coalition collapse because all of your opinion polls seem to indicate eight that new elections would see him becoming the prime minister well. There's a lot of maneuvering going on and it looks looks as for the five star movement mate wind up forming a government with the centre-left democratic party. Partito democratico is very unclear. They will succeed in doing so it is very unclear that government would end up being stable of time but one way or the other it is now the league that sets the tone of italian politics and to me that one lesson to those people who say that we need left wing populism in order to deal with right wing populace what happened even in many traditionally left-wing regions like tuscany which i know very well is that many of the people who used to vote for left-wing parties like the party to democratical went over to a five star movement and when the five star movement went into a coalition with a league they continued to migrate further on two villiger knocked which took about fifty percent in vast stretches of tuscany envy's obvious past european elections in short left wing populism is not likely to be a realistic way of fighting fighting right wing populism and it is now the right wing populists who are in charge of italian politics even if five stars and m._v._p. Managed to form a temporary blocking coalition in becoming now. It's my pleasure to introduce lewis. Hell is one of the best known british this journalists. She used to be the deputy editor of the new statesman and she is now a staff writer at the atlantic. I'm also contributing editor. We had a conversation asian about ross johnson about brexit about the future of populism in british and european politics as well as a conversation about her forthcoming book which is called difficult women history of feminism in eleven fights book. I particularly enjoyed because it it is taking seriously the ways in which some groups like women are oppressed at the moment while remaining optimistic that some of us injustices can can be redressed values and institutions of democracy..
