"But the mediocrities enforced their correct very strictly and the homogenization pressures gluck trimbe canal climb the rankings by another three places and be a little closer to mit. That you'll never touch them. That to me is very harmful and you'd rather they be more like chicago. More caltech or the elder caltech all the more like pick some model. Be weird in it. You might fail. That's socially better. Yeah but the problem with mit for example is the mediocrity is really enforced on the junior faculty. Yeah so like the people that are allowed to be weird or actually they don't even ask for permission. Zemour are more senior faculty. And that's good of course but you want the weird young people Yeah i find to this. Podcast elect talking to tech people and find the young faculty to be really boring. they are. they're the most boring faculty. their work is interesting. Technically technically but just the the the passion they drudges and it was some of them. Sneak by like you have like max tag mark young version of max tag mark. Who knows how to play the role a boring and fitting in oregon on on the side. He does wish it But they're not. They're far and few between which i i'd love to figure out a way to shake up the system because as you look at mit's broad institute right medical spending huge it. Yeah i'm not privy to their internal doings. But i suspect they support weird more than the former departments. Do at the junior level. Yes that's probably. And i don't know what whatever they're doing is working but It needs to figure it out. Because i think the best ideas still do. Come from the Forget my apologies but for humanity side of things. I don't know bob but the engineering and the science side. I think there's so. Many amazing ideas are still coming from universities. It's not true that you don't know anything about the humanities. You're doing the humanities right now while talking about people there are no numbers put on a blackboard is no hypothesis testing per se. No yes you have however many subscribers to your podcast all listening to you on the humanities every whatever your frequency is. I'm not in the department of the humanities twi innovative they have different conversations. There's the number of emails i get about. Listen i really deeply respect diversity. At the the the the full scope of what diversity means also the more narrow scope of different races genders and so on. It's a really important topic. But there's a disproportionate number of emails. I'm getting about meetings and discussions and that just kind is overwhelming. I don't enough emails from people like a meaning about Why are all your ideas bad. Let's let's For example and we call out. at why don't we do more Why don't we kick stanford's ass.

"Mean literally anything that comes out about North Korea. I every single. I mean how I'd be willing to argue that most of the things that come out like that are later shown to be false. What about the One of the famous ones is the idea that he forced every man in the country to get the same haircut. Remember that was on every single mainstream channel making jokes about it. I mean every night talk show. Everybody talked about that. That was completely false. That was actually proven to be not just false but made up entirely. That went around the media. They didn't care. They reported like that all the time. Every time we see somebody who was killed. Oh his his cousin or his wife or his some lady and has government though. He murdered them because he didn't like the way they were looking at a later. They show up in some kind of show her look there on TV every time. I don't talk every time it's a joke so when we're hearing that somebody was shot dead because they just happen. Have this in North Korea as much as. That's probably still argue. It's probably just baseless and you read the article itself you find out that it's rumor suggests that somebody shot some rumors or circulate. There's nothing this is rumors upon rumors of things that somebody heard about something happening in North Korea and of course the media's happy to report on it because they do their due diligence. Don't they now before I run out of time? This is the part that I wanted to this important now pepe. Escobar released this today very important at pure luck corona virus vaccine update now. Apparently this was the email from Francis Boyle which you know like you remember you. I think you might have heard. It mentioned on his interviewer Spiro that he has kind of love to get on an email list. He has kind of a CA- l- What do you call it? I guess a consortium of people that he just kind of mass sends out his updates to and so this was one of them and Pepe Escobar. Somebody you should look into. He's got good work Niece says very important pure luck. Virus Vaccine Update. Israeli scientists are now saying in three weeks will have a corona virus vaccine. Excuse me a career virus vaccine Well that's very odd. Don't you think and it says isn't that special so fast so spectacular so under the radar so out of the blue or was it just pure luck and he says yes. They actually admitting it. They're saying let's call it pure luck. That's from the Israelis we decided to choose corona virus. They just up and decided to choose it as a model for our system just as a proof of concept for our technology. And you know why. They're saying like that because they're pretending this was just the first time they've ever done something like this right. It says well a few of US immediately got the email from Francis Boyle this is pepe. Say this Pepe Escobar. Here's what Dole said. Caveat LECTOR MITZVAH BEWARE. I think that's what is it. The where the reader. But where hairless look it up quick? I had looked at it earlier. It's Latin it means It means Oh shoot. Oh it's not important but I hate when I can't remember stuff like this. Let the reader. Beware so yeah had basically correct. Let the reader where it says. Israel has never been a party. This is so very important. Israel has never been a party to the Biological Weapons Convention. Would you please let that sink in? So we're talking about a government first of All Saints. Not Party to the the non-proliferation Treaty at they've got nuclear ambiguity with hundreds of nukes. Like nobody else in the world's allowed to do excuse me they're not part they are not part of the Biological Weapons Convention yet seemingly. They're working on biological weapons or at least they would argue material of remember that Doyle says. Gosh Darn it with Francis Boyle says is that you cannot have a defensive program without an offensive program. So here's Israel of all people the Israeli government that should make you feel great while they're assassinating Israeli scientists and just bombing anyone. They want anywhere in testing weapons on Palestinians lovely right. Here's the Israeli government working on biological material and producing a vaccine in three weeks. They claim while they're not even part of the Biological Weapons Convention. I mean that's crazy. They're not let's not pretend like any of these countries even abide by the rules. They're supposed to obviously they're not. They're doing this anywhere but at the very least you've got this thing that they're supposed to buy buy right. You've signed your name here. You have to abide by these rules so when they get caught you could make a thing about it and take it to the UN which useless anyway today but you still have a mechanism right. They're not even pretending and now they're just coming right out and saying it. This is them saying this is coming up producing something like a nuclear weapon. Here's our brand new technical new. Could just showing it off to the world like we'll you're not a party to the Ne non-proliferation Treaty. So it's the same thing that they're attacking Ron for. Even though Iran's not actually doing it the same thing they would attack anybody for you have to abide by this. You can't go after nuclear programs and here they are making it right in your face. Here's a vaccine from this biological effort that we just conducted so Israel's now making these vaccines for the corona virus they just fell backwards into luck. Yes we chose the corona virus right. That's suspicious at all. But I think the bigger point to take away from this is that Israel is working on biological warfare in general without being a signatory to the convention like everybody else and doing so coming from a government that is actively just flouted every single law. You can think about and actively killing people with no justification. I mean this horrifying think about what else. They're working on that we don't know about. I mean the same. The same concern apply so the US government and most governments. But that's very alarming to me. Now let's continue. Israel has never been a party to the Biological Weapons Convention and has an extremely active offensive biological weapons industry. Never this is from the an expert in his field. The the drafter of the US via Logical Weapons Act. Who's saying openly? Israel has an extremely active offensive biological weapons industry including the development of an F. ethnic specific biological warfare agent so Israel specifically working on specifically an ethnically specific biological warfare agent. Now think about that it and he says that could be used against Arabs. Now think about that. Think about in the context of tailoring something in the midst of all of this to be planted in the middle of Iran. You know Sidley how we have an untraceable agent just showed up in Iran and calm and suddenly. There's this massive outbreak that's killing more people than anywhere but China and they have been working on corona virus specifically bio focused on. I mean that's crazy. There is so many red flags here. That are just being ignored brochure. They have a vaccine three weeks. Ray Imagine if Iran say had said Hey. Here's a vaccine. In three weeks. Everybody would be not at the very least. They would be overwhelming suspicion but not if it's Israel even though they have a very clear record of doing taking ingredients actions even towards the United States USS Liberty you know or stealing nuclear technology from the US government. Any number of things that have happened so they have massive weapons program completely focused on ethnic weapons focused on board that could be used on Arabs. Now he says actually has said that incorrectly completely focused but including a development of ethnic specific biowarfare now is so even if true. I do not believe this was pure luck. They very well could have been developing an offensive biological warfare agent along these lines that then had to be complemented with a vaccine using the same by biotechnology in order to protect their own people before using it. Which is the argument. He made in that interview that sometimes they when they make the weapons they make the vaccine so they can't they can protect themselves when attacking people with the weapon but he says in that vaccine could be more dangerous than useless as he also said in an interview he said the Black West African Ebola pandemic came out of an experimentally fullback scene that was administered out of the US United States Esl four facility in the camera Sierra Leone that that was set up by US aid and CIA at Fort Dietrich along with the Harvard Mit broad institute I mean all these names the same places the same groups the same efforts it just begins to kind of ridiculous when we ignore all this doesn't it now this even becomes more interesting when you see the Israeli scientists a few weeks we'll coronavirus vaccine for those just in case you wanted to see an actual article them saying it at least ninety days to complete the pro- the so this is interesting so it says once the vaccines developed it will take at least ninety days to complete the regulatory process and potentially more to enter the marketplace right so that's not actually what's being said so it's interesting that suddenly there for now they're selling us is out it's coming up pretty quick but here's what's more interesting right so they're saying this maxine and a few weeks. I found that weird when you suddenly realize. Oh didn't trump just say that we're going to have a vaccine soon right. That's what he said and everybody got. They've lost their minds about it. He says he says we're very close to vaccine and everyone said no. We'RE NOT. They said all this time. And it's not true. You think maybe he was talking to the Israeli government. You think maybe that's we were talking about. Come ON GUYS. It's time to recognize how obviously tied cooked in this government is with the Israeli government and the fact that trump is seemingly knowing about this before any. I mean it's just it's there's something going on here and the bottom line knowing that they're working on these biological weapons should scare the crap out of us now even more weird again. It's kind of a shoot. I got I gotTA GET GOING. Brian. I'll be right there. That's the speaking the lies Fargo Right. House did deny the plans to appoint this crowd of our. So we're not doing that now. It's not true it's fake news Blah Blah Blah and then trump appoints vent pence as the corona virus. Czar just whatever you reasoning logic behind this people always. Oh he just didn't want to tell you still lied to us. It's still ally. It's not like doubts. Never going to happen and then decide. Well that's a good idea. Let's do it right. It obviously had truth in it because it was obviously being talked about. He obviously lied right to your face and then came out like the next day and said Yep trump pence punches thrown a virus which is just kind of ridiculous in and of itself right. This is clearly being politicized.
