Peter and Paul, models of decision making, and on the way, Bennett's journey for spiritual maturity. Follow Mauricio's service as the prior of saint anselm's in Rome. The holy rule of saint Benedict, a spiritual path for today's world, was father Mauricio's building. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. Welcome father. Thank you. In this particular topic, we're going to look at an area that saint Benedict, I think, saw issues in Catholic social teaching long before it was ever called Catholic social teaching. And that is in place of provincialism. We should bring forward respect and tolerance. Help us to understand how we can implement that. Yeah. Monastic family lives together at one place, mostly in peace. I would say, but there is a temptation just to stay at the same place and to circle around the own belly button. Because of our vowel stability, because of the fact that we don't move, that includes the temptation. The temptation, not to look beyond. The walls of the monastery. And I guess because of this Benedict paid also attention, not to lose the sense of respect and tolerance towards one another. I think when we talk about this topic, we have to remember what the situation was when saint Benedict established his monasteries. So we are in the period of migration in the at the decline of the Roman Empire. So it was in a way a little bit similar situation to our cultural situation today. Everything was declining Roman Empire was falling apart, moral standards were disappearing and as I said Benedict was not edified by what he found in Rome in the city. And escaped. First, to his cave in subiaco, where he stayed for three years, we could call it his novitiate, his formation as a monk, this is where he learned to be a monk just for himself first. And then after that he founded monasteries, first of all, 12 monasteries around to Bianco, but then he had to leave this place because of a priest who was not in favor of this crazy monks and finally he moved to Monte cassino, which is a wonderful place, I would say 80 miles south of Rome, about this distance. And placed his monastery on the top of the mountain. And by doing this, he wanted to show to the world the church to everybody. This is what God wants us to do to create a new Jerusalem as the fully scripture says to create a holy city, a sacred space, a sacred community, and we can imagine this monastery as a community with various different people. It even people with different backgrounds. So we know there were Romans certainly Italians, but he had also in his committee gothic people growths and actually those different cultures didn't like one another at that time. So he succeeded in having different culture where people from different cultures and tribes within his one community. That it was that was something at that time. So he had this vision of a new civilization, a vision of a community that lives according to the gospel. According to what St. Paul teaches us whether slave or free, we are all one in Christ, we are all one in Christ, so even if we are different in our personalities and our cultural background in our races, Christ is the one who unites us. And because he gathered different people from different backgrounds in his community, that kept this community alive. And this prevented them to have this what I call provincialism worldview. Only us only we only our tribe only our race, we are the ones. No, there are others too. And this is a challenge, actually. In the United States, often in our history, referred to the term isolationism. That is the mindset that we are separated from a lot of the world, because of two oceans. And then even within the borders of within our country from the upper part of North America to the area south, and there's a danger in that because we can become very ethnocentric we have an experience in what the rest of the world and some very real ways has experienced. I would put it rather in a positive way, this country is so blessed you have everything you have to see the ocean you have the mountains, you have the fields you have the forests you have all the resources in this one country. So you don't have to leave this country and you have the whole world. I think that's a wonderful gift and this is probably the reason why this country is called Gaza own country. So that is wonderful. But as you said, it also has the flip side that one loses the sense of the other worlds and other continents too and they are also interesting and can give us something. But the monastery of Benedict monastery or trappist monastery is disturbing monastery all these monastic communities can have the very similar temptation because you find everything within the within the walls. This is how it is set up. This is what I want to do wants to be, as I said, the monks shouldn't be roam around. So you think it is just us. In this isolation is dangerous. Not only for how you live together with others, but also for but also spiritually. Let me read out some verses from chapter two of the rule of saint Benedict on the qualities of the abbot. The abbot should avoid all favoritism in the monastery. He is not to laugh one more than another, unless he finds someone better in good actions and obedience..

"This is awesome. So all the best of Sam have fun in Israel and thank you for joining me on the podcast. Thank you very much. I hope to see you at the next Trump event. Look forward to it. Yesterday I was, well, I finished a little abruptly as I was talking about Benedict Benedict is the founder of the well, really kind of the father of western monasticism. And he was the head of an Abbey called Monte casino. And he is the famous author of the Benedictine rule, kind of a regimen, a daily routine of prayer and work. And education. So for Benedict, it was very important that the daily routine, not just involve periodic prayer, but that the monks had to do had to work. They had to do physical labor. And moreover, they had to do education. It was part of their task, and let's remember that for many centuries, the monasteries were kind of the universities. Of the western world. Now, Dante encounters Benedict up here in the sphere of the so called fixed stars. And let's look at this. Let's look at the text. The sword of here on high cuts not in haste, noise it slow. Except as it appears to those who wait for it in hope or fear. And what this means is that God's justice is appropriate. It's not too fast, it's not too slow. Now it seems too fast. Or it seems too slow. To us, because of our state of mind, we're in hope, we're like waiting for it to happen. Why can't God move faster? Or in fear? We don't want it to happen. God is we want God to move more slowly. I toured my eyes and saw hundreds of little globes of fire. This was Dante seeing these globes of fire glowing in beauty through each other's light. And Benedict now begins to speak to Dante. And before we get to what Benedict says, I want to make the point that it's very interesting that at the end of the purgatorio, Dante encounters a bunch of poets. And these are people, many of them Florentine poets, people like foresee, gennady, and others, and these poets appeal to Dante because Dante is a poet. And so Dante can kind of learn from them and but here in about the identical cantos in paradiso, we have the equivalent of the poets, but it's not poets. It's these contemplatives. And it's worth thinking about what's the difference between a poet and a contemplative. Well, the difference really is that a poet is in society and is writing for society and is an address as poems typically to to my beloved or to my friend or just to the general public. That is the intended audience of the poet. But let's contrast this now with Benedict or Peter Damian or Bernard of clairville, their poets of a kind, because they compose poetry, except in the poetry is, is prayer. And the prayer is not addressed to the beloved or at least not earthly beloved. It's not addressed to society. In a sense, you could almost say this is an audience of one. God. And so the contemplatives have focused their life on God and God is their address and their whole daily routine is organized in that way. Now interestingly, although we think of these monks as in a monastery, cloistered removed from society, having nothing to do with the outer world, the outer world is the realm of sin, this is not the approach that we see from Benedict. Here's Benedict talking to Dante. He says, the summit of that mountain on whose slope casino lies was once inhabited by people with perverse and false beliefs. So here's Benedict. He says Monte cassino, he goes, this is not a place with only monks. He goes at my time when I lived. Most of Italy was not Christian. It was pagan. And so our job wasn't just to be cloistered in the monastery, we had to be in effect missionaries. Let's keep going. I was the first to carry to them the name of him who brought down to the earth that truth, which gives mankind the strength to rise. Notice the Dante in paradox. I brought down to earth the truth that makes mankind rise and grace on down on me that I reclaimed all the surrounding towns. So what Benedict, I'm sorry, what Benedict is saying is that we had an active role in the surrounding society, a missionary function of bringing people to Christ, so ours wasn't just in that sense the contemplative life,.

"The military isn't for everyone. The United States Marine Corps even says so much in their recruiting slogan. They are the few, the proud. But war changes people. The danger, that sense that one's life could end in a split second, brings something out in a soldier. In April of 1942, a number of Polish soldiers had just been released from Soviet prison camps. They were traveling through Iran on their way to Alexandria, Egypt, where they would board ships back to Europe to assist the allies. It was during this journey when they met a young Iranian boy and his friend. The soldiers would have passed them by, but one of the civilians traveling with them saw something special in the boy's friend. She thought it best to bring him along, asking one of the lieutenants to help her secure passage for him. No one knew his name, though, and it appeared as though his mother had been killed, so the troops named him wojtek, meaning joyous soldier, or happy warrior. But wojtek wouldn't eat at first, probably from the stress of losing his mom and now joining up with a bunch of strangers, but they managed to get him to drink condensed milk from an old vodka bottle. Over time, they spoiled him, treating him like one of their own children. Perhaps out of a deep seated longing for the children they had or lost back home. It didn't take long, however, for wojtek to become one of the guys, when offered a cigarette, he would take a drag. They also gave him beer, and he would drink at all, and then stare down at the opening of the bottle looking for more. The soldiers didn't only feed him garbage, though. He ate fruits, honey, marmalade, and syrups as well. And in the morning they'd give him coffee, which he very much enjoyed. At night he would snuggle up with the soldiers to keep warm, and during the day they'd play in wrestle together to pass the time. Wojtek quickly assimilated to military life and wanted to do everything his older friends were doing. As he grew, he would stand tall and salute them. He even learned how to turn on the communal showers, although that got him in trouble because they were rationing water at the time. After reaching Egypt, the men traveled to Italy to fight alongside the British. There was just one problem, though, wojtek wasn't allowed to go with them, as he wasn't a soldier. Unwilling to let him go, they drafted him into the Polish army where he became an official member of the 22nd artillery supply company. Private wojtek had his own serial number and rank, as well as a pay book in which he could document his rate of pay, and other important details during his time in the military. And he quickly approved himself to be an essential asset to the war, demonstrating his utility at the battle of Monte cassino in 1944. He was only a few years old, but he had ballooned to a whopping 200 pounds. At his size he was able to carry crates of artillery shells weighing a hundred pounds each. In fact, he was so strong, he could lift ammo boxes that normally required three or four men to handle, moving them with ease to wherever they needed to go. And his service during Monte cassino helped him achieve the rank of Corporal. He was a hero to his fellow soldiers and everyone back in Poland. So much so that the 22nd artillery support company changed their insignia to an image of wojtek, carrying an ammo shell. Sadly, he passed away in 1963, but he was honored with statues all over Poland, as well as in Scotland where he was stationed briefly. But if you visit the statue's expecting to see the metal effigy of a large war ravaged child, you'd be mistaken. Wojtek wasn't a person, you see? He was a bear.

mansions that were bought with the ill gotten gains of the corrupt Biden families organized crime ring You know the money coming out of Ukraine and China and Russia By the millions millions and millions then the entirety of the American news media is fine with that It's extraordinary You know I watched MSDNC this morning Morning joke They have the show called morning joke have you seen it They have this bleach blond guy in the semi inflatable flotation device of a third wife that sits next to him and it's a tragic I think that the first what was that like the first 6 minutes or so we're attacking Donald Trump At least I think the first 6 minutes attacking Donald Trump they really don't like Donald Trump and they have mental disorder I think I'm not a psychiatrist but I recognize a mental disorder when I see one because I've lived in Washington for a long time And the problems are rampant legion It's extraordinary Just amazing amazing stuff And the last I guess I think of his generation former senator late senator Bob Dole World War hero tenth mountain division fighting Hitler's national socialist Workers Party and Italy the battle of Monte cassino had his right arm all blown up by the socialist Workers Party there Being laid to rest I believe today the Washington national cathedral funeral service this morning and then I'm not sure if it is going to Arlington cemetery I should probably know that I'll take a look but godspeed bob Dalton I'd met many times over the course of the last couple decades and I mentioned last week that my best girl and I last saw him down at the World War II memorial Maybe a year ago maybe two years ago now what with the whoo and all that with his wife pushing him in a wheelchair And today you know today is the final shebang So I got you Bob Dole World War II generation Senate leader presidential candidate lost graciously And then that started to become an issue But we'll get into that later on Lots to get to today A great deal to get to today An awful lot of stuff we open there with Joe Biden at the Bob Dole memorial service in the capitol yesterday with senator Dole late senator dolls casket underneath the capitol dome and the center of the rotunda there And there's Joe Biden reading during the Ron burgundy thing and reading to the end of the prompter and a message and he doesn't have any kind of freelances it and stumbles around it And boy oh boy oh boy I told the story once before of the late senators from thurmond Strom Thurmond who lived to be I believe to be a hundred years old Senator Bob Dole 98 years old and Strom Thurmond also landed behind Nazi lines in France on June 5th 1944 the day before the beach invasion at Normandy on a glide plane and crashed into the trees landed in the wrong area not his fault and about in any case he was in the Senate for a very long time until he was not a very young man And I was responsible for covering military affairs at that time for what was then a news organization now at CNN and Capitol Hill hearing senator Thurman was reading cards he had three by 5 index cards that he used to read his talking points that were given to him by his senior staff people Chris simcoe Chris simcoe who was wonderful And she was the daughter of PX Kelly the Marine Corps commandant And Strom Thurmond was reading the curtain He was reading his notes and

parentheses the word over meaning you should turn over the index card and there's more but he read the word over And they are saying it was Washington A lot of crazy things happen and now Joe Biden is in The White House And completely completely nutty Then the message said and a message And I got the so called mainstream news media They don't notice these things because because their shills for the Democrat party overwhelmingly now had it been Donald Trump or a Republican that did that would be big news and his brain dead and I should be removed from office when it's a Democrat it goes unnoticed National file did publish a story on it though Teleprompter failed colon They love their colons Biden says end of message during tribute speech to senator Bob Dole And they noted it there at least but they're about the only ones that noticed And Andrew white wrote to a nice piece on it at capitol road tonda service for the late senator Bob Dole Joe Biden muttered end of message during his tribute speech And he can't be embarrassed if nobody mentions it That's the thing about being a Democrat you know Biden was quoting gold when he said our nation has certainly faced periods of division but at the end of the day we always found ways to come together We can find that unity again And then at the then he said end of message Then the message said and a message The uh you know honestly just don't see Fred Willard See anchorman with Ron burgundy If you don't put it in the teleprompter he can't read it So leave it out that good stuff Not a bright man Also at the event yesterday this is

Father of all things decided to get into the restaurant business. It's a one thing I learned is that I never want to own a restaurant. In fact later my my wife was was asking my father in in my aunt who had co owned The restaurant you know g you guys owned a restaurant what was led like my aunt said in Italian this is the thing that we never talked about Katie. Moore. Because have been such a tough time. But anyways, we we lived in a small town called Vanna Froyo which is near Monte. Cassino which is a famous World War Two site in it's sort of it's sort of inland in between Roman Naples, which is really a perfect position for for exploring Italy? It is wonderful in some not so wonderful stories about. That World War Two battle site. Oh. Oh yes definitely. Superior as a kid growing up in Canada you like to go camping and canoeing, and you also developed a love a love for astronomy and I hear that used to keep NASA scrapbooks that right. Well I still have those scrapbooks as a matter of fact. So as a little kid, probably before I went to school, I got into science fiction I got into Star Trek and my grandparents gave me this book astronomy and so that got me into it. My parents were good enough to buy me a a decent telescope and somewhere along the line I became a member of a junior member of the local amateur astronomy club and used to go every week to hang out with these older kids. And and somewhere along the line in elementary school teacher told us that you could just write to NASA and get all these materials. So I started doing that and this was at the height of the Apollo program, and so I started getting all these mission reports, glossies, and posters, and so my room was just filled with all this stuff. I still have those scrapbooks there somewhere in a in a storage bin somewhere and I dug them out recently when they had the fiftieth anniversary of Apollo Eleven and one. Of the more exciting things that happened recently was that I got to meet Joanne Morgan at age and she was the only female engineer in the lot the firing room at the launch of Apollo, eleven and I. Kind of felt my heart fluttering and I felt like I was eight years old again and I was asking all these questions about Buzz Aldrin Neil. Armstrong and I had to tell myself now calm down and act like you're eight years old but she was utterly charming and decent and and. She must have all kinds of fans because she dealt with me really well.

"I think sometimes we assume. Unfairly that people don't want to see other people succeed I think that because we played politics so much that it it becomes kind of tagline in a for as but one of the things that I get excited about is when I have conversations like the ones I'm having with you walks I don't know what you thought of me before this interview but I, don't think that the things I'm saying are coming off to you very radical or scary. At all at. That's the same thing that happens when we have conversations with Tulsen's in general. Yes. Grew up in North Tulsa but I went to school at Eisenhower National I'm fluent in Spanish I went to Monte Cassino middle school a very affluent community and then I graduated from Booker T. Washington High School, I have been an engaged in have ranson and really family from every corner every socioeconomic. Boundaries within the city, the messages that I'm coming from is a space of. Of How do we improve? Tulsa, for all of us because. I feel as if I have a little bit of every part of Tulsa that. Inside of me and so I think again, what I'm excited about this election is to say that we've just been so used to only sing things one way. We don't have to be threatened by another way of thinking, and so I just want to engage with. Midtown Republicans or conservatives in inside that. Hey. I think actually we are more alike than we are different. Let's engage in a conversation. Let me understand what is important to you are pulses what do you value and then let me give you a perspective of what Tulsen's that may be. You don't experience quite as much as they value and can we come to Collaborative spaces, can we come to agreement on on where we want to go as a city? The last thing I'll say is while while I, have value Y. Have Vision I'm not immovable object right I'm not someone who says the way that I think it needs to go. This is the way it has to go I want us to succeed as a whole and if communities organizations, groups have ideas and best practices on how we can have inclusive growth than I. Woke those to the table. So yeah, I wanNA talk to everybody. And and I think what that does is it Kinda breaks down the barriers that have kept us apart for so long? I think Chris is a better judge of whether what you said seems radical. Than me as someone who is raised by two. Super. Liberal. New York Jews in Broken Arrow. Oklahoma. So. You talked about a series of campaigns that you worked on where you lost. I'm GonNa make an assumption that the Hillary Clinton one was the most depressing of those losses but.

"Okay everyone in the morning refugee camp on Smith's stop it attack. I'm trying to listen right right. So food is running pretty low and has been for the last couple of weeks wondering if anybody has any suggestions as to how we might deal with this. I mean it's pretty obvious. Look at Irena. Do you have any ideas how we might deal with the food problem the Kim I? I'm thinking seriously seriously. Maybe maybe something to do with Vojtech. I got it great signs on so Vojtech and I will hunt berries. That'll bring in some food right. I Hate You. I just WANNA say sad. Bear noise is the funniest thing. You've ever written right so eventually it became obvious how stupid it was to have a pet bear while being a refugee and rain donated him to the Twenty Second Artillery Supply Company. And that's when they named him Vojtech which is the nickname version of voice checks and it means happy warrior. Apparently so some guy in this company showed up at Camp with a bear and everyone just started guessing about what Vojtech should eat drink and they landed on condensed milk from an old vodka bottle. Avocado Fruit Marmalade honey and Syrup and as a reward for behavior. So hyper. That's deal. Sugar there you WANNA Hyper Berry. Relies clear humming bird pair okay. Well that's the most adorable thing I've ever heard of covering right in front of her second man's on your hand and crushes me thing melander wings. Stay the same but yeah. They're giving him condensed milk. Maybe with vodka. Maybe it was like powdered milk mixed with the vodka. It's not clear a whole bunch of sugar stuff also as a reward for good behavior. They gave him beer which became vojtech because the thing that makes a bear so dangerous as the Sobriety Jesus. They barely manage to solve. That problem tech was apparently smarter than the average bear and quickly started learning to be useful when it was cold. He'd sleep with the soldiers at night and be the big spoon warm-up to be clear that wasn't always welcome but sometimes you just have to grin and bear absolutely not absolutely show Tom when they had free. Invention Tech would wrestle with the soldiers for fun and he even learned to salute when greeted by an officer and my favorite part. Apparently vojtech would mimic everything he saw and that included marching on his hind legs. To look like human. That's fucking adorable and also. He would mimic stuff. He started smoking cigarette nights. What's and eating? Them is what I read. Mimicking then lied to me. This doesn't taste like a guy named and so over the next year and a half vojtech traveled along with the soldiers and became fucking enormous like bears often two hundred pounds by the end of nineteen forty-three and eventually grew to almost five hundred pounds. So that brings us to January of nineteen forty four when Vojtech that is first taste of live combat in world war that winter is unit got assigned to fight alongside British forces in Italy but win the British transport ship arrived to pick them up. British officer in charge of it was like no. No no no. You're all stupid. I can't believe I have to say this but no that's not having a make no right now. No giant bear mascots can't believe this but that's a that's when Vojtech got officially enlisted as a private into the Polish army around the war and then the Polish army is throwing mascot paperwork out the train window to all the refugee bears outside. Sorry I couldn't have done more all right. So vojtech enlisted. He's got his own payback on rank. His own serial number a British navy. Captain is fucking furious but to respect the awesome technicality and they took him on the ship avoid texts on the boat going to Italy. Wait we wait so the guy was just like rules are rules. I mean otherwise. I'd have to explain that they've fucking pretended there. Bear was a guy so they they fucking air butted them out of so much soon so they arrived in Italy and the company started fighting in the Battle of Monte Cassino. And this is when private Vojtech the bear. He became a war hero during the battle. You watched his fellow soldiers carrying AMMO and started. Doing the same thing started mimicking that. According to this company the men were teaming up four at a time to carry these really big crates of artillery shells and Vojtech was like all right cool. I get the fuck out of the way with your little baby arms. I started picking up these crates of explosive shells all by himself. The ones that it took four guys to Gary. He's got them all by himself. And he's carrying a on transport vehicles allegedly without dropping a single shell or create admittedly. That's pretty bad as the second people are like see. That's why we need a right to bear arms. See So. Show me your tits. I'm GonNa Motorboat you right now. Casino was a real fucking gamble. I'll tell you that taking Eli. Eli Lama today. What's going to happen to you? Want your kids born. What Your Dad. That's what's happened in a canoe. Your your tits. Tom Knows that was not bad side. Note nothing about Vojtech was mentioned in the wikipedia article for the Battle of Monte Cassino. Because bigotry anyway which was a victory for the Allies. Vojtech was promoted from private to corporal or his heroism. Yeah but I mean you barely notice the promotion and in recognition of his service twenty-second Artillery Company adopted depiction of bear carrying a giant artillery. Shell as their official emblem on their flag. He's statues all over Europe and several mentions in culture. This includes an Easter egg in the video. Game Hearts of iron for that you can earn by playing as Poland. Apparently World War. Two game you earn it by playing Poland having troops fighting in Italy controlling the Iranian province of Hamadan and remaining non-aligned is is what I read and let's attic. It's so I want you to be aligned. I wanted to be clear the alignment there regardless that Easter egg achievement is called bearer of artillery. Throw this weird place for such thing. I'm just I'm picturing the story. Polish recruit asking some senior officer about the emblem. You know does that. Bear represent the way our nation emerged from hibernation to defeat our enemies. Does the crate represent a great historical burden? Use Our nation's tragic story now bear carry box. One Hustle is something that happened to single time that they were. We're GONNA switch to bear. Bear eating cigarette right. After the war ended. The company was stationed in Scotland where vojtech quickly became a local icon. Then in one thousand nine forty seven. He was given to the Edinburgh Zoo. And during the years following the war Polish soldiers would visit him and toss him cigarettes bullish thing. You wouldn't understand also spent the rest of his life at the zoo happily eating tobacco and eventually passing away in one thousand nine hundred sixty three the age of twenty one hero who helped kill Italy on the Nazi team.

Well they have of God. I'm thinking of the little family that runs the gift shop. That is just you know a in in the. It's not even really a Piazza area. What would you call it? I mean it's just a little across from the monastery. Do you have access to them. Do they have a? Can they intermingle with you or are they? I'm having to be separated. Actually they left to their home. They live close to Monte Cassino. This they have the home But it's a good question because we be discussed among ourselves what we do with our co workers in over their families and so we all have them to stay home And some choose to do this because they felt more safe to be again as what group is learning and others. I'm so as we said you know we we stick to to your lungs especially cooks The personnel daykitchen. They are awesome. They still come every day. You know the streets are empty. Nobody since we Since the day the the police blocks off boats you have no chance anymore to to Goto only those with special authorization So those who still come to us. They are so generous. You see a lot of generous people at the moment. Think about the doctors. The nurses the help us the police It's how many people head together and I'm I really knew you've you'll on on the Italian folks. They still people they stick together. They are inserted dairy team. They I used how they how they fight together. Yeah at I was thinking about this recently. That the experience that we're having in the United States which you were supposed to visit you were supposed to be here. Yeah I know I was also to see this weekend and In the United States. I don't think we've ever experienced anything quite like this. We had you know the only thing I yes. We had the influence of of nineteen eighteen. But that wasn't it it devastated populace but people didn't know what was causing it. They didn't know it. We had just lifts right here. It's not just the virus but it's also the economic situation and it may be the civil war might have been close years ago But again that was very regional. And so we're just There is a such a concern in anxiety and stress because this is so new but as you mentioned the people of Europe your people in Germany the people of Italy people of Rome. This type of devastating occurrence occurred during times of war. And you know we're out of nowhere a bomb will drop into your community and It in it would last for years. So there's there's something to that. Isn't there The European ability to be able to endure such calamity. They my my overstating that at.

"Consider yourself when it comes to academia as as some of rebel in the current climate. Yes I think. The of course a rebellion implies a conscious act. This is is simply won't I am under a roughnecks assessment? Hannity where one's mind is a kind of junk shop where you just gather all kinds of material from all kinds of sources and see the interconnections and for meeting could interconnection is the idea of persuasion persuasion asset coal dynamic of human history and for example. One of the things I when I entered King's college which is in the wall. Studies Department is tell them they look. Scott's. The war is a branch of the advertising industry. But I then pull out a book. It's a picture book which was published by the son of a British officer and eaten consistent. Tawny of the debris he connected on the battlefield on a single day of the battle of Monte Cassino. Are All the literature. The Germans fired from water before arm is a Polish American British and Indian which were besieging Monte Cassino. With a different message to each group in order subvert this armies and I it's effective stuff it. It really is impressive. But you're talking here about psychological artillery now. Really that sums up the Nazis state that it was the only regime in history to live kate the idea of persuasion the Corbett's which was the source. Radio of its enormous success later. Downfall I mean if you consider the battle of Stalingrad which was the turning point of world will too late forty two hundred forty three walls chosen because of the resonances of the name to fight the great decisive battle. Hitler would destroy. Starting Grad. Big Concept was named after started and he'd fight the decisive linchpin battle of World War Two. It didn't turn out that way but it was because he was directed by Persuasion propaganda considerations throughout a funneling for example all that energy and money into the Tara weapons the fee on the beach to the three which had no military value at all. Lighten Balm or a rocket couldn't be targeted So the toll later said he ties and British civilians were killed by them in the last year of World War Two thirty. They had no military value at all and yet on the date scientist. Freeman dyson county related. But you could have built fifteen fighter planes to defend Germany for the price of one B. Two that's an example of of what became really a kind of insanity it'll also really sold on the idea of persuasion to a degree almost unbelievable losing todd. Division of the German Army Them Act in Tondo devoted to propaganda cameramen journalists still making some so forth. We in a way off the fact that certain fact but consider it in another way. The imagery we derive of World War. Two screens is basically imagery created by the Nazis. So we see an idealized picture of the Nazi. The quality of this Campbell Web is absolutely superb. I describe it in one of my books as like a var in the tomb of long extinct Pharaoh from fair coming back on. This is the frightening thing but you did have really this from the token or any other break dictator of history. But unfortunately the Nazis produce such Brennan Edited Perspective and imagery of themselves that. He didn't Chauncey people who don't remember and to either selectively perceive or. Choose TO FORGET. So the footage. Sorry to cut you off but this footage that they were so focused on collecting. This is I mean. This is the footage that we see. Now these are the won't you see? It's what you see you the Nazis stuff for example. If you watch a documentary on Hitter I being interviewed in many Walter. Generally do is Unit bearing in mind limited budgets UNCIVIL. They'll just take offcuts from the film. Trump of the will the great recording all the Nuremberg Randy and this wolves the nineteen thirty four granny. And of course it's Russian false stuff. It's absolutely brilliant And Terribly Chitty. But it's propaganda. It's not how they actually look tune if you want to see they actually looked you look at their television. You look at their television. Because from the Mid Thirties they had ted visual there any in public places and they filmed it all on videotape on A. This is all discovered in east Germany after the collapse of the verdict. And it's not edited stuff. So we see them as they really were. Which are boorish middle aged men with huge BIP flapping Abbad units not like so? Does that lend itself then? This idea of like marketing war. Does that lend itself to what we saw happening in in Syria and Iraq with Isis where they projected this freedom fighting utopia full will Is Is I think has a number of components I think firstly we must never forget the key distinction between them and al Qaeda that Isis State Al Qaeda or any of a roving band all rebels but isis statehood by six million people who the size of the British isles while they try in. That propaganda is to project the idea of statehood so most of the stuff they turned out walls actually staff on Pharma's Rights on consumer protection. It's not what we imagine equipment that was the vast bulk of the stuff The other stuff. The magazine like the online magazine. That beak the other stuff yes. They did have a highly sophisticated camera teams and so forth and they made move is. They made short move. There's about thirty minutes and these move is extra ordinary because I was asked by seven American Agency to do a report on mirroring the impact of terrorists messaging with a colleague. I found you go online and watch these movies. Otherwise no sense of going on the dark web or anything and They would record for example lemass drones a drone attacks which were extremely effective weapon. I you spoke to this as men who who didn't drug them on things like that. They had no evidence. Of course that that key there Kita tation actually bought they try and represent themselves as putting Areo combat into a new era by having great fleets of drones which would do the attacking a kind of Amanda falls so they were like this but essentially the way operated was spy an open source approach where the walls notorious control at all that is to say anyone anywhere in the world with the laptop. Good become a nicest propagandist non twitter all these days. Anyone could contribute a newest taking a risk but at the same time it created this soon. Nami of imagery of rhetoric and so forth which new wisden agency could turn awful done becomes soon Nami. Because essentially they were operating open source approach enabling people from all over the world to joined the colts rhetorically and images sticky. So it was very difficult to combat something like this because it was a Wacko in other words. You Don one of the twitter accounts and other Dow's Mu Will Spring up on so forth so they represented actually a unique Kind of challenge. They were I think. The the mystery is why they're central weakness was that off fascination with the therapy and really not understanding the psychology of in other words fair. Welcome thank typically and for a long time but eventually all adversaries will lose their fifth for example Sparta walls of Proto Fascist state built on there. But eventually the spartans were overthrown by the heads of the people they repressed and history never tells you the same hair in other words. The Battle of Missouri now should be regarded as one of the most extraordinary battles of human history said in his significance of the modern. And the three hundred spartans. This what you had here is thirty thousand Iraqi soldiers and about six hundred Isis surgeons and the six hundred Isis. Sodas SENT LOW THIRTY THOUSAND. Iraqi soldiers packing absolutely routed them And I can't think of any barely in history to that. Why because all the mobilization of the fear factor so for a time? It worked incredibly. Well I need even the SAS with terrified vices. I think the counter arguments is an Having been very close to people on the ground over the counter argument to that is well Six hundred of might didn't send them packing Puglia out of feel but it was because of perhaps this open source concept that made senior members of the of of this of this force so of switch allegiance and switching allegiance. Yeah that created you know like the speaker incident where two thousand to two thousand Iraqis killed so the thing that I want to touch on here is the using feel in in wall marketing has that been played is there is there an alternative will tear is always going to be your. Mr Painted tool and a tool of great pas about. It's not the exclusive for example. If you look at the British World War Two thousand started about the blitz. Autumns there is. The blitz is presented as a phenomenal nature. It's presented as like a tornado or something like that and there is no actual bution of hatred to the Germans. There's no use of the fifth and it's dropped something which has happened which we have to combat which we have to put out and so there is not the exclusive resort but it is probably the major one along with atrocity propaganda along with Hora along with the Utopian propaganda of a better word will order and so Has Great uses as an initial trigger? But it's not something which me continuously replenish because people do lose it because eventually people lose their therapy death live here of death is something which writing points dominates all of us but that becomes a psychological moment where it ceases to torment us. And that's the point win. The resistance can really begin So the resistance is at the intersection between the fair dissipating in an acceptance exactly anxiety in other words fear is a natural human emotion which is pretty universal even in the right for example Kempton Narin who trained wing commander Guy Gibson for the DAM BUSTERS RATE. Told me that gibbs who is one of the greatest military heroes in Britain in history told him that he felt absolute Tara from the moment of getting into an aircraft to the moment he got out of it. You don't get that in the movies but that that is the truth in other words and all of these great heroes at some point Philip. You'd fifth for example two weeks ago. I descend to nine thousand nine describe The war of Germany the bombing and how. He had a very mosquito. Achraf which the Jones couldn't catch he described this overburden. And so forth getting through flanking central in very gung-ho terms. He's one of these people who are like that then. He described an incident where little white light came on his aircraft. Which had never happened before. Which told you that something was on your tail because the mosquito flew faster than any German aircraft Coming on this time it did. And he realized it was a Nazi jet fighter. Namie to six to a witch. A that quote him on his navigator in Absolute Tara becomes the mosquitoes on it was made of wood. It had no mama and the emmy to six to head cannons and was on his tail and He knew that this could well be the end. The the only thing which could save him with talking about eight years ago walls if he could Survive in the next twenty five minutes. 'cause the me too Had Very Limited Fuel results for five minutes. His earlier is also studio acrobatics. To hell the plane on the ground and so forth trond looted which is what he did and he still living today at nine thousand nine would i. It was very interesting but in this kind of Gung Ho Narrative this braggadocio sudden amendment. Where his mood changes? He Recall Appeal. Tara of eighty s before when he had a jet fighter on his tail. And so he's that way. A propaganda comes in in in our very much. So because you know that everyone feels fair fair can be neutralized by other emotions like anger but he is very very powerful thing because it relates to our survival fight or flight. That's fascinating and so. If you were to link that know too suppose let let's say advertising or marketing. How how can all the case studies all the examples? Where fit is used effectively. Oh Yes yes I mean. Very typically what you do. Is You prescribe a problem. And you deliver a branded antidote. So marketing has always you look at the advertising in in the fifties us. Defector your suffering. Your medical suffering. Your problems could go right back to the nineteenth century and the craft doctors quack medicines..
