"To some important degree. When I summarized your thesis, why did you say that while that's true, that's not the thesis because I understand the thesis is regarding the isolation of groups from one another, which is unprecedented. And obviously, it's what I want to talk about. But what I summarized is fair as well, correct? Yeah. That it's a values question more than an economics question. Yes, and this has been a Dennis one of the most interesting things in the year since the book has come out. The reaction. I deliberately wrote the book so that people on the left could read it, which is to say, I did not go through the arguments and losing ground. Another book of mine, which says the 60s have a lot to answer for in producing these problems. Because I knew if I did that, I would lose my thoughts on the left. And I wanted to talk about the problem. So I got a lot of very gratifying agreement that I was talking about a real problem. But the reflexive glib answer was, oh, but this is because of globalization, because of the loss of manufacturing jobs. Exactly. Working class wages. It was just, it was like, so let me ask you, I'm very happy, I love your honesty, and I love so much about what you write and do. But in this regard, did you ever think to yourself afterwards may be it wasn't worth trying to not alienate the left? No, actually, Dennis, I went the other way. And I will tell you the moment I said it worked. And that was Nicholas kristof, the New York Times columnist. Rhoda column, a few weeks after the book came out. Saying essentially well Murray politics or nuts, but he's talking about a real problem. And I had and he would have never written that if I'd done either of two things. First, if I talked about the causes, he would have never even read the book. And secondly, if I hadn't limited it to white America, he wouldn't have felt nearly. So it would have been racism that caused the issue. Exactly. So those are steps. Open up the dialog. Okay, so let me ask you as one who just devoted ten years to a book that came out last year. And I did name the source. The leftism, as I call it, which I believe is, as I often say to my listeners and I write in my book, I think is the most dynamic religion of the last hundred years, dwarfing. I mean, it's sincerely. No, I was laughing because at home when you said it that way. Yeah, no, it's a way to look at it that's important. So I debated it and then I realized, but that Nicholas crystal, to me, it's like and I don't want to go on because I want you to do most of the talking by far. But this is so important to me because your work is so important to me. That Nicholas Christoph says, along with you, ah, you know what, the patient really is suffering from the following symptoms, but Murray and I have entirely different views as to why the patient got this disease..

"A Martinez and Culver City California And I'm Leila folden in Washington D.C. In Florida a new abortion ban Bill is a step closer to becoming law The state House passed a bill banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy similar measures were also passed this week by West Virginia's house and Arizona's Senate The bills were all inspired by a Mississippi abortion law that is now being considered by the Supreme Court a case many believe may overturn roe V wade And Pierre's Greg Allen has been following the debate in Florida and joins us now good morning Greg Good morning Leila So if this becomes law and it sounds like that's very likely how would it change access to abortion in Florida Well it would prohibit all abortions after 15 weeks with network exceptions for fetal abnormalities and to protect the life of the mother The current law in Florida allows abortions until 24 weeks And that's the point that's generally considered to be viability for the fetus Like the Mississippi law Florida's ban after 15 weeks doesn't include exceptions for rape or incest the bill sponsors can see that this law does run counter to roe V wade which currently allows abortions in the first and second trimesters And in Florida courts have said the right to an abortion is also protected by the state constitution but opponents to abortion say that's changing and here's one of the sponsors Republican representative Aaron grew The courts have just gotten it wrong And there is enough scientific evidence in my opinion and the opinion of many that would provide the court a basis to reconsider the decisions that they have made with regard to this issue in the past Supporters say by passing this bill Florida will be ready when the Supreme Court overturns roe Okay so what would the real-life impact be if this becomes law Well we heard statistics in the debate according to the state about three and a half percent of abortions in Florida happened after 15 weeks But that's thousands of women each year Doctor Samantha deans and associate medical director with Planned Parenthood in Florida so some women don't even realize they're pregnant until after 15 weeks Another problem she says is that most fetal anomalies aren't detected by then You can not perform an amniocentesis until the second trimester And generally speaking we don't perform amniocentesis until 16 to 20 weeks That's just a medical fact Under the Florida Bill if an abnormality is discovered in the fetus after 15 weeks the pregnancy can't be terminated unless two doctors certify the baby will die shortly after birth Such a sensitive issue and one that people are really passionate about how did that play out in the debate Well we heard personal stories from several lawmakers during the debate last night one was from Republican Dana who voted for the bill she told colleagues she had an abortion when she was younger and now his anguished about it But mostly I'm ashamed because I will never get to know the unborn child that I could have had Another lawmaker Democrat Robin bartleman talked about the agonizing time she and her husband had when they discovered well after 15 weeks a severe abnormality in the baby that she was carrying She talked about what this bill will do for families who are in a similar situation So when you get that terrible heartbreaking news you don't even have a decision Because the state of Florida has already taken away from you The bill passed Florida's house last night on a largely party line vote It now moved to Florida Senate where it's also expected to pass and likely be signed by Florida's governor If it does go into the fact that that lot depends now on the courts it will affect not just women in Florida but also those from the Caribbean and states throughout the southeast people who travel here for abortions NPR's Greg Allen thank you Greg You're welcome.

"Big turnaround for only fans we are we sex positive now. This is just. The weirdest story may remember only fans. Which really i started As a platform for sex workers to sell direct to their customers Not sexual expert videos. Pictures that kind of thing Then because of pressure up turns out from the credit card companies and rules changes that were imminent announced last week. No more porn. You can put new tasteful nudes up but no more explicit content I mean there was a hue and a cry. I think somewhat legitimately. I'm i'm not. I don't have an only fan subscription but i think some legitimately from sex workers. I don't think sex work should be illegal. I think in many places. It's not from sex workers who said look. This was a safe way for us to make a living and all of a sudden. We're cut off. All of our kate and not not in the in the hands of certain bad actors appear chair. Stay with same with the campaign. Exit went after other platforms. It's shoved it back underground. I don't content's not going away. And it's not illegal by the way in in most jurisdictions But there's still a very big stigma against it and so listen to your is one of the best writers on this book album. She's she's really taught me about this. That air is an important provider. A rights yeah. And i saw this tweet safely on our air say role. Bleep it if it's probably when they when they took it down. Somebody said that they that they thought that The founder of of of only fans must have taken it down in a moment of guilt after a moment of rapture. Shall we say one fiasco and that's the puritanical point. You isn't it that oh my goodness i'm enjoying this. This must stop The credit card companies. I think i understand this. Don't want to be liable. They did this already. To porn hub because porn hub was Accused of in a very famous. Think talk about opinion pieces very famous opinion piece by nicholas kristof in the new york times Pretty much ended porn hub. Because he said there's revenge porn on their there's nonconsensual stuff on there Credit card companies. Immediately come off and that was that And then it's now kind of i guess what they're gonna do Somehow i'm not sure how only fans figured out how to get around that. I don't know the You know i. i think. The credit card aren't changing their tunes. So i don't know what they're going to be bitcoin that credit card companies. I mean people use credit cards to buy porn all the time. Yeah but when yeah. I yeah i don't know i wouldn't order to about that stacy but i know that's that's a legitimate question. I is it our credit card companies going to decide You know they're going to new laws right. I you know last week. I think we're talking about the postal service. And and how comstock that was the pressure point at which you could bring by the puritans against sex. Nothing's that we're seeing as bad and and the credit card companies are just a a pressure point so the parents television council people like that can go after them and they make nervous about their business. So it's a much who's gonna stand up in favor reporting and a major banking company. They're gonna say okay. Okay okay. we'll we'll but there are. I have to say plenty of sites out there. Scooter has an explanation. He does he says banks now have to ensure that sellers have documented. Consent is age and identity verification. So i think that's a requirement for biographies. Your yeah yeah yeah legitimately. You don't wanna underage performers. Maybe that's the problem on Maybe maybe maybe only fans has decided they don't i can do this have policies in place to document people but they're probably not as i don't know study that said that You that thirteen year olds in under no easily to get around pretty much every restriction on all the platforms k. Has is gonna is going to require Identification for the purposes of age which which has horrible chilean and they over but initially they way you would get this verification by going to your local pub. That's showing up with. Id step your card They because they needed local places. People can go to verify their d. I don't know. I think that did not make it into the final law. Well on c. h. verification law in two thousand eighteen they would introduce a new laws. I wonder what happened to. I think it's plan for online pornography age coburn nineteen. Yeah yeah anyway. I mean. I don't really have a opinion. One way or the other as i said i don't have any only fans accounts i think sp platforms like patriot. I think patriot also might have some adult content on it platforms. Like patriots are fantastic. It's what we use for a club to use their member full service. I think they're fantastic for for people who create context to go directly to their audience. There's no reason why people create adult content should somehow be eliminated from that group of people. Arbitrarily i agree. There should be ways to verify consent and verify age. That's obviously something has to happen. Maybe tumbler got kicked in the groin so to speak when because of its corporate owner is it took down to simply nudity and tumbler had a lot of artistic expression that use that and then suddenly there was a fear about was there was was a chill on the naked skin. There is too bad. I mean i think it'd be nice if society just kind of accepted that sexuality nudity is part of life and not something to be since we we celebrate violence in all its forms of fashion. I think the. I mean if the issue is stopping kids from that's fine. I agree that it should not be that. They've got to prevent that. If that's an issue. But i don't think i don't. Maybe it's a big issue. I don't know. I think most of the people i've only fans are adults who have decided most but if there are some case getting on there and doing that that is it's my hope that that's exactly what only fans did is is come up with a ska system to prevent that. Is there other. There is stuff besides porn on only. I've never really. I've never gone on early in fact earlier. This fans known for ya. They they they kind of started to really and there are some big celebrities on only fan. Only fans I don't know what they offer. Probably you know other stuff but Yeah so anyway. The biggest turnaround in history. Hey we're talking we. Before we end the journalism topic we should probably mention the passing of The guy who put the new york times on the internet Richard richard maislin. He was a times editor Has passed away at the age of sixty eight. Which is can tell you right now. Far too young He was it says according to the times instrumental in the newspapers.

Both sides behave badly and it did start to some degree with the mutiny in tigray by but when we have a government that is allied with us that uses modern military equipment to To mow down civilians not justified other combatants to engage in a campaign of mass rape and then tried to starve large region into submission and then bring in the iranian forces from next door to add to that. Ben you know that is not an appropriate response. Is war crimes. It i think it reeks of genocide And there's simply no excuse for what the government is doing right now. And what can we expect while this election is going on any reduction in the government's Action against The the insurgents to prime minister keeps promising that the era trian forces will leave then that the conflict is almost over but there is no real sign of that.

"For the conclusion of my conversation with nicholas kristof. So this isn't it doesn't sound like it's a ripple effect from one person. It sounds like it has to do with all of the nodes. All of the people being nodes and radiate kind of radiating. I don't think that's the right term but like in all directions in their. Yes that's right. That's exactly right and everyone is doing is everyone is acting this way within the network and this is of course why some people are more. Structurally influential than others. So for example one intuitive understanding of this is you know is you're bioterrorist and you had to infect one person in san francisco the germ who would you in fact exacts some monk. That's by him. Sells you know often some monastery because that person is not in one else. You have the enjoyed understanding where some people are going to be. Spread germs more. And that. that's the person you really want to get a going. So the capacity to reduce rebels varies from person to person. How conscious this process right. So am i sort of out loud. Thinking am overweight. it's just the way guys are these days. It's not a big deal or is it very unconscious imitation. Proliferation of unhealthy habits and diets and exercise patterns and acceptable body size. But it never quite leaps into my consciousness. It just happens the should be both so one of the things that's happened is if you look at those old photographs oh young. Men listing on the second world war. They all look like how you guys fright. But it looked at the analogous recruits today would be you know much bigger and what happens is that there's a kind of spread in norms about acceptable body size. So you're surrounded by other people who get bigger and bigger and of changes your expectations. About what a normal body sizes and then used her gain weight and pass it on to the next person we've been able in some work. We don't provide evidence for these normative in other words. It's not just the angel. It's not just your friends. say you know. Let's up beer and you're like no. That sounds like a yucky combination. But no my friend is suggesting beers length. Let's do that. And of course you adopt the muffins at bir diet and gateway yes that does happen but it's not just that it's that there's a spread of norms as well not just the spread of the. You're so by seeing your friends lor wait. Let's say you change your ideas about what an acceptable body sizes. Then you can gain weight or here's the tricky part. You can even be an ace of domestic carrier just like for example i could be infected with germ have symptoms. Give it to you. You have the charm but you don't have symptoms and then transmit it to your wife. Coup gets the germ and symptoms so you function as an ace of dramatic carrier just like case corona virus. The virus could spread some are of dramatic while the same happened with norms for example like obesity cer- example. I have the norm. I adopted norm. But it's okay bigger. I've gained weight. You see me that has gained waves. You don't gain weight but now your ideas about what an acceptable body size are have changed. Were exposure to me now. You encounter a new friend of yours. Who has started to gain weight. And if you're having to directing you might have set it up fred. let's jim you might have kind of given them a correction but now having seen me your we'll actually does battiston stock. You so i'm not gonna say anything you see you then have become a nascent dramatic carrier of nor even though it has not affected nor body size for example right so i'm sitting there going well. I'm just abnormally fit and trim everyone else. I'm not gonna right compared to my. I'm not gonna i'm not gonna their lifestyle to impose my norms of working out all the time and watching what i eat. That's that's ridiculous. Can we use these powers for good because that seems very useful. Like imagining. Imagining companies organizing. So that they're using the influential people to improve the health and fitness and work habits of others. And also i wanna know how to increase my own influence so that i have a positive effect on others. Like how do i get my virtues to spread versus being upon. Well i mean the answer. That question is yes and my live has been doing for over ten years now many experiments showing how you ten foster desirable cascades of gamers as will earlier i alluded to developing world. Settings were we shall. Chris can foster the spread of anti diarrheal practices to reduce diarrhea in bellevue world. Villages and di. Rita is a leading killer of young kids. In must've been melvin world or we have a big trial just finished me support from the bill and melinda gates foundation in honduras where we've been able to show that we can improve charles child. Health behaviors in thousands of people by fostering signs of behavioral cascades and many other experiments were done online with also working companies for example of companies. That are trying to increase or decrease the prescribing behavior of physicians. You'll get doctors to change. What medications they prescribe nations or what tests they order. You wanna reduce needless test ordering by physicians. We wanna foster diffusion of innovation through networks of doctors of these desirable prescribing who test ordering practices. We have done many many applications like this and so many commercial firms. of course. we're we're interested including the health of the public. They want associates. But you know our our technology can be used as always as well incidentally also be used for ill like any technology you know you can invent a gun for hunting and then you can use it to murder people and you know. It's a dual use technology. Our technology and the idea is at my lab. Many other similar labs advance can be used for good or for l. Frankly you know that is something. We our minds love. It certainly also discussed the various things. We social networks can seemingly spread good ideas bad ideas political ideas smoking right back. Pain suicide clusters or something. You mentioned in the pain thing was interesting though to tell us about that. That was kind of out of. I didn't see that one coming. You know well. I mean the thing is there. Are these diseases which are called. Culture bound syndromes which are are diseases which are very typical of a particular cultural group in which far as we can tell have no physiologic basis. Now when we look at other cultural groups we can thank. Those people are nuts. For example there's this illness in certain countries in asia. Where a man becomes convinced that his penis is disappearing and it's been drawn up into his body and there's no physiologic basis for this belief and a penis has not in fact but the the treatment for this condition is to have a trusted family member. Hold the pena's twenty four hours a day to make sure that it doesn't doesn't receive psychological kind of belief system and you can have outbreaks of this condition like epidemics of this condition. Right now. we look at that. We think because they never heard of duct tape over there. We look at that. We think that's nuts. But they might look at us and think that's nuts for example we have epidemics of anorexia in our country and this is seen in very distinctive subgroups in our population often us sort of upper middle class white girls particularly afflicted by this condition. It's not of course restricted to that group but you rarely see in very poor countries. Where food is scarce. And it's a bit of an odd kind of condition so from an outsider's perspective. That might look to them. It looks like the penis disappearance story for example and back pain which typically afflicts of middle men and often. there's no physiologic basis that. We can ascertain for this condition also might be in this category where it is a kind of social contagion and there was a very interesting sort of study that was done. I think that is what you are alluding to what got us onto. This santon is that in east and west germany after the reunification of germany. I can't remember right now. Which side has the lower incidence of back pain. I think eastern was east. Germany at low had very low levels of back pain in middle aged men and west. Germans had high levels very similar population of human beings and then after the reunifications suddenly east german back named levels into approximate west german levels. Right by the authors speculated process of social contagion and the change in norms about back pain..

"Voice against Nicholas Kristof when he came on for the New York Times and defending Israel and explaining and understanding The conflict between Israel and Hamas United a whole special podcast on that last month, and I do hope you'll go listen to by the way, Christie call dot com But Uh, no. Do I think Bill Maher's politics have changed? I don't But there's something about the guy. I guess you want to call them classical liberal or whatever. He respects and understands how important it is. Um, that you're not exaggerate, and that you not become so town so totalitarian that you go after speech because he realizes his days will be number two. He's already experienced that early in his career. He was one of the first comics. To be cancelled. If you remember back when ABC actually tried to do a show called politically incorrect. That was actual thing, like I don't remember was 20 years ago on ABC, So Bill Maher knows what it is when the crowd comes for you and your speech. And while he doesn't agree with anything people like me say, I do think on balance. He believes we should be allowed to exist and talk about it here to talk more about it as a guy who thinks deeply about a lot of this stuff because he writes about all things entertainment. At Hollywood and Toto, It's Christian, Toto and Christian. It's good to have you on this Monday morning high Hi. Thanks for having me. So, you know, I know we've talked a lot about Bill Maher In the past, I just I'd start by asking you a is he sort of the canary in the coal mine of entertainment. Is he one of the last left? He really is a fascinating figure in 2021. I mean what he's saying. It is like a I guess you could say a genuine liberal from maybe 1994 got in time machine looked at the current Democratic landscape and said, Oh, my goodness. Have to stop this and what he's doing is, you know, I think you mention the word pragmatic. If you was extraordinarily pragmatic to me, he's seeing the crazy and and saying to his colleagues stop. You must stop. He's going to hurt us. And I think the only reason it hasn't hurt the Democrats aggressively up until now. The corruption of the media. Um so and I think I think needed. Tamar realizes that the media corruption can only hold back the truth and reality so long and that at some point, uh there'll be a consequence. That's I mean, I don't know what other way to think about what Bill Morris saying because week after week, teachers shocks you with what he says. And again. He's not saying, you know, Vote for Trump in 2024. Don't be saying What we're doing is illogical, uh, is unhinged. And we must stop. He's right. You know, It's like it's week after week, you know, he talked about Hamas attacking Israel and what Israel supposed to do a couple weeks before that, he said, You know, um De Santis. I've read Ken read. You know it was a great line, and he said, You know, it seems two sentences winning the the Pandemic War. You know, let the sun and the wind do each thing And maybe Cuomo was wrong and you know, he comes out and a sales the woke ism last weekend, and there was another, and I mean it's just within the last month. It's like one after another after another monologue. He's pillorying. These Sacred calves of the of the left, and I don't know how he's being received. But it's interesting because you write about Jimmy Kimmel, a guy that we've talked about before who by all accounts, has a past. That should mean he would be erased and extinguished from the American left. Not that were cheering it. Not that we want it. I don't think Bill Maher wants it. But this is the kind of thing that Bill Maher is warning against. I would think, And you think that's like Jimmy Kimmel would join him, but But have not Yeah, I take odd pleasure in writing stories like that, Because I've been before I've heard about how Alec Baldwin should be cancelled and debt. Midler should be cancelled and Jimmy Kimmel and I don't want people to be canceled. I'm saying, you know, this is the landscape that has been created. We've seen it time and time again. When people either are punished, punished severely. They go away. I think Roseanne Barr remains the greatest example of one tweet in her entire career is just vanished. And, uh, well, the reason why I write those things, in part because I want to show the hypocrisy in play. If the wo class who really wanted a better society, I think you and I would strongly disagree with it was there Strategies. At the same time, we say, you know, their heart is in the right place. I understand what they're trying to do. But no, they're hard headed in the right place. They're not trying to make a better society. They're trying to control the time they have the power that they want across the culture, and if they truly wanted a better society, they would follow their own rules and and the Kimball's and the Baldwins and the Midler's had begun. But that's not how it works and And I think Bill Maher in a way of tapping into elements that Christian Toto is with us from Hollywood in Toto. Another fascinating development. Tom Hanks, who I've said, is kind of you know, And whatever your opinion of him is, I don't I like him. I've always liked him. I've not find him found him that objectionable. I mean, is he a leftist? Probably. I actually predicted wrongly. But I predicted that after he and his wife reader Wilson got Covid remember what they one of the first prominent early people to get Covid. They were in Australia and I thought to myself. Once Tom Hanks comes out of Cove it on the other side of it. And by the way, wouldn't you love to know what kind of drugs he was given when he caught it? Because that was early and I think it was hydroxychloroquine. I'd love for him to tell that story. He probably won't but I predicted that his influence was such that once everybody saw that he was of a certain age and he came through it. It would calm everybody down. I was wrong. But I do think he has that kind of influence. But now even he is under attack. Yeah. He wrote a column recently and he said they talked about the I think it's 1921 was the Tulsa race massacre and, you know, I will confess. I did not learn about this in high school and I should have been and we all should have. It's an important event, but he kind of used that to say, You know, we need more racism instruction in schools. We need to make more movies about this element of our past and our current situation. Listen, I think he was kind of it was a wolf gesture, but it's also one that I think I understand. I think he made some good points. I think he's trying to be a better person. I think he's trying to kind of outrage to all communities. So you know we can it pick the column, but I think his heart was genuine the right place and like I said, I agree. I think I think he left of center, but I think you've seen I think he's been actually Someone who's been a voice of reason. Over the years. Any of the great actor I also think if you make Christian start interrupt, I also think he cares enough about An audience that doesn't agree with him politically, that he keeps his mouth shut for most of the time. I think I agree with that, or you know, and even when he does speak about politics, and it's left of center, he's not calling you and I are fools or You know, or worse, Like some of his garlic Do I mean, right? I mean, you can't you? You can't be a guy who plays Walt Disney and Fred Rogers and then go after half the country and have a successful career. I just don't think you can. Yeah, So I respect him on a lot of levels. And then NPR uncorks this column, saying that it's not enough for Tom Hanks to be a non racist. He has to be an.

"Go to war E mean there are certain things that are beyond the pale. This seems like I mean, it was a normal war. People die in war. It's a horrible thing. He he's so right. And this is the thing they always go. Oh, it's a war crime. Hamas deliberately deliberately put their weaponry. And puts key targets in civilian areas because they want it on the news because they know the national media in this country and other media is across the world are dumb enough, and in many cases on their side, enough that they'll show it and the perceptual be look at Israel. They go out looking to kill civilians. They do this all the time, and it is so gross because of a monster stops firing rockets at Israel. There won't be any wars. Right? This is the point that it's so often lost on these hard heads like Nicholas Kristof, who are like Yeah, Israel doesn't do enough to protect civilians. They do literally everything they can possibly do to provide warning to people to evacuate buildings that they know our targets. It is not Israel's fault. Hamas chooses civilian targets to shoot rockets from and finally and give Mark credit. He's pried it out of him. Oh, yeah, I guess they do. You know, war crimes, too. They're the ones doing it on any and Martin again. I hate to complement this guy. But do a. You know the rule on the show when people Do the right stuff. We say nice things about him. He's right. It's no different than the war crime sort of under the term assault weapon, right. The purpose of having a weapon, whether it's a handgun or what or a bazooka. Is to assault something. The purpose of war is to kill people and destroy things. Stop messing with them. They'll leave you alone. Exactly. That's exactly right on now, Bill Maher has a little history lesson for all of those people who are like free Palestine and Israel is an apartheid state. Listen, I would submit that Israel did not steal anybody's land. This is another thing I've heard last couple weeks. Words like occupiers.

There is no release relationship visually or statistically, between school district's reopening decisions in their counties Cove in 19 cases per capita In contrast, there is a strong relationship visually and statistically between district's reopening decisions and the county level support for Donald Trump. That's astounding. A follow up study in the fall by education next found the exact same leading correlation with the second biggest factor being the political strength of the local teachers union. I'm sure that will just shock you to your core. As with economic lockdowns. Here's where he really brings it home with the help of a liberal columnist in The New York Times, by the way, As with the economic lockdowns, these blue state school closures have disproportionately harmed poor and minority Children. And this is William Christoph in the Freak in New York Times. The blunt fact is that it is Democrats, including those who run the West Coast from California through Oregon, Washington state who have presided over one of the worst blows to the education of disadvantaged Americans in history. Rights. New York Times comes. Nicholas Kristof. Wow, That's some strong language. I'm surprised and missed this that that is amazing. Well, there ever be ever be a Price to pay for this. Well, anybody pay a price for the teachers, unions lose any power wound. Anybody get voted out of office over this because it is It's awful. It's awful what they did the kids in general and in specific Disadvantaged kids in response to your question, I would say it's unlikely they'll pay price. Because guy like Nicholas Kristof, he sticks his head up in the New York Times and goes against the You know the dogma of the left and says, Who's with me? And looks around and doesn't see anybody with them. I don't think read that last part, he said. Again. I insist. The blunt fact is that it is Democrats, including those who run the West Coast from California through Oregon, Washington state who have presided over one of the worst blows to the education of disadvantaged Americans in history, He goes on to say the result. More dropouts less literacy. At and numeracy widening race gaps in long term harm to some of our most marginalized youth. And then getting back to Matt Welch writing Yet instead of confronting, intending to roll back that glaring inequity, the Biden administration is actively made it worse. No doubt and still will not say. Committed to schools being open next fall, which is just mind blowing right right. They mentioned some of the CDC guidance that the kids have to stay six FT apart, as opposed to three ft advocated by the World Health Organization, which is his own pilot craft, But most governments worldwide have agreed with that assessment. And then he gets into how the teachers union nakedly and we talked about this wrote policy for the C D. C on how schools would be reopened, keeping in mind that there are thousands of private schools operating perfectly well with the kids. Three FT Apart, actively participating in sports, and then the recess and the rest of it. And everybody's fine. It's it is a crime against Children. It's historic is Nicholas Kristof says It's amazing. There's a lot more to this and I would love toc sure it with you at some point, but old They were preventing kids from playing outside. When that was by far the best thing they could do. Outdoor play, not just safe but essential for reducing the spread of the virus and increasing the well being of Children. And yet blue states like California kept police tape around playgrounds well into the fall. Unbelievable. And it's all about Trump. Well, that's not true. If you read Thomas. So will's a conflict of visions. There are different P kinds of people. They have a different mindset about humanity about the world. And if you have one mindset, you tend to be conservative. If you have the other, you tend to be liberal. Although there's now a split between liberals and woke liberals that's really, really interesting, but It's an incredible crime against the kids. We've said it 100 times. I'll let it drop. Yeah. Yeah. You know, I'm sorry. I won't let it drop. The fact that it happened Angers may the fact that no price will be paid. And very few Americans are aware of it or even have comprehended what happened And why it happened That that makes me nuts. I can't even think about it. Right? I think there will be a lot more discussion of this. I'm going to assume that most schools will be open next year like normal, but I assumed that for this year and was sure wrong. Um It's gonna be quite the ongoing conversation as schools try to figure out how to deal with these kids. How the hell do you teach a roomful of fifth graders? Some of whom are still third graders, right? Right and particulary poor and minority Children disproportionately. What are you gonna do with that? Lower standards Pretend they're doing okay. Inflate grades. Cover ups. I don't know. Hell of a challenge. I think they'll be a lot of passing along people who aren't ready for the next grade. But man, Oh man. Meanwhile, the folks in the Red States and the private schools they're gonna be saying Well, that's too bad for you guys. That's terrible.

So this insider, actually this story of founded from the sun via people dot com with an insider saying that Kim is great. She has a Valentine to say celebration planned with the kids in the family. She likes to make it special for the kids. She doesn't have any contact with Kanye. So that is buried in this story about Valentine's Day. Well, she did a photo shoot with her two younger sisters for skims. This is basically thong and bras and stuff. And, of course, um One of the things that I noticed is that Kim Kardashian has painted toenails, red painted toenails and the entire time she was with Connie. He liked nude guests. No, I could never wear color ever wore colored polish on her toes. She never once she's really cute feet. She's so petite. Yeah, she's so But you know, I was just like that to me was the was the psycho. Kim has been able to paint your toenails. The match her bikini outfit she's wearing. That isn't a Stoute observation.

I'm just saying it. I'm saying it right out loud. But they'll get away with it. Well, they are getting away with it, right? I mean, they're making a whole trial out of it. They will. They are banking on because they've been proven right. I mean, think about how often throughout the past year they have made things that Five years ago, 10 years ago, you said. That's absurd. That will never work and it's worked to perfection and they keep getting away with it. They keep getting to do whatever they want a large group of leftist radical lunatics. Whore down America over the summer, and a huge swath of people felt so bad about their white guilt that they voted for the people who did it. Yeah, if you can get away with that you can get away with anything. And so they're going to keep it up until the American people reject. What they're doing. Can we switch gears and make fun of Andrea Mitchell for me? Because did you see this exchange that Andrea Mitchell had with Ted Cruz yesterday It was glorious and I will give Andrea Mitchell some credit because she came back and apologize for it. But she made the mistake of trying to correct Head cruise on And she retweeted that and said Senator Ted Cruz says the impeachment trial is like Shakespeare full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. No, That's Faulkner because there is a book vulgar with that title, but he was specifically quoting an entire passage from Macbeth. And so So many people made fun of her. I mean, I cannot even begin to tell you like even Nicholas Kristof from New York Times was like pay. Andrea is right. And so Ted Cruz is response was to say me thinks she does protest too much. And he said one would think NBC would know the Bard. Andrea, take a look at Macbeth Act five, Scene five, and then he quoted it. And she responded. And again. I give her props for this because she didn't need to be quite this gracious. But she said to Shay, I clearly studied too much American literature and not enough, Macbeth. My apologies to Senator Cruz. We can agree. Ted Cruz comes off is a little smarmy and kind unlikable at times. I think that's fair, but he is about the last guy. I would want to get in an academic contest with right or try to correct on a clear quote that he's using. I don't think he's going to use a quote from something that he's not. Intimately aware of, you know what I mean? And in many ways, Ted Cruz is an American success story considering his dad. Mayor may not have killed Kennedy. Oh, my God.

"Well, we all sort of laugh and point at the debacle on Wall Street with Gamestop and all the rest of this. Meanwhile, the Democrats continue to push the idea that every conservative is, in fact, a white supremacist. One of the people pushing this, of course, the venerable Alexandria because you Cortez, representative, Democrat twitch. Bartender. Extraordinary, wonderful. Person all around. In any case here was AOC, she know, says that the house GOP is want is run by white supremacists and conspiracists. When she was just a delightful way to bring unity, Don't you think? So? It turns out that many of those Republicans were under the same threat that she was. Turns out. The vice president Mike Pence was on the road to extinction from some of those looters and rioters. And here's a scene nonetheless, declaring the entire GOP infrastructure is rife with white supremacy and conspiracy. Theorizing that in and of itself is a conspiracy theory by IOC But you know, this sort of stuff is considered mainstream Democratic rhetoric these days. There are legitimate White supremacist sympathizers that sit at the heart and at the core of the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives, and it increasingly seems, unfortunately, that In the House Republican Caucus, Kevin McCarthy answers to these Cuban on members of Congress, not the other way around. Mm. Yes, I'm sure that Kevin McCarthy is being running by the Cuban on members of Congress that the opposition to impeachment can't be rooted in a belief that Democrats are essentially trying to split the Republican Party. You can't be rooted in that It can't be pure political calculation. It also can be principled. It must be that the white supremacist have taken over the party. And this, of course, is the line here that if you don't do what Democrats want your white supremacist, which turns out to be their overall line more often. They're not. And and this is going to be the kind they use over and over and over again. So, for example, Nicholas Kristof has a piece in The New York Times today called a letter to my conservative friends. It is not a letter to his conservative friends about how they're very, very bad people. He says, Dear friends and neighbors relax. We liberals are plotting to round you up in reeducation camps. I was horrified when a couple of old friends here asked if they were in danger for having supported Donald Trump. I gently told them they were in no peril, and I was stung. They felt greatly relieved to hear it. Yes, I know. Fox News peddling nonsense about Democrats setting up reeducation camps and Wall Street Journal column asked if you were unenthusiastic Donald Trump supporter Are you ready to answer a reeducation program? Folks, you're being played. Again. And then, of course, his entire column is about how you're being deceived. Now, Here's the thing, he says. You're not going to a re education camp. It's just you've been Hoodwinked, exploited and manipulated by con artist waving flags, casting lives and monetizing bigotry. Let's give Americans a chance that two heels as Nicholas Kristof, and as I told, my worried friends don't hesitate to stand up for your conservative values. We need Republicans America benefits from a loyal opposition. But But he says, you know, actually, while we don't need a re education camp per se It's a dampen extremism, however. Which means that advertisers should stop supporting that works that spread lies and hatred. Cable company should drop channels that persistent doing stone as a start. Don't force people to subsidize Fox News by including it in basic packages. Oh, so you don't need a re education camp. You just stay where you are, and will re educate you by barring the news sources you like this is Nicolas Kristol. This his plan is we are your friends who also restrict your access to information as friends. So you will not be re educated, except that you will be re educated. Salad stuff in from Nicholas Kristof, he says, Is this a slippery slope? You're going after the advertisers on Fox trying to put them off here? Yes, and it makes me queasy. But we recognize there are red lines. Neo Nazis Ku Klux Klan. Grand Wizards have First Amendment rights. We shouldn't pay to give the microphones nor should commentators on the left or the right get mogul megaphones to promote violence. Extremists enjoy free speech but shouldn't be buttressed by advertisers or our cable fees. So I have a question. Um, does he have Any evidence at all that Fox news is responsible for violence. What's his evidence on this? Does he provide any? No. She's like, Yeah, They're red lines, and the red lines are like the KKK and the neo Nazis and Fox News. I don't think Nicholas Kristof has a lot of conservative friends. He says conservative friends fear not We're not planning to lock you up in detention camps. We need you to keep us honest. But you've been scammed in ways that have heard the country We all love hold us accountable. But please do the same for the Charlotte tends to deceive you. Use you and cheat you. And don't worry. He's gonna be one who who re educate you. It's not a reeducation. It's like a fun. It's a calling adult fun camp. Hillary Clinton once said, right, not a reeducation camp and adult fun camp or Nicholas Kristof reeducate you so if he's re educating you, it's not like it's like a reeducation camp as much as sort of like a reeducation poker night. He just stopped you from watching all the things that you want to watch and all the information that you want to date one of you. Exciting, exciting stuff..

"To Osama bin Laden? I'm comparing the words of a individual who would incite and radicalize somebody. As Osama bin Laden did to what President Trump did. You don't actually have to commit the violence yourself. Okay? I'm sorry. That's insane. That is insane. Also have been a lot and didn't just say mean things on the twitters. Osama bin Laden actively planned, fomented and achieved terrorist attacks, ending with the murder of thousands of American citizens. Not quite the same thing there, Eric Swalwell. It's always fun to hear about national security from a guy who was literally in bed with the Chinese by that's all that's always fun. Meanwhile, representative Clark, this would be Catherine Clark. She says that the president of the United States has spent his entire his entire administration fomenting white supremacy again. The goal here is to lump everybody together because that has predictable effects. That has pretty When you lump everybody together. Then you get to censor everybody. That's the fun of the game. So here is Captain Clark yesterday. The truth is President Trump incited a violent attack against the United States government. The truth is President Trump spent his presidency inflaming hate, white supremacy, anti Semitism and violence. The truth is, he was enabled by all those who perpetuated the lie that the most secure election in our nation's history was stolen. The truth is that these seditious actions less left five dead, our capital besieged Pretty in our democracy hanging in the balance the argument that Trump has done this all along. It was utterly inevitable. So that means if you voted for me, new is inevitable, So it's your fault. And that is that is the goal here and there are ramifications to this right. We can see the ramifications happening in real time, because if you believe not just that Trump did something wrong, but that everybody who agrees with Trump is engaged in quasi violent action. And the proper response is to shut them down. And that is precisely what we are seeing calls for from the same left that says. It's really just about Trump. We really just don't like his behavior. Really. Then why is Nicholas Kristof writing in today's New York Times that advertisers should boycott Fox News? Why's Thomas Friedman celebrating the fall of the Republican Party? More generally. It seems as though there might be a secondary agenda here and the secondary. Jenna might actually be the primary agenda for a lot of people for a lot of people. It seems that maybe the doubt about motivation are justified. We'll get to that in just one second first. Let's talk about the fact that censorship on social media sites it is a thing. It is a thing. I mean, they're hash tags that are being shut down their sources that you're not allowed to see. They're big tech sites that are banning accounts. But meanwhile, they're making money off of you. So why would you allow the big tech media bro's to make money off of you while simultaneously attempting to cut you off from content you want to see instead of letting social media sites do that instead, how about you revoke their right to your data? Now you could just deactivate all your social media accounts that would be giving the left just what they wanted in the first place. Instead, I use expressive VPN. Have you ever wondered how Frida Access sites make all their money? Well, the tractor searches your video history, everything you click on. And then they saw that data when you use Express VPN, you anonymous much of your online presence by hiding that idea dress that makes your activity more difficult to trace and sell to advertisers and express VPN couldn't be easier to set up.

I guess nicholas kristof who's always looking for sexual trafficking and i acknowledge sexual. Trafficking does go on and it is a terrible thing and it should not go on and you need you guys who want to really put a stop to it. You need to differentiate it which is nonconsensual commercial sex where people are being forced to have sex and some of these people might be underage or not. But they're being forced and it's a rape basically it's rape and this is illegal and it should be pursued as an illegal activity that it is but you got to differentiate that from the people that indulge in and make their living from commercial sex consensually.

No Stupid Questions
How Much Do Your Friends Affect Your Future?
"Stephen. I have a question that was tweeted at us by at death by four. Is the correlation of your five closest friends. A real predictor of success. And where you're going in life. Oh a lake the question. I can see why you like the question to because i know that you care about in study friendship so to me there to central questions. We need to try to answer. Their one is whether there is a strong correlation between your friend group and your future and if so whether there's something about that friend group that significantly causes your future to change or whether you choose friends who will fit the future that you're planning yes. I think that we should get to cause -ality once we get beyond correlation. That's i think the most interesting this question because there is this expression. Look at your five closest friends. That's who you are. And that's you're going to be but this is saying but i've always been very suspicious about saying have you not well if i think of my closest friends whenever by. That's all i care about eighteen. I make the top twelve year number. One always okay. My other rents okay. First of all. They're a lot like me so my friends are all practically manic there so like they're all women they're all around my age. They're all around my educational demographic. I think it's interesting to observe that are closest friends are so much like us. Okay so if that observation is accurate. Let's say in the aggregate then. I would have to think that that's a strike against the argument. In the question. I would think it's more a byproduct of the fact that you choose people to be friends who were kind of moving in the direction that you're moving in. Yeah and it's often called him. Awfully bird's feather tend to flock together. And if that's really the heart of the correlation that because we're so similar we aggregate than that does argue against your friends having a causal effect on your outcome because that's not really what's going on but there is evidence and i'm sure you're familiar with by nicholas kristof focus. Who runs the human nature lab at yale. He's the co author of a book called connect the surprising power of our social networks. And how they shape our lives. He makes an argument that our social circles influence us greatly in terms of emotions and behaviors everything from health politics etcetera and his argument. Is that really what we think of as the individual is actually much more compounded result of the people that we know and listen to. So what do you think of that. Research and argument yeah. Nick is probably the most famous researcher on this idea that our social networks are not only reflection of ourselves but actually cause changes in ourselves and he has this data from the framingham heart. Study which by the way was about as it suggests heart health and cardiovascular disease and so forth but it's also been mined by researchers just because it was a really robust set of data. yes opportunistically. Yeah i believe framingham. Is this little town in massachusetts. And i think the interesting feature of the data set is that because it was in this one geographic location. The people in the data set happen to know each other. And you can map out. Who's friends with whom who's relatives of whom who's married to whom who's tutors. Three degrees of separation et cetera and when nick analyzed this one of the famous findings was the finding that obesity is contagious. In the sense that your weight and your weight change was predicted. Not only by the people you know but the more startling finding is it's not even necessarily the there in your direct circle but maybe the outer circle. Goodbye influence you. Stephen and you happen to know someone else. And i don't even have to know them but my politics or the way. I eat or anything else could go viral as it were in the same way that actual virus goes viral.
Does closing schools slow the spread of coronavirus? Past outbreaks provide clues
"Okay let's start this conversation by talking about the number one thing on most kids minds and definitely the number one thing on most parents minds school closings so corey. Why take the kids out of school? Well Emily we've seen in the last few days a kind of tipping point where we went from schools closing. You know here there. On a case by case basis to honestly and just really forty eight hours last week schools starting to close statewide and in most of these places when the decision was made. The didn't actually have that many infections. So you know it. It may have struck people in the moment. Like kind of weird right. Why doing now. Why close if there aren't infections in our media rain so why do that well so I spoke to this guy? Nicholas Kristof. He's at Yale and actually does a lot of really interesting work studying. How ideas spread among other things And they happen to spread kind of like diseases and so when corona virus hit the scene given the interest in this topic and given the fact that you know I'm a physician also specialized in public health and Epidemiology. It was not a stretch for me to become interested in this topic. And so Chris Dacas said. Look yes you you can close the school when there's a case and probably everyone would agree that that is a sensible thing to do and it helps so there's a study. He pointed me to of H One n One. A Flu. Epidemic was about what years ago? Yeah so the study is of Japan's reaction and showed that closing the schools when there's a case made a difference and found that reactive school closures reduce the rate of infections in the community by nearly thirty percent. That is no small number percents so that makes a lot of sense to me but like you said schools in the. Us are closing all over the place even when there aren't a lot of infections. Yeah and I think part of that is because the science around covert nineteen at least in how it spreads is still kind of unsettled. You know. We're not totally clear on how kids can spread it We don't know if say a child you know doesn't seem sick. But is still carrying the corona virus. How will that child impact the people that here she comes into contact with right right like their parents or caretakers exactly so honestly out of an abundance of caution school closures? They limit contact. They limit the possibility of kids getting sick. And of passing along Corona virus to the people they love and Corey. You have an example from history of a time when school cancellations really helped out during a viral outbreak. What was that yeah? This was an enormous flu epidemic back in nineteen eighteen and there's actually a really good research on how U. S. cities responded including What happened to the city's the closed their schools early versus those that didn't so Nicholas Kristof ca says when you look at this research. The results really speak for themselves. If you compare a you know a Saint Louis which closed the schools in advance and kept them closed for longer. Their death rate was three hundred. Fifty eight people per one hundred thousand population but Pittsburgh which waited 'til later didn't keep the schools closed as much. Their death rate was almost three times as high eight hundred. Seven people dying per one hundred thousand population. Wow that is a lot of people. Yeah it's a lot of people And what about? How will that affect families in vulnerable populations? How how will that affect them? I imagined that all this comes with a cost. Oh absolutely and I think this is something. A lot of people aren't thinking about that. You know while keeping schools open has a public health cost so does closing them especially for vulnerable low income families. You know a lot of people don't realize that twenty million kids in this country more than twenty million depend on schools for free breakfast free lunch in some cases free dinner Many of them get medical care at school not to mention the fact that there are lots of parents out there who are working. You know low wage hourly jobs. They can't take off work. They can't work from home. So what happens with these kids? I spoke with Sonia. Santa Liza's she's the CEO of Baltimore City Public Schools which are now closed. And she really summed it up. Well for me are a large number of our students the safest place for them to be actually in school so if you think about this from her point of view in. Baltimore you know. The State of Maryland has closed schools for two weeks. That's a long time for some kids to be home alone. to be coming to distribution centres to pick up what are called. Grab and go meals. But honestly emily really really complicatedness is the fact that CDC released new guidance at the end of last week that said these short-term closures like two to four weeks. They're not even long enough to actually slow the spread of this disease. They might need to go much longer and I know there are a lot of school leaders around the country who are looking at guidance and scratching their heads. Like how much longer we talking about here? Well I mean the governor of Ohio Mike DeWine said on CNN. The Sunday you know. He's closed schools there for three weeks but he said it's perfectly imaginable that this is going to go on a lot longer and it would not surprise me at all if schools did not open again this year. Wow Mollica I want to bring you in on this. Because you've been looking at the ways this can really affect families. Yeah if schools are closed it can definitely put a lot of pressure on families I spoke to Joy Osowski. She's a clinical and developmental psychologist at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center. And here's what she said. One of the issues. Is You know a lot of parents need to work. And they cannot work remotely and even if they can work remotely. There are a lot of different kinds of things that need to be done for children. If they're not in school yet puts also much more pressure on parents because there isn't the routine of school so there are more meals at home. There's more care for children needed during the day and so they really have to establish what we would call a new normal anew routine and that way so how can parents create that routine and deal with that well You know she had a lot of different ideas but the one that struck me was that Older children can take some responsibility. I myself am the oldest of five siblings and I helped with my siblings growing up. She says that they could basically watch younger kids and help around the house doing chores and that kind of thing And she says it actually is helpful for the older children and can give them a sense of responsibility a sense that they're like actually contributing to the family in a time of crisis And I asked a soft ski weather. Older kids really do step up to the plate and she says that actually she's found after disasters like Hurricane Katrina for example. Older kids have been really helpful. They're helping younger kids out with schoolwork So parents can lean on them. This older kids do your part of the job description. When you're born you got a job description and it's look after sampling. Yeah and what about talking about the virus itself because I know a lot of families are really scared and there's a lot of anxiety around it and maybe they're not sure what to say? I mean a softy said is that parents need to be informed check the CDC website listen to NPR. And there's really really good news for families on the one end. Kids don't really seem to get very sick and emily. I JUST WANNA add a couple of things to from the episode. I just recorded with my colleague on your comments on parenting and current virus over life kit. When you're talking with kids make sure you're not making promises you can't keep so. Don't tell them. Oh no you won't get it because you don't know that and I always liked to channel Mister Rogers whenever I can which is look for the helpers trust in the helpers know that the helpers are out there our country is full of doctors and experts and professionals who are there to help take care of us when we need them and that will be a comfort to kids. This is the time for the helpers for
The Book Review
Americans on a Financial 'Tightrope'
"On January fourteenth in the first of a year long series of Book Review Live Events. My colleague Jennifer Celaya the critic here at the New York Times interviewed Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl Wudunn about their new book tightrope. The following is a little bit of an excerpt from from that event and that conversation. I wanted to start off by talking about the genesis of this book project. which you know is it's really interesting for a variety of reasons but one of the things that struck me was that this is your fifth book together and your other books have taken you across the world you've looked at AH poverty initiatives Kenya you've looked at education for girls in China? And you know this is something. That's much closer to home home. I mean literally is home for you neck. So can you tell us a bit about how you decided to write about Yam hill well. It's partly exactly that we were traveling around the world covering humanitarian crises. And then we would go back to my beloved hometown of the Am Hill. Where my mom still lives on the family farm and we saw a humanitarian crisis unfolding there and You know I my old school busses. This is kind of a network of old friends and you know we realized that about a quarter of the kids on that bus had passed passed away from consequences of Drugs Alcohol Suicide Ruckus accidents and and and related pathologies. And this was. This wasn't just one towns problem. This was a nation's problem and that there is something of a great social depression Russian happening across the country even in the Great Depression. Life expectancy didn't fall the way does. Now it's three years in a row in the US and it seemed to us is that this wasn't getting adequate attention that we could write about it and to some degree. Use My this town that I care very very deeply about as a narrative thread to tell that story nick and channel I I want to talk about the themes in this book on the subject took the spokane the issues and the questions that it raises because those are really important. The really urgent and I think it's something that everybody needs to think about and confront but I it did want to have a bit of a process question because I think there's a number of people I know maybe myself included. Who the idea of writing a book with one Spouse House seems maybe complicated and so this is your fifth book together and I just wanted to know a little bit about how that works the division vision of Labor? What happens when you disagree about something was so I write the subjects and he writes the verbs? We each right half a book but the Nice thing is that you only have to write half a book somehow magically appears to be a whole book but we we are we do have very similar views have a slightly more sort of economic business taken. He is slightly more sort of political socio economic. Take so it's actually very complimentary and we do discuss things a lot We you know the treatment of certain topics we really do discuss. We each right sections We don't necessarily know what's going to be a full chapter in the very beginning and then we mix and match and then our editor speaks up and then this chapter the two goes to chapters sixteen and sixteen goes to chapter four. And you know. There's a lot of mixing and matching and moving around when editing. Of course the voice of the book is very much in a unified voice. I mean do you end up going over each other's chapters just to make sure that we coast constantly totally editor I mean and that's because we were. I'm I'm a former report but we're both sort of journalistic experience and so we're just used to being edited fair. That's we're still married so one of the things that I noticed in the book from the from the get goes that you start off with some some really arresting analogies so you make mention of Dante's inferno you call the situation in America Today Today Twentieth Century futile them. I think you know and I think for a number of Americans. Those are really striking. Maybe startling analogies and I was wondering during what did you mean when you decided to use those those words so we talked a lot about that because they are very striking images and we used to to think that when we were traveling around the world visiting some of the places both in China and other other parts of the developing world that the poverty and the pain and the suffering that we saw their overseas was of a dimension that was just far greater than anything that one could see here here in America and then when we started learning more about what was going on in our own backyard. We started learning a lot more about how the pain and suffering that people were. Were feeling here and it really is about the human condition and it's about just the Catharsis sometimes but also the intense searing depression that that people feel and so it really is very comparable it was it was surprising surprising to us and shocking to us. And if you look back at what is happening in many towns across America. It isn't inferno for these people and for these families. I mean we were really searching for metaphors to Kinda grab people by the Lapel and high offered the metaphor. I'm going to go but great great social depression you know. At least in the Great Depression there was an enormous effort through government policy to address it and mitigated and it feels as if now there is this horrendous suffering out there and there isn't a similar government effort to address it and indeed that that suffering isn't all that even noticed by those who were doing better at in the first class deck. There's a party going on. And meanwhile the ship of state is kind of capsizing in ways that obviously affect those below decks but it ultimately affect our whole country and we were searching for ways to convey that urgency. And that's what we hope. Tight rope will will do to try to broaden the conversation from just trump's tweets of the day to this larger convulsion that the country is enduring part of the country is just feeling something far worse than the Great Depression because what is driving that decline in life expectancy is depths of despair. It's basically the debts let's That had been well documented by Angus Deaton and Anne case Very elegantly in their research. That shows that These debts are basically three of three types. Alcohol related deaths deaths from overdose related to drugs and suicides. We're at the highest rate of suicides in this in in this country since World War Two. These are stunning statistics. And somehow or other they're not yet rising to the surface
