The Inflation Increasement Act

"Secular fanaticism is the curse of 20th and 21st centuries. These people are fanatics. The mansion deal he calls it the bench and deal. Features massive new subsidies for solar and wind over the next few years, massive is correct. Plus tens of billions of dollars in other handouts designed to dramatically increase the percentage of these unreliable sources of energy on our grid. Number two, it aggressively restrict fossil fuels. It includes among other things new taxes on oil and gas. And worse of all, granting the Biden EPA essentially unlimited power, I don't understand that. Didn't think Supreme Court just ruled. Oh, but Congress can make a law. Well, they can make a lot of Supreme Court. It'll be going to court. Well, by the time it goes to court, everything will be shut down that matters. Essentially unlimited power to restrict fossil fuel projects. It gives billions of dollars to the left wing causes it includes billions for undefined environmental justice. Prager rule number 36. Whenever justice gets an adjective, it's not justice. Social justice is nothing to do with justice, environmental justice has nothing to do with justice. Racial justice has nothing to do with justice. Just know that. And you will begin to understand the double talk. You are willing and language of the left. There's justice, and there's injustice. Just like when you add a word to democracy, like people's democracy, it's a bad sign. North Korea, a gigantic concentration camp. Is the people's democratic republic of Korea. People's democratic. Okay. The White House commission report is an extreme environmental justice is an extreme left wing wish list. That says we must quote sunset investments by 2030. That is just 8 years from now. In fossil fuels plastics and are you ready? This proves that they're fanatics and lawyers. The environmentalist world. And nuclear power. It actually says we must sunset investment in nuclear power. They don't give a damn about carbon emissions, but give a damn about destroying the society we live in. Environmentalism is to the environment what communism was through workers. The great Green New Deal gives government limitless corruption inducing power. The deal itself has tens of billions that bureaucrats can allocate arbitrarily. Tens of billions. Manchin's requested permitting policies would give new illegitimate powers that are guaranteed to be exercised corruptly.

Dr. Naomi Wolf Discusses Substance-Induced Psychosis

"But what I really want to focus on is the idea here of the over prescription of antidepressants and these other interventions. And to help us unpack that, someone who I really enjoy having on, the author of the bodies of others, the new authoritarians COVID-19, and the war against the human, the author of which is doctor Naomi wolf, doctor welcome back to the program. Thank you so much, Charlie. It's really great to talk to you. Please call me Naomi. Naomi, thank you for joining us again. So give us your thoughts here, nihilism, mixed with these incredibly, let's say, powerful pharmacological compounds such as SSRIs and benzodiazepines, zoloft and Xanax, and how we are over prescribing them to our nation's youth, the latest study shows that 12 to 13% of our nation's young people are on some form of psychiatric drugs. What is the potential downside of that? What are your thoughts? Yeah, well, just, you know, I have to always start conversations like this by warning that I'm not a medical doctor. That said, I've written three. Non fiction books about health issues about the pharmaceutical industry. And I'm a mom and a step mom. And I really agree with you about your concerns. First, what I would say is we've imposed on children and teenagers in young adults in the last two years. Circumstances that the bodies of others points out are guaranteed to cause mental illness to cause anxiety to cause depression. And to cause other kinds of stress is that young adults have never been subjected to really in the history of human beings. Outside of places like North Korea or the Warsaw ghetto. And what I mean is this, just in the last two years, we isolated young adults. We isolated teenagers. We kept them at home, you know, chained to computers. We didn't let them go to school. We sent them home from university. Even now and the bodies of others starts with, and I've written about this a lot, you know, starting with my book in 2008, the end of America, which looked at the effect of isolation on political prisoners. You're not allowed to keep political prisoners isolated. You're not allowed to keep prisoners isolated or in solitary confinement for long, even one day of isolation causes permanent changes in the brain. And can cause mental illness and psychosis. So we, to my astonishment, at places like Ivy League universities, major state universities, kids who test young adults who test positive for COVID and these PCR tests are full of problems as I point out as well. They're isolated for up to a week alone in their rooms with not allowed to be outside with other young

"Story right. Yeah it was. It was absolutely north korea. Doing these cyber attacks against sony. We're not saying it wasn't but we are saying that's a heck of a leap to make. And there were credible very credible people saying that. It absolutely wasn't north korea. So you know you. Just i just have to open. Open your third high. Maybe i don't know. I can't i don't know how you figure out what's true or not these days so we do know that with that being said with that wheelbarrow salt poured onto of All these stories. You hear from north korea about north korea. We do know that some of the crazier stories are true because as we said at the top. We have our friend. Kenji fujimoto who is able to confirm some and then we have some Some good firsthand reports here. So what's what's one crazy story all right. Well you are going to have to elaborate on this one for me. But i remember hearing a story about a rabbit breeding program. That didn't go very or they're there. It's a very large species of rabbit That i guess. North korea wanted to have a small population of them in order to breed them. Yes yes it's true uh-huh so in in a guest two thousand seven or so. Twelve giant rabbits were delivered to north korea. the breeder who sent them Found he thought they were going to be used to make a rabbit farm but he suspected that they were eaten by the top officials Berlin north korean embassy denied the allegations. But you can read some more about this in spiel on the online. The the german Journalism this is an article by david. Crossland and these rabbits guys are so big their biggest dogs they make about eight kilos of of me absolutely. Yeah that's huge but it may have been. I was thinking about this. It may have been despite the food shortage that they tried the rabbits. 'cause you should try before you like do this whole thing you wanna start a rabbit industry. Nobody wants nobody wants them but maybe date them and they didn't taste good. That's that's another. I could see that. I could see that but there are other crazy stories as well. Another story is that. There is a difference in size between north and south korean nationals. And it's thought to be due to to malnutrition than north koreans. Who were subjected to. Yeah you hear this. A lot from especially from americans so former presidential candidate john mccain talked about it in two thousand eight debate Christopher hitchens talked about it in an article in slate but some actual research instead of just rendering came from guy named professor daniel schwer From a university in seoul he said on average north. Korean men are about one and a half to three inches shorter than men in south korea. And the interesting thing is that due to the homogeneous nature of the population like genetically right We know that this doesn't come from a large variation or diversity in the gene pool.

That mean this is one of the big worries in your life. If you a north korean and like we can look at one of these things like during the famine of the nineteen ninety s. That's the thing you mentioned earlier. The arduous march through somewhere in this is a huge huge variants in number here but somewhere between two hundred and forty thousand and three point. Five million north koreans died of vacation or some form of hunger related issue right yes so maybe not just starvation directly but something exacerbated by starvation This yeah this number is Huge number two huge variance. As we said but i In a country that does keep adequate records or does allow people in more easily. The you still have a variance. You still have a variance because it's difficult to say the exact cause of death rain but then in countries But in the case of north korea this is even more difficult because there are very few official numbers kept in. That's been the case for fifty years. Yeah this leads us. Through something darker though yep cannibalism so there is confirmation of. Let's say isolated cases of y. You know there are also a lot of rumors about cannibalism rights of some of these isolated cases would p. stuff like a grandfather digging up his graves after they passed away and eating them because he had to the idea But there are also these rumors of large scale. Cannibalism that took place during certain times in north korea. Really we we don't know we can't prove it right because these statements come down often through defectors.

"The grandfather of kim jong un the current leader. Yes kim il sung is the is a god-like figure a kim. Il-sung is the leader of north korea. Which means that technically speaking. He is considered still the leader of north korea despite his death. There's your three generational rule there Yes and it's interesting. You say that we'll we'll see how that shakes out later. A kim il-sung is referred to as the great leader. The country's eternal president His birthday as a holiday. It's called the day of the son. He ruled north korea of for forty six years from nineteen forty eight until he passed away in nineteen ninety four During the time leading up to is passed away his son. Kim jong il who most of us will probably remember better He took leadership and it was during his rule that the country encountered some of those very tense difficult times including The famine known as the arduous march and nuclear standoffs But we have a new leader now and that is One of his sons. Right now. Kim jong hoon. He was selected by kim jong il over his other two others. That's i mean. Hey props man right yeah he. He is interesting because he has a He has a european schooling so he is someone who has been raised outside of the country. And i believe he went to school in switzerland. He is not necessarily the he he is not necessarily the air heir-apparent in the way with think these things normally go. He's not eldest son. No there were issues. Let's say with two the other candidates that would have been before him right. Yes so there. Are two other candidates. Was kim jong nam and kim jong tool And i'm mispronouncing i apologize. I don't speak korean very well. But the The brothers were the brothers who didn't make it Were passed over because one of them was caught trying to go to tokyo. Disneyland in two thousand. One and there was a huge embarrassment. One of the others was seen as effeminate by their father So here we are with kim jong hoon as The leader of the dprk or at least the face of it. And that's that's the important thing right. Despite the appearance of an absolute monarchy right The private version seems a little bit different. There are a lot of high raking senior officials that date back or did date back all the way to the days of kimmel song and seniority being so important in this society their words carry weight. Oh yeah and it's i feel like the system is kind of similar to hire advisers that let's say. The president listened to on a daily basis to make a high level decisions even if they're repeatedly wrong. Oh yeah but it's you know you you kind of have to go with the person that probably knows best right yeah And another another weird thing here So the stated aim of north korea is reunification. It's something that both create want in principle right and The problem there is that the the problem there is that the there's just a battle of population that occurs because both both want. The peninsula reunified in some manner or way because there were families that were split apart by this divisions thirty eighth parallel division But you know both countries wanna be in the driver's seat right and then when you look at the population you you mentioned that. The republic of korea has almost twice as many almost twice as many people So we would seem as though if you were just looking from that aspect alone you. They would kind of absorb north korea. Or at least that's the way it seems. And i'm pretty certain north korea wouldn't want that right We we are going to look at some of the questions about that too toward toward the end here now met you watched the interview right. I did yeah. I watched the interview to it. Wasn't it wasn't my favorite thing. I felt like you know what's what's the point where satire just becomes kind of racism. But i i'm a big fan of seth rogan James franco. I think they're funny guys. the guy who played kim jong un is is a really funny. Do but you have to wonder how much of that is again like propaganda but there was a great point interview Where they say that there is a false impression that this nation strives to give visitors and the outside world. Oh yeah the. I'm thinking of the scene in particular. Where james franco's character goes and finds that little food store in. It's just all fake food and it's all props essentially setups for him and other outsiders to think that there is plentiful food in the area yet. There's a great Read it ama from a north From a photographer who's traveling to north korea. Pretty often until he started being refused entry for taking photos. You shouldn't take and he said that There are few there's like two supermarkets and killing young or something but the only people really Shop at those are the elite of. We know that there is propaganda. Work in north korea. And you know it's its own industry as well so it's difficult to understand how much of what the government says is true how to parse the truth between the statements. But there's another point this makes us think of well. Yeah it's not just propaganda coming out of north korea of about how great it is. There's also a ton of propaganda aimed at you about how bad north korea is an all these terrible things and how everyone there is starving though there is some truth to it. A lot of this stuff are just exaggerations to kind of shape your view of the country as a whole right. There's a lot of an echo chamber going on a and nowhere was this more apparent then In the recent interview related news.

I talk talk therapist. I was very confused. I remember writing my vote in your like my editor or saying in me. You know you're traumatized you need to go talk therapist as what is there. What is trauma because north korea. They don't have the for stress or trauma. Because how can you be stressed in the sitters paradise. The don't let you be knowing what that is. So and then they were like yeah hearing people having problems go talk therapist and as a like. How much is the two hundred dollars per hour his discounted rate too. So you not thank you know. We know that freedom comes responsibility and in a way is not that easy to be free thinking for yourself constantly renewal in a way. I understand it as give government every power.

And that's how north korea begin hoping the government gonna represented my own interest leaving that they were good and read that benefit of daren fade. You began the nightmare right so freedom is not like a gateway to be happy at all in a way you can make live allow more complex. But then it's fun isn't it. You start being for yourself is. They're making mistakes and is so fun to be free. Even though you can be suffering way more than the people who are not free the thing about freedom is when you have freedom you also the responsibility for your actions and that could be a huge burden because If you succeed it's you but if you fail you and if you do horrible things it's you if you don't do something for example if you don't help people north korea issue and that's a huge burden and living with that burden is a kind of suffering. I mean there. There's some aspect in which freedom is suffering suffering because life is suffering and then the freedom is You as an individual fully living through that.

And it's really important for north korea but just keep talking about it until there's until hopefully leads to at the highest levels of power re revolutionizing the systems in the world and then In china and north korea do you see not career being a potential instigator of a nuclear war. They were not starting curry war as long as they can do. Whatever they want right now. North korea's army not designed to fight the enemy did design to prevent their own people could the and the revolution with their own citizens. That is one point. Six million north korea with a tiny country the forest largest armies in the world so this country designed to five their own citizens and the army the fourth largest in the world is designed to basically fight its own people oppressor on people. That's what north korea mattress is about. Okay let me As you some aspects about north korea life who can described the song bond system of ascribed status used in north korea. Yeah so that's a very interesting right right now. There are a lot of people playing this ideology of like democratic socialism. Socialism comments water recall marxism-leninism. Ray they have all like this similar features where we give collective power to certain entity and they make the decision for the bigger right and north korea came. We'd idea the cumulus song he was the leninist marxist say i'm going to create the most equal society on human face so it was a communist north korea and then they came up with his homework. Winds is like family casas them. Three categories warrior wavering. An hostile and that in building three classes they divide into fifteen different classes so a lot.

"The men of jacket so when tried blow as much area could an end man was with like putting more like his jacket on right not taking up but sunshine came came when i give them a lot of worms and took his jacket it out and came out with our the theory. Let's give north korea as much love ones as giving them a lot of money. Whatever they wanted to give them who they know that we are not here to attack them and nor screw what they did raise the guy who did a sunshine policies. Korean names gimnasia when the nobody spice for that and skimmed on. You used the money to nuclear the nuclear weapons. So that's how they came the nukes. So i think that's the thing the loves those problems but there's got to be awareness. The hope is with a twenty for centuries you can directly. Speak to the people somehow when there's no internet when there's nothing like that it's hopeless. I think china. There's a hope that china is still connected. The i love your optimism. I have seen the the accurate dark side of china on the underground. I hope i think that's the thing people he know us right is oh how can you beat that bad. They asked me. Like i walking passing this young teenager man in nature the war with my sister. He's intestine coming up through his bat way and even in the moment what he wants to. Please give me food. He was hungry his intestines hanging out of his body. And he's asking for food. You know where. Humans demand randy die in north korea. Or they want is eating right and beepers say all nothing can be. That bad mood be praised as a hero. I haven't seen an asher through evil. Would you say that the evil comes from a tiny minority of people or is it permeate much. Larger parts of the population like if we look at sex trafficking. many people they is it. Ninety nine point nine percent of the people are are longing to do good in the world or is there is it Or do we all have the capacity for evil in certain kind of environment certain kinds of governmental structures inspire a large percent of the population to do bad things. I think humans are capable of anything. There is no exception. I there's any saying to bomb with the morality. I think in north korea. You can say initially that there's few guys in the top wanted the power and then doing this but eventually made society where people don't even know compassionate he'd another concept of we don't know the unit to feel bad for another human being in their suffering the fact that you know compassion is in your knowledge. That's why you do that. She men's need to learn is not anything bad about human nature just say humans are capable thing. we are the most adaptable species on the planet. That's why we create internet. I talking this way right norther anymore. Have done it because we are sawed up double. That is a good thing. And it's a bad thing. So in the adopters titian day or can be during the holocaust right those people they could have incapable of good to if they were exposed to different system. And that's why when people under a sm- evil that's what scares me ever is evil is a different thing is a completely different thing. And of course. I get your idea. We don't want to isolate one point. Three billion human beings in on earth. Why chinese but the thing is we are talking about this regime. Not the people i love. Chinese provides big chinese. I loved all about the country but the system does promote evil with an optimistic view. Actually because we can fix systems yeah It's harder to fix people so we fixed systems and the people are adoptable..

You don't feel anything for that person so even with your mom like what was was there some. I don't know some warmth the you were able to extract from the connection with your mom. Of course. I think that made me survive. I had a very strong connection reading my family. And i think that's what kept me going to do all of that. I think as you said. I escaped at thirteen. My sister at the age of sixteen escaped you their friend. I and i was going to escape to her. But one day i got a really bad stomach and my parents took me toss bitter and north korean hospital. They don't have like x. ray machines. They don't even have electricity. They literally using one needle to inject everybody and be prudent. Die from cancer. North korea die from infection. Fever and hungary is most likely die. More by being treated by. Dr not being treated at think i was lucky even though they thought had appendix. They operate on me without any painkiller and i get infection i survived. So that's how. I got delayed to escape to my sister and she left me a note in my best is saying. Follow this lady and this is another chick about human trafficking way. She sold me to china as a sexual slave and she executed for later and she had that later she had the five daughters and she sold all her children to china and we can now sitting. You're using like how heartless you are selling your own children to and as a six year slave they were Seven ten years old but that was the only way for her to save her children. And if she didn't serve me that they would be dead right now so. I'm grateful that she sold me and i think that's the thing is live is so crazy you cannot. Judge is so complex and yet that's how she changing my life by selling me. She soared my mom and myself into dozen seven to china. You're grateful for the grateful for that suffering. of course.

"Aspect in which that experience gives you a clarity about the world like somehow experiencing suffering allows you to deep deeply experienced joy yet and love and also empathize with the suffering of others. And like it's almost like brings you closer to other humans so it's this double edged sword that That the highest joys sometimes are catalyzed by suffering. And it's hard to know what to do with that. You see that was world war. Two the stories of soldiers that have suffered but some of the closest bonds of brotherhood of just pure love was experienced by them. And it's it sucks that our brains are like this you know the love requires hardship. I don't know why that is. Yeah that's like that's thing of course in my journal learned how to survive right when to not trust and meant to run but i think most of i was keep learning what it means to be a human being. I think that was like ultimate thing. I was keep learning. And i stood on lawfully. Men's by i do think seems like suffering is next Take for people to be grateful and even be joyful to sometimes. Yeah so i talk about love quite a bit. You mentioned romantic love On fascinating about love and many aspects But you you mentioned. Romantic love was forbidden in north korea. Would you think about love now. The kind of discovered it was the role of love in life. Why was it. So why do you think was forbidden. North korea so tragic thing banners career not only just banning shakespeare like. We don't even know. Julia is right. Our movies never love stories but then today banned the love between mother daughter wife and husband and you know and you between your friends it deny you being a human. So only love.

I think you definitely love science right. Imagine if you're being denied so there are so many loves in life but in north korea all of those are denied and i think for me is love makes you tick like in a law for your chad now for your parents friends lauffer even your surf. That is denied. So i mean many people say like love is auction but like then why do you live. Thank you relived love. And it doesn't have to be romantic love. It can be anything but finding love and it in any person in any subject. I think that's a goal. I think that's when people find meaning in something yet. We'll of romantic. Love is just one sort of of it. One echo of the some corps thing yes science science of robots all of those things..

"The following is a conversation with yanni park a north korean defector human rights activists and author of the book in order to live cook mentioned of our sponsors the campo gala games. Better help and aid sleep. Check them out in the description to support this podcast. Let me say a few words about north korea from nineteen ninety four to ninety eight north korea went through a famine mass starvation caused primarily by king jong il. Who at the time was the new leader of north korea after his father's death in nineteen ninety-four somewhere between six hundred thousand. Three million people died due to starvation from all the stories of feminine history including my own family history of come to understand that hunger tortures the human mind in a way that can break everything we stand for north korea during the nineties famine many were driven to cannibalism imagine more than ten million people suffering starvation for months and years always on the brink of death. We don't know the exact numbers of people who died because the suffering was done in silence and darkness very little information in or out. Most people had to survive without electricity without clean water medical supplies sanitation and food. The north korean propaganda machine called this the arduous march or the march suffering and words such as famine and hunger were banned because they implied government failure and once again now in twenty twenty one km joan on the current leader of north korea is calling for his country to prepare for another arduous march or march of suffering another period of mass starvation as the country closes its borders looking at atrocities of the past decades and the encroaching atrocity. There now i think about the quiet suffering of millions of north koreans. I think about the torture of the human spirit. I think about a north korean child who could be a scientist an artist a writer but who instead grows impossibly thin without food their body slowly rotting away as their parents watch helplessly. I got emotional in this conversation with you own me in part because i remembered my grandmother who.
