Mark Levin Pays Homage to Historian Paul Johnson
"A great historian passed away By the name of Paul Johnson They truly great historian It was British but he wrote a fantastic book about American history About Jewish history world history the guy was absolutely brilliant I think he wrote like 40 books maybe more When he was very young he started out as a leftist slowly began to move more conservative and then when he saw what the trade unions were doing in Britain particularly in London and shutting down the entire country and their industries and all And then when he saw what Margaret Thatcher did to break the nation's hold from the blackmailer was taking place over there and how she turned things around He moved to the conservative camp But he was a fantastic writer and historian He was 94 and I just wanted to mention it because certainly one of my favorite Paul Johnson passed away Now here's a man alive 94 years and 90 9% of the public's never heard of before It's the way it goes

"We can imagine the reigning champions France and I just wanted to have a quick look across some statistics and Kylian Mbappé. I know you know him because he lived in France great friend player plays with PSG currently the top goal scorer in the whole World Cup. So that's coming up on Saturday and I'm sure lots of people are going to be out watching it. And I'm like, I live in England, pay my taxes here, but I have a French surname. Yeah, but it's sad to see no pictures of Jude Bellingham the 19 year old who's been making waves, he became the first England, the youngest player to score an assist. Provide an assist. Providing assistance. It's nice to see young talent coming through in this group because obviously we've seen some of the players we didn't have Marcus Rashford or Sterling on the pitch last night, so it seems to be Gareth Southgate is making a choice to get these more younger players through who are setting up assists so not a bad thing really. I got to say I didn't watch the game, but I have been reading a lot more about football in recent days and the write ups about Jude Bellingham very impressive. This is like the trickle down effect applied to sport. I'm trailed. Okay, look, let's go back to the thing that's been in the papers in the end. What else? Well, no, definitely not. So we've heard about this over the last few months, haven't we strike action across the country is really set to cause widespread disruption over the Christmas period, and The Guardian is reporting on the RMT union, and it's rejecting an offer that rail employees aimed at holding off more workouts so thousands of RN team members across 14 train operations and network rail are due to stage two 48 hour strikes this month, and I know it's always a mission for me to get home and the rest of the country, but the rail delivery group which represents a train company's have offered the union a pay rise 8% over two years with a guarantee of no compulsory redundancies. However, as we know, this is just not being accepted by the RMT because they are asking for more money in line with inflation and they want better pay conditions. So once again, we're going to see more strikes, you know, across many sectors, it's not just the RMT. Sort of very broad keeping us all busy. Recent weeks reporting on all these strike actions, look, Leon, I want to bring this to this really interesting opinion piece in the times by Paul Johnson the director of the institute for fiscal studies talking about diversity and bringing the best out of the diverse population in the UK. This is so worth a read. I feel like I learned a lot from this story, Steven, and Lizzie, which is always a good thing. Now basically he's been writing after the office of national statistics published new data on the ethnic composition of the English and wealth population, and I don't think this is surprising, but it showed it's become ever more ethnically diverse and Paul Johnson tells the times and understanding the diversity of experience across ethnic groups has never been more important, saying one thing is clear to talk about the black and minority ethnic population as a single group can hide as much as it reveals and he goes to say there's often bigger differences in education occupation and income between different ethnic minorities. So a lot of interesting great. Yeah, there's a really information survey as well out today by boot. It's this network of senior black Asian minority ethnic executives, 70% of ethnic minorities say they've experienced discrimination in the past year. So I'm sure we'll be talking about that report and also this piece from Paul Johnson throughout the morning. Thanks very much Lee Ann garand. Well, let's turn back to what's happening on the markets and we're very delighted to have our markets correspondent, because you go to the studio with us. This is a treat. You're not normally with us in London. So we're delighted to have you. Of course, lots been happening over the weekend. We're still unpicking the jobs report from Friday, lots of focus today though on China, this moves to eat COVID restrictions. Talk us through what we're seeing in terms of market reaction. Well, you're still not seeing a major market reaction, which I think is quite surprising this morning, especially because you do have these Chinese COVID restrictions easing. As the testing measures in a lot of these major capitals, that's really important Beijing, Shanghai, even some of the tech capitals where we've seen a lot of the protests really take off. That is significant and yet if you look at American futures, for example, there's still actually down an under pressure sentiment even in Europe under pressure as well, which tells you that really, it's the fed and the jobs data that's foreshadowing or overshadowing all of it. The idea here that yes, the payrolls number came in quite hot, I believe, over 200,000 on Friday, but it's the wage growth that matters because what you are trying to do here is find some sort of delayed reaction in the jobs market. And we haven't quite seen that. The idea that higher rates are going to put some pressure on the job market create some slack there. And we saw that in some data, you've seen in the payrolls in the ADP private payrolls data. You've seen it in jolts data, a job openings essentially in the states. What you haven't seen it in though is that kind of surface level payer number and then wage growth. People are still demanding more money. It's a story that is around the world that is going globally. I would certainly love a bigger paycheck as we would all, but this is significant. Outside of New York. Oh, I'll say it on the New York air two, but look, this is a global story all around the world. And it's because of this inflationary story that still has not seen the slack that I think a lot of people were expecting to show up by now. And so part of the reaction from the jobs numbers was seen in the dollar. We've seen the raise more than half of this year's gains. Is that going to continue? Well, there were stories that the dollars interesting because for so long it was driven by this very aggressive Federal Reserve, and now that you look at some of the bond market pricing here, simply the idea that the peak policy rate of the Federal Reserve has kind of stalled out 5, 5 and a half percent if you kind of go by Goldman's more hawkish kind of numbers, even by that point, even as we've seen more hawkish commentary, we say there's still a

"This is an historic day. The chance of the exchequer stood up and said, we have austerity. You and I read Paul Johnson 1987, the English disease. It was a beautiful essay about the struggles of Clemente, Churchill and the rest coming forward. What is the level of crisis in your United Kingdom right now? Is it something that's solvable? Is it a two year recession as Bailey talks about? Or is it an English disease that is larger? I think that's a very difficult question to answer. I think the finances of the economy prospectively going forward are in better shape now than they were prospectively with the budget, the mini budget was put forward in September that helped spark the whole crisis in the guilt market. But the UK still struggling with Brexit and struggling with a lot of struggling with inflation issues. And the Bank of England, I don't think has raised rates quickly enough or early enough to get on top of that. But now we're faced with very interesting question. I think the U.S. may be first today. Can policy makers raise rates enough tighten policy enough to get inflation under control without sparking a significant operative right now in the financial stability, John Williams talked about yesterday. Are these traditional theories operative right now? Well, I think the Phillips curve hasn't been operative since the late 1960s. And I think it is very I knew what the writing is. Very interesting. Very interesting that the very flat Phillips curve that policy can keep pushing and employment down without raising inflation comes back as something that's going to cure the inflation problem. I mean, the main thing about inflation is expectations and having people and companies understand that higher inflation isn't going to be allowed. And what we have in, for example, in this Philadelphia fed report here, we cost increases slowing. But the price increase is not slow. Now, yes, the October numbers were a little bit encouraging. Probably most in the PPI, but there's a big difference between having peaked because we never thought we were going to get to and

"I have another question. When you're racing, are you, how aware are you of other racers? You're aware of them at the flip turn. You're supposed to keep your eyes dead at the bottom of the pool. And why are you aware of them at the flip? Because you're forward. When you flip, so you can see the people in the other lanes. And in the 50 and the hundred yard freestyle, I wasn't really aware because it's so damn close. I mean, swimming gets you down to the millisecond. Yes, exactly. So sometimes you're aware of them when you breathe because you turn your head to breathe. So yeah, gosh. Did you ever did you ever do the butterfly? I did it in practice. It's a killer, isn't it? I don't know how they do it. We would have if we mess up. Men who do the butterfly, they're like late weightlifters. They're chiseled. But they're also super thin too. Yeah, well, there's no body fat. There's no body fat. In practice, our punishment for messing up a set. That's hilarious. What to do, ready for this? Yeah. 500 yards of butterfly. No, you're kidding. 20 laps of butterfly was your punishment. Did you have to do whatever? Oh, yeah. And you couldn't stop. This is what I'm talking about with the coaches. I mean, they would all that sadism. I mean, I got some of the coaches. 20 laps of the butterfly. That's not even done in racing. Oh, and that's just in a two hour practice. Then you have to continue practicing. And that was if you messed up. What is the chief muscle you use in the freestyle? I have no idea. Oh, you don't know? No. That's interesting. No. But I was. I tell you, I was jacked. I'm sure. Very toned. Yeah. As fun as the swimming discussion is, I have a point that I want to get back to about the resilience. Yes. Yeah. Well, it's actually a great way to go into it because I really do think that my time in swimming and water polo taught me who D resilience, nowadays, you know I reflect on a lot on why people are so weak. And I really think it's because as we've mentioned so many times in America, we've just gotten to as close to a on earth utopian place as humanly possible. Right. And I'm fascinated by this idea because I think the reason why we're so weak is that we don't think that we have to be strong. I mentioned this last podcast that I'm reading Paul Johnson's book about the history of America and how there was this understanding throughout American history that we were to carry on the torch of civilization. And now I think that there's this understanding. And by the way, I'm saying this because I actually think I had it a little bit when I was younger. That America is always going to survive. That we've reached because we've reached such a high level in so many ways. Even though the left is say that America is so bad they really know that we have reached such a great level, especially compared to other places on earth. But I think, again, we have this idea that, oh, the other generations had to go through the Civil War World War I World War II the Cold War 9 11, but we've kind of hit a steady period of our history. And now with the iPhone and all of these inventions we have, we've kind of, again, reached this part of time where we're insulated from all the other things that the world has to go through. And it's this weird false sense of permanence of our prosperity that I think is especially prevalent among people my age. So that's why we're weak. Because we have the luxury of being able to be weak. We don't think we have to be strong. There are no mountains to climb. No. We think this is our birthright. We think it's somehow guaranteed to us by virtue of being Americans. Right. That might explain, it does, I think, the weakness, because there's so few challenges. Yes. You don't even have to work in college. And anybody went to college and my parents generation worked. It was a given. But it doesn't explain you're not aiming to explain it. The leftism, the wokeness, that is from boredom. Yes, that is from boredom and too much prosperity, I think. Right. Because we'll ask people secularism. It was boredom equals leftists. Totally..

"Oh, they're all stars. Oh my God. Right. You know, by the way, you made that point to me at a phone call this week. I was just about to bring it up. Go ahead. So as I mentioned earlier, I'm reading this book a history of the American people by Paul Johnson. And about a 150 pages in, I just finished the colonial period. And I thought to myself, I'm going to read it, cover to cover. I'm not crazy, you know, colonial period is conventionally understood as the boring part of our history. And I thought, okay, something I really should know, I'm going to slog through it. I swear, I am riveted. That was the most riveting a 150 pages. I've ever read. And it hit me just how remarkably brave those Puritans and the people who went to Jamestown earlier than the Puritans in 1607, just all of the people that came to America. And of course, as we all know, they were slave owners. They were not kind to the Indians. I'm not excusing any of that. But I still think that we have to acknowledge how brave and principled those individuals were to get on a boat in the early 17th century, sail across the Atlantic to a brand new land and start this remarkable country that we have. And I was thinking that in the 17th century, 18th century 19th century and I would even say up until the first half of the 20th century, there seemed to be this understanding that we, as Americans, every generation was past the baton of civilization and they had to carry it on and continue to build this country. And that is so lost now. I don't think, again, I talked about how in school I was never told to value judgment. It was never communicated to me, no kind of sentiment that we have inherited this great country and through our conduct and our actions and the way that we treat one another. We have to continue building it. That was never expressed to us. I think that there is this understanding, especially among people my age that America has reached its peak, and that it's going to stay this way. That, oh, generations passed had to fight in all of these wars and had to kind of perfect things and develop technologies. And now we're at the place where we can kind of relax. No. Nothing is guaranteed. It's like growing a garden. Do you spend all of this time growing your garden and then ditch it and think that it will continue to bring you fruit?.

I won my entire slide and I can hear all this stuff coming off my tires. Turns out soft asphalt was sticking to all four tires on his suburban, and he wasn't alone. Yeah, I know it was an issue because it was like about at least ten to 12 cars going to the side.

Contacted D dot for information on the project and what caused the problem, all lanes may not open until at least tomorrow. Now, if you are hanging around D.C. for the 4th of July and planning on seeing the fireworks show, here's a heads up from metro rail, the folks running the system say, because of the reduced number of railcars available for service, capacity will be less than you have seen in previous independence days. So what that means is you should be ready for longer wait times, maybe up to an hour and also watch out for crowding, especially at the end of the national mall fireworks, then take place in the 9 o'clock hour. Metro transit police may temporarily keep you from going into stations experiencing excessive crowding to prevent unsafe conditions on the platforms, metro recommends maybe a delay your post fireworks travel to metro stations, if possible, and that would allow the crowds to thin out some.

And I think, okay, there's this problem. Whatever it is, maybe there's been an extra amount of levels of confession around pornography or ministering isn't getting done. Here's this problem, right?

"An ABC podcast today, doctor Paul Johnson is a Professor of medicine at the university of Melbourne, among other roles. But back in 1993, he was a young physician, working at the Fairfield infectious diseases hospital in inner Melbourne. And it was a personal connection that would set off everything that came next. Our family had just bought a holiday House in east cows in a region called silver leaves. And that's because, unfortunately, my dad died relatively young and he's leftovers sabbatical. My mom and my wife and myself got together and we bought this house as a memorial almost to him because he used to love going down there, but he only ever had the chance to rent. We weren't that well often we were kids. Cows is the main township on Philip island. A beach holiday spot two hours drive southeast of Melbourne. The island's usual claim to fame is the local population of little penguins. But this was a different story. All of a sudden, I was seeing people at the Fairfield infectious diseases hospital in the central Melbourne. Who seemed to have these rather horrible ulcers and their street addresses were quite similar or in the same area as we just bought this house. A handful of patients was presenting to the hospital with these severe skin lesions that refused to heal. These often appeared as a bull's eye wound, quite deep, red, and pustules at the center with weakens surrounding skin. Paul started to investigate these cases, more closely. I put a little group together and we started having a look around. And we found that there are clustering around the golf course, so all of the people who had cases, if you draw them on a map, they all seem to cluster around the golf course and that swampy area near the golf course. Whereas, on the other side of cows, which otherwise was similar, there was no cases at all. So it was extremely local. At the time, Paul had been searching around for a research project to sink his teeth into. And here it was. Mysterious ulcers, popping up in this one sleepy beach town. And as he soon finds out, this mysterious disease, it does have a name. Actually, it has a few. So it used to be called bean style also in Victoria. And it's been called daintree ulcer in mosman ulcer and far north Queensland. It's been called sick belong a cpac and New Guinea and the name beru also actually comes from East Africa. But the reason there are so many local names is because people realize this very local characteristic that you get it in certain places. And it's this last one that the World Health Organization would decide on as the diseases official name. Paul was going to investigate beru ulcer. And he wasn't going to do it alone. I'm Elizabeth cool ass, welcome to science friction. Are we seeing infinitesimally Mitchell for a couple more weeks? And today on the show, how a sideline research project would turn into a 25 year collaboration to figure out how brulee also functions and how it spreads. It's like a really interesting, almost murder investigation. And this Odyssey, it's really a parable for how science works. And often finding something isn't the way you thought it was, it's much more helpful. But now after a quarter century, two Melbourne scientists are getting very close to some answers. Okay, Paul, before we get into the mysteries of what we don't know, let's get into what we do know. Would you describe what it is we know about the bory ulcer and how it functions. So it's basically an environmentally acquired infection of the skin. Basically something happens to you when you go into an environment where the bacteria is and for many years it's been a mystery where it is in the environment and how you get it when you're there. And really interestingly, it seems to only take an afternoon or an hour even in what we call an endemic area to become at risk of acquiring it. And if you do acquire the infection, it can often be very hard to tell. It's got a very long incubation period. So it may be many months before you notice anything. And typically you notice a small growing thing that we call a lesion and it keeps growing. And it doesn't usually hurt too much. But it just relentlessly progresses. Over the years, doctors like Paul have pieced together the movements of people visiting endemic areas for short stretches of time. Things like going to Philip island for a day trip. And they figured out that there's usually a four or 5 month lag between assumed exposure to the bacteria, and the first presentation of an ulcer. In some cases, that can take 9 or ten months. So you've got no idea it's there, and it gives the infection heaps of time to grow. And now, if left, it can become very destructive slowly. It kind of spreads quite widely in the fat layer between the skin and the lining over the top of the muscles and the bone. So in that space between skin and the deeper structures. And also that you eventually see on the surface, which may not be there initially, is really like the middle of a donut, so you see a hole in your skin appearing, but the problem is already quite a lot bigger and gone well beyond what you can see. So what's on the surface is a kind of tip of the iceberg. It can be typically in the disease family trait, baruch also is closely related to leprosy and tuberculosis. Cases were usually found in tropical, rural areas of West African countries. Places like Ghana, Côte d’Ivoire, Benin. Left untreated, the legions can grow so be that people are left with terrible scarring or can lose the function of a limb. So when the disease presents in Victoria, it's something of a fantastic paradox as Paul puts it. Meanwhile, here we are in Victoria. We've now got one of the highest rates in the world. And we are seeing it in fully developed country in urban and suburban settings. And yet people are turning up in the winter to their doctors with a tropical disease occurring in a temperate part of the world. So that's the paradox. The reason it turns up in the winter is because of this long incubation period and people do get infected in the summer. But the fact that we've got a tropical rural disease in a temperate first world city is really interesting. In Australia, the first recorded case of beru ulcer occurred in the 1940s in bendale, a small town about 300 kilometers east of Melbourne. Not long after that, a group of Australian scientists, including sir Peter McCallum. They identify the bacterium that causes the disease. Mycobacterium ulcer or M also runs for short. They have also been small case clusters around the daintree river in far north Queensland, and some near rockhampton. But for decades, they were just a few cases each year. Then, across three years in the early 90s, 29 cases emerged around that one golf course in Phillip island. This had been an infectious disease, rare enough and dispersed enough, but no one had paid too much attention, except for a small number of dedicated researchers..

"And the fact that it was in pittsburgh you know made it in some ways all the more resonant because we were thinking about well you know what is the what is labor looked like in the united states and there's a lot of stereotypes about you know what is real work you know what is real labor but the idea that you know do university of pittsburgh faculty could be affiliated with steelworkers in some way you put those two things together in. And if that's what we're doing than steelworker doesn't just what people think it means in one sense and faculty doesn't just mean what faculty means to some people in another sense right. We have you know a faculty that are affiliated with the steelworkers and that means that we get to bargain. negotiate behave such So it's it's really kind of about the the the legacies of the steel city and also what that legacy is going to look into the future and and how you can't necessarily project things just from the past. You talked to a bit about the long road to unionization Typically a road might not be that long to union process. Did you all meet with resistance. There were some some difficulties. I mean i'll say up front. We're very excited to be on the brink of negotiating with the administration partners and we know while it was a really tough fight There's a sensitive time to move forward and work together for a better university for faculty. students staff administrators. Really everybody but we did. Have some roadblocks you know during the organizing phase in a union effort. You have to basically prove that there's interest from the faculty to have a union and that requires basically what's called a car drop where you go around. And every fa and faculty member offered cards to sign just to say i'd be interested in a union right. Not even necessarily you know a. I think we should have a union at should be this union. But we're going to have a vote and we're going to figure out whether or not we want to be a unionized faculty and so we dropped those cards in january of two thousand seventeen when we'd already been organizing for a couple of years and you know that basically that car drop a year from when the cards go to win the cards tabulate it and so at the end of that. When we got to the tabulation point there the administration and us Had a dispute over whether or not we hit our thirty percent threshold which is the threshold required to say you've showed cause for an election and each side submits names and the pennsylvania labor review board eventually evaluated the names and made a ruling and they found that universities list had a bunch of people on it who hadn't worked in a really long time or done things for pitt but hadn't necessarily been paid for those things or more like volunteers And so they found. Actually that we did clear that thirty percent threshold and could have have an election So that was a difficulty and then we also had some issues over the composition of of the bargaining unit and its size with the some Eleventh our actions as an election was about to be called over who would be be members of that and again the pl be sort of found in our favor on those questions on decided that we could go ahead with unit that that we had proposed in that eventually voted a seventy one percent in favor of of unionization. Now let's go back to something you said in the process of of unionizing In the entire process organizing One of the questions you was you know. So what kind of union do we want to be. And what do we want so let me ask. What is it you want. What is it you need. Well it's a great question and it's one that we're always in the of answering and in part because now that we're moving into the bargaining phase you know we have to start to have more conversations with folks who during the campaign had either been very aggressively neutral on the question of unionization or even posed the question musician but they're part of this unit to and so we are having ongoing right conversations with them about their view of the university their view their view of their job. What they need to do their jobs better. And you know what we all need to do. Our jobs Better but you know. I think in terms of things that folks have been talking about. You know we're looking at Lots of things that need to improve here at the university i know during the pandemic concerns over kinship and childcare had gone from you know something that was already a problem to a huge issue Folks are concerned that we're having a costs for our healthcare increase that are not being matched by the raises. That were receiving So you know locking in the benefits that the university that we have that are good and also thinking about the ways that we can compensate fox and put them in a more comfortable position so that they're not having anxiety on the day to day about you know whether you know about their job whether or not. they're going to be renewed next semester. Whether or not they're going to you know be able to make ends meet and instead let them focus on their world class task of teachers researchers a place where there's a lot of really cutting edge scientific and medical developments that are taking place like we want everybody to be able to focus on those parts of their jobs. And not worry so much about the right. Compensation and benefits side of the equation. Last question has to do with the cove nineteen moment And it has been a bit of a. Maybe an awakening certainly not yet a reckoning but an awakening in american higher ed around the at least the theory of faculty governance of universities versus a reality in the context of the the covert nineteen crisis and particularly very first hit in the spring of twenty twenty and the speed with which many university administrators were able to make a wide range of budgetary and even structural decisions about about their campuses because of the nature of the crisis And so i think there's there's been an feel free to push back on this but there's been a bit of awakening around wait a minute. Our faculty actually governing their universities. And i'm wondering if that has been raised in conversations At pitt and if so how you might see unionizing as being part of the kind of broader faculty governance question absolutely i mean from the start of the campaign you know as we have thousands of conversations with colleagues workplace democracy transparency. I wa is the administration making certain decisions that they're making And shared governance were all really important values. the that popped up in these conversations and co vid i think really underscored and amplified those as concerns because You know there were certainly right. Lots of channels through which faculty could make their opinions and perspectives known to the administration And yet the decisions that were being made by the administration Very often seemed You know to be at odds with a lot of what faculty were saying you know. Obviously kobe put everybody in a very difficult situation. But i think that there was a sense that shared governance needed to have a little more In the way of teeth. And you know there needed to be even more substance to our position as faculty and being able to make our voices heard and you know receiving even just earlier guidance and clarity about questions. Like mass in the classroom is going to be a vaccination mandate you know if there is one of the reasons for that if there isn't what are the reasons for that You know relying on the guidance that has given from right pitt has world class school of public health. So you know how's the university incorporating and responding to that kind of advice that you know is being given on the ground from experts and people were in the in frankly in the dark about a lot of that a lot of that process and why decisions were being made so there is I think certainly right. Both broadly here has been this notion. That universities are places that are dedicated to the study of democracy that are interested in furthering knowledge. And you know furthering the development of a civic arena. Where people's claims are listened to and taken really seriously and you know. Unionization is a path That that will help ensure that the claims of the faculty workers and people right need to be taken seriously by those institutions.
