Why Can't the Country Come Together?

"That people say, well, Charlie, why can't the country come together? I hear this all the time. Charlie was so divided. Everything is one side or the other. And I say it's about time. We know where everyone stands. It's about time we have some clarity. I would much rather have clarity of what the left in this country believes in stands for and what we believe in stand for than this false moderation that has been plaguing our country for 40 years. And let me be very clear what I mean by that is that for so long we have had this kind of mindset in the Republican Party where we need to sue for peace and we need to go to the middle, and they get everything they want, right? And instead what we always should have been doing is we should have been dismissing them from the beginning. He said, wait a second.

"Political causes aside individuals have committed acts of violence on capital grounds through the decades Including 1890 fatal shooting sparked by a few between a reporter and a former congressman 1998 federal shooting of two capitol police officers in 1998 By a man who claimed the U.S. was plagued by cannibalism and fictional disease There were no shootings the capitol on January 6th except by a capital police officer who blindly shot An American veteran Reeling in cold blood she wasn't armed she wasn't doing anything violent At all She was among a group of people wandering around the capitol building Some of whom we now know thanks to the forced release of some of the video were waved in by the capitol police Nobody shot any congressman as occurred in 1954 shot any senators in fact nobody has been charged with even shooting a firearm in any way at the ceiling at the floor or to make noise Nobody's been charged with using a sword Or a knife and yet that's an insurrection

Funding of the Wuhan virality, virology lab Vanity Fair, Vanity Fair is reporting that senator Rand Paul was onto something when he challenged Tony Fauci about what the NIH and American health officials knew and when they knew it about the dangerous experimentation China was doing with viruses, which led us, credence to the theory that China is a 100% responsible for this worldwide plague. This awful awful virus that has taken so many lives. All of a sudden, worse Fauci. Danielle Rand Paul and apology when Vanity Fair suggests Rand Paul was right and foushee was wrong, Fauci has spent a year and a half. Lashing out at and denying the claim.

What Does the Constitution Really Say About Freedom of Religion?

"Americans really now need to understand what does the constitution say about religion. And I remember years ago, Hillary Clinton referred to freedom of worship, and I remember chuck Coleman at the time saying, wait a minute, forget about freedom of worship. It's about freedom of religion. Freedom of worship. They have in China. You go into your little weird building on Sunday morning. Do your little weird mystical stuff. And when you come out, you bow to the secular authority of the state. That's the opposite of freedom of religion. Freedom of religion says 24 7, you can exercise your faith. You can live out your faith. You can talk about your faith. You can do things with regard to your faith. You can refuse to do things with regard to your faith. That is an incredibly broad right. And we, in America, because we've been so blessed with freedom, have really just taken our eye off the ball in terms of what it is. And so when somebody says, do something you go, oh, okay, without realizing, like, wait a minute. I am free. Well, just to be clear, let's say let's speak theoretically, right? I'll be like Arthur Miller with a Harvard Law School. He used to do these round table things on PBS or something. You need to say, well, what about in this case? What if it's the Bubonic plague? It's not COVID, which where people get a cold and they inflate the numbers and make it sound like everybody's dying. Let's say tons of people are dying in the streets. That becomes a different issue. In other words, if somebody says, hey, I don't mind spreading the Bubonic plague. You'd say, well, your religious liberty doesn't extend to that because people are dying in the streets because the science actually backs

I i've been talking in this last year the plague year about hope and about the idea that i believe that The good part of what. We've been enduring Is that many people formerly asleep or waking up. I have been a excited to see a lot of that. People who Realized when things get this bad maybe they should pay attention. Maybe they should change their opinions on things. So i have hope Do you do you have hope. Where do you see things from here. I do have hope. And i. I have a long epilogue because the book was written before two thousand twenty one but i have an epilogue and one of the things that i'm very hopeful about. Is that the traditional. Republican party is starting to metamorphasized. In other words. There were a lot of americans believe in many of its principles but for variety of rational and irrational reasons. They didn't want to be part of the party of mitt romney. For example a decent man nice guy but in their mind representation of a very elite person. That was not concerned when he gave that. Talk for example. Why can't do anything with a forty seven percent all takers and wrote off that part of it. So what i mean in particular is when you see the border crisis and then you see that mexican american communities along the borders are electing conservative representatives. Because they say that's not what we want destroying our communities or where i live in the san joaquin valley california people who are mexican american are saying. I'm not going to be taken for granted anymore. And maybe i'm going to. I'm going to vote for a republican. Because they're not the party of the golf course only

There were anxious about a lot of things but more and more students needed how more and more students were plagued with like unlimited choices unlimited.

"Learned this weekend that there are christian colleges requiring vaccine proof to attend and i thought to myself. This is christian. Overtly christian colleges by ola was mentioned. I thought what world have we entered when the basic ideas of freedom have been thrown out the window. There is so much fear. I mean again. I didn't mean to talk about covert but it's almost funny to me. People act as though it's the bubonic plague it's polio. It's something i i know. So many people who've had it and recovered quickly and yet we have christian colleges kind of participating in this because their idea of freedom doesn't seem to it just doesn't seem to reach into these things and i think that's part of the cancel cultures that people don't really have the they don't have the The american values Deepen them where they understand. We can't do this. We can't do that but it has entered the churches. I could give other examples where people are wishy washy. They don't really know what they believe. They go along to get along. I'm absolutely against vaccines. I mean i read recently. And you don't know what to believe and i haven't had a chance to research at the twelve. Thousand people have died from the vaccine. I had very very mild case of covert that a guide on on an airplane. Some when i got absolutely exhausted and ran down my immune system. But i was better in two days so now i have the immunity. You know for me. I say people can make a decision. They should have control over their own body. They ought to be able to decide. I'm concerned that the government is just imposing everything. They're using health to try to push regulations on us that before they would not have gotten away with. This is not the blue bonnet plague when it first happened. We didn't know but within a week or two we could tell it was bad but it didn't even come close to be that bad. In fact as it goes through the population the death rate is really very very small and and the people who die probably would've died.

It was as if some trans dimensional and along blocked channel beneath the known familiar sees of earth had opened suddenly into the strange waters of ultra mundane ocean's teaming with repulsive and malformed life while that goes to supernatural dimensions but at the same time still connects very much to the topic. We're going to be talking about today. Yeah oh and by the way. If some of your winning ultra mundane that just sounds like even more mundane than usual. It actually means the opposite. Ultra mundane means like from beyond the solar system. Oh i would not have known that. I threw me for a curve. at first. Because of the ultra mundane yeah man. That must be super monday.

It you know. Some kind of like slimy. Substances viscous slimy lubricating kinds of substances in the body A really some. The keystones of organic life.

And the point of the sermon. Was that Was that statement. The blood is the life in. The bible is scientifically accurate which on reflection this kind of a funny claim to make. I mean i guess that's true like if you remove all the blood from something it doesn't live anymore But but i started thinking about how the slime is the life. The mucus is life because you've got microorganisms of course that secrete uzi mucus like substances called musa lidge But you can also find that implants if you break a stalk of succulent. It will leak a viscous usage too. Yeah you. I mean we could easily do an entire podcast series if not an entire podcast period on slime. Because you look at the. I mean just look at the ways the importance of slime in the human body. You know it's it's greatly important and look at some of the the very unique creatures that utilized slime so well the hag fish for example that we've discussed numerous times a true wizard of slime sorcerer. Lose that that is able to to utilize this stick slimy substance that it exudes so wonderfully as a self defense mechanism. Yeah and the truly amazing thing about the heck fishes how much of it can create. And how fast. yeah another..

"The pigeon cure was written about in the london pharmacopoeia which was issued by the college of physicians in sixteen eighteen and it contained a remedy again with the finger quotes for the plague which involved pulling off the feathers of living pigeons and then holding their bill shut and then holding their bare but to the plague sore until they die. Nothing thought or the pigeon whichever comes first the thought was that you were transmitting. The plague from the boo boos into the pigeon. And that's why the pigeon died. That's just bad doctrine. Yeah well yeah. I got open puffy source. Let's put an animal's ass on it That doesn't make any sense. But if the pigeon died that meant that some of the plague went into the pigeon. So then you'd get a fresh pigeon you'd rip the feathers off that but you put that but right on that boo boo And then Keep doing that until Like you said one of them died. Yeah so i. If you couldn't find a pigeon you could use chickens not as highly recommended and infrequently there was also frog usage in the similar way frog usage. It was called the exploding frog cure. And so you would Put had force a frog onto the wound of the plague victim Until the frog died that was the extent of the treatment. Yeah the goal was. Hopefully the frog would explode because it would be so filled up with plague and then once once that happened the the patient wouldn't have the play any more because it had gone into that frog that doesn't does is exploded. Now yeah so. This wasn't a great method but it might have been better than living in the sewer. Now plague doctors other worst as we have discussed on many occasions at this time. The idea was that bad air caused. Yes and you know bad air by if it smells bad So if it smells bad it could be dangerous so the thought was as the plague was airborne bad air. They thought that people should live in sewers because that was also bad air and that air would combat the bad air. So it's kind of like fighting fire with fire only with stench. Fortunately i get the flu very often. But i know that when i've had the flu i can't find a comfortable position on a bed. Yeah let alone in a sewer. But who am i to judge. Sewers may have been far more comfortable in those days. Now i doubt it as you can imagine If you didn't die from the plague you probably would get some sort of weird illness from living in us. Hewer with open source. It's not a great situation. Don't don't live in the sewer. Our advice to you on the box of oddities. Don't live in a sewer especially if you have open wounds. Another thought process for curing. The plague was eating lots of fruits. Veg and eggs okay. Yeah absolutely because you want to boost your immune system by way of those minerals and vitamins right now. That's not why really because if you're eating fruits and vegetables and eggs it's that means you're not eating milk cheese and meat and that's what you want to avoid. It wasn't about what you were eating. It's about what you weren't eating. You didn't want to eat milk cheese or meat because those are the kinds of foods that if left out smell bad and that would give you the plague. See all right okay. Don't look at sick people now. This sounds funny The idea was that there were aerial spirits. You know that could invade your body through your eye holes in case you looked at the eye of someone who had the plague..

There were obviously air holes poked into the Ma- the beak to allow the doctors to breathe and their ankles were also exposed to the elements which were apparently favorite place for the infected fleas to attack. Oh it has been argued that the plague doctors actually did more harm than good during this time and that the confidence wearing this new protective may have been the cause since transmission of the disease was still not fully understood.

"I, mean to fair. The same could probably be said about old folks home so not. So, and also given the history of the island of mental hospital could only serve to ended up right. Of course, for sure one hundred percent. That's how that works sense the sarcasm. But patients at this mental hospital could have been sent here initially for all sorts of reasons from relatively benign cases like depression to more severe cases like schizophrenia or something like that. If they were insane prior to arriving on the island. They soon driven mad by the sight of the ghosts and burning, rotting, plague victims, or and hearing their whales and cries for help. Oh. These claims were dismissed as hallucinations and outbursts from an already deranged individual. However, of course, that's fucked rumors around the mental hospital state that since this was such a secluded island and hospital that it allowed immoral doctors to experiment and torture patients with lobotomies and electric shock to be their signature procedure, I actually believe that one hundred percent apparently the doctor was adamant about becoming famous for curing or figuring out why people aren't saying he used all manner of tools to perform these lobotomies such as hammer and nail. Chisels without any real basis for or how you perform them looking stuck them in the head He also had an absolute disregard for sanitary conditions or even using anesthesia on the patient. But it makes the episode of, isn't it lower? The Ice Pick? Yeah. Yeah. Doctors just fucking stuck shit in your brain. Does that happens right? Dumb. He was said to have frequently performed these procedures at the top of the Bell Tower that is still present as you can see. So, in the Nineteen Thirties, Dr supposedly went insane because he started to also see not only the ghosts plague victims invested the island, but also the ghosts of his tortured victims though I mean he kinda deserves it. Yes. So plagued by their cries for help and accusations of torture and murder he went to the top of the Bell Tower and threw off. Let's see what you did there. Thought you catch. Others.

"In terms of the scientific literature around this, they said it came from a triple reassortment of bird swine and human flu viruses for the combined with Eurasian pig flu virus. That doesn't sound gross to you I don't know what it's. Maybe it's worth referring to what worked besides quarantining in those days going through all the periods of history of people who survived often with ones who just had stronger immune systems that goes without saying a lot of people who kept themselves cleaner did a little bit better than the ones who were filthy, and there's a wealth component to that as well, but people generally had no idea. Idea until very recently of what the origin of these diseases were, and they had all kinds of theories in fact during the bubonic plague, people thought that Jupiter and Saturn had lined up in the heavens, and there was some kind of what they call them. A conjunction of the planets at that stage, and they blame that for the outbreak of the bubonic plague, which is crazy, but When you don't have any onces you jump to the next best conclusion, young man, maybe at work is maybe was stronger than the disease. Yeah I think some good ideas of come out of these plagues well when Europe was so depopulated, did kind of put a stop to a lot of stupid walls, and the big policies were forced to rebuild at home, rather than seek adventure abroad and tried to conquer territories, which they could no longer for. FOR TO KEEP IT obviously depleted the Treasury's of countries that we're collecting tax and the labor force was severely curtailed for technology to the foreign.

Of course, we've developed some scientific methods to arrest the spread of these diseases and to kill the bacteria responsible, and if it's a virus to sometimes cut down the efficacy with vaccines, but obviously what Fleming did in discovering penicillin was tremendously instrumental in helping us fight, bacterial infections, and to pasteurize things, and to be able to to clear disease out of food, which was also a major source of disease for a lot of people up to then.

"It's almost better than sports. We're back so yeah. These troops come into town. They they they intermingle with the civilian population. Everybody in fucking Zamora starts to get sick. A enough people are sick within a couple of weeks that it actually gets in the way of the town's ability to take in the harvest which of course means people start to starve. It's not a good situation. And the whole problem was exacerbated by the fact that people did not have kind of an ideal handle on virology. The experts did but normal people were still not all that far off from where normal people were during the bubonic plague. Right the doctors get this stuff. But like your average Joe doesn't and I'm going to quote from the book Pale writer again. During the first wave of the pandemic countries Inspector General of Health Martin Salazar had lamented the inability of bureaucratic and underfunded health system to prevent the disease from spreading though provincial health. Committees took their lead from his director. They had no powers of enforcement and they quickly came up against what he described as the terrible ignorance of the populace the failure to grasp for example that an infected person on the move transmit the disease. Yeah prince pig nurturance yeah. We've never seen anything like that happen again. Because we've obviously move forward so much in the last century and we can just laugh at these simple Spaniards for failing understand if I apology and isolate themselves. My God we know everything. Now look at us. We're letting history fucking repeat itself. Oh God damn over miles. I've been quarantined in a bunker since the start of March but I can guarantee one thing that would never happen. America Twenty Twenty in the midst of a plague is people gathering in mass in clubs and beaches. Well huge chunks of the country locked themselves down. That wouldn't happen because we're not. We're smarter than people. Were in one thousand nine hundred. And we haven't been systematically dismantling our education system to create people who might not really give a fuck about things out US. I don't even know what systematically dismantling means and I'm GONNA roll along to my story now. Is that instead? Sounds like now the popular liberal solution to sort of like within kind of the Intelligencia the kind of like more secular sort of people in the cities and Spain. Their solution to the plague Was what they called. A sanitary dictatorship a strict program of quarantine imposed from the top down to stop the spread of the illness on all costs in dutifully the newspapers of Zamora tried to explain the benefits of this system to the people but I had to explain very basic facts about contagion to their readers including the fact that the disease did not develop spontaneously as a result of God being angry. At you and a lot of again this is nineteen eighteen. A lot of local doctors weren't helpful in spreading the real news. I'm going to quote again from Pale. Rider one Luis Ibarra suggested imprint. That the disease was the result of buildup of impurities in the blood do sexual incontinence a variation on the medieval idea that immoderate luxury could trigger a hugh moral imbalance. So this guy is like nice little fucking too much. That's what makes you fucked too much. God gets angry at you and goes into your blood as we all know. And so the more Donna Moylan of you in the plague and that's how it works. Well they tell you what they tell you what that. It's not God that's angry. Who told you that scientist is your comment? You know what I bet. That person doesn't come come. D- I it's such a fucking no saying it right now. Dr Louis C. Bar. I'd never came not once. Yeah I like that. That's the first myth like they have to take down as like a like a press or like just to like the experts. All right. I know this flu is going around. It's really gnarly and the question on everyone's mind is is it. God that super angry at us. And that's what's happening and we gotta say no that's not what it is and it just feels like a very heavy thing to have to lay on people. Yeah God's not pissed it you but you're still dying and here's what we have to do right. Yeah I guess there's probably isn't extent to which a lot of people found it more comfortable to believe that God God was kind of drunken angry again as opposed to like. Oh No actually this thing that we're going to be dealing with probably forever where sometimes horrible viruses creep up somewhere in the world and kill people all over the planet and this is this is just the way it is and there is no reason to it Yeah so the good news is that the actual government of Zamora listened to the experts the experts who weren't idiots at least and announced a ban on large gatherings until further notice. Now we in the USA are well familiar with our country. People reacted when this started to happen. and the same things occurred in. Zamora only instead of drunk college kids on spring break the culprit was the bishop of Zamora. And I'm going to quote again from the book..

"According to the scapegoating theory members of a majority experiencing negative shocks settled on a specific target to blame for their problems and other potential mechanism determining the likelihood of persecution focuses on the extent of economic complimentarities so the ability to which they are economically intermingled between the majority and the minority. This thesis argues that patterns of economic complementarity substitute ability to determine the ability of two groups to coexist when the economic activities of the two groups complement. Each other shocks may lead the majority to protect the minority because of its economic value. So that's a bummer. That like what protected communities from. I mean there's two ways to view it either. The Solis is like oh no purely when people think that they have a financial benefits from not murdering each other. They don't murder each other. That's the bomber where it's like. Oh God our only solution is more capitalism. The other way to look at is just that like no when when two different groups when a minority group becomes intermingled with majority and they all become economically tied. They get to know each other. They shop at each other stores and they don't and they're like. Oh No I know these people. They're part of my community. I'm not gonNA murder them and I see that they have. There's we have value that we offer each other and at all it's not just like who the fuck are these people? Yes can you can interpret this in an optimistic view of human nature or a pessimistic view of human nature and it needs well into either. You know I wonder if it would be something like well. You know once. There's robots to do just going to be limited right. That's that's my solution that that motive seems a little bit of far for years now miles every time we've hung out. I've said if there weren't robots I'd be murdering you. I never really thought about why I was saying. But yeah super funny and then now that you said this I'm starting anyway. Yeah we we can explore that later So yeah it's cool stuff anyway. There's a lot of the black plague of armor and and we're going to move on from the black places And the question of whether or not genocide is inevitable or if it's only avoidable with economic complementarity whatever we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA move on from that complicated topic of discussions to talk about something fun.

We don't know where it came from. Some people say somewhere in Asia and people say somewhere in Eastern Europe. There's actually a really good chance it started in Kansas. And if like some people tracing it back think that it actually did it start in Kansas. Yeah if the Spanish flu originated from Kansas.

"The our best scenes. Okay and we're back and we're talking about flagellants. So flagellants are men who believed that they were ordained by God to Redeem Society by recreating the suffering of Christ on their own bodies. And because I don't know if you've ever tried to crucify yourself miles I can say from experience. It's not easy. There's a lot of. There's a lot of like really do unexpected challenges in the Self crucifixion process. Yeah I mean I would only maybe only metaphorically emotionally have I engaged in crucifixion. I mean I do that all the time whenever someone gets angry at me because I'm say swinging a machete around it wounds. Someone I put my arms out to my side in the manner of Christ to to portray the fact that I have become a Christ figure. I'm taking The sense of the world onto my own body. I find that works out really. Well with people They tend to respond to that. Guess it depends on my mood. Yeah but flagellants are doing this in a much more direct way. They're they're just beating the shit out of themselves and I'm going to quote from what I would say. Generally positive right up from the Christian History Institute because I find it interesting to go to these groups sometimes to find their write ups on things. So here's other Christian. History Institute describes flagellants stripped to the waist beating themselves with leather whips tipped with iron spikes until the blood flowed groups of two hundred three hundred and sometimes up to a thousand march from city to city. They begged Christ and Mary for pity and townspeople sobbed and groaned and sympathy. They performed three times a day twice publicly in the Church Square and once in private. They were organized under a lay master for usually thirty three and a half days to represent. Christ's years on earth they pledged self support in obedience to the master that were not allowed to bathe. Shave changed clothes. Sleep in beds talk or have intercourse with women without the master's permission. So you see we're going through here is like we start with a Catholic churches. Response these processions which are a horrible thing to do. And then we move onto the flagellants which are like even. Were even worse at social distancing. Now that is to sort of like King show like alive king show road yeah shows and the public do Santa Basic Self Whipping. Get off and then we'll where we really get. The money is the private shows we do at night. Now if you WANNA get in there will do some weird shit the lame aster will let us fuck if we need to whatever you know. Check it out. It's a sound like a weird racket. It's it's it's almost like it's an experiment to see how you can spread the plague most efficiently. So now you have people who don't Bay for weeks on end and beat themselves bloody every day wondering through town and they're not just being watched by people sick children are brought to them for healing if the plauged spreads to the flatulence of the flagellants have the plague spreads to the kids and their families.

So the fledgling bad thing here in terms of this objectively spread the plague Shitload of people but again they're not monsters like there's no one with like good advice really being like this is a bad idea. And here's the evidence as to why like I mean you could. I'm sure there were people who recognize that like this really seen. It seems like we get a lot more play cases once the flagellants came in. But like we're not doing so hot at science in this era you can't right. They're not trying to be irresponsible. It's a nonsense time. They thought God had just started murdering all of them and they reacted with panic. But also in a way that like I can't call a monsters for doing it. Yeah if we're looking for the greatest evil committed by Christendom in the play gears it's actually something that occurs kind of separate from the organized chunks of the Catholic Church or at least separate from what the Church wanted in that period. Seton folks suffering through the worst of the plague years notice that Jewish people did not seem to suffer as badly from the creeping death. And there's a number of theories for this. It probably boils down to the fact that number one Jewish people bathed regularly in the Middle Ages and Christians really didn't so depending only PM and yeah that's still like maybe like once a week or once a month or something like they're not but bathing but bathing suits and other people are just like no. You just put on new clothes over yourself. And they also washed the bodies of their dead before burial since the plague is spread heavily by like Fuck and fleas and stuff. Like this helps right. It reduces the the they don't get it as much as Christians. I'm and they also aren't attending. These giant marches through the city. They're not hanging around near round near the the the flatulence they're doing their own thing in their own neighborhoods. While Christians and Christian parts of town are rubbing the blood of whip-wielding transients into there is so. It's not hard to see why Jewish people don't get it quite as much and still a lot of them die of the plague. Don't get me wrong. But they people notice that Jewish communities aren't being hit by this as hard as the Christian wants and kind of recognize. Maybe we should start bathing and stop hanging out with these people know Christian started engaging in a series of unspeakably violent pogroms and in fact some scholars will call this the first Holocaust and we will. We will never even have a vague idea of the total death toll but the individual massacres we know about we're horrific in one Valentine's Day in Strasburg Germany. Two Thousand Jewish people were burnt to death Three thousand Jews were massacred in a couple of days. In the ghetto of Mainz Jews were massacred in Spain and France and the Balkans and basically everywhere but chunks of Poland because the king of Poland at the time had a Jewish mistress and so he was chill. Yeah he was like wait a minute. This is great for me so don't worry about it. I'm mostly just kind of I'm still thinking about the bathing part where the Christians culturally where so much dirtier Them the old clean people that don't get sick. They must be involved in some kind of dark shit or whatever and then I the idea of yet. What don't know like the complexion of a person who has not bathed in however long you'd naturally interact with a bathing situation. What that's like if it's like a scratcher that you'd get at a liquor store like you'd reveal a whole other thing on you. Get you get holier. The longer you go without bathing the more God loves you dammit. Gods God's got into some Kinky shit miles he's really into that like You Know God's favorite pornography is actually a old episodes of peanuts and that character pigpen. Now this has gone too far this guy further than it ought to hell. Yeah Yeah Yeah Where are you going with that buddy? You WanNa you WANNA finish that there is. I didn't want to lead this into like child porn territory so let's go back to antisemitism so now in trying to parse out the Catholic church is guilt in this. The Catholic church is guilty of a taunt an absolute ask float of antisemitism over the centuries and they definitely seated communities around Europe with a lot of us in reinforced it and they're Catholic churches with like stained glass reliefs Jewish people killing Christian children. That are around to this day. There were even more of them back. Then there's absolutely a significant level of guilt that goes into the Catholic Church in terms of inculcating these enough of these beliefs in people that they were there when the plague hit and that had an impact on the massacre but when it comes to what they actually did during the plague when Jewish people started getting murdered. They didn't they didn't encourage this shit quite the opposite in fact Pope Clement the sixth released. Two Papal Bulls during the plague one and thirteen forty eight and papal bulls. Were kind of like the presidential tweets of the day like this is Pope Clement and like getting up and hopping on the twitter the first of his Papal Bulls condemned people who attacked Jews for spreading the plague an specifically stated that Christians. Who did this had been seduced by that liar? The Devil in his second. Papal Bull Pope Clement said it cannot be true that the Jews by such a heinous crime are the cause or occasion of the plague because through many parts of the world the same play by the hidden judgement of God has afflicted afflict the Jews themselves in many other races. Who have never lived alongside them which is actually like a really reasonable like scientifically backed reason for saying this like he's actually very he handles this. Vat as well as you can expect. I guess that's me more. It shows like level of thinking where it's and fucking light bursting out of your skull you're like hold on. Let's look around everybody's getting it. Everybody's getting it. Maybe that's not fair cities without any Jewish. People are getting to you can't you? Clearly this can't be their fault. Hey Love my one. I WANNA blame him as much as you guys do. Trust me I do. I'm the Pope I want. It would be great if we could. Well blaming people huge about blame. I would love to scapegoat but I'm just this once tough. This is this this go dead. I I will say it's interesting that the initial response of the pope thirteen forty nine was arguably based in sounder science than the first responses of the president of the United States in two thousand twenty two our own play clements reasoning is more solid. What trump was dropping So there you go your own. You're getting owned from centuries in the clip. The sixth I would say response to this about as well as you could have possibly hoped but also a lot of people ignore him millions of people and there's also obviously there's individual Catholic priests individual churches who don't follow it like but people in general don't follow glitter. Some people aren't on twitter. Just an yeah. Tens of thousands of Jews die horribly during the plague from violence and the explanation. You'll hear most often for why these people were killed. Is that ignorant? Christians assume that the Jews were poisoning them all as part of some sort of like white genocide scheme. And you had this is this is something. The church does deserve some credit for because they spread the rumor that rabbi sacrifice Christian children for centuries but it's more complicated than that even more recent research into the eradication of Jewish communities in Europe during the plague suggests that what happened actually has fairly little to with the actual damage done by the plague in other words. The places where Jewish people weren't killed weren't necessarily the places that suffered most from the plague. It wasn't oh a bunch of died from the plague and now we're angry and we need a scapegoat to be violent towards. It's actually not. That doesn't seem to be what really happened. And I'M GONNA quote now from a paper put up at the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University at an aggregate level. We've found that. Scapegoating led to an increase in the baseline probability of persecution however at the city level locations which experienced higher plague mortality rates. Were less likely to engage in persecutions. Furthermore persecutions were more likely in cities with a history of Anti Semitism consistent with scapegoating and less likely in cities were Jews played an important economic role. This gels with longstanding findings in the field of genocide studies essentially. What you're seeing. Is that like the towns that people hated Jews. The most before the plague took the opportunity to murder a bunch of Jewish people the towns that suffered the worst from the plague. If they didn't have as much of a history from antisemitism they didn't find themselves driven to suddenly start killing Jewish people right. It was folks who just kind of took the opportunity and one of the things that seem to be. Most protective of Jewish people during this time was the cities in which they were kind of most economically integrated in this. This brings us to a real fucking bomber in the field of genocide studies. And it I I mean it seems like a given late. Yeah I wanNA tell you like the really the coolest thing. The most fun thing about genocide studies like. I don't know if that's ever sentence someone's going to say so. Thank you though for preparing me. I consider this one of the least fun. Things about genocide studies even though is kind of explaining why genocides don't happen in some places quote..

"plague" Discussed on Behind the Bastards

"Yeah it's like John Wayne Gracie accidentally runs over a cat. That's the Catholic Church in this specific. It's it's like So the the church's first reaction to the outbreak of plague in Europe authorized by the pope was to hold mass processions through the great cities of Europe. Now again they couldn't have known. This was a bad idea. But this is a terrible terrible call and it came out of a long standing tradition called Rogue Gatien days which were enormous multiday processions held by the Church to quote sate. God's desire for Penitence Roy. Yes God pissed and you got a march through. God's always angry at you and you gotta like the ancient Catholic Church. If any of you had parents who had anger management problems or substance abuse issues and they come home like really pissed off. And it's like everybody's job has to be to calm down. You know mom or dad. Or whoever I'm guessing. A lot of people listening have had that experience. That's kind of the general attitude towards the Catholic Church like something bad is happening. We've got all like fucking the church. God is home drunk and we need to like show him out. Yeah that's very much. The attitude kind of everyone has towards God in Europe and so they start these mass exhibitions of faith to honor specific saints And it also kind of gives you know it it it it kind of helps reinforce the power of the church in Rome So yeah as one historian wrote it is little wonder then that one of the first actions of the church upon the rival the play was to call special civic masses and processions thought to be useful in quelling the divine rage and sparking repentance in the people and in some cities. These processions lasted as long as three days. And we're attended by thousands of people. Penitence went barefoot and wore sackcloth. They each other in ashes. Wept prayed out their hair and waved candles. They stumbled through city streets. You may recognize this. All is very bad social distancing. This is not recommended plate. Chela in. Yes yes yeah. It's exactly it's like all right. Let's let's let's fuck in spring break everywhere but with hair tearing here tearing. That's yeah and you know that. Sure hair tearing though isn't like a fun. Calm thing you can say like hair tearing like you have to really envision what's happening there. People pay screaming crying seeing just get tearing. Yeah land on your hair right now and just kind of feel how deep it's in there. Oh Yeah I imagine. Having a list of things where hair tearing is probably towards the top and started the bi. Okay screaming right like sobbing right like crying great Like punching sure you have to get through a lot of shit before you're like yet hair. Yeah pull my own fucking hair out my hair out. It is one of those things like Like tarring and feathering where You know we just kind of gets like Oh yeah. People used to get tarred and feathered. That's your was a thing but it's like no. No people. Were pouring boiling pitch on each other people. Read anything it it killed in a fucking like Disney Channel. Show where the kids do a gag where it's like feather room with you. Yeah it's not. It's not really glue you know. The they're only glue was like as hot as the coffee that burned that woman so bad. She needed to be hospitalized. Because McDonald's anywhere I this is yeah. Let's roll obviously. All these processions spread the bubonic plague fucking everywhere right like of course but you know you can't really the church didn't know what they were doing. And the for a little bit of fairness the best data we have which is also very imperfect and none of it is numerical data but the best data we have suggests that non-catholic parts of the world suffered pretty similar death rates to the Catholic parts of the world. So like probably because kind of everyone's reaction was to do similar things when this starts to happen it's just the unknown horrible thing you know. And if we're going to be really fair to the Church we should also note that priests and nuns probably died at a significantly higher rate than the rest of the population because they spend a lot of time ministering to the sick and dying his book the Great Mortality John Kelly the the historian not the not the trump guy points out that forty to forty five percent of all of the clergy in Europe died during the plague so half of all the priests half of all the nuns half of everyone who works in the church which is again you're only international organization effectively in this period. Half of them are fucking gone. And that's compared to thirty percent of the general populace and this has a permanent long-term effect on on the Church in Rome and I'm going to quote from a write up in medieval lists dot net because so many were ill and so few priest remained as the disease progressed. Limit the sixth. Who was the pope at the time declared that the dying could make their confession to anyone present even to a woman set an English bishop and that it would still lead to Salvation Ya. This was a big deal for the churches. Previously only clergy were permitted to perform last rites. Barbara Tuchman writes in a distant mirror. The climate is fourteenth century Clement. Sixth found it necessary to grant remission of sin to all who died of the plague because so many were unattended by priests. The Prese doing what they could but they were paying with their lives. So this is one of those situations where the Catholic church isn't really to blame for what happens during this period but really Fox them over and you could honestly a lot of historians look at this as like the beginning of the end for church power and the way that it had been just because like all of their best priests the most dedicated the most connected to the community. All fucking die in the only priests left are like the shittiest the ones who believe the lease the ones who are willing to hide from the plague scumbags yeah and that has a long term impact so right yeah yeah so Regular people because there's suddenly less prese less nuns no one doing last rites feel like the churches abandoned them through the crisis even though it actually probably did more than almost anything to reduce the spread of the disease that now priests who had been exposed to the plague were wandering around touching people anymore. You don't WanNa be yeah But people don't see it that way they see is the church Abandoning them In in so yeah. It's pretty cool thing that happens in this period of time and it's hard to take any kind of lesson from this 'cause like bad that the Catholic church loss but it's like messed up after all the genocide and torture the thing that like really starts to fuck them over is too many compassionate priests trying to minister to the sick but also those compassionate priests were the one spreading the plague. The most so. It's like there's no less than a lot of time history to shit. Yeah Right. Wouldn't it just filtered out all the fucking Shitty guys? Yeah yeah there's there's like the bits of history like studying the rise of the Nazis where it's like. Oh yeah there's a lot of really direct and critical lessons here and then their stuff where it's like fuck. I don't even know what you're supposed to learn from this because you're completely in a different reality. Yeah really different set of Shit. That happened wild like yeah. Yeah and it's worth noting that religion itself didn't decline during this period just people whose faith in the church. The dead priests in the disease bearing possessions of old were replaced by something that spread justice much disease but that wasn't directly connected to the power of the Catholic. Church was in fact even weirder. And we're GonNa talk now about flagellants. Do you know what flagellants are miles like when you self whip. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's that's the basic idea. I am very excited to talk to you about whipping yourself. But you know what's a lot like beating yourself bloody with an iron tipped whip no tell me capitalism. Yeah here's some ads..

"plague" Discussed on Behind the Bastards

"Hello everyone this is behind the bastards and I'm here to podcast on the Internet. That's most of what I wanted to get across anything else. So okay good now today. We're talking with my friend Mr Miles. Great Miles how are you? How are you doing in Florentine? Oh my God help me Robert. You're not you're not doing great. I'm I'm fine relatively speaking. I'm I'm getting used to a new way of living to put it mildly But you know it's taking a lot. I'm actually learning a lot about myself through this quarantine and I'm trying to use that part to be empowering rather than fucking frightening. Well we're all learning a lot during this new period of Corentin and some of the people who are learning the most are America's religious leaders particularly the leaders of large churches that make their money by having a lot of people Cram in the door every Sunday and drop out donations Yeah and today miles. We're GonNa talk about how organized religion Historically response to plagues. And that's going to be a fun topic for you to discuss. Are you big fan of plagues or organized religion? I'm plagues not as much not as much as I used to be the plagues of around twenty twelve when that. League Inc came out and I was just fucking the laughing my ass off and Mike Him. The London Olympics get ready for global spread anyway but organized religion. I went to Lutheran school until eighth grade and then I went to Catholic high school so I know a little bit about All sides of the crucifix of the Crucifix Interest Because Religion. Yeah that makes sense okay. Let's let's let's let's let's let's shove our intellectual pro boss guy into this subject and excrete saliva in order to dissolve it so that we can suck it back up and gain nourishment. Wow who were flying insect. Is that a fly. Okay yeah the Squirt Goo out and it. It dissolves stuff and then they suck it back up pretty sure. That's how flies work can you now? This is the natural extension of knowing that is. Can you make a big barrel of whatever they spit out and just kill somebody with that Probably not I mean maybe if the flies are carrying disease but they aren't always have to take so. Yeah you need a lot of flies. You need a lot of flies now. Miles outside of your plans to murder people with flies. Let's talk about. Let's get into the subject so on a video posted in early February two thousand eighteen Texas Evangelical Preacher and member of Donald Trump's faith advisory council Gloria Copeland said this to her parishioners in a facebook live video. And I I WANNA I wanNA have you played that and play the start to about a minute and four seconds. Well listen partners. We don't have a flu season. We've gotTA duck season the deer season. But we don't have a flu season and don't receive it when somebody threatens you with everybody's getting the flu we've already had our shot. He bore our sicknesses and carried our dizzy and by his stripes. We were healed. If you've already got the flu pro for you right now. Father are pro for every person that has symptoms of flu on this. Can You lord where you're supernatural power to heal them now to the soles of their feet flew a mind you off of the people? Jesus Jesus himself gave us the flu shot. He redeemed us from the curse of flu. And we receive it and we take it and we are hailed by his drops. I'm in you know. The Bible says he himself bore our sicknesses and carried our diseases and by his style. We weren't goodness yeah. That's pretty great. Isn't it wou- he added Dude. Her energy is like someone at a bar who has been lying about everything they've been telling you the whole time ultimately trying to get free drinks. Zak Yeah you know because basically like the way I look at it as everybody's blessing the how like it's just very fast very smooth but she sounds a fucked up though to in a weird way like yes she does sound like she's she's she's doing all of this to like get you to give her a pack of cigarettes. You know all that to say Manhattan You know you wanNA shot but you know the people who do that. Get a lot of free shots and a lot of cigarettes in a lot of money and is now advising president. Donald Trump. Yeah it's it's pretty cool. Gloria in that video went on to note that G. P. Listener should just keep saying. I'll never have the flu. I'll never have the flu. Inoculate yourself with the word of God Flu. I bind you off of the people in the name of Jesus on no. It's good style. Yeah I mean again that was February of two thousand eighteen miles and that year's flu season was according to the CDC responsible for more hospitalizations than any previous season in the CDC's records and the fact that Copeland had the ear of the president will she was advising her more than a million listeners. To not get flu shots may have had an impact on why that season was so bad in. May also have been a message of things to come as I write this March of twenty twenty We are well actually. Yeah I wrote this in March. It's now April but we're at a place where the president very recently voiced his desire to reopen the country. Well before medical officials advised to do so so that he could have it open in time for Easter. It looks like we've moved past that particular bad idea but my guy it was like right on the fucking edge there for a little while. I don't even so yeah I mean I get it. That would have been great. Medically would've been awesome. Life would have been while everyone was dying around me. I would have at least been able to like envision. The scene in the movie made seventy years later. We're like they film a bunch of to like I increasingly unsettling music builds as all these different congregants violin and shake each other's hands. And Yeah you could you. Could you could make that that. That four minutes scene is amazing. And then switch to the mass graves. You know I mean it'd be a great though where Jesus capitalist Christ You Know is being crucified by Kovic. Nineteen right now and then resurrected on Easter to come back with massive sales with thirty percent. Off some of your most favorite items. Yeah yes and you know. Speaking of capitalist Jesus Christ Yeah so I wound up like interested in all this and I went down this rabbit hole digging into the reactions specifically Christian churches to horrible plagues all throughout history I as a little bit of a a I don't know oh a content warning here This whole episode is just because I was drunk at on Google at midnight a couple of days ago and now the script exists. So you're it's just going to have to It's going to happen to you now. Miles and there's no there's no escaping it so we'll start with the black plague because it killed about a third of the world and it's like you know kind of gold standard of plagues you know a if we're comparing plagues to like terrorist manifestos. It's like the plague equivalent of the Unabomber's book. It's like it's like the top of the fucking pillar you know. What is this album's as in terms of albums I mean depends on your taste but for you? What's album to you? Think I think the? Who's Tommy is the greatest album of all time so I would say the black plague is the Tommy of plagues. Wow Okay I like that. I learned to right. Now thank you. Yeah so Most of our media tends to focus on the damage the plagued in mediaeval Europe and it fucked medieval Europe up. Pretty Bad But the play actually started off somewhere in the east We don't really know where exactly and it was equally devastating in Asia in the Middle East and one of the first sources we have for the black plague was Abu Hafs Omar Bin Awadhi a Muslim scholar himself died of the black plague of thirteen forty nine and he claimed its origin was somewhere in China. Which at that point was a much vaguer term than it is today and he described that in the Near East quote sat like a king on a throne and swayed with power killing daily one thousand or more and decimating the population. Which is a a sentiment? Now that we're losing thousand Americans a day to this. That reminds me more and more if the president of the country. Yeah you hate when history. Is that thing of like showing backup like I was done so this is the black plague rolled probably spread along the Silk Road through travel in transit and the major arteries of those two things at the time And Yeah by thirteen forty nine. It was edited. Limburg Germany where one chronicler wrote. There came a great death in Germany. That is called the first great death and they died by the dozen and when that began on the third day. They died in. Limburg. More than twenty. Four hundred people died not counting the children because we didn't really count the children back in the day. Like what would we give a shit like fuck that noise? How do you what the fuck was going on back? Then when they're doing body counts like I'm Jeremy Irons for no reason. Yeah Yeah like. There's kids are just dropping left and right back in the day so until somebody was like fifteen. They're not even real babies who gives a shit. Expectations are low. Yeah once I'm like adults start dropping. Then it's like okay. Now we're losing right those little those little screaming. Short people are all quiet. But now there's not as many people to go work the field. Something might be wrong. Yeah if you can't work you don't count. Yeah yeah it was kind of the attitude now at this point in history? If you were a Christian you know there. There's no Protestant game in town right. It was just like Orthodox Christianity and Catholicism like that was it for you and since you know Orthodox Christianity and Catholicism the the Christian religions in town and the church in Rome was the wealthiest government in Europe and probably the most powerful government in Europe. the church was kind of on deck to take action when this horrible plagues starts killing. Everybody like there's not really much in the way of organization or Unity Pan European when the plague hits the Church is the closest thing you have. You know it's your CD at the time and it was great it being the CDC. I can imagine what that is. Like Sci who not our strong suit now to give to give them a little bit of credit. It wasn't anyone strong suit at the time. Like it's not like the doctors had a great handle on germ theory in the thirteen forty. So no one really knew what to do So this will actually be the first. The only part in the story were like the church isn't taking any they're taking actions that are endangering and killing huge numbers of people but they don't mean to be you know Like they couldn't really known how this was all going to work. It's not really. Yeah there's a lot to play with like dynamite or something you're like. Oh you don't like a toy I I don't know because like the Catholic church is a horror has done a lot of horrible horrible things up to this point in history. It's more like it's more like a serial killer accidentally backing over a puppy. Were like that doesn't really like if you're trying to like list that person's crimes like well they didn't mean to hit the puppy thing that happened because they that thing that just happened on their resumes towards the bottom really..

"plague" Discussed on KFI AM 640

"Plague or some other epidemic would break out we are the big ones like a blacked out from the fourteenth century was killed tens to hundreds of millions of Europeans are because many of the third of the entire continent you know we've seen numbers of Spanish flu pandemic of nineteen eighteen which you know the top us look through a hundred million people but really you know up until we had antibiotics vaccines things like that modern sanitation simply it was only a matter of time before some kind of epidemic would break out check human population and the fact that you know we actually were able to stop that for the most part is what enabled the world we have now the fact we can travel around the world the fact we have as many people as we can in a city like New York but at eight million nine million people that wouldn't be possible without being elected mostly oldest check when that happens when we get a new one we haven't seen before we see what happens which really brings total destruction about that wait wait until we can figure out some way to really stop it you were living in Hong Kong during one epidemic that broke out and that there were attempts to contain it and it with mixed results that you have seen multiple attempts to deal with the different viruses that have spread over the over the years in your career as a journalist could you address in general terms that will get more specific about how governments get tend to respond how the Chinese are in Hong Kong officials how they responded to some of the outbreaks that that you witnessed it always seems to sort of come in the same way there's always a sort of a denial of them but generally speaking tend but tend to happen in China especially now with the case in stores and bottles are similar sort of beginning in both those cases where you know it actually began stars began at southern trying to cross the border on call and there was attempts to hush up if we didn't really know what was happening fully until someone brought across the border to Hong Kong which you know is a globally connected city work third numbered modern doctors and that's where it begins as we get the actual response in full and at that point you do your best to continue without a fight with her might have it sure quarantine or isolate them you look at how it might be spreading in the case of sars because it didn't it all else we didn't hurt the very people they felt around the world what the world alternately you're able to treat everyone had able to contain it people to sort of figure out how to make it not spread in hospitals often occurs and selectively stuff about there are no stars thank you have a very similar beginning there with temperatures posh up I think definitely important attorneys but you can't pass up something to get the biggest that amounts will be C. at about mid January where so they're gonna reports of thousands of people for comments from the Spanish government of the one eighty essentially starts putting everyone in the in the city on the problems with a another grisly around our country and the fact that didn't work you know tells you how tough those viruses to contain but you know there's always that sort of unwillingness to really take this seriously and you know whether it's because you're worried about the effect of the economy we were in a public panic you worried about your reputation as a leader and you know what we see is that with something as a contagious is this it doesn't matter if I can respect your desire which would go where you actually have to deal with that square which is what I think we're all trying to do not with the grief process well the issue of transparency is central to what's going on now what's happened before the lack of it I guess you know a lot eyes looking at China for how they've handled this if we've even seen a couple law firms in the U. S. file lawsuits are going to go after China for not being straight up with us and not containing it not telling the truth and you know there are a lot of factors that go into that political rivalries economic rivalries of fear of how how the rest of the world I guess would react but transparency would be one less and we should be able to learn from this you need to be honest with your own people and with the world wants one of these things breaks out absolutely no I think we definitely larger we should know about before is that this is a truly a problem or if you can jump on it quickly you can she usually minimize the damage that you have to but what happened you know if if in some ways we doubled we've been able to contain this is the source of Chinese because it will contain the supposed source you wouldn't have organised a watering the dollars in economic damages thousands of lives lost or does somebody by the end of this and you know ideally transparency politico generally and that means accepting that these things happen but that you can take steps to stop them you know we can also look into is there a better way to be looking for these things as they come out you know it's probably impossible to stop them from starting just the nature of human animal interactions such but if we're much better it's almost like a sort of the same way we have a consulting service look for threats security threats these are biological threats and we should be good all the time and we should look for them around the world all countries should Google connected in this work and then we should try to step into the soonest possible but that really not the case here even though again you know this is amazingly predictable you know it's even the nature of this virus under the new HMO sort of pandemic simulation about four months before this happened and you know it's moving out tomorrow was also a corona virus like particle bid nineteen virus and spread in much the same way and so we we can't say we didn't know this was coming and it's disappointing to see really what happened you have you been in these Asian meat markets that have been described for all these species are jammed together with all kinds of people but yeah I have you know you know in Hong Kong actually before start they were still somewhat common you know it was an unusual talent ally chicken and other prepared I was for the people there eventually after stars the unlimited most of those clean those up and I have been there you have it you know it's it's you couldn't imagine a better place for us to come out of your mouth and all these different species close together you know it's not the sort of which three circular you think what you're seeing fluids like that you know and that's frankly another lesson that should definitely take from us but these should be closed down there and I understand there's been a cultural reasons for why they want to discard their particular also by the way you know a major driver of employment data animals and extensions because often the rare animals that are being brought into this things like that you know so this is something I I would hope when this is all said and done you know that the governments in China and elsewhere take steps to really just eliminate that we we just can't afford it any longer can help the user and the kind of modern reflections on we want would you guess that the closure of these meat markets that we've heard about in China and Vietnam would hold that the the rules stick after this thing is over I hope so you know I'm sorry you know it's it's it's hard to say because we've we've seen sort of efforts difficult for them to kind of backtrack but I I definitely hope so you know you can have changed over time with this is definitely less popular than it used to be you know as as sort of suppose more months ago markets come and things like that but I think you know certainly the Chinese government is capable of pulling off if the center button once they can make that happen elsewhere in Asia a little concerned so Jack I think it can't happen I think if that is the case that would go a long way towards reducing this risk somewhat but of course you details were touring with the notable Oregon and and for that matter which appeared in which came out of Africa it was let the market there has to be hunting in rural areas and get out that way so it was always it's been very difficult to eliminate the chance of this ever happening but certainly could take steps like that to make it less likely we're talking with journalist Brian Walsh author of the book end times brief guide to the end of the world about the the threat of pandemic so what we can learn from coke with nineteen.

"It was also cut into food supply. And if the diseases cross into humans could kill everyone. Cowpox or mad cow pox came from all of the purpose. Big bad diseases all cross to humans from livestock, which is our diseases killed people in the Americas. Isn't he Ed evolved to defend against that? They're yeah. Can we go warfare? We're so good at it. The Halen locus would destroy all the crops. Yeah. Hale is doing out of your carriage. Oh, yeah. Hail is still a huge concern. Around cutting time, prolonged darkness is also would be evidence of volcanic activity that could threaten crops if it's dark enough dark long enough. It will definitely affect the crops. Right. And I think venomous creatures in the dead babies is pretty obvious as though that's bad. But any of these plagues by themselves could cause the collapse of civilization. Oh, yeah. I mean by definition, that's what plagues are literally overkill it is overkill overkill. It's a plague is something bad that happens. It can destroy society. The biblical plagues is Egypt would not exist after going through that many plagues, I know you throughout the volcano. But that's a theory. That's out there, isn't that a lot of these are the Retailing's of volcanic activity in the area. And then it's just put it in a different order. Right. Well, like you've got the in the eighteen hundreds. There was the year without a summer. Which was one of the inspirations for creating the New York subway system when there was a blizzard on the fourth of July shut down the city allow people starved because it was snowing all summer long there weren't crops that year. Yeah. That was in the eighteen hundreds. You've got the the bubonic plague that wiped out a third of Europe's population the diseases brought to the new world killing ninety percent of the population of the indigenous peoples the potato famine most famous for Ireland, but it hit all of Europe where Ireland just had the most potato heavy diet. Yeah. And if you read any pioneer story, you're gonna get stories of locus blacking out the sky, stripping the fields bear, right? And the people having to move on or they'll die. That's also. Because that's part of the a locus a natural life cycle that just is like this catos, there's Mormon crickets crickets. Oh my gosh. Man. When those things come out in the summer, and you're you're driving down that like desert road mad. They starts discuss you slide. Yeah. Think they're ugly. So these plagues. You know, these are all of the scariest things that an ancient person would think about right. So perfect for storyteller right into this are the most worst terrible things. Yeah. Which will segue. Nicely into our first news story. The holiest site in Islam is being plagued by swarms of locus now currently yes, thirty thousand black grasshoppers to be precise. Wow. And I predict that Christians will call this God's judgement on Islam. Iran will call it. God's judgment on Saudi Arabia and Sunni Muslims. We'll call it insect migration. Yeah. It's insect migration. Right. Yeah..
