"You. Know what it's not is the funny thing like. If you go back to what you're taught in journalism school, you're not taught to grovel at power. In fact, there's many professors who I had who spent a lot of time trying to convince us to not grow at the altar of power and I think of my classmates many of them who do not go into journalism like straight up left and and. And didn't didn't try to have a career in it. And certainly there's folks that were never going to fit into the into the media world and there's then there's some people who are very much in mainstream media and in the problem is pervasive throat, but I think that you see the the worst in the hands of management in the hands of the folks that have power because you know. When you talk about racism anywhere, it's always a question of power, and so like to ask the fucking RCMP's their systemic racism in the RCMP like. Of course, there is like that's a bastion of power, just like there are systemic missile miscellany as we know broad wide scale. sexual assaults that have happened within the like it's a systemic Cesspool of shit obviously, and so, what? What School of Journalism Does Rosie Barton's study at to then ask the fucking chief commissioner of the P. is the richest immigration rather than. Well Sandy. You had several alternative questions that they could've asked her and there's a reason that they that they didn't and I. Hope that you can talk about some of those questions, but before we get to that I think that the situation with Wendy Mosley is a really good example of someone who's. Very high profile figure at the CBC is one experience with with Mesler where she fully told one of the guested like what to say in an answer to be less left wing. And yeah, yeah, it was the only interview I did with the CBC in the aftermath of the Humboldt situation and it was very weird. It was like a practice round, and he answered the question to like whatever it was, and she said Okay when when we're recording, you can't say this you have to. You have to say something more like this. Because what you said was to left left wing was to advocating for a left wing perspective, and so you know that kind of thing is normal at the happens within the mainstream. But. It's not normal such that that's how it should happen, and that's not what you're taught to do, and I know a lot of folks. The CBC who I mean I've told that story of people and they were horrified to hear that even happened not to say like Oh. Yeah, that happens. All the time were like what the fuck, but but Medjlis, Mosley's a main person and she. She was until she said a word that cannot be said and was suspended. Well as you say that I was on facebook this morning, and what? What has been interesting and kind of great about this moment? Is that a lot of people who are in journalism? Especially Black folks were in journalism right now in Canada have been talking about their experiences and talking about it publicly which is. Quite risky, and so you know are are taking this huge leap to talk about their experiences and one of those people is someone name. Lincoln Anthony Blades I hope he's okay with talking about this on the air. He made the his post public and he's. He said the same thing like so. He was a regular contributor. On CBC. On the same program as Wendy, Mosley and he speaks about how he responded to. Issues back in twenty sixteen talking about. Anti blackness or responses to black lives matter and so on, and she said okay. We've got to re re record this part because you can't say that. You cannot say that and so. That's I guess that that's just I. Mean who knows if that's happening? How many issues that's happening four but clearly? There are gatekeepers. that. Control how we talk about race in Canadian media because Lincoln Anthony Blades. Who is you know meant to be the black guy on these panels as he as he acknowledges in his post. And the weirdness that that comes with and even your situation when you're talking about humbled, you're talking about of course race, and how we how we understand tragedy. When we consider race and so. God it's just. I mean it's know you expect these things because it's obvious that that kind of thing is happening I think that's what's kind of. Dare I say surprising. It is a little bit surprising, even though it's not that surprising, it is a little bit surprising to me. Quite how avert? They can be about it at the level of the CBC. And, feel safe doing it continuingly continually time and again, and for these stories to be coming out now years later suggests a huge systemic problem in this in the CBC. Not just the CBC you know this is happening. All across Canadian media so. But fook one of these examples I. Think was perfectly encapsulated by this piece that rex. Murphy managed to get through. the sensors guess at the National Post and so he has this piece. I didn't read it. 'cause the guy's a fucking crank and Shit writer, and I don't have time for shit writing, but He essentially says that the that racism candidate doesn't exist. That's an liberal invention, and of course he means like illiberal liberal, because he really hates party Canada and is giving them too much credit manisha. Krishnan at vice got a hold of a recording. Did you see this? Keep talking I think I'd okay, so she got yes, no I. Definitely did I know what you're talking about. Continue says she got a hold of a recording of a meeting with. Management and journalists who were pissed because there are lots of journalists who are completely pissed that this that this ran. Because of course it calls into question the credibility of their newspaper and it's it's racist and it's it's. It's an attack. A personal attack Parwana that paper WHO's not wait. At that paper at the whole chain, that's not white and and basically what happened was the ball was dropped between the editor of the opinions page and the editor in chief, and it just ends in just brand as it was an edited, and it's just like one of these stories really yeah, of course because you don't fucking actually care like his, you want rex, Murphy to say Dumb Shit and that's what his. His job is and so you don't care if he says something completely ridiculous, but the thing that that makes me the most enrage. Is that on one hand? It's easy to make this issue like a generational issue. Where like we just have to wait for a whole bunch of people to die, and then all of a sudden, the system's going to get better like just defacto because there's going to be less old racists. These shows less people being gatekeepers. But it's also a self perpetuating issue because in the situation with with rex, Murphy like ignore the fact, that Murphy's a fucking dinosaur. The editor of the opinion pages Matt Gurney who's our age and Sandy I don't know if you remember Gurney, but the first time that I came across him was I think probably the first time you came across as well where we were filming something at MTV, I did something MTV. I don't think I did. Are you sure? I don't remember this I did. You may not have. You may not have been on the panel I feel like he must have been in the room because it was like we needed everyone in their in their best friend to be there, so they had this panel of of two youth who are opposed to the G, twenty and two youth who were for the G. Twenty. And, it was pathetic because the whole room is like, why would we boys two billion dollars in the G. Twenty? Like this whole thing? You arrested a lot of people. It was oppressive, was destroying our rights and the two people they had arguing in favour was mad, Gurney and Robin Herbeck. Oh My fucking God. Right, so that's what happens where a decade ago when you're a boot licking piece of shit, fucking asshole in sucking the fucking teat of all of these `gate-keeping piece of Shit Racist, and then you find yourself editing, the opinions page at the National Post, which of course was a job, they both. So and of course, robin went onto the CBC where she post a lot of bullshit under CBC opinions, not the least of which was a lot of racist shit as well and now, of course, she's reading opinion at the Global Mail so. The IT IS NOT GONNA be slow change that that that takes this white supremacist reality out of are over media..

"Okay. I don't play scrabble scrabble dictionary I know. What kind of like in life you're leading over there. I just I tend to play only with like the like an Oxford dictionary. Oh, no, because then you miss all the like little two letter words that are bullshitted dictionary. SCRABBLE dictionary. Okay, we have some rules to settle. The whole is going to be like I. Owe every. All, right, let's get into. Okay! Canadian Canadian media. Her. How did they wait this week? Nora I hear I just I. Can't I actually need you to fucking explain this to me because you're the one who went to fucking J. School? Okay and I I did not go to J school. Don't know how I've been writing so much for media stuff but I've I've zero desire to be journalist and every time I see you know what counts is journalism in this country I wonder why anyone would want to be journalists in Canada because it seems like the way that you have to fucking. I don't know. Walk around without your eyes. Open and with your ears. Closed I guess I don't know how else to say that or not being aware of what's going on is. An affront and embarrassment to journalism, and I know that that can't be the case for everybody who's writing somewhere in the editorial rooms, or in the editors, rooms or protection teams, people are I think changing stories or really controlling who what people are allowed to say, or what counts as news and I just you know. These are the assumptions I'm making because nothing else makes sense and I need you to explain this to me because you have the training. In. Somehow you didn't come out that way so what the fuck is going on, okay well, let's be clear I fucking drop down. We. What's your degree in home? I degrees. Degree is a bachelor of political science or politics or something. Whatever the version of politics is at Ryerson I I ended up getting that. Oh I didn't know that I totally would graduate it in. No, you've told me before that you dropped out. Had, a journalism I did five years in department, so I mean I fucking should have gone to a degree, and and partly one of the reasons why I dropped out was because It's not a degree at the time. I'm not sure if it's changed the you can't do part time. So. It's not a degree that you can do if you've got a fulltime job or if you've got kids or whatever and so, when I was working full time and trying to finish my journalism degree, they're like Oh. Yeah, but you can't do this part time like you have to be in class for eight hours a day, or whatever and I'm like Surrey, everybody is you gotTa Job? have to out another way to finish my degree because I'm not GONNA be able to finish my core two years that were left. Yeah, how is journalism suck I mean it's the the the entire media industry in Canada is an embarrassment, and it's an embarrassment for a whole bunch of reasons that have been laid bare in the last week in the last number of years, and I also think that it's important to remember that things have changed a lot as well like the way black lives matter is being covered now versus in two thousand sixteen is quite different. which is I mean only encouraging in that? It should be different, so I mean. It's totally groundhog day. But the same dinosaur, fucking white supremacist, maintaining managers have been in these positions of power for years and years and years and years, and so the result is that you've got immediate ecosystem as you know the. CDC is like for Sure Front Center of this, but it's not just the CBC. It's also the globe mail national post system. In global and CD, but they they exist to maintain white supremacy in Canada. And I don't think that people think about media in that way they see media as reflecting what's going on in your community telling your stories and this kind of thing, but baked into that is the the the intentional erasure of anything that that confronts whiteness or different than Whiteness, and so every story is told in opposition to Whiteness, and then they start to get in trouble which we've seen a lot of instances of that in the last couple of weeks. Yeah, I mean there are so many examples. That I'm sure we're going to miss them There's just too much to go through how the Canadian media has fucked up in the last couple of weeks. In this like forty five minutes show. But God like I mean we've got a rex murphy the REX Murphy Steph. We've got the Stockwell Day stuff we've got. We've got the Toronto Star seemingly positioning the fact that I guess they're just talking to white readers. The fact that white people can only be upset about either black lives or indigenous lives, and there's a limit. On that. And that we have to you, save some of our higher for indigenous lives. We can't expend it all on black lives. WHAT THE FUCK! And then every fucking interview. Every fucking ahead line that thought that the really big hard hitting questions to ask you this week were. To systemic racism existing. or or does reasons exist in Canada or any number of the ways to position that which I suppose is better than? In two, thousand, sixteen or two, thousand fourteen when it was like you know. Black lives matter sucks. Hated us, but but as nurses like it's different now, but only because people are like dragging them, kicking and screaming to be a little bit different and instead of being. Full on fuck this group. It's more like. Is what they're saying real. Do do black people are really know anything about their own experience. Let's ask the RCMP. Yeah, let's let's discuss amongst this panel of white folks and our one token black. Let's discuss. Or the RCMP is it racist? The fuck with every fucking cup every fucking cop that they talked to I. Mean I mean both What is that person's name at the RCMP, leaky, some lucky, lucky lucky, whatever lucky and Chris Lewis, who was on the TV multiple times, because he's the public safety expert for CPTV, and he's the former. Chief the Ontario provincial police chief. And both of them got asked about whether or not racism in their organizations, and both of them are like no, absolutely not I mean racism exists everywhere, so of course it's also in our organization, but not at all. Nope, it's like the answer that is always given, and it's like how the Fuck is.

"This it's off philosophy the idea of identity politics which carries two great axioms that I can only communicate with you if you're the same his I am and if your teaching me particular I can't be taught by you if you're not on my drive but education is actually to receive it from everybody else and take you yourself and the second thing is some divisions of identity Bali that the story on NBC Identity Politics Gender Politics that's roared into society they have people have to dinner tables North America are afraid to bring new subjects up more than half and we're being ruled by them yeah well it doesn't take it doesn't take a very large determined by not to shut down a large and silent majority that's unfortunately the rule and the identity politics issue it's a reversion to tribalism and you know so it's the miracle actually the surprise isn't actually that it's backed up surprises that it ever went away and we took the fact that it went away for granted and and we forgot the reasons went away we forgot the axioms right we we started to lose faith in them let's say and that's partly what I've been trying to fight against into right about why those were those rules were necessary and and I what they meant it is is part of your project the various words I'm using here is part of your project condom restoration or a reminder that certain certain markers are fundamental and cannot be moved well that is that is the project I mean when I wrote my first book took me about fifteen years to write and I spent really I spent all my time except when is writing scientific papers and when I was socializing which I did a fair bit of thinking about that book I mean it was really obsessive thinking chronic from the time I woke up till the time I went to bed less I was engaged in some other activity that would shut down my mind I was trying to understand whether the were was what a foundation of stone underneath the presumption of Western civilization or it was really a postmodern maps of meeting didn't understand because at the time being unfamiliar with that Lexicon let's say there was the terrible war raging and you know it wasn't obvious that it wasn't merely a matter of opinion you can make that case that well here's your set of Marxist precept position it sounded incredibly attractive and which still do to some you know from each according to his ability to each according to his need no one likes to see people with needs unfulfilled the problem is that needs multiply without end and ability is limited but you know you have to start thinking about the world harsh sophisticated way too she noticed that flaw I wanted to analyze that system and and the Nazi system to a lesser degree but but also that the western systems see if there is something the bottom that was rocked like wasn't merely arbitrary and I believe that what I discovered let's say I thought through was that we got some things in the West fundamentally correct and and their their correct for biological reasons which is very important because we'd be alone round very long time biological reasons are very fundamental but also that that biology reflect some underlying metaphysics says well we don't understand because they understand anything about the fundamental nature of the world it'll be on us so why yes the whys and the wherefores for that matter purpose all of that the fact that people have religious experiences and and they're they're easily do people and they seem to be consistent across the sideways at least to some degree and and what I decided then 'cause we because I was trying to understand why the world divided itself up into armed camps that were hell bent on mutual destruction right mutual assured destruction right the terrible acronym which was you know an insane satanic joke and why was so important for us to defend our tribal positions in that manner and what if anything could be done about it like it here's here's the solution we have this terrible tribal warfare it's characteristic of our species and it's accelerated to a degree that's not sustainable what do we do about it and the answer that came to me as a consequence of what I studied was that we try to make ourselves better people it's should Detroit is the elevation of the individual gop that right the individual is yes that begins the entire reaction yes why the identity politics makes individual a simple avatar of the collective right and everything that attached to him as always extra and not essential yes and and use your strip personality and we're adding up groups and trying to administer justice via collectively it's a team it's terrible it's it's it's so danger and I heard you on this why do we seek to perpetrate some sort of justice over generations the worst things in in all of history that you would make dishonored daughter carried a simpler for parents and now it's your stinging reparations again yeah all the ideas that we thought had been completely wiped out leader enlightenment or just simple logic itself they're back yeah why are we so easing the yielding to this I mean the patterns of crackers in language and people kind and things of that order it's an absurd all I think some of it is is the desire to escape from individual responsibility no if you can dissolve yourself into collective and and and then then the impetus isn't on you to act as forthrightly as as would otherwise be necessarily the case so there's that then there's the the the undeniable attraction of having someone to blame for the miseries of your existence which which are likely manifold so the comfort of saying I can start a small war with one another and we play games with each of these blocks Wanna be society what country but if you collective politics I mean the real politics into the subcategories gender sex ethnic religion and each of these is now claiming right only as elective everything else falls apart and loaded again back to the universities if there's one place it can reset balances it starts with mine it starts with the younger mind that will leave met with a more mature mind and taught the ways of the mine outta mind works would you should read how you form judgments how you contrast over great lengths of time not the in tomorrow five hundred years ago if you train the minds and is a balance and there's an opportunity to see the world as it really is and you have to believe in the mind in order to keep those back to exactly what we were discussing is that you know one of the things I pointed out to my audience is is that there isn't the debate about who should speak on campuses there's a debate about whether free speech exists that's a whole different debate I noticed people don't understand the difference in the severity of those two debates like if I don't want you to talk I still might believe that people can talk yes it can exchange opinions and they can change each other's minds and even if they're different the argument that's being put forward on the campuses to stop people from speaking is that there is no such thing as free speech all there is the exchange of I the ideas of avatars who are possessed by the group actually the logical consequence of that is to refuse to let them to speak speak because why should you allow the a group that you're in direct confrontation actually to to have its voice and so it's it's the collectivists the identity politics types it's they the very idea of individuality that they're opposed to that they've dispensed with and and that goes back to their to the French terrible the terrible the despicable French intellectuals who in my responsible for leading this revolution and it got picked up always the the most obnoxious and useless ideas useless in the sense of their of their of their intrinsic logic finding easiest walked onto campus it's the most trendy institution in the world yeah well and it came through the it came through welcomes the Yale in English department yeah that's where that's where that the the French continental ideas made their entrance into North America in all your speeches I know much get small Pete into politics politics that's the world we're in you'll get much chance because obviously no longer tolerate you around it would last you get much chance to expand on the beauties of the culture poetry music and things of this nature the other side of the academic The things that somehow they sing to the humans do I mean that's one of the reasons that that I was so motivated to continue the lectures because we actually put together a sequence of tours what we didn't plan one hundred and sixty one goal I mean it sort of unfolded on Human Bonna lift yeah yeah well it unfold across time because they were so popular the popularity didn't seem to be waning and but it was an opportunity to put forward the case for all the wonderful things that we've done I mean and to express gratitude and amazement at the fact did you know arc fact our city this city Toronto city works is for me it's an I think this is partly because sensitized so much to to the Task Fay's of existence in the collective and the personal sense is that when I go outside and everything works and there's all these people have different colors and creeds and religions walking down the street and so peaceful lights go on regularly and the power is always working and everything technological is one hundred percent reliable and there's no riots in the street and the probability you're going to meet with an untimely and painful death at the hands of someone else's almost nil and that we live for such a long time all of this me is complete it's a complete miracle truly is and I remind people of the unlikelihood of that constantly in the lectures and ask them to be great full for the fact that you think you look one hundred years ago nine thousand here's right the Russian revolution the first World War the Spanish influenza just absolut bloody hellish catastrophe one after the other conception of Nazism was brewing then to break right right right right the scenes ed next there were asked to free we're already at were they were and also of course the same thing with the Russian revolution which was bloody enough to begin with but which certainly accelerated in its brutality as it expanded and you know we don't have any of that at the moment it's actually the all this more peaceful than it's ever been there's no wars in the western hemisphere that's the first time since the coming of Columbus that the entire Western Hemisphere is the of of conflict I see frequently on your various sites that you do list up and that's that's another great counter the the environmental crowd and I don't take as being pure either some of them are obviously most of them are not they're they're always having a spectacular at the high table a catastrophe Louis ended the more this is the worst that ever be destroying the planet you pointed out very frequently certain of the technology is certain of the advances of the civilization that people over they put them into new situations they have relieved more suffering in some cases not maybe not more than we have caused but it's a different century should be grateful for things graduate is in short supply yes sudden and it's it's it's it's completely absent among the collectivists in people who play identity politics there's no gratitude at all and that's a and it's so interesting it's so interesting to me to see that because let's say the professors lead those movements they are the most protected people who've ever landed there and it's like they're standing on a hill in around the wall and it's for away and around the wall it's four feet away in another wallet another wall is just sequential walls and this edge of the sequential walls is a huge army and it's power and and all of that protects the absolute and they say everything is corrupt right and and the proper response although criticism is necessary obviously criticism means well this is wrong and this is how we could fix it it doesn't mean tear everything down leave with nothing and that's certainly that certainly happens to people in universities now they they come in barely formed believe they leave they leave in tatters you know and and that's that's it's also go back to you refer trump comes in and more power to them for that matter you he is talking investing and that's another absolute heresy he's not because one of the reasons that the people who hate the Democrats in the United States truly hate right there there's just vitriol because they've proved themselves in Cape full of generating a candidate who can actually take on trump and I think there's a disappointment even among the enemies of the Democrats that so profound that it generates precisely vitriol it's like the man is is is is characterized by manifold flaws and I'm not saying this in status a viable alternative I mean my poor friend who I said this has been following this and it's been deeply involved in the debates he's just he's just tearing out his hair watching degenerate should well exactly issue it's so sad you have a new age the people in the street the guy who called me about you that's a class and its vast class yes it is that's the great fifty percent yep Parker being insulting yes.

the family back to get other or help them advance in their career or got out of bed or stop them from using heroin or being alcoholic entered jumping up Woah you know all of that is I'm is it something that you at some point have at least two shield against no no no no I can put another way I meant to ask this a little early but already telling me when you when this began I want so when you began this when this began as an experience and you set out to the world I am started had maps of meaning I also know knowing you bet you had spent some considerable time doing actual stinking which is something people don't due very much as a classically you thought and you thought things through in a way that this generation of almost abandoned so you're prepared in that sense and you went out there were certain things you saw wrong or discordant eater into universities are general system and you said I'd like to spread some reason in there I'd like to talk about reality in life now when that began I I would think you everything was fairly fairly sufficient what did you earn at how did I'll call it a mission if I may how did the mission change over time when you came in contact the audience that you're now describing and what is it that you have learned you'll have an unlocked before and you know what you're at when you go out and encounter all of these and all of these individuals what new came to you well I would say I it isn't obvious to me that the the mission itself changed yeah I think it's an extension of what I've been doing since one thousand nine hundred eighty five maybe even before that it's just that the scale continued to girl main even with me a youtube channel where I put my lectures in rather primitive technological storm just using an ipad lapel mic I remember I had a million views by April two thousand sixteen and that really made me think because I've worked with TV of course my lectures were popular with big ideas which showcased a number of public intellectuals I think I'd five lectures in the top twenty or something like that so I knew that there was and I was getting a certain amount of recognition in public for that not not a lot but enough and then from a very wide variety of people which was quite quite interesting I think when I hit the million mark on Youtube I really thought about that because I thought well I don't know what to without figure I don't know how to conceptualize it in context because a million there's a lot of people it's twenty football stadiums full of people it's it's a it's an overwhelmingly bestselling book it's it's it's far more people than you teach in your life and I thought well what wasn't cute cat videos and this was this was back when Youtube was still a developing yours let's say to be sort of ignored in some sense because of because of it's humble beginning secondary place yes it was a very secondary place although that was starting to change I thought what the hell is this new to what what are we doing doing here and then it struck me that well this was a Gutenberg revolution that we were experiencing the spoken word was now as permanent and immediate more media than the printed word and just as permanent and with a much larger audience because more people as far as I can tell can listen then can read and even with my books occurred a tremendous percentage of my books have been sold in audio form So so I really started to think about you to that point and I suppose that was one of the things that drove me in my foolish curiosity to make those political videos that I made in October which was the first time I'd ever tried something like that and that was in some sense I wouldn't call it a whim but you know I woke up at three in the morning because I was so irritated about this bill it's it's it's it's an attempt to force a certain type of language usage night I could see what was behind that quite clearly I thought well you know this really is bring me to death and often what I would do when something was annoying me the death was get up and write but I thought well I'll making youtube video and see what happens it's like well I certainly saw assessment yeah you did yeah yeah no kidding well gives you know you you've got you've got a hold of something let's say it's you to and you think you know what it is and you know you don't you don't any idea what it is and neither does anyone else and that's certainly still the case we have no idea what these multiple technologies are doing but I can tell you that you do is a an overwhelming force and it's becoming more and more powerful day by day I've seen that in countries Slovenia was a good example where no one really trusts the mainstream press all the young people do not not so young either but pretty much everybody under thirty five I would say they watch as you do and that's the case all over the world and so it's I think on my youtube channel my videos have been watched one hundred ten million times is probably because people keep cutting them up and distribute which is something else that can be done on youtube right you can of a dialogue great where edit and make their own commentaries and the total for that would be at least five hundred million yeah that's for sure regard it's it's a new it's well it's not new conversation it's a new idea of conversation that we know that it's the word for it yup well it it is certainly serve me has conversational aspect that television lacks it's very comical to watch an organization like CBC tried to adapt itself a to because they'll put on a ten minute clip may break all the rules they put two thirty second commercials in front which you can't skip so Gotcha no one will watch it do you do you put on ten second commercial end you let people skip it after five seconds that's the rule they break that rule allow comments and so they'll put up something you might want to watch you know for ten minutes and you'll get like twenty thousand thirty thousand views because they don't take the convention the no they don't take it seriously and it's like you should take youtube seriously they also they also have no intuition for these particular forms and they're also this back to even to the beginning direct up in certain ideas about things they wrapped up in a certain orientation towards change politics that there's only a certain Sir certain corners they will walk down and there are other quarters which you are forbidden to awards or it is heresy to even admit today exist yes in relations Deign to address see one of the things that interesting about the youtube stars Rogan and then say Dave Rubin is that they don't think their audience is stupid and that's a good beginning reading good things I noticed at my lectures this while you talked about the gentleman who said you the fifty five well educated a tremendous number of the people who are coming to my lectures are people in that camp they're working class yes men but not always women as well but more men and their long haul truckers are construction workers and they're listening to three hour lectures and complex extra points no one and it's because they're not stupid they're interested in the world it also defies the great axiom of you're in the television world private or public for thirty years the idea have you had an interview I did a provincial show for years and years if you add interview mega four minutes to go watch you for five minutes that's right if you had a commentary can you make it sixty seconds the idea that people had an attention span inbound four minutes never intervened world of people in the studio and you and you put stuff on that has no glitz profound can be complex and it goes on for sixty seventy eighty minutes and everyone is happy yeah I mean it's all they've been operating under wrong assumptions for three decades while in Rogan's Grogan interviews with three hours low yeah watch the whole thing or listen to the whole thing let's go back to another area where you really have been on the mark I'm saying that personally and I think you're absolutely correct and this is not sycophancy the some of the stuff that goes on into university some of the I read the course syllabus read somebody's regal period of use some of the subjects in there are are beneath tripe that's that's why the flourished the serious I'm here what you thought about this a lot it's like what the hell happened and here's what happened is that the scientific hypes and and the serious scholars their their specific sort of person there rather obsessed the good the good the great ones cleanly upset and partly mad you while and then well maybe you need a bit of that I'd be completely obsessed I think you're a minority and scientists produce the Orange and it's the same in humanities and social sciences and so those are people who are working seventy or eighty hours a week all they do is work and what they work on is there thing and they need to do that because well they're on the cutting edge and they WANNA stay there and they have their ambitions for some some sometimes it's political ambitions but their stuff never lasts but the good scholars are some of them are great these discover amazing things I mean I've encountered amazing psychological research you know that's just especially in the physiological on the physiological ended things in the general literature that's just absolutely brilliant beyond even the devoid of discoveries tremendous ecstasy yes we're well and it's a minority taste in some sense and then there's these pseudo blends which have multiplied since the nineteen sixties and no one who was serious paid any attention to them see that's what happened is that in the series people were busy doing their serious things and there was all this stuff yeah political activism identity politics gender stuff that's right in the in the what they call grievance studies and everybody just sort of assumed that they were noisy but harmless but they were not harmless because they're extraordinarily well organized and the balance tipped nose tipped in the nineties because there was a big big rising of political correctness around us in the American economy boomed like mad and kind of I think that just kind of took the steam out of the out of the what would you call it out of the objections but something happened for years ago something like that.

he's got here on the Lori and he's got sixteen of them under breath Carl young once said that internal contradictions are played out in the world has fate you know is that the thing about propositions if they're accurate is that they terrible bureaucracy is persecuting was a immigrant woman I believe she was uh-huh who had a on aesthetics business in her own home based as a consequence of of the negative publicity publicity and the pressure she shut down her Biz dot only knows what that means for her family began while in for her new asking about courage earlier you know one of the things that I have watched quite frequently is the way that people respond to being mobbed twitter yeah almost stopped looking at twitter it's been about three months that I've taken a twitter hiatus lead singer still post I I don't even have my password anymore I send what I WANNA post to third party and they post because it keeps me out of the Amanda suspect that's right exactly and that's exactly the right thinking about you know people civilized people in civilized socialized people can tolerate being mobbed because they can't because there's a reason for that you see you you said with regards to the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal you know if they're sixteen people on one side and one on the other you might be thinking that the sixteen people are right more or less right right but then you think of the situation where you've said something on twitter and six thousand people mob you publicly I mean your first response if your your first response is going to be to examine your own conscience and see how you transgressed it's not really much different psychologically I mean it's lesser I suppose but it's not that much difference and then waking up one morning and coming to your door and finding a mob of your neighbors angrily at updated on your lawn you know it's terrible shock for people and it really hurts them you know they're often they're often by all accounts you know damaged for lengthy periods of time by this and the first their first impulses to apologize which is which is truly the wrong thing to do stand well the right thing to do is to is to is to understand that if you haven't done anything wrong you don't apologize now that's very difficult very difficult and then too wait wait two weeks people won't come to your defense what it takes the people who will come to your defense two weeks to get their act together it's the activists who are unbelievably organized fifteen seconds to view when there's two points to draw out of their first of all because you have now been almost our host into the world of celebrity multimedia vast attention I've dabbled in a lesser known for a long while so you adjust the kind of swirl okay but what I've never forgotten and I'm serious is that people who are not in it at all my father or agents I'm just backing up your point your name suddenly becomes the center of of some great putters snowstorm in pejorative terms and people are speaking of the most vulgar response it is a terror it isn't three dismiss it but people who have not experienced it is really really really something it's unbearable pain yes and they bring it down with club force and the great the great megaphones of national networks et cetera expunge person's personality with this Guy Paletti yes well in its permanent right because the record never disappears I'm put a person the question now when you because I know you had been on Youtube you put you knew the media in that sense but you weren't media person in your baptisms Harsh is it was how hard was it in the first couple of weeks for you to find balance in scaling maybe clinical psychologist and you are obviously mature oh I don't think I've ever Melanson and scale join clubs I don't believe it here in these great throbbing moment with all the off came in and he's hates this one and your name is flashed all over the world that was the first real magnitude of media attack on yeah so even for you how was that period well it was dreadful I mean especially the first couple of months because well because the attention was well it hasn't been since then but the attention was unbelievably intense I mean I had there were days upon days where there were reporters lined up coming into the house one after the other doubts that really hasn't stopped stopped let's say in the last two months since since the end of March however long without it's because I've shut myself off because of my I have some family health oh that's very serious but I don't take ever adjusted to it What's made it bearable I would say and some of it's been very good known and it's taken my life which was fairly broad a fairly broad range of experience this is partly because I'm a clinical psychologist and you know it's taken it from good to great and unbearable Yoyo between those states what's helped is the first thing is is that you know I determined right from the beginning that I was going to say carefully what I believe to be true because there wasn't a safer route than not it's interesting you know that that in the final analysis it wasn't certain that anything would protect me better than boiling too right well whether that would work or not was debatable. what there wasn't a better option yeah I believe that you know I still believe that and I think the success of what I've done is an indication about the success of my book say which is also absolutely overwhelming I mean it's impossible to now see I'm kind of yeah no I'm just about sixty tenure white male there's all of those are bad man yeah well the whole part I think has to the ability yeah well but you know it it's it's fulfilled and the lectures and podcasts as well and the youtube videos they've to fill the need which also is something that's very difficult for me to to reconcile myself to you know on every time I walk down the street someone stops me someone stopped me on the way here and as opposed to my treatment at the hands of a minority of journalists which is being atrocious upon occasion and academics as well the treatment I received from people in public is so positive that it's almost unbearable double let me tell you personally that relates to you I don't mix mild stuff with family members sisters non-political kind of person and uh as I say I don't mix those things she called me she's out of this world altogether she called me about a year ago have you seen Jordan Dr Jordan Pigeons Dr Love this stuff and she is following the videos biblical lecturers she's a smart Nice woman and then that was one thing that I was unsolicited should not in the world of publicity shows involve fads but somehow your name got in there and she's watching these with great attention very enjoyment actually but the one one particular friend of mine from home never finished school he's about fifty five fifty six so we're not into the team cohorts and he calls me up I don't think he's read a book and six years and he says I've been watching this Persson fellow I re- reproduce what he was saying adjusted he found such comfort and he he found such support and my thought when I was hearing this someway to relate to you in all the ping pong back and forth going these voices are saying something doing something really fine for people that I could never project would be receiving the it's it's an it's very this is also something that's been very difficult to both understand and I would say in a strange way to tolerate because I've become opened up to the trouble that people have in a way that far exceeds even what I experienced as a clinical psychologist you know last year my wife and I went to one hundred sixty cities it was well we figured we'd better make while the sun shines so they're stronger men than I be well you get caught up and you get caught up in wave of events and and the adrenaline self supplies while was it was it was exciting and worthwhile and the demand was there you know and fifths I enjoy lecturing I used the opportunity I delivered a different lecture every right and are used the opportunity to thank you know and and to communicate which of course is what you're psychologically in a manner that I believe could be psychologically helpful but it was also I think I don't know exactly what the cumulative effect on me off but I had no idea the degree to which sure so many dying for a word of encouraging people want that's what my friend was about a I'm speaking back to you on the same thing I know what he was saying he it felt no soft rain for a long time yeah and he was in this camp of the ruling neglected educated you're not particularly sophisticated a low paying job gets you yeah and then someone is out there of stature and credibility and this guy who would never be circle never you send an Echo Ping him and he was calling me and say my God this is something so allow yourself to feel good thing is the funny thing is is that it doesn't feel it doesn't feel good that might be reflection my general state of mind which is Unsettled at the moment for the reasons that I told you well because of all of everything that's happened over the last few years interest but to get a taste of the depth of despair that that can be mean rated with with the not much more than you know some some words of encouragement some some statement that you know you as a human being aren't intrinsically worthless and you have a spirit worth preserving and the things that you do in your life that you correctly are important it's like people are are literally dying from our code and I mean that I mean that not really wanted to sleep I don't know how many people have told me and these record things stay here it's being hundreds of people can meet people after each of my lectures who've told me that they are still alive because they watch lectures because they read my booker and then they usually have a good story to tell you about what sort of hell they happened to be in six months earlier and what they.
"rex murphy" Discussed on The Jordan B. Peterson Podcast
"Next Murphy's interview with Jordan Peterson wrote the join me now is probably by the world's most famous intellectual certainly most famous intellectual Canada in the last twenty years and he will be with me about the role of the university and about his meteoric rise to intellectual and media influence Dr Jordan Peterson I'm going to start on on an incidental thing at least to me and has bothered me since you became known as it is now to all the world and that was in very early days of the the controversy that came to you when the University of Toronto sent you some military letters that I thought I've used this word before insolent that I thought were against the spirit of university that they weren't supporting you there are actually threatening you yes and that said to me something beyond the converse something deeper is wrong here that universities are this diversity is is upside down how did you reason that how did they get there they could be so completely unaware drone decision well I think a lot of it was was confusion and and the lack of experience with this sort of thing I mean University of Toronto is a peaceful place and rather conservative university all things considered the administration isn't prepared to handle a controversy of the nature that swirled around me they were used to making enter administrative decisions and when they were put on the spot and forced to defend their fundamental presumptions let's say it isn't clear that they were ready and prepared to do so partly because of lack of practice it isn't necessarily the case that you climb the administrative in university by engaging in continual philosophical reappraisal of the fundamental presuppositions of university as an institution you know it's much more of job and so I'm going to say everything I can in favor of the University of Toronto before I say thing I've found too that when I've been put on the spot by journalists and ask to defend let's say customs that everyone has always accepted like marriage yeah it's very difficult to generate a hence for such institution off the top of your head let's say because part of the whole purpose of customs is that everyone except you don't think it reflects the they're unstated presuppositions and so when you put on the spot you don't know what to do when I first got the letter the first letter and I know how HR departments work they send you one letter of warning so that it's documented and then they send you another so that it's documented they send you a third and if you haven't ceased by then while then they go to the next step which would be something to do with whatever approximation determination they might do document you yes yes and they're documenting all the steps and I told the person who delivered the letter to me whose personnel actually got along with quite well that it was full of errors and it was poorly renton and that they should take it back and properly followed and because if they were going to do this they better do it right there there was going to be trouble and I didn't mean that I was going to cause trouble necessarily but that there was going to be trouble but they didn't it back so I read it on Youtube so and and then I did the same thing with the second letter and then I met the Dean and after that and we'd agreed we had a quite congenial discussion I would say and we agreed to have a discussion at least a debate would never was a debate it was I don't know what they call those now they can't be debates they were forums or something something not a debate about free speech on campus that was the three sorry I saw that it was quite was but they did do it which which was something you know and I've also heard that behind the scenes because I had some friends who some colleagues who have some access to administrative decisions and they believe that the University of Toronto in the aftermath of all this has actually reconfirmed its internal commitment to free speech so and you know I don't know how much of that is true but I'm willing to give them a certain amount of of benefit of the doubt but it's important to understand that people can be caught unaware and the other thing too is that they actually did me a bit of a favor because one of the things like claimed in the Youtube video that I made was that what I was doing by making the video was probably illegal yes I remember and their lawyers basically said it was probably illegal and so that also helped establish my bonafides let's say as a reasonable interpreter of of the law and so it wasn't all bad although it was extraordinarily stressful that demonstrations that followed how is it that any university which is of all things obviously the exercise thought training in mind and therefore the power of expression that comes as a result goes to things that the say things we're on the banner of reason and exercised mind that's what it is so how come how comes at that on certain issues the transition under one of the politically correct once that suddenly I don't need his language being being bent it's been turned upside down in some cases it's also geologist's are floating out Derby seconds with new rules on them to a word you never heard yesterday is somehow or other prejudice if you say today League to very much like the idea of dead naming the very one I was thinking that didn't exist two days ago and now if you dead someone doesn't exist you're in violation of something or when have we let go to straps that kept us either just something light reason or whenever we lost our nerve that when people come to you and they say two things that you know not from bias are nonsense that they can simply be dismissed as nonsense with no peril whatsoever well you're all you're assuming that we have nerve I mean sorry I mean so some people have nerve but one of the things I've learned over the last three years because really this all started North Tober of two thousand sixteen was that the percentage of people who have nerve is very small and vanishingly small you know I've met People Douglas Murray has nerve yeah that's sure Roger Scrutinize nurse. She has Lindsey Shepherd has nervous yes there's a handful of people that I've met who you can't move and one of them I would say try well succeed I would say it and I've met a number of journalists who've I've had my fair share of conflict with journalists that's for sure I would say talking to journalists is the most stressful thing I've done apart from talks at university campuses journalism that's just a sidetrack because very good issue journalists I've been playing at it from margins for a long time the journalism is very much corrupted it is not the media in the middle it is in many cases wittingly or unwittingly partisan it is part of the game that it says it's covering journalism is one of the failing institution yes as much as universities well you know there's there's technological reasons for that you know the journalists journalism as such is under unbelievable pressure from the new technologies you to podcasts in particular which of course also vastly expanded what constitutes journalism and so journalists are running scared it's very difficult for them to to find paying jobs it's their staffs for sure inking the newspapers are in trouble television stations are vanishing and so there's increasing desperation I would say as well as decreasing professionalism among those who still practice and so some of it's the personal failings of the ideologue who happen to be occupying positions at eighty logs occupy but some of it's a consequence of these transformations in in in communication technology that are so vast that they're actually is of people which is one walloping network yeah but podcast maybe ten times as popular so it and that's all underground interesting yeah they don't attract as much attention or as much much controversy maybe because they're more silos in some sense but the journalists are fighting a losing game and and I think as you fight a losing game I've seen this happen with corporations you lose your best people first and then the death spiral begins and I think we're seeing exactly that and then that's exaggerated by this proclivity to polarization that also might be part and parcel of the technological changes okay let me let me sweet back to that were nerve I know because I follow you how deep your respect and attention to Alexander Solzhenitsyn is if he's if you have a hero obviously is it now in the Soviet Union should be gone styling he had steel over here when okay we have trans activist group that's the thing yeah and you almost almost innate we know that this is absurd and you say well I don't think I'm GonNa say it's absurd what are we afraid of we wars and say we gave all our soldiers will preserve democracy and freedom of speech there is no there is no loss if you decide to challenge in terms of any contrast with the totalitarian systems where if you said something you really did pay a price we're seeing new over here lose job well you could be hauled in of quasi-judicial Tribune's as well I mean they're certainly willing to do that I think the human rights tribunals should my opinion they should be AH travesty they're they're they're yes we're setting up these quasi-judicial in positions in all sorts of constituted because I read the biographies of some of the people who were I wanted to be judging their own calls in this context it's because people judging the causes precisely but I think what's happened in British Columbia with this case's what's what's the person's name Jessica or Jonathan I prefer Jonathan Jonathan in front of the charge and I asked the question if sixteen people are of this mind and one person's of this who is the which is the more likely the off yet well it it seems it seems irrelevant I mean it's a consequence you know one of the things I pointed out with Bill C sixteen was that it contained multiple Oh contradictions especially in the background policies which I had read in quite a bit of detail they were formulated in Ontario although the Federal Government remove the link on their website to those policies after I pointed out the fact that link existed which I thought was unbelievably underhanded and still believes central states of being in the world and if you entertain a set of propositions that are internally contradictory then you're going to run yourself into all sorts of sharp objects and and and and and dead ends and that's exactly what's happening and it it it every time and I thought this really for three years every so you think that there's no possible way that this can get more absurd than one more example comes up where it's more absurd and I would say the situation in BC's precisely that I mean one of the women that he's persecuting because I think he and this.

"Realize this this is the first time in check this out twenty six years. eight federal elections that we're in the middle of a campaign and you're not on the air what's a what's it like to sit this one out well not really sitting it out I'm still ranting on just doing it my television instead of on the the neighbors may have filed a noise complaint. it's a it's really interesting you know its when you cover politics you're obviously inside the bubble and even when I wasn't on television if it had an election happen to fall in a time that I wouldn't be on television I would go to maclean's magazine or or some outlet to just get me out there because I was desperate to get out on the road and and covered so it's it's obviously very different but but I'm finding the election fascinating like I usually find elections are you missing at all other times we should get on TV and then flip out about something I guess so I mean at the beginning of the election the conservatives posted a meme that had me saying vote conservative and I thought wow I really wish I had a show this week I didn't say that. and it would have been that would have been fun to have a way to correct that but yeah I miss it it is a must be funny to be sort of that that must've been interesting for you to be off of television and still be sort of part of the political discourse as sort of a symbol by another party well it just came as a surprise I guess because I started getting well I looked and I was trending on Twitter and I was like and my dad. trending on Twitter is often very bad. trending on Twitter and it was because of this mean and I guess I was flattered to a certain extent that they thought Hey that that would you know maybe move some votes but I was more it more baffled that they thought they could get away with that right because I think throughout your career I've always seen you as somebody who is been less a directive about who to vote for and more about voting you've you're strongly believe in in the act of voting I I've never ever told anyone how they should vote but on the show we did a lot of work we got involved with the vote mobs which were really exciting and they were truly non parties and they took place in every province and territory and you know like sixty campuses lots of students coming out and you know those were such exciting demonstrations and you very rarely saw liberal signer ninety peer conservative a green it was always surprised we're voting we're voting we're voting and that's all the parties because the young people were just saying they were voting and obviously I find it it's something up I'm very passionate about I think that you know I always voted now I had an interest in politics from an early age more so say that my brother and sister but they also always voted and I think why is because my parents voted and more importantly they took us to vote and I think anyone who's listening if they're going to vote. if at all possible if instead of just stopping in after work and voting if they can go home get the kids and then take them to vote I think that makes the world of difference I think I think absolutely I'm not surprised because I remember I remember going to my my dad going to vote in the Saint Matthew's Jim in St John's Newfoundland short picking me up from school a pick me up from home and take me to to vote that was an important thing to do everything you got to wear street shoes in a gymnasium in a school. pretty X. that mean that that right there is pretty exciting what do you think it is that keeps what do you think it is the keep young people from voting well I think there is a little bit of that like it's I think if you're a young person and you don't have the example of people who vote you don't have the people talking about it you it's it's intimidating you don't you don't necessarily know how to go about voting and if it's not something that's behavior that you know you've witnessed you it's easy to fall to the cracks but we also know that voting is it's learned behavior and it's addictive if people boat if and the numbers are there like if if an election happens and there's a bunch of eighteen year olds and they vote their voters for life that's why I actually I'm I believe the voting age to be sixty. I know. people never know what to think about let's talk more about that tell me how you were you arrived there the voting age we join the Canadian military and go overseas you probably won't get sent overseas but you can certainly join the army at sixteen you can jot drive farm equipment we expect you to follow the laws of the land and to understand them do you know sixteen year olds have responsibility I also think that it would be very exciting imagine if everyone in grade twelve vote yeah. that would be very excited how would that change how do you think how do you think that would change how the politicians talk to young people or even the tests that they might actually talk to young people when was the last time you saw. I usually see them on commercials during the price is right you know yes in the Wilford Brimley trying to talk to me about diabetes and like that so what but. what what what would that change with the with the voting well I I think that I think that sixteen year olds I think they would. but the chance to vote I believe and like I say it's habit forming and if they vote then they'll vote four years later and then you have them I don't know anyone who I thought the panel on first time voters was very interesting and when I heard there was a a panel of first time voters I was hoping it wouldn't be all eighteen nineteen year old right I was really glad to hear that there was you know a gentleman who's thirty two because I think there are very few and far between I think if you haven't voted and your thirty you're probably never going to vote so we got to get them young you you mentioned that you're you you had a brother and a sister who weren't as politically engaged as you they're gonna be so mad they're gonna be like we were engaged. we watched John Newman yeah I. what happened to you man but what happened to you that that that you're in a politics when you're like seven years old everyone else is watching dynasty and you're watching I had a I had a godfather who is my father's best friend who I liked because he would talk to me like I was. not seven or ten and I just liked him very much you know he was one of my favorite adults and he ran for the Liberal Party Newfoundland and then no he ran to the conservatives and then I think he crossed the floor within two days. red for the liberals and was this rated and then he ran for the leadership of both parties he was what we call local color. but he was a great great influence on me and so also dad would drag me down to these rallies where we would be chanting his name and I found it all very exciting when did you realize that you were better suited to comment on politics and you were actually running them themselves thank you must be approached like must happen yeah although I've never you know I think if you cover politics you always had this fantasy that it's like a politics is your baseball you have the status you're gonna get this phone call to going to become the general manager of the blue jays or something like finally I'll go in there but I don't know if I've never really considered running for public office I think I would like to. I I admire people who do it later in life actually when they're sixty or something yeah I I'm not that impressed with these people who not that I don't think there should be young people in politics but not that impressive all of these you know lifetime politicians like at nineteen they're working in a local constituency office and they're just looking for a place that they can run and then that's it they're in there for like twenty five years I think that you need life experience maybe work in a cafe or something yeah working working a job do the job of the people that you're representing so investors let's go back to it what what made you decide that you have you had a proficiency for maybe commenting on I loved I just I love politics I love the effect it had on people and I loved commentary because my father would drive me to a soccer practice on Saturday mornings and no one could talk because his father would go on CBS radio and due out like a song about politics and then dad's head would pop off. he was rex Murphy known and I thought wow you know you can you talk about politics people get really worked up I also believe politics matters and I and I want good people to run that I want and they should be held accountable so I always love the fact that I had a format to talk about politics on a weekly basis so how do we do it what what's what's your solution and we talked a little bit about lowering the voting age but how do we get I mean the kind of what we're here for how do we get more people voted and voting engage the democratic process we were talking about this backstage a moment ago you know in Australia you have to vote and they don't find that strange like it's a very radical concept here but you know it's been going on in Australia for so long and and if you don't want to vote like say your jobs witness or something you can fill out a form you don't have to vote so if you have real reasons why an actual objection consciences yes can you can you know you can avoid voting but one I would certainly entertain that because you know we all understand that none of us want to do jury duty but we get that it is our responsibility as citizens right and we all get that and we accept and we accept that we have to use red lights and we don't run red lights and we there's all sorts of things that are we are required to do as citizens so why not be required to actually take five minutes out of your day every four years and have a say.

My got sick, but that's because of medication that I'm taking for us, your thrives and so on. And I have respiratory problem that was exacerbated by doing vertical casino stairs in Portugal. Are you a regular user or you just trying to support your son's business. I'm a regular user and have been for fifty years and not not starting after breakfast or anything like that. But at the end of the day, at the end of the work day, usually before supper, I would I would have a joint and maybe partial before going to bed to help sleep good to be able to actually tell the world that without having to kind of hide and sneak around, you know, I d, ah, what it's like. I'm sure to come out of the closets it. It's just a relief. Whereas before I would be very circumspect and only talk to my friends who I knew and but now it makes all the difference in the world because anybody who says to me only druggy and you're this and that well, you know, it's two thousand eighteen. This should have all been done fifty years ago when Elliot Trudeau. You know, he should've said, I'm going to legalise cannabis watch me. Okay. Well, and you had you actually have a story about Pierre Elliott Tudo the father of the man who actually now has legalized this correct? For him, diligently at no charge to organize the largest political cavalcade ever held in the province of Newfoundland. And I'll tell you one of the key organizers Mr. Rex Murphy part of the story takes place in the woods. Yes, that was in a place called Carbonare and it was at a hotel and they went for a stroll with these security people, you know, behind Trudeau. Rex Murphy NPR too, and here and whether Rex felit down is. God and tell you about that. I have. No, I can't do that. So Rex Murphy and Pierre. Elliot, who went into the woods and shared some marijuana together? They went into woods into the woods, and they had a long discussion. With that. So during the discussion, was there smoking involved? I think that there were some clouds seen. Okay. I'm gonna take this as confirmation. I think people understand what you're saying. Okay, let's get back. So now the scene last night when you at your son store, what was that like this shop? Did he opened? Okay. Thing that struck me most was that in, let's say, there's a hundred people in the lineup, coming up to the door and there's only six people allowed in at a time. When I looked the first time I give, I gave my head of shake, and I said, these people don't know each other, but they're all talking to each other. There's not a cell phone, a laptop and air piece in any of them, and they're all below thirty five years of age women's the last time you saw hundred people under the age of thirty five talking to each other and almost breaking into song and happy to be out in the freezing cold weather standing outside. In the middle of the night, we should. You go into a store and the people are talking to each other, it's it's communication. So it was fun. Was it a good night. Awesome. It was awesome. Very emotional experience for me. I think conservative because of my parents, you know, they've been gone for ten years or so, and their view of marijuana was don't touch it. You know, they had no concept of it down this finish up even awake for a couple of days. Now, helping your son night. How are you gonna wind down this evening? If my call and my kidney stone don't bother me. I may have half a joint before I go to bed. All right. Sounds lovely. I hope you enjoy it. Thank you. Carol. By by Donald b, Clark, father of Thomas h. Clarke of teach distribution. We reached the elder Mr. clarkin pooch cove Newfoundland, and there is more on that story including a picture of dad making that I purchase from sun on the as it happens website CBC.
