"More complaining about to joe biden. And we know who he is. He is not the president of this country. He has some sort of aims ambitions to china or central america. We've gone into that many different times instead. We need to be solution-oriented. I do not like the politics of complaining. Now if you live in california. I get it. Texas is not california texas hill country. They'll secure the border. The good folks in fredericksburg texas. They won't put up with this at all. We also have to stop caring with the left and the media says about us to relevant play. Cut fifty two. But we want to show you why this camp got so big in the first place at swelled the fifteen thousand saturday morning hundreds of migrants at a time just streaming in from sudani kunia walking across the river and just illegally entering the united states without any resistance from our federal government whatsoever. They crowded on the shore and huge masses. We watched it for five six hours straight thousands coming in and eventually the only thing that stopped it was the state of texas and they literally formed kind of a wall if you will with their patrol vehicles and they stemmed the flow. They formed a wall and they stemmed the flow. Of course there's zero resistance from federal authorities. Federal authorities are under orders from the president to allow an open border society. And this really does open the question. And i've asked this question for the last couple months. And i think we're finally seeing an issue that is exposing how republicans are under prepared to deal with the actual crisis. That's happening in america. Which is how much power to the states. Actually have the federal government postures. They flex their muscles but we saw under the trump administration that the federal government backed down when sanctuary state and sanctuary city measures were passed in seattle in portland and san francisco. Los angeles what texas needs to do is create a confrontation with the federal government and the federal government will back down. Texas is the perfect place to test this out.

These are individuals as we've noted and has been discussed we're expelling individuals based on title forty two specifically because of covet because we want to prevent a scenario where large numbers of people are gathering posing a threat to the community and also to the migrants themselves so those are the policies that we put in place in large part because again the cdc continues to recommend title forty to be in place given face global pandemic. I mean are you kidding as individuals. They're not intending to stay here for a lengthy period of time. I don't think it's the same thing.

A 20-Year Megadrought Threatens Hydropower in the West

"A twenty year. Mega drought in the west is threatening hydropower. For millions of people so the federal government is taking emergency action it sending water from other reservoirs to lake powell to help. Keep the power turbines. They're spinning. here's michael. Elizabeth sack is from colorado public radio at elk creek marina. People wait in line to back their trailers into the water to pull their boats out. And some like walter. Slut cough are frustrated. Resumes legua up and down many times. But we're not happy with it this year. Of course because we're all getting kicked out early and we pay for slips for the season. Blue mesa is colorado's largest reservoir. It's already less than thirty percent full. And now it's being forced to sacrifice more water to send to lake powell eric. Logan is head of operations at elk. Creek marina he had to shut down six weeks early because of the low water levels. It's a big hit for us for sure. There's a bunch of employees. That doctor would be employed into october and suddenly they're out looking for employment in middle of august. The deepening drought in the west has dealt a double blow to blue mesa this summer with climate change there's less snowpack and warmer temperatures increase. Evaporation so less water is making it into the colorado river and reservoirs like blue mesa and now the federal government is taking water from this lake into other reservoirs. If we were full it wouldn't be that big deal but since we're already so low and we're barely hanging on by our fingertips on trying to stay open. You take eight feet of water and suddenly we got shut the doors and move everything out to deeper water and there's nothing we can do about it. Lake powell on the utah. Arizona border hit its lowest level on record earlier this summer. Logan worries the reservoir will need even more water from blue mesa. If the drought doesn't improve the question is are they going to release whatever we get. That would become a very big problem for everyone around here. Blue may sat and the other reservoirs were built in the nineteen sixties for times of drought. It's a bank of water that the states can tap when they need. It says john macleod. A water lawyer in colorado. The water always goes to lake. Powell and this release is part of the plan. And it's using the reservoirs for one of their intended purposes

So i bought it my very first ocean crews here on viking venus with a little bit of trepidation and some pretty high standards what i can tell you as you see during the course of this. It didn't entirely go to plan. I was blindsided by things. I was surprised by somethings and some things. Were basically pretty much.

A man called torsten haagen so viking ocean of course came from rivers they started in european rivers and then expanded to rivers around the world and then are also gains expedition. cruising delivered. Experience on viking is pretty luxury but it's not ultra luxury so probably quite comfortably competes with an fits with lines like say. Oh she anya. As amara perhaps even winstar which is pretty luxurious small ships higher level of service good quality fixtures and fittings however. It was very clear that viking has a significant difference to those lines so people who might like those lines like viking. But they'll find something very different because the experience viking is quite different though to those particular lions because at its heart has a very different philosophy. And that's because it came from riveted started with rivers not with ocean and the whole way that they approach and do cruising is pretty

At first blush this might sound a little like the system in the united states where the state directs a criminal trial and the families of victims can bring separate civil suits to court. But that's not what this is. The judges in this case won't issue to verdicts one for the public prosecutors and another for the private team they'll only be one verdict. It's just that the state and the private prosecutors will have a voice in the courtroom. Joseph barra is a law professor at ucla specializing in human rights law. He's part of an international observer mission monitoring the trial. He says that the private prosecutors might be thought of as a sort of legal insurance policy against corruption. Imagine a case where. A public prosecutor might be paid off or influenced by a wealthy well-connected. Defendant a team of private prosecutors might help counter the possibility of a fixed trial. Ideally their interests should in some ways merge with the public interest in getting to the root of the crime finding the truth and achieving justice and they have a specific kind of moral high ground in wanting to achieve justice because they are the ones who have been victimized by the crime. Trials like this are required to be open to the public according to honduran law but the law didn't foresee the outbreak of a global pandemic. The judges ruled that only the separate teams of attorneys as well as one member from their family and one from david's could watch from inside the courtroom to satisfy the requirement that the trial be public. The judges made it available via livestream. The audio isn't the best quality at times. it sounds completely distorted. The camera doesn't show the judges more often than not it's pointed at the backs of the public prosecutor's so it's not that great capturing whatever visual drama might unfold but when you call up the video there's a column where observers can type in comments in real time and instantly david's family members and sympathizers start to get into sparring matches with two side as the trial gets underway someone using an account linked to coping betas organization types of comment may justice be done and may david pay for his crime. The name of david's mother denura appears on screen. You might remember her from previous episodes. She's always been her sons. Most unwavering defender everything will come out. Everything will come out someday. I am more than my faith is like unbreakable. And i know that somehow somewhere someone will be able to to tell the truth about all this and how everything has been manipulated denura types of response in the margin. She says god will never allow david to be punished for this crime. Because he's innocent someone snaps back and tells her to leave god out of it that triggers backlash from other backers of david one says bear to was a fraud. Someone who stoked conflict for personal gain the running commentary never stops it appears as constance scroll enrolling throughout the trial and it will only get nastier since april twenty eighth two days after the trial was supposed to end it but new appeals and complaints by the defense have had to be sorted out and dismissed intern. Finally it's time for the opening statements. The public prosecutors go i. They explained that they're going to present hard evidence that will leave no doubt of david's involvement in this killing. He was in communication with some of the people who've already been for taking part in the murder. Witnesses will be the government telephonic. Investigators who extracted those communications and who've mapped out the connections that they say put david at the center of the crime next. The private attorneys representing bertos family have a turn. They'll argue that. David's company desa was essentially a criminal organisation they it used political and economic connections to harass and terrorize berretta. Finally it's the defense's turn they reject everything. The prosecutors have implied in their statements. They argue that the honduran investigators the same ones that the prosecutors consider their star. Witnesses.

"On in the five plus years since betas debt lots of people in honduras and around. The world urged the country to bring her killers to justice. Seven people have already been sentenced for their roles in the killing. These included the hitman who pulled the trigger to kill bhakta as well as a few middlemen. Who helped plan the logistics. But to the castro has family and their supporters that wasn't enough punishing low level triggerman. Is one thing going after the powerful accused of pain them to kill is another and that kind of accountability is extremely rare in honduras.

"river" Discussed on Akimbo: A Podcast from Seth Godin

"Rivers about the fact that it might be okay for the storm drain to wash away. Some of the residue from your yard or your orange trees but it's not okay for people to start dumping sewage into the river simply because it's more convenient particularly if it's going to make people sick kill all the oysters and degrade the quality of life for everyone but what happens if we think about rivers a little bit more metaphorically what if we think about the river of time unlike the hudson river the river of time generally only goes in one direction unless you ask h. g. wells this river of time when it starts here and goes forward is something that affects all of us as we think about standards in our community so for example most communities have figured out that an educated populace that when you spend the time and money to educate six year olds or nine year olds teaching them to read and write to understand science and other things they will grow up down the river of time to become better contributors to the culture that all of us benefit when kids are educated so on behalf of the kids who don't have a say in it. The community speaks up and says all kids have to be educated and on behalf of the parents the community says and we're gonna pay for it and hence public school and i'm hoping that most of the people who are listening to this agree with me that levying attacks on all of us so that kids can be educated. Seems like a really sensible idea but once we start going down that road one of the questions is is it okay for those kids to be opted out of the public school that we're all paying for and go to a private school instead and then if they're going to a private school should the tax payer money that would have been going for them to go to public school the allocated for them to go to private school and then what happens if the private school they go to doesn't teach them things of use. What if after eight or ten or twelve years in this facility. They don't know how to read and write. What if instead of teaching them science as we understand it in a way. They're teaching them things that are closer to mythology. That aren't practical or useful and that might even be divisive. How do we decide to fill the river of time and that leads to beginning to understand things about capitalism liberty and freedom. Many of you have heard me say before that the purpose of culture is not to enable capitalism the purpose of capitalism is to enable culture in other words capitalism is the special case friend. Told me about the difference between a navy pilot and an air force pilot in the united states air force started. They were the first people with airplanes and there are volumes and volumes and volumes of rules and regulations and the rule for air force pilots in follow all the rules in the books navy pilots on the other hand have just a few manuals and the rule for navy pilot is. If it's not in the book you can figure out what to do. So one is about avoiding getting in trouble and the other one is about finding your own way forward and when we think about the difference between those two when we think about capitalism one way to think about it is the default is everybody can do anything. They want with liberty and freedom to create the most value for themselves selfishness first and then culture community. They have to come up with the special exceptions. That aren't allowed the alternative. The one that has been around for tens of thousands of years is that culture says these are our standards. These are the things that are sacrosanct and in any spaces that aren't carved out. You can do anything that you want. Because that enables the market economy that enriches so many of us and that is part of the challenge that we're facing in our culture today. Which is it is tempting to say that. I am responsible for everything that i do. Leave me alone. But the rivers rivers of time the rivers of connection the rivers of culture and the rivers of rivers are now far more intertwined than they have ever been before and so when we put an idea into a kid's head it will pay dividends or costs for generations to come. Here's a simple example. Is it okay for private industry to say. We are going to discriminate against people like women. Black people people of color indigenous peoples people who have traditionally been discriminated against. We are not going to hire them and we were not going to promote them. Because we don't have to well over the last few generations. I think we have seen that toxic longterm implications of this and we have created this idea of the protected class of people where we say. Yeah you can say. I'm not going to hire left-handed people and you can say i'm not going to allow people who come to my office to wear earrings but no you can't persist in maintaining a caste system. One that costs everyone an enormous amount in terms of justice and civility and potential. No you can't do that but we keep coming back to these edged cases edge cases about who you can serve in who you can't serve edge cases about what the long term and short term implications of using this chemical or having that policy. Should we treat big companies monopolies different than we treat little ones. Is it okay for apple to say. We're not going to allow certain kinds of businesses to be in the app store. Because if they do that then defacto they are keeping lots of people from seeing those apps on the other hand if it is completely wide open then how do we hold people responsible for creating things perhaps anonymously that are toxic to the culture in the world around us and i don't know the purpose of this passes into tell you the answer but it's the more clearly about the questions. Which river are we dumping stuff in. What are the repercussions generations from. Now what will people say if eli on. Musk builds a supersonic airplane. Is it okay for him to fly it wherever he wants. Regardless of how much carbon it dumps into the air is it okay for him to take off with a sonic boom that you hear every night when you're trying to sleep. Is it okay if that sonic boom breaks the windows of your house and you have to pay money to replace them. All of these. Things are on a spectrum and there's no doubt in my mind that two or three generations from now people are gonna look at the carbon we left behind and they're going to say what were you thinking and they're going to pay attention to just how deep inequity was both in terms of income distribution but mostly in terms of opportunity because opprtunity creates new frontiers. It creates connection it creates value and every time we do what capitalism pushes us to do. Which is the short-term expedient convenient thing we might very well be shutting the door on the long-term resilient powerful bit of possibility instead so. I don't know the answer but my hunch is that the more we think about it in the more we engage with the better. We're going to get thanks for listening. We'll see you next time. We'll be back in a second with some questions from previous episodes but first here's a message from our sponsor who when is it time to love. What is it time to learn a new way to see the world to connect with others to lead to engage in possibility. Akimbo is a b. corp and independently owned and operated institution designed around learning not education not certificates not great but learning together. It works if you do the work. I hope you'll check out. The people at akimbo are up to visit akimbo. Dot com slash. Go to find out about their new upcoming workshops and how it all works. Thanks. it's matty base of my. Name's kyle reading. Seth stephen out in madison wisconsin. Hi alicia from charleston. Here on the warm greetings from curious. How much nick ryan from pittsburgh. pennsylvania sent his rex. Hi hi this is. Roberta perry my christian is and that completes my question as you know. I love to hear from you if you got a question about this or any previous episode. I hope you visit akimbo. Dot linked at daycare. I m b o dot l. i. n. k. And click the appropriate button. Three interesting questions this week here. We go hi. Seth charles quarter in montreal. Canada miss people. Thanks for your work listening to your recent rant on education. I find myself wondering how to pull the lever of motivation. While i am a self sturdier and i've learned things from photoshop to interesting financial concepts i've also offered training back in the day. I offered powerpoint training to a whole group of people. And i offered it for free. No one took me up three months later. I offered the same training in charge. A very nominal amount thirty five people showed up part of what i did was offer them half of their money back if they actually showed up. So where do you see the bonus and lever of paying for what you're receiving and is one of the weaknesses of our current. Give it away or the current build it and offer. The free service is one of those weaknesses that money for better for worse remains a powerful internal drive for which people perceive the value and that without a lack with a lack of perceived value people will not engage in the education training learning that. They need to thank you for this charles. The thing is that money is two things not one. It is a transfer of value. It is a way of paying our bills but the other thing it is is a story we tell ourselves a story about the things that we are buying whether were business. Spending twenty million dollars on consultants or at investor deciding that a stock is undervalued. Or somebody taking a course on powerpoint which is free or not free. We tell ourselves a story about guarantees. We tell ourselves a story about getting a refund. Getting a kickback. All of these things are separate from the fact that money is what we use to pay our bills so when you showed up to your friends and colleagues and said i'm gonna offer this course for free when they probably heard his. You're viewing it as either a hobby or a gift and they were viewing it as something. They probably weren't going to take seriously. They decided their time was worth more than what you or they were going to put into the course but when you showed up and said this course costs money you were making a promise. And they looked at the money and they looked at you and they said well charles's the sort of person who would take this seriously if we were paying. And so if i'm gonna shop up i need to take seriously and you can see all the ripples that are caused by this we know that you can take almost all the courses at mit for free or you can pay thirty forty thousand dollars a year to take them in person. Why is it that people who take them for free her so much less likely to finish them. Part of the reason is you. Don't get a degree that piece of paper that magically confers some sort of value but a big reason is because they didn't pay for it so as we enter more and more of a digital age we need to think about not what the marginal cost of delivering something is. It costs nothing for one more person to listen to this podcast so pricing it. That way makes no sense but instead what is the story. What is the story of money. were telling. And how will it change. The outcomes that we seek. I started under here from brazil. I liked her rant about merchants and shopkeepers and one of the things that came to my mind when you raise the status of merchants. Is that english. Merchants in now are were thief's and they stole precious materials and gold from an using slavery as determing forests around the world and of course at a time the english culture might not perceive them as thieves rather explorers or merchants are doing business as usual but now no different have a different perception about what it means and when we come to the recent times i guess many companies might have.

This is his wake people trying to make sense of it. All rivers mother is sitting on the stage. She's cooled rivers friends all around her. This review saw earnest. And the atmosphere's side bart serene river is at peace a guiding spirit. An angel cooled back above. That's what the voices say eight remembering a boy who was barely a man and then there's another voice a note of discord in the harmony. It's comes amongst the accusations and confusion and it spills the elephant in the room. Someone says is there anybody here who can tell us why it took all those drugs. His mother's in shock is two young sisters liberti and summer. Run out of the room in tears. Seventeen and fourteen but it's a question they and everyone else in the room have ost themselves ready. Most funerals are about stories retelling and refining. Who a person was sharing. Memories share the burden of grief with river. It's not so easy is last shoot. He doesn't fade away. He burns dazzling bright and then darkness. He's gone and those left behind are left wondering like an illusionist audience. They can't tell what's real and what's not whether their faith has been misplaced with They've been deceived. Because river doesn't want hollywood's usual. Trappings but then he dies is most cliche.
