"I will be always grateful to Miriam schneer, especially for this new book, which made me proud and happy. I mean, of course, it made me furious, parallel to every constraint placed against women's freedom, advancement, even selfhood, but there they all are those women glimpsed filling the world and the millennia with their presence. Even when not allowed to have their own full throated voices. Amazing. So I decided that we need a break in which to celebrate ourselves and our evolutionary slow, inching along. Will they make it or won't they? What do you think? I decided to offer us a heap of good news in the time of weariness and danger. As one friend writes me. Oh, Robin such weariness. We don't do this often enough for ourselves and for each other, you know, share the good things that are happening. We really should. It might give us the balance we so desperately seek, because balance, lends perspective. God knows that to try and live a life of attentiveness and ethics. The M4 is determined to live life steadily and see it whole. Well, these days doing that can instead feel chaotic, destabilizing, even apocalyptic. Toxic nationalist movements rise around the world. Politics and democratic nations become increasingly polarized. Wealth gaps seem to continue to expand and the specter of climate change hovers over all of us, menacing us. While it's clock, ticks, loudly. In our silences. Our world in data and other such reliable websites are to gratitude from me for some of the following statistics, but all of my statistics are carefully sourced. So here goes in a somewhat random manner. During the last two centuries our species has gone from constituting a tiny elite to a world where 8 out of ten people can read and write. Global income inequality has declined significantly. As for life expectancy, according to the United Nations population division, a person born in 2017 on average across the world could be expected to live to 72.4 years. That's the highest number in nearly 6 full decades of record keeping. Fertility rates are falling around the world. That's a good thing for overpopulation, and for the environmental devastation that accompanies over population. Child mortality rates also continue to plummet and child marriage among females who were married or in an union before age 15, shrank from 8.1% in 2003 to 5% in 2018 there is a massive global gender gap in wealth and power that at current rates the World Economic Forum predicts will take another hundred years to close. But the trend is in the right direction that at least. More women now hold government posts than ever before. Comprising as much as 76.3% of legislative bodies around the world, that was in 2018 the last year that we currently have data for. That's up from 23.97%. In the late 1990s. Also both infant mortality and maternity mortality rates reached new lows in their respective recorded histories, at least globally. The United States is unique in its failures on that particular front. The number of people in poverty for which Reed women and children is at an all time historic low. The United Nations measures extreme poverty as living on less than $1 and 90 cents per day. This is an extremely low poverty line that draws attention to the very poorest in the world. But these poverty figures also do take into account non monetary forms of income, because for poor families today and in the past, this is important, particularly because such poor families while many of them are subsistence farmers who live largely from their own food production and you know those are women. The extreme poverty measure is also corrected for different price levels in different countries, and adjusted for price changes over time. That's inflation. Poverty is measured in so called international dollars. As a consequence of these adjustments, one international dollar has the same purchasing power as one U.S. dollar, at least in 2011 that was the case. The last state for which we have workable figures, the majority of the world still lives in poverty, however. Every tenth person lives on less than $1 and 90 cents per day, and two thirds two thirds live on less than $10 per day. But we have more access to pure drinking water, approaching 90%. We have greater access to electricity and 11%. Of global energy now comes from renewable sources wind hydro solar. Fewer people than ever before in recorded history die from air pollution. The total assets of institutions divesting from fossil fuel has gone from 5 billion in 2012 to 2019 11.5 trillion. For the first time in human history. Two thirds of all human beings have access to essential healthcare. Which includes reproductive maternal newborn and child health, an infectious and non communicable diseases. I could go on and on but you get the point. You also know me, you know that I can be pessimistic up there with the best of them. Neither am I some perky little goody two shoes spewing on discriminating positivity and happy talk. After the 5 years we've been through with Trump we should be generous and cheerful to those who brought us those years? But when you think of all the years before then, and the centuries before that, and the millennia preceding those and how all that time each of us somehow merely human women and men alike brought her or his little chip of color to fill in the great mosaic that is humanity. Well,.

"Rumors, and even now. In avoiding vaccines for otherwise totally preventable diseases. It's very difficult to penetrate a conspiracy theorist's mind with fact. Or to highlight logical contradictions in such theories. Such acts can be counterproductive, especially when they're related to challenging the person's worldview or identity. And because conspiracy theories reinterpret dis confirming information, as part of their narrative, and absorb it. From which burnings to anti semitism. From suspicion about the Illuminati and freemasons from the enduring belief in inexplicable conspiracy has increased people's feelings of powerlessness. While conspiratorial rhetoric has undermined democratic institutions and practices. It's an alarming truth that politically motivated conspiracy theories. Bring the same result as conspiracies themselves. That is, that their exists a small number of Americans who wield power over the future. Power that may not account for the will of the majority. It does seem to eventually burn itself out. But waiting is a risk. Better education may well.

"Because in the end Facebook, Twitter, the platforms, YouTube, these are American companies, right? And you don't want to export the roll back of democracy. We're fighting hard enough to keep it here. You know that, of course, Facebook has been up before Congress and is squealing and being very Ely to try and escape regulations. But the tragedy, of course, is that this remarkable tool for communication has been, as you say, weaponized and made a tool of the right and of authoritarian governments. What do you see happening in the Philippines? Is there any way to press it or how can we who are outside of the Philippines be of support to you and your battle there? Because the Philippines is a Beacon of democracy in its own region and as you say, it's a harbinger of things to come. So we need to draw the line right there. I continue to appeal to the tech companies running their platforms to take action to be transparent to be accountable. What we're seeing in the Philippines and we're seeing this in other parts of the world is that free speech is being used as an excuse for posts that incite hate and violence and that's deployed against people like me against the journalists, activists, anyone perceived to be critical of government. So the excuse of free speech is stifling free speech. And, you know, what we're asking for. And I ask directly from Facebook, which is also a partner of ours. We ask that they take action. You know, when Mark Zuckerberg last week said that it could take 5 to ten years to solve this problem in the global south, that isn't acceptable because in our country, people are dying. Yes. So our appeal is, please, you know, these are American companies. Their partners of ours. I know that they created something new, but it's very clear that by 2015 when they brought new groups in to something they called instant articles. Facebook became the world's largest distributor of new. And I think it needs to take responsibility for what that means. Well, you know, they're in denial, of course, about that. Because if they were to take the responsibility, that's a whole other ball game, so they'd rather say, no, no, we're just a platform for communication in people to do what they want. But we're fighting hard here to make sure that there is some responsibility. How that will actually play out. I don't know. Say a word or two, Maria while I have you. Excuse me, I have a dead frog in my throat. Well, I have you about one of the things that got you in hot water was the expose you did of an entrepreneur named Kang in the Philippines who was, you know, in with a with a Duterte crowd and had been involved in human trafficking, and that you got slammed for cyber libel. It's amazing how they project what they are actually doing onto us, and claim that we're the ones who are doing it. It's a complete hall of mirrors. But, you know, you know what's funny about that particular case is that the story came out before the law was passed, so the law of cyber libel was passed after that story came out. So you can't actually use a law retroactively. No. And the national view of investigation, our version, our FBI, the legal department, actually said that, you know, they attach that in the subpoena that they sent us, and yet, despite that, it was moved forward and given to the Department of Justice in a potential criminal case, we're in the middle of fighting that. I can't say much more than what's already been said because of rules of subsidies. But the cases we are fighting are political in nature. It is meant to silence our reporting. We are not against this administration nor are we taking any position other than that of journaling. Our role protected by the constitution to hold our governments accountable. And I think the biggest problem is that these checks and balances in the Philippines have eroded significantly in the last year and a half. And, you know, standing up now, Robin, I don't have much of a choice. Rappler is a startup. We hit positive ebitda in our 5th year and we were doing well until our government disliked our reporting. So we'll continue to hold the line. Hold the line, used to is wrap blue still is functioning as an online site. Or have they absolutely they have not shut it down? No. Although the decision is along as we're fighting it in court, as long as the legal process continues the government, we're still we continue reporting. And we struggle very hard to make sure that our reporting is not affected by the government attacks. And you know that brings its own problems with it, right? Of course. So you are back. Your best is very good, indeed, Maria, my heart goes out to you and my support. And we'll all our listeners will sign on to that site and do whatever we can to support it and keep it going. And please don't hesitate to call on us if there's any service that we can be to you as a woman as a journalist as a fighter for free speech. For my heart, salama. Thank you so much Robin and thank you for picking up the story and we're at WWW dot rattler dot com. We're going to fight the battle. We love your support. Thank you. Time for our last break, but.

"President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines is an authoritarian strongman president much admired by Donald Trump, and he has been involved in terrorizing his country now for some time, he conducted a brutal campaign ostensibly against drugs which has left thousands of innocent people dead. He recently got the chief justice of the Supreme Court Maria Lourdes serene fired. Because she had been his arch enemy as a woman of power. He's gone after powerful women in particular. Not the least of whom is my next guest. Maria ressa is a former CNN bureau chief, and in 2012 she founded an online news startup with 12 reporters called rapper RA PLA R and because it was so honest and with such integrity and first rate reporting, it became very popular, and moved her directly into the sights, and I mean the gun sights of Rodrigo du tardi. It is my honor to welcome a journalist who makes me proud to be a woman journalist. Maria resha. Maria, welcome. Thanks for having me Robin. Well, I'm glad you're here and safe and sound for the moment. You have become the female David going up against the Goliath of president Duterte and his henchmen and the fight for press freedom in the Philippines to tell our listeners the basics of the story and bring us up to speed and will go then from where we are now. You know, in my view, what we are doing is just doing what journalists do which is to ask questions. The hold our government accountable to the people. But as early as mid 2016, shortly after president Duterte, won the election, the month after, we saw this the weaponization of the Internet and specifically of Facebook, the campaign accounts that helped get them elected, then essentially turned on potential critics. And the very first targets were the people who questioned what was happening in the drug war. If you remember in July of 2016, there was like an average of 8 people killed every night. Now, we actually had it down to from July all the way to the end of January, the police initially said there were 7000 people killed and then that was rewritten after they redefined what that meant. And now you have no idea the total number killed. It ranges from 4000 to what human rights groups say as many as 20,000. Regardless it's a lot of death. My God. And he was bragging about it. He was and, you know, I guess part of the difficulty here is the rhetoric of the president himself, and the favorite targets are women. And that became the next targets became journalist groups. And then women leaders. And, you know, fortunately, or unfortunately, rapper has continued its coverage. We are hard hitting we are asking critical questions, but we've also become a target of attacks. First, online, we did a series of how social media had been weaponized by mid 2016 by October 2016, we were attacked and I was counting as many as per hour. I was getting 98 messages per hour trying to grapple with that and deal with it. And then the attacks online went to foreign ownership, how we're trying to take this government down and lo and behold a few months later president Duterte says the exact same thing and within a week, the first case against rappler was filed. So we're seeing the social media landscape. The weaponization of that is the harbinger once it comes on presidency tear to then attack the news group, then government agencies follow. And what we're grappling with is starting January 15th this year as many as 6 different cases have been filed, we've been for peanut next week. I have to appear as a Department of Justice twice. And at least two of the cases are criminal cases which carry jail sentences between 5 to 15 years. And you have this incredibly distinguished journalist career. I mean, you were a CNN bureau chief. I mean, this is inconceivable. I'm accept that it's not at all inconceivable I fear. So now the last I heard was this at the Supreme Court are about to go to the Supreme Court. That's where it will wind up, but right now it's went from the regulatory agency to the Court of Appeals and then from there it would go to the Supreme Court. I mean, I'm hoping we win. But again, this is present to check is the most powerful leader in decades of the Philippines had he essentially controls the executive. He has a super majority in Congress, and he will appoint 13 to 15 justices in the Supreme Court. Are there any vacancies? Now, because we've been relying on the courts here and the courts here have stopped Trump from ultra ultra disastrous things so that he has only been able to do disastrous things. But what is your court situation? Is that basically under his control at this point or about to be? I mean, all you have to do is look at what's happened, right? Yeah. Here's this critic senator Lila de Lima, is in prison and has been in prison for a year. Without the full trial. So we have no choice, but to go up because in my words, you know, I always say we got to hold the line. We have to let our public know every time some of our democratic rights have been transgressed. I think what gives the reason why this change also happened so fast is really technology. And this is where the Philippines is a harbinger for the United States. It's Facebook country, right? Nearly 97% of philosophers of all Filipinos online and you're talking about roughly 58 million Filipinos. They're on Facebook. This is our public space. One that when rapper began, we truly strengthened democracy and it empowered us this startup is proof of social media for social good. But we were also the first to realize that social media had been weaponized. We published the stories and that was when the attacks against us began. And you know, now I watch with horror because it's not just the Philip, right? We're seeing authoritarian leaders in many parts of the world using these cheap armies on social media. There's Freedom House dot org came out with a report that said in 65 countries they studied around the world. 30 countries were using these social media to push to roll back democracy. And that is something Americans should look at.

Yo by that used to have to go to the bank every week. Get cash Yet this year that's long gone as many generations of technology that that have come along but is the bank managing you every single one of the customers by nice again Over time your so. We go through numerous now to the point where we'll right now and it what's happened in the code will in many parts of the world was young pool with you know seeing some of our big banking clients on a regular devices and people thought that pre cover that they had pretty high penetration rights of iran on smartphones. But guess what they went through the roof last year could banks because all of a sudden the banking completely Spliced retail bank The the the that that evolving competitive sh- paradigm shift between the banks and the digital banks and the traditional banks. We saw we actually is to become a stop become one So net will you. People have stopped yemen. This was something. I your head really thought about to be honest but i still into co own australian bank couple of weeks ago and Cash handling has plummeted one of the big reasons to have a retail retail branch which is cash handling a type of people. Don't wanna handle keishi anymore aside. We've move money as become eletronic Yeah and look. I obviously haven't traveled use the last twelve months. I mean in the in the us. Yo you can't go anywhere without a dollar bill but but literally The amount of cash physical cash in circulation this changing so these signs of some of the macro trends that again to emerge for of banking for retailing The consumer good as we stopped move forward into the future. I think of the rise of e-trade is an interesting example. Here before e-trade came up no one would think about buying stocks without a broker with. They had a personal relationship with charles. Schwab was popular. But you would call somebody place the order for you and what we see now is stock trading. There is no human behind it made if we look. Robin hood is sorta z. A perfect example of the next phase of that but you know obviously two generations past banking since then obviously with the kick in the pants from ed even accelerated that process which has been underway for twenty years. But i think you're drawing an interesting thesis here that every industry is going towards that same evolution. It's just the question is how far behind banking are they. Are they right behind banking and that they're going to this more high transactional relationship versus high relational interaction or are they. Are they a few years. Do they have a little time before. That really takes. Hold look I think every industry is every industry is having to think in in the in the world we live in today is having to figure out how mun digital impacts every aspect of business. Today i mean with me ultimately. We are in enterprise software. We sell solutions to begin prize. But i've got a. I've got a lad sales organization in the us and that that now selling to Yeah the now selling to Your c. level executives in big corporations Your enterprise selling young for my whole career has been about face to face interaction and building a relationship of this was a huge paradigm shift for you know for the industry And even in a business to business sick that the implications of digital the will we live in a having a real life impact on a day-to-day vice already You will learn about the efficiencies of being able to conduct more business. A and more meetings and digitally So y- is actually invading becoming an integral part of your the data. Dave way we would. We can now live Anywhere in the world and do jobs.

"This is appalling. The supreme court's refusal to stay the ban which is now texas law is beyond appalling in her fiery dissent justice. Sonia sotomayor called it quote an breathtaking act of defiance and she pointed out quote. The court's order is stunning presented with an application to enjoin of flagrantly unconstitutional law engineered to prohibit women from exercising their constitutional rights and evade judicial scrutiny. A majority of justices have opted to bury their heads in the sand period. Close quote even chief justice roberts with justices brier kagan joining descended quote the statutory scheme before the court is not only unusual but unprecedented closed quote. Especially in that the case had never even bothered to wind. Its way up through the courts where it would have been repeatedly challenged or flatly overruled. Roberts pointedly reserved the right to question severely its unconstitutionality. This unconstitutionality has now been confirmed by president biden and sued by the department of justice nevertheless five arch conservative justices base. Their decision on what they said was there. Pitiable inability to rule on quote complex and novel antecedent procedural questions presented by the challenges to the law even while they did grudgingly acknowledged the quote serious questions regarding the constitutionality of texas law issue. Close quote ya think. Madison jefferson and the other framers of the constitution must be not just spinning in their graves but ready to rise and walk. I hope they're armed with muskets. When they do texas republican governor greg abbott while defending signing this ban into law. Which is already being eyed enviously by other states south of the mason dixon. Line whined that g a girl still had a full six weeks thus ignoring female biology and in replying to questions about why no exceptions even for rape or incest victims ignored incest entirely but proclaimed rape was a crime and he would get rapists off all texas streets also ignoring the reality that most rapists are not strangers wandering the streets but are familiar to their victims. It's the kind of breathtaking willful. Ignorance reminiscent of say mullah omar who you may remember once declare that when a woman eight cucumber or a banana. she was visually performing a sinful. Act punishable by stoning. So here we go again. The afghan taliban and the texts is taliban america's two longest wars because the religious forces of the right wing have never stopped their assault. Since roe was. I decided in their relentless attempts to erode and destroy a woman's basic human right over her own body it was texas back in nineteen seventy-three who's ban on abortion was the basis for roe v wade in the first place. Abandoned was declared unconstitutional. When roh was first baz in texas will have to be taught the same lesson again but the contemporary women's movement is very different. From what it was in its infancy in one thousand nine hundred seventy three both at home here and around the world. Now it's powerful this time. Nobody is withdrawing this time. Nobody is settling. There will be marches to be sure a major women's march for women's reproductive lives is scheduled for october the second but it won't stop there. There will be massive demonstrations if necessary mass acts of civil disobedience there will be new legislation. Enshrining this right. In the constitution there will be public protests until the equal rights amendment is finally passed. There will be campaigns. Nationwide to impeach some justices who should never have been appointed or confirmed in the first place. We will stop at nothing this time because an issue larger even than this specific and basic human right is at stake. The final unequivocal truly democratic inclusion of women and women's rights in vocabulary that vocabulary sings in the constitution that vocabulary sings in democracy itself. That vocabulary is one. We share here. In the united states with our sisters in afghanistan and around the world our homegrown taliban yearn to return us to the stone age to join their afghan brothers and they believe that they are nearing the triumphant end of their long campaign to do so but afghan women took to the streets risking their lives and wearing the audacity of their courage. As for us. We have only just begun. Those are my fighting words and yours on twitter and remember to tag us at w. live.
Trees Could Be a Mental, Physical and Climate Change Antidote

Now there is a growing body of research to point to many ways of dose of trees can improve our mental and physical health. Here's martha bebinger member station. W. b. you are on how and why the tiny sapling robin williams planted thirty years ago towers above her boston home. I raise this tree when i raised my children and look at this look at that. She says there's something about being near this tree. It makes everybody a little bit happy around here when you're looking for strength you can't do better than looking at a tree and there's evidence williams may will be gleaning any number of direct or associated health benefits a longer life. Bitter birth outcomes lower stress levels lower risk of heart disease. Dr howard lumpkin. Is it the university of washington school of public health. Lower risk of diabetes reduced symptoms of adhd proximity to trees is associated with a ridiculously broad range of health benefits. I wish we had pills. That were this good for health. A few countries notably japan and south korea have invested in a practice known as forest bathing which is spending time among trees as a preventive health measure but prescribing time in nature is still pretty far outside mainstream medicine in the. Us from can says that. Maybe because there's a lot we don't know what doses needed. Do you need to walk. Among trees is sufficient just to look at the trees from outside your window. Do you need big trees or do small trees do the trick we you know. We're not able to tease the forest from the trees. Peter james at harvard medical school aims to answer a lot of those questions.

Robin Williams' Son, Zak Williams, on Mental Health
"This. Jump right into this week's conversation with zach williams zach alario michael. I'm great. i just got back from a road trip. And i'm feeling energized and excited about about the remainder of the year in what's become so thank you for spending time with us in your passion interest around mental health and how it fits into the modern workplace is something that feels like a tongue and groove for. We're trying to do as well. So can we start where it started for you and so let's go back. Why mental health and help paint the picture. And you're obviously. Your dad is going to be a major part of your story but why mental health for you. Well mental health for me started or at least thinking about mental health by my personal well-being started very early. On in my life. I had very obsessive traits as a child A lot of thinking involving symmetry and and repetition and That manifested through my teens and early adult life in terms of anxiety and trying to manage obsessive thinking and and that really came to a head After my dad by because i was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder and was using things like alcohol. Self medicate to quiet my thoughts to quiet my mind in. That's wasn't tenable in the longer term for me. How old were you when you were diagnosed with. Ptsd thirty three which was to about two years after my dad died by suicide
Should Discussions of Race Make It Into Our School Curriculum?
"Only thing i'm saying is when you're teaching history to a bunch of kids you know you have to teach at all at least you have to teach the basic pointers and for black americans. The history of this country has been less than favourable. So i think that in the context of that discussion saying and to this day. We still have some problems with race. There are some legacies of slavery that still affect black people working on it today. Something like that. That's a kind of racial ization that i'm in favor of because it doesn't encourage stereotyping. It doesn't encourage discrimination. It just encourages a base awareness of some serious problems. So but that's not happening right. Is that largely what we're seeing through school districts like chicago And in washington. Dc and the entire california school system representing ten thousand schools and six million student. I've seen the of documents on those. Yeah it is that it. It doesn't have that kind of nuance and complexity that you just present right where it's eight. Let me just say this has that part of the kind of ark angel triumphant of the woke ism. Coalition is nicole. Hannah jones robin diangelo. Mex- and nicole hannah jones in particular right the author of the sixteen nineteen project She heretical says that america was founded on slavery. Right and so part okay with that but it's just not true. Depends on what you mean by found this. She defines this. She says the founding fathers were in favorite not true. George washington wasn't john adams wasn't john quincy. Adams wasn't thomas jefferson even signed a moratorium new slaves coming into the united states ben franklin chair and anti-slavery convention in seventeen seventy five. None of these guys were writing x. Positionally how wonderful slavery. This isn't being taught to third graders sixteen nineteen projects little new york op. Ed and you know it's not a see that's where you're wrong. The sixty nineteen projects being implemented at school district curriculum in thousands of school districts across grew. Cross it's not just like a podcast. This curriculum there are principles of the sixteen nineteen project that i think are defensible. First of all we as americans tend to think of the founding of our country as its legal founding. You know but the legal. Founding of the united states didn't really mean much for a slave.
With the Americans Gone, Afghanistan Enters Its Uncertain, Taliban-Led Future
"Robin wright a new yorker contributing writer who covers foreign policy joins me to discuss the unforeseen consequences of the war on terror and the future of afghanistan as a haven for al-qaeda and other terrorist groups. Hi robin welcome to the program. So good to talk to you again. A lovely to be with you dorothy you. I visited afghanistan in nineteen ninety nine when the taliban were in power. And you've been back several times since most recently in march. What have afghans had to say to you over the years about the american occupation. Well of course. Afghanistan is not one country it is a very divided country by ethnicity and tribes bisect. And so they don't have one united view. I do think that at the time of the. Us intervention there was a hope among many maybe even most afghans that repressive rule by religious extremists would end. And a new future would include participatory democracy perhaps a decentralisation of power so that the the divisive provinces would each have more autonomy in ruling themselves unfortunately the government that have succeeded the taliban have all been deeply corrupt and so it was a very flawed democracy. And i think that by the end of twenty years there were many afghans. Even those who didn't like the taliban who were disgusted by the government and that was reflected most of all by the collapse of the afghan army which at the end of the day. Just didn't want to fight for the central government.

"robin" Discussed on You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes
"Like i'll give you an example when the pandemic i started it was the friday of and my girlfriend are walking downtown. Everything is shutdown. There's no cars. My girlfriend looks at me. she goes. This is gonna leave a scar in this country. And i said it'll be over by easter. I was like trump. that'd be over into 'cause i'm optimistic. You know you do that. I'm sure where the toilet paper but yes so. I think it's like that optimism. I love and i hate it. But i'm glad i have any vowel. Said this to me yesterday. We we go through long periods where we go now deep thoughts we take breaks but every once in a while. We'll talk about well. Most of the time we talk about things she was talking about. How fear is love to because fear is just trying to keep you alive. it's similar to the. Don't do that do something okay you it's like when you just listen to the pitch of the voice in your head it's just scary and jarring but what's behind anxiety i and what's behind fear. It's like let's keep this thing. Say i really want to talk about fear for a second. We're running out because this is why people ask me like like i post so much absurd. Shit i post so many things that might get in trouble. And i've been asked like how. Are you not afraid to do that. I'm like are you kidding me. I am afraid all all. I am afraid. I'm afraid all the time. And all i did was i stopped trying to find a cure for fear and i just started learning how to cope with it. And what i really did it was. I stopped being afraid of feeling. Fear that once you stop being afraid of feeling fear any and you just realize that fears that thing that you feel sometimes and then you can kind of turn it into excitement or you can let fear go. I'm really afraid right now. So my buddy is gonna shut down. I'm going to barf whatever. Just let your body do that. Don't judge it. You know what you will survive this fear and so. I think it's like knowing that you will be okay whether or not you're scared. And that the worst thing that can happen you'll still be okay after that and the thing that happens is you die on your dad and you don't have to experience the pain anymore so another until like whatever you do like worrying to me is like it's called magical thinking it's like a superstition. Where if i stop. If i stop worrying everything bad will happen just for laughs is an example of kinky warded off by thinking obsessively so just for laughs was the first time in my life where i was nervous because i knew i was going to do well every other time in my life. I'm like i'm gonna bomb. I knew it was going to do well. And i'm like you're going to do well and then your life is going to change drastically because of it and it's going to be really scary so like my first house self sabotage the state. This is going to be too much. But i knew i wasn't do well. I did do well so it wasn't like this proves that like staying insecure as a safety net doesn't actually work. that's right. You can be confident. You can't accept love. Nothing bad will happen. You would just feel really icky for awhile. You'll feel gross. You'll feel afraid you'll feel like i don't deserve this and whatever just like yourself all those things it doesn't mean they're true and then just move on and he's kind of move on his part of it. I just wrote that down last night. It was like fear is part of it like you said taking mushrooms. You know how much boy it'd be great to not be afraid. And then whenever i'm on mushrooms like fear is sort of the kindling lights the fire that makes the fun. Yes if you weren't a little afraid of the experience you wouldn't have a good time and that's true of life. I think that your fear and excitement like i've heard they were like indices family. It's just the way you perceive them. Excitement is fear without. Excitement is fear with breath statement without breath. Existential king just for laughs. I remember i. I was so i was so snappy when i got in and it's because i was afraid of feeling excited about it so i was trying to talk my way out of it and i started getting like i don't want to do because whatever then someone was nervous. Didn't you almost not go or something like you. Just for a second you thought in my brain i'm like what have i cancelled. And then i'll be like the hero that didn't go to my brain and then someone had to be like you're just nervous. I'm like i'm not nervous too nervous. You're nervous because it might go well. And i'm like okay. You know what. I'm just nervous and afraid then since i let myself feel that thing that i was able to be excited about it and let myself get excited is really is really scary to let yourself be excited about something because you're afraid you'll feel stupid if it goes wrong but then i learned over time like well. If you're not excited that you didn't get to enjoy it at all. So what did that really get you. Anyone that's great. You'll still be disappointed if you think that it's gonna go if it's going to you think it's gonna go bad. It does go bad. You're not going to be like well. I knew that was going to happen. You're still going to be bummed out. Yeah that's right right. You let yourself feel stupid. Who cared. that's right. Just live your life. That's what jad appetite when we were working together. He would say that i'd be like excited about The second season getting picked but it hadn't been picked up be excited because even if it isn't at least you've got to be excited at least got. That's that's how i'm living my life. Now it's clear and by the way this the last three weeks have been like. This is the greatest three weeks of my entire life. Yeah this is. I is the climax was podcast There's five guys wasn't the three weeks it was like it's been like it's funny because i i'm not surprised that had happened but i'm surprised at how it feels you know because i think i learned a wellness center. You're going to be surprised at how something feels because until you feel that you're not going to know what it feels like. That blew my mind because you always try to prepare yourself for how it's going to feel so people ask me like. Are you surprised. It's like i mean. Part of me always knew i was going to make it so. I didn't know that i would have quit and i always want to tell my friends. It's like you're afraid that you know you're good enough for this free to accept it. And i get it. You got to get over the hurdle you know. Nelson mandela believe. Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our greatest fears powerful. That's i got goosebumps. Stole it from him actually. Yeah i'm actually going still that quote in mind. Yeah slurs and i actually believe. I did some googling on that quote once that he didn't write that. but i'm not positive robin trophy. I actually gets changed it this morning. Ma'am ma'am della. Oh my shit. Nell daughter nell daughter mandela.
The Medical Establishment Are Guilty of Causing Confusion With Mistruths
"The medical establishment has been so confused over the last year and a half and their messaging has been so confusing. That people don't know whom to trust and is it any wonder that there are so many people saying you've got to get the vaccine and other people saying you must get the vaccine. I have to say. I blame the medical establishment and the government. Of course they have been incredibly sloppy. They undermined their authority to the extent that half the country doesn't take them seriously.

The Science of Making and Keeping Friends With Robin Dunbar
"Start with a question. I'm sure you've gotten a million times. But i it's a good way to level set for the audience here. What is dunbar's number. Essentially it's the limit on the number of relationships meaningful relationships that you can have at any one time so that includes friends. It includes family most of your extended family. Probably it might even include your cat and your dog and your favorite horse and maybe your favorite soap opera character on tv. If you feel you have a meaningful relationship with them you talk to them you feel that they communicate back with usually of course most of the people your number of one hundred fifty. Which is the core number for. Dunbar's number are actually real people. Of course that people you see on a fairly regular basis. I don't know if you're being somewhat may be semi facetious with the tv. Show thing but there are people who feel. They have an active ongoing conversation with and relationship with god or jesus. Oh absolutely absolutely so if you like a pefectly reasonable Thing to have goto jesus or the virgin. Mary catholic perhaps or indeed i really.

One hundred fifty though originally was predicted of the back of equation relating the size of Social groups monkeys the primates that's the zoological family to which we belong and their brain sizes so species that lived in big. Social groups had big brains and the outta curiosity. I just plugged human brains into the same equation to see what kind of figure it gave. And it gave a figure of about one hundred and fifty and That descent me going looking to see whether this could possibly be true. Because i actually thought it was far too small of role we live in. You know huge cities tens of millions of people. And i saw that one hundred and fifty sounds awfully small for that but then it transpired.

"Of government but the libertarians. The left wing green party. The conservative constitution party and other smaller parties received minimal support and appear on the ballot in only some states most political scientists and historians divide the development of our two party system into five euros. The first system consisted of the federalist party which supported the constitution's ratification and the anti federalists sometimes called the democratic republican party or jeffersonian republicans who oppose the powerful central government that the constitution established when it took effect in seventeen eighty nine. The federalists had grown from a network begun by george washington treasury secretary alexander hamilton pushing for a strong united central government close ties with britain a centralized banking system and links between the government and men of wealth. Although james madison wrote the federalist papers together with hamilton and although he inveighed against political parties madison also co-founded the democratic republican party with jefferson who strongly opposed hamilton and his agenda. The jeffersonians came to power in eighteen hundred and the federalists managed to survive in the northeast. But they're elitist refusal to support the war of eighteen. Twelve verged on secession and suffered hugely when that war ended. Well the second party system eighteen twenty eight to eighteen fifty four followed the splintering of the democratic republican party two major parties were left to dominate the landscape. The whig party led by henry clay that grew from the national republican party and advocated the primacy of congress over the executive branch as well as policies of modernization and of economic protectionism. The early eighteen fifties saw the collapse of the whigs largely as a result of a major intra-party split over slavery resulting from the kansas nebraska. Act the democratic party led by andrew. Jackson supported the primacy of the presidency over other branches of government and opposed both the bank of the united states as well as modernizing programs that they feared would build up industry at the expense of farmers and an agricultural then nation. The third party system. Roughly eighteen fifty four to the mid. Eighteen nineties was characterized by the emergence of anti-slavery republicans and adopted many of the economic policies of the whigs such as national banks railroads high tariffs homesteads and aid to land grant colleges civil war and reconstruction issues polarized the parties until the infamous compromise of eighteen seventy seven which ended the progress of reconstruction. Both parties then became broad voting coalitions with the race issue pulling newly enfranchised. African american men called friedman into the republican party. While white southern men called redeemers joined the democrats the democratic coalition also had catholic emigrants and pro business conservative quote copperheads close quote. The republican coalition had businessmen shopowners skilled craftsmen clerks and professionals the fourth party system eighteen ninety six to approximately nineteen thirty two saw major shifts in the central issues of debate and corresponded with the progressive era dominated by republicans it began after the republicans. Blame the democrats for the panic of eighteen. Ninety three which later resulted in william mckinley. Victory over william jennings bryan in the eighteen ninety six presidential election domestic issues included government regulation of railroads and large corporations the protective tariff the role of labor unions child labor the need for a new banking system. Primary elections women's suffrage and control of immigration. The fifth party system emerged with franklin delano roosevelt's new deal coalition beginning in nineteen thirty three as parties separated themselves out into more specific liberal versus conservative positions liberal opposition republicans such as nelson rockefeller and jacob. Javits gained major attention but lost influence steadily after nineteen sixty four in the sixth party system. Nineteen sixty eight to the present. We saw the end of a historical alignment the so called. Southern strategy shifted southern democrats to the republican party as nixon was winning landslides ideologies diverged further apart with new voter coalitions including the emergence of the religious right and with southern whites voting for republican candidates in the nineteen fifties under lyndon johnson and his great society plan the democratic party slowly. Lost dominance in southern states until nineteen sixty six generally democrats tend to be strongest in the northeast and the west coast and in major american urban centers trade unions african americans and latinos are disproportionately democratic. And in twenty four. It was the largest political party with seventy two million registered voters out of one hundred sixty nine million claiming affiliation. The framers of the constitution intentionally omitted mention political parties from the founding document. Because they desperately wanted to avoid the divisions that had torn england apart in the civil wars of the seventeenth century and many of them saw parties or factions as they call them as corrupt relics. Of the monarchical british system george washington's family had fled england precisely to avoid the civil wars so it's not surprising that he said quote however political parties may now and then answer popular ends. They are likely to become potent engines. By which conning ambitious and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government period close quote alexander hamilton called political parties quote the most fatal disease of popular governments and also said quote. We are attempting by this constitution to abolish them period. Close quote james. Madison wrote that quote.

It was a mistake not to provide for different. Political parties washington ran unopposed to win the first presidential election and chose his cabinet to be inclusive of differing political viewpoints jefferson as secretary of state hamilton as treasury secretary two competing visions for america although madison sided with hamilton in the defense of the constitution.
