"As news spread about the wrangel island expedition, Wilhelm or stefansson was forced to defend himself. He told newspaper reporters that the explorers had been well prepared with adequate food and other supplies. If they had attempted to walk to Siberia, it was because they were exploring not starving. However, as the families of the men received their son's diaries and read the men's own accounts, they began to push back against Stephenson's claims. The family of Alan Crawford published a rebuke of Stephenson in the Ottawa journal, blaming him for their son's death. Stefan's reputation was severely damaged, and he never organized another expedition. In 1925, he published the adventure of wrangel island. Relying in part on Ada blackjack's diary. Although he promised to share royalties, he never paid her assent. The remains of Milton Gale, Alan Crawford and Frederick morr, were never found. Ada black Jack survived two years on wrangel island, and over two months alone, despite having no wilderness survival skills at the start of the expedition. When she returned to nome, the newspapers picked up on her story. They dubbed her, the female Robinson Crusoe. Everywhere she went, people asked for her autograph. But then the press turned on her, accusing her of withholding food from Lorne knight in order to save herself. Knight's parents stood by her and the reports were eventually retracted, but the accusations haunted blackjack. She struggled to make ends meet and battled poverty and illness for the rest of her life. Over the next 5 years, she moved between Los Angeles, Seattle, and Spokane, before returning to Alaska, where she worked hurting reindeer and picking berries. Bennett's health declined again. He contracted spinal meningitis, which left him deaf and blind in one eye. In 1927, blackjack got tuberculosis. Too sick to support her family, she was forced to put Bennett and another son Billy back in the Jesse Lee home for children and nome. Bennett died in 1972 at.

"Ada blackjack starts a fire in the stove. The fire went out during the night, and it's a cold morning. So she looks forward to the warmth. It's August 20th, 1923, about a week since the storm that blew away her umay. Afterward, blackjack was so depressed that she spent three days in bed. But finally, she got tired of feeling sorry for herself. A few days ago, she got up and built a new boat. She's not exactly her usual self. There's a bone, deep, exhaustion. She can't shake. But the feeling of despair has subsided. She hears a weird rumbling sound in the distance. She steps away from the crackle of the fire, to listen more closely. She hears it again and looks down at Vic, who has her ears perked up, relax Vic. It's just a walrus. Now that the fire is lit, she starts making breakfast. She pours seal oil into a pot and takes some dried duck out from the cupboard. Vic rubs against her feet, begging for a piece. Blackjack gives her a tiny bit. She hears the same sound again, but louder, repeating at a steady clip. This time, she freezes. And her eyes go wide. That's not a walrus. She grabs her binoculars and charges out of the tent. She climbs up the ladder to her observation platform, and aims her binoculars towards the ocean. But she can't see anything through the thick, soupy fog. She frantically looks back and forth, desperate to find out what's making the sound. She has a guess, but she's trying not to get her hopes up. A gust of wind shifts the fog. And then she sees it. Hazy and faint, but clearly visible just offshore. The mast of a ship. She slings the binoculars over her shoulder and leaps from the platform, landing on the tundra with a thud. She sprints toward the beach, the binoculars thumping against her side. When she reaches the ocean, she charges into it, splashing through the waves. Her legs go numb in the freezing cold water. But she doesn't care. An unac emerges from the fog, being rowed by a handful of Inuit men. Behind them sits a white man, a parka hood over his head. She can't make out his face. But she sure she knows who it is. She grins and yells out. Gayle. But as the boat grows closer, she sees that the white man is not Milton Gale, with his round cheeks and bright eyes. The man is older, with deeply lying in his face. The reaches her and the man offers his hand. I'm Harold noyce, captain of the Donaldson. Why isn't mister Gale with you? Where's mister Crawford and mister moorer? Noyce looks at her. Surprised. I thought they were here on the island. Blackjack shakes her head. A feeling of dread spreading through her. There's nobody here but me. I'm all alone. What about Lorne knight? Black Jack looks down. Mister knight died on June 23rd. She can no longer hold her tears back. They gushed down her cheeks. Her knees feel weak. I want to see my son. Can you take me back to nome? Yes, of course. Black Jack's legs fall out from under her. She almost ends up falling into the water, but noise catches and holds her. It's over. You're going home. All blackjack can do is cry. Ada blackjack steps onto a dock in the harbor of nome Alaska. She has a small bag of belongings on her back and Vic in her arms. The sounds of men yelling, hoisting sails and loading supplies pierce her ears. The sheer number of people is overwhelming. It's August 31st, 1923. Blackjack has just spent the last 8 days on board the Donaldson in a small cabin. After captain noyce arrived at the island, she spent three more days on wrangel. Noyce and his crew buried lord knight's body. Erecting a simple wooden cross to mark the grave. Noyce packed up all the records he could find, including knights and black jacks diaries to give to Wilhelm or Stephenson. Blackjack's secretly stowed night's Bible in her bag. She promised to return it tonight's parents herself. Blackjack remains frozen on the dock. She feels dizzy. Everything is moving so fast. Then she hears someone calling her name. Over here. Black Jack sees her sisters and their husbands walking towards her. Peeking out shyly from behind one sister is a young boy. Blackjack gasps. He's taller and his face is more angular, but he's unmistakably Bennett. Black Jack snaps out of her trance and rushes over. She hands Vic off to one of her sisters and throws her arms around her son. Bennett remains still for a long time. And then it's like a dam breaks. He clutches her jacket with all his strength and cries. Blackjack rests her head on top of his..

"Harold noyce steps out of an umiak and onto a gravel beach on wrangel island. In front of him, a tattered British flag waves from a leaning pole. Other debris litters the beach, empty wooden boxes, food tins, books, bullet casings. It's August 19th, 1923. It took ten days of dodging icebergs for his ship to make it here. It feels like a miracle that they survived the journey. Finally, last night, the low cliffs of wrangel emerged from the fog. But as their ship drew closer, the island looked so stark and desolate. It didn't look like a place anyone could survive two months. Let alone two years. After cruising along miles of baron coastline, noyce's men spotted the remnants of a camp on this rocky beach. But by the looks of it, the men had left it long ago. Noyce turns to the rest of the crew that's come on shore. I don't see any tents. Clearly they moved camps. Let's search the debris and see if they left any clues about where they went. The men fan out over the beach, they picked through boxes, shake out the food tins, and search for any nearby caves where the men might have stashed records about their plans. There's a mound of dirt at the base of the flagpole. Noyce wonders if the men might have buried something there. He digs and finds a long, thin box. Inside is a bottle holding a rolled up piece of paper. Maybe this is the clue he's been looking for, a map to the men's new camp. He unseals the bottle, shakes out the paper, and carefully unrolls it. Let it be known that I, Alan rudyard Crawford, a native of Canada and a British subject, raise the British flag and declare this land known as wrangel island. As the possession of his majesty George, king of Great Britain. This isn't a clue, it's a relic. Noyce imagines those lost men hoisting the flag, reading the letter, toasting the king of England. He sees their happy and triumphant faces. That was two years ago. What happened since then? One of the crew members approaches his eyes downcast. We've searched everything. There's nothing about a new camp,.

"Almost over, stefansson is getting desperate. He needs to make contact with the expedition before the Arctic Ocean freezes them in for another winter. Today, he's waiting for a telegram from Griffith brewer, an old friend in London. Stephenson has convinced brewer to secure a loan to fund a supply ship. But time is running out. The ship needs to set sail from nome Alaska in the next two weeks to avoid getting frozen out yet again. Stefansson knows that brewers meeting with the bank today. So he's hoping for a telegram bearing good news. He checks his watch and approaches the desk. Has anything come in for Wilhelm or stefansson? No, nothing has come in for you in the 5 minutes since you last checked. The clerk doesn't even look up. Stefansson resumes pacing. Brewer is using his house as collateral to secure the loan. But stefansson fears it won't be enough. More than anything, he just wants good news to pass on to the families of the men. They've been badgering him for updates for months on end. Mister Stephenson, your telegram has arrived. Stephenson crosses to the desk in two strides and snatches the telegram from the clerk's hand. He reads it quickly. Loan secured, money transferred to nome, Griffith brewer. Stefansson leans back in size with relief. The supply mission is on. Soon he'll know the real state of the expedition, and whether his men have been able to prove his theory of the friendly Arctic by surviving on wrangel for two years. But only if this ship can succeed with a last supply ship failed and reach wrangel before the ocean freezes over, again. Ada blackjack walks away from camp toward the shoreline with an axe slung over one shoulder and a rifle over the other. Her belly is still full from all the seal meat she devoured last night. If only knight had been there to share it with her, if only he could see what a hunter she's become. This morning, she killed another seal. This one, her biggest yet. She was lucky this time and shot it while it was still on land. No need to use her boat. But its carcass is way too big for her to carry. So she's bringing her axe to chop it into pieces that she can transport back to camp. With this seal, she believes she now has enough meat to last for months. Certainly enough to keep her fed until Milton Gale and the other men come back with a rescue ship. In the distance, she can see the seal on the shore, right where she left it. She smiles with pride and begins to quicken her pace. Until she hears a strange of familiar sound. She turns and sees a giant flash of yellow and white headed straight at her. Her nightmares have come true. It's a polar bear. Blackjack raises her rifle to take aim, but her arms shake with terror. She knows she can't afford to miss. She'll just make the bear angry. The bear keeps coming. It's so close now. She can see its curved, black claws, and it's a long, white teeth, glinting in the sun. A cub runs just behind it. Blackjack does the only thing she can think of. She turns and runs for her life. She sprints as fast as she can towards camp without looking back. After what feels like an eternity, she dives inside her tent. She curls into a ball and covers her head, waiting for the polar bear's claws to cut through the canvas, and plunge into her flesh. Seconds pass, then minutes. But nothing happens. No claws, no teeth, no growls. Slowly, blackjack climbs out of her tent and up onto the observation platform. Her hands are still shaking with adrenaline, as she takes out her binoculars and scans the horizon. On the shoreline, she spots the bear and the cub, gorging themselves on her seal. Furious, she shoots her gun in the air, but the bears are unmoved. They're too far away to shoot at directly, and she's too frightened of them to come down from her platform. She watches, helplessly, as they devour her kill. Blackjack puts her head in her hands. No matter how hard she fights in this hostile land, it feels like it's never enough. She closes her eyes. And praise. That a supply ship is coming soon. Hey, it's Mike. One of your hosts here on against the odds.

"Freight. I refer to mets. I'll tell you what if you're good you the first tell you that they're good. They were not. I was never never once impressed by his team this year. Did you see the video of frank from his first ever bar story. do call 2017. Sounds like a different person. I don't know if we could pull it. Up was positive. I was so proud of the way. The mets fought back last year. I think that proves that frank is just. He's an objective fan. And so what are you predicted from my voice. I think soon. Will you really believe that you want that. Are they believe it. What did you do. We have kevin's reaction live when you guys lost to the giants. What was that feeling like that. That home run. That knocked you guys out of the playoffs. you know wasn't that hurtful. They just made such a great comeback at the end of the year last year. So band up. You're just so proud that they actually fought back in hard and made the playoffs. Twenty seventeen team has been consistently a disaster. Let me ask you think. Kevin classes too hard headed to ever apologize. I think that he hated wilpon so much that he thinks that it shangri la and lollipops now with steve cohen. But it's not. And and and i hope everyone to the same standard. I want steve cohen. To go out there and show me more than just a few tweets and the talking game where why didn't we. Why did he signed george springer. I mean why do we have a team that literally hits the ball everywhere. Everyone's field you don't do anything different. The mets i don't see any teams even committing errors against him because they just hit soft fly boss. Everyone they hit. It's like the feeling practice against the mets they. This is what i need by feeble. They won for the last thirty two one for the last thirty two with runners scoring position. Do you know what. Pete alonzo's triple last night was the first triple in sixty nine games and i know that. Could you even fit springer though in. The conforto is in the outfield right. Isn't he usually. Oh he's been worst play. He's he's the l. v. p. b. oh the vp literally. He's actually getting better august but yet and that's natural for my photo. Because every time the mets fall out he becomes good again. what what. How many games do you think they win the rest of the way right now. Fifty nine and fifty nine. I think they end up somewhere. Probably around fourteen more wins at at the most got it that makes sense. And do you think if your prediction which you have been right about everything you said about this team while others his office. I've been wildly incorrect. Do you think you'll get an apology from the clemson. Kfc's no job and then we'll have an offseason intellectually actually sell asana did admit mentor. We'll say this off season. Oh getting robinson crusoe next show be like a adding a big back in the in the season and don't want to print out canot baby in the shorts and then they'll they'll buy it the by the line hook line and sinker off. Say no no fucking sucks. And he'll bet two hundred lat next year this'll be off the juice and everyone and he'll be just another feeble met about sums up baseball right now yup. There was this video of an alligator grabbing a lady in like zoo wish area and doing a death roll they call when the elliott rolls over quite frightening put again. I generally root for the animals like alligators being kept in captivity. No shit is going to have an attitude. I think you sort of have to know what you're getting yourself into those type situations. You're going to work with wild animals and stick your head in the tigers mouth. You can't be afraid if bites by toronto. I mean don't tease alligator succinct. That was sink to the point and direct in another point. If we're doing around the horn style. Frank you're loading up the points as bing bing bing bing going up and kevin clancy he's been wrong about the mets on the show he's just negative twenty did he. Did he show up afraid to face. His jews zing. Every time the mets lose he has he's avoided me less. Today's that sounds very This photo bill belichick awesome. First of all like i. I am on the record. People haven't talked heard me talk much about the patriots. Right here is it. But this photo if you don't they won't back to the super bowl after watching that well and i do believe i said this earlier today. If this is like star wars the empire strikes back. Is that part of the thing. I think he has so much to prove. I think the patriots spent a lot in the off season. I think they are going to win the afc. I think is going to be huge for the patriots in this photo. I guess when i saw it i didn't even know if it's real. I guess you're i know you're dolphins fan frank. This has put a little bit terror into you. What are you always scare me. As long as he's around. I i actually think he is an propel team. That's why he wears the hood just like the emperor. Does i mean. Come on a photos off debt. Picture looks like he's about to murder somebody. And if i'm cam newton i'm hiding. I think brady winning the super bowl last year is the best thing that could happen. I disagree with that bitter sweet for light patriot fans but he has something to prove and he's the best coach who ever lived and i think in the long run when they write back obviously brady greatest ever do it but i think now he'll have at least two to three more super bowls with you weighed in on metro and county. No i mean. I think cam is going to be the guy i think. They're going to run the ball and played volleyball ball and and people forget last year with the patriots. He started pretty good. Let's seattle and they got stuff that the one they lost at buffalo. He fumbled dropped the ball going in and he got covert and you can practice. So they know a lot of factors. I think I don't know them ready. I think max look good. But i think it'll be cams team spirit quarterback kentucky quarterback. He's he put a video out of eating bananas. he's like. I'm not afraid of the black spots on the bananas. He was eating the skin. He was eating the whole but he meant that i. I'm not afraid to peel of banana. Blacks boss you know and put those lookers. Yeah this was disgusting looking anna. I thought it was like i'll still eat it. He ate the whole thing. Hank if i recall eats bananas in a very strange fashion also fuck yank good looking kid like oh yeah. He doesn't even feel. It just gets even monkeys. I like kentucky. All i like all sports in kentucky. But i don't want my quarterback in that good look and eating bananas like that's not even gross but that's not even raw blackspot. Let's banana it's completely black. Are you banana. I a little bit. Except sometimes they might be upset. My stomach but hank there was a. I couldn't put in a video of tepco. Brad kept brad caca.

"Knighting markets will be looking forward to some more clarity on the inflation front, where there's a Bank of India did mention they want to see a dutiable drop in inflation before re embarking on the raid. Easing Stan's while there's still maintain an accommodated more so I think that is going to be a bigger concern for the bond markets. Right now, a supply has actually been pushed forward. It's not completely revealed. Actually, I mean, we got what years on a 10 year about 6% of thereabouts, roughly speaking and 6.11 to be precise. If you're a pendant, like tell me what is that market telling you about the economy Because An economy which is contracted as much as it has and is in a dire state, according to most people were talking to Pappy should have lower yields. So you are going to see a couple of things you are going to see an angry mentally want you? Ah, better numbers from the Indian GDP front, although the numbers are going to be negative, So while the first number back in Seoul Wass high or, you know mid single double digits negative, the incremental numbers are going to start receding, so that's one thing which markets will note off. Second is all the momentum indicators are pretending towards slight improvement in the I was leading the pack away. What it remains to be seen. Given that world is still struggling on that is going to be zero interest rate on negative interest rate policy will over. I think India cannot be Robinson Crusoe marooned on an island so therefore the markets are drawing Q. Bad liquidity is going to remain unabated even right now, and that's a very strong ankle, and the second thing markets are expecting is this so called Central Bank put May continue, as and when required, which is a very strong signaling to anchor the bond deals at the current levels. Let me thank you so much for the inside to lecture me I from Kotak Mahindra Asset management and let's do a check on the Indian market as it joins the trading day. Of course, it's been AH makes picture here in Asia with a lot of the markets shot for a holiday. We have the Sensex currently trading up by about 1% gains to for the rest of the index, perhaps getting a lift. Given that the government has stuck to its spending plan, giving some relief to the markets that Now the International Monetary Fund managing director Kristalina Georgieva is saying there's a chance the world economy will emerge stronger from the panda pandemic. Georgie ever spoke to peer to peer conversations hosts and Carlisle Co chairman David Rubenstein. And discussed the whole idea of working from home As we talked today and the IMF headquarters. It's relatively quiet here. That's because of the pandemic. People are working remotely. Are you generally working remotely so on? Ah, much 13. We took a decision. To work remotely. And we have sustained this decision because conditions are still such that for the safety of stuff. We ought to continue to respect that modality of work. Jake has been in amazingly successful. We are doing much more because of the crisis and we're doing it working remotely. But it does have some down sites. But David we would never go back to where we were. We would never have 100% of people sitting here in these offices. We now know that we could be very productive. Working from home and we would be striving. Tokyo Maybe 50 50 60 40 at any one day. Being in telecommute working from home, one of the economists here telling you about the state of the economy in the world because of the pandemic, are we likely to have a kind of global recession for another year, so We have Some optimism on two grounds. The first one is Exceptionally decisive action by central banks and by finance authorities. They put the floor under the world economy. We on our side had done our part for the countries that had no resources on their own. The second reason we are somewhat more optimistic today than we were a couple of months ago is that we see the world learning how to function with the pandemic Still with us But make no mistake. The recovery is Partial Anything on even We're not going to see in 2021 return toe pre covet conditions. And we're seeing Big divergence. Parts of the economy doing career, Lee well, And parts.

"That. War spending or the threat of an alien invasion could actually be good for the economy. Let's take this scenario into consideration if somehow we wiped out all technology and turned everyone into Robinson crusoe or Tom Hanks in the movie castaway, there would be as close to full employment as possible and full employments could right everyone who is able bodied with spend long hours slaving away to feed themselves in any handicapped family members although employment would be high living standards would be low it should be obvious that a primitive situation means a much lower standard of living and a worse economy than industrially and technologically advanced one. If Large scale destruction is obviously bad. Then smaller destruction is bad. Also, it's just to a lesser extent. There is no logical economic reasoning for why massive destruction that turns us all into. Robinson crusoe would be bad but something that's just half is worse or one tenth is worse would somehow actually be a net good but that's Paul Krugman for you. That's Keynesian economists for you. That's mainstream economists for you. That's the people who teach in most universities for you and I would suggest that consistency is key to valid at. Six of course economics may I suggest is not just some dry disconnected field of study livelihoods and lives are at stake when governments impose laws and regulations based on bad economic policies, and this is what I hope. You would understand by listening to these episodes when people in power don't understand biblical economics bad things happen to other people and a lot of people don't even realize that they're bad and that is the tragedy. There are no economy-wide blessings coming from destruction. There are no blessings of the threat of destruction either such as perceived alien invasion. Let's. Look at what the Apostle Paul says in Colossians to eighteen. Now I, know he's talking about the Gospel but these words are fitting even for an economy The apostle. Paul says for if I build again, the things which I destroyed I, make myself a transgressor, and now here's my final question do professional economists who live in the ivory tower no better than those who actually make things happen consider a war is destructive period. Some people benefit from the war for sure but it is at the expense of the other people who are robbed by war these are. The ones who received the transfer of resources, and that is what war spending is. It is a transfer, a forced transfer of resources that is what the threat of an alien invasion would be. It would be the transfer of resources primarily from people who would probably use those resources better toward people who didn't earn them and who would squander them on some useless endeavor. But even if some people benefit from war spending or the threat of an alien invasion, the total economy has been reduced because of the destruction of resources and now let me end with. Proverbs fourteen verse one every wise woman build her house but the foolish pluck at that down with her hands and so I would say that the Bible has something to say for people like Paul. Krugman, and they're crazy. Keynesian suggestions that lying to people and making them spend money on things that are useless and destroy people's lives in the process. This is foolishness and may God help us through his word not to think like fools but to use common sense that God has given us when we think about economics perceived threats of Alien Invasions need not apply.

B. C. says you know China they do a better job of making people feel relaxed did this was bizarre to me so it B. C. news publishes this piece written by a Grinnell college music professor who argues that China is better at making citizens feel safe in the US with this coronavirus stuff going on the title of the piece is corona virus in China kept me under quarantine I felt safer there than back in the U. S. I'm waiting for the robins line and they haven't yet now I said what you get my channeling you all of a sudden can always go back there and live if you want to blind yourself and then you know there's nothing stopping you well I guess there is now a ball I mean the country that sure the state is kind of responsible for what we're seeing right now I don't know about it and covering it up yeah I I don't know if we should be heaping praise on China right now but this is what this person right they say you rightly or wrongly the Chinese state heavy handed approach seemed to work in contrast individual liberty is the engine that drives American exceptionalism there are certainly valid questions about how much of it to sacrifice in the name of public good but our lives a fair attitude priorities prioritization of personal freedom and utter lack of government leadership has left Americans confused and exposed basically yeah China by flying drones overhead and said get back in your house right we should be more like China what we know they're gonna set up camps right they can do that all sorts of camps yeah thank you for the people there were people who were trying to be whistleblowers about this corona virus outbreak and they were put in jail yes they were but N. B. C. news is like this is an interesting take let's put that out see that's the thing at least I'll just speak for me personally reading about corona virus and you talk to these experts and here's how it spreads and then you have the models of how it could spread more if we don't take the action we're taking those things I'm interested in when someone's trying to score political points it drives me bananas and you said that's what the only governor was doing on meet the press they are J. B. provider jelly bean Pritzker yes was on meet the press yesterday and was saying well you know I mean it's kind of weird because the federal government is making me do my job because you know he was on the show yesterday talking about steps that he's taking to curb the spread of coronavirus in Illinois and decided to make it about politics we're the ones who had to provide the leadership because the federal government just has fallen down on this so they didn't advise us to shut down major events sporting events from parades we made those decisions on our own they're they're not the ones and advised us to close schools we've made those decisions on our own so we're on our own out here I wish we had leadership from Washington we're not getting it okay what a jacaranda me if I'm wrong but up until a certain time it was well it's going to be different your response in different areas depending on how many cases you have around your area so that will be up to state and local governments to decide what is best for them yes what a load on a guy's a load this guy is I mean he's he's mad at the federal government for making him do his job I mean it's the individual governors responsibility first and foremost to deal with something like this right thank you by the way I mentioned this last week it was that the casinos were shutting down your leg of the buffets yeah Mike yeah you know can you imagine them shut down the casinos that's when you know it's real yeah they shut down the casinos that's happened yeah I mean there are you're talking about multiple states now I think Illinois is one of them be shutting down the gambling parlors New Jersey New York talking about doing that or they're gonna be doing that MGM in Las Vegas they have suspended operations at all of their Las Vegas properties yeah wow it's going to be really overwhelming to see what the final cost of this is yes how many people are affected I mean it's it's going to be unlike anything we've seen I don't know what to say about I mean you think about like just all these bands that had to cancel tours yeah they always rich rock stars there are some men that live off the during like the older classic rock some of them that were just like had one or two hits and you cancel like four months worth of dates that's what they make all year yeah it's most musicians what they make the money they may gain on album sales it's or music downloads it's playing gigs so it wouldn't be anything if they did like a pro shot showing of like we're just going to do a show online can you give us three box and just sit in your home and watches you might as well try it I wonder if they will strike while the iron's hot job right tried it with the town hall oh gosh oh Jeez you're about that magical Biden town hall who's the virtual town hall yeah the virtual town hall he did it on zoom and it did not go well you know it's always talking about different topics and for one he kept wandering out of the camera shot I mean just look like a lost old man up there and he's talking to his phone and he just wandered around and then you start talking about healthcare and how he wants a public option and man this thing just went off the rails the the public option providing for the additional funding that would provide for no hidden bills etcetera and I.

More on the story of Robinson Crusoe after twenty solitary years on what he thinks is an uninhabited island his first encounter with other human beings.

Who complained they were unfairly treated by coaching staff and inquiry concluded that coaches had mismanaged and embezzle payments due to the athletes who are more than eighty three thousand dollars BBC news. Welcome back to the forum from the BBC World Service. I'm Bridget KENDALL in today where discussing Daniel Defoe's seminal work Robinson Crusoe which was published in England in seventeen nineteen three hundred years ago. Still with me are the defense scholar. Professor Andreas Moeller historian, professor olivet or telly and the professor of English literature. Karen O'Brien we've been discussing how the fictional young Robinson. Chris. I ran away to sea in search of adventure metric, parrots, slavery and shipwrecks and eventually became marooned much is now thought to be the island of Tobago in the Caribbean. He manages to create quite a comfortable life for himself in his solitude. But after nearly twenty years he discovers that groups of indigenous people carrots occasionally visiting the island canoes to kill and eat their captives in gruesome ceremonies on the beach during one of these ceremonies a captive waiting to be killed manages to. Break away and Crusoe helps young man to escape to the safety of his shelter. It's the start of one of the most important relationships increases life. At last. He lays his head flat upon the ground close to my foot and sets my other foot upon his head. And after this made all the signs to me of subjection, servitude and submission imaginable. To let me know how he would serve me so long as he lived. I understood him in many things and let him know I was very well pleased with him in a little time. I began to speak to him and teach him to speak to me. And I I let him know his name should be Friday was the day. I saved his life. I called him. So for the memory of the time, I likewise taught him to say Mazda, and then let him know that was to be my name. So that's Robbins increases description of the man who's to become his new companion Friday. Karen? What are we to make of the relationship between Robinson Crusoe and Friday? It's very difficult to be sure Fridays. Extremely grateful to Robinson Crusoe ingratitude is one of those things that crosses cultures. So he's symbolizing. Inputting Robinson Crusoe on his head that he's grateful and that in return he'll offer to be his slave Robinson. Crusoe doesn't completely except that he accepts a different relationship, which is one of master and servant, but obviously Friday speaks no English. So he tells Friday that his name is Mazda, and obviously Friday doesn't know that that is actually intrinsically a word of hierarchy that intrinsically positions Friday in subservient relationship, and that sets the stage for their relationship thereafter, a little bit later on however Robinson characterizes that relationship is one of foreign child as well. And it's an interesting recapitulation and. Reversal of Crusoes own failure to be loyal to his father and the father of the Fridays loyal to him in some ways redeems that original failure. So we can already see from what you're saying that not only this massive change in the plot from being alone on a desert Island New with someone else. But it's a big change for Robbins increases, psychological development. It's very powerful. And what follows is really a delicate period of cohabitation. There's no suggestion of romance or anything like that between the two men, but there is a blissful period of happiness and Crusoes long period of solitude has come to an end, and he finds genuine companionship in this young man and learns to trust in more more olivet, we see Friday only through the eyes of crusade because this is the first person narrative, so how does he describe Friday to us? What does this reveal? We can read it in several very different ways. It could be read as the relationship between. As we said, the master in the servant, the initial description reads, like a master in a pet for me. It's incredible. Because it's a relationship that is really is one-sided in the sense that it's a description of a fantasy of the fantasy of the noble savage eighteenth century idea of savage who can learn if taught properly, and who you learn to love, and who loves you, and that is quite interesting because from several accounts from plantation live from diaries of colonist, very rarely do we have that kind of relationship. It's a relationship of violence, and subjugation. And that's what it is Andres the first meeting when cruiser talks about how Friday behaves towards him. You know, one might assume that Friday having just been saved from being roasted over fire might show some gratitude as counted down. But you know, the way in which Crusoe interprets that, of course, is kind of. A lot of deeply colonial European assumptions about the other. He says, you know, I understood that he meant he wanted to utterly subject himself to me. But that's of course, cruisers interpretation whether Friday actually meant that we never learn that's quite an important thing to kind of pick up on their but their relationship does develop in different ways. I think as the story progresses as well where they're certainly the master servant dynamic there. But there's also some sort of friendship going on crusade and his man Friday create a shared life together on the island with Chris teaching his servant to speak English and adopt European dress and habits and become a Christian and over the next seven years. They're relatively undisturbed until the day. A large group of cannibals arrives on the island to perform a sacrifice Crusoe and Friday launch a bloody attack when they see the victim is a white man, and they rescued both him. And the carrot man who turns out to be Friday's father. And these to stay with Chris and Friday. So they're little community is now expanded to four. My island was now people, and I thought myself very rich in subjects and it was a merry reflection. Which I frequently made how like a king. I looked first of all the whole country was my own property. So that I had an undoubted right of dominion. Secondly, my people were perfectly subjected. I was absolute Lord. And look if they all owed their lives to me, and we're ready to lay down their lives. If there had been occasion of it for me. So undress here we have Chris Hayes setting up a small society from scratch, according to his own rules. So would you say at this point the Robinson Crusoe could be read as a sort of political parable? I think that's certainly present. In the text, the defer works through some of those ideas that this is a period where the idea of what government ought to look like have been debated quite intensely. In fact, the fifty sixty years before that two and seventeen seventy political philosophy always and back to the early days of humanity to figure out what the right kind of government might be and where political power resides very seventeenth century. Philosophers John Locke, for example, explained that if you combine labor with working the land that Lund becomes yours. And this is kind of what happens on the island here. Crusoes zooms ownership of the island. He works it. And then when other people arrive, they are, according to that logic automatically his subjects, you know, eventually when he comes to agreements with the subjects, you know, the effect usually contractual he protects them and in return their pledge allegiance to him and obedience. So there is the political thread that. Runs through the text. Yes. So it's interesting. Karen, isn't it that he he brings all the tools from the ship, and he recreates the life? He knew in practical terms. But when he has people around him, it sounds as though he's also recreating the society. He knew not trying to do something new where you type, Ian. He recreates it twice. So the first time he creates a society with a pirate two cats and a dog, and he uses exactly the same terminology of being governor and absolute ruler. And then finally got four people, and I think you pay his new pets, and I think we're all laughing. And I think we're supposed to one of the words in that quotation that you just heard is a buzzword for this period. Would absolute Chris saying, I'm an absolute ruler to fo-, we know very well had a horror of the idea of absolute rule us interests has this is a writer whose experimenting with different forms of government. What cruiser has to learn is that you're no one is absolute ruler of anyone else. There is an implicit contract. I will feed you, I will protect you. And in return, you will only allegiance and that contract. It can be broken. So I think cruiser himself is feeling his way towards a different model of government. And we're asked to laugh a little bit at the idea of being king of the pirates SIS catching Daniel defers own political life because he was quite a writer wasn't he in a political writer at that. He was he had a long career which began with an active joining a rebellion against James the second who was the monarch when Defoe was growing up, and he was very lucky to escape with his life thereafter. He was always on the side of a kind of constitutional monarchy where citizens or subjects is he would have said would have rights and that the king's power was limited by parliament. What was very very important to defer was the idea of spiritual freedom, and the implication that has four structures of government. He was a believing dissenting Protestant. So a lot of his campaigning writing, and he was extensively a campaigning writer writing pamphlets books and getting into all kinds of trouble. Ashley for for the things that he wrote. It was really around the idea of religious difference in religious freedom and even ended up in prison for his political agitating. Didn't he he did he was arrested for a crime known as seditious libel shortly. After Queen Anne came to the throne, and this was because he was continuing to advocate for religious freedom for dissenters, and he was put in the pillory, which was cruel and unusual form of punishment in the early eighteenth century. Well, back to the book the four islanders construct a plan for their escape with the Spaniard and Friday's father returning to the mainland to get help. But before they come back and English ship. Appears it's been taken over by mutineers intent on marooning captain on the island Crusoe helps the captain to take back his ship. And then finally set sail for England after twenty eight years, two months and nineteen days on his island. Current one might expect the story to win there. But there's a rather strange final section in which Chris arrives. In England gets married then travels to Portugal to reclaim the great prophets from his estate in Brazil, and then travels back overland to England with Friday experiencing one final adventure fighting off rules on the way. What's the purpose of that? I'm not really sure we've had a sea. Venture a now we're going to have a land adventure? And right at the end of the novel Witold, there'll be more adventure. So it's a bit of a taste of things to come. But it's a very interesting episode where Friday in cruiser crossing the Perez, they encounter bears wolves. So this is a trailer. My yes..
