The battle over Chinese tech might not change under a Biden administration
"One thing. The biden administration will inherit when it comes into. Office is a trade and tech war with china. President trump put all kinds of restrictions on american companies doing business with china on the use of technology from chinese companies like z. T. weiwei bans on chinese smartphone. Sales here and of course an executive order banning tiktok and we chat that still in court the moves were ostensibly about national security but also an effort to keep china from developing the next generation of technology. Faster than the us. Sam sacks is a cyber fellow at the nonprofit new america and a research scholar at yale. I asked her what. Us china tech relations are like right now. I think it's just creating this. Uncertainty are us companies going to have to choose. They want to tap into essential founding to bring home manufacturing to the united states or they want to choose to be in china at tap into gusty or policy in china. And it's kind of creating a sort of zero sum environment for business. The what does that mean for the incoming biden administration. What might we see. Around these restrictions via administration one wants to shift away from a unilateral approach going to partners and allies in europe. And saying hey if you don't ban away from your networks we're not going to share intelligence with you anymore. I think we're going to still see a hard line. Approach on companies like wow way but the intent is to do it with other countries The challenge here with the multilateral approach is here's a real digital divide across the atlantic right now and european officials have basically said we're just as concerned about the unregulated power of silicon valley companies as we are about authoritarian Coming from china one had bridged. At digital chasm and to there are countries in europe that are really dependent on chinese exports and it actually double down or invest in rnd china interesting so the biden administration may attempt to pursue a more multilateral approach. But find that the isolation is kind of embedded. it's not as global and effort as as we thought. I think they're going to have to really walk back from the isolationism under the trump administration. And also i think get our own house in order when it comes to technology policy european concerns about in the us have to do with things like however regulating privacy and anti and surveillance here. Which sundays are bigger issues than just china. So we have to find alignment on those grounds before. We can begin to work with europe as a counterweight to china. What has china done in the interim to become an even more important supplier to other parts of the world by placing these restrictions on china. Did the us actually force china to kickstart more of its own technology. Chinese government has long talked about weaned off of reliance on foreign technology and they throw billions of dollars in a lot of policy support at industries like semiconductors but then they haven't really succeeded at doing it. I think what happened though. Is the Away these were wakeup calls. That said you know what. It's this is a national security issue if companies like wal wait get embargoed from chips and software so. Let's make sure we do this right. And we've seen as a doubling down on china's efforts to wean off foreign technology. You know maybe time around will be successful. It's been studying in the past though. And then what about strategically growing the tech sector in the us moving semiconductor development to the united states. Being less reliant on that chinese supply chain. Have we seen that. Start to expect it to continue jill really early days. So there's a number of bills making their way through congress which would create more incentives for us companies to invest in our d. manufacturing. At home. you know this is one of the areas. I think where a divided congress might actually make some progress China has had made in china twenty twenty-five baited america. Twenty twenty five may come back around and particularly if you're happy. Gop led senate where they're going to try to block a lot of up biden initiatives american industrial policy might be the one area where they kindergarten. What about tiktok do you think we're gonna get to keep it biden administration probably thanks. There are bigger data security risks out there than tiktok one and two. There's a real concern about the overuse of executive authority. The problem is that it really politically difficult to stand. Our the litigation. That's going on. I think politically will be hard for the biden administration to withdraw that case even if they think there's bigger fish to fry and there are a lot of problems that come with setting a precedent like bannon and appalachia talk. But it's not going to be easy to do. I don't think will be top of his agenda.

Boris Johnson boots out top adviser Dominic Cummings
"For his johnson's first year as british. Prime minister has been a rocky one. There's the pandemic johnson's own battle with covid. Nineteen never ending. Brexit talks and political u turns on everything from free school meals to a lockdown through it all johnson has had his chief advisor dominant cummings by aside last friday that partnership ended abruptly leaving many wondering. What's next for the prime minister and for brexit from london. The world's orla berry has more dominic cummings achieved what few advisors to any uk. Prime minister have done. He's become a household name in britain. Coming did so as the chief architect behind the vote leave campaign persuading voters to say yes to brexit in twenty sixteen. We can say the decision taken in one thousand nine hundred seventy five by this country to join. The common market has been reversed by this referendum. The british people have spoken. And the answer is we're out. The news was a stunning political developments. That cummings largely orchestrated when the conservatives won a majority in last december's election he got credit for that too for the campaign slogan that secured boris johnson. This landslide victory. Everybody my friends we didn't. We pulled it off in weight and monday and this majority we will at last be able to do what. Tension johnson awarded commes with the top job as chief advisor and the move upset. A lot of people because cummings is notoriously abrasive figure with a knack for robbing people up. The wrong way for those who oppose brags cummings is despised but in johnson's own conservative party. Coming plenty of enemies to is stone was abrasive and combative and involved attacking institutions in a way. That was very own conservative. That's david goldberg. A former justice secretary with the party speaking to the bbc his colleague. Mp charles walker says cummings cut off access to the prime minister. We feel we've lost in for the last year. We want him back. he belongs to. She doesn't belong to the advisers. He belongs to the parliamentary party. That elected him but despite the descent from his party colleagues. Boris johnson remained fiercely loyal to his toes. Assayed most memorably when cummings flouted national lockdown rules by driving to his parents home in another part of england and then taking a day trip to local castle what suffering with covert symptoms. Cummings was forced to give a press conference to try and explain his actions. My wife was very worry. Particularly given my is cited c. Which seemed to have been affected by the disease. We agreed that we should go for short. Drive to see if i could drive safely. Who drove for roughly half an hour. An ended up on the outskirts of bond castletown. His explanation did not go down well with the british public or many conservative. mp's but despite all the outrage the prime minister refused to sack. Cummings matthew flinders professor of politics at sheffield university. Says it's not just loyalty. Boris as a kind to me somebody who needs to be loved and actually bought. You had reposting dominant. Cummings was the most strangest sort of good cop. Bad cop political partnership basically domain. Cummings was there to ruffle feathers to be disruptive often that had to happen to shake things up. But boris was never gonna do that which makes coming sudden departure from ten downing street on friday. All the more intriguing. Some are convinced. That johnson's trustee aid finally turned against him but apart from the intrigue many wonder what cummings departure will mean for. The brexit talks with this hard line. Brexit tear no long regicide. Boris johnson agreed to compromise and strike a deal with the eu. Not to flinders. Doesn't think so. Now there are so many big big areas where there is no agreement a tool. It's hard to see even with dominic cummings out of the way whether that could be any agreement and actually the person who is strongest and most of bitten into not negotiating is is boris. So no. I don't think there's going to be southern rapid shift in european policy but former prime minister gordon brown says a deal could be on the cards speaking on national television. He says it's less about dominic. Cummings and more about who's moving into the white house. I think the arrival of joe biden has made all the difference. Icy trade deal coming pretty soon. The government simply cannot afford to be at war with america on the one hand in europe and the other at the start of the new year

"sacks" Discussed on On Being with Krista Tippett
"Look to very famous jewish festivals pause over and tabernacles. It seems to me you know. People can really relate to those passover where we meet as families a very important service that takes place not in the synagogue but at home we tell the story of our ancestors were slaves but we don't just tell the story we reenacted we the bread of affliction. We taste the bit hubs of slavery we drink four cups of wine of freedom and we have matt story onto our children that is universal that is speaks to anyone who knows what it is to be a slave all who needs to know what it feels like to be. A slave said that they can be active in fighting the cause and people who are is another example of a story. That in fact has been the child opinion impact on american history but it also inspired liberation theologians in south america and to some extent. Nelson mandela is accurate the phrase when. He calls his autobiography the long walk to freedom. I mean you know that's Tabernacles to me is such a festival for the twenty century and that one vs familiar to many people assume that is when we recall the forty year journey through the wilderness. When the israelites had no homes that were just essentially like bedouin that we're living in tents or shacks so for seven days. We leave the comfort of home. We build it shack with only leaves for a roof. And so we're exposed to this by dan the coal by night and we just understand for seven days what it is to be homeless. How many of us in the west know what it feels like to be homeless but we need to feel what is like to be homeless because there are a billion people on the face of this planet or pretty near as it gets to being homeless so I think speak with enormous power. And you see why because they're not abstract ideas that you can deliver a lecture. Expect everyone to understand. They are as concrete and specific as you get and i think every religion has specifics like that rituals narratives One one interfaith occasion. We did years and years. And years ago With african bishops was orthodox rabbis and african bishops. We did a lot of interfaith theology and we talked about all this stuff. We adding common and it was wonderful and very boring and i was thinking. Let's let's let's let's break through so in the end a loss last night. i said. let's just sit around a table and have some food and drink and we are going to teach you uh songs and stories and you're going to teach us your songs stories and we went on till three or four in the morning and i think we could've made well peace than on that. He didn't take that i do to kiss. We would put it on the radio. I remember having a conversation with A scholar whose at the university of southern california. We talked about television. There's kind of a renaissance of intelligent television in the united states. Right now and she talked about how this is fulfilling this basic human need. We have for stories but she also talked about the passover story as an example of this incredibly low tech story but that its power that the proof is in the fact that it is has survived and flourished and it receives a different meaning in every generation and so thick rituals. for instance. you know In the days moses the sabbath was a way of giving liberty to slaves but now think of what you and i a- slaves to liberty from iphones. I like breeze. I don't wish to be critical to any particular tricks. And for twenty five hours you cannot get an email. Is that not liberty. So it's humanizing. It's it's it's just giving you space for the things that are important but not so any real. Religious ritual is not just an abstract idea will receive new meanings With every passing age. I'm krista tippett and this is on being today remembering rabbi lord jonathan sacks the former chief rabbi of the british commonwealth who died last week. You've.
"sacks" Discussed on On Being with Krista Tippett
"I'm krista tippett emphasis on being today. we're sitting with the wisdom of rabbi lord jonathan sacks who died last week the former chief rabbi of the british commonwealth of nations. He was one of the world's deepest religious thinkers. He brought his rabbis. I two conflicts at the heart of the twenty first century between science and religion between religious others and within the fraught notion of the common good in many of our societies rabbi sacks also modeled the seeming contradiction between holding one's own convictions while also honoring the sacred and civilizational calling to shared life indeed to love of the stranger. This often entails struggle within one's own community of kinship as he knew his two thousand two book the dignity of difference met criticism from some british rabbis that his ideas about religious pluralism might be heretical. Your theology has been so am embraced and welcomed by other religious leaders and more controversial in your own tradition. And yet i think that's a very common irony of the twenty first century alongside. All of these other things were saying. There's a sense in which on some levels interfaith encounter is easier of cool that you know that. A lot of the most bitter divisions are within denomination phenomenon. How does that go goes because only most intense arguments are in the family and you know why it is because if you have an argument with a stranger. The stranger can walk And therefore they never really get to that level of intensity if she didn't want a stranger to war Within the family you can have the worst possible row with your brother assistant tomorrow and the day off to they'll still be your preference so you never really bad row without really threatening the relationship And i assume that the human propensity to have arguments always fills the available space. You have more space for it with those close to you and yes within the jewish community. Those arguments between all docs conservative reform. Secular jews have an unusual intensity so he is the way we resolve. These arguments eventually in in anglo jury and i think that will probably work melissa. Only what would work for jews anywhere in the world if people were minded to. I'm when i say. Is this on all matters that affect us as jews. Regardless of our religious differences we will work together regardless of our religious differences on all matters that touch on our religious differences we will agree to differ but with respect so we'll work together on interfaith fighting antisemitism on israel on wealth holocaust memorial and so on we walked together across the denominations and there's certain things on which we recognize that we can work together but it is those areas where we do work together that allow us to build up a real personal friendship. Iron you've compared the beginning of the twenty first century To the beginning of the seventeenth century europe in terms of religion. But i also think this is one of these remarkable moments where it's not it's not just religious change it's changed. We are redefining institutions. The definition of what it means to be human so a lot of the most difficult rifts within us religious traditions have to do with moral issues. And you've written some very interesting things about that. You've said that the twentieth century saw the collapse of moral language so in fact even as we are forced to take up these very difficult intimate conversations. Think that's an interesting vision. We don't have as rich and complex vocabularies. We need so say some more about that. What will you know. The will always attempts to find a scientific basis for morality They gave rise to all sorts of theories light. Chem conce idea that it's moral if you are willing to prescribe for everyone what you prescribe yourself and there were a lot of these. Quays is scientific on logical systems. They finally said they can't really be any moral truth out there or any single moral truth and that is when we moved tomorrow relativism. Now moral relativism seems to be the most tolerant form of morality. You do what you wanna do. And i will do what i want to do. However it actually leads to enormous intolerance because if there is no objective standard of morality. How am i going to show. I'm right and when that happens. It is the loudest angriest rudest voice that wins. And i that come back to this complicated notion of this dance between what is particular. And what is universal. I mean you know you. You said that the bible argues that universalism is the first step not the last the growth of moral imagination short. But i think you're also saying that. The most vibrant contributions plurality to civil society in fact is having a vital strong particular identity. Of course it depends how it's expressed but at that in fact is the best hope. For for the sake of what is universal. I mean listen. I i can't say honestly at my extreme age that i am seriously into rap music but there's Jewish hussy grab singer called yahoo and he's got millions of young fans most want jewish. Now you can get more particularistic. Louis jewish then montes young jewish and everyone can relate to them him jewish non-jewish because you know when you really reach the ferry depth particularity that all of us can relate to him. Oh that's the big. It's a gift. It's a gift you know. And i don't know why it is but you know it's it's it's just you know an is comes along. He delivers his provinces. This oh particular to that faith. Fat pleased that time and yet i call is The poet laureate of hope. And you you know at the height of martin. Luther king's i have a dream speech at the very high to there. Is quoting verbatim. Two lines from isaiah chapter forty the king james translation. I doubt whether is twenty. Seven centuries ago in the middle east could envisage that one the black civil rights activists by his words. But it's the particular hierarchy of desire that spoke to martin luther king. That's how we are as a people in a. I don't know why it is how it is. But it's the authentic. The unique the different that makes us feel enriched when we encounter it and it's this bland. plastics synthetic universal. Can't tell one brand of coffee from another brand of coffee that makes life flat uninteresting and essentially uncreative. So i wonder is this. One reason That so much of religious revival tends to happen at the conservative end of the spectrum at the orthodox end of the spectrum because that's where these particular areas are cultivated were the flame bonds that its most intense. So talk to me. About as an orthodox jew as chief rabbi Talk to me about some particularities specific virtues teachings someone. You've been getting some of this that you that you honor and that are at the heart of your faith that That you think are particularly important and relevant to offering up to our common life. In the twenty first century.

"In divided times. Start in this place with everyone. I interview whoever they are. They're quantum physicists or Feel odin and i. I just wanted to hear something about the spiritual background of your childhood. Did you have a devout jewish upbringing. I was the oldest of four boys. my father who had come to britain as refugee from poet at the age of six had to leave school at the age of fourteen so we never had an education not jewish or secular. Mama had to leave school at the edges sixteen so my parents didn't know that much what they did have was a great love for judaism. And you know. I tend to think that's probably the gate greatest gift you can give a child. Words said it beautifully. What we love others will love and we will show them. How and then so did you surprise yourself. Did you surprise your family by becoming wrap yourself. It was a surprise to all of the see. I'd absolutely no intention of becoming around my. I went to university to study economics and philosophy but in my first year The six day war happened now. We don't know in retro. We can't understand. In retrospect quite how tense that was the build up to it and we born after the holocaust felt. I think all jews around the world felt that was a real possibility. God forbid of a second holocaust and then of course won't happen with these astonishing speed And there was a sense of exhilaration. But you know. I had been really shaken up by this. And i sorta began very slowly and over the years to delve more and more deeply into the question of what it wants to be a jew not intending to be a rabbi just to get deep to the roots of this faith and this four thousand year old tradition. And that eventually led you to this. Vocation i I did also meet some quite great rabbis. Sadly no longer life in particular rabbi menachem. Mendel schneerson lubavitcher Who is one of the great leaders of modern times and he was the one who actually told me to become a rabbi. And i respect him as a man of global vision and so i did it and i wonder if when you became chief rabbi nineteen ninety-one if It would have surprised to that at this point. Ten years into the twenty first century or even just a few years into the twenty first century religion had risen so utterly to the surface of global life no actually In one thousand nine hundred ninety. The bbc asked me to give the wreath leeches. They given one year. They're six lectures on radio. I give them by bertrand russell in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. I was only the second religious leaders to give them. And i call them. The persistence of faith It was probably the first response to francis fukuyama vision of the end of history. The berlin wall had fallen. Soviet union collapsed and of cold war. Everyone was seeing What he foresaw is the you know seamless spread of liberal democracy over the world. And i said no actually. I think you're going to see faith. Return and return in a way that will cause some problems because the most powerful faith in the modern world will be the faith most powerfully opposed to the modern modern world so that was in nineteen thousand nine hundred years before i became chief rama and nothing has happened since has surprised me though. It has saddened me. Religion is a great power. Anything that powerful can be a force for good or god forbid for evil but it certainly fraud and dangerous a needs great wisdom and Great if i can use this web gentleman and so i'd like to draw you out on how jewish experience and jewish tradition know what resources and vocabulary that might bring to the to the global moment which is not merely uncertain but certainly marked by change which is stressful for human beings. One of the ways. You've talked about that. Not uncontroversial is about the approach. Uc deep within jewish tradition to difference. Yeah it seems to me that One of the things we most fear is the stranger and at most times in human history most people have lived among people who mostly pretty much the same as themselves today certainly in europe and perhaps even in america won't down the average main street and you will encounter in ten minutes more anthropological diversity than a an eighteenth century. traveller would have encountered in a lifetime. So you really have this huge problem of diversity a new then go back and read the bible and something hits you which is with very familiar with two great commands of love. God with all your heart solan all your might love your neighbor as yourself. But the one come reiterated more than any other in the mosaic bonk's thirty six times said the ram is is love. The strange for you will want strangers in the land of egypt or to put it in a contemporary fra away. Love the stranger because to him your stranger and this sense that we are enlarged by the people who had different from us. We are not threatened by them. That needs cultivating camby cultivated and would lead us to see the twenty first century as full of blessing. Not full fare. One thing that. I'm struck by in conversations. I have with scientists with neuroscientist with clinical psychologists for first of all is how science is now able to demonstrate. Maya logically is that it is when we are able to see the other to see the welfare of the other as somehow linked to our own That that we're able to rise to these to these moral ideals and in that context do you have an experience of in your conversations and in your work presence as chief. Rabbi these years of a new conversation starting where you can in fact offer these virtues to the twenty first th century and a new way. Oh show i mean you take know. I'm i'm really not very good. Sort of operating machines. And so i fall back on. That ole for his win oils fails read the instructions and here we are reading those instructions fresh through the eyes of quantitative and experimental science and discovering what the great of wisdom was saying three or four thousand years ago. We now know That it is doing good to others a network of and supportive relationships and a sense. That one's life is worthwhile other three greatest determinants of happiness. And you know somehow our against our will. Sometimes we are being thrust back to these ancient and very noble and beautiful truths and that we can now do so in fellowship oakwood paps and embarrassed between religious leaders and scientists and social side and different kinds of religious leaders right across traditions as well totally. I mean the thing that really for me. Change the what my life. It was standing at ground zero. You know couple of months afterwards in january while it was january two thousand and two together with the archbishop of canterbury on religious leaders throughout the world. And we were looking at this wreckage the sheer harm that hate can do and yet at the same time he will heal from many of the world's if not most of the world's faiths in friendship fellowship and shed prayer and i just saw how clearly that is. Those are the terms of the equation. We do we go that way or do we go this..

Trickbot is Down But Not Out
"So what are. What are the efforts. Been to take trick but down and how has how people running. That net responded one of the things that i sort of want to get ahead of two is. Our data suggests that This review campaign is not in re in response to trick takedown efforts. We saw domains Being registered in august for this campaign Certificates and servers being stood up a couple days prior to the first trick bought disruption Now i think it's a little silly to say that they're not related. You know if you're preparing to I guess engage with someone in a you know wreck your car or something like that. You're going to be more aggressive. I would imagine. But i don't think it's one to one trick Trick take downs led to this. The first of these A us government entity is alleged I don't know if anyone from that area or that entities confirmed but they pushed in a in a very clever way Pushed faked configuration updates to trick of victims effectively. Cutting them off from the botnets. Which was i think. I think it's been a little bit undersold. How cool that is. They were able. They knew enough about how this maller operated function. You know we're able to be their government entity They have the legal right to do this. Compromise at least some portion of their network and their infrastructure to then push these fake updates to effectively poison the their implants. It's fun it's funny calling it a takedown attempts because when it really did is severed ongoing intrusions to me is a little bit more effective If you have like a day to do something because we've seen over time is really really tricky cutting off current infections and buying those victims some time who knows how many more ransomware incidents we'd be looking at in late october early november had that not occurred And i think that that occurred on september. Twenty second in the next couple of weeks after that Microsoft put out legal proceedings that they basically went to a judge and got the rights to seize a trick dot command and control servers. Initially this was just in the us but microsoft's lawyers seem pretty good and they were able to sort of lead what what was an industry coalition Lumine and e set and symantec on. Fsi sack was also involved To push all that grab identified you know trick bots both tier one and plugging infrastructures. Which are sort of the initial communication and customer management infrastructure and then sort of The secondary infection management infrastructure to add plug ins move laterally etc. They were able to seize roughly ninety six percent of the botany of botnets command and control servers which turns out to be a pretty limited number. Compared say you know older or bigger botnets which again is they did this on a Pretty interesting Legal reasoning in that dietrich authors had abused microsoft trademarks in their code which is pretty unique and and it seems to be a clever legal way of being able to action against these actors and again i i know that some our industry have a sort of said that this effort hasn't been effective. I would argue that. It has taken down. I don't think that microsoft and e said these other companies have sat around and said you know try this. I think that it's a calculated move and so in in the wake of that you know. Obviously that probably meant a number of you know their control. command control. infrastructure is messed up for lack of a better term It probably meant a loss a number of infections and so from that. We've seen the botnets Battle back a microsoft themselves stated that odd they don't expect the botnets disappear they expect a fight and so we've seen trick Back to a command and control infrastructure. That wasn't taken down and some of their They've created more infrastructure but they're pushing it out at a much slower rate than they were before when they've been trying to spread and you know get new infections since this on predominantly through email spam they have at is another very very large. You know one. Of the most prolific spam senders in the world. They they sell access as a service and in a lot of instances. Since the trick takedown efforts began Email ted has been observed dropping trotz usually or historically there have been anywhere from thirty to forty servers embedded into trick bots configuration So it's an encrypted file that trick about reads once it executes on victim host and then tries to connect to one after another to see you know if any are online and then once they're online they sort of get instructions from there and then you go about their their evil business. What's changed is as a number of those servers have been taken off. Line the amount of services that we've seen included in every configuration has dropped significantly I think it dropped to a minimum of around twelve servers And then jump back up to around sixteen. The last time. I checked i was about two days ago. What's interesting about including all those servers is that it does tip to us. They at least that they have some amount of control left on the servers. They've they've played a little bit with the protocol that they use to communicate They've used Instead of traditional servers they've used a tour onion sites of the alleged dark web server not available Not accessible normal web browser but requires using a tour browser or a tour based connection to connect to it using that as a fallback command and control channel. And so it's been it's been pretty interesting watching them scramble. The sort of piecemeal their botnets back together.
Tom Brady has one of the worst games of his career in record loss
"Speaking of great people in their in their in their world and their business and everything else. I think drew brees made a little bit of a statement last night right. Yeah absolutely. I mean that saints team is so up and down and i don't know what to expect from them but then performances like this week one performance against the buccaneers. They like they could be the best team in the nfc. They can make a super bowl run so tom. Brady's two years older than drew brees. And you tell me that drew brees can't play for three more years. He's going to retire after this year. He is. He's made up his mind he probably could. But he's gonna retire fisher. I'm he's already got a deal to be in a booth already doesn't he. Yep see i think. I think they would start with college football and then let chris do chris. Collins wrote goes long as he wants but You know my thing is why why. Why leave when you play like that. I mean that last night he was slicing and dicing he only had six incompletions at a thirty two attempts draw for a lot of yards but he was highly accurate he was officiant. He only got sacked. Once did not throw an interception. And i and tom brady look like completely like he was forty three years old and was making decisions last night and he was off last night horrendously. Yeah if the season ended tonight and drew decision about if he's coming back or not it'd be a little bit harder to say all right. I'm going to hang up. Because i played so well but we'll see how it ends. I mean always seems to end outside of the one super bowl year in some sort of devastating playoff loss for them. And maybe just doesn't wanna do anymore. I mean tom. Brady looked like he was lost last. Yeah i know i know. It's not a cause for concern for me. I think you'll be fine going on because they still have seven games left. And they'll be there in the mix but if they're not in the mix just let's just hypothetically say he makes it through sixteen games. He's not hurt and he's not in. They're not in the mix of the playoffs. Men all this off season crap that we've read about the practices at the high school was bringing antonio brown back whispering. Bring back all these things that he wanted man. That's going to be a bad luck.

"You know most founders. Are like you know policy wonks, which is which is to say bad politicians right? They just want to talk about. The. The same way that a policy wonk would just talk about policies and not the larger. Framing. I think most founders just want to talk about their features and. I think point you've made is look until you articulate the problem. And then why they care about your solution. Note no wasn't a care about your features except for the super fans you've already got yep the you know the one that has sort of screaming in my head and I just wanted to see when he said it, it was October Twenty, eight, nineteen, eighty. This is the exact seminal reason in my opinion why Ronald Reagan became president. Because, there was no framing of really want this election was about and the minute he said. This is about are you better off now than you were four years ago? Right and most people at the time with the energy crisis and the hostages and other you know the seventies or a lot of was a lot of turbulence going on right right and so he frame the conversation that way at once he did Carter was toast right or Bill Clinton saying it's about the economy. Stupid you know. That was very interesting. Thing is at least thus far nobody has framed this election season in that way, right? Yeah. It's hard to think of like the one line. Thing I. Guess the maybe the One, the one liner that I think trump is sort of running with now is the framing I campaign is that Biden is a Trojan horse for you know for for the radical elements of his party. I mean that's sort of the popular whatever and that that that is definitely what he is campaigning on what? Biden, gases campaigning on it. I guess it's sort of like a return to normalcy. but but it does feel a little bit like the personal branding thing that Hillary didn't thousand sixteen where say mistake? Yeah where it's like You should vote for me because of who I am and I'm not I'm not the other guy and. And he's not really making. The case for for what exactly he would do. You know and I and I, and he's and he's not really giving the sense. That he's in charge you know right now of of his campaign or or anything and so. Yeah I think by needs to do now more than anything is to come forward and say look I'm in charge here. Not. Not. X Y and Z you know and here is what? I stand for and here's what I would do. and He needs to the point of your article one to find larger cause and to articulate the problem that causes addressing and I was stunned to see but it's a mistake the Democrats make over and over and over against shouldn't be done. But it's like they keep making my fuck aren't aren't you going to learn. They have no point of view and so the slogan currently is build back better. Right, that's exactly the same as Hillary. I'm the most qualified person for the job right to your point a return to normalcy. Well, you know that's going to resonate with some people, but that's a brand conversation. That's not a mission. That's that's not a point of view. That's not that's not something that we can get fired up about that's not even hope and change from the Obama era So a nobody really has. Framed this problem yet and be neither. One of them have articulated emission trump was a master at it the first time around and I'm quite shocked that he hasn't figured out what the to Dotto version is of Maga- but but keep America great didn't really fly given.

The opportunity to continually interest rate, and so I guess it'd be more like a TV show or something like that. You can make it better. You can you know after your premier, you can't gauge the reaction to it. Then start to adjust and and so smart founders are always paying attention to the reaction they're not.

So you've been doing a lot of thinking and you're this great piece on movement marketing, which I of course agree with very much. But I thought you were incredibly thoughtful, and in a way you put it together. So tell me about movement to marketing. Yeah Well, it's I. If you look at the the founders who have built great companies more than great companies, the the really transcendent companies. They seem to have done more than just create a company or even a category, but they seem to have created a movement around their their company. and. So I started thinking about wh why is that? It'd be you know it's it's folks like you know Elon Musk at Tesla or remark many often salesforce they seem to to stand for something much larger than just a company you know at Tesla it's about moving the world sustainable energy. So even just about electric cars, it's about this larger mission of of moving the world to a sustainable energy and sales forces always had this mission. Of You know not just Sierra or sales of marketing software or getting better like go to market, but at moving business to the cloud. And when you hear these founders talk about these things you know it's it's just add like a different level. It's much more up leveled and inspiring than what you typically hear from startup founders, and so I started to think about what is it that makes them so effective at marketing and you know some of these thoughts are inspired by you know things. That I did as a founder, CEO Hammer, and some of them were learned from reading betting offs book, where he describes the tactics and some of them I have gotten from you and so I kind of you know synthesize all of these things into kind of thirteen point blog and it seems to seems to have caught fire in a very ah.

Was Correct Sephardi. Yes, and then they got they basically. Created, a little honeypot. They knew where they knew apple would be pissed off and throw them off the store and they were so ready for that that they had. In less than a day, they had a pretty on the news video about nine, hundred, eighty, four, nine, and these. Apple and Google just just totally you know. Out of the blue. It's what's your take you follow this stuff more than I do what's side? Are you on boys like what was going on here at there's there's no sides it's two. Billion Dollar Company. Oh well, sorry bill. I just saw that and I was like, oh That's a lot of money. there. Jeff Basil's Oh. I mean my my my take is it's sucks for. All consumers that's I didn't actually think we're going to do this. It sucks. We'll also there's there's so much. Part of the thing is like like Jason said and like I think a lot of people say I liked it the APP store. That's the stuff that's going in there I wish they vetted more. I. Wish I didn't need something like Guardian to be making sure that people aren't. We juice all the time like I. Don't like the stuff that gets on the serpent. It's good that they do what they do. I think part of the problem part of the confusion and part of the. Injustice unfairness are all these different different rules for different kinds of APPS for different kinds of companies, and then on top of that, some kind of parent sweetheart deal if you're APP is as big as net flicks or if you're a quote unquote reader APP, whatever that means there's all these ways we're like anybody I mean Jason Nailed it to me, which was the example that. Most nails it for me is. I don't recall comics anywhere like I used to. I. Barely read comics at all but you know five years ago when my kids were like living in the world of marvel. When they morning, she come in bed lights off we cuddle. She'd have her hot milk and we'd read whatever had arrived that morning, and then sometimes, I'd want to buy something right off about the college and then at one point they said Oh hey, by the way. Here's an for reading your comic. Sala. G Comics. And you're like, okay. Well, how do I buy my comics comics and they return? No because you're not easily implicit or explicit gag order you're not even allowed to talk about how you get content on your phone. If you'RE NOT GONNA pony up the thirty percent, you can't have links. You can have explanations rate isn't that that's all strictly verboten, right? Yeah. Well, at least for little companies because suddenly like Amazon. One. Hundred. So you can use the Amazon APP to by Amazon products. Can you buy kindle on the Amazon on the Amazon? Like a APP I. Don't think you can't do you cannot, but you have to go to the web correct but you can't let like they now have the sweetheart deal where you can link to the those books and for some reason though that is a that's a pretty sweet solution. Yeah Woohoo. But now audible credits you can buy an Ios I. It's very hato Credit I. Still Understand I've never quite figured out how where, why win money gets spent on my playstation especially, it's super confusing to me because like you have to you have to go buy Bitcoin for it right you can't just it's really weird about how it processes money, but but the point being that I. I. Think the problem is yes hostility toward the consumer it's a bad consumer experience to not let people be able to. Buy Content for content driven device. On the on the this huge popular mobile platform. But also I think there's a case to be made the inconsistency of how those rules are applied is really lame to everybody. Yes. Including consumers but you know I. It's sort of like I do tend to who I side with. It matters not aside but but you know I was Gonna fix their shit man they're going to get. They're going to get the you do not want to be.

You get some of the shows in this feed and some of the other shows in that feed. and. It's also very confusing to me that like our previous annual member episodes with for example, you or todd are not in the new member feed their in the other member feed, and that's a separate purchase just simply pay a separate fee and it's very confusing to people.

And we're learning about that and there's also you know I don't mean to be all president trump. But like there are some problems with the way, the H.

"Wow now I'm Michael Silver Blunt and you're listening to bookworm from the studios of KCRW. I'm talking with Lawrence Weschler about his new book book. And how were you doctor. Sax a biographical memoir of Oliver Sacks will continue after this short break. I'm Michael Silver Bullet. This is bookworm. And I'm talking with Lawrence Weschler about his new book. And how are you Dr. SEX ABIDE GRAPHICAL MEMOIR OF OLIVER SACKS was published by Fars Crowson. Sheru we're discussing the possibilities within writer -Ly Nonfiction now tell me you were writing rider we nonfiction before there was a name for it before it needed naming But when you are talking talking to students how do you tell them what it is. What is it well the the class I teach is actually called the fiction of nonfiction and I am action of nonfiction and I am interested in an all the fictive elements of nonfiction writing? So I take for granted we get in the first in the first two or three classes. We're talking about fairness accuracy. We are debunking the notion of objectivity for sure but I by the way insist on a first person voice not out of Meglomania but out of modesty which is to say that you use the word I because if you had gone to Bosnia you would have had a different experience of Bosnian. While I was there this is what I saw And you are try. And and so the elements. I'm interested in beyond that though. are things like form structure irony Voice tone freedom They're here by the way for example to paradoxes. That are interesting when you when you're doing this One of them is the paradox of form and the other one's the paradox of freedom. The paradox of form warm is that as we all know everything in the world is total. Chaos is complete happenstance. It's the you know everything. Is You know it wouldn't have happened if this had happened. And it's just all of that. Is there but people can't handle that and they don't say they don't want to read that they want you to impose a certain form I'm on it to give it you know it's like that but here is a form in which I will deliver it to you and so forth which is necessarily fictive that's is on one side on the other side is also true equally true that everything that happens happens exactly the way it had to happen otherwise it would have happened. Some Mother Way and part of your job is to come up with all the reasons it happened that way but it is equally true and this is the key and this is what you really have to emphasize the people that as it was happening. If you're talking about human beings everybody was free to act in any other way at every step and you have to keep that Atalaya five to one of Offer saxes early books before he became very famous was a book he worked on for a very very long time. Called a leg to stand on and he e- you talk to one another about what kind behind of book this was and you eventually. I think coin the term rhapsodic episodic nonfiction no what is excited nonfiction. Well just to back up very quickly The first four years I was hanging out with him. I'm in New York in nineteen eighty four He was known he and he was untrammelled in this horrible horrible writer's block around this book which which was the directly because of how awakenings had not been believed but when I talk about rhapsodic nonfiction. This is a particular thing which he shares with Kabushiki for example sample which is that? They voted rate book. When the emperor on Highly Seles a great great great Polish writer and in both cases yes they did a kind of daily riding in the case of cup? Kinski back in the seventies. He wasn't just the one of the great foreign. Correspondents Silence of the Polish Press Agency. He was the foreign department of Polish Press Agency and he would go all over the place and he would do daily journalism in the same way Oliver. Now think about this. Oliver wrote five hundred words on every patient. He saw every day he'd go home and he type finger poking and that you do this kind of daily reported on what was going on but then years later in both of their cases and there's some other cases to some degree this book as well they returned to the same subject but in a different register. It's kind of the register of the case. A couple Shinsegei sometimes imagined him. With a snifter by the fireplaces said and by the way if you remember the emperor begins the first sentences in the evenings I would seek out the courtiers of the former palace. Alice in other words in the daytime he was a reporter in the evenings. He had this kind of secret life and it was back then and he would talk about your ten years ago. It happened like this and it would be turned turned into kind of story and I think that's very much true of the tales that Oliver tells years after the the heat of of the drama and and that confuses the story. That's what I'd be rhapsodic on fiction. The he sings the song in a different register. Every time on Rue was available. I would have him on not because he was writing literary fiction and he certainly didn't publish his own poetry bought. What we were seeing was the distal? `Let of the literary and the poetic and what was so beautiful was yes the first time. It was an neuro science book but then we talked about ferns. Indeed written a book about traveling in South America examining firms for the National Geographic. Then we talked about music music and then we talk because he was so interested in music he would of necessity become interested in people who couldn't hear music. He wrote a book about the tough and every time I could I had him on because there was a moment when his eyes would focus and unfocused and he would be in a condition that I can only describe as rapture because I always thought of him as something like a sea otter in his shape. And you reveal that he regards boards himself as amphibious creature more water than of land. He early on he said shall we go for a row. And I was kind of like the Damsel with her parasol with my notepad in the in the pro and he started rowing from city island to the Throng Connect Bridge which is three miles and back in law and sound and and he's rolling and the first thing he's as he's not a not a spangled of sweat he's just con foto incredibly powerful and he says this by the way is my favorite swim and he says it's a little bit dangerous because people don't expect the motorboats so expect people to be swimming in these waters especially late at night instead but the fact is when he would get on the water. It was one of the most gorgeous things you'd ever seen. We are all kinds of creatures. And and if you don't have the observing I and the patience we never get to meet the creatures around us so Oliver Sacks was able to see these living statues as human beings varied inside Shell. Now yeah well this is the key and one of the first reviews of Awakenings Bay. Doctor was we. Ask sure if you can spend two or three hours with these people begin to notice things but who has that kind of time you know. These are people who had been to the scene at all. There was a chart. The doctor came looked at them. Looked at the chart said okay add dosage or something in the case of Oliver Sacks he had had it turns out as you read the book and his autobiography brings out as well he'd had an incredibly difficult complicated Afflicted life himself. He was as one of his friends described. He was of the community of the refused and he recognized the refused. And and it's key coming back to this notion of fiction by the way because he would all the way through his life as fellow. Doctors was not believe him. He's making this up you know and so forth. And there's a whole question question about his reliability. He himself would be the first to admit that at all of his friends said he was a Mitha Maniac and that he was fg grant he had all kinds of things. That just didn't happen that way and so forth but he. He said when he was doing science that was not the case and his nurses who I spoke with his speech therapist. All the people like that would agree with that but having Said said that I think there is something important. He was talking to people who had been turned into objects by the system and were being warehouse. And that's not just those tattoos is people with Alzheimer's. It's people is Parkinson's as charters and so forth three just are not recognized at all and he would spend the time with them and and the key thing was that he would make them up or together they would make up a story they had been treated like objects wchs and the point was to allow them to have agency again to become the subjects of their own history and that was by the way. It's very true for me. Because at the same time as into Oliver I was dealing with solidarity in Poland I was covering pollen for the New Yorker and in Poland they referred to solidarity as an expression one of the subjectivity of the Polish people by which they meant their capacity to act as the subjects of history. When all they'd been the objects of other people's history and that that was what Oliver is doing and that is again in a certain sense of fictive activity the Kingdom of the refused? Yes so many of us are being relegated to this his kingdom we don't have to be reduced to unconsciousness. Two statues were being deprived saved of the products of will. And we're not being seen. Were not being seen. We're not being heard. It's time that we we used the techniques of writer Lee nonfiction to insist that what we have to say is interesting and to say it in an interesting way my guest has been Lawrence Weschler his work of writer Lee Nonfiction. This time is and how are you Dr Sacks of biographical memoir of Oliver Sacks published by Farah Straus and Giroux. Thank you very very much for joining me Lawrence or Ren as I hope I.

"DOT com. I'm Michael Silver Blunt this bookworm mm-hmm today I have a special guest his name. He's been on the show before is Lawrence Weschler. He's writing a book about someone else who's been on the show fight a few times. That's Oliver Sacks. Oliver one of my favorite guests and I had the excitement of learning that he was one of Lawrence. Weschler 's coasts Closest Friends Godfather to Lawrence. Wash lers daughter Sara. Yes yes. Of course you're going to want to read Oliver Sexes owned autobiographical writings. But you will learn something both about friendship and the interaction of two minds that in thirty years I never really parted company. They were talking constantly and at a time when we're forgetting what it's like to have friends that you don't fight with without making up within twenty hours. Think of all the people you'd stop. Stop being able to talk to Gore Vidal or Norman Mailer Susan Santen. And they're they are Lawrence Weschler my guest and end the great neuro physician. What did he call himself? He called himself a clinical oncologists. What did we? We used to go on rounds. Rounds Ed Ed We would be dry in those days. This is back in the early eighties and by the way it's with knowing that the when I I was getting hanging out with him I'm in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine hundred eighty one. He was largely unknown. AWAKENINGS had come out but nobody had read it ten years after it had been published in Nineteen in seventy three. I interviewed the publisher in England. Colin Hay craft the first edition had been fifteen hundred copies and they had not yet sold out. I mean it's it's amazing but anyway the point is we would go on on rounds and he in those days was and pretty much through his life was mainly going institutions and poor houses and so forth you will gospels. They were status poor houses. They were you know places where people are warehouse where he specialized it you know. And and he said that's where where the jewels are. You know you have all the time in the world. Nobody's expecting anything but any case So he would be driving between them and what you know I think of myself as a clinical oncologists apologist you know analogy is the philosophy of being. You know what. Why is there something rather than nothing and so forth? And he said my I am somebody for whom the diagnostic diagnostic question of the kinds of people I see is how are you. How do you be? What is it like to be you and here we are? This is the title of the book. And how are you Dr Sour you doctors and it's an autobiographical memoir memoir and my guests. Lawrence Weschler is a specialist in the creation of what he calls writer writer Louis Nonfiction. Which I think you know we've discussed on the show in the past literary nonfiction what what I call readily nonfiction is non-fiction in which the writing matters you right if the reading matter and you read the writing mattered? That's my definition. You do classes. Yes you teams this and you see I knew Ren Weschler when he was a young man in Los Angeles Los Angeles was home. There were people like Carole Eastman who wrote five easy pieces who called US invaders. Jack Potter's she felt. We were here to to rob the natives of their do I used to see Lawrence Weschler in a bookstore called intellectuals and liars tires wonderful place who was a wonderful wonderful place once upon a time and not very long ago a bookstore was a place ice. Will you hung out. You sat around may be ready chapter of something you were considering buying where you crease the pages in the poetry books will you read it out loud. Everybody so I I met Lawrence Weschler and he'd written terrific things was it mostly for the weekly I would right. I was the only person who was awry. Loud right for both the L. A. Reader and the L. A.. Weekly the Qazir writing was so good and no Alan would turn you down and it was fascinating because he went off to New York not yet thirty years old. I had unwritten. I'd spent three or four years with Robert Irwin. The artist who was who was already then probably one of the top ten artisan America but the one who was least known because he never allowed his work to be photographed. He most of the work didn't exist anymore and and I had an occasion. Why that happened? And then I wrote a book based on the conversations nations and are manuscripts forgetting seeing is forgetting the name of the thing one sees was the title nine thousand nine hundred eighty. I had six or seven Rave Steve Rejections from all the New York publishers. All them saying they wanted my next book. But how could they be expected to publish a book on a California artist. That's that's nineteen eighty But I said at the New Yorker and it was accepted kind of over the transient which was extremely. You know lucky on I mean. I always say that he does that. They get fifty thousand manuscripts year of this type and maybe a hundred of them are worth publishing and they published two of them and going that hundreds of that too was just luck and there was the famous lunch with the top editor. The head of the shocker. Mr Shawn was at the Al Gunk Right Hotel by the way. Says you know it's Apparently I live in California. We're going to hire you but we're very live in California.
