"Are the eyes of man. Father and have been give you praise and glory. Thank you so much. Thank you for getting us, not just through the St. Paul's letter to the Romans, but thank you for getting us to it. Thank you for opening our hearts and opening our minds by this great encyclical right this great letter it's greatly epistle of grace. Your love for every one of us help us to say yes to your love today and every day of our lives in Jesus name we pray amen in the name of the father of the son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. And actually possible today, gosh, we got to hear. Not only about the twin, when apostles, right? Saul and Peter, Saul's conversion. There is something remarkable. Well, obviously, there's a huge miracle that's happening in Saul's conversion, where he's breathing murderous threats against the Christians going to Damascus, to arrest them and bring them back to Jerusalem. But as Jesus appears to solve, what does he say? Saul Saul, why do you persecute me? Who are you, lord? He says, I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting, but you stop and say, wait a second. It's all isn't persecuting Jesus. He had nothing to do with Jesus as far as we know. So who's he persecuting? He's persecuting the church. And that is this, once again, here's Jesus identifying himself with the church that he instituted. He identified himself with the people who believe in him. Those who are Christians, right, who are little Christ's. He's saying, that's me. When you persecute the church, your persecuting me is so important, so important. But beyond that, here is Jesus appearing then to ananias. And in this, he reveals to him, yeah, I want you to go and heal this man named Saul, of his blindness. Now, here's an interesting thing. Why wouldn't Jesus who in this vision he blinded Saul? Why wouldn't Jesus just appear to solve again and heal him? I mean, that makes sense, right? I mean, Jesus is going to appear once. Why not have him appear twice and even kind of confirm the appearance? Well, it's because what's this last age? The last age is the age of the church. This last age is the age of the Holy Spirit, working through the church. And so rather than Jesus himself showing up in blinding salt and showing up in healing cell, here he is sending an apostle, but he's sent a possible scent. He's sending one of the Christians. He's sending a member of the body of Christ to Saul to heal him. And this is teaching not only Saul, but teaching all of us this key thing. The Jesus works through his church just as powerfully as he worked through the incarnation. So the same Jesus, who could have healed, Saul, instead, sent ananias to heal Saul. I mean, obviously he heals all through in a nice. But this is so important for us. Again, we can sometimes think it's just Jesus I mean, that's impossible. It's never been a case where such Jesus is in me. It's always Jesus in the context of community. And the father and context of community and the Holy Spirit and the context of community it's all about God's power, working through his church on earth. But here's

"Obeying God is not always easy, and trusting him isn't always as straightforward or simple as we'd like for it to be, but disobedience is inevitably folly. You're listening to truth for life, that's Alistair begged with a warning about the consequences of disobeying God. I think most of you know that the teaching you here on this program is made possible entirely by listeners like you. As we head into the final turn of this year, we want to ask you to consider giving a generous gift so that we can end the year strong and look forward to another year of ministry in 2023. It is quick and easy for you to give a donation. You can do it online at truth for life dot org slash donate, or you can call us at 8 8 8 5 8 8 7 8 8 four. When you donate, we invite you to request a copy of the new volume of Alistair's devotional, truth for life, 365 daily devotions, volume two. In fact, Alistair took a moment and recorded an excerpt from one of his daily readings that unpacks a verse for us from the book of proverbs. The desire of the slugger kills him. For his hands refused to labor. All day long, he craves and craves. But the righteous gives and does not hold back. Proverbs 21, 25 and 26. The book of proverbs is an intensely practical book. It reminds us that a godly life is lived out in the everyday events of our journey. One lesson that proverbs teaches us is the consequence of laziness. The biblical text uses the word sluggard to refer to a lazy person. It's not a contemporary word, but it is a suitable word. One that describes a habitually inactive person whose lifestyle is framed by indolence and dormancy. The sluggard we learn is hinged to his bed. This could mean that the person rises from there after lunchtime, or simply that they make little or no progress in their daily work. They never actually refuse to do anything, but they put off tasks that by bit. They deceive themselves into thinking that they'll get round to it. But minute by minute, they allow opportunity to quietly slip away. A lazy person does not finish what they start. But we, as followers of Christ, are called to a kind of perseverance that, as we work until the lord, will reap a harvest in due season, if we do not give up. As we remain accountable in Christian community, we can help each other see our blind spots. So that the excuses we make for our lazy behaviors don't become larger issues of self indulgence. The real tragedy of the sluggish life is that laziness is not an infirmity, but a sin. God created us to work with a purpose. That we may let our light shine before others so that they may see our good works and give glory to our heavenly father. The best adventure you can have is found along the pathway of goodness and duty. The greatest reward is not leisure and ease and ducking out, but in giving and giving and not holding back. How will that shape your approach to your day? And your tasks today. Now that is just a sample of one of 365 lessons you can ponder as you read volume two of the truth for life devotional in the new year. You can purchase copies of the devotional while supplies last. Today is the last day we'll send it to you as a thank you gift when you make a donation to truth for life. So don't delay simply ask for the book when you give online at truth for life dot org slash donate. Here a truth for life our greatest desire is to make clear and relevant Bible teaching available to as many people as possible everyone all around the world without cost being a barrier. Because of your prayers and your financial giving, all of Alastair's online teaching can be heard or watched or even read for free. So if you are one of our listeners who supports truthful life, we want to offer a sincere thank you on behalf of so many people. I'm bob lepine, thanks for listening today. It was a failure of faith that disqualified king Saul from his leadership. Tomorrow we'll find out how his son Jonathan boldly stepped into the gap.

"There was neither sword, nor spear, found in the hand of any other people. But Saul and Jonathan had done. And then verse 23 somewhat ominously, just in a sentence, and the garrison of the Philistines went out to the past of Mick marsh, in other words, and the Philistines are now on the move. Set up for chapter 14. While those are the two slices, we're going to come to what I'm referring to as the heart of the matter. That's the heading I use for versus 8 through to 1415 or so. The question that we are confronted with is how in the world is it that the Israelites find themselves in such a sorry state? How is it? And the answer to that is found in the foolish disobedience of the king. Leadership always matters. So you have this picture of Saul on the hill, grinning somewhat sheepishly and foolishly. As he looks out on the circumstances before him. And he decides, I'm going to have to fix this myself. Now, in order to help us understand this central section, if you turn back one page to chapter ten, you will be reminded. We will be reminded of the clear instruction that Samuel had given to Saul. On the occasion of his anointing. He told him that there would be signs that would be there for him to discover. And he said to him, now when the signs meet you, first of all, let me give issue to you a call to action. Do what your hand finds to do for God is with you. And we saw at that time that the inference was take care of your opponents. Then verse 8, a call not to action, but a call to wait. Then go down before me to gilgal, behold I am coming down to you to offer burned offerings and to sacrifice peace offerings, 7 days you shall wait until I come to you and show you what you shall do. So clearly a call to action and a call to wait. Paul eventually in chapter 11, obeys the call to action. And now we discover in chapter 13 that he fails in the call to wait. Now we need to read this carefully.

"But it is a result of a divine invasion. And without that divine invasion, then Saul would be aware of what Jesus made his followers aware of when he was present. When he said to them, apart from me, you can do nothing. And it is in the awareness of that nothingness. And in the provision of that something in the divine rush of God, that this story resolves itself. There are a number of ways in which I could conclude. And here's my decision. If this is a pointer to us, of the story of Salvation that God who saves. If God comes in Jesus to save, that presupposes that men and women need to be saved. That then makes it clear to us that either I have embraced that Salvation, or I have rejected that Salvation. So if it is a gospel story, the gospel is first of all to be believed. Question. Do I believe it? In a nut, intellectual assent way, but in a sitting down way. And the gospel that is to be believed is then to be proclaimed, and it is to be proclaimed in such a way that an alien world is made aware of the fact that we have good news to make known. And if you find yourself uncomfortable with the battle stories of the Old Testament, realize this, that in the New Testament, the apostles pick up the battle metaphor and the apply it to the proclamation of the gospel. They say we do not wrestle against flesh and blood. They say that the weapons of our warfare, because it's not a physical battle, it is a spiritual battle. In other words, there would be perfectly comfortable by singing onward Christian soldiers marching as to war. They're very unpolitical picture, isn't it now? On politically correct picture. The gospel is not a business venture. It's a battle. The preachers of the gospel were not marketers. Where messengers were town criers, the message is an unpalatable message. If you compromise the message, you can increase your crowd. If you stay with a message, you diminish the crowd because the people don't want to face the message. And if you and I this morning are uncomfortable with that metaphor, it is probably because we have never understood the enormity of the task. And of the essential requirement, not only on the part of soul to fulfill the role of king, but on the part of each of us to invite our friends to community day the essential part of the divine rush of the spirit of God. For us, is a rubber bull set. It's not by might. It's not by power.
Why Proof of Stake Won't Be Used for Intergalactic First Contact
"Why proof of stake won't be used for intergalactic first contact? A Bitcoin astronomy essay by buck pearly. Ethereum's merged to full proof of stake has put the consensus mechanism on top of mind for many. And I thought it would be a good opportunity to explore what to me was one of the most mind-blowing implications of drove Bond Saul's prior Bitcoin astronomy part three piece. Proof of stakes subjectivity means it can never scale to an intergalactic, interspecies society. The hash horizons shadow. A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, a civilization developed. It was a social society made up of self interested individuals who lack perfect knowledge. No hive mind formics here. Like life in our own galaxy they evolved in a world with finite resources that demanded competition for survival. This galaxy exists in a universe that follows the same natural laws as our own. Assuming no zones of thought where the rules of relativity can be broken, the same terran laws of physics must apply. This civilization is known across the cosmos as the nakamoto's. By following three rules of cosmic sociological evolution of civilizations as laid out in drove bonsall's Bitcoin astronomy part three, a theory for the universality of proof of work blockchains can be seen. An evolutionary pattern takes shape whereby this civilization will develop some form of money as a trust minimizing technology to facilitate economic coordination among disparate communities of self interested individuals. This will eventually take the form of a blockchain for settling economic activity in a trust minimized way, and by the laws laid out in Bitcoin astronomy parts one and two, this blockchain should be secured by proof of work or risk civilizational stagnation and galactic irrelevancy.
Always Accuse the Enemy of What You Yourself Are Doing
"Our listeners reminded me, of course, we've done multiple programs on this, but it's sometimes you have to go through it because you have listeners that come in and out and also memories, unfortunately, are not as sharp as we would like them to be. Saul linsky saw linsky was of course a luciferian political organizer. I don't say that lightly. He wrote the dedication to the book rules for radicals. He was a community organizer to Lucifer. The first rebel Hillary Clinton wrote her senior thesis dedicated to solid ski. And there were 13 rules get at 13 rules for radicals as he would call it. The left follows these rules very closely and carefully. Every conservative should become deeply aware of Salisbury rules for radicals. That, and of course, the prince by Machiavelli, neo machiavellianism actually turned into alinsky ism. And one of the rules right there is right in front of you. Which is always accuse the enemy of what you yourself are doing. The rules are this. Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have, the number one. Number two, never go outside the expertise of your people. They're violating some of these rules, by the way. Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Number four make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. Number 5, ridicule is man's most potent weapon. 6 a good tactic is one that people enjoy. 7, a tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag. Number 8, keep the pressure on, never let up. Number 9, the threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself. Number ten, the major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. Number 11, if you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive. Number 12, the price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative, a number 13, which is one of the most important. Pick a target, freeze it personalize it polarizing. That's exactly what they're trying to do to Donald Trump right now.

"To be it's a real love story. He gets there and he no longer wants a way out, right? Yeah, yeah, exactly. What do you think about the two dreams that he remembers on the subway? I mean, real life dreams can make no sense, but in a story, the author has put them there to make sense. And created them. You know, we've got this undertaker who wants to cut his hair, and then we've got a woman he has to carry on his head. Yeah, I mean, it's funny when I read this section when he talks about the dreams, and he goes back to sex determination. And again, the genetics, X, Y, chromosomes. It's kind of to me this paragraph condensed version of the story or the story, not in miniature. It doesn't have all the beats, but we have him Saul Bellow shows us his thought process once he's on the train, and it's different than when he's above ground or something, because thoughts very often are more fertile underground, or something. And so we have this zoom on how he thinks like when he's on a train underground. Which goes back to the layers and the superimposition thing, like now he's underground and there's even maybe more pressure over or on top of his thoughts. So I kind of saw it as a sort of a pressure cooker version of his thoughts and so like the dreams were more like I didn't particularly try to make sense of them. They do make sense in the grand scheme of the story, like the woman he carries on his head, Joan or mother. It's fairly straightforward there. Yeah, straight forward, the lawyer, I didn't know he had a lawyer. So that's a separate thing. But yeah, to me it was more like, here's a very condensed version of the things that obsess him. And so dreams are also part of it..

"We're going to hear a father to be by Saul Bellow, which was published in The New Yorker in January of 1955. The notion that all were on the pressure and affliction, instead of saddening him, had the opposite influence. It put him in a wonderful mood. It was extraordinary how happy he became, and in addition, clear sighted. The story was chosen by Camille bordas, whose novel how to behave in a crowd was published in 2017. Hi Camille. Hi, Deborah. So when did you first read Saul Bellow? I probably first read Saul bell after I moved to Chicago. So it would have been around 2012 or 2013. Not that I didn't know who Saul Bellow was before, but it was a bit intimidating to me, I think. And then, yeah, I moved to Chicago and I kept hearing his name. And I didn't come to his stories until very recently, because one of my students told me he has good stories too. He's not just a novelist. I think I read Humboldt's gift and then almost all his novels. After that, yeah. So Humboldt's gift made you want to read the others? Yes, absolutely. What is it that draws you to his writing? I don't know. I mean, it's funny because as a writer, I wouldn't say I'm against description, but it's definitely something I avoid. It's something that I'm not really good at. And so when I see someone do it so exquisitely, I fall into a trend and a form of jealousy ensues maybe, but also because I think all these beautiful lines about Chicago and I was first moving to Chicago and I was not really enjoying the place at first and I think just like reading Saul Bellow described the city with so much heart and gorgeous prose. I mean, there was something about how the snow and Chicago becomes its own source of light at night and I was like, oh my God, this is so beautiful and so true. I don't know there's something very warm about him. It might not be the first qualifier that people have for soul Bella, but to me it's just very warm, very warm rider..

How many men does it take to deliver a message one? Remember that scene? I do both. I had to do the other. I know that you cut out a couple times first they had the arrow, and I think Mike lizer said it was too dramatic. We changed it. Yeah, yeah. I remember all the changes. By the way, I just had Leia's salongo on as a guest. I know I wrote you a little note. I'm like, I would love to have lay a song on. We'll have to talk later. He's had good guys. And by the way, so we have to wrap up. I have an out that I have to run. I got to tell you, so we had this long gone. And we talked about the fact that the directors cut Mulan's reflection in half, whatever, but look, Tony, you were that day watching you as a director. This is a true story. That cinch for me that you know what? I don't want to animate anymore. I don't want to draw, I really want to become a director, which is what I did when I was a teenager. And that got, that's what that with Barry's story got me and Elliot moving into becoming director. So I thank you for being, like I said, a mentor and an example. So it was basically, if he could do it, come on. There was a little bit of that. Oh, you were just great. You were a great director, and I appreciate that opportunity. So I hate that we have to break this off and I'm starting it. So everybody's going to hate me. 'cause this is an amazing one man podcast. We've hardly said anything. You just took one story and made it an hour long podcast. Thank you for that. I don't think anybody feels cheap or that they missed us because you did. I felt inspired. I'm ready to go try and crack into Disney again. I might just go back to I just laughed out loud. I've done that in a while. I know. How do I get back in? But we do need to have you back. I want to do part two. I know there's a part two. This is just how you got to where you are. The beginning of where you are. That way. There's a lot more. By the way, Saul, Tony, I don't even know if you know this. It's all sun is a voice actor, professionally. I did not know that, okay? Okay, has worked out a few DreamWorks movies. Well, he's the voice of Dennis in hotel Transylvania. The Sony movie. Yeah. And I have a feeling there's a little bit of dad's spirit there and pushing and urging my kids do voice-over. My daughter was in Doc. I was in Phineas and Ferb. And a bunch of stuff, yeah. So there's some fun there. I already know in the next phase of this story. And we're going to have you back, okay? If I could just leave your listeners with just one final message, I think each one of us, like I said earlier, is unique. And because we are unique, we have a unique purpose. But at the end of the day, I really urge all of us not to wake up with the goal of how can I do my animation in my drawing and my filmmaker, my art to make me happy. We need to look at those as gifts that we have in order to impact others. Because only when we take responsibility for the world and using our passions and our abilities to give to the world to give to humanity, that will bring us something that's a lot sweeter than even happiness, that's ultimately I think a life of meaning. And you can see it beautifully and I'm just going to bring out the bankrupt brothers again. These are two guys, two brothers that can draw an animate and direct and write and do anything. But the big imprint they're making in the world isn't even through their art. Look at the encouragement that they put in through all their books. I mean, I tell artists all the time by their books. Check out their podcasts. Look at all the videos that you guys do online. Tom, I've been watching your videos and your draw overs for students and sending them to people for years. Your guys have been number one as far as teachers, you're making such an impact and I appreciate both of you for that also. So thank you guys. Wow. Now we definitely got to have you on again. That kind of got Tony to open his mind to that. Wow, that was so inspired he was. I was thinking, yeah, I don't think we'll ever see soli again, but now good job, complimenting Tony so much at the end there to get your foot back. You are welcome anytime mister blink. Awesome. That's right. Thank you so much. This has been amazing. Thank you so much Saul for doing this and we will have you back, man. Thanks guys. As we always say, animate. From the heart..

"We spent four years, maybe three years all through Mulan, making our own short film about a little dreamer pig, who wants to fly named Rudy. And we call them Rudy because of the movie Rudy that inspired me. And by the way, I do have a podcast that I host called life of awesome. And in that podcast, the very first guest I ever had was the real Rudy rudiger. So he's such a thrill. Oh my gosh. Just to tell him the impact that he had in his story had on my life and to hear him share the behind the scenes of his life story was incredible, but yeah, Elliot and I made this short film about this little pig and that became what we called our calling card. That's what really propelled us to become directors. We made something. And that's another piece of advice I want to share with everybody. Don't wait in life for people to allow you to create. If you have a fire and you have the clarity just go make something. There's no reason today in 2022 if you want to be a filmmaker that you can't find someone else who probably lives within ten blocks of you grab your iPhone and you can make movies. You can write you can animate whatever you want, nothing is stopping you. And that piece of film that we made that 15 minute short that we made, which, by the way, Tom, I don't know if you remember. You actually animated the very first scene, the most important scene. I remember animating on it. I don't remember what it was. So you animated the scene where Rudy looks back at his brothers. He's like, I don't want to stay here. I want to go after my dream. It was one of the most important moments and you were so gracious to do this scene for us and to the stam incredibly grateful to you for that. And he goes off and pursues his dream, but that film we made got us our first directing job the year was 2000 at MTV, and then a year later, a year and a half later, we eventually returned to Disney directing Winnie the pooh springtime with rue, which led to more Disney movies and eventually kronk's new groove. That guy, the sequel to your movie, Tony. And I still remember when you and Mark dindal came in the other director when he directed it, you were animating kronk, of course, supervising animator. And but when you guys saw that movie, Elliot and I were a little nervous, you know, I knew my mom was gonna like it, but if Mark and Tony are gonna like it, and that was something else, but at least you said you enjoyed it. So thank you. But not really propelled to tell my career. It is amazing to see the journey, man. And you and Elliot were just such a great duo together too. You guys found each other early on and both had that same kind of tenacity and drive. And it was so, it's exactly what you just described. And I love how you tell that story. But from my outsider's point of view and you're so generous, you're always talking about how you're watching our careers and stuff and what we've done and aspire to be more like a bankrupt. You're a third bankrupt brother, don't you worry. You didn't just be and you're a twin you're in. Yes, right. That's right. That's right, man. Honorary club. Gotta have two. But no, you always achieved exactly what you kind of set out to do because you just had this, you know, and it's not my saw at an early age in you, but that quality of like, and not in a rude way, but it was like this, you know, nobody's gonna tell me I can't do this. I'm just gonna keep going. I'm gonna follow those dreams and there's no reason that saw blink off can't be a director at Disney. And you did. And it was amazing. Thank you. And you know, I have thank you for saying that, Tony means a lot. I want to tell you, just a bunch of memories really quick with you guys. First of all, Tom. I had to walk by your desk every night on Mulan to get out. And no matter what any other papers, you were the one. Nice. Of course I did. I don't have you think I don't have some mushrooms. I got some mushrooms. Throw it away. I got some, yeah. Yeah, throwaways. Some of them are so much. Okay. Larry David, who took a couple of throwaways, throwaways, throw away. Look, we don't work at Disney right now. Do they get the virus? Actually, I am being considered right now for another job there so it's fine. Well, this one here until you got that job. So let's assume you have that job. You're safe. You're fine. But Tom, I remember walking by and you were every night. You had a wife, and I think you had one or two little ones at that time, right? Probably, right? Yeah. You know, you had a baby. First of all, I remember you, your baby and on the internship, we would draw your baby daughter on the internship. By Milan, ansley, she was a baby. There you go. But Tom, every night when anyone else was leaving, no matter what the overtime was that we were all doing 14 hours, 7 days a week. You guys remember, but Tom, you were always out working, anyone there. And I'm telling you, I remember you working and work, and you would do a scene and it was amazing, and then you're like, no, I got to push it more and push them on Elliot and I would come by your day. I still remember that scene dragon drag gun, not lizard. I don't do that tongue. Remember we were talking about that scene. I probably don't remember that. No, I do remember talking, I pitched it to you. Here's this crazy idea I want to do. And you were like, I think you guys taught me out of it, thankfully. Yeah. Right. I was gonna have to do sign language. That's right. Tom. Don't do that. I do remember that. I think he fits that idea to bury him. I did. I did. I animated it. Half animated it. But I remember walking by and I was sharing an idea with you and you took the idea and you were like, I like that idea. And I remember for like a year, I felt like Tom listened to an idea for me. That was incredible. First of all, that's number one. By the way, you used to borrow my CDs. You borrowed my Michael W Smith. I found a drawing the other day. You borrowed Janet Jackson for me. But I just showed this to my kids two days ago on my desk. I wasn't there. You drew this incredible drawing, which I'll send you later of Janet Jackson. You can throw it up on Instagram for your listeners. And you said borrowed this CD, hope it's okay, and there's a picture of Janet you drew in this incredible pose. I'm like, that's just like a and you signed, it was amazing. But Tony, I have a quick story for you also. Oh, I want one. Yes, please. Thank you. I got one for you. So you guys had posted in the studio, you were looking for temp voices for all the Mulan characters because all the actors were in LA. And there was auditions for this, right? And everybody was gone for this. So I auditioned for Sean yu. I got the job. You don't even remember. Do you remember this? And I go in to get directed by Tony and Barry. Directors of Mulan. Oh my gosh. How nervous? Yeah, I was mean back. No, but it was so exciting. You treated me like a professional. And I still remember, I'll do one of the lines right now for your listeners. I'll do two. I'll do it too..

I can't believe it. He goes, what do you think of me for? You did it. I hang up the phone, I go over to my tape player, most of you listening don't know what tapes are. They play music. And at the top of my lungs, it's the circle of life. And you're like young Simba. I am and I pick up the phone, I down my mom, and I still remember how fast I dialed her number. Man, and she could hear it in my voice. She's like, honey, did you do it? I said no, mom. We did it. We did it together. Mom, you're the one that took me to this school and you took me there and you took me to Disney, but mom, this winter, you can stay in New York because I'm going to the happiest place on earth. Can I land at Disney? And a guy picks me up at the airport with a sign that has my name, right? You know you've arrived in life when there's one of those people that have that. But this had like Mickey Mouse pointing to my name. He drives me to the Disney studios. I walk through and I get into a room. It was the animation. I gotta ask, was the driver? Was it that kid from your class? It was like, ha ha. Hi, you made it. I wish him a good life wherever he is. Absolutely. Right. But listeners. No stop. He's probably a listener, right? So they drive me into the animation building. I walk into a room and there's like 14 big animation deaths like the ones that you guys have. And on one of those deaths is the nameplate saw blink off, kid from New York. And I just want everyone to make sure you hear one thing. You did not hear the story about a very talented artist that got into Disney. You heard a story about a person who was the worst artist in his school who achieved his dream, because as I said earlier, you don't wake up great at anything. If you have a belief in yourself that you can accomplish something and you're really willing to put the work in. I mean, to really struggle and go through that pain, then if I could achieve what I have achieved, anyone listening can achieve ten times more. I promise you. There's nothing getting in our way, but ourselves. And that's when the dream started. And look, guys, I was on the internship with incredible people incredible artists. And at the end of the internship, Bill Matthews calls me into his office and he goes, Saul, we'd like to offer you a 5 year contract. Would you like that? I'm like, why do you always ask me that? Yes, I would like that. You have. I want. I hand it to him and I'll tell you guys one quick story you guys will appreciate. It's so fun because you guys all live Disney stories during the same time. You're like, oh, we didn't know about that. So we didn't know about it. Yeah, yeah, that's true. So check this out. I'm working on my Cody run from rescuers down under as part of my internship. It was a run cycle with those boots. Each drawing took like 5 hours and our hands are bleeding. I mean, it was just so difficult. If you never done cleanup before, it was hard, right? Yeah. So one day, Tony West brings me over to his desk. I've never shared this story before, guys. And he says, dude, you want to draw in the movie Pocahontas. I'm like, yeah. He's like, and he's like, I'm working on this leaf sequence. You want to work on these leaves. I'm like, yeah. So there's a scene in Pocahontas, for those who know the movie. This is BF. Before frozen, okay? And Pocahontas is talking to John Smith at night. Koko home is the Native American she's supposed to marry. Well, he's not very happy. She's talking to someone else. He walks through it nighttime. Peeks through these leaves to watch them, and he asked me to draw the leaves. That was it. And that was the first thing I ever drew in a Disney movie. I know, right? And I took a Xerox of that drawing. I sent it home to my mom. She tells everyone in her community. You know, my son draws leaves. She's so proud. She's amazing. She's amazing. Now, look, I was terrified. You know, you do a drawing of a leaf. It's very small and a piece of paper on a movie screen. It's a 50 foot leaf, it better be a good leaf. After Pocahontas, I start my life in Florida, start working on that in hunchback, and then eventually it led me to the two of you on a film we like to call Mulan. Which really changed all of our lives. Milan. Mulan, correct. Which mood like I never say. I always say Mulan. Well, by the way, yeah, first of all. That was an awesome I love that story. So that's the thing that I always think of when I think of you saw is one of the most outgoing energetic, positive people I ever met in my days at Disney. Hence, I always reaching up. Always reaching up. That's a great question. I always felt like you were thankful and content where you were and that's important to say, but you are always looking up. You're always reaching higher. Yep. Wow. I remember little saw and your friend Elliot at the time. You guys were like rough in betweeners, working on Mulan. And you know, that's kind of like a very beginning intro to the animation process kind of position for those that don't know, but Saul and Elliot shared an office. They had more fun than any 20 animators combined, probably. I remember that they made their own film. He's raising up, tell us about that pig real quick. Yeah, you look right now. This is a little pig that Elliot and I created a character named Rudy. And basically what happened was, while we were working on Mulan, we were inspired by Barry cook story, of course, the other director Mulan, and that he had made a short film off his rockers during downtime at Disney, which led to him doing a roger rabbit, which led to him doing Mulan eventually. So Elliot and I decided to look, we want to be directors. Let's not wait to be tapped to be a director. That doesn't happen to just anyone that happens to Tony and Aaron Blaise and basically no one else. They're basically the right guys in the right place at the right time, like God comes in tapio and incredible..

"It was incredible. So Andy and I stay there, freezing, watching this elephant. You know what the overlap of the head and the ear, amazing. Yeah, and your gear freezing. Geeking out. 45 minutes later, we get back on the bus that I'm showing you when I drew, he showed me a need. And then I said to one of the other guys, I'm like, hey, we never saw any of you at the elephants. What animals were you drawing? And the guy says to me, we never left the Wendy's. I'm like, why not? He goes, well, we couldn't. I said, why not? He says, it's too cold. It was too cold. Your life, my friend. That's right. That's why you're out in the cold and I got a job. You know what? I'm telling you guys, that was the moment where I realized you know what someday I'm going to get in because I'm going to outwork the competition. And I want you guys to know all your listeners. If you have a goal to achieve something, the only way the only way to be great at something is to struggle through pain. Nobody wakes up great at anything. Go turn on Netflix. Watch a documentary about anybody that inspires you. You know what they all have in common? They pushed through pain. You don't go through pain, you grow through pain. And Andy and I got those drawings together, and we sent them in to Disney. And I go back home to New York, it's Christmas break. I get a call, and it's hey man, what's up? He's like, blink off. You're not going to believe this. I'm like, what am I not going to believe he goes? I got it. I said you got what he goes. I got the internship. I'm like, that's amazing. Congratulations. I hate you. He's like, but you didn't hear anything. And I'm like, no, I didn't, but they could be trying to call me right now. We didn't have call waiting back then, right? So I gotta go. I'm pacing in the dining room back and forth. Mom comes in at that moment like, honey, what happened? I'm like, mom, Andy got the call. She's like, oh my gosh, they got to call you in a minute. She starts walking back and forth. She doesn't actually have such a thick New York accent, but whenever I do the voice, I have to turn it out a little bit. I know. I like it a lot. Crank up the New York accent, the little voice. So I'm walking back and forth. The phone's not ringing. It's not raining. I'm like, mom, did you pay the phone bill? What's going on, right? Hang up the phone. Yeah, so what do I do? I pick up the phone and I dial to head a Disney Animation myself. Does that? Let me tell you who does that. I did. Because when there's something you want in your life, you will do anything to get it. You know, guys, when I was 14 years old, growing up in New York, my hero was Michael Jordan. He was the greatest of all time, still is. You know, let's not talk about LeBron. He needs to go. I get it. And I'm standing next to the court before a game in Jordan standing there with those breakaway pants. And he's dribbling the ball. He had that game face that focused, and I said to my older brother, Jay, I'm going to walk out in the court and go meet Michael Jordan. Bro, he's like, Ye go and know before he could finish that sentence, true story, guys. I walk out on the court. I'm looking up to number 23, and I say, hi, mister Jordan, and he looks down at me and says, quote, yo, how you doing? End quote. And he shook my hand. This one right here, which I still have never watched, by the way. It still has that sweater. Do we still have that hand? I still have that hand. And I can draw it down too. And you drive. Yeah. But you know why I walked out there? Because when there's something you want in your life, you will do anything to get it. And I'm sure you guys get something that I get all the time, which is calls and emails and DMs from people all over the world. Say, my dream is to do a voice and a Disney movie. My dream is to do this any advice how to do it. And I often say to them, if it's your dream and you haven't put any effort to figure out how to do that, it's probably not your dream. Yeah, exactly. You're using the wrong words, yeah. Right. So I call up Disney myself, and I get this guy on the phone, hi, my name is Saul blink. He goes, oh, so I have your name on a list here. I'm like really and he goes, yeah, you didn't make it. Oh. Oh. That was the second punch, yeah. So I'm like, oh, what about Andy? Yeah, he made it. You didn't. I was like, oh, okay. So I hang up the phone, and that was a bittersweet moment in my life. Sweet because I was happy for my best friend. And bitter because my dream was shattered. You know, Andy's going to Disney World. What do they call Disney World? The happiest place on earth? Boom, right? Basically Disney's telling you, if you want to be happy in the world, you could be happy in Hawaii, Nashville, LA, but if you want to be happy it is, only place you could do that is in Disney World. Andy's going to sunny Disney World. I'm going back to Ohio in the wintertime, the most depressing place on earth. That's how I felt. That's what I felt. And when I walked the halls of the school, people were coming up to me like blink off. What are you doing here? Oh, I didn't make it all. Oh, what happened to Andy? Oh, he made it. I became known as the guy that was friends with the guy that got into Disney. I became known as the guy who didn't get what he really, really wanted. And I felt like a loser. And then I came up with the most brilliant way to take that feeling of being a failure away. You know what I did? I gave up. Oh, no. Yeah, it's true. I gave up on the entire dream because reality said to me. That's not the song I know. I get it. And what year were you at that point? I was my third year, my third year. And you know what? Just starting it. Do you know? No, just like midway through third year. Yeah. And look, you know what? I gave up because reality had said in reality was Andy was an awesome artist and I was just me. And I think each one of us has a shoulder angel and a shoulder devil that's this brings you back to your crunk days. Here we go. That's right. We have the shoulder. Let me do the voice. Yeah. Anyway, so you got the shoulder angel on the shoulder devil. We have a shoulder angel telling us that we can achieve great things, aspire to change the world that will do great things. We have a shoulder devil that says, who do you think you are to want that? And I started listening to that shoulder devil. And I gave up on the entire dream. But check this out. One week later, I see another movie that changes my life..

"This auditorium is filled with 750 students, every freshman, sophomore junior and senior. And he looks out to us and he asks all of us before we start, he says, how many of you want to be Disney animators? Every hand went up. And he goes, just so you know, out of the 750 of you, maybe, just maybe four of you will ever work there. That's how competitive it is. And when he said that, I thought one thing. I wonder who the other three are going to be. I knew it. And you heard you heard little Jason's with his voice. I know it's gotta be me. Right. Well, because you look in life, we either believe in ourselves that we can accomplish or we don't, and then he said, if you want to work at Disney, you gotta get the internship. No internship, no Disney. And if you want the internship, eat a portfolio, 25 pages filled with hundreds of figure drawings and anatomy of animals and humans from life. No cartoon characters, he said, and especially no drawings of Mickey Mouse. And I look back in the auditorium and I see Mickey Mouse Jason, slouching his chair. Oh boy. Oh no. So there I was at this incredible school and the equation was growing. First it was Saul go to one of these schools will equal dream now. It's all you need a portfolio, 25 pages of figure drawing anatomy will equal your dream. So I sign up for figure drawing classes as many as I possibly can. First we can school, I go to a party, all right? Because after you do when you don't know anyone, they have a party there? Oh, they have parties in art school, right? Clothing optional. Yeah. We weren't invited. You guys were there. So I go to this party. And in the corner of this party, this is a true story. There is somebody drinking alcohol out of a funnel, okay? I never seen anything like this before. But as strange as that was, next to that person was a guy with a sketchbook drawing someone drinking beer out of a funnel. I go over to this guy and I'm like, excuse me. What are you doing? He goes, well, I'm drawing. I go, what class is this for? He goes, it's not for a class. I said, so why are you doing it? He says, because I want to get better. And he became my best friend, his name was, are you ready? Tony West? No. Oh. Andrew Edward harkness. And let me tell you, just me being friends with someone like that made me a better artist because who we choose to be friends with actually affects who we become. I can't tell you how many times I remember walking through that lobby, freshman year. And Andy and I would step over these bodies of people who were smoking and doing whatever they're doing and watching The Simpsons. That's what you did in art school. You would sit in the lobby altogether with pizza boxes everywhere, watching The Simpsons and Andy and I would step over lose bodies, go out into the Columbus night with sketchbooks, and we would draw every night, lamppost, benches, people, every night, constantly drawing. And I can tell you what his work ethic and inspiration and passion elevated me. And I could see myself getting better as an artist. You guys had each other, right? Don't you guys have each other? Iron trapped on Zion, yeah. Right. Yes, we did. I trained him everything he knows. There you go. So we've drawn all the time. Sophomore year, I get my drawings together. I put them in a black portfolio case. I send them into Disney. I didn't expect to get in the first time. I just want to go through the process. I send it in a month later, I get an envelope on Disney stationary. It's got a gold leaf, Mickey, embossed on there. My name is typed on the front like, wow. I open it up. It's a saw. Thanks for sending your portfolio in, but you didn't make it. So I got rejected. You don't see that coming. Like I said, I didn't expect it in the first time. It's a matter of fact, I remember being happy that the Disney Company knew I was alive. They had my name, printed on an envelope. And it somehow they're keeping track of you probably, right? That's right, they're like, okay, number one. So I put that on a wall. That was inspiration. People were coming into my dorm room like blink off. The Disney Company knows you're alive. How cool is that, right? Another year goes by, Andy and I are drawing constantly. I'll tell you guys one quick story. We went to the zoo one day, and it was freezing bitter call. You guys don't know anything about that because you grew up in California. That's true. It's always nice. Yeah, always nice, right? But in Columbus Ohio in the winter time, bitter cold freezing. We get about 17 students on a bus to go draw animals for the day for a rapid sketch class. The second we get to the zoo, we go into this Wendy's cafe. Because we want to warm up and get hot drinks. Well, the guys are flirting with the girls, the girls are flirting with the guys. After about two minutes, Andy and I are like, all right, sharp and pencils, let's go. We go walking around the zoom, we find what animal we're going to draw today. And we just by miraculously see this elephant doing the greatest thing. The elephant just walking back and forth. That's it. Repeating the same motion over and over, which is you guys know is just the greatest gift you could give someone who's studying poses and movement and doing a walk cycle..

"Went off the rails. Was that at first? Was that a first for you guys? Yes. Yes. I've signing it a couple times, but Tony sings all the time. But that was a trio. Come on, that was a trio. That was pretty good. That was good. But yeah, Little Mermaid, so a Little Mermaid came out, and that was a game changer. It was a game changer. Look, I see that movie, and I'm watching literally it was one moment I will never forget. And because you guys are animation aficionados. And your audience is, I want to tell you the moment because I know you know it. It was when Ariel singing part of your world, right? And she sings the lyric, what's a fire, and why does it? What's the word? And Glenn Keane's pose on the word burn. Tony's acting it out. He has anyone else. Any other animator, new animator would have done burn, like maybe like a match or something. But he takes her hand. What's underwater? Puts it across her chest. She arches her back, closes her eyes as if there's a fire in her. Yes. There's like a yearning inside of her that captured. I love that. And that's the moment where it's not just about some mermaid that wants to go see people. It's about a human being or a character who wants to understand the world. And that right there is primal. I felt that. I felt like I feel like it is a fire in me burning. And of course, Glenn's animation was like nothing anyone had ever seen. The music from Alan menken Howard ashman lyricist, incredible Jodi Benson's performance, the art direction, all of it. I remember the credits are rolling. I tap my mom at the end of the movie. And I go, mom. That's what I want to do. And she's like, what, you want to fall in love with a fish? I know, right? I feel like there's more to this story. Was there a guy behind me tapped you on the shoulder? He goes, hi, weirdo. He wants to be a mermaid. He's crying. So look, there I was. You're in high school. And I knew that my dream was to become a Disney animator. Well, I just had one major problem. I had no idea how to do that. Today you want to be Disney animator, you go to Google, you type in how do you become a Disney and you'll find out. Back then, get ready every week. No such thing as the Internet, right? As my kids say, that's the olden days, right? So what do I do? There are no books on how to become Disney animators. I didn't know about Preston Blair and all these old books. So what happens? My mom, incredibly supportive mom, takes her, not my older brother, not my sister, takes me to Disney World. Walks me around Disney World, just to ask people, how can she's like, my son wants to be a Disney animator, can you help him? Asking the Disney cast members of noise. Ask him Pluto and people like that. They're like, man, we're not supposed to talk in the costumes. So what happens? We're getting on the it's a small world boat ride. True story. We're getting on the boat. My mom was like, my son wants to work at Disney. Can you help? And the ladies like, ma'am, how many of your party? This is a boat ride. So we go through that boat ride. We get off and the lady says, look, if you want your son to work at Disney, he's got to go to the Disney casting building. It was four minutes away from where we were in Disney World. So we drive to this building and for your listeners who haven't seen this building. Oh yeah. Can you imagine how incredibly imaginative and beautiful the casting building is? Do you guys remember what it looked like in Florida? I remember it. Do you remember the doors? What are the doors look like? Do you remember? Oh, they have the Alice in Wonderland. Yes. Exactly. Tom nailed that. Gold star for Tom. There it is. It has the doorknobs from Alice in Wonderland that talk. They're made out of brass. It was incredible. I opened the doors. And inside this atrium or gold statuettes of Mickey Donald Pluto goofy roger rabbit, even the air in there was like pixie dust in there. I even had a smell. And I walk up this ramp, Tom, you ever been in that building. Yeah. So it's been a long time, but I do remember the ramp. You remember that ramp you walk up this giant ramp and paint it on the ceiling as Peter Pan and Wendy, flying off to Neverland, and I was like, that's where I want to go. I want to go to Neverland. And on the left was a painting of Walt Disney. Oh, it was amazing. So I sit there for the interview and the ladies like, I'm going to help you I'm like, yeah, my dream is to be a Disney animator. Well, we don't hire those here. I said, well, who do you hire? Should we hire people that work in the parks, people that make the dumbo ride go up and down or sell a Coke for a $15, you know? And I'm like, well, that's not my dream. She goes, well, hold on a second. She walks out of the room, comes back in two minutes later, and hands me a piece of paper, the changes the course of my life. It was a list of 8 schools, 8 art schools that Disney recruits their artists from. She says, if you want to be a Disney animator, you need to go to one of these schools. Boom, that was it. Now I had the recipe. You know, so often I meet students and I ask them, what's your goal in life? And some of them who are lucky enough to have clarity, then I ask them another question. How will you achieve that goal? Because if you don't know how, it's not going to happen. You'd go to a great restaurant. You taste a great dessert. You can make it at home if you have the recipe. And that's what I had in my hands. And in my mind, the equation was beginning Saul plus go to one of these schools will equal dream of becoming a Disney animator. So I go from school to school, right? I didn't make it to Cal arts, a little too far from home, guys. I'm sorry. What are you too expensive too? Right? Yeah. And I didn't go to Sarasota to see the blaze brothers. That was a little too south. That's ringling. And I didn't go up to Sheridan to visit Dave Zach. I didn't Canada. That's Canada. So I did go to the Columbus college of art and design. I remember touring the halls of the skull. We're talking Elliott Boer and Brian summer and Tracy Lee and whoever's listening and so many people Nathan grano. All folks. Tony West. Oh, Tony West. Well, hold on to that Tony West story, Tom. You gotta bring that name back, okay? Okay. So I go touring the school and I remember looking at the artwork on the walls and it was a hundred times better than anything I could ever do. The illustration was amazing. It was hands everywhere. I know. I mean, there was like photo realism. Oh, Andy harkness went there also. I'm an incredible people. So watch this. Watch this. I look in the walls and the artwork is so good. It's so good. And I remember telling the guy touring us around, these students are a hundred times better than anything I could ever do. And I felt intimidated. Why would I want to go to a school? I would have been the worst one at the school. And I'm telling you guys, if I chose that school, I would have been one of the worst artists there. But, you know, I have a theory. If you really want to grow in life, you need to surround yourself with people that are going to elevate you. Don't feel intimidated that you don't know something. Have the humility and the hunger to learn and put yourself in that environment. And that's exactly what I did. I chose the school and thank God they chose me. Nice. Now older song. That's awesome. So you learn that. Oh, sorry. I had a joke, and you just stepped on it again. Sorry. Tom learned that too, so he was born into the same womb that I was in so that he could grow as an artist too..

"Back to the show, and tonight we have a good and special friend. We've known for so many years back in their Disney days, of course. We knew him when he was in swaddling clothes, Tom. That's right, that's true. He was coming into my we trained him. I feel like we did, we suckled him into the animation industry. In so many different ways. Let's hear it for Saul blink. Thank God. Yes, I was suckled into the industry. That was that's an intro. I have not heard, but the first and last year. No, but there is some truth to that. You guys were have been in our always mentors to me. And it is such a privilege to not just be here on this incredible podcast. I know the incredible impact that this podcast does have, I speak from students all over the world who listen to it. So yeah, really, it's an honor to be here and of course it's just an honor to reconnect with old friends. So thanks for having me. Hey, I hear you there, man. As Pixar says, I'm turning red right now. Just blushing with that. Thank you so very much. And for those that don't know, Saul is, we knew him as just a young talented guy. Now he's an older talented guy, but he's a director. He has a podcast of his own, which we'll talk about in just a little bit, but director producer and an extraordinary artist in himself. So we're really happy to have Saul with us. Thank you, buddy, for being here. Thank you. Yes. Thanks, guys. Appreciate it. Well, I did promise and we got to do this quick Tony because I really want to get into Saul's life. But we said we would talk a little bit about the industry, any updates that you guys wanted to talk about. Things you know that are going on that we can talk about. Obviously some things we can't. Turning red dropped on Netflix. I think it was a fun movie. Let's just go around. Who liked it? I liked it. I did absolutely. Okay. I have four kids of puppy and three jobs, so translation. Yeah, I haven't seen it yet. But your kids have four kids. Have they? Two out of four have usually Saturday night family movie nights. We're saving to watch it again, but two of my kids are like, yeah, we just got to watch it. I'm just fine watch it. Preview it, let us know. But yeah, they enjoyed it a lot. They enjoyed it. Yeah. So my kids, my kids are grown, and so I end up watching it by myself, and then getting texts from them. Hey, did you see turning red? What do you think? Because they see it there in their own separate apartments and stuff. So yeah, we all liked it. It's a fun movie. Let's put it that way. I realized there was a deeper message to it than I even realized the first time. And I have four girls, and I don't know how this avoided how I missed it. But it's basically teen wolf with a panda bear, right? That's what the travel looks like. And a female too. I think you're dating yourself. Can I just date myself? Oh wait, there was a cartoon of that, I think. Yeah. It tastes like, you know, period administration kind of references. So let's just, wow, that's really breaking out of what's been done, huh? Yeah. But it is a story about becoming a changing and becoming so which is true of teen wolf too. Wait, team wolf two, the one where Jason Bateman, our team wolf also. Oh yeah, I met also. But yeah, that actually is really interesting to know. I do have three girls. And I do know my wife has had those talks with our girls. I always have two teenagers, 17 and 15, also. And yeah, that's good that that was addressed. Did you find it uncomfortable or were you guys cool with that? You know, I thought they were just making, I must admit, I missed that the whole turning red and all of that was, I guess, sort of a visitation in a way of going through that. Yeah. And I knew that they were making sort of like, oh, do you need pads? That kind of thing. They were references that were more direct. But that the whole thing, I guess, in a way, was at least I heard later. Yeah, there was a symbolic for that process happening to young girl. And I loved, I guess what I love more than anything that works for male or female is just that they really got into the persona of these young girls that friend group, I felt like it was not really reminiscent of my life, but I felt like I went somewhere new and I saw a group of very real characters that I loved. And I'll go a step deeper Tony. We have students about that age, well, let's say that personality type, right? Yeah. And that's what it reminded me the most of. My girls weren't quite like that. They weren't like geeky about certain things and boy bands, or at least not, well, a little bit. But not super deep that way. And I felt like that's what we were seeing on screen. We've all met people like that. And they were super cute as a girl band of buddies. Oh, that's awesome. Did they have the emotional depth of a Finding Nemo? Well, there was a mother daughter story that I wouldn't say it was as deep as say Finding Nemo, but it was close. It was called the strings. But it was a great image of the importance of friends and what that friend group means and I guess it was junior high. Junior high kind of situation. It really dug deep into that. And it was phenomenal for that reason. I felt like these are just the director and a bunch of her friends personified on screen. It felt very personal that way, I agree. In a good way. And I felt that with Luca too, from the director that he was Italian and it was kind of telling about his childhood, yeah. So I see that. Yeah, Murphy and the Murphy's in The Mitchells vs. the Machines, yeah. Thank you. Definitely. There it is. Murphy's either way. Even did our podcast and he was talking about how it was so much about him and his father, family trips that they took and stuff like that. And he tried to get all the awkward on screen, which was really effective. Translation for all the students listening, write what you know. That's right. Right. Here it is. If you write from your heart, if you write your experience, then it's real, it's sincere. It cuts through and that's refreshing. So that's really great to hear. I can't wait to watch that movie, guys. Look at that. We got a review and a lesson of the day out of it. All right, lesson if today. All right, let's turn back to our guest saw. Thank you all for participating in your thoughts there, but. I want to hear your Disney story. So what brought you to Disney as young little tyke that you were? Wow. Full of energy and viber viber. And vigor. Let's say that. Yeah, well, you know, first of all, it's always interesting when you see people or meet up with people who knew you at stages of your life that were so far back. Were you embarrassed of? That's right. That's exactly right. Or you knew the embarrassing thing or you saw them do embarrassing things. Yes. Their story is about time we all have stories. I get Tom stories. We'll get there. Okay. But yeah, look, when I grew up in New York, I didn't grow up in Hollywood..
Israel: A Nation With No King
"I'm talking to our friend Bill Federer. You can find him at American minute dot com and other places. He's written many wonderful books. Bill, you were just sharing something that is really not often enough mentioned. It's almost never mentioned. So take us back before we have king Saul roughly a thousand BC for 400 years after between Moses and Saul. We have millions of people, the nation of Israel, effectively governing themselves. What am I missing? Right, so Yale has on its coat of arms. Hebrew characters. The scholars at this time were called Christian hebraists, John Sadler, whose sister Anne married John Harvard. You had all these different scholars studying this first 400 year period when Israel came out of Egypt before they got king song. Now, one of my books I wrote is called who was the king in America? And I actually spent a few years researching every century of recorded human history from the elamites, which became Persia to the Assyrian to the neo Assyrians, the Babylonians to Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, 2000 years of Egyptian pharaohs, 5000 years of Chinese emperors, Indian maharajas, the whole world, the most common form of governments, kings. And with military advancements, these kingdoms get bigger to find the king of England had the biggest. But the first instance in recorded human history of a nation with no king is Israel that first 400 years when they came out of Egypt. So 1400 BC, give or take a couple century Israel comes out of Egypt and for 400 years, no can. We don't really appreciate it until you realize when you look at all the other countries. That this is the first instance in all of recorded human history of a nation with millions of people in no
Rich Valdes: One Rule That Stands out From Saul Alinsky
"So much of what we see today it's the radical left It's playing everyone against everyone else playing them against themselves One of alinsky's rules that stood out to me was a rule that I used a lot when I worked with James O'Keefe at project veritas back in 2014 2015 I ran the national field operation for James I was his director of special operations And making left wing radicals live up to their own book of rules was a big part of that work One of the alinsky rules is make the enemy live up to his own book of rules Here's a quote from alinsky Ridicule is man's most potent weapon There is no defense It's almost impossible to counter attack riddle Ridiculous excuse me So when associate justice Sonia Sotomayor from the boogie down Bronx the land of AOC all our crazy When she spreads misinformation to the masses on COVID and she doesn't face any ridicule what are we to what are we to surmise from that That we're not making them live up to their own book of
Saul Alinsky Dedicated an Epigraph to Lucifer
"One of those radicals was so alinsky Now he famously dedicated one of the epigraphs in the introduction of his book rules for radicals to the fallen angel Lucifer Here's what alinsky wrote Quote lest we forget at least over the shoulder and acknowledgment to the very first radical from all our legends mythology and history the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom Lucifer That's all alinsky
Harvard Profresor Ruth Wisse on the Significance of Writer Saul Bellow
"And I'm talking to Ruth wise, longtime Professor of literature at Harvard, now at the tikva fund, Ruth thanks for joining me. Let's talk a little bit about Saul Bellow. You knew it's all Bello. I never met Saul Bellow, but my longtime editor was his son Adam Bello, so I've gotten to know the father, so to speak through the sun. But you would agree what knew that Bella was one of the towering figures of literature in the 20th century. Do you agree with that and why? What is it that made him so important? Well, he's certainly important to me because he was my favorite writer long before I met him, that's partly because he comes from Montreal, which is where I grew up. So it was very homey. But it's also because of the kind of writer that he was, he came on the scene, I think, understanding that literature was enormously important. And I think that one of his insights was that the world was becoming more disjointed that the consciousness was being torn in a hundred directions. Well, if it was that way in his day, you can imagine how much more so it is in our day when there are so many things bombarding you. And so I think that one of the things that he felt was that the novel could really provide the most entire picture of what our human experience is through the prism of an individual. And in his writing, that individual is very often a kind of solve Bello. He doesn't choose he doesn't choose to write about a person who's different from himself, but rather some projection of himself, so that it's always a very erudite person, a good person, basically, but struggling with difficult

"In effect the Democrat party is the media and the media is the Democrat party And they all embrace this radical American Marxist ideology Many of them are from a younger generation radicals in the past They've worked for Democrats so they work for causes but they've gone through the propaganda male that has defined our colleges and universities now They're being taught to promote this kind of Marxist activism Don't go for impartial Don't go for objective No no no that's not the profession anymore And they of course they embrace as American marxists Saul linsky who I've talked to you about for 20 years on the radio And Claude and piven and the others
How Derrick Bell Coined 'Critical Race Theory'
"The baton was picked up by a guy by the name of Derek bell He was a Professor of law at Harvard And he started to develop critical theory as a race issue Critical race theory He always felt that he was looked down upon that he didn't succeed in academia although he was relatively successful but that is scholarship was not embraced in fact he was viewed as a real whack job by many including Thomas Saul With this fringe ideology he was developing or expanding on critical race theory Taking this notion of law existing for those who dominate the power to the argument that the society exists for the dominant race White people And so again he was a Marxist Markus was a Marxist Most of the professors promoting this are marxists And this is in the 1970s so he's promoting critical race theory particularly in law schools As a Marxist approach an Americanized Americanized Marxist approach To seize on the past imperfections of society or anybody's imperfections Anybody's resentment jealousies anger And create a theory around it The theory being critical race
Derrick Bell Pushed for Marxist Model in America, Created Critical Race Theory
"And so what happened was they said well this isn't working We're not going to be able to overthrow the American system this way So there were splinter theories And one of them came out of Harvard Law School that I've been in a med Derrick bell who was an average or worse law professor In the 1970s And he felt that we should basically apply this Marxist model to race In many of his contemporaries thought he was unhinged Thought that he was a fringe 80 lock Thomas Saul used it announced him is really kind of a dumb guy who didn't make a whole lot of sense But dumb or not doesn't matter Over time he taught enough people and another professors joined in as they became more and more radicalized And this is something that has now permeated throughout colleges and universities starting in law schools In starting in the Ivy League schools And it's called critical race
"saul" Discussed on Let's Start A Cult
"Goes good. I like that. This aggression was encouraged by both newton and harvey according to the. Yeah they were like this is great. Keep going his. Yeah get that. Collect theater collective. There's nothing dork. Year than theater nerds arguing over theater spaces stage. We can do improv better than you us. According to the sullivan. Paul sprecher foot. All the members were invited to come down and occupy the theater. The cops came in in the middle of the night and we had barricaded the doors. It was very exciting saul wanted to teach people how to stand up to the cops. He liked that kind of confrontation and quote. Which i mean. Fuck cops i guess you know like but this is an extreme where i think the cops might have been in the right to attack. Yeah i mean this was like This would have been like nineteen seventies new york too so yes edward great through pretty wild back then it was kind of a warriors style right. Yeah this is probably like before. There was any amount of oversight of policing exactly this disturbing nature of the sullivan. Stu would only escalate from there on march twenty eighth nineteen seventy-nine reactor at a nuclear generating station in dauphin county. Pennsylvania partially melted resulting in a radiation leak that many feared would affect the local population the three mile island accident as it was referred to afterwards is now known as the most significant nuclear power plant accident in american history garnering a five to seven rating on the international nuclear event scale. Pretty hot. it's at a seven. Seems like that could be at a five or ten you know. Yeah this was. This was a good nuclear event. Not a perfect one. Yeah it didn't kill enough people often try next don't you. I loved it. There's like a rotten tomatoes style service for nuclear disasters. Five out of seven from critics. But it's a seven seven as whereas the audience is concerned radiated tomatoes. Maybe there you. That's what it is besides causing widespread panic about the potential negative effects of nuclear power. The three mile island accident also drove the sullivans to relocate to orlando florida in a bid to avoid escape the imminent destruction of new york city. When this failed to happen they returned to the upper west side. Were those who had declined to make the move or ostracized by newton and the rest of the institutes appointed leaders. That's pretty interesting. Yeah it causes a divide between the haves and the have nots. It's like we've been to florida. We know what true freedom is you. You haven't lived until you've been orlando. It's like It's like covert when all the new yorkers moved to florida when to get three no mask. Mandates mandates yep much the same it all. It's all exactly the same. Even at the time. Florida in mandate anything. That's why the sullivans loved it. Yeah there were like a cult. Welcome in he'll fit right in with the other ones. We've got plenty of colts. We've got a spot on the by you for you. Have some oranges. The three mile island accident proved to be a turning point for the sullivan institute. It changed the dynamics among members with newton behaving more and more radically as the months passed for instance he believed that the cia cia was interfering with joanne harvey's work and so he had a room built was still played walls so that she could edit her films in peace. Well i never. I never considered that. That's actually a pretty good idea. You should think about that you know. Yeah if our creative pursuits. Don't do. Well just blame it on the government. Interfering with them at the output wasn't what we intended. I think i think with your line of work. They might already be watching. That might be. Well received their most of your listeners. Actually the shake. We'll take whatever it takes. Yeah please subscribe. And so he also began seeing enemies everywhere which led him to intimidate an abuse his followers in a misguided attempt to protect himself and this is the classic cult leader trope and they all go down this where they think. Everyone's after them and out to get them psychology guy. Why would that be. I don't know probably like a little bit of narcissism and they. They definitely think that like you know. They're like paranoid and anxious about anybody doing anything that is in them. Abc control of it. It's probably control thing to right like you know you spend so much time telling other people that you know best that eventually you start to believe it right and then you know you're you're still aware enough to understand that not. Everybody thinks that you do know best. And so i think that's very undercutting to a person with the ego that it takes to be a cult leader reid well hundred percent. You guys are good. Wow are you professional idiots. Josh charge me for the hour. No this is on the house. Allow perfect first ones freeze. How we do it for our own narcissism. Just like you say you guys are good but you're not with the cia. Are you moving. Leader amy siskind. Who had been a member of the sullivan in stew. For more than two decades recalled that quote even had this idea on how to deal with people who were against you and his idea was basically intimidation and violence in her many incidents throughout the history of the group of intimidation and quote. So how. I love this. He's like i got this great new idea joanne. I got this great idea intimidate and abused people. She's like that's an original one. I've never ever seen that before. I don't think another person's ever tried to intimidate or abuse. The people around them to get them to do what they want. Anyway i thought hitler tw- twenty years ago i learned i. I know a thing or two. Because i seen a thing or two. Yeah he's great guy. He also encourage this behavior among the sullivans to which resulted in the institutes therapist using fear tactics to manipulate their patients in order to get them to act as they wished according to test. Ko of penn state university desire to control. Who had kids. And how many and who with one account of when a member tried to leave to sullivan's track the man down to subway and dangled him over the tracks threatening to kill him if he left the movement. One of those men was newton son and quote. Wait a minute sold newton. Kids got to hang around. Yeah oh yeah. The rules don't apply to newton. Who can he makes their wives. And he gets to have old fam- he gets to have multiple families exactly and that's why isaac newton's also didn't abide by his own laws. Yeah i guess if his sons doing this i guess you could say the apple in full from the draw own ges. I'll give you that one all right. We'll start running counter on puns in the senate there. We go if you hit five. You're allowed back. We'll be no problem to add to that. Newton also acquired a fleet of school buses and motorcycles claiming that it was necessary in case of an emergency former sullivan. Dr michael bray was put in charge of this and he later recalled that quote. We'd have very planned out escape. Route that involved. Walking to george washington bridge in terms of the leadership's children it meant putting them in backpacks and then writing them out. In an who'd motorcycles which we had about six of an quote by the time the sullivan institute had managed to amass approximately twelve million dollars in property assets. Apart from the several apartment buildings in the upper west side they also owned a resort in the catskills and a house in vermont all of these refunded by members who had been voluntarily giving up the majority of their salaries for the purpose betterment of the group. Oh my god. And andy art. Do you.

All right i. i appreciate that. So fred's will be thumb bunk fosters and and they will like it so yeah some some aggressive cross pollination going on conversion well guys in today's episode of let's start called. We will be talking about the story of the sullivan institute. An infamous sex cult based in new york city that existed from the late nineteen fifties to the early nineteen ninety s established by a psychotherapist who aimed to promote his mentors teaching it instead became a group that four members to give up their children in favor of sexually liberated lifestyle. The so what are your thoughts on promiscuous lifestyle with no kids. Wow i mean the bachelor life. Sounds like a dream come true. I mean every night down at the applebees hunting for strange. The apple beats. That's the life for me. Yeah that's right. Well where else would you rather be a friday night. No kids nobody to answer to nobody. But you and the bartender jeff even just little late all your problems to lay at his feet because he's here to serve you. Well that's the that is a very interesting take on on this cult but so you guys might fit right in by the sounds of it. Wow wow yeah we've never fit in anywhere that's a i. Yeah usually people tell us where to aspirin for colts. You guys are way too much. We have this too much personality. We used to know. This guy's name was charles manson. He was like i. Listen i gotta kick you guys out so it's not really working out. Your personalities are a little aggressive for me. The drugs are not working on you. And your harshened my buzz to so. Take a hike artery. Well let's hop into the early years of the leader saul newton. Not much is actually known about the early years of saul bernard cohen. Who would later go by the name. Saul newton what is known though is that he was born on june twenty-fifth nineteen o six in the city of saint john in new brunswick canada lewis canadian. We claim him. Oh vilo yeah another rotten canadian immigrant come into the united states. It's starting something weird. I him then drake than justin bieber. It doesn't ever end. I apologize after attending the university of wisconsin. He went on to study at the university of chicago. Where iran social circles that ultimately resulted in him becoming communist and antifascist these ideologies led him to serve in the spanish civil war which lasted from nineteen thirty six until nineteen thirty nine which is super weird that he was like. I can go fight in another country. Civil war does that. Does that not seem odd to you. This is already what a life story. Yeah even already. He immigrated from. Canada went to school in the united states and then fought in the spanish civil war. So taylor's all this time. What a life. He could wrap it up there and he could write so many. Yeah but wait. There's more so much more. Afterwards he was drafted into united states. Army to fight against the axis powers during world war two. The post war years saw newton studying to become a psychotherapist although he maintained a keen interest in politics and psychology around this time he married dr jane pierce a self taught marxist therapist whom he had met while working. At william allison's white institute in new york city co founded in nineteen forty. Three by the renowned psychiatrist harry stack sullivan. The william allison white institute promised to train students. In psychoanalysis and psychotherapy it was widely regarded as revolutionary since it's teaching steered clear of conservative mainstream ideas in favor ones that were newer less explored and perceived as more radical. You know radical like not lobotomize. Impede right it was about say radical far out radical like writing skateboard while deng. It's cool mom. All the other kids are doing it. Psychology is cool mom. Shortly after harry. Stack sullivan's death in january nineteen forty nine newton and pierced. Left the william allinson white institute to start their own. They called it the sullivan institute for research in psychoanalysis just quite a matt mouthful but you can see they named it after the man they mired the man who just passed away so they got they did. They did learn a lot from them but clearly not enough yet. They might have missed a couple chapters. Yeah they skipped a few classes. Newton pearson vision there institute to provide students with an unadulterated version of his namesake's teachings. But it didn't take long for this to be distorted and ruin. thanks in part to the couple's political ideologies. Kind of like how the idea of this podcast started off with great intentions but my fascist ideologies of ruined abbey and. Yeah i mean whatever. Our political ideologies are have also contributed to the decline of this episode. You guys you guys just believe in Alien pyramids right. Yes that's right that's very love. We love to see extraterrestrials arranging themselves in the shape of a pyramid and cheering for the home team. In the shape of orion's belt so b sullivan institute opened its doors in nineteen fifty seven attracting many artists and intellectuals all of whom were taught that mental illnesses and social anxiety were caused by the traditional nuclear family unit which consisted of parents and their children because of this they were prohibited from engaging exclusive committed relationships with newton and pierce encouraging everyone to have regular sex with each other. Yeah i just have sex with whoever. You want a winning me over with this philosophy. I'm through the door my nut. I have a pamphlet in hand. My hat is backwards. I'm ready to listen. I got my skateboard in the other. Yup let's.

Being Empowered by the Holy Spirit
"I samuel chapter ten verse six. Then the spirit of the lord will rush upon you and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. Now this verse. Don't miss the picture that correlation between the spirit of god on someone and prophecy proclamation of god's word. This is a picture. We see all throughout the old testament at different points. Here it's with saul this promise the spirit lord will come upon you and the result is you will speak. You'll be turned into another person. You'll be able to speak in supernatural ways and we see this again all throughout the old testament when you see prophets. What's the prophet empowered by the of god to do. A profit is empowered by the spirit of god to proclaim the word of god with supernatural power. Now what's interesting is when you get to acts chapter two and you see the holy spirit. Come down at pentecost what happens in that scene. All these people start to speak the word of god and all these different languages and peter stands up and preaches. He quotes from joel chapter two. About how the spirit of god will come upon men and women and they shall. Prophesy it's interesting. You look in luke and acts so lucrative both the book of luke and the book of acts and every time. There's eight different times where we see the spirit of god filling someone and every time that person speaks or proclaims god's word flowing from that filling of the spirit so the picture. I want to encourage you with today for everyone who has trusted in. Jesus you have the holy spirit living in you. And i want to ask you to consider what purpose is the holy spirit living in you. Four and based on all we've seen in the old testament what we see in the new testament and specifically i would point to acts chapter one verse eight. You'll receive power when the holy spirit comes upon you and you will be jesus says my what my witnesses
The Mysteries of Detection Engineering: Revealed!
"Is a fun episode today because we are talking about the discipline of detection engineering. Which i think i can summarize and give away a joke from the show as putting a pm in your sock. What do you think about that. Anton is that a fair summary. Actually yes but. I still think that there is a lot more to this. And frankly the whole bryn engineering discipline to the detection. Space has been a lot harder than people think because we do see a lot of people who are in deductions as opposed to engineering them. No they are talented craftsman. But they're not engineers maybe their titles in the saul communes to security craftsman Because they're really good they make detections but can they scale. What about the notorious busted. What if they hit by a bus. Does your soul go kaput. Like what happens so to me. The engineering part is the elusive difficult. Part of building detections that well get improved that scale if catch attackers unit to catch. Don't waste time to me. There's a lot more engineering needed. And i don't feel like many organizations actually have engineering in their security engineering. I think that's a really reasonable point. One of the things. I've gotten feedback on in. The past is avoiding the appearance of artisanal rules. We don't wanna be in a world where it requires ten thousand hours of expertise to craft role. You need to build to churn out high quality rules that consider the user at the end of the day. Well you sell ruled for money. Sort of your product vendors but if i am in my own salk and building my own custom rules i think the logic is somewhat applicable. But it's less critical. I agree you can be successful. But then you have a lot of fragile elements because of your approach to detection. If you are a detection craftsman you may be successful but the whole thing the whole system again. Another tip from the podcast that you'd listening in a few minutes is that the whole system approaches critical. I think that's absolutely right.
German Philosopher Herbert Marcuse Was the Architect of the New Left
"The author of the new left. Who's behind all of this so really important question now. There isn't a single person. go to karl marx. You can go to hey goal and the haley dialectic and the long march institutions and a german historisches view of our experience in our existence but there is one person that every conservative should become familiar with now. I want to give a hat tip to the great newt. Gingrich newt gingrich did something back in two thousand twelve where he insistently introduced the author and the activist saul alinsky into the mainstream of the conservative movement. When i go to republican lincoln. Reagan dinners when. I go to tea party. Meetings truly don't exist anymore. When i go to any sort of function and i say saul alinsky. I'd say seventy or eighty percent of the room knows who i'm talking about now. Actually i've been going across the country. Speaking at churches you'd be amazed at how few churches know who saul. Alinsky is a man who wrote rules for radicals thirteen. We've covered them extensively on the show and the dedication. That book was to lucifer. Who he said was the first ever rebel trying to tell me. We're not spiritual war. Oh charlie it's just a bunch of matter versus matter notes not to spiritual work. They admit it's a spiritual war now. The man who is the architect of a lot of chaos. You're living through the man who is largely responsible for a lot of the academic backing of is a man by the name of herbert markova using the frankfurt school. He was a communist. That was kicked out of the frankfurt. School in germany found a safe space and the united states of america taught at harvard. Columbia brandeis and eventually settled the university of san diego. He was the architect of what is now known as the new left.
Co-Founder Marko Anastasov on the Creation of Semaphore
"Marco and staff has been working with computers for a longtime. He grew up in former yugoslavia in the nineties. When there was civil war hyperinflation in the economy was taken back twenty years. His father was electronics guy. There was always a computer around the house. He found himself fascinated with information. And the things. You could conjure up on the magic screens. And he found that computers were place. You could build things that were not influenced by the outside world as a kid. He played sports mainly volleyball. He's taken many lessons from his time playing volleyball. Where a group of people have shared sense of purpose driving towards a goal while building applications under the guise of his web development agency rendered text. He and his fellow builders saw a need to have a way of automating the processes of building testing and integrating and doing so fast. This is the creation story of semaphore. Semaphore is cloud based product for college. You companies our customers are software development teams and semaphore helps them. Automates the process of testing and deploying code. That's kind of a big deal these days because you know software is built collaboratively. The problem that people need saul is how. How do you build software together. You know multiple people adding new codes implications. How do we make sure that it's everything's actually working right. So that's why in modern software development. You know there is an emerging practice of automating various phases of testing and delivering basically applications to end users and customers. So we help them do that. Productively because our product is thing here of that whole aspect of building software for them. Prior to creating similar we were small web development consultancy company was called rendered text. It's still call that but semaphore is what more more now in the world in our practice of basically building applications for clients typically like small start ups we basically saw needs to have how way of automating these processes of testing and integrating software together

"saul" Discussed on Life Together
"I honestly have come to the place in my faith that i wouldn't stumble me. I would be fine to keep following. Jesus but i wonder what it takes the sacrifice it takes for someone who so convinced that their lifestyle and their parents and their grandparents and generations before them. That said we are right in this venture that there's zealously pursuing a path that leads to hell that there's times in life that we can zealously pursue a path that were so convinced as right but is not the past that god wants us to zealously pursue and that brings me to our second question is how does jesus change. What you zealously pursue i think about the disciples. They were zealous for christ to the point of horrible persecution. Like weird stuff. Like how do people come up with being burned alive like. Oh let's do something really mean to this person. Let's burn alive. How do people think about that or some. Some disciples were sued by saws crucified upside down or boiled and bowling oil. I mean just horrible horrible ways to die right but they were so zealously convinced with a divine convention that they knew that jesus is worth dying for. They didn't make the story of the resurrection. And they knew this. Because they saw the risen lord and savior's so thank back. When jesus died on a cross he even told them before he died.
