"Welcome back. We're talking about innovation at the Federal Reserve with the chief innovation officer, Sena tadeja. Artificial intelligence is one of the most innovative of all technologies is the fed using AI in any way. And if so, how? Yeah, absolutely, you know, AI machine learning have been technologies that have been deployed within the fed before my coming in, you know, we're starting to do a lot of work around quantum. Now quantum, if you look at the S curve of innovation, it's not ready for execution. But as leaders within the Federal Reserve system, it is something that we should be learning and exploring and understanding and what fed is uniquely qualified to kind of lean in and explore experiment or execute. Can you give me an example of how the fed might be using artificial intelligence? The fed employees over 5000 technologists. We are a massive technology business. Think of all of the payment rails that the fed runs in supports every day. Behind the scenes, there are product leaders. There are technologies. There are developers, there are scrum teams that are making sure that we are building scaling and operating these systems with efficiency. The Federal Reserve continues to print paper, though the US Treasury, is continuing to print all the money on paper. We know it's not really paper, but the close enough. And we spend a lot of money printing that paper. We spent a lot of money transferring it from bank to bank around the country. We spent a lot of money on security to safeguard all of that money. There aren't too many other businesses that will still operating in that way. We've gone digital everywhere else, and that raises the basic question. Why are we not creating a digital dollar in turning money into electronic format like everything else? This is known as a Central Bank, digital currency, CBDC, and this is a big conversation all around the world. Central banks globally are all exploring the idea of launching a digital version of their currency a couple of them already have, as you know. So tell us about the U.S. Central Bank. Tell us about the Federal Reserve and its attitude about a CBDC. Are you working on one? Do you think we might eventually see one? And what are the details? You know, it is not a binary answer of should we or shouldn't we? Here's a whole list of questions that we're still grappling with. We are currently in an open comment period and we're encouraging anybody who would like to share their perspectives because we are right now, our goal is to take in a diversity of perspectives as we interrogate these questions so one of the things is read the paper and please join in the comment period, Google the future of money or the Federal Reserve discussion document and it will come up. Let me ask you this. I'm going to put you on the spot and I will provide on your behalf. All the disclosures that you are going to want to make sure everybody understands that I'm going to ask Sena for personal conjecture that she is not speaking on behalf of the fed and she is not outlining any official statement on behalf of the Federal Reserve. With that in mind, you ready for this, so Nina? Bring it. Assuming everything goes as well as easy as it could possibly go. And the conclusion is that the fed does want to launch a CBDC. What's the earliest? That a digital dollar could actually be implemented. Oh man, thank you for all those disclosure statements. I appreciate it. This is total conjecture and assumption. I think that 5 year mark seems like a logical starting point. Because there's so much that needs to be interrogated and it's not a unilateral decision by the fed. I think a lot of folks would assume that this isn't something that will happen for decades. My point is, I think we need to recognize that digital money is in our future yeah, I mean, in the future is very exciting and how often do you get to think about these macro questions and how to maybe shape them, you know, I was in around when the Internet was going commercial and changed everything in the world. So I think the fact that leaders like you are obsessing about this is pretty cool. You know, you were one of the OGs in the financial planning industry that started talking about Bitcoin and crypto when it was not fashionable, right? I was hanging on significant career risk where people think I got yelled at us and laughed out of plenty of board of directors and senior leader meetings trying to say, hey, there's something happening here and we need to be thinking about it and doing something with it. And I think people started to figure out what are those killer apps that are going to come out of this technology and ecosystem so I find that one of the most encouraging signals. We're talking about information on the Federal Reserve. If a digital money is in our future and some fashion the number more or what happened to you, the conservatives are scary. I think it's always a little bit of both with any new technology. Oftentimes when you're leading innovation, the question you get so used to getting asked is, well, what is the risk of doing this? But there's a follow up question I always ask, which is, what is the risk of not doing it? And we have to have that honest conversation. And it's our job to manage mitigate, minimize those risks, but then we also have to talk about what is the risk if we don't drive this change, right? But when the iPhone first came out, it was so we could play candy crush, right? Nobody thought that this would be the device on which we would be running our personal and professional lives. And if you suggested that, people would be like, what are you talking about? So I obsess about what is the next generation of consumers, what behaviors and expectations are they growing up with because they're going to have need that we have to meet if we are going to be relevant. Any business of any strike? That is the chief innovation officer of the Federal Reserve here on the truth about your future. So Nina, thanks so much for joining us on the program today. Thank you for the opportunity, Rick. And again, as Sena has said, if you would like to comment on the fed's efforts to investigate a Central Bank digital currency, just Google the future of money and you'll be able to make your comments that the fed staff will read. Just Google, the future of money. Stay with us for more here on the truth about your future.

"Every day and take off your pajamas in the morning. All the stuff we used to do, we never stopped doing. Number two, I think, yeah, it was a challenge. But, I mean, I don't know. I think we as parents, we, as adults, need more than ever to get these kids moving and get them challenged and assign them up for some sports, something. Make them learn a new language, make them read more. They don't have to be this book, make them read richest stuff, whatever. But I think the kids need to know that school was closed, and you had to do stuff on Zoom. But like, I don't know. I think it's our job as parents as adults to show them. I always show my kids how much worse it could be. I got a buddy Marco, fastest runner in the country on prosthetics. He had both his legs chopped off another story would take us 20 minutes. But whenever the kids are complaining about anything, let's get Marco on the phone. How's he doing? What a super aesthetic. You got to do zoom. That's a ninja move. Yeah. You know? How many think serve more broadly this swath, this age group of young people, they're being told that the world is a scary place. And when they go to certain places like their health is at risk. And what does that do to their like mentality over time, when they're being impulsed or message with that constantly? Eat more salad. That's right. You know what I mean? Like I try to show them that news is a business. Food companies are a business. Dad used to work on Wall Street. If we had, if rich and I owned a food company or news company, and we were the most altruistic people on the planet, but we had to make our quarterly numbers. We'd figure out a way to sell more news. We figured out a way to sell more product that a cheaper price. So any chance I get, I try to teach them, it's a business. I'm not a conspiracy guy. I'm just a reality guy. Take care of yourself. I get it. What do you think is what's your big struggle right now? Like, what is the thing that you're trying to develop more resilience around? Personally, you're overcoming. I mean, is it just getting over the hump with the business of Spartan or what is the challenge that you want to take on yourself this year? My biggest challenge right now for the business, which is now I've dropped a bomb on my family, is I can't get anybody to the office. You know? And everybody's moved to like, they want to be on the coast in Maine or I live in Vermont. I want to live here. Everybody's reimagined their priorities. Their values. And so maybe I'm old fashioned. But I want everybody in an office. Not 7 days a week, right? But we should be able to get the office four days a week. We should be able to build a culture, we should be able to collaborate, work together, share ideas, we do put on 400 plus events when things are humming. It is a complicated business. Oh, but Joe, I weigh so much time driving. I could just do it on Zoom or whatever. I get it, but then why are we pushing kids to get back in school? Why don't they just all do it from their computer? Like there is value to being together. So I'm opening an office in Florida. It's not for tax reasons. I'm hoping that I could get folks together in an office in a state where folks do still get together. And my family's moving to Florida. Oh, wow. And so my wife is in Florida at this moment, decorating an apartment. We broke the news to our kids two weeks ago. They're moving to Florida. Wow. And so it's going to be a personal challenge. And a business challenge. Now the Boston officers stay, the 20 people that are coming to do it. It'll just be a smaller office. Any new hires will take place in Florida. And so I'm going to completely disrupt my life. I'm going to make it really hard on myself for the business and that's what we're going to do. You're not the first. I was just talking to some Friends yesterday who are lifelong New Yorkers and they're getting ready to move to Florida too. Yeah. A lot of people. Yeah, and by the way, I would never move to Florida. It doesn't seem like the place for you. Not a place for me. I would never do it, but I was talking to a guy. You're gonna love this. And he's got 80,000 ft² in New York, and we were on the phone three months ago. And I was like, Ryan, I'm losing my mind. I can't get anybody to come to the office. And he showed me around his office. There was no one there. 80,000 ft². He said, but my office on office or something. Downtown. Downtown. But he goes, my big office in Indianapolis is booming. Everybody shows up to work with their lunch pals. They've been getting they never skipped work. And so I flew to Indianapolis because I wanted to see this. Unbelievable. And so I started to explore opening an office in Indianapolis. And my friend from sex with Davis said you're an idiot. Wherever you open this office, you have to move to to get it going. Are you going to live in Indianapolis? And so Florida became the better of alternative. Wow, man, that's a big shift. Yeah. Do you ever get the itch to race and dip your toe back into that? Or is that too dangerous? I mean, no, it's not dangerous. I would love, I would love to race. Maybe it's an excuse when I say this, but like once I started having kids and I have the business and you and I talked about resilience before in the definition of that, how could I do all three? Because racing, I was pretty on. Like, I'll see you guys later. I got to go to Switzerland. That's what I meant like dangerous because you'll check out. I'll check out. And look, I got a little, I got a little fix of my addiction in Abu Dhabi. I got to run around a desert, right? I get little quick hits going to our races. I was in the Atacama desert. I got to go to cool, cool spots and without the requirement to put in those crazy weeks of training away from everybody. Yeah. Let's wrap this up with some parting thoughts on resilience, the importance of discipline, all of these skills, this toolbox that I think we all need a little bit more of in our lives as we're contemplating manifesting finally the shit in our lives that we want to see happen. Correct me if I'm wrong and I'll leave it with this. Characters in books and in movies or even if you're listening to a podcast characters that have tremendous discipline and grit and virtue and just stand in the way of everybody and just get the job done. Those are people, we like to read arrows. I was a heroes. And so why wouldn't you want to be a hero? And it all starts with you, whoever you are listening to this. Be the hero. And you could do that by walking a mile a day and eating a salad and taking a cold shower. It's so easy to be a hero today. You know? In the four day work week world. Never been easier to stand out. It's so easy to stand out. So the parting words would be just be the hero of your story. Think about that kid I just described from Idaho. This is so easy. It's so easy. It would be much harder if this was The Great Depression World War I World War II. There were a lot of there's a lot of competition. Now the competition's at 13 year old Chinese boy that showed up at my office. Words to live by. You're awesome. Happy new year. Happy new year, people. Thanks, buddy. I appreciate you. The book, whether you have kids or not, I think, is an instructive road map for all the things that we were talking about today. It's really well rendered. So congrats on the book. Ten rules for resilience. Joe's pretty easy to find online. Sign up for a Spartan race, get involved, get active. And don't.

"The farm all summer. Wow. Ended up winning the death race. Wow. Completely transformed. He couldn't finish the kid's death race we did. We put him in the kids death race. Couldn't finish it. Came back for the adult one. Licked his wounds and ended up winning it. Wow. See the kid that's in the book. You tell the story about him. I think like the mom wanted to pull him out or something. No, I think that's different. Yeah. We had a big problem with parents with kids texting their parents and saying, this guy, Joe is nuts. This farm is a prison camp. You got to get us out of here. And there were some parents that pulled the ripcord that came out and parachuted their children out. And ultimately regret it, because it wasn't that bad. I mean, Karen, but your perspective on that is not normal. No. Look, I could think of an instance right one night where we had the kids on the farm. For those that don't know because rich and I just dove into it, it was many weeks, we had a one week course, a two week course. As many weeks where I would invite friends and family, rich's kids, let's say would come billionaires kids, inner city kids, whoever I could convince that comes to the farm. And mountain warfare school instructor wakes him up at 5 in the morning. It's just like you would envision a boot camp. They're in cold water in the pond, they're getting screamed at, they're getting organized, they're learning some basic things that everybody should know. And then they're getting breakfast, they're hiking up and down the mountain most of the day. At some point we give them an hour and the river where they got to play and frolic around in the river. And then back to hard work, and they go to bed at like 8 p.m. every night. Well, I would give them their phones back at night, and I didn't realize that they were texting their parents, like this guy's nuts. You gotta get me out of here, prison camp. And some parents that were friends of mine wouldn't engage with the kids. It's hilarious to read this one set of parents that said, oh, it sounds like a peloton class. Kid is like, if you don't even know how hard this is, you and dad would die. You were here. Oh, but you'll get a 6 pack. Get me out of here. Or do you want us to talk to Joe? Do not talk to Joe. You clearly don't know him. He's a crazy person. If he knows that I texted you, those texts would be taking place at a time at night where I might be giving them ice cream 'cause they had a great job. They did a great job that night. So juxtaposition, I'm seeing a visual of them having a good time. And they're texting like the sky is falling. Right. And so you got to beware, right? Because kids know how to push buttons. And if we constantly rescue them from, I didn't sign them. They didn't join the Chinese military. Right. Right? This is like, come on, I'm a normal person. Kinda. One of the things that you do with these kids or just any of these people that have come through the farm and I'm sure you do this out on the Spartan race courses is when they reach that point of saying I'm going to quit. You're like, okay, just go ten more meters, then you can quit, it's totally fine. And just get them to like, it's back to that little digestible step that you can take to shake free of whatever that mindset is that is telling you that you're done. I learned that from a woman named Lisa Smith years and 25 years ago, 27 years ago I was learning how to run these long distance runs and I said, I just want to quit. She was running with me, and she said, well, why don't we just run to that telephone pole? And then you run to the next telephone poem. And before you know it, you've run to 870 telephone poles and you've got the job done. And so it has to be bite sized chunks because it's just too big for the brain, especially kids brain. Yeah, you could quit, but not until later today. Later today we have the quitting bus coming. Oh, it didn't come tonight. Tomorrow you can quit. I'm sure the bus will be here. Yeah. With all the people that have come through the farm and all the people that you've touched through Spartan, what do you think? If you have to extrapolate from that dataset of human beings, what are the themes or the kind of commonalities or things that you see time and time again where people are like losing the plot or failing to see what's right in front of them that could free them. I mean, Abu Dhabi, two weeks ago, and a guy comes out very common. Guy comes out Joe. Oh my God, I read your book. I don't say anymore. Come with me. And I go get a camera because I've seen this play 10,000 times. We got a little camera rolling, our phone, somebody's holding a phone, and I said, all right, tell me the story..

"But I've lived three lives in one, you know? My assistant thinks I'm a lunatic, right? Because if I'm coming to LA to see rich role, we could squeeze three other meetings. And then I could get on a red eye and go home. And so rest has never been a priority. I sleep when I can, not when I have to, so if I'm on a plane, pass out, wherever I am, I'm just falling asleep to catch up and then just get recharged. People refer to me as the guy on a phone battery that always is really close to running out of juice. Never, but never quite dies. It just didn't like 8% all the time. And then I had a navy seal who was asleep expert on the podcast recently. And he was the same way. And the navy seals were the same way. And he tried to talk to the folks that are in charge of the navy seals, and they all laughed at him. He's like, you know, I think we should we should have them sleep a little more. They should take naps, and they left him out of the room. Which you would get, I would have laughed a matter of a room, right? You need 8 hours. I think here's what I came to the conclusion. Ready for this, your audience is gonna love this. You and I should go on this mantra. We and this is from my buddy Nick Morris two days ago. We need to set our alarm clocks for when to go to bed, not to wake up. That's a super interesting idea. We have it backwards. If you set your alarm for that time to go to bed, you should never need to set the alarm to wake up. Yeah. And I think our problem. In the last week, since I was on what that navy seal, I've been in bed by no later than 9 p.m.. On my own, I was up at four and changed this morning. Like, no problem. You know? So if it starts to bleed into ten, ten 30, 11 for some people who knows what time for others. Yeah. It's too late. Yeah, and the thing, you know, for the younger people listening, when you get older, I'm waking up at four, four 30, no matter what. So I better go to bed at 9 because I can't sleep in no matter what. So it's super important to me to be in bed at 9. So we should start this narrative that everybody's got it wrong. You got to set your alarm clock at night. I like the to go to bed. And I don't know if you believe this, but I believe this. There's really nothing good that happens after 10 p.m. anyway. What are you possibly doing after 10 p.m.? Yeah. Now they have the. You couldn't meet a girl or a guy online. You don't even need to, I go to a bar any guy. Right. Well put. So let's get into these principles for resilience. You have ten of them, right? And the first one is you can't until you can. I mean, they're all right. I read this book and I'm like, yeah, I mean, I live this and I understand all of these things. You know, clearly many people don't and need it, so it's a service that you're doing this. But they're all pretty self evident. Yeah, I mean, listen, we talked about it before. My kids say it. I'm sure your kid said it when they were growing up. I can't do that. And I just say, you can't yet, right? We all can't do something yet. Isn't it amazing? I'm sure you've studied this where there's a world record broken and running or cycling or whatever. And then all of a sudden, there's 13 more people around the world that break the same record that couldn't be broken for 15 years. So it's really our minds that limit us and the sooner we could teach children they can't yet, the better children we're going to have. So we shouldn't be limiting ourselves on what's possible. We should not put limits on anything as possible. My oldest son will say, well, does that mean I could fly dad? Well, I mean at the Wright brothers figured it out. You know, get on that problem. Maybe. You know? Just 'cause no one's done it yet. Exactly. Who knows? The idea of living your values is one of them as well and you touch on that a minute ago. I think it's an important exercise to be journaling or connecting with what your values are on a regular basis, because our values are shifting, depending upon what's happening. But I think a lot of people just, we're not in a culture that is really encouraging us to think about that. So I think there's a lot of people who are like, I don't know what my values are. I want to provide for my family and I don't know watch football on the weekend. It doesn't go much further than that. So how does one who's never really wrestled with this even began to unpack what that might mean for them? You know, I just had somebody that read the book. I didn't know he had bought the book for his family as young children. He said, I really love this idea of value as my family and I sat down and we made a list and we were shocked at our oldest son who was like 9 and what his values were and so it's really as simple and as hard as sitting down with a piece of paper, giving it out to your wife or your husband and the kids and just taking a stab at it. What are the things that are important to you? What are the things that you value? Do you and the family want to be incredibly healthy? Do you want to be known as the hardest working family on the block? What are the things that are going to move the needle? If this was a thousand years ago and you had a family crest, what would the saying be on that crest, you know? And so, for us, for me, one of the big things is like, I don't care win or lose, guys. But we got to be known as the hardest work and family on the planet. Like I can't have this business out there where I'm telling people, we don't quit. But what if your kids have a completely different set of values? And they're like, that's good for you, but that ain't the life I'm living. Well, I don't care who you are. You should be a hard worker, right? I remember my son was skiing. We were in the ski program at killington, 'cause we grew up on a farm in Vermont. And I go in, it's nice. The parents get to go in and have lunch with their children. So they go ski all morning with the skin instructors, come in, have lunch, and then they go out again for the second half of the day. And the lady says to me, oh, your son. He's already in. I said, but it's only 1130. I thought it was oh well, he was cold. He came in early, and I was so furious, right? But I had a temper myself. It's tough to be your kid, man. All right. I have compassion for your kids. And I go. If they want to come and live with me for a while, I'm going to expand on that for a second. So I'm like, Jack, and he's like, he knows, right? He's probably 6 years old at the time. I go to I was really cold. I said, you know what? This team might not be the right team for you. You're on my ski team now. Let's go. Let's go outside. Let's put our skis on. We've got a half hour before lunch. Come on. And he puts his skis on, and I proceed to penguin walk up the mountain with him. And we're walking up, what are we doing? I said, oh, well, my ski team, we don't take chairlifts. You'll never be cold again..

"Greatest podcast ever. And we're both about to go and the weather gets bad. I probably should go for it, no matter how I'm feeling, because I got a different value system. You probably should turn around and go down. You want to be the best right? So you got to have enough resilience. You got to be able to really reflect and dive into what's going on in your head and say, am I quitting? Because it's just hard. Or am I quitting because it aligns or pivoting? Because it aligns with my value system. So it's being open minded and true to yourself enough to be able to answer that question correctly. Yeah, I think that's a really important point to make because in the context of fitness, you have fitness fanatics who set a goal and they become very narrowly focused on that. But maybe they have kids or their value set is broader than just performance in that one specific realm, but they kind of push all their chips into that for a short period of time. And resilience in that context means being flexible or less rigid when hey listen, you know, you got to go to the recital today. You're not going to be able to do that workout that's in your training program and not like losing your mind over that. I see a lot of that. So we think of resilience as I was like, you got to be tough and you got to be able to go out when it's pouring rain and freezing. But it works the other way, same time because most people are not professional athletes. No, you use the better word than I did, which would be less rigid. And I see it a lot in business, right? I want to hire a lot of people at the company that really believe in the brand. But there are some that really believe in the brand that don't really want to work. And that's a tough one to understand because if they're crawling on the barbed wire and they're running every day and they clearly want to work, but that's fun in some ways. You know what I mean? The hard work is going to recycle maybe. Yeah. Or sitting down and doing the emails. And so you do have to be non rigid enough to be able to do it all. Yeah, right? Coming back for more, but first, we're brought to you today by the overlords.

"Certainly hasn't seen one carrying a kettlebell around the neighborhood, right? They might as well have been wild animals, so I started messing around with this idea. We need a book that breaks some eggs and is a little bowl and it's gonna piss people off, but is a little more hardcore parenting and it's not, you know, use all the terms like we're not snow blowing, all right? We're not helicopter parenting. We're like, we're flame thrower. I'm putting obstacles in their way. Yeah, and you've really done that. And it's impossible to read the book without reflecting I have four kids too. And thinking, yeah, I didn't do that so well. I think on some level we parent either to honor the traditions of our parents and it seems like you've taken the best of how you were parented and tried to imbue your parenting with that. Or we try to parent in opposition to the way we were parented because we were traumatized or we feel like we were led down some dark alleys or whatever. And I just know in my own case, my parents were great and they provided for me and they weren't overly rough, but there was high expectations set. And I strive very hard to meet those expectations, but always felt like I couldn't quite get there. And I think consciously or unconsciously when I had kids, I thought, I don't want to do that to them. You know? And so I've probably been on the spectrum of things softer than my parents were for better or worse. And my kids aren't athletes. They're all artists. And luckily, they've all pretty much found things that excite them. And so we challenge them in that regard and push them and hold them accountable. But they're all pursuing things that they enjoy, but I'm not the kettlebell guy or the guy who's getting them up at 5 in the morning and making them take cold showers and stuff like that. And I've seen what you just described. I remember the neighborhood I grew up in was all organized crime. And the next generation I always scratched my head as a kid and said, why is the next generation softer when their dad does that for a living? And it was because the parents had tough upbringings and they wanted to make it easier for the kid. That's the dilemma of like every successful person who pulled themselves up and built a big life for themselves. And then they have kids. And suddenly they're living in a huge house. Like Kevin Hart talks about this all the time. My kids are, you know, I can't get them to do anything. They're hopeless, you know. Yeah. And so I got a little sense of that. And I always reflect back on the movie rocky. I don't know if it was rocky three, where he had the kids and he had the money and all of a sudden he became complacent and so that really stuck in my brain, especially with the backdrop in the neighborhood, kids being softer, a lot softer than the hardcore parents. And I said, and my wife went along with it. Let's try to make the kids tougher because life's tough. Like when my kids complain to me, they like all kids do. The other day, whatever Charlie was saying something about like, oh, my arm hurts, so whatever. Your arm hurts. I gotta make payroll this week. You know what I mean? Like, suck it up. And my wife will say, like, oh, you're too hard. Too hard on them. I just lost my best employee. You know what I mean? So I don't know. I feel like we're raising adults and wouldn't we want them to practice with us on how hard that's going to be rather than when we're not around. You know? And if I fail anywhere, as I listen to you, I push the workout stuff too much. They should be working on a hardware store a couple days a week. They should be doing some learning some other things, doing some artwork, like you said. I'm constantly drilling the exercise and to the point where I'm afraid someday they'll be like, oh, thank God, he's gone. We don't have to exercise every take a break. Exactly. But wait, how old are they now? They're like, I've seen them down. Yes, 16, 14, 12, 8. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. So my older two are a little bit older, but then we have 18 and 14. So in the zone. In the zone. Yeah. And they're seeing the benefits of the hard work. You know, they go out and do a physical fitness test at school and they perform really well. And hopefully they make that connection. Okay, that's because dad was driving us nuts. And you got to have a partner that goes along with it. If my wife didn't go along, it would be really a disaster. Right. But she didn't think you wrote in this book with such a good idea. She did not want me to write the book. We actually fought over it because you know there's a history in America of folks writing parenting books and being completely wrong. Like, what the hell do we know? We're all just trying to figure it out. And then we have, I'm friendly with a psychologist. Who was willing to put her name on the cover as well, and that gave me enough credibility that my wife said, all right, you know, if there's a psychologist involved, then maybe you go fishing for the one. Exactly. Who would approve of your methods? Yeah. Well, that's what I did. Dark arts. We called 983 psychologists. And then finally, doctor L answer the phone was like, all right, well, I need some extra money. I'll do it. There you go. Well, we have a bit of an annual tradition here on the show where we try to kick people off into the new year with their heads straight. We've had a bunch of navy seals, et cetera that serve that purpose. And I just thought, like, you're sort of the perfect person to do this. This year, you know, this moment when we find ourselves plotting our goals and our ambitions for what's to come, pledging that this year is going to be different that you're not going to.

"He was a big lawyer chairman of the law firm, attempted to get his daughter into a school, got caught and lost his license and got kicked out of his law firm and basically hit the depths of despair, being from the neighborhood I'm from, where I know lots of people that went to jail and got out and survived. I befriended him and I said, I could help you out. I'll introduce you to some guys. I'll let you know what you're in for. And he came out and he was very appreciative that when a lot of people wanted a distance themselves from him, I was actually saying no way. I'm your friend. Don't worry, whatever you need. It wasn't like he killed somebody. He made a mistake. Like many parents, mate. You could easily see, by the way, it's a slippery slope. Like, I want to help my kid out. I want to get him in a good college and you know it. Right? Making up stories about him or her being on the sailing team and all kinds of stuff. Yeah, test scores. So he comes the whole thing was unbelievable. Unbelievable. And let's get into that, but he comes out and he got involved with this bike company called Carol. And I said, look, Gordon, I'm not into, like, I'm the last guy to send a bike to that's supposed to get you in shape with ten minutes a day. If you told me it's a bike that you carry, it would make sense. You don't even ride it. You carried up a mountain. And they sent it to me and I wrote it and I for anybody listening. I don't want to sound like a commercial. Because it's just a bike. But it's pretty cool. And it's a good way for me to warm up before I do my big workout. And if they were guiding you and I and how to advertise for it, I would not be the guy to say that because their pitch is you getting a great workout in ten minutes. My pitch on it would be that ten minutes is my warmup and then I go do other stuff. Right. But they've been bugging me that we want to get to rich role or whatever. And I was like, I know him, but I'm busy, and I just kept putting it off and then I was like, oh, I'm going to see ritual. Why don't you send them a bike? And when I get there, I'll show it to him. But then I forgot about it. I did not expect to see it. And then you walked in and it was here. I was like, please explain why there's a bike here. Yeah, because there wasn't a lot of background or explanation, right? But I appreciate it. It's cool. I haven't given it a spin yet, but give it a spin, see if you like it. And if you don't, carry it around the neighborhood. Yeah. Well, the whole subject of parents getting caught up in the greater welfare of their children and then sliding down a slippery slope of making some ethically dubious decisions that get them in trouble is sort of apropos to the themes of the book, the ten rules for resilience, which is really all about I mean, you've characterized it as a parenting book and I want to hear the back story behind that. But it's sort of a Trojan horse in terms of being a parenting book because as you know, you can't teach your children any of the principles that you articulate in the book if you're not living them yourself. So each chapter, you have these ten principles and each chapter is really about how to cultivate this in your own way, followed by sections around. Okay, here's how you now transition that into how you parent or imbue your family with these ideas. Yeah, and the thinking is kids watch you. You know, forget about listening. They're watching and you're modeling whether you know it or not. And so you have to live the life you expect them to live. My father worked really hard. My mother worked hard around health and wellness and you're just picking it up through osmosis, right? And so don't expect, if you're disappointed in your child and they're not honest or whatever the things are well, it's a reflection on mirror, you're looking to marriage, a reflection on you. The book came about because when we had children, my wife and I, we have four kids, we started skiing. In Vermont, that was our first sport. And I remember my two little boys, skin with me, and we sat down for lunch and I sought out the healthiest meal I could in a ski resort. And we sat down and we're gonna get right back out there. And the guy next to us put like two cookies on my tray and said, hey, give it to the kids. And I was like, can I curse here? Yeah. Why the fuck? Are you ready to cook? You know how hard it is for me to keep cookies always? And you just did that and then it happened in a bank where I was trying to teach them how to deposit $10 and how deposits work and how banks work that teller was giving them lollipops. And then in challenging them to run around the neighborhood or one day we were carrying kettlebells for a mile. People would stop. And I remember this one instance where a lady stopped, she screeched her car and she said to the kids, not to me, directed right at the kids. Are you okay? I saw you carrying these cattle, you know, these heavy wigs for the last, is he harming you? What are you talking about? She's gonna call child services. I mean, that's what it came to. And then I thought, hang on a second. It's really not her fault. She hasn't seen a child on a sidewalk, and like a decade. She certainly hasn't seen one carrying a kettlebell around the neighborhood, right? They might as well have been wild animals, so I started messing around with this idea..

"The feud between running talk rate runs back to 2005 when Rana was outset from the shifts in our party, but his recent remarks have riled up the old dispute again as he slammed the Parkway regarding his Independence Day speech. While speaking to the media and writer on 24 August, he said that, and I quote, it is shameful that the chief minister does not know the ER of India's independence. He leaned back to inquire about the count of years of independence during his speech. Had I been there, I would have given him a tight slap. The comments did not sit well with chefs in a workers and sparked outrage in the streets, posters of Rani were plastered in Mumbai and other metro cities, calling him a quote unquote combat or reportedly snide reference the poultry shop he ran in chamber decades ago, a big group of shifts, and also reach run his residence in Mumbai, where the class with BJP supporters leading to stone pelting from both sides, and on 24th August Rani was arrested at some wish for in that magritte by nausea city police team, where the FI was filed against him in a viral video running can be seen having a meal when the police arrested him. According to an Indian express report, at least three FIR's have been registered against Ronnie, for his remarks with charges under section one 53, which is want to only giving provocation with the intent to cause riot section one 59 section 5 zero four, which is intentional insult to provoke breach of peace, section Pfizer fight public mischief and section Pfizer 6 criminal intimation of the Indian penal code. After reportedly spending 9 hours in jail, he was granted bail by the mahat code. The code directed Ronnie to not tamper with the probe, cooperate with the investigations and also appear before the alibar police on 38th August and 13 September. Rani has since contested the three FIR's and even tried to move the Bombay high court for an urgent hearing, which the code declined. But given that the shifts in a may know that the charges against Ronnie won't stand in court, what optics did this arrest serve. According to senior journalist sujata a London, the action taken against Rani by the shifts in the result of a power play between the two sides. What was the crime? He said that he's going to slap the Maharashtra chief minister. Now, the thing is the mother so chief minister constitutional authority. And you can probably not get away with slapping a slapping achievement. So constitutional authority. But if you remember, there was there was a man in Delhi who had once slapped Sharapova when he was a union minister. Not much action was taken against him. So this whole thing between naraine Ronnie and uda thackeray goes back even to times, you know, I mean, Narendra has not got along with the for a very long time. He had to say now because of the tax rate. And who doesn't know very well that Nara and he was being inducted into the cabinet only to trouble the ship sana into trouble him. So it is entirely a question of power play and optics. You know, the chief minister of Maharashtra has made it very clear even to the union ministers and particularly to Nara and Ronnie that you know you are you get out of line in my state and you could be arrested. They knew that there are no sections, you know, which they could slap on Rani that would sustain. But Ron has been given conditional Bill. There are about four or 5 conditions. That itself is humiliating for running. You know, the fact that, you know, two Mondays, he has to report to, that I got police station, et cetera. Et cetera, all those things are a bit humiliating. This man who thinks he's a big bunga and you know, I mean, he can take on, you know? I mean, the ship say no, he can take on a doctor. The fact that he has he's brought to heel by od who's now the chief minister of Maharashtra, it is humiliation. So it is just a question of power play and it is one of my. So the cre is one upon one or two up after the bill to open Ronnie. Now we have to wait and see how it plays out in the future. But political commentators also point out the curious timing of this arrest. In the run up to the municipal corporation elections, Ronnie has been making the rounds of key consequences in Maharashtra like Mumbai polgar ratana, and sent up the now the BJP has been trying to make inroads into the Maharashtra konkan belt, which has served as the bastion for the shifts in a for decades. The BGP party state unit has also been reportedly during the conquering belt for months trying to cement the party's base there. The region was also visited by a union home minister Amit Shah in January this year. But the party has been struggling to gain any foothold in the region, having control of only three out of the 21 assembly seats, and their rival ships are now concluding ten. This shift sina and January also dealt the BGP local unit and sent to a heavy bloke by inducting 7 counselors from the software party. And this is where Ronnie comes in, who is a maratha phase and was responsible for expanding the shifts in our support in the concurrent build. Renaissance related is also an MLA from the studio and then explains the BGP strategy in Maharashtra in how significant will run is ruled will be to Garner the crucial votes in the konkan region when Ronnie was in the shifts in a Balkan propensity. You know, I mean, BioTech would never move anywhere except when he wanted to go and address a meeting or something like that. So he had handed over various regions to various people had been handed to run it, and it was completely in charge of the content. And nasik was handed to chug and budget bill. Navi Mumbai will hand it to 102 Ganesh snack. But you look at what happened afterwards in the shift in people voted only for bile tuck. It didn't matter the issues in matter. You know, I mean, the situation didn't matter. They voted for Baltic. The local leaders did not matter. Now, all the local leaders thought that they were the buns in that in that area. So when Nara and Ronnie quit tissue Sinai joined the Congress, the Congress also took him on because they thought that he would be able to bring home to them. And in Mumbai, he would be able to bring, you know, the area the millworkers area, which was the shift in our strong wood. They thought that was the end of first municipal elections that came narayan rame was given about 40 seats for tea out of the 200 watt seats that were there in the municipal corporation. He was able to win only two seats. He was able to win only two or three seats maximum in that area in the shifts in a stronghold. And in the after an hour and running quit and join the Congress. Now, even the NCP was after the conquering and even the Congress was after the NCP and Congress were having a Tesla over Narendra that point of time, shared power wanted to come to the NCP for the same reason and Congress was wing him for the same reason. But what happened after the first assembly assembly elections, the thing is a shoe sign up, put up a relative, non entity, and that non entity won the election. Ron could not win any seats over there. Now another first looks about election. His son managed to win the win the looks of our seat. He managed to win an assembly seat. His second son managed to win another SMBC. But the next election, you know, both I mean, one of his sons lost, he lost only once and was able to retain retain his SMBC. Then the Congress became a seat from bandra where Nara and Ronnie has a house, which is supposed to be his another stronghold office for a by election, the Congress gave him a ticket from there. He lost to symptom. And which candidate the widow of the man who had who had won the election earlier. So if the BJP king said the Nara and Ronnie is going to win them seats in the conqueror in Bombay, they have another thing coming. You know, the reason why then narayan runne had to quit the Congress was because the Congress found no use anymore from nada and ranu. The Congress always had to use and discard policy now. I mean, you know, if you notice the Congress never gives any positions to anybody unless that person is an original congressman. Sharapova is only a Christian, but you can see the children power was also an original congressman who broke the Congress and then went and formed his own party and joined various other parties and then came back. But, you know, I mean, you know, they are just using to you know people who come from other political parties. If they are useful if they are able to bring seeds if.

Apparent Catalytic Converter Thief Crushed To Death By Collapsing Car In Anaheim, SE Of Los Angeles
"About this man in California, you know we talked earlier. Guess it was last week about the catalytic converters. Being stolen from cars has been like, you know, 1000% increase in number of thefts here locally. Well, apparently, it's a problem all across the country. Yeah. Man is suspected of trying to steal a vehicle's catalytic converter in Anaheim, California, died after the car fell on him. Officers responded to a report of a deceased man there in a neighborhood, according to police. Man was apparently in the process of stealing the catalytic converter When the jack failed, crushing the would be thief to death. Right there on the spot. The car was was the was the car was the property of a local business owner in that area and came out and saw this horrible, thick sena killed by Prius. Yeah, it Zez Horrible isn't a Prius. Yeah, his Prius and apparently, Prius has been a very popular hit. That has been the number One cars that these thieves like to target. Yeah, and we were speculating, you know, trying to forget what How do you do? How did they do it so quickly? And I guess this is I don't know if this is the exclusive way of doing and having a jack it up and get under there, or some people are able to do it without doing that. But that was the mode he chose and the Jack failed and fell on him. Converters were targeted because they contain some precious metals, which can be scrapped and then sold to make a quick buck. On day estimate that the thieves are getting about $200 from each catalytic converter. Wow, and they're in the story. There's some photos of, I guess, um Some of the recovered catalytic converters on and it's amazing these things they're just piled up. This is this is rampant. This is really, really, really, really, really way to protect yourself. So that yours is installing. Can you go to the garage and have them welded on? Or is this something that they actually cut off? There's really not a way to protect your vehicle. Well, looking at these photos, it looks like they're literally cut off. So I don't know what the hell you would do. The only way I could think you could really prevent this from happening is, you know, Be sure to park in an area where it's not gonna be too isolated and maybe an area where it would be hard for them to pull this off in your garage and home. I think if somebody was doing this in your neighborhood Maybe somebody is has gone to work in that third cars in the driveway, walked outside and you saw somebody working on your neighbor's car. I don't think you know any different. Oh, they must be having an issue. Yes, Somebody's working on their

China says manufacturing 'greatness' still 30 years away
"Let's talk about china. I there because of course they in the middle of their annual meeting right now But there are stories saying that manufacturing greatness is still thirty years away. Yeah this is extraordinary. So a third of the world's goods on manufactured in china it's been the great manufacturing success story. It's been astonishing how quickly it's happened. Particularly since china's entry into the world trade organization which has about fifteen years ago. If i remember correctly but what is extraordinary as you said it The people's congress this vast vast meeting where all the sena powerful players in the communist party get together. How i wanted the communist party Get together and plan the future. And and and one of the top government advises made this warning. And i think this is on the back of the rift with trump the trade wars and particularly very important chinese companies being blocked from accessing. Us technology such as walkway buying critical components. And what he's pointing out is yes. We may be really good at making clothes or making low tech. But we and we all getting better at making high-tech cars and phones but what we're not is the make very good at making the really really high tech products that go into those phones. So semiconductors so artificial intelligence and what he's saying is core technologies are in the hands of others and this is for some time. We've known that then there may well be sort of two competing global technology systems. And this really sounds like this is going to develop even further. The plan from the chinese government from beijing is that they want to control their own access technology because they do not want to be dependent on america and political interference such as we saw from trump in the last five

Hundreds of kidnapped schoolboys have been freed in Nigeria, officials say
"Say hundreds of schoolboys kidnapped last week by militants claiming to be from the Islamist group Boka, Haram. Have been released. Officials in cats in the states a 344 boys have been freed, although they are in good health and will soon be released to their families or the reports are suggesting some remain in the hands of their captors. Nigeria's presidential spokesperson garb Isha, who told the BBC exactly what had happened. Well, you know, As we have said they were little commanders have said they they had to feed the entire place where they were held All of the parameters and showing exactly fishing had been identified by the military. The day after the abductions, and all of these things took that much time because nobody wanted to bring the corpses back home. There was no shooting. They totally and circled the location. And I'm sure that immediate impossible for anyone to smuggle anyone out. So that was the presidential spokesman Garba Shoes. So, Woz book around behind this, Or was it bandits out for money? Who'd been suggested by some officials? Well for more I spoke to earlier to our head of our BBC houses, service and you tangle. I can confirm to you that the cuts in a state government told us that 344 boys have are now in the custody off. Some forested governments on Fara is the neighboring country estate on off course, the information with God it is that the boys were handed over to Nigerian security personnel around a forest in Saffy local government in Zamfara state. And they were droving in trucks toe good, So the capital of Zamfara state, So it is this morning that they are going to find their way to cut Sena where they're expected to be reunited with their families. But what is not clear is that you know, the yesterday in the afternoon, Boco Haram released a video Where one of the boys were saying that the 500 plus boys in the forest, but what we know now is there are 344 boys that have been handed over to Nigerian government. And as you say with that question of whether they're still more boys being held captive. There's also another question that many I mean questions abound. But one of them also is how the boys were released whether any money exchanged hands, especially because government muscly had declared categorically that they wouldn't pay a ransom either to book our Army said they wouldn't negotiate with him or hand over money, too. The gunman who he said they were negotiating with. Well, the information with get it through five is that the Nigerian government did not pay any ransom. It was true negotiations with the group. So what we know so far is that these boys were abducted by a criminal gang off some bandits in cats in a state And they took them over to some for a state. But you know there are links between these criminal gangs and Boko Haram. This is now clear, but I think there was a group in the forefront of the negotiation, which is very popular in Nigeria. Miyata Laugh Lanie Association, So there are links between these groups and this, you know social cultural groups in northern Nigeria, and that is how the went on a negotiated what they claim there. Was there were no ransom paid, and I leave you in that video. I mean, I know you as the editor of the Household Service had poured over that video quite carefully, And they made the syriza of demand through that young man, one of them being about these Fulani herdsman or the Fulani gunman. Bond. There's been a lot of debate a lot of questions a lot of protests about the activities of these gunmen in northwest Nigeria. Surely negotiating with them is now only going to fuel this kind of debate in Nigeria and the questions about insecurity in the area, even though people are elated that the boys have been released. Yes. So The problem now is what other demands off these groups on one of the major demand is that the vigilante group that is the local security that is there in his own for A and Carson estate should be disbanded because these bandits are claiming that the local security personnel that's the vigilantes. Uh, killing their men. So what we don't know is if government will agree to that demon on disband this local vigilante. But what is clear is that there is high insecurity and the Nigerian security personnel talking about the Nigerian Army Air Force on Nigerian police on not capable and have shown that they don't have Enough one power to secure the area.

Socialists Make A Strong Comeback In Bolivia
"Socialist appear to have made a strong comeback yesterday in Bolivia's presidential election. All of the votes have yet to be counted. But the handpicked candidate of ousted President Evo Morales seems to have taken a big lead in the first round. Those are supporters of socialist Louise Arcee, celebrating in downtown La Paz. NPR's Philip Reeves has been following this from his base in Rio de Janeiro and joins me now. Hi, Phil. Hi. Remind us what set the stage for this election. For the past year, Bolivia has been ruled by an interim president from the political right. Yeah, This goes back to late last year, when Morales was pushed out and went into exile. His opponent said he tried to rig an election. They cited an audit of that election by the Organization of American States that showed numerous irregularities. Others dispute those allegations and say Morales was the victim of a coup on elected interim government took over headed by right winger call Ginny Anya's. It's had a rough ride and yes crackdown on the opposition. Several dozen of Morales is indigenous supporters were killed by security forces during protests which polarized country of more Then the pandemic arrived in the electoral authorities postpone the election twice and that triggered mass protests and Nation and the nation wide blockade, and people were worried that yesterday's election would bring more unrest. But that didn't happen happily. So with all of this, how certain are we that the socialist Louise Arcee is actually one? Yeah, I mean, it doesn't appear that he's run out, won the first round outright, his main rival, Carlos Messer, today, conceded Saying that people have to recognize there's being a winner. The interim president Ginny Anya's tweeted, congratulations to us in his running mate Very early on Mexico in Argentina, You know, two big regional players politically on the left, have publicly congratulated him. And so, by the way is the U. S. Polls before the election did show us He was well ahead in the lead, you know as well in the lead, but his chances of winning out right in the first round weren't Sena's full. That great unofficial vote count indicate he's actually done that. But this hasn't been officially confirmed by the electoral authorities. They say the official count could take several days to complete. Can you say Maura about thie us in support of our say the U. S. Did concur with the allegations of border voter fraud committed by more Alice? Yeah, when they ran, it was pushed out. The Trump administration was frankly delighted, is a huge figure on the Latin American left. He was Bolivia's first indigenous president. He ruled for nearly 14 years. He's credited with growing the economy a lot not least through nationalization and lifting millions out of poverty with the help of a C who was his economy minister. S O. The prospect of a socialist comeback in Bolivia isn't likely to go down well in in Washington, the right wing tends to bracket morale is with Venezuelan Cuba and you know they saw his fall is a defeat for international socialism. But the State Department certainly saw the writing on the wall and has recently been saying it will work with whoever is legitimately elected. That's NPR's Philip Greaves. Thank you so

The rise of Poland's far right has important lessons for Americans
"Election of Donald J. Trump. We in the United States have become accustomed to a degree of fabulous. Um I've done more for black Americans than anybody. With the possible exception of Abraham Lincoln, the president, self aggrandizement provides the framework for his alternate reality. We have one of the lowest mortality rate way had 900 Deaths in a single day. You have the numbers place because I heard we had the best mortality number one low mortality, right? We are being given something I can't recall in my lifetime, a choice of realities. One that is mostly regarded as evidence based and one that you might call faith based that faith being in Mr Trump In either case, you have a sizable cohort to back you up. Truth has been displaced in many quarters by rage and fear. Over the past four months, we've had many opportunities to observe the impact of paranoia. When deployed by a fantasist in the White House in Arizona Man died after taking Clara Quien, his wife said that they heard about it from Trump's briefings. Are you gonna allow the government to tell you you have to wear a mask? Some believe these mask orders go against their freedoms will protect. All right, I will know asked me and I will not pay for antibiotics. Conspiracies of Sena numbers swell on Facebook and doctors warn, if left unchecked, they could undermine an effective vaccine. The death toll from the Corona virus pandemic has surpassed 150,000 in the United States. That's the highest number of fatalities in any nation by far. And accounts for nearly 1/4 of the recorded global. Told immediately after the 2016 election, I spoke with New York ER writer Masha Gessen, who, after having lived long under Vladimir Putin had some advice for anxious Americans trying to navigate the so called new normal. She explained that for the would be authoritarian, the lying is the point that the ability to create a reality flagrantly staring down conspicuous fact. Is a crucial component of building and sustaining power. And last fall boxes, David Roberts noted bluntly, where such a strategy left unchecked, could lead this sort of cultish, increasingly authoritarian movement takes over the country. In Russia and Turkey and Poland. Right's a disturbingly longer and longer list. We see countries that we thought were democracies devolve into this. In the U. S. So much has happened in the last few years that we thought would never happen. I think we should really loosen up our imaginations as to what can happen when a movement that is convinced that everything it knows and loves is in danger of falling apart movements that's thinking like that unconnected anymore to fax or reality. And got its hands on the power of the federal government is the basic recipe for democracy is falling apart. And so last fall on, the media producer Leia Feder reported on one of those places Poland, a young democracy teetering on unstable ground and where it's far right Nationalist government is intent on rewriting the nation's painful history. For almost a decade, Poland has been in the grip of a conspiracy theory what really happened when a plane crashed in a forest in western Russia, killing Poland's president and dozens of other government officials. The plane had been on route to commemorate another Polish tragedy, a massacre that had occurred in the very same location in 1940. 1973 documentary explored the mystery While the German army is advancing from the West, the Soviets crossed Poland's eastern front court in a method of Polish army collapsed, Um, surrendered. The victors, divided the country down the middle and imprisoned every soldier they captured. Russia took a 215,000 Poland officer Corps were never seen alive again. Many. What die near Smolensk, in a forest called catching after decades of opacity and suspicion on investigation in the early nineties, confirmed finally, that it was not Hitler. But Stalin, who had ordered the massacre. And so when, on April 10th 2010 a delegation of 96 Polish politicians and officials traveled from Warsaw to Smolensk. It was in service of remembrance and reconciliation. But what happened instead compounded the national pain. Poland's prime minister burst into tears when he heard the news today that his country's president was killed in a plane crash pilot tried to land in a thick fog at least twice missing the runway. And ignoring the control tower's direction to divert to another city. Not just losing the president of that country. The first lady, the ahead of the army chief of staff, the National Security Office head deputy Parliament speaker, the deputy foreign minister. It was a devastating national tragedy. What's more, the symbolic layering was undeniable. Ah, longstanding tragedy finally solved and a new one appears in its place. And yet, in the immediate moments and days after the crash, there was a kind of common shock. An Applebaum is a journalist and academic beast in Warsaw At the time of the 2010 crash, her husband was minister of foreign affairs in the Polish government, and there was pretty straightforward reporting. About what had happened. What was immediately clear There were people on the ground who saw the crash. So there was a kind of concensus initially about what had happened that it was a terrible Accident and that you know many people of value to the nation had died. But the story started to shift is the investigation into the crash proceeded. Investigators say pilot error was mostly to blame. It became clear that one of the causes of the crash was the fact that the pilots were under pressure to land. The president's delegation had arrived late for the plane. They were running behind schedule as they got closer to smell lens, which was even really an airport. It was a kind of airstrip in the forest. They began to be worried about the fog and the pilots weren't sure they could make the narrow landing. But according to black box recordings, Polish President Lech Kaczynski, head of the opposition party directed the pilots to do it was meant to be the launch of his reelection campaign. So there were cameras there which he knew, and he was very anxious to go under pressure, the pilots tried to make the landing. Instead, they hit a tree, killing all 96 people on board. The president's twin brother, the head of the nationalist right political party in Poland, same parties, the president He didn't like this story. It made the president look bad, more to the point. This is a terrible crash very near to a place where a Nurlita generation of poles were murdered by the Soviet state. Because of that eeriness. People immediately began to speculate that there was actually a different, deeper story that perhaps the Russians caused the crash. Perhaps there was a bomb on the plane. And conspiracy theories began to proliferate online. The president's brother, Nijinsky began openly alluding to them. Kaczynskis Law and Justice Party made unraveling the Smolensk conspiracy. It's key campaign promise once you had bought into their idea that there is a secret conspiracy, possibly involving the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk. Possibly involving the Russians, and that lots of people high up in the state were implicated in some great big secret plot to kill the president. If you believe that Then you can believe a lot of other things. The point was to get people to believe in a kind of alternative reality to doubt institutions to doubt that the government was telling them the truth, and that was absolutely an attempt to help win an election, But it did more than carve out a new electorate. It created new divides in Polish society. Where one's Polish politics were split between Communists and anti communists around economic policy. Now it was over a vision of history. It was how you see Poland's place in the world. And whether you think secret dark forces air trying to undermine your country and whether you know you need to elect a government of Patriots in order to make sure that doesn't happen. Where you fell on that dividing line affected how you would vote and how you would understand politics for the next several years, And so when line justice one in 2015 it spawned a new kind of power a power based on the willingness to embrace the myth. They fired large numbers of Polish civil servants. Polish members of the foreign service. All kinds of people who work for the government also leaders and board members of state companies and they replaced all of them with people whom they were sure we're loyal. And one element of the loyalty test was belief in this Molinski myth. Smolinski conspiracy implied that there were dark, mysterious forces continuing to try to manipulate and undermine the Polish nation. It also drawn the larger story of a Poland continually attacked by outsiders and the valiant Polish resistance to threats past and present line Justice Road that narrative electoral victory. And then wrote its electoral victory to further consolidation of that narrative in service of Polish nationalism.

So there was a kind of concensus initially about what had happened that it was a terrible Accident and that you know many people of value to the nation had died. But the story started to shift is the investigation into the crash proceeded. Investigators say pilot error was mostly to blame. It became clear that one of the causes of the crash was the fact that the pilots were under pressure to land. The president's delegation had arrived late for the plane. They were running behind schedule as they got closer to smell lens, which was even really an airport. It was a kind of airstrip in the forest. They began to be worried about the fog and the pilots weren't sure they could make the narrow landing. But according to black box recordings, Polish President Lech Kaczynski, head of the opposition party directed the pilots to do it was meant to be the launch of his reelection campaign.
