"Shapiro okay so the the question is how seriously we should balance these considerations and politicians never want to tell you about trade off this is just the role of politicians politicians will never tell you about a draft every policy is one hundred percent good and zero percent bad and then in reality of course the trade off no matter a great deal the fact is that for all the people are ripping on lockdown protesters those protesters are pointing out that there are serious considerations to be had here that like it or not there is no treatment for this thing on the horizon there's a new study out today from China it has some serious problems with the study suggesting that this this drug from Gilead sciences that people are very optimistic about last week may not in fact the all that effective in fighting this thing that looks like hydroxy Clark with an early an early look at it may look more optimistic than it actually was this early studies suggest that run disappear it is not nearly as effective as people were hoping that would be in the stock market has been taken because of it well there's no there there and there are no therapeutics that are that are directly on the horizon that tamped down the death rate from the same and that means that we are going to have to accept it radically elevated notion of risk in our society as compared to before and that means they're gonna have to be responsible about how we go back to the market and we do have to take into consideration that we put tens of millions of people out of work we take their livelihood away from them when you shut down businesses and their families have been in for decades and when you do that by both government fiat and market changes that you need the markets respond as fast as possible not only because you need a market rebound but because you need to know what the new normal looks like some people can shift to the industries that actually are growing right you will see growth in online industries you will see growth and delivery services you will see growth in any area of manufacturing that can then be conveyed to people at their homes there is a dramatic shrinkage in terms of retail yes Informatik trinket in terms of travel because your medic trinkets in terms of in terms of entertainment outside the home right theaters it didn't but we're not going to know that some people actually get back out to work the market provides you the feedback loop that allows the actual economy to Josh and create new jobs in the areas where people still want to consume but that's what we need to happen right now and that's why it's so ridiculous to watch people like Andrew Cuomo basically suggest that there is no countervailing concerns that those who are concerned about the economy are fools and the only concern here is death that's just a lie it's not true he knows it's not true if you thought that way if you thought differently he wouldn't be talking about opening anything up in New York state but he is talking about opening things up he's lying how can the queue or be.

"Thanks so much for stopping by Ben Shapiro show Sunday special so I have a lot I wanna get to with you. Discuss your father's legacy and where you stand on. President trump will talk politics but obviously we have to start with situation with regard to corona virus. First of all has your family dealing with with all of this. I hope that you're doing okay. We're all doing fine. We're just doing the work. God has called us to slow down. We just going forward. Well I definitely appreciate working. We're GONNA get to that in just a second. I want to ask you that. There are a lot of religious people in the United States. Who Right now are deeply troubled by all of the calls by state and local governments to shutdown churches and there are people who work with me here daily wire who have been upset that the government has deemed churches non essential for purposes of shutting them down and shutting down mass gatherings right now know as as a religious person. What what's your perspective on on the government telling people to stay home from church. What do you think Christians ought to do? I mean we're approaching Easter season. First of all I think we need to pay those that authority That's what the Bible teaches. And so I think it's very important that we do that The churches are not. Shut down I think more people are online services. Then they did when you were meeting in person. there's something about This virus that has put fear and anxiety people's hearts to so I think just poor people are online and they're they're they're participate in that way so the church needs to continue to be the church about. I just would encourage pastors across the country to obey those. That are not authority. And I think that's what the congregations would expect us to do as an Orthodox Jew myself. I've been encouraging people to to stay home from synagogue which has been told order in some sectors and it seems to me that actually is. It's a fairly large scale. Desecration of God's name when there's video and pictures of people going on mass to to religious institutions in violation of of government edict that are specifically designed to prevent massive loss of life. And we do have to be careful Been because this is a very infectious and it's a deadly virus Especially those that have underlying health issues This could be a death sentence and so we just have to be extremely careful But I don't think they should. We should stop doing the work that God has called us to do. But we do need to be careful. I think practicing Social distancing These types of things as wise Of course Samaritans purse. We're work some of my people are working from home. Others still come to the people have to come to the office. So we're we're still working. We're not we haven't missed anything. We just have to work a little differently than we're used to doing. So let's talk about some of the things that Samaritans purses doing around the around the country and around the globe. In order to combat varies. It really is an amazing organization. What you guys have been doing in order to help. People is truly incredible. What are some of the things that Americans purse has been doing? Not only in the United States but abroad. Well fell three weeks ago. We sent a Emergency Field Hospital To Cremona in northern Italy outside a Milan about fifty miles on Milan. This is the epicenter for the chronicle buyers in Italy and we've got a sixty eight bed field hospital where working in conjunction with the local hospital But we have about Southbound seventy personnel there right now that are. These are doctors and nurses and technicians. That are working in that hospital trying to save life in northern Italy and that That is a very important place for us to be because the Italians were not getting any assistance from anybody in the world and I think when we showed up It gave them a gamma ray of hope that somebody's listening. Somebody cares and they're here helping us and so of course as a Christian organization Ben. We always feel that we should respond in Jesus name. That's what we do and as Christians. We want people to know that God loves them. The God hasn't forgotten them. He has turned his back on them. And then just last week we got a call from New York City. Asked if we'd be willing to put a hospital there and we've always keep to hospitals in and stock in our warehouse. These are the same hospitals at the US military basically the same that the US military uses. We have military former military doctors at work for so we go to the same vendors and we buy the same hospitals that the US military does We've we've make them a little different for our applications but they have Operating Theatres have intensive care units. They have laboratory. The we're able to do the sterilizations everything that hospital will do. We can do it but for the Krona virus as respiratory so we don't need operating theatres for the respiratory care so we we mix it up a little bit differently. We bring in of course more ventilators than you would normally. And that's what we've got set up in corona and then now in New York City when they were asks last week our we set up A team up there over the weekend we were given a central park right across from Mount Sinai Hospital these meadows as ninety eighth and Fifth Avenue and so With set up and actually today The last three days we've been put in the hospital together today. We received our first patients that they believe will be full. Maybe before then to this day I don't know but Were there to serve the people of New York. Anyone who comes? Who doesn't matter who the are been. We're going to help them. We're GONNA love them. We're going to care for them and we're going to give them the best medical care that we possibly can. We're not gonNA give anything less than best I read an article. Maybe you read it to about a person. There are New York who lost a loved one in the hospital and the and the wife was distraught because she could not be in the hospital with her husband died and so she said he's he died alone and how sad and how much remorse she had that her husband died alone will i. Don't I hope and pray? No one dies in hospital but if they do I can promise you been. They're not GonNa die alone doctors and will surround them be praying for him. Hodan holding their hand though they take the last breath and I just want to all relatives no if they come to our hospital we'll take care of them and we're gonNA show them compassion and love the same that the Lord. Jesus Christ would I mean? I'm one of the things that amazed me is not only the good work that you guys are doing but also some of the reactions that could work so naturally twitter which is just a repository of all stupidity known demand. There is a bit of an issue today and over the last few days about Samaritan's purse being behind the hospital people in New York shock to learn some some radicals in York shocked to learn that. Samaritan's purse is a Christian organization that has a Christian view of of particular biblical including the fact that Samaritan's purse believes that homosexual activity is a sin. And somehow they were suggesting that. This invalidates Samaritan's purse doing their work in New York. I just love for you to clarify this person's not in fact telling people who are gay lesbian transgender. They can't show up to the hospital if they have grown virus. I know everybody's welcome gays transgender persons. Show a hospital would show them the same love and compassion and given the same world-class healthcare that we give to anybody else. That comes up but we are Christians. Our we are not equal opportunity employer. We're not we don't do that The the the doctors and nurses all. We're all Christians. And what motivates us is our faith in Jesus Christ and that's what we have in common and that's the that's what makes us That's what makes us go forward and so We use that compassion and that love that concern that Christ showed for people. Are we use that to show the people that come to us so for anybody didn't matter who you are? We're going to treat you the same. We do not discriminate as a released of people that we help. And we've been doing this for fifty years. Samaritans purse is fifty years old year. And there's never been an accusation that we That we Refused helped anybody because they did not believe the same way we believe. We just don't do that. Franklin I WANNA ask you about sort of the the lack of tolerance for people who disagree with you with with many Christians this Marion's person just one second but before we get to that. I WanNa take a moment to give a shout out to all our advertising partners. Who helped make this show possible? We are super grateful that they decide to work with us. And we definitely appreciate our listeners. Going out and patronizing our sponsors and keeping all of this going really appreciate both our listeners and our advertisers. We're all trying to get through this together you me. My shows advertising partner. So let's stick together and get through this. There are things we each look back on and think to ourselves. How did I get it so wrong? It might be wearing multiple polo shirts or booking that trip to the fire festival or dating at one person at one time. You know the person I'm talking about. Well we're always going to get things wrong. I hired Michael Knowles. That's just life but they're also things we can get right like shopping for life insurance and that's where policy genius comes in policy genes mixed finding the right life insurance a breeze in minutes you can compare quotes from top insurers and find your best price you could save fifteen hundred bucks or more a year by using policy.

This was a water polity class and so what does Libertarian turn philosophy say about common pool resources such as water. I love the show and thanks for all that you do and come to visit him. Anna okay so a couple of different solutions to the sort of Komo tragedy of the comments problem so the tragedy of the comments for those who don't understand is if there was a let's say there's a common field where everybody can graze their cattle and so somebody buys a bunch of cattle title grace's out the Commons and now nobody else can can do so. There's sort of a there's no individual property rights. It's just a piece of land helping common you get somebody free riding and taking over the comments of effectively speaking they they can deplete the resources at the expense of everybody else so the libertarian would say somebody should been assigned a property right from the very beginning. Somebody should've been assigned a property right and then that land is real valuable so if they want to if I want to raise my cows you're going to have to pay me more than the price that I would get to raise my cows in order for me to do that and then you can parcel off and then private property ownership absolves the the tragedy of the Commons the the other reality is that many Libertarians acknowledged that their externalities your actions than regulation is appropriate so I know very few Libertarians unless you're very very hard core libertarian who who don't believe that in some circumstances environmental regulation is necessary or the tort law should fill the gap meaning that if I- polluted river and you live down river of me I have now harmed you. That's a tort right so you should be able to sue me. It'd be the Libertarian responsible if I- deplete the water resource which we have a common right then you should be able to sue me for doing that I've damage. You've damaged me in a way or I have damaged away that I was not allowed to do so there a couple of different ways to solve it one is with Tort Law with the assignment of a property the libertarian already so I haven. I don't know if you've heard are. I don't know if I've heard your thoughts on C. S. Lewis so what do you think about. CS Lewis Spanning from his fiction Zhenli the chronicles of Narnia to his theological ideas so fantastic like I think that I think that his nonfiction writing is quite beautiful and elegant can't and while I don't agree with all obvious Jew but it well I I agree with a lot of his. How did you notice yeah it was it was the desire for money wasn't in any case control all the economy and the weather in government yeah that too but the the his theological writing I think is is quite beautiful? There's a lot to it as far as fiction I mean I read my my daughter already. The wind the witch in the wardrobe and she loved it. I mean it's it really is good stuff and yeah well. I I appreciate his I like his is non-fiction a lot better than his fiction but when I was a kid I read all of the Narnia series and I really enjoyed it and it's their Brooke that withstand time yeah and again. It's it's one of those things where now that you're not really like all these Christian allegory but when you're when you don't quite I read the chronicles of Narnia probably seven yeah and so I was like wow there's a cool story about a lion and I'm like wait to lions Jesus Leasing Niessen all right hi Ben Ziff. That'd be really funny. Somebody should dub that like like lines say house land onto uh-huh uh-huh that'd be amazing. Somebody do it. We have somebody created in the audience. That could probably do that right. Probably all right hi Ben Given the recent climate activism debacles. Do you think that it's it's best if the climate debate is relegated to climate scientists who have published research in the field so yes no so the answer is when it comes to the effects of climate change and the extent of climate change yes. I don't know enough to debate that you don't know enough to debate that I do know people who enough to debate that I'm friends with a guy over at Caltech studies this all day long and so when I have a question very often afford him the question and you'll respond with his opinion on it and there's a pretty robust scientific debate about the upper limit and the lower limit to the possibilities of climate change the sensitivity sensitivity of the climate carbon how weather patterns are going to change global warming because cloud cover is very difficult to model all all those sorts of things that is within the scientific community the idea that I'm GonNa the debate that with like Sally Kohn is ridiculous when it comes to the prioritization of values meaning how much we sacrifice now for the possibility of why in the future future. That's a political conversation that's conversation that should be but that's a solution based conversation which is why I'm super irritated with the left because they would much rather do this whole thing where they find the people like climate change isn't existing like those are the bad guys and if only they were committed then suddenly we'd have let let me tell you something if Donald Trump tomorrow came out and said climate changes reality I accept the IPC the report you know what he's still would not accept any of the crap that is pushing yeah and that would not change the math at all at all because the solutions presented by the left are completely the unworkable you know they'll talk about an international carbon-tax. Yeah I'm sure China and India and Brazil where all going where can they sign on the die. Where can they sign on the dotted line? I'm sure that's the thing thing that's happening. My favorite headline was there's this big climate march all across the world and you have GonNa Thunder speaking at the UN who like look she's a very enthusiastic asked a young person and good for her. It's not her fault. It's everybody else's fault for pretending that what she's saying has some level of depth beyond just her emotional her emotional response to in issue the perceived again. That's that's not on her. That's on adults adults should not respond to people who are not providing solutions that way but would that set the New York Times reports on this how it stunning and it's wonderful it's all method of if we just will hard we just clapped hard enough. tinkerbell would come back to life and then the that's not a reference that Greg Thunberg. That's a reference to a climate solution morons so in any case the the there is this vast outpouring of support and then there's a headline in the New York Times that's as at UN climate change summit no progress made yeah and then the whole first three paragraphs is how China was like nope you know why because it turns out that when Greta Thunberg yells IOS at Western leaders about climate change you know who can give a crap Jinping you know why because he's a communist dictator because he will run over people in Hong Kong you think he cares what a very impassioned grohl from the from the Nordic countries has to say about climate change. It doesn't care about that hasn't come about any of the people who are marching in the streets. He's using Chinese Taylor exactly can keep them in poverty. If the economy goes bad he'll star people he doesn't care that people who are presiding over a billion people in India and worrying about the the DEMOC poverty and people dying on mass of typhus are are sitting around going. Oh well you know now that these kids are cutting school in Britain. That changes everything yeah. I'm sure it does sure sure. Do you think that the impeachment inquiry will galvanize the right and turn out the vote in twenty twenty. I think the right will turn out to vote in two thousand twenty because the threat of the left is is too extreme. I think the only way that wasn't going to happen is if they would've nominated somebody like Biden who so boring and half not alive that people would have not been impassioned about but if Elizabeth warns the nominee the right alternates about that's not really the question. The question is how independence vote how suburban women vote and all the Democrats GonNA show up this time was why the right is real sanguine about the selection I am not I think that the left did not turn out in part twenty sixteen because they thought to things trump was definitely gonNA lose and Hillary was a jerk and they were right on one of those things and that meant that a lot of people stayed at home. No one is staying home in two thousand twenty. The turn voter turnout rate is going to be one hundred ninety three percent people who have not yet been born will be voting in this election like people people will go people people the the the size of the popular vote gap will be so incredibly large. I mean because people in California and that doesn't matter air about the whole electoral. It's crappy. Oh God I mean like the every. Do you know person in California. WHO's not gonNA vote? Oh No. I knew a lot of people asked him. Didn't I know people that voted in the primaries that never voted in a primary right before here in California and people will people will people will walk over broken glass in major left. He said he's devote now which means that president from not only has to get out the vote he also the art of politics is I've said many times is making it very difficult to vote for your opponent and making very easy to vote for you. Donald Trump is great at the first part and crappy at the last part. He's very good at making it difficult to vote for his opponent..

"How do you deal with people not liking you because you're conservative in your friend and family groups I mean that is the answer? Can we make that a gift tax and everything like that is the answer I mean if you don't like me because my political viewpoints go fishing or read exactly the Jack in the box. I really like they're not your friend if they don't appreciate that you can have the different political view and if they're in your family and they don't appreciate your politics so much that they treat you badly then so what families and accident the birth being a jerk is is who somebody decides to be so I I. I very little sympathy for this. I mean I hang up. It is one of my pet peeves. I not only hang out with a lot of people with whom I disagree. Politically I will defend many people people I disagree with politically. I'd do it on a regular basis in fact. There's a New York Times reporter who reached out to me this week because there is a feminist Megan Murphy and Megan Murphy was barred barred from twitter because she had suggested that Jessica Tarlov that will that knows Jessica. What was the name of the The wax my genitals human in oh I I went back? I can't remember it's not just guitar. Just any thank you thank you wouldn't want to slur judgemental any just just this this Megan Murphy Head refuse to Label Jessica Nieve by his proper Pronoun and so she was banned Megan was from twitter and so I reached out her and I was like listen. If there's any way I can help so let me no no this is nonsense and so this New York Times reported calm because Megan mentioned this and he's like Dj this a lot like do you reach out to people who've been canceled a lot and I guess yeah and he's like well. What do you say okay and say well? I'm not going to tell you because I think you're part of this culture and he said can you tell me who you talk to. I said no no because then your entire intent is to stop these conversations from happening so that you can shame people for even talking to me right. That's the goal. The goal is to toxic by anybody who has a conversation with me. It's one of the stopped the human kindness completely it's not allowed I have been I promise you I've I've had conversations with extraordinarily high ranking people on the left extraordinarily high ranking people in the Democratic Party and it's always fine. It's always fine. They're human beings we hold basic American values together. I think I hope right listen. If you mean you're talking at least enough to have a conversation conversation and then when it comes to speaking out front nothing right. This is what I call the Happy Birthday Kendra so on my birthday every year I get a bunch of tax from people who are very prominent on the left people journalists people in politics happy birthday Ben and then on twitter nothing why because they're afraid that if they label me a human being then they will be excoriated gory gated for the great crime of having acknowledged human being. I don't care I'll say happy birthday to anybody unless you're a Nazi in which go die right in. I mean I mean don't I know died. Almost you're committing a crime but if you're a Nazi like W- they'll take a long walk short pier except for you right like or Islam radical or something a terrorist then I'll say happy birthday to anybody like when when Chelsea Manning who I totally disagree with is actually a traitor to the country and Chelsea manning had a terrible terrible breakdown on twitter and was threatening to kill himself. I tweeted out like your lifestyle is valued. Don't do this like a human being the human being if your family can't be human being to you they they're. They're really not your family. They're not treating you like family. Go somewhere else for Thanksgiving seriously all right. Hey Ben what is oh. This is a good one. What is your favorite character from the Lord of the Rings Trilogy? Everybody's nobody's Zero Gordon. I have the sorted home so that that's the thing fertile heard yeah. I my kids have been trying to get hold of it and it's extremely dangerous so I've been trying to keep keep them away from it. Hanging over like that magnificent fireplace you have in your Larry fireplace great fire voice but the the the the most fascinating character the character that I'm interested in the most is dead by the end of the first movie spoiler alert but bar Amir's is an extremely interesting character because he's the most human character and the whole story of the the whole story of Lord of the Rings is how human beings are seduced by power and the possibility of power and the only way to deal with the possibility of power is to subsume it and extinguish extinguish it and instead give up your desire for power and embalmer doesn't and so he pays the price even though he's trying to do the right thing using the ring and that that's fascinating and that's really the conundrum of the story the intricate Cricket Character Yes oh my daughter whenever she tries to like gibberish talk. I'm like listen. If you'RE GONNA come up with the language you can literally be like love means as an English and loved means this in your language you can be like. Jr Tolkien's and create your own language then you can sell a bestselling trilogy already trained to Monetize your children. I'm not the Hollywood mom you know.

He will live my son will absolutely live and he turned three and it turned in Him and now if you cross him he will burning to the ground we have from the time she was born. My my daughter from the time she was a very very small trialed it was it was very obvious you had like the stair of Scorn Yep choose my kid and now my son. He's he's made the turn you can be rare Zombie into total annihilation Urkel okay all right greetings Ben. You've often talked about the government vermin getting out of marriage entirely. I definitely agree but what would you say is the best argument for it to appeal to the masses such it everything they make your life worse and your relationship with your significant. Other is between your significant other so if you want that governed by a contract that's a you issue as a you problem is I've bond of saying and have been pummeled for saying. It's a you problem. You have a contract with your like I have a it is an actual contract with my wife. It is a marriage dissolution contract it spells out my duties and it spells out what happens if God forbid we get divorced in fact is a very funny story so when my so in the Jewish community apparently I never thought is the thing but apparently in certain communities it is a thing to haggle over what the divorce the settlement looks like so you actually write that into the pre-nup. It's a pre nup basically and you and so some people like really haggle over this yeah and my father-in-law Wedneday sits down before before married and he's like I don't have a serious conversation on and I was like okay as kind of worried like what is this going to be and say I want to discuss the amount in the Tuba and I said all right and he says well. Do you have any idea what it should be. I don't care whatever you want. Am I getting divorced or we're getting married or San married. Yeah whatever literally any number I don't care and he says okay but but really like what do you want to suggest that I seriously don't care put ten million dollars and he and he goes any any laughs and super happy with a million dollars Oh man. I'm glad I didn't have to do that. 'cause I'm priceless okay well. Let's be real. Does your parents who've been like a cow from Oklahoma. There'd been a fresh cow not an old one one. That's still able to me laying hens yeah exactly get some laying a chicken a cow and a pitchfork pheasants Eric didn't air. It didn't have to go to the mat for you. I'm that's why wild-boar amount on the living recruit screw you write this. This amazing daily wire subscriber says I know it's sort of old news now that but that everyone talking about the impeachment of Donald Trump but what is your opinion on the vape band so I mean my honest opinion overall and I want to study more closely because I honestly haven't paid much attention to it. I is is that it seems like a moral panic to me and based on the sheer number of people who've Abe and the sheer number of people who have actually been hurt by vaping that seems like a not huge number with that said I do happened to personally know somebody who nearly died from vaping so it's I've seen that it can damage people but it seems to me that like most as libertarian like most other products. If you choose to to use a product and then you are hurt by the product then that's kind of on you and so I'm not in favor of banning of products. Almost they're inherently dangerous. It doesn't seem to me from the data that I've seen that vaping is inherently dangerous that it can be used apparently as a way to get off of cigarettes for a lot of people but again. I'M GONNA plead ignorance on this one that sort of my half fast take. I don't really have a deeper take until I've actually studied the stats. It's kind of I kind of viewed as like the if you choose to run the car without your seatbelt on and then you get hurt worse or Dinakar right right but you gotta buckle up kids yelling that that seems right Yep all right Howdy Ben. I hope this is not or someone from the south. My name is William every every single letter. You know what normal Americans like you to. They're not just like coastal lead us that listen to the Ben Shapiro show listen. You can't normal people in Middle America America okay so people in the Middle America the best.

"Remember that time when we broke away from you and then created the great country in the history of the world and you're not a part of it remember that I am actually I am actually anglophile. I'm very grateful for the heritage of Anglo American law and very grateful for Magna Carta. I have a lot of fondness for Great Britain. I I love British history. I will say that a constitution that that is focused in on checks and balances and has the idea of guaranteed rights lying at center is is is a very very good idea and has preserved a lot more liberty particularly in the area of the First Amendment in the Second Amendment then has Great Britain like I have a lot of respect of the parliamentary system but it just is not preserved moved central liberties the same way that the United States has and people should go watch your Sunday special with Daniel Hannan. Also you see me talk to another brick Piers Morgan those good times that was really that was fun. I there's a guy like I actually listened to it on spotify.

I don't know not your turn their cowboys from places that are not in Oklahoma Yeah but the best ones are vocal homa. I don't some would I'd say the best ones are from Dallas Anyway. How can we get Congress back on track women? This is the question they've done nothing but waste our money answer answer. Stop giving the money there you have it really that that is the solution. The answer is that Congress should not have so much power. They should not be able to legislate on US much. The states should be the central repositories of walking and local governments should be the central repositories of lawmaking. Yes Congress will continue to waste your money because wherever there is money to waste people will do it. I mean there has never yet been an institution with lots of money where people don't waste lots of money like that's just the way that it is because also because in government there's no profit incentive to gain of a big company and it doesn't waste lots of money because if it did it would be bankrupt the the government never goes bankrupt. The Nice thing is that if they raise lots of money they know where that came from and it is from you so they can just keep taking your money all right how okay favourite era to study in American History Story Oh man so when I was younger when I was when I was a kid it was revolutionary war history. I loved I loved it yeah super into it as folk score fans no I used to dress up as John Atoms for Halloween every single year on him and seeing all the songs from seventeen seventy six of course all of them and all the words and so revolutionary war history of big into and then when I was in middle school I was big into civil war history so and that lasted probably through I mean I still find civil war and pre-civil history absolutely riveting not just because of the inherent the drama of a country is gonNA fight itself but also because of the moral the moral ambiguity of a lot of the stance that were being being taken like Stephen Douglas stance on slavery anti-slavery but also he wants to keep the country together. The evolution of the country in that period is so is fascinating. you know the dark side side of the American experiment is absolutely worth studying so all of that is riveting when I was in college I was big into the progressive era so I steady Woodrow Wilson a lot and tr now I was into I was doing a lot of world war two era stuff but it really depends I mean I I read history and Sassoli Salei so I'm their areas of history that are sort of under covered like everything basically from the civil war to nineteen hundred is wildly under covered and there's a really I just recommend on the show. There's a great biography of grant. That's out right now by rancher now that's really fascinating and a lot of that is about the post civil war era and the radical Republicans in the attempt to reconstruct construct south and how that failed one of the great tragedies in American history. I love history fascinating stuff so it's hard for me. Choose one particular era. I can usually people ask that I ask give me an era and then I'll trying give you a book. That's good about that era and you're like an encyclopedia library. I mean I I have some I mean I I feel bad now. My wife is doing the comrie method and we're talking about this before and I'm thinking about which books to get rid of yeah. and I WANNA make a list of the books that I have at least I can refer back in my mind to where I got stuff but I have at home something like seventy five five hundred books and so I have to I have to go through all of that and figure out many books yeah and it probably read eighty percent of them. Maybe wow maybe five percents so when you walk into a bookstore you're perusing online what makes you have you ever gone to buy a book that you didn't intend by. What made you buy that book so I I used to do this a lot when I was in law school so when you now the kids once you have kids you have no time for anything the serve kids it might actually like it but mike his kids like it too but then it's also you have to put all the books back? That's true myself. Yeah my son's a wreck I mean he'll just like burn down on the store but my daughter will sit there and really enjoy but you know when I when I was in law school every spare minute basically because there's nothing to do in Cambridge in the winter I mean it's dark and cold and terrible and so every minute I just walked down to the Harvard Bookstore or some of these bookstores they had down there now just browse and the usually I'd go to a particular section and yeah I would use the blurbs on the back of the book is sort of a guide as to at least where it was gonNA stand politically nonfiction book when it came to fiction I would usually go through you know top hundred lists and see what people had to say yeah and then I checked to see if the premise was interesting yeah and so that's why if I look at top hundred lists of top hundred novels voles all read most of them but I do the same thing with movies like if I wanted to watch movie when I was back in college law school I would go to the top hundred listen. I I would just watch something on the list so literally seen every single movie on the top one hundred and that's and I mean it's not a bad way to do it. I mean at least you've you've read the stuff that's supposed to be great trade even if it doesn't end up being great or seen that sort of stuff but at the coal thing to go off of that yeah I mean now when I go to a bookstore it's more like is there an author who I like and is there a new book out by that author author so there's book I'm reading right now. Call deeper calmer ALANTHEA's and I think he's he wrote a book called Matterhorn about the Vietnam War. This book is about the logging in the in the late nineteenth century in Oregon but he's a great author and he can really right and so for him. It was like a new Book Came Out Wall Street Journal Book Review Section is the single best thing in print. It's great their view section is just fantastic and so every Shibat my parents who subscribed bring that over and I read that through I get a lot of my new book recommendations from their call all right in a recent conversation station about the Second Amendment with a friend I mentioned that it is important because it is a right protected by the Constitution to which he responded quote but the Constitution is old close quote. How would you have responded to him by laughing hysterically at his stupidity? That's that's that's the dumbest response ever. You know what is old a lot of stuff and you know it's good a lot of stuff and you know what's dumb a lot of new stuff like why is the age thing or an idea somehow representative quality. There are a lot of dumb new ideas. The idea that a man can become a woman is idiotic this new oh idea you know it's an old idea that a man cannot become a woman that happens to be far more intelligence. You know it's an old idea. The stuff in the ten commandments seems pretty intelligent to me. Yeah I mean there's there's lots of stoats watches. I mean there's antique but in terms of Principles I mean my whole book is about the idea that a smart person looks at the past and tries to call from the past what is quality and then card away. What is not a stupid person looks at the past and says all those old idiots? They didn't know anything and if I had been them I'd be saying exactly same thing I'm saying today and it's a really stupid. Irritating juvenile way of reading history is why you see people like George Washington slaves. I'm a better person than George Washington like nope. You're not. I'm sorry to tell you this probably not smarter probably not better and you didn't live then so you don't know and this idea that you would have you'd have been there new. You would've said to George Washington. You know what's wrong with you. You're not for gay rights. If you're living like seventeen eighty sure I'm sure that's what you would have said. Also in your fantasy world you get green energy from Unicorn and so what what what are you what are you talking about people exist in the context in which they live and there's something also deeply sell flattering about that and deeply insulting wanting to people who live in parts of the world that disagree with your values by the way you know you have all of these people who are like Oh yeah all cultures are equal and all ideas are equal the same people will then suggest that their ideas are so so eminently correct in so eminently obvious that could born been born at any time in any place and they would have held those values regardless said well. Guess what you know. The number of people who hold your values across the span span of human history is like seven really the the people who are living right now some of them hold your values not the vast majority of humanity. The vast majority of humanity does not hold your values and so maybe you should think think about how did your values rise. Where did they come from? What are the roots of those values? Even the values that you think are different than new very often they have roots and values that are older so the roots of same sex marriage for example that the argument libertarian argument is not hurting anybody and so it's nobody else's business what I do well that is a that is a value that is founded a belief in individual rights and individual worth and value and that in turn is found in a belief that you are an individual human being with unique value and that's actually a biblical value so you can take Biblical valley wide variety of directions and that doesn't mean that the current interpretation of the biblical value is is necessarily correct but if you.

Thank God well played. God literally key is this. Is this a holiday that you can eat though it's not a fast day right not fast although next Wednesday's a fast day and then ten days as after that as a fast day okay so yeah here's auto fasting you could do like a Ben Shapiro weightwatchers plant as a Yo Yo Diet. This is like you eat a lot of Shana. You don't need it all on some good Dalia. You don't need it all on Yom Kippur. You'd a ton coat like it's just up and down like Renee Zellweger before and after British Joneses diary just like rollercoaster with wait that's exactly right and then I have really a lot of plastic surgery to me all right. We'll get back to the topic at hand which is the conversation and we are conversing but we want all of view to be able to ask your questions. which is what we'll be doing for an entire hour here at the Delaware? Please remember that at our conversation is live for everyone to watch but only the daily wire subscribers get to ask the question. How do you ask the questions head on over to a brand new recently updated daily daily wire dot com super fast? It's super cool super fast..

"A car truck right shapiro in their how did you hear about us box so they know we sent you because that's how you heard about them so read shapiro in that how did you hear about us box at rock auto dot com so let's talk about what it was like the cover the supreme court obviously the supreme court has become incredible hot button certainly over the course of my lifetime really think it's it's been exacerbated over the really since roe versus wade but even in the last fifteen or twenty years and seems to become the number one issue and a lot of people's radar many people a tribute resident trump's victory in fact it there is an open supreme court seat in that wasn't really a seat on so what was it like to cover the supreme court how politically wasn't on when i first got started i realized how much i had learned the very first giant case i covered over there was dealing with some guantanamo bay the rights of various prisoners they're it'd been back and forth through the federal court system numerous times an i just kinda reid the rancor and get ready for covering it there at the supreme court i was like whoa this is a whole different level of 'em reporting it's a toughie discover 'cause they're almost zero leaks over there i mean any one who's clerking they're they're not gonna blow their entire legal career giving you information it's not like congress where people like here i've got stuff i wanna i wanna leave videos completely the opposite but i loved it because it wasn't intellectual challenge for me i was getting to you is that law background doing it i just i knew i had a lot of work to do to get up to speed over there so there's a little overwhelming in the beginning on that's a very austere place a and they don't mess around over there but i've really enjoyed getting to know the various justices as much as you can really trying to figure out how their brains work how you think they're gonna vote on and really attributing the oral arguments because there were a lot of them lee booby traps on both sides and they want to play devil's advocate you don't know how they're gonna vote 'em so i yeah i.

"Thanks so much for joining the Ben Shapiro show. Sunday, special government, I mean, not that you had much of a choice in this sort of work here are scraping the bottom of the barrel on, but I appreciate it. Okay. Well, for those of us who don't know anything about your background, except that you sit in cards and have a beard, and our dour wh what's your what's your background? How how did you get to the point where you get paid to sit in cars and right columns and be down and have a beard. You know, it's it's it's a really uninteresting story. But I think I think it began with I was I was kind of a terrible student. So I didn't people ask me all the time. Did you go to college? And what did you go to college for? Did you go to college for singing and cars and getting screaming into a phone and the answer is is no I didn't go to college. I was a pretty bad student barely graduated high school don't to why mentioning all this. But it's true. In fact, I didn't even know that I was going to graduate high school until the way that I found out is I went to the graduation rehearsal, which for some reason you have to rehearse walking across the stage. And I knew that if I went to the hersal and my name was on a seat. So I had an assigned seat that I'm going to graduate, and I'm gonna get to. And so it was and so that's. And I kind of bounce around for. But I I knew that I I wanted to somehow sort of being gauged in the conversation on a public level. I didn't really know how to go about doing that. So I figured maybe one ways to get into radio, which is what I did for about seven years got into just music radio is a music DJ, and and make it about seventeen thousand dollars a year doing that basically, poverty wages and at some point. I realized that this is not, you know, it's hard to climb your way up and trust your radio these days..

"And it turns out four billion years isn't enough. But it certainly the abrupt jumps that Gould was talking about. We're not allowing the mechanism enough time to work. So we had this this kind of. Irony in evolutionary biology in the eighties and nineties in particular goals model pretty much was dismissed by the early two thousands. But you had Gould's model was viewed as a good one for describing the fossil record accurately, but it didn't have a mechanism the Darwinian mechanism, but it was inconsistent with the fossil record. And also, then as we've later critique the mechanism was also lacks the creative power to generate the information necessary to build big new major innovations in the history of life. So from a design perspective, what exactly is the theory of how one species would become another suddenly is that there's a bunch of dead DNA that activated or is it that, you know, right something injects new information into the system. How would that work? Well, the the question of species raises this whole question of envelopes variability, we see evidence of design at the the low sigh of the design are when you get the major innovations occurring in history of life. But the information that is present in. A major group of organisms might be sufficient to allow a lot of variation within within an envelope. So that's why they're there is Evelyn. We think there is clearly evolution that takes place. The question is how how much information was present. And how how wide the envelopes of variability are that are generated by that information. So there's a terrific of loosener biologists and cell biology biologists at the university of Chicago also named Shapiro James Shapiro, who's got a new theory of Aleutian. He calls natural genetic engineering, and he notices that and has documented that that many of the mutations that we actually see at work are not random at all. They're they're an expression of what he calls preprogramed adaptive capacity where there's a an external trigger stress put on an organism and that triggers the the production of certain proteins that for which the organism had the capability of building all along as it had the genetic information there, and so a lot of the evolution. We. Is actually preprogramed adaptive capacity, which is really an exciting biological phenomenon that the Darwinian haven't really taken full account of. But it does raise the question of the origin of that. Adaptive capacity. We're the pre-programme come from so intelligent design says the the inputs of information from outside the system from an intelligence are located in that preprogrammed adaptive capacity, but it the theory also acknowledges that there's Evelyn possible doing downstream as the result of that pre existing information. All right. Let's talk about the origin of life problem. The the question being how did organic life arise from non organic material there some experiments that were done in the early twentieth century in which under certain conditions. It looked as though maybe organic material could be created from non organic material. But they're really as you point out has not been a great explanation of how nano redneck material could create an information system like DNS wondering, so. Yeah. The famous experiments still in of the biology textbooks is the Miller Yuri experiment of nineteen fifty two and nineteen. Fifty-three they sparked a chamber that had gases known as reducing gases that then spontaneously produced a few of the twenty protein forming amino acids two or three problem is that amino acids do not a protein make and proteins by themselves. Do not make life. So they were really quite a long ways away from demonstrating anything like a spontaneous chemical origin of life. It's ironic that that experiment was performed in the same year as Watson and creeks discovery of the structure of the DNA molecule and the subsequent elucidation the information bearing properties of the molecule because in what's called chemical evolutionary theory by the nineteen sixties and certainly by the early nineteen eighties. The field reached a state of impasse precisely because the biologist and the and the Biochemists realized that to build an actual living cell. You've gotta have information-rich molecules. You can't just have the components. Can't just have the letters. You've got to have the sentences..

"Sorry. Moving on Evan Ben. Why do you have a problem with men wearing minimal clothing? I e a grout arranger panties, most amount of homosexual. So there's that. Mostly, is there another part of the answer? I in general MFN of modesty. That's always it's both the, I'm not gay, so I don't really enjoy that. And also the also the generally in favour of modesty, but most of it is the, I don't really enjoy seeing men unclothed. So I would say it's mostly up. Neither do I, which makes it real hard to work with Knowles or it'd be married. Apparently. I mean, that's. Mainly mainly should've taken a picture though of Crowder in his shorts with Knowles in his boxers that he likes to one around the office in. It's like there's one creep at every company just set this place on firemen, and we have ours on fire. AVI says, hi, if someone were to travel back in time, fifteen to twenty years, what would he have to be like to be friends with younger Ben Shapiro? I know it wasn't really a friends person. It's always been more of a family person than a friend's person. Honestly, the thing that would have been interested. I always liked to have interesting conversations with people, so you'd actually have to be interested in things. My pet peeve is people who are boring because the truth is that when people this is Dennis Prager line, it's exactly right when people say they're bored with things, it's because they're boring, right? If you're interested in things and you find the world and interesting place and you are in wanna talk about ideas, then this is always true, and this is true of my friends. Now, all of my friends. Now we enjoyed talking about ideas. We don't really wanna minute lunch and people are talking about people. I'm really not all that interested in it. All right. Some these singer eight says I was listening to pod, save America. I don't know why a couple of weeks ago they mentioned how Oklahoma, that's my home state passed a massive tax cut that crippled the state's finances. How much of this is you know, honestly, I don't know the answer to that. I'd actually have to research that I haven't paid a lot of attention to Oklahoma because I don't live there, but it's, but I'll check that out and I'll get back on that one. All right.

"Important is because one of the arguments and the civil war was that once the federal government had violated the sovereignty of particular states those states were signatories to the constitution and therefore they no longer had to abide by it right the contract against the states have been violated and so states have the ability and the right to pull out this is what they call the compact theory that the constitution was a compact between the states it was not actually compact of the people hamilton for seeing this problem in seventeen eightynine is already writing about he says the possibility of a question of this nature proves the necessity of laying the foundations of our national government deeper than in the mere sanction of delegated authority the fabric of american empire ought to rest on the solid basis of the consent of the people all caps the streams of national power ought to flow immediately from that original fountain of all legitimate authority so this is why there were specific constitutional conventions called in each state in order to approve the constitution and the idea here was that it was the people themselves we're going to approve the constitution and so the compact of the constitutions between all of the people not just the various states who have their various interests at play okay so we'll be back here tomorrow with all the latest news i'm ben shapiro this is the ben shapiro show the venture bureau shows produced by mathis glover executive producer jeremy boring senior producer jonathan hey our technical producer is austin stevens edited by alison garowe audio's mixed by mike komeito herron makeup is just what i'll vera the venture bureau show is a daily wire forward publishing production copyright four publishing two thousand eighteen.
