Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and Their Battle to Save America's Soul With Brian Kilmeade
"I'm talking to Brian kilmeade, author of the president and the freedom fighter, and you just shared something that I really was I never thought about this. So when Lincoln is elected in 1860, a number of states had seceded. First South Carolina 6 more. Okay, and so that's before his inauguration. Before he gets to The White House. Okay, so he's elected. They secede. And then on the assumption he's going to free the slaves and they're not going to deal with it. And he says to get them back into the union, he says you can have your slaves. Thirteenth Amendment could be yours. Okay, so that's the freed slaves. You could be enslaved. And so exactly how did that go? So obviously you said that Frederick Douglass feels betrayed. So it took him some time. I mean, it's kind of funny because you get this with Lincoln. He takes off everybody and at some point, right? And a real conservative today would say suspending habeas corpus. I don't know. You know, it's like it's very interesting that real leadership will do that. It will take off everybody in a way. But so for a while, it seems to me that Frederick Douglass must have not been very pleased with him. Absolutely not. And then when he brings up colonization to solve the problem of the African Americans in America, he say, listen, we made a big mistake. It happened before we were born. So can we send you back? So he invites newspapers, all the press with him, like selective members of the press. And he brings in African American leaders, doesn't invite Douglas. And he says, made a big mistake. Obviously, blacks and whites can't live together, and it's part of this part of the reason this is the reason for the war. So I would like to make you an offer give you plenty of money to go back to Central and South America or wherever you want to go. Douglas, everyone in South America or Africa. Africa, too. He said you could go wherever you wanted to go. We will send you. So we will free you and let you go. Absolutely out of the country. Out of the country. And this bothered Douglas. Beyond by these, I'm an American. I don't want to go anywhere. Where am I born? I'm born here. You got to send me elsewhere. Since when camp blacks and whites get together, remember, and I haven't brought this up yet, but they have another similarity. They both read this book called the Colombian orator. The Columbian order teaches how to speak publicly, teach how to hold yourself and also has great essays from these people like Cicero, Socrates, George Washington, people in our past, and they're thinking big and grandiose. So you wonder why that speech worked at 28? Lincoln's been reading every day since 7. That's right and envisioning himself on that level without the cockiness and ego with the humility to know that it may be what he was capable

"Yeah and thanks for bringing me to that So what happens in life as soon as he started reading opening up his mind and really realizing what life could be reading about George Washington's Cicero Socrates the Bible And that's where they never told slaves to read because they thought a few educated and they want more We just want them to work for free And we all wanted to see what life could be because we wanted to think that they're inferior If you taught a slave to reiterate you could be arrested It was against the law He was determined to find another way Plus he was growing up in an area where you want his friends will wait Kids don't see color He was convinced of it he wrote about it because I'm convinced you don't see color adults make that And that's why it's just not digressed too much The CRT conversation you're having on a regular basis is not a side conversation It is the conversation because you're making first grade and look at their skin why You're making a fourth creator wonder if there are pressure why The two original question he tried is everything self esteem is everything So he they're trying to beat him and break him because he is so obstinate and so determined to matter questioning everything They sent him to a slave breaker And they slave breaker decide to do is going to work into the bone The way they describe it he was going through It sounds like he was dehydrated And instead of helping him they beat him He escapes and goes back to his original master And he goes you got to go back I licensed you Adam getting paid for this You got to go back So he has to go back And then all of a sudden you know he's going to get a beating Grabs his leg He breaks free to try to tie him up He won't have it He asks for help the guy when you get it So it's Douglas 17 years old against the slave breaker He goes I wouldn't attack him but every time he got close I busted him And went on for over an hour according to Douglas's biography and others And he gave me every guide that calls he beat the hell out

"Socrates succeeded in convincing youth for of the logical inconsistency of his appeal to quote that wish to god's love unquote as a criterion or a definition of the pie act unquote according to socrates. Utha froze. problem is that his gods are many unpredictable and like men fallible. Sometimes they do not agree with one another as to what pleases him and since they are many what pleases one may not please another socrates demonstrates utha for that and looking for proper quote unquote first principle it is necessary to go beyond the gods something prior to them as a reference point quote. The god's love what they love because it is wholly unquote and not the reverse. The priority is of course a logical one in the apology. Socrates accounts for his actions by saying that they were divinely inspired. He was made to act as he does. He was compelled to quote unquote. Ask questions in activity that apparently is threatening to the authority of the state socrates becomes the nemesis of the state as he demonstrates to the younger fenian that the politicians are the least wise of its participants. The point that we are concerned with is the way in which socrates defenses actions by identifying. His behavior is having made necessary by the order of the gods. He is in fact saying that he cannot helping socrates. He cannot help being as he is. Socrates is being charged with quote unquote in piety and is it is therefore necessary that he brings the gods to his defense but more than that. He does so because of the nature of that. Which is he's defending. Socrates is after all defending an entire way of life not merely one specific or concrete action which in platonic terms is. Utha froze mistake to do this. He must appeal to something that is outside of greater than independent of that life. Something to which it can be referred the moral principle of justification for quote unquote. All actions cannot be in terms of anything human for that would be inconsistent..

"Oh and here's well. I'll i'll save this for the recommended. So we're ready for the recommended so Thank you Socrates for talking with us in the recommended section. We have at the end of our shows and each of us have something today. So richard what do you have for us in recommended right so i was just recommending. Tsa pre Not tsa pre global entry visa. But here's a part of it. That many people are not aware of so when you sign up for four global entry visa you sign up and then you have to wait a few weeks while they do a background check and then after you get alerted. We finished our background check. Now you have to go into a customs office somewhere and they fingerprint chew etcetera and then you get it but if you have got to that point where you can make the appointment if you are coming back to the country and coming through customs you can just go to that office and they will complete your global entry visa right there on the spot so you don't have to make the appointment you don't have to go through the hassle of going to a customs office two to complete it so most airports have customs office. I wouldn't say most. There is one in las vegas in the las vegas airport in terminal three And i mean. I think it's more than a customs office might be an immigration office. It's it's some kind of special office. But i i don't know if they have one for example in reno so they're not everywhere so places with global flights i guess but i mean burbank for example has some international flights. But i don't know that they have an immigration officer. Gotta have something in beautiful downtown burbank. My recommendation is the latest book from bradwell called bomber mafia. I'm a big fan of that. In general i know. Richard isn't but this book has little to do with social psychology..

I take my teammate ni- about once a day once every few weeks we go on a trip and we'll hit up a market. Get trying to get in about thirty hours in so i would say probably getting in three to four hundred hours a year right now. We know when. I was able to play my local shop.

"From an individual and yes you know to to really maximize your earning potential you're playing against individuals you wanna seek out people who basically are degenerate gamblers and and for me like in backgammon. That got really kind of distasteful And often they were really sort of awful people who i did not want to be around definitely There's you know there's the the guys at the club. They're good guys. You don't wanna take a bunch of money and then feel guilty that you're taking money from their you putting food on the plate with kids or anything like that so there there is some of that for sure and then there's reputation right so i have you know a career and I do business with folks at the club. Until i become that guy who's taken thousands of dollars off other people it's it's not a good look But that said i was in putting game with some guys the other day and we set up a a a good game.

This progressive walks away. Four hundred bucks. Yeah so how did they try to counsel you on this golf course at this. Men's club. yeah.

We talked too much about slots and we really feel like. We're really seeing much of anything. Other than the fact that advantage slot play exists so But the other thing that i mentioned on twitter. Is that the people that i know that know a lot. About slots are certainly not willing to talk about the nuts and bolts of which machines they play and how they calculate their edge and things like that so the black roundtable was very popular. We will do things like that in the future but this suggestion of a slot roundtable for now. I don't see anybody wanting to participate in that. Even though i know there are many many people in the audience would love to hear it because they would like to know more about how to gain advantages slots certainly like to know more about that too and my current slot. Ap knowledge is somewhere in the negligible ring. So i have already shared. Were their audience. Everything i know about flood a piece. I I do know enough funding.

"Of defense and i would rather die having spoken after my manner than speak at your manner at live or neither in war or yet at law or any man to us every way of escaping de often in battle there is no doubt that if a man will throw away his arms at all on his knees before his pursuers ma escape death and in other dangers. There are other ways of escaping. If a man is willing to say and do anything the difficulty my friends is not in avoiding death but in avoiding unrighteous for that runs faster than deaths. I am old move slowly and the slower runner has overtaken bait and my accusers are keen with the fast. Runner is unrighteousness as overtaken them. And now i depart hints condemned by you to suffer the penalty of death. And they do go there. Ways them by the truth do suffer the penalty of villainy and wrong and i must abide by my award. Let them abide by. There's i suppose that these things may be regarded as fated and. I think that they are well. And now man who condemned me i would fain prophesying to you or i am about deny that is the hour in which men are gifted with prophetic power at i prophesied to you are my murderers that immediately after my death on Far heavier than you haven't selected on me will surely await you me. You have kill because you wanted to escape the accuser and not to give an account of your lives but that will not be as you suppose are otherwise or. I say that there will be more accusers of you than there. Are now accusers hitherto. I have restrained as they are younger. They will be more severe you and you will be more offended at them or if you think that by killing men you can avoid the accuser century your lives. You are mistaken. That is not a way of escape with either possible or honorable. He easiest and noblest way is not do the brushing others but to be improving yourselves. This is the prophecy which i utter before my departure do. The judges who have condemned will have quitted. I would like also to talk with you about this thing. Which has happened while the magistrates are busy. And before i go to the place at which i must not stay in a while for we may as well with one another while there is time you are my friends and i should like to show you the meaning of this event which has happened to me all my judges or you. I'm a truly judges. I should like to tell you a wonderful. Circumstance is a to the familiar oracle within me as constantly been in the habit of opposing the even about titles if i was going to make slip or error about anything and now as you see there is come upon me that baby thought and is generally believed to be the last and worst eagle but the oracle eight no sign of opposition. Either as i was leaving my house in going out in the morning. Or when i was going up into this fort or while i was speaking at anything which i was going to say and yet i have often been stopped in the middle of his speech but now it nothing i either said or get touching this matter as the oracle opening. What do i take the explanation of this. I will tell you. I regard this as a proof that what has happened to me is and that those of us who think that s is an evil are in error. This is a great group to me. Of what i am saying for the customary sign which surely owes me and i've been going to evil and not good let us reflect in another way and we shall see that there is great reason to hope that zeke. Good or one of tuesday's either. Death is a state of nothingness and utter unconsciousness as men say there is a change in migration of the soul from this world to another now if you suppose that there is no consciousness but a sleep the sleep of him who is undisturbed even by the site of threes will be unspeakable game or if a person were to select the night in which his sleep was undisturbed even by drains were to compare this with the other days and nights of his life. And then we're to dulles how many days and nights he had passed in the course of his life better and more leslie than this one i think that any man i will not say private man but even the great gate will not find many such days or nights when compared with the others out death is like as i can say that to die is gain or eternity is then only a single nights but if death is journey to another place and they're as men say all the dead. What would all my friends and judges can be greater than this. If indeed when the pilgrim arrives in the world below he is delivered from the professors of justice. In this world and finds the true judges who are set to give judgment there i notice and rhadamanthus and ak- centripetal lima's and the other sons of god who were righteous in their all life that pilgrimage will be worth making what would not a man if he might converse with orpheus and use essiet essiet and ulmer. May this be true. Let me die again. And again i do shall have a wonderful interest in a place where i can converse with alameda. As and ajax the son of telemann and other heroes of old who has suffered death through an unjust judgment in there will be no small pleasure. As i think in comparing my own sufferings with there's above all i shall be able to continue my search into true and false knowledge as in this world so also in that i shall find out who is wise and who pretends to be wise and is not what what not a man of oh judges to be able to examine the leader of the great trojan expedition or a dc's or Or numberless others. Men and women to what infinite delight would be in conversing with them at asking them questions or in that world do not put a man to death for this certainly not or besides being happier in that world then in this. They will be immortal. If what is said is true therefore judges be of good cheer about death and no this of truth that no evil can happen to a good man either in life or after death he and his are not elected by the gods nor has my own approaching in happened by chance but i see clearly that to die and be released was better for me. And therefore the oracle eve no sign for which reason also. I am not angry with my accusers. Were they have done no harm. Although neither of them meant to do me any good and this. I may gently late still. I have a favor to ask them. When my sons are grown up..

If i had thought fit to leave nothing undone. Nothing unsaid might have gained an acquittal. Not so the deficiency which led to my conviction was not of words. Certainly not but i had not boldness or impudence or inclination would rescue as you have like a to address you weeping and wailing implementing and saying and doing many things which you have been accustomed to here for others and which as i say are unworthy of being but i thought that i ought not to do anything common for me in the hour of danger or do i now repent of the manor.
"socrates" Discussed on Harvard Classics
"Time to the search for truth and virtue. He took his part as a citizen both in war and in peace and for the hardships of poverty in a shrewish wife with common difference. He did not give formal instruction after the fashion of other philosophers of his time but went about engaging people in conversation seeking chiefly by questions to induce his contemporaries and especially the young men to think clearly and to act reasonably he made profession of no knowledge except of his own ignorance and the famous socratic irony was shown in his attitude of apparent willingness to learn from anyone who professed to know the inevitable result of such conversations however was the reduction of the would-be instructor to estate. Either of your tation at the unmasking of his pretensions or of humility and eagerness to be instructed by his questioner it was natural that such a habit should create enemies and socrates was finally accused of introducing new gods and corrupting the youth. His defense as will be seen from the apology was conducted with his customary firm adherence to his convictions and with entire fearlessness of consequences he could. In all probability have easily escaped. The death sentence had he been willing to take a conciliatory tone but he died three nine thousand nine bc a martyr to his unswerving devotion to truth. Socrates wrote nothing and we learn what we know of his teachings. Chiefly from his disciples xenophon and plato. Plato was also an athenian born in four twenty eight bc of a distinguished family. He became a disciple of socrates at the age of twenty and after the death of his master. He traveled in egypt. Sicily and elsewhere returning to athens about three hundred. Eighty eight here. He established his school of philosophy in garden near a gymnasium called the academy and here he spent the last forty years of his life numbering among his pupils his great rival in philosophical renown aristotle unlike socrates. Plato took no part in the civic life of athens but he was much interested in political philosophy and said to have been consulted by statesmen. Both at home and abroad. All the works of plato have been preserved and they include besides those here printed the republic symposium favors protocols the dita's gorgeous and many others they take the form of dialogues in which plato himself appears if at all only as a listener and in which the chief speaker is socrates as plato developed. The philosophy of socrates especially on speculative lines far beyond the point reached by socrates himself. It is impossible to judge with any exactness precisely. How much of the teaching is the masters how much the pupils the philosophy of these dialogues has remained for over two thousand years one of the great intellectual influences of the civilized world and they are as admirable from the point of view of literature as a philosophy. The style is not only beautiful in itself but as adapted with great dramatic skill to the large variety of speakers and the suggestion of situation in the drawing of character the work of a great artist. The three dialogues here given our at once favorable examples of the literary skill of plato and intimate pictures of the personality of his master..
Experience Traveling By Train
"Start today's travel. With rick steves. With other. Eric wanner he recommends seeing the usa from a long distance train. Ride on amtrak. Our interview with eric was recorded just before the covid shutdowns kicked in when we travel. It's fun to see the world from a different perspective eric. Winer believes travel by train offers a rare combination of expansiveness and coziness. He spent a lot of time travelling by train while reading the work of great philosophers and for him. It goes together beautifully. He writes about that in his latest book. The socrates express eric. Thanks for joining us. Happy to be here so you actually took the train from washington dc to portland that sixty four hours. You could have flown in about five hours. There's just nothing rational about that. No it makes no sense. It makes no sense from a time point of view. Obviously it makes no sense from a financial point of view It really doesn't make sense from a mental health point of view. Either but i loved it. What can i say. I love every every minute of every hour of you know. It wasn't always. It's not the most glamorous way to travel but this just something to something awfully compelling about you made a very good case of that first of all you talked about the people you should the platform with. I mean okay. You're standing on the platform with surrounded by twenty or thirty people waiting to get onto that Train who are they okay. I'm going to do this quickly. Therefore determined therefore categories of long distance amtrak travelers. Okay number. One is retired people with lots of time on their hands. Number two is people who are afraid of flying. These are my compatriots to They take the train a number three or foam irs a fomer is a real enthusiasts. Who gets very excited about. Locomotives and other things like that means. They're so excited. They foam at the mouth. That's the idea okay You care to take a guess with the fourth category. As you'll never guess mennonites mennonites lots of minute nights a matter night. You mean like Lou dates are people that don't want modern. Well they apparently they They can fly but they can travel by train long distances. So these are the four categories and then there was me and i don't fit any of those categories. I was a category into myself for your kind of the opposite. Because you mentioned you have criminal phobia which is A fear of lack of time. And and you do just the opposite. It's that some kind of therapy. It was it was sort of this. What are you desensitize yourself to it. Well i always feel that your time is valuable. And i need to be making the best use of it and when you're on the train for some sixty plus hours you're just you're forced to slow down. I mean you're either go crazy or you slow down. Those two choices and i decided to slow down. The train is going to get the portland at its own pace. And there's nothing you can do about it. It will stop occasionally for an hour to for no apparent reason whatsoever and then start up again for no apparent reason and i would ask my fellow passengers if we stopped and they've just laugh at me like We got a new one. We gotta a rookie. Here in amtrak stan. You do not ask why. He thinks he's human. Beings are more important than freight right. We do we. We wait for free trains. Because amtrak does not own most of the tracks across the country the free traits everytime i go to portland derek from seattle and the train. I think i'm doing something nice for the environment. And so on. Or it's just kind of a cool thing to do and it's frustrating. Because i have chronic phobia also and i don't know beiber waiting here and somebody reminded me freight trains get priority over humans in the united states. That's not the case in europe but in the united states. That's the case but for those of us who like you and me have a fear of lack of time where where we schedule things. Its pedal to the metal. It's interesting how a long trip on a train you mentioned. It was like you hit a mother of time. Suddenly you had this big gift. That i guess you got more time just by slowing down right. And it's it's forced right because you can't go off and say we're going to go into into town and in fire up the laptop and get some work done. I mean you're on the train and you stay on the train and it's got through. I went through an interesting cycle. I i thought oh this is great. I've got this time. This is really good. I should do something. And then i just get antsy. And i started rearranging my little room at and moving things around and i started to go a little bonkers. I needed to do something. And eventually i came to acceptance that that he was gonna take a really long time to get to portland and i needed to just go with the flow and It took me a. I think somewhere around montana. I hit acceptance in there.

Virgil and the Funeral for a Bug
"Was a poet who lived in the first century. Bc e during the the augusta periods of early imperial room and You might know him best from his most famous work the epic poem the aeneid which is about sort of the founding lineage of rome and the adventures of the trojan hero aeneas who after the trojan war travels from troy and eventually becomes the ancestor of the roman people Virgil is often considered one of the greatest latin poets and he was wildly popular during his own lifetime You know he. He received commendations from from kings and the wealthy. And and you know everybody thought like this. This guy is just got the juice. And i had virgil on my mind A lot last year. Because rachel and i were re-reading dante's divine comedy. And if you'll recall of course virgil is the pilgrims guide through hell and purgatory and the divine comedy so the spirit of virgil. He's been living out the centuries in limbo because Though he was a very virtuous man he's one of the virtuous pagans. He was never baptized as a christian. So he can't go to heaven he's got a hang out in this sort of antechamber of hell where everybody sits around sighing. Because interesting has ever happening to them. I have to admit that. I tend to when anybody mentions virgil. That's the first place. My mind goes is dante's inferno which is probably not fair. It's like if you were to mention the name of socrates and there was someone were to go. Yeah yeah he's in bill and ted's excellent adventure that's exactly eighty nine. That's exactly where i knew you were going with the villain ted. Yeah yeah the that is pretty good because though it slightly different because it's not a it's not at all parodied in the divine comedy. In fact i would say it's exactly the opposite in the divine comedy. He is he is revered. Yeah yes he. He's reimagined as this like superhuman wizard. For for dante he Virgil is the embodiment of wisdom and reason so for the intended readers of the divine comedy. We're supposed to understand that. Virgil is like a ten out of ten platinum level. Cool be st is just like this ultimate wizard of knowledge and about half of the state you remember. How like basically every other time. Dante talks in the first two books of the divine comedy. It's just to say like virgil you are so right. I would never doubt your wisdom. Tell me more you know and it kind of stinks then. Because i remember when we got to the end of the purgatory and virgil does not get to move on to heaven with dante. He has to stay behind and be beatrice takes him on from there. We're really mad. That virgil didn't get to go to heaven. Yeah yeah no. I mean so much so much time is devoted to him. It also much stripped away at that point. You know. it's like if it's hard to follow dante in into paradise just because you know that there aren't going to be any demons playing trumpets with their bombs or anything there's gonna be Monsters so much and virgils not gonna be there. So it's it's part. Three in a series is always tough. Yeah i agree. Yeah the the trilogy is a hard sell to to complete with dignity. And but i think for modern readers that sense of injustice about virgil that is interpreted by the characters in the inferno as you know perfect divine justice. It's the one person version of the dynamic that plays out throughout the whole thing whereas they're going through hell it just seems like wow. This is really unfair. Yeah but anyway long. Before virgil was guiding dante up the mountain of purgatory in his post mortem shade form people were telling lots of legends about his life and one of those legends. Is that once at his home. In rome virgil built a tomb and held an extravagant funeral for a dead fly. Like a fly as in the insect with six legs and wings This story is very probably untrue. And we'll get to why. That is in a bit. But i i wanted to explore some of the details and for this. I was reading an article by george pendle in cabinet magazine. In two thousand seven called virgils fly and he describes the legend in the following way quote held in the grounds of virgils home on rome's esquel line hill. The funeral attracted the great and good of the city. Dirges were sung and tributes read virgils. Patron my sinus delivered. A lengthy and moving eulogy to the departed insect and virgil was himself said to have uttered a few of his exquisite versus over the tiny carcass tomb had been erected and the lifeless body of the fly was placed within it to the whales and moen's of the professional mourners so lavish where the commemorations that the cost was estimated at over eight. Hundred thousand sister. She's so that's the gist. According to the story virgil and his close friends spend huge amounts of money and effort to celebrate the life in memory of an insect concluding with the insects burial in a marble tomb. Why on earth would this be. Well the legend itself also contains an answer to this so to read from pendle again quote but the reason for the funeral was not due to extravagance interest or even emotion. Having defeated julius. Caesar's assassins at the battle of philip pie. The second triumvirate was at that very moment. Engaged in confiscating the states of the rich and dividing them among the war veterans returning from the battlefield only one exception was given if the estate held a burial plot. It was not to be touched by burying his housefly. Virgil saved his house.
Italian 1982 World Cup hero Paolo Rossi dies aged 64
"Italy continues to mourn. The passing of footballing legend paolo rossi nineteen hundred eighty. Two world. cup hero passed away this week. At the age of sixty four they see some of the headlines sports summing it up simply for always craig still with so shocked. But we'll get his thoughts and just you were telling me nineteen eighty two really your first world cup experience a fan at least ten or eleven year old just watching and seeing all these great players. I'd never seen because we didn't get the pictures by them was holiday any soccer on tv particularly from from other countries in europe. But the game i remember was was rossi scoring a hat trick in this game here against a fantastic brazil side in a knockout stages and the game was three two. It was a terrific game. The socrates zico in deir in junior. And of course great italians say and polaroid was just a belief from had a three year bonds for a much fixing scandal that was reduced to two years so ends will basil. Could pick them so. It can fly italian team. And i just remember him as this great portrait of goals. Of course the final daily the great when when he's running away given all out. That was the foster world cup. That i really remember. I remember watching that game in particular brazil vs italy because it was so many great players on the field and of course pro rossy got hot track to knock out that brazilian team Rossi won the golden boot the golden ball and the tournament. Yeah not a bad. Summer's work there Shock you always say that nineteen seventy eight was your first world cup but you obviously would have been paying attention in eighty two. What do you remember about rossi listeners. As coming from it's almost by default to you adopt brazil as the national team that you follow for the international competitions so from a brazil perspective heartbreak seventeenth specially with argentina. Gone on to win it. And then that eighty two team and how talented. It was still referred to as the best team to have not won the world cup or the expectation around brazil going into that tournament. Even all the pre-game expectations brazil against italy. How how one sided was going to be and then upsets paolo rossi on his hat trick. That craig mentioned for me also. It was kind of my my first exposure to that kind of strike on in the six yard box kind of striker as instinctive as clinical as he was on how the ball always seem to find players. Like like paolo rossi. That was an education for me as as a young fan despite the disappointment around brazil. An unexperienced that. I will never forget the very least a performance on an individual that i will never forget of course a hat trick in the match against brazil couple of goals in the semi final against poland. And then the opener in the final against west germany. There you see. Many career accomplishments paolo. Rossi passed away earlier this week. At the age of sixty four.
What is The Allegory Of The Cave?
"Is stephanie. And this is talk tales and trivia the show where i talk about society culture pop culture and i throw in a little bit of trivia too so that you can stump your family and friends. It is so much fun listen here. I am mad researcher. When it comes to all those topics i research and the trivia that i give you because i want you to be enlightened and have trivia so that you can stump your family and friends and look really really cool while doing it so that is my goal and i love doing it for you if you are a first time listener here at talk tales and trivia. Thank you so much for tuning in. And i welcome you and i hope that you enjoy this episode. Sit back relax. Listen and enjoy as i tell you the allegory of the cave but first let's discuss something. What is an allegory. Well i know that you know you're smart. You're probably the smartest people. I know. But i just wanted to do this because i had to look it up to make sure i was right. It is a tale that has a moral of the story ending a tale that symbolizes something or has a deeper meaning than just the story itself. It represents something that is different than the story itself and that is exactly what this is all about well. The allegory of the cave was written by plato and the nine hundred ninety nine movie matrix. The question is asked what is real. Unfortunately no one can be told. What the matrix is you have to see it for yourself. I have a real example. An allegory written by the greek philosopher. Plato plato lived from around four hundred and twenty three b c to around three hundred and forty eight bc. He believed learning. Philosophy is to make you live and die well in other words. Therapy for the soul is philosophy without further ado here. I go with the allegory of the cave by plato. Plato wrote it to show the effect of education or the lack of it. The allegory was part of his book. Republic the story goes like this. The cave has prisoners. That have always lived there away from the outside world. There is no natural light and the walls are damp and dark anything. These prisoners can see comes from the shadows of things thrown up on a wall by the light of the fire. The cave prisoners get fascinated by these reflections of animals plants. People and other objects they assume these shadows are real. And if you understand them you will excel and exceed in life. That is what they believe. One day one of the cave prisoners is freed and realize when released from the shackles and the cave that these objects are real and not just mere shadows put up on the wall on the outside world away from the cave. He sees color and beautiful animals. Flowers trees stars people freely going about their business. He sees a son and all the other objects at makeup disclosure world. We live in the freed cave prisoner saw with his own eyes. What was reality. And it wasn't the shadows in the cave. This indeed made him very excited previously. He had been looking merely at phantoms images really now. He is nearer to the true nature of being. The freight prisoner wants to share what he has discovered with the remaining slaves. That are still in the darkness of the cave as he goes into the cave. The darkness is too much and he has a difficult time seeing. He stumbles about an almost appears blind. He then tells the remaining prisoners. What was outside of the cave. The sun the beauty the color etc etc. He tells them all the things that he saw and how wonderful it all was but the prisoners don't believe him and get very angry at the freedman and plot to kill him. They tell him he's crazy and violently resist while he tries to free them. The prisoners don't want to be told they don't know the truth but why it's human nature to believe what we have always believed no doubt from influences from our youth and the influences. When we're in vulnerable situations and the cave signifies ignorance. The prisoners are representing humans before philosophy before reasoning. The sun is the light of reason and the alienated of the returning prisoner. Is what all truth. Tellers can expect when taking the knowledge back to nonbelievers or the unenlightened. Those that have not devoted themselves to thinking investigating and becoming more knowledgeable. There are prisoners or unenlightened. People in our world right now. That perhaps don't want to know the truth. That is right in front of them. Plato believes we're all perhaps in the shadows for most of our lives and these shadows are in fact only images projected by our society and culture playing on the walls of our fragile and flawed mines. Individually it's not our fault no one chooses to be in the cave but that's just where we happen to begin. We are all starting from a very difficult place. But here's the thing. If you bluntly tell people they are wrong you get nowhere causing deep offense and you may cause danger to your own life right from the majestic therapy website. There's this plato's analogy plato. Introduces this passage as an analogy of what it is like to be a philosopher trying to educate society people are comfortable and their ignorance and hostile to anyone who tries to free them from it. The prisoners plotted and killed the one who escaped and went back to help them. Just like the athenians sentence. Socrates to death for trying to enlighten them. This is an allegory of the life of an enlightened and wise people who get rejected by ignorance when they tried to enlighten others for plato. Most of us live like the prisoners in the cave. The masses are stubborn and ignorant and dedicate their lives to pursue shadows images instead of the real thing. The shadows can be interpreted as status or wealth among other things as opposed to wisdom and knowledge. So what then is a solution to this problem to prevent this try. Very socratic method. Well again from the majestic therapy website. There's this the socratic method. It is not our fault to be in the caves. We all begin their the system makes sure of that from an early age. We take everything. The environment teachers parents say to us as absolute when we have questions too complicated for adults to answer. They encourage us to stop asking questions therefore killing our curiosity. You know it's true and it is because everyone believes that we are all genuine and true people. We are taken in by that thought at a young age for some philosophers. Ignorance is a sin and plato wanted to eradicate ignorance. But you can't just go around telling people they are wrong. Like in plano story. They will get offended and probably become very hostile toward you. So you don't want that for plato. The solution to this problem was to educate society carefully and philosophically. He thought the best way to do. This was a socratic method. This is a very subtle process. You don't force people to think read some books or lecture them on any particular topic you educate people without them realizing it. Plato believed that people could detect the errors in their reasoning with a little bit of help. You just need to give them a small clue a push if you will so. They realize where they are wrong. You can't teach anyone anything by making them feel stupid. Remember that according to plato. We all start in the same cave but we have a way out and that is through philosophy. The socratic method is a form of cooperative argumentative dialogue between individuals based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking and to draw out ideas and underlying beliefs. It's kinda like a mastermind. It's a very calming and gentle process with the socratic method. The teacher does not aim to force knowledge to the students. He acts as a mediator while having a dialogue with the objective that the student thanks for themselves. While the teacher facilitates the discussion.
UN Libya envoy reports on significant achievements towards peace
"This is matt well as you're news. Following a decade of political instability and conflict libyans are on the path to peace and the international community needs to do its part which includes respecting an arms embargo. Top official there said in an exclusive interview with our un news. Aerobic team stephanie. Williams acting special representative of the secretary general commended. The first round of political talks between the government of national accord in libyan national army held last week and she initiate ms williams spoke to my yakub about ongoing developments in libya. Since the signing of historic ceasefire agreed last month under the auspices of the un mission in the country. Un's mil which she had. A ceasefire agreement itself was really greeted of rate of ause across the via. Withings were so relieved to see more officers. Come together with very great sense of national responsibility and to reach across the table. Shake hands and really for the sake of libya start to take steps to To unify institutions to ease the conditions for average le'veon's and to really pave the way for the resumption of the political process. You have just concluded the first first-round of critical dialogue forum. Are you happy with the results. In how are the preparation for the second round going preparations for the second round or underway. I am very pleased with what happened here in tunis. Last week seventy five participants came the sach talk for some of them really the first time that they have come together since the revolutions twenty eleven over these long years of crisis and division and they to gingrich national responsibility an desire for reconciliation and desire to put the country on the right on the libyan to restore rabin decision making in socrates. They're very intensive day. They accomplished a lot. They decided that national elections should be held on december fourth. Twenty twenty one which marks seventieth anniversary of libya's independence. So what better day. For libyan's to come together to renew their institutions through credible inclusive and fair elections. They also agreed a national roadmap for a preparatory period leading up to elections they renamed. The perogatives are reformed presidency council and a separate premiership in unity government in. They also agreed the eligibility criteria for candidates to these positions. I am really pleased to say that of the seventy five participants. The women's participants really stood out. They came together as a block fairly early on in the process started working on a statement issued outline really a series of principles recommendation. She improving women's participation in the political process and governance. They demanded that remains should account for no west thirty percent of the leadership positions in the recently formed executive authority and that was also echoed in the roadmap which was consensually agreed by having participants. On the last day miss williams. You just mentioned the election. What will will on smell. In how how would smell facilitated so are we support of the higher national elections commission. Which is the national sovereign body in libya that is charged with organizing elections.

Stir women candidates to office. And those who will no doubt be running. In the parliaments
How To Achieve Excellence Through Exercise
"Through exercise. To be stoic with a capital S. We need to do more than just read think and talk about it. We must have a stoic practice. The practice allows us to put the principles skills and systems of stoic thought into action. The practice allows us to measure our progress to get better on purpose and progress is important the word Prokop done means with someone making progress in their study and practice of stoicism and I suggest that one of the best ways to start making progress as a stoic month and I say, On that path to being a more excellent human being it's with daily exercise and physical conditioning. The goal of stoicism is generally understood to be live in a chord with nature. This includes one's individual nature and that of the world. By living in a chord with nature will experience eudaimonia a smoothly flowing life or happiness. David suddenly have Rutledge Encyclopedia of philosophy said what matters is not necessarily achieving natural advantages like Health which cannot be guaranteed an awful circumstances and which in any case do not bring happiness. What matters is making the right rational choices doing everything that lies in your power toward achieving what nature recommends it is the consistency of those efforts not of their results that may ultimately become perfect agreement with nature that is happiness and the quote. To help us in our practice. We are given some direction. For example, we have the four virtues of stoicism. We have wisdom Justice courage and the one that I focus on self-control, then we have the three disciplines which Epictetus introduced we have the discipline of Desire the discipline of action off the discipline of assent. Now the storks also suggest that virtue or Excellence of character alone is sufficient for happiness. So which of the four virtues should we practice all of them all at once or in succession? Can we be just but uncivilized is that virtuous? Maybe we are a courageous but lack self-control that show progress Socrates had a thesis called the unity of Virtues off some early stoics adopted this as well. They are Genies. Alicia's said they hold that the virtues involved one another and that the possessor of one is the possessor of all in as much as they have common principles end quote. So this simplifies the matter by focusing our efforts on only one of the four canonical virtues will make progress in all of them of the three disciplines. Appetitos teachers the one to start with and the most important to get a handle on first is the discipline of Desire with its clarifying dicot out of control. The dichotomy of control is such an important lesson that Aryan Epictetus is pupil responsible for capturing the lectures for posterity put it first in the enchiridion the very first line some things are within our power While others are not reading further in the in Caribbean Dead learn. What's in our power in short. The only thing in our power is how we choose to think. As we keep reading we learn what's beyond our power. Bottom line everything else. Our body property reputation is very direct simple. Maybe a hard pill to swallow. Yeah, there it is. So we've got our goal live in accord with nature by being the most virtuous person. We can be off to go ahead to focus on one of the four virtues in our case. It's self control due to its relationship to the next aspect which is the discipline of desire which brings
"socrates" Discussed on Chai with Pai
"Yeah because everyone has a different now. So online lake. I mean SORTA why. All of these things I'm saying I'm going to be of the same things and that's the beauty right? Like like you have all these philosophers were saying things they. Okay, you. Okay. This is wrong. That is wrong but. I feel like they know what is right and wrong because they have been that dot place themselves and like and and they're not perfect now. But then at least like they know how to reduce it or like I duNNo, I duNno, explain it. But say if socrates talks about questioning yourself that he must have been at a point in his life where he did not question himself and died like. Affected him probably and like not not that he's He was affected that program. You would probably not question himself fully, but he still means that the message in boughten so that head someone is and I guess that is the point of philosophies that using the knowledge of. Georgiana experiences and saying does someone like in the hopes that might have someone someday. So I. Feel you roll this the. Does this Guy example of Peter? Parker. Being Lake acting. NARDA responsible and lead into the death of Uncle Ben. And from that, he loves philosophy so. He makes. Mistakes. Which leads store debt of a close relative of his family and then. Realizes and then Dobbs that morality that would create comes great responsibility. So i. feel that way because. I mean. We all make mistakes and then learn on a long-term trauma. Yeah and like making mistakes never never a bad thing because it's they. Always. Lord date until you don't learn, you're GONNA, repeat the same mistake, and that's important because you need to learn some things. No one is perfect. And which is why? We need to learn from those who are better than US I. Guess. So. I mean thank you for teaching all your look like. For teaching so much. I learned so much alike I didn't even know half of these things. Like I mean more party human I really hope that like. You'll find you'll find like more success in like doing in reviewing movies and incorporating designs into those various things and like actually I actually I think you can combine film and design and I feel like. Doing borders giving you a very, very, very strong foundation. I like I'm really excited for the next review to draw on it on your thing. Like. I had next time I. Need a movie to watch. I'm definitely going to like ask your leave because soon. And thank you actually taking taking time out of your day to do this because like I know all of us are very, very busy nowadays. Whenever. There's a podcast episode and he warned me as a guest I'll be. I dated an idol I looks always be available. Just. In case you want to about cost. If you want to. On foods.

Pico in Lockdown
"Start by checking in with friend of the show author Pico to hear how he's faring during this pandemic summer Pico was raised in England in southern California by parents who were both philosophers and religious scholars we caught up with him in Santa Barbara Pico welcome back travel with Rick Steves Real Delight. It's always. Highlight, to talk to you. Thank you know people used your life between California and Japan tell us how you are dealing with this crisis. Well I spent the first half of the pandemic in Japan and I'm almost embarrassed to say that things are quite beautiful and the sense that things look very much the same as normal as you know from your many trips, the people wear masks much of the time in. Japan anyway literally and figuratively to protect others. If you were in a bus in Japan in November, usually, there'll be forty percents of the people wearing masks. So that part was not different and as you also know, Japan has managed to avoid the west of the virus. So even in the middle of April I was playing Ping Pong every day with my neighbors eight year old men were diving across the hard floor of the wooden Jim to hit back at forehands and really looking around everything seems same as usual except, of course, no foreign tourists. And I think the other thing about Japan which is one reason I moved. There is as you know, they're very STOIC uncomplaining and resilient, and so they've been dealing with challenges for fourteen hundred years there, and they don't see these kind of crises is shocked sore in the south. So aberrations they think of them almost as the way life always is they used to earthquakes some Salamis forest five. So in that way to it was quite a complex to be. and. Then I flew back in the middle of the pandemic to Santa Barbara where I am now because my mother who's now eighty nine just come out of the hospital and I knew I had to have and California did look very different from usual but in certain ways, people seem thoughtful and focused and reflective kind and. In some ways. Conversations I had with people here on the telephone if I in is in the supermarket with Michio the they might be otherwise I'm lucky again in both places because I'm in. The small town of not as affected as big cities and. Towns of privileged. So everybody was most concerned about those without a roof over the heads with family nearby jobs I had a pretty lucky I. Think you know, Pico, you mentioned in Japan people are to wearing masks both literally and figuratively and I cringed at that because I don't want to have a world where we wear literal masks I would want even less to have where we all have figurative masks and maybe we'll have more literal masks in our future. But what you're saying is when you got back to California, people might have been wearing masks but they were being a little more honest and open with each other's is that right? Yes. That is right. I'm I think in Japan the FIGURATIVE MOSQUES Seen as a form of social duty I think you know as you know, the Japanese define themselves by the the whole unit, the neighborhood or the country or the company, and they feel everybody around me is suffering, and so my job is to make people feel better. I don't want to inflict my own suffering on people who already going through a lot. I want to offer them what I can in the way of help Williamson. And support, and so actually I like that quality about Japan essentially positive and and also they're not rattled by things sometimes very small things will come along and and other places. I'll see people get very shocked and caught up in the fight of the moment and Japan has much more level suffix, which makes it in some ways a calm place you're right that they're not good at facing up to some of the DACA places. The, dogs spots in history. But as a win a sort of social lubricant, I think it makes for at least a cheerful atmosphere and it's sort of related to being considered socially. Exactly, it's. It's. It's. It's a matter of thinking about the other person before yourself and then recalling if remember in the Nami two, thousand eleven, eighteen, thousand, five, hundred people died and when people watch the footage on TV they were surprised the Japanese was so quiet uncomplaining and I think that's because even though one person that loves to people right here at the house, she knew that everybody around her had losses also and so she didn't want to compound that.

"So, if you're just tuning in just discovered us. We said hiring is broke in the year twenty twenty, so we started over with a blank sheet of paper. What does or what should hiring look like in the year two thousand twenty? And we call it the then hiring model v. e. n. like Van Diagrams. We've preaches an overlap between the hiring manager. The talend and US. The agency that's going to match the two parties alcohols that. Also sharing some business lessons from a book. I wrote a number of years ago. Called the purple curve effect. And there's a number of tenants in there to help you in life and in your business. And if you don't know H, the episode with an h means were focused or aim aiming this podcast at the hiring manager, so this might be of particular interest. Ten at number seven from my book and include Lincoln. The show notes. Ten a number seven. The synergy from the socratic method. Provides invaluable feedback that you might not otherwise get. Remember Synergy I defined as one plus one mighty, actually equal twenty seven. It's when. Two or more things come together in the power they generate is beyond just the sum of the parts. The. Socratic method is based on socrates from days gone by. or More recent if you're a big fan of bill and Ted's excellent adventure. But. Socrates asks questions. He didn't tell people he didn't teach by telling. He taught by questioning. Years ago I created a magazine called TLC. Review. In because Gold Ram one of my mentors. The late Dr L. E. Goal was such a big fan of the socratic method. I found perfect article on. Socratic method in this. This philosopher used. The socratic method to teach. I think was fourth or fifth graders. Binary math as he taught them by asking. So. We suggest in your business. Maybe you're not asking enough questions. If you're hiring manager and you're doing a lot of talking. Then you probably doing it wrong. You need to ask questions. You need to evaluate the answers. You need to conduct experiments. Many of us know of something called A. B. Testing. Typically, send out an email you send out one subject to. A percentage of the list you send out a different subject to. Another percentage, and you see which. Subject line draws the most reaction, and then you send the rest of the people in your list that particular subject well, that's actually a subset of something called the design of experiments. So. You're not experimenting. You probably should be

"socrates" Discussed on News-Talk 1400 The Patriot
"Socrates and everyone else in the western canon available at Hillsdale dot EDU Dr west as we run into the end of this just a brief introduction of Socrates why do you care so much about Athens this is really a larger way of asking why does anyone why does he even bother to teach what what is he what is he doing well yeah either it's about philosophy or science is it it doesn't it it doesn't in searing seem to be caring about anybody's life figuring out reality is coal and everything else board native to that and so it's hard to understand why would scientists care about his own country if the country itself is living in a delusion that K. if it you know subjected to the narrative and and properties something about that in that defense speech he gave when he was on trial for his life he said look you're closer to me in in kinship in fact I'm related to you I you know there's there's a level one zone that's a real human thing and nobody free of that and nobody should be free of that that's that's a right and a good thing but it's also true he cared about his city cared about the people in it because his way of life it could be perpetuated through that to some degree that's what he learned with the with the students I mean they were Athenians and you know there's there's something to be carried on in the tradition of philosophy that Plato did Aristotle a basement was schools there apple's became this the place that was friendly to science friendly is the science of the whole ancient world for a long time and L. R. N. Y. partly because of that he Socrates established that tradition of of of friendship between the the scientists philosophers and the the and the and the opinions or in other words of political life when it's well good when it's well done Ellery aren't I I think that the reason Hillsdale has skyrocketed in popularity among the young is that the young really want to do this they don't perhaps can articulate why they want to do this but they really do want to do this yeah well the younger you know today what they're told is there till two things in combination that are really bad for them one is there is anything objective to know and the other is usually get busy doing all the things that are projected on the screen by the people at the back of the cave and so kids grew up that way today right and they and their they they they make some shallow social media helps to do that well if you get a bunch of kids and they come they they they soon understand that the greatest compliment is been to being paid to them they're gonna have to work their tails off worse than anywhere on earth I fancy and hope and yet it'll be so good for them right and they will form friendships either through that labor that you know cuts across disciplines and and and you know so in other words it's it it appeals to their ambitions in the highest way and you know because in the end the highest ambition has got to be I want to be a fine human being and I need to know what that is and and you know I I will say Socrates proclaiming his ignorance that's the thing of which he's not ignorant and and that and that's why those young loved him they saw that they were walking hard road but the road was going up and the doctor went dark gray where would someone who is intrigued by this began yeah well I just wanna add to Larry's comment that spirit of friendship of genuine friendship but sensual to Socrates message not so not so much in word but in deed he kind of provides a model of rans examining things together trying to print understand what what the truth is in here Hillsdale college Emma during the shutdown that was one of the saddest thing to see is how disappointed in how frustrated the students were to lose their friendships suddenly be sent home and told you're not allowed to come back for more for the rest of the semester so that was a tough that was a that was the next interesting thing the very Socratic but it's also but yet you want you're asking where'd where'd you go to learn where do you start I would start with a bestselling translation done by me and my former why my wife is now passed on but call for text on Socrates contains four dialogues relatively short apologetic apology cardio you throw in Stoppani splay the clouds which also gives you an angle of Socrates you wouldn't expect much more skeptical of course and you hear you can think about what kind of a man he was kind of ideas he has for most for sources of the three dialogues Plato the Aristophanes I think that's a great way to think about being into think about this it's not real long you're not going to have to give up the month of your life but you know it and you can see that the thinking the kind that model of thinking the model conversation that we've been talking about you can see it at work in those places that is a superb suggestion it's not in my notes but I wrote it down for tax on Socrates by the west Thomas west.
Getting On The Right Level When Solving Problems Collaboratively
"Have you ever been accused of being too in the weeds to nitty gritty. Or maybe you've been accused of something kind of the opposite that your head is in the clouds. You're too so far zoomed out. You're thinking too abstractly in today's episode. We're going to talk about what causes this kind of problem in what you might be able to do in conversations to fix it. My name is Jonathan Cottrell. You're listening to developer. Team goal on the show is took driven developers like you. You find clarity. Perspective purpose in their careers developer t was initially built as a show. That focuses is on a very narrow subject for a short period. Today's episode will be an example of that or only going to have a few minutes. It's discussing this topic in necessarily we are discussing something at a zoomed in perspective. And we don't always cover every we single implication or detail kind of leave that as an exercise to the listener. If you want to dive deeper you can. But what's necessary to be able to do. This is choosing what level. We're going to talk about the subject. At what do we include and more importantly what do we leave out of course when we're putting out content As podcast and we can get to choose what level is appropriate for the podcast. And for what I want to talk about on the show but it's not necessarily so when you're in a work scenario when you're collaborating with other people when you're trying to solve a problem when you're trying to build a successful business the economics of the discussion the economics of your approach all of this deals with the level that you choose to solve and if you've experienced this you've probably experienced it at an interpersonal level in some kind of meeting leading scenario One on one meeting for example between an individual contributor and that person's manager developer and their manager and the managers trying to solve the team dynamics they want to understand. How do we create positive? Relationships between the team members numbers and the individual developer brings a specific solitary problem one issue that they have with with another developer and these are two different levels. The question being asked is how do we solve the relational issues that the team is facing thing but the answer. That's being provided is zoomed in on one specific instance of a problem. This specific civic. Instances of the problem may help us understand the larger picture that the manager is asking about and it certainly shouldn't be ignored. There's nothing wrong with this level of thinking but in the conversation that's being had perhaps the most functional thing that can happen is either. The manager chooses assist to address the specific problem. I with that individual which is probably a good first step by the way or the individual recognizes or. The manager tells the visual that. Hey you know what. We're trying to solve the problem. And one layer above and one layer abstracted from what you're talking about and this difference could even be quite minor. The difference between these layers is not necessarily substantial stansel but defining what layer. You're going to solve the problem at helps. Both sides focus on the problem at hand rather than then whatever. The relevant details are in the disparity between approaches. You've probably also experienced the opposite of this. Where the question being asked was at a higher layer and the answer given was at a lower layer where the question asked is at a lower layer and the answer given is at a higher layer this kind of Response often feels defeating To the person that's asking the question. Sometimes this is just a question question about tactically solving a problem and the answer Moves up to a process level for example this very common scenario in management. Now this doesn't mean once again that the thoughts about the process oriented approach are wrong very often. The conversation should eventually evolve to that point but for the person who has In this is my personality that tends to this as well for the person who tends to abstract act problems quickly to respond by abstracting to a level of assistance thinking rather than answering a tactical issue this can sometimes frustrate the people that are asking the question similarly to someone who is getting into the weeds. It's kind of the opposite problem But the same level of frustration can happen because it's a communications breakdown. So how can we fix this. Consider the idea of answering a question question being largely about understanding the question thoroughly to begin with you've probably heard the socrates quote understanding. A question is half an answer and this certainly applies in this scenario with someone engages in conversation with you especially when you are engaging engaging together to solve a particular problem to solve an issue on a team for example understanding the question understanding meaning the problem understanding the concern thoroughly is part of the solution. Don't approach these conversations as if the question is clear and obvious even if the question has been worded and reworded multiple times even if both sides believe they they have an intuitive understanding of the problem at hand the problem needs to be defined and redefined signed and explored together this is part of the collaborative process when providing feedback. Do it in a conversational way. Day that is always also looking for more feedback about the feedback right so in this scenario where you're starting to get into the weeds. Make sure you're answering in a way. That is aware of the fact that you may be answering on different levels. Ask The question of. Is this too in the weeds or do we need to talk about something more abstractly. If both sides of the conversation are aware the people tend to answer questions at different levels than frustration can be replaced by communication and getting at the right right level. Is One step getting the right answer.
A new story from Here & Now
"Reuters reporters for free today and reunited with their families after more than five hundred days in jail in Myanmar while loan and Chaucer woo convicted of violating the country's official secrets act in their coverage of the military's crackdown on the Muslim group through Hinduja. Something observers called ethnic cleansing in April. While the two were still in prison. They were awarded the Pulitzer prize for international reporting for their work today while loan thanked their supporters inside in the prison and also on the wall. I wanted to say thank you very much. I'm really happy to see my family, and I can't wait through school. Mayan us, right? I can't wait to go back to my newsroom joining us. Now, the BBC's Nick beak he's in Yangon Myanmar. And Nick you were there. They were mobbed by fellow reporters outside the jail, they will Robin. And I mean, these reporters who were well loved by the journalistic community here in Yan gone loss of reporters and photographers people in the journalistic crowd hair in me on mall. They saw this as an attack on the whole community. Really? And I think it had a chilling effect. Because also people thought that they could have ended up in a prison cell if they were telling the truth trying to do the right thing as they saw it. Well, this reminds what happened here because just last month a Myanmar's supreme court rejected their appeal. So what changed? Well, it's it's really haunts us to say what change, but it does seem that own sense Suci the. Effective leader of Myanmar. She's made a decision that there's been enough international condemnation here, and she and her mind is decided that these men should be freed as you say. There was a long legal process. They had a I appeal which was rejected a second appeal, which was then rejected and what we've seen today is an amnesty. And basically this is all to do with the Burmese new year often, you get political prisoners released as a good will gesture this has been a pretty unprecedented third wave of releases. So we are waiting for the last couple of weeks to see if they be set free and today, they have in jubilation for their friends and family and outside court where we were just a few hours ago chaotic, but also really happy scenes as they will return to their colleagues and family, well, and you spoke to alone, and he told you he never will stop being a journalist. But we wondering now how can they possibly the pressure on them as they work? Now seems to be pretty. Credible. Were this is I mean, these guys who came up with this investigation, which was really forensic and it St. tail they won as you say the Pulitzer prize for their efforts, they basically forced apology from the ministry if not an apology on admission of guilt that soldiers murdered ten Ranji men in Rakhine state in late twenty seventeen. Now the army he just does not come forward to say. Hey, look, we committed these crimes so that journalists that were was watertight nonetheless, they were charged under this British colonial-era act of the official secrets act. They was sentenced for seven years in prison. And so two prison. They went until today when they were released.
"socrates" Discussed on Boring Books for Bedtime
"Men. The two brothers as Socrates to prove to them that the just is happy when they have taken from him all that in which happiness is ordinarily supposed to consist, not that there is any absurdity in the attempt to frame, a notion of Justice apart from circumstances for the ideal must always be a paradox when compared with the ordinary conditions of human life. Neither the stoical ideal nor the Christian ideal is true as a fact, but they may serve as a basis of education, and may exercise and noble in influence. An ideal is none, the worse, because someone has made the discovery that no such ideal was ever realized and in a few excel. Optional individuals who are raised above the ordinary level of humanity. The ideal of happiness may be realized in death and misery this may be the state, which the reason deliberately approves at which the utilitarian as well as every other moralist may be bound in certain cases to prefer nor again, must be forget that Plato, though he agrees generally with the few implied in the argument of the two brothers is not expressing his own final conclusion, but rather seeking to dramatize one of the aspects of ethical truth. He is developing his idea cringely in a series of positions or situations. He is exhibiting Socrates for the first time undergoing, the Socratic interrogation. Lastly, the word happiness, involves some degree of confusion, because societas in the language of modern philosophy with conscious pleasure or satisfaction, which was not equally present to his mind. Clough has been drawing the picture of the misery of the chest, and the happiness of the unjust to which the misery of the tyrant in book nine is the answer, and parallel, and still the undressed must appear just that is the Amish, which vice pays to for two but now adamant is taking up the hint, which had already been given my Glock and proceeds to show that in the opinion of mankind. Justice is rewarded only for the sake of rewards and reputation and points out the advantage, which is given to such arguments as those of throws amok, is, and go out can by the conventional morality of mankind. He seems to feel the difficulty of justifying the ways of God to man both the brothers touch upon. The question why that the morality of actions is determined by their consequences, and both of them go beyond the position of Socrates. Critise that Justice belongs to the class of God's not desirable for themselves only, but desirable for themselves and for their results to which he recalls them in their attempt of you Justice, as an internal principle, and in their condemnation of the poets. They anticipate him. The common. Life of Greece is not enough for them. They must penetrate deeper into the nature of things. It has been objected. The Justice is honesty in the sense of cloud, come and Atta mantis, but his taken by Socrates to main all virtue, may, we not more truly say that the old fashioned notion of Justice is enlarged by Socrates and becomes a quivalent to universal order or well being I in the state and Secondly in the individual he is found a new answer to his old question. Whether the virtues are one or many this that one is the ordering principle of the three others in seeking to establish the purely internal nature of Justice. He is met by the fact that man is a social being at he tries to harmonize the two opposite these as well as he can. There is no more inconsistency in this. That was an edible in his age and country. There is no. No use in turning upon him the cross lights of modern philosophy which from some other point of view would appear equally inconsistent Plato does not give the final solution, philosophical questions for us, nor can he be charged up by our standard. The remainder of the Republic is developed out of the question of the sons of Aristotle, three points are deserving of remark in what immediately follows I that the answer of Socrates is altogether indirect. He does not say that happiness consists in the contemplation of the idea of Justice and still less. Will he be tempted to affirm? The stoical paradox that the just man can be happy on the rack. But first, he dwells on the difficulty of the problem and insists on restoring manned his natural condition before he will answer the question at all. He to frame an ideal, but his ideal comprehends not only abstract Justice, but the whole relations of man under the fanciful illustration of the large letters, he implies that he will only look for Justice in society. And that from the state, he will proceed to the individual his answer in substance amounts to this, that under favorable conditions I in the perfect state, Justice and happiness will coincide and that when Justice has been once found happiness may be left to take care of itself that he falls into some degree of inconsistency. When in the tenth book, he claims to have got rid of the rewards and honors of Justice may be admitted for he has left those which exist in the perfect state, and the philosopher, who retires under the shelter of a wall can hardly have been esteemed. Happy by him, at least not in this world. Still, he maintains the true attitude of moral action. Let a man do his duty first without asking whether he will be happy or not, and happiness, will be the inseparable accident, which attends him Seekie. I the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto. You. Secondly, it may be remarked that Plato preserve genuine character of Greek fought in beginning with the state and in going onto the individual I ethics. Then politics, this is the order of ideas to us, the reverse is the owner of history. Only after many struggles of thought, does the individual assert his right. As a moral being in early ages, he is not one, but one of many the citizen of state, which is prior to him, and he has no notion of good or evil apart from the law of his country or the creed of his church and to this time he is constantly tending to revert whenever the influence of custom, or of party spirit, or the recollection of the past becomes too strong for him. Thirdly, we may observe, the confusion or identification, the individual and the state of ethics and politics, which pervades early Greek speculation. And even in modern times retains a certain degree of influence, the subtle difference between the collective and individual action of mankind seems to have escaped early thing cars, and we, too are sometimes in danger of forgetting the conditions of United human action, whenever we either elevate politics into ethics, or lower ethics to the standard of politics. The good man and the good citizen only coincide in the perfect state, and this perfection cannot be attained by legislation acting upon them from without. But if at all by education, fashioning them from within. Socrates praises the sons of Ariston, inspired offspring of the renowned hero as the eligible, poet terms them, but he does not understand how they can argue so eloquently on behalf of injustice, while their character shows that they are uninfluenced by their own arguments. He knows not how to answer them. Although he's afraid of deserting Justice in the hour of need. He there for makes a condition that having week is he shall be allowed to read the large letters first, and then go onto the smaller that is he must look for Justice in the state. I and then proceed to the individual accordingly he begins to construct the state. Society. Arises out of the wants of man his, I want is food, his second a house. His third a coat the sense of these needs and the possibility of satisfying them by exchange draw individuals together on the same spot. And this is the beginning of state, which we take the liberty to invent off on this acidy is the real inventor. There must be I husband, Secondly builder Thirdly, a Weaver to which may be added a cobbler four or five citizens at least are required to make a city. Now men have different natures and one man will do one thing, better than many and business waits for no, man. Hence there must be a division of labor into different employments into wholesale and retail trade into workers and makers of workmen's tools into shepherds and hussmann a city, which includes all this will have far exceeded the limit of four or five and yet not be very large. But then, again, it ports will be required and imports necessitate exports. And this implies for Rieter of produce in order to attract the taste of purchasers also merchants and ships in the city to we must have a market and money and retail trades. Otherwise buyers and sellers will never meet and the valuable time of the producers will be wasted in vain efforts. Exchange if we had hired servants the state will be complained. And we may guess that somewhere in the intercourse of the citizens with one another Justice and injustice will appear.

Now, I really sat down with Peter chic off and Lloyd out list. Who are the guys who do the epic rap battles history videos YouTube to get like four billion us fourteen million subscribers series of spinning in NAFTA successful and just about two years ago. They took a break they've had it. And now they're arrested in the comeback with a new video that features Alon must taking on Mark Zuckerberg. I'd like to invite you to listen to more of our conversation. We ran the initial part yesterday. This is more of the extended chat talking about their favorite characters. How they got started and their cake on that seven year old kid who's making twenty two million dollars a year on YouTube, a have a listen to nice, Peter and epic Lloyd from the epic rap battles. To both of you have favorites that you've done over the years. Yeah. Who? I my favorite is an old one from season one. It's no Polian. Dynamite versus Napoleon Bonaparte. It's just it's memories for me. Because I think it's both of us that are strengths sort of Pete as like a more sort of nerdy settled character. Yeah. And I'm like, this giant French guy, and the beat was made by very old friend of ours who sort of very nostalgic of both Peten is this guy named Eddie from Milwaukee. I love his name is Eddy, I've beat so get a guy named Eddie. So that's my favorite. My favorite's the philosophers, we did eastern philosophers versus western philosophers. So it was Nietzsche's Socrates Voltaire versus sunsuits lot suit and Confucius, and we we decided that battle. There's a website that was made by some fans that has a little chat room minute. And I was in there one day just talking to them about suggestions. And we kinda came up with that together. And then we all sat down and tried to write it, and it was. Really hard. It was a, but we got there, and we had squabbling in between philosophers in their style. And they started fighting amongst themselves loss I do. And I liked the way it turned out a lot. So that's my favorite told everybody how you guys get started doing this. This is five years ago. Twenty ten is when we did the first battle. A Pete, and I met in nineteen ninety nine something like that we met in Chicago, we actually met freestyle rapping on a porch at a party amongst improvisers. Loyd was big in the imprompt community. I was nude the umbrella community in Chicago. And then Lloyd actually hired me Lloyd end his partners hired me and to do improv improv. I call it mission improbable, and we have a theater in Santa Monica called west side comedy. And at the time. It was just a touring improv group sorta like whose line is it anyway on the road, and we were expanding and bringing bringing on new towns people and people, and I just sort of clicked right away. And then we tore together for a couple years, and we do like, improv comedy shows like Iowa State community college at noon, and then the next day would be like Michigan state at ten to twenty five hundred people. So is this crazy experience, and we always kind of little songs and wrapped together here and there, and then yeah, it was made our way out to California. And I got my first. You remember the Emek? American emek. Not the I MAC, computer. Correct by maybe. Yes. Okay. So had I got an Email back, and I got a little pro tools inbox. And I was just starting to learn pro tools. Loyd had rap songs. I was working on acoustic songs, but Loyd had written these rap songs, and he had these beats by this guy named Eddie that that Milwaukee. Yeah. And we basically learn how to cord rap songs together. So we were in my apartment in Chicago in the closet. Loyd was in a vocal booth. And I was just like learning as we went. So he brought the music and the wraps. I brought the Emek and we figured it out. And that was also when we started learning how to edit together because mission improbable needed a new trailer. And I remember I got paid with the hard drive, and it was like a seventy two gig seventy two gig. I really needed pay. All edit this video for you guys can keep hard-drive afterwards. And I did. And I think I still have that hard drive. I wonder if anything's on it. So that that's how are. Partnership started. And then you made a video we made a video, but this was pre YouTube. This was all kinds of stuff. And then, you know, we we stayed in touch and stayed friends would move to LA state and Chicago, and then I came out LA to perform his theater and his wife's university LMU. Yeah. And then she owns a she owns it. Yeah. Octagon? Mrs loyola. She was a good activties director. So she put me essentially, and then I was writing sketches and music for different internet companies not doing that. Well, and Louis got an Email of people looking for talent to write and do stuff, and he recommended me. And I dish ind ended up being this YouTube company that I got a job at called maker studios and that ended up being the start of the YouTube revolution. And I was there. So you made it video with maker impulsive. I made all I made I wrote songs for makers while I was brought on as a songwriter. And then I was encouraged to develop series and stuff and experiment on my own and Lloyd came over and had this idea from a stage show where you take two celebrities, and they wrap out all I was like that would make a really good video. Let's do it. And so I used all my resource days at maker. We got a camera person and editor and a green screen, and we made this rap battle between John Lennon and Bill O'Reilly and it did. Okay. Yeah. It did. Okay. Enough to do a second one, which was Darth Vader vs Adolf Hitler. And that one did great. And so that in two thousand eleven it was like, okay. I think this is what we're going to do we've been trying to figure out. I was trying to figure out what it was going to do since nineteen ninety four and all sudden two thousand eleven figured it out. And so there went videos every day you work on videos every day. Correct. Shoot him every day. Everything branched off from there when you have a YouTube show. That's that big for me. You know, there was it was was sort of the flagship show, but it was able to bleed into other things we made a behind the scenes channel Pete had his own channel. He had a Monday show, and he had, you know, different videos. I had a little different series and everything would sort of trickled down from that main battle. So what started out as one battle a month turned into one battle with the BTS video maybe twos. Sometimes another show on my little side channel and p do Monday show, maybe a picture song. And and it rapidly got expanded sort of horizontally, and and this are sort of ascension that word. Yeah. Are essentially kind of happened at the same time that YouTube exploded with popularity as well. So it wasn't like there was a couple of generations of other YouTubers before us that had done a lot of stuff when we could like look at them as a model. It was all sort of very new to us, which I think is why we got so tired. After six years of it. We weren't sick of it. We were just exhausted because it sort of blew up so fast. And then and then there was no there was no model for it. Really? So how do we feel being back? Good. Yeah. Yeah. We have a totally different approach to it live healthier as far as you know, not wasting much time working more efficiently. We're able to hire our own team. So they report directly to us the world's working with people that we work really well with and just trying to be more efficient more effective pace ourselves a little bit. I don't make eight to fifteen videos a month any more. So I just focused on making the battle one battle of on. I think that's what we're looking at. Yeah. When we when we start up in the spring, and I think that's what we're going to. That's our goal is really good to, you know, there was a multitude of different things that we had to learn how to do when when we first became successful in twenty ten and. A lot of them were more complex than just making a video. A lot of them was like, how do you? How do you an iphone? How to Pete knife function sort of managed people, and how do we manage within a system? And how do we like, you know, communicate well and inspire other people that work for us, and that was all kind of new for us in that capacity. So taking a break and stepping away from it. And then coming back with like some fresh eyes has been I feel really excited about it. That's where I'm at. Yeah. The tech stuff is kind of. Crept up in quality to it's it's a little easier work. We're on all Dobie software now, and it's just it's a nice workflow things work efficiently. We know how to use things. Computers are faster you're talking to premier and after. Yeah. And and back in the day, we were Switzerland between final cut and after sometimes for some stuff and sending it here sending it back. Now, we have a pretty nice little tight workflow. We got a bunch of computers, and you know, how to use them when doing battles. Loyd. You have podcast a podcast. I do on Wednesdays at noon called kings of influence, which is really cool. The comedy theater is the place where is the comedy club Dione, and I'll perform there, and you know, teach teach there, and I I hang out with my wife and my dog and the cat, and yeah, stay very busy. And when you're not battling. Yeah. I don't do much. You you raising your daughter the family thing. That's okay. It's nice for me. But even that like, I pretty much just sit with her and talk with her. I try not to leave the house if I don't have to particularly on a day when it's raining, so unusual. We're talking in LA today where it's actually boring. It's like two days a year that. Yeah. And we forget what it's like, it's good. I see I got into gardening to getting into all kinds of domestic hobbies. So I like the ring let me ask you this. Forbes just came out with their annual list of the highest paid YouTube performers people always love reading this thing. Everyone performer is seven years old. Ryan toys review. Right. He's got within everyone channels can bring in twenty two million dollars in two thousand eighteen seven years old seven years old mom's pocketing money, but if it's a safer as college, right? I mean, how many times do you? Do you have to go to college? So tell tell us is being a youtuber in two thousand eighteen really that lucrative. No. I mean, it can be. But I mean, we we make Tim vehicles a year that are that cost quite a bit to make. And they they're not twi- commercials. Not yet anyway until we hook ups and toy commercials. It can be you know, there's there's definitely money there. And we we started making videos just as YouTube was turning on monetization. So we really ridden up and then down during the ad Pakalitha era of YouTube where advertisers were fleeing like crazy. And now, it's kind of stabilizing. It's just like anything. There's you know, there's one or two basketball players who make that much. Right. And then there's a lot of people who play basketball don't. And I think you tubes about the same way. Can you? If you're you were there at the beginning. But just people are listening now and say, hey, I. I put up my videos on YouTube. But I, you know, I I have a theater, and I could do a live show Chemi kid is it too late. No, I think that everybody there. I don't think that that platform has changed so much that the basic tenants of hard work have gone away. If you work hard and do good work, and I think YouTube is is skewing towards a consistency a consistent amount of work that is on a consistent basis. There's definitely a whole equipped. He was saying like a whole blue-collar class of entertainers on YouTube digital entertainers that. Yeah, you're not making twenty two million dollars a year, but you can make a living, and there's every reason to feel encouraged to do that. But the whole like Goldstrike type thing people ask us a lot of times. Like, how do you make a viral video? And that's like asking how to find a grain of sand on the desert. You know, it's it's the there's a million different ways to do it. I think you have to do good work and you have to do it consistently. And I think there's. A lot of people out there who are ready to do that you see a lot of people reading the news and just jumping and during your chase Vons. Right. Stop really how it works. Right. It's like you decide to do like like, I mentioned, you know, I started doing this in in the early nineties. I didn't make any money on it until the late two thousand tens. It's just a matter of of believing in what you wanna do obviously still possible since that young man wasn't even alive when YouTube turned on monetization. So it's still possible. You know, it's a massive massive platform. You know, I think kids kids videos are doing very well. I have a niece of nieces, but I was watching YouTube with my one niece, and she just watched the same toy video nineteen times in the same afternoon, which is probably. I'm Jefferson Graham with USA day listening to talking tech, please subscribe to talking tech on apple podcasts. Please favorite show on Stitcher, which helps more people find the show in his always.
