"Then this is not the kind for which we are seeking having a ws military and philosophical for a man of war must learn the art of number or he will not know how to raise troops and the philosopher also because he has to rise out of the sea of change and lay hold true being and therefore he must be in there with magician. The republic is an ideal state because it is best and therefore what a state should be but it is also ideal in the sense that it does not and cannot concrete exist the ideal state the ideal state is itself a form to be participated in approximated imitated but never consonant with the becoming that is the experienced. The republic is not in any way limited by a particular circumstances of human experience. Just as in. European conception the philosophic and ethical progressiveness of the christ image lies in his presentation of a model of moral perfection to be imitated but never reached study published represents the perfect order towards west european state must continually advance as idea as normative motto. It is not simply modeled after the good it is the embodiment of the good. The problem is in the youth fro the apology and the credo created by the discrepancy in the world becoming between the quote unquote moral and the quote unquote natural. This problem is eliminated in the republic. The state becomes totally moral. Because it is totally rational. Virtue was identified with quote unquote objectification. Spirit is reduced to matter and the ability to manipulate it. This mortar thought that has worked so well to produce the kind of technical and social order the europeans desire has also created a moral and spiritual disaster. The formal religious statement has taken on the form of the rational state and has left europeans no access to necessarily spiritual reservoirs of human morality. This tendency has intensified over the centuries until now when the west is face tremendous self-doubt. But the point to be made. Here is that the epistemological model which the tonic abstraction was born the normative quote unquote absolute underlies the expression of the quote unquote monotheistic. Ideal the quote unquote rational religion syndrome and written codification as values in the formalize or christian religious statement stanley diamond succinctly states to reason for the monotheistic ideal as well as the.

"And poetry are written in the lower case. Just as are the gods of people who are not european and his obsession with the abstract and the absolute. Plato has borrowed from the teaching of the mystery schools that preceded him and from which she learned. There are also eurocentric scholars. Who say that. It was the other way around that traditions attributed to ancient egypt actually came later and were influenced by plato. He has taken the idea of a sacred eternal symbolically. Stated truth approachable through spiritual enlightenment and he has secularized and distorted it for ideological use. It is interesting that the mysteries of the universe for plato. Become profane as the esoteric becomes expert eric. And at the same time the separately elitist it is an epistemological system that everyone is forced to relate to only the very special few are capable of knowing the ideas and so must teach and rule the rest again. The creation of power this idea of the platonic abstraction raises an interesting point. It is important that all of us being able to see relationships between particular events and phenomenon and that we understand or organize them. We want our children to be able to think conceptually that is to feel comfortable with concepts that can be used to make sense of things to solve problems. We don't want them to be forever limited to the familiar circumstance. Unable to apply a concept to eight new situation problem there is also the very simple cultural reality that in all societies and cultures people must abstract from experience in order to organize themselves to build and to create and to develop abstraction. Has its place. It is not a european cognitive tool methodology but a human one contrary to european thought it did not begin with plato or greeks. Plato separates the world into two parts or rather creates two worlds the world of appearance and the world of reality. This operation has continued to characterize european scientific thought for stanley diamond. This is problematical as concepts become real entities rather than metaphors and such have power over people concepts become redefine. This indeed appears to have been plato's objective. Plato is late. The abstract from the concrete and the intellectual from the emotional however as diamond points out the platonic abstraction is but one kind of abstraction and it is this style that has become entrenched in european thought every linguistic system is a system of of abstraction eat sorting out of appearance and conclusion from it is an abstract endeavor every tool is a symbol of abstract thinking. Indeed all cultural convention all custom is testimony to the generic human capacity for abstracting. But such abstractions are the sole ably wedded to the concrete. They are nourished by the concrete. And they are. I believe ultimately into inducted not deducted. They are not in short specifically platonic abstractions and they do not have the politicized psychological connotations of the latter diamond has preferred the significance of the platonic style of abstraction it is ideological intent. Its role is to establish a pistol logical authority and of course other kinds of authority can then be derived from and supported by it..

"Truth or media is subjective in its personality in it personality is merged with tradition. How do we change this. Fundamental signs enable the reader to dispense with emotional identification please urge they move away from emotional involvement on question precepts and imitation today hamas urges us away from pre decisive validity claims based on cultural tradition. Plato supposedly introduced technical learning on the highest level of consciousness. So while plato is seeking to produce mines capable of the highest form of thought non literate man emerges as being barely able to think at all indeed. We cannot be sure that he is even conscious. And what is more. This epistemology is seen as to have moral implications as well the literate participant of the ideal state is more moral because ethics are to questioning criticism and analysis. While the earlier ethic was greek ethic was not of course wants the questioning takes place in these socratic dialectic. Not too much more. Questioning is necessary. Within the logic of european nationalism. These ideas were to be later. Echoed in nineteenth century evolutionary theory where victorian culture was judged as the highest form of representing a more objectively valid moral state. The assumption being that european values were arrived at critically and rationally and were therefore universally valid. This was a legacy from the in so called. Plato had set the stage for important ingredients of the european self image. He sees himself as a critical being rational. And in absolute control. His mission is to control and rationalize the world and this year Achieves through the illusion of objectivity plato himself must have been something like this stanley. Diamond of something like this stanley. Diamond draws a portrait quote. He wasn't seems a man of a certain type. In capable of tolerating ambiguity intuitive in his conviction of an objective superhuman good he believed the logic with the cool passion of mathematician. He believed that least abstractly that the perfectly just city would be established through perfectly rational and perfectly or the attic.

"To create mark uses one dimensional man. Each of us is suited to one task or mode of participation in the state the philosopher king and guardians will be able to determine our proper place and so our destiny. Very neat very simple. The republic is modeled after the good and abstract unambiguous unchanging monolithic. Reality in order for people within it would have to be convinced of the theory of the human on which it rests. Stanley diamond explains why the artists was seen as a threat to the state quote. The oddest does not believe in abstract systems. He deals with felt an ordered emotional. Ideals and believes order is attained through the contradictions. the tense unities of everyday experience. Thus the artist himself may be unstable changing and this is a threat to any establishment uncle on the other hand the met the mathematician would fare much better as plato's view of the ideal man for the ideal state. He emphasizes mathematics in the curriculum for the guardians for him. Mathematics had of truth and can provide the solution to the problems here again. A particular concept of human nature is implied. If people were in fact not like this he would make them so he would fashion their minds to think that the way they had to think To make his plan work he would train them with the Syntactical condition of the mathematical equation. Because numbers drag us towards benign nece in other words. They were changes that he had to make in the cognitive habits with oiseaux of the participants in the culture if he was to succeed in decryption of the new order. The new okay.

And it's interesting, Maryland emails. Why so many hateful white dies? Yes. Part of the problem. We have with this discussion is that there are a lot of people a lot of people who simply ours unco pick. They simply don't like people coming into this country. I recognize there's a problem on the southern border. I'm not I'm not blind to the fact that we have issues there. Building a giant wall, which the president would like to do by appropriating money. Congress wouldn't give him for something that isn't gonna work make sense. Four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten. Let me go to Fred calling for Monterey. Fred, welcome decay geo. Thanks, john. Where do you get your patients when these guys call in? It's incredible. And you're trying to educate them you try to bring them up to speed. And all they wanted to shove their talking points at you. And they don't make a lot of sense some of the time, and they the one guy he didn't anybody else come across the border, but he's got his undocumented Gardner. They loves dearly. It's just that's Republican. Wait, they went there. They don't want. Anybody else have anything else? Well, let me tell you, Fred, I get my patients from the fact that we need to have an intelligent discussion. I recognize their passions on all side. There is no question. And you remember Ronald Reagan conservative Republican in the program here. There was a there was an intent. There was a logic of understanding what the American dream is all about and when the president calls the people who come across the border, rapists, and murderers and gang members. He. Plays on that fear. And that's what I object to. And you know, the other thing be very honest with you, Fred, I believe people are people, and I believe it is our obligation to do everything we can to help people get John. We're all humans, and we need to help our brothers and sisters. They're from another country. Fred, I appreciate your call. And I will every time I have to think of being patient. I'm going to think of you. Thank you, sir. All right. We'll get by. Let's go if we can to Dan calling from San Jose, Dan. Welcome K GO. Hi, john. I heard the word discrimination. I had to call you. Good. Okay. I'm an American citizen. I work in a grocery store. Okay. Two times last week. I had Hispanic I can speak some Spanish. I I grew up in San Jose. The thing is is that they're telling me to learn Spanish. The customers that are coming through not all of them, and my fellow employees who are of Mexican or Hispanic and speaks Spanish won't speak Spanish because if you're going to come here, you need to speak the language. Let me answer by telling you. I had a very good friend who was Senator Hayek house chief-of-staff. His name was Stanley diamond Stanley came on my program, very often. He was an advocate for English as the official language of the United States. And I'm going to tell you I believe it's great for people to be multi-lingual the people preserve their identities. Whether it's French or Spanish or or. But in this country, if you want your children to achieve you have to speak English, not gonna take a quick story. Remember you? Remember he buys a Finnish? Don't worry. I'll let you finish. Your remember Yvonne IX that whole thing about do which vanished. I had a woman who called who was African American who said I'm not in favor of Ebonics. And I said why not she said because I want my grandbaby to get your job one day. And the only way her grand baby was going to get my job was to speak English. Okay. So the two people who did that one of them had food stamps. They're on food stamps, the other one paid me with a hundred dollar Bill, and my response to him with the hundred dollar Bill, you only speak Spanish, this is one hundred pesos, she only four more. These. He looked at me. And I said you're here because this is in English your come to this country. You wanna make money that's fine. But don't tell me what language I gotta speak. You're living here. Learn the language. I don't disagree with you. But you don't question. I always ask people whose discrimination telling me, I have to learn a language to Mexico. Learn the language, you know, what I also learned if you're an immigrant to this country. It's a standard question. I ask immigrants. What language do you dream in because the line count? What by the language you count in the language, you dream in is the language. You're most familiar with when my grandmother got older, she a child she studied in Germany, even though she spoke English fluently. She was born and raised in San Francisco. She reverted to German my point to you is very they're finish, speak English. Go ahead. Okay. When when the Vietnamese were coming here and a lot of them came to San Jose. I was going to City College. They wanted to practice their English on no problem. I'm happy to help you. But if you're telling me to learn a language in my own country. Don't don't don't generalize. Most people don't say that most people want to learn English. They want their children to learn English. They want their children to integrate I was very active in helping people from the former Soviet Union to come to the United States. I still see many of them their older people now their children and their grandchildren, speak English. And maybe they are lucky and speak Russian as well. Four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten Jeff calling from Santa Rosa, Jeff, welcome to K geo ohi, John. I'm so glad you have a permanent spot on geo. And I love your show. Thank you. I'm commenting about that caller before the break, the one who had the illegal Gardner, and who was saying let me try this again. Okay. He said that the the people are now coming from Guadalajara before they go to Mexico. Lahar is in Mexico. You know, what I like to say don't don't confuse people the facts? Jeff, right, right. So that's all I wanted to say, right? I really liked your show. Thank you. I appreciate it. Very much. Have a good day for one five eight zero eight zero eight ten so the president wants to close the US Mexico border next week. He says he's not playing games. Do you? Honestly believe the president of the United States can seal the border. I don't think so. And you know, something I don't want the border sealed. I don't want people who can come here legally not to be able to get in. I don't wanna see that kind of reaction. Let's get your comments. Let's go to my friend. Rob calling from Richmond. Rob. Thank you for your patience. Welcome to GIO, John. I'm sitting here with my other half of eighteen years legal immigrants from the Philippines. His entire family of legal citizens that came from there support Trump, and there's the board needs to be closed. We're for legal immigration, John, by the way, Poland and Germany and Ireland and Russia never were on borders, contiguous to us. Did you know talk about the it's so insulting to say that people can't handle facts, and we're trying to educate you. Yes, we are trying to educate the folks on the facts like these John if I were to ask you what percentage of children are born every year in California to illegal immigrant mothers. What percentage of all births and California? I have no idea, nor will it really matter to me well because the flood amendment if you believe in the constitution, rob the fourteenth amendment says if you're born in this country, you're. Citizen. I'll never forget. When Samuel was born. He was a Mohammed when Samuel was in the hospital when he was born he was there for a month. There was a real fear of the communist taking over Hong Kong and women from Hong Kong when they were seven months pregnant flew into this country in order to have their children here. So their children could be American citizens. If we want to change it wait if we want to change it we need to change the fourteenth amendment. And by the way, you can't do it the way the president said he wanted to do it by executive order. He didn't understand the constitution. You have to go through the process, but John border needs to be shut down. Because even you are not taking it seriously. There's birth tourism. You just described Bertha's, and it's thirty five percent of all births and California are to legal immigrant mothers and seventy percent. If you go to the con-, the county hospitals in this state, often third seventy percent of the birth to county in hospitals as to illegal immigrants, and then they get the automatic funds. I can't comment on your figures. But I. I have to express to you that if you have those figures, rob you have my Email, you send them to me because I want to see them because I spent a fair amount of time in the hospital when our son was born, and I'm constantly going there for various reasons, and I'll tell you the people I see coming into the hospital are not new immigrants. These are people. They may be immigrants, but they're mostly people like you and me who lot services. Well, you didn't years probably wasn't community hospital your son, you're joking about a General Hospital like San Francisco General hospital. Well. General hospital. No, he happened to and born at California Pacific medical center was John. There's also the DACA, which is a green light a magnet people. Trump alums blames a lot of this on the on the Democrats. It's true. Because was the William Wilberforce human trafficking law, which I've discussed before you and Pat, and it's giving the green light. And then they'll together with Dhaka and the floors the floors question, do you know, what president deported more illegals than any other president in the history of this country? It wasn't Obama. Yes. It was it was Obama, rob. That's the point. It was Obama. And the denial of fact doesn't strengthen your case. I appreciate your call de calling from San Francisco you welcome to k- GIO. Hi. Hi. Hi. I love your show. Thank you for having the conversation and literally. I. I've been a social. Thirty years now service also ran a couple of agencies, the let's get the facts straight. Okay. Undocumented. And I will say the word, I document that they do not get federal funds. They could not apply for any kind of federal help or federal government. You have to be a US citizen in order to receive any kind of help them any agency nonprofit that has any kind of service. Yeah. Agencies non topics that are holding their fundraisers. So. Absolutely. They can use them the way that they want to because people give them the agency that doesn't he'll services. For undocumented persons. People are giving up their own money. That caught but you have to be documented in order to receive any kind of services. That's connected with federal money. And I am so tired of listening to this constant. Bolsa? You can't we can't do it. There's no way we have in your audience that happened on a yearly basis quarterly basis. The federal funding. And if those things are not in place. Goes away. All I can tell you. I'm so glad you called because as I like to say, I don't want to confuse people with the facts. But that's precisely what you are doing what I try to do. And I'm very grateful for what you do. It's just marvelous. I applaud you for it. Well. Caller, caller. I.
