Is Zach Snyder's 'Justice League' a Good Movie?

"The very controversial for so many reasons for content reasons for formatting reasons i saw so many memes about the fact that it was reformatted. Four three zack zack. Snyder's justice league has officially dropped. We say dropped on the internet right. It's not like premiering a movie theater. It's just dropping on on. Streamers is fishy dropped on hbo. Max there's a complicated back story where zacks under had to leave mid production because of a family tragedy which is very sad judd app not try that patel just we took over just we apparently was a total asshole and there were all sorts of lawsuits. About what a dickey was and then you know. The film by many fans was not felt to reflects what zach snyder intended and there was long discussion of a zacks undercut image. Peo- max put in seventy million dollars to shoot a whole bunch more footage to make the zack snyder. Cut of justice league. Come out for years later. This is an interesting story because it is different. From a lot of directors cut stories. A lot of directors cut stories are ten years later. I'm grateful the studio give me access to the archive to rescan the negative and re-cut it is very rare in fact i can't think of an example where someone's like four years later. I got an extra seventy five million dollars to shoot additional footage to make an alternate movie like it is. Is there another example. That are missing where somebody got that. I don't know but what i do know. Is that in the history of film. There have been many many many directors cuts and extended editions and versions. That were revisited. We've talked about some of them here before. And most of our audience familiar with many of them It is not unheard of obviously for there to be something that prevents the original vision to be completed by the person who had it. And obviously there are many instances where somebody could go back and try and piece things together. Only orson welles. A number of times We even talked to. I talked to walter merch about going back in and recruiting and working on touch of evil. There are the magnificent emerson's with him as well. I think he's one of the early versions. Were early famous versions but bladerunner famously for anybody mir charles age And so much inbetween. It's such a common story but this one does stand apart because yeah he was given basically a massive feature film budget to make more of it his version of it and it is an interesting thing like will this happen more often. Will we get criminal. And saying actually i want to shoot a whole different ending too dark dark knight rises fifteen years later. Because i've rethought it. And i wanna go into a very complicated sort of relationship between the artists and the work when you remove the theatrical premiere and when you open up the idea of shooting original additional footage it is a it's vastly different so Full disclosure wasn't able to finish it have a two year olds. Get very sleepy very easily. Don't have four hours with two year. Old where i can watch the whole thing but universally in my social media of the people in my life everyone i know seems to have really enjoyed the new cup more than the last cut. I do not understand why people hate on sex neither so much. I genuinely enjoyed his dawn of the dead. I thought it was solid. I also am a like. I wanted to get into movies. Originally to make watchmen. When i was nice school. I don't hate his watchman. Cut like everyone else does. I don't understand whether so mad about it. I think people to hate sex. Neither for some reason that does not make sense to me. I'll also disclosed and then michelle. I know michelle is actually watched both right but so i have watched the new one. I watched the snyder cut. I did it. I made it through. Well di i not a big comic book movie fan. In general i have seen many of them though. And i did not see the original justice league so i had to do some research on what changed which was really interesting to me. I also actually really think highly of him from a visual standpoint. I find that even when he's not like a lot of the movies directed this one included. The material is just not great in my opinion but he's visually so committed to the bit that he does that his sequences really worked for me. And i think he's a great comic book movie director choice. Because i think he's really. His camera is like ballot. Check i think his action sequences are visually compelling. And i think his approach like to me the thing that felt the weakest about this. I mean obviously the some some major casting problems major script problems but all that aside i think it it mimicked. Some of what marvel does too much sometimes which i don't really like. They're some straight up. Like this is just an avenger. Seen but not as good. And i don't really love what it was in the first place personally but all my my personal take aside. I think filmmakers He is just he really doesn't. He's earnest he's not tongue in cheek and sometimes it gets a little silly and you might laugh. But i think his earnest approach to how dramatic he is with his camera like from dawn of the dead to the three hundred to a and tackling real quick charles before michelle I think that warner brothers is known to have some really tight released times. They don't have the same war chest that disney does for like they. They set these release dates. They they have to make them. I'm not going to get into the wise. And if sets really true but and that puts a lot of pressure on finishing something and delivering something. And i think that some of the the flaws in some of these dc comic book movies have to do with some of that some of us so anyway onto you. Michelle i f Well done on watching. The center is a endeavor. I i think i knew what the runtime was. But it doesn't click in my head until i was watching and the timeline at the bottom. It has like how long you've watched. And i miss read it. I thought it was much like when it said two and a half hours at the bottom. I thought that was a total Not they meant time that i had laughed and that was quite a surprise. So it's long. Don't don't kid yourself jack. Knifed mini series has parts could have been released in parts. My first input. If you will is i feel like i. Keep reading the quote snyder cut. That snyder wouldn't release in two thousand seventeen and i would argue that. I don't know this is i. Don't think this is at all what would have been released for so many reasons. It's a it's a post weeden post tragedy post. Hbo max snyder display. I don't think we would be able to release a for. I could be wrong. A four hour epic in a theater in twenty seventeen. I don't obviously say that. There are many teaser. There are changes are subtle there. Some people have pointed them out and in terms of very subtle and different. Like stolen changes. That i think are in there now. For example there's a billboard others billboard in the city at some point in the messages you're not alone and a lot of people have guessed that something that snyder put in in reference to his daughter. Like these little things that have been put in log away 'cause post years of reflection on it and i just don't think not content aside just the run time. I'm not sure how many people really yes for hours within a theatre. Let's do it. I don't know if we the same. i do. Think a really interesting experiment if anyone ever wants to ever play with this idea of same footage different story concept of how to edit something together. Because i started watching the josh sweden version the same evening. Don't do this same evening through off after watching case for a minute i thought you were. You said you meant side by side like you had to i. Four by three setup does allow you. I will say to have it on the side of my screen. As i was like doing some work so i will say the former three at least helpful in the arrangements of your browser window because like i'm not cutting anything off because it's not a letterbox or other format so the four by three is is is makes it easier to have the size. No i tried watching the conversion right. After some of the scenes giving away some of the scenes that feel pivotal in the story. Line are like thrown in the credits. The opening like oh i get with. This is going to do you. I don't know if i can sit through

"By woods. Tiger tiger is back on woods. The two thousand nineteen masters champion and breathtaking performances. Here's how you count eight. Three two time college basketball's still championship. Trophy is coming home to kentucky. But behind every great hero there are others individuals who play a crucial role in the achievements of those we read about in the headlines the ultimate team players content to stand behind the curtain embracing their place as a vital part of a sports success in horse racing. These are the unsung heroes horse racing full of unsung heroes including my special guest here. This morning lena lori l. who is the longtime exercise. Rider for hall of fame trainer. Shook mcgahey began working with sugar and nineteen eighty-four after moving from her native sweden. She is still with him today. Shook says she is an integral part of his success in his hall of fame career. And lena this week's unsung hero. Lena thanks for taking the time. Appreciate the visit. Our you know thirty seven years is an awful long time to do anything but to be an exercise rider for a man of the stature in an operation the stature of shook mcgahey boy what a ride. This is ben Yes i mean. That's the. I'm so lucky because i get to work with some of the very best horses. Then we have all the best resources so that makes my job easier to the come from the yes. Go ahead. I'm sorry to interrupt you. Go ahead no you go. How does a girl from sweden ended up working with such prestigious operation like shook mcgahey as far as I traveled in europe for a couple of years with a girlfriend and then my girlfriend need to go to america to so i said okay. I'm gonna go for six months. And then when i came over here As far as i freelance for a couple of months and then shook needed somebody to go to florida. And that's why i approached him about coming to where the job while still thirty seven years later the relationships still stands and still going strong. He sings your praises when i reached out to him and asked him if there was anybody who could think of that deserved to be an unsung hero on this particular segment He immediately sent back to me and gave me your name and your number. And he is so proud of you lena. While i'm proud to be part of the things that we can work together and the have because it seemed work. Everybody's important has to design work and that of course you have to have good verses to get to the top level which is why we like to be. How do you describe your role as an exercise rider. I'm a little bit of teacher like you. Work with the horses. Like young children and my job is to get them ready for the racist. Now some of them. You can see them in bombay. You just show them one time and they know exactly what to do and some of them you have to practice over and over and over again just like that like how children can be not everybody learns the same way so my job was something going on. Yeah it's such a great way to put it. I love that being a teacher working with these young horses. Getting them to to develop mentally and physically i i would imagine. It's about both of those right. Oh absolutely and that's i think that's the biggest difference between regular horses good horses and really great tortoises that great horses have special mind they have a special mindset. They used it really enjoy their work. They understand what you wanted to do. So a lotta times my horse. My job is easy because they already wanna do right now and out the other horses that you really have to practice with and have to do the things a lot more slow as it's as more of a challenge because towns on if you are yeah yeah there has to be more development. If you're the teacher tell me about some of your your price pupils if you will.

COVID-19 Relief Package Includes Billions For Transportation Sector

"All right how often did you fly. Or maybe the trainer buster in the pandemic. Yeah the transportation sector has been hit hard but anyone who rides in trains planes or automobile should benefit from the one point nine trillion dollar cove relief package. Npr's david schaper reports. It was a year ago this week. The us what unlocked down highways and airports were suddenly almost deserted. People travelling overseas scrambled to get flights home at mass transit. Trains ran nearly empty in the virginia. Suburbs of washington. Dc forty six year old. Sandra vigil had been driving buses packed. with sixty. to seventy people are more. We ended up taking towards the end of march. He was like one two people per ride. If you had any people at all last march twenty ninth vigil says she about ninety five percent of her loudon county. Transit co workers were furloughed. Her's lasted four and a half months and unemployment wasn't enough to make ends meet. A lot of fail behind are not rental car payments. Because he was either eating or paint a car or paying the rent and thing they lakeville transit systems across the country so ridership plummet ninety percent or more in revenue fell with it yet. Mass transit is essential especially for many low wage workers. Again bus driver. Sandra vigil in order to keep the buses running and to keep us working. We needed this money. The relief bill includes thirty billion dollars for transit. It also includes one point seven billion dollars for amtrak enough to bring twelve hundred furloughed employees back to work and restore daily service on long distance routes and there's funding to help states continue fixing crumbling roads and bridges offsetting. They're lost gas tax revenue as for airlines. I have fantastic news year. That's american airline ceo. Doug parker in a video message to employees about the plan which includes another fourteen billion dollars payroll support. That's good news for the thirteen thousand american employees who were facing furloughs april. First so if you have one of those worn out notices we sit out in february. Tear it up. There aren't going to be any furloughs at american airlines in april and with vaccinations on the rise. Hopefully never again. Ceo parker says the last three weeks have been the airlines best. Since the pandemic hit with bookings and passenger volumes up that's happening at other airlines too so much so that after months of hemorrhaging tens of millions of dollars a day the ceo's of delta and united now expect to reduce their daily cash. Burn two zero this month or next while southwest is on track to break even by june. Of course that's relatively easy to do. When tax payers are essentially covering much of your payroll airlines have now received more than fifty billion dollars in federal payroll grants since the start of the pandemic. This was hugely important. And as a pilot for american airlines at spokesman for the pilot's union. The last thing i wanted to be is on our heels when everybody was ready to get back. Flying tiger says if pilots had been furloughed. They need weeks. If not months of training before being able to fly passengers again. You do not want to be staring at the recovery and turning around and seeing the flight deck empty. Because you weren't able to train. The pilots quickly. Enough joe sweet. Herman transportation professor at chicago's depaul university. Says this government aid is crucial is pretty clear that the airlines were such a desire straight federal assistance and a big way we would have lost an airliner to sweden and says the federal aid helps airlines amtrak transit agencies and highway departments continue critical operations while adapting to a post covid world a world that will likely lead to more operational changes in the near.

How a big, queer, black woman is redefining "yoga body"

"Noticed when i post pictures of my yoga practice that the responses i got from people. It wasn't really like that. Many people giving me feedback on my practice. It was mostly people being like. I don't know that people could do yoga. And i would just be like. Why do you think fat people can't do yoga. Fat people do all kinds of stuff all the time and like clearly we have a visibility problem so this is a really fascinating. Turn taking those comments. Which could either understandably caused someone to be like. Fuck you instagram. I'm piecing out But rather see it as an opportunity. And i'm curious why that was for you. Yes if it had just been people saying like wow. I didn't know if that person can do yoga. I like them. Bitch get is because everybody. Does everything concern about that. But on top of that was people being like. I didn't know fat people could do yoga. I'm fat person. Can i do yoga. And so my response to that is hell. Yeah you can do in fact you should and in fact it's not just fat people so that like there'd be so many different kinds of people who will reach out to me be like wow. I didn't know that someone who looks different than what society tells us. They should look like is allowed to do whatever they want. This is inspiring me to do whatever i want and that to me was a motivator to continue to engage with the community and the community. Was i sure. Engaging back justin's instagram accounts started growing photo by photo. She was posting videos of herself. Working through a sequence. He was offering her own advice for complicated poses. And you better believe. She brought her personality along for the ride. This was no like straight laced. Candle lit all white yoga session. No enya playing in the background. She was playing lauren hill in the background and she would encourage her followers to try yoga themselves if they were too nervous and eventually she started getting messages from people asking her to come teach them where they were. They'd be like can you come. Teach me in sweden. can you come to melbourne. Can you come to like venezuela. I'll know dude like literally everywhere. Jesmyn was flattered but she wasn't convinced that the world needed more yoga teachers. It wasn't until after her friends. And even her parents encouraged her to pursue teaching that she gave in and decide to get some training but there is still a problem because caroline becoming a yoga teacher or going through. Why t or yoga teacher training can cost between two and three thousand dollars as a grad school dropout working in a tapas restaurant like gentleman is not making that kind of dough but her parents actually stepped in and helped her which was a financial burden for them but very cool way to support her so she quit day jobs and enrolled going in jesmyn. Figured she'd get this credential hardest poses and that'd be that but about halfway through the through the training we were doing this partner. Yoga exercise and i was paired with someone who is much smaller than i am. She is like five feet tall. I don't know how much you weigh. When you're that you're that she's like that So and then. I'm so we're on opposite sides of the spectrum and as a fat body person i have spent my whole life paranoid about even touching somebody in a way. That could hurt them like. I'm afraid that if i sit too close to someone that i could hurt them like. There's this constant obsessive thought about the weight in needing to apologize for the wait and so the idea of being in this environment where i haven't have to physically put my entire body weight onto this. Very tiny person was horrifying to me. And so i spent like every time that i would even touch her. I would apologize every time. I'd be like oh i'm sorry. Oh i'm sorry. Oh i'm sorry. And after a while she stopped me for hand on my shoulders literally and looked in my eyes and was like you do know. You don't have to apologize for everything right. And i laughed because laughing is one of my defense mechanisms and i was like. Oh yeah sorry I guess i just was apologizing for existing and to hear me say it. She just caught her eyebrows. Me and like went back to the but i was shook i was like. Are you kidding me. i think i don't deserve to exist. i think i'm apologizing for existing. Is that how long have i been thinking that like have been thinking that since birth

A psychologist explains the limits of human compassion

"Psychologist. Paul slavic says to understand psychic numbing. We have to look at how humans make decisions in analyze risk. it's not just this. Straightforward cost benefit analysis in what social scientists have have learned through observation and experiment is that We've got another way of analyzing risk and that's through our gut feelings which is a very sophisticated way that our brain can process risk information in fraction of a second week in size up a situation decide whether to run away or to approach it or whatever. You know that the problem is that our feelings are. They aren't good at quantitative assessment and our feelings are energized by a single individual at risk. What we call a singularity effect and individualize very important but the problem is that if there are two people at risk that does not feel twice as concerning as if there are one it may be a bit more concerned but not twice as much as the numbers increase. We've become even more and more insensitive. So if i tell you that they're eighty seven people endangered in some situation. You'll be concerned then. I said oh wait a minute. I made a mistake. There are eight people whom you won't feel any different. Feeling system is just not able to differentiate in a different feeling for eight eighty seven right and then as we studied this we found. It's even even worse than than this insensitivity as the numbers increase sometimes we begin to lose sensitivity. Not just that. We don't differentiate between one large number and another we care less. The numbers are so large. They're just you know they don't convey any feeling and we have a a phrase for what we've observed In this respect and that is the moore who died the less we care. Yeah so i mean it kind of sounds like you know what you're saying in situations like this pandemic that our feelings may actually kind of deceive us. In a way with with risk taking absolutely our feelings deceive us and they deceive us not only with regard to the pandemic. They deceive us with regard to the seriousness of genocide and mass atrocities. That have been taking place around the world continuously since the end of world war two and the holocaust when we vowed never again. Would we allow this to happen. And well it happens over and over again And we we often turn our backs to their. These are just statistics of faraway people. And we they don't convey the emotion that's necessary to motivate us to action so there's a lot of ways in which our feelings deceive us. Our feelings deceive us with regard to thinking about climate change. You know where we've got a major catastrophic changes in all sorts of climate affects. There's going to be hugely influential. And we're not doing what we should to mitigate or prevent this from happening right right. Okay paul so is there any way around this you know. What can we do as individuals t get beyond the psychic numbing. Well the the first step is awareness you know. And that's what i i. I see as the first implication of are working to try to get these findings known so people are sensitive and aware of these and then the second step is okay. Now what what can i do about it. And the There are a number of things i as individuals we need to slow down in our thinking. We're we're giving information like this. We need to pause not just go to a quick intuitive feeling about it but to think a little bit more carefully about what the reality is beneath the surface of these numbers. We need to pay attention to stories of individuals who are representative of the larger problem and people in the in the media needs to be giving us information about individuals and stories Not just the statistics are important. They should be there but we also need stories about individual lives that are impacted by what we're concerned about. Yeah yeah you know as a as a science communicator and a journalist this makes me think about some of the research that you've done around this right like how reporting statistics about mass casualties. Don't always move people to act. I'm thinking about your research on the infamous photograph of ellen. Kurdi the child who drowned fleeing syria. Tell me about that work. So the syrian war began in two thousand eleven. The government of serious started to attack people who are protesting for various reasons against the government and it got quite violent and by two thousand and fifteen Some two hundred and fifty thousand people have died in the syrian war. Many of them civilians and there was little interest in that and we could. We could assess the level of interest by looking for example under google searches for syria or refugees. And you see it was flat and near near zero for four years and then that changed overnight when the picture of the boy and the beach went viral around the world and you. Some people started searching for syria for refugees and so forth. We we found an even more important indicator of how this one photograph woke people up to something that they should have been alert to because of two hundred and fifty thousand deaths and millions of refugees that were spawned by the conflict there and we found that the donations for example to the red cross in sweden Were greatly Impacted by that picture and so one might ask. Why does it take a photograph to motivate us. Why isn't thousands of deaths enough and again illustration of the fact of the psychic numbing. You know that these are just numbers and we relate much more strongly to stories and images very powerful example of that. We also found that it didn't last forever. I mean over the next month the that donations started to decrease again and the searches. Google started to decrease. And what i think that showed. Is that when you have very important events like this happening. That a dramatic incident or event or photograph can wake us up and it gives us a window of opportunity that's That's very important and enduring that window. That's when things need to happen both at the individual level or also at the societal level were were officials now they have the opportunity to do something that makes a difference. We're we're seeing another moment like that in the aftermath of the The attack on the capital when suddenly were awake to right wing extremism which has been around for the. It's not that his new. And i think we've been sort of a complacent we've been very complacent about same thing with racial injustice and the black lives matter movement of of the summer in certain events were dramatic and they cut through the complacency that existed so all of these events gives us a window of opportunity when we were ready to act and s when things can happen share. You know like you said part of this is realizing when action needs to be taken an taking that action and one thing that you've talked about. Is that people have to get past this. Full sense of efficacy. Right that idea that when a problem is this big what you do. Does it really matter but you know actually does you know especially in this pandemic yes. We have to recognize the fact that even partial solutions to a problem can save whole lives as we even. If you can't do it all we should be demotivated from doing what we can do.

My face wasn't virology on tumor biology, but I've been working as a filmmaker and author for the last two. Decades Lena lived in the US for a while. She made films for lifetime television now she lives in Sweden where she's one. The Swedish National Book Award. But she still has that scientific habit of asking questions a lot of questions. And since the coronavirus pandemic started up, she hasn't been able to stop asking. When the epidemic in Wuhan started, I was following. It's you know and I noticed that nothing was happening in Sweden's. So I started making contact with the state epidemiologist of Sweden. And asking him, you know what's going on I. Know. They're warning that there would be a worldwide pandemic and you have to prepare you know. I was reading in Lancet article what they say to you, so he said well. There are a lot of. Lot of projections from very loose data. We shall see what happens. That's what he answered. It was an email. This was back in February about a month before the United, states would shut itself down. Lena own government should be doing more earlier. The state epidemiologist disagreed. And all the while a lot of Swedes were starting to fly all over Europe for their annual winter break. They call it a sports holiday. Out of them go to the Alps. Mulata then go skiing in Italy and and so the public health agency with the state. Works it said you should accidentally cancel your your plans and Blah Blah Blah. For a couple of days, Lena kept pressing this government health official, but she didn't really get anywhere I love this story because it really. I hear your personality in it. I mean I. Know You lived in the United States for a number of years. Have you. Have you heard the word gadfly? But I'm not sure exactly what it means. It's it's. Meeting somebody dating? Right but like but with good intentions. After all that. Lena didn't give up just started. Her questions allowed her. First she wrote to an infectious disease specialist. One of Sweden's best, and I wrote to him because there was nobody else to write to. Sounds like almost for moral support. Just would not be the twilight zone. You know an Dr Connected Lena with other scientists. All of them were watching Sweden's public health. Leaders insist on keeping businesses and primary schools open while the rest of the world. Shut Down, you know, and they were all really sounding desperate all of them. And why were they desperate? It was the prelacy. How is this GonNa? Go on I can't stand it. You know why watch why are they doing like this? And so I just said to them? Let's write an article. and. We did. Twenty two scientists ended up signing onto this statement. It was headlined. Public health authorities have failed now. Politicians must intervene. Are Now known as the twenty two. Where many more than twenty two at this point, we're still called the twenty two. If. This were a simple story. This is the point where I'd explain the success of the twenty two. How Swedish politicians eyes were opened by the alarm. They sounded. But. This is not a simple story and this article. It didn't change much of anything.

So we had this sort of remarkable absence of a lockdown in Sweden even so things are certainly different social life has slowed outdoor activity has slowed but I wonder without an official lockdown and the legally enforced lockdown and even without public schools being closed. How is it going in Sweden? How does it compare to? I Dunno Sweden's neighbours. And is that a fair comparison? Sweden the is have lower figures lower for Sweden and Denmark. The number of in nineteen death was fairly equivalent at first but then Sweden saw a surge in April. Sweden's death rate is twenty four hundred thousand people compared with the. Uk's at thirty nine there. Sweden looks poor compared with neighboring Denmark. Over seven and no way at under four. But obviously you know as an element of Cherry picking when you look at other countries if you compare it to Belgium for instance here it's in Sweden. It's two hundred eighty three dead per million in Belgium. It's six hundred. Ninety two is also The Public Health Agency. IS KEEN TO STRESS. That different countries have different ways of of counting and recording. Ed eighths and that different countries are at different stages of the pandemic and so on and testing as well right. Yeah says Sweden has tested about one hundred and twenty thousand people so far and there's been a promises of greatly extending testing for quite some time to haven't really been realized as so there's a lot of discussion about that now in Sweden Howard different groups in Sweden. Doing I mean the United States. We're definitely seeing the elderly are more vulnerable and we're seeing more quote unquote essential workers being affected by this. Because they're out there every day taking buses taking public transit. And on the sort of frontlines of this yeah There's a huge problem in in care homes or nursing homes fatalities in care homes account for a third of Sweden's deaths from the krona virus in the Stockholm region which is the hardest hit area that figure rises to fifty percent and so both the government and the public health agency have been very keen to defend the Swedish strategy. But they've also admitted that much. This has been a major failure we can say is that we have a large amount of the deaths or connected to the elderly homes and we are now investigating very foley what we can do to prevent contagion from entering those places as the infection and death rates climb care. Workers and union representatives have also shed stories in the media and in reports of at poor routines of a lack of protective equipment bad communication for management teams and and kind of working conditions in the elderly caste system. That means Workers have been very vulnerable and have also exposed potentially elderly people to to the virus. There's not been a will to test US systematically at least in places where worked even if there are people with symptoms. They're not being tested. One about the economy has not locking down spared Sweden from the crises. We see mull over the planet I mean of course in a globalised world. The Swedish economy is not doesn't exist isolation of course a lot of industries and sectors are affected not least tourism hospitality and unemployment is is soaring here as well. I know hundred. An eighty three businesses within the hotel and restaurant industry filed for bankruptcy in the first three weeks of April alone so obviously a lot of individuals and a lot of companies in sectors of feeling the impact of of this Pandemic I know. I saw figures the other week that the IMF International Fund predicted that the Swedish economy would shrink by point eight percent so by comparison the two thousand nine financial crisis close to five point two percent full and also if we haven't had a look down and the measures taken here very tame compared to other countries. It still is the case that life has radically changed in terms of how you move about and how you spend your money and and the caution of Asli that that people are taken with their personal finances that at a time of uncertainty so it's not as if Sweden is booming financially at the moment. So what does that mean for this approach that the government took this approach to avoid lockdown? I mean it sounds like it didn't necessarily save the economy and it didn't necessarily stop the spread of this virus am i. I don't correct me if I'm over. Simplifying it but was was it a smart approach you think or is it too early to say. I think it's too early to a label. Any approach of any country as either right or wrong at this point I think we have to wait for some time to to make sort of conclusive judgment on that but I also think considering that this is a global crisis it would be impossible for Sweden to not be impacted. I mean both in terms of a health and And deaths and in terms of the but I think a the argument from the authorities here in defense of of avoiding down it also means that Sweden is not in a situation that other countries find themselves in now in terms of debating how to open up you know the big issue for many other countries right now is the exit strategy and Sweden in in many ways needs an exit strategy as well. Because we're not living as we did and just a few months ago but obviously the transition back to normal see is not as complicated as in other countries. There's always going to be a differences in opinion as to whether the strategies is right or wrong but I also think we're still in the midst of it and perhaps a year from now or even further away. The debate will sound completely different. I mean who knows but I also think it. That's a very legitimate concern. And worry and disappointment I guess for someone who perhaps has an elderly relation in a care home and sees. What's going on there and this? There's lots of frustration among care. Workers and a lot of people are being affected. Obviously by the pandemic people are going to have very different experiences.

Not even partial lockdown. You know people are really told us to if you have any symptoms stay but great schools are still open restaurants. They're trying to survive. Your people are about in errands. The people that can work from home. They do work from home now. Most most people. I think the nature of Swedes. We're kind of GOODA distancing because we're not really talking people hadn't kissing so now I'm the crazy. American here is embracing and hugging and talking to everybody and say hi so this is my first time out hence my not a months. We are so high city my mother but my daughter's school is open so for my daughter. It's really tough. That are in our own kind of self isolation teenager missing or friends. Promise cancelled our birthdays in three weeks and sixteen. That is typically. This will be fully packed during lunch. fully-packed an use a queue waiting for able here staff. Really quiet there. I think for most part people. You're just feel like okay. Listen we're all going to get this and then we will be search. That was mrs stuff that was going out like in the beginning of the experts. Said like this everybody's GonNa have this For TEENAGERS OR PEOPLE UNDER LIFE Party. It's just going be like fever morning. Typical flu you get over it. There has been a lot of criticism of Sweden. But it's more on social media. Nobody's coming out in public and criticizing anything here. The Swedes really did get into a bit of a Hissy. Because trump mentioned Sweden the talk about Sweden Sweden is suffering very gravely. You know that right. Sweden did that the heard. I know we don't show his opinion. Of course we're suffering. Everybody in the world is suffering right now in different ways but Swedish health care which I guess it's too. It's very difficult. Understand his taking care of this in a very very good manner. Swedish healthcare is one with the best in the world. People are also doing her best here to keep cool not to get into fear and media here is not doing that. They're not panicking asking. You're not even when friends. I you know giving advice to to syncing. Hey stock up. Just in case for my best friend said no no. But that's forty and I think one thing about Swedes. Those they really listen to their government and when they are told. Okay just social distance if you have any Symptoms at all. Just stay home and people are respecting that if it blows up in in our in our faces here we're gonNA find out soon enough. This approach main not work anywhere else besides Scandinavia. You know we're trying to make the best of the and in that time we're finding a lot of you know about ourselves and our families and also taking a look at the culture and be hopeful for the future very sensible does it. I I WANNA thank Neena and victory for going out and shooting that beautiful video video for us and giving us a sense at least from their perspective of what's taking place in Sweden you know when we were first talking to needed Nina. You know she said you know Swedes or actually very natural. Add social distancing is sort of how we live cheever mentioned that in Sweden they have more one person homes occupancies than any other country in the world so maybe those things lean towards why this is very effective but at one point out that Nina said this was the first time coming out of the thirty days you see where the mass but it is important to note that she has a mother at home. That's over the age of ninety years old so she has been probably you know taking more concern and more care because of that so i WanNa thank both of them for going out. I also wanted to get a perspective though of from another person in Sweden that really sits in that demographic that older than sixty five years old that we're hearing is at risk around the country. So hopefully we can pull this off. I want to bring in this Morris Perry Morris. Can you hear me okay? Moore's first of all. Just how old are you if you don't mind telling me Be Tuning. Seventy two in September seventy two and so. Obviously you've seen the news right. I mean there is if there is a risk. It's in that age group over sixty five years old. What is your perspective? Then you know. There's been a lot of criticism of house we'd has been handling this. D- You feel that this approach by your leadership is putting people like you at risk. I. I've been pulling wasn't as a family as you may or may not know all over the world the US and Europe in Israel everywhere. So and I've been looking at the way each country's been handling it now. I know there are a lot of people were saying. Well Sweden does too lenient and While I won't say here but in Europe and in the US that you guys having any lockdown at all in fact there is no lockdown. It's just a lot of recommendations and of course people at my age. They say anyone over seventy stay home social systems at don't meet people but they also realize that people have to get move around as I think you just pointed out yes. Sweden is one of these countries where people don't hug each other all the time that it's not like Italy people face to face. I work with communication. I know that the distance between people in Sweden is definitely greater than you. Take the USO or Italy so this is a very natural thing here but Mike personal experiences give people freedom of movement than a you know and just have intelligence and common sense to understand okay. Something is going to happen if you don't listen does enough Was it the examples around the world right showing that countries or towns cities new Rome wherever it may be at Stockholm where you have people very close together. That's when you're GONNA get infections the rest of the country. We live in the suburbs. Just not stop them. And it's it's open earlier so you don't need to be locked in. I go out of my car. I don't play also go down the road. My wife who's younger than Migos doesn't shopping. So I avoid the supermarkets and that sort of thing but but often that I don't feel restricted at all but I do not go out and hug people now. Everybody takes it seriously. They wash their hands A couple of examples as well because My daughter she's in a university town a couple of hundred miles yet. She thought she had the virus and she'd gone into isolated a self four five weeks now and then. She kept saying why still have headaches. I still had to throw to. She context doctors who she finally gets through. And they say you have a pollen allergy. So she's been isolating for five weeks for really nothing. My wife myself came back from the Alps in the end of January and Tina by felt she had the virus. But we don't know exactly as you're saying is competent country on lockdown and destroy economies. And hope that you know you have it. You don't have it when one percent uh getting infected. I can give you a couple of weeks today because I mean please at the very moment today. Twelve thousand people registered infected in Sweden. Now we know there's a big black number out there because how many have actually had don't know about it by having twelve thousand. Yeah off the twelve thousand. Nine hundred thirty. Three people have died. On behalf of those are actually in homes with the has been neglect. There's no discussion about that in Sweden. They're really looking at this closely us. Oh and the other half while cities and in an who's GonNa get infected is looking at the curves today and it's from babies to people in the nineties Once infected people my age. There are nine thousand nine hundred people from the age of fifty to fifty nine two thousand. So why are we? Lucked OUT RIGHT RIGHT. An and then suddenly yesterday the young guy who has a young guy fifty one years old a very well known. Tv AND RADIO PERSONALITY PASTA. He went three weeks ago. He went hospital. Coffin assaults Rodney Jesse. James died. So there's no telling who but you can't put a country on lockdown the economy's suffering all of the world in we can be getting subsidies in the US two trillion dollars and in Europe. It's trillions of dollars whether it's coming from I don't even know but But and it's all just a rescue rescue jobs are going. Businesses are going Mike Consulting business died instantly. Because you know people just come to employ because it only companies are international companies. Right and this. The problem is all going to be. How many debts register from from the virus at the end of the day? We're going to have how many people died because of starvation. How many people died because of loneliness suicide depressions? That's what the numbers are going to hit. And that's where I feel. Sweden have found a balance or does nobody has the formula. As you're saying we can carry on and on and on and wait till one day we have the actual figures and say who was right. Who was wrong. Point the fingers in this direction that's direction but in the meantime you've got a gallon living. I think that's really so I can carry on talking about this as you know absolutely well. It's perfectly stated. I appreciate your time. It's getting very late there Morris. That was a really great breakdown of Sensibility. Something that we've been attempting to be a part of here on the high wire through all of this. I think that you know we can understand how scientists may get it right. They may get it. Wrong is certainly seem very dangerous upfront but it is interesting this tweet and just decided to really hang in there and really there's a lot of scientists breaking ranks now all over the world and supporting what. Sweden has decided to do. My last question to you you said potentially your wife may have it. You don't know. Are you concerned that if you get it at seventy years old that it could be fatal for you? What is your personal feeling? I keep myself pretty healthy nephew. You know I'm a believe in a fatalist what what happens happens. But I'm looking at sort of go around and put my head in the second say because Brecon follow my head anyway so I feel that stay healthy. Just be doable. And and just ride this out so.

"I mean, I think what's also going on is the the Sweden Democrats were really the only party. To be even slightly skeptical to immigration before twenty fifty. And I think the rest of the political establishment is paying the price for really, actually being quite naive had twenty-fifty no, the the prime minister at missed it, Sweden was naive, and so the Sweden Democrats have you know no wave gain credibility by being able to say, look, we told you. So what's let's say, you know, we return to the supposing figures e scientists earlier Sweden, Democrats at twenty percent. The other parties designed to standard have said they're gonna not do any business with them. Keep them out of government at all costs. Is that going to be practical? And if even if it is, are they going to have to just to the kind of politics? The Sweden Democrats represented in other ways. I mean, it's the sixty four million dollar question to put it in some contexts. Last time round in two thousand fourteen the Sweden Democrats about thirty. They essentially very nearly a brought down the government. The government said they were announced new elections. They look like Sweden with ungovernable. They managed cobble together a compromise that compromise is sort of Phoolan apart. I some parties on the right would like to have not cooperation with the Democrats open to being sort of implicitly supported from parliament by Sweden, Democrats, most different in Sweden elsewhere as they have a negative system of negative parliamentarism that just means the government has to avoid having a majority against it. So if you can Sweden Democrats to abstain in return from MRs may maybe a slightly tougher Gration policy. Then that's the way out the door also opens potentially something a bit more ground breaking in. Sweden, which would be some kind of grand coalition. That's the ruling social Democrats would clearly like to see they'd like to pick off a couple at the smallest center right parties and have some kind of left right government and Ben, I mean returning to the broader European context. As we were saying, this is swings a medium size countries, a big European country, but it's being watched very closely, and it is part of a broader trend is that you think any evidence of kind of populist international if you like of these different groups making common cause what there are. Certainly some people who imagine that a populist international as possible, like Steve Bannon, Donald Trump's former adviser who has actually made it a sort of implicit aimed try and galvanize this populist nationalist front ahead of European elections next year. The thing is there are many differences between these populist parties and. Some, some of them have already pledged not to work with others and there are differences of you in differences of policy. So I think it would be difficult to see how they could coalesce in a single group. I think where they can coalesce though is in disrupting the way the EU works. I think that's the biggest threat to to you're probably right now part from Brexit that you can have people like Victoria ban of Hungary who doesn't want take in any more refugees, for example, from the rest of Europe, and you have Matteo Salvini who desperately wants other European countries to take in more refugees. They should be ultra with each other. And yet somehow they're making kind of common Coors to challenge. Central centralized could have rule if you like by from from the EU and that is going to cause the problems because particularly on on issues like migration, they need unanimity essentially to to move forward. Yeah, yes. Essentially they do and also what you're what you have is just a sort of growing mass of disruptive forces in the EU which is going to make a governing the much much harder. Do you have a sense of what ceiling for these popular Sauber's as Richard was suggesting these, the Swedes kind of later than others. We've seen the Danish People's Party the true Finns in Scandinavia there they've almost become part of the political scenery. Do you think that the same thing could happen with the Sweden Democrats? It's just that you will have now have a kind of nationalist party, but they don't tend to go above twenty percent. I think there is a natural limit in modern democratic still quite liberal Europe to the level of support for these parties, which is why you had many people lost year in France who said the threat from Marinela pens, National Front was overblown that as sort of natural limit to her support. The presidential?.
