Are Human Beings Naturally Good? Ben Carollo Weighs In
"I have it more interesting, I think, more important question. Do you think human beings are naturally good? Human beings are naturally social, right? Which means that human beings could be good or evil, right? The reality is that like what makes us good is also what makes us evil, right? Because the reality is, like, what would you do for your family? A lot. You do a lot, right? I think we would all basically do anything for our families. And that is both what makes us so capable of goodness and kindness, but it's also what makes us so capable of vicious evil because the reality is, if we thought that people were threatening our families, we would do a lot of terrible things, right? But if we work together with other people and other families, and we extend our minds to understand that we have a shared sort of societal experience, then we're going to do a lot of good things for each other. So ultimately, when it comes to whether or not human beings are good or evil, we're just naturally social. We want to fit in and be part of a society. So ultimately, it really depends on the way society is structured that determines whether or not we end up being good or evil. But it is all basically from us being pro social.
Charlie and Trans Marxist Ben Carollo Discuss Cultural Marxism
"Where does cultural Marxism fall under your ideology? Cultural Marxism is literally a Nazi conspiracy theory. Like literally, like literally the Nazis and Nazi Germany invented the phrase cultural Marxism. The fact that you're asking me about it is a pretty telling to who you are. Oh, you think I'm a Nazi? I'm most definitely. I mean, at this point, like you've made it pretty clear. Why am I not? Ask me questions about cultural Marxism. That's literally like so in case you let me ask you cultural laws. Who is he? Why are you bringing grams into this? No, but just tell me who he is. The Italian socialist. Yeah, so what phrase did he coin? I don't know, you tell me. Cultural Marxism. Was he a Nazi? Okay. No, Antonio. Oh, so maybe it didn't come from the Nazis. Okay, literally. So why would you say something so false when gramsci himself came up with the phrase? Do you know what the conspiracy theory is around cultural Marxism, then why it got so popular in Germany? So let's go back to Grom. She, what did he write about cultural Marxism? I don't know. Let us know in prison. Yeah, you're not familiar because you just keep on spouting out these things that call people Nazis which is super unhelpful and not true. And so yeah, Antonio gramsci from prison said that marxists must adopt a cultural framework alongside an economic framework in order to get the means of what they want to get done. That's not a conspiracy theory, just read his book. Okay, but that's different than the phrase cultural Marxism. How is it used? What do you mean? It's exactly the same thing. No, it's not exactly the same thing. So what happened is a Nazi Germany and they spread this theory called cultural Marxism. They literally had this theory that Jewish people were secretly like bringing Marxist theory into the mainstream and literally that's not at all what is anybody on the right talks
Charlie Debates Trans Marxist Ben Carollo on China
"How are an individuals wants and needs represented best in a Marxist society? I'll ask the commie. Obviously through their democratic structure, like the reality is, right? This is the thing, right? Obviously going back to the role of the state to serve the interests of the working class to suppress the interests of capitalists, which is exactly why people like Charlie Kirk obviously are very unsettled with it because the reality is that in America, working class people have to worry about the government kicking down their door for doing things like smoking marijuana. But in China, it's not that working class people have to worry about the government kicking down their doors. It's corrupt billionaires that have to worry about the government kicking down their doors. Just look, for example, giant tech companies, making tons and tons of money in China with very little regulations. Well, what does China do? They put in tighter regulations on these tech companies. And then they take money from these tech billionaires, and then they give it to anti poverty programs across the more rural parts of China in order to fund schools, food, things like that. Like for example, China is this really, really great co op development program, which is really, really great. So they combine ecological. I can tell you you don't even believe this, by the way. If you've got to be, you got to be acting at this point. Why do you think I'm acting? Because you're actually, it's because the reality is so different of the millions of people in China that are literally forcibly held in their homes. The millions in concentration camps, the people that can't even breathe because the air quality is so bad. How about the underground Christians that are murdered in the streets for trying to go to church. So no, continue on your beautiful co op in Beijing, like yeah, we could grow vegetables in Shanghai, so it's so great. That's kind of the argument,
Charlie Kirk Goes Head-to-Head With Ben Carollo
"Then. Yeah. What was the biggest genocide that ever happened in world history? The biggest genocide in it depends how you define a genocide. I would say Stalin's intentional massacre or Mao's intentional massacre of 65 to 70 million people. I don't know. 70 million? Intentional debt. What about the 200 million people that used to live on this continent? Oh, you mean the people that died of natural causes? You think, holy moly? 200 million people you're talking about. It's indigenous. You think they were 100 million people before we came here? Yeah. All living at once. Yeah. Where on earth do you get that number? From anthropologists. So you think we killed them all? From anthropologists, of course, we killed them all. So we killed 200 million people intentionally. Yes. You think, so just to be very clear, right? You're sitting here, denying the genocide of indigenous folks. Teddy Roosevelt is. Oh, you think Teddy Roosevelt's a mass murderer? Yes, Teddy Roosevelt is a mass murderer. What do you think those rough riders did? Who do you think they were killing? They won the war. What war? What war? The war against the commies in Cuba. They don't want war against communist and cuboid. Who's in charge of Cuba right now? Well, the communists. So they didn't win the war then. Well, they won a battle. They won a battle. Wait, we've gone from World War II about the Spanish. They won the Spanish-American War. Okay, okay. So let me ask you a question. They're like, who else did he go to war again? Well, Teddy Roosevelt wanted to know about Peace Prize for brokering peace between the Russians. Care about the Nobel Peace Prize. You don't care about much, honestly, that's real.

Post-Roe, Women Discover How Their Employer Influences Abortion Access
"Abortion providers and patients across the country have been struggling to navigate the evolving legal landscape around abortion laws and access I'm Ben Thomas with the latest Texas clinics have been turning away patients rescheduling them and now face canceling appointments again after the Texas Supreme Court blocked a lower court order late Friday that had given some confidence to resume abortions The state had left an abortion ban on the books for the past 50 years walrus was in place but a Houston judge on Tuesday reassured some clinics they could temporarily resume abortions up to 6 weeks into pregnancy Texas attorney general Ken Paxton quickly asked the state Supreme Court stocked with 9 Republican justices to temporarily put that order on hold which it did Friday night In Florida a law banning abortions after 15 weeks went into effect Friday
Woman Killed While Pushing Stroller With Baby
"But why is it that every time these situations happen, they go and burn down a community and protest? But then in that same community, a black man can be murdered by another black man or a black woman can be murdered by, for instance, I think this is in New York, young lady pushing a stroller down the street, got into a confrontation with a baby daddy, and he smoked her. I believe in broad daylight. Where's the protest? Where's the crying and screaming and burning down the community over the death of the innocent young woman? Who was pushing her baby in a stroller? Oh, yeah, Elliot don't matter. Oh, I forgot. It wasn't police officers. And he wasn't a thug. And she wasn't a thug. But this kid supposedly got pulled over at 1230 a.m.. That's in the middle of the night. What justification do you have for fleeing police? What justification? I've been black my whole life and not one time have I ever imagined that it's totally normal to flee from police officers.
What Time Is It in the Conservative Movement?
"What time is it? In the conservative movement. I believe that is the most operative question we can ask, what time is it? Tell me unpack this is a very wise man, someone I've known for quite a while, and I check his Twitter feed often for how he is analyzing things. Mike zerner, Mike, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. My pleasure, man. How are you? Good. It's been a while, so let me ask the question, what time is it? And how should we, how should we respond to our leaders unable to answer that question? Well, I mean, what time it is is the surprise, you know, Ben Shapiro did a thing with Jeremy boring with their event, the night where they said, nobody thought roe versus wade would ever be overturned. I would have bet anything. Anything that it never would have been overturned. And I don't mean that in a negative way, just predictably. Nobody ever thought this would happen with the law school 20 years ago. The idea that roe versus the way was going to be overturned was always always a pipe dream. So I think when you think about these things, you always want to think about the spiritual lesson. More so than the current event you always want to contextualize it and it just shows the power of people never giving up, right? That really is the lesson that I took from this is because if you'd asked me, hey, lead the charge against roe versus wade, I would say, well, but she's not going to happen. I got other things to do with my day. She's not going to happen. No offense. You know, all love for you. But just it is what it is. And that's why you just you can just never give up. When you have the left certainly not giving up. But I think that's the lesson here is you have to keep the pressure on people. You have to be unrelenting. You have to keep demanding that the judges, the judicial appointments matter, the that really is a lesson that you can't ever give up on anything

What a Disappointment Rep. Peter Meijer Turned Out to Be
"Couple summers ago and turning point action was starting a series of super Saturdays, turning point action did a series of door knocking, campaigns across America, organized by the great Tyler Boyer and the whole turning point action team separate from the educational ventures of turning point USA. So I remember I was in Chicago and I drove to Grand Rapids, Michigan. That's not an easy drive for those of you that have done it throughout the night because the next morning we are starting our door knocking for a certain candidate in western Michigan. I got up very early and rally the troops and told everybody that in western Michigan, we need to put our forces together to go get a certain person elected by the name of Peter Meyer. Now mind you, I don't know why we endorsed Peter Meyer largely because I thought it was a flip district or something like that, a way to kind of gain ground. But what an incredible disappointment and let down. Peter Meyer in western Michigan has become. He has become a camera seeking attention grabbing self righteous congressman who voted for the impeachment of Donald Trump was like one of the first things he did right out of the gate. He sprints to try to go on cable television at every single corner imaginable. And he's someone I have very little respect for. And he's got to go and he's got to go right now. And there is a great candidate running

Why Dennis Was Very Moved at a Recent Daily Wire Event
"Last night, 3000 people, the vast majority of whom were young. In other words, I would say under 35. Certainly under 40. To the great credit of daily wire that sponsored the event that's the Ben Shapiro organization. 3000 people. Again, mostly young. And Ben and his daily wire are associates all terrific guys, many of whom have been guests on my show, had a dialog. Then there was intermission. Then I was introduced, we Ben and I spoke, then we had Jordan Peterson, he was introduced. The people did not expect the people did not expect me, and they did not, they did not expect Jordan, so there was a real eruption of sentiment that applause. It was very, I was very moved in both cases for myself and for Jordan. So then Candace Owens was a Candace Owens. I forgot to mention, was there from the beginning. So yeah, I'm going to ask a good question, Sean asks if there's a video you can watch. You would love it. You would truly love it. I mean, Jordan Peterson Ben Shapiro, Candace Owens, myself, and three, four of his top people at daily wire. It was one of those moments where one of my personal attitudes was expressed itself. And that is, there are two types of temperaments, those who people who want to be stars from those who want to be on an all star team. My own temperament is I want to be on an all star team. So I felt that I was on one last night, and it was, it was a wonderful experience
Brit Hume Rips January 6 'TV Production' Hearing
"Let's start with Britt Hume. Last night on Fox News with Brett bear, I said grab this because he is slamming the Nancy Pelosi one 6 committee after the hearsay testimony of miss Hutchinson cutting them 11. What it did do now that the testimony is being challenged is it shows why it's not a good idea to put witnesses on that without any cross examination or any viewpoints expressed from the other side of the issue when there is another side and certainly it is in this case. This is what the committee has decided it will do. It will put on a TV production, which is what it has done. And it seems to have tripped itself up on that because the testimony is now being disputed openly by the Secret Service. First of all, I said the beast, but it was the smaller Secret Service SUV, but either way, how does this happen in a committee that's that scripted and that laying all of this methodically out, they call this surprise hearing and then they trip on this and it opens the door to critics of the committee from the beginning. Well, I think it's consistently what the committee has done though. When you think about it, they'll call witnesses before the committee and the witness will be sitting there and then the committee will proceed to play excerpts from the deposition, the video deposition of the same witness. It's a very peculiar way to proceed. You know, I've been around Washington a while. I covered the hill for a long time. I don't remember any committee where all the members were chosen by one party, even the minority parties representatives. And they're all on the same page. They all agree. Well, if you don't have any dissenting voices, this is the kind of thing going to happen. Some mistake. After two of the congressmen were turned down, then the minority leader walked away, but it still does not have any pushback. And where does it go from here? No, you need that to have credibility. You need that. And so does it have credibility at the end, do you think? Well, if this blows up, this sensational testimony, which I don't think advanced the ball on the committee's main thesis. But this testimony which everybody was in rhapsody is over yesterday, blows up and has found to be seriously contested and in doubt, I think that will damage the credibility of the committee and his final work product, whatever that may be. Of course, always right

Krystle Matthews Wins SC Primary Runoff Despite Crazy Leaked Call
"Support. James O'Keefe hits home run after home run, and he recently has an amazing one from his project veritas action as well, and yesterday I think was his birthday. James, welcome back to Charlie Kirk show. Great to be with you, Charlie. What a big story this isn't South Carolina. Tell us all about it. Well, this is a democratic candidate for the United States Senate, running in the primary, the primary was last night, June 28th, which is also my 38th birthday, so quite a bit. It's also Elon Musk's birthday, by the way, June 28th is quite a day. And this is the crystal Matthews using racially charged language while encouraging illicit campaign tactics. She was caught on a, in a she was talking to someone inside of a jail. And it was a recorded line and a whistleblower provided this to us. Some of these quotes are pretty incendiary. This is the candidate. And by the way, she won last night. So now she's going to face Tim Scott. The South Carolina U.S. senator in the general election. She said, quote, where's my dope money, my duffel bag boys? Give me that dope money. Honestly, and I'm an N word at heart. I love black people. We need folks that can wear black at night and take down their effing yard signs. I mean, just this is just some of the most shocking things you'll over here. Now, just this week, yesterday, the house legislator in South Carolina has put together an ethics committee to investigate this woman who has just won last night the primary in South Carolina. And a lot more to say, but that's the
Jim Hanson and Amanda Milius Discuss the J6 Show Trial
"Hey folks, it's Jim Hansen. I have sitting here in studio. Oblivious to the fact that we just went live because I was talking to my good friend amazing filmmaker and one of the most culturally elite members of the America first crowd, Amanda milius. Welcome. Thank you. I'm so glad to be on in the new spot. Isn't this cool? This is like a crazy show. It is the coolest thing. I know. No, I almost am like not worthy. I would like like I said, I almost wore sweats. I know. You got to do that. On the bottom. You have to have the top here. Yeah, I'm used to just being able to pull it together on the top, and then everything else is like yoga pants, and I'm like, maybe I'll get dressed today. Yeah. Yeah, well, we did it. And we're on the late night TV talk thing. Now, I want to talk kind of production value. Because I don't know if you notice, there is a giant show trial propaganda fest for the invented insurrection going on. That was pretty, I mean, yesterday was, there are some really good memes created out of yesterday. Like if a day creates good memes. It's a good day. So yeah, it's us. It's our team winning. Yeah, there was this one where like, I think they had like shots from one of those White House down or something movies or and then they had, I mean, it was so with the beast. The grass, like, that's basically what she was describing. I mean, it was absolutely insane. And good on them. But I want to kind of get into your area of expertise because the left decided when they were going to have these show trials that they were going to hire a TV news executive to stage them. Tell us super cool. It tells you a lot. And then you've got legs zelensky going on like every meeting with every celebrity he possibly can. You're like, man, this guy's got a lot of time on his hands 'cause I'm just trying to run a production company, like not run a war. I don't even have time to do that. That's amazing.
Mark Walters: Dems Are Publicly Printing the Names of Gun Owners
"Me just talk to you real quick about this. This broke overnight or at least last night, California gun owners, data breach after state unveils a firearms portal knowing you. I know you know about this story. So talk to us about that a little bit before we get into some of the other topics. Yeah, it was actually the armed American news page that we own that broke that story. They did great work. But here we have, this takes me back, Carl, several years to the Cleveland plain dealer. Many years ago, that began publishing because of their hatred of firearms rights in Ohio and Ohio was passing its concealed carry weapons law. They began printing the names in the newspaper of every Ohio citizen that had a permit so that their friends and neighbors can see who had guns near them. And now we see this happening. So this is not unusual that the Democrats will do this because they so hate the right to keep and bear arms. Is it a leak? A little bit leak is the right word to use. This was intentional. No question about it. So yeah, leak may very well be the right word to use. But when the account when the California attorney general puts this out publicly to shame gun owners because of the state loss because of the New York brewing case, we see the level of hatred that the Democrats push when it comes to our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. They simply don't like it. It doesn't fit their agenda of civilian disarmament and God forbid civilians have the right to keep and bear arms. We're now going to let everybody know who has a concealed weapons license, which leaves these people, Carl, open for identity theft, open for theft, open for burglaries at their home. Robberies, et cetera. So it's a mess, but we expect this kind of activity from the Democrats. They hate us.
Dinesh Addresses the Latest Fact-Check of '2000 Mules'
"The latest fact check on 2000 mules, this is a funny one. It's written by a guy named will Nevin. Assistant professor and program coordinator for communications media. This is actually ironic because we're going to examine his ability to communicate, which let's just say is not superior. But why should it be? He's after all, at Alabama, a and M university. Now, I guess that's where you go after you graduate from night school, Alabama, a and M university, you're a come. I've heard of Texas a and M everyone has, but Alabama and I'm really anyway, every university does have to hire professors and I guess they found this guy somewhere. So he claims the quote experts have thoroughly debunked the claims of 2000 meals blah blah blah. That's just the news world recycled boilerplate. And then he goes, but even though it's been debunked, there's an interesting moment. And he goes, yeah, it doesn't mean the film is without some interesting moments or rather an interesting moment. He finds only one moment in the film that interests him, and what is that? Well, it's a scene involving what in the movie is called dog guy. Now let's imagine the scene here, and I'm just quoting from the movie here. We see a guy with a dog and Catherine engelbrecht says he's got the ballots under his arm, now he's got the rest he pulled out of the bag. You can see all this going on. So clearly something fishy and corrupt is going on. You've got a guy with a backpack of ballots who's pulling them out and stuffing into the box. And then Phillips then says, and he's going to get his camera ready to take the pictures as he puts them in there, and if you consider the brazenness of this, it's in the middle of the day. Now, the professor, this is will Nevin weighs in to say, the film claims without evidence that the procedure for mules included taking pictures of ballots in order to be paid excluding more reasonable explanations like, say, people sharing pictures of their participation in democracy on social

"The resentment and anger would be as disabling and crippling as a physical paralysis at times. I'm not kidding. 'cause she took away my best tool, which, to me, was my mouth and my whip. But who the hell knows how the world works or what God wants? So I calmly went back to letting my little rocks you hear beautiful music. And what happens from all this? She goes on to want to do nothing but write music and sing songs and play her instruments. She goes to a performing life high school. She graduates with honest presidential medal of what have you and a scholarship. You know, was the death of my talk show, the birth of her dream, did God give me gray sky as a heart could be blue? It's just something to think about when you're alone. And you think that the chart you've the trot you've planned has been destroyed or the map has gone missing. You really don't know what's in store. Anyhow, that's a long way of saying, I always associated New Orleans with Mindy Herman. And it's wonderful to be here again and see its beauty and appreciate the southern people and their hospitality. So what does this all lead me?

"A guest starring you felt like they were just a little condescending or like oh you're pretty guest star. Fuck you yeah. Yeah you definitely felt that it wasn't just you feeling that or thinking like it. Would you felt it was warm. Saying yeah and it wasn't exactly that way. It was a show where the lead. I don't think wanted me there. So we did all of her coverage though when they turned around on me. She told me her standing was gonna do her lines. She was going to go home so as wasn't like it was a respect thing it was going to say. I know you're not gonna say who's worth a shot cheese. Can you imagine. I've had other bad you know i did.

And you certainly don't expect that here you can't really prepare for that you'd expect to be in the state of texas power entertain. You shouldn't have to worry about that. Of all places and then we have. Different is sickening to think that was controlled by our current administration. Yeah for the people right. lisa lisa. What's your take on it. I know you were out of power about the same amount of time that i was. So what was your. We knew we were warned. You know we had a time that this was going to be coming and we prepared as best as we could. I mean but when you're without power for over twenty four hours and it's eight degrees outside you can't prepare for that generators you can only plug so much things into and like. I said you know we had lost power and we'll probably out of power for about twelve hours. My parents who live about plo mass from us. hours so we were going to drive over there. S some dinner get.

Twenty emergency things went out to them aretha ahead of time. Excuse for this at all at nope. Kristen what's your expert. All of this. I totally agree with debra and lisa.

"Talking about maximum overdrive directed by stephen came written by stephen king. Based on the story by. Stephen king special guest appearance by stephen king. Yeah it's it is one long uncut rail stephen. Sometimes they come back Gets a movie and becomes a franchise there are like three or four of those Really yeah the. Obviously the second one is called. Sometimes they come back again They keep on coming strawberry spring ledge. The lawnmower man becomes a movie then of the corn and becomes several movies a huge franchise. Yeah and that's i mean i think that's it for the big ones but a as i said like Some of those. Some of those franchises really like children of the corn i think for instance are real iconic like stephen king movie franchises. And what's interesting about children. The corn to is they really take that last little bit that i find so interesting. And that's where the sequels come from you know. The sequel supports are all about like malachi isaya All of their like stuff going on. Yeah all right well. What is our Defense about what. We're disagreements now right so we disagreed on two stories gray matter winge. I did not like very much in you. Did so you get get your rebuttal. What is good about gray matter I don't think stephen king at this point in his career is very good at writing action. I think he gets better at writing action in a general sense. I think right now right for the most part. You're actually doesn't right action. It'll just be like a thing happened more. He'll just offscreen it right so think about Susan norton is that her name in salem. Slot you know. Think about her getting grabbed by Barlow right that's like entirely offscreen And that's a huge action moment of the thing or cody is cody falling in getting impaled jam. No that that's a big piece of action but we just don't see it. It gets offscreen and i think that's why stephen king is good horrors that he knows when to give you the gory. Details and whatnot to but a lot of the time the gory details are kind of after the fact right like. We're witnessing the kind of post mortem if you would go about gray matter to me why i really like it is that it is very descriptive of like what's going on as this man is slowly turning into the blob and then at the end. There's like an action scene of it like or him it the thing Bursting out of the apartment in like guinean. Joel scuffle in a fight. And i see the east. He's dividing splitting in this kind of apocalyptic way So i i like it a lot. I just in general like the story i think like this the the Weights error device right of like. They're learning at the bar. All this information about the guy and like hot dang. Something's going on have intervene. And then it actually culminates. Unlike so much. Stephen king stuff with real action doesn't think it's good. I you know. I like it..

"Yeah. Is it any good for my money. I think that this is the best story in the collection a because i think it is. It's not an ec comics story right. There's some kind of emotion here. But stephen king has also kind of stepping outside of. He's writing in first person. He's writing a an older male character. An old manor. So he's kind of he's giving Voice and he's doing character through voice in a way that We don't see him do a lot having read the mostly the novels up until this point and It's a it's a weird fun little story in the sense that like it. It does that thing that you were talking about at the beginning where it's like. Here's the problem. Here's this here's a couple of elaborations of that problem and then they died Except here it's here's is problem. Here's some elaborations of that problem of i survived but the problem is still out there and i can't stop thinking about the problem. You hundred percent. No i i agree this is a i think it's a great short story. i think this is like i don't know hard to hard to abstract this from what i know obviously about salem slot mine tormented of salem slot but i think that this is for the exact reasons that you just said. I think this is a really good like instructional piece of short fiction of like how to introduce the inciting incident or whatever right but how to introduce the problem and then allow people to kind of talk around it. The stuff where. They're trying to warm the guy up you know 'cause he's walking through the snow and they kinda like are looking back at forth at one another in there like you turned off wear and he's like a back six miles and they're like. Was there a sign us like. Yeah jerusalem's lot there and they just like don't talk about it and they're like you know we know they're like fuck no like all of that is so good. It's such great kind of character writing as as you're saying. Yeah i think it's a great story. The final story is the woman in the room. But as i explained to your michael forgot to read the story so Do you want to summarize the story and The woman in the room is A story about a man whose mother is dying from stomach cancer and she's recently had a procedure that On the one hand is supposed to lessen her pain and on the other hand has kind of ruined her her motor skills in her hand..

Poor on a farm in nebraska. He saved her from falling to her death from a broken ladder in their hayloft. They became estranged as they grew up and the narrator has just received a letter from her where she intimates her decision to complete suicide however the letter was delayed because he never updated her on his addresses when he moved. king connection. here You we just talked about nebraska children of the corn takes place in gatlin nebraska. In fact very close to gatlin nebraska. Because gatlin will get mentioned in a few stephen king stories. I don't think it's necessarily a always like filled with evil children but it's a it's a location that gets named dropped a few times and other places very close to gatlin is a town called hemming for at home where the narrator of the story lives hemming for home is also where a character from the stand lives of mother. Abigail lives outside of hemming for at home. I believe there's your connection rate king geography. Is the story good I think it's it's pretty good. It's not great. It is kind of sad I am not sure what the story is necessarily going for. And if it achieves it but in terms of like you know setting me up giving me the characters in the situation. Like i get and i get why it's sad to i think i think i would describe it. The exact same way that you just described it. And i would say i didn't like it but but you know why it it reads like stephen king trying to do literary fiction. Yes and he's not good at it right like there's not a critique he's he is as we know from the stephen king's the shining he's the master storyteller right i i you know. I don't have problems. Stephen king general sense but Yeah i just don't like this to me is just spinning wheels. The whole time.

"I don't like the story. I don not strongly In by like there's a lot of It's a slow burn for what it ends up being Right it's a. I think the way that you were talking about Sometimes they come back into go right like we do a lot of set up for it to be magic and psychic stuff at the end either I do think it's interesting though. Something that that getting to about this point in the collection that i realized is that One it's fascinating. This is the only psychic staff that we see in the bolton. Since stephen king is so obsessed with psychic things in all of his novels true And so i. I thought that was interesting in. It's not really like t k or anything like that right it's like mind reading And in you kind of made me think right you know. There's something about certain ideas. That stephen king has that will carry a novel for him. Were other ideas. Just won't carry a novel. And i'm curious about if we're going to start seeing more patterns of that going forward ryan like plagues in disease. Carry novels for stephen king we. We're gonna see that quite a few times You know the stand and after telekinesis is like a mover plot will carry a novel for him but like some of these more absurd ideas. I guess just can't now know they're not the engine or even if they show up and so it's interesting to me like what ideas about the world become a central motor. That will drive a plot for stephen king where he just doesn't even attempt at with some other stuff or he doesn't and it doesn't work out. We'll review those books to children of the corn achie- bird owning couple on the brink of divorce. Turn off the main road. It ended up deepen the corn. They run into a fundamentalist cult of children who worships kind of corn. God there's also some logan's run in here That's it. They get sacrificed to the corn. God at the end The kinky thinkers quote The this is perfect king. This like king knocking it out of the park with language right because the the kind of thing in question here is that these are fundamentalists. Kids right there. A explaining their religion in the language of fundamentalist christianity but they you know worship the corn god out in the corn It which walks behind the rows. I think is the term used which is great So this is a quote. You know it's going through the mind of the main character is. He's being hunted by these. Feral kids Quote but how could such a thing be kept secret. Could it go on. How unless the garden question approved. And that's like you know. We're talking about like nyla stephen king right like what if god doesn't exist but the god behind the rose does in like it makes the world Or you know..

"Hey if you quit smoking. Here's how you do. It gives them the information of an organization that will Torture his family and him if he continues to smoke he stopped smoking. That's it that's the suffering The king key part of it like every line of this. I think bleeds king. I think that if we were to draw stylistic connection between the short stories and much later. Stephen king this is the place to see it there. Every every kind of paragraph has this like we knew what else was going to happen right there. There's all this implied terror and violence throughout the whole thing because the the people who are doing this are like Former gangsters basically the ideas that It's explain that basically. It's like a nineteen thirties. Mobster died of lung cancer in in dowd this organization to do all this stuff to people to make to help them quit smoking right. So it's like using the mobs means of intimidation and violence and all this stuff in or for a good social cause but but there's this kind of like humorous. The the thing. I said there is. That's funny that's weird right And stephen king is is he knows that. So there's a little humor in it a little bit of Of implicit horror. I don't know. I think it's a great short story. I really enjoy it Yeah i think. I think it's you know very economical very interesting. Yeah i agree. I don't think anyone else would ride it. No supernatural stuff It's almost like a little bit of a king doing a little bit of like a hitchcock parody or something and now it feels yes Good store i know what you need.

"The story fucking rips is so good in it's good because of the mechanics of it right like the laundry machine gets haunted becomes haunting or or is possessed by demons actually right Because of like a baroque series of events. And what. I really like about that or like about the story is that it uses the mechanisms. That will that. We've pointed out right in carry and in salem slot in order to kind of demonstrate how it gets haunted right so this narrative voice sometimes like bounces out of the story to tell us about like basically the accidental summoning ritual. That occurred in the laundry machine. is just great. It's a great story. It's it's great. It's just like this person. Like cut their thumb and blood got on the thing and then this person happened to like drop their pills in the pills had this particular compound which was used in demon summoning rituals in the fourteenth century. And it's great and there's a a college professor who liked drops everything and becomes demon overnight. He s yes. The the main character is the police inspector and he lake has a friend that he sees cookouts. Who's this college professor. Who likes like literally like from one scene to the other he starts out. He's a college professor and he's just like That reminds me of some demons so many rituals the next time they see each other. You've got a demon that laundry machines son. It's great but yeah i agree. I think this is like i know that the mangla up like culturally like a silly idea. You know regularly. I think actually people brought that up with us when that came upon. Waypoint awhile back here to report. The story is good. Yeah that's the. that's the thing. Is that the movie is like huge goofy and conceptually very weird but like winston link. The thing about stephen king right is that when he is firing on all cylinders. You will believe that a laundry machine can be haunted when everyone else was starting to make you believe that a man could fly civic putting all his energy into make your leave. A laundry machine can be haunted. The boogeyman michael michael. Michael michael the middleman. A traditional american man's children die one by one because he cannot be anything other than a traditional american man. the boogeyman is getting them. Yup he's like in therapy and just being real jackass about everything right. So it's like he can hear children crying at night you know because they're being attacked by figure in the closet the boogeyman but he can't go and help them because it would make them week And you can't listen to his wife because that would make him look weak right. So it's like stephen king you know Very two dimensional Being like the nineteen sixties. American man is insufficient. I need to work on a maine accent. So i can start doing stephen king for the record Every time you try to do a voice on this show where you're like doing one of stephen king's little little main hicks and you put on your southern accent. My my wife who is a new englander will be listening and she'll just be like that's not an accident is.

"We're we're beginning the very body you know if if our vertical thing here is like capability of writing right if our wise capability of writing then our x is like age right starts at bottom and that's like zero thru ten. Stephen king cannot rights to these ages and he'll never figure it out and then it's like eleven through twenty does a great job like a plus all the way at the top and then it's like twenty to thirty five back at the bottom again. Canine manage it. And then it's like someone in their forties and fifties right back at the top. He's doing a great job. Then it's like anyone over the age of sixty right back at the even king cannot manage it and it's like almost perfectly capable. I might. I might make this As a thing and start just populating with characters. Because it's it's kind of astonishing. But i agree i mean when you when you said The desolation that you can feel that you know. I think some of that has to do with that character rabin just such a jackass. He's both misogynist. Andy's like making fun of her for being fat the whole time. And there's something going on with that kind of in the story that actually i think also shows up in it. I think this kind of idea gets revisited against some characters in it But yeah. I think it's really good. I think they were thinking of stories that you could excerpt and just read alone like really talk about and think about. I think this is one of those. I'm the doorway you are. I met me hope. Not because it goes. It goes really poorly for this k. Okay summary mangoes. Space comes back infected with aliens. Hutchingson sue space basically. Wipe the okay No eka you mangoes space. He's part of the the one of the last like manned spaceflights venus for at least a certain administration. He comes back several years later. He has Eyeballs appear oliver's hands and when the those eyeballs open. A bad things happen to other people he believes he is quote unquote the doorway for these creatures from venus coming to kill people and at the end of the story. He burns his hands. He like put them in a Them kerosene birds them To get all these eyeballs in the having okay life in the end of the story this is the ec comics kind of thing. This is the horror fiction kind of part of it. He says he wakes up one day. And he's got a perfect ring of eyeballs in the middle of his chest and so the idea that he's infected with something. Yep The king thing he can think here is that there's a line at the very beginning where they're talking about going to venus and kind of or venus and the quote That's the way that king writes. That is he says. It was like circling haunted house in deep space. And i really like that. Like it's really really good is And there's a little bit of gosh what's the name of the event horizon. Yeah right that's literally a haunted house in space. Yes yes literally the pitch for that that movie. Yeah it's great movies get off track. That moves great But yeah that really did it. Also the other thing is maybe a qinglian negative right. This person Because of the way he reinforced atmosphere. It kills his copilot. And all this kind of stuff. He's in wheelchair throughout the entire thing in. This is deeply offensive. I think to people who use wheelchairs Stephen king cannot. He does not hang. I dunno about cannot but does not write that in a way that is charitable or a nice to people in wheelchairs..

"Ancestral home of an estranged branch of his family only to discover that his ancestors worshiped a monstrous worm god and now live with it in the catacombs beneath the nearby deserted village of jerusalem's lot. What's the king thing here. Obviously jerusalem's lot. This is a location that comes back in the novel. Salems light in fact if you read salems lot. And then you're reading short story You might think that the ancestral home of that the narrator has moved into is the marston house which it can't be because we get a light construction date for the marston house and all this stuff And it's not like the the connections here other than the name of the town. Being the same are pretty slim. Of some of the monsters get cold nosferatu. But they don't act like a salems lot vampires. They act like zombies. But yeah that's that's kind of king as a. I already said of the summary. It's a lovecraft pastiche Hp lovecraft who Famously reuses various cities and locations to kind of build a sustained mythology and his work and we see king doing that. Here is the story. good no i. King is really really bad at writing in the lovecraft. Crafty in style That's not to say he's not. He's bad at writing love crafty and content. Because there's there's actually stories later in this collection that i think do lovecraft better Than than this story does. And it shows you how king can do lovecraft. But i think he gets a thwarted by trying to write in In the nineteenth century antiquarian antiquated mode. there's like a part it like actually one of the more interesting. Bits of the story is wind. The narrator 'cause you're reading his diary of fines a his his ancestors diary from the the eighteenth century. And so you're reading a diary within the diary. Accept the the eighteenth century. Writing is the nails on a chalkboard bad. Like i don't know how people wrote in the eighteenth century and so i'm just going to capitalize random nouns and try to make it seem really really old but anyway yeah it's it's kind of. It's not great. I don't like it. Unfortunately i agree with you I in my memory really enjoyed the like. I enjoy the concept of the story. A lot right. It's got all the pieces. I like a lot right. It's got this kind of dracula form right. This epistle larry novel form of letters back and forth. and also. that's obviously lovecraft. Does that kind of stuff too but i think that king is is melting or trying to mel those styles in interesting ways. He's not successful. I think you're right. I don't think he manages to do it. i think.

"It's it's gonna be something i tried to. I tried to write winston summaries. It's hard to do. But but i guess the other thing as i am. It's obviously clearly. I'm master summarizing. But the the thing i found interesting is that stephen king kind of works because a lot of stories have just a thesis statement. You know what i mean like. That's the whole story. The the whole thing is really just writing some additional words about the thesis statement right. It's not like very rarely does or do for example characters. Change over the course of stephen king story right shorts asked. Yeah and that's the thing that. I think we'll probably get to write. Is that his his story. Stephen king's stories have a lot of continuity with the novels. But then they're also a like they're very different in the sense that They are almost totally like pre miser plot at this point at least i think he starts doing other things later Where he gets into character in short story But these are just like you know pure conceptual plot. Yes i think that maybe that also has to do to with just how many of these these stories. I think people are going to be really surprised. By how many of these stories have become films and film franchises. And things like that. But it's you know they're all very what we call the film industry high concept right which is like you know. They're robots in disguise right high-concept for the transfer right like whatever they do and whatever happens after that is really secondary to robots in disguise oil. Derrick workers go and blowup up your high concept right. They're bad boys miami high-concept and that's how a lot of these work to And i think you could see really easily how they would get pitched right like their trucks and they take over the world and that's the other thing too. Actually i think probably touch on to. Is that a lot of these. Are i've talked in. Previous episodes about king's love of like e c horror comics tales from the crib and And these have a lot of that kind of flavor to them of. Here's a situation with a character you're not supposed to care about too much And something bad is going to happen to them and it's going to be delicious in ironic win a chilling or whatever Or you know in in other ways more twilight zone. Although i don't think he necessarily i don't think many of these stories get into the the sort of like philosophical mood that the twilight zone is known for but I don't know. I think there's i think there's some stuff here the edges in that direction. So yeah yeah for sure.
