"Victor Davis Hanson, one of the most important writers of our time, an important piece in the great American greatness on the great American greatness website. About bankman Sam bankman fried. I never heard of until the Ponzi style scheme of what is it $32 billion how much? I think it's 36, but 36 billion. So is this like the biggest ripoff monetarily speaking in American history? Bankman freed is merely one in a long line of Bay Area social justice hypocrites and frauds. They share in common loud but cynical left wing politics.
Finally, Great News for Mayor Giuliani and Victoria Toensing
"Jennifer, Victoria town Singh, welcome back to mark the first one on one. Oh, it's always great to be back here. Need to be with you. Why was anybody surprised at president Trump made that announcement? Before yesterday. I mean, people were asking me, is he going to is he yeah, he's going to. Of course. You guys would have surprised, right? No, no, not at all. All right, let's start with some very, very good news that we managed to preview yesterday before you're right. You got some very good. Well, you didn't receive good news indirectly you found out about some good news concerning you in America's mayor. So please share. My lawyers got a letter that the case was over. It was oh, good. So tell us what happened to you and how it all fell apart for Biden's DoJ. Yeah, let me give you a quick background. In 2019, Rudy Giuliani called me and said, I'd like you to represent the prosecutor general, which is like the equivalent of attorney general. Of Ukraine because he's coming to me for representation. I have conflict. I represent Trump, but would you please do it? Because he wants to provide evidence of Biden, family corruption in Ukraine, and also Victor shoken, who Biden got fired because he was investigating burisma and Hunter Biden. That absolutely infamous moment, that video whereby he says. I'm going to hold back this $1 billion credit loan from America unless you fire Victor shokin and then Biden says son of a gun. He fired him. So so clever. So they were coming to say Biden's corrupt. And at that time, Rudy and I didn't think Biden would run because of all of this stuff that we had. And then representation never came through because there were threats and we were going to go to Ukraine to talk with them and the U.S. ambassador. Yovanovitch said she wouldn't protect us if we came. And so forth. So the U.S. ambassador said you're on your own. Right. And there's threats against you. The same U.S. ambassador, by the way, I'm sorry. That's the fight. We're going down rabbit warrens already, but the same use ambassador who we found out illegally tasked the State Department to monitor the social media council. And including my account, John Cena. John Solomon, Donald Trump Jr.'s because I guess that's what the State Department does monitor U.S. citizens. So what did that all develop into? So I didn't think anything more of it. They representation never came through. And I continued with my life. And so you can imagine my surprise. In April of 2021, when Merrick Garland and Chris ray sent the FBI to my house, our
Jen Kirkman Highlights How Voters Need to See the Bigger Picture
"Something heartening to you about my mom in the political realm. My mom is technically pro life, I guess, but when I explained to her, the abortion ban, I said it's not quite about killing babies, not that she's that radical, but I said, you know, my mom took the birth control pill in the 70s, which helped cure her endometriosis, which helped me get born. And I said, if they let this happen, they're going to come for birth control. And she said, well, that's not their business. And I said exactly. Now, whether or not you love abortion or not, it's really about looking big picture and about what they're trying to do and how they're trying to keep women at home, and that really it was a 5 minute conversation. And she really got it. I don't know how she's going to vote. What? Should Catholic? She's capital. Yeah. But, you know, she's voted Democrat before, but I think I don't know if I don't think she'll vote Republican. I think she just wouldn't vote or she'll vote Democrat. But I do feel like that little conversation with her she really heard it. And I'm lucky that she's not a combative angry right winger. But I think people have started to learn that it's not just about this issue. It's about a privacy issue, a slippery slope. I think people really are getting it.
How the Abortion Ban Seems to Have Affected the Elections
"Anita and sanitizer. You're wrong with Jen. Hi. Hello. Hello. I know somebody. Hi, I know somebody ate my mother in law. She never voted Democrats. And she voted for beto because of the abortion thing. Wow. Okay. She's like, 70, 75 years old and she's never go to Democrats, but that was just a typical woman. A lot of I was going to say somebody said that on our show that they think there's going to be a lot of that vote of women telling their husbands, oh yeah, yeah, I'm voting Republican, but that may not, right? Yes, especially in these red states who are actually feeling it right now. Yeah. You know, I can't imagine, you know, we hear stories all the time about these women who are being turned away from hospitals who are bleeding, or and also Anita the youth vote. I just saw these lines that university of Austin yesterday that were amazing. I mean, just what we're seeing provably from early voting in youth turnout is really good news. Well, that's what I'm hearing. And for my daughter. And oh by the way, and she was out of her apartment, you know, student housing. And nobody sees young guys that were like 18 or 19 out there. And they were playing basketball. And she heard one of them turn to the others and say, have you voted yet? So, you know, I mean, that's not something the 18 and 19 year olds usually talk about.
Victor Shi on How Restrictive Voter ID Laws Are Affecting Young Voters
"Victor, to what degree is the speaking of Texas, then doing stuff like making sure you can use a gun ID, but not a student ID to vote. I mean, to what degree do you think that's going to affect things? And I guess that's the problem. We've got to get the levers of power back to change things that are blatantly discriminatory like that. And that's one of the things that I've been seeing in the data overwhelmingly the two states where you're seeing young people turn out far lower rates than 2018 are Florida and Texas and part of the reason why I think that is because they have voter ID laws that are surgically targeted to make it harder to vote. Voter ID law voter ID law is just like you said where just because you have a student ID doesn't mean that you can actually vote because it's not an acceptable form of ID. Things like getting rid of college campus centers so that voters have to go to a campus, I guess, go to a vote voting ill patient further away. I mean, all of these things are so designed to keep people from the polls. And those are also the states where you're seeing young people just turn out in high numbers. Well, I don't have a car or they don't have a license from the state that they're, you know, universities in, they have it from their home state.
Victor Shi's Analysis of Young Voter Turnout for the 2022 Elections
"I'm just saying, Victor, you have been very happy clappy on the twitters and elsewhere. But, you know, yours is based on actual numbers. Yesterday, you said, let's look at what we're seeing with one day left in the following battleground states turn out among young Democrats as far higher than at this time in 2018. And you went through, you know, Georgia, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, the actual numbers and said, young Democrats are turning out, but then you said you tweeted but young Republicans in the following battleground states are turning out at far lower rates than in 2018. You list Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Texas. You said bottom line young Democrats are showing up young Republicans aren't. And that's dragging down the average, right? Yeah. I mean, that's one of the most fascinating things that I'm seeing. So we've been going through some currently in D.C. with a group called voters of tomorrow. And I've been going through the data and target early, which is the platform that we use to kind of accumulate all our data. And it's fascinating because what you see kind of alluded in that tweet is you have young Democrats turning out in really, really high numbers, far surpassing the numbers of 2018 and key battleground states, only in a couple of states are young Democrats turning out. And fewer numbers. But those states, you also see young Republicans turning out at far lower numbers than 2018. And so it's interesting because overall the youth turnout rate is slightly lower than 2018, but that's mostly because of young Republicans staying home, which I think is really interesting.

What Is It to Be a Man? Professor Victor Davis Hanson Weighs In
"Is it to be a man? Let me just make it as succinct as possible. Perhaps you could share with us Hellenic conceptualizations of what other non negotiable aspects of being a true man. Well, first of all, there are certain innate responsibilities. And that is, I think, all of us to the degree you can perpetuate the species and that means marrying and if you can have children you do and you protect your family and whether you like it or not, the males role is to protect the family first and foremost. So if you're in your home and you hear a noise at night, you don't have your wife go out there while you stay in bed. Or if your children come home from school and they say they've been attacked on the bus, then you were the one that goes investigates that. So that's the first primary without security for the family. There's nothing. And that's the males point of view. And then the second thing I think is very important is that certain people have to speak up when the majority is wrong or when there's consensus. And that requires punishment or victimization or attacks on you, and it very important for an element of masculinity. The heroic tragic view is that no one's going to speak up, but I'm a man and it's my duty to do what's right. And that was the essential of all sophocles plays. In fact, it wasn't even necessarily male at sometimes. What was brilliant about sophocles? He transformed the male instinct to do that in an Ajax and put it in antigone. And you see it in the western with Shane or high noon, somebody has to stand up and stand down the posse. Some has to deal with leave more of an in the man who shot liberty balance. Somebody has to come in out of nowhere and deal with them with the bullies and Shane. And usually that's a solitary man, and that's the idea that no matter what your own circumstances, somebody has to stand up and take the punishment for being right.
The Driving Force of the Assault on Manhood With Victor Davis Hanson
"If you had to choose which of the sources, the focal points of the assault is most damaging, is it academe? Is it wokeness? Is it the assault on faith the assault on family? Is it third, fourth way, feminism? What is the epicenter, the driving force of the assault? If you had to choose one. If I happen to do one, I was suppose is the university. That's where all bad ideas start and they start with the premise that their leisure, and their affluence that allows them to have a pretty soft, critical life of other people, is basically the result of the work of men from Greece through the Roman period, the renaissance, to the enlightenment, to America. And so they target particular men that they hate. They hate the founders. Can not stand the founders. They can not stand Jesus Christ. They can not stand Socrates. So in their way of thinking, even though they enjoy the elements, they take it for granted of market capitalism, reason, individual freedom, constitutional government, scientific inquiry divorce from superstition, and that's what make them that's what made them who they are. They hate the people who gave them that and for some reason they focus on men. Men, men, men did it. And each group then says, well, I want to live in the United States. I'm risking my life to come across the border or I'm a feminist corporate mover and shaker, but I don't like these white men who created this society which I indulge in.
Victor Davis Hanson Comments on the Cultural Assault on Masculinity
"How serious what is the magnitude of that assault is somebody who understood through time the role that men have had in from antiquity to modern western civilization, how serious is the assault professor? Well, if you do this, if you assault the idea of masculinity for 20, 30 years as we have been doing in the schools and you suggest that men are capable always of sexual harassment sexual assault, white men and particular exercise dualities of privilege, then what you do is you've disconnected an entire demographic from mainstream activity in what I'm really worried about is that the fentanyl crisis, this higher incidence of male suicide, especially failure to, I guess we would call it almost failure to advance prolonged adolescence, tocqueville warned us about that. So all of us in our families have this phenomenon that we've never experienced before of nephews or children or friends that are late 20s, males, they date, but they don't form lasting bonds. They don't marry. They don't buy a home. They don't have children. And they're disconnected. They were either prolonged adolescence or and these are, this is the conservative manifestation, but on the liberals manifestation, you see the pajama boy stereotype, these very elite young urban metrosexuals who are not engaging in the body politic. They're not buying a home. They're not confident. They're not getting married. They're not having two or three children. They're not coaching little league. They're not being examples. So, and then it's been disastrous in the African American community as well.
Sebastian Is Joined by Victor Davis Hanson to Discuss Masculinity
"To our special manhood professor Hansen. Thank you for having me. All right, so I can't think of a better guess to have given what you've written about Ancient Rome about the warrior spirit, the two world wars dedicated to your relatives. So seminal to your life who gave theirs in World War II, let's start at the beginning. I just have a handful of questions. The first one is, is masculinity is the concept of manhood in trouble in western civilization today. Yeah, I think it is. I mean, we always hear it now with its adjective toxic toxic masculinity. It's never just masculinity. It's so it's contrary to a lot of special interest groups and it's been manipulated and worked as sort of the driving impulse behind capitalism and western dominance, et cetera, et cetera. So, but remember all of the criticisms of masculinity come from an elite class in the United States and Europe as well. It doesn't come from the masses of any race or particular even gender. So everybody understands that traditionally masculinity was a very positive and necessary element of civilization.
Charlie Welcomes Michael Walsh, Editor of 'Against the Great Reset'
"Joining us now is Michael Walsh, author of against the great reset, 18 theses contra the new world order with contributions from Victor Davis Hanson Douglas Murray, roger Kimball, Angelo codo villa May he rest in peace. James poulos, Conrad black, Michael Anton, David Goldman, Janice, John tyranny, Harry Stein, and more and edited by Matt Walsh. That's a really great list. My goodness. Michael Walsh, welcome to the program. Hey, thanks, Charlie. Good to see you again. Yeah, you too. Tell us about your book. Well, it's not edited by Matt Walsh. She said it by Michael balls. I have a problem being confused. I'm sorry. I say it so often, so I apologize. I know you do. My young colleague, the idea behind the book is a direct attack on the great reset. And I know Charlie, you've talked about it a lot and many of our colleagues and conservative movement have talked about it. But very briefly, it's an idea that arose at the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland. It's been kicking around for some years now and generally on the left. It's been dismissed by our ideological opponents as a conspiracy theory. And yet the World Economic Forum under the direction of Klaus Schwab is quite open about their ambition for the world, which is to put it in a nutshell, you will own nothing and be happy. So as we said, as I say, the introduction to this book, this is our salvo opening salvo against Davos against the great reset against Schwab against their plutocrats who would keep all of us to basically confined to high rise buildings, driving electric cars, whether if they allow you to have them, and of course eating bugs instead of beef because after all, cows are killing the planet.
'Defenders of the West' Author Raymond Ibrahim Shares His Background
"Raymond Ibrahim, welcome to the program. Hi, Eric. Great to be with you. Thanks. Don't be nervous that you're sitting in for John's mirac. Others have done it before. Many of them have died, violent deaths. But I'm just saying, just put that out of your mind. But when John's mirac raves and raves about someone, it's really not difficult to us for us to understand, we need to get this person. And so we're just really grateful to you for coming on. And tell my audience a little bit about yourself. I mentioned that you're the author of a brand new book called defenders of the west, the Christian heroes who stood against Islam. What is your own background? I know you have an Egyptian background as well. Yeah, so my family is the cops Coptic every time I say that word coughs have to people ask me what precincts I come from, but cops Coptic of course the indigenous Christians from Egypt so my parents immigrated to the United States in the mid 60s. I was born and raised here. Because of that background being coming from a Christian minority sect from the Middle East, surrounded by Islam. I was always interested in, of course, in those issues, but then in college, as you mentioned, Victor David saints and was my professor for many years and I'm proud to say a friend and mentor and so forth. I naturally gravitated towards history, military history, and then long story short in 2001 when I was writing my master's thesis with the Victor Davis as Victor David Sanchez my chair. It was actually about the first military encounter between Islam and the west for really Christianity, Christendom. And because I was employing the languages I was studying, Arabic and Greek and so forth. And anyway, long story short, and then that's when 9 11 happened and I went to Georgetown university, studied there for a little bit in their contemporary center for Arab studies, which is, as I later found out, it was very ideologically charged. And I left there. Despite stellar performance, I might add straight age, but I had to leave there just because of the political reasons and then I got a job at the Library of Congress in the near east section where I dealt with Arabic materials and other Middle Eastern languages. Sounds writings by Al-Qaeda in the early 2000s and long story short. That got translated into my first book, the Al-Qaeda reader,

"victor" Discussed on ESPN Daily
"A pretty good player also. So what is the next step for Victor in specific, right? Is all of these teams are gonna be angling for his services and the services of these kids, these prospects at the very top of this draft class, which is a special one. Where do we see him next? Like, where does this kid who refuses to bench himself who seems to really embrace like that mamba mentality notion? For better and for worse, where do we see him play the next time? Well, he's back in France now in his season resumes on Saturday. They play at Le Mans 8 o'clock that's 2 p.m. eastern. You can watch the games for free online. Streaming and when it surprised me if they kind of go a little bit more all in with their streaming package and up the quality of it. But yeah, he's got games pretty much every weekend coming up from now until the middle of May and then hopefully they're two in one right now. Hopefully they make the playoffs and make a little run here and I think people will watch that. Even though everybody knows how good Victor is, you're still gonna see 20 to 30 scouts at every game of his from here until the middle of May. And then what's next for you, Jonathan, as you are the web on Yama whisperer at this point for ESPN. Nobody has access to him in the way that you do. What's the rest of your life going to be like as we talk here in the second week of October? Just monitoring the Victor show watching every game and enjoying it the way everybody else is going to be. So it's absolutely wonderful just somebody that's covered the NBA draft for 20 years. We've never had a class like this where people are so excited about it in the month of October. Every day I'm getting TV, podcast, radio requests, and the college basketball season hasn't even started yet. You know, in most years, we're just, we're hoping that the NBA finalist ends up being a sweep, so we have 7 to ten days to really milk the MDA draft for all it's worth and hope that our mock drives get it to be on the front page of ESPN dot com and all that. We don't have to do that this year, you know? Like all we have to do is write about Victor and also and scoot Henderson and then Thompson in this whole class is phenomenal. Honestly, one of my big regrets is being the first one to watch Giannis and being really excited about him, but not going all in and saying, oh my God, you guys have to go, you have to get Giannis, you know? Being counted 'cause my tendency is to be skeptical and, you know, just a little bit muted. I don't do like the gushing and a fawning and all that. So with Victor, it comes really easily for me because literally like we've never seen a guy like him before. Yeah, I'm reminded at the very end here, like you're not somebody that I know to gush over prospects in this way at all. I mean, hyperbole is something that it feels like you're on guard for as a matter of doing your job. But here, hyperbole seems to firmly just not apply. It does not seem to be the case that we're overdoing it with Victor wembanyama. I think you have to recognize greatness when it's there. And if you're not, then you're selling yourself short and you're selling the player short and you're selling the fans short, you know? Like, this is something that everybody has to enjoy. And they have to appreciate and they have to follow this because we're literally never going to see a player like Victor win by again. I mean, this is a generational transcendent talent. It's the most unique player we've ever seen come across in the last 20 years of me doing this. And on top of that, he has comes from this ideal background. He has the right mentality as the humility. He has the maturity. He has everything to become a great player. So let's go for it. I mean, why not? Jonathan govoni, thank you for making the case here that aliens are actually real. Thanks, Pablo, great to be with you. I'm Pablo Torre. This has been ESPN daily. And I'll talk to you tomorrow.

"So Jonathan, tell me what it was like to be there. Tell me what it was like inside the arena inside this moment that I am so jealous. You got to experience firsthand. Everybody was just holding their breath. We were just afraid that if you move the wrong way, you might somehow jinx it and screw it up and this thing won't actually happen. Like it's so rare to get these. You should know that Jonathan cavoli is ESPN's NBA draft guru. He is the founder of draft express. He is someone who has been scouting prospects for two decades now. But last week in Vegas, he witnessed something that he had never seen before. Until it actually tipped off, you know, like even during the game, I was like, am I really watching this? This is unbelievable. Hanging. Showing all of the moves. Jonathan was there to watch an 18 year old named Victor wembanyama, whose team had traveled all the way from his native France, to Las Vegas, where he was competing against other top shelf NBA prospects last week. After the first game, I was just walking into the concourse. And I ran into president of an NBA team who has a very high interest level in Victor. Usually a very stoic guy, you really can't get anything out of it normally. And I had never seen the incredibly huge smile on his face.
Lord Conrad Black Shares His Prognosis for Russia
"We have the mass mobilization first. I mean, since 1945, for Russia, we have the impending winter approaching and then of course the explosion of the Nord stream pipeline. There are those who think that there is a negotiated settlement. There is an off ramp that we can provide Putin. I know you've been discussing this issue closely with your fellow podcast colleagues Victor Davis Hanson and Bill Bennett. So what is your analysis of what could be done in the realms of the possible? Yeah, my analysis is a little more optimistic than victors. I agree with him that neither protagonist wants to end where it is right now. But on the other hand, they both wanted to end. And it's terribly onerous for both of them. I mean, Ukraine is suffering casualties and terrible damage to the country. And it's being supplied weapons all right. But you know when wants a war going on in their own country for very long. And in the case of the Russians, and it's obvious there are terrible problems in the Russian armed forces. There's a very high desertion rate. There's great public discontent that have heavy casualties. It's over a 100,000, which would be more than 200,000 in the United States. And they're not getting anywhere. And I think Putin is sort of set out his stall what he would settle at if he could take the four provinces to the purports completely spuriously to a bad next with their approval. But I think you could get something there if there was a real referendum and you redesigned the borders of congressional redistricting. You managed to carve out something around the areas of people who actually voted that they would rather be rushed and then Ukrainian. And you give him that and that's all he gets. And you tell zelensky that you're not you, in this case, being NATO is not prepared to pay for more, but you get an absolute guarantee of Ukraine in its revised borders. And this for the first of several times, all of the people guaranteeing Ukraine's borders, including Russia and all of NATO have to honor their word.
Stacey Abrams Claims She Never Challenged Prior Gubernatorial Results
"So here is Rachel Scott Asking Stacey Abrams cut 7 go Your campaign put out a statement pointing to the legislative victories Since the 2018 election So does that mean that you have faith in the upcoming election and how it will be run And will you commit to conceding If you do not win more votes then governor Kent I have always acknowledged the outcome of elections And what is deeply concerning to me is the conflation of access to the right to vote and the outcome of elections I've never challenged the outcome of the election in my speech on November 16th I clearly stated that he was the Victor And any time I've discussed the outcome and it's always been in the context of what we were able to generate among voters who are used to the system was the problem People can't vote who want to vote It doesn't matter You got drop boxes You got absentee ballots You have early voting You have late voting You have on and on and on but somehow the system is just racist as hell And of course the statistics demonstrate that she's a liar But nonetheless there she is Stacy Go ahead Process But my fight will always be about access I know that heading into the 2022 election There are new barriers that have been put in place That there are senior citizens in disagreement You took the case to a federal judge who was appointed by Obama and he said you're full of crap
Stacey Abrams Claims She Never Challenged Prior Gubernatorial Results
"To play some audio for you. Stacey Abrams. The romance novelist running for governor of Georgia. First of all, she now claims that she never challenged the outcome of the election. This is an interview she just did yesterday. I want you to listen to this. Will you commit to conceding if you do not win more votes than governor camp? I have always acknowledged the outcome of elections. And what is deeply concerning to me is the conflation of access to the right to vote and the outcome of elections. I have never challenged the outcome of the election in my speech on November 16th. I clearly stated that he was the Victor, and any time I've discussed the outcome and has always been in the context of what we were able to generate among voters who are used to not being considered a part of the process. But my fight will always be about access. I know that heading into the 2022 election, there are new barriers that have been put in place, that there are senior citizens and disabled voters who are facing a much more difficult time getting access to absentee ballot application. I will never be silent about the issues of voter access because I believe in our democracy and I believe in our right to vote. I do not question the outcome of the election, but I do question the process. But on this question, I didn't hear an answer to the question. Will you commit to conceding the election if governor camp does have more votes? And I think I answered your question at the very beginning. I acknowledge at the very beginning that he won the election. What I said in my speech that you also want to concede. No, no, no. What I said in that speech is I would not concede a system that would not permit voters to be heard. Good for you, lady reporter. Wow, clearly she didn't go one of the Ivy League journalism schools, but she did a great job there, calling out Stacey Abrams. Well,
Victor Davis Hanson: Why You Should Go Out & Vote
"You listen to Victor Davis Hanson about staying home when somebody says, well, why am I going to bother to vote? I don't know if they're going to cheat or not. I asked Victor Davis Hanson that last year. What do you say to a listener who says to an American who says, guys, we got to get our country back, but I don't know that I trust the election process. Well, that would be like saying that I went on a B-17 mission and we lost too many planes, so we're going to quit because it's not fair up there. That's a reason to go out and vote because if you believe that the left has undue influence in the election, then you have to ensure that you and your friends and everybody else vote in such overwhelming numbers that even the left can't figure a way out to cheat. So, and I would say that to people who listen to my show who don't agree with me politically, if you're a Democrat, if you want the Democrats to keep control of the House in the Senate and you're all right with surging crime and the out of control inflation and the open borders and all the mess that we're facing as a country, hey, you should vote too. I want us to win. I want the Republicans to win, but the Democrats want to win too. And I get that. I respect that. We need to make your voice heard by going to the ballot box and voting. And that means every single American who's eligible to vote should vote, period. Republican Democrat independent, I don't care.

Victor came through for them. They could do what he knew they had been hoping to do since they saw the bull. Dig in. The rest of the animals rushed forward, and as cheek approached, Victor held out as Paul. What did cheek think he was doing? She had all those principles he was going on and on about, maybe he could eat those instead. Cheeks said that Victor couldn't be serious. Victor called out to the wolf, and the Tiger nearby. Hey, if his brother approached the court at all, the court had Victor's permission. No. His blessing to eat him. Cheek watched

"Though? Why would lively do that? Rusty asked, almost as soon as Victor dropped the accusation, Victor said that all he was just a lowly jackal, he didn't die to understand the complex inner workings of the minds of his betters. What he did know, though, was what he heard. And what he saw. Rusty asked, okay, what did Victor C? Victor pointed all around the lion. He saw a lot fewer animals for one. It was true. The story says that when you don't pay your workers well, you can't expect them to stick around. The court under the bang entry had dwindled after the lion's topped leaving behind kills for them to eat. Victor said that this new relationship with lively had alienated rusty from the rest of the jungle. He worried that it was by design. Rusty said that that was impossible. He and lively were friends. He had given lively his word that the bull would be safe in the jungle. Victor shook his head. Sometimes people could be so ungrateful. Like the ungrateful man rusty didn't know what the jackal was talking about with that one. Cheek, who was standing nearby, rolled his eyes, and Victor started in on a story. The human, named sacrifice, was having a hard time supporting his family. So he was on a hike. His wife had told him he better come back with some food for the children or don't bother coming back at all. I don't know. I feel like you're just kind of running away from your problems. Like, how much food are you going to find in the Woods? The Tiger trapped in the pit in front of him asked. Sacrifice, the human, nodded, fair, true. Maybe he was just trying to escape his problems. What do you think monkey? The monkey climbed on top of the Tiger said and said that he agreed with the Tiger. Sacrifice, the human hiker needed to be honest with his wife, sure, but most importantly, honest with himself. The snake among the leaves in the pit said that it was only by revealing our true selves that we can be fully known. And it was only by being fully known that we could be fully loved. Sacrifice smiled. True, so true. Can you let us out of here, please? The human cowering at the other side of the pit asked. Sacrifice smacked himself on his head, sorry, yeah. His bad. Absolutely. He found a downed tree, and lowered it into the pit. Regular life of pi situation you all had going on down there, sacrifice that as the Tiger, the monkey, the snake, and the human, climbed up the tree, and out of the pit. The four were so grateful that, before they parted ways, they all talked to sacrifice directly. Tiger said that he would repay sacrifice. If sacrifice came to his mountain lair, he didn't want to drag a debt into the next life. Monkey, snake, and the human all told sacrifice where they lived. And the human added that he was a goldsmith. If sacrifice brought him some gold, he would work it into any shape the man wanted for free. Sacrifice that he had just explained how he was having a hard time feeding his family, but sure, if he came across any gold, he would stop by. Sacrifice shook his head. This guy anyway, sacrifice continued on and didn't find anything on his wanderings. On his way back through the forest, he remembered the animal's invitations. He stopped by monkeys place first, and the monkey, beaming, said that he had hoped the human would come, and gathered extra fruit. He piled sacrifices sack full, told him any time he needed more to stop by and led sacrifice to the tigers place. In the mountains. There, they saw a corpse. I was hoping you'd stop by, the Tiger, munching on a human, said to sacrifice. A rich guy had gone right through the mountains, and the Tiger ate his horse, and he was working on the rich guy now, but he didn't need any of this shiny junk. The Tiger gestured to the sacks of gold and jewels. Did sacrifice want it? Sacrifice accepted the gift. Mainly because it was way too many riches, but also because he didn't want to offend the Tiger pickiness teeth with a collarbone. He dragged the riches off home. That night, the family ate the fruit. And in the morning, sacrifice took some gold to the goldsmith he had rescued, so the guy could make good on his frankly kind of selfish promise. The goldsmith looked at the gold like he was sick. Where did sacrifice get this? Sacrifice said he found it. In the Woods, it fell off the back of a horse. Don't worry about it. Could the goldsmith work it into something nice? He wanted to sell it to be super rich. The goldsmith said that's what he did. Sacrifice could come back for it tomorrow. When sacrifice returned, he found the palace guards waiting for him. The gold, it seemed. Had belonged to the prince. The prince who had just gone missing in the mountains. The goldsmith knew because he had made the pieces in the bag. It was obvious. Sacrifice had found the prince alone on the road, murdered him, and robbed him. Sacrifice was fettered and he would be publicly impaled in the morning. That night, in his jail cell, sacrifice heard a noise on the stone. He turned to see snake, the snake he had rescued from the pit. Hey, bud, sacrifice said. Could snake do a solid and bite these ropes freeing him? So you'd still be in a locked prison cell, snake asked? No, he could do sacrifice one better. Later on that night, a cry went up from the palace. The queen. The queen was ill. From his spot in the jail cell, sacrifice could see physician after physician rushing to the palace. But no one could help her. She was dying. The following morning, when sacrifice was dragged from his cell, so he could be publicly kebob, he told his guards that he could do it. He could cure the queen. The queen actually was already cured, but the snake knew how desperate the king would be to save his beloved after the pair just lost their son. Snake had timed his poison just right. So that, when sacrifice merely touched the woman's forehead, she started feeling better. The king embraced the man, weeping tears of joy. But then remembered why sacrifice was there in the first place. Sacrifice needed to explain how he came across the prince's gold. Sacrifice explained the whole situation from his rescue of the goldsmith to the Tiger to the man turning him in for murder. Sacrifice was not only freed, but since he evidently had magical powers, he was added to the king's council and was given a governorship over a thousand villages. The goldsmith was arrested. Good rusty said, ungrateful human, then he gasped. Oh my gosh. You know what I just realized? Sacrifice had saved him in the forest, just like I saved lively and look how the goldsmith repaid him for his kindness, trying to get him killed. Do you think that that could be a coincidence? I kind of don't think that that's a coincidence. Victor shook his head. Wow. You know what? He had never thought about it like that. Rusty made connections he never did. That was incredible. It did kind of remind him of leaping creep, though.

And I think that is ending now. And what's ending now is we're going to a third wave, but it's not going to be kind of like in the 40s or 30s, but which is agrarian society. But it's just mixed up now. Everybody's got it's going to be. I think if we can survive this turmoil, it's going to be more achievement in fact space. And what you actually do, because the market will kind of there's still a lot of good things about a free market economy. It's better than the alternative. And it's going to start rewarding people for, you know, I see it. I'm very strongly against the illegal immigration. But I am very supportive of Mexican American legal immigrants who start businesses. And that is very encouraging. Because they don't care about these things, these credentials. They just want to go out and they want to work like crazy and be successful. And when they see a car, if you were to drive a Bentley onto the Stanford campus, people would make fun of it. If you drove it into Fresno, some guy would come up and say to you, where did you get it? How do I get one? That's a neat car. Don't worry, I'll get one one day. It's a different idea. It's this can do. I like that idea that's can do. My dad was a World War II veteran and he was a farmer, and he was a college administrator, did a lot of stuff, but he always had that attitude. Like he was flying a mission. I want to be 29. Pete's say, I said, I don't think I can go to graduate school. I've only these guys have had a lot in Greek for 20 years. I was only in four. Well, what do you have to do? Let's go do it. Come on, don't chicken out on it. You got it. Your scholarship, you can go do it. You got to be the best. And you'd cry and you say, not cry, but you'd want to say, well, you want to fly 16 hours to ten and drop 20,000 bombs of. They would always play that card. They always do. You we didn't even wear a parachute. What's the use of bay now bailing out over Tokyo and getting beheaded? So that was a reminder to me that that's a good spirit. And that's that frontier spirit we have. I hope we don't lose it. But the immigrants are very good for the United States if they come legally and diverse fashion and in measured numbers that measured diverse with some skills and they will assimilate integrate quickly. En masse, not diverse, illegally, you got a big problem. So for the country, what really quickly, what does that mean like Civil War fracturing? I know you get this question a lot. And then finally, tell us about Victor Hansen dot com. I don't think we're going to fracture because the divisions are within families. They were in the Civil War, but we still have more in common than we do for a while longer. And I think the left, it used to be we're all fighting, and let's just calm down and be friends, but I think people are starting to see that one side is doxxing, as I said, deplatforming and counseling and boycotting and doesn't have and they're doing that because they do not have a majority opinion. So every single issue that Joe Biden is advancing has zero public. I mean, not zero, but it's less than 40%, 50%. So there is a consensus that what we want. Trump, people can say that he was unpopular, but his agenda was popular. So that's what people want. And the left knows that, and they are getting shriller and more hysterical. And they're creating a greater and greater backlash. And when once the middle completes that transformation to reject that agenda will have, I think, better times they have Victor Hansen dot com.

"Show with me. I feel like is a teacher of mine. Someone who I've consumed hundreds of hours of his commentary and content, doctor Victor Davis Hanson. Thank you for having me. I just we were just talking how I finished your World War II course and I was blown away by that and your citizenship course for hillsdale college. And I suppose let's just start there. Tell us about your book, the dying citizen. Well, it's a, it's not a lamentation or a eulogy for the dead citizen because I would have called it the dead citizen. It's a process of dying. And it's an erosion in the traditional prerogatives of a citizen. I think it applies to the western world in general, not just the United States in particular, but it's the suggestion that there's no sharp difference between a resident, legal or illegal and a citizen whether that means voting today or engaging in a campaign. You can be a resident. You can be here illegally and do that. Or military service. The only thing the only distinction that's left really is the ability to hold office, only citizens can do that. But if you're not a citizen, you're a resident, you can come and go as you please, apparently, see in the southern border. You can join the military. You can vote in certain places. I think soon you'll be able to hold off. So I tried to explain the history of citizenship. It was very rare, peculiar, late in history, and 8th century in Greece, fragile, today there's only two or three places that can pull off a multiracial constitutional system, Brazil, maybe India, they don't do it very well. But I was trying to remind people that unless you invest in citizenship and constantly audit it, it's the aberration in history and it will disappear. I think it is disappearing unless we stand at attention and try to do something to save

"No. That's not how it works in football. And it's very dysfunctional. That is one of the things that they're trying to work on. I don't agree with all that. I don't necessarily agree with a cap and commissions. I just try to see more transparency. I think if you want to pay somebody a 100 million, should be free to do so. But let's that Victor explain where they are. When it comes to agents of any profession that I know of, mortgage, mortgages, real estate, there is governance on agents. So if we're able to govern people that sell dirt and how the hell can we not regulate people that trade human beings. Like with all due respect? Because that's what you're doing. You're taking this player from that club to this club, right? And so how are we not regulating that? Regulating means do you have the proper licensing? Do you have continuing education, are the players being protected in the right way? So it's not just everybody's again looking at the cat. There's a lot in there from a regulatory standpoint that is very good and it's good practice. And quite frankly, many, many sports industries have it, right? Many sports industries have it. And. As we know here, and there's no reason why football shouldn't have it. Now the cap is should it be discussed? I want to only to discuss it. But, you know, multiple representation representing, I mean, listen, you know, representing I just don't know how that works when you represent. And the player and the bunch it doesn't make sense, right? So, you know, and also, you know, some of the things we have is clearing off, right? So we've instituted an clarence because we should be we should be our fans have the right to know what these transactions are, right? And so we've instituted a clarent house. One of the things I think that current us will do is again bring back some regulatory thing where the people in the industry, whether it's club league, agent player, that these things have to be done in a proper way before transfers are signed off. I mean, it's no different than any other financial transaction that I'm used to in the corporate world. You know, if I don't do what I need to do, you think the bank's going to lend me money. No chance. But you know it just kind of feels like this is something that also except perhaps agents agree on and yet. Yeah. It is a slow burn. I think, you know, I think other things have kind of jumped in a little bit and it is a slow burn. There's some stakeholders that are more than others. Obviously, the agents probably be in the least, but not always. I have to say that. I mean, honestly, there's been some good dialog. Reasonable people, reasonable, they understand the principles of what we're trying to do. If they might not agree with a number, but I think the principles of governance, I'm not unless you're a real cowboy. I think the principles of governments won't change probably welcoming. Obviously, for Victor in his confederation camp as we mentioned before there's two big giants in MLS and the guy in my case, Mexico and the U.S. and for years and years and years now they've been discussions of what if we merge them to and have a huge league basically.

"Was that, hey, everybody's going to vote in favor of this because see if I make money from world cups and that's money that gets redistributed to the nations. Pink Victor had a slightly more nuanced view on this on the entire planet. Everybody's focusing on one thing, right? The two year World Cup. You know, whereas there's a whole menu of things here that we need to discuss. Primarily the calendar, you know, everything is underpinned by a proper calendar. You know, and the two year woke up, we've given our feedback to FIFA. We these are the questions we need to answer. How does that affect the ecosystem that we currently have in our confederation? Because a lot of things we didn't have 5 years ago on concrete gap, but now we have Nations League a more robust gold cup, a more robust champion state. How does that affect our ecosystem? I'm not going to scream at the top of my lungs to say, you know, it's the worst idea in the history of man. I just want to know, I just need to know this information. And to be honest with you, these are discussions we've had even along the way. We used to have a Confederations Cup, got pulled away. Confederations Cup was a big deal in my confederation, because it gave something to the winner of the gold cup to go to. You know, we even had discussions 5 years ago about a global nation. You know, some of the confederations around the table. And that kind of died down, but, you know, some of those principles were well worth discussing. So I think the principle of having something between the current World Cup cycles that is a national team event that is a FIFA event, whatever you want to call it, I think that principle, I'm not sure too many of the people around the table were rejected. He laid out an idea and you know he was clear to say this, these are my ideas. So if you have other ideas, please share them with me. And it's one thing to say, you don't agree with his ideas. And there's something that I don't agree with. Absolutely. But it's something to just set there and just say you don't agree with it, but not also sort of invest in the dialog because I think as a sport, we need to invest in a dialog. Some of it has to be disruptive as well. Because disruptive dialog has always good. And the sport has a history of that. I mean, look, we still have no substitutes in the game of football. Then we went to one. Then we went to three and now it took a pandemic to get the 5. Right? The slow football moves. We need to survive. We need to have these dialogs. You know, we've been clear with FIFA. We not only said listen, you know, the principles of dialog and the principles that they're trying to change. I think I have no issues with. Do I have issues with certain things? I'll give an example, specific example. On the whole calendar with a 7 matches and one month for us a Concacaf, that's going to be problematic. I want because one month doesn't work. It needs to be spread out a little bit more. And also, you know, right now, the member associations have ten matches a year that their national team can play. Going to 7 is a reduction of 30% on your inventory. Can you tell me any other stakeholder in football that is reducing their inventory by 30%? It's absolutely for me. That's a non starter. Now, reducing the windows that those ten matches are played, that's a different story. Because that then hits on the issue of less travel for the players, mandatory rest period. I'm all for that. And some of the concerns that have been brought forward by a lot of my peers and colleagues are absolutely valid. But I don't feel anyway, that FIFA has rejected those concerns. In fact, I've heard not only arson, but I heard the president say, hey, listen. I'm not here to force anything done anybody. So I have my opinion, but I need to hear from my members. And so I think some members are spoken louder than others. Fair enough. But I think everybody's starting to have their turn, including the stakeholders, clubs, leagues. Whatever..

"Age the dying citizen is the book victor. Since you've permitted victor. I i've been talking in this last year the plague year about hope and about the idea that i believe that The good part of what. We've been enduring Is that many people formerly asleep or waking up. I have been a excited to see a lot of that. People who Realized when things get this bad maybe they should pay attention. Maybe they should change their opinions on things. So i have hope Do you do you have hope. Where do you see things from here. I do have hope. And i. I have a long epilogue because the book was written before two thousand twenty one but i have an epilogue and one of the things that i'm very hopeful about. Is that the traditional. Republican party is starting to metamorphasized. In other words. There were a lot of americans believe in many of its principles but for variety of rational and irrational reasons. They didn't want to be part of the party of mitt romney. For example a decent man nice guy but in their mind representation of a very elite person. That was not concerned when he gave that. Talk for example. Why can't do anything with a forty seven percent all takers and wrote off that part of it. So what i mean in particular is when you see the border crisis and then you see that mexican american communities along the borders are electing conservative representatives. Because they say that's not what we want destroying our communities or where i live in the san joaquin valley california people who are mexican american are saying. I'm not going to be taken for granted anymore. And maybe i'm going to. I'm going to vote for a republican. Because they're not the party of the golf course only anymore and then you see the people who were the elite. And that's what's really striking for me. Eric i when i know a lot of the never trumpers people. I agree with them on a lot of issues on free market economics and opposition go portion in some cases and things like that but they seem to be very angry. That this new party starring to say we're not going to write off the interior of the united states and say we'll go. Golden coding sure fall on. Opiates that they could be very valuable workers. We need them. This is the industrial heart of the world. At one time it can be again and so this new slowly. Transformation of the slow transformation of the conservative movement into one that says all different races all different crees at but our primary focus is not race or religion. It's class and we want a middle class because they are the most practical people and they are the foundation of citizenship. I think it's really spreading. And i think it's slow and we don't really know all of its contours yet. But how ironic that somebody. Who was a crass multi-billionaire let off this explosion and was the first person to say. China is not in our interest to have complete free trade and they will never interpret our magnaminity to be reciprocated and like kind. They'll see as weakness are if we're not gonna go and optional wars in the middle east and take the middle class and send them over there. Because we're gonna be energy independent and we're going to have our own choices or you can't have an open border because it will ruin the wages and the bargaining power of the light labor in muscular classes and you have assimilation intermarriage integration. If you have people come to quickly from one place all of those things were the ingredients of. I think a new a new idea about america and i think as haphazard an imperfect is that metamorphosis is that. I don't think maybe you can disagreement. I don't think we're going to see a candidate stands up and says well trump isn't the mag agendas over. And i think mitt romney had the right idea.

"victor" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"I'm talking to victor davis hanson. Also known as the age the dying citizen is the book victor. Since you've permitted victor. I i've been talking in this last year the plague year about hope and about the idea that i believe that The good part of what. We've been enduring Is that many people formerly asleep or waking up. I have been a excited to see a lot of that. People who Realized when things get this bad maybe they should pay attention. Maybe they should change their opinions on things. So i have hope Do you do you have hope. Where do you see things from here. I do have hope. And i. I have a long epilogue because the book was written before two thousand twenty one but i have an epilogue and one of the things that i'm very hopeful about. Is that the traditional. Republican party is starting to metamorphasized. In other words. There were a lot of americans believe in many of its principles but for variety of rational and irrational reasons. They didn't want to be part of the party of mitt romney. For example a decent man nice guy but in their mind representation of a very elite person. That was not concerned when he gave that. Talk for example. Why can't do anything with a forty seven percent all takers and wrote off that part of it. So what i mean in particular is when you see the border crisis and then you see that mexican american communities along the borders are electing conservative representatives. Because they say that's not what we want destroying our communities or where i live in the san joaquin valley california people who are mexican american are saying. I'm not going to be taken for granted anymore. And maybe i'm going to. I'm going to vote for a republican. Because they're not the party of the golf course only

It all out for you. I think that you know we created that environment here. And the investments we made a wound culture investments. We made specifically to your point as well around the all hands meetings and yeah of course you know often. I p ill sort of agonizing about the investment And what i to profitability right over relatively small company but powerful and that served truly as that sort of you know we pulled over to the gas station re fuel you know we fueled our our tax and an off to the next twelve months and again. It was just no substitution whatsoever. Jim you make the point that they were right on out where you see your your co worker colleague. The guy you were working shoulder-to-shoulder with and because we were pretty virtual to begin with and and we manage through that quite well but when we got together that one time of the year it was special absolutely positively..
