Voices from the Holocaust with Leon Bass
"Leon Bass was born in Philadelphia on January twenty. Third Nineteen, twenty, five, the fourth of six children. His parents were born in South Carolina in the eighteen nineties at the beginning of the Jim Crow era. Just after the first World War they joined the Great African American Migration North they settled in Philadelphia with the hope of making a better life for themselves and their children. As a young man during World War Two Leon volunteered to serve in the United States army. In, April, nineteen, forty, five, he, and four others from his unit arrived at the Humboldt, concentration camp in Weimar Germany just one day after it was liberated. Forty three years later on March Sixteenth Nineteen eighty-eight Leon is sitting in a studio in union new. Jersey. He's dressed in a plaid, Brown and based Sport Code. White Shirt and striped tie. He wears aviator, glasses and sports trim black moustache. Leon's interviewers are Bernard Weinstein and mark lender. Leeann recalls the racial discrimination. He experienced as a child in Philadelphia. I went to the school. WHERE THEY! Always taught us. To Care and love each other, but also have love of country. We pledge allegiance to the flag every day, just like every other young person in the city of Philadelphia do. And we said with liberty and justice for all. Just like everyone else only to go out and find as we matured. That was not so as I found out when I went to the theater. When I bought my ticket I was directed to the balcony. It was mandated that I go there. Because I wasn't good enough to go down on the main floor. It's beginning to get a little in the site to the society and how the Society viewed me. A person of color. And we. Always went to the park. And I recall how I look through that wire fence at this large swimming pool. Which I knew, I could never use I would never be admitted. because. The society was saying loud and clear to me. That I wasn't good enough. Those are the kind of things to. Make. You feel bad. I finished school in Nineteen forty, three. I went out and I I volunteered. And when I went down to the induction center. Institutional racism smacked me right in the face. because. Sergeant was there and. He told me go one. When I went through the door, and he told my wife go another way, and so I went into an all black unit safer, the officers they will white. When you enlisted, you realize the military was segregated. You. Don't even think about those things until it hits you in the face. And of course, the thing that made it more real more painful was the fact that they send US south. They send us right into the heart of the place where people would. would. Be a confrontation. We went to camp. Wheeler Georgia for Infantry Basic Training And we spent quite a time in Mississippi right in camp McCain. We spent almost a year there. and. We went on maneuvers into Texas Louisiana. And we came back to little. Rock Arkansas. Now all these places I was given the message. of WHO and what I was as far as the society was concerned. And it was really frustrating to think that you have made a commitment to your country and yet your country is saying to you. All Right? You're okay, but only so far. I went into Macon Georgia. Attempted to get a drink of water while I was in their simple thing like a drink of water. Because, you walk around the town Ucla Fountain drink i. went to drink at. Someone grabbed me and say boy. You don't drink here. Pointed to the sign, which said White. And directed me to. Another sign was said colored. Where was another fountain and you of course in uniform at the time happened? Soldier like all the other lack soldiers we will all experiencing. This was ear perception, though that the black troops generally though. fully understood the fact that. While the rhetoric of the war against Nazi racism, and so forth will was fine. In practice, the country was doing something entirely different. It was as though you were just a fringed. Country had was to personalities Channel One way. We may make wonderful announcements. You know we we've talked about engineer. Christian ethics and We're going to make the world a better place for democracy and all that other jazz, but then when you cut down to a real thing and you start seeing the way they operate. Things we're not. And so I? Began to be an angry, frustrated, young black soldier. After my experiences. I really did not want to be. On A. Specially after. Having to stand on a bus. When there were no seats at the back, having to stand up for hundred miles and looking at empty seats. Didn't endear me. To to my country. Couldn't eat in a restaurant. Had to go around the back. Knock on the door to get food. And I'm in a uniform I. And I. Prisoners of war from Germany. Being allowed to go in a restaurant and sit down to eat, and I was not entitled to for the same opportunity.
Johann Sebastian Bach 1: About Johann Sebastian Bach
"One of your parents doctor or lawyer and maybe as far back as they can remember everyone in their family has gone into the same profession while that's how it was with the Bach family all of them were musicians Johann. That's German for John. Sebastian Bach was born in sixteen eighty. Five in the German town of is enough. His father was the official town musician. There by the time was ten. Both his parents had died so he went to live with his older brother. Who was also a musician? Of course Johann Sebastian. Bach turned out to have very fleet fingers. He played a mean violin and by the time he was eighteen. He had a job as an organist. Bach held three main jobs over the course of his life. You can tell where he was working by. What kind of music? He wrote the first box. Big Jobs was official. Court organist for the Duke of Weimar so a lot of box great organ. Music comes from early on in his career. That Weimar job also had box serving as concert master. The head Honcho violinist of the Duke's orchestra when the Duke of Weimar decided not to make him conductor of the Orchestra. Bach was pretty unhappy. Then a visiting prince offered a job directing his orchestra but when Bach tried to quit his job in Weimar. The dukes said no way he even threw in jail for a month to try and make its point but it didn't work when Bach got out of jail. He headed straight to the town of curtain to work for the prince the prince had a wonderful orchestra so Bach wrote lots of instrumental music. While he was in curtain eventually balk moved onto his last job at the Saint. Thomas Lutheran Church. In the city of Leipzig. His title was cantor. That's what they called the choir and music director and it was a huge job box trained singers organized music for several churches in town and for the University of Leipzig and he composed new music every week for services at the Saint Thomas Church most of Bach's great choral music was written in Leipzig the choir at the Saint Thomas. Church still performs box music every week. One of the coolest things I ever got to do was sit in the church where Bach worked and listen to the choir sing. His music while Bach was alive. No one outside the towns in Germany where he worked had heard of him and people thought of him as just another working musician after he died people pretty much forgot about him until a century later when another composer Felix Mendelssohn dug out some of Bach's music and performed it after that the whole world recognized what a genius had been and Faulk may even be recognized beyond this world in nineteen seventy seven scientists sent the unmanned voyager spacecraft off to explore the galaxy. They put examples of the best that planet Earth had to offer on board and one of those examples was a recording of Johann Sebastian box. Brandenburg Concerto number.
This Economic Theory Could Be Used To Pay For The Green New Deal

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez wants a green new deal clean energy guaranteed jobs when she announced this everyone asked how are you gonNa pay for it. Here's what she told morning edition earlier this year I the first thing that we need to do is kind of break. The mistaken idea that taxes pay for one hundred percent of government expenditure. She says ambitious government programs can be financed through deficit spending and in saying that she has spotlighted in an obscure brand of economics known as Modern Monetary Theory N._p._R.'s Scott horsely has a beginner's guide modern monetary theory's been around for years but it's only recently stepped out of the shadows economist Stephanie Kelsen Stony Brook. Doc University says that's partly thanks to Cossio Cortes. The Social Media Darling embraced the theory while making an unapologetic case for costly new government programs there was something of an oprah effect wrench she did that. People immediately probably started readied googling modern monetary theory to find out what she was referring to run that Google search and you'll quickly find Kelton herself. The Economist who advised Bernie Sanders Twenty sixteen campaign is one of the best known evangelist for 'EM MT Kelton says paying for big government programs is the easy part. If Congress has the will she argues the Federal Reserve can effectively print the money if Congress authorizes a few billion dollars of additional spending or a few hundred billion dollars then the feds job is to make sure that those checks don't bounce a central element of empty is that governments that control their own currency like the United States don't have to worry about spending more than they collect in taxes. This they can always create more money but Kelton says that's not a blank check for unlimited government spending too often people get a whiff of mt they don't read the literature and they somehow arrive at the takeaway that M._t._a.. is about printing prosperity and of course when people hear printing money they go straight to Zimbabwe Weimar Germany those are notorious cases of runaway price hikes but Kelton says inflation is only Nia danger when demand outstripped the real capacity of the economy the people machines and raw materials last week under questioning from Cossio Cortez Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell acknowledged the U._S.. Job Market has shown more capacity. Did you grow without triggering inflation. He and his colleagues had expected still vows no fan of MT as he told the Senate hearing back in February the idea that deficits don't matter for countries that can borrow in their own currency. I think is just wrong. We're. We're going to have to either spend less or raise more revenue taxes story and Bruce Bartlett also blast. 'EM MT as little more than a fig leaf giving license for big spending in the same way art laugher gave Republicans covered a cut taxes with the dubious claim. They'd pay for themselves. M. T. is sort of laugh recur for the Left. Some of them tease biggest supporters however are not liberal politicians but bond traders but firms like Pimco and Goldman Sachs James Montier. WHO's with the investment firm G._M._O.? Says he turned him Mt. After more conventional economics. Let him astray in the nineteen nineties. Monty and many others were convinced. Japan's rising government debt would drive up borrowing costs. It didn't across both Mike Lines or anyone who stupid enough to follow me money. It was one of the worst trait positions I've ever suggested in my entire life. Monte says M. T. offers better financial forecast and helped him understand why interest rates in the U._S. asks have stayed low. Despite growing government deficits persistently low interest rates have also prompted some mainstream economists like Larry Summers and Jason Ferment to rethink their attitudes and be less concerned about federal deficits but they haven't.

"They ought to have one, and they felt a burning sense of resentment both against the allies, but increasingly against their own government. I mean, they lows the Weimar Republic was set up after nineteen nineteen and they did the best in the end. Of course, they succeeded to destroy it. So it sounds as if there was you know, of a series of I think missed opportunities to light a phrase to us here. But but. Bad decisions and actions that that led to setting the stage for the second World War. Even as though I mean, we had the international community and particularly thinking president Woodrow Wilson here desiring, the, you know, the the organization of global partnerships to prevent another world catastrophe as as the world had just experienced is. I think we to easily look that from nineteen Seventy-nine say, well, it was found to happen those bound to second World War. And so everything we see everything leading from nineteen nineteen in in those terms, and I think that's very wrong. I think that was a good deal of hope. I mean, there are a lot of people in the North American North America including in my own country Canada. But of course in the United States, but also in Europe and around the world who said we must never do this again. And there was a lot of public support for a league of nations for some sort of international organization, which would help to make the world a better place. There was support for an International Labor Organization though support for. International moves to get rid of things like slavery and gun running. I mean, there really was I think at the time support for another sort of world. So it wasn't for deigned. I don't think but the conditions for making peace in nineteen nineteen when not all that good. I mean, you had a job that had been defeated but remained very strong. I mean, in a way, it was stronger strategically than it had been before the first world works at no longer have to worry about Russia in the way that it had to worry about Russia before the I will warn it no longer had a border with Russia because Poland had not come back on the map of Europe and stood between Russia and Germany. You also had all these ethnic nationalisms, particularly, of course, in the center of Europe, which claimed territory in the name of this ethnic nation, but they all included lots of minorities, they will bound to the populations with so mixed. And so it was a formula rivalry for fighting for conflict. It wasn't an easy time in which to make peace, and as as as one of your other speakers mentioned, I mean, you had the problem of the Bolsheviks you had a new kind of challenge to international order from the Bolsheviks. And so it was. Very turbulent time. And so making peace was not easy that is not to defend the decisions. But it wasn't an easy time for them. Right.

"Sure so spire was basically a guy who was born in nineteen zero five in in berlin he came of age during the weimar republic which is the famous german liberal democracy that eventually falls the hitler in nineteen thirty three and ironically as a young man in his twenties and into mid and late twenties he was an avowed socialist and actually left wing socialist and when he argued throughout the weimar period that intellectuals like himself needed to educate germany's workers in order to teach them how to navigate the new institutions of weimar democracy right germany's a monarchy and from nineteen eighteen germany loses them more and it becomes his new liberal democracy called the weimar republic and germany's people who are first in franchise in the weimar constitution the fire worries they don't have the skills necessary to really navigate these institutions large trade unions you know a newly empowered rice dog etc etc so what he wants to do is he wants to intellectual skills in order to teach workers to manipulate the levers of power directly this new democratic government but what happens to spire and indeed many people in this integration on not only the right but also the left of the truth socialist and communist wet is that over the course of the late twenties and early nineteen thirties they become very disenfranchised with germany's workers because at least that they see it workers supported anti democratic political movements on the right they supported the nazis and on the left they supported the communists because the communists like the nazis weimar didn't didn't like democracy they wanted to establish a dictatorship of the proletariat in the leninist guys etc etc so what what this convinces spire especially after hitler comes to power in nineteen thirty three this convinces spire that you're not actually able to rely on ordinary people to defend democracy which is of course what these understanding marxist theory predicted mark said that societies or at least has people interpreted embarks.

"Why in two thousand fourteen i don't remember that well because it was still fresh from like the quantitative easing and i think by that point it was a cue to or q three i'm not sure qe two i think it was quantitative easing number two now look there were problems with quantitative easing insofar as they gave the money to the wrong people they gave it to the banks instead of giving it directly to the homeowners or just frankly drop in and out of a helicopter but the problem was not oh we're going to have weimar republic inflation it's gonna cost me a thousand dollars to get a hot dog and this is relevant because what stephanie kelton is going to tell you which is a theory that has gained a lot more traction frankly since even since 2014 um is that deficits in and of themselves do not matter that national debt for a country such as ours which has control over its currency which is wolves currency is so widely accepted around the world and whose economy is fundamentally sound if not just and it's a militates it's not just i mean it goes but the amount of resources that is generating you know makes us a fairly stable economy and she's going to explain to you if you do not understand this concept of why there is in force proportion between the government's debt and private debt and if you want the private sector to have more money.

"Nonetheless the point is is that long before hitler was in anybody's rearview mirror the even in the weimar republics early days in a you already had an attempt to rearm germany were set the groundwork lay the groundwork for rearmament and it provides an interesting what if scenario to wonder if hitler had never come to power how much of his early agenda happens under any german government mean in my mind it's hard to imagine any german government not eventually remilitarising the rhineland you know even if you are weimar republic democratic one so it's interesting to wonder about the early stuff that hitler did and whether a weimar republic might have done it too and it's also intriguing to note that long before hitler the foundation was being laid for the rebuilding of the german military for those who don't know the german military at the end of the first world war was essentially uh torn apart an army that had numbered in these several millions at one point in the field was reduced to a hundred thousand men uh one person at the time called them a police force paramilitary is the way they're somehow describe now which basically means something between a police force and a soldier hundred thousand men their neighbours all had many more all kinds of weapons systems are prohibited the reason all this stuff matters is because in in this short period of time between the two world wars the germans have to recreate in army from scratch and they can't even really get going until the middle 1930s.

"Could and i don't think he will be able to but if he could i'm sure he would become a tyrant i'm sure he would eliminate democracy uh he there's no people like him don't love or care for democracy because democracy itself requires given take paying attention to other people's feelings having a fair vote he cares nothing for that it's all about him and his need for power control and admiration so uh he is a vestager uh to do that so when you say could he is there anything better that would be the better he would beat it like the people he admires like mussalini uh putin uh pardon me ladimir putin and putin yes and so he would become a dictator if he could i think r our a government is stronger than let's say the weimar republic was in 1932 and hitler took over with a similar idea i think we'll be able to survive that whether we can survive a nuclear war is another matter which is another think he's very likely to get us into because of his paranoia and there is no impediment between him and the nuclear button the system is set to set up in such a way that the president has the authority to order a nuclear attack and in the chain of command comes through on an early warning basis it goes to the secretary of defense and then onto the president but he can actually figc wakes up on the wrong side of the bed he can actually order a nuclear attack well that i understand that's the way the system works we have to hope and.
