"As i mentioned before they stabilize the currency that created that industrial boom but something that was really positive about the stabilization of currency. Was that the re the quote real value of wages increased. And what. I mean by real value of wages. I don't necessarily mean that they got paid more. It means that the buying power of the money that you received was higher And that increased by nine percent in twenty nineteen twenty eight and it rose to twelve percent more afterwards so actually compared to the rest of europe In terms of buying power real wages. germany's industrial workforce was the best paid in europe Said they were. If you're working in a fucking factory you're on welfare yourself And there's so many people that were totally without a job that ended up going into the industrial workplace And they pull themselves out of poverty as a result. I wanna talk a little. Bit about women women dominated the weimar electorate So out of a total population sixty million germans. There were two million Young men and women between the ages of eighteen and thirty four who died and another two million That had been so fucked up like either physically mentally that they couldn't really there weren't is like four million people that weren't going to be participating in in governance And so prior to this women weren't allowed in any political organizations In like pre-world war one but they definitely took up the mantle during the weimar republic and in those years Women voted in huge numbers and support and supported like the weimar republic Because obviously had granted them the ability to vote. so they're you know returning the favor so to speak but unfortunately by the end of the weimar republic women's started leaving those political parties. That were supporting the weimar republic. He so much so that by from nineteen thirty to nineteen thirty two so this is already in the you know we late hours of Of the weimar republic women were the fastest growing group who supported the nazi party..

"So what would happen and this is kind of the positive points out of it. Is that those parties would have to cooperate with one another and coalitions So papered sounds really great but in practice there were some problems there so I can talk about the negative aspects of the weimar republic. I'll start with that. One in the parliament as i said was elected through this system of proportional representation. And so you know. The german citizens would vote for a party. Let's say voted for the pay a sdp and You know rather than a specific candidate. Like i'm not voting for you know. I'm voting for democrats as an example right And what happened is that there was just a ton of these smaller parties No party ended up getting a majority So they would form these coalitions. Which on paper sounds like a good thing right. Everybody's has to like cooperate with one another. There's no you know not like here in the united states today where there's only really two parties that you can choose from and they both suck you know you. Can you know they. They all have to get along and make compromises and things like that on paper. It's great but in practice. What happened was a constant stream of disagreements between all of these parties and we would have like these flip parties. Were like one party would side with you. Know would join a coalition with another party for one particular issue and then for five more issues would be totally against them in that would hamper their ability to make deals with one another. It was crazy Scissors omar The party system created a gridlock system. Absolutely right and argue probably. I mean i'd argue is probably worse than gridlock and we only have two parties so imagine if we had like ten and none of them can agree on fucking anything. The the gridlock gridlock. Between or to the republican and democrats is like the only thing that keeps us from not falling off a cliff..

Unless you have already studied economics extensively. You'll have to study economics for a lot longer. This entire episode will last to understand it. Best luck no need to do that here. Since it's not the focus of the episode. The only really important thing to know is that it did happen and then it leads. You really really shitty times for the weimar republic.

"I mean, that is that that's that was part of the deal with the Weimar Republic. Yeah, So you know, I mean, why are we legalizing marijuana all over the country? And why are Republican you know Republicans lawmakers when they get going leave Congress, including including a former speaker of the House, becoming lobbyists for marijuana, which is a substance substance. Whatever you think of it, I mean, it's it's not conducive to having a constructive life or to ultimately to the social order. I think it's because they think, you know. Well, the more people are just on the couch stoned then you know, the less trouble they're going to give us. You talk in the book about a couple of things that I'd like you to expand on sees a resume. Yeah, Explain. Caesar is, um, is a form of so it's obviously named after the first Caesar Julius Caesar, who took over the last remnant of the Roman Republic about 50 years before the birth of Christ and turned it into a one man rule state. It's a particular form of one man rule. Another way of turning one man absolute rules. You call an absolute monarchy, or you can call it a tyranny, right? But it's a particular form that becomes, in a sense, it's not justified. Maybe necessitated when the constitutional order is broken and can't go on on. So you're you asked me about this. This isn't a chapter of the book Chapter seven in which I speculate. I basically don't take sides. I don't make recommendations, but I say If the president ruling arrangement is a thing that can't go on forever, and I think that's it's possible then it will have to stop. It will have to break what will follow it well, and I Caesar is, um, is one of those things that could follow it if if, if present trends continue, especially without President Trump and his closest allies. Fighting them. I think the country as we've known it could break and then something has to follow and that Caesar isn't it could be one of those things and the's a resume could Emerged from either side. It's easier to imagine Caesar is, um, coming from the blue side or the Democratic side just because they have all of the commanding heights powerful institutions in America now except one, the White House, which they're determined to get back this fall. It's harder to imagine a path for a Caesar ism of of the other side toe happen, but not impossible, and I know I give all the reasons and sort of speculate about how this one might happen. Or that one might happen just because I think no one's thinking about these things. I point the finger in particular at conservatives, you know, I'm not going to name names unnecessarily. But there's a strain of conservative thought, which is so in love with the idea of American exceptionalism that it thinks that Nothing can ever get bad enough for America for America to fundamentally changed for the worse, so human possibilities that have been around since there has been man kind, You know, the fall of Republics, tyrannies, civil wars. Things like that. We don't even have to think about them in America because they can't happen here anymore. And I think that's foolish and somebody needed to begin the conversation about what happens if it does get bad enough, And so I I stuck my neck out and did that. So Michael Anton easy author of the Steaks on DH. Yeah, I want to talk to you about because I think we're closer to these things Michael than most people do. I I could see a breakdown on the election. It's already gonna happen with with the Democrats saying Mail in votes. It'll be days before we know that will be a shock to the system on DH. It will, you know, probably will end that night with Trump being ahead. Then these these ballots will trickle in and trickle in and trickle in, and it will appear as a stealing even if he even if Trump continues to hold They are going to say, Look, how many people are being disenfranchised. They're throwing all these ballots out because the typical number of ballots on Malin that are thrown out is about 20%. And they'll make this into some new scandal. I could see either side. Standing up and saying, That's not my president. It's not my brand and secession. Serious talk of secession where states say I'm not abiding by you because you're out of control. I worried about this too. You know, I do go into some of these election issues in the book. I couldn't You know, they're so vast and complicated, You know, write an entire book about how you know to do modern election fraud, Especially with the way these changes are taking place, So I'm foreseeing exactly the same possibility that you foresee. I mean, the best. You know, we probably won't have what we had in 2016. Where by about two or three o'clock in the morning. If you were still awake, you knew who the president was going to be right? It was over on DH. You know, Days may be optimistic. It could be weeks or months. So good. That famous chapter in one famous not famous yet, but it might be a Chapter seven in which I say states could succeed and this could happen. From the blue Left or the red Right heading now and I don't I don't necessarily even know that you know, there's two ways to talk about succession. Right one is actually pulling it off, right? Because, you know The other is just giving it a try. So what happens if a stage is path of Ah state Legislature passes a resolution and says, We've succeeded from the United States of America. Well, it's not really accomplished until the issue has settled on both sides agree. Yeah, yeah, We're separate countries. Now are the feds going to necessarily accept that and if they decide that they don't want to accept it? What are they going to do about it and well, what they try to do about it Be effective. Um, these are all questions that I think we've barely begun thinking about much less thinking through. I had met a hurry. I don't resolve any of them in the book because I don't know the answers, but I think I have. I think I have raised all of the questions that we need to be talking about. And if I haven't I urged people to read what I wrote. And, you know, write it up somewhere and say, Well, Anton forgot this and he didn't think about this. I didn't think about that because we need to get on this right away. So I tell you, Michael, I thank you for doing this, from the the point of view from the conservative, right? Because I do believe the left has already war gamed this years ago. I Yeah, I don't know. They say the war game they war gamed it pretty recently.

How much if if just in the weight in gold not because they're older anything just in the way to build? How much of these now about eighty times as much so about four hundred dollars per coin. Four hundred dollars. That's inflation. That's inflation. This is why Gould is really really this is just inflation. Gold is worth so much. It was five dollars on the face.

It's it's after the Sandinistas, and and, you know, have you have a banana Republic, it's when there's been a collapse in the west here, we are we are embracing this without those socioeconomic conditions. Why why why would we normally prosperous people? Don't volunteer. To be poor.

You know, you're fighting so hard, and it's hard to get good grades and these same colleges that put all these demands on me and tell me don't sheet and work hard are also teaching me to be voluntarily poor and indoctrinating me, but socialism, how does that make that connection for the older generation that doesn't understand why in the why why in Sam hill, you guys wouldn't just say, hey, three point two ecconomic percent growth is great. We'll we'd rather have that than redistribution. Why? If there's one thing that I can say about my generation that I think is incredible as that they are compassionate. And they want everyone to be able to succeed in they want everyone to be able to be happy and healthy. And when you lay out the socialist plan before thinking into it a little deeper, it's easy to say. Oh my gosh. Everyone will be able to live comfortably and be able to eat in have a job in that would be awesome. They'll be so great. But as you know, it goes back to critical critical thinking as you look into it. A little bit deeper you see that the free enterprise free business model also steers people towards compassionate towards the healthy and happy lifestyle.

You get the opposite problem deflation, a far more serious threat as we've seen since the crash of weight over and I want to make note about deflation here deflation is not a necessary in and of itself a bad thing. So for example, we talked about on this show when gas prices fall. Hey, is there anything inherently bad about you being able to get the same quality good for a cheaper price than you could get it yesterday? The answer is no the real problem comes when you see systemic and rapid deflation across multiple sectors in the same way. That you see inflation happen broadly across multiple sectors in that case, you see bankruptcies and people can no longer sell their goods or their products for a, you know, for a price for what they purchase the the initial the initial what do you call it, the the initial resources for so for give you an example, when you have hyper inflation, one of the things that people would do say, the Weimar Republic was they would walk in and they would wanna pay for their meal before they ate it because they would increase the prices at certain times during the day. And oftentimes the prices would increase by the time they got done eating their meal. This becomes a very serious problem. You think about that? In terms of deflation? So let's say that a company thinks that they can sell their widget for one hundred dollars, and they know buying the goods that they need to and the production cost to create the goods cost them eighty dollars..

"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. Well, we are talking about the end of the first World War, which came armistice came on November eleventh nineteen eighteen a hundred years ago. And I'm speaking today with Margaret MacMillan, she's author of the war that ended piece Laura vote is also with us. She's curator of education at the national World War One museum and memorial.

"Oh, it's gay people. Oh, it's jus. Oh, it's people of color. You know, it's trans people in. So I it for week will people this scapegoat gives them a reason to keep going because there's no other solutions being offered to them, and so they, you know, we, we went there in order to sort of explain to the bar staff. These guys are Nazis. They wear a fucking uniform and let me just make a quick distinction because there's a shit ton of the dumbest people in the world are tweeting at me right now saying, we're not not sees. We're not from the the nineteen. Forties in Germany, and it's like, yeah, dude, I get it. You're not national socialists from Germany from the fuck in Weimar Republic baby. Like you're not okay. You're not Himmler's fucking few cha-cha. But here in America we have a handy term to call right wing hate groups that practice fucking discrimination and violence, and it's not see the word works, and it's also super funny that these people are the ones that are like, what do I have to call a trans woman? A woman? Why can't I call it? Him him, but don't call me a Nazi. Do you know what I mean? It's like a trans woman was born a woman like a trans woman biologically is a woman, and you chose to be a Nazi and you're more precious about your identification. You know what I mean? It's such fucking backwards shit. So we go to the bar. We implore the bar staff multiple times, like yo, these guys are Nazis. These guys are racists. Literally, one of the bouncers goes the only color. I see. Is green. Right? Cool. Yeah, right. Yeah. And so the Donald Trump junior line, so it smart. So fucking like, you know, we're, we're, we're just trying super hard to make sure that the bar kicks these people up before something goes down and sure enough. They ignore us multiple times multiple bar. Staff members told us that they alerted the the management to this. Nothing happened and I'm sitting with a group of maybe seven or eight people. There's about twenty proud boys and I see them in circle and sort of like a semicircle a couple regular bar. Patrons just normal folks who were there for a different birthday party. And that's when I'm like, okay, it's my job now to go in. I have experienced dealing with fascists everywhere from like shitty LAPD officers to, you know, just your garden variety Nazi, fuck. And so what I do as as a Jew who reads, white, who. Like I in this moment and I encourage anybody else who's listening this to do this, use your privilege. In this moment, you used my privilege to go over and distract them from the normal bar. Patrons who were getting very agitated, being harassed and circled by the proudly say, I didn't catch it all, but you can guess what they're saying. Yeah, getting around them. Yeah, getting around them in basically, I'm sure it had to do with the fact that they were flaunting their make America great. Again, hats and yelling about fucking, you know, whatever the fuck probably l. about their white, Ethnos, date dreams or whatever. And that's when I was like, well, let me be a distraction. I'm I'm, I'm an idiot. It's what what I do is I'm a dick right? Like I'm an asshole, but I'm a dick to people who deserve it. And so I just go out and be a dick to Nazis. And so I was a dick, I was like, hey, take off that stupid fucking hat. You know, you know. You know, shit like, oh. Hey, when's the last time you come? You know, like maybe maybe if you came into the hat, like it would grow an actual boy like now to be fair. That was the first question. You asked me when you walked in comedy win last time. Yeah. I mean, it's kind of like it's on my business card, Josh, and rescue was the last time you come? Yeah. So I was just kind of fucking with them..

"Certainly with me as the daughter of a holocaust survivor who you know almost died at the first labor camp in in duluth involved germany the rise of hitler in nazi germany many people wrongly assume that oh if only there had been an anti hate speech law that would never have happened the holocaust could have been prevented not true of the weimar republic during which hitler and the nazis rose to power had very strict hate speech laws very comparable to the laws that germany still strictly enforces and those laws were repeatedly enforced including against nazis and in fact the leading jewish organization in germany at the time said the laws are buying large being fairly enforced it's not as if there are you know week prosecutions and the nazis loved by the way this is want a one of the reasons why censorship is not only ineffective but may even be counterproductive like a lot of mongers in this country they welcomed the attention and the mortar and the sympathy at they gained from the prosecution's and the failure was to protect against actual violence because the nazis got away with actual murder literally physical assaults and outright assassinations of their political opponents in predicts and jews and other minorities beyond that we should raise our voices in various ways to counter hateful messages and that includes proactively educating our societies starting at very young ages in values of tolerance and mutual respect and and decency and human equal human rights in includes giving support to people and groups who are disparaged by hateful speech so they know that they hate mongers are only small minority in this society.
