Are You Living a Virtual or Virtuous Life?
"Like digital, it's here. You know, it's not going away. It's something that is a part of what we do. And who we are as a culture. And so it's learning healthy boundaries. It's learning how to use it in balance and to not allow it to take over your life. You have that group where you're in it for an hour and you're talking and things along those lines. But then you get off and you go apply it outside of the digital space, you know? I think the other interesting thing about the digital space too is that it creates within us this false sense of security, almost like when you're driving a car like road rage. Like I think the way that people respond on the road is not how you'd necessarily respond at a normal conversation. If you're standing in a line with people, you're not going to flip out on them like you would if you were in your car. It's like your car creates this false sense of security and safety that I can act completely different, but it's okay because there's the barrier between the cars, right? But then when you come to that stop light and they're parked right next to you, there's that. That's right. You're actually seeing them. And obviously there are those out there that take it to the next level and they get out and start beating the crap out of each other. Oh my gosh. Which is all done. But I think that that happens in the digital space too. Where we think I can say what I want, I can do what I want and it doesn't really matter. I'll say I'll post something online that I would never say to you directly. And so again, that falls back to being virtuous online, having balance online and creating those boundaries, both when you are online and even when you do or don't get online, and those are all really important things in order for us to live virtuously in the virtual and also to be able to get off of the virtual so we can have the actual genuine relationships and community that got intended us to have with actual human beings.

It was believed that she was engaged to her girlfriend Ramona, a groomer. They made a 7 months and people assumed the question was asked and, you know, they got engaged. Because they were making out in a corner and telling everyone how excited they are to be engaged. That's what they said as a constant meanness tequila Halloween costume party. You know, George Clooney's tequila? The party Heathrow is on Halloween that he never attends because he's got a life now in children and they will both sporting diamonds on their ring fingers and people said the question was popped a couple of weeks ago. Let me ask you something. Why would two lesbians wear rings on their ring finger to show their engaged? And then only come out to say, no, no, no, we're not. Except to say they just want God damn it tension. You know, rebel was she loves a joke. She turns everything into a joke. She said, well, I was doing a thing called hot girl summer.

I mean, that's just like, don't blame me. Obviously, it's something wrong with her.

Understanding the Jimmy Carter Legacy
"Senator, I want to fast forward from Wilson, not yet to Obama and posit Jimmy Carter. You write on page 33 of only the strong about the deep sense of shame James fallows talked about for evading the draft. I've long thought that my generation was conflicted over Vietnam. I came in after Vietnam, but the people who skipped out on Vietnam versus my brother in law who fought it had a deep emotional divide. They were never going to be able to overcome. And that it manifested itself in politics in an unspoken way. You articulate that. So obviously you've thought about what Carter and the Vietnam era did to us, how did that play into the wilsonian hostility towards American exceptionalism? Well, Wilson openly repudiated the American founding and the moral basis of our country. Once you lose that moral foundation cue as Abraham Lincoln warned about in his great speeches and letters in 1850 1960s, it's not a very far slide into repudiating America itself. And that's what the new left did in the 1960s, especially leading up to Vietnam. I think
How President Wilson Railed Against the Constitution
"Did this hegelian mirage? Is it conscious in your opinion on the left today or is it inherited? Is it just simply a reflex muscle memory or do they sometimes president Obama and people like that come along and you believe they're ideologues. But let's just take your average senator, you're sitting next to in the United States. Do they have any idea who Hegel is it? And they think that's a bagel factory. No, I don't think so. I mean, I think there are a few self conscious audio logs like Barack Obama who do. I mean, they're like Wilson, very much understood the project. He was undertaking. It was as much a project at home as it was abroad. Woodrow Wilson had this idea that we had overcome the need for separation of powers, checks and balances, federalism, all these protections built on the nature of man as described in the federal types that you have to have a degree of circumspection and care before granting power to anyone and that you can not grant them unchecked power. Wilson thought that was so much an offense. That's why he wanted to run roughshod over the constitution, create this alphabet soup of agency agencies we have today. It was his idea that you're going to have some elite disinterested scientific core of experts to tinker and administer an engineer society as opposed to accountable elected officials.
The Ideology of Wilson and Obama
"The ideological roots of the book is about, well, there's a lot of Hegel in history. There's a lot of Lincoln in the founders. There's a lot of Woodrow Wilson and finally someone is explained it. Now, Jonah Goldberg has tried a few times. Fine writer, under the shell, no he's a friend of yours. He's tried a few times in big books that only people like me read to explain where this came from. You went back and tried to do it again. Would you explain to people why you think it's important that they get what Wilson was and why it matters and why the framers Lincoln and Reagan are different from that. I think it's important to understand the ideological roots of the decline in American sea all around them. As I said, Barack Obama is the most ideological president since Wilson. Now Barack Obama's are careful though to mask his ideology. Sometimes he let the mask slip like for instance when he was attending Jeremiah Wright's church for all those years. Jeremiah, I remember the infamous pastor who said 9 11 was America's chickens coming home to roost is that God wouldn't bless America but rather damn America. This is not some passing relationship. I mean, Barack Obama saw down his church satin skews for years, even had him officiate his wedding, Michelle Obama. Or when Barack Obama said that America wasn't an exceptional nation. What he wanted to say, we're going to fundamentally transform America view. Now, I don't know about you, but I don't know many people who think that if you love something, you should want to fundamentally transform it. I can't imagine the fetching this Hewitt would take too well if you said honey, I love you, but I want to fundamentally transform you. With Obama, though, it's somewhat rare that that ideological slips. With Wilson, you see it out in the open. The first openly, the first president who was openly hostile and opposed to our Declaration of Independence and our constitution. He said they were outdated. They were obsolete. They belonged to a Newtonian age of checks and balances, not a Darwinian age of evolution. He said that the moral basis of our nation, the natural, equality of mankind, that none of us as Jefferson said are born with saddles on our backs to be written or spurs on our heels to ride. Was outdated as well. He had this conception of history with a capital H that it was evolving and therefore mankind could be thankful that we could have heaven on earth that we could achieve. Utopia. The founders knew that this was all nonsense. They understood as Madison said in the federalist papers that government is the greatest of all reflections on human nature. And our nature, nature is that we're falling creatures.
Breaking Down the Obama 'Apology Tour'
"Now, in a unique way, as a graduate of president Obama is a Harvard Law graduate as you are, you're carrying a rifle and a war zone, president Obama is off on the apology tour. How did that feel? Because you know that that's an ideologue. That's not a commander in chief. That's an ideologue spouting Ben Rhodes written nonsense. The metternich and the MSNBC is out there feeding him lines, which just doesn't match up with your reality walking point. Yeah, well, as I say in all these strong Barack Obama was the most ideological president since Woodrow Wilson, he's an example of what Jean kirkpatrick famously said about the Democrats that blame America first Democrat. And we took that tour in the spring of 2000 winter in spring of 2009. He continued to apologize for he viewed as America sands. Remember, it was on the apology tour when he denigrated American exceptionalism, which most Americans hold dear, saying it was no different from Greeks thinking Greece's exceptional or the British thinking Great Britain is exceptional, which is rarely Obama's way of saying that it's just kind of an outdated and obsolete chauvinism for one zone that we should really all transcend our petty patriotism. And become what Obama declared himself in the 2008 campaign, a citizen of the world. So it makes a certain sense that he would go on that kind of apology tour. Because he is deeply hostile to American power and America's unique leadership role in the world. In fact, he said, his client not only was strong, that no world order should elevate one nation above the other. Most

The Founding Fathers Were Very Clear About Separation of Powers
"Go back to the founding fathers, they were very clear about separation of powers and consent to the governed and checks and balances. Three branches equal any fourth grader that's taught civics of which they're increasingly not taught civics could tell you exactly the moral premise behind separation of powers. Starting in the 1920s, simultaneous, by the way, with kind of the regime of scientists and scientism is there was this fourth branch of government, where Woodrow Wilson, one of the worst presidents in American history, basically made an argument that the kind of founding fathers and what they said and what they did, that's old, that's outdated. We got to turn our back on that a new era is here. We have technology and we can govern men through different ideas and practices. Now, the implications of that is that an entire new regime, if you will, of governmental power and control was ushered in, that does not really fit into those checks and balances. For example, the power is no longer in Congress or in the executive branch, the power is in the deepest kind of chasms of the Department of Justice, the FBI, the Internal Revenue Service, the EPA, and you have this unregulated regulatory agencies that are unchecked largely unknown with unlimited power. And it's very hard to then check and balance it, and then you all of a sudden have very bad things happen. And you ask yourself, who actually voted for this? So for example, Congress should say, if you're funding gain of function research at Boston University, not only should he lose your funding, like you should be arrested. This is insane.

How President Obama Gave Us President Biden
"Obama since I already spoke about him earlier. Let me go ahead and work this in. Obama and this is the man knows how to campaign. Like him or not, I can't stand him. I think he was the worst president in American history. The reason why I say that and I realize there are bad presidents out there, Andrew Johnson, in my opinion, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon really screwed us as a Republican with the EPA and going off the gold standard and all these all these kinds of things Woodrow Wilson right, you'll hear you'll hear about him and Biden obviously is horrible and many people contend that Biden is the worst president ever. Obviously other people talk about Jimmy Carter as well. The reason why I think Barack Obama is is because he said a lot of the stuff that we're experiencing today and place. He set the foundation. Were it not for Barack Obama? We wouldn't even have a Joe Biden. He rescued Joe Biden. Joe Biden was nothing more than a corrupt crook, right? That's all he was. That's all he would have ever been. That would have been his legacy. Just a corrupt no good crook that was in Washington, D.C. for his entire life, never amounted to anything. Everyone there understood that the guy was complete and utter moron and a jerk, but Obama is the one that gave him the platform that he has essentially asked today. In my opinion, helped to resurrect him. But Obama said a lot of this stuff in place. This cultural arc system that you see, there were orders issued executive order so on it issued throughout his administration, the way that he would come out and talk about if I had a son, you know, he looked just like Trayvon. I'm like, he looked just like Trayvon. But what are you talking about? You have black half white. You're someone look like Trayvon. For God's sakes. I mean, just a little stuff like that. There's someone to look like Blake Griffin. I used to say, I don't even know where Blake Griffin is. You know, where Blake Griffin is. Now I don't even know where that. He plays for the Celtics. All right, so just nonsense like that.

He said he was a nerd before it was cool to be a nerd et cetera. Cool to be an to the point. Where you guys talk about people who definitely weren't nerds back then refer to themselves as having been a nerd at a certain time their lives because it makes them more impressive sound well. It reminded me of how you often call me out for claiming to be a nerd myself when he was talking about that I started thinking about my own high school experience and it brought me back to the reality of my experience which was probably quite different than rains and it made me a little sheepish. About claiming a similar brand of nerds them. Yes he claims. Yes you know because i think he had. I think he was much more of a true nerve than i guess. I know he was to some extent. It's all a bit relative in that. I would say let's say Megan fox. i'm trying to think of some like cool pretty actress you know. She's a nerd really. Oh now is it.

I wanna thank you so much for coming on the show they give a really kinda demystifying a sound design. Not just for me. But i think for the audience as well you know sound is being able to. Here is one of our five vital senses and as designers of course we look at visual things. We touch things so the work that we do is mostly around those two senses but sounded something. I think you know for those of us that have hearing we sort of take it for granted in terms of how important it is and how useful it is and so. It's good to have someone you know on the show to talk about how they got into. Sounds on how it's important and how you've been able to use it. You know to be a creative person so thank you so much for coming on the show. I appreciate it. Thank you so much for happy. This is great at at a very good time. Thanks.

"Wilson they an right. What's that. Wilson woodrow wilson. He thousands of journalists in jail. He banned the playing a beethoven because he was german aka hon. I've a funny story actually about beethoven. Did you know that he was black. I mean wilson would probably stop band but it's an interesting story so in one thousand nine seven this british composer Samuel kulab college. Taylor came up with wild theory that Beethoven was black Said that this guy was like mixed race he was. He was a whiting head. A white english mother And his father was from sierra leone And the reason why he started saying that beethoven was black was because he couldn't help but notice from all of the drawings of beethoven that there was like a a lot of likenesses between his facial features and the images of beethoven that he was seeing. Now keep in mind all the images of beethoven. The king were like drawings and secondly talk about a weird way to say you must be black because your pitch drawings look like me in some way and anyway He ended up going to the The south in the us and He said if the greatest of all musicians were alive today he would find it impossible to obtain hotel accommodation in certain american cities as what he said about About the south. Because beethoven was black according to him and and beethoven was black. Became kind of a slogan for civil rights in the us which is interesting for this particular conversation that we're having about Civil liberties and even malcolm x. Jumped on this train. So he told an interview like in an interview till one of the interviews that beethoven's father had been quote one of the black amores that hired themselves out in europe as professional soldiers. Apparently there was a lot of spanish. Moore's that were sell swords at the time and this was the going theory that he was black to be clear he wasn't black. Beethoven wasn't black. He was definitely white But i choose to believe that he was black. Just because it's more interesting that way. All right what else..

"Is tom seru. F- one of our interns at the james wilson institute tom. Why don't you get a started. Dr charles murray. Thank you for being with us. My pleasure i think the most apt place to start is by addressing the reasons that you wrote this book You say towards the end of chapter one. And i'm quoting one. Audience is a special priority for me people on the centre-left who are in the tradition that extended from fdr through bill clinton and included senator. Joe biden. what is your sense of why. This group deserves a special focus right. Now because the centre-left has been cowed into silence. That's the only way. I can read the absence of criticism of the critical race theory. argument the systemic racism arguments. More generally ever. Since the fall the summer. I should say of a twenty twenty after the riots and protests. The mainstream media has been uniformly uncritical of any of that presentation. Not just on critical they bought into it so that it is presented as if everybody knows that the disparities in policing have to be due to racism. What else is going to be the Disparities in the labor market the lack of senior officials major core corporations who are black be racism. What else can it be. So the centre-left knows better. I think i think the centre-left knows that there's been a long history of the existence of disparities between blacks and whites. Whatever their causes maybe and those disparities once you correct. The four i q for example are radically reduced. Once you correct for the difference in violent crime rates in black neighborhoods in white neighborhoods a lot of differences in policing those disparities disappear. A lot of people that are left. no this. This is not rocket science. It is not the case that nobody has ever known. These disparities are out there. But they haven't set up anything. And i've hoped that this book will make it easier for them to say well. I'm not as bad as charles murray. But we've got to recognize that and then start to raise some of these arguments which can be done perfectly consistently from a centre-left philosophy and try and slowly. Try to get the conversation. Back to one in which it is apparent that the mainstream view of america and i'm confident as true across all the races is still that in america..

I can relate that. I've been on. Tv for twenty eight years. And when i meet people that were on television before me. I still find it weird that they know who i am. Yeah so that never goes a good way. I don't think that should go away. It's it is surreal. Y- there's something about that line you know where it's like the bachelor it's like i still think even though they're like twenty contestants they're like twenty three twenty four. I still think they're all old older than me. Or you know with the real world or something like that. There's something about like. I when i watch when i watch any young person who's really confident with women. I immediately think they're older than me. Even though i am a very old man at this point And they're twenty four if they're confident with women and they know what to say and they know what to do. I assume that i'm sixteen.

Just like all the So like all the material was just is just always there on the street and you just need to know how to arrange it and interpret it. But i mean i hope it's inspiring for like other people who like are like you know feel like some kind of like they don't have the money to do something like the the resources just. It's so easy you don't have to do this exact same thing. But it's like. I had ambitions early on like when i was younger to make these big bloated movies that involve like big crews and stuff like that and you know all these fictional elements and stuff but like this just felt the most honest and you know like it. Just something i could just reliably do like without any buddies help really were and that means no interference to yeah not to say that. Like with with the show now. I have like this unbelievably talented group of people. That like helped me like that. Part of it editors now i have a whole. There's a whole apparatus around it. That like i basically had to teach everyone to kind of see things in a certain way or cut things in a certain way and they're all just amazing. I think it'd be. It just occurred to me when you were talking about how you used to have ambitions to do sort of a big fiction movie that it would be hilarious in. I would love to see if they gave you the next fast and furious movie. Tau f- ten. Yeah they're just doing hockey's now. Yeah yeah because. I got fascinated a couple of years ago with the fast and furious movies. And how insane they are mostly how they They seem to not. No one has understands how physics works and those. I know. That's not the point but i just recently took my son to see f nine. It's the finest movie i've ever seen. What do you mean. They're absolutely off the wall bananas and things happen that you just can't believe happen and you can't believe everyone's just watching this happen and and so it's kind of like my show it is and what i thought it'd be really great if because you've got this heat. Now of of how john wilson. He's this incredible tour In the past what happens is when someone gets some heat is director. They give them a big movie like this. If you shot your version of fast and furious ten and you were standing around with vin diesel and all those stars and you're saying guys we just have to wait to see what happens. And i'm going to go and i'm gonna shoot rat eating a piece of baloney in the corner. I would just tell them right. I mean dream van. If you're listening. I yeah i would just tell them to make fast ten as they were going to and then i would just yeah i would just document it. And then we would trash all the footage that they shot they would get fifteen maserati and they would be having them all climbing up the eiffel tower and it's a stunt racing the eiffel tower the top to defuse a bomb. And it's a stunt that costs well over six hundred million dollars and just as it begins your camera would drift over to the side and pushed in and you would see a decaying eclair stepped on in the mud and you would hold on background but here this amazing we miss all the pirates man. It's summertime. I love summer. I due to some brings us great moments when you kick back around like a campfire. You grab a few co beers you and your buddies make one of those backyard firepit. S- yeah you do that on a camping trip and you sit around with your buddies and you talk about you know how your day and the canoe went how your game of capture the flag you talk it all down That's an interesting camp.

And i i will do my best to give you my my best vocal performance But a terrific guests today and Anxious to begin this portion of the show go today. Directs writes produces and narrates the brilliant. Hbo documentary series. How to with john wilson. You first season now on if bill max absolutely thrilled talk to him today. Sean let me begin by complimenting us saying anyone if you're listening and you haven't seen yet how to with john wilson go and watch this right now. Not right now. Listen to all the ads and by all the products. But then when you're done doing that watch how to with john wilson which is absolutely a delight thank you. It's still very very surreal Hearing this from you. And i i mean just being face to face with you i mean. I think you're the first celebrity. That's consented to meet up with me since since you're showing a wet consented to meet with you instead of me. Filming them on the street or something. That's right. I should also mention that. You're part time gig. Is you work with. Tmz last yeah. Yeah one of the things if you work on if you work with. Tmz is you have to be able to keep asking Inane pointless questions over and over and over again even if you get no response and i I'm only bring this up. Because recently i was somewhere i was doing a show at the largo theater and i came out and it was a tmz guy there and it wasn't like he was nina or anything. It's just it clearly had told him. Just fire off as many questions as you can as you might get something interesting. So i'm out there. He has a couple of questions new. Hbo show and i said i. I really don't know what that's going to be at what you know. And then within seconds. He saying teak wood you stain teak or would you leave t. alone a does it. Does it still water unstained. And i'm like i don't know. Is it a onomatopoeia or on a mata early. Anything and i feel like i have a similar similar approach sometimes In a weird way. I'll be meeting with someone you know. Say like a car collector or something like that and they might think that I'm here to talk about the cars but there's something completely different going on in my head. Yes and i might ask something like whether or not the teak should be stained or something like that and they'll give me i. It'll kind of catch them off guard and it'll give them They'll they'll they'll give a really honest kind of answering the moment because they just don't really know why i'm asking and that ends up being the one moment. Sometimes that we end up using in the show. Because i'm shooting like six episodes at once all the time so if i have someone who is willing to talk to me. Usually i'll cycle through six or seven different topics. So that if it turns out to be a dud for one episode than fit perfectly simply. It's almost like the the farther away at gets from the subject matter. The funny eric gets you know one of the things you know l. l. back in a bit again and say your show and again this is for anyone out there who's the uninitiated Your show is essentially you and now you have some people helping you but you walking around with video camera and seemingly you shoot thousands of hours of stuff that you find kind of fascinating and interesting in and around new york. It's the most honest depiction. I've ever seen of new york. It's new york warts and all but you're not making fun of new york. You clearly love new york. Yeah but there are shots in your show. That are absolutely haunting a trash bag. That's caught on a broken mannequin. That's lying in the street and it looks ghostly and were or rat eating you know a smashed cannoli And then scuttling away and you narrate the show. We never really see much of you. Start with a topic and it's how to. You'll say this is an episode. That's how to make small talk. Which is all about. I'm john wilson gonna teach you. I'm going to investigate. How do i make small talk but very quickly this leads you to meeting a guy who's determined to capture child predators. Yeah and you're suddenly meeting with this guy and he's taking you to his house now. I know that took hundreds of hours of shooting and some crazy. Good luck and you keep at it but when you put it all together it's taking this serpentine strange journey as a viewer. I'm watching it. I don't know where it's going to go. I don't think you know where it's going to go. I mean that's what excites me. The most about the work is that that kind of weird thread that you just have to follow you know. We just have the freedom to do that. In the show and i feel like a lot of other productions might not have that but i just wanted to make sure that we preserved it because that is what i feel most alive. You know. it's like when. I feel like i'm kind of documenting something or seeing something that kind of no one else has seen. Potentially you know and following this this this thread. I don't know it just like as long as i'm surprised while i'm doing it and i'm confused and i don't know what's happening. The audience that translates to the audience. You know and that that suspense you know. Th that's all packaged into it. Some of the funniest moments just happen. It's the mistakes that are beautiful. And whenever i would look at great moments from like talkshow sort of god johnny carson. Most great moments were accidents. It was it was not the sketched that they had written. It was something going off. The rails Someone misspeaking something happening a monologue joke bombing. That's where the magic would happen. It was not by design. You had a show that said how to cover furniture after bunch of twists and turns. You're talking to someone who's telling you how you can Restore your foreskin and how. He has dedicated his life to restoring people's for skins with different different device. That he's then waits. It's totally weights. I was watching it as thinking again. You can't write that that and if you had written it it wouldn't have been nearly as funny. That just happened. Yeah yeah it's it's really just a i always say it's just just kind of like a numbers game. You just really have to try a lot of different things and just follow the most interesting threads. I dunno it's like when i was you know it's like when i was in college. I made this documentary. I was trying to make a documentary about strip club. You know it was just. It was really really trying to make a regis. Wanted to go to the strip club yeah yeah air quote documentary. Because i was always my excuse me. i'm always. They're saying it's for documentary. They say camera said well. We don't use the camera right away. Yeah just just doing sketchy going out. That i've never done undocumented. It's not really my field. Yeah and once. We got over that. I found that there was like they would host these these these parties where they had balloon fetishists come and people that were attracted sexually attracted to the inflation and the popping of balloons. And is that a thing really. I mean i know. Everything's a thing. But i've never heard of people becoming aroused by the inflation and popping a balloon. It's you look it up. There called lugner's it's like a well established fetish and i went to the so i went to the strip club and i was and i found this kind of subculture. I became friends with the leader of i. Guess one of the biggest message boards on the internet and i ended up making of the documentary just became about that. You know and it's just kind like it's about just saying yes to instead of like being very narrow and and trying to like you know like just do what you originally had planned out to do. You know i. It may sound like cliche advice. But it's it's it's really just like you just have to be willing to throw everything out that you thought it was going to be and you know. Follow whatever like appears. It's it's just so you know. During the first season of the show is so much like truly like relied on pure coincidence In this way that absolutely terrifies me and made me think that it wasn't like reproducible. Maybe you know about like. And and i'm just like how could we possibly kind of bottle this much magic kind of like all over again you know..

There was correspondence between lloyd and carol on a personal level daniel carroll To make sure that his remarks would have an outsized importance in the official register. Now james madison denno. Carol were good friends At least in a political sense During the ratification debates Of the us constitution. They exchanged multiple letters to each other and geno. Carol is a very Watchful witness of the state ratification in maryland. And he sends william packers set of grievances against About the first the current constitution a at a to james madison and one of the grievances is that There's no language about The fact that we shouldn't have an established church no federal church and general. Carol sends this This list of Grievances to james madison says look. It's it's these amendments. Have no use year right because the federal is have one but may be of use to you in virginia So i see this as a coordinated effort between daniel carroll and james madison to appease anti-federalists On the question of these amendments. And i see this as a coordinated effort in the halls of congress at the time in which general unambiguously sports it now. The language of godfather is not to suggest that denno carol is the father of the first amendment. He is of course not james. Madison was the one who i started. the the manson of course they went through several rounds of of contested debate and and redrafting but he is godfather sense the fact that he supports right the first amendment in this way provides a kind of theoretical justification for it right and sponsors it in that way so i see this is not as a singular feet of james madison but as a coordinated effort between daniel caroline and madison so in in the book the section. You talk about Traditions that predate. John locke though explicit influences on the founders especially after of the bill of rights in the first amendment and so is one. If you could talk about some of those traditions that you referred to and How we know that. They haven't explicit impact on the founders. Well the one the the tradition. I haven't in mind when. I say that That there are traditions. That predate john locke is is the anti papal tradition so john locke argues in the letter concerning toleration and many other documents One of which was just recently uncovered in Saint john's college in annapolis on the question of of whether to tolerate catholics in all these documents john carroll sorry john locke comes down quite decisively on the fact that when should not tolerate catholics for for these two reasons right that they ultimately that they deliver themselves up to a foreign prince the pope.

"The don't participate in the hookup. Culture that is that that men and women can lose a case for one another that is that men will end up liking other kinds of ways of satisfying themselves aside from Spending time with and learning to love a woman so you know. I think the the the shattering of those old morays the old culture what i call in the book. The old wisdom is Is something that That it explodes a lot of different directions and were only really beginning to understand all of the ways in which that explosion compromises human thriving. I wince got when i hear for example. Some of the worthy pro-life groups talk about the decline in the abortion rate. Because i'm convinced that some of that drop has everything to do with on not only wider use contraception on but also for some of the reasons that you've just described. I think that there's just general lack of interest in starting a family earlier and that of course we're avoiding the tragedy of abortion but the means by which we're doing it where Creating more socially isolated individuals who lack the capacity for intimacy. What a what. A terrible cost to bear. I mean it's lacking the capacity for intimacy but also lacking the capacity to form a community with another person and if it's a deep human need you know i mean it's right there at the beginning of genesis right that it's not good for man to be alone and and i assume that the same holds true for women and And you know if those are true. Things than undermining our ability to form lasting communal relationships where human beings can trust one another implicitly and were sacks is subordinate within a larger relationship is just crucial to human thriving and And we can compromise that in a lot of ways and You know. I think it's it's we do humanity. I dunno i feel like.

Know we don't care about the state of guys in the modern world and Don't care to investigate the problems that go along with the destruction of these old mores and how that affects men. I think those are really crucial in coming up with a maybe a casualty list of the sexual revolution. And and you know the the insofar as we live in a politically correct age. Where certain kinds of questions can't be asked and certain kinds of victims can't be identified. It's a real tragedy in the final chapter of your book. You talk about the importance though of addressing some of that tragedy with positive action. And you note that Positive law on law that we can enact at the state and federal level is an educator of people. Something citizens look to for a guide as a in their lives. As you know. James wilson institute were concerned with natural law and its role in informing public discourse and legal opinions to connect your book to our mission. Here at the james wilson institute. I wanted to ask your thoughts on the proper relationship between positive law natural law in the context of family policy. Do you think that positive law especially positive law on marriage and family life on issue. These are issues. Running to the core should be explicitly rooted in natural law. Or do you think that..

I believe burke thought that in this comes out french revolution Chapters again that there was a civilized basis already in place before the rise of commercial society and the rise of commercial society was indebted to this this pre commercial foundation at the columbus foundation. So how's like the foreign policy free trade. I think for him. It's it could be characterized as the idea that commercial relations could enhance peaceful relations.
