The battle for Wisconsin
"Century. alphabetical order appeared to be immortal no longer could anyone at home in an alphabetic writing system remember a time when the automatic response to ordering had not been alphabetical. In fact, it often seems that the chaos and cacophony of the world could be tamed by the of position alone. Paul Outlet Eighteen, Sixty, eight to nineteen, forty four was a Belgian visionary who wanted to and believed he could categorize all the information in the world anything ever written a book everything ever known could be compressed. He believed into a card system one. Nugget of knowledge per index card, all filed in alphabetical order whence any information about anything anyone anywhere any time could be retrieved outlet began modestly in the eighteen ninety s creating a bibliography of sociological literature. He then spread his wings to found the International Institute of Bibliography in Brussels which drew on his many library catalogs and Bibliographies, as could be consulted to compile a summary and some he hoped of all libraries and all books, an inventory of all that has been written at all times in all languages and on all subjects outlet then established a subscription service that supplied his customers monthly with standardized cards filled with newly precise information. One hundred, he had three hundred full members and by the outbreak of the First World War another fifteen hundred people annually approaching the Institute for Information the Second World War saw Utopian Dreams Wayne to be replaced by pragmatism in Germany in nineteen forty the government ordered the seizure of any books from across occupied Europe that might contribute to the stock of the projected library of the Nazi who Shula or University of the third. Reich. But outlets universal bibliography comprising nearly fifteen million cards. After almost half a century of indexing and summarizing was spurned it is an impossible mess. It was reported back to headquarters and it is high time for this all to be cleared away. Nevertheless, there were elements that the Nazi's thought worth preserving the card catalogue might prove rather useful. This sounds harsh and must have been unbearable for the elderly outlet but in retrospect it is worth noting that it was the card catalogue, the engine of his system that was deemed worthy of preservation. For in the preceding half-century, alphabetical systems had spread everywhere even when the great medieval encyclopedias were aware of alphabetical order, they had frequently disdained it by contrast at the start of the twentieth century Nelson's Encyclopedia Nineteen O nine. Soon to be retitled, Nelson's perpetual loose-leaf Encyclopedia had leapt on Alphabet Ization as it savior in an attempt to find a solution to the bane of Encyclopedias of all eras that of becoming out of date Nelson's volumes consisted of pages of alphabetically ordered entries like any other modern encyclopedia. The difference was that those pages were not permanently bound into their covers as regular books were. But manufactured as a loose leaf system and held in place with pins in the binding that opened with a special key Nelson's was a modern book trumpeted the publisher's preface with a new and special emphasis on subjects which are of wide and active interest today namely, the sciences and technology as well as biographical essays on living people all of which needed regular updating each volume included our guarantee. No less than five hundred removable pages would be sent without further cost to each subscriber for at least three years after purchase as has now become unsurprising however, and despite their very product hinging on alphabet. and. It being its main selling point. This system itself was apparently invisible even to Nelson's the encyclopedia contained entry for alphabet covering the history of writing. But none for alphabet ization it might well be that alphabetical order even in a perpetually updated reference work had by nineteen o nine become invisible because it was so routine and so ordinary just as it had and that other beacon of alphabetical order the telephone directory or Phonebook Street guides and later post office directories precursors to foam books head appeared. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in many cities these publications listed the names, occupations and addresses of residents and businesses arranged in alphabetical order or occasionally in St Order that was itself organized alphabetically within districts even. So most of these early directories had included prominent and alphabet components. For instance, they were prefaced by registers of government officials magistrates, Alderman or other civic leaders or institutions almost all of whom were listed hierarchically or chronologically the first telephones were sold in pairs the owner of one of a pair. Able to communicate only with the owner of the other customers therefore had no need for directories in eighteen seventy, eight George Coy who had earlier worked for a Telegraph Company in Connecticut designed and built a switchboard where calls could be switched from one exchange to another vastly increasing the reach of anyone subscriber who was now no longer tied solely to a single exchange. These switchboards housed a series of Jack's one per subscriber one subscriber rang through to the exchange. The operator answered the caller asked for A. Fellow subscriber in the operator plugged the callers Jack into that linked to the requested subscriber. Koi signed up twenty one subscribers to his switchboard service. In his first year there was, of course, no need for numbers to be associated with each name. A subscriber would call the exchange nasty speak to another subscriber by name or occupation.

You know, I'm just going to say, but it's a reality check, right? It's a reality check indeed.

The Mysterious Death of Elisa Lam
"Was a sunny sixty six degrees when a Lisa, lamb arrived in Los Angeles on January twenty sixth two, thousand thirteen. It felt vastly different from the frigid winters back home in Vancouver Canada. Lisa was a student at the University of British Columbia. She had decided to spend her winter break traveling up the coast of California by train. This trip was a big opportunity for Lisa. She was fascinated by the film and fashion industries. So what better place to experience both then Los Angeles? Over the past year she'd gained some traction on her blog, a site where she discussed her favorite style and beauty trends. But Lisa also opened up to her followers about her personal life. At Lisa's parents were a recent theme in her blog. They had immigrated from Hong Kong Years Prior, and we're particularly worried about their daughter traveling through America alone.

Hanner hoped these ornate features would attract socialites and businessman five years later, the Great Depression hit and over the following decades, the property fell victim to the economic disaster. While glamorous visitors continued to stay at the C. Soul in the nineteen thirties and forties. By the time World War Two had passed most guests were transients or low income citizens of the city. The neighborhood surrounding the hotel gradually became known as skid row it streets hosted thousands of homeless citizens. Skid row grew to be the epicenter of criminal and drug activity in Los, Angeles and the seasonal hotel was at the heart of it. Countless sexual assault cases, several murders, and over a dozen suicides have happened behind its doors Elizabeth short more famously dubbed.

Slab City - The Last Free Place In America
"Hello, this is Stephanie. And this is cocktails and trivia the show. I talked about Society culture pop culture and a little bit of trivia so that you can have an enlightening conversation. Listen. I am a med researcher when it comes to be doing the research on the topics that you find interesting and giving you that trivia so that you can be intelligent look at Myton and stump your family and friends all at the same time here. We're coming up on the holiday season. So you want to have something to talk about at that dinner table and this is perfect for you. Today. We are talking about something that is really intriguing and interesting and something that's kind of like what I talked about last week when I talked about the Kowloon walled City in Hong Kong this time. I'm talking about a city job. That's in California and the United States of America sit back relax and listen and enjoy my tail about Slab City. I hope that you enjoy it said well, what is Slab City? Where does it all about? It is the last free place on Earth among the desert of Southern California. You will find Slab City Los Feliz.com wrote about it two hundred miles from LA and 150 miles from San Diego in the margins of a county that has the second highest unemployment rate in the country. You are free to resist, but you must adapt on Wikipedia. I found that prior to the United States official entry into World War Two the Marine Corps made a decision to cite a training ground for field and anti-aircraft artillery units to create the training base. 631 Acres were obtained after a construction was completed Camp Dunlap dead. Was commissioned on October 15th. Nineteen forty-two the camp had fully functioning buildings water roads and sewage collections. The base was used for three years during the war but by 1949 military operations at Camp Dunlap had been greatly reduced but a skeleton crew continued on until the base was dismantled and by 1956. Well, all buildings had been dismantled though. They're concrete foundations remained and that is where they got the name Slab City. It was determined. The land was no longer required and the deed did not contain any restrictions. All of the former. Camp Dunlap buildings had been removed. The remaining slaves were not proposed for removal and the Washington Post. I find that since the 1950s Slab City has drawn a variety of people such as anarchists artists drug addicts home. Centrex outcasts retirees and the impoverished that's practically everybody in the whole world and it is a sad truth that the very addictive drug met is fairly common and accounts for much of the crime in Slab City interesting but not altogether that surprising after doing that episode on the Kowloon walled City I learned so much and it is the same type of situation here in Slab City not unlike the Kowloon walled City at all slash city is Lawless talk dirty with crime and Anarchy. It's not pretty and it doesn't bring to it the best elements of society, but it is home year-round for less than 300. No mad, but life is hard rough and scary and the desert campers and old RVs are living quarters for these squatters that don't pay to live on the barren land. That's right. Yep. It is government land that the residents don't have to pay for Slab City is a town with shops and a culture of like-minded people will for the most part and it has the internet cafe where you can charge your electronic devices and sit and have a cup of coffee with your neighbors. This Cafe is the only place around with it. And it's run by solar panels from the same man that runs the internet cafe a tenant of Slab City can watch TV play video games and have a way of the world outside of this desert city up until two hours before the sun sets. That's when the solar panels stop working each tenant as it is with any homeless person and much money in Walled City must find ways to pay for food laundry clothes drinking water and anything for their own Comfort. It doesn't have the modern conveniences that most Americans dead. For granted and the one shower is owned by a man named George the one person in the slabs who has a water tank that he turns on when Neighbors come to take a shower. He charges $3 per person despite not having government officials watching over it. There are helicopters that are really border patrol flying over the city every so often took an eye on the occupants. You see Slab City being only 50 miles away from the Mexican border. That is why they need border patrol. Why would anyone want to live this way though? You say that's all it takes a thick skin to be able to handle the desert life. One of the slabs of the occupants say that it has been amazing living there. When you see Slab City on the videos or pictures of Psalm City. It's hard to imagine anyone living an amazing life there. But these are people that have finally found acceptance and in otherwise cruel world some have had trouble with the law. In prison or can't cope with the outside world. And what about the children of this Lawless City? There are children the few children do attend school and that's their life, but not a lot of investment for them and in the summer at night the occupants get a taste of the world around them. There is great music singing and dancing and the small businesses are open out for the tourists to come by and the tourists are upwards of two thousand people and the summer that want to see and experience a bit of the Lawless ungoverned lifestyle and there is so much to see
The Great Migration and the power of a single decision with Isabel Wilkerson
"Imagine with me this scene. It's a scene that played out and nearly all of our families. It's the scene in which a young person. Somewhere in our family tree. Somewhere in our lineage had a heartbreaking decision to make. It was a decision to leave all that they had known. And all of the people they had loved and to set out for place far far away that they had never seen. In hopes that life might be better. Migration. Is usually a young person's endeavor? It's the kind of thing that you do when you're on the cusp of life. And so there is in all of our families this young person somewhere in our background. That person is standing at a dock about to board a ship that will cross the Atlantic or the Pacific Ocean. That person is loading up a truck. That will cross the Rio Grande. Or that person is standing at a railroad platform. About to board a train. That will cross rivers and mountains out of Jim Crow South to what they hope will be freedom in the north. And they're with this young person. As they are about to board that ship. That boat. That truck. Bat Train. Are The people who raised them? Their mother, their father, their aunt, their uncle, their grandparents, whoever it might have been who had gotten them to this point. Those older people were not going to be able to make the crossing FAM-. And as they looked into the eyes of the people who had raised them. There was no guarantee. That they would ever see them alive again. Remember that no skype. No email. No cell phones. Not even reliable long distance telephone service. And even if there had been many of the people that they were leaving did not even have telephones. This was going to be a complete break from all that they knew and all of the people that they loved. And the very next time that they might hear anything about the people who had raised them. Might be a telegram. Saying. Your father has passed away. Or your mother is very, very ill. You must return home quickly. To see her alive again. That is the magnitude of the sacrifice. That had to have happened. In nearly all of our families just for us to be here. A single decision that changes the course of families and lineages and countries and history to the current day? One of his migration streams. Stands out in ways that we may not realize. It was called the great migration. It was the outpouring of six million African. Americans from the Jim. Crow South. To the cities of the north and west. From the time of World War One until the one, thousand, nine, hundred, Seventy S. It stands out because this was the first time in American history. That American citizens had to. Flee the land of their birth. Just to be recognized as the citizens that they had always been.
Cleve Jones: Queer Spaces After COVID-19
"The reality is that the Gayborhood are going away. So, if you look at San, Francisco's Castro district or Seattle's Capitol Hill or Washington DC's Dupont circle or boys town in Chicago West Hollywood or anywhere you want to look lavender Heights in Sacramento wherever you look where there's a defined gay neighborhood. It's not just a place where there's bars though bar life has always been an important part of our culture. It's where very important things happen. I is political power. When we are concentrated in specific precinct gives us the power to elect our own public office the the power to defeat our opponents, the power to pass legislation that directly affects our lives in our wellbeing. As we are dispersed. We lose that power. Another super important part of it was the cultural vitality look at all the amazing stuff that's come out of West Hollywood that's come out of my neighborhood I mean it's no coincidence that the rainbow flag and the First Gay Synagogue and the First Gay Film Festival and the Aids Memorial Quilt and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence all were born in the Castro because there's that magic that happens when creative people when choreographers and filmmakers dancers and deejays and painters. Are All in that same area and I. Know that collaboration can occur very effectively online but there's nothing like the magic of face to face contact close proximity for that cultural vitality, and then the third thing that's at risk are the specialized social services for our most vulnerable population. So. Whether we're talking about people like myself who are getting old long term survivors of HIV or queer kids trans kids who were fleeing trump's America where do they go? They can't come to the Castro a little crappy studio apartment in the Castro is going to cost you twenty, five, hundred dollars a month. So this is the reality that nobody's really quite talking about that that community that has given so much and strengthened us in inspired US moved. US forward. Being threatened and there's many factors technology. Many. People will say, Oh, well, we can live anywhere. We want. No, you can't. Tell me that try it. You know go to Duluth and walk down main street and hold hands no offense to duluth or any other city. You Might WanNa try doing that outside of a gayborhood. So we need these these spaces they're important and we need to figure out what's our next move? Do you have a solution. There's no easy solution but yeah, when people say oh, cleave. Cities Change well. Thank you for that brilliant observation. Yes. Of course, it has changed but we want to. Be Thinking about that change and the big factor is that cities have changed in a way. That's profoundly new. For generations since the industrial revolution, the cities were the place where refugees went immigrants, Bohemians, counterculture people, artists, homosexuals, and all these people of all these different backgrounds and ethnicities genders would you know create this these cauldrons of creativity and and they would climb their way up the economic ladder move out to the suburbs and that was really accelerated in the Post Warrior the nineteen fifties, the nineteen sixties, nineteen seventies, the phenomenon of white flight. So when I got to San Francisco, the population of that city had been declining steadily since the end of World War Two and we were able to go into these neighborhoods that had been largely abandoned by the working class immigrants that had built them originally. And create what we created I on Polk Street. Then on Castro and folsom street hate streets you know he's really vibrant communities. These are now some of the most expensive neighborhoods in the world. So the district that gave us Harvey Milk. is now inhabited increasingly by wide heterosexual gendered millionaires when you arrived in San. Francisco, you had a sleeping bag and a couple of shirts and forty two dollars and you were welcomed into this guy's home. You would never met who was not expecting you. It was an address you have from a friend and there was a safe place to live and to get on your feet. Even, if it's not as San Francisco, like that mentality is so unique. I think that's pretty much now partly because it's just so difficult to survive. So the young people I meet in their early twenty S. You know these and of course San Francisco, it's all tech And there's a lot of anger towards the tech invaders but I have a lot of empathy and. Real concern for them because first of all, most of them are working sixty seventy hours a week. They have no job security. There would never use the the phrase exploited workers to describe themselves but are blanche you are but I think also back then and especially in San Francisco it was still Kinda Hippie dippy. And it was very counterculture. It was very communal. And everybody was kind of expected and really encouraged to contribute in some way. You didn't necessarily have to be all that good at what you did, but you needed to do something whether it was a drag show or video or film or A. Poetry contest or something there was A. There was a real nurturing of people's creative pulses and a lot of support for there was so many places I knew where if I was hungry I just show up and there would be every night. There would be a communal potluck dinner. There were probably six or seven of those households within a few blocks of where I was living on Castro Street. So I never went hungry.

In nineteen thirteen, she co founded the Liverpool Women Citizens Organization to promote the involvement of women in politics. When World War One broke out eleanor organized association to help wives and other dependents. She continued that work when soldiers returned home, she saw mothers were struggling to provide for families and advocated for the installment of a family wage system.

The Grave Robbing Mobsters - burst 1
"Kind of a side story that I'd never heard before and I happened to stumble across while noodling around on the internet in my research on the Chicago outfit. Now, we're going to kind of dip back into the hole in the wall gang a little bit and in regards to the Hole in the Wall Gang. I can't remember if I've said this or not. I had bought a telephone calls back and forth and and helped a guy named Ernie d'avino get connected up with a company that was trying to do a documentary on the Hole in the Wall Gang dead. Ernie died I just found out here recently. So he and Frank cullotta. They were both in the Hole in the Wall Gang. They both claimed credit for starting the Hole in the Wall Gang and I'll tell you right now they didn't really like each other. They didn't really know each other later in life. But see Ernie never broke her knee took the hit and did some time out of that birth escaped her that night and he actually went to Tony Spilotro his trial testified that don't cilantro didn't know anything about that didn't have anything to do with it tried to help him beat that case. Of course. Tony was killed shortly after that. So I don't remember if he was actually found guilty for them all in the Wall Gang versus burglary or not. But in Jonas had no done now both Frank and Ernie or dead, but this is a little different sort of a story and I'm going to start talking about a month Hollywood movie producer man has he was born under the name of Evron go bogging but he became known as Michael Todd. He started out as a young man. He grew up up down. North central part of the United States and moved to Chicago started out in the construction business then kind of got into the film industry when he was working on soundproofing stages when this home when the pictures first changed from Silent to talking films during the Depression, they would go bankrupt but he came back in the construction business and World War Two came along during World War II just start getting into the movie business and right after World War Two probably is like more like the early fifties. He developed a new big screen film processing operation called said, I don't know if you remember Center. Am I remember probably when I was in late grade school, it came out with these huge big screen Productions that were Cinerama. They were mainly web application and had the Big Sky country as a background. He broke off from the company that develops Cinerama, which he had been involved with and developed another widescreen film process wage. Became known as tadeo. And that was immensely popular his I think his first success with that was a film version of the real popular. Musical, Oklahoma. I'll try to sing Oklahoma for you, but it would not sound good. Just remember they spell out. Okay l a h o m a Oklahoma. Okay. That's the extent of my saying folks his next big hit was Around the World in Eighty Days and I remember seeing that I think of it as a freshman in high school or something. It was a huge big production that a lot of fun. It was a comedy and won an Academy Award for the best picture in 1957, but in the very next year 1958 Michael Todd at the very peak of his success, he'd won an Academy Award. He was going all around the country. He was getting all kinds of offers and he was it was going from one part of the country to the other. I can't remember exactly page where it was a small private plane and it was killed in an airplane crash at this point in time. He was also married to the most popular and what some would say the most beautiful actress in Hollywood Elizabeth Taylor dead. That the peak of her career in the fifties. They lived Hollywood Legend through huge big parties. They lived on a lavish scale. He left a huge big estate after he died in this airplane Christ. It was wage estimated three to five million dollars. Now that doesn't seem like so much now in 1957 325 million dollars was probably more like forty to fifty million dollars Thirty to fifty million dollars at the estate office to Elizabeth Taylor and they had a daughter together named Elizabeth Frances and wonder whatever happened Elizabeth Frances Todd, or maybe she used the name of gold bug and I don't know. I've never heard of the daughter off the other half of this state went to his son by a former marriage that Michael Todd Jr. During the years since his death and internment and they had a big funeral and Chicago and he was buried in Chicago but people started a rumor that Elizabeth Taylor as they closed the coffin down on him and put a big ten carat diamond ring that was valued at $100,000 on Thurs. Has been stronger now authorities would later say that anybody who did even a little bit of research in read the newspaper articles about the accent would figure that there probably wasn't enough left a Michael, body to put any kind of a ring on but maybe you know, I guess you might assume she just throw it in the casket with him. I don't know

Iconic bookstore makes plea to customers in effort to stay open
"I saw this actually, just this morning, so something we enjoy doing when we travel, and I've been known to kind of hop off of a tour away from my family and jump into a local independent bookstore where I can't find you. We actually lost you in Paris last spring when they went to the show. We were there when Notre Dom, right finds and all the sudden turn around. We're at the at the cathedral, like Where's Mary? Curable, admitted bookstore. So you know where to find me So, but I'm thinking of pals bookstore. Portland, Oregon. Hatchets Piccadilly in London, The list goes on. I always love and I think a lot of travelers do. Sometimes some of these iconic bookstores are almost their own museum in their own right.

With a plea for help that due to the lack of tourist revenues are down more than 70%. On the next few months. We're going T are actually going to determine whether they can even survive. And what's interesting here is that book sales are up during this pandemic, but who's benefiting from that? Amazon? So I think if we think about the upcoming holidays with the lack of international tourists in our great American cities this winter just considers these independent bookstores thes local businesses. I cannot imagine America without some of these stinking of city lights in San Francisco. Good point. Yeah, so just let's support our country, a book or two, or 10 or
War of the Worlds: A Wave of Halloween Hysteria
"We're going to look back eighty-two years. Why because it's almost Halloween eighty-two years ago people America woke up to discover that the night before they had been the victim of a theatrical radio presentation. The date was October 30th 1938 the radio show was Orson Welles Mercury on the error version of HG Wells War of the Worlds now in 1938 war was brewing Germany invaded Austria. And Japan was strongly along with the Invader prior to World War II. It was forecasted Britain would suffer night are bombing attacks causing large numbers of Civilian casualties in Mass Destruction. It was widely agreed that navigation and targeting would be more difficult if man-made lights on the ground could be extinguished as early as July 1938 American citizens were off. To practice lights out beginning at dusk. It would not be called blackout drills until nineteen thirty-nine fear across the country as rumors spread about coming to the aid of our British allies should War break out but the sounds of war that came over the radio that October 30th 1938 were not from Europe but from Mars Choice a live broadcast Across America 5 p.m. In the west which would have made it about 8 p.m. Eastern time meant that there was no time to warn the West Palm about what was to come a wave of Hysteria that swept across United States at night before Halloween has risked realistic radio dramatization reached all the way to Portland, Oregon 2500 miles from the scene of the fictional Invasion. The telephone switchboard of The Oregonian newspaper in Portland was swamped by hundreds of excited dog. As people rushed into the business office of the newspaper demanding information hundreds of calls were made to the Portland Police most wanting to know what protection the city could off and what place might be safe in the event that wholesale destruction spread to the Pacific coast doctors reported cases of women fainting a mandamus reported to a loaded his family into a car and driven frantically through the streets of Portland searching for a Haven of Refuge Portland officers or the Western Union Telegraph company were jammed with person seeking to send off of grams to relatives in the East inquiring as to their safety just as an announcer was choked off by poisonous gas in what he had said might be the last broadcast ever made the town plunged Into Darkness would be the town of War again Portland, Oregon. Of course, this was the effect of the early blackout program announced a previous week off. Few people remembered that elsewhere in the Northwest calls poured into newspapers and press Association offices by the thousands a Seattle newspaper switchboard report hysterical calls from persons wanting to know if it was true that New York had disappeared beneath the Atlantic Ocean phrases, like here they come Paula skyscrapers, they're throwing Heatwave shocked and horrified listeners one, Oregon Journal newspaper reporter returning from the coast pulled into a gas station and was informed by a pack stricken McMinnville attendant not to bother gassing up that the world was coming to an end. That was Nineteen thirty-eight Americans today are much more Savvy and have many more ways of or receiving news other than radio.

Guidelines for the Leader and Commander
"Is Jaakko podcast number two, fifty two. With Dave Burke and me Jaakko willink good evening. Dave. Good Evening Echo Charles is taking care of some other business. On the last podcast. Number two, fifty, one with Leif and we started getting into the book guidelines for the leader and Commander by General Bruce Clark but we only made it thirteen pages in two and a half hours, and it's one hundred, seventeen page book. To, recap a little bit, this is a book that I searched for for over a decade I originally heard about this book in my favorite book, which is called about face by colonel. David Hackworth. Finally, found a copy a month and a half ago. and. So here we are just a little background once again on General Bruce. Kark. World War One. World War Two Korea enlisted in one thousand, nine hundred and up going to west point colonel in World War Two. Then a general commanded the Fourth Armored Division in Patents Third Army. Battle the Bulge Distinguished Service Cross three silver stars forty five years. Of Service? And then spend a bunch of time not only leading troops but also training troops or overseeing training commands so. Awesome Career Hackworth talked about him glowingly in the book about face and That's where that's where the star took me a long time to find this book. Who did somebody texted me about it. And said, it was the white whale. that. It was definitely hard for me find this book, but we have it and that's it. That's what we're GonNa do where do you go back into this book? So here we go back into guidelines for the leader and commander by Bruce General Bruce C Clarke. This section starts off with administration some thoughts for the commander. And he says inflammation, I would like to point out the close. Interrelationship between training programs. And Sound. Overall management. So this is something you know when you're that young gung-ho leader. That just thinks, hey, where you're operate whatever that operation is whether it's shooting machine guns or whether that's out selling things or making things and you think, Hey, I'm I'm on the front lines I'm going to make things happen and you think all the administrative stuff you shouldn't have to worry about. That's not me. And I know many individuals that are like that I know one individual in particular like that whose name is Jaakko. 'cause I was definitely like that. Many commanders. I should say I. was like that when I was younger because I absolutely I realize this and you can hear. We'll talk about the paperwork drills that we had to do and how. Life. Came to me. We shouldn't have to do this stuff and I said Oh we're going to do it and we do a better than anybody else. So I figured this out but it is it is definitely a learning moment that people have and so why not learn it right now many commanders are defeated by poor administration. Imagine that just that statement many commanders are defeated by poor administration not defeated because they were tactically unsound not defeated because they made bad decisions not defeated because they couldn't come up with a good plan they fail because their administrative losers. Without. Sound Administration at Commander CanNot Succeed in his training and maintenance programs. Good. Administration is nothing more than applied common sense. I'm including here a number of items that may well be considered a checklist of indicators of sound. Administration. Number. One. Importance of time. The principal coordinating device in the army is time. Learn the proper time space factors. So you can be on time and make reasonable demands of your subordinates. So. So that's number one by the way, which is probably why you hear a lot of talk about time management. Just think about the idea that the first thing he's GonNa say is time this is someone who clearly understands that have all the resources in the world that we have. That's the one that matters the most because we just can't produce more of. I was GONNA say it's the it's the one that matters the most and it's the absolute one that we have the least control much control. You have time you zero you cannot stop it. You cannot bring it back. You gotta say the power curve. I hate that fewing. I hate that feeling and let me tell you what. I realized this a while back. So when you go to the airport if you show up at the airport late. In now look TSA doesn't care that you're late the baggage handler doesn't care that you're late the uber driver does not care what time your planes leaving they're they're doing what they're doing, and so what that does is it takes you have no control. Over that time once it started to commence, what do you have control over going to the airport a little bit earlier? That's all. That's all not that big of a deal. Go to the airport a little earlier, and you won't have to worry about TSA. You won't have to worry about baggage you won't have to worry about. How long it takes for the Uber driver or the left let's give proper. Credit or lift driver to show up and bring you to the airport. Not so so how'd you get control? You can't control time once it's unfolding you can't bring it back you have to you have to plan for appropriately. And there's a there's a sense of urgency and I have a pretty good sense of urgency and you you may have may or may not I know like at the monster especially the earlier musters when we weren't. When the backside wasn't quite the well oiled machine that it is now certainly as a well oiled machine now the early musters do. Not a Well oiled machine. So on the on the front side, people would know that when Leith and I were walking out on stage at eight o'clock in the morning, we had two hours sleep because we had to do whatever we had to do behind the scenes and that's just the way it was. I can feel I can feel. When the shortage of time in fact, I think I feel the shortage of time every single day single waking minute.
The Doctor's Wife
"So it seems to people that knew her della Dante Satorius spent her entire life using and abusing every man who crossed her path. Falling in love with her was like falling into a spider's Web. Now. This guy was lonely and Della didn't come with a warning label said Doctor Daryl Satorius. Allowed himself to be tangled into that web very quickly. Oh, he jumped right in both feet feet first as they say when they got married in nineteen ninety five. He had no idea none who wife really was yes, and I would think is a wealthy man. You do a background check, but he did find her a dating service. So maybe he trusted them and they let him down. But you know many people recognized that something was off about her. She was the pretty second wife of the doctor but there was obviously something really fake they're. Even, her name was a fake because Dante had been born della. She'd been married at least four times before and all of her previous relationships had ended badly, put it mildly some in some very hateful violence and a lot of property destruction. Those mother name is And she recognizes something was different about della since her early childhood. Oga had met Dallas Father Jim when he was stationed in Liverpool England, he was a soldier who's originally from Kentucky. Jim and August. Fell in love and married as soon as they got back to the United States. They moved into Jim's hometown of OCSAR. In the heart of the Appalachian Mountains Olga plan to move to the city of Cincinnati as soon as they could afford to do that. Yoga. Really. Went through some tough times as a girl. Her house had been bombed during World War Two, and she'd been forced to live in an air raid shelter with her siblings for five years. She was sent to North Wales and as a little girl, she watched men with large canvas bags, remove arms, legs, and other body parts from the nearby homes. So she was sent to live in Liverpool and go to Catholic. School. where she was taught how to be the ideal housewife. So they basically taught her baking cleaning doing laundry cooking, her of important things because that's what she was bound to be. There really weren't any choices presented to her, but shoe was determined before leaving England logo, go into college to study business, and she learned to type really well, well enough to get a secretarial job and she was working in the airport when she met Jim. She was only sixteen and Jim was twenty one. His family was poor. They were really kind to her. So her parents approved of him and they gave their blessing for her to move to the US and Mary. Jim You know they had a lot of kids to deal with not much money. So if they could find someone to take care of one of them, there are probably relieved to plus right? Yeah. So in August wish came true after less than two years in the United States Ogun Gym moved to. Cincinnati Jim worked in a machine shop and he made a pretty good living after Olga had given birth to two daughters Jim fell ill he died of cancer when Della was two years old. And her Donna was an infant. So isn't that incredibly sad I'm very young man in his twenties. STREGIC. Oga At this point is just maybe twenty. Yes she was quite pretty. So within a few months, she did find someone new which she really needed because very difficult back then in her situation to work and raise these little kids. So luckily she met Jean Mellow a nice guy, and he became her second husband and he was happy to adopt her two daughters. Let last Adela did not like gene. Even, though she couldn't have remembered too much about Jim she began to idolize his memory. She kept a picture of him minister service uniform over her bed calling him her daddy in heaven. And as she got older, she developed new memories of Jim and of creating them in her mind and she began to call him the only person who ever loved her. Into turf one her. Yes she was so young. It's just weird that she would do that. Bogan Jin soon had a daughter together and they named her sheryl. When Cheryl was a newborn? Della threatened to smother her. And as the family grew and gene Olga had more kids, della became worse more and more upset. Her sister Donna described Dell is just a mean kit. Della frightened. She would tell her that neighborhood dog would sure hands off. Now this is a friendly old slab of the dog and the kids played with them a lot but. Delo like to Kinda threatened on. You'RE GONNA shoot up. We'll just sounds like she was always causing trouble and the really scary part is that this dog ended up mutilated and killed an alley nearby. and. Della took Donna

It doesn't exactly work but we don't know what else to follow and we don't really know where it's going. There isn't a plan but it seems like it's right and it's following some kind of vague sentiment about what's been wrong in the past. Where do we end up? You know we end up with the car in a lake. Hick says she doesn't really like the term great-power competition it's a throwback if you will term to of an era in which you had a number of states that are equal power stature who are competing for power and influence but she's clear on who are two main rivals are today's great power. Competition Focus is primarily on China secondarily on Russia to countries. That have very different Profiles Russia is declining power. But that doesn't necessarily make it less dangerous in fact it may make more dangerous because there's incentive to gamble for Significant pay off early in quickly and so the Russians are the most opportunistic in terms of disinformation. Obviously coming after the election process. Should we be thinking of China as a threat? Yeah I think we should be thinking about China's a threat but the differences. We shouldn't be thinking of China only as a threat that the Chinese are not on a inevitable rise to be the superpower of the future and the United States is not on an inevitable decline to be fair our adversaries have been building a whole lot of big weapons. China spends about a third of what the US doesn't its military but that spending also rose by eighty three percent between two thousand nine and two thousand eighteen so it's bulking up and Russia. Well it's been a whole lot less but as we learned during the two thousand sixteen election Russia can be creative with what it has so I asked the folks in the defense conference what they saw as the biggest threat that we face was it.

Well Good morning and thank you all for taking time in two thousand eighteen in unveiling a new national defense strategy the Secretary of defense. At the time General Jim Mattis cemented the words that had just begun to show up in strategy documents the year before we will continue to prosecute the campaign against terrorists that were engaged in today but great power competition. Not Terrorism is now the primary focus of US national security. The whole thing didn't exactly come out of the blue. The world to quote George. Shultz is awash in change. China had been building military outposts on contested coral reefs in the South China Sea and Vladimir Putin had illegally annexed Crimea with great power competition between nations. Become a reality once again. General Mattis and many others drew a logical conclusion. Great-power competition was the new black. But a lot of defense folks are still very divided on what exactly this competition thing. Even means is it. Economic Technological military are we headed to another World War I asked Kathleen Hicks.

"Early rockets. In the early twentieth century there were several hobbyist rocketry groups which were founded all around the world but most notably in the US Germany and Russia. And this happened quite early on eighteen. Ninety eight Constantine Steel Kofsky a Russian schoolteacher. I proposed the use of rockets to explore space and he became the first approved that it was mathematically possible and suggested the use of liquid propellant which was quite a novel idea up until the twentieth century had been largely a solid propellant rockets that had been used in warfare. This idea of using liquid propellant rocket was tested for the first time in nineteen twenty six by Robert Goddard who was an American physicist who launched the first accessible liquid propellant rocket it only flew about twelve point five meters high for about two point. Five seconds which is not successful by our staters even for just model rocketry but nonetheless this set the stage for the space age right and then that can take us back to earn birth who In one thousand nine thirty he and his small group successfully launched their own Rocket a with h called a which was a small cone jet and assisting him with the was an eighteen year old man which is Verner von Braun but this was on the American stage. What were the Germans working on a one thousand nine hundred thirty seven the keenum Melinda Rocket Group which included people like? Oh birth and Von. Braun was assembled at the start of World War. Two their mission was to develop new weapons of war which included the four rocket Which we now know as the V. Two rocket and that was built and launched under the Directorship of Auburn Now v. Two rocket was meant to be launched from Germany in order to decimate cities right such as London but the rocket was more a weapon of terror than efficacy. A was scary largely because of its unpredictability because the V. Two travel faster than the speed of sound. It could be heard until it landed. Well this was of course terrifying however since its deployment towards the end of the war. The technology wasn't effective or powerful enough to make a major difference in the outcome of the war. In fact historian Michael Newfield says that many more people prisoners in the concentration camps tasked with making. The rocket actually died while making the rocket than who died as a result of its use in war but you know nonetheless. It was still an impressive piece of technology but in nineteen forty four. The veto became the first artificial object to pass what we know as the Karman line which is generally considered to be the boundary into outer space is a hundred kilometers up so this arguably makes the to a contender for the first human objective space. After the war the Americans took into lots of former Nazi scientists to have them work on American scientific projects. This is called Operation Paper Clip. One of those scientists was Verna von Braun and his group were moved to Huntsville Alabama where he led the. Us Army's rocket development team at Redstone Arsenal and this effort led to the development of the redstone rocket which had a dual role in the United States so it was used for the first live nuclear ballistic missile tests conducted by the United States but also it was the rocket that made Alan Shepherd astronaut. Alan Shepard the first U. S. astronaut to reach out her face. He actually became kind of popular in the public eye. He actually had a role in a Walt Disney film manage face von Braun. There is several other German a former Nazi scientists are in the Disney film Talking trying to educate people with Lola nations in the background on on how rocketry works space exploration work. There is even a case actually to be made that he is a part of the reason. Why Stanley Kubrick's two thousand one? A Space Odyssey station looks like that. Because in the fifties von Braun wrote a popular Article on Artificial gravity and space stations and so he's like fundamental also in our public understanding of space and space exploration even to extend the the space race have some ethical issues out there foundation and that should really be considered still von. Von Brown story is an interesting one and it's one that raises more questions than answers. Right how do we as historians handle a figure who in arguably achieved great things but also participated in horrendous ones in methodologically can be especially tricky because human beings often try to take control of their own narratives? Right we might ask ourselves you know. Did von Braun use. The Nazi. Party's power to help. Further his own goals trying to add war their acts of terror or did he actively support their mission. was he an anti Semite Or was he a victim of sorts? You know who was forced by threat of violence into working for the German state. It would be simple to write off the accomplishments of von Braun by claiming he was a Nazi or an amoral person with one singular gold he aimed to achieve regardless of the cost or alternatively we might be tempted to entirely dismiss his involvement in the war is being forced upon him and instead choose to venerate his role in the space race but I would argue that neither of those characterizations good history most valuable when we get our hands in the muddy reality of human existence with uncomfortable juxtaposition tragedies and cruelty and attempt to understand why people made certain decisions Rebecca Charbonneau from the Department of History and philosophy of Science Cambridge University. There She was saying we have to consider the ethics of these things and a lot of science was carried out during World War. Two and a.

"Your kids hide? You listen to me right now. This is the one that's GonNa end it all people. This is the one every walking dead episode needs to be on. Repeat right this second. You need to get prepared. You need to get the Lucille Bat. You need to find you a rick grimes and need to find you not his friend. Shane or whatever his name was. Don't get one of those. You need a Darrell. Darrell in your life right now. Because this stuff ain't going anywhere it's going to wipe us all out and Zombie land. I'm doing Zombie land. I really think that my life would be more like that that when he truly believe that I would do very well in his army I think you were developed. I would die instant because I'm telling you right now. There is a switch in me that secretly. I think most men are like that. There's there's this there's this part in the back of our brain that goes if ever laws really went out the window. I would do very well be alright. Yeah I would be all right because I man I'm too. I would never go after women and children obviously because I have morals. But I'm telling you right now you get me. That's just the way it is. You getting me because man the first place we're going to a national guard armory. I'm giving Mega. Listen to me if you have a national guard armory close to you. They've all got weapons. Safes in there and stuff so so there's always what I don't think he should be ten. Everybody our plan. I'm just telling everybody Hardaway Apocalypse survival. One don't go to Walmart like some rednecks said. Do you know how easy it is breaking a Walmart Anyway? Point is moving on the Corona Virus K. Media will make it look like it's that big is it real is it. Fake is being blown out of proportion. Dr Drew made headlines in viral viral. Enviro Clinton just last week. Let's play that right now. When they ask. Dr Drew Directly. Are we blowing the corona virus out of proportion? Are We overreacting? Assume hearing this from doctors left and right and we are not overreacting. The presses overreacting and it makes me furious. The press should not be reporting medical stories as though they know how to report it we will if we have on at pandemic. I won't know how to tell there. Were actually having a pandemic because everything is emergency people that are infectious disease specialist the CDC. The epidemiologists need to take this seriously. The press needs to shut up. Because you're more likely to influenza. So you heard it right there. Dr Drew's an actual doctor. I am not. I don't know if this comes as a shock to some you're listening. You're a mathematician. Is that all of a sudden. Anyway I OUGHTA I am not. I am an author an author. Yes him recognized author. Anyway I am not what you would call a learned doctor okay. I did not go to school for medicine. So yeah I only can go off of what the news says versus. What doctors are saying The News would have you believe that man. We are only a couple months away from World War C. Which is why named it that like it makes you think that you know that scene in the movie. World War Z where? They're trying to get over that like huge fence and they're all zombies and stuff. That's what the media would have you believe is going on man now. I will say that we do have friends. David Harris Junior posted a video from one of his daughters who is stuck on a cruise ship. Right now now. I will say this America. Listen to me right this second. I don't care how cheap you got the cruise for right this second tell go on a cruise all right. That's the dumbest freaking thing that you can possibly do right. This second is GonNa cruise also. Can you imagine Graham stuck on a cruise ship? No I really think really be that Guy. He like jumps as swim to shore. Joe I would I still had a cruise next week again. And she had to cancel her. Antoni your Joe in Juneau. We know we're not. I'm telling you right now. This stuff doesn't come die out going on cruise. You heard it right this second. You can win a chance to go on a cruise with my wife. 'cause I will get Taylor has already volunteered Because because my sweet love we got a business to run and God forbid we're acquitted anyway my wife think about these Fisher diller away to get it will be Kirsch ships. That are being teen so so do I believe that. The Corona virus is being blown out of proportion. Yeah I do okay if you look at the statistics between the flu and all these other things more people die from suicide every year that then. All of a lot of people died from the flu and yelled early. Mainly and young babies are people of all the people that have died from the corona virus. So far Dr drew talked about in video. They have all been immuno-compromised they've all had existed preexisting conditions that make them very susceptible severe effects from like the flu or things like that. A lot of the majority of flu deaths are from the elderly and children. And when I say don't take precaution of course not lash hand even with the flu. I'm not saying during the winter. Go outside with no clothes on jump in the water right like they're certain precautions. Wash your hands all the time literally all the time. Wash your hands. Disinfect your hands. I have really started trying to. I'm a face toucher with my beard. I keep hitting the microphone. I like to touch my beard lot. And all this also. I'm really trying to be more aware of that kind of stuff. You gotTa tell this story you did a lot about you engage. Oh yes thank you all right. So a lot of people in the media are talking about. It is racist to like equate the virus with Asian Americans and things like that and I agree by. Why should we do that? However the other day going into the grocery store Jake lost its points a little. Because you've already heard it but I'm gonNA tell it again. We're going into the grocery store the other day and I kid you not ladies and gentlemen a Asian American man lovely lovely guy. I'm sure I'm sure he's got a family guy. Sure he pays taxes. He walks out of the grocery store. People Okay and here's one of those things. What was I supposed to do? He walks out of the grocery store. And he's got a mask on. Okay so now. You're two out of three things happening and then. I kid you not at the Lord is my witness. He coughs underneath the mask. Okay look I'm not I'm not. I'm not a stereotypical person. I'm really not but in that moment I have never been more racist in my entire life. Okay I saw every horror film that you can possibly imagine a saw. All those like horribly flip phone videos from China with people like passing out in the street and I saw everything. Okay oldest son with me. I grabbed him. We like steer clear. This dude we go into the grocery store I say. Don't you touch nothin? Don't touch anything? I'll is like Graham engage like running back to the car. Go a mask. He was an Asian. That Graham like has a not fear that is very. It's a fear I don't like I don't like germs. I have a problem with getting sick. Yeah that's like my biggest fear is to get sick and die from getting sick which I know is dumb because the majority of people that do die probably died from getting sick or something that working with their way. Let's Kinda Funny Watch. I don't like it and we talked about last episode that there's a direct correlation like. I'm not crazy that a lot of people in the public eye or a lot of people seem really. Hey outgoing all the time. There seems to be most a lot of them. Have that fear carrying a well. Yeah no I'm not a Germaphobe by any means I'll shake people's hands and style not weird like that play but yeah I don't like the thought of getting sick. It really bothers me If I get my blood drawn I'm in a really bad mood. I'm not in a good mood. I don't WanNa talk to you. I'm not I'm not happy about so the corona virus and all this kind of stuff. I think yes. We're blown out of proportion however vic- somebody it didn't matter. He was an Asian Guy. He just happened to be an age. Do the time if I see a straight up. Ginger White Dude with a mask on coffin. I've just I don't know I mean now's not. The time now is not the time to do that kind of thing. There is the The scientists who basically because the media's blown it we had a proportion. He was an adviser basically saying that contagion was a warning of what's to come. Oh yeah the movie. Contagion is trending trade one. Everything mines agent good movie. I was talking to my mom about it yesterday at lunch. And she's a nurse and I would just say if you really concerned go to your doctor because if he has common sense they're going to tell you the same thing that we're telling you the media's blown away out of proportion so speaking of other things I would do because I don't I don't like being sick is a New York Post posted. This and I didn't talk about this last one real real news. Real Article Man. Lock's wife in bathroom over fear. She has to corona virus. Sound I would I would straight-line I'm very. I just WANNA make sure. Anyway I would totally do that. why don't you tell the fact about ninety? Five percent of our shots are so concerned about is that you know ninety five percent of all of our Antibiotics all of our medicines prescription drugs come from China. So all the conspiracies behind it it is Kinda strange that if pandemic does hit China has all the control in We don't have enough medicine. That's when it becomes bigger than the flu and my mom is is talking about that too because I didn't realize that until yesterday honestly and so it doesn't I I think that if there is any conspiracy theories behind this whole corona virus thing. I think it's more geared towards all the protesters in China as a way to grow Thing else I mean I will. I will not towards that. You know you got a huge protester issue in China because they want freedom like America. You got him singing. The national anthem wave in the American flag. How do you get them out of the streets world war? See that's how you get them out my voice going our because this is the second podcast we time and I really gave it my all. The last one guys didn't get to hear that it could have possibly been the greatest episode we've ever filled live in an emmy for me now. If he's bad that's bad. It will live in get recorded so now for forever because you will never know how justified that episode was because we lost it and let's let's get into some funnies All right ELISSA got so Kristi. Lynn Woods thirty seven basically boosted an ambulance while paramedics perform CPR on an unconscious woman. Other Oregon God place. She's not done she. Then let police officers Sheriff's Deputies and state troopers on a high speed chase up interstate five for nearly thirty miles also ramming a cop off the highway. Why wait when she was arrested? Though she didn't she didn't deny she did. She said it was their fault because the ambulance left their car or ambulance unlocks. I agree what are we supposed to do? What are you supposed to do if it's unlocked? You might as well left a million dollars in unmarked bills in front of me. I'm telling you right now. I'm taking it. I'll be real. What no man person just like. Of course you should. Sometimes you just gotTa do stuff for the story guys. She had another worry. She was arrested. One on this side. Me Count. Imagine that drinking at a bar. What did you do today? Well I stole name. Didn't tell this last time going to an easyjet plane was forced to turn back twice because of drunk passengers. Imagine being on that plane the first time they had to turn back for drunk passengers and then it happened again by people just drinking too much on your body dot flying. We just finished.

"Exactly then these phones and devices they make hits into Turkey where they are sold to brokers in a basically these brokers people like myself and others but amen these brokers these these. These espionage privateers aren't the criminals. Isn't this illegal. How are you? I'm a criminal. Ah or be it for me to say that bombmaker might be a criminal. But I don't understand surely this isn't legal. Is it that governments turn a blind aligned. Either this stuff because it's so useful to them no it is perfectly legal because basically first of all in our imagine let's say you Thomas Small You have our friends in Syria. Don't you yes. Okay so basically if I come to you whether I am a government I come to you. Thomas and I say Thomas in a we have I have heard a rumor of a basically a A coup in Damascus. Or something like that. There was a coup within the intelligence and we are trying basic. Acetone is a true or not. Can you tap into your local people. They're basically unseaworthy have heard and I mean basically you say yes of course and `and We would say okay. We want detailed report and in Bush. An envelope to you basically lock in there with you know five six thousand dollars. This is your trouble and also you can basically send gifts your friends there and say in Damascus. We need you know really good juicy information. Okay so you come back to me and you say yes we found out this this. This is not okay. That doesn't sound so illegal but you know oh come on. Sometimes you're going to be asked maybe to do something illegal or certainly immoral. How do you navigate gate the thorny moral swamp of private espionage not as well you have layers and layers of different levels of commitments so basically basically for example? I wouldn't do any may know. How can I say now within the engineer? Any extraction because basically not GonNa Festival Savall. There is so much Legality issues in behind this. So you're right in a sense because if you just kind of my work my work is information ingathering. That's it you know. So what they do with that government's do with after that. I mean that's their own business. Have you ever been in a position where you you heard. It's all on the news or heard through through networks of a strike against a facility or a strike against a person and you thought to yourself. I know I know how they knew where that guy was well to some some extent. Yes I'm not GONNA say no. It does happen but sometime. You're wondering whether because sometime you boss. This intelligence basically only to a particular government but then the Russians come and destroy it and then that's when you know that definitely it wasn't the government that it supplied supplied supplied the Russians with it. Why because they are enemies they are not talking to each other whatsoever? So then how did donations know about it. Because if I knew about it in if I new about if my source underground confirmed that this is a weapons storage facility for Nasrallah then yeah fide then basically the Russians would have their own privateers possibly sometime the same privateers who I have. Dust might have been tasked by the Russians uh-huh murky world very murky. So back to Qasem Soleimani then. He is often credited. Let's let's. Let's play devil's advocate here. So obviously you know you weren't a huge aged fan of Qassem Soleimani. You probably Smile to yourself when you found out that he had been assassinated mild danced and the house danced in the house. So but let's imagine I mean there are some people who say that Qassem Soleimani is a hero because he played such a vital role in the destruction of Isis. Well first of all he. It's not a no okay. So money did not defeat Isis. Let's put this myth to tourist. It was the American firepower firepower. In from the sky raining on is is basically that ended them because the Iranians and the Iraqi militias did not have the capability ability to just take cities and then hold them because they couldn't because only the American precision firepower massive overwhelming firepower. That did that for them. So so the money provided as boots on the ground she melih Chaman exactly. But so money wasn't doing it out of the goodness face heart. He was taking advantage. That oh this is the chaos through which I can create a massive unregulated army he wasn't into cruising men to join the Iraqi army. He was recruiting men to join a revolutionary iranian-backed army and he recruited tens tens of thousands hundreds of thousands and they they still exist. I mean even now solely Monte might be dead but they exist. What's going to happen to these Shia militia who who actually feel perhaps perhaps More allegiance to Iran than Iraq. Well that is what the protests happening right now in about is Iraq going to end block. Lebanon having a state within a state he may I mean Hezbollah in Lebanon being a state within a state having a private army private Welfare network private finance private everything which which would suit the Iranians very well exactly so in other words there's a very weakened nation state so the Protestant Iraq right now gathering momentum and not only Sunnis but also many many. She are ABS who do not like the idea of Iraq becoming just another province for Iran. So but we can understand. Why the Shia of Iraq think Qasem Soleimani was their savior because the the ultimate isis coming down the road? And anyone who's GonNa GonNA fight. Isis is probably your friend and because the same thing about in Yemen they will interview people Yemenis in the south will view them basically as saviors against the at the end do the day we cannot basically just sit there and cheer in a box of wolves fighting each other in basically and ignore the fact that there are lambs. Need to to be saved so because they're fighting each other over who will eat the pack of lambs. So who's the shepherd here is it. Is it with this newly muscular America. Erica president trump is America once again playing the role of the shepherd trying to fight the wolves off the sheep lambs. Whatever I'm I'm screwing up your metaphor I mean? I just had to have a very difficult time. Picturing trump as a shepherd basically with sticking the trial over his head. And I've heard some of these Jeffrey Epstein Christina revelations. The time imagining but I tell you something you know yes. America Erica is playing to some extent in a basically the that all of the shepherd but the shepherd as a whole is played by the nation states. We come back. Tuck again Thomas into the question of what do we want. Do we want the modern nation state to prevail because they are the best got until of safety security stability prosperity in the region or do we want Toronto National Ideologies Built on Revolutionary Ideas Perpetual Revolution Revolution that will keep shedding blood on and on and on until they build their empire on a mountain of skulls oceans of blood. Well I think we know how America would answer that question. It sides with the nation state as long as the nation state buys into America's hegemonic role as has chief shepherd of the sheep. Now that really brings us to what series two of conflicted is going to be all about in the first series stories. We focused more narrowly on the war on terror and the modern history of the Middle East in this series. We're going to widen the scope of our investigation out a bit and we're going to tell a slightly larger historical story. It's what has been called and indeed was called by George Bush senior just at the end of the cold. War Are America's New World Order America's attempt to create an everlasting prosperous and peaceful world and really really lies behind so much what we see in the headlines.
