The Murder Rule
"Usually in our criminal legal system. In order to convict someone of a crime, there are two primary factors at play the first is. What a person does their action. The second is what that person intended to do. In Law we call what a person does. Actus Reus what is the action? And what is on a person's mind? What they intended to do is known as men's Raya. And it's the hallmark of a civilized legal system. We care about an individual's actions and we care about an individual's intent. Let me give you an example of this principle. For crime of misdemeanor theft. The prosecutor has to prove to a jury that someone took something. That's the act. With the intent to permanently deprive the rightful owner of that thing that's the intent. So. Let's say. I'm in a store to buy toothbrush. And I pick up toothbrush and I leave the store. Now, that would look like a theft. Let's say that I left the store because I got an emergency phone call from my daughter's school and there was no reception store. So I rushed outside to hear the call. Or. Let's say that I left the store because I suddenly realized that I left my wallet in the car. In both of those situations I did leave the store with the toothbrush. But I had no intent to permanently deprive the store. The prosecutor could not show that I committed a crime because I didn't intend to do so. What you do matters, it does what you do matters but a person's intent according to the law also matters and this makes perfect sense. You wouldn't want to convict somebody of a crime because of an accident and Mrs just for Misdemeanor Theft. And it makes sense because in our legal system, we say. I almost have to put parentheses around say we say that liberty is paramount. Before, we're going to let a prosecutor strip you of your rights since you away from all of your loved ones, send you away from your family, your job, your career you're calling and put you in a prison sale. They should have to prove that a person did something wrong. And meant to do something wrong. However. There is one very old relic in our criminal law. Where what a person actually does and what a person intends to do. Does not matter at all. A prosecutor in this, it blows my mind to think about this. A prosecutor can lock up someone for life. For, a murder that a person did not commit a murder that everyone knows they did not commit. A prosecutor can lock someone for life and everyone knows that they did not intend to hurt anyone. A prosecutor can tell a jury that it doesn't matter that the person didn't intend to hurt anyone. And, this rule is known as the felony murder rule. And it is incredibly problematic tens of thousands of people all over the country from coast to coast are in prison because of this one single rule right now. This rule says that if a person is committing a felony, let's say robbery. And in committing that robbery, a person gets killed. The, felony murder rule says everybody who committed the robbery can now also be held responsible for the murder. That law came from the Middle Ages in England. But. It has now been banned in every country whose legal system originally came from England. It has been abolished in Ireland. It has been abolished in Canada in India it was abolished in England in Nineteen fifty six. But it's still exist in almost every state in the United States of America,

Been Caught Stealing
"Thankful faults jewelry and fine art. Maybe a casino carefully organized plans by people dressed in black turtlenecks with lots of cool gadgets close calls. What we remember as the daring heist of one of the world's most famous paintings. was really neither of those things. The heist wasn't particularly daring and the theft of Leonardo DAVINCI's Mona Lisa. Wasn't even noticed until well after it had happened. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. These days the Mona Lisa also called in Italy login Kanda and her famous enigmatic smile hang in a prominent place in the Louvre in Paris. It holds the Guinness World Record for the highest known insurance valuation in History at one, hundred, million dollars in nineteen, sixty two. So. That would be about eight hundred million dollars today. Over six million people go to see it each year. It's so popular that you can't even snap a quick Selfie of it without having a few dozen other strangers, hands, and cell phones in the frame. This popularity certainly wasn't the case when the painting was I hung in the Leuven eighteen o four or for the century subsequent. Neither was popular with critics when the artistic elite who often relegated it to the low end of DAVINCI's work it was basically just another painting. It was so unsocial in fact that it took the better part of twenty four hours before staff even noticed the painting was missing in Nineteen. Eleven. A handyman named Vincenzo Perrugia was working in the museum and he simply waited in a closet until after the museum had closed. Tuck to the painting under his smock walked on out. He was unwittingly aided by a plumber also working in the museum who unlocked a for Peruta when he found himself stuck inside. The police were called and they searched the museum. The only sign they found the Japan Kanda was frame laying on a staircase. Though police did find some twenty one other paintings in the museum. The curator's had previously reported missing. The. Search went citywide then national then international. Ships were searched before they left France or after arriving in their port of call. A reward of over half a million dollars in today's money was offered. The Mona Lisa's picture was printed in newspapers all over the world. It became a of Mona Lisa Mania. The theft of this single painting served a spawn multiple criminal enterprises. People on the wrong side of the law knew that those with more money than morals would want to buy. LEGITIM- Kanda. A pair of confidence men from Belgium hired a small army of forgers to make quality fakes, which they then sold to select around the globe. They made sure their buyers were unlikely to ever meet and rested soundly knowing that no one would let on that they had purchased the most famous stolen painting in the world. Though today, one of them would probably take a selfie with it. The huge reward and the number of fakes in circulation meant the police were inundated with leads. For two years they searched tirelessly. But Fruitlessly The sixty man strong force even interviewed, Peruta Twice. But decided, he couldn't be the criminal mastermind they were looking for. Not only did those two years not yield the Mona Lisa the police didn't even find the forgeries. The head of the Paris police retired in shame. Did, peruse, you get an enormous payday for the stolen painting. People were soon to learn that he didn't steal it for money. When ferruccio approached museum in Florence to sell them the painting, the museum's director called the police instead. After. His arrest Russia's stated. I worked in the Louvre making frames for paintings stolen from Italy by France every day I pass login Kanda and swore I would return it to its rightful home. He seemed convinced he would be heralded as a hero. This was sadly not the case but the Italian courts were sympathetic giving him only a year in prison for the world famous theft.

With all this new tech in remote schooling, what are the privacy implications
"Every week this fall, we're covering technology and education because Oh man are Monday mornings more complicated than they used to be one question we've gotten a lot is what all this tech means for privacy how much data is being collected about our kids and how it's being stored and used the good news is there are a lot of rules around that. At the federal level. There's the children's Online Privacy Protection Act Copa Furka the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and there are over. One hundred state laws dealing with student privacy bad news is not everyone knows about them. Amelia Vance's with a nonprofit future of Privacy Forum. It's pretty locked down. You had a lot of fears as ED tech was spreading and schools back in two thousand, fourteen, twenty, fifteen thousands of student privacy bills have been introduced, and so these bills ended up restricting companies from selling or sharing without consent or targeted advertising or really doing anything with student data that parents and policymakers wouldn't approve of. But there are still some tensions there about you know. When a company isn't for education and data share with it, they're not covered by these student privacy laws. It sounds like you're describing a system of laws that really could be effective assuming. Basically transparency and enforcement. So, do we have those two things I would say we're definitely. Not. Quite. Drowning but we're certainly inundated with student privacy laws and protections here. Most people don't know about them teachers. There was a great survey by common sense media a couple years ago. That said only twenty five percent of teachers had been trained on student privacy and many of the laws that have passed. Aren't necessarily passed down to the school district's who are supposed to enforce them. What do you worry about with respect to the data collection around kids? Where I get really worried is where there's weeks security in there might be data breaches. And these aren't sort of the data breaches that we often see reported where it's you know identity theft or something like that. Instead, we see the possibility of sensitive information about someone that they just don't want future employers, their future college or even their peers or other parents to know about things like disciplinary history health issues special education status. And we know from research that the number one thing that kids care about when it comes to privacy really is that inner personal privacy Keeping their business, their Business Amelia Dances with the nonprofit future of Privacy Forum.

They waited and waited. But David Powell never came out. Just after six am. And we decided that six police to canine officers would enter the woods and go in there and get POW. The remaining police were to maintain the perimeter. They wanted only a small amount of police officers to enter the woods to minimize the risk. They decided that no one else was to enter. They needed a set number of officers only. That way. If they saw any movement at all, they would know immediately, it was not a fellow officer. In other words, they were prepared to shoot on sight. The two dogs and six officers entered the woods with flak jackets and loaded shotguns.

Intellectual-Property Assets Are Getting More Valuable
"As a foreign intelligence agency were responsible for understanding a broad range of threats. Presented by governments to the United States, one of those threats include our cyber threats how nations may be using cyber to achieve their national objectives that might be intellectual property theft for example, to counter department offensively valid by accelerating foreign governments ability to actually productized particular RDA for weapon that may be targetting critical infrastructure of a country. As part of threatening that country or as part of putting pressure on a given country. How are we doing against the cyber threats are we? Barely keeping up, are we catching up? Are we getting ahead of the game or? Is it always going to be hard for the defender. Overall technology is getting more secure. Technologies Belt more securely today. So. The fundamental resilience is is improving known. You have open source products. We have lots of is looking at a given technology and helping find vulnerabilities and address them. That being said for an ever-more connected economy in ever more connected society, and as we build more connections, sometimes systems that were not necessarily built for those kinds of connections we bring and introduce new risks on the third poll the positive side there's far more awareness about those risks and how to approach addressing them identifying what are the most important assets to protect. Seems to be an effort on the part of NSA to kind of open up a blackbox and Kinda shut the reputation no such agency we want to be trusted to achieve or we believe we can uniquely contribute to team USA on either the first step. Is conveying who we are conveying the culture. That's here the commitment to American values. Certainly. When a part of our mission is an intelligence mission in a democracy, you have an obligation to ensure that the Americans. We serve feel they understand the values by which we live. And neuberger is the current director of the national security. Agency's Cybersecurity Directorate. She has held a variety of jobs in both the public and private sectors. We just sat down with an to talk about her career, her and her director. It's multiple responsibilities and how she sees a cyber threats facing our country. I'm Michael Morale and this is intelligence matters. So an welcomed to intelligence matters, it is great to have you on the show. It's great to be here. So I think the place to start and is with your career before you joined the national security. Agency. You had a career in the private sector. Can you tell us about that and tell us what you did in the private sector and then what drew you into government, service. Sure. So I was in running technology at a at a financial services company during that time period when financial services companies really moved off mainframe environments to the Web. Decline server technology. So that piece of both taking an operations and emission and its associated technology and people and culture really Shaked shaped the way I approach a lot of those problems today. And I was raised in in a family where my dad came as a refugee all my grandparents came as refugees to the US and they just. Constantly instilled in US how grateful we should be for the opportunity to be born in America and raised in America, with its freedoms with its ability to pursue one's dreams and and that we owed it for that and. I was driving home from from work in. In two, thousand six, we just done a large acquisition of. Companies of banks, custodian operations. And on the radio, they were talking about the bombing of mosque. Samara Moscow in smaller rock and just the. Soldiers dying civilians dying and the troubles there and I I still don't know why but I thought of my dad and. That's myself. Perhaps now's the time to repay a little bit of of that in some way and. I've been a graduate student at Columbia had a I had a professor tell me about the White House fellows program and encouraged me to apply and I kind of I have to admit was a bit of the New Yorker Countless New York ever. kind of put that aside and for whatever reason I just felt that calling at that moment called him and said I'll apply and fast forward I was assigned to the Pentagon. With zero military background. And you learned a lot about the culture very drawn to that shared commitment and spent a year in the Pentagon worked for the navy and then came to NSA. Couple years later. What did they doing at the Pentagon and the Navy? So I was the deputy chief management officer, the Navy essentially, the Navy had a number of broad enterprise wide technology efforts which they were working again, bring that you people mission. Technology Triangle. And they asked me to help work on a couple of working directly for the secretary of the Navy figure out why a of them were struggling and then help them get on track. So I worked on that and I often get asked by people. How did YOU END UP AT NSA? A pretty funny story in that I had a seventy six year old and I was commuting from Baltimore and the. The work life balance was a bit tough and I met somebody and he asked me about. How he was doing and I commented that I really love the work but it was a little hard for me to do the juggle. And he said, you know I happen to know that NSA standing up you director NSA standing up cyber command and I know they need people with your kind of of background. So how about if I make a phone call there? And I went for an interview commute was thirty minutes and it sounds so foolish but. That was pretty much what it took. Interesting interesting. So the private sector and then the Department of Defence which is as you know this huge enterprise and then NSA and this is a this is not an easy question I know about kind of the similarities and differences of those three different experiences. It all begins with people. In every organization missions have to adapt and change They adopted change in the private sector because perhaps you have a competitor, perhaps the customer spaces adapted. Certainly financial services saw that we're the scale of data was just increasing the scale of trains was increasing and the traditional manual processes couldn't keep up. So we automation with needed to reduce errors and help us keep on track with we're trading was going. Technology could deliver on that, but the the business of the organization had to change to fully take advantage of the technology and the way people did that mission and use technology had to change along the way. So I think in each of those organizations that taught me that for that, that triangle has to be kind of guided together to get to an outcome mission technology and people if you really want to be able to fully. Whether it's take advantage of a market or stay ahead of an adversary in our own mission here in the ICU dod that triangle has to work together and you have to communicate every those three planes together when talking about why the changes needed. So an in your tenure at NSA, you've served as its first chief risk officer. The assistant deputy director of operations, the head of the Russia's small group, and now the head of the Cybersecurity Directorate. Can you take us through your trajectory there how did your responsibilities differ from roll to roll? Absolutely, and so I came into an Santa's small team part of a small team that was standing up cyber command, the chief risk officer role was. was created after the media leaks period of two, thousand, thirteen where we learned that. Really appreciating risk mount looking at in a holistic way across partnership risk operational. Risks Technology risks. We learned that we needed to adapt the way we looked at risk and then change according to that. So I think in each of those roles. Either, the adversary was changing around us a threat was changing around us. We. Wanted to take advantage fully of an opportunity and I was responsible for taking the big picture strategic goals, translating those two measurable outcomes and objectives and helping you know contribute, communicate the why and then bringing the team of people along to get their each other's efforts was a bit different. But you know. We talked about the risk of doing the risk of not doing weighing that appropriately we talked about the insuring that as we approached new missions policy and technology move together, and certainly when we looked at the elections work in two, thousand, eighteen, the Russia's small group work we saw we're adversaries of have used influence operation since the time of Adam and Eve perhaps would have changed was again the ability to use social media to both focus and directed to have larger impact. So focusing on the Russia's small group for just a second and what was that what was the what was the mission and what were your responsibilities with regard to the two thousand eighteen election's to the extent that you can talk about that. Absolutely. So the mission was ensuring the integrity of the two thousand eighteen midterm elections ensuring that we I understood the threat second that we appropriately tipped all the information we had about the threat to key partners across the US government. Certainly, FBI from a counter infants perspective digest from Cybersecurity of elections, infrastructure perspective, and they finally that we would support Cyber Command. If if authorized to impose costs, it's were attempts to disrupt. Disrupt the election. So. After the two thousand eighteen election's president trump publicly confirmed that cyber command played a role in deterring the Russians in two thousand eighteen are they're important lessons from what happened in two thousand eighteen about how we as a country can defend ourselves against this this insidious threat. Yes. So you know across the government, we look at two key polls. Integrity one is attempts to malignly influence population whether that is to highlight social discord to highlight issues that divide the population or to. Hand up sheer inappropriate. You know share information as part of shaping individuals ideas, and then the second is potentially interfering hacking into elections infrastructure as part of efforts to change the vote and I think the first pieces, the value of resiliency. The sense that you know once trust is lost, it's very hard to regain. So the knowledge for the American public that there are hundreds of people across the US government committed to and working to ensure the integrity of our elections. When it comes to counter influence though the biggest resilience as each of us. As Americans when we're reading something asking who might be trying to influence me what is the source of that information I fully confident in that source of that information. And then finally the role of the role of technology and the role of Public Private Partnership. In as part of elections integrity. So for us in the intelligence community were constantly watching for which adversaries maybe seeking to to shape a populations thinking to shape an election and then rapidly tipping that to partners or. To the private sector to ensure that they're both aware of techniques and our countering them on their platforms. So we've since learned shocked last week the updates from deny that the Russians continue to engage in election interference, the Chinese, the Iranians, and the punchline of all that for me is it's really hard to deter. Foreign interference right and I'm wondering if it's something special about foreign interference or if it's more about cyber at the end of the day and the difficulty of seeing cyber attributing it if you see it, how do you think about that question absolutely I think it is more about cyber than about elections from a cyber perspective when we look at fully both protecting cyber infrastructure and then to your second point about attribution, there's complexity laying what we call the red on top of the we may see threats. That are talked about strategic perspective and then we partners across the US government a looking to see where does that present itself? Where are the given vulnerabilities in a given infrastructure? The powers when you can lay the two together and say, here is a nation state that has intent to interfere in whatever that is an election critical infrastructure. I Pete Best and then translate that to the tactical level to say that network scanning or that vulnerability in hardware or software may well be used to achieve the objective putting that in place, and then most importantly preventing it because at the end of the day riding report about a victim and notifying the victim is far less satisfying than being able to put that together and prevent the adversary cheating their objective. So we've already started to shift now into your new role, right which was relaunched in October I believe. So be great if you could, and if you could explain for our listeners I, what NASA's two main missions are. Again and then cybersecurity and the difference between them just to give folks here level set absolutely. So Ns as a foreign intelligence agency were responsible for understanding a broad range of threats. Presented by governments to the United States, one of those threats include our cyber threats how nations may be using cyber to achieve their national objectives as that might be intellectual property theft for example, to counter the department defensively Thallady by accelerating foreign governments ability to to actually productized particular rnd for weapon that may be targetting critical infrastructure of a country. As part of threatening that country or as part of putting pressure on a given country. So that is the threat information on the second side. And say has cybersecurity mission. We're celestial known We build the keys codes and cryptography that's used to protect all of US government's most sensitive communications thinking nuclear command control weapon systems, the president's communications with allies, and we provide technical advice to mitigate those same threats that I talked about. So the really the he integration of the two missions where we think the magic is where we can say here's what we think adversaries are seeking to do, and here's how from a cybersecurity perspective we recommend you protect against. So so what motivated and the relaunch of the directorate and has its mission changed at all really good question. So we recognize that we were at a crossroads with national security as both technology and society ships were happening. We saw only kinds of technology that people want to from small satellites to Internet of things and each of those presents huge advancements. But they also present cybersecurity risk. Along with that, we saw various nation surtees. New Technologies think North Korean crypto currencies to get around sanctions to achieve their own objectives and we said we really need to up our game to more quickly be understanding those threats and ensuring that. We could both provide advice to build new technologies as early as possible, but also to counter adversaries use of those same technologies to achieve their national security. We're GONNA take a quick break to hear from our sponsor. Dumb. We'll be right back with more discussion with an neuberger. At Lockheed Martin, we're on a mission. Your mission. Not just the next mission but the one that's two steps ahead. That's why we've not only taken the lead in hyper sonics, but we're helping you integrate technology faster than. It's why we're not only developing the laser weapons systems you'll need but deploying them in the field. Our mission is to build the integrated solutions you can depend on because the world is depending on you. So and what are the what are the primary areas of Focus for your directorate? What kind of people work there? What's their skill set and what kind of customers do you serve? Questions. So the first parties. Operationalizing Intelligence. How do we ensure that from the intelligence that we see we took anything that's unique. And timely quickly so that we can prevent the victim. So that's the first, the first piece of of work, our areas of focus are. Both understanding that giving guidance encryption, we believe encryption. A key protection particularly in telecommunications environment that in many cases is entrusted. So both in building the government's special encryption, modernizing that as well as providing advice and insights on how to best use. Encryption the text of people who work cure are like we see him any organizations abroad gamut we have intelligence analyst. We have country-specific experts have a broad swath of technical experts, encryption network technologies, hardware, and software vulnerability analysts as well but the power is weird that can be integrated where you can say. How do you build on route of trust all the way through to an end point? Had you properly defend network and take a step back and do risk analysis to say? We are the gaps in your resilience and we're should your next dollar investment to closest gaps Right, and then what about customers is your is, is it just the Department of Defense? Is that the US government is even broader than that? How do you think about who it is you're working for? Yup Great Question. So there's a specific set work we do for what we call national security systems systems carrying classified information national security information the director. Vanessa is also the national manager for National Security Systems, that's the authority under which as I mentioned, we have we build the keys codes and cryptography responsible for distributing threat information as well. So those are across the US government with a particular focus on duty. Weapons Systems. And Related Systems. A second set of key partners and customers are dhs I. D. H., S. and its role supporting critical infrastructure. And, the sector specific agencies, and like I said the the real magic of understanding the critical infrastructure, we're it's key gaps and vulnerabilities are and being able to marry that up with what a foreign government may be intending to do and providing focused insight. Across the US government, there is broad use of commercial technologies, particularly duty and and national security system. So you may have seen when we're issuing advisories were also issuing advice on how to secure and configure those commercial technologies well because we see that. Those are used all across. Sensitive, systems as well. Your director has issued I think a dozen or so. Advisories about cybersecurity threats. Can you talk about why you guys do that? What the criteria is for quitting one of those out and then how do you think about the impact they have? Do You keep metrics on that? How do you think about? Advisories absolutely. So. Our advisories other way we really do them for three reasons. One is if we see a nation state actor using a particular vulnerability against the system care about we find that it really drives urgency of action people run faster when they're pursued, and if we can say, this nation state actor is using this vulnerability. Here's the mitigation advice to protect yourself against that we see impact and I'll talk about that how we measure that impact at the end. The second thing is there's a deep expertise here because we build and we break encryption. So encryption related technologies like the peons like you. You may recall the windows ten cryptographic vulnerability in January. Those are areas we focus on because we know those are sometimes hard to understand technically hard to implement. So if we can give very practical advice, them will issue those as well to help that be put in place, and then the third would be where there's a timely need and we're getting a lot of questions and we feel that putting out a product helps guide people and thinking about how to think about security I'll give an example. As. As covid. Pressed a lot of organizations across the US government particularly duty as well to move to telework. We started getting a lot of questions about secure collaboration. which commercial tools were safe to us and our goal was teaching people how to evaluate what safe to us. So we issued a product we're laid out the different attributes like. Code is available for review its end to end Krypton and a few other such attributes, and then we rated different secure collaboration publicly available tools against them and the cool part was we had companies call and say, well, you didn't get something quite right or can we be included as well and we said absolutely, we issued a second version and then we have another one coming out next week because our goal was making it as useful as possible and also helping teach people. How to assess. Different. Products for security. You ask the question about how we measure impact. So there's three different measures we've been using. The first is, do we see patch rates go up? They'll do we see for vulnerabilities that we've talked about here is a foreign actor might be using a boehner ability to achieve an objective. Can we watch those patriots go up and it was really cool to see. And a number of cases we've we've watched that increase. The second piece is there is a very capable and active cybersecurity industry has the information shared enable them to better protect. Sensitive US government national security systems networks, and you know in the case of the Xm vulnerability that we issued, we're advisory where we talked about the particular unit of Russian intelligence using the XML male vulnerability. It was really great to see five different cyber-security entities using that to identify other. Russian intelligence infrastructure and then take that down. So that was success for us that we made it harder for that adversary to achieve its objectives, and then the third one is really the feedback on the number of downloads and the feedback from administrators saying this was useful. This was unique timely and actionable could act on it, and then in May you guys took what I thought was an unprecedented step of actually openly attributing the exploitation of vulnerability to the Russian, Gru. and. That seemed to rare to me and I'm wondering why you decided to actually name Russia in this instance. So I it is rare because as you noted earlier, implicitly attributions hard. You may have seen a prior product where we highlighted one st state using another country's. Infrastructure to achieve its objective and then highlight he just hard attribution is. So when it's done, it needs to be done with precision to be confident. In that and we chose to do it because. We see that it makes targeted network owners more quickly patch and secure and build the resilience of their systems network administrators have way more vulnerabilities to address than they have time for or frankly money for and way more alerts than they can act on. So we can say this particular vulnerability is being used by a nation State Intelligence Service. We see them we see network administrators moving quickly and addressing it, and that's a fundamental goal. Fundamental goal is improving cybersecurity. If you kind of step back and look at look at the big picture here, you know, maybe from a thirty five thousand foot level how are we doing? The cyber threats are we barely keeping up? Are we catching up? Are we getting ahead of the game or? Is it always going to be hard for the defender. In this game in because the guy on the offense can always come up come up with something new how you think about sort of where we are in the history of of the threat of cyber and defense against it. I think we points overall technology is getting more secure. Technologies built more securely today. So the fundamental resilience is is improving you know when you have open source products, we have lots of is looking at a given technology and helping find vulnerabilities and address them. That being said were an ever more connected economy in an ever-more connected society, and as we build more connections, sometimes two systems that were not necessarily built for those kinds of connections. Data Systems. In that way, we bring and introduce new risks. On the third poll on the positive side, there's far more awareness about those risks and how to approach addressing them identifying what are the most important assets to protect and ensuring good practices are in place and it's far easier than ever to put that in place. So I think it's a mixed story on the one hand more more technologies built more securely, and there are communities of individuals working together to ensure their secure on the other hand far more. Technology some of which. Is connected in ways that bring risk in ways that we always have to and I guess the third part, which is where we started adversary seeking to take advantage of those risks to achieve their objectives. So. If you if you were standing in front of a large multinationals board of directors in you're talking to them about cybersecurity. What's the one or two things that you would absolutely want them to take away from from your conversation? What is the tangible thing you most want to protect and what's the intangible thank you most want to protect. So if you're drug company, what is the intellectual property that's going to be your next potentially big drug big driver of economic growth, big driver of healing, and then second what's the biggest intangible? Thank perhaps, that's your reputation. The way you treat your employees, the price, the prices that you charge and what you're, what you're. How much you mark that up. Make sure that you're protecting both carefully make your your cyber security commensurate with with the risk presented to you if you lose either one. And you mentioned you mentioned Skater Systems and I'm not sure that all my listeners know what those are just explain that and then is there something? Is there something special about protecting data system from protecting? Normal network absolutely. So Skater Systems are essentially control systems for the core areas of infrastructure in a given country in a given company. So think power systems clean water drug manufacturing. and. Those are. Those are often complex system. So what's unique about them is you know those systems over the years were often built four reliability in the event of a bad storm that power system would come back online with confidence as. More technologies got connected. So for example, the ability to measure. Use of power the ability to measure confidence in in water and chemical level. Some of those systems got connected to network systems that provide a way to access them. One of the joint products we recently issued between Ns. WAS An ICS product because there had been some public articles about. a given attack against skater systems in the Middle East, and we wanted to ensure that we together with. One of our closest partners was providing technical advice to. Skate entities in the US based on what we were learning about those attacks. So interest, a couple more questions you've been terrific with your time. Seems to be an effort on the part of an essay to kind of open up the black box and showed the reputation no such agency right. Your conversation with me thinking example of that why is that a priority for for the agency and for General Nakasone? I in the cybersecurity mission fundamentally if we're not trusted we can't achieve our intact. People take advice from those they trust and the power of. Across the US Government Team USA work cyber. There each organization plays its position within that role. You Know My counterpart at Digest Chris Crabs often talks about them being the national risk managers. At an essay, we believe what we can bring uniquely is that integration of intelligence series of seeking to do what their capabilities are, what their infrastructure looks like and how to defend against cyber security advice to counter that, and that's always continuing because technologies change adversaries, goals change, and the resilient always has to be increased to meet that. So we want to be trusted to achieve what we believe. We can uniquely contribute to team USA on cyber. The first step to doing that is conveying, we are conveying the culture that's here the commitment to American values, and certainly WanNa part of our mission is an intelligence mission. In a in a democracy, we have an obligation to ensure that the Americans we serve. Feel they understand the values which we live. So your your former colleague and my really good friend Glenn Gerstl road. Op Ed about a year ago about what he saw the. Profound implications of the Digital Revolution on national security, and he raised a lot of concerns and among those was the sheer pace and scale and volume of technological change and. And data that's GONNA force intelligence agencies including NSA to fundamentally change how they do business I was GonNa say thinking big picture about those kinds of challenges. What are you trying to tackle I? Would've the adjustments look like, how do you? How do you think about the challenge that Glenn laid out? Absolutely, so I from the perspective of large amounts of data and ensuring, we can make sense of them. Ensuring that we can do big data analysis to help. Triage the information we identify and determine what are people are big assets put their time on to determine he's and how to act on them. So for example. We we're looking at machine learning to classify malware and we're certainly looking at. Machine learning potentially to help us identify vulnerabilities scale particularly when we look at systems that represent thirty years of technology like muffins systems, how do you secure a weapon system? That's been out there and represent each phase of technology and have confidence in its resilience and in command and control. And then finally. We have an obligation to both bring those technologies to be on our mission and understand how adversaries might use that and manage that accordingly. So for example, as we think about artificial intelligence and the potential to automatically. Direct weapon. In the United States we have strong values around how we would think about automation versus human control. In other countries around the world, there might be different ways that those kinds of decisions are approached. So how do we ensure that we both? Bring that integration of. Compliance and technology to the way we pursue it but also be aware of those gaps and keep an eye on the risks of those gaps. And you mentioned you mentioned people and you mentioned people a couple of times and and just took two questions about that. One is given the competition that you face with all of these cyber security firms and. Your folks must be very attractive to them, and their skills are quite valuable in their private sector. How how difficult is it for you to recruit and retain talent? Really thoughtful question because you asked two questions in their recruit entertained. So. From the recruit side, we get really great people. On the routine side. We have a really compelling mission. and. What brings keeps people. Here is the sense that they're contributing to something bigger than themselves. That is challenging fulfilling. It's on us as organizational leaders to ensure that each person has that opportunity to contribute what they can uniquely bring chew to that mission. And one of the one of the cool aspects of the Cybersecurity standup has been people who have left to call in and say, Hey, I'd like to come back I learned a lot. In the private sector, the missions, calling me and like to contribute again, and we've hired a number of them back and continuing to increase that and part of the message we have when people if people do decide to leave is to say that is great. You will continue to contribute to the nation's security. You'll learn a lot in the five at sector, and if you ever want to come back the doors open. What do you? What do you want the American people to know about the women and men who work for you. That, they're committed to the values. That this country was established for. That there are significant threats to the United States, our allies and to those values, and that not always can we talk about those threats because? By impact sometimes intelligence community, even the security mission has to operate in those shad in the show does so. Trust our values, trust that we are proud Americans. We swear an oath to the Constitution of the United States, and if you do question it or if you want to learn more roll up your sleeves and come into the for a few years and get to know what yourself because each person has unique abilities and a unique ability to contribute to their to their country in whatever way they choose whether that's government are in the private sector. But if you ever doubt it come on in and work here and and raise your voice and be a part of it. It sort of takes you back to what your parents taught you to. It really does it my dad grew up in in communist Hungary and In the beginning when I came into government, he would call me on the phone sometimes and switched to a foreign language and. I realized that for him growing up in another country. Is that complete trust of government that I American born? You know have that doesn't mean it's trust and verify it's from verify but there are things that I take for granted growing up in this society that I don't know if he ever will. So being able to look at things through his eyes and through mind make me realize how fortunate we are to be here and how much we have obligation to. To ensure it stays that way. And thank you so much for joining us and thank you for your service. Thank you so much for your time.
Chicago looters smash Ronald McDonald House with terrified sick kids inside
"How sick do you have to be to smash the windows? Of a Ronald McDonald house. Ronald McDonald. Houses are scattered around the country near Children's hospitals, typically or hospitals that serve Children there for surgeries for specialties in certain cities. And it allows the families to stay for free. In these areas when they can afford room and board if their kid is hospitalized at a hospital nearby. Thank you. Imagine that black lives matters protesters or anarchist or anti for whoever they smashing windows and I say black lives matter because we have this organizer that aerial, Atkins is encouraging theft and smashing and looting. So we know of at least one black lives matter. Organizer Just awful. And the reports from Chicago media that the families and in some cases some of the sick kids, actually not in the hospital, but there for treatment and staying in the Ronald McDonald house and maybe going to the hospital for daily. Outpatient treatment were in total fear. As this week, the looters they trashed and smashed the front door and windows trying to get inside the Ronald McDonald house. So if they got it, what the hell were they going to do to these innocent families and kids? Just disgusting. The Ronald McDonald House. This location in Washington are in Chicago. Rather this location. Chicago says that more than 30 families, including some sick Children with them. Were absolutely terrified as the looting and the ransacking happened earlier this week on Monday. They were very concerned. There was a lot of activity right in front of the house people making choices that could put them at risk and put our families at risk. So the staff was frightened. That's Lisa Mitchell, who's with Ronald McDonald House charities. Gave an interview to Wools Television, ABC seven in Chicago. I mean, how despicable And it turns out that the families and their Children they were this Ronald McDonald House in Chicago because it was close to the Lurie Children's Hospital. That's five blocks away so they could walk there easily easily get transportation there. And here you have the looters and the rioters smashing the Ronald McDonald house. I mean, that's just a Lo of lows, Charitable facility that helps family and sick Children. It's unbelievable. The windows and the front door had to be boarded up because there were destroyed. It's disgusting. So that's the Chicago story on what happened earlier this week.
Man Sold Stolen Art Taken From Chicago's Deerfield Storage Unit With Help From Employee: Feds
"Year old sheriff Bill Man is now charged with wire fraud tied to the theft of a collection of expensive artwork. The U. S attorney's office in Illinois is accusing John Garcia of Cheryl Ville and associate Of stealing nearly 160 pieces of paintings, sculptures and rugs from a storage center in Deerfield and reselling the items of thousands of dollars. The order of the stolen goods noticed the items were missing when they visited the storage facility back in May. That's a Garcia, who also uses aliases. John Adams, John Adam Ito and Michael Chapman kept the stolen items at a storyteller in Orland Park in a home in Highland Park. Keith
The Hippie Skyjacker, Cathy Kerkow
"On October Sixth Nineteen fifty one amid the lush forests and clear lakes of Coups Bay. Bruce and Patricia cargo brought their first child into the world. They named her Catherine Marie Cocco Kathy to her family and friends by nineteen, Fifty, seven, six year old Kathy had three younger brothers and two unhappy parents. She was too young to understand her mom and dad's problems but old enough to notice that her father was particularly detached though Bruce worked as a truck driver to support his family he dreamed of a life as a musician unfortunately, that wasn't the type of career one could have in coups bay especially with four young children to feed. But while Kathy's father felt trapped in frustrated, he loved his kids. So he tried his best to stick around for them. One day during the summer of Nineteen, fifty-nine Bruce and Patricia to children out for a picnic eight-year-old Kathy, an adventurous type slipped off with one of her brothers to catch salamanders. As they caught critters in jars to black boys, approached her and her brother although she didn't know Roger and see Venice Junior by name Kathy recognized them. The holder family had been the talk of the town after a racially charged attack on one of the youngest sons as Venice junior watched the to unsupervised Kirk Oh kids. He saw an opportunity for retaliation he wanted. To beat them up like the other kids had done to his own brother but Roger wouldn't have it instead ten year old roger approached the girl with glasses and asked what she was doing with the Tadpoles. Kathy corrected him. She was catching salamanders. Roger enjoyed the girls spunk but his brother pulled him away he and Cathy waved goodbye hoping to see each other again. Ultimately however, the budding friendship was cut short when just four days later, the holder suddenly moved to California but Kathy wouldn't forget Roger Holder and their argument over Amphibians. In. The latter years of her childhood Kathy, watched her parents relationship completely deteriorate by the time she turned ten her father's musical ambitions had finally gotten the better of him. He ran off to Seattle in hopes of making it in the big city. This forced Cathy's mother Patricia to take over as the family breadwinner. Meanwhile, Kathy had no choice but to keep the household running and look after her three younger siblings before we continue with Kathy, psychology please note that I'm not a licenced psychiatrist or psychologist, but I have done a lot of research for the show. According to sociologist Monica Kirkpatrick Johnson when kids are forced to take on serious responsibility, they view themselves as older than they are. This is called subjective age and can lead adolescence to believe their maturity levels exceed those of their peers as Kathy's mom took on a full time secretarial job kathy nature her brothers were fed clothed and always ready to go to school on time in many ways, she became the second parent in the home. If, the child chooses to take on additional burdens that will likely manifest into positive characteristics down the line but negative effects may emerge when a child is forced into roles that demand them to perform as though they're older than they are Kathy may have appeared wise beyond her years but really she was merely mimicking adult behaviors. This type of pseudo maturity May. Increase. The likelihood of problems like substance abuse and increased sexual activity in adolescence for Awhile Kathy showed no signs of any behavioral issues she continued to care for her younger brothers as she always had an she applied that same level of dedication to her studies taking on many extracurriculars when she started high school among them were choir, Latin club track and community service. But by sixteen something changed with her brothers now, older county didn't feel so obligated to spend her time caring for them more than that acting like an adult for so long had taken its toll on Kathy, who still repressed the pain and anger from her parents separation. Unable to escape her resentment she rebelled she quit the track team dropped out of choir and stopped volunteering. Kathy dumped her boyfriend for a twenty something beach bomb every attempt her mom may discipline Cathy was met with verbal sparring. When eighteen year old Kathy graduated high school in June of Nineteen sixty-nine, her prospects looked bleak while others left with career goals and college plans Kathy kept dating and partying. So for the next two years, Kathy bounced from one random gig to another unable to hold anything down at first it was just laziness. Eventually, her indiscretions escalated while working at a drugstore she stole amphetamines for her friends when she was caught and subsequently fired it didn't seem to bother her in the slightest to make ends meet. Cathy resorted once more to theft.
Cyber Safety, How to keep your identity protected using mindfulness and practical tactics
"How you doing Sandra? Hi. How are you doing? Thank you for having been your show. So, matty here. Right absolutely. So we're talking today about identity and cyber. Theft here. So give us a little bit idea on what that's about what does identity theft what is cyber theft? What does all that stuff? Of course? Let me start why I started. Niger, any may be. Definitely will get into into whether they cybersecurity are cybercrime or identity out. That okay with you. Sure. So I was returning a many many years ago I was returning from these things. Colombian. So I mean, the plane were landing in Miami and the pound announces that Homeland Security. Were boarding the plane. I course to ask for a handed to the to the agent and at the time I, head out these. It was relocated recently to the US. Ns I had my passport to the agents. then. He's next thing I know I'm the only one that being score of the plane by the two officers. And enthroning to the room you the. Famous rooms. that. Are In airports in I, don't know what's happening. Out. I'm about to connecting fighting my husband's waiting for Chico. So ten hours later and handed back my passport and is revoked. Few weeks later I mean Venezuela my native country and I'm trying to process my. Mom to processing again, you sign I had a lot of support from Maya Turks from my former employer journey. So we are in to again and. It was interesting officials. They kept asking me about China. Why we're doing China. China who is your contact? Like I never been in China. beating know what they were talking about. Some how when? S Model China go to hold of my information and was smuggling women into the US using my identity. Yes. So humid slate, you know everything I convinced, of course, a smuggler I gave my new visa and a back home two weeks later and returning from Euro my job requirement to travel a lot. And as we are going to. Control. I. Give My passport booth. I'm right back into that room. Because I have to. The, real me over and over that for six years. Yeah. So when I going everything was Chinese I. Mean it was really crazy at nobody wanted to travel with me a united in my almost wanted to travel with me. and. Finally. made the citizenship, my aspirin I changed my. Everything Courses Okay and at the time I was working tonight not. Having in the industry for over Twenty Years Community? It non no it was identity. It was not in the news. He was not like every day right now at breach or cyber drive or this or that. Back back in that day in that time, it wasn't so I couldn't make the connection. So few years later, I changed my career and I join cybersecurity cybersecurity? Area. Industry. And I realized what happened to me, and what happened you know when someone takes your identity with Tony, personage you for their gate. and. You know eat my corporate career I did that I? was very passionate about. Training and education awareness and Allison Park job that I enjoy the most. So I wanted to Redo it at a bigger scale as I left my corporate all by did your original question about what is at Know when stolen takes something from you. And wince when they break into your life, and that can be very dramatic experience and it can be for many reasons financial reasons it could be for. Someone inside your company that has. Either made a mistake or by attention. Jober that is you and ninety. Attack you could be for like in my case, there was a vying for for that criminal to have my identity so he can use it for him. So there are many life happens. It's It goes on all the time. We don't always hear about identity theft on the news I might do commercials about it. You know when the advertising different products, but it's something that a lot of us don't even really hear about. So how does that happen? How does someone? Get your information. So you can happen. Through many different things that can happen through your social media, it can happen through your email can happen through when you give out your credit card in a restaurant. It could happen when when when you ride formation with with a doctor. Often, office I mean, there are so many ways. Jury information can be obtained. We share a lot in social media share. Many different things. That are personal and that that is one thing that can use. Of you do that. You know sometimes we don't hear the news a lot about identity issue i. think we should do a because there's a new victim, every two seconds. A new victim I mean someone right now? has just being victim of identity DOPP and there's different decrease appointed. You know sometimes we someone let's say takes your credit car. And data charges in your credit card and probably most have had situation and the bank context you. Just have to get a new credit car. Scare of it. So it's a degree of identity theft is in the financial. Hesitation of identity theft, but it is. Your credit car on and bought things on your behalf. But it wasn't as faithful as many other situations are obviously. More were personnel or or moines more invasive.
"theft" Discussed on Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone
"Thank you man. All right we're back Paula. Yeah guess what what you know. Our show show is ranked number twenty nine in the United Arab Emirates. Ed Thank you do by twenty nine with Iran Dubai tastic. Yeah thanks and we're global reach Global Mike thanks. A segment is called better so I'm not going to be able to go to any country without twenty people. Flocking me. Yeah you gotta be careful in the UAE. Ya Yeah no big deal like map and cross off where it can't go anymore mustache well an additional mustache and ah your mustache exactly. I gotta go about nothing. Nothing now they say number. Twenty nine and comedy podcasts. Of course in the U A comedy. PODCASTS are strictly forbidden. Don't like sneak in their Knicks need to the board of death in their neighbor country. Let's find doubt. We've got our crackerjack producer Tony Anita Hall here to tell us the need to knows about the UAE. Welcome to Tony Forbid donated clever clever. We are Mrs Kobe. It seems like you always come out and Tony appeared love Tony. I love elections but granddaughter. I do have to do but I do not have good. How old's your daughter just never had kids? I had no children really well. It's not too late. I'm sure you're in. The captain can still get busy. Valentine's Day there is no longer available for Ugh. Oh Six oh he's he's become impudent. No no Oh he's past. Oh Oh well we it. Bring the room down. Mrs culpepper. Very sad tragic tragic. I would like to hear no more about that says please please no more for details. Really Voices. Yeah that's that's that's horrifying way to go and this guy word is on other people. Were wanted it that way. Zhao tyrone talks which is the poisoning by cheese or other dairy product Okay well that's good to know. Now let's turn to the UAE kind of a cheese was particularly. I honestly culpepper. Nobody needs to know. Do you think I sorry to interrupt Tony. No you go ahead Tony tell us a little bit about the absolutely. I'm a big fan of Youtube. Mrs culpepper well thank you. Apparently the rubers interests swampy lake probably so the. UAE is a constitutional monarchy at the tip of the Arabian Peninsula and it consists of seven emirates. Okay okay where where Emirates emerets our provinces states oh. I didn't know that autonomous state absolutely California California California. Yeah exactly nothing at all California. Absolutely hopefully amusing song that helps helps you remember it. No I'm Abu Dhabi Abu Dhabi. I do the Sun Dhabi. That sounds just like something. Scooby Doo would say. That would be robby. Robby Aaj Mon- Dubai Food Jira Razzle Karma. I had Fujaira want. Yes painful a little drink a lot of cranberry juice. Yeah go ahead Sharja and a Mulkey Wayne. I'M OUT QUYEN MHM boy. They're gonNA hear you know how you know you look up a word like a dictionary word on the computer sometimes and they'll have someone do the pronunciation for you. You were going to get that job for that. Last Emmerick give working for Bonnie Burn. So you know I had no idea that it was. I didn't know that the five Emirates they're different states. There's United I get. It never even occurred to me what that meant cajal the way I found this really interesting. Poppy seeds are source of opium in are banned substance in the UAE was repressive there. Oh are they repressive. Won't allow poppy seeds well. Well it's an ingredient muffin for God's sakes how are they with blueberries and brand are they as strict with blueberries and brand. Don't even get her started. Doesn't seem right. Yeah doesn't seem number Walnut. Oh my God head cut. Oh no but getting if you have. Poppy precedes you can be thrown into jail and also a lot of people have been prosecuted in jail and Dubai for public displays of affection. PDA'S PDF it's called PDA's public displays of affection rolling less like what kind of displays of affection like little look peck on the cheek. That kind of thing that can do time for that. You would kind of cut into the whole honeymoon tourism business and Definitely and also you need a minute. Yeah it's like a big destination. Uvira are allowed to snuggle on the beach or no no absolutely not. I was thrown into jail and women can't be alone with other men who aren't their husbands so they have female cab drivers. Who if you're a female and you WanNa ride ride somewhere you have to get in with a female cabdriver? Oh my gosh. I don't see how where popular podcast there. Oh it must be. We must be like underground ground there some secret in their cats.

"And we're back with Paul Gordon from so cal safe here on. Nobody listens to ball bounced on Paul. This is all fascinating stuff. Let me ask you this. You design safes yourself right. We have occasion occasion when clients would come to us have a special need. They need somebody who's a reverse dropped. WE WANNA add doors or reverse drop. What does that so in other words normally a safe will drop from the front? So you drop the meeker deposit in the front of the safe drops down into an internal compartment actually reverse drop it drops in the back of the safe. So why would you want that. In in this particular case we designed to save that go through the wall. So the petitioners on the other side could make a drop contribution dropped through the snorkel tube into the safe petitioner's Catholic dicey so you designed to save for the Catholic diocese I designed to save for the Catholic Church here in Los Angeles. It's the pope's Piggy Gigi Bank. That's really fantastic. I think in touch with you did you come. They come into your store and were they wearing the robes. At the time we've been around for a few years. Yeah and we nineteen fifteen. Yeah I been there about that long. So they'll come in the lab ask ask who to go to because of a reputation and by the way there are a lot of great safe companies around here. We've been here for a long time. I think what sets US aside. My I people ask for specifically is the way we do business. Yeah we what every client is like our family. I pick up my phone on Saturday. A pickup in the evening every client is like your family so you're driving them to their soccer games doing their Mike ask you do understand taking a family and you can feel free to not answer this question. Have you ever designed to say for client where you start the feel like maybe you were designing a safe for a criminal you know. I have a pretty good sense of who were working with. And the payment method so we work a lot with the cabs business the cannibals. Yeah because they're not allowed to be even though it's legal to sell it. There's still not allowed to have bank account so they deposited into so true. Yeah thank you. It's a huge problem. They just have to spend it out they have to. They're not allowed to save. They have to put it under mattresses cruises or put it in safes because because although it is legal in many states now it's still a federal crime and banking is federally controlled. Am I getting this right hundred percent. Wow wow that just seems crazy. Because we're not really encouraging our cannabis sales people to have thrift. Yeah or run responsible business. Yeah exactly exactly you have to take it upon themselves. What about taxes and stuff like that and what about laundering money for the Russian this? Yeah and think about this the cannabis industry. You can't throw your product we stories cash because you can't stay well because you're cashless Melik Pie. You know the so you don't think you've ever designed for like a drug lord so you could say the name Bill Bar Ring a bell for you lately. How about Pablo Escobar? Kabar familiar with that one. But you could say. We did prior to the cannabis. Industry being legalized. We did sell knowing knowing that they were cannabis dealers and we tax them just like anybody who treat him like any other business. I can't regulate what you do with your safe. Yeah it's not a provided a head into safe. That's not your problem. You get the business. Yeah you're going to get it out by drilling a little hole. Oh No one's going to get to that head had absolutely not it's body you said during the break that like people don't use dynamite to get into safes anymore. Oh well first of all it does kind of created a nuisance it well. It makes a big noise. Your neighbors will probably go on next Paula Lane by every day with the Jackhammer the construction not the neighbors themselves controls intention to you. Yeah sure and there are especially to show up with Wiley. Coyote at your side saves a really heavy if it fell in a coyote wooded accordion coordinate the coyote. Or would it do more damage than that. I think it would more saucer him. I knew those cartoons were not accurate. Man Tom when I stay in hotels their safes like in the closet and they say you know. Put your valuables in here. Is that just asking for trouble. Wow so we we sell safe to hotels. The kind of safe that you have in your hotel room is very easy to manipulate an open wheel. Why is that it just the construction? I very simple way of telling how good product safest knock on the top of it and you're going to if someone knocks back uh-huh don't open the door. Can you get out from the inside. That's a great question. The answer is no no on traditional safes always put a key for the inside of his safe so he could get out of his cell. Houdini put a canned side. Great Joe's for me. He's not doing a lot of shows anymore. I got some bad for you. This kind of heartbreaking. Well actually because remember that book devil in the White City. I love that Yeah it's a really good book while the serial killer in that book Unfortunately one of his victims he put her in a big safe and she didn't she didn't and get out and there are actually footprints in the wall and I think the wall was like metal inside the safe was it not and a really strong material l.. But she dented it trying creepy yeah. I was waiting for punchline. There's no I'm a funny little locked into save story for you. Okay so Let's say Billy Ocean came to you and said I want you on the team we're GonNa go to the Mirage Casino Hotel and we're gonNA bring this or the Bellagio. How would you go about doing it? How would you plan your part of it safecracker? Well you have to have someone. That's an expert at breaking into safes. And you want to do it in a fashion. That people can't find a way they won't know that you've been there right right okay. So we recently had a client that someone had broken into their safe. They drill the holes and everything. Wow well when we came back can we looked at the placement of the holes in the wrong spot wrong spot right so they went back and drill the holes but knew the combination. So are they opened the safe so whereas the where you would drill to put your scope in was in the wrong place. Oh so they wanted to make it look like they didn't know the combination but you were able to figure out that they had to know the combination because the homes were in the wrong correct. Tony Levers how they do they do. They open the themselves. After high often. Police departments try to open the safe themselves. Yeah because it's fun right. Now they know hours and they all because some of them are on the take. That's why all right. And if they destroyed the safe no big deal we can always open it so there was like to try their first hand at it the concrete like this. They generally come to us. I yeah and we can open it again with enough time we can open just about any you go one two left due to the right onto the left to left three the right to left while it's like you're you're ready to go work for this company. Yeah he's this. It takes a lot of time. Well how many combinations numbers would that be. It'd be a lot. I believe. That's the yeah. That's the mathematical inter a lot. A Lot Awadh. Wow so by the way the safe you made for the Catholic diocese due to work. Did it meet. Of course this point. Yeah so what do you mean. Of course I'm on my way to the Catholic diocese tonight to see if you can crack crack so much about it. The police a great question. Everything we make gets triple checked so before it goes there are three six is three is that is ah. That's all on one one person three pirates. Yeah I it looks good to me. You couldn't get in three is an apparent checkout everyone of those states. Well thank you. I got a lot of valuable information out of that.

You know, they had like I wasn't arguing it's genetic. Okay. But I'm saying like this. That's not like like, I think that the I think that the peacefulness of the social democracy go hand in hand. But I also think that say, okay, talk framing it in terms of who's going to be thrown in jail. Whatever those jails look like we certainly agree that if they're going to be jailed shouldn't look like now, but that in terms of framing is kind of red herring. Because look according to you right there. Our property claims that should be enforced with whatever level of force techs. You agreed earlier that that might include jails, you violent criminals, it's possible. Okay. You express, you know. Okay. But not for you know, but not for like not for theft. Not for you know, like it depends on what kind of theft you're talking about theft can be very violent crime depends. But but not certainly not a peaceful crime. Okay. So but theft that that didn't involve in physical harm to people. You know, you'd never support jail for that. Personally. I would not Joe John shoplifting going to jail. No. I'd say I think as if we're not living in a bar barrack civilization. We can come up with some type of there should be some consequence for it. But no, I don't think you should be sent to a cage for shoplifting shoplifted probably agree with you. I mean, I think that we can I think breaking someone's house when their families there or something like that or you know, like, that's very different crime. How about how about if you like like, you know? Grand theft auto, right? You always like if not the game, but the crime murdering people. What are we talking about the actual crime? Right. That's all I did. I never finished level damn game. Just get lost killing people. All right. You get like one done killing people, by the way, just a heads up that we have in about eight minutes, we got a rat. But anyway. Social theft auto the crime grants again. Okay. Of since we do have eight minutes left. I don't wanna get too lost the weans about like exactly which crimes, you know, might merit some sort of jail time, which shouldn't especially because I actually think that this is something where our impulses were very similar. And you know, like, I think that I don't I'm not optimistic that you could that we can have a society where there was no form of involuntary confinement for punishment.

"And you come back, and you said don't worry I took care of the problem. And I said to you taking care of the problem is murder. What saying taxation is theft is saying is fuck your euphemism. That's murder like in this example. Now, if I said, you taking care of the problem, quote, unquote, this term that you use is murder, and you said, well, Dave committed a logical fallacy you you're saying that taking care of the problem is wrong because it's murder and it's murder because it's wrong. This is circular logic. Don't you see where the point that the point is that government uses this euphemism called taxation, the argument is that it's now the argument that's just an assertion say tax, Asians that the argument is that you are the rightful owner of your money. Somebody is taking your money against your will off the threat of violence. And that would meet the definition of theft, which yes has been considered wrong for I believe we could go back to the ancient Sumerians theft has been considered wrong. So yes, it is. It is kind of given that murders mentioned Severi, certainly tax. Did consider that wrong. So the, you know, the idea of theft, certainly considered wrong. No, listen, I agree with you also goes all the way back to much the beginning. I mean, not every Perry and there's been different forms. But if I would say this to me you can disagree with the assertion or you can disagree. I I think this would be the distinction that you were talking seven mile knew about of validity verse aound, so you can disagree with the soundness of the argument. But if I were to say taxations theft theft is immoral therefore taxation is immoral that is. You may not see that sound. But it certainly is not a logical contradict. Yeah. Well, this question begging argument that is valid are generally valid, right? So the problem with question begging arguments, isn't that? They're not valid right. Valid just means if the premises are true. So as the yes fairness, so it's generally feature of question begging arguments. Right. So what I say question begged arguments, but anybody's not familiar with the term that just means circular arguments arguments where the conclusion of smuggled into the premises. So like just an example of that if you were to say, I have I know that my dog weighs seventy pounds because of my scale says at seventy pounds, and I know my scales accurate because it accurately measured my dog at seventy pounds that would be circular logic. You're using the same tool to verify the other. Absolutely. Okay. Just. Yeah. That would be that would be a nice example of of circular logic beg the question, of course, arguments like that are generally valid because if I say Xs true, therefore Xs true. Well, if true that it's true. So if the premises true, the conclusion is true, they're not bad arguments because they're invalid they're bad arguments. Because they haven't given anybody who doesn't start out a green a new reason to you right oppressive suasion, right? Which is alternately what we're trying to do make arguments. Now, I think that in the case that you gave me I do think that that you probably if your if your purpose is to like convince the purse to Bruder right that they just did something wrong then. Yeah. I think that you probably have made a circular argument, but it doesn't really matter because the obvious of the truth of what you're saying is so overwhelming that like if don't already get it. You're not gonna let convinced them like right in there. But in my example, if I was not just talking that murderer, but talking to a lot of other people who are around this murderer, you might convince some of them, I doubt convince any tax collectors at the IRS that. Tax. That's I think. Really go..

"You know argument is I believe this because of this other thing, okay? I'll get to that as you're right. The statement alone. Taxations theft is an assertion. It's not an argument. There is a fairly obvious argument. That follows from that assertion that you could and I'll be happy to kind of break that debt, but I just wanna make sure I'm understanding you correctly. So it's not saying taxation as theft is an assertion you disagree with. But it's not a logical straight saying taxation is theft and they're short, and therefore it's wrong is a logical foul. Okay. And here's here's why I think it could. It's a logical fallacy agree. It's not obvious on its face. You think? Okay. We'll what's wrong with that. Right. You know, we all agree. That theft is wrong. Right. I say that goes at this category of things that we all agree wrong. So. So it's raw right? That follows what's what's what's bad about that. Well, of course, it does follow. But I think that it's circular. So the reason that I think that it circular is that what we mean by theft is taking away something that we don't have a moral right to take. Right. That's that seems like what theft is. So if you say it's wrong because it's theft. Then you're saying that it's wrong because you don't have a moral right to take it which I think is a bit like say it's wrong because it's wrong. In other words. I think you're smuggling the conclusion that it's wrong into the premises. Right. The reason that people are get come to different conclusions about this issue is that they're gonna disagree. Like, let's let's say for the sake of simplicity, we have Herman canes tax plan. You know, that I think, you know, city ten ten ten nine nine nine nine nine nine you just raise canes. Sorry is my tag. Okay. No. That's that's fair. And he said it a million times. I saw the video that like spliced together with Hitler saying. So you know, I should pretty I should be able to remember nine nine nine. That's on me. But if we had that, right? Yes. So if you're arguing with with Herman Cain, he says that a just adjust fare tax rate is nine percent, right. So in other words that it's right and fair and reasonable that out of your pretax. What's listed as your pretax income that nine percent of it goes to fund whatever Herman Cain wants it to fund and ninety one percent goes into your net income. So if you disagreed you say, oh, that's you know, that's wrong. Right. I object to that. That's because you believe that have a right to one hundred percent of your of your pretax income, or or at least, you know. I mean, you would say hundred percent, but anybody who thinks it's wrong right would say at least more than ninety one. Percents. So the disagreement between you and Herman Cain is about whether the the object of whoever that nine percent is being given to has right to morally or whether you have a right to it morally. Yes, that's the that's the issue. And so I think would you say it's it's wrong because it's theft. Right. You're saying, well, it's wrong. You're doing something you shouldn't be doing. Because the you'd have you know, a right to it. So I think that you're I think that you're just sort of smuggling the the conclusion that it's wrong into the premise that Steph. Okay. Let me let me put it like this in analogy. If you will let's say, we're in like an apartment, building New York City, and where I'm at conversation, and you have a a neighbor who's bugging or something making too, much noise. And you say to me, I'm gonna go take care of the problem this, and you leave and you go and you kill that guy..

"It but i gotta say man it it it just on some level i feel like if you step back you're like that is the one thing we have that is really fucking popular that the republicans could maybe find a way to do is have what trump was claiming we'd have which were not gonna but have the largest tax cuts in american history you know like really fuck and do it and cut everyone's rate drastically and you know of course that for obvious reasons people aren't incentivized to do this and it's not going to happen but i do think it's an interesting thought experiment to think about what it would mean riot like if you let's just say you cut everyone's rate by fifteen percent how fucking popular with that make you as a politician i gotta think pretty in popular that's just my thoughts on that and um you know again we'll see what this bill actually looks like if it passes the senate and then whatever the next step after that the reconciliation or whatever the fuck they go to next we'll see what actually comes out and of course it will end up being some you know thousand page bill that none of the congressman read with a lot of fine print that you need a team of armies and accountants in order to take advantage of and guess who has a team of armies of accountants a fucking you know fucking rich people and that is how they game the system and again i'm i'm fine with anyone gaming the system odd game the system to pay as little as possible it's probably the only thing that keeps our economy going is that a lot of these companies can game the system to not have to pay the highest corporate tax rates in the world but it really would do something very positive for our our economy if we could actually have real tax cuts or theft cuts as you might call them all right that's the end of my rent that's the episode for today i love your good people do.

"Like the political landscape has changed so much in in like just the last fucking decade like since i've been in this game it's changed so fucking much and i really couldn't even imagine before but i'll tell you i remember like when when the ron paul moment was was fresh and new and like judge napolitano had freedom watching and there were like all these and like it was like ireland when people would say that it would like shake people there hit taxation is theft and you go like oh shit but that's a whole new way you got to look at everything now you got to if you if you accept that principle than you got a look at the state as a whole in a whole different thing and somewhere along the lines like when the ron paul movement faded and different things kinda took off in it it's like now it's almost like it's like a fucking medium you know what i mean and it's also something people role their that at its count as i go as the libertarian talking point and believe me i've heard it from a lot of people who just speaking talking points i hate when people just speaking talking points with no substance behind it and a lot of people who do that on the libertarian side hang onto the taxation is theft you know but i'm not going to stop saying it because taxation is theft it is your fucking robbing people you're robbing them the same way you're robbing someone of their fucking possession of you snatch it out of their hands if you own your own body and you own and you create something with your mind in your body and then someone comes in threatens to put you in a fucking cage if you don't give it to them they fucking robbed you so morally speaking that's how you have to think about taxes just because it's the fuck incorrect way to think about them i so that being said politically speaking.

"There you go holocaust slavery per grams of fucking great leap forward under mala people stalin killed in the gulags like all this shit it's all protected by law and the reason why those are the greatest the morality is it's not because the work evil people outside of the state but you can never get away with as much of that shit unless you're backed up by a fucking state so okay now again i'm not saying that this destroys the mirror kissed position right away because it's it's reasonable to argue as thomas pain the did that government is a necessary evil okay and that we need just the dealt a dab of this evil ju just for practical purposes okay i'm not i don't agree with that but that is a legitimate argument but you have to acknowledge that it's evil even if you think it's necessary and then once you acknowledge that would uber knowledge is a necessary evil you realize there's a big owners on you to make sure that evil as fucking contained okay why you make sure that evil doesn't get out of control and then you treat it with a whole different attitude than like your modern democrats or republicans do where it's like oh we have one more problem none of government from solve because it's fucking evil that's why okay so you have to contain evil and when you're talking about taxation that's the thing that you keep in mind is that it's fucking theft and therefore any reduction in it is positive and any increase in it is negative all right now it gets a little bit more complicated when you look into the details of these bills because they start removing you know certain loopholes and it is possible that some people on average will pay more and if that's the case that i'm against it but i just want to lay out first of all from a fucking moral position i'm still as much libertarian as i've ever been in my life is taxation as fucking theft and i know it it's like i feel like.

"Because of course i want to see taxes cut rob wants to tax cut taxation is theft you wanna see less theft just like we wanna see less murderer unless rape and all that stuff i don't wanna just see less theft i wanna see more investment i understand one hundred percent it's crazy to me and i was in charge of taxes like one just quick fix in like you still had some taxes won the quick fixes would be corporations do not get tax until the money gets paid out to an employee like if you're corporation it's crazy that if you go on some risky business venture for works out half the profits are gonna go to the government of course you're going to see less investment yet if something successful half of what you get from it goes away but any you don't have as much money to put it to the next thing and at the same time of you tax labor you're going to see less labour i mean it's been look anything you tax you're gonna see less of it it's it's pretty much an economic law call me crazy on poor and i want rich people to have more money now if you're making sense to me baby what so okay so we wanna see lower taxes of course and i will say this just going into it there is lower taxes are wave more politically feasible then cutting spending or ending the war on drugs or you know at the reason why cutting taxes are sometimes more feasible are only because they are very politically popular okay that's doha's mean that you're gonna see massive tax cuts because of course there are also are like it right that does bring in money that goes to pay for things however it in a lot of ways it's more politically i think one of the reasons why the fed and why the debt are so popular tore why they're so so prevalent is because it's a lot more.
