I'm standing right in front of one heinous off. The roof is sagging a windows. I don't know if they've ever been cleaned. There's nobody around outside here. So i guess i'm just gonna head up to this closest one here and given a knock and see somebody's around you can learn a little bit about this dimension. Hopefully this whole dimension isn't like this.

Okay therefore you are okay. And i called the rate first off not a murderer. I have never set foot in this trailer nor this entire trailer park before today before moments ago all those as our exactly whatever say. I'm sure it is okay. This is also. You appear to be strobe are you. Some kind of artificial. Intelligence officials don't l. k Are you actually gesture jober.

But i do have most of his time doubt for mary's face plus knowledge thing. That's great. what should i call you. You can call me jack. Strove find jack strobe. I'm just gonna head out I don't think there's anything i can do here. Her the knock on the door opened up now if you ever year murderer i don't think this guy here even got murdered. Well then first of all. I'm going to need some facts first of all you name effects your name. What's your name name is max. Max max was that show for max. Essential for anything. Your names just. Max max can be bothered with more syllables. That's fine you over that one. The call yes. Jack strove the whole graham gastro as natural checks out. That's right. he's not. Actually jackson object strobe. Is this guy here. the right. So here's the thing. I was going to ask you if you had any sort of connection to the deceased but it would appear that you already. At least his name. How do you know the deceased name. Sir what'd you say. Your name was max. What's that short for. Max wait now. we did. This dance already. Haven't we the charles the hotel coup. You see what i'm saying. Pal is it. Max how do you know this. Man right yeah. How do i know this guy. When i did say earlier that i've never set foot on this trailer park nor in this very strong for yourself. That's what i told. Jester polygram here. So obviously i met jetro outside of the trailer park somewhere else. We used to work together was we were. Coworkers workers bud me first of all. Where am i. Man is second of all my name actually. This is probably seventh of all. Because i've done a few things. But since i came in here but regardless of what number it is the name is dirk dirk pflueger. Oh excellent detective pflueger perfect yet. Detective works too friendly thing. But you know what i can be bad cop. It's alright this is great a respected member of the local community. I'm so glad you're here because obviously what's happened here is this hologram has confused me for somebody else. I've never been in here before. I was coming here to meet the locals and to check out the local scene and i knocked on the door and it was open and this guy was just here unfortunately deceased so blessed with all of the deceased memories up to about a month ago it's loosely. Drew that max of jack. That's lease a lot onset. They were in a sales. I should say we were stable organization together and jack myself basically stole a bunch of clients from match max mad thing not a theft investigator or fraud investigator. Really a good thing. I'm not any of those. I only specified justin murder. So even if you confess to like any number of crimes today doesn't matter anyway. You're dead continue. So in addition to seal the number of max clients the best terms. Well nothing illegal about that. Last part i did not murder him though. Listen archie gonna like look for evidence or something. I think you'll find that. There's no evidence here that i committed any crime. Well first of all sunny.

Third base. i'll call you jeremy. You okay with that max Short sounds great. Go ahead jeff. Okay sure fact number one. I am from the city of seattle.

Now i'm not gonna guess which one of those is alive. Make sure that's clear. I'm just entering all of these into evidence. Now if any of this ends up being used in court and proving a detriment to the prosecution case you'll be fine and prison basically ally investigate that age. Old tactic called entrapment background. Check him and find the wasn't special wrestler. Say wow boylans like honestly can be any number of those. He's real good at this game. But here's what i wanna know maxi boy. That's right. jeremy. Mr travis boy. Here's the thing. What is that hold on the refrigerator. Handle this yeah. I see it as a smudge. A duck smudge looks like some kind of greece on the inside of the refrigerator handle jack but you know anything about this snow. I literally just walked in. Jack jack jack. The one that goes and i can see i around paper. Well that's is that it's not gonna happen any then let me just skirt that different part of the handle it all right Listen to him just showed up here. Maybe we should like. I dunno go to the neighbors and see if any of them saw anything well i was going to make a bit of a more thorough investigation. The contents of this fridge but a pretty much everything. I need to know by now. This cottage cheese shouldn't be this keller. I'm interested in knowing the neighbors of scene because they saw you coming. Maybe they saw going. You know what. I'm saying you probably. That's all right well. I'm just going to walk out the front door here. It's important to get a good smell surroundings. Hey wait a minute. That dollar game. Follow us out of the trailer. Whatever did you like activate upon his death. You knew how long he's been dead for would add as two and a half days. Couldn't have been meek. Because i just showed up. Well can you prove your absence grooving negative. That's another classic law enforcement technique. Ask him to prove a negative. They never can just like you can't right now. Say what's up nope. That's a raccoon. That's just the shoe. i think that's i'm sure that if you speak to the neighbors and the other surrounding trailers none of them will have seen me lough our next door. Who don't mind me interrupting you sir. But obviously you're man coming in and out of your neighbors house recently in the last couple of days does he have. Is this your watch.

He's a fraudster. What's reported to the landscaping crimes. Yeah that's right. This guy only does murder so there. We should be back with you in about a month now to the business at hand. This particular grizzly marta. The man inside that trailer right there. He's dead. I know crazy right now. She's still watching us through the window. I mean it's a big window. I you don't usually see bay-windows like that on mobile homes you do you. Hey you seem like you're living your best life. I don't think he's living any life. I'm telling you he's a hologram.

I've smelled death more times than you could ever dream okay. It's dark and it's changed me as a person. Listen we got to get ourselves back into that trailer right now and investigate the premises just a little bit more. Okay fine now really wreaks it yet. You heard mashed always gets his man and you sir. Are that man. Unless as i suspect you yourselves are in fact another hologram chest. Why why have. I just like that. Oh well that's the easy part of police works on terminating. Whether or not a person standing right in front of you is or is not a hologram. Listen i didn't murder. This guy doesn't look like he's been murdered. I don't see any evidence of actual trump shoot. I should look at the body lipstick on his collar. On my caller. What kind of color lipstick do you wear. I wear lipstick This trailer is packed to the gills with holographic projectors apparently surely there's also like some kind of cameras recording system like surveillance footage. You could just access and see what exactly what happened at good league jack here myself. Change the password since the last check was the face for this. This this this this right here. He can see that says my secret crush thoughts. I thought at every crush. I've ever had as jack in there. Were a lot of and none of them were the right answer. Well let me This is when the deductive powers that i developed over many years of training. Come into play. Hang on let me try something go that was it. Oh what do i. It was orange crush. That's not even secret. That's like the most popular flavor gone with grape strawberry. Those are secret. No one knows about those terrible hen. Man i mean i know it. Wasn't you technically orange crush. Well all right now time. For the moment of truth we're going to hit that play button and watch. That was the wrong button. That does that well the fact that you were the one who pointed me to this file tells me some you you're on the right value. Hit the wrong button. All right five like little. Try mother mom. That's a lady. I mean that's your mom or lady than you'll ever be what is happening now. Did you get the wrong file again. Somehow i guess that's our trailer jetro. I really need to call more often. Looks real excited to see jack. Oh wow oh they're just going right into it right into it. Oh berkeley i thought standards were a bit high o. k. o. But everyone seems to stop moving. She fall asleep well on top of him kissing and then moving to see my flesh twitching. I can barely see that. Most of your body is covered by mrs lugar. There ever got a romantic as. I'm starting to think not hit fast forward. Just hours of detective. Luger's mom laying on top of jack strove. She is a heavy sleeper. She moves she so slow down. Look or well. I mean how do those count is usually an presumably. They don't usually end with him. Being smothered to death. We stopped short death now. I'll be honest. I probably should have recognized that purview. When i first walked in here i've never known another woman to wear. How would you. How did you make a perfume smell in this place. I've got the nose of links or a similar creature. Obviously i did not murder this man. I reluctantly agree that this is probably go well. You would be. If i hadn't cut you in a blatant bald faced lie directly to law enforcement's that's right earlier on you told me. This whole conversation was being recorded. And i know that's a felony and you don't seem like you got the guts to actually do that sir. Unfortunately i'm going to have to take you in downtown ri- right okay. When are we just step outside. Probably yeah that's where my car is. Okay i'm good. I trust you on that. No need to restrain you. Well i guess we'll see. I'll see you later. Probably not hologram.

Is that a podcast. Podcast boy is he. I think he may be my mother to raise standards. Okay exit this seeings. That's probably a good idea to push the button on my remote here puerto goes to another dimension. Which is where i'm from. I guess i could have mentioned earlier. Would have been a pretty solid alibi anyway. I'm gonna head back to my own dimension a bit of a mess. Sorry about that. Yes i am. You've got a lot on your shoe. What was screaming allah right. You can hear that's right. Yeah you the audio portal connection there. So no how right is a porta was opening up. You told me that my excavator was here right. Uh-huh and what did you call it about.

How Software Is Eating the Car
"I saw an article on the i tripoli spectrum which is their magazine by robert charette how software is eating the car the trend toward self driving an electric vehicles ed hundreds of millions of lines of code two cars can the auto industry cope. Just put it in perspective. Hundreds of millions of lines of code. That's how many lines of code there are in windows. it's that it's on. that level of sophistication. I'm sure i've been talking about this all along. But it's kind of stunning and it's relevant right now because it according to analysts. The chip shortage global chip shortage is being felt everywhere but it's especially being felt in kars four point one million autos won't be made this year because they can't get the chips that's a lot. Ten years ago only only fancy cars had microprocessor control units. Today fancy fancy. Cars like the bmw. Seven series may contain one hundred fifty electronic control units pickup trucks like the ford f. One fifty one hundred fifty million lines of code as of twenty seventeen. Some forty percent of the cost of a new car can be attributed to semi conductors. The cost is doubled in ten years and they think by By the end of this decade. It'll be fifty percent. Each new car today has about six hundred dollars semi conductors. Three thousand chips in it. So it's no surprise. I mean your steering is controlled by a chip. The the doors windows the mirrors the seats the climate control of course the anti-theft system the kilos entry system even the steering column as a computer on.

What Can Martial Arts Teach Us About Movement Quality With Sam Wuest
"What are some things that the martial arts teach us we tend to sack fasha facile training. I think that's an easy objective thing but moving quality. How well do you move and connecting that. The martial arts yes. I think there's a bunch of layers that we can. You know a bunch of different topics that we go into. But since you brought up fashionable training. I think one thing that people have people use paschel training and it's kind of like this broad term as opposed to you know specifics of like how are we actually training the fashion yes. I don't think that people really understand. It's kind of like fashion. Trainings is bucket of like our really know what we're doing here so but it works and it seems to have this quality that were we're saying some something must be going on is probably the show we don't understand the Understand why this works etc etc you know especially the internal martial arts so like piji You see pronounce it with the j. Instead of the is he h because the h was the old pronunciation. I always plug into that Is great polarity taiji. Bagua all these different movements movement styles if you will Martial art styles movement styles especially the ones that either internal. You'll see the bill. Use the body in a different way. Because they're not trying to use the same way. Like an external marcella which even blockbuster. Boxing can be an extra in wash. Light the way that they would be using that because you're using different sections of your body in a particular way and you might be mobilizing different things that i think. In strength and conditioning we don't often assume can or should move if that makes sense and that's a whole rabbit hole to go down but to just gonna give you an overview such as the intercostal 's expanding and contracting and that's one of the reasons why some of these arts really rely on the breath is because it's not as you know i'm not saying throw out via the contracting and like taking a belly breath in and then squeezing and keeping support because you need that if you're olympic theft need that for a lot of things but when we talk about gate when we talk about something a little bit more dynamics throwing is another example there little movements in the ribcage that if those are off the schedule is not gonna move right if those are off them you know then the shoulder you know. The merle joint is not going to feel right at the elbow or something else. Or you're not gonna be able to recruit the right muscles like from doing these things and then even just like a small amount of extra strength over the past few weeks and just like shock. My psoriasis looks like an extra set of ribs like because they're all moving

Being Victimized by Scams is Solvable [Test]
"Episodes are out every friday. This is solvable. I'm jacob weisberg there. Only a few real cons that exist and the bones of the story are the same and they've been the same for centuries also maria conaco. Vince would writing about these number of years book. The confidence game explores stories of con-artists opportunists people who build up our trust and then take everything we have think bernie madoff the late investors who destroyed countless lives with false promises and financial theft but before we pledged to fight to abolish scams. Remember this another side to those familiar. Stories to the flip side of our vulnerability to cons is human connection and trust and all the good stuff. So how do we protect our loved ones in ourselves. We'll scams being enduring part of society forever because we refuse or are unable to learn from our mistakes rather than admitting i was dumb. I felt for a scam you say. Oh no no cure all of the mitigating circumstances and it probably wasn't even a scam. So i think that it takes a strong person. It's embarrassing So can scams be solved. Rea- konakov thanks so being victimized by a scam is actually a solvable problem. Maria has gone from investigating the lies. We tell ourselves to mastering the bluff herself by learning to play poker at a world class level and writing about that too so i started by asking her why she so hooked on these concepts of big and small manipulations. My first book was about sherlock holmes. So i've traveled this gamut from you know. How do you be detective to okay. What are the what are the bad guys doing to kind of being the bad guy myself but within a game right so so so there are rules And one of the reasons that i've that it's been such a passion of mine is that i hate to see in re in reality. Not in a game. I hate to see people being taken advantage of. And how often that happens. And how scammers often will target the most vulnerable parts of our population the most vulnerable people and then we as a society target again by blaming them and by saying oh well. You're just stupid. You were just greedy. You were just dumb. You shouldn't have fallen for it. I wouldn't have fallen for it and that just gets me. Yeah well i was going to ask you because of your longstanding interest. I mean this personal for you in any way of you've been scammed yourself or people close to you been victims of scams. I personally have not been scammed. That i know of but one point i always make is that you know.

I've needed help in the past. And i think we bought we probably been on the other side of that and so the trade off is yom maybe get scammed. But i'd rather take the risk of being the victim of scammer in that particular instance and. I'm sure i've been scammed that way. Well that's interesting. I mean i have experienced instill sticks with me from high school. I remember in chicago where i was growing up walking through lincoln park and there was a guy kinda ragged looking walking with a gas can and he stopped me and told me this whole sad story about how he was trying to get back to florida to see a family card run out of gas and he needed the money for gas. Now was probably fifteen years old or something like that. I think i gave him ten dollars. Which would have been a lot of money to me. At the time and i felt good about myself for doing that and then a week later i was walking through the park and there was the same guy looking around with this gas can And it just it sticks with

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..

"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.

"Nature of what morality is is something that's kind of larger than what's the whim of some person or people decided as riot so i think that's that's a pretty clear line there right so there's not you can't like be like oh like this is horribly immoral but now i put on a blue suit with a shiny badge so it's not a moral issue anymore so the basic libertarian position is that is that we are all human beings and were all playing in the same rules of morality so something that i would do or rob bernstein would do or a politician would do are not different in terms of morality they're not different all right so that being said if i were to say i have a cage in my basement and i'm going to throw you when that cage i put a gun to your head and say ominous i'm going to take you ominous send men with guns to grab you if we don't you don't give me your money and i'm gonna throw you when that cage what would that be described as other than theft right i mean is and what what other possible answer could there be than that is theft if the government opened the department of rape and said we're going to go rand raping people you you you window like well that's the price we pay for civilized sex no it's fucking rape because the women are consenting in men are forcing them these are morals there's still a fucking same you can't legislate any of that should away and if you go down that road where you can legislate the should away you've given up on morality because all of the most horrifically immoral things in human history were all protected by laws all of them.

"Going to do that we're going to be stuck in this nonsense where it's you know we're dealing with these little cutting around the edges and that being said any tax cut is good anybody who gets lower rates good for you um however i i didn't wanna say that's okay you know look i know i get accused of this at times and i know a lot of libertarians get accused of this of like being to married to a philosophy you know and too much like oh you're living you're living in this kind of like ideological world and you know louis to say this okay some basic libertarian shit that i know a lot of the people listening already know but you know it's never bad to brush up on some basic and for some of our new our listeners and people who have it was an all the old archives maybe you haven't heard me make this a kind of make this point or just this basic libertarian shit italy's my brand of libertarianism so taxation is theft i know that gets like old the here even i kinda feel like i like i almost role my eyes at this stuff but it is it is and that's how you have to folk and look at the shit it is theft now let like i was saying before someone's i'll get accused of being like too much of an ideologue or or something like that and jordan peterson right when we were playing that clip someone who a tremendous amount of admiration for but when we were playing that clip from jordan peterson he basically said like oh this is the problem with with libertarianism and he compared it to a lake radical marxism is that oh it just it oversimplifies things too much and in the same way as marx would just you know marx would look at religion and said its oppressive that's it it's oppressive adjourned peterson sitting there like really you're just gonna throw out all of the knowledge all of the history all of the comments on the nature of humanity just because it's oppressive like okay there are aspects that are oppressive but there's also these other aspects of it right.

"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.

"Well not they're not putting enough moved on it and they're just monitoring my credit reports reports that monitor so not helping to clean up something else not really no they're not they're not in new union to it yeah i want you to go to say and i want you to hold on i'm of kelly who killed was ander for sanders identity theft protection program uh because what it does is it assigns a caseworker to you if you had had that coverage and they would have handled all this crap for you okay handgun they cleaned up and that's the big problem with identity theft is not that you end up owing money it's that you're you spend the next two weeks or three months of your life strewn around with all the stuff shirt and that's the problem it just it sucks the life out of your messing with it so they are obviously that's like trying to buy if you go to santer to do that you've already had an events are trying to buy insurance after the house burned it's a little late but because we do so much business through them occasionally they'll let us do one retro to help you out and so and they're one of the few that covers stuff like this employment one see this employment this unemployment fraud it's not the traditional uh identity theft traditional added indicators from some eyeballs money in your name and that's where a lot of the services cover but zander is one of the few that covers everything when it comes to identity theft and they sound this caseworker to take care of everything for you and a walk you through it so hold on i'll have kelly up and see if we can get them to do this when retro as a favor to us can't guarantee it but i think we can and on and again that's why we endorse that zander insurance identity theft protection programme it's it's just one of the rare ones in the business that takes good care of you all the way through it's not just monitoring just monitoring is not enough just freezing it's not enough terry is with us in san diego high terry how're are you great howery i knew better than i deserve what's up.
