Why Cancel Culture Is Solvable

"It some level canceled cultural is these are arguments about language, what you are and aren't allowed to say how things are are pronounced. How did you first fall in love with the quirks in hiccups of language what drew you to this this field? I'm a linguist not for the reasons that I think many people might expect. It's not that I was especially well traveled as a child. Both of my parents spoke only English if I hear somebody speaking something other than English. I had this visceral desire to WanNa do it too like I'd like to understand what they're saying, but also I wanna be able. To, do that the first time I heard anybody speaking something other than English was brew actually I found myself thinking I am so jealous of that girl that she can talk in that way that I can't understand for me originally, it was just that they're the seven thousand different codes and I don't WanNa know only one. So I also speak several languages. Tell me what you think about English what does it do well, and what does it do poorly do we debate a certain way in? English, we do actually but I'd love to know what you think. We're oddly unfussy language about all sorts of things that other languages make you mark and pay attention to because we're language of the long written history. We have a kind of artificially preserved enormous vocabulary and that's true of any language with a long written history. English is one of them and it means that you have unnecessarily large collections of synonyms that allow you to express yourself in various. Ways, I find. English to be in. It's funny people who are into the speeches of Winston Churchill et CETERA. Think I'm crazy but I find English crude. It's fascinating we streamlined but it's other languages where I find myself just drowning in subtleties in the things that they have to say that we have to leave the context. Yeah I. Actually wonder if that isn't run reasons why English is universal language because in fact, it's pretty easy to speak bad. English doesn't doesn't require a lot of grammatical knowledge. It's that simple speak it badly quite easily, which is not true of actually most one. Yes, exactly. As a linguistic professor do how do you navigate sensitive language debates is there are different way to do it. There are certain things that you're taught. You are not supposed to say in our society. I'm just somebody who won I like to keep things tidy. I like to make a case I think really I should have been a lawyer I. Don't know if I would have been good one but that's kind of mind that I think I have and also I wanna find stuff out and I watch other people being told that they're not allowed to. Happen to me two or three times in my own academic career I. Don't think it's right and I have a hard time keeping quiet when I don't think something's right. One person said about me once the when John Gets Mad, he writes a book and that's more or less true I. I. Just can't help I want things to be better than they are on cranky. What do you think of the term canceled culture? What do you think it now means well, we're already getting beyond it in a way or at least I i. hope we can because originally the idea was that if originally by that I mean say two years ago. The idea was that if we find out something unsavory and often genuinely unsavory about some celebrity that we're supposed to flush them from our consciousness as much as possible and so that has become more extreme lately is accepted by a larger number. Of people and I think it's I could say dangerous but it's also just really unfair it's immoral and yet I, think most of us are inclined to pretend to go along with it because we're really frightened of a certain weapon that that crowd have which is that they can call you a racist or sexist. That's something that we need to renegotiate and where is the desire to cancel people coming from and you said that crowd those people who who are they in where what's their motive do you think? This is what it is. Critical race theory, what it is is people who have. Drunken an idea that battling power differential that disadvantage people is the central goal of. Being any kind of moral actor in society and that it must center what we consider intellectual increase to be. It must center what we consider art be. It must send her what we consider humor to be that that one thing must be what it's all about. The even civility goes out the window, which is not crazy. Many people say what these people have to be so mean, but you wouldn't ask. That if it was about pedophilia, nobody thinks that we should be very gentle in ejecting a pedophile from general

Roll Over Beethoven

"Hello I'm. Naomi. lewin welcome to classics for kids. For some reason, maybe because he was such a genius, Beethoven seemed to be the butt of jokes than any other composer. Not all the jokes have to do with music but some. Your parents and grandparents probably know the song roll over Beethoven. Chuck, Berry originally made it popular back in the nineteen fifties this version by electric light orchestra even quotes Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. That's not the only popular song to use Beethoven's fifth. A disco hit from the seventies is even named for a fifth of Beethoven. It's no joke than in World War Two. Beethoven's fifth took on a whole new meaning back. Then important messages were still sent by Telegraph using Morse Code and dictate the DOT is Morse code for the letter. V. After British Prime Minister Winston Churchill declared a campaign called V for victory. Of The BBC British public radio started playing the first four notes of Beethoven's fifth before all news bulletins. A. Beethoven. Never married but after he died someone found a very passionate letter, he had addressed to my immortal beloved. No one knows who the immortal beloved might have been but turns up in. Beethoven joke that takes the fifth. The joke goes that the immortal beloved was threatening to leave Beethoven because he didn't pay enough attention to her Beethoven said, that's ridiculous. You are everything to me. You're my life you're my inspiration and she looked at him and said me. Everything your life your inspiration ha ha. and. Then there's the joke about a man who's wandering through a cemetery in Europe and stumbles on Beethoven's grave. He's very surprised to see Beethoven sitting up in his coffin furiously erasing his music. So he asks excuse me Mr Beethoven what on Earth Are you doing and Beethoven snaps back can't you see? I'm decomposing. Bits of Beethoven also turn up in amusing ways in movies, and that's not even counting the movie about the dog named Beethoven and the sequels Beethoven's second and Beethoven's third. The Beatles one of the most famous rock bands ever made a movie called help that uses Beethoven's music. When the Drummer Ringo gets trapped by a snarling tiger from a German zoo, his friends tell him. Off To do is famous Van Hoven famous. Got Up on talk. and Beethoven puts him appearances in musical theater to.

Winston Churchill statue sealed in steel ahead of protests

"Let's go to London now Frank where we've seen statues of some prominent figures from British history at the heart of the protest there yeah this is actually familiar I think to many Americans a slave trader who made me a lot of money in that business his statue was torn down in Bristol last weekend and then that's a city on the coast and then Churchill statue in parliament square was defaced where someone spray painted he was a racist what happened yesterday is a bunch of for white nationalists football hooligans and even some people who just generally offended by this these attacks on historical figures they surged into parliament square right you know in front of big band police have boxed up Churchill to sort of protect him and by the time with the mayor said and and even black lives matter's organizations you're said don't go to London for this this is going to end up with a lot of battles between white and black people but some anti racism protesters came anyway and so you had this protest and counter protest how did it play out yeah it was fascinating to watch the police penned in the far right of folks around the statues and they started throwing bottles and started punching police some of them clearly came here for a fight there were clashes between a white far right demonstrators and black anti racism protesters in Trafalgar Square I also ran across some black men who had face coverings and they were doing some hit run attacks on white protesters about the timing of the Waterloo station the train station there was some violence there and police actually had to seal it off in the end at least six people went to the hospital they were over a hundred arrests and see the other thing is this is all a bit surreal because we still supposed to be doing social distancing so you would have people wearing face masks punching each other so the whole thing was was restored yeah quite a scene up Frank did everyone come to London yesterday just looking for a fight no I mean a lot of people were peaceful and that one of the striking images was a black anti racist protester actually carrying one of the white protesters who'd been beaten and it was a sizeable center when I was talking to people who said you know if we're going to remove statues there needs to be a democratic discussion about this they can't just be torn down and a medical at Westminster bridge is names Andy Boyle he works in construction and he had come to monitor the protest he's white and this is what he said little available site dot this Congress and it's over by the strong rate on I will admit it still as racism today albeit it's getting better but it still isn't there yet I believe it should get there owner or French officials taking any action in response to what's going on the streets there yes they are well yesterday it ended rather chaotically because the police wouldn't let the protesters marched through the city that kept them pinned into the plaster at the break so we did see scenes of you know tear gas being fired but otherwise it was peaceful the government appears to be listening this week the interior minister Christophe Castaner he banned chokehold but the police have also come out they're angry they're say they're being stigmatized by a few bad apples and they have accused the interior minister of betraying them

"You know just fire and sure enough? They did and this had an amazingly hardening effect on the populace. It just thrilled them in cheered in one thousand nine hundred forty. The idea of a bombing campaign to terrorize and demoralized citizens was relatively new thing. I mean they'd been one case of a during the Spanish civil war. But this was something kind of new and lower and Hermann Goering head of the German Air Force. The lift Wafa continued to be astounded that the British public was taking this in and Churchill wasn't giving in and then they expanded the attacks beyond London to some other industrial cities like Coventry and Bristol. Tell us about what that was like. For the for those towns. Yeah the raid against Coventry in November of nineteen forty was particularly significant rate because the Mass at immense force of aircraft with the idea of obliterate the city of Coventry at an actually succeeded in that act so much so that afterwards both on the German side and the British side coverage was kind of the gold standard. If you will the bridge referred to Coventry dictation. A measure of the effectiveness of a raid was was at one coventry to Coventry's three Coventry's So that is a real jarring and amazingly amazingly from the German point of view during one of the most interesting because what happened in in in Bristol England this is nineteen forty one. Churchill was on his way to Bristol to award honorary degrees At as Donald chance to Bristol University and his whole entourage with various officials in his special train and were on their way to on the way to Bristol Pause on a siding outside the city happily because that night a tremendous rate struck the city of Bristol and as they arrived in town the next morning the city the city is a flame at that point but Churchill goals goes on and goes ahead with his plans to to award these. These degrees arrives Bristol. University buildings literally next door to the to the space in which they're holding. The degree ceremony building. Next door are on fire. People who people arrive in the audience who have clearly been up all night fighting fires digging bodies out of out of destroyed buildings so forth there in the audience up on the dice within our men who have their clothing is wet and Saudi and so forth. But they're still wearing their. They're still wearing their robes. And this this degree ceremonies still goes on afterwards. Churchill gives this wonderful extemporaneous speech just just about the courage of Ryssdal residents and it's it was really a very amazing very moving moment especially from merit. Who just just got love for Maria's his daughter Mary who just filled her her love for her father just become so much more amplified even in in that bumped. It is interesting because you know. Churchill was inspirational speaker on before parliament and on the Radio. But you also say that these visits to bombed out neighborhoods in London and cities throughout the British isles were also had an inspirational effect. Which is you know. It can be tricky for an elected leader to go to an era where people have lost their livelihoods and their loved ones and our utterly shattered in shellshocked and they seize this politician coming in with a Nice Car. In an entourage. It can rub people the wrong way. How did he manage to make it inspirational? This is something After that first raid on September seventh nineteen forty the next day. Churchill went to the very heavily vom. Dach district these men with an entourage and one member of General Hastings phys May Dictum hug because he looked like a pug is made recounts how when they arrived in the east and he is made was very concerned that there would be a a negative reaction to Churchill arriving. After after this this this horrible event that there might be a lot of recrimination. Like why what? Why were you not able to save us from from this for one reason or another That was not the case as they quickly found the public was if people there who had on their homes and so forth loved it that Churchill had arrived loved at that he was there now whether that had a lot to do with Churchill himself on. You know it's hard to say. It was a moment when when maybe it could have gone either way. But the fact is they embrace churchill and embrace them And one thing that endeared him to the public was the fact that he was not afraid to cry. He was deeply moved by this by this event. So and again. That's the this idea recognizing the power of symbolic acts. There's one moment you describe. It might have been touring Bristol where such a large crowd gathered that not. Everyone could see him. He hoists his bowler hat on his cane and lifts it high so that people can see that. He's yeah lifted high and swirls it around in the air so that people can see that that the leaders I should say also by the way that you know this he was not. It wasn't sort of a desire. Just near rebel in in the of his audience was not at all he was. He was deeply deeply moved by everything they saw was the case that at Bristol as he was after he had lived the speech and after he had made his way back to the train but this huge crowd of people for the city who had clustered around were following his car. Back to the train at it could have been as Mary Points Mary. Churchill daughter who diarrhea she points out it could have been a festival day in Bristol. They arrive at the train. Churchill words these waving to the crowd with the crowd way. He's waiting until the train is out of sight of obviously out of sight of anybody back in Bristol. And then he picks up. A newspaper halted in front of this. Hadn't behind the newspaper begins to cry. He's he's that moved by the situation. I believe it's a definite that he says he says something to the effect is a great responsibility Erik. Larsen's book is the splendid and the vile. We'll talk more after a short break. This is fresh air. Let's all close our eyes. Take a deep breath. Let it out and listen to. Npr's all songs considered it's a music podcast but it's also a good friend and guide to find joy in troubled times here. All songs considered with new episodes every Tuesday and Friday. Wherever you listen to podcasts. This is fresh air. And we're speaking with author. Eric Larsen. He has a new book about the leadership and family life of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill during his first year in office when Nazi Germany waged a bombing campaign that killed more than forty four thousand British civilians. The book is the splendid and the vile. I want to just turn to the subject of crisis leadership here since we're in a crisis right now and of course every national crisis is different and a viral pandemic is different from twentieth century warfare. Which is what you write about but as you reflect on the insights that this research may have given you. I'm wondering what has occurred to you. Observing President Trump's conduct in handling the challenges of the corona virus. Oh my well I I. I come back to these. The idea of how how to approach situation a situation like this or at least how. Churchill would've would've approached it. You know the the key thing is to embolden reassure and encourage. I feel Trump Odyssey has done none of this no particular no particular moment of actual erode of leadership have icing but Churchill again would have he would have been first of all very frank about what we're confronting it would have been very frank about what this pandemic really means and about the importance. Yes staying home. Churchill would have been very very sober in his appraisal of what was happening and again any would have come around with reasons for optimism. Things that that were actually happening. That could could maybe improve the situation. He meant he undoubtedly talked about how the vast medical research infrastructure of this country bending itself to solving this problem but he would have done something to really encourage the populace and make them feel like he was in control and things were eventually going to get better. You know I'm also struck. By how much time and effort Churchill spent studying policy really getting into the details of every aspect of not just the war but other national policy issues and how important it is for a for a leader to be empirically grounded consulting the experts that he knows and and obviously has to make his own calls but being immersed in in the actual issues. Well you know. I think the Churchill's would absolutely have a fine.

"Evacuated from the town of dunkirk. It was a dark time for the British forces. The United States was not in the war. They were prepared to take on Germany alone. At this point Churchill knew that he would have to defend against a German attack. Either from the air or possibly from the An. What role did he see for the Royal Air Force in the defense of the country and what was the state of the Air Force? Well what's very important to recognize to to to understand is that the fall of France was a a huge thing in terms of strategy. The idea the transplant fall had never been conceived have never been thought of as a possibility by pretty strict radishes now. Suddenly France had fallen. And and look the look. Wafa was able to set up basis on French coast minutes minutes from Britain previous strategy held at this. This was going to be impossible because the Germans have to fly away from Germany. Not Have the fuel capacity for their fighters that they didn't have the fuel capacity for their fighters couldn't send their bombers because they would be sitting ducks of the year. Churchill recognized very early on at that the fighters were going to be all important because because the only way Hitler could launch an invasion across the challenges would be could be done was if the lift. Wada I achieve air superiority so the top goal. Churchill was to deny air security to both the only way to do that. Let's do the production answered the to the effective coordination of fire so the German air war begins with a lot of tax during the daytime. In which the Royal Air Force the British Air Force fighters were pretty effective in knocking down a lot of the aircraft of the German Air Force. The left Wafa this also present. That kind of a show for British citizens actually watched a lot of this happen right in the sky. Oh this one of the fasting things to me. I mean there are. There are accounts of people who try to try to picture this. In one case there is a Switching is is A writer is is lying in the grass on a on a on a cliff at at Dover on a Beautiful Sunny Day the challenge sparkling below. Just could be any lovely summer day at high up above there is this pitched life or death battle between between German fighters British fighters and end the novelty of the seeing these seeing the spiralling contrails. High up in the sky watching occasionally as one of these things would just appear in a blur of smoke and playing with crashed into the sea was just such an anomalous. Think there you are extensive picnicking on a clifftop as she says no watching this battle at could determine the fate civilizations when the Germans went to night bombing. How did that change the equation? How did it affect the approaches of the German bombers the German fighters and and the British air defences first of all your switched to to tonight bombing because when they attacked by day with their bomber is The the Rif Spitfires hurricanes dairy affected knocking down bombers were quite slow relative to the speed of the of the of the fires in particular. The Germans were were startled to find. One of their aircraft. Is the so-called Stupa dive bomber with had been this fearsome weapon and land campaigns had pet proven to be uniquely vulnerable to attack by these Biden Song and very well trained in dynamic British British British pilots. So they'd had to give up daytime bombing and went to nighttime bombing. The affected this was that was first of all at night. They no longer need fighter protection because the the Rif is essentially effectively might want The Spitfires and hurricanes the pilots had had no way of effectively locating these bombers in darkness they had a rough idea because of course have established this this wonderful pression radar system but this was only only effective to apply because by the time the message has got to the control centers about where these planes were. The place obviously had moved onto different locations so that so digital sighting of aircraft was very important part of of how they are a gift dealt with bombers and and also with fighters at night with visual aspect was was removed so the bombers were now essentially free to fly over the British isles at will. This was very poor out another aspect. Was that because now. They were free to fly over over the because they no longer needed a fighter escorts fighters had very very short operational stamina essentially ninety minutes. Now the bombers could could could stay up for for far far longer so this very much changed the dynamic right and made the British industries in public more vulnerable. You note that Hitler for several months declined to bomb London because he was still hoping to convince. Churchill to see reason and negotiate a peace treaty Churchill was insisting he would take the fight to Germany he had his bombers bombed Berlin and that kind of change things. Didn't it one key element before the before? It became the the before Germany began. Its first deliberate bombing attacks on. London was was a mistake will flop of made on August Fourth Nineteen thirty when a group of German bombers thought they were over their target. They were not. They were over. Central London League dropped their bombs and this was the first attack on central London and yet was terrified to to citizens one which felt that for whatever reason they will not. This was not going. They're not going to be the subject of attack. Know by by this gave a Churchill what he described as the moral the moral right than to turn around and bomb Germany the Rif Bombed Berlin rather The was a little bit reluctant to do that as well because the moral consequences consult for so now. Suddenly you have this. This rapid escalation that leads to September seventh nineteen forty but I liberal mass intense bombing of the city of London. Talk about these raids on London in some detail. How big were they? How many planes would be involved? What kind of bombs were dropped? Hundreds of planes were involved You know when I was singing. Yeah yeah absolutely single rate mean up to a thousand planes bombers dispatched from bases along the along. The French coast not all necessarily arriving at the same time. But these were these were tremendous tremendous rates. And when I was doing the research for this book at by would stay up for part of the time in London and I remember standing before Mike Hotel Window. Just looking out at dusk one night trying to imagine what this would have been lied so beautiful. Blue night at dusk you suddenly you see these hundreds of bombers coming over the horizon. How terrified that must've but so so the first rule begins. September seven forty the The bombers arrive at At as I as I pointed out at teatime This was a day when otherwise London is one about their business In a in a very moral waves it was hot day for London. Just rare hot and sunny Not Temperatures up About Ninety degrees The stores and piccadilly were packed. People were just living their lives and suddenly suddenly the IT Simon so now this by itself. Blu Not was not was not a particularly terrifying thing because air rates varied sirens. Were sounding the time my time but on a regular basis but now the allows began to south says in the afternoons ten seventeen forty and you know the first thing nation was to say okay. These must be just another false alarm this time. However incendiary bombs began to fall these. These are typically the first things that the left the drop these meant to set fire to structures so that once the once the structures began to earn and as night fell. These structures would serve as we for bombers to fall. Because you navigation at night was still a problem for for the for the German bombers they could they could fly at night readily but the getting to a target at least initial phases blitz required. Either either Moonlights Which is very important thing. Flown was referred to as the bomber's moon or What else are helpless to have these these these structures on fire because they they guided the bombers to to the target so suddenly isn't standards that are flying next come to high explosive bombs and the Germans deployed a variety of of of of weapons from from smallish high explosive bombs to to To two giant about four thousand pound bombs the Germans nickname Satan These bombs began to fall in the city of London. September seventh nineteen forty and now for limiter some life as they would write one of the little details. Is that you know. We hear the whistling sound that bombs would make as they fall. That's not a normal thing for the moms that was added to make them more terrifying right. Yeah what Germans and then eventually also British What's referred to as the sort of Jericho Trumpet Let device attached to attached to bombs to make them howl as they fell which was believed to amplify the terror effect. Similar thing was done by the way to the stick of mammary some to make them scream as they as they enter their dives which is believed to enhance the terror of on the ground right. And you mentioned this when people saw moon coming that was even more terrifying right. Yes I mean. The full moon was That nights when there was a full moon these were these were deemed to be the nights when air rates were most likely to occur because because moonlight was very effective in lighting targets. Along On nights when there was a full moon so-called bombers moved That's when people most feared what would happen. And we're pretty much assured that there would be a Ray Eric. Larssen's new book is the splendid and the vile after a break we'll hear more about Winston Churchill's leadership of Great Britain during the German bombing campaign in nineteen forty and some of the ways he inspired citizens and sustained their morale before the United States entered the war. Also Lloyd Schwartz recommend some music for our days of stress from Louis.

"winston churchill" Discussed on Giants of History

"Mine and it was here that Churchill heard the words that would foreshadow all that was to come at the mouth of the coal mine was another man named Mr Do snap who was from Oldham. Which in an extremely wild coincidence happens to be the same exact town were Churchill had. I stood for election to parliament and lost which Mr do snap apparently remembered for as Mr do snap shook Churchill's hand at the mouth of the coal mine. He said to churchill quote. They'll all vote for you. Next time and quote prophetic words to say the least. But from there Mr Howard's plan for Churchill's escape was put into motion. Churchill was led into the cage of the coal mine and from there and Churchill's own words quote down we shot into the bowels of the earth and so the cage descended two hundred feet down into a pitch black labyrinth of mine. Shafts and two additional Scottish miners were at the bottom of the mine waiting for Churchill Churchill exited the cage and he followed the to minors and they wound their way through this maze guided only by the lanterns that they were carrying Churchill followed closely behind. Churchill's own words again quote. We walked for some time through the pitchy. Labyrinth with frequent turns twists and alterations of level and finally stopped in sort of chamber where the air was cool and fresh and quote the to minors then laid out a makeshift bed for Churchill and gave him candles first and then a box of cigars and a bottle of whisky how well they appear to know Churchill already they then left him there with the warning to not move from this space no matter what happens and then the two men disappeared back into the darkness and Churchill was then alone again. He wrote later of this moment. Quote in this comfortable mood and speeded by intense fatigue. I soon slept the sleep of the weary but of the triumphant and quote Churchill would spend three days down in the mine hiding from the bore search parties that were combing the area looking for him and these three days down in the mine. Were not altogether that pleasant as you might imagine. He was alone for pretty much all of that time. With the exception of a few visits from Howard and the other men who brought him down more food and provisions but the darkness of the mind started to wear on him and soon enough as we said earlier he would learn that while there were no other people down in the shaft with him there were in fact countless rats to keep him company. How he didn't go crazy during those three days. I'll never know but if I had to take a guess. It must've had something to do with that bottle of whisky that he was given finally after three days down in the mine. Mr Howard thought it was safe enough to bring Churchill back up to the surface and hide him in a small secret room that was behind some packing cases inside his own office and so church was once again instructed not to come out of the room unless he heard the secret knock that they both agreed. Upon for a few more days. Churchill sat locked away in this small room reading a copy. A Robert Louis. Stevenson's book kidnapped and it's worth mentioning here that one of those days. While he was hiding in the secret room he heard a series of gunshots outside the House and he immediately thought that the boers had in fact now found him and that it was all over and he was being recaptured. But John Howard being the great guy that he was anticipating the anxiety that church would have been feeling after hearing the gunshots. He soon came up to ease his fear telling him that. It wasn't fact a bore military officer that had come but that they weren't looking for. Churchill any longer and this was because they said that they had caught Churchill the day before in another town which obviously was untrue given the fact Churchill himself was hearing this news regardless though to get the man to leave the Property Howard challenged him to a rifle shooting contest which he lost to the man and he paid the guy two pounds and then the man took off and after hearing this of course Churchill felt much better but then Howard said something else that made Churchill anxious once again Howard said as he left the small room quote. It's all fixed up for tonight and quote meaning that the time for hiding out was now over and the time for escape had now come. Churchill responded with quote what do I do Howard replied quote? Nothing you simply follow me when I come for you. And so here was the next phase of the plan in a nutshell. John Howard knew a man named Charles Burnham who was a Dutch shopkeeper who live nearby and it's worth noting here that Churchill refers to burn them in his recollection of the events as Bergner. Now I'm not certain if he was simply disguising the man's name in his book or simply got it wrong. But this shopkeeper Burnham sympathized with the British and John Howard knew this so Howard approached Burnham about helping Churchill Escape and Burnham agreed to help Burnham then mentioned that he was scheduled to ship a large order of wool by train to delegate obey the exact point that church was trying to get to and this shipment was scheduled to leave on December nineteenth. So if they wanted to try it they hype. Churchill in the middle of this will shipment and smuggled Churchill into Portuguese East Africa that way. And here's how Churchill himself captures how he would be smuggled out in the bales of wool quote. The bales could be so packed as to leave a small place in the center of the truck in which I could be concealed and quote and truck here means train car and this would be easily accomplished as well given the fact that the mind itself was connected with the main railway by a small branch line and all of Burnham's bales of wool would be loaded onto the train right next to the mine and this was no small order of Wolf. Either as Churchill describes the amount of well being shipped would quote fill two or three large trucks and quote and so now that the plan was in place and everything was secured the reality of this next phase of his escape landed upon Churchill. Pretty heavily he wrote of the state of his mind at point and the idea of losing his freedom and it's a lengthy quote but an important one as it really does give us a sense of what Churchill was thinking. Here he wrote quote. I was more worried about this than almost anything that happened to me so far in my adventure when by extraordinary chance one has gained some great advantage or prize and actually had it in one's own possession and been enjoying it for several days. The idea of losing it becomes almost unsupportable. I had really come to count upon freedom as a certainty and the idea of having to put myself in a position which I should be perfectly helpless without a move of any kind absolutely at the caprice of Searching Party at the frontier was profoundly harassing rather than face this ordeal. I would've much preferred to start off on the velde with a pony and a guide and far from the haunts of man to make my way march by March beyond the wide territories of the Boer Republic. However in the end. I accepted this proposal of my generous rescuer and arrangements were made accordingly end quote and with the plan in place and with Churchill committed to it he now had to just sit and wait for the moment of truth then at two. Am in the darkness of the early morning. Hours of December nineteenth. The door to the secret room were. Churchill was still hiding opened and there in the doorway once again stood John Howard. The time had come Aw..

"winston churchill" Discussed on Behind the Bastards

"We're back. We're back and we're talking about how the support of shows with products and services services is completely different than anything that was related to the domination of India by imperial Britain how colonialism has nothing to do with the global the state of neoliberal capitalism today all right man whatever you say do. I was trying to tell you my girlfriend. Oh well yes but your girlfriend is named neoliberal capitalism. I mean yeah. She got a fat ass shit. She should the boy okay so one popular concessions suggested by some in the British Empire's parliament was that India could be made into a dominion which sounds like it would mean more power for like the UK over India but actually mean less like Canada and Australia were both dominions dominions oh come so like a dominion has autonomy over most of its own affairs but is still bound to the UK economically and militarily okay sure yeah yeah yeah but they're they're basically independent but like they're militarily and economically aligned to the mother country and stuff so that's what a a lot of people in India want it. They were like we're not GONNA win. You need to cut ties entirely but like we want to be able to do our own ship for the most part a little bit. Yeah seemed very very a reasonable request. Actually a reasonable request is total independence but like within the context of the Times a lot of people saw this very reasonable. Winston Churchill was not not one of these people he wrote this in the Daily Mail Quote Dominion Status Can certainly not be attained while India is prey to fierce racial and religious dissensions nations and when the withdrawal of British protection would mean the immediate resumption of Medieval wars the truth is that Gandhi Ism and all it stands for will sooner or later have to be grappled with and finely finely crushed it is no use trying to satisfy a tiger by feeding him with cats meet okay got a lot of thoughts on that sure now first of all. I watched a vox video on this. I like to watch vox videos every morning I do something called the morning dump or I sit on my toilet and I watch informative videos videos on Youtube and I know for a fact that a lot of the racial and or religious tensions in England I mean in India my apologies the work kind of stoked by British Interest Yup Yup the British thought that Muslims were basically decent people all and like a fundamentally noble religion in Hinduism was barbarous and cruel so they frequently stoke division between the two sides would often use Muslim soldiers to suppress the Hindus News which is a big part of why not that there weren't some tensions between different groups prior to the British arrival but it's a big part of why when like the partitioning of Pakistan and India Eh there were millions of people killed in internet seeing violence and they and the British were behind that shit they kept fucking like people getting actual solutions and they were just like now. Let's continue to make these engines higher and higher and it's the same thing Britain did in for example like Africa. If you WANNA look at Idi Amin we did. We did a two parter episode on him but like they everywhere where they went. They did the same thing where they'd pick one racial group to support over the other and it wasn't just them you know the Belgians didn't Rwanda which led to that genocide it was just like it was just the smart art thing to do. If you're a colonialist power. There's going to be thirty white guys. Ruling a country of a million people like that's how you make it work and and what's so insane to me is that this dude is going to go on the Daily Mail which I didn't know it was a legit newspaper. I was once five lines of headline and just a a bunch of ads. That's what it is now at least whatever I always been shit but it's always been a Shit Oregon for the fire right okay so Winston. Churchill was welcome in there yeah but it's okay so then it's not real so then I mean it's it's real like he's fucking a powerful dude but like yeah it's it's. It's just an organ. It's it's not real journalism so then for him to go on there and say well. You know if we leave that region it. What makes me really upset about this is that this is the exact count shift? That's happening in Iraq right now like literally word for the same exact shit where we went in there. We've caused all this defied now. There's two very strong religious groups. Are I think those are ethnic groups that have a little bit of issues with each other and we're just like well. If we pull hello now if we do this at now these because it's going to hate each other but we did that shit like what we did that exacerbated the divide between Suny Indian Shia was dissolved the Iraqi military as soon as we invaded because Iraqi military was kind of like the glue that bound a lot of those those chunks of citing together and once wants that was cut apart not only did it leave hundreds of thousands of armed and trained men without jobs but it's sort of destroyed this thing that had a socially cohesive process and I don't want to understate the US government's role in sort of stoking those divides largely through ignorance and incompetence. I should also point out that Iran on has played a major role in that by sort of arming and organizing the Shia chunks of the country. It's a very complicated situation. Everybody fucking up yeah yeah. so Winston Churchill was absolutely fucking dedicated to maintaining the British empire as it had been in his father's Day he was utterly unwilling to give up India yeah but at the same time World War Two introduced significant complications for him England being a small island did not have the resources necessary to compete with Germans who by nineteen forty two controlled control basically all of Europe they needed India to have any hope of survival but at this point the British couldn't just take shit from the subcontinent in April of nineteen forty the UK had agreed to share the costs of the war with India essentially agreeing to pay for anything the subcontinent spent on stuff that was not specifically necessary for its own immediate protection so if the Indian government spent money on like coastal defenses because the Japanese were kind of like th that India would pay for the British government needed raw materials else to make those bombers that Lindemann was a fan of or if they needed soldiers to help them fight like the elite Gurkhas who were such terrorist to the German very mocked the British the government would foot the bill for that and since they didn't have any cash on hand because they were kind of broke his shit at this point they would send India. I owe us so homeboy so they basically turned Indian till like a little bit of bank account yes exactly exactly and as Britain's debt to India piled up Churchill virtual and those around him begin to realize that their colony would soon be able to buy out every British interest in the subcontinent and if it did that they'd be independent in all but name now I am very critical of Winston Churchill anything anybody who reads history must be but you do have to acknowledge that in the early nineteen forties he was dealing with an shit avalanche of the problems foremost on his mind was the fact that for a while there it seemed that Germany was going to cut the British isles or England in Ireland and Scotland. I should say off from the rest of the world via U Boat Campaign and Starve everybody now. This was not irrational. Fear largely because the British had starved Germany during World War One in a million again people had starved to death as a result of their blockade so they did have reason to be scared and the Germans had reason to want to starve the listenership back. Let's see how if you run on this shit back. This brings us to Frederick Lindemann the proof by nineteen forty to Winston Churchill had started calling his friend for advice on literally every topic that crossed his desk he believed that the quote beautiful brain and had endless faith in his ability to reason through problems so he asked the Prophet to help him solve England's food situation a problem that would absolutely involve India because India was the empire's greatest source of raw resources. Now linneman was not the worst guy to half trying to solve a logistical testicle hurdle like how to stockpiling food. He had a decent enough brain for that but he had a terrible brain forgiving shit about people who were not white prove if to be a devastating problem for the world. I'm going to quote now from Churchill. Secret War Linneman had been to India once in nineteen twenty nine. He visited an Indian mountain resort to serve on a panel on forestry. He was repelled by blacks but he took along his English Valet and did not have to be touched by native hands on the strength of this two month tour he would aid churchill the show with the colony's affairs for the next two decades in nineteen thirty-one Churchill asked him to study the constitution. The British government was devised for India to show up. It's weak points and the Ferret out background and and funding of the Indian National Congress apart from a distaste of dark-skinned foreigners and working class Britons the latter being insufferably stupid Lindemann had a horror of ugly faces these this quote set up a violent prejudice which only the most supreme intellectual merits could counter way so this is the guy who's in charge in large part about what's what's GonNa Happen to India during World War Two not a great dude to have in that role not at all he went to that country and he saw and he was just like this worth. This shit ain't worth the effort that's what he walked away fucking thinking yeah yeah and he never even tried to like actually like like experience the culture no yeah uh I one of the details I found was that when Winston Churchill was a young man in India and a soldier he would like any soldier station that you basically got like your own sizable sizable house with servants to see after you because like you know there were very few white guys in the whole country existed to serve them and Churchill would while he was still asleep be shaved in bed every morning by a servant like that's the kind of lifestyle these guys lead but Frederick Lindemann was to racist to even take that kind of treatment because it would have meant a non white person touching touching him so I guess we have to say at least Churchill was willing to be touched by. It's like I don't understand what he's expecting gain from the end like then why go stale ass at home. Oh I think it was like it was a career thing. Being a part of this panel would have been good for his career trash raw string. He was a bad person now. In March of nineteen forty two Japanese forces occupied Burma which cut off a huge amount of the cheap sheep rice that Fed India's poor the empire of the rising sun began stationing forces on India's eastern border and the war cabinet responded by pulling huge quantities of food in raw materials away from Bengal in order to deny them to the enemy in the event of an invasion they also pulled barges away from the coast which were crucial for transporting food. All all of this caused the price of food to rise in its here that I should note the primary cause of modern famine is not a lack of available food but a lack of affordable food because because capitalism edgar is a flawless system now so now obviously the rising food.

Co put him on the waiting list hope to see you in January and now back to the show was churchill a religious man like did he have that a sort of a bedrock for because he seems so steadfast was religion and that that sort of bedrock forum was it something else he It wasn't really rich no he was he believed in an Almighty but when you look logically I'd say three sold you to you might he seems to have been to look after Winston. Churchill Churchill had many many brushes with death in his life. I have many accidents where he died and he believed in what he called invisible wings that were beating heaven and protecting him but he was also okay conventionally religious man in any way in fact he described his relationship to the Church of England being like the flying buttress in that he supported the judge but from the outside some of described Churchill as sort of spiritual but not religious in the sense says you said he didn't go to church but he still had a real capacity a pass for wonder and a sense of the transcendent he believed in absolute good and evil in the heroic clash between those forces had a firm moral code bedrock of principles like like honor loyalty and courage and he he would take time to contemplate supplies fireplace with chart will reflecting he also seemed to have a different kind of faith as well sort of faith in the British Empire. Yes he had a secular faith in the in the gym pop in a sense of also the sort of weakish progression in history. He believed that people were were moving. Would I'm not sure he felt that way. After outfits in the death camps revealed. I'm not sure that he he had this sense. That mankind was getting better very much off the off the bat but nonetheless is life. He tended to leave in a in the general sense of of human progress so churchill. After the Boer war he got elected to parliament had a political career and then he was put in place as the first Lord of the Ad Morality but he made some blunders there he talks about what those blunders weren't. How'd affected his political career. Yes well as food. I would be admiralty. He was in charge of the Royal Navy and he came up with this this idea in many ways a genius concept which was to get the royal all navy through the Straits between Europe and Asia and more it off concerns Naple Mondays Thembu and basically knock doc Turkey not be of them out of the central powers which would have been a brilliant scheme if it'll come off one of the great coups of the of rubber one but unfortunately as a result of some mine laying the night before the the attack we lost six ships in the allies all six ships on the day of the Nineteen fifteen and it was catastrophic and instead of cooling hoping off judgment fisted on on a land offensive on the European side on the Gallipoli an era which ultimately led to the killing a winding of nephew of the nine hundred forty seven seven thousand allied troops and what happened to his career after that after that happened when he was full resign was the was the first thing happened to it in November nineteen fifteen. They're often even when he was brought back into the government again nature in the first world war every time he gave a speech public meeting taking someone would shout out what about the doll house and this would carry on for another fifteen longer. years of this graph was this the time that was known as Churchill's chills wilderness years there. The woman is actually in nineteen thirty when he resigned from the shadow cabinet and they confessed if shadow cabinet and then spent can years warning against Hitler Nazis but prior to that he had a long period in government when he was home of the Exchequer uh-huh and Ministry of the colonies and various other important pastes like that up to a conservative defeat in the nineteen twenty nine general election. Ooh Well. How do those mistakes he made that happened in world war one the Dardanelles how did that set him up for success during World War to learn from that experience it learn in. Yes no exact he made terrible mistakes in his life. You know they want from moments. Think anybody to think that that's not a deeply flawed individual. He certainly roles and he made a series in state. He made a mistake as the exchequer in going onto the gold standard at the wrong time at the wrong price in nineteen twenty five. If he goes women suffrage grown he got the application wrong. He got the dog analysis. I mentioned earlier very happy Rome. You know this is not a man who got everything racing career by any means however he was a politician who learned from his mistakes and to pick up the one that you mentioned the daughter now he never once overruled overruled the British chiefs of Staff during the Second World War so even constitutionally he could as minister of defense he actually never once picked up and that was they great message that he he took great lesson that he learned from that catastrophe so we mentioned the Churchill was one of the few people who saw the dangers offers of Nazism when it started coming to rise in his his appreciation for history is knowledge of history allowed him to do that. But what did you have any personal experience where he became gymnast unshakable belief that Hitler had ambitions to conquer Europe. Yes Churchill as well as being historian and eating Nazism message as an historical a threat in terms of the past Churchill say was a fi night. He likes Jeez. He got on with these personally grown up with them. His father had like Jews he the represented Jewish constituency is up Zionist support of the Balfour Declaration and so of course he has an early warning system for the evils of Ah the Nazis and far earlier on the lot of the other people sitting on the benches within viz agent in class background background in Britain at that time many Morandi ethic and so that was another of the ways that is sort of personal beliefs and background allowed him to be the first major which exploded addition to warn against what was happening and he was also one of the few leaders who actually read Hitler's Mein Kampf and he tried to. Ah Tell people okay look. He says right here in the book what he plans on doing then another you mentioned too was when he was working in India like he saw jihadis like he saw extremists. Yes we're not just India also of course the Sudanese campaign where he was fighting against the forces of the Califa- owner of the library of the kind of came down to the Islamic fundamentalist fascism and so you had in the sense that he both in in India and Africa came up very impersonal to the fanaticism in this case religious richest. Max isn't of course but if Nazism but he was too spoke again thirty years later in the Nazis so one thing that that happened throughout rituals shows life is that he always got pushback. He was always getting criticized. He was described as a pusher. Something you didn't do right you. Didn't you weren't supposed to be publicly ambitious. Che's right and then but also he got criticized for all the things he did but it didn't seem to faze them all that much. What was it about Churchill's Joel's character or past experience in life that allowed them just to be so stoic in the face of so much criticism thrown at them. When I go to ethically correct UH response that really which is the announced tremendously bad the I have a sense of entitlement in public life today but he was tremendously mendaciously entitled he was the son well the grandson of Duke he been born in a palace at the very apex of Victorian Society and which he considered to be the greatest society up until that point to mystery of the world so he really didn't get much what other people thought that which of course is not a whiz very good in democratic politics but boy did he need that in the decade of the Wilderness Years Nineteen Thirties when he was shot shot down in the House of Commons decried nitty nitty how to see taken away from him by conservatives. He's attacked in the press constantly. He had a thick skin importantly down to his extremely in sort of grand backgrounds the amount him not to care what other people thought them. There's a picture in the book him when he was seven and he looks like like an Aristocrat even at seven years that he's he's he's got his hand on his hip and and his dad pointed up and he's he's seven years old and he will be a himself so yeah. He didn't have that middle class. Status Anxiety diety wasn't worried about his place he just he knew what his place was and he just just kept on that. Yes there wasn't a it wasn't a middle class audie body and he knew it but he's like he was an Aristocrat but he wasn't a SNOB. No He he didn't have any snow business that I was able to spot else in four years of of reading papers and his letters and and all that he actually with me look at his friends who away two of them initially would UK's excuse the next seven or eight of his place. His friends were never middle-class came from from very humble backgrounds some of them and he treated absolutely precisely the same as the people who were boom to the purple so in an important person in Churchill's life was his wife Clementine. What role did his his wife played in his career throughout his life. She was very important..

"Grandsons, quote, if you were to put Winston Churchill here today, does anyone really believe with all his experience that looking out over a very unstable fragile uncertain world. He would think this was a good idea for Britain to cut itself. Loose from the continent. Andrew Churchill himself implores you to reconsider niche with tool, this is an area where Nicholson I disagree. I think that although of course, torture was one of the founders of the European movements and said. Let Europe arise and he wanted to the Tutu never again to fight gold as he puts it with regard to from Germany when it actually comes to his and he became prime minister in April. So I take a nineteen fifty one through to April nineteen fifty five so just before the actual treaty of Rome in nineteen fifty seven created the repeated community. He did nothing at all to bring Britain to towards that. He he didn't join the on and steal confederation. He's enjoying the European army. He put out minutes, many of which are some of which quotes it in this book saying that he didn't want to get Britain invoked. He very much wanted it to be a success, and he just didn't won't ask to threaten what he saw as our connections with the United States special relationship, the Commonwealth of cools and our ability to do trade deals with every other country in the world, which was of course, of ultimately to to end when we when we did join the common. What about this notion? The remainders of this would be I don't wanna put words in his mouth. But I think it would be the Cameron Osborne argument. This is bad economics to which some of the Brexit tears, and here, I don't wanna put words in your mouth say no, it's not just a matter of economic, by the way, we disagree with you on economics. We can trade with the rest of the world more easily. But we also it's about much more than that. It's about sovereignty. It's about our national sense of identity. It's about whether we will rule ourselves or be ruled from Brussels, and they say that's at word in romantic nonsense, have any problems explaining this to an American. How would you feel if if the phone body had the had the right to to give over the heads of the court and the heads of you'll congress, and and decide to lose for you? And it something that I don't think any American would put up with ten seconds. And so I can I never have any problem explaining why I'm Brexit here. All right now explained to me what highly intelligent people such as David Cameron, Nicholas Soames, and George Osborne would be remainders. Because they obviously didn't get to hold onto the color of the the European Court of Justice and the and the way in which Brussels in my view impinges on British soap and all right. Churchill again, we began to the program by by talking about what a thorough Ristic crat. He was and how deeply committed. He was to the British empire. The aristocratic order is no more. There are titled people tottering around desperate to keep to keep their big houses in operation. Lenham is now working museum. You get to tour for fifteen quid the house of lords is filled with with Tunis's who've given life peerages it's over. It's just over that's relevant. Now, the British empire is gone and not only gone, but unfashionable to save good word on behalf of it. Even in Britain. What relevance? It's a wonderful story. Everybody agrees. It's a wonderful story. And we have proof of that. Because every single review says gripping the best one volume biography ever so forth. But what relevance does he have for us today? He has more relevance today probably than ever before he is a figure who Trump sins all of the things you just mentioned might the British empire and the aristocracy safe because his story is one of extraordinarily extraordinary, physical courage, and then allied to moral courage. He didn't change his stones when he was being attacked shouted down in the house of Commons and nearly de-selected from his seat by the conservative party and ridiculed lampooned in the presence on he carried on making the same truth telling same truths about it.

"And so I use them the diaries of I've in mice key, the Russian ambassador nine hundred forty three era vailable now, which they weren't three or four years ago. The the beta mccown's of the war cabinet, actually, which I discovered seven years ago. I knew that I would be able to use quite heavily in this as well. Go and health. Made it didn't made any use of those quite extraordinary. So I there was something on pretty much every page of this book. That's never appeared in a church will biography before. Will come in a moment to Churchill and action. Of course, we will. But we need to set the stage. I reckon particularly for an American audience with regard to to particulars. Here's the first Churchill the aristocrat walking with destiny Churchill was the last aristocrat to rule Britain, he possessed the unconquerable self-confidence of his caste background. All right. Make an American audience understand what that means. What did it mean to have been born in Blenheim palace? The grandson of juke. In palace. Of course is the greatest of all the British palaces. Even the royals envy the of over for blend him and the grandson of a but not as any Oji Duke of more bre, one of the greatest grand is people in the country. And therefore he had what today we call the sense of entitlement. That is totally massive. And he didn't care what people thought of him which in his life turned out to be an extraordinarily useful asset because I'm sure we can come onto the nineteen thirties later, but the attacks that were made on him throughout his life. Really you needed to have a rhinoceros hide. And the reason that he did have that was partly because of his agent class and background. He he really didn't sort of mind. What other people thought of him because he was so grand? Sort of been born in Ristic crat in the second. But was we've been the last third of the nineteenth century simply fool, so yes to is to have been born into world of total utter self confidence. That's right. But also, of course, a world where you privilege imbued you with responsibility to give back. All right. And here's the second vital piece of the background that I think takes a little bit of explaining for an American audience the British empire again walking with destiny Andrew here. I'm quoting from nineteen forty one entry with someone you just named the diary of I've in mice Keith the Soviet Basseterre in London, quote, whom he saw as far as I can tell you make out that he saw I've in my ski almost as much as you saw the king. It was it was very close. It happened. Should absolutely handsome, especially after the Russian and the invasion of Russia by Germany, right? So here's Ivan my ski Churchill has told me more than once over the years, and I have no ground. To disbelieve him shrewd old communist there. Is it true? Or not that the British empire is his alpha and omega close quote now today, even in Britain speaking well of the empire is just a nonstarter. So how are Americans to understand this man who had? Who well who's alpha and omega whose lodestar was the defense of the empire, the impove that he wanted to fend was not some evil sinister in Perlis construct, the nineteen sixties Marxist professors talk about it, wasn't fact paternalist concept something that the ninety percents of the history of the empire ninety percents of the native peoples of the empire was a good thing and Winston Churchill soul that himself up in the North West Frontier where he was protecting them path from the payphones in the free day in the Talib tribes. He saw an empire which had given so much to the people of India. That it was entirely different concept from the kind of thing that we're told in our schools today about them somewhere that had brought internal peace for the longest period of time. It had doubled the life expectancy. It had brought the amount of nand under cultivation multiplied by eight times it had given a Westminster style politics. Which course, it still has this day has the English language that is invaluable for an India as the first world language, it abolished evil and sinister things like the Suttie the throwing of widows onto funeral pyres..
