It's Tuesday, November 15th, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com.  I'm Adam McManus.  (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Kevin Swanson Laos pastor abducted, tortured, and killed Government authorities are highly suspected to be the cause of the murder of a pastor and father of eight children in Laos. Pastor Seetoud of the Nakai District in the Khammouane Province was abducted, tortured, and killed while he was on his way to minister in a village 60 miles from his home.  His body was severely disfigured, his Bible was found near his body, and motorcycle just off the main road.  Morning Star News reports that two other Christians who had planned to join pastor for the meeting in the village said he was delayed because two unidentified officials were questioning him about his activities and reasons for travel to the town.  According to Open Doors, Laos is the 26th worst country for the persecution of Christians. Nigerian Muslims killed 4,000 Christians this year The most severe persecution in the world, by body count, is happening in Nigeria this year, reports The Christian Post. Thus far, in 2022, Islamic jihadist groups in Nigeria have killed at least 4,000 Christians and abducted more than 2,300, according to the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law  130,000 U.S. tech layoffs in 2022 so far Big layoffs have started in the United States.   Amazon has announced 10,000 layoffs to commence this week, amounting to 3% of its corporate workforce. Facebook is also shedding 11,000 jobs. That's about 13% of its workforce. Meantime, following Elon Musk's buyout, Twitter has laid off half its workforce of 8,000 employees along with 4,400 of its 5,500 contract employee base.   In 2022, Layoffs.fyi reports there have been 130,000 tech layoffs involving 788 tech companies.  Big Tech's persecution of conservative, Christian groups Napa Legal Institute has reported on Big Tech's de-platforming and other forms of persecution that have been let loose on Christians over the last few years. The report indicated 27 instances of high-profile Christian, pro-life, pro-family ministries persecuted by Amazon, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Tiktok, since 2020.   Psalm 37:1-3 comes to mind. “Do not fret because of evildoers, nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.” Republicans hold out hope for control of House While the Democrats retained control of the U.S. Senate in the 2022 elections, the House of Representatives is still up for grabs. Yesterday, the New York Times projected the Republicans would gain control by 1-3 Congressional seats. The two states where concerted ground was made for Republicans in the 2022 elections were Georgia and Florida. Meanwhile, the Democrats gained ground in Pennsylvania.  The Democrats also were successful at flipping state houses in Michigan, Minnesota, and Arizona. The Economist's surprise at mid-term election results The Economist magazine summarized the election this way. It said, “At the half-way mark between presidential elections, voters routinely give the incumbent party a beating. But, despite high inflation and low approval ratings for Joe Biden, the Republicans are unsure to flip the Senate and look likely to win control of the House with one of the smallest swings in years.” U.S. church attendance has dropped 15% Lifeway Research reports that U.S. church attendance has dropped off 15% in the last two years. The survey of 1,000 pastors found that Pentecostal churches and non-denominational churches grew the most over the last two years. The Reformed Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist, and Church of Christ denominations saw the least growth. United Methodist Church on the ropes The United Methodist denomination is bleeding churches.   Another 58 local churches in Louisiana have voted to leave the denomination for the matter of homosexual faux-marriage. Back in June, 70 churches in Georgia left, 30 more Methodist churches in North Carolina left, and over 100 congregations in Florida are moving in that direction. “The Chosen” TV series quoted Book of Mormon And finally, the joint Mormon and Christian evangelical-produced series, The Chosen, has come under fire over quotations from the Book of Mormon.   The problematic section comes in the preview for the third season of the TV series, quoting, in part, from the Mormon book, 3 Nephi 15:9, where the Mormon Jesus is quoted as saying, “I am the Law of Moses.” Listen to how it played out. JEWISH LEADER:  “Jesus, if you do not renounce your words, we will have no choice but to follow the law of Moses.” JESUS: “ I am the law of Moses!” Dallas Jenkins, the director, claimed the line was not a direct quote from the Book of Mormon, but written by the script writers, reports Crosswalk. 3 Nephi 15:9 says, “Behold, I am the law, and the light. Look unto me, and endure to the end, and ye shall live; for unto him that endureth to the end will I give eternal life.” In an article in a Mormon publication, called LDSLiving, Derral Eves, one of two Mormon executive producers of The Chosen, explained that he was aware that the show's creator, Dallas Jenkins, has received pushback for choosing to work with Mormons. In fact, Eves became emotional when talking about that opposition in a recent podcast interview. The trailer of The Chosen for Season 3 made it to first place on YouTube's trending chart during its first week out, reaching a total of 2.1 million views. The first two episodes of Season 3 will hit theaters this Thursday, November 18th.    The Scriptures tell us plainly: “The law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” (John 1:17) Close And that's The Worldview on this Tuesday, November 15th, in the year of our Lord 2022.  Subscribe by iTunes or email to our unique Christian newscast at www.TheWorldview.com.

每日英語跟讀 Ep.K452: A quick look at the 2022 Nobel Prizes All the 2022 Nobel Prizes have now been announced. Here's a look at which prizes have been announced, and what's next for the winners. 二〇二二年諾貝爾獎所有獎項得主已經宣佈。以下是所公布的獎項,以及獲獎者的下一步。 MEDICINE The medicine or physiology prize is by tradition the first Nobel to be announced. This year's award went to Swedish scientist Svante Paabo for discoveries about human evolution achieved through analyses of the DNA of Neanderthals and other ancient relatives of modern humans. 醫學獎 按照傳統,醫學或生理學獎是第一個公布的諾貝爾獎。今年的獎項授予瑞典科學家斯萬特‧帕博,以表彰他透過分析尼安德塔人及其他現代人類遠古親屬之DNA,對人類進化所得到的發現。 PHYSICS The Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded Tuesday last week to Frenchman Alain Aspect, American John F. Clauser and Austrian Anton Zeilinger. The trio shared the prize for discovering the way that particles known as photons can be linked, or ``entangled'' with each other, even when they are separated by large distances. 物理學獎 諾貝爾物理學獎於週二授予法國籍的阿蘭‧阿斯佩、約翰‧克勞澤及奧地利籍的安東‧蔡林格。三人因研究發現看不見的粒子(稱為光子)可以相互連接或互相「糾纏」──即便相距很遠──而共同獲獎。 CHEMISTRY The Nobel Prize in Chemistry was jointly awarded on Wednesday last week to Americans Carolyn R. Bertozzi and K. Barry Sharpless and Danish scientist Morten Meldal for their work on click chemistry, a field of research that can be used to design better medicines. Sharpless is a repeat winner: He won the chemistry prize also in 2001. 化學獎 諾貝爾化學獎於上週三聯合授予美國籍的凱洛琳‧柏托西、卡爾‧巴里‧沙普利斯,以及丹麥科學家莫滕‧莫代爾,以表彰他們在點擊化學方面的研究,點擊化學可用來設計更好的藥物。沙普利斯並非第一次得諾貝爾獎:他在二〇〇一年已獲得諾貝爾化學獎。 LITERATURE The Swedish Academy on Thursday last week gave the Nobel Prize in Literature to French writer Annie Ernaux for “the courage and clinical acuity with which she uncovers the roots, estrangements and collective restraints of personal memory.” Ernaux, 82, has written more than 20 books, most of them very short, chronicling events in her life and the lives of those around her. Her work paints uncompromising portraits of sexual encounters, abortion, illness and the deaths of her parents. 文學獎 瑞典學院上週四將諾貝爾文學獎授予法國作家安妮‧艾諾,以表彰她「以勇氣和手術般的精準,從個人記憶挖掘根源、隔閡與集體壓抑」。八十二歲的艾諾寫了超過二十本書,多數都很短,記錄她及周遭人生命中的事件。她的作品毫不妥協地描繪了性邂逅、墮胎、疾病,以及她父母的死亡。 PEACE This year's Nobel Peace Prize was shared Friday last week by jailed Belarus rights activist Ales Bialiatski, the Russian group Memorial and the Ukrainian organization Center for Civil Liberties. The Norwegian Nobel Committee said the laureates “have made an outstanding effort to document war crimes, human right abuses and the abuse of power. Together they demonstrate the significance of civil society for peace and democracy.” The prize was seen as a strong rebuke to the authoritarian rule of Russian President Vladimir Putin. 和平獎 今年的諾貝爾和平獎得主於上週五公布,由被監禁的白俄羅斯維權人士阿列斯‧畢亞利亞茨基、俄國人權組織「紀念」,以及烏克蘭組織「公民自由中心」共同獲得。挪威諾貝爾委員會表示,獲獎者「在記錄戰爭罪、人權侵犯和權力濫用方面做出了重要的努力。它們共同彰顯了公民社會對和平及民主的重要性」。此獎項被視為對俄國總統弗拉迪米爾‧普亭獨裁統治的強烈譴責。 ECONMICS The final announcement came on Monday with the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, which is not an original Nobel Prize but was established by the Swedish central bank in 1968. Former US Federal Reserve Chair Ben Bernanke, who put his academic expertise on the Great Depression to work reviving the American economy after the 2007-2008 financial crisis, won the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences along with two other US-based economists, Douglas Diamond and Philip Dybvig, for their research into the fallout from bank failures. 經濟學獎 最後宣布的獎項,是週一公佈的諾貝爾經濟學獎,最初諾貝爾獎並未有此獎項,這是瑞典中央銀行在一九六八年設立的。前美國聯準會主席班‧伯南奇在二〇〇七—二〇〇八年金融危機後,將其在大蕭條方面的學術專長用於重振美國經濟,他與另外兩位美國經濟學家──道格拉斯‧戴蒙和菲利普‧戴柏維格,對銀行倒閉之後果的研究,共同獲得諾貝爾經濟學獎。 WHAT DO THE WINNERS RECEIVE? Nobel Prize laureates are invited to receive their awards at prize ceremonies held on Dec. 10, the anniversary of award founder Alfred Nobel's death in 1896. The prize includes a diploma, a gold medal and a monetary award of 10 million Swedish kronor (about US$900,000). The Nobel Peace Prize is handed out in the Norwegian capital, Oslo, while the other awards are presented in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, in line with Nobel's wishes. 諾貝爾獎得主會獲得什麼? 諾貝爾獎得主受邀出席十二月十日所舉行的頒獎典禮領獎,這是諾獎創辦人阿弗烈‧諾貝爾一八九六年逝世的紀念日。獲獎者會領到一張證書、一枚金牌和獎金一千萬瑞典克朗(約合九十萬美元)。諾貝爾和平獎在挪威首都奧斯陸頒發,其他獎項則是在瑞典首都斯德哥爾摩頒發,這是依據貝爾的意願。Source article: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2022/10/11/2003786775 歡迎留言告訴我們你對這一集的想法: https://open.firstory.me/user/cl81kivnk00dn01wffhwxdg2s/comments Powered by Firstory Hosting

10月7日,諾貝爾和平獎頒給白羅斯人權運動者畢亞利亞茨基(Ales Bialiatski)、被俄國迫害而停止運作的轉型正義組織「紀念」(Memorial),以及仍留在戰場前線,蒐證俄軍戰爭罪暴行的烏克蘭人權團體「公民自由中心」(The Center for Civil Liberties )。 1987年成立的「紀念」,長久以來被西方公認是「俄國的良心」,其致力為史達林獨裁時代的政治犯平反、留存史料,聲援良心犯、難民與NGO,卻被控違反《外國代理人法》遭強制解散。不同於民主國家的制度設計,這部俄版《外國代理人法》因其模糊寬鬆的裁量空間,已成為普丁用以騷擾、箝制公民團體與異議者的利器。 就在獲頒諾貝爾和平獎後的數小時,俄國法院便下令將「紀念」的莫斯科總部充公。今年4月,《報導者》曾獨家越洋專訪「紀念」成員;正面臨「司法追殺」的他們,仍不輕言放棄,以守護記憶的方式,抵抗來自極權體制的壓迫。 製作團隊|詹婉如、汪彥成

Are your movements being tracked?Whether you like it or not, your driving habits are being observed and specific identifiable information that is only connected to you is being stored in huge databases that the police own and oversee.Our mission and goals are always to educate and empower you with what you need to know in order to protect yourself from any unconstitutional intrusions into your person, papers and effects as well as your personal privacy. It may not always be what you want to hear but it always is what you need to hear.  “Justice comes to those that fight … not those that cry!”You may not know that you may be being tracked by Automatic License Plate Reading Cameras (ALPRs). Today, data is a gold mine.ALPRs use a combination of cameras and computer software to indiscriminately scan the license plates of every passing car.  They log the time and date of each scan, the GPS coordinates, and pictures of the car.  Some can snap pictures of a vehicle's occupants and create unique vehicle IDs.  The devices send the data to software which can compare each plate against a designated “hot list.” Such lists can include stolen cars and cars associated with AMBER Alerts for abducted children.Since the earliest license plate reader technology debuted in the late 1970s, it has evolved to become one of the most essential and widely used tools law enforcement agencies have in their arsenal.

Climate Change and the Law of the SeaSea level rise due to climate change will directly impact at least 70 countries, many of them small, low-lying island nations. Though their contribution to climate change is very little, they face some of its worst consequences. This is not a new issue, and tension has been building since the late 1980s. In 1989, the Maldives, an island nation in the Indian Ocean, issued an international declaration, the first of its kind, calling attention to sea level rise due to climate change, and how it impacts its land. Island states often have small land area, but, under international law, have jurisdiction over a larger area of their surrounding seas for economic purposes. What if an island loses territory due to sea level rise? If so, it could lose its economic zone. This is also a national security question; could another nation then legally take over this economic zone? Currently, the international law framework, called the Law of the Sea, does not answer these questions even though the  livelihoods of millions are at issue. A 2021 declaration by Pacific Island nations calls for maritime boundaries to stay where they are now regardless of sea level rise. However, this requires the endorsement of other nations. The United Nations, up until now, has paid comparatively little attention to this issue, but, through its study group on sea-level rise, the UN is aiming to engage non-low-lying island nations, and attempt to resolve these and other questions. Climate Refugees Need Protected Status Under the LawBy 2050, there could be 1.2 billion climate refugees, according to the international think tank International Environmental Partnership. But these refugees often do not fit the legal definition of “refugee”, including individuals displaced in the United States. Becoming a “refugee” under the law confers special status; it protects from deportation, for example. In 2013, a man from Kiribati, a country undergoing severe sea level rise, applied for refugee status as a “climate refugee” in New Zealand. His application was denied, and he was repatriated to Kiribati. The man subsequently filed a complaint with the UN Convent of Civil Liberties, claiming his right to life had been violated. The man lost his case, because his life was not found to be under immediate danger. However, the wording of the UN's ruling in the case asserts that those fleeing a climate crisis cannot be sent home, thereby creating a non-binding international construct. This case illustrates some of the complexities raised by climate refugees and how they are currently viewed in many of the world's legal systems.  Sea level rise is not only an issue of the future but already an issue of the present. Who is Dr. Nilufer Oral?Dr. Nilufer Oral is director at the Center for International Law at the National University of Singapore.

The Myth that MAGA is Driven by "White Rage"

No matter how justified you think it is, prosecuting someone for what lives inside their minds and hearts is a road to ruin. It's even worse than that. It's a road to moral panics that lead to systematic dehumanization that wrecks whole societies. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg might have been selling secrets to the Soviets but that didn't mean everyone in America who ever supported Marxist ideology was a traitor. Fear of what you can't see leaves it up to your imagination, and when it comes to human beings, that is an unreliable source. Systematic dehumanization meant that newly freed slaves had to be turned into existential threats to an otherwise pristine uoptia in the South. They were thieves, murderers and rapists. In Nazi Germany, Jews were parasites, draft dodgers, and uniquely evil. It's been decided that Trump supporters, or MAGA, are all angry white men. They are an existential threat because inside their minds and hearts is the unique evil of racism. This has never been questioned. It is a fear that has become a certainty across all institutions, culturally and politically, not just on the Left but on the Establishment Right. That is the kind of rot that must live inside the mind and heart of Hillary Clinton so that she could casually compare working class people to Nazi Germany. She saw them raising their hands to Trump without looking a little more closely to see that wasn't the Nazi salute but cell phones.Trump supporters have no status. They don't have a net worth of $120 million, or an Apple-TV show, or a house in Chappaqua, New York. They've been beaten, spit on, screamed at, demonized, and called every name imaginable from Nazi to Fascist to Racist, and now to “domestic extremist,” “insurrectionist,” “election deniers.” Even before Trump won, the Left believed their violence against Trump supporters was justified: We can survive political differences. We can't survive this. What I realized over the past few years as I've gotten to know the world of MAGA it's that we have a choice: assume the worst about people or give them the benefit of the doubt.I would like to say I would give Hillary the benefit of the doubt. After all, I was the person who made this sign and marched along with millions for the Women's March:But with a teenager possibly run down and smeared as a “Republican extremist,” with Biden's militant fascist speech, with a death threat on Justice Kavanaugh's life, all running parallel to a dangerously politicized Department of Justice, I'm much too concerned with the fate of the country to worry about protecting Hillary one more time.White men and women are the new existential threat to the Left. But it is existential, not based on skin color. Black men can be “white supremacists in BlackFace,” like Larry Elder. Non-white women can be “Far Right Latinas” like Mayra Flores. Black women can be viciously attacked and trend for days on Twitter, like Candace Owens, receiving none of the protection she would get from the “antiracists.” Steve Bannon's secret weapon is that he knows MAGA isn't driven by “white rage.” He's been actively engaged in building a coalition of working-class Black and Hispanic voters, or what he calls “inclusive, participatory, nationalist populism” for at least five years. Anyone who dips a toe into MAGA Land quickly sees it's not about racism at all. It's driven more by class and yes, by Judeo-Christianity. From a story on Breitbart:“We've got to start having access to capital to black and Hispanic entrepreneurs,” Bannon said.During the financial crisis, Bannon said that the Wall Street class were taken care of by the government but that the smaller banks got crushed since many of them loaned money to working-class people who didn't get rescued by the government.“The elites took care of themselves,” he said.Bannon said that he was putting together a “task force” of black and Hispanic entrepreneurs to help them build their communities.That, he explained, was the way to evolve the Republican party into a working-class party for all Americans.“That's why the media and that's why the Democrats are freaked out about that,” he said.Up until recently, Christianity was the beating heart of this country that united most Americans by roughly 80%. I was never raised with any kind of religion because I am a child of the Left. Most Conservatives, though, don't look to politics for their collective sense of purpose. They look to God. This might explain why all of a sudden a new term has been dropped into the mix to demonize the MAGA movement: White Christian Nationalism:Only recently has the idea of someone being a Christian become a clear and present threat to the newfound religion of the Left. Says a story in Politico by Stella Rouse and Shibley Telhami:Christian nationalism, a belief that the United States was founded as a white, Christian nation and that there is no separation between church and state, is gaining steam on the right.Prominent Republican politicians have made the themes critical to their message to voters in the run up to the 2022 midterm elections. Doug Mastriano, the Republican nominee for governor in Pennsylvania, has argued that America is a Christian nation and that the separation of church and state is a “myth.” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Georgia hard-liner, declared: “We need to be the party of nationalism and I'm a Christian, and I say it proudly, we should be Christian Nationalists.” Amid a backlash, she doubled down and announced she would start selling “Christian Nationalist” shirts. Now Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis seems to be flirting with Christian nationalist rhetoric, as well.Always pivoting to racism is a convenient out for the Biden administration, which is disgraceful. But it's also a great way to sabotage this country, to keep us weak and divided. Although they don't yet realize it, the Left is gambling with its own existence. They're hoping to solve our population decline with the migrants flooding in from mostly Latin American countries. Most of the countries are rooted not in Wokeness but in Catholicism. Democrats believe they will be so grateful they'll vote Blue no matter who, but are they so sure about that?By hanging their entire platform on urging women to see abortions as no big deal, or even an act of empowerment, they're flirting with disaster if America begins to rise once again as a Christian nation, thanks to the influx of millions of new migrants. Not to mention most of them are likely to be socially conservative, which will run counter to the platform of the new Left.With declining sperm counts and fertility rates, not to mention population decline our future will not be siding with those who have the most abortions, but with those who have the most babies. It's simple math. Awaiting the RaptureUnless you were part of it, it's hard to explain the rapture most of us experienced when Obama rose to power. It was not just pure love for him, or that he had so much charisma, no scandals or baggage, a perfect family, or that he'd graduated from Harvard and had such sophisticated tastes, it was the idea that America had its first Black president. A new religion was born. For my generation and the one that came before, growing up without religion was cool. Only Republicans were church goers. Boomers traded their Christian upbringings in the 1950s for a cultural renaissance in the 1960s, Black Power, the Feminist movement, Civil Rights - it all exploded outward, away from traditional religion.As children of the “me” generation, we helicopter parents were spiritually adrift, aimless, and emotionally destroyed. We sought fulfillment in self-help therapy, where we talked about the abuse we suffered at the hands of narcissistic parents. We had Oprah every day at 3 pm where we worked out all of our problems as a society. Then came the McMartin preschool scare, Columbine, and 9/11. By the turn of the millennium, we were dealing with one threat after another. A 24-hour news cycle thanks to the OJ Trial, and now, the internet would provide us with second-to-second input of all the threats everywhere. We were primed and ready for one person to rise and give us all a collective sense of purpose. That person was President Barack Obama and the Obama coalition he built mostly online, Twitter specifically. As our kids took to the internet to escape our nonstop attentive coddling, an entire generation came of age as social media natives. They were forging new virtual identities, with new rules and new ways of seeing and identifying themselves with one another. What better way to do that than by skin color, gender, or victim status? If you were marginalized, you were protected. If you weren't, you were an oppressor; therefore, it was open season. For white kids without any cultural identity, gender became their way of distinguishing themselves from “cis-gendered, hetero-normative, colonizing white supremacists.”To them, identity was and is everything. They absorbed our growing fear about the rise of racism in America, which took root in 2008, with Conservatives like Steve Schmidt and John McCain concluding Sarah Palin was a xenophobic warrior for the White Race. We see this epiphany play out in the HBO movie Game Change. And just like that, the birth of the Never Trump movement and the idea that there were “good” Republicans and “bad” Republicans, and all of it was based on racism, was born. It just so happened that The Tea Party was challenging the whole system, Democrats and Republicans alike, who had sold out the country with a $700 billion bank bailout and bad trade policies. How convenient, then, to target them as racists: And when Trump questioned Obama's birth certificate, what else could that be, we all thought, except blatant racism? Obama graciously supplied a copy of his birth certificate but then mocked Trump publicly at the White House Correspondents Dinner. The two locked horns in 2011, and we're still watching a battle between Obama's America and Trump's. It also has morphed into a war between the Great Awokening and the Judao-Christian ethic. Many of the Zoomers, children of the newly Woke religious Left, grew up with the certainty that America was not only a systemically racist country, but they were living among millions of their fellow Americans who were racists. The social justice movement that now dominates the Left began in virtual hives on social media. Those kids went to the indoctrination factories our universities have become, grew up, joined the workforce and essentially did to America in 2020 what a group of activists did to Evergreen University. The Democrats, like the administration at Evergreen, the people who run the Motion Picture Academy, and all other members of the 1% buckled under the pressure. The New “Red” ScareIf history had gone differently, a moral panic in America in 2022 might have looked like another Red Scare. A discovery of Harvard professors selling information to the Chinese Communist Party, colliding with the virus from Wuhan, not to mention a near-complete takeover of our manufacturing jobs, might have set Americans on edge that Communists were once again at the gates. But look at the date. January 28, 2020. The focus wasn't on China, Chinese spies, or even the COVID pandemic, which was just starting to make its way into the United States. Americans were in the grips of a different kind of moral panic.This moral panic is destroying us in all ways, turning us against ourselves and making us much more vulnerable and weak to our adversaries. Russia, China, North Korea or any major enemy of the United States would no doubt have figured out that there was one surefire way to bring the most powerful country in the world to its knees: accusations of racism. The Chinese have our number. They even have a special name for it:Sooner rather than later, we'll need leadership that can't be so easily undone, that isn't given to nonstop fits of mass hysteria. We need a steady hand to guide this ship at such a dangerous time. MAGA LandAt some point in 2020, I found myself staring at my Twitter feed and had what I can only describe as blood poisoning. There was so much hate - it was in my heart, it was in my veins. I just could not live with it anymore. I decided I had to find out - was it true, were they really racists?I'd already experienced what it was like to be called a racist. When I pointed out on Twitter that not all Asian hate crimes were “white supremacy,” members of my own community targeted me as a white supremacist. It didn't matter that I'd spent at least ten years advocating for Black artists to win Oscars on my website. It made no difference. I was seen only by my identity as a white woman online. I then decided to take a trip to MAGA Land. I began following a youtube site called Right Side Broadcasting. They are Christian-based and staunchly pro-life. Each video begins with an image of a fetus in the womb. They hold weekly prayer meetings and live stream all of Trump's rallies. They usually set up early in the day and begin recording as the crowd begins to form. Hours later, the music plays - the same song introducing Trump to the crowd. … And I'm proud to be an AmericanWhere at least I know I'm freeAnd I won't forget the men who diedWho gave that right to meAnd I'd gladly stand up next to youAnd defend Her still today'Cause there ain't no doubtI love this landGod Bless the U.S.A.Then Trump finally shows. He often has a handful of red hats that he tosses out into the crowd. Trump's speeches are almost always the same. They're funny. He tells jokes, a lot of the time, at his own expense. In the old days, back in 2016, his speeches were much darker and angrier. Now, they aren't. Being banned from Twitter seems to have changed Trump for the better. This is a cautionary tale of the evils of a social media algorithm that feeds off of outrage and hysteria.You can't dip a toe in MAGA land and come away seeing it as a movement driven by racism, not if you're being honest. That tells you a lot already about what kind of media class we have in this country, that they were leading the charge for what has become shameful, systematic dehumanization of a whole group of people with no benefit of the doubt, no due process, no path to redemption. But the truth still matters, even if it's met with a tsunami of mass hysteria and moral panic. I have watched every Trump rally since he began holding them in 2020 - every single one — and not only is the MAGA movement not driven by “white rage,” but they are far more diverse and multicultural than the media or the Democrats seem to believe. And these Trump supporters I follow on TikTok:And if you want to know why so many Latinos are flipping red? So if it's not about racism, what's it about? Well, Ungar-Sargon has an idea: She has been fearless in her efforts to bridge the divide between the mass hysteria on the Left and the working class on the Right. She and Matt Taibbi, Glenn Greenwald, Megyn Kelly, Walter Kirn, and Tulsi Gabbard have maintained their objectivity, humanity, empathy, and willingness to see the bigger picture.As Matt Taibbi often points out, we seem to be missing the old-school lefties like William Kunstler, who would defend Civil Liberties at all costs. Now, only one remains—Alan Dershowitz, who has taken on the lost cause of Mike Lindell. Lindell is a hero in MAGA land and a joke to high-status folks like Jimmy Kimmel and Jon Stewart. A man whose life was nearly ruined by addiction found God and started not just a charity, but a business called My Pillow. When you see how beloved Lindell is with MAGA, much of it is to do with their shared faith, that cross that hangs around his neck. He, like Trump, gives them hope. These are people not driven by hate or rage, but by love. For people who had been shut out of every part of American culture, demonized for six long years, called the worst names imaginable, not welcomed in many places, lost friends and family, they somehow haven't lost their hope and their optimism. A lot of that has to do with Trump, believe it or not. He's one thing they haven't been able to take away from them. As enemies of the state - they have plenty of reasons to be angry. We saw some of that on January 6th. But 2020 was a year that broke people. Only one group was ever held accountable for losing it, even though Trump supporters pride themselves on being non-violent. Now, the state has managed to intimidate them to prevent them from using their Constitutional right to protest. But to take love of country away from people whose entire identity is wrapped up in patriotism seems to me an act of unimaginable cruelty. However, they still have a vote, and if they turn out in large enough numbers, they can have more of a voice in DC.MAGA voters have every reason to be mean and bitter. But you know what? It's people like Hillary Clinton, the Never Trump Republicans, and most in the media and on blue-check Twitter who have become the mean and bitter ones, abandoning basic human decency in their desire to eliminate a group of people they see as an existential threat to their otherwise pristine utopia. But, as with the Grinch Who Stole Christmas, they will soon learn that what MAGA voters care about most is not something they can't take away. I don't know what Hillary saw. My guess is that she was looking for what she wanted to see, not what was really there. If she watched a MAGA rally, really watched it, she would not see miserable people, upset that they aren't allowed into the country club, or mouth-frothing Nazis. Instead, she'd see mostly happy people, like the Whos in Whoville. That is happiness that only comes when your mind and your heart are free.So if you want to understand MAGA start there. Plenty of people gravitate to Trump for different reasons - a rebellious spirit, their religious faith, but what unites them as a movement is love of country. Nationalism is not itself fascism or even racism. James Strock's Substack focuses on the need for an invigorated new nationalism, writing:What a calling is to an individual, nationalism can be to a commonwealth. It can be a source of solidarity. It's expressed over space and time through a unifying narrative. From history it derives values and experiences that can inform our navigation of the present. These elements yield a vision for conjuring and creating a future.Our moral panic that there are racists, racists everywhere is nowhere near finished. At the very least, however, we must vote out those politicians who are primed and ready to convict people on what they think exists inside their minds and hearts. Liz Cheney and the January 6th Committee will continue Joe Biden's ignorant campaign to use racism as the justification for their authoritarian show trial, and politicization of the DOJ. History will shame them for it.Ultimately, though, the way I figure it, hate eventually exhausts itself. Love wins.

Oleksandra Vyacheslavivna Matviichuk heads the Ukrainian non-profit organization: The Center for Civil Liberties. She describes their work since the beginning of Russian aggression in 2014, the 18,000 human rights violations and atrocities documented in Ukraine so far, and their goal, together with a wide network of Ukrainian and international organizations and volunteers, of documenting every individual case in the country. She expresses a need to confront and bring to justice Russian terror inflicted deliberately on civilians to gain submission, a military tactic that they have recently used with impunity, in various countries. Matviichuk frames the war in Ukraine  as a struggle over democracy or authoritarianism, and calls for the restoration of civil society and justice, pointing out the problem of processing so many cases of human rights violations. She describes how she is seeking to establish an international tribunal of crimes against humanity to bring justice for Ukrainians and prevent future wars of terror in the region. Trigger warning: this program addresses topics of extreme violence, torture, kidnap, murder, and rape. Oleksandra Matviichuk earned her law degree from Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv and became the first woman to participate in the Ukrainian Emerging Leaders Program of Stanford University.  In 2007, Matviichuk was awarded the Vasyl Stus Prize for 'outstanding achievements, and in  2015, she became a laurate of the Norwegian 'Lindebrække prize for democracy and human rights' and in  2016, 16 delegations to the OSCE recognized Matviychuk with their first Democracy Defender Award for 'Exclusive contribution to promoting democracy and human rights'. The U.S. Embassy to Ukraine recognized Matviichuk as Ukraine's Woman of Courage 2017 for 'her constant and courageous dedication in defending rights of Ukrainian people'.

“The CDC does not have rulemaking authority delegated by Congress, yet the CDC did the eviction moratorium, the federal mask mandate … It was complete abuse. And unless there's a real change, I'm afraid this is going to happen again,” says Jenin Younes, litigation counsel for the New Civil Liberties Alliance. Younes has been leading a number of major cases against vaccine mandates and government-induced censorship on social media platforms. How much of Big Tech censorship is compelled or coerced by government actors behind the scenes—from the FBI to figures like Dr. Anthony Fauci? With the CDC making major changes to their COVID recommendations, will we see companies and universities relax their mandate and booster policies?

Joining the podcast this week is Stefan Soesanto, Senior Researcher in the Cyberdefense Project with the Risk and Resilience Team at the Center for Security Studies (CSS) at ETH Zurich. He recently authored the excellent research report “IT Army of Ukraine” that examined in detail how it was stood up out of necessity for what many have called the ‘first cyberwar'. Yet for an IT army that is neither truly military or civilian and largely operating in the grey, how do you manage a globally dispersed, largely volunteer ‘cyber army' more than 300k strong? Stefan provides insights from his extensive research – the first of its kind to provide a comprehensive analysis of the IT Army's structure, tasking and ecosystem. It's a fascinating discussion that also raises many questions on the implications ahead such as, can a cyberwar ever truly end?

  Elecia Byrd is a native Texan with a passion for helping others. A member of the firm's personal injury section in Austin, this talented litigator focuses her practice on automobile accidents, product injuries, traumatic brain injuries, premises liability, dog bites, and more. Elecia finds purpose as a personal injury lawyer, dedicating herself to helping injury victims who cannot help themselves. She takes great pride in her ability to bond with clients and enjoys not only acting as a legal counselor but also helping people with their recovery. Having dealt with very close family loss in the past, Elecia can deeply relate to clients who are suffering from catastrophic injuries or a loss of a loved one. She devotes herself to guiding her clients through their recovery, checking up on them, and making a meaningful difference in people's lives. Elecia graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. After beginning her career as a teacher in the Belton Independent School District, she decided that her true calling was to be a lawyer and eventually earned her Juris Doctorate from The University of Texas at Austin School of Law. During law school, Elecia served as Staff Editor of the Texas Journal on Civil Liberties and Civil Rights, as president of the Thurgood Marshall Legal Society, and as a member of Youth Court, helping at-risk youths from entering the school-to-prison pipeline. She also worked as a student attorney in both the Children's Rights Clinic and the Domestic Violence Clinic, where she represented clients in court under the supervision of a licensed attorney. It was this experience that solidified her desire to better the lives of individuals through her advocacy skills. Elecia has benefited her industry as a member of the Capital Area Trial Lawyers Association, the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, the Texas Young Lawyers Association, the American Association for Justice, and the Austin Black Lawyers Association. In her free time, Elecia enjoys exploring Austin's various food and music festivals, spending time with her family and her church group, and volunteering once a week with Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid to provide pro bono legal services to those in need. She is also an avid football fan – Go Texans! Go Longhorns!   About Emily: https://www.whistlerpartners.com/team/emily-witt Edited and Produced by Mark McDonald.
