Kannst du in Gold aufwiegen, wieviel du dir selbst wert bist und warum  bringt mich der Satz "So bin ich eben!"

Just when you're convinced the world is a dark place with an uncertain future, along comes Hannah Alper. It's not that Hannah's a foolish optimist. She is, as Gloria Steinem calls it, a “hopeaholic”. Hannah has been an activist for social and environmental change since she was 9 years old - and that wasn't that long ago! She's a motivational speaker, a blogger, an author and budding journalist. She's also a second year university student, and yes, she assures us that she's also hanging out and having fun. Just listening to her puts a smile on our face. Come be inspired. The kids are alright.  Hannah Alper was born in Toronto in this century. In July 2012, at the age of 9, Alper launched a blog called Call Me Hannah, speaking out about causes important to her: animal welfare, habitat destruction, and the natural environment. With a social media following in the tens of thousands, Hannah has emerged as an author, a motivational speaker, an ambassador for Free the Children, co-president of the B'nai B'rith Youth Organization in Ontario, a TedX talker, and a budding journalist. In 2018, Bloomberg Businessweek named her one of 18 people to watch, so watch her! She's also a student at Western University, where she assures us she's having as much fun as she should.

Slavery and its lingering remnants remain a plague on the United States, continuing to foster animosity between races that hinders the understanding and connection conducive to dismantling the remains of such systems. Personal relationships and connection can provide a path towards reconciling differences and overcoming the racial divisiveness that is America's original sin.  In his fascinating new book, Stars and Shadows: The Politics of Interracial Friendship from Jefferson to Obama (Oxford UP, 2022), Saladin Ambar, professor of Political Science and Senior Scholar at the Center on the American Governor at the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, constructs a comprehensive overview of interracial friendships throughout U.S. history, detailing how friendship can be an invaluable and often overlooked tool when advocating for equality. Because political leaders, celebrities, and other cultural figures have such an influence on the general public, they can play a particular role in shaping public opinion. Thus, analyzing significant interracial friendships between well-known individuals throughout different historical moments can serve as windows into the state of race relations as they developed through time, and what that can mean for our future. Ambar meditates on the power of friendship in general, and interracial friendship in particular, through ten different, iconic cases, examining these relationships in both their personal and political capacity. The specific focus of each friendship duet is to explore the public consequences of relationships across race. Each duo has unique experiences that are particular to their historical moments and the political constraints of the time. Through these stories, Ambar develops a theory rejecting the notion that we must separate the personal from the political, detailing how, in an interracial democracy predicated on equality, the two must and do intertwine in order to overcome racial differences. Stars and Shadows examines, among others, Benjamin Banneker and Thomas Jefferson, Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln, Angela Davis and Gloria Steinem, Marlon Brando and James Baldwin, and ends with Barack Obama and Joe Biden's iconic bond. The analysis wrestles with the American political structure, which is not based on connecting individuals to each other in any kind of personal way, and yet friendship is what connects us all as human beings. Ambar's theory challenges citizens to look inward and outward when interacting with one another, to engage intentionally with our differences, and not to run away from our past but to critically analyze it and incorporate it going forward. Emma R. Handschke assisted in the production of this podcast. Lilly J. Goren is a professor of political science at Carroll University in Waukesha, WI.

Introduction: Minutes 0 to 6:45 We were off for five weeks because I moved. We'll have episodes out for the next two weeks and will be off on August 20th. Chandra watched Severance and loved it. We have a spoiler free talk about that. Royals: Minutes 6:45 to 22:30 Last week, the Sussexes went to New York because Harry was invited by the Mandela Foundation to give a speech at the UN for Mandela day. The Archewell Foundation is working on a project with the Mandela Foundation. There were stupid articles from Salt Island questioning whether Harry was qualified to give a speech despite his being invited and knowing the Mandela family. He was also accused of copying his speech from William. We were surprised at how exclusive the photos of Harry and Meghan in New York were. The Sussexes went to lunch with Gloria Steinem and then had dinner that night with a group where they were served sheep's milk ricotta, steak tartare and ravioli. Chandra covered that story because she likes talking about food and looking up menus. Chandra's opinions about food are controversial. She hates all cheese.  A new royal biography came out by Tom Bower called Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors. It was released on July 21st and is longer available directly from Amazon or Barnes and Noble. It's filled with slight variations of garbage stories about Meghan we've heard before. Bower reminds Chandra of Lady Colin Campbell in that sources seem to be the white Markles and anti-Sussex trolls. My favorite story was about how Meghan told Harry's friends at a hunting party not to make misogynistic and transphobic jokes, like it was a bad thing she was calling them out! Bower tried to claim that Meghan was hysterical in 2017 about the Vanity Fair cover calling her “Wild about Harry” because the palace was mad about the headline, even though they seemingly authorized her interview. That was disputed by the journalist, Sam Kashner, who said he admired and respected Meghan and found her warm, gracious and intelligent. There was also a retelling of the “Meghan made Kate cry” at the bridesmaids' fitting story. Like many pro-Windsor books, Revenge ended up making the other royals look bad, especially Camilla. Bower wrote that Duchess Camilla “joked” in 2017 that Meghan and Harry's children would have “ginger afros.” Now we know why Charles worries about William trashing Camilla in his biography. In response Page Six reported that Camilla “is not the senior royal who made the alleged racist comments” about the Sussexes' children. Omid Scobie reported that the manuscript for Harry's memoir has been written and has passed legal checks. We don't think it will be dishy or a tell all. Scobie's latest column is about Prince William, and how he wants his work to have a global impact. The most interesting royal story this week was that Kate's sister Pippa named her third child, a daughter, Rose! Prince William's alleged mistress is of course named Rose Hanbury so this was shady. Pippa recently got her masters degree in physical education with a priority on early years and she and James moved into a larger estate. Pippa is a more credible early years expert than Kate. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez: Minutes 22:30 to 28:30 Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck eloped in Las Vegas at The Little White Chapel on July 17th. Emme and Seraphina were the only children there and we heard that it was spur of the moment. Chandra predicted that J.Lo and Ben would celebrate by going on a birthday trip, and they did, they went to Paris with with Jennifer's 14-year-old twins, Max and Emme, and Ben's daughters, Violet, 16, and Seraphina, 13. Chandra likes their whole vibe and it looked like the kids were having a great time. Jennifer changed her clothes so much and we got so many photos. Chandra likes how they're acting like rich tourists. Comments of the Week: Minutes 28:30 to end Chandra's comment of the week is from NYC212 on the post about Prince William trying to negate his mother's Panorama interview. I had two runner ups for comment of the week from Chubcucumber and Dr Mrs The Monarch on the post where Gwyneth Paltrow said she had to work twice as hard because of nepotism. My comment of the week is from Joan on the post about Gwyneth Paltrow being grateful to be 50. Thanks for listening bitches!

Shadow Warrior by Rajeev Srinivasan
Ep. 76: Does Roe v Wade foreshadow the end of the American Dream?

Shadow Warrior by Rajeev Srinivasan

A version of this essay was published by Swarajya magazine at https://swarajyamag.com/world/does-roe-v-wade-foreshadow-the-end-of-the-american-dreamThere are only two US Supreme Court judgments deemed epoch-making enough to be called ‘landmark’ every time they are mentioned. One is Roe v Wade, and the other is Brown v Board of Education. Both favorite liberal causes, one about abortion and therefore about womens’ rights; the second about ending systemic black segregation in education, which had a signal impact on the rest of their Civil Rights movement. On the face of it, both were unexceptionably positive. Roe surely reduced the number of young women bleeding to death when some backstreet quack terminated their pregnancies with a coat-hanger. Brown made it possible to end the ‘separate-but-equal’ idea of racial segregation. When the SCOTUS overturned Roe v Wade recently, that was another landmark. There are legitimate questions as to whether things have regressed badly in the US: the worry is that whatever women have managed to achieve over a century, in what is frankly a conservative Abrahamic patriarchy, is suddenly in jeopardy. Is the US going back to Stepford Wives and suffragettes struggling for the vote?It is also true that despite decades of protests and hard work, and Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem, the American woman still has miles to go. Despite the Pill and the sexual revolution and equal rights, I believe the average woman gets paid only about 70-80% of what an average man gets paid for the same job: not very different from the Biblical worth of 30 shekels to a man’s 50. Vast numbers of women struggle in single-parent households. Curiously, American women, despite failure. bravely export their feminism. This is a sort of recursive feudalism, where white men and white countries treat white women and non-white (‘Third World’) countries as lower castes they are entitled to dominate. And the white women market their nostrums to Third World women as the ‘White Woman’s Burden’. An entire cottage industry of grifters and true believers is now offering these panaceas to India.. What is bizarre is that Professor S N Balagangadhara in “What Does It Mean to be an Indian?” pointed out that this is all old hat for Indians. India has been suffering from a surfeit of identity politics for half a century and the results are not pretty.This stuff is not going to end well for the US. But it’s also true that their framing of issues elsewhere is laughable: and here’s a sarcastic take on the kind of breathless negativity the US media applies to other countries. The US Supreme Court is providing a backlash to an excessive move to the Left by the entire political class. That is a benign interpretation. There is a more malign interpretation of a wholesale retrogression by the Court (and some politicians) that will take the US back to some benighted era of racism, bigotry and unabashed patriarchy. The fact is that the SCOTUS has in quick succession issued several significant rulings: Roe, then it refused to curtail gun rights, and most recently, it ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency cannot regulate greenhouse-gas emissions that cause climate change. In a single week, it has hit three of the Left’s hot buttons: abortion, guns, and climate change.This may suggest a sharp ideological shift engendered by ex-POTUS Trump “packing the court”. In that case, given SCOTUS judges don’t retire until they die or quit, the Left is in for a long dry spell. Which is a good thing. They have driven the average US voter to distraction with their gender antics, climate fanaticism, law and order craziness, victimhood narratives, fiscal imprudence, and tendency to go to war on what appears to be a whim.Therefore, if it is a useful corrective to deranged Left certainties, it should be welcomed. On the other hand, some observers, including Indians living in the US, have painted a darker picture of regression to some mythical golden past, which would have been golden mostly for white males. I defer to Indian-Americans on this as they live it, and two of them I follow had warnings for all of us. The first, a finance man, wondered if the US will revert to a point where immigrants, especially non-whites, would not be welcome. It reminded me of the 1900-era decisions that a) offered citizenship only to ‘Caucasians’ to exclude Chinese, and b) when some Indians got naturalized on the basis of being ‘Caucasians’, they amended the rule to restrict it to ‘white Caucasians’, thereafter revoking their citizenship.The second, a journalist, painted a picture where the coastal ‘liberals’ were being overwhelmed by rural, white, working-class voters (he didn’t call them that, but he did mean ‘rednecks’). Both are voicing a concern that cannot be ignored. There were, for example, the shooting deaths of two Indian-Americans in their new SUVs just this week: 25 year old Nakka Sai Charan on a freeway in Baltimore on June 22nd, and 31 year old Satnam Singh, in Queens, New York on June 28th. I also remember a spate of shootings of Telugu-speakers in the US a few years ago.An America that reverts to its undeniably brutal and racist past would be extremely unfortunate. Its soft power will diminish, and its standing in the world will diminish as a result. Its institutions, including the SCOTUS, have been held up as role-models all over the world. They all seem to be under attack: e.g., the SCOTUS, once held in breathless reverence, is now being berated by many Americans on the Left.The Federal Reserve is another. I remember times when its chairmen like Paul Volcker and Alan Greenspan were spoken of in hushed tones, and their every utterance was pored over as though they were magic incantations that had the power to move markets. Many observers treated them as though they were as inscrutable as the Kremlin or the Forbidden City in Beijing.Greenspan’s reputation was ruined after the 2008 crash; and now, along with POTUS Biden, the hapless Jerome Powell, and his immediate predecessors are all being criticized for having failed to anticipate or prevent roaring inflation, and it is feared, an imminent Recession. The NIH, FDA and other medical bureaucracies also suffered loss of face as the result of the Wuhan virus. Francis Collins and especially Anthony Fauci were accused of gross irregularities including being on the payroll of Big Pharma, and of secretly funding biowarfare research (‘gain of function’) in Wuhan. Like The Lancet and the NEJM, they too suffered loss of credibility.If one were to extrapolate from all this, it seems like a fin-de-siecle malaise is afflicting all of America. Is it really the end of the American Century, despite its extraordinary endowment, with all the resources of a vast continent, and its human resources constantly renewed by the best and brightest from around the world? As someone who loves the US, I hope this isn’t so. I hope this is a passing phase brought on by bad politics and the military-industrial complex. I really hope this is not the end of the American Dream. 1173 words, 30 June 2022 This is a public episode.

Naomi Wolf is one of my favourite feminists and runs the Daily Clout.   Naomi Rebekah Wolf is an American feminist author and journalist. Following her first book The Beauty Myth, she became a leading spokeswoman of what has been described as the third wave of the feminist movement. Feminists including Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan praised her work. Others, including Camille Paglia, criticized it. In the 1990s, she was a political advisor to the presidential campaigns of Bill Clinton and Al Gore. Wolf's later books include the bestseller The End of America in 2007 and Vagina: A New Biography.   I am generally antagonistic towards (modern) feminism because it often appears to be a celebration of victimhood culture and a deliberate attack on family values and men. Having watched Cassie Jaye's documentary, The Red Pill, I was left feeling disgusted at the excessive hatred being vomited by feminists who were interviewed. Naomi, however, is nowhere near any of that misandrist nonsense. She shoots guns; she opposes abortion; she rejects state tyranny; she is heavily censored; and she likes men. Brilliant.

(RE-RELEASE) How do you write a trailblazing woman back into history after her iconic colleagues wrote her out? Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner--founder and executive director of the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation and Center for Social Justice Dialogue; a founder of one the first college-level women's studies programs in the United States; and author of The Women's Suffrage Movement and Sisters in Spirit--introduces Eve and Julie to Matilda Joslyn Gage, the should-be household name of the suffrage movement whom Gloria Steinem called “the woman who was ahead of the women who were ahead of their time.” Sally has dedicated her life's work to restoring Gage to her rightful place in history. In this episode, Sally, Eve, and Julie explore how power dynamics (in politics, in social changes movements) followed a familiar playbook in the 19th century; how Indigenous women modeled an egalitarian society for 19th century feminists; why L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz was a gender-bending, revolutionary text ahead of its time, in no small part because of Matilda Gage; and how Susan B.

Since 2020, after the protests and the riots erupted on the streets of major cities, causing over one billion dollars in damages, implied threats have become the norm on the Left. Windows are boarded up in anticipation of more. During the Derek Chauvin trial, the crowd outside, including some politicians, openly threatened violent riots should he be found not guilty. Random beatings go unnoticed on the streets because they only play on Right-wing channels. Like my friends on the Left, I mourn the overturning of Roe v. Wade because I think it will drive a deeper wedge between the two Americas. To the Left, a fundamental right has been taken away. To the Right, a fundamental right has been granted.I keep hoping for some kind of unity. But now, the ongoing hatred by each side against the other is likely to only get much worse. The division is going to take the shape of red states and blue states, or as future generations will know them, abortion states and illegal abortion states.There was a moment between the unprecedented leak of the Dobbs decision and the final decision. Some justices might have been persuaded not to overturn a 50-year precedent. Some had suggested the leak was intentional for that reason. You'd think, given that, there might be some civility on offer for the Trump appointees. You know, the whole “you attract more flies with honey than vinegar” approach. But if you thought that, you'd be wrong. The Left, the Democrats, and the media did the opposite. They never let up. They seemed okay with using high-pressure tactics on justices who have been taking all manner of incoming for several years now. They stalked and harassed the SCOTUS justices in their homes. A group called Jane's Revenge torched pro-life centers and vandalized property, sending the message “if abortions aren't safe then you aren't either.” And a would-be assassin showed up at the home of Justice Kavanaugh and threatened his life before calling 911 and turning himself in.Was there blanket media coverage by any outlets other than Fox? Of course not. What were they focused on? The January 6th show trial. Did the protesters stop marching outside their homes? No. The idea was that the justices deserve everything they had coming. For several years now, Justices Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, Barrett, and Thomas have been casually, routinely bullied in the press, harassed, and all but crucified by the Left on a daily basis. Because of their hatred of Trump, they have normalized dehumanization against his supporters, and his appointees. Whatever they think of Trump, however angry they feel about Mitch McConnell blocking Merrick Garland's appointment but going along with Trump's, treating Supreme Court Justices this way undermines their claim to care about “Democracy Itself.” Chuck Schumer had all but threatened violence against Kavanaugh and Gorsuch way back in 2020, though he downplayed it:Justice Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing alone was unlike anything we've ever seen. We don't have a press that would ever cover it that way, not amid the Me Too movement, but banging on the door of the Supreme Court, disrupting the confirmation hearing, screaming at Senators in hallways - was the exact kind of invasive activism that is endangering not just the Left itself, but the country at the hands of the Left. Kavanaugh was convicted without due process in the court of public opinion, smeared as a rapist. His family had to absorb all of it. Everyone Kavanaugh knew throughout his whole life now looked at him that way. The idea was to make him as weak of a Justice as possible, the Clarence Thomas treatment, so that the public would sour on the Court over time. There was never one moment where the Left backed off of any of it. When Amy Coney Barrett was being confirmed, she was labeled a racist (even though she has adopted Black children — even that was condemned), the media said she belonged to a religious cult and was called Lydia from the Handmaid's Tale.Clarence Thomas has been hated by the Left since his confirmation, but only recently has it intensified, as Twitter blue-checks and the media suggest he should be impeached because of his wife's thought-crimes on the election. They dress it up like “news” but it's more of the same - mass hysteria, Trump obsession, the bottom dropping out. The treatment of Krysten Sinema in particular has been disturbing. Activists find her in airports, follow her into bathrooms, and even disrupted a wedding. The bullying and harassment on Twitter help to dehumanize her to the point where they don't see a problem with stalking her in real life. All because she won't agree to go along with the party-line. They don't seem to realize that the way it works in America is that we elect people. We don't throw massive fits to intimidate them to go along with what we want. The new Left doesn't see it that way. They believe fits of hysteria and dehumanization are the right course of action. It just makes them less reliable as leaders. We need calm heads and steady hands, not the political equivalent of the children in Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.I never understood why activists thought all of this was the right course of action. I always figured it would only make things worse because outside the media bubble and social media feedback loop, most people are horrified when it crosses the line, as it often does. Our country is in the middle of a Cold Civil War. There is no doubt about that. Unfortunately, we have a media that seems to profit off of it, not to mention social media that does better with a divided country than a united one. Every day, each side is hammered with negative stories about the other, driving hatred and rage, not to mention dehumanization. If you only read news from one side, you will never understand the other side's position. Navigating between both worlds it's easier to see where media manipulation drives outrage. The Democrats and the Left can't mount a proper offense against Donald Trump because they are fighting a cartoon version that doesn't exist in real life. That, I think, more than anything explains their ongoing sense of helplessness. If you watch a Trump rally, you won't see desperation, panic, rage or outrage. Trump is easy-going, confident and funny. Yesterday's rally in Illinois, for instance, he joked about a potential candidate for governor plucking a hair off of his head. “We're still looking for that hair,” he said. The only thing the media pulled from that entire rally was when one of his endorsed candidates, Mary Miller, accidentally said: “thank you for saving white—right to life.” Because of that, “Nazis in Illinois” trended all day on Twitter. They genuinely believe that this will help them win elections. It just makes people hate them, more and more every day.Trump's side is using the “radical Left” to draw support from the middle. And guess what? It's working. The Left is radical. They live up to that label every single day. Democrats are not doing anything to draw supporters to their side because they are driven to extreme outrage over almost everything. It lasts a couple of days until a new one replaces it. They don't seem able to get a grip.They also seem to continually justify this brand of invasive activism, which scares ordinary Americans and has since it burst onto the scene in 2020.The Democrats and the Left have called parents worried about their children being indoctrinated into the Left's new religion, “Domestic Terrorists.” They went along with gaslighting Americans all through the Summer of 2020 when so many small businesses were destroyed, many with no insurance to rebuild, many of them minority-owned. At the time, it was like so many stories on the Left, a taboo subject. Michael Tracey was one of the few brave enough to wade into those waters.The national media might have “moved on” from the riots in Minneapolis, but residents have nowhere to go. Much of the Twin Cities is still in ruins. Boarded-up storefronts still display makeshift notices that read “black owned” or “minority owned” to ward off further destruction. Many locals are reluctant to speak on the record, but some are eager to do so.“It's been agony,” says Mohamed Ali, a native of Somalia. “I respect the public anger, but I think we carried it too far, to burn our city.” At the height of the chaos, rioters set a large fire in front of his apartment, which sits atop several streetside shops. He spray-painted desperate appeals onto plywood affixed to the storefront windows: “Don't burn please . . . Kids live upstairs.”While the overturning of Roe v. Wade has spurred some into action, they still have their ongoing problem with the language of inclusivity and what issues they are prioritizing. How can they, for instance, fight for women's rights when they aren't fighting for women's rights in sports? I saw one sign that said “Abortion is a human right.” But it isn't. It WAS a right to terminate a pregnancy granted to a woman at a time when women were forced to endanger their own lives to have an illegal abortion. This was done both for economic reasons, and, as with Gloria Steinem, so a woman's entire life wasn't derailed by an unwanted pregnancy.It is not, nor has it ever been, a HUMAN RIGHT. Life is a human right. Terminating life is not. It is a controversial procedure that we will be debating for the next 100 years. I don't think abortion should be illegal in this or any other country. I grew up in the post-Roe 1980s and I know how casually my generation and subsequent generations used abortion as a form of birth control. I also know what it feels to regret having had an abortion and how you live with that sorrow your entire life. It is just never discussed much on the Left.I think this is a good time to have a longer and deeper conversation about abortion since this isn't 1972. We have advanced forms of birth control, like the IUD and patches. We have apps that track your menstrual cycle. Abortions are down significantly since the era when I came of age. That should be another conversation we have. Pew research says:Things are changing. The world is changing. The predictions for future populations are starting to become worrisome. That doesn't mean women should be forced to have unwanted pregnancies, but it is something that should be widely discussed. Who knows where these stats might go.Fertility rates are down across the board. The Census announced that in 2021, US percentage change in population was its lowest since its founding. Male sperm count is declining. Generation-Z is having less sex, and many millennials have said they aren't interested in having children at all. More women are choosing to have kids later, which means it's more difficult to even get pregnant. Elon Musk has said there aren't enough people and that civilization will collapse if people don't start having more. Even if you are fine with that grim prediction, those who determine the future are going to be those who have the most babies. It's simple math.The best plan for the Left is to use the overturning of Roe to mobilize voters ahead of the midterms, with the idea that if they can flip two Senate seats and regain a majority, they can codify the right to abortion into law. It doesn't seem that hard. But the Left in its current state, lurching from outrage to outrage, using increasingly invasive intimidation practices, not to mention the New Woke Order, and the crashing economy, still has their work cut out for them.

But no one is truly perfect. Kate doesn't seem to care much about personal boundaries and can occasionally seem overly-familiar with Jake. But Marisa doesn't let it concern her, knowing that soon Kate will be gone, and it will just be her, Jake, and their future baby.Conceiving a baby is easier said than done, though, and Jake and Marisa's relationship is put to the test through months of fertility treatments and false starts. To make matters worse, Kate's boundary-pushing turns into an all-out obsession—with Jake, with Marisa, and with their future child.

In this preview, Sam talks with author Margaret Atwood about her new essay collection, Burning Questions, the lasting impact of The Handmaid's Tale, her role in the debate around ‘the writer as political agent', and the power of poetry.
