Econtalk Podcast Notes Key Takeaways According to René Girard, there are two types of desire: physical and metaphysical Physical desire is a desire for physical utility – that is, what the object can provide us in and of itselfMetaphysical desire is a desire for identity – that is, what the objects say about usGirard believes that humans desire persistence (wanting our names to last), power, and social reality (recognition, fame, and to be lauded by the social groups we're in)Girard believes we fulfill these fundamental desires by making associations with objects by choosing models whom we already think have this heightened beingGirard thinks our fundamental desires – our moral paradigms – are anchored to these models and their associated objects and valuesGirard argues that the strength of your desire can't indicate its authenticity and whether it's truly yours or not Girard sees metaphysical desire as the original sin; it is the drive to rival God and his metaphysical splendor Johnathan believes there are two solutions to metaphysical desires: Identify that the metaphysical desire is completely perverse and not seek itAlign your physical and metaphysical desiresThere is also a negative component to mimesis: the desire to be distant from objects associated with having a deficiency of beingOur sense of being is fundamentally shaped and determined by the cultures we're in and the models we're exposed to Machiavelli saw people as fundamentally egocentric, and that social participation was not the end, but the instrumental means to satisfy appetite and self-preservationWe come to view our social aspect as a way to serve our appetite; we've become reduced to these utility-maximizing creatures without consideration of spirit at all Once our core human ends are satisfied, most economic decision-making comes from the social dimension that is difficult to model with mathematics Read the full notes @ podcastnotes.orgWhen the 20-year-old overachiever Johnathan Bi's first startup crashed and burned, he headed to a Zen retreat in the Catskills to "debug himself." He discovered René Girard and his mimetic theory--the idea that imitation is a key and often unconscious driver of human behavior. Listen as entrepreneur and philosopher Bi shares with EconTalk host Russ Roberts what he learned from Girard and Girard's insights into how we meet our primal need for money, fame, and power. The conversation includes the contrasts between economics and Girard's perspective.

Brasilien hat gewählt. Einen neuen Präsidenten gibt es aber, entgegen aller Hoffnungen, noch nicht. Am Ende war die Wahl zwischen dem Amtierenden Jair Bolsonaro und seinem Herausforderer Lula Da Silva knapper, als erwartet. Es liegen viele Hoffnungen auf Lula, nicht nur weil Bolsonaro das Land die letzten vier Jahre mit seiner katastrophalen, militanten, rechtsradikalen Politik ins Chaos gestürzt hatte, sondern auch, weil sich die Musikszene und insbesondere der HipHop geschlossen hinter Lula stellte. Beide Kandidaten hatten ihren eigenen Song zum Wahlkampf. Nur war es bei Lula eine Hymne und bei Bolsonaro eine 13-minütige Abrechnung. Brasilianischer Rap nimmt eh kein Blatt vor den Mund, wenn es darum geht, mit den Problemen des Landes abzurechnen. Ganz vorne mit dabei ist der große Rap-Star des Landes: Emicida. Der Sao Paulaner verschaffte sich zu Beginn seiner Karriere Respekt im Battlerap. An den Straßenecken der Megametropole battlete er seine Gegner lyrisch in Grund und Boden. Heute hat er einen neuen Gegner: Die Politik, die Mächtigen, die Ungerechtigkeit in Brasilien. Emicida steht damit in einer langen Tradition von Protest-Musik in Brasilien. Schon in den 60er und 70er Jahren lehnte sich "Tropicalia" auf gegen die Militärdiktatur und leistete einen entscheidenden Beitrag zur Revolution. Ob es die in kleinem Maße zumindest nun auch wieder gibt, zeigt sich in vier Wochen. Da gehen Lula und Bolsonaro erneut in die Stichwahl.

The problem is, she's married. She's married to a wealthy old man who can't get her pregnant and they need a son to maintain their political position. Callimaco shows up, disguised as a doctor, and convinces her husband to give her a mandrake potion to increase her fertility. The problem is, Callimaco tells the old man, the first man who sleeps with her after she takes the potion will die. They decide to find an unwitting dupe to have sex with her.

COSMO Machiavelli - Rap und Politik

Es ist ein bisschen paradox, denn zum einen ist die wichtigste Regel bei Körpern: Nicht kommentieren. Zum anderen müssen wir aber unbedingt mal über Körper reden. Darüber, warum es so wichtig für unser Leben, unsere Karriere und sogar unser Glück ist, wie wir geboren wurden und gebaut sind. Und wie wir es vielleicht schaffen, uns davon zu lösen. Ein politischer Prozess, denn Körper sind politisch - in der Musik und in der Gesellschaft. Body Positivity, Fat-Shaming, Fetischisierung, Fitness-Bros, Alpha-Männer, Beatuy-OPs, Körper mit Behinderungen, Frauenhass und Rassismus - beim Thema Körper kommt einiges zusammen. Da Vassili gerade in der Ukraine ist, hat sich Jan für diese Folge absolut ebenbürtige Unterstützung an die Seite geholt: Die Wiener Rapperin KeKe ist als Co-Host in dieser Folge dabei. Sie hat gerade den Song “Thick” veröffentlicht, in dem sie rappt: “My body ain't a trend, das ist meine Existenz.” Denn wie wir uns in unseren Körpern fühlen und wie wir die Körper anderer sehen, ist von Schönheitsidealen und Trends geprägt. Und das ist ein Problem. Auch mit dem Rapper Disarstar haben wir über Körperbilder im Rap gesprochen und darüber, was Fitness damit zu tun hat. Natalie Rosenke hat uns erklärt, warum so viele Körper unter Diskriminierung leiden. Sie kämpft als Vorsitzende der Gesellschaft gegen Gewichtsdiskriminierung auf politischer Ebene dafür, dass alle Körper akzeptiert werden. Denn das sollte unser Ziel sein. Also mehr über Körper reden, weniger kommentieren. Mehr Infos zum Podcast: www.wdr.de/k/machiavelli Von Louis Huselstein.

In this wide-ranging conversation with Jackie Summers, creator of Sorel, some of the topics we discuss include: How Jackie has led a life of continuous transformation on his way to creating Sorel: battling a spinal tumor, leaving a successful corporate career, and becoming America's first black distiller since Prohibition. The intriguing wellness and flavor properties of hibiscus, which has more vitamin C than most citrus fruit, but that can be problematic as a single-note flavor. Why it took hundreds of test batches and experiments to perfect this product, which comes to us as the result of centuries of stolen bodies, stolen spices, and a resilient oral tradition that sings at the genetic level. The difference between “Sorrel,” the drink and “Sorel” the brand, by way of some apt wisdom from Jackie's childhood speech coach. Along the way, we cover the terroir of North African Hibiscus, why liquor years are like dog years, what to drink with the philosopher who went toe-to-toe with Machiavelli, and much, much more.

In light of yet another disgusting abuse of force by The Democrat Regime that will see Steve Bannon indicted for criminal charges in New York—despite already receiving a pardon from President Trump over this exact issue—Charlie dives in to the underpinnings of what drives the radical left and questions why the conservative movement has continually failed to play ball against these vengeful apparatchiks. He walks through Machiavelli, Alinksy, and the political thought that inspires their campaign of war against dissident voices like Bannon, Trump, Flynn, to name just a few, and explains that if we fail to respond in-kind, as a collective movement, The Regime will come for all of us soon. Next, Nigel Farage joins the program to discuss the election of a new Prime Minister in the United Kingdom and what that means for us as well as our greatest ally across the pond. They also walk through the inner-workings of Britain's Deep State, the European energy crisis being fueled by the ongoing war with Russia, what it will take to get the Western World back on the right track, and ultimately why we must act with urgency to save civilization from ruin before its too late. Support the show: http://www.charliekirk.com/supportSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Was bedeutet uns Mode? Was ziehen wir an und wieso tragen wir die Kleidung, die wir tragen? Wann hat unsere Begeisterung für Mode begonnen, welchen teuren Turnschuh haben wir uns als Kind immer gewünscht und welche Rolle spielt Mode in unserem Alltag? Unsere Gesprächspartner:innen müssten eigentlich einen gemeinsamen Mode-Podcast starten: Rapper RIN und Mode-Designerin Martina Tiefenthaler. RIN hat Deutschrap locker gemacht. Weg von Regeln irgendwelcher eingestaubter, alter Schulen. Ein Pionier, aufgewachsen und zuhause in Bietigheim-Bissingen, bei Stuttgart. Klingt nach schwäbischem Hinterland, hat aber eine mystisch hohe Dichte an erfolgreichen Musikern. Bausa und Shindy sind auch von dort, ebenso Hartmut Engler von PUR. In RINs Texten tauchen Claude Monet und Chief Keef auf, Fabergé und Vice City - und vor allem viel Mode: Supreme, Jean-Paul-Gaultier, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Dior und zum Glück auch Vetements. Martina Tiefenthaler hat Vetements mitgegründet und ist das zweite Gehirn und der verlängerte Arm ihres Kreativ-Partners Demna. Gemeinsam sind sie inzwischen für eins der wichtigsten Modelabel der vergangenen Dekade verantwortlich: Balenciaga. Dieses Label ist aufsehenerregend, manche finden es provozierend. Es gibt Kollaborationen mit den Simpsons, mit dem Videospiel Fortnite und mit der Ukraine. Jahresumsatz: eine Milliarde. Es ist das Lieblingslabel von Rappern wie Kanye West oder Ufo361. Gemeinsam begeben wir uns in das mystische Raumschiff der Mode-Welt. Martina erzählt, wie sie mit Balenciaga die Welt verändern will und warum der Kapitalismus sie daran hindert. Für RIN stand Mode immer auch in Verbindung mit Zugehörigkeit. Heute zeigt er sich nachdenklich, will ein besseres Vorbild sein und verspricht in seinen Texten weniger Hedonismus und mehr Inhalt. Für diese Podcast-Folge gibt es keinen Dresscode, aber sie ist très chique. // Shownotes zur Folge: www.wdr.de/k/machiavelli Von Machiavelli.

Staying authentic and making an impact are the key attributes of a successful leader in today's world. In today's episode, Mario Bekes and Heather Osgood share their favorite leaders and why they admire them. Leadership is changing, and we need to think differently in order to succeed in this new world. There are those who may not be as comfortable with how things are changing, those who are adaptable and have a good sense of communication, and finally, there is a new group of leaders who are setting the narrative and willing to step up and become leaders themselves. Who will you be? Tune in! In this episode: Mario Bekes discusses why Sun Tzu and Niccolò Machiavelli are his favorite leaders and their influence on history. Leadership is different when you are sitting behind a desk and are protected by obstacles. Leaders must understand their local market in order to make strategic decisions. Heather Osgood shares why she admires the leadership of Sara Blakely, the CEO of Spanx, and how she is an authentic leader who is always looking to learn and grow. The way leadership is changing has led to a more fragmented world, which makes it easier for smaller businesses to compete with larger corporations.  Key Takeaways: The information you share may impact generations to come The flow of information will change leadership - it is inevitable A display of leadership is using one's time wisely to deliver on goals The desire to give back to people is admirable as a leader Dream a bigger dream and do not feel small and limited Leaders have different reactions to the changing environment Tweetable Quotes: “Last two years, I saw how COVID-19 amplified people's behaviors in a good or bad way. Leadership is different when you're sitting behind a desk, being protected by the many obstacles… Leaders do the decision-making for everybody in the corporation… That's a display of leadership.” - Mario Bekes “We have become so fragmented… The way we approach things is so much different… There is so much more opportunity now.” - Heather Osgood Reach out to Denis: Email: denis@leadingchangepartners.com Website: http://www.leadingchangepartners.com/ (http://www.leadingchangepartners.com/)  Leadership Is Changing Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/LeadershipIsChanging/ (https://www.facebook.com/groups/LeadershipIsChanging/) Leadership is Changing LinkedIn Page: https://www.linkedin.com/company/leadership-is-changing-podcast/ (https://www.linkedin.com/company/leadership-is-changing-podcast/)

What Role Should Congress Have in Foreign Affairs? (with Alissa Ardito)

The topic of this episode is, “What role should Congress have in foreign affairs?” My guest is Alissa Ardito, the author of the book Machiavelli and the Modern State: The Prince, the Discourses on Livy, and the Extended Territorial Republic (Cambridge University Press, 2015). She has had a rich and varied career in governance, and she has thought deeply about legislatures and policymaking. Dr. Ardito has served as a general counsel at the Congressional Budget Office, and as an attorney advisor with the Administrative Conference of the United States. She received a Ph.D. in political science from Yale University, a J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law, and a B.A. from the University of Virginia—all of which makes her wise in the ways of statecraft. Kevin Kosar: Welcome to Understanding Congress, a podcast about the first branch of government. Congress is a notoriously complex institution, and few Americans think well of it, but Congress is essential to our republic. It's a place where our pluralistic society is supposed to work out its differences and come to agreement about what our laws should be. And that is why we are here: to discuss our national legislature and to think about ways to upgrade it so it can better serve our nation. I'm your host, Kevin Kosar, and I'm a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, a think tank in Washington, DC. Welcome to the podcast. Alissa Ardito: Thank you, Kevin. It's great to be here. Kevin Kosar: Let's start our inquiry with the Constitution, the foundation for our system of national self-governance. What constitutional powers does Congress have over foreign affairs? Alissa Ardito: Well, actually, if you look at the text of the Constitution, Congress has quite a lot of power over foreign affairs. The issue is that they are littered in various different parts of Section 8 and Section 10 of Article 1. I'll just mention a few. Actually, the first is Clause 1 of Section [8], tax and spend—the “Power To lay and collect Taxes…pay the Debts, and provide for the common Defence.” Congress also has the power to regulate commerce with foreign nations; establish uniform rule of naturalization; define and punish piracies on the high seas; the great war power of Section 8, Clause 11, “To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water.” And then it even moves in, arguably, to everything about raise and support armies, provide and maintain a navy, regulate and call forth the militia. And then you get into—I think [it's] fascinating—I would argue that Section 9, Clause 7, “No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law,” also constitutes a foreign affairs power. Then you get into all the limitations in Section 10 on states. The real concern was at the time of the Framing that they were exercising foreign relations independently. And then you can even move into Article 2 and the powers in the Senate, the treaty power and advise and consent on nominations as well. So, taken together, that's actually a pretty robust set of powers. Kevin Kosar: Yes, and these powers were, as you alluded to, scraped away from executive authority and scraped away from state authority and centered in the first branch: Congress. Now, Congress's authorities, we should probably also mention, go beyond those explicitly enumerated in the Constitution. Obviously there are a whole number of statutes that assign powers to Congress over foreign affairs, such as the War Powers Resolution, but additional legislative powers exist beyond that. For example, senators and members of the House can use their positions to raise the salience of issues, such as when Congress allows leaders of foreign nations to address it, or when legislators engage in legislative diplomacy and make trips abroad to meet with heads of state. There seems to be so much that Congress can do in foreign affairs. Is that right?...

There are thousands of books, podcasts, and social media posts about how to be more productive, strengthen your relationships, find your purpose, and be your all-around best self. And there are legions of programs and seminars out there designed to help you improve your life. All together, self-help represents a multi-billion dollar industry.But despite its ubiquity and cultural influence, you may never have thought about the deeper underpinnings of self-improvement. My guest has. In fact, her research led her to add being a life coach to her academic work as a professor of cultural history, surely creating one of the most unique career combinations. Her name is Anna Schaffner and she's the author of The Art of Self-Improvement: Ten Timeless Truths. Anna and I begin our conversation with how the idea of self-improvement, far from being a recent, Western phenomenon, traces back to antiquity and can be found across cultures. We discuss how self-help reflects what a culture values, and changes based on a culture's conception of selfhood, agency, and the relationship between the individual and society. From there we turn to a few of the timeless principles of self-improvement — self-control, being virtuous, and building positive relationships — looking both at how they were tackled anciently, as well as more modern angles that can also be helpful. We discuss the downside of taking a strictly Stoic approach to life, the idea of making virtue a habit, and how Dale Carnegie can be seen as a modern Machiavelli, in a good way. We end our conversation with Anna's four favorite self-improvement books.Resources Related to the PodcastAnna's previous appearance on the show — Episode #476: Are Modern People the Most Exhausted in History?AoM Podcast #377: 12 Rules for Life With Jordan PetersonBildungAoM Podcast #614 with Stephen Hayes, founder of Acceptance and Commitment therapyAoM Podcast #746: The Confucian GentlemanAoM Podcast #148: Trying Not to TryHow to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale CarnegieAnna's favorite self-improvement books:Meditations by Marcus AureliusThe Happiness Trap by Russ HarrisMan's Search for Meaning by Viktor FranklThe Power of Now by Eckhart TolleConnect with Anna SchaffnerAnna's Personal WebsiteAnna's Coaching Website
