The wrongful conviction of hundreds of subpostmasters for false accounting was so shocking that even Boris Johnson as called it one of the biggest miscarriages of justice in our history. Why did Post Office management cover up the truth about its flawed software, even after innocent people went to prison? As the Government sets aside £233m in interim compensation, criminal law expert Dr Hannah Quirk untangles a Kafkaesque nightmare that led innocent people to be ruined, jailed, shamed and pushed to suicide. Could anything stop something like this from happening again?https://www.patreon.com/bunkercast“Many innocent people pleaded guilty in the hope of avoiding prison.”“The Post Office knew there were flaws in its system. They hid that evidence from people they knew were wrongfully convicted.”“You can imagine the terror people felt of being imprisoned for crimes they did not commit.”“Somehow it didn't occur to anyone that hundreds of corrupt subpostmasters were coming to light where previously there were none.”Presented by Alex Andreou.

Blizzard/Activision has been sued over allegations of staggering harassment and workplace discrimination that have resulted in female employees being forced to leave their jobs to protect themself and one employee taking her own life. The allegations are triggering and raw, but sadly not unfamiliar to many women in male-dominated fields. Hopefully, this suit will signal to other women in gaming that it may be safe to sue, to push for fair treatment, to end harassment, and to demand equal pay.

In the U.S., most Americans commonly use vegetable or olive oil when cooking. While we don't often here about palm oil, it's in many of the products that we buy at the grocery store, including everything from food to personal care products. And abroad, palm oil is widely used in cooking and frying. Last year, global consumption reached 72 million tons. However, this ingredient is not being produced sustainably and has led to widespread deforestation in Southeast Asian countries. What's being done to curb the palm oil crisis?

Today’s episode doesn’t have an external guest, but Benjamin and Cameron provide fascinating information on a vast range of topics. First, the discussion centers around the book that Cameron is currently reading and what it is teaching him about social networks, the ego-driven world of social media, and the benefits of anonymity online. The hosts share some of the findings from a very insightful discussion which took place on their anonymous community board platform around people’s thoughts on the positive and negative impacts of work. Happiness and the factors that cause it are a big theme in today’s show, as is the practice of ‘buying the dip.’ If you aren’t familiar with this term, you should have a decent understanding of what it is and why you shouldn’t do it by the time you finish listening. The hosts also discuss the incident that has been called “the largest financial meltdown since 2008,” who the RR Model Portfolios are aimed at, and some of the ways people react to crises (in terms of their investments.) Tune in for a whirlwind education on some very important topics! Key Points From This Episode: Benjamin and Cameron share statistics which show how the podcast is growing. [0:02:53] How the hosts find the guests that they interview on the podcast. [0:03:10] Staggering one year stock performance numbers. [0:04:22] Why Cameron is reading The Hidden Psychology of Social Networks, and what he is learning from it. [0:06:56] Community boards and the arguments for and against anonymous online communities. [0:08:02] The “epic meltdown” which makes up the news story for today’s episode. [0:10:17] Where the value of the Rational Reminder Model Portfolios lies, who will benefit from them, and who probably won’t. [0:13:53] Tools which make implementation easy. [0:21:00] Data on individuals participating in 401(k) plans and a discussion around how humans deal with crises. [0:22:12] The conversation around connection, control, competence, context that was sparked by the question of whether the goal of retiring is a good one to have. [0:26:43] Jonathan Haidt’s Happiness Hypothesis; the importance of love and work. [0:29:34] People don’t tend to prioritize time over money to a point where it is detrimental. [0:32:53] What it means to ‘Buy the Dip,’ the reasons that people do it and the problems with engaging in this practice. [0:33:15] The paper that Benjamin has produced on ‘buying the dip’ which will be out by the time you listen to this episode. [0:40:34] Why the ‘buying the dip’ strategy has been particularly costly for Americans, and the contrast between the cases Benjamin looked at in the USA, Australia, Canada and Japan. [0:45:45] What people don’t realize about leverage and how this impacts their decision to ‘buy the dip.’ [0:52:00] The cards created by the University of Chicago Financial Education Initiative. [0:53:53] Cameron asks Benjamin a question from one of the cards; coincidentally it is about happiness. [0:55:00] The qualities that Cameron and Benjamin believe are most important in someone who is starting a business. [0:57:05]

On today's episode of @TheBreakdown I unpack and explain how police brutality is a math problem. African Americans are forced to interact with police FAR too much. And by drastically reducing these number of forced interactions, we will, by default, reduce the incidents of police brutality as well.Racism is deeply baked into the fiber of America. It's full embedded in our systems and structures of policing. And it's not a bug, but a key feature. So much so that I don't think it will ever be extracted from these systems. So, one sure fire way to reduce police violence in America is to reduce the number of times people interact with police altogether. As it is in the rest of the world.

In our ninth episode, we take our first look at the beloved St. Matthew Passion. Staggering in its emotional scope, this work tells the complete story of Jesus's suffering and death (from the Gospel of Matthew -- in German!), interspersed with personal reflections. Hearing this music, it is as if you are transported -- you are there, at the cross. The St. Matthew Passion is a true masterpiece.

For additional notes and resources check out Douglas’ website.IntroductionNorth American slavery had precedents in the Arab slave trade, though slavery throughout human history was hardly limited to Africa.400 years' duration, 4 million dying in the middle passage."Enslavement is almost ubiquitous in human history. What made Atlantic slavery unique was its vast, industrial scale, its racial determinism, and its absolute nature, in which slaves' legal status was hardly distinct from that of animals" (Alex Ryrie, Protestants: The Faith that Made the Modern World [New York: Viking, 2016], 184).American Civil War.Racism still an ugly issue in the United States."Slavery was abolished in Great Britain in 1807 and in all the British Empire by 1833. In the revolutionary U.S. it would not happen until the 1860's, and at a cost of at least 618,000 lives and the destruction of much of the South. Staggering. Can we really argue for 'American Exceptionalism?'" (Tom Jones)The Jim Crow laws persisted in the United States through 1968, in effect impeding the rights of citizenship for Black Americans, even after the Civil Rights Act and the legal right to vote.And slavery still exists globally (girls are abducted to become sex slaves [Asia], and boys to become child soldiers [Africa]).Does the Bible support slavery, a thoroughly demeaning, dehumanizing institution? Slavers quoted the Scriptures to support their inhumane practices. Yet American chattel slavery was very different from slavery in the ancient world. As we shall soon see, Antebellum slavery provides a false analogy.Slavery in the Ancient WorldBecame slaves because of poverty or war, often by personal choice. Usually they were not kidnapped; they entered servitude in other ways.Not permanent.Hope of eventual emancipation.Indentured servants paid off debts.Slaves possessed some legal rights.Due process.Right to own their own slaves.Not racially based:Only one's clothing indicated his status as a slave.Not the color of his skin!Not socially based.Not necessarily lowest rung of society. Not necessarily degrading. Could in fact be upgrading. Consider Joseph, promoted under Potiphar and Pharaoh.Could own property, lead a normal family life, and sometimes even participate in the same clubs as their masters!Easiest for city slaves, then farm slaves, and hardest for those working in the mines, or even as prostitutes.Not necessarily menial positions.Civil service, doctors, nurses, accountants, writers.Some famous ex-slaves in the ancient world: Felix (Acts 23-24), Aesop (5th century BC), Patrick (5th century AD).Sometimes freed because their labor was cheaper when the master wasn't paying room & board.Around the first century they were so often freed that Augustus Caesar made a law that none could be freed before the age of 30.Obviously if this is slavery, it has far less in common with the North American variety than we ever imagined.Slavery and the O.T.Dignity: regulating an inferior work arrangement, not idealizing it.Anti-kidnapping laws. Amos and other prophets spoke of the evil of human trafficking.Anti-harm laws: Freedom for bodily abuse. Exodus 21:20, 26! No other ancient law holds master accountable for treatment of his slaves. Code of Hammurabi permitted master to slice off disobedient slave’s ear. Law held master’s to account for their own servants, not just someone else’s. Exodus 21:6-7.Hittite laws – fines for sheltering runaways. Hammurabi: death for abetting runaways. But slaves were still just property. Babylon: returned slaves were branded, ears slit…. Anti-return laws – Deuteronomy 23:15-16.Laws in favor of the poor, e.g. automatic debt cancellation.Deuteronomy 15:4,11 – God did not desire poverty or servitude.Hebrew slavery was an oasis of liberty compared to typical slavery among the pagans.In other law codes in the Ancient Near East, this subject is dealt with at the end, but in Exodus it follows the Decalogue immediately. Direct connection between righteousness before God and righteous dealings with our fellow man.Slaves were to be set free if master knocked a tooth out. Human rights.Indentured servitude (Exodus 21 – dramatic improvement over slavery). Servitude existed because poverty existed.Slaves freed in the 7th year, though with the option to make the slave relationship permanent.Suboptimal (Nehemiah 5).Re: Exodus 21:9 ("He shall deal with her as a daughter"): "She is virtually his foster-child. The old Chinese custom of buying a slave-girl, as wife for the son in days to come, is an exact parallel. Probably the origin of the custom was the same in either case: to avoid paying a higher bride-price at a later age, and to rear the future daughter-in-law within the family, ensuring that she 'fitted in'. Such an attitude to slaves abolishes slavery, except in name" (R. Alan Cole, Exodus: An Introduction & Commentary, in the Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries, IVP, 1973).Exod 21:16 and Deut 24:7 have serious implications for the slave trade.Non-Hebrew slavesKidnapping forbidden (Exodus 21:16), yet that did not mean there wasn't a supply of slaves.They did not enjoy the same freedoms as Hebrew slaves. Leviticus 25:42-46: Male and female slaves from the pagan nations.Could be bequeathed to their master's children.Yet given the biblical emphasis on compassion, and the imperative to love the alien, it seems likely even foreign slaves were treated with a modicum of dignity.Leviticus 19:33-34 – Israel to love the stranger in the land.Exodus 21 – protect all servants from abuse.Slaves could acquire servants themselves, and even purchase their own freedom.Foreign servants might be elevated (as in 1 Chronicles 2, with marriage to an Egyptian servant). Inheritance rights.Non-Israelites could not acquire land, so they might have had no option but to attach themselves to an Israelite family.Slavery and the N.T.In the context of the Roman Empire.Perhaps 1/3 were slaves, another 1/3 freedmen. If this figure sounds too high, consider that when the Czar freed the serfs in Russia (1861), one third of the populace were toiling in this enslaved condition.Romans ruthless in putting down slave revolts (e.g. under Spartacus).Anachronistic of us to fault Paul and other early Christians for not stirring up dissension.N.T. scriptures1 Corinthians 7 — slaves should take the opportunity of freedom if possible, otherwise be content.Ephesians 6, Colossians 3-4: powerless mentioned first: wives before husbands, children before parents, slaves before masters.Galatians 3:28 and Colossians 3:11: status in Christ not dependent on socioeconomic factors.Paul sending Onesimus back to Philemon: freedom of travel. Compare Deuteronomy 23:15.Slave trade mentioned in Revelation 18:13, condemned in 1 Timothy 1:10.1 Timothy 6:1-2: Nowhere are masters told to demand submission from their slaves.Romans 6, 1 Corinthians 7, John 8 etc -- true freedom has nothing to do with political rights, and real slavery is slavery to sin.The early church (after 1st century)Ministrae tortured under Pliny (Bithynia, early 2nd century). Slaves occupied positions of leadership.No automatic exemption from requirement to show good character just because one was a slave."Those, that first come to the mystery of godliness... let them be examined as to the causes for which they come to the word of the Lord; and let those that bring them exactly inquire about their character, and give them... testimony. Let their manners and their life be inquired into, and whether they are slaves or freemen. And if any one is a slave, let him be asked who his master is. If he is slave to one of the faithful, let his master be asked if he can give him a good character [reference]. If he cannot, let him be rejected, until he show himself to be worthy to his master. But if he does give him a good character, let him be admitted. But if he is a household slave to an heathen, let him be taught to please his master, so that the word isn't blasphemed (Apostolic Constitutions 8.32).Perhaps this was requiring more than the church expected in the first century, but it is an interesting piece nonetheless.1 Clement 55:2 (about 96 AD) -- people selling themselves into slavery to free others."But when Christ came he annulled even [slavery], for in Christ Jesus 'there is no slave nor free.' Therefore, it is not necessary to have a slave; but if it should be necessary, then only one or at most a second... Buy them and after you have taught them some skill by which they may maintain themselves, set them free" (John Chrysostom, Homily 40 on 1 Corinthians 10).Many slaves were attracted to the Christian faith.Why, if (as some critics allege) Christianity put them down?For the same reason that minorities and women were attracted: they were respected, welcomed, loved, and honored.ConclusionsHebrew slavery saw increased humaneness over that in slavery in the secular world.Through the course of biblical history, an ethic of dignity and respect is cultivated. Pedagogical function.Progressive revelation: God enlightening his people more and more through the course of biblical history.There is a difference between recording and approving; between regulating and approving.God's highest standard and will are revealed only in the New Testament.Overall trajectoryChattel slavery—Israelite treatment of foreign slaves—Israelite treatment of Hebrew slaves—socioeconomic freedom. Those who labored for emancipation, esp. in Britain and the United States, were inspired by biblical principles.Through Christian influence, slavery was eventually eliminated in most of the world. This did not take place because of the influence of Hinduism, or Islam, or any other major world religion.Slavery in N.T. times was radically different from slavery in the more recent American experience.Most criticisms of slavery in the Bible are based on caricatures of Christianity, ignorance of Hebraic law, and lack of exposure to the true message of the gospel.Christianity is not a cause for the injustice and brutality of slavery. It was through the effects of the Spirit of Christ, after all, that the great emancipation movements were inspired and to some degree successful.As believers, we need to be ready to defend the Bible from unfair attack. In our interactions with outsiders, you and I need to know our stuff.Further thought & studyPaul Copan, Is Yahweh a Moral Monster?Brian J.
