Christopher Hitchens — Speaking Honestly About Hillary Clinton


HITCHENS: As for Mrs. Clinton… Look! After all she’s done for us, and all she’s
suffered on our behalf she feels she’s owed the Presidency and
you know Who could possibly disagree? Her life is meaningless if she doesn’t get
a least a shot! And — one can only sympathize. Unless you think, as I do, that people should be distrusted who are running
for therapeutic reasons. Because the Presidency doesn’t calm those
demons as her husband has already proved. But look — the reason we have to think about it, and the reason why your question is a good one is this: What else can the democrats do? And if thats the case, what the hell shape
are we in? It still divides us as between those of us
who think that a job must be found for Hillary Clinton, That the country would be somehow disgraced if she wasn’t in an important position, and those of us who could do without her. And neither answer to that question is gonna make any difference at all to the way the market performs. If there were some foreign policy
experience or brilliance Hillary Clinton had ever shown maybe we overlook the fact that she and her husband have never met a foreign political donor they don’t like and haven’t taken from. Look, this is the woman who played the race
card on Barack Obama. This is the woman who if you for “Change that you can believe in” whatever change it was you were voting against. This is the woman whose foreign policy experience
consists of making a fool of herself and fabricating a
story about Bosnia. This is the woman who, with her husband, have
so many connections fundraising connections overseas: Indonesia,
China. Just look at today’s and yesterday’s New
York Times at the list of people with whom the former President Clinton has
acquired a tremendous burden of debt. These are people who pay him all
the time. From odd parts of the Middle East to strange
donors all over the place. My colleague at Vanity Fair Todd Purdum, anyone can google this, just put in “Purdum
Clinton.” See if you can bear to read the sort of friendships
that a former President is having. Its undignified to think about it! From the Riady Family in Indonesia to numerous
Chinese donors who left this country rather than show up
for the hearings on it. But I don’t know of any such expertise on
her part except her pretense to have been under fire
in Bosnia when she had not. Actually when there was pressure on the Clinton
Administration Lez Aspen was Secretary of Defense, you remember? To do something about Sarajevo, to stop the
killing, to prevent the ethnic cleansing Hillary Clinton moved in — hard on her husband
and said “Don’t you do a thing about Bosnia, It’ll
spoil my wonderful healthcare plan.” At least on Healthcare, she knows enough about
the subject to have really… changed American Healthcare for the worse
in her time but foreign policy about foreign policy, she doesn’t even know
that much! MATTHEWS: But I am very suspicious when John
Kyle, a major supporter of the war in Iraq and complete
hawk and neocon in many ways, complete hawk supports her for this. Henry Kissinger has come out of the woodwork, he supports her for this! (HITCHENS: Yes!) Why do these establishmentist conservatives
want her? What are they up to? Why do they want her? I don’t know what they want. HITCHENS: Kissinger… Don’t compare Kissinger
to Kyle I mean, Kissinger is a critic of the war and
a so called realist and someone who likes MATTHEWS: But why do they want her? They’re
both Republicans. Why do they want her? HITCHENS: Because, she’s a status quo type
and They know they can, so to speak, trust her She’s a member of their club. To remind people at this point of the lowest
stage of the Clinton Administration when… Eric Holder signed off at the Justice Department
on the pardon of this fugitive… shall we call him financier? Who’d also given, rather a large loan that
didn’t seem to have been repaid to one of Hillary Clinton’s brothers, who in turn with the other brother
had gone for a Walnut monopoly or was it a hazelnut monopoly
in the Republic of Georgia? Odd bits of the Caucasus involved in American
foreign policy here. Plus donations to the Clinton library. It builds up and it goes on. Is this how the
President elect really wants to start? The amazing brothers of her’s who nearly
got the — was it the — nut monopoly in Kazakstan or something farcical
like that? Just look it up! It’s a ludicrous embarrassment for the President
and for the country. JOURNALIST: You were asked and talked about
the qualifications of now your nominee for Secretary of State. And you belittled her travels around the world equating it to having teas with foreign leaders. And your new White House Council said that her resume was grossly exaggerated when it came to foreign policy. OBAMA: Look, I mean, I think this is fun for
the press to try to stir up whatever quotes were generated during
the course of the campaign. No, I understand! And, you’re having fun. If you look at the the statements that Hillary
Clinton and I have made outside of the heat of the campaign… W We share a view. HITCHENS: Can I just add though that I thought
Obama’s answer there was incredibly cheap and evasive? I mean he was right the first time to say:
This woman doesn’t in fact have any foreign policy experience and he could have added, which also came up in the campaign that the
experience she has claimed such as in Bosnia was fake, was fabricated and he could also have added that she, like
his other nominee (for the Attorney Generalship) main qualification
in politics is being a friend of Marc Rich, which I don’t think is “change.” As I say, if it hadn’t involved her too,
the campaign finance scandals. We’re not talking about the ongoing stuff,
Mr. Clinton’s huge speaking fees in the Gulf and elsewhere. We’re talking about previous convictions:
In the Clinton fundraising scandal If it wasn’t for the fact that she couldn’t
refuse her brothers everything or sorry anything. Couldn’t refuse them anything. Anything they wanted they seemed to have got,
including some kind of deal for Marc Rich. All of this might be forgivable, or it might
assume a different proportion David if it wasn’t for the fact that This woman doesn’t really have any foreign
policy experience worth mentioning. And what is memorable about it, is pretty
bad! Remember Kissinger had to decline the honor that Bush wanted to give him of being Chair of the 9/11 Commission because
it would have involved mentioning the names of all the people who he had business
dealings around the world. And he wasn’t willing to do that with Kissinger
Associates. He didn’t want to expose his clientele. The same thing, believe you me The same thing, believe you me, is gonna come up with the She’s been very very very uncritically pro-Israel
though. At all times. It’s true that she’s got a major name
on the World stage, that’s true by definition It’s only true that she’s respected in
the Pentagon if people go around saying so, I’ve never heard that before I must say. On some things she’s more hawkish than the
President elect, yes. But, she tends to have a quietless reputation
in what I’d call an opportunist matter I mean, who really thinks she felt that strongly
about Iraq? She just didn’t want to cast her vote the
other way. WALSH: He’s not worried about that! I genuinely think that if he’s got an eye toward politics it’s global politics and he wants the strength
of the Clinton name the Clinton brand. HITCHENS: Well thats what thats what the Secretary
of State is for and what you want as President is to know Your secretary of state spends all her working
to make sure your policies stick. With this woman that can’t be said she’s
always thinking first about herself, second about her husband. And third about ?, that’s never changed
and it’s never going to WALSH: That’s your opinion, Christopher. HITCHENS: … Nor will anyone. Guess what, guess who’s saying it? That’s a very clever thing to say. Shall I ask? Would you prefer I uttered your opinion? what a fatuous remark! MATTHEWS: Christopher!

Why Doesn’t the U.S. Have a Multi-Party Political System? | Sean Wilentz


The two party system is inevitable in America. The framers designed a constitution that they
thought would be without political parties. They didn’t like political parties. They thought political parties were divisive. They thought political parties would ruin
the commonwealth as they saw it. They didn’t like them, and yet they designed
a system in which parties very quickly arose and we’re never going to go away. And the reason is simple that in a country
as large, as diverse with so many clashing interests as the United States it’s going
to become necessary to find a focus, to find a focus for your political actions. Parties have become that focus. They very quickly became that focus. Now, the question is why don’t we have a multiparty
system? Why aren’t we more like Italy say or even
France or a European parliamentary system? Well that’s the answer is that we’re not a
parliamentary system. Because we have a system that we do and because
it’s based on the idea of first past the post, in other words the person who gets the most
amount of votes will win the election, they’re not going to have proportional representation. If you get ten percent of the votes you’re
not going to get ten percent of the power you’re going to get nothing. On that account then the pressure is very,
very strong for there to be eventually a two party system. Third parties can come in and they can have
a tremendous amount of influence in shaping the major parties, but as a great historian
once said third parties are like bees, they sting and then they die. So they make their sting, but because a third-party
will always almost inevitably help the party they’re most unlike, as you saw with say the
Nader campaign in 2000 who got elected, they have their effect but then they very quickly
disappear. So I think the two parties, it’s not so much
that I have some metaphysical or ontological love for two parties as a thing, it’s rather
that’s the way the American constitutional system works. Now, if you change the constitutional system,
of course, that would change as well, but it’s embedded in the way that our government
was set up in 1787/’88 and it continues that way to this day.

Three main political parties’ reaction about presidential meeting


Let’s head over to the National Assembly…
Our parliamentary correspondent Park Jiwon is standing by.
Ji won, how do the three main political parties feel about their meeting with the president? “Well, Conn-young.
The overall consensus here at the assembly is that today’s meeting went pretty smoothly.
Although opposition parties said they weren’t quite satisfied with today’s results solely,…
they at least rated highly President Park’s willingness to cooperate respect the parliament
more by holding regular meetings.” During a press briefing held at the parliament,…
ruling Saenuri Party’s floor leader Chung Jin-suk said President Park and political
leaders talked frankly over diverse issues ranging from the economy and the people’s
livelihoods to national security,… confirming the participants’ willingness to communicate
on a regular basis. “Personally, I am very satisfied with the
meeting. We were assured that there will be a possibility of cooperation among parties.” The main opposition Minjoo Party of Korea
said it did its best to deliver its view on various matters to the President,… from
how the government should handle the deaths caused by a toxic humidifier sterilizer,…
and the chronic budget problems of the nation’s free childcare services,… to the matter
of revising a special law on the 2014 Sewol-ho ferry disaster.
The liberal party said,… the recent election results that stripped the ruling party from
parliamentary majority show that the public is not content with the government’s current
policies. But the party’s new floor leader Woo Sang-ho
took a rather smoother approach,… expecting next meetings. “We couldn’t agree on issues like inter-Korean
relations, nor the special law on the Sewol-ho ferry,… but I didn’t expect to get satisfactory
results in the first meeting. We will continue to voice our opinions through the next regular
meetings.” Meanwhile, the minor opposition People’s Party
floor leader, Park Jie-won, evaluated the meeting positively. “President Park laughed when I told her that
it was me who criticized the President the most for not being communicative enough. And
she told us she will better communicate and cooperate with the parliament, and respect
the will of the public. I think it is a considerable achievement.” “While the People’s Party appreciates President
Park’s more open-minded approach to the parliament,… the centrist party pointed out that there
are some issues that the party considers as its future tasks,…but that the president
didn’t quite specify her stance over them yet.
Conn-young.” Like the president said… this is just the
first step in many more ahead… and we’ll have to wait and see whether a healthy relationship
and better collaboration can be established between the nation’s top office and the parliament.
Thanks, Ji-won for the report.

Yanis Varoufakis on the state of Europe and the Euro


Thank you darling. Good morning ladies and gentlemen then don’t worry about pronouncing my name I’ve had worse when when I got my first job at Cambridge I remember the master of the college introduced me as like the greek with a dirty name, so Well, there is a may What a week she’s had two days before the General election [I] Got a glimpse of one of her interviews in which you she was asked by BBC journalist Why should the British voters go for her and she said because I had a plan and then I was immediately reminded of Mike Tyson His fame was saying everybody has a plan until I punched him in the nose I Don’t want to be disparaging because I had the plan when I went to brussels in January 2015 the result was not too different, but [let’s] move Beyond plans and punches that are delivered with such accuracy and venom by reality because this is what we are facing and Let’s talk about reality itself We live in a strange world remember the 1980s Ron Reagan [I] was Elected in order to bring. What was it morning in America and The way in which he was going to do it was through unfettered markets and a small state that knows its place it knows how to wither out of Sight now I have done a drum about carnage in America in his inauguration and [builds] a whole narrative of what is going to bring the United states out of its liturgy and make it great again on the basis of Precisely office of moving away from unfettered markets of Moving in some direction of some kind of Trumpian Protectionism at the same time since I spoke about there is a may recall that there is a may Also made a break from Margaret thatcher Ronald Reagan’s soulmate on the other side of the Pond She repeatedly – both of course the left irresponsibility fiscally, but also the Libertarian rights other belief in unfettered markets Meanwhile on the other side of the British Channel we have the complete collapse of the political center? You saw what happened last Sunday in France the two major political parties disappeared just completely [other] disappeared I come from a party Where almost every political party has disappeared? We have you know if abstention? Could take seats in parliament. We would have a crushing majority of Empty Seats similarly in France last Sunday. I Want to put forward the hypothesis that? all these phenomenon From trump to Europe to development in China this Nexus which binds our fates together combining development in Europe and I include [briefly] that It not don’t let’s not confuse the Eu Europe the United States or China those developments Can only be understood in the context of what I shall refer to as a major major radical coordination failure? of a planetary magnitude and Allow me to make this the point that What lies behind in my estimation the uncertainty that you face on your daily base? the political turmoil in Europe and elsewhere [is] A very simple fact and it being an economist. I can’t stop being economically deterministic, so allow me to Put forward. What is fundamentally economic hypothesis? Ladies and gentlemen do you realize that I’m sure you realize but I need to state it Just once more just to hear it because it is such a startling fact Since 1960 we have the largest saving ratio globally and the lowest Investment Ratio Well, we can all go home now. This is it This is the real cause of the turmoil the real cause of [the] trouble that we find ourselves in globally when you have a mountain of Savings and a trickle of investment funding on investment indle Physical capital any cause capital formation You realize that capitalism is not working the Tamils that we experience everywhere [is] the result of the fact that the money markets are not equilibrating savings and investment Now the question is why it is happening? What does it mean and what can can be done to fix it? well as briefly as I can This is this rober of equilibrating savings and investment has always been with us Because let’s face it the money market is not like the market for potatoes or for cars In any market for physical products of services in every micro Economic market to put it this way excess supply leads to a reduction in price which then Shrinks Supply boost demand equilibrates excess supply problem solved so when they’re unsold potatoes the price goes [down] and They get solved simultaneously production potatoes comes down, but in the money market This doesn’t happen Because when you’ve got excess supplies supply of savings what is the price of investment funding well the rate of Interest if The rate of Fitness comes down that of course reduces the costs of borrowing to invest, but that is not what investments are all about Investors do not care about money. They do not want they do not Express demand for investment funding for its own sake and like potatoes that you purchase because somebody wants [written] Money is not edible money is only useful to the extent that it can be invested into products productive processes that yield goods and services that can be solved so if you’re tossing and turning in the middle of the night Wondering whether you should invest in some new product in some new production Lines and your service of course you care about the cost of borrowing of course you care about the cost of labor But this is not what? Determines your decision to invest what the terms your decision to invest is some optimism that at the end of the [production] line When your new good or service is produced [there’s] going to be demand for it But that depends on what others like you tossing and turning in the middle of the night also decide Because what you need in order sufficient aggregate demand is sufficient aggregate [divine] investment, [so] it is a genuine coordination problem I always [tried] before I got into politics I would try to explain this to [to] my students MBA students graduate [fitness] [on] phone in Economics um by means of a very simple Little trick I would say to them now For the next assignment. I have to tell you that I really can’t be bothered to market [it] [is] truly There is nothing worse than marking scripts. It’s even worse than sitting in [eurogroup] meetings So let me just give you a grade now Take out a piece of paper write your student your name and your student number and I want an integer between one and nine including one and I and Your grade [will] be determined by a very simple formula. We’ll pick up all those pieces of [paper] I will choose the number the integer that is the minimum the minimum integer chosen amongst You that would be a common factor follow all of you I will multiply it by 11 That’s common [for] [all] of you minimum times 11 and from that common factor I shall subtract subtract your choice, and that’s your percentage So if everybody chooses the maximum number which is [nine] the minimum is nine nine times in 1199. Mine is yours Which is nine ninety percent everybody gets 90 percent everybody gets an a-Plus everybody passes everybody goes home right now But of course you say where everybody chooses a two they get 80%? Take Choose [4] To get 40% [110] percent now here the beauty of this little example. Is that this is not a free riding Opportunity it is not a prisoner’s dilemma You do not have an incentive to choose a low number while others are choosing a high number You do not have an incentive to cheat It’s a coordination [problem]. Everybody would love everybody else to choose a high [number] Just like investors every investor would love everybody to invest So they invest so everybody makes money and they make money And if you think that others are going to invest it is not in your interest not to invest [yourself]. You’ll be left behind similarly in this example with the little Grading game as I call it if you think others will choose mine. What’s your point? What why would you choose one if you choose one the minimum is one you fail the others fail, but you fail, too so The Optimal strategy in this grading game is to choose the number that you think will be the minimum amongst everybody else similarly not the same But similarly in investment everybody would like to imagine what others would be investing The extent to which others would be investing and they will invest more or less the same But not more so pessimism Reproduces and reconfirms itself because if enough people believe that enough people will be [pessimistic] and therefore will invest very little Then everybody has an incentive to invest very little and then you know what Lo and Behold Investment is low as I said you see we were right but not because the equilibrium the right [answer] is low investment if They were all optimistic or enough of them were optimistic that we thing are Investing will be high so let’s invest it with all invest and then we say outlook we were right Investment is high so we were right to invest, so This is the conundrum that we find ourselves in I imagine We’re in the middle of the night, and you are tossing and turning in bed, and you are wondering shall I invest or not high investment low investment strategies and You can’t sleep so you switch on your smart phone, and you hear that janet yellen is thinking Against all odds of reversing her interest rate policy and actually reducing interest [rate] the United States today or indulging in more qe You think what do you think oh great? The costs of investing are going to be reduced because the rate of interest coming down old is it more likely that you think oh? No For janet Yellen to be reducing interest [rate] things must be bad You see this is a tragedy with money markets when things are bad and savings are high investment is low the price of money comes down and instead of Having a calibration we have this equilibration so tax cuts interest rate reductions in the middle of a crisis may reduce the costs of production or the cost of investment they may Allow those with greater savings to keep more of it rather than to pay to the taxman [a] woman But they do not create more investment. They can actually have the the opposite effect now if you combine this with the most buying difficulty and incongruity since the beginnings of Capitalism which [is] the fact that we have two contradictory Forces Two contradictory tendencies since the inception of capitalism on the one hand to create a common currency To fix exchange [rate] I heard the introduction You’re particularly worried and concerned that the pound is going up So it down this. I’m still stacking you in 2015 territory and So the party’s coming down the here is going up the dollar is going up and down Volatility you’re concerned about that’s quite natural So there is a tendency to try to create political mechanism by which to dampen these this volatility to fix exchange rates to To reduce the volatility in the fluctuations of exchange rate It’s kind of quite natural but they’re not if you think about it. The natural limit of this is the Gold Standard Bretton Woods the [Euro] the Us dollar Mexican peso peg the Chinese peg this is the natural conclusion of this limit the moment you peg Currencies together of surplus and deficit regions of the [world] what you are doing effectively in the interests of Doing away with volatility and uncertainty You are causing a massive tsunami of capital that will flow with probability one from the surplus from from the banks of the Central region to the deficit regions why is this because whenever you have a chronic current let me give you a Random exact example take Germany [and] Greece totally randomly every Mercedes-Benz that gets sold or Volkswagen That gets sold in greece means that there’s a wad of money going from a Greek bank Through the [Target] [so] to system of the European Central bank to a bank in front cars go one way money comes the other way so that immediately creates a glut of money in Frankfurt and the shortage of liquidity in a place like this that immediately means that the real rate of interest in a place like Frankfurt is going to be dampened and the real rate of interest in place I greece is going to go up [immediately] the bankers of Frankfurt have a cause have an incentive to Shift very large parts of that Lake of Liquidity from Frankfurt to a place like Greece by which to extract the higher rate of Interest now this causes a period of Exuberant Growth both in Greece, and in Germany remember the 2000s. This is what happened after the creation of the year? Greece was growing at 55.5% 8% in nominal GDP terms, [we] where the miracle of Europe. Do you remember that no? you don’t remember that because lots of things have [happened] since that, but we where Greece and Ireland had the highest growth rates between 1998 and 2008 This is why German Bankers and French bankers even celia were rushing to greece to [lend] as if there was no tomorrow? Yeah, the greek debt did not happen repetitiously there was a Mechanism and an Act dynamic behind okay, so this is what happens. It’s not just greece in Germany think of us and Mexico [u.s.] And Argentina during the peg, Era 1920s the gold Exchange standard, Era, and it happened they European exchange rate mechanism period That ill-fated awful design still had that effect it happens every time that you try to Respond to the investors and to the business persons Demand for less volatility in in exchange rates by means of fixing exchange rate. This is what you get and of course Upon the skin it’s like me going into a car dealer and saying [I’ll] I want your card and I want the money to buy it with So [its] vendor financing Which is exponential? This kind of growth [can] only continue when debt private that that? Public that doesn’t really matter these people say I look at [Ireland] and greece. They’re very different They’re not different. The only difference was that in Ireland. It was the private sector that became hugely invested and Indebted in greece it was the public sector the result was exactly the same bankruptcy of the state in both case either directly as in greece or indirectly through Anglo, Irish and so on in Ireland and then of course the bubble bursts because [this] is what happens when you build pyramids and Clueless politicians who couldn’t see this coming even though it happens every time [try] to fix it and how [do] they try to fix it? With [a] extremely short term agenda so in the case of greece in the games of Spain Violent of italy as they dealt with it as if this was a greek problem or an Irish problem or an Italian problem? Never did the European union sit down and treat a systemic crisis systematically Similarly think of latin America and Central America by the time Brady bonds came to clear up the mess a whole [generation] had been depleted Think of Argentina were still mopping up after that disaster so there is On the one hand the tendency to fix exchange rate is on the other hand reality punching your plan in the nose and causing Massive social deprivation as a result of politicians who are in power when the bubbles burst? firstly Analytically incapable of understanding what happened and secondly morally and politically not strong enough in order to say you know what we cannot deal with this problem by means of a combination of more loans and Austerity which saps the incomes of those in deficit and in debt Call me Greece so what really happened in 2008 Between the 1970s and 2008 we had a very interesting Global flow of capital and commodities think about the Bretton woods system Which had fixed exchange rates was predicated on the iDea that? the United States was a surplus country that would be recycling in surpluses to equilibrate and coordinate these problems between Surpluses and deficits that’s what the marshall plan was that was what American policy visible? Opening its markets to Japan was it was a hegemonic attempt to politically manage the flow of goods and of capital in a global regime of fixed exchange rates that died in 1971 with an excellent show why did he die because America lost his services and then we had a second period Between the MiD-1970s let’s say and 2008 During Which the Global financial flows and good flows and trade flows were effectively managed by America’s twin deficits the American deficits operated like a huge vacuum cleaner that fact into the territory of the United states the net exports of giant of Germany of the Netherlands of Japan Later China, and closing the circle by sucking in towards 370 percent of global profits so [that] was recycling but 2008 With the Meltdown of the financial sector even though the financial sector was reflate at a year later by the actions of A Central Banks the Fed primarily But not just the fed and be china that inflated its current credit bubble in order to give Western Capitalism The Europeans and the Americans an opportunity to get their act together even though it was inflated it never managed to play again the role of closing the loop and Using America’s deficits or anybody’s deficits in order to provide the requisite demand to german-dutch? Chinese and Japanese factories so as to maintain The level of aggregate investment where it was so if we have failed to provide to produce coordination after 2008 if this crisis is continuing if Macron managed to win not just the presidency, but the National assembly elections at the Expense of the main parties if breaks will prevail if Donald trump is coming This is all underpinned by the punch of reality which has to do It’s a kind of nemesis following the Hubris of us collectively Failing to come to terms with a major coordination failures part of by 2008 which we have never managed to deal with even to discuss sensibly so populist Xenophobes racists and tumult in general is the price we pay globally For our failure politically to come to terms with our economic reality. Thank you very much That’s it Great. Thanks for your comments Be honest [you] managed to explain the euro crisis and the trump trade all in one being framework, and it’s one I’m sympathetic to the idea that we have this global, but as savings are not enough investment [I] Want to start off by talking about that actually so when I talk to policymakers about investing more particularly in this country And say it will drive GDP growth the response I get a few cares about GDP growth you’re such an anglo-Saxon [we] have a high [standard] of living and low unemployment So why should we care and I understand you’re saying as a coordination problem But what would your answer to them? Beyond that why should they care in Japan or in germany where unemployment is really low standard of living is really high Well since we’re in German you might as well pay respect to this nation and address Germany Well Germany has what is it? What was the last? Figure eight point seven percent [kind] [of] come suppose something like that moving up yeah now What does this mean it means that the [hard-working] germans have to send their savings to [the] spendthrift? That’s what it means This is not something that hard-working Germans like to do But this is what they have to do because if you have a chronic current account surplus then If you have constantly saving more than we invest Saving more than you spend you’re going to have to take this your savings since you cannot lend them to anyone in this country because there isn’t enough demand for it you’re going to have to give it to the Greeks and If not to the greeks you have to give it to somebody that you mistrust so the hard-working German Investors are forced to effectively hand over their future [to] jurisdictions and To companies and to peoples that they have no control over [I] don’t think the hard-working German like that And it is not confused to equilibrium in the long term dynamic equilibrium. Let’s face it What is keeping Germany [going]? It’s China It’s really very simple [and] what is keeping China in a position to perform this role for Germany a credit bubble [do] the Germans really want to have their future rely on a credit bubble? [I] do not believe that You know knowing having many many friends in this country that they can go to sleep at night? safe in the thoughts that their future nest egg depends on a credit bubble and welcome so it was very clear [she] said quite recently that he disparages the very low interest rates of the European central bank because they are the ones that are [feed] feeding the monster of Xenophobia at the NDI today this country and she’s right now of course he’s shooting the messenger Do you think the German investors will have a long enough time for him to think about what might happen when that credit bubble bursts? Or they’re just going for [this] they probably don’t and this is a tragedy that we all face and this is not a criticism of German investors is a criticism of All over [netting] you know we are we are like the grasshopper not the end Globally we are thinking of today We’re not thinking of the future you cannot continue along the path We cannot continue along the path that we are yeah, it’s simply not sustainable So to talk a little bit about the future in Europe Your experience going from athens to brussels [it] was a big shock a big change things are done [differently] in brussels I think everyone can agree actually I’m no no oh, well. They’re mostly Competence and brussels it is you know so Olympic gold star, but in terms of processes [to] tell us. How you really feel yes In terms of processes though things are done a little bit differently So knowing what you know now about processes and negotiating style What would you have done differently and what would you tell Teresa may to do? Given that she’s in theory going to have to go to brussels and try to negotiate breakfast I remember in a discussion had larry summers um Sometime in April when I was still [minister]. He said to me young [is] he made a very big mistake me He didn’t say mate. I’m adding that Gladys assad used the word mate. He said you made a very big mistake. I thought oh my God. [I’m] latin So what was my mistake like said you won the election So the thing that I greatest mistake, but no look The greatest mistake was to trust That our team had an agreement amongst ourselves that we would stick to because between between you and I don’t tell anyone ah [things] were really very simple at the beginning of 2015 yes. We were a part of the hard left But what we went to brussels with was not a leftist agenda You remember as megan it was a very simple agenda It was indeed when I when I put it to several friends of mine, the United States Finances they said to me well that is the poly that that is what the wall street? Bankruptcy lawyer would have come up with this set of proposals. We we said with one Yeah, [a] debtor structure that will allow us to have a and a modest But the reachable primary service Target, so that we could reduce Tax rates for business V18 and so on in order to stimulate the economy have an investment bank to create some kind of homegrown Investment and a bad [bank] to deal with NPL now How left-wing is that but it took a hard left finance minister to come up with what would be a bankruptcy lawyers Proposals so this is I don’t regret going to them with this what I do regret doing was I I I regret trusting that Reason would prevail in the eurogroup at some point they would see that this would be in their own benefit that they would get more of their money back if we Went down this Road? Rather than the road that they followed in the end so that wasn’t Yeah, maybe I was maybe this and I was [naive] [in] believing that my own team my primary study in particular and I would stick together through Hell or high water and say no to more [loan] tranches that add to our unsustainable debt on conditions of shrinking our incomes And I so what would have done differently I would have brought on a crack a clash with the troika of Lenders Within the first month I would not have waited [until] June so you see I’m just Beyond Salvation Okay, and put on that basis. What’s your advice [to] Theresa may who now has to go in and arguably the Europeans Don’t don’t understand what the risks are for them of brexit Well, let me just say that The narrative not has changed completely as a result of the hung parliament by the way I think that this hunk parliament is the best thing that could have happened for Britain and for the European union it Is an amazingly good outcome? Because now it may. Be there is a possibility that some sense is going to be knocked into Mrs.. Mays head and That we are now going to go for what is the only possible long-term? Sustainable solution which is six year period Let’s say five six years of an interim Norway Style European economic area agreement, so what you do is you say, you can’t say to the british people You vote for brexit. We are going to ignore it. We’re democrats we have to respect it, but at the same time let’s remember that the Referendum is a binary choice The [choice] [breaks] but they didn’t choose. What kind of breaks and What was a big and what was the strongest argument in favor of brexit from a political philosophy? Liberal Perspective burke in perspective to restore Sovereignty to the house of Commons well looks for it let the house of commons beside what? long-term future The United Kingdom wants with a you but that takes five years to decide the two-year period of supposed Negotiations is not going to give them any such answer there will be no negotiations. So there’s only one year now exactly sighs so my Advice to her even written [Op] [eds] about this [is] very very simple don’t negotiate Because you cannot negotiate you spend you will waste the next year negotiating for the high to negotiate which is not going to be granted and In the end the only thing that Mr.. Burhan, Mr.. Juncker [it] is merkel fear the most is a mutually advantageous agreement Coming out of negotiations. They do not want a mutually advantageous agreement They want one that teaches any other [recalcitrant] in Europe that if you challenge brussels you get a bloody nose even if the peoples of Europe end up suffering as well So the only way of not negotiating is either you you pick up something you leave which it would be catastrophic or you table for an off-the-shelf a Table you table request for an off-the-shelf agreements We switch them like or [norway’s] style now if she had won a landslide victory She could not have gone that way because he’s already proclaimed that she wants a [heartbreak] suit Why would you want to say this? I don’t know but anyway um Well now with the bloody nose permanently featuring on her face She get an opportunity to escape the trap [that] [she] set up [for] yourself. Yeah interesting [I’m] and though it could go horribly horribly wrong if But with a hand philemon, there’s a better chance that won’t go horribly wrong Small [atcha] small chance, but we had the zero jump before that right yeah And what about the rest of Europe because you spent a lot of time traveling around Europe talking to policymakers? We have any president in France who looks like he’s going to have an absolute majority in Parliament We’ve got the german elections coming up. Do you think do you see anything shifting of the basis of this new leadership? Well the the developments in France are major because [this] fake [France] is the battleground [foody] you you’ve written on both sides on my car. You’ve written to support him and entered a napkin so well Allow me to explain this firstly. I consider him to be a friend We have a very good personal relationship I personally like the guy. I think he’s a very he’s a splendid chap And he and he understands the problems the architectural problems of the eurozone However, I disagree with his policies, and I disagree with how [he’s] trying to get to what I think is right Aim The right destination, so we agree on what needs to be done, but I disagree severely with the way He’s [thinking] of achieving His views very simply and nothing you know that we haven’t had a chance to discuss it before but I think we know the same Story his view is [that] okay for about in a year? He is going to pass through the French national assembly Legislation especially for the labor markets that germany passed 15 years ago the hard sphere reforms the shredder Agenda and So on Which is too late to do in [Germany] [in] [Germany] in France now these kinds of micro economic reforms work only? during a period of rising investment if Investment is falling and you give companies the [opportunity] to fire and uber eyes workers you are not going to create more jobs during periods of increasing investment if you give more opportunities [to] large companies [to] To have more control over whom they [file] and whom we hire they will create good jobs, but because investment is rising so he’s going to Expand his political capital and popularity took to pass through parliament Measures that will not work in a direction that he wants so as to go to Berlin Welcome to Berlin. I should say and say to American in a Year’s time look I’ve [germanized] France now. We have a german france Yield on federation We want a common budget. We want comment on climate insurance who are the proper banking union all the things that we really need You know what she’s going to say to him Nope, not doing it And then where is McCrum going to be he will have expanded his political capital And he will not get a meaningful federation a macro economically significant federation Why do you say that she’ll say [no] so she will have no reason to say yes? So institutional change for Europe is reckoning I? have I hold Angela merkel in the highest regard I’m actually quite this terrible, but I’m quite. Happy that she’s going to be reelected because I distrust Martin Schultz and esther day immensely I dealt with them They were my comrades They [talked] to me as if we were friends we were going to have evolution together and then five minutes later They were worse than cycling. I preferred soy blend any day this place [Espa] the kind of policy you know languages. Just appalled some glad Americans and especially given her Splendid and Outstanding model leadership on the refugee [issue] Which of course then was snuffed out by her party, but nevertheless. I hold it in the highest esteem, but I think she’s Mr. Chance her chance of leading Europe down the path of federation was 2010 2010 2011 She had to do it. It would have been fantastic for Germany to do it it You know would have been a different place now, but now I think she’s winning her last term in office Already her control over the tadeo has diminished I Can’t she deliver that which Micron is asking No, I don’t think she can even if she wants to anymore, and she can certainly not deliver anything. Which is something more than cosmetic Okay, and that uplifting thought [and] sadly we’ve run out of time, but I will point out [that]. There’s a session later But with [yanis] that all of you can fire Rapid-fire questions at him during so let’s all give him. Thanks again. If you have Megan Sorry about the community Go down

Hidden Meaning in Forrest Gump – Earthling Cinema


Greetings, and welcome to Earthling
Cinema. I am your host, Garyx Wormuloid. This week’s artifact is Forrest Gump,
starring Earth’s own Tom Hanks, widely considered to be
the poor man’s Jason Biggs. Forrest Gump tells the story of a
feather-collector named Forrest Forrest Gump, “I’m Forrest, Forrest Gump.” who likes to bombard people with his life
story for no apparent reason, often not even noticing
when his audience changes. Although he is born a cyborg, his robotic implants soon fall apart, and he is able to pass as a human. At human school, he meets a
miniature female named Jenny. He plays football, which is really easy and doesn’t require anything but running in a straight line. After that, Forrest joins the Army on a whim.
He saves everyone from getting exploded, but his friend Bubba dies of shrimp poisoning.
For his trouble, Forrest gets a shiny new necklace. He plays ping pong and becomes a national celebrity. “All I did was play ping pong.” because ping pong was America’s most popular and widely-discussed sport, other than flasketball. Forrest coincidentally reconnects
with his old sergeant, Lieutenant Dan, “Lieutenant Dan!”
“Imbecile!” right around the time they start
a chain of restaurants together. “We got more money than Davy Crockett.” Jenny comes back for a quickie
and runs away again just kicks. Forrest goes for a jog to think things over, then meets his son, marries Jenny, and buries Jenny. Finally, we get one last look at the true
hero of this film, that goddamn feather. Aside from the Martin Luther King assassination
and the Abraham Lincoln assassination, Forrest Gump features nearly every significant social or political event of the 60s and 70s. But whereas everyone around Forrest is engrossed by all that political mumbo jumbo, Forrest is oblivious, “Sorry I had a fight in the middle
of your Black Panther party.” singularly focused on the thing
he best understands: love. “Forrest, you don’t know what love is.” Yes he does, Jenny! The defining characteristic of the
film is its perspective. Through the eyes of an innocent simpleton,
we see an idealized vision of Earth that ignores grim social realities,
like a pair of cinematic beer goggles. When Forrest talks about the Vietnam War,
he’s all sunshine and lollipops. “The good thing about Vietnam, there
was always something to do.” With Jenny, he sees a pretty, pretty princess, even though in reality, she’s a pretty, pretty big mess. Young Forrest runs through
picturesque Southern landscapes, and moments later, breezes past a
prison chain gang like it ain’t no nevermind. He has an entire conversation with Lieutenant Dan “Lieutenant Dan! Ice cream!” before the camera reveals he lost his legs. Forrest still sees him as a whole man, apparently unaware that human beings can’t regrow their limbs. “Magic legs.” What’s more, Forrest may be raising a kid that isn’t his. Jenny has a history of emotional manipulation, and could have just decided to call
him once she got sick and needed help. “I’ll take care of you, if you’re sick.” Her “get out of parenthood free” card, if you will. Yet Forrest sees it as high
romance, as does the audience. In fact, it is entirely possible that
Forrest is an unreliable narrator, “That tops em all!” something I find utterly deplorable. Much of the story depends on his memory, which is idealized and perhaps a bit faulty. “You know it’s funny what a young man recollects.” In both instances where Jenny tells Forrest to “run, Forrest, run,” everyone is wearing the same clothes, except Jenny, who only buys designer shit. Either this is magical realism, or
Forrest’s mind is conflating the two memories While with his platoon in Vietnam,
he recalls unnatural weather shifts, made all the more suspect when immediately punctuated by an enemy attack. And if we can’t trust a man to accurately report meteorological activity, we can’t trust him for anything. In any case, as the great philosopher
Forrest Gump’s mom says, Life is like a box of chocolates.
“You never know what you’re gonna get.” But if you look at the world through Forrest Gump’s eyes, you can bet it’s going to be sweet. And knowing my luck, it’ll
probably have fucking coconut. For Earthling Cinema,

The Dystopian World of 1984 Explained


In the 1940s, George Orwell published a novel that illustrated a dystopian future. Well, future at the time. (wouldn’t be near future?) In the year 1984, the world has taken an unrecognizable shape. (You mean the world is now a cube?) All remnants of what used to be now destroyed as the 20th century took a horrendous turn. Orwell imagined a world where totalitarianism reigned, (ok) individualism was dead, and reality and history was simply a matter of opinion. (So that means I can change history with my own opinion?) Of course, this never happened, as it was just fiction. (Thank god) But the novel 1984 has resurged in popular culture, because many have made connections between this dark society and our own. (Don’t all governments do this?) Orwell never saw the rise of the internet or the policies of the 21st century, But his novel has been treated by some as almost a foreshadowing. Constant surveillance of every citizen by INGSOC – Constant surveillance by every government against its own citizens – Those sort of connections. ( But don’t all governments do this?) And this has only gotten more popular as more compare this dystopian society and our own. This video isn’t meant to compare our society and Orwell’s – This video is simply a summary of the politics, history, and world in the scenario Orwell crafted. (We’re listening) Unsurprisingly this is going to have some spoilers as this video fully flushes out the world and society of 1984. (Spoiler Alert!) Let’s start off with some history (So I’m in school now?) How does the world become THIS? In Orwell’s novel, the 20th Century is one long tragedy. The potential of humanity and its great path of civilization is entirely squandered in just a few decades. (Wow person who did this must be powerful) Since the novel was published in 1949, it’s not surprising this is where the future begins to go downhill. It all started after World War II and the dawn of the Cold War. (Soviet Union vs USA right?) The precursor division of the world already has begun to be seen. (So people predict the future?) For us, in the 21st century, we know how it ends. Soviet Union falls, nuclear war never happens, etc. But in Orwell’s timeline, there is no decades-long tension of the Cold War between America and Russia. Instead sometime in the early 1950s, World War III breaks out. (Is there a Soviet Union version of Hitler?) Nuclear bombs were used on major cities around the world. (Why wouldn’t Japan be affected? They got nuked, why not again?) Including cole custer, but not London. (Is that a county? City? State?) All we know is Britain was nuked multiple times. (LONDON BRIDGE IS FALLING DOWN!) This was probably around 1954. During the bombings, the Soviet Union invaded all of mainland Europe, (You see why you don’t invade Russia now Hitler?) as its army swept even into the Iberian Peninsula. (Where is that?) The British Iles became the last bastion on the continent. In the aftermath of the war, the West unified (Does the USA become even stronger?) as the United States and the British Commonwealth united into a single country. (Yep) The United States, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Britain formed to create (Sorry for no pictures :P) Oceania. Oceania then went on to Annex Latin America. (That’s Mexico down to South America right?) After this, history gets a little bit fuzzy. (So there is bears everywhere? Or something furry?) What we do know is that because of the traumatic events of the war, unrest occurred in Oceania and the Soviet Union. (REVOLUTION… I think) Sometime after 1954, Oceania fell into Civil War, between capitalism and a new homegrown ideology. This war, by 1984, is referred to as The Revolution. This new ideology won, and under this victory formed itself into a single party, INGSOC. We’ll talk about this in a second, (But I want to now!) but first let’s discuss the rest of the world. (Fine) Sometime in the 1950s and 60s, simultaneous revolutions occurred in the USSR and China. Neo-Bolshevikism united Europe in Russia (What is Neo-Bolshevikism? ) into Eurasia; while China, after fighting amongst itself for a decade, finally formed into Eastasia. (A decade long civil war?) under the nicely named ideology called, Obliteration of the Self. (Sounds like a suicide party) This history that you just learned is something that no citizen in Oceania would know about it, which is a good way to introduce you to this dystopian world. By 1984, the world is divided between these three nations. Oceania, Eurasia and Eastasia. All in a state of perpetual war over an area called, the Equatorial Front. North Africa through the Middle East, India, and Southeast Asia is constantly fought and interchanged between the three superpowers. We’ll get back to that later. Even though the history of the early 20th Century, by 1948, would only be decades ago. They might as well have been thousand. The nations, history, people before INGSOC are simply myths, and what exists is a society that is totalitarianism to its extreme. First, welcome to Britain. Except if you’re a citizen, you’ve never known it as Britain. You know it as Airstrip 1. For many, Britain is a distant memory. The party’s grip on the mind is so powerful What’s once was an unquestionable fact, like a name, is similar to a faint dream you question if it even happened, if it was ever real at all, then you forget about it. This is the most prominent attribute of Oceania: the control of information to such an extent that Facts are not Reality. and reality, can be changed simply on the whim of Big Brother, and the party, INGSOC. INGSOC controls all. INGSOC seizes all. To say it changes society is an understatement, INGSOC destroyed society, and remade it into something where only IT can thrive. Western Civilization is basically dead. Now is only a civilization that exists purely for the party to rule without question. How exactly it did this? We don’t know. Now when I say “party”, INGSOC isn’t a party like the Democrats, Republicans or even Nazis. It’s more like a society within a society as its own separate culture and rules from the majority of the population. Oceania is split between three main classes: the Inner Party, basically the secretive heads of the state, is only 2% of the population; followed by the Outer Party, the bureaucratic, but still devoted educated people, which is 13%; and then everyone else, the Proles, the uneducated, easy-to-manipulate simpletons who live in poverty, never knowing any better. Think of it like the ruling classes of Westeros, they have their own issues and culture, while the masses are simply the mundane peasants nobody really cares about. The Inner and Outer Party is divided between four main sections: the Ministry of Peace, who wages war against Eurasia or Eastasia, depending on who it is at the time; the Ministry of Love which shuts down opposition and close descents; the Ministry of Truth, the propaganda arm of the party, “propaganda” is to put it lightly. This purpose of the party is to rewrite, invent, or destroy any conflicting bit of news and history that goes against the party. News stories tell of war heroes who in actuality don’t exist, that sort of thing; the Ministry of Plenty, deals with economics and rations, it decides who gets what, and what resources must be cut back. Every ministry is housed in pyramids that tower over the London Skyline, 300 metres in the air, or roughly a thousand feet tall. And Oceania, the only one thing that matters, is INGSOC. Since the Proles are too uneducated to matter and are easy to manipulate by either nationalistic pandering, or to create a fake crisis. The party only really has to worry about its own stability to survive, so it doesn’t really monitor or care about the majority of the population. The party only has to worry about its own stability to survive, like a human body, it remains healthy by purging out the harmful educated elements, and those not entirely loyal to the ideology. Decades ago, there were mass purges in the 50s and 60s inside the party. INGSOC removed every threat of the old world to solidify itself among fanatic new supporters by cutting off the population of both the Party and masses from history. INGSOC is able to have a monopoly on facts, for example, the party says it invented the airplane. This is simply fact now, and everyone believes it. The Ministry of Truth rewrites or destroys any evidence of this not being the case. Those in the party who openly questioned this simply disappear or are sent to the Ministry of Love for re-education. Continue in mass until for the most part, it’s a fact amongst the population, that the party did invent the airplane. This is a process, how Orwell describes this, is that simply through the progression of decades, INGSOC was able to normalize attributes that haven’t existed in the West for centuries. Class divided, Ueducation, Mass attrocities Censorship these are allowed to be commonplace because anyone who didn’t agree with it, is either to unimportant or dead to care, then solidify this base with youthful and nationalistic young adults, and you’ve got a healthy future for your ideology. INGSOC ideology runs so deep, children are more likely to openly report their own parents for thought crimes. INGSOC recreated culture, crafted new terms to allow only IT to exist. A “Thought Crime” is anything that goes against the policy of the party If you commit a “Thought Crime”, you can be vaporized by the thought police, simply disappeared. And when I mean disappear, I mean it is now a fact, that you are never a person, an Unperson. This isn’t like kids giving Jimmy the silent treatment. This is everyone simply forgetting there ever was a Jimmy, and forgetting that they forgot. The mention of your existence somehow by your family, coworkers, is now a thought crime in itself. Documents are changed or destroyed, so that there is no evidence you ever did exist. Not that you did, Jimmy. This is how INGSOC is able to quell the sense This term comes from the official language of the party “Newspeak”. It’s technically just short in English, but it’s entirely designed to control the use of words that may be threatening to the party simplistic terms like “duckspeak”, “crime think”, “black white”, by limiting language to small bits, it makes debate controllable, or refutable. INGSOC simply has a monopoly on political discourse because it made the words up. In 1984, this goes deeper than a weird language. Brainwashing is a cultural manifestation that goes down to the personal level Reality and history itself can be changed with the bureaucratic stroke of a pen, and nobody thinks that that stroke ever happened. This is “Doublethink”, a Newspeak term to hold two conflicting beliefs, and hold both as equal, neither are canceled out, both are believed. This is best emulated by the ongoing war in the book . The Party tells the public that Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia, even if just a few years ago the enemy was Eastasia. East Asian bombs rained on the city, but everyone believes it was Eurasia because big brother and the party said so. Eurasia was always the enemy. East Asia was always the ally. This can change on a whim. History and information would be rewritten by the party to reflect any new change. It’s not a debate to the people. It was just always this way. It would be like changing colors. The sky is blue, but the party says the sky is now red, so you believe it’s red, not say or pretend. You with all your heart know for certain that the sky has always been red. Never even considered the change happened. This is another Newspeak term called “black white”. There are a lot of terms. Why does this happen? Is everyone stupid? Well if you go by demographics, yeah. It’s not this simple though This world is all these people have ever known. Think of North Korea, actually, just apply all this to North Korea. Kim Jong-Il must have got inspired somehow. You can say whatever you want when you raise generations to worship you. so what is INGSOC even? Is it fascist? Socialist? Totalitarian? Green party? Does it have specific policies? What’s its views on states rights? INGSOC in itself is a conundrum, a product of “Double think”. Officially, INGSOC is socialist. It teaches that the days before the revolution were horrendous, as the average citizen literally bowed to the capitalist, even going so far to say Capitalists could choose any woman to sleep with and nobody could do anything, then INGSOC came and forever made the world better. But at the same time INGSOC hate socialist, despises socialist policies, and this is openly admitted by everyone. Yet, nobody sees anything wrong with it because that’s the power of “Double think”. INGSOC ideology, if you can call it that, isn’t different at all than Eurasian Bolshevikism, or Eastasian Obliteration of the Self They’re basically the same society. Technological and social differences aren’t that far apart between the three. This is something that may be recognized by all of them, or, simply ignored. We don’t know. The relationship that continues between all of them is perpetual war. War is what runs this world. It’s what allows all three nations to survive. It’s a distraction it can rile up the uneducated masses. It’s a constant overshadowing force that Big Brother uses. INGSOC is the protector against the Eurasian Hordes or Eastasia, whichever. What are they fighting over? Resources? Well, they have all the resources they need since they control so much territory. Power? No one can really overtake the other, this is already established. Well, then what? Nothing, they’re fighting over nothing. The Equatorial Front and Polar Front, as mentioned earlier, was never anybody’s territory. It’s simply a giant fighting arena, where the economic waste from overloaded military buildup from all the countries is shipped to. Almost like venting out steam, borders constantly shift, countless soldiers died from territory which nobody wants, and the native people are enslaved and transferred between the three countries to work for the war machine which continues the cycle again. All the nations have nukes, they could easily destroy each other invade Britain or Europe, start wars, and Russia and China actually attacking the homelands. But that disrupts everything. It destroys the balance of power, and these heads of state like their power. So they constantly fight over the jungle and desert to keep what they have, to keep nationalistic fervor up. 1984 is a twisted world. Whether it’s realistic or not, doesn’t really matter. The consistent theme is information is important, and the control of that information is most important. That’s the biggest thing to take away from Orwell’s world. Everything INGSOC did was to make sure the population was loyal and too stupid to realize its manipulation. Going so far to make those who did manipulate believe they weren’t even manipulating in the first place. Does this tie in to our world? I’m not even touching that subject.

Buzzfeed Hates Men


[Ethan] Welcome back, guys. Today we have a very juicy video on deck, because me and Hila always agree. We always go into a video agreeing and being like: ‘This is cancer, let’s talk about it.’ [Hila] Yeah. [Ethan] But this time, I hope you’re ready to go to war. When I saw this video, I was like: ‘Yo, Hila, Look how stupid this is, we need to talk about it.’ And she looks at me and she goes: ‘Well, maybe it’s not that bad. Maybe we shouldn’t talk about it.’ And I was like: ‘Oh fuck, dude, we’re going to need to have some beef on camera right now.’ So we’ve been putting doing this video off for a minute, because Hila was like: ‘This is a real issue.’ [Hila] It is an issue, but the video is ridiculous, which is why we kind of agree. [Ethan] We kind of agree. The issue is, by the way, “Manspreading” So manspreading, if you don’t know, is when a man is on a bus or a subway or any public place, and apparently, according to these women on Buzzfeed, yes, it’s Buzzfeed! All men sit like this. By the way, what’s the deal with how women take up every fucking seat with their bags? I’ve seen more women taking up fucking empty subway seats with their fucking purses, than I’ve seen men spreading their legs. [Hila] I have never seen that. [Ethan] Yeah, you know exactly what I’m talking about. I told you I’m going to war. Let’s go to war together! Let’s jump right in to this Buzzfeed exclusive, ’10 Exciting Ways to Make Men Look Like Little Bitches’. [Kuwilileni] ‘My balls, I don’t want my balls sticking to my legs.’ [Ethan] First of all, fuck off. It’s not about balls sticking to legs. It’s about literally smashing my balls and testicles. Like, I see dainty little girls sitting on a subway like this. They sit like this and God bless them, good for them. I have shit here! I can’t, it’s smushing my junk! I gotta sit like this [Hila] I agree with that, okay. [Ethan] Like, by the way, and look they’re showing. That guy is sitting, like, pretty fucking reasonably, and there’s plenty of space on that bench. *Ethan coughs* [Ethan] I’m like 4 seconds in and I’m already pissed off I’m already straight triggered, Buzzfeed. And you, and you let it happen. You were right there with them. [Hila] I’m triggered too, because I can’t stand Buzzfeed. [Ethan] Well, I see your point, because you’re like: ‘We can have a normal conversation about this without making it sound like men need to be beheaded and their heads put on stakes.’ [Hila] Exactly, they make it so extreme. [Ethan] That being said, you’re wrong. [Hila] It’s like when social justice warriors ruin feminism. [Ethan] Right. [Hila] I care about feminism, but then there’s these extreme ones that completely ruin it for everyone. [Ethan] Are you “femalesplaining” me right now? [Hila] Yeah. [Ethan] Do you know when a female explains something, that’s really condescending? No, you’re right. I completely agree with you. [Tan] Manspreading is when a man spreads his physical body to take up as much space as humanly possible. [Ethan] “Take up as much space as humanly possible.” The clips show men sitting in my opinion, reasonably. [Hila] Yeah, I agree. I agree which is why it’s so annoying [Ethan] As much space as humanly possible! Implying that I’m sitting on the subway like “This is all me!” [Hila] She’s talking about it like they decided to do it on purpose. [Ethan] Yeah, yeah. [Hila] ‘Let’s see how much space I can take.’ [Ethan] ‘Let’s see how many women I can piss off today on the subway ride. That’s what I’m thinking about.’ [Kuwilileni] The people around you are relegated to a very small portion [Ethan] That one’s pretty bad, that one’s pretty bad. [Hila] That happens though. [Ethan] Yes it happens… [Hila] That’s my point! [Ethan] Okay, that’s fine. [Hila] I won! [Ethan] This guy’s a douchebag. They’ve showed like five guys and only one of them has been kind of outrageous. [Hila] Yeah I, I agree. I think most men are pretty good about this and they’re not that, like, this is ridiculous. [Ethan] Thank you. Thanks for saying that. [Kuwilileni] But the key to manspreading is not noticing. [Chelsea] We grow up on two different tracks people who manspread just are socialized not to worry about it. [Ethan] OK! These guys are sitting like this because they’re being really respectful. Look at this guy on the right He’s sitting away from the person next to him, so he doesn’t intrude on their space. This is a nice guy And you’re showing him like “Oh fuck this, Fuck you, Tan! With your edgy hipster hat. [Hila] Well she’s just… [Ethan] She’s just what? “Womansplaining” me? Yeah, I know what Tan’s doing. [Hila] I mean, it’s Buzzfeed, you need to blame Buzzfeed not her. [Ethan] No, I blame Tan. It’s like, yeah, when the Nazis, ok, said ‘I was just following orders’, What does Tan say? You know what I mean? It’s the same exact shit. [Tan] I have so many vivid memories as a child of my mum telling me to close my legs. [Ethan] Close your legs? Maybe that was about something else, Tan. I have sooo many vivid memories of my mom telling me to close my legs Tan, listen, this is about manspreading. I dont know what traumatic shit you’ve been through but leave that out of it. Why do you always have you legs open, Tan? Close your legs! (Tan in the background) as a child, my mom telling me to close my legs (Ethan) You’re disgusting Tan, close your legs! The whole family can see (Tan) my legs (Ethan) Close your legs, Tan Tan, would you close your legs for Christ’s sake? (Tan) memories as a child of my mom telling me to close my legs I kind of secretly hope to annoy (zooms in) some men That’s my first train trip as a manspreader, I just feel like a monster already. How can you do this every day without being conscious of it? (Ethan) Okay (Hila) Okay (Ethan) You are being an obnoxious person. (Hila) That is not manspreading, that is just like (Ethan) That’s just being an obnoxious person.
(Hila) Yeah. (Chelsea) I just manspread on the bus for maybe a five minute ride for the first time and it wasn’t even half full and I was already getting glared at so I think that this is gonna be a kinda long week. (Ethan) Can you at least acknowledge that men have fuckin twigs and berries between their legs. Like if I cut off my dick and balls, which is apparently what you want me to do, I could happily sit with my thighs closed (Day Two) (Tan) It’s day two of manspreading and I forgot that I have to do this (Ethan) How about purse spreading? Let’s make a Buzzfeed video about purse spreading No, womanspreading, with their huge fucking purses ok I don’t know what’s with women, why they think they have to bring the whole kitchen and the kitchen sink with them in their purse ok not my problem. Put it in your fuckin’ lap next time. Womanspreader *Hila chuckles* I don’t know about that Dude, that’s real, y’all know that one’s real [Kuwilileni] Whenever a woman takes up space She’s considered bossy, she’s considered agressive There are a lot of stereotype surrounding black women And whether or not we’re angry or dominant And so maybe a lot of the reasons why I do minimalize my presence is because I don’t wanna be perceived Or engage with those stereotypes [Hila] You gotta acknowledge that you’re wearing a dress And to stand like- yeah, there’s women stereotypes and all that but you’re wearing a dress [Ethan] That’s such a good point [Hila] And you’re opening up your [Ethan] your crotch [Hila] your crotch [Ethan] I mean I [Hila] Yeah it’s weird [Ethan] Yeah, it’s weird And I like [Hila] not because you’re a woman, because you’re wearing a dress [Ethan] you just got slam-dunked by one of your own [Tan] what is it between their legs that’s so important [Ethan] DICK AND BALLS!!! It doesn’t fit, you can’t squish it, it’s not comfortable What is- what?? [Hila] That was really stupid [Ethan] god [Tan] what is it between their legs that’s so important, that it requires two to three seats When there are kids, families, women and elderly people standing up [Hila] that- ok no one does that [Tan] that it requires two to three seats [Ethan] literally fuckin’ Hulk Hogan could lay out Toe to- toe to tip And not take two to three- maybe he’ll take three seats [Tan] Women are expected to be quiet, small and almost invisible, whereas men [Ethan] dude, this guy is doing his absolute best How are you gonna talk shit on this guy [Hila] I think maybe they’re just frustrated because men just end up taking more space [Ethan] but they don’t acknowledge the biological need They just frame it as “All men are monsters and need to be castrated” We need to cut their dicks off so they can close their legs [Hila] Yeah [Ethan] Just like my mom used talk me- talk to me about all the time [Tan] many vivid memories as a child of my mum telling me to close my legs [Ethan] Tan, would you close your legs for christ’s sake [Tan] Women are expected to be quiet, small and almost invisible, whereas men can be those boisterous slobs And it’s all good [Chelsea] Today [Ethan] How can you show this in good conscience and be like “All men are fucking monsters Here’s a drunk homeless guy taking a nap on the bus [Hila] Yeah that’s insane [Ethan] He’s not even manspreading, he’s just fucking passed out [Hila] Something is wrong there, but it’s not, it’s not the manspreading [Ethan] The guy clearly- yeah, the problems go deeper than manspreading at this point [Tan] I’ve not enjoyed this week at all. The very first day where a group of people came on that were going to a game And they were all desperate for a seat and I was taking up three seats [Ethan] That’s not manspreading that’s just you being a fucking asshole! [Hila] this is so stupid [Ethan] How is that manspreading, your legs are closed, you’re just being a fucking dick You’re not even following the own- your only rules of your experiment And by the way, I have seen women, believe it or not, sitting like that on the bus or subway It happens to both genders *Ethan coughs* [Tan] To be forced to manspread really showed me how up your own ass you have to be as a person to not be conscious of those around you [Ethan] So uh, today I’m doing a manspreading experiment I wanna behave like all men do and just this is how all men sit on the subway Yo- yo, what the- yo, what the fuck Yo get out of here! [Tan] Be forced to manspread really showed me how up your own ass you have to be as a person [Hila] She’s gonna win employee of the week at- [Ethan] yeah, Tan is gonna win employee of the- of the year at BuzzFeed probably She’s gonna be like “You triggerred males so hard with that video that we are giving you this statue of penis and balls because you’ve apparently never seen one before and we just wanna let you know what they look like” [Hila] “You did such a great job missing the point. Exactly what we were looking for.” Promoted [Ethan] I’m jealous of women ‘Cause sometimes I see you in really tight-fitting pants And you’re sitting there and you’re really cute little like, put-together and you don’t take up a lot of space like they’re complaining about And I’m like dude, I’m- I’m actually jealous of that, because I want to [Hila] I wouldn’t want to have something in between my legs [Ethan] Women try to sympath- like I know you have periods and give birth which I have full respect for and God Bless you for that but try to at least empathize that you have like this junk in between your legs all the time And it’s very sensitive stuff too Like you get punched in the balls the wrong way, you will puke The pain is so severe Like I’m just sayin’, you- you guys have gone about this in such- in such bad way that frankly all the respect I had for BuzzFeed is now gone I went from zero to zero [Hila] *chuckles* yeah [Kuwilileni] The man that’s taking up too much space on the bus, on the plane, on the bench we see, you don’t need that much room To the young women out there, I would say “You should definitely be aware of your surroundings if there’s something that you want, if there’s something you wanna say, if there’s a position that you wanna hold. Take up that space. You deserve that space.” [Ethan] Um, what a message of empowerment How does that make you feel, dude? [Hila] It made me feel like next time I’m on a train I should lay over three seats You kind of take up a little space here [Hila] Well she said I need to be more confident Take up that space! [Ethan] Why are you tak- Why are you putting your legs on my lap You have plenty of space on your chair I don’t understand You deserve that space! [Hila] Well I deserve it [Ethan] Why, what do you mean? [Hila] I am a uh- a woman BuzzFeed said that I deserve it and I should be empowered [Tan] I have so many vivid memories as a child of mom telling me to close my legs [Ethan] Well BuzzFeed says it’s true then I better fucking just Here you go dude, make yourself at home This is how everyone needs to sit on the subway from now on So men make sure to offer your shoulders and leg space to all women as reparation for the manspreading that has taken on by our kind Thank you so much to Lootcrate for sponsoring us and hooking it up with that meme juice Lootcrate is a suscription service that sends you a box of goodies every month Next month’s theme is Space and includes goodies from Mass Effect, Destiny and XCom If you guys would like next month’s Lootcrate Make sure to visit the link in the description : lootcrate.com/h3h3 Make sure to use the code h3h3 to get 10% off your space crate Last month was magic and take a look at this cool ass doctor strange toy and one of my all-time favourite movies: Big Trouble in Little China Thank you guys so much for watching and thank you to lootcrate for hooking up that meme juice and sponsoring our video See you guys next time [H3H3 Production Theme Song by MajorLeagueWobs]
