Lewis, never let your decision of which people to invite on your show be defined by the estimation of subscribers or unsubscribers. It's not about the number of subscribers that defines your success. If you truly have a mission and purpose with TSOG, then the last thing you should care about is (un)subscribers. Just follow you heart in bringing people on, not your head.
Keep up the good work! Great interview with Ben Shapiro. Very smart and authentic guy with a deep insight in how things work in life.
Thank you, Lewis! One of the more candid interviews I've heard with Ben, and you clearly asked questions that allow both his followers and haters to get to know him as a human (big fan of his anyway, but nonetheless, this was a very refreshing interview!) while still affording him a platform for speaking freely. Well done, brother!
There's a consistency with people on the right-wing side of the political spectrum in the USA, including Ben Shapiro: they all seem angry and agitated. At their president's rallies they chant to "lock up" their political opponents (Hillary, Andrew Gillum, Dianne Feinstein).. they're always going after groups like transgender people... their media is always fear-based, spreading hysteria about situations like the migrant caravan. Republicans and conservatives that I've met personally always seem like angry people and have confided in me hatred/distrust of groups of people based on their religion, skin color or sexual orientation. If you listen to right-wing talk radio or watch Fox News you discover just how much they operate in fear. Conversely, most liberals/progressives I've met are friendly people who simply want everyone treated with equal respect. There is a huge contrast. Everyone should think it is sick and bizarre how Republicans chant in the thousands to "lock up" their political opponents at their leader's rallies.
Can someone help me. I have a problem. I wake up in the middle of the night worried that while dealing with people at work I may have come across as a pretentious ben shapiro ass hole type of person. help me, how do I ensure I am never anything like this asshole?
We have a generation of cry babies but you're awesome for doing this with Ben. The people who unsubscribe because of having a guest that goes against your bias is ridiculous and people you don't need anyway. We all have bias so if we stick to it we become horrible people just like giving into Tribalism in politics. We care more about defending our side and promoting it's narratives than learning more about the other side and promoting the actual facts.
I love listening to Ben Shapiro's interviews and anyone who watches the first 10/15 minutes of this video will absolutely understand why. He does not try to impose his agenda or almost any of his ideals on anyone. He does, however, want everyone to stop viewing the people around you as those tearing you down for no reason.
I listened to this podcast episode on 100 mile road trip, and I have to say it's one of your best interviews yet. And I appreciate you not being apologetic about your guests. I don't agree with Ben on a lot of issues but I can respect his take on other issues. It's important for everyone to get different perspectives on life and politics.
I really like the talking points at the time 32:00 - 34:30. Specifically mentioning the fact that people no longer rely on their duty to take care of themselves. One day, do you think that those duties will inevitably surpass the so called "Rights" of the leftist definition of rights and actually become what "Rights" are supposed to be? Or do you think that they will constantly be a topic/argument piece within the political/social realm with no solution? I see the USA as so divided that the left and the right DO have two different meanings for TOO MANY different rights and duties of its citizens. What do you think? Thank you and great interview!
This is why the usa has the highest amount of drug consumption in the world. We let God outta of minds n hearts and replaced him with phones and drugs, and sex, and music, all great things by the way , but at the end of the day humans need a purpose.
Trade schools!! Learn how to put roofs on houses or learn how to pour concrete to build basements n sidewalks n driveways, or carpenters who build everything from houses to building or architects . More n more people dont want to work hard , people want to make 100,000 a year to do something that's not a money maker
+cookie First off, neither sturdy nor young mean flat, or disk. Second, Isiahia 40. The word used to describe the earth in Hebrew is Khoog or hug, which literally mean circle, but they are the closest word for sphere in the Hebrew language beside ball, and Khoog is often used in the Hebrew language in refrence to a Sphere. On top of that In Mathew 12, and Ephesians 9) it talks abou "in the heart of the earth", or "Jesus descending into the lower parts of the earth. A flat disk doesn't have a 'heart', and even if it did, you wouldn't have to 'descend' into it, if it was flat, or a disk. And that is only part of the Biblical evidence. But I won't start on the Scientific evidence because you have probably made your mind up that it's all hogwash.
+cookie First of, neither sturdy nor young mean disk. Second, Isaiah 40:22. The word there used is Khoog or ḥūḡ in Hebrew which literally means circle, but it is the closest word we have to Sphere, and is often used to describe a Sphere in the language. On top of that, the phrase "In the heart/lower parts of the earth is" is used in the bible (Matthew 12:4, Ephesians 4:9), and a Disk doesn't have a heart, and you wouldn't have to 'descend' into it, as is being described Ephesians 4:9. And that is only part of the Biblical evidence.
Unbelievable. All the comments in this optimistic and welcoming little corner of YouTube are polite and civil beyond my wildest imaginations. All 746 of you (so far) have managed to throw the controversies out the window in favour of a real, genuine gratitude for diversity and exploration. I am beaming on the inside and out. Love this!
I have recently started watching Ben Shapiro and I’m impressed with his intelligence, debating skills and ability to effectively communicate. I may not agree with everything he says because of my own experiences and background, but have a great deal of respect for him. Thank you for this interview to provide us a look into his background and life.
I'm not political at all but I have to say I really enjoy listening to Ben Shapiro and his thought processes. I mean I'm a Christian and DO believe Jesus Christ is Messiah and Lord and Saviour, but I always think it's good when people can discuss in a civilized manner with a healthy discord. We don't have to agree on everything, but it's important to treat people with love and respect. Thank you for this interview! :)
Hi Lewis, thank you for this lovely interview with Ben Shapiro. It felt very authentic and intimate. Seeing this personable and vulnerable side of Ben was really interesting and refreshing.
Best takeaway points:
1. never indulge in the expectation that others should solve your problems for you, your friends / loved ones can give you attention and listen to you share your problems and encourage you but ultimately you owe it to yourself to take responsibility for your life choices
2. have a healthy belief that people generally mean well and that just because someone disagrees with you it does not immediately make that person a bad person unless further evidence presents itself to be the case
3. having shared values (and being committed to upholding those values) is an important virtue for any meaningful relationship to blossom between people in a relationship, family or society
4. life may throw punches at you, so growing a thick skin is a great mindset to adopt to be more resilient… instead of spending time being angry at how someone might have mistreat you, invest that time reflecting on what you could have done better on your end
5. live life being authentic to yourself and strive to achieve success, not just to show to others or to prove the haters wrong, but to do it because you wish to be the best that you can be and to contribute to others the best you can
Wishing you and Ben blessed 2019 ahead! :)
Ben's logic is so sound and often profound as well. It's really something how he states things that are just very logical, and they give new insights and ways of looking at things. They seem obvious, but because of the hustle and bustle of life, you feel like you'd never think of them. Who needs to work on making robots when we have this?! Cloning should now be the next step. Great interview Lewis! I came across this due to Ben's Sunday Special with you, now you've made my Monday special! Thanks 🙂
Lewis, thank you for standing in the middle and being non-biased no matter how much heat you take; my respect for you has gone through the roof. There are so many of us standing in the middle...not left, not right, just good people trying to figure out the truth amongst continued non-sense...and this is why people like Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson are trying to educate us with some very pointed, difficult topics and truths....they are both brilliant. Again, thank you.
+Lewis Howes SOG I guess that your taking it back to his upbringing was significant. We tend to view people as fully formed humans from day one, and it really helps to see how he became the person he is. Another thing I really liked was the fact that you ended with verbally recognizing him for his gifts, which is a brilliant idea. finally I think that you gave him 'space' to deliver his ideas and didn't try to push your ideas on him, which I've seen interviewers do quite a bit.
So thanks again for this great interview 👍😊
It is good when logic and goodwill come together. This and the Mike Rowe interview were both very good. Integrity, judged over time, is a very appealing quality. Excellent interviewer qualities. Relating your own experiences gives the interviewee confidence in your ability to comprehend. Lewis, you have your own kind of intelligence.
Lewis, you were open and authentic about being bullied as a kid. I certainly hope you don't feel you need to apologize to anyone for for fear of their reaction, because that's people bullying you into only hearing what they want you to. I think you were keeping an open mind and you were willing to hear Ben out. That speaks to your authenticity as a person, and anyone criticizing you for that is just being a bully. I hope you don't let people's threats to pull their subscription dictate your future efforts to bring people who want to challenge the establishment to your table
...i would think the two biggest privileges you can have in american life are: 1. being rich. 2. being subject to the least amount of (negative) discrimination on the basis of varying factors (...fill in the blank...) that make up ones identity as an individual and citizen, whether one actually faces discrimination or not. ...after all, having privileges - in american life - are not necessarily synonymous with happiness; and isn´t that exactly what we all want? ...unless being rich and not being subject to particular forms of discrimination (...fill in the blank...) are some of the worst things that can happen to an american in america in 2019. #metoo
I hated this guy with a passion because I felt he was arrogant and a smart ass. But, after hearing this interview about his personal life and him opening up about how he grew up, definitely gave me a whole new prospective of him. I actually enjoyed listening to him on joe rogan. He actually makes a lot of great and rational points. Thank you Lewis for making me see this guy for who he really is.
+Lewis Howes SOG a couple of things... first Ben is very intimidating to a lot of people. He thinks and speaks lightening fast. Second, people are quick to judge but when you listen to him this show especially, he explains himself. Like logically. You did not back off or seem intimidated, you engaged him. He liked it too as he was engaged and reciprocated. People respect that!
Although foreigners may now invest in A-shares, there is a monthly 20 percent limit on repatriation of funds to foreign countries.
Performance of A-shares.
Since its inception in 1990, including a major reform in 2002, the index has seen great fluctuations. Overall, however, it has grown along with the Chinese economy. The years 2015 to 2016 were a particularly difficult period, with a 52-week performance of -21.55 percent as of July 20, 2016.
As China grows from an emerging market to an advanced economy, there is substantial demand for Chinese equity. Stock exchange regulators continue efforts to make A-shares more broadly available to foreign investors and have them recognized by the global investing community.
In June 2017, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index announced a long-awaited decision it would add stocks to its index. According to CNBC, MSCI will add 222 China A Large Cap stocks to its benchmark emerging markets index gradually beginning in 2018. The MSCI website reveals the stocks it will list include the Bank of China, China Merchants Bank, Guotai Junan, Ping An Insurance, according to a document on Tsingtao Brewery, SAIC Motor, Suning Commerce and Spring Airlines.
Current Dividend Preference.
Participating Preferred Stock.
Convertible Preferred Stock.
Cumulative preferred stock includes a provision that requires the company to pay preferred shareholders all dividends, including those that were omitted in the past, before the common shareholders are able to receive their dividend payments.
Non-cumulative preferred stock does not issue any omitted or unpaid dividends. If the company chooses not to pay dividends in any given year, the shareholders of the non-cumulative preferred stock have no right or power to claim such forgone dividends at any time in the future.
Participating preferred stock provides its shareholders with the right to be paid dividends in an amount equal to the generally specified rate of preferred dividends, plus an additional dividend based on a predetermined condition. This additional dividend is typically designed to be paid out only if the amount of dividends received by common shareholders is greater than a predetermined per-share amount. If the company is liquidated, participating preferred shareholders may also have the right to be paid back the purchasing price of the stock as well as a pro-rata share of remaining proceeds received by common shareholders.
