I have to say two things about this interview.
The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, is amazing. I can think of few casters, who have consistently pulled in guests as varied and interesting, as the
assortment of folks that Mr Rogan has had on his show.The appearances of Elon Musk, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Paul Stamets, to name but a small few, are
some of my favourite content on the entire internet, but besides that Rogan has also had huge names in entertainment, politics and journalism, on his
show, having great discussions that really get to the heart of matters.
Whether they serve to show a persons true nature for good or ill, I know of few settings in which people in the public eye, are as open and
comfortable with being themselves, as when sat down with Joe Rogan, talking about what interests them over a drink and occasionally a smoke. Mr Rogan
has done a stellar job of creating the atmosphere necessary for those people to have totally real conversations, in a relaxed enough manner that the
viewer or listener gets a real sense of what really makes them tick, and I think that is often overlooked, until something like this, or the Musk
episode gets broadcast.
On the subject of Tulsi Gabbard, from everything one can know of her, including but not limited to the contents of this podcast episode, there is an
awful lot to like. For a start, she is committed to the place she seeks to represent in her official capacity, to solving its problems, to working out
those fine details that make the difference between well intentioned clusterbang, and successful application of resources with ideal or close to ideal
results. She is also more than aware and ready to publicly confront, the fact that when it comes to getting things done that NEED doing, she will
encounter resistance from all quarters, including within her own political party. She knows that the whole mess is corrupt, and has no capacity to
either ignore or accept as forgone conclusion, the corruption she sees in operation. She strikes one as the sort of person who intends to do
everything she can to solve that problem, to improve the system for the future.
She is not afraid of being honest, as so many people in the political world are, about the dysfunctions of her party, willing to confront and conquer
that problem if given half a chance to do so. There is an awful lot to respect about her approach to these matters, her forthrightness and realism.
She understands intrinsically that representing the people and the place you are voted into power over, means confronting and solving problems like
that, and this is refreshing, because so many people before her have bent over and accepted these things as a fact of life, without taking the time or
using the effort necessary to tackle them.
I think she shows great promise for the future, and I wish her every success in building a more transparent, more people powered party, and indeed a
more people powered future for her country in the time to come.
