Investor 0:00To get some other people who might be on the fence out there, it took me a while to buy into the concept of buying out of state. And that’s really one of the things that I really attribute to you guys all the podcast and then just kind of working through that and how the numbers worked and
Investor 0:15the comfort level of it.
Investor 0:16But you know, one of the things that I think the best for me is, after talking extensively with him, I think he might have paired me up with, you know, like almost like a match. com like he paired me up with the perfect local market specialist to fit my personality and my investment philosophy. And so I kind of attributed to him, but I’m very happy with the way the transactions go and the way the interactions kind of all fluidly occur with me and a local market specialist and it really has been a pretty seamless process.

Today we’re going to be talking with author Sally cone, about the opposite of hate the opposite of hate. So we’ll dive into that in just a moment. But I gotta tell you, I’m coming to you from today from Phoenix, Arizona. flew in last night. Nice to be back here. I really, I think this is one of my favorite places to live. Don’t live here anymore. But I did for six years as I sort of have been on this journey since 2011, of exploring the country and trying to live in a few different places. But hey, I’m saying it’s nice to be back here, even though it’s going to be 108 degrees today Yikes. 108 degrees. But you know what they say? It’s a dry heat, right? It’s a dry heat. Anyway, I am also very happy today because I just closed a nice real estate deal. This is of course for my own portfolio. And I tell you one of the things I am going to discuss on the upcoming mastermind cruise coming up in October Jason hartman.com slash Cruz is I’m going to discuss getting your portfolio into Bigger deals, sort of this process of graduating from single family homes to larger properties. It’s good and bad, it really is a mixed thing. Of course, you have more, I don’t want to say leverage, because technically don’t have more leverage, because the financing isn’t as good. But you have more leverage in the sense that you’re just dealing with bigger numbers. And when you’re dealing with bigger numbers, of course, you can magnify your returns. In that sense, the incredible value of how to strategically use 1031 tax deferred exchanges has just been, I mean, that has just been a godsend in my life. Because every time I’m selling out of a highly appreciated property, I’m going into the next deal with all of my capital. You know, I don’t have to give any to the government. The government says, hey, look, we’ll take a backseat. We’ll wait In case you cash out someday, if you never cash out, then they never asked for any money. It is. I mean, I talked about the 10 commandments of investing, and how you should only invest in tax favored assets. And how income property is the most tax favored asset class in America? Well, really in the world. No, in America, it’s the most tax favored in the world. It’s the best investment, no question worldwide. Get, I can address the tax laws of every other country or even like one other country, I can only address the US. Check with your CPA, check with your tax advisor because if they don’t understand the incredible power of income property, to just create this amazing tax free wealth, they’re just missing out. You need a new CPA. You need a new tax advisor. If they Get it if they’re not doing it themselves, really consider getting an expert who is doing it. Also some more good news, it looks like rates are going down a kin. Wow, wow, wow. It is amazing. You know, we’ve got just incredibly low rates. It’s illogical when you look at the broader picture of the broader economy, it doesn’t make sense rates should not be this low. It’s artificial. But hey, so what take advantage of it as an income property investor, you can take advantage of that. By the way, one of our newer clients said to me the other day, hey, there’s just not enough properties on your website. And I said, I couldn’t agree with you more. Nowadays, you can’t do the job by going to Jason Hartman calm and clicking on the properties link. You’ve got to be engaging with our investment counselors who can help you find the deals before they even come on the market. Okay, before they’re even listed as available on the marketplace, that’s what you’ve got to be doing in this very constrained inventory market. You’ve got to be working with an investment counselor. And it’s easy and it’s free. So just go to Jason Hartman calm and fill out any of the forums on our website, express your interest, and one of our investment counselors will contact you, and they will be happy to help you.

You have really helped us carve a whole new niche in the marketplace. There are many copycats, but I got into this investor only side of the business in 2004. And there are people out there who are trying to claim that they’ve been in the business that long they’re liars. They’re just lying, liars, liars, liars. Don’t put Leave him. Check it out. It’s really true in our case, but not the others. As far as real estate experience. When I was in the traditional real estate business, of course, I sold many, many properties and represented many investors, buying and selling properties over many, many years. But working 100% exclusively with investors in this business model started back in 2004. As I was selling my traditional real estate company to Coldwell Banker, took about a year to negotiate that deal. And in that timeframe, I was looking for my next venture and I was thinking I might just retire might just not do anything. I don’t think that would have been a good choice because I, I think that the you know, As the old saying goes, idle time is the devil’s workshop, right? We’ve got to be interested. We’ve got to be engaged in life. We got to be doing things. Regardless of whether or not we’re financially free. That’s kind of not the point. The point is to do things that you’re passionate about and to be engaged in life. The money is just sort of a byproduct. And it’s a way of keeping score. And it’s a way to know that you, you know, you are financially free, it’s a nice, it’s a very nice feeling. Because when you’ve got all those real estate investments working for you, just 20 473 65 when you’ve got all of your tenants, essentially working for 40%, give or take 40% of the month. They’re working to pay you. Yeah. But you know, if their rent is somewhere, give or take around 40% of their income 40% of the time, they’re your employee. They’re working for you. I mean, who else are they working for? 40% of the time. Hmm, let me guess. Nobody, no other company. Okay. Apple computer doesn’t get 40% of their money. You know, even the IRS probably in their tax bracket and the state combined in their tax bracket because most of our tenants are in lower tax brackets, they don’t get 40% of their money. So you’re literally many times in a better position than the government. Yeah, that’s how much you get as the investor as the landlord. So income property, the most historically proven asset class in the entire world. Go to Jason hartman.com.

Jason hartman.com slash cruise for more info on that. Okay. Without further ado, this is a 10th episode show. So let’s get to our guests today and talk about a topic of general interest and general life success. So here we go.
Jason Hartman 9:55It’s my pleasure to welcome Sally cone. She is a CNN political commentator and Former Fox News contributor, host of the state of the resistance podcast, founder and CEO of the movement vision lab, an internationally recognized feminist, liberal activist, author of the new book, The opposite of hate, a field guide to repairing our humanity.
Sally Kohn 10:16Sally, welcome. How are you? Hey, I’m great. Thanks for having me on.
Jason Hartman 10:19Good. Good. It’s good to have you on you’re coming to us today from New York City area, right? I am indeed. Fantastic. Well tell us a little bit about the book and kind of the general thesis and let’s take it from there.
Sally Kohn 10:30I think a lot of people paying attention even nominally to the world around them today, I think we can all agree that we have a problem with take with the ways in which we historically in the past and habitually still today, demean and dehumanize other people or other groups of people because of their identity or their ideas. And it’s been a problem for really honestly, since our nation’s founding in the United States country that in so many ways was founded on and ever since has been shaped by hate by acts of hate, and institutionalization of hate. And at the same time, just because it’s been bad before been maybe worse in the past doesn’t mean it’s not bad enough, we have to do something about it now. And I think we can all look around and say that the level of toxicity in justice and equality otherwise it is nobody has reached a real boiling point. And we need to stop it.
Jason Hartman 11:27Like the word you just use other rising. That’s, that’s interesting. And you know, you’re certainly Right. I mean, it’s very fair statement that you talk about, like, okay, so you could certainly argue that it’s better than it was it many times throughout history, but that doesn’t mean it’s good enough, right. I mean, especially with the advent of social media, internet in general, you know, a lot of bullying, a lot of trolling. It’s sort of weird. I remember years ago, Sally when I was getting my driver’s license many years ago, actually. And I remember, I remember seeing this hokey little film and driver’s education. You just reminded me of it where it was like this Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde persona that really is part of all of us, where, you know, we’ll be nice polite people when we’re meeting someone in public. But we get behind the wheel of a car where we’re kind of insulated in this metal box. And we become a different person more aggressive and rage oriented. And you know, this was years ago, we are you could argue that it’s worse than that nowadays, for sure. And the same is true, I would argue of the internet, the internet allows people to do drive by shootings, you know, hit and run type commenting, right? This is definitely part of your overall worldview on this, isn’t it?
Sally Kohn 12:38Absolutely. Look, I mean, again, you’re right. We could argue or talk forever about when was it the worst and which side doesn’t work? So which group doesn’t work that are there. I have opinions on that. But to some extent, it doesn’t matter who did it first, or who did it worse that who writes don’t make it? Stop it? Who’s got it right, exactly. Or two wrongs don’t make a right I’m
Jason Hartman 12:57sorry. I said that backwards. Yeah,
Sally Kohn 13:00it works both ways, right? Because, you know, neither way shape or form doesn’t cancel out what you’re doing yourself and your own piece of the puzzle. And you’re exactly right. Again, if you compare online trolling and bullying or even online hate to mass incarceration or slavery or the genocide of American Indians, it’s not comparable in any way, shape, or form. And at the same time, it’s still bad enough that we should stop doing it in addition to the more severe and institutional forms of hate in our society. And the fact is that there is a way in which technology does tend to make us feel more anonymous and able to act out on those mean or hateful or uncivil impulses and, but again, it’s not just that we can’t also just blame the technology because those impulses are there they come out and other forms. They come out in more effective Actual forms and the way we run our businesses and teach kids in school and run courts and police systems. And so it’s about taking responsibility for and noticing and addressing and having honest reckoning with hate in all those different forms online and off.
Jason Hartman 14:17Yeah, we both agree, Sally, that the argument of it was worse in the past is not justify what goes on in today’s world. Right. I certainly agree with you there. I just want to say kind of a however, to that, though, when you look back around history and some of the stuff you mentioned about the US and the things that went on here and, and so forth. When you look around the world Back then, I mean, I don’t know. You know, there are many places around the world now where we still have slavery. We have all kinds of oppression of women, especially in the Middle East, you know, in Asian South Asian areas. I mean, I don’t know you know what, at least be fair to give you is some credit and the American Society some credit is? I’m not saying it’s perfect by any means. don’t hear that. Please don’t hear that. You know, but isn’t it better than a lot of places or no?
Sally Kohn 15:11Well, I mean, on some level, yes. On some level No. And on the third level, who cares? I mean, in other words, look, we’ve still never elected a head of state, whose woman and while several Muslim countries have, it depends on sort of how we’re doing the measuring and also depends on to me, the question is, why does that matter? That I think one of the reasons we often certainly in our political discourse in the United States we tend to do this sort of, well, we’re better than thing is to take away any sense of responsibility for doing better. Right like the past. Why don’t we be the absolute best at this and the entire friggin universe like let’s you know, as opposed to any sense of resting on our laurels, and again, I think when you actually scratched the surface of that, you know, look at the scandals we have with with me too, and with harassment and assault of women, by men at all levels of industries and businesses, right? That shouldn’t happen in a country that’s supposedly, as great as ours look at the epidemic of police violence against black and brown people in our country that shouldn’t happen in a country that has our values. And that says, We’re as good as we are. So we still got our own work to do.
Jason Hartman 16:27So. I mean, you would have to argue that that is institutionalized, right? Because there’s always a one off, there’s always a Rodney King, right? That’s always gonna you get 320 million people together, or 7 billion, and there’s always going to be bad apples, right? There’s going to be some bad cops that do some bad things. But we have to be saying this is institutionalized, right? Is that what you would say?
Sally Kohn 16:54Well, yeah, I mean, I think the problem by and large is that hate inequality and just Whether it’s St. Louis race or sexuality, or gender, or religion or immigration status is indoctrinated within. And in fact, our institutions, our systems, our structures, our policies, our politics, our culture, we run businesses, the way we raise kids, I mean that in a larger sense of institutionalization, that it becomes sort of the air that we breathe, and that then gets exhaled into every facet of our existence. And at the same time, that’s done by people and the danger again, this is where, you know, I think these things do matter. And the idea that there are bad people is a very interesting idea. Right? And not to get too spiritual about this, but it is also has political ramifications. But you know, for example, one of the things I did in the book was I looked at examples of people, stories, people who had left extreme, extraordinary lives and hate behind one of those examples of both people and then a larger place, situation institution even that had managed to make that transformation is in Rwanda, where in 1984, they had the fastest genocide in history. 100,000 people killed in 100 days. And one of the things that sort of took my breath away that someone said to me in the book, as a philosopher says to me, you know, we don’t have mass atrocities because of a handful of psychopaths. There weren’t enough psychopaths in Rwanda, or in Germany or in Serbia, or you name it. We have mass atrocities because masses of people participate in them. The truth is we understand the institutionalization of hate. We understand that hate this is where we have to get beyond the sort of superficial notion of hate as the overt bigot or the overt racist or what have you, that we understand hate and it’s more extensive and nefarious, conscious and unconscious, big and small waist. Then we understand that this isn’t about good people or bad people. That’s the way we we push out the implications of this. And we say, Okay, I’m a good person. So I have nothing to do with this. Well, the truth is the reason we have the kind of extensive inequality and injustice we have in our world, and in our country, isn’t just because of bad people. It’s also because of good people. And when we’re talking about the institutionalization of hate, and inequality and injustice, and we’re talking about what good people are doing,
Jason Hartman 19:29whether they need to or not, yeah, well, there’s certainly a dangerous mob mentality. I don’t know that that’s specifically what you’re talking about here at all. But you know, I just want to point that out. The mob mentality is always a dangerous thing. There are just sort of subtleties in life that, you know, like the world view that people have that they don’t even know why they do things always. I mean, I certainly don’t I’ll talk about myself, you know, because, you know, we just come from a worldview and that’s the context in which we think and later than everything comes out of that right? But you know, maybe I probably should have asked you this at the beginning. Can you define hate it because your book is called the opposite of hate. So maybe by telling us the opposite is also a way to define. just define that if you would. I know it may sound like a very basic question, but
Sally Kohn 20:17it’s a great question. And I’m not defining it in a sort of colloquial sense of you hate brussels sprouts, or you hate country music or you hate your ex girlfriend, your ex boyfriend, that what that’s fine with me. That’s your own business. What concerns me is, as I alluded to before, the the history in the past and habits in the presence that we have individually and as a society, of demeaning and dehumanizing people, and especially certain groups of people because of their identity, or their ideas. That to me is what we should be concerned about. And the fact is, there are ways in which all of us are the terms of hate, and also the perpetrators of hate. We all fall on some end of both sides of that. And we therefore all have, we’re all part of the problem, we all figure out a way to be part of the solution.
Jason Hartman 21:14So give us some examples of like, which groups and, you know, maybe don’t give us the totally obvious examples that everybody probably should know if they don’t. But, you know, maybe some of these more subtle things we talked about. I
Sally Kohn 21:29think, I mean, one example is definitely partisanship right now in the United States, right. So, and this is what I think we can all locate ourselves in right now is not just you know, okay, I’m on this end, or that end of sexism or this end of that at those Islamophobia, whatnot. But we think about partisanship. And the reality is that in in the case of extreme partisanship, which more and more and more and more and more of us are falling into whichever side you’re on, you tend to not just disagree with the other side. But have a desire to destroy the other side and a certain Glee even at the prospect of their destruction or any evidence of their destruction and so you end up with situations where you’re questioning, you know where the right questions that patriotism or even belongingness in the American experiment of the left, you have the left characterizing the right as stupid as all hateful horrible right. So yeah, so you That to me is also a kind of hate it. So this other kind of is to use that word again. Other rising is extreme other rising and writing people off not based on any particular personal interactions, not like your ex who did whatever to you and you’re mad at them. This is I’ve written off groups of people who I didn’t even know because they belong to this political party or viewpoint or voted for this person. edits, making them just that. And then demeaning, dehumanizing, attacking, condemning them based on that narrow understanding of who they are.
Jason Hartman 23:11Yes. So you agree that this happens on both sides of the aisle? Certainly. Like you do. Right. Okay. No, just out of curiosity, and I’m sure you have an opinion on this sort of maybe depends which administration is in office right at the time, you know, which for eight years, we’re, we’re on. But does one side do more than the other? Is it worse on one side than it is on the other?
Sally Kohn 23:32Yes, it is. I happen to believe it is. I also happen to believe it doesn’t matter. In other words, who started it or who did it first? You know, as I alluded to, before, we could argue about that till the cows come home. You know, listen, what matters is that we stop it that we take in the part of the dynamic here. Listen, I’ll tell you how hate when I one of the things I found in this book, how hate works is that most people, by and large, don’t wake up in the morning, intending to be hateful. Most people don’t think that they’re hateful. Most people I think that that other side, those other people, they’re hateful, and anything that you do that maybe is, you know, less than kind is nonetheless justified because those people were hateful, they started it. And we feel that way about them. They feel that way about writing this even research, by the way that this is true of people we would think of as obvious members of overt hate groups like neo nazis and current terrorists, that
Jason Hartman 24:29ISIS and Al Qaeda don’t like radical Islam, right.
Sally Kohn 24:32I mean, I talked to a woman who worked in the army was a terrorist interrogator for the US Army in Afghanistan. She said, Look, most people believe that their motivations are good. They see the motivations was good. And so when we’re always fixated and focused on the other side, and what they’ve done to us and how hateful they are, how much they’ve wronged us or etc, etc, that they did it worse than first, then we never take responsibility for whatever our piece is of the problem even But to smaller p, right, whatever you believe, because if we’re only ever pointing fingers, we’re never actually solving problems.
Jason Hartman 25:06Yeah, definitely, definitely talk to us a little bit about feminism, if you would, I think one of the things that people really fail to distinguish, they sort of throw that word around. And they don’t distinguish the differences between first, second and third wave feminism. And I’d love you to talk about that, because you’re probably an expert, I assume. You know, I’d just love to hear a little bit more about that. Because I think our culture, really just sort of, you know, with me, we throw a lot of words around it. I just love to get your
Sally Kohn 25:36thoughts on it. In a way terms and definitions are one thing what they mean to us and what they come to mean in society is another No, but I have always thought of feminism. It is as a core idea that women are equal to men and should be treated equally. I’m not saying equal doesn’t mean the same. Right. But you know, it’s like saying, religion should be treated equally doesn’t mean they’re the same. Right, but they should be treated equally. And the recognition that as a society and feminism stems from the recognition that as a society and our culture, our business, politics, etc, we have not done that, that we have failed to do that, that, for instance, the reason that every single president we have elected in the entire history of the United States is not just because they were the most qualified of all the human beings, but because they were right that that was in fact deemed to be that they were we live in a society where we have historically in the past and still today, acted as though men are superior to women.
Jason Hartman 26:40But maybe we just haven’t. Maybe we just haven’t had the right female candidate yet. That’s kind of like saying we haven’t elected libertarian president either, regardless of their gender, I mean, right or No,
Sally Kohn 26:51wait. So you don’t think that the 45 presidents we’ve elected in history the united states were elected, not exclusively, not solely, but certainly in part because they Women?
Jason Hartman 27:00I don’t know the answer, but they’re the ones running. I mean, there’s a lot more that happens before the election. Right. There’s the primaries and going way down to the whole political career. And it’s only been a fairly recent phenomenon that women have really risen up in politics and public life. And, you know, I mean, we certainly had one that most of the country thought would win Hillary Clinton last time around, right. You know, she won the popular vote by fairly small margin, but she still wanted, you know, if the campaign had maybe strategized a little differently, she’d be President. I mean, there’s no doubt about that. Everybody thought she was gonna win pretty much I I know that’s a figure of speech, everybody, but you get the idea. It’s not like there’s a institutionalized conspiracy to bar women from participating in the system or is there I mean, I don’t want to know that there’s one on women for most of the United States history more of our history than not women weren’t allowed to vote. So that’s, that’s we fix that one.
Sally Kohn 28:01It hasn’t even been a century, this country that women have been allowed to vote. So that’s that’s not but for more of our country’s formal history than not women good book, that’s a fact. So that we could call that sort of overt institutional discrimination, right? Certainly. And at the same time, look, what we’re getting to here is when we talk about and you were you were alluding to it before, when you asked the question about sort of institutionalized hate hate to generalize forms. And that is to say that you’re right that there may not be as many thankfully, hopefully, there may not be as many people today, men and women, by the way, because when we talk about sexism, we talked about this something, as I said, was the air that you breathe, it’s the air we all breathe, the air I’m gonna breathe in, you’re gonna breathe, so that we’re both gonna end up walking into a voting booth as products of this long history and culture in the United States. Where we’ve been taught men are leaders, men are better leaders. We’ve been taught by history we’ve been taught by what we see we’ve been taught it by who runs the businesses, who is in positions of power. It’s what we’ve been taught. So you and I both breathing that air, we’re going to exhale that air we’re going to, it’s going to affect who we vote for. And I’m not saying it doesn’t mean that I won’t sometimes vote for a woman, you might not sometimes vote for a woman. But the pattern that history, it takes some toll on us individually. And as a society, you don’t just snap your fingers.
Jason Hartman 29:21History is context.
Sally Kohn 29:24To be leader to you, but then we all believe otherwise. That’s why and you need to actually do something about that. Okay. So history provides context. You’re right. I mean, like you said, You gave I love the the metaphor you just gave about, we breathe in the certain air and we breathe out the certain air and that’s context. So I get that. But isn’t that just like, going back to the example you gave before of it sort of doesn’t matter who started the fight or who’s more right or who’s wrong? I mean, yes, that is history. We all know that history is there. It’s been a long time. What do we do now though, you know, what do we do? Now that we vote for, you know, women to be president, even if she’s not the best candidate, like, should people feel guilty about that, that Hillary didn’t win? I don’t know. You know, I just kind of don’t know exactly where to go with that. It’s certainly women are not barred from the system today. Are they? Are they? I think, no, I think you’re right, that it shouldn’t sort of hamstring us and we shouldn’t be sort of lost and just lamenting how things have been. I agree with that. Yeah. Okay. But look, I also think that a realistic I mean, there’s there’s a much more complicated we’re going to run out of time on my end, but there’s no problem. Yes, sir. I get it. But it begins with to me It begins with luck. I would like us to get to a place where we didn’t argue as a whole, not just you and me. I mean, in general, where we didn’t argue about the reality of the hate and discrimination and inequality and injustice, those gotten us to this place, so that we can look at, for instance, people running for office, and who were more or less likely to vote for just just one tiny example here. And we can say Hmm, that is not just like we don’t get to start fresh at every moment that reality is in fact, contextualize by history. So the fact that for instance, we know from research, we don’t have to speculate on this, we know from research, you take the exact same resume, exact same resume, put a man’s name on top, put a woman’s name on top, send them out, the resume exact same resume, with man’s name on top, will get twice as many calls for interviews. Now, that is because of that air that we don’t breed that has been pumped through history, and funneling each of us that we all then exhale in various different ways, not always, consistently, not always exactly the same way. But to me, it would be great if we could get to a place where we acknowledged Look at this, this inequality and injustice, this hate is continuing to replicate itself whether we need it to or not. And instead of arguing about that reality, let’s get to a place where we’re debating how to solve it. I would absolutely love to have a debate with you sometime on the pay gap issue because I think
Jason Hartman 32:00that issue, although it’s, you know, the 77% concept, they miss a lot of points in that debate. I don’t know, there’s just a lot of and I know you don’t have time, but I would just love to talk to you about that sometime. I really appreciate a lot of your points I very much do. And I think you are right on so many things. I just think the only thing about this concept of Okay, it was the way it was idea that you brought up before does not mean it’s okay. Now, just because we’re doing better than other places or other times in history. You’re right. It’s not an excuse. I just think that it deserves a little credit, though. It’s kind of like a kid, you know, you got to reinforce the positive. Sometimes, and I don’t think America is a bad country. I think it’s a good country. I think it’s been surprisingly open. I mean, the civil rights movement with MLK, there were tons of white people supporting that, you know, and sometimes it just doesn’t feel like they get any credit. They’re all made out to be bad evil people, you know,
Sally Kohn 33:00Hold on a second, hang on a second See, I’m not making out anyone to be bad or evil. Right? That’s that’s the thing here is I’m not actually saying any of that is necessarily conscious. And by the way, look in the, you know, 1940s 1950s. And I, you know, a majority of white people opposed integration and majority of white people supported segregation. That’s the truth. Now today, majority of white people are opposed to segregation and to racial discrimination. That is progress. There’s no question. That’s progress. So yeah, we can pat ourselves on the back. And now, let’s move forward. Because I also don’t think by the way, there are good countries or bad countries, right? We all have the capacity just like people in countries and institutions and families, you can all do good things or bad things. The question is, do we rest on our laurels? How many of them we think we have? Or do we
