"chairman mao" Discussed on Sci-Fi Talk Time Capsule
"You are listening to sci-fi talks. Welcome back. Once again Spotlight has a frequent guest over the years here on Syfy talk. And that's in Brian Herbert who along with Kevin J. Anderson has written some Dune sequels and prequels wage here. We catch up on his new solo work. Brian is always it's great to talk to you and you know, they're you've been busy with with Kevin but you're also doing some cool things on your own as well. Why don't we start with little green book abramo and and kind of tell me how you know, what kind of leads you to tell that story? I thought I was at Cal Berkeley in the in the late sixties. When I I saw the Revolutionary movement going on there and I saw copies of Chairman Mao's Little Red Book on tables all over the place being sold and and it's I've always wanted to write something about my experiences at Berklee at the epicenter of this revolution. Of the spirit in the United States and so I thought well what if what if the the hippies the the far left group from Berkeley off? What if there was a futuristic group of them? And they took to the streets with anarchists as sort of the spearhead of their violent, but they took to the streets and they actually defeated the United States and all the government's in North and South America and set up the green States of America, which is a green Utopia in which people are forced to live on reservations for humans and the rest of their densely populated and all the rest of land then is green form is returned to Nature. So it's a Utopia and it's good for the planet. But if you're actually living it under those situations, it's not exactly a Utopia. It's more of a disco fever some people. So I'm talking about the idealism of of the environmentalists Dead. My hero is an environmentalist but things tend to go a little wrong on what when he tries to set this up bro cool, very cool. And so, this is inspired by your experiences. And the character was he based on any particular one the environmentalist wolterman Rama is a a bearded environmentalist. I'm very idealistic in essence chairman Mal but he's he's you know, his Mantra is is to do something for the for environment right? And so I noticed that the people that really believe strongly in green and the environment is sort of a religion to them, you know, they will deny it. So I I talk about the religious basis of believing in the environment and there's a lot of a lot to be said there, you know for for that belief, but what if it's taken to an extreme and what if what if these people that take over create a police state wage? It's enforced by Eco police ecological police and the Eco police were shiny green helmets and have green jackboots and and they're sort of Nazi like in certain things that they do but it's helping the planet. Yeah, so it it opens up a whole discussion and really when we try to call corporations now we get into voicemail Jo can't even reach a person and and I feel that corporations have pretty much a colonial eyes people. They're they're International corporations and they're just way we are the are the goal that we have to to Colonial eyes. And so they're sort of like the British Empire or some of the old Empires except that they have a different Source their pillaging us for resources. And so I thought well, you know, the left the far left has has a point these corporations are not behaving. Well people are smaller and smaller group are getting richer and wage. This isn't right. And so what if a revolution has the streets and balanced it out, but by the same token all corporations aren't bad. And sometimes they're all painted with the same brush em. So I do have some people that believe in property rights and and that sort of thing and that are actually not bad people in the book. So both sides.

"For their own gain punished. But a lot of people simply reporting neighbors and people worked for for past grievances. that. Merit the punishment which in the nineteen fifties. was. Violent beatings, public humiliation, and then finally execution. In the nineteen sixties and seventies reporting culture was employed again by Chairman Mao the Cultural Revolution this time you could be reported not just for something you've done, but for something he said for failed to say. People are encouraged report each other for behavior that's not ideologically pure students were encouraged to report their teachers for teaching non politically correct contents. Friends were encouraged to turn on one. Another children were encouraged to report on their parents for. Behavior. In the home. To This Day sociologists anthropologists who study Chinese communities always, report. An astonishing lack of trust among even small communities that that people don't trust their neighbors. When we usually talk censorship in China, we think of a government telling people what they can and can't say, but in China people also worry about censorship as a tool to pursue indebtedness and exact revenge you can report someone or in on them to the government to silence them or take out a grudge. So the boycott Xiaojun. Movement. Coalesce is a movement against reporting culture against people informing on. Each other or trying to shut each other up and at first some who is behind this? I think reporting people because of what they fight is fundamentally wrong. But then she starts to realize the tactics that her people are using to defend a three. They mobilize the power of the Chinese Internet to find out personal information about the other side and they threatened to dachshund post personal information online. And attack them that way the their photos dugout like were they worked where they went to school and. Will release these information people get death threats. She joined a of three all protecting people from shame, but it's defenders were using shame as a weapon. And targeting. Fellow Finns by outing them. This was so contrary to the foundation of the three community, which is that you can be who you want to be online that you shouldn't be judged or shamed for that identity. They were breaking that implicit boundary between what happens online and what happens in real life you knowing how short stories like the don't who the person ever interfered, but she means by that is the the warriors the characters in Jong Wu are always relying on their own wits and their own bonds of friendship to survive. People are never calling in central authority to solve issues. You are meant to rely on yourself and your friends to solve your problems. They're not reporting each other to the government or to the emperor's right. The emperor's just kind of like. Allow you to do whatever you're doing a sloan snap huge. That's the core colleague we have live by but now since that's been broken. Your prevously safe do not feel safe anymore. Working, on this story about reporting culture in China I kept thinking about the debate that we have in the US over canceled culture, which I know even using that term is loaded and the thing we talk about when we talk about cancel cultures usually is it right? Is it right that people are platforms get silenced and one side will say, no, because this is freedom of speech and the other side will say, yes because of racial and social justice people need to be called out. But in China? After. Xiaojun had lost all his endorsement deals after three the fan fiction site was blocked. The thing that sound I was surprised to feel was not just the loss of her platform, her space for free expression. The things she'd lost was your sense of trust. Her.
Has China Won? With Prof. Kishore Mahbubani
"Professor Shore Mahbubani welcome to the Model Majority podcast today my pleasure rejoin you. All right. So to get a conversation started, you know the focus of our interview today is your New Book Has China one, and there are a lot of things over to dive deep into with you on this book. The first thing I wanNA chat about is this notion of the Chinese civilization party as you know, very well, the as an acronym is sort around quite. Casually, in the media in foreign policy circle to describe China as a whole right the Chinese Communist Party and you believe that this is actually quite an inadequate framing to understand China as a country as a people and you believe that by thinking of the CCP as the Chinese civilization party is perhaps a better way to think about it. Why do you think this kind of change in terminology is helpful in helping the United States in particular understand China. I think it would make a huge difference. If the American people came to realize the truth. which is the main mission of the Chinese Communist Party. Is Not export communism to the rest of the world. which was the mission of the Soviet Union's Communist Party. But to try and reform I've and strengthen China's civilization. I what I told you is is a basic of. But most Americans, do not know this basic truth. Because, when they hear the what Chinese Communist, party. The what communists in the American imagination. is by definition somebody WHO's evil and doing bad things. That good a good communist continent, an oxymoron. In America, in American linguistic discourse. So when you when you tell them that they're dealing with the Chinese Communist, party the by definition, they believe they dealing with an evil party that is out to undermine America out to oppose the American values out to diminish. America's standing in the world without realizing. That the core mission of the Chinese Communist, party is is to make China's strong and what's interesting. And to understand how deeply rooted this mission is remember remember the send the words that Chairman Mao us. When the People's Republic of China was established in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, nine, he did not say, Hey, today we celebrate the victory of communism over capitalism and said that he said that she that the keyboards used that China has stood up he said it twice. China has to. So, even chairman mouse goal and he was much more of a communist clearly than the current leaders are in many ways was still China's strong. Too. That's why I think that the communist is. Creates a form of intellectual. Laziness in American minds because they cannot look behind that what the see what is really the purpose and mission. Of the Chinese Communist Party that's why I think that thinking of it as a Chinese civilization party, then they'll begin to realize the most important thing that America in China and live in peace because Chinese civilization is not opposed to American civilization American civilization and not oppose the Chinese civilization and both can live together in peace. Right right. What do you think the US not just a public but really even the foreign policy circle. Right. The folks in DC. The people who are supposed to understand the stuff for living because it's their job. To kind of display, this laziness intellectually speaking, is it just because the Cold War was still such a recent memory I guess for the United States generally positive memory. 'cause we won that we just kind of put the Communist label back to where it was just because it was something that we think we understand. You ask them very difficult question because this is the great. Paradox. About the United States in the United States spent more money. On strategic, think-tanks than any other country in the world I think he spends hundreds of millions of dollars. You not billions of dollars on tragic thing. And yet America the America is the best digit think-tank were. America has the worst thinking in the. And and is shocking for example, though any comes to understanding China? More strategic think tanks very Lisi and using all the conception tariff Nelia the Cold War in the Soviet Union. And then applying it to China, when is clearly not relevant? China. So. The inability. Of the strategic think tanks in in the United States to understand the real nature. Of China. Is actually quite a frightening. Thing to watch today,
Taiwan mayor loses recall vote in blow for pro-China opposition
"Now a high profile math from Taiwan's main opposition party lost a recall vote over the weekend. So what do we need to know about it well? Ron Is the director of Oxford University's China Center joins US on the line. Now run a good off name. Thanks for being with us. Tell us a bit about this mare and tell us what this these moves over the weekend main. Will this is really a very major event. In Taiwan Politics Hungary the man who was recalled and has now lost his job as mayor of Kaohsiung. The second biggest city in Taiwan in the south was actually very popular figure he was actually the candidate for the opposition Nationalist Women Dang party. In last year's sorry. The earlier this year s presidential election, which was won by. The incumbent president tying one, and this means that he's essentially had a massive full from grace, a the reason essentially that he was put out for recall was that some of his political opponents argued that by running for president. He'd been neglecting his job as man, but I think that most people think that wouldn't have happened. Had it not been for the increasing unhappiness at the sense that his party is? Is relatively more friendly to mainland China and right now and certainly within the last few months. That's very voter unfriendly position to take in Taiwan politics well, indeed runner and I wanted to ask you a bit about that wide context, of course, if we go back to the start of the year knees, elections in the problems that the the the the opposition party had because of exactly that sort of. anti-china sentiment. I guess we can. We can call it. That it is all bound up together inextricably, isn't it? Eighty and it's become much more so within the last year or so essentially two things or two or three things have come together at once. One is that China is much a baking mainland China is much more hostile to the current incumbent government presidency, in Taiwan, which is run by the Democratic People's Party, which take Louis would like independence Taiwan, but they know that to put that forward openly as A. Direct plan would probably lead to a very very strong. Maybe military reaction from from China and China much prefers it when the other body equaling Dang is actually in an office. So that was one thing, but the other side was the sign. One who's economic record were was not all that might be was looking as if she was running for a defeat and then Hong Kong happened last year's protests protests in the. The streets against the proposed dishing bill essentially enabled her party to use a very convincing slogan. which was this call next year possibly Taiwan variance. Oh, that and that meant that? Essentially she had one office by placing herself up as a candidate who would not in any way bow to the demands of the mainland, which of course is now seen as an authoritarian and very aggressive state in the minds of many Taiwanese voters. Rona is something to learn I. Mean I think that point especially about the comparisons with Hongkong timings there of friction that we we've seen. Is it actually helpful to try and better understand what potentially the next steps could be in Taiwan with liquor, opposition, politics, or the balance of relationship with Beijing, is that genes truck to look to Hong Kong? Does that sort of muddy the waters yet further? It's it is instructive. Look at Hong Kong as long as understands the differences, and the most crucial one is the whether one likes it or not. Hong Kong is now a part of China's sovereign rule. It was handed back by us by the British in one, thousand, nine, hundred seven, and it is now part of People Republic of China will. Governance is overseen by treaty signed between the two countries way back in nineteen eighty five. Taiwan is different. It has never been reunified with the mainland since the. Civil War in China was one in Nineteen forty-nine by chairman. Mao Mounts Dome. But of course that separation has become more and more of a sore. That needs to be dealt with in the minds of the mainland Chinese. The differences that very much, unlike Hong, Kong Taiwan does have a not. Very strong, but certainly real promise of a certain amount of assistance Ritz on defense from the United States on the something called the Taiwan Relations Act passed in Washington in Nineteen, seventy nine, so there is a military backstop that might just might be used limits very unlikely that gives people in Beijing Portsmouth old in a way. That's not true for obvious reasons for Hong, Kong. Run I just wonder and at the risk of asking You impossibly complex question and not giving enough time to answer it. What! What's the next critical juncture to look for? If we look at this balance in Taiwan, is there a specific event is question of looking at what happens at the ballot box are there particular political Moose depend on on individuals, or is it that sort of that always tricky question? You know how the public decide to take particular developments. What do we need to account for in the in the weeks ahead? I think it's important to look out for language both on Taiwan, site analyst side of the People's Republic of China on the side of the People's Republic. You have to look and see if there's any indication that moving away from their standing statement that they would be peaceful reunification with Taiwan, always use that word now. What disappeared from one of the officials statements a few weeks ago, which caused quite a flurry, as you can imagine, but mysterious enough to what peaceful came back in the mouth of Prime Minister Meka Chang a couple of weeks later, maybe the there was a quarrel over, and it was reinserted, or maybe they just forgot if that changes again on. On the long term, it's not on the peaceful reunification that does make a difference and back anti one. You have to look at how far the wider population which of course is a liberal multi-party democracy where the mainland is not looks at this white, a question of separation. They are aware that Beijing said that their absolute blood red line is the Taiwan must not declare formal independence, but there is also increasing disillusionment in the wider population of Taiwan that the mainland really gets what it means to be a free multi-party democracy in the way that Taiwan is in the meeting of minds, very unfortunately doesn't seem doesn't seem to be very apparent. Right at the moment. Date Arana always get to hear from you that our friend from Oxford University, Rana meter, joining us here on the briefing monocle twenty
Why China’s Move to Rein In Hong Kong Is Just the Start
"China's move to exert greater control over the semi independent city of Hong Kong caused more turmoil over the weekend does protesters to fide social distancing rules and clashed with police who fired tear gas and a water cannon arresting at least one hundred eighty people critics of. Beijing's move to impose a national security law on Hong Kong. Say that it is an attempt to stifle descent putting an end. The city's independence. The White House said yesterday that China will likely face sanctions for its actions in Hong Kong. So admiral the China is becoming more aggressive by day. Fairly remarkable if you look at it just in recent history that they are responsible for the unleashing of a pandemic that has wrecked the world. Economy killed So many people. We don't know where that death count is going to end up and instead of being back on their heels or working aggressively for a vaccine or are reaching out to the world community. They are actually Acting more aggressive whether it's toward Hong Kong toward Vietnam or even in the concentration camps inside their country what what is going on what. How is the United States failed in its response to Shave Power? And why in the world can we do moving forward? Let's start with the premise. Here let's go back to twenty one thousand nine hundred twenty nineteen teams like a long time ago. We already had a rich basket of disagreement. China South China Sea huge body of water. China claims it in its entirety. Five G. The network controversy as you mentioned the territorial disputes around the edges of the South China Sea with Vietnam the Philippines Taiwan additional pressure on them trade and tear disputes. So we have this very rich. Unfortunately basket of disagreement. Now you drop a nuclear bomb in the middle of that which is called Kobe. Nineteen irresponsibility of the regime in allowing that to get into the wild so to speak. And so you really have this witches brew of relationships and Newsflash. It's occurring during an election year in the United States in which the trump administration predictably is going to maximize the ability to use China. Like opinion OUGHTA and beat it for electoral advantage. So terrible fact pattern. At the moment I think the real question you nailed it show is. What do we do about it? And I'll tell you three things very quickly. I we need a strategy that means not just episodic responses but thinking about diplomacy economics military deterrence bringing that Inter Agency sensibility to the challenges of China. Secondly even more important. We need international coalition. That's all of our allies. In the Pacific and many Japan South Korea Australia New Zealand Malaysia Singapore Thailand be at Phnom Increasingly. We need to internationalize the response to China and that includes the response to co did in third and finally we need to recognize. We've got a bend this relationship with China. We've got to change the terms of it. But we don't want to break it. I E get ourselves stumbling into a Cold War. It's going to be complicated and from now to November is going to be a very difficult stretch water. Well as you talk about. Strategy the United States needs to develop a long-term strategy. We just need to start by having a coherent message to send to the Chinese. We've been so erotic if you look at the president's fawning praise of President Shea and of course we always talk about what he said on January twenty four th when he thanked president she for his transparency and all the great work China was doing. That was a bizarre tweet to send out at the time. This is also the same president. Who who saluted she for consolidating power in the past has more power than anybody since Chairman Mao in that country? But you have that fawning praise one moment Max moment you have a continuation of these erratic trade skirmishes where the president doesn't have an overall strategy and then follow that up with occasional master tweets and insults toward the people of China just because seems to be checking that off his list for the campaign. It's really hard to figure out where Donald Trump stands when it comes to China because any any attack of China any critique of China is usually followed up by the president talking about what a wonderful leader Person President Xi is exactly and reference our earlier conversation. What do you want leaders to do? You want them to bring order. Out of the chaos. He want them to have a plan. You want them to communicate in steady waves and what we don't want to do with China is treated like an on and off switch on the wall that we turn on. Oh we love China. Then we turn it off ups. We're going to get into a war with China. We've got a dial it in. It's like estate like the dimmer on the wall. In your dining room we have got to be able to have a coherent strategy. That is steady and finds balance not this jagged on and off. Switch all the time and again. I'll close on this Henry Kissinger said late last year that we were in the foothills of a Cold War I think we are continuing to ascend that mountain. It is a mistake for both nations. We need to confront where we must when the behavior warrants but we ought to try and find ways to cooperate where we can confront where we must cooperate where we can build a strategy Admiral Stavridis. Thank you very much for coming on this morning
"chairman mao" Discussed on Jocko Podcast
"To fourteen with ECHO. Charles and me Jaakko willink good evening echo evening. Dear George at zero seven hundred this morning. The BBC announced that the German radio had just come out with an announcement of the landing of allied paratroops and of large numbers of assault craft near the shore. So that is it this group of unconquerable heroes whom I command or not in yet but we will be soon. I wish I was there now. As it is a lovely sunny any day for battle and I fed up with just sitting. I have no immediate idea of being killed but one can never tell and none of us can live forever forever so if I should go. Don't worry but set yourself to do better than I have. All men are timid on entering any fight whether it is the first fight or the last fight all of us are timid. Cowards are those who let their timidity get the better of their manhood. You will never do that because of your blood lines on both sides. I think I've told you the story of Marshall Terrain who fought under Louis the fourteenth on the morning of one of his last battles he had been fighting for forty years. He was mounting getting his horse. When a young aide to camp who had just come from the court and it never missed a meal or heard a hostile shot said Mr terrain? It amazes me that a man of your supposed courage should permit his knees to tremble as he walks out to mountain terrain replied my Lord the Duke. I admit that my knees do trouble but should they know where I am. I shall this day take them. They would shake even more that. Is it your knees may shake but they will always take you toward the enemy. Well so much for that that there are apparently two types of successful soldiers. Those who get on by being unobtrusive and those who get on by being obtrusive I am of the latter type and seem to be rare and unpopular but it is my method one has to choose the system and stick to it. People who are not themselves are nobody to be a successful soldier. You must know history story. Read it objectively dates and even the minute details of tactics are useless. What you must know is is how Man Reacts Weapons Change But man who uses them changes not at all to win battles do not beat weapons? You beat the soul of Man of the enemy to do that. You have to destroy his weapons. But that is only incidental. You must read biography and especially autobiography. If you do that it will you will find that. War is simple decide. What will hurt the enemy most within the limits of your capabilities to harm him and then do it take calculated risks? That is quite different from being rash. My personal belief is that if you have a fifty percents chance take it. Because of the superior fighting qualities of American soldiers lead me led by me will surely give you the extra one percent necessary in Sicily. I decided as a result of my information observations and to six cents that I have that the enemy did not have another large scale will attack in his system. I bet my shirt on that and I was right. You cannot make war safely but no dead. General Enroll has ever been criticized. So you have that way out always. I'm sure that if every leader who goes into battle will promise himself that he will either come out a conqueror or a corpse. He's sure to win. There is no doubt of that. Defeat is not due to losses but to the destruction of the soul of the leaders the most vital quality a soldier can possess is self confidence utter complete and bumptious. You can have doubts about your good looks about your intelligence about yourself control but to win war. You must have no doubts about your ability. The as a soldier what success I have had results from the fact that I have always been certain that military reactions were correct. Many people do not agree with me. They are wrong. The unerring jury of history written long after both of us are dead will prove me correct. Note that I speak of military reactions. No one is born with them anymore than anyone is born with muscles you can be born with the sole capable of correct military reactions or the body capable of having big muscles but both qualities must I developed by hard work. The intensity of your desire to acquire any special ability depends on character on ambition. Listen I think that your decision to study this summer instead of enjoying yourself shows that you have character and ambition and they are wonderful possessions agents soldiers all men in fact our natural hero worshippers officers with a flair for command realize this and emphasizing their conduct dress and deportment the qualities they seek to produce in their men. When I was a second lieutenant I had a captain who is very sloppy and usually late? He got after his men for just those faults he was a failure. The troops I have commanded have always been well dressed been smart sluiter's been prompt embolden an action because I have personally set the example in these qualities the influence one man can have on. Thousands is a never ending source of wonder to me. You are always on parade officers. Who through laziness or a foolish desire to be popular or fail to enforce discipline and the proper wearing of uniforms and equipment not in the presence of the enemy will also fail in battle and if they fail battle they are potential murderers? There's no such thing as a good field soldier. You are either a good soldier or a bad soldier. Well this has been quite a sermon. But don't get the idea that it is my swan song because it is not. I have not finished my job yet. Signed your affectionate father and that right there. If you haven't guessed is a letter from from General George S Patton to his son George as Dedaye on folded and as you can see from the letter and also if you know anything about patent at all. He was well known not only for his skill in battle and as a tactician and as a leader but but also well known for his ego. Let me read this part again. The most vital quality a soldier can possess his self confidence silence utter complete and bumptious. And what bumptious means is is proud to an to a degree where irritating so it means what it sounds right and he say. And that's why you need to be he continues on. You can have doubts about your good looks about your intelligence about your self control but to win. Were you must have no doubts about your ability. As a soldier what success I have had results from the fact that I have always been certain that my military reactions were correct. Many people do not agree with me. They are now F- that's obviously very contrary to to what I think. Which is the most important characteristic for a leader to have is humility? So we're actually. He's saying the exact opposite things here. I mean straight up the opposite things he saying the most important thing is self confidence but he isn't say self confidence he says utter and complete and and bumptious says that's not that's not humidity So where does this wash out. We have to remember that patents. Career was not unblemished. And this is the thing that I'm gonNA keep kind of tying this back to a lot of the things that I think you remember when we did Chairman Mao and we talked about Chairman Mao now and his methodology for winning and guerrilla war and everything that he said well was like aligned with what I say it and what are the key components of that maybe not everything but a lot of what he was saying. I'd have to review it again. But a lot of what he's saying but one thing that he absolutely said Chairman Mao father of Communist China said all throughout that the leaders in the field the make decisions. They need to step up. They need to lead at what he's talking about is decentralized command and what puzzles me about that because he he recognized that you needed to have have decentralized command for a military victory right to win but then he never transpose. That idea of decentralized command into his government and we actually do know that centralized government doesn't work any better than centralized military command than centralized business leadership. It doesn't work so he never made that connection apparently and sometimes when I read about patent if you know about patent and you know about his career and you know what happened to him sometimes you hurts a little bit to know that this guy who was such a great patriot who Who such a great tactician that if he could have applied some of his principles of leadership on the battlefield if he could have applied those to his interactions with with other people he might have ended up in a much better position? It will get into some of that. Some of the some of the things that he's did One there was an attack on a place called Fort. The fall of nineteen forty four. I got this little. I wanted to kind of summarize it and there's a thing called the warfare history network that summarized it very well. It said the entire operation gradually said settled into a stalemate with the American Americans Americans unable to achieve any further gains and the men hanging on desperately to what had been one in the hard fighting food. Water ammunition were running out and the men holding holding positions underground were exposed to the dust and fumes of the tunnels by October ninth patents. Attitude about the attack had changed completely. He said the show is going sour. We will have to pull out quickly become a no win situation for the Americans because both daylight alight and nocturnal assaults had failed daytime attacks were vulnerable to the deadly fire. That rained down on four. From the adjacent forts at night assaults were really quickly quickly. Broken up and driven into confusion when the German squads emerged from their underground tunnels the Third Army suffered sixty four men killed five hundred and forty seven wounded one hundred hundred eighty seven missing assumed captured so and not achieving the objective. So that's not good right so the idea to think that everything I think of is correct and there you go even patent. Guess what he had to. He had to go kiss Oregon. He might did not like to admit that but he has a dual am. Let's just not do this. Another thing.

And then hoping that she would make it Tom com and over a number of years traces, I trace what happened to him and his separation from his sister who managed to go to another place, and he did get caught up in the various at that time called the anti rightist or movements against counter revolutionaries. You know, we are talking about a revolution that happened. And so as as. Chairman Mao himself said a revolution is not a dinner party. It is a act of of of and I'm paraphrasing here of violent change of from one class to another. And so that happened, and so people of certain backgrounds and many of these people in in indeed, those who had been loyalists officials soldiers of the woman Dong, the nationalist government that had been the old regime the losing regime, they like any other revolution. Whether that was in in Russia and the Bolsheviks versus the quote, white Russians or the French revolution. You know at our American revolution. The people on the other side had consequences to face and for these characters not all of them came from those kind of backgrounds and not everybody who fled actually were old regime, loyalists or capitalists or from the bad classes when a panic occurs. A lot of people just feel like, you know, get so feel filled with fear of the unknown that, hey, if my neighbors are running I'm going to run to and and when the coast is clear all return now in the case that you mentioned there was a very long period of time. And when things got very dark in China during the cultural revolution, and that was a ten year period. And my character of Benny who lived through it was. Pretty much in imprisoned for ten years. He was a teacher. He was locked up in the school. He based continual interogations to confess the bad things that his family had done when he was just a boy. So these were the things that he had done, but he had to account for his family and our experiences where children were pitted against their parents or family members and asked to to expose the counter revolutionaries within their own family. You know today China acknowledges that there were a lot of excesses, and as can say euphemistically, many people did die and were violently beaten to death or sent to work camps in remote terrible conditions where they died. And in fact, the toll of that period, really. Has not you know, there's no way of knowing how many millions truly suffered that. But so you're absolutely right. That people have real reasons to to leave. And and I think that's part of my point that today. It's not as though the refugees on our borders or lee-ing, Syria and ending up in different countries in Europe. It's not that they are imagining that something bad might happen. But in fact, they know, and and this is what drives people to to leave your question with Cuba. We also know that there was a historic migration an exodus because of the revolution that happened in Cuba. I I am not so familiar with the details there, but it is definitely parallel in the sense that there was a revolution. You know, there was a socialist communist revolution there with Fidel Castro with the lead and many of the that a similar clash configuration when you have a a revolution of proletarian revolution. The people who are the capitalist middle class intellectuals. The artists that people of the old regimes whether that's Shuba or China or looking at. A fascist overthrow. If if we look at what happened with the advance of the Hitler and the Nazis in Germany. It was very clear to the early intellect intellectuals of that time, the Jews of Germany who could see that. This was not going well and their lives were at stake. That's how the United States, you know, benefited from gaining Einstein or or Walter Gropius Thomas mon- or any number of of prominent, and and you know, respected people. Who knew that the writing was on the wall for them. And it would be better if they fled and they too faced incredible tortuous decisions. Just like these. You know, exiles and refugees from Shanghai or from Cuba. And and we know the, you know, many of them ended up in the United States. And because of that the politics of today and the geopolitics in the world have changed. I mean, the emigres the refugees from Shanghai brought us Amy tan. Maya lin. Elaine Chao, who is our secretary of commerce. Steven CHU, who is a Nobel prize winner, and and secretary of energy, so these and many many more, and we can see that these, you know, flights out of countries also bring a lot of talent and people who are highly motivated to make contributions to the places of refuge who who gives them refuge. And so another of the things that said today. Aronie asleep said today is that these people are going to damage our our country the United States that they are the rich to our national security. In fact, if we look at who came from whether it was Cuba or Shanghai or or or Germany during World War Two. America game tremendously from the the people who who end up here. And who I have to say are most grateful that they have a place where they can raise their children into a beyond childhood. So so thank you for that question. Thank you. Helen. Helen, we have another caller will walk into the OT victory. Comments, bert. Thanks for taking my call. And thanks for your guests. You're having this program at a much easier time. When I think of the refugees on this south border. I think of my time and be at Phnom what we did to those people that I experience with my own eyes and later on when I was back in this country driving greyhound move, some of the refugees from fort Makore to Devon parts of the country. It dawned on me that these people had no choice, and I feel the same way about the people on the southern borders and hour because of the United States intervention in different ways, the Latin America's it was the United States that created the atmosphere there audience environment where it's impossible for the people to live in their own country. Whether whereas flooding the markets with. Good to make it impossible for them to grow their products survive. Whether it was over Troy, their elected leaders. It's still the same situation that's happening now. And I think. I'm thinking that people are either ignorant to the facts are just don't care about those people because they bought into the idea that they are bad people coming to do harm. I would. I don't know it just tears my heart and what's going on. Board and to know how our country how destroyed many other countries for for capitalistic recent. Thank you much. We'll thank you so much and that reminds me of the US policy toward Asian immigrants that when when when this book is set the United States did not take Asian immigrants to large degree. Helen, your comment. Well, thank you will for your very compassionate story and recounting of your experiences in Vietnam. And then, you know, with the refugees from southeast Asia who were brought to different parts of of the United States and. Their experiences too. I mean, very much parallel to, you know, the stories of refugees and migrants at any time who must flee from crisis. It really is a life and death situation and and the tragedy of today not only at the southern border. But even you know generations later, we're talking about a generation past that time that will was referring to with you know, the refugees from Vietnam. And and and we can remember and look at the images of people standing on the roof of the American embassy trying to get away. And in that case, it was the last helicopter out of Saigon who could be on that who who would could go and who would not be able to. And so, but we can look at that time. And and know that the US was as you pointed out very involved. At the root of life. These people had to to leave and today what's happening in this next generation is this administration. This unfortunate government. We have today is actually looking to deport and actually has deported some of the children and people who came as children in that exodus from Vietnam. It's it's shameful. They came here because they were allies of the US government. They and this applies also to Cambodian and Lao refugees. All who came out of that conflict in southeast Asia that the war that the US brought there, and and they came because they had a promise that they could live here because they were our allies because they fought with America. And now, so many of them have been deported, including not just this administration, but previously and. The Obama administration because if they had some. Crime that they might have committed and that crime might have been involuntary a car accident where somebody was injured or or or died that because of that they then had a record and became subject to deportation. And so today, this is happening. It's been happening, and it is completely shameful. And I think as well noted, you know, some of the people ended up in one part of the country, then had to go to another area, and the the refugees from Vietnam were placed in communities, many of which really did not want them, and you can imagine the culture clashes that happened and bullying and the unfamiliarity of of being in a in a city where they couldn't even speak the language, and if you were a kid in a school. So different from everybody else. A lot of those kids I encountered mileage and difficulties where they had to stand up and fight for themselves. And maybe then got a record for that. And so now, we're seeing all of that catch up where where young people who might have had something in their past as a child as a teenager before they were at dull are now because becoming subject to to deportation under this administration and placed to be sent to a country that they have never known with the language that they might not even speak. So these kind of global and political. Frameworks causes, you know, disasters policies that lead to expeditious like out of Vietnam or Shanghai or Cuba. They have long legs generations, we still we meaning the United States. Still hasn't recovered from the. The policy mistakes out of the Cold War with China and entire generation of State Department experts were eliminated because of the McCarthy era and the Cold War because they were considered to be too too sympathetic to China or the Chinese people or to, you know, going native was a popular phrase, and so they were removed their loyalties were questioned. When in fact, what happened was a whole generation of people who had some knowledge about Asia or China were gone, and and and US policy in Asia was followed a lot of misdirections because of that and Vietnam and the war there is certainly one of those examples exactly I Helen.
