The Pandemic has Fueled a Gig Economy for Nurses
"From wondering. I'm david brown. And this is business wars daily on this friday february twelfth. Happy end of the week everyone. Let's talk about an industry that was feeling the squeeze even before the covid nineteen pandemic began nursing right now. There are more jobs for registered nurses available than there are qualified people to fill them and that shortage is expected to grow unless the industry can get one point. One million jobs filled by twenty twenty two. According to the american nursing association ad in a pandemic and nurses are really feeling the heat. In april of last year the american nursing association survey thirty two thousand nurses about their experiences serving during covid nineteen eighty seven percent of the respondents said. They feared going to work and only eleven percent said they felt equipped to take on patients with cove. It working long hours in high stress. Conditions means more nurses or at risk of burning out and quitting of course that only exacerbates the shortage and leaves hospital scrambling to find qualified health professionals to work with sick patients. Question is is this a problem. That technology could fix well. Some companies think so and are using it to make life easier both for nurses and the healthcare facilities that rely on them connect. Rn is an app that matches medical facilities that need help with nurses willing to take on part time shifts. Hospitals pay connect are in a twenty percent fee in return for access to registered nurses licensed practical nurses and nursing assistants nurses on the app can make between thirty and forty five dollars an hour. The la times reported the pros nurses have said they get paid quickly. Sometimes the next day and the app gives nurses the freedom to choose where and when they work which could potentially decrease. Burn out the cons. Well the app says it helps. Nurses take on quote additional shifts so employees aren't full-time and therefore not eligible for benefits and because the shifts are per diem longer term work be guaranteed as hospital needs change. The on demand nursing industry is getting crowded both intel care and snap nurse which essentially do the same thing as connect are in saw consistent growth even before the pandemic until he care says its app filled four million open shifts since twenty seventeen and snap nurse has around fifty thousand nurses using the platform. Not all apps operate in the same states which cuts down on direct competition but nurses who want to get away for a while at least get away from where they currently live or scrolling. Pass those options and turning to a fourth app trusted health like connect r n trusted health matches facilities with contract nurses but these contracts are longer generally three months and usually require travel to locations where the demand for nurses is high trusted. Health make sure salaries are transparent when jobs are posted and for nurses willing to travel. Those salaries can be high glass door estimated that nurses can earn between eight thousand and ten thousand dollars a month with trusted health. The downside traveling nurses tend to migrate to places where the pay is highest
Budgeting Expenses While Living on The Road with Renewable Energy Worker Clayton
"Clayton. Welcome to the bigger targets. Many podcast. i'm so excited to have you today. Thanks guys. I'm really excited to be here. Appreciate all your advice. Throughout allentown cast stones awesome. Well thanks for listening. So clayton is a twenty six year old renewable energy worker living in the midwest and looking for some suggestions on financial planning in general so that he can retire early and lead his best life clinton. Why don't you walk us through your income and debts absolutely so right now. Actually our income just got cut by about forty percent girlfriend. Travels with me for work and she. Unbeknownst us lost her physician so lost forty percent of our income. I'm sitting at a salary for diem and a trailer allowance and then some rental income from a rental property that we have totalling about seven grand a month. Can you give us some background on that. So you say salary per diem and camper each just give us enough background in your job to understand why you have predicament camper allowance. Sure yes so. With the renewable energy side. We travel all over the country so ben everywhere from north dakota colorado oregon iowa and now down in texas so pretty gives me some money in basically not sleeping my own bed. Money right and then Trailer allowance. i live in a fifth wheel while on the road so kind of a unique living situation and they give me allowance for that too. Because there's obviously expenses that come with pulling a trailer and the wear and tear on the tyres and all that kind of thing so companies generous enough to give us allowances for those kind of things and yeah ok. Great eddie other sources of income besides the salary camper allowance pretty yup so we do have a rental property. that were satirized. Well we are at home so kind of one of those ideals to were living on the road but we have a home base and house hacking that home base. So that's bringing in about fifteen hundred a month for us right now and it's gonna go up hopefully the next month or two. Once we finished some slight remodels and get another room rented so it should go up to about two thousand dollars fantastic. Yeah expense side of things fixed expenses. Obviously we got the mortgage. We do have a car loan and then luckily enough again with the company. I worked for their great and they cover a lot of expenses on the road so the living allowance. The lot rent recover my lower end from camper all that kind of stuff. So it's pretty limited to mainly just jim internet's phone bills and then food things like that. So the picture informant. My head is a really strong financial position. We talked about a seven thousand dollars in income. Let's exclude the house act. We got about fifty five hundred dollars a month in income and are you kind of abbreviating that to after tax dollars. Yes yeah that's all after tax. Okay great so you got about fifty five hundred and after tax dollars plus we got income from your house hack how much is your mortgage mortgage is about twelve hundred dollars a month principal interests. I thank is around seven fifty. Our insurance is actually a little bit higher because the house situation is kind of odd. An taxes are actually relatively low about thirteen hundred a year. So awesome so even with maintenance. You're probably sitting at no more than fifteen hundred dollars. Total housing costs. What are your utilities. You think as hard to us for now just because we do live on the road and it's relatively low because we're one twice a month so i don't know maybe hundred dollars okay. So you're housing is free for all intents and purposes through the house hack. Is that right correct. Yep awesome love it. How about transportation is that also largely free because of the allowance for the camper and that type of stuff. That's another benefit as Transportation's pretty much free. I gotta company truck and again the company. I work for their so generous to let me use that personal time to you which is awesome. We do have a vehicle for my girlfriend and we do have a debt on that as well and believer sitting at eighty five hundred or so see if a balance of eighty five hundred on that in cash payment associated with it okay. What would you kind of estimate your total expenses to be housing. We've got to close zero. What would you say outside of housing. Your monthly expenses are unrelated to work man. I'd say twenty five hundred ish maybe a month and that's going to be broken out between that car payment in a gym and entertainment this types of things normal year when it's not twenty twenty. We tended to spend a little bit more than now. It's a little bit less but yeah okay great. So what i'm seeing. Here is an ability to accumulate at least fifteen hundred to two thousand dollars a month in cash flow on an ongoing basis. Is that right yes awesome and then when you look at your financial position do you feel that. The opportunities are going to be on the income side on the expense side or on the capital allocations piece in terms of managing the money. You're accumulating i say right now are sitting pretty good as far as the income. I feel pretty solid with the income side of things granted like i said we did lose some of that coming in but i believe there is work to do on our expense side of things. 'cause i don't accurately track it. Everything i do is rough estimates. So i know what my phone is monthly. I know what the car payment is monthly but the food and all that stuff who knows i mean sometimes we go out and have fun and go out to local italian restaurant or whatever it is so perfect so i think we're gonna have a phone with this because your expense the way you've just described your situation. We don't housing expense. And i see a path forward here. Where if for example if your path that over the next year to you don't have to pay for housing and you don't have to pay for vehicle at least in the short run. I mean you get to that point and you have a thousand dollars per month is what i understand per diem. Is that right. Roughly a thirty six days. So depending on when i'm work that worked when i'm at home so about thousand
Protection of Personal Data in Blockchain Technology
"Zor. Res- asks what do you think about. Privacy designed blockchain so. It's kind of interesting because these blockchain's are sort of under attack. I guess you could say from regulation right now. A melted mirrors actually talked about this in the episode that he did with her and lynn alton Where she said that. That's kind of the main thing she'll be looking out for twenty twenty one and i think You know we at this moment that i'm recording this. We only have rumors about what type of regulation it was that Treasury secretary steve mnuchin wanted to put on crypto right. Now because i think actually you privacy coins were in the crosshairs and this was something night. Jessie liu who came on unconfirmed talked about She was the what was it. Former attorney for dc. She's prosecuted a ton of cases are around some of the biggest ones involving illegal. Use bitcoin and via actor state actors like north korea or by the child porn website in in korea. Welcome to video. And and some of the other big criminals like terrorists and stuff and weight point. Is she highlighted by a something that she was noticing in. I can't remember it was the dot enforcement framework actually and I do think you know this is going to be something that comes up again because brian brooks the action control of the currency. Also kind of you know. When i asked him about what how he thought the. Us might regulate privacy. He said oh well you know the. Us is different from other countries because we're We're the victims of terrorism or or were subject to terrorism or something like that and he said that he thought people would be willing to make a trade off for that. Which i thought was very interesting. A really was curious to know what the crypt communities reaction was to that comment. But yeah so. I think we're going to see that kind of come up as a battle and i actually. I would be surprised. If in the end there wasn't some way to have Blockchain side feature privacy prominently because in a way. I can't imagine the technology really taking off in all the ways that it could take off if there wasn't such a feature and you even see that like in a forthcoming episode. I have unconfirmed. It's a panel discussion but there is somebody from the federal reserve who talks about building systems for central bank digital currencies. Who says you know flat out like you can't design these systems unless you have privacy you as a consideration from the beginning he said it cannot be an afterthought and and he's talking about for central bank digital currency so. I really do think that you'd at least some of these vaccines will have to feature it prominently and i. I don't think that we're going to end up with blockchain set it at all. I would be surprised on a long enough time scale. I do think in the in the beginning. There might be a bit of a battle. But i think after we got real adoption then i would be very surprised if we don't start to see more privacy
Are They Really Going To Ban Stablecoins?
"So are they really gonna bend stable coins. This seems to be one of the biggest news stories out there right now. You know when something. He's a maybe that is something that really gets twit crypto with to go in a kind say crypto twitter going. Because when is maybe we all started debating the probability of it happening. And that's natural. I suppose because as soon as we know what's going to happen in the future then we make like investing decisions and positions that rhymes allows us to get ahead of the curve. So we wanna know how to position ourselves ahead of the curve. And if it's going to happen we can do that. So in this case. I'll start off with a tweet from congresswoman rashida web t. l. a. You pronounce that so you want to get as close to the primary source possible. I was just thinking about this amigo in journalism. You call primary source. But i suppose in crypto that's like the base layer lay zero so it's at the blockchain layer so this is the tweet from the horse's mouth. There's another way you'd say so the the tweet l. post in the notes so here he goes. It says preventing cryptocurrency providers from repeating the crimes against low and moderate income residents of cola. Traditional big banks have is critically important. That's why i'm proud to announce the hashtag stable act with two of the representatives. Never mind the names. Governors them links. So what i'd like to know. Straightway by the way first thing. I'd like to know is Specifically what is meant by crimes against low and moderate income residents of course so of color talk about people in united states. who are people of color. Get that so other crimes though. We're talking about you know declining bank accounts like when the replied full by people have colorized us. Well if that's the case if we are talking about when a person of color applies for bank account and gets declined because there were president of the crypto communities already solved that problem right. People of color can download in a theory. Will it do some online work and then get paid in die stable coins. Da so in that scenario. There's no possibility of discrimination because creating a theory will it is free and is permission list and die a stable coin which is protected from volatility. So that's that a die is also not ted the to dulles it's backed by a theory of another permission this asset so the floor is in the first few words of this tweet that says preventing cryptocurrency providers ding ding ding. So reheat. a main will be aware that stable coins like di do not have centralized providers behind them so these stable coins these owned chain stable coins their generated on public network without requiring permission from anyone. And because there's no personal information required. It doesn't matter what color you cola isn't even a consideration because it doesn't matter it's a totally lit fed flare so tony fair and level playing field for everybody. So there's your solution right net now before anyone roasts onto it's about transaction fees a theory him being discriminatory to low and moderate income. People i hear you so us instead. Download the one that wallet. They'll provide you with a free account. And then you can use any one of a dozen collateralized stable coins e else where transactions are free. so that's not bad back to the tweet then links to T. l. a. I don't house dot gov which is the greater detail about this particular piece of legislation. They call it they call it the stable act right. Which is kind of ironic. Isn't it but stands for stable coin tethering and bank licensing enforcement. Now that's clearly been shoehorned into the acronym stable so they might not be. What is actually says. Is that this week. These congress people got together with the chairman of the task force for financial to l. d. blah blah blah and introduce these stable act which is which would protect consumers from the risks imposed by imagining digital payment instruments such as facebook's libra which is now called diem and they will coins current offered in the market by regulating their issuance and related commercial activities. It then says digital currencies who value is permanently pegged to or stabilized against a traditional currency like the dollar pose new regulatory challenges while also representing a growing source of market liquidity and credit risk. So that's that's the first paragraph talking about here in a press. Release on this website. So again this is aimed squarely acc- stable coins data pegged to dollar reserves it specifically says pegged stabilized against traditional conventional currency reserves. I just described above with regards to like the algorithm mickley stabilized coins that are backed by commission assets like theory more. Well that's a technological solution to this problem. Rather nate legislative one and plus. This technology already exists right now today. Ready to use right after you finish listening to this podcast. But as ever since since behavior always flows from identity. If you are a regulator will your primary purpose is to regulate not solve problems no matter how many times you say. Oh we're actually trying to solve problems note. If you're a regulator your primary purpose is to regulate not solve problems otherwise you'd call yourself a problem sold and that's why you'd be accountable for the outcome of your work would be solutions to problems. But it isn't the outcome of the work that you do as a regulator is regulation so that we got. You have to ask that question though. What would rashid do if she say. Listen to this podcast. When and investigated the tools of his mentioned and discovered that they can accomplish the exact goal. They're aiming to achieve well at that point. Would this draft law than be put in the been and be labeled job done or would it create a fear. They accept that this pro has already been sold. They lose their peppis so discovering. How effective those unchain stable coin solutions May create the snowball of fear along the lines of olga. If these innovators really have sold this problem with technology what are the problems that they solved that. We're supposed to be tasked with solving that also asked like w- what if they're able to solve all the problems with technology. Then what would we do with ourselves as regulators so the end of the day politicians and regulators the human beings but the same fears and emotions and thoughts as the rest of us. So i can't help but look at it from that point of view as well put back to the specific gripes. That rashida has britain. would these stable coins. This often hear about guaranteeing customer deposits. Well with own chain stable coins. The reserves a completely transparent and auditable the stable coins themselves that issued by smart contracts and backed by more collateral than traditionally pick stable coins like tether by eos book. If i ever need. I've got the vigor system platform open right this minute and if i look it the vegas stable coin right this minute. The collateral ratio eat a hundred and fifty percent so wild pig stable coins. Like the us. Dc jimmy dolla. They all have one does worth of cash for every one dollar stable coin. These unchain stable claims like vega will has one dollars fifty of collateral backing everyone stable coin and more than that if a person of color where paid in viggo for some wag that they did well the past them would be zero collateral risk. That's all taken care of behind the scenes by the insurers of the protocol level and so the de the holder of the vega has absolutely no knowledge whatsoever this going on and neither do the insurers have any knowledge of the and using the stable coins. That unearth Or not doesn't matter that don't care right that is providing the insurance system and engaging with the protocol and that's the end of it that's their relationship the relationship with the protocol not the uses that don't care about the as long as they play by the rules which you have to anyway so those protections are built right in. It's not even a consideration right. Discrimination based on skin color is completely impossible at the protocol level if someone decides not to hire someone for a job say because the applicant is a person of color will obsolete nothing to do the way money works. That's a whole separate problem that needs addressing a whole separate conversation beyond the scope of this particular podcast so whether the law gets passed in this this stable at low whether he gets passed in the us or not. i personally would much rather people of color. Just use the on table coins anyway right. Just do that anyway. If you listen to this and you are coa go check out things like meta mask and the die. Stable coin for theory amiss. Da and then if you wanna look at the us equivalent look out for the one bat. Wallet and the vega stable coin his v. i. g. o.
"diem" Discussed on LensWork
"He was healthy. He was younger than I am. He was vibrant mountain climbers are enthusiast full of life. And just like that gone and I found out about on Friday morning. Just. A couple of hours before we were scheduled to have marines burial ceremony. And I have to tell you both of those combined and struck me like a bolt. I'm going to mourn Jack to he. He wasn't a long term friend, but he was very definitely. A photographic fellow traveller, we were kindred spirits. We had a ball putting together that final workshop. And just like that, he's gone and. I could I suppose look at all of this with. A certain morbid attitude of resign and depression. But like I say I'm an eternal optimist in the lesson that I'm getting from these two back to back tragic deaths. Is Carpe Diem. Seize the day. Life goes on we all know we are mortal. We all know that we have a limited number of days. A limited opportunity to hug our loved ones a limited opportunity to produce our artwork. And it's so easy to postpone those. Important things. For some reason or another that pushes them off into a future. which may not exist. For Years Maureen had been photographing flowers when we would go to the desert southwest and she would find something that was blooming in the middle of Hall of that dryness over there she would photograph it and she collected a large number of these from death valley from the desert southwest from North Dakota she loved doing it. It wasn't super serious photography but. She loved it and she wanted to do skip talking about making some grid pictures. which she never did and she ran out of time before she could get that done. And I'll forever wonder what that would have been head. She had time to do it. Jack Curran was a brilliant moment in his career when his vision and his technique in his imagery was. Really making an impact and really starting to gather momentum. He was becoming more and more well known for the spectacular images that he did. He was on the cover of Lens Work One forty eight, just an issue of go. And that's just one Magazi- he he was beginning to be seen in lots of places and his teaching was in demand and Just like that gone. That's. It's a bummer I. It's a depressing thought I know I apologize for that but for those of us who are left. Life goes on we don't know for how long but life goes on. And we have artwork to make in like say. Loved ones to hug and experiences to have. And Maybe. The best idea out of this kind of tragedy. is to recognize that we have each day a gift. which we can spend..

Self-Advocacy Through Storytelling with Katie Vigos, RN
"Welcome back to the moment everybody I am speaking with Katie Vigo's today she is a registered nurse and founder of the empowered birth project. I'm so excited to speak with you today we've had a few technical difficulties in hopefully those stay at bay now but yeah, welcome to the woman. I'm so glad we finally got you on. Thank you so much for having me. I'm excited for our conversation you work in Icu Poe right now correct yes. That's right. Critical Care is still my primary specialty the moment. Love that when did you know you want it to be a nurse led you to this field? I've always been interested in anatomy and physiology as a kid I found the human body to. Be. So fascinating and I was just drawn to those sciences and when I was a senior in high school my offered a free course to become certified as a CNA nursing assistant, and so I immediately saw Kinda, this golden opportunity to get certified to start working in this field that I'd always been interested in. So I took a class and then got my first job working in skilled nursing facility and I've pretty much never stopped. I love. That's the thing that's basically the road I talk to you like I. Well, I knew I wanted to be a nurse but like as soon as I could take that scene a course I did that a great way to get started. A it definitely will introduce you to to see if you can handle being around that much bodily fluid. That will particular job was like probably the most backbreaking Labor I've ever done in my life. Yeah. Yeah. All have only gone up hill from there their gotten better from there that was so hard. I was too young and inexperienced to even know any better I was just excited to be working in. You know getting started with my career yeah. One hundred percent I mean I started working on a med surge floor and I literally never been in more pain in my life than when I would come home from working. At. A shift there. I have so much respect for MED surge nurses. I S honestly think it's harder in many ways that what to do in critical care respect for floor nursing same same I ended up in the Nikki I've had enough of adults like I can't. I can't move them. No, it's. It's physically, very challenging. Mentally emotionally, spiritually challenging job it requires like our whole being so he has. Yes people. Yeah. What is life and free since the pandemic started with working still being in the ICU I it's you know it's been a roller coaster I at the time that Kobe really started to hit the United States where we went on lockdown here. In California, I was on a full time loan to cardiovascular is you which was a challenging assignment, but I took it because I wanted you know some fulltime work for a few months and I was just a few weeks instead assignment and starting to feel a little bit more comfortable, and because I was per diem and because all almost all elective non emergent surgeries completely stopped onus unindicted unit was way overstaffed and they're like, well we. Don't need you any more sorry and I was like, okay. So I lost that Gig and then I had been working in outpatient surgery as well with a facility for three years and back completely shut down. So ironically I was kind of gearing up in those early weeks. I'm like all right here we go. Like I've been training my whole life for this and I was it just didn't play out the way I expected a now a sudden I'm worried about you know getting enough work as I in pandemic. And there are a lot of reasons for that that you know I'm sure you're aware of many people listening are aware of, but you know the per diem crowd got hit hard and everything just shifted around so quickly and then it was like travel nurses coming in, you know my co workers are you know leaving and getting work elsewhere because they can't Get at our hospital and it just felt so chaotic and uncertain, and I have had also been working for the private sector for the last eight or nine years here in Los Angeles Oh come on a lot of pride in doing her thing and so I'm really networked into that field as well here and so I was able to just hustle in. Find some private work and just like piecing everything together like a lot of us per diem nurses are good at doing you know. Yeah. So I was able to get through you know kind of those early months and then things started to pick up again at my hospital and so now that I'm able to work more kind of back mostly full in the ICU again, doing some a private work as well and aside it's it's changed everything I mean regardless of where we work like. Especially, at first like the policies and procedures were just changing daily, you know as mere figuring out the best ways to protect ourselves, screen all of our patients and everything, and so that was overwhelming to keep up with, and for example, I was floated to. Telemetry one day at a unit I. Believe once before come on shift and I have a patient who is like in basically in respiratory distress did not like the level of a rapid response per se. But like he's on iphone as will Kanye like eighty percent like fifty liters or something like that, and you know he has tech Nick and all this stuff and I'm just like, are we going to test this guy for covert like your and? where's PP P now, as I kinda, don't want to go in the room unless I have that, and then I really had to advocate for myself and be like you know, let's test this guy that was before my hus-, my husband's testing everybody. But like those early weeks were really stressful that way because there are so many unknowns and it was it was scary to walk into work which previously was familiar and comfortable to me is an experienced nurse and two now just feel.

"Early that evening I saw tracers flying over the city heard the sound of machine gunfire and then in utter disbelief watched an Arvin fighter planes strafing arvin truck convoy. It was incredible a- tableau of the madness of the war. One of the planes rockets fell wide of the mark exploding near an American position and wounding three marines. The prop driven Sky Raider roared down again, firing its rockets and cannon once more into the convoy packed with south. Vietnamese soldiers. And I knew then that we could never win. With the government and an army liked that in south Vietnam we could never hope to win the war. To go on with the war would be folly. Worse. Than Folly, it would be a crime murder on a mass scale. and quote. So what had happened? The overthrow and assassination of GM was supposed to stabilize the country and bring about a new government that could defeat the communist led insurgents. Preoccupied with the flaws of GM's ruling family lodge and other decision makers had put little effort into identifying who would replace them. Watch. Assumed that quote it seems at least an even bet that the next government would not bungle and stumble as much as the present one has end quote. But the optimism of November nineteen, sixty, three quickly faded. After the coup, the Revolutionary Military Council led by General men dismantled Ziems personalist state forever. Surviving family members were imprisoned, exiled or executed. The institutions built by Z, M, and new including. The personalist training centers the CAN LAU party and the youth militias were disbanded. The Strategic Hamlet Program collapsed as peasants returned to their old villages. ziems vision for South Vietnam died along with him in the back of the personnel carrier. The generals who came after him ushered in a new state, a military government whose ideology was narrowly based on anticommunism. The hunter quickly fell apart. Generals broke into factions and launched coups and counter coups against each other. General men lasted a few months before being overthrown by another general win con in early nineteen sixty. Four. Khan himself was ousted by a third faction in February nineteen, sixty five. In June of that year, The New York Times counted twenty major upheavals in the southern government since the death, of GM. Even April Harriman one of the authors of cable to forty three admitted a few months after the coup. As, you look back on it DM was better than the chaotic condition which followed him. Communist leaders understood that one of their most effective and ruthless enemies had just been removed. Poaching. Men who had offered him a position in his own government way back in the nineteen forties. I can scarcely believe that the Americans would be so stupid. The National Liberation Front rapidly expanded its control of the countryside and inflicted heavy casualties on the orphan with constantly lost ground as its commanders fought among themselves. The Front's leader called the coup a gift from heaven. Hanoi related. It's war in the south sending more supplies and eventually sending its first regular units down the trail in nineteen sixty five. The new American President Lyndon Johnson inherited the mess left by his predecessor. A month after Jim's death secretary of Defense McNamara warned him quote. The situation is very disturbing. Current trends unless reversed in the next two to three months will lead to neutralization at best and more likely to a communist controlled.

Swan responded that the personnel carrier had been chosen to protect its distinguished passengers. Quote Unquote extremists. Gem seemed to accept this explanation and asked if they could make a stop at the palace to collect personal items. Swan politely replied that this was impossible. His orders were to proceed directly to headquarters. GM and new were shoved into the carrier which sped off for Saigon. Jacobs continues.

Observing that new was still alive and twitching none put a bullet in his head as well. Neither I nor new ever defended themselves neon recalled. Their hands were tied. and quote. Jacobs mentions that that's one version of the story and the generals conducted their own investigation, which determined that Neha the guy who was the main source that account was not an innocent bystander.

"And New finally bowed to the inevitable. They took communion at Saint, Francis Xavier Church, and then telephoned the rebels. General Tran Van don answered in a room that was apparently littered at this point with cigarette butts and beer cans. GM. I am the elected president of the nation. I am ready to resign publicly and also ready to leave the country. But I ask you to reserve for me, the honors do departing president. Don replied really I must say that we cannot satisfy you on that point. GM. All. Right. Thank you. Half an hour leader GM called back and surrendered unconditionally. He told the rebels that could find him and his brother at the church. They'd be waiting. In the officers club, the surrender triggered a fierce debate among the rebels who were split over what to do with their new prizes. Some like General Dawn favored. Brothers. Other.

So Neil do you WANNA give people recap of what at least United States unemployment has reached as of April third twenty twenty years. Sure so there's a bit less than seven million people that have just become unemployed and for the rest of the April by the time you listen to. This'll be towards the end of April. It looks like the unemployment rates are just going to get much much worse than this summer saying that in the United States alone there'll be more than ten percent unemployment rate which is thirty to forty percent. I heard Goldman Sachs a ten percent. I've heard some people say fifteen twenty percent I see the numbers ranging the problem with how they calculate unemployment is. It's not as simple as oh. You don't have a job like if you've been unemployed for over six months. They considered you not unemployed. They considered you. You Stop Looking. Which isn't accurate. Either right so it depends how they wanNA end counting you as unemployed or employed so actionable things in terms of what you can do during hard times right now. So what now better than ever like? I actually spoke to someone. That's that's freelancing right. Now it just depends on what you're doing maybe doing advertising. It's hard to say. Oh I'M GONNA go get clients right now but if you do want to get a job right now. They're a lot of people are still hiring and I will say that there's actually a in Silicon Valley. There's all these starts posting whether they're hiring or laying people off or Amazon hiring a lot. Cbs's Walgreens is is the biggest lead at three hundred fifty thousand but those are some of the people that are hiring Walmart. I believe this hiring like crazy right now.

Now's the easiest way because people aren't making that much right now but they could use to help the easiest way to try to find a job right now is looking at skill sets. You have go find any venture funded company that's been funded recently. Because I mean they're flush with cash crunch base has a big list of them and go email the CEO the founder and the investors. What they're doing wrong and how they can fix it and lay it out in step by step instructions at the end just being like look best selecting this if you need help and you're looking for to hire someone. I'm open for a job. This is exactly tied to your point. Neil so sorry. Sorry for interrupting but go to candor dot co slash. Hiring Dash freezes. These are all the silicon valley companies. And there's a lot of green in here. You can sort by hiring hiring freeze and layoffs but yet in go hit up those companies that Eric just mentioned on that you are all candor dot co slash hiring freezes and go hit a ball those companies. Tell them what they can do to improve. And I bet you you'll find people willing to hire you. That's what I used to back in the day even during the last recession. And if you do that you can do quite well. You may not get the prime job that you want but hey something's better than nothing right. We can't be to choose at this point. So this is actually.

"HAVE DEAN. Egan men on the show. In so dean. Can you just give us a quick introduction just insights quickly to like who you are just a little bit on your background before we jump into? Kinda working and he does. I'm I'm twenty one year old developer. I've been developing since the age of like twelve. I've been working professionally. Since the age of fifteen I started out in ecommerce discovered bitcoin on read it and kind of fell into theory him there and then in. I think around two thousand sixteen two thousand seventeen Mac guy on read on the theory Through an argument and start working on smart contracts security with him and kind of started properly diving into this faced that argument so you are arguing on read it and decided to tell us about that argument. It was about a smart contract I wrote. He was convinced it wasn't secure. I was convinced it was secure. And that kind of devolved into an argument and then we started talking on on email Kind of became friends through that and then he was like okay. You seem like you know what you're doing. I'm looking for people to help me scale as HE K. Labs and then. I joined him doing that while I was still working at the e Commerce Place. I was working at so I was doing those two things for like a year or so side by side and then I also join the INS team additionally. I was doing three things side-by-side up until I left the job at e commerce and then focused on Zika Kay labs and also so now that you are working more directly into the space What is your kind of like core function from day to day? Now that you're you know programming specifically in Diem space. What are you working right now at status? I do protocol research. I don't do that much. Voting their code. I right there is mainly proof of concept stuff and then at then I in my free time I work on switches to Pineau client. I work on a night. Try to like touch as many things as I possibly planned to try and learn as much as I can. What would you say has been one of the most difficult parts of implementing a for each two point zero as citizens? Because there's a lot of implementations that are doing this so how are you going about this as opposed to say like the lone star team or the Dude Zada a chain safe etc? What's what's your what's your process here. Is it just you or you know? Kind of what's just I mean it's me right mainly fun. I have a lot of Eric. Kufr powers by chain safe so changed safe is probably going to help out on a bit more One of the one of the hardest things was Working with the suspect which kept on changing. Now that that's frozen that's been simplified so not that much random re factoring anymore. Spec challenges One of the input definitely be hard at networking stuff. 'cause the PCP doesn't exist in swift. So I need to figure out how to do all of that stuff but right now I have a different plan on how to get you running that. I don't fully implement the beacon chain itself. Yeah so what I'm going to be doing is using lodestar nodes for the beaten chain and then writing validate or clients so that you can validate using iphones. 'cause you don't need the full beacon chain implementation to create about. Inter client on the validation Is actually quite simple. What would cause you? You've been a pretty vocal proponent about the the SPEC for each two point Oh in general and a lot of aspects of upcoming changes during him Kind of the current plan procedure in in a SPEC for to point out what what sort of I guess what elements of it are still make you feel uneasy or unsure or or the they might not be best when it comes to import that into practice. Well first of all respect. I'm still convinced isn't really a SPEC. It's a python implementation. I still convinced that we need to have a proper SPEC because any developer. Who looks at that? Spec won't understand what well they'll know what the be contained does but no one really knows why and I think that's. That's the main question the spectacles to answer and east to nose back right now doesn't do a very good job at that. I've been arguing with like Danny Ryan and just drake about getting them to write. What I see is a proper SPEC and then there's things like that the process of deploying that I'm not comfortable with like a phase zero being launched I think that's a bad idea The fact that the contract for two point. Oh isn't a two way thing? It's a one way thing like your ass gets locked. You can never unlock it anymore. just things like that. Make me a little

Seventeen what steps you've taken to bear down. Focus on actually delivering this network and and ultimately where you see things going now that the token is trading and you are named net attempting to scale our Think appearances can be deceptive. So so the idea actually a started in late twenty sixteen. Always don't team mum Avatar on a little. Bit of a hiatus from from crypto. But an interesting thing happens personal. I was looking at privacy and security and Looking ideas around something like open. Ai FOOTFALL SECURITY TECHNOLOGY GETS MODEST. People get funded somehow. I'm just really bad. Down on fundamental ideas of how you could rebuild Systems the data that had security as privacy as default rather than Later because if you look back at the way we did us out insecurity And Right now. We're all concerned about privacy. And so a collie layer on And then I'll phone voted so like a number of people in the spice. Someone Might Sir get my phone on. Take my keys on recovered.

Ads approved that I was meeting proved that I was in third thing. Maybe I've been face from your phone voters out. I do not much about security now something that I as I said the other day. What's your one thing recommend to somebody who's coming into the industry on just like protection. Stop because we need to so ellie twenty seventeen after that phone voting in two thousand sixteen. I was just really motivated to do something like this. I was like some kind of like siphoning off the seat and just get on us So I thought ideals and the VPN space just seemed really strange and messed up to me begins. Have this thing even today so I should die while this use of course now I say okay but in the past I would say well. I know the guys here. I don't know the guys are stories about these guys. These guys ask how such engines before Google as far much like mealtime wasn't interested and then finally had Google and and also sounded like about how loss began. Companies are sell aggregated data. They say they log but attendance do as kind of strange things and having a bit of a hiatus from his I started to open to allow And he really turned me onto what was happening with column. Which was the first I are? Y'All see twenty enabled systems and focused focused on distributed bandwith to so different but general data that during district continuing were for rendering software I thought the same thing was the cans and on his reasoning. He realizes that will what you really want to do. Is also enable multi layer. All these things maybe WANNA thinks through. How attack would work and so it's not to meet up with my found. Us especially by Prime Fox. Jay Freeman who buildouts DEA is not see GIO Magazov sounds built out the whole security framework for him so that cool team We were off to the races. I guess and Garnish support in June of twenty seventeen butts lag. A lot of things I was I was it. Was Kinda. See to underestimate the height. I was really thinking I surprised. By how fast the ICS space boomed and And I wasn't surprised by how soon collapsed but at some the way we've stayed focus is really focus on a mission. Our mission is to create a more open on private Internet There's a lot of layers to that commission. we're not just focused on this one with when we does a company that has a project product mortgage company. The network is off. Was the project would do now. We may do other ones but General Mission is to privacy tools really enable in providence and so we will consider adding application.

"As he treated Laotian villagers, he also passed along information about communist movements and local sentiment to the agency. The crazy thing is that the revelations about duly about Dr America didn't end there. Other revelations about the falsehoods surrounding passage to freedom emerged in the nineteen eighties and nineties. In the late eighties, the US government declassified a report filed all the way back in nineteen, fifty six. The report was filed by US personnel involved in the operation, and they had filed it in protest against Dooley's portrayal of Viet Minh atrocities. Brutal crimes like the chopsticks driven into children's ears were either exaggerated or totally made up. In a nineteen ninety one interview with journalists, Diana Shaw William Lederer, the officer who helped push Julian to the spotlight admitted that quote those things never happened the atrocities he described in his books either never took place or were committed by the French. I traveled all over the country and never saw anything like them. and quote. Norman Baker a Navy Corman who served under duly in Haiphong confirmed that he never saw anything like what to described quote. If, I'd found a priest hanging by his heels with nails hammered in its head. I'd have the whole camp hearing about it. If those atrocities had occurred, human nature would make you talk about it at the time. And Quote Now needless to say revelations like these destroyed more than Dooley's shot at sainthood. They. Also shattered his reputation, his standing in history. The overshadowed the positive impact is work had on the lives of thousands of people in Southeast Asia. Dooley's image of what was happening in places like Vietnam and Laos was so stark. So black and white good and evil that when the truth came out many Americans rejected Dooley's memory entirely. Preferring to paint him as a liar and villain. Seemed almost like the whole story of America in Vietnam in miniature. Men like duly, Lansdale and letter were all helping to hammer out this new story about American Vietnam that was being written in the mid.

He explained that some two hundred targets in Red Russia Red China and the satellite nations could be bombed simultaneously and that this would destroy the potential communism's production for war. then. A few more weeks of all out war would destroy communist forces already in existence. Sure the toll of American lives would be heavy, but the sacrifice would be justified to rid mankind the communist peril before it grew strong enough to lick us. For that matter maybe it was already too late. Slowly, I was beginning to understand pots. The incident had nothing against me. Personally, he just didn't like what I was preaching he himself had a radically different set of ideas and many Americans. I suppose share his views. I do not. The incident had not yet had his full say. Dr Dooley concluded the oldest picture known to modern man. One of the oldest pieces of art in the world is on the walls of a cave in France. It shows men with bows and arrows engaged in man's customary pastime of killing his fellow man. And this will go on forever. Prayers are for old women they have no power.

"Two, big themes defined America's self image in the nineteen fifties. And it's important to understand these to understand what happened in Vietnam. One theme was something called American exceptionalism. Now, all nations have some kind of exceptionalism. It's what defines nation in the first place. What's so special about your group of People The answer to that question could be anything from your food to your fighting skills. American exceptionalism has a long history. Lots of historians and maybe Your High School Textbook, we'll trace it all the way back to New England colonization in the sixteen hundreds. Well by the late nineteen forties and then big time in the nineteen fifties. exceptionalism took on a special meaning. I want to draw on this description from historian Christian. Happy's book American reckoning the Vietnam War and our national identity. And, this book happy suggests that in the post World War Two years exceptionalism had basically become a religion. Quote. The. Fervent faith in American exceptionalism was the nation's most agreed upon religion of the nineteen fifties. It was the central tenet of what was commonly called American identity. At the heart of American exceptionalism was the assumption that the united. States. Was a unique force for good in the world. Although citizens might take pride in their nations armed might or the fact that it had never lost a war. There was also an unquestioned faith that America sought to share its blessings with the world. It was not an imperial aggressor seeking global conquest. It wanted for others only the great gifts enjoyed by Americans themselves freedom of speech freedom of religion and Free Enterprise. It would use its power to protect and advance those freedoms, but never to assert its narrow national interests and never without clear provocation or just 'cause. End Quote. exceptionalism was one big theme of American identity than the second was religious faith. It's hard to overestimate the power of religion in the nineteen fifties. Two thirds of the country belonged to a religious community. And some polls ninety, nine percent said they believed in God. The nineteen, fifty, two revised standard version of the Bible sold twenty, six, million copies. Linking religion to national identity President Eisenhower in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, five speech to the American Legion. said that quote. Without God could be no American form of government. In American way of life. Recognition of the supreme being is the first the most. Expression. Of. Americanism. and quote. It should come as no surprise then that these twin faiths in religion and exceptionalism influenced how Americans saw their role in the world.

One of my all all time favorite quotes comes from Abraham Kuyper and he was repeated over and over by Chuck Colson. There's not a single square inch in the whole domain of human existence over which Christ who is sovereign over all does not cry out mine now working out the implications of that grand truth in the reality of our everyday lives well that would take a lifetime lifetime as Christians.

Thus we find our time hijacked assume taken for granted killed wasted even forgotten woz Guinness in this thinks it's time to change our view of time his new book Carpe Diem Redeem seizing the day discerning the Times explores and explains how different views of time shape our culture and our individual lives for example eastern religions embrace a cyclical view of time. All that is once was we'll be over again in this conception history runs kind of like a wheel forever returning to the same point even we in a sense will return according to this view reincarnated renege according to the dictates of Karma the cyclical view ultimately robs our lives of meaning because our choices change nothing time time and everything in it are illusions salvation consist of escaping cycle and along with it every love longing and purpose we know as human beings wchs the chronological view of time is the one that dominates our culture according to Guinness and it's held by both optimist and Pessimist Enlightenment thinkers and even many secularised dealers today see time as that inevitable upward march toward greater knowledge greater peace greater civilisation.

"At one point a representative from the plot came up to heath as he was sipping his drink and asked him point blank is it all right to go ahead and change the government? The ambassador warned the State Department that the situation in the south was dire. It was obvious that the Vietnamese factions were cooperating against CNN and that the French were onboard. Heath predicted a coup within a few days especially if Sam took action against the military of specifically trying to fire. General Hin. A couple of weeks later looked like, Heath's prediction really was about to come true. The spark was JIM's response to a meeting on September fifth and Saigon of Sixteen Vienna officers including the general and two of his most loyal subordinates colonel. Lamb, and colonel. Gye According to reports from one of GM's. Hin called the meeting to order and told the officers that only the National Army could save Vietnam from communism. Colonel Lamb this subordinate of his lead, the meeting declaring that the army stood against quote the M Communism Bow, die and colonialism. GM pushed this into crisis mode by arresting the two colonels and ordering General Hin to take a six month what he called a study mission in France. It was clear. This was the first move towards eventually firing Vienna's top officer and Hin to put it mildly do not take this. Well, he tore through the streets on his motorcycle flying a big text version of GM's order basically announcing that he was untouchable. When he wasn't stunting on the premier, he barricaded himself in his home surrounded by military guards. The Vienna is radio station began firing off broadcasts openly denouncing the premiere. It was only frantic negotiation by US French officials that stop this from devolving into open civil war. If DM couldn't fight his stubborn general head on which he couldn't. He didn't have enough loyal soldiers for that. He could try to outflank him politically. On, September twenty fourth GM formed a new cabinet where he tried to use the religious militia's as bargaining chips. gave out political favors to the religious groups to try to put pressure.

"This period was kind of a fork in the road, for South Vietnam. One four lead to rule by coalitions and attempt to balance the different forces and interests in this new. Society The other four lead to an autocracy which would try to keep a lid on all those same forces. We're going to explore this battle in some detail because the outcome had such important consequences for the whole history, not just a Vietnam but for the US to. This was a battle that was Pope Leslie obscure to most Americans at the time even the ones on the spot you know one point in American ambassadors going to throw up his hands and say, don't ask me to explain this Gobbledygook. But millions of Vietnamese and Americans would feel the consequences of this battle later down the line. I don't think it's overstating it to say that a lot of the history of America in Vietnam hinged on GM's answer to the problems facing him in nineteen, fifty four. His survival, his rule, his assassination, the instability, the US intervention that followed a lot of that can be traced back to the way this crisis turned out. It all began with the army and it's francophile leader General Hin. For GM getting the military under control was absolutely vital if he was going to subdue the other groups and cement his control over this, not quite a country, well, he'd need an army for that. And he came to Saigon convinced that General Hin would have to go. How do you play the game of divide and conquer? Well, you play your enemies off against each other. In mid July, it looked like Kim was already making progress. Jan met secretly with cowed I commanders and low and behold a few days. Later, there was a pro GM parade through the streets of Saigon Cow Die Followers Catholics shouting slogans together carrying signs in favor of the regime. But then in August things fell apart. You see General Hin was also playing the game of divide and conquer. He in the French government wanted to replace them with someone a little more pliable a little more pro. French. And they were also scheming with the religious militia's. The situation over this whole year and a half is GONNA change daily. It's one of the real challenges actually in trying to tell the story. It's impossible for me to take you through every twist and turn here. It's Kinda like a square dance in the dark with partners changing and stumbling never entirely clear. WHO's really with WHO?.

"It was already too late. Bowed. I had given the job to someone else and other nationalist leader named Tran Trung Kim. and GM was left out in the cold. Might have kicked himself for refusing this offer but in the long run, it was just as well that he turned it down. Not only was the new empire of Vietnam Julia Japanese puppet state. It also only lasted about five minutes. In August nineteen forty-five America dropped nukes on Hiroshima and Nagasaki ending the war in the Pacific basically overnight. In Vietnam, which had been divided and By foreigners for nearly a century, there was now nothing but a breeze blowing through the vacuum where an empire had once been. In a matter of days, a communist group called the Viet. Minh came down out of the jungles and mountains of northern Vietnam to fill that vacuum. The. Viet Minh were not especially strong nine, hundred, forty, five. They spent World War Two, operating out of a cave near a hill that their leader Hoochie men named after Karl Marx and a stream that he named after. Lenin. They had a few inexperienced soldiers armed with old rifles and no heavy equipment to speak of. But the Viet men had the initiative in ways that no other nationalist group in Vietnam could really claim. During a famine that had killed millions in nineteen, forty, five, the Viet Minh had broken open granny's attacked landlords and fed starving peasants. As much or more than their left wing politics. It was food that helped the Viet Minh claimed the leadership of Vietnam. On September, second in a speech in the northern city of Hanoi Ho Chee Minh proclaimed the true independence of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. Or so it seemed. The thing is it's one thing to proclaim a new country. It. was another thing to actually unite Vietnamese around this new government. For. One thing Vietnam hadn't been politically unified in a long time. As we've seen the French had ruled it as three separate colonies and on top of that, the Vietnamese were divided over what kind of society they actually wanted. As we've seen, there were plenty of people whose worst nightmare was to see their country go communist. And on top of all of that, there was this looming threat that the French would move in and try to take back their imperial crown jewel. For the Viet Minh in nineteen, forty, five, the clock was ticking. They had a rapidly closing window to bring as many key non-communists into their government as they could. It had to at least look like the Viet Minh represented all Vietnam not just a radical fringe. This brings us to a moment in the story that so good. It's like something out of a movie. Because among those key nationalists that hotel men wanted to bring into his government one of the most important was no Dinh Diem. We now know with our wonderful gift of hindsight that in about a decade, these two men would be running rival regimes. They'd be locked for nine years in a battle over what kind of society their new Vietnam would be. And before all of that here, they were face to face in nineteen, forty, five when Ho. Tsim in ordered him to be arrested and brought North for yet another job interview. For the third time in his life, and for the second time in a year, zoom was offered a position at the heart of Vietnamese government. Knowing about their later rivalry, it's tantalizing to imagine what history would have looked like if he had said yes. The thing is though just like his job offer from bow di Di Diem had a lot of reasons to say no to this one. For one thing in September nineteen, forty, five, the Viet Minh had arrested and killed two of his family members, his brother node in Koi and his nephew no in Juan. According to some, they were buried alive. Another reason to say, no, was that diem was a Catholic and Catholicism and Communism just don't job very well. If, you think back, GM had also spent his career fighting Vietnam political left wing. Was a country dominated by the Viet. Minh. Really the kind of country he had been fighting for. This encounter with Hokey men would become a cornerstone of TM's personal legend. In his telling, he set himself up this kind of rock standing against communism facing down the top Vietnamese leader with steely unshakable determination. Here's how he described this conversation to American journalist Stanley car now in nineteen sixty. Quote. Ziam. What do you want of me? Poaching replies I want to you what you've always wanted me your cooperation in gaining independence. We seek the same thing we should work together. GM You are criminal who has burned and destroyed the countryside and you have held me prisoner Ho. I apologize for that unfortunate incident. When people who have been oppressed revolt mistakes are inevitable tragedies occur but always I believe that the welfare of the people outweighs such errors. You have grievances against us, but let's forget them. DM. You want me to forget that your followers killed my brother. Oh. I knew nothing of it. I had nothing to do with your brother's death I deplore such excesses as much as you do. How could I have done such a thing when I gave the order to have you brought here? Not only that but I have brought you here to take a position of high importance in our government. GM. And his son are only two of the hundreds who have died. And hundreds more who have been betrayed. How can you dare to invite me to work with you? Hope. Your mind is focused on the past think of the future education improved standards of living for the people. GM. You speak a language without conscience I work for the good of the nation but I cannot be influenced by pressure. I am a free man. I shall always be a free man. Look me in the face. Am I a man who fears oppression or death? You are Freeman. End Quote. Now the last thing we should do is to hear this story and think that this was the way it actually went down at. The theater of it is wonderful, but you have to remember the context for this. This was version of the story that's developed a little later on WHO's a different context he was presenting it to Americans who by the way we're very intent in nineteen sixty on controlling him and his government. So you have to keep in mind that when he tells this story, this line about I cannot be influenced by pressure keep in mind that is tailor made for an American audience in a leader context. Now none of that changes. The fact that Em's telling of this story was brilliant. In this version he was like Kennedy in the Cuban missile crisis, he stood eyeball to eyeball with the commies and the other guy linked, right? It showed leadership showed character. It showed that was better dead than red. And it communicated something else to told his American audience that he was a stubborn son of a bitch who could not be controlled. We actually know that this is not quite how the conversation went down..

"The top of his class in nineteen twenty one. Within a year, he was a district chief riding on horseback between the seventy villages under his control. By the age of twenty eight, he was in charge of three hundred villages in the province of Ninh Thuan. So. There's that traditionalist to gems life. Some writers and journalists love to stress that side of him, his identity as a Confucian and a mandarin some of the earliest books about him in the nineteen sixties had titles like the last Mandarin or last of the confusions. But as I mentioned, he was also a product of European ideas, European religion and European empires. The French had occupied them controlled his country and the neighboring ones since the late nineteenth century. In fact Wednesay was born in nineteen no one. There hadn't been a single Vietnam for a The French started by carving off southern. Vietnam, turning it into a colony called coaching China. Central Vietnam became the protectorate of a non ruled by a puppet. Emperor. They turned the north into a second protectorate call Talkin centered on the port of Haiphong and the city of Hanoi. Long before the era that most Americans know about in the Vietnam. War, with the competing states of North and South Vietnam, the country was already deeply divided place. When Zia was born, these three Vietnamese provinces were all part of region called Indochina. It also included the modern day countries of Cambodia and Laos. Indochina was the. Of the French Empire. It was a source not only for vital resources like rubber and rice. It was also a source of prestige. In. The Grand Imperial pissing contest of the late nineteenth century Francis colonies in Asia showed the world that it was a first rate power. and to run those colonies and keep them inside the empire, the French drew on the talent prestige and local knowledge of Indochinese elites. Dem's family was part of that elite. His father, no Denka was Vietnamese Mandarin like we mentioned before. But Carl was also the first headmaster of the French National Academy, a school that groomed young Vietnamese men for service in the administration. The no family and I'M GONNA sign post. This right here put big neon lights around it as being really important. They were also devoutly Catholic. In fact, in some accounts, they were among the first Vietnamese to convert to Catholicism way back when missionaries first arrived in the sixteen hundreds. see'ums Catholicism played a huge role in his rise to power and shaped his policies once he became president. He was baptized under a Vietnamese version of name jean-baptiste and grew up attending daily mass. For a while he even chased a career as a priest alongside his older brother note in Tuck who eventually became one of the first Vietnamese bishops. Him eventually dropped out of the priesthood, but he did take a vow of celibacy. Apart from a short romance with the daughter of one of his teachers Ziam. Certainly upheld that vow for the rest of his life. With his intellectual DNA shaped by these strands of Confucianism and Catholicism Diem was absolutely a product of this imperial world. A third strand may be the most important one was nationalism. The early twentieth century was a time of rising nationalist movements all throughout Asia and glance at the map tells you why. Western empires dominated this part of the world. The French Indochina the Dutch in Indonesia. The British in India and Malaysia the United States in the Philippines. And for non-european Empires, let's not forget about Japan a rising power with its eye on taking some of those European territories for its own. China was only one place where Asian movements were beginning to rise up and push for concessions from these imperial powers. GM grew up alongside these movements. This. Modern movement shaped his life every bit as much as the older ones of Confucianism and Catholicism. But there was a catch. In Indochina, like in other Asian territories, the nationalists disagreed about what kind of society they actually want it. There was no single Vietnamese movement. Instead, there were rival factions who often distrusted and despised one another as much as they. All hated the French. For GM and many other nationalists from the Vietnamese elite. The most glaring grown threat was communism. Vietnamese communists as you may know, would eventually become the number one threat to GM's rule when he became president in the nineteen. Fifties. He would spend pretty much his whole time in office fighting them in long and frustrating war. The origins of this opposition to communism actually began much earlier during his time as a young province chief. In nineteen twenty, five PM discovered communist propaganda in his province and fought back with a pamphlet writing campaign of his own. He had second experience with Communism in Nineteen thirty when peasants rose up in his province of been Thuan. This was no isolated incident. The communists in been Thuan were part of a rising wave of anti-french actions from a whole range of Vietnamese groups. But Ziam like all other league nationalists he wanted to revolution but not this kind. On top of that, he was convinced that the uprisings in nineteen thirty were too scattered week to pose a real challenge to French rule. He ended up actually siding with the French and by nineteen thirty one, the uprisings collapsed in the face of bloodshed and arrests. Two years later, GM star Ruse again when he scored a job in the government of a puppet emperor named Bow Die. It was the start of along and Relationship. They had some common ground. They were both nationalists who hoped for an independent Vietnam at sometime in the future. But Bow die who had taken the throne when he was just a boy of thirteen was trapped in his position as a French puppet. The French were known to depose emperors who didn't play Nice and do as they were told. And bowed I was also in a lot of ways kind of French himself. He was deeply conditioned by his education that had taken place in France? I like this sympathetic but critical portrait of bow die from diplomatic historian George herring quote. The much-maligned Playboy emperor was in fact a tragic figure. In intelligent man genuinely concerned about the future of his nation, he had spent most of his life as a puppet of France and then Japan, whiling away the years by indulging apparently insatiable taste for sports, cars, women, and gambling. The emperor may have wished to become a leader, but he lacked the temperament to do so. Introverted and given to moods of depression and indolence. He lived in isolation in one of his palaces or aboard his six hundred ton air conditioned yacht or escaped to the French Riviera. All the while salting away large sums of money in Swiss bank accounts not the stuff of which Churchill's are made. US Ambassador Donald Heath lamented with marvelous understatement. and.
