Northern Ireland conflict 50 years on: will a no-deal Brexit threaten the peace?
"We we're speaking briefly a bit earlier about northern ireland and we're also speaking earlier in this conversation about how important it is for international attention to stay stay fixed on peace processes to ensure that nobody loses interest in northern ireland has of course become topical again regrettably these last few few years or so in general though how vulnerable peace processes to unexpected outside shocks as for example brexit might prove we've to the good friday accords that certainly vulnerable and i think the degree of under ability is unpredictable and depends on many factors but it also also shines. A light on the sense of what sort of progress has been made so festival. I think it's really important to recognize in northern ireland extraordinary. Sorry johnny has been traveled from times where violence was used to resolve problems to one in which politics is used flawed. It may be in in many ways it. There is still a political process there now. The question is how entrenched is that having trenched of the institutions how entrenched is the mindset of transformation asian and i i'd like to think northern ireland sufficient entrenched there will be a return to violence but what's important is never to be complacent. Never ever to forget about the need to keep working. Multiple levels of society not just to focus on the political level to look at how the communities are working. What the longer term changes it is in in education and provision resources how society fits together and i think what you see in many societies that have gone through peace processes assesses and have reached some kind of agreement the it takes a long time. It's a generational process of change and shocks will come and then the question is how resistant assistant is that society to those shocks and it will vary in different places and i look at mindanao in the philippines where we've been working for many he is and an agreement was reached in two thousand fourteen and it's interesting to see how attention to the philippines the recent is focuses on present taytay and the so-called war against drugs which is in many ways a war against poverty but the peace process mindanao notwithstanding some resumption nevan it has held and it's held because people are being given new opportunities to to frame a new political reality that but it will be buffeted by future changes in the wider political situation in the philippines has no question of

"It's a privilege to welcome to the show my West Point classmate. Tom Anthony, Tom's written several books. One say Bine is made into a movie and our movie of the month. Welcome to freedom on a secondary appreciated. Tom start by telling us about your time in the military. You're timing mother. Army graduated together, what'd you do? The ranger school where we all started Germany nuclear missile unit there and then Fort Campbell recommends training company after that first air calf. He's not. Was ruined it in sixty eight. And after that, I got a little better duty as escort officer for Miss Universe. And also for Joe them out. You know, the time. That's worth the wound. Isn't it? Well, that's. Okay. And then I was reassigned back to the state that I I knew I didn't want to make the army career and wanted to get international business. So I asked for a interesting useful sign that as my last active video Simon and was a science of the comic developments command for field artillery input for chemical biological. And then you stepped into doing what when you got out international business. I was recruited by Firestone. And then moved to act Ohio where I was the administrative assistant to the presence of international company, and they paid for my masters degree in international business, university of Akron, and my first assignment then was to Vienna with responsibility for eastern Europe. Well, you jump around. That's pretty cool then after that to them responsibility for Europe and Africa, and then the world that gets headquarters Akron grows director, I teach plan somehow you ended up in the Philippines. Yeah. How that happened was after Firestone got bought by Bridgestone. I decided it was time for me to do something else and joint universal. Traffic's start startup in Cleveland. Hi, oh. And moved to Asia where I met my wife and Singapore twenty two years ago, and you're married Manila and live eight years in our home in Mindanao in the celibacy. Okay. That explains you're obviously, really strong knowledge of the Philippines. Philippines. I was very much inspired not only been my wife and family, but I don't know on remote on classes, sixty three and also general Fidel Ramos, so classes, fifty who was had been president of the Philippines, and our little club West Point society. The Philippines, gave me a lot of insight and inspired me to try to right. The big movie. Well, you'll you certainly have the right kind of inspiration. Those kind of those those jets were outstanding by any standard you'd like to come up with. That's very true. Okay. Let's talk about you wrote the book first, and then the movie, and therefore why why you wrote the book and talk, I guess, they're sort of mixed in your mind. Yeah. There's a sequel in full year. I wanted to make the big movie rebels of Mindanao, which is about the rising conflict in southeast Asia. And that's pretty good. And I wanted to make it into a movie, but the people that I netted with their director photography and the crew from indulge said, that's too big the start. What what do you got to start with? And I had prequel called MacArthur highway because I visualized MacArthur returning standing in his Jeep with his corncob. Pipe driving along the car highway Belden correctly. And seeing the Philippines that he came back to. And I said, well, I am the director photography said. Well, that's just the background. What's the story? And so I created them the movie Sabine, which is set on that stage. She's a innocent young girl unintentionally sold in the sexy. Everybody your parents. And then I created unique characters to conflict and just let them interact directors such as the corrupt cop the game missionary with kids, evil cockfight or retired prostitute and the English teacher first day in town drives his car into Sabine on the speaks. And that's how the movie Sabine evolved. Well, certainly was something that you it was hard to put down. Once you started watching that thing. I didn't read the book. But I certainly watched the movie it was hard to get away from because you never know. I was going to happen next. That was the idea. Here's a few of listener comments one. Wow. What a different culture, if you're an American like, I think most of my watchers are the culture in the Philippines that you displayed his very very different than ours. It's less wealthy. It's less clean. It's a different. Culture and cultures better or worse than each other. They're just different. It's different. And Burge fighting to the death as a sport. Is that something that is fairly common in the Philippines? Yes, that's very common. I think it goes back to the bow fight and the influence at that that the Spanish occupation of the Philippines, brought to their culture and the puck by go out of the big dollar every weekend out city where we lived in other places, and it is definitely part of the culture in. Yes, it's different. And that's what I wanted to show in my books and movies about this place Mindanao, it'd be don't know about and many people haven't even heard about. Indeed, what was shocking to me because I know a bit about the Philippines was one family selling their daughter understand poor and you have to do something. Well, it was not their intention. They thought they were getting her a real job at a wedding dress. Rental shop. But that's not the way it worked out. Okay. And then then she was attacked and the guy cut off her ears and fed them to the cat. Yes. And she runs up onto the street where she's accidentally hit by the English teacher who thought he hurt her. And that is really where the rest of the story begins where she learns what happened and meets people and ends up with a boyfriend, maybe husband who is the last person in the world you'd expect. Yes. A year passes the evil biter also cuts off his ears in a dispute, so they have something in common. But they don't know this about each other until they accidentally reconnect in a street down. And they fall in love with each other not knowing who they are. So the guy who cut off her ears who ultimately had his ears cut off the victim and the perpetrator ended up as a couple, and that's how the yeah. That is not your standard movie. That's why it was hard not to watch that thing. It was amazing movie shade at that with the Tom. We're about time about any final last words on the movie that you'd like listeners to take away.

You other contestants there as well with that statement. So that was that was really merged. Katiba and PK was support does not people and van at the time was very happy that we wouldn't have Trump, but I must be honest when also that was in the Trump with him in John didn't didn't float my boat needs to say, really. I mean, Lockton it was only once who into new news on his. Let's that's are really, really started locking him in decided that he was my number one almost. But at that's exact point I would have rather been taken peak. I will Mirisch go. Yeah. Yeah, I know that you know when I spoke to some other contestants, we heard a bit about howling burners perception, especially in those early days, is that in their opinion, he wasn't really playing the game at least a visual perspective. Did you get that same sense as well as that way you said? I like the guy. I don't really wanna work with him. Yeah. The truth of the meta is, as I say, like enough post is also days on Mindanao. He thought he was really part of this amazing bustle vows, but myself, Pika and even and we were Scott just pulled him in to make a fifth. And then we got Martinez to make a six just make us more comfortable. But if there's a picking order Beck, the website Mindanao strong forever and ever. There was never a in LOP and this out and savvy has a whole different game play, and we save Mindanao Cueva Vanna would have been. They would have been a six people in lines and he probably would have been one of the first people if he was not in the top three or four the and he actually didn't realize that.

So it's very interesting how lights on said he built the bus, and I was like, bro, you built the mooch bus, but you didn't actually build about food. It. Now, two buses there's creamery and emerge muster running side by side. Yes, an hour bus was a party bus, but the merge festival is not the party. The school buzzing, I gotta go to school now. It's not fun. Doc was not the school bus market was the prison buzz. Much more strict. So you're on this tribe of with, as you mentioned, we're Gerner John ace, and Josie, and this is also when John's refines out a bit about the plan that she was. She was initially the one of a chopping block or Stacy's. Fell on her own sword. Re you ever worried at that point that you know it's two versus to the junk of us in the middle and swing over to the other side? Or were you always confident. I don't think that Sean actually really, really fully understood the gravity of the situation that she was almost an. I don't think at that point she had actually understood. She still felt pretty solid. I think he's still thought very Sipe and she saw that we had to choose to previous on members to pick wolf. So I don't think she actually Kate at that stage and they and because she didn't key. I wasn't scared. Did you feel like since you're working with? I mean, like you said, you were with two people that you didn't necessarily. We're not top of your VIP less in previous stage, but is there something about just being in a smaller tribe as sort of like a marriage of convenience that made you closer to these two personally. Funny enough. It was the, it was actually around about the on new news on it's all sorted actually getting a little bit of irritation towards John. I thought it would tight on Mindanao, but she was into Chinese happened on the smaller trauma actually got a little bit more irritated. I must be honest, and I point it was actually a moment. We are always really considering we win. We Gordon says Trump speaking to Eysenck Joycy on on day one. They such amazing people really enjoyed chatting with him..

And then you have on your like, I don't wanna come back here. Exactly off the same trouble causes a few times like dab, Gary through secrets place. I've been here so. But yeah, I was. I wasn't support of of offering the Chinese because I want to see travel did wanna get John. So was it just was it the girl's life? The fact that he'd lied to you all arrangements yet to instantly. And also she was she was too much like, you know, TV doesn't ratio so much like when you guys are seeing when you guys are seeing the seasonal survivor when she could see is just as the fragments of what is she takes place, you know, and as you guys sold, John was very, she was very loud an off there. And living with that all the time was so annoyed plex. You just be gone saying at me, telling people what to do and singing at nights and impersonating at the guy from the guy from the the survival Shelia. I think his name is what's what's his name, the guy that hosts your survivor, those shootings of Jonathan. Jonathan years. Night, a veteran, I would be like, so Johnny. Tell us what would Jonathan say and Jonathan and asandra span about two hours impersonating Jonathan young saw. But it doesn't play in the audio. It's j. e. a. n. thin. That's what I was going for. Zona, Shannon. So frustrating. Others like mice always go, go to go. And you would've told me that was the reason you through the challenge. Like that's not what I would have predicted. It was. It was part of the reason. I mean, we'll also really wanted to see a cost like we were tired of winning. I guess. Well, at what point did the target switch to Stacey Lee when you realize like he really wants to quit the game? I did. Did any of you consider maybe just keeping her in the game against her will and taking John anyway. Yeah, everybody considered the fact that we might be low our numbers. If if Stacy says she's sick and we right John's name anyway. And then next thing Stacey is medically unfit to carry on the game. That means we lost out to people, you know, so. So people were thinking that, okay, it's really not worth it. If station wants to go. Let's let's votes. Stacey, I codes. You know, I go up. They might just be flying, you know, should somebody have an idol? And let's say Sean and Stacy came up with this awesome plan for Stacey to playing the card. Everybody at Stacy, Don. Stacey pulled out an idol. She found some way on the shell something and they know one of our guys because there's a goals aligns then maybe they're right down my name out somebody because Tony Mirsky telling me that my name is thrown there to before. It's like a myself and Tiven that when it gets out. So I didn't really buy this whole Stacey thing. And that's the reason why I wrote John's Anton. So should anything wrong in be like her. I never fall for right. Right. So that travel councils also crazy. 'cause Martinez didn't pick up on some of the signals largely from like Tony more than you and Tevin from what we saw. So what were your feelings through that travel council is that was kind of going Shaked. Always like this guy. 'cause Martinez is really not picking up..
