PJ ORourke and the search for the centre ground

"These last five years or so have been rough going for a lot of people. Among, them have been those who think of themselves as occupants more or less of the middle of the road, the zealous, the bipartisan the consider as of arguments on their own merits compromises count we all just get along is. So. Polarizing have these times being that even some of those who might in less crazed and Febrile Times have been considered ideological out lawyers appear suddenly reasonable. Special. Guest this week is PJ O'Rourke, the journalist foreign correspondent and satirist who made his name as a conservative contrarian in the nineteen eighty, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety s gleefully winding up the liberal subscribers of rolling stone and writing bestselling books including Republican, Party reptile give war a chance and peace kills a rock became if possibly despite himself, the favorite conservative of American liberals being about as much a liberal as American conservatives could stand. His latest book a cry from the farm middle dispatches from the divided land fines rourke. If not exactly standing afford history yelling stop. Then at least flailing gamely at the on rushing tide of dogmatic foolishness with the broom of measured reason and not once does he mangle metaphor nearly as grotesquely that this is the last episode of this program which will be broadcast before a rox fellow Americans make a fairly fundamental decision about what their politics is going to look like from here on can the centre-ground be retaken and is anyone still there? This is the foreign desk. The anarchistic Listrik point of view that is common at the end of the teens in the beginning of the twenties and on for those of us who matured very late. Reality shake you out of that I mean anybody who tells me are an anarchist I'll invite them to revisit Mogadishu with me. Let me show you what anarchy really means. Now non nealer hand is sort of like armed nitwit trump supporters. Maybe should have had a little goal at Northern Ireland back in the eighties. Where that road leads, if you WANNA take that road all the way down to the end of that road Belfast was. Enlightening experience as we're the Balkans and so and saw that light goes to mitigate. Once absolutism and certainly once anarchism knowle's. Page or you welcome to the foreign desk this episode may end up appearing as either the last signal before the ship sinks or the fanfare perhaps of some new door and we need to frame our conversation accordingly indeed find a middle ground which I think is appropriate to certainly the theme of Your New Book the title a cry from the Far Middle Does seem to book in Republican Party. Reptile from Nineteen eighty-seven to an extent. But the question is can the middle ground be made to sound atl sexy and exciting? No. I'm Sir Short Answer. Thank you for joining us. PJ. House that was a quick interview of Frank Answer and a One one been looking for a certain amount of honesty in politics. I just saw something the other day I saw the first honest yard sign that I have seen over here in the states this election campaign, it said settle for Biden. If it weren't for the pandemic I would've gone knocked on their door and give them the big. Hug. But is there a way you think that centrism can be made to sound at all exciting could there be a centrist party reptile. Yeah, it would be very tough, but you know it really I just want to go back to US fighting in our usual way I don't want to put an end to our quarrels with some sort of sweet and mushy kiss on both cheeks wall befriends from now on and forever no I want to go back to a good strong fight between the left and the right. Trouble is to fight has gotten away from the issues. You know the coral it's one of those things like a good old family feud. Coming from an enormous Irish family I am plenty familiar with us. A good family feud where the cause of the the anger is long forgotten and people are just screaming and yelling at each other and threatening each other and misbehaving. In general we want a period where the left and right really had to confront themselves. They had to confront the failure of communism, which is leftism taken to its greatest extreme. The left had to confront the failure of that Ed to confront the failure of their socialist economies in western Europe in in the UK and so on. The right had to then confront the fact that it was much less fund should be empower under Reagan and Thatcher. Then it was to be standing outside pressing your face against window making grievances and obscene gestures and turned out that the free market. Lovely thing though it is, it doesn't solve all our problems magically either so we had to fight that album. It's now been. So long ago since we had those substantive fights that we've forgotten how to argue. So my comparison I don't think actually put this in the book, but missing about sense is that. Are Put aglow arguments have ceased to be real political arguments about real issues as say, no, do we increase the scope of the national health improve its funding and operation or do we modify? It means tested? Give a little larger scope to the private sector Blah Blah. Blah Instead. It's one of those things and anybody who's been in a marriage or partnership it starts out with shall We re Slip Cover the SOFA and it ends up with, and then there was a woman you were flirting with that party in Nineteen ninety-one to which the other half of the partnership response I hate your mother I'd never settled out but I hate your mother, you know.

"To make as well so let's first just talk about products surface area. Sure so free co camp is really three different core applications. There's the curriculum and. Portfolios? That's one of the pillars. And that is all custom code part. That's when we say the platform nationally what we're talking about we also have. A free co Camp Dot Org Slash News, which is our publication and published several articles today they're often in-depth explanatory journalism about technology. Then we have the free forum, and that's the third pillar of Free Co camp now. All three of those run on separate servers, the free cocaine forum is powered by discourse, which is a really cool self hosted open source form tool created by the founder of flow. Jeff Atwood in his. And that's very well maintained, and you can get your own discourse running really easily if you want to. You can just deploy to the cloud, and it'll live on its own server in docker container, and there you go. Same thing with free. Co Camp Dot org slash news that is running on ghost, which is another self hosted open source project that just released version three of their tool, and it's like wordpress, but it doesn't have a lot of the baggage that comes with wordpress. wordpress is excellent. But it does have some vulnerabilities in it does have. A very complicated plugin system in wordpress is trying to do a lot of things whereas ghost is just trying to be. A publication tool. So we have maybe. Seven thousand articles on. Free Co powder slash news at this point and we have. Hundreds of thousands of posts on free cochem dot org slash. So those are those who now if you want, I can drill into what powers the frequent camp platform the core curriculum. Please do yeah, so we are running. React on the front end. We're running known. As the back end were running a tool called loop. which is. An API tool. It essentially turns your rap into an API where all the routes. Can, confess chase on as well they shemale.

We ease Mogadishu for database and we have managed cluster. On 'em lab and we're working on moving that over to Mugabe's new atlas tool. Atlas. 'EM! Lab was acquired by Manga to be recently, so they're kind of sunsetting 'em lab. I think so. We're in the process of moving everything over. To have a big sharded system because we have a lot of data. We've got millions of records, and each of those records has these of challenge completions. And a whole lot of other data that they've added to their portfolio and the portfolios themselves were working on growing them, and making them a lot richer in terms of just having a lot more data like you can submit a whole different projects you've built from. Outside of the Free Co curriculum as well if you built your own. Jobs script game for example you could submit that and turn that into a kind of like a Lincoln light four developers, so we're working on that the platform itself in terms of the curriculum. Is. A gatsby APP and you hit that. Euro Free Co Camp Dot org slash learn and the entire curriculum loads. And it stays in your browser. It.

Somalia and Kenya have gone very close to going to war with each other and may get close. Astill the battlefield is jubilant. One of Somalia's five semi autonomous states. It lies just across Somalia's border with Kenya. Kenya regards drew ballooned as a vital buffet. Between it and Al Shabaab the fanatical Islamist militia which wreaks most of its havoc in Somalia but has also been responsible for large scale outrages in Kenya including the two thousand and thirteen attack on the West Gate Shopping Mall in Nairobi and the two thousand and fifteen attack on a university campus in Garissa accordingly Kenya has cultivated friendly relations with Jubal lands regional government and with jubilant president.

Can US troops injury ballooned are not seeing as style occupiers? However indeed President Mugabe's regional government seems to get on better with Nairobi than it does with Mogadishu. The most recent unpleasantness appears to have begun with fighting between drew balloons own forces and Somali government troops the jubilation soldiers retreated over the border into Kenya and the Somali troops followed them.

A diplomatic exchanges between Kenya and Somalia. Since have been terse verging on abrupt. Kenya has jumped about an unwarranted attack on its sovereign territory by foreign soldiers and so forth.

Kenya's desire to put physical distance between itself. And the PESTILENTIAL MARAUDERS OF AL. Shabaab is reasonable enough but it may not be the only or even the main reason why relations between Arab and Mogadishu have deteriorated as far as they have excitingly for fans of obscure maritime territorial disputes and. Come on who isn't the two countries are also at odds of a sea border. Exactly is the area in contention the border of the two countries when it comes to the seats and the only way to explain where the disputed portion of Indian Ocean is without incurring angry correspondence from either Kenya or Somalia. Although to risk inviting saving emails from both is to say that it's either off Somalia's southern coast all of Kenya's Northern Coast. It will come as little surprise to listeners that the stretch of Ocean in question abounds with oil and gas deposits. Nineteen outbreak may focus Kenyan and Somali attention elsewhere and or it may offer a party to this argument what it perceives as cover for decisive action. There has been some suggestion.

"Mogadishu? Below flat. Well, one thing it's very important. Abba, car is we discuss the the the road infrastructure, not only in Somalia in east Africa. But across the continent aviation has a very very long history in in east Africa starting in nineteen twenty seven with the incredible East African flying club out of Nairobi Wilson airport in Nairobi, and you and I've been Nairobi before and know, the aviation operations there, and how many people depend upon not only from a commercial perspective a cargo operations to safaris tour companies and even aid delivery of aid to more remote areas that need to reach people who cannot otherwise rely upon road transportation. So the national carrier is it very very important. And I know it's a project of from Agios government president for machos government. And how we must. Six seed in the successful relaunch of this airline for the for the the important cultural impact that that has for the the pride of the Somali people to see their flag carrier flying. Again, your estimation. Is it could be a half a million people welcoming the first flight of the inaugural on reflate of the small airlines carriers is that your estimation? Humility. Country.

"Eventually he did pay them. And then they were able to. To return me the phone, but it was not a good experience in at that point. I was ready for him to take me right to the airport. I was ready to go and get out of there. Was it a good picture though? It was not actually it was a sign that said Bioko, and I just I saw it. And I thought well, this is that will show that I'm here in Mali. So I'll take it. It was a faded sign. It was nothing. Great. So. Okay. So that's a bit scary. No one likes getting detained by the police in a developing country. You also spoke about that fifty five foot wave that almost took the entire bulletin seven hundred students. What's another moment on the road? It can be uncomfortable. Can be scary. It can be dangerous could be a health issue could be a car accident. What what's happened on the road where you're like, I shouldn't be traveling anymore. So just about a little over week, you go I was in Mogadishu Somalia, and as a case where I plan the trip seeing other people who'd been there fairly recently. And you see what someone else does I'm guilty of this. Then I think that's okay, I can do this too. And so looking at pictures and everything I was excited I can handle this. And then a couple days before I was supposed to arrive there. I'm looking up information and information was coming out about someone who had been kidnapped there. And she was detain. She was held for fifteen months. I believe and I started to kind of panic about it a couple travelers who'd recently been there. I was able to communicate with and they kind of. Helped me calm down a little bit about it. But I was at the point where if my flight had not gone off. If I miss my flight in Robie into Mogadishu. It don't know if I would have rescheduled in. So the whole time I was there. I was pretty panicked about the experience. Okay. So I'm going to take one step back in the question you, so you're doing something pretty audicious you're going to country which has been in civil war for decades. It's dangerous. There's no guarantee why not hard guess this Amalia land. You know? I question myself that as well. I like I said right before I started think I should have gone to Somaliland. Why am I doing this to myself and for a while there? I didn't feel like personally I was willing to count Somaliland as Somalia, but I'm doing this for myself. I'm not doing this for a record. This is a personal goal. And I started to think why are you doing this to yourself on that point? You know, it was booked. It was sad. And I went through with it. And we've had a number of guests Goethe Moberg. But I'm always curious to hear about the experiences were you there one to night were you with the full security apparatus give a brief overview of what it's like to be in Mogadishu on vacation. Which is maybe an oxymoron, yeah. I don't know if I'd call that a vacation quite but I was there for two nights. And I did have a full security team for just myself. I had a five guards. My car was also driven by one of the heads with the Somali police I had a guide, and there was a driver for the other car, so total of eight people just just for me alone..

"And I tried to show them a piece of money, and they ask them how much it was worth the US fellers. And they let me come inside. It turns out it wasn't even a Bank customers really was like a commercial Bank. But they let me come in. And they started talking amongst themselves. And that's when I realized they explained to me that actually it was not worth a dollar thirty is really thirteen dollars. And I. Really? Pretty beside myself. And they brought a woman down who spoke great English. And she immediately was so helpful to me, she told me, you know, what you're not gonna be able to exchange the money here in a Bank. But don't worry. It's okay. I'm going to take you with me. We're gonna we're gonna make this all better. We're going to take you somewhere to exchange the money back into US dollars. And then once I got to know her she brought me up into her office while she finished her work. She took me to exchange money. In fact, she even got her driver because she said he would get a better rate than we would as is women. And then she invited me to her sister's home where they provided me with an amazing lunch of local local food, and they even gave me a gift of a beautiful necklace in airings and everything and she actually tried to invite me to stay with her. She knew that there was the place. I was staying at was. Not the best area in town. And she really wanted to invite me over when I said, no, that's okay. She told me if there's anything at all to call her. She was winning leave her phone on that night. If I needed to contact her if no one picked me up to go to the airport, and she would send her driver. So just the most kind woman that is pretty awesome to say the least. So the those are the stories that I love in. I think those are some of the stories that you can remember for a long time out of curiosity. What was the most expensive item that you bought? Did you buy a eighteen dollar coke or anything of that nature? So I ended up spending thirty five dollars on some chicken that should have cost me like three fifty and then I managed to tip. The man who got me the chicken a so in the end, I was out almost fifty bucks anti. Actually came back to it was someone actually worked in the hotel. So when I was dropped back off at the hotel. I went in and and I found. Another man who were there, and I was using my phone to translate in in Google translate. And I explained on their wedded happened any called the guy back, and I think it's probably partially the kindergarten teacher in me. But I gave him quite a scolding about it. And we actually did manage to get the money back. He I think just thought, hey, this is a great opportunity for him to make a little extra money. And I tried to explain to him like I understand, but that was wrong. So so scale one to ten how tasty was that fifty dollars chicken? I was actually so bad. I threw it out about eating it. So glad to get the money back on that actually. Okay. So let's look a little bit more about your style. Are you a sole travel or friends, but who why do you like to do it? I'm mostly a solo traveler, I'm pretty used. To traveling alone being on my own, and especially as I got further into this. It was hard to find people interested when you say planning a trip to Somalia, I'm planning a trip to Central African Republic. Hold on, Geno. You're telling me, there's not a lot of friends at work. But don't want to go to Mogadishu..
