Don't Use This Mindset in Big Moments
"So i was on a group call this week and this really great topic came up and i wanted to share. What came up in the discussion. Because i think it's a really valuable thing to be aware of especially in poker and what makes poker unique is that there are a handful of experiences that most players are going to have in their poker lifetime. That just aren't like the rest whether it's being a big final table or playing a enormous enormous cash game pot. That is only going to come up a couple times in your life when you're extraordinarily deep against a very special kind of opponent or if you are playing on a stream for the first time in your life and all your friends and family are going to be watching at home and you just feel as different level of energy right. There's going to be a handful of experiences that you have in poker that just stand out from the rest and so one of the things that people like to say. That really does not serve you at all. When you're entering into these situations is this act like you've been there before right. How many times have you heard. Somebody say like you've been there before so that other people can't pick up on the fact that you're nervous and this is terrible advice and the reason why it's really bad for you is because it encourages you to not have experience that you're actually happening. Which quite often is one. You are very excited and to. You are also very scared. And so for the people who say you've been there before they want you to just focus on the part where i'm excited. I wanna really just enjoy being excited. But i want to completely ignore being scared because not productive. That's not going to help. But what's actually true is that it's the actual act of pretending that you are not scared of packing away of not facing that head on that is creating the tension inside you. That's going to cause you to punt. That's going to cause you to tilt. That's going to cause you to play too fast or play to slow or get stuck in a spot that you really regret later. The reason why you slip into that is because you slipped out of presence and the moment you slip out of presence is the moment when you deny yourself the truth of. I feel this and i feel this. I am excited. And i'm scared so if you want to really maximize those situations those big moments. That aren't going to come around very often in your poker lifetime. What you really need to do is go towards the entire experience that you're having on an emotional level on a psychological level on a body nervous system level and really let yourself acknowledge

Confessions of a New Convert
"Life was exhausting before i allow myself to enjoy the pleasures. The world had to offer but it was exhausting lonely empty after flirting with almost everyone i laid my eyes on at the club and drinking myself to an unbelievable stupor. I'd wake up on the bed on yet. Another stranger who'd introduce himself awkwardly with a subtle suggestion. That i leave since he had to get ready for work or worse still be woken to be told to leave since he didn't want anyone sleeping over. What was the fun in that. I was lazy. I'd admit that i didn't see why i should subject myself to a torturous to five routine when funding my goodies and being serviceable earning more than the decent worker. But it was enough. Even when i would resolve the clean up my act after the last one i found myself back in another pot. Man's bed why the money just seem to fly away to survive. I had to go back like a dog going back to its vomit. I was tired the life. I knew it wasn't working. I needed a magical way to straighten myself up and get me right on track. And i'd organize a pity party for myself with bottle of vodka with every belch. I promise myself. I'd find a way. It was during one of my pity parties. When i heard a knock on my door. I knew it had to be one of those. Jesus crusaders so i thought to ignore it but the persistence of the knock caught me off the couch and to the door with a reply ready to roll off my tongue the second by the door with a cute face and dashing smile made me lose my thoughts for a moment so i wasn't able to give him my usual. I'm busy excuse in time. May i come in my intoxicated. Mind was trying to figure out why clean looking guy was at my door. My head nodded without my permission. He and asked if he could said when i did this time with partial consent from my mental faculty.
S6 E12 - This is how to get (financially) healthy
"Your housing your food your transportation and then medical and absolute necessities so if you have prescriptions or you've had doctor's appointments or you absolutely have to have daycare because you don't have family or friends that can watch and you have to pay for daycare. Those are absolute necessities. Everything else is extra fluff lifestyle spending. So when you're going through and figuring everything out these four things need to be taken care of welcome to another episode of the we serve now. What podcast the show. Where i do my best to answer the questions veterans and their families are already asking so you can make your post military life your best life. My name is aaron perkins. I'm a us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Daddy to amazing kiddos. I'm the author of the resolve book and that is a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through a process of rediscovering. Your life's purpose. After you left the military. And i gotta tell you i have so been looking forward to today's episode because my special guest is here to talk about something that matters to every single one of us is topic money. My guest today is quite boss. Marco is a twelve year navy veteran who deployed in support of operation enduring freedom. He got out got his bachelor of science. Degree started a side gig as a financial coach in two thousand sixteen while working in the nonprofit industry in didn't take marco long to realize that he was struggling with a lot of the same financial issues as the people. He was trying to help so in an attempt to fix his own struggles. Marco applied business cash flow principles to his own finances with an eighteen months. He added nearly one hundred thousand dollars to his net worth and his skills are skills that anyone can use. Marco now has his own financial consulting business. Called live like others. can't marco. it is so good to have you on the show today. Welcome to we serve now. What a thanks for having me on. It's pleasure to be here to serve all the rest of the veterans. They're listening absolutely man absolutely. Been looking forward to have you on the show. So what just take a few minutes and introduce yourself. Tell us a little bit of your back story how you got here. Well you covered a lot of it which was great but like it said so. I served twelve years of military. And when i got out i had a mountain of debt. I think it was like sixty thousand dollars in debt. When i left active duty was going to school got my bachelor business management and when moved down to florida a job. They're kinda help me pay down some more of The debt that ended up having once i got back from afghanistan. 'cause so side note. I went to afghan volunteer to to afghanistan to pay off my consumer debt and paid off the debt and then had a ton of money when i got back and did some investments that were really great but the problem was is. I didn't change my spending habits and some other habits. That i had that were really ingrained so i ended up building up that data again and was down in florida before i moved back home to ohio i ended up with like it probably about another twenty grand worth of debt when i moved back home and i was like said twenty twenty sixteen. I started looking at my personal finances. I got married in two thousand fifteen and after a year of trying to manage to all that we finally got everything into really like one pot start applying the business finance principles to my own personal finances and when i first started i was negative. Twenty five thousand dollars in my net worth so because all everything and i still wanna own twenty five thousand dollars so when i started applying some of those principles and turned it around and it was like oh my gosh in eighteen months be able to get to seventy five thousand and net worth. It was not so. I started taking some of those same principles and teaching some people. I knew some friends. And it's like okay. I really got something here but was really interesting. Is that these same principles basic math principles but these are the same things that have teaching the low income. People that for the nonprofit that i was working at so is really crazy that. There's so much parallel. The only difference is that my mistakes were spectacular because there is a larger amount of income to work with so it's it's really interesting the mindset that we don't teach so i that's what it was like. Okay there's a group of people working in the nonprofit world and the rule low income side of things. There's a whole support system around that but there's very few supports for this this middle class. The wealthy know how to do it. The low income have a ton of support. And when you're trying to make that transition to from low income or even the lower middle-class into an upper middle class even making that transition if you don't have some the fundamentals You're never gonna make it or it's gonna take forever by the time you retire like oh okay now i get. It would have been great thirty years ago. Sure so that's why i got into. That's what i got into being a coach. Cool man all right. So so the first question i have for you is it. It's a simple one. But i think it's one of those things that needs to be addressed because a lot of us find ourselves in a situation where we think that our finances are kind of like a bygone conclusion. You know i grew up in poverty. You know song going to stay in poverty. And so i don't even think about i. Just go through the motions. I you know. I get the car loan. I get credit cards. I get in debt. You know i do all these sayings in. I'm not really focused on my financial health right so when it comes to finances why should i even care. How big of a deal is it. Well i would have to say just starting out. It's actually perfect timing because this last year taught all of us. I mean how many people lost their jobs or were furloughed or laid off and maybe two never even get them back. It can come at any time. And if you're not prepared for it is what a lot of people don't realize is that when they signed their name for alone they're trading future time for something right now and it takes a special type of person to be an entrepreneur to be to be able to go out and create wealth but the majority of americans work for their money as opposed to creating their money. If that makes sense and there's nothing wrong with that. There's nothing wrong going to work and and working a nine to five job you can be in everyday millionaire working a nine to five job you can. It's entirely possible but it's just. It's really crazy that when when wrenches thrown into it that we lose traction so fast if thing was like bank rate. It's on the ads that you've been running for me so it's six hundred ten. Ten people don't budget seven ten barely budget. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck. It's it's crazy as stupid number. Eighty percent of the people in the us are living paycheck to paycheck. That's nuts. That really is so eight out of ten people living paycheck to paycheck. Just you know if if you miss a paycheck or like you just mentioned you lose your job because of whatever reason pandemic or anything else. It's a huge impact. Not just. I don't know how i'm gonna pay bills for the next couple of weeks but it can like really really set you back. I think it's a perfect setup to talk about. What you just mentioned budgeting a little bit right. A lot of people don't budget so let's say for example. I know what a budget is. You know i've heard the term of. I've seen it on the news talk about but i've never tried it for me and for my family. Can you give us an insight into that. Like where do you even get started. Well sure an you can do a search on the internet for how i do a budget and almost all of them are going to give you the first piece of bad advice that you will ever hear when it comes to budgeting track your expenses for the next month. No you don't have to track your expenses for the next month. You know why because what you do. This month is the exact same thing he did last month. Just pull your bank statements. Look at your bank statements. That will is a great snapshot of your personal financial behavior and what your lifestyle choices are and when you take a look at that then you've got you've got gotta place all of those into a it or as we'll talk a little bit here a of a wall for foundation. There are four things that you have to take care of everything else is fluff and you can create whatever whatever other buckets you wine or i mean flake from an accounting. Were coming perspective. These are lineups okay. So you've got you've got your income and your expenses and then your expenses or all of your line break it down and then it breaks down even further when you file your taxes so every category that you make is a line item but there's four that are super important. Four and a lot of the times people tried to budget everything and they say okay budget down every last dollar and even the even the dollars that you're gonna put into savings if you don't have a good foundation to take care of the basic things that you need to have. It doesn't matter what you put into savings. It doesn't matter what what you spend on clothes. It doesn't excuse me it doesn't matter what what extra expenses and entertainment things that you wanna do. You've got to have these four things. Take care of i and what's interesting about them. Is it lines up. Perfectly with maslow's hierarchy and i'll leave it at that for further on all right so talk to us a little bit more about the four walls right. You mentioned the four walls and you know unite chatted about these a little bit before we go kind of hit the record button here as we were preparing for the show but that i'd never heard that term before the four walls. Can you explain like what those four walls are shirt. A quick back story on on the four walls. Is that if you do any personal financial searching on the internet. You're probably gonna come across the name. Dave ramsey dave ramsey. Oh yes some guy of phenomenal mindset really. Is there some things. Because i'm a business guy. There's some things that i can't entirely subscribe to because for me personally. There is some good debt. Because i'm a business guy. I used other people's money to make more money for my business. So that i can go ahead and potentially hire somebody in sure. Grow the economy that right right so for me. There is some good data. But from dave ramsey's perspective. There's no debt is good so the four walls are the four basic things that you need to survive. And when i say talking about maslow's hierarchy the bottom two levels of maslow's hierarchy pyramid are psychological and safety and that deals with food shelter and essentially money and i clued transportation in that because you need transportation get to and from work sir so the four walls are actually order. I it's it's your housing your food your transportation and then i. I don't like saying catch off for this last one but medical and other absolute necessities. So if you have prescriptions or you've had doctor's appointments or you absolutely have to have daycare 'cause you don't have family or friends that can watch and you have to pay for daycare. Those are absolute necessities. Everything else is extra fluff lifestyle. Spending this is still considered lifestyle spending as well but this is your baseline lifestyle. So when you're going through and figuring everything out these four things need to be taken care of and as you're going through the math and figure out okay. I'm not bringing in enough to cover the us basic four things. you're living to lavishly. You have played into the game of catching up with the joneses. You're trying to find too many influencers and live like them and showcase to the world. What all the amount of debt that you're bringing on is essentially what you're showcasing. You're not living the good life you're actually living a really crappy life. So that's kind of the premise of the four walls. And it when. I didn't really know that term when i first started doing my own budgeting but i realize kay. I've got regular monthly expenses that i always have to pay out have to pay my mortgage. I always have to pay the insurance. I always have to put gas in my car. Food on the table and a couple of medications and and some clothes. Those are the things that always spend money on every single month. What's fantastic about that is because it is you have the ability to look back over the last twelve months and really identify what your lifestyle is just by those expenses alone. Yeah that's that's interesting and it's it's definitely a a i won't say it's that different but it's definitely different than like you said what a lot of folks are gonna find when they do that. Google search for when they do that duck go search right on the internet of. Hey how do. I do a budget you know. What are the first things. I i should consider and and using hierarchy of needs and for those who are familiar with it. This basically just a pyramid that that stacks from bottom to top the needs. Every person has basic needs like markos already talked about psychological needs and then tops off. Self-fulfilment needs achieving your full potential including creative activities. And things like that. But with the four walls i know. They're all critical right but is one more important than the other. Is that the all really really for lack of a better term foundational for your financial health. They all are foundational. But dave will argue. And i kinda back this little bit. Is that if you have a choice between spending money on your electric bill and spending money on food you buy food and you can work with the company to to keep your electricity on food. Would probably the be the highest priority. Next would be your housing so everything that's involved with your housing your mortgage your mortgage. Iran's your utilities and then transportation would be third because there are things that you can do if you're spending too much on transportation. There's things that you can do to to lower those expenses but we can get into that little bit and then obviously medical. Now it's it'd be a toss up then if you've got to take medications or you need food a well. Okay then yeah but but at the same time. If the majority americans being healthy and not needing a whole lot of medications food would be the top priority so food station and then the other necessities sure sure so that so that kind of helps me prioritize as far as you know if i do find myself in a situation like I don't know what i'm going to you know. I only have so much money this month. And i can't pay whatever this one bill. Is you know kind of helps me. Prioritize food housing transportation medical. You know and then if it's more detailed it's down to the really really fine details of a few dollars here versus a few dollars here then. I think that's something you really just sit down like. If it's if it's you by yourself you just make the best decision right an absolutely. If it's you with your family you know you sit down with your spouse and or with your partner and you you talk about it like what do we want to do this month to make ends meet well and and i would say to that the amount of people who actually don't realize where their money's going is phenomenal so he say eighty percents living paycheck to paycheck. I would say one hundred percent of that. Eighty percent have no idea whether money's going and they don't realize that they probably have enough coming in to cover these four walls and then some that the problem comes is when they make all of the additional lifestyle choices and then they're like oh. I don't have enough money for food while it's because they just bought a thousand dollar iphone. So i mean like i know that's really rudimentary example. Because most people are buying their phones on the month to month plan that they put on that they tacked onto your bill which side note really crazy. I was trying to buy a new phone for my wife. No cellphone store will let me pay full price outright for the phone. They forced me to put it onto a monthly plan. Really i is crazy not i was like. I've got nine hundred dollars. That i'm gonna pay you right now and they don't want it. They want it on the monthly plan. So what's funny is so my family. We are an android family. Okay we've always been. We've never gotten into the iphones. You know my daughter. She's a teenager now. So she's kind of leading me toward the iphone but we've always been an android family and for the past few years. I have bought all of our phones directly from samsung. I don't know if you can do that with apple or not if it has to be carrier specific and you have to do over a month to month plan but if i go to samsung dot com. I can just buy that phone outright. I couldn't yeah. I basically i swipe my card more or less you know and you type in my numbers. He and then a couple of days i get new phone on my on my doorstep and so have to remember that for my wife because she's a samsung guy. I'm an iphone. Yeah for sure and so we when we started doing that. We've been with our with our carrier for. I don't know five six seven years now and so we're not really planning on leaving and going to another carrier. But i do get the unlocked phones just in case i need to right and so and so it is really nice to just be able to swipe their credit card and be like. Hey here you go. Here's all the money up front. I don't have to worry about that That money coming out every month right so off that sidetrack for second sorry about that it was just. It was really crazy when i was trying to do that. I couldn't believe that is crazy for phone. So why things that. When when i sit down with somebody and i'm going through this. Is that a lot of people. Don't realize all of the essentially the line items within each of these categories so under housing. There's a couple of lines you've got your mortgage or your rent which includes particularly if you have a mortgage. It also

"Want to start the hand number. One that i played about a month ago and i played it on a poker coaching. Dot com playing explained livestream as well so Brad's hand starts with us at a five hundred table playing five ten. No limit cash on ignition. Brad is under the gun or excuse me. We're finding five handed. So brad is in the middle position with eight seven of spades opens twenty five dollars the player in the cutoff. Who looks like a rag. Three about two seventy dollars. Everybody else folds caught off and brad are. I guess we should finish up. Ashen brad bets to two hundred thirty dollars. Oath brad and the cutoff started about a hundred and forty five big blinds effective on rag but his three about sizing was team very very small even versus a hundred big stack versus two and a half x. Open making it. Seventy is definitely smaller than what i would expect. I'd expect closer to ninety or maybe even one hundred out a huge deal. I think the more interesting. Our pre flop is your decision to four but actually don't actually think that villains throughout sizing somewhat reasonable at this depth and because they're in position. I don't think they necessarily need to go super big because they can. They can go smaller here. Then they can defend very appropriately versus four bat swallow retaining position throughout the rest of the hand. And if i call very often facing the small three bet sizing then basically. I'm gonna be out of position in a deep sack pot throughout the rest of the hand which is going to be pretty annoying to navigate so actually think villains three about sizing here is it's reasonable. I don't think it's it's definitely not a not worth nitpicking over the sizing for sure. Yeah in seventy eight. Suited is gonna be commits close to the bottom of my. Mp opening range. It's a handed. I mean again. I'm probably defending almost everything except for some alike off suit. Ace jack off type hands. I think those hands are going to get folded but pretty much fitting everything versus small three about sizing and need to find some hands to forget with for board coverage and then also bottom of range type for hands that could flop pretty well can give me some equity post flop and like i said can cover some some of the lower middling type boards that we would like to have some good hands on those boards to so because of all of that. I decided to go ahead and four about this hand if it does five bet which i don't know that they're gonna five bet really anything here even aces and kings. I think those hands might just flat but if they do five bed it's obviously pretty easy to fold the seven hundred and eight.

"We'll just jump right into it then a and that actually. This had got reviewed poker power on wednesday and there are a lot of Differing opinions. On what i should what people thought i should be doing So go flip it back to you and see what what you have to say. Hand starts with me opening the cutoff at five. Ted nolan that with pocket. Jacks the button only have two hands on him but appears to be fish. Flat the button and the big blinds. Who i'm guessing as a also don't have too many hands on him also calls we go to a nine four deuce two-tone flop the big blind checks off again. I pocket i check. I'm going to be checking range. Multi way Especially on a board. Like this. I think and then the fish on the button. That's forty dollars in to seventy to fifty the reagan the big blind raises to one hundred and ten dollars and i was pretty lost what to do facing the check. Raise with an repair multi. Yes so when we were looking at this hand before in the run through. I think that in game you were not clear as to whether or not the button was a fish because they do have mostly full stack. My intuition told me kinda straight away before you even described anything about the hand that the button was a fish because they had nine eighty in their stack. The blinds go through. That would be ninety nine hundred five. I got the feeling that they were fish. But then when they bet forty into seventy two on the flop. I think that kind of confirms that there a weaker player in the pool. Because i don't think that's sizing should like be thing. Whatever it is that they. I don't even know. What percentage that is that they chose to bet they're a little bit more than fifty percent so yeah like basically the button who is a fish. That's about sixty percent and the big line to looks to be a rag and intuitively. I would imagine they are oreg check raises less than three x here here than the actions back on us with our jackson. Nine four two hearts so my first inclination here is to bet three bet or not bad three bed. Check three bet. And that's for a few reasons number one. The buttons forty dollar bet because that designates them a fish. I have to imagine that the big blind wants to raise choose a larger sizing with their sets and their value. So that kind of small check raise from forty to one. Ten makes me believe that like they could be doing this fairly wide. They don't necessarily just have to have like sets or even like a street as five of heart type hands. They could be doing this with like top pair just as protection. They'd be doing this with just whatever they could check raised with like jackson diamonds. Trying to run a multi street bluff. I guess again objective diamonds. We got jack of diamonds. But you see my point right like basically some sort of back doors type type hand and the reason that i want to put more money in the pot now Kind of smallish around two thirty five ish to thirty by my go-to would be like to thirty four. But i can't tell you why secret proprietary information is to thirty four but because i think the check razor doesn't necessarily have sets here all the time like they've got an expanded wider range than that we can check raise against them just fine. I don't wanna flat because we flat that gives the button a great opportunity to call and realize equity getting just an amazing price. I think at that point if we flat. There's like three thirty in the pot. They've got the call seventy two win three thirty so they're getting like close to five to one and our hand does need some kind of

You look very comfortable for those of you. Can't see her. she's an a very nice chair so you are a pretty public person. A lot of your life is documented. And i wanna start with. What is something we cannot go about you. What's a fun fact about you. Oh goodness a fun fact about me. Maybe you can google this. Maybe you can't i play. I can play the electric bass. Wow i started in the seventh grade. And i was in a jazzman for a little while. It's so funny. My side of the family is more on the creative arts side. like beater. drama. Move the whole thing. So i'm kind of well-versed in that side of life. So let's start there. Tell us about how you grew up. What was your childhood like. Yes so. I grew up in markham ontario canada and very proud of it. I love the fact that. I'm like one of those rare dual citizens that gets to be both canadian and american. And we're proudly. But i grew up in markham in a big jamaican family and markham itself is like this giant cultural melting pots islands always very well versed in involved. In many different cultures side. Grew up like jamaican food having weekend parties with my big family like all i know but then on the flip side of things with like watch bollywood with my friends. Bollywood movies in my friends and like learn. Bollywood dances and so i just grew up learning and knowing many different things which i think plays into the way that i cook a lot as well. I lived in canada until i was fourteen thirteen fourteen and then moved to north carolina to start high
"Comes from a one three game. Five hundred effective time. Rake first of all i note. It's a pretty good deal. Hefei offend a lot of poker rooms. I've seen a lot of one two and three games most of them. You not five hundred effective in most of them don't have a time rate so i don't know where this hand took place but we don't let them make is either but hopefully at harvard. Imagine it's much worse than seven dollars. Yeah hopper although the one the one thing about time rick at one three. Is that the one. Three games are kind of slow because a lot of people don't play They can take forever so like time raking and more multi way. Pots take longer So here's five hundred dollars with the small blind two hundred fifty dollars effective with the off. The cutoff is a fun player. Who is extremely loose. Passive and the small blind is tighter older woman. Who's a regular in the row volts to the cutoff who limps and we're on the button with queen ten environments reason not to make it rather large. Yeah yeah. I think we want to be. I don't know it's a. It's a really strong hand. Cutoffs is really wide will probably still dominate a lot of continuing range Yeah i like race. He remains at twenty bucks. I think that's solid I need depending on your image. You can like it can be interesting to really choose the pot in these types of arts and raise like twenty five to thirty or something but i think twenty definitely accomplishes our goal here which is to put more money than you typically would in the pot based on the situation
The State of Vaccinations in the U.S.
"Alison. Over the weekend rhode island became the eighth state to reach a goal set by president biden to get seventy percent of adults vaccinated with at least one shot by july. Fourth is the rest of the country on track lost so far. Many of the smaller northeastern states have reached this goal. I including maine massachusetts vermont and new jersey nationwide about sixty one percent of adults have received their first dose and very close to half are now fully vaccinated so this is all good news but in states. Vaccinations remain much lower including alabama mississippi. Arkansas utah it's kind of unclear. I mean nationwide. The number of daily. Vaccinations has declined over the last month. Part of this. Is it a lot of people already been vaccinated. Now we're at about one point. Seven million shots a day so we have a ways to go as a country. General vivek murthy has pointed to survey data showing that more people would be motivated to roll up their sleeves if their employers gave time off to get the shot and recover from it so employers not only have an opportunity to increase fascination rates. It turns out that they can also help the close. The equity gallon. Vaccinations and you know. In recent weeks mega retailers including target and walmart have announced compensation and incentives for hourly employees who get vaccinated some employees have been offered cash bonuses. Yeah in house and can we take a second to talk about what is going on in my home state of ohio right now. I saw my parents this weekend and they were telling me what they were going to do. When they won the vaccine million. Yes oh hi. Oh has gotten a ton of attention for this lottery program so for the next five weeks beginning. This week there will be a one million dollar lottery. Draw for people who get their first dose of the pfizer or moderna vaccine or the one dose of j. and j. other states have jumped on this lottery bandwagon oregon kentucky maryland in new york ruled out something called the vaccine scratch initiative with that four million dollar possible when so ohio was really touting. Some pretty impressive numbers in terms of a boost in vaccinations. And i think it's surprising. Just how well lotteries may work. I talked to a behavioral economist about this katie milkman at the university of pennsylvania and your parents might appreciate this mattie the hijack pot is really alluring and feels like a game and because we overweight small probability that we might win and wonderful coke. They're really highly motivating. There's lots of research showing that lotteries can be used to change all sorts of other health
Race and Research: America Today
"This is a place it's not necessarily just a melting pot but also a nation with so many people from so many different parts of the world. I think it's a little bit of melting pot and a little bit of some might say A mixing bowl or a sellable. Could you give us a top level. Sort of view of the change in america because of the mixing bowl melting pot really from the founding fathers days of the seventeen hundreds. We've seen that happen and it's happened in waves. What are some of those that will carry us to where we are today. Over the course of the two hundred plus years of a us history. There have been three major waves of immigration. There was a first wave of immigration. That happened in the mid nineteenth century largely irish and largely german and that brought about ten million people to the united states at the time. When you take a look at the second wave which happened in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries largely southern european as an italian and portuguese. And you think about the eastern european components to this as well meaning people from places like poland. You see a different a group of people coming and that too was a wave of maybe about fourteen million people. At the time in fact nine hundred ninety. The us share the population that was born in another country reached about fourteen almost fifteen percent. The third big wave started in nineteen sixty five when the us changed its immigration laws and changed the way which people could enter the country from nineteen sixty five a day. We've had fifty nine million more than fifty nine million people arrive in the country. And if you think about that that's a lot of people compare it to the size of the previous waves of immigration and the source countries for this new wave of immigration are largely in latin america as in mexico but also in places like for example asia so china and india have been other big sources of migrants today. The single largest source country is china second largest as india and the third largest is mexico for new arrivals but this is always changing in view following the news. Today he can see that the there's a lot of attention paid to the us. Mexico southern border because of the rising number of immigrants who are presenting themselves seeking asylum and many from are from central america.

"Same people for example that have been doing some good work. Some commendable work around shrinking the size in reach of of the nypd or or voting against the city budget And in understanding that if if we are going to take steps forward we have to find places and points where we align and get that work done together and then continue to be in sort of respectful but intentional relationship to keep moving towards our goals. Right and that's like that's the the approach that you take with some folks and then some of it is just like engaging in building conversation with folks. I remember on the trail talking about sex worker ending cash bail and just finding simple common ground. Getting to a place where you are able to have a thirty. You know a two minute conversation. This time that sets it up so that you can have a five minute conversation the next time. And you've really got people thinking in to to what you're talking about and remember being out in bayside giving somebody might He walked down the block from the eligible. Our station the that we were nearby and then came and walk back and ask some huge like we agree on things and we start talking. So i think i wanna start here like i think there are things that we do agree. I think we agree that we both want the safest unhealthiest communities possible period of. Yeah and then him being like asking question well no matter where you lynn. Do you think things are working right now. Now right all right well. We agree on three things at this morning. And just from there being able to create a space where you can have a conversation. that make sense to think about those things and that is. That's a good organizing interaction. I'll have today but somebody else is gonna hit him tomorrow and then hopefully somebody else going to him the day after that. We're gonna make some movement in you mentioned that even if people don't agree with you there's always some common ground what would you say is the common ground that you saw the most you know. I think it's the baseline saying and like people affirming that like what they want is just to be safe and healthy right And it looks different for different people because also obviously you. And i know this. They are communities who have very little interaction with police for example and therefore don't really have any negative associations with police and so how does that change your vision of safety and unpack that with its own ecosystem right like connect that with all of the the media that you consume and what are the narratives that we typically tell about policing and incarceration and then you have communities that know all too. Well what over policing over molestation were policing in criminalization period. Bring right and so when you talk to them about health and safety it looks different But also to connect it back to sort of organizing It's also about taking advantage of moments to and even the hard ones even the tough ones like the pen. This pandemic that we're in it is An organizing moment where we take the thing that we already have in common And then something else happens to be captured a bubble bursting moment and so like for me this whole period as hard as it's been has been an opportunity in a sense because now no matter who i ask what what is public is safety mean to you. What he you know. What are you need right now to feel say. Nobody says. Police imprisons prisons anymore. Nobody they say access to healthcare. They say to keep their job in stay in their home. you know. And that's like yes. That is safety and we can't let that organizing either. Yeah so i. I always find that. There's a lot that people can learn from the movement work. That's been happening in queens. Not just in other. Bur what i can learn in manhattan or what people can learn in brooklyn but what can people learn who are looking to build movements in other parts of this country from what has been going on in queens. You get in where you fit in right like it's this idea that Every no matter what the on ramp or where the what steps you take. It is a worthwhile step. I think the way that we view our organizing here in queens we take that step back and look at like the collective Bill end that you can do a lot with a little when you are just talking to people and use a little bit of imagination right like i was not somebody that really engaged in an electoral organizing. I kind of just got thrown into it. When i decided to run for a and then found myself continuing that work but through that campaign. Learning that like these. We do these campaigns in we're organizing for example to get somebody into office like dole purpose there you also should be using that as a vehicle to organize your people to create political will to hold them accountable office but also to be able to support the vision that you that you voted them in for rain So taking every opportunity think adding bob is a great example with a group that started as bangadesh's for coban in our race using that and skill building right like are also reach out. Like if you're getting involved in electoral organizing for example as sort of your movement strategy There are lots of tools to be learned. You should be working with campaigns that are going to invest in in teaching us things that are going to invest in your leadership that are gonna invest in you being able to take something to yourself or take something and show your neighbor or show your block and so to have a group like bangaladeshi is for come come on in support and work so hard and then become bangladeshi americans for political progress and run their own slate of hybrid of candidates hyper hyper local level and talk to their neighbors right. About running for hyper local office every little thing can be a catalyst point and so anything. You can contribute is valuable and worthwhile and it just builds and grows on its own. Yeah you know one of my favorite things. 'cause i feel like i really gossip no queens better in door knocking for your campaign and going to different parts of queens And what i really like about working in a place that is that diverse is that you have to sort of really step out of your comfort zone. And you've got to find a different way to frame this thing you use when you're used to only talking people who think like you that i find that that's lazy kind of organizing when you have to think of like how can i say this thing in a way that resonates with these people with a completely different life experience than me like you really start to see and feel the humanity and others and i you know. I really hope that folks from around the country. See the the The benefit to organizing with people who think differently than you What is your hope for the future of queens of a where things are going in your district and outside I mean on a larger scale. May my hope is just the things that i have been talking about for as long as i can remember of leg. This beautiful Abolition vision where we are coming together and supporting each other in finding safety in community. Right hiding safety amongst community. My hope is to continue growing the movement the way that we have. My hope is to continue to be just as unapologetic but even bolder and bolder in our demands. My hope is that we continue to build a bench Because when i look at the the wins that we've had on every level of government like we. Yes we sort of when we think about. It's kind of started with no i. D c folks Like jessica and got the leonine and all those folks and.

"I'm joined now by tiffany coban a former public defender who is running to represent new york city council district. Twenty two which happens to be in queens. She also ran a very impressive race for queens district. Attorney in two thousand. Nineteen and was nearly victorious. Tiffany has plans to make this amazing borough even better for her neighbors. And i can't wait to hear more about her plans. Welcome thanks for having me. Thanks for being here So i really excited to get to talk to you because you sort of have a holistic view of queens inexperience of queens from all over the place you were. You were born in richmond hill. You went to school in woodside. You now live in a story. Ah for someone who's never visited. How would you describe the borough. And how would you describe the experience of multicultural place like this. There is nowhere else on earth like obviously. I'm biased. Because i'm i'm born and raised queens. You know when you talked about being just the most ethnically diverse place i. I did grow up in return hill and on my block. Literally they are was the house that we lived in and on it. You know to to our left. We had A trinidadian family that next to A korean family next to a dominican family and then if you went down the block in the other direction it was a polish family. You know next to another puerto rican next to a Several houses You know that were part of the sikh community and so like literally are blocked was just super super super diverse and then I actually. I didn't go to school inside. I spent like my entire childhood in woodside a story because my grandmother she lived in the the woodside houses and she was a foster parent. So i have. She'd adopted a couple of kids. And i have on uncle. That are my age But you know. Spent spent weekends summers School holidays and things like that over there but also i went to high school in fresh meadows. You know when to end woodhaven and have just sort of been hopping all around the borough. Yeah and what you describe in richmond. Hill isn't unique to richmond hill. Any either so like that diversity that you describe that. That's something that you see all over the borough of where you go. Yeah and then you get all of the. The good smells like dora door. You know there's a lot of really important movement. Mark happening at queens. Afc was elected. In june of twenty eighteen insurgents. Jessica ramos and catalina cruz also wine in september of two thousand eighteen. You came real damn close to winning the district attorney race and twenty nineteen what what makes queens such a fertile ground for insurgents. You know i think So many things but the biggest thing being community you still see very very tight knit. Invested communities folks know each other. They talk to each other. They build together end. You know i think just some of it is just. It feels like magic. Like i'm trying to answer a question and now that i'm thinking about like also i don't know we're just. This is just how we do in queens. But i also think that when you bring together all of these folks and all of these experiences It the result. Are these big butte beautiful. Bold transformative visions. Because you're dealing with people who on an everyday basis are interacting with systems that weren't made to to serve them right and so at its identity politics wanna one if we switch you know. Put our her. Like will will learning capper or nerd glasses on. But i think about identity politics i think what barbara smith and the behavior collected In this idea of us bringing our whole selves to our politics Who we are how we exist. Who we pray to you. Know what all of those things how they interact with the systems with governments. that were made to serve. You know whiter wealthier folks And i think that when you start talking to us talking to each other what you get are the pinpointing of problems in a very different way and then the the idea of solutions that are beautiful and bold but also very inviting and there things that you can get very excited to rally around and that brings up a great point you know when you look at queens and you see the ethnic diversity people might have this assumption data. A lot of the cultures are conservative or traditional. Then you see folks like yourself running. I'm big very bold very progressive ideas that team that resonate with all those same cultures for the same reasons. Why do you think that is. It's interesting because it gets weaponized against us all the time. And i i like on a very basic level. Obviously we are not a monolith. We don't and that's actually something that comes up a lot in conversations about the quote unquote latino vote bright. But it's just a simple the simple active that common ground and it's like we may use different language around things. We may describe it differently but when you break down want we all want healthy safe communities while housing healthcare like access to food And those aren't big bold radical contentious. Thanks things that we can can get together and rally behind and and obviously this is offering a vision. That's different from the system that's led so many people down. What what is the thing that they that you think. All these communities in common with one another in terms of how they interact with these systems. They weren't made for us no matter what the community is. I think communities also then realize that we are in our own ways experiencing lots of similar things. We were more powerful together in and building. Broad beautiful coalitions think that's also contributed to the moment where end to the movie. You're seeing here particularly in queens people saying that like we love who we are. We love who you are and we all deserve the same things. We all serve the same level of of dignity and were experiencing a lot of the same things And so when you ran in twenty nineteen. It was a borough wide right now. You're running city council in a story. Ah or a majority of the district is in story..

Welcome to the podcast. Thank you thank you. thanks for having me. It's a pleasure to be here with you. I'm so excited to finally get a chance to chat with you. Because i've been watching all the amazing organizing that y'all have been doing and and i'm so happy for this most recent win that you guys. You guys scored in expanding the permits for street vendors. It's so important in this moment. Especially y'all organiz in all five boroughs to date. Were talking about queens queens. Is my favorite bro. is it yours churn. it is is my favorite borough. I lived in queens for three years and it was like the best time of my life can way to go back to queen's when things get better. Yeah we've been priced out of a story. Yeah that's too bad. What what makes queen so unique. Well queens as you mentioned earlier. It is the most diverse piece of earth on this planet. And it's it is true it is so diverse at reflects all new york city. It reflects hundreds of countries on hundreds of cultures everywhere. You go in queens. You see how how does treats are so alive. Abol how the vendors across queens add the flavor to the sidewalk add like just make the sidewalks in the street so fall and adjust that versity the activity the parks. Everything about grease is so beautiful and everything about queens so Sodia get the greek culture field that you ought squared some of those fancy nights lovely restaurants than you go to the flogging trucks where you get the real greeks of laki that began. Just get from greece then you hop into little egypt and then you get the whole car. You get the cafes. That serving the egyptian foods and egyptian cuisine then go to. Jackson heights all my god got hundred friend accusations and like i dunno five blocks radius super super. Inspiring walking in queens. See everything you need. Everything down because yeah i mean that's what i love about it too. 'cause i got to really know queens and love queens through my organizing to like political campaigning and especially going jackson heights because as you mentioned there's there's so many cultures there you got nepalese. You got pakistani. You got People from bangladesh. You've got colombian peruvian. Oh mike like you got so much food there and everyone like it's it's sort of like you have this idea of a melting pot and it feels like this is where it's actually happening and it's really quite something to see how you know. I'm assuming that a lot of your street vendors. Do that work in queens. How do they unassuming assuming all your street. Vendors are from different places. How do they sort of work together. And and and in any way do they mel. They're different cultures or share their cultural experiences. In how does that make organizing better. Yeah that's one of the video. Unique features about the project is like how how communities alike so diverse and how we have members and leaders from every single community in new york city. And how all these people come together in one room back in the days before covid we used to meet every month Within our membership anything between seventy two hundred members media and you see how all goes people are on the same page. The have the shared goals. A lot of our members on from queens. A lot of our members hundreds of vendors live and warren run their business in queens which is super awesome. that's why we could get it even basis and some neighborhoods in some operas like we have a very strong business gerona around on plaza roosevelt avenue all these vendors like i remember last time we had a meeting there. We have more than sixty people grownup plaza coming together talking about community agreements talking about how they want to build a strong community that supports each other. Everyone can support one. Another to thrive and go to grown up laws. it's super awesome plaza as it's very picturesque with The the the elevator trade in the background and in all the street vendors all the food that you could get at the same time like you'll organize and then like go somewhere to eat. Is that something that y'all do when you're organizing a place like queens that you like you do your action you get together and then you make sure that you go eat after his at any sort of is at a ritual that y'all have any chance it's a ritual we have the we get the food and the action itself so every single time we have an action of protest. The press conference the rally. Whatever it is named we have to get our members to prepare food for everyone else comic and yes like it gets tricky. Should we eat hers. Should we brought keep it together people. Let's do the ward leads organiz. Let's talk to the press. let award out and bet. Let's sit down and eat and their food has to be diverse. A game like we get we get the troodos the trump does we get tacos. We get a halal food We even get like some ozawa's from our like bengali members who those also has an debris yanni's so we have to just provide everything we can aren't members and like that's all over the place that sounds like the best kind of organization whether it's at the end of it organizing. Yeah right you know. Obviously when there's diversity there's also friction sometimes because people have different ideas of how you should go about things Does that diversity ever present a problem. In the way that y'all organiz shawn ching because giving like how diverse group is like every path that on challenges but again we come over to these shows as we organized because we come not work on everything at the same five honestly within vending system. That are a million things that need to be fixed. It is not just one prop are many many problems. Many things we had working on what we can all work on everything at the same time but we really worked towards wada's priority for most members. What is really pressing and one of the things that have been so bracing for so long the lack of permits the licenses. That's how we shaped our campaign in twenty fourteen asking the city to lift the capsule because despite the fact that there are many issues of vendors of dealing with the lack of permit is the biggest one firm it means that a vendor is a criminal dad. The nypd used to treat vendors. Ask criminals be used to arrest them. Used to give them a thousand thousand dollars tickets and has been really really devastating system and everyone was on the same page despite the fact we want five for more openness treats. We wanna find for easier regulations. We five for many many other things but the top priority was lifting the cap on permits making sure that the people stop dealing with the brawl market to rent.

Cool fine sure matthias. Bigger in the big blind as two point two million so not doing his well. Just thirtyish blinds calls with queen jack of spades in the big binder. I'm cool with that. Yeah it seems like. He's got too many chips to shove and not enough chips to raise for like because he has a good hand right. Yeah and this is play super well in position against a raise especially against the super wideness of this race. It seems great yeah pots. Three hundred and sixty five k. The flop is six of diamonds. Ten of clubs. Four of spades pretty mandatory. Continue for beds cow. Ski area goes pretty small. Pretty standard stuff. You're eighty-seven k into three sixty five all right. So is this just an auto float for bigger with to back doors. Two overs and yeah. I think absolutely competent opponent. Is there an argument for raising. Oh that's a cool question. If we feel like bazakov's he doesn't have a lot of ups on the turn. I'm a little bit more interested in raising right now. Yeah but if he's gonna check fold fairmount once we've called once which.

Were under vietnamese rule. Pol pot was back in the jungle yet. He refused to admit defeat. Even if it meant a long slow and unsuccessful struggle with a small guerrilla force. China step in and throw a bone to its longtime ally in the form of a punitive expedition against vietnam on february seventeenth. Nineteen seventy nine eighty. Five thousand soldiers stormed into north vietnam and laid waste whatever military and economic infrastructure. They came across by the time. They withdrew a month later. Vietnam's already weak economy was crippled but that was a secondary goal their primary objective was to force vietnamese to send troops to reinforce the north and give pol pot some breathing room on the cambodian border. The vietnamese didn't take the bait however instead they launched a new offensive against pol pot's jungle bases pol pot had just hours of warning. He and his cronies barely escaped with their lives but escaped. They did in time to watch the vietnamese lewd cambodia cities and even dismantle its factories sending all the booty back to vietnam. The vietnamese set up a provisional government in january much like under the khmer rouge any new official had to go through lengthy indoctrination sessions. Those who didn't cooperate were imprisoned. The end result was that many cambodian peasants just gave up and fled the country. The refugees into thailand grew from one hundred and fifty thousand that october to over five hundred thousand in december and pol pot and sihanouk seeing an opportunity and following the advice of their chinese allies grudgingly formed an alliance by december of nineteen eighty-one. The communist party of capuccio was no more becoming the first and only communist party to willingly terminate its own existence in its place was a new united front one. That did its best to separate itself from the past atrocities of the c. p. k. And not just in name. There was some real reform. Dissidents were now reeducated rather than killed followers were allowed to have individual possessions. Captured soldiers were spared and given the choice to join pol. Pot's guerrillas or go home and sihanouk was made head of state but for all the change. The alliance's numbers remained minimal. And when the vietnamese finally launched an offensive to address their jungle dissidents they were resoundingly crushed. In december of nineteen eighty-four pol pot was forced to flee to thailand and watch as the world changed.

Smoke hung heavy in the sky. as pol. pot's soldiers entered panam pen on april seventeenth. Nineteen seventy five. The city breathed a sigh of relief. The five year civil war that had killed five hundred. Thousand cambodians was finally over the winning side. Was the communist party of campo chia or the cpi k. More popularly known as the kamerhe rouge in honor of the red scarves they wore. But the kamerhe rouge soldiers didn't all look like winners. Many were peasants from cambodia's mountainous regions and had never seen a city before. Modern life confused them. They were filthy from fighting and didn't understand urban habits. They drank out of toilet bowls thinking they were wells. They were suspicious of food or drink in bottles or cans yet. Willingly drank motor oil and toothpaste thinking they were food. But the real trouble on the winning side lay not with its countryside soldiers but with its leader pol pot pol pot had studied the works of mao and stalin and he was convinced that for a revolution to be truly effective. All resistance must be smoked out and crushed. The executions began almost immediately. The first to die was the ousted regime's prime minister several other high ranking republican figures. Soon joined him. Pol pot's goal was to establish perhaps the most radically communist government. The world had ever seen one. That didn't just uplift the peasantry but forced everyone in the country to become a peasant to that end the very afternoon that his soldiers entered the city pol pot ordered penh emptied of inhabitants. All two million of them. The pretense was that the americans who had been mercilessly bombing cambodia. Since the conclusion of the vietnam war we're going to launch a raid on the capital. But it was ally in reality. Pol pot worried. That cambodia's cities were a hotbed of anti-communist thought. He also correctly figured that it would be much more difficult for western spies to operate without anyone in the capital. Cambodia's cia chief would later admit that his entire intelligence apparatus was neutralized when pol pot evacuated ben. But that didn't mean the operation was in all around success. The exodus was a fiasco from the start. In a pattern that would be repeated. Throughout pol pot's entire rule. He acted with almost no planning. There was nowhere for the evacuees to stay during their march through the countryside. No food no transportation and no medical aid. April is cambodia's hottest month and many civilians suffered from heat exhaustion. Those who could no longer keep walking were killed. They were forced to march hundreds of miles to new farming cooperatives soldiers and see. Pk officials chose who went where the new peasants had no say in the matter. The exodus also doubled as a highly effective way to screen nearly a quarter of cambodia's population for former government officials and thus people pol pot viewed as potential threats at checkpoints. Along the road soldiers would ask all government officials to come forward. The ruse was that they were being asked to help. The new government to rebuild. Panam pen in reality. They were dragged off into the jungle to be killed in the end. Upward of twenty thousand people died in the evacuation and pol. Pot was just getting started. Once the capital was emptied pol pot's pesification could begin. His goal was to make cambodia completely self sufficient by building an economy on the backs of rice farms. The plan was to mechanize farming within ten years and then to industrialize within twenty years. It wasn't a terrible plan. Pot wanted to construct a vast network of irrigation canals to increase rice yields and many independent western observers claimed that it was a praiseworthy initiative but what they might not have approved of were the methods.

"Forbidden land was redistributed so that all inhabitants in each region had the exact same amount poorer peasants. Were obviously thrilled. Wealthy peasants not so much but the real problem is began when people resisted pots new mandates in the liberated zones in one stark example after a village had killed three. Ck officials soldiers rounded up three ringleaders and their entire families and killed them all even children and infants. These moves were intended to snuff out the individual in pol. Pot's perfect cambodia. Everyone was a peasant working together with absolutely no thought of the self or ideas of self-determination. All that was left for pol pot to achieve his utopian dream was to take panom penn but that was easier said than done especially after the nineteen seventy three paris peace accords peace accords officially ended us involvement in vietnam which made pol pot nervous aid from china and vietnam could very well dry up. If cambodia was no longer valuable to them the to larger countries were already pressuring him to sign a peace. Deal with lon nol. Such a request was impossible. Both sides were utterly unwilling to make peace in response. The us redoubled their bombing efforts in cambodia which was not off limits according to the treaty. These bombs sport. Lon nol's regime another three years. They also provided the perfect excuse for pol pot to enact his own show of force claiming they might be struck by aaron bombs pol pot uprooted entire villages and marched them to different commune's in the liberated zone. No one was allowed to bring any of their possessions. There wouldn't be room for them anyway. As these commune's often had thirty or forty families living together they were crowded. Dirty places rife with misery and disease pol. Pot was beginning to reveal his true self the self he had kept hidden from the world for almost fifty years. He was a man who believed anything that got in the way of his perfect communist. Cambodia had to be eliminated. Whatever the bloody cost in fact things would soon get much worse. In march of nineteen seventy four yuedong. One of the old imperial capitals fell to see. Pk troops. They split the population into two groups soldiers and officials and everyone else. The first group was marched into the jungle and murdered. The government lost moorland throughout the year. Until by december only panam penn remained. It was completely cut off from the rest of the country and barely surviving. Only thanks to american food drops then on april seventeenth nineteen seventy five c. Pk forces entered the capitol and the war drew to a close. All part was finally the leader of a unified cambodia and it only cost the lives of half a million of his countrymen to do it nonetheless. There was a sense of relief throughout the capital. The war was finally over now. Things could go back to normal and perhaps as the. Ck promised their lives would even get better. They couldn't have been more. The horrors had.

"Place against the repressive government to that end the c. p. Pk was surprisingly successful. After an inauspicious start. They managed to steal hundreds of rifles from the government and by early march. More than ten thousand disaffected peasants had flocked to the pk. The cpi k. Was most successful in the northeast region. Where by the fall of nineteen sixty eight they controlled many of the region's commune's and villages by the end of nineteen sixty eight. There were an estimated. Fifteen hundred communist insurgents backed by several times more armed peasants. But these successes didn't necessarily mean pots revolution was ready to take over the country. Most of see. Pk's soldiers were poor soldiers if they were trained at all. It was usually mcp k. Ideology and concepts like the proletarian consciousness not military strategy or using their weapons. Pol pot would certainly not be deterred now when things were finally starting to go his way and revolution was actually happening. Fortunately for the cpi k. Sihanouk made a conveniently timed. Ill advised decision. He undermined cambodia's relationship with china. By banning. the teachings of now as well as the mouth pins and paraphernalia that had become popular with students. Now out of china's favor he had no choice but to seek support from the united states and he couldn't protest when the us began to secretly bomb the cambodian side of the vietnamese border in an effort to stop supplies from getting to the north vietnamese. This choice along with other repressive policies sent droves of recruits to the cpi k. Finally pol pot had the numbers he needed to wage of full fledged war against the government. But there was just one problem after all it's raids of military bases. The cpi k still didn't have enough weapons to arm. Its people pol pot and sihanouk were locked. In a stalemate through the end of the nineteen sixties. each army had enough firepower to repel assaults. But not enough to counterattack but pol pot was once again about to receive some aid from sihanouk himself on march. Eighth nine thousand. Nine hundred. seventy villagers along cambodia's eastern border began to protest against the viet cong presence in their villages. Sihanouk like the idea. So he ordered lon nol his right hand man to create some spontaneous protests in the capital his misguided aim was to convince the vietnamese to withdraw their troops from cambodia but his plan backfired spectacularly the protests turned to riots in by the end of the day both the south and north vietnamese embassies were reduced to ashes falling this debacle members of the national assembly brought forth a resolution to remove sihanouk from power. And install lon nol in his place. The resolution became official on march eighteenth. Nineteen thousand nine hundred seventy for all his failings. Sihanouk could be a shrewd politician and in a desperate act of self preservation. He flew to china where he announced that he was willing to work with the c k. To overthrow lon. Nol pol pot didn't trust sihanouk but the chinese urged him to consider the former king's offer they felt it would add an air of legitimacy to the cpa regime. So pol pot made a decision just as radical as sihanouk's offer. He accepted it suddenly. The resistance of the people was led by pol pot and cambodia's deposed king. It was an absolutely bizarre situation and one that would make it impossible for the panama penn government to claim that the communists were foreign puppets pol pot's fortunes changed almost overnight with sihanouk in charge of cambodia. It had been almost impossible to convince vietnam and china to aid the revolution. But against lon nol's right wing government which was quickly proving to be very pro american. It was a different story and vietnam. Support was exactly what the cpi k. needed while the cpi pk's forces were poorly trained and poorly armed. The vietnamese had been fighting since the nineteen forties. The vietnamese carried out most of the fighting in the nineteen seventies cambodian troops were only used intermittently on the front lines so villagers wouldn't confuse the communists for invaders. By this point. The only thing propping up lon. Nol's regime was american aid and a cadre of eleven thousand south vietnamese troops. Vietnamese forces began to withdraw in nineteen seventy two to prepare for a new offensive in south vietnam but pol pot in the cpi k. Already appeared poised to achieve exactly what they wanted. Unfortunately when pol pot left his command center to travel the liberated zones. He was furious with what he saw. People were still buying and trading items rich peasants still had bigger farms than poorer peasants. Something had to be done so following in the footsteps of mao pol pot decided it was time to begin this social revolution. They would no longer treat villagers with kid gloves. It was time to declare trade inequality gambling alcohol unsanctioned travel and even extramarital affairs.

Try it now at mail chimp dot com slash smart marketing now back to the story thirty seven year old pol pot began life in exile in nineteen sixty two living at a viet minh based on the cambodian side of the border. The conditions were miserable. But he was enmeshed with communist allies and among these like minded folk. He never stopped working toward the communist revolution. He spent much of the next two years travelling during his travels. He met north vietnamese leaders. Chee men and lay doin in hanoi. He also met with chinese communist party. Leaders deng xiaoping and pawn sin in his main goal was to drum up support and allies for cambodian revolution. Unfortunately no one was particularly interested at the time. Communist asia's focus was on the conflict in vietnam against their archrival. The united states pol pot was disappointed at the lack of support but part of him was also secretly thrilled after all if the vietnamese wouldn't help him his cambodian communists wouldn't fall under their thumb and he'd get to lead the charge himself in the fall of nineteen sixty four pol pot set up headquarters for his coming revolution in the jungle. Just next to the vietnamese border. It was called office one hundred and it was host to an assembly where the party began to hammer out yet. Another official policy. The party under pol pot would be slightly different from its previous generations. Pol pot had spent the last several years living in the jungles among the peasants and he developed a strong distaste for both city-dwellers and intellectuals even those within the lower castes in fact part assume that cambodia's few factory workers had most likely been infiltrated by foreigners and therefore couldn't be trusted taking this idea a step further. Pol pot actually banned factory workers from joining the communist party. This ran counter to traditional marxist teachings to mark's workers represented progress and peasants represented backwardness most marxist movements wanted to transform peasants into workers. Pol pot wanted to transform everyone into peasants to that end the new cambodian labor party was a party of action. Not thinking they didn't need to study marxist leninist material they would create their own form of communism born essentially out of their own ignorance as pol pot. Later put it. We applied ourselves and then put it into practice knowing whether it was right or wrong in essence they were making it up as they went along. It's hard to save this vivid if unconventional ideology contributed to a marked increase in recruitment. The party's numbers. Were up to two thousand by nineteen sixty five. It's more likely. However that these recruits were the result of sihanouk's increasingly repressive policies and some major changes in the country's workforce sihanouk had aggressively reformed cambodia's educational policies over the last few years but the economy couldn't keep up as a result. There were ten times more students than when pol pot was in school but the same number of jobs for educated workers. This meant that each opportunity for a white collar job received over one hundred applicants. Thousands of employed educated students were left to roam the streets grumbling about lack of opportunity. Furthermore thanks to a series of bad harvests and high interest rates on bank loans. Many peasants now found themselves landless with no other options. They traveled to the city's looking for jobs. Where of course there were none. These disillusion students and peasants were perfect recruits for the kampuchean labor. Party and pol pot ordered his communist cells to go into recruitment overdrive. Despite the fact that he didn't love having to include intellectuals in his party he knew this was an opportunity. he couldn't pass up but changing membership meant naturally the need for new plans so at the end of nineteen sixty six pol pot held another party congress where the communists made three important decisions. I they were now. The communist party of kampuchea the cpi k. Secondly they moved the party headquarters to the northeast to get away from the viet cong. They also agreed that at long last all party leaders should begin making preparations for an armed struggle. The uprising finally officially commenced on january. Eighteenth nineteen sixty eight. When rebel soldiers raided an army post at by damron the operation. Unfortunately for pol pot was a complete disaster. Still the first stone had been cast from here on out pot. And the party's main goals were to assault military outposts in order to steal weapons and to let disaffected peasants know that there was a revolution taking.

"He's buried in this this miserable a little grave. I saw a picture of it on the internet and it's this is good like a broken wooden fence around it and you know the kind of corrugated iron that you see on the roofs of so many house. South Africa, you see a lot of it in the squatter camps. It's got like a piece of bent iron over a little wooden structure and then underneath this is really just a heap of Earth which is surrounded by stones and nothing smart about it in front. There's a little altar with some incense sticks and then it's got grave of Pol Pot. No one's Too Faced it. You've gotta ask yourself how he got away. So it's got free and how his grave is not been covered in concrete like, you know, no one no one worships Stalin anymore. No one worships Hitler anymore. These people have been universally acknowledged as evil dead yet this dude. He's lying there in peace in the country that he ruined and you know, I think the K Maru sled a place in the United Nations, you know, I think it's latest turn of the century. That's a trillion at that boggles the mind. I just think that there was a lot of funny things going on with the Cold War and the us then started supporting the Khmer Rouge to take the Vietnamese out cuz there was a puppet government job. In compared yesterday was a whole lot of funny things going on and maybe that's why he he got away with it. I don't know, you know, it was very sad. Like you've already pointed out that kind of flew under the radar because there was so many bigger fish to fry in terms of international players. And Cambodia just wasn't important enough for people to pay attention. Yeah, and it just shows you not all people are equal. So it kind of in in some sick way. It proves that wage inequality is the way the state of man. Yeah. So history is not always fair and and the fact that a guy like this, you know died of natural causes and under house arrest. We're off you'd commit such atrocities. It's just it's just unbelievable boggles the mind and and of course that part of the world has never fully recovered but Cambodia has a rich in ancient history. There's obviously there's famous ruins of old watch that which comes from a much more ancient civilization that actually was part of the flag. They had the main temple in Angkor Wat as the symbol in the middle of their communist Democrat. People's Republic of kampuchea that had that that symbol on their flag. Apparently there are museums you can go to in Cambodia now where they have just walls with skulls almost like the raccoons and ROM or in in Paris, but many many more people that have died and and whose remains are now in these unbelievably huge mausolea. It's very lucrative country. And it's it's quite a place down into the South China Sea and it's got some of the the best freshwater fish in the world even today. So if you want to go and catch big freshwater fish you go to Cambodia, it's a nice area for fishing in it, but it's an interesting part of the world. I don't think though that it's completely out of the woods yet. There's still elements of the Khmer Rouge Alive and Well in that part of the world, there's still lots of fights between the Vietnamese the cambodians and many others. It's taking them literally 30 years or even more to recover if they have recovered from it. What a guy off. Um, not not one of our favorites but he fits into the same category as some of those Maniacs that we've covered before like Vlad the Impaler Stalin. Yes any of the others but you know, that doesn't seem.

"They even talk about Mal Pol Pot seems to be a second-rate dictator killer autocrat murderer despot tyrants, you know, he he's like got sick and running but this guy was a a maniac who was absolutely a maniac. I mean, it really does make some of these the Stalin's and Hitler's of the world wants to collect pennies. Did you have any personal life at all? I mean, were there any people close you are so you had two marriages his first marriage was to a lady that was linked to the royal family. So in the beginning, I mean yet he definitely was from the wealthier side of the world. And you have a child and I must be honest. I try to find out what happened to the child. You know, there's not much information on it. I looked at a picture of him though, and he seems like a pretty ordinary dude. He almost looks like a Cambodian version of Elon Musk. You know, he really doesn't look like a very dangerous person and this is a picture of him even in his old age before he died of what was a supposed heart attack. He looks like a jovial but he's smiling and laughing in this picture. He said on his deathbed virtually certainly in the last interview that anyone did with him that he had no regrets. He said everything I did I did for my country. Phenomenon now what what a strange world. You must living in your head. When you think you can get away with social engineering on the scale and really that's what he will go down in history full is trying the most audacious kind of social engineering that turn things backwards and try to eliminate all difference between people he tried to block people numbers machines robotics heartless. Absolutely. And and this is just one of the most evil things that could ever have been perpetrated Against Humanity. Do we know anything about the last years of his life where he was cuz you said he was in the jungles, you know up to kind of the nineteen-eighties, but where did he end up saying. Just close to the table border? So that's where you went deep into the jungle and it's been a lot of time then his Youth and that's we really got the love and you believe the way they lived you. See, that's the way that's all country must live. And so you're yep. Back then I think he was very well protected and he was a figurehead for the cameras for you know, right into the nineties already stepped down as their lead in nineteen eighty-five. He stayed in that area and he kept gorilla campaigns going on up until the nineties. Let's not long ago. So this movie The Killing Fields that already been put onto onto the circuit around the world and he was still doing Guerrilla campaigns in the Northern parts of Cambodia. I think in the end it fell apart and they had some sort of house arrest, but I think it was just a front you got away with it. And then you died, you know supposedly he was arrested by another senior Khmer Rouge figure and and they did sentence him to life imprisonment. But I mean he seems to have got a really easy cuz he did die of this heart failure as you say in nineteen ninety eight,.
