On History and Politics

Learned about Cambodian dictator Pol Pot from the documentary “Pol Pot – Tyrant & Dictator” and the 1984 movie release “The Killing Fields.” Pol Pot reigned from 1976-1979 supported by the military unit Khmer Rouge. The goal, an agricultural society inspired by the ideas of Mao Zedong aimed to ban all Western influence. Citizens were collectivized in villages, working for 12-15 hours a day. Poor nutrition lead to mass deaths due to diseases and exhaustion.

The Pol Pot regime executed people connected to the old regime and other intellectuals, approximately 1,5 and 2 million people were killed under these circumstances scientists claims. Numbers from the archives of Khmer Rouge´s secret police, Santebal, counts 600 000. Ten thousands of Khmer Rouge´s own were also executed on suspicion of untrustworthiness. Torture was a feature of the Pol Pot regime. Pol Pot died in 1998. (Source: snlsnl)

With these more dark sides of politics, I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday. I add stories like these to focus on learning and knowledge.

The Cup

Tom Schilling delighted my evening last night in the movie “A Coffee in Berlin,” entirely in black and white. Depicting the university drop out Niko Fischer on a journey wandering the Berlin streets, random encounters and the quest for a cup of coffee. I loved Tom Schilling in “Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter,” he also did a great job in “A Coffee in Berlin.”

Enclosed a peek into my book collection and a cup. Enjoyed reading ever since I opened a biography about Mozart in elementary school. Happy Saturday.

He sang it’s time the walls fell down

They say opposite attracts, my general sentiment of communism/socialism. Politically I stand far from both ideologies and still I spend many hours learning all about them. In the wait to see “Walesa. Man of Hope”, I took the time to watch a documentary (Polska Transformacja/The Polish Transition) about SolidarnoscWojciech Jaruzelski and the political transformation in Poland in the 1980s.

Particularly the idea of decommunization took an interest, the documentary talked about the challenges of decommunizing a population. And the element of a free democracy opening up for the return of communist political figures (who did not break any laws). The post title is taken from a song popular among the Solidarnosc trade union, Mury by Jacek Kaczmarski. While the physical wall was torn down in the late 1980s, the political wall needed more time to come down. It´s not just about tearing down walls, also finding the patience to work through the political issues. I found some images of socialist architecture from Poland and other countries.
