 Unless you are Indonesian, or a specialist on the topic, most people know
very little about Indonesia, and almost nothing about what happened in
1965–1966 in that archipelago nation. The truth of the violence remained
hidden for decades. The dictatorship established in its wake told the world
a lie, and survivors were imprisoned or too terrified to speak out. It is
only as a result of the efforts of heroic Indonesian activists and
dedicated scholars around the world that we can now tell the story.
Documents recently declassified in Washington, D.C., have been a huge help,
though some of what happened still remains shrouded in mystery. This story
of inexplicable, vaguely tribal violence—so easy for American readers to
digest—was entirely false. This was organized state violence with a clear
purpose. The main obstacles to a complete military takeover were eliminated
by a coordinated program of extermination—the intentional mass murder of
innocent civilians. The generals were able to take power after state terror
sufficiently weakened their political opponents, who had no weapons, only
public sympathy. They didn’t resist their own annihilation because they had
no idea what was coming.   In total, it is estimated that between five
hundred thousand and one million people were slaughtered, and one million
more were herded into concentration camps. Millions more people were
indirect victims of the massacres, but no one came around to inquire how
many loved ones they had lost.   The prime responsibility for the massacres
and concentration camps lies with the Indonesian military. We still do not
know if the method employed— disappearance and mass extermination—was
planned well before October 1965, perhaps inspired by other cases around
the world, or planned under foreign direction, or if it emerged as a
solution as events unfolded. But Washington shares guilt for every death.
The United States was part and parcel of the operation at every stage,
starting well before the killing started, until the last body dropped and
the last political prisoner emerged from jail, decades later, tortured,
scarred, and bewildered. At several points that we know of—and perhaps some
we don’t—Washington was the prime mover and provided crucial pressure for
the operation to move forward or expand.

 << The happiest time in any man’s life is the time before he becomes a
man>>

Comrade,

I enjoyed your joy in reminiscence of childhood.  That sense of freedom and
exuberance you had as a child is almost exactly, minus the snows, of
course, growing up as I did in Mobile, AL where I lived until I moved to LA
at the age of 15.

You had snow, but we had the swamp.  Where we would 'shoot hooky' (ditch
school).  We would each bring a potato along to roast in a made campfire.
If we were lucky we would be able to down a bird or three with our BB guns,
tear off the heads, pluck the feathers disembowel and roast on a improvised
spit.  I know its cruel but it was a joy of childhood.  Picking
blackberries we had to be aware of the occasional water moccasin
(cottonmouth) but no one ever got bit.

Just before the swamp was the baseball area where we would play in
semi-organized leagues every spring to summer.  This brings up a couple of
incidents that belie the idyllic scenes I just set:

We were playing streetball when a ball was hit over my head and I ran to
chase it and throw it back in.  Out there I noticed a station wagon with 6
nuns in it.  Being Catholic I ran over to see if they needed directions
when I stopped 10 feet from the car cause the driver needed a shave.
"Klan!", I  yelled and rushed back to my friends.  The neighbors came out
and the criminals fled.

The other incident involved Mardi Gras.  At a parade a white boy, bout my
age which was maybe 12, came along with a basket of roasted peanuts that he
was selling.  Next to me a little black kid bout our age held out a dime to
him.  The vendor asked "Y'all wont some pie-nuts?"  "Yes, sir" was the
kid's answer.  That was the start of a realization that led to a
transformation.  That was when I first knew, realized, that something was
rotten in Denmark.  The Klan we understood in their hatred of us.  But the
black kid's response triggered the train that led to the thought that that
hatred, all around us in segregated Alabama, had triggered its opposite in
ourselves, a hatred of ourselves.

This is illustrated by the fact that, to this day, there is an intra-racial
racism in conquered peoples, around the world, demonstrated by the fact
that we, the lighter skinned, feel and are looked upon as superior to our
darker brothers.  Despite, or maybe because of the fact that the lighter
skinned's ancestors were raped more often and the darker skinned resisted
more.  There was a tv show, "Frank's Place", (taking place in NOLA)
discussing the 'paper bag test' where to join a social club one had to be
lighter than that paper bag.  https://www.jstor.org/stable/4137914?seq=1

This realization, occurring in many at many places was the start of the
"Black Power Movement" and its herald "Black is Beautiful".

But to my point for writing:  I would appreciate it if you began your
postings from "Unrepentant" with an introductory few sentences of
paragraphs such as the beginning three appended below.  Reading these first
three, one would have to want to read more.  They are a fine and inviting
introduction:

”,
you’ll get a good taste of the excitement of wintertime. Robert’s mother
Eleanor and mine were very close. Eleanor wrote a column called Woodridge
Whirl for the local paper and my mother took it over after the Harrises
moved to Florida.>>

Well written, well said.
JAI

In the second installment of the Internationalism series, Remi and Ahmed 
are joined by Bori, a South Korean student activist for a discussion of 
Korean history, the social dynamics underlying today’s political 
situation, the prospects for a left resurgence in RoK, and the elusive 
nature of South Korea’s much-maligned neighbor to the north and the 
unreality of reunification talks.
