117 – The Jakarta Method by Vincent Bevins (Part III)

We finish our final third of Vincent Bevins' The Jakarta Method: Washington's Anticommunist Crusade and the Mass Murder Program that Shaped Our World about some of the most pivotal yet hugely unsung hinge points in the Cold War, centered around the mass slaughter of communists (and those alleged to be) in Indonesia circa 1965-66. We discuss the spread of anticommunist massacres in Chile, the Philippines, Argentina, Guatemala and beyond and try to take stock of what the whole Cold War period of installing murderous proxy dictatorships around the globe really amounted to and what it left us with at present.
