Takes on the World: Suzy Hansen: Notes from Foreign Country in Post-American World

Date Uploaded: 2018-02-21 22:46:29.0
This is a continuation of my conversation of October 25 2017 with Suzy Hansen, author of “Notes from a Foreign Country: An American Abroad in a Post-American World” (Farrer, Strauss, Giroux) in which she discusses Turkish politics and its uneasy history with the United States, within now in its greatest crisis to date as US support for the Kurds sticks in Turkey’s throat; the significance of America’s providing protection for Fethullah Gulen, his influence on Turkish society and his being used an excuse for a post-coup attempt crackdown by the Erdogan government.
She also talks about Greece and the post WW2 crushing of the Greek left on behalf of that country’s fascist government as the model for later US interventions; her discussion with Greek economist Yanis Varoufakis who explained how the US used the Truman Doctrine and the Marshall Plan to save the US economy while appearing to be the benefactor to post WW2 Europe.
Writes Suzy Hansen:
“We cannot go abroad today as Americans in the 21st century and not realize that the main thing that has been terrorizing us….is our own ignorance - - our blindness and subsequent discovery of all the people on whom the empire-that-was-not-an-empire had been constructed without our attention and concern.”
“Americans,” she notes, “were in active denial of their empire even as they laid its foundations.”

Prior to World War 2, Japanese Canadians living in British Columbia were an industrious community of new Canadians.

Following Japan's bombing of Pearl Harbor, they were removed from the West Coast and lost all their property. Terry Watada says the key factors were racism and greed. His novel provides an inside view of a community seeking ways to survive and resist.

Sometimes cities come up with theme songs. We'll demonstrate why you shouldn't do that. You'll find another song of the colonel kind where you'll wonder why we play it, and not so soothing synthesizer sounds of the past. Yeah, we're a bit negative....which is positively cheezy!
