So I am not the only one thinking of Pol Pot recently.
Yeeah, but the only good part of him seems to be his last name.
Well, it's worth to waste a few seconds to think about where the Americans came from.

Pol Pot's war on teachers has been in the back of my mind recently, with Burke's warnings about "peculating despotism" and "disorderly government" not far behind.
