Our Legends of the Left Series Debuts

Pol Pot was a man with a plan.

Not unlike his contemporary and fellow leftist intellectual Pierre Trudeau, Pot found his home and native land, Cambodia in this case, not at all to his tastes and decided on a teardown-rebuild, along lines inspired by his hero Mao Tse Tung.

In a move that must make Gregor Robertson giddy to contemplate, in 1975 (or "Year Zero" as he dubbed it) PP decreed that henceforth everyone in Cambodia would be a farmer, and as he and his Khmer Rouge party had taken the country beyond politics and divisiveness, buy-in was to be 100%.

Net result- a reduction in Cambodia’s carbon footprint to warm the cockles of Maurice Strong's liver, due in no small part to about a quarter of the country’s population receiving the final leftist sacrament - euthanasia.
