Ngor took the word for revenge and paired it with the word for people, monuss.

Why did the Cambodian people Kum. Why did the Cambodian people allow the Khmer Survival in the killing fields to herd them into the countryside as if they were valueless animals, to work twenty hour days on ill thought out if they were thought out at all projects that they would never finish, moving along to the next and then the next, starved and brutalized and murdered?

How did the the Khmer Rouge think this was going anywhere other than Well, it lead to a whole lotta death, more brutal regimes almost exactly the same new faces on top, is all and then some survival in the killing fields the old people back in charge in not-getting-on-the-news-much oppression and for some success rates to sweep under tourist postcards of the Angkor Wat.

Because it really is! It always is, somewhere. Fields of dead on dead and kum-monuss waiting to be born to replace them. BUT, they weren't really communists at all.

There are theories that the unknown leader his name wasn't known until !

The Khmer Rouge took over in Pol Pot was a deranged psychopath. There's a lot to be said for that theory.


So some privileged kids went to college in France where they learned of something called communism. Sounds like a neat way to get power, tell yourself you're in the right and nurse like snake's venom to your breast all your old little hurts by authority figures.

Maybe at first they were sick of the corruption of Sihanouk Pol Pot's cousin and aunt were in his harem. Survival in the killing fields they were idiots and didn't think out any of the theories, or bother to see how badly they failed in Russia and China, and were failing in Vietnam.
