This book puts the archipelago in gulag archipelago I hope I was the first to make that observation It s really a great book Indonesia s tragedy with the U S backed Suharto dictatorship comes to life with this one man s struggle I picked this book up in Indonesia when I was traveling and the point I was making with my horrible opening remark is that I don t like Solzenitzen and this book reminds me of it too much The other book I picked up when I was there was Multatuli, which tells the tragedy of Dutch occupation, and I would recommend that. Phenomenal Takes you into the world of political prisoners living in the Indonesian gulag The writer was a brilliant mind Incredibly worldly despite a humble upbringing full of adversity, astonishingly resilient in mind and spirit.

a beautifully written, unfortunately prescient, heart breaking account of this author s own personal Guantanamo only on Buru Island, not Cuba arrested and imprisoned without charges for 12 years 1965 1977 in Indonesia at the time of Suharto s coup these are the writings he was able to keep, those he managed to hide Pram is a father who had never played with his son, a friend who struggled against his own hopelessness, to keep his fellow prisoners afloat, tortured for being honest and thoughtful. In a letter to his child entitled The Caste System and The Revolution , Pramoedya framed the social circumstances in Indonesia in terms of various caste groups which paralleled the Hindu caste system in India The etymology of Indonesia itself derives from Greek words meaning Indian islands, and Hinduism had a long history in Indonesia before the arrival of Islam For me, one of the most captivating parts of this collection of writing which Pramoedya put together as a political prisoner in an Indonesian penal colony was the way he situates American financial interests and multinationals within the rhetorical sphere of religion In the end, it was not the Indonesian military that pushed the Dutch out of Indonesia It was because of American financial interests that the Netherlands was finally forced to leave And sadly, when Indonesia s sovereignty was finally restored on December 29, 1949, the event was followed not by social unification but by social caste ification instead National freedom had been achieved but not so the aspirations behind independence No, it s not capital I dislike It s the arbitrary use of capital power that I abhor After my internment, new political prisoners informed me that the number of people killed by the military in just a few months already surpassed the entire number of people who had died in the Vietnam War And these were not men killed on the battlefield, but defenceless people without arms and even the intent to resist They were killed like rats in a gutter It was once remarked that Indonesians are the most gentle people on earth The world must therefore have been amazed when these very same people embarked on a rampage of murder of a scale with very few comparisons in the history of man. Traditionally when praying to or trying to appease the local gods, people sacrifice buffaloes, chickens, or goats or leave them offerings of flowers It seems that for the new multinational gods, Indonesia s satria warrior caste had prepared an almost unsurpassable human sacrifice These Indonesian mass killings of 1965 1966 were an incomprehensible horror that unfolded in, what is today, the fourth most populous nation in the world Between 500,000 to over 1 million people died After watching Joshua Oppenheimer s 2012 documentary The Act of Killing , I felt queasy and unsettled for a number of days afterward The things done in the name of supposed stability A very narrow notion of stability that entails a good environment for attracting capital investments, and translates into cracking down on supposed communist threats in the most efficient manner, that is, with zero due process. Southeast Asia is very close to my heart Most of my family still lives there There s such a confluence of cultures entangled together there, and it s an incredibly beautiful part of the world with immense biodiversity And so I ve tried to learn about it over the years, as a way of feeling closer to family and also better connecting with the geographical history that has shaped the generations preceding me, and ultimately myself. It still saddens me when I ponder the extent to which America was involved in perpetuating the 1965 1966 mass killings in the name of communist crack downs It further saddens me at how Lee Kuan Yew was such close friends with Suharto, and shared such a horrifying conception of humanity and social order I think reading good ol Harry Lee saying something like, If I have to shoot 200,000 students to save China from another 100 years of disorder, so be it no matter the context, it s revealing of how similar Lee Kuan Yew s notion of governance aligned with Suharto s But reading Lee Kuan Yew interviews, you discover how large a role Japanese brutalities in Singapore shaped Lee s dark Hobbesian conception of the world Violence begets violence Pramoedya also detailed the sickening brutalities that occurred in Indonesia under Japanese occupation, and how they were far worse than the oppression they suffered under Dutch colonialism Yet Pramoedya s response to Japanese brutality was not the same as Lee Kuan Yew s Authoritarianism was not the answer to violence A wise sage once said, Those who live by the sword, die by the sword You can be an agnostic Muslim humanist like Pramoedya and live out the gospel far than some people who hear it every Sunday in church St Paul wrote For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous in God s sight, but the doers of the law who will be justified When people of the nations, who do not possess the law, do instinctively what the law requires, these, though not having the law, are a law to themselves They show that what the law requires is written on their hearts, to which their own conscience also bears witness Romans 2 13 15 Pramoedya was one of these people who had teachings of peace and justice written on his heart, to which his own conscience also bore witness. It s nothing less than a miracle that Pramoedya s prison writings survived, 800 pages of them, which were so wonderfully distilled into this treat of a book by his editors and translators I actually stumbled upon this book by accident I picked it up at an interesting book sale where you were basically allowed to stuff a large shopping bag full of as many books as you could and leave for only 10 I started reading this book quite a while ago, but it lost its way in the shuffle of things, and I only recently thought to get back to it I think Pramoedya s a very engaging writer, and his writing draws on so many interesting fields of thought he s encountered in his own reading He s very opinionated, and even when I often find myself disagreeing with his perspective, I still find him such a pleasure to read Sometimes, especially when writing to his children, he sounds like one of my aunts lecturing me about staying safe and being responsible I hope to read one of his novels one day I find Pramoedya s courage and persistence in not standing down from power, remarkable To think that he could be imprisoned by both the Dutch colonial powers in the late 1940 s and later by his own nationalist government in 1960 s 1970 s just by sitting behind a typewriter and sharing his thoughts, speaks volumes to his ability as a writer Pramoedya was a 20th century Jeremiah writing on scrolls that King Jehoiakim did not look too favourably upon as he burned them strip by strip on his apartment brazier Jeremiah 36 23 Jeremiah 22 16 17 reads He judged the cause of the poor and needy then it was well. Is not this to know me says the Lord. But your eyes and heart are only on your dishonest gain,for shedding innocent blood, and for practicing oppression and violence That s the sort of stuff that gets you imprisoned, whether by the colonial government Babylon or your own government King Zedekiah It s a wonder prophetic writings survive, but maybe it s not so surprising considering how much they mean to the common people who read them and understand the ways they speak truth to power. Through a series of letters to his children and various essays written during his 14 year imprisonment, Pramoedya provides a simple, poignant and emotional journey of his love of his family, of Indonesia and it s history. His letters cover topics from making sure his children do their homework to history, folklore, the Japanese occupation of Indonesia, life in the prison island of Buru, the corruption of the military and of Pramoedya s travels prior to imprisonment He also tries to figure out why he and many others were imprisoned, without charge or conviction, removed from society simply because of their intellect, bad luck, political views or for no reason at all.
