Aung San Suu Kyi was once as revered as saintly leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela. Therefore, it is a stunning measure of her fall from grace that she is now as reviled as tin-pot dictators like Pol Pot and Idi Amin.
Listeners have accused me of giving away too much in these show notes. So I’ll end by noting that this episode shows how I was damning Suu Kyi when no less a person than former President Barack Obama was still (literally) embracing her.
