Here's something we haven't seen in a while -- a 'Silver Bullet DHP Episode' (ie, one in which CJ records a mostly-extemporaneous discussion of a concept from his mobile podcasting studio, the Silver Bullet, while commuting.) Kicking it Old School DHP on this one! Join CJ on a couple of morning commutes to work for a freewheeling discussion on the Manichean Temptation, some of its dangers and problems, some real-world manifestations of the phenomenon, and related issues like the problem with 'extremists' (as CJ defines them here), and the need to think not just about ends, but also about means, as well as some brief info on the ways that cults exploit the Manichean Temptation to the extreme.

Richard Jewell is a 2019 historical drama film directed by Clint Eastwood about events surrounding the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bombing case, focused around the figure of Richard Jewell, the security guard who discovered the bomb and helped evacuate people away from it, but who was soon thereafter implicated by the FBI and elements of the media as a prime suspect.

In this episode, CJ talks with Mark Jacob, one of the three co-authors of the recently published book Aftershock: The Human Toll of War (published by CityFiles Press). This book presents an extensive collection of photos from the last year of World War II (many of which have never been seen before by the public) taken by US military photographers, scanned from the original negatives to give amazing picture quality, providing a unique, unfiltered, and often disturbing glimpse of what the latter phases of the largest total war in human history actually looked like. In many cases the authors have been able to research the backstories of the photos, and have provided descriptive captions that add detail and further humanize the stories told by the images.

At the 2019 Midwest Peace & Liberty Fest in Delton, Mich., CJ took the occasion of Michigan's recent legalization of marijuana to do a DHP Villains feature on the man who is arguably the most important of the Founding Fathers of the US government's war on drugs. Join CJ as he discusses the career of Harry J. Anslinger, from his early life to working for the State Department, then the Treasury Department, culminating in his tenure as first Commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics from 1930-62, during which time (among other things) he presided over the beginning of the federal government's criminalization of marijuana and the continuous amping-up of the drug war and its penalties; along the way we'll also cover Anslinger's racism & xenophobia, as well as his connections to the OSS and CIA, including lending those agencies some of his top agents for shady purposes, including some of the MK-Ultra experiments.

In this DHP episode, CJ talks with Cathal J. Nolan, associate professor of history at Boston University and author of the book The Allure of Battle: A History of How Wars Have Been Won and Lost. Join CJ & Professor Nolan as they discuss: How leaders & nations are often seduced by 'the allure of battle' and a 'short war delusion'The ways in which much existing historiography on warfare since ancient times have contributed to the glorification of the ideas of decisive battle and military genius, and how The Allure of Battle challenges these tendenciesHow wars are actually won most of the time -- namely, through things like logistics, attrition and endurance over relatively long time spans -- in contrast to the concept of decisive battleSome historical examples of alleged military geniuses who succumbed to the allure of battle, including the Duke of Marlborough, Frederick the Great, Napoleon Bonaparte, and the various German leaders of the late-nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth centurySome of the ways in which warfare has changed (and, perhaps more importantly, not changed) since the Second World WarWhether or not world leaders have learned any of the important lessons about the dangers of falling for the allure of battle and the short war delusionSupport the Dangerous History Podcast via Patreon, SubscribeStar, or Bitbacker.
