I’ve watched most of his videos. It’s very sad. A lot of the people he confronts are actual socialists/communists and members of the organization. They brainwash their members well. Despite him providing facts of his life in communism, it falls on deaf ears.
I read a book called The Aquariums of Pyongyang, and it’s told a by a man who spent 10 years in a concentration camp in North Korea. His grandmother and grandfather lived with their family in Japan where they were very wealthy due to the money the grandfather made due to capitalism. His grandmother, however, was big in the Chosen Soren, which is a group of Koreans in Japan lobbying for communism in Korea. She was treated well by the communists in that organization, and she was a vociferous promoter of communism. The communists in North Korea promised the Koreans in Japan excellent treatment if they came there, and so the grandmother convinced the whole family to pack up and head to North Korea. The man’s uncle had told him he knew something wasn’t right when they got off the boat as people were telling them they shouldn’t have come. The communist party gave them a house but gradually took their possessions like his car (you aren’t allowed to travel in North Korea without government permission). They eventually ended up throwing the grandparents, the two sons that lived at home, and the grandkids (three generation rule) into a camp. The grandmother cried to another woman she met in the van on the way to the camp, and they commisserated that they were there after all they had “done for the party”.
When I read that story, I thought of the young commies in this country who think it’s going to be some sort of paradise, when the result will be the opposite. They will be the useful idiots.
“The North Koreans aren’t doing it right. Socialism isn’t like that.”
The true believers don’t care how many people socialism has killed in the past 100 years. And they don’t care how many it will kill in the next 100 years. They want to “keep trying until we get it right.”
