Skip to comments.Hyeonseo Lee: My escape from North Korea
Posted on 03/20/2013 9:03:58 PM PDT by Jack Hydrazine
As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee thought her country was "the best on the planet." It wasn't until the famine of the 90s that she began to wonder. She escaped the country at 14, to begin a life in hiding, as a refugee in China. Hers is a harrowing, personal tale of survival and hope -- and a powerful reminder of those who face constant danger, even when the border is far behind.

slaves in NK are told that Americans are poor and starving while the truth is that NK is probably the worst place on Earth to live
What stuns me is that liberals, most TED attendies and sponsors, cannot associate this guys experience with what their designing for America.
Until they find themselves in a gulag.
