North Korea is the model for every socialist on Earth.
It’s them or us.
It's one of the most powerful books I've ever read.
Heaven forbid if Shin should talk like a Christian who appreciates good food. This is not a surprise... NK is Satan’s playground... and a lotta folks don’t care.. wake up Americans..
To know this kind of evil exists and who is perpetrating it and not deliver death from above to them is just plain wrong.
Sounds like paradise doesn’t it?
Oh, they see it as wrong. It’s just that when it boils down to us, we will do it the right way. It’s how they think. Communism and socialism are great! It just wasn’t done right in the past, they’ll do it right.
I read a similar book, "Aquariums of Pyongyang: Ten Years in the North Korean Gulag".
Interestingly, the guy who wrote the book, his family was well off in Japan (Grandfather had amassed a fortune). But his grandmother was a dedicated lifelong communist since the 1930s. It was his Grandmother that uprooted part of the family to move them to North Korea, thinking she was leading them to paradise.
The first sign that something was wrong when they stepped off the boat and onto North korean soil for the first time. Not a single person was smiling. As they started off their life in North Korea, at first everything was ok. They were of the privileged few. And they had their family members in Japan send them whatever goods they needed. But it wasnt long before the entire family was picked up and taken to one of the concentration camps in North Korea. At first the Grandmother was convinced that this was some sort of mistake that would soon be rectified. It took 2 years of incarceration in the camp (they would be there for 10 years) before she became thoroughly disillusioned with communism.
It strikes me that it took that long in a communist concentration camp for her to finally see the light. You'd think she would have taken a hint the very second they arrived there.
Because American leftists dont have it nearly as hard as an inmate of a communist concentration camp, as a matter of fact they have it quite good, it can take much longer to get them disillusioned with leftism. Many times there just is no hope for them.
Yes...it is indeed either “them or us”. Problem is...most Americans are too damned stupid to figure out who the “them” is.
Amazing, isn’t it? How.... even with all of the multitudes of examples throughout history where communists have managed to literally create Hell on Earth....(and that has been a constant in the universe, by the way).....we still have morons here in the USA that seem to think that the commie way is the best way...and is what they want to transform America into.
If you question that...just witness their atypical leftist attacks on two principles of anti-commmunist mentality. Capitalism and Christianty...both of which have made this country THE best nation on earth, IMO.
I keep asking......or rather, I keep having to ask. And I will continue to ask.....until I get the answer.
Pitchfork time yet?
No doubt, if we get into a shooting war with North Korea, the “progressives” in the USA will support the enemy like they have with every other war in modern times. In fact, I.F Stone, who was an icon of the left in the 60s and widely heralded as the conscience of the left, was on the record of favoring North Korea during the Korean War. It will be no different this time.
One review of Escape from Camp 14 stated that the US (under Clinton) has sent aid to North Korea, that the US has helped the regime to survive.
This may be the answer to the question asked in my tagline.
