How Morgan Zegers' Communist Roommate Was a Catalyst for Her Work

"Why did you think it was important to get on film the experiences in the interviews of people from China from Cuba from North Korea from Venezuela? What was the initial impetus for you? Yeah, well, for me, I think it's because I had a personal experience when I went to college. Now, I had no idea that the situation with our public school system and with how we educate young people on the history of the 20th century and socialism and communism specifically was so bad until I went to school myself and I had a communist roommate. Now I've told your listeners about this before, but she basically had a poster on her wall on day one of Mao Zedong, Lenin. Let's be clear here. This isn't somebody who came here from North Korea or Vietnam. This is an American girl at an American college with a poster of mass murderers on her wall who wasn't hiding it, but self professed her identity as a communist, correct? Exactly. And so I ended up in a problem because I'm talking to this self identifying communist with mass murderers and dictators on her wall, and she's getting me the classic talking points that her ideas are going to lift up the American working class. They're going to work this time because America is a democracy and it's going to be different than the dictatorships of the past. And so on. Basically that it's progressive and compassionate and that I was the cruel one for not supporting this. And for me, the really big lightbulb moment for myself was the fact that I'm a colonel's daughter. He served in operation Iraqi freedom. He was at the site of 9 11 in the clean up. My dad taught me to love history and respect history, but when it came to me finally being face to face with a communist young person, I had no idea what to say. And so I figured a lot of my peers are probably going to be put in my shoes one day where they're in this conversation. They have no idea how to defend their values because they weren't given a proper education. And that inspired me to figure out how can I open my peers eyes to the harsh truths of history. And by that, the solution really is firsthand testimony interviewing people who actually experienced it. And what is the organization that you founded as a result of that experience with your roommate? Yeah, so originally I started a nonprofit called young Americans against socialism, and we do a bunch from social educational content on apps like Facebook and Instagram and all the young people stuff. But now we're moving into these longer form interviews where we can truly document someone's entire life story of escaping communism. And of course, then what it's like to live in America now versus their communist home country, and then are they seeing any similarities. And now actually, I'm pretty excited we've been transitioning into also providing educational resources and booklets because we want to help out parents who are highly concerned about what's going on in the school system. So we're trying to hit all the marks that we can.

Fresh update on "north korea" discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast

"General secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization, come here to this gate, mister Gorbachev. Open this gate. You could never trust. Mister Gorbachev tear down this wall. I'm not being nostalgic dear Friends playing that, although I could play that every single hour of every single day of this show. Because of its significance, standing there at the Brandenburg gate in front of the Berlin Wall that separated families actually separated German families that cleaved through the heart of Europe. A symbol of freedom on one side and captive nations on the other. I played that for you because of its relevance today. 17 months after that speech was given by a president who had had those lines tear down this wall removed 6 times by his own State Department. Yes, the deep state is older than president Trump's administration. Lines that he had to manually reinsert by hand into the hard copy of the speech as he was driving in the beast of the Brandenburg gate. 17 months after those words were uttered, tear down this wall, the wall was torn down, but not by God of a child. Not by the apparatus Germany, but by the prisoners of East Germany. By the citizens, who manually with their hands with ropes with change with pickaxes, took down the wall that inhumanly separated people from people that was assembled of a slave nation and a slave ideology. Today the ideology is alive and well. It's alive and well on the campuses of America. It's alive and well inside Palo Alto. It's alive and well in Hollywood. But in its most deadly form it is alive and well. In the nations of North Korea of Cuba and of China, a nation that has labor camps a nation that has utter total surveillance over its citizens that welds them into their homes as part of their zero COVID policy. A nation where right now, just as in 1956 on the streets of Budapest, the students are going out to protest the regime, the regime which is built on power and brute force alone, a regime with one political party. The Communist Party of China, a regime where if you say the wrong thing, if you make a joke about Xi Jinping, you try to download the wrong app. You will have the secret police on your doorstep. You may disappear. You may even be killed if you resist the writ of the new emperor clothed in red. The students of China may be ostensibly protesting the new round of lockdown measures for zero COVID, but it's not about zero COVID. It's about the inner yearning for freedom. It is about students holding up blank pieces of paper. And chanting she must go because this is what we're allowed to say. Nothing..

Winston Churchill's Warning of the Iron Curtain

Winston Churchill's Warning of the Iron Curtain

"To get this visual idea of a curtain coming down, when this speech came out, this was a fault that had been around that you used a mini, this separated the two sides. This iron curtain is a movable object that is coming down in which the east and the west were separate. If you read deeply into the speech, you can see that Churchill's desire, is there not to be a separation. I think he believed inherently that if there would be more cooperation, there would be more influence. There would be more contact. There would be more of the freedom contacting the non freedom that the freedom would win out. Of course, the USSR did not want that freedom. They did not want their influence, the people influenced by free invest you saw this iron curtain is Churchill. So poetically put, crossing the continent of Europe and taking what was free on one side as he talks about and then what was not free on the other. If you look at this today, the concern that is out there among many. Is that we are seeing communist states. Our totalitarian states who are seeing more and more of an opportunity to expand their sphere of influence and expand opportunities. We're seeing them become more closed in. You see North Korea that is one of the most backward, small countries in the world that terrorizes all people for it's living. And a very existence. You have China who's spreading more and more and putting pressure on its neighbors. You see Russia who is taking armed aggression into those to provide a quote buffer, real or imagined in Putin's head to keep the Soviet Union or the Russia and protection. This is seems in 1945 or 1946 in this speech but I believe Winston Churchill laying out the facts. That in a world in which you have divisions of beliefs in freedom and expansion for people that the governments of the world are going to have to be able to cooperate with each other and experience the benefits of freedom, the benefits of a government in which you have a legislative executive you have a judiciary that is on its own and not try to keep people in the dark or behind the curtain of freedom. This is going to be the battle as we go forward. It was the battle then. And it's something now that you hear a great deal of spoken of whether it's in the Ukrainian president zelensky, you hear it with the other country surrounding them, is that if this happens in Ukraine, what is next? Is it simply going to stop here?

Setting the Stage for a World on the Brink of War

"The stage worldwide. Worldwide, we have Iran, North Korea, we have China. We have Russia. We have the terrorist groups in the Middle East. We have war constantly in Ethiopia. Some of the African nations, we have a war in Ukraine right now with Russia, a lot is unsettled on the world stage. And a lot for probably one of the first time since World War II, we're seeing this on sadness leading us closer and closer to conflict. When you look at what North Korea is doing with their nuclear testing, which they just tested and ICBM, which if given the right range and given the proper aerodynamic, could reach the United States. Again, could they actually pull it off? Still remains to be seen. But they're testing on a much quicker and higher note. You've got China who is taking the South China Sea, being very aggressive towards Taiwan, being aggressive toward the neighbors around. Again, just sort of seemingly pushing the envelope. When recently with President Biden, and also, frankly, it was an interesting with freer Trudeau. Justin Trudeau with the Canadian prime minister was very aggressive over what he believed was a leaking of their conversations to the media. And he was very abrupt in how he confronted that. As you go forward. So again, China flexing its muscles on the stage. I think China feels like they're with the American pullback, which we saw again in Obama. We're seeing it again in the Biden administration that there is an opening for China to assert its anonymous. Iran Iran is just Iran. And the human rights violations are still the greatest funder of terrorism in the Middle East. And they have their outlets of regimes Hezbollah and others who carry out their wishes and this is just who Iran is. It's been a destabilizing force in the Middle East for a long time.

BLM's Patrisse Cullors Admits the Movement Is Founded in Marxism

"We are trained marxists that are, quote, super versed in the ideology of Marxism, which is quite a thing to admit, yes, she's not doing that on keyboard television. She's doing it at some left wing oriented meeting or blog. But the fact is, she's admitting admitting to what that she is a disciple of Karl Marx, of the ideology of Marxism, which is responsible for the death of more than a 100 million people in just the 20th century alone that is right now, persecuting Chinese people in China, the largest communist dictatorship in the world today before our very eyes. And also a ideology which, as a pillar, states what of our system, the American system, the western system, that it can not live peacefully. It can not coexist with Marxism. This is the challenge that we will be discussing. It goes straight to the heart of the paper co authored by Mike and my wife, Katie. The Cold War was relatively simple. Why? Because the enemy was so less of great extent, was external. It was the Soviet Union, it was the Warsaw Pact. It was communist Cuba. It was North Korea. It could be pointed at as over there. And the way to deal with it was to defeat it militarily or to undermine ideologically. When the marxists, when the communists are quote unquote, inside the wire, when they're not Soviet tank regiments arrayed across the iron curtain, but they're actually U.S. citizens on U.S. soil with all the rights endowed them by the U.S. Constitution. It's a very, very different challenge.

Katie Gorka Unpacks the Challenges of Domestic Marxist Threats

"Much of a challenge is it that this Marxist threat isn't in Moscow isn't in Cuba? Isn't in North Korea. But it's domestic. How much of a limitation is it on our means to respond because we can't use the U.S. Military? We can't use sanctions. How much of a challenge is this different location for the threat? Yeah, that's a great question. And I think it's a, you know, I don't think there's a straightforward answer to that. I mean, obviously we can not arrest our way out of this. We have to we have to argue our way out of this. We have to help more Americans understand exactly why this is so insidious. So I mean, the easiest way to talk about it is what's happening in the university. Because I think so many parents have had that experience. Thank goodness we have not. But I know many, many parents have had the experience where, you know, they pay a fortune or they go into debt to send their children to a university or college, only to have their kids come back after the first year, kind of hating the country and not wanting to talk to their parents. You know, we're letting the universities indoctrinate our children. We've got to wake up to this. And so yeah, it is a really big problem. And you know, the other unfortunate thing is, this has been going on long enough that really I think a good portion of our younger people have been indoctrinated into these ideas at universities. I mean, that's why we're seeing so many of our institutions kind of caught up in this.

I mean, it's just simple as that, listen, I don't think that Trump is a liability to the GOP, that's a bunch of nonsense. I defer a little bit in where I don't, I didn't like the tag to desantis. I think this is the time to be united and not divided unless they do get into a primary. But I'll say this. I want Trump to be the next president. And I'll tell you, I'll tell you why.

OFAC Backtracks (Somewhat) on Tornado Cash Sanctions

"First, one of the most significant tipping points in the regulatory discussion this year happened when the office of foreign asset control or ofac sanctioned tornado cash. Tornado cash is a mixing service that adds privacy to crypto transactions by making it difficult to see inputs and outputs. The sanctions brought up some serious questions. In fact, I would argue that they were one of the most galvanizing actions the government has ever taken against crypto. One of the big questions was did ofac actually have the authority to sanction a smart contract. This was completely new territory and caught a lot of people off guard. We've seen sanctions in the past, but they've always been for individuals, but not for entire protocols or smart contracts. Another question was even if effect did have that authority. Is it technically feasible in the case of digital asset addresses are of course public, meaning that people could be sent tainted assets against their desires? That is in fact exactly what happened in the hours after the sanctions were announced. Last week, I had David Hoffman from bankless on the show to discuss the lawsuit that he coin center and others were party to against the treasury. The lawsuit was focused on the compliance requirements now placed upon him for life because he was dusted with tornado cash related eth as a prominent public figure. Anyway, this is obviously been a situation that people are watching closely, and this week we got some updates. The Department of the Treasury who runs and who is responsible for maintaining the sanctions list has delisted and re designated tornado cash. This is perhaps in response to legal challenges, but it also could be a measure to turn up rhetoric regarding North Korea. The first sanctions happened in August and again the big issue was that the quote unquote designated person being sanctioned appeared to be the actual smart contract that governs the operation of tornado cash rather than a person or organization as required theoretically by sanctions legislation. In what appears to be a step to rectify the situation, the treasury has clarified that the organization being sanctioned is the tornado cash organization. The treasury goes on to describe the organizational structure consisting of tornado cash's founders and developers, as well as the Dow formed around the service.

Meet Canada's most adventurous tech city at live tech, love life dot com. I wonder if I can get you to play translator for me with the Treasury Department. Sure. I'll try my best. That's Jason Bartlett. He's an expert in international sanctions policy. Among other things, he studies North Korea. So he was the perfect person to help understand this statement from the Treasury Department from early May. It says they sanctioned virtual currency mixer blender. Which is used by the democratic people's republic of Korea, AKA North Korea. To support its malicious cyber activities and money laundering of stolen virtual currency. I wonder, as an expert on all of this, if you could put that into plain English for me, what does that mean? It was a very significant measure by treasury because it was the first ever designation of a cryptocurrency mixer. And why that matters is that for the past year and a half, the Biden administration has really tried to wrap its head around cryptocurrency and how it is potentially used to finance bad activity. And if you use crypto to finance shady things like terrorism or nuclear weapons, you don't want a digital trail. And that's where our mixer comes in. Think of it as a technology where you put in one kind of crypto. And another kind comes out. So some mixers have different functions, some allow you to put in Bitcoin. It can come out of Ethereum. Or other times they allow you to switch around the addresses. So it's really hard to tell who is putting the crypto when, where and why, and how it's coming out. If that sounds to you, like a great way to launder money, you're not alone. North Korea thinks so too. Unfortunately, usually by the time that law enforcement is able to attribute a hack to North Korea, the hack already happened either a couple of days or a couple of weeks ago, even a couple months ago. So it's very hard to try to try to get that money back, really find out where it went. Sanctioning a mixer, Jason says, is a signal that the U.S. may finally be upping its game against North Korea's hacking army. Today on the show, how North Korea got so good a crypto hacking,.

Crossland and these rabbits guys are so big their biggest dogs they make about eight kilos of of me absolutely. Yeah that's huge but it may have been. I was thinking about this. It may have been despite the food shortage that they tried the rabbits. 'cause you should try before you like do this whole thing you wanna start a rabbit industry. Nobody wants nobody wants them but maybe date them and they didn't taste good. That's that's another. I could see that. I could see that but there are other crazy stories as well. Another story is that. There is a difference in size between north and south korean nationals. And it's thought to be due to to malnutrition than north koreans. Who were subjected to. Yeah you hear this. A lot from especially from americans so former presidential candidate john mccain talked about it in two thousand eight debate Christopher hitchens talked about it in an article in slate but some actual research instead of just rendering came from guy named professor daniel schwer From a university in seoul he said on average north. Korean men are about one and a half to three inches shorter than men in south korea. And the interesting thing is that due to the homogeneous nature of the population like genetically right We know that this doesn't come from a large variation or diversity in the gene pool.

That mean this is one of the big worries in your life. If you a north korean and like we can look at one of these things like during the famine of the nineteen ninety s. That's the thing you mentioned earlier. The arduous march through somewhere in this is a huge huge variants in number here but somewhere between two hundred and forty thousand and three point. Five million north koreans died of vacation or some form of hunger related issue right yes so maybe not just starvation directly but something exacerbated by starvation This yeah this number is Huge number two huge variance. As we said but i In a country that does keep adequate records or does allow people in more easily. The you still have a variance. You still have a variance because it's difficult to say the exact cause of death rain but then in countries But in the case of north korea this is even more difficult because there are very few official numbers kept in. That's been the case for fifty years. Yeah this leads us. Through something darker though yep cannibalism so there is confirmation of. Let's say isolated cases of y. You know there are also a lot of rumors about cannibalism rights of some of these isolated cases would p. stuff like a grandfather digging up his graves after they passed away and eating them because he had to the idea But there are also these rumors of large scale. Cannibalism that took place during certain times in north korea. Really we we don't know we can't prove it right because these statements come down often through defectors.

"north korea" Discussed on Stuff They Don't Want You To Know Audio

"The grandfather of kim jong un the current leader. Yes kim il sung is the is a god-like figure a kim. Il-sung is the leader of north korea. Which means that technically speaking. He is considered still the leader of north korea despite his death. There's your three generational rule there Yes and it's interesting. You say that we'll we'll see how that shakes out later. A kim il-sung is referred to as the great leader. The country's eternal president His birthday as a holiday. It's called the day of the son. He ruled north korea of for forty six years from nineteen forty eight until he passed away in nineteen ninety four During the time leading up to is passed away his son. Kim jong il who most of us will probably remember better He took leadership and it was during his rule that the country encountered some of those very tense difficult times including The famine known as the arduous march and nuclear standoffs But we have a new leader now and that is One of his sons. Right now. Kim jong hoon. He was selected by kim jong il over his other two others. That's i mean. Hey props man right yeah he. He is interesting because he has a He has a european schooling so he is someone who has been raised outside of the country. And i believe he went to school in switzerland. He is not necessarily the he he is not necessarily the air heir-apparent in the way with think these things normally go. He's not eldest son. No there were issues. Let's say with two the other candidates that would have been before him right. Yes so there. Are two other candidates. Was kim jong nam and kim jong tool And i'm mispronouncing i apologize. I don't speak korean very well. But the The brothers were the brothers who didn't make it Were passed over because one of them was caught trying to go to tokyo. Disneyland in two thousand. One and there was a huge embarrassment. One of the others was seen as effeminate by their father So here we are with kim jong hoon as The leader of the dprk or at least the face of it. And that's that's the important thing right. Despite the appearance of an absolute monarchy right The private version seems a little bit different. There are a lot of high raking senior officials that date back or did date back all the way to the days of kimmel song and seniority being so important in this society their words carry weight. Oh yeah and it's i feel like the system is kind of similar to hire advisers that let's say. The president listened to on a daily basis to make a high level decisions even if they're repeatedly wrong. Oh yeah but it's you know you you kind of have to go with the person that probably knows best right yeah And another another weird thing here So the stated aim of north korea is reunification. It's something that both create want in principle right and The problem there is that the the problem there is that the there's just a battle of population that occurs because both both want. The peninsula reunified in some manner or way because there were families that were split apart by this divisions thirty eighth parallel division But you know both countries wanna be in the driver's seat right and then when you look at the population you you mentioned that. The republic of korea has almost twice as many almost twice as many people So we would seem as though if you were just looking from that aspect alone you. They would kind of absorb north korea. Or at least that's the way it seems. And i'm pretty certain north korea wouldn't want that right We we are going to look at some of the questions about that too toward toward the end here now met you watched the interview right. I did yeah. I watched the interview to it. Wasn't it wasn't my favorite thing. I felt like you know what's what's the point where satire just becomes kind of racism. But i i'm a big fan of seth rogan James franco. I think they're funny guys. the guy who played kim jong un is is a really funny. Do but you have to wonder how much of that is again like propaganda but there was a great point interview Where they say that there is a false impression that this nation strives to give visitors and the outside world. Oh yeah the. I'm thinking of the scene in particular. Where james franco's character goes and finds that little food store in. It's just all fake food and it's all props essentially setups for him and other outsiders to think that there is plentiful food in the area yet. There's a great Read it ama from a north From a photographer who's traveling to north korea. Pretty often until he started being refused entry for taking photos. You shouldn't take and he said that There are few there's like two supermarkets and killing young or something but the only people really Shop at those are the elite of. We know that there is propaganda. Work in north korea. And you know it's its own industry as well so it's difficult to understand how much of what the government says is true how to parse the truth between the statements. But there's another point this makes us think of well. Yeah it's not just propaganda coming out of north korea of about how great it is. There's also a ton of propaganda aimed at you about how bad north korea is an all these terrible things and how everyone there is starving though there is some truth to it. A lot of this stuff are just exaggerations to kind of shape your view of the country as a whole right. There's a lot of an echo chamber going on a and nowhere was this more apparent then In the recent interview related news.

There's a there's a culture there that's like hungry to become realized like the people that were like that that are silenced by the 'electricity by the actually having no food all kinds of things like if you add thirsty.

This privilege is not us. Nothing is about us being special here right. The system that we have is pressure and north korea proves it to us.

America is truly the land of the free home of the brave.

We cannot grow where you should be. They're safe to talk about anything. And the later okay. I was wrong. The knife you do that. You got like get penalized for i mean. Censorship is a funny thing because you probably should not say dumb. Things should try to say things you want to say in the most eloquent the most effective way. You can't so i mean. That's what editing is right. So there's some level of like being careful with what you say. Not because you're afraid of some overarching kinda group of bullies. But you wanna be the best version of yourself when you express stuff but there's some sense where in the university setting you can put that self censorship like level down more and say stupid stuff and explained and play because you should be forgiven for that kind of Play especially when you're discussing difficult aspects of human history whether that that include racism that that include Atrocities am still nevertheless sort of hopeful.

"Capitalistic american. Way you can still at the same time Not feel too bad about yourself and still focus on the the suffering in the world. And i think there's some way that in trying to build a better world in america it has ripple effects elsewhere. Sir like somma fan of rockets in space. It's it sounds perhaps counterintuitive but sending rockets space will help solve the north korea A a problem because it lets people dream and build cool stuff. It's not the rocket is the other people that like are inspired by the rocket. And then look to other problems in the woman. Mean that's what he did is like he saw problems in the world and saw like. What can i do to help it. And i think the north korea one is a tough one though. Because that's ultimately has to do with revolutionizing government with china that china. That's what it takes can you. China's comments part is impossible. That's why we couldn't solve north care for that. Medicaid is china for knowledge. china is china. It's so it's a russia. It's certain aspects of the united states and struggling with that. The one of the you know there's a bunch of technologies that are striving at this For example I don't know what your thoughts about cryptocurrencies. So like there's a idea that money could be a way to destroy or to challenge the the power centers of the world. So if you give if you take away the power from fiat currency and give it to this thing. That can't be controlled by government this cryptocurrency whereas bitcoin theme all those kinds of things. That's the way to get money into the hands of people to where the government can't take that money away but nour's done have alleged city. You know internet so we can do that with china. We can do it. A lot of african dictatorship countries right. Do think be cryptocurrency. Search fascinating technology right. I think this is amazing. Experiment when that power in our hands. I'm a huge out of kim believer but think northridge to behind you know the that's what is unique about nurse creates most of things that we talk about is now please different planet literally the common law that we have now pre couple. What about the kim jong kim jong. Yeah is he intentionally evil or is he. mind the mindlessly propagating an evil system created by his ancestors. What's your sense of the man. So we to kim yourself. I can't give him more beneficial. Thought he was a insured triplet of communism but then as later he gained power. He realizing i think i suspect they had thought most people are dumb. My individuals tom. So therefore i need to make a decision for all of you. That pure arrogance came from of even that i can tolerate. Okay fine and kim jong air who never like yeah fine. He grew up in the system to but kim dolan is very unique. This guy was educated. In switzerland in the heart of democracy he knew how human beings this should be treated as a child. He went when your child. Your brain is very susceptible but you change anybody like why the mall was solved as a changing young people's minds like that's every revolutionary. They do right.

And it's really important for north korea but just keep talking about it until there's until hopefully leads to at the highest levels of power re revolutionizing the systems in the world and then In china and north korea do you see not career being a potential instigator of a nuclear war. They were not starting curry war as long as they can do. Whatever they want right now. North korea's army not designed to fight the enemy did design to prevent their own people could the and the revolution with their own citizens. That is one point.

That's why you do that. Humans need to learn is not anything bad about human nature just saying she means arkhipova everything. We are the most adaptable species on the planet. That's why we create internet. I talking this way right nor there anymore have done because we are so adaptable. That is a good thing. And it's a bad thing. So in the adopters tradition day or can be mean during the holocaust right those people they could have been capable of good to if they were exposed to different system. And that's why when people under a sm- evil that's what scares me. Either is evil is a different thing is a completely different thing. And of course i get your idea. We don't want to isolate one point. Three billion human beings in on earth. Why chinese but the thing is we are talking about this regime. Not the people. I love chinese vice big chinese. I loved like all about the comanche but the system does promote evil with an optimistic view. Actually because we can fix systems yeah It's hard to fix people so we fixed systems and the people are adoptable apps it he said i mean that and then the question is First of all you have.

"Aspect in which that experience gives you a clarity about the world like somehow experiencing suffering allows you to deep deeply experienced joy yet and love and also empathize with the suffering of others. And like it's almost like brings you closer to other humans so it's this double edged sword that That the highest joys sometimes are catalyzed by suffering. And it's hard to know what to do with that. You see that was world war. Two the stories of soldiers that have suffered but some of the closest bonds of brotherhood of just pure love was experienced by them. And it's it sucks that our brains are like this you know the love requires hardship. I don't know why that is. Yeah that's like that's thing of course in my journal learned how to survive right when to not trust and meant to run but i think most of i was keep learning what it means to be a human being. I think that was like ultimate thing. I was keep learning. And i stood on lawfully. Men's by i do think seems like suffering is next Take for people to be grateful and even be joyful to sometimes. Yeah so i talk about love quite a bit. You mentioned romantic love On fascinating about love and many aspects But you you mentioned. Romantic love was forbidden in north korea. Would you think about love now. The kind of discovered it was the role of love in life. Why was it. So why do you think was forbidden. North korea so tragic thing banners career not only just banning shakespeare like. We don't even know. Julia is right. Our movies never love stories but then today banned the love between mother daughter wife and husband and you know and you between your friends it deny you being a human. So only love. The i knew was when. I describe my feeling tours. The leader and in return for that was only love. That people are north korea and Like there man you love you can experience. I think you definitely love science right. Imagine if you're being denied so there are so many loves in life but in north korea all of those are denied and i think for me is love makes you tick like in a law for your chad now for your parents friends lauffer even your surf. That is denied. So i mean many people say like love is auction but like then why do you live. Thank you relived love. And it doesn't have to be romantic love. It can be anything but finding love and it in any person in any subject. I think that's a goal. I think that's when people find meaning in something yet. We'll of romantic. Love is just one sort of of it. One echo of the some corps thing yes science science of robots all of those things..

"And then these everything you believe. In north korea was online. It was a propaganda. Then at fifteen. I was thinking so if everything that i believe was ally. How do i know what you're attending. Non thou was so hard. How do i trust ever again. And i just. It was chaos in belief. I did not know what was true anymore. And that's the moment viewers later. I read this book anymore farm just by mistake. It was a very short in the library. As like okay. I can finish the quickly. And doug ending that like last chapter why they could not see between the pigs and humans anymore that sentence. I understood everything what happened. I just made avid says to me. What happened to me my people and to my country yet there's There's so many things that could say about the book. Yeah there's a haunting nature to the end. And i guess spoiler alert. You should read this already into to this At the end they animals were looking to the and to pigs and it couldn't see the difference and then there's this kind of gradual transition from the initial revolutionary steps of animals fighting for their freedom to slowly The pigs gaining control went from four legs. Good two legs bad to forelegs. Good two legs better. I even better at things like that. They were so. They gradually transitioning the ideology under which the farm operates. And i think the gradual nature of that were basically have generations born knowing how things were in the past. And that's that's what makes the most kind of me haunting transitioned from freedom to slavery the suffering to injustice All those things and the animals don't know they're part of that and also me personally. I will always kind of found a kinship with boxer. The horse because i just kind of an idiot i just work really hard high and i just love the idea of working hard for an ideal and the tragic nature of to the end..

"And with the extra perspective on life love and freedom. You've gained since then i. It's a long story. So i was born in the northern part of north korea.

First century has no internet and they don't even know the existence of internet now only that we don't even have this twenty like twenty four electricity. So non knowing definitely helped.

"The following is a conversation with yanni park a north korean defector human rights activists and author of the book in order to live cook mentioned of our sponsors the campo gala games. Better help and aid sleep. Check them out in the description to support this podcast. Let me say a few words about north korea from nineteen ninety four to ninety eight north korea went through a famine mass starvation caused primarily by king jong il. Who at the time was the new leader of north korea after his father's death in nineteen ninety-four somewhere between six hundred thousand. Three million people died due to starvation from all the stories of feminine history including my own family history of come to understand that hunger tortures the human mind in a way that can break everything we stand for north korea during the nineties famine many were driven to cannibalism imagine more than ten million people suffering starvation for months and years always on the brink of death. We don't know the exact numbers of people who died because the suffering was done in silence and darkness very little information in or out. Most people had to survive without electricity without clean water medical supplies sanitation and food. The north korean propaganda machine called this the arduous march or the march suffering and words such as famine and hunger were banned because they implied government failure and once again now in twenty twenty one km joan on the current leader of north korea is calling for his country to prepare for another arduous march or march of suffering another period of mass starvation as the country closes its borders looking at atrocities of the past decades and the encroaching atrocity. There now i think about the quiet suffering of millions of north koreans. I think about the torture of the human spirit. I think about a north korean child who could be a scientist an artist a writer but who instead grows impossibly thin without food their body slowly rotting away as their parents watch helplessly. I got emotional in this conversation with you own me in part because i remembered my grandmother who.
