How Fragile Is China Today? David Goldman Explains

"Fragile is China today? Demographically, especially after the decades of the one child rule. Is it a paper Tiger or can it overcome its internal limitations demographically? Well, it is fragile, but I don't think it's doomed. China took a population of poor farmers who had lots of kids, moved them to cities where the average person has 35 m² of living space, turned them into a modern country with very few children. As a result, their aging very quickly, their aging about as fast as Germany, not as not as fast as say either Japan or Korea or Taiwan. But ultimately, that's a crisis for them. The belt and road initiative. Has the purpose of requiring into the Chinese economy dozens of countries with lots of young people. If you don't have enough babies, you can do two things. One is you can get immigrants to come to you, young people, the other thing is you can export your capital to where there are young people and get them to work for you. So just in the past two years, China's exports to the global south have doubled.

"Secular fanaticism is the curse of 20th and 21st centuries. These people are fanatics. The mansion deal he calls it the bench and deal. Features massive new subsidies for solar and wind over the next few years, massive is correct. Plus tens of billions of dollars in other handouts designed to dramatically increase the percentage of these unreliable sources of energy on our grid. Number two, it aggressively restrict fossil fuels. It includes among other things new taxes on oil and gas. And worse of all, granting the Biden EPA essentially unlimited power, I don't understand that. Didn't think Supreme Court just ruled. Oh, but Congress can make a law. Well, they can make a lot of Supreme Court. It'll be going to court. Well, by the time it goes to court, everything will be shut down that matters. Essentially unlimited power to restrict fossil fuel projects. It gives billions of dollars to the left wing causes it includes billions for undefined environmental justice. Prager rule number 36. Whenever justice gets an adjective, it's not justice. Social justice is nothing to do with justice, environmental justice has nothing to do with justice. Racial justice has nothing to do with justice. Just know that. And you will begin to understand the double talk. You are willing and language of the left. There's justice, and there's injustice. Just like when you add a word to democracy, like people's democracy, it's a bad sign. North Korea, a gigantic concentration camp. Is the people's democratic republic of Korea. People's democratic. Okay. The White House commission report is an extreme environmental justice is an extreme left wing wish list. That says we must quote sunset investments by 2030. That is just 8 years from now. In fossil fuels plastics and are you ready? This proves that they're fanatics and lawyers. The environmentalist world. And nuclear power. It actually says we must sunset investment in nuclear power. They don't give a damn about carbon emissions, but give a damn about destroying the society we live in. Environmentalism is to the environment what communism was through workers. The great Green New Deal gives government limitless corruption inducing power. The deal itself has tens of billions that bureaucrats can allocate arbitrarily. Tens of billions.

Why Harry Truman Refused to Drop the Atomic Bomb

"I love the conversational style that Truman uses here. He says, now once in a while, I'll get a letter from some impatient person asking, why don't we get it over with? Why don't we issue an ultimatum make all out war drop the atomic bomb? And for most Americans, the answer is quite simple. We're not made that way. We're a moral people, pieces are gold with justice and freedom. We can not of our very free will violate the principles that we are striving to defend. The whole purpose of what we're doing to prevent World War three, starting a war is no way to make peace. An interesting point of view there because, again, he viewed the involvement in Korea. He viewed the involvement of the use or non use of the atomic bomb, was that they were trying to avoid a war. And at this point in time, the lord had lived with the world he lived 8 years without any kind of other nuclear devices being used, atomic device being used, and he viewed that as a success. Now he also was very adamant in saying that, look, using these devices would end the Cold War. It would end the communists with me, but it also end hours as well. He understood that the forming doctrine of mutually assured destruction and that was what was coming on.

Jack Posobiec Shares the Latest on the Assassination of Shinzo Abe

"Jack, welcome back to the program. You know, Charlie, we were just looking at that ourselves, and I was thinking that, you know, it turns out that Orlando is only about an hour and a half drive from there. So we're looking at obviously we're an east coast here on D.C.. So we might end up having to go just because the costs were so crazy because we want to bring the family. We want to bring the kids. We might end up flying into Orlando and then driving over to Tampa. Yeah, it's no joke, almost a $1000 a person from certain markets if you get a nonstop flight. It's unbelievable. Thanks Joe Biden. Thank you precisely. So Jack, the assassination of Abe is something that the media has just not really covered very much post the initial shock and awe, who did it and what are we missing in regards to this story? Well, so there's this individual who did it by the name of tetsuya. And he seems, as far as we can tell, the police are saying the Japanese police are saying that he confessed to them. Apparently because his mother was full, was joined one of these sort of like Christian offshoot cult organizations. There's a lot of these that operate throughout Japan and South Korea. She had been donating so much of her money to this thing that it turns out that they didn't have any money then to inherit or for him to inherit as, as her son, and so this guy went completely nuts, then starts building guns in his home. Keep in mind, there's something that people, I think, for the Charlie Kirk show, will want to know that the private ownership of firearms in Japan is strictly regulated. You do not have them. This is not something that's heard of in Japan that people just go out and get fired. It's certainly not the United States. It's not even Europe in terms of that. And so the issue then becomes he builds these things in his home and then decides to go kill Abe because he believes that Abe has some connection to this group and then goes walks up right behind him with what appears to be, right? You know, sort of homemade sort of shotgun. And I was able to use that to shoot him in the back. Yeah, so

And to help us unpack that, someone who I really enjoy having on, the author of the bodies of others, the new authoritarians COVID-19, and the war against the human, the author of which is doctor Naomi wolf, doctor welcome back to the program. Thank you so much, Charlie. It's really great to talk to you. Please call me Naomi. Naomi, thank you for joining us again. So give us your thoughts here, nihilism, mixed with these incredibly, let's say, powerful pharmacological compounds such as SSRIs and benzodiazepines, zoloft and Xanax, and how we are over prescribing them to our nation's youth, the latest study shows that 12 to 13% of our nation's young people are on some form of psychiatric drugs. What is the potential downside of that? What are your thoughts? Yeah, well, just, you know, I have to always start conversations like this by warning that I'm not a medical doctor. That said, I've written three. Non fiction books about health issues about the pharmaceutical industry. And I'm a mom and a step mom. And I really agree with you about your concerns. First, what I would say is we've imposed on children and teenagers in young adults in the last two years. Circumstances that the bodies of others points out are guaranteed to cause mental illness to cause anxiety to cause depression. And to cause other kinds of stress is that young adults have never been subjected to really in the history of human beings. Outside of places like North Korea or the Warsaw ghetto. And what I mean is this, just in the last two years, we isolated young adults. We isolated teenagers. We kept them at home, you know, chained to computers. We didn't let them go to school. We sent them home from university. Even now and the bodies of others starts with, and I've written about this a lot, you know, starting with my book in 2008, the end of America, which looked at the effect of isolation on political prisoners. You're not allowed to keep political prisoners isolated. You're not allowed to keep prisoners isolated or in solitary confinement for long, even one day of isolation causes permanent changes in the brain. And can cause mental illness and psychosis. So we, to my astonishment, at places like Ivy League universities, major state universities, kids who test young adults who test positive for COVID and these PCR tests are full of problems as I point out as well. They're isolated for up to a week alone in their rooms with not allowed to be outside with other young

Listen to business wars on Amazon music, Apple podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. Listen one week early and ad free by joining wondery plus in Apple podcasts or the wondery app. I feel like there's this really interesting tension here where North Korea is obviously an isolated country. And as you wrote in one of your papers, the U.S. seems to have sort of underestimated their cyber capabilities, maybe because of that. How did they get so good at hacking? I still think that China and Russia tend to dominate the cybersecurity field because their attacks tend to focus on espionage, ceiling information, sealing government secrets, military secrets in terms of the U.S., whereas we're looking internationally, North Korea presents a major threat in the cyber realta South Korea because they target their banks just as much as they're targeting the government. Jason says, one way North Korea got so good at hacking is by drilling its people over and over again for years. And then, by training them to look for human weakness. Essentially, tricking people through socials so that can be emails, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, where they pretend to be someone that they're not. They have some type of infected link or file that they trick you to download. And even if a company has a hundred very cyber hygienic employees and if 99% of them don't click on a bad link, but one does, then that's it. It can be compromised and only takes one person. So North Korea successful at this because they rely on human error. And the majority of North Korean cyberattacks and cyber intrusions that we're able to track shows that they use social engineering as their main way of getting into the targeted network. That's something Jason saw when he analyzed three big hacks on cryptocurrency exchanges over the past few years. Exchanges are the central platforms where people buy and sell cryptocurrency. That makes them an appealing target for hackers. So the majority of these attacks started with a phishing email. We did see an increase in our sophistication. We saw one email where they didn't just create a very legitimate looking signature, but they also created a fake website and fake social media accounts for the people that were allegedly working at that company. Even if you were to do your due diligence and try to Google them or Facebook stock them, they would come up as seemingly legitimate people. Something else that we saw within the actual laundering. So after the hack, is that North Korea seemed to focus more on speed than modification. And by application, I mean, hiding their tracks. So typically, when a hacker wants to steal money, they never want to be found. So they use many different techniques to hide their addresses or the origin of where the funds are going. There's many different techniques and tactics they could use to make it hard to figure out who is who when did this happen, how does this happen where is it going? North Korea seems to put just enough energy and resources into having that hidden trail long enough for the money today and go into their hands or go into a jurisdiction that maybe doesn't comply by general or standard legal laws in terms of laundering. And then they don't really care about attribution afterwards because even if we find out it's North Korea weeks later, it's weeks, it's weeks later. So the money is gone. Whether it's all of the 600 million, we don't know, but it's gone. And for a country like North Korea, even a small amount of that is beneficial. And something else about that is with the attribution factor is that even if we're able to prove its North Korea at an early time, chances are, we're not going to be able to ever charge them. There has been very limited cases of the U.S. or other countries being able to extradite North Korean hackers of criminals to charge them for their crimes. I want to break this down as accessible language as possible because I think it's confusing to people who confusing to me and I have some familiarity with crypto. When you hack a cryptocurrency exchange, what exactly are you doing and how are they getting the money? Because people tend to hold their crypto in a so called crypto wallet, right? That tells them how much they've got. So what the heck are going after? So that's a very important distinction. They're not hacking cryptocurrency itself. I think there's a lot of language in people talk about crypto hacks and they're hacking crypto. They're not necessarily hacking cryptocurrency itself. It's the exchange, especially in the case of North Korea. And this tends to be through email phishing campaigns. And what these malware is that North Korea puts out tends to be our Trojan or these kind of backdoor viruses that then allow them to take control of a device or a network system. And when they do that, then they can go in and they can find the private keys that can give them access to these crypto wallets. And then that's how the naked steal the funds from there. So they're mainly targeting the cryptocurrency exchange, not the individuals. Because if you target the individual, then you only have access to that person's, if you have the keys, then you only have access to that person's wallet, not someone else's. But if you target the exchange as a whole, and you're able to compromise and take control of the entire network, and if you're able to get the keys, then.

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,.

But one of my memories special memories of jeju island is the henio, which is the sea woman and they catch seafood for a living with only a knife while holding their breath. Some pretty much 80 years plus and they free dive down to 30 feet from minutes depending on their experience. And you can still see some of these we call them C mermaids at work and learn about their history and culture in the hernia museum on jeju island. For me, this was one of the most memorable experiences in Korea. It sounds wonderful. I will have to definitely go back to that that reminds me of the pearl divers, Japan, you know, there are other women who do this. It's amazing. How long do you think they can go under the water? I am not too sure how long, but I know when I was there, I pretty much experienced one over ten minutes. Well, that sounds fantastic. Thank you so much.

"And you can enjoy some of the best freshest seafood here in the world. Lobster, swim fish, you name it. Any seafood, you can think of. So I know when I went there, I noticed a village that was on the cliff, and it came down to the sea. It kind of reminded me of Santorini in Greece. That's very lovely to walk. Is the name of that game? Cultural village. And that was another one. A gem in Busan. And that's a tiered residential community built up the side of the mountain and Lea you're right. It's a work of art with astonishing colors and views. Tell me about jeonju, the historic. Okay, young Jew is the smallest city near Busan, but a definite highlight. Especially for those interested in Korean ancient history, the art and the architecture. This is where my favorite UNESCO site is the blue book's temple. Tell us about it. Okay, so this is where my favorite UNESCO site will cook the template is located. It's also where travelers come and visit some of the moon's ancient royal burial tools. Interesting. How far back do they go? Do you know? Way back. Yes, yes. Okay, so if you want to get out to a national park as a Yosemite of Korea, Korea's first national park, it has over 1500 animal species over a thousand kinds of plants, and I remember those two Buddhist temples inside the park. One is the temple of a hundred pools because there are ponds all around it. And then a cable car will take you up the mountain. It's about four hours from Seoul by bus or three hours by car. It's really a beautiful outside setting. And I highly recommend it. Let's go to the DMZ. Everybody knows about that. It's a demilitarized zone, the border between North and South Korea. It's heavily guarded and the area is about four kilometers wide. The closest town is panmunjom. I can talk about it because I was there, so I could just tell them, we would talk about in the north, we see a boundaries with North Korea, which is separated by the military zone. So I went to the DMZ. It's not a long drive from downtown soul. And they have tours and they take you around to a gift shop and a conference room, which straddles the military demarcation line. And then there are tunnels underneath where you can visit. And you can step over the border into North Korea inside a room called the cross border room. So it was very interesting, but what was most interesting to me was while we were there and we were in the bus and we were going to one of the sites, people came into the bus very quickly and said you've got to leave. You must leave right now. But it is something that I recommend if you like history because you do feel the history of the Korean War and feel how close the two countries the two areas are to each other. Patrice, what are some Korean foods to be sure to eat? Oh, I could list a whole lot of Korean food because the food in South Korea is so incredible and unique..

"Four observation texts. One of which has a rotating restaurant. Is that namsan park there, which you can hike? It was very surprising because in the middle of this very modern metropolis is a miles and miles of hiking trails. And this gorgeous, again, a view of the area. It was quite a surprise to go there. That's correct. Yes. Let me just ask you a little bit more about the palaces, which you mentioned in the beginning. There are 5 of them. The changing of the guard, tell me about that, which where is that in regard to? That's that one is palace, which is considered the largest palace of all. There are certain times of the week when you can go and visit the palace and experience the changing of the guards. And this is this is one of the experiences that you should not miss. We were at a hotel that overlooked it. And so we could see it from above, and it was quite something from that angle as well. But again, it's something many people don't realize that if you time it right, you can not only go to the palaces and go to the gardens and the most beautiful old buildings and there's a museum and all kinds of wonderful history. And then you can see a changing of the guard as well. It's quite a nice afternoon to spend in Seoul. Yes. And I always say that Leah, where else can you leave your hotel and step right into a palace? Well, not bad. Not bad at all. Now let me ask you, soul is the hub of Korea, but tell us about some of the places we should visit further outside the capitol. Well, definitely Busan, Busan is the largest sports city and is home of let's say a majestic mountains, white sand beaches, including Hyundai and guangxi beach. And not to show, you know, many people know this, but the beaches in Busan are amazing..

South Korea is famous for kimchi K pop K dramas tech giant Samsung, automotive manufacturer Hyundai Korean fried chicken, Korean barbecue and Gangnam style, but there's so much more.

And of course, as the DMZ, no man's land, part of a military border between North and South Korea. Countries, technically still at war. But we'll just refer to South Korea where people can visit. As Korea, the Korean Peninsula is an East Asia, and the southern half is generally green, Hillary countryside dotted with cherry trees and centuries old Buddhist temples, plus coastal fishing villages, subtropical islands and high-tech cities, such as soul, the capital.

"Story right. Yeah it was. It was absolutely north korea. Doing these cyber attacks against sony. We're not saying it wasn't but we are saying that's a heck of a leap to make. And there were credible very credible people saying that. It absolutely wasn't north korea. So you know you. Just i just have to open. Open your third high. Maybe i don't know. I can't i don't know how you figure out what's true or not these days so we do know that with that being said with that wheelbarrow salt poured onto of All these stories. You hear from north korea about north korea. We do know that some of the crazier stories are true because as we said at the top. We have our friend. Kenji fujimoto who is able to confirm some and then we have some Some good firsthand reports here. So what's what's one crazy story all right. Well you are going to have to elaborate on this one for me. But i remember hearing a story about a rabbit breeding program. That didn't go very or they're there. It's a very large species of rabbit That i guess. North korea wanted to have a small population of them in order to breed them. Yes yes it's true uh-huh so in in a guest two thousand seven or so. Twelve giant rabbits were delivered to north korea. the breeder who sent them Found he thought they were going to be used to make a rabbit farm but he suspected that they were eaten by the top officials Berlin north korean embassy denied the allegations. But you can read some more about this in spiel on the online. The the german Journalism this is an article by david. 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. It comes from environmental factors like nutrition teacher tickets now. Daytime stayed at our iheartradio music festival presented by samsung galaxy as the eighteenth at area. Fifteen las vegas.

This is one of the craziest stories. starvation yes been starvation in food. Insecurity in general is a huge issue north korea. It's a life threatening issue. 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.

"And i'm ben and today i think we should get started with a little anecdote that been has sure All right so once upon a time. There was a man named kenji fujii moved to. Kenji was a chef. Kenji was a sushi chef to be specific and he was quite good at his job but he was also a member of the union of sushi chefs and when he was young adventurous man. They made him a candidate for a mysterious job overseas. Now the rules of the union said. Kenji had to accept this job before he knew exactly what the assignment was. And that is how. Kenji fujimoto became the sushi chef for kim jong il. The leader at the time of north korea will overweight. Kenji confirms so many of the stories that we are going to talk about today. Especially regarding kim jong il we don't want to spoil the surprise but we will say That he had a seven hundred thousand dollar a year cognac habit. How do you consume that much. Cognac i you know i don't know i assume it wasn't all him for everybody that he around. Yeah this it's like ordering cheese dip for the table at all time at all times. Cognac and let that serve as an introduction. Lease gentlemen your in the right place. We hope here you are again with matt. Ben super producer knoll. The madman brown. And that makes this stuff. They don't want you to know today matt. Finally we're exploring north korea. That's right we're getting deep into the dprk. I'm excited about this ben. This is fascinating from so many angles to me at least personally and we certainly hope that you find it interesting as well Let's get started with looking at some of the history in how north korea was first formed. Because it's a fairly recently formed country right. Oh yeah you only have to go back to nineteen forty five at the close or just right at the close of world war two when korea the i guess the if you look at it as a large state together at the peninsula. It was divided up at the thirty eighth parallel by the united states. And the soviet union to forces that were embattled in the on the korean peninsula. And it's called i said the. Dprk you might not know this. You might already know this. But north korea is officially called the democratic people's republic of korea and It was officially established on the ninth of september nineteen forty eight and as students of history no during world for to the allied parties. Were definitely not the friendly parties. It was more of an enemy of my enemy kind of deal so there was already this tense situation between The united states in the us says are about a which competing ideology would would rule the world. Not in less if if you are familiar with One one of your favorite things at the high galleon a dialect right then. Maybe that's a little bit of a false dichotomy but that's a different show. Here's the point. The point is that tensions were high on the peninsula and people knew on both sides that this would be a A flash point and it eventually escalated. It did just a few years later from forty eight to nineteen fifty. It escalated into the korean war which lasted from nineteen fifty to nineteen fifty three. What kind of war was well. I guess it was somewhat of a civil war between the two koreas because really there they would be one unified korea much and his populist yes along by we think and i think history has shown that it was much more of what we would call a proxy war between these two opposing sides. But we we have a video on this but for people who haven't seen the video. What is a proxy war. It's win to let's say superpowers. Okay have competing interests in one area and rather than sending their army at least as a whole Or their military as a whole go fight there they will use. Let's say the indigenous people of that area or groups that are closely related that you might be able to exert some control over and have them fight that battle and then maybe you can sprinkle in a little bit a little bit of your military height as well so to help them out similar to. What's go- what's happened in afghanistan in the nineteen eighties. Right very similar. Which you can. You can see more about or alluded to in that. Show the americans them. Which if you enjoy espionage we recommend in fact. The korean war was the first armed conflict of the cold war. Yeah scary stuff but what happened when the fighting ended because this is this is something that a lot of people don't know there's a very important point here will be one of the biggest important points. Are the number of people killed over. A million people were killed during this conflict. Nudges soldiers civilians as well. This was so many civilians and one of the biggest facts that will lead into a reasoning behind a lot of the stuff. We're going to talk about. Is that almost every single. Large especially important building in north korea was completely destroyed specifically by but the us army right the us air force. Oh yeah sorry well. The army wasn't there it's true but ye- yeah so at at the close of this war after this this massive toll in terms of property and human life The sides of the conflict created an armistice in this armistice included a lot of things but it was missing perhaps the most important.

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.

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.

So it's Interesting memory to look back fashion of noticed from sort of You now you're. You're quite incredible sense of fashion. So contrast that with your time in north korea how do you remember fashion just or ways that people could express themselves. Visually was it all bland. There was no word for fashion in wisconsin. We didn't even know it was ninety nine dictionary so of course i did not know why. Victoria's secret models will. I didn't even know what motors were. So when i came out i learned. The motor was a job. And i quote is that and i'm still confused so there's so many jobs that we have here doesn't exist in north korea. What was life like. In nine north korea's compared to the rest of the world may be said. There's no internet a twenty four hour. Electricity is a luxury. Do not have what about food. What about water. What about basic human rights stink. That's the thing like when people were asking me. Can you tell me about like life in north korea and in the past i was like i cannot describe it to you and initially the old because of my english that i cannot find. Words is not as different. Plant the common sense that we have doesn't exist there. They people literally to not know the concept of love or human rights or liberty. So when i'm thinking back to my country it's You know like as you cannot imagine your life on mars right now. It's a that kind of difference. I grew up. Never seen the map of the word. I never knew that was asian. Like the regime. Told me that i was kim song loafers kim race and then our calendar doesn't begin when jesus christ was born our can begin. Kim's was born so we and history was forgotten to us. They didn't teach us about of course christianity or like the big bang they. Our history began chemo's born so everything was forgotten to us and it was a different meaning. Mean feeling of agents you know. It's not even like same life. I literally think that was in my past life and is a new life that ibm. You're almost different human being i absolutely. Yeah so you've had to say. I often say that my favorite book is animal farm by george orwell. I've read it. I don't know how many times hensel. I was really happy to hear that. That was Of the many books excellent books they will hopefully talk about. You mentioned that an animal animal farm had a big impact on you. It was the book that kind of Led to a kind of awakening for you. Maybe can you describe what impact ahead. So after going through what i went through and i arrived in south korea after many years of journey. They were saying so.

" korea" Discussed on Ridiculous History

"They put out a magazine called fortunes favorites. That depicted the American smiling ear to ear Marley, the joyous benefits of life of the DPRK, and they had things they had different segments or columns. One was called letters from apps sheer and Dresnik titled to the American soldiers south of the DMZ and. Got a quotation here. Dear old fella, France. Enjoy wome. Welcome from the North Korean people. I put off the disgust in GI uniform and visited Yang Yang and other cities villages to to tell the truth. The people in North Korea on joy and freedom and happiness inaccessible to the work and people to the United States now. Please don't be victim for the Wall Street, but for your withdrawal from South Korea. Now, I mean, it sure sounds like we mentioned this a little bit. But all of these gentlemen, experienced very similar degree of indoctrination, and they were forced to like they weren't fed properly. They were basically forced to memorize this these core principles, and I don't know enough enough time, I selected an alone. And I think weren't some of them forced to live together and kind of pitted against each other in some kind of weird hunger games, e kind of scenario. Yeah. App. Shearim perish to live together Jenkins and dress knock also had to share a home while they were teaching English military kademi. And this that excerpt that excerpted just read is clearly not written by these guys start rent by Dressler your accent was so convincing. Ben. Thank you. That's because he did have an accent to still I think up tune tool his death had trace of his rural north Carolinian accent. But what we see when we look at the way North Korea treated, these defectors is very similar to what we see when people are indoctrinated in cults, one of the big things that every cult does is to bombar people with information. It can be senseless. It can have its own internal logic. The point is to remove the possibility of asking questions just make people memorize and recite things, and then it's very clever about putting them in homes and kind of pitting them against each other. Yeah. Is it? It makes it much more likely for them to accept their forced marriages because when they were forced to marry other kidnapped people often from Japan or something it was entirely assumed by the government that these couples would reproduce. And then they could use the quote unquote is not a phrase, we're using the use the quote unquote, ethnically ambiguous children as spots. They can blend in you know, what I mean? Absolutely. And I think it's interesting that you talk about the kidnapping aspect of this because this is a really interesting gray area to me kind of where it's like they are submitting themselves to this. They made the choice either drunkenly or with some ideological kind of bent to cross that DMZ into this other country, and you know, toss off their the trappings of being an American, but they also probably didn't fully what they were signing up for. And then they were basically thrown into this indoctrination factor, you know, and four. To live in sub human conditions and turned into something that they were not when they made that choice. So you know, what I mean, it's sort of like a weird. It was almost like a Stockholm syndrome kind of thing. Yeah. Absolutely. In some like the case of James Dresner. He died happily in North Korea and twenty sixteen he was unrepentant he profess support for communism. He was the last living American defector in North Korea is also got the nickname comrade Joe DPRK. Because again, he's a celebrity who's featured in film called crossing the line at South Korea's Pusan international film festival, and he says he feels at home in the film. He never regretted going to Korea. He seems very sincere about it. He says his life is better because he defected and by North Korean standards. His life was pretty good, but you can tell the lack of medical and dental care took a toll on him. Frontiers. Are missing is that something that he acquired from North Korea like from violence or fall out? He also had a heavy heavy drinking and smoking habits. And so it's a toll on him..
