"Newspapers. Joining me down the line is alessio patalano professor at King's College London. Good morning to you alessio. Good morning Georgina. What's going on with the fuel prices in Singapore? So this is an interesting piece because it kind of like helps us putting in a broader context of broader perspective, the sort of energy challenges that certainly have been hit in the UK quite remarkably over the past few weeks. But it's really not just a UK phenomenon. And here we're talking about Singapore, the Singapore and economy relies entirely on imported energy, particularly with our natural gas. And what you're seeing happening in Singapore, which I'm sure for many in the audience who are familiar with the plays. It wasn't an energy demanding place, given the fact that a lot of the activities there really rely on that continuous power supply. And be also one of the most advanced if you won't realities in the broader in the Pacific region. It's quite remarkable that you've seen the article makes quite clear that smaller energy companies are going through a very difficult period of time because of the surge in the prices. Of a natural gas, there's a lot of concern among small and medium businesses in Singapore about how they will afford and they will continue to operate it throughout the winter. So it's very interesting piece because it tells us, you know, even down in Southeast Asia, where beyond the boundaries, if you want of the European context, the surgery in prices are creating quite a considerable earth shaking moment and if you want the world over. Talking of earth shaking moments, I'm sure he would like this to be regarded as such, former president Donald Trump has announced that he'll launch his own social media app and news company to complete with big tech tell us more. Exactly. So this has been announced over the last few hours really. And international headlines are starting to pick this one up. Here the independence has run a story about it. It's going to be called truth, which is irony. The irony of this. Exactly. Georgina, you start reading about it, and it really sort of gives you a chill down the spine because it very much resonates with all the sort of waters and concerns that the way in which the former president managed the truth when he was in power. So imagine having a platform on his own terms. Now, what is interesting is that the current plans is for a soft rollout. And then for a fully fledged sort of opening of this new platform next this spring. And what is interesting is really that you got a sense that he's going to be trying to get a sense of what sort of reactions will kind of space this platform can become. And it is also interesting. There is a perhaps an ideal point in time if you're someone like Trump to launch this type of activity, given all that we know of the growing douse and questions raised against the monopoly of some of the big social media taking particular Facebook. So he might very well find fertile grounds to launch this new operation. The consequences of which in more ways than ones at the moment are all but clear. But certainly will raise new important questions on what the truth is and how you manage it in contemporary societies. Absolutely and we'll be talking about all those problems Facebook is facing towards the end of the program. Very quick look now at the career Herald. Yes, so this is an interesting story because Korea has been South Korea has been a relatively burner when it comes to the launching of heavier satellites in orbit. And given the fact that over the past few weeks, we've had so much about the recent missile tests that North Korea was conducting. It's interesting that today what we are hearing about is not North Korea, but for ones is actually South Korea. It was launched, was going to be launching one of these rockets. This afternoon well, afternoon in Korea time anyway. And if successful really mark a very important point in South Korea joining that small club of countries that can launch the Javier satellites in space. Also suggesting that the commitment to the past few years in the South Koreans to develop the basic means and technology to join the capacity at the very least to increase their monitoring and surveillance activities in addition to one of the considerations and technology from space. At that moment is coming. And that moment is likely to be disaster noon. Alessio, thank you very much indeed. This is the globalist stay tuned. Well, it's time now to find out what's making headlines in the world of entertainment and the film critic Karen krishan of its joins me in the studio. And I'm so excited. I know. I know it's back at long last. We've only had to wait a whole pandemic. Oh, wait a minute, what am I saying? Yes, indeed. Are you a fan? Oh, I'm a huge fan. And you know what's really great for me is that it was coming up on the program today and so I could actually sit down and watch it without feeling guilty because I was doing my homework. Wonderful, wonderful. So what are your first impressions? Oh, I thought it was amazing. And do you know what I will never, ever forget the line from Kendall? Fuck the weather we're changing the cultural climate. That was just genius. And I think that's what's genius about it. It's the writing. It's Jesse Armstrong. The writing is incredible, actually. This series three written by Jesse Armstrong is the other tour. And they're loosely based on if you haven't watched Succession, you're missing out. It's loosely based on Murdoch, but also the redstones and mercers and Conrad black. These are global companies that have children tipped as the successors, but nobody's really been named yet. So this is what the fascination about succession is. I like to think of it as sort of dynasty without the shoulder pairs. But that's such an old reference room. Maybe The Sopranos without the nice stuff. You know, really, it is about family politics and corporate politics. And it is huge. It's a huge award winner. It's cleaned up at the Emmys last year. And also Logan Roy, the patriarch played by Brian Cox, won a Golden Globe for his performance last season. I'm just really not surprised. And you know, when you look at when you look back at Jesse Armstrong's work, at the other line that I will never forget that he wrote difficult lemon difficult. The one I like that was actually in the trailer and you can see it says, I'm better than you. You're corrupt evil. That's Kindle Roy played by Jeremy strong with Brian Cox's son, who in the first I don't want to spoil. I won't spoil anything in the series at the end of series two was exposing the company as being corrupt and his father as well. And the father goes, don't talk about things you don't understand. So he understands corruption and evil. Oh, good. Just a to people who do like Jesse Armstrong's writing. He's got a novel. Actually, it's been out for a while. I think it came out in 2016. It's called love sex and other foreign policy goals. And you can hear a conversation that I had with him about that book and about the rest of his work on our meet the writers archive. So do go and have a look at that. If you have a moment. Right. There are other things. Hardly. I mean, really, you know, we won't talk about the yazi strike and we won't talk about the box office, but we can talk about what do you want to talk about? How about David Chappelle and Chappelle? Yes, yes. Getting into a lot of hot water. Now Dave Chappelle of course is kind of taking over the mantle from George Carlin, long, long late lamented. As being the controversial comedian who can get away with a lot stuff. And his Netflix special to closer was called by a recent San Francisco report as exhausting transphobic can grievous grievous field rant exposed as a comedy. So anyway, Netflix has quite a few of Dave chapelle's comedy specials. And they actually fired a black trans employee who was helping to organize the walkout that happened last night..

"He wants it to me that if we if we went to burger king for my birthday it was an unbelievable treat like that you know if i remember rightly he wants told me that he made an investment very early on stop mock market and made a few hundred dollars himself a call and so the money was amazing to be able to to use his brain to climb out of poverty. That was amazing. I think in the early stages there is an aspect of the money and the ego and the designed to get recognized. That's powerful and i. I've seen that in my own korea that be on your very motivated by the desire for respect. Don't take you seriously will the people who didn't take you seriously you're like show them you know whether it's a parent or a professor or a boss or whatever i sometimes find literally out of this was thinking about the fact that my book has done well and suddenly like i can't believe that person didn't take me says you're like really i'm like fifty three and i'm i'm still beating. The drum paid units unbelievable. How that stuff kind of tugs at us. And it's very hard to get rid of but what i would say is i mean it helps. If you're aware of it. I think so so at least you know you know what these forces are. That are messing with your mind. And your but i i would say i look at these really successful. Investors brady about people who success has been enduring. I'm not ready about people who did really well over a seven year cycle of twelve years. I am looking at people who building credible enduring success as investors and. I would say to build enduring success. That has to be something more than your early. I think there are. Some people could just so ferocious and have such an endless need for acceptance and respect that. Maybe never leads them. But i'm not particularly interested in those people because they tend not admirable enjoy tend to be writing. I confess in book. Wannabe asynchronous of the book is that. I'm writing about people. I i like an admire so they tend to have a grand up puppets so one one thing that i do is i start the book. Maybe partly to address is concerned these on people with much wisdom or happiness that that just for patients money managers. I wanted to kind of preempt that judgment. So i stopped the book in india with a guy on Whose remarkable who in one thousand nine hundred four began this this dirty game where he decided he was going to turn a million dollars into a billion dollars by contacting twenty six percent a year and basically then is going to give all the money away and i start gunning into rural india with him to visit the schools where he's dragging these incredibly smart kids from very deep underprivileged families. He's dragging them out of poverty. And so what i was trying to say is. Yeah his this guy with this incredible Ability to sit quietly wait patiently for what munger calls mis-priced gamble and make enormous amounts of money. But he's actually using it to drag thousands of thousands of children out of poverty. So what i'm trying to say is the needs to be something beyond that. Desire for recognition and desire for recognition is very powerful powerful for me. It's a it's a big troll but it's very fragile. Signed in my own lights is the you can build a lot of success you maybe in your Searches these numbers ages. Very artificial. you'd build a lot of success through that energy like that old sex pistols songs..

"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.

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.

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.

Our first question is for mark levin and sad. We'd like you dr. Sebastian gorka to be our one responder mark. What is our greatest national security threat today. joe biden. i'm not cleaning. I am not kidding. The people he is surrounded himself with a disaster. He's got a secretary of defense that helped create the isis caliphate. He's got a sector stay. Who comes out of the ivy league. Schools really doesn't know a damn thing same with his national security adviser so when you look among those people it's absolutely a disaster.

Biden slips into political quicksand amid Haitian migrant buildup
"Starting off the show. Tonight we have a discussion about joe biden. Apparently he's doing more deportations than trump specifically deporting more asylum seekers than trump did well. Yeah we don't have the other categories of deportations as the numbers that That we came across. And it's a shocking number. I don't know the entire number. But i have here the us Moved over six thousand. Haitian asylum-seekers from the border at del rio so that's just haitian asylum-seekers just recently with you know the whip's did see that. Oh i saw that very scary stuff. There was ice agents. I guess they're ice. Sported patrol agents. Scroll on horseback whipping people catalyst. Yeah like cadillac. Wrangling them with whips and hitting them with the long whip. It looked incredibly frightening and in and scary to be in that situation with a bunch of armed men on horses attacking people who are just trying to escape the hellish life of living in haiti. And do you think the biden voters expected this to happen because the people on the left like biden love to position themselves as the friend of the immigrants they acted like trump was the worst for immigration and right immigration. I mean right. When joe biden got elected like somebody. I know got a deportation letter. Just and they're telling him oh. It's been a lot worse recently under biden. They told him that his friends sorry like his friends. That like is also a legal immigrant. Types may know some other people like that well according to the same place that you're looking here. It's says twitter account. Aj plus they're citing cnbc saying that biden is using what's called title forty two to expel asylum-seekers without a right to a hearing so you know what asylum is right. Yeah when you leave somewhere that is you're gonna die there or they're gonna put you in prison for the rest of your life or thereafter you for for whatever reason and the numbers here are just shocking. According to cnbc under trump and remember trump had four full years. And we're not even through year number one biden four hundred and forty th over four hundred. Forty thousand people were Were expelled under this title. Forty two during the trump administration and six hundred ninety thousand have been expelled under the biden administration under title forty two so that's a tremendous level of increase because if if biden is able to keep up the same amount over the next three years. Yeah he'd be like twenty four hundred weight. It was six hundred ninety thousand right now so yeah that'd be well over two million people well so you know that is just absolutely horrifying because these people if they are indeed being prosecuted or persecuted. They're going to be sent back to likely their deaths or likely to a prison cell. Yeah it's probably worse for you if you try to leave and then they find out about that absolutely it is. Let's see there's other story here from cnbc biden. Administration appeals judges order. This is from less than a week ago to stop. Expelling migrants under trump era pandemic policies. So there was a judge who said they need to stop using title forty. Two and biden is appealing so this is yet another example of how joe biden is more like trumpy than the trump haters thought. That trump was like people hated trump for all these different reasons and biden has continued trump's policies and crank them up. Yeah my friend. Sent me this weird video of biden today. It was him when he was younger. You know he. He's always been in government office. So i don't know what his title was at the time but he was being interviewed. Probably a senator or something. Yeah and he was saying he was saying. What do people think. I care more about bosnia than haiti because it's white people in bosnia and it's you know black people in haiti and then he just went on and said well if haiti sank into the ocean. I wouldn't care just like that was his answer to that was like what is that supposed to mean. Well i'll tell you clear what it means. It means he has no empathy right to say that about another an entire group of people living somewhere on the planet to say they just if they just all died one day he would have no concern whatsoever for that and you juxtapose that against what he says while he's running for office which is to make himself seem like this all caring. Oh the democrats we care about people that's clearly. Bs tel aviv From penn and teller thought he was going to heal us all with his love. Is that what taylor said. Y- you read that on the show. It was numbered teller's lider new saying let pendulum but tell her was going along with pen from what i could see. So presumably teller didn't disagree otherwise he wouldn't have been in the photo op. Yeah just mixed them up. Sorry according to the story here. Cnbc biden administration appealing. A judge's order to stop using a trump era pandemic policy that allows for the rapid expulsion of migrants without giving them a chance to apply for asylum. So they're using covert as the excuse. The departments for his just cove it. That's why we had to have horseback riders with the because of it. It's just you covered. The department of justice filed an appeal of district. Judge emmet sullivan's ruling thursday bars. The federal government from expelling migrants under the public health law known as title. Forty two sullivan. The ruling to go into effect in fourteen days the appeal is the latest move by the bided administration to address the twenty year high surge of migrants from mexico and central america crossing the border illegally which remains a political flashpoint between republicans and progressive democrats title forty two is first introduced by donald trump in march of twenty twenty over concerns about the corona virus pandemic. It gave the government the power to turn back any migrant caught crossing the border illegally regardless of their country of origin to supposedly stop cove nineteen. So if you had managed to escape from north korea and you made it to the united states which is no easy task. Mind you. it's one thing to get here from haiti or guatemala. Or duress or something. It's a whole other story to get here from north korea. But if he'd managed to and they caught. You did it cover. Nineteen you gotta go back to north korea and you back to north korea where you would certainly either be put into a hellish prison labor camp and then of course all your family members have probably already been put into a prison labor camp. Because that's what they that's how they roll over north korea. If you try to escape or you do something bad. They punish your whole family for it. So you know you're going to prison and it's going to be like the worst possible prison labor camp experience basically on the planet right now if they don't just go right ahead and just summarily execute you but this quote from a man at the border a haitian man with two children.

Trees Could Be a Mental, Physical and Climate Change Antidote
"Is well known. The trees help counter climate change by soaking up carbon dioxide. Now there is a growing body of research to point to many ways of dose of trees can improve our mental and physical health. Here's martha bebinger member station. W. b. you are on how and why the tiny sapling robin williams planted thirty years ago towers above her boston home. I raise this tree when i raised my children and look at this look at that. She says there's something about being near this tree. It makes everybody a little bit happy around here when you're looking for strength you can't do better than looking at a tree and there's evidence williams may will be gleaning any number of direct or associated health benefits a longer life. Bitter birth outcomes lower stress levels lower risk of heart disease. Dr howard lumpkin. Is it the university of washington school of public health. Lower risk of diabetes reduced symptoms of adhd proximity to trees is associated with a ridiculously broad range of health benefits. I wish we had pills. That were this good for health. A few countries notably japan and south korea have invested in a practice known as forest bathing which is spending time among trees as a preventive health measure but prescribing time in nature is still pretty far outside mainstream medicine in the. Us from can says that. Maybe because there's a lot we don't know what doses needed. Do you need to walk. Among trees is sufficient just to look at the trees from outside your window. Do you need big trees or do small trees do the trick we you know. We're not able to tease the forest from the trees. Peter james at harvard medical school aims to answer a lot of those questions. He's merging health data captured by phones. Real time surveys about wellbeing and mood and street. View mapping data to dig into. What's exactly within view. Is it trees. Is it flowers and how those things are related to help behaviors and health outcomes.

I just. I q much to talk about that. I can almost like talk Welcome welcome to the show. Welcome thanks guys. Thanks is so great evac back on with you guys. You know. I just first off. I want to say that this has been some kind of a ride for asian americans. You know There was a time when felt like we couldn't tell any story is truly not them the way we wanted them to and when we did they had to be a certain kind of story over just the last a three four years. We started more idiosyncratic and yet really masterful new kinds of of narrative exploring explaining and just giving experiences around very different ways of being asian american and blue by us is right up there In in that world of like the minorities so just wanted to give you props for that and maybe ask bit. What the origin story in some ways of of this film. Was you know what i mean. You know Being asian american we all know. Adopt these you know it's I'm sure we all know that. Adoption originated the idea of international. Adoption originated in south korea after the korean war. And you know the whole family went there and the kids off the streets or whatever the case that needed families place a nice christian families in the united states and over the years become a big business in and you can't tell an asian narrative that's inclusive without including that storyline Without including that experience in this in this country So you know i. I'm friends quite a few adoptees and and I've grown up with few. And i started hearing that this was taking place at adopted. These were being imported in. I thought it was absolutely shocking.
"korea" Discussed on Stuff They Don't Want You To Know Audio
"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.

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.

He added the food. You're going to have a cultural center of the world neck south korea. That's what they exactly do right. Same korea won't became more like eleventh largest economy.

We gave them different system. One is free democracy when a dictatorship and came up with the biggest different sort. And i think north korea reviews that to us is not because we are great that we are living in this prosperity free market. The ideas gave us this. The system revert. Our answer spirit gave us. 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. It doesn't matter even if you're smart it that's all irrelevant. And i think that's why people just keep denying that they will not your special. Because i'm awesome. I got this. I know it's not you you got this. And when people said i hate kept as we reduc capitalism. How do you came up with this thing. Digitally how did you come on with this.

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. Six million north korea with a tiny country the forest largest armies in the world so this country designed to five their own citizens and the army the fourth largest in the world is designed to basically fight its own people oppressor on people. That's what north korea mattress is about. Okay let me As you some aspects about north korea life who can described the song bond system of ascribed status used in north korea. Yeah so that's a very interesting right right now. There are a lot of people playing this ideology of like democratic socialism. Socialism comments water recall marxism-leninism. Ray they have all like this similar features where we give collective power to certain entity and they make the decision for the bigger right and north korea came. We'd idea the cumulus song he was the leninist marxist say i'm going to create the most equal society on human face so it was a communist north korea and then they came up with his homework. Winds is like family casas them. Three categories warrior wavering. An hostile and that in building three classes they divide into fifteen different classes so a lot.

You're using like how heartless you are selling your own children to and as a six year slave they were culture seven ten years old but that was the only way for her to save her children. And if she didn't serve me that they would be dead right now so. I'm grateful that she sort me and i think that's the thing is a live is so crazy you cannot. Judge is is so complex and yet that's how she changed in my life by selling. She saw my mom and myself into dozen seven to china. You're grateful for the grateful for that suffering. of course. I am great because the alternative is worse. I would not be here with you. you'll never knew. Would you make of the other suffering in the world today. The people there north korea. So that is part of the year of your. Life's work is helping those people. Would you think about them. What should people know about them. I think that's when i get angry. I ride thinking about them mike. I knew anger directed at at the nestle. People the ignorance so people hike. So when i got on those career going to all of them and i went to south korea. One day i was watching television. And this like a famous korean k pop stars and kwang and do some fundraising concert. And i literally thought as oh my. Gosh something is going wrong in this country. Why are dispute crying. It was cheery like campaign and then later was showing was animal rights campaign to helping out cads puppies in shelters. Do you not buddy has their. Here's like that tone other human being right now. I cannot right. People rather give a million dollars to save some dolphins then saving children my not being raped in china and i think i love in moscow. Rather i love this people wanna like go. The moon mars and people told him like. Yeah you went. We went to the moon. Like i did not know in north korea but think that's love says Why there's not. Even one single human reduc kind of brilliance in their brain they. They can't save so much suffering but nobody does anything. I think that's been ni- i heart. Fine hoping humanity. And that's when. I guess of think about even biden or trump obama. Did he know what's happening. North korea exactly my life photos. There's public executions.

"There's no alternative for them to compare even and as i my grandmother knew. Why did they not do anything about and they were scared. They kept aside and and everybody was responsible for the people who knew who too afraid to say. And then there's people that just didn't even know and i don't know what's more terrifying about human nature looking at this group of people who are afraid to say that things could be otherwise and then the group of people that don't even know could be better now. It's I don't know that that's the reason i returned that book often. Because it's such maybe because it's interesting using animals to represent ideas that were very human. It almost allows you to explore the darkness of human nature without sort of being broken by. So you mentioned anger when i watch your interviews. You're really calm and collected. I just hear interviews. You know instagram. The way you present yourself you I don't know it seems like you. Almost a peace with the world Is there in private times. When you're just angry do feel fear deep. Dark places depression. All those kinds of things are. Are you able to put that world that you're in behind you. It's a joke. Because i talk on. North korea every single day and ice to rescue people like from china and russia and other countries right as sometimes our rescue mission fares and they captured him back. I should have a people in north korea. Report to me. So i when i talked to my sister who chose to not be in this life activists life. She forgot most of things. And i for the other hand like remember everything so sometimes it's a. It's a blessing to keep reminded of how it's nowadays aac happiness relatively thing it is. Sometimes i mean the thing is or super because nobody was joined. When you're going up everybody was suffering. You should happen okay.

"I mean like you know. Whenever i think about my north korea interesting is there's no color i mean. One is because north korean can. She has no color right. Most of the things on paved and trees or cut down be have no fear so people cut down trees to make food so but only that like even while we are wearing was like no collar. 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. Kim zora dictators and south korea is now colonized by american busters in america's first of all not pastors goop people..

I literally the hermit kingdom but i thought i believe that i was living in the best country on earth. It was a socialist paradise and everybody in the rest of the words worshiped him idea leader and there was nothing to envy for me so i had this enormous pride in my heart and guay for to be in. That country was loved the leader. Not fear for mia list. It was yeah. It was the migration and gratitude. It changed the lately but for me was pure pure like love. Was there any like looking back with the perspective of now. Would you describe some of those moments growing up as full of happiness or was that delusion at the time so not knowing the alternative.

"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.

"Marco Werman. This is the world. Thanks for joining us on this. This Christmas Eve as we've been reporting this week. North Korea has sent a warning that it might be preparing an unwelcome Christmas gift for the United States. Today President Donald Trump was asked just about that he was at his mar-a-lago resort in Palm Beach Florida and he appeared to brush away the concern. That's okay we'll find out but the surprises and we'll deal with it versus excessively. Let's see what happens. Everybody's got surprises. But let's see what happens. I handle them as they come along. So how did we get to this point with North North Korea. Here's the world's Chris Wolf. You could say that. Donald trump inherited a pre existing condition from Barack Obama. George Chair tag twin. Either way you'll get yours in two thousand sixteen North Korean television announced on a hydrogen bomb test the H. Bomb of course can destroy entire cities. He's North Korea was also perfecting missiles to reach the United States. Jeffrey Lewis a professor at the Middlebury Institute of International Affairs in Monterey says this would have presented a huge challenge for any incoming administration an adversary of the United States had not acquired the ability to hit the US with nuclear weapon. Since China did more than thirty years years ago Obama ramped up sanctions against North Korea but Donald Trump put them into overdrive sung. Yoon Lee teaches Korean. Affairs at the Fletcher School at Tufts University. You throughout two thousand seventeen. The trump administration did the right thing in that for the first time in history. The United States tried to galvanize the international community to put maximum financial pressure on North Korea. Trump's maximum pressure policy also included threats of more severe consequences North Korea Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury life. The world has never seen but North Korea responded in kind that were more missile tests and more gushing on North Korean television into doing Nicole Nago movie on TV and John Twenty Seventeen.

"Korea. I think overall he had a very good flow a good plan of how to lay out the the speech. And as we've been saying, the really it all comes after this. What happens after who is going to stick to their word? And will there be this kind of sense of can we work together? Can we get stuff achieved? Right. And it's history is really any indication we've seen the president gives to its first state of the union speech was actually a fate of the union address to congress last year. We saw a state of the union speech this year. We're seeing the speech, and like I said the onset there is sort of a difference between President Trump when he's speaking the teleprompter via a pizza. His advisors have crafted for weeks and months versus what he is actually thinking and saying, and if history is any indication, I think we can expect to see a lot of that rhetoric change very quickly just because he founded policy like there was that policy. I mean things can change with this White House at the drop the hat just earlier T was knocking Democrats on their border security negotiations trying to satisfy him in terms of finding funding for some sort of barrier along the US Mexico border. So I think we can expect to see a return to that. But on some of the points that he made like you mentioned the pledge to address HIV issues infrastructure, a childhood cancer, some of these issues, I think definitely did bipartisan support and they will going forward. Criminal Justice was another big one fat received support from both sides of that criminal Justice package earlier, I believe late last year was passed by partisan support. So those issues definitely do get support from both sides of the aisle. But in terms of keeping a quarter of the government opened in less than two weeks. And what happens with that? I think still remains to be seen. I just need to throw this in there. I think the most lighthearted moment of the whole thing was when everybody's saying happy birthday to. One of the survivors of the tree of life synagogue attack. He's also a holocaust survivor today is Judas eighty first birthday..

"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..
