The growing portion of the populace wishing for state-sponsored censorship, ballistic weaponry confiscation, and a surveillance state to protect them from evil should be sent to North Korea Korea to experience what that's like.

Recent events over the last few years are leading to a growing, vocal minority that are wishing for the governments of the world to protect the people by covering up information, checking in on everyone, and implementing gun control policies that go beyond the general idea of common sense gun control.

If people want to live on a world where their ideas and rights can be taken away from them at a whim by the Government in the name of preventing evil, they should be sent to authoritarian countries like north Korea to live out the future they want. Censorship of media you don't like because you deem it "scary" is awful and should me avoided. All censorship does is drive the more vitriolic to seek it with more fervor and thus drive them more towards extremism as they feel they are being shut down.

Censorship and a nanny state is bad Vote Tulsi

Interview: Andrei Lankov on the real North Korea (Korea and the World)

Hello /r/northkorea !

Two fellow graduate students from Seoul National University and I have launched a new podcast: "Korea and the World". We interview academics in South Korea on current political, economic and societal issues.

For our first episode we interviewed Andrei Lankov on the changes taking place in North Korea right now. We talked about his own experience in Pyongyang, the inaccurate depiction of the country in foreign media, and the political and economic situation in North Korea.

You can listen to our podcast directly on our website "Korea and the World - Andrei Lankov" and subscribe on iTunes or via RSS. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

We hope you'll enjoy listening to Prof. Lankov's interview. Do not hesitate to comment or ask questions. Thanks for your support!

I don't think I'll ever be over my fear of Koreans/North Korea.

Yep.

But the good news is,that my Obsession with North Korea is over.

But,that doesn't really change how I feel about Koreans in general/North Korea/Korea period.

I'm scared of them. I'll leave the racist bullshit out,but I'm scared of them all and I don't think I'll ever be free of that fear..and I don't think I'll ever be at a point where I understand them either.

Goddamnit.

This world is so damned screwed up.
