your hatred of the US?
You sure do take liberties and huge leaps don't you!
we have a country that allows no access for spying and no information comes to us but gossip and you want us all to decide they are all living in
horror...only thing that would make you happy is if everyone makes your huge leaps from nothing!
The image posted below your post shows NK dark, how's that for a country where people are doing good? Even most places considered horribly are at
least lit up at night. Just because we can't get spies in doesn't mean it's impossible to deduce any information about their situations.
Two FACTS that are not in dispute, AFAIK:
NK is dark at night. From that I deduce they are a nation that A: is so close to collapse they literally can't even afford to keep the lights on, or
B: they care so little for their people that they COULD turn the lights on, but they don't to provide power for other things. Can you posit a
reasonable deduction of why NK is dark at night? Do you think it's for environmental reasons? Can't be that, we already know their pollution is
rampant. They like playing massive scale hide-and-seek games? (that one might be true, in a sense)
The people of NK are not allowed to simply leave their country and re-locate. Maybe you'll argue NK is so awesome that nobody ever tried to leave so
they simply have no need for a procedure that allows their citizens to move, personally I find that a laughable idea and find it far more likely that
policy is in place because things are so bad there if they let people leave they wouldn't have a population.
How does American propaganda play into those two things, tell me? What am I so wrong about? Does NK actually shine like a thousand sun in satellite
pics and we just see photoshopped ones? Are North Koreans free to leave and happily traveling all over the globe telling tales of their wonderful life
but as a stupid American I just have never talked to them or heard about them?
I'm seriously asking, and yet nobody can/wants to tell me. What specifically am I wrong about, these TWO examples are enough to give you a great
glimpse into NK and they don't require you to believe America. I'm willing to change my opinion if you show me something I haven't seen before, or
explained your views in a different way. So far the only thing I've seen from you guys is "Everything about NK is lies, US sucks, etc etc" which
really isn't anything of substance.
Some things you don't need to lie about to paint as bad, and NK is one of them. Not saying they are a threat to me, or really any nation outside
their immediate area, but their people need to be given freedom. As long as you admit they aren't allowed to leave then you admit they have had their
freedom stolen from them by their government, yet still you defend it. Mind boggling....
If things in NK are NOT all that bad where are the multitudes of North Korean expats all over the planet speaking of it's wonders? They speak of
