    Really interesting article I read today On how North Korean children are taught to hate America. During summer break school children visit an anti American museum. 
    Ridiculous and pathetic.  Of course, we do the same thing only maybe a little more subtly.  

    What does the average American feel about North Koreans?  I'm thinking many  Americans, if not the majority, have a strong disliking for North Koreans.  But what do we know about them?  How many Americans know something as basic about NK as the fact that overall, NK women earn more money than men and more men stay home to raise the children than do women?  Not many, is my guess. 

    Maybe if we just knew a bit more about each other, people in different parts of the world would find more interest in each other than hate.  Maybe.

    All your questions could be solved Blux if you took a trip to N. Korea.  Go there and report your findings to this thread. There is nothing stopping you from going there right?

    Yes, fear of flying!

    But Henry has been there!  What he says is very revealing.  He criticizes the government there but is sympathetic of the people and describes them as very poor and fearful of their government.

    I would suggest he go live in NK for a while a get a taste of poverty and governmental repression.  Weird how people judge an entire nation of people based on the injustices of a small minority there.

    He doesn't hate the people.  Just thinks it's the cost of doing business to get 'regime change'.  Gotta crack a few eggs.  Freedom bombs are coming your way.

    Heard that before.

    You would think the art of the deal guy would be able to deal everyone out of this.  Deals.

    And our children are brainwashed with Manifest Destiny and American Exceptionalism... among other things

    How many people have been killed by American military adventures since the end of the Korean War? A few million in southeast Asia and a few million in the middle east maybe? And from what I can tell almost nobody gives a shit... speaking of brainwashing.
