WHAT IS WRONG WITH NORTH KOREA?
WHAT IS WRONG WITH NORTH KOREA?|
Why does North Korea behave so strange? Why doesn't she just put down her defense and join our party of free for all? Why does she choose to put her people through such harsh measures? Why does she lock herself in a tight coccoon? And why is she going in the opposite direction?
This is becasue we cannot understand her. And that's because we are too barbaric to understand how precious a future she is fighting for.
This future is the Asian cultural past!
The impasse in the 6-nation peace talk is caused by the diplomats talking pass, rather than to, each other. Our sides talked about politics, militarism and economics and North Korea side was thinking only of threats to her traditional culture. There is no common language between barbarism and culturalism.
The Asian Culture, as this independent observer from the land of barbarism can best decipher, is:
情義直忠合, or emotion, righteousness, straightforwardness, loyalty and unity.
These Asian cultural ideals go counter to the Western principles of democracy, freedom, equality, religion and human rights. "Emotion" and "righteousness" nurtures harmony and benevolence, while the Western principles encourage competition through predatory practices. Democracy trashes "loyalty's" ideals of observance of seniority and worshipping of ancestors. Freedom has bred such self-indulgence in the modern man that he has lost the minimum self-identity for being "straightforward" with him and much so with others. Being "straightforward" with her feelings, the North Koreans really have zero chance of a prayer pitting against the America's mastery of public relations.
Together with equality and human rights, freedom is threaten to completely break down the Asian traditional social hierarchy that rigorously adheres social status and meritorious differences, which are essential to achieve harmonious "unity". North Korea is clinging so tightly to the Asian traditional hierarchy of scholars, farmers, laborers and merchants that it erected a giant stature with only the first top three social classes included, emphatically dropped the dishonorable merchants altogether. But in the West, we are all merchants in disguise.
Finally, when religion is allowed to run amok, Asia takes leave from thousands of years of cultural development and plunges right back into the prehistorical era of gods and gobblings.
In fact, at the height of Chinese civilization during the Qing Dynasty, China also gave up everything for the preservation of the Asian culture. At that time, it was the smart Jews, supported by British Royal Navy, that marinated the most advanced civilization with opium and started a feast on China that lasted 100 years. The Oscar-winning propagada feat by the Westernized Chinese pet vultures of Sun Yat Sen and Chiang Kai Shek, finally dilute the Asian Culture in China so much so that it is now just a wishful dream for even the most zealous of diehards.
Also, there are something about barbarism the Asian Culture could not even relate to. It's the securely guarded, but ubiquitous, hypocricy that induce lyings in politics, greed in economics and savagery of militarism. But the North Koreans are forced to exhaust her resources to stay militarily alert. Now, nevertheless, the crowning achievement of barbarism, the seamless propaganda machine, is making us all feeling sure that the North Korea has gone mad.
