Although N Korea Put This Out There

...we must consider the message....NOT the messenger:

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!

I

finally got to finish this video last night. Even though in many cases it's the "pot calling the kettle black," the core methodology is the same. I found it to be thought provoking.

If anyone hasn't seen this video from Stefan Molyneux, it's worth the 13 minutes imho.
The Story of your Enslavement

this video is amazing

I am confident North Korea is not a beacon of good, but it points out the painfully obvious facts about modern America. It makes me sad that I at one point believed in the lie.

This is da mn good. 10 min in

This is da mn good. 10 min in and one of the best things I've seen in a long time.

"The Western religions of

"The Western religions of Judaism, Christianity and Catholicism use a propaganda manual called, The Bible."

17 minutes 50 seconds in.

This video is so insulting and pro communist it makes me gag.

I feel like I'm in college again. "Liberal Arts," no kidding!

So the Bible is a, "progaganda manual?" The 10 Commandments are just propaganda?

Jesus is a propagandist?

"They add the idea of an eternal soul, that way, death doesn't seem so bad."

18 minutes 53 seconds in.

So they don't believe in the soul/spirit, and then they go on to bash religion based upon human actions...so of course religion is bad.

There is no God, the state is god to them.

May God please forgive them and have mercy upon their eternal souls that do exist. What is an, "orb?" Spherical soul spiritual energy.

Energy can not be destroyed, it has to go somewhere...

Einstein - "Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another."

Godless communists don't like science, hence Darwin and global warming.

Do I get college credit for taking this course on Communist North Korean Propaganda 101?

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

40 up votes for North Korean

40 up votes for North Korean propaganda on the Daily Paul, how bizarre.

They make shopping equatable to being a serial killer...and that's bull crap.

The best form of a true, "democracy," develops in the market place. The truth is for sale, and it's selling quite well in America thank you. Many agree. Many disagree. But I think just about every single one of us here would agree on one thing - they'd rather live here in the United States rather than North Korea.

If the 40 people who up voted this spent 40 days in North Korea, I wonder how they would feel after standing in shoes they've never worn before.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

How do you know what you are being told about North Korea

is true?

I don't....Never saw it never been there and I sure dont want to take the United Nations word for it....

Is the documentary I think wolfe is talking about. Shane Smith of Vice gets into North Korea documents his tour.

Yep... :)

Thank you. That's awesome that you had it readily available. I watched it long enough to recognize it.

There actually has been confirmed documentation.

There was a decent documentary done by independent journalists. I wish I could remember the name, but they had video documentation, etc. That certainly doesn't mean everything you hear about it is true, but NK is no bastion of freedom or even simple common decency.

Having said that, the US beef with NK has nothing to do with the evil dictatorship, and is only about the central banking cartel.

I dont think any of us

I dont think any of us believe north korea is a nice place to live. I think the upvotes are because much of their anti usa propaganda is true and we like the truth.

I think they must read the

I think they must read the daily paul over in north korea. They seem well educated about how our political system really works. I really know very little about life in north korea but I bet it would be much better without our sanctions. Our media just says they are evil because they are developing nuclear weapons. If possessing nuclear weapons makes a country evil then I guess the usa is the most evil country in the world. In fact we are the only country that has ever used one in war.

I have a little bit of a hard time believing this was made by NK

Sounds like a lot of people on here. I don't know Korean and can't verify if this is translated acuratle and that it was made by NK. Just seems to like they know our culture too well.

This

was pretty good. Told what is wrong with this country and the others that follow the leaders here. But, they too are the problem. N. Korea is what these jerks here are aiming to turn our country into.
They told one great truth. The founders of our country had it right! The constitution they forged. Is the perfect example for the rest of the world to follow. Not their "Great Leader"!

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

WOW!!!

What a good documentary I'm 1/4 through it and I have found it very precise to that which we have already discovered for ourselves. Good Find!!!

In Psychology you learn that those who are most oppressed within society are the ones that are most aware as to what truly is going on. Maybe this psychological principle is what moves little tyrannical North Korea to be so precise!

There are many things wrong with North Korea...

... and they are also involved in great evil. But I found that the film was pretty much dead on accurate as it pertains to the United States and the average brainwashed US citizen. There really are no words to describe the evil that the United States corporation perpetrates around the globe. The world is run by the most evil monsters ever to walk this planet and the United States is their personal army. Very good video deserving a bump from me.

Thanks

for the review. I was a little leary of promoting this without seeing all of it. I hope to watch the rest of it tonight when I get home.

Human nature.

In all of us, exists a directive that is both untrue and harmful.

The directive can simply be stated as, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." Logically we all know this to be nonsense, but on an emotional/instinctual level we tend to believe it.

I can show you documentaries from the US propaganda machine about how awful other countries are (lol, as if we have a shortage of that) which are 90% truth, laced with 10% lies. The more believable those lies, and the more impactful the truth is, the more successful those efforts are.

This is the same garbage that spews from our own liars, just a different flavor. If you watch it, and can discern the truth from the lies, then good for you, and preach ONLY the -truth- you have learned, and leave the lies behind.

Of course I loved it.

Its the closest thing I've seen to the truth in a very long time.

Meanwhile, in Cleveland, your neighbor is a psychopath. Film every five minutes.

4 billion peaceful human interactions took place in America today...but a despicable thing took place in Cleveland and that's all you know.

Communism

"In this big, epic movie - everyone is an extra." - On Communism; From a indie movie about the French student riots during Vietnam. (See: The Dreamers)

It is amazing how many American films the DPRK has stockpiled to make this film. This is telling. I note that Chomsky is mentioned and exploited, to derive this film, which is a clear rip of "Manufacturing Consent". While there are some universal truths in the film, there is no introspection as to what DPRK has done wrong, and this is its downfall.

Some accusations are uncorroborated and extremely unlikely, like the statement that Korea warned the U.S. of Pearl Harbor in advance...

Here is a big plot hole in this film: The DPRK has test detonated numerous nukes, they declared an end to the armistice, and under their logic, you would think that the entire world would be crossing over the DMZ in a massive invasion. This is not the case. North Korea is a nuclear state and it will not happen.

The goal of the film isn't to expose how the world works, but to justify a lack of dialogue with any nation in the world besides China and Russia. Is this not a bit extreme to its own device?

Nice find

Funny, I enjoyed this

It's funny to watch biased propaganda against biased propaganda. A lot of the things they said was very true like foreign policy, other things they said was just over cynical crazy talk (like the Tarantino critique made me chuckle a bit and the last half hour).

After watching the first 9

After watching the first 9 minutes, I guess now I'm going to be labeled a "North Korean Sympathizer" because I agree with most of what they said. Oh well, I guess I will get a free trip to gitmo now for posting this...

Beware the cult of "government"...

"This narcissistic parasite comes from a wealthy hotel family."

LOL - I love that line when they introduce Paris Hilton.

I've seen this documentary before. As contradicting as it may be they pretty much nailed it.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

Fantastic.

That was great.
