The Mass Hysteria of North Korea

2011 was not a pleasant year for dictators and oppressors, as one by one, the list of “Outlaws” dwindled significantly, from the death of Osama Bin Laden & Muammar Ghadaffi, to North Korea’s very own Kim Jong Il, a man who’s communist regime is the definition of Iron Curtain.

This was the scene in North Korea as reported by local television stations:

It does not take a genius to discern that 99.998% of that grief is “staged”.

In a regime where atrocities such as executing a man for using his cell phone occur (link), is it really a far fetched idea that anyone who does not “conform” will be show similar courtesy?

The brutal communist regime, which is technically at war with South Korea, has warned its 24 million population that any contact with the nation south of its borders is a crime punishable by life in prison or death.

 He was taken away and subjected to extreme torture, when he confessed that he had told a defector friend in South Korea about the harsh living conditions in the communist state.

The death of the dictator has prompted South Koreans to reach out to their Northern neighbors in rather bizarre ways, such as this:

South Koreans launched giant balloons carrying parcels of socks and goodwill messages into North Korea today, a week after the death of the communist state’s leader renewed tensions between the two countries.

The actions of the North Koreans in the video above, is mimicked all over the globe, as from the likes of the staunch supporters of Bashar Al-Asaad, as well as Ali Abdullah Saleh.

The actions of these people beget a very serious question, is it possible for such a fraction of people to be so desensitized, so out-of-touch from the world so as to believe in their mass hysteria?

It was always a firm belief that in every man, woman and child there exists a spark that can distinguish between right and wrong, justice and injustice, fact and fiction. As we get older however, we realize that all those polar opposites are open to interpretation, and the world carries a great many shades of grey.

May 2012 be the beacon of hope that the world needs to right its path, and not the harbinger of destruction as the Mayans predicted.

It all depends on YOU.

You choose whether you live your life as an ostrich, planting your head in the sand so as to convince yourself that everything is ok, or address the root of the problem and attempt to change the outcome.

As The Prophet Mohammed, Peace Be Upon Him, said:

“Whoever amongst you sees anything objectionable, let him change it with his hand, if he is not able, then with his tongue, and if he is not even able to do so, then with his heart, and the latter is the weakest form of faith.”

And as the Arabic saying goes, “he who is silent on injustice is a mute demon“.

Be heard.
