It is very difficult for freedom loving people with full stomachs to understand why the North Koreans do not revolt?
The assumption is if you are normal person, you love your freedom. Right?
No. Not so. Your first priority HAS to be HUNGER. If you are hungry, you cannot think of anything else. It is easy to fast, if you know where your next meal is going to come from. Hunger is when you do not know from where your next meal will come!
So writers like Ayn Rand who spoke about capitalism did not suffer or write about hunger. Socialism believed that hunger, education, and health are the real issues. A trip to any of the socialist countries (ex socialist ??) shows how the basic needs were met by them. Socialism is a good start, achieve 100% literacy then embrace capitalism seems to be the answer!!
No I do not want to write about Capitalism vs Socialism, but just wondering. Let us take AR’s ideas to a larger level – should all the capitalists in the world realise that the population of North Korea is a great market? So it is in their INTEREST to free those people from the oppressive regime? They could be a good market at the bottom of the pyramid – but food, clothing, schools, ..they would be looking for all of that, right?
Well read on…Economist says
