This article is about a young girl who escaped North Korea when she was 13 to China and now currently lives in the U.S. She talks about doublethink which is two contrary ideas you have in your mind. How can you believe North Korea is the greatest country in the world when you see so much beauty and prosperity around the world you would never dream of? She says the people of North Korea are experts at lying to eachother. The images of people dying from poverty, famine, etc. are images she can never erase. I think this article does a good job of pointing out a personal story of the regime of North Korea. When will this regime end, will it end, and if so how? It will be interesting to see how other nations over time deal with North Korea.
