Why I am excited about One Korea and I know that it has nothing to do with Trump

Ever since watching VICE's three-part documentary on traveling to North Korea and reading 'Nothing To Envy', I have been haunted by that country's government's behavior (brainwashing) towards its own people.

I have agonized over the fact that family members who happened to live on the other side of each border weren't able to see each other again after the border was drafted at the 38th Parallel (by the UN).

I have gasped when reading about North Korea carefully choreographed trips to put on a show for tourists when the truth behind the curtain was grim as fuck - imagine living in a country where electricity goes out early in the evening, women who ride bikes are openly called 'sluts' (because they dare be seen in public with something in between their legs), you're required to put on an openly emotional display when your Great Leader dies (or you may be arrested and tried as a traitor), you are not allowed to criticize your Great Leader (in fact, y…

James Comey's book 'A Higher Loyalty - Truth, Lies and Leadership' is going to be yet another best seller and will soon replace Michael Wolff's 'Fire And Fury' as well as 'Bobby Kennedy - A Raging Spirit' by Chris Matthews, neither of which I have finished.

Books that I don't care to read: 'What Happened' by Hillary Clinton.

Cheers.
