North Korean Concentration Camps and The Divide between Folk Left and Elite Left

When you speak to a leftwinger about this, he will call you a war-monger. And indeed, as far as I’m concerned, I would be open to military intervention. If North Korea had not two mighty allies right on the borders, war were a moral option, maybe the only moral option. Without Russia and China’s backing the removal of the regime could be done with less victims than the average yearly death toll of its tyranny.

The reality is, however, that no military option is feasible at the moment anyway. Talking about North Korean crimes can in no way become a warm-up for a war. The left still does not want you to talk about this in detail. And this is where the folk left and the elitist left split. Both are complicit with the crimes, yet for the elites North Korea is a geostrategic opponent.

The folk left lags behind the elite left and is trapped in the maze that their elites have planted for them. The elite left bears a Janus head. They hate the West because they want to bring it under their control and recreate it in their image. They also hate the rest of the world which is even much less under their control. So when the elite left spots a weak target for military intervention they support an attack across all news channels.

However, they float on the image of pacifism and they win elections with fear-mongering. As a result all previous wars are bemoaned and blamed on the West to destroy its moral while weak targeted foes are demonized and regimes that are not yet in their focus are protected. North Korea is in the third category, but could fall into the second. So we hear some very superficial, not very unsettling criticism about it.

It’s not much that comes through the mainstream media and when you dare to talk about it, the deflection strategies border on aggression. They will tell you when a crime is a crime and a regime is a regime. The folk left does not realize this. They are the tool to deflect your criticism. When a war does break out, they will blame it on the right and the military-industrial complex, which in their mind is also on the right. The fact that the decision makers are actually on camera and utter their left-wing views non-stop is discarded. It is obvious that the elite left has different goals from your average lefty Joe. The left must blame everything on the right and as a consequence you cannot talk about the regimes outside the demonized West.

  1. today friend, tomorrow enemy and then vassall, which is friend again. And every where on this planet we find a shift of democratic structures, a shift from democracy and freedom to dictatorship, control and manipulation. https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/323855/posts/1848713839. Israel is going to lose its democratic basis, too, as wars spread (wars are increasingly favoured in shaping the future…again), because war and democracy do not go well together. And for many governments China seems to be a blue print in governance. No political influence for the people but maximum freedom in economics. This strategy even worked for FRG after WWII although the Germans needed a little bit more democratic illusions to get them going in the right direction. And as time goes by the so called free western nations will share more and more of the same practices and political structures (laws for example) that once have been characteristic for “regimes” and dictatorships. In the end we will find almost the same sort of government everywhere. And we will forget that once there were huge differences between nations and governments, that there was a time with more freedom and the opportunity to choose e.g. what kind of government and what kind of laws we wish to set up (upon ourselves).

    1. China does not allow for economic freedom either. There is no freedom in China. Despite all the talk, Chinese industries are in one way or another under the control of Beijing.

      I agree with the Zionist Party that the PM should not engage in military activity without a vote (in Israel’s case: the vote of the Cabinet). The background is that Iran amesses a lot of military structures on the Syrian/Israel border. So the time span to react against a rocket rain becomes shorter. This is intensified by the progress in nuclear weapon development. It has become technically so easy that even North Korea has one now. Another problem is the continuous war declaration. I have mentioned in my piece on the general morals of starting a war ….

      … that peace can only be upheld when both war and its end are declared properly. Iran, however, is continuously and officially declaring its wish to destroy Israel. They just keep everybody in suspense when the first shot will be heard. The sabre rattling is not empty talk either. Iran does finance Hamas (weird enough because they are sunni competitors) and have carried out terror attacks in Israel (and Lebanon, and Syria…) through their paramilitary arm Hezbollah.

      I still believe that a better law can be found. Israel should declare war only by the Knesset when it’s due. A law can make an exception for specific technological events. The explosion of an atomic bomb on the country or on the air rout directed against Israel should immediately be considered as a declaration of war against those who shot the rocket, no matter who is still alive. Of course, the reason why the Knesset is no longer required and a Cabinet vote suffices is because teeth are on the edge since the Yom Kippur war. I argue in this article …

      … that the Yom Kippur war was actually lost. My personal estimation is that the danger from Iran is still not big enough to escalate the situation and I am very critical with Netanyahu when it comes to this.

      This is really weighing risks against each other. So I get sometimes a bit jaded when people pretend that there is an easy answer and that so many people think that they can moralize over Israel (not you). Anyway, Iran is not North Korea and the human rights situation there would not justify any military action.
