As we know that North Korea is very narrow-minded since the access to information are very limited. But, nowadays, I see that a lot of North Korean already know about outside world through illegal access in Jangmadang and South Korean drama, film and books. And according to many interviews in youtube and websites, a lot of defector said that they escaped North Korea after knowing the truth about outside world through movies and drama they watched under they blanket.
I just wanted to know your opinion about this:
Do you think Korean Wave can be an aspect that may crack the North Korean regime by giving pressure from the ground?
Please share your thought guys!

| Hi, I am a high school student living in Korea.Of course, North Koreans are influenced by Korean dramas or other Korean pop culture, but they are just a few.Since North Korea has been receiving a strict education of communism since the 1950s, the brainwashing education that North Koreans have received since very young will not collapse so easily even if they encounter South Korean culture through illegal channels.|
Hi, I'm Francis from Indonesia, currently an undergraduate student of Universitas Diponegoro majoring International Relations. I am writing a thesis about the Hallyu effect in North Korea that would change how the North Korean people see outside world especially South Korea. I'd like to know if anyone know some North Korean who are living in the South that would like to become my direct source of information. I will keep their name anonymous if they wanted it. I really need this to graduate, anyone please help!!!!!

Nevertheless, it is doubtful whether Scotland will be able to successfully become self-reliant when it comes to the benefits and damages it would have if it were fully independent of international affairs ...
Would not it be better to have more local authority and autonomy?

| The Scottish Parliament already enjoys primary legislative powers so Scotland has already been granted a lot of independent decision-making, enabling policies such as the elimination of university tuition fees. Brexit surely has created issues as Scotland voted differently from the rest, but it’s unsure whether there would be a second referendum and whether Brexit would be carried out. Independence was rejected in the 2014 referendum, and if there’s another referendum it will lead to even more chaos and divisions. Scotland would lose its social-economic status in the world if it breaks free from the rest of the UK.|

Hello, my boyfriend is attracted by my mother since he saw a photo of her when she was young. She was a beauty. Nothing to do, sometimes he preffer her. She has no merit : she has a smile of satisfaction, she wants other women to be ugly; and she wants every nice men. Noplace, nothing for me. She does magnetism for him to keep her as well. She try to proffit of everybody. She has a false charm, everybody like her. She finds normal to be loved by my boyfriend mainly because of his professional titles (he was a psychiatrist).
I cannot find an issue. If I leave him she will win and if I keep him my life will be a constant question and maybe an illusion. Can you help me ? Many thanks

I'm so sorry you had to go through this.
No one should have to feel as though they are second best. Your boyfriend should treat you as though you are the most beautiful woman in the world. He should treat you like a princess -- and never compare you to other women -- especially someone like your own mother.

|Although men are the more dominant sex and portray as the stronger and braver gender. You have to remember that just because they don't look like their physically hurting they may be suffering from things like depression, anxiety an eating disorder, and for younger boys, bullying. The fact that women are designed to carry a child for 9 months and birth it doesn't deny the fact that men don't hurt mentally. Even though abuse is more common for a woman to experience doesn't mean they don't experience it either.|

| 18254 - Reply from Abram15 , 16 yrs (United States) - 2019-01-10 |
| Hi Asta!
I agree that your suggested method for dealing with robbers is much more peaceful than the method chosen by the jeweler and far more desirable because it would not result in death. However, neither of us no the circumstances of the robbery or what threats the robber made against the jeweler. It is very likely that the robber threatened to kill the jeweler if he did not hand over his goods. In that case, the action that the jeweler took is certainly justifiable as self defense. Maybe the robber tried to kill the jeweler first just to make it easier to take what he wanted.
Using lethal force should always be a last resort, but it is necessary in some circumstances. I hope this helps!
| 18216 - Reply from Asta19 (Denmark) - 2018-09-07 |
| So, the law is there so that we don't decide what is rigth or wrong ourselves. The robber was there, not to kill the man, but to steal. The man should have given the robber what he wanted, waited to he left and then called the police. He would probably had had his stuff back and the robber would probably had gone to prison, but it would have been by the law. If we just start to kill each other, by proclaiming our own rigth and wrong, society will collaps into anarchy.|

| Bonjour Laura!
The robber was making threats on the jeweler's life; Was the jeweler to wait till he was killed? It was probably not the jeweler's intention to kill the burglar, incapacitation would have been sufficient to protect himself and his goods. But if the jeweler had intended to kill, then he is at fault because thievery does not carry the death penalty nor is it justifiable to take a life only to defend possessions. However, the burglar did wield a knife and it is easy to imagine how the jeweler may have feared for his life and taken measures to neutralize the threat.
Is that what they teach you in France, that it is wrong for an individual to take initiative and do what is right? Must it be a government institution decides what is right, acts as the sole instrument of justice? What the founders of the United States held was that the true legitimacy of the law comes from God, not from the government. And government institutions are (1) made up of people and (2) not above ordinary citizens in interpreting God's law. They laid upon ordinary individuals great responsibility in keeping order and preventing tyranny by affording the right to keep and bear arms and reemphasizing their God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Christianity has influenced many man-made legal systems around the world, and in almost all of them violent actions that would otherwise be considered crimes are justified in the context of self defense when (1) the threat to life is imminent and (2) the fear of harm is reasonable. In this situation, the defender may take violent actions proportional to the level of threat to defend himself or other people. I am confident that this is the rule in France as well.
It is, however, up to the court to decide whether or not the danger was imminent and whether or not his response was proportional to the threat. There is also a doctrine called imperfect self defense which applies when the latter criterion is not met, i.e. the person had an irrational fear for their life. In this situation the person will still be charged with a crime, but the sentence will be less severe.
What do you think? And thanks for your input!

|Some people say "don't tell me, show me." Well, the United Sates of America stands with Israel, and I think that we have proven just that. Shifting the U.S. embassy from the Mediterranean metropolis of Tel Aviv, to the religious hub of Jerusalem, was an overdue promise. Every U.S. president, from H.W. Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama, had given their word to place the embassy in the Jerusalem, Israel. Yet for some reason or another, every six months, extensions were signed, crippling that expectation. During his first year of being in office, President Trump publicly acknowledged Jerusalem, as Israel's rightful, capital city. Within only five months later, he has done what others had procrastinated to do in two decades! I commend the United States and President Trump, for not only approving of the relocation, but for it bringing into physical manifestation.
Over 35,000 Palestinians and protesters, lined the Israeli border, rioting and trying to break through the border. Like most any other nation would do if on the precipice of invasion or massacre, Israel set up a line of defense. I don't understand why, sympathy, and attention was given to the Palestinian side, as though Israel was in the wrong. Sixty-two lives, is the death toll from violent protest in the Palestinian's "March of Return". At least fifty of the people, were from Hamas. Though the loss of life is lamentable, Israel did not intentionally kill innocent people, only defend their territory.
Tension has always been in the Middle East. Hatred is what many people thrive on. Death and threats are a daily part of living. The Palestinians were just pitching a hissy fit. Summer has just started and temperatures are rising. Hopefully soon things will balance out, and possible solutions be found.
