Why We Really Don’t Know What the World is Like

by Joe Jarvis, The Daily Bell:

If you lived in North Korea, you might think your government had attacked a U.S. aircraft carrier which was approaching the country. You would probably think North Korea had the capabilities to hold their own against the U.S. including “super mighty” preemptive nuclear strikes which could hit mainland USA.

But we live in America, so we believe that North Korea is a backward communist country where the people are oppressed by their government and starving in the streets. Their leader is an insane dictator who talks a big game while the country sits on the brink of collapse.

And this might be close to the truth. We don’t really know though because all of our information about North Korea is imparted to us from the media and our corrupt government which controls them. In that sense, what we know about the world is not so different from what North Koreans know about the world. It is really just a matter of degree.

Here is how news is reported to make us feel superior and safe against North Korea (but not so safe that our government couldn’t have a nice excuse for another war.)

Reclusive North Korea regularly threatens to destroy Japan, South Korea and the United States and has shown no let-up in its belligerence after a failed missile test on Sunday, a day after putting on a huge display of missiles at a parade in Pyongyang…

The North has said it has developed a missile that can strike the mainland United States, but officials and experts believe it is some time away from mastering the necessary technology, including miniaturising a nuclear warhead.

When you think about it, I really don’t honestly know if North Korea is as poor or oppressive as we are told. I have seen the few documentaries which came out of North Korea, and I have seen Hollywood fiction, and I am not confident in my abilities to truly tell the two apart.

I have seen the pathetically low budget videos that North Korea supposedly shows their people in order to convince them of their military superiority to the USA. But again how could I really tell if these are authentic or fabrications by our own government?

    “It is really just a matter of degree.”

    lol… isn’t just about everything? 😀

    But degrees matter… sometimes a LOT. Sun tan vs sun burn… just a matter of degree. 😉

    How We May Know What the World Is Like:

    1) Grammar, 2) Logic, and 3) Rhetoric, i.e., The TRIVIUM. THAT is how we may know what the world is like. Just study the ‘Big Event’ of Nov. 22, 1963, for example. It provides MUCH insight into human nature, particularly as it relates to psychopaths, like LBJ. Start here:

    a) When Will They Ever Learn? [When Will the American People, Ever Learn?]

    Read the comments. Follow all links. Find out who really assassinated JFK. Take a good look at the guest list, at Clint Murchison’s Mansion, on the night of Nov. 21, 1963. And don’t forget about LBJ’s Lawyer, Edward Aubrey Clark, “the arranger”.

    b) How to bring down the elephant in the room [And, It’s A BIG ELEPHANT!]

    Read the comments. Follow all links. It really isn’t any wonder, is it ~ that there is a “Jew”-ish Mafia? Of course not. La Cosa Nostra is a Freemasonic organization for the Italian Mafia. Freemasonry (Modern Speculative Freemasonry, est. 1717, London) is “Jew”-ish. Is it possible, that ORGANIZED CRIME is the ‘Shadow Government’, the REAL government, BEHIND the “official” government? It kinda looks that way, doesn’t it?
