We interrupt your regularly scheduled brainwashing for a dose of reality for a brave young woman who defected from North Korea in a brutal journey so she could be free. Eventually, she made it to the US to attend an Ivy League American school.
Yeonmi Park has seen firsthand where the United States is headed….and it’s straight to North Korea if we don’t make changes soon.
Propaganda in North Korea
Anyone who saw the movie “The Interview” recognized that under the farce there was a lot of truth. Kim Jong Un is a brutal dictator who will not allow citizens to access the internet or learn anything about critical thinking. The propaganda in North Korea is rampant – both anti-American and pro-North Korea.
For example, there’s a long-running cartoon shown to schoolchildren called “A Squirrel and Hedgehog.”
Yet we should not forget that films and cartoons in North Korea send an ideological message. Usually it is very simple: all the army, the party, and the people follow the unsurpassed leaders of Mount Paektu in their march from victory to victory against the mortal enemies of the Korean people willing that the wicked American imperialists, the evil Japanese claimants of territory, and their south Korean puppets suffer defeat-after-defeat, bringing ever closer the day when they will be erased from the face of the planet.
The least ideological material on North Korean TV happens to be children’s cartoon series, the most well-known which is called “A Squirrel and Hedgehog”.
The story is quite simple. There is a community of good animals who live on Flower Hill, but they are attacked by an evil Weasel Legion. The Flower Hill animals respond by sending a brave squirrel named Goldie agent to infiltrate the Legion. Goldie becomes close to the evil overlord – the Weasel General – yet soon sabotages his plans, helping his allies from Flower Hill. And when the Weasel Legion is defeated in episode 26, a new enemy rises: a Jackal Legion…
…The morality presented in the series is utterly black and white alike those usually in North Korean fiction. Goldie and the other Flower Hill animals are smart, noble, witty and ready to self-sacrifice. Weasels, jackals and their allies, on the other hand, are mean and treacherous cowards, longing to betray everyone they see…
…Finally, and this is perhaps the saddest part of all, “A Squirrel and a Hedgehog” is actually a cruel cartoon.
Here I am not merely talking about the Jackal General, who suffers a nervous breakdown in almost every episode. The cruelty is actually more associated with Goldie and his allies, who constantly call their enemies “bastards” and “scum,” using violence against a defeated enemy on a regular basis…
…Outside of North Korea, most cartoons and films about wars talk about a show of compassion towards the defeated enemy and civilians, in which when the hero is forced to kill, it is not an easy thing. In North Korea, however, the mentality seems to be “We are right. The enemy is not. Kill the enemy and make him suffer.” (source)
In North Korea, there is no internet, all media is state-run, and there’s only one television channel. Only one point of view is allowed to exist. From the time they start school, children in North Korea are inundated with propaganda to the point that they’re completely brainwashed. Sound familiar?
Back to Yeonmi Park’s interview
Yeonmi, now 27, escaped from North Korea with her mother when she was 13 years old. The journey was treacherous. She and her mother were sold to sex traffickers, then rescued by missionaries, they walked across the Gobi Desert to reach freedom. Eventually, they reached safe haven in South Korea. She wrote about her fight to live free in her 2015 memoir, In Order to Live.
We’ve talked here before about a Marxist agenda in the US education system and Park agrees. When she transferred to Columbia University, she says she was deeply disturbed by what she saw.
“I expected that I was paying this fortune, all this time and energy, to learn how to think. But they are forcing you to think the way they want you to think,” Park said in an interview with Fox News. “I realized, wow, this is insane. I thought America was different but I saw so many similarities to what I saw in North Korea that I started worrying.”
Those similarities include anti-Western sentiment, collective guilt and suffocating political correctness.
Yeonmi saw red flags immediately upon arriving at the school…
…It only got worse from there as Yeonmi realized that every one of her classes at the Ivy League school was infected with what she saw as anti-American propaganda, reminiscent to the sort she had grown up with. (source)
Yeonmi was baffled by what American students considered oppression.
“Because I have seen oppression, I know what it looks like,” said Yeonmi, who by the age of 13 had witnessed people drop dead of starvation right before her eyes.
“These kids keep saying how they’re oppressed, how much injustice they’ve experienced. They don’t know how hard it is to be free,” she admonished…
….”The people here are just dying to give their rights and power to the government. That is what scares me the most.” (source)
This is something we’ve witnessed to a shocking degree during the Covid pandemic, which has been used as an opportunity to change the world forever. People have given up their livelihoods, their lives, their very freedom to walk their dogs.
The United States of America was not what she expected.
Yeonmi had always dreamed of coming to the United States.
Having come to America with high hopes and expectations, Yeonmi expressed her disappointment.
“You guys have lost common sense to degree that I as a North Korean cannot even comprehend,” she said.
She thought she was going to come here and learn to think critically.
She accused American higher education institutions of stripping people’s ability to think critically.
“In North Korea I literally believed that my Dear Leader [Kim Jong-un] was starving,” she recalled. “He’s the fattest guy – how can anyone believe that? And then somebody showed me a photo and said ‘Look at him, he’s the fattest guy. Other people are all thin.’ And I was like, ‘Oh my God, why did I not notice that he was fat?’ Because I never learned how to think critically.”
“That is what is happening in America,” she continued. “People see things but they’ve just completely lost the ability to think critically.” (source)
Critical thinking is indeed becoming a lost art, particularly as anyone thinking outside the status quo gets “canceled” or “defunded.” Our country is rapidly turning into the kind of place in which only one opinion can be held. To hold a different viewpoint is practically criminalized.
The worst part is that people here have chosen their path.
Yeonmi is watching America go down a totalitarian path.
Witnessing the depth of American’s ignorance up close has made Yeonmi question everything about humanity.
“North Koreans, we don’t have Internet, we don’t have access to any of these great thinkers, we don’t know anything. But here, while having everything, people choose to be brainwashed. And they deny it.” (source)
We’re seeing changes though, that take us further and further toward that kind of world. Alternative news sites are shut down in a wave of virtual book-burning. Social media purges any dissenting point of view. TikTok brainwashes young people in 15-60 second intervals. University professors promote violence against those who think differently.
Have things gone too far?
Is it fixable? Yeonmi questions where our country goes at this point.
“Where are we going from here?” she wondered. “There’s no rule of law, no morality, nothing is good or bad anymore, it’s complete chaos.”
“I guess that’s what they want, to destroy every single thing and rebuild into a Communist paradise.” (source)
There’s a playbook, we wrote it, and it’s being used to turn our once-proud nation into a parody of itself. Our very education is brainwashing students into hating our country and being ashamed of our race if we’re white. Social media inspires paroxysms of self-induced guilt over the possibility one may have accidentally micro-aggressed or not been 100% inclusive to everyone on the planet, thinking ahead of any potential handicap or mental illness that might have caused someone discomfort. Americans have become offended over practically everything and the butthurt is real. Some of it would be funny if it wasn’t so damned tragic.
Critical thinking is frowned upon, canceled, and defunded. Why?
Because we’re being set up for a communist takeover and the brainwashed masses will applaud. With jazz hands, of course, so they don’t “trigger” those who are bothered by loud noises. And definitely no memos will be sent announcing the changes using “frightening” all-caps.
What do you think?
Do you see the similarities between us and the most restrictive country on the planet? Do you think we’re headed that way? How do we stop it?
Let’s discuss it in the comments.

Great article. I am so ashamed, disappointed no actually completely Disgusted at what AmeriKA has become but even worse is the fact that 99.9% of us are sitting back on the sofa, allowing this take over of the country and we are doing what we do best: Absolutely NOTHING!! AmeriKA, WTF is wrong with you/us/me? ? Do you not see what is taking place and where we are headed?
I respectfully disagree.
There are a number of parents who are pushing back against this Marxist indoctrination to include minorities who see the danger of what it is.
A number of states have or are proposing to pass laws against this kind of indoctrination being taught in their school systems.
People who are definitely not right-wing are calling it out for what it is, to include Megyn Kelly, Bill Maher, and Bari Weiss to name few.
There are more than a few teachers whom have resigned in protest, or refusal to promote this kind of thinking.
Question is, what kind of society are we going to have in the very near future? American was divided before and seems to be only getting worse.
Are we going to have a college grad with a computer science degree lacking critical thinking skills or how to communicate effectively cannot determine the IP range of a given subnet mask? But can tell you all about Marxism!
its not all about the crt though, its about how this country is being taken over in other aspects!!!! Concerned Citizen is right, why are we all sitting on our assess ALLOWING this to happen all across the country??? why arent we out there doing something, what can we do, how can we take back our country before its too late? it almost is…..each day, something else is changed for the worse, people are allowed to kill, steal, hate, cheat, etc. WITH NO CONSEQUENCES….WHERE IS OUR LAW? how can we protect ourselves, our lives, families, businesses, homes, etc. when the criminals are allowed to do anything they want to anyone, and walk away unscathed???? we have to SUPPORT AND HELP our police, get rid of lawyers/judges/politicians who wont and dont uphold the laws of our country, our constitution and so on!!!! AMERICA IS JUST ABOUT GONE FOLKS, IF WE DONT LOCK, LOAD, AND TAKE IT BACK, we will regret it, our lifestyles will never be the same, our freedoms WILL BE GONE FOREVER…and all those who have and still giving the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms will have died in vain…..THINK ABOUT THAT….
One half of the country hates the other half.
One half of the country does not want anything to do with the other half.
Why would you want to take back that half that hates you?
Perhaps rather than shooting each other, it is better to agree to go our separate ways and blatantly ignore each other. They have their social media sites, we have ours. They have their cities and states, we have ours. They have their laws, we have ours, government, schools, healthcare etc.
Cuz let me tell, you, if a real shooting war starts, there will be a lot of people who would die and have nothing to do with the war.
I have been to a war zone. I would rather not see that here on American soil.
What, exactly, can BE done? Other than teaching your own kids the truth all you have is voting, Voting of course, doesn’t actually work any more. Enough people have been indoctrinated in the public school system into believing that socialism is “fair”, and politicians offering “Democratic Socialism” and free college are the ones for whom they’ll vote.
CC.the men are fat,lazy and to drunk to care,and Completely brainwashed,when the war begins THEY will fight on the side of the Government and be trying to kill the REAL patriots who see their enslavement ,THE POLICE AND MILITARY have told them to their face YOUR OUR SLAVES,it went right over their head,THE EVIL has arrived,and its the brainwashed citizens of america,IT can’t be stopped or fixed,the people of america are to far gone…THIS will be the most bloodest war in history thats coming..get CLOSE TO THE LORD,you’ll all be meeting him shortly FACE TO FACE…
I hope he comes quickly!
So, no matter what direction the nation goes, I will stand up for what I believe ~ freedom, law and order, the Constitution! And my freedom of RELIGION! At my age, latter 70’s, I suspect I will be an easy target for elimination. To a certain extent, I have worked through this concept. I have had a good life, blessed well beyond what I had ever expected! I do know where I am headed in the afterlife. I do hope the transition will be quick, but there are no guarantees about that, huh?
I sense very very difficult times ahead, whereas, no one I know seems too. If I express these concerns they will undoubtedly think ~ He is getting senile! Everyone I know has been”fully vaccinated” Whatever on earth that means. It’s a total misnomer ‘the shots’ are not vaccines and fully? Well they say there are booster shots coming! So BOTH WORDS to not apply to reality! I had been doing research last summer about the ‘vaccines’ and was talking, on the phone I am West Coast she is Ohio, to a long term friend from Middle School and a Christian friend. I indicated , perhaps too strongly, that I thought she needed to pray as to whether she should take the ‘vaccine’. Apparently, that upset her and she has ghosted me since Sept, it is now mid Jun that is 9 months. My former sister-in-law and I were talking on the phone, she is Ohio also, several months ago and the subject of ‘vaccines’ came up, it quickly became contentuous. Months earlier I had made the general statement “I think we are bing lied too” She immediately went to ASSUMING I WAS SAYING THAT COVID was not real. I told her I DID NOT SAY THAT! So now unless forced to talk about it, I WILL NOT TALK ABOUT IT. Sad we cannot in this culture, anymore, have a rational discussion about the things that will change our lives, and in some cases end our lives! THIS DEFECTOR KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT, but there are few rational, reasonable Americans around to have an intelligent reasonable rational discussion!
It is what it is, unbelievably sad, but it is what it is!
You my dear friend are a bloody genius in the context of the world we live in now. It used to be called “common sense and critical thinking”. NOTHING is going to get better….ever…. while man is running the show. Planet earth is under judgement. It is simply the count down to collapse. Or put another way as Dylan used to say…”It’s all over now baby blue”. You are not alone mister, but yes…there are precious few of us left with brain cells that have not been washed.
A northern senior hailing from the police state in the Yukon. Cheery-O
Good comment and great attitude. It’s attitude that will see you through the dark times ahead.
I’m glad that I’m old as well. It’s the kids that I worry about most.
totally in agreement with you. I too am in my 70s, cant believe I’ve lived to see this great country fall to its knees after all the sacrifices made by so many thru the decades……its so sad, that apparently we havent learned from the mistakes made, and moved forward, seems like we are regressing in so many things…race, education, science, etc…..the hate and racism in this country is overwhelming, thought I’d never see it, but here it is….apparently this total destructive takedown of America started long ago and we havent paid attention to what is in front of us….those who have seen, are called stupid, ignorant, out in left field, dreaming, senile, dont know what they’re talking about, and so many other things. but the signs have always been there, we just didnt want to see them…..NOW IT IS HERE, so what can we do to save our country???? time is very, very short for all of us….we cant wait any longer….like you SplishSplash, I have had a good life, very blessed (still am for now), pray every day for our survival, but should I not be, then I’m thankful for the life I’ve had, people I’ve met, things I’ve learned, knowledge I’ve gained, and hope that in some small way I’ve made a good difference in someone’s life along the way. I hope I will be one of God’s chosen when He returns, cause I dont think I want to be here when He finally comes for his people…..God bless us all, and God bless America, cause we sure do need it!!!!
You HOPE you will be one of God’s chosen? You do not know? Of everything you mentioned, that sentence really hit me the hardest. Do more Bible reading… You do not have to HOPE God will choose you.. You can know for sure.
“You do not know?”
honest calvinists will admit that no-one can know until judgement day.
and most christians don’t know, they just assume and hope everything turns out ok.
Most people in the country believe America is on the wrong track and will tell you if asked. It’s just very seldom do sensible, god fearing country folks get to voice their opinions.
Isn’t it sad that a young North Korean woman needs to tell America that they are failing badly and are acting just like NK. Yep Kimmy-baby Fat Boy is just another psychopath as is Biden and his son Hunter.
Not sure about a psychopath, I think Joey and son actually believe they care. Dude is a brain washed sellout.
My mom lived in the Soviet Union in 1980, and then both my parents (and baby Joanna!) lived in Berlin in the early 80s. So my parents got a good look at Communism in the USSR and East Germany, up close and personal. They say the exact same thing. They have been so unnerved lately as well. My dad said that, in East Germany, “I lied, you lied, the police lied, the government lied, we all knew each other lied, and we all did it anyway. Because that’s just how you functioned there.”
It’s been the same here with all the Covid stuff. I know it’s a real disease, but the response has been totally illogical, from the point of view of someone that wants a healthy nation. In fact it’s almost like the powers that be DON’T want a healthy nation. . .
I think the only way to stop it is to do what so many of us have been doing (or trying to do) and comply as little as possible. Homeschooling, forming communities of like-minded people to support each other, and working toward getting off the grid are the best things I can think of.
agreed….covid is a virus, and viruses have been around and will be around forever…..notice nothing about the past year’s flu season…..the powers that be DONT want a healthy nation, they want to control our bodies, thoughts, life, everything about us!!! we have been lied to by everyone, we cant trust anyone anymore, not even neighbors!!
its hard to form a community of support, you dont know who you can trust….as to getting off the grid…how do us “oldsters” manage that at our ages and physical disabilities? we cant go out and find a homestead, we cant go out and survive in the woods, we cant be doing that much moving, camping out, or trying to cut out a homestead life….we’re quite limited now. some of us have prepped as much as we can, but getting off grid? no…..few years ago I lived in mtns of WV, couldnt wait to get back to warmer climate….now had I had inkling of what was coming….I wouldve stayed put, wish I had….. now I’m stuck…couldnt get back to mtns to family if I have to…….
Only from the theocrats who want to shove their “christian” religion down our throats. But since even they can’t agree on the “right” religion, we get to watch them self-destruct.
What theocrats are trying to shove “christian” religion down our throats?
We used to get a visit from the Jehovah’s Witnesses about twice a year. Then the wife answered the door with a glass of wine in one hand, and smoking a cigarette in the other.
Have not seen them since. Cannot imagine why.
She got invited to some church group. She turned them down. That is about the extent of anyone trying to shove any religion down anyone’s throat.
Got married by a card carrying ordained Church of the Flying Spaghetti minister. He was in pirate garb and all.
The only “theocrats who want to shove their religion down our throats” are the ones running the Democrat party. Their godless religion is called Cultural Marxism. It promises a utopia on earth for all of the true believers who voted for Joe Biden.
Got some bad news for you democrat true believers. When the mainstream media is behind your movement you are not the resistance. You are not rebels. You are not standing up to the man. You are brainwashed puppets of the Corpocracy.

Biden Administration Asks Americans to Report ‘Potentially’ Radicalized Friends and Family, by CHARLIE SPIERING, 15 Jun 2021
[Looks like an Amerikan version of the East German Stasi police surveillance state.]
Plus 7,422 comments, & counting fast…
Interestingly enough, I read an autobiography many years ago of an ARVN major who had direct experience with the NK through the defector program. His assessment of them was they were the most dishonest, superstitious, and uneducated people he’d ever met in his life. He eventually had to leave Vietnam after spending six years in one of Uncle Ho’s prison camps. The book was called Nationalist in the Vietnam Wars, for anyone interested.
As for oppression-our poor are the richest on the planet, though I wish we’d spend more money helping them and less on foreign aid. We have veterans sleeping in the streets while the woke are screaming about Central Americans living in hotels and a public education system producing kids who can’t read, write, or do basic math. I’d say we’re in a heap of trouble all right. And neither of the major parties can fix it. They don’t want to fix it in fact. We’ve spent years putting evil people into power and they’ve behaved according to their nature. OTOH it’s always darkest before the dawn, folks. Hang in there.
It’s simple, really: Read Solzhenitsyn’s ‘Gulag Archipeligo’. The parallels between the early 1920s and today in the US (and elsewhere) are eerily similar. Merrick Garland’s speech yesterday contained two bons mots: Domestic Terrorism = white Trump voters and number two was, ‘Turn in your radical friends/family members.”
71 million “terrorists”. Imagine that.
We are well down into Totalitarianism and The Camps are right around the corner.
Best become very, very grey.
Good luck, all.
definitely gonna need it…..
One way to change it is choosing homeschool or private school for your children. Check out https://classicalchristian.org/?v=a44707111a05 to find a good Christian school near you that teaches grammar, logic and rhetoric at appropriate ages and teaches them to think critically from a Biblical perspective. I know not everyone is religious but “classical” Christian education is really a great choice and worked well for my kids.
The mention of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and his classic “Gulag Archipelago” is notable for another reason. See this fascinating story about it, and how it was first distributed via samizdat, the underground forbidden writings created on smuggled and unregistered manual typewriters:
The Man Who Killed Communism [Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, via samizdat] by Charles Burris
Now the monster question: Given the deep state’s financial attack on Daisy’s TheOrganicPrepper, will there come a day when some current technology version of samizdat might be the only way it can be distributed?
Lewis- I was just wondering the same thing. What are alternative forms of communication that are less traceable? It’s a good question to consider.
Fina and Lewis, look into the satellite phone store for communication…

What to do about our country’s decline in to a socialist/communist s—hole country?
Instead of throwing up your hands and giving up you will have to get out of your comfort zone and do some thing to help.
Number one is to realize that there are many people actually doing something to turn back the tide. The best example is Donald Trump and the new revitalized Republican Party. Call it the Grand Old Patriot party like Steve Turley says. Getting rid of RINOs like Congresswoman Liz Cheney is the first order of business so that the GOP is a party entirely of patriots not a party of less woke democrats.
Besides Donald Trump there are many other people in government and schools standing up to the globalist/Marxist agenda. They need your help and support. Do some research. You can run for political office or for the school board. At the very least you can reach in to your pocket and send these brave people money. They are out there there enduring the slings and arrows of the hate America msm which lies 24/7 about just about every thing.
Nothing but lies and divisive propaganda from the msm to pit American against American. Divide and conquer is a strategy that is as old as human civilization. Critical Race Theory which the Biden administration champions, is the most obvious example. And yes Biden and the democrats want to destroy this country.
A lot of brave people risked their lives and fortunes to make this great nation. Spending some of your hard earned money to support people who are standing up for your country and community is not too much to ask.
And stop listening to the msm. The New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, NBC News, MSNBC, CBS News, ABC News etc, are all part of the globalist brainwashing machine to make people hate their country and hate each other.
Dr. Steve Turley is an incredible optimist who will inspire you and give you much needed hope with positive news that you will never see from the msm.
And thank you Daisy Luther for this great article. “We interrupt your regularly scheduled brainwashing for a dose of reality…”. A great starting line for your article. You are a great writer.

the US will become a s)(ithole like Korea before long. Some of us that are not a member of the Idiocracy and are not dying to give their rights and power to the government, ARE willing to die before before surrendering our liberty
“This hill is my hill and while there are many like this one is mine and no one else’s …. “
What this defector said has been reality in America since 9/11. We’ve fallen rapidly. This war we’re in is not just physical, but primarily spiritual. Satan is the god of this world and his war is against God and his son Jesus.
Not many will come to this understanding yet, but as the days get abhorrently evil they will. America was once the beacon of light for the world and many envied her abilities and fear of the Living God. Yes, we’ve always had divisions between the Illuminists and Christians, but overall Americans feared God. Now our churches have become corrupt and conformed to the world. Now, we have lost liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
When the churches come under massive repentance, the layman will change by the work of the Holy Spirit. In the meantime, buckle up. The beginning of sorrows will eventually turn into Great Tribulation brought to you by the Satanic elite and their minions.
God knows this will not turn around and this is why his son Jesus made this dire prophecy in Matthew 24.
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
Repent, before you go off into eternity lost. Don’t wait for man to save this country, none can’t.
re: satellite phones, samizdat, one-to-one communication versus one-to-many
My mention of the samizdat concept was in reference to a one-to-many method of getting suppressed information delivered to a wide audience. My understanding of satellite phones is that they are strictly one-to-one, but I’m willing to be corrected if that technology now has wider capabilities.
Another thing about sat phones — they are a bit pricey, which would tend to keep a wide audience down.
I was thinking more along the lines of off-shore short wave radio broadcasts. Receiver prices for even pocket size models have come way down in recent years, FWIW. Back just after the OKC Murrah building bombing, retired USAF General Benton Partin was explaining over shortwave how the steel columns in that building could not possibly have been cut without the use of high speed military explosives (a development specialty of his while in active service), and that the slow speed explosive power from the ammonium nitrate fertilizer in Timothy McVeigh’s truck was not capable of doing that damage by itself. I was fortunate enough to be able to listen over shortwave to General Partin explain that live in real time. This link is about that history:
Are there other technologies today that could do the same job as shortwave did in that era? Probably but I’m not current on the possibilities. I know that a network of low altitude communication satellites are being readied for global phone access, but beyond that I don’t know.
I know that European privacy laws are a lot stronger than USA laws. Whether that might suggest a foreign website in case TheOrganicPrepper.com and/or preppersdailynews.com get shut down here may be worth investigating.
In any event, since the Beijing Biden regime has no moral hesitation about encouraging families to rat out their own family members and friends (ala East German Stasi or Nazi Gestapo style), anything is possible. And waiting for such SHTF before beginning defenses is probably not a good plan.
Please put the comments on the cartoon near the end, or better yet in a sidebar.
Place Yeonmi Park, front and center.
For those so interested, there are a couple of other groups/ sites that present information not found in msm. One is The Patriot Post. Lots of good articles & analysis from folks that are real journalists & who believe in our Constitution.
For those who recognize that this is also spiritual warfare against this nation, there is an excellent site & group; “Intercessors For America”. This organization was founded in the 1970s. I found them 2 years ago. The articles are factual, with suggestions on things to pray about from a Biblical standpoint. Unlike msm, there are often reports of good news; for example, states that are taking positive action to fight back against the gun bans, CRT & other agendas being generated in Washington DC.
We too are elderly & know we can’t do so much physically. We’ve prepared as well as we can. Our main job is to fight on our knees by praying for those who are on the frontlines. We support where we can on limited resources.
I ran a search to learn about that. I found a veritable foodfight of claims about it. Here’s a short summary of what I found:
1. Encryption of HAM communications is illegal.
2. That may be true but the feds don’t enforce it. (That was a somewhat dated discussion, long before the current administration was installed. So what might be enforced or not enforced today could be very uncertain.)
3..There definitely is equipment on the market that will encrypt your messages, but unless the person receiving your message also has that same encryption gear installed on his/her HAM transceiver, your message will be unreadable.
4. This is still one-to-one type communication. It could be very useful for message content with covert needs, but there’s no way that a wide audience (like Daisy’s) is all or mostly going to have both the HAM equipment and the same model of encryption/decryption gadget installed.
5. I found claims that in emergency situations, HAM transmissions can be done even without a license. Some people were even advising to avoid getting a HAM license for exactly that reason.
Thank you Lewis for the information.
Obviously we had encryption in the Marines, but I do not know much about HAM.
Great article. Hits home a little too closely for most the Silent Majority.
Just this past week; my wife & I have had to; give a piece of our minds to both our Wells Fargo Bank LBGTXYZ Marketing email; and our Reginal Electric Corp. newsletter stating “they were shutting down the last Coal Powered Plant in our region”.
In short, we told the bank to “Trust the Science & Come-on-Man” there ARE ONLY 2 Sexes!
And we told the Elect Corp. “Remember the (Texas) Alamo”. We live on the 47th Parallel. A big Texas Freeze up like last Winter here, were we live; would result in massive Deaths & and $Billions in pipe freezing damage! Keep in mind most of the Great USA & Canada are separated by the 49th parallel.
This rot has been going on for a long time. We are brainwashed into “Trust the experts”. “Don’t think, they have done the thinking for you.” That message is backed up constantly in schools, and in universities one can be denied a degree if he doesn’t toe the line. That is true even in the “hard sciences” like physics. Everywhere we look, critical thinking is discouraged. Along with that, we’re on the receiving end of lies.
Modern science was developed in the 1500s. How many of you know that one of the primary influencers for the development of modern science was Martin Luther? One of Luther’s contributions was a rejection of Aristotle’s philosophy (trusting the experts), rather go back to the source and think critically. So the early modern scientists threw off the deadweight of Aristotle’s philosophy, thought critically and went to the source. For Luther, the source was the Bible, for the early modern scientists, the source was nature itself. Luther even indirectly was involved in the Copernican revolution, in that two of his co-workers worked with Copernicus and got his book published.
How many know that Charles Darwin rejected modern science, rather went back to pre-modern science of Aristotle’s teachings and rehashed Aristotle’s ideas on evolution? But what happens when anyone questions Charles Darwin and his followers? Critical thought not allowed.
Einstein’s theory of relativity is based on the proposition that the speed of light in a vacuum is a constant. What happens to his theory when actual measurements show that the speed of light varies? No, Einstein is the expert, you’re not allowed to question him.
In field after field, critical thought is not allowed. I see it in history, in linguistics and probably in most fields. Follow the “experts” or you’re a nobody.
We’re constantly told what to think, not how to think. This young Korean decries this close-minded indoctrination. We should too.
Per R.O. in the long-running fallacy of “trusting the experts”
Excellent analysis. Such tragedies also apply to medicine. The belief at the time in bloodletting was what killed George Washington. More than a century later in 1911 the US army adopted a system of mandatory vaccinations, of which the Rockefeller Institute in 1918 took gross advantage. Their poorly tested vaccine was first jabbed into defenseless GIs (who couldn’t say no) in training for WWI at Ft. Riley, Kansas. They immediately began getting sick.
As that disease went through at least two even more deadly mutations and eventually killed somewhere between 50 and 100 million people worldwide (including more German soldiers than combat), nothing stopped the Rockefellers from selling their vaccine to many foreign countries. Of course wartime censorship was ongoing in all involved countries … so when news of this new ailment first appeared in newspapers in neutral Spain that gave the US Wilson government a convenient excuse to cover for the Rockefellers and blame the deaths on the “mysterious origin Spanish Flu.”
That lie continues even through the present day. Sound familiar? Do you think there’s any truth in bio-warfare developed viruses and vaccines that mess with your DNA and cause deadly blood clots that make the eugenics obsessives pushing this oh so happy?
But I’m not sure how much of this post to believe. If you research it you find North Korea has 4 tv stations. Only one is internationally broadcast…maybe that’s what is meant, They have the state tv, 2 educational channels, and one sports channel. They have 12 radio stations. Sure, not as many as the US has to spread their state propaganda, but enough.
How can this lady even recognize what “critical thinking” (popular terminology for trendy USAins . We like to call it common sense) is if she wasn’t taught it? Seems more than a little contrived.
Oh no the scary “ALL CAPS”
I think there are several things potentially coming that will make for a rough ride, and the masses are oblivious to the dangers we face.
They’ve got us by the cajones through control over employment, audio and video surveillance everywhere (including the workplace) and being surrounded by brainwashed cronies. I’ve met young, homeschooled adults at places I’ve worked, and they have fallen into the same Marxist behavior of canceling and abusing traditionalists like myself. I’ve lived in the northeast, the southeast and the midwest. It is everywhere. They abuse you psychologically until the point of exhaustion and perhaps, compromised health. My experience is they want you to flip out so they can fire you. I have a little hope, but only in somehow finding good people who will hire me and treat me like a human being. They bait you into revealing personal information and your views that contradict the brainwashed party line. Homeschooling is happily growing, but that would still take 15-20 years from now of having any significant effect. We need real state secession and removal of income and property taxes. If you can hang your hat somewhere without fear of losing your property, that is a huge start toward freedom and morality.
