I was thinking about what it must be like to live life in North Korea these days. Forget the hunger, the cold, the isolation. Imagine being told every day that a massive military assault is imminent.
So it goes under the "leadership" of Kim Jong Un, who has been relentlessly informing the North Korean people that an American military assault is imminent, and that it will lead to thermonuclear war. KJU can get away with belligerent rhetoric in a nation where no outside sources of information are available with which to contrast his predictions. But imagine how it affects your day-to-day. Would you have children? Learn a trade? Invest? What's the point of living in the first place? Want to go eat the bark off some trees?
Further proof hell exists: we human beings have made it ourselves.
