Land of the FREE
If you voted for Biden and follow his presidency, then you’re aware of the fact that surveys show that his popularity has never been lower. Between inflation and the war with Russia, Americans are not overly excited about what the Biden administration has been able to accomplish thus far, especially with his Build Back Better plan (Biden’s campaign platform) not going through.
In America, when things are going badly, the people have alternatives: They can elect a different politician to lead them.
In North Korea, for example, this just isn’t the case. This country of 26 million citizens gives internet access to only a few thousand, and when I say internet, I refer to a few dozen websites, all of which are monitored or owned by the government.
It’s remarkable to consider, but these people are literally restricted from performing their own due diligence of the world… whatever is told by the government is what they know.
In America, presidents are mocked, ridiculed, criticized, replaced, fired and aren’t given anything, without the approval of the people.
Freedom of speech and the right to vote are seen as obvious to most of us, but not in North Korea.
The one thing that these types of dictatorships do create, inadvertently, are very talented people in their professions. Because the fear factor is so high, whenever the state recruits individuals for special tasks, there’s virtually no limit to the sacrifice the government is asking the recruits to make.
The North Koreans recruited very young children to their hackers group called “Lazarus.” These hackers were able to damage “Sony Entertainment” in 2014, as well as the German Federal railway system and $400M in Bitcoin in 2021 alone.
To give you an idea, the “Lazarus” hackers were about to rob the National Bank of Bangladesh for $1bn and they would have succeeded, had it not been for a fluke. The recipient bank was on Jupiter Street, which just so happened to be the name of a sanctioned Iranian ship, and that flagged the transfer.
The “Lazarus” group also attacked a hacker in January 2021, who goes by the name “P4x.” He claims he retaliated in January 2022, and even provided a screenshot.
If P4x attacked North Korea’s entire internet system in January as he claimed, he blocked it out during the time the country was performing its missile tests.
He says he did it while watching the movie Aliens in his pajamas, eating spicy corn snacks.
In this day and age, one person can inflict colossal damage, as we’re witnessing in Russia or with Biden’s remark on Putin that sparked diplomatic concerns.
The difference is that while North Korea is an awful dictatorship and Russia is a weird kind of regime, the U.S. remains a strong country, when it comes to the power of its citizenry to impact its political future.
Keep your gold — it’s the ultimate unit of account that survives the tribulations of the ancient and modern world.
