South Korea is a modern advanced democracy with many personal freedoms, has a very high literacy rate and has fantastically advanced technology . It is the country of origin of Hyundai,Samsung , LG and many more high performance companies.|
All this has been achieved by huge efforts of government and citizens since the truce of 1953.
North Korea is communist, and is badly ruled by a long-term family dictatorship, power being passed from father to son. It's people are constantly brainwashed by propaganda messages portraying the family dictatorship as godlike, and the majority of citizens live in severe poverty, year after year. It's citizens are hungry,some have starved to death, yet the dictatorship spends huge sums of money on nuclear developments and a large military. I would say these are misguided priorities !!
This tense divide is actually between communism and democracy, but in this case, sadly, the people of the North and the people of the South were one unified country in the first half of the 20th century. South Korea deserves the help of it's global allies,Canada included, and this fight is part of the nasty long-existing "global democracy versus global communism" fight that has been necessary to battle against cruel communist dictatorships, regimes that cannot provide the neccessities of a humane life for their citizens.
