THE SQUASHED PORCELAIN DRUM
If you're going to North Korea, be sure to say "Hi!" to the Squashed Porcelain Drum. It's squashed, yet not broken! Now anything is possible.
Being pressed makes it stronger. Even though it can now hold less for itself, but it could bear the whole weight of the world.
In the last century, the world has moved ahead at Korea's expense. Although North Korea is moving in the opposite direction, her defiance has turned suffering and devastation into victories.
The current crisis in finance and environment vindicates North Korea's faith in going in her own direction.
Who in this confrontational world would make it a habit to releasing the enemy humans but hold their weapons as prisons. Besides the spy ship Pueblo, North Korea even went about to catch her a torpedo and imprison it to make the sea safer.
While the world has turn the social ranking of scholars, farmers, laborers and merchants around, making us all slave to money, North Korea has not only preserve the old tradition, but also eliminated the merchant class.
The old work ethic of no pain no gain, has kept the whole populace in North Korea fit and while continuously reaching for ever higher athletic potential. To hit home on tradition, North Korea even found nothing out of the ordinary when starvation came alone with famine. Then, her action exposes the predatory nature of the rest of the world, when, instead of coming to her aid, the rest anti-traditional, materialistic world for using the opportunity for propaganda purpose.
The Mass Game, a collective effort to display the country's aspiration, has been a success story that's void of any financial consideration. It charges the entry fees according to what the individual spectator could afford, ranging from $450 to 0, all ushered in without regard to their true preferences. In a way, the audience becomes the involuntary participants in the spirit of collectiveness.
It teaches that public performance should be, above all, for one's own fitness, and the spectators are there for a good dose of fitness indoctrination.
The missing link in Asia is an undersea tunnel between Korea and Japan. That's a job for anybody who can build the Pyongyang Metro.
Building atomic bomb is wrong for anybody, for any excuse. But if it's for the sake of getting rid of the bomb, then we need to make a special exemption. In fact, we should all be grateful to North Korea for the possibility of being the first country to set an example to the rest to dismantle a viable nuclear weapon program. In so doing, North Korea would lead the world down the path of a nuclear weapon free world.
Yes, the Squashed Porcelain Drum is here to make anything possible.
