The consequences of ideas: North Korea

Those who imagine that ideas have no consequences need to consider North Korea.

Pyongyang was once known as the "Jerusalem of the east." A center of vibrant Christianity in the early 20th century, Pyongyang is now the capital of the world's only remaining Stalinest regime, a brutal, cruel dictatorship which deals with its inhabitants with harsh, unremitting destruction. And the brunt of oppression lands on Christians there.

This video is not directed at the oppression of Christians, but it is a sobering reminder of what our brothers and sisters in North Korea live with (and die with) every day.
