"The following broadcast will be shocking and cause distress for all citizens of the DPKR but our dear leader sees no other alternative than to illuminate the hidden perils of the Western Imperialists and their pernicious threat to our glorious nation. These revelations are the direct result of the miraculous visions of our eternal President who, in his eternal wisdom, commissioned intellectual observers to Seoul for evidence collection of this threat against the DPRK and innocent citizens worldwide. Our dear leader has now recalled one observer to his beloved homeland to share the discoveries he made under the invincible leadership of the eternal president."
“This is a film about psychological warfare. A specific type of warfare designed to distract, misinform, and anesthetize the brain. It has many disguises, and is used against every one of them.” (1:35:52)

"On a trip to visit family in Seoul in April, I was approached by a man and a woman who claimed to be North Korean defectors. They presented me with a DVD that recently came into their possession and asked me to translate it. They also asked me to post the completed film on the Internet so that it could reach a worldwide audience. I believed what I was told and an agreement was made to protect their identities (and mine).

Despite my concerns about what I was viewing when I returned home, I proceeded to translate and post the film on You Tube because of the film's extraordinary content. I have now made public my belief that this film was never intended for a domestic audience in the DPRK. Instead, I believe that these people, who presented themselves as 'defectors' specifically targeted me because of my reputation as a translator and interpreter.

Furthermore, I now believe these people work for the DPRK. The fact that I have continued to translate and post the film in spite of this belief does not make me complicit in their intention to spread their ideology. I chose to keep posting this film because - regardless of who made it - I believe people should see it because of the issues it raises and I stand by my right to post it for people to share and discuss freely with each other."


"I have translated this film, laid in the English voice over and subtitles, and on legal advice have blurred the identity of the presenter and/or blacked out certain elements."

Whose job it is... to keep people eating vast amounts of toxic food.

Yeah. But at least we have food.

There are a lot of really incredibly interesting perspectives in here, but just to warn everyone ahead of time there is also Holocaust denial, 911 trutherism, and a whole bunch of racism.
