NK Defector Warns about American Universities

“In June 2021 a North Korean defector, Yeonmi Park–turned Columbia University graduate–went even further, saying of the state of Ivy League education, ‘Even North Korea is not this nuts.’ She continued with a dire warning, saying the United States’ future ‘is as bleak as North Korea’ unless our self-loathing education system is overhauled. Think about that! A North Korean defector–who experienced the most brutal, repressive, and anti-American regime in the world until she was thirteen years old–believes our elite schools are even more nuts than North Korea. That should be a wake-up call. The condemnation of dissent may look different–North Korea prefers concentration camps, America prefers cancellation, marginalization, and labeling–but the reality is the same. In America today, private thoughts are not allowed to translate into public speech, provoking the question, Are we really free? Are our kids?”

CONCLUDING NOTE: As long as public schools continue to operate as humanistic brainwashing institutions, nothing on the political or judicial side will have a lasting impact on America. There must be true revival in many churches, and it must be led by born again, Spirit-filled, truth-loving, tradition-hating, courageous pastors. I know some of these men, and I pray daily and earnestly for their number to increase.
