Singaporean photographer Aram Pan has photographed one of the scariest countries on earth! North Korea, DPRK, the nuclear boogeyman, and member of the axis of evil club! And surprise, surprise, it’s not as shocking and scary as we’re conditioned to believe. The photographer’s DPRK 360 project is an attempt to capture the country as it is.
We in the west are ridiculously good at creating villains. Our great leaders believe that we silly little people need a boogeyman to keep us firmly attached to the government tit. We’re told to fear this country, fear that country, fear brown people, fear yellow people, fear this belief, fear that belief. We’re told to fear so many things that I sometimes wonder how regular sheep find the courage to step outside their houses each day. All the lies and propaganda are happily peddled by the pathetic mainstream media.
Anyway, I’m not saying I support the government of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, just as I don’t support the government of any other country on planet earth, I’m just saying throw your television out the window and stop believing in smiling psychopaths wearing suits!
I probably added more photographs of North Korea than I should have but I just wanted to show that it’s a country just as much as any other. Is it perfect? Probably not, but it most definitely does not look like the hell on earth that we’re told it is. See more on the DPRK project of Aram Pan at his website here. Also see his DPRK 360 Facebook page here (there’s plenty of interesting photographs on it).
