We all know that this is practically impossible given the current regime. However, I do believe that the rest of the world can do much more to help with human trafficking as a result of North Korean’s Dictatorship, such as offering formal shelters for those crossing the border. As to the right to freedom of movement, it requires policy changes within the state. The truth is that the North Korean government has been violating human rights for decades. Actions were taken to change this cruel reality.
The words, “Our future and hope depend on you. People’s fate depends on you, Comrade Kim Jong-Il! We cannot live without you. Our country cannot exist without you!” are sung by North Korean citizens everywhere ("No Motherland Without You."). Throughout Kim Jong-Il’s reign, this song was one of the many sources of propaganda used to brainwash their country’s citizens.
Nevertheless, to me, my first impression about Korea is Korea alphabet. It is so interesting and it is a motivation brings me start to learn the Korea language. When we learn a language, one thing that comes together is the culture which makes me know more about Korea.

Protest leaders like Rosa Parks, Nelson Mandela and John Lennon all had the same goal; to bring attention to the injustice taking place in society. Nico Woodward talks about how protest is good for democracy because it shows the injustices and disagreements in the government (1); consequently, it is crucial to bring disagreements to the forefront of society so that everyone 's thoughts can be heard. Most of the time, minority groups that struggle to have their voices heard because there are outnumbered, and it is important that these groups are heard and not marginalized. People can be unaware of major issues because it is not something that they experience daily; therefore, it is pivotal that oustanding problems are brought front and center.

•Ethical problems with civil disobedience: Civil disobedience can be a universal concept, in other words, civil disobedience is understood by all; however, civil disobedience has been corrupted and has also been used for hope, risks, and action-good and bad. For civil disobedience to be ethically wrong or right, one must take a step back, and see who exactly is the question being asked to-a women who fought for equality and rights in the 1960’s, a politician, police, or any government official who despised those who began sit-ins, rallies, and riots, upper or lower class, especially colored races, for instance, African Americans.

The setting of which Demi Lovato grew up in was one of loving family members, but also one of hateful peers that didn’t respect her for who she was.
While Paradise of the Blind can be seen as a political statement, it also holds true to a powerful story about the pressures of family and culture. By using characters that represent divergent political viewpoints, Huong is successful in creating struggle and conflicts in Hang’s family, along with exemplifying the universal skirmish between Communism and Capitalism that is illustrated by Hang’s family to the readers. Facts like Hang being an exported worker from Vietnam displays these traits, along with it conveying how Soviet Communism has impacted the families and their lifestyles in Vietnam. The fight for power seems to be a very strong theme that overrides these chapters, from characters like Uncle Chinh who are corrupted and abuse leadership, to characters like Aunt Tam and Ton who are almost power hungry, portrayed by Huong in a very meaningful way. Duong Thu Huong writes Paradise of the Blind intending to expose the inadequate system of Communism and demonstrate the adverse effects felt by the people affected.
Additionally, her book has inspired many others and has proved that with enough willpower, “ proves that anyone and everyone has the power to fight for change and inclusive freedom for people all over the world” (Vernon).
