I wouldn’t fault anyone for responding to these depictions of North Korean prison camp life drawn by escapees with righteous indignation (via The North Korea Blog). It’s simply unforgivable.

As a progressive, I won’t take take the bait conservatives offer when they draw a simplistic choice between condoning human rights abuses and calling for a unified Korean state – presumably by deploying military force, to overthrow the Kim regime. There are other options. Still, one has to reflect upon the social and evolutionary dynamics, that make it possible for human beings to commit these crimes against other human beings.
