Personal Response

Our world is not perfect. These examples of "intoleance" all over the world have proven to us the true blemishes of society. These three horrific situations from the past, from a list of many, are similar in more ways than one. They all thrive from the difference of belief. They are all a form of oppression due to another's opinion. For instance, the Holocaust was caused due to Hitler's own marred views, along with Pol Pot in Cambodia, and King Jong Un in North Korea. They all strived to form their own perfect race, government, or utopia. However, interestingly enough, what I've also come to notice is that no matter how morally wrong someone is they will still gather a following. During the Holocaust nearly Several countries sided with the Hitler ' the Nazis. 72,248 troops joined the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia. This just comes to show that people strive to become part of a larger group, and are willing to conform to please their authority.

North Korea

~North Korea falls under a communistic totalatarian dictatorship.~King Jong Un currently has rule over North Korea, in succession of his father King Jong Il's death.~ The photo (right) shows just how isolated the North Korean country is from the rest of the world.~ North Korean people live in poverty, are cut off from their own beliefs ' are required to conform.~ All media and publications are state controlled, and unauthorized access to non-state radio or TV broadcasts is punished. ~ North Korea’s criminal code specifies that a death penalty can be applied for offenses such as “crimes against the state” and “crimes against the people.”~A total of 2.8 million people have starved to death at last count at the end of 1997.
