That's only one of many, many scenarios. In my opinion, the most
likely scenario is a world war that will make the Korean war only a
sideshow. If Trump did as you say, it would create an enormous
backlash in South Korea, and might even trigger a war. ("Law of
unintended consequences.")


The only way the "elite" can remain calm is in their "thorough" knowledge that WHEN (not if) the Big Boogaloo Bang and Blammo Show gets rolling they will be able to fly away to their "resorts" (the place one escapes to as a last "resort") and "survive just fine".

I think they may be a bit delusional as to how "thorough" their knowledge actually is, and how "safe" their "resorts" are, but that's not my problem, so I'm not gonna spend much time worrying about it. :)

If "speaking truth" simply gets everyone closer to "oblivion" faster than not doing so, why speed up the process?

So in the end, probably several million people might be killed, but that would
leave many millions more to live in slavery and destitution under the
Kim regime.


That is how South Korea ends? Why doesn't President Trump say anything about this publicly? He should speak directly to the Korean people. President Moon is hated by large segments of Korean society. He should say something today. Why is he silent?

Lots of people. Figure it out for yourself. Suppose North Korea
sends its million-man army into Seoul. Will Seoul surrender, or will
there be a fight? Even if a nuclear weapon is used, that only has a
kill radius of about 10 miles, so much of the city center would be
destroyed, but the huge surrounding area would survive. So in the
end, probably several million people might be killed, but that would
leave many millions more to live in slavery and destitution under the
Kim regime.

And I really mean it when I say that doing nothing may be the best choice, since no place is really safe from a world war, so why bother?


Then who will survive?

The thing is, you really have to think about what you want to do. In
my case, I've decided that I really don't want to live through a world
war. I live in Cambridge Mass, next to MIT, and the ideal scenario
for me would be that one of the first Chinese missiles kills me
quickly and painlessly. Death is, after all, a part of life.

What this web site and Generational Dynamics give you is an insight
into what's going to happen. Some people ask me if it's better off
just to ignore all this stuff. My answer is that it probably is,
since you can't do anything about it, and you might as well just enjoy
life as normal.

So if you live in Seoul, just forget that you ever came to this site,
and go one with your happy day to day life as usual. Quite honestly,
in the end, it will probably be the best choice.

On the other hand, if you do want to do something about the situation,
then you have to stop being scared, make a plan, and do it. I've
known people who have become survivalists, and are now living in some
unknown bunkers somewhere in the midwest USA.

If you're a young male, you might take this advice:

So his advice is to pick a country, move there, and move in
with some reputable woman.

Maybe that option isn't available to you. If you're able to leave
Korea, then you have to decide whether you should do that and, if so,
when and where. Or, as I understand it, southern South Korea is
likely to be a lot safer than Seoul, so you might consider taking your
family and moving there.

Once you've figured out what your choices are, you have to pick one of
them and decide to live with it. If you decide to do nothing, live
with that. If you decide to move somewhere, live with that. Just
make up your mind and do it. And I really mean it when I say that
doing nothing may be the best choice, since no place is really safe
from a world war, so why bother?

That's pretty much what I was saying. The only mystery

Being the persnickety "definitions oriented" goofball that I am, I must ask, "What do you MEAN by disturbing?"

The reason I ask that is that "disturbing" is rather generic, and I'm interested as to specifically HOW it is disturbing?

It seems (!?) that you're relatively new around here, and that may be a large part of the reason for your question, as the inevitable-but-not-time-determined (as per GD Theory) upcoming world war is hardly news to anyone here.

Anyway, I just wanted to get into the head, as it were, of someone (you) who's just now been exposed to the "uncomfortableness" that GD Theory creates.

:) Aloha nui! <shaka!>
