Venn diagram of freedom's threats: Kim Jong un-reliable North Korea intersects Amazon servers

Austin Bay on

Strategists know trying to see the geopolitical battlefield from an adversary's point of view is useful, particularly the view of an adversary with a couple of nuclear weapons and a legacy of provocative violence.

I can't really enter the mind of North Korean dictator and chain-smoking lard tub Kim Jong Un, so his point of view, rendered as a geopolitical scenario, must be surmised.

Surmised, however, within reason. Invoking reason in these sketchy times stretches credulity, but I've reports attributable to Kim himself and sourced by somewhat reliable wire services, reliable South Korean media and subservient North Korean propaganda outlets, the last of which, of course, are Un-reliable.

Full stop. The pun captures North Korea's vicious totalitarian context. Unfortunately, it has American domestic political and constitutional implications. Examples: Jeff Bezos-Reliable Amazon servers shutting down free speech outlet Parler. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi-Reliable New York Times/CNN/mainstream media refusing to cover the Hunter Biden-communist China corruption story until after the election.

Background. Amazon's Bezos-Reliable servers denied center-right social media platform Parler access to its servers. That constitutes a brutal, hideous attack on free speech, which is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. A nuke attack? In digital and financial terms, yes, it was a nuke wipeout of Parler.

If you don't know what I just referenced, then you live in an information-contaminated silence zone -- with Amazon the likely silencing system.

 

I urge you to escape the destructive silence.

Unlike North Korea, Amazon didn't threaten a nuke attack on free speech. Amazon just did.

We return to the Korean peninsula. The physical devastation of North Korean nuclear weapons is a threat to life in East Asia and North America, and a threat to the global economy, as nuking South Korea, Japan, the U.S. -- aye, China -- would murder millions and cause a global economic depression.

Alas, billionaires like Bezos, Amazon's tech and marketing white-guy genius and biggest shareholder, would likely sleaze through the nuclear economic wreckage.
