Why The West Is Spooked By The DPRK's Mineral Reserves

quote [ Analysis Episode #8 - DPRK Minerals ]

Reminder that pretty much everything your average westerner knows about the DPRK is sourced via an org related to the CIA and/or a Right Wing Libertarian Thinktanks.

quote [ The pursuit of a better future involves questioning the very foundations of our current society, including the forms of technology that uphold it. Today we explore Ivan Illich's concept of an "overgrowth of tools," and the need to develop new tools, transform existing ones, and even discard some altogether. ]

Some interesting recommendations to add to my reading list.
