“Mirakle”

I wasn’t going to touch the story about “nut rage”, but I can’t seem to bring myself to deny long-time reader and all-around temptress, Dolly, who requested something be written.

I wasn’t going to touch the story because, let’s face it, anyone who knows anything about Klown knows that this isn’t news. Not even the scale of it is news. This is your typical, mundane Tuesday afternoon in Klown.

It’s so very fucking traditional.

Let’s do a quick recap:

Prior to the (most recent) Japanese colonization in 1910, Klown was a stinking, festering mud pit of lean-to shanties, teeming with unwashed masses of disease-bearing serfs. It was a dogpile of illiterate, toothless farmers shitting in the same kinds of holes in the ground in which they buried their “food”stuffs. And no, this isn’t hyperbole. A filthy cesspool of ignorance and peasantry.

Today it’s pretty much exactly the fucking same, only with some concrete, electric lights and PVC-clad whores with cosmetically-obtained garden spade chins.

Anywhore, the Japanese came in and industrialized the place. Building amazing and miraculous things that the locals had never imagined, things such as roads, plumbing, hospitals with soap, factories, toilets, power plants… they forcibly dragged the palsy child of Klown out of the feces-smeared cave of 15th century ignorance and into the 20th.

Thanks to the Americans, the Japanese were defeated in WW2 and forced to depart the Korean Peninsula (AKA “Asia’s Gallbladder”). They left behind all the infrastructure they had crafted over the previous 35 years. One can imagine the Klowns, simian like, grunting, pointing and poking with sticks the strange metal and stone remains, perhaps gnawing on the edge of a drill like an infant trying to assess whether a book is or is not edible.

In what might be called in the movie world Planet of the Klowns, preferential access to said infrastructure and factory equipment was given to ideological loyalists, and following a coup, the 60s and 70s saw the rise of the chaebol. A dictator hand-selecting family-owned conglomerates to not only have access to the Japanese-made infrastructure, but also the Japanese and American money that was flooding into the country.

Reparations and grants and loans flooded Klown, but it didn’t find its way to the masses. Some people hit the ghetto lottery, like Klowns who purchased worthless Gangnam real estate before the farmland was paved over and the value skyrocketed. But as a whole, South Korea hit the Cold War Proxy Lottery. Moronically-titled “Miracle on the Han”, there was nothing “miraculous” about it. Tons of unearned funds flooding into the hands of a corrupt government that, instead of improving the lives of the people (who were working in sweatshops for slave labor wages while doing, for free, the jobs civil servants should have been paid to do), gave the money to these Klown korportations in the form of guaranteed, low/no interest loans and kickbacks.

Miracle? The infrastructure was inherited, the money was misappropriated, the designs and methodology were straight up patent infringement, and all this was overlooked by Uncle Sam, who was right in the depths of the Red Scare and couldn’t be bothered trying to parent (great role model). Typically, the chaebol Klowns are all self-congratulatory over their economic success and market dominance though every single aspect of their empire was given to them on a platter, or stolen by them from far more deserving rivals.

From the outset, chaebols have been taught that the average Korean isn’t worth the foul phlegm they decorate every surface with. But who can blame them? This is Klown Kulture. There is no respect. There is no appreciation. There is no loyalty. To a Klown, other Klowns aren’t even human. So when this reptilian bitch, this walking, talking yeast infection, Cho Hyun-Ah, does as Klowns do to each other each and every day, I didn’t even bat an eye.

Par for the fucking course.

The reward for the Saemaeul Undong, Uri Nara generation was a giant ‘fuck you’. Impoverished grannies selling cooch for ten bucks while the big korporations ship jobs overseas and humiliate airline stewards. Korean-made products cost as much as double (or more) here in Korea compared to North America. The ‘thank you’ for delayed social growth, nay, social retardation, to make these chaebol families rich is to grossly overcharge the domestic consumers (over which they have a government-reinforced monopoly) to pad their thin margins as they remain competitive overseas against companies that actually innovate instead of stealing every single idea they have. And as unethical as western corporations (and humans in general when It comes to money and power) are, this just goes beyond in so many other levels. It’s pretty fucking sick.

This is all just one example of the many ways in which Klown is a giant lie.

Uri nara my ass. A bunch of goat-raping, syphilitic, simple-minded vassals, crawling and clawing, backstabbing and nut-raging. “Miracle”. Pft. The only miracle here is that the whole system hasn’t already imploded so dramatically that even the IMF couldn’t bail Klown out.

But that day is coming.

And when it does, anal pustules like Cho Hyun Ah and her ilk will do as so many propaganda-spewing inner party Klowns have done before them, take as much money as they can and emigrate it out of the kuntry. They’ll live their lives in luxury while the whole shithouse goes up in flames. Only the saving grace is that they won’t be throwing nuts in anyone’s face. Oh no. They’d best quickly learn how to shut their shout-talking Klown face holes and look over their shoulders.

Fuck Cho Hyun Ah. Fuck her father. Fuck the chaebol and fuck Klown.

These resource thieves have no value. With any luck, she’ll go off herself in a field somewhere like the Sewol owner. That way at least she’ll fertilize a few plants and help return some of the oxygen she’s stolen away from the rest of us.

Comfort Women

Ooooh!  Sensitive issue!  Hot button topic!

Is it though?  I mean, it is, but only in the sense that the crimes of the Nazis are “hot button topics”.

The Nazis industrialized death.  They did things so inhumane that sociologists and psychologists had to redefine their understanding of humanity.  Great, idealistic minds became pessimistic realists in the aftermath.  Today, however, the western world has moved on.  Actually, they moved on some time ago.  While there is always going to be a certain sideways resentment toward the Germans, intelligent and educated people who adhere to a principle called common sense realize that people are merely sheep who, unfortunately, are prone to blindly follow despotic leaders on occasion.  Any first year psych student has studied the classic experiments of psychologists like Milgram and Asche.  Their work on obedience and conformity show that, even without threat or incentive that approximately two thirds of all people will do what they are told to do by authority figures, even if that means casting aside human decency and morals.

Further, Germany and Japan are far from the only countries whose people have willingly, salivating-ly followed despots.  Obviously the masochistic North Koreans love their Kims, and the south has had a few monsters at the helm.  Just have a look at the Jeju Uprising (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeju_Uprising), a 1948 massacre of up to 60,000 people in the small island of Jeju by South Koreans.  Some 70% of the villages on the island were burned to the ground.  Victims were buried in mass graves.  This was more recent than WW2.  One interesting snippet: “The young men were executed, and girls were also executed after they had been gangraped over two weeks.”  Let’s come back to that one in a bit, shall we?

In Klown “culture”, Japan must never, ever be forgiven for the colonization of Korea.  Ever.  Now, before I continue, let me be clear in saying that I in no way condone the past actions of imperialist Japan.  I’m not excusing anything done in that time.  That being said… back to the “Japan is evil and must never be forgiven” thing.  There are few common topics in this vein for the glorious people of the Han:

Japan Desecrated Korea’s Wondrous Culture!

Koreans were poor, uneducated, largely illiterate farmers living in squalor prior to the Japanese colonization.  Unwilling to embrace concepts such as modern medicine, plumbing and engines, the absolutely dirt poor Koreans DID have such marvels as rotten (fine, “fermented”) cabbage, wine made from the feces of children (poo wine), architecture ripped off from the Chinese and a bastardized form of Confucianism (more on that in another post).  The Japanese came in and basically built the modern infrastructural foundation of the country, from roads to electrical wires to hospitals to schools.  Later, the Japanese economic model was copied… and by copied I mean that products that Japan was producing were plagiarized by Koreans and sold at an undercutting price due to the virtual slave labor wages at the time… establishing the foundation of “modern” Klown (where the Chinese are now cursed for copying Korean-made goods… oh the irony).  Basically, the parts of the Korean culture that were uniquely Korean – the clothing, the disgusting food, the traditional housing – were just fine.  The language was put at risk.  That is true… but anyone who has listened to a pair of Koreans “konversing” and a pair of Japanese people talking in human tones would have to wonder how much easier on the ears Klown would be if the Japanese had succeeded in replacing the local language with their own.  Korea before Japan? Mud hole. Korea after Japan? Somewhat better organized mud hole.  Is it that simple and cut-and-dry?  No.  Was the way in which the modern infrastructure of Klown established pleasant and morally sound?  No.  Was the “culture” here destroyed?  No.

Japan Has Never Apologized!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_war_apology_statements_issued_by_Japan  Shut the fuck up.

But… but… Comfort Women!

Ah-ha!  Okay, comfort women.  For those that don’t know, “comfort women” were women taken by the Japanese to serve as prostitutes for the soldiers.  Totally disgusting and reprehensible behavior.  Only some sick fucks would institutionalize prostitution on a large scale, right?  Right up there on par with forcing sexual favors in return for a livelihood, or frequenting underage sex workers, right?

As indignant and vocal as Klowns are about comfort women (nearly all of whom are now long dead as are the soldiers who raped them), it is hard, very hard, to sympathize.

In 2003 I read an article in a respected western newspaper that estimated the number of straight-up sex workers in Korea at 600,000+.  I’m going to guess that with kissing rooms, coffee whores and freelancers – not to mention what smartphone apps have done for the industry – that the number is well over a million today.  A million prostitutes!  In a tiny country that nearly no one wants to visit.  These prostitutes serve Korean johns almost exclusively (refusing service to non-Koreans).  They are EVERYWHERE – next to every school, near every family restaurant, along every boulevard.  Government workers, major corporations, SMEs, farmers… they all frequent whores.  It is very much socially accepted.

Forcing young women into sexual servitude is also part and parcel of the Klown entertainment industry.  It is occasionally forced into light by a high profile suicide, but it is generally understood that, if you want to be a professional entertainer, you must first be a professional in other ways.  Klown female entertainers are “sponsored” – for their clothes, [ineffectual] voice lessons and multiple plastic surgeries – by wealthy ajosshi.  This isn’t out of the goodness of the ajosshi’s blackened and cancerous heart.  The men in power in Korea find it a necessary part of life to cram cum down the gullets of young women who just want to sing and dance and act, certainly not find themselves the sperm repositories of the most unattractive men on earth.

Remember the quote above re: the Jeju Uprising? Self-explanatory here.

How about underage prostitutes?  Korean men are notorious as the leading consumer demographic for Southeast Asia’s whoring industry – particularly the underagers. As if having a million whores at home, all dedicated to serving none but the ajosshi, these Klowns still need to take their kimchi stink abroad to befoul some 12-year-old Filipinos.  Yeah, sickos from around the world do this, but the proportional representation by Koreans is telling.

So what’s the point?  Well, Koreans complaining about pressuring (even forcing) women into sexual servitude – and in particular getting all evangelical about abusing women via prostitution in general – is about as hypocritical as me complaining about someone not being culturally sensitive enough… or swearing too fucking frequently.  It’s akin to the recent US indigence over Chinese air pollution.  It’s like the Japanese whinging about disturbing, deviant German porn.

So now we have the world’s largest whoremongers complaining about the Japanese using women as whores – nearly a century ago, in wartime, under an insane dictatorship.  Building statues and staging protests… but why?  They’ll tell you it’s because Japan never apologized (see above).  If you debunk that, they’ll tell you it’s because there was no compensation for the victims. Well, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comfort_women#Apologies_and_compensation. It’s at this point that they’ll get red in the face and start screaming at you about the evils of prostitution… I’ve got $1,000 that says they’re standing less than 500m away from some form of brothel as they scream.

Move on Klown.  More civilized and socially-advanced countries own up to their failures in an effort to promote self-improvement.  In fact, isn’t self-criticism a Confucian tenet?  When you think about nations that still seethe and hiss over atrocities committed against their ancestors by some other national group’s ancestors to the point where healthy and normalized diplomacy is impossible, do you think about developed, first-world nations?  Or do you think about the Balkans?  Certain sub-Saharan African messes? The war-torn Middle East?  If Klown wants to be a first-world country, it’s going to take a lot more than some smartphones and window dressing; it’s going to take an upgrade in socialization from “3-year-old-throwing-tantrum” to “moderately well-adjusted grade 1 student”.
