Ron Paul: “I Fear Our Government More Than North Korea”
Ron Paul, former Congressman, presidential candidate, and medical doctor, brought up a simple, yet chilling point about the hysteria surrounding the Korean war propaganda being shoved down the collective throats of American citizens as of late. During an interview with the Mises Institute’s Lew Rockwell, Ron Paul bluntly noted, “I fear our government more than North Korea.” And, he’s right. If you don’t know why he’s right, ask yourself this question, “What has North Korea done to you?”
For decades, the insane dictatorship that is North Korea has been making hollow threats — none of which they have ever carried out since the Korean war. Since the Korean War, North and South Korea have engaged in incursions and sabotage within each other’s respective countries, but North Korea has never attacked anyone else since.
As Ron Paul pointed out, the fact that North Korea is not an actual threat to the US is of no interest to those buying into the fear mongering war propaganda. Even the non-interventionists who supported Trump are buying into the sheer apocalyptic lunacy that would be a war with North Korea.
“The propagandists are winning,” said Paul. “It’s almost like Saddam Hussein again, is going to come and ‘get us,’” Paul said as he recalled the lies the US used to convince Americans to invade Iraq.
Paul then points out how all of these ‘threats’ the US government constantly bombards us with are not really threats at all. Rather, the US government itself is the greatest threat to our freedom and well being.
