There are times when I’d like to take every lefty moron who waxes enthusiastically about the beauty of Communism and drop them in a North Korean political prison camp for just a week.  Not the 23 years that Shin Dong-hyuk endured, after being the only known person born in a prison camp who later escaped to the West.  For him, freedom was “just another word for grilled meat.”

What do most of us in the West complain about?  “There’s nothing on TV.”  “These fries are cold, dammit.”  “Man, I don’t feel like going to work today.”  “I can’t believe ______ didn’t win American Idol.”

How about if I cook this pork I stole, the guards will know and come and beat me and put me on half-rations, so I better eat it raw.

We know nothing of true privation, and most Americans are utterly cavalier about the freedom they possess living in the United States.  Oh, and what was Mr. Shin’s crime?  Two of his brothers had  defected to the South during the Korean War.

Shin’s memoir, “Escape From Camp 14,” should be required reading in every university, no, every high school in the country.

In this short but thoughtful essay, Judge Andrew Napolitano asks; “What if the Constitution no longer applied?”   Well worth your time to read.

Funny, and dead on target.  If you are not reading Day By Day every day, you should be.
