North Korean Defector Yeonmi Park on Communist Tyranny and ‘the Suicide of Western Civilization’
“How do you fight to be free when you don’t know you’re a slave?”
I sit down with North Korean defector Yeonmi Park, author of “In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom.”
We discuss the North Korean regime’s brainwashing tactics, the parallels between her experiences in North Korea and what she now sees in America, and the “suicide of Western civilization.”
Park’s memoir recently made it into Amazon’s weekly list of 20 best-selling nonfiction books, nearly six years after she published it.
