“Many people in the United States know little about North Korea. In April 2017, only 36% of people asked even knew where to find it on a world map. Those who did correctly locate North Korea tended to favor diplomatic and non-military strategies compared with those who did not. More education is needed about North Korea as well as about ways in which people can support diplomacy over military solutions.”
Teacher, writer, and organizer Gwyn Kirk recently published an important piece in the Social Justice Journal describing the historical context within which United States-Korean relations have developed and why talking it out is the only realistic option to reduce tensions and the potential disaster of nuclear war.
