If #AllLivesMatter, Maybe It's Time to Stop Laughing at North Korea

Bonny Brooks | Posted 11.24.2015 | World

Hands up -- who changed a Facebook pic to show solidarity with Paris? Raged about the barbarity of the gunmen? Or even, for those "tragedy hipsters" among us, bemoaned the relative indifference of Westerners to other brutal attacks in Lebanon, Kenya and now Nigeria?

In both American Sniper and that other controversial recent release The Interview, Americans are the heroes and foreigners are the targets. And not just foreigners but furriners: an undifferentiated group of people so alien in their ways that they are practically subhuman.

These simple steps should reduce the amount of YouTube videos by at least half. I'll be back next January with more "site cleaning" suggestions. In the meantime, pet owners can practice restraining themselves from videotaping their adorable animals frolicking in snow.

If you're going to defy protocol and encroach on the mandate of the president as commander-of-chief, why stop at Netanyahu? There are plenty of other controversial guest stars that Boehner and company could bring in to bat for their confrontational agenda.

On Fox News, the most unpatriotic thing you can do, aside from supporting the President of the United States, is to criticize a war movie. Now actor Seth Rogen is being heavily criticized for a tweet he posted.

Bosnia's Muslim leadership answers without ambiguity. We have to worry more about those who would appoint themselves to defend God against presumed insult than those purportedly committing the offense.

A small, poor nation, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea should be an international nullity, irrelevant to global affairs. Yet it again dominated headlines in the U.S. with the hacking of Sony and cancellation of the broad release of the movie The Interview, a comedy featuring the assassination of the younger Kim.

One conclusion directly related to cyber vulnerabilities is learning from how the monetary, banking and financial systems adapted over the decades to fend off crooks and scamsters. A second conclusion is that "ready, fire, aim" is not always a good response to every crisis.

Grace Ji-Sun Kim

Why did Sony decide to produce such a satirical, comedy about North Korea and its leader? That will be my perpetual question as stereotyping continues within the western world against Asians. This Orientalism and the concept that the East is weak, feminine, and seeking domination need to be eliminated from western mindset.

The Sony Hack was not even one of the ten largest hacks of 2014. Though large, it actually only ranks as the 33rd largest of the year in terms of number of records breached. EBay actually suffered the largest data breach of 2014 (and the second largest since 2005) with more than 150 million records compromised.

In 2015, on the cusp of our presidential election year, courage can take us to being above party politics, putting employee good above profit to shareholders, demonstrating caring and responsibility to our neighbors, being true to our word, valuing life, and exhibiting love.

That the North Korean leadership takes American comedy as an act of war is a particular feature of the role information and technology has assumed in 21st century life. Kim Jong-Un cannot countenance Seth Rogen and James Franco's antics in "The Interview," however fantastic they may be.
