N.Korean refugees are Seoul’s best weapon

Sadly, it's a tool South Korean society neglects, as shown by stories of redefection to the North

A society can be judged on how its people vote with their feet. As of this writing, the Ministry of Unification estimates that there are more than 29,000 North Korean refugees currently residing in South Korea. Though it can be determined less accurately than the number of refugees residing in South Korea, it is estimated that there are approximately 200,000 refugees secretly residing in China.

The sheer number of people who have fled the tyrannical regime is the most damning evidence that proves North Korea is a dystopian nightmare that would have even made Orwell blanch.
