Save North Koreans

Plan to help save North Koreans lives
  [vote for,

An international effort built of several stages to save North Koreans (and the globe).

First half:

Stage 1: Several western countries accept North Korean labor for a higher price than paid to NK by the Kuwaitis, Saudis and Abu Dhabi for slave labor.

Stage 2: Large labor camps established in the west to accept these people, with good living conditions, knowing that their family members are held hostage by the regime. These should accept MOST of the men of North Korea.

Stage 3: Every penny paid to the regime is listed, and if none goes to the worker's family, is noted as stolen money. Any country including Russia and China, doing (illegal) business with NK, will become eligible for payback claims, for assisting in hostage taking, and for any damages that happen to these people's families.

Second half: Somehow use this to pay these hundreds of thousands of workers or maybe even millions of workers, a fair pay, and break out of the Kim Jung grip all at once.

NK slavery http://www.telegrap...road-as-slaves.html

       Or... as I once heard most eloquently stated: turn NK into a self-illuminating glass-paved parking lot.   

       As much as I like the humanitarian nature of your idea, I think it's all but inevitable that the world will end up dealing with a nuked-Korea, especially with the 'merkin government about to be put in power.   

       My time machine tells me it will happen.... September 17th of 2017.

       It's just like that over here, top-down societies, I blame Confucius...   

       Persecution of moslems in Myanmar, fishermen dying on Thai trawlers of beriberi..Laos has a parliament, they are allowed to debate stuff, but no power to change anything...

       Idealistic wishful thinking.   

       [pash], you need to deal with the world as it is, not as you would like it to be.

       If you want to call taxation theft you've got a long road ahead.
Voice, Dec 30 2016

       [Voice], but it's not taxation! NONE of the wages go to the families. See link.   

       [8th], "deal with the world as it is"? So what is HB for?

       A more effective policy might be to pressure the Saudis, Kuwaitis, and Abu Dhabibibibis.
