We should flood their networks with The Interview. We should commandeer their information delivery systems and wake kim jong un up with his most embarrassing secrets, emailed to him and broadcast to the world. We should fill their airwaves with historical documentaries, and their radios should sound all the best American music history has to offer. The best speeches in our history, should be played, and it should all be subtitled with excellent Korean translations. We could replace their history archives with actual history archives, including their own. There could be interviews with former citizens who escaped and Korean historians recounting what we know of the terror that has been their government.
