a dunk on a deserving target, from the birdsite
the whole thing about north korea being a backwoods, starving nation comes from the US intentionally destabilizing north korea's economy after the soviet union collapsed, taking advantage of floods and drought to starve north korea. they wouldn't let NK import oil to run their tractors, and pulled schemes to trade small amounts of food for cow tails--which was a plot to make the cows unusable as farm labor and cause further famine
this is what an american air force general had to say about them, from there, bombing north korea's infastructure to make things even worse
WHEW, this guy.
1) The literary scene isn't particularly far left.
2) I'd bet a lot of money the critique he got was on "male gaze," NOT on male voice. Men are doing JUST fine as writers right now. Women are having a moment, but men are getting deals.
