For the sixth straight weekend, hundreds of thousands of Koreans came out in Seoul (and with other Korean cities estimates approaching 2 million people on the streets) to demand the resignation of President Park Geun-hye. This Saturday December 3, the protests marched on the Presidential Blue House. The three opposition parties introduced a bill last week to impeach the President, supported by a majority of the parliament (171 of 300 members), for abuse of power in an influence-peddling scandal. But the vote needs a 2/3 majority and requires a rump of Park's Saenuri party to break and support the opposition to pass the bill.

These are the largest demonstrations in South Korea since the pro-democracy movement of the 1980s.

“Todo lo que se pueda contar de Corea parece mentira. Por ejemplo, en las fotografías se ven gentes con el odio, ese odio de los pueblos cuando llega a la parte mas profunda del ser, que se ve en las fotos de cuevas donde se meten 200, 300 y 400 niños, de una edad de 3 o 4 años, se asesinan allí con fuego y otras veces con gas. Los descuartizamientos de las gentes, matar a mujeres embarazadas a bayonetazos para hacerle salir el hijo de las entrañas, quemar heridos con lanzallamas… Las cosas más inhumanas que pueda imaginar la mente fueron realizadas por el ejército norteamericano de ocupación”. Ernesto Che Guevara, viaje a Corea del Norte, año 1960. ... read full story / add a comment

A unique self full-filling prophecy in humans is termed as the Pygmalion Effect, which says the person likely to become he is believed or perceived to be. The main idea concerning The Pygmalion Effect is that if you believe that someone is capable of achieving greatness, then that person will indeed achieve greatness.
