Indoctrination of The Young Doesn’t Get Better

August 15, 2007

North Korean animation is THE BOMB. “Squirrels and Hedgehogs” is like a cuter and even MORE militaristic GI JOE, since the latter’s characters are superheroes, and not ordinary people, which the characters in “Squirrels and Hedgehogs” are, thereby they are removed of the over-the-topness of GI JOE and make the militarism even more palpable, whereas […]
