In the latest poll in our Underground Knowledge discussion group on Goodreads, we are asking members: Is North Korea a genuine threat to world peace? Or is it an exaggerated threat?  Interim results resoundingly show that most Undergrounders believe the threat is exaggerated.

 

The protagonists…self centred man babies?

 

Interim results show that 49% believe the North Korea threat’s exaggerated, 31% believe it’s genuine, and 20% are unsure.

Poll respondents’ comments make for interesting reading. Here’s one that caught our eye: “We have two self-centered man babies throwing tantrums and both with mental issues. Not a good combo for the world! It would not surprise me that our Grabber-In-Chief would use a war to try to use it as a diversion from the Russian scandal.”

 

Here’s a random sample of respondents’ comments from both sides:

Totally exaggerated…if not completely illusory. / NEWSWEEK: WHY THE NORTH KOREA THREAT IS GREATLY EXAGGERATED http://www.newsweek.com/2016/12/30/no… / POLITICAL VETERAN FEARS PROPAGANDA & FALSE FLAG ATTACKS COULD LEAD TO WAR WITH N. KOREA http://www.collective-evolution.com/2… / North Korea’s Exaggerated Threat https://chargedaffairs.org/north-kore

Not really sure but from what I have read on North Korea, it is one crazy dictatorship that has the entire Nation under threat all of the time. Very cruel. And this has been going on for many years under that weird family. I would not be in the least surprised if it was true that they were hoping to fire upon the Western Nations. Regardless of what you think of Trump, it is no excuse to pardon North Korea.

I think both genuine and exaggerated threat.

This threat is very, very real as the result of Obama’s purposeful emasculation of our military and defensive capabilities and the ineptitude of the current Washington Swamp. Americans will not “get it” until Los Angeles or other similar-sized cities have lost several million people in a nuclear attack.

I think Trump is the real threat!!!

They have the right to do as they please in their own country (and it’s totally understandable to want to be stronger and more independent instead of staying under someone else’s mercy). USA needs to f……. chill instead of being such a control freak, who named them gods anyway?? all the problems come from them in the first place…

I would say our (and by our I mean the President’s) over-reactions and lack of diplomacy are a greater threat to world peace. I’m not saying North Korea wouldn’t do anything, but our escalating the situation with rhetoric is ridiculous and not helpful in any way.

…I found multiple ways that devices can be imported by sea. North Korea has demonstrated nuclear bombs that work, and frankly, they don’t need a missile to deliver them… If they sent ten, one would most certainly get through. To me, that is a legitimate threat because it is about attitude, not ability.

Seems like there’s a big financial incentive to invade North Korea then…ala other invasions of mineral-rich foreign lands such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, etc, etc.

A genuine threat but to only some regions of the world. However, I do believe much of their threats are just propaganda and rhetoric. But, it only takes one crazy day for the despotic leadership to say, “You know what? Let’s do this.” And, push the button.

Genuine, and the USA continues to make it worse. Constantly claiming you’re number one at everything makes those not number one gun for you. Sadly, South Korea is in the most danger because of Trumps moronic posturing.

Do you believe the election of President Trump will bring about mostly POSITIVE or NEGATIVE changes in America and around the World?  That’s the question we put in our latest poll to members of our Underground Knowledge group on Goodreads — and results to date show only one fifth of respondents believe Trump will bring about mostly positive changes.

Trump…positive or negative changes ahead?

 

Interim poll results show: 60% of respondents voted mostly NEGATIVE changes, 21% voted mostly POSITIVE changes, 14% voted an equal mix of positive/negative changes, and the balance (5%) cannot decide.

 

Here’s what poll respondents are saying:

Suffice for DT to deliver the promises he made during the campaign and we would need to give a new meaning to the word ‘dystopian.’

What Trump will do, or try to do, will be negative. People’s strong reactions against what Trump does will hopefully be positive…If both the Republicrats and the Demoplicans implode, that would be positive.

I really believe that things will get better and that he will be more concerned for the people who are the backbone of this country and the good of all Americans. Time will tell but IMHO it can’t get much worse than it’s been.

He’s completely denying global warming and I think it will majorly impact the world negatively especially at this time.

Whatever he does I don’t think he can achieve much worse than Obamacare, NSA spying against own taxpayers on their own dime, police shooting American afroamericans on sight, ginormous external debt of US, home-growing DAISH and starting multiple wars around the world. And I’m not even starting on Hillary, she would have been even worse.

I imagine that those who voted for Trump will end up very disappointed when he doesn’t fulfill his campaign promises…Don’t believe anything these people say because the public will get nothing and the real winners are the big corporations and the 1%.

I have a hunch that as a businessman he will help the economy in the USA but I fear his abrupt style and lack of negotiation skills will cause offense and worsen relations between them and other countries.

Considering that the President has very little real power. It seems that we really need to worry about the congress.

This is awful but, I can’t wait for the economy to tank and for WWIII to start. Trump supporters are going down with the rest of us, just wait and see. Wait and see.

I recently appeared on Boston’s Philosophic Perspectives Radio Show to discuss my newly-published book Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories: Two Non-Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide (co-written with Lance Morcan with a foreword by Holocaust survivor Hetty E. Verolme).

Topics covered in this interview include the ugly history of anti-Semitism, indisputable Holocaust facts, the Middle East conflict…and Donald Trump!

Debunking Holocaust denial theories can be ordered via Amazon.

The 2016 US Presidential Election dominates Underground Knowledge group discussions on the popular Amazon-owned book lovers’ site Goodreads.com. Little wonder given the importance of the upcoming election and the media coverage afforded its main contenders.

 

Candidates Trump and Clinton draw flak from Underground Knowledge group members (aka Undergrounders) who voice their thoughts about the election in the discussion thread at https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/12042912-the-2016-u-s-presidential-election?page=1

 

However, the election isn’t the only discussion thread attracting members to this, one of the fastest growing groups on Goodreads.
