Ill use north korea as an example.
Im pretty sure that everyone knows the general situation of north korea(not talking about that kim chum limwhatever guys death), but the fact that people are pertty much starving there and are manipulated to stay in the country.
Now forgeiners(if they really wanted to) could help these people. Now if they would do thay, there would be shit loads of refugees coming from there. They would mostly go to china, but it would be a shitty thing for china, so china wouldnt want there refugees.
China is, how should i put it, it kinda runs the whole world and in theory owns usa(usa has so much dept for them, that they simply cant pay). Basically china manufactures crap and usa buys them(and so does rest of the world). So china basically holds the world on its balls on a tight kung fu grip. Therefore other countries dont want things to happen that china doesent want to happen.
-> its easier for everyone to keep these potential refugees in fenced area where we dont have to pay attention to them.
Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Well good for us(thinking financially/politically), bad for those people living in north korea or who knows? Alot of stuff could get worse for many of them as refugees, majority would just starve in china..
So its basically throwing dices, wishing for 7 and making compromises.
And the same analogy can be used in domestic politics. We got different parties(in other words people wanting different things) trying to get their stuff through and need to make same sort of compromises with other parties and wishing that they make right decisions.
What do you think about this situation about potential refugees coming from north korea? Would it be the right thing to set them free or is it better that china will get pissed off and tighten the iron fist holding balls of the world amd potentially just make those people even more miserable and making stuff worse for people in china?
