‘America’s future is as bleak as North Korea’ says defector after attending Columbia
 
Yeonmi Park was shocked by the oppressive culture within the university, reminding her of the country she fled.
 
As American educational institutions continue to be called into question, a North Korean defector fears the United States' future "is as bleak as North Korea" after she attended one of the country's most prestigious universities.
 
Yeonmi Park has experienced plenty of struggle and hardship, but she does not call herself a victim....
 
"I expected that I was paying this fortune, all this time and energy, to learn how to think. But they are forcing you to think the way they want you to think," Park said in an interview with Fox News. "I realized, wow, this is insane. I thought America was different but I saw so many similarities to what I saw in North Korea that I started worrying."
 
Those similarities include anti-Western sentiment, collective guilt and suffocating political correctness....

"That is what is happening in America," she continued. "People see things but they've just completely lost the ability to think critically."...

"I guess that's what they want, to destroy every single thing and rebuild into a Communist paradise."
