Forbidden books

Korean government, exactly speaking Department of Defence, pronounced twenty three forbidden books.

Two books by Noam Chomsky, a book criticising Samsung’s bad behaviour, and some other books criticising globalisation and bad attitude of US were included in the forbidden list.

The Korean government went back 100 years ago. It is really surprising that the government still can do this. After MB Lee became the president, the whole country of Korea goes crazy.

But, what makes me funny is that after that pronouncing, the books in the list became best sellers. They are being sold ten times more now.
