The Triumph of The Will?

Not everyone believes that that the recent/sudden thaw in relations between North Korea and ROK is as genuine as it may appear.

It is true to say that certain people, such as Bolton, will always be naysayers wrt attempts to make peace. However, it is worth remembering that the 1936 Berlin Olympics were used by the Nazis to show themselves to be a country of "peace" and to further propagandise the myth of the "Triumph of The Will".

Whilst North Korea is not hosting the Games, it will do its best to ride the coattails of ROK wrt the positive publicity the Games will engender. ROK should be on its guard and maximise the opportunity (if North Korea really does attend) to show the North the benefits of democracy, a high standard of living and geopolitical/economic interaction with the world. brought to you by "The Living Brand"
