The redemption of the totalitarian subject: The life of Jung Man Bok as Case study
“The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the convinced Communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction (i.e. the reality of experience) and the distinction between true and false (i.e. the standards of thought) no longer exist.” - Hannah Arendt "On the origins of Totalitarianism"
I let a man who treated me like a human being die, and I have to stay loyal to a man who doesn't treat me like a human being. If that's the mission given by my country, if that is my life, don't you think its too cruel? - Jung Man Bok episode 8
