Leadership has been the fulcrum of human evolution since time immemorial. Safeguarding continuity in leadership has always been crucial in all cultures/geographies ... again since time immemorial.
The above fact(s) underpins all the crap we are forced to endure when the uncertainty of regime change raises it's ugly head.
Global circumstances today are no different ... in fact ... regime change is the number one issue today.
Yet people don't/can't see the 'red herring'.
Who is not focused on the instances of "enforced regime change" ... Russia, Iran, Syria, North Korea.
Who has given serious thought to an "unwanted" regime change.
A new unwanted leader in South Korea may initiate a sea change for the "West" in the "East" ... a real tsunami.
Speculative perhaps ... yet the only logical answer for the sudden drastic uptick in global fear mongering.
Look at the flag for South Korea ... Ba Gua ... I-Ching ... laugh if you like.
