Eye on the world: Praying to disarm destructive strongholds in human governments

In “The tiny cracks inside North KoreaThe Christian Science Monitor’sEditorial Board writes,  “With conspicuous ceremony on the Fourth of July, North Korea launched a missile that had more than a technological purpose. It aimed to promote fear…. with each new test, North Korea is clearly trying to send a message: With each passing day, its circles of destruction widen.… While North Korea is attempting to present an expanding threat to the world, such reports suggest that it is also facing an expanding threat from within.… The Kims have built their ‘hermit kingdom,’ in ways that have allowed them to push cruelty, domination, and secrecy to extreme lengths. Tuesday’s missile test was, in essence, simply an attempt to expand that shadow. But the world is pushing back, too, usually in ways that seem much less potent than a ballistic missile. Yet even the smallest freedoms, squeezed in through the cracks of a totalitarian state, carry the seeds for change.”
