Yeah, killing others.

Spreading COVID19 does likewise.

https://restofworld.org/2021/elderly-conservatives-in-south-korea-turn-to-youtube-and-conspiracy-theories/?campaign_id=30&emc=edit_int_20210528&instance_id=31733&nl=the-interpreter&regi_id=85512362&segment_id=59274&te=1&user_id=b358bae87ac1653a6780159839a92331

An in-depth piece on the influence of YouTube on the politics and beliefs of Koreans.

Why is it a conspiracy theory to be against a total government takeover and restrictions on personal freedoms?  Why is it a conspiracy theory trying to seek the truth when much of the political establishment and fake news media lies to you?  Why is it a conspiracy theory to not agree with massive government money printing and to call out coming inflation as a result?  Seems like good old fashioned common sense to me. 

As for Korea, my understanding is the young generation is extremely anti Communist and anti censorship, and anti government control.  They have more of a Libertarian mindset.  It's not 100 per cent lined with the elderly, but has shades of commonality.  It is the middle aged to early retiring that have the very liberal views here as I understand it.  Also, in Korea, it is in fact the Conservatives that are usually pro foreigner it seems.

The whole “liberal vs conservative” thing is so tiresome.

This is NOT the Anglosphere, and its political categories and values don’t apply here.
