Crash Course in Coping, how the other side adjusts to freedom

I was surfing the NY times, and this article caught my eye. Since we know htat North Korea is a uniquely different society, when defectors discover that they can openly read the newspaper, talk about politics, and enjoy the the joys of free market capitalsim, it can get overwhelming, so in South Korea they have deveoped a school to readjust the defectors to Western world normalcy. see here--> coping
"On a sprawling campus hidden in farmland here, about 300 North Koreans are learning that, no, actually, it was not the South that started the Korean War."--> this can be hard to cope with, since all you have ever known is that the USA was imperialistic dogs out to destroy the Korean people.
