I just switched off the news and sought refuge in a local café. Thank God there is no TV in the corner, as many restaurants do here. Otherwise I would still be subjected to the non-stop images of President Park apologizing or the arrest of her shamanic advisor, ChoiSoon-Sil, who is alleged to have wielded huge power over the President and enjoyed immense access to classified information.
Since antiquity those in power, from Kings to Empresses, have sought advice from wise sages. The famous case was Grigoriy Rasputin who yielded much influence at the Court of Nicholas II, the Russian Tsar. Until he was assassinated of course.
