What happens if living in your own country is no longer safe? Find out in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:23 Explanations: 3:22 Fast dialog: 17:36 Julie: The government is out to get me. I feel like I don’t have any real freedom and everything I do is being monitored. Ed: Maybe you should move to another country. Julie: I guess that’s one solution. Ed: Yes, you should seek asylum in another country. Julie: Become a refugee? I’m not sure I want to do that. Ed: Well, if you feel like you’re being persecuted, you should look for other options. Julie: That seems a little extreme. Ed: People who are being treated unfairly because of their political opinions or religious beliefs have the option to emigrate. Julie: I’m not sure I’d go that far. Ed: I urge you to think about it. Other countries have resettlement programs for refugees and not every country will have reached their quota yet this year. You might still find a country that will take you. Julie: I didn’t say that I wanted to renounce my citizenship. I was just letting off steam. Ed: That’s the problem with you young people these days. You have no follow-through, and no courage of your convictions. You all need to man up! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
