From the Paper:

"This work will serve as a Lockwood Analytical Method for Prediction (LAMP) analysis of the question of nuclear proliferation in the Korean Peninsula. As an emerging nuclear power North Korea may significantly change the manner in which the political world interacts with it, though you would think that it would not be likely to alter the manner in which individual North and South Koreans live their lives. Though this is clearly a simplistic and westernized view, as the understanding of the strength of a nation is intrinsic we, especially as Americans live in a state of almost constant denial of the manner in which the nation has developed "security," perceptually or otherwise. This is including a relatively low level of knowledge among common folk about the nature of armament."
