Sorry Norks. I can't see you hating me while I'm eating this delicious Whopper on this side of the border. Mmmmmmmm!

And see this? It's called "Ketchup"? Ever seen ketchup. It's made from to-ma-toes. Ever seen a  tomato?

puu.sh

But anyway, the Norks have been running a cartoon series that's been ongoing since the freaking 1960's (and you thought George R.R. Martin was glacial with his books) called "Squirrel and Hedgehog", where the brave hedgehogs, squirrels, and ducks defend their Marxist Paradise against the Imperialist army of wolves, weasels, rats, and foxes. Check it out on You Tube. There's even Rule 34 art dedicated to one of the evil female villains of the series, known outside of Norkland as "Lt. Fox Vixen".

At the rate things are going with chronic malnutrition, each new generation is becoming a  more stunted, more withered version of the one before.

By 2075, Best Koreans will either become a race of Morlocks or extinct.

No relevant difference.  The Kim family has a literal religious mythology built around it.  Kim Jong-Il's birth was heralded by great miracles and magic.  His dad is called "Eternal Leader" because he's still in charge, ruling from the heavens.

SirEattonHogg: The idea that a bunch of folks made a porno tape for sale in a country as conservative and isolated as DPRK sounds real unlikely. This is the country that prosecutes you if they catch you with a bootleg copy of a South Korean soap opera.

My money is on some of these folks being Christian converts and maybe it was spreading amongst their little social circle.... South Korean missionaries are active in that area. Or it was a political crime of sorts - plans for defection, too many critical comments made about the regime, or even being too visible.

This is just a salicious made-up crime to make them even look worse in the eyes of the masses.


Yep, age old propaganda technique.

"No, we're not executing these musicians because they're Christians or they played a song the Leader didn't like, no no.  We're executing them because they're sexual deviants who offend your very moral fiber!"

Ha ha!  Stalin executed anyone in the USSR named "Trotsky" just in case, even though he must have known that that was a pseudonym.


In all fairness, parents who would name their child after Trotsky were probably at least sympathetic to the "wreckers" like him.

Sadly no.  Best Korea has Worst Korea trapped in a perpetual hostage crisis.  If we try to effect a coup there, they open up with all that artillery they have pointed at Seoul and suddenly 5+ million innocent people are dead.

Best Koreans are indoctrinated with the idea of NK 'purity' as something to be revered and protected. It's part of the isolationist mindset. Outsiders must be kept out lest they dilute our superior, pure race. To the average NK citizen, any outsider, even South Koreans, Japanese, etc. not to mention the evil US and other western nations would bring down the utopia that is Best Korea.


In fairness that's a South Korean viewpoint too.

It's a brilliant way to snuff out dissent and rebellion.  !0 many people are brave enough to risk death to fight for something they believe in,  Far less people are willing to risk the lives of their children and spouses in such a fight (thus conscience doth make cowards of us all) , and even if they WERE the fact that your spouses, children etc know they will bear the consequences of your misdeeds they are much more likely to turn you in before you do something bad, meaning there is literally NO ONE you can trust when trying to put together a conspiracy

Another report on the story:  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/northkorea/10272953/Ki m -Jong-uns-ex-lover-executed-by-firing-squad.html

It includes this tidbit:

"She was luckier than Kim Chol, vice minister of the army, who was executed with a mortar round in October 2012.

Kim Chol was reportedly executed for drinking and carousing during the official mourning period after Kim Jong-il's death.

On the explicit orders of Kim Jong-un to leave 'no trace of him behind, down to his hair,' according to South Korean media, Kim Chol was forced to stand on a spot that had been zeroed in for a mortar round and 'obliterated.' "

Yeah ...

Probably about 80% of it.  Though I couldn't say how many people are affected by that special brand of lunacy they've got over there.  Such an odd way to go about living the one life you've got.

They're absolutely TERRIFIED.  The entire culture is based on never-ending fear of everyone.  You couldn't even trust your own family.  That's how this anachronism continues along.  The worst part is that they are led to believe that the whole world works this way, it's just how it is.  Foreign media is forbidden, even reading a worst Korean newspaper can be punishable by death.  Foreign broadcasts are jammed.  It's an information black hole, which is why it's unlikely to change from within.

If the shiat ever hits the fan and the regime collapses, the culture shock is going to be like nothing ever seen before.  German reunification was NOTHING compared to what Korean unification would be.


The reunification pains are going to be unprecedented, but (Chinese) cell phones are relatively widespread in Best Korea. So there is some inflow (and sharing) of information.
