    North Korea is the definition of a cult of personality... You do as you're told and believe what the state tells you and if you don't then you and your family will be murdered or locked in anyone of their numerous prison camps.

    There is a reason why there is a DMZ littered with land mines - and it's not to keep people out - it's to keep people in. People are forced to live in North Korea - they don't choose to live in North Korea.

    North Koreans are brainwashed to believe that they are the pinnacle of the world and the most advanced nation on earth - while every other nation is starving and wants North Koreas resources....

    Of course when you visit (which is nearly impossible) you have to pretend you believe all of it despite the fact it is all a bunch of BS.
    look, you took that way to seriously. I am really surprised i actually have to explain this to someone but you need to take a step back. Really, you took that seriously and OMG was that wrong.

    Also, I am unsure how you could come to the conclusion I am trying to protect NK's image when I have already called it a totalitarianism **** hole.




    Yet, your activity in this thread clearly shows you do care, and based on some rather bizarre assumptions that have no basis in reality







    No~!!! And all this time I was planning to snort meth from the dear leaders cleavage. Yes, we all know that, and such was even stressed every time someone noted an interest in traveling there. Which is why your accusations of such amounting to support for the regime seem so freaking bizarre and divorced from anything called reality




    I find this truly shocking ...



    I don't believe it ...
    What's your problem man.

    We're on the same page yet you're attacking me?

    Are you really this bored?

    If it really matters to you, I find totalitarian/authoritarian dictators fascinating and evil - Kim Il-Sung, Kim Jong-Il, Pol Pot, Stalin, Ho Che Minh, Hitler, Castro, (I could go on forever here with the names)...

    I don't care where people go, nor do I understand how (or why) you have a negative opinion on my position especially when we both agree that North Korea is a totalitarian ****hole cult of personality that's Disneyland for those who are interested in socioeconomic philosophy and/or anthropology.

    lol, you just accused me of taking issue with the "facts" on NK and you're accusing other people of supporting the regime for denoting an interest to travel there.

    i hope not because then there would not be any unicorns. They are just keeping all the unicorns to themselves and need to be invaded so we can free the unicorns. We could have Mattel sponsor the invasion and when we find the unicorns we can paint them pastel colors and draw pictures on their butts.

    All I was implying was that they're pretty authoritarian when it comes to their own but they give "guests" a pass on minor infractions (that wouldn't even be illegal in the US).

    In short they're not going to give a US citizen an infraction for spitting on the sidewalk and they wont "jail" a US citizen for minor "cultural crimes" that would get a Chinese citizen locked up.

    The Chinese want our business, and the last thing they want to do is screw with people there who are on business or even US citizens in general.

    I've never once even asserted anyone here supported the regime.

    I just don't know why anyone would want to go to North Korea when they're not going to get anything but a propaganda tour.

    Why go and waste all the money to attempt entry when even if you're allowed to do so you will continually be lied to.

    It would be like buying a ticket to a real life 1984...

    indeed you did, and I even quoted one such post above

    I just don't know why anyone would want to go to North Korea when they're not going to get anything but a propaganda tour.
    the same reason someone would still want to go to soviet Russia under the same conditions. Because it would still likely be an interesting and bizarre experience you're unlikely to ever repeat.

    You mean Disneyland (not a circus) - that was what Kim Jong-Il was obsessed with - Disney movies.

    That is if you were trying to pun Kim Jong-Il in your original post.

    On a side note,

    Kim Jong-Il actually abducted (seriously) a South Korean film star and director and forced her and him to make a "Godzilla" propaganda film.
