    I would have though Dennis Rodman was more the little degenerate's taste than teenage tarts.

    The point is they are not anything in western governmental context, they are Communist / Totalitarian in nature. From our point of view very little of North Korea's governmental controls qualify as left or right.

    You might be able to bend logic enough to make it look like communism is a "leftist" ideology.

    But I think the major factor here just might be the fact that North Korea is a Dictatorship, with a Dictator.

    This is what happens when 1 person has absolute control over an entire country, it's human nature. It has nothing to do with communism or "leftism".
    Could It Be Semantics Generating This Mess We're In?

    In this country, Communism has been adopted by mostly Leftist.

    OK, let's call it one step removed from Socialism. The millennials are leaning toward Socialism. They probably were never taught about Communism.

    That isn't even close to the actual definition of "leftist ideology."

    The right claims to want less, but it doesn't jibe with their actions. They just want the government to control different things.

    Re: Kim Jong Un's bringing back the pleasure squad

    It depends on what part of the government. There are constitutional duties like defense, and breaucratic ones like Dept of Ed, the EPA, and many other alphabet soup breauracies that could vanish tomorrow and no one would notice they were gone.

    Hopefully, if trump gets elected he'll cut them back or out. We'll have to see.
    We killed God, family, and community. Now itís killing us.
