Kim Jong Un admits North Korea is facing 'tense food situation'

https://www.cnn.com/2021/06/17/asia/north-korea-food-shortages-intl/index.html

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has admitted his country is facing food shortages that he blamed on last year's typhoon and floods, just months after he warned North Koreans about a looming potential crisis.

Kim told the plenary meeting of the Workers' Party of Korea the nation was experiencing a "tense food situation," Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported on Wednesday.

The secretive country has cut itself off from the rest of the world even more during the pandemic. Speaking on Tuesday, Kim said the conditions and environment that North Korea was facing "have become worse upon entering this year," even though its economy has, on the whole, shown improvement.
He said the meeting of the ruling party should take the measure of the problem, according to KCNA.

In April, KCNA reported Kim urged people to undertake another "Arduous March," while addressing a top-level political meeting.
The term "Arduous March" refers to a period of devastating famine in the early 1990s, when North Korea's economy spiraled downward following the collapse of the Soviet Union, which ended the flow of aid into the country.

Hundreds of thousands of people, or as many as 10% of the country's population, were estimated to have starved to death.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has estimated that North Korea is short of about 860,000 tons of food, enough for just over two months of supplies.

In a report released on Monday, the FAO said North Korea officially plans to import only about one fifth of the food it needs to cover the gaps in domestic shortages. It said that while North Korea increased agricultural planting in 2020, the growth "mostly offset yield losses due to floods and storms" that the Korean Peninsula experienced from early August until early September 2020.

The FAO has warned that if the gap in supplies is not covered through imports or aid, North Koreans could experience "a harsh lean period between August and October 2021."

KCNA said the plenary meeting would focus on directing all efforts to farming this year and coping with the epidemic situation.

>Why vote for sanctions against North Korea?
China and Russia don't ever enforce these sanctions. They are powerful enough that the US can't make them. Technically speaking economic sanctions are war-crimes, because it's targeting civilian populations. It's violating international law and therefor it has no legal standing, and upholding sanctions is optional regardless what anybody votes. And voting yes sometimes makes diplomacy less tense. The other small countries from your list aren't as powerful and that's why they have to trade through middle men with the DPRK, which in praxis means that sanctioned DPRK trade just goes through unofficial channels in Macau.

>Why doesn't Israel get the same treatment from these so-called "socialist" and "anti-imperialist" countries for housing hundreds of nukes and ethnically cleansing Arabs in a Nazi-like way or Saudi Arabia for slaughtering Yemenis?

China an Russia economically support Iran which is keeping the Yemenis alive (somewhat). When Saudis get too aggressive, then Iran gives the Yeminis a batch of bigger weapons and a Aramco OIl refinery/pipeline goes up in flames. The rest of the Arab world needs to become united enough to bully the Zionists into halting "mowing Palestinians" for lebensraum

>Speaking of China, a "socialist" country according to /leftypol/, besides their trade deals and huge investments in the Israeli military,

Israel gets US restricted military technology and they sell it to China who will reverse engineer the tech. Which means that if it ever comes to a hot conflict between the US and China, US weapons will be a lot less effective.

>why are they helping Saudi Arabia build nukes?

So far we only know for certain that China is helping the Saudi's build nuclear power plants for electricity and other parts related to the nuclear fuel cycle, which isn't really all that interesting, because the civilian tech isn't suitable for making bombs.
No nuclear power has ever helped another country make it's "own nukes", what really happens is that a big power ends up controlling the nuclear arsenal of the small country, "it is helping" I doubt that the Saudi's are really getting nukes, you can't keep something like that a secret, and there would be way more noise if nuclear proliferation would be happening.

Because it's the path of least resistance. They could challenge the legality of these sanctions, spend a huge amount of diplomatic capital to de-legitimize it in international courts and then the Americans would completely ignore the courts and threaten them with an invasion if they ever tried to prosecute an American citizen.

Kim Jong Un was 26 years old when he was thrust into leadership in the DPRK. Hence his exact age being covered for several years, Korea has a strong age worship culture and men tend to marry older (towards their 30's), normal for 30 year old guys to still live with parents & defer to their father as the absolute head of household. 26 guys in the DPRK are just wrapping up their 8 years of military service and in the context of Korea's age worship culture would probably be seen as the equivalent of 13 or 14-year-olds in the west to older men, esp given that the leadership in the DPRK tend to be super old.jucheJuche

Votes against sanctions at the UN are useless when the core countries and Burgerland can unilaterally impose santions by means of control over the financial system. Trade with countries like Iran or Venezuela, and get arrested by imperial lackey states like that Venezuelan businessman or Chinese businesswomen, or have all the intermediaries decline to abet attempts to do business with said countries because of the possibility of secondary sanction risk. Numerous times the countries of the world have tried to lift the embargo on Cuba, yet the motions never have any concrete effect, and even when the UN rejects blatant proposals to commit the crime of war the imperialists nonetheless invade. So it's hardly easy to oppose the whims of the imperial core nations and to do sanctions evasion.anarcha-feminismAnarcha-Feminism

North Korea rejects AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccines over blood clot concerns

https://www.rt.com/news/528776-pyongyang-rejects-astrazeneca-covid-19/

North Korea has canceled shipments of Oxford’s AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine that were due to arrive in the country through the Covax program, citing concerns over potentially fatal, but rare, side effects.

A report from the Institute for National Security Strategy (INSS), a South Korean think tank that works closely with the country’s spy unit, has revealed that neighboring North Korea has rejected the import of AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccines due to concerns over a few cases of blood clotting in people following inoculation.

The intelligence information detailed that the hermit kingdom was due to receive some 2 million doses of Oxford’s vaccine in May through the Covax scheme. However, the process had been delayed due to North Korean concerns over the vaccine’s safety, as well as worldwide shortages because of India’s vaccine export ban.

Covax, led by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, Gavi, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund, was designed to alleviate vaccine inequity by donating vaccines to countries that cannot afford to produce or procure high volumes of shots.

Leaders of DPRK, China vow greater cooperation in face of foreign hostility.

In a message to China's Xi Jinping, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said their relationship is vital in the face of hostile foreign forces, while Xi promised to bring cooperation "to a new stage", KCNA said.
China has been North Korea's only major ally since the two signed the treaty in 1961, and international sanctions imposed over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programmes have made it more dependent than ever on Beijing for trade and other support.
"Despite the unprecedentedly complicated international situation in recent years the comradely trust and militant friendship between the DPRK and China get stronger day by day," Kim said in his message, KCNA reported, using the initials for North Korea's official name.
The treaty is defending socialism and peace in Asia "now that the hostile forces become more desperate in their challenge and obstructive moves," Kim said.
Xi's message said he plans to provide greater happiness to the two countries and their people by strengthening communication with Kim and "by steadily leading the relations of friendship and cooperation between the two countries to a new stage," KCNA said.

My guess is it has recovered and surpassed whatever level it was in 1989 in real gdp per capita terms, but its just a guess like everybody else. I also guess that the structure of the output has shifted a bit towards services and some raw materials.

N.K. leader pays respects to fallen soldiers to mark anniversary of Korean War armistice
https://en.yna.co.kr/view/AEN20210727001600325

>North Korean leader Kim Jong-un visited a cemetery to pay respects to the soldiers killed during the 1950-53 Korean War to commemorate the armistice that ended the fighting in the war, a state broadcaster reported Tuesday.


> The Korean War ended in the armistice signed July 27, 1953, leaving South and North Korea technically in a state of war. The North called the war the Fatherland Liberation War and designated the armistice signing date as Victory Day.


> Kim visited the Fatherland Liberation War Martyr's Cemetery in Pyongyang at midnight Monday to mark the 68th anniversary of the Korean War armistice, according to the North's state Korean Central Broadcasting Station.


> The Rodong Sinmun, an organ of the ruling Workers' Party, said that Kim delivered food, medicine and other gifts to the war veterans to mark the anniversary.

Did you uyghas know about this? Just learned about this event only a few days ago, insane shit tbh
>On August 18, 1976, a group of five Korean Service Corps (KSC) personnel escorted by a UNC security team consisting of Captain Arthur Bonifas, his South Korean Army counterpart, Captain Kim, the platoon leader of the current platoon in the area (First Lieutenant Mark Barrett), and 11 enlisted personnel, both American and South Korean,[3] went into the JSA to prune the tree.

>The two captains did not wear sidearms, as members of the Joint Security Area were limited to five armed officers and 30 armed enlisted personnel at a time. However, there were mattocks in the back of the 2+1⁄2-ton truck. The KSC workers had the axes that they brought to prune the tree branches.


>After the pruning began, about 15 North Korean soldiers appeared, commanded by Senior Lieutenant Pak Chul, whom the UNC soldiers had nicknamed "Lieutenant Bulldog" because of a history of confrontations.[4] Pak and his subordinates appeared to observe the pruning without concern for approximately 15 minutes. Then, he abruptly told the UNC to cease the activity and stated that the tree could not be pruned.[2] Captain Bonifas ordered the detail to continue and turned his back on the North Koreans.


>After being ignored by Bonifas, Pak sent a runner across the Bridge of No Return. Within minutes, a North Korean guard truck crossed the bridge and approximately 20 more North Korean guards disembarked carrying crowbars and clubs. Pak again demanded that the pruning cease. When Bonifas again turned his back on him, Pak removed his watch, carefully wrapped it in a handkerchief, placed it in his pocket, and shouted, "Kill the bastards!"[5][6] Using axes dropped by the tree pruners, the KPA forces attacked both US soldiers, Bonifas and Barrett, and wounded all but one of the UNC guards.[7]

They got btfo'd hard
>Bonifas was knocked to the ground by Pak and then bludgeoned to death by at least five North Koreans, and Barrett jumped over a low wall that led past a 4.5-metre (15 ft) deep tree-filled depression just across the road from the tree. The depression was not visible from the road because of the dense grass and small trees. The entire fight lasted for only 20 to 30 seconds before the UNC force dispersed the North Korean guards and placed Bonifas's body in their truck.[6] There was no sign of Barrett, and the two UNC guards at OP No. 5 could not see him.

>The UNC force observed the North Korean guards at KPA No. 8 along the UNC emergency egress road exhibiting strange behavior in that one guard would take an axe and go down into the depression for a couple of minutes and then come back and hand the axe to another guard, who would repeat the action.[1] That went on for approximately 90 minutes until the UNC guards at OP No. 5 were informed that Barrett was missing, when they informed their superiors about the KPA activity in the depression. A search-and-rescue squad was quickly dispatched and found that Barrett had been attacked with the axe by the North Koreans.[1] Barrett was recovered and transported to a hospital in Seoul via an aid station at Camp Greaves, but he died on the journey.

I think I'm in the same mindset as Laibach (maybe). They performed in North Korea, which is not something that would be allowed to happen if they went there to "troll" them or something which is kinda how it was described by some media. I don't think that's true whatsoever.

I think the "joke" from their videos about North Korea is really at the West's expense. By contrast, an "ironic" satire of North Korea was the movie "The Interview" which ended with the main characters blowing up Kim Jong Un with a tank. And then some neocons tried to send DVD copies of the movie into the DPRK via balloon like that will convince people to overthrow their government. And that just tells you everything. The West will make jokes and treat the whole situation as a big farce, but underneath, the West is serious about destroying their country and killing their leader. And that's not a joke. So, the conclusion to draw from this is that the West is like a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Or seeing the DPRK as a "problem" to be solved, which makes you wonder whether North Koreans see themselves as a "problem."

They're human beings for Christ's sake.

Also if you've read interviews with the band about their visit there, it's very different. They don't endorse the political system, but they're not "against" it really. I think it's just not anyone's place to decide that except for the Korean people. And I think their videos from there poked a little hole in the Western ideology bubble and looking at the people and showing their humanity (instead of dehumanizing them as "brainwashed automatons" or whatever). This is what they told Rolling Stone:

>Our first impression of the country was, “This is just like we expected… but it is somehow completely different.” A few days later, we were thinking about an option to be able to “live and stay there to reach the higher wisdom in ourselves.” The country may be poor and isolated, with a heavily oppressive political system, but the people are fantastic and they seem to possess the precious wisdom that we don’t.


[…]

>The general people of Korea are definitely the brightest jewel in the country. We couldn’t find any cynicism, sarcasm, irony, vulgarity and other “Western characteristics” in their eyes, on their faces and in their behavior. It was nothing but sincere modesty, kindness, proudness and respect. There was no military parade for the 70th Anniversary of Freedom, only people dancing gracefully instead everywhere on the streets and parks of Pyongyang.


[…]

>What misconceptions don’t [the West] have? It’s a country everybody in the West loves to hate, but most of the tabloid stories about the DPRK are utterly false: They don’t eat their own children, they don’t throw people to dogs and they don’t starve because of a lack of food. Americans in North Korea are, for instance, not hated at all, but welcomed. And Koreans do not equate the American people with U.S. governmental policy. Entering North Korea is not that difficult at all. As a matter of fact, it is generally easier than entering U.S.


>Pyongyang, which was completely bombed and erased during the Korean war — of course by the American warheads — is today a beautiful, clean, well-kept and colorful city with impressive architecture and parks. North Koreans laugh, smile and joke a lot and people across the country are incredibly well and “dignifying” dressed. They learn foreign languages; children begin to learn English at the age of seven. Koreans are keen to open up to the outside world, but they want to do it slowly, on their own terms, and in a very different way than the Chinese.

The opera is highly regarded as a masterpiece of eternal value.

that's the only legitimate story, since DPRK media confirmed it. And it was what gave fuel for South Korean media to make up purge stories willy nilly. Thaek was apparently consolidating powers for himself and it culminated with soldiers loyal to him having a shoot out with other soldiers during a spat over the ownership of some fisheries. Watching all footage of Un and Thaek together before his purge is interesting. It seems like Thaek was one of the few people who did not exhibit completely submissive body language to Un, many other people also didn't at the time. It was after the purge that everyone became extremely stiff around Un, out of fear obviously.

Today, on reddit, it was claimed that the North Korean government "refuses to accept aid from South Korea during a food shortage". I was immediately sceptical because I knew they have accepted South Korean aid before. Turns out, the "aid" is not coming from the South Korean government, but from a sketchy private organization backed by conservatives and religious cults called the Korean Sharing Movement. And it is in no way just offering donations! They want something in return, for example, they want their books being published in the North. Here is an account by someone criticizing this who is in no way sympathetic to the DPRK:

It coincided with the shift towards becoming an internet personality with her own YouTube channel who now visits right-wing podcasts and becomes part of the right-wing internet eco system.

>Unlike the conservatives who have historically been mostly frosty toward North Korea, progressives are far more receptive to dialogue and concessions to North Korea. Therefore, due to diverging political ideologies, the left has been largely silent about Pyongyang’s human rights abuses.

Since the end of the Cold War, the “C” word of communism (공산주의) has rarely been used in official North Korean discourse. The Rodong Sinmun and KCNA have rarely, if ever, highlighted communism as the country’s ruling ideology.

Instead, DPRK publications and leaders’ speeches have used the more general Marxian term of socialism (사회주의).

But in his recent letter to the trade union, Kim used the word “communism” nine times, and his emphasis on “communist traits” in North Korea’s “working class” echoed Kim Il Sung-era doctrine. Echoing Marx’s stages of development, he advocated for the building of a utopian communist society in the DPRK.

“The powerful country, the socialist society, we are aspiring after is a society in which all the people live a comfortable and harmonious life in good health and without any worries about food, clothing and housing,” Kim wrote, “a people-oriented society in which the communist traits and virtues of all the people sharing pleasure and sorrow while helping and leading one another forward.”

North Korea’s revised 2021 ruling party rules, recently revealed in full, also state that the party’s ultimate goal is “to build a communist society where the ideals of the people will be completely realized.” The 2016 rules included no mention of “communism.”

Once everything goes to shit like it always does in a neocon state, the South Korean opposition will have no choice to embrace violent means of protests and accept "pro DPRK" labour unions and leftwing groups just like in the late '90s where Pro DPRK groups were rampant.

Dismal American Society Where Even Elementary Right to Existence Is Ruthlessly Violated

http://www.mfa.gov.kp/en/dismal-american-society-where-even-elementary-right-to-existence-is-ruthlessly-violated/

The United States is obsessing over admonishing other countries, behaving habitually like a “human rights judge.”

Then, what about the human rights situation in the U.S.?

Hundreds of thousands of people have lost their precious lives because the U.S. has not properly responded to COVID-19 pandemic. Beyond this shocking happenings, the living people are wandering in despair and pain without enjoying even the elementary right to existence. This is where the United States stands now.

According to data, 6.5 million families and over 15 million inhabitants in the U.S. are now in the position to be forcibly evicted from their homes for their inability to pay the rents due to the insufficient income caused by COVID-19 pandemic, and this number is projected to further increase over time.

From September last year, the U.S. Administration is said to have taken so-called “eviction moratorium” as a means to prevent the inhabitants – to be evicted due to their inability to pay the rents – from being exposed to the pandemic. However, it has been merely a stopgap measure designed to silence their complaints.

This has been substantiated by the actions taken by the Administration and the Congress following the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that the Administration has no power to extend the “eviction moratorium” and if extension is needed, the Congress should appropriate additional budget.

The Administration and the Congress busied themselves with shifting responsibilities onto others, with the former insisting that the budgetary matter is within the competence of the Congress and the latter asserting that it hadn’t received notification from the former that the “eviction moratorium” is due to be expired. The emergency meeting of the Congress convened somehow to discuss the extension of “eviction moratorium” degenerated into a fruitless, point-scoring partisan fight.

While the Administration and the Congress were wasting time, the “eviction moratorium” expired, and a number of people at risk of homelessness staged protests.

The U.S. Administration, frightened by the unexpected developments, made a last-ditch attempt to extend the “eviction moratorium” for 60 days to be applicable only to the pandemic-ridden regions. But, a great number of inhabitants without ability to pay the rents are spending every day in worries and panic for fear of unforeseeable eviction.

Notwithstanding this reality, the United States, instead of taking measures to ensure the elementary right of the inhabitants to existence, is engrossed in meddling with others’ internal affairs, impudently poking its nose into human rights situations of other countries.

The international society denounces and derides the reality of the U.S., saying that the U.S. should first remedy its dismal human rights situation before taking up others’ “human rights issue”; there are few countries like the U.S. which carries serious human rights problems; and ensuring human rights in the U.S. is tantamount to building a castle in the air.

Before talking impudently about “human rights issue” of other countries, the U.S. should address the human rights problems of its own society which are daily getting worse owing to its anti-popular policies.

Copy posting my response here because it probably should have been in this thread in the first place:

East Asian languages are way more "flowery" than English. South Koreans sound just as crazy if you translate what they're saying directly into English, Anglo MSM makes an effort to "humanize" their speech, ie not just directly translate but translate in such a way that seems sensible in English while deliberately directly translating Korean when spoken by Northerners to make them sound insane.

Same is true of Japanese and Mandarin too. Go to an Asian grocery and look at some of the crazy names they have for products. IE "Supreme soy sauce" or whatever. I once heard that the mandarin term for a ship based cruise missile is "Fire breathing dragon deployed over water" although I'm not sure if that is actually correct or somebody is just making the mistake of directly translating individual Chinese characters which isn't how words are actually spoken there.

This has been a long, weird standing tradition in Western Propaganda. In the past it was a little cruder and more overt, ie inventing the name "Viet Cong" because it sounds scarier than "Viet Minh". Now days they've learned to be more subtle, half truths are more effective than lies in manufacturing consent.

The problem is when western leftists don't understand this and start speaking in weird robotic wizard sounding English mao-speak which just makes you sound like a full blown spastic to anybody whose native language is English. This kind of speak can be good for reinforcing a tight knit high control culture within some kind of political/narcissistic cult, both warping speech to create an insular culture & through trauma bonding as cadre are unable to communicate with outsiders, but it's bad for actually achieving anything like winning over anybody isn't a weird shutin/drug addict/BPD whore or whatever.

The DPRK itself does play into this sometimes though and use it to it's own advantage. Notice how in official DPRK communiques they will translate roughly all political terminology, ie Songun = Military first system. But they never, ever directly translate the word "Juche", which is funny because "Juche" originates not as some indigenous Korean word or a word which Kim Il Sung made up, but as a translation of a fairly "common" word which existed first in English and German but which most people would probably not be able to correctly define in political/philosophical context.

North Korea threatens UN Security Council

https://thehill.com/policy/international/asia-pacific/575082-north-korea-threatens-un-security-council

North Korea sent a threat to the U.N. Security Council on Sunday, warning the global body against voicing criticisms of its nuclear program.

Senior North Korean Foreign Ministry official Jo Chol Su told the council that it “had better think what consequences it will bring in the future in case it tries to encroach upon the sovereignty" of North Korea, The Associated Press reported.

According a statement circulated by North Korean state media, Jo accused the U.N. Security Council of having a “double-dealing standard” due to it not treating countries like the U.S. and its allies similarly.

North Korea is banned from engaging in ballistic missile activities under numerous U.N. Security Council resolutions, the AP noted. Despite this, the isolated country resumed conducting missile tests in September, sending two missiles off of its west coast. The AP noted that despite these recent provocations, North Korea is maintaining its self-imposed moratorium on long-range missile that could hit the U.S.

I'm just reading the part in the Stacked Odds "report" about the Norks, and it's just vapid blahblah:
<While the regime forces men to work in abusive conditions, often without any pay, the women are left behind with their starving families. Even where the men are paid, the State wage is not liveable or realistic. The regime uses its control over resources, like food, as a weapon to keep its people weak and silent – preoccupied with survival. They are systematically starving their people and any sign of rebellion.
<Still, our women persevere. They barter and bargain for food on the black market, notoriously dangerous places for women, that are also illegal in the eyes of the State but overrun by corrupt government officials. They are raped and beaten by guards and market operators. When they return home with bread to feed their families, their husbands – who often turn to alcohol and gambling to cope with their own experiences of labour exploitation and abuse – beat them. Nobody speaks about the violence in their homes. Again, our focus is on the most basic needs of survival.
<North Korean women suffer in silence, as they are taught that their only job is to be loyal to the regime and serve their men, consistently reminded that they are the bottom of the value chain.
How is any of that valuable data that you could use for scoring countries?? Hold on, I just had a feeling and looked at the byline. It's written by Yeonmi Pork Park. This means the text can only get better…
<In North Korea, rape is inescapable for women no matter what caste, or songbun, you hail from. The only difference a higher social status makes is who is your abuser: a low-level market inspector, a mid-ranking official, or even the dictator himself.
Read https://rhizzone.net/articles/songbullshit/
<When I was in middle school, I was chosen for a prestigious group that entertains the Supreme Leader with singing and dancing – and suffers the onslaught of his sexual abuse – commonly known as the ‘Pleasure Squad’ but more accurately termed sex slaves. While I was ultimately spared as my family was from a low songbun, approximately 2,000 girls are trapped in this group today. To refuse is to die.
<The idea that a woman could be sexually victimised by a man is missing in North Korea: she is the one considered immoral and shunned for losing her virginity.

Dark Society Where Virtue And Affection Are Withering Away

http://www.mfa.gov.kp/en/dark-society-where-virtue-and-affection-are-withering-away/

Respecting and taking good care of the elderly and holding them up as seniors of the family and society are noble virtue and universal ethics of human society.

Contrary phenomena, however, are widespread in the Japanese society where the aged are subjected to maltreatment, contempt and abuse, far from receiving deserved attention and care of the family and society. They are thus spending the remaining years of their lives in misery, misfortunes and sufferings, prompting the public astonishment.

According to the related data, nearly 6,500 people aged 65 and over committed suicide in 2018 alone.

It is no mere coincidence that the Japanese media reported that it is becoming a household phrase among the aged that “life in retirement is tantamount to a probationary period.”

A dark society is not something abstract.

It is the society bereft of love, virtue and affection toward humans, where human beings are turning bestial, being reduced to the slaves of capital.

Society Forsaken by People Ruins

https://dprktoday.com/abroad/news/30584

The world has long been locked in fierce ideological debates and showdown over the issue of which society represents the future of mankind: socialism or capitalism.

The capitalist production mode by which capitalism has prolonged its days by dint of sweat and blood shed by the people has reached the limit to breathe its last.

As a result, the gap between the rich getting ever richer and the poor getting ever poorer has now become extreme.

Contradiction and antagonism between a tiny handful of the privileged and the popular masses are growing day by day in the capitalist society where the differentiation of society and the gap between the rich and the poor have come to their limits, signaling great social eruption.

The fate of capitalism going downhill is an inevitable result stemming from inhuman and unpopular individualism.

Individualism appeared on the stage of history as the product of outdated social system based on private ownership and as the idea of serving the ruling class who can not exist without exploiting others. It, therefore, makes people extremely self-interested beings and money slaves controlled by material desire.

It is as clear as noonday that in such society each person's dignity and worth can not be respected and the burgeoning distrust, antagonism, hatred and hostile relations would split society and lead it to destruction.

No matter how much the bourgeois advocates try to beautify capitalist society, they can never cover up its reactionary nature that goes against the aspiration and the intrinsic demand of the popular masses.

It is the inevitability of history and a law governing social development that capitalism finds itself falling deeper into the abyss of ruin as it goes fundamentally counter to the independent nature of mankind and mercilessly tramples down the demand of the people for genuine rights and happy life.

Capitalism Has No Future

http://rodong.rep.kp/en/index.php?strPageID=SF01_02_01&newsID=2019-12-03-0011

Even though the Western politicians and media under their thumb idealize capitalism, advertising that it is a “typical example” of sustained development and prosperity whenever an opportunity presents itself, they can never cover up the social evils precipitating its ruin.

The gap between the rich and the poor, unemployment, moral decay, etc. are the cancer of capitalism and its fate is destined to sink like a setting sun.

The gap between the rich and the poor, unemployment and moral decay are not a passing phase but the fatal one jolting the root of the capitalist system.

Capitalism has maintained its existence while pretending to be a “model” of economic growth and “modern civilization” but is now driven into a tight corner.

The phenomenon in which the rich get richer and the poor poorer, moral decay, social disintegration and public discontent get more serious and grow larger, driving capitalism into a crisis.

The Western world is making desperate efforts to check the collapse of capitalism but it cannot stop capitalism going downhill with anything.

Capitalism at Its Evening Twilight

https://rodong.rep.kp/en/index.php?strPageID=SF01_02_01&newsID=2019-10-07-0006

Advocates of capitalism slander socialism and preach the “eternity” of capitalist society more often than not. But the world sees it festering and falling like the setting sun.

The capitalist society is by no means the utopia of humankind but dark society without future.

Capitalism, fraught with serious contradiction, is doomed to ruin.

Outwardly, the developed capitalist countries seem flourishing but they are in decay due to daily worsening contradiction.

In capitalist society, political life is rendered reactionary and material life deformed.

The corrupt nature of capitalism finds its vivid manifestation in the political life of people.

No genuine political freedom and rights can be found in this society where capitalist class rules everything and the toiling working masses are left out of political life.

A handful of the privileged class holds control of the majority of social assets which are being snowballed each day. On the other hand, the broad toiling masses are exposed to constant worries about job, medical care, housing, food and children’s education.

The moral degeneration of man is the clearest expression of capitalism now at its evening twilight.

The pauperization in spiritual and cultural life and the degeneration of human beings have spiraled beyond control in capitalist society now.

In such a society it is impossible to stay clear of inequality in material life, imbalance between material life and spiritual and cultural life and imbalance between the increasing demand of the popular masses for independence and worsening political life.

Murdered half-brother of Kim Jong Un was working for South Korean spy agency: report

Since Kim Jong Nam's murder and the trial of the two women who applied VX nerve agent to his face, suspicions have also been raised about connections to the CIA

https://nationalpost.com/news/world/murdered-half-brother-of-kim-jong-un-was-working-for-south-korean-spy-agency-report

Since his face was smeared with nerve agent in Kuala Lumpur airport, mystery has surrounded the hit job that brought down the half-brother of Kim Jong Un, North Korea’s leader.

But new revelations suggest the murdered one-time heir to the North’s despotic regime had been working for the intelligence agency of Pyongyang’s main enemy: South Korea.

Kim Jong Nam was long believed to have fallen out of favor with the regime at home, having been forced into exile after being caught with a fake passport en route to Tokyo Disneyland.

Since his murder and the trial of the two young women who applied VX nerve agent to his face on a piece of cloth, suspicions have also been raised about connections to the CIA.

But now current and former officials at South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS) claim Kim was using connections in the North to feed information to the South on matters such as his half-brother’s health and nuclear ambitions — and that he was paid for doing so.

“Kim provided the NIS with information on trends within the government and the powers of the regime’s most high-ranking officials, including Kim Jong Un, for five or six years before his death,” Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS) reported.

They added that Kim “raised the question of the possibility of asylum in South Korea”, although the South Korean side apparently hoped to avoid that on grounds “it would put considerable burden on inter-Korean relations.”

The argument implied is obviously the overt usage of LGBT issues for imperialism, with NGOs for LGBT rights being objectively tools for imperialism. Same with "human rights", but now that LGBT has been accepted by the West it is used for that agenda too.

This is the most balanced analysis that I've found so far. Every other link is to sources breathlessly parroting hearsay from South Korean journalists that are parroting unconfirmed reports from South Korea's spy agency.

I really don't understand how people can just endlessly buy the outrageous, ridiculous stuff they hear about North Korea. Like, there's brutal and authoritarian, and then there's idiotic Cobra Commander-esque supervillainy that you'd have to be some kind of idiot to take at face value, like that time the West reported that Un fed one of his generals to his dogs, only for that general to turn up alive and well some time later.

The North Korean government has asked its citizens to watch what they eat until 2025. That’s when the country expects to reopen its border with China following the COVID-19 shutdown.
Citizens are already feeling the effects of the food shortages, as the nation’s food supply currently can’t meet the demand. And let’s not forget the soaring prices of just about everything.
Kim Jong Un’s ask, to eat less food and tighten their belts for at least another three years, is devastating to North Koreans who are already wondering how they’re going to see themselves through the winter.

>Since early 2009, the United States has provided virtually no aid to North Korea, though episodically there have been discussions about resuming large-scale food aid. Additionally, the Obama Administration officials have said that they would be willing to consider other types of aid if North Korea takes steps indicating that it will dismantle its nuclear program, a prospect that most analysts view as increasingly remote. As of March 2014, barring an unexpected breakthrough, there appears little likelihood the Obama Administration will provide large-scale assistance of any type to North Korea in the near future.

I wouldn't want to live in North Korea though. I showed a video of those DPRK troops hitting each other with hammers as KJU and his sister watched giggling to my mom recently and she was like "gahh turn it off." She's cool because she's interested in this crazy stuff like me, but even that was a bit too much for her. Okay, those troops probably volunteered for that job, but abusing your body like that for the leader is some pretty extreme bullshit. Like, are you fucking kidding me?

Why is there a monarchy in this "communist" country? That doesn't make any sense. Frankly, I think the main reason the DPRK exists is because it's a buffer zone for China to keep the U.S. away. But if the U.S. really did pull out of South Korea and Asia, then there would be no reason for the country to exist anymore. Meanwhile, China does more trade with South Korea than with North Korea. They just don't want American troops on their border. That's why North Korea is a country. It's not because of some mystical Juche power. So, the DPRK is like a dog. Once upon a time, it wasn't so crazy and bitey, and actually helped scare off would-be burglars and you were even kind of proud of what a tough little sonofabitch he was. Now he's always barking, straining at the leash, trying to bite the neighbors, etc.

Also your conception of North Korean aggression is exaggerated. While it does express enmity towards the South Korean and American governments, it does so out of projecting strength to avoid being attacked itself - to show that it's too spiky of a hedgehog to step on. Many times its nuclear tests appear unprovoked, but if you dig you will often find that not long before such a show of strength, the US will hold a joint-training with the south near the DMZ or something, which is partially used as a threat. It's like talking shit back to someone who stirs it up in the first place with yourself, so as to not be walked all over.

China, Russia Ask U.N. to End Sanctions so North Korea Can Import Bolts, Utensils, Vacuums
https://www.newsweek.com/t-1645645
China and Russia are asking the U.N. to end key sanctions against North Korea, according to the Associated Press, which obtained a draft resolution given to Security Council members.

The resolution says that the sanctions should be lifted "with the intent of enhancing the livelihood of the civilian population" of North Korea. It also encourages North Korea and the U.S. to revive diplomatic discussions. The sanctions have been in place since 2006 and have become steadily tougher over the years.

The new resolution calls on U.N. member nations to provide "goods, materials, technology, and financial services needed by North Korea to combat COVID-19, improve livelihoods, and develop the economy," according to the AP…

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said in 2018 that the sanctions had cut off all North Korean exports and 90 percent of its trade and disbanded the pool of workers that North Korea sent abroad to earn hard currency.

<For decades the claims by North Korea and China of U.S. use of biological weapons have been dismissed precisely because the evidence came from Communist or supposed Communist-friendly sources. Existing evidence in U.S. archives was considered suggestive, but circumstantial. A military historian who examined the issue claimed that according to the secret record to which he was privy, the U.S. was incapable of waging biological warfare during the early 1950s.

<Meanwhile, in 1998, two Cold War scholars, Kathryn Weathersby and Milton Leitenberg, associated with the Woodrow Wilson Center, published documents, allegedly from former Soviet archives, detailing an elaborate hoax to manufacture false evidence of U.S. biological weapons attack.


<It wasn’t until September 2020 that evidence from U.S. archives was published that appears to definitively document U.S. BW attack. The evidence consists of declassified CIA communications intelligence reports, dozens of which quote U.S. Army intercepts of North Korean and Chinese military units describing “bacterial” attacks, including by use of insect vectors, in a style similar to that of Japan’s Unit 731 during World War II.
