You must be new here. There is not a single instance in this thread nor the China thread of people claiming NYT/BBC to be credible sources, nor are these particularly respected elsewhere on this board. You are making up a position, finding no evidence for it, only evidence to the contrary. Instead of fundamentally revising what you believe, you then construct a flip-flopping character, flipping back and forth between the shit you got in your head about this place before arriving and what you see actually getting said on here by the regulars.

The claim that Germany and Scandinavia have a bigger problem with slave-like living conditions seems absurd on the face of it. The US have an absolutely gigantic program of prison labor, so whatever concept of slavery-like conditions the WF project is working with must give little to no weight to that in order to get that sort of result.

As for Yeonmi Park, the person writing the NK section in the WF report Stacked Odds, see the vid related.

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.

When North Korean dress modestly, don't make out on the street, don't wear highly sexualized bikinis and don't legalize porn, it must necessarily be an expression of anti-LGBR sentiment and sexism for the imperialist narrative.

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.

Agricultural production has obviously improved within the last 10 years and malnourishment is no longer a problem, and though there have been issues recently due to floods as far as I know people are still getting fed. The country is very close to being self sufficient, and will probably become so in the next few decades. Due to a series of 5 year plans, light industry has been developed and amenities have increased. Millions of people now have smartphones. Non-communicable diseases are by far the largest cause of death, showing that the healthcare system is working as well as any western nation. Since 2017 both men and women are required to serve a term in the military, and gender discrimination is lower than in western countries. Military promotion is done by merit, with an officer corps almost completely made up from people promoted from private. There is 99% literacy in North Korea, compared to 71% literacy in AmeriKKKa. There is no unemployment and no homelessness whilst an 8 hour work day is maintained. Every household has a television and computer access is growing through communal computers, though still not common. Every family has a holiday home, even though they are probably built by the family. Workplaces have an hour or two of reading sessions at the end of the work day (something which I think lots of people on /leftypol/ need). Car ownership has visibly increased over the last 20 years, though it is impossible to find any figures on it. Electricity shortages are a problem and blackouts do happen, but Pyongyang at least is fully electicized. Some parts of the countryside are definitely poorer than the cities. Neoliberal propoganda claims that the GDP of the country is decreasing, even though it is clear that the standard of living has visibly increased drastically, and even then the country claims that the GDP has increased (I wonder who I trust…).

The country is no paradise at the moment, and it is still plagued by problems, but in many ways North Koreans live just as well as your average westernoid, and they are certainly better off than than people living in colonised countries. Despite problems I have with the leadership staying in one family, the government is overwhelmingly popular. This is all despite crippling and genocidal economic warfare waged by the USA.

I've never seen any photo of a non-military North Korea citizen wearing any type of leather jacket. You won't find any whether you scan through Kim Jong Il-era photos or modern ones, I'd like to be proven wrong. I suspect leather jackets, let alone the trench coat style, were never sold or worn in public to begin with in North Korea. So either leather jackets were always looked upon down as rebellious and were never worn in public like jeans or they were just never produced or imported into North Korea and were prohibitively expensive for anyone to purchase. Leather is not very practical clothing material, you can't wear it outside if it rains or snows, and there are more comfortable materials to wear indoors to stay warm; it's really just for fashion or if you're a fighter pilot.
If they did explicitly ban trench coat leather jackets they probably will make an exception for these type of jackets used as military uniforms like in these first two pictures if and only if Kim Jong Un isn't also in the photo op wearing his leather jacket.

North Korea Executes People for Watching K-Pop, Rights Group Says

At least seven people have been put to death in the past decade for watching or distributing K-pop videos, as the North cracks down on what its leader calls a “vicious cancer.”

SEOUL — North Korea has publicly executed at least seven people in the past decade for watching or distributing K-pop videos from South Korea, as it cracks down on what its leader, Kim Jong-un, calls a “vicious cancer,” according to a human rights report released on Wednesday.

​The group, ​ Transitional Justice Working Group, which is based in Seoul, interviewed 683 North Korean defectors since 2015 to help map places in the North where people were ​killed and buried​ in state-sanctioned public executions​. In its latest report, the group said it had documented 23 such executions under Mr. Kim’s government.

Since taking power a decade ago, Mr. Kim has attacked South Korean entertainment — songs, movies and TV dramas — which, he says, corrupts North Koreans’ minds. Under a law adopted last December, those who distribute South Korean entertainment can face the death penalty. One tactic of Mr. Kim’s clampdown has been to create an atmosphere of terror by publicly executing people found guilty of watching or circulating the banned content.

It's the gas chambers of North Korea.
Instead of gas, they lure traitors with free kpop concert tickets. Then they kill them after the show.

One of the most expensive mass execution methods devised in history.

Pretty insane that the article by Neoliberal Times claiming k pop listeners are executed has as a cover an event of a state funded kpop concert, even sanctioned by Kim himself. It almost feels like by showing all their cards at once, they can get away with lying more easily.

I believe in human dignity, and I hear that people deserve forgiveness for believing in their own government's propaganda, but I swear there is something peculiar about the Americans. Whenever I think of Americans the closest thing I see in my mind are Germans during WWII, a people who take their superiority over other people for granted and don't give a damn if people on the other side of the globe are starving because of their policy of extermination against the countries they deem to be "enemies".
I am pretty sure even Germans during WWII were less brainwashed than Americans and knew that the whole nazi trope was bullshit, they only ruled over for 12 years. But the Americans have believed their own lies for centuries now, is there still a way to convince them of the truth? Or is total nuclear or biological extermination the only thing that will put them back in their place?

It's fascinating how these people do not realize that there could be material reasons for someone to defect to the DPRK besides being a spy or having mental problems. If I was earning a middle income I'd probably not defect but if I was unemployed, maybe addicted, about to be homeless, etc. I'd simply just fuck off to the North. Especially since the North Korea media would gladly push that story, I probably even get an apartment in Pyongyang handed over to me for free.

People just look at the big economic divide between North and South and forget that the North still retains all the social guarantees while the South is really bad in providing for the less fortunate.

They have a huge infantry as well and like the soviets they do lots of snipers and mortars, it would be hell to go up against them. Their air-force is shit, they can shoot down drones and helicopters, but not modern fighter jets or missiles. China and the Dprk have a mutual defense pact, which might cover their gap in Air-power. They also have the largest submarine fleet of any military, that is old but functional. They probably sank a south Korean Corvette in 2010.

that seems like very ideological nitpicking and somehow i doubt they debated this with an actual juche theorist that actually has his shit put into practice. NK dont just wank to ethereal theory, they have a state to run under constant US siege.
and obviously, critics made from the depth of your neolib hellhole to an actually existing socialist state with 0 reliable source is silly. you're allowed to crit their theory if you can show how it failed them in the material reality. Taking random docs from original kim and saying the theory is bad is not how you analyze and crit present day NK.

basically id call them sectarian, ultraleft idealists armchair faggots themselves, that slur a socialist state despite having no good access to the real way things are run, which is the important part, no some purely immaterial theory.

also, even their theory critics are mediocre

These images aren't just one picture from a satellite. They need thousands of captures from months of orbiting to get a good picture. So, it is really easy to just not include as many images of the DPRK. This isn't even a massive conspiracy, it is trivial for them to make the DPRK look dark.

I have also heard that they use different wavelengh lightbulbs. I think there was even a pdf about this. But I don't have a link to that and I really don't know if it is real.

The DPRK does have energy issues and they have to turn their lights off if they are asleep, which is fair enough. But it isn't nearly as bad as the fascist media might want you to believe.

It's unclear and very politically motivated as there were no independent observers when the war broke out, and all testimonies come from one side or the other. The DPRK version is that South Korea started it by attacking the border at Ongjin and seizing Haeju and other towns, and this triggered the North Korean invasion. The capture of Haeju was actually officially reported by South Korea but later denied by its government (it was deemed a sort of misinterpretation). The most widely accepted version in the west is the pro-American, United Nations report which put all the blame on the DPRK and deemed it an unprovoked aggression.

The DPRK arguments on the causes of the war are:
1. That from 1948 to 1950, South Korean troops launched numerous intrusions and raids into North Korean territory (there was constant fighting around the 38th parallel), while their president Syngman Rhee and advisors kept urging about attacking the north and had publicly talked about this many times. Additionally, a military triumph in the north could reignite support for Rhee, whose situation was deteriorating. Rhee lacked popular support, had suffered a serious defeat in the May 1950 legislative elections and faced strong underground resistance as well as protests and mutinies (ie. Jeju uprising, Yeosu–Suncheon rebellion)
2. That South Korea (ROK) was an illegitimate state installed by the United States, filled with Japanese collaborators, war criminals, traitors and American officers, and had no right to exist in the first place. It was propped up after American forces overthrew the popular People's Republic of Korea in 1945 (a national government in the making). The ROK was repressive and murdered independence leaders (Kim Koo, Ryo Un Hyong) and between 1948-50 executed up to 200,000 koreans and arrested 500,000 more during political repressions (and later would go to account for the majority of crimes during the war). So in short the Korean war would've never happened without American interference.
3. That before the war, the United States had already decided that North Korea would be deemed the aggressor, and had prepared the legal groundwork so that responsibility be placed on the DPRK in the name of the United Nations, and to secure a quick intervention under command of the United States. And also that America had double standards on the 38th parallel and what constituted aggression. When North Korea invades the south, the parallel is treated as an international border. When US invades the north, the 38th parralel is deemed "an imaginary line" and American leaders stop caring about it.

>The Juche idea, the guiding ideology of socialism in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, was and is target of much criticism not only by the bourgeois media vehicles, from who we are already used to reading these types of content, but also by many progressives and so-called communists. Among the latter, stand out, in particular, Hoxhaists and Maoists, those who raise Enver Hoxha as a great defender of the purity of Marxism-Leninism against revisionism and those who follow “Marxism-Leninism-Maoism”, summarized by Abimael Guzmán, leader of the Sendero Luminoso, from Peru, as “the third and superior stage of Marxism-Leninism”.
>It is well known that between the followers of both lines there is a lot of friction, as well as between the main leaders of the two sides. However, when it comes to the Juche idea and socialism in Korea in general, they both embark on a common frenzy of criticism, most often frivolous. In an attempt to prove the "purity" and "superiority" of this or that idea, they launch attacks against the country that, at times, even assimilates and adheres to what is broadcast by the media at the service of capital and of imperialism, which is, in fact, something to be scared about, coming from communists.

Hostility toward North Korean defectors on rise in South Korea: Survey
Enmity toward North Korean defectors is growing in South Korea, a new survey shows, with nearly one in four respondents saying they feel negative about accepting North Koreans into society and nearly 70% saying they don’t want their children to marry a defector…

The institute’s latest survey of 8,000 South Koreans last fall showed negative sentiments about North Koreans have nearly doubled since 2016. That year, 12.1% of respondents reported negative feelings about defectors, while the latest survey showed 25.1% of respondents reported negative sentiments toward North Korean refugees in the country.

>The fundamental mission of our nuclear forces is to deter a war, but our nukes can never be confined to the single mission of war deterrent even at a time when a situation we are not desirous of at all is created on this land.


>If any forces try to violate the fundamental interests of our state, our nuclear forces will have to decisively accomplish its unexpected second mission.


>The nuclear forces of our Republic should be fully prepared to fulfil their responsible mission and put their unique deterrent in motion at any time.

Kim Jong-un declares Covid outbreak a ‘great disaster’

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/may/14/north-korea-kim-jong-un-declares-covid-outbreak-a-great-disaster

North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, has declared the country’s first Covid-19 outbreak a “great disaster” as it reported 21 more deaths.

State media said 174,440 people were newly found with fever symptoms on Friday alone as the country scrambles to slow the spread of Covid-19 across its unvaccinated population. North Korea said on Saturday that a total of 27 people have died and 524,440 fell ill amid a rapid spread of fever since late April. It said 280,810 people remain in quarantine.

Kim said he had “faith that we can overcome this malicious infectious disease within the shortest period possible,” the report added. The country imposed nationwide lockdowns on Thursday after confirming its first Covid-19 infections since the start of the pandemic.

Kim said they would be following the Chinese model of virus prevention.

“We should take lessons from the experiences and fruitful achievements in preventing virus of the China’s Communist party and its people,” he said.

Lacking vaccines, North Korea battles COVID with antibiotics, home remedies

https://www.reuters.com/world/asia-pacific/lacking-vaccines-nkorea-battles-covid-with-antibiotics-home-remedies-2022-05-16/

To treat COVID and its symptoms, state media have encouraged patients to use painkillers and fever reducers such as ibuprofen, and amoxicillin and other antibiotics - which do not fight viruses but are sometimes prescribed for secondary bacterial infections.

While previously playing down vaccines as "no panacea", media have also recommended gargling salt water, or drinking lonicera japonica tea or willow leaf tea three times a day.

"Traditional treatments are the best!" one woman told state broadcasters as her husband described having their children gargle with salted water every morning and night.

An elderly Pyongyang resident said she had been helped by ginger tea and ventilating her room.

"I was first scared by COVID, but after following the doctors' advice and getting the proper treatments, it turned out not a big deal," she said in a televised interview.

While not claiming that antibiotics and home remedies will eliminate COVID, North Korea has a long history of developing scientifically unproven treatments, including an injection made from ginseng grown in rare earth elements it claimed could cure everything from AIDS to impotence.

Some have roots in traditional medicines, while others have been developed to offset a lack of modern drugs or as "made in North Korea" exports.

>Jang Myong Il released an article under the title "The United States Must Not Forget Its Miserable Defeat in the Korean War."
>The article said.
>On June 25, 1950 the United States provoked the Korean War after thorough preparations in a bid to realize its wild ambition to occupy the whole of Korea and make it a stepping stone for aggression on the Asian continent. At that time, it thought that it could easily occupy the DPRK in its cradle by dint of numerical and technical superiority.
>The United States hurled to the Korean War one third of its ground force, one fifth of its air force, most of the Pacific Fleet, troops of 15 satellite countries, the south Korean army and the Japanese militarists, more than two million in all. It invested 165 billion US dollars of military spending and shipped over 73 million tons of war supplies, 11 times as much as those spent in the Pacific War.
>The DPRK, founded only two years before, was incomparable with the United States both in number of strength and hardware. The result of the war, however, was entirely beyond the expectation. In the three years of war the United States suffered huge human and material losses.
>The US magazine "US News and World Report" commented that the losses of the US forces in the Korean War are two times greater than those suffered by the United States in five big wars– the Independence War, the war in 1812, the Mexican War, the US-Spain War and the Philippine War. The myth of US mightiness that it was never defeated in more than 110 wars for nearly 180 years since its foundation was totally broken off in the Korean War.
>Noting that the Korean War in the 1950s can be called "showdown between A-bomb and rifles" which was fought by the DPRK in its cradle against the United States boasting of being the strongest in the world, the article continued.
>The secret of the DPRK's victory in this showdown lies in the Juche-based military idea, superb strategy and tactics and outstanding commanding art of the great leader Kim Il Sung, the iron-willed brilliant commander, and in the indomitable fighting spirit of the Korean People's Army and the Korean people who bravely fought with do-or-die resolve, firmly rallied around their leader.
>Today the DPRK, under the wise leadership of the respected Kim Jong Un, Supreme Commander of its Armed Forces and ever-victorious iron-willed brilliant commander, has possessed the military and technical upper hand which can destroy any forces seeking military confrontation with it at one stroke, an irresistible war deterrent.
>If the United States dares to recklessly provoke the DPRK, oblivious of its miserable defeat in the Korean War in the 1950s, it will not escape irretrievable disaster, the article warned.

Kim Jong Un says Korean peninsula on the ‘brink of war’
https://www.ft.com/content/7fdf4933-ea2d-4151-8f09-f98e2715e8c7
>North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has accused the US and South Korea of bringing the Korean peninsula to the “brink of war”, as Seoul and Washington prepare for their first large-scale joint military exercises in four years.

>In remarks reported on Thursday from an event on Wednesday to mark the anniversary of the end of the Korean war in 1953, Kim threatened to “wipe out” South Korean forces with nuclear weapons in the event of a confrontation.


>“Our armed forces are completely prepared to respond to any crisis, and our country’s nuclear war deterrent is also ready to mobilise its absolute power dutifully, exactly and swiftly in accordance with its mission,” North Korean state media reported Kim as saying.


>“It is a suicidal act, and absurd and extremely dangerous, to talk about military action against our country when we actually already have the most powerful weapon which you fear the most.”


>The joint US-South Korean military exercises next month will be the first large-scale drills since 2018, when they were scaled down ahead of a summit between Kim and then-US president Donald Trump. Since 2019, the exercises have been reduced to computer-simulated command post-training.


>This year’s exercises, to be held in late August and early September, will include joint aircraft carrier strike drills and amphibious landing training.


>…In his speech on Wednesday, Kim blamed the US for “demonising” Pyongyang’s “routine” military developments as “provocations”. He warned “military gangsters” in the South Korean government to stop issuing what he described as threats.


>North Korea’s foreign ministry issued a statement on Wednesday describing the joint US-South Korea exercises as being conducted with a “thick gunpowder smell”. It called the two countries “a horde of belligerents wanting the wretchedness of war”.


>The ministry also warned that this summer’s joint drills may “spread into the second Korean war”.


>…In an editorial this week, North Korean state newspaper Rodong Sinmun urged citizens “always to keep in mind the historic philosophy that the nature of the US imperialists and class enemies will never change and you must hate imperialism unconditionally”.

This pretty much debunks it, my view is that the myth of Songbun (Which roughly translates to social composition) is used to scare South Koreans, because its logic implies they would all be classified as an irredeemable caste. Here is the DPRK dictionary definition of Songbun, the last sentence is key: 사회계급적관계에 의하여 규정되는 사람들의 사회적구분 곧 사람들의 사상상 구성성분으로서 어떤 계급의 영향을 많이 받았고 어떤 계급의 사상이 그의 머리속을 지배하고있는가 하는것을 알기 위하여 출신과 직업, 사회생활의 경위에 의하여 사회성원을 사회적부류로 나눈것. 사람들의 성분은 고정불변한것이 아니라 생활환경과 조건이 달라지는데 따라 변한다. The concept of Songbun popped up in English speaking circles only around 2012 (Despite it apparently being extremely prevalent during the 1970-80s), however it does seem South Koreans have used it at least as far back as the 1990s. I will say that families who had relatives that fought with Kim Il Sung’s partisans have historically received a better quality of life compared to the average person as a type of reward, but it would be a ridiculous stretch to believe that certain families are coal miners for eternity because someone related to them lightly collaborated with a class enemy a few generations back. It is utterly ridiculous how widespread this generational punishment idea is, the sanctification of defector testimony has ruined any genuine attempt to understand the DPRK. It’s like using the testimony of a QAnon follower to understand the US Government.
