Thread for news and discussions of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, its material conditions, the status and health of its socialist tradition, disproving common myths about it, etc.

As one of the few Socialist states, it's necessary we protect the DPRK from the attacks of Western Capitalism.
But that doesn't mean that the DPRK should stagnate. Reforms, on non-economic and non-political topics - i.e on social issues - can improve the DPRK's standing with the wider world.
Would it kill them to maybe tolerate gay people a little? Maybe cut down on the quasi-religious cult of personality? Tone down the racism?
Firstly North Korea is incredibly racist. It's illegal to race mix, even with other East Asians who aren't Korean. As far as I'm aware the only state in the world where this is law.
The Chondoists, for all their great revolutionary character, are also incredibly hyper-racist and view Koreans as the chosen race, the superior race in much the same way the Orthodox Jews of Israel view themselves as the chosen race. That thinking of racial superiority can lead to some pretty nasty places.
I don't think the DPRK give two shits about what Western armchair socialists think of them, but if they could work on a few minor issues of social rights (where it doesn't conflict with ensuring the prosperity and defence of the Socialist state) ie. say, preventing discrimination against homosexuals, legalise interracial relationships, and reducing the racial elements to Juche and Chondoist ideology?
It would take time to change attitudes and I'm not saying go full gay marriage sex orgies with weed, but with a few little steps and maybe then they'd begin to gain wider support from Socialists internationally.
More support means more power at the table, normies would have to reconsider their view of North Korea as just some big evil bad guy if they made such changes.
Just a thought. Kim, if you read this please take it into consideration.

Fake news. There are plenty of Zainichi (Japan resident) Koreans who immigrated from Japan in the 60s and 70s and brought Japanese wives with them. Kim himself is possibly 1/4 Japanese. Also the American defector Joe Dresnok's 3rd wife was a Korean (who herself was half-black).
This is a speech by Kim Jong Il where he explicitly condemned racism and the concept of "superior races":

Confusing de jure legality with the de facto situation is one thing. Confusing the words of one clown with reality is another thing entirely.

I'll read that document you linked and I'll be glad to see if I've been wrong about the official stance of the WPK on race. But there is a very strong racial element to the Chondoists at the very least.

Lol no
Korea's standing with the wider world is the product of them trying to develop nuclear weapons, as well as the opportunism of other countries who don't want to alienate their economy from the southern Korean market.
While fighting against discriminations inside the country would be nice, it won't be useful for your stated end. Plus the West will always try to make shit up about them anyway.

Even if Korea opened their market and went fully capitalist in one instant, they still wouldn't receive much foreign capital. Their economy is too small with basically no resources beside coal to leverage their position like Iran and especially Russia do to alleviate the sanctions.

The best course of action is to continue the nuclear program and develop powerful ballistic capabilities to lower the reliance on maintaining a large conventional military to deter potential invaders. Only after that, then the liberated resources should be invested in research and other areas with large growth potential in order to follow the Chinese path.

The number one goal of Korea should be to fight its way into being recognized as a nuclear weapon state, so that the UN sanction supposed to prevent nuclear proliferation could be removed. This is the area where China should do more in my opinion.

>who don't want to alienate their economy from the southern Korean market.


ironically the south koreans wouldl open up buisnesses in the north. A lot of southern chaebols are suffering from buisness problems due to high wages, increasing labor strikes and very good working conditions. Alongside with other factors modern south korea is a lot like the us during the 1960s. And just like china, north korea could theoretically exploit that. And despite the southern superstructre and etc ultimately the chaebols follow money. And what they would see in the north is cheap fucking labor.
>Even if Korea opened their market and went fully capitalist in one instant, they still wouldn't receive much foreign capital Their economy is too small with basically no resources beside coal

you can say the same thing regarding south korea but it still developed(though with american and japanese investment…which china can do instead)

Japan freaking out over a missile test a few minutes ago. Apparently there were evacuation alarms in Hokkaido. The missile was airborne for approximately 50 minutes before impacting the sea, and likely was not armed with a warhead.

Not any anon, but this exactly happened to me when I moved to the PNW of the US. It drove me nuts, and unurinically felt my sanity decreasing. I felt I was my identities first (gay, PoC, etc) then my own individual. I then moved back to my country and it was a relief. I now live in a non-anglo European country and I don't feel this "actor" feeling. YMMV of course. That's just how I felt.

i think it's more like the opposite, that we are in a state of hypervigilance and are needing to constantly supply our own injunctions to navigate exploitative and dangerous situations

individualism as per that book's claims is something that developed later, from literacy and stuff, being able to counter authoritative introjections. We'd be on the far left-brained side of the spectrum, focused on conscious intentional action rather than passive being. I'd like to just say it's probably not exactly related to this and more to do with anxiety and trauma in an exploitative and dangerous world of individualism… (tho tbh depression might counter my point, since it is relatively very high in the US, and it's characterized by a mix of rumination _and_ introjection, making it a dominance of language in both the left-brained conscious and bicameral sense… smth to think about ig)

Anyway, here's the transcript

The World Cup brings together the best national teams and players from across the globe, encourages
interaction between different cultures, aims to create long-term legacies, and occasionally creates a huge upset on the pitch.
The 1966 tournament in England was the highpoint in English football and made household names of Geoff Hurst and Bobby Moore. Yet, in the North East town of Middlesbrough, a bunch
of ‘mystery men’ from controversial qualifiers North Korea became equally renowned, none
more so than Pak Doo Ik, whose goal against football giants Italy brought about the greatest shock in World Cup history. His strike at Middlesbrough’s Ayresome Park stadium sent the Azzurri tumbling of the tournament, secured the Asian minnows a quarter-final berth and cemented a friendship between North Korea’s footballers and the local football faithful that has endured into the twenty-first century against a backdrop of challenging diplomatic relations and international political
fallout.
The North Korean’s victory that stunned the football world was all the more remarkable given their unorthodox route to the Finals in England. For the 1966 tournament FIFA allocated only one qualification place to all nations from the Africa, Asia and Oceania associations. The Confederation of Africa Football - also riled at FIFA’s placing of the pariah state of South Africa in Asian qualification because of the political sensitivities in the continent
(although subsequently disqualified) - boycotted the tournament. Withdrawal by South Korea as a result of logistics, concerns that participation by their footballers
in the qualifiers would prohibit the individual players from competing in the 1968 Olympic Games, or, more cynically, in fear of defeat by their northern neighbours - meant it was
left to Australia and North Korean to contest the sole qualification spot. A two-legged play-off held in neutral Cambodia brought a 9-2 aggregate win for the Asian minnows,
including a stunning 6-1 win in the opening encounter. The Koreans’ victory, just over a decade after the Korean War, posed a diplomatic headache for a UK government that did not recognise the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). As revealed by the research of Professor Martin Polley, the Foreign Office were in fact exploring options to prevent the Koreans from participating in the World Cup. In their ground-breaking Foundations of Managing Sporting Events: Organizing the 1966 FIFA World Cup, business historians Dr Alex Gillett and Dr Kevin Tennent’s have described North Korea’s qualification as having made‘ interaction between football and international diplomacy unavoidable’. Ultimately, this interaction brought compromise, including an agreement to refer to DPRK as ‘North Korea’ and even excluding the flag from a commemorative
World Cup stamp. In Middlesbrough, the prospect of seeing the North Koreans – who were drawn to play all
their Group 4 games at the town’s Ayresome Park - generated little enthusiasm locally, an apathy evident in the stadium attracting the lowest attendances of the tournament.
Yet there was a curiosity about the Koreans on Teesside, with early signs of bonds between the new ‘home team’ and locals evident in young supporters’ attendance of their
training sessions and the local press chronicling the Koreans’ tournament preparations. Even Alderman Jack Boothby, Mayor of Middlesbrough, promised the Koreans support, declaring that
‘You wear the same colours as Middlesbrough, we will shout for you’. In the opening match at Ayresome Park, those who did turn out witnessed echoes of recently
relegated Middlesbrough. The new ‘home team’ suffered a 3-0 defeat to the USSR and were bullied by their more physical opponents. North Korea’s prospects of progression, or even recording any points, looked even
more bleak in their next match, as they fell behind to an early Chilane penalty – a goal greeted with silence from the Boro faithful. However, only minutes from elimination, the Koreans sent the crowd into raptures with a late equaliser from Pak Seung Jin (Zin).
The local newspaper, the Evening Gazette’s journalist Cliff Mitchell, captured the emotions of the moment: When the equaliser came, some electric strip lighting in the Press refreshment room up
in the stand at Ayresome Park was brought down by the stamping of a crowd that has well and truly ‘adopted’ the Asians…the Koreans, obviously heartened by the fact that they were cheered every time they were on the ball, attacked with tremendous enthusiasm…
North Korea were given little hope in their final group match against Italy, one of the pre-tournament favourites and a world football force, but this did not deter the majority of the Middlesbrough crowd, who drowned out the noise of some 3,000 Italian supporters at Ayresome Park. In the days before substitutions at the World Cup, Italy were reduced to ten men due to an injury to Bulgarelli and the North Koreans took full advantage minutes before half time with a Pak Doo Ik strike. Despite an Italian onslaught, the underdogs held on. The final whistle was greeted with ‘uproar’ and BBC commentator Frank Bough
exclaimed ‘this stadium has never had support like this for years and years’.
The North Koreans declared ‘our success is due to the support given by the citizens of Middlesbrough and because our players fought for the fatherland’. The Soviet’s defeat
of Chile the following night confirmed the Koreans progress and 3,000 Boro fans headed to Goodison Park to support their new heroes. The Koreans took a 3-0 lead over Eusebio’s Portugal in the quarter final before eventually going out 5-3, bringing to an end the first chapter of the Middlesbrough-North Korean love affair. The connection was in hiatus until the early twenty-first century, when The Game of Their Lives documentary by Dan Gordon and Nick Bonner, which explored the story of 1966, reignited the Boro-Pyongyang flame. Filmed in late 2001 after the North Korean government granted unprecedented interview access to the former players and permissions to film in North Korea, the rediscovery of the international connection led to Gordon and Bonner pursuing proposals to bring the North Korean heroes back to Teesside. The idea gained the support of leading figures,
including local MP Frank Cook, the Ambassador of the Republic of South Korea, and Middlesbrough FC Chairman Steve Gibson who told Gordon: The story of the North Korean’s heroics in the 1966 World Cup is the stuff of legends
up here in Middlesbrough. They are still warmly remembered and I am thrilled that, through your programme, their remarkable tale will now reach a wider audience. Please pass on our best wishes to the players and the people that you will meet on your trip. Supported by financial and in-kind backing from numerous quarters including Middlesbrough Council and Middlesbrough FC, the 1966 World Cup heroes made a glorious return to Teesside
in October 2002.
The Game of Their Lives was screened at the town’s cinema and the town was decorated to mark the occasion. With the North Korean flag flying above Middlesbrough Town Hall,
the Speaker of Middlesbrough, Ken Hall, hosted a civic reception for the Koreans just as Mayor Boothby had done 36 years previously, whilst there was also a celebration dinner
held at the Riverside Stadium, Ayresome Park’s successor. At Boro’s home game against Leeds United, the Koreans received a hero’s welcome on the pitch and the Middlesbrough fanzine Fly Me To the Moon even produced a ‘DPRK Special’, its centrefold featured a letter from the footballers of 1966 to the citizens of Middlesbrough declaring:
The cheering voices of the citizens of Middlesbrough [from 1966] remain fresh still in our memory…we can clearly remember the people of Middlesbrough who had warmly welcomed us, enthusiastically supported us during our game against Italy and even followed us up to Liverpool…we are looking forward to seeing you in the stadium with warm and friendly feelings of 36 years ago.

"When Stalin was alive, everything was going well in the Soviet Union. But after Khrushchev came to power, things started to go wrong. Modern revisionism appeared in the Soviet Party and the Soviet people began to suffer from ideological diseases. He forgot the care his leader had taken in his upbringing: he vilified Stalin under the pretext of the cult of personality, expelled all senior revolutionaries loyal to Stalin from the Political Bureau of the Party and stripped them of their Party membership. Once, while visiting the Lenin Mausoleum, Rim Chun Chu met Molotov on Red Square in Moscow after his dismissal. Molotov advised him to faithfully carry forward the ideology and achievements of his leader without succumbing to revisionism, taking into account the precedent of the Soviet Party. At that time, Rim Chun Chu understood very well that if the question of succession was not properly resolved, both the revolution and the Party would perish. As the bitter lessons of history have taught us, the essential quality of a successor is loyalty and moral duty to the leader and his cause. Loyalty to the leader cannot be separated from moral obligation. Loyalty to the leader and moral duty are the first and most important qualities a successor must possess."

come on this is ridiculous and just because its to the benefit of a state that came out of a socialist tradition whatever we think of it, that's no excuse for sloppy arguments

There are plenty of places that 'look nice' in India as well but that doesn't change the fact that its got some of the poorest and most wretched areas on the entire planet.

I would strongly suspect according to all of the evidence that nowhere in the DPRK is actually like that contrary to what westoid propaganda would have you believe but no doubt its also a tough, austere life in a blockaded and sanctioned country in a state of near constant military mobilisation, yeah. You no doubt in many respects probably live a better life even as a western worker sitting in the heart of imperialism and capitalism.

At least this is what I've gathered from life in East Germany, hard to say what it's like in Based Korea exactly.

Russia has resumed sending oil to sanctions-hit North Korea for the first time since 2020, deepening cooperation between the two nations that the US claims also includes sending arms from Pyongyang to help the Kremlin’s war in Ukraine.
A report released this week from a United Nations sanctions committee said Russia began sending refined petroleum products to North Korea in December 2022, which has continued into 2023. The shipments had been halted in about October 2020, the data showed, but Russia has sent about 67,000 barrels of oil since it restarted the flow.
The resumption of oil shipments comes as cooperation between the long-time partners has picked up in recent months, raising concerns that both nations may be evading sanctions in a partnership that helps North Korea’s beleaguered economy and funnels arms to Russian President Vladimir Putin for his attack on Ukraine.
Russia and North Korea appeared to have resumed trade over their sole rail link late last year, according to satellite images published by the 38 North website. The link had been closed in February 2020 when Kim Jong Un sealed his borders against the emerging Covid-19 threat.

Because moving towards full communism in the short term is impossible for a small state under siege. Kim still mentions communism in his speeches and it is mentioned in their media too.
There are other examples of Marxist-Leninist states which did not have the word "communism" in the constitution. Albanian constitution did not mention it until 1976, despite being controlled by communists starting in 1944.

First of all it’s important to note that the constitution of the DPRK never mentioned Communism, or even Socialism until 1972.
These were the changes that occurred concerning Communism:

(Pre-2009 version of Article 29)
Socialism and Communism are built by the creative labour of the working masses, who have been freed from exploitation and oppression. The State renders the labour of our working people, who do not worry about unemployment, more joyful and worthwhile, so that they willingly work with conscious enthusiasm and creativeness for society, organizations and for themselves.
(Modern Version of Article 29)
Socialism is built by the creative labour of the working people. Labour in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is independent and creative labour of the working people, freed from exploitation and oppression. The State renders the labour of our working people, to whom unemployment is unknown, more joyful and worthwhile, so that they willingly work with conscious enthusiasm and creativeness for society, the collective and themselves.

(Pre-2009 Version of Article 40)
The DPRK shall, by carrying out a thorough cultural revolution, train the working people to be builders of Socialism and Communism equipped with a profound knowledge of nature and society and a high level of culture and technology, thus making the whole of society intellectual.
(Modern Version of Article 40)
The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea shall, by carrying out a thorough cultural revolution, train all the people to be builders of Socialism equipped with a profound knowledge of nature and society and a high level of culture and technology, thus making all the people well-versed in science and technology.

I couldn’t find an english translation for the older version of Article 43, basically it first mentioned people of the Communist type, then people of the Juche type, now it has been rewritten to pillars of Socialism.
(Modern Version of Article 43)
The State shall embody the principles of socialist pedagogy so as to raise the rising generation to be genuine patriots who will fight for society and collective, for the country and the people, to be pillars of Socialism who are knowledgeable, morally sound and physically healthy.

Those were the only mentions of Communism that existed in the entire constitution.

More detail about the American who defected:
>Army Private 2nd Class Travis King, 23, was accused of punching a man several times in the face at a club on September 25 last year, Seoul court records indicate. Two weeks later, on October 8, Korean authorities responded to another dust-up involving King, who was allegedly displaying “aggressive behavior,” according to the court documents. When police put him in the backseat of the patrol car, King reportedly spouted expletives and insults aimed at Koreans, the South Korean army, and the police. He then kicked the patrol car door several times, resulting in about 584,000 won, or $460, in damages, the ruling said.

My school (5EYES but not burger) was actually approached to do a student exchange program with an NK school, although that idea didn't go down to well with conservative rich-neighbourhood families, I heard. There are enough exchange students and Western teachers (e.g. language, compsci) for it to make news every once in a while.

South Korea has double the population and an economy maybe a 100 times bigger, North Korea is still a somewhat agrarian country that depends on food aid, whose economy is heavily impaired by American, EU, Russian and UNSC sanctions, that is spending most available resources on the military.
They just don't have the capacity to generate near the amount of electricity the south or China do, it's frankly ridiculous to say NASA is conspiring to make NK look bad, Chinese and Russian pictures would show the same thing NASA pictures show.

<KCNA Report on Interim Findings of Investigation into American Solider


>Pyongyang, August 16 (KCNA) – KCNA issued the following report:


>In the joint security area of Panmunjom on July 18, Juche 112 (2023), there happened an incident in which Travis King, a private 2nd class of the U.S. Army in south Korea, illegally intruded into the territory of the DPRK.


>At 15:30 on July 18, King, who accompanied tourists to the joint security area of Panmunjom, came to be kept under control by soldiers of the Korean People's Army on duty as he deliberately intruded into the area of the DPRK side between the room for the DPRK-U.S. military contacts and the rest room of security officers along the Military Demarcation Line.


>According to an investigation by a relevant organ of the DPRK, Travis King admitted that he illegally intruded into the territory of the DPRK.


>During the investigation, Travis King confessed that he had decided to come over to the DPRK as he harbored ill feeling against inhuman maltreatment and racial discrimination within the U.S. Army.


>He also expressed his willingness to seek refugee in the DPRK or a third country, saying that he was disillusioned at the unequal American society.

>The National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) extends the warmest revolutionary greetings to the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) as it celebrates its 76th anniversary in the leadership of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). The alliance of underground revolutionary organizations of the Filipino people fighting for national freedom and democracy has profound respect and admiration for the party of the working class and people of North Korea—the party that led the struggle for a country that is independent from imperialism and is building socialism.

more context would be appreciated. I think it is necessary to understand that multiculturalism under free market is a different thing from multiculturalism not in a free market society. Cultures under free market get simplified and objectified and turned into commodities that get turned into parodies of the original, still doesn’t justify the statement made in the text. Also it is likely that further two parts of Korea develop further they become more different in culture, language and values which makes unification less likely and more violent, this could be the reason for this statement.

Standard bourgeois nationalist line. Rather than viewing socialist society as the only context in which a truly multinational, multiracial society can exist with real equality (USSR during its revolutionary period and Cuba being prime examples) they are uncritically accepting the bourgeois conception of race as scientific and irreconcilable, and of nation as only being able to persist in a "homogeneous" (a word/conception which inherently requires the idealist erasure of internal contradictions) society.

The idea of the "homogeneous" nation or state is absurd on its face and is a historical falsehood. Even the so-called "homogeneous" status of the Nordic states (which many reactionaries cite as the reason why their social-democracy "works", as opposed to social-imperialism), is a mythology constructed by these states as a means to both legitimize themselves and pave the way for the bourgeois/fascist project of exploiting the land and peoples they control. Ask the Sámi people how homogeneous a society Sweden, Norway, or Finland is, I'm sure they'd be happy to enlighten you as to how many were murdered to achieve that illusion. It's especially absurd to view the "multinational, multiracial" concept as nothing more than a means to "Americanize" Korea. The United States itself actively seeks homogeneity despite the claims of the "progressive" wing of its fascism. There are tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of indigenous women alive today who have been sterilized by Federal and state governments against their will. Black culture is wrung out and commodified for all its worth and discarded when white people are finished with it. Immigrants are told that we are a "melting pot" while their cherished family and cultural practices are regarded with fear and revulsion until they warp them into barely-recognizable husks more palatable to white tastes. In every instance "homogeneity" is nothing more than a mask the dominant nation puts on to pretend it doesn't need to come to terms with its own chauvinism. "Why work on myself?" it says, "everyone agrees with me anyways!" A so-called "Worker's Party" adopting that conception and not doing an iota of work to analyze the conditions of its greatest global enemy (evidenced by its absurdly out-of-touch view of the US) is deeply alarming.

Their conception of "multiracial" is similarly alarming. Like >>1602410 said, there is a legitimate critique to be made of these concepts in the context of bourgeois society, where they cannot genuinely exist and instead act as smokescreens for national exploitation and imperialism. For those of us fighting for the construction of the dictatorship of the proletariat it's critical that we have a firm conception of what's scientific and what isn't. Race, in any respect, is an unscientific term with no material basis. Bourgeois forces hastily and messily redefine it constantly once each conceptualization is revealed as unworkable. First it was about spirit (or original sin even!), then it was about skull shape and IQ, then it was about genetic traits, and now we're throwing in mitochondrial DNA. Whatever arbitrary correlation pseudoscientists thought they found would be magically the reason why one group in western society is dominant over all others, and the differences between the "civilized" and "uncivilized" the reason why social strife persists. No, class struggle cannot possibly be a thing, there aren't material differences in interest between different sections of production, you see Stalin was really just a dumb Asiatic Georgian and that's why he was a communist! Yet constantly bourgeois ideologues are hounded by the age-old (and correct) statement that "correlation doesn't equal causation" and are only able to maintain race as an immutable, "scientific" trait by restricting the masses view of the greater context that these trends arise in. Race quickly falls apart with even cursory knowledge of the genuine causes of inequality and destitution in capitalist society, and on the intellectual front the emerging study of epigenetics is likewise challenging dominant pseudoscience.

All of this is to say that the principal relevancy of race to the communist movement is in seeking reparations for what racialized people are owed from the bourgeois class (as part of the wider project of the oppression of that class in the DotP) and actively challenging the racialized superstructure in bourgeois society which maintains a class collaborationist attitude among many. The correct response to western "multiracial" narratives is to correctly state that only socialism and later communism can actually bring about such an equal and equitable society. Instead, the Worker's Party accepts bourgeois pseudoscience as fact and, rather than fighting against the west on the home turf of the scientific working class, has decided to fight on the terrain the west has chosen for them. They're being baited into a trap position to alienate them from the wider movement, and fell for it hook, line, and sinker. I would be less harsh about these critiques if the Worker's Party still showed any real interest in taking part in these international line struggles and actually sought to be a part of the International Communist Movement, but they have made it clear that they are uninterested outside of performative greetings and window dressing.

<S. Korea Considers Suspension of Deconfliction Agreement with N. Korea Because of Hamas Attack
>South Korean Defense Minister Shin Won-shik is pushing Seoul to abandon a 2018 agreement that reduced the military presence along the demilitarized zone (DMZ). The military official believes North Korea could use tactics similar to Hamas to attack South Korea. The potential for Seoul to walk away from the deal meant to reduce tension on the peninsula comes as the chances for military confrontation between the US and North Korea has skyrocketed under the Joe Biden administration.
>Shin, who was appointed as Defense Minister on Saturday, argued that withdrawing from the agreement was necessary. “Hamas has attacked Israel, and the Republic of Korea is under a much stronger threat,” he said. “To counter (that threat), we need to be observing (North Korean military movements) with our surveillance assets, to gain prior knowledge of whether they are preparing provocations or not. If Israel had flown aircraft and drones to maintain continuous monitoring, I think they might have not been hit like that.”
>It is unclear why Shin believes North Korea, a nuclear power, would utilize the same tactics as Hamas, a stateless militia.
>The 2018 agreement signed between then-South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un created a buffer zone along the DMZ that prevents military confrontations. The deal was inked during a period of warning relations on the Korean Peninsula that was driven by Moon, and fostered by then-President Donald Trump’s willingness to reduce the American military presence and war games in South Korea.
>However, President Biden and Yoon have taken a more aggressive approach. Washington and Seoul have conducted several rounds of provocative military drills. Additionally, the White House has committed to deploying more weapons that can launch nuclear weapons to South Korea.
>On Thursday, the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier, and the fleet of warships in its strike group, arrived in South Korea. The ships will conduct trilateral war games with Japan and South Korea.
>North Korea sees trilateral military operations between Washington, Tokyo, and Seoul as the White House attempting to create an “Asian NATO.” Officials in Pyongyang have repeatedly warned that the US-led military activity on the Korean Peninsula is pushing the region towards a nuclear war.

https://www.easternangle.com/north-korea-to-raise-tourism-prices-and-move-to-the-us-dollar/

According to industry insiders North Korea could soon increase the cost of visiting the country, as well as converting from the Euro to the US dollar to settle accounts.

In a post released by Young Pioneer Tours the company stated that their ““partners in North Korea and beyond” have indicated the DPRK will change its preferred currency for settling tour company accounts from euros to dollars.

The reason for North Korea wanting, or rather needing to move to the US dollar is more about pragmatism than choice.

The strength of the dollar and its relative stability compared to the Euro make it not only more appealing, but also in some ways a necessity.

Key foreign goods, such as oil are still largely traded in dollars, with the US arguably going to war in both Iraq and Libya in order to preserve what some refer to as the PetroDollar.

This though is a situation that has the potential to change and not in favour of the United States, with Russia and China, the two major trading partners of North Korea now settling many transactions in RMB, rather than the US dollar. China in particular has been a firm advocate in pushing the RMB as an alternative reserve currency, although its chances of replacing the dollar in the short=term at least are considered slim.

Russia for its part is also now insisting that buyers of its natural resources, particularly countries from the Eurozone do so in Russian Roubles, meaning more and more countries are seeking alternatives to being controlled by US financiers. And if the BRICS countries eventually do manage to set up a currency that can rival the dollar for the settling of international trade for oil and beyond, then the days of the United States being able to financially bully the nations of the world may well become a thing of the past.

Of course the DPRK adheres to the principle "innocent until proven guilty" - at least officially. They also officially adhere to the right of free speech, right to assemble, and so on. The official statecraft and legislature isn't that edgy or shocking but pretty basic. But then again, as the anon said, good look finding someone who can tell you how it works in practice.

I imagine things not being black or white. Apolitical crimes like thievery, fraud or sexual assault may expect a fair unbiased trial. With crimes against the state, it's hard to imagine that trials are unbiased (I mean they are not in the West either) but you can probably still find minor ones where proceedings are fair.

South Korea: Man gets 14-month jail term for praising North in poem

A South Korean court has sentenced a 68-year-old man to 14 months in jail for praising the North in a poem.

Lee Yoon-seop advocated for unification in his piece that was published in the North's state media in 2016, South Korean media report.

He wrote that if the two Koreas were united under Pyongyang's socialist system, people would get free housing, healthcare and education.

He was convicted under a law that prohibits public praise of North Korea.

In the piece titled Means of Unification, Lee also argued that in a united Korea, fewer people will take their own lives or live in debt.

The poem was one of the winners of a poetry contest in the North in November 2016.

Lee had been jailed for 10 months in the past for a similar offence, The Korea Herald reported.

In its ruling on Monday, a Seoul court said he "continued to generate and disseminate a considerable amount of propaganda that glorified and praised the North", the Korea Herald said.

He posted comments online praising North Korea's military in 2013, while posting anti-state content on South Korean blogs and websites in subsequent years.

South Korea's National Security Act outlaws the praise and promotion of "anti-government" organisations.

>SEOUL, Jan 16 (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Monday called for the constitution to be changed to ensure that South Korea is seen as the "primary foe" and warned his country did not intend to avoid war should it happen, state media KCNA reported on Tuesday.
>Kim said the constitution should be amended to educate North Koreans that South Korea is a "primary foe and invariable principal enemy" and define the North's territory as separate from the South.
>North Korea should also plan for "completely occupying, subjugating and reclaiming" South Korea in the event of a war, and South Koreans should also no longer be referred to as fellow countrymen, Kim added, calling for the severing of all inter-Korean communication and the destruction of a monument to reunification in Pyongyang.

Not gonna argue but consider that North Korea is the most democratic system ever established in the Korean peninsula, that began with spontaneous committes in mid-20th century. Before that Korea was occupied by Japan and further in the past dominated by the Choson monarchy and its landlords.

The Kims are popular because Kim Il Sung is a founding father figure for this new Korean era. It is somewhat inevitable giving capitalist occupation of the South.

I think a resurgement in the international communist movement by new major revolutions could solve genuine points of critic such as bureaucratism, nationalism and isolation from international theorical debates really quickly in DPRK's case. Until then there's present conditions.

A Jaka Parker video from the streets of Pyongyang was posted on reddit.
https://old.reddit.com/r/interestingasfuck/comments/19ep8cv/heres_a_real_gopro_on_the_streets_of_pyongyang/

Jaka Parker was living in Pyongyang with his wife, who was a diplomat in the Indonesian embassy, so he had a lot of leeway to go around and film. He uploaded a bunch of videos from the DPRK when he was there, but je said it was difficult cause internet was slow and unreliable. As part of the embassy he had access to the regular internet (I'm guessing they allow embassies VPN access in their home countries). You can see more of his cycling videos and others on his channel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLuYqSDuNZmZTtpAXo2NaCaZaL23T4UJ-q

The response is predictable. Liberals will believe all this crazy, really put there shit about the DPRK then in the same breath say "Those North Koreans believe all kinds of crazy stuff and know nothing about the world!"

Probably just the recognition that enough time has passed with such different societies that North and South Korea likely won't ever see eye-to-eye based on a common heritage. The arch itself depicts two Korean women in traditional clothing, again a suggestion that Korea can be united based on its previous history as a unified country and tbqh, that's pretty unlikely now regardless of history as they're just too culturally different now.

A few days ago, Russia voted to suspend enforcement of the UN sanctions on the DPRK. What could this mean for Russia-DPRK relations? Could this mean military sales to the KPA?

>Worker councils (soviets) were disbanded due to counter-revolutionary activity.

That's revisionism. Councils were THE SOURCE OF POWER in USSR, it was literally in the constitution. SRs and trots were just butthurt over bolsheviks winning and have declared that councils were "disbanded" - ala "your councils aren't real councils because they don't vote for me"

I am friends with the chairman of a Juche study group (I won't say which one because that would be a doxx) who also has already written articles at Rodong Sinmun (the WPK newspaper). He is going to visit Pyongyang soon, and will probably have more freedom to walk around than tourists and journalists.

Any questions /leftypol/ has for him? Any requests?

 No.1809819

Just out of curiosity, without trying to sound disrespectful or ignorant:
1) is the agriculture of DPRK growing and being mechanized?
2) Is the country getting closer to develop more independence from external influences, like Russia and China, in the questions of manufactured goods and infraestrucure? (I hope North Korea doesn't get so much dependent of foreign trade and international relations like Cuba rn)

How many years do we give South Korea

 No.1812942

>>1812547
Either
a. the US empire collapses
b. the international revolution is completed and the communal society and the abolition of the state is reached
Of course b implies a but vice-versa is not true. Until the US and the "international community" continue to exist, her colonies, such as South Korea and Israel, will continue to exist as well to protect her interests around the globe.
So I'll give another 100 years to South Korea

There might be some silly questions, but…

>what do they think about the people living in imperialist countries and their vassals? Like Americans, South Koreans and the Japanese?
>would they like to be on better terms with these countries if they were to somehow stop being hostile to the DPRK?
>what do they think about China and their relationship with China?
>do they have any constructive criticism of the leadership of the WPK?
>what are their thoughts about the future of the DPRK?
>have North Koreans heard about the ludicrous propaganda stories the US made up about North Korea?
>how is the food there?

I'm pretty interested in many things he prolly wont be able to answer, like the NK people view of their government and political processes, how their economy and development is doing, their press, their view on the western world, how easy it is to access general internet for random ppl, their view on the west, south korea and china, how developed is the countryside compared to the capital, labor laws and conditions (holidays, work safety, work hours, social services)
Im also curious to know about their smartphones and supposed internal internet
but Im guessing your guy isnt there for an indepth analysis of north korean society. Any hint on those questions would still be appreciated.

He is in Korea right now, and I can chat with him on fbi.gov, Telegram, no problem whatsoever. However, he says you need to pay for internet access, although it is readily available, very few people can probably access it since it's one USD for ten minutes. That's quite hefty for the locals.

So far, he said as long as they trust you, and are not a tourist, they welcome lively political debates, actually. Most of the stuff he talked about with them was how shitty South Korea is, and he said they actually know quite a bit about how South Korea looks like. It would be no culture shock to them, but they don't envy them. He hasn't been "testing the waters" yet with regards to more heated topics.
