>Kim Jong Un and Ri Sol Ju Enjoys Performance for Day of Shining Star


What's the material explanation for the cult of personality and worship of dead presidents in the DPRK?

I think its because they're heroes of the revolution that kicked the japanese imperialists out and freed Korea.

They're like Che, Fidel or Chavez; but I think that juche puts some emphasis on the leader as the figure that moves the nation forward, hence the stronger CoP

Just calling out his name, makes waves of joy,
Rise up inside our chests
Because of this uniquely great man who guides us through our lives
The whole people is overwhelmed with pride
Inside his bosom of affection and determination, we all stand united
The power of our unity is infinite
The bright shining light of the Sun leads us into our future


That is the literal most cringe thing I ever read, anon.

Compare it to the Egyptian loyalist text.
"Just calling out his name, makes waves of joy, rise up inside our chests"
^Reminds me of the phrase "Khuum for every body" (not to be confused with coom) in this.
Being Lord, aka bread-giver, and provider for the whole people is very substantial… it isn't only that they seek goods, but also bodily health, from the sovereign of the body-politic.
Keep in mind, that Kings would heal their subjects who were infected with the royal touch. And that being Lord, also calls for a long life. "Long live the King".

This might be a gotcha moment.
What better expression of popular sovereignty could be said other than the People are God?
All that is left is to say, "I am the People!" I'd like to think

Anyone read Wilfred Burchett's This Monstrous War? Enjoying it so far. Maybe it's just residual brain poison, but the Americans and their Southern puppets seem just cartoonishly inept, evil, and petty, while the Northern and Chinese troops are superheroic to a similar degree. My brain keeps telling me that there must be at least some exaggeration - things like civilians spontaneously switching to handsome white trad outfits the moment the Japanese get owned, maybe.


>Researchers conducted interviews with 50 North Korean defectors, all but one of whom said they had been subjected to conditions that met the international legal definition of “forced labor,” according to the index.
I like how they don't disclose what concrete questions they asked and what they answered. They give a definition of slavery where they say that it's slavery when the state makes you work. So it's likely that they asked them "do you work for the government" "did you have civil duties" or whatever and since all that exists including a general conscription where the army is used to help with the harvest and construct buildings, they subsumed this "under slavery".


It's not forced labor when the workers are under duress and have no choice but to work for large corporations that don't pay them livable wages in order to eat… right?


Does anyone have any recommendations for unbiased reading on the DPRK?
I'll be sure to check this out


File: 1614223438240.pdf (2.3 MB, 194x300, KoreanWar.pdf)

Here's a PDF copy


File: 1614224383564.pdf (136.51 KB, 67x118, 369-Article Text-1142-1-10….pdf)

Found this article that seems to corroborate a lot of what I've read from Burchett. Not sure what sort of angle the author and the Journal of Conflict Studies is slanted towards, though. Lots more sources to dig into.


Thanks a whole lot!

Is Ismail's take on the DPRK any way accurate?


This almost seems like the opening song for some anime.
Was this officially posted by the DPRK media?

Actually, is there animation that's produced by the DPRK? Probably long time ago there was something of that sort posted to the thread.


That's not Ismail's take, it is what a guy he interviewed said.
And yes, the DPRK does accept support from where ever they can because of the current geopolitical situation. Sometimes this also includes reactionaries who fall for liberal horseshoe theory nonsense and think it is a good thing.


Yep, /co/ have discussed >>98342 a bit and there is a significant amount of porn of Lt. Vixen.


What a pretty city

What's the purpose of this party? What do they actually do?


To make it look like they have a socdem party? What else would they do? It's just propaganda.

How can people truly believe that everything showing people in the DPRK living normal lives is scripted or fake somehow?


Anti-communist ideology is a hell of a drug

I first thought this was some kind of New Age health freak talking about a Walmart


simple bro, the ones in the video were just state sponsored femboys.
Now apparently a refugee has "disappeared"


I thought it was going to be about texan supermarkets. When shit goes down, the shelves empty and the shelves are left with inedible shit lol.


“I thought they have supermarkets with nothing inside”
