How do you class North Korea today?

Post by Stox 16 on Sat Dec 31, 2011 4:26 am

So is North Korea still a socialist country? or is it a authoritarian one family state?

North korea needs to settle a peace and furthermore friendship with south korea. This will lift sanctions and then they can come to the party! There is a huge party going on in the rest of the world, and everyone that is law abiding can trade with each other. If they were to relax and furthermore try to get rid of all the strereo types of the older generation, then they could make progress.

If they were to abide by humanitarian law, the leaders, as individuals, would be able to capitalise and make even more money. The people of north korea love the leadership - maybe it is a bit of brainwashing, but none the less, they are reasonably happy.

If the sentiment is to be left alone, why is this so? They could wash their citizens in luxuries if they opened the doors to free trade, and it is up to the leaders to make this happen.

Maybe it is the brainwashing of the military on the leadership that leads to this? Maybe the leaders are afraid for their own safety? Surely being in such close proximity to the military would do that to you... Maybe they need to go on a holiday to america, and visist parliament there. I am sure they will see a more relaxed way of life, and who can handle the stress? Can the north korean leaders handle the stress of being stiff all day? They will surely be unhappy like that, or less happy. If they want to be happy - the leadership - then they need less to worry about. There is nothing to lose with so much to gain.

I am not suggesting elections or anything, I am suggesting looking at saudi arabia and figuring what the heck they are doing right to get the same sort of thing going...

I don't claim to know a great deal about Saudi Arabia, other than that it's rich in oil, and that it has a royal family with about 500 members living in opulence. I believe there are virtually no taxes, but the government doesn't provide very much either, apart from the free public entertainment of regular beheadings.

I have read reports that there is a great deal of discontent in the country with the corruption and the extremes of wealth, but then we could say the same about the UK at the moment.

When a sovereign nation is a major source for something you MUST have, little is gained by pointing out to them their perceived deficiencies.

Not unlike trying to pull a girl you fancy at the moment.

The UK at the moment does not embrace burying bound women in the ground with heads and upper bodies exposed, backing up dump trucks full of heavy stones, and unloading heavy stones unto the women's exposed heads and upper bodies. One crime for which such punishment is condoned is women allowing themselves to be raped and thus embarrassing and shaming their fathers and/or husbands and/or other male owners.

When I was passing though had two days there Bobby. corruption is a very big part of that country. it take just about five mins to find it or see it in action. just did not like the place at all myself
