North Korea/DPRK is NOT a terrible place by DragonQuestWes North Korea/DPRK is NOT a terrible place by DragonQuestWes
More unpopular opinions from me, Yippee!

What you think you know about North Korea is probably not true. Kim Il-Sung/Jong-Il/Jong-Un aren't "gods" and they certainly aren't dictators either.

They do have elections in North Korea but they don't have "Presidential Elections" because of constituencies (there's no "President of North Korea" and "Eternal President Kim-Il Sung" doesn't mean much). Just look at the results of the latest election they've had. Former British Ambassador to North Korea, Peter Hughes came under fire all because he simply described his observation of the elections as just a celebrating festive attitude rather than demonizing it the entire time.

A Swiss businessman explains his experiences about what he saw in North Korea/DPRK which is hardly anything like the mainstream media said it was. And no he didn't just visit Pyongyang.

A Taiwanese news group went on a trip to North Korea to see what it's like over there and one girl from 5:15 to 5:40 of the video explains how different the reporting actually is when she was in the UK.

Dr. Margaret Chan of the United Nations' World Health Organization visited the country and said that the healthcare is something that "developing countries would envy."

There were programs established by both the local Red Cross and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to rebuild the villages as well as providing food, water, medicine etc.

A friend of a friend of mine visited North Korea/DPRK plenty of times to show what it was actually like over there and not what the media says they are.

South Korean Conservative news site Korea JoongAng Daily even admits that defectors are returning to the DPRK. No executions.

Not everything is as it seems because the world doesn't work like Hollywood.

Research and form your own opinions.

As to everyone rebutting this argument by pointing out malnutrition in the area, may i remind you that 1.  The U.S. has its own damn problems with malnutrition due to capitalism and that 2.  The U.S. basically caused the DPRK famine through incredibly strict trade sanctions due to the Korean War that have yet to be lifted despite the literally over 100 propositions for surrender made by the DPRK since the War?

The kind of thing that has been said for centuries but Westerners are too damn dense to get.

The way North Korea treats its homeless and parentless children.

People have been killed for looking at bootleg videos people have been killed for listing to South Korean pop music.
Why do you think people who have taken pictures of the general public have been banned from their country?

Because North Korea doesn't want to let the world know how its treat its majority.

North Korea is not a great country, due to the country's poor farming policy 10 percent of its people died in the 90's. The goverment told them they had to work harder and shifted the blame to the Western-country.

I am sorry but you need to research this.

No it isn't.

Respect doesn't work that way.

I think someone should report you to the FBI for supporting North Korean Totalitarianism.

Seriously?

Is this real life? Or are you just stuck in the 50's?
