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.

Conditions now are better than before over there. It's 2016.

No it isn't relevant because this is a society of 7,000,000,000 people and you're trying too hard to convince a random stranger on the internet.

I agree. I can't believe how a lot of the socialist community automatically denounce the DPRK without consideration. Bourgeois propaganda has its hold even over the most progressive of us. Thank you for taking the time to dispel the propaganda.

Didn't you just say no one cares?

No they don't.

They don't hate the DPRK/North Korea. In fact most people don't even have an opinion on the country.

The DPRK has slaughtered their own civilians and military officials on video with Kim Jung Un present and used then as propaganda against South Korea and other nations like the United States of America. They've test launched atom, hydrogen, and nuclear missiles on their own land and coastlines, and have reported concentration camps for both media, and militants against the regime.

North Korea is nothing more than an abandoned puppet nation of the former USSR.

You're a first world internet armchair college student leftist whose only talent is attending frat boy parties.

I don't know how you can call the DPRK/North Korea an "evil dictatorship" and expect to be taken seriously.
