    Default Hitler number 2

    Tanks and trucks loaded with katyusha rocket launchers and grenades rolled past. They were dwarfed by the series of missiles that paraded by, each larger than the last and emblazoned with: "Defeat the U.S. military. U.S. soldiers are the Korean People's Army's enemy."

    "If the U.S. imperialists and their followers infringe on our sovereignty and dignity even slightly, we will blow up the stronghold of their aggression with a merciless and righteous retaliatory strike by mobilizing all physical means, including self-defensive nuclear deterrent force, and achieve the historic task of unification," Ri Yong Ho, chief of the General Staff of the North Korean army, said at the event.

    Thousands of troops from every branch of North Korea's 1.2-million-strong military, as well as from naval officers' academies and military nursing schools, goose-stepped around the plaza decorated with banners and flags to the accompaniment of a military brass band and ordinary citizens waving plastic bouquets./:




    Activists sent some 20,000 leaflets packed with $1 bills and CDs carrying an anti-Kim Jong Un rap songs floating across the border into North Korea in hopes of reaching ordinary North Koreans, according to Park Sang-hak, a defector who now lives in Seoul.


    Mindless beleif and blindly following:

    "He's very young and powerful and strong," he said, asking that his name not be used. "He's very intellectual, and his knowledge is profound and deep, I've heard. The future of our country will be brighter."


    There were reports that children were singing odes to "the Young Commander" and that his January birthday had been made a national holiday like those of his father and grandfather.

    "Kim Jong Il! Protect him to the death!" ''Kim Jong Il, let's unite to support him!" they chanted as the 68-year-old leader walked the length of the platform, appearing to limp slightly and gripping onto the banister.

    I wish North Korea was more open about the inner workings of their culture. What little escapes to the outside world has left me completely fascinated.

    Ceausescu was praised, glorified and treated like a God until the last minutes when the furious crowd of paupers who were supposed to applaud him nearly tore him apart. He was condemned and executed in less than a week.
    Just saying.

    Cults of personality are not uncommon in totalitarian government, be they communist, fascist, theocratic or anything else. North Korea's is interesting because of the odd myths surrounding Kim Jong Il (some believe he has magical powers, like controlling the weather, and Hitler and Stalin probably never went quite that far), but other than the totalitarian and personality cult connection, and I guess opposition to many Democratic nations, I don't see the connection with Hitler.

    I thought that comparing random figures to Hitler became old 50 years ago, though in this case it’s at a totalitarian leader who’s being brought into comparison. Kim Jong-Un seems to be much more sympathetic to the Korean people than his father but his naivety and lack of experience would make him very easy to manipulate. I can easily see him becoming a puppet ruler for the military state.
    Surgeons replace one of your neurons with a microchip that duplicates its input-output functions. You feel and behave exactly as before. Then they replace a second one, and a third one, and so on, until more and more of your brain becomes silicon. Since each microchip does exactly what the neuron did, your behavior and memory never change. Do you even notice the difference? Does it feel like dying? Is some other conscious entity moving in with you?

    It should've, but for whatever reason Baby Boomers just seem to love doing it. The irony being that they weren't even the generation that fought Hitler.

    If the issue was over cult of personality, why not reference to Stalin, who actually is highly revered within North Korea? In anycase, militarily speaking North Korea is quite literally a shithole. They have trouble as it is feeding their own troops. Not exactly the Whermacht if you ask me.

    Stalin, unlike Kim (who fosters his personality cult) combated his personality cult. Perhaps the OP knows of this usually overlooked fact.

    Also if North Korea was militarily speaking a "shithole" I don't get why the south or some other imperialist power hasn't stepped in and fucked them over yet.
