Then almost half of there country has those concentration camps. Because they say anything that sounds somewhat bad about there leader. That person and there whole family will get killed or sent to the camps. It's pretty crazy. There was a bench at a parked they walked through that was glassed around because he sat on that bench so no one else can use it now. Everyone's health is shit, they can't get medical attention unless Kim Jong him self gives that okay for which is impossible
That's not quite true...
Like any bad political system, if you're mates with the leader then you're fine... not everyone is brainwashed.
the documentary maker that made the film that you watched presented one side of the story. it's the popular story that appeals to us westerners as it get us all to either laugh and say "how stupid", or cry and say "how sad"...
the fact is that not everyone there loved the supreme leader, and they (despite harsh media controls) do know that there is a better world outside.
most of the supreme leader worship happens in the capital city. everyone else in the country doesn't worship him, because they are poor and destitute and they see it as his fault.
oddly enough those in the capital city have the best welfare/sanitation/facilities etc... they are living the dream, and believing the dream, because for them that dream is working.
you could be the most anti establishment guy there is, but if the establishment signed out your city, and decided all the produce of the country should be lavished on you and your city. you'd start singing from that same hymn sheet pretty soon, (especially if you didn't even know that's not how everyone lives.)
