  1. Whoever moderate comments on this site must be in some way related to a North Korean elite…

  2. So basically “I will shit myself but I won’t give up”kind of political strategy…perfect !

  3. A frightening prospect, that a human being can rule with such authority, brutality and forcefulness, and with very little or no compassion for his fellow country man. Stalin was another.

  4. Everyone this documentary team spoke to is probably now dead or in a gulag

  5. Korean Thatcher!

    • That’s the stupidest most ignorant comment I’ve seen in a long time! I’ve never liked Thatcher but to say that she in any way shape or form can be compared to Kim Il Sung or Kim Jung Il is just horrible! You ought to be ashamed of yourself!.

  6. Link not working but you can find it here:

  7. Hello there, just became alert to your weblog thru Google, and located that it is really informative. I’m gonna watch out for brussels. I will be grateful in the event you continue this in future. A lot of other people will be benefited out of your writing. Cheers!

  8. Indoctrination takes many forms.  This is extreme-certainly!. 
     
    The ‘West’ has it’s PR /Advertising/Media -and it’s partners in more overt power,ie Government. 
     
    So-the former are bedazzled by ‘Kim’; while the latter population generally seem bedazzled by ‘shopping’ and ‘celebrity’.

  10. goes to show how brainwashing works very well

  11. If he was such a GREAT LEADER he wouldnt of let the country get so run down he threw out all the help he got rid of the missionarys

  12. This girl is such an idiot. “well nuclear weapons would help”, What a thick!!! She seriously just set out to make America seem like a better place to live. She has no idea by the sounds of it.

  16. Creepy brainwashed country.

  17. Just traveled to Korea this summer and visited the DMZ..amazing! Having looked over at the North Korean town of Kijong was stunning and brought a chill to my spine. This documentary documentary did a great job of demonstrating the life of a North Koreans and their unfortunate fate.

  18. There nuclear weapons are very poor, the first test explosion was so small it was thought to be a dude and the second one was better but no by much.

  20. Its the only place mastercard is not accepted.

  21. man there’s some really excellent points being brought up in these comments….

  22. why the us don`t go there for the freedom of the Korean people? because they do not have oil

    •  riiight… also the fact that they have the 4th largest army in the world and are Nuclear capable doesnt have anything to do with it. not to mention the fact they share a border with china, and, just like the first Korean war, an act of aggression against North Korea could easily be seen as an act of aggression against China?  but no… your right, it must be all about oil…

      • too bad the united states spends 46 percent of the Worlds military budget. the next leading nation is china with 6 percent. if we wanted to we could invade. i agree with AHMED. there is nothing of value in north korea, so we stay out.

  23. i grew up in ussr and i miss my happy soviet childhood like you wouldn’t believe
    i live in canada and when i compare our foremer soviet mentality to the capitalist western one i have tears in my eyes and i wanna turn back the time

    • Igor = troll

    • I’ve never lived in the USSR, but there’s a lot wrong with the U.S. today. I’ve been sick and in agonizing pain for well over a year. There is nothing I can do about it. I can’t go to school, can’t work, can’t afford the hospital (I was turned away because I owed $250, which is now $2,700) or a specialist. I don’t even know what’s wrong because I don’t have money for proper diagnostics. I don’t have a car, so I can’t go anywhere, and I was just recently turned down for disability, just when I thought this nightmare was almost over. If I ever get my health back, I’m going to get the hell out of this country. You get sick over here, you better have some cash stashed away, or you better be a little kid.

    • I especially miss the gulags, secret police, waiting lines for scarce goods, and secret stores for privileged party officials
