    What? Did another million people die and children get eaten? Seems like 'the usual' to me...

    Invincible North Korea

    Propaganda from the KAMPFBUND DEUTSCHER SOZIALISTEN (Fighting Organisation of German Socialists) - a German Nazi organisation:

    "invincible North Korea
    Solidarity with the people of North Korea in the fight for freedom and self-
    determination!"

    North Korea - A Communist Nation?

    With comments like these, surely Lenin must be turning in his grave:

    The North’s delegation leader Maj. Gen. Kim Yong-chul started off an unfortunate thread by quipping, “Since the climate in the South is warmer, the farmers must be hard at work.” His South Korean counterpart Maj. Gen. Han Min-gu of the South replied, “The population of the farming communities is actually falling, and many bachelors from such areas marry women from Mongolia, Vietnam and the Philippines.”

    Kim reportedly grimaced and snapped, “Our nation has always considered its pure lineage to be of great importance — I am concerned that our singularity will disappear.” Instead of contradicting him, the South Korean delegation said such dilution of the bloodline was “but a drop of ink in the Han River,” adding this would cause no problems “if we all live together.” But this failed to mollify the North Korean. “Since time immemorial, our nation has been a land of abundant beauty. Not even one drop of ink must be allowed to fall into the Han River,” Kim thundered.

    Also, interesting article on education in North Korea. Despite the great poverty in that country, the literacy rate, education level, and percentage of people holding college degrees is one of the highest in the world.

    Communist nation is already an oxymoron but even if we see Stalinism as the model North Korea does not quite fit in because of its big xenophobic (in this case, the word can be taken literally) and nationalist tendencies.

    You are wrong with your last paragraph,too. The education was good as in any other country of the socialist East but all these information are from the Kim Il-Sung era when North Korea was still an ordinary stalinist country. The famine and religion and sick cult of personality increased vastly after his death and the inthronation of his son and the education rate dropped aswell because most and more people are forced to create necessary goods for survival. Eventually, there is no need for college degrees in North Korea right now because there's not even enough food. The country with the most PhDs per 1000 citizens is its southern counterpart by the way.

    The official ideology of North Korea is Juche; it's a sort of nationalist socialism, quite distinct from orthodox Marxism. I wouldn't describe North Korea as Stalinist, as Stalin was far more in line with Marxism-Leninism than Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-il. The western media just describe the nation as Stalinist to smear it and provide their audience with a simplified image of politics, just like when they brand folkish movements as nazi.

    You are right that it wasn't Stalinist anymore in the late Il-Sung period already but that was just part of the developement. In the beginning it was really just another sattelite state but it became quite prosoperous (yes, ironical if you see its current situation) and switched sides after some issues with Russia. Until the 80s it then followed the Chinese model but eventually developed its own one after the economic changes in China.

    North Korea didn't really 'become' wealthy under the current regime, it started out as the wealthy/industrial part of Korea and has coasted along as best they could, and since then the formerly poor South has surpassed them.

    A lot of the way North Korea is governed is similar to Stalin's style, but overall I'd say the country most resembles a feudal monarchy. There is a large class of impoverished peasants with barely enough to eat, working to supply a ruling family which lives in opulence, and a military class that gets the 'best of the rest' and is used to keep the peasantry in line.

    It's definitely not Communist, or Socialist as they describe themselves. To me it seems they want to build an elite North Korean (the ones who live in the big cities) and kill of the rest.
