The DPRK practically guarantees the people genuine political freedom and rights according to the fundamental requirement of the Juche idea for enhancing man's independence and creativity in every way.
In the DPRK the rights and duties of citizens are based on the collectivist principle, "One for all and all for one." The Socialist Constitution of the DPRK specifies that the state effectively guarantees all the conditions for the democratic rights and liberties as well as the material and cultural well-being of the citizens.
All the citizens who have reached 17 years of age have the right to elect and to be elected, irrespective of sex, race, occupation, length of residence, property status, education, party affiliation, political views and religion. They also have freedom of speech, the press, assembly, demonstration and association, freedom of religious beliefs and they are entitled to submit complaints and petitions.
The workers, peasants and other working people, as masters of power, participate in state administration and freely engage in socio-political activities in political parties and public organizations.
The working people have the right to work and rest, the right to education and free medical care and freedom of scientific, literary and artistic pursuits. Women are accorded equal social status and rights with men. The state affords special privilege to mothers and children. Marriage and the family are protected by the state.
The working people are guaranteed inviolability of the person and the home and privacy of correspondence. The rights and freedom of citizens steadily increase with the consolidation and development of the socialist system.

There are many people who support the North Korean government and its people, just wait and read...Maybe this thread will instigate people to have respect for North Korea and stop trying to push it behind. It will not happen, and some of us will stand in the way...

This is very different from what we here in the US have heard about the DPRK. In fact, it is nearly the exact opposite of what we have heard here. May I ask how you have come to this information, since the DPRK is generally pretty closed. I would LOVE to visit the DPRK and see for myself what it is like, just like I did with China and I learned that much of what I was taught about the PRC was wrong, too.
