Would you be happy if you had to look at Kimmy's ugly mug?

Ms Kim seems to be a particularly stubborn indoctrinated case; I wish she may one day broaden her na ...

And that goes double for all the westerners who worship their capitalist masters.
Although I don't hold out much hope for you.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

i think the comments about this series of pictures reveal more about the indoctrined mind of those writing them than anything about North Korea. It however does reveal how they hold their leaders in high esteem because they actually do something useful and for the people. The photographer surely did not know that his translater was being 'rewarded' for 'good behaviour'! Hilarious!
Even the comment about the soldier - as a 'servant' of the people is typical of the long standing ancient culture! I can relate to it. It is a positive statement that has been typically twisted by translation into a negative here - classic western propaganda. Even the king of olden times called himself the 'servant' of the people - those he was there to serve, playing a role as a leader and having real responsibilities! Look at the buffoons elected as 'leaders' currently around the world, who lord it over their and other peoples more so than many kings of old yore!

All you hear from the forum members making the derogatory remarks, the same ones who
constantly complain about immoral sexual displays in public, decadent consumerism, people acting
selfishly, butting in lines, disorderly crowds, dangerous and disrespectful drivers, clogged city streets...
on and on. You know the ones.
Yet when a model society is shown full of order and cooperation they lambast that for no other
reason that it is communist.
Who are the indoctrinated ones?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
