Do you think his western upbringing is what made him so insane? Unlike his other relatives he was exposed to it as a kid and grew up in Switzerland but he's even more nuts than his dad.

Also he's known to be obsessed with basketball

he's a member of the dictator family of north korea

I'm pretty sure THAT is a larger factor OP

What's amazing is how seamless the transition from his father to him was. He does the exact same things and has the exact same public opinion. But somehow people think he's to blame for NK. He's nothing

Imagine having been friends with him and later on he wants you to join his government. What an opportunity.

sava2500 Avatar

It wasn't smooth, he undertook a massive purge that killed hundreds of top government officials, including his own uncle. That's why even China is pissed off at him because he killed many pro-chinese officials.

Probably is a stressfull job and he felt that there could be a coup if he didnt terrorized the peasants.

Are you honestly eating the "North Korea is crazy don't mess with us propaganda"? It's all a fucking act to keep their own population under control and grift development cash far disproportionate to their population size.

They're even nuttier than usual because China is having enough of their shit. Trump is trying to get China to finally give up supporting them, there's a good chance this will become Trump's defining war.

What's so hard about building a nuke anyways. They have enough centrifuges and uranium to build the most crude nukes. I would probably aim for higher and perfect a nano-bioweapon to wipe out every single country other than Best Korea.

georgedyjr Avatar

It's not just nukes, it's their ballistic missiles. Even if they had nukes they had no real way of hurting the US before, but now they're building one that can hit the west coast. Kim's policy is to use this as leverage to threaten the west to leave him alone, but this is intolerable for the US government.

Doubt it. Nobody took commies seriously in USSR and other commie countries. And there too you can't be just vocal about it. They don't give a fuck about ideology only about something to eat.
And they are exposed to the west they all watch south korean soap operas and many work in China.
Anything serious is sold for Chinese currency.

Totalitarian communism is already western though. If anything the only part that makes North Korea so insane to us is that they adopted the imperial Japanese religious reverence for their emperor.

He's trying to emulate his father and grandfather. Asians still see being fat as a sign of wealth and prestige.

davidsasda Avatar

You can't change NK in a day. It would be total chaos and disaster. At least he tries to make some reforms like allowed private farming so they don't starve anymore and have good harvests. And close eyes on existence of private business. Basically things China was coming through decades ago. So eventially it would be reformed China-way(with NK specifics). But they won't get rid of ideology it's dangerous for ruling class.

n_tassone Avatar

And his father postponed any reforms. He wanted just to die in the country he used to.
But young Kim is young he just has to do something.

grafxiq Avatar

If he wanted reforms, why is he pissing off China? His uncle that he executed was considered a reformist as well who wanted to emulate China's model.

mauriolg Avatar

You believe that's his end goal?
I will grant you that the fate of Qaddafi means no dictator is going to make overtures of detente anytime soon.

intertarik Avatar

They always had weird relationships with China and tried to minimize their influence(while still getting aid and trading).
In the past China had much more influence basically all their generals and elite were ethnic Koreans from China(previously serving in Chinese army or party). And Kims cleansed them over time.
Same with soviet agents or just soviet sympatizers after Stalin's death.

Some things I know for sure from lectures of an ebin Russian man who knows a lot about Gorea.
1) Un has been actively severing ties with China. Goreans actively push Russia and Vietnam as their greatest allies. In reality goreans just trying to be independent.
2) They're gradually allowing micro and small business to exist.
3) Their economy grows 12% per annum on average.
4) Goreans produce a lot of drugs for Asian markets and do not hesitate to use profits in state budget.
5) They're rapidly expanding the practice of renting vast numbers of their workers for jobs in developing countries. Income goes into budget.
6) Gorean gubmint knows that it will inevitably accept capitalism, but it also knows that the transition must be gradual.
7) Worst Goreans DO NOT WANT Goreas to be united again.

And fake dollars. They're the largest world producer of almost-legit fake dollars.

NK's Bureau 21 is one of the largest cybercrime and cyberfraud agencies in the world. They scam and rob billions of dollar each year.

There are a lot of such news. Like according_to_rumors he executed person_name in some horrible_way. Then that person appears in NK news on some event.
But everyone only remembers that. And nobody even reports it was fake.

Pretty sure I read that it was just a high caliber standard infantry machine-gun, not some Flak-88 tier thing the media tries to sell it as. You know, the type of gun you would shoot at a transport helicopter.

How does he even matter lol? He's not even a major factor in best Korea politics and development. He's buffered out of the real world by the military and kgb who """protect""" him. It's Lois xiii tier

guischmitt Avatar

Take any, what, 18 year old was he when he took the crown and give him unlimited power and you'll see a tyrant.
He's acting how kings always used to act, and is a good reminder of why we don't want kings with real power back.

Also, NK has a deliberate strategy of trying to appear insane so as to prevent people fucking with them. It's a kind of jailhouse mad guy strategy. So far it seems to be working, at least so far as ground invasions go.

thinkleft Avatar

More interesting is why countries Saudi Arabia is seen somewhat different from NK.
- medieval executions
- below poor 90%
- mad people in government

Well, he did have his girlfriend executed because he suspected her of disloyalty. That's not exactly sane. It's not like completely insanse, but it's not really sane either.

As I said, he's behaving like Kings always used to act.

liang Avatar


Singer was reported to have been killed by firing squad last year for making a sex tape but has turned up on state TV alive and well

If someone is really executed he would never appear in the their media again. He would be removed from photos and books too in a good old Stalinist manner.

chatyrko Avatar

I had the same thoughts. It can be truth.

mefahad Avatar

No real power, but lots of influence. It's said a whisper from the queen is worth a shout from anyone else, but it's probably much more than that.
Also, it depends on the royal. The Queen has lots of influence, but Charles does not. Charles was recently humiliated when it was revealed he used to be in the habit of writing advice filled letters to various government ministers, and those ministers were in the habit of tossing them in le trash without even reading them.

The street layout is interesting. It reminds me of a four lane highway I saw in Burma. That only had about three cars on it. The rationale was that they were building for the future, in the assumption that more cars would come.

What's gonna be interesting is if people start using quad drones to get about, will all those big old roads become rednundant relics?

I didn't say it was a bad idea. But I think we're coming towards the end of the car era, in the West at least. It won't be long before there are drones powerful and sophisticated enough that you just input on google maps where you want to go, and they fly you to that exact spot.

scottgallant Avatar

And what would power source of such flying car? I see opposite tendency to use smaller engines like 1.0L in Europe instead of 7.0L like in good old times. And electric batteries are still heavy as fuck.

btw they already have much more cars in the capital.

markmushiva Avatar

Not sure if they are really improving or just their pr department started to working

souperphly Avatar

There is huge difference between capital and rest of the country. And huge inequality. They have plenty of businessmen(or corrupt officials) who can spend yearly wage of some worker in a restaurant in a day.
And in provinces close to Chine people work in China seasonally for hard currency. Some factories working for export pay their workers good wages.
It's all complicated.

mbilalsiddique1 Avatar

What kind of seasonal work do Russians do in China? Isn't chinese labour cheaper. I heard lots of Chinese migrants are flooding into Russia for work?

I think his two realistic options were:

Anyway, either arrange a PR stunt at a IWO and use it as an excuse to claim asylum, or do something similar in China.

2. Take up the reins of his father.

In NK too. In 90's only several tens of people leaved it in a year. Now thousands do each year. There is no practically guarded border with China.

yassiryahya Avatar

I noticed the other day that Russia too shares a small border with North Korea. Can you actually go from Russia to North Korea?

Also I remember there was some Vice documentary about North Korean workers working somewhere in the middle of nowhere in Russia, cutting trees for Ikea or something. But I don't know if it's fake news, I don't trust Vice very much.

That's how most of tourist to North Korea get there.

It's not fake news there are North Koran workers cutting trees(AFAIK since commie times so for decades) but they dramatized it a lot and annoyed them as usual. Because of those vice guys those workers could get into trouble and they don't care.

I've read series of blog posts on some forum by some bydlo guy who visited NK as tourist to drink their cheap vodka etc. And fell in love to their guide. He tried to rapedate her but she refused but he kept coming there several times to her and party allowed them to marry. Happy end.
