    Those people in the "happiest country behind China" photo look completely terrified.

    #1: If you get a chance I suggest watching "Camp 14: Total Control Zone" which is the documentary about the only N Korean born in a prison camp that has ever escaped. The full documentary is about 1hr 40mins but there`s an abridged version here on youtube. (I haven`t watched the abridged version so I`m not sure what`s been cut out)

    #2: A six day work week, and another day of enforced "volunteer" work...

    Reminds me of this post about the proposed 7 day work week in WI.

    #18: Voting is also MANDATORY, if an eligible voter does not vote there`s a chance they can be thrown in prison for it.

    I wish the next time Dennis Rodman goes there, they`d throw him in a gulag and beat him three times day for a year while he slowly starves to death.

    I have great love for the people of Korea on both sides of the divide. I both yearn for, and fear reunification.

    A very revealing documentary called Camp 14: Total Control Zone shows what life is like for people in the gulags from the point of view of a guy who was born in one.

    Wow. We tend to mock North Korea (or at least it`s leadership) but it`s not actually funny.
