Oh I forgot to mention that it has no oil.
Have they dropped the Korean War and the 35,000 American GIs that lost their lives there from current textbooks?

Hey vlad how are they classless? Again, out of my element here, but it would appear to me that there are two distinct classes in North Korea.

How is that even possible? A stateless/classless society cannot be a dictatorship.

I don't know what you guys are talking about. Kim Jong Il is peerlessly patriot.

I'm so disappointed that this isn't an actual message board we could spam. I wanted to be Shaun Vox.

But there are two distinct classes in North Korea? The government and the people? correct me if I'm wrong...

No, you're right. We're confusing each other here. NK is not communist. Hence why I've said what I've said.

The point he's trying to make is that a lot of people who don't really understand foreign policy look at all "bad" governments as dictatorships, communists, and socialists, as if those words all mean the same thing. They're all just words with such connotations of fear in the US that people don't even understand them. People will call North Korea socialist or communist, when it has never been either of those things. It's a dictatorship.

North Korea is not communist in the classical textbook term because yes, the government has all the power and so it's not classless. But it is a centrally planned economy and there is almost no private enterprise, which obviously makes it communist economically. Politically, it's a dictatorship. And so that's why I used the term "communist dictatorship".

If I was granted one wish in this world I would wish that people from the US would have a better understanding of the word 'socialism.'
