The tea girl

“State” at its best.

From a bunch of undercover journalists filming the great successes of socialism in North Korea.

I like the song and the clip at the beginning, because it reminds me of Russia, except Asian communists are like Russians that had their souls sucked out of them. Actually, a bit like Germans. Russians were just a bunch of shlemazels who hated the fact that nobility oppressed the peasants. Asians took Marx and put him on the conveyor belt.

To me the above video represents the complete destruction of what human spirit is. But the thing is: the idea of doing what’s best for the society vs. individuals is that destruction.

The tea girl:

Luckily, playing ping pong is all that she has to do.

One comment on YouTube said:
God I feel like I'm being brainwashed just watching this. What an awful, awful country. I feel sorry for the people.

Now, this is absolutely my favorite episode. I think Barrage is the symbol of governmental involvement in the society.

What are North Korean views on Israel and Jews in general, or do they not have any?

I think N. Korea does not support Israel to say it the least. I suppose they don’t really know much about Jews at all.

Why, are you considering moving there, al pi Alter Rebbe’s shitta what kind of regime a Jew is supposed to live under?

Actually, Kim Jong Ill is probably an even better moshol than Russian tzar, so it may not be a bad idea.

I think all those chassidim that tell stories of chassidim in Russia deploring the destruction of monarchy should put their money where their mouth is.

It would be cool to visit, but there are two issues:

A. Kosher.
B. Toilet paper.
