Tell me that's not fucking terrifying.

I mean, they've gone off the deep end. They ran out of money to build this hotel, so it was topped out, but the exterior wasn't finished, so it was just ugly concrete.
The government was so embarrassed by it, they denied its existence for almost 20 years...
Fuck...
Sitting right there, big and ugly.
They only acknowledged its existence a few years ago when construction resumed...

I mean, North Korea is fucking insane.
Look at this thing from their official website:
The DPRK practically guarantees the people genuine political freedom and rights according to the fundamental requirement of the Juche idea for enhancing man's independence and creativity in every way.
In the DPRK the rights and duties of citizens are based on the collectivist principle, "One for all and all for one." The Socialist Constitution of the DPRK specifies that the state effectively guarantees all the conditions for the democratic rights and liberties as well as the material and cultural well-being of the citizens.
All the citizens who have reached 17 years of age have the right to elect and to be elected, irrespective of sex, race, occupation, length of residence, property status, education, party affiliation, political views and religion. They also have freedom of speech, the press, assembly, demonstration and association, freedom of religious beliefs and they are entitled to submit complaints and petitions.
The workers, peasants and other working people, as masters of power, participate in state administration and freely engage in socio-political activities in political parties and public organizations.
The working people have the right to work and rest, the right to education and free medical care and freedom of scientific, literary and artistic pursuits. Women are accorded equal social status and rights with men. The state affords special privilege to mothers and children. Marriage and the family are protected by the state.
The working people are guaranteed inviolability of the person and the home and privacy of correspondence. The rights and freedom of citizens steadily increase with the consolidation and development of the socialist system.

They just have to justify injustice with absolute insanity...
Damn.

Weirdass.

Oh my science... They have, on their website, you can officially join the North Korean Worker's Party anywhere in the world...
"Regardless of politics", they say.
Fuck.

I mean, I consider myself a socialist, and I'd be thrilled to join, if they weren't insane...

Weird.

Anyway, night guys.

i wonder if north korea is actualey a perfect society, in every aspect, and the goverments of the whole world are tricking us becuase everyone would be pissed that their governments aren't that great. tho that does seem a little far fetched, eh?

"A loving man and woman in a committed relationship can marry. Dogs, no matter what their relationship, are not allowed to marry. How should society treat gays and lesbians in committed relationships? As dogs or as humans?"
