    Ahh the Western propaganda. They also say that keeping two cars in one family is not a bad thing, ludicrous. :shocked:

    Thank god your country did not buy into that crap those Commies sold... Your country is responsible for the western europe and later the eastern europe did not fall into the Commies and i dont know if they appreciate or not but i appreciate it all too well....:thumb:

    Fortunately, we seem to have escaped it too.... For that i thank the Gods....:thumb:

    Western propaganda is giving something an inaccurate label to deliberately skew opinions.

    This is not Western propaganda. This is the unfortunate truth of that scum regime in North Korea.

    Going into North Korea is like stepping back into the 1950s Stalinist USSR or 1960s Maoist China. They even run "Gulags" (slave labour camps) to this day!

    Do you believe that North Korea is a democracy?

    It says so in the country's official name :p

    I am saying that it is Western propaganda to label North Korea as communist. Everyone knows about the reality of life in North Korea, I am not disputing it.

    I don't think China has any government slave camps in today's era... at least I haven't heard of any. The occasional incidents of slave workers that we hear about, are by some private goon.

    Interesting... Some one was saying that they have slave labour the reason they have such low production costs there...

    North Korea is democratic by name, communist by fame, dictatorship by practice.

    China is communist by name, capitalistic by practice.

    World has become so complicated!!

    There isn't any gulag in Russia. In fact, they ceased to exist in the USSR after Gorbachev came to power. The Chinese companies employing people at low wages for US companies (think Apple) can be compared to gulags. Not sure about North Korea. No reliable news comes out of that country anyway.

    Information coming out of North Korea is so scarce that it is very difficult to form an accurate understanding of that country. Of course, it could be argued that such a closed society is itself indicative of an oppressive state.

    There never has been a "real communist" country, so world was complicated from 1910s on.
