North Korea changes political system, is now a ... monarchy?

Post by *THE Ben Reilly* on Tue Aug 13, 2013 6:04 pm

North Korea has revised the 10 fundamental principles of the ruling Workers’ Party to legitimise the hereditary succession of current leader Kim Jong-un and his family, reported South Korean daily Chosun Ilbo on Monday.

Pyongyang reportedly revised the principles in June – the first time since April 1974 when the late Kim Jong-il became North Korea’s leader.

The revised rules stipulate that North Korea and the Workers’ Party will be “kept alive forever by the Baekdu bloodline”. Baekdu Mountain is the highest on the Korean Peninsula and the ‘Baekdu bloodline’ refers to the Kim family.

The country’s founder Kim Il-sung, called the Eternal President, died in 1994 and leadership passed to his son Kim Jong-il, the Eternal General Secretary of the Party.

Current leader Kim Jong-un took power when his father died in late 2011.

In addition to cementing the rule of the Kim family in the 10 principles, Pyongyang also added a warning against the bourgeoisie, most likely in response to increasing foreign influences from South Korea and China, noted experts.

References to socialism and communism were also removed from the revised principles and replaced with “juche revolution”, a belief that is the essence of North Korean politics which declares the North Korean people as the masters of the country’s fate.

More like a prison camp operated by a dictatorial, totalitarian dynasty.

Ooh, I saw this a while back and was hoping it was available for free on YouTube, and it is. If you haven't seen it and are interested in North Korea, this gives some excellent insight:

Tourist videos are abound on YouTube as well, and some of them are quite good. I especially enjoyed this one, although it looks like they went back and improved it a bit.

I've always liked watching Nick's tours, he's been at it a long time and has probably earned the trust of some of the officials there, and is allowed to come into a bit more contact with the locals more than any other tour guide I've seen.

Here's an episode of an HBO show, looks to be from 2008. I've never seen it because I refuse to pay over $100 per month for 200 channels that appear to spend their time looking for the next "Cupcake Wars"-style hit:

I sure hope this doesn't hurt his friendship with Dennis Rodman. It was Dennis Rodman, right? Or was it Tracy Morgan? I dunno. Whatever.
