democratic people s republic of korea

It’s just another side of Seoul now. We are filling every road now.

Police are coming with water cannons.

We will burn the night away. 

The Republic of Korea shall be a democratic republic.

The sovereignty of the Republic of Korea shall reside in the people, and all state authority shall emanate from the people.

It’s absurd that we have to fight the government to do what the first article of Constitution says, but yeah.

“Nazis are socialists! It says right in the name ‘National Socialist’!”

Okay, and North Korea’s official name is the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and it is none of those things besides being in Korea.

The Republicans say they’re for liberty but have done more than another party in US history to strip civil liberties.

The Democrats claim to be for democracy and the voice of the people, but use anti-democratic internal party systems and support anti-democratic legislation.

Mussolini started National Socialism because, “socialism is the enemy of the nation”.

Hell, in the US socialism is short hand for government control when most socialist ideology is anti-statist and anti-authoritarian in nature.

Political terms can be manipulated so much that they basically represent the exact opposite of their meaning.

Why I am against Communism

Communism is a good concept, but it is horribly executed. Stalin, Mao, Castro, Che,  Pol Pot Kim Il-Sung, Kim Jong Il, and Kim Jong Un. have caused nothing but suffering to their people. 


Just look at the examples of why it doesn’t work
Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
People’s Republic of China
Democratic People’s Republic of Korea
Republic of Cuba
Lao People’s Democratic Republic
Socialist Republic of Vietnam
German Democratic Republic
Polish People’s Republic
Hell, nearly the entire Cuban population of Florida were CELEBRATING Castro’s death  and speaking of Cuba, I find it really fucking disgusting how people, especially our generation romanticizes Che Guevara. He was a racist, banned music, burned books, was sexist and killed gay people out of “principle” yet he is considered a symbol of freedom and justice

The Poor and the middle class suffer, and are brutalized, while the party members thrive in communism. 

You have NO FREEDOM AND OWN NOTHING. You are watched constantly. Everything belongs to the government. Farms are forced collectivism, they don’t belong to the farms they are taken for the party. If you go against the will of the party you are either killed by the secret police or shipped off to a Gulag. Karl Marx lived off his family and never worked a day in his life. He forced his wife and kids to live in poverty and filth and 4 of his children died. Workers of the world unite is a GOOD thing, but this man was never a worker.
I don’t understand why anyone would want this,  communism and capitalism is just two hands of the same body. 

February 16, 1942: Birthday of Comrade Kim Jong Il, leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, commander of the Korean People’s Army and general-secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea.

The ‘human rights’ advertised by the imperialists are privileges of the rich, privileges to do anything on the strength of money. The imperialists do not recognize the right of unemployed people to work, or the right of orphans or people without support to eat and survive, for instance, as human rights. As they do not grant working people elementary rights to existence and as they pursue anti-popular policies and policies of racial and national discrimination and colonialism, the imperialists have no right to speak about human rights. The imperialists are the most heinous enemy of human rights.”

- Kim Jong Il, Socialism is a Science (1994)

Apple, Samsung and Sony Linked to Child Labor, Amnesty International Reports

A new report claims that major tech companies are failing to perform the basic checks required to ensure that mining operations do not take advantage of child labor.

The report focuses on cobalt mining in the Democratic Republic of Congo - which produces 50% of the world’s supply of the mineral used in li-on battery production. 

Based on interviews with 87 people, the report shows that cobalt is mined by children as young as seven in the country, before it is sold on to large mineral firms such Congo Dongfang Mining, Zhejiang Huayou Cobalt Ltd and Huayou Cobalt.

Those companies process the ore before selling it on to companies in China and South Korea where it’s used to make batteries. Amnesty International claims that manufacturers including Apple, Sony and Samsung use parts which contain this cobalt.

The report claims that as many as 40,000 children work in the cobalt mines of the DRC. Some of the children interviewed for the report say that they work up to 12 hours a day for $1. 

They work above ground, washing and carrying heavy loads of rocks. Amnesty International claims they often face physical abuse and exposure to dangerous gas and dust.

Mark Dummett, Amnesty International’s business and human rights researcher said:

“Millions of people enjoy the benefits of new technologies but rarely ask how they are made. It is high time the big brands took some responsibility for the mining of the raw materials that make their lucrative products.” 

Companies whose global profits total $125 billion cannot credibly claim that they are unable to check where key minerals in their productions come from.”

A soldier of the Korean People’s Army is not only a soldier, but also a worker or a peasant.

The soldiers of the Korean People’s Army are seen at construction sites, where they are raising buildings, or out in the fields, where they are harvesting crops.

Every soldier of the Korean People’s Army have taken the duty of the soldier as they are the most patriotic of workers and peasants of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and they want to stand at the front line against the US imperialists.
