Ahhh, yeah. You need a one-way ticket to Pyongyang. Please do let us know how that works out for you. In the event that you're too chicken to do this yourself, I'm sure some C-Ders would be very happy to do what they can to make it happen. Vaya con dios.

Yep, because the situation with immigration is not as tense as, for instance, in the Europe (Especially countries like France, Britain or Germany).

Anytime that the government has too much power, you will find corruption ... Anyone who truly believes that a pure socialist/communistic country has a government that truly cares about doing the right thing for its citizens ... Well ... I gotta bridge to Hawaii I'd like to sell to ya ....

Anytime corporations have too much power you will find corruption... anyone who truly believes that a pure capitalistic country truly cares about doing the right thing for the people are dreaming. The extreme end of any spectrum is no good for the people.
