North Koreans don't have internet. They think their leader is basically a demi-god, and that we are all evil.

They have propagandists who are allowed to do their thing to the outer world on the internet, no doubt under strict supervision. I've seen some strong defenses of the indefensible right here on CD.

Isn't this crazy? When I saw the headline come up in my news feed the other day, I thought it was some sort of satirical post from The Onion or something.

When I clicked on the link- well, my bad for doing so....

Fer cryin out loud, not only is the puffed-up little idiot (Kim) making a jackass out of himself again, he's giving the Rogen film the kind of publicity that you can't even BUY.

ps. The lack of a sense of humor is truly a bad thing.

One of the best ways to reduce the power and influence of tin-horn dictators is to make them the object of scorn and ridicule.

Like this:

I think the effect of American media ridicule in reducing the power and influence of Hitler, though, was negligible. I don't think it had any effect in any places that Hitler had troops stationed.

Bombs and bullets appear to have been much more effective, and in the end, decisive.

Effect was on the home front.

Have you not seen a satellite picture of North Korea at night?

See that dark area between China and South Korea? That's North Korea. A country that controls who has light bulbs can definitely control who has computers, and certainly the connectivity to the outside world.

Oh, notice how well lighted the DMZ is.
