North Koreans Mourn Death of Kim Il-Sung - YouTube
He was a crul brutal dictator that starved millions of his people and they are crying for him?

I would be happy because maybe now they can have a future I don't Really get their reaction to his death..I see it as a positive thing but then again the messed up propoganda must of had some effect after 30 years on them.

It is bizarre, but you must realize that not mourning his death publicly will bring them the threat of further starvation and abuse via the military or other powers that be.

I feel for them. They are taught at such a young age to just worship that monster or face beatings and death. We have watched this circus for so long we are numb to it. I read a while back that the people eat grass and bugs just to stay alive. I hope they want real change and make a move for it, but then China will be there in a flash to stop any attempt. Let us pray we don't get into a war with them and that fat little boy leader keeps his missiles in his panties.

They are so poor that the only way they could adequately supply the masses with a State sponsored dinner was Tear Drop Soup...cry comrades cry.

They are suffering from living under the cult of personality. They are only permitted to mourn in a way that is expected of them and they all will mourn in the same dramatic manner.

I'm not sure that they are capable of having any independent or individual thought.

It's sad.

man I this make me apprecite the Freedom we have here even more after watching that because it shows what Brutal Dictator, strict military rule, decades of brianwashing by Propaganda, Not allowed to have freedom of speechh or express your ideas or views and total isolation from the rest of the world can do and it is pretty Horrible.

I guess to be honest Some times we (I) for get how good we really have it and why Freedom is such an important thing and it really is worth fighting for and it is what makes living here so great.

It is a dictatorship. Can you imagine what would happen to those who didn't mourn the evil dwarf?
