The North Koreans are masters of brainwashing and propaganda.
They've convinced an entire country that they're living in paradise and it would be wrong to seriously question any part of it
Here's the scary thing...
The CIA modeled a lot of its own brainwashing, propaganda and torture methods after what it learned from the Koreans in the 1950s. In fact, they were shocked that the Koreans were more effective than their other heroes of "persuasion" the Nazis.
I can't help but hear a description of the US when I hear general statements made about North Korea.
"They've done it to a whole country."
"It's unbelievable what this family and the military have done to this country."
