This video doesnt explain a major part of how NK makes money. I am watching a doc now on how they ship workers abroad make them work for other companies and take all their salary... they generate millions.. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmqV2vIXpUY

I came in here guessing they organ harvest their population for selling on the black market. I haven't watched the video yet. I'll post my response to the video in a reply to this comment.

So they were doing fine, even making China jealous then fucked it all up by instituting capitalism so a few could gain immense power at the cost of the many? Sounds about right smh Edit: obviously authoritarian "communism" aka "dictatorship" has its own set of problems but if they expanded on the actual socialism parts and not the hierarchies they'd probably be doing a lot better

@ansn 945 In case you are serious please go check a dictionary and the history behind the word you just used :P Most people who have issues with communism also have the same issues with fascism. Both create tyrannical authoritarian regimes. https://www.thedailybeast.com/communism-and-fascism-the-reason-they-are-so-similar?ref=scroll

We don't like north Koreans and japan. Because they killed south Koreans and Japan killed so many people. So we don't trust you. We don't want you to rule because we think you need subsidies not power because we think you are violent. We don't understand your way of life because it's more a way of pain and death.

Very little here about how NK actually does make money, only a bare minimum about how some individuals earn a living, which is quite different to 'making money'.

I don't consider North Korea a country. They are a bunch of pirates living off blackmail money and being a leech feeding off China and acting as a Chinese puppet. In comparison South Korea has done very well. North is drooling at South Korea's prosperity but it doesn't want to work hard or it doesn't have intelligence to be par with South. All these missiles and nuclear technology know how is supplied by China. North Korea and China are playing this game very well.

Shows imagery from a Swiss landscape at 10:55. Stating it would depict the "spraling fields of North Korea with barley any electricity". The footage was recorded on the S-15 train between the Stations Steinmaur and Schöfflisdorf-Oberweningen showing the northern side of a hill called Lägern.

Which is quite funny, since the film "The Interview" also uses a Swiss train scene (depicting a Swiss ICN Train) claiming it would be North Korea

North Korea was the 2nd richest country in Asia from the end of WW2 to the late 1980s. They had free universal health care, free education for all, free uniforms, free textbooks and free social programs including free housing for its citizens which the USA never had and will never have. Their standard of living at the time was ahead of modern day China.This is mainly because they had great investment and cheap oil from the Soviet Union. When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. The USA took this chance to sanction North Korea by banning import of all basic essential resources and oil into the country directly crippling their industrialized economy and leading to the starvation of millions of innocent North Korean civilians overnight. North Korea still survived and became almost completely self sufficient despite the impossible and inhumane conditions the Americans left them. So please LEARN YOU HISTORY before you start spreading hate and talking shit to a country you know nothing about you stupid ignorant arrogant idiots!

I can't help wondering whether this video is part of NK propaganda. The information and figures are very specific, but somehow are not corroborated by other sources.

To me it still seems like it works way better than capitalism. Tall buildings are present in EU as well, but only rich people are there. So the system is BASICALLY the same. Poor stay poor. And only a bunch get rich and live rich lives. Society is just bad
