The North Korean Regime killed of the children of elite leaders who where supposed to learn how to be more tech savvy albeit with the help of computers that didn’t even work 😤🙄👩🏼💻 PS the teacher who was teaching them was asked by the Regime to participate in a foreign teacher program
Like you said Simon, not enjoyable but informative. North Korea is a perfect example of both the failure of communism and democracy, those that have get more, and those that have not got get even less. I don’t think we will ever come up with a system that works for everyone, not unless as humans we can learn that material possessions and/or money are really irrelevant and that everyone is equal, sound familiar, yeah communism by any other name, so I go back to my original point, we will never find a system that works for everyone. Even the United Federation of Planets has a hierarchical system even though they don’t get paid and just replicate anything they want, hmmmm, sound familiar, yup communism, everyone gets the same as everyone else, but some get more than others because they are in charge, like a bigger cabin or better holodeck privileges. Ok rant over, I have stated my opinion, just going to wait for the front door to be kicked in and get arrested for criticising the hierarchy, because big brother is watching, think I will put my tinfoil hat on now.
Sorry for the sarcasm, but The topic just lends itself to my sense of humour. Thanks for the lists Simon and team, always a pleasure, never a choir to watch your uploads. But you still need to do a biographic on Douglas Bader, I must have suggested him at least a million times, ok so I egg sagger ate, only ten times, but unless you do what I want, it’s of to the labour camps for you and the crew, ( but I am nice so I won’t hold it against three generations of your families) never to grace the annals of YouTube ever again, I hope that this works, it’s the best I can do pretending to be nasty.
With the state of how most western media like The Guardian and 60 Minutes being made up with mostly fake news, this video should be taken at face value. Especially if this Simon guy sits there talking about the supposed horrors of North Korea whilst he intentionally leans his body so the viewer can see the human skull on the shelf in the background. This video is just more fake news and anti Korean propaganda.
I always watch this channel with headphones and I gotta say the level you put the music under everything is just full on eerie, and multiple times I find myself pausing the video just to see if it goes away, to make sure it's not some other noise from somewhere in my house.
It really does nothing for me personally but be annoying.
I want to tell the world about this. South korea president moon jae in is suspicious people. He belongs to minju party.(democratic party, actually satanic party) He is subverting democracy, freedom, south korea. He is leftist communist Chinese friendly politician who does not want to cooperate with America. At first he prosecuted former president park - gun -hye with false evidence. His cabinet(Secret of statement Lim jong seok, moon jeong in and so on) are extremely anti-USA politician. He is extreme leftist and anti - usa politician. He is spokesman of Kim jung eun. He is too close to North Korea and its leader. He is like micro xi jing ping Chinese leader. The famous pro-democrat politician wants to stop and shut down THAAD(America's missile defence system) completely. They love North Korea, They want to support North Korea evil regime despite the starving and inhumane treatment of ordinary North Korean citizens. They do not like the rich and want to destroy the Chaebol(Super rich person) or anything that resembles. but most korean are very naive. He is top spokesman of Kim jung eun.
Do I ever hate these countries who abuse their women, like Sharia law and many others, I wish I could do somethings to help these ladies, maybe just these words from a Canadian guy could be a bit of help..
+Zach C you can be locked up in Britain for denying the Holocaust happen I'm not saying that it didn't I wholeheartedly believe it did what if someone believes that they should have every goddamn right to say it. And it's going much further than that. That's not true freedom speech let's be honest oh, yeah they're not locking entire Generations up they certainly aren't free to speak as they want.
We need to continue exposing the people of North Korea to outside information. That way, either they become educated enough that the government is forced to change, for better or worse, or the population drops so drastically that the government changes anyway.
I'm very disappointed in the delusional N. Korean apologists for not showing up and doing what they do in the comments here 😂 Maybe they're learning. Gotta be mad gullible to say the kinda bs they spew.
I'm not much of a proponent of getting involved in other cultures, but this one is seriously effed up. To condemn individuals before they were even born is so wrong. That regime should be iradecated, plain and simple.
He's trying to negotiate with a brutal dictator with a nuclear weapons program. Who's threatened to use them against South Korea and other allies ... Kim's also supported by dictator lead communist China. HOW do YOU think he should proceed with Kim Jung un??
No wonder Trump loves Kim....he starves his people, murders members of the media, and has huge demonstrations of loyalty and glorification....plus, women are treated like absolute garbage! That's how he rolls.
Only problem; Trump wants to hump his daughter; that might be a problem, in N Korea...wait, no...he can have her put into a labor camp after he rapes her! Then she can be hung and stoned, like his other mistresses
I have been to the DPRK...While it is no heaven on Earth, it's still better than many other Third World countries I have been to, such as ones in Central & South America.
Most of what you hear about the DPRK is outright fabrication, because South Koreans, Westerners and some Chinese people have discovered a long time ago that people will believe any ludicrous story so long as you say it happened in North Korea.
+Covena White Did you see that in your crystal ball? I have never been to Pyongyang, for your information. Only rural regions and two towns in the northern parts.
The black market is a common phenomenon that even North Korean officials freely admit the existence of. One even asked if I visited the local black market for the local sea food. It's not as dark and mysterious as you may think.
You have not been to the rich cities and not the impoverished country side . Pyongyang and the Tourist areas like the towns of Kim Jon Sung and Kim Jon Il are areas for elite Communist Party Members and to impress foreign tourism. In the country side you can not move around without a passport out of fear you will defect. They even resort to illegal capitalist black markets called Jangmadang where people barter for food and supplies and only rarely use the Korean Won often prefering the Chinese Won or bartering goods without money. Being part of the Jangmadang can lead to being imprisoned unless you bribe Chinese officials.
It’s none of any of you alls business how another country operates. Americans need to learn from the consequences of attempting to and successfully overthrowing governments. Since WWII, when America enters a country, it leaves that country worse than when it entered.
Reminds me of the Middle East. Look how they treat their People. Back in the States We kill on sight. Those Who fail to "follow orders". Cops place a Blanket on Dead man in NY Subway station for hours before removing body. @80% of Americans are One paycheck away from inability to pay bills or bankruptcy. I'm finding hard to just put ALL these issues as N. Korean only.
Thanks to USA Imposed Sanctions. N. Korea gets to have SHORTAGES of Humanitarian & Basic Human Resources. But, But N. Korea! Labor Camps? We have them here in USA! This video is making Me more aware of US policy & Police/Govt. issues. Along with how similar they are to N.Korea! Gee, Kids forced to perform? Are they In CAGES TOO or being RAPED?
Media control......Only the SAME as USA's polices. Damn, this is a FAIL VIDEO from start to finish. Tamir Rice & Jack Yaniss would wonder how differently they would have been killed. Video Fail!
Hmmm, America destroyed ALL N. KOREAN infrastructure & KILLED 1/3RD Of it's Entire Population before We called "time out". Wonder Why they don't trust Us? But, but Kim Jung-Un is a brutal "Dictator"! Ok. That makes Our policy towards them A-Ok! Ok. USA! USA! Sad. Epic Fail Here! Elliot Abrahms is this Your video?
I can't say I'm surprised at any of these facts; however, it is definitely thought-provoking, with regard to the extent to which these things go. I pray that one day, this world finds its peaceful balance. Unfortunately, that may require that we (humans) be gone. I hope I'm wrong.
When i was 9 years old my family and i took a trip to North Korea (we were from Wisconsin, United States) and before the plane landed, we circled the tarmac 4 times... Eventually, the pilot came on the intercom and apologized for any inconveniences... He said he was a cat fish de-wormer and that chicken will spawn in the 5th eclipse following the blood moon harvest!
I'm sorry. Allow me to be a troll for a second. Your topics are so enticing. And the content material extremely well thought-through and researched. It's just (again apologies) the presentation, specifically in the style of narration. You have a very specific, affected way of speaking when narrating. It has been bugging me for months!!! And I've tried to sit through quite a bunch of videos, but give up and move on. There is this thing you do when speaking. You tend to breathe at the most unlikely and unnatural points needed, obviously done for interspersion of dramatic effect. But it is done to a point of unbearability. It leaves the listener drained and taxed. Example: "...and became (BREATH) the director of..." At times you even breathe mid-word! Lol. Consider this in the spirit of positive feedback please. Fix your style of narration, guy!
I’m not debating the accuracy of any of these claims, but I can’t help but think that some of this may be embellished for affect. Not necessarily embellished by you per se, but some of this just sounds like it’s too far out there to be an actuality. Take for example, the “three generations rule”. This would imply that procreation happens while enslaved, knowing full well any children being conceived would be subject to the same deplorable treatment. People are actually finding time to have sex, carry to term and deliver babies in this environment? Something doesn’t add up with that. My gut just tells me we’re not getting the full story here. Just my opinion.
There have been defectors saying women are raped in the Prison Camp by NK soldiers. Plus, if you are already born at age 5 and your grandfather commits a crime on your birthday you are still the third generation sentanced to mass arrest.
They do know what's going on in the outside world. They have a huge black market drug ring, meth being one of the things they produce. Local markets have alcohol and other goodies. Stuff gets tossed over the border on a regular basis. They have radios.
