Hamburgers Were Invented By Kim Jong Il In 2009! : North Korean Photo Essay
Multiple link post here - both concerning French photographer Eric Lafforgue -
In this first link are a series of photos that had not been released until recently.
Lafforgue had traveled to North Korea six times before but this series of photos ultimately got him banned for life!
In the amazing set of pictures you'll note the never-ending reasons why the North Koreans were upset with Lafforgue's photos.
You wouldn't have had much opportunity to shoot anything if you followed the prescribed subjects of the government.

**********************************************************



This Photographer Got Banned Because He Took These Photos. No One Has Seen Them Until Now.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


The next link presumably follows Lafforgue into North Korea before he was baned.
In this photo essay he was escorted by Miss Kim, a 20 year old student who was given the opportunity to travel with the photographer throughout her country for being a perfect citizen.

Some of their exchanges were interesting because she was so solidly sold on the propaganda served up by her 'superiors'.
She believes Kim Jong Il invented the burger in 2009, Mickey Mouse is the creation of China, Lady Gaga is male and that cycling does not give you good legs (what?) --

The poor girl comes off as a bit of a prat and snob I'm afraid.
The culture strikes me as deluded and insecure, quite sad really.

I agree communism is terrible. But it's only terrible because of the evil men who seize total power and make themselves gods. If Kim Jung Un simply handed his power to a communist congress that was made up of the people of the nation ( Communism is supposed to be the greatest ideology in history because it provides for everyone. But that's only if everyone is on board. So yes communism is a danger when the power is given to evil men. But if communism was tweaked just alittle bit the world would be a million times better. China wouldn't be a threat, nor would North Korea. In fact a communist congress having executive power as well as legislative powers in NK could lead to reunification. America does need to step up to Un, but sadly if that fat fuck won't die the only option is war or some kind of overthrow, which wouldn't end well as the upper class would seize power and the cycle would repeat. I'm surprised America doesn't have a sleeper organization like it does in Iran. In the case of NK, and Iran I would agree to a US lead military coup, but of course we would need regional powers on board.

Why would I be golfing and raising, or giving money when I'm a right wing ( States Rights ) historian? I have no interest in furthering the agenda of the republicans nor the democrats. I feel the people should decide, not elected representatives. Direct voting policy is what I'm for. " Oh theres a vote in congress for a new bill? I wonder how the PEOPLE will vote " rather than " Oh theres a vote in congress for a new bill? I wonder how the PUPPET MASTERS will vote ". Oh, and by the way republicans, direct voting policy socialist. But it works better than this shit of a congress we have right now. Even with repubs controlling theres no stopping either parties evil agenda.

Who is to say that we are not just as duped as the Norks? I'm serious here. We have been told all manner of lies over the many years. Libraries have been burned, civilizations lost and their knowledge lost. They think Kimmy invented the burger...many think Al Gore invented the internet, so what's the difference.

I met a guy who went there just to see what it was like. He flew in from Russia on a plane with wood paneled sides and propellers.

He said the people there over and over wanted to see his teeth. I asked him why and he said because they thought that Americans had fangs. No bullshit.

I have no idea why that regimn does this to their own people like this. They would be so much richer if they feed their people and opened up economically. I wish there was a book explaining the north Korean mind and their political philosophy. It's gotta be similar to a 14th century monarchy or something.

The Korean Peninsula is the perfect example to illustrate the difference between capitalism and communism/socialism/collectivism or 'big government knows best'.

The north is one of the jokes of the world and the south has cutting edge technology with a vibrant economy...its people want for nothing.
Fear God and Dread Nought.
