If you have any doubts about how awful it must be to live in North Korea, take a look at the photograph posted below. It shows the current absolute Stalinist leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, posing with a North Korean family.
It’s a shame when you can’t honestly and really feel happy around an individual in a photo. I bet none of them are related, and its all a beautiful front. Who can honestly look overjoyed around a tyrant like that. Without feeling like your life and others might be at stake. He must think he is god, but whatever the reason. God giveth, and will take away. We need to always keep that in mind, and stop trying to walk in his shoes.
I agree: the photo is fabricated to be used as propaganda. What is horribly funny is the lack of skill or care in staging the photo. The North Korean kleptocracy elite are so secure in their near-absolute power that they don’t care if those people look terrified. They may actually like the photo better because those people look terrified.
God didn’t give Kim Jong Un this power. His grandfather gave it to him by using the military to craft the system that allows this horror to continue. And God won’t take that power away any time soon because the Chinese and the United States prefer North Korea to be this way rather than deal with the mess that would result if the North Korean government was replaced or collapsed.
