The Headache State

By simply: Sylvia McCleary

DidВ youВ knowВ thatВ KimВ JongВ ILВ wasВ bornВ ofВ theВ Gods? AccordingВ toВ gawker. com, В legendВ hasВ itВ thatВ KimВ JongВ ILВ wasВ bornВ inВ aВ logВ cabinВ insideВ aВ secretВ baseВ onВ theВ sacredВ Mt. В PaektuВ andВ asВ heВ wasВ bornВ intoВ theВ worldВ aВ brandВ newВ starВ wasВ created. В TheВ seasonsВ thenВ spontaneouslyВ changedВ fromВ winterВ toВ spring, В thenВ aВ doubleВ rainbowВ appeared, В followedВ byВ aВ talkingВ icebergВ (gawker). В WhileВ thisВ isВ incrediblyВ unbelievable, В NorthВ KoreanВ childrenВ areВ taughtВ thisВ dailyВ inВ theirВ schoolsВ asВ aВ truth. В ToВ usВ itВ seemsВ fantastical, В toВ themВ itВ isВ aВ reality. В ThisВ isВ notВ aboutВ someВ imaginaryВ character, В butВ aboutВ theВ formerВ PresidentВ ofВ NorthВ Korea. В AВ countryВ withВ theВ 5thВ largestВ armyВ inВ theВ world. В ThisВ clearlyВ illustratesВ theВ instabilityВ ofВ NorthВ KoreaВ andВ theВ reasonВ whyВ weВ shouldВ takeВ NorthВ KoreaВ veryВ seriously. В TheВ UnitedВ StatesВ needsВ toВ exertВ moreВ politicalВ pressureВ asВ wellВ asВ becomeВ moreВ informedВ aboutВ theВ NorthВ KoreanВ crisisВ dueВ toВ theВ factВ thatВ NorthВ KoreaВ threatensВ worldВ peaceВ byВ atrociousВ humanВ rightsВ violations, В exhibitsВ aВ constantВ stateВ ofВ war, В andВ isВ demonstratingВ aВ propagandaВ campaignВ thatВ servesВ asВ aВ modelВ forВ otherВ dictatorialВ regimesВ throughoutВ theВ world. В

NorthВ KoreaВ destabilizesВ globalВ politicsВ byВ atrociousВ humanВ rightsВ violations. В AccordingВ toВ aВ websiteВ calledВ CivilВ Liberty, В NorthВ KoreaВ violatesВ theВ peopleВ ofВ theirВ country'sВ humanВ rightsВ withВ fiveВ distinctВ andВ terribleВ means. В TheВ firstВ exampleВ isВ theВ loyaltyВ groupsВ " theВ NorthВ KoreanВ governmentВ dividesВ itsВ citizensВ intoВ threeВ castesВ basedВ onВ

their perceived loyalty to their dear leader:  " core"  (​ haeksim kyechung​

),  " wavering"  (​

tongyoВ

kyechung​

),  and " hostile"  (​

joktae kyechung​

)”(civilliberty). В TheВ wealthyВ areВ mostlyВ inВ theВ

famille, В " core” andВ theВ onesВ inВ " hostile” areВ theВ membersВ ofВ differentВ faithsВ andВ descendantsВ ofВ perceivedВ enemiesВ ofВ theВ state. В TheВ oneВ inВ theВ caste, В " hostile” areВ deniedВ jobsВ andВ areВ subjectedВ toВ starvation. В В

Also, В theВ NorthВ KoreanВ regimeВ usesВ aВ particularlyВ devastatingВ processВ inВ whichВ citizensВ areВ categorizedВ accordingВ toВ theirВ loyaltyВ toВ theirВ government. В ThroughВ theВ ministryВ ofВ В people'sВ securityВ NorthВ KoreansВ areВ forcedВ toВ spyВ notВ onlyВ onВ theirВ fellowВ citizensВ butВ onВ theirВ ownВ familyВ members. В В AccordingВ toВ CivilВ Liberty, В " AnyoneВ whoВ isВ overheardВ sayingВ anythingВ perceivedВ asВ criticalВ toВ theВ governmentВ isВ subjectВ toВ aВ reducedВ loyaltyВ groupВ rating, В torture, В execution, В orВ imprisonmentВ inВ oneВ ofВ NorthВ Korea'sВ thirtyВ brutalВ laborВ camps”. В В ByВ usingВ loyaltyВ groupВ ratingsВ theВ governmentВ ensuresВ thatВ thereВ willВ neverВ beВ aВ unitedВ citizenryВ andВ becauseВ ofВ thatВ noВ democraticВ reforms. В В TheВ thirdВ methodВ isВ theВ controllingВ flowВ ofВ informationВ inВ NorthВ Korea. В CivilВ LibertyВ statesВ thatВ everyВ tvВ station, В radiosВ channels, В newspapersВ andВ magazinesВ allВ focusВ onВ KimВ JongВ UnВ andВ howВ amazingВ heВ is. В IfВ anyoneВ insideВ NorthВ KoreaВ makesВ contactsВ withВ theВ touristsВ orВ listensВ toВ foreignВ radioВ stationsВ theyВ areВ inВ dangerВ ofВ imprisonment. В ThisВ keepsВ allВ outsideВ ideasВ awayВ fromВ theВ localВ population. В " TravelingВ outsideВ ofВ NorthВ KoreaВ isВ alsoВ forbidden, В andВ canВ carryВ aВ penaltyВ ofВ death”. В В

TheВ fourthВ reasonВ isВ theВ militaryВ state. В DespiteВ theВ smallВ budgetВ NorthВ KoreaВ hasВ andВ theВ smallВ population, В NorthВ Korea'sВ armyВ isВ claimedВ toВ haveВ 1. 3В millionВ soldiersВ whichВ wouldВ makeВ itВ theВ fifthВ largestВ armyВ inВ theВ world. В NorthВ KoreaВ alsoВ hasВ aВ " thrivingВ militaryВ researchВ programВ thatВ includesВ theВ developmentВ ofВ nuclearВ weaponsВ andВ longВ­rangeВ missiles”(civilliberty). В В

TheВ fifthВ procedureВ isВ thatВ thereВ isВ noВ ruleВ ofВ law. В TheВ NorthВ KoreanВ governmentВ hasВ thirtyВ prisonВ laborВ campsВ eachВ holdingВ atВ leastВ aВ thousandВ prisonersВ andВ theВ mostВ holdsВ 55, 000В prisoners. В TheВ conditionsВ insideВ theВ laborВ campsВ areВ terribleВ andВ inВ mostВ casesВ consideredВ inhumane. В HereВ areВ someВ examplesВ ofВ theВ tortureВ methodsВ andВ hardshipsВ inВ theВ...
