    It's a nation of brainwashed people. They're crying because they're genuinely upset that Kim Jong Il is dead. They reacted the same way when his father died in 1994. Although who knows how much of this is exaggerated just for the cameras so that outside world can see.

    But I'm going to tell myself their tears of joy because that would be more appropriate icon_rolleyes.gif

    I agree it looks staged, but it may be real only because these people simply do not know any other way of life.

    Not at all staged. For the most part.

    Most of these people believe that the Kim family in general, and Kim Il Sung (the founder of the dynasty) are in fact demi-gods.

    The cult of personality built up by the state propaganda machine is nothing short of a messianic worship state of mass hysteria.

    And for the many who do not and are faking it, well... there are numerous camps that they and/or their families can get disappeared off to should they fail to exhibit the appropriate amount of mourning for their Dear (departed) Leader.

    It is not entirely unlike the cult of Emperor-worship the Japanese government cultivated from the Meiji Era through to the early Shōwa Era (1868-1945) to keep the populace enslaved to the militarist regime.

    This seems a lot closer to reality than to think that every man and woman is wailing at the exact same time and with the same degree of passion.

    Just think of that movie "Jesus Camp" (correct?) and replace Jesus with the appropriate imagery and references to Kim Jong Il and you'll get the idea.

    Cults and religious Fanaticism work the same magic all over the world, it just takes repetition of propaganda mixed with some religious like dogma whether it be toward following some person or some belief system, it all works the same and the 'sheeples' that are in every country of the world will fall right in line, Look how in the US its the fundi Far Right that swallow hook line and sinker all the NEO CON Wars and the 'Keep us Safe' propaganda with the result of the sheeples freely giving up Democratic Principles with little said against it. the latest being indefinate incarceration of whomever the President or the Military may deem involved in supposed terrorism. This takes away Constitutional Habeas Corpus rights

    The cult like results that you bring up regarding the people of NK, should be an eye opener to us for introspection, Most people tend to be followers (sheeples), look at the reaction in the Republican Party to Ron Paul an independent minded person raising alarms when the wool is being pulled over the publics eyes and he's considered an outsider and labeled as not mainstream because he's exposing facts that go against the Fundi right.

    Our country is in the middle of down times which seems to draw follower types toward religiousity, in our case the Far Right Fundi's and we all see the strong leanings toward the far right that the Fundi's are taking us to in our politics. We're no where near the Cult status that your referring to with the North Koreans but we have danger signs showing up all over the place. We've all read articles about how even Reagan wouldn't be accepted in the TBagger/Fundi Christian Right swing of the Republican Party. We should all put up our guard and fight against further right swings toward cult like following.

    Yes this was a bit off topic but its a point that needs to be exposed wherever we can, because just like the Cult like followers in NK will swallow anything their leaders feed them, we are seeing whats being swallowed here in the US from the war mongers and etc..

    "repetition of propaganda mixed with some religious like dogma "



    good description of political "commentary" in the U.S. Hysterical extremes - phrases like"going to the brink" = "brought to ruination."


    In fact none of those extremes is truly the case, and no sane discussion is possible over the screeching.

    Kim Jung Il is one human being whose death was long overdue. This man was a self serving, vicious dictator who starved most of his people to death and forced them to live in worse than third world poverty. Most of the people crying and mourning Kim's death live in Pyongyang, the national capital. They are perhaps the most brainwashed of all the North Korean people. In the impoverished and outlaying rural areas of North Korea, I doubt that the folks out there who are starving and suffering are as saddened by this egomaniac's death.

    Many members of the elite might think that their histrionic and ridiculous leader's death is tragic, a few starving workers might actually agree, but I for one think that his death is a great thing for his country, South Korea, and Japan.
