Children of the Secret State

This guy probably wont be invited back to North Korea

A few months ago I saw ‘Children of the Secret State‘, a discovery channel documentary that took a look inside North Korea and how the so-called ‘socialist paradise on earth’ treats its orphans. This is definitely a video that I wanted readers of Occidentalism to see. Now amazingly, this video has been made available on the google video service (Note: I have been told that the google video service is not being offered to Korea at this time – most other countries should be fine).

You heard it on Occidentalism first. It is very worthwhile viewing, so take a look.

    Thanks for the video – nothing we didn’t know already that we couldn’t read in print or see from other sources.

    I wonder what trouble that self glorifying arsehole narrator got his minders into. Thoughtless cunt.

    Its terrible to see children living in those conditions, but i fail to see how that is at all isolated to North Korea and hence communism. There are plently of western countries where this type of poverty exsists…..I guess it dispells the myth of the workers paradise.

    ( I am not sure there are Korean version or English version of this article)

    If I remeber correctly,
    Several people were shot dead without trial in public while mnay North Korean citizens including kids were watching.And many convicts were force to sit and watch this excusion.

    When one North Korean who run away from North saw this film, he cried. He said, when he was in the North, he did not feel anything at seeing these excutions, it was one of every day lives,but now ・・・・・・・(tears welled up, and no word)

    South Korean government know this fact,but Roh keep smiling as always, while blaming Koizumi for paying respects to all the war dead..
