Dear reader

Quote:

No country is as misunderstood as North Korea, and no modern tyrant has remained more mysterious than the Dear Leader, Kim Jong Il. Now, celebrity ghostwriter Michael Malice pulls back the curtain to expose the life story of the “Incarnation of Love and Morality.” Taken directly from books spirited out of Pyongyang, DEAR READER is a carefully reconstructed first-person account of the man behind the mythology.

From his miraculous rainbow-filled birth during the fiery conflict of World War II, Kim Jong Il watched as his beloved Korea finally earned its freedom from the cursed Japanese. Mere years later, the wicked US imperialists took their chance at conquering the liberated nation—with devastating results. But that’s only the beginning of the Dear Leader’s story.

In DEAR READER, Kim Jong Il explains:

How he can shrink time
Why he despises the Mona Lisa
How he recreated the arts in Korea
Why the Juche idea is the greatest concept ever discovered by man
How he handled the crippling famine
Why Kim Jong Un was chosen as successor over his elder brothers
With nothing left uncovered, drawing straight from dozens of books, hundreds of articles and thousands of years of Korean history, DEAR READER is both the definitive account of Kim Jong Il’s life and the complete stranger-than-fiction history of the world’s most unique country.

The Juche idea.
Juche ... is the official state ideology of North Korea, described by the government as Kim Il-sung's "original, brilliant and revolutionary contribution to national and international thought." It postulates that "man is the master of his destiny," that the North Korean masses are to act as the "masters of the revolution and construction," and that by becoming self-reliant and strong a nation can achieve true socialism.

Kim Il-sung (1912–1994) developed the ideology, originally viewed as a variant of Marxism–Leninism until it became distinctly "Korean" in character whilst incorporating the historical materialist ideas of Marxism–Leninism and strongly emphasizing the individual, the nation state and its sovereignty. Consequently, Juche was adopted into a set of principles that the North Korean government has used to justify its policy decisions from the 1950s onwards. Such principles include moving the nation towards claimed jaju ("independence"), through the construction of jarip ("national economy") and an emphasis upon jawi ("self-defence") in order to establish socialism.

The practice of Juche is firmly rooted in the ideals of sustainability through agricultural independence and a lack of dependency. The Juche ideology has been criticized by many scholars and observers as a mechanism for sustaining the totalitarian rule of the North Korean regime and justifying the country's heavy-handed isolationism and oppression of the North Korean people. It has also been described as a form of Korean ethnic nationalism, but one which promotes the Kim family as the saviours of the "Korean race" and acts as a foundation of the subsequent personality cult surrounding them

Kim Jong Un should turn his channel to RFDTV and watch AgPhd. Weed of the week is Biennial Wormwood Sage. Kim will also find out that corn does not grow below 56F nor above 86F. Kim has to feed his people and if he buys a Limo make sure it is Flex Fuel which can run on ethanol. Ethanol will put the oil business, out of business.
