North Korea; or, Socialism In Action!
Physical Abuse of a Woman by the North Korean Military - Pictures taken on August 17, at a border military station
Via Swimming against the Red Tide, a Brazilian conservative's blog, with more lovely photos available here: http://againstred.blogspot.com/2005/09/north-corea-doesnt-allowed-us-to.html :
That's the real socialism. The way defined as "social-democracy" is just a slower lane to reach the same spot: total control over the human being by a giant state.This is what happens when the disguise of "egalitarianism" is left behind.
I know this is America's fault somehow...oh, right, aren't we supposed to be giving into their demands on nuclear weapons? If we don't, they'll keep kicking this defenseless woman!
Yet maybe she is lucky; after all, she could have been in North Korea's Camp 22:
In the remote north-eastern corner of North Korea, close to the border of Russia and China, is Haengyong. Hidden away in the mountains, this remote town is home to Camp 22 - North Korea's largest concentration camp, where thousands of men, women and children accused of political crimes are held.
Now, it is claimed, it is also where thousands die each year and where prison guards stamp on the necks of babies born to prisoners to kill them.
Over the past year harrowing first-hand testimonies from North Korean defectors have detailed execution and torture, and now chilling evidence has emerged that the walls of Camp 22 hide an even more evil secret: gas chambers where horrific chemical experiments are conducted on human beings.
Witnesses have described watching entire families being put in glass chambers and gassed. They are left to an agonising death while scientists take notes.
And no one lifts a finger, and America gets blamed, blamed, for being undiplomatic when our President calls them "evil". Remember that, the next time Europe dares lectures us on morality...
